Obama Admin Loaned $2 Billion To Brazilian Company For Offshore Oil Wells But Halted US Drilling In GulfPosted: 22 March, 2011
Republican Senator David Vitter of Louisiana is questioning how the United States has benefited from a $2-billion loan the United States made to a Brazilian oil company for its offshore drilling operations.
Senator Vitter is entirely right in questioning a loan which carries with it such utter hypocrisy.
I have followed the ongoing battle of the labor unions vs. Governor Scott Walker and the people of Wisconsin closely. I have researched it quite thoroughly, even traveling to Madison Wisconsin with my son to observe the street protests, speak with the people and interview protesters. This fight – and the ongoing stories which surround it – aren’t going away anytime soon.
This battle will continue to spread to other states and other unions as courageous Republican governors elected in the most overwhelming mid term election mandate since 1938 fight powerful public employee labor unions in an attempt to reverse massive budget deficits and apocalyptic levels of public debt which plague virtually every state in America. I’m going to continue providing insight as this unfolds, and as I uncover more. It’s just too important not to.
Today I’ll illustrate the hypocrisy and indefensible positions that these unions maintain with this video of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly interviewing the president of the Milwaukee teachers union.
Kelly asked Wisconsin teacher’s union president Mike Langyel if he condoned teachers using phony doctors’ notes to get out of work to attend union protests in the state capitol. Langyel is just another union thug who refuses to answer questions about union tactics. In that he is unable to defend union positions he proves – yet again – that the union positions are indefensible.
Democrats in Congress say they have grown frustrated with Obama because of his lack of leadership in their ongoing battle with Republicans over spending cuts, but with nothing in Obama’s career to suggest that he is one for political rough riding, it is odd for Democrats to express dismay that Obama isn’t leading the charge.
Startling is the best way I can find to describe the results of a just published poll conducted by Scientific American Magazine. You’d think – as I always have – that the readers and followers of Scientific American are a bunch of egg heads with a broad understanding of most things scientific. Additionally, since the magazine has for years been called a schill for Al Gore and the rest of the global warming alarmist crowd, that the readers would have a stranglehold on understanding just how bad the global warming crisis really is.

Madison Wisconsin. (February 28) The call went out far and wide for massive protests to stand with the unions in Wisconsin. Every liberal, socialist, communist, Marxist, anarchist and left winggroup in the country sent – and answered – the call. I have been watching in rapt fascination as a little known governor from an often overlooked state is honoring campaign promises he made when he was elected in November to balance the budget in Wisconsin. In fulfilling his promises, a rare and honorable thing among politicians, Wisconsin has become a battle over far more than a state budget. Read the rest of this entry »
