Cui Bono? Convenient Gulf Oil-Rig Fire Benefits Globalist-Corporate Takeover of Oil Industry

*Follow up #2 on: H.R. 3534 - The 'CLEAR Act': Globalists Push Onerous 'Oil Spill' Response Bill Through House 8-1-10 "......the measure is going to disadvantage and close down many small businesses because it fails to base liability limits on risk and instead completely repeals the cap, no matter the circumstances. Shallow water wells will be subject to the same liability requirements as wells drilled in waters of 5,000 feet or more. Smaller American drilling companies will subsequently find it difficult, if not impossible, to afford liability insurance and compete with BP and the other large multi-national companies."
What now for Gulf? Fire complicates drill debate

News of another oil rig fire in the Gulf of Mexico, so soon after the BP oil spill, has set off a wave of anxiety along the Gulf Coast and prompted calls for the government to extend its six-month ban on deepwater drilling.
Just when it seemed the Obama administration might be ready to lift the unpopular ban, the fire raises new questions about the dangers of offshore drilling, leaving the industry wondering when it can get back to work.
"Anything that casts any kind of shadow on the industry right now certainly complicates lifting the moratorium," said Bruce Bullock, director of the Maguire Energy Institute at Southern Methodist University in Texas. "It makes it difficult to continue to say that (the BP spill) is an aberration."
"There's over 100 fires in the Gulf in a given year. Were it not for the BP incident this would receive very little coverage," Bullock said. "This could have happened in a meat factory or a paint factory or anywhere else."
Even so, environmental groups and some Democratic lawmakers rushed to denounce offshore drilling and urged the Obama administration to extend the six-month deepwater ban to shallow water as well. The current ban has shut down drilling at 33 ocean wells, but there still are more than 7,300 active leases in the Gulf of Mexico, 58 percent of them in deep waters, according to the American Petroleum Institute.
The Interior Department has said it is considering lifting the ban for certain categories of rigs before the scheduled Nov. 30 expiration. But after Thursday's accident the department may hesitate to act.
A day before the fire, the American Petroleum Institute held a "Rally for Jobs" in Houston to protest the drilling moratorium. Mariner official Barbara Dianne Hagood was among those in attendance, according to a Financial Times report.
"I have been in the oil and gas industry for 40 years, and this administration is trying to break us," she told the London-based paper. "The moratorium they imposed is going to be a financial disaster for the Gulf Coast, Gulf Coast employees and Gulf Coast residents."
re: "extend...to shallow water as well"

"Just when it seemed" like the six-month ban on deepwater drilling might be lifted...lo and behold...a mysterious explosion and fire on another oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico..."prompting calls for the government to extend the six-month ban"...as well as "raising new questions about the dangers of offshore drilling".

Amazing coincidence. There seem to be a lot of those these days in the NWO global takeover b-plot movie script alternate reality being forced upon John Q. Public by the wannabe-kings of the earth.

In response to the convenient 'explosion', naturally, some "lawmakers rushed to denounce offshore drilling", calling for the deepwater-ban to be not only extended timewise, but extended also to include shallow-water drilling. Exactly as specified in the dictatorial "C.L.E.A.R. Act" [see update link above], which, having already 'cleared' the House, is awaiting passage in the Senate.
Cui bono? Too easy....
