    Bush brought in with him, the handlers of Gerald Ford
    to continue their old game of building up the Military Industrial Complex;
    Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfield, and Richard Perle;
    all tenured architects of Global White Supremacy


    9/11 happens and thousands of young Black lives are lost in 2 wars costing over a trillion tax dollars

    Obama brought in with him, the handlers of Bill Clinton
    to continue the destruction of the economy
    Alton Golsbee, Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner
    Summers an architect of Black genocide, via toxic dumping in Africa
    Geithner an architect in Black impoverishment, by his defense of derivitives and Federal Reserve power, that cost hundreds of thousands of folks of African descent, their jobs, homes and savings

    the economy and the dollar took a nose dive
    and corporate criminals were rewarded with over a trillion dollars.

    Now he also brought in; Salazar

    TIM DICKINSON:....Ken Salazar, in the first year in office, put a record number—a record number of acres up for lease in the Gulf. So, while they were taking, you know, drilling out of view of national parks on land and scaling back the oil shale development, they were throttling up offshore oil drilling to record levels without doing the substantive reform that would have been required to make MMS something other than a candy store for the oil companies

    JUAN GONZALEZ:
    Salazar already had a record while in the Senate of backing greater exploration offshore. Can you talk about that?

    TIM DICKINSON: Yeah, he had, back in 2006, opened up eight million acres of the Gulf through a bill that he sponsored, and he had pushed President Bush to make oil companies develop their existing leases more quickly. And someone described this to me that there’s sort of an onshore Ken and an offshore Ken Salazar, and he has a very sort of highly specific soft spot for offshore drilling. And don’t—I can’t account for what that’s about exactly, except that, as a Westerner, I think he’s sort of more acutely aware of the damage that development can do to the landscape, and maybe this is a way he’s seen as to create a—you know, create the problem someplace else other than in his beloved Western landscape.

    1. Mr. Salazar has done little to halt oil and gas drilling on Colorado’s Roan Plateau. Yes, he has protested. Yes, he has “discouraged” the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) from opening the area to drilling. But this falls far short of what is needed. Salazar has failed to introduce or support federal legislation to protect this area from destruction and protect the local people from the toxic effects of the drilling. This is a crying shame. The Roan is one of the most incredible places in my home state. That it will be industrialized is nothing short of a calamity.

    2. Mr. Salazar strongly supported former Interior Secretary Gale Norton when George W. Bush nominated her to the post. Norton, a former lobbyist for the lead-paint industry, is the source of all the problems Interior faces today. Those problems include Interior employees having sex with oil company executives in exchange for oil and gas leases. And worse. This was a decidedly poor judgment call on Salazar’s part (he also strongly supported Alberto Gonzales for Attorney General, as Time magazine recently recalled, “even escorting Gonzales into the U.S. Senate on the first day of his nomination hearings.”)

    3. Mr. Salazar has consistently supported the interests of the oil and gas industry above the need for conservation and alternative energy sources. He maintains very strong industry ties. He voted (like Obama) for the appalling 2005 energy bill. He voted to end the offshore drilling moratorium; he voted against the repeal of tax breaks for Exxon-Mobil and voted against increasing Corporate Average Fuel Economy

    "When Ken Salazar became my Secretary of the Interior, one of his very first acts was to clean up the worst of the corruption at this agency. But it’s now clear that the problem there ran much deeper, and the pace of reform was just too slow. And so Secretary Salazar and I are bringing in new leadership at the agency -- Michael Bromwich, who was a tough federal prosecutor and Inspector General. And his charge over the next few months is to build an organization that acts as the oil industry’s watchdog -- not its partner. "
