What If Exxon Did That?

Barack Obama’s EPA just generated the worst toxic spill in US history. Not a peep of outrage from green groups, Democrats or the White House.

If Exxon or any other private company did this, greens would be screaming bloody murder.

Greens and progressives are corrupt and perverted to their very core.  They don’t care one whit about the environment, polar bears or the climate. It is all a front for other agendas.

  1. This is what happens when you have someone in charge that makes the rules and enforces them.

  2. Had some mining company been irresponsible this would be a media calamity of galactic proportions.
    When the EPA does it, “Hey, a hundred miles of dilution and it’s like nothing happened so everybody just get over it!”

    • DD More says:

      Nick, do you mean to say that this problem cannot be undone by erasing a few emails and destroying a hard drive or two? Thought that this was their mindset, “Like it didn’t even happen.” H/T Intek Cleaning

      • I believe their current mindset is formally expressed as …

        “WHAT … DIFFERENCE … AT THIS POINT … DOES, IT, MAKE … WHY IT HAPPENED!!

        YEEEAAAAAAAAUUUUUUGH!

        and “It wuz puh-laced, in … [ :fluttering eyelashes: ] uh LOCK-BOX, mkay?”

  3. Hugh says:

    It was an accident.

    Private business technically can’t do an accident, they do it on purpose or because of greed. /sarc

  4. You are absolutely right!
    Sometimes less is actually better, yet the EPA wants to disturb this mine that has been sitting for years out of an “environmental” concern. My opinion is THEY DID THIS ON PURPOSE! Why? Several reasons: One, their actions are not driven by a true care for the environment, but by a true hatred for other human beings. Two, now that it is a ‘disaster’ they can intrude into EVERY area touching the Colorado river without any further need of an excuse…for YEARS! Thirdly, they needed this in some way for their twisted national (worldwide) agenda to be furthered.
    For the third reason I present something that came to me while with a friend of mine that owns a company in the Oil fields of Texas. Without going into the details (for time and space) it comes on good authority that the BP oil spill that burned and spewed oil for days and day could have been shut off within 3-4 days, but the Obama Administration wouldn’t let BP or the specialist do it. They told them NOT to go in and turn it off. BOTTOM LINE….they (the progressive machine) NEEDED the disaster.
    Oh, and then, they fined BP.

    • Jason Calley says:

      Hey Anthony! Did the Feds prevent a quicker resolution of the BP blowout? I would not be surprised. We have seen similar things in the past. Remember Hurricane Katrina? There were multiple instances of outside groups attempting to bring relief to the people of New Orleans, only to be turned back with threats of arrest or violence. Some of these groups were citizens of lesser hit areas just adjacent to N.O. who had organized together with local governmental and law authorities to help their fellow citizens and neighbors.

      In any disaster, the Feds (especially the Feds, but it can also be state bureaucrats) will do anything to enhance the idea that all safety and all rescue will come from them, and them alone.

      • That’s absolutely what I am saying. When I was in Texas there was a blowout preventer that malfunctioned in a BBX oil rig in Lumberton, Texas and they flew a welder in within hours and he went in there and welded it shut within HOURS (a very, very hazardous job – $9,000+). The oil contaminated the soil and had to be hauled out. It cost approximately $11 million dollars. The man in charge of the project told a company owner on the cleanup (my friend) about the deal with BP; as he had worked for them and had connections to the disaster. So, no I didn’t hear it straight from the horse’s mouth (because I don’t own a company in the oil fields), but there are a LOT of things that we don’t know about that are common knowledge among these oil workers. Why do I believe it? Because it is consistent and it translates into BILLIONS of $ if true…something that tickles progressive’s ears.

        As we know, governments are into convenient disasters to expand their power. Research the flood that happened in Canada about 3-4 years ago where there was a mandatory evacuation of the WHOLE town including parts that weren’t flooded. The Mounties went back three times “looking for victims”, kicked in doors and took EVERY gun in the town, including those that were locked up according to government regulations. The citizens still haven’t got the guns back. I apologize I cannot remember the name…I am working out in the woods right now. 🙂

        • Stewart Pid says:

          The flood was in June 2013 and the town is High River Alberta and the guns were returned starting the week they were seized http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/rcmp-begin-returning-guns-to-high-river-owners-1.1325562

        • Yes, thanks for looking that up for me. We have fires burning all around us and I just walked in the door from building a fire break.

          I must disagree with your statement “the guns were returned…”
          The article doesn’t say anywhere that any guns were returned. It says they are “in the process of returning guns…” Also, “if any firearms were taken…”, which in fact they all were. “…we expect they will be returned to their owners as soon as possible…” They expect… I expect a lot of things that never happen.

          I heard a man that lived there with my own ears say his guns and those of his neighbors were taken on the 3rd time RCMP came through and kicked the doors in. The gun(s) in question, to which I was referring, WERE in fact in government compliance of storage, YET they were taken. The entire question of ‘out in the open’ went all the way to the Canadian Supreme Court if I am not mistaken. No, not all the guns have been returned.
          A poll was taken of the resident whether they would evacuate again based on their previous experiences and over 50% said they would not in fact leave.

        • Tony Bernardo, executive director of the Canadian Institute for Legislative Action was there when it took place. Also, the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission, the RCMP Watchdog Group, verifies that the guns were ‘allegedly illegally’ taken. All the guns were NOT returned.

          This is one take on it:
          http://www.nranews.com/search/video/cam-and-company-2015-tony-bernardo-canadian-mounties-seize-guns-after-flood?q=alberta%20flood#

          The bottom line remains: The RCMP DID NOT comply with the legal structure in place and took advantage of the disaster. Period. Which was my original premise.

        • exNOAAman says:

          Thanks for that Anthony. I’ve long felt the same.
          Somewhere on my desk at my old job sat a couple pages of engineering calculations which proved (apparently) how a leaking well-head could be sealed off at the bottom of the ocean.

      • Menicholas says:

        It is for sure that they prevented ships who were able and ready to assist from doing so, ostensibly because they were not US vessels, but this rue could have been waived on an emergency basis.
        I do not know about the rest, but of that one issue I am certain.

    • Mike D says:

      Here’s Colorado’s Governor minimizing it, and coming up with a silver lining from this. Yes, the silver lining is more federal dollars and intrusion:

      http://news.yahoo.com/latest-colorado-governor-goes-see-mine-spill-impact-155451758.html

      “Colorado’s governor thinks a mine spill accidentally triggered by an EPA crew will move the state and federal government to more aggressively tackle the “legacy of pollution” left by mining in the West.

      Gov. John Hickenlooper said Tuesday that much of the wastewater has been plugged up, but the state and the Environmental Protection Agency need to speed up work to identify the most dangerous areas and clean them up.

      The former geologist says that if there’s a “silver lining” to the disaster, it will be a new relationship between the state and the EPA to solve the problem.”

  5. omanuel says:

    Thank you, Steven, for having the ability and the courage to expose Big Brother’s lies.

    Sometimes good develops from misfortune. Japan has very little fossil fuels and is now forced to restart nuclear reactors. That misfortune and direct experience of the atomic bombs that exploded in Aug 1945 may bring a careful re-examination of the validity of changes made in nuclear physics after WWII, e.g., replacing Aston’s valid concept of nuclear packing fraction with Weizsacker’s flawed concept of nuclear binding energy.

    “Greens and progressives are corrupt and perverted to their very core. They don’t care one whit about the environment, polar bears or the climate. It is all a front for other agendas.”

    Amen!

    Then what do they care about?

    What agenda does this advance?

    • AndrewS says:

      Every affected area can now be declared a Superfund Site. As Anthony said above: “now that it is a ‘disaster’ they can intrude into EVERY area touching the Colorado river without any further need of an excuse…for YEARS! “

    • Jason Calley says:

      What agenda? Power — the unquenchable desire for more and more power. The people who rule us are insane, literally insane. They are insane the same way a crack addict is crazy for crack and will do anything to get it. It is not a desire based on rationality or logic; it is a mania. These people are crazy for power and will do anything to gain more of it. Think Hitler, think Stalin, think Mao and Pol Pot. The only difference is that the US crop of tyrants have not had such an (quite) unfettered access to illustrate their power. If they thought they could kill millions and get away with it, then they would. They are addicted to power, so they MUST cause destruction and pain. Why? Because if their actions and their orders produced prosperity and happiness, then they would never be certain that THEY have power; after all, most people will choose prosperity and happiness for themselves. It is only by enforcing negative and harmful edicts that the power crazed can be absolutely certain that it is THEY who control YOU.

      They are mad dogs.

      • omanuel says:

        You are right. Driven by fear of nuclear annihilation in 1945, frightened world leaders United Nations to try to control the uncontrollable.

        NEUTRON REPULSION is the Divine Force of Creation, Destruction and Preservation, hidden from the public seventy years ago after destroying Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

        NEUTRON REPULSION in the core of the Sun was Kazuo Kuroda’s assurance worldwide human tyranny would fail.

    The new greens are the old reds. They want the destruction of western capitalism.

    Exxon?May be not a good example.
    Exxon is owned by the Rockefellers,
    the very same Rockefellers who are the driving force behind the UN since the end of the 40ies(just a few years after they stopped financing Hitler with their chase bank) and their
    green communistic Agenda 21 and AGW being a main part of it.

  9. Tony B says:

    On the other hand, I haven’t seen any of the Republican presidential candidates bringing up the subject for debate or criticizing the WH or EPA either. Just seems like it is going to fade away.

  10. sfx2020 says:

    Assuming you know everything, especially the motivations and hidden agendas of everyone, makes you sound like a crank.

  11. bit chilly says:

    the big difference between the private sector and the public sector in this situation is in the private sector someone would be fired for gross misconduct, in the public sector (state) the “lessons will be learned” mantra will trotted out as usual.

    as far as the control theories go, it is not always necessary to attribute malice to what could easily be sheer stupidity. knowing this was done by an american government agency, i would err on the side of stupidity.

  12. inMAGICn says:

    I have little truck with the EPA, but, regretfully, these accidents can happen under just about anyone’s watch. Mill tailings and tailings ponds are nasty creatures and those pushing the century mark or more are notoriously fragile. Having been in mining and in HAZMAT, there is generally no clear way to remediate mine waste without doing extensive preliminary mapping and evaluation in advance.
    The question in this case is:
    1) Were the EPA compentently allowing for the possibility of massive failure? In othe words, did this crew know what they were doing.
    2) Were they following established guidelines? (This may seem like just CYA, but enough sites have been remediated to give good techniques on how to proceed.)
    These are technical questions; the concerns noted above and on the ground are definitely how the RESPONSE to the spill was handled, and in that, it seems, the EPA gets an F.

    • David A says:

      Apparently they get an f on 1. as well. A local geologist aware of their plans, warned in advance that this would be the result.

  13. Steve Case says:

    Not a peep on the CBS evening news tonight. Sort of like it never happened. All sorts of coverage of fires, floods, and sandstorms in the western U.S. But a badly polluted river? Crickets.

  14. Reblogged this on On the Steps of Freedom and commented:
    A poignant double take on this disaster!

    • inMAGICn says:

      In my comment above, I gave the EPA the benefit of the doubt. Having read Mr. Taylor’s letter, I can no longer give them such. At best, they did NOT fully evaluate the risk before plugging and did NOT have control measures in hand. At worst, they were actually hoping for a spill, although, and perhaps this is giving them the benefit of the doubt, they did no anticipate its size.
      “From ghoulies and ghosties
      And long-legged beasties
      And the EPA day and night
      Good Lord, deliver us.”
