On Pollution Complaints and Intimidation

This was sent in earlier this week –

These are the same crooks that victimized so many in Lake Charles, Louisiana…

Scrawls on National Security, Technology, Civil Liberties, and Foreign Affairs

The crooked company committing these bank thefts was formed inside the U.S. Secret Service Financial Crimes Division by their then-Regional Supervisor Paul Rakowski. Beckett Brown International (BBI) committed numerous racketeering and corporate espionage crimes planned, directed and carried out by retired high-level USSS agents. It is my contention that a massive “culture of corruption” at Secret Service began no later than with the formation of this outfit which specialized in stealing trade secrets and proprietary information.

Baltimore Lawyer Threw Own Client’s Case to Protect Bank-Robbing Banker from Scrutiny

Further, my source says [ in a letter to The Department of Homeland Security, Office of Inspector General ] . . .

” I have personal knowledge – and literally a ton of evidence – that a ginormous culture of corruption has been going on at the U.S. Secret Service for at least 20 years.  A business plan for Beckett Brown International dated April 8, 1994 was given to me later during that year.  The USSS Regional Supervisor of the Financial Crimes Division was the driving force behind that plan and my investment of large sums of money into that company.  That agent turned out to be a crook and Beckett Brown International turned out to be a criminal enterprise.  Paul Rakowski belongs behind bars and all the racketeering crimes committed under his watch need to be exposed as what experts are calling the biggest corporate espionage scandal of all-time…”

. . . so they cannot pretend they don’t know who the culprits are.

On Greenpeace – SpyGate

In 2008, Greenpeace learned from an investigative report published by James Ridgeway in Mother Jones magazine that chemical companies including Dow Chemical, as well as public relations firms including Ketchum and Dezenhall Resources had paid the private security firm Beckett, Brown, International (BBI) to spy on Greenpeace from 1998 to 2000.

Thoughts about the Texas salt dome explosion years ago – Salt dome explosion: 20 years later

[snip] ” . . . . I learned from a volunteer firefighter that a young Brenham police officer found the lifeless body of a blue-eyed, blonde-haired 5-year-old boy named Derrick Meinen. His mother, they said, was taken by helicopter to Hermann Hospital in Houston. Meanwhile, a resident told me about three other lives in danger: A mother and her adult daughter were burned over 60 percent of their body when their car was flattened by the explosion; the 3-year-old child in the car was burned as well. All were taken to a Houston hospital. . . .”

Giant Ethane, Natural Gas and Fracking Crud Pipeline Coming to Gulf Coast in 2014

Enterprise Announces Gulf Coast Ethane Pipeline

HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mar. 12, 2013– Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE:EPD) announced today that it has received transportation commitments to support development of a new 270-mile pipeline header system that will deliver ethane to petrochemical plants in the U.S. Gulf Coast region. As designed, the Enterprise Aegis Pipeline (“Aegis”) will originate at Enterprise’s Mont Belvieu, Texas liquids storage complex and have the capacity to transport purity ethane to multiple petrochemical facilities in Texas and Louisiana. . . .

This big project is described in gushing terms in this bankster write up:

Trend No. 1
The U.S. energy map is changing, and in order for oil and gas producers to get the most bang for their buck, they’ve got to get production from unconventional regions to the highest paying markets in the country. That’s where Enterprise comes in. The partnership has an expansive asset footprint along the U.S. Gulf Coast and its capacity for processing natural gas and fractionating natural gas liquids is hard for competitors to match, let alone beat. However, much of this production is suddenly coming from the northeast corner of the country, and not the Gulf Coast as it has in the past. As a result,
Enterprise is moving full steam ahead on its planned ethane pipeline, the ATEX Express, which will run from the Marcellus Shale to the Gulf Coast.

The ATEX Express will have access to every ethylene plant in the U.S., and some producers like Chesapeake Energy who have already secured capacity on the line acknowledge that their production won’t increase until this project comes online. . . .

A Mutiny at Occidental Petroleum

Wall St. JournalInvestors Push Out Oil Boss

One of the highest-paid corporate executives in the country lost his job Friday, as investors at Occidental Petroleum Corp. OXY +3.03% made Executive Chairman Ray Irani the latest victim of a rising wave of shareholder activism.

Investors overwhelmingly voted to remove Mr. Irani, with 76% of the votes cast opposing his re-election at the annual meeting of the Los Angeles-based energy company. The 78-year-old, who was forced to step aside as CEO two years ago over what investors criticized as his outsize pay, recently angered shareholders who were concerned he played a role in trying to oust the company’s current chief executive, which the board denied. . . .

. . . . . Mr. Irani has long been among the highest-paid executives in the U.S. From 1994 through 2012, he realized more than $1.1 billion in compensation from Occidental, according to calculations by The Wall Street Journal and Kevin Murphy of the University of Southern California. The total includes salaries, bonuses, perks and realized gains on both restricted stock and stock options. A 2010 analysis by the Journal and Mr. Murphy found that Mr. Irani was the third-highest paid CEO of the prior decade. At the time, an Occidental spokesman said company directors believe in “excellent pay for excellent performance.” cry . . . . .

Catastrophe Bonds Reach Highest Level Since Japan Earthquake

From Sept. 24 –

Demand for bonds designed to protect insurers from payouts on natural disasters is increasing, with an index tracking the debt at the highest level since prices plummeted in March 2011 after Japan’s earthquake.

Catastrophe bonds returned 0.33 percent last week, boosting the Swiss Re Cat Bond Price Return Index to 94.12, the highest in 18 months. The gauge, which tracks the debt sold by insurers and reinsurers and bought by investors who lose money if they’re triggered, tumbled to 93 in the month following Japan’s temblor on March 11, 2011. The measure fell to 90.8 in May.

Demand for the debt is increasing as investors chase returns linked to the probability of events such as hurricanes while facing record-low yields in speculative-grade corporate debt. . . .
