While America suffers restrictions on developing its own oil resources, it
apparently is supporting and giving financial guarantees to foreign individuals
and organizations in Brazil.

The Wall Street Journal reports: "The United States, through the U.S. Export-Import
Bank, has issued a 'preliminary commitment' of $2 billion and more if needed" to Petroleo
Brasileiro SA, a Brazilian government-owned oil exploration and development corporation
known as "Petrobras."

Petrobras is exploring and developing what has been described as the "huge offshore
discovery” of Brazil's Tupi field in Santo Basin near Rio de Janero. According to reports,
the site could yield as much as 1 million barrels of oil per day.

    The Soros Fund Management LLC holds a stake in
    Petrobras in the amount of $900 million as of Dec.
    31, 2009.

    The Soros Fund is headed by U.S. naturalized-citizen
    George Soros, a multi-billionaire who describes himself
    simply as an investor.

    A SHADOWY CENTRAL FIGURE IN AMERICAN
    POLITICS
    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.

    Now that word is out that the facilities of the U.S. Export-
    Import Bank SA is offering guarantees for loans to
    Brazil's state-owned oil company Petrobras, U.S. citizens
    are beginning to complain.

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, a vocal
    proponent of offshore drilling, says, "So why is it
    that during these tough times, when we have great
    needs at home, the Obama White House is
    prepared to send more than $2 billion of your hard-
    earned tax dollars to Brazil so that the nation's
state-owned oil company Petrobras can drill offshore and create jobs
developing its own resources?”

George Soros is becoming a central figure in American politics. He is using his billions of
dollars and his influence in the energy field to bring about what he identifies as a “regime
change” for America, an idea he has promoted for many years. He has called for such a
change since the days of George W. Bush.

Soros planned at one point to oust George W. Bush during
the president’s reelection campaign of 2004. He spent $25
million in the campaign to elect John Kerry. He stated at the
time, defeating President Bush “is the central focus of my
life . . . a matter of life and death.” America under Bush, he
said, is a danger to the world “and I am willing to put my
money where my mouth is.”

REGIME CHANGE
To George Soros, regime change means the elimination
of the present governing system, in this case, the
democratic republic of the United States.
That would
mean there would be no political parties, no elections, but
in place of the American system, he would introduce his
Shadow Party.

George Soros, with the help of his brain child, Moveon.org, has created his
Shadow Party which awaits his call for the regime change for America.

    Soros has had considerable experience in bringing about
    “regime change” in Europe. In particular, he is given
    credit for raising of funds in 1989 for a regime change in
    the Czech Republic when Vaclav Havel was brought to
    power. He helped engineer “regime changes” in
    Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia and Yugoslavia.

    At the present time, the U.S. dollar is under the most
    severe international pressure in its history. The U.S.
    government has exposed itself by creating stimulus
    packages and issuing currency amounting to trillions of
    dollars. This is exactly the situation that spoilers such as
    George Soros have been looking for.

THE MAN WHO BROKE THE BANK...PARALLELS TO TODAY IN THE U.S?
This is a similar scenario which George Soros found in Great Britain in 1992 when he
made his first billion by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets.
He became known as “the man who broke the Bank of England.” It was reported that “he
broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes
severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically in comparative worth almost
overnight.”

Change has been the watchword of the Obama Administration. One would hope that the
emphasis for change does not extend to such a radical movement as a regime change. A
regime change would spell the end of America’s democratic republic.

    ...United States Energy Interests
    Held Hostage by Soros, Others

The United States has been held hostage for too long
by the interests of others in the development of its own
petroleum resources. Both President Barack Obama
and Congress find ways to prevent America from
availing itself of opportunities to exploit offshore drilling.

A recent situation reveals just how ridiculous it has
become.
