Last week I wrote about PENNSYLVANIA HOMELAND SECURITY GAS DRILLING. I had also pointed out there was distribution of ITRR’s reports to gas industry interests. Click here for more on email exchange between Former PA Homeland Secretary Jim Powers, ITRR and Pam Witmar.
One reader wrote back pointing out a 2010 PCN press conference with the then PA Governor Ed Rendell speaking about PA Homeland Security tracking.
I have been unable to find a video or transcript of the actual press conference. (If anyone has a link to it, I’d appreciate it if you send it along.)
According to the reader, during the press conference, Rendell stated PA Homeland Security had credible evidence the anti gas drillers were going to put barrels of frack fluid on the sidewalk outside Rendell’s Germantown home. He made the statement in reference to the September 2010 Pennsylvania Actionable Intelligence Bulletin (PAIB) No. 132.
Firstly it wasn’t BARRELS of FRACK FLUID as Rendel stated – it was JUGS of WELL WATER CONTAMINATED BY NATURAL GAS DRILLING.
Secondly, how severe was the threat? ITRR rated it as LOW.
Thirdly, according to the Gas Industry and their supporters fracking fluid is “safe”.
So where’s the threat if fracking fluid is “safe”?

SPINNING THE PSYOPS
Josh Fox appeared on the Diane Rehm Show yesterday to talk about Gasland II. In addition to Josh Fox, Steve Everly was also a guest.
Everly was listed as a spokesperson for Energy-In-Depth (EID). EID is a public relations campaign by the Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA). Everly is also Assistant Vice-President at FTI Consulting, which was hired by IPAA to run the EID public relation campaign. (WATCH the Messengers of the Natural Gas Industry).
The issue of PSYOPS was discussed. According to Everly, the gas industry spin on this is complete “shock” over the accusations of using PSYOPS on American citizens….
ADVISORY: Please remove all throwable objects which may be damaging to your furnishings computer before continuing.
According to Everly – the industry is NOT employing people for PSYOPS, they are hiring VETERANS, and isn’t the industry wonderful for doing so?
Specific to the audio clips in GASLAND II where the use of PSYOPS was discussed, Everly claims they were taken out of context, and/or mentioned by a ‘couple” of people. In otherwords, use of PSYOPS was not to be taken seriously, and aren’t we wonderful to hire veterans?
TXSHARON has the full scoop on gasser PSYOPS.
Private para-military corporations are being hired to “protect” the gas industry from protestors.

Now we know where some of those “JOBS” are being created, in addition to the stripper and hooker ones.
