GULF OF MEXICO OIL SPILL AND AFFECTED COASTLINE CLOSED

The media blackout continues.  The airspace over the coastal waters around the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill have been closed by the FAA. 

Pursuant to 14 CFR section 91.137(a)(1) temporary flight restrictions are in effect for deepwater horizon/mississippi canyon (mc252) incident cleanup and reconstitution operations…All aircraft operations are prohibited except those flights authorized by ATC, routine flights supporting offshore oil operations; federal, state, local and military flight operations supporting oil spill recovery and reconstitution efforts; and air medical and law enforcement operations. http://tfr.faa.gov/save_pages/detail_0_5100.html 

The closing of airspace does occur from time to time for everything from a military air show, to the arrival of a VIP.  Other recent airspace closures can be found at http://tfr.faa.gov/tfr2/list.html.  Most recently, much of Europe airspace was closed and blamed on the often invisible ash cloud from the Iceland Volcano.  We saw airspace closed in the entire U.S. immediately after the events of 9-11.

So why close the airspace over an oil spill? 

We know the oil spill is huge, and we know that BP and the AirForce is spraying COREXIT, the dispersant.  The release says, “For additional information on air operations within the deepwater horizon TFR see website: https://1afnorth.Region1.Ang.Af.Mil/deepwater_spill/default.Aspx This link is a military site that offers no public access.  So much for taking a little plane ride over the area.

https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/24/bp-tells-epa-to-shove-it-oil-spill-cleanup/ we noted that the EPA had asked BP to find an alternative to COREXIT after nearly a month of aerial spraying.

April 30, 2010. WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Air Force planes have been sent to Mississippi and were awaiting orders to start dumping chemicals on the oil spill threatening the coast, as the government worked Friday to determine how large a role the military should play in the cleanup.

The C-130 Hercules cargo planes, specially designed for aerial spraying, were sent Thursday from the Youngstown Air Reserve Station in Ohio, said a spokesman there, Master Sgt. Bob Barko Jr. http://www.chem.info/News/2010/04/Environmental-Controls-Air-Force-Ready-to-Spray-Oil-Spill/

While we no longer have Posse Comitatus anymore with active U.S. Military Troops on U.S. soil, we now have BP hiring private security contractors to protect the oil spill, cleanup efforts and keep onlookers away.

In this video, the security firms name was revealed as Talon Security..  http://www.talonprivatesecurity.com/ They appear to be wearing sidearms and flack jackets.
 
 
“This wouldn’t be the first time a private security firm made an appearance in a Gulf disaster,” Wired’s Adam Rawnsley writes. “When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, the Department of Homeland Security and a number of private firms, fearful of reported widespread violence and chaos, turned to private security contractors like Blackwater and ArmorGroup International to protect their property.” via http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2010/06/bp-hires-mercs-to-block-oily-beaches/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
Even Anderson Cooper of CNN,  was warned by FEDERAL WILDLIFE OFFICIALS to avoid doing a bird clean up interview and when pursuing images of the clean up area, was denied access by a NATIONAL GUARD Troops. 
 
 
Now we have the National Guard, The FAA, and private contractors all denying access.  Who and what authorizes BP, and a mercenary security firm like Talon Security to have the right to provide security in the Gulf in the first place?  Should privatized corporate law enforcement be a surprise. 
 
Representative Gene Taylor (D-MS 4th) an 11th term Democrat from Mississippi, in a letter to President Obama asks:
 
05.01.10
Coincidence
The BP oil fire is projected to cause severe damage to four shoreline states. Cause? Was it an accident?  Possible sabotage? Other?…Re: Recent BP fire – result oil spill 2010.
Should the federal government demand and regulate all oil employees who work on the oil rigs?  Should the federal government provide security on and around oil production rigs? It is my opinion that leasing oil production companies do not have the capacity to provide U.S. security. http://www.congress.org/congressorg/bio/userletter/?id=348&letter_id=5130467066
 
On May 5th, 2010, “Taylor flew over the spill in a Coast Guard plane on Saturday and said it was “not as bad” in an interview with a Biloxi TV station. He also said the slick looked like “chocolate milk” and appeared to be “breaking up naturally.”  http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/96217-wicker-defends-rep-taylors-bp-oil-spill-analogy-to-chocolate-milk
Chocolate milk does not require the coast guard, AirForce, private security personnel and closed airspace.  Relying only on BP data is BS.  BP appears to have control over Nat’l Incident Mngt Systems data.

What this means to the non-GIS layperson:

1) The current configuration and process allow BP to limit or slow down the flow of information about the extent of the disaster to the government, the public and law enforcement, which I believe is against the spirit and letter of NIMS*.

2) The current process allows BP to treat GIS datasets as proprietary information. It is my understanding that public agencies, like The US Fish and Wildlife Service and The Louisiana National Guard, are literally submitting the only copy of agency field data directly to a BP GIS server behind the corporate firewall. Examples of these data are; dead bird and fish locations with photos, boom deployment and engineered construction, dates, along with other descriptive information and photos.

3) The GIS information is essential to the recovery of public resources, and some data belongs to US taxpayers, not BP. BP is paying for the hardware and collection of these GIS datasets, yet it is my understanding that the data belong to the people of the United States. BP must not be allowed to protect these data as if they were a proprietary product.

4) State Emergency Operation Center staff, Parish EOC staff, and other Emergency Responders and Recovery Specialists do not have access to these GIS datasets, contrary to all NIMS guidance, protocols and principles. The effort to slow down the flow of information is at the expense of the containment and cleanup effort of the responders and is in our opinion, suspect behavior by BP.

5) The Federal On Scene Coordinator at ICP Houma, US Coast Guard Captain Ed Stanton, standing with USCG Rear Admiral James Watson, approved the National Incident Management System (NIMS) compliant design, and ordered the first database and server. That server was received by BP, and placed behind the BP firewall.

Conclusion–At the very least, per NIMS, there must be redundancy of GIS information managed jointly, and fully accessible to both the FOSC and the SOSC. Technology allows implementation of this design to occur instantaneously and automatically. http://www.theoildrum.com/node/6593

According to the European financial database Amadeus, JPMorgan Chase is the No. 1 holder of stock in BP. That distinction also has earned the Wall Street bank the title of “Global Ultimate Owner” of the oil giant, as it owns 28.34% of BP.  Let us remind you, JPMorgan got $25 BILLION in bailout money. http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/12/22/bailout.accountability/index.html
 
President Barack Obama declared war on the Gulf Oil spill in his first nationally televised address from the Oval Office.  Obama wagged a finger in emphasis and insisted that oil giant BP will pay for the extensive environmental and the economic damage to the Gulf region. Duration: :01:32.
 
 
Who’s really going to pay?  Follow the money all the way back to you and me.

Volcanic Ash Predition, U.S.A.?

Iceland’s Volcanic Ash Dust Cloud Heading to North America, is Martial Law Coming With it?

The volcanic ash cloud forecast from eruptions from the Eyjafjallajokull glacier looks to have the ash cloud heading toward the eastern part of Canada and perhaps the eastern coast of the U.S.A. depending on weather patterns.  “Another setback came on Monday evening for millions of stranded passengers as Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano sent a fresh cloud of ash 15,000 feet into the air. Amid travel concerns, some flights resumed on Tuesday.” http://www.accuweather.com/blogs/news/story/30555/amid-worsening-ash-cloud-situa.asp

If the volcano’ s dust reaches the U.S. can you imagine the chaos of closed airspace?

The Royal Navy was dispatched in the U.K to help stranded passengers, even as Fox is reporting that the Brits are re-opening some airspace.  You can follow some of the planes in real time here http://www.radarvirtuel.com/.  This seems a pretty stupid idea to give terrorists just one more tool to track airspace, none-the-less there it is- and here’s just one example of one flight that made it safely with all data for the world to see-

Flight Number : KLM643
Company : KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
ICAO Hex Code : 484174
Reg Code : PH-BFW
Model : Boeing – B747-406 (M)
Departure : AMS – Amsterdam, Schiphol – Netherlands
Arrival : JFK – New York, John F. Kennedy International – USA


Last Message : 18:34:47 UTC
Latitude : 51.77298
Longitude : 4.3618
Altitude : 6454 m – 21175 ft
Ground Speed : 851 km/h – 529 mph – 460 knots
Vertical Speed : 624 m/min – 2047 ft/min (CLIMB)
Squawk : 2114
Heading : 190º

 

Really does, anyone outside of air traffic need to know the exact location of a plane?  Hell, why not publish the passenger manifest list while you are at it? Jerks.  Taking it one farther is http://www.libhomeradar.org/ where not only can you track, but see photos and get specs on planes.

libhomeradar

easy collect aircraft information

libhomeradar is a library written in plain C which makes the communication with the Kinetic Avionic SBS-1 box and the AirNav Systems RadarBox very easy. 

In the U.S.A. we have  http://flightaware.com/live/ currently-  

Tracking 3,451 airborne aircraft with 107,533,877 total flights in the database.
FlightAware has tracked 45,374 arrivals in the last 24 hours.

You can also text to: “GOOGLE” then, type in the call sign of the aircraft you are looking for. “UAL472” for example or track all active flights on Google Earth at http://fboweb.com/antest/ge/geALLFLIGHTS.kmz.

Whoa.  That’s just wrong for air traffic safety.  Has Obama nominated anyone to head up the Federal Aviation Administration yet? http://www.faa.gov/ It looks like lobbyist J. Randolph Babbitt is up for the job. http://www.capecodtoday.com/blogs/index.php/2009/04/18/alliance-lobbyist-named-to-head-the-faa?blog=109

Implications of closing U.S. airspace would go far up to food chain and well into Homeland Security.  Would President Obama dispatch all those military personnel already on active duty on U.S. Soil, which is already a clear violation of  the Constitution?  Recall, the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce Defense Directive 1404.10 (read  PDF ) promises exactly what President Obama said, “”We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/06/25/martial-law-under-public-health-emergency/

On April 13, 2010 The Conservative Examiner wrote:

In October of this year, one month prior to the November midterm elections, a special army unit known as ‘Consequence Management Response Force’ will be ready for deployment on American soil if so ordered by the President.

The special force, which is the new name being given to the 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry, has been training at Fort Stewart, Georgia and is composed of 80,000 troops.

According to the Army Times,

They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.The key phrase is ‘may be called upon to help with civil unrest.’  http://www.examiner.com/x-37620-Conservative-Examiner~y2010m4d13-Special-army-unit-ready-to-be-deployed-on-American-soil-just-before-Nov-elections

You can follow the 3rd brigade on twitter or facebook from http://www.stewart.army.mil/units/1BCT/home.asp

Besides the ‘Consequence Management Response Force’ capability, putting on a legitimate face to XE, Blackwater, or The American Police Force does not preclude them from being a militia capable of effectively supporting state and federal emergency response units. Federal response units—can you say FEMA? More on the American police here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/02/american-police-force-national-force-aim/.

Americans, by and large are civil peaceful beings- but being told that airspace is being restricted or closed due to an invisible ash cloud, well that might just put the loonies over the edge.   

Would governors declare states of emergency calling out the national guard?  Ah, but the The John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007  later repealed by the Insurrection Act gives the President the ability to declare a public emergency and station the military anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities.  You may recall no one has rescinded the state of emergency from the false H1N1 pandemic.

When it snowed in D.C., the government for all intents and purposes shut down- would it again if the ash cloud is so prominent that it inhibits air travel and is caustic to breath?  As if we don’t already have enough fluoride and silica in our diets.  And, too much salt as so the nanny government, besides owning banks and car manufacturers is going to work with the food industry to gradually reduce sodium in everything from soup to nuts http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2010/04/20/US-planning-to-reduce-salt-in-food/UPI-37521271766209/  That’s what I call nutty!

At least Europe has some alternative transportation options by ferry or train, not so much in the States.  “Washington – including the president – is stalling on critical legislation that maps the way for getting people and goods from here to there: the transportation bill. The bill sets policy on roads, bridges, mass transit, and freight movement for six years. It was supposed to be reauthorized last year, but the White House discouraged that because it wanted to focus on health-care legislation.http://www.csmonitor.com/Commentary/the-monitors-view/2010/0419/Iceland-volcano-ash-cloud-At-least-Europe-has-a-backup-in-trains-ferries-buses

The BBC reports that there is ‘zero tolerance’ on ash. ” ‘No tolerance’ rule for volcanic ash” http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8629609.stm Is there a tolerance level in Canada or the U.S.?  At least Iceland and Europe can rely on, ” The Nuclear Accident Model (NAME) was originally developed after the nuclear accident in 1986 at Chernobyl, which highlighted the need for a capability to predict the spread and deposition of radioactive material released into the atmosphere. The model has continued to be developed and is now applied to a wide range of atmospheric pollution problems, ranging from emergency responses to daily air-quality forecasts. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/04/19/ash-cloud-models-overrated-a-word-on-post-normal-science-by-dr-jerome-ravetz/

After the Haiti quake, the U.S.S. Comfort arrived, along with 10,000 U.S. Military personnel to offer a a peaceful restoration.  But, “As the U.S. military’s mission in Haiti draws to a close, about 1 million Haitians remain homeless, said the former top U.S. military commander in Haiti…The roughly 2,200 troops now in Haiti are expected to leave in June”  http://www.stripes.com/article.asp?section=104&article=69459

What’s the big rush to get our troops out of Haiti so fast? 

And, “The top military official in Iraq said the president plan for troop withdrawal is proceeding as scheduled.
 The Associated Press reports that Gen. Ray Odierno confirms that 45,000 soldiers will have left Iraq by the end of August unless a dramatic security concern arises in the area.”  http://www.s2smagazine.com/node/2792

There are 1,084,548 troops on active duty in the United States and its territories according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deployments_of_the_United_States_Military Ironically we have no troops in Iceland as The Keflavik Naval Air Station was closed.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/03/16/AR2006031601846.html

Eyjafjallajokull volcano 20th of April 2010, am

“It is just skirting into the Newfoundland area over the next 12 to 18 hours,” Syvret told Reuters. “It doesn’t look as if it is going to get much further west than that, just on the coast and a little further inland.”  Newfoundland, on Canada’s Atlantic seaboard, is the closest part of North America to Iceland’s erupting Eyjafjallajokull volcano.http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE63I5OR20100419?loomia_ow=t0:s0:a49:g43:r1:c0.248206:b33070260:z0

It is unlikely that America will be thrown into chaos over this ash cloud. What catastrophe befalls us next is any one’s guess.  Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Nuclear Attack, Anthrax, Biological Weapons, an invasion by foreign troops or aliens? 

With a million troops awaiting action, in the meantime the least they could do is patrol the borders.

You can still watch the eruption through the clouds on both the Vodafon and Mila.is webcams. Vodaphon updates every 6 seconds. Also photos in ten minute increments at http://picasaweb.google.com/102175391233488315229.

american police force

BILLINGS, Mont. —AP-http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5ifOx0LPKy5B_0KAyPHyNTEqdQz6QD9AM0VM80  The Two Rivers Detention Center was promoted as the largest economic development project in decades in the small town of Hardin when the jail was built two years ago. But it has been vacant ever since.”

There were no takers on the facility until recently when a company called the American Police Force signed a lease. “Problem is, no one’s heard of them, yet they’ve got tons of cash and guns with them and the Sheriff’s Department will cease to have jurisdiction as of the end of this October.” http://www.the-912-project.com/2009/09/30/heads-up-mt-you-are-the-front-line-against-american-security-force/

State legislatures have granted police powers to private licensed security firms for decades so that’s not so new, but I got to thinking about President Obama’s new law for Civilian National Security Force http://giveusliberty1776.blogspot.com/2009/09/hr-675-civilian-national-security-force.html ,http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h675/text .  Is the American Police Force is just a front for Blackwater?  http://www.americanpoliceforce.net/ and Alex Jones at  http://www.prisonplanet.com/exposed-american-police-force-is-a-blackwater-front-group.html  offer proof that APF is in fact a Blackwater Front Group. 

Xe Services, LLC
PO Box 1029
Moyock, NC 27958

Xe Services LLC is the new name of Blackwater USA. In addition, the U.S. Training Center contact page carries the exact same address.

PO Box 1029
Moyock, NC 27958

A domain registry check confirms that the U.S. Training Center website is registered to XE Services.  Pretty compelling proof  Mr. Jones!

From the http://www.americanpolicegroup.com/ web site:
American Police Force, dedicated security agency…extensive global network to provide local, regional, and national security solutions to the United States Government…services include highly sophisticated background checks, asset searches, undercover investigations both domestic & international, … Covers the equipment, operations, and individual combat skills essential for soldiers and others who must act as infantry. (emphasis mine) Essential for Army infantry leaders at the platoon and company level, Special Forces troops, Air Force security and patrol services, Marines, and other Army branches.

Would that include assisting Armed forces including the National Guard since a pandemic emergency as was declared over the H1N1 Swine Flu? 

The U.S. Training Center is run by Blackwater. Indeed, The U.S. Training Center website, can be accessed via Blackwater’s forwarding URL at http://www.blackwaterusa.com/ aka. http://www.ustraining.com/new/index.asp.

According to  The New York Times  http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/14/us/14blackwater.html?_r=1, RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Blackwater Worldwide is abandoning the brand name that has been tarnished by its work in Iraq, settling on Xe (pronounced zee) as the new name for its family of two dozen businesses. Blackwater Lodge and Training Center, the subsidiary that conducts much of the company’s overseas operations and domestic training, has been renamed U.S. Training Center Inc., the company said Friday.

Xe or Zee, http://www.xecompany.com/ has a much improved and less aggressive image no longer showing Men In Black holding AK-47’s Mercenaries, but make no mistake, as the site says, “Man-made and natural disasters require an immediate robust response. The USTC and staff of former military and law enforcement professionals can provide the needed training and operational expertise to prepare security teams to effectively support state and federal emergency response units.” -emphasis mine.

Federal response units—can you say FEMA?

Excerpts from the site- Xe is supported by its own construction capability. With a team of electricians, plumbers, engineers….transport resources, including its own in-house travel agency, design and construction teams can be mobilized quickly and efficiently to where their services are needed within the United States….Xe is equipped and prepared to move cargo and people from anywhere in the world….offers an array of capabilities to transport freight and personnel…..outfitted with armored vehicles for safe transport and delivery…

For all intents and purposes we have an organization that exists on U.S. Soil with the capability and know how to wage war on American citizens.  The U.S. government contracted with them in Iraq and Afghanistan, why not here in America to quell the the citizen who seek transparency from The Obama Administration? 

Why would the U.S. Government allow this?  Putting on a legitimate face does not preclude XE, Blackwater, or The American Police Force from being a militia.  Could say China, Russia or anyone of a number of countries with enough money, hire them to carry out these tasks upon America?  While anti-government sentiment is on the rise with peaceful tea party gatherings, the rest of the world does not look to have a party, but would love to over throw the U.S.A.  Even the UN has stated that the U.S. dollar should no longer be the basket currency for the world. 

Rand police 

Now comes research described in this report, sponsored by the United States Army and conducted by the RAND Arroyo Center.-  The authors for a Stability Police Force (SPF) “containing 6,000 people — created in the U.S. Marshals Service and staffed by a “hybrid option,” in which SPF members are federal police officers seconded to federal, state, and local police agencies when not deployed.”  The pdf can be downloaded here http://chriskillz503.blogspot.com/2009/10/apf-mercs-are-fullfilling-rand.html

Last October 2008, According to reports out of top Chinese mainstream news outlets, the RAND Corporation also presented a proposal to the Pentagon lobbying  for a war to be started with a major foreign power in an attempt to stimulate the American economy and prevent a recession. 

RAND Lobbies Pentagon: Start War To Save U.S. Economy 301008top3

 sourced at – http://www.prisonplanet.com/rand-lobbies-pentagon-start-war-to-save-us-economy.html

RAND directors include Frank Charles Carlucci III, former Defense Secretary and Deputy Director of the CIA, Ronald L. Olson, Council on Foreign Relations luminary and former Secretary of Labor, and Carl Bildt, top Bilderberg member and other notables who purport to honor, serve America.

Putting on a legitimate face does not preclude XE, Blackwater, or The American Police Force from being a militia.
