Real-time video of oil leaking from beneath the damaged Deepwater Horizon rig 5,000 miles under the Gulf of Mexico reveals a disaster many times greater than BP has led the American public to believe, Rep. Edward J. Markey, D-Mass., said today....Obama administration officials today sent a letter to BP's CEO saying that the company had "fallen short" in its duty to keep the public and government officials informed about the spill.You got that? Hey, first question for ya... Who decided to let BP lead us anywhere?
Our government officials are complaining that BP lied. They MISLED the American people. So Obama's people sent a letter! That will show those goons at BP. I'm sure their hands will shake as they read it. And our corporate media talking heads are acting all stricken about the true scope of the disaster. Robin at Good Morning America had the about-to-cry face going, and Matt looked really disgusted.
That's our cue to cry and be disgusted now. Just follow Robin and Matt. It was important to wait over a month so that you can really cry and be really disgusted. Because now the mess is of biblical proportions. Of course had the government and Robin and Matt and friends decided to do their jobs a month ago...
- WHY did our government officials just take BP's word for what was going on, all this time?
- WHY did our intrepid news organizations with their amazing budgets take BP's word for what was going on, all this time?
- WHY didn't our government officials ANTICIPATE that BP would shirk it's duty to keep the public and government officials informed?
- WHY didn't our government officials consider it their OWN DUTY to stay informed and keep us informed?
- WHY didn't our intrepid news people with their killer journalistic instincts ANTICIPATE that BP would shirk it's duty to keep the public and government officials informed?
- WHY didn't our exceedingly well-compensated journalists consider it their OWN DUTY to dig for the story and keep us informed?
- WHY did our government allow BP to get away with controlling the information?
- WHY did our corporate news outlets allow BP to get away with controlling the information?
- WHY did our government allow BP to lead the American people around by the nose? We didn't elect BP did we?
- WHY did our corporate news people allow BP to lead them around by the nose?
It's as though they are all on the same team, no? That's because they ARE all on the same team, the team working to destroy the American people. The same people who control BP control the corporate media and the US government. Therefore their actions were coordinated to allow the disaster to become huge enough to "change everything."
And now, now that the damage is assured, the government officials and the corporate media are switching over to play the aggrieved victims. They will pretend to be on the side of the American people. They will pretend that they have no more resources than you or I do, and no more power than you or I do, and no way to do anything different than accept whatever BP said, because they are just like you and I. Regular schmucks. Sadly they were naive and trusting, just like the American people, forever naive and trusting, and they took those BP officials at their word, because after all it would have been uncivil to do anything else. And it turns out that was a terrible mistake. They lied. Can you believe it?
I mean, who could have predicted? Where is Condi when you need her?
Why does anyone follow them, the people on teevee, the politicians and the talking heads? They lead us to ruin. They play the victim so that you can identify with being a victim. They show you how to be a victim: Trust people you should not trust. Don't ask questions. Don't demand access. Don't take yourself seriously. Be pleasant at all times. Don't stand up for yourself. Bend over like a good slave and take it up the backside. And then when it's too late you can have the ready-to-cry face on just like Robin, or the disgusted face like Matt.
Or maybe we can just get real and put the face on that says
we know we were all just totally screwed, again.
And who did it. And hey we're not going to wait
around for nine fucking years to let you know this time.
around for nine fucking years to let you know this time.
If you look closely, you will see the similarities to 911.
1. Lucky timing
BP got a categorical exclusion from the rules of the National Environmental Policy Act eleven days before the explosion.
Larry Silverstein purchased the WTC buildings just weeks before 911, then collected double on his insurance policy.
2. Economic fallout
The spill will be used to justify shutting down all off-shore drilling. It will squeeze up the price of oil and further bite the economy, weakening the US public. See here Update II. No doubt it will also be used to justify the agenda to control all economic activity, carbon trading, etc., turning the US into an economic bantustan.
Little Bantustan, aka West Bank (source)
Greater Bantustan, aka USA (source)
You may recall that the economy tanked around 911 as well. Whether 911 caused it or merely covered it up, the two events coincided.
3. Clean up
BP is owned by Rothschild interests. Damages are capped, so who will pay for the cleanup? Taxpayers.
Who will get the cleanup work? Expect taxpayers to go into debt to pay Halliburton and friends to clean up the disaster they caused. The crime scene evidence remains at the bottom of the ocean, and that's where it will stay.
Who paid for the clean up after 911? Taxpayers. The steel beams (evidence) were swiftly removed. When we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq as a result of 911, who made a gajillion dollars? Halliburton and friends.
5. Environmental impact
The Gulf has been horribly polluted with toxins, both the oil and the dispersants. The spill has entered the loop current. Clean up has been massively mismanaged, with obvious solutions ignored or done improperly by people who are paid to know better. Private citizens, in desperation and horror, are doing clean up work and exposing themselves to toxins. We can expect a massive die off of marine life. Will people also get sick?
The dust from 911 coated everything. Rescue workers and residents were exposed to unknown toxins, which persisted for months. Deaths related to these exposures began to be reported in 2006, but are probably vastly underestimated due to poor monitoring and limited funding by the federal government.
6. Know-it-all witness setting the narrative
Mark Levin, a star of conservative radio, had an anonymous caller witness on Friday, April 30, 2010. You can see the transcript here. This witness, who could not be identified supposedly for his safety, claims to have been on the rig and seemed to know exactly how it all went down. His explanation at the beginning of part 2 bears a striking similarity to the Harley t-shirt guy on 911, who we later learned is an ACTOR, Mark Adrien Humphrey.
So turns out things didn't actually happen the way the Harley t-shirt guy said, and you know, things probably didn't happen the way Mark Levin's guest said either.
I'm sure there's much more. There's Halliburton on site finishing a cementing operation just 20 hours before the explosion, and Halliburton people on site during the incident. Halliburton buying an oil fire fighting company just days before the explosion. Possible short selling by Goldman Sachs, etc.
The question is, are we going to just sit here and listen to all this and accept these explanations? Or are we going to think our own thoughts, maybe get off the couch and do a little independent research? Because we don't actually have another decade to debate it all politely, like last time.
