Common Sense Show – by Dave Hodges
This week, Halliburton, the contractor that worked on BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig, has just gotten away with murder! This rogue corporation has agreed to pay a mere $1.1 billion dollars to settle most of the lawsuits over its role in the Gulf of Mexico spill. The settlement is lower than the $1.3 billion dollars that the Houston company had set aside for the case.
Justice still has not been done as Halliburton, BP, Goldman Sachs and Transocean got away manslaughter and illegally profiteering from the misery that these four corporations perpetrated on an entire region of the United States.
Many In The Gulf Will Never Get Their Lives Back
During my investigative work on the Gulf oil explosion, I have made several friends in the Gulf and I take what happened to the people in the Gulf very personally. So many people in the Gulf have suffered so much and their lives have been so degraded.
In the early days of the aftermath of the explosion, Kindra Arnesen became a spokesperson for the victims. Her husband, David, was a highly successful shrimp fisherman and like so many, he lost his business. Despite what Halliburton, BP, Transocean and Goldman Sachs would have you believe, the people in the Gulf were never fully, or even mostly compensated for their losses. Kindra is frequently sick and breaks out into rashes. David has gray “goo” oozing from his ears. Their beautiful daughter is constantly sick and since the spill has rashes and shows signs of acute asthma, something she did not have a trace of before the event. In Kindra’s last appearance in my show, she told stories about how every child in her daughter’s elementary school is sick. Children, with their hair falling out is the norm.
Nobody has made the Arnesen’s whole. One billion dollars paid out by Halliburton can’t come close to compensating the people of the Gulf for the horror that they have been through and the financial losses that they have suffered. As bad as the leaking oil was, the use of the highly toxic chemical, Corexit, was used to ostensibly “contain” the spill. Corexit is banned by 17 countries. The EPA ordered that Corexit not be used. However, the rogue corporations did it anyway. I have previously reported that NALCO was manufacturer of the Corexit. I also previously noted that Halliburton, Goldman Sachs and BP were partners in the manufacture of Corexit. In other words, these corporations benefitted from the use of this highly toxic chemical which killed, at the average age of 51, every clean-up worker from the Exxon Valdez oil spill. However, this did not stop these perpetrators of this event from profiting from their own complicity in perpetrating this event. And still, nobody goes to jail. And if you don’t think officials from these corporation should not go to jail, read the following details of their criminal activity:
Halliburton was drilling at the base of the Deepwater Horizon. Very coincidentally, only 11 days before, on April 9, 2010, Halliburton purchased Boots and Coots for a quarter of a billion dollars. Just who is Boots and Coots? Coincidentally, they are the largest oil clean up firm in the world. And when the explosion took place 11 days later, wasn’t it fortunate that Halliburton was at the scene armed with Boots and Coots as they capitalized on their timely good fortune. Whatever happened to that oil rig, happened as a result of Halliburton’s actions at the base of the oil rig. Were the actions of Halliburton deliberate? You bet they were as Halliburton was in the right place at the right time to sabotage the oil rig. Plus the black box of the oil rig was never recovered. On The Common Sense Show, Captain Kelly Sweeney stated that ever before in history had a black box been not been recovered from such an event. Further, the six hours of tapes from the bridge of the oil rig went missing and nobody was held accountable for this cover-up. If the average person was associated with these facts as I have written, we would all be charged and go to prison. And if you want to know if there was criminal intent, please consider that Halliburton’s profits increased 83% in just 3 months following the Gulf Oil Crisis. Eleven men had to die and the ecology and environmental safety conditions for 30 million Americans had to be compromised in order for Halliburton to enjoy its good fortune. It was simply raining coincidences on April 20, 2010!
All along, I have contended that Halliburton was only the first mover on that fateful night. and their criminal intent had three noteworthy accomplices.
Halliburton’s Partners In Crime
British Petroleum was the owner of the oil being removed from the floor of the Gulf. BP CEO Tony Hayward sold 40% of his BP holdings in the weeks prior to the spill and paid off his mortgage on his estate in Kent, England, avoided staggering losses. And true to form involving the pattern of perpetuating a false flag event with media complicity, on June 8, 2010, less than six weeks following the oil spill, BP bought Google and Yahoo Search Terms, related to the oil spill, in an obvious attempt to conceal as much of the truth as possible from the public.
Goldman Sachs and Transocean instituted a “put option” on Transocean’s stock for preferred Transocean insiders the very morning of the explosion. Transocean boldly walked away with a $270 million dollar profit immediately following the explosion because they had doubly indemnified the rig only weeks prior to the explosion through Lloyds of London. This alone should have been enough to trigger a massive investigation. The subsequent cover-up for this event began in 2007, three years before the event, as Goldman Sachs reorganized Transocean, the owner of the destroyed oil rig, into a Cayman Island corporation. In doing so, it made Transocean virtually impossible for Congress to investigate and subsequently discipline the perpetrators.
Oh, and the President got his hands dirty as well. The late Bob Chapman, while appearing on the Alex Jones Show in June of 2010, revealed that Obama’s only asset holder, Vanguard I and Vanguard II, dramatically sold off BP stock only few weeks before Gulf oil explosion. Chapman also revealed that “According to this FSB report the largest seller of BP stock in the weeks before this disaster occurred was the American investment company known as Vanguard who through two of their financial arms (Vanguard Windsor II Investor and Vanguard Windsor I Investor) unloaded over 1.5 million shares of BP stock saving their investors hundreds of millions of dollars, chief among them was President Obama. The FSB further estimates in this report that through Obama’s three accounts in the Vanguard 500 Index Fund he stands to make another $100 million over the next 10 years as their largest stock holding is in the energy giant Exxon Mobil which they believe will eventually acquire BP and all of their assets for what will be essentially a “rock bottom” price and which very predictably BP has hired Goldman Sachs to advise them on.”
The top five dumping institutions of BP stock just prior to the spill included Goldman Sachs Asset Management, L.P. (-4,680,822), Wachovia Bank National Association(-2,667,419) and it is important to note that Wachovia is a subsidiary of Goldman Sachs, thus, making this one tight little family of co-conspirators. We also see massive dumping of Sanders Capital, LLC (-1,371,785) and PNC Bank, National Association (-1,177,413) brings noted globalist George Soros into the conspiracy as well. And we now know who orchestrated the entire event. these massive sell-offs of BP stock, BEFORE the event shows foreknowledge and criminal intent as these criminal institutions failed to warn the 11 men who lost their lives on April 20, 2010.
Millions Will Die Premature Deaths In the Gulf
Famed researcher, Dr. Wilma Subra summed up the situation in the Gulf like this, “The toxicity is in the air, it’s in water, it’s in the food and most of all it is in the people”. These were not just words spoken by Dr. Subra, she found benzene levels 65 times the expected level in several people she tested in the Gulf.
The average Exxon Valdez worker, as I have stated, lived to be 51. What impact will this even have on the people of the Gulf? Will the coastal residents lose 10, 20, 30 years off of their collective lives? We will not know for another 40 years what the impact this even will fully be. Meanwhile, we, as a nation accept the small slap on the wrist just doled out to Halliburton. The depraved indifference of the American public is almost as great as what is on display by the perpetrators of this event!
It is also important to note that Ken Feinberg was put in charge of dispersing funds to the victims in the Gulf. This is the same Feinberg who played the same role after 9/11 when he denied first responders who came to the rescue medical coverage. The government ordered that $20 billion dollars in restitution be paid out. To date, a little over $4 billion dollars has been paid out. Meanwhile, these four corporations are enjoying record profits! Is this not a microcosm of the public’s indifference to the NWO takeover of America?
