Oil Spill in Alaska Rachel Maddow…The US Plays the Oil Card…then & now…

Posted on 2012 05, 02 by rockingjude

“The trouble with this country is that you can’t win an election without the oil bloc, and you can’t govern with it.”

 – Franklin D. Roosevelt

On this week’s Solari Report, I will be speaking with the person I most trust to help us understand events in the Gulf and its meaning around the globe, veteran reporter James R. (“Jim”) Norman, author of The Oil Card: Global Economic Warfare in the 21st Century.

Jim joined us on the Solari Report in March to discuss oil’s role in global economic warfare. It was one of the most fascinating Solari Reports to date. I encourage you to listen to it. It’s great background for understanding current events

  • If there is something growing faster than the plumes of oil spreading across the Gulf of Mexico, it is the unanswered questions about what is happening and what it means to all concerned:
  • Was the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig an accident or is there a deeper story?
  • What will the impact be on Gulf of Mexico – on the ocean, on the Southern states, their wetlands, Mexico, Cuba, the Caribbean, and their wildlife, people and economy?
  • How long could the spill continue? What is the worst-case scenario? How far and wide could the oil go? What about related gas deposits?
  • How does the ecosystem normally deal with oil spills and seepages? What are the most effective methods of addressing them? How long does it take for an ecosystem to deal with a spill on its own?
  • Why were BP and its contractors not prepared to handle this event?
  • What is BP’s contractual relationship with the US government. Who owns what and how much? Who is liable for what?
  • Why did the federal regulators not require adequate contingency and disaster recovery plans?
  • Why did BP appoint as its ombudsman a former General Counsel of the CIA who is on the record as allowing false affidavits to be filed in federal court?
  • Why such remarkable similarities between the 1979 Gulf of Mexico oil spill and the current one?
  • Why did Goldman Sachs sell such a large position in BP shares shortly before the spill? What about other unusual stock sales and transactions prior to the spill?
  • Why has the response been so inadequate? Why have the state governors allowed BP and the federal government to control when the response appears inadequate?
  • Why are chemical dispersants being used on the spill? What will the impact be on wetlands and on rainfall throughout North America?
  • Could there be any truth to the rumors that the spill is helping the oil companies keep oil prices high and assert control of the wetlands along the gulf coast for future drilling?
  • What happens if BP cuts its dividend or declares bankruptcy? Shareholders have lost $95 billion in wealth and could lose another $95 billion. Who will get hurt? Could the US subsidiaries be spilt out from the rest of the company?
  • What does this mean for Exxon, Shell and the other companies in the oil and oil services industries.
  • Is the NWO going to use the spill as an excuse to railroad a cap and trade bill through Congress?
  • What is the impact of the spill going to be on the Anglo-American alliance?
  • How do we protect our homes and our assets from this type of “disaster capitalism?”
  • What can we change so that this can never happen again?

Chemical measurements confirm official estimate of 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill rate…

Posted on 2012 01, 09 by rockingjude

By combining detailed chemical measurements in the deep ocean, in the oil slick, and in the air, NOAA scientists and academic colleagues have independently estimated how fast gases and oil were leaking during the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The new chemistry-based spill rate estimate, an average of 11,130 tons of gas and oil compounds per day, is close to the official average leak rate estimate of about 11,350 tons of gas and oil per day (equal to about 59,200 barrels of liquid oil per day).

“This study uses the available chemical data to give a better understanding of what went where, and why,” said Thomas Ryerson, Ph.D., a NOAA research chemist and lead author of the study. “The surface and subsurface measurements and analysis provided by our university colleagues were key to this unprecedented approach to understanding an oil spill.”

The NOAA-led team did not rely on any of the data used in the original estimates, such as video flow analysis, pipe diameter and fluid flow calculations. “We analyzed a completely separate set of chemical measurements, which independently led us to a very similar leak estimate,” Ryerson said.

The new study, Chemical data quantify Deepwater Horizon hydrocarbon flow rate and environmental distribution, was published online today in the journal .

The new analysis follows on another NOAA-led study published last year, in which Ryerson and colleagues estimated a lower limit to the Deepwater Horizon leak rate based on two days of airborne data collected during the spill and the  of the reservoir gas and oil determined before the spill. The new analysis adds in many other sources of data, including subsurface and surface samples taken during six weeks of the spill and including a direct measure of the makeup of the gas and oil actually leaking into the Gulf.

Ryerson and his colleagues found that the leaking gas and oil quickly separated into three major pools: the underwater plume of droplets about 3,300-4,300 feet below the surface, the visible surface slick, and an airborne plume of evaporating chemicals. Each pool had a very different chemical composition.

 

The underwater plume was enhanced in gases known to dissolve readily in water, the team found. This included essentially all of the lightweight methane (natural gas) and benzene (a known carcinogen) present in the spilling reservoir fluid. The surface  was dominated by the heaviest and stickiest components, which neither dissolved in seawater nor evaporated into the air. And the airborne plume of chemicals contained a wide mixture of intermediate-weight components of the spilled gas and oil.

The visible surface slick represented about 15 percent of the total leaked gas and oil; the airborne plume accounted for about another 7 percent. About 36 percent remained in a deep underwater plume, and 17 percent was recovered directly to the surface through a marine riser. The location of the balance, about 25 percent of the total, is not directly accounted for by the chemical data.

This information about the transport and fate of different components of the spilled gas and oil mixture could help resource managers and others trying to understand environmental exposure levels.

The chemical measurements made from mid-May through June showed that the composition of the atmospheric plume changed very little, suggesting little change in the makeup of the leaking gas and oil.

The team of researchers also used the detailed chemical measurements to calculate how much  and , in total, was spilling from the breached reservoir deep underwater.

The new chemistry-based estimate of 11,130 tons per day has an estimated range of 8,900 to 13,300 tons per day. By comparison, the official estimated range was 10,000 to 12,700 tons per day.

New Exposé of Big Oil’s Role in the Iraq War…

Posted on 2011 04, 25 by rockingjude

by James Ridgeway

When it was  suggested the war in Iraq was about oil, Tony Blair,then the British prime minister, had this to say on February 6,2003

“Let me just deal with the oil thing because… the oil conspiracy theory is honestly one of the most absurd when you analyse it. The fact is that, if the oil that Iraq has were our concern, I mean we could probably cut a deal with Saddam tomorrow in relation to the oil. It’s not the oil that is the issue, it is the weapons…”

In fact, as I and numerous others, have reported on many occasions before, both during and after the war, oil was a principal if not the principal reason, for going to war. The reason for thinking this comes from any reading of oil history in the Middle East. The  modern industry began in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq), which today probably boasts the largest reserves in the world. Current knowledge of oil and the war in large part comes from  the work of a  researcher in the UK named Greg Muttitt. Among other things, Muttitt has had close contacts with the Iraq oil workers union. Now Muttitt has written a book–released in Britain and India this week, called Fuel on the Fire–that makes crystal clear  the role of big oil. His research had turned up hundreds of pages of heretofore secret documents and is further backed up by interviews with executives of the international oil companies.

Speculators, Cartels and Myths of Scarcity: How War Pushes up the Price of Oil…

Posted on 2011 04, 05 by rockingjude
Global Research, April 3, 2011
BY Dean Henderson:

Last week, as if to justify his Libyan crusade, President Obama echoed the prevailing “peak oil” myth, stating that “we must accept the new reality that from here on out, demand for oil will always exceed supply”.  It was music to the ears of the Rockefeller/Rothschild energy cartel and tax-dodger oil traders in Zug, Switzerland alike.  Both know full well that oil companies pay around $18/barrel to get crude out of the ground.

Big Oil rings up its usual quarterly record profit, speculators led by Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley tack on another $50/barrel and people get gouged at the gas pump.  Governments “tighten their belts”, economies contract and the myth of scarcity (root word: scare) encourages a race to the bottom for the global masses, alongside an historical concentration of power and wealth by the well-fed and fueled global elite.

A day after Obama’s endorsement of concentrated corporate power and casino capitalism, the US Department of Energy reported that the main US oil stage depot at Cushing, Oklahoma was holding 41.9 million barrels of crude oil, very near its capacity of 44 million barrels.  In other words, the US is awash in crude oil.

Here in South Dakota, the USDA announced that farmers plan to plant an additional 850,000 acres of corn- the most since 1931.  According to a March 10 bulletin from USDA, Brazil’s corn crop is 2 million tons higher than last year.  Yet corn futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange trade at record prices.

According to the same USDA report, “U.S. wheat ending stocks for 2010/11 are projected higher this month on reduced export prospects. Projected exports are lowered 25 million bushels with increased world supplies of high quality wheat, particularly in Australia, and a slower-than-expected pace of U.S. shipments heading into the final quarter of the wheat marketing year.”  Yet wheat futures hover near record highs.

There is nothing alarming in the report about supplies of beef, poultry, eggs, milk, sugar or rice either.  Yet food prices continue to skyrocket.

The global elite know that both food and energy are paramount to life. Control over these two most basic needs means control over people.

Illuminati Cards Show Japans Earthquake Was Planned?…

Posted on 2011 03, 20 by rockingjude

~was looking for this~jude~revised as most info was deleted ((

Game “Combined Disaster” card also support the claim of Benjamin Fulford , the horrific earthquake weapon HAARP which attacked Japan on March 11, 2011 resulting in 10 meter long tsunamis along much of Japan’s coast line came from rogue elements of the U.S. government located in underground bases in New Mexico and Nevada. read it all

March 1990 Steve Jackson of Steve Jackson Games was raided by Secret Service, and his work confiscated. More than three years later Steve was awarded by Federal Judge damages and attorney’s fees for reckless, careless and illegal raid.

In 1995 Steve Jackson published a card game called “Illuminate, The Game of Conspiracy”. I can’t tell you how eerie it is to watch the video I made, as these cards were designed back in the 80′s and the pictures for the “conspiracy GAME’ are accurate depictions of events, and disasters to date!

One could go as far as saying that Steve Jackson inadvertently predicted these events via his playing cards.

There are 400 in the deck . . . I wonder which card will be next?

Likewise another card, issued well before 9-11, showed the twin towers being taken down is one of the most shocking of all, especially in light of the fact that this game first hit the specialty stores in 1995! How in the world did Steve Jackson know that the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center were going to be attacked? In fact, this card accurately depicted the World Trade Center attack in great detail. This card accurately depicts several facts of 9/11 — on cards created all the way back in 1995! The picture accurately depicts:

* That one tower was going to be struck first; this picture accurately depicts the moments between the first tower strike and the second.

* The card accurately depicts that the place of impact is some distance from the top of the twin towers. The plane hit in this approximate area of the first tower. How in the world could Steve Jackson know this fact?

* The card accurately depicts the Illuminati leadership by showing on the building to the extreme left of the card the Illuminist pyramid with an all-seeing eye in the middle.

* The caption at the top properly identifies the perpetrators of the attack as “terrorists”

30 FACTS EVIDENCING THE ROTHSCHILD LEAGUE OF BANKERS PLANNED THE GULF OIL CRISIS

by

Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz and Sherri Kane

This article explains what is really happening in the Gulf of Mexico, who is really responsible for the explosion, and how the devastation serves investment bankers who sway stocks, create markets, and planned this crisis, among a series of catastrophies, to advance geopolitical and financial agendas for their New World Order.

Introduction

WAR has been declared against We The People. Yet, there is no country or military present to defend us.

Covert infiltrations and corruptions in governments by the “Rothschild League” of bankers and “private equity investors” now poison our bodies, minds, and planet. Yet, appropriate military and/or militia defenses are prohibited.

Crisis-capitalists are massacring us and our environment petrochemically. They have deployed propaganda—mass media deception—to camouflage their real intentions and vast destruction.

The air we breathe, food we eat, and water we drink, has been polluted to deliver profitable diseases and depopulation, simulating a “scorched earth policy” of war.

Citizen’s arrests, grand jury investigations, criminal indictments, and war crimes prosecutions are urgently needed, yet forbidden.

Generalized fear, depression, fatigue, and apathy is incapacitating our defenses, aiding the adversaries, and predisposing us to diseases and early deaths.

Based on the following irrefutable facts, the so-called “accidental explosion” in the Gulf is a Transocean/Halliburton/British Petroleum/Goldman-Sachs attack—the latest in a series of unspeakable war crimes perpetrated by Anglo-American State of “Rothschild League” bankers.

BP Gulf Oil Spill: ‘Biggest cover-up in US history’ …

Posted on 2011 01, 10 by rockingjude

Global Research, January 5, 2011

Despite BP having capped its well in the Gulf of Mexico in July, the health-related after-effects of the disaster subsist.

Gulf Coast residents and BP cleanup workers have linked the source of certain illnesses to chemicals present in BP’s oil and the toxic dispersants used to sink it – illnesses that appear to be both spreading and worsening.

Dr. Rodney Soto, a medical doctor in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, has been testing and treating patients with high levels of oil-related chemicals in their blood stream. These are commonly referred to as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s). Anthropogenic VOC’s from BP’s oil disaster are toxic and have negative chronic health effects.

Dr. Soto is finding disconcertingly consistent and high levels of toxic chemicals in every one of the patients he is testing.

“I’m regularly finding between five and seven VOCs in my patients,” Dr. Soto told Al Jazeera. “These patients include people not directly involved in the oil clean-up, as well as residents that do not live right on the coast. These are clearly related to the oil disaster.”

Chronic health effects

Illuminati – It’s just a game…or is it…

Illuminati – It’s just a game from Godmorgon Sverige on Vimeo.

by Godmorgon Sverige

The “illuminati” card game, created by Steve Jackson in 1995 predicted the future pretty accurate. Just as George Orwell did in 1948 with his book “1984″.

We have been exposed to wake-up calls since the Bible was written.

We just need to listen.

Open our eyes and unite.

Peace and love to mankind.
