For the past few months, I have been howling - only partly tongue-in-cheek -that the Gulf oil spill was an inside job by the Obama administration made necessary by their ideologically left-wing driven agenda.
And over the past week, it certainly seems as if the truth has finally, ah, "seeped" out....
So - who caused the oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico? Not BP, not al-Qaeda, not aliens.....our government did:
The Coast Guard has gathered evidence it failed to follow its own firefighting policy during the Deepwater Horizon disaster and is investigating whether the chaotic spraying of tons of salt water by private boats contributed to sinking the ill-fated oil rig, according to interviews and documents.
Coast Guard officials told the Center for Public Integrity that the service does not have the expertise to fight an oil rig fire and that its response to the April 20 explosion may have broken the service’s own rules by failing to ensure a firefighting expert supervised the half-dozen private boats that answered the Deepwater Horizon’s distress call to fight the blaze.
An official maritime investigation led by Coast Guard Capt. Hung M. Nguyen in New Orleans is examining whether the salt water that was sprayed across the burning platform overran the ballast system that kept the rig upright, changing its weight distribution, and causing it to list.
According to Hot Air:
The Coast Guard is not supposed to participate in firefighting, but instead assign an expert to coordinate the private firefighting efforts of the rig operator and its contractors. The Coast Guard failed to do so, and the result was an uncoordinated, “general response” effort that mainly relied on salt water to extinguish the fires. That is not the most effective way to fight rig fires; the best way is to use foam, which apparently wasn’t on hand. An expert would have known this, but as CPI’s report of the testimony shows, none was assigned...
Did Obama and Rahm Emanuel order the BP rig blown up, and follow up by issuing a specific set of directions to the Coast Guard that was counter-intuitive to what was until then standard operating procedure? In other words, did the Obama administration deliberately sink the BP Deepwater Horizon rig in order to create the crisis necessary to pass cap and trade and commit extortion upon a foreign company and the American people?
Well, why not? If Bush could kill 3,000 Americans on September 11th in order to fake a war for oil, why wouldn't Obama and Rahm kill a few million fish? Remember, these two guys likely buy into the "truther" meme anyway, why else would they hire folks like Van Jones? To leftist radicals like Barack and Rahm, this "rebel attack" was a no-brainer...
Furthermore - did Obama see as an opportunity in this crisis to nationalize BP, or at least rape and pillage them for every last cent until they died a bloody death? Again, why not? Like A Nazi raping a Jew, Obama and the Democrats see oil companies as the ultimate evil, as subhuman monsters, and any horror inflicted on them (legal or not) as justified and permissible.
So now is where the cover-up begins. Even if it was just incompetence and not conspiracy, the fact is that an arm of the United States government caused a major oil spill that has devastated the economy of the Gulf Coast. And instead of reacting to it properly - taking responsibility and taking action - the Obama administration chose inaction and coercion, letting the oil flow while flogging BP until they turned over $25 billion dollars for Obama's personal/political use. All while simultaneously trying to push through corrupt legislation that would raise taxes on every American and give control of the entire energy industry to the administration.
This may very well be the worst crime ever committed by an American president, by a factor of 10. Watergate, Lewinksy-gate? What is petty crime and a BJ from a fat chick compared to the damage wrought by Barack Obama in quest of his ideological goal, to turn America into a third-world socialist nation?
Oh, boy - folks, this is only the beginning. Expect the White House to deceive, cover-up, and lie about this story incessantly. Because if you think Barack Obama's poll numbers are a bit soft now...
