Side Show-Kyrgyzstan Genocide

As reports continue to crowd the international headlines concerning the plight of hundreds of thousands of Uzbek refugees fleeing the catastrophic devastation of Osh in which thousands have apparently been killed in the "ethnic violence" prompting the U.N. secretary general Ban Ky Moon to call for upwards of $13 million in "humanitarian aid" for the region, the Central Asian playground of superpower geopolitical brinksmanship has once again come to the fore in yet another apocalyptic human tragedy. With Uzbekistan massing troops on the border and "interim president" Rosa Otunbayeva touring the scene of the massive bloodletting and calling for the intervention of Soviet troops, Kyrgyzstan along with neighboring Afghanistan is once again increasingly becoming the focal point of the political and economic destabilization of the region.

Otunbayeva, protected by a bullet proof vest and surrounded by a phalanx of heavily armed security personnel and bodyguards, neglected to set foot in the Uzbek enclaves of Osh that were the scene of the carnage, testifying to the still precarious and extremely unstable situation. Some sources attributed the latest chaos to the recently deposed Kurmanbek Basiev clan attempting to foment violence to destabilize the caretaker regime of Otnbayeva. Eyewitnesses testified to security forces themselves, manning Armed Personnel Carriers, and randomly firing into the Uzbek enclaves as the source of many of the fatalities, a fact which alone points to deep divisions in the security and armed forces raising the specter of an all out civil war. Immensely rich natural resources and strategic significance have made all of Central Asia a no mans land in the international struggle for energy and mineral resources between East and West with Krgyszstan the flash piont of a powder keg which could set off a much wider conflict throughout the former CIS members bordering Russia's strategic southwestern flank.(continued)

TAKING OUT THE U.S.A. 2001-2010


For any of those among us who had any lingering doubts about the future of this country and indeed the fate of modern civilization, one would think those reservations would be entirely dispelled by the apocalyptic cataclysm in the Gulf of Mexico which is slowly revealing a world historic catastrophe of an unprecedented and epoch making dimension. As extraordinary efforts by the government and its controlled media are being made to conceal the immense severity and extent of this, one of the defining moments of the modern era, an eerie and unmistakable parallel can be drawn between the Deepwater Horizon disaster and the events of September 11, 2001, which redefined the nation and the world as well as the hopes and expectations of generations. These two seemingly disparate and unconnected events are yet inextricably bound up in the predominant modern scientific-technologic paradigm that has come to represent the apex of the successive millennia of human existence. Indeed, the supplanting of the spiritual identity of mankind by the scientific technological world view has become so pervasive in its unchallenged assimilation of the human destiny so as to approach a divine status embodying an all embracing, all knowing, supra-ordinant entity from which there is no escape and no appeal. And this technological god has returned the worshipful and reverential supremacy which it has been accorded by obligingly recreating mankind in its own image.


With this resounding and seemingly irrefutable anthem of technology's obsessive mantra we come to consider the justification (or lack of it) for both of these ill fated projects which seem to express both the Nimrodian aspiration to heights (and depths) and, in their unbridled hubris, demand the inevitable and cathartic denouément which awaits all such unfounded monuments to the glory of man. Consider then the following assessment of one J. Herbert Fill, long ago in 1974, concerning the World Trade Center in particular and, in prescient anticipation, the Deepwater Horizon platform. Odd isn't it how these edifices alternately scaled the heights and plumbed the very depths to assert the domain of man in pursuit of technological supremacy. And how ironic that the very emblems of American supremacy; its technological superiority, its financial hegemony, its illimitable natural resources, and finally its vaunted military prowess became the very tools for its destruction.

"Bigness and power, the compensatory defenses against deep-seated feelings of human irrelevance that are troubling technologists, are the real reason for building such monsters... The World Trade Center, despite all the pronouncements of progress is really little more than a grand-scale metal manifestation of an entire society's neurotic defense"
Such a radical sentiment will find little currency or sympathy in a society afflicted with a fatal sense of its own triumphalism as well as a desperate addiction to the sources of its seeming illimitable power. As the unprecedented and unparalleled collapse of the symbols of international financial hegemony embodied in the twin towers shattered the assumption of American financial supremacy, foreshadowing the economic convulsions of the nation, just as surely the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe presages the end of the age of oil and the death knell of the nations toxic and long polluted environment. 

"Due to toxic gases from the fractured oil well in the Gulf of Mexico, the possible off-gassing of the highly-toxic Corexit 9500 (the chemical dispersant used by BP in the oil spill clean-up), acid rain and various as-yet-unknown forms of environmental damage, we believe that the government will have no choice but to relocate millions of people away from the Gulf Coast. Those living in Florida are presently at the highest risk, but the danger also appears likely to spread to all Gulf Coast states east of Louisiana and possibly even to the entire Eastern half of the United States once hurricane season begins.

Lastly, Lindsay Williams, a former Alaskan pipeline chaplain with high-level oil industry connections, has suggested that BP, in conjunction with the federal government, might try to cap the well by using a nuclear explosion – the environmental consequences of which are currently unknown."

Is it merely one of those supreme ironies coincident with some significant milestones in history that Barack Obama only a week before the Deepwater blowout called for increased offshore drilling for oil in a nation which had actually recently seen a noticeable decline in oil usage, or was such an announcement somehow connected to the "unforeseen event" which he in no wise could otherwise have reasonably entertained any foreknowledge of ? Astute observers of history have long concurred with a remark attributed to Franklin Delano Roosevelt. "In politics nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way". In this respect was Obama's pronouncement in some way a planned prelude or staged signal presaging the Deepwater blowout?

Before this suggestion is dismissed as yet another irresponsible and unfounded canard to be lumped onto the ever growing heap of such discarded rubbish, we must consider the very real possibility as suggested by the ever prescient Lindsey Williams as well as the respected oil/geopolitical specialist F.W, Engdahl that, much like the ongoing global warming hoax exposed by the East Anglica University "climate-gate" e-mails, the Peak Oil scenario, so universally accepted as established science, is itself at best an ill-informed psuedo-scientific theory or, at worst, a calculated agenda of disinformation designed to delimit and proscribe US domestic oil exploration and production.

"According to Kutcherov, a leading specialist in the theory of abiogenic deep origin of petroleum, 'What BP drilled into was what we call a ‘migration channel,’ a deep fault on which hydrocarbons generated in the depth of our planet migrate to the crust and are accumulated in rocks, something like Ghawar in Saudi Arabia.' Ghawar, the world’s most prolific oilfield has been producing millions of barrels daily for almost 70 years with no end in sight. According to the abiotic science, Ghawar like all elephant and giant oil and gas deposits all over the world, is located on a migration channel similar to that in the oil-rich Gulf of Mexico.
As I wrote at the time of the January 2010 Haiti earthquake disaster, Haiti had been identified as having potentially huge hydrocasrbon reserves, as has neighboring Cuba. Kutcherov estimates that the entire Gulf of Mexico is one of the planet’s most abundant accessible locations to extract oil and gas, at least before the Deepwater Horizon event this April.
What the enormity of the oil spill does is to also further discredit clearly the oil companies’ myth of “peak oil” which claims that the world is at or near the “peak” of economical oil extraction. That myth, which has been propagated in recent years by circles close to former oilman and Bush Vice President, Dick Cheney, has been effectively used by the giant oil majors to justify far higher oil prices than would be politically possible otherwise, by claiming a non-existent petroleum scarcity crisis." F.W. Engdahl

And just for good measure,we have the following from the sagacious and inestimable Bob Chapman:

Wait until the public finds out the oil fiasco was a false flag operation to pass Cap & trade and carbon taxes among other things. BP is junk and everyone knows it in spite of the attempted payoffs to Fitch. It won’t be long before the rating is junk and institutions are forced to sell the bonds for virtually nothing. It is even money BP will bite the dust. The bad news on the oil blowout gets worse every day as Obama tries to hide what is really going on so they can get carbon taxes. The Illuminists blew it. They didn’t know they were drilling into an oil volcano. There will be no way to plug the hole. The deluge will flow for years.

On top of the environmental catastrophe currently unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico the situation may about to get even worse as new reports from the US are confirming the grim predictions of Russian scientists regarding the oil dispersement poisons being used by BP which are being swept up into the clouds and falling as toxic rain destroying every living plant it touches.

The Intel Hub

Alex Thomas & Shepard Ambellas

British Petroleum has openly admitted that they have used at least 1,021,000 gallons of dispersant in the Gulf of Mexico. The same chemicals that have been banned in the UK for over ten years! The active ingredient in this pesticide is a known neurotoxin that is acutely toxic to both human and aquatic life, causes cancer, causes damage to internal organs such as the liver and kidneys simply by absorbing it through the skin and may even cause reproductive side effects. (source)

This is absolutely ridiculous. BP is openly committing a chemical attack against the United States! These chemicals alone have the very real possibility of causing a massive evacuations and the EPA KNOWS that these chemicals are highly toxic. The Obama administration, the EPA, and British Petroleum are knowingly causing this oil spill to be one hundred times worse and are participating it what can only be described as a chemical attack on the Gulf region.

“Corexit has also earned the highest EPA warning label for toxicity which means the effects of the toxic chemicals to the eye are corrosive resulting in irreversible destruction of ocular tissue and other tissue with corneal involvement along with an burning that can persist for more than 21 days and effects to human skin are corrosive resulting in tissue destruction into the dermis and/or scarring.”(Source)

The main ingredient of Corexit is 2-Butoxyethanol, which is known to cause human health problems that can affect everything from the liver, the central nervous system, and the kidneys. It is also known to be toxic to the blood!

At one time, massive evacuations seemed far fetched but at this point it seems almost locked in stone. The people in the Gulf will not be able to continue living an area where deadly chemicals are being dispersed. British Petrolum, which has known ties to groups such as the Bilderbergs, and the Trilateral Commission seems to be intent on not only destroying the gulf but potentially harming millions of American citizens. On top of that, there is no possibility that BP could be doing this without the consent of the federal government.

Unreleased EPA report detailing presence of volatile organic compounds in the Gulf of Mexico after the Deepwater Horizon blow out:


Hydrogen Sulfide- allowable levels=5/10 parts per billion * recorded levels=1200 parts per billion

Benzene-allowable levels=0/4 parts per billion * recorded levels=3000 parts per billion

Methylene Chloride-allowable levels=61 parts per billion * recorded levels= 3000-3400 parts per billion

An article by Romy Varghese in the WSJ today has raised the specter of an imminent flood of municipal bond defaults which many of the more astute financial commentators have long expected to inundate the nation with a vengeance, crippling the ability of municipalities to fund basic service and public safety issues, and in general wreaking an unprecedented economic and social havoc across the nation. The muni-bond canary in the coal mine was found dead in the tiny one square mile municipality of Central Falls, Rhode Island, whose mayor and city council petitioned the State for receivership on May 19, 2010 citing a $3 million deficit in its $18 million budget, a deficit which is expected to grow to $5 million in 2011. The municipality also must pay interest on $17 million in general obligation debt. Even more serious was the revelation of only $4 million in assets in the municipal pension fund with an outstanding $35 million dollars in liabilities. It is estimated that more than one out of every three residents of Central Falls, a city of 19,000 with an Hispanic population of 40%, lives in poverty. Central Falls acheived some national notoriety last March 1 when President Obama publicly endorsed the firing of 93 teachers and administrators from the senior high school by the Board of Trustees as only 7% of 11th graders tested proficient in math. Some of the teachers were renistated after a labor agreement allowed them an increased work load and longer hours.

Almost in tandem with this seemingly innocuous news item was the larger news of the impending bankruptcy of the AMBAC Financial Group bond insurance agency whose toxic assets of over $64 billion were recently seized by Wisconsin state regulators. Ambac has floated a decision not to make interest rate payments as early as the 2nd quarter of 2010. As a consequence, a bond holder committee is attempting to enter into bankruptcy to restructure $1.24 billion in senior debt. Similar actions might be pending for MBIA Inc., AMBAC's main competitor also suffering massive losses from mortgage backed securities investments. Both organizations also have significant exposure to collateralized debt obligations, some $16.4 billion in AMBAC's case. Here follows a concise summary of the situation by Dave over at the Golden Truth:
"Looks like Ambac - the bond insurer that has been savaged by it's very poor investment decisions, incompetent management and credit default swaps - is getting ready to go tits up, while Bernanke cheerleads the lemmings off the cliff in front of Congress. ABK's stock is currently down 37% on volumn that will end up today well over 3x the average daily volumn for the past 10 trading days.

Here's the article link courtesy of a commentor:
ABK = R.I.P. The collateral effect of this situation could be quite staggering - the financial equivalent of the BP oil catastrophe - as this will potentially trigger $100's of billions in related credit default swaps and other toxic derivative transactions. Muni paper, the largest beneficiary of ABK credit protection, could face staggering losses.

Ambac was one of the major beneficiaries from the $800 billion TARP and $1.25 trillion in toxic bond purchases by the Fed, as that monetization prevented the triggering of ABK's absurdly large portfolio of credit default swaps related to the Company's horrific investment decisions over the past 10 years. I guess Banana Ben is too busy working out the details of his next helicopter drop to be bothered with specific details about why he looked like an utter idiot in front of the public today. Got gold?"

In Central Falls, a name which might come to be remembered as the first domino to fall in the long list of municipailties enmired in similar dire economic straights in a $2.8 trillion national muni-bond market, City Solicitor John Gannon said "We made significant budget cuts. We laid off people from all departments. At this point, we are down to the bone as far as public safety is concerned". As early as 1991, as an alternative to outright bankruptcy, and according to state law, Rhode Island had appointed a panel to review the city's finances. Such an alternative in the most recent crisis was no longer deemed possible. The state legislature recently closed a $427 million deficit by cutting $165 to municipal government and school districts. According to Don Beardsley, executive director of the Rhode Island League of Cities and Towns, such budget cuts "will put several municipalities over the precipice". Rhode Island is one of 22 States which have no provision for Chapter 9 bankruptcy. Under the temporary receivership of attornery John Savage, $4 million in tax anticipation notes will be mailed.
ps.It is being reported that a massive network of big banks and financial institutions have been involved in blatant bid-rigging fraud that cost taxpayers across the U.S. billions of dollars. The U.S. Justice Department is charging that financial advisers to municipalities colluded with Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Lehman Brothers, Wachovia and 11 other banks in a conspiracy to rig bids on municipal financial instruments.

The unprecedented Deepwater Horizon off shore drilling rig catastrophe which began on April 20 at 10:00 pm local time with the sinking of the rig itself occurring on April 22 (Earth Day) only some few months after the massive magnitude 8 earthquake which devastated Haiti on January 12 has focused attention on the immense consequences of natural and human precipitated environmental cataclysms which in their severity, intensity and unexpected extent once again reveal the extremely tenuous and conditional nature of human species on this planet. The increasingly volatile interface and subsequent symbiosis between complex applied technologies and the forces inherent in the natural environment have reached a point of critical inflection which portends vast and potentially irreversible dislocations in the sustainable and precarious balance between mankind and the rest of creation, the natural world of our earthly abode. Ever since the monstrous blow of Katrina, the Gulf Coast of the United States is disintegrating in the face of an all out assault by a profound natural disaster and now a cataclysmic flood of crude. The southern wall of Fortress America is being rapidly and inexorably undermined and breached and the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe signals the final fatal thrust into the heartland.

The extent to which certain far reaching and, for the most part, generally recondite advances in scientific technologies are actually operative in recent natural and man-made disasters remains obscure and the source of much speculation. Due to the involvement of the military and intelligence agencies with so called national security and the proprietary dimensions of institutional corporate economic, and industrial prerogatives, a great deal of secrecy, doublespeak, and outright falsity envelops the recent milestone events of the last decade which have defined our political social and economic identity. Of course, such efforts to conceal, fabricate or deny imply a hidden agenda to deceive and mislead the public concerning issues critical to the general collective welfare founded on natural law.

Thus the very physics of the events of 9/11 are still a matter of much public dispute even within scientific circles, not to speak of the massive weight of evidence pointing to government conspiracy and collusion.The subsequent allegations of weapons of mass destruction, mysterious centrifuges, chemical weapons, "yellow cake" uranium and the like which led to the invasion of Iraq have all been called into serious question and for the most part have been utterly disproven. Likewise, the recent revelations of the outright falsification of data at the University of East Anglica upon which the "established science" of global warming was largely founded provide the most obvious evidence of statistical manipulation in service to political ideology masquerading as empirical scientific fact. Yet the "official" versions remain largely unchallenged though once again called into serious question or being outright discredited.

Billions if not trillions of dollars spent on war on false pretext with hundreds of thousands of lives lost to conflict and its concomitant plagues and scientific and social policy based on falsified data negatively impacting the lives of millions is itself indicative of a grotesquely and patently false social paradigm. This kind of dissociative and obviously pathological behavior, which would be deemed in the individual the hallmark of a dangerous insanity, in the case of governments,economic and scientific institutions becomes not only accepted and unquestioned fact, if only by default, but also a matter of an unfounded faith for the vast majority of individuals. While it is generally of little concern to most that our entire social edifice is predicated and founded on a lie, and a great, deathly, and all consuming lie at that, the profound metaphysical and spiritual implications of the grand delusion reach into and pervade every facet of our lives.

It is in this wider context in which we seek to place the cataclysmic petro-volcano miles deep in the Gulf of Mexico. Once again we are presented with a version of events which can be immediately characterized as, at best, hopelessly inconsistent, and at worst a conscious exercise in utter mendacity; an attempt to evade, misrepresent and even denythe very origins and the profound extent of the catastrophe from day one. The requisite release of information fed to media and internet has spawned the expected info feeding frenzy. Sensational and pre-programmed data conspire to swarm the electronic airwaves which merge unconsciously with our neural pathways to explain the unknown and disconcerting. Since we already know the mainstream fiction by heart, we will let fly with a few of the internet conspiracy theories:

scenario 1: A Blackwater SWAT team operating with Halliburton, after actually testing the now notorious blow out protection control valve on the very day of the disaster three successive times and a mysterious fourth test (never carried out) actually ignites the bubble of gas which has come rushing up from the depths of the well with tremendous pressure and erupts across the deck of the semi-submersible rig and destroys it in a massive fireball. The rig of course contains a "black box"( much like an airline)which records detailed records of operational procedures communicating with the mainland. The Box was mysteriously disabled at 3:00 pm, just seven hours before the conflagration. Motive? The elimination of British Petroleum/Royal Dutch Shell and Queen Beatrix of Holland from the Gulf in some type of Bilderberger turf war and the expropriation of the magnificent ocean of oil "vein" which extends all the way to Venezuela. Remember, of course, Daniel Day Lewis in "There Will Be Blood".

scenario 2: US Orders Blackout Over North Korean Torpedoing Of Gulf Of Mexico Oil Rig
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers A grim report circulating in the Kremlin today written by Russia’s Northern Fleet is reporting that the United States has ordered a complete media blackout over North Korea’s torpedoing of the giant Deepwater Horizon oil platform owned by the World’s largest offshore drilling contractor Transocean that was built and financed by South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd., that has caused great loss of life, untold billions in economic damage to the South Korean economy, and an environmental catastrophe to the United States.

Most important to understand about this latest attack by North Korea against its South Korean enemy is that under the existing “laws of war” it was a permissible action as they remain in a state of war against each other due to South Korea’s refusal to sign the 1953 Armistice ending the Korean War.

To the attack itself, these reports continue, the North Korean “cargo vessel” Dai Hong Dan believed to be staffed by 17th Sniper Corps “suicide” troops left Cuba’s Empresa Terminales Mambisas de La Habana (Port of Havana) on April 18th whereupon it “severely deviated” from its intended course for Venezuela’s Puerto Cabello bringing it to within 209 kilometers (130 miles) of the Deepwater Horizon oil platform which was located 80 kilometers (50 miles) off the coast of the US State of Louisiana where it launched an SSC Sang-o Class Mini Submarine (Yugo class) estimated to have an operational range of 321 kilometers (200 miles).

On the night of April 20th the North Korean Mini Submarine manned by these “suicidal” 17th Sniper Corps soldiers attacked the Deepwater Horizon with what are believed to be 2 incendiary torpedoes causing a massive explosion and resulting in 11 workers on this giant oil rig being killed outright. Barely 48 hours later, on April 22nd , this North Korean Mini Submarine committed its final atrocity by exploding itself directly beneath the Deepwater Horizon causing this $1 Billion oil rig to sink beneath the seas and marking 2010’s celebration of Earth Day.

While these titillating and sensational screenplays attract the cadres of the conspiratorially minded, the general public is treated to the usual smokescreen of ever present scandals concerning the calamity. BP's $3.5 billion in campaign contributions to Congress over a 20 year period, over $77,000 of which went to Obama giving him the peculiar and now dubious distinction of being the top recipient of BP funding.

$10,000 went to Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu who in referring to the fiasco revealed herself as unofficial BP spokesperson saying “I mean, just the gallons are so minuscule compared to the benefits of U.S. strength and security, the benefits of job creation and energy security, so while there are risks associated with everything, I think you understand that they are quite, quite minimal.” BP's $1.5 million annual lobbying apparently bought"categorical exclusion" from the National Environmental Policy Act at the behest of the Minerals Management Service of the Department of the Interior. Six days before the disaster BP was still petitioning the Department for an expansion of its waivers from federal environmental policy. Perhaps it was this kind of kid gloves treatment by the Interior Department which necessitated Interior head Ken Salazar to manfully suggest after the blowout that the government was "putting its boot on the neck of BP", a boot which mysteriously altered course and became stuck in the Secretary of the Interior's mouth. The following is from an interview with Karen Suckling, executive director of the Center of Biological Diversity, on Democracy Now!

The President should start an initiation of an investigation of Ken Salazar and his role in allowing this to happen. Salazar has been a major proponent of the offshore oil drilling industry. He passed legislation as a senator in 2006 to open up the Gulf of Mexico in the first place to offshore oil drilling. He gets campaign contributions by British Petroleum. And then he walks into this agency he is supposed to reform, and instead of reforming it, pushes it to do even more offshore oil drilling. So Ken Salazar is part of the problem here, not the solution. He should not be doing the investigation of MMS. He should be under investigation for helping to cause this crisis

Further revelations of a $506 million insurance policy on the defunct rig by its owners offshore drilling behemoth Transocean Ltd. which was the occasion of an initial immediate $411 million cash settlement brought back memories of the notorious Larry Silverman's insurance policy taken out on the World Trade Center Towers only weeks before the attacks on 9/11 for a similar amount. With indemnities related to the catastrophe over $200 million, Transocean will realize a profit of over $270 million as a result of the"greatest environmental disaster in U.S. history" These tidbits, obviously designed to stir the pot of righteous public indignation over the excesses of corporate America were all too similar to the public outrage which greeted the windfall profits, executive bonuses and general financial skullduggery at Goldman Sachs. It is well known of course that in addition to having many of its notable alumni ensconced in the Obama administration, Goldman was Obama's numero uno campaign contributor in 2008.

The Goldman Squid, whose notorious and ubiquitous financial blood funnel could be found firmly lodged in the deeper recesses of this scandal as well as so many others apparently owned the company which manufactured the highly toxic Corexit chemical dispersant agent used exclusively by BP over the objections of the EPA, which sickened many of the local shrimpers and fishermen that BP had press ganged into floating booms to contain the oil slicks approaching the gulf coasts. In addition Goldman had conveniently unloaded almost 400,000 shares of BP shares last January 31, initiating a wholesale dumping of BP stock by other financial heavyweights throughout the first quarter of this year. Perhaps a little evidence of significant insider trading here much like the infamous and mysterious puts placed on American and United Airlines shortly before the 9/11 attacks. The significant question whether Goldman's dumping of BP stocks over the quarter prior to the disaster becomes more acute when it is realized that current BP chairman Tony Hayward divested himself of major portions of the company's stock apparently only some days before the blowout.

the following from Zerohedge goes into greater detail delineating the curious and fortuitous dumping of of Goldman's BP stock holdings in the run up to the oil rig blowout:

"As the chart above demonstrates, there is an "odd" correlation between Goldman's sellside sentiment on the stock, and the amount of stock held by Goldman's asset management arm, especially evident in the days between December 31, 2009 and March 31, 2010, when despite a recent Buy rating attached to the firm, GSAM sold off more than 40% of its stake in the name. On December 31, Goldman held 71 million BP shares, and three months later this number went down 42.5 million. Another oddity is that back in 2008, when GS had the stock at Neutral, GSAM doubled its stake in the firm from 28.8 million shares to 57.3 million days before Ms. della Vigna raised the stock to a Buy, albeit if only for just over a month. Oddly enough, in the half year period when Goldman was telling its clients to Sell the stock, between 3/31/2009 and 10/28/2009, GSAM holdings declined by a whopping -3.9%."

Chances are that if anyone really knows what transpired on the day of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion one most likely candidate would be the former chairman of BP plc and chairman of Goldman Sachs International (GSAM), Peter Sutherland (photo left). Mr. Sutherland is truly one of those generally unknown and yet extremely powerful and influential individuals who, with his important standing in many supra-national global organizations, has defined and created international political and financial policy for the past three decades. As founding director-general of the World Trade Organization (WTO), acting general director of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), European Chairman of the Trilateral Commission, chairman of the London School of Economics, board member of the Royal Bank of Scotland, Sutherland was also on the Board of Governors instrumental in the crafting of the Maastricht Treaty which inaugurated the European Union.

Given even the vague outlines of this insanely exalted and complicated pedigree, it would be no stretch of the imagination to suggest that Mr. Sutherland is privy to the workings of the global elite in a way that few of us "morts" can imagine. We think it is safe to assume that the given the exponentially growing global and strategic significance of the worst environmental disaster in history, that the BP/Deepwater Horizon/Transocean Ltd. oil rig explosion and the subsequent volcanic rupture of crude into the Gulf and soon to be the Mid and North Atlantic, at the very least either comprises the tragic and inevitable consequences of the globalist agenda for control of worldwide natural and financial resources or embodies an integral component in the ongoing plans of the elite for their One World Corporation Unlimited.

Sutherland presided over the scandal and crisis plagued arrival of British Petroleum to the shores of America after its merger with Amoco in 1998. Under his watch the recently acquired Texas City oil refinery became the third worst oil refinery fire in U.S. history killing 11 workers and injuring over a 170 on March 23, 2005. Less than a year later on March 2, 2006, a huge leak at Alaska's Prudhoe Bay facility was belatedly discovered, ultimately releasing 267,00 gallons into the snow as an automatic leak detection system failed to discover oil seeping from corroded pipelines. A smaller leak later polluted the bay in Long Beach, CA. Critics claimed that bottom line cost cutting measures and the ability to pay the huge fines, some $98 million alone in the Prudhoe Bay incident, permitted and encouraged "catastrophic safety risks". Along with competitors Exxon and Royal Dutch Shell, BP was the subject of criminal and civil investigation over manipulation of crude oil and unleaded fuel markets in 2003/2004.

Given the recent history of British Petroleum in the United States and in particular the emerging involvement of Goldman Sachs, British Petroleum and trans-global and trans-national organizations in the ongoing Deepwater Horizon world environmental catastrophe, the question arises as to the nature of this extremely complex nexus of influences emanating from powerful financial, political and scientific/technological/corporate institutions so dynamically represented in the person of Mr. Peter Sutherland. It is interesting to note that Mr. Sutherland recently was attending the notorious Bilderberg gathering in Stiges, Spain along with many other global power elites.

It is a testimony to the growing public awareness of the putative machinations of these powerful elite agencies operating behind the thrones of sovereign nations and pervading our social and economic institutions that suspicions immediately arise as to the involvement of a cabal of conspiratorial forces in any significant crisis or catastrophic event. While ignoring for the moment the relevance of the relative merits of these "conspiracy theories" what is obvious is that there is a genuine and serious crisis of public confidence in those institutions which embody the collective aspirations of societies. Nowhere has this become more pervasive than the economic collapse and the widespread perception that political and economic institutions have played a critical and pivotal role in what many have suggested is an engineered social catastrophe.

There is much well founded commentary which suggests that our so-called democratic institutions have long ago become incapable of governance and that not only crisis control, but crisis creation has become the mode de jour of national political management. This became apparent in the disputed presidential election of 2000 which was decided not by popular or even electoral vote but by mandate of the Supreme Court. This gross electoral miscarriage was followed shortly thereafter by the attacks of 9/11 which were foreshadowed by the now infamous Project for a New American Century memorandum which called for "a new Pearl Harbor" as a pretext for US military involvement in the emerging and strategic geo-political theater of Central Asia, the blueprint for which was curiously laid out in years earlier in Zbigniew Brzezinski's "The Grand Chessboard".

Given these significant "a priori" designs, which were subsequently realized in such detail that criminal culpability in violation of every applicable domestic and international convention could be proven beyond the shadow of reasonable doubt, the denial of the obvious evidence of such criminal conspiracy and racketeering can only be attributed to a disingenuous and willful ignorance which is itself evidence of collusion and actionable complicity.

Looked at through this clarifying lens of the painful experience of significant past events, and given the established precedent of criminal conspiracy at the highest levels of governmental, technological and financial institutions in these events up to and including massive economic dislocations, it is scarcely unreasonable to suggest that the emerging and yet still vague outlines of the Deepwater Horizon disaster will eventually expose the same pattern of an engineered and manipulated crisis designed to further the hidden agenda of an elite minority of world managers at the expense of a humankind they propose to subvert, control, and eventually target for elimination.
