Military Op & Media Blackout in Grand Isle, LA

Friday, June 11, 2010
From an email:

This comes from what a documentary filmmaker, James Fox, is observing from his current location in Grand Isle, LA. The link to an audio interview with him is below.

June 8, 2010

Lock-down on the Gulf

From a source:

“IMPORTANT!!!!!!!Hello i just got this mp3 interview with James Fox (i kinow what i saw en into the blue), done by the veritasshow today (this was the text that was posted with it by Mel Fabregas..)”— a source.

["A few minutes ago, I conducted a short interview with documentary filmmaker, James Fox. He is presently in Grand Isle, Louisiana. The closest location to the Gulf oil spill. Before I spoke to James I received a few unsubstantiated reports that I put on the side.

What I'm about to share with you is extremely important. There is an absolute MEDIA BLACKOUT in the area. People are being arrested everywhere. Hotels in a 70-mile radius are completely sold out, yet, you don't see any vans or reporters filming. It's as if the entire area was under siege.

James Fox has witnessed this and he basically just arrived. He says he saw multiple Chevron helicopters flying. He has not seen any military activity. It's as if the oil companies had taken over. James expected to rent a plane to fly over it and that is not possible. The area above the oil spill is now a NO-FLY-ZONE. He will be there for two weeks.

I am issuing this bulleting because James Fox's name needs to be out in the public, as there is a possibility that he will be arrested. I have plans to talk to the Grand Isle's Police Department to get further clarification regarding these arrests, since James people don't even know who is conducting these arrests. James had the opportunity to talk to the son of one of the cleanup workers (former fisherman) and he told him no one is talking. He did say that no one is being told the extent of this disaster. It is much bigger than what is being reported.

The government is NOT IN CONTROL. The ones exercising all influence are the oil companies. Where is our FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT? I will be posting my interview with James at the forum shortly. When I called him I wanted to remain optimistic and felt people were exaggerating or simply fear mongering. After my conversation with James I can categorically say that my level of concern has risen to unprecedented levels and now I'm putting more credence to the reports I'm receiving.]— Mel Fabregas reporting

have you folks on this site ever thought that if that oil well was sealed of and the pipe in the ground had a fewnesses in it at the couplings what would happen?? or that BP knows that they have a damaged pipe in that well?? If capped the pressure could blow that pipe out of the ground or the oil could come out of the pie at it weak points and cause an even worse probled. If that happens there will be an even worse oil leak.

A good plummer could fix it. Call one. That is unless BP knows that it has damage below the bottom ground surface and completely cutting the flow off would cause a bigger leak and release more oil into the GULF.

Representative Barton of Texas fame calls that 20 billion dollars from BP for the Gulf damage to pay the injured parties a slush fund and does not like it or the way OBAMA got the money for the people of the GULF. Another REPUBLICAN DISLIKING OBAMA. Guess he never thought about the people needing that money who lost their livelyhood from that leaky oil well.

Oh please no! Not yet! And leave it to our Government to handle it? There is plenty of time to address criminal liability, but for now the focus should be on fixing the leak and cleaning up the mess, and since BP created the problem, they should not be relieved of fixing it.

I can't imagine the execs doing much of anything except stonewalling the media and the US govt. And getting head from Michelle Barfly Bachmann and the Texas Politicians. Maybe their engineers could do something. Of course squeaky Palin has the answers in the palm of her hand.
