Libyan Coalition Falling Apart While The Obama’s Party On

by lewwaters

As if we need any further proof of the ineptness of Barack Obama sitting at the top of our country, is ill-advised attack on Libya, after dawdling away for weeks as Libyan rebels were decimated by the forces of Libyan leader, Moammar Gadhafi, a report from the UK Daily Times tells us much of what our own Blamestream Media does not.

Who’s in charge? Germans pull forces out of NATO as Libyan coalition falls apart

Of note at the beginning of the article,

• Tensions with Britain as Gates rebukes UK government over suggestion Gaddafi could be assassinated
• French propose a new political ‘committee’ to oversee operations
• Germany pulls equipment out of NATO coalition over disagreement over campaign’s direction
• Italians accuse French of backing NATO in exchange for oil contracts
• No-fly zone called into question after first wave of strikes ‘neutralises’ Libyan military machine
• U.K. ministers say war could last ‘30 years’
• Italy to ‘take back control’ of bases used by allies unless NATO leadership put in charge of the mission
• Russians tell U.S. to stop bombing in order to protect civilians – calls bombing a ‘crusade’

ABC News soft shoes the situation with U.S. Ready to Hand Over Libya Lead, But Who Will Take It? leaving out all of the mentions of the deepening divide over the unrest on future leadership of the action.

Obama Proposes Trading Batteries for Brazilian Oil Instead of Drilling Our Own

by lewwaters

The economy remains in a shamble, gas prices continue to rise, millions remain out of work and competing for scarce jobs and Obama flies off to Rio de Janeiro to somehow “help boost U.S. jobs” while starting a third war in the Middle East. Why should I be surprised to read of him also offering a cockamamie idea of trading batteries for Brazil’s oil, while also advocating t hat we need to end our reliance on foreign oil?

Nothing the man has done yet as president has made any sense, but this one even boggles my imagination. Speaking at a CEO Business Summit in Brasilia, Brazil March 19, 2011, on the day he launched the Libyan War, Obama said,

“In the United States, we’ve jumpstarted a clean energy industry and we’ll soon have the capacity to produce 40 percent of the world’s advanced batteries. If we can start sharing these new technologies, and leverage private investment from businesses like the ones in this room, we can grow our economies and clean our environment by making, using, trading, selling clean energy products all over the world.”

U.N. Rapporteur To Probe Affordable Housing In U.S.

by lewwaters

Raquel Rolnik, a professor of urban planning at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil will be touring first New York then 6 other cities and will “report” back to the U.N. about housing rights violations and advances within the U.S.

Rolnik plans to “hear the voices of those who are suffering on the ground,” in the U.S.

Shouldn’t Ms. Rolnik be more concerned about the poor housing and poverty within her native Brazil, before she attempts to “teach” us?

Brazil Housing

Has Obama begun ceding our sovereignty to the United Nations now?
