Americans are being gassed from poisons spewing and spreading north to south. Odd, major oil spills within hours and with investigated anomalies suggest terrorists in the midst, but not those pesky peace and human rights workers that government, military and petrochemical companies call "terrorists" and subject to hit-squad treatment.
Within 48 hours, adding to BP's Gulf of Mexico suspicious gushing toxins that, with government condoned deadly Corexit, is 11 times more lethal than crude oil, more crude suddenly spewed 20-feet high in south Louisiana bayou country from a mystery well accessible only by boat and over 800,000 gallons more gushed from an underground pipeline connecting the U.S. to Canada.
"Canada and the U.S. have signed an agreement that paves the way for the militaries from either nation to send troops across each other’s borders during an emergency, but some are questioning why the Harper government has kept silent on the deal.
"Neither the Canadian government nor the Canadian Forces announced the new agreement, which was signed Feb. 14 in Texas.
"Gen. Gene Renuart, and Canadian Lt.-Gen. Marc Dumais, head of Canada Command, signed the plan, which allows the military from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation in a civil emergency."
Parts of the Canada-US connecting pipeline have been off-limits to high-tech maintenance according to insider reporting to this Examiner.
At Tuesday's Deepwater Horizon Incident Press Briefing, Admiral Thad Allen was asked about a nuclear submarine's attack on an oil drill shaft.
The nation's people, water and food supply is being contaminated north to south. A hurricane blowing in from the south or east would churn tropical waters, sweep more chemicals inland through wind and rain, and magnify suffering of Southerners. Already, toxic rain is being reported as far north from the Gulf as New York and as far east as Colorado, coating people and their food, seeping poison into the nation's water supply.
Now Michigan has become home of one of the nation's biggest oil spill disasters in history, and one of the most poisonous places to be with 860,000 gallons of crude heading for Kalamazoo, Michigan.
"They are warning residents that this oil is highly toxic with benzene, a carcinogen, and to stay away from the water - the fumes are strong apparently - and not even to try to help wildlife," stated Kalamazoo resident, Dr. Joetta Carr, in an email to the Examiner.
Joetta Carr, Ph.D. is founding member of the Emergency Committee to Stop the Gulf Oil Disaster, a professor at Western Michigan University, and longterm environmentalist, participating in the first Earth Day in 1970 as a student.
"As I write this, a huge oil spill is heading directly down the Kalamazoo River and is close to Kalamazoo, where I live."
The Kalamazoo River is a Superfund pollution site for extensive PCB contamination from paper mills dotting the area. The River is so poisoned, its fish cannot be eaten.
The oil spill was Sunday. Residents reported smelling oil to 911 Sunday night. According to Carr, however, "nothing was really done until Monday."
U.S. Representative Upton reports that federal investigators have been dispatched to determine whether Houston-based Enbridge Energy Partners delayed responding to a warning that the pipeline had a leak.
A warning may have sounded as early as 2:30 am Monday but allegedly went unreported to federal authorities for up to 11 hours.
Carr agrees with Michigan's governor, congresspersons and other authorities: The response has been "inadequate."
"Not enough resources are mobilized, and the spill is heading toward Lake Michigan," said Carr.
Oiled wildlife, including geese and swans immobilzed by oil are the immediate toll on life. The human impact, according to CDC, "is potentially the same."
Louisiana bayou spew
Every year, Louisiana-based oil companies average over 200 "accidents," massive explosions that release toxic waste into the air and poison people for miles - even if they do run inside and duct tape their doors and windows as told. Such "accidents" are the easiest and least expensive way for oil companies to rid crude oil toxins, 1/3 of every barrel. (Tickell, the FUEL film, 2009) In Louisiana, most of that 1/3 of every barrel is burned into the air, dumped on the land or dumped into the water.
Louisiana's new gusher yesterday is in water connected to a network of waterways. AP reports, "Mud Lake is part of a network of bayous and lakes north of Barataria Bay, an ecologically sensitive coastal estuary where authorities have been fighting waves of oil from the Gulf spill."
According to the Coast Guard, a tow boat named Pere Ana C. hit the Louisiana wellhead near Mud Lake early Tuesday, but they did not know who owns the small well, accessible only by boat according to the AP.
Thad and his casing and nuke submarine moments
At Tuesday's Deepwater Horizon Incident Joint Information Center teleconference press briefing by Admiral Thad Allen, National Incident Commander for the Deepwater Horizon/BP oil spill, and Dr. Jane Lubchenco, NOAA Administrator, Mark Chediak with Bloomberg News asked Allen, "I was wondering who is responsible for cementing the casing in the relief well?
Allen replied, "You know I don’t know off ha[n]d but we can find that out and get it to you."
He further explained, "You know, a lot of these things are done by subcontractors and there are a lot of them that are out there. And they aggregate together to do what their specialty is and we will get that and pass it to you. I just don’t know off hand."
Subcontractors? Same rationale for airline corruption posing a national security risk. How many "subcontractors" are CIA connected, just doing their jobs?
After a couple of other questions, according to the Press Briefing transcript, the press briefing Operator announced, "Our next question comes from the line of Daryl Hohn with [inaudible]."
Daryl Hohn: "Morning Admiral. My question is did you receive my documentation that indicates that possibly a nuclear submarine had ran into the drill shaft and caused this explosion? And do we know if there’s any evidence of what has caused this to explode?"
Allen replied, "Are you, if your talking about the initial explosion on the, on the Deep Water Horizon, no I am not in receipt of any information. We’ll see if we can’t make arrangements for you to get it to me.
"I don’t think we have any indication that that did occur. There’s a Marine Board of Investigation that’s been in panel to look at the cause of the accident and that’s actively underway right now in taking testimony of witnesses with subpoena power.
"And I think that’s a proper body to determine the cause of the accident, we’re pretty much focused on the response here."
Chemical poisoning of Americans in the south has increased for almost 100 days. It is causing immediate life-threatening illnesses including "chemical pneumonia," plus long-term TILT, miscarriages and cancer that government is not admitting. Mid-northern Americans risk the same gassing and health and survival threats. Suddenly, however, the nation has a major shortfall of emergency care drugs and nobody is publicly acknowledging where they are.
