(Bloomberg) – Just before sunset on April 10, 2006, a DC-9 jet landed at the international airport in the port city of Ciudad del Carmen, 500 miles east of Mexico City. As soldiers on the ground approached the plane, the crew tried to shoo them away, saying there was a dangerous oil leak. So the troops grew suspicious and searched the jet.
They found 128 black suitcases, packed with 5.7 tons of cocaine, valued at $100 million. The stash was supposed to have been delivered from Caracas to drug traffickers in Toluca, near Mexico City, Mexican prosecutors later found. Law enforcement officials also discovered something else.

(MakeItEightEh) – According to Glenn Beck, the reason Obama can not allow the cleanup in the Gulf from the oil leak is the “Jones Act”, which gives the Unions power to effect control over who works on boats. No foreigners are allowed. Yet, Obama has no problem with allowing illegal immigrants. Good point Glenn, or is it?
It would appear just as Beck fed enough truth and good information on George Soros and his involvement in Brazilian oil giant Petrobras, he has diverted once again from the true issue, and is on the attack of labor unions and their pensions. Continue reading →

(June 21) – Video: The Watson Report – BP Oil Spill – Criminal Negligence or Deliberate Sabotage?
In this special video report for Prison Planet.tv members, Paul Joseph Watson analyzes the evidence for both criminal negligence and deliberate sabotage of the BP oil well and explores who is benefiting from the oil spill, both financially and politically.
Given the multitude of alarming examples of foreknowledge, motivation for sabotage, and clear evidence of deliberate malfeasance and negligence, state authorities in Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi need to immediately launch a mammoth criminal investigation into the role of BP, Halliburton and the federal government in causing the oil spill disaster, as well as their continuing cover-up of the true nature of the crisis, in addition to their efforts to block local authorities as well as foreign companies from helping to both stop the oil leak and clean up the devastation it has caused.
Further information made available after our report, much of which was published in the comment section by contributors who scoured the web for more information on the subject, suggests that the report was true and that national guard units had indeed been called up for training and possible deployment for domestic emergencies.
With the BP oil leak heating up (literally), there is a distinct possibility of noxious fumes and toxic hurricanes hitting our coasts over the coming months. Because there is minimal research on the subject available to the public, it is difficult to establish what is or is not a threat. Nonetheless, we advise those of our readers on or near the coast to remain aware of any developments regarding the possibility of emergencies or evacuations in their areas.
For those who may think we are overreacting to the possibility that the federal government would respond to an emergency, specifically mandatory evacuations on the gulf coast with the use of National Guard troops, we direct you to the article below, brought to our attention by Worldwide Wake Up Now and originally published at Public Intelligence.

(RawStory) – Physics professor: Oil leak could last for years
If this seventh attempt fails, the next option will be to wait on one of two relief wells to intercept and block the original well. This is considered the best hope for permanently stopping the flow, but those wells won’t be in place until August at the soonest. Some predict that it could take until Christmas.
But Kaku thinks that even those predictions could be too optimistic. Read More Here

(Fungi) – PAUL STAMETS’ STATEMENT ON MYCOREMEDIATION AND ITS APPLICATIONS TO OIL SPILLS
While we will need a wide array of efforts to address this complex problem, mycoremediation is a valuable component in our toolset of solutions. Mycoremediation has demonstrated positive results, verified by scientists in many countries. However, there is more oil spilled than there is currently mycelium available. Much more mycelium is needed and, fortunately, we know how to generate it.
Here is what we know about mycoremediation, based on tests conducted by myself, my colleagues and other researchers who have published their results. (See attached references.) Read More Here

A clause buried deep in the U.S. Clean Water Act may expose BP and others to civil fines that aren’t limited to any finite cap — unlike a $75 million limit on compensation for economic damages. The Act allows the government to seek civil penalties in court for every drop of oil that spills into U.S. navigable waters, including the area of BP’s leaking well. Read More Here

(Rense) – BP = “Benzene Pullutants” – A Short Benzene Toxicity Primer – How to Stay Healthy – A. True Ott, PhD
What is unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico is truly a nightmare of epic proportions. Untold millions (if not billions) of gallons of raw crude oil, mixed with natural gas has been spewing (not spilling) into the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico for over a month. All efforts to plug the massive leak have ended in abject failure. Sadly, the “mainstream media”is failing to accurately report the substantial health risks the massive oil geyser is posing to all coastal residents.
Raw crude oil is naturally loaded with a petrochemical called benzene. Unfortunately, several regulatory agencies (e.g., the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency [EPA], and the International Agency for Research on Cancer) classify benzene as a confirmed human carcinogen (CHC). In other words, benzene causes cancer and other chronic disease states.1 This paper will review the dangers of benzene exposure, and offer solutions to help detoxify the body following exposure –either via the air, or by sea water, or rain and precipitation in contact with the skin.

(Null&Void) – Toxins Developed By Exxon Used To Extenuate Effects of Gulf Oil Spill
As of May 10th, over 250,000 gallons of COREXIT 9500A, a chemical known as a ‘dispersant,’ – designed to break down substances like oil into smaller, less visible particles – has been dumped into the ocean at the site of the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
According to a fact sheet released by the Food & Water Watch group, while dispersants like COREXIT 9500A may break down surface oil particles easing the eye and minimizing contact with oil for a select few animals, they actually encourage oil exposure deeper in the water column to various marine life, including fish, oysters, and eggs – many organisms sold as food commodity around the world.
