(and it’s not the oil)
By Tom in NC
Who was it that said “Never let a crisis go to waste”?
Don’t remember? It was none other than Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s Chief of Staff.
This explosion, fire and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf is raising the suspicion gauge in me more everyday. The timing of this, one day before Earth Day, smacks of environmental terrorism. But you may say why would environmentalists cause something so damaging to the environment? Just keep five words in mind: “The end justifies the means”. Now maybe the perpetrators of this disaster didn’t think it would lead to this, I don’t know, but does it matter, they will get what what they want in the end. Higher gas prices, an end to offshore drilling or make it so regulated and expensive that it would not be cost effective for the oil companies to pursue. They will have a whole new platform to scream about clean forms of energy, and again we will become slaves to Mideast oil and the prices they dictate. The MSM will happily show pictures of oil-covered birds and dead fish and they will bring in the environmental experts to push the green agenda. Now you might say why do I suspect sabotage on this oil rig. Well why else would Obama send SWAT teams to the other Gulf oil rigs if there was not criminal activity suspected.
The explosion occured on April 21, 2010 and the oil rig sank the next day on the 22nd. So what does Obama do as the worst environmental disaster in this nation’s history is enfolding in the Gulf of Mexico? He leaves for a mini vacation in North Carolina on the 23rd and does not return to Washington until the 25th. And now, eight days later, the feds are finally putting a concerted effort into trying to control the oil spill. If this had been Bush, he would have been crucified in the press and the MSM relentlessly for days, weeks and months without end. He would be called an environmental murderer, a menace to the environment, and Al Gore would turn purple with rage on the talk shows.
But Obama will get a pass from the MSM, as he always does. They’ll make excuses and the spinmeisters will be working overtime to cover his ass, and somehow they will find a way to blame Bush for this disaster. True to the words of Rahm Emanuel, Eric Holder is sending lawyers down to Louisiana and other Gulf states to cash in on the misfortunes of the fishermen and others affected by the oil spill.
After all, they can’t let a serious disaster go to waste.
British Petroleum spokesman Bill Salvin said today, May 2, 2010, that the cause of the blast remains undetermined and “we’re not ruling anything out.”
There is also a rumor that the explosion was the work of North Korea. I am dubious because the origin of that claim is the EU Times, a new (since 2009) online news outlet that has made alarming but totally bogus claims, such as the one last year about Obama calling US troops home to be deployed in Washington, D.C.
