Most Deceitful Month On Record?

A voodoo environmental management agency or two have evidently been told to not look too deep into the gulf of news reports about vast plumes of oil floating beneath the surface of the Gulf of Mexico.

Dredd Blog has been pointing out from close to day one that this would be another episode of government lies trying to cover up.

We pointed out that in so doing they are continuing a catastrophic partnering with a catastrophic MOMCOM oil drilling misadventure. Here are some quotes and posts:
Start up the word grinders Press Secretary Fibbs (successor to Snotty and Snow Job) and see if you can out do the neoCons with propaganda. (Spill Baby Spill - 2).


But when an administration will not consider sound foreign or domestic policy, it is bound to blunder into situations where that administration's best friend is propaganda. (The Bleep Goes On ...).


Sugarland, Texas makes killer chemicals that hide oil from you like banksters hyde your public money from you.

These chemicals, made in Sugarland by Nalco, are worse for the ocean environment than the oil is, but what is important to MOMCOM is that the oil disappear from your sight yesterday.

The U.S. government has also gone into panic propaganda mode because MOMCOM can not keep a lid on this one. (May Day! May Day!).
So the article I found today confirming "hear no oil plume evidence, see no oil plume evidence, speak no oil plume evidence" is not a big surprise, even though it is a disappointment:
The Obama administration is actively trying to dismiss media reports that vast plumes of oil lurk beneath the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, unmeasured and uncharted.

But the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, whose job it is to assess and track the damage being caused by the BP oil spill that began four weeks ago, is only monitoring what's visible -- the slick on the Gulf's surface -- and currently does not have a single research vessel taking measurements below.

The one ship associated with NOAA that had been doing such research is back in Pascagoula, Miss., having completed a week-long cruise during which scientists taking underwater samples found signs of just the kind of plume that environmentalists fear could have devastating effects on sea life of all shapes and sizes.

Meanwhile, the commander of the NOAA vessel that the White House on Friday claimed in a press release "is now providing information for oil spill related research" told HuffPost on Tuesday that he's actually far away, doing something else entirely.
(Government Remains Blind, emphasis added). But they are choosing to remain blind, because the ugly reality lurking below the surface is evidence that they were fully unprepared for reality:
Today Barak Obama convinced me completely!

He made a pronouncement that drilling for oil in the waters near the coast of the Atlantic and other places is the right thing to do.

In effect, Sarah Palin and the oil barons are right he said, reversing yet another campaign talking point made not long ago.

Offshore drilling has been banned in those areas for decades, but is coming to an end, even though he said he would not do that when he asked for our votes.
(The Extinction Clock Nears Midnight). Little wonder why the elections went the way they did yesterday, pointing out that Obama rhetoric is not as loud, not as listened to, as Obama's bushism is.

The picture from the cosmos, taken from a NASA orbiting satellite, makes one wonder about ecocide and the criminal insanity of governments that would allow the destruction of what civilization must have to survive.

Don't shit where you eat fools.

MOMCOM take note, it is time to start spreading the news and stop spreading the disease.

The Coast Guard is the better source at this time, so it would be good if they could get the ok to monitor the underwater islands of poison oil looking for victims.

UPDATE: Some within the Coast Guard have succumbed to the panic and have threated to arrest journalists if they keep spreading the news about the spreading poison oil disaster.


  1. Meanwhile Texas is ahead of the game in wind power technology.

    Read the post at Ecocosmology Blog ...

  2. I picture Bush and Cheney somewhere smoking cigars, smiling broadly, and saying, "Atta boy Obama, you're doing real good. Keep it up and we've a got better position for you down in Houston after all that White House stuff is over with."

    One thing's for sure, if the GOP didn't plan all this from the start (another Bush double-cross of John McCain - go figure!), it couldn't have worked out any better if they had.

    Heard another thing on NPR yesterday, Alaska Republican Lisa Murkowski is already using the leak in the Gulf as argument for drilling in the ANWR. All sources will eventually be exploited, as there's simply no alternative for a nation and world addicted to oil. The environment's been sacrificed when necessary thus far and the future will be no different.

    Once the definitive news is in on global warming (which is what the play was all along), all stops will be pulled and industrialization will race full speed ahead in an effort to exploit all remaining resources while they last before the crash eventually comes.

    I'm just now figuring this out, but I'm sure there's smart and powerful people out there who had this figured out decades ago laughing out loud at our colective stupidity.

  3. Stockholm Syndrome Rule 1:

    Those who hold the power to change the outcome of a situation are the guilty ones if they do not change it for the better, the others are the victims.

  4. MOMCOM cackles like it is the season of the witch, while the laughter of children without a future tugs on the hearts of the sane, as Washingtonians continue to "just want to be on the side that's winning".

    Those who "are not living are busy dying" ...

  5. The Coast Guard says that the tar balls found in Florida are not from the BP spill.

    I have doubts because new dispersants and techniques were used deep, not just on the surface, so do we really know what effect those chemicals will have on the oil ... like changing its chemical properties?


  6. How about Dem candidate Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, who just couldn't resist lying about his phantom military service in Vietnam, and then has the nuts to make an indignant public statement defending his service. Are you fucking kidding me? Guess he figured what the hell, Bush II essentially got away with it in 2004, so he'd give it a go too. I ask again, what's a poor parody writer to do with guys like this around? They're stealing all our material!

  7. Newt The Gingrich said Obama is equal to Stalin who killed 20 million of his own people, Hitler who killed 6 million Jews. Bloviate much?

    Rand Paul evidently said he would not have voted for the Civil Rights Act, and did not answer whether races could be segregated at Diners.

    Yep, deceit is a damaging practice.

    The choice in the election will be between rabidly insane republicans and "radical status quo" democrats.

  8. Dredd,

    Ron Paul is in favor of racial discrimination in certain situations.

    His father with the "R-TX" label after it explains where he learned it.


  9. disaffected,

    Yep, one wonders why, with all the bloviating in elections, one would want to brag about being in the Vietnam war, a sickening, inhumane debacle.
