This article makes so much sense!
Podesta also runs the Center for American Progress, a left wing think tank that is said to have the most sway over the administration.
Now we know why Gorelick was hired, why BP is getting a free pass, why they supported the stim bill, etc.
PLEASE SEND THIS TO GLEN BECK!!!!!!
My conspiracy detector is pegging the meter.
Its not a CT when it is out in the open and true.
Everything makes perfect sense now to me. Beck has talked about the Podesta connection amongst the Apollo Alliance, Crap & Tax, the Stim Bill Etc.
Now we know they are working for both obama and BP at the same time!
Finally, please tell me why BP lobbied for the Stim Bill? What did they get out of that?
here we go and I bet the 20 million will travel in a circle..tax payers will get the bill for the leak plus lose all jobs. slavery is back...thats what this is..the same ones we voted into office have enslaved us.
Yup. The 20 Billion is probably not a pittance to what it should cost them, yet, I’’ bet their liability is capped at 20 billion now. You watch.
I agree 100%..and most of that will vanish like our tax dollars
Just wait, the 20 Billion might actually be the BP bail out. We will see how this unfolds but I suspect that the tax payers will foot this bill. Obama doesn’t have the authority to make this deal and is a circumvention of the legal process. Something smells about this deal.
Now, find the link to Lindsey Graham.
My conspiracy detector is pegging the meter.
More like karma than a conspiracy. BP pushed the global warming hoax and wasted money on green energy instead of paying attention to safely and efficiently extracting the oil and gas the world needs. Karma is a bit@#.
When did BP get the approval to drill this well? Was it after OBOZO HUSSEIN took Office? and How Much has BP contributed to OBOZO and the entire Demorat Partyand How Much has BP spent on their Massive Advertising Campaigns supporting OBOZO’S CAP and PLUNDER AMERICA AGENDA? Why wasn’t EXXON out drilling there when BP had a Horrific Violatios Record (790+ Major Violations) verses EXXON’s One Minor Violation in the same time period!!!! Stinks the High Heavens!!
The Podesta, Appollo Alliance, Stim Bill, Wall Street Bailout, Gorelick connection had me up late last night looking at all of this.
This really stinks and I believe is the tip of the ice berg of the corruption Beck has been exposing.
I’ll see what I can dig up.
Just guessing, but it could be that, in view of their less-than-impeccable safety record, they were "buying" some bureaucratic "look the other way" stuff on safety inspections.
I sent this article to everyone I know.
The 0bama administration thanks yu for doing their anti-capitalist bidding for them.
I really hope Beck sees this article and puts his people on it. This to me could, should, and would be valid grounds for impeachment of this entire admn from the top down for incompetence, malfeasance, and conflicts of interest that are beyond the pale.

WH Takes Cues from Liberal Think Tank on Spill
By Jonathan Weisman
If you want to see where President Barack Obamas response to the Deepwater Horizon disaster is heading, try following the urgings of the Center for American Progress.
The liberal think tank with close White House ties appears to have more influence on spill policy than the presidents in-house advisers. On May 4, for instance, the CAPs energy and environment expert, Daniel Weiss, called on the president to name an independent commission to look at the causes of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. On May 22, he did just that.
On May 21, CAP president, John Podesta, privately implored White House officials to name someone to be the public point person for the spill response. A week later, the White House announced that Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen would hold daily briefings on the spill, wherever he would be on any given day.
On May 26, Weiss said the White House needed to demand that BP immediately set up an escrow account with billions of dollars from which claims for Gulf state residents would be paid out.
Mondays headlines proclaimed the presidents latest get-tough stand: BP needs to set up a billion-dollar escrow account. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703389004575304650090670686.html?mod=WSJ_hps_LEFTTopStories
Whats next, Mr. Podesta?
