Rush Is Right about a BP Horizon Terror Attack

by Captain Eric H. May Monday, May. 03, 2010 at 6:53 PM

Rush Limbaugh, the superstar of right-wing talk radio, has always been quick to savage conspiracy theories. On Thursday though he revealed his own.

Rush to Judgment?

HOUSTON, May 3, 2010 -- Rush Limbaugh, the superstar of right-wing talk radio, has always been quick to savage conspiracy theories. On Thursday though he revealed his own, which is that the BP Horizon explosion was caused by environmentalists, and that federal "SWAT" teams fanning out across the Gulf of Mexico are part of a national defense response.

"What better way to head off more oil drilling, nuclear plants, than by blowing up a rig?" he rhetorically asked. "I'm just, I'm just noting the timing here."

"Rush Limbaugh blames ‘environmentalist wackos’ for massive oil spill," The Raw Story, 4/29/2010,

We shouldn’t dismiss “Rushbo” as a conspiracy theorist, even though the master of talk radio has learned to hurl that pejorative at callers who suggest unpopular explanations that he would rather not hear or broadcast. No, we should recognize that Rush understands political and criminal reality well enough to recognize what I learned in four years with Houston-area police: conspiracy is one of the most common crimes on the books.

I began to listen to Rush in 1990, the same year I was a Desert Storm volunteer. I often disagreed with his geo-political positions, but appreciated his on-air (and self-proclaim) "excellence in broadcasting.” I shared his contempt for the mainstream media, even after I began publishing regularly op-eds in mainstream publications like the Wall Street Journal, the Houston Chronicle, and the Houston Post. I continued to laugh at his satire and oratory, enjoying his brawling bombast even when he put his foot in his mouth. I generally accepted his pro-football analysis, and was disappointed when he flubbed up and lost his position as a Monday Night Football commentator.

Bush's military misadventures brought us to a parting of the ways. Writing military analysis for the Houston Chronicle, I published pieces forecasting a long, unwinnable “quicksand war” in Iraq. Rush, one of many pro-war hawks with no military experience, predicted the same cake walk that the Bush administration did. I had the strong impression that Rush was waking up to the Bush League errors of the cheerleader in chief in the summer of 2003, but within weeks of his first remarks against George W., he was arrested in Governor Jeb Bush’s Florida on narcotics charges.

An Anti-Lambaugh Conspiracy?

It was my own conspiracy theory that the Bush boys were working in tandem to make sure that Limbaugh parroted the official line -- or else. The same view was pretty common among my Texas journalism buddies, who, like me, were personally familiar with the likes of George W., Jeb, George H.W., Joe Albaugh and Karen Hughes. They were capable of any kind of dirty trick or payback.

Like most regular Rush listeners I was convinced when he used to accuse the Clintons of sexual misconduct, Whitewater crimes and even assassinations, most notably White House lawyer Vince Foster. Unlike most “ditto heads” though, I could see the same truths of corruption and killing when the shoe was on the right foot. For those who blame Rush for not criticizing Bush, let them consider that a month after Rush was under virtually arrest, pending Bush League prosecution, George W.’s biggest political danger died mysteriously in Houston, and was as covered up by the mainstream media as Vince Foster had been a decade before:

"Dead Woman Who Accused Bush of Rape" Pravda, 11/12/2003,

It was high irony for this Cold War, Russian-speaking military intelligence officer that I had to read the story of her death in Pravda. Sometimes a good scout has to look behind enemy lines to assess the real situation. To this day I continue to read such sources as Pravda, Haaretz, Al Jazeera and Press TV. Anyone with a background in investigation learns to scan and process as many diverse sources as possible, and to shun the public relations and propaganda that combine to spoil the American monopoly mainstream media.

Conflicting Conspiracies

Two extremely divergent publications below illustrate the value of variety:

The first is an Israeli newspaper noted for its connections with the ruthless and resourceful Mossad intelligence agency. In a story brought out the day Israel refused to attend an Obama nuclear weapons summit – despite their possession of around 200 nukes.

“For the first time, debkafile's military sources report, Tehran indicated the possibility of passing nuclear devices to terrorists capable of striking inside the United States.”

"Tehran: If Iran is attacked, nuclear devices will go off in American cities," DEBKAfile (Israel), 4/13/2010,

The second is a discussion forum maintained by supporters of Ron Paul, the Libertarian former presidential candidate who criticizes Israeli belligerence as a big part of the problem in the Middle East.

"Someone said to watch for something on April 19, 2010 and June 21, 2010. I don't know if there is anything to it, but we all know they are up to no good and planning something."

"Israel is going to nuke US and blame Iran," Daily Paul, 4/17/2010,

Interesting, isn’t it, that the “Paulestinian” pundit above gave an alert period beginning the day before the BP Horizon blew up in the Gulf of Mexico. Take the two sources together and discover what I consider the great geo-political issue of our times:

How much should we fear an Iranian weapon that both U.S. intelligence and the International Atomic Energy Agency say does not exist. How much should we fear an Israeli false flag attack like that they carried out against the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967 in an attempt to sink the ship, kill all survivors and blame the attack on Egypt, with whom they had just started the Six Day War? Are unseen powers angling to put us into another quicksand war?

A Confirmed BP Conspiracy

Rush should stand firm with his conspiracy theory about terrorism on the BP Horizon, in the opinion of this expert analyst. While I doubt that environmentalists were behind the mysterious and increasingly suspicious event, I do believe that either the U.S. or Israeli governments were involved – along with BP itself – in what looks like practice for a pending false flag attack. The surge of military and White House officials to the area may well be the prepositioning of forces for such, which would usher in domestic dictatorship and start a war with the patsy, Iran.

I leave the considerate reader with three final articles. They detail my own conspiracy theory, as a professional, about BP conspiring to carry out a false flag attack against their crumbling Texas City refinery, the second largest in the nation, in 2006. The first piece put forth my alarm several days before the pivotal event. The second compares the efforts of two journalists, one of whom opposed the conspiracy by exposing it, and one of whom abetted the conspiracy by covering it up. The third is, I believe, the best available researched account of Big Oil’s false flag efforts since the Iraq war began, and is sufficient to warrant federal prosecution or impeachment for many of the nation’s top officials.

I offer them in the spirit of healthy debate and earnest truth telling to all Americans, right or left, from me to Rush Limbaugh.

“Now before anyone labels May as paranoid or a “conspiracy theorist,” not the worst moniker in the world, let us consider some other facts. When a fellow resident of May, a Mr. Jon Watkins, recently visited the Texas City Police Department to share his concerns, he as other citizens found that there were ongoing “SWAT” team exercises in the area that involved numerous police and government agencies, including the Houston Police Department, the Pasadena Police Department and Homeland Security.”

"Texas City a strike point for nuclear attack?," Looking Glass News, 1/28/2006,

"Texas City British Petroleum employee heard `strange abort signal' on local radio station the morning Army Intel Officer predicted nuclear strike at plant. BP employee also said ‘other strange events’ occurred, leaving her ‘nervous and on edge.’ WMD military support team was conducting a training session at a location near Texas City."

"The 1/31 Nuke: Proof for Ron Paul," The Lone Star Iconoclast, 1/29/2008,

"As an epilogue to my Texas Triangle analysis, I leave a short appendix of interviews and articles below, for the most part broadcast and published a few days before or after the events they address. I believe that the interested reader will find more than enough material here to reach an informed opinion of my efforts."

"The Texas Triangle: Terror and Treason," The Lone Star Iconoclast, 10/24/2007,
