One of the most important lesson I learned from the BP Macondo blowout disaster was:
“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear” ~ Buddha.
In the months following the 20 April 2010 Macondo blowout, when the world in particular the residents of the Gulf was still oblivious to the crimes and frauds committed by BP; when hopes ran high that BP would have the financial resources and the Obama Administration the political will to see to it that “BP would make things right” and the “Gulf returned to its pristine condition before the disaster”, you could shout all the truth you want and it would still fall on deaf ears. In June 2010 my introduction a geoscience seminar paper was as follows:
Prediction is inherent in Geophysics, more so in geohazards geophysics. Without predictions, geohazards surveys are nothing more than hydrographic surveys. Yet geohazards predictions are often treated with disdain if the risk of geohazards is high. Many would prefer the risk of geohazards to be downplayed in order for the project or drilling to proceed smoothly as planned. In the event of an unlikely disaster, the “safe geohazards assessment” is always handy in absolving blame and financial responsibility. It is also easy to blame massive financial losses on geohazards which like all natural disasters are acceptable “force majeure”. The chain of human errors especially the erroneous geohazards prediction and interpretation leading to the disaster is often lost in the chaotic aftermath.
In essence, geohazards surveys serve as insurances against the risk of disaster, without which there can be no financial backing for the project concerned. But like all insurances, the insured needed to get a clean bill of health before being insured and that “health certificate” is the geohazards assessment report. Being commissioned by the insured (the Clients), it is easy to see where business loyalty lies and why the geohazards prediction failure rate is so high.
Sixteen months after the disaster, the truth of the disaster is still covered under layers of mud (deceit) and the 6 billion citizens of this planet are still denied justice. So what is new? For generations, the masses had been lied to and any new disasters (man-made, natural or made-to-happen-on-purpose) will similarly be covered up and twisted to benefit the powers in control. Will this Gulf Oil Spill disaster or the Japan Nuclear fallout disaster be any different from past disasters the world had experienced? Will we ever learn the painful lessons? By the time we smell the COREXIT, it will be already too late. Cover ups will only lead to more disasters in the future. Do we really want more disasters?
In the last six months, the oil mafia have tried every tricks in their sleeves to eliminate me from the face of this earth. By GOD's will I am still alive though there has been more than a dozen lives lost as collateral damages. Innocent lives lost or nearly lost through mistaken identity shooting / killing or just plain “in the wrong place at the wrong time”. How many of the dead corpses turning up in Singapore's reservoirs, waterways and other secluded locations were mistaken identity killing and how many were accidental eye witnesses? How do you explain the lack of eye-witnesses to the numerous murders happening in one of the most densely populated island in the world? That would be the topic for the forth coming article.
As proof of the gross injustice and the lopsidedness of the investigation into BP's crimes and frauds in this Gulf disaster, see the following video footage of the BOP; the smoking gun of the disaster and tell me there was nothing fishy. Bear in mind even the simple cleaning off the logo job under 5000ft of water could cost as much as USD100,000. But why was there a need to wipe off the logo and label if it was the original BOP stack? If the logo and company label was on a replaceable section of the BOP, could they not wipe them off while it was still on deck at 1/100th of the cost?
Sometimes it is the little oversights and overlooked mundane tasks that spoil the whole orchestrated BOP switch operation. There were also the “little” discrepancies here and there that did not quite fit into the symphony of deception.
For example, BP reportedly started the top kill on 26 May 2010, more than 1 month after the blowout. Okay, even if BP was given the benefit of doubt in pussyfooting, it still does not explain why there was a “dangling BOP” from 3 to 16 July 2010
when the world was mesmerized with the constantly gushing BOP stack on top of Well A from May till 15 July 2010 when the well was finally capped. BP had maintained that the BOP Stack could not be removed from the gushing well, for fear of escalating the oil spew. The damaged BOP stack was officially removed for the first time on 3 September 2010. Besides the biggest lie that BP drilled only one well, this would be the second biggest lie of the century in the oil industry.
Many industry's insiders were really surprised at this daring “poker game” gambit. If the BOP had been badly damaged as asserted by BP and as evident from the disastrous blowout, it served no purpose to keep the damaged BOP in place. If the expert drilling crew could not control the blowout, it usually means the well head, well annulus and the Formation around the blown well at the near seafloor zone are broken beyond repair. The BOP being the strongest would be the last to be damaged. But even if the BOP was not damaged beyond repair, it would still be pointless to keep the BOP on the broken well head. When a wellhead is broken beyond repair, the most logical procedure to kill the well is by intercepting it at the most strategic section (with reference to the geologic formation) well below the damaged zone. Any top kill would only make a bad situation worse as I had said back in July 2010 – the high risk of capping BP's gushing well from the top.
The illogical and incomprehensible maneuvers by BP in the aftermath of the blowout, had been viewed suspiciously by industry's experts as buying time and “muddling the pool” to mask their covert operation of setting up the second (fake) BOP on an undamaged wellhead which was Well A abandoned in mid February 2010 (see “Which well are they killing?” published on 1 Sept 2010). http://bklim.newsvine.com/_news/2010/09/01/5024700-which-well-are-they-killing
A novice in crime without political support and firepower would not have dared to pull such risky gamble; a technical ploy “full of holes”. Yet they did successfully in full naked view of 6 billions inhabitants of this earth. I was not entirely surprised that they went ahead with the charade. After their block buster success with 911, who could stop them?
What I was surprised was the willful blindness by the “respectable” investigators on these glaring discrepancies? It was from that point onwards that I lost all faith in the Oil Industry, in governing and regulating themselves in the interest of Mother Earth. How naïve I was all these years, thinking they did not know? Of course they knew of the safety frauds and violations; the unscrupulous business deals that kill silently hundreds if not thousands.
How could these “respectable and highly professionals” not see that the nakedness of the Emperor wearing nothing but BP's magical robes made of cloths woven from fine invisible golden threads? Even ordinary folks outside the industry could see and questioned the numerous ROV sightings of BOP at well B or close to it, at the third well location (S20BC) and several other locations in various poses. Shame on the so-called veteran experts at TOD for putting down those who questioned these ROV sightings. I reckon it is the duty of every oil company man to cover up for their company's mistakes. But to abet them in the murder of innocent lives? To think that the industry has stooped to this low, is totally beyond belief.
Engineers have begun the "top kill" maneuver aimed at stanching the gush of oil from a blown-out well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, BP and U.S. Coast Guard confirmed. The much-awaited procedure began at 1 p.m. Central Daylight Time, according to BP. The maneuver, which BP officials warned could take hours or days to complete, would attempt to overpower the upward flow of oil by pumping drilling fluid -- and eventually a cement mixture -- at high pressure down the well. Several hundred engineers in Houston have prepped for the effort for weeks
On 17 Aug 2010, in part 1 of the Ballistic analysis of the DWH-riser-wreck, I wrote:
Video footage of the faulty BOP on top of Well A was only widely available to the public from June onwards. In a video dated 4 June 2010, an apparent “Dispersant Ops” Rov showed the BOP at 61.8 ft above seabed level, at 221.5 ft WNW of Well A location. Figure 3d confirmed our suspicion that the BOP had been “busily travelling” around instead of being Static at Well A as we had been led to believe.
But how could one BOP stack be seen at so many places at any one time in the period beginning 20 April till at least the end of July 2010? If we piece all the little discrepancies together, there can only be the logical conclusions that:
The original BOP at the 3rd well (S20BC) was blown off on 22 April 2010 (second more powerful underground blowout) as asserted by the Late Matts Simmons. Some sources even say the “never to be mentioned” second explosion that brought the DWH down was intentionally set off by one of the ROVs. A floating DWH rig would incriminate the perpetrators of this MIHOP disaster.
BP secretly deployed another BOP stack (referred to as the FAKE BOP) at Well A, removed the broken riser on the original BOP and fixed on the the Fake BOP.
Any of the ROV videos during this “critical” remove and reattached riser operation period would incriminate BP. That is the main reason BP cannot release any of the video footage of the ROV at work before June 2010.
So this will mean there should be 3 BOP stacks altogether. First we have the Original BOP, then the FAKE BOP which was installed on well A in the aftermath of the blowout and retrieved on 3-4 September 2010 and the Replacement BOP which was eventually retrieved on 5 November 2010.
We should be able to adduce the evidence from the following videos 160-1 to 160-4. I strongly advice readers to download the following You-tube ROV videos before they are completely “wiped off” from their respective websites.
How do I know all these are true and accurate (if not in minute details at least the main story)? The proof is in the pudding. If I had been writing nonsense, would they have bothered to kill me along with the others from 24 Nov 2010 to July 2011?
Incidentally, my wife and I should have been murdered on 24 Nov 2008 with fatal head wounds, cuts and bruises from the relentless battering by 4 personnel armed with 2 feet long machetes. Who could survive all that slashing and bounce back less than a week later, if not for the help of GOD? Incidentally, the life threats from the Oil Mafia started on 20 April 2008. Extremely coincidental isn't it? The oil mafia paid shills would have jumped on me long ago, if these dates were not true.
There were serious attempts to eliminate me and my whole family in the first 6 months of 2011. Divine Guidance and of course the thousands of prayers around the world kept us safe. Unfortunately, in their desperate attempts to eliminate me, others were innocently poisoned or shot at. As with all covert murderous schemes, they cannot afford to have any eye-witnesses. In any case, the deaths of accidental eye-witnesses added to the confusion and planted misleading evidence. If all these sound familiar, it is. Look into all my past articles on the Art of Mass Deception practiced throughout the Gulf Disaster.
To understand the ROV video footage of the BOPs, see figures 160a to 160c. Forget the fine details of the BOP stack. Look at the well-head connector, the frames and general layout of the BOP stacks. Each BOP stack is different. Essentially if the BOP stack raised onboard the Helix Q4000 on 5 Sept is different from the BOP stack seen in the video of the original BOP in June 2010, then you know for sure the Presidential Commission and all investigation reports based on the FAKE BOP are fundamentally wrong. So now you know what I had been talking about since July last year and the reason they need to secure my silence. Since I cannot be bought, my silence can only be secured through my demise.
Lastly I wish to honour Bill Young, a former CIA agent living in Chiang Mai. He was murdered on 1 April 2011 in his home with a revolver in one hand and a cross in the other. I do not buy the suicide theory. How could the revolver and crucifix remained clutched in his hands after shooting himself? Like everything else, the revolver and crucifix were placed in his hands long after he was dead, to make it look like a suicide. He would rather die than betray GOD. God bless his soul. Amen.
An American missionary's son who became a top CIA Vietnam War-era hit-man in the jungles of Burma, Laos and Thailand has been found dead in his Chiang Mai home, a bullet in his head, a revolver in one hand and a crucifix in the other.

Video#160-2 of FAKE BOP. Uploaded by X2YeZCAMCNC on Jun 9, 2010
In this narrated clip the ROV (remotely operated vehicle) is using the wire brush hydraulic tool to believe it or not remove the company logo (Oil States International Inc.- FlexJoint) plastered on the side of a part at the top of the damaged BOP (blowout preventer). Weird I just said that a few hours ago when I saw them getting this tool out, while joking. Don't they have better things to do.

Video#160-4 of Replacement BOP being removed from the well-head at Well A on 5 Nov 2010. Could not believe the stark difference? How on earth could the world's most highly paid, highly qualified professionals miss this crucial evidence? As Bernie Madoff said from his prison interview; “They had to know. But the attitude was sort of, ‘If you’re doing something wrong, we don’t want to know.’” What was that word again?.... Willful Blindness.
