Pro Israel? Rupert Murdoch is a Director of Genie Oil illegally exploring in Syria’s occupiedGolan Heights for an oil discovery believed to be bigger than the Saudi’s. Why isn’t this promoted on his global front pages? Support, however of Israel is but not it’s criminal support of terrorist groups in that war. Why is Australia ready to jail and silence anybody talking about their criminal bugging of the East Timor governments offices simply to screw them out of oil. Commercial espionage by our government and no politicians brought to account, how did they not believe they were working on sound princples of International Crime? Even now they are doing what they can to shut any inquiry down. (ODT)
We all know what these wars have been about. Even those who don’t know the specifics can all see oil dripping from between the lines. Oil seeping from the writing on the wall. You pretty much taste petroleum in every mouthful of bullshit we are served. But soon, unfortunately, we will be feeling the crunch ourselves, rather than offshoring the destructiveness associated with our lucky country to the war-torn Middle East. We may want to blame others. We may want to jump on the US bandwagon and point the finger at Iran. But make no mistake, we are not the victims, we are minor villains in this story. Sycophants sucking up to the big boss in the hopes of maintaining our supply of crumbs. Crumbs we are willing to trade millions of lives and the fate of our world for.

And our government is negotiating to purchase the right to some of the US stockpile, which will remain in the salt domes until we call for it to be sent our way on ships, assuming they can get here in time.
In short, if things get a bit more tricky, our choice will be panic buying at the pumps, or going cap in hand to Trump, who cares about nothing but a sweet deal … for him.
You can bet he’ll want a lot more than a pound of flesh – or the Australian military on Iran’s borders – in return.
Anyone got any old skates? It was simpler then.
On Thursday, John Bolton told Fox Business host Trish Regan the administration had the goal of putting U.S. companies in charge of Venezuela’s oil production. Because freedom!
It’s 2003 all over again, right down to the mustachioed John Bolton, who freely admitted to Fox Business host Trish Regan on Thursday night that the ultimate goal of United States activity in Venezuela is to take over their oil production — or, in simpler terms, take their oil.
Wouldn’t Koch Industries love that? After all, they’ve sued Venezuela for millions — basically calling their loans — in order to destabilize their economy and punish President Maduro, who is a terribly brutal leader, but nevertheless elected by the people in an election which has been certified.
Mike Pence, a wholly-sponsored Koch project, was instrumental in injecting the United States into Venezuelan political unrest, according to a Wall Street Journal report.
The Oil Alarm looks at oil’s relationship with our food to warn us how the world we have built on oil is in danger of a catastrophic collapse.

Sunday, April 17, was the designated moment. The world’s leading oil producers were expected to bring fresh discipline to the chaotic petroleum market and spark a return to high prices.
In an unprecedented year for the oil business, each of the major producers has its own problems. How will they react?
