Shakespeare said it best - "Hell Is Empty, And All The Devils Are Here".

I wonder why Thom never sheds a light on the new owners of the Sudan people's oil - Glencore International AG, and Nat Rothschild. Nat Rothchild is BP's Tony Hayward's new mentor. I think his relationship to Glencore, although not outright ownership or even control, could be described accurately as heavy involvement, to say the least, leaving external investors to doubt the independence of the board of directors. He involved Tony Hayward in a multi-billion dollar floatation called Vallares, after Tony took the fall for the Gulf oil spill. I guess not everyone thought Tony did a bad job, after all, he helped mask an oil spill with a chemical spill, thereby reducing BP's liabilities because less oil appeared at the water's surface. More recently Nat and Tony expanded their ownership of a multi-billion dollar Turkish oil company called Genel Energy, with fields in Kurdistan - pay attention to that region.

Glencore has it's own ethical challenges, including in the Congo DRC. Also read: "Glencore In The Democratic Republic Of Congo: Profit Before Human Rights And The Environment, from the Bread For All the Catholic Lenten Fund.

The Rothschild’s South Sudan Oil Grab
July 17, 2011 — Dean Henderson

On July 9, 2011 South Sudan became the world’s 193rd nation. Less than a week later violence has erupted in South Kordofan, an area on the new border between Sudan and South Sudan which is controlled by Sudan and rich in oil. Not content with the seizure of South Sudan’s oilfields, the Rothschild-led Eight Families banking cartel looks set to push the new border further north, grabbing yet more crude oil from the Sudanese people.

For decades Western intelligence agencies backed the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army (SPLA) in an attempt to lop off the southern half of Sudan for the Four Horsemen of Oil. The region contains 75% of Sudan’s oil reserves. What became Africa’s longest running civil war finally came to an end when Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir was pressured into ceding the southern part of his country to the IMF/World Bank vampires after the conflict they created left more than 2 million people dead. [1]

Within days of declaring itself a sovereign nation, South Sudan’s state oil company, Nilepet formed a joint venture with Glencore International Plc to market its oil. Glencore is controlled by the Rothschilds. The PetroNile joint venture will be 51 percent controlled by Nilepet and 49 percent by Glencore. [2]

On Friday South Sudan’s new President Salva Kiir Mayardit signed a law formally establishing the Central Bank of South Sudan. Sudan is one of five countries – along with Cuba, North Korea, Syria and Iran – whose central bank is not under the control of the Rothschild-led Eight Families central banking cartel. It is therefore no coincidence that the currency of this newest Rothschild oil fiefdom is called the South Sudan Pound. [3]

Already in 1993 Sudanese President al-Bashir had accused Saudi Arabia of providing arms to Johnny Garung’s Sudanese People’s Liberation Army (SPLA). The Israeli Mossad also supplied the SPLA for years through Kenya with CIA approval. In 1996 the Clinton Administration announced that military aid to Ethiopia, Eritrea and Uganda was to be used to arm the SPLA for an offensive on Khartoum. [4]

When that bloody endeavor failed, the Eight Families henchmen began arming rebels in Chad. Chad has long been an important country in both Exxon Mobil and Chevron Texaco’s North Africa oil production schemes. Chadian President Idriss Déby , who came to power in 1991, was cozy with Big Oil. He also ranked 16th on Parade Magazine’s 2009 World’s Worst Dictator list. [5]

The Chad-based rebels had two purposes. The CIA’s House of Saud paymaster provided support for the National Front for Salvation (NFS), which attempted to overthrow Libyan President Mohamar Qaddafi. In 1990, following a successful Libyan-backed counter-coup against the Chad government which was sponsoring the NFS, the US evacuated 350 NFS leaders with Saudi financing. The US restored $5 million in aid to the dictatorial Kenyan government of Daniel Arap Moi so that Kenya would house the NFS leaders, whom other African governments refused to take. Arap Moi later figured in CIA covert operations in Somalia, where the Saudis had also financed counterinsurgency. [6]

Western intelligence agencies then used the government of Chad to finance the Justice & Equality Movement (JEM). From bases in Chad, these terrorists launched forays into the Darfur region of Sudan, creating a massive refugee crisis, while opening a second northern front in Big Oil’s SPLA-led southern flank war against Sudan. [7]

Western media predictably blamed the conflict in Darfur completely on the Sudanese government and the liberal idiocracy was led along by their naive noses, ala Yugoslavia. In March 2009 the Eight Families’ favorite kangaroo court – the International Criminal Court (ICC) – charged Sudanese President al-Bashir with war crimes. There was no mention of JEM in the ICC charges.

By the end of August 2006, Chad’s President Déby had taken a left turn, calling for Chad to get a 60% stake of its domestic oil output after decades of receiving “crumbs” from the foreign companies which ran the industry. He singled out Chevron and Petronas for refusing to pay taxes totalling $486.2 million. [8]

In 2008 Sudanese President al-Bashir attended Déby’s re-election inauguration, signaling a warming of relations that would eventually end the Darfur conflict. With al-Bashir still sitting atop huge oil reserves, the Eight Families now cooked up a plan for South Sudan to cecede from Sudan. Reeling from the constant attacks on his people which had left two million dead, al-Bashir was forced into agreeing with the split.

With violence already flaring in Sudanese-controlled and oil-rich South Kordofan, it appears that the SPLA and their Glencore/Rothschild sponsors are not content to have stolen most of Sudan’s oilfields. The vampires want them all.

By the way, some interesting photos I came across from the extremely exclusive Bullingdon Club, where members were Nat Rothschild, David Cameron, Boris Johnson, and various aristocrats. From 1987 and 1992.


The photo with Nat Rothschild seemd doctored, but there is no doubt that it is him and that he was a member of the Bullingdon Club.

I'd be highly suspect of the info on AbelDanger. One of their references regarding Rasputin comes from the Internet Movie DataBase, not usually associated with historical fact, but with hysterical nonsense.

That said, your info about Sudan is spot on.

Thanks about the Suda links. I mainly posted the Abeldanger link for the Bullingdon Club photos. However, here is a clearer picture and a more detailed description, form the UK's Daily Mail:

We're talking about extreme privilege and power.

Just to reiterate:

Mr Rothschild is also close to Tony Hayward, the former BP chief executive who was last week appointed to be Glencore’s senior independent director.

The Gulf oil spill's Tony Hayward of BP (British Petroleum, formerly Anglo-Iranian Oil) is now working in a senior capacity in Glencore, which controls most of the Sudan people's oil. Put there by Nat Rothschild, the future 5th Baron de Rothschild. Whose family financed the colonisation of South Africa, through their sponsoring of Cecil Rhodes and providing startup funding for De Beers, the world's largest diamond mining and trading company.

All of South Africa's history (the creation of protectorates like Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland by Cecil Rhodes, and the waging for the Zulu War, and the first and second Boer Wars, were done to ensure the extraction of diamonds from the eastern party of South Africa, by De Beers. A country shaped for the business needs of one corporation. And here Nat Rothschild is, creating the country of South Sudan for the purpose of the extraction of the Sudanese people's oil by Glencore.

None of this would happen if by international law, all the proceeds of natural resources must go to the people of the country.

Small world, and history is repeating itself.

It was JP Morgan who went halfsies with Cecil Rhodes on all the Gold and Diamonds in Eden.

History is not made on YouTube, nor is it reliably reflected.

AbelDanger is a comic strip.

Anonymous Green,

Anglo-American Corporation was started by JP Morgan and Sir Ernest Oppenheimer.

However, De Beers was funded by NM Rothschild. From Rothschild.com:

" With the provision of funding for the creation of De Beers in 1887, Rothschild also turned to investment in the mining of precious stones, in Africa and India. "


Anglo-American Corporation and De Beers have shared shareownership, 33% of AA shares are owned by De Beers, and 33% of De Beers shares are owned by AA.

According to the Anglo website, on the 1 million startup loan and it's providers:


JP Morgan & Company 25%
Newmont Mining Corporation 25%
Ernest Oppenheimer, family and 'associates' 50%

Total founding loan: 1 million pounds

(CONSCIOUS BEING ALLIANCE) US-ISRAELI WAR IN SUDAN MASKED BY GEORGE CLOONEYKPFA speaks to Keith Harmon Snow about George Clooney's March 16 arrest and the new anti-Sudan legislation HR 4169 built on the momentum of the phony KONY2012 propaganda about Uganda.17 March 2012

Photo: Ugandan Presidnet Yoweri Museveni greets the delegation of petrol mercenaries led by Tony Bukingham (far right) in Uganda. Buckingham & Company are tied to networks of shady petroleum companies Heritage Oil & Gas and mercenary firms Sandline International and Branch Energy. These are the people responsible for terrorism in Uganda, Congo and Sudan. KPFA's Ann Garrison speaks with Keith Harmon Snow about George Clooney's arrest and the new legislation HR 4169 regarding Sudan and using the momentum of phony KONY 2012 propaganda. Click on the link at the bottom of this page to listen to the broadcast. Skip to 00:23:40 for the segment on Sudan.

Here's the original unedited commentary:

KPFA/Ann Garrison:

Keith Harmon Snow, Congressmen Royce and McGovern's proposed House Resolution 583 calls for action on the momentum built by KONY 2012, and more funds for logistical, intelligence, and communications support to the African troops and U.S. Special Forces trying to capture Kony. It also calls for U.S. restrictions on, quote, "any individuals or governments, including the Republic of Sudan, found to be providing training, supplies, financing, or support of any kind to Joseph Kony or the LRA." Could you comment on Sudan being singled out, even though none of these troops are hunting Kony in Sudan?

Keith Harmon Snow:

George Clooney on being arrested made the statement: "We ask "[t]he government in Khartoum to stop RANDOMLY killing its own innocent men, women and children. Stop raping them and stop starving them."

The Government of Sudan is not RANDOMLY killing people. Clooney's ostensible outrage is ridiculous. Like Angelina Jolie, Clooney travels to and from Sudan with official Pentagon and intelligence support and protection. The United States and Israel and our NATO partners are involved in a full-scale military conflagration in Sudan involving guerrilla and covert operations forces. This should be exposed like the Iran Contra scandal - but of course all the US government officials know what is going on. The US covert war against Islamic Sudan began in 1990 and through decades of simmering low-intensity warfare we have slowly but surely eroded the power of the Khartoum government and usurped their sovereign lands through all kinds of mass atrocities paid for by US taxpayers.

The very same U.S. and Israeli military and intelligence officials involved in genocide and war crimes and regime change in Sudan are responsible for these same atrocities in Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and Congo and they are working with George Clooney. These are the same people tied to phony Kony 2012 agenda. Why doesn't Clooney protest the 10 million dead in Congo?

The four biggest propagandists on Sudan are Clooney, intelligence agent John Prendergast, Smith College professor Eric Reeves and New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof. These people imagine themselves taking the moral high ground. This is the nature of white supremacy. You cannot trust ANYTHING that they say.

They make up facts, distort reality, cover-up the massive U.S. military and intelligence and financial intervention going on right now in Sudan. They are presented as liberals - even progressives! They are published almost everywhere in mainstream or alternative media saying whatever they like as if it is GOSPEL. Of course, look a little deeper and you find extensive right wing, anti-gay, anti-women, anti-environment, anti-labor union, pro-corporate interests backing them. George Clooney and Reeves and Prendergast and Royce and Kristoff should be indicted for supporting war crimes in Sudan.


Congressman McGovern's House Resolution 4169 would create sanctions on any government or individual, quote, "selling, leasing, loaning, exporting, or otherwise transferring military equipment to the Government of Sudan or any person controlled or supported by the Government of Sudan," unquote. But, President Obama added South Sudan to the list of countries eligible to buy weapons manufactured in the U.S. in the first week of January. H.R. 4169 also proposes sanctions on anyone providing property, goods, technology, or services of more than half a million dollars to Sudan in 12 months. Do you see anything much different in this playbook than in that for Iraq, Libya, Iran and Syria?

Keith Harmon Snow:

California Congressman Ed Royce -- former chair of African subcommittee -- has authored this legislation basically advancing our covert military campaign for Regime Change in Khartoum. We already control South Sudan, and parts of Darfur. The United States and Israel, with the direct involvement of Ugandan dictator Yoweri Museveni, assassinated the Pentagon's former proxy guerrilla leader John Garang because he was about to become president of a UNIFIED Sudan. John Garang was trained at the School of the Americas and he did the US and Israel's dirty work. You see the US/Israeli guerrilla forces - the Sudan People's Liberation Army - in the stupid posed pictures where the Invisible Children founders all have guns in their hands but the KONY 2012 doesn't tell you who these guerrillas are.

Well, the Pentagon and the Christian right and Israeli Mossad have armed and trained and funded these SPLA killers, because they don't want a powerful Islamic state like Sudan. The strategic and tactical invasion and occupation of South Sudan occurred exactly as it occurred in Rwanda through the genocidal invasion by Paul Kagame, Rwanda's current dictator. This is exactly what they are doing in Congo as well.

Congressman Ed Royce is responsible for genocide and war crimes in Central Africa and the Horn. You can see this by reading the US Congressional Hearings that took place at the time Rwanda and Congo were being invaded, and while Museveni in Uganda was committing genocide against the Acholi in the north were KONY is the bogeyman, just like President Bashir is the bogeyman - read terrorist - in Sudan.

So what we are seeing is simply a sub-saharan extension of the full spectrum military and propaganda attacks against Iran and Syria, just as we have already seen with Libya, Afghanistan and Iraq. Khartoum has ties with the Palestinians, with Eritrea--another country under US attack due to their attempts to seek autonomy from shock doctrine capitalism, and Iran. But Khartoum also has tight ties with the Central Intelligence Agency!

This is not the black and white picture George Clooney and Dr. Eric Reeves and Nicholas Kristoff paint of the Government of Sudan RANDOMLY raping and starving people. These US agents like Clooney and Mia Farrow and Reeves don't talk about the Israeli shipments of weapons into south Sudan, for example, or the huge land grab by Wall Street investors.

This is all part of the Politics of Genocide, and that is the subject of the documentary film we are making. People can read more about these issues on my web site Conscious Being Alliance.

KPFA: That was Keith Harmon Snow on proposed House Resolutions 538 and 4169 regarding Sudan and the hunt for Joseph Kony. H.R. 4169, the proposed Sudan Peace, Security, and Accountability Act of 2012, is sponsored by Massachusetts Congressman Jim McGovern, and co-sponsored by eight other members of Congress, including Oakland's Barbara Lee.

Just an update. Tony Hayward is no longer a senior director at Glencore, he is now the Chairman of the board of directors of a newly merged GlencoreXstrata.

(GUARDIAN UK) Former BP boss Tony Hayward named Glencore Xstrata chairman
Permanent appointment marks remarkable turnaround for executive who left BP in disgrace over Gulf of Mexico disaster

The appointment marks an extraordinary rehabilitation for Hayward, who was forced out of BP in July 2010 after the Gulf of Mexico disaster – the biggest marine oil spill in history. He was vilified across America after he said "I want my life back" in the aftermath of the explosion that killed 11 people and devastated the livelihoods of many others.

There's a 1 in 20 Chance of the Apocalypse. Shouldn't We Act Now?

A new study published in Science argues that we as a civilization need to move "rapidly" -- as in almost immediately -- towards a carbon emissions free future if we are to have any chance of holding off runaway global warming:
