Skip to comments.Did Obama bribe Brazil with $2 billion to help put Hondurasís Zelaya back into power?

Something smells fishy. First the Obama administration announces $2 billion of financial support for Brazils offshore drilling efforts. And a month later Brazil spirits legally deposed Honduran President Manuel Zelaya back into the country, granting him sanctuary in its embassy. Are these two stories related?
First from the Wall Street Journal, August 18, headlined Obama Underwrites Offshore Drilling:
The U.S. is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil's state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery....
And from Reuters yesterday, headlined Lula faces criticism in Brazil over Honduras role:
BRASILIA, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Brazil's government is facing growing criticism at home over its handling of the Honduran crisis as senior lawmakers accuse it of allowing the ousted president to use its embassy as a political platform.

And Rio will back out at the last minute and give Chicago the Olympics!
Is this a trick question?
Obama lending our money for off-shore drilling sounds fishy period.
I think the $2 billion dollar drilling “loan” was to repay Soros. But the use of the Brazilian embassy to give Zelaya an in-country platform to foment revolution might be a way of saying thanks. There is no doubt 0bama supports the wannabe dictator.
I wouldn’t be surprised. We’re all Marxists now.
“I think the $2 billion dollar drilling loan was to repay Soros”
I wish someone would ask where the Kenyan got the two billion?
Who authorized the spending? What executive power allows him to spend two billion?
Maybe... but Obama may have hit a two-bagger since one of the major investors in Petrobras [$800 million worth of stock] is George Soros.
Question - are there now more crooks in Washington DC or does Chicago still hold the title??
Interesting coincidence or legitimate collusion?
sounds very fishy.
I’d like to know that too. The President doesn’t operate the Treasury.
Can we find a 20 year old posing as a hooker and a 20- something videographer to get some Brazilian on tape explaining how Barry bribed authorities to take a fall so Chicago can get the Olympics? 00ou think FOX would play it?
I'm with you. I haven't heard a single word on that.
why should we pay for brazils offshore drilling? needs congressional investigation...we need to make gov justify spending....
that was obama’s bill not ours....we dont owe soros anything
That is a difficult equation worthy of those schooled in higher mathematics.
How many ChiTown crooks have relocated to DC? How many DC crooks now have a place at the ChiTown piggie trough that didn't before? How many now operate out of both centers of corruption? How many have been brought in from outside that now work within one or both circles?
Good question. Where did the $2 B come from and who authorized it??
I swear there are so many “deals” floating around this corrupt administration, it’s hard to keep track.
