BP US collusion to cover-up the proof of the ongoing danger in the gulf

BettyJean Kling

We are living in America and we have for most of our lives been under the impression that the rest of the world lives in and under Regimes that dictate what they are allowed to know. They are lied to by their governments. They are fooled daily, their elections are rigged and everyone wants to come to America to be and breathe free.

But we American’s – we have freedom and freedom of the press and we can go anywhere and know anything and … well … quite frankly we are the envy of the world. We are a government of for and by the people.

Please read an article by Jerry Cope, even Huffington Post can’t find it in them to hide the truth about what we have become. America… Land of the free, home of the brave … From the mountains to the prairies to the oceans white with foam

The unprecedented disaster caused by the BP oil spill at the Deepwater Horizon Mississippi Canyon 252 site continues to expand even as National Incident Commander Thad Allen and BP assert that the situation is improving, the blown-out source capped and holding steady, the situation well in hand and cleanup operations are being scaled back. The New York Times declared on the front page this past week that the oil was disolving more rapidly than anticipated. Time magazine reported that environmental anti-advocate Rush Limbaugh had a point when he said the spill was a “leak”. Thad Allen pointed out in a press conference that boats are still skimming on the surface, a futile gesture when the dispersant Corexit is being used to break down oil on the surface. As the oil is broken down, it mixes with the dispersant and flows under or over any booming operations.

To judge from most media coverage, the beaches are open, the fishing restrictions being lifted and the Gulf resorts open for business in a healthy, safe environment. We, along with Pierre LeBlanc, spent the last few weeks along the Gulf coast from Louisiana to Florida, and the reality is distinctly different. The coastal communities of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida have been inundated by the oil and toxic dispersant Corexit 9500, and the entire region is contaminated. The once pristine white beaches that have been subject to intense cleaning operations now contain the oil/dispersant contamination to an unknown depth. The economic impacts potentially exceed even the devastation of a major hurricane like Katrina, the adverse impacts on health and welfare of human populations are increasing every minute of every day and the long-term effects are potentially life threatening.


“The majority of the disposal operations were carried out under cover of darkness. The areas along the beaches and coastal Islands where the dead animals were collected were closed off by the U.S. Coast Guard. On shore, private contractors and local law enforcement officials kept off limits the areas where the remains of the dead animals were dumped, mainly at the Magnolia Springs landfill by Waste Management where armed guards controlled access. The nearby weigh station where the Waste Management trucks passed through with their cargoes was also restricted by at least one sheriff’s deputies in a patrol car, 24/7.”

Shell Beach, in Hopedale, Louisiana, was one of the sites where carcasses of sperm whales were suspected of being destroyed. The operational end of the island was closed to unauthorized personnel and the airspace closed. The U.S. Coast Guard closed off all access from the Gulf.

  1. Thank you for the great, but disturbing article. I truly believe that we don’t really have freedom of the press after all. So much is hidden from us and so many false facts are fed to us through the media.

    I will be leaving tomorrow morning on a short trip. After stopping in Virginia to visit my brother and his family, Hubby and I will continue on to Washington where we will meet up with his sister and brother-in-law. There we will all attend the 8/28 rally.

    I think you once mentioned that you were going. If so, have fun and please stay safe.

    That goes to everyone who is going to DC.

    Be back next week.

  2. Thanks for posting this. IMHO it should be sent to
    Everyone we know..I did just that.
    How terribly sad and disgraceful. We need to be
    Yelling about this and demanding answers.
    How heartbreaking.
