Hardly anyone talks about oil anymore. We fill up our cars, drive around, without much thought about where all that oil comes from, and where it goes before it’s processed at the refinery.
One thing I found interesting reading the article above is that the US imported 7.86 million barrels of “petroleum” per day from Russia. When considering all the hoopla about reducing our dependence on imported oil, and the truly insane narrative claiming that our dependence on “fossil fuels” is being replaced with “green energy” alternatives, this figure is somewhat surprising to me.
The other thing I did not know is that Russia’s percentage of those imports in 2020 was “7%”. Sanctions, what sanctions? Is that another bullshit narrative we have heard repeated so many times we tended to allow it to enter our consciousness unchallenged? Well, if that’s true, 2020 Russia exported to the US an average of 550,200 barrels per day for each and every day of 2020. That’s a total of 200.8 million barrels of Russian petroleum exported to the US during 2020.
“U.S. oil imports from Russia exceeded last year even the imports from OPEC’s top producer and de facto leader, Saudi Arabia, which—after briefly flooding the U.S. market with its crude in April 2020—drastically cut shipments to the most transparent market to help inventory drawdowns amid collapsing fuel demand globally.”
“As per Bloomberg calculations, the United States imported on average 538,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil and oil products from Russia last year. This was higher than the average American imports of oil from Saudi Arabia, which is estimated to have shipped on average 522,000 bpd to the United States.”
Now, that’s not what the good people of the US are led to believe, is it? I guess it then follows that we need to reexamine the “Russia-is-our-#1-enemy” meme. To what extent can Russia and the US be real enemies if Russian companies are selling this much petroleum to the US on an ongoing basis? And to what extent to these ongoing sales affect America’s and Russian foreign policy?
So much for the Green New Deal. And so much for the evil Russians. Life is good.
So, if data is the “new oil,” what’s it being used for?
Most humans emotionally connect their personal belief system to the belief system of their political party, and so then any attack on their party – legitimate or otherwise – is interpreted by their brain as an attack on themselves. Reason and logic then jump out the nearest window as raw emotion takes the helm.
This is an extremely damaging and regrettable exploit of human nature. Worse, this exploit is as easy to execute as flipping a light switch for the majority of the population.
The largest psyop in history continues unfolding right before our eyes, armed with incalculable amounts of human behavior data collected from internet and smart phone usage geared toward manipulating us to walk in lock-step into the incinerator of our own destruction.
The security state cannot run if you do not participate in the 5G technology boom. The cell phone is the “weakest link” in the master plan to control our minds. One simple step. One decision. Think about that. How important is freedom to you?
