If you think Obama and Hillary approved selling out Uranium One to Russia's state owned RosAtom was the only one, think again. Last year Saudi Arabia's state owned oil corporation Saudi Aramco was approved by the Obama administration of taking over America's biggest oil refinery, the Port Arthur refinery located in Texas. Selling out strategic natural resources to foreign states that abuse human rights and do not share American values of freedom and human rights should be barred.

Last time I checked, CNN or "Clinton news Network," or "counterfeit news network," or "cartoon news network," was considered to be fake news.

Why are you spreading fake news! Bad (or sick) guy!

the article doesn't say anything about the "selling out of American resources". It looks like Saudi Aramco bought out Royal Dutch Shell's interest and now owns 100% of the refinery, as opposed to the 50/50 arrangement between the two companies before the buy out. Nothing more, nothing less.

It must have been approved by the Obama administration considering this facility is on American soil, no?

There is no doubt the past administration was full of traitors.

Since when does the Executive Branch of the Federal Government "approve" or "disapprove" the transfer of stocks and/or the ownership and the sales or takeovers of corporations?

Not hard, really. Just call it an national security issue.

Ummmm. what is wrong with American companies owning our American resource businesses. I don't mind Canadians having some businesses here or places like Toyota owning a business here where they sell us their products they make here and employ our people. But a car company is different than an oil refinery, we could be at risk if they shut the refinery down.

This wasn't as government owned business so why the whine about Obama and Hillary? The ones you should be complaining about are the greedy SOB's that sold the refinery to the Saudis.

For the same reason they complain about outsourcing but don't complain about the investors here who profited from it. And complain about illegal immigration but still use illegal immigrants for cheap labor & goods. Their "outrage" is just a deflection while they keep making money.

I wonder how many U.S. companies own businesses in Saudi Arabia? Or Russia for that matter. I wonder if the Bush family was involved with the Texas sale somehow, they live in Texas and like the Saudis, best buds in the oil biz.

Since 1980 at least: 15 US Code S1, aka "the Sherman Act"

Every contract, combination in the form of trust or otherwise, or conspiracy, in restraint of trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations, is declared to be illegal. Every person who shall make any contract or engage in any combination or conspiracy hereby declared to be illegal shall be deemed guilty of a felony, and, on conviction thereof, shall be punished by fine not exceeding $100,000,000 if a corporation, or, if any other person, $1,000,000, or by imprisonment not exceeding 10 years, or by both said punishments, in the discretion of the court.

The Legislative Branch makes Federal Law. The Judicial Branch reviews Federal Law. The Executive Branch enforces Federal Law.

Shall we google some trump transactions and his subsidiaries going on as the president? And exxon transactions for our highest diplomatic official?

Or shall we google when the last time any executive branch personnel was fined or imprisoned for at least 10 year for brand promotions and overseas deals or calling a dictator a great guy due to brand affiliation in the Phillipines....

Was there something about the Aramco buy out of the Royal Dutch Shell Corporation's ownership shares that was in violation of federal law, some laws that the Executive Branch neglected to enforce?

Feel free.

More ammunition for you against the devil himself, manifested as a man named Donald J. Trump.

(For everyone else, that is redneck for "more rope to make that noose of partisanship from.")

I have no earthly idea. You wanted to know why the Executive Branch was allowed to review and override corporate transactions... I answered.

A large part of the economic problems we face today are, IMO, due to ignoring the Sherman Act and the Federal Trade Commission Act. There should never have been anyone "too big to fail."
