Gulf Oil Gusher Now ‘Ten Times Worse’ Than Previously Estimated

leave a comment »

May 14, 2010: Stephen C. Webster / Raw Story – May 13, 2010

So this is why BP’s release of video showing the Gulf oil gusher was mysteriously delayed.

According to a scientific analysis of footage from the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, National Public Radio is claiming the growing ecological disaster is actually ten times worse than previously estimated, saying the rushing torrent of oil pouring into the ocean is equivalent to one Exxon-Valdez spill every four days. That’s more than 70,000 barrels a day — when the U.S. Coast Guard had placed the figure at a seemingly modest 5,000 barrels a day.

Until this point in human history, the Exxon-Valdez disaster was just one of the worst oil spills ever, with nearly 11 million gallons of crude lost to the murky depths. The Deepwater Horizon well has been jetting oil unabated for just short of one month at the time of this writing. Already, the pollution exceeds a scale which most individual humans can’t fully grasp.

While government agencies continue to examine what led to the oil rig explosion that killed 11 people, environmental legal experts are already predicting that there will be criminal charges ahead for at least one of the companies involved in the oil spill. A House energy panel looking into what might have caused the oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico found yesterday that a vital piece of equipment intended to prevent such disasters had significant problems.

Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI), chairman of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations on Wednesday outlined issues with the blowout preventer, a tool that BP claimed was ‘fail safe,’ that may have prevented it from engaging. The blowout preventer, reports the Washington Post, “Had a dead battery in its control pod, leaks in its hydraulic system, a “useless” test version of a key component and a cutting tool that wasn’t strong enough to shear through steel joints in the well pipe and stop the flow of oil.” It was also revealed during the hearing that BP knew “hours” ahead of the deadly explosion that there were problems with the oil well.

Meanwhile, rig owner Transocean, widely seen as one of three responsible parties including BP and Halliburton, is trying to limit its overall financial liability for the disaster, filing a court request on Thursday asking that it be held responsible for just under $27 million in damages, according to The Wall Street Journal. “Vessel owners routinely seek such protection following accidents at sea, lawyers say,” the paper added. “Still, the petition, filed in U.S. District Court in Houston, was likely to rile workers who escaped the burning rig and have filed suit or any of the estates of the 11 workers who died in the April 20 fire.”

Ultimately, costs associated to lawsuits stemming from the still-growing disaster are expected to far exceed even the costs of Hurricane Katrina. BP, already under siege by lawsuits, may even be facing a shareholder revolt. Teams of lawyers are already pooling their resources to serve affected parties in gulf states.

But that still hasn’t shut off the oil gusher. BP’s prior attempt at capping it with a dome failed, but the oil company said it would try its “top hat” idea in the coming days. If that fails, they plan to fire garbage at the well in hopes that it gets clogged.

In response to the crisis, President Obama has raised an initiative that will provide more than $50 million for oil cleanup and called for higher taxes on oil companies. Since the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded and sank, the U.S. government has allowed 27 different waivers for offshore drilling firms to avoid conducting environmental impact studies.

UPDATE: Democrats Align To Ban Offshore Drilling Along West Coast

Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Patty Murray (D-WA), Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Jeff Merkley (D-OR) issued a press release late Thursday insisting that their colleagues aid them in banning offshore drilling along much of America’s west coast. “We simply cannot afford the risk posed by oil drilling off our magnificent coast,” Sen. Boxer said in a media advisory. “Nearly 570,000 jobs and our vital coastal economy would not survive an environmental disaster like the one we’re seeing now along the Gulf Coast.”

“Offshore oil drilling carries with it real risk,” Sen. Feinstein added. “The voters of California have voted that they don’t want offshore oil drilling, and I don’t want offshore drilling. Now we know what the potential is for catastrophe and we have to see that it never, ever happens again. Therefore, I’m very happy to join with Senator Boxer and others on this legislation to permanently ban all new offshore oil and natural gas along the West Coast.”

Senate Democrats failed Thursday in a bid to quickly pass legislation that would dramatically increase oil firms’ economic liability after massive spills like the one soiling the Gulf of Mexico. The measure, pushed by lawmakers from New Jersey and Florida, would raise the ceiling on damages an oil company could have to pay for things like lost tourism or fishing revenue from 75 million dollars to 10 billion.

CORRECTION: A prior version of this article characterized the Exxon-Valdez disaster as the ‘worst’ in history. That dishonor goes to the Gulf War oil spill, according to MSNBC.

We Are Change Ireland: Trilateral Commission Wants A War In Iran

leave a comment »

May 14, 2010: Paul Joseph Watson / Prison Planet.com - May 14, 2010

David Rockefeller Jr. - Co-Founder of the Trilateral Commission

Trilateral Commission member Mikhail Slobodovsici, a chief adviser to the Russian leadership, unwittingly provided a revealing insight into the plans of the global elite during the group’s recent meeting in Dublin Ireland, when he mistakenly told a We Are Change Ireland activist he thought was a fellow TC member that the globalists are planning a war with Iran.

According to Jim Tucker’s fascinating report on the story, Slobodovsici also let slip to We Are Change Ireland’s Alan Keenan that the Trilateralists and their BIlderberg counterparts are intent on exploiting the economic crisis to finalize plans for a world government, but that this agenda is being severely hampered by so-called “nationalists” who are becoming increasingly aware of the impact that global government will have on their freedom and standards of living.

“We are deciding the future of the world,” Slobodovsici told Keenan. “We need a world government,” he said, but, referring to Iran, said “we need to get rid of them.”

“Suddenly, Slobodovsici noticed that Keenan’s nametag was different from the TC label and said: “I can’t talk—we operate under Chatham House rules,” reports Tucker.

Slobodovsici’s position on Iran is both alarming and surprising in equal measure, given that Russia has been generally supportive of Iran’s right to develop a peaceful nuclear fuel program and has directly helped build reactors. Tucker also reveals that Trilateralists are crestfallen at how their plans for global government and centralization of power are being so fiercely resisted.

“It gets worse every year, not better,” one said. “Why do we even bother to meet anymore?”

“We can’t simply give up and quit,” another responded. “Bilderberg expects us to have a plan outlined.”

The fact that the elite had planned to have their world government fully operational by 2000 and are ten years overdue has been much cause for concern amongst Trilateralists, reports Tucker. “TC boys are upset they were unable to exploit the economic crisis they helped generate by creating a world “treasury department” under the UN. They blame “rising nationalism” and ask “how those people knew about this,” according to witnesses inside the TC hotel.”

The continuing collapse of the euro threatens to derail the entire march towards global governance, a problem the elitists want to address by cranking up the printing presses in an effort to pour more money into failing states like Greece, Portugal and Spain.

The fact that a We Are Change Ireland activist was able to fool a Trilateral Commission member into spilling the beans on the globalists’ agenda is astounding. As was underscored recently by members of the Sovereign Independent who confronted David Rockefeller during the same meeting in Dublin, Trlaterals do not enjoy the same intense security that is afforded to the Bilderberg Group during their annual confab.

Bilderberg are set to convene at the Hotel Dolce Sitges near Barcelona Spain from June 4-7 for their annual meeting at which they will cover similar ground to the issues that were up for debate at the Trilateral conference in Dublin.

Israeli-American Microbiologist Linked To Deadly Man Made Virus

leave a comment »

May 14, 2010: Kurt Nimmo / Infowars.com – May 13, 2010

The strange case of Joseph Moshe has resurfaced. In August of 2009, Moshe was accused of making threats against the White House. He briefly made headlines during a stand-off with police in Los Angeles. During the confrontation, the Israeli scientist remarkably withstood five rounds of chemical agent tossed inside his car in the parking lot of the Federal Building in West Los Angeles.

It was later learned that Moshe had called into a radio talk show and said he wanted to supply evidence regarding tainted H1N1 swine flu vaccines being produced by Baxter BioPharma Solutions.

Moshe claimed a Baxter lab in Ukraine was producing a bioweapon that would be passed off as a vaccine. He said the vaccine contained an adjuvant engineered to weaken the immune system. Replicated RNA from the virus, Moshe insisted, was responsible for the 1918 pandemic Spanish flu. It was speculated Moshe worked for Israel’s Mossad.

In late October of 2009, Ukraine was hit by an especially aggressive and virulent form of hemorrhagic pneumonia. “The virus appears to be either a highly aggressive mutation of the globally-circulating H1N1 strain, or a combination of three different influenza strains now circulating in Ukraine,” Mike Adams wrote at the time.

“Moshe claimed that Baxter’s laboratory in the Ukraine out of all places was creating this biological weapon. All of this came out in the beginning of August, which is more than 2 months before the situation that is currently unfolding [in Ukraine]. For Moshe to correctly name the country where a new epidemic would be unleashed, requires either inside information, or an incredible coincidence as anyone with a basic knowledge of statistics can confirm for himself,” David Rothscum wrote on October 31.

The H1N1 flu “pandemic” turned out to be mostly government and media hype. It was later said the United Nations’ World Health Organization had connived with Baxter, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, and Sanofi-Aventis to create a pandemic scare in order to sell vaccines.

In January of this year, the WHO insisted it was not unduly influenced by drug companies to exaggerate the dangers of the H1N1 flu virus. The WHO subsequently appointed a committee to investigate the allegations but its credibility suffered a serious blow when it was learned Dr. John Mackenzie would be included in the investigation. Mackenzie has direct links with several vaccine and pharmaceutical companies and was influential in the WHO declaration of a level 6 pandemic in 2009. At the time, some 200 million doses of H1N1 vaccine and funding of approximately $12 million were pledged to fight the virus.

In February of 2009, Bloomberg reported that Baxter had accidentally contaminated samples with the bird flu virus. The contamination was discovered when ferrets at a lab in the Czech Republic died after being inoculated with vaccine made from the samples. The virus material was supposed to contain a seasonal flu virus and was contaminated after “human error,” according to Baxter.

Dan Even, writing for Haaretz, reported earlier this week that a report had linked the deadly Cryptococcus gatti fungus to labs in the United States and the Nes Tziona Biological Institute in Israel. “The report also linked an Israeli American scientist, Dr. Joseph Moshe, to the spread of the fungus,” writes Even.

An outbreak of the fungus killed six people in Oregon and was predicted to move into northern California and possibly farther, according to experts. “No one knows how the species got to North America or how the fungus can thrive in a temperate region,” notes Christine Dell’Amore of National Geographic News. Cryptococcus gattii is an airborne fungus native to tropical and subtropical regions, including Papua New Guinea, Australia, and parts of South America.

However, much like the H1N1 virus, the threat posed by the “killer” fungus appears to be little more than corporate media sensationalism. “At its peak, we were seeing about 36 cases per million per year, so that is a very small number,” Christina Hull, an assistant professor of medical microbiology and immunology and of biomolecular chemistry at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison, told Bloomberg Businessweek on April 30.

Joseph Moshe is currently scheduled for a court hearing on his mental status on August 24, 2010, in California.
