That’s always been the biggest problem with embracing nuclear energy production… what do we do with all that WASTE? Thousands of tons of radioactive nuclear fuel sits cooling in spent fuel pools in every nuclear power facility across the globe. For thousands of years that fuel will be highly radioactive… where will it go? What will we do with it?

We can bury it. We can forget it. We can ignore it. But no matter what we decide to do with it, it will continue to cost us money… for centuries to come.

Thousands of tons of highly radioactive spent nuclear fuel… with nowhere to go. No one wants it… ‘not in MY backyard!’ No one has a permanent plan for it… so why not recycle some of it? Make some more useful fuel out of it and save some money in the process. No one seems to want it. I doubt anyone would mind if it just… disappeared.

One man’s TRASH is another man’s TREASURE.

It’s called ‘closing the loop’ on the nuclear fuel cycle. Instead of disposing of all that waste, some of it can be recycled and used again in a nuclear reactor. Not in the BOMBS, though. That requires the highly enriched material. The TOP SHELF supply… the GOOD STUFF.

And that GOOD STUFF is in short supply. Only a handful of locations on earth can produce highly enriched, weapons-grade nuclear material. Those nations who currently have a stockpile want to save all they can for use in their nuclear arsenals.

They wouldn’t want to go and waste the ‘good stuff’ on a single-use rocket engine… especially if they plan on making a lot of them.

When there’s short supply and high demand, someone has to find a new supply. Someone will find a way. If there’s money to be made, someone will make it… and TRILLIONS of dollars will motivate people to do, just about anything.

Yes, it may be ‘Rocket Science’… but it’s as easy to understand as the phrase ‘FOLLOW THE MONEY’.

They can see the writing on the WALL. They’re living in a dying petrostate. Oil is going the way of the dinosaur and they want a piece of the FUTURE. But, in essence… Nuclear Fission is energy of the PAST. Its time is UP.

We are currently working to unleash the Power of the SUN. And as it turns out… that energy is SAFER and CLEANER than anything we’ve ever seen before.

The Nuclear Age is now a relic of the PAST…

… and we will be dealing with the fallout of that era for many years into the future.

And what will they find when they get there? It’s already been widely reported that the Russian soldiers destroyed radiological monitoring stations around the site. They even dug trenches in the highly radioactive exclusion zone and then tracked that radioactive dirt back inside the facility, contaminating parts of the building that were already clean… what else did they do while they were there?

They have no respect for International Laws. They have no respect for the Ukrainians whose territory they’ve invaded. They don’t adhere to standards or follow established protocols to ensure safety…

We must brace ourselves and be prepared to find the worst-case scenario inside that building. The inspectors from the IAEA might get there… and find nothing at all.

What would be our response then.

There cannot be any appeasement. There must not be any appeasement… because there will never be any appeasement.

Vladimir Putin must withdraw all Russian forces from the entirety of Ukraine. These actions should not be rewarded in any way.

We do so at our own peril.

Be it in pursuit of an enemy in retreat… this far and no farther.
Be it in the advance of forces in defense… this far and no farther.

The Enemies of Democracy come dressed in the same attire, seen countless times before. They come bearing badges of honor… to enforce THEIR RULE, upon those deemed worthy of merely being ruled over.

The Defenders of Democracy are myriad and opalescent. Carrying with them their CHILDREN… clothed only in the scars of WAR. They stand to defend. They MARCH out of necessity. They fight to defend their home.

A task deemed worthy of no less, than the loss of their OWN LIFE.

These are the values of a FREE PEOPLE.

So too, are the values of The People of The United States.

Because we know— if it can happen to ONE of us, then it can happen to us ALL. It’s only a matter of TIME. If we turn a blind eye now, toward the suffering and injustice; so too, for us… it will be the same. In our time of need, in our hour of oppression… our fate will have already been sealed, long before the first shots are fired.

As we cry out for HELP, the question will be asked… ‘What did you do to help keep their Democracy intact?

Will it be said that the United States of America, stood on the sidelines and did nothing… or will it be remembered as a time in which we chose to ACT.

When they had the CHOICE they did not ACT. Now is the time of their regret. Because they did not know… and how could they? Their STORY had not yet been written.

Today, we reap the bounty of their misfortunes. We HONOR the memory of their sacrifices by ensuring it will never happen again.

There is no regret greater than that born of INACTION.

… words so wise, may they be etched in STONE for all time.

The Case Against the President, Part 4: ‘The President’s Little Black Box’

Official transcript of the YouTube video.

 

Donald Trump began his initial attempt at building a Trump branded property in Moscow, NOT in 2015, but back in 2013. At the Miss USA Pageant in Las Vegas, he and members of his Organization met with the family of a Russian Oligarch. The SAME people that would eventually be tied up with another Trump Tower Meeting in June 2016.

A DECADES long dream would finally be realized- A Trump Tower in Moscow. It seemed that the proper paperwork was set to be greenlighted by the necessary Russian Officials… specifically, Vladimir Putin.

No one makes THAT amount of money in Russia without HIS SAY SO.

 

After the project details were agreed to in June 2013, the Trump Organization was well on its way. Mr. Trump was so excited at the prospect of a Luxury Hotel Property in Moscow, on June 18 he Tweeted: “… will (Putin) become my new best friend?”

In October 2013, Mr. Trump went on “The Late Show with David Letterman”.

(See 14:40 mark in the video)

 

Three weeks later, on November 8, 2013, Mr. Trump would be in Russia for the Miss Universe Pageant. This would be the first time Trump’s Beauty Pageant would be held in Russia.

He stayed only one night, at the Ritz Carlton Moscow.

 

Three days later, on November 11, 2013, Trump Tweets to Aras Agalarov about the tower project in Moscow:

Later that day, Aras’ son Emin Agalarov, who preformed for the crowd at the pageant, responded, showing his support for the project as well:

Even though President Putin did not attend Trump’s pageant, he wanted to convey a message to Mr. Trump. Something private. Something personal.

In the days following the Pageant, Aras Agalarov instructed his daughter Sheila, to deliver a BLACK LACQUER RUSSIAN BOX to Mr. Trump in New York, at the Headquarters of the Miss Universe Pageant.

A little black box… just big enough to hold an envelope. Delivered by the daughter of a Russian Oligarch, from the hands of Vladimir Putin HIMSELF, to Donald J. Trump…

IN NOVEMBER 2013.

I wonder where he came up with the idea that President Putin would want to be his new best friend.

 

Shared adversity and COMMON GOALS help strengthen relationships, and this newly found friendship of theirs would be put to the test just a few months later, when President Putin invaded Ukraine and OCCUPIED CRIMEA.

After the ousting of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich in late February 2014, Putin used the chaos and unrest that followed as COVER and moved to seize Crimea, a clear violation of the law in the eyes of the International Community.

 

On March 6, 2014, President Barack Obama announced the United States would be placing SANCTIONS on Russia, including travel bans and the freezing of assets in the US, Effectively ENDING the Trump Tower Moscow project.

 

On March 17, 2014, President Obama announced ANOTHER round of sanctions, targeting banks, businesses, arms dealers, and oligarchs. This, plus a THIRD round of sanctions on March 30, 2014, would eventually cost the Russian Government, and Putin himself, BILLIONS of dollars in lost income.

It’s around this SAME TIME that Vladimir Putin initiated the Active Measures Interference Campaign in the 2016 US Elections.

One month later, on April 30, 2014, General Michael Flynn announced his resignation as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, effective August 7, 2014.

General Flynn claims he was forced out.

As President Putin said in Helsinki in 2018, “… we should be guided by FACTS.” Witnesses. Testimony. Was there communication between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin BEFORE the 2016 US Presidential Election?

According to President Putin and EVERY member of the Trump Transition Team, there was NO DIRECT COMMUNICATION between members of the campaign and the Russian Government.

It was just TWO INDEPENDENT ACTORS, working toward the SAME GOAL- defeating Hillary Clinton.

Trump was just at the RIGHT PLACE, at the RIGHT TIME, talking with the RIGHT PEOPLE. Working to further a COMMON NARRATIVE… coincidentally.

(See 8:14 mark in the video)

 

“… Putin sent me a beautiful present. With a beautiful note.”

 

It was SO OBVIOUS, every United States Intelligence Agency KNEW what was going on… and the LEADERSHIP in Congress of BOTH PARTIES was briefed at every step of the investigation.

Any suggestion that someone from the Trump Campaign colluded with Russia is absurd… it’s not like any of them could speak their language!

(See 4:30 mark in the video)

 

… STAND UP for the Rule of Law.

 

-End.
