How Plunging Oil Prices Could Lead to World War III

Let’s revel in our good fortune as oil prices continue to plunge. Oil prices have dipped under $50. If we are spending less for oil, we have more to spend on other things such as eating out, shopping and vacations. On the surface, it looks the American consumer finally got a break.

The Trojan Horse of Low Oil Prices

Before we pop the Champagne, we should consider the fact that someone in a position of authority thinks that the present economic situation could lead to economic devastation inside the United States and the proof for this is readily apparent. The Army Times publication, that would be our Army has been concentrating on fighting in ‘megacities’ of 20 million or more people against “criminal and extremist groups” who can “influence the lives of the population while undermining the authority of the state.” I take the Army’s quote to mean that hungry, desperate people are going to be looking for ways to satisfy their basic means and these people must be stopped. And who would be the terrorists that they are practicing against? The new terrorists, according to DHS, are Christians, Constitutionalists, and in particular, Second Amendment supporters.

Low Oil Prices Equals Economic Death by Deflation

We live in a country where the three thousand mile salad is common place. Your grocery stores and large retail stores receive several deliveries per day in an economic practice known as “Just In Time Delivery”. Nearly everything you eat and wear is shipped. The middle man concept (i.e. the transporter of goods) forms the backbone of our service economy. However, if the price oil goes too low, the economy will slow down to the point, where at first, spot shortages will rule the day. Eventually, very little will be shipped because it does not make sense to do so because of the deflationary impact on prices. Low oil prices, if they continue, will wreak havoc on the economy. One can prove to themselves that most “experts” agree that the economy is vulnerable to oil prices which reach $40 dollars for a barrel of oil by “Googling” the topic.

 

We Have Been Down This Road Before

In the lead up to the greatest bank heist in history, the  financial crisis of 2008, the price of oil plunged in a manner reminiscent of today’s trend curve. Additionally, the new prices for industrial commodities went through a devastating deflation and the U.S. dollar soared, like a race car, in comparison to other currencies.  History is repeating itself and history clearly shows that unless we reverse our course, our economic fate is sealed. If the trend of low plunging oil prices continues, we will have two choices, bailout “the too-big-to-fail” Wall Street firms or let everything come crashing down like it did in Iceland.

In Iceland, they weathered the storm after jailing the bankers responsible for destroying the Icelandic economy. Iceland is economically healthier today than ever before. However, I am not sure letting nature take its course on Wall Street, would work like it did in Iceland. Iceland is a country of 400,000 people with few international entanglements. The United States has 315 million people and has a global economy.

I have been reading the projections out of Wall Street and they exhibiting sure signs of cognitive dissonance as they proclaim that everything is fine.  And yet somehow many financial analysts are still convinced that things will be different, today, than they were in 2008, I agree. The Financial Crash of 2015, will make 2008 look like a picnic in comparison.

The Real Reason Behind the 2015 Crash

The media would have you believe that the sole reason oil is down is because  supplies are up and demand is down.  There is no doubt that these two economic conditions exist in combination with each other. However, there is the reason the American people are told, through the corporate controlled media, and there is the real, more pressing reason.

Over the past six weeks, two of my military sources have told me to watch oil prices. Both sources stated that oil prices could become the fulcrum for economic collapse, martial law and World War III which would result as a result of the desperation of a failed economy.

Conclusion

Russia and the other BRICS are struggling as they having to reach into their reserve cash, gold and oil to survive these low oil prices. My sources also tell me that Russia needs $100 dollar a barrel oil to prosper. The BRICS have been successful in undermining the use of the Petrodollar in places like Iran and Venezuela. The Petrodollar is on the ropes. However,with these low oil prices, the worm has turned and the major reason that Russia and her allies are under an economic attack is due to the Ukrainian situation. In 2013, I wrote several articles detailing how Ukraine was pivotal in Putin’s desire to rebuild the Soviet Union empire  because 60% of Russian gas flowing into Europe, first flows through Ukraine. Conversely, the Western banking establishment wants Ukraine to join the European Union. and, as such, control the price and flow of gas. Both sides are willing to sponsor a civil war in Ukraine and risk World War III.  Putin has effectively stalemated the West and the West has retaliated with low oil prices.

 

The practice of low oil prices has devastated the BRICS. The question remains, who will blink first? How far into his reserves will Putin go? How far will the Western bankers allow oil to fall and for how long? Are the bankers willing to devastate the American economy in order to break the BRICS opposition to the Petrodollar as well as the ultimate control over Russian gas going into Ukraine?  Predicting dates is a fool’s errand. However, if events continue in the present direction, we could witness an economic collapse that will come like a thief in the night, unparalleled civil unrest and movement down the road towards World War III. In short, low oil prices could indeed lead to World War III.

    I have heard other reasons for why dropping oil prices will hurt the economy.

    But if oil prices go down, wouldn’t the middle man have to pay less to deliver goods?

    EDITOR’S NOTE: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE PRICE OF THINGS BEGIN TO GO DOWN AS OIL IS? IT WILL BE A DEFLATIONARY SPIRAL.

    Dave, I’ve been reading your articles nonstop for the last month. I’ve gotten out of big banks and into 0 derivative banks, credit unions, and precious metals. I am also getting my food supply and barter items ready. One thing I have not understood is what is going to happen with real estate prices…would they go down (Deflation) or up (Inflation). Sometimes I read we will go through deflation while other times I read the fed will continue printing money and we will go through hyperinflation. I’m trying to decide whether to buy a home in cash now or wait for a steal when the SHTF. I lean towards waiting especially in TX because prices seem so inflated currently. On the other hand, if the heist the money from my accounts, what will I have to buy real estate with?!

    EDITOR’S NOTE: GOLD, GOLD GOLD, WILL HOLD ITS VALUE- INFLATION OR DEFLATION, THE RESULT IS THE SAME, ECONOMIC COLLAPSE.

    This article seems to agree as well with what you are warning. ‘Oil Falls Below 50 As Global Financial Markets Begin To Unravel’

    The IMF probably figures into all this as well as you said before: ‘IMF Now Ready To Slam The Door On The U.S. And The Dollar’

    I don’t think the Suadis care what the banksters think or say. One of their biggest customers became self sufficient. How do you drive out the competition? Raising prices benefits them as well as you, you lower it and squeeze the life out them. When you shut them down you raise the prices back up. What drives an economy? People spending money drives it. Banks don’t drive econmies, they can enhance or destroy them. Lower prices with lower interest rates equals more spending by the consumer. Banks will get paid back on thier loans, etc. . It’s a good thing for us. The BRICs well they are choking on what they have created. Will this lead to WWIII I believe a good chance exists. What happened the last time some one’s oil was messed with? We got Pearl Harbored. I can see the economy collapsing after the start of the war as we couldn’t fund a major conventional event to the extent it would need. I appreciate your articles it helps to keep one on high alert.

    Suggest you read this:-
    THIS IS A 26-page P.D.F.& IT SHOWS THAT THE CO-OPERATION BETWEEN RUSSIA & CHINA IS MUCH
    DEEPER THAN PRVIOUSLY SUSPECTED OR EXPLAINED SO COMPREHENSIVELY,EVEN ON THE NET.YOU WILL NOT
    – REPEAT NOT – READ ANY OF THIS YOUR DAILY “COMICS” AT THE NEWSAGENTS.BUT IF THIS SUCCEEDS,THE WORLD HAS CHANGED IN WAYS THAT CAN’T YET BE PREDICTED.

    “Vladimir Putin said it clearly: “Russia and China will have a significant effect on the
    entire system of international relations. The relationship will be a significant factor in
    world politics and will affect the contemporary architecture of international relations”
    And to state precisely what this relationship means in geopolitical sea change , President

    Putin continued:“Russia and China have never had such trusting relations in the military
    field as they do now. Military exercises have been in joint war games at sea and ground
    both in Russia and China.”

    Is anybody expecting $50 oil for very long? If Russia withholds all oil and gas to Europe—they freeze. If it lasts too long, our high cost shale producers default on their bonds. Then our derivative leveraged banks fail. If the CIA created ISIS can continue destabilizing the Mideast, the Shiite’s in E. Saudi Arabia will bring them turmoil. So—what’s the relief valve, based on Satan inspired hatred of humanity as a foundational principle?

    Muslims unite and attack Jerusalem and all of Israel, from Syria and the Palestinian fronts, as I have contended for over 20 years would happen, as an end times fulfillment of Isa.9:11,12. Watch out Damascus (Isa.17:1). We have been blessed by an extended delay from God (Rev.10:6), but the end time sequence will come soon.

    Walid Shoebat warns the West that Turkey is really actively seeking to create the next caliphate, by bringing co-operation among all Muslim sects. Turkey has publically called for renewed aggression against hated Israel. Russia is arming Assad, to hold unto their Mediterranean port access, and resist the CIA stepchild, ISIS. Our totalitarian leader and our Muslim Brotherhood infested leadership are doing everything they can to weaken Israel and push for a Palestinian state.

    Moreover, our sick leaders have pressured, injured, overthrown and double crossed nearly every country on this planet, between the Bush designed secret Nazi CIA, and the Facist/Socialist White House. So, as Ezekiel 38 prophesied/pre-defined around 2600 years ago, EXPECT Germany and E. Europe (Gomer) and Turkey (Togarmah) to exit NATO, and with Russia (Gog and Magog) to be allied with the Eurasian alliance SOON. Then Satan’s plan to have Europe (and the USA) infested with Muslim terrorists will further help to galvanize the movement against Israel. Moreover, the Ponzi financial scheme of the West has run it’s course, and they are desperate for a cover-up war to blame it on.

    Clearly, 2015 has the makings of terrible troubles erupting. Prepare the best you can—gold/silver and necessities like food—to help buffer what is on the way. And don’t forget to pray to our Creator and Savior, seeking His supernatural protection as one walks in His ways, seeking to be a blessing to others.

    If Russia wants to leverage their position with supplies of natural gas to Europe and Germany, they will obviously want to do it while the weather is cold.

    MILLENNIAL TESTOMONIES FROM THE PSALMS

    Hi Everybody,

    Psalm 90 starting with v. 3

    V. 3 states the two fold subject of the Psalm: (1) the curse, i.e., God’s turning man for his sin into death under an experience of evil and (2) restitution, i.e., God’s declaring a return for mankind from death unto the full restitution of the original estate of sinlessness; while v. 4 indicates that the time of this restoration to the original state of sinlessness will be during a thousand-year period, the Millennium, since a day of God’s time is a thousand years of our time (2 Pet. 3: 8). Then in vs. 5-10, fifteen of the evils–the main ones–of the curse are set forth.
    These fifteen evils having been briefly stated, Moses, in vs. 11 and 12, asks and answers the question, Why was evil permitted? “Who knoweth the power [meaning; for one of the senses of the word power is meaning; as, e.g., in older English one would say, this is the power–sense–of this word] of thine anger [expressed in the curse]? Even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath [Thy curse on the race is to work in it reverence for Thee].” Thus while the first clause of v. 11 asks the question, Why has God permitted evil? its second clause answers it, viz., that the curse–the experience with evil–is in harmony with effecting reverence for God in mankind, i.e., to teach mankind a godly fear, or reverence, which will cause them to hate sin and avoid it.

    P.S.L.J. The Millennium

    The problem is not low oil processthe problem is FIAT currencies whose “value” is based on the “confidence” in Rothschild bankster cult controlled central banking systems. If any new currency is based on actual assets rather than promises from Nazi sociopaths, then would this not be an improvement? The economic trick used by the banksters on countries marked for slaughter are the purposely created twin disasters of inflation and deflation. Round up and quarantine the Nazi banksters and their will be an immediate improved outlook as sane leaders will can be elected or otherwise put in place who are no longer be under their sociopathic thumbs. And this planet’s wardens and guards KNOW this – as do you. So how about getting the right target, Oil price is the result not the cause. Continue to expose the actual cause of the suppression and the WHOs and you will be doing all mankind a service.

    What’s truelly amazing to me is that were not neck deep in some sort of “The Road” situation already,I try too appreciate everyday that is “aka” normal………were all in for a hell of a fight.

    My main question is since the price of oil has been manipulated so much the last few years to greatly inflated prices, isn’t the $40 – $50 range normal? We have been made to think the $3/gal and up prices are normal, when they are not. If they want to increase the price of oil again then we should increase the export price of wheat and corn to balance out this incredible trade deficit.

    This is what you need to watch as a barometer of the economic climate. Baltic Dry Index, it’s an indexed based on the movement of dry goods around the world. As it falls it means no one is ordering raw materials, orders therefore are down. It’s on a slide right now we’ll have to watch and see.

    Maybe the big reset is what this country or even the world needs. After we may be able to shut down the shadow government running this country and try to start new learning from past mistakes. It seems that every way we look where we are heading, TSHTF is inevitable. Maybe a reset would be the most painless, as long as China and Russia don’t try to take advantage of us or the NWO at our point of weakness.

  22. Jeff January 8, 2015 at 12:29 am

    I call BS. The new narrative is “low gas prices are bad”, but I’m not buying it. First off, there is no way there can be deflation when the government has printed off trillions of dollars into our economy over the last few years. Second, even if prices go down, it will be offset by people having more money in their pockets to spend. Women, who are the primary drivers of the economy, won’t pass up buying makeup this week because the price might go down next week. Instead, they will buy makeup, lipstick and mascara this week for the same price that they would have paid only for makeup last week.
