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).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:
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!).
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.(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:
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.
Today Barak Obama convinced me completely!(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.
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 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.
