Back to School! Last week we failed to mention that the whole exercise of Big Petroleum (BP) and the Obama Administration in covering up and hiding how much oil has actually gushed from the Deep Water Horizon disaster (in our humble opinion) is to LIMIT the amount of DAMAGES Bloated Pigs (BP) will eventually have to pay: more oil "spilled" = more fines and damages. We hope you aren't bored with our incessant coverage of this but when it comes to an ECOLOGICAL DISASTER of THIS MAGNITUDE that will affect the Gulf Coast and the world's ecosystems for DECADES we're like a dog with a fresh hamhock bone! By most estimates the mile-deep well was spewing something like one Exxon Valdez every 3-4 DAYS for over three months. This is NOT trivial. So for Balls Popping (BP) and the gummint to claim "75% of the oil is gone" seems on its face a complete lie. And if you've been following our links you may know both have been actively buying "scientists" to support their claims to create this alternate-reality image (including Da Prez allegedly swimming "in the Gulf") as proscribed by the Corporopress stenographers. "No oil here! These aren't the droids you are looking for! Move on!" So we'll be short and point you to Slow Violence and the BP Coverups at CounterPunch, Confirmed: Corexit Still Being Sprayed in the Gulf at Washington's Blog, Uncovering the Lies That Are Sinking the Oil at t r u t h o u t and BP's Deep Secrets at From "Slow Violence" we get "contractor Steve, though that is not his real name" and he says, “It’s as if a nuclear apocalypse has gone off in the Gulf,” he said. “The media is not telling the truth. No one is telling the truth." STEVE? More... "As it happens, Steve knows a good deal about dispersants. Before coming to work on the oil spill, he worked as a contractor for Halliburton; he now works in the Gulf for a company dealing with environmental toxicity and health hazards." And "This also means that if anyone sues BP for health problems caused by toxic exposure to oil or chemicals, CTEH will be the expert witness called in on BP’s behalf." This is grim. More under the heading "The Corexit Cover-up"... The main ingredient in Corexit is 2-Butoxyethenol, which is toxic to blood, kidneys, liver and the central nervous system, also causing cancer, birth defects. Corexit is mutagenic for bacteria, huge amounts of which live in the Gulf of Mexico. Corexit ruptures red blood cells and accumulates as it moves up the food chain. The EPA, reluctant at first to release data, eventually conceded that Corexit is LETHAL for 50% of any group of test animals that comes in contact with it. Even the Department of Transportation classifies Corexit as Class 6.1: Poisonous Material” for transportation purposes. But never mind THAT! We have SHINY OBJECTS to discuss on the Sunday Corporo-Funnies! Like GLAN BECK discussing his DESECRATION of the Lincoln Memorial on the Anniversary of Dr. King's "I have a dream" speech on Fake News (see DU nmbluesky MLK VS GLENN BECK). Meanwhile Face the Bob follows the SHINY OBJECT OF THE WEEK State Primaries with Florida's KENDRICK MEEK and Alaska's JOE MILLER (a generic name if ever ther was one!) and Meet the David does a navel exercise in "Katrina: Five Years Later". Following suit is State of the Candy with MEEK and ex-GOP-now-Independent CHARLIE CRIST (see Ring of Fire with John Nichols of The Nation about the GOP destroying their "moderates"). This Christianne goes BACK TO SCHOOL to discuss the U.S. Education system "reform" with ED SEC ARNE DUNCAN on how the "private sector" can "fix" the public school system. This, and "charter schools" of course, are the code words for breaking the Teachers Unions and creating a have/have-not two-tiered education system while making "education" corporations HUGE money on taxpayers' dime. See The Shock Doctrine in Action in New Orleans from NAOMI KLEIN from 2007 for how the Disaster Capitalists began this push in NOLA and more recently from OpenLeft How Content Standards Enable Corporate Takeover of Public Education plus Is Arne Duncan clinically a paranoid schizophrenic? from The Daily Censored. Of course your BTV Alerts avoid the Shiny Object Syndrome mostly, except to point out the hippocracy of it all and provide REAL information and news! The Brick TeeVee Crew thought they had some Giant Super-Weeds in our garden so we quickly covered them in plastic then removed them because "A single weed plant can produce 450 000 seeds". Yikes! Save some seeds from your garden's crop this year so you might still have a crop next year without having to buy GMO Roundup-Ready seeds from Monsanto! (We may get sued by Monsanto for using their copyrighted GMO-seed name as it mysteriously showed up here, perhaps by blowing on the winds of the tubes of the internets! HA!) Have a great week and THROW BRICKS at GLAN BECK and all his dumbass minions and morans!

HELP BRADLEY MANNING Julian Assange, wikileaks: Asked about Mr. Manning, Mr. Assange said: "There is no allegation as far as we can determine" that the documents posted on WikiLeaks Sunday are "connected to Bradley Manning." He said WikiLeaks has nonetheless "committed funds" to Pfc. Manning's legal defense, offering his military-appointed legal team money in case it wants to hire civilian counsel. (WSJ)
Offshore Drilling is Not The Answer: Restore the Moratorium
from Surfrider Foundation (h/t jen)
The tragic and devastating oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is a stark reminder that offshore oil drilling is not the answer.
The Deepwater Horizon rig that exploded and sank has spilled millions of gallons of oil into the ecologically rich waters in the Gulf of Mexico and continues to gush 210,000 gallons of oil into the sea every day. The spill remains unabated and now has the potential to become one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history. The unfolding catastrophe clearly illustrates that offshore drilling is not safe and new technology is not fool proof.
Tell the Obama Administration new drilling is NOT THE ANSWER. Our coasts and the economy they support cannot withstand anymore!
We are reminded why the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara and the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill led to state and federal moratoriums on offshore oil drilling. The tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico makes it clear that it is time once again time to restore those moratoriums.

Kennedy, Jr. discusses how the coal industry managed to completely capture the government with Jeff Goodell, a contributing editor to Rolling Stone magazine, and author of the new book “How to Cool the Planet: Geo Engineering and the Audacious Quest to Fix Earth’s Climate.”

    Wikileaks: CIA Red Cell Memorandum on US ‘Exporting Terrorism’ Stacy summary: The latest wikileaks release. Your thoughts?
    Floods and ‘Freak’ Weather Have NOTHING To Do With Economy or Finance, Keep Moving On, Nothing to See Here by stacyherbert Beware those claiming that major weather disasters like the Moscow heatwaves and fires or the Pakistan floods have nothing to do with the economy, markets or finance. Moscow’s July and August weather has not only impacted, for example, the bond market, but also the wheat market. The floods in Pakistan have not only dislocated millions of people and killed 1600, but have also caused great dislocation in agricultural markets where it has caused inflation in prices of local agricultural goods and is expected to cost the nation up to 10% of GDP. And now it has forced the nation to go to the IMF and plead for restructuring; the IMF is central to the global matrix of ne0-liberal finance so this action, too, will cause unknown knock on effects. Many have an ideology that necessitates weather events NOT be reported on, but these two events will have knock on economic, market and geo-political effects for years to come. Black them out of your memory if you must, but it doesn’t mean the costs will disappear. READ Pakistan seeks IMF loan restructuring @ BBC.
    Debunking Propaganda from the Big Carbon Taxers & Exposing the Big Oil Welfare Cheats Stacy summary: Scott Horton debunks the propaganda being spewed from the neo-conservatives who operate the most expensive welfare operation ever devised by man, financed through the highest carbon taxes anywhere in the world. Two trillion dollars per year alone in the US is collected in tax revenue, half of it goes directly to the military to secure oil reserves around the world, including next those of Iran (videos at post!).

    • KEISER REPORT [KR72] Keiser Report – Markets! Finance! Arctic Arms Race! Stacy summary: We look at the scandals of security firms by day, terrorists by night and whether or not Erik Prince ‘needs a break from America,’ or broke America. In the second half of the show, Max talks to Paul McLeary, a journalist specializing in defense, intelligence and military, about the arms race in the Arctic..

    Listen at Antiwar Radio
    Glenn Greenwald August 26, 2010 Glenn Greenwald, blogger and former constitutional lawyer, discusses the NYC anti-mosque/anti-Islam rally sponsored by neocon crazy Frank Gaffney (scroll down to update III), how the public’s fear of an Islamic bogeyman must be constantly stoked to justify a U.S. foreign policy of war and aggression, how Israel benefits from increasing anti-Islam bigotry in the U.S. and the most suppressed truth in American political discourse: that U.S. policy and behavior generate grievances that inspire acts of terrorism – including 9/11.

    Philip Giraldi August 25, 2010 Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi discusses recent Mossad intelligence operations in America based out of the Israel mission to the U.N. in New York , the one-way street intelligence sharing between the CIA and Israel, why FBI and DOJ espionage investigations never go anywhere and the evidence that Israeli agents in America had foreknowledge of 9/11. LISTEN Philip Giraldi (mp3) 26:08
    Hannah Gurman August 27, 2010. Hannah Gurman, author of the article “The Iraq withdrawal: An Orwellian success,” discusses the U.S. deliberations on Iraq’s future that fail to ask what Iraqis want, measuring the outcome of war in terms of “success” rather than victory or defeat, how Iraq’s inability to form a parliament is delaying the approval of lucrative oil contracts and why the Sons of Iraq who were never integrated into the army are returning to the insurgency. LISTEN Hannah Gurmanr (mp3) 23:21
    Cindy Sheehan August 27, 2010. Peace activist Cindy Sheehan discusses the Iraq War’s continuation even after the withdrawal of all “combat” troops, the antiwar movement mesmerized by “hopenosis” and the 75th anniversary edition of Major General Smedley Butler’s War is a Racket with a forward by Sheehan.
