……and literally overnight, the damnable scum administration’s biggest corporate donor/owner gets a monster contract for supplying medical equipment to the nation which used to be known as Burma.
(AP) — General Electric has become the first American company to sign business deals in Myanmar since Washington eased key sanctions on the former pariah state.

President and CEO of General Electric ASEAN, Stuart Dean, second from left, signs documents during the signing ceremony between Sea Lion Co. Ltd., General Electric Healthcare and Bahosi and Pun Hlaing Hospitals in Yangon, Myanmar, Saturday, July. 14, 2012.
Witness at the signing are from left., U.S. ambassador to Myanmar Derek Mitchell, Stuart Dean, U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade, Francisco Sanchez, Managing Director of SEA Lion, Win Zaw Aung and U.S. Under Secretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy and the Environment, Robert Hormats.
GE signed agreements Saturday with two private hospitals in Myanmar’s main city, Yangon, to sell sophisticated medical equipment.
The move came a day after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met Myanmar President Thein Sein and declared the country open to American investment. The meeting in Cambodia was attended by some of the biggest U.S. corporations.
Naaaaaah, there was no inside information exchanged before the sanctions were done away with LESS THAN 24 HOURS BEFORE THE BUSINESS AGREEMENTS WERE ANNOUNCED.
Nothing of the sort is possible with the (nudge) smartest people ever to walk the face of the planet.
These ‘”biggest U.S. corporations” just by sheer chance and blind luck ‘happened to be in Myanmar’ at the same time and in the same place as she-who-shall-not-be-named.
I know the ‘agreements’ had to be just a sentence or two hastily written on cocktail napkins and not the types of multiple-draft hundred-or-thousand-page documents for international business transactions that take weeks and/or months to get done, along with wading through all sorts of governmental red tape on all sides.
It’s also great to know that since the switch was flipped YESTERDAY in the instantly “former pariah state”, that all the violence, corruption and pure evil that’s been going on there for decades simply vanished overnight so these ‘agreements’ could be signed.
Update 5:30pm Eastern Time, 15 July 2012 —- Replaced snarkified GE logo with an AP photo from the signing ceremony.
Yes, behind the gents is a a fully planned-out, big ‘ol printed long-in-advance banner on display with the parties at the signing ceremony.
But when I saw Robert Hormats, that’s when it really sunk in there’s trouble ahead – Big trouble.
Mr. Hormats was once Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs. He’s also a progressive, nowhere near a Capitalist.
I actually forgot he’s in the #HeilObama administration since 2009 as an Undersecretary of State.
Why’d you say ‘Burma’ ?
And now the penguin inside your head will explode.
