HOVENSA Chatter Heating Up Again!
IT seems that we are beating on the grave where the dead horse is buried!
Mapp must be selling the refinery to Guam hence the extended trip.
FYI as far as I know the Guam trip is a command performance. The Dept of Interior has had money available for many years for territories to investigate/prepare for/mitigate the potential effects of climate change. They've let these $millions go unspent, (just as they have with education funding and much other money, pfffffffffft!) and the governors have been called together to learn how to spend it and learn of the consequences of not spending it. Happens to be in Guam.
VI Consortium had this article:
VI Consortium had this article:
The same 'newspaper' that has run over $50,000 in ad's for Monarch?
The same one that has banned me (twice) from posting anything to show how Monarch
is a front for someone trying to disrupt the sale of the facility?
Wait until next week. You'll see more ads and stories about Monarch again. Guaranteed.
Besides, James should ask his colleagues about a deal (if there is one). Sanes and Vialet are the source of the information for that story, not Hess, Not Hovensa and not PDVSA.
I started the Virgin Islands Consortium Banned Users Page on Facebook for this reason!
You can read selected VIC article there and comment without fear of being banned.
We're over 300 members now.
Feel free to join and share.
I've seen the page. Believe it or not, what they were doing was banning everyone on my network, not just me. We were all writing similar articles questioning the accuracy and pointing out how their articles were slanted towards their advertisers. We found out that we could still post if we hid our IP addresses or used different computers or smart phones.

Does that fall under the umbrella of "Freedom of the press"? Smells more like stinky gutter journalism (with "journalism" used very loosely).
They can do whatever they want and we as users cannot do anything about it.
Unless the plagiarize our work or slander our reputation. But as long as they
print slanted or inaccurate stories, I'll continue to point out their errors.
I love how HOVIC quietly slapped the GVI with yet another tax claim lawsuit, this one the biggest yet for $1.5 Billion says The Avis.
By the time this is over, Mapp and the 31st legislature will be wishing their predecessors had done the smart thing and agreed to the first deal offered by the ABR team. But the GVI and its legislature rarely do the smart thing and this will cost them big time.
Another brilliant move by Hess. Checkmate.
The GVI shouldn't have kicked the hornets nest but certain blowhard senators love to grandstand and started this fight.
Personally, I wouldn't necessarily want the territory to be driven into bankruptcy or some similar fate that might negatively affect my own situation.
But what I think ultimately is going to happen is that Hess will eventually agree to drop the lawsuits if the GVI drops all current and future economic and environmental damage claims against Hess/HOVIC/PDVSA and future owners of the refinery.
Hess now has huge leverage and has the GVI is over a barrel leaving ABR with a fresh start.
