Is Obama trying to shut down the oil industry?

SWAT TEAMS TO BE DISPATCHED TO “INSPECT ALL PLATFORMS AND RIGS”

by Sharon Rondeau

The Deepwater Horizon oil spill occurred about 50 miles from the Louisiana coast

(May 3, 2010) — An explosion on an oil rig on April 22, 2010 which resulted in a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has resulted in the expansion of the Department of the Interior and a statement from the putative president indicating that SWAT teams, which are normally used in apprehending criminals and protecting foreign dignitaries, will be dispatched to the scene:

Earlier today, DHS Secretary Napolitano announced that this incident is of national significance and the Department of Interior has announced that they will be sending SWAT teams to the Gulf to inspect all platforms and rigs. And I have ordered the Secretaries of Interior and Homeland Security as well as Administrator Lisa Jackson of the Environmental Protection Agency to visit the site on Friday to ensure that BP and the entire U.S. government is doing everything possible, not just to respond to this incident, but also to determine its cause. And I’ve been in contact with all the governors of the states that may be affected by this accident.

According to a report today, members of the Obama regime are predicting a catastrophic fallout from the event, and speculation as to whether or not any offshore drilling, which had been “approved” by Obama on the Atlantic coast, will occur at all.  On March 31, Obama had stated that an increase in offshore oil drilling would help “short-term economic needs.”  Others who might have supported such measures are also reconsidering.

However, a report also from today states that the oil spill, while severe, is about 1/50 of the size of the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill.

Originally the Coast Guard stated that there was no oil leaking from the rig following the explosion.  A report dated April 27, 2010 stated that 42,000 gallons of oil each day are leaking into the Gulf of Mexico.

Obama has termed the accident the “BP oil spill.”  White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said, “We will keep a boot on the throat of BP.”  Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar was also reported as having said, “Our job is to keep the boot on the neck of BP.”

While Obama blames BP for the spill, BP has stated that the equipment failure which led to the oil spill was the property of a company named Transocean.

The Department of the Interior website contains a subpage on the National Park Service, which states that SWAT teams for the United States Park Police have been in existence since 1975 and that they engage in training, provide escorts for foreign dignitaries, apprehend criminals, and seek “new innovative ways to safely and effectively protect the visitors to our National Treasures.”  There is nothing which might suggest that SWAT teams might have the expertise to inspect oil rigs or offshore equipment.

A statement from the Department of the Interior today on the oil spill reads:

The National Response Team (NRT), an organization of 16 federal departments and agencies responsible for coordinating emergency preparedness and response to oil and hazardous substance pollution incidents was quickly activated and a coordinated group of federal partners-including the United States Coast Guard, Departments of Homeland Security, Commerce, Interior and the Environmental Protection Agency-immediately began directing and overseeing BP’s response.

On April 30, the Department of the Interior created a new department named the “Outer Continental Shelf Safety Oversight Board,” which “will provide recommendations regarding interim measures that may enhance OCS safety and recommendations for improving and strengthening the Department’s overall management, regulation and oversight of OCS operations.”

The Department then made the following statement:

In this eleventh day of the massive, coordinated response to the Deepwater Horizon incident, we must continue to do everything we can to oversee and support BP’s efforts to stop and clean up the oil that is spilling from the well head. At the same time, we must take aggressive action to verify the safety of other offshore oil and gas operations, further tighten our oversight of industry’s practices, and take a careful look at all the questions that this disaster is raising.

    Look no further then Rep. Maxine Waters who said to the oil executives that” government will just take you over”

    I smiled thinking where would the government get the money to buy out the companies. But, she knew the game plan and it’s well under way.

    They will not have the money but will use brute political Marxism to take over more and more of private property, i.e. stockholder’s investments.

    Look what happened to the bondholders at Chrysler. They got screwed out of all their investment monies.

    Palin is an Illuminati, too — just playing the “devout Christian conservative” role they gave her. She’ll pay for it on Judgement Day.

    They’re all in this together, to overthrow all governments of the world so the anti-christ (Obama) can rule on behalf of the United Nations, the Bilderbergers & their Bank for International Settlements, and Lucifer (along with his demons / fallen angels).

    You can see her giving the Satanic hand sign at this website: http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Religions/Wicca%20&%20Witchcraft/signs_of_satan.htm

    I saw somebody say that if there was oil all over the water there would be less hurricanes because of wind and heat or stuff like that. But the spill has to get real big before that works. So, are they saving New Orleans and all the Mobamba voters, or was it just an accident? Probably it was just an accident. But not fixing it faster is on purpose.

    This whole scenario was created to damage Palin and her domestic drilling agenda which she has been a advocate of. The Obama Administration is afraid of her and will do anything to undermine her in case she runs for President. Think about it.

    It just so happens BO’s Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel stated not too long ago, “Never let a crisis go to waste”.
    I’m not surprised at the number of events since the usurper took office. I fear what tomorrow will bring during our long wait leading up to November elections. My greatest fear is BO will create another crisis for the sole purpose of suspending them. He is fully aware his minions within the House will be demolished. God help us!

    There is already speculation that this was either a terrorist attack or sabotage right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook. it wouldn’t be the first time that the Progressives/Socialists/Marxists created a crisis to advance their agenda.

    Well since you mentioned it..I received a newsletter from Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty website just this morning. S. 773 is now a true threat to the internet. “Cyber Security Act of 2009″ introduced by Jay Rockefeller (D) and Obama is pushing forward secretly to shut down the Internet.

    There is a petition on this site to stop the massive power grab of Free Speech.

    I would not put it past Mobamba. He is AFRICAN at heart and that is his real problem. African presidents are at the top of the pyramid, while American presidents, the power runs downhill TO THEM from the people.

    Mobamba has already got the cars, banks, and hospitals. Now he probably wants the oil companies too. He will have some kind Oil Company Bailout and Reform Program.

    1. andy borowitz is a comic. what he wrote was satire. fiction.

    2. as an aside, there is nothing wrong with shorting anything that is overpriced. demonizing shortsellers is a VERY, VERY DANGEROUS thing to do. they are the ONLY thing that keeps gov’t's from creating havoc with their policies. if a gov’t borrows a mountain of debt, you’d better hope the short sellers expose it!

    Goldman Sachs Reveals it Shorted Gulf of Mexico
    May 3rd, 2010
    Huffington Post
    by Andy Borowitz

    NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report) – In what is looming as another public relations predicament for Goldman Sachs, the banking giant admitted today that it made “a substantial financial bet against the Gulf of Mexico” one day before the sinking of an oil rig in that body of water.

    The new revelations came to light after government investigators turned up new emails from Goldman employee Fabrice “Fabulous Fab” Tourre in which he bragged to a girlfriend that the firm was taking a “big short” position on the Gulf.

    “One oil rig goes down and we’re going to be rolling in dough,” Mr. Tourre wrote in one email. “Suck it, fishies and birdies!”

    Comment by American Grand Jury:

    This represents what is wrong with society and our culture today. It is all about money, greed and cheating. Obama and Goldman Sachs take their marching orders from the same “evil” globalist bankers that believe this is how you enslave a Nation and turn it into a New World Order.

    This was sabotage in order to pull more oil out of Brazil and less from the USA. Brazil is absolutely bankrupt – so is Spain -and Greece is Solvent. Greece is being used as a diversion for bankrupt Rothschild/Banco Santander who are heavily invested in these two countries Brazil/Spain which are going bankrupt with the U.K. Green Energy is NON-PRODUCTIVITY and the Rothschild Banking Cartel BLEW IT!

    This sabotage is to benefit the BRITISH. Obama has surreptitiously invested America’s money with Cuba and Soros in drilling NEW oil platforms in Brazil to potentially bolster the bottom line for Rothschild/Santander.

    There are many Rothschild/Rhodes trained operatives in the White House approx 10.

    Reason we are going through all of this disconnected financial implosion is because it is the British playing the Americans from both ends.

    I commented on another site that this is the next industry that will be nationalized. O will denounce the oil industry as “careless” or “irresponsible”; it requires government “oversight” to ensure a spill like the one in the Gulf never occurs again. He will either shut it down completely or just seize control. If it is the latter (more likely), the displaced employees will be hired at twice the salary to do what they were doing in the private sector.

    Once the government is in control, look for gas prices to skyrocket. It will then become a revenue stream to help finance Congress’ out of control spending. We can forget about any new drilling that he feigned he would support. That is a pipe dream and always has been.

    Straight out of the Chavez playbook. Next up: The media.

    God help us.

    Isn’t it amazing that British Petroleum, which got a big Libyan oil contract due to Mr. Obama releasing the non-sick Lockerbie bomber, just happens after Obama “says he will open oil exploration” which is no exploration at all, to blow up an offshore oil well it was drilling.

    This was a deliberate act of sabotage by the cartels to shut down American oil security, putting it back into BP oil wells enriching Libya and OPEC.

    Do not be fooled oh ignorant kidlings, these false flags and sabos happen all of the time.

    Obama sent SWAT to prevent any other investigators and to set things up for nationalized oil, another serfdom marxofascist takeover.
    He is petty and vindictive, he needed to mock “drill baby drill” and to stick us with $10/gallon gas while enriching Qadafi and BP and take over yet more American industry.
    At some point Obama, you’ve seized enough industry, you fascist!
    Qadafi…he just gave him $2.5 million of YOUR dollars last year!! Qadafi is a terrorist! He also gave Soros billions for offshore drilling off Venezuela.

    Obama hates America and is doing everything he can get away with to destroy it.
    He’s taking over resources to pay off his thefts..oil, fishing, water, even more federal lands he will sell off. WE pay.

    Perhaps a more discerning view is in order from http://www.globalanalysis.net
    excerpt – THE GULF OF MEXICO OIL PLATFORM EXPLOSION:
    CEMENT CASING THAT BLEW WAS INSTALLED BY HALLIBURTON :
    MORE U.S./DVD SABOTAGE AGAINST THE BRITISH? YES…
    Just as our suspicions from the outset over the Polish air catastrophe at Smolensk proved to be justified, so do we and many others smell a giant rat concerning the explosion and fire at the BP oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico. And the face of the rat bears an uncanny resemblance to the ugly physiognomy of George Bush Sr.

    • UPDATE, 3RD MAY 2010: Anecdotal evidence is indeed emerging pointing to sabotage. The lack of the usual press-frenzy interviews with survivors is also suspicious. But the main reason that we suspect sabotage is that this operation has coincided with key developments behind the scenes involving the British which has severely inconvenienced the evil American criminal kleptocracy. Seen in that light, this is a blatant sabotage operation tantamount to an act of war against the UK perpetrated as a revenge attack for the basest of motives. Unfortunately at this juncture we can’t elaborate on what has been going on behind the scenes, but you can draw your own conclusions.

    Further indications that this is a deliberate, malicious revenge operation against British interests (a very dangerous departure, if true, as there is such a phenomenon as ‘tit for tat’) are evident in the harsh, mafioso-style language emerging from the throats of US officials. For instance, Mr Kenneth Salazar, US Interior Secretary (i.e., the ‘Minister of the Interior’) is reported as having stated on 2nd May: ‘Our job basically is to keep the boot on the neck of [BP] to carry out the responsibilities they have both under the law and contractually to move forward and stop this spill’, even though it was almost certrainly a consequence of a revenge sabotage and provocation operation perpetrated by disaffected rogue revolutionary cadres within the US structures working to the CIA/DVD agenda.

    For starters, the cement casing that blew up was installed by the corrupt Cheney-CIA operation called Halliburton. Apparently this is the second time in a year that a Halliburton casing has failed catastrophically on an oil rig.

    It may be recalled from our earlier coverage that Halliburton operates a huge parasitical buying and ordering department within the Central Intelligence Agency and a parallel parasitical department inside the Pentagon, and that both these entities scam the opposite host on a routine basis, at the expense of the US taxpayer. Whether this unbelievable duplicated CIA scandal was investigated and wound up after we and others exposed it [see report dated 26th May 2008, excerpted below: ARCHIVE], we don’t know. What we do recall is it became the subject of a Grand Jury investigation.

    Horror stories associated with this colossal corruption op. included the faulty Halliburton gun manufactured in Saudi Arabia that routinely exploded and killed the gunner, which Halliburton continued selling long after the accidents in question (plus the despicably amoral cover-up of the reason for the gun operators’ deaths); and the notorious delivery of 1,000 toasters which could be bought for $19.99 at any hardware store, but which Halliburton invoiced to the Pentagon for $1,891 a piece, on the spurious pretext that they were manufactured from a special metal.

    Now the oil rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico at 10:pm CST on 20th April 2010, was ‘Deepwater Horizon’ owned by Transocean Limited, based in Zug, Switzerland, with its principal office located in HOUSTON, Texas, and other offices in Zug and Vernier, Switzerland, and in George Town, Cayman Islands. Zug is where Marc Rich, real name HANS BRAND, the long-range Deutsche Verteidigungs Dienst (DVD) operative and East-West intermediary, is based.

    The explosion occurred on the very same day that Transocean shares started trading in Europe, as is confirmed by the following Press Release dated 20th April 2010:

    http://www.deepwater.com/fw/main/News-748.html?c=113031&;p=irol-news&nyo=0

    ‘ZUG, SWITZERLAND, Apr 20, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — Transocean Ltd. (NYSE: RIG) (SIX: RIGN), the world’s largest offshore drilling contractor, announced that its shares will begin trading on SIX Swiss Exchange (“SIX”) today under the symbol (RIGN). Transocean’s shares also trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol (RIG)’.

    UPDATE:
    GOLDMAN SACHS TOOK A SHORT POSITION ON GULF OF MEXICO. THEY MUST HAVE HAD PRIOR INSIDE INFORMATION ON THE INTENDED RIG SABOTAGE OPERATION AGAINST THE BRITISH. WHICH THEY KNEW ABOUT BECAUSE THEY’RE THE MAIN TARGET. NOTICE THAT THE FRENCH INTELLIGENCE OPERATIVE TOURRE WAS BRIEFED ABOUT THE SABOTAGE IN ADVANCE. SPLENDID CHANCE TO MAKE MONEY WHILE THRASHING THE BRITS. See above.

    The following New York report waffles about another ‘public relations disaster’. NO! Another example of BRAZEN ARROGANCE AND DEFIANCE OF THE RULE OF LAW, plus an ‘in-your-face’ exploitation of INSIDE INFORMATION ABOUT THE INTENDED OIL RIG SABOTAGE.

    And why would Goldman do that? Because it’s at the WRONG END of the financial re-setting that’s taking place behind the scenes, and it’s being brought to heel, an experience it has never known before and which, in its pride and arrogance, it thought could never happen. BUT IT HAS.

    NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report): In what is looming as another public relations predicament for Goldman Sachs, the banking giant admitted today that it made “a substantial financial bet against the Gulf of Mexico” one day before the sinking of an oil rig in that body of water.

    The new revelations came to light after government investigators turned up new emails from Goldman employee Fabrice “Fabulous Fab” Tourre in which he bragged to a girlfriend that the firm was taking a “big short” position on the Gulf [of Mexico].

    Following this sabotage, Barack Obama reversed course on offshore drilling, BARELY THREE WEEKS after he had publicly announced a revised domestic energy policy lifting the longstanding moratorium on certain offshore drilling. Specifically, on 30th April 2010, the controlled US ‘State News Agency’ Associated Press reported:

    ‘A top adviser to President Barack Obama said Friday that no new oil drilling would be authorized until authorities learn what caused the explosion of the rig Deepwater Horizon. David Axelrod told ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ that ‘no additional drilling has been authorized and none will until we find out what has happened here’. Obama recently lifted a drilling moratorium for many offshore areas, including the Atlantic and Gulf areas’.

    I was thinking this exact theme for the past few days, and I do believe Kenya Boy will try to take over the oil industry. I really think he will. I can’t stand Robert Gibbs and that fake smile with his “boots on the throat of BP”. They are afraid people will sue the government for their inaction….a whole 12 days to respond to this disaster, and Kenya Boy had to have a party first!!!!!!!! If he does try to take over the oil industry, it will start WWIII imho. We have GOT to get Kenya Boy out of the WH. Every time you turn around it’s some major crisis….and many of them are done deliberately….look at the attempted bombing in NY…PERHAPS to keep people from going to Dr. Manning’s Columbia Trial. There’s always something. This has GOT to STOP NOW!!!!!
