Never underestimate the White House to further a crisis. Who planted those tar balls? Rahmbo's minions?

This in regards to Texas tarballs...
Lab tests indicate that most of the tar balls that washed up on Texas shores over the Fourth of July weekend were not related to the April 20 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Test results on tar balls from the Bolivar Peninsula and an east Galveston beach came back negative for relation to the Deepwater spill, said Lionel Bryant, with the Coast Guard in Texas.
Preliminary lab results had indicated that the tar balls were related to the oil spill, but further testing came back negative, Bryant said.
This time of year, natural seeps of oil wash up on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Last weekend's tar balls could have been pushed in from recent tropical storms. Tar balls were also collected off of McFaddin Beach, east of the Bolivar Peninsula, which came back positive.
Over the past two days, tar balls washed up on Crystal Beach off the Bolivar Peninsula, and south of the Peninsula on Galveston Beach. Samples are still being tested.
"It's not a catastrophe," Bryant said. "We're going to get out there and clean it up, regardless of what the source is."

Some are from the spill, some are not. Some tested positive, some tested positive, then negative, some still to be tested. What a CROCK! This is likely true for Florida as well. Who the HELL do they think they are kidding?

There are many geologists right now that believe there are cracks in the sea bed caused by the drilling explosion.
These cracks are leaking "substances".

If the tar balls, asphalt slabs and P-butter substances washing up on the beaches is not from Bp, but the timeline puts them in the water at the same time as the explosion, then they may just as well come from these cracks.

BP adnd the govt, are hiding these cracks from the public.

I've also heard some things to that effect. Specifically, not just a major tsunami potential triggered by undersea landslide (due to oil cavity collapse) or ocean floor collapse (cracks)--but something involving the spreading (particularly westward) of GOM-connected fault-line. Unfortunately researching the internet does take some time.

Yes, there's ways of identifying any crude oil sample--including age or how geologically deep it's origin.

I guess the real question is, why are they hiding this?

What they aren't telling you:
There is a huge methane gas bubble, upwards of 15-20 miles in diameter forming around the well site. It is said to have risen 10-12 feet in height. There are fissures around the well site as well. Since the core of the well site is another 3 miles down from the sea bed...if salt water hits that magma, the resultant reaction will be like a volcanic Mount Saint Helen's. Translation? A tsunami of epic proportions.
What they aren't telling you is the psi done there is close to 100,000. Any and all BOP devices won't work with those pressures.
What they aren't telling you as well is there are covert plans to evacuate upwards of 20 million people to avoid all the toxic gases...benzene, methane, hydrogen sulfide and other stuff.

I really don't believe they will plan an evacuation.

Cannot be done---look at Rita.

Too expensive----you see now how they avoid spending money on this catastrophe as it is.

Do I think they will keep us in harms way on purpose-----yes.

Do I trust the govt to what is best for me--NO

I'm hearing more and more how the relief wells will not work due to losing a pipe from the shaft in the explosion and the entegrity of the existing pipes going on 4 months.

It's all a dog and pony show....And they decide to nuke it, we all better get notice!

What they aren't telling you (continued):
Remember those FEMA trailers laced with formaldehyde? They're back!!!
Peter Sunderland, former head of BP, Chairman of Goldman Sachs International, Tri-lateralist, Head of the Bilderberg steering committee and special advisor to the Holy See (the Vatican).
Goldman Sachs unloaded 44 million shares of BP...weeks before the well explosion.
And...no one seems to know the true identities of that crew on the Transocean rig the day it exploded.

Yes, BP, Goldman Sachs all unloaded prior to the blast. BP, buys Halliburton, Haliburton buys boots and coots, and Nalco (maker of corexit).

Connect the dots.

BP funded some of Obama's campaign.
Obamas' BP stock was also unloaded prior to blast.

And they thought Martha was a criminal!

I use to think that for any politician to get to the top of their national "power totem pole"--he or she had to be just a sociopath. Well, I'm beginning to now truely realize that it's only those that are absolutely pathologically psychopathic, that are allowed to achieve their assigned political heap top. It's the middling political rank 'n file that fall into the "sociopath" classification (ie: just corrupt self-aggrandizing and cold-calculating "rubber-stampers").

Two more "governance" things I want to comment on:

First, regardless of what inappropriately hidden catastrophic potential lies beneath the Gulf of Mexico--the public DOES NOT deserve the manufactured BP Deepwater Horizon mega environmental disaster.

Very likely, for reasons of economics, increased police-state control and DEPOPULATION--the U.S. Federal government will only engage in "for-show" very limited, controlled, in-effectual enforced evacuations. In its present behavior it is already giving STRONG indications that it just wants a large population number (10 or more million) to just chronically sicken and prematurely die--and a large part of the population is tacitly subconsciously going along with the hidden intent.

I agree, there are forces at work here to clear out the gulf, what the ultimate goal is I'm not sure.
Obama has already taken away so many of our constitutional rights during this spill meanwhile giving the illegal aliens more rights. It confuses me as an American.

If confuses me that America is systematically allowing it's rights to be taken away, and allow biological warfare in the gulf while America is not even defending itself against the terrorist.
