John Walvoord Predicted It and Michael Ruppert, From The Wilderness, Found It: One Grand Piece Of The Larger Puzzle

John Walvoord's classic, "Armageddon Oil and the Middle East Crisis: What the Bible Says About the Future of the Middle East and the End of Western Civilization" and his follow up, "Armageddon, Oil, and Terror" has continued to withstand the uneasiness and Plausible Deniability given by most Christian hierarchy facing the church today.

Why is that?

Only the upper echelon can answer that and one day they shall.

But in the meantime, on the topic of Geopolitics and Oil I found an interesting correlation to yesterdays "whistleblowers" and the regressive state that continues to unravel before us.

Not only did the benchmark of Oil Geopolitics get nailed down by Christian Theologian John Walvoord, especially in lieu of the current consensual dialogue we are finding our selves with the Saudi's Arab Peace Initiative, but it's Cross was lifted higher on the "Oil Hill of Calvary", if you permit me, from "From The Wilderness" editor and "Crossing The Rubicon - The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil" author, and ex-Los Angeles Police detective, Michael C. Ruppert.

Basically, on the subject of Oil and Geopolitics, Walvoord foresaw it and Ruppert discovered it.

For more scrutiny, at your leisure, take a look at both writers analysis on the subject and compare it's discourse.

We have Walvoord's and Ruppert's great works to read, but in addition, below is an excerpt from Michael Ruppert's 2008 Retrospective.

Both should enrich and stimulate a much needed perspective in today's Geo-Polities and Diplomacy.

Michael Ruppert's 2008 Retrospective

March 24, 2008 - I have owed you this update for a long time. Things have evolved so much and so relentlessly that there was no solid ground on which to plant my feet, take a look around and tell you what I saw with a steady gaze. I can do that now.

I know it's not necessary for me to point out to ever-loyal FTW supporters how right we got it in our eight and a half years. A look at economics, energy and geopolitics today mirrors - almost exactly - everything I and the FTW writing staff predicted from 2001 through the end of 2006. Oil is over $100 a barrel. Global oil production has never exceeded the levels of late 2005. Gold is settling in at over $1,000 an ounce and $1,500 may be locked in as a floor by year's end.

The US (and global) economy has begun its irreversible collapse.

The US has not (and will not) attack Iran.

Surrogate wars are developing in West Africa and around Venezuela. I predicted this in a mid-June 2005 private meeting with Congressman Roscoe Bartlett, (R) Maryland as I described a map I had made and he had seen on our web site. Its title was, "World Energy Picture, March 2005." (It's on the FTW web site.) A few days after our meeting Bartlett took that map, along with material from other Peak Oil activists like Matt Savinar, and one I had made of Africa into a private, one-on-one meeting with George W. Bush.

The subject of that meeting was Peak Oil.

In the most frightening article we ever published, "Eating Fossil Fuels" (October 3, 2003), the great Dale Allen Pfeiffer starkly described the umbilical between oil and food. We are just at the threshold of what he told us was coming. Read it if you dare.

FTW was right about Pat Tillman. That series was our last great exposé - but it was by no means our first.

The only major prediction we ever got wrong was that there would be a draft; something the Empire has avoided through Stop-Loss, the recruitment of green-card warriors, and a "surge" in enlistments from young men and women who can find no other employment.

We missed the collapse of the US economy by a year and only the deluded claim the worst is over. The major blessing that FTW enjoyed from 1998 through 2006 of having a readership that had the time and resources to read, to learn, and to fight the good fight, has been replaced by an entire population focused solely on immediate economic survival and a desire to stay out of a vortex swirling toward the drain.
