I want to address the possibility of sabotage

I want to address the possibility of sabotage.

It is clear to me BP and the other oil companies want cap and trade to become the law of the land. Why? Ask yourself that.

BP America President and Chairman Lamar McKay: “BP supports an economy-wide price for carbon based on fair and equitable application across all sectors and believes that market based solutions, like a cap and trade or linked-fee, are the best solutions to manage GHG emissions.” (Committee on Energy and Commerce, Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, U.S. House Of Representatives, Hearing, 6/15/10)

Shell President Marvin E. Odum: “That is why Shell supports legislating a solution to energy and climate issues as a means to create a secure U.S. energy future, reduce dependence on foreign oil and decrease greenhouse gas emissions. This requires setting a price for carbon, and we recommend cap and trade.” (Committee on Energy and Commerce, Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, U.S. House Of Representatives, Hearing, 6/15/10)

ConocoPhillips CEO James J. Mulva: “Another key element of a comprehensive energy policy should be federal action to address global climate change. As you are aware, ConocoPhillips supports passage of a comprehensive federal law establishing a clear and transparent price for carbon.” (Committee on Energy and Commerce, Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, U.S. House Of Representatives, Hearing, 6/15/10)

They thought the BOP shut off the oil and gas on the sea floor. It did not.

(1) Could the BOP malfunctioned?
(2) Could the operator have make a mistake and not closed the BOP correctly or fast enough?
(3) Could a waco environmentalist have had his hands on the controls and faked the closing off of the blowout preventor???
(4) Could BP have done this on purpose to make billions through the CCX that obama and gore created?

Sabotage is a possibility and almost no one is talking about it, especially the 11 men that were killed.

Why was BP so lax in their safety standards?

Where were the government inspections or inspectors?

How could these safety standards be ignored?

Are the safety standards voluntary only?

This who thing smells like BO. It stinks like a big scam.

Oil rig survivor says that the well was shut in and they were going through the process of separating the rig from the well, and moving it off

Revisiting Oil Well Pressures and Blowout Preventers after BP's Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

BP and BO are using the scam or the "oil crisis" and "carbon credits" on the CCX to bilk America. obama is also bilking Americans out of their Constitutional freedoms.
.......................................................................................
A blowout

Oil rig survivor says that the well was shut in and they were going through the process of separating the rig from the well, and moving it off.

They began by cleaning out the drilling mud from the riser, replacing it with sea water. However, when they re-opened the valves at the top of the well, the pipe in the well had become filled with gas from the well, under considerable pressure, and this “Kicked” the well as the valve opened.

Gas, as the pressure gets less as it moves up the pipe, expands much more than oil. And unfortunately in the process of disconnection, the pressure to hold the gas, which comes from the density of the drilling mud in the riser initially, had been removed as part of the disconnection process.

So the high pressure gas was able to blow all the sea water in the riser out onto the deck of the rig. (This happens extremely quickly, well below a minute) The gas then followed, and as it flowed out of the pipe at the top of the well there was some hot source that caused it to ignite.

(This could even be from a static electricity spark). Because of the depth of the well, the pressure in the bottom of the well was in the 30-40,000 psi range.

Part of the problem that arises with flows at that pressure is that any abrasive particles (such as small pieces of rock) will cut through metal at the speeds at which it is carried.

(Such jets were used to remove the damaged tops of the wells in Kuwait after the Gulf War, for example).

So that it is possible that as the Blow Out Preventor started to function the high-velocity flow may have eroded part of the system to allow some fluid to bypass the plug that the BOP inserted.

If that happened then the continued flow would just enlarge the passage again fairly quickly, so that the BOP will become ineffective.

However there are pictures of the leaks available.

There is a recent report that the accident may have been caused by a poor cementing job by Haliburton:

After an exploration well is drilled, cement slurry is pumped through a steel pipe or casing and out through a check valve at the bottom of the casing. It then travels up the outside of the pipe, sheathing the part of the pipe surrounded by the oil and gas zone. When the cement hardens, it is supposed to prevent oil or gas from leaking into adjacent zones along the pipe.

As the cement sets, the check valve at the end of the casing prevents any material from flowing back up the pipe. The zone is thus isolated until the company is ready to start production.

The process is tricky. A 2007 study by the U.S. Minerals Management Service found that cementing was the single most-important factor in 18 of 39 well blowouts in the Gulf of Mexico over a 14-year period. But at the time of the accident, "well operations had not yet reached the point requiring the placement of the final cement plug, which would enable the planned temporary abandonment of the well," the Halliburton statement said.

However it is hard to see from what is known, that this was a cause in this case.

If a well is shut in it closes of the blow-out preventor. There is a report from a survivor (h/t Fractional Flow ) that says that the well was shut in and they were going through the process of separating the rig from the well, and moving it off.
........................................................................................
Story Reports analyzes the BO and BP manure. Don't believe BP or BO they are liars.

It could be they thought the well was "shut in" or closed off by the blow out preventor closing its valves to cut off the oil and gas pressure. The survivor says this was done. It could be he thought this was done. Maybe they thought the bop was closed off.

If they thought it was closed off preventing the oil and gas from comming to the surface they would start going through the process of seperating the rig from the well. This process involves cleaning out the drilling mud from the riser, replacing it with sea water.

However, when they re-opened the valves at the top of the well, the pipe in the well had become filled with gas from the well, under considerable pressure, and this “Kicked” the well as the valve opened.

If the BOP only partially closed when they re-opened the valves at the top of the well, the pipe in the well had become filled with gas from the well, under considerable pressure.
Only 30 to 40,000 PSI!

"Gas, as the pressure gets less as it moves up the pipe, expands much more than oil. And unfortunately in the process of disconnection, the pressure to hold the gas, which comes from the density of the drilling mud in the riser initially, had been removed as part of the disconnection process."

So now I think I understand what the heck could have happened.

They thought the BOP shut off the oil and gas on the sea floor. It did not.

(1) Could the BOP malfunctioned?
(2) Could the operator have make a mistake and not closed the BOP correctly or fast enough?
(3) Could a waco environmentalist have had his hands on the controls and faked the closing off of the blowout preventor???
(4) Could BP have done this on purpose to make billions through the CCX that obama and gore created?

YES!!!

Which one do I think it is? I can only take a guess because the 11 men who died are not talking.

If BP goes bankrupt then morphs into a carbon based trading company I would say, (3)or (4) a waco environmentalist faked the closing of the BOP to create a manufactured crisis and BP did it on purpose to make millions on the CCX.

If after testimony under oath and corroborating evidence is creditable I could possibly believe it was an accident waiting to happen just like BO before he was "elected".

The tooler or foreman that died on the rig told his father that BP was cutting corners and taking safety risks and he was having to fight them all the time.

If this is true it must be also happening on other rigs. BP has made their employees sign a gag order not to talk.

This is why I suspect a coverup by BP. Remember BP was in bed with obama before this oil crisis. BP was obama's biggest contributor to his campaign. Rohn E and BP were also in bed together.

(Of course cap and trade is just an excuse to tax Americans on a problem that does not exist. Why do all the oil companies support cap and trade? Why would oil companies want a price for carbon set?

I'll tell you. They are invested in the obama/raines/gore carbon credit scheme.

Caron credits are the greatest scam in human history

Gary E explains:

If you have ever sat back, scratching your head and wondering why the Marxists are pushing for a “cap and trade” bill that would not only make energy costs “necessarily skyrocket,” to quote Barack Obama, but do absolutely nothing to effect fictional “climate change, ” one way or the other, you are about to find out.

We have long known this Marxist idea was nothing more than a continuation of the communist desire to “spread the wealth” by forcibly stealing from those who create and earn, and giving to those that don’t. This is an inbred mental defect that can’t be cured, only contained, the most effective way being: not to elect these evil, corrupt bastards in the first place!

When we first learned of the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) we smelled a rat. No one has been more radical than Barack Obama when it comes to pushing the “global warming” hoax, and the “cap and trade” scheme. Being based in Chicago, common sense told us that Obama was somehow involved, and it was as corrupt as the day is long.

It took Glenn Beck to put it all together, and he has done a remarkable job of spelling it all out. In the videos below, Glenn documents Obama’s ties to the multi-trillion dollar carbon trading scam, Goldman Sachs, the Joyce Foundation, domestic terrorist Bill Ayers’ brother, Al Gore, George Soros, Maurice Strong and a whole cast of nerdowells.

Beck does a great job of connecting the dots here, as well as spelling out the scam itself. It’s quite interesting to note that all of the Marxist-democrats were pounding Goldman Sachs in their “show trial” for their handling of derivatives, a “synthetic” financial product, created out of thin air. Never mind it was the Marxist-democrat Party controlled Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac who were involved in the creation of this product, and President Bill Clinton who sanctioned it. (IE carbon credits)

Caron credits are the greatest scam in human history

Even Obama’s boss, George Soros, got in on the act writing an essay on his website speaking to the dangers of derivatives.

And yet, this is what carbon trading is, in a way. You are not buying a real product, or producing a benefit. Trading carbon credits can best be described as a “sin tax” with the “sinner” being able to purchase the ability to continuing “sinning,” without stopping the “sinful behavior” in any way whatsoever. You are simply redistributing wealth. In this case, those who actually produce will be forced to purchase the right to continue to produce from those who don’t produce. A real triumph for the glorious communist revolution!

But stealing money from the producers, and giving it to the non-producers is only half the story. These carbon credits will have to be tracked and traded. These credits will be treated as any other commodity, and traded on the open market. This is where the Chicago Climate Exchange comes in. They will be the only exchange for trading these credits and will make hefty commissions buying and selling these credits. (They get paid coming and going)

Energy prices will “necessarily skyrocket” because of two factors. One, because producers will have to purchase these credits, adding to the cost of doing business, a cost that will be passed on to the consumer, and two, these producers will be forced to buy the privilege of continuing to produce, from the Chicago Climate Exchange, which will raise the cost of doing business even more, again this will be passed on to the consumer.

(Did ya get that? Bp and the other oil companies will purchase these credits and make millions off of the fake carbon credits. So will BO and al gore etc. All of the cost will be passed on to Americans.) Story Reports

This is where Obama, and the rest of what Beck is calling Crime, Incorporated come in. Conservative estimates are Obama, Gore and the other scam artists involved in this deal will gross ten trillion dollars yearly, selling nothing but thin air. This is a fact.

(Obama will be good at this because he produces nothing now and never has except the total destruction of America.) Story Reports

Carbon credits are the greatest scam in human history

(Now does the gulf "oil crisis" make sense??. Its all about BP, BO and other scum making millions through a scam. A scam obama created in chicao with al gore. The CCX or chicago climate exchange. Yes obama and gore did conceive this evil black nationalist/communist plan to spread the wealth around. BP is like I said in bed with BO. Its a backdoor way to spread the wealth around and pay reparations. Its a scam to make thugs like obama and gore wealthy. Its a way to control the American people through the scam of global warming/ climate change/ pollution reduction and investment, or PRI.

Even if it was true that carbon emissions make the temperature of the earth rise, the cap and trade bill will not make any difference because china and other countries will not stop doing what they are doing. They are polluting but it does not cause the temperature of the earth to increase. So even on the surface of the scam it is evident carbon emissions will NOT be reduced by the CCX. Its a total BO and BP scam! ) Story Reports

Author's Note: This is a guest post by William Semple. Mr. Semple is a drilling engineer and independent drilling consultant with 37 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. He worked for 16 years with a major oil company and has 24 years of experience as a drilling supervisor.

Sequence of events

Drilling of the Macondo well had reached total depth (TD) at 18,360 feet (ft). The previous casing shoe was at 17,168 ft. Open hole diameter was 8 ½ inches (in). Rotary Kelly Bushing (RKB) to Mud line was 5,067 ft. The open hole had been logged over a four-day period.

7 in by 9 7/8 in casing was run from TD all the way back to the wellhead--a single string.

The casing had been cemented using +/-100 bbls of slurry. There were no losses and the plug was bumped. No back flow was observed after displacement (although “U” tube effect was not significant.) Top of cement is estimated at 16,200 ft.

9 7/8 in casing hanger was landed with no lock ring (Reason not known).

No pack off or secondary seal was run (Reason not known).

11 hrs after cementing, the casing was tested to 2,650 pounds per square inch (psi) with the blind shear rams closed.

Drilling string was run to 8,367 ft.

Sequence of events

16.5 hrs after bumping the cement plug, the draw down or negative test was carried out to establish well integrity prior to displacing 14.3 pound per gallon (ppg) oil-based mud out of the well from a depth of 8,367 ft.

This test was carried out part-way through the displacement of the well to seawater including a complex spacer pill, with the well shut in and the kill line open & full of seawater. Kill line pressure was zero but there was 1400 psi on the drill pipe.

The inflow/draw down test was probably flawed. It would not equate to what the well would see after the riser was displaced to seawater. There is also witness statement information that the observation of return flow from the kill line to the cement unit was 15 bbls during the inflow test. As can been seen in the BP report, there was quite a lot going on during this process, and the data seems rather confusing. However, the test was deemed to be satisfactory.

The annular was opened up and the process of displacing the well to seawater continued at 25 to 31 barrels per minute. During this time, oil-based mud was being transferred to the supply boat, so total fluid in and out volumes could not be monitored. However, flow in and out was being monitored.

20:58-21:08 hrs there was an indication of increased flow from the riser returns. This coincided with a slowdown in pump rates and then stopping of pumps to carry out a sheen test in preparation to dump “clean” fluid returns to the sea (fluid spacer). During this period the drill pipe pressure increased (+/- 200 psi increase over five minutes).

21:15 hrs pumping restarted and returns were dumped overboard. The diverter was closed for this operation so there was no longer flow-out measurement.

21:31 pumps off. The pump pressure just prior to this had been increasing but then showed, a drop off which could have been a sign of the gas coming up to surface. Records show 4 telephone calls between the rig floor and the Toolpusher (drilling manager responsible for all operations) during this time.

21:31 – 21:47 erratic drill pipe pressure probably due to unloading of riser because of gas expansion.


21:49 Drill pipe pressure had risen rapidly to 5,800 psi. It is thought that the annular preventer may have been closed at this time. But since the drill pipe valve (Kelly cock/stab in valve) was not closed, the pressure would have reached the pumps where the relief valve pressure could have been exceeded and tripped gas would have flooded the pump room (this is speculation but quite likely).

21:49 All data transmission from the rig were lost presumably due to the explosions & fire.

21:56 hrs The EDS (emergency disconnect system which closes all valves & rams & blind shear rams on the BOP --blowout preventer--and disconnects the riser) was pressed from a remote location but it did not appear to work.

After loss of hydraulics and communication from the well the AMF (automatic mode failure system) on the BOP should have functioned. This would have closed all BOP rams but not the disconnect. This did not appear to work.

Post-explosion ROV (remotely operated vehicle) interventions were conducted to attempt to activate the blind shear rams, variable rams and other BOP functions.

Leaks were found in the system that were previously noted in the rig log.

Hydraulic system errors such that test rams (lower pipe rams) were activated instead of the lower variable rams.

Subsequent NDT (non-destructive testing) examination of the BOP indicated that the blind shear rams & variable rams did move and may be in the locked position, but final status will not be possible until the BOP is recovered.

Conclusions

Well Planning

* The hanger was run without a lock ring. Pressures from gas leaking up from the producing formation could have provided sufficient pressure to move the hanger and affect seal integrity. There was no lock ring or secondary seal (pack off) to prevent this.
* Hanger was only a single barrier—the cement was and could not be tested.
* Gas from the annulus getting past the hanger seal was the most likely source of the kick and subsequent blowout.

Policy & Procedure

The method of conducting the inflow or draw-down test in conjunction with displacement of the well from weighted mud to seawater is suspect at best, and possibly fundamentally flawed.

Basic Rig Practices

# The inflow/draw down test did not appear to offer satisfactory results, and also took place over a relatively short period of time.
# During the displacement of the well to seawater, volume, flow show and pressure anomalies were evident but did not result in the well being shut in in a timely manner.
# Even after there were some indications that all was not well, pumping operations continued. Returns were dumped and the return flow meter was bypassed,so the rig was effectively blind until things started to get quite serious.

(Here is the definitive answer to the question, what caused the manufactured crisis in the gulf.)

When the well was shut in, the drill pipe safety valve or IBOP was not closed in time to stop rapid rise in pressure getting back to the pumps and probably blowing the pressure relief valves.

(Why? Answers 1,2,3,4 of my previous questions apply.

(1) Could the BOP malfunctioned?
(2) Could the operator have make a mistake and not closed the BOP correctly or fast enough?
(3) Could a waco environmentalist have had his hands on the controls and faked the closing off of the blowout preventor???
(4) Could BP have done this on purpose to make billions through the CCX that obama and gore created?) Story Reports

What lessons can we learn from this tragedy?


(It was done on purpose.) Story reports

1. The practice of running a long string instead of a liner to seal off a reservoir means any failure in the cement job cannot be monitored. It is well known that, in certain circumstances, some of the hydrostatic pressure of the cement column can be lost during the cement-curing process. Running a liner means the cement job can be monitored or tested, or that a liner-top packer can be used to act as an additional barrier.
2. The industry should embrace existing techniques to prevent or compensate for potential loss of hydrostatic pressure during the cement-curing process.
3. Hanger assemblies can and should offer dual barriers.
4. Hangers should always include a locking mechanism. This should not be left out for the sake of convenience.
5. Cement should not be considered as a barrier unless it can be properly tested in the direction of flow.
6. Barrier policy should require dual barriers tested in the direction of flow.
7. Inflow/draw down testing and displacing wells to lighter fluids is not part of the IWCF syllabus. It should be.
8. Displacing wells to under-balance hydrostatics should require monitoring of volumes pumped and returned. The process should stop while volume is pumped to a boat.
9. Flow checks during such displacements to lighter fluids should be mandatory and thorough.
10. Basic well control training teaches us that, when there are indications of a kick, the well should be shut in.
11. Basic well control training teaches us that before closing in a well, the drill pipe should be shut in first.
12. Drillers must be empowered to have the confidence and authority to close the well in if they have any suspicions that a well might be flowing. Close the well in first – ask questions later.

Obama doesn't let a crisis go to waste

The US Coast Guard turned up on site and deluged an abandoned Deepwater Horizon until it sunk 2 days later as the Coast Guard flooded the pontoons. The sinking of the rig resulted in the failure of the riser and the initiation of the worst spill in US history. Now I am NOT apportioning any blame to the US Coast Guard, but the decision to deluge the rig? Was it really wise? I mean if they had let the fire rage what would have happened?
i). The fire would have burned fiercely above the drill floor and would have eventually consumed everything from there up.
ii). Is it possible that the pontoons, the rig legs and the drill floor could have survived the fire for a week or two or maybe even more?
iii). Is it possible that the riser could have maintained intact for many days after the blowout? Simply feeding oil and gas to a giant inferno above the rig.

It is my opinion that, the best cause of action would have been for the Coast Guard to sit back and watch the rig burn. In fact there should have been a conscious effort to keep the rig dry, as the fire would have consumed all the oil that would otherwise be spilling into the gulf. Even if the rig burned for just two weeks that time would have been invaluable for planning the response.

The current set up over the Malongo well is actually identical in principle to the set up that was sunk by the Coast Guard two days into the response operation. In fact the original set up was better as we had a Marine Riser from sea floor to deck that was structurally intact and preloaded in place.

I wonder how much BP would pay to get that scenario back in place?

Darrell Issa is making plans to hire dozens of subpoena-wielding investigators if Republicans win the House this fall




........................................................................................
(This is good news. Maybe Issa can expose the FRAUD obama. BO should be impeached for corruption as president. Obama is a traitor and a thug. A total disgrace to America. A real piece of work. The first question I would ask BO is where is your birth certificate?) Story Reports

By JAMES HOHMANN & JAKE SHERMAN

HERSHEY, Pa.— Rep. Darrell Issa, the conservative firebrand whose specialty is lobbing corruption allegations at the Obama White House, is making plans to hire dozens of subpoena-wielding investigators if Republicans win the House this fall.

The California Republican’s daily denunciations draw cheers from partisans and bookings from cable TV producers. He even bought his own earphone for live shots. But his bombastic style and attention-seeking investigations draw eye rolls from other quarters. Now, he’s making clear he won’t be so easy to shrug off if he becomes chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in 2011.

Issa has told Republican leadership that if he becomes chairman, he wants to roughly double his staff from 40 to between 70 and 80. And he is not subtle about what that means for President Barack Obama.

At a recent speech to Pennsylvania Republicans here, he boasted about what would happen if the GOP wins 39 seats, and he gets the power to subpoena.

“That will make all the difference in the world,” he told 400 applauding party members during a dinner at the chocolate-themed Hershey Lodge. “I won’t use it to have corporate America live in fear that we’re going to subpoena everything. I will use it to get the very information that today the White House is either shredding or not producing.”

In other words, Issa wants to be to the Obama administration what Rep. Dan Burton (R-Ind.) was to the Clinton administration — a subpoena machine in search of White House scandals.

Even if Republicans don’t take the House, Issa has other ambitions. Those close to him say he is eyeing a potential run for a leadership post, even though he’s a two-time loser for Republican policy chairman.

Issa also is trying to build his national brand, traveling to Pennsylvania for a summer Republican meeting. He basked in praise for his role in creating “Job-gate,” a mini scandal that forced the White House to admit that former President Bill Clinton tried to coax Rep. Joe Sestak out of the Democratic Senate primary in Pennsylvania by offering him an unpaid job.

After calling the White House “corrupt” and Obama’s presidency “failed,” Issa reiterated his claims that — despite a contrary assessment from most experts — the administration violated federal law with the Sestak imbroglio.

He also mentioned e-mail from White House deputy chief of staff Jim Messina to Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff about three possible administration jobs as the administration apparently tried to steer him away from a primary challenge against Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet.

Many Democrats — and, truth be told, even a few Republicans in the House — regard Issa as something of a clownish figure, full of bluster and a perfect representative of an age of polarized, cable TV-driven politics. He once asked a reporter what planet he was on when he questioned one of Issa’s assertions.

But some Democratic operatives think colleagues are underestimating the threat: A clown with subpoena power is no laughing matter. Issa would have the ability to barrage the White House and executive agencies with document requests and demands for officials to appear under oath.

“He’s very dangerous,” said a Democratic House aide. “He doesn’t have any parameters. He’s scary smart.”

(Would this same aid say BO was scary smart? Bo is scary incompetent. Scary liberal. Scary socialist. Scary demonic in nature.) Story Reports

Lately, Democratic apparatchiks have started flooding reporters with thick files of old articles referring to run-ins with the law during Issa’s youth. Democrats also recently shopped a 12-year-old news story about Issa’s inconsistencies in discussing his military service during a 1998 campaign.

Even with control of the House, Republicans won’t be able to easily pass their agenda into law, since the GOP is unlikely to win the Senate and would face a presidential veto on their most sweeping agenda items.

That’s actually good for Issa. With little policy work to get done, Republicans would focus on fighting and investigating Obama.

Issa is temperamentally suited for the role. He doesn’t mind making enemies, he’s in a very safe district and he craves publicity. With his slicked-back black hair, his BMW motorcycle and his net worth of more than $150 million, Issa fashions himself a rebel with a cause.

Issa already brought down a governor. Seven years ago, he financed and spearheaded the successful drive to collect petitions to recall then-California Gov. Gray Davis. He didn’t achieve his goal going in — to replace the Democrat — but he made a name for himself in the Golden State.

Issa frequently reminds reporters that he has bashed Republicans too. He pushed legislation to restrict fundraising mailers that look like the census after the Republican National Committee used the tactic. And he proudly told the crowd that he resisted pressure from the Bush White House to drop his California recall push on grounds that an unpopular incumbent Democrat could help a Republican’s electoral chances.

And it’s not like Issa would be unique in using the Oversight panel as a bully pulpit.

Most recently, Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) held the Bush administration’s feet to the fire when he chaired the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. He aggressively pressed the White House for information about U.S. attorney firings, demanded details about the use by Bush aides of private e-mail accounts, held a hearing on the disclosure of CIA agent Valerie Plame’s identity and published a report on administration officials’ misstatements about Iraq.

Waxman takes a somewhat wait-and-see approach with Issa, saying he hasn’t followed his work as closely since he left to chair the Energy and Commerce Committee. He praised Issa for being “involved in some serious oversight” with the current committee chairman, Rep. Edolphus Towns (D-N.Y.).

However, Waxman criticized Issa’s recent request for administration travel statements. “That isn’t oversight, as far as I’m concerned,” he told POLITICO. “That’s a fishing expedition. We never did things like that.”

As the committee’s chairman from 1997 to 2002, Burton issued 1,052 subpoenas to the Clinton White House and various Democrats. And he took heat for calling Clinton “a scumbag” and for releasing audiotapes of former White House lawyer Webster Hubbell’s prison telephone conversations.

Burton, who is still on the committee, sees Issa as possibly continuing his work.

“When you go after bad guys who do bad things, you’re going to be criticized,” he said in an interview. “That comes with the territory. But I’ll take somebody like Darrell Issa to milquetoast any day.”

Issa’s accomplishments in the past year also include pressing embattled insurance giant American International Group to release records about payments to Goldman Sachs, uncovering irregularities at ACORN, publicizing pornographic-laden e-mails at the Securities and Exchange Commission and memorably scolding the chief executive of Toyota.

t’s tarring Obama, though, that endears him to tea partiers. Patti Weaver, who has organized rallies in Pittsburgh, said Issa is becoming one of the central characters in Washington that conservative activists admire. She groups him with Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) — all rabble-rousers in their own right.

Yet, for all his cable news prowess and an aggressive press operation, Issa’s still not a celebrity within the Republican establishment. Pennsylvania GOP Chairman Rob Gleason introduced their guest speaker for the night as “Dan Issa.”

That didn’t bother press secretary Kurt Bardella. He updated his Facebook status after the speech: “Something tells me this is just the start of Issa’s outreach to the party and the country.”

(People are aware of the corruption in washington. Many voters know the bought and paid for politicians must be voted out. America can't wait to start grilling obama. The question is will America make it until Nov 2010? Obama is a fraud who will do anything and everything to stay in power, even to the point of destroying Americans.) Story Reports

Obama has suspended the work on the 33 projects already underway. It might look like prudence to some, it could ultimately have economic consequences rivaling those of the spill. 3,858 oil and gas platforms are still pumping oil.

3,858 could have exploded or had oil leaks. 3,858 did not. One did. It doesn't make sense to me that bp would pump seawater down the drill pipe to control the pressure. Something smells and its coming from washington dc. Its the foul stench of BO that is now in the white house. Not only will it take years to clean up obama's manufactured crisis it will also take years to remove the foul stench of BO from the white house. Story Reports

I would like to know what Mercedes Costoyas saw when she accessed obama’s student loan records

This woman should write a book or publish information about the FRAUD obama concerning his student load records. This woman could possibly blow the lid off his true identity. I hope obama doesn't offer her a deal she can't refuse before she can expose him as a FRAUD.

Brian Wellner The Quad-City Times

A woman pleaded guilty in Davenport federal court Wednesday to accessing Barack Obama’s student loan records without permission.

Mercedes Costoyas, 53, of Iowa City, is one of nine people charged with exceeding authorized computer access.

The indictments were filed last month in U.S. District Court, Davenport. Each person faces up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine, if convicted.

By pleading guilty, Costoyas still faces up to a year in prison. But her attorney, Christopher Hagenow, and prosecutor Joel Barrows said she likely faces zero to six months jail time.

She also faces deportation, according to discussion during the plea hearing, but Judge James Gritzner said “that issue is for another court on another day.”

Authorities did not specify a country.

Her sentencing is set for Sept. 24. Seven of the remaining defendants are set for trial Aug. 2. Arraignment for the ninth also is set for Aug. 2.

Costoyas and her attorney declined to comment about her intentions for accessing Obama’s student loan records.

The defendants worked for a Department of Education contractor in Coralville, Iowa, and each accessed the records on different dates between July 26, 2007, and March 13, 2009, court records state.

The others charged include Andrew J. Lage, 54, Anne C. Rhodes, Patrick E. Roan, 51, and Sandra Teague, 54, all of Iowa City; Lisa Torney, 49, and Gary N. Grenell, 58, both of Coralville; Julie L. Kline, 38, of West Branch, Iowa; and John P. Phommivong, 29, for whom no hometown was listed.

The records were accessed while Obama was a candidate for president, president-elect and after he took office, documents say.

I hope one of these 9 people will expose the FRAUD obama. It would be the best thing anyone in America could do. If I had this information like these people do I would publish it immediately. I can't wait until one of these people tell America obama is a foreign affirmative action loser who is a total FRAUD.

BP Pressured Rig Worker to Hurry Before Disaster, Father Says

Critics say the U.S. government has turned down offers of state-of-the-art Gulf cleanup help from the Netherlands and other countries because it would require a waiver of the Jones Act, a union-backed law from 1920 that restricts coastwise marine trade to U.S. ships and crews.

Obama is destroying the environment and economy on purpose. BP made the biggest contributions to obama in the election. BP and obama were in bed together and still are.

BP Pressured Rig Worker to Hurry Before Disaster, Father Says

Billy Anderson, the father of one of 11 rig workers presumed dead after an April 20 explosion and fire sank the Deepwater Horizon, talks about how his son "expressed concern" that changes to procedures were compromising safety on the drilling rig.

By Joe Carroll and Laurel Brubaker Calkins

May 28 (Bloomberg) -- The highest-ranking crew member to perish aboard the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig warned his family that BP Plc was pressuring him to sacrifice safety for the sake of time and money, his father said.

Jason Anderson, one of 11 rig workers presumed dead after an April 20 explosion and fire sank the Deepwater Horizon and triggered the worst oil spill in U.S. history, told relatives in February and March that BP was urging him to accelerate work on the Macondo well off the Louisiana coast, said his father, Billy Anderson.

On previous wells drilled with the same rig, Jason Anderson, a 35-year-old employee of vessel owner Transocean Ltd., had been able to convince BP representatives to eschew shortcuts that he believed would compromise safety, his father said. But in the eight weeks preceding the disaster, BP stepped up the pressure and overruled safety objections, Billy Anderson, 66, said.

“My Jason told me he had argued BP down a few times on previous wells when they wanted him to speed things up and make changes that were unsafe,” Billy Anderson said yesterday in an interview at his home near Blessing, Texas, about 110 miles southwest of Houston. “But the last two times he was home he said they were putting more and more pressure on him and he was worried.”

The Anderson family has retained Texas attorney Ernest Cannon to represent their interests.

The Explosion

Billy Anderson said surviving crew members have told him that on the night of the disaster, his son was on a part of the rig called the drilling floor, directing eight other Transocean workers in an effort to control a surge of pressure flowing up from the well head about 5,000 feet (1,524 meters) below the sea surface.

All nine were within a few feet of the pipe connecting the rig to the sea floor when it erupted, killing them and two workers employed by M-I Swaco, a joint venture of Smith International Inc. and Schlumberger Ltd., Billy Anderson said.

BP Chief Executive Officer Tony Hayward told the CNN television network on May 26 that “a whole series of failures” preceded the disaster.

“Safe, reliable operations are our number one,” Jon Pack, a spokesman for London-based BP, said today in a telephone interview. “It’s been Tony’s number one since he got here, and we obviously would not comment on things under investigation, under several investigations.”

22.8 Million Gallons

BP, the largest oil producer in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, yesterday began trying to stanch the flow of millions of gallons of crude by forcing fluids heavier than oil into its damaged well. A government panel estimates the leaks may have spewed 542,000 barrels, or 22.8 million gallons, of crude into the sea, more than twice the amount spilled by the Exxon Valdez tanker in 1989.

Jason Anderson talked of his concerns about BP putting rising pressure on the crew to bypass safety precautions during the seven-day shore visits he was allowed between three-week stints aboard the Deepwater Horizon, said Billy Anderson, who’s been involved in the oilfield-services equipment industry for 35 years.

In a statement, Transocean said its workers have the right to stop work any time they perceive an unsafe situation. “So critical is safety at Transocean that every crewmember has stop work authority,” the company said in the statement. This authority gives them the ability to halt work should an employee suspect an unsafe situation.

Saved Lives

In discussions with some of the 115 rig workers who were rescued after the blast, Billy Anderson said he learned that his son’s efforts during the final minutes to control the pressure surge saved scores of lives.

“My boy was cremated,” Billy Anderson said. “But the actions he and those other 10 heroes took are what made it possible for more than 100 other people to escape with their lives.”

Jason Anderson was a toolpusher, an offshore drilling job akin to foreman on a construction site, which gave him responsibility for overseeing the workers involved in the nuts- and-bolts of drilling and finishing wells.

Anderson had worked aboard the Deepwater Horizon since it was launched from a South Korean shipyard in 2001, his father said. Once the vessel arrived in the Gulf of Mexico, he worked alongside exploration specialists from BP, which had the rig under lease for all of its existence. Prior to that, he was assigned to the Cajun Express, another of Geneva-based Transocean’s most sophisticated rigs.

Father of Two

Shortly before last month’s disaster, Anderson had been promoted to senior toolpusher and was scheduled to transfer to his new post aboard another rig, the Discoverer Spirit, by helicopter at 7 a.m. on April 21. The Deepwater Horizon exploded nine hours before his flight was due to lift off.

Anderson, a father of two and a former high school football middle linebacker, started working aboard offshore rigs in 1995, scraping paint from below the water line, the lowest-ranking job on a rig.

His father thought the grueling labor would convince his son to study harder after two lackluster years of junior college. Instead, Jason Anderson decided he enjoyed being offshore and began working his way up to jobs of increasing responsibility, his father said.

“He loved his work and thought of his crewmates as family,” said Billy Anderson. “He was the kind of son a man wants and loves and hopes his son will be.”

What obama is not telling you about the gulf oil disaster

It seems the "oil disaster" is much worse than BP or the government is telling Americans.

BP drilled 25,000 to 30,000 feet BELOW the ocean floor. BP drilled so deep they hit something called a batholith. When they did is gushed forth at a pressure of between 20,000 and 70,000 psi which was beyond human ability to control. BP was drilling the deepest well underwater in history. The russians drilled this deep and more on land. The russians also hit extreme high pressures that they were not able to contain except using a nuclear bomb. It had never been done this deep in the ocean before. BP was insane to do this.

There are volatile compounds comming out of the undersea oil disaster. Hydrogen sulfide safe in 5 to 10 parts per billion. Test levels in the gulf air indicate 1,200 parts per billion are in the air. Benzine safe in levels 0 to 4 parts per billion. Gulf air levels going to the shore are now 3,000 parts per billion. Methylene chloride safe at 61 parts per billion. 3,000 to 3,400 parts per billion are in the gulf air.

The US government was insane to let BP drill this deep. This disaster happened because the pressure at the depth BP was drilling is far to great to be controlled if a batholith is breeched, Bp knew this. Obama knew this. Obama, ie the government and BP worked hand in hand to set up this man made disaster. It was a manufactured disaster. The risks were far to high knowing the uncontrollable pressures at 30,000 feet plus depths.

A hurricane could carry these toxins in the air all the way up the east coast of America.

Know you know the truth. The truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. Obama as I have said before is destroying the economy and the environment on purpose.

Why else would the obama administration allow BP to drill at such great depths the deepest offshore oil well in history? Obama gave BP the go ahead to "lite the fuse" of an off shore "dirty bomb".

Its the perfect storm for obama. Another manufactured crisis that he and rohlm will not let go to waste!

Only a FRAUD would conceal all his records. It is very very obvious obama is a FRAUD


......................................................................................

.......................................................................................
DNC failed to certify obama as eligible

If obama was born outside of the US he became an illegal alien at birth and for 33 years until 1994 when he became a citizen
........................................................................................
THE BOMBSHELL!

The former Honolulu elections clerk who says President Obama was "definitely" not born in Hawaii and has no birth certificate from any hospital in the Aloha State says he's willing to testify in court to those facts.

"The things I've said, I don't mind testifying in court," Tim Adams, the senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu in the 2008 campaign, told WND.

Tim Adams, the senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu in the 2008 campaign was quoted as stating:

"There is no birth certificate," he said. "It's like an open secret. There isn't one. Everyone in the government there knows this."

"I was working there, and this is what it was. I'm not a lawyer, just a civil servant. I know what I know. I know what I was told by the hospitals and by my supervisors."

"I had direct access to the Social Security database, the national crime computer, state driver's license information, international passport information, basically just about anything you can imagine to get someone's identity," Adams explained. "I could look up what bank your home mortgage was in. I was informed by my boss that we did not have a birth record [for Obama]."

At the time, there were conflicting reports that Obama had been born at the Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu, as well as the Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children across town. So Adams says his office checked with both facilities.


Tim Adams, the former senior elections clerk for Honolulu, says President Obama was "definitely" not born in Hawaii,and a long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate for Obama does not exist in the state.

"They told us, 'We don't have a birth certificate for him,'" he said. "They told my supervisor, either by phone or by e-mail, neither one has a document that a doctor signed off on saying they were present at this man's birth."

To date, no Hawaiian hospital has provided documented confirmation Obama was born at its facility.

"In my professional opinion, he definitely was not born in Hawaii. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that he was not born in Hawaii because there is no legal record of him being born there. If someone called and asked about it, I could not tell them that person was born in the state."

"His title was senior elections clerk in 2008," said Glen Takahashi, elections administrator for the city and county of Honolulu.

Adams oversaw a group of 50 to 60 employees and was responsible for verifying the identity of voters, especially absentee voters.

He now expects his former co-workers still working in the elections office to say little, if anything, about the non-existent birth certificate because they fear for their jobs.

"If you're working in the civil service and you say this, you're done," Adams said. "Don't expect to have a good career, especially since the governor is on the other side. Embarassing them is not good for your career."

Adams was asked about the governor's assertions about viewing a hospital-generated birth certificate from Hawaii.

"Then where is it? And why all the smoke and mirrors?" he responded. "They could end the controversy by producing the document, and they never have. It doesn't exist."

"Why would they say they've seen it and not produce it? I don't know," he added. "If they said they've seen the document, then why not produce the document? There's no need to put themselves out like that. I can't even begin to think why they did that except for some kind of political expediency. I'm too far down the totem pole [to know]."

To date, President Obama has still not provided simple, incontrovertible proof of his exact birthplace. That information would be included on his long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate which Obama has steadfastly refused to release amid a flurry of conflicting reports.

The White House has only proffered on the Internet a "Certification of Live Birth" to assert he was born in Hawaii, but that document was available to children not born in Hawaii at the time of Obama's birth.

State law specifically allows "an adult or the legal parents of a minor child" to apply to the health department and, upon unspecified proof, be given the birth document.

"Anyone can get that [Certification of Live Birth]," said Adams. "They are normally given if you give birth at home or while traveling overseas. We have a lot of Asian population [in Hawaii]. It's quite common for people to come back and get that."

Besides his actual birth documentation, documentation that remains concealed for Obama includes kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, his files from his years as an Illinois state senator, his Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records, and his adoption records.

(Only a FRAUD would conceal all his records. It is very very obvious obama is a FRAUD. Now Time Adams has concrete evidence obama is a FRAUD. It is not a "conspiracy theory" or birth movment theory, it is a man who checked obama's "birth record" in Hawaii and found NOTHING! This is hard for the "naturals" to accept.) Story Reports
