Slowwitted US Agency Responds to Governor Palin’s Assault

Wednesday, August 19, 2009 0 Responses

With all do respect, Governor Palin’s point is rather simple: Why are we investing in and contracting with more foreign corporations & countries to provide energy for the US? The real reason is Øbama is the worst type of hypocrite which makes him dangerous and very anti-American.

On-the-one-hand, he thinks he is attempting to appease the crazy environmentalists while supplying the US with more of its energy needs. 1st, with out a doubt the Brazilians will do more harm to the environment than any US corporation. 2nd, states like CA, ND, AK and others have large untapped oil reserves and with the CA’s & US deficit crisis we are investing in Brazil and Brazilian corporations for energy? Once again Øbama is spending tax payers money with absolutely no regard for the future as all good liberals do.

As we all are aware, Drilling at home creates thousands of jobs, we become less dependent on foreign sources of energy & safer and US dollars and revenue stay in the US. As anyone with common sense knows the point was to drill at home. So once again, Governor Palin is 100% correct.

Here we have 2 Bank spokesman, Phil Cogan and an unnamed administrator, speaking to Politico:

The bank does not rely on tax money and that Palin's statement ignores the bank's central function: To lend money to foreign companies for the purchase of American goods and services. Governor Palin’s comments were primarily targeting Øbama & cronies and than this tax-funded US corporation.

"It has to be produced by U.S. workers," Cogan said. Palin's statement refers to "creating jobs and health benefits in the U.S." "That's exactly what a purchase financed by the U.S. government would do," Cogan said. “The loan would likely finance engineering services, sales of ships to service oil platforms, or drilling equipment. This is the government doing what it's supposed to do: Create jobs and make sure that Americans get a fair shot at selling goods and services — not the British or the French or anyone else — and to help American workers compete on a level playing field"

The unnamed administration official had this to say: "This is like her and her death panels. “This is one more example of, 'Let's take a situation with a kernel of truth and blow it up and not let the facts ruin a good story.”

The answer is drill at home dummy and, next time please have someone read Governor Palin’s editorial to you. I also thought he had a great Barney Franks response.

Gov Palin: Obama Sending Billions Overseas To Appease Environmentalists

“Your Tax Dollars Hard At Work: 1st Cars, Now Foreign Oil”


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.
