Was the BP Oil Spill and act of SABOTAGE? By our own government?-- UPDATED!!!

Oilspill By Bob Barney: The Plain Truth

As BP's embattled CEO flew to Abu Dhabi and met with the wealthy emirate's influential crown prince amid speculation the oil giant is looking to raise cash as costs mount to contain the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster, the question has to be raised.  What is the real cause of the DeepWater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico? It has become painfully obvious that the Obama administration has done nothing to stem the flow of oil pouring out of the well. Several weeks ago, The Plain Truth ran several stories revealing the fact that the Soviet Union used nuclear bombs to stop the flow of oil in similar situations since the 1960s. We reported, that in at least five instances, the Soviet’s were able to explode oil wells in a successful effort to stop the flowing of oil. Even Bill Clinton suggested this in a TV interview last week. Clinton, actually said that he knows that we could use a controlled explosive device to stop the well from leaking. He went on to say, that we don’t even have to “NUKE” it at all! Clinton said we have the technology to do it without using the A-bomb. Another week has gone by, and nobody, we mean nobody is covering this aspect of the story.


Now reports are coming out that BP is for sale, and it is possible that either the Arab oil interest, or even China is about to take over the company. After the rape of the wealth of the United States of America by both Republican and Democratic administrations, we have seen the takeover of General Motors, Chrysler, and Wall Street. The question has to be asked, was forces inside the United States responsible for the explosion of this well. We realize that the premise seems to be a bit over-the-top, but 80 days of doing nothing is even more over-the-top! Our government has done nothing to help stop this leak. In reality, they have hindered every attempt to clean up the spill, or stop the leak. Is the Obama administration trying to ruin BP and force it to be sold to Obama allies?  Was this the plan all along, and does this explain why he is doing NOTHING today to stop this disaster! Could it be that this was planned from the beginning? It is starting to look that way indeed.

Now the news that BP is for sale must make us wonder if this event was in fact an act of sabotage---and was that sabotage done by those in power in Washington DC. It appears that yet, another company, actually owned by another nation, is in the process of being destroyed by the Obama administration, as they did to GM!

The British newspaper, called the Guardian is reporting that, “China looks poised to help bail out BP by buying up to $9bn (£6bn) worth of energy assets in South America, raising vital money for the British oil company to pay bills from environmental liabilities in the Gulf of Mexico.

Russian management of the TNK-BP joint venture, based in Moscow, has also said that it would like to buy more assets from the beleaguered company in other parts of the world.

China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) is understood to have expressed an interest in buying the 60% stake held by BP in Pan American Energy, Argentina's fastest-growing oil and gas group.


CNOOC recently bought a 20% stake in Pan American Energy for $3bn and is apparently keen to increase that holding to 80% through a deal with BP, which considers the assets "non-core".


The Chinese oil companies – partly state-owned – have been avid buyers of energy assets around the world in an effort to feed the country's rapid industrialisation programme. The Kremlin has also made no secret of its desire to see Russian oil companies spreading their influence worldwide.

BP, which declined to comment last night on any talks with China or Russia, announced plans to sell $10bn in assets worldwide to help pay for claims and other demands made in the aftermath of the oil slick from the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico in April.”

These reports are very disturbing, and questions need to be raised, asked, and answered concerning the lack of any attempts to stop the oil from leaking. This nation is being taken over by radical communist backed foreigners. Our reports concerning the nationality and the birthplace of Barack Obama only fuel speculation that this man is actually a covert agent who is in reality trying to destroy this nation, as well as the British Commonwealth and the nation of Israel. Our enemies have a better chance of reaping the reward of the American dream than any American living in this nation today. It is time that we start demanding some answers concerning what is going on in the Gulf of Mexico.

There is absolutely no excuse for the handling of this crisis by our government. The blame must be placed equally upon the Republicans and Democrats alike. Our nation is being destroyed in a matter of months and we have nobody--- I mean nobody--- in the media asking these tough questions. Friends, you if don’t take this bull by the horns now, and force some actions--- there will be no nation  left for your children and grandchildren to inherit. Time is running out!


UPDATE:

Evidence Indicates Gulf of Mexico Oil Disaster Was Engineered And Prolonged By Design

Source: www.roguegovernment.com - By Lee Rogers

The BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is obviously a situation of unprecedented proportions.  Even worse is that there is a great deal of evidence to indicate that this event was an engineered conspiracy.  Even if one is not convinced of a conspiracy it is at the very least obvious that the U.S. government and the corporate media are not giving the general public a full picture of what's going on.

First, a number of powerful players conveniently had the foresight to dump large numbers of BP shares prior to the event which began on April 20th 2010.  This saved them from the substantial loss in value of BP shares that occurred after the event.

Goldman Sachs sold 44% of its shares in BP just prior to when this disaster began.

BP’s CEO Tony Hayward sold a large chunk of his BP shares a few weeks before the spill.

Both Wachovia and UBS also sold a large block of their BP shares before the spill.

Second, Halliburton which had been responsible for servicing the oil rig involved in this disaster purchased Boots and Coots a company specializing in extinguishing oil well and oil rig fires just days prior to the incident.  Halliburton was also involved in conducting a cementing operation on the oil rig just 20 hours before it went up in flamesBP would eventually hire Boots and Coots to work with them on containing the oil spill.

Third, Peter Sutherland a member of powerful globalist organizations such as the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg Group has held high level positions at both Goldman Sachs and BP.  It is highly probable that he played a role in Goldman Sachs decision to dump a large chunk of their BP shares prior to the disaster considering he has maintained an affiliation with both institutions.  Conveniently the Trilateral Commission's web-site removed his bio page from their web site but it is still available via the Way Back Machine here.  There it details his role at both BP and Goldman Sachs.

Fourth, this disaster is now conveniently providing the U.S. government and the various powers that be the excuse to revamp energy policy.  In particular, it provides the pretext to push ahead draconian cap and trade and carbon tax initiatives.

Fifth, on the day of the explosion the Coast Guard initially reported that there was an explosion on the oil rig three hours before it went up in flames.  They later retracted the statement claiming that this was due to a computer time-stamp problem and that such an explosion never took place.  This is a fairly ridiculous notion considering that accountability of time is taken incredibly seriously in every branch of the U.S. military.  It is unlikely that such a mistake was made and more likely that this was merely an attempt to retract truthful information that didn’t fit in with how they intended on framing the official story.

Sixth, all attempts to plug the oil gusher have thus far failed.  This in of itself isn’t strange but what is strange is that the tactics used to plug the leak have basically been the same ones that failed to stop a much smaller oil leak that occurred in the Gulf of Mexico in 1979.  Why would so-called industry experts use the same tactics that failed 31 years ago on a much larger oil gusher?  It doesn’t make any sense unless the intention was to prolong the disaster.  Surprisingly, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow actually did a half-way decent job covering this aspect of the containment failures in one of her TV segments which can be viewed below.  


CHINA: Flights diverted, delayed as UFO detected hovering

An unidentified flying object (UFO) disrupted air traffic over Zhejiang's provincial capital Hangzhou late on Wednesday, the municipal government said on Thursday.

Xiaoshan Airport was closed after the UFO was detected at around 9 pm, and some flights were rerouted to airports in the cities of Ningbo and Wuxi , said an airport spokesman, who declined to be named.

The airport had resumed operations, and more details will be released after an investigation, he said.

A source with knowledge of the matter, however, told China Daily on Thursday that authorities had learned what the UFO was after an investigation.

But it was not the proper time to publicly disclose the information because there was a military connection, he said, adding that an official explanation is expected to be given on Friday.

Inbound flights were diverted to the nearby airports in Zhejiang province's Ningbo and Jiangsu province's Wuxi. Outbound flights were delayed for three to four hours.

A staff member at the airport's information desk said the airport had "no idea" how many flights were affected by the closure.

At around 11 pm on Wednesday, a netizen wrote three entries announcing the airport's closure in

his microblog at Sina.com, but they were all soon deleted.

He posted an apology at midnight, saying the news had not been confirmed and asking those who had republished his earlier entries to delete them.

New Black Panther Obama DOJ refused to prosecute: 'I hate white people – all of them!'

By Chelsea Schilling
© 2010 WorldNetDaily


Minister King Samir Shabazz, aka Maurice Heath (photo: Can't Stop the Bleeding blog)

"You want freedom? You're gonna have to kill some crackers! You're gonna have to kill some of their babies!"

Those were the words of Minister King Samir Shabazz, also known as Maurice Heath, the New Black Panther Party's Philadelphia leader.

Shabazz is the same man the Obama administration Department of Justice refused to prosecute after he was filmed on Election Day 2008 with Jerry Jackson wearing paramilitary uniforms, carrying a nightstick and blocking a doorway to a polling location to intimidate voters.

The following YouTube video posted by Naked Emperor News shows his statements during a National Geographic special on the New Black Panthers:

"I hate white people – all of them! Every last iota of a cracker, I hate 'em," Shabazz shouts into a megaphone on a crowded sidewalk. "Through South Street with white, dirty, cracker whore [expletive] on our arms. And we call ourselves black men with African garb on."

Then Shabazz spotted a black man embracing a white woman.

"What the hell is wrong with you, black man?" he shouted into his megaphone. "You [inaudible] with a white girl on your damn arm!

"You want freedom? You're gonna have to kill some crackers! You're gonna have to kill some of their babies!"

In a 2008 interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Sabazz said, "I'm about the total destruction of white people. I'm about the total liberation of black people. I hate white people. I hate my enemy. ..."

National Geographic describes the New Black Panther Party as "a militant hate group headquartered in Washington, D.C., that seeks to redefine the black struggle for equality and demand liberation from what it sees as white supremacy."

The party has marched on Independence Day, dragging American flags through the streets, trampling the flag on the ground and setting it on fire. The following video shows members of a New York chapter protesting celebration of Independence Day at an event called "4th of U-lie" on July 5, 2008. Members say the day is not a celebration of independence for blacks.



As WND reported, one poll watcher called police on Nov. 4, 2008, after he reportedly saw Shabazz brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters just 15 feet outside a Philadelphia polling location. Shabazz stood in front of the building with Jackson.

"As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other," the witness told Fox News at the time. "So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said they'd been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what."

He said the man with a nightstick told him, "'We're tired of white supremacy,' and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, 'OK, we're not going to get in a fistfight right here,' and I called the police."

According to various witnesses, the men also hurled racial epithets such as "white devil" and "cracker" and told voters they should prepare to be "ruled by the black man." One person said the men called a Republican poll worker a "race traitor" and told him there would be "hell to pay."

The following is a YouTube video of the Election Day incident:

Career Department of Justice attorneys headed by voting-section chief Chris Coates filed a case under Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 against four defendants, accused the men of attempting to engage in, and engaging in, both voter intimidation and intimidation of individuals aiding voters.

The original Department of Justice complaint named Shabazz, Jackson and two other defendants: the New Black Panther Party and its chairman, Malik Zulu Shabazz, who planned deployment of 300 members on Election Day.

A federal judge ordered default judgments against the New Black Panthers after party members refused to appear in court. The DOJ trial team had won its case.

Even though DOJ lawyers had won, the Obama administration suddenly ordered it dropped – against advice of prosecutors who brought the case.

In April, the New Black Panther Party released a statement blaming Republicans, "tea-party racists" and "right-wing circles" for complaining and harassing the organization.

"Our only connection to President Obama is the common color of our skin," it states. "The same dog that bites President Obama bites us too. So I say, if you were wise, you would leave Obama alone as well because he is your last chance to save your country. You are mad because a black man has been elected to the presidency, and that affronts your oversized ego."

Christian Adams, a former DOJ attorney who quit his job after over the Obama administration's refusal to prosecute the Panthers, claims the administration has ordered the DOJ not to pursue voting-rights cases against black people. He said the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, which is investigating the dismissal, subpoenaed him and Coates, but their DOJ superiors ordered them not to testify – a violation of federal law.

"The case was dismissed on May 15, [2009]," Adams told Fox News. "All the charges were dropped against three of the defendants and the final order against one of the defendants was a timid restraint."

Only one of four defendants, Samir Shabazz, faced punishment: a temporary injunction against appearing at Philadelphia polls with a weapon. The department stopped at the injunction and didn't call for criminal penalties, monetary damages or other civil penalties.

"We were ordered to dismiss the case," Adams said. "I mean, we were told drop the charges against the New Black Panther Party."

The Department of Justice said it made a decision based on the evidence that the case could not go forward.

As WND reported, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has suggested it is now expanding its review of claims that the DOJ implemented a ban on prosecuting defendants who are black.

At a hearing in Washington this week, Adams testified that staffers throughout the department have subscribed for years to the notion that the DOJ's primary responsibility is to protect the voting rights of minority voters, not whites. He added that recent Obama administration DOJ appointees have reinforced this notion by making such racial discrimination a formal departmental policy.

According to Adams, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandez, an Obama appointee at the top of the department, announced at a policy meeting that "the voting section will not bring any other cases against blacks and other minorities."

Meanwhile, Pajamas Media reports that three more former DOJ officials are stepping forward to support Adams' testimony. According to the report, the former employees have "expressed a willingness to go on record regarding Adams' professionalism, excellent performance and outstanding record of enforcing the law without bias."

Pajamas Media adds, "Additionally, they would like to corroborate Adams' statements about the DOJ" and even offer their own accounts of purported DOJ hostility to "race-neutral law enforcement."

Asheesh Agarwal, former deputy assistant attorney general in the Civil Rights Division, worked with Adams on several cases. He called Adams a "model attorney who vigorously enforced federal voting-rights laws on behalf of all voters, without respect to race or ideology."

Mark Corallo, former DOJ director of public affairs, added: "I am not surprised that the Department is attacking J. Christian Adams. The Civil Rights Division attorneys have no interest in the rule of law as written and passed by Congress – the New Black Panther case is glaring proof that the Division has an agenda. If Congress was truly interested in oversight, there would be hearings on this case and others."

Finally, Robert Driscoll, former deputy assistant attorney general who knew Adams, told Pajamas Media:

If this is indeed the view of senior career DOJ staff – that after reviewing the facts of the New Black Panther case and the video, current laws against voter intimidation provide no ability for the DOJ to properly bring an action against the New Black Panther members shown on video and mentioned in the lawsuit — then Congress needs to have a conversation with Attorney General Holder about whether the problem lies with the Voting Rights Act itself, or with those whose job it is to enforce it.

In God We Trust...right?

In God We Trust

Congress is being asked to go on record and show support for the national motto.

 Virginia Congressman Randy Forbes (R) has introduced H.Con.Res.274 to gain support for "In God We Trust." The American Family Association has issued an action alert, showing its support for the motion that calls for federal buildings, school facilities and other public places to display and affirm the national motto.

Congressman Forbes notes that about 78 percent of Americans believe in God, "and yet we have a small handful of anti-faith people who want to stop you and I from being able to talk like that, [to] try to stop our children from saying it at school, our business people in their business [and] our military in the military."

Randy ForbesHe believes this is the right time for Americans to stand up for their faith.

"Every generation of Americans, since the signing of the Declaration of Independence, has had to fight to make sure we kept the principles of that great document, that our rights came from God himself," he points out. "In every one of those struggles, the great strength we had was our faith."

He thinks it is time to stop allowing groups representing atheists and agnostics limit everyone's free speech rights. "What the anti-faith people want to do is cut off access to the marketplace of ideas in America for people of faith and religion," Forbes suggests.

The congressman concludes that for the sake of believers' faith, it is crucial that non-believers fail in this effort.





A Majority of U.S. Combat Casualties in Nine-Year-Long Afghanistan War Have Occurred in Less Than Year-and-a-Half of Obama Presidency

(CNSNews.com)

A majority of all combat-related U.S. casualties in the nine-year-long war in Afghanistan have occurred since President Barack Obama was inaugurated a little more than 17 months ago.

Between Jan. 20, 2009 and July 2, 2010, according to CNSNews.com's database of Afghanistan war casualties, U.S. military personnel suffered 452 combat-related deaths in Afghanistan. That amounts to more than half of the total of 900 combat-related fatalities suffered by U.S. forces in Afghanistan during the entire nine years of the war.

To see a month-by-month chart of U.S. combat casualties in Afghanistan since October 2001 click here.

There have also been 40 non-combat related U.S. casualties in Afghanistan since Obama's inauguration, bringing the total U.S. casualties in the country to 492 during Obama's presidency. Non-combat fatalities include soldiers who have drowned or died from vehicle or other accidents.

Each of the top five deadliest months of the war, accounting for both combat and non-combat deaths, have taken place during Obama's term. Those five months were:

1. June 2010 (59 casualties).

2. October 2009 (58 casualties).

3. August 2009 (51 deaths)

4. July 2009 (43 deaths)

5. September 2009 (37 deaths)

In all of 2009, there were 303 U.S. casualties (combat and non-combat) in Afghanistan, making it the deadliest year of the war, which started in October 2001. However, there were 199 U.S. casualties reported in Afghanistan in the first half of 2010 (January through June). That is more than double the 84 U.S. casualties that occurred in Afghanistan during the first half of 2009.

Last year, President Obama ordered an escalation in the U.S. troop strength in Afghanistan. As a candidate, he had vowed to shift the focus of U.S. military operations in the Middle East from Iraq to Afghanistan.  The president's current policy is to begin withdrawing troops from Afghanistan one year from now, in July 2011.


President Barack Obama salutes the casket of a fallen soldier during a middle-of-the-night visit to Dover Air Force Base, Del., on Thursday, Oct. 29, 2009.

About 42 percent of all combat and non-combat U.S. deaths have taken place since May 15, 2009, the day when troops from Obama’s first surge arrived in Afghanistan.
 
Speaking at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point on Dec. 2, 2009, Obama announced the deployment of 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan and said that in July 2011 he would begin withdrawing troops from Afghanistan “taking into account conditions on the ground.”
 
Since then, the president has maintained his policy that a drawdown will begin in July 2011, emphasizing that the date will mark the beginning of a transition “process” where tasks will be transferred to the Afghan government and its security forces. 
 
Gen. David Petraeus, the top commander of U.S.-led NATO forces in Afghanistan, testified before Congress that  the July 2011 drawdown date had not been recommended by him or any other military commander that he was aware of but that he agreed with it.
 
CNSNews.com’s casualty count is derived primarily from U.S. Defense Department casualty reports, but it also includes information gleaned from the news media
 
The count includes all U.S. military personnel who died or received fatal wounds in Afghanistan or Pakistan. It does not include U.S. soldiers who died outside of those two countries while supporting military efforts against terrorism under Operation Enduring Freedom, which includes multiple countries.

NASA's 'foremost' mission is now to improve relations with Muslim world...

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his "foremost" mission as the head of America's space exploration agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world.

Though international diplomacy would seem well outside NASA's orbit, Bolden said in an interview with Al Jazeera that strengthening those ties was among the top tasks President Obama assigned him. He said better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.

"When I became the NASA administrator -- or before I became the NASA administrator -- he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering," Bolden said in the interview.

The NASA administrator was in the Middle East last month marking the one-year anniversary since Obama delivered an address to Muslim nations in Cairo. Bolden spoke in June at the American University in Cairo -- in his interview with Al Jazeera, he described space travel as an international collaboration of which Muslim nations must be a part.

"It is a matter of trying to reach out and get the best of all worlds, if you will, and there is much to be gained by drawing in the contributions that are possible from the Muslim (nations)," he said. He held up the International Space Station as a model, praising the contributions there from the Russians and the Chinese.

Surveillance system monitors conversations

The technology, called Sigard, monitors movements and speech to detect signs of threatening behavior.

Its designers claim the system can anticipate anti-social behavior and violence by analyzing the information picked up its sensors.

They say alerts are then sent to police, nightclub bouncers or shop security staff, which allow them to nip trouble in the bud before arguments spiral into violence.

The devices are designed to distinguish between distress calls, threatening behaviour and general shouting.

The system, produced by Sound Intelligence, is being used in Dutch prisons, city centres and Amsterdam's Central Rail Station.

Coventry City Council is funding a pilot project which has for six months and has installed seven devices in the nightlife area on the High Street.

Dylan Sharpe, from Big Brother Watch, said: "There can be no justification for giving councils or the police the capability to listen in on private conversations.

"There is enormous potential for abuse, or a misheard word, causing unnecessary harm with this sort of intrusive and overbearing surveillance."

A CV1 spokesman said: "We had the system for six months. It is no longer in use."

No one from the organization was available to comment on whether the trial was a success.

The new Coalition Government has announced a review of the use of CCTV with a pledge to tilt the balance away from snooping by the authorities to defend civil liberties.      Source: Telegraph


50 Random Facts That Make You Wonder What In The World Has Happened To America



obamathad.jpg


Our world is changing at a pace that is so staggering these days that it can be really hard to fully grasp the significance of what we are witnessing.  Hopefully the collection of random facts below will help you to “connect the dots” just a little bit.  On one level, the facts below may not seem related.  However, what they all do have in common is that they show just how much the United States has fundamentally changed.  Do you ever just sit back and wonder what in the world has happened to America?  The truth is that the America that so many of us once loved so much has been shattered into a thousand pieces.  The “land of the free and the home of the brave” has been transformed into a socialized Big Brother nanny state that is oozing with corruption and has accumulated the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world.  The greatest economic machine that the world has ever seen is falling apart before our very eyes, and even when our politicians actually try to do something right (which is quite rare) the end result is still a bunch of garbage.  For those who still love this land (and there are a lot of us) it is heartbreaking to watch America slowly die.

The following are 50 random facts that show just how dramatically America has changed….

#50) A new report released by the United Nations is publicly calling for the establishment of a world currency and none of the major news networks are even covering it.

#49) The state of California is so broke that Arnold Schwarzenegger has ordered California State Controller John Chiang to reduce state worker pay for July to the federal minimum allowed by law — $7.25 an hour for most state workers.

#48) A police officer in Oklahoma recently tasered an 86-year-old disabled grandma in her bed and stepped on her oxygen hose until she couldn’t breathe because they considered her to be a “threat”.

#47) In early 2009, U.S. net national savings as a percentage of GDP went negative for the first time since 1952, and it has continued its downward trend since then.

#46) Corexit 9500 is so incredibly toxic that the UK’s Marine Management Organization has completely banned it, so if there was a major oil spill in the North Sea, BP would not be able to use it.  And yet BP has dumped over a million gallons of dispersants such as Corexit 9500 into the Gulf of Mexico.

Petraeus' odds in Afghanistan

A senior Army strategist and Pentagon advisor isn't sure about whether the appointment of General David Petraeus as commander of forces in Afghanistan will ultimately bring victory there.

By a 99-0 vote last week, the Senate unanimously confirmed General David Petraeus as the next commander of the Afghanistan war to replace General Stanley McChrystal, who was sacked because of inflammatory remarks he and his aides made to Rolling Stone magazine. As U.S. Central Command chief, Petraeus was McChrystal's boss and was already overseeing operations in Afghanistan, but his replacement at Central Command has not been announced. Read More>>>>>>>

California Welfare Recipients Withdraw $12,000 From Strip Club ATMs

California welfare recipients have been able to get taxpayer cash — meant to feed and clothe their children — from ATMs at strip clubs across the state, including some well-known gentlemen's cabarets in Los Angeles.

More than $12,000 from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program was dispensed between the start of 2007 and the end of 2009 at clubs, including Sam's Hofbrau, Star Strip and Seventh Veil, according to officials at the state Department of Social Services.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has ordered the department to remove the clubs from the official list of businesses where welfare recipients can withdraw benefits using state-issued ATM cards.CLICK TO READ MORE---------->
