EGYPT AND THE PYRAMID OF POWER

It’s a grim party. People in the streets, riots, police, soldiers, and nobody seems exactly sure what it’s for.
Take your choice: kick out the dictators; new democracy; Islamic theocracy; lower food prices; CIA op.
Those are just a few of the possibilities.
Spontaneous mobs of more than 15,000 people are rarely spontaneous. Somebody is backing it. A guy in a mosque, a guy in a suit, a guy in a Rolls with a chauffeur. Or all three.
The odds that Egypt will emerge with a brand new Constitutional republic or anything resembling it are a million to one against, in Vegas.
However, if you start thinking about the Suez Canal and big ships loaded with oil having a hard time getting through—and you reflect on what that will do to oil prices…now you may be on to something, because in order to make the dream of alternative energy come true in the way these things do come true (with lots of conditions attached), gas at the pump has to go up to around eight dollars a gallon. It’s a rig-job. Nothing to do with the free market. Globalists are devoted, of course, to alternative energies like solar, wind, geothermal—not because they’re affordable, but because they level the playing field for nations, and put US industry under the gun.
Real globalists don’t want more energy, they want less.
The game isn’t a tough one to play. Stop offshore drilling in the US, put oil and gas producing US lands into federal ownership, where they will sit there and produce nothing, raise hell in the Middle East, providing a pretext for higher oil prices, and you’ve got yourself a self-fulfilling prophecy. Poof—“affordable” alternative energy.
US presidents are globalists. Bush, Obama, Clinton, the other Bush—you don’t get in the door unless you’re on board with that agenda.
The trick, if you’re a big-time globalist, is to manipulate the price of oil without letting it get completely out of hand. You want it to go up, come back down—but not quite as much—then send it up again…so that over the long term, the trend is definitely a rising one.
