Oil Used as a Pretext for Corexit?

The story from Mathew Simmons (that the oil well was never capped and was still raging at full speed) has been deemed to be a misleading fraud. [Price & Makow.com fell for it. Apologies]  It looks like the purpose of his "disclosure" was to get us to believe that the major cause of death in the gulf region is from methane gas and abiotic oil, WHEN IN FACT, the cause of death is corexit.

It now looks like we do not have an oil leak at all but a tar leak.  I will be following up on this, but as you continue reading you will find good reason to believe that what has actually been leaking is from an asphalt volcano, and this could have been a normal seepage of such material.  Asphalt is consumed by microbes and does not pose a threat to the oceans nor sea life.  In fact, it provides billions of lower food-chain building blocks.

So this is what we have left to go on at the moment:

1.  Corexit is lethal.  It has been tested in the Valdez disaster and it is known to dramatically reduce the lives of all humans who work around it and breathe it.  It should never have been used again.

2.  Continue to stay away from areas along the shoreline.  Do not swim in the waters.

3.  There is a massive media illusion being fed to the public.  This has been brought to light by the following:

     -Faked pictures of the well supposedly being capped.
     -Faked pictures of the BP supposed "command center".
     -Zero callbacks have been made from the supposed BP "help center"
     -Ground cleanup crews leaving the scene within an hour of the president's departure of the area he visited.
     -Up to two feet of hauled-in sand being dumped on beaches in front of resorts during the night for                               photo ops the next day looking ok.
     -Public access denied at most beaches along with speaking with any cleanup workers, flying over the gulf region, photographing BP or workers, access to records (how much dispersants, what's in it, etc.).
     -Few people know anything about thousands of workers who have become ill working along the shores and off shore in boats.
What a fact finding mess!

4.  Very little oil has hit the Gulf coast beaches and this is after days of prevailing winds from the south.   So if the oil was ever there in the first place, dispersant or not, it would be reaching the shores now.  What has reached the shore has been mostly tar, and overall, after all this time, the amounts have been minuscule.  Some of the pictures have shown the "oil" to be reddish, others have shown it to be white.   

The latest hypothesis is this:  The Deep Horizon's rig drilled through a clay deposit and an asphalt deposit.  This means the event was way over-hyped, that there has never been a threat from a deep well that tapped into 100,000 psi pressure within the largest oil reserve ever found.  It would also mean that we DO NOT have a massive flow of toxic abiotic oil killing our oceans.  This could mean that this was a scare tactic fed to the public to cover (as a reason) for the use of the deadly corexit.

There is absolutely no reason that this area should be so shut off to visitors other than to hide from us what is really going on.  There was no reason to allow BP to control this situation from the beginning, and over 80 days before the well was supposedly "capped", without every major world leader screaming for the United States to take immediate action to stop the poisoning of the world's seas.  Unless there never really was such a threat.  I repeat, we can not trust any information received via MSM.  Photos and movies are easily faked.  

I do not know what is really happening or what the plan is.  From the looks of things currently it does resemble a hurricane Katrina scenario resulting in permanent evacuation/relocation of lower income people and a possible redevelopment of the region.  It all depends on the extent of the damage, long term and short term, of the generously applied corexit.  What we may have is a massive dumping of accumulated toxic waste directly into the workplace of hundreds of thousands unsuspecting residents of the gulf.

Other possible reasons include:

  -To cause a moratorium on offshore drilling so they can cry about a shortage later (and raise the price) .
  -To cause a cataclysmic event for use as a reason the US economy collapsed (Chernobyl proceeded the USSR collapse by about five years).
  -To spread a bio disease (depopulation).
  -To collapse the economy of the middle east which has loans of such magnitude that some of the countries need crude oil at over 100 dollars per barrel just to survive the interest.  This "black eye" the oil industry must now bare could lead to reduced demand and reliance on petroleum (not one of my hypothesis).
  -To force the world into changing energy sources.  This way they could make us rebuild out transportation system all over again, and capitalize and tax us at every stage of the way.  (I'd like to see the day!)
  -To change the climate of the East Coast of the US and/or England, Holland, Netherlands, etc.
  -To change the gulf stream currents.
  -To give reason for "emergency intervention", coming in the form of military takeover (aka Haiti), this time on a larger scale including Cuba and all the islands of the gulf region.
 
As part of a larger world plan; there are now confirmed oil leaks in China, the North Sea, the Red Sea and now a pipeline rupture sending 840,000 gallons into the Kalamazoo River in Michigan.

"Why are oil spills suddenly occurring constantly, all over the world? Just this year, the environment has taken an unprecedented beating, from the oil industry alone."  Meta Ocean Research

In my last update I mentioned that a second well has been leaking in the gulf near the Deepwater Horizon, and the size of the leak was only mentioned as "smaller than the Deepwater Horizon's leak".  I am seeing a mass of confusion coming together in the coming days, and years from now they may be still denying that BP's nightmarish accident was the major cause of the disasters of the seas as seen from a world-wide perspective. 

Are these latest incidents for the creation of "plausible deniability" or a much larger plan?

The search for the truth never stops.  I hope this helps you in your search for it.

i'm still reading this - http://www.henrymakow.com/oil_spill_exaggerated_pretext.html with comments.
and i have a question... did someone in this "company of good boys" understands, that corexit can destroy not only gulf region? i'm from russia (moscow)... in russia we have very strange weather now... and i'm collecting new medicine set for my second work (rescue service), because i'm already waiting for toxic rains, and more problems with pathogenic flora (we have it now, because of the changed weather)
we know, that the problem "can be solved with bomb" (some persons think, that it can be solved, but... i can say, thay are not right). when they want to do that? didn't they understand, that the planet is organism... system...
one more problem - oil in orinoko. here in moscow i was working in one company, where i saw the information about vtb-bank (russia) and some bank in venezuela... a lot of money went on its accounts from russia for new work - oil near orinoko river. now i can see two variants of future: 1) orinoko will be safe - nobody will touch it after the accident (it's good variant) 2) no oil - need new place - going to orinoko (it's... the end). as i know (don't ask how, please) all the oil on the planet can't finish now... it's like a blood - restoring after some time... but if someone take the blood from liver... orinoko - "liver" of the planet (one of few)...

Ken has focused on the corexit anomaly, in support of which I would add

first -- What caused the drilling rig to disappear? IHMO, it is to this disaster what the disappearance of Building 7 was to 9-11. The Deepwater rig had a huge, and rigid and stable, underwater superstructure -- basically two large underwater pontoons for flotation, braced with a superstructure of rigid steel "box columns." As we learned in 9-11, open air fires do not get hot enough to cause steel to melt. So how did the underwater steel of the rig melt, and give way? How did a fire, above the waterline, cause the rig's underwater steel superstructure to disappear? It fire didn't do it, then what caused the underwater steel superstructure to go soft, and sink? After it sank, its name, "The Deepwater Horizon," became too prophetic for words. (Wikipedia has some nice pictures.) It was built in 2001. One wonders, if the owner who named it in 2001 knew of its destiny advance, or is this just "yet another coincidence?"

second -- What is with the total scarcity of reliable information on the method used for well construction (using standard industry materials) and soil drilling data (which should be public information)? If the driller's intentions were honorable, dissemination of his use of standard industry methods would cause no "proprietary harm" to BP, or the driller, or anyone else. What was the diameter of the raw bore hole, produced by the drilling bit? What was the inside diameter and wall thickness of the casing pipe? What lengths did it come in? How many pieces or segments were there to each length, and how were the segments inserted into the bore, reassembled into a circular section (bolted, snap fit, or welded, ...) and how were new lengths attached to the existing casing? Why wasn't the annulus between the casing pipe and bore hole cemented shut as each new length of the casing pipe was added, to prevent it from slipping down as the hole is drilled? I've heard of casing pipe diameters of 21" and 7", both from Adm. Thad Allen. What the hell? (Thad Allen is to this Deepwater Horizon disaster, what Sara Palin is to the Tea Party. Both are photogenic, both have drone-like sexy voices, and both appear have photographic memories. And both are also apparently clueless -- suggesting that they are under mind control.)

When you are drilling a well, the entire effort is oriented at producing and gaining control of a stable well casing. The failures of this well venture into planned territory.

Albeit asymmetric in character, it is an act of warfare against a nation. It comes from the Pentagon-Wall St. complex.

In response to, "Oil Used as a Pretext for Corexit?" by Ken Price,
I refer you to the following...
"REPORT FROM IRON MOUNTAIN: On The Possibility and Desirability Of Peace"
http://www.projectcamelot.org/Report_from_Iron_Mountain.pdf

The above 1967 Report was compiled by a secretive, non-official Government Committee of 15 hand picked men, from a variety of disciplines. The goal of the Committee was to find, "(Covert) Substitutes For The (Overt) Functions Of War." Of particular interest is # "2," under the heading... "Models," Sub-Heading "Political." Recommended - "a) An omnipresent, virtually omnipotent international police force. b) An established and recognized extraterrestrial menace. c) Massive global environmental pollution. d) Fictitious alternate enemies..."

Also recommended as a substitute for the functions of (Overt) war, under the heading... "Sociological: Control Function... a) Programs generally derived from the Peace Corps model. b) A modern sophisticated form of slavery. Motivational function. a) Intensified environmental pollution. b) New religions or other mythologies. c) Socially oriented blood games. d) Combination forms..."

Under "Ecological," the Iron Mountain Boys recommend, "a) A comprehensive program of applied eugenics." And under "Scientific," they suggest, "The secondary requirements of the space research, social welfare, and/or eugenics programs." The "Iron Mountain Boys," euphemistically refer to their deliberations as, "peace planning."

So, what does a people do, when agencies & personages from within and outside their own government, conspire to degrade the environment intentionally as a pretext for government power and Corporate profit?


Joe said (July 29, 2010):

After reading this article I bring to your attention yet another oil spill which occurred on July 13th, however this time directly in Canada, in the St. Lawrence Seaway. The "shipping accident caused up to 200 tonnes of bunker oil to gush into the St. Lawrence Seaway and had cleanup crews working Tuesday to contain the mess". "The ship — which belongs to Canada Steamship Lines, the family company of former prime minister Paul Martin — spilled between 50 and 200 tonnes from its punctured fuel tank". Frankly, this follow-up Canadian Press story was rather delusive:

"Given the rapid response, the spill was contained within the canal above the lock, with no oil entering the lock or moving downstream," the corporation said in a statement.

"No impact has been observed on municipal water intakes within the surrounding municipalities."

"Yvan Tremblay, the emergency team's regional director, said it was unclear how much fuel poured out of the ship, the 200-metre-long Richelieu."

First we are told 50-200 tonnes were spilled, so how is it that in the same article they are "unclear" about the amount of fuel poured out? Furthermore, why are we given this false sense of safety when "Neighbouring towns were alerted to monitor their potable water supply".?

'm a little sorry for not writing this earlier to you. It is about Matt Simmons.

I've 'known' this guy for some time. He is one of the originators of the Peak Oil Myth. Peak Oil is the first 'conspiracy theory' I ever fell for, seven or eight years back.

It was because of Mike Ruppert. You remember him? He did some powerful work. His film, 'truth and lies of 9/11' was my first introduction into 'deep politics'.

At the time Ruppert was all about peak oil. Now, of course, we know Peak Oil is the stupidest of hoaxes. Not only because oil is probably abiotic, but more importantly because it is a disgrace we ever used oil on this scale anyway.

Oil prices have been absurdly high the last few years. Of course the rationale now is 'Peak Oil'. But even if oil was getting scarcer because production peaked, it is absurd to claim this leads to prices 4 times higher then they were just three years ago. Let alone 150 dollar per barrel as it was 12 months back. The reason for this sudden price hike was speculation with TARP funds. Goldman Sachs was implicated. It remains to be seen why our masters need such expensive oil. Of course it is good for their oil is energy racket and it puts serious pressure on food prices. But it is also highly destabilizing. So maybe it is a part of their 'end game'.

Webster Tarpley made a very important point. He states Wall Street needs expensive oil to create a market with sufficient liquidity to soak up all the trillions of dollars they have printed and are going to print without destroying the dollar (immediately). When money circulation (money circulation is at all time low, the money supply is function of amount and velocity) picks up again all this new funny money would have a disastrous effect on the dollar but with an exploding oil market these dollars would have a place to go.

Be that as it may, Matt Simmons at the time was the big Oil insider. This big 'management consultant'. He was the Al Gore of Peak Oil, showing his graphs in powerpoint presentations in boardrooms all over the place. Together with Campbell and Ruppert he was one of the great Peak Oil prophets.

In other words: I was really surprised to see him get all this airtime during the spill. Because he is so totally full of shit and quite clearly a messenger of the people we are exposing.

It's too bad I didn't inform you about him earlier, it might have helped putting his 'info' into perspective.

Interesting, exaggerated perhaps. Wayne Madsen has backed off his "Mt. Everest" sized cavern theory. We just do not know.
What we do know is that BP, the US Media and the USG (for all intents and purposes) are lying about most of this 24/7.

This link would tend to refute or explain what the above story claims. Dispersants have hidden the oil, that is the simple answer to the question of where the oil is.

I am just on a plane to southern Michigan, and I find another huge oil spill has happened just an hour's drive from my home!

What is going on here?!?!
