Now this is real SHTF event:


A close friend of British Prime Minister David Cameron has been found dead in a portable toilet at the Glastonbury music festival. 


And in other news, the CIA/Google democratic revolution brigade has started it's next adventure: Russia.

Thanks for the links Ahmeexnal.
Very interesting twists and turns the world is taking.
When near and dear one's to PTB start dying under mysterious circumstances, it's time to pay attention. In Cliff's terminology, a temporal marker.

Plus, he was found dead in a toilet. Coincidental or otherwise, this is a loaded signature.

This coming weeks is going to be a mess by Friday it looks like. oil wars, war wars, word wars, world wars, losers and bigger losers.

Signature explanation (Tin foil hat on).... (use Paul Harvey voice) It seems when the CIA created a terrorist organization and needed a name, they went with a slangy version of the toilet in Arabic. The slangy name...Al-queda

Now if he was found dead in a bathtub, I would suspect Jim Morrison. (hat off)

What a coincidence: I'm shocked, shocked I tell you! (doing my best Claude Rains impersonation)

Bilderbergers meet....and 

1. Merkel & Germans suddenly get all compliant and "want to do the right thing", re: Greece crisis, Euro, et al

2. US & IEA orchestrate the release of some 60M barrels (all sources)

What about the stuff we don't know they've planned?  or, is it true they all have our best interests at heart?

Yeah those old wood gas generators are cool, work well and are cheap but man they are DIR-TAY.  I'd use it in an emergency perhaps but perhaps not too hot for the envioronment.

They work well on a small scale. A friend and I are planning to build a small one for a 5 HP motor that will power a 100 amp 12 volt alternator. That will be enough to generate the required electricity to power a small car, or small farm tractor, or whatever you need to operate. After much research we found that there needs to be a complete dismantling of the aparatus every 100 hours of operation, with a pertial cleaning every 20. Over all it's better than the alternative.

Good luck everyone.

I use a bean can wood gas stove occasionally when Hiking although to be honest a convential commercial gas stove is better in a wet environment.

Also think the Heineken Home Keg is a perfect size for a Hobo stove and it can also be used as a more refined stove such as below.


Did not think you could extract fuel from the wood gasification process but I imagine it is a inefficient mechanism to extract energy , it may be best to invest in a horse and a few acres of grazing land.

Drives me nots that they are releasing oil in responce to a monetary issues (barnake too cheap money). Hi we are going to fix something, which has nothing to do with the major cause. These shits won't address the real issue at all. the central bankers and too chap money. Another reason not to vote for Obama. (I voted for him before). Not again, based on the likely republican field I am not voting in the next presidential election

Well there ya go.
Achieve the higher energy prices, inducing further conservation without the blame, for external handy scapegoats thus abound.
Prices high enough to justify QEinfinity.
And reason aplenty for further expansion of kinetic activities throughout the oil producing and gold hoarding world.
Necessitating further expansion of UN global resolutions to further the peace to replace the wars so cleverly approved under the guise of R2P.

Priceless opportunity to further a very specific agenda.
There will be an open newspaper/MSM quiz later.

Look at it from OPEC's point of view. Oil drops $4/bbl on the front month, they sell roughly 30 mb/d. $4 x 30 mb/d x (30 days per month) = $3.6B/month. Add in some bankster manipulation and they are losing money big time. Oil prices are set at the margin, and OPEC may just prove that works both ways.

Maybe there is no oil in the reserve

Perhaps this just another digital entry between friends

Are you going to see the oil shipped?

No, just a few ledger entries and we split the pot

The public doesn't care---they are not paying the bill

No one will say a word

At this point Saudi Arabia will keep selling us oil as long as we stay in Iraq. Saudi Arabia fears Iran and we can use the blunder that is the Invasion of Iraq as leverage over them. When the US withdraws its troops from Iraq there will be a massive civil war (Sunnis vs. Shiites) and everyone knows it. The real winner of the civil war will be Iran when the mostly Shiite populated Iraq goes towards a government in favor to Iran (which will be much to Saudi Arabia's discontent).

Do you ever notice that whenever we say we're going to withdraw from Iraq, Saudi Arabia freaks out? They don't want to see Iran grow even more in power. We will use the Invasion of Iraq (which destabilized the region) to keep getting oil from Saudi Arabia. Remember when W promised cheaper oil after the invasion? It may be time to start thanking him, but I would recommend thanking a veteran more than him.

If everyone knows there is eventually going to be a civil war in Iraq, why would Saudi Arabia not just give up? Perhaps they need time to expand their military power and be able to counter any threat from Iran.

Reality is it's the same as Greece actually defaulting; viz, why in hell do markets go through all these machinations, gyrations, swings when it is accepted that Greece will, in the end default.
