Evil Oil Companies and Corrupt Politics

If one needs to feed one's conspiracy theory-addled brain, read this article from Powerline.

Apparently, Brazil, is going gangbusters to develop an oil field in the oceans off of its coast. I have no problem with that. However, it came out in the news a while back that either the stimulus, or the new budget or one of the $trillion wonders that have come out of Congress and this White House, included a subsidy for Brazil to drill for oil off of its shores.

That's right, U.S. taxpayers are helping fund Brazil's drilling for oil off of the coast of Brazil. Meanwhile, these same politicians make it impossible for the U.S. to drill for oil on our own coasts, within our own borders, or develop the abundance of natural gas we have under our soil.

All of this is bad enough, but when you find out that George Soros is a major investor in the company that stands to profit from Brazil's oil prosperity and he is the main agitator in Democrat politics, then things just turn ugly.

I won't go into a long tirade on this one just yet. I want to verify the Brazil oil drilling subsidy first. Tick tick tick tick tick.....

UPDATE: Here it is. From August 25th in the WSJ. Petrobas, is being subsidized by the U.S. taxpayer. No. Let me rephrase that. George Soros, is being subsidized by the U.S. Taxpayer.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin and Gateway Pundit were on to this back in August and connected all of the dots already. I can't go a day without blowing my lid on this administration and this congress.

UPDATE: I guess the only "news" here is that the Washington Post finally reported on this on Monday. Of course they "forgot" to mention that we are subsidizing this effort to the tune of $2 billion or more in taxpayer money...oh, yeah, and they are four months late on the story. You know, conveniently out of the hustle and bustle when everyone was agitated at congress for spending too much money. We certainly wouldn't want to incite anger at our government for being corrupt during the reign of Democrats. WaPo is disgusting.
