In Part two of our hard hitting ATSNews Special Report: "The Mustang Conspiracy", ATSNews' Mark Allin (AKA: Springer) and 17 time Emmy Award
Winner, KLAS 8 News Now (Las Vegas, NV) Investigative Reporter, George Knapp discuss the unbelievable corruption, sex and drug parties and payola
schemes that transpired between the MMS and several Big Oil Companies. The Inspector General of the U.S. investigated the "Culture of Substance Abuse
and Corruption" that ran rampant through the Denver Office of the MMS and several big oil companies from 2002 through 2006. The U.S. Taxpayer was
bilked out of hundreds of millions of dollars, the environment was utterly neglected, the affected areas populations were at great risk (and still
are), all for the betterment of a handful of Big Oil Companies' bottom lines.

You may be surprised to learn that revenues generated by Royalties paid to the U.S. Government, in return for exploiting the oil reserves under public
lands, is the second only to TAXES in total gross income for the U.S. Government. That's a double edged statement. On the one hand, it becomes
obvious why government is so happy to allow things like "self regulation" to companies like BP, in spite of their abysmal record. On the other hand,
it begs the questions "Why do these appointed (NOT elected) officials sell these royalties for only pennies on the dollar compared to their fair
market value? Why do they totally disregard the laws of the land and allow these companies to do whatever they want to increase profits and control
costs by avoiding, or totally ignoring, health, environment and safety regulations?"
Because our public servants are, literally, IN BED with these companies.
Finally, part two also discusses the alleged, "real reason" for the very recent Mustang round ups off the horse's legal land. The 675 mile long
Ruby Natural Gas Pipeline that runs right through the Calico Herd's protected lands. After hearing about this pipeline, ATSNews' Mark Allin started
doing some good old fashioned investigative reporting of his own to see just who was behind this pipeline, who would benefit from it most. What he
discovered is disturbing but not surprising. The same Corporate Raiders who have been fined hundreds of millions of dollars, created environmental
disasters all over the U.S. (and many other parts of the world) because they just turn their nose up at safety regulations, best practices, and common
sense are ALL involved with the Ruby Pipeline.
The same bunch of villains who have plundered our public lands for decades, destroyed lives through their negligence and horrid lack of concern for
anything but huge profits are now destroying yet another piece of Americana, the Wild Mustangs of the Great Southwest. Watch part two and find out who
these corporate thugs are and hear Mark's plea to the ATS Community to help us expose the rest of this story!

Sex scandal between Dept of Interior Personnel and Oil Companies:
The alleged transgressions involve 13 Interior Department employees in Denver and Washington. Their alleged improprieties include rigging contracts,
working part-time as private oil consultants, and having sexual relationships with – and accepting golf and ski trips and dinners from – oil
company employees, according to three reports released Wednesday by the Interior Department's inspector general [Earl Devaney].
In its fifth report since 1995 about oil and gas royalties, POGO examines the mismanagement and corruption in the Department of the Interior's
Royalty-In-Kind program. The report tracks how industry's influence on the RIK program has been pervasive, and can be traced from the program's
inception through its expansion into the full-blown program that exists today. In the face of these numerous problems, POGO now demands the program
The person the Obama administration has just named to be Acting Director of the soon-to-be-dismantled Minerals Management Service -- which has come
under repeated attack during the BP oil spill disaster -- fired one of his subordinates at the Bureau of Land Management in 2004 for having blown the
whistle on what the subordinate saw as the lax environmental remediation efforts being undertaken by a BP-controlled copper mine in Nevada.

Description: A report of a series of internal investigations over the past decade warned senior BP managers that the company repeatedly disregarded
safety and environmental rules and risked a serious accident if it did not change its ways. The confidential inquiries, which have not previously been
made public, focused on a rash of problems at BP's Alaska oil-drilling unit that undermined the company's publicly proclaimed commitment to safe
This document shows the amazing web of companies that share ownership in the myriad organizations El Paso Corp (builders of the Ruby Pipeline) has
within its fold. The big question here is, how in the world would anyone ever get to the responsible parties in such a huge conglomeration? They
wouldn't, at least not easily and that's probably the plan.
This is a copy of the letter The United States Congress sent out to the CEO of BP regarding the serious questions and accusations surrounding the Gulf
This is the "Smoking Gun" that contractually ties that wonderful
outfit known as BP Energy with the Ruby Pipeline that is being built right through the Mustang's Federally Protected Range Lands.
