During a talk with the Wall Street Journal CEO Council, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg told a group of chief executives that government needs to impose a carbon tax in order to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil and fight terrorism at the same time.
“If this country ever wants to be energy independent, if we ever want to stop sending our monies to the terrorists who want to take our freedoms away and kill us, we’ve got to wean ourselves off all this foreign oil,” said Bloomberg. “We’ve got to make this decision: do you want to stop sending your money to terrorists and have terrorists come here, or do you not?”
Is Bloomberg worried about terrorists in Canada?
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the largest share of foreign oil imported by the United States comes from Canada (20.1%) followed by Saudi Arabia (13.8%). The United States and Saudi Arabia have shared full diplomatic relations since 1933.
In October, the State Department told Congress of its intention to make the biggest arms sale in American history — an estimated $60.5 billion — to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a country Bloomberg says harbors terrorists enabled by Americans driving cars and heating their homes.
It is true Saudi Arabia was (and still is) involved in terrorism — at the behest of the CIA and the United States. In the 1980s, the CIA and Saudi Arabia shared a special relationship while coordinating the covert war against the Soviets in Afghanistan. Saudis donated around $40 billion total for the war.
Saudi Osama bin Laden was tapped by the CIA in Instanbul to work with the Mujaheddin. He raised money from private Saudi citizens. An important part of the effort included introducing fanatical religious beliefs subsequently taken up by the Taliban, a movement organized by Pakistan’s ISI and paid for by the CIA and Saudi oil money.
It should not be a surprise the Saudis have shared an intimate relationship with the CIA and western intelligence for a number of decades. The Saudis worked closely with the Muslim Brotherhood — long ago compromised by British and U.S. intelligence — in the 1950s to depose the Arab nationalist and Egyptian president Gamal Abddul Nasser. The Saudis later worked with the CIA and exported their austere version of Sunni Islam, Wahhabism, to Afghanistan and Muslim points beyond.
In the 1970s, when Frank Church’s committee attempted to investigate CIA misdeeds, the Saudis teamed up with France, Egypt, Morocco, and Iran to form the Safari Club to put down rebellions in Africa and depose unfavorable governments in the neighborhood. Under Bush the Lesser, we discovered that the CIA was back in a big way.
Saudi Prince Turki bin Faisal said the operation had the official blessing of CIA director George Bush Senior and the Saudi intelligence chief, Kamal Adham, who “transformed a small Pakistani merchant bank, the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), into a world-wide money-laundering machine, buying banks around the world to create the biggest clandestine money network in history.”
The NSC’s Oliver North established a covert and illegal network to divert illicit funds from weapons sold to the Iranians to the Nicaraguan Contras. North used the Bank of Credit and Commerce International to channel money. Saudi Arabia laundered money and moved it through the BCCI and on to the renegade Contras.
On the other side of the Iran-Iraq exploit Saudi Arabia, along with Jordan, Kuwait, and Egypt, supplied Iraq with U.S. howitzers, helicopters, bombs, and other weapons with the secret approval of the Reagan administration during the Iran-Iraq war. In total, more than a million Iraqis and Iranians were butchered in this regional war instigated by Reagan, Bush, the NSC, CIA, Saudi intelligence, Pakistan’s ISI, and various junior partners and front organizations, including the BCCI, the spook bank.
The interests of the Saudi Kingdom were first and foremost in mind when elements of Saudi intelligence went to work with the global intelligence Mafia led by the CIA on the morning of September 11, 2001. Saudi operatives and patsies played a dominant role. Osama was directly linked to the Saudi royal family through his family.
Michael Bloomberg knows the Canadians and the Saudis are under the control of the New World Order. He also knows that virtually all terrorism of significance is orchestrated by the state.
But then Michael Bloomberg did not gather with the prestigious Wall Street Journal CEO Council to discuss history, politics, and the machinations of the global elite as they take down country after country.
Big time terrorist events like the mass slaughters in New York, London, Madrid, and Mumbai are invariably orchestrated by the state, as former German Defense Minister Andreas Von Buelow pointed out after the staged event in Washington and New York.
Bloomberg had a very explicit agenda — propagandize the notion of global climate change ahead of a plan to fleece the commoners in a staged effort to combat a looming biological threat.
