U.S. Senate Traitors Block Investigative Power for Oil Spill Commission

The elite criminals that control the US government have their puppets in both parties in the right places.

Are they protecting (Dick Cheney’s) Halliburton?

David Icke On The Gulf Oil Spill And FEMA Camps: A ‘Biblical’ Catastrophe That Will Affect Us All

Just eight days before the Gulf blow-out, Halliburton also announced that it had agreed to buy Boots & Coots for $240.4 million. Who are Boots & Coots?

The world’s largest oil-spill clean-up company which also deals with oil and gas well fires and blowouts.

What an incredibly fortunate coincidence. What a slice of luck.

Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill: The Halliburton Connection:

The company acknowledged Friday that it had completed the final cementing of the oil well and pipe just 20 hours before the blowout last week.

BP CEO Tony Hayward sold £1.4 million of his shares weeks before Gulf blowout

Goldman Sachs Sold 44% Of Its BP Stock 3 Weeks Before Gulf Blowout

This much is true: You have been lied to:

Warning To Gulf Volunteers: Almost Every Cleanup Worker From The 1989 Exxon Valdez Disaster Is Now Dead

And the government is NOT telling the people how contaminated the air really is that they are breathing right now.

The US government knows that many, many Americans will die from this disaster, but the government does not care about them at all.

If you are living in the Gulf region and have relatives elsewhere, call them, ask if you can stay with them for a while and leave.

If you can afford to leave the Gulf region, leave NOW.


The US House of Representatives voted 420 to 1 to give the presidential commission investigating the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico full subpoena power.

The Senate blocked it = No subpoena powers = No investigation.

Transcript:

0:01 Madame President, I ask unanimous consent that the Judiciary Committee be discharged
0:06 of S 3462, a bill to provide subpoena power to the
0:11 National Commission on the British Petroleum oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico,
0:15 and that the Senate then proceed to its consideration. Is there an objection?
0:20 On behalf of other members of the Republican Conference, I object.
0:24 Objection is heard.
0:25 Madame President.
0:26 Senator from New Hampshire.
0:28 Madame President,
0:29 I ask unanimous consent that Senate proceed to the immediate consideration of calendar
0:34 number 442 HR 5481,
0:38 a bill to give subpoena power to the
0:40 National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill and off-shore drilling.
0:45 That the bill be read a third time and passed, and the motion to consider be laid upon the table
0:49 with no intervening action or debate.
0:52 This is legislation that passed the House
0:54 four hundred and twenty
0:56 to one.
1:00 Is there an objection?
1:01 On behalf of other members of the Republican Conference, I object.
1:05 The objection is heard.
1:08 Madame President.
1:09 Senator from New Hampshire.
1:10 I don’t understand what is so objectionable.
1:13 In the house one hundred and sixty nine republicans
1:18 voted in favor of giving the Presidential Commission subpoena power.
1:23 They understand how important that is
1:26 because
1:26 this commission begins their investigation in the next few weeks.
1:30 This should not be
1:31 a partisan issue. I don’t understand why my colleagues on the other side of the
1:36 aisle are turning this into a partisan issue.
1:38 I find it unbelievable
1:40 that after everything the people of the Gulf region have endured
1:45 and that this entire country has witnessed for over two months now,
1:49 that anyone is still standing
1:51 with the oil company that caused this disaster, instead of the victims who are suffering from it.
1:57 I hope the American people understand
2:00 that this is a clear contrast between
2:03 who stands on your side
2:06 and who stands on the side of special interests.
2:10 How is it possible that members of this chamber find it difficult when the House of Representatives,
2:15 in a near unanimous vote,
2:18 could say that the subpoena power is necessary for the commission to be able to get to the bottom
2:24 of what happened.
2:27 Could pass unanimously there, say for one vote,
2:30 and yet cannot even proceed here,
2:34 cannot even proceed here. This isn’t rocket science.
2:37 It’s common sense to most Americans.
2:40 We need to fully learn
2:42 the lessons of this disaster
2:44 with a thorough investigation. Not protect oil companies
2:48 from having their negligence exposed.
2:52 We need to get answers
2:54 from BP and Transocean and Halliburton and everyone else,
3:00 including the federal agencies.
3:02 Not give apologies to them,
3:05 as I have seen republicans suggest
3:07 that we should apologize to BP
3:10 for making sure
3:10 that the residents
3:11 of the Gulf region are held whole.
3:14 We need to know the truth
3:16 and the commission needs the power to get the truth.
3:20 So,
3:21 who are you protecting
3:23 and why are we hiding here?

AP IMPACT: Fed’l Inspections on Rig Not as Claimed:

The federal agency responsible for ensuring that an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico was operating safely before it exploded last month fell well short of its own policy that inspections be done at least once per month, an Associated Press investigation shows.

Since January 2005, the federal Minerals Management Service conducted at least 16 fewer inspections aboard the Deepwater Horizon than it should have under the policy, a dramatic fall from the frequency of prior years, according to the agency’s records.

Gulf of Mexico: Scientists Find Giant Plumes of Oil as Large as 10 Miles Long, 3 Miles Wide And 300 Feet Thick in Deep Waters:

Scientists studying video of the gushing oil well have tentatively calculated that it could be flowing at a rate of 25,000 to 80,000 barrels of oil a day. The latter figure would be 3.4 million gallons a day.

Beyond Stupid: BP CEO Tony Hayward:

“The Gulf of Mexico is a very big ocean. The amount of volume of oil and dispersant we are putting into it is tiny in relation to the total water volume.”

US Oil Spill: Scientists and Fishermen Alarmed Over Chemical Dispersants:

Approximately 325,000 gallons of dispersant have been deployed so far in BP’s effort to break up the spreading oil slick before it hits the fragile Gulf coast, and over 500,000 gallons more are available.
