Long Absence of BP related articles.
Readers would have noticed the long absence of our BP Gulf disaster articles until recently in late January. We stopped writing about BP’s Macondo Blowout & mega oil spill disaster since early Sept 2011. Not because we had run out of issues to write. Not because the disaster and its environmental impact have fallen out of favor or out of the mainstream media’s focus. On the contrary, there was even more to write after an insider’s tip to http://oilspillhub.org. The website was registered on 21 June 2010, under Purdue University.
Initially it was to concentrate on reviewing the long hours of the early videos. Then there was the cointelpro soon after revealing videos and snapshots were posted on cyberspace by various members of our circle. While the American public was demanding to know the truth of the disaster and the early videos of the accident (crime) scene, BP submitted (discreetly) the eagerly awaited videos to Congress. Why were these revelatory videos not released to the public in May 2010? BP obviously needed time to doctor the videos and to let public anger subside first. It works to their advantage if the truth is known later.
Only when the lying stops can the healing begin.
We need to keep the Gulf issues alive, not for any political or monetary gains but for the continuing long term damage to the world's environment and climate from the continuing leak (crude oil, methane and other hazardous gas) from the reservoir and vaporization of hydrate. Despite its far reaching consequences, the hypocrite world leaders continue to be silent and blind to the illegal and corrupt activities in the oil industry.
Many have risked their lives, overcame tremendous odds and sacrificed hours of thankless unpaid tasks analyzing these ROV videos. Decoys have to be identified from the authentic. Doctored details distinguished from actual ground details recorded at site. Finally, we have to make sense of them all with respect to the time line of real events. To all those who had contributed their time, efforts and collaboration, we salute and thank you. Many more worked silently behind the scene to make these series of articles possible. Your contribution in helping to save the planet and the environment are beyond mere words of thanks and gratitude. With this introduction, we now turn to the second part of the series, “BP's Deception in the Gulf Exposed”.
The other series “BP's killing spree in the Gulf” (dealing with long term environmental consequences of the Gulf disaster) and “The mafia in the global oil industry” (the crime of mass destruction and unscrupulous market manipulation behind these mega oil spill disasters) are in their final drafts and shall be released later under certain circumstances.
There is little doubt BP needed to lie to cover the “hole”.
What the public do not realize is the extend of the cover-ups to hide a really big hole. Not only did BP illegally and indiscriminately drilled 3 wells over a 7 month period, they intentionally blew up the last after fighting through hell to reach the reservoir at 18,360 ft bsl. To the sleepy ignorant world at large, it just does not make any sense. Why spend more than USD200 million just to blow it up? The Nazis burned down their own Reichstag in Berlin on 27 February 1933 for the same reason. Pearl Harbour was allowed to happen to get US into the war. 911 is now confirmed to an inside job. So was Fukushima 311, a deliberate crime of mass destruction planned Khazarian Satanists. Would the BP's Gulf disaster be any different, especially in the light of so many incriminating evidence?
This disaster is one of the many, designed to push the world into global economic anarchy, mass destruction and catastrophic climate change. There is a lot of mis-information being floated in cyberspace to counter the truth and the real agenda of geopolitics and global control by the cabals.

BP’s Crime of Mass Deception. - 17 Aug 2010.
Coincidence is the word we often use when we want to hide the truth and BP’s oil spill disaster has more than its fair share of coincidences. Matt Simmons’ death 2 days ago, is a great loss to all those seeking the truth. In one of his final interviews, Matt Simmons said, “It was painful as can be… to be the only person in the industry that was willing to speak out.” This article is dedicated to him and all living beings on earth that had been harmed by BP or agents employed by BP, in this crime of the century; BP’s Crime of Mass Deception.
The failure of the latest “static kill” on the wrongly capped well (Macondo A) is the final nail on the head for BP’s crime of mass deception. This article is the first of several series that will present evidence of BP’s crime of mass deception for public discussion. Without doubt, underhand tactics and adulterated data would be used to discredit my articles and me as they had done on Matt Simmons. Self-serving bloggers would be employed by BP to disseminate distorted half-facts and confuse the general public under the guise of technical discussions. Do not be intimidated by technical jargons meant to confuse, for the truth is always simple and logical. There are no hidden motives in my series of articles other than to educate, disseminate the truth and point out the obvious flaws in BP’s crime of mass deception. My expertise in the field of geohazards geophysics, is given here on a pro-bono basis as part of my contribution to Mankind so that we need not live in fear of another man-made disaster.
One will also need to understand the economics of deep water oil production, global market manipulations and super-quick financial windfalls from predetermined “natural or accidental” disasters. Our (ongoing) investigations led us to connections with other Inside-Job disasters like 911, 311, 26 Dec quakes in 2003,2004 and 2006 just to name a few.
How did regulatory enforcement fail so badly? Gross negligence, cost cuttings and accidental mistakes were just the facade of an underlying sinister scheme. There is simply no excuse for the multiple blowout craters and gushing leaks over several tens of square miles on the seafloor. BP would have gone bankrupt in an instant once the world knew of the massive irreparable damage BP had done to the Gulf through their indiscriminate drilling activities. They wanted to short BP shares not kill it. Triggering a disaster was the easy part. Controlling the beast was another ball game altogether. BP had no idea how to kill the multi-head hydra monster unleashed from the deep. The easiest way out? “Fake and Confuse” strategy.
How to convince the world that the oil had ceased leaking from the Macondo reservoir?
The oldest trick in the world. If you can't make it, fake it. Using the “leaks on the riser” illustration enabled them to collapse the multiple leaks into one single leak at the shallowest well (A). Then when the time was right, they would do a “switcheroo” to well B. The gullible world audience would not notice the difference. They would even applaud the heroic battle. “A responsible global corporate kills the gushing beast”. That was the script until the late Matts Simmons (RIP) started to “pull the loose thread” from the flawed knitting. In his previous capacity, he served as energy adviser to U.S. President George W. Bush. He was, up until his death, a member of the National Petroleum Council and the Council on Foreign Relations. JP Wheeler was another of former Bush Administration adviser who was found dead in a dumspter on 2011 New Year Eve. Like Simmons, he too had to be killed for knowing too much.
The late Matts Simmons was killed days after their attempt to seal the third well (labelled as well BE) failed.
Contrary to BP's denials and Rtd Adm Thad Allen's incomprehensible explanations, Relief well C intercepted the rogue well at 18,000ft as early as the first week of July 2010. With an operational cost of 1 million USD per day, why would Relief Well C be “playing footsie” at less than 20ft from the rogue well and did not intercept for more than 2 months? It is like saying “I smoke marijuana but never inhaled”. BP could get away with such blatant lies because no one dared to question stupidity. Direct access to White House helped.
After multiple failures to stem the gushing flow and out of sheer frustration, an explosive device was detonated at around midnight (local time) on 1Aug 2010 in an attempt to bottom kill the gushing well. It was no coincidence an abnormal 3.0 mag shallow quake struck Louisiana at the same time. The epicentre of that rare shallow quake plots on the same NW-SE fault line which also ran through the “gas bubble” discharge noted on the evening of 22 April (1744 CDT). That shallow gas eruption was induced by an earlier shallow depth detonation within the same Macondo well. It makes perfect sense for a detonation at depth of 18,000ft (5.5km) bsl to trigger a 5 km deep quake more than 200 miles away. And a shallow explosion <6,000ft (1.8km) bsl to induce a shallow gas surge 50 miles away along the same fault line. You cannot get a better correlation than that.
Apparently, the 1st Aug bottom-kill attempt was not that successful. BP had to abort its scheduled “show killing of well A” in early August. The rogue well started spewing again. Incomprehensible announcements were made on the deferred well killing. The late Dr Manton was silenced with a 15-year jail sentence 5 days later, followed by the late Matts Simmons drowning in the bath tub incident and the late Senator Ted Stevens' plane crash, 2 days apart of each “accident”. The odds must be astronomical for each of these incidents to occur accidentally and independently of each other.
Miscalculations were probably at fault. Or was it Divine intervention? Both detonated events (22 April and 1Aug) did not yield the expected results. “Man proposes while God disposes” does sound sweet. After the anticipated massive oil spill failed to materialize on 20 April, they were under even more pressure to make it right (sounds familiar to BP's pledge?). They could not afford to take any more chances.
A disastrous gas blowout with no massive oil spill does not move global markets and oil prices. On the other hand, an anticipated mega oil spill that did not happen at the right time could spell financial ruins as huge bets had been placed to make the huge killings. The markets had to be caught by surprise. With mounting losses from a series of “failed-to-materialise” disasters, they had to make or break. Does the determination to cause a mega oil spill make any sense now?
The mega oil spill has other sinister agenda as well. A deceptive slow-killing cancerous genocide is more profitable and provoke less public outcry than an outright genocide. Depopulation agenda come to mind.
The detonated explosion on the evening of 22 April had to be powerful enough to breach the base cement plug to achieve their ultimate objective. No second chance. Too much was at stake. If you can predict the weather, the market is yours for the taking. Like a rigged horse race, a mega oil spill in the gulf had to happen to avoid financial ruins. If the Let-It-Happen-On-Purpose (LIHOP) did not work, they had to resort to Make It Happen On Purpose (MIHOP). But each backup action leaves its own trail of incriminating evidence. Investigators obviously did not seek to find.
The many financial bubbles (eg 2007 Sub-prime and Housing Bubbles) and the 2008 Global Financial Meltdown were no accident. So were the top hole blowout at 2200CDT April 20 and the more disastrous bottom hole blowout shortly after 1700 CDT April 22. Deception works best when the evidence are shown right under our noses. Many examples were given in part 1 of this series, The Farcical 3 Leaks On The Broken Riser Story.
Distorted truths are most dangerous when they appear to be the whole truth.
Deception fools no one if the distorted truths are not publicly disseminated. Hence the need for “independent witnesses” (another name for agents or schills) to spread these distorted truths. Any wonder BP spent 3 times than normal (>$100 millions) in the months following the outbreak of the disaster?
Every discrepancy is a window of opportunity to seek the truth. The truth will not falter despite the many spanners thrown at it. Followers to our articles would have known the number CoIntelpro operations used to disrupt our independent investigation. There has been useful insiders' information and tips as well. We have grown wiser to their deceptive tactics and mis-information. Our sincere apologies if some of the insiders' leads were not followed up promptly.
We received many leads on the timing of key events like the “Second Underwater Explosion” (SEU), sinking of the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) and discrepancies in the various logs (mud logs, US coast guards, well activity logs etc). Due to limited resources, various tasks had to be farmed out to volunteers. This article was prepared before we have received all the feedbacks. This jewel of discrepancies among the early responses to the blowout and rig fire is a last minute inclusion to this article.
Were the US Coast Guards notified of the explosion on DWH 3 hours before BP reported event at 21:49 CDT?
One keen investigator highlighted an apparent time discrepancy in some of the events found in the USCG log.

SECTOR RCVD GOODSAM CALL FROM THE M/V RAMBLING WRECK RELAYING COMMS REPORTING THAT THE RIG DWH IS ENGULF IN FIRE AND PERSONNEL ARE ABANDONING THE RIG.
Note: CDT time difference with Zulu time (denoted by Z in the USCG logs) was assumed to be -5 hours. We had to use our best discretion when no “z” was indicated. BP also had a complete blackout of independent sources of confirmation. Unfortunately we cannot reveal our sources and ingenious means of verifying the truth.
Item A at 202357Z Apr10 (18:57 CDT) was 3 hours 5 minutes earlier than the mayday distress call sent out from DWH. Item E at 210303Z Apr10 (22:03 CDT) apparently sent from a rig 25nm from DWH (Matterhorn MC243 operated by W&T offshore) was 11 minutes after DWH's mayday call at 21:52 CDT or 14 minutes after DWH was engulfed in flames from multiple explosions at 21:49 CDT. Nakika platform is nearer at less than 15nm but operated by BP. Item H 22:06 CDT was a call received from a good samaritan vessel in the vicinity (about 15 minutes away or less than 5 km with maximum speed of 10 knots) of DWH. The first USCG helo arrived at 23:22 CDT (or 1 hour 20 minutes after the distress call was picked up) according to BP's official report. Why was there a 4-minute delay between the blowout (21:45) and fire (2 explosions at 21:49) and another 3 minutes before Mayday call?
How did Anchorman know that all personnel abandoned rig 10 minutes after mayday call at 21:52 CDT at that time, 10 miles away? Why did it take more than 10 minutes for the Matterhorn platform to relay the distress call to D8? Why didn't the BP-operated Nakika platform pick up the distress call 15nm away and relay it drectly to BP or Transocean, under their Emergency Response Procedures (ERP)? It would presumably take less “fumbling time” than Matterhorn platform (which is still no excuse). Yet Anchorman, an independent witness could pick up the “event (@21:45)” 10 minutes before the mayday call; a full 20 minutes ahead of Matterhorn's distress alert.
The first public blog reporting on the DWH rig fire (by anchorman on Gcaptain.com) was 21:34 (-6 hours or 22:34 CDT) or 45 minutes after the official Mayday Call from DWH. Anchorman was just 10 miles away but was stuck on anchor. No reasons or explanation were given.
At 12:27am (1:27 CDT 21 April) 2nd posting by Anchorman:
We are 10 miles away, but we are stuck on an anchor and ccan not assist. This happened @ 2145. Ten minutes after the mayday, they abandoned ship and the flames were at least 200' tall. It's still raging and it's 0130 in the morning now. I called Transocean when it happened and they were not aware, but the Coast Guard just called them, I updated them. So, I gave them my assessment. Several vessels are conducting search patterns at this time. The head count on the rig was reported to be 129, but there has not been a hard count on the radio. We are going to the location within the hour. http://gcaptain.com/forum/offshore/4805-deepwater-horizon-transocean-oil-rig-fire.html
What is wrong with this first response scenario? More detailed analyzes would be coming out of Lambert's investigation later but at this preliminary stage, the conspicuous absence of both BP and Transocean was just too “loud” to miss. Why?
It is mandatory for BP and Transocean to have manned shore control stations / operation managers on 24/7 standby basis. Any mayday call from their own rig would have been picked up in a matter of seconds. So why would Transocean still be unaware at least 12 minutes after the mayday distress call was sent out. Never mind the developing trouble on the rig as early as 21:45 CDT when the assistant driller called the senior toolpusher to report that the well was blowing out. Like any expecting father, the operation managers at BP and Transocean shore control would be glued to the radio, closely following the operations in the final hours before DWH pulled out from a “strike well”. For BP and Transocean to be caught unaware of the impending troubles on DWH would be complete lunacy.
Were BP and Transocean caught sleeping on the job or was it part of the contrived plot to blow up DWH?
Were BP's and Transocean's 24/7 manned shore control stations sleeping on the job? Then what about BP-operated Nakika platform? Were they sleeping on the job too? Hardly. If you are contriving to blow up your own rig, you too would make a conscious effort to avoid being mentioned in any document that could be construed as a scripted plan, just in case it falls into the wrong hands. The conspicuous absence of BP and Transocean is a major flaw in the plot since in any accident on the rig, the owner-operator (Transocean) and the Client (BP) would be the first to be notified. Thus in the scripted plot, everyone else was aware of the fire except BP and Transocean as if to distance themselves from the “ACCIDENT”.
It is not known if Anchorman (a vessel captain working for Pacific Drilling) had “superman vision” to pierce through the darkness and steel walls, to be able to see and count all the personnel who had abandoned rig (jumping into the water or with life rafts). Yet for all his superman abilities, he was wrong on the 129 POB, “all had abandoned ship” and “drilling ship” information on his posting and could not pull off anchor 3 hours 42 minutes later. Why had all the investigations ignored Anchorman's eye-witness account of the incident?
Assuming Anchorman was an independent observer minding his own business 10 miles away from DWH, what was his vessel doing at anchor 10 miles from DWH? Was his vessel one of the passing good Samaritans mentioned in the “scripted plot”? If his vessel was anchored so close to DWH, there would have been radio contact prior to the blowout (accident) since vessels in the vicinity of any platform or semi-sub rigs would need to identify themselves as part of the security measures against untoward accidents or unwelcome activities. As an experienced skipper, he should have known the difference between a drilling ship and a semi-sub rig. The fact that he could report the burning vessel as “Deepwater Horizon” meant that he knew. So why the deliberate “abandon ship” instead of “abandon rig”? Then again how did he know the accident happened at 21:45 CDT and all the personnel had abandoned “ship 10 minutes after the mayday”. Mayday call was sent out only at 21:52 CDT. An independent witness could not have known such precise details, not at that time and certainly not in the darkness 10 miles away.
Anchorman posting on Gcaptain.com at 1:27 CDT (3 ½ hours later) wrote “I called Transocean when it happened and they were not aware, but the Coast Guard just called them, I updated them. So, I gave them my assessment.” In his first posting at 22:34 CDT, his exact words were “The Deepwater Horizon is on fire and the flames are 200 ft tall. All personnel have abandon ship.”
This is most surprising. Did he call Transocean shortly after 21:45 CDT the time of the blowout or after the mayday call was sent out at 21:52 CDT? Both would indicate Anchorman had prior knowledge of the blowout before it happened. If D8 was notified at 22:04 CDT, why were BP and Transocean still in the dark about the “Accident” on their own rig more than 12 minutes after the mayday call was sent out? Surely offshore regulations in the US cannot be less stringent than 3rd world countries.
Were BP and Transocean really sleeping on the job or was there a contrived plot to blow up DWH?
Does the phrase “crude corruption and oily business” come to mind?
