NEWS FLASH: First Amendment Has been Suspended

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

As BP makes its latest attempt to plug its gushing oil well, news photographers are complaining that their efforts to document the slow-motion disaster in the Gulf of Mexico are being thwarted by local and federal officials—working with BP—who are blocking access to the sites where the effects of the spill are most visible.

A-Whale Won’t Help: EPA Denies A Whale Operating Permit

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Heritage reports on the problem with the giant skimmer:

“The A-Whale is the essence of an international ship—built in South Korea, modified in Portugal, owned by Taiwanese and flagged in Liberia.  And that is part of the problem.  Even if it stays farther offshore than the 3-mile limit of America’s Jones Act, it still requires approval by the U.S. Coast Guard and Environmental Protection Agency before BP can hire the A-Whale and put it to work.

The second problem is that the ship would gather spilled oil, separate the water from the oil, and discharge the water back into the ocean so its tanks could be filled with oil.  Our EPA has a problem with that, because the discharge because the discharge would retain a minor amount of oily residue.  To EPA, any residue greater than 15 parts per million is impermissible.  They elevate perfection above the need for speed.

So there you have it America, you can’t remove 99% of the oil, because it can’t remove 99.999985%. The ship is said to be able to remove 99.999950% of the oil.”

Obama Administration Complicit in BP’s Deep Horizon Catastrophe as Preparations Made for Oil to Supply US During Upcoming War with Iran

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Here’s an excerpt from Wayne Madsen:

“According to the Wayne Madsen Report (WMR) sources within the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Pentagon and Interior and Energy Departments told the Obama Administration that the newly-discovered estimated 3-4 billion barrels of oil in the Gulf of Mexico would cover America’s oil needs for up to eight months if there was a military attack on Iran that resulted in the bottling up of the Strait of Hormuz to oil tanker traffic, resulting in a cut-off of oil to the United States from the Persian Gulf.”

It appears BP was rushing the project at the behest of Obama’s Administration in order to give the US a supply of oil to sustain the US economy through the upcoming War with Iran.  And that BP was encouraged to pull out all the stops, that is, safety stops in an effort to bring in this new oil field just-in-time for war!

Obama’s Policies Scheduled to Destroy US Economy within Six Months

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

Obama’s attack on free enterprise & property rights with his policies recently enacted after BP’s Deep Horizon are designed to destroy the US economy within six months, placing the execution of that catastrophe right after the elections this November.  With his stroke of the pen, President Obama has put everything in place to “Deep Horizon” our economy within six months.

Was it Eco-Terrorism in the Gulf?

Why is it the catastrophe in the Gulf plays right into the hands of those who want to shut down America’s economy?

More importantly, when BP succeeds in recovering 85% of that oil spilling into the bottom of the Gulf, why is it there is no applause?

Here is a major victory in mitigating the damages, yet no one gives BP an “atta boy,” no one gives PB credit.
