White House Announces $6 Billion to Promote Clean Energy -- in Asia

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.

The initiative comes after the Obama administration has been criticized for spending billions to subsidize U.S.-based green energy companies that went on to declare bankruptcy, including Solyndra, Ener1, A123, Beacon Power and other failed renewable energy ventures.

    This is a joke….right?

    • Forward says:

      Obama is the joke and a bigger joke is the idiots who voted for him………….twice..

      • caskinner says:

        More like a nightmare…..

      • Edward Shick says:

        They had one person on TV that was bragging He had voted 8 times and still had a week to go , Great election,, No picture ID ,, if they have it do not ask for it, if you can not read English take a democrat to show you who to vote for!!!

        • r says:

          AND this scum is NOT in leg irons and behind bars. Where is the JUSTICE or Justice Department? OH, I forgot; obamy has his best buddy working that department.

        • American47 says:

          And the U. S. Supreme Court is more than worthless! Chief justice’s theory is that elections have consequences so to hell with the constitution!

  2. Dingbat36 says:

    O goody………….more taxpayer money for locations OUTSIDE the USA. And people wonder why we despise Obama.

    • r says:

      Guess WE are big brother. Are we going to give them rewards as well once (if) they install solar panels and/or whatever energy saving devices? Why NOT, we have NO money. Guess we should give them a piece of the USA. That way obamy can get more votes to make him KING.

    • Nancy says:

      The people that voted for this illegal muslim, should be the ones to pay for his giveway’s! I’m getting to despise him more and more everyday!

      • molly way says:


        • cattdogg says:

          There won’t be any American Workers left to pay for his crap if he continues…..

        • Bama Bill says:

          Different point of view, China will take over the country, they will own it!
          George Soros lives in China, and spends billions taking us down. 27 million in one contribution to BHO!

      • Bob2002 says:

        I agree. Unfortunately there are more of them (voters who voted for Obama) than there are of us (voters who voted for Mitt). Our country has lost its direction. We are more than $16 trillion in debt and what do the stupid voters do? Vote Obama back into office. As Einstein said, insanity is “where you do the same thing over and over again and expect different results.” These young college students, single women, blacks, trial lawyers, and gays do not realize the error of their ways. ObamaCare will add trillions to the national debt, and all the Democrats want to do is raise and spend our taxes, and take more of our liberties away.

        • edc says:

          There are NOT more of them, they are better at the cheating game because of no or low moral values.

        • LibertyRN says:

          3 million did not vote for Romney. Wait until those who voted for obozo lose their jobs and healthcare. Many won’t be able to access healthcare as a lot of doctors will not accept Medicaid.

  3. Chiefbuck says:

    One can only imagine what’s next…..possibly a Three Stooges redux.

  4. Bob Litfin says:

    We should spend some $$$ and get Joe’s and “O”s brains replaced

    • Nelson Lentz says:

      We should spend some money and and make a serious and meaningful effort to get ALL of those in Washington, from the top down, who are destroying our country arrested for treason and given the maximum punishment.

  5. Ahh the new world order.. America is not about America anymore. Obama’s new world operative colors will shine even brighter in his third term..

  6. sgtshel says:

    The best we all can do is beg our elected officials of the Republican states, to sustain from the Electoral College. If the Republican states hold their votes in the Electoral College, they would not have forum to vote Obambe in! Congress would then have the right to choose the next president. Everyone call your Republican Congressman. It’s the 12th Amendment!
    Act fast—the College votes on Dec 17th!

    • Bob2002 says:

      Good idea, but don’t count on all Republican Representatives to go along. Most do not have the nerve to do this. Deep down they like what Obama is doing to our country; turning it into a socialist state.

  7. Keenan Lee says:

    So, our tax dollars are supplementing foreign countries’ need for alternative energy. The same tax dollars that the IRS prosecutes for, destroys the lives of innocent people for, and eliminates honest businesses for to give to another nation possibly hostile to our nation so that they can get free energy. Energy to produce weapons or goods that will turn back to us to destroy our economy. Good going administration. Nothing more than a bunch of J.A.

    • Teekay says:

      Great thinking, thanks. I hadn’t thought of that.

    • Sutekh says:

      They hate America and want it destroyed. That’s why they promote and encourage everything that weakens the family, our culture, and our political and economic system. It’s all about pulling us down.

      • mallen11 says:

        This has been going on for a long time because We the People have foresaken God and gone our own way — why should God bless this Nation?

    • oldcoyote says:

      I agree. It’s all JAs telling Obumer what to do and he does it.

      • Bama Bill says:

        George Soros is in charge, he owns BHO. 27 Million dollars in one shot! Lives in China, worth about 700 billion dollars, richest person in the world. Visits the WH when ever he wants. BHO NEVER says NO when he comes to visit. Check it out.

  8. So which of his friends or relatives in congress own these foregin companies to loan bogess money too

    • Clan Mom says:

      He has friends close to him (advisers etc…) who invest in “green” projects.

    • ATLDave says:

      My guess is Pelosi and Reed.

      • Usa FlaagFlyn Gal says:

        Wonder how much of the Pelosi, Star Kist Company money is hiding in financial institutions out side of the country. Like wise, John Carey and the Hienz Corp. Then there’s RICH A-holes in HOLLYHOLE! You can bet they also have a ton of investments in GREEN stuff that WE taxpayers are funding, against OUR will. Seems to me that there are serious violations, without a doubt major conflict of interest. There are probably tons more of these kind of examples of corruption, amongst officials and celebreties.

  9. DockyWocky says:

    Premier Obama, Broncobama, exercises a megalomaniacal grip on the American taxpayer.

    This could be one of the straws that finally break the Messiah’s back.

  10. DockyWocky says:

    Oh, and we are truly sheep is er let this maniac run loose.

    He’s on a post election high, and someone needs to shoot him up with something to bring him down to earth.

    • Nelson Lentz says:

      Shooting Obama “up with something to bring him down to earth” isn’t what’s needed. Obama needs to be arrested fopr treason, which he has committed at least 14 times, and given the ultimate punishment.

      • DockyWocky says:

        As long as the office of Attorney General is a presidential appointment, the job is exclusively to protect the president from us. Holder will never do anything to Obama.

  11. Darrell G. Walton says:

    Anything to liquidate America’s assets to 3rd world punk countries like his native Kenya to better them over us. Anyone who voted for Obama needs to be punched out to knock the stupid out of their heads!!!

  12. phil says:

    The HELL WITH ASIA. What about AMERICA. IT IS OUR MONEY …When can we the PEOPLE Have a say in this crap.

    • omg says:

      Especially when IT IS OUR money. Not obamy’s to give away. Or is he now the Supreme Commander. Why do we need anyone but him in DC when he is the Supreme Leader and make HIS own laws and ignores the law of the land. Those that voted for him will REGRET the day they cast their vote for him. OH maybe not they are still getting their freebies )for NOW(

    • American47 says:

      It may be our money they are wasting, but the will of people is now determined by what all the losers in country want. When the countries direction is detemined by losers, the country will lose. In the end, the losers will starve, but it will be very painful for all of us.

  13. oldtimer says:

    More failed crap from a failed president. The Dumocrats voted themselves into certain poverty.

    • a says:

      The democrap party should be BANNED from the USSA.

    • Goober says:

      oldtimer did you vote for obama? Have you ever known of a politician be poor or even close to poverty? The politician’s are already wealthy, their worth millions and the ones that are a little less off than others (like pelosi) behind closed doors they do insider trading to get richer to even becoming billionaires! So don’t even think they will be voting themselves into poverty, they are super wealthy long before they leave office, you can bet on that!

  14. oldtimer says:

    I am begining to take this succession from the union seriously.

  15. Admiral America says:

    You’d think China would have Asia covered. They’ve got money to blow on ghost cities after all.
