JP Morgan and the Saudi Oil Colony

[Editors Note:  Dear Folks, This is a must read for a one stop primer on the history of the big oil boys. If you are busy when you come here, just save the link to read when you do have the time, as there is a lot to absorb here. For those of us finding it harder and harder to read books anymore, it is great to have someone like the Hendersons giving us these big spoonfuls at a time...Jim W. Dean]

Excerpted from Chapter 3: The House of Saud & JP Morgan: Big Oil & Their Bankers in the Persian Gulf…

ARAMCO

With 261 billion barrels of crude oil lying beneath its soil, Saudi Arabia remains the lynchpin in the international oil grab presided over by the Four Horsemen. 

As Joseph Story, Middle East analyst and former ARAMCO executive once said, “Only one factor is involved in where the price of oil is going to go, and that is Saudi Arabia”.

In 1933 Standard Oil Company of California (Socal) negotiated the first oil concession in Saudi Arabia with Saudi Finance Minister Abdullah Sulaiman.  The Saudis were to get a 30,000 British pound loan and 5,000 pounds for the first year’s rent, all payable in gold.  But US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) had just embargoed gold exports in response to the Great Depression and Socal’s request for an exemption was turned down by FDR’s Secretary of State Dean Acheson.

Socal circumvented the embargo by procuring the gold from the London branch of Morgan Guaranty Trust.  When the Saudis asked Socal officials what they should do with their newfound wealth, Socal recommended depositing it at Morgan Guaranty Trust.  The Saudis complied.

In 1938 Socal, which later changed its name to Chevron, struck oil in both Saudi Arabia and Qatar and founded the Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO).  Chevron quickly brought in Standard Oil of New Jersey (later Exxon), Standard Oil of New York (later Mobil) and Texaco as partners.  This American half of the Four Horsemen would grow ARAMCO into the largest oil company in the world, nearly three times the size of Royal Dutch/Shell.

While British Petroleum (BP) and Royal Dutch/Shell, the two European Horsemen, owned the biggest share of the Iraqi Petroleum Company and dominated the Iranian Consortium, the US Horsemen now had their talons into the biggest prize yet, ARAMCO.

Other agreements were struck in the region as well.  Chevron and Texaco formed a marketing arm known as Caltex, while jointly owning Bahrain Petroleum Company.  BP joined with the Mellon family-controlled Gulf Oil to develop oilfields in Kuwait.  By 1949, BP and Royal Dutch/Shell controlled 52% of Middle East oil reserves, while five US oil giants – Exxon, Mobil, Chevron, Texaco and Gulf-controlled 42%. [1]

ARAMCO soon boasted both the largest oilfield in the world at Ghawar and the biggest offshore field in the world at Safaniya.  It also laid claim to expansive oilfields at Berri and Abqaiq.  All told ARAMCO now controls over one-quarter of the world’s crude oil reserves.

In the wake of the 1973 Arab oil embargo, ARAMCO embarked on the most expensive single industrial project in the history of mankind, a massive petrochemical and refining complex at Jubail.  The company also runs the world’s largest deep water port at Ras Tanura on Saudi Arabia’s Persian Gulf shoreline. [2]

While British Petroleum (BP) and Royal Dutch/Shell, the two European Horsemen, owned the biggest share of the Iraqi Petroleum Company and dominated the Iranian Consortium, the US Horsemen now had their talons into the biggest prize yet, ARAMCO.

The Saudi government claims to have nationalized its domestic oil sector.  The glossy ARAMCO World, which tends to show up in public libraries and dentist offices throughout the US, is the propaganda arm of the company.  It boasts that the Saudi government took a 25% stake in ARAMCO by 1973, increased its stake to 60% in 1974 and by 1980 owned 100% of ARAMCO, now known as Saudi ARAMCO.  The real story is a bit more complex.

Until at least 1988, the four US oil giants operated ARAMCO, even if the Saudi government did, in fact, own it.  Exxon’s 1990 10K filing to the US SEC lists Exxon Overseas Corporation as a wholly-owned subsidiary, then states that Exxon Overseas owns a 28.33% stake in Arabian American Oil Company.  Until he suffered a massive stroke, King Fahd  had chaired the Supreme Council of Saudi ARAMCO, but board members include the former chairmen of Exxon and Chevron as well as a prominent US banker. [3]

No matter who actually owns ARAMCO, the Four Horsemen still call the shots through management contracts, service agreements and joint venture activity.  These downstream niches are where the real profit margins are to be found and the Four Horsemen have generally been moving in this direction since the early 1980’s in their worldwide operations.

Saudi ARAMCO joint ventures include a huge refinery at Yanbu known as Mobil Yanbu Refining Company and an equally massive refinery at Jeddah which is 50%-owned by Royal Dutch/Shell.

Mobil owns a majority interest in Luberef, a Saudi base oil refiner and in Petrolube, a blender which exports to over 40 different countries.  Mobil and Royal Dutch/Shell are 50% owners of two ethylene crackers, one at Yanbu and one at Jubail Industrial City.

Shell owns 50% of Saudi Petrochemical Company and Saudi Arabian Markets & Shell Lubricants, 49% of both Al Jomaih & Shell Lubricating Oil and Modern Automotive Services Company, and 25% of Peninsular Aviation Services Marketing.  Motiva is a Shell/Saudi joint venture in the US, with refineries at Norco and Convent, Louisiana. [4]

Exxon owns and operates both the Al Jubail Petrochemical Company – by far the largest facility in Jubail Industrial City – and Exxon Chemical Arabia, Inc.  Its Essochem Belgian subsidiary has a joint venture with the wealthy Saudi Algosaibi family known as Oil Field Chemical Company.

Texaco has two joint ventures with Saudi ARAMCO in the United States: Texas Refining & Marketing and Star Enterprises. [5]  Sappco-Texaco Insulation Products is a venture between Texaco and Saudi Olayan Group, which is controlled by Sulaiman Olayan.  As of 1990, Texaco got 92% of its US-bound crude oil from Saudi Arabia.

According to Platt’s Oilgram News, Saudi ARAMCO also supplies Big Oil with discount crude, giving them $5/barrel off the posted spot price of whichever grade of crude the Horsemen are buying.  ARAMCO official James McPherson resigned in disgust because the company was holding back from direct competition with the US Horsemen.  McPherson then revealed a $17 million ARAMCO tax fraud to Saudi authorities.

Abdullah Tariki, Saudi Director of Petroleum and Minerals, went public with the charges and announced new transit fees that would be charged the Horsemen to compensate for the rip-off.  Within days of the proclamation Tariki was driven from office by King Fahd himself. [6]

ARAMCO’s lawyer was  John McCloy, who chaired both Chase Manhattan and the World Bank.  McCloy, who helped David Rockefeller wisk the Shah out of Tehran, was one of six “Wise Men” who advised President Johnson and was an influential member of the Warren Commission, which “investigated” the Kennedy assassination.

As of 1990 ARAMCO produced over 8 million barrels of crude oil a day, ensuring the Saudi role as “swing producer”.  During the 1991 Gulf War ARAMCO underwent another expansion and now cranks out an unprecedented 10 million barrels a day.  With the Shah deposed, the Saudi half of the Twin Pillars took on much greater significance.

Bechtel

ARAMCO’s primary construction contractor is Bechtel, a shadowy San Francisco-based private company that is the largest engineering firm in the world.  Laton McCartney’s book Friends in High Places chronicles Bechtel’s close ties to the US State Department and the CIA, which uses the company as an “asset” due to Bechtel’s penchant for mega-projects in remote areas of the world.

Wherever the Four Horsemen roam, Bechtel eyes and ears are close behind.  In oil-rich Venezuela it constructed the Mena Grande pipeline.  In Saudi Arabia it built ARAMCO’s “industrial city” at Jubail, the world’s largest industrial project ever.

Bechtel built Japan’s Tokyo Narita Airport and the convention center for the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics.  It built Egypt’s Aswan Dam, the Euro-Disney Theme Park and San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. Most every dam in the US was built by Bechtel, including the massive Hoover Dam.

It built the nation’s first nuclear power plant for ARCO in Idaho in 1951 and builds most every nuclear and electrical power plant of any size in the world.  It also builds military installations and seaports.  Pick your modern engineering marvel and there is a good chance it was built by Bechtel.  The firm is owned by the Bechtel family and currently run by Stephen Bechtel who in 1973 met personally with King Fahd to plan the Jubail Project.

Bechtel lead the charge to privatize Third World water systems and a major backer of the Free Trade Agreement of the Americas.  In 1999 Bechtel took over the provincial water system of Cochabamba, Bolivia.  According to Bolivian activist Oscar Oliviera of the Coalition for the Defense of Water and Life, the World Bank promoted the water grab on behalf of Bechtel’s Aqua Sentuary subsidiary.

Giving new meaning to the word “privatization”, rural Bolivian farmers saw their private water wells seized by the state and were forced to hook up to the Bechtel grid.  Fees shot up 300% for city dwellers who were suddenly spending 25% of their monthly income on water.

Bolivian peasants responded with four months of blockades and protests from January to April 2000.  A few were killed, hundreds injured and thousands jailed by a Bechtel-beholden Bolivian government. Finally, the government was forced to cancel the Bechtel contract.  In February 2002 at a secret World Bank court, Bechtel sued the provincial government for $25 million, claiming a loss of profits for the next 40 years.

Giving new meaning to the word “privatization”, rural Bolivian farmers saw their private water wells seized by the state and were forced to hook up to the Bechtel grid. Fees shot up 300% for city dwellers who were suddenly spending 25% of their monthly income on water.

Bechtel has, along with ARAMCO, enjoyed quasi-governmental status for five decades in the Middle East.  Past Bechtel directors include Kennedy CIA Deputy Director John McMahone and Reagan cabinet officials Secretary of State George Schulz, Secretary of Defense Casper Weinberger and Arms Control Adviser Kenneth Timmerman.

George Schultz, who was Bechtel chairman before his Reagan appointment, returned to the Bechtel board in the early 1990’s and also joined the board at Chevron.  CIA Directors Bill Casey and Richard Helms both worked for Bechtel as did Philip Habib, the Carter Middle East envoy who produced the Camp David treaty between Egypt and Israel.

As of 1978 Stephen Bechtel and co-founder John McMahone owned 40% of Bechtel stock, while the other 60% was held by 60 Bechtel executives.  Bechtel owns 15% of Peabody Coal and a big chunk of the Dillon Read investment bank, where Bush Sr. Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady worked.  Bechtel set up the Fremont Group as a holding company for Bechtel Energy Resources, Bechtel Investments Realty, Crown Pacific, Offshore Bechtel Exploration and Coldwell Banker.

Coldwell is one of the nation’s largest real estate firms and was purchased from the Carlyle Group, where James Baker III, George Bush Sr. and Frank Carlucci now work.  As of 1994 the board of Fremont Group included Stephen Bechtel, Eisenhower Defense Secretary Cordell Hull, George Schultz and Citibank chairman Walter Wriston.

In Saudi Arabian business ventures, foreign companies are required to work through agents who are Saudi nationals.  Bechtel recruited an ARAMCO dispatcher named Sulaiman Olayan to be its partner in forming the Saudi Arabian Bechtel Company.  Olayan, a penniless working class Shi’ite, would own 50% of the new company and became an instant billionaire.

Before the arrival of the Four Horsemen, Saudi Arabia had been a fairly egalitarian society.  So had Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.  Most modern day billionaire oil sheiks had been truck drivers, mechanics and pearl divers.

The Council on Foreign Relations

Bechtel insider George Pratt Schultz is also the current director at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR),a powerful US foreign policy think tank whose geopolitical imperatives are, more often than not, adopted by the US State Department.

The CFR was created in 1922 and is headquartered in Harold Pratt House in New York City.  The building was donated by Pratt’s widow, whose husband made his fortune as a partner in John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company.

Schulz, a relative of Mrs. Harold Pratt, replaced CFR member Alexander Haig to become Reagan’s Secretary of State.  The CFR is the US affiliate of the Royal Institute for International Affairs (RIIA) in London.

Both foreign policy think tanks are loaded with powerful leaders of industry, academia and government.  They hold an enormous amount of sway over US and British foreign policies, providing the glue for the so-called “special relationship” between the US and Britain.

CFR publishes Foreign Affairs, a bi-monthly journal on the global political landscape, which is considered by many in the State Department as a kind of “how-to” guide in conducting foreign policy.

Founding members of CFR included brothers John Foster and Allen Dulles, columnist Walter Lippman, former Secretary of State Elihu Root and Colonel Edward Mandell House, who as adviser to President Woodrow Wilson pushed through the Federal Reserve Act, creating a private US central bank owned by a few wealthy banking families.

In 1912, one year before the Federal Reserve was created, House wrote Philip Dru: Administrator.  The book describes a conspiracy within the United States bent on establishing a central bank, a graduated income tax and control of both political parties.

Past funding for CFR has come from international financiers David Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, Bernard Baruch, Jacob Schiff, Otto Kahn and Paul Warburg.  International banks Kuhn Loeb, Lazard Freres, Lehman Brothers (now part of Barclays) and Goldman Sachs – whose directorates interlock – heavily influence CFR proceedings. [7]

CFR members are sworn to secrecy regarding goals and operations.  But Admiral Chester Ward,  a longtime CFR member, let slip that the goal of the group is, “to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the United States…Primarily, they want a world banking monopoly from whatever power ends up in the control of global government.”

CFR members have dominated every Administration since FDR and most Presidential candidates come from its ranks.  Adlai Stevenson, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, George McGovern, Walter Mondale, Jimmy Carter, George Bush Sr. and Al Gore are all CFR alumni.  David Rockefeller served as CFR Chairman for some time, giving way to fellow Chase Manhattan chairman/ARAMCO attorney John McCloy.

Founding members of [The Council on Foreign Relations] CFR included brothers John Foster and Allen Dulles, columnist Walter Lippman, former Secretary of State Elihu Root and Colonel Edward Mandell House, who as adviser to President Woodrow Wilson pushed through the Federal Reserve Act, creating a private US central bank owned by a few wealthy banking families.

Every CIA Director since Allen Dulles has been a CFR member, including Richard Helms, William Colby, George Bush Sr., Bill Casey, William Webster, James Woolsey and John Deutsch.  CFR’s Foreign Affairs consistently advocates US military intervention and is the most widely read periodical at the US State Department.

According to both former Deputy Director of the CIA Victor Marchetti and former State Department analyst John Marks, the CFR is the principal constituency of the CIA, since the elite who run the CFR are the ones who own the overseas assets which the CIA and the US military work to guard. [8]

It is through the CFR that the international bankers and the global intelligence community mingle.  The bankers and the spooks share a common goal of keeping the world safe for global monopoly capitalism. Often intelligence operatives are recruited from the banking houses where their loyalties to the banking elite have been thoroughly tested.  OSS founding father William “Wild Bill” Donovan was an agent for JP Morgan.

The revolving door between banking and intelligence swings the other way as well.  The very best CIA, Mossad and MI6 agents are recruited to become better paid private spooks for multinational corporate and banking empires as documented in Jim Hougan’s Spooks: The Haunting of America – Private Use of Secret Agents.

As author Donald Gibson wrote, “By the early 1960’s the CFR, Morgan and Rockefeller interests, and the intelligence community were so extensively inbred as to be virtually one entity.”[9]

The CFR is also the primary incubator for Presidential cabinet positions.  The Nixon Administration had 115 CFR members, while the Clinton Administration included over 100 CFR alumni.  They included CFR President Peter Tarnoff, National Security Adviser Anthony Lake, Vice-President Al Gore, Secretary of State Warren Christopher, Secretary of Defense Les Aspin and his successor William Cohen, Secretary of Treasury Lloyd Bentsen, CIA Director James Woolsey, Colin Powell, Tim Wirth, Winston Lord, Laura Tyson, George Stephenopoulos and Samuel Lewis.

In the fall of 1998 as impeachment loomed over Clinton, the President rushed to New York to try and muster support from his CFR “handlers”.  As publisher John F. McManus stated, “Bill Clinton knows well that he serves as President because the members of the ‘secret society’ to which he belongs chose him and expect him to carry out its plans.”

JP Morgan Chase

ARAMCO’s banker has always been Morgan Guaranty Trust. The Saudi Arabian government keeps the bulk of its money at Morgan as well.

Morgan made loans to the Saudis based on oil revenues which the Saudis were receiving from ARAMCO, revenues which originated from Morgan ARAMCO accounts and were recycled back into Morgan Saudi accounts.

Just as the Shah of Iran enjoyed an exclusive relationship with David Rockefeller’s Chase Manhattan, so was the House of Saud intertwined with the Morgan Guaranty Trust.

Morgan Guaranty came into being when the old JP Morgan Bank split into three parts after the passage of the Glass-Steagal Act of 1933, which aimed to curb the power of Wall Street banks who many saw responsible for the Crash of 1929.

Morgan Stanley filled the role of investment bank, Morgan Guaranty Trust became the commercial bank and JP Morgan & Company became an exclusive private bank for the world’s super-rich, including the Bechtel family.

In 2000 Chase Manhattan the JP Morgan, unhindered after the late-1990’s repeal of Glass-Steagal, merged to form JP Morgan Chase.  The mega-banks of Rockefeller and Morgan, which for decades had recycled petrodollars for Twin Pillars Iran and Saudi Arabia, were now one.

Bechtel insider Sulaiman Olayan was a director of Morgan Guaranty Trust’s International Council.  His Olayan Group is the largest private investment firm in the Middle East and controls big chunks of Saudi Bechtel, JP Morgan Chase, Occidental Petroleum and CS First Boston.  J.P. Morgan Chase, ARAMCO and Bechtel use Olayan as their joint venture liaisonto the House of Saud. [10]

In 1950, the Saudi monarchs began collecting royalties on ARAMCO profits.  ARAMCO owners Exxon, Mobil, Chevron and Texaco lobbied the US government for tax credits on royalties paid to the Saudis, so the US taxpayer footed the bill.  This was coupled with the ridiculously low taxes these companies were paying into US government coffers.  In 1974 Mobil and Texaco were taxed at a rate of 1.6%.  Chevron coughed up 4.3%, while Exxon gave a generous 5.9% of its profits to US Treasury. [11]

Even these figures are artificially high, since often multinational corporations declare profits through subsidiaries in places like Panama or Hong Kong where there are no corporate taxes, while declaring only losses in the US.  Often these corporations pay no US taxes. Some even get tax rebates.

As author Donald Gibson wrote, “By the early 1960’s the CFR, Morgan and Rockefeller interests, and the intelligence community were so extensively inbred as to be virtually one entity.”[9]

The year the Saudis began receiving royalties, the current US/Saudi oil for arms quid pro quowas launched. Assistant Secretary of State George McGhee negotiated the US/Saudi Security Agreement.  Oil had become the driving force in the post-WWII boom occurring in the US.  ARAMCO became the vital economic link bridging Saudi Arabian crude with increased US gross domestic product.

As evidence mounted that the Saudis were sitting atop the bulk of the world’s oil deposits, ARAMCO took on national security status at the State Department.  Saudi Arabia has 261 billion barrels in oil reserves.  No other nation has much over 100 billion barrels in reserves, though Iraq, Iran, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates all hover near that figure.  Russian and Central Asian estimates are still subject to debate.

Export-Import Bank loans, guaranteed by US taxpayers, began gushing into Saudi Arabia in a frantic rush to finance infrastructure to handle this newfound oil.  Bechtel led a pack of hungry US engineering firms like Fluor Daniel, M.W. Kellogg and Foster Wheeler, who, paid by the Saudis with these Ex-Im Bank loans, built oil refineries, pipelines, deep-water ports and drilling platforms for the ARAMCO consortium.  The financial infrastructure to handle recycled oil revenues also had to be built.

In 1952, on the heels of the US/Saudi Security Agreement, the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA) was created as the Kingdom’s Central Bank.  By 1958 SAMA was run by Pakistani native Anwar Ali, later adviser to King Faisal.  Anwar had been Chief of the International Monetary Fund’s Middle East Department.  He recruited three Western bankers as SAMA advisers.  Known as the Three Wise Men or White Fathers, these Western bankers called the shots at SAMA, with Ali serving as figurehead.

The most powerful of the three was John Meyer, Jr., chairman of Morgan Guaranty’s International Division and later chairman of the entire Morgan mother ship.  The White Fathers funneled SAMA petrodollar royalties into Morgan Guaranty accounts. In turn Morgan served as well-paid investment counselor to SAMA.  Anwar Ali’s son even landed a job at Morgan Guaranty. [12]

  1. Nice work Mr. Henderson:

    RE: “Before the arrival of the Four Horsemen, Saudi Arabia had been a fairly egalitarian society. So had Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. Most modern day billionaire oil sheiks had been truck drivers, mechanics and pearl divers.”

    Your are absolutely right sir:

    An Indian cab-diver in Dubai told me (about 1993) that just before 1978 (Iran’s Regime change) all the United Arab Emirates (including Dubai) were using Indian Rupees as their currency & so they didn’t even have their own currency & almost no buildings taller than two stories & almost no paved roads & almost no automobiles but mostly camels & tents everywhere!!!
    But nowadays Dubai is one of a handful of places one could see a $2 million Bugatti parked on the road!!!

  2. Well that’s all I know: http://rt.com/business/news/rothschild-rockefeller-strategic-partnership-590/
    It’s more like a joint venture than a merger I suppose.
    “The partnerships unite 96-year-old David Rockefeller, and Jacob Rothschild, 76 – whose personal ties span five decades and as stated by Rockefeller “the connection between the two families remains very strong.”
    Lord Rothschild, chairman of RIT, added, “The creation of this partnership with the Rockefeller family is truly historic. We look forward to the development of our joint investment activities across the global capital markets.””

  3. Very interesting article indeed… Thank you! I notice that The Bechtel name is covering Indonesia and the colors red and white are the colors of the indonesian flag…

  4. i often wonder when American’s will act up, not just as a threat for a revolution, but actually do something to stop the insanity. If not, 9/11 will just become yearly or monthly incident.

  5. Another stunning insight into the incestuous cesspit Dean…..amazing research, keep ‘em coming.

  6. So what about the merger of Rothschilds and Rockefellers last year ?
    I presume it has had grave implications for the world but what exactly have they been?
    Any thoughts?

  7. Did you notice (not that they are all bad) but an overwhelming number of “Jews” in the mix, look at who’s leading the charge? Are the good ones in a position to straighten this out for us, make it right?

    After all it has meant dozens of $Trillions in UN-necessary costs to us and UN-told suffering and death to our citizens who are even NOW serving under the pressure of a “financial Coup d’ ‘Etat ” that occurred with never ending ramifications, in 1913 with the Federal Reserve and the Income Tax that was rammed through illegally. We are fighting for Israel (even now), who screwed us royally through their brethren before Israel existed. They got us to give them a country, then fund it, then fight it’s wars, all the while they’re stealing us blind.. Plus if you look into their great victories over the Arabs, in most of those cases it was U.S. Soldiers, equipment, painted to look Israeli (planes, etc.) along with funding, support, etc. that decided the outcome of those wars, in their favor, of course they took ful credit for doing it on their own.

    What a ONE sided partnership, alliance, and a history never told, thanks to their power over OUR MONEY? And the influence peddling of the CFR. Is this an organization we need, in view of their history?

  8. I had to pause at this point, but continued after I settled down. It was this language in particular *below): These conspirators, against the sovereign rights of the American citizens, are treasonous, anti-American, pro-enslavement, elitists, at a minimum.

    How the still exist as the CFR, is a huge blessings for them (they have gone way beyond a grace period). As people find out their role in usurpation of our liberty(s), finances, double dealing against our interests and for their own, conniving and deception, vote rigging, and it becomes known, they need to be arrested prosecuted, extradited, then sentenced (at least).

    “In 1912, one year before the Federal Reserve was created, House wrote Philip Dru: Administrator. The book describes a conspiracy within the United States bent on establishing a central bank, a graduated income tax and control of both political parties.

  9. Dean, another good piece. I must say I recently read your ‘how to stop the illuminati’ or some title to that effect and a couple things in it made me bust out laughing, Loud. People should check your site and see that one, don’t expect it to be funny or you’ll be expecting too much it was just a few lines. But DH again thanks for that unexpected (wal mt and k mt) lol, much appreciated and the article on the whole was on the mark as well. Your spirit is a high one. Thanks for your efforts.

  10. Folks: remember “THE CREATURE FROM ZEKYL ISLAND” ???

    Here it is in person. Check out specially the charts:

  11. Thanks to both OrdinarySerf and LC.

    Good that I know the websites mentioned.

    The BECHTEL company logo seems to be the perfect logo because many other logos (most?) have different versions (logo evolution). BECHTEL seems to be the same for over hundred years.

    • Not the perfect logo Stephen…..I think you mean the perfect example of a Satanic logo ( ?! )

  12. Bechtel logo apparently covering the Pacific, Australia & North America…. or ??

    ++ I just found the following BOOK which Mr. Henderson had referenced in his previous related pages. J.P. Morgan & cronies are extensively mentioned in the book:

    A priceless book written (around 1991) by Dr. John Coleman (former MI6) describes many facades of Pakistan in the global scene. The book began in Pakistan with the Assassination of former President Zia Al Hag.
    I just found a truncated version of that book free online + a 1993 introduction to that book (apparently by Dr. Coleman).
    The advantage of this pdf-file to the real book is that it is searchable with keywords. The book probably seemed surreal to readers 20 years ago but today we have seen that almost everything it had revealed then have become either fully or partially known since then (such as HARRP, mind-control systems, MK-Ultra, etc.)

    • ++ read this amazement:

      @ page 109: “Destruction of national identity proceeds apace. It is no longer a good thing to be patriotic unless it is in the cause of some One World Government project such as the war of genocide being waged against the nation of Iraq, or the impending destruction of Libya.” (page 109)

      Also by searching the word “MOSSAD” you read amazing things which relate very much with many articles written in VT. Since 1991 (when the book was published) MOSSAD has committed countless murders & other crimes all over the world including the Norway massacre & Sandy Hook school massacre (or abductions) according to VT’s intelligence analyst Mr. Harris.

  13. Can anyone explain what part of the world is on the BECHTEL company logo?

    • Hi Stephen, it’s been deliberately designed by some smart a*se ad agency to put people in a trance. The red represents the oceans and the grey represents the land (covered in concrete !), with Betchel stamped across the globe like they own the planet. So what you see represented by the grey in the top left hand corner for example, is the east coast of China and Japan. You can compare it by getting a standard google image globe map up and you’ll see what I mean. Have a look at this link too – top five most sinister logos – google: vigilantcitizen.com/vigilantreport/top-5-most-sinister-corporate-logos:

      He ranks it at No.2, just below Proctor and Gamble – Quote:

      “I don’t need to go into occult symbolism for this logo. It’s just blatant and in your face. It looks like the logo of a villain in a Saturday morning TV cartoon. Why are the oceans red on the logo? Are they filled with the blood of the innocent or something? I mean what are we supposed to think? And why are the continents grey? Are they completely paved with concrete? I especially like the way “Bechtel” is stamped over the planet as if it was saying “We own this place, get the hell off our propriety”. If you don’t know about this mega construction and engineering company, learn about it because it is literally all over the world.

      “Evil corporation” is a cliché and slightly annoying expression used by the corny branch of the liberals. But, trust me, it really applies here. Here are a couple of exploits accomplished by this great organization (all citations are from Wikipedia):

      Stealing water from poor people:

      The Bechtel vs. Bolivia case is round two of a fight over something basic: water. Two years ago Bechtel took over the public water system of Bolivia’s third-largest city, Cochabamba, and within weeks raised rates by as much as 200 percent, far beyond what families there could afford. When the company refused to lower rates, the public revolted. Widespread protests eventually forced Bechtel to leave.

      Building chemical plant for Saddam Hussein:

      In 1988, just after Saddam Hussein had earned international condemnation for using poisonous gas against thousands of Kurds, Bechtel signed contracts with Iraq to build a chemical plant.

      Profiting from the fall of Saddam Hussein:

      Critics in both the United States and allies like Britain have questioned the process by which the U.S. awarded Iraq contracts to American companies. The profiteering from the destruction caused by the shock and awe at the beginning of the war has caused Bechtel to be accused of disaster capitalism

      Profiting from hurricane Katrina:

      In 2005, Bechtel was awarded a no-bid contract by the Federal Emergency Management Agency to install temporary housing for the Hurricane Katrina disaster relief effort. The lack of competitive bidding for the contracts was criticized, as was the high cost of the contracts and the failure to support local, minority-owned businesses.

      There are many more pretty examples. Also, read on Bechtel’s environmental record. It might explain why the water is red and the earth is grey on their logo”.
