**Welcome Hot Air and Fox Nation readers!**

Perhaps this is why drilling in Alaska is off the table–it would actually keep America safe and strong and won’t make Obama Boss George Soros even richer than he is now.

Interestingly, it seems the more trouble we have, the better it is for Soros. Last year, Soros noted he was “having a very good crisis” having bet against the United States and profiting from her economic downturn.

Now we learn Soros is set to be one of the biggest beneficiaries of the Gulf oil catastrophe. With Obama’s ‘moratorium’ and the Obama Admin’s general hostility to drilling, it’s reported many oil companies have already looked into with Brazil regarding a move those shores. And what is Soros principally invested in right now? Petrobras, the Brazilian state oil company.

Obama’s Boss Sees Silver Lining in BP Spill

Reuters is reporting that Brazil stands to benefit from the BP oil spill catastrophe as the US moratorium makes more rigs available for other countries.

Even as an ecological catastrophe makes the future of U.S. offshore drilling less certain, Brazil is plowing ahead with a $220 billion five-year plan to tap oil fields even deeper than BP’s ill-fated Gulf well, which is still leaking crude.

It’s estimated that thirty five rigs are now sitting idle in the Gulf of Mexico. Brazil is already getting inquiries from companies wanting to move their rigs there. Brazil’s state oil company, Petrobras already produces about a fourth of the world’s deep water oil…

The shortage of rigs could help Brazil become a major oil exporter.

What an amazing stroke of good fortune for Obama’s boss, unrepentant Nazi collaborator, George Soros! Soros is also invested in offshore oil drilling in Brazil, assisted by the American taxpayers.

Soros Fund Management, LLC holds a stake in Petrobras of approximately $900 million as of December 31, 2009.

George Soros’ principal investments are in oil; one in particular is Petrobras, the Brazilian-owned company. This happens to be the largest investment in the Soros portfolio at the present time.

Soros also owns quite a lot of real estate in Brazil. Soros’ Adecoagro, which invests in renewable energy, owns or leases about 840,000 acres of farmland in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay growing coffee, soybeans and other commodities. Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Bunge Ltd. Are also expanding into ethanol in Brazil.

When you get to boss the president around, you never have to let a good crisis go to waste.

UPDATE: Dan in comments reminded me of the $2 billion loan deal Obama made to Brazil last year, furthering the connection between Obama, our tax dollars, and Soros’ business. here’s the WSJ’s take on the matter on August 18, 2009

Obama Underwrites Offshore Drilling
Too bad it’s not in U.S. waters.

You read that headline correctly. Unfortunately, the Obama Administration is financing oil exploration off Brazil.

The U.S. is going to lend billions of dollars to Brazil’s state-owned oil company, Petrobras, to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil’s Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro. Brazil’s planning minister confirmed that White House National Security Adviser James Jones met this month with Brazilian officials to talk about the loan.

The U.S. Export-Import Bank tells us it has issued a “preliminary commitment” letter to Petrobras in the amount of $2 billion and has discussed with Brazil the possibility of increasing that amount. Ex-Im Bank says it has not decided whether the money will come in the form of a direct loan or loan guarantees. Either way, this corporate foreign aid may strike some readers as odd, given that the U.S. Treasury seems desperate for cash and Petrobras is one of the largest corporations in the Americas.

    Obama’s master…

  2. makeshifty says:

    I had similar thoughts. Why does anyone think that just because the U.S. bans drilling in its waters that it prevents drilling in the nearby oceans? They forget that other countries will go on allowing it, expanding their drilling. More oil for them to control. It also doesn’t prevent similar rig disasters from happening. It’s just that if they happen it’ll be up to the other countries to clean it up. Oh I’m sure our government will offer to come along and help…

    although one can quite feasibly buy one’s way into hell, once you get there there’s nothing to spend all that blood money on- and the way out is no longer available for purchase.

    for all the talk of evil corporations and the necessity of ‘ spreading the wealth’ around- why is soros exempt from critique? his market manipulations are based on disaster and misery prevailing- the very suffering the marxists pretend to be all broken up about. is it because he bought the black messiah the presidency/caliphate of the United Submissive States?

    Obama just loaned brazil 2 Billion dollars last August
    for drilling..

      Great reminder Dan, I’ll get that link from last year into the post.

    • larrygeary says:

      I was just about to remind everyone of that. $2 billion of our tax dollars to help Brazil develop their offshore oil fields while ours are deliberately locked up. This administration is committing the greatest act of theft in human history. This will not end well, or quietly.

    Also, our largest meat packing plants have been bought out of bankruptcy by someone in Brazil… We could face food shortages at the rate we are going… Goes right with the Michelle diet and all the calls for not eating meat. There is something up…

    Tammy,

    As I’ve been following the Oil Disaster I ran across this video from a Louisiana citizen at the Gulf Emergency Summit. Like myself, I thought other Tammy listeners might be interested as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkYJDI8pK9Y&feature=player_embedded

    I appreciate all the hard coverage you’ve given for the spill, as many other media agency’s wont touch the difficult issues.
