THE SOURCE OF THE GULF BLUE PLAGUE: Syntholeispirea Gulfmexicana (BP)

By Michael Edward

If you have been following our previous articles, especially The Gulf Blue Plague: It’s Not Wise to Fool Mother Nature (, then you should now begin to understand what is occurring in the Gulf of Mexico. If you haven’t read the previous referenced article, then do so before attempting to understand what is presented here. This paper should be considered an integral continuation of that article.

What is factually taking place in the Gulf of Mexico - in biological and genetic terms - is neither natural nor happenstance. The reality of synthetic microorganisms and artificial genomes is not a newly discovered science even though the lamestream media claims otherwise.

Genomic Bioremediation. Get used to hearing this term because it’s what’s behind the Gulf Blue Plague (BP). Let’s get a few definitions out of the way to understand what this scientific term means. The phrase ‘genetic makeup’ is commonly used when referring to the genome of a particular organism. The study of related organism genomes is known as genomics. The word bioremediation refers to the use of biological agents, such as bacteria, to remove or neutralize contaminants, such as crude oil. Studying the genetic framework of oil-eating bacteria used in the Gulf of Mexico is a form of Genomic Bioremediation.

On May 6, 2010, Terry Hazen of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory stated “It is important to remember that oil is a biological product and can be degraded by microbes, both on and beneath the surface of the water.” Remember this statement with regards to not only beneath the water surface, but on the top of the water as well.

On August 24, 2010, it was revealed that a team of scientists, headed by Terry Hazen, had found that microbial activity of “a new and unclassified species was degrading the oil in the Gulf of Mexico much faster than anticipated” during a May 25 through June 2, 2010 study. You don’t anticipate something unless you specifically know the previously established scientifically controlled characteristics of what you’re studying. Obviously, they knew what the expected rate of degradation for this novel and uncategorized genus of microorganism was and they were able to scientifically measure the rate of degradation based on its identified degradation rate. In other words, they knew what the microorganism was even though it’s officially not yet classified.

Hazen should know. He has studied numerous oil-spill sites in the past and is the leader of the Ecology Department and Center for Environmental Biotechnology at Berkeley Lab’s Earth Sciences Division.  He conducted this specific Gulf of Mexico research under an existing grant he holds with the Energy Biosciences Institute (EBI). EBI is a partnership led by the University of California (UC) Berkeley and includes Berkeley Lab along with the University of Illinois. The grant is for the specific study of “microbial enhanced hydrocarbon recovery” or, in simpler terms, the study of how to use microorganisms, such as bacteria, to cause a greater amount of oil to flow out of a crude oil reservoir. Should it be a surprise to anyone that this particular grant is exclusively funded by a USD $500 million 10-year grant from British Petroleum?

Hazen’s results were based on the analysis of more than 200 samples collected from 17 deepwater sites in the Gulf of Mexico. Their research incorporated the use of the PhyloChip, a unique credit card-sized DNA-based microarray that can quickly and accurately detect the presence of up to 50,000 different species of bacteria and archaea (a group of single-celled microorganisms) in a single sample without the need of lab culturing to identify them. Use of the PhyloChip enabled Hazen and his colleagues to determine that the dominant microbe in the oil plume is a new species. They revealed that this new species of bacterium was closely related to members of the Oceanospirillales family, particularly Oleispirea Antarctica and Oceaniserpentilla Haliotis.



Oceaniserpentilla Haliotis (OH) is a genus in the Oceanospirillales order with a 92.9% genetic sequence similarity to Oleispirea Antarctica (OA). Since the genome of OH is so closely related to OA, we will look at the two in light of OA only.

So, here we have a scientifically confirmed new oil-eating species of bacterium in the Gulf of Mexico that’s closely related to a bacterium only found in Rod Bay and the Ross Sea, Antarctica (OA), and another one only found in the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand (OH).

How do you suppose a new related species of this bacterium from deep cold water Antarctic environments mysteriously and suddenly ended up in the Gulf of Mexico? By use of proven synthetic RNA sequence processes, a new synthetic genome microorganism can be created in 24 hours according to J. Craig Venter of Synthetic Genomics, Inc. and the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI).

To simplify things, let’s just name this new and unclassified species of synthetic genome bacteria for all the scientists since they can’t seem to recognize it for some unknown reason. Let’s call it a new genus of the Oceanospirilla order:

Syntholeispirea Gulfmexicana (SG). Bacteria (domain); Proteobacteria (phylum); Gammaproteobacteria (class); Oceanospirillales (order). A novel synthetic genome hydrocarbonoclastic marine bacterium currently introduced into the Gulf of Mexico.

If any U.S. professional scientist would have the courage to verify what’s presented here, they’d plainly see that SG bacteria are psychrophilic, aerobic, and Gram-negative with polar flagella; they won’t grow or replicate in the absence of NaCl (salt); they have a preference for aliphatic hydrocarbons; and they have a distinct phyletic line within the Gammaproteobacteria.

The Gammaproteobacteria class comprise of several important groups of bacteria, such as the Enterobacteriaceae, Vibrionaceae and Pseudomonadaceae. A number of important pathogens belong to this class, such as:

Salmonella (enteritis and typhoid fever)
Yersinia pestis (plague)
Vibrio cholerae (cholera)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa (lung infections)
Escherichia coli (E-coli)

Cholera is an acute bacterial infection that often occurs in epidemics by spreading in contaminated water or food. The best ways to evade cholera are by avoidance of raw or improperly cooked seafood, which may have become infected by ingesting infected plankton. Could there be infected plankton in the Gulf of Mexico, a major food source for Haiti?

A scientific paper recently released by Dauphin Island Sea Lab shows that a faint “shadow” of oil can be seen in the plankton and copepods in the Gulf of Mexico. Those tiny animals ate the microbes (synthetic genome bacteria) that have been eating the oil. The study stated it was important to note that their research documented carbon from the oil working its way through the food chain.

Their study states that dispersant use on the surface “almost certainly accelerated the microbial consumption of the oil” and left little doubt that the oil consumed by the bacteria reached the zooplankton at the base of the marine food chain, an incredibly important food-source for fish, jellyfish and whales.

According to Terry Hazen, many hydrocarbon-degrading enzymes have iron as a component. He also states “There’s not enough iron to form more of these enzymes, which would degrade the carbon faster.” So then, what would happen if you added iron to the Gulf of Mexico?

The oil-eating bacteria they introduced into the Gulf would be able to eat the oil at an accelerated rate if there were more iron, but typical Gulf water naturally has a very low trace of iron. But according to rainwater tests from Gulf rainclouds, Iron and other elements are being added to the Gulf waters. Perhaps now you can understand that the “dispersant” formula being used also contains elemental nutrients, such as iron, copper, manganese, nickel, and aluminum to enhance and feed the SG bacterium placed into the Gulf to eat up the oil.

Mutations of the plankton have already been verified by University of Southern Florida (USF) scientists months ago. Once this important marine food source has RNA mutations, then everything up the entire food chain is affected. That includes humans who consume fish or crustaceans. What are we facing? More than we can comprehend. Once you alter the bottom of the food chain, you alter everything from that point on. The Gulf Blue Plague is a reality and has been for many months. It’s a worldwide problem.

Wherever the Gulf wind blows and wherever the Gulf water flows.

Syntholeispirea Gulfmexicana (SG) exhibits a 90% or higher match to this RNA sequence.
Now every scientist can verify what already exists.

This whole matter is obviously scientifically complicated, but it gets even more so when one begins to define, and I am saying we should address this small point because I have to ask you, at what point does a computer designed nano engineered bio organism become by definition a"Bio-weapon?" I believe this Gulf Blue Plague is a bio-weapon. Since the vaccine patent implies fore knowledge it appears that the initial purpose of use by BP was to increase oil flow. This was achieved, but if that process met with some ancient bio organisms and mutated then we still have to ponder why would they have a vaccine patent for a sickness that does not yet exist? Or did it exist and they knew about it and they designed it, played with it and in doing so, whatever final version they used, had the vaccine to counter the mutation process of being absorbed into other organisms.

If the original intention was to disperse a nano engineered synthetic to deal with the oil disaster then one has to ponder, why was it designed with an antibiotic resistance if not needed to do something by intention beyond the scope of eating oil? Once you settle on any answer, you are left realizing that much of the original intent, before the mutation into what is currently in the gulf was to use synthia to increase profits while covertly contaminating the food chain and the human population that sustains itself on that food source. It this is true then the mutation could be outside the ability of the vaccine developed to do anything. If they already know this, they might try to sell a vaccine they already know wont work. Then can then of course inject you with anything if they play out that deception on the public.

If my premise is sustainable, it makes the initial release of synthia in the gulf an "intentional" act to eventually contaminate sea and marine life while eventually endangering humans and their food sources with irreversible DNA contamination. The plankton and food chain is affected and the world is slowly becoming a victim to this same issue. The cholera outbreak in Haiti is a possible mutation of this same synthetic organism.

Anyway, to answer many of these questions will require us to think dark thoughts about dark actions that many do not want discussed or investigated. The media black out and the governmental complicity is aggravated by a complete lack of scientific and medical support. We must use where necessary the International community because at this point it affects us all. With no desire to discuss this issue or for the truth to be revealed, it is already apparent to me that this subject matter will be ignored as long as possible. Besides, who really could and would believe that the FDA, EPA, NOAA and even the Obama administration would all be holding hands singing the water is fine, come on down and eat the shrimp, its safe to eat.

Oh well, this is an excellent effort on your part and I encourage even more analysis of those areas that will clearly show that this whole incident was much more than just some oil spill.

Mike Utsler, Chief Operating Officer of BP's Gulf Coast Restoration, admits publicly
There is a new form of microbiology that is attacking this (oil) plume and using it as a food source.
