Report: White House altered drilling safety report

By The Associated Press
Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

The Interior Department's inspector general says the White House edited a drilling safety report in a way that made it falsely appear that scientists and experts supported the idea of the administration's six-month ban on new drilling.

The inspector general says the editing changes resulted "in the implication that the moratorium recommendation had been peer reviewed." But it hadn't been. The scientists were only asked to review new safety measures for offshore drilling.

The inspector general's report, which was originally requested by Louisiana Sen. David Vitter and Rep. Steve Scalise in June, said the administration did not violate federal rules because the executive summary did not say the experts approved the recommendations and the department offered a formal apology and had publicly clarified the nature of the expert review.

Louisiana Rep. Bill Cassidy, a Republican, said in a statement that the investigation proved "that the blanket drilling moratorium was driven by a politics and not by science."

"Candidate Obama promised that he would guided by science, not ideology," Cassidy said. Cassidy said if that were true thousands of jobs and billions in economic activity would have been preserved on the Gulf coast.

The Web site Politico was first to report the inspector general's findings. The Associated Press on Wednesday obtained a copy of the report, which has not been publicly released.

John Boehner to fly commercial as speaker

By SIMMI AUJLA
11/10/10

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Wednesday he intends to take commercial flights home when he moves up to speaker in the new Congress.

“Over the last 20 years, I have flown back and forth to my district on commercial aircraft, and I am going to continue to do that,” he told reporters.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, took heat in 2007 when she requested an Air Force jet that could fly nonstop back to her congressional district in California.

Her Republican predecessor from Illinois, Denny Hastert, had begun using an Air Force jet as speaker because of the increased security after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

A Boehner aide said the congressman, who's the presumed new speaker now that Republicans will control the House in the new Congress, had checked with security officials, who have signed off on his travel plans.

"There was no intent to mislead the public," said Kendra Barkoff, a spokeswoman for Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who also recommended in the May 27 safety report that a moratorium be placed on deepwater oil and gas exploration. "The decision to impose a temporary moratorium on deepwater drilling was made by the secretary, following consultation with colleagues including the White House."

Everything Obama does is intended to mislead the public.

But but but....

Shortly after taking office in 2009, Obama committed $10 BILLION US taxpayer dollars to Brazil's PetroBras for their latest off-shore drilling project off Brazil's coast -- 14,000 feet deep (in contrast to Horizon's 5,000 ft). This, when Petrobas earns $12 billion in annual profits. Not incoincidentally, billionaire George Soros (who's stated goal is "to take down the American economy"), invested $637 million in PetroBras two days after Obama took office.
.
.
Obama's web of collusion, cronyism, and corruption....

Obama was a board member of the George George Soros-founded Joyce Foundation, which started the far left "Center for American Progress" (CAP) outfit, which Obama also funded, along with MediaMatters, the far-left outfit that funds leftist bloggers (also cofounded by Hillary Clinton). CAP directs Obama's marxist agenda, and was the architect of the $862 billion Stimulus bill, which was outsourced to the Apollo Alliance (another cadre of leftwing radicals based in DC). WH advisor Valerie Jarrett remains on the board of Joyce, where which Obama funneled money to the brother of his fellow Annenberg Project board member, Bill Ayers.

Obama was also involved in the creation of CCX (the Chicago Climate Exchange)-- and the recipient of a TRUST FUND -- expected to gross $10 TRILLION per year if cap & trade passes. London-based GIM (Generation Investment Management) is the 5th largest shareholder of CCX, and was founded by Al Gore and a slew of Goldman execs.

The alliances and web of corruption, cronyism, collusion, and thuggery goes much, much deeper, however, including the associations and alliances of Obama, Soros, Gore, Raines, Podesta, Jarret, Goldman, GIM, and CCX. It's no accident that Obama's cabinet and radical czar contingent is loaded with former Goldman execs and lobbyists.

Razors Edge made two brief topix posts on this recently, a MUST-READ....

And this post, more on Fannie and Freddie cronyism and Fannie CEO Raines's Cap & Trade patents....
http://www.topix.com/forum/us/politics/T50ESI...

And of course not only have Obama and the democrats pledged "unlimited funding" to Fannie and Freddie (they who, along with the dems created the housing meltdown and are now $100 billion in the red), they omitted them from their "financial reform" (aka marxist control and payoff) bill.

Who were the top recipients of Fannie Mae's money? The top three were:
- Chris Dodd (D-CT),
- Barack Obama (D-IL),
- and John Kerry (D-MA).

And where are these Fannie Mae executives now?
- Franklin Raines ($90 million in compensation): Economic Adviser to Barack Obama
- Jamie Gorelick ($26 million): Major Democratic Fundraiser
- James Johnson ($21 million): Adviser to Barack Obama

Obama -- via his CCX trust fund -- stands to make untold millions if cap and trade passes. These are the FACTS. It's time to expose and impeach the Omarxist thug and his band of crooks.
