THOUGHTS ON “WAR & PETROLEUM RESERVES”
Gails Waters FEBRUARY 16, 2015 AT 9:10 PM The price of oil deflating could be a response by oil producing nations to a “heads up” that the future of energy isn’t only by means of oil but by means of competition by other sources such as new technologies that should bring energy prices to levels of the early 1950’s.
Personally I don’t see war as a result of the accumulation of oil reserves, it is more about increasing the value within the SDR for anyone nation.
Oil will still be a valuable commodity even in the face of new competition so why not grab it at the best price available
irrelevant111 FEBRUARY 16, 2015 AT 11:07 PM Don’t see the oil accumulation as a possible prelude to war. Back in the day, I would agree.
Also, don’t see demand going down, almost everything known to man is a byproduct of oil.
I see it as a manipulation and nothing more.

People are awesome:
Matt McBride (@MattMhmmcbride) FEBRUARY 16, 2015 AT 11:47 PM Great article JC.
I appreciate that you objectively take both sides and spend your limited time researching all angles.
As we discussed before in a prior post, all out war however does not fit with the west allowing gold to simply shift to China (the potential enemy).
Also on reflection, the multilateral system is not just about balancing the unstable USD effects on the financial world. It is also about bringing together nations to work more efficiently together. The promotion of “multiculturalism”.
Minsk part 2; an eventual euro bailout by the BRICS; and the coming together of nations to fight ISIS/Ebola is slowly tearing down the us vs them (west vs east) narrative.
What if the hero in the upcoming collapse (from a German/Belgium/French perspective) is the “old cold war enemies” Russia/China being first to jump to action – saving the day with much needed funds and leading the world via G20 and IMF reforms.
NB Some interesting points:
*China will be presiding over the G20 in 2016. A great opportunity to show case their new identity – global advocate for emerging economies
*Chinese commercial banks have been withdrawing significant amounts of gold from the SGE over the last few year. Gold that is supposedly for “financial transactions and collateral”. As the Chinese commercial banks are state owned, this gold can simply become part of the Chinese foreign reserves declared with the IMF.
JC Collins FEBRUARY 17, 2015 AT 1:51 AM Thanks Matt. Even though the broader facts and data support our ongoing thesis, the idea expressed in this post is something I’ve been thinking about lately and I just needed to get it out there. Doesn’t hurt to think all the angles through. The threat of war will be maximized to help facilitate the multilateral transition.
Matt McBride (@MattMhmmcbride) FEBRUARY 17, 2015 AT 4:44 AM I too have daily internal thought battles on whether there will be a war or not.
I have recently finished Adam LeBors Tower of Basel: The Shadowy History of the Secret Bank that runs the World.
From the perspective of the BIS, private bankers, certain corporations, and key politicians/technocrats a large war coinciding with (or just after) a crash would be more financially beneficial (and allow for greater control and leverage when the dust settles and the system is reset) than purely a crash and system reset scenario.
Despite the large wars benefits to those mentioned above, the multilateral system would take additional years to be stomached by the masses.
It would take 1-2 generations after the completion of the war for people to forgive the “enemy nations and their citizens”.
This racial hate and adversion would make diplomacy more difficult for national representatives at the IMF/UN meetings (in order to please home sentiment) despite their indifference due to financial and power motivations/incentives.
For instance, after WW2 the US was the only strong economy left in tact. This allowed them to dictate terms for the new unipolar system.
After WW3, a multilateral system that includes friends and foes could back fire and fragment.
Ozymandias 3 FEBRUARY 18, 2015 AT 3:16 AM Mr. Collins; You are quite correct when you write that, “The threat of war will be maximized to help facilitate the multilateral transition”.
There are those identified as “neocons” who foolishly believe that “the USA can survive a nuclear war”. Such fools also believe that they and their kind will not be negatively affected.
The reasons for placing intercept missile launcher in Eastern Europe, Indian Ocean, Western Pacific, Northern Alaska, and in the Artic are to intercept any missiles launched from Russia or China towards the USA. Shallow thinking. China has been performing naval attack drill off of the Left Coast of the USA including EMF burst.
Relative to Matt’s post above, the Russians and ChiComs have been purchasing and taking delivery of Gold in the thousands of tonnes.
Some sources claim that the actual amount held by bot Russia and China exceeds 20,000 tonnes. I can easily see the return of a psuedo Gold Standard after the $USD finally and completely collapses.
hugovictor54 FEBRUARY 17, 2015 AT 12:22 AM Fox News says that Putin is a sociopath and powerless to resist NATO and the U.S.
Ozymandias 3 FEBRUARY 18, 2015 AT 3:21 AM hugo: Propaganda, deceptions, and lies at some of their finest. FOX News is as much of the enabling agent and front groups for the PTSNB as MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS, and all of the other MSM outlets. The dumb *** and masses are fed what they are suppose to believe for their common good.
seacret2015 FEBRUARY 17, 2015 AT 12:29 AM Dear JC, here we go again. When you have the time, would you please read this, and then comment on it. Thank you. MS.
JC Collins FEBRUARY 17, 2015 AT 12:54 AM There is so much wrong with the analysis of this particular person. The amount of facts and structural realities which are left out of the analysis makes it extremely challenging to take any of it seriously.
This particular link you’ve provided is from a year ago, and we can clearly see that some of his fundamental arguments have already been made irrelevant, such as QE to infinity.
The loud and child like name calling behavior of this character always reminds me of this clip from the movie The Princess Bride. The character traits of both the analyst and the fictional character in the movie are very similar. And I would suspect that the analytical conclusions will suffer the same fate as the character in the movie.

johnnyorl1 FEBRUARY 17, 2015 AT 1:37 AM From my research the reason why the oil was going down and now going back up is cause Saudi know that their oil reserve will be depleted by the end of 2016 thats why they are making a run for the end which will be the end of the saudis oil they are trying to make the most money they can now if u can find something that goes against what im saying please post it
JC Collins FEBRUARY 17, 2015 AT 1:46 AM There’s lots of info which go against your conclusions. Virtually all of it in fact.
Unfortunately I have other things to do beside provide you with research information. Oil hasn’t bottomed yet. And why would Saudi Arabia try to make the most money possible at low oil prices? Sorry Johnny, but your whole statement doesn’t fit the facts.
Alaskaroots FEBRUARY 17, 2015 AT 5:03 AM The oil market is being manipulated because the oil industry has done so much to manipulate the masses since its inception.
A taste of their own medicine. New technologies are already here. It would be wise for those at the top of this industry to realize a massive shift is coming. All would prefer to make this a smooth transition.
They can still contribute for the good, even now. We will still need oil for a time, so I beseach those, choose humanity and not profits.
There will be no war. There will be an evolution. One which we have never seen the likes of, and of a magnitude that most can’t even comprehend right now. War is so pre-2012. Certain energies are here to make sure things are set straight.
Cooper (@coopersmith648) FEBRUARY 17, 2015 AT 7:19 AM It actually looks like Saudi Arabia isn’t in any particular hurry to see oil prices turn around Saudi Arabia can last eight years on low oil prices, says former adviser.
The Peak Oil theory is most likely the flavour of thinking behind depleted oil reserves by 2016.
Here’s a bad call made by Deutsche Bank:
“…the take from Deutsche Bank’s new report, ‘The Peak Oil Market’….”
“…That will send oil to $175 a barrel by 2016—and will simultaneously put the final nail in oil’s coffin and send prices plummeting back to $70 by 2030…”

earthstepper FEBRUARY 17, 2015 AT 5:04 AM @JC: I just started reading your blog. I have been slowly going through your older posts as time has become available. There are very few blogs that keep my interest, but yours is one of them.
A variable that is rarely included within many prognostications about the future is the indication that our current system of exchanging goods and services, in essence an economy…is actually being permanently concluded, it is over and not set to return.
In other words, we are witnessing the deliberate reduction and phasing out of the economic reality due to expected events here on planet earth…and that this depression is not just another deployment of their restructuring apparatus to consolidate and centralize the economic, scientific and political inadequacies within the realm, which history has shown to have been applied in Rome, Florence via Venice, Amsterdam, London and America (among others).
Pointing to the elephant in the room now, “global warming”; when did it get introduced into our reality? What was the zeitgeist of the scientific community at that point in time (mid to late 70’s)?
Why was it an issue that Empire began to host conferences to legislate for and to produce movies that marketed it to the masses?
What is the message that we receive from television about impending “global warming”?
After all, it is the key source of the reality they want us to imbue. Well, we know that their television loves vaccines, religion, terrorism, GMO’s, voting and it especially loves global warming.
Empire establishes and adroitly markets various camps with two teams or positions to cheer for…on any one issue of our day, doing so to ensnare those who it cannot intellectually subjugate with the mainstream program or message.
Regarding the topic of “global warming”; the non-MSM position was that Empire was out to earn more money by creating new taxes (with laws to enforce them) at varying levels of society to combat the issue and in effect exercise more control over our lives.
I do not logically reason this to be the case and I must pay homage to a Canadian researcher named Rolf Witzsche, who delivers an important piece of the puzzle that has an area of focus which logically seems to be the instigator for Empire to prematurely derail their ‘modus operandi’
and deviate from their use of ‘modern economy et. al’ to achieve any last developments of our domestication and programming on our march towards achieving their intended goal…
of becoming the preeminent trans-humanistic slave in this area of the galaxy with a perfect balance of biological tissue and technology (via Human Genetic Engineering/ Human Enhancement Technologies).
The elephant in the room is not global warming; it may actually be the onset of an ice age, which will entail conditions that render mass agricultural unmanageable due to the fact that crop yields depend on stable weather patterns and weather has now become increasingly unstable.
The transitionary period into an ice age may be upon us and it may be the dominant causative issue affecting Empire and their decision to discontinue this version of their system.
Governments of the world may program the citizenry into thinking ‘they’ are in control of everything and there is nothing outside of ‘their’ control. However, the reality may be that ‘they’ are preparing and have been preparing for decades…for what may befall modern civilization here on earth.
The current state of the slowed, meandering jet stream, which is producing unstable and extreme weather could be a key indicator of our progression into the ‘entrance’ or ‘transitionary period’ of a cyclical ice age (whether it be labeled with the word mini, Dalton, Maunder, etc).
This cyclical weather phenomenon has actually been setting the timeline of their actions across the globe. Research has already proven that the abrupt entrance into an ice age environment can occur in just a 20-year period of time. Are we at or near that threshold?
Realizing that this version of Empire is quickly nearing its end, Empire has been furtively and now urgently deploying as much of their chicanery as possible to ensure the effective continuation and assimilation of their ‘power et al.’ as planet earth drifts into a much colder, unstable climate that would not permit their current version of Empire to continue any longer.
Empire has gutted their financial system, yet created an accounting unit, so the score may be recorded until the next version of Empire begins to emerge. Will a reality, one that quasi resembles our way of life now, surface immediately?
In striving to employ the deductive reasoning faculties ascertained from the study and application of the Quadrivium and Trivium…I cannot portend this to be the case.
Comments may be made at the end of Part 2 Thank You
