There can now be no doubt whatsoever that the BP oil spill was
purposefully contrived, either through deliberate negligence or
outright sabotage, and is now being used to further the Obama
administration’s political agenda. Criminal investigations into the
government and BP’s role in the disaster need to be launched by state
authorities in Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi immediately, while
local authorities also need to call emergency legislative sessions in
order to take over emergency response efforts from the feds before the
crisis gets much worse.
While BP CEO Tony Hayward is busy
watching yacht races, Barack Obama, who took two vacations
immediately after the oil spill, spends
his time playing golf. If this disaster is on a par 9/11 as Obama
claims then why is he fiddling while Rome burns? Every effort to find a
solution to this crisis while cleaning up the mess has been lackluster
and half-hearted. The federal government’s hyped rhetoric about how
bad the consequences of this spill will be has not been matched with
the appropriate action to combat the problem.
In hindsight, it’s becoming clear that the government has deliberately
botched the response and prevented local authorities from doing their
jobs, just as FEMA
deliberately sabotaged the state response to Hurricane Katrina in
order to make the crisis worse and create the pretext for a police
state response, gun confiscation and ultimately more federal power.
reports have surfaced of locals and state authorities being prevented
by BP contractors and the U.S. Coast Guard from helping to address
the devastation the spill has created in the region.
“(Louisiana) Governor Bobby Jindal had ordered the state’s fleet of
sixteen vacuum barges to clean up oil in the Louisiana marshes. On
Wednesday, the U.S. Coast Guard intercepted the barges and ordered them
to stop the cleanup. Ostensibly, the Coast Guard wanted to “inspect”
the barges — but then it didn’t inspect them. It just ordered them back
to dock and then did nothing,” reports
Just as happened with Katrina, BP in alliance with the feds have
erected an ‘information blockade’ around the oil spill. Reporters
have been harassed, threatened with arrest and prevented from
accessing the affected areas. Oil spill clean up workers have been
gagged from talking about their experiences. Foreign
ships have been prevented from helping in the clean up process.
Every effort has been made to stop the truth about the oil spill from
being uncovered – almost everything we learn about the situation comes
directly from BP or the federal government. This strictly enforced
cover-up shows that authorities are more concerned about protecting
their information lock down than actually cleaning up the spill.
This is part of what the Pentagon calls “psychological information
warfare” and it is intended to deceive and confuse the enemy (the
American people) so that they don’t uncover the truth.
The Jones Act, which forbids foreign ships from operating between
U.S. ports, can be waived in in cases of national emergencies or in
cases of strategic interest. Belgian company DEME contends that it has
the specialist vessels to fix the oil leak within two to four months,
technology the U.S. does not have. By taking bids on a contract to fix
the oil leak from international companies, Obama could have the problem
solved within a matter of weeks, but he
immediately refused the help of “thirteen entities that had
offered the U.S. oil spill assistance within about two weeks of the
Horizon rig explosion.” This is another clear example of the
government’s motivation to allow the crisis to drag on indefinitely
until they can use it to ram through their environmental agenda, which
we shall cover shortly.
Every indication points to the oil spill having been deliberately
caused, either by negligence or sabotage, by a combination of BP
executives and those who hold the reigns of power in the Obama
administration. This goes beyond Obama himself, who is merely there to
read the teleprompter and employ his fine acting skills in selling the
agenda that the globalists hope to enforce on the back of this
On May 27, the New York Times reported on how just days before the
explosion, BP chose to use a salt-water solution to seal the cement
around the casing pipe which was known to be a far riskier option that
the stronger heavy drilling fluid.
The choice of using a weaker salt-water solution, in light of the
safety concerns surrounding the oil well in the weeks and months before
the explosion, prompted heated arguments between a BP official and crew
members employed by Transocean, the rig’s owner, on the morning of the
blast, according to Douglas H. Brown, the chief mechanic for the
“Workers from the rig and company officials have said that hours
before the explosion, gases were leaking through the cement, which had
been set in place by the oil services contractor, Halliburton.
Investigators have said these leaks were the likely cause of the
is named in the majority of some two dozen lawsuits filed since
the explosion by Gulf Coast people and businesses who claim that the
company is to blame for the disaster.
Halliburton’s role in improperly sealing the well with a riskier
option, and the consternation this caused amongst workers on the rig,
is shocking given the fact that just 11 days before the Deepwater
Horizon rig exploded, Halliburton, the world’s second largest oilfield
services corporation, surprised some by acquiring Boots & Coots, a
relatively small but vastly experienced oil well control company, for
the sum of $240 million dollars.
Halliburton is profiting from the oil spill it helped cause because
Boots & Coots is now “under contract to BP – to help stop the Gulf
oil spill,” reports
the Christian Science Monitor.
“Could Halliburton have known that an oil disaster was on the
horizon, and planned in advance to profit from it? News reports
indicate they could have,” reports
York Times reported in May that BP was concerned about the rig’s
well casing — which Halliburton worked on — as early as June of 2009. The
Times also reported that a Halliburton employee warned BP three
weeks before the explosion that BP’s use of cement for the well casing
was “against [Halliburton's] best practices.”
Given that it was in the process of acquiring a company that would
receive millions of dollars in oil spill clean up contracts, was
Halliburton’s overriding motivation to properly fix the well or to
ensure it remained unstable?
BP itself was aware of cracks appearing in the Macondo well as far
back as February, right around the time Goldman Sachs and BP Chairman
Tony Hayward were busy dumping their stocks in the company on the eve
of the explosion that led to the oil spill, according to information
uncovered by congressional investigators.
The Mining and Mineral Services agency released documents to
Bloomberg indicating that BP “was trying to seal cracks in the well
about 40 miles (64 kilometers) off the Louisiana coast,” according
to the report.
The fissures, which BP began to attempt to fix on February 13, could
have played a role in the disaster, though this is a question still
being explored by investigators. Improperly sealed, the cracks cause
explosive natural gas to rush up the shaft.
“The company attempted a “cement squeeze,” which involves pumping
cement to seal the fissures, according to a well activity report. Over
the following week the company made repeated attempts to plug cracks
that were draining expensive drilling fluid, known as “mud,” into the
surrounding rocks,” states the report.
we previously highlighted, eyewitness evidence indicates that
Deepwater Horizon managers knew that the BP oil rig had major problems
before its explosion on April 20. A crew member who rescued burning
workers on the rig told Houston attorney Tony Buzbee of a conversation
between Deepwater Horizon installation manager Jimmy Harrell and
someone in Houston. According to the witness, Harrell was screaming,
“Are you fucking happy? Are you fucking happy? The rig’s on fire! I
told you this was gonna happen.”
The fact that BP managers were aware of problems with the rig and
were seemingly unconcerned about fixing them, in addition to
Halliburton’s clear financial motivation in improperly sealing the cap,
only lends more weight to the already startling indications of some
having foreknowledge of the disaster.
On page 37 of British
Petroleum’s own investigative report into the oil spill, it is
stated that the Hydraulic Control System on equipment designed to
automatically seal the well in an emergency was modified without BP’s
knowledge sometime before the explosion.
Highly suspicious stock and share trades by people connected to BP
before the explosion indicate some extent of foreknowledge.
Sachs dumped 44% of its shares in BP Oil during the first quarter
of 2010 – shares that subsequently lost 36 percent of their value,
equating to $96 million. The current chairman of Goldman Sachs is
Bilderberg luminary Peter Sutherland, who is also the former chairman
of British Petroleum.
reported by the London Telegraph on June 5th, Tony Hayward, the
current BP CEO sold £1.4 million of his shares in the fuel giant weeks
before the spill.
So we have clear evidence of foreknowledge, allied with brazen
financial motivation on behalf of several directly connected parties to
sabotage the oil well, or in the very least ensure that negligent
safety procedures increased the likelihood of an explosion, allied with
the fact that the well was indeed improperly sealed by these same
parties, much to the anger of the people working on the rig.
But the motivation for allowing the well to blow and prolonging the
crisis isn’t merely financial, it’s political too. The motto for the
people who pull the strings inside the Obama administration, people
like Rahm Emanuel and Hillary Clinton is to ‘never let a good crisis go
to waste’ – and Obama himself has certainly taken that to heart over
the course of the last two months.
The elite are still desperate to impose a consumption tax on
Americans as part of the move towards a “post-industrial revolution”
and the kind of nightmare “green economy” that has left Spain with a 20
per cent unemployment rate.
In a so-called green economy, over 2.2 jobs are lost for every “green
Obama administration has aggressively exploited the BP oil spill in the
Gulf of Mexico to manufacture an artificial urgency in an effort
to speed the passage of cap and trade in pursuit of a “green economy,” an
agenda firmly supported by the transnational oil corporations
Obama is claiming to be reigning in. British
Petroleum is one of the founding members of the cap and trade lobby,
and has consistently “lobbied for tax hikes, greenhouse gas
restraints, the stimulus bill, the Wall Street bailout, and subsidies
for oil pipelines, solar panels, natural gas and biofuels.”
Indeed, BP has been a faithful supporter of John Kerry’s climate
legislation because the company has “explicitly backed” a “higher gas
tax”. If Obama is able to exploit the oil spill to ram through his cap
and trade program, BP stands to profit to the tune of billions.
Allowing the crisis to worsen in pursuit of this goal is mutually
beneficial to both the Obama administration and British Petroleum.
Obama’s “Agenda is to exaggerate the significance of the oil spill
crisis to massive proportions, for two reasons,” writes
the Telegraph’s Gerald Warner. “The first is that, the more
Americans can be persuaded to regard the accident as a monumental,
historic disaster, the less his patent impotence in the face of it will
appear blameworthy. His second reason is that, in accordance with the
Emanuel doctrine (never let a good crisis go to waste), he sees this as
an opportunity to breathe new life into his moribund Cap-and-Trade
climate change legislation.”
has now indicated that he will push for cap and trade to be added
to a weaker energy bill after the mid-term elections in November. Every
week that the oil spill crisis drags on, Obama’s political capital for
the purpose of pushing a carbon tax increases in the name of ‘reducing
dependence on oil’. The government has every interest in seeing the
crisis worsen, not merely to justify cap and trade but also to mothball
plans for new exploratory oil drilling in the Arctic, something
to which the administration had never wanted to fully commit. . As a
result of the oil spill, which every action of the federal government
has made worse, that drilling has now been postponed.
Another benefit of the oil spill is that it serves as a convenient
distraction and a cover for a number of other stories, primarily the
gearing up for a military attack on Iran, which now seems likely as
we learn that more than twelve U.S. and Israeli warships,
including an aircraft carrier, passed through the Suez Canal on Friday
and are headed for the Red Sea.
underwater oil field still holds as much as 97 per cent of its oil,
2 billion gallons of oil, meaning that this disaster could be
prolonged for anything up to four years. Even worse, if studies into
nature of oil in the Gulf region hold true, the crisis could be
Given the multitude of alarming examples of foreknowledge,
motivation for sabotage, and clear evidence of deliberate malfeasance
and negligence, state authorities in Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi
need to immediately launch a mammoth criminal investigation into the
role of BP, Halliburton and the federal government in causing the oil
spill disaster, as well as their continuing cover-up of the true nature
of the crisis, in addition to their efforts to block local authorities
as well as foreign companies from helping to both stop the oil leak and
clean up the devastation it has caused.
We encourage readers to contact the office of the Governor
in these three states, as well as local legislative offices, in order
to bring attention to this urgent matter and create momentum behind a
criminal investigation into the disaster. Please be polite in your
communications and invite local authorities to look into the evidence
presented in this article.
