The Height of Hypocrisy
Chucky is calling on the U.S. to hold up a $15.1 billion deal between a Canadian company and China’s state oil company.
Nexen, located in Calgary, said this week its will acquire CNOOC Ltd. — China National Offshore Oil Company — but Schumer will ask the Treasury Department to try and stop the deal, according to the Toronto Globe and Mail.
The paper reported that New York's senior senator is preparing a letter saying that the powerful Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States should not approve the deal citing security issues and free trade.
|He's been involved in NY politics since 1975, and the idiots will vote for him again. That you can take to the bank.|
It’s a total crock to think Chucky gives a rats ass about the strategic importance or national security implications of the Chinese owning U.S. oil and gas. Last February he opposed construction of the Keystone XL pipeline that would have provided thousands of jobs not to mention the importance of buying oil from our closest neighbor and most friendly ally in the world.
You see, the Chinese view oil as a valuable commodity needed for sustained economic growth and they don't care where it comes from. On the other hand, Liberals like Chucky, see oil as an evil, a filthy substance detrimental to our environment instead of the natural God-given resource it genuinely is. Furthermore, if Chuck'y worried about national security implications why put one's trust in buying oil from the likes of Venezuela and the Saudi's?
