The Department of Justice wants to settle with BP. Really? — 7 Comments

  1. It’s impossible to understand what’s going on with BP in this country without understanding the complexities of their current CEO’s prior relationship with Russia, his agreements with Vladamir Putin on the Rosneft deal for Arctic oil and the TNK-BP partnership.

    There’s an excellent article here that really explain most of this. I had to take it a little slowly,but it’s understandable, and not too technical.

    There’s been some talk here in Houston that Transocean and Halliburton are pushing the DOJ to settle. I have absolutely no way to confirm that – it’s pure gossip – but it does make a certain sense. There has to be something going on, whether it’s payoffs to the government from BP or something else, because you’d think the Obama administration would be delighted to have a big oil show trial to point to during the political season.

    In any event, my personal view of the DOJ is that it’s corrupt as anything that’s come down the pike in a long, long time. From refusals to prosecute voter intimidation to the ill-fated “Fast and Furious” gun-running operation, they’re just bad. In my humble opinion, of course. I don’t think any of this has anything to do with Republican/Democrat – it has to do with money, and who’s stuffing it into whose pockets. Unfortunately, I don’t think a lot of Bayou pockets are going to get much of it.

  2. It’s just my personal opinion…Shoreacres’ last sentence pretty much sums it up. It’s unbelievable what the government does these days. Their actions certainly aren’t for “We The People”!
