Did a search and only the old stories about this deal came up.


Two export pacts a coup for Beijing

The United States wants it, but China is getting it. Less than a month after President Obama visited Brazil in March to make a pitch for oil, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff was off to Beijing to sign oil contracts with two huge state-owned Chinese companies.

Washinton Times

So after spending $2 Billion of taxpayer dollars on Petrobras, the taxpayer loses out to china and George Soros. If you recall GS had about $5.8 million is preffered shares of PB. He then sold those shares after Petrobras' shares went up after said deal.

George Soros and Petrobras

This is like Solyndra, this madness needs to stop in November.

To all ATS members who vote right/right center, I implore you to please help vote Obama out. If Ron Paul does not get the nomination, then I ask the RP supporters to get behind the person running against Obama in the General election. I don't want Romney to be pres, but I'll get behind him because I'd rather have him than Obama.

Obuma already paid Brazil a hefty bribe for that oil. I hope this is brought to the mainstream and soon. I thought it was a raw deal then to give those billions of dollars to Brazil, when we have oil here at home, but Obuma won't sign the permits for it.

Plus, Brazil yesterday got a multi billion contract to make air craft for our U.S. Airforce, instead of the factory in Kentucky that underbid Brazil for the contract.

Brazilian Company Gets Air Force Contract

You would think that at least aircraft for the US Air Force could still be manufactured by American companies. But not with the first Post-American President at the helm:

Brazil’s Embraer won a contract to build counterinsurgency aircraft for the U.S. Air Force. Beating out U.S.-based Hawker Beechcraft, Embraer will provide America with 20 A-29 Super Tucano light attack aircraft, as well as support services for missions, as part of the $355 million deal. …

Hawker Beechcraft, partially owned by Goldman Sachs, filed suit with the Court of Federal Claims, saying that it had been excluded from the bidding for the contract.

Haven’t they heard? Goldman Sachs is on the outs, despite the revolving door between it and the White House. With an election coming up, Comrade Obama has to distance himself from greedy capitalists.

I didn't know about this new deal with Brazil, This is worrisome. I have no idea what Obama's plan is, but he's alienating his own people. the labor unions are angry over the Keystone pipeline. I'm sure they wont be happy about this if those workers in Kentucky are unionized.

ETA: That plane looks pretty low-tech for counterinsurgency, especially since we have so many drones for that job already. maybe they cost less than a drone? Might as well bring back the P-51D mustang and retrofit it.

Here's the scoop-o-poop on the plane deal...


Did Obama award Air Force plane contract to “Air Solyndra”?

Western Journalism

Without telling anyone but Embraer, the Brazilian company he has decided to give the contract to, Barack “transparency” Obama has bypassed an American company and shutdown any further bidding on a project to build Light Air Support (LAS) planes for the Air Force.

Given the Obama Administration’s penchant for double talk and outright lying it’s no wonder Hawker Beechcraft a Kansas air ship building company was snubbed. In Obama’s world building American really doesn’t count for much except as a phrase to use when talking to union members whose votes and money he needs. Since Hawker is a heavily unionized company the answer to the question of this contract award must be something else.

Embraer: An Obama kind of operation

Aside from the underhandedness of not telling Hawker that the bidding was closed on Dec 22, (an SOP for these people) Embraer is a typical Obama like bag of crap; just the kind of shady outfit Obama likes to deal with.

The Brazilian government controls Embraer so we have to keep Obama’s gifts of our money to Brazil’s oil exploration industry in mind. Moreover, the otherwise disinterested Securities and Exchange Commission is actually investigating Embraer for violating the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Not surprisingly this statute deals with foreign entities bribing their way to “gain or retain business.”

It gets worse

As if it were not bad enough that Obama “selected” Embraer over Hawker in typical secretive fashion, a look at the facts reveals that the Brazilians have an American partner; Sierra Nevada Corp. a plane manufacturer with corporate headquarters in Sparks Nevada.

If this wasn’t so obviously a scam it would be funny. Sparks Nevada is a Harry Reid piggy bank. He is so in-your-face about his corruption and its connection to Sparks he even has a story on his web site about Sparks using solar energy to save “$40,000 a year. This sounds great until you read further and discover the “savings” come at the expense of Nevada taxpayers who are financing this “great saving” with nearly a million dollars of their money.

So what happened? How did an American firm lose out to a corrupt foreign company in a competition to win a contract to build United States Air Force planes? The short answer may very well be illegal political contributions.

Sending money to a company in Harry Reid’s backyard makes getting some of it back a lot easier than sending it to known crooks in Brazil. They might bet on Obama losing the election and just keep it.

Standby, Air Solyendra is about to take off.

That's pretty bad. Typical that harry Reid Wouldn't be far behind, and I wonder if Nanci's name is on the shareholder list for Sierra.

like I said, this madness needs to end very soon.
