Judge Heavily Invested in BP and more

Follow the Money

We continue to follow our elected or appointed officials who value corporate greed, and in this case possibly personal greed as well,  over that of the lives under their jurisdiction.

U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman in New Orleans blocks Gulf offshore drilling moratorium

“The Less Than Honorable Feldman thinks it’s okay to play Russian Roulette with America’s shorelines. Methinks Feldman is bucking for a Supreme Court nomination.   He’s showing Big Oil he’s got the Right Stuff when it comes to making bullshit legal decisions.” here

Feldman’s financial disclosure report for 2008, the most recent available, shows holdings in at least eight petroleum companies or companies that invest in them, including Transocean Ltd., which owned the Deepwater Horizon.

Feldman’s 2008 financial disclosure report  also showed investments in Ocean Energy, a Houston-based company, as well as Quicksilver Resources, Prospect Energy, Peabody Energy, Halliburton, Pengrowth Energy Trust, Atlas Energy Resources, Parker Drilling and others. Halliburton was also involved in the doomed Deepwater Horizon project.

Feldman is a native of St. Louis and former Army captain in the Judge Advocate General Corps who was appointed in May to a seven-year term on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, according to court records.

The court meets secretly to consider government requests for wiretaps in national security cases, such as those involving foreign terrorist groups.

The lawsuit was filed by Hornbeck Offshore Services of Covington, La., and company CEO Todd Hornbeck said after the ruling he is looking forward to getting back to work.

    I do not wish to use this blog for a debate about the environmental disaster in the Gulf or make light of those killed or injured in this accident. Read the comment by Transocean.
    “We have filed at the request of our insurance companies”

    Anybody recognize this company God help those involved but more importantly God help us.
    We are not media darlings nor am I covered in feathers and struggling in oil I am not stood on beach crying about my beautiful beach being ruined and how my business is going down the toilet.

    I am in pain though fighting to get the treatment I need to make sure my checks arrive on time chasing attorneys as they play games with my life as I watch my life disappearing down the toilet and the hands of these people.

    To all of you in the Gulf Good luck your going to need it.
