Well America, lets follow-up on the Keystone Pipeline, which of course was rejected by The Anointed one, there by flushing thousands of job down the toilet and surfacing in China, no kidding what’s new you might say. A $355 million contract to Brazil. Yes Brazil. The very same country that the Obama administration gave 2 billion dollars to for the to finance exploration of the huge offshore discovery in Brazil's Tupi oil field in the Santos Basin near Rio de Janeiro.
(The Independent Sentinel) Brazil will allegedly employ some U.S. suppliers and create 1200 jobs in the U.S. The awarding of this contract is an attempt to strengthen relations with Brazil. Read about it here: U.S. military aircraft contract goes to Iran’s friend while U.S. companies were not allowed to bid. The recently elected President of Brazil is Dilma Vana Rousseff of the Workers Party (Communist) who strengthened ties with Chavez on December 11th of this year. Since when is the U.S. a country that does not allow its own companies to bid against foreign competitors, especially communist competitors?
Original Story 11/21: When we’re not drilling in Brazil, we’re awarding no-bid weapons contracts to Brazilian companies that are friendly with Iran. Then we do it to the exclusion of an American company that has invested $100 million in the competitive aircraft.
Obama has no leanings towards U.S. companies but he does like communist-leaning ones. You can’t make this stuff up.
The Air Force has notified Hawker Beechcraft Corp. that its Beechcraft AT-6 has been excluded from competition to build a light attack aircraft, a contract worth nearly $1 billion, according to the company spokesman. Hawker Beechcraft had worked with the Air Force for two years and invested more than $100 million to meet the Air Force’s requirements for the plane.
1400 employees in 20 states would have been employed through 2015 if they were awarded the contract.
Brazil, Iran Foster Stronger Ties(CNN) Representatives from Brazil and Iran met this week and agreed to enhance relations between the two countries, a signal that Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff will follow the example of her predecessor and demonstrate Brazil's diplomatic independence by dealing with a nation under scrutiny for its nuclear program.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Ahani and his Brazilian counterpart, Maria Edileuza Fontenele, met Tuesday, Iran's state-run Press TV reported. Complete Story:
This is what we can expect from Obama, doing business with a Country that harbors HATE for the United States.
The decision favors the Super Tucano built by Brazil’s Embraer for the initial contract to supply 35 with the potential for 55 aircraft worth up to $950 million, which does not include foreign sales.

Here again Obama has shown his hand, and who he would prefer to hang out with and do business with, Brazil. It is certainly not companies from the United States. Brazil has very strong ties to Iran, the very country that is seeking a nuclear weapon this is wrong as it gets, but what can we the people expect from a man that we really do not know.
A man who has refused to provide a validated birth certificate and a President who puts other countries ahead of The United States of America should not be President.
I have no problems with him being elected; I was willing to give him a chance. Well Obama had his chance and he has failed miserably. If I had the power I would have the man removed from office. I do not have that power as an individual, however collectively as "WE THE PEOPLE", as a NATION, we can remove him in November.
In my opinion, in the last two days the American people have been presented with two issues that shows you where Obama's loyalties are, and it is not the United States of American.
Please try and remember this come election day this November.
