In Spite of Oil Spill, Wall Street Still Likes Halliburton See full article from DailyFinance:

Wall Street Supports Halliburton

Wall Street has been quick to defend Halliburton, at least based on the limited information available so far. The stock traded up 74 cents, or 2.4%, to $31.39 on Monday as analysts expressed confidence that the company was not to blame.

"We believe a confluence of events outside the control of either Halliburton or Transocean may have contributed to the blowout," said Robert MacKenzie, an FBR Capital Markets analyst, in a report. "Given this analyst's former experience as a cementing engineer and the evidence available today, we can find no fault so far with anything Halliburton may have done and are thus more confident that the stock should gradually recover as investors gain a similar confidence."

YAY! Wall street is backing Halliburton, sunny days ahead for Halliburton and their new asset BOOTERS & COOTERS!

Hay after it has been through the digestive tract of a male cow.

Some of you need a cure for your Bush Derangement Syndrome. I reccommend Jonestown Kool-aid.

Doesn't anybody find it odd that just after Obama says that he wants to increase off shore drilling, an oil platform catches fire and sinks?

As far as the remote valves go try Greenpeace. The same Court order that they are trying to get the US Navy with, over their use of sonar, prevents the use of the frequencies that these switches operate on in US waters. Got to love the irony.

Yes it is odd, isn't it? Very VERY ODD. Thanks for your input. I just looked up jamestown, i will try to see if i can find any of their kool-aid products are available for sale online, sounds really great!

Halliburton may also be implicated[49] in the oil spills in the Timor
Sea off Australia in August of 2009 and in the gulf of Mexico in April of
2010 for improper cementing. An investigation is underway as to the
cause of the Australia spill.

The Times article reported that Halliburton employees had
been performing “concrete operations” just before the accident
occurred, and the company had been involved with that activity
before the Australian incident, too.

A Halliburton employee, David A. Doeg, testified to the Australian
commission that he made the problem worse at the Montara
well by repumping concrete during an incorrectly handled procedure
before the blowout.

Such an operation may have been intended to temporarily seal the
well, perhaps prior to installing permanent pipe or moving the drill to
another location,

And more instances of leaks and spills, 2002 and 2006

In 2002 a Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) reports were done
to see if chemicals being emitted were harmful to people from
Halliburton's Harris County, Texas facility. The facility had 230
TRI air releases in 2001 and 245 in 2002.[47]

On June 7, 2006 Halliburton's Farmington, New Mexico facility
created a toxic cloud that forced people to evacuate from their

Maybe they need to change their name to
the Leaky Halliburton.

Major accidents in 2002, 2006, 2009 and 2010.

However, the oil disaster in Australia. The oil company
owning the oil rig was PTT Exploration out of Thailand.
The accident happened in August 2009.

2 months after this spill supposedly caused by Haliburton's
cement procedures, the Thailand's stock market
went into a selling frenzy. Some PTTEP stocks were sold
at bottom prices to Oman Oil which caused their stock
prices to actually rise (make a profit) less than 2 months
after an oil spill.

Oman Oil Company, OOC ( is fully owned
by the Government of the Sultanate of Oman. The company was
created in 1992 to give the Government a vehicle for pursuing
investment opportunities in the energy sector both inside and
outside Oman. The company is currently involved in a number
of projects in countries such as UAE, Korea, Thailand, Kazakhstan
and Spain.

Had this accident by Haliburton NOT occurred, the stock prices
would not have tanked allowing the purchase of PTTEP Stock.

Conflict of interest here, Haliburton worked on the PTTEP rig
that had the spill in Australia and at the exact same time
won an oil contract from Oman Oil, the same company who
purchased the down stock of PTTEP when it tanked.

Now fast forward to 2010.
the same exact accident with an oil spill in gulf
happened once again with BP's stock blowing
out the bottom on Wall Street. See who buys up
BP Stock in the near future and you will find out
who paid Haliburton to cause this accident.

And I bet it leads you to Saudi Oil
or one of it's subsidiaries !!!

This was an intentional act, not an accident.

Alright, i can finally possibly confirm that Boots and Coots was hired to help clean up this mess.

Boots & Coots Inc. of Houston and Amarillo, Texas-based GSM Enterprises Inc., two of the companies that extinguished hundreds of oil wells in Kuwait set ablaze by retreating Iraqi troops in 1990, have been brought in to help cap the leaks.

Also, i found this:

[h1]Winners and losers[/h1]
With the total oil-spill tally fast approaching the size of the Exxon Valdez disaster's 11 million gallons, Wall Street has been assessing the potential winners and losers in the tragedy.

Oil-well control specialists Boots & Coots Inc. (WEL 2.94, -0.01, -0.34%) and oil-service companies such as Tidewater Inc. could also be busy with the cleanup.

A Boots & Coots spokeswoman said BP is one of its customers, but declined to comment on any role in the situation. A Tidewater spokesman declined to comment.

So they are probably working on helping with this mess but will not say that they are cleaning up the mess. OK. Nothing to see here...

HALLIBURTON: Hired to sabotage a British BP well ?

This is quite interesting. Apparently this might have been a home-grown terrorist attack in retaliation against the United Kingdom, through its key company British Petroleum, due to their insistence at the USA returning trillions in stolen funds. In such case it wouldn't be exactly an act of the American people against the British, but one of the Bush Sr. CIA Crime Family and its US Illuminati branch against their angry British counterparts.


Although no cause has been determined, oil services contractor Halliburton Inc. says it finished a cementing operation 20 hours before a Gulf of Mexico rig went up in flames."

"Halliburton is named as a defendant in most of the more than two dozen lawsuits filed by Gulf Coast people and businesses claiming the huge oil spill could ruin them financially. In one lawsuit, two Louisiana shrimpers claim cementing contributed to the explosion."

"Halliburton said Friday [30th April 2010] it had four workers stationed on the rig, performing several tasks, including cementing, a process of applying cement and water to a pipe used to prevent the wall of the hole from caving in during drilling."

Here is the source for this news tidbit. Whatever your reaction to the very knee jerk pro-Brit rhetoric, some of the facts are undeniable and the context in which this has occurred is far from placid and peaceable.

Endemic Corruption in Brussels and Halliburton

You will also read lower down in that same article some very shocking information about how Bush Jr. and Dick Cheney stole CIA equipment and fully loaded CIA computers to sell them to foreign countries for cash, with the complicity of Tenet - which led to the brutal ritual torture assassination of 168 CIA operatives including quite a few of their children.

Great find. This is disaster capitalism in action.

Step 1: Create a disaster.

Step 2: Create a subsidiary or buy up another business.

Step 3: Use this business to 'fix' the problem you caused.

Step 4: Collect the moolah.

Eisenhower warned us about this in 1961, these people are scum.

Thanks you guys! It is quite sad.

But the most obvious sad thing about all of this is we know that nothing will come of this. There will be no blame for this, and if there is these companies have so much money it doesn't even matter. This is the world we live in. Money is power. Got a problem? Money can fix it. It's like criminals hiring the best lawyers, it is a complete joke. The lawyers are buddy buddy with the judges, spends a few minutes before the "trial" talking to the judge and magically the criminal gets off. I have read too many John Grisham books to know how the legal system is corrupt. Anyone can be bought.

Oh well. Nothing to see here...

Well, when i read the following i almost crapped my pants. I screamed out WHAT! at my monitor. This hasn't been talked about here on ATS and i may make a thread about this but i want some confirmation on this because i have never heard of this website i'm quoting from:

"Halliburton is under Justice Department Securities and Exchange Commission investigation over allegations of improper dealings in Iraq, Kuwait and Nigeria," Whitley Strieber wrote March 12, 2007.

Halliburton announced on March 12, 2007, that "it would open a corporate headquarters in the United Arab Emirates city of Dubai and move its chairman and chief executive, David J. Lesar, there." [1] "Halliburton will remain a US company subject to US laws, but Dubai has no extradition agreement with the United States, meaning that Mr. Lesar could not be compelled to return to the US to testify, stand trial or serve any sentence related to any Halliburton activities under investigation."

The company will also maintain its existing corporate office in Houston, Texas, "as well as its legal incorporation in the United States, meaning that it will still be subject to domestic laws and regulations."

Below quote is from Feb 2007

At the hearing on Feb. 6, Waxman questioned former Ambassador L. Paul Bremer on what happened to as much as $12 billion in unaccounted-for cash spent when he was in charge of rebuilding Iraq. While acknowledging he made mistakes, Bremer said the funds were Iraqi money used to help revive the economy after the invasion by paying salaries in cash.

I am doing quick searches to confirm this and it appears true:

This is from March 12, 2007

Halliburton Co., currently the largest military contractor in Iraq with billions of dollars in Pentagon contracts, announced Sunday that it was planning to move its CEO and corporate headquarters from Houston to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

The move could eventually save the firm a fortune in U.S. taxes, but it is raising serious questions about its priorities and prompting at least one possible congressional hearing.

Dave Lesar, Halliburton's chairman, president and chief executive officer, made the announcement at an energy conference in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Lesar said the goal of the move was to focus on Eastern Hemisphere "oil exploration and production opportunities, and growing our business here will bring more balance to Halliburton's overall portfolio."

Run by Vice President Dick Cheney from 1995 to 2000, Halliburton has a five-year, $16 billion contract with the U.S. Army and total revenues of $22.6 billion in 2006.

Energy analyst Roger Read says if the company formally incorporates itself in the U.A.E., the banking mecca of the Middle East, company profits will soar.

"You'd probably be looking at a tax savings of several hundred million [dollars]. … It's a win for the shareholders," Read said.

all i can do is shake my head.

"Halliburton Hauls Ass to Dubai" ... After receiving $25.7 billion in US government contracts to "rebuild" Iraq, the fat cat executives at the oil services giant decide to relocate their HQs to the well-known tax haven in the United Arab Emirates. On today's episode of KBTV ...

Halliburton has to be one of the most evil companies the world has ever seen. Even the shady Dubai people were skeptical of Halliburton moving to Dubai. Nothing can be done to stop them either. If you fine Halliburton it doesn't matter, they make billions of dollars each year. You can't break up the company because they are now half located in Dubai. You can't ask the CEO any questions because the F'er lives in Dubai to avoid questioning. This is one reason why Capitalism is crapitalism.

Nice find, and great research, BeastMaster2012. I too have been able to connect Halliburton to high crimes and misdemeanors. Remember, they were big in the First Gulf War, and Dick Cheney was CEO wasn't he? IMHO, Halliburton is the "get it done" arm of the New World Order take over crew, you know, the group that wants We the People to be their slave work force, that is, when all of the "undesirables" are eliminated. This is the way of things, where one likes it or not, these people the OP is talking about are a nest of vipers, and control fanatics all. Money and Power is their drive, mostly the former, hell, they already control 80% of the world's money and economy, through their Banking Cartels around the world, and the Seats of Power that do business with them.

Dr. John Coleman is a former intelligence agent of British MI6. He rips the lid off the conspiratorial group which knows NO national boundaries, is ABOVE the law of ALL countries and controls every aspect of politics, commerce, religion, industry, banking, insurance, mining, and even the drug trade. Learn how this small elite group who are answerable to NO ONE, except its members, have pulled the strings on ALL major world events and why, until now, few people have even been aware of its existence, let alone power, in manipulating the affairs of the entire WORLD. All of these members are revealed, including all of the corporations, government agencies and various movements which "they" have developed and control to further their own aims for WORLD DOMINATION.

Can you imagine an all powerful group that knows no national boundaries, that has set itself above the laws of all countries, one that controls every aspect of politics, religion, commerce and industry, banking, insurance, mining, the drug trade, the petroleum industry, a group answerable to no one but its members?

To the vast majority of us, such a group would appear to be beyond the realms of possibilities and capabilities of any given organization. If that is what you believe, then you are in the majority. The concept of a secret, elite group exercising control of every aspect of our lives is beyond our comprehension. Americans are prone to say, "it can't happen here, our Constitution forbids it."

The signs are very clear, for those who seek....

If only people would have listened....

On February 17, 2006, in a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations, Defense
Secretary Donald Rumsfeld spoke of the harm being done to the country’s
security, not just by the enemy, but also by what he called “news informers” who
needed to be combated in “a contest of wills.”

In 2002 Attorney General John Ashcroft announced his desire to see camps for
U.S. citizens deemed to be “enemy combatants.”

A Defense Department document, entitled the “Strategy for Homeland Defense and
Civil Support,” has set out a military strategy against terrorism that envisions
an “active, layered defense” both inside and outside U.S. territory. In the
document, the Pentagon pledges to “transform U.S. military forces to execute
homeland defense missions in the . . . U.S. homeland.” The strategy calls for
increased military reconnaissance and surveillance.

The Washington Post reported on February 15, 2006 that the National
Counterterrorism Center’s (NCTC) central repository holds the names of 325,000
terrorist suspects, a fourfold increase since fall of 2003. A Pentagon official
said the Counterintelligence Field Activity’s TALON program has amassed files on
antiwar protesters.

Shortly after Bush orchestrated 9/11, he issued "Military Order Number One",
which empowered him to detain any noncitizen as an international terrorist or
enemy combatant. Today that order extends to U.S. citizens as well.

Halliburton subsidiary "KBR has been awarded a contract announced by the
Department of Homeland Security’s United States Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE) component. The Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity
contingency contract is to support ICE facilities and has a maximum total value
of $385 million over a five year term. The contract provides for establishing
temporary detention and processing capabilities in the event of an emergency
influx of immigrants into the United States, or to support the rapid development
of new programs".

Many of the fears of the founding fathers may now be coming to fruition. Today, the executive branch of the government is immensely powerful, much more powerful than the founding fathers had envisioned or wanted. Congressional legislative powers have been usurped. There is no greater example of that usurpation than in the form of the Presidential Executive Order. The process totally by-passes Congressional legislative authority and places in the hands of the President almost unilateral power. The Executive Order governs everything from the Flag Code of the United States to the ability to single-handedly declare Martial Law. Presidents have used the Executive Order in times of emergencies to override the Constitution of the United States and the Congress.

President Andrew Jackson used executive powers to force the law-abiding Cherokee Nation off their ancestral lands. The Cherokee fought the illegal action in the U.S. Supreme Court and won. But Jackson, using the power of the Presidency, continued to order the removal of the Cherokee Nation and defied the Court's ruling. He stated, "Let the Court try to enforce their ruling." The Cherokee lost their land and commenced a series of journeys that would be called The Trail of Tears.

President Abraham Lincoln suspended many fundamental rights guaranteed in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. He closed down newspapers opposed to his war-time policies and imprisoned what many historians now call political prisoners. He suspended the right of trial and the right to be confronted by accusers. Lincoln's justification for such drastic actions was the preservation of the Union above all things. After the war and Lincoln's death, Constitutional law was restored.

In 1917, President Woodrow Wilson could not persuade Congress to arm United States vessels plying hostile German waters before the United States entered World War One. When Congress balked, Wilson invoked the policy through a Presidential Executive Order.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066 in December 1941. His order forced 100,000 Japanese residents in the United States to be rounded up and placed in concentration camps. The property of the Japanese was confiscated. Both Lincoln's and Roosevelt's actions were taken during wartime, when the very life of the United States was threatened. Wilson's action was taken on the eve of the United States entering World War One. Whether history judges these actions as just, proper or legal, the decision must be left to time. The dire life struggle associated with these actions provided plausible argumentation favoring their implementation during a time when hysteria ruled an age.

This is quite easy to see, for all who would look for it. The trouble is, people have lost their spirit, their drive to be number one in most all things. Professional attorneys/politicians are re-elected again and again, and the people actually believe they have a choice in the matter anymore. Take this in, if nothing else. As long as American is officially at war, we are all under the War Powers Act.
Take that to heart.
