Texas City Exposes BP Explosions

By Captain Eric H. May

Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, July 20, 2010

The U.S. Government's Homeland Security , FBI and Coast Guard have teamed up with BP's security police in Texas City, Texas to roust journalists who ask questions or take pictures (i.e., do journalism). Claiming Patriot Act powers, they confiscate whatever they want, whenever they want, wherever they want, and from whomever they want.

Enter the Health Ranger, Mike Adams, editor of, to do battle with "Brit Pee," as Texas Citizens are now calling it. He wrote a 7/7 column, still going viral, in which he considered the possible reasons for BP's platoons of goons. He close with thought-provoking ideas about the BP "nuclear option" to fix the catastrophe along the Gulf Coast. He wrote:

"There is a conspiracy under way right now. It's a conspiracy between the U.S. government and British Petroleum to cover-up all evidence of what's really happening in the Gulf Coast."
"See, rather than tell the truth about what's happening in the Gulf, BP has resorted to police state tactics to threaten the media and intimidate journalists, threatening them with arrest, detainment and felony crimes if they get close enough to snap photos of what's really going on in the Gulf Coast."

"Perhaps BP and the federal government are about to unleash a nuclear explosion to stop the oil outflow, and they don't want anyone knowing about it until it's already done."
"Perhaps the U.S. government is planning a multi-state roundup and evacuation of the population to clear out the entire Gulf Coast region in anticipation of something big and dangerous (such as a nuke, or an oil-soaked firestorm of a major U.S. city, or a dangerous new chemical being dumped in the Gulf by BP, etc.)"
"Gulf Coast now a BP police state," Natural News, 7/7/2010

Adams does a good job proving that BP, especially in its "Toxic City" backyard, is a criminal conspiracy posing as a cowboy company. I'm a lifelong Houstonian and journalist whose experience with BP confirms his worst fears -- in every particular.

The Iconoclast has been receiving emails and calls from anxious employees of BP and other Gulf Coast oil companies since we published a report of bizarre high atmosphere explosions over Texas CIty on the night of July 28, 2005. These occurred only three hours after the third major BP Texas City refinery explosion in 15 months, and only two days after the first NASA space shuttle launch since Columbia's destruction 30 months earlier. NASA was in Clear Lake City, just a quarter hour away, causing many witnesses to suspect that NASA and BP were up to something together.

The insider report below reached us last year, and it shows exactly what Big Oil is trying so hard to silence with lawyers, guns and money.

Hello Captain,
I've been watching their moves at work. I have a plant radio and get to hear everything on the Refinery side and the Chemical side. In the last two weeks a lot of Refinery units were evacuated. Everybody had to leave except the skeleton crew. There is one thing that especially gets my attention, an email sent out to the Chemical side. I'm cutting and pasting it for you to read:
"On Thursday July 30 the fiber optic communication line to the TCC docks will be taken down for mandatory maintenance. This means no e-mail, internet, fax, or land line based phone service.  Communication must be done through the docks radio or the cell phone numbers below.  The work is planned not to exceed 16 hours and the contractors are dedicated to return service as soon as possible." (BP)

Since the 2005 ordeal with the Shelter In Place for 16 hours, I just thought this was something that needed to be brought to your attention. What's the shuttle doing this week? I tried to look on their website today, and it said landing is to be determined!!! Are they waiting on us?
I know the guys that are running this cable tomorrow morning. I asked the guy who decided what day it would happen. He said, "They are ready for us." That sounds like BP is calling the shots. Is this just business or are we being set up? Time will tell. I just wanted to keep you informed. You ARE the expert. I'm just telling you what I'm hearing. -- Izzi Ixxi

Like many an editor, I keep late hours, so by the time I opened the alarming email it was high noon, and Ixxi's intelligence was half a day old. I pondered whether there were anything specific enough to warrant exposing Ixxi's life or living to a killer company. We had never met or even spoken, but I had come to trust the BP Deepthroat who was so aware of the security details in Texas City, including that, in the aftermath of 9/11, Israeli Mossad agents had come to town to set up a counter-terror program for Texas City. The Iconoclast only recently obtained confirmation of this claim, from a senior member of Marathon Oil's security.

I was just about comfortable with my decision when I leaned that I had made the wrong one. At one o'clock a news alert about Bryan, Texas broke. The college city that provided for Texas A&M was just an hour northwest of us, and it was on fire. Next came a jolting number: 70,000 people were evacuating. The El Dorado fertilizer factory, reportedly chock-full of ammonium nitrate, might blow up like earlier amonium nitrate explosions in the Oklahoma City bombing of 1995, or the Texas City explosion of 1947. A military HAZMAT team just happened to be training in the area, and it rushed in to help. The Aggies, whom the rest of us Texans accuse of being a bit slow-witted, were quick to salute their saviors.

Not long afterward I caught another report that clarified things better still. At the time that this potential national-level emergency was playing out, Barack Obama was sequestered with his top military aides to participate in National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE-09).

"Obama Participates in Terror Preparedness Test," CBS, 7/30/2009,

Later Obama kicked back with some buds to drink a few Buds, and the media spent the rest of the day discussing the drinking. They forgot to tell us more about the near-disaster out by Texas A&M, where the George HW Bush presidential library stood, and where Defense Secretary (and former CIA chief) Robert Gates had been the university president for years.

"Beer Summit Begins: Obama Sits Down With Crowley, Gates," Huffington Post, 7/3/2009,

Joe Biden showed for the festivities, a nice touch, and I thought the pre-brew photo-op went fairly well, although BO didn't seem particularly festive. It was the Kenya Kid's first time in the driver's seat, after all, and for a military exercise in the vital petrochemical core of Southeast Texas. That's the very area that had become so strangely accident-prone since 9/11. Obama may well have had a bit of NLE-09 PTSD.

Just thinking about his maiden mission must have given him the chills. If that fire in Texas Aggie turf had touched of a fertilizer-filled factory, lots of college kids would have died, and the cause would never have been ascertained. People might have supposed that foreign terrorists had done it, and clamored for more war. The personnel and equipment would be hard-pressed to hang on until the Obama nation mobilized. If the terrorists were American, say some Internet insurrectionists who published conspiracy theories, then he would have to invoke secret emergency powers that W had drawn up for himself in 2007, and refused to show to Congress, NSPD-51. Crazy people had to be kept in check if you were leading your country from a global to a world war, he mused. He smiled his first real smile of the day.

Given time, the Obama nation he was chosen to create would materialize, one way or another. 9/11 had worked wonders for W years ago, and a 9/11-2B could give him the advantage he needed to move the ball in the court of public opinion. It wouldn't be a bad thing, really, if something like that occurred to refocus America, where people are so cynical about following their leadership.

Biden smiled with avuncular ease. Everyone knew that he could be counted on to step up if they had to replce KK (code-name for "Kenya Kid"). For now, at least, there was still time, and no one was thinking of Plan "Biden. In Obamalot, he was as loyal to Barry as Launcelot was to Arthur, and he liked Barry a lot more than Lyndon ever liked Jack.

Unfortunately, the danger of a BP nuke is not remote. Two years ago, Iconoclast Publisher W. Leon Smith demanded a Congressional investigation of our efforts to defend the Texas Gulf Coast from Big Oil. I exhort all concerned citizens to read his editorial, and the links that it references, as a matter of life and death:
"Time to Investigate Houston Is Now"

For the most complete collection of my articles, books and interviews:

In the articles section are my latest work on world war and false flag prospects, particularly in Chicago and Houston. At the site as well is the Mission of Conscience history by my former unit XO, Major William B. Fox (USMC). His research into the Ghost Troop missions is invaluable, as it documents our development of cyber-cavalry tactics to save countless lives in the BP explosions of 3/30/2004 and 7/28/2005, and in the Texas City nuclear incident of 1/31/06 - 2/2/2006.
