CNS

The White House announced the federal government will spend $6 billion over four years for a “sustainable energy future” plan with Asian countries that involves loaning tax dollars to other countries to increase their purchasing power for U.S. technology, services and equipment.

“Recognizing that energy and the environment are among the most pressing issues confronting our region, President Obama, in partnership with Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei and President of the Republic of Indonesia Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, today proposed the U.S.-Asia Pacific Comprehensive Partnership for a Sustainable Energy Future,” the White House announced Tuesday as Obama visits Asian Pacific countries.

    Might as well flush that $6 billion down the toilet because China, India, and Indonesia aren’t going to be stupid enough to tear down their power infrastructure and replace it with mirrors and pinwheels like the stupid people who run the West are trying to do.

    Screw it. Just open up Ft. Knox and let anybody and everybody take what they want until it’s all gone. We might as well flush the whole damn thing down the toilet now. Get it the hell over with already. Not a big fan of this slow bleed strategy.

    This is his bailout plan for Solyndra, Abound Solar, A123 Systems, and many many more. Double down with our money, only through an Asian intermediary. That way the lap dog media won’t make the connection.

    His theft our money makes Jon Corzine and Bernie Madoff look like pikers in comparison.

    does it make sense to loan a country ( Brunei) money that is making money hand over fist from exporting oil? half their revenue comes from oil and gas. And the Sultan of Brunei is one of the world’s wealthiest people. Seems they would have enough of their own money to invest in green energy sources if it made any economic sense. But why waste their own they can use ours? Jeesh can obuma get any more blunt with his total disregard for using my tax dollars wisely?

    @AvgDude, “mirrors and pinwheels”…pretty much describes the whole administration.

    This is a farce…and not surprising in the least.
