Glenn Beck's Allegation Concerning Brazilian Oil Exploration

Fox News employee Glenn Beck made a rather stunning set of allegations last week which would seem to be real breaking news about Wonderboy's oil and energy policy. If true, you'd think it would be on headlines in major print and network media. If false, you'd think Beck's unfounded allegations would be there, instead.

Here's what Beck contends. He claims that George Soros, through, I believe, one of his funds, has long positions in Petrobras, the Brazilian oil company.

It is alleged by Beck that Wonderboy had the United States loan or give $2B to Brazil for Petrobras to drill for oil in deep waters off of their coast.

Beck's point was the incredibly obvious corruption involved. Soros has funded think tanks which have written legislation passed by this Congress, at our First Rookie's behest.

Now, it appears that he has given US money to a foreign country and/or its oil firm, in which that adviser has a position, thereby apparently endorsing and facilitating Brazil's own deep water drilling.

Oh, yes, while Wonderboy has issued a moratorium on US deep water drilling, wrongly claiming seven engineering experts called for it.

This is terribly corrupt.

Why hasn't any major news outlet pursued this story to crucify either Wonderboy and Soros, or Beck?

OK ... here's a comment on Beck's latest "Great Conspiracy":


Beck would do better spending his time on Obama's links to Blagojevich and the rest of the schemers involved in the on-going trial.

I checked the links you noted, and I am sorry to say they are unconvincing.

The provenance of the blogs leaves a lot to be desired. Personally, I cannot say that I believe they are either non-partisan or factual.
