Top Oil Expert: Geology is "Fractured" ... BP is Using a "Cloak of Silence", Refusing to Share Even Basic Data with the Government

The geology is fractured.

Usually, the deeper you drill, the more pressure it takes to fracture rock. This is called the "fracture gradient".

But when BP was drilling this well, the fracture gradient reversed. Indeed, BP lost all pressure as it drilled into the formation.

WB: Is it possible that this fractured, subsea salt geology will make it difficult to permanently kill the oil leak using relief wells?

Bea: Yes, it could. The Santa Barbara channel seeps are still leaking, decades after the oil well was supposedly capped. This well could keep leaking for years.

BP accused of withholding 'critical' spill data

The company that owned the oil rig that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico is accusing BP of withholding critical evidence needed to investigate the cause of the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, according to a confidential document obtained by The Associated Press. BP called the claims a publicity stunt.

The new complaint by Transocean follows similar complaints by U.S. lawmakers about difficulties obtaining necessary information from BP in their investigations.

Bizarre slideshow on Telegraph's web site depicts mini-nuke attack on 7 cities

A rather bizarre looking series of slide shows on the UK mainstream media website Telegraph.co.uk under the name "Blackjack" appears to depict a mini-nuke attack on London, England followed by similar attacks on NYC , Washington DC, Toronto, LA, Portland Oregon, and Mexico City. It starts of with MI5 getting a warning that "a coalition of home-grown extremists, Islamists, and Christian doomsday cultists may have acquired the means to carry out a mass-casualty attack..."

There is very little text to explain what is going on, just the depictions of the cities undergoing what appears to be mini-nuke attacks and then the pics also appears to depict the formation of a new state comprising England and North America after these attacks.

Rather bizarre looking for a mainstream media type web site. Looks like someone is pulling a psy-op.

On Edit, ok it looks like this is old news from 2009 and has been discussed in prisonplanet.com articles, but this was the first time I saw it and it just struck my as very psy-op like.

Lester Crown is a Chicagoan with a net worth of four billion dollars.
According to a recently published article in The Atlantic, Israeli general Amos Yadlin traveled to Chicago in an effort to enlist Crown’s help in convincing the administration to attack Iran. White House visitor logs show that Crown did in fact visit the White House in April of this year to meet with Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett. The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu applied “hidden pressure” on Obama which came “from Chicago.”

Iraq war vet kills pregnant wife, daughter, self

April Oles-Magdzas was due to give birth to her second daughter Wednesday, a little more than a year after she and her Iraq war veteran husband became new parents.

But when Oles-Magdzas' mother showed up that day at the couple's home in Superior, she found the entire family dead of an apparent murder-suicide.

Superior police said Thursday that Matthew Magdzas, a 23-year-old Wisconsin National Guard soldier who earned a combat badge in the Iraq war, shot and killed his pregnant wife, their 13-month-old daughter Lila, and their three dogs before turning the gun on himself.

Unguarded border bridges could be route into US

On each side of a towering West Texas stretch of the $2.4 billion border fence designed to block people from illegally entering the country, there are two metal footbridges, clear paths into the United States from Mexico.

The footpaths that could easily guide illegal immigrants and smugglers across the Rio Grande without getting wet seem to be there because of what amounts to federal linguistics. While just about anyone would call them bridges, the U.S.-Mexico group that owns them calls them something else.

Researchers say they saw 22-mile hydrocarbon plume in Gulf

Scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution said they detected a plume of hydrocarbons in June that was at least 22 miles long and more than 3,000 feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, a residue of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

According to the institution, the 1.2-mile-wide, 650-foot-high plume of trapped hydrocarbons provides at least a partial answer to recent questions asking where all the oil has gone as surface slicks shrink and disappear.

Michael Edwards and Jeffrey Green

We are now three to five generations removed from the rural backbone that strengthened America. The world at large has undergone a similar transformation as the promise of easier work has created a migration to big cities. These mega-cities could be seen as an experiment gone awry, as general well-being has declined, with suicide rates increasing across the world. Crowded conditions and economic strife have led to rampant crime, pollution, corporate malfeasance, and a dog-eat-dog type of competition that can be described as a temporary insanity.

US Announces Second Fake End to Iraq War

It was another of those great TV moments. Embedded reports filming as the “last” brigade of American troops in Iraq cross the border into Kuwait bringing over seven years of unhappy conflict to its final, conclusive end. America was, at last, at peace.

But like so many other great TV moments, this one was a scripted fantasy, a fake exit done purely for political gain by an increasingly unpopular president trying to look like he is keeping at least one campaign promise.

It was perhaps a different sort of scripted, mythical end to the Iraq War than the last one, the May 1, 2003 “Mission Accomplished” speech of President Bush, but it was no more real, as over 50,000 US troops remain on the ground in Iraq tonight.

Major study proves oil plume that's not going away

A 22-mile-long invisible mist of oil is meandering far below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, where it will probably loiter for months or more, scientists reported Thursday in the first conclusive evidence of an underwater plume from the BP spill.

The most worrisome part is the slow pace at which the oil is breaking down in the cold, 40-degree water, making it a long-lasting but unseen threat to vulnerable marine life, experts said.

Earlier this month, top federal officials declared the oil in the spill was mostly "gone," and it is gone in the sense you can't see it. But the chemical ingredients of the oil persist more than a half-mile beneath the surface, researchers found.

Somethin’ Funny’s Goin’ On

The Manta.com website includes a database of over 63 million US and foreign companies. That database info is provided by Dunn & Bradstreet (D&B). Manta.com will provide preliminary information on each of these millions of companies for free. If you want more “in-depth” info, there’s a fee.

For example, if you type “Government of the United States” into the Manta.com search engine, you’ll be whisked to a list of “7,666 matching US companies”.

The first “company” on the list is:

“Government of the United States (US Government) HQ

“the u.s. Capitol Washington DC”

The “HQ” stands for “headquarters”.

None of that seems particularly surprising (other than the idea that our “Government” might be a “company” and/or a conglomerate of “companies”). But the Manta.com report does begin to seem a little strange under the heading “About Government Of The United States” where we read:

“government, owner archbishop deric r. mccloud of basilica shrine michigan and 4th ne street washington,dc”.

The reason given in the letter was that there is still bitterness within Dallas’ population against the Jewish people because of their role in the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald by one Jack Ruby ( Rubenstein).

Flashback to 1953 : Joint CIA/MI6 Military Coup in Iran: "Operation Ajax"

To understand the nature of American and British “democracy promotion” in Iran, it is important to examine their historical practices regarding “democracy” in Iran. Specifically, the events of 1953 present a very important picture, in which the United States orchestrated its first foreign coup, with guidance and direction from the British, who had extensive oil interests in Iran. The first democratically elected government of Mohommad Mossadeq in 1951 announced the nationalization of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (later to be re-named British Petroleum), which had an exclusive monopoly on Iranian oil. This naturally angered the British, who, in 1952, convinced the CIA to help in a plot to overthrow Iran’s government.

It's no secret our economy is in bad shape. The unemployment rate remains high at 9.6 percent, consumers are not consuming and banks are not giving out loans.

As with all modern disasters, getting to the truth is not an easy task. First, people along the Gulf Coast were told that BP and the EPA had placed benzene monitors along the Alabama and Florida coasts, and that there was no indication of any VOCs. A senior reporter from WEAR-TV, an ABC affiliate in Pensacola, was unable to find any air-quality monitors in that area.

Several studies have found there is no threshold for carcinogenesis — that is, a level of benzene exposure at which lower levels are nontoxic. It appears that benzene is toxic at all levels and with chronic exposure — especially in people with certain genetic weaknesses — cancer is likely to develop.

Symptoms from VOCs are many times mistaken for other forms of illnesses, but generally they include headaches, dizziness, nausea, eye irritation, coughing, shortness of breath, nasal irritation, and multiple chemical sensitivity. Some of the gases have an odor, but others are odorless.

HR 1553 Authorizing 'Use of Force' Against Iran is Based on Pure Propaganda

Activist Post

America has not officially declared war on a nation since World War II. Yet we are now entangled in endless wars with no feasible goals, except sustained military profits and resource grabs. Instead, we vote to "authorize the use of force" just in case we may need it, which strategically limits the public debate. Although many believe that the stiff Iran sanctions detailed in HR 2194, the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act was an Act of War, the proposed HR 1553 is the actual "authorization of the use of force."

Axing the Bankers’ Money Tree: Homeowners’ Rebellion against Wall Street

Over 62 million mortgages are now held in the name of MERS, an electronic recording system devised by and for the convenience of the mortgage industry. A California bankruptcy court, following landmark cases in other jurisdictions, recently held that this electronic shortcut makes it impossible for banks to establish their ownership of property titles—and therefore to foreclose on mortgaged properties. The logical result could be 62 million homes that are foreclosure-proof.

Health Effects of the Gulf Oil Spill

Gina M. Solomon, MD, MPH; Sarah Janssen, MD, PhD, MPH

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico poses direct threats to human health from inhalation or dermal contact with the oil and dispersant chemicals, and indirect threats to seafood safety and mental health. Physicians should be familiar with health effects from oil spills to appropriately advise, diagnose, and treat patients who live and work along the Gulf Coast or wherever a major oil spill occurs.

Taliban call for joint inquiry into civilian Afghan deaths considered

Nato and the United Nations are cautiously considering a Taliban proposal to set up a joint commission to investigate allegations of civilians being killed and wounded in the conflict in Afghanistan, diplomats in Kabul have told the Guardian.

The Taliban overture, which came in a statement posted on its website, will revive a divisive debate about whether to conduct any formal talks with insurgents who are responsible for the majority of civilian casualties in Afghanistan, and whose assassination campaign now kills one person a day on average.

The Taliban statement called for the establishment of a body including members from the Organisation of the Islamic Conference, UN human rights investigators, Nato and the Taliban.

Back in 1941, there was this foreign nation, Japan, which was illegally occupying other peoples' lands in China and Indonesia.

There were Americans in close proximity to that foreign nation, in the then-territory of Hawaii, and even though the Americans had not actually done much of anything, that foreign nation decided it had the right to attack and kill Americans just on the off chance that somewhere down the road, they might be in inconvenience.

Thus came about the attack on Pearl Harbor.

BP, Feds don’t know what’s causing pressure drop: “We’re concerned about the vital signs of this well. We continue to be concerned about the vital signs.”

We’re trying to do two things while the evaluation of alternatives is going on. We have the opportunity to develop more vital signs for the well, one of them being to remove all foreign objects — all foreign liquids from the current well, flush it, and fill it with seawater, so we have exactly the same density of material inside and outside the BOP that will allow us to do an ambient pressure test to see if there’s any kind of pressure, a rise or fall related to something other than what we believe now to be the gas bubbles that are escaping and causing the drop in pressure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is what I think happened.

The MMS paperwork for the Macondo well complex indicates two wells were drilled. Early in the year, the "A" well was drilled, but ran into trouble and was abandoned. Then the "B" well was drilled, which resulted in the destruction of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and the massive blowout.

We know that the pipe and well casing for well "B" was destroyed in at least one location about 1000 feet below the floor of the Gulf of Mexico. This was the reasn for the failure of the first "Top Kill" procedure.

CNN reported on two other potential leaks at 9,000 feet and 17,000 feet.

Therefore, it made no sense to try to cap the well July 15th, much less to claim a success, unless BP pulled a fast one and switched the ROV camera back to the abandoned Well "A", and capped that for the benefit of the TV audience. This ia borne out by the navigation data for the ROVs which show the ROV camera showing the cap located well away from the blown out Deepwater Hporizon well "B", at the location for well "A".

Click for larger image

Click for larger image So, what I think happened is that under the cover of Tropical Depression Bonnie, the ROV and some ships were moved over from Well "B" to well "A", which they figured could be easily capped for the V audience. But remember, well "A" was abandoned after it ran into trouble, so I think the pipe and casing for well "A" is also damaged, and BP wasn't prepared to deal with both well being blown out below the surface.

Goodbye Iraq: Last US combat brigade heads home

Scatterings of troops still await departure, and some 50,000 will stay another year in what is designated as a noncombat role. They will carry weapons to defend themselves and accompany Iraqi troops on missions (but only if asked). Special forces will continue to help Iraqis hunt for terrorists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is just another election-year propaganda ploy. The kids are still in Iraq, just under a different label. Remember the Vietnam "Advisers?" We were all told they were non-combat roles as well, but they still came home in body-bags. Changing the labels does not change the reality on the ground. The Iraqis who want their home back will not stop shooting at Americans just because they are now called "transition support personnel."

CIA forms new center to combat nukes, WMDs

Kimberly Dozier
Associated Press

The CIA is opening a counterproliferation center to combat the spread of dangerous weapons and technology, a move that comes as Iran is on the verge of fueling up a new nuclear power plant.

CIA Director Leon Panetta said Wednesday that the new unit would place CIA operators side by side with the agency's analysts to brainstorm plans to "confront the threat of weapons of mass destruction - nuclear, chemical and biological."

The center would formalize the collaboration between the agency's analysts and operators, a close working relationship that CIA spokesman George Little said already has yielded intelligence successes.

Peak Everything: Preface to the paperback edition

The oil situation is dire enough that one might assume it would be dominating headlines daily. Yet in fact it garners little attention. That’s because the world’s ongoing and worsening oil crisis has been obscured by a more dramatic and obvious financial catastrophe. As we all know only too well, Wall Street banks—which had spent the past couple of decades giddily building themselves a quadrillion-dollar house of cards—went into a free-fall swoon in the latter half of 2008 (right after the oil price spike), only to be temporarily rescued with trillions of dollars of government bailouts and guarantees. It was a spine-tingling show—and would have amounted to months of fine entertainment, had it not been for the fact that millions of jobs, thousands of small businesses, and the economies of several sovereign nations also came tumbling down, and there just weren’t enough trillions available to rescue all of them (it obviously pays to be “too big to fail” and to have friends in high places).

The financial aspects of the crisis were so Byzantine, and the cast of players so opulently and impudently villainous, that it was easy to forget the simple truism that all money is, in the end, merely a claim on resources, energy, and labor. A financial system built on staggering amounts of debt and the anticipation of both unending economic growth and absurdly high returns on investments can only work if labor is always getting cheaper, and supplies of energy and resources are always growing—and even then occasional hiccups are to be expected.

Hamas must rebrand and take the wind out of Israel’s and America’s sails

Littlewood calls on Hamas – indeed, on all Palestinians – to hone their long-neglected public relations strategy, arguing that “whoever rules in Palestine will never win any battles with Israel or the US without a proper media set-up and an effective communications strategy”.

In the five years since I became interested in the Palestinians, only two things of positive note have happened in the occupied territories.

The Palestinians held full and fair elections in 2006 to establish themselves as a democracy – and much good it did them.

FLASHBACK - Israel funded "terroriost" groups through BCCI

BCCI was a major international money-laundering bank founded by Agha Hasan Abedi of Pakistan in 1972. Abedi moved his headquarters to London, and registered the company in Luxembourg (which vies with Switzerland as Europe’s biggest money-laundering center for world gangsters, especially Jewish gangsters.) BCCI operated in 78 countries, had over 400 branches, and claimed assets of US$ 25 billion. MI5 confirmed that the Israelis funded their Abu Nidal terrorist through the Sloane Street branch of BCCI, near Harrods in London. The Israelis also used BCCI to fund “Black September” and many other Israeli false flag operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Abu Nidal was the supposed mastermind of the Munich Massacre and the hijacking of the Achille Lauro; acts of "terror" that demonized the Palestinians while portraying the Israelis as perpetual victims deserving of the world;s unquestioning support. So now we learn that Israel was actually signing the checks for Abu Nidal's operations!

With private sector jobs being lost, incomes declining and tax bases shrinking, the increases in government spending were both unsustainable and destructive. More was being spent by the government than earned by the private sector. Not only were taxes not covering expenses, impoverished states with insufficient cash on hand to meet obligations were holding back tax refund checks!

Since everyone seems to have an opinion about the mosque near Ground Zero (and President Obama has two), I’d like to ask you all a couple of questions:

Given that white Christian supremacist Tim McVeigh bombed the Oklahoma City Federal Building, shouldn’t we ban white churches from Oklahoma?

As New York City’s indigenous Lanape Natives died at Ground Zero by the thousands when overrun by Christian colonists, shouldn’t we ban Christian churches from their sacred ground?

If a mosque near Ground Zero is bad, then why not ban all Muslims from downtown New York? For this to work, should we require all Muslims in the city to wear yellow crescents?

It's foolish to think that if America attacks Iran, those American troops will emerge from the carnage unscathed. Iran is in no position to engage America in a conventional war, but that doesn't mean that it can't spill much American blood.

Mounting Opposition to GMO Crops: The World’s People Reject Genetic Pollution of Food and the Environment

Public opposition to GM crops has grown in recent years as more evidence surfaces that DNA-altered crops:

* Require massive chemical inputs which destroy local biodiversity and poison the water tables;
* Cross-pollinate with natural and weedy crops;
* Create superweeds; and
* Have been shown to cause organ damage, sterility, and diabetes and obesity in mammals.

Meanwhile, President Obama has stacked his Administration with biotech insiders going so far as to appoint Islam Siddiqui as Agriculture Trade Negotiator. Siddiqui is a former pesticide lobbyist and vice president of CropLife America, a biotech and pesticide trade group that lobbies to weaken environmental laws.

Flashback - Collapsing Colonies: Are GM Crops Killing Bees?

A mysterious decimation of bee populations has German beekeepers worried, while a similar phenomenon in the United States is gradually assuming catastrophic proportions. The consequences for agriculture and the economy could be enormous.

The study in question is a small research project conducted at the University of Jena from 2001 to 2004. The researchers examined the effects of pollen from a genetically modified maize variant called "Bt corn" on bees. A gene from a soil bacterium had been inserted into the corn that enabled the plant to produce an agent that is toxic to insect pests. The study concluded that there was no evidence of a "toxic effect of Bt corn on healthy honeybee populations." But when, by sheer chance, the bees used in the experiments were infested with a parasite, something eerie happened. According to the Jena study, a "significantly stronger decline in the number of bees" occurred among the insects that had been fed a highly concentrated Bt poison feed.

According to Hans-Hinrich Kaatz, a professor at the University of Halle in eastern Germany and the director of the study, the bacterial toxin in the genetically modified corn may have "altered the surface of the bee's intestines, sufficiently weakening the bees to allow the parasites to gain entry -- or perhaps it was the other way around. We don't know."

The Anacondas and the Jesus Jumping Girl.

As it ever was, most of the world is struggling to get or to hold on to their little piece of what’s important while being compelled to trade off what is important, for the security of appearing to be, because a handful of not so empty suits did an HIV tag marker thing on the thing that made you lose it for something else, that wasn’t worth shit. Ask Jack. He knows
