When is BP, the Obama Administration and the Main Stream Media going to get their heads out of the rabbit hole?  They can’t.  Not only is the hole is filled with black oil, deceit, distortion and outright lies. Alice in Wonderland, and all her little friends would be dead were the hole in the Gulf of Mexico.

Albert Einstein said, “After Hydrogen, Stupidity is the most common element in the Universe.”  He sure hit the nail on the head. 

Does the media, politicians and BP think Americans are stupid?  Yep, and there is a whole bunch of stupidity to go around, starting with the people who voted for Obama.  That aside, events at the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill are a mess.

In May, BP CEO Tony Hayward said the spill was “relatively tiny”,  and the environmental effects would be minimal.

Since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and sank April 20, BP has estimated 5,000 barrels of oil were flowing from the underwater well into the Gulf. Independent scientists believe the crude oil is spewing more like 95,000 barrels a day.

They have syphoned it, capped it, top killed it, sprayed the dispersal COREXIT at it, lit it on fire, junk shot it and in the last malady, capped it again claiming that their is no oil leaking. 

Paul “Red” Adair, the now deceased famous oil firefighter must be rolling in his grave at this epic madness.  Enter Pat Campell, Adairs’ colleague who has now been employed by BP to cap the well beneath the ruined Deepwater Horizon oil rig. 

These days, Campbell says that disaster relief has become a more collegiate affair. He also told The New York Times that helping BP cap Deepwater Horizon involves dealing with meddling managers and politicians. “Today things are done by committees. The executive management gets involved. They may or may not have any technical competence.” That can make things complicated, he said, but “it generally works out fine”. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/bp-brings-in-red-adairs-successor-to-stop-oil-leak-1982899.html

Well it sure has not worked out fine.  Matt Simmons says BP covering up MASSIVE HOLE miles away, and the cap test is “absurd.”

Back to the COREXIT for a minute.  

The Taiwanese super oil skimmer known as “A Whale” has been deemed ineffective by the US Coast Guard. It sucked up only negligible amounts of oil during its test run in the Gulf.  Maybe, just maybe it’s because the Corexit worked?  The EPA/FDA food tests say it is not showing up in fish, clams, oysters etc.

Surface dispersant used: more than 1.07 million gallons

Subsea dispersant used: more than 771,000 gallons http://www.bp.com/genericarticle.do?categoryId=9034409&contentId=7063771

Edward Overton, professor emeritus at Louisiana State University, talks about the potential environmental implications of the BP oil leak and the use of dispersants to help break up oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico. Overton speaks with Lizzie O’Leary on Bloomberg Television’s “InsideTrack.” with Video worth a look at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/video/2010/07/21/VI2010072102160.html

Overton claims that his findings are not showing low oxygen levels in the water.

In the meantime we’ve got a conspiracy, convinced that the spraying of COREXIT is for reasons other than “dispersing the oil” for the good of the planet. 

Monsanto … the company that helped bring Agent Orange into the world … Monsanto’s CFO, Carl Casale, is also a director at NALCO. Corexit is owned by NALCO, but really, by BP / Halliburton, somewhere in there. Incidentally, BP supplies a big portion of the fuel for America’s military, while Halliburton provides exclusive-multibillion-dollar-contract-style “logistical support” Good buddies, them! http://summerburkes.wordpress.com/2010/07/16/corexit-and-agent-orange-not-so-different-just-ask-monsanto/

Let us remind you from a previous article at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/dispersants-epa-stops-use-oil-spill/

Nalco Company received nearly two million dollars in government contracts this year alone. http://www.governmentcontractswon.com/department/defense/ondeo_nalco_company_004962403.asp?yr=09 

2009 37/$1,874,232

Thinking of Clint Eastwood in The Good, The Bad and the Ugly? Or maybe Jack Nicholson’s rant, “You can’t handle the truth.”

Is COREXIT Oil Dispersant Eating Through Boats in the Gulf?

Another of  The Deepwater Horizon disaster hearings was canceled today in New Orleans, LA after previous day’s testimony provides little insight.

Though the hearings are public, they aren’t entirely transparent. Much of the discussion involves documents that aren’t being released in real time. In addition, the proceedings are conducted largely in the language of the offshore oil industry, which to the uninitiated might as well be code. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/21/AR2010072102113.html

The coded message in a nutshell is that we are screwed, no matter the blame or malfeasance.

A blogger has noticed that the oil giant altered a photograph of its Houston crisis room, cutting and pasting three underwater images into a wall of video feeds from remotely operated undersea vehicles. The altered photo is displayed prominently on the company’s Web site.

Via WaPo- http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/19/AR2010071905256.html

John Aravosis pointed out the alterations Monday evening on his Americablog.com and observed, “I guess if you’re doing fake crisis response, you might as well fake a photo of the crisis response center.” The photo doctoring comes as BP has promised transparency in a bid to regain the public’s trust.

Now come on- stupid is as stupid does!

Nothing will stop the Obama agenda though.  With a moratorium on off shore drilling and now him pushing a no coal agenda, someone want to tell me how the U.S. is going to meet it’s power and fuel needs?

What is more toxic, the oil spill or President Obama politics?  

The real goal of “health care” legislation, the real goal of “cap-and-trade,” and the real goal of the “stimulus” is to rip the guts out of our private economy and transfer wide swaths of it over to the government to control. Do not be deluded by the propaganda. These initiatives are vehicles for change. They are not goals in and of themselves except in their ability to deliver power. They and will make matters much worse, for that is their design. http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/11/clowardpiven_government.html  

Is the real goal of President Obama’s lack of response to the oil spill more government reliance?  Is it an an excuse to shut down off shore oil drilling? As Rahm Emmanuel said, “A crisis is a terrible thing to waste.”
  

Former FEMA director Michael Brown is not backing off his charge that the Obama administration wants to use the Gulf Coast oil spill as a plot to put an end to offshore drilling.   “They want a crisis like this, so that they can use a crisis like this to shut down offshore and gas drilling,” he said Tuesday night on CNN’s “AC 360°.”    

The San Francisco Chronicle in January 2008. Obama told the Chronicle editorial board that he wanted cap-and-trade legislation to be as strong as possible.    

“So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted,” Obama told the board, after discussing the importance of figuring out how to use coal without emitting greenhouse gases. http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/05/05/brown.obama.oil.spill/index.html    

Having read every 1,168 pages of Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, it becomes more clear that her philosophical revolution of government takeover is pointing to real life.  “I trust that no one will tell me that men such as I write about don’t exists.  That this book has been written—and published—is my proof that they do,” wrote Rand in the “about the author,” section.  

Any Americans genuinely willing to shrug off the President, to abandon the pursuit of their professed values with the aid of this president’s resolve to solve our manifold problems — whether these Americans are conservative or liberal, secular or spiritual— believing Obama appears to have failed so completely to solve the litany of problems enumerated above in the generous twelve months allotted, might want to recall that he said we are all in this together;  that he said he would listen— that he is serious about relying on our ideas to forge the kind of changes— solutions to our problems— that we can believe in.    

So he didn’t pick your idea(s)?  Well then fuck’im. http://www.urantiansojourn.com/2010/01/obama-shrugged/    

 
We’re all in this together all right!.  He didn’t pick your idea(s)?  Listen, we’re getting frigged alright.  We’ve got the Constitutional President you voted for, who so far has operated one of the least transparent governments in recent history.

In the five years before the Deepwater Horizon exploded, federal investigators documented nearly 200 safety and environmental violations in accidents on platforms and rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, describing a stunning array of hazards that resulted in few penalties. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/business/deepwaterhorizon/7039960.html    

 
The Deepwater Horizon isn’t the only oil leaking into the Gulf of Mexico.  For the last for the last six years another underwater platform has been leaking– 

Site owner Taylor Energy Co. LLC said in a written statement that a production platform about 70 miles southwest of the Deepwater Horizon disaster was collapsed during Hurricane Ivan in 2004 by an underwater mudslide.  

Pictures taken by an aerial photographer over the weekend and posted on the Internet suggested that oil was leaking from the drilling rig Ocean Saratoga, owned by Diamond Offshore Inc., and that a nearby vessel with a hose overboard was applying dispersant. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5jX-xmAeoWhfq-yms3nI-eGi8-FuAD9G7C9JO3  

 
It is not a new leak, just some dome adjustments to an old leak? A leak that no one was following?  A leak that has Taylor Energy denying reports that its Ocean Saratoga rig was leaking oil the Gulf of Mexico.  Instead, “Taylor is draining a subsea containment dome near the Ocean Saratoga.” http://blogs.barrons.com/stockstowatchtoday/2010/06/09/diamond-offshore-rebounds-no-2nd-gulf-spill/ 

A leaking drain?  Oh please.  A rose by another other name…(Shakespeare)

Atlas Shrugged wrote about the locomotive, copper and steel that the government took control of, eventually running the companies out of business.  In real life, it is the coal and oil industry that Obama may put out of business or become government owned. It already owns banks and automobile companies.

Under President Barack Obama, the EPA has adopted a policy designed to curtail surface mining by sharply reducing mountaintop removal in six states…The Environmental Protection Agency’s plan to revoke a crucial permit for West Virginia’s largest mountaintop removal mine, with pro-industry forces accusing the agency of an illegal power grab and political machinations.

The impact of a cease and desist on off shore drilling and investigations may put BP into bankruptcy.  Who will pay for the clean-up and compensation then?  You and me of course.  Pushing my bullshit button, “Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is reassuring Congress that the Obama administration has pressed what he described as the “pause button, not the stop button,” on all offshore oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and elsewhere.”  http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5jovg2Mk3tRYlNd4p-7zl44-h1fWQD9G7Q2HO1 

Goldman Sachs analysts cut their view on the deepwater drillers to neutral specifically, the firm downgraded Diamond Offshore, Atwood Oceanics Inc., Noble Corp. and Transocean Ltd. No stock value means no one drills for oil and we either import it or go without to meet the nation’s energy needs.

The heartkeepercommonroom blog had this to say: 

And here’s the thing- conspiracy theory or not, it really doesn’t matter. Cloward-Pliven put together a recipe they believed would lead to the collapse of this government to make it possible to replace it with socialism.    

They wanted to end free market capitalism. Effectively, the stranglehold of regulation, the result of cronyism in government, the insidious relationship between lobbyists, politicians, and leftwing groups (which, no coincidence, favor Cloward-Pliven leftwing politics) such as PIRG and Public Citizen has effectively created a government which regulates free markets and small entrepreneurs out of existence.They wanted to increase the public’s dependency on the government sector. Can anybody argue with a straight face and uncrossed fingers that this has not happened?    

It doesn’t really matter so much whether this is being done deliberately by people who know what they are doing, by duped useful idiots whose strings are being pulled behind the scenes by some malevolent forces of evil, or through mere incompetence. The results are what they are, the same in every case. <a href="http://heartkeepercommonroom.blogspot.com/2010/06/conspiracy-theory-or-incompentence.html&quot;

CAN the results be different if you figure out who is John Galt for yourself?  

The insidious result is that America needs oil and energy, and we have a President who claims to be responsible, while pointing fingers at everyone else.
