“And I will invest $15 billion a year in renewable sources of energy to create five million new energy jobs over the next decade – jobs that pay well and can’t be outsourced; jobs building solar panels and wind turbines and a new electricity grid; jobs that will help us eliminate the oil we import from the Middle East in ten years and help save the planet in the bargain. That’s how America can lead again.”
President Barack Obama, October 30, 2008
Yes, I swiped that from Obamanomics Outsourced, a fun new GOP website that explores how Obama has helped fund overseas companies and projects with his notorious taxpayer-funded stimuli.
Be sure to check out the site! There’s a nifty interactive map and, best of all, SHARE buttons! Nothing is more enjoyable than sharing Obama’s atrocious failures with your friends and family. (Be sure to share this article, too, okay?)
Let’s take a look at Switzerland, eh? We all know about Romney’s supposed “tax haven offshore account” being there, so how about some cronyism?
Swiss-Based Landis+Gyr Received Over $50 Million In Stimulus Contracts For Their Smart Grid Meters. Cathy Zoi, A Former Obama Energy Department Official, Held Over $250,000 Worth Of Stock In The Company As They Profited From Her Department’s Policies. Zoi Had Previously Served As An Executive Director At Landis+Gyr Before Joining The Obama Administration.
Mmmm, fundamentally changing our political system, Mr. President. I see. Just who is Cathy Zoi, you may ask? Wikipedia offers some information:
Cathy Zoi is the former Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) at the U.S. Department of Energy. She is currently employed by Silver Lake Kraftwerk, “a partnership between Soros Fund Management and Silicon Valley private equity giant Silver Lake.”
Soros again? Even her husband is involved in some shady business.
She’s only donated $5,000 to Obama, too. What a shame. Plug ‘Cathy Zoi’ into the FEC engine yourself to see. Her husband’s thrown a few thousand into DNC and Obama coffers, as well. Just throw ‘Robin Roy’ into the engine and see.
This has been just one example of the many different examples of kickbacks and injections of our money into foreign companies. Be sure to scroll through the entire Obamanomics Outsourced site to get the full picture.
