Shiny Object of the Week! Right up there with the Kennedy Assassination, the Gulf of Tonkin, September 11th, and Iraq's "Weapons of Mass Destruction" we now have the "Deepwater Horizon Disappearing Oil"! Last Tuesday Reuters reported Scientists raise queries about Gulf oil left behind: In one of the reports, researchers at the University of Georgia said about three-quarters of the oil from BP's blown-out Macondo well was still lurking below the surface of the Gulf and may pose a threat to the ecosystem. Charles Hopkinson, who helped lead the investigation, said up to 79 percent of the 4.1 million barrels of oil that gushed from the broken well and were not captured directly at the wellhead remained in the Gulf. The report was based on an analysis of government estimates released on August 2 that Hopkinson said had been widely misinterpreted as meaning that 75 percent of the oil spewed by the well had either evaporated, dissolved or been otherwise contained, leaving only about 25 percent. And GuardianUK reports in BP oil spill: scientists find giant plume of droplets 'missed' by official account Scientists have mapped a 22-mile plume of oil droplets from BP's rogue well in the depths of the Gulf of Mexico, providing the strongest evidence yet of the fate of the crude that spewed into the sea for months...."These results indicate that efforts to book-keep where the oil went must now include this plume," said Christopher Reddy one of the members of the team from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute....The study reinforces earlier reports from research voyages led by scientists from the University of Georgia and Texas A&M University who detected the presence of deepwater plumes of oil....According to their findings the deepwater plume measures 22 miles long, 1.2 miles wide and 650 feet high....Ian MacDonald, an oceanographer at Florida State University, said the White House accounting for the oil is misleading and that only 10% of the oil that spewed into the Gulf has been removed from the ocean. Do check out Washington's Blog for a very disturbing item Corexit Is Being Sprayed at Night, Even Now (According to BP Vessel of Opportunity Workers and Others) which links to Dahr Jamail's item in t r u t h o u t Uncovering the Lies That Are Sinking the Oil. Washington's Blog also notes FDA Not Testing Gulf Seafood for Mercury, Arsenic or Other Heavy Metals Because "We Do Not Expect to See an Increase Based on this Spill". Gimme that Fillet-O-Fish! YUM! If you need even more info check out Mac McClelland at Mother Jones. However NONE of this will be discussed on the Sunday Bobblehead shows since they have other SHINY OBJECTS for you to look at, like the "Ground Zero Mosque" and that pesky "conflict" in Afghanistan. This Amanpour leads the parade with an "EXCLUSIVE" interview with Afghanistan's Puppet President HAMID KARZAI, followed by a discussion of the (you guessed it) "Ground Zero Mosque". Look for ROBERT RIECH on the roundtable where he brings up his latest, Corporate Rotten Eggs. Face the Bob gets General RAY ODIERNO and a tape of Katie Couric with General DAVID PATREUS while Meet the David gets MITCH MCCONNEL and Mr. Tea Bagger himself DICK ARMEY followed by more "Professional Right" bobbleheads. 60 Minutes has a double length segment "THE BLOWOUT" about what really happened on the Deepwater Horizon rig the night it exploded. Good item! State of the Candy goes all-military with ODIERNO, Gen. RICHARD MEYERS (ret.), former CENTCOM Adm BILL FALLON (ret.) plus her own sit-down with KARZAI and HOWARD DEAN on the "Ground Zero Mosque" SHINY OBJECT. Good brick targets are LINDSEY GRAHAM on FTN and JUDY WOODRUFF in the This Week panel. Lastly Governor ROD BLAGOJEVICH tells all on Fake News! Get your morning popcorn out for that one! Of course you can check out our regular features below for some news you can really use. Lots to go through so get busy! And you might want to skip those EGGS for breakfast this morning too unless you have your own laying hens in the back yard! The Brick TeeVee Crew has been taking it easy in the sweltering August heat, occasionally weeding the garden between adult beverages. We finally got some good soaking rain on Saturday (like ALL DAY) and the temps seem to be moderating going into next week so we may have to actually run the lawn mower. Have a great week and watch out for SHINY OBJECTS on yer corporo-teevee!

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)

The moderator of the Frontline talk just asked Assange whether he’d be arrested if he went to the U.S. now. “That’s what I’m told,” Assange replied.

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.

  • This Week (ABC) with Christiane Amanpour
    Fact Checking ABC's "This Week" at NPR "On the Media" - Jake Tapper, interim host of ABC's "This Week," liked the idea of fact-checking his guests' comments, so he set up a partnership with Politifact, a non-partisan fact-checking organization.

  • Meet the Press (NBC) Host David Gregory
    Meet the Facts at NPR "On the Media" - Last December, NYU professor Jay Rosen proposed something simple yet revolutionary: why don't the Sunday morning chat shows fact check their guests?

    • You Can Listen to Ring of Fire on These Stations HERE.
    • VIDEO! Papantonio: Alan Grayson is Pissed Off! Earlier this year, the Supreme Court made a disastrous ruling in the Citizens’ United case that will allow corporations to funnel as much money into political campaigns as they want. Luckily, there are still some members of Congress who are working to bring our democracy back to the people, and not to corporate America. One of those people is Congressman Alan Grayson, who co-sponsored the Shareholder Protection Act, which will prevent companies from giving to political campaigns without the support of their shareholders, and he recently spoke to Mike Papantonio about his efforts. You can donate to Congressman Grayson’s Money Bomb by going to this site
    • VIDEO! Papantonio: Cenk and Pap Go After BP The oil just won’t go away. NOAA was forced to admit that they were wrong about 75% of the oil being gone from the Gulf, and they now say that 75% is still in the Gulf. On top of that, BP is attempting to settle claims quickly by forcing those in need of money to sign documents agreeing to not sue the oil giant. Mike Papantonio discusses all this and more on MSNBC’s The Ed Show.

    Keep your hands off our oligarchs!! Stacy summary: So 17.3% of the US economy is health care and we’re supposed to believe that this is an innovative, competitive, genuinely free market global empire? And I love the solution this economist proposes of using anti-trust legislation (health insurance is uniquely exempt). Of course, half of the American population would man the barricades to prevent their favored banking oligarchs from ever having to compete.

    Obama’s Expanding Covert Wars . . . in France, Belgium & Spain? Stacy summary: We’re used to the US meddling in Latin America, ex-Soviet states, Africa and the Middle East, but this bit in Scahill’s latest Nation article caught my attention: "The Nation has learned from well-placed special operations sources that among the countries where elite special forces teams working for the Joint Special Operations Command have been deployed under the Obama administration are: Iran, Georgia, Ukraine, Bolivia, Paraguay, Ecuador, Peru, Yemen, Pakistan (including in Balochistan) and the Philippines. These teams have also at times deployed in Turkey, Belgium, France and Spain." READ Obama’s expanding covert wars @ The Nation
    Vrabel Post: Global Empire and the International Banking Cartel (part 2) by Damon Vrabel Last week I wrote an article explaining what I mean by the international banking cartel that operationally rules the economy–the Federal Reserve primary dealers. Some astute readers wondered why I didn’t report on the global regulatory institutions that have power over that cartel. Good question. And others asked for more clarity on the cartel itself. Regarding the first question, I purposely focused on the cartel because so many people still don’t believe it exists due to false free market propaganda. If people don’t realize that a cartel of predatory usury institutions operationally controls the US, then why would they care about the regulatory framework over those institutions? But the point is well-taken. I explain more in this article, including the truth about the crash of 2008.
