What the liberal left has done to our fine military with their allowing openly gay members to throwing down the scam of Global Warming as a means for our military to work is just gut wrenching. A military needs to be a brutal fighting force, it should never be a Country builder, it should never be a liberal experiment, it should just be. I bring this up because of the disgusting and strange quote given in response to paying 12 dollars more for “biofuels” for our Navy, oh and that extra money goes in the pocket of an Obama bundler More Debt, More Misery For Americans
The headline reads like a piece from the Onion: “U.S. Navy Paying $15/Gallon for Green Fuel.” But it’s real enough.
It seems that, fresh from its success with Solyndra, the Obama administration is slated to spend $12 million to buy a biofuel/gasoline blend that runs $15 a gallon to power a portion of the Navy’s fleet in a demonstration project.
“We are doing this for one simple reason,” explained Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, “It makes us better war fighters. Our use of fossil fuels is a very real threat to our national security and to the U.S. Navy’s ability to protect America and project power overseas.”
Really? As long as a fuel makes the ships, planes and submarines go, how does using pricey biofuel mixtures improve the war fighting capacity of the Navy? Does it make the officer corps feel better about themselves as good stewards of the Earth’s resources, which in turn makes them shoot straighter?
The investment will certainly brighten the day of T. J. Glauthier, a “strategic advisor” to Solazyme, one of the companies selling the environmentally correct fuel to the U.S. government. Glauthier, reports blogger J. E. Dyer, just happens to have worked on President Obama’s transition team. If the administration pattern holds, Gauthier will be paid off before the taxpayers when Solazyme files for bankruptcy.
Crony capitalism is the story of our time, it is the thing that we must destroy because a free and fair federal government does NOT support one company over another. Barack Hussein Obama has made paying off friends a national crisis.
h/t to my friend Bob who said he doesn’t sleep well at night anymore and really that is quite a shame that we moved this far in the liberalization of our military.
