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.

airforce21

5-headup.

Really, what the f#*& could our commander and chief thinking to allow an Air Force One Boeing Jet to fly over NYC for a supposed photo op?  Talk about audacity.  Has he got his head completely stuck up his ass?

The plane looks like it is on maneuvers rather than a sightseeing mission. C’mon conspiracy theorists!  It resembled Air Force One on a “pre-planned” military flight taking photos of the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

No wonder people panicked and evacuated buildings with terrorism still on the minds of many, post 911 and in the midst of Swine Flu Outbreaks with no cause. 

Apparently everything was coordinated with the FAA and other agencies but no one notified the tourists or the folks that work in the sky scrapers that had a birds eye view of the plane.  “People came pouring out of the buildings, the American Express Building, all the buildings in the financial district by the water.” http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=ff5_1240852075

Could you blame anyone for taking a dive for cover after 911’s fiasco?  Had those thousands of people taken off running instead of sitting there listening to reports from officials that the building was safe on 911, they might still be alive.  Watching an unidentified  jumbo jet pitching and and banking at 45 degree angles back and forth over the city and out your window- all the while being chased by close flying fighter jets ought to scare the hell out of anyone. 

I want to see the Godd&%ned pictures that were worth terrorizing NYC and America yet again.  The NY Times said: The mission on Monday, officials said, was set up to create an iconic shot of Air Force One, similar to one that was taken in recent years over the Grand Canyon. 

Kiss my tax paying ass to pay the $50,000 an a hour tab it take to fly the damned thing.  Lord knows what it costs for an F-16.  I wonder if it will be the White House Christmas/Kwanzaa Card?

If this act doesn’t prove the audacity of President Obama, nothing will.  The Statue of Liberty cried for the second time in her life.   Could no one in the entire government: The Pentagon, NYPD, The Department of Defense, Homeland Security, or any other taxpayer supported Federal Agency manage to PhotoShop a plane in front of the Statue of Liberty?  Give me a freaking break.

MEMORANDUM FOR ADDRESSEES

FROM: FAA Air Traffic System Operations Security (AJR-2)

SUBJECT: Flight Notification- New York City -Statue of Liberty Photo Op, Upper New York Bay / Newark Bay on April 27, 2009, 10:00L. (amended 4/23)

The information in this document is considered FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY, and should only be shared with persons with a need to know. Information in this document shall not be released to the public or media.

1. The Department of Defense (DOD), in coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), will conduct a flying photo op in the New York City Area on April 27, 2009 involving a transport and fighter aircraft. Below are the details regarding the operation.

• Date: Monday April 27, 2009 (Primary), April 28 or April 30 (weather backup dates)
• Number / Type Aircraft: 1 VC-25 and 2 F-16s. Actual photo op will only have VC25 and 1 F16.
• Callsign: VENUS01
• Departure point: ADW
• Arrival point: ADW
• Flight Plan: Crews will file two separate IFR flight plans:
ADW-JFK: KADW.. PALEO V44 SIE CAMRN4 JFK
Requested altitude FL190B210
EWR-ADW: KEWR..EWR7.BIGGY J75 MXE V378 BAL KADW

• Planned Departure Time: 0930 approximately
• Planned Time On Photo Op Location: 10:00 -10:30L.
• Planned Photo Op Altitude: 1000-1500ft
• Number of Passes: 2, possibly 3

The aircraft will depart ADW via IFR clearance as a three (3) ship formation to Sea Isle (SIE). At SIE one (1) of the fighters will leave the flight and return to ADW IFR via SIE ATR V308 BILIT ADW.

The VC25 and 1 F16 will proceed IFR to CAMRN intersection south of JFK. In the vicinity of CAMRN intersection the aircraft will cancel IFR and proceed VFR with New York TRACON (N90) towards the Verranzano Bridge. N90 will hand the aircraft off to Newark Tower (EWR) for the flight in the Upper NY and Newark Bay. Upon completion of the final pass the aircraft will be treated as a EWR departure and pickup an IFR clearance back to ADW.

The photo op portion of the flight will be VFR in accordance with the specified ground track as per the attached map (Attachment 1). On the northbound flight segments the fighter aircraft will be offset to the east by approximately ½ mile. During the southbound flight segment the fighter will re-position to remain offset to the aircraft within the depicted box.

The operation will be monitored by FAA Air Traffic Security Coordinators (ATSC) at the Domestic Event Network at FAA Headquarters from start to finish. Any questions or issues can be directed to the FAA ATSC at the DEN. The FAA ATSC can be reached at (202) 493-5107.

The Public Affairs posture for this effort is passive. No media or press releases are planned. Please direct all media inquiries to the FAA Air Traffic Security Coordinator at (202) 493-5107. Due to the possibility of public concern regarding DOD aircraft flying at low levels, coordination with Federal, State and Local law enforcement agencies, emergency operations centers and aviation units has been accomplished.
