On this week’s episode of ‘Jesse Ventura Conspiracy Theory’, questions were raised about the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Dots are connected showing possible motives for the ‘accident’. Jesse Ventura and his team of investigators unravel a trail of innuendo leading to profit motives, a relocation program by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to depopulate the Gulf region, and even a wild claim that Barack Obama has been a CIA ‘asset’ since the 1980s! Let the games begin!
Ventura meets up with Sherri Kane and Dr. Leonard Horowitz first. They inform Jesse that there was a considerable amount of stock trading happening just prior to the April 20th explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig. BP CEO Tony Hayward, the poster-boy for foot-in-mouth disease, had sold about a third of his own BP stock about five weeks before the ‘accident’. Transocean, which owned the oil rig BP was renting, oddly had a special ‘Put Option’ the morning before. Not convinced that something was up? Halliburton, who also had a hand in the Deepwater Horizon rig , purchased the clean-up company Coots and Boots just eleven days before the ‘accident’. Kane and Horowitz tell Ventura that this was a classic example of ‘Crisis Capitalism’. Create a problem then profit from the .
Another major component of last night’s episode revolves around the chemical dispersant Corexit which was used by BP during the spill. Many people involved in the clean-up have been getting sick. On top of that, we learn that the amount of oil that was ‘cleaned-up’ on the surface is nothing. About one hundred times more oil still remains in the Gulf of Mexico below the waves. We have heard about this from other sources and . Of giant layers of oil that extend for miles below the surface of the Gulf. Dispersants like Corexit cause the oil to coagulate and drop to the bottom.
Shocked and surprised, Jesse Ventura gets an invite from BP officials for a boat tour of the region! While the officials, like Gary Shute, tell Jesse all is well, Ventura keeps asking pointed questions. But, Shute “has no knowledge” of any health issues involving Corexit. Nor does he have any knowledge of a connection between BP and the makers of Corexit, Nalco, which is run by former BP execs. Shute argues with Jesse that the EPA approved the use of Corexit, despite it being loaded with fun poisons like mercury, cadmium and cyanide. Shute “has no knowledge” that Corexit is still being sprayed at night despite the EPA demanding that BP cease using it.
Now, it just wouldn’t be ‘Conspiracy Theory’ if Alex Jones doesn’t pop in to tell Jesse some hot tip! Jones says the real conspiracy is the clean-up. He tells Ventura that nearly all of those who worked on up the Exxon Valdez mess are now dead. Their average lifespan was cut down to 51due to the chemicals used. Jones says that depopulating the Gulf region is the goal, which would allow the oil companies to turn the whole area into one giant refinery.
The depopulation angle has two other sources. One is activist-lawyer Alfred Weber, who explains to Ventura how Katrina was just a dry-run for the Gulf oil spill. He tells Jesse that already, 150,000 people have been relocated from the region by the . He also alleges that Barack Obama was recruited as a CIA asset by none other than Mika’s dad, Zbigniew Brzezinski. As a major player in global , Ziggy hand-picked Obama as a potential president himself. Weber also tells Ventura that Obama’s point-man on the Gulf disaster, Dr Steven Chu, secretary of the Energy Department, had once received a $500 million dollar grant from BP. And, that Chu picked for his #2, Dr. Steven Koonin, who, coincidentally, was once BP’s top scientist. Nice!
But the final segment was the best! Here, Jesse Ventura meets with Dr. S. I. Rees, and an unnamed , from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Jesse confronts Dr. Rees on the Department of Defense plan to relocate the population from the Gulf region. She confirms that there is a plan, costing $1.2 billion dollars, to do ‘voluntary buyouts’ of some 17,000 residences. She also slipped in confirming to Ventura that they don’t have the full $40 Billion “yet” for the wider program which would include much of the Gulf coast region.
Now, needless to say, the Army Corps of Engineers is trying to improve the ability to resist flooding and hurricane BP oil spill. Another well done episode of ‘Jesse Ventura Conspiracy Theory’ as he tackles the BP Gulf oil spill disaster.in the area since Katrina. Whole communities were wiped out and many of the residents have no desire to return and rebuild. But, as we know, there has not been a new oil refinery built for many years in the United States. The ‘Not-In-My-Backyard’ syndrome has prevented such. How convenient if there is nobody left to object? The program was started long before the
