SPECIAL REPORT SERIES by Lady Michelle Jennifer Santos – TSR Founder & Publisher and Strategy/Peace Negotiator with the UN Security Council Special Envoy to the Arab Nations
May 19, 2011 (TSR) – Oil. Always been, always have. What else is there? Sand surfing and camel racing? Given the vast energy resources that form the backbone of western economies, influence and involvement in the Middle East has been of paramount importance for the former and current imperial and super powers, including France, Britain, USA and the former Soviet Union.
Hear ye, hear ye, Lend me your Conscience, please. Is it ON?
Let’s do history. The region had been a hotbed for religious conflict and wars over other rich resources and land. The declining Ottoman Empire paved way for the rising European imperial and colonial powers interested in securing various territories and controlling access to Asia.
For centuries, western populations have viralling the same propaganda and vilification of the Arab and other people of the Middle East, and of Islam in general. During the European colonial times, as so vividly examined by Edward Said, in his well-respected book, Orientalism. This negative stereotyping has served to provide justifications for involvement and to ensure “stability” for the “national interests” of the powers that want to be involved in the region. We see this repeated again, after September 11, 2001 when the Twin Towers was attacked. Even more so now, if you are to listen and read to American Islamophobia rhetoric in their mainstream news and political channels. The average American is bombarded with such preposterous racial and religious hatred that ostracizing Muslims has now become part of daily living. American “allies” have even succumb to such petty talk that other governments jumping on the hate bandwagon against a conjured phantom enemy, called Al Qaeda – a group that was not even known nor recognized in Africa and Middle East until it was coined, by the “Saviors”.
This cultural stereotyping and racism has occurred in the modern times all too often. In the 1980s, war films depicting an Arab or Islamic group as the bad guys were common place, sometimes reflecting prevailing turmoils at the time. Even in the 1990s, those ideas continued, where the bad guy was often a despotic Arab from one of the “rogue states” and as a result of the terrorist attacks against the US in September 11, 2001 and the resulting “War on terror”, such imagery is likely to continue. Over such a long time then, such boundaries of discourse about the Middle East have already been framed. To overstep those boundaries is to be labeled anti-Semitic, neo-Nazi, anti-West or some other equally negative label. For most journalists in the mainstream then, self-censorship is often the course, sometimes unknowingly.
To maintain superiority, control and influence over the region, the West has placed corrupt Arab leaders into positions of power and supported the overthrow of those that are not seen as favorable. This has also served to keep their populations at bay, in return for militarization, power and personal wealth of the elite. Sometimes this has been done in the name of fighting communism. The common theme underlying it though has been the struggle to control access to important resources such as oil.
The Middle East is the most militarized region in the world and most arms sales head there. A suppressed people that sees US influence as a major root cause of the current problems in the Middle East has led to a rise in Islamic militancy, acts of terrorism and anti-west sentiment, anti-US in particular. When looking at some of the actions of the US, it can often be seen why this is unfortunately so.
America is the largest consumer of oil in the world. She is addicted to oil. Enough said.
There is so much to say about the Libya, Egypt, Syria, Tunisia and everything else that is happening in the Middle East. Due to the volatility and the safety of our own fellow diplomats working on brokering the peace, The Santos Republic are not at liberty to give the full report that will shed TRUTH about everything. However, I do encourage to read my “ranting” blog for Sarcozy, Cameron, and Obama for this is the most truthful behind the scenes you can get from anywhere as we found out that everything is part of the entire “agenda”. I decided to write something, even if it is just incremental context, in hopes that the majority on this planet can wake up and not believe in everything they are hearing in the news. There are many things that are not being mentioned because MONEY and GREED is what controls everything this very moment. People have been killed, threatened and bought because they were not allowed to reveal the FULL TRUTH. So my dear readers, and friends, you know me as someone who will stand up even if I am the last person on Earth to do so for truth, even if everyone walks out on me, I must stand up in the sea of cowards for the sake of our future, for the innocent and those who need the impetus to believe that there are still those who will not waiver nor sell their integrity for any amount of money. Those who know me very well, I don’t want to just express truth. I live it, regardless what anyone says. I cannot stand idly when innocent people are used as means. HUMAN LIVES are the most priceless commodity we have on this planet, but many have forgotten this. It is my hope that this little pebble will have a ripple effect, while I wait for the full report to be released through The Santos Republic. Keep us all in prayer. We have lost many crew from this nonsense.
There is enough information online that you can put together to have the full true picture, really. Here is a sample, dear Readers. But like all unadulterated truth, it is quite difficult to swallow. This article is not an attack to the American people. This is a mirror to show American Foreign Policy for what it truly is. It is not the people. It is the one running behind the ones running the government who are bought by greed, masked in “freedom fighters” and “peace”. Let us for once, see truth for what it is and CHANGE. We cannot have peace and common prosperity when we have governments who extend opportunistic friendships. We cannot have peace by forcing everyone into conformity. Harmony means balance. Harmony does not mean sameness. It is embracing diversity and respecting each other.
I found this brief video from Gen. Wesley Kanne Clark, Sr., a retired general of the United States Army and former US Presidential candidate. Clark commanded Operation Allied Force in the Kosovo War during his term as the Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO from 1997 to 2000. Clark joined the 2004 race for the Democratic Party presidential nomination as a candidate on September 17, 2003, but withdrew from the primary race on February 11, 2004, after winning the Oklahoma state primary, endorsing and campaigning for the eventual Democratic nominee, John Kerry. Clark was considered a potential candidate for the Democratic nomination in 2008, but, on September 15, 2007, endorsed Senator Hillary Clinton. After Clinton dropped out of the Presidential race, Clark endorsed the then-presumptive Democratic nominee, Barack Obama.Clark currently serves as the co-chairman of Growth Energy, an ethanol lobbying groupand on the board of directors of BNK Petroleum.
This video is an interview by Democracy Now, stating the 10 year plan in the making of the Oil countries for USA hegemonic plans. He stated that this was already planned from the top, nine days after Sept 11, 2001.
(NOTE: When General Wes Clark found out my report about Libya, they made sure to remove the evidentiary video and therefore we are replacing it with this video: below. This report triggered a closer surveillance of The Santos Republic and yours truly. – Lady Michelle-Jennifer Santos, May 6, 2012)
Well, you will know soon about this War Criminal in my future reports.
Fast forward to 2011 …
It is now three (3) months of conflict in Libya.
Let us do a recap of the Key events in the Libya crisis:
– February 15-19: Protests against Muammar Gaddafi’s regime in the eastern city of Benghazi and nearby Al-Baida are put down forcefully, but the movement spreads and turns into an insurrection.

Turn the page. Lo and behold, Osama bin Laden is dead. Great timing.
Another page. Obama decides for re-election and takes all the credit for the “War on Terror”.
What did Gaddafi do even after all the West has been bullying him? He sends an endorsement letter to Obama.
Now, dear Readers. I trust that you use your own conscience and stand for truth. The Santos Republic is and will be the voice 21st Century generation. This generation will not stand for anymore lies and deception. Let us face these truths as self-evident, and do something to rectify them.
Allow me to brush TRUTH on you.
There is a lot of media disinformation regarding Libya. “The international community to the rescue”. “NATO bombings to protect civilians.” Historically, the revenues of the oil economy have been channelled towards building the country’s social infrastructure.
Libya supplies 60% of your diesel. They are the largest producing oil nation in North Africa. Any wonder why the so-called rebels are hitting on the oil towns? Uhm, yeah. Put the puzzles. They were hired. By WHO is what you should be asking.
Libya has the highest HDI (Human Development Index) of all of Africa Over the past 30 years, Libya has steadily increased and is now in the second category of countries (”High Human Development”).
The development indicators for Libya are the highest in Africa.
There is no unemployment. Life expectancy is of the order of 74.4 years, comparable to levels prevailing in the advanced industrial countries. Under 5 mortality is of the order of 17 o/ooo.
Life expectancy at birth (years) 74.5
Prevalence of undernourishment in total population (% of population) <5
Expenditure on health, public (% of GDP) 1.9
Under-five mortality (per 1,000 live births) 17
Life expectancy at birth (years) 74.5
Education Mean years of schooling (of adults) (years) 7.3
Adult literacy rate (both sexes) (% aged 15 and above) 88.3 1
Combined gross enrolment ratio in education (both sexes) (%) 95.8 1 2
Expenditure on education (% of GDP) (%) 3.4
Internet users (per100 people) 5.1
Mean years of schooling (of adults) (years) 7.3
Expected Years of schooling (of children) (years) 16.5 1
Income GNI per capita (2008 PPP US$) LN 9.7
Indicator Value Notes
GDP per capita (2008 PPP US$) 16,999 1
It should be noted that some of these accomplishments have been eroded since the mid-2000s as a result of agreements reached with the IMF.
The “humanitarian war” on Libya has already destroyed part of the country’s social infrastructure including hospitals.
The objective of the bombings is to destabilize and destroy a country, take possession of its oil wealth and impoverish its population.
Yes, Gaddafi is very much loved by his people. Why do you think he is still alive? He has 75% support. That is something the mainstream media does not tell you. You have to be there. You have to be trusted. My heart goes out to Mr. Gaddafi and all the sons he has lost from all these lies.
If he is removed, you are left with the five (5) clans who will also kill each other. Arab nations like Libya cannot have the same model democracy these Western “saviors” are feeding the world. What they are doing, simply put, is creating another Somalia or Balkan wars. Why? Because while the people kill themselves, the “saviors” can take the oil like they were doing in Iraq and other places quietly underneath the noise. Where is people’s conscience? Why do you call this INTERVENTION? Intervention on what? Libya and Gaddafi was doing just fine. Oh yeah, you need more oil.
This nonsense of violation of free speech towards journalists, let me ask you this. If you know that the journalists that are down there are reporting one-sided, and have their editors craft it to align to the same propaganda, will you allow them to say something? This is the very reason, why Mr. Gaddafi only trusts The Santos Republic. WE got the full picture from all sides. I was there, front and center. WE are the ones who made sure Gaddafi appeared to mainstream media and be able to give those soundbites to the world. That is why we are posting it here. THAT is TRUTH. The World Constitution has been violated once again. America is still using their Monroe Doctrine as the heart of their foreign policy. THAT is an obvious fact around the world. Why can’t they just fix their own country and drill their own oil? Is Arab blood worth less than Americans? To my dear American friends, as someone who also works in petroleum world, may I ask you this blunt question? How does it feel to drive your cars knowing they are stolen or paid for with innocent blood of children, women and men? I was there. I saw the children died right before people can even carry them to the hospital. I was there when they bombed thousands of in a university town that no mainstream media spoke nothing about. How does it feel to have your comforts? Are you that one-sided to think the world only revolves around you? You seriously think you do good things around the world? That is what your media and government want you to think. Do you dare listen to the other side? Will you for once listen without being defensive? Will you honor people’s lives? Libya did not do anything to you. The Middle East are just minding their own business. The Islam nations are just going about their business too. Pakistan does not deserve the demonization either. There is something wrong about all this, don’t you think? Will you open your conscience? Will you listen? We are not here to make enemies. We are here to make friends. REAL FRIENDS. And REAL FRIENDS do not do this. They do not lie. They do not steal. They do not kill.
Ok, let us go deeper. You tout being a “Christian” nation. ALL RELIGIONS have a universal truth: THOU SHALT NOT KILL. How do you measure up? Putin calls this “medieval religious crusade”. It is! Aren’t we in the 21st Century now?! Why are we going backwards?
I must wait until my key partner, UN Security Council Special Envoy to the Arab Nations is fully recovered. I cannot speak because there are still people who will be put in harm’s way. For now, this is all we can do, and we hope it will wake you up and you help us share this TRUTH.
Thank you for listening with your hearts, whoever and wherever you are.
May humanity for once come together as ONE and stand up for REAL CHANGE. Change in our world starts from within. STAND. NO MORE SILENCE.

NOTE: To the people who wonder who I am and where I got my information, the only way for you to verify is you can ask the highest level executives and world leaders at the United Nations. My name is in the most highly classified papers. My UN mentor is a First Level Ambassador. It is the highest ranking ambassador and diplomat on the planet. His uncle was one of the founders of the United Nations. He was grooming me. I am very much an insider and these TRUTHS are being suppressed purposely. Many of the things I write are parts of the puzzles I’ve solved for the purpose of Defending Humanity.
