As the oil spews, the conspiracy and bull$hit is rising to the top.     

BP said its spent $300 million on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill response effort in the past three days, hitting the $100 million-per-day spend rate for the first time and bringing its total bill to $2.65 billion so far. via Reuters http://news.cnet.com/8301-11128_3-20008984-54.html?part=rss&subj=news&tag=2547-1_3-0-20.  BP is about as transparent as the Obama administration.     

The Treasury Department’s pay czar overseeing executive pay at firms that received government bailouts, including three-Michigan based automakers and finance companies, will step down this summer, the department said Wednesday.  Kenneth Feinberg, the special master overseeing executive pay for the top 100 paid executives at General Motors Co., Chrysler Group LLC, Ally Financial Inc. and AIG, was named to oversee the $20 billion BP fund to compensate victims of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. He will focus on that job full-time after he leaves his current role.  From The Detroit News: http://www.detnews.com/article/20100623/AUTO01/6230443/1361/Official-overseeing-GM–Chrysler-executive-pay-to-step-down#ixzz0sA7eKuTU     

Special master and Czar Feinberg, approved $9 million in compensation for GM chairman and CEO Edward Whitacre, Jr. , including $1.7 million in cash.  I highly doubt we’ll be seeing such sizable checks coming from BP.      

He gave an interview with Neil Cavuto saying:     

FEINBERG: I’m working independently. Both the Obama administration and BP decided together that I should create an independent claims facility. The entire cost of the facility — the entire costs associated with me, my staff, are funded entirely by BP. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,595089,00.html     

I wonder what BP is paying him?    Just how is it independent when he is still getting a check on our tax dollars and one from BP, I presume?

 The blog the Twelfth Bough  http://twelfthbough.blogspot.com/2010/06/justifying-corexit.html reviews a lot of evidence that points toward a giant conspiracy,,,     

…the theory that this spill is a manufactured event designed to pollute the environment with Corexit, in order to cause a population die-off of “undesirables” around the Gulf, on the coasts of Texas, Louisiana and Florida.     

…Instead of thinking of it as Illuminati, think Sabbatean. The elements that ties things together include 1) secrecy and lying about identities, 2) an occult, mystical philosophy guided by the Talmud, the Cabala, and the Zohar, 3) the desire for revenge, control and power, and 4) the use of sacrifices, holocausts and scapegoats     

…Gulf blowout as a staged act just like the moon landings from 1969 to 1972…is that the blowout must involve asphalt, not crude oil, because asphalt, in the form of tar balls, is washing up on beaches. But spilled crude quickly evaporates and leaves behind its heavy fraction, and voilà, you have asphalt. This always happens when crude oil is spilled in the sea.     

 

Federal land grab by A. HUNTER for The Washington Times.

What is not a conspiracy is that the United States has enough oil on it’s own soil that BP and other drilling companies do not need to be drilling in the oceans in the first place.      

“USGS provides science for a changing world.”  How that for a slogan?  They also provided data in 2008 on just how much oil is in them there hills in this report from 2008. http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1911     

Reston, VA – North Dakota and Montana have an estimated 3.0 to 4.3 billion barrels of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil in an area known as the Bakken Formation.   A U.S. Geological Survey assessment, released April 10, shows a 25-fold increase in the amount of oil that can be recovered compared to the agency’s 1995 estimate of 151 million barrels of oil.     

Technically recoverable oil resources are those producible using currently available technology and industry practices. USGS is the only provider of publicly available estimates of undiscovered technically recoverable oil and gas resources.     

New geologic models applied to the Bakken Formation, advances in drilling and production technologies, and recent oil discoveries have resulted in these substantially larger technically recoverable oil volumes. About 105 million barrels of oil were produced from the Bakken Formation by the end of 2007.     

The USGS Bakken study was undertaken as part of a nationwide project assessing domestic petroleum basins using standardized methodology and protocol as required by the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 2000.     

The Bakken Formation estimate is larger than all other current USGS oil assessments of the lower 48 states and is the largest “continuous” oil accumulation ever assessed by the USGS. A “continuous” oil accumulation means that the oil resource is dispersed throughout a geologic formation rather than existing as discrete, localized occurrences. The next largest “continuous” oil accumulation in the U.S. is in the Austin Chalk of Texas and Louisiana, with an undiscovered estimate of 1.0 billions of barrels of technically recoverable oil.     

“It is clear that the Bakken formation contains a significant amount of oil – the question is how much of that oil is recoverable using today’s technology?” said Senator Byron Dorgan, of North Dakota. “To get an answer to this important question, I requested that the U.S. Geological Survey complete this study, which will provide an up-to-date estimate on the amount of technically recoverable oil resources in the Bakken Shale formation.”     

The USGS estimate of 3.0 to 4.3 billion barrels of technically recoverable oil has a mean value of 3.65 billion barrels. Scientists conducted detailed studies in stratigraphy and structural geology and the modeling of petroleum geochemistry. They also combined their findings with historical exploration and production analyses to determine the undiscovered, technically recoverable oil estimates.     

USGS worked with the North Dakota Geological Survey, a number of petroleum industry companies and independents, universities and other experts to develop a geological understanding of the Bakken Formation. These groups provided critical information and feedback on geological and engineering concepts important to building the geologic and production models used in the assessment.     

Five continuous assessment units (AU) were identified and assessed in the Bakken Formation of North Dakota and Montana – the Elm Coulee-Billings Nose AU, the Central Basin-Poplar Dome AU, the Nesson-Little Knife Structural AU, the Eastern Expulsion Threshold AU, and the Northwest Expulsion Threshold AU.     

At the time of the assessment, a limited number of wells have produced oil from three of the assessments units in Central Basin-Poplar Dome, Eastern Expulsion Threshold, and Northwest Expulsion Threshold.

The Elm Coulee oil field in Montana, discovered in 2000, has produced about 65 million barrels of the 105 million barrels of oil recovered from the Bakken Formation. Results of the assessment can be found at http://energy.usgs.gov.     

From a recent email on the issue:     

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable… at $107 a barrel, we’re looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.  “When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.” says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature’s financial analyst.     

“This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years,” reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.  It’s a formation known as the  Williston   Basin , but is more commonly referred to as the ‘Bakken.’  It stretches from Northern Montana, through  North Dakota and into  Canada ..  For years,  U. S.  oil exploration has been considered a dead end.  Even the ‘Big Oil’ companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken’s massive reserves….. and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels.  And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!
 
That’s enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years straight.  And if THAT didn’t throw you on the floor, then this next one should – because it’s from 2006!
 
U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World
 
Stansberry Report Online – 4/20/2006 
Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels.  On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this mother load of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?
 
They reported this stunning news:  We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth.. Here are the estimates:
– 8-times as much oil as    Saudi Arabia     

– 18-times as much oil as     Iraq     

– 21-times as much oil as     Kuwait     

– 22-times as much oil as      Iran     

– 500-times as much oil as   Yemen     

 – and it’s all right here in the  Western United States.     

HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help  America  become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy…..WHY?

James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we’ve got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped.  That’s more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post..
Don’t think ‘OPEC’ will drop its price – even with this find?  Think again!  It’s all about the competitive marketplace, – it has to. Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists? (end of email)
 
The government currently owns 650 million acres, or 29 percent of the nation’s total land. With a swoop of his pen, President Obama added another 10 million or so acres on March 30, 2009, in his land grab act, nicely reported here- http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/mar/2/white-house-land-grab/ Officially, called the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009, it is just the beginning. Under the guise of a bunny hugger plot and conservation objectives, the government is taking land and the rabbits with it.  “What magicians you have elected,” we wrote in this post at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/03/30/the-land-grab-omnibus-bill/ 
 

A New National Landscape Agenda?

As if things aren’t bad enough Tropical Storm Alex is about to change the landscape in a major way. “Some strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days and Alex is expected to become a hurricane on Tuesday,” the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on its latest update.  Luckily it is expected to veer towards  Brownsville, Texas, mostly sparing BP’s efforts south of Louisiana.Texas.  The only thing that has stayed on course that I know of, is the continued blame by President Obama on President Bush.

In adulthood and in childhood you pick a side and hope you win; you choose your favorite sports team and cheer for them.  The U.S. governement under Obama, is rooting for the whole world in negotiations and the U.S.  taxpayers is fighting a loosing battle.  

As an NRA badge carrying, conservative Republican, it would be a cold day in hell before I sent the Democrats one red cent of my money.  America can’t always get what it wants, but by supporting two sides of a battle, it puts us in the middle where we  are most likely get run over.

Billions of dollars has been poured into the Mideast and you know what?  Most of the citizens and governments love our money, but hate America.  The jihadists will stop at nothing and what does America do, send more money!

From Fox News http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/07/24/transfers-million-aid-palestinian-authority-clinton-says/ 

“U.S. Transfers $200 Million in Aid to Palestinian Authority, Clinton Says.

The United States has transferred $200 million in aid for the Palestinian people, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Friday. The money was part of the assistance package announced at an international donors conference in March. Clinton, who spoke after returning from a visit to India and Thailand, said the money had been transferred directly to the Palestinian Authority. She said that she had been assured that President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad “have put in place the foundations of a responsible, transparent, accountable government.” This had been verified, she said, by the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and internal reviews. 

Financing both sides of this battle, especially when our own economy lies in tatters is near traitorous. To think that either side, or even that America has a “responsible, transparent, accountable government” borders on being laughable, but it is not funny.  Clinton also said, ” the United States would continue to engage Israel and the Palestinians in peace talks and press for a two-state solution, and called on the rest of the world to help boost the Palestinian economy.”  Humph. How about someone sending a check to America?  Maybe paying back the U.S. Taxpayer for WWI and WWII. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/magazine/4757181.stm

Last I heard, The Palestinian Authority (Hamas) is classified by the United States as a terrorist organization.

I’m all for peace in an idealistic world.  But, the world is filled with leaders who to torturous things to its own citizens and hold the threat of nuclear war out like the golden carrot to get more U.S. Dollars.  Still we try to place nice in the world even though North Korea’s government-controlled KCNA news agency suggested that ‘she [sic Clinton] is by no means intelligent’. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1201630/Playground-scrap-Hilary-Clinton-says-North-Korea-friends-primary-schoolgirl.html Yet, we will continue to negotiate not only with NK but other states defined once, as members of the Axis of Evil. 

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said Saturday the country would strike Israel’s nuclear facilities if Tel Aviv attacked the Islamic state, Reuters reported state television as saying “If the Zionist Regime (Israel) attacks Iran, we will surely strike its nuclear facilities with our missile capabilities,” Mohammad Ali Jafari, Guards commander-in-chief, said. Jafari said Israel was entirely within the reach of Iran. “Our missile capability puts all of the Zionist regime (Israel) within Iran’s reach to attack,” Jafari said. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,534800,00.html 

Clinton said this week a nuclear Iran could be contained by a U.S. “defense umbrella,” setting off tremors in the Middle East. Since making the remark on a television chat show in Thailand, Clinton has backpedaled, saying she was only restating existing policy and not referring to any sort of formal guarantees of protection under an American “nuclear umbrella.”

Will we ballyhoo the doctrine of “preemption” in negotiations? Mr. President Obama- yet another test for you.  Perhaps both Clinton and Biden could shush for just a day.

How intelligent is our foreign policy when the chickens continue to try to cross the road from Israel, the fence stops them from laying eggs on the other side in Palestine- while Iran threatens to make a scrambled mess of the entire region?

I am just too f n tired to battle WordPress tonight as it deletes and eats my conservative posts regularly.  America dropped bombs launched from Iraqi soil and citizens are reported dead.  Democrats announced a 25% budget reduction in military spending today.  George Bush is still the President for the time being- making the best decisions he can, no matter what pundits have to say after he is out of office.

The Federal Election Commission Friday[9-8-08] approved payment of $84.1 million in federal funds for the general election campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin…. In that letter the candidates agreed to abide by the overall spending limit (there are no state-by-state limits) and to other legal requirements, including a post-campaign audit.  Presidential candidates accepting the federal payment are subject to a spending limit of $84.1 million, the amount of the payment, plus a combined personal spending limit of $50,000 from their personal funds.Additional funds may be raised, subject to the limits and prohibitions of the Federal Election Campaign Act, for legal and accounting expenses. http://www.fec.gov/press/press2008/20080908cert.shtml

Obama opted out and has significantly received more donations than McCain.  I wonder, if in part, the reason he chose not to accept federal funds was to avoid some of the legal requirements and possibly to avoid an audit.

Obama’s largest contributors to date is William Budinger to the tune of $30,800.  http://www.opensecrets.org/pres08/search.php?cid=N00009638&name=&employ=&state=%28all%29&zip=%28any+zip%29&submit=OK&amt=a&sort=A 

Who is William Budinger? William Budinger is listed as an active Trusee for the Aspen Institute, his time is now spent helping the Rodel Foundation pursue its education reform objectives.  What are exactly are those objectives, I wonder.  http://www.rodelfoundations.org/aspen.shtml  Foundation recipients are lucky enough to attend “week-long seminars in both China and the Middle East where Fellows will meet with regional leaders and learn about the challenges and opportunities those areas pose for the future of America.”

A Conversation with Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) and Aspen Institute President Walter Isaacson,

http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.1096989/k.C19/Senator_Barack_Obama_and_Walter_Isaacson.htm

From Obama own lips speaking at the Aspen Institute, “Abortion is an issue that is very difficult to compromise on because people feel very deeply about these issues. And if you believe that abortion is murder, then it’s hard to say, “Well, I’ll admit murder in some circumstances.” You feel that you have to go all the way and fight as hard as you can.”

What is more controversial than Obama’s stance on partial birth abortions? http://www.abortionfacts.com/online_books/love_them_both/why_cant_we_love_them_both_18.asp#partial%20birth%20abortion  His wife Michelle is right in his shadow.  “In February 2004, his wife, Michelle, sent out a fundraising letter, which actually stated her concern over the rise of conservatism in the Country, and that the ‘so-called’ partial-birth abortion was a legitimate medical procedure that should be protected.” http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/77500/barack_hussein_obama_jr_defends_partialbirth.html?cat=9   And, Barack Obama said on July 17th, 2007: “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That’s the first thing that I’d do.” It will require that the taxpayer fund abortions and remove restrictions on abortion.  You can’t give a kid an aspirin from the school nurse without restrictions and yet, abortion will have little restrictions. 

Getting back to Isaacson -CNN, the network he headed during the Iraq War coverage, he is quoted as saying, “Walter Isaacson, who headed CNN, observes, “The people at Knight Ridder were calling the colonels and the lieutenants and the people in the CIA and finding out, you know, that the intelligence is not very good. We should’ve all been doing that.” If Issacson knew there was some questionable intelligence CNN didn’t report it or question it- Did they?

From its site, “The Aspen Institute mission is two fold: to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and to provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues.  http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.493947/k.7AC3/About_the_Aspen_Institute.htm

The Aspen Institute lists Harvard graduated Walter Isaacson as its current President & CEO.   http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.2253415/k.5A1D/About_Walter_Isaacson.htm Walter Isaacson, the president of the Aspen Institute, is the former managing editor of Time and chairman of CNN and the author of biographies of Henry Kissinger, Benjamin Franklin, and Albert Einstein. 

William E. Mayer is the Chairman of The Board for the Aspen Group with a pretty good resume dotted with being a Senior Partner of Park Avenue Equity Partners, to Credit Suisse, a trustee of the Columbia Group of Mutual Funds, a board member of the Acumen Fund, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and Vice Chairman of the Middle East Investment Initiative. http://www.aspeninstitute.org/site/c.huLWJeMRKpH/b.612715/k.960D/William_E_Mayer.htm

Surprisingly William Mayer he has supported John McCain by making campaign contributions to him.  Oops, he had to take some back.  ANYONE KNOW WHY?

Why is the contribution to John McCain by William E. Mayer shown as being returned?  It is because he is linked to tightly with the liberal Aspen Institute and was pressured into doing so?  Did William E. Mayer violate campaign laws?  Did he over extend himself and the checks bounced?  Did McCain stamp the envelope with return to sender?

On the Board of Directors at The Aspen we find some notable names like, Henry E. Catto, Madeleine K. Albright, and Leonard A. Lauder.  What brand of Lipstick does Sarah Palin wear? Also David Gergen, Robert K. Steel of Wachovia, Roderick von Lipsey USB Financial Services, Frederick B. Whittemore Morgan Stanley, Sidney Harman of Harmon Ind., but the name that really caught my eye besides well known Henry A. Kissinger, being Chairman of Kissinger Associates, Inc.,  was Prince Bandar bin Sultan-Former Saudi Ambassador to the United States. 

Prince Bandar bin Sultan in the past, has had loyalties to Bush, but not Sultan is not with out controversy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar_bin_Sultan  There were rumors that Prince Bandar bin Sultan was told of the plan to invade Iraq ahead of notifying Secretary of State Colin Powell.  Did Colin Powell’s feeling get hurt, and the reason he is now endorsing Obama and getting even with the Republican Party? 

Interestedly enough, Prince Bandar bin Sultan has a home larger that The White House, in where?  You guessed it, Aspen, Colorado, USA. Called The Halla Ranch http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar_bin_Sultan  http://www.christiesgreatestates.com   has it listed for sale.  Since 9-11, Prince Bandar bin Sultan no longer visits as often.  The Halla Ranch home has 15 bedrooms, but in his defense he has 8 children, so I can actually see that for such an honored dignitary.

McCain wants to know where Obama’s money is coming from and so do I.  We know all about William Budinger donation but “There’s $200 million of those campaign contributions – there’s no record. They’re not reported. You can report online now, $200 million, that we don’t know where the money came from. A lot of strange things going on in this campaign,” McCain said. “The American people should know where every penny came from. They know where every penny of my campaign contributions came from.”  http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2008/10/19/politics/fromtheroad/entry4531269.shtml

The Company that you keep, the words you speak, and your current and past associations sure says a lot about you Mr. Obama.  I hear on Howie Mandel’s, new game show, Deal or No Deal, “show me the money”  from contestants.  Well Mr. Obama who has no birth certificate and has 56 other citizenship questions pending for him in the Berg vs Obama, and the DNC et al pending lawsuit, SHOW ME THE MONEY.
