LINDSEY WILLIAMS: HOW CREDIBLE?
I get asked quite frequently to comment on Lindsey Williams’ latest revelations which he claims comes from insider oil men that he came to know while a Baptist oil field chaplain in Alaska. At first Williams was very accurate because of first-hand knowledge about a giant US oil field on Gull Island in the Arctic that the government required to be capped to force US dependence on foreign oil. My own opinion is that it was done to preserve US oil for some future world war in which our foreign oil supplies will be cut off. The powers that be (PTB) aren’t hoping to use that oil for our benefit but for their own control of a provoked war that will push us into a New World Order.
Lindsey developed two sources of insider information while in Alaska. The most important was Ken Fromm who later became the head of ARCO oil and was later fired for talking to Williams about holding Gull Island oil off the market. Ken Fromm has since died and another executive close to Fromm has continued to feed Williams supposed insider information about oil and the globalist threat to America.
I do not believe Fromm was a true insider. He was a lower level player at best, who primarily came into contact with the PTB only when he was threatened by federal agents to cap the huge oil find. Obviously ARCO was compensated under the table. Fromm must have then decided to go along, but he was never high enough to know long-term insider plans (which are constantly between tweaked). His sources may have claimed they were telling him high secrets, but that would be very unlikely unless Fromm was evil enough to be trusted by the PTB. I believe Fromm was probably sincere and caught between the threats of government upon his company and his own principles. That is why he wanted to let Williams in on what he felt was going on.
But no true insider would have been talking to a Christian patriot like Lindsey Williams, and Fromm was eventually called on the carpet for doing so. I think Fromm was gleaning some things from those he knew who were part of the conspiracy and passing along orders from above, but Williams clearly doesn’t understand how the conspiracy works and why he had a too-good-to-be-true relationship going. Now he should be much more skeptical of those feeding him part truth and part error.
The PTB record all telephone conversations and email, especially insiders who might be tempted to talk too much, and all journalists—to make sure nothing gets out they don’t want getting out. No one on our side would be allowed deep into the inside, and if someone did by a fluke, he certainly would be discovered quickly and shut down if he were regularly leaking to someone like Williams who runs around telling everything to the world.
The inconsistent thing about Williams’ story is that he claimed he was threatened into shutting down his speaking engagements and stopping publication of his book (The Non Energy Crisis) about the same time Fromm was fired. But then, magically, new sources start feeding him information again and he can keep peddling stories. That’s fishy.
I have no doubt someone is actually talking to Williams, but that person is not on our side and he’s playing with Williams in order to get him discredited. After Fromm died, I think the PTB decided to keep giving Williams some truths and some falsehoods. Williams is rather naive and self-promoting about some things and that made him a good candidate for parlaying disinformation.
Fromm’s colleague took over the task of feeding Williams information and started off feeding information that correctly predicted a collapse in the price of oil. That cemented Williams’ reputation as someone who still had good inside information. A few years ago, the oil manipulators were storing oil in every possible storage facility and empty tanker they could find in order to create an artificial shortage and jack up the price of oil. Williams’ oil insider friend must have known that excess oil storage capacity was nearing an end and that the manipulation game had run out of rope. He told Williams that oil would drop precipitously to $50 a barrel from over $100, and it happened almost exactly that way.
From that point on, Williams was riding high on the claim that he had a perfect track record. But his sources have been more wrong than right lately. Over a year ago he predicted the price of oil would rise to $150 Barrel and that the dollar would be dead within a very short period. When the Euro crisis hit (which boosted the dollar) he said we have “just 2 to 3 weeks until it happens to US!” It didn’t happen. That isn’t to say there aren’t huge problems, just that his timing was way off.
We are still waiting for his “Get Ready for $5 a Gallon Gasoline and Major Food Price Increases!” claimed months ago. Certainly, he’ll be right eventually, but my point is that when he makes these announcements, he claims specific insider detailed information, and the details are wrong. The more Williams hypes the message the more he is beginning to sound like Chicken Little. His latest predictions are also a bit too specific, though generally have a better chance of coming true:
1). U.S./NATO will incite a war with Iran by Sept/Oct of 2012, just before the election which will boost Obama into office for a second term. I too think they will attack, but I’m not at all sure it will wait until then. However, it is very likely that if the PTB want to put Obama in again, a war right before elections is the way to do it. This is possible or even probable.
2) Next fall, it’s coming down (the whole economy). By the end of 2012 he claims “all private fortunes will be lost that are secured with paper.” [I’d say, no way. A total collapse of paper won’t happen till WWIII, and Iran won’t trigger the big war]
3) Gold going to at least $3,000 [unlikely within a year, but inevitable eventually]
4) Gas will be $8-10/gallon, once the war starts and 40% of the world’s oil supply is cut off [more like 10-20%], and Gull Island’s gigantic oil field in Alaska is already being tapped [Alaska pipeline figures don’t support this].
Frankly, since we never hear from Mr. X himself, we can’t tell if the source is putting out these questionable claims or weather Lindsey Williams is exaggerating them into something specific in order to be dramatic. Once a person gets a reputation for ever more dramatic revelations every time he appears on Alex Jones, it’s pretty hard to stop and say something normal, or admit you’ve been wrong—which he never does.
Lindsey Williams Returns: China is the BIG ONE! Watch China and Russia. “They’re interested in the technology. And once they get it they’ll turn around and throw it right back in our face, just like the Japanese did [before WWII].”
Lindsey Williams on Alex Jones Tv: Lindsey talked with elite insider again (2/24/10) about the future of America and monetary system, the globalist plans for the rest of the world — “The dollar will be dead by 2012.”
Lindsey Williams on the Two Year Globalist Timetable: “They have some definite plans. Now whether they will succeed and accomplish it or not is another story. I hope they don’t, but on the other hand, that is their timeline”
