(NaturalNews) – As CNN is now reporting, the U.S. government has issued a new rule that would make it a felony crime for any journalist, reporter, blogger or photographer to approach any oil cleanup operation, equipment or vessel in the Gulf of Mexico. Anyone caught is subject to arrest, a $40,000 fine and prosecution for a federal felony crime.
CNN reporter Anderson Cooper says, “A new law passed today, and back by the force of law and the threat of fines and felony charges, … will prevent reporters and photographers from getting anywhere close to booms and oil-soaked wildlife just about any place we need to be. By now you’re probably familiar with cleanup crews stiff-arming the media, private security blocking cameras, ordinary workers clamming up, some not even saying who they’re working for because they’re afraid of losing their jobs.”Continue reading →
(CounterPunch) – BP, Obama and the Gulf – A Disaster Foretold
To some extent the reaction to the oil disaster is a Rorschach’s test for one’s political loyalties. What is disregarded is that this is a crisis neither for the Republicans nor the Democrats. It is more likely a crisis for a mode of governance that has become more than cosy with remarkably powerful super corporations. The flag the corporation flies (in this case, the Union Jack) is only relevant for jingoistic feints. But these are not consequential. In the confines of the White House and in the chambers of Congress, once the television cameras are off, the lawmakers and the lawbreakers shake hands, transact money and go along with business as usual.

(Examiner) – Whistle blower to testify on oil spill worst fear:BP deliberately sinks oil with Corexit as cover up
Testimony before a Senate investigative panel this week is expected to reveal what many have suspected about BP all along; they don’t care about the environment, the animals that are dying, and the lives that are being destroyed by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
In a shocking interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on June 29th, Allegiance Capitol Corporation V.P. Fred McCallister said that BP is deliberately sinking oil with the toxic chemical disbursant Corexit, to hide the size of the oil spill. By sinking the oil before it can be collected, BP won’t have to pay fines on it. Read More Here

(ActivistPost) – Goldman Sachs: The Pirates of Poison in the Gulf
Illinois-based Nalco Corporation is responsible for the Corexit 9500 chemical dispersant highlighted by experts as being 4 times more toxic than the oil that is flowing into the Gulf. Scientists in congressional hearings added that the dispersant is more toxic than other similar dispersant on the market. Naturally, whenever a major disaster takes place — especially when major, society-altering solutions are being offered — one needs to follow the trail of money and power to see who benefits. Sure enough, a casual search of Nalco’s Web site reveals their company history; it leads right to the doorstep of Goldman Sachs. Read More Here
(Bloomberg) – Senate Panel Moves to Lift Cap on Oil Spill Damages
BP Plc would have unlimited financial liability for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill under a measure approved today by a Senate panel to scrap a $75 million limit under a 20-year-old law. Read More Here
(KurtNimmo) – John Avlon, author of “Wingnuts,” and the CIA operative Anderson Cooper decided not to demonize Alex Jones on CNN last week. He made too much sense. Instead, on Monday, they “profiled” the Hutaree group. It is ideal for their propaganda campaign. Continue reading →
(PaulWatson) – A CNN Anderson Cooper segment which was set to demonize critics of big government and Obamacare as violent extremists backfired after radio host Alex Jones pointed out that corporate media outlets like CNN were responsible for killing over a million Iraqis as a consequence of their repeated lies about weapons of mass destruction.

(RawStory) – Six major powers are on Saturday to mull a response to Iran’s nuclear defiance but China is sending a lower-level diplomat in a signal of its reluctance to back tougher sanctions pushed by the West. Continue reading →
Big lies die slowly. After a claim by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that 90% of Mexican drug dealers’ military weapons (machine guns, hand grenades and missiles) come from American gun stores was exposed as a lie several months ago, it’s back — this time with the imprimatur of the Government Accountability Office.

Anderson Cooper and co. hail the ‘progress’ made by the G20 towards a “New World Order” under Gordon Brown and Barack Obama. They have come to an agreement on a new financial regulation/stability board, but not as advanced as some have hoped.
Barry Cooper confronts Austin Chief of Police Art Acevedo about forcibly drawing blood without permission, and enforcement of brutality against citizens if applied by the police state apparatus. Continue reading →
