Editor’s Comment: It will interesting to see what happens next. The future depends not only on what kind of president Mr. Trump will be, but also on what kind of foreign affairs the country will carry out. Rex Tillerson is a bold and seemingly atypical choice – he is plucked straight out of Big Oil headquarters.
There have been hopeful signs on the part of Trump and Putin that relations can be significantly improved, and that would set a working peace. However, the situation could quickly change as the administration takes charge; Syria or Iran could be a catalyst for war. Rex Tillerson, who already has a personal business history with Russia and with Putin himself, will be in a very interesting and nuanced position – assuming he is confirmed – as tensions rise and events take place. The fluctuation of oil prices has had a tremendous amount to do with geopolitical turmoil – including in Russia – and Tillerson may have something to do with it all.
The most interesting dynamic is the unraveling of OPEC dominance and the promise of return to domestic exports of oil, gas and energy. With the yuan now pegged to the SDR and global currency basket, the dollar will play a different role in the coming years, and so will oil.
And the Secretary of State Is… A Fracking Pioneer Who Is Now Steering Geopolitical World Order
by Aaron Dykes
Not sure yet, but I think that Donald Trump’s stunning campaign run will not be the last time America will be surprised. Political realignment historically happens in the U.S. every 30 or 40 years; it’s like shifting teeth and growing pains. There is every reason to guard carefully the jewel of liberty during this time. The new face of the country is a political unknown; perhaps even a chameleon.
The cabinet, who pack the real power behind the throne, are already gearing up to be a potent gang of corporate cronies and Wall Street insiders. But the ace card was announced today. Trump has finally announced that he will name Rex Tillerson, CEO and chairman of ExxonMobil, as the next most powerful official and highest ranking foreign dignitary in the U.S. government. Oil is big, but Tillerson’s background is awe inspiring in its totality on the balance of the great game. He created a revolution that is now taking down world order.
Admittedly, the choice is a bit more outside the box than Romney, Petraeus or Giuliani, all of whom have embarrassing scandals trailing them, and easy-to-pick-a-part dysfunctions.
Nonetheless, it is worth stating plainly that President-elect Trump’s reported nominee for Secretary of State is the man who initiated the entire era of fracking, a practice he first pushed for decades ago towards the beginning of his long career with ExxonMobil.
It was his greatest achievement as an early entrepreneur, and it solidified his role in the company for years to come.
As Forbes reported:
It was 1976, and Tillerson had been sent to East Texas for his second assignment at the company. His job was to follow around rigs drilling for natural gas and “complete” the wells. That meant experimenting with a process known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. By pumping water, sand, and chemicals down into a well at high pressure, he could cause cracks in the stone where the gas was trapped and allow more of it to flow.
That winter Tillerson practically lived out of the back of his car, driving to the company’s district office in Tyler at night so he could run punch-card decks through the computer to design his new fracking programs.
Moreover, this multi-billion dollar industry has become an incredibly important part of geopolitics and statecraft… incidentally, the State Dept. is engaged in ongoing economic warfare against a variety of target states around the globe.
All this, while the petrodollar is crumbling, and the global currency standards are shifting East.
Axis of Power: Oil, Rockefellers and Bushes
Tillerson was apparently recommended for the job by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, both close Bush allies.
Tillerson was brought into Trump Tower for an interview with Trump at the recommendation of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Defense Secretary Robert Gates, who count Exxon among their private consulting clients, according to two sources familiar with the conversations. (source)
Rex Tillerson has every tie to the Rockefeller dynasty, whose Standard Oil fortune branched off into ExxonMobil – even if the members of the family publicly distanced themselves from the oil industry, and dumped their shares in the very stuff their fortunes are based upon, but their foundations argue is destroying the planet.
Tillerson’s Power Play
Now, Tillerson’s control over natural gas, oil and energy – which has the power to send the price of oil into free fall – could prove to be the ultimate weapon.
And just as Hillary used her position to see to the removal of several heads of state in the Arab Spring (with the head-prize of Gaddafi), the next Secretary of State – presumably Rex Tillerson – will be waging covert wars around the world using the vast leverage of oil as his most important tool of negotiation.
It is also worth noting that Tillerson has argued in favor of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) free trade agreement – but Donald Trump publicly campaign against it and promised to stop it. It is not yet clear if Tillerson’s opinion has changed since he was quoted in 2013, but as Secretary of State he would have far more involvement in the trade negotiations than President Trump would.
If fighting off the TPP is of major importance to American jobs and the economy at large, then the US is in a difficult spot.
According to the Dept. of State website, the Secretary of State’s duties include a great deal of power over trade and international business.
• Promotes beneficial economic intercourse between the United States and other countries;
• Negotiates, interprets, and terminates treaties and agreements;
• Conducting negotiations and concluding agreements and treaties on issues ranging from trade to nuclear weapons;
• Helping developing nations establish stable economic environments that provide investment and export opportunities;
• Assisting U.S. businesses in the international marketplace;
Incidentally, the TPP has faced such strong opposition in large part due to the concerns about corporate involvement with the negotiations, the terms of which have been arranged and kept in secret. Sec. Tillerson would mean a major corporation representative with a very wide latitude for negotiations – and some of those decisions will undoubtedly affect the oil trade.
“Control oil and you control nations”
Of course, as President and CEO of ExxonMobil, Rex Tillerson has met countless world leaders, and is intermingled in high level affairs across the globe. Given the still unchecked power of oil (and natural gas, etc.) over the affairs of a nation (to reference a quote from Kissinger), the head of any major oil company is essentially as powerful as a head of state in many respects.
David Rockefeller, as an executive of Chase Manhattan and an heir to the family fortune, bragged that he had the phone number in his roledex of every president or prime minister, as well as every defense and state minister in every Latin American country. He made lots of inroads in Europe, Japan, Russia, the Middle East and China as well. He famously visited Castro and negotiated privately with the Communist dictator.
David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger, along with the help of the Trilateral gang, set up the petrodollar standard in 1973, using their ability to manipulate production levels to strong arm nations in to cooperation on their terms. It’s more complicated than that, but…
Now, Tillerson – if confirmed – would make the marriage between energy and government more formalized.
Natural Gas and the Downfall of Venezuela, Saudi and Russia?
His greatest strength lies in the positioning of his assets of state and private enterprise vis-a-vis the geopolitical struggle to keep afloat with declining oil prices. These appear rigged, and have triggered economic vulnerabilities in the key states of Russia, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. The collapse of the latter has been pronounced; 95% of its exports are based on oil, and with falling prices, the socialist regime has no way to pay its social obligations, keep power and infrastructure maintained, or keep its currency out of hyperinflation, or its people starving. Via SHTF Plan:
Through fracking, the U.S. trade deficit in oil is expected to balance out and to transform America into a profitable net exporting region in petroleum and gas within just a few short years:
There is no question that the US has entirely changed the global energy landscape and poses an existential threat to Opec. America has cut its net oil imports by 8.7m bpd since 2006, equal to the combined oil exports of Saudi Arabia and Nigeria.
Putin, well aware of the economic warfare strategies of the West via petro-politics, has diversified and kept Russia’s economy from tanking, though it was designed to put pressure on social programs and benefits, i.e. gifts to the people, in order to undermine his popularity in the motherland. The Saudis have also ridden out the waves, and quietly made new negotiations to navigate the swiftly changing climate.
Meanwhile, the meaning of Ukraine is magnified by the importance of the gas pipeline that Russia uses to supply its clients in Europe who need heat – an important source of revenue; U.S. fracking enterprises have been using the puppet regime as cover for their natural gas explorations, in a bid to fuel Europe themselves via LNG (liquid natural gas) extracted from seized basins in Ukraine exploited by U.S. corporations.
Putin and Tillerson
The fact that ExxonMobil does business with Russia in natural gas is both ironic, and apropos. Now, they will dance, I suppose.
The country most often mentioned in the same breath as Tillerson is Russia. His experience in overseeing a large, successful project there in the 1990s both elevated Tillerson’s stature at Exxon and provided a solid basis to negotiate what looked like his greatest achievement: 2011’s strategic partnership with Rosneft, blessed by President Vladimir Putin himself. As I wrote here, sanctions imposed following Russia’s seizure of territory from Ukraine put that partnership in deep freeze, undermining an important growth prospect for Exxon. (source)
This could actually be quite interesting as it plays out. Putin has purged a lot of the influence from western banking powers (i.e. Rothschild) and western NGO proxy war culture battles, but the ties still run deep.
The establishment is currently beating the drums of war against Russia, while opening a campaign to expose and silence supposed-Putin collaborators who are allegedly parroting pro-Russian propaganda. Perceived ties with Putin were a campaign issue for Trump, and now his Secretary of State has definitive and direct ties to Russia. Trump announced during the campaign that he ‘doesn’t know Putin’ (personally), but Rex Tillerson most certainly does know Putin.
But he is no pawn to draw controversy over a revived Cold War – this guy actually holds the keys to global conflict… and he and Trump could establish peaceful ties and establish mutual business. On the other hand, the ability to control the supply & demand of the energy economy becomes a power play. If the Administration wishes to poke Putin, they can do it directly through sanctions, or indirectly through sabotage.
The petty debates over resolutions and sound bytes about the Russian threat will be muted by the simple dynamic of whether or not Putin is happy, and whether or not Tillerson is peaceful or warlike.
At some point, there is meant to be more world war, and greater global control… but perhaps for a time there will be peace.
Clearly, this connects back to the life and times of Rex Tillerson, who putting fracking on the map, and created a post-peak oil paradigm in which fossil fuel giants can continue to dominate the earth for the foreseeable future.
Draining the Swamp? Enter, the Council on Foreign Relations and the North American Union scheme
As if that wasn’t enough, the Council on Foreign Relations quietly updated its plans for the North American Union during the off season circa 2014. During this time, former Bush Admin CIA director Gen. Petraeus and former Bush Admin World Bank chief Robert Zoellick headed a panel to essentially shifts energy production back to North America.
Their agenda points are clearly outlined in our Truthstream video from a couple of years ago:
Welcome to Americanadexico: New CFR Blueprint for a North American Union Super Grid
When Rex Tillerson spoke at the Council on Foreign Relations in 2007, he outlined his vision for a “global market for energy”:
Should the United States seek so-called energy independence in an elusive effort to insulate this country from the impact of world events on the economy, or should Americans pursue the path of international engagement, seeking ways to better compete within the global market for energy? Like the Council’s founders, I believe we must choose the course of greater international engagement. … The central reality is this: The global free market for energy provides the most effective means of achieving U.S. energy security by promoting resource development, enabling diversification, multiplying our supply channels, encouraging efficiency, and spurring innovation.
If there is job growth, it is fracking and its derivatives. “Newly discovered” fields in Midland, Texas or the Dakotas and wherever else is the battlefield for a new front of CFR globalism. Energy is now a product of economic control and digital surveillance at every level. It has become an important tentacle in society; the report indicates the general plans to routes the electrical grid throughout North America, and eventually to transfer natural gas to Central America and beyond.
The larger motivations for North American-ism in the thinking of government can be explored at a later time.
What is important to recognize, is that the powers-that-be have a strategy here. As chaotic as the 2016 appeared, there was a quiet churning in the background; the steady hum of 1,000 points of light, come to implement the accepted agenda, and spout the talking points.
Here’s a related report:
It isn’t clear whether or not Trump is “in on it”, but it is clear that he has surrounded himself with players in the scheme. At this time, it appears that Rudy Giuliani will not play a direct role in Trump’s administration; this may also be true of Gen. Petraeus, whose scandals are just more political baggage – but regardless of whether or not they take cabinet positions, they are directly involved in the larger plan for geopolitical and full spectrum dominance.
Restoring energy exports at home will rally the patriotic base and rouse that “Made in America” spirit – and perhaps there are legitimate advantages – but ultimately the political nature of this industry will be played for benefit by a globalist organization.
Nevertheless, we are entering a new era in politics altogether. Let’s pick apart the pieces of that new paradigm carefully, so we can avoid repeating the painful mistakes of the past.

Something is up. This could still happen. Not a good thing.
An excellent informative article.
This pick can turn out to be a blessing or a curse.
A man who has worked with Putin +1
Self made entreprenur type +1

Referred by Condoleza Rice +0
Pro TPP -9
Connections to Rockefeller -11
__total +3 -911
In addition he got endorsement by the entire Bush admin….So Overall F%^7% this pig.
Stolz, I smell a rat on each of Trump’s cabinet picks and ESPECIALLY this one. Time will tell.
Well Finally it is confirmed that WARS are based on, and designed around Protecting the Oil Companies and their business profits. So just put them in charge. (Sh!T)
Trump seems pretty ignorant on the use of Solar. During the campaign he said solar is too expensive. Yeah maybe 20 years, ago but not today. Just .65 cents a watt now up front costs, then the rest is free and renewable for decades.
When people like Trump are used to living in a cement city (NY City) with barely seeing the sun daily they are ignorant of what the Free Sun Provides. We the people need to educate Trump quickly up to speed on Solar. And keep incentives of being independent off the grid dependency. As long as we are dependent on foreign oil, we will be at war. And that’s the Fact Jack!!
Maybe I need to get a meeting appointment set up at Trump Tower. If Conya West can get an Appointment at Trump Tower, then so should I. lol
Keep in mind, this Exxon Guy is just Trumps Nominee, and still needs to be confirmed by 51%. There is disagreement on both sides of the isles on this appointment.
Solar power is not “free for decades”.
You’ve never replaced batteries, inverter, charge controller, ever?
The average home powered by solar only will take from 10-20 years to recover initial cost. And that is barring replacing anything.
There isn’t a battery made that will power a whole town, much less a city.
See the Second Law of Thermodynamics.
The other problem is night..a report in Spain a while back noted people were shining lights on their panels at night. That’s smart.
Solar is great for remote places, backup power and small stand alone applications.
It will never replace current power generation.
At even 20% energy efficiency, (mine are 13-14%) solar panels are losing 80% of their energy. Plus they lose efficiency over time.
As a piece of information a Natural Gas Combined Cycle GTG/HRSG power plant has broke the 50% efficiency barrier. For the layman that means 50% of the BTUs in the fuel is converted to electricity.
The problem with solar on an infrastructure scale is storage it works great for those of us living simple and not in the cities but urban areas consume to much. I think the hydro “batteries ” are the best option for storage but it will take a lot of political force to implement that.
For anyone who doesn’t know the hydro I am talking is where the surplus solar energy is used to pump millions of gallons of water to an elevated location where the water will Fall through a hydro plant producing power. I am sure it has a better name then hydro battery but it works for this discussion
Fracking – which RUINS water tables and pollutes ENDLESS underground aquifers. -1,000,000,000,000.
Flush this CFR TURD.
Trump DID have Epstein in the rolodex..hmm
we all got the globalist head fake with trump i fear.
I know this is not the main point of this fine write-up, but I just wanted to say a couple things about US oil.
America becoming energy independent is not happening. They still import a net of over 6 million bbls a day.
The CFR piece is four years old and was written before the price of oil crashed and caused the shut down of a good bit of the tight oil patch in Williston. Tight oil cannot compete with ME oil because the costs of their oil is way cheaper than the cost of US tight oil.
Russia is in the driver’s seat with hydrocarbons right now. If Donald is a smart man he will have Rex negotiate oil patch deals to use US oilco’s fracking technology to benefit both countries. However, it’s scary that he was recommended by “septic tank” Rice…so who knows what will happen.
Here are the facts. Global Oil Companies make tens of Billions each in Profit every year. And US oil Co’s are also subsidized by US Tax Payers? WTF? read this:
Report Shows The Oil Industry Benefits From $5.3 Trillion in Subsidies Annually
By Rmuse on Tue, Jun 9th, 2015
In a new and disturbing report from researchers at the International Monetary Fund, the world’s governments are providing subsidies to the highly profitable oil industry to the tune of an astonishing $5.3 trillion in benefits per year. Another way of looking at just how much the world pays the oil industry that bears responsibility for decimating the Earth’s environment; imagine they receive $10 million per minute. That is $10 million every minute, every day, of every month, of every year. Those mind-boggling entitlements have grown over the past couple of decades and are increasing every year.

And here in the US:
Budget hawks: Does US need to give gas and oil companies $41 billion a year?

He estimates that the US spent between $49 billion and $100 billion on energy subsidies in 2007 – under GW Bush and Dick Cheney. It was a windfall pig trough.
There is part of the National Debt Fraud!!
And take a look at oil company’s debt.
Remove the space between t’s.
“Exxon, Shell, BP and Chevron have combined debts of $184 billion amid two-year slump.”
Somebody’s made off with some money…
But, if you like any of your existence now, thank petroleum. Your smart phone (don’t have one), computer, fridge, car, truck, food, all got to you by it.
Try to name one thing that hasn’t been touched by oil, whether made or transported by.
You want to do something for the environment, try curtailing air travel. Ever see those live graphs of all flights?
Zeus, got crickets? 🙂
I didn’t mention how solar panels and dead batteries (not all of them will be recycled) by the thousands or millions will be in landfills in 10-20 years, polluting the sh*t out of the groundwater. And every panel has silver in it. Gone.
I just read how the Prius is a net loss to carbon/environment because of the energy used to mine rare earth minerals used in it’s production. And it’s batteries are a whole ‘nother story.
I’m no fan of petroleum, but it powers our planet.
How many people whom Trump has selected are members of the Council on Foreign Relations? As the CFR has controlled the federal government since the FDR administration, that is a good indicator on whether Trump will clean the swamp.
Things are not going to improve in this country period, no matter who is in the White House, this is common sense. What I watch now is EMP attacks, rogue faction groups, Chinese soldiers, and listen to reality and do away with fantasy.
The entire world is more or less organized crime syndicates carving up and going to war over territory. Trump being the negotiator is going to have Tillerson cutting in Putin on, “A piece of the action”.
I agree. Governments are gangs with tanks. Nothing more. The smaller the government, the safer you are.
YouTube’s X 22 Spotlight has a recent interview with Steve St. Angelo. His website is
srsroccoreport dot com Spoiler: St. Angelo is a Peak Oiler. Still, it’s interesting. Interview is dated Dec. 10.
Secretary of State has always been controlled by “the powers that shouldn’t be”.
It is the conduit through which the Globalists speak to and control presidents.
Watch carefully who is Secretary of State, because they are the enemy of a free people.
It’s no coincidence that two prior Secretary of States agree that Trumps appointee is the cats meow.
The Globalists want Russia’s natural resources. They are willing to do anything to get it. Russia is the prize. The Ukraine crisis and Syria are about pipelines. Not freedom or terrorism. If the Globalists can eliminate Russian energy sales to Europe, they can collapse the Russian economy and the Russian government. The Globalists will install puppets and then the real looting begins. Remember, after the US State Dept. overthrew the Ukrainian government, Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was immediately put on the board of directors of the largest Ukrainian energy company. Buresma Holdings. Several of John Kerry’s buddies also work for Ukrainian energy interests. There’s a lot more, but space is limited.
Him, thanks for the reminder. The tentacles go deep, huh?
Even the war against the Serbs was BS. We stole Kosovo from the Serbs and gave it to Albanian Muslim Communists. Back in history, it was the Serbs that stopped one of the Muslim invasions of Europe. Any way, it wasn’t a noble cause as we were told. After the war our Secretary of State, Madelline Albright, and retired General Wesley Clark, The US general of the conflict, both enriched themselves in Kosovo. They both have major energy investments in Kosovo. The Kosovo government rewarding the criminals? By the way, the government of Kosovo is led by Hacim Thaci, the head of the KLA, a terrorist group. The US took him off the terror list, so a handful of our politicians could loot Kosovo. Time to clean out the Dept. of State.
