Alcohol Prohibition removed competition for Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company

Whereas, our commercial media is for sale to the highest bidder.

Whereas, the US federal education recommendations are based on corporate points of view.

The story of the Prohibition of alcohol between the years of 1920 and 1933 is:

Wikipedia : In the United States, the term Prohibition refers to the period from 1920 to 1933, during which the sale, manufacture, and transportation of alcohol for consumption were banned nationally as mandated in the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Prohibition of alcohol can also refer to the antecedent religious and political temperance movements calling for sumptuary laws to end or encumber alcohol use.[1]

Following significant pressure on lawmakers as a result of the temperance movement, the United States Senate passed the Eighteenth Amendment on December 18, 1917. The “Volstead Act,” the popular name for the National Prohibition Act, passed Congress over President Woodrow Wilson‘s veto on October 28, 1919 and established the legal definition of intoxicating liquor[2] as well as providing for enforcement of Prohibition. The 18th Amendment was certified as ratified on January 29, 1919, having been approved by 36 states, and went into effect on a Federal level on January 29, 1920. Some state legislatures had already enacted statewide prohibition prior to the ratification of the Eighteenth Amendment.

As Prohibition became increasingly unpopular during the Great Depression, especially in large cities, repeal was eagerly anticipated. On March 23, 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt signed into law an amendment to the Volstead Act known as the Cullen-Harrison Act, allowing the manufacture and sale of certain kinds of alcoholic beverages. The Eighteenth Amendment was repealed with ratification of the Twenty-first Amendment, on December 5, 1933.

A different reason has come to light recently and makes MUCH more sense.

You see, during the 1920’s America was roaring forward with easy credit.  Everyone seemed to be a winner.

As roads were being cut across the country side, automobile sales exploded.  This is great for the Ford Motor Company, but what was not written into your government approved history book is that our ingenious and inventive grandparents were running their new cars on uncle Erny’s moonshine. Ask you friendly mechanic.  It is not difficult to get a car engine to run on alcohol.

This situation was dire indeed to Mr. Rockefeller and his Standard Oil Company.  They had just discovered (1911) a massive oil field in Drumright, Oklahoma and needed someone to buy all this black gold…

Homemade auto fuel had to be eliminated.  As was typical of the time, they hired the public relations (PR man) psychologist and the commercial media to create a public outcry against alcohol consumption and public drunkenness.  They passed the 18th amendment and immediately sent the FBI out into the countryside to destroy all major distilling operations.

At the same time, Standard Oil began construction of “gas stations” all around the country.

By 1933 the boom 20’s had turned to the “Great depression”, the PR guys changed their message and proded the people to demand their alcohol back, so Roosevelt repealed the 18th amendment for “certain types” of alcohol, with tariffs of coarse.

This government program gave Standard Oil 13 years without competition in the auto fuel market.  They used it well by building the infrastructure to dominate energy policies up to present time.

Now you know, please pass this on.
