Blood for oil… 20 May 2010

Posted by marisacat in 2010 Mid Terms, 2012 Re Election, Culture of Death, DC Politics, Inconvenient Voice of the Voter, The Battle for New Orleans, WAR!.

Gas from the damaged wellhead is burned by the drillship Discoverer Enterprise, 16 May 2010, in a process known as flaring. Gas and oil from the wellhead are being brought to the surface via a tube that was placed inside the damaged pipe Photograph: Patrick Kelley/USCG

Evocative of Turner, I thought. The painting of the sea monster, or the slave ship on the high seas, shoving humans overboard.

lambert at corrente has a good post on the oil volcano…

He snips from a McClatchy piece naming the names, so to speak, it’s 95,000 barrels of oil a day, 4 million gallons… per day. Even Sky Truth pegging it at a flow of 18 million gallons, as of the 1st of May or 10 days after it all blew, was low. Exxon Valdez was 11 million gallons..

Well. I guess that would explain why the Coast Guard, which apparently works for BP now, is preventing filming in the Gulf.

The figure of 5,000 barrels a day or 210,000 gallons that BP and the federal government have been using for weeks is based on satellite observations of the surface. But NASA’s best satellite-based instruments can’t see deep into the waters of the Gulf, where much of the oil from the gusher 5,000 feet below the surface seems to be floating.

Yeah, that’s what Obama said, but he was lying. In fact, we have the technology for this at Woods Hole; we’ve been using it to measure hot water vents on the ocean floor.

Al Shuman at SMBIVA does have the best remedy…

[T]wo birds. One stone. Use the BP board of directions and the management to cap the gusher. Stuff them all into the pipe. There’s no need to for perfect precision—although that would help. Just keep stuffing them down into it and hope for the best.

Add in at least Salazar.  And I would toss in Chu, late of Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, as well.  Why stop there?  Lisa Jackson, long a sister of corporate industry (well honestly, what are you gonna do in Jersey!)…. and so on. Oil Patch boys, any of them.

A nice dream, anyway.

The oil, red and invading, has reached the Delta of the Mississippi, the barrier islands, is in the water columns and has entered the loop current, carrying it toward Florida and the Keys… 

I’d say it has unleashed itself.

lambert describes the lameness on view (the government is still gathering their team of brilliants to head to the Gulf, a month later) as “sucktitude”.

More and more I think the plan is to destroy much of the Gulf, or a good chunk of it, and its livelihoods.  Frankly, why would the oiligarchic congealing fuckball of government, hirelings and fixers, bagmen and women and corporate oil care one whit about the people, much less the wildlife and industries, of the Gulf?

I think it is a ‘clearing the land’ project, once it blew. Clear and Hold, like our wars.

And a testing ground for the worst of the toxic clean ups

It makes sense, when you look at how we operate. And how we operated in much of the Gulf, esp NO with its high black and poor population, in the wake of Katrina. We treated American land and a major city, as war zones.

Before we did anything else, we trained weapons on that area, from the ground and the air…

Rebel land to be conquered, raped, sodomised and then used up.  Still going on, as I see it.

Interesting to watch how we have curled around and attacked ourselves, like a scorpion.

And all my kitties know is that I baked a great chicken tonight… they freak out when I do that – it’s in the oven for an hour, and they meow at the oven and chase me around while it’s baking, because they know they’ll get organ meat and skin – and some choice pieces of meat too… the baked chicken holiday…

marisacat - 20 May 2010

Baby was never so happy as when I stripped the hot meat off the wings of the excellent roast chicken my market makes… After that she got meat from a leg…….. next a thigh…

Then she would slip into a reverie and clean clean clean, to push that lovely parfum de volaille around…

I take it the kitties are happy tonight… 😉

hey, it’s some kind of change, right?

Snicker.

[I]f the results of Tuesday’s night’s grab bag of Senate and House elections prove anything, it’s that Obama didn’t copyright the anti-Washington change message. At a time of nearly 10 percent unemployment, anxiety about the economy, two wars and fury about bailouts and Beltway pay to play, the message of change is bigger than any one cause, one party or even Obama himself.

“When I talk to people, I still don’t get the sense that they’re getting down on Obama too much yet … but he is clearly behind the curve right now,” says Jim Dean, chairman of Democracy for America, which endorsed Halter against Obama-backed Democratic incumbent Sen. Blanche Lincoln.

“The goodwill on this thing is pretty close to running out,” said Dean, brother of former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. “This is really it right here, what happened Tuesday night is a catalyst for change. … You can’t run things structurally like the old machine.”

Even the party’s big winner Tuesday — Mark Critz, who won Rep. John Murtha’s old seat in Pennsylvania — ran against Obama’s health care overhaul.

Obama has become so synonymous with the Washington establishment these days that a top Democratic consultant joked, “What the White House needs to do is endorse the candidate they don’t want to have win, then the candidate they want to win can run as anti-establishment.” snip

Oh I wouldn’t be too quick to claim that it can’t run like the old machine. Specter, out of gas, got moved over for a pro war, pro Israel, pro military ret Admiral… who likely is also CIA.

I think the old machine is working … it gave itself a bit of a haircut and shave, that is all.

More on Rand Paul (other comments in the previous thread, “Voting”)

Ben Smith has at least two posts on it… Here is the latest (in an earlier one he links to NPR interview and an earlier pre election interview in the Courier)

http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/

The attack on Rand Paul’s principled libertarianism — which appears to hold that private businesses should be allowed to discriminate on race — writes itself, and it’s hard to see how he makes it to the Senate if he can’t give a better explanation than he gave Rachel Maddow last night:

What I think would happen — what I’m saying is, is that I don’t believe in any discrimination. I don’t believe in any private property should discriminate, either. And I wouldn’t attend, wouldn’t support, wouldn’t go to. But what you have to answer when you answer this point of view, which is an abstract, obscure conversation from 1964 that you want to bring up. But if you want to answer, you have to say then that you decide the rules for all restaurants and then you decide that you want to allow them to carry weapons into restaurants.

Writes Mike Allen: “Say what?”

“He needs to come up with an answer today, or Kentucky will be Arizona: a battleground for ugly, racial politics. He has 24 hours,” Joe Scarborough said this morning.

Posted by Ben Smith 08:26 AM

BTW, BHHM, he doesn’t link to Maddow either, so I assume as of this am, te interview transcript is not up… and I have not checked Maddow site, for the vid.

Dontcha love Joe S laying down the law… [snicker]

BooHooHooMan - 20 May 2010

I was shirt chewing (plenty to go!) but replied to lucid on the RP / 65CRA backthread..
My short and not so skinny ( high cal shirts/ big mouth) is Pauls evasion and halfsies is like “safe legal and rare” / DADT etc…
SSDD basically, no more whacked than we are now…
Not that that’s a good thing but…

But Scarborough and Mike Allen with the fauxrage isn’t surprising…
Here’s what I think all the rounders are concerned about…again not so much the Pauls anymore than than they were concerned with Edwards backing up his populist talk…but the rhetoric..
If populism was anathema…imagine the slapdown on – gasp- isolationism..

Also in Politico this morn.

Arena
The end of Cheneyism?

Is Rand Paul’s win a sign of growing isolationism?
Is national greatness conservatism withering?

But I laugh at Blow Scarborough.

“He needs to come up with an answer today, or Kentucky will be Arizona: a battleground for ugly, racial politics. He has 24 hours,” Joe Scarborough said this morning.

What rock has he been living under?
Yeh, We’re so post racial in politics.

I left a comment too in “Voting”….

Yeah this should be pretty entertaining for a few months.

Pew polling has identified a broad cross section of Americans, it crosses color, age, economic strat etc.. that want a pull back from the wars, from the level of foreign interference… etc.

Bt it does not matter, the gov is going to bleed the country dry for its wars… and escapades.

I see Gates is declaring seekign a cut of 10 billion for Pentagon, Defense … Oh goody.

The fuckign Feds cut 13 billion by denying COLA to seniors and disabled… so I am so impressed with Gates, Friend to BuOb.

lucid - 20 May 2010

RE your reply on the last thread. While he didn’t directly say my ‘if…then…’ equation, he did directly equate the two, which in my opinion, is absurd. For one, the language of the 14th amendment is unequivocal about equal protection. Furthermore, if he really believes that the gub’mint has no business regulating business, then he should be complaining about local laws that force businesses to allow customers to carry – which he would never do.

Madman in the Marketplace - 20 May 2010

it was kind of fun watching him hang himself on Maddow. MSNBC is replaying it every hour today.

Paul on Maddow

Madman in the Marketplace - 20 May 2010

oh, meant to add that the sad truth is that while to me he looked like he was hanging himself, there are plenty of people in this country that think private businesses SHOULD be able to pick and choose who they allow into their establishments.

Anyway, the video link was above, here’s the transcript

Via Mike Allen Playbook…

this really is vey amusing…

Kos:

‘The New York Times apparently now flacks for the NRSC … I trusted the NY Times to get the story right, and believed the paper when it claimed Blumenthal had a history of misrepresenting his service history. As a veteran, it pissed me off. Now I’m pissed at the NY Times for not properly doing its job, and denying its readers the available information necessary for its readers to properly assess the situation. I trusted the newspaper. You’d think I would’ve learned my lesson after Judith Miller.’

Dear boy is pissed off… he trusted the NYT… WHAMBULANCE.

Wht psses for the “left”, online, Kos and Media Matters (geesh) are siding with Blumenthal and against the NYT.

I think he knew this was coming, as he was VERY careful last month, at the debate. Very careful wording that he served in the era, but not in Vietnam.

Prolly been swirling a while. Hell reporters in his home state, as of the 70s, had tracked Eagleton for TWENTY YEARS and knew he hid a psychiatric record and shock therapy.

And then the moment came.

BooHooHooMan - 20 May 2010

And now we have Pretzels who overcame the mental illness of marijuana inhalation! Not to mention the snow. Race for the Cure! We got that goin for us. Good thing Bill was never involved in anything so pernicious tho.
Oh except for maybe the Balkans, East Timor, letting Israel run amok and demolishing whatever was left of the social contract.

😆

So Let’s Add “but did not inhale” to the halfsies list.

marisacat - 20 May 2010

yeesh.. Bill… who worked in tandem iwth Rahm thru several congressional election cycles to bring us Shuler, Ellsworth and so many others. Shits, Catholics, assholes, pro mil, pro war, anti women, etc.

Such dolls.

And I read that Bill is a advisor, unofficial, to Sestak. And was with him, advising him at his DC house, the very day Specter declared he would be a Democrat.

Obby better watch his back.

snickerlicious.

Madman in the Marketplace - 20 May 2010

I think HIS campaign floated it now, when it’s really too late to challenge Blumenthal for the donk nom, but far ahead of the general election so people will be bored when the Republicans try to use it.

8. catnip - 20 May 2010

Today’s cuteness.

I caught that on Anderson Cooper’s 360 last nite after he interviewed BP’s Bob Dudley – who evaded questions like a masterful politician. He was asked repeatedly about the amount of spillage and danced his way around every single answer. What I thought was interesting was his assertion that this new tube was catching 3,000 barrels per day yet news reports form BP have claimed it’s catching 20%. So, obviously, 3,000 isn’t 20% of the 5,000 barrels per day that they claim is gushing.

An interview worth watching. Cooper did a good job.

One thing I noted when watching recent committee testimony was that Llloyd’s of London (and another insurer) according to some congressperson had spoken up about congress upping the liability cap. That raised 2 things for me:

1. I hadn’t even considered that some insurance company would be paying for the spill cleanup. The idea that “BP will pay” is actually a smokescreen then.

2. If you raise the cap, only mega-corporations that can afford the insurance coverage will be eligible to bid on contracts. Considering the risk involved, I guess that makes sense i.e. that a company ought to be big enough to handle the consequences. But, again, it feeds into making huge corporations even bigger while the little people flail. And the bigger they are, the more lobbying power they have.

Around and around it goes…

marisacat - 20 May 2010

What I thought was interesting was his assertion that this new tube was catching 3,000 barrels per day yet news reports form BP have claimed it’s catching 20%. So, obviously, 3,000 isn’t 20% of the 5,000 barrels per day that they claim is gushing.

yeah Salazar used the 3k number again this am, on ABC, which was a bit longer than his appearance on CBS…

AND there is new tape of McKay saying the impact will be “minimal” on the evnironment… AND Salazar hedged when shown thatclip, as well. Even poor Wee Stephie almost laughed at him.

catnip - 20 May 2010

Salazar: not too big to flail.

marisacat - 20 May 2010

he was looking pretty miserable. Forget the name of the host on the CBS morning show, but he asked if the Gubmint was in charge – at all. Or is it BP running everything…

snicker..

brinn - 20 May 2010

k, am just now watching this….I need to have confirmation that I have heard what I just heard…circa 8:26, does Dudley actually say that they have been responding to a leak at about 100,000 barrels a day — did he say that?!

Because, if so, he just made a serious BP PR mistake!!

Could be that I only heard what I wanted ….. ? Would someone let me know?

catnip - 20 May 2010

Did he? I’ll have to watch it again. I know he was pissed off about others’ estimates and basically said they were useless…

9. catnip - 20 May 2010

As for Rand Paul, I didn’t conclude from that Maddow interview that he’s racist. He’s just an uber-libertarian who doesn’t want gov’t involved in regulating businesses. ie. not only did he make the “lunch counter” argument, he also said that he didn’t think it was reasonable for gov’t to regulate making businesses fully accessible to people with disabilities (make the first floor accessible instead of being forced to add a “$100,000 elevator” so disabled people could access the second floor).

I obviously don’t agree with his world view and he used pretzel logic by trying to invoke the first and second amendments as counter (no pun intended) arguments but I get the point he was sloppily trying to make and it wasn’t – by definition – racist. He seems to be of the narrow-minded “survival of the fittest” school of thought. From a libertarian, that’s not surprising.

That’s what I took away from it anyway…

Madman in the Marketplace - 20 May 2010

I think there is a deep-seated fear of “others” that demands that the civic square ends at the boundary where a lease or deed takes hold, and I think buried in that fear is a sort of xenophobia that is more pernicious than racism, is the seed of racism. I think like all libertarians, Paul does have a bit of that. We all do, but he wants HIS protected from the law.

catnip - 20 May 2010

I think buried in that fear is a sort of xenophobia that is more pernicious than racism

I think libertarians are inherently selfish bastards who basically only care about their own rights. I’d agree that there’s some xenophobia involved in that kind of thinking.

lucid - 20 May 2010

The problem, as I pointed out in my comment on the other thread, is that he does want government messing with business – he just doesn’t want it involved at the federal level, enforcing that pesky 14th amendment. So, you have to ask yourself why. Is their any other explanation?

catnip - 20 May 2010

So, you have to ask yourself why.

Well, I thought I explained my view of the typical libertarian’s answer to that question. And of course, as you know, libertarians live in a make-believe world full of contradictions that can’t and doesn’t fully exist. We see shades of it: loose regulations etc. but this “personal freedom” – which is one of vast inequality – that they support is incredibly damaging. I think they like the idea of it but in practical terms it’s just unworkable on any grand scale.

10. marisacat - 20 May 2010

Rand Paul is def out there, giving interviews……… fun to watch if nothing else.

Apparently he went on Ingraham

😆 the “looney left” is after him.

there is language in your ticket that they reserve the right to ask any passenger for “official” ID (which I guess is a passport or driver’s license). Penn Station has bomb & drug sniffing dogs being led around all over, and almost constant announcements to report “suspicious” activity.

I was in Dallas for a conference in the early 90s. Waitresses calling me “darlin'” and “ma’am” and serving these humongous iced teas and my first taste of grits – it was great!

I also checked out Dallas Alley downtown and the grassy knoll. All in all it was a good time. But it was the same year as the Rodney King riots in LA where our conferences were usually held. Luckily, they had changed the location (planned months before) so I missed that whole scenario but I remember talking to an American conference participant the night of the riots and him saying that he was “ashamed to be an American”. We had a self-imposed curfew in case the violence spread to Dallas. It was pretty tense.

Cops: Woman forced to perform sex act shoots suspect with own gun

During the sex act, the man put the gun in his pocket “as he put his arms back in an apparent relaxed gesture,” the arrest affidavit states.

She seized the opportunity and grabbed the gun, then pointed it at him. When he charged toward her, she fired. The man fled the area.

The victim said she wasn’t sure whether the man was hit, but said he “leaned over his leg as if she hit him,” reports TCPalm.com

Friends of Barnes’ apparently took him to the emergency room with a gunshot wound to the right leg.

That’s where the police found him.

A child is not a notch on the bedpost

T
hem folk are not like us folk. I really had to twist my brain to read this article from Touchstone on “contradeception”, because I’m finding it hard to imagine how screwed up in the head you have to be to think that way.

It’s an article against contraception. When these quiverful zealots argue that they love kids, I can sympathize; when they say they are trying to outbreed non-Christians, I can sort of understand the logic, even though I think they’re wrong; but this story…children are like an afterthought. The reason you shouldn’t use contraception is because getting pregnant is public evidence that you are fulfilling your marital duties.

It’s a kind of busybody’s idea of heaven and earth…or perhaps a very monkey-like one. Everyone is supposed to monitor everyone else’s sexual behavior, and the purpose of marriage is to make it easy for everyone to track who is screwing who.

The excerpts he blockquotes are seriously disturbing.

Just heard they are “replacing” Dennis Blair, the head of all US Intel.

This should be at least interesting..

marisacat - 20 May 2010

Tapper has it:

ABC News has learned that President Obama will replace the Director of National Intelligence, Admiral Dennis Blair (ret.) His resignation will come as soon as tomorrow, sources tell ABC News.

For several weeks President Obama has been holding serious conversations about whether to ask Blair to step down and has interviewed candidates to replace him. After a discussion this afternoon between the president and Blair in the Oval Office about the best way forward, Blair offered to resign and the president said he would accept, sources told ABC News.

Multiple administration sources tell ABC News that Blair’s tenure internally has been a rocky one.

On the heels of a number of intelligence failures involving the Fort Hood shooter, failed Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouq Abdulmuttalab, and questions about failed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad, it was no longer clear that Blair — tasked with coordinating the 16 intelligence agencies and ensuring that they cooperate and share information – still had the full and complete confidence of the president, sources say.

The news will not come as a surprise to those in the intelligence community. For months, Blair has turf battles while the White House made it clear that it had more confidence in others, such as counterterrorism and homeland security adviser John Brennan, taking the lead both publicly and privately.
