1973 Oil crisis.jpg
The 1973 Oil "crisis" appears to have been planned in Saltsjöbaden, Sweden by a small group including bankers and senior US oil executives.
The events of Watergate, which finished Richard Nixon politically, were the second time the cabal had staged a silent coup in US in a decade. This not only increasing their confidence and influence, but it settled the issue of leadership, putting the US deep state into the hands of George H. W. Bush.

Watergate coup17 June 19729 August 1974This is framed by the official narrative as a simple case of political corruption, one which proves that "the system works", since the powerful perpetrator was caught - if not actually brought to justice, since outgoing president Nixon was immediately pardoned by his successor, Gerald Ford. In fact it may well have been the outworking of a deeper political power struggle at work.
