Deepwater-Gate

September 24, 2011 5:00 am 0 comments

A significant event has escaped serious media coverage.  Few are aware that, despite his posturing on deepwater drilling, President Obama has sunk billions of American taxpayer dollars into Petrobras, a nascent Brazilian oil exploration company.  Considering that President Obama consistently alleges deepwater drilling to be unsafe, this turn of events seems the ultimate ethical contradiction.  Moreover, it appears that President Obama coordinated this taxpayer-funded investment with a large stock acquisition by leftist billionaire and valued campaign-contributor George Soros.  Combined with Obama’s virulent attack on the US oil sector, culminating in a highly illegal ban on drilling, it would appear that Obama is misappropriating government funds to enrich a campaign financier, and possibly himself, with taxpayer dollars.  In fact, it is known that Mr. Soros positioned himself to begin reaping dividends just days before Obama announced the $2 billion US commitment to Petrobras.

More chilling still, are the recent reports that the oil obtained by Petrobras is promised to China, the nation that holds a majority of US debt and may have fired a missile within range of Los Angeles within the past year.  After speaking with Brig. Gen. Jim Cash (Ret.), former director of NORAD, this writer can confirm that the alleged “mystery missile” observed recently was indeed a missile.  Cash believes the missile to be Chinese, and most likely submarine-launched.

If current facts are any indicator, the Petrobras scam is as follows:  using his legal authority as president, Obama will divert all oil wealth from the Gulf of Mexico to Brazil, i.e. Petrobras, enriching a favored benefactor.  What does Obama gain from this generous favor?  It is logical to presume that whatever Obama gains will be of intrinsic value.  This gross abuse of power is so scandalous that it deserves a name:  Deepwater-gate.

Despite the scarce media coverage, aside from political pariah Glenn Beck, this scheme has run into a few snags:  the American courts are determined to protect the American people from this overt government malfeasance.  Several federal rulings countermanded the ban. But in total disregard for the law and the US Constitution, President Obama flaunted court rulings requiring a lift on the infamous drilling ban, reclassifying the ban and refusing to approve new drilling requests.

In stark contrast to the demagoguery surrounding the BP oil spill and fueling the Obama drilling ban, all deepwater rigs passed new safety inspections immediately following the BP disaster, and on a purely historical basis, accidents in that part of the Gulf have become exceedingly rare.  In all of Hurricane Katrina, only minor spills were reported, and certainly no accidents large enough to disrupt the economy.  If the drilling “moratorium” is allowed to survive, Texas energy sector employees will be hit hard.  Oil and natural gas extraction supports over 80,000 jobs in Texas alone, and a full 100,000 support jobs in related industries.  Surely President Obama and his officers wouldn’t intentionally create a scenario demanding the wholesale destruction of a lucrative, job-creating industry?  Surely, these seemingly connected events are all mere coincidence?

To quote former Secretary of Defense James Forrestal, “These men are not incompetent or stupid. If they were merely stupid, they would occasionally make a mistake in our favor.”

Remember the financial crisis?  The system was arguably designed to fail.  The Carter-era Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), combined with Clinton-era regulations requiring loans to patrons who could not pay, forced the creation of toxic financial instruments called subprime mortgages.  Banks and lending institutions faced lawsuits and bad marks from the Federal Reserve, threatening to curtail economic expansion into other markets, if they did not comply with these suicidal moves.  Then, when subprimes defaulted and caused the 2008 worldwide financial meltdown, the Democrats in Congress, who had opposed financial reform when it might have stopped the crash, rushed to offer big government takeovers as the solution to economic woes.

Americans are expected to forget that government institutions, i.e. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, were the underlying reason the financial contagion that consumed the savings of millions was even possible.  This is because mortgage-lending institutions were allowed to sell toxic loans to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, who then bundled these assets and sold them to eager investors.  And the Democrats reaped huge profits from this negligence.  President Obama and several of his economic advisors were top beneficiaries.  Should we now be surprised that Team Obama is running yet another scam, this time out of the White House?  After all, who is going to oppose “drilling safety” if given enough provocation, even if it means satisfying all domestic energy needs with foreign oil?

In point of fact, evidence exists that the prominent, Soros-funded Center for American Progress (CAP) fed the Obama Administration nearly every policy response to the Gulf-oil spill, and Team Obama followed these instructions to the letter.  When a campaign financier says “jump,” Obama says, “How high?”

As with any suspicious, illogical, or seemingly inexplicable problem, the answer is always to follow the money.  And Deepwater-gate has left quite a big trail.

    Govornment And Churches Are Overwhelmed – What Do We Do With The Orphans On The Border?

    We are facing a great disaster on the southern border of our nation, and how we react is going to have serious repercussions. First of all, we have to take care of these people. Churches and government are doing their best to help, but are overwhelmed.

    What is the best solution for this problem? For those children who have them, it would seem the best thing to do, would be to reunite them whether they are here legally or not. The problem is, that would send a message that illegal kids are welcomed here if their parents are here,

    Well then, maybe we should send them back to whoever was taking care of them. But can we trust the authorities down there? Once many years ago I was trying to help two street children.

    Is the American majority’s will to defend natural marriage against the rainbow of perverse counterfeits dead? Has America become a Judiciocracy ruled by a bevy of black-robed autocrats?

    Not if you ask the thousands who marched on Washington Thursday in this year’s “March for Marriage” rally. Not if you ask potential 2016 presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

    They took on the counter-constitutional idea of judicial supremacy. They defended true marriage.

    Juneteenth,The Oldest And Most-Recognized Observance Of The Demise Of Slavery In The US

    Washington, D.C. — On “Juneteenth,” the oldest and most-recognized observance of the demise of slavery in the United States, members of the Project 21 black leadership network are suggesting that black Americans make a personal assessment of how much freedom they actually enjoy these days and how they may be able to expand upon that freedom in the future through limits on government expansion.

    Juneteenth, an official holiday or observance in at least 40 states, is on June 19.

    “For what began as a celebration of black Americans’ release from chattel slavery, Juneteenth is important to remember today because all Americans forget at their peril that freedom doesn’t come for free,” said Project 21′s Stacy Swimp, a frequent speaker at and sponsor of past Juneteenth celebrations in Michigan.

    Blind Squirrel Finds A Supreme Court Nut

    While in the vast majority of their constitutionally related writings the Founding Fathers were explicit that the judicial branch of government is effectively the weakest of the three, such is not the case with today’s modern misapplication. Americans currently live under what is, for all intents and purposes, a counter-constitutional judiciocracy led by nine unelected, black-robed autocrats.

    Over many decades, the other two branches of government, the legislative and the executive, have, for some inexplicable reason, acquiesced to the notion of judicial supremacy – a dangerously dominant concept that erroneously regards the United States Supreme Court as the final arbiter of all things public policy. If this is so, then these nine men and women are ultimately unaccountable to anyone or anything, and the other two branches of government are but toothless figurehead bodies merely spinning their wheels while spending our dollars.

    Atheist Group Calls For ‘Booing,’ ‘Blowing Raspberries’ To Disrupt Prayer

    In an unhinged response to Monday’s Supreme Court decision in Greece v. Galloway – which reaffirmed Americans’ First Amendment right to public prayer, to include sectarian prayer – the always entertaining Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has announced its retaliatory “path forward” for Christ-haters.

    Saul Alinsky would be proud.

    On its website, the Christophobic FFRF, headquarter in Madison, Wisconsin, posted a member essay calling the High Court’s decision, “disastrous for state-church separation,” and frantically warned, “This decision could be the equivalent of Dred Scott or Plessy for our [anti-Christian] cause.”

    The Supreme Court’s infamous Dred Scott and Plessy v. Ferguson decisions, of course, upheld slavery and racial segregation respectively. This is richly ironic considering that groups like the FFRF, the ACLU,
