According to Department of the Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, “no one knows” – not even Harry Potter – if gas prices in the United States will reach an astronomical and economy-crushing $9 per gallon.
“I don’t think anyone can speculate what will happen with respect to oil prices and gas prices because they are set on the global economy,” said Salazar. “Where it will all end, no one knows.”
Following his prepared government script, Salazar also blamed “unrest in places like the Middle East and Iran” for escalating oil prices. He said increased demand for oil from China, India and Brazil has jacked up prices.
We shouldn’t expect Mr. Salazar or his boss Obama to tell the truth about oil prices. As Lindsey Williams explains, the price is set by the “bourse,” that is to say the global elite.
In April of 2011, Bilderberger sleuth Jim Tucker revealed that the elite planned to crank up the price of oil to around $7 per gallon.
“By the end of the year 2012,” Tucker told Alex Jones on his nationally syndicated radio show, “they (the Bilderbergers and the elite) want us paying $7 a gallon for gasoline… what they want to do is bring the American standard of living down to the standard of the so-called third world… they want the whole world to have the same standard of living.”
Gas prices may not reach $7 by the end of the year. It is possible, however, they will reach $5 or more.
In order to usher in a new feudal society and implement authoritarian control over humanity, the global elite must slash the standard of living across the board. They plan to do this through the United Nations and Agenda 21 and demands for “sustainable development.”
In 2007, Jose Barroso, president of the European Commission and a Bilderberg member, called for a “post-industrial revolution” under the guise of eliminating so-called greenhouse gases.
Maurice Strong, a commissioner of the World Commission on Environment and Development at the United Nations, has said that “current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work-place air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable. A shift is necessary toward lifestyles less geared to environmentally damaging consumption patterns.”
During the 2006 Bilderberg meeting in Ottawa, Canada, the elite agreed to push for $105 a barrel before the end of 2008.
Crude oil futures peaked at over $77 in July 2006, and in December 2006 at about $63. In September 2007, U.S. crude crossed $80. Less than a year later, on July 11, 2008, oil prices rose to a new record of $147.27. The price settled to around $125 a barrel on July 24, 2008. In March of that year, Goldman Sachs predicted a “super-spike” in crude prices that would push the price over $200 a barrel.
In order to put this into perspective, consider that oil stood at $17 a barrel in January of 1999.
Salazar and Obama would have you believe Iran and the middle class in Brazil are responsible for rapidly escalating oil prices and not even Harry Potter can do anything about it.
This is a lie. Oil prices are being cynically manipulated by the “bourse” – the global elite – in an effort to further rob you of your treasure and reduce you and your children and their children to a future of crushing peonage.
