Michigan Oil Spill Cleanup Boils Down to A Contest for Ideas Provided to the EPA!

The article US-Canada pipeline leaks oil into Michigan river details the event and it appears that nearly 1/2 day’s flowing supply was lost to the creek. It is not a comfort to see the EPA rear its ugly head in our Great Lakes as they have not done well in the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill (the EPA failed to inspect what it expected). The fact that this is not the first significant leak for Enbridge Energy Partners this year within the United States is also troubling. The symptoms from unqualified inspections and outright negligence are overwhelming and have led to:

Oily birds found after Calhoun County leak

WOODTV8 | July 26, 2010

MARSHALL TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — An estimated 20,000 barrels — or 840,000 gallons — of oil have leaked from a pumping station into the Tallmadge Creek south of Marshall, an official with the pumping station’s owner said Monday evening.

The oil has moved into the Kalamazoo River at least as far as Ceresco, between Marshall and Battle Creek, as of 8 p.m. Monday. Oil could be seen coming down the dam in Ceresco and staining vegetation in the river.

An Enbridge Pipelines spokeswoman said she wasn’t certain how far the oil had traveled as of 9 p.m.

Neighbors alerted 24 Hour News 8 to oil-covered geese along the river between Marshall and Battle Creek.

“It just breaks your heart to see creatures suffering,” Sherri McGee said. “It’s just terrible. Somebody should be out here doing something.”

Enbridge spokeswoman Terri Larson said the company is aware of the birds and is working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. People wanting to report endangered animals — or any oil issues — can contact Enbridge at 1-800-306-6837.

Crews were working to place barriers Monday night but we wondered: is the company confident that the barriers were be placed ahead of the oil?

“What I can say is we’re bringing our full resources to bear to contain and resolve this situation. Everything we can throw at this we are throwing at this,” Larson told 24 Hour News 8.

Oil Spill In Michigan

lniewenhuis | July 28, 2010

This is footage from the Enbridge Energy Pipeline oil rupture near Marshall, Michigan, just 10 miles from where I live. The spill is flowing into the Kalamazoo River which flows through West Michigan and out to Lake Michigan. Last year, I walked all the way around Lake Michigan, a journey of over a 1,000 miles. Seeing this oil on its way to the lake horrifies me. Read more about my journey around Lake Michigan at: LakeTrek.Blogspot.com

Michigan State Police at Enbridge Oil Spill Press Conference

Michigan Oil Spill News And Updates

Just a few follow-up thoughts:

This article is ridiculous, since we don’t have a Pro-Active POTUS, but a slacker in reacting.

Where has PHMSA been during the cleanup, use of dispersants and disposal of oil in the Gulf of Mexico and now the ongoing situation in Michigan?

Why do disasters in the United States of America require a contest for answers? Because we have a weak White House administration that doesn’t have a clue!

Do We Have Another Act of War by Mexico? Where’s Obama?

Are Private American citizens’ properties under siege and now controlled by Foreign National Drug Dealers as reported by The Cypress Times: BREAKING: MULTIPLE RANCHES IN LAREDO, TX TAKEN OVER BY LOS ZETAS? If so, this makes it personal. These would not be illegal immigrant migrant workers. These would be hard core criminals in a gang fully armed and committed to the illegal Act of War by invasion.

I personally have attempted to contact the Watch Captain at the Laredo Police Department to find further information. The phone system forwarding is difficult if one does not have a name-

956-795-2899 and 956-795-2899

But each call, required a transfer to the phone system as the officer who answered, ” …was not permitted to respond…”

Sadly, this is not the first possible event of this kind!

July 6th (Washingon, DC) United States v. Arizona via the enemy sympathizers in the bogus administrations aka TREASON

Where’s Obama? Out golfing again?

The United States Via Obama and Mexico Team Up Against Arizona… Where Does Your State Stand?

U.S. v. Arizona – Complaint Filed 7-6-2010

Mexico’s SB 1070 court brief

Mexico-Motion-Against-Arizona-in-Plain-English

Patriotic American Citizens, just how do you feel about the U.S. Government siding with another nation against our beloved Grand Canyon State of Arizona? It would appear that the “thin skinned” Obama is having himself an old-fashioned temper tantrum. Does the Bogus POTUS have nothing better to do then wage war on a Constitutional law abiding state of the United States of America?

What Did Bogus POTUS Spout During His Failed History and Immigration Speech?

During Obama’s Immigration Reform Speech yesterday besides the obvious goofs, gaffes, mistakes, and duhs…. he uttered the forever immortal stupefying sentences:

“…Contrary to some of the reports that you see, crime along the border is down. And statistics collected by Customs and Border Protection reflect a significant reduction in the number of people trying to cross the border illegally…”

So, “Mr. I Wish I Was A U.S. Citizen”, have you absorbed any relevant news prior to tripping the TV light gaffetastic? Oh, what a mighty Moron in Chief? So, near and on the border, on the very same day of your breathe-less “hysterical” (to American citizens) speech we notate:

21 killed in shootout between drug, migrant trafficking gangs near Arizona border

El Paso Police Chief Responds To City Hall Shooting

Bogus POTUS, why don’t you walk “on the wild side” along that secure and low crime ridden border. Pick a border state, one of the southern ones, and stroll along it. A real man would and he won’t have backup, you have seen to that, with your dereliction of providing essential numbers of border patrol field agents. Desk jockeys don’t count! You think El Presidente Calderon has it out for you Obama?

By the way that's 50% of the southern border states on 1 day!

Also miles in, on either side of Mexico, and the U.S.A. it’s still a border state (Mexico calls the areas States as well). Just because Tucson, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Diego, Dallas, Houston, Deming, and Sante Fe don’t sit on the border edge, does not make them any less affected or “uncounted” on statistics for stolen cars, murder, drugs and mayhem due to illegal alien encroachment.
