The Politics of OMG WTF?

While most eyes are on the health care debate/kabuki in Washington, there are other weird, nefarious goings on that deserve our attention in our nation’s Capitol…it would appear that Obama is much more concerned with “saving the environment”, than with saving jobs:

For instance:

The Politico: Stimulus money goes overseas

Senate Democrats are furious that the vast majority of grants from the clean-energy program from last year’s stimulus have been awarded to foreign companies.

Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer of New York, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Jon Tester of Montana announced Wednesday a new initiative to require the “Buy America” provision of the stimulus to all programs, not just the government ones. A study done by the Investigative Reporting Workshop found that 79 percent of the $2 billion in clean-energy grants allocated since Sept. 1, 2009, has gone to foreign wind companies.

Nearly half of the $2.4 billion in federal grant money awarded Wednesday to stimulate the U.S. economy and boost the production of hybrid and electric vehicles went to six companies with ties to places as far away as Russia, China, South Korea and France.

WTF?

When Obama  has even the Dems like Chuckie Schumer furious about his  policies, you know they must be pretty freaking bad.

Then there’s this:

Chris Horner: BREAKING: ‘Anti-Lobbyist’ Obama Administration Recruited Left-Wing Lobbyists to Sell Bogus ‘Green Jobs’:

After two studies refuted President Barack Obama’s assertions regarding the success of Spain’s and Denmark’s wind energy programs, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request reveals the Department of Energy turned to George Soros and to wind industry lobbyists to attack the studies.

Via the FOIA request, the Competitive Enterprise Institute has learned that the Department of Energy — specifically the office headed by Al Gore’s company’s former CEO, Cathy Zoi — turned to George Soros’ Center for American Progress and other wind industry lobbyists to help push Obama’s wind energy proposals.

The FOIA request was not entirely complied with, and CEI just filed an appeal over documents still being withheld. In addition to withholding many internal communications, the administration is withholding communications with these lobbyists and other related communications, claiming they constitute “inter-agency memoranda.” This implies that, according to the DoE, wind industry lobbyists and Soros’s Center for American Progress are — for legal purposes — extensions of the government.

This is a defense commonly employed against FOIA requests when seeking to withhold certain communications with, for example, paid consultants.

As candidate and president, on eight separate occasions Barack Obama instructed Americans to “think about what’s happening in countries like Spain [and] Germany” if they wanted to know what successful “green jobs” policies look like, and if they wanted to know what we should expect here in the U.S. from his agenda.

Some European economists took a look.

Read the whole thing…it turns out these green jobs initiatives were economic failures, so what does Obama do? Read the whole thing. It’s almost like Van Jones is still advising him.

OMG.

And I reported on this earlier, today: Shock: White House To Seize More Than 10 Million Acres

Senator Jim DeMint is alerting the public to a recently discovered secret administration memo which reveals plans for the federal government to seize more than 10 million acres from Montana to New Mexico! The move would halt “job- creating activities like ranching, forestry, mining and energy development” and lead to  a drying up tax revenue essential for the funding of schools, firehouses and community centers.

A secret administration memo has surfaced revealing plans for the federal government to seize more than 10 million acres from Montana to New Mexico, halting job- creating activities like ranching, forestry, mining and energy development. Worse, this land grab would dry up tax revenue that’s essential for funding schools, firehouses and community centers.

DeMint claims Obama could enact the plan in the memo with just a stroke of the pen.

He tried to prevent the land grab, last evening:

His amendment failed  by a vote of 58-38.

WTF?

  1. And when does Obama suspend all elections, and pronounce himself president for life? For the love of God America wake up. We are so close to socialist/marxist government, it might be too late to stop it. Chavez must be advising our president.

  7. Somethings got to be done. This land grab has to be the next move in securing land for the NAFTA Super Highway! Thought that had gone away? Think again people! Its just gone underground until the Patriot Senator DeMint revealed this. The plan is to divide the country east and west making it easier for the takeover by the white house. Check out the locations of the FEMA camps and there closeness to this grabbed land and you’ll see what I mean!

    Is Patriot Senator DeMint connecting the dots? I sure hope so!

  8. “And when does Obama suspend all elections, and pronounce himself president for life? For the love of God America wake up. We are so close to socialist/marxist government, it might be too late to stop it. Chavez must be advising our president.”

    That’s an easy one.

    Give him another year and change. Right before campaigning for his “re-election”, it wouldn’t surprise me if another terrorist incident (I use that term loosely, giving as how the 3-ring circus of chimpanzees that occupy the Obama took 6 months to correctly label the Fort Hood massacre what it was after dodging the issue: a terrorist act) magically appears out of thin air and Obama rides it like a hero to re-election.

    After that, and after spending the prior 3 years introducing little bills into Congress that gradually erode what little civil liberties we have left, his little quasi-Hugo Chavez “President for Life” proclamation followed by his “National Civil Police” initative will come to be.

    Then the real fun begins.
