Skip to comments.Barack Obama's war on America's fresh water supply: China is buying up Lake Michigan!

Barack Obama is keeping his promise to lower the sea levels, and hes starting with the drought plagued Midwest where Lake Michigan water is being shipped by the boat loads over to China!
By using a little known loophole in the 2006 Great Lakes Compact, Obama minions are allowing Nestle Company to export precious fresh water out of Lake Michigan to the tune of an estimated $500,000 million to $1.8 million per day profit.
By draining the precious jewel of the Great Lakes in the middle of America, our federal water managers are allowing the export of our water out of our country across thousands of miles of oceans into the Asian basin plagued by huge population centers who are suffering from their constant lack of fresh water. Hows that for cutting America down to size?
The water is being sold at a 240 times markup, that is, well over 240 times its production costs. (2) In 2006, then President George W. Bush signed into law a...

You can’t make this stuff up!
Doesn’t Obama have a great lakes czar?
Seriously? This regime is so anti-American, it is not funny it is just so sad.
And in return the lakes get filled with Zebra Mussels and Asian Carp!
Have the ChiComs saw a piece of Antarctica off and fill their tanks that way!
If they weren’t so busy dumping anything and everything into their water supply, they would have plenty of fresh water.
It’s time to email the link to everyone you know in Michigan, as well as anyone you know living around the great lakes. This is an obomanation. It’s only the beginning of the disaster’s this guy is going to visit upon us.
This is interesting, How come the Chinese don’t do the same thing with water from the Panama Canal? It would be easy to pump their tanks full as they transit it.
I’m glad someone is paying attention. Here in the great lake states we’ve been screaming bloody murder about what’s been going on with the attempts to seize control of the water and the power centralized in Chicago.
how much water would they have to take out of the lake to make any noticeable difference? and is it technologically possible to make a difference?
WHAT THE EFFING EFF???????????????????
WE HAVE A DROUGHT AND HE IS SHIPPING WATER TO CANADA????
WATER THAT IT IS SOMEHOW AGAINST THE LAW (THANKS TO HIM) FOR US TO USE??????????????
IMPEACH THIS FARGIN BASTIGE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hopefully Barry is sending China water collected from the mouth of the Milwaukee River where every time it rains the sewer overflow from the Metro Milwaukee Area is dumped into Lake Michigan. And it is Democrats who set up this lousy sewage system.
“By draining the precious jewel of the Great Lakes in the middle of America, our federal water managers are allowing the export of our water out...”
This is nonsense unless there is not enough water to run Niagara Falls and the hydroelectric plant below it.
The problem is not that someone is using a provision in the rules to make a profit, the problem is how the rules prohibit so many profit-making business opportunities with water that would otherwise just run out to the ocean.
This is kook nonsense.
I don't know about the technology, but I know that if you put the government in charge of the Sahara desert, we'd have a sand shortage in a few years.
“how much water would they have to take out of the lake to make any noticeable difference? and is it technologically possible to make a difference?”
We’re selling stuff and people bitch about it.
wouldnt it be cheaper to desalinate ocean water
