US Import-Export Bank gives $2 billion to Brazil to drill for oil. WHAT? UPDATE – Sarah Palin Responds!

Posted by iusbvision on August 21, 2009

We could be using this money to drill here. Check this out. Number one far left Democrat money man George Soros owns 811 million dollars worth of the company our government is loaning the money to. So it looks like Soros is getting the millions he spent on influencing government back courtesy of the US taxpayer.

Sarah Palin:


Today’s Wall Street Journal contains some puzzling news for all Americans who are impacted by high energy prices and who share the goal of moving us toward energy independence.

For years, states rich with an abundance of oil and natural gas have been begging Washington, DC politicians for the right to develop their own natural resources on federal lands and off shore. Such development would mean good paying jobs here in the United States (with health benefits) and the resulting royalties and taxes would provide money for federal coffers that would potentially off-set the need for higher income taxes, reduce the federal debt and deficits, or even help fund a trillion dollar health care plan if one were so inclined to support such a plan.

So why is it that during these tough times, when we have great needs at home, the Obama White House is prepared to send more than two billion of your hard-earned tax dollars to Brazil so that the nation’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, can drill off shore and create jobs developing its own resources? That’s all Americans want; but such rational energy development has been continually thwarted by rabid environmentalists, faceless bureaucrats and a seemingly endless parade of lawsuits aimed at shutting down new energy projects.

I’ll speak for the talent I have personally witnessed on the oil fields in Alaska when I say no other country in the world has a stronger workforce than America, no other country in the world has better safety standards than America, and no other country in the world has stricter environmental standards than America. Come to Alaska to witness how oil and gas can be developed simultaneously with the preservation of our eco-system. America has the resources. We deserve the opportunity to develop our resources no less than the Brazilians. Millions of Americans know it is true: “Drill, baby, drill.” Alaska is proof you can drill and develop, and preserve nature, with its magnificent caribou herds passing by the Trans Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS), completely unaffected. One has to wonder if Obama is playing politics and perhaps refusing a “win” for some states just to play to the left with our money.

The new Gulf of Mexico lease sales tomorrow sound promising and perhaps will move some states in the right direction, but we all know that the extreme environmentalists who serve to block progress elsewhere, including in Alaska, continue to block opportunities. These environmentalists are putting our nation in peril and forcing us to rely on unstable and hostile foreign countries. Mr. Obama can stop the extreme tactics and exert proper government authority to encourage resource development and create jobs and health benefits in the U.S.; instead, he chooses to use American dollars in Brazil that will help to pay the salaries and benefits for Brazilians to drill for resources when the need and desire is great in America.

Buy American is a wonderful slogan, but you can’t say in one breath that you want to strengthen our economy and stimulate it, and then in another ship our much-needed dollars to a nation desperate to drill while depriving us of the same opportunity.

    I cannot even read this without vomiting. Who authorized this money?? Congress or the White House?? This presidency and out of control congress is nothing but shuck and jive. The arrogance of Obama and congress and their headlong run into communism/Marxism makes me sick. Obama, from his actions has shown himself to be a Muslim Marxist!! What else can I conclude?? You tell me readers. He avoids the national prayer breakfast or was it the national day of prayer or was it both but dashes to the ramadan feast at the end of the month when more food is consumed than in any other month except it is consumed in the dark hours. OMG, what have we voted in to be our president?? He is NOT my president. I believe him to be an imposter, an interloper, a Manchurian Candidate. He is hiding behind skin color as his protection, if Hillary was elected she would not have been able to get away with 10% of what this dude has beeen able to get away with. I don’t care if the president is green, I do, however, want him to be an American!!! Is that too much to ask?? So it is not about the environment as I have long known. It is about destroying America! The environmental movement is the new home of the communist party USA. Wake up America and let’s take out country back. Let’s make November 2010 a month which shall live in infamy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So you want this rouge communist government to control your health care do you??? WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
