three weeks

You and I may not have any privacy, but big corporations have lots of privacy. Even when they make terrible mistakes that pollute the air and water and soil that we all share. They don't have to show or tell anything they don't want to, and the government and the giant corporate media just have to sit there and take it. Yes. Totally powerless they are, when it's convenient to be that way.

Like say when something needs to be overlooked for a period of time.

"Critics blast BP for not releasing video showing the extent of the Gulf Coast oil spill. CNN's Ed Lavandera reports."


Remember the narrative, an X-wars narrative.

Human Error + Mother Nature = Disaster of Biblical Proportions

And then:

Human Error + Mother Nature + Conspiracy to Hide the Truth = Disaster of Biblical Proportions

And here we are. Remember, either way we get the Disaster of Biblical Proportions. But the conspiracy to hide the truth helps to affix blame. It also allowed the problem to fester long enough to assure biblical proportions.

CNN is now complaining that BP is controlling ALL video of the spill underwater. And BP won't release it, except for this one little piece. Message control.

But does that really make sense?

So BP controls *all* the video from *all* the robots? How convenient is that? Does BP own the Gulf of Mexico, too? Does the US government not have any pull in this situation, to demand BP release videos or failing that to go and get our own damn video? Don't the American taxpayers have a robot in our budget capable of going down there and taking video. Didn't we put one on Mars?

What if that's a crime scene down there? What are those BP robots doing? What about evidence? I guess we'll never know. How convenient is THAT?

Maybe this is the trouble with allowing 60% of people in the war room to be from BP, and the rest to be from other private companies and US government agencies? No one appears to be able to protect the public interest.

And how could the corporate media allow BP to control the message? At the very least the corporate media could have been COMPLAINING. Again, what about protecting the public interest? I guess that's not the corporate media's job either.

So you see, this finger pointing at BP, deserving as BP is, does not quite cut it, because BP can't get away with message control unless the US government and the corporate media let them.

Recap: Now that the oil has been gushing out for THREE WEEKS, now we're finding out that we have a problem of TRANSPARENCY. The narrative is moving to reveal the conspiracy to withhold information. BP will be blamed.

Regrettably, so much damage has already been done. We have only seen the tip of the iceberg.

Up to now, the oil spill in the Gulf -- with the exception of photos of discolored water -- has been mostly abstract. With the disaster finally making itself seen, however, expect the visual media to assume a much larger role now, with a corresponding gut punch to the American public and the political powers that be.  (Huffington Post)

Good job Brownie.

Peasant someone is going to notice however when oil begins circulating through the keys and flooding the beaches around the gulf coast.

If they can't stop it oil will go up the east coast and the follow the gulf stream right to the British Isles and Europe. They will notice.

As for the hole in the earth who knows. There could be so much oil down there by now they can't see what is going on with the robots. There could be such a gas fume over the hole ships can't get around it without sparking it. Who knows? There must be some reason for the secrecy.

The reason for the secrecy, IMO, is that although we're being told around 5,000 barrels a day are being released, I bet it's closer to 20,000.

I base that on past screwups that the goverment has been involved and never admitted all the truth at once, if ever.

Have we finally managed to kill the world's oceans?
the Silverfish said…
DM So they will notice, and then what? What will they do? Have the president and CEO of BP go out with a mop and pail to clean it up? Or will the people just sit around wringing their hands with a lot of oh mys and boo hoo's? I opt for betting on the latter, as thats the way that it always works out.

good links dubs.

it seems clear to me that the intent all along was for this to get out of hand. the dithering and foot dragging going on, just incredible. and the quality of solutions offered? let's put a box over it? let's stuff it with golf balls?

it's a joke. it's like the dees illustration of rumsfeld, cheney and bush laughing about the jet fuel causing the towers to collapse. yeah that's a good one. ha ha.
A. Peasant said…
and btw dubs, i was not at all sure about this at first. i think if these people were serious about stopping it they could have figured something out, but looks like the plan was all along to let it get completely out of hand, probably in order to pull down what's left of the economy and force the issue there. as they're running out of time. and for that they had to drag their feet for several weeks to let a massive amount of oil out.

The disappearing Polish government is getting interesting. The husband of a top lawyer says her car is supposed to be at airport and it is not. Police can't find it.

No witnesses to plane leaving Poland or valid explanation why reporters were not put on plane and the Russians say they heard gun shots in the woods where the four pilots crashed after saying they were the only ones on the plane by radio. HHHHHHMMMMMMM\

It is hard to say. I am not sure BP wants to intentionally lose billions of dollars. I am still leaning toward utter stupidity and greed.
A. Peasant said…
will check out jane.

i'm sure BP does not want to lose billions. but they were crooked going into this. if it is sabotage, there would be a whole other dynamic in play that would result in strange behavior.
A. Peasant said…
dubs here's a wayne madsen report on it:

Obama and his senior White House staff, as well as Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, are working with BP's chief executive officer Tony Hayward on legislation that would raise the cap on liability for damage claims from those affected by the oil disaster from $75 million to $10 billion.

However, WMR's federal and Gulf state sources are reporting the disaster has the real potential cost of at least $1 trillion. Critics of the deal being worked out between Obama and Hayward point out that $10 billion is a mere drop in the bucket for a trillion dollar disaster but also note that BP, if its assets were nationalized, could fetch almost a trillion dollars for compensation purposes.

That was the best link yet. I can always count on you.
I posted that on my blog and noticed it was # 13666.
A. Peasant said…
just one thing:

There is other satellite imagery being withheld by the Obama administration that shows what lies under the gaping chasm spewing oil at an ever-alarming rate is a cavern estimated to be around the size of Mount Everest. This information has been given an almost national security-level classification to keep it from the public, according to our sources.

it would be nice to know these sources that he has. madsen is former navy and NSA, etc. he's an insider. so i do love his reports but you know, you never know... when i read that i thought, oh sure, it's "almost" national security level info but not quite, and anyway it has been leaked now, so somebody wanted it leaked.

i see this continuing to be an ever-more-horrific disaster that will require the most unthinkable choices. are you seeing that too? you know when they start saying we have "no choice".... that's the signal that they wanted to do whatever the thing is that we have no choice to do.

Do you remember my first comments about how they will have to nuke it?

I am right beside it and frankly not the least bit nervous about leaving this demon infested planet.

I am going to have to change computers they are screwing with this one too bad.
A. Peasant said…
i'm sorry you have so many problems with posting. things seem to show up here ok so i don't know what might be going on. sometimes it might take a minute but it says that on the top of the window when you hit "publish your comment."

yes i remember you said that, and i think it will probably come to that. looks like they want that genie out of the bottle... nukes are good kind of thing? i don't know.
A. Peasant said…
dubs you will like this one too:

Goldman Sachs, which makes more money from trading than any other Wall Street firm, also disclosed that its traders generated $100 million or more on 35 days during the first quarter and lost money on no days. The firm set a record when it made $100 million or more on 46 days in the second quarter.

No losing days in the entire quarter?

I am sure much of what we are hearing is true. It is no longer just a U.S. matter, it is a planetary matter. This has a bearing on everyone.

I suspect there are talks at levels between countries going on now. I would sure love to be a fly on the wall. There are countries who have expertise in these matters. Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina and others come to mind.

I wonder if they will insist on the arrest and trial of maniacs in this crisis? I wonder if the U. S. can't fix it somebody else will! It could lead to war.

What are the chances the rest of the world begins to see the gulf as a threat to it's own existence?

Peasant you are going to have to read my blog once in awhile.

That clinic sounds like mind control ultra. Psychiatric drugs like Depakote, Paxil, Risperdal, Ritalin, or Seroquel are aspartame based which means you won't have much of a pancreas or liver left after a long time on them. Most will balloon up and weigh 300 pounds or end up like Michael J. Fox.

Once they get their paws on them they also suggest an MRI right away. More dangerous than 1000 xrayss and they load you up with barium. They want to "make sure" there is nothing serious going on in the noggin.

I bet they save the heaviest shock waves for satanic holidays. I am quite familiar with wading through satan's killing fields. I have known people where I had to intervene to get them off these drugs. One man I worked with for years and his wife was a nurse told me his daughter was hyper the school said and he put her on ritalin. She ran away from home at 9 years old.

Nurses are the toughest to help recover. They have read a few books and really think they know some shit.Their ego won't let them realize they have been duped.

I explained to him that I was hyper at 9 also but didn't need italin. He got her off the drug and she eventually became an honor student.

Of course he developed a tumor over his ear from the cell phone and needed surgery and to learn to walk again. He always asked me if I broght my cell phone and I would say not you have yours that is all we need I am not into brain tumors. He would just laugh.

Peasant if you think I am kidding about the nurses take a look on veterans today. I think Carol Duff may even be Gordon's wife. It started out with her telling me I am part of the problem discouraging people not to do the responsible thing like take a flu shot. LOL

Read the ongoing comments over the months.

One of the last comments was she has had the shot and her daughter and they are not dead yet. When she told me that I said "I am sorry to hear that."

With the vets if agent orange and DU did not do the job they finish them off at the VA clinics.
