Pragmatist, sell out, or triangulator? You decide.
I've decided that either Obama has an evil twin somewhere, or he is schizoid. He has mastered the arts of speaking out of both sides of his mouth, dissimulation, and not walking his talk.
"The capping stack, staged on the vessel M/V Fennica, is now in the region and capable of being deployed within 24 hours," the BSEE statement said.
* Picture, if you will, a blowout similar to BP in the Gulf, but in a howling gale in the Arctic! The capping stack can be deployed within 24 hours, assuming that the Fennica can get there and the seas aren't too bad to deploy the device. Couple this with, perhaps, a damaged and sinking drilling platform, damaged by heavy ice and high winds.
* sHell and Øbama may look on this as a minor setback in the profit side of the ledger, but I see disaster for the Arctic.
* I also wonder how many taxpayer million$ or billion$ will be paid to sHell to make up their losses.
* And people still have a problem figuring out who (or what) actually runs this country and most of the world?
A complete lack of audacity, I'd say. Unless there is an audacity in facing a challenge and doing so little about it.
This reeks of coercion
Actually way too much audacity. He had the unmitigated gall to say in a recent interview that he wished he could run for president because, he said, he was sure he could win,
Ha! Does anyone think that the fate of arctic drilling rests in the hands of Obama? (as much as as I dislike him) Look on a world map. The US controls less than a tenth of the arctic. Countries like Russia and Canada control over 70 percent. Tell you anything?
Putrid little shit, whatever his motivation.
If he's coerced, he shouldn't have run for President. He's far worse than useless, and has been since his election.
Yea and he just gave the other nine tenths the go ahead to rush towards the pole all insatiable like. Even though, Norway, Russia, and I'm sure Canada and China have all been "exploring" the reserves for some time now, we all know it's not happening until America is doing it.
I dunno. If the most powerful, unscrupulous, greedy government on earth (the
US Fourth Reich) were to ban drilling on humanitarian and ecological grounds, don't you think that that might at least give pause to the rest of them?
So, the "Great Betrayer" has yet again put corporate profits, potential catastrophe and exploitation before environmental protection, a president of pathetic ignorance, who's understanding of The Wild extends only as far as a golf course. The same corporate-whore that hired the odious Ken Salazar as Interior Sec. and brought us the Deep Water Horizon disaster, will Sally Jewell do any different in the Arctic? Will sonic switches and other critical safety measures be mandated, or will the "industry" have final say? After an Arctic spill will almost 2 million gallons of "dispersant" poison (worse than the oil) be allowed like in the Gulf? The rape of Mother Earth and extinction of Her creatures only accelerates under the "development" and "growth" Vulture Capitalist psychosis!
Obama's tenure has been very like Clinton's, following RepubliCons to the right, squandering a mandate for change and scatter a strong base. Instead Obama supported corporate-friendly wage and interest usury/slavery, hired Clinton's Rubinite financial de-regulation parasites, fostered the health "care" reform scam, the "global trade" scam, more offshoring jobs & hiding corporate profits, unregulated chemical poisons by the millions of tons, wholesale pollution, exploitation and extinction, war and police-state/security-state abuses and all the other betrayals of progressive, civilian priorities and investment in non-poisonous sustainability, etc, etc, and now supports/empowers more fossil-fuel exploitation for private profit. An utter failure and corporate shill I can find little other than contempt for. With corporate DINO's, who needs RepubliCons? Pathetic!
Why would you allow Shell Oil into my State, in OUR Arctic as being part of the commons of America- How could you have the audacity to allow these Vultures to drill there with out demanding that they clean up that Goddamned mess they made of the Niger Delta and the numerous other filthy, toxic, irresponsible operations they have perpetrated against this Earth and it's people-
Why can't you become A responsible adult and make these people mitigate all of the damage elsewhere before you would trust them to destroy the pristine environment of the Arctic?
This is piss poor leadership and you are leaving one shitty Legacy for History to remember you by- Grow up and become responsible!!!!
I share your anger and disgust.
Once again, Obama is on the wrong side of an issue.
Also remember the execution of Niger-Delta Ogoni activist Ken Saro-Wiwa that RDShell had (at least) a major hand in! Raping the environment and polluting the lands of the Ogoni for corporate profits was all they cared about, and they got the corrupt Nigerian authorities and military to execute Ken! Millions paid in "compensation" by RDShell for the elimination/murder of Ken Sara-Wiwa and his opposition to pollution and exploitation of Ogoni tribal lands without giving the Ogoni anything, was just the cost of RDShell doing business!
How much did the the death industry RDShell pay to Obama&Co? How much will they pay for pollution of the Arctic as the "cost of doing business!?
Well, the last time I checked, the Rothschild Dynasty owns controlling interest in Shell and at least half of the Worlds Gold supply and damn nearly ALL major Central Money Banks on this Planet- Does that tell anyone who Obama really works for? I am not Anti-Semite or even at all anti Jewish-I am ANTI-ZIONIST-
List of Banks owned by the Jewish Rothschild family
*Posted on September 2, 2013 by European Independent Media Centre
"When it is pointed out that the Zionist Jews run the world, some people will scoff, and accuse you of being a conspiracy theorist. They often resort to using the communist term of “Nazi”, proving their lower IQ and in-ability to think for themselves beyond the narrow spectrum of the Jewish owned media".
"Perhaps the fact that our Zionist governments, in line with their Zionist Jewish masters have ensured that our people have been brainwashed since birth via the state education systems that is compulsory explains their narrow mindedness.
What should be pointed out to these people is that our polititians are in the pockets of the bankers, which is proved by the fact that whenever there is a financial crash, our politicians, instead of holding them accountable, bail them out, using OUR hard earned tax money. The bankers wreck our economy by making massive apparent mistakes, making US suffer and then our governments use OUR money to bail the multimillionaire bankers out. Who are these bankers?
The Jews own the media, and our governments need the media to lie for them and manipulate the ordinary man.
They also need the bankers, because the bankers have the money to arm nations (and they do), to run election campaigns and to buy politicians.
They are so powerful that the Zionist bankers decide who is to be elected as president or prime minister. Who is the choice for next prime minister of Britain? David Cameron or “Red Ed” Milliband, Both Zionist JEWS.
So who are these bankers?
Here is a quote from Meyer Rothschild, of the Jewish banking cartel known as the Rothschilds:
“Give me control over a nations currency, and I care not who makes its laws” – Baron M.A. Rothschild
And here is a list of the banks that they own:

It can no longer be called a conspiracy theory, when you look at the cold hard facts.
*****FACT TO REMEMBER:
IF THE WESTERN MEDIA HAD ITS PRIORITIES IN ORDER AND ACTUALLY INFORMED, EDUCATED AND UPLIFTED THE MASSES INSTEAD OF SHILLING FOR A GLOBAL EMPIRE OF ENDLESS WARS, OUTRAGEOUS ECONOMIC INEQUALITY, AND DEEPENING DEVASTATION OF NATURE AND THE ANIMAL WORLD, HORRORS LIKE THESE WOULD HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED MANY YEARS, PERHAPS DECADES AGO. EVERY SINGLE DAY SOCIAL BACKWARDNESS COLLECTS ITS OWN INNUMERABLE VICTIMS.
If you read my comments re Vulture Capitalism, Zionism and Zionists, endless war, billions of people used as wage and interest slaves, you will see I am in agreement that the Uber-Wealthy and Zionism is a threat to all, and I am also neither an "anti-Semite", nor anti-Jewish. Those terms as well as "self-hating Jew", and others are used interchangeably as needed by Zionist/Israeli/financial terrorists/capitalist vultures to mask their usury, racism, ethnic cleansing, and subversion of governments, societies and politics to further their own greed and power........
Tricky people, these Zionists-
I have always tried my best to make it clear that I am not against the truly gifted Jewish Race- They were always in the forefront of the battle for Labor and Civil Rights in this Country- We owe them much-
But the Dynasty I peak of above has acquired far to much Power in this World and has used it in A reckless and non human way- They could do so much for humanity but that won't be the case-
The amount of poverty just One Billionaire leaves in his wake is totally unacceptable- No one deserves or needs to be this wealthy- Total Bullshit....
This Dynasty has the Wealth and Power to at least try to save this planet and the human race- I truly wish they would use it wisely....
