Did Obama bribe Brazil with $2 billion to help put Hondurasís Zelaya back into power?
Island Turtle ^ | September 30, 2009 | Corky Boyd

Something smells fishy. First the Obama administration announces $2 billion of financial support for Brazil’s 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.

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 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?

The answer to the question in the headline is.....

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??

I’d like to know that too. The President doesn’t operate the Treasury.

Hey Obambi, why don't we give them the Olympics in ‘16 as a consolation prize?

Question - are there now more crooks in Washington DC or does Chicago still hold the title??

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?

Did I say "we" did? Also, what bill are you referring to? I am not aware that any bill was used to transfer our tax dollars to Brazil. That question was raised earlier in the thread.

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.
