Was Gulf Oil Spill an Inside Job?

Could the catastrophic Gulf of Mexico oil rig explosion be part of a larger
scheme to "reform" the energy industry, just as the Obama administration has
"reformed" healthcare, banking and automobile manufacturers? Worse, is "cap
and trade"-possibly the worst legislation ever penned-the ultimate endgame
behind this spill, which they are now capitalizing upon?
The first red flag receiving virtually no attention is that Halliburton (of
Dick Cheney fame) had finished a cementing process only 20 hours prior to
Deepwater Horizon erupting in flames. Lawsuits have already been filed, with
Reuters reporting on April 29, "Halliburton improperly and negligently
performed its job in cementing the well, increasing the pressure at the well
and contributing to the fire, explosion and resulting oil spill."
As a result, a high-pressure pocket of deep oil 30,000 feet beneath the
ocean floor erupted with the force of a gigantic, non-stop fire hose. A
surviving worker on the rig, John Kersey, said it sounded "like a war zone"
as alarms were triggered, electricity shorted out, and flames shot 300 feet
into the air. The inferno-like blaze could be seen 35 miles away.
Suspicions arise when an ownership paper trail is followed. Halliburton
subcontracted for a company named Transocean, which leased and operated
Deepwater Horizon for British Petroleum (BP). Transocean is a subsidiary of
Sonat Inc., which merged with the El Paso Corporation (EPC) in March 1999.
Douglas Foshee, EPC's chairman, president and CEO, was hired away from
Halliburton. The interim CEO prior to his arrival was Ronald Kuehn of Sonat.
Another previous CEO of EPC was William Wise, who served with Cheney on the
influential National Petroleum Council. EPC was the largest single
contributor from Texas for Bush-Cheney's 2000 presidential campaign.
Similarly, Wise helped Cheney raise $8 million for the National Republican
These incestuous relationships aren't limited to the GOP. Barack Obama and
his Chicago crime network expect to reap handsome profits in the future.
Step No. 1 in this process began with Chicago's Joyce Foundation, which had
John Ayers (brother of terrorist William Ayers) on its board. Another board
member was then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama.
The Joyce Foundation created the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), which in
turn received financing from Franklin Raines, former head of Fannie Mae, a
prime mover in our recent housing market collapse and economic recession.
Of vital importance is CCX's role as the sole "carbon trading system" under
Obama's cap-and-trade bill. CCX would act as a quasi-stock market to buy and
sell energy emission allowances. Richard Sandor, CCX founder, estimated a
$10 trillion potential for this easily manipulated market.
With that much money at stake, a host of high rollers enter the picture.
Namely, one company with a huge ownership interest in CCX is Generation
Investment Management (GIM), whose chairman is former Vice President Al
Gore. Four other GIM founders include Henry Paulson, David Blood, Mark
Ferguson and Peter Harris-all of Goldman Sachs. Not surprisingly, Goldman
Sachs purchased 10 percent of CCX in 2006.
One other individual on CCX's board of directors is the controversial
Maurice Strong, a New Age occultist with direct ties to the Rockefellers and
Since Goldman Sachs has now become part of the equation, we next need to
examine its non-executive chairman, Peter Sutherland, who formerly filled
the same role at BP, the company at the center of this debacle. As the
third-largest global energy company in existence, BP has four direct links
to Bilderberg: former CEO John Brown, chairman Carl Henric Svanberg, chief
executive Tony Hayward and Sutherland. In addition, Sutherland formerly
served as the World Trade Organization's director general, EU commissioner
and chairman of the European Trilateral Commission.
This background information is important because the top recipient of BP
donations during the 2008 presidential campaign was Obama. Similarly, the
second highest political action committee contributing to a political
candidate in 2008 was Goldman Sachs. The beneficiary of their largess:
Undoubtedly, one of Obama's primary big government missions is to enact
cap-and-trade legislation. To implement this plan, influential decision
makers such as Robert Rubin, Larry Summers, Paul Volcker and Timothy
Geithner are all members of the financial mafia. In this vein, David Mayer
Rothschild stressed that last year's Copenhagen environmental summit was "an
attempt to establish a world government."
Likewise, AFP editor Jim Tucker reported on March 24, 2007 that General Lord
Guthrie, director of N.M. Rothschild & Sons, said political leaders should
"address the global climate crisis with a single voice, and impose rules
that apply worldwide."
The Rothschilds have spent huge amounts of money promoting the global
warming hoax. Goldman Sachs is obviously an arm of their empire, whereas BP
is among a host of companies in Nathan Rothschild's portfolio.
A TEAM EFFORT
Considering the nature of these prominent players, one factor binds them all
together. Cap and trade, via the CCX, will tax carbon-dioxide emissions and
generate trillions in revenue. Only a month ago, however, this legislation
sat dead in the water with virtually no support from Congress or the
American public. But now, with an environmental catastrophe at hand, could
it be resurrected and enacted in a way that mirrored President Clinton's
counter-terrorism bill following the OKC bombing?
Ironically, big oil and global bankers are two of the most ardent supporters
of climate change legislation. In this sense, seeming adversaries such as
"environmentalist" Gore and BP are on the same team; as are Cheney's
Halliburton, Goldman Sachs and Obama's CCX. It should also be noted that
prior to their demise, the corrupt Enron Corporation lavished huge amounts
of praise on cap and trade legislation.
Lastly, if gasoline prices surge this summer due to the Gulf of Mexico
spill, one obvious benefactor will be the new green-friendly "smart cars"
owned by GM (Government Motors).
As AFP goes to press, all containment efforts have failed as millions of
gallons of oil continue to gush into the Gulf of Mexico on a weekly
