Farmers Cope With Roundup-Resistant Weeds

Vatic Note:   This is part of the Eugenics and depopulation program going on since the 20's.  In case you forgot, let me just remind you.  http://www.prisonplanet.com/the-population-reduction-agenda-for-dummies.html , http://www.theoneclickgroup.co.uk/news.php?start=3260&end=3280&view=yes&id=4385#newsposthttp://www.eugenics-watch.com/roots/chap12.html,

(Note from Jim McNulty of "Ban Genetically Engineered Food") What is even more amazing about this article, is that it is posted on a very pro biotech list that I have been watching/reading for many years.

eg 1: “You’re having to add another product with the Roundup to kill your weeds,” said Steve Doster, a corn and soybean farmer in Barnum, Iowa. “So then why are we buying the Roundup Ready product?”

eg2: "the problem has spread, with 10 resistant species in at least 22 states infesting millions of
acres, predominantly soybeans, cotton and corn".

Solutions: Our town has petitioned the county council for two grow domes, one at each end of town, (SMALL TOWN)  then everyone has begun buying heritage seeds and regular non monsanto hybrids for growing the towns food with each person contributing to the care, weeding watering etc of the produce, with protected exposure from the monsanto products.   It appears to be one solution on the short term while we fight this on the long term  The county council approved the project and funded it.   This is what you all need to do in each of your towns.  ACT LOCAL, THINK GLOBAL.  YOU MUST CALL YOUR SENATOR AND CONGRESSMAN TO VOTE AGAINST SB 510 AND THE ACCOMPANYING BILL ON THE HOUSE SIDE THAT HAS ALREADY PASSED THE HOUSE AND IS NOW IN HTE SENATE. 

Farmers Cope With Roundup-Resistant Weeds
provided to vatic project by Gypsy from Australia, and Jim McNulty

DYERSBURG, Tenn. — For 15 years, Eddie Anderson, a farmer, has been a strict adherent of no-till agriculture, an environmentally friendly technique that all but eliminates plowing to curb erosion and the harmful runoff of fertilizers and pesticides.

But not this year.

On a recent afternoon here, Mr. Anderson watched as tractors crisscrossed a rolling field — plowing and mixing herbicides into the soil to kill weeds where soybeans will soon be planted.

Just as the heavy use of antibiotics contributed to the rise of drug-resistant supergerms, American farmers’ near-ubiquitous use of the weedkiller Roundup has led to the rapid growth of tenacious new superweeds.

To fight them, Mr. Anderson and farmers throughout the East, Midwest and South are being forced to spray fields with more toxic herbicides, pull weeds by hand and return to more labor-intensive methods like regular plowing.

“We’re back to where we were 20 years ago,” said Mr. Anderson, who will plow about one-third of his 3,000 acres of soybean fields this spring, more than he has in years. “We’re trying to find out what works.”

Farm experts say that such efforts could lead to higher food prices, lower crop yields, rising farm costs and more pollution of land and water.

“It is the single largest threat to production agriculture that we have ever seen,” said Andrew Wargo III, the president of the Arkansas Association of Conservation Districts.

The first resistant species to pose a serious threat to agriculture was spotted in a Delaware soybean field in 2000. Since then, the problem has spread, with 10 resistant species in at least 22 states infesting millions of acres, predominantly soybeans, cotton and corn.

The superweeds could temper American agriculture’s enthusiasm for some genetically modified crops. Soybeans, corn and cotton that are engineered to survive spraying with Roundup have become standard in American fields. However, if Roundup doesn’t kill the weeds, farmers have little incentive to spend the extra money for the special seeds.

Roundup — originally made by Monsanto but now also sold by others under the generic name glyphosate — has been little short of a miracle chemical for farmers. It kills a broad spectrum of weeds, is easy and safe to work with, and breaks down quickly, reducing its environmental impact.

Sales took off in the late 1990s, after Monsanto created its brand of Roundup Ready crops that were genetically modified to tolerate the chemical, allowing farmers to spray their fields to kill the weeds while leaving the crop unharmed. Today, Roundup Ready crops account for about 90 percent of the soybeans and 70 percent of the corn and cotton grown in the United States.

But farmers sprayed so much Roundup that weeds quickly evolved to survive it. “What we’re talking about here is Darwinian evolution in fast-forward,” Mike Owen, a weed scientist at Iowa State University, said.

Now, Roundup-resistant weeds like horseweed and giant ragweed are forcing farmers to go back to more expensive techniques that they had long ago abandoned.

Mr. Anderson, the farmer, is wrestling with a particularly tenacious species of glyphosate-resistant pest called Palmer amaranth, or pigweed, whose resistant form began seriously infesting farms in western Tennessee only last year.

Pigweed can grow three inches a day and reach seven feet or more, choking out crops; it is so sturdy that it can damage harvesting equipment. In an attempt to kill the pest before it becomes that big, Mr. Anderson and his neighbors are plowing their fields and mixing herbicides into the soil.

That threatens to reverse one of the agricultural advances bolstered by the Roundup revolution: minimum-till farming. By combining Roundup and Roundup Ready crops, farmers did not have to plow under the weeds to control them. That reduced erosion, the runoff of chemicals into waterways and the use of fuel for tractors.

frequent plowing becomes necessary again, “that is certainly a major concern for our environment,” Ken Smith, a weed scientist at the University of Arkansas, said. In addition, some critics of genetically engineered crops say that the use of extra herbicides, including some old ones that are less environmentally tolerable than Roundup, belies the claims made by the biotechnology industry that its crops would be better for the environment.

“The biotech industry is taking us into a more pesticide-dependent agriculture when they’ve always promised, and we need to be going in, the opposite direction,” said Bill Freese, a science policy analyst for the Center for Food Safety in Washington.

So far, weed scientists estimate that the total amount of United States farmland afflicted by Roundup-resistant weeds is relatively small — seven million to 10 million acres, according to Ian Heap, director of the International Survey of Herbicide Resistant Weeds, which is financed by the agricultural chemical industry. There are roughly 170 million acres planted with corn, soybeans and cotton, the crops most affected.

Roundup-resistant weeds are also found in several other countries, including Australia, China and Brazil, according to the survey.

Monsanto, which once argued that resistance would not become a major problem, now cautions against exaggerating its impact. “It’s a serious issue, but it’s manageable,” said Rick Cole, who manages weed resistance issues in the United States for the company.

Of course, Monsanto stands to lose a lot of business if farmers use less Roundup and Roundup Ready seeds.

“You’re having to add another product with the Roundup to kill your weeds,” said Steve Doster, a corn and soybean farmer in Barnum, Iowa. “So then why are we buying the Roundup Ready product?”

Monsanto argues that Roundup still controls hundreds of weeds. But the company is concerned enough about the problem that it is taking the extraordinary step of subsidizing cotton farmers’ purchases of competing herbicides to supplement Roundup.

Monsanto and other agricultural biotech companies are also developing genetically engineered crops resistant to other herbicides.

Bayer is already selling cotton and soybeans resistant to glufosinate, another weedkiller. Monsanto’s newest corn is tolerant of both glyphosate and glufosinate, and the company is developing crops resistant to dicamba, an older pesticide. Syngenta is developing soybeans tolerant of its Callisto product. And Dow Chemical is developing corn and soybeans resistant to 2,4-D, a component of Agent Orange, the defoliant used in the Vietnam War.

Still, scientists and farmers say that glyphosate is a once-in-a-century discovery, and steps need to be taken to preserve its effectiveness.

Glyphosate “is as important for reliable global food production as penicillin is for battling disease,” Stephen B. Powles, an Australian weed expert, wrote in a commentary in January in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The National Research Council, which advises the federal government on scientific matters, sounded its own warning last month, saying that the emergence of resistant weeds jeopardized the substantial benefits that genetically engineered crops were providing to farmers and the environment.

Weed scientists are urging farmers to alternate glyphosate with other herbicides. But the price of glyphosate has been falling as competition increases from generic versions, encouraging farmers to keep relying on it.

Something needs to be done, said Louie Perry Jr., a cotton grower whose great-great-grandfather started his farm in Moultrie, Ga., in 1830.

Georgia has been one of the states hit hardest by Roundup-resistant pigweed, and Mr. Perry said the pest could pose as big a threat to cotton farming in the South as the beetle that devastated the industry in the early 20th century.

“If we don’t whip this thing, it’s going to be like the boll weevil did to cotton,” said Mr. Perry, who is also chairman of the Georgia Cotton Commission. “It will take it away.”

Turkey blocking 3,700 websites, reform needed: OSCE

Vatic Note:   It appears Internet reform (censorship) maybe going global and we best watch for it here as well.   I believe there is a bill in right now and with elections just around the corner for primaries, I suspect it won't pass until after the election.    Lets make sure this doesn't happen by making sure all incumbants except about 5 that are trying to do something, are not reelected at the primary level.

Solution:  Callilng on all hackers world wide to aid all those in Turkey to receive the "Alternative" news on the net that we put out that the normal press does not.   Remember, Turkey is very good friends with Israel and they even made up after their little spat, so we can see where this is coming from given our own house being under assault on this issue.  Find a way now, so that you may help everyone once this goes global.  Hackers will be the saviors of free speech and press if they apply what they know to aiding all peoples in this endeavor.     Thanks in advance.

Columbia Mo SWAT Raid 2/11/2010. Cops Shoot Pets With Children Present

Vatic Note: This is up to show just how bad it is in this country now, that they have militarized law enforcement. http://www.prisonplanet.com/randarmy-report-calls-for-militarized-police-force-for-u-s.html Notice they all now have the same black military type uniform which leads us to ask if this is another move toward globalizing? I don't believe you can even distinquish anymore between different city or county police as we saw at both party conventions. They are no longer here to preserve and protect us, they are now here to control and repress for the ruling minority elite, remember MINORITY means SMALL NUMBERS and without the LEO's, they would be running to the airport to get out of dodge just like they did in Khyrgysztan. As it turned out this guy had done nothing wrong and they shot his dogs in front of his children. I have contacts in MO and its my understanding they are emerging as one of the worse states in the union for this kind of gestapo tactics. I assume they don't care about tourism any longer. Who is the Governor and why have the people of MO elected him? These are the Missouri LEO's who were working with the SPLC and ADL identifying conservatives as "enemy combatants" and terrorists and listed such well known names, as Ron Paul and Chuck Baldwin, two of the least violent people probably on the face of the planet, but POLITICALLY NOT IN STEP WITH THE NAZI'S taking over our country. A political enemy of the dictatorship. A dissenter if you will. Here is another link , to review about this issue. See solution below the video.

A Call for Action:

Columbia Mo SWAT Raid 2/11/2010. Cops Shoot Pets With Children Present

video & commentary provided to Vatic by Jim Kirwan


Once upon a time police needed a reason to ask people for their ID.
Now they no longer need a reason - and we must be able to prove who we are at all times, part of the National ID Card program that they never could quite get off the ground.

No matter they don't need a law anymore they just point guns and give orders - and if we
don't comply IMMEDIATELY they either beat the crap out of you or they shoot you,
with either a taser or bullets depending on their mood and nothing else and kill your dog as well,
this was right down the road from me!

Kinda hard to believe this is REALLY happening but I'm afraid this is going to be the reality for ALL of us real soon! That will lead us to a new reality for them as well. Of course the only people that will be left with guns will be the same criminals that the worthless cops have never cuaght in the first place.

Once they accomplish this little task, then only the thugs in uniform and the outlaws will be armed - the rest of us will just have to protect ourselves the best way we can. . . but I guess that's always been true given the FACT that law-enforcement never was abouot protecting anyone except the filthy rich!


pscyhostyle — May 03, 2010 — This video shows a search warrant served by the Columbia Mo. police department. The cops bust in this guys house in the middle of the night and shoot his two dogs (one a pit bull that was caged in the kitchen and the other a Corgi) with children in the home. it turns out that rather than a big time drug dealer, this guy had a small pipe with some resin in it, a grinder, and what the cops here call "a small amount of marijuana" (meaning less than a few grams). We here in Columbia want everyone to know what kind of police department we have here, check out our "finest" in action.

Solution: This is a hard one. If someone else has ideas on this let me know. A solution may emerge as we deal with this, but I would ask that anyone, anywhere in the world that is having this problem emerging in your city, state, county, or nation, please send us your story. If you have videos then please send us copies. Contact us here on this site through the email address so that we can coordinate such information.

We are definitely at a point, that this does need to be dealt with on a much larger basis and with more organization AND A LOT LESS FEAR. In fact, we better start getting mad and thus convert this fear into action. This can and must be dealt with now before it truly does get out of hand and our people start disappearing. The only way is to EXPOSE, RECORD, REPORT, AND SHARE WITH EVERYONE what is happening and I believe soon, we may need to do the same with the courts. I would ask that whoever recorded this to please record and follow up on what happend to this family and if possible to record what happens in the court room. Thank you. Lets use this as a beginning solution and do so through this vehicle.

Now here is an example of what we can do about this anywhere. When you send in the video or text description of what happened in your town, provide us with either a news clipping or some other public record, but also provide us with info such as we received for the G-20 gestapo convention in Pittsburg, and we will publish it on here to be sent everywhere.

Here is an example of what you can send to us similar to what we received about Pennsylvania, another emerging gestapo state in the home of the birth of our nation. What a putrification of our wonderful land marks of the history of this country and the freedom it inspired and gave to us. Copy this and keep it for reference on the type of info to collect and if you have the names of the officers that committed the Constitution violating offenses, add that in too. It doesn't have to be this detailed and thorough but the more numbers we have the more people we have to call them. It would not be fun for them to be exposed and then have the phones ringing off the hook about their violations of their oaths of office. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain by doing this.

G-20 Protest and Martial Law


Pittsburgh Police deny the right to peaceful assembly and freedom of speech. Call them and tell them how you feel about police state tactics:

Police Chief Nathan Harper 412 323 7800 http://www.city.pittsburgh.pa.us/police/
Mayor's Luke Ravenstahl: 412 255 2626 http://www.city.pittsburgh.pa.us/mayor/  
Emergency Mgmt agency 412 255 2633
Citizens Police Review Board 412 765 8023
City Council http://www.city.pittsburgh.pa.us/council/

Word of police state tactics in Pittsburg may also effect the ol' pocketbook: Tourism is most towns/counties/states big producer of revenue and this would not be good for tourism. See how we can fight back.

Mystery Disease Linked to Missing Israeli Scientist

Vatic Note:   Now we have a new killer disease.   When will it ever stop.  This article below brings up two points,  (when you read the article,  then read the links I have given you, it becomes so obvious how really bad the MSM has become.  Worse than even before and that was bad enough) And check this out for background information on why this might be happening.  http://vaticproject.blogspot.com/2010/04/profitable-depopulation-plot-links-jp.html

1.  That the scientist "they say" was involved in this fungus,  is missing and is from Israel and he was arrested in the states and then disappeared and that was back a year ago or so.  This article says "we don't know why they were chasing him and why they arrested him.   

See article about that chase by the CIA, FBI, and other local law enforcement and the article states clearly as confirmed by Dr. Truman Ott that Moshe was trying to warn us of intentional tainted vaccines in the Ukraine created by and going to be spread by Baxter International.   He wanted Dr. Ott to call the Attorney general to report this before they came for him.   Read the article and once you see the patents, the article about the scape goat, you begin to wonder if this simply isnt' another 9-11 in progress and murder of Americans once again by either foreign interests, or internal for profit interests within the drug industry or government or both as it was on 9-11.  This is serious.   This has to stop, and now.   

2.  That this fungus is relatively unknown to us here in this country and we had never had problems with it in the past.   Now it magically appears and kills people.   The article is here for us to see for ourselves just how bad the disinformation and propoganda is.  In order to do that you will have to read the article, then read the Patents filed by various companies especially recently like Bayer for instance that span approximately 4 years (these are the ones for various processes for "extracting" the DNA from the fungus) recently with none filed in 2009 and yet, there is no vaccine for this as preventative.  So the patents were for extracting this bugs DNA but what for???  Not for a vaccine as it clearly states here.  Rather the patents were for various mechanisms for extracting it and what???  Making it airborne?  Fort Dettrick is mentioned in the article and that would make sense.   Remember Cheney's Pax Americana where he says "..... using bioweapons BY GENOTYPE, for POLITICAL purposes".    We had Baxter send thousands of gallons of tainted flu vaccine containing the live avian flu virus and if it hadn't been for the czech republic testing those vaccines, there would have been millions dead from that vaccine.   Please read all the way through since this is deadly serious and please also review the patents for curing this fungus disease when they clearly state the cure is a regular fungus treatment.  Does that mean then these patented cures are only for some people??? Not everyone?  These are dated 2006, 2007, 2008, and regular fungus treatments have been around much longer than that.   So why new patents in these very recent years??? Is this another deadly drug company bailout???

Then this press discusses Morgellons Disease and then try to blame it on Moshe, while  its been around that it has been spread by chemtrails, and its also airborne, which makes all these diseases easy to spread through the weatherization program.  I am not saying they are doing that, but tests have been done on the chemtrails and fungus and other diseases have been found in the debri.   This was covered in a radio program by Rense some time back probably in early 2009

Mystery Disease Linked to Missing Israeli Scientist
Friday 07 May 2010

by: H.P. Albarelli Jr., t r u t h o u t

Media outlets across the Northwest United States began reporting on April 24 that a strange, previously unknown strain of virulent airborne fungi that has already killed at least six people in Oregon, Washington and Idaho is spreading throughout the region. The fungus, according to expert microbiologists, who have expressed alarm about the emergence of the strain, is a new genotype of Cryptococcus gatti fungi. Cryptococcus gatti is normally found in tropical and subtropical locations in India, South America, Africa and Australia. Microbiologists in the United States are reporting that the strain found here, for reasons not yet fully understood, is far deadlier than any found overseas.  (VN:  these highlighted in black comments are critical to the "real" story here as covered in the vatic note above)

Physicians in the Pacific Northwest are reporting that an undetermined number of people in the region are ill from the effects of the strange strain. Physicians also say that the virulent strain can infect domestic animals as well as humans, and symptoms do not appear until anywhere from two to four months after exposure. Symptoms in humans include a lingering cough, sharp chest pains, fever, night-sweats, weight-loss, headaches and shortness of breath. The strain can be treated successfully, if detected early enough, with oral doses of antifungal medication, but it cannot be prevented, and there is no preventative vaccine. (VN:  This is critical to understanding what is going on here.) Undiagnosed, the fungus works its way into the spinal fluid and central nervous system and causes fatal meningitis. 

The estimated mortality rate is about 25 percent of 21 cases analyzed. Several newspapers and media outlets in the US and overseas quote a researcher at Duke University's Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Edmond Byrnes, as stating: "This novel fungus is worrisome because it appears to be a threat to otherwise healthy people. Typically, we see this fungal disease associated with transplant recipients and HIV-infected patients, but that is not what we are seeing."

Microbiologists and epidemiologists studying the strain say the mystery fungus came from an earlier fatal fungus that was first found on British Columbia's Vancouver Island in the fall of 2001, and perhaps as early as 1999. There the fungus infected and killed dogs, cats, horses, sheep, porpoises and at least 26 people. The disease spreads through spores carried by breezes and wind and when people and animals encounter infected ground where the fungus is present. A number of microbiologists say that the disease has "the potential to essentially travel anywhere the wind or people can carry it." Reads an alarming study authored in part by Duke University's Edmond Byrnes: "The continued expansion of C. gatti in the United States is ongoing, and the diversity of hosts increasing."

Several researchers in California also note that the Cryptococcus gatti fungus has been researched for decades, extending back to the 1950's, at the US Army's biological warfare center, Fort Detrick, in Frederick, Maryland. One microbiologist at the University of California at Los Angeles recounted that the fungus was first brought to the attention of Fort Detrick researchers by British scientists experimenting with the bark of eucalyptus trees from Australia. Army biological warfare reports obtained through the Freedom of Information Act reveal that beginning around 1952 the Army mounted a huge research program involving numerous plant and fungi products, and that well over 300 long-term contracts and sub-contracts were let with over 35 US colleges and universities to carry out this multifaceted research. Examples of this early research in California included experiments and projects at Camp Cooke; Port Huemene; Harpers Lake; Oceanside, and extensive experimentation with wheat stem rust and "various spores" including "several from tropical locations" and cereal rust spores and dyed Lycopodium spores. Several Army reports reveal that private-sector corporations that participated or assisted in these projects were the American Institute of Crop Ecology; the American Type Culture Collection Inc.; University of California; Bioferm Inc. and the Kulijian Corporation.

The same microbiologist, who declined to speak on the record and who recounted extensive fungus work at Fort Detrick, also stated that researchers at Israel's Institute for Biological Research, located in Ness-Ziona about 20 km from Tel Aviv, have worked with the Cryptococcus gatti fungus. They also report that mysterious Israeli-American scientist Joseph Moshe, 56 years old, may have conducted covert studies with the fungus while he was recently living in California.  

This report concerning Moshe is especially interesting because Moshe was briefly in the international spotlight in 2009 when he was the subject of a spectacular chase and arrest by the LA police department and SWAT team, assisted by the FBI, Secret Service, CIA, US Army and several other unidentified federal officials. That highly unusual arrest has never been fully explained to the media, (VN:  See article below this one about the chase, the reason and the disposition of this man, he was trying to tell Mr. Ott on his radio program that the Baxter company was using avian flu bioweapon to kill Ukrainians and that is when the CIA, FBI, and police went after him and shipped him back to Israel) and the whereabouts of Moshe has remained unknown since its occurrence. Compounding the mystery surrounding the Moshe case is that there is another scientist named Moshe Bar-Joseph who works in Israel and who looks remarkably like Joseph Moshe, except that he is about 20 years older.

Why Moshe was pursued and apprehended by the police is a largely unanswered question. (VN:  Its answered, see article below)  According to the Los Angeles media, which recorded the entire incident by helicopter and ground cameras, Moshe claimed to be "a former Mossad microbiologist" who had telephoned a police dispatch number before his pursuit and had made "threatening statements about the White House and the president." Reportedly, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan confirmed this when he spoke with several Los Angeles reporters.  (VN:  Right and there were WMD in Iraq too.)

On August 14, 2009, several Los Angeles police cruisers and an unmarked armored vehicle pursued Joseph Moshe as he drove his red VW automobile several miles through downtown Los Angeles before his car's engine was reportedly knocked out by an electromagnetic pulse. Moshe refused to exit his car when ordered several times by the police, and after the driver's window of his VW was smashed out by a robotic arm and several rounds of tear gas and pepper gas were fired into the vehicle, he still remained behind the wheel, refusing to move. At the time, police officers on the scene were stunned that Moshe was able to withstand three tear gas shells and hosing with pepper spray without moving. Later that day, a Los Angeles law enforcement official said: "I can't explain that; there's no way to explain that."

After his apprehension, Moshe was taken to the Patton State Mental Hospital and then to the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles. Sometime about 60 days later, Moshe was quietly released and his current whereabouts are unknown. Since his arrest became public, reports about Moshe's activities in the US have spread like wildfire, especially across the Internet. Many of these reports are unconfirmed, but a few come from credible sources and have linked Moshe to the grossly underreported outbreak of flu in the Ukraine.  (VN:  Right, he reported what Baxter was doing in the Ukraine and that is why he was chased)

Other reliable sources, including two former Fort Detrick biochemists, have also linked Moshe to a mysterious disease that is becoming alarmingly common in Vermont and other states, including California. The disease is known to have killed or incapacitated at least 10 to 20 rural dwellers and farmers. This disease is said to be Morgellons disease or "a rare, mutated form of Morgellons disease." (VN:  and authorities and doctors and everyone has been saying this disease does not exist, its all in the patients head when in fact tests showed it is what has been sprayed through the chemtrails and is now solidly identified, Did Moshe have access to so many chemtrail distributing planes??? How could he do that by himself? )

Former Fort Detrick scientists, speaking off the record, say that the disease is one that was "experimented with intensely" in the late 1960's at several "test sites in New England." Morgellons causes patients to suffer horrible skin problems as well as fatigue, confusion and serious memory problems, as well as joint pain and the strange sensation that pins and needles are piercing the body or that something is crawling beneath one's flesh. Some researchers and physicians believe that Morgellons is actually a psychiatric condition called "delusional parasitosis." Other physicians, who are familiar with treating the disease, say it may be caused by "an airborne, unidentified spore" and that it was developed in the laboratory from an affliction that was first identified in the 1700's. Regardless of its origin, some researchers say that Morgellons is becoming "a very real medical problem in some parts of the country."

The "Evil Guys List"? "Free Journalism" in the Service of US Foreign Policy

Vatic Note:   This is a tough one for me.   The credibility of the author of this article is important if we are to give  credence to  this contention about the Reporters without Borders.   Please read since disinformation, propoganda, and provocateuring is running rampid right now and its gone global, not just here.   Verifying contentions such as this is important, but it was  enough of a serious nature to put it up for contemplation and observation in the future.   Not a problem yet til verified but if it is, then solutions will have to be considered.  we certainly have to consider solutions to the lack of MSM almost everywhere these days.  Is this just feeding the angst into the WW III the elite have planned with everybodies leaders on both sides of this conflict???  It seems quite a few are feeding the beast on this issue.   World War III had to begin or these elite will go down as time goes by.   They absolutely need to nuke us to shut us up, get our numbers down, starve us through all the destruction etc etc.   So I am cautious these days about these finger pointings that lead us to that WW situation.   It will prove interesting to see which side on this issue proves to be the perveyor of the war movement. 

The "Evil Guys List"? "Free Journalism" in the Service of US Foreign Policy

The Role of Reporters without Borders

By F. William Engdahl
URL of this article: www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=18995
Global Research, May 5, 2010

An organization calling itself Reporters Without Borders (RWB; French: Reporters sans frontières, or RSF) has just named Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, China’s President Hu Jintao, Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Kazakhstan’s Nursultan Nazarbayev and Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko to their list of Forty Worst Predators of Press Freedom for 2010. Most significant about their list of ‘bad guys’ is the geopolitical relation of those leaders and those countries to the current ‘enemies list’ of the US State Department. That is no accident, as becomes clear when we look more closely at who funds RWB.

Alex Jones on Greece: Battle against oligarchs (On Russia Today)

Vatic Note: This is a follow up from the Greg Palast interview on Alex Jones program. What makes this incredible is Russia Today is seen globally and very much in Europe and that means our alternative press expose's are reaching out across national boundaries which is part of our mission here on this blog. Hopefully this will continue the expansion of awareness, not only nationally, but globally. If the elite want to globalize, they may not like how it happens especially in the information dissemination category. But that is the only globalizing we will assent to in this agenda. The video is powerful. No matter what you may think of Alex, he sure does have a quick mind and immediate response skills that put the mainstream media to shame that always have to think of a politically correct way to speak to an issue, and that is one thing this interview with Alex fully highlights. Just see the difference. He maybe a jerk, but he is our jerk and doesn't feed the pandering side of today's journalism.

Alex Jones on Greece: Battle against oligarchs (On Russia Today)

RussiaToday — March 26, 2010 — Diplomats at an EU summit in Brussels have accepted a bailout plan for Greece. The county's massive budget deficit and financial instability caused the Euro to plummet it a ten month low against the dollar. Radio host Alex Jones believes that the Greek debt crisis has been engineered by predatory financiers looking to make big bucks at the expense of poorer nations.

Vatic Note: Here is another take on the interview, which I questioned when it first came out. Who was this person, who got him to call the show, but why particularly Mr. "Levins" show. Why did he mistakenly say Bomb twice and then retract??? So many questions and now add this and its beginning to smell again. I actually got into trouble with a reader for making too much out of this. So given he may have a point, I present this to you for your own addition to the previous offer I made and see for yourself what you think, keeping in mind we already know 9-11 was an inside, mossad false flag, that trading on stocks affect by 9-11 occurred the day before, as it did on this massive destruction, so its very possible this could have been similar. However, I will let you read it and decide for yourself.

Before reading this, please watch this video and notice it follows the fire frm beginning to end even when the pontoons are finally gone and only the derrick is left.   And listen to the interview with an small oil co owner who has inside info on something that happened two hours before the explosion.  Would this contributed to gross negligence or would it mitigate it?

This video and information on Bureau of Land management visiting the rig two hours before the explosions is very telling and the video itself shows something much different that what we have been shown in cuts from the MSM, SO WATCH .  Here is the link, Bureau of Land management was doing a surprise inspection on oil Rig 2 hours before it exploded


Did BP, Transocean Lawyers Spin The “James” Oil Rig Survivor Interview on The Mark Levin Show?

May 3rd, 2010
Author: Lawco Staff

Steve Gordon, maritime lawyer, representing the family of Karl Kleppinger, Jr, one of the missing 11 oil rig workers aboard the Transocean Deepwater Horizon disaster on April 20, 2010, claims that an oil rig survivor’s story was set up by British Petroleum (BP) and Transocean lawyers for the purpose of spinning the account of the disaster. The interview was broadcast on The Mark Levin Show on Friday, April 30, 2010.

An anonymous caller referred to as “James”, the survivor from the disaster, phoned into the radio talk show and told his account of what happened on the rig that fateful morning. Gordon believes that this interview was set up by the lawyers at Transocean and BP.

Steve Gordon goes on to say on his Deepwater cause and investigation web page:

After 8 days of “silence”, all of a sudden, an unnamed “caller” calling himself James, who says that he was actually on the Deepwater Horizon [DWH], calls into a radio show in Dallas, Texas and wants to “clear the air”. This, I am sure will be proven to be a planned effort on the part of the lawyers at Transocean and BP.

(1) The Jones Act, a law that allows injured victims in a maritime incident to receive economic damages, covers the Kleppinger Family’s claim. A Jones Act violation is easily going to be provable in this disaster and, therefore, the “liability” of Transocean, as to our client, is going to be easily made. But the Kleppinger case, or any other DWH injured workers’ claim, does not stop with finding “liability” as that is just half of the legal equation……The other half is “damages”. If you listen to the caller, he explains what happens as sort of a “surprise” and one attributable to “Mother Nature” and, therefore trying to negate a finding of gross negligence;

(2) However, gross negligence is a possibility in this case against Transocean and/or BP. But, neither Transocean nor BP is “admitting” the Jones Act allows punitive damages in a Jones Act Wrongful Death Claim.

1. This is very important and I do not want to confuse anyone so I will re-state this another way. I believe that Transocean and BP are going to come into our court case and say “We Stipulate to Liability”, in other words they will “confess” liability as to negligence. Then they will argue that “gross negligence” is not available as a matter of law! By arguing this, they will then take the position that they will not have to produce all the (1) statements and (2) documents related to their investigation, or (3) the videos of the rig floor that get sent to shore in “real time”; (4) or all the memoranda related to discussions of the very thing occurring offshore that actually did happen on the Deepwater Horizon; because, once all these things are produced, then gross negligence will be “unveiled” and a jury could then award punitive damages.

2. Another thing is, the questioner asks “did they [the 11] die instantly?” He just ask this out of the blue. Well, once again, this is a very important aspect of the recovery of the Kleppinger family and it is called “Conscious Pain & Recovery of Karl Kleppinger, Jr. just prior to his death”

3. “You can’t win against Mother Nature” the Caller says; then he says, “This was a ….. literally could have been ….a once in a lifetime freak accident or it could be negligence”. Notice no mention of gross negligence. He attempts to portray this event as completely unexpected and not one as a result of poor decisions at the corporate level.

Gordon says to listen to the interview with an “ear” with the analysis that Transocean and BP are trying to explain how it was just “negligent” but not “grossly negligent”.

Top Recipient of Political Cash from BP, Goldman Sachs, Defense Contractors AND Healthcare Giants: Barack Obama

Vatic Note:  Keep in mind that Goldman Sachs shorted on the owner of the rig just before the blowout.  Also remember who owns BP.  That was given on here a few days back.  Goldman sachs is one of the share holders of the major investor in BP and is also independantly an additional institutional shareholder.    http://www.dailyfinance.com/company/bp-p-l-c/bp/nys/institutional-ownership as well as this one.... http://investing.businessweek.com/businessweek/research/stocks/people/relationship.asp?personId=24248740&ticker=STT:US

Solution:  Recommended by someone with a petition  going around "The US take over BP".   That would solve a whole bunch of problems, although BP's owners run the government, so it would require we get rid of the people in gov that we currently have in the next election and replace them with independant candidates and third party candidates.  No more voting for the two wings of the neocon party. 
Top Recipient of Political Cash from BP, Goldman Sachs, Defense Contractors AND Healthcare Giants: Barack Obama.   Lets remember why this needs to be done.  Just look at the platform again.  


Top Recipient of Political Cash from BP, Goldman Sachs, Defense Contractors AND Healthcare Giants: Barack Obama

Washington’s Blog

May 6, 2010

Preface: The story that Obama was the top recipient of political contributions from BP is going viral [1] today. I thought I’d put the story in a little context.

As a side note, I voted for Obama [2] and had high hopes for him … until he appointed Summers, Geithner, various Bush re-treads and industry shills, and then showed that he would play footsie with the big boys instead of the American people.

Politico reports [3]
BP and its employees have given more than $3.5 million to federal candidates over the past 20 years, with the largest chunk of their money going to Obama, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Obama apparently also got more contributions from Exxon and Chevron [4]

And Obama had the most political contributions [5]  from Goldman Sachs in 2008 of all senators. And Goldman gave more to Obama than any other presidential candidate [6] , and was Obama’s second-largest contributor [7].

In addition, Obama was the top congressional recipient of defense industry contributions for the 2008 election cycle. See this [8] , this [9]  and this [10].

Obama was also the top recipient of money from the healthcare giants [11] [12]

No joke: Goldman Sachs shorted Gulf of Mexico

No joke: Goldman Sachs shorted Gulf of Mexico

It turns out that Goldman Sachs really did place shorts on TransOcean stock days before the explosions rocked the rig in the Gulf of Mexico sending stocks plunging while GS profits soared -- benefitting once again from a huge disaster, having done the same with airline stocks prior to 911 then again with the housing bubble.

Solution:  Sometimes coming up with a positive solution for a group like this is difficult and since I am human and imperfect I am going to indulge myself on this one.   Hang them all!!!!

by Sterling D. Allan
Pure Energy Systems News
Contributed to Vatic by Jim Kirwan
On Apr. 30, the Huffington Post published a story stating:

In what is looming as another public relations predicament for Goldman Sachs, the banking giant admitted today that it made "a substantial financial bet against the Gulf of Mexico" one day before the sinking of an oil rig in that body of water.

The new revelations came to light after government investigators turned up new emails from Goldman employee Fabrice "Fabulous Fab" Tourre in which he bragged to a girlfriend that the firm was taking a "big short" position on the Gulf.

"One oil rig goes down and we're going to be rolling in dough," Mr. Tourre wrote in one email. "Suck it, fishies and birdies!"

Not being aware that the author, Andy Borowitz, is a comedian, scores of Internet sites ran with the story as being genuine. As of today, Google search on pulls up 207,000 returns, beginning with the Huffington Post link. Many, such as Infowars, pulled their stories when they realized the mistake.

Christopher Rudy noted:

The news about Goldman's bet against the Gulf comes on the heels of embarrassing revelations that the firm had taken a short position on the housing bubble, profiting from economic collapse, followed by more billions in government bailout support that paid out a couple billion in bonuses to thousands of loyal Goldman "officers" (corporate stakeholders).

We shouldn't be surprised. The owners of Goldman Sachs are the same Rothchilds co-owners of the privately held Federal Reserve Banking System, and they know how to play this game. Watch how Congress capitulates to Wall Street losses that the lap-dog press attributes to "bankster bashing".

Goldman Sachs just settled with the SEC for $450,000 (one guy's salary for a month; or the price of one nicer home lost, among millions due to the collapse) as punishment for shorting the mortgage balloon. (Ref.) They made billions in the crime.

StreetInsider.com reported on April 30 in their "Top 10" recap for that week:

Shares of Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) fell about 7% this week as execs were grilled on Capitol Hill and then, later in the week, the SEC referred its fraud case against the firm to the Justice Department for possible criminal prosecution. While much of Wall Street cheered Lloyd Blankfein's snappy responses to an onslaught of questions, Main Street rejoiced as Carl Levin "stumped" other execs with "meaningful" interrogation tactics aimed at exposing the corruption within the US financial industry.

You can certainly see why people would be quick to believe the comedian's satire piece about Goldman Sach's shorting the Gulf of Mexico.

However, just because his piece was satire, doesn't mean there isn't something to it. The reason humor is funny is because it lampoons reality, providing an exaggerative and simplified caricature to bring out the key issues in a non-threatening way. Historically, especially in times of heavy oppression, the best truth tellers have been the comedians. Benjamin Franklin certainly used humor to his advantage in helping to win America's Independence.

A. True Ott, Ph.D., wrote the following to me last night:

I have confirmed that there were indeed numerous "shorts" placed on TransOcean stock just days before the "problem". Was it Goldman Sachs? That is yet to be conclusively determined (there is indeed a SEC investigation ongoing) -- but labeling something as "satire" is a lawyer's shrewd trick to keep from being sued for slander -- even if it is all true. Moreover, there were massive shorts placed literally seconds after the news hit the airwaves.

Who would dare to quote the actual e-mails from "Fabulous Fab", unless the writer would post them as a "satire" - especially after what happened to the Wall Street Journal writers who dared expose the 9-11 short sales involving Goldman Sachs. (They were assigned to Afghanistan, and had fatal "accidents" there.)

Dr. Ott has subsequently confirmed from two sources that Goldman Sachs was indeed in on the shorts being placed on TransOcean stock. And he has confirmed that the comedian was aware of that as well.

Dr. Ott had me and Paul Noel on his two-hour radio show yesterday talking about the viral article we posted, "Mother of All Gushers Could Kill Earth's Oceans".

In response to the alleged Goldman Sach's shorting story, Paul, who is an expert on the Gulf Oil subject, provided the following intelligence:

There is a reason they could have known the rig was going to fail up to two weeks ahead of its failure. The nature of these wells is that they leave the drill mud in the well and compress using very heavy drill mud to keep the well from blowing up unlimited. The well would begin to bump (similar to boiling a big bubble) and the acoustic signals would tell the rig was in trouble that far ahead. Goldman Sacks could just have had inside info. They also know the scale of things. This is the best explanation. It could be otherwise.

If you were going to sabotage a drilling team, all you would have to do is load a lighter mud in the mix as they pulled a drill pipe. .... There are lots of ways to have this happen either accidentally or deliberately. Goldman teams are great on statistical stuff sort of like the odds of rolling dice. They might just have figured stats for probability of a failure.??? Of course we could surmise other reasons are possible.

In our interview with Dr. Ott yesterday, both Paul and myself pointed to the magnitude of this disaster as hopefully a death knell to the oil industry, spurring people to finally provide the support needed to get the myriad of free/renewable energy technologies that have been languishing into the marketplace. These would not only be much cleaner than oil, without the huge environmental consequences and risks, but in many cases they could be cheaper than fossil-based energy; and many of them provide distributed capability removing the need for a central grid.

This revelation about those with insider knowledge in fact shorting the TransOcean stock prior to the explosions, will hopefully also spell the beginning of the end of the ultra corrupt financial faction who have wrested control over the worlds financial organs. Their days are numbered as they show their true colors in the midst of an increasingly enlightened populace who will not continue to take their abuses. These ultra power and wealth addicts need to be humbled by serving time in prison with common criminals who will not give them privileged treatment. A bullet or lethal injection would be far too merciful and dignified.

Do we have a shred of clean justice left in our corrupt government system which has been bought out, blackmailed, threatened, or otherwise brought under the control of these New World Order manipulators?

It's a dark day in which we live. But I am confident that brighter days are ahead. This time of transition is going to be a wild ride.

Columbia University Trial For Treason Obama Fraud

Vatic Note: As you have probably guessed the Vatic site seldom gets into "right" or "left" issues or parties or personalities, since the creators of this blog felt that we were way beyond right or left politics. We believed that some force on an international level with no loyalty to any nation rather only to their "class", was the culprit in all that has been done to bring the country down and have used both parties to do so. The reason this is up here now, is because the issue is not a right or left issue, but a issue of "truth" and of consequences if true, to this nation of someone who is directing our nation to the shore of rocks intent on destruction. Thus this becomes an issue of trust in our leaders and those responsible for all that is occurring. Remember, even instructions to a jury state clearly, "IF YOU FIND A WITNESS LIED IN A MATTER BEFORE US, THEN YOU MUST ASSUME HE LIED IN ALL MATTERS IN HIS TESTIMONY." That is why this is up here and the solutions we have for addressing this rather serious issue. We are a nation ready to go down either politically, economically and war wise, by Obama and the congress, or/and ready to go down with a massive attack by enemies without or within on our our natural resources and system. We have a lot to look at, consider and decide to do if all is true. At least watch the videos since these were provided by Jim kirwan who has been so very right on everything he has called so far. Thank you for reading, watching and acting. These videos represent someone who had done extensive and credible research on the issue of Obama and his citizensship, and now has enough where the court has upheld the movement toward a law suit against Columbia University for selling a degree to Obama. Very interesting approach by this pastor in Harlem. Please watch these videos as the content is amazing.    Solution:   Write to the President and ask him  to resign to save the nation and himself the stress and embarrassment of future actions that would be far more unpleasant.   This way he could bow out gracefully and leave the issue behind him.  We could then get on with fixing the messes left behind by both him and Bush.  A NEW beginning.  

Columbia University Trial For Treason Obama Fraud

It appears that Obama's degree was purchased, not earned, from Columbia University and
its actually going to trial. At that point, we should know what the truth is and if true, then we
will know that we have to act.  It appears Obama's passport contradicts the time frame of his attendance
to Columbia.  Its a crucial part of the case.  Listen to these videos.  The messanger is not important, but the message is.

Congress Refuses to Outlaw Insider Trading For Lawmakers

Vatic Note:   Gee, sounds like the Health Bill where our congressmen who voted for it, voted against an amendment to include them.  Remember?   In fact, congress has been voting conflict of interest even during both bailouts, one under Bush and two under Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Kerry and others should have refused to vote on the AIG bailout due to a blatant conflict of interest, which was illegal at one time, but not now.  So what is new. 

Solution:   Do a referendum nationally to force Congress to abstain from such activities while in congress and make it criminal for them or any of their friends or relatives to engage in conflict of interest votes if they own shares in such companies.

(Vatics new policy is to not only give the news but attending suggestions for action and solutions to correct the problem, and ask each to both visualize these being in place and taking action to make it happen in your state or local area and work with others to do the same).

Congress Refuses to Outlaw Insider Trading For Lawmakers

Posted May 05, 2010 01:04pm EDT by Peter Gorenstein in Investing, Banking, Politics

Even a cynic can find Washington's hypocrisy shocking at times. The Wall Street Journal reports http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704866204575224631314927058.html  today a House bill that would force lawmakers to make greater disclosures on financial transactions and disallow them from trading on nonpublic information is going nowhere fast.

That's right. Members of Congress are currently allowed to profit on insider trading!

The bill, which has been languishing in the House for four years, would require elected officials "to make their financial transactions public within 90 days of a purchase or sale" and "prohibit lawmakers from trading in financial markets based on nonpublic information they learn on the job," the WSJ reports.

It seems they're above the transparency they've been calling for on Wall Street.

This comes a day after the same newspaper reported several lawmakers profited by betting against the housing and stock market in 2008. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB20001424052748703871904575216491495135642.html  And some did it using derivatives they've recently been railing against.

As our colleague Henry Blodget wrote Tuesday, http://finance.yahoo.com/tech-ticker/congressional-hypocrites-were-betting-against-stocks-as-country-collapsed-477789.html?tickers=gs,xlf,spy,%5Edji,%5Egspc,%5Eixic,qqqq  "If you're going to complain about how awful short-selling is and how evil and venal people are for doing it, you should probably abstain from the practice yourself."

GMO alert: U.S. attempting global censorship of GMO food labeling

Vatic Note:  Remember yesterday we covered articles proving Monsanto frauded studies on the effects of GMO in order to meet the requirements put out by India for their seeds, which resulted in their approval, but as previous Vatic articles showed these seeds resulted in devastation to the cotton crop and also resulted in massive suicides for farmers there.   Many countries around the globe still ban Monsanto GM seeds and we need to do the same.  

Solution:  there are lists of foods and companies that are not GMO and we need to obtain that list and pass it around to all our family, friends and neighbors to begin the process of purchasing only non GMO foods. 
In the meantime to write to the congress and tell them no on GMO foods and we want them labeled and identified.   I know they dont listen to us, but if enough of us do this, it may well causes a change that we cannot forsee.   Lets try it anyway.  Don't forget, election is just around the corner.

GMO alert: U.S. attempting global censorship of GMO food labeling


by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor
NaturalNews.com printable article
Originally published May 4 2010

(NaturalNews) I received an urgent alert from Jeffrey Smith today about a dangerous situation taking place right now at the international CODEX conference. The U.S. is attempting to push its agenda to censor all GMO labeling of foods everywhere around the world. This would result in a global GMO cover-up as consumers are left in the dark about whether their foods and grocery products are genetically modified or not.

Your help is urgently needed to send a message to the Secretaries of State (Clinton), Agriculture (Vilsack), and Health and Human Services (Sebelius) to urge them to halt the USA's nefarious attempts to install a global GMO deception.

Take part in this online petition, go here:

Please understand that the U.S. is attempting to outlaw non-GMO labeling of foods, thereby making it illegal for a non-GMO food product to even claim "non-GMO" on the label. If the U.S. succeeds in this global GMO cover-up, the FDA could seize any products in the USA that make "non-GMO" claims. Additionally, the USA could file lawsuits through the World Trade Organization against any country that allows non-GMO labeling or claims on its products.

Why is the U.S. pursuing such a devious and sinister course of action? Because, as you well know, virtually the entire federal government caters to the financial interests of powerful corporations -- and these include the "Big Ag" giants like Monsanto that want to patent all seeds while destroying the no-GMOs movement. They want to turn non-GMO foods into violations of the law and thereby strip all such products from store shelves.

They want to keep American consumers left in the dark, ignorant of the real dangers posed by GMOs. And of course, they want to dominate the entire U.S. food supply with their toxic GMO crops.

These powerful, dangerous corporations are willing to do anything to achieve their global agenda, including forcing GMO censorship on the entire world.   They might just get away with it, too, unless you join us in speaking up right now to oppose this devious and dangerous action.

Add your voice to the online petition right here:

Slick Operator: The BP I've known too well

Vatic Note:   UPDATE:  BP is fully at fault, it appears they lied to Halliburton as to depth they were going to drill which was deeper than what they told Halliburton.   Now this could be true if you believe neither of them would lie?  uh hum.   Thus Halliburton put on too small a cap for the pressure and that is what contributed to the blow out.  Greg updates us with this info at the end of the article.   Read to the end. 

Solution:  If everyone practiced always tellling the truth, no matter what, then we would eventually set an environment where all corporations, politicians, and bankers would do the same.  Lead by example

Slick Operator: The BP I've known too well

by Greg Palast for Truthout.org
May 5, 2010

I've seen this movie before. In 1989, I was a fraud investigator hired to dig into the cause of the Exxon Valdez disaster. Despite Exxon's name on that boat, I found the party most to blame for the destruction was ... British Petroleum. That's important to know, because the way BP caused devastation in Alaska is exactly the way BP is now sliming the entire Gulf Coast.

Deepwater Horizon in flames before sinking. Photo provided by D.BecnelTankers run aground, wells blow out, pipes burst. It shouldn't happen but it does. And when it does, the name of the game is containment. Both in Alaska, when the Exxon Valdez grounded, and in the Gulf over a week ago, when the Deepwater Horizon platform blew, it was British Petroleum that was charged with carrying out the Oil Spill Response Plans ("OSRP") which the company itself drafted and filed with the government.

What's so insane, when I look over that sickening slick moving toward the Delta, is that containing spilled oil is really quite simple and easy. And from my investigation, BP has figured out a very low cost way to prepare for this task: BP lies. BP prevaricates, BP fabricates and BP obfuscates.

That's because responding to a spill may be easy and simple, but not at all cheap. And BP is cheap. Deadly cheap.

To contain a spill, the main thing you need is a lot of rubber, long skirts of it called "boom." Quickly surround a spill or leak or burst, then pump it out into skimmers or disperse it, sink it or burn it. Simple.

But there's one thing about the rubber skirts: you've got to have lots of it at the ready, with crews on standby in helicopters and on containment barges ready to roll. They have to be in place round the clock, all the time, just like a fire department; even when all is operating A-OK. Because rapid response is the key. In Alaska, that was BP's job, as principal owner of the pipeline consortium Alyeska. It is, as well, BP's job in the Gulf, as principal lessee of the deepwater oil concession.

UPDATE: Iran offers to help contain US oil spill (and we want to bomb them? No way)

Vatic Note:  Its becoming more and more obvious that Iran has absolutely no agressive intentions toward the US.  Its also becoming obvious that Israel wants to confiscate Irans wealth and oil fields which is not a legal justification to attack another nation.   At this point we should withdraw from supporting Israel in this adventure.  Where are Israels offers to help us???  LOL   Yeah, right!   Reminds me of Katrina, our government refusing all aid and assistance from other countries which helped us to see the "war game" nature of the event by refusing to aid the victims for a full three days after the event.   lets see if our nation will accept help and aid from other nations, otherwise this will look like the Sampson Option by those running our government.  Its time to start putting solutions up to these problems we keep pointing out.   Here is the first one below.  Its something WE can do and not rely on our elected officials. 

Solution:  Strategy and tactic,  image Iran helping us and succeeding in making the oil flow stop and then image us having a healthy and great mutually beneficial relationship with Iran.  Another option is for us to send a letter to the Iranian people thanking them for their offer.  I think that would be a great idea. 

Iran offers to help contain US oil spill

The National Iranian Drilling Company (NIDC) has offered to assist the US in efforts to prevent an ecological disaster caused by the spreading oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Following an explosion on a BP-operated oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico last month, at least 210,000 gallons (5,000 barrels) of crude oil are thought to be spilling into the water every day.

NIDC managing director Heidar Bahmani announced the firm's readiness to use its decades-long expertise to fight the oil slick, the company's public relations office told Press TV.

"Our oil industry experts in the field of drilling can contain the rig leakage in the Gulf of Mexico and prevent an ecological disaster in that part of the world," Bahmani said.

Overlooking the new US drive for slapping more UN sanctions on Iran over its civilian nuclear program, the company said that there is an urgent need for action to protect the nearby coasts from the advancing oil spill.

The governors of Alabama, Louisiana and Florida have reportedly called a state of emergency for fear of the oil slick's environmental and economic damages.

The disaster has also prompted the White House to ban oil drillings in new areas of the US coast until the British company explains the cause of the explosion that killed 11 employees and resulted in the oil spill.

UPDATE: Soviet nuclear solution could be part of tactics to halt oil spill off US coast

Vatic Note:   We just completed a big article on DU poisoning that is now blowing all over the planet and the damage its doing in the countries where we have bombed and used DU covered shells.  This poison in literally killing species and people and causing severe massive birth defects, which may well be part of the agenda for depopulation.  Now we are talking about using this irradiation right off our shores of this country that will result in radiation carried along the path of the trade winds.   I guess the choices are a slow death for the planet or a quick one with the slug, oil etc coming out of the rig accident.  Not much of a choice is it???
Solution:  focus on solving the oil gushing problem by conventional means and encourage our government to use the offers of assistance from the various oil well trouble shooters and nations who have experience in this field.  Send a letter of Thanks to the Russian people for offering their advice.

Soviet nuclear solution could be part of tactics to halt oil spill off US coast

Urta-Burlak gas field, Uzbekistan

A giant funnel is being built in the Gulf of Mexico to channel the oil spill from the seabed to surface. But since there is no guarantee it will work, Russian experts think Soviet history may offer a radical solution.

A pillar of fire 120 meters tall. That alone is tough to extinguish, but when the fire is fueled by natural gas, it becomes virtually impossible.

In 1963, one of the Soviet Union's gas-rich locations was badly drilled. The resulting fire burned for three years, with the intensity never waning. All possible ways of fighting the flames were tried – to no avail.

“It was 12 million cubic meters of gas, burning daily. Now multiply that by 3 years. And the price of gas! Nothing worked, the flames were unstoppable. So our boss, the Minister of Nuclear Energy, came to us, and said ‘Boys, let’s help out.’ And we did,” nuclear physicist Albert Vasiliev remembers.

The offered solution? A nuclear explosion. Now, that to a layman might sound like swapping a big problem for an even bigger one. But that is not necessarily the case.

“Think of this as a doctor's case. You have a small problem – you take some pills, maybe stay in hospital for a while. But if the problem is incredibly serious, you will probably have to undergo surgery. This is what we were – surgeons. It was a last resort, but it worked,” Albert Vasiliev says.

It was nowhere as easy as it sounds, however. Although peaceful nuclear explosions had been tested in both the Soviet Union and the United States by this point, to use a nuclear device for such a measure was a first.

“The idea was to drill a small, angled shaft and set off the bomb, so that the explosion would block the leak. But people weren't sure where to drill, because no one knew exactly where the pipe leak was. And it was so loud. You can't imagine what a fire like this sounds like. Worse than a hundred jet planes all at once. Difficult to access, difficult to work close to – it was a tough job,” former science editor of Komsomolskaya Pravda daily, Vladimir Gurbaev told RT.

Despite these problems, all went well. The leak was closed. The method was pronounced effective and later used on several other similar problems.

"The explosion should be carried out above the leaking hole. After the blast the hole seals up. It's similar to stopping the oxygen supply in a human being," explained Vyacheslav Klishin, physicist and nuclear gas-well fire fighter.

Now, some have already suggested that this approach could help stop the catastrophic oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.

"If the explosive element fits the well, then it's possible to use it in this case. Anyway, workers in the Gulf need to tie up the well where oil leaks out and there are two possible ways to do it: a nuclear explosion or another well," Vyacheslav Kishin said.

But the situations are very different – the Soviet gas leak was in the middle of a desert, with not much flora and fauna to suffer from potential after-effects.

The Gulf's wildlife is already critically damaged by the leak. A nuclear explosion, however small, may add to the ecological disaster rather than prevent it.

Dealing with the devastation of the oil spill is one thing, but fingers of blame are also being pointed over the catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico. RT spoke to investigative journalist Webster Tarpley over whether lawmakers have been putting profits before people.

“Under Bush we had something called Minerals Management Agency. This was basically taken apart. The thing that seems to have malfunctioned is concrete casement at the bottom of the ocean – on the ocean floor a mile down – that seems to be defective. The other thing is that there should have been an automatic cut-off valve in this drilling rig, which was not there because of lax standards under Bush and Cheney and of course Obama, Salazar and company have done nothing to change this,” Tarpley said. “It is a disaster that has been caused by lack of regulation, insufficient enforcement and that’s where we get these results.”

UPDATE: Goldman Sachs Reveals it Shorted Gulf of Mexico

Vatic Note:   We do remember the last time shorting occurred in the markets don't we???  Last false flag on 9-11.  Coincidence?  Very low odds of such a coincidence.  Its almost become an indicator.

Goldman Sachs Reveals it Shorted Gulf of Mexico

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report) - In what is looming as another public relations predicament for Goldman Sachs, the banking giant admitted today that it made "a substantial financial bet against the Gulf of Mexico" one day before the sinking of an oil rig in that body of water.

The new revelations came to light after government investigators turned up new emails from Goldman employee Fabrice "Fabulous Fab" Tourre in which he bragged to a girlfriend that the firm was taking a "big short" position on the Gulf.

"One oil rig goes down and we're going to be rolling in dough," Mr. Tourre wrote in one email. "Suck it, fishies and birdies!"

The news about Goldman's bet against the Gulf comes on the heels of embarrassing revelations that the firm had taken a short position on Lindsay Lohan's acting career. More here.
