Americans do have a tendency to be too nice and under estimate the enemy (unless they are actually working as soldiers), and some Americans do not have a true understanding that some politicians in the United States of America are truly enemies of the United States of America, and the enemies are those who call themselves communists (at least in private and maybe sometimes in public) and promote the idea of communism, and the enemies are those who call themselves socialists and promote the idea of socialism, et cetera, and such people really, when you understand what socialism, communism, and such are about, you understand the people who promote those ideas are enslavers and really promote the idea of "enslavism," which I define as a form of government in which a few dictate to the many and which some people might call "statism," which lacks the necessary evilness meaning as a word in the minds of men as "enslavism" can have. People who promote enslavism see themselves as, for example, special people, the chosen ones, and, most importantly, "rulers," and "rulers" are people who wish to be nothing else than rulers, wishing not to be, for instance, plumbers, writers, hair dressers, machinists, insurance salesmen, chemists, et cetera, and since rulers do not usually work to gain knowledge that does not pertain to being rulers, such as what must be known by persons of other jobs and careers, rulers are, generally speaking, ignorant of the lives of others and the days of others and the workings of the world, and since rulers are people who want to be rulers, they are people who wish not to be "representatives" of the citizens because "representatives" are, in essence, beholden to the people or even enslaved--as they might see it--to the people, and also rulers, at least in the United States of America, see The U.S. Constitution as a document that restricts their ability to rule and be rulers--who are people who have the power to make unrestricted decisions--and the ability to be unrestricted in making rulers is the way of tyrants, who are bad people. In this day and age, many people in the Democratic Party in the United States of America are communists, socialists, and such, and are working to be, in essence, unrestricted tyrants, and the biggest tyrant today is Barack Obama. The purpose of this document is to expose Barack Obama, a "ruler" and not a "representative of the people," for what he is and wishes to be, which is a "tyrant," and to show a part of what he has done and is doing to purposely hurt the United States of America as it was founded, and the presentatation focuses on the Deepwater Horizon explosion of April 20, 2010, and what I see as Barack Obama's work to hurt the beaches.
* * * Some Background Information * * *
There have been few significant oil-rig disasters in the Gulf of Mexico since the 1960s. Since the 1960s, one of the most famous spill that took place was the Ixtoc I oil spill, which was active in the Gulf of Mexico from June 3, 1979, to March 23, 1980, and it was where Pemex (a Mexican-government company) had been drilling an exploratory well--it was an oil-rig leak. On April 20, 2010, an oil rig--called Deepwater Horizon--that belonged to a company called BP exploded, and it was a significant oil-rig disaster. Over the days that followed the explosion of Deepwater Horizon, BP was in the spotlight--in the news--every day, and here is some of the information that Americans might have learned about BP or might not have heard about BP (because news entities were purposely lax)..
The history of BP goes back to the very early 1900s, and over the years, the company has had a number of names, the current of which was adopted in 2001 and which was based on the previous name, British Petroleum. The company, which has subsidiaries, is based in the United Kingdom, particularly Westminster of England. Today, BP is owned by people or companies or entities all over the world, basically. Forty percent of the holders of shares are in the United Kingdom, and thirty-nine percent of the holders of shares are in the United States of America, and, generally speaking, the remainder of the shares are held by the people in the reminder of the world, and about seventeen percent of the shareholders are individuals, such as retirees. Trouble came to the company on April 20, 2010, when Deepwater Horizon, an oil-drilling rig that the company had in the Gulf of Mexico and about fifty miles from the coast of Louisiana, explosed and killed eleven persons.
Let me pass along a small portion of a 2007 interview involving Steve Chu, who would go on to be the Energy Secretary for the Barack Obama administration (that is what he is now), starting in 2009, and the interview was done at a time when Steve Chu was working at the University of California--Berkeley:
Steve Chu: "...There's been a lot of excitement that has been growing over the last several years, and now with partnered with BP, we will have the resources to actually carry out some of the things we want to do in order to, ah, help save the world."
Reporter: "And so are we gonna save the world?"
Steve Chu: "Well, we're gonna save the world in part by doing something about the energy problem, and this impacts national security, this impacts economic prosperity, and, and, most important to me, this impacts, ah, stewardship of the environment...."
Over the first few weeks after the explosion had occurred, some reporters or news entities showed that BP had donated money to the Democratic Party, and I make clear here that BP gave campaign money to Barack Obama (a Democrat) during his time as a U.S. Senator and during his run for the presidency of the United States of America--$77,051 (Lovley, Erika. "Obama biggest recipient of BP cash." Politico, 5 May 2010, 5:37 p.m. EDT.).
* * * General History in Notes * * *
A person has to have enough general knowledge about a subject before the person can understand how a new event related to the subject, such as complex event, relates to the subject; for example, a person cannot make a diagnosis about why a car will not start if the person does not have basis information in mind about how a car works, which can include basic knowledge about electricity, mechanics, et cetera. When an event happens, a person may not understand the significance of the event unless other knowledge is in mind; for instance, if a President of the United States of America pushes a company to hand over money--a process that does not involve a court case--a person may not know why in the United States of America that is wrong and bad. This section provides background information about what people have done in relation to the Deepwater Horizon explosion of April 20, 2010, so that the information provided in the next section, which is entitled "Now Add This to the General History," will be understood better by a person reading it.
Incidentally, the U.S. Minerals Management Service was the entity that supervised oil rigs from at least January 1, 2010, to June 21, 2010, when the name of the entity was changed to the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation, and Enforcement (or the BOE).
Consider this paragraph a rough history outline. Deepwater Horizon was inspected by the U.S. Minerals Management Service in February 2010, March 2010, and April 1, 2010. On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon, which was an exploration well, exploded and killed eleven persons, and on Thursday, April 22, 2010, what was left of the rig, which had been on fire, sank in to the Gulf of Mexico, and oil was leaking from the riser pipe, which was thousands of feet down from the surface of the Gulf of Mexico. On April 29, 2010, an oil slick was about three miles from Louisiana, and on April 29, 2010, the federal government sent in some booms and skimmers to the leak area. The first leaked oil reached shore of Louisiana on Friday, April 30, 2010, and it was the day on which Barack Obama ordered a stop to the issuing of new permits for offshore drilling rigs until new safety measures were put in place--measures that had yet to be determined, such as by U.S. Department of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who was to make only a report about recommendations in thirty days, and, by the day, some chemical dispersants had already been used. On May 4, 2010, it was still unknown what caused the explosion at the formerly existing oil rig, and BP was getting ready to put a one-hundred-twenty-five-ton containment vessel over the leak, which was about five-thousand-feet below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, and the unit, which had been designed to catch much of the oil that was leaking per moment and not designed to plug the leak completely, was put roughly in place on May 7, 2010, and it was publicly reported around this day that the rough cause of the explosion was an explosion of a methane-gas bubble (The Associated Press. "Methane bubble led blast, workers say." Detroit Free Press, 8 May 2010, p. 13A.), and, about a day later, it was clear that the procedure to cap the leak had failed because of a built up of ice crystals, which, for one, had clogged up the exit pipe, which would have allowed oil to get to the surface of the Gulf of Mexico and collection ships. On Saturday, May 8, 2010, leaked oil was finally showing up on beaches of Alabama. On May 11, 2010, U.S. Senators were questioning in two hearings executives of three companies tied to the former oil rig, such as the chairman of BP America (the American subsidiary of BP). In essence, around May 15, 2010, engineers were working and trying to sleeve the pipe (which was 21 inches in diameter) from which oil was leading with a six-inch diameter tube, and if they could sleeve the pipe, they could suck up oil leaking from the broken pipe, and, indeed, soon, engineers were able to get the tube in the pipe and begin collecting some oil. On Wednesday, May 19, 2010, it was publicly reported by BP that the company planned to shoot drilling mud and cement in to the well pipe sometimes soon, and the procedure, which had ever been tried at a depth of about one mile, was called a "top kill" procedure, and the procedure would be started on Wednesday, May 26, 2010, and the procedure would fail and would be abandoned by Saturday, May 29, 2010, and by Saturday, May 29, 2010, engineers were working on plans to try to cap the well by using what was called a "lower marine riser package cap," which would involve using robotic submarines to cut off the riser so that a clean end could be created on the riser and then place a cap unit (with a valve) on the end of riser from which oil was leaking, and then a pipe would be set up to direct oil from the cap unit to the surface of Gulf of Mexico where it could be collected. It was on May 28, 2010, that Admiral Thad Allen (the "National Incident Commander") approved the idea that the first barrier island could be built off the coast of Louisiana, and, by the way, since early May 2010, BP had been working on drilling two relief wells, the first of which would not be finished by at least sometime in mid-August. Wednesday, June 2, 2010--on this day, during the procedure to cut of the riser pipe with a diamond-edge saw, the diamond-edge saw being used got stuck in the riser pipe, and it would take a short time to free the saw, and, ultimately, BP would have the "lower marine riser package cap" in place to capture some oil leaking from the riser. It was on Thursday, June 3, 2010, that the federal government sent BP a clean-up bill--for initial costs--of sixty-nine-million dollars, the first bill of a number of bills that were expected to be sent. The first leaked oil to reach beaches of Florida reached beaches of the "panhandle" region on Friday, June 4, 2010. And BP began to do some burning of captured oil on Wednesday, June 16, 2010. By the way, it was around June 17, 2010, that the public was really learning that Kevin Costner (the actor) was involved in a company (Ocean Therapy Solutions) that had developed centrifuge-type machines that could extract oil from water, and each machine could clean up to about two-hundred gallons a minute. U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman struck down the Barack Obama administration's six-month-oil-drilling ban on June 22, 2010; the oil-drilling ban had been put in place on May 27, 2010. On Tuesday, June 29, 2010, Tropical Strom Alex was affecting the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, making rough waves, so, for one, skimming ships were sent to ports, and shore cleanup efforts were closed down for, for instance, Louisiana and Alabama. A Taiwanese skimmer known as "A Whale"--dubbed the largest in the world--began doing skimming work in the oil-rig-disaster area on Saturday, July 3, 2010, and, around this time, an official and complete reason for the explosion of the oil rig was yet to unknown. On Tuesday, July 6, 2010, the Barack Obama administration filed a lawsuit with the U.S. 5th District Court of Appeals--the goal was to get the court to overturn a recent judgment that had been made that struct down a six-month drilling ban imposed by the Barack Obama administration--and on July 8, 2010, the previous ruling was upheld. On the weekend of Saturday, July 10, 2010, crews were working remove the current cap on the leading pipe and replace the cap with a new cap, which could--if the event was successful--allow them to completely capture leaking oil; the current cap had been set in place on June 4, and the new cap was called "Top Hat Number 10." The head of the U.S. Department of the Interior, Ken Salazar, announced a new six-month moratorium on deep-water drilling on Monday, July 12, 2010, and the new moratorium had a number of requirements that oil companies had to meet before they could continue drilling operations. On Monday, July 12, 2010, a skimmer ship called The Helix began operating near the site of the former oil rig, and on this day, a new cap was set in place over leak site, and on Thursday, July 15, 2010, after valves on the cap had been closed, it looked as if the cap was working and the leak was, in essence, being choked off, and the drilling of two relief wells as still going on. By Saturday, July 17, 2010, at least, it was evident that the new cap was doing what it was designed to do for the most part, and by Wednesday, August 4, 2010, BP had very recently been able to fill the oil line with heavy mud in a procedure called a "static kill" and were planning to shoot cement down the line, and, on this day, Barack Obama had to admit in public that oil-rig event was "close to coming to an end." On Thursday, August 5, 2010, BP finished pumping cement in to the well. And on Wednesday, December 1, 2010, the Barack Obama administration announced an oil-drilling ban for the eastern Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Coast, and the Pacific Coast in relation to U.S. waters as part of a five-year plan, so the Barack Obama administration reduced the number of areas in which oil drillers can seek oil, reducing the potential amount of oil that companies associated with the U.S. can acquire from waters associated with the United States of America, meaning the country will be more dependent on oil from other countries.
* * * Now Add This to the General History * * *
The previous section of this document gave you a quick outline of events that have happened since the oil rig known as Deepwater Horizon blew up in the Gulf of Mexico. That information is not enough for you to have in mind to understand why I would say that Barack Obama has been purposely working to hurt beaches of the United States of America, which in turns hurts the fishing industry, the hotel industry, and the tourism industry--or, really, the economy of the United States of America. This section provides events and facts that you can tie to the general knowledge that you have in mind, and the events go beyond what can be called general events that have happen and show the bad work done by Barack Obama and the Barack Obama administration, some things of which are unethical and some of which are illegal.
It was not till about eight days after the explosion of the oil rig had occurred that Barack Obama really addressed the matter in a speech, and Barack Obama would make quick trips to the Gulf of Mexico, such as on May 2, 2010, May 28, 2010, June 4, 2010, and Monday, June 16, 2010/Tuesday, June 15, 2010.
The Merchant Marine Act of 1920, a portion of which is specifically called the Jones Act, has been one reason that foreign entities have been barred from helping to contain leaked oil and keep leaked oil from beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, and the act as it exists today, supposedly, exists to protect U.S. jobs in the shipping industry, keeping, in essence, non-U.S. citizens from being involved in moving goods and people in U.S. waters or at U.S. ports, but the U.S. President can give out wavers.
Since April 20, 2010, a man who has been working hard to try to protect the beaches and such of Louisiana has been the Governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal. Around May 9, 2010, Bobby Jindal, was pushing the idea of getting BP to pay for dredging work that would create barrier islands offshore from beaches of Louisiana, which would help keep oil from beaches. By May 24, 2010, leaked oil had already reached 65 miles of U.S. shoreline, and, on this day, Bobby Jindal was yet waiting for the federal government to give permission for barriers islands to be built offshore from Louisiana so that leaked oil could be blocked from hitting more beaches of Louisiana, and Bobby Jindal was also waiting for the federal government to provide more booms to block oil or corral leaked oil, and on Wednesday, June 2, 2010, Barack Obama ordered BP to pay for the building of barriers islands, and the amount being talked about then was $360-million. On June 9, 2010, Bobby Jindal took matters into his own hands and ordered barges to be sent out on waters near Louisiana to suck up leaked oil. On June 17, 2010, and June 18, 2010, Governor Bobby Jindal had a problem--barges that he had allowed to work in the Gulf of Mexico to suck up leaded oil where kept from going out to work by the U.S. Coast Guard, and it seems the barges were stopped because the U.S. Coast Guard had to see whether or not the barges has fire extinguishers and life vests.
In November 2009, the Climategate Scandal broke (you are urged to see the document entitled "CAP AND TRADE" and Carbon Dioxide Facts and Nonsense, which can be reached by using this Carbon link), and the what became public knowledge is the manmade-global-warming idea or the manmade-climate-change idea was a hoax, which was being pushed by, for example, communist environmentalists, but since November 2009, Barack Obama has continued to push for cap-and-trade rules for the country and has continued to attack industries in the country that have ties to "carbon," such as the coal-fired-power-plant industry. On May 22, 2010, Barack Obama, through an Executive Order, created an investigative panel--the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling Commission--one purpose of which was make recommendations about environmental precautions related to drilling for oil in waters related to the country. Over the next several weeks, the seven-member panel would be filled with seven individuals, and, by the way, the panel was designed to be a bipartisan entity, and in the middle of July 2010, when the panel would meet for the first time, six of the members of the panel would: Bob Graham (a Democrat and a former governor of Florida), William K. Reilly (a so-called Republican and a former head of the Environmental Protection Agency (under U.S. President George H.W. Bush), which is an anti-industry government entity in the country today), Richard Lazarus (an environmental lawyer and an author of books about environmental law), Frances Beinecke (the president of the National Resources Defense Council), Don Boesch (the vice chairman of the Ocean Studies Board of the National Research Council and a member of the National Academies Committee on America's Climate Choices, and Cherry Murray (the Dean of the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (Harvard University is a hotbed of socialists and communists and such). Truly, the commission could not be called a bipartisan commission, but it could be called a left-wing environmental commission, which is filled with environmentalists.
It was on June 11, 2010, that FOXNews.com reported that a small group of oil experts (who had been recommended by the National Academy of Engineering) were complaining the Barack Obama administration, such as Barack Obama and Ken Salazar, misrepresented them in a report dealing with deep-water drilling, such as by adding two paragraphs that promoted a moratorium on deep-water drilling, which they had not promoted, and, by the way, it is was also reported that Ken Salazar had apologized for the incident (on Thursday, June 10, 2010) (LaJeunesse, William. "Experts Say White House 'Misrepresented' Views to Justify Drilling Moratorium." FOXNews.com, 11 June 2010).
Having waited long enough for permission from the federal government--particularly the National Guard--to build barriers walls or barrier islands off the shores of Louisiana, Governor of Louisiana Bobby Jindal, on June 14, 2010, ordered people to start building barrier walls, which were supposed to block leaked oil from getting to beaches of Louisiana.
On Wednesday, June 16, 2010, Barack Obama met with executives of BP, and the meeting was a private meeting at the White House. What came out of the meeting was that BP agreed to provide over the near future twenty-billion dollars to an "escrow account," money that would be used--as it was publicly reported--to pay on claims made by individuals or businesses affected economically by the oil-rig disaster, and it was reported that the money would be watched over by a "third party," though Barack Obama would make his "Pay Czar" the man in charge of the entity. In addition, a few days before the meeting took place, Barack Obama had announced a moratorium on oil drilling in some areas--till the cause of the accident could be determined and steps to stop a potential new accident from happening could be put in place--and that action was going to put people out of work--and, on this day--Wednesday, June 16, 2010--BP had agreed to, in essence, hand over about one-hundred-million dollars to foundation, and that money would be used to pay money to people who had been put out of work by Barack Obama's moratorium.
In the previous paragraph, you will see "escrow account" is mentioned. What was meant by "escrow account" by the federal government in this instance is not what is normally known as an "escrow account." Let me talk about an "escrow account" through an example. Pretend you have two persons--Bob and Ema. Ema made twenty-five tiny Japanse dolls and wants to sell them. Bob wants to buy the dolls. Both Ema and Bob want to protect themselves--Ema does not want to lose the dolls without getting paid, and Bob wants to make sure he does not give away money and make sure he get the dolls. Bob and Ema work through a "thirty party," who administers an "escrow account." The account is set up with the "thirty party," such as a banker at a bank, and Bob deposits enough money to pay for the twenty-five dolls, and the banker is required to pass the money on to Ema when she has put the dolls in the control of the thirty party and only then or when the dolls are delivered to Bob. By the way, some type of contract is set up between Ema and Bob, which might note how payment is made and how shipment of the dolls is made. When the thirty party is sure that the dolls have been delivered and are out of the control of Ema, the third party will pass the escrow money on to Ema. Through this arrangement, there is an exchange of something for money--dolls for money--between two entities. That is one idea of an escrow account. Whatever an escrow account is it is not a situation in which the Executive Branch of the government--in this case Barack Obama--administers an account and passes on money from PB to others. Notice, there is no exchange of money and goods involved in Barack Obama's idea of an "escrow account." Really, Barack Obama's account is nothing more than an account in which BP is forced to deposit money, and then the supervisor of the account can pay out money as the supervisor wishes and can determine who does and who does not get money Notice the paying out of money by BP was not required by an order of a court, which is the normal way in which claims for damages takes place in the country (though a mediator or an arbitrator might be involved). What a person must also keep in mind is, since the federal government is controlling the money, the account could be subject to corruption--money could be directed to purposes not related to the oil-rig disaster, because this government--this Barack Obama administration--does have a tendency to be untrustworthy, as can be shown by examining how money of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 has been spent (the act was not really used to create jobs in the private sector as had been the reason that had been announced publicly as the purpose). [Incidentally, in 2008, the TARP fund was created by the federal government, and the TARP fund was not used as it was publicly announced that it was going to be used.]
In the opening paragraph of this section, you see that one-hundred-million dollars were taken from BP for a "foundation," and there are several problems wrong with the "foundation" idea. Generally speaking, companies set up foundations so that they can freely give to causes, such as to promote the arts, and companies donate to foundations, which distribute money to some type of cause, such as a music scholarship. A "foundation" in the normal terms is not set up as something in which a company is forced to deposit money, and then the money is used to pay workers who have been put out of work by an order made by a President of the United States of America.
Note: Barack Obama got money out of a company without any court action, and some of that money is money that had been invested in the company by investors, such as retirees in the United States of America and retirees in England, who, it is very likely, use earnings obtained from their investments in the company to live, such as to buy food and pay rent.
Now, I must tell the significance of what Barack Obama did at the meeting, and the explanation does contain commentary. What Barack Obama did is against The U.S. Constitution, since the President does not have the power, as noted in The U.S. Constitution, to get money from a business in such a way--the court system of the country is used in cases of claims. What has happened is a precedent has been set, in which Barack Obama can now push another company to give up money for some reason, and that is bad for the country. It is not up to a U.S. President to take money from one entity and give it to another. In addition, it seems very likely to me that BP did not give up the money voluntarily. It is very likely to me Barack Obama threatened BP, such as by saying, if you do not give up some money, you will be denied drilling permits by my administration or we will cancel your drilling permits or we will find you have violated some regulations. In essence, I see what Barack Obama did as coercion and extortion, which he has done in the past (and evidence of that can be seen in either my document entitled Frank Beckman Interviews Tom Lauria, an Attorney in Chrysler Mess or my document entitled Madness in a President and Other Matters of a Defective Mind, and these documents can be reached by using the links at the end of this document).
Keep this in mind: Barack Obama circumvented the legislative system of the country and worked as a dictator (a thug), and it is public knowledge that the twenty-billion-one-hundred-million dollars is not a "cap" (or upper amount that BP will have to pay).
On Wednesday, June 16, 2010, Kenneth Feinberg, who had already held the position of "Pay Czar" for Barack Obama, became the person to oversee the "escrow account" associated with BP, given that duty by Barack Obama, and that meant the "impartial" idea for the escrow account was clearly not tied to impartiality (Jaffe, Matthew. "Ken Feinberg Named BP Oil Escrow Pay Czar." ABC News, 17 June 2010.).
On June 16, 2010, the Miami Herald published a report on the Internet that noted that the White House requested fifteen-million dollars for fund the commission that will investigate the oil-rig disaster, looking for the cause of the disaster (The Associated Press. "WH requests $15 million for oil spill commission." Miami Herald, 16 June 2010.). [Commentary: I wonder how the figure of fifteen-million dollars was arrived at. The figure seems high to me. The money does seem to me to be something that could be used inappropriately, and it seems to me some of the money could be used in unethical ways.]
Oh, there is a man named Ben Stein who has appeared in television commercials and has written on conservatives topics, such as in The American Spectator, over the last couple decades. On June 16, 2010, The American Spectator placed a piece on the Internet that had been written by Ben Stein entitled "Our Caudillo President" (Stein, Ben. "Our Caudillo President." The American Spectator, 16 June 2010, 6:10 a.m.). In the story, Ben Stein noted that he called the White House press office to get an answer to--Where does the authority come from for the President to be able to have BP give up money for, for example, the "escrow" account"? The answer was Barack Obama needed no law, and, in fact, Ben Stein reported in the story that the final answer was: "None needed."
On Thursday, June 17, 2010, people were clearly angry with and horrified by what Barack Obama had done the previous day, and I was one person, and some people were not and were even supportive of Barack Obama's action. The people who supported him were clearly "liberals," such as communists, who are known to lie regularly (since "the ends justifies the means"), and the people who did not support Barack Obama's action were those who saw how The U.S. Constitution had been thrown aside again. Look at the difference between two persons:
On Thursday, June 17, 2010, U.S. Representative Joe Barton (a Republican related to Texas) said during the subcommittee meeting: "...I'm speaking this totally for myself. I'm not speaking for the Republican Party. I'm not speaking for anybody in the House of Representatives but myself. I'm ashamed of what happened in the White House yesterday. I think it is a tragedy of first proportion that a private corporation can be subjected to what I would characterize as a 'shakedown'--in this case a twenty-billion-dollar 'shakedown.' But I apologize. I do not want to live in a country where anytime a citizen or a corporation does something that is legitimately wrong is subject to some sort of political pressure that is--again in my words--amounts to a 'shakedown.' So I apologize!...."
Also on Thursday, June 17, 2010, U.S. Representatives Edward Markey (a Democrat related to Massachusetts) made some statements. For example, Edward Markey said: "...Not only is the compensation fund that was created yesterday at the White House in a agreement reached between BP and President Obama not a slush fund and not a 'shakedown,' rather it was the government of the United States working to protect the most vulnerable citizens that we have in our country right now, the residents of the Gulf. It is BP's spill, but it is America's ocean, and it is American citizens who are being harmed...." And Edward Markey also said: "...It is not a 'shakedown.' It is in fact President Obama ensuring that a company, which has spoiled the waters of our nation, is made accountable for the harm which is done to our people. No, this is no a 'shakedown' of the company. This is the American government--President Obama--ensuring that this company is made accountable and sending a signal to all other companies that seek to treat ordinary American families in a way that can destroy their entire family's history..." [I say in jest, "Yes, companies and corporations--made up of ordinary U.S. citizens--purposely work to destroy their customers and employees and families."]
And on Thursday, June 17, 2010, U.S. Representative Joe Barton apologized to fellow Congressmen and such for having used "shakedown" in his speech of the morning of June 17, 2010, and, in fact, he said: "...I apologize for using the term 'shakedown' with regard to yesterday's actions at the White House in my opening statement this morning, and I retract my apology to BP...." (Allen, Jonathan, and Jake Sherman. "Joe Barton retracts apology to BP." Politico, 17 June 2010, 12:46 p.m. EDT.).
Commentary note: The current leaders--somewhat "liberal" people--of the Republican Party had sort of forced Joe Barton to retract his words, and the action taken by the leaders of the Republican Party showed that they are wishy-washy and spineless, given how grievous Barack Obama's action was.
On Thursday, June 17, 2010, the CEO of BP, Tony Hayward, appeared before a U.S. Senate committee headed by U.S. Senator Henry Waxman, and Henry Waxman asked Tony Hayward a number of questions, doing so as part of what Henry Waxman would call an investigation, and here are portions of what the two men said.
I start by presenting one statement made by Tony Hayward:
Answering a question about whether or not corners were cut, Tony Hayward said: "Well, I think it's too early to reach conclusions with respect, Mr. Chairman. The investigations are ongoing...."
Now, here is an exchange of dialogue:
Henry Waxman: "...It's clear to me that you don't want to answer our questions, because is, isn't it true you've served your life in the, in BP, only recently being, become the CEO, but haven't been in this business most of your professional life?"
Tony Hayward: "I'm been in this business twenty-eight years."
Henry Waxman: "Twenty-eight years. So you should have some knowledge about these issues. And I sent you a letter in advance asking you you're going to be asked these issues and to be prepared to answer it. How can you explain this decision when you ignore...yourself that people that work for you who should have known that your directive to be a laser on safety, how could they have ignored these warnings from people right within your company?...."
Here is yet another exchange of dialogue:
Tony Hayward: "...I'm not prepared to draw conclusions about this accident till such time as the investigation is concluded."
Henry Waxman: "So this is an investigation. That's what this committee is doing. It's investigatory committee, and we expect you to cooperate with us. Are you failing to cooperate with other investigators as well? Because they're gonna have a hard time reaching conclusions if you stonewall them, which is what we seem to be getting today."
Tony Hayward: "I'm, I'm not stonewalling. I , I simply was not involved in the decision-making process. I looked at the documents. And until the investigations are complete--yours and others..."
Henry Waxman: "That's somebody else's conclusion. What's your conclusion?"
Tony Hayward: "I haven't drawn a conclusion, Mr. Chairman."
Next, I offer this statement by Henry Waxman:
Henry Waxman: "...I, I, I'm just amazed at this testimony, Mr. Hayward. You're not taking responsibility. You're kicking the can down the road and acting [as] if you have nothing to do with this company and nothing to do with the decisions. I find that irresponsible...."
And now here is the last presentation covering the meeting of the two men:
Henry Waxman: "...We had a hearing earlier this week, the CEOs from the other, ah, oil companies. They, ah, were unanimous in their view that you made risky decisions that their companies would not have made, and in particular they criticize your decision to install a, a long single string of casing from the top of the well to the bottom on April 19th, the day before the blowout. They said this well-design choice provided an unrestricted pathway for gas to travel up the well in the annular space that surrounded the casing. Did BP make a judge, a fundamental misjudgment in selecting the single string of casing?"
Tony Hayward: "I wasn't involved in any of that decision...."
Henry Waxman: "No! I want to know your view of it now that you know about it, now that what your company did pursuant to your laser request that they be attuned to safety, do you think that was a mistake?"
Tony Hayward: "The original well design was... It was approved by the MMS."
Really, what this section shows is that Henry Waxman was badgering a witness and that Tony Hayward did not want to make conclusions when the real conclusions were not known to him because what he might say--which might be incorrect and based on incomplete information--could later be used in court action.
Remember: Some of the first people that Barack Obama sent to the Gulf of Mexico right after the explosion had occurred were lawyers.
On June 17, 2010, at another U.S. House of Representatives subcommittee meeting--this one headed by Bart Stupak (a Democrat related to Michigan)--Bart Stupak got into a discussion with another member of the committee, Michael Burgess (a Republican related to Texas), and here is some of what the two men said to each other:
Michael Burgess: "...Mr. Hayward has brought up a point about he followed the procedures of MMS. I, once again, it is so critical that we...the federal regulatory agencies in this committee to ask them questions...."
Bart Stupak: "Mr. Burgess, as you know...."
Michael Burgess: "...after all these hearings is really disturbing to me...."
Bart Stupak: "...Reclaim my time, Mr. Burgess. As you know, we, we have a methodical method we've been using in this investigation. We've gone through it very methodically. You know, we have at least two more hearings. One was scheduled for Tuesday, but your request and my request were moved...back a little more. There will be at least two more hearings. We'll do our job. We'll have all parties here before this committee at the appropriate time."
Michael Burgess: "Quite clearly Mr. Hayward is not prepared to answer the questions, and we need to get MMS in here to do that as well."
Bart Stupak: "And MMS isn't going to help Mr. Hayward answer the questions. Mr. Hayward has to answer the questions himself."
Michael Burgess: "I will just submit that with the...."
Bart Stupak: "We're in recess until, until two o'clock...."
That covers a portion of dialogue between the two men.
Also during this subcommittee hearing, Michael Burgess said: "...I don't see what apologies are in order, but, Mr. Chairman, I do have serious questions about the set up of this fund that we heard about from the White House yesterday, and I hope this committee will stay, ah, engaged in oversight of that activity as well. It's still disturbing to me that we have not had anyone from the federal regulatory side...ton of other people here and questioned them. But really we need Mr. Salazar here. We need whoever the Minerals and Management people were who approved that exploration plan that was woefully in adequate. Shame on you, Mr. Hayward, for submitting it. But shame on us for accepting it with just simply a rubber stamp...."
By the way, some assets of BP are being used as security in relation to the money that BP was coughing up to, for instance, the escrow account (Loven, Jennifer. "BP Apologizes, Guarantees $20 Billion for Gulf." blackamericanweb.com, 17 June 2010, 3:46 a.m.), and, in essence, a person can determine that the government sort of has a lien on those assets that are being used as security, which, if the company were to go bankrupt, could become the true property of the federal government, which would then be an owner or the owner of an oil company, which would be the start of the federal government's nationalizing of the oil industry (in essence, the federal government has already nationalized some financial institutions, some car companies, and the student-loan industry).
Now I have a collection of a few facts and thoughts, some of which are nonsense thoughts of others. On Saturday, June 19, 2010, many entities and people of the main media who are "liberal"--such as The New York Times--were doing stories that noted that Tony Hayward had attended a yacht race off the coast of England in which his yacht was involved on that day (Robbins, Liz. "BP Chief Draws Outrage for Attending Yacht Race." The New York Times, 19 June 2010.). On Saturday, June 19, 2010, Barack Obama and Joseph Biden (the U.S. Vice President) went golfing at Andrews Air Force Base (Johnson, Bridget. "Obama hits golf course with Biden on another hot, humid weekend." The Hill, 19 June 2010, 6:35 p.m.). On Monday, June 21, 2010, "liberals" were yet trying to imply that Tony Hayward was a bad person for having been at the yacht race, but they defended Barack Obama for having played golf. Generally speaking, every weekday, the White House holds a press briefing, and, usually, the White House is represented by Robert Gates (in these days of the Barack Obama administration), but on Monday, June 21, 2010, Bill Burton was substituting for Robert Gates, and, at one point, Bill Burton said: "...All the different issues that the President's dealing with, I think that a little bit of time to himself on Father's Day weekend, ah, probably does us all good as American citizens--that our President is taken that time...."
On Sunday, June 20, 2010, Rahm Emanuel was on Sundays political news shows/talk shows, such as in recorded-earlier form, and here are some comments that he made:
"...We can all conclude that Tony Hayward is not gonna have a second career in PR consulting. This has just been part of a long line of PR gaffs and mistakes. This is a mistake, and it's a big mistake. Like others he's done in a sense when he said himself, '...He got his life back.' Well. that's what's more important is to the people down there, in that area have their life back. Do they have their livelihood back?...." [This statement was made to Jake Tapper, who was hosting This Week on ABC-TV and it pertained to the yachting incident.]
"...BP originally was gonna do one relief well. We forced them to do a second relief well. They we're gonna do that. BP originally had a, a plan on capturing a certain amount of oil. We forced that as you know. Today's reports, they're up to 25,000. They originally weren't thinkin' about twenty-billion dollars, and they originally weren't thinkin' about escrow account and forcing tha, them to do that...."
"...There are certain things that they had to be pushed--not certain things--a lot of things that they had to be pushed to do...."
"...You can say it's a political gift for us, and it is. But it's dangerous for the American people, because while the ranking Republican who'd have oversight in the energy industry and if the Republicans were the majority would have actually the gavel and the chairman ship. That's not a political gaff. Those are preparative remarks. That is a philosophy. That is an approach to what they see. They see the aggrieved party here is BP not the fishermen. And remember this is not just one person. Rand Paul running for Senate in Kentucky, what did he say? He said the way that BP was being treated was un-American. Other members of the Republican leadership have come to the defense of BP and attacked the administration for forcing them to set up a escrow account and fund it to the level of twenty-billion dollar. These aren't political gaffs. That is an approach to...the government's the problem. And in this balance or the difference here is BP made a mess and the government and also the President's view, and in certain areas, like MMS, hasn't done it's job. Now you guys... He's not even coherent...."
"...What Joe Barton did is remind the American people, in case they forgot, this is how the Republicans would govern...." [Of course, the subject was Joe Barton's apologizing to BP for the behavior of Barack Obama's coercive action, which, by the way, forces BP to pay at least five-billion a year for the next four years, which is that twenty-billion dollar figure.].
On Monday, June 21, 2010, Kenneth Feinberg--Barack Obama's 'Pay Czar'--was interviewed by Matt Lauer on Today, which is a weekday show on NBC-TV, and here is a portion of the interview in text form:
Matt Lauer: "...What are the absolute criteria they need to keep in mind to know whether they qualify for filing a claim?"
Kenneth Feinberg: "Well, they should file the claim anyway, ah, because, obviously, we haven't worked out every variation of what you call correctly is 'collateral causation.' But one, one thing we learned from the Nine-Eleven fund, you recall, Congress passed that law and said that, when it comes to whether or not an injury--financial injury--was caused by the terrorist attack, look to the local law of the state where you live. So, if a Boston restaurant says we're losing business in our restaurant because we can't get shrimp from the Gulf, let's take a look at Massachusetts law. Would Massachusetts law recognize that claim? If it would, I will...."
Matt Lauer: "Right..."
Kenneth Feinberg: "...If it wouldn't, I won't."
Matt Lauer: "...They're gonna...."
Kenneth Feinberg: "...That might work here...."
Commentary: I now have a piece of commentary to show up the ignorance of Kenneth Feinberg's thoughts of the previous section. Given what Kenneth Feinberg said, I could say, "So, if I cannot see bikini gals at the beaches on the Gulf Coast because the oil is keeping the bikini gals away from the beaches, I could make a claim." What would that amount for a claim be? I guess I could ask for travel and room expenses. I guess I could ask for mental anguish. Do you see how defective Kenneth Feinberg's thoughts are, allowing for things not directly affected by the oil spill and allowing people not in the Gulf of Mexico area to make claims?
Remember: On Tuesday, June 22, 2010, U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman struck down the six-month deep-water-oil-drilling ban that had been created on May 27, 2010, and about a week and a half later, the Barack Obama administration went to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th District to appeal that ruling, and on July 8, 2010, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th District upheld the previous ruling.
I happened to catch The Mark Levin Show, a nationally syndicated radio show hosted by Mark R. Levin on Tuesday, June 22, 2010. During the show, Mark Levin played audio of a video of U.S. Senator George LeMieux (a Democrat related to Florida), which had been made public on June 21, 2010. A one point, I heard George LeMieux say: "Well, the thing I think is outrageous sit that we only have twenty skimmers off the shores of Florida. There are two-thousand skimmers in the United States. We haven't even asked, as the federal government, for those skimmers to come to the Gulf." I say that that is interesting news. And I also heard George LeMieux say: "And the federal government who wants to take over every other aspect of our life can't get this one thing right that they should be doing right. So I talked to the President about it. He doesn't seem to know the situation about foreign skimmers and domestic skimmers. He said to me, 'Look, some of these skimmers we can't take from other places in the country because they may need them for an oil spill.' That's like, you know, me saying, 'Well, I can't send a fire truck if your house that's burning down because another house may burn down.' It doesn't make any sense..."
On Tuesday, June 22, 2010, Charlie Crist, the governor of Florida, had this to say: "...I, I think that the administration has gotten up to speed. Ah, I'm very pleased about that. And I got ta tell ya I, I'm very pleased how they pushed BP, ah, and we have encouraged that. I mean, you know, the idea of a twenty-billion escrow I think is a very good start, and it's, ah, it's long over due...."
Since 2008 at least, it has been a number of nationally syndicated talk-radio show hosts who have been instrumental in showing the bad that is Barack Obama, and some of those talk-show hosts have been Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levin. On Wednesday, June 30, 2010, Sean Hannity did an interview with Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana (it taking place at the beginning of the second hour of the three hours of the show, The Sean Hannity Show). Here is a portion of the interview in text form:
Bobby Jindal: "...I will tell your listeners this--We, ab, we are in a war to save our, our way of life down here. We're gonna win this war! Don't make no mistake about it. You know, defeat is not an option. I just wish our, our federal government had the same sense of urgency. You know, it feels like--somebody asked me today--I said, 'It feels like we take two steps forward and then another step back.' With the red tape, the bureaucracy, the permits, they need to decide...they need to get in this war to win it...to lead or get out of the way. They just...it's just frustrating fighting the bureaucracy some days as is it to actually fight the oil itself."
Sean Hannity: "You know, I, I, I saw when you first uttered those words--'We're fighting a war on here, and this is a full frontal assault on our Louisiana way of life.' I, I watched James Carvell, you know--How many days ago? What forty days ago?--say, 'We're dying down here!' Ah, here it is finally on day seventy-one--day seventy-one--the administration is finally accepting help from foreign countries, although, as far as I know, they have not lifted the Jones Act, but they are gonna accept international assistance from twelve of the thirty countries that offered assistance. We know the Dutch, for example, we know the French, for example, offered it as early as day three. Ah, why did it take seventy-one days, governor?"
Bobby Jindal: "Amazing the thing, you know, they're bragging about a hundred-and-thirty-nine skimmers are coming, and, and, you know, I'm certainly glad the skimmers--we need more skimmers--it's too late once the oil gets in the wetlands. But you're right, it's over seventy days. Why are the skimmers coming today? For weeks, we've been asking the adminstration--asked the President directly--wave some of these federal regulations. You've got, even, not even overseas, even here in this country, you got skimmers and boom and Navy facilities, civilian facilities across this country--because of regulations, they're sitting in warehouses, they're sitting at docks not being used. That's crazy! When you have an emergency, when you have a crisis, one of the first things you should do is use the resources that are available to ya. But, Sean, this has been a pattern. You know, the very beginning, they told us they were going to have a detailed plan. They didn't have one. On May 2, we put together--May 2, May 3--we put together a plan with coastal, ah, parish presidents, and, and they, we gave them our plan, we said this is what you need to do to defend our coasts. They told us the boom, the skimmers would come. They didn't come in time. We told them to use jack-up barges to move the boom as the oil moves, 'cause you can't just fight the, the static war. When we knew they weren't going to provide us enough boom and skimmers, we came with another plan, a second plan, which allows us to do sand drudging. Let us just create just a hundred miles of sand berms. We'll protect over four-thousand miles of our coast. It took them a month--a month--to review this permit. We fought them for a month. We could have have dumped ten miles of sand berms in that time. We finally get approval, and--this is infuriating--they shut us down for almost a week after we finally get approval, we start building land, we're building a thousand feet of land a day, fighting this oil fifteen to twenty miles off our coast, after, after, just, after a few days of building land, after about a week, they shut us down. They want us to move two miles away. We're drudging within our original permit, but they change they're mind. And here's the infuriating thing, they don't treat this like an emergency. We have to jump through dozens of hoops to get federal agencies to look at things, to sign paperwork, to sign permits. The third example of this. We, we go out there. And so, in the meantime, we lose days of construction activity. The third example. We try to convince them to use vacuum barges, literally--and I wish I were makin' this up--we literally put a truck on a pontoon boat, go out there and vacuum the oil out of the wetland, because we we're tired of just seeing it sit there day after day after day. The National Guard did this. We've wanted to show them this would work. We convinced them. We showed them that it works. Scaled it up. They shut us down for twenty-four hours. Sean, they literally wanted to count life vests and fire extinguishers on these barges for twenty-four hours and, and, finally, they shut 'em down. We could have been vacuuming thousands of gallons of oil. Twenty-four hours later, they come back and admit they don't need to do the inspection. They made a mistake. They don't need the paperwork. They never do the inspections on some of these barges. They let them go back to work. And, and then the latest example. You know, back in, down in Grand Isle, they asked for high-...boom, they didn't get it. They asked for sand dredging. They didn't get it. And so they came up with a third plan to use barges, pilings, and rocks to narrow the passes--there are five passes at Grand Isle--you can keep the oil out of Barataria Bay*. You narrow those passes. Focus your skimmers, your boom on those narrow passes. We met with the President over three week ago--the Mayor and I met with him here in Louisiana asking for his help to cut through the red tape to get this approved. Over three weeks later, as of today, we still don't have the permit we need from the, from the federal government to use those rocks. We got barges and pilings approved. There are literally federal agencies worried that rocks in the water are gonna cause more damage than oil in the wetlands in Barataria Bay*, one of the most productive estuaries for the, the young shrimp and fish that are, are so important for the Gulf. And that's what's frustrating! It's like fighting a war with one hand tied behind your back. There are literally bureaucrats in Washington, D.C.--they don't see the oil, they don't smell it, they don't touch it, it's not their way of life, it's not their home. Can you believe they're literally arguing with us--They're saying, 'Instead of sucking up that, that oil out of the water, we want to go count life jackets. Instead of you putting rocks to block the oil out, we wanna, we wanna think about whether rocks in the water are gonna cause more environmental damage'? It, it's, it's almost comical, it's so absurd the lack of urgency down here." [* = I am uncertain if Bobby Jindal said "Barataria Bay."]
Now, I skip some comments made by Sean Hannity and jump to a comment made by Bobby Jindal in his next segment of comments:
Bobby Jindal: "...Now, we get this arbitrary six-month moratorium, and you're literally gonna put, they're--not you--the federal government's gonna put over twenty-thousand Louisianans out of work...."
Although there was more of the interview that I could present, I end the presentation here, since what is presented helps prove the main goal of this document.
On Wednesday, June 30, 2010, Sean Hannity spoke with Daniel Hannan of the British Parliament on The Sean Hannity Show (the nationally syndicated radio show). The interview covered several topics--from what Barack Obama is doing to the U.S. economy to what Barack Obama has done to BP. At one point during the interview, answering a question about what the British people think of Barack Obama, Daniel Hannan said, "I think so. I mean, don't, don't get me wrong. Um, ah, nobody, ah, nobody's arguing that there shouldn't be consequences for BP. Um, and, and I'm not certainly gonna come on this program as an advocate for big oil companies and has obviously made some big errors. At the way, the...manner in which the administration has picked on it seems to a lot of people in Britain to be unfair. Um, first of all, ah, we had for weeks, the President referring to this company British Petroleum. Now, there hasn't be a company called British Petroleum since 2001, when BP merged with Amoco. Ah, basically, it inherited in North America, ah, somebody else's infrastructure, and, in this case, you know...there were U.S.-based companies involved in the drilling and the operation of the rig. That's not to say that BP was, ah, ah, in the right or is the clear on this. It's simply that, to have turned, to turn, turn this into kind of, ah, attack on, a, a nominally British company--when, in fact, there are six British and six U.S. directors at BP, when there are forty percent British shareholders and thirty-nine percent American shareholders, when it's very much an American oil company, ah, struck people here as a pretty low kind of blow from somebody that, ah leads a country that we think of as an ally." And Daniel Hannan also said, "...But nobody is helping matters by turning this into a squabble and utterly, a squabble of this kind, where, you know, ah, ah, an elected government starts attacking foreign companies...that's the kind of thing you'd expect from Third World dictators. You know, it, it's not something you'd expect from the ally, from the leader of the...friendly democracy. Um, it, although they come after a series of other, ah, indicators that, ah, Barack Obama doesn't have the same affinity with this country that his predecessors--pretty much what all of his predecessors--have had, ah, in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. You know, there was the whole farce of giving back Winston Churchill's bust, who was the. The way he slapped Gordon Brown around at the meeting. There was the, the DVD which didn't work as, as a present. And then much more serious than any of those things is the way in which, ah, your Secretary of State [Hillary Clinton] has used the language of Argentina in pressing their claim to the Falkland Islands. And that really is a, that really is hard to swallow. I mean, you know, you've got some really nasty tin-pocket takers* in South America, ah, backing terrorist Argentina in its claim to territory, all of whose inhabitants want to remain under British sovereignty. And you now got the leader of the 'Free World' lining up with, you know, Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, with Evo Morales in Bolivia, with the old Santinista regime in Nicaragua against us, you know, who are, who are the only fightable contingent with you in Afghanistan. That is harder to take!" [* = It sounded like Daniel Hannan said "tin-pocket takers," but I might be wrong.]
So, the Barack Obama administration had lost two court cases related to a six-month moratorium on deep-water drilling by July 8, 2010--the moratorium had been put in place on May 27, 2010--and then on July 12, 2010, the Barack Obama administration created a new six-month moratorium. With this moratorium, oil companies now had strict new rules that they had to meet before they could even hope to begin drilling again. One rule was that there had to be, in essence, sufficient cleanup equipment nearby from now on, and another rule is that "blowout preventers" had to meet new rules.
The story of the drilling ban did not end in July 2010. On October 12, 2010, the Interior Department of the United States of America--controlled by the Barack Obama administration--did lift the oil-drilling ban. On February 2, 2011, however, U.S. District U.S. District Court Judge Martin Feldman (in New Orleans, Louisiana) made a ruling that noted that the Interior Department of the United States of America--the Barack Obama administration--is in contempt of court, since, for one, although the Interior Department of the United States of America (the head of which was Ken Salazar) had canceled the drilling ban, it had not issued any permits to drill for oil in the last nine months or so, and that meant, in essence, the Interior Department of the United States of America had been violating a court ruling by not allowing oil companies to continue drilling at, at least, thirty-three exploratory oil-drilling sites. By the way, the oil companies involved in the work to prove that the Barack Obama administration had been working in contempt of a court order were awarded attorney's fees from the Barack Obama administration.
Incidentally, on Tuesday, February 15, 2011, Barack Obama held a press conference, and he clearly showed he has no regard for the oil industry by hinting that old energy sources, such as oil, are passé.
* * * What is Left to Say * * *
You now have in your mind--if you read the document from the beginning to this point--a good understanding of what Barack Obama has been doing and not been doing in relation to the Deepwater Horizon oil-rig disaster. In a very short while, you will finish this document and you will gained even more evidence that backs up my main theme. The theme as presented partially in the title of this document says that "Barack Obama wanted to hurt the beaches," but, if space would have allowed for a longer time, I might have expressed the theme as "Barack Obama wanted to hurt the fishing industry, the tourism industry, et cetera, not only in the Gulf of Mexico area but throughout the country by doing damage to the oil industry of the country and everything related to the oil industry in this country." Okay, that would make a bad title, so read on.
Let me run a review of events not associated with the oil-rig disaster--beyond those that have already been presented, such as those stated by Daniel Hannan on June 30, 2010, to Sean Hannity and Sean Hannity's listeners of the day--so that you will understand better of what Barack Obama is. Barack Obama was raised by socialists--if not hard-line socialists--such as his mother. Barack Obama has been trained in the ways of communism and socialism, such as by studying Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer of Realistic Radicals, which was written by Saul Alinsky in the early 1970s. Barack Obama publicly stated that he would tax coal-based generation plants to bankruptcy. Barack Obama has Marxists, praisers of Mao (a killer of millions), sexual deviants, tax cheats, crooks, and racists (blacks who are racist against whites) as close associates or close associates in his administration. Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (February 17, 2010) that was referred to as a jobs-stimulus bill but was nothing of the kind--it was really a slush fund for the Democrat Party. During a nationally television event, Barack Obama said that Cambridge police officers "acted stupidly" in a July 2009 event. Barack Obama avoided talking with U.S. General Stanley McChrystal in the summer 2009 and delayed getting extra troops to the Afghanistan theater (and Barack Obama only made available about a third of the additional troops that had been requested by General Stanley McChrystal). Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Ace (March 2010), which--if not completely repealed soon--will destroy the health-care system of the country, such as by creating a monopolistic government-controlled national-health-care system. Barack Obama made no public mention of the big-time flooding in western Tennessee in May 2010, especially the flooding at Nashville. Barack Obama continually lies in his public statements and speeches, beyond that of all the recent presidents combined (as far as I can tell, since it is nearly every day that I list new lies in my document that is available on the Internet entitled Nonsense Statements and Quotations of Barack Obama). Barack Obama pushes "green" technology, wind power and solar, which I know do not have the ability to power tanks and other war pieces of equipment that could be needed to protect the country, if it were attacked. Barack Obama has put down and apologized for the United States of America while traveling in other places in the world, such as while in Germany and the Middle East. Barack Obama has become friendly with dictators in the world, such as those in Iran, Cuba, and Venezuela; in fact, Barack Obama did not support that Iranian citizens in Iran in the summer 2010 who were protesting the defective election of that summer. In December 2009, Barack Obama attempted to get the Union Nations to pass a climate-change treaty that would have made all U.S. law, such as The United States Constitution, subservient to the treaty, and that would have created one international communist country under which all other countries would be beholden to. During the weekend of June 26-27, 2010, Barack Obama promoted at the "G20" summit in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the idea of having the member nations spend even more money, being the lone voice to push such nonsense economics. Barack Obama has orally attacked doctors and businesses people communities of the country. Barack Obama has showed his displeasure with the citizens in Arizona and the State of Arizona for having passed the Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act of 2010. Barack Obama has bowed to Muslim leaders. A number of times since June 20, 2010, Barack Obama has insulted the people of the United Kingdom.
Remember: I am a person who has put together a number of documents for the Internet that show that Barack Obama is a communist and Marxist (and worse than a communist and Marxist), that show that Barack Obama is a perpetual liar, and show that Barack Obama has done other things to hurt the United States of America since he became the President of the United States of America, and to see the many documents, which focus on topics that range from Sharia law and La Raza to his quotations and his associates, you can at any time go to the Site-Summary Page for The Hologlobe Press, which lists all the documents and which can be reached by using this link: Summary.
Now, you have to make an analysis of what has been presented, but I shall guide you along a bit, since you may be a young person or a naive person or even a foreigner who is highly unfamiliar with the United States of America. I start with the matter of Barack Obama's not taking note of the oil-rig explosion till about eight days after the explosion had occurred, and his not noting the event publicly shows indifference and an uncaring attitude, given that eight days after the event had taken place, leaked oil was close to the short of Louisiana (leaked oil first reached the shore of Louisiana on April 30, 2010). I note that some people--even Rush Limbaugh--put forth the argument that Barack Obama has not temporarily canceled the Jones Act so that he can protect U.S. shipping jobs and such, particularly union-tied jobs, in the Gulf of Mexico, but I say that that thought is at best only part of the reason that the Jones Act has not be put on temporarily out of service, since when oil hits the beaches, it can hurt the jobs of union and union workers in all type of industries along the Gulf of Mexico when tourists stay away, and those jobs can be doormen at hotels, plumbers who do work at hotels, waitresses at restaurants, chefs at restaurants, taxi drivers, electricians, HVAC workers, airline employees, charter boat operators for fishing, et cetera, some of which can be filled by relatives and friends closely tied to people working in the shipping industry on the Gulf of Mexico, such as wives and daughters. Barack Obama has done what no President of the United States of America has even done, and that is pushed a company to give up money--without going through the court system--to pay damages, and that is the way of a dictator and sets a bad precedent for the country since Barack Obama, having gotten away with the act that has no basis in The U.S. Constitution, can use the procedure again in the future--with any company or person, as a dictator in a communist country might. Although there was an oil leak at the site of an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, Barack Obama pushed through an overall deep-water drilling moratorium, which even affected waters near Alaska, and there was no real reason to stop drilling at other oil rigs, given that the explosion was an accident and given that other countries were continuing to drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico, but there was a reason to set down the moratorium if the idea of the moratorium was really to put people out of work and stop people from acquiring oil and designed to send workers to other countries, and it must be remembered, when the moratorium was challenged in court by the Barack Obama administration (in June 2010 and July 2010) and canceled by two different judges, the Barack Obama administration created a slightly different six-month moratorium on July 12, 2010, which had new rules that would lead to determining whether or not, for instance, an oil company could start using an oil rig again, and I say that, generally speaking, the harsh rules were purposely put in place to delay the ability of oil companies to start drilling again, since the rules now forced oil companies to spend more money and time to do things and get things in place--if possible--before they could ever hope to drill again, and, remember, their ability to drill again was at the whim of people who would determine whether or not requirements were met and who could take a lot of time to make their decisions about whether or not requirements were met. In early June 2010, Bobby Jindal met with Barack Obama and urged Barack Obama to help cut through the red tape, and it seems Barack Obama did not do much if anything to help (remember, I passed along Bobby Jindal's statement that it took the federal government a month or so to give approval for some sand berms). With all the information in mind and with all the information of the document in mind, I say that Barack Hussein Obama, a "ruler" and not a "representative of the people," wanted to hurt the beaches--Barack Obama's delaying and Barack Obama's inaction allowed him to put people out of work, allowed him to make BP (the operator of the oil-rig site) a villain in the eyes of Americans, helped him begin the process to nationalize oil companies in the country, and allowed him to extort money from BP (which is overall a British company and which, being based in Europe, is an enemy of his, given that Barack Obama has done other things to show his displeasure with Europeans).
P.S.: By the way, it was reported on June 24, 2010, by Reuters that Hugo Chavez was set to nationalize oil rigs of a U.S.-based company called Helmerich and Payne, and that nationalizing plan was just another nationalizing event for Hugo Chavez (Daniel, Frank Jack, and Patricia Rondon and Jackie Frank (Reuters).
