Dear Steve..

I’m sending along an email sent to me by a good friend, thought you might be interested. Subject:  Obama for Offshore Drilling in Brazil-2 FACED PHONY OBAMA
What hypocrisy
    Obama underwrites off shore oil drilling in BRAZIL .
  This is a perfect example why many refrain from watching the news on
 Today on a segment of the “Glen Beck Show” on FOX (Fox Cable News) was
 the following:
 “Today, even though President Obama is against off shore drilling for
 our country, he signed an executive order to loan 2 Billion of our
 taxpayers dollars to a Brazilian Oil Exploration Company (which is the
 8th largest company in the entire world) to drill for oil off the
 coast of Brazil ! The oil that comes from this operation is for the
 sole purpose and use of  China  and NOT THE  USA  ! Now here’s the
 real clincher…the Chinese government is under contract to purchase
 all the oil that this oil field will produce, which is hundreds of
 millions of barrels of oil”.
 We have absolutely no gain from this transaction whatsoever!
Wait, it gets more interesting.
 Guess who is the largest individual  stockholder of this Brazilian Oil
 Company and who would benefit most  from this? It is American
 BILLIONAIRE, George Soros, who  was one of President Obama’s most
 generous financial supporter during his campaign.
 If you are able to connect the dots and follow the money, you are
 probably as upset as I am. Not a word of this transaction was
 broadcast on any of the other news networks!
Forward this factual e-mail to others who care about this country and
 where it is going. Also, let all of your Government representatives
 know how you feel about this.
  Below is the Wall street Journal article to confirm this.


Dear Sandie,
Thank you for sending me this news item with your quote from the Glenn Beck program and the link from the Wall Street Journal. If this information is all true, it certainly exposes the hypocrisy and weakness of the Obama administration. I’m passing it on to the others readers of this blog to consider.
These segments report that Obama issued an executive order to give $2 billion to develop a Brazilian oil field so the Brazilians can send oil exports to China. If true, this is a very craven act by Obama. Since these reports indicate no useful payback for the USA in this “investment” of US dollars to help Brazil, this raises more questions that Obama is a weak person who may be submitting to “backdoor” Chinese blackmail demands to further assist China while weakening the USA. I hope that is not the case, but abject stupidity would seem to be the only other explanation for such a dumb decision.
The hypocrisy of the US government opposing off-shore oil drilling near US coasts while subsiding Brazilian efforts to do off-shore oil drilling to provide oil for China is almost beyond words. Another question is whether the inept US Congress will ever wake up and realize the Obama administration is marginalizing the Congress so it no longer has a meaningful role in the US government. All money bills are supposed to originate in the US Congress and be implemented by the President after Congress approves federal expenditures. The US Constitution gives no authority to US presidents to spend money without a prior appropriation from Congress. If these reports are true, it appears that Obama is trying to seize all power for himself and defy both the Constitution and the US Congress. Since Pelosi and Reid and the Democrats run Congress, it is not likely that this Congress will defend either the Constitution or even its own authority as an independent branch of government. One can only hope that the nation can survive until the November elections, where all current indications are that the US voters will deliver a stinging rebuke to Obama and the radicals who have seized control of the machinery of the US government.
