To review briefly: The Obama/Rahm Emanuel plot to blow up BP Deepwater Horizon, as in why:
Support drilling, take some flack from your own side and appear "bi-partisan". Blow up the rig, sit back and do nothing while the spill grows in size, and use the hysterical coverage as a smoke screen to renege on your vow to expand drilling, while simultaneously pleasing your base by imposing even more draconian legislation on the oil industry.
We wrote that back on May 4th. And of course, in short order a moratorium was placed upon offshore drilling by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar. Poor Ken - he thought the smoke was thick enough to cover up whatever statistical fudging needed to be done to support the swing away from domestic drilling, as the administration wanted. Alas, he did not count on the scientists to actually speak up after the fact to tell the nation that the Gulf oil spill is a big freakin' scam:
The seven experts who advised President Obama on how to deal with offshore drilling safety after the Deepwater Horizon explosion are accusing his administration of misrepresenting their views to make it appear that they supported a six-month drilling moratorium -- something they actually oppose.
The experts, recommended by the National Academy of Engineering, say Interior Secretary Ken Salazar modified their report last month, after they signed it, to include two paragraphs calling for the moratorium on existing drilling and new permits.
Salazar's report to Obama said a panel of seven experts "peer reviewed" his recommendations, which included a six-month moratorium on permits for new wells being drilled using floating rigs and an immediate halt to drilling operations.
"None of us actually reviewed the memorandum as it is in the report," oil expert Ken Arnold told Fox News. "What was in the report at the time it was reviewed was quite a bit different in its impact to what there is now. So we wanted to distance ourselves from that recommendation."
In other words, the experts told Salazar one thing, and he wrote a report saying something quite the opposite, while claiming it was "scientist endorsed".
In most professions, this would get you fired. In some areas - public service, one would think - this type of conduct would be criminal. But lying - or blowing up oil rigs - in the service of the "public good" (destroying Big Oil) is A-Ok in the warped morality of the Obama administration.
And the administration's "energy advisor", Carol Browner, goes one step stupider and tries to defend the indefensible:
"No one's been deceived or misrepresented," Browner told Fox News, defending the moratorium as a safety measure. "These experts gave their expert advice, and then a determination was made looking at all of the information, including what these experts provided -- that there should be a pause, and that's exactly what there is. There's a pause."
But Carol - you lying sack of sh*t - that's not what the experts said at all - as a matter of fact, the scientists the complete opposite:
"A blanket moratorium is not the answer," they wrote in a letter claiming Interior Department Secretary Ken Salazar's report "misrepresents" their position. "A blanket moratorium will have the indirect effect of harming thousands of workers and further impact state and local economies suffering from the spill."
Carol Browner and Ken Salazar - caught fabricating evidence and forcing results based on political ideology as opposed to the truth. And in Carol's instance, lying about it after the fact.
These two idiots may or may not have been part of Obama's conspiracy to blow up the BP rig, poison the Gulf, and use the ensuing anger and chaos to completely eliminate domestic drilling and impose a cap & trade regimen, thus creating a classic socialist-style command economy (and you were curious why Barack doesn't seem even the least bit angry about any of this? Why should he? It's working out exactly the way he planned!). But even if they weren't in the know, out of a combination of deceit, loyalty, and sheer stupidity, they have stepped in the middle of a quickly unraveling conspiracy.
The center never holds, Barack. It's all falling apart, and the truth is seeping out like oil from a ....oh, never mind. But the question is, can you hide the sludge until after the November elections have passed? Not if dirty, oily birds like Browner and Salazar keep washing up on shore...
