The Price of Appeasement

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.

How much property value do these two gentlemen alone hold in NYC? How many more individuals would potential prosecutions rattle if they were to be pursued? Well… now we’re talking some serious CASH.

Tighter rules. Enforcement of current laws… that might piss-off some very wealthy people. Some of whom might decide to take their POLITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS somewhere else. They might have to find another PARTY. One that more closely aligns with their BOTTOM LINE.

That sounds pretty catastrophic for the incumbent party… definitely something they should keep in mind.

In this light, it’s not about the VOTERS. Hell… it’s not even about the LAW. It’s about MONEY and the pursuit thereof. For the Real Estate developers, for the Political Campaigns, and for the Political Party Machines.

Trickledown Economics… all boats are LIFTED with the rising tide.

Wait a second… you wouldn’t wanna go and rock the boat now, would ya’? It certainly would be a SHAME if they had to take their MONEY somewhere else.

Because they are BEHOLDEN.

It pains me to say it… but Donald Trump was right. The system is rigged.

In favor of people like him… and against everyone else.

The influence of money in our election system, turns our legislative processes into an unnecessary balancing act… balancing between doing what’s right and doing what’s necessary to get re-elected.

Making microscopic legislative gains for The People… session after session, decade after decade. All while those who FUND their election campaigns increase their market share… session after session, decade after decade.

Who do our elected officials work FOR… who SHOULD they be working for?

It underlies every decision they make. It colors their perception of what’s RIGHT and what’s WRONG. It limits the number of TOOLS in their legislative toolbox… preemptively. BEFORE they’ve even considered a single piece of legislation.

Legislators legislate based on MONEY and the pursuit thereof. Therefore, legislation favors those with money over those without.

And I can hear it now. Yes, this is a ‘free-market economy’, but I question the validity of the assumption that someone who has accumulated vast amounts of WEALTH, would naturally act in the best interest of everyone ELSE.

There’s simply no financial benefit for them to do so.

It clears the mind when we view our government in this light. Why do they NOT act when it’s CLEAR that they should… even when that action is supported by a bipartisan MAJORITY of this Nation?

The answer to the problem would cost their donors MORE MONEY, risking their own political future.

Again, this is not a character assassination… it’s just simply the WAY IT IS.

… and I believe it must change.

Because it’s at the HEART of the problem… which problem? ALL OF THEM. Immigration reform. Voting Rights. The Right to CHOOSE. The education of our children. Our National Debt. Our National Security…

It’s at the heart of the problems that we can SEE… and the problems we cannot.

Rot. Greed. Corruption. Self-interest.

Would the MAJORITY of this nation have supported such a plan? Would this plan embody our opinions on the subject of PEACEFUL nuclear proliferation? Would this endeavor help to secure our Nation’s Strategic Nuclear Defense posture?

What about the nuclear waste these facilities would create? What about the long-term maintenance and inspection of those facilities? What about geopolitical instability… civil unrest… and what about regime change?

We set BILLIONS of dollars on fire studying the potential cost vs. benefit of nuclear energy at HOME and ABROAD. If the United States Government hasn’t already done an in-depth study on the potential long-term consequences of widespread adoption of Nuclear Energy in the Middle East… then they’d better set another BILLION on fire and hop to it.

Because apparently, that idea has been pursued in the recent PAST, and I have no doubt… someone will attempt to pursue it again in the FUTURE. Who do we allow to write our policies on Nuclear Energy… who shouldn’t be allowed to do so.

Fire is a TOOL. Gunpowder is a TOOL. Nuclear weapons are a TOOL…

So too, is KNOWLEDGE.

When we seek knowledge, we reach for the LIGHT.

When our fear consumes us, we seek out the DARK.

We will not find the answers we seek cowering alone with our FEARS.

We must face them. We must shine a LIGHT on them and work to fully understand them.

No one should fear a Nuclear War… but everyone should fear the ROT and CORRUPTION that would inevitably lead us to one.

It’s a hard thing to swallow… it’s just a numbers game. Even if the odds are infinitesimally small. One-in-a-million, one-in-a-billion… people are dying due to the vaccine. It’s a stone cold fact. To deny it, is to deny science.

And that’s where this whole debacle went off the rails. Our elected officials chose to DENY SCIENCE and played politics with a deadly virus. I have no confidence that our elected officials are telling us the TRUTH right now… because BOTH SIDES have been manipulating facts and spinning scientific data for over TWO YEARS.

And now we can SEE just how accurate Donald Trump’s predictions were…

“If we could hold that down… so we have between 100 and 200,000 – we altogether have done a very good job.”

—Donald J. Trump


Nailed it, sir.

IF ONLY they knew in advance, if only they had some sort of PLAN…

IF the odds are one-in-a-million, in this country alone that’s 350 people… worldwide that’s 8,000 deaths. Even if we are generous and it’s more like one-in-a-billion, we’re still condemning EIGHT people to die.

That’s a hard call for anyone to make… because it could be anyone. It could be my MOTHER, or my CHILD. It could even be ME. And that decision is made with intent. With knowledge… with consent. A decision was made, knowing with certainty what the outcome would be.

Because of our knowledge and our collective effort to SAVE LIVES… we are at the LOWER end of those initial internal projections. Unequivocally, our SACRIFICE has saved over one million American Lives.

And it’s not that hard to see how it could happen. When we lose focus on our goals. When doing what’s RIGHT becomes too cumbersome… when the PRICE of expediency is more attractive than the burden of responsibility.

At best we could say, that our elected officials are just out of touch with the lives of Everyday Americans. At worst… they act knowing the results of their inaction. And hey, I’m an optimist. I’ll gladly take a half-empty glass… if that’s all that’s left. But I refuse to be BLIND.

What person acting in GOOD FAITH, would name a bill after a recovering addict out of spite… especially when that recovering addict is the SON of the sitting President of the United States?

Senator Manchin and his family’s got it all figured out… why can’t YOURS?

Is there nothing left that we hold SACRED? Is there nothing that can bridge the gap… no place where we can find COMMON GROUND?

If I may be so BOLD to suggest… there is NO political division in this country. There is no existential threat. There is still ONE overarching ideology that encompasses every political party, that every one of us can agree upon.

Our Legislators legislate based on MONEY and the pursuit thereof.

To FUND their Political Organizations.
To FUND their Political Parties.
To FUND their re-election campaigns…

All at the expense of THE PEOPLE they were elected to represent.

Any system that would allow the influence of MONEY to decide who is worthy of legislating for the rest of us, will inevitably favor those WITH money over those WITHOUT.

Be it the Second Amendment, a woman’s right to CHOOSE, or the teaching of this Nation’s long and prosperous HISTORY… we all know what the problem is.

Listed BELOW are the monthly statistics for my social media campaign on Twitter, as of March 2020. I launched my Twitter account at the end of February 2018.

Note the number of “New Followers” I gain each month. Also note when those numbers start to deviate from being statistically random.

Something changed late in the summer of 2019. No matter what, I cannot seem to get my follower count to stay above 150 followers. Every month I have a handful of “bots” who will follow me. I know they’re bots because it’s always a young woman with a bunch of numbers in her name, and they send me a direct message saying, “Hello” or “Hi there”, or “Can we connect”.

At the end of the month, the accounts are REMOVED from Twitter in their monthly security sweeps. All of the month’s progress is wiped out, leaving me hanging at just under 150 followers.

 

 

 

As soon as it became CLEAR that I should report potential interference in my campaign, I took immediate action. I contacted my Representative in Congress.

On September 20, 2019, I sent the following email to my Representative, Sharice Davids:

“I am concerned the President is blocking my comments on his Tweets in violation of the 2nd Circuit ruling in July 2019. I believe he is labeling my campaign hashtag as a phrase he doesn’t want to see.

I believe the term he uses is ‘shadow banning’.

 

Again, I don’t have proof of who is doing this. I only have my own internal data analysis, and it suggests a firm LIMIT to the size of audience I can reach.”

 

Unfortunately without any PROOF of my suspicions, there was nothing she could do. Once I had PROOF that a candidate for President of the United States was being CENSORED on Twitter, I contacted the Speaker of the House.

I felt confident that my claim would be heard. As she repeatedly said… whistleblowers are “her wheelhouse”. But I am no fool. I was hopeful political affiliation would not determine who’s case is worthy of consideration when it comes to investigating crimes committed by the President.

 

BUT… 

 

Should party affiliation matter in a moment like this? Is removing Donald Trump from Office this fall NOT the top political priority for the Speaker? Is Joe Biden the candidate who can do that?

Would she remain SILENT if I had physical evidence that Joe Biden’s campaign was the target of this censorship?

Is it now ACCEPTABLE in the United States of America for an incumbent to SILENCE their political opposition?

 

… where does THAT line of questioning lead.

 

 

What candidate does Donald Trump fear the most. We’ve seen what lengths he will go to, to dig up DIRT on opponents… and not even THAT, just to arouse the suspicion of, a possibility of, some kind of INVESTIGATION into

He was IMPEACHED for it… and he would do it again. He said so on live TV.

The candidate Donald Trump fears the most is the one with NO DIRT to be found, the candidate he has no LEVERAGE over. If there is no dirt, his only option is to label that candidate’s campaign messaging as OFFENSIVE.

‘That VILE, NASTY phrase… #EndTheElectoralCollege!’

 

 

It offends him. So it is “shadow banned”, unable to be seen by the PUBLIC. It’s MOVED from sight, hidden behind a virtual wall that says “Click HERE for more replies“… hidden away because he’s offended? Or is it because he has NO REPLY…

 

The President of the United States has NOTHING TO SAY in response to that phrase.

No defense. No denial. No discussion.

 

 

(ASIDE: If you want to hear a really interesting story… ask me about being BLOCKED on Facebook.)

fb
… tick tock tick tock…

 

Do you remember in the Spring of 2018, when it was reported that Donald Trump was privately discussing Constitutional Amendments with his team, and they were telling him that it was a bad idea…? I do.

 

 

That was the point in my campaign, where I knew without a doubt, that my ideas were in his circle of influence. If not him, then someone on his team. I realized that I had become an advocate. I had INFLUENCE on the decision making process of the President of the United States… and humbly, I have not forgotten it.

 

The best part is, every position I’ve staked out that aligns with my views, and demonstrates decisions I would make if I were in Office, they’re all POLAR OPPOSITE of everything he represents. But I do not stake these positions out simply to oppose Donald Trump… I’m just being ME.

These are the things I hold sacred… it’s all written right here.

… biased? Yes, it is an autobiography. And it is a Political Campaign, an inescapable fact. If anyone doubts my motives, I welcome your inquiries, and I would gladly answer them DIRECTLY.

 

 

 

 

I’ve sought to propose a SOLUTION to the problems highlighted by the current Administration… he is not the FIRST. His is only the most recent example of systemic issues that have existed since this nation was founded. Allowed ascent through an electoral system that declares VICTORIOUS a candidate, who LOST the vote of the people by 3 MILLION.

 

And Twenty years ago the vote was even closer.

And Nixon may have had justification to call for recounts in 1960 against JFK.

And on, and on, and on…

 

… is anyone else tired of chasing our own tail?

 

What IF our Presidential Primaries worked more like the NCAA Championship Tournaments… and they only lasted SEVEN MONTHS.

What IF EVERY STATE had an equal say in who should be our next President.

What IF ONE CITIZEN truly did equal ONE VOTE.

 

Which candidate does he truly fear facing this fall…

That should be for THE PEOPLE to decide.

 

 

 

 

I’ve shared this information with my elected representative and received NO RESPONSE. I’ve shared this information with the Speaker of the House… again, NO RESPONSE.

If a candidate believes their campaign is the target of foreign interference, they should call the FBI… what about domestic interference? In this specific instance… should I address this to the Attorney General of the United States? Would he ensure this case is expedited and brought to light BEFORE the election?

 

So… admittedly, I have a political stake in this. Should I surrender two years of campaign data to the investigative arm of my political opponent… in the middle of my campaign? My campaign has always been about the people. Everything I have done, I’ve done for OUR benefit.

I would want to know, before I made my decision this November, if the incumbent OR his campaign were actively SILENCING one of their opponents.

 

That is a fact that should not be silenced…

To be SILENT, is to be COMPLICIT.

Let History Be Our Guide

It is becoming increasingly CLEAR… the longer we wait, the more this becomes permanent. The larger the SCAR will become. And on DAY ONE, the Senate Majority Leader sent the United States Senate HOME FOR THE WEEKEND, knowing the spread of the virus was exponential. DAYS. Lost.

In order to SAVE LIVES, the doctors and scientists of the United States tell us we must STAY HOME. We are doing as required by science and by LAW… and the Senate Majority Leader tells the States, if they can’t cut it they should just file for BANKRUPTCY.

The leadership of the Senate GOP wishes to revert to the Articles of Confederation, a system we rejected over 200 years ago! The majority of the Republican Party currently advocates for political de-evolution.

 

… let them.

 

If they choose to fight for a lost cause, let history inform them as to their Party’s fate; cast aside and forgotten along with their political predecessors… Our sight is FUTURE FOCUSED. Let history be our GUIDE.

 

The NOISE… in this moment, the noise becomes deafening. Deflect and distract, not to our benefit, but to our detriment. It’s hard to find a TRUE bearing within all this chaos. The polarity shift within our political spheres has pushed this nation to its extremes. Divided us on things as basic as TRUTH and FACTS… at a time when we should be UNITED.

LIVES are in the balance, yet elected officials in the Senate unite behind a President, asking in GOOD FAITH, if we should investigate using cleaning supplies as a treatment for COVID-19.

Hey! You know… if it had never been investigated before NOW, in all those years of use on kitchen countertops and in toilet bowls… he might have a strong point.

 

With every passing day, with every insanity uttered. With every life LOST, the agenda of the Senate Majority Leader is laid BARE before his constituents and the American People. Continuing his lust for political power and electoral supremacy in this moment transforms his actions; from something simply unseemly or distasteful, into something historically adjudicated as being complicit.

 

But these agendas are NOT OURS. These agendas and ill-informed opinions are not those held by the MAJORITY. And, once again… this fall the people must choose the lesser of two evils:

 

Damned if you DO or Damned if you DON’T.

 

It’s time for the SYSTEM to change… it’s time for the system to represent the PEOPLE from whom it receives its POWER.

 

The vaccine is in human trials. May they proceed safely… then let us be on our way. This quarantine cannot end until either TESTING for the virus and it’s antibodies is widespread, OR a vaccine is mass-produced. Until then, we must proceed with CAUTION. The choice is CLEAR when cast in this light, yet the Governor of Georgia wants everybody in his State to go out and get a HAIRCUT… while the infection rate continues to GROW.

It is not a failure of science. It is not a failure of the PEOPLE. In fact… it’s not a failure of the system. The system has been designed to work this way. It is a government empowered by the people who put those elected officials into office… THE DONORS.

We have the ability to SAVE LIVES, simply by STAYING HOME. The only reason people want to go back to work, is because the United States Government has FAILED to take care of the PEOPLE first… the CORE of our economic engine. Instead of ensuring FOOD and SHELTER for EVERY AMERICAN until this pandemic is over, The United States Senate has focused on business owners… hoping their kindness and generosity would trickle down.

 

To that I say, let HISTORY be their guide.

 

 

 

Once again, every American Citizen knows better than Donald J. Trump what the best course of action is to SAVE LIVES… yet he does not act. He goes to great lengths to do the opposite of what is necessary. Just like his businesses, all the risk is on someone ELSE. When things go south… he’ll just WALK AWAY.

 

 

 

Our laws have been set up to enable people like him to be successful. Donald Trump is the shining example of what the GOP wants this nation to BE… and to that end is how they LEGISLATE.

 

 

To my ears, a call for a return to normal just rings hollow. I would not send my children to school next week… or next month. I would not go and get a haircut right now. I fear putting the life of my stylist in jeopardy more than anything else… because he is a black man. Even though I have Type 1 diabetes and am at higher risk, I know I have better health insurance than he does.

How would I justify a decision like that to his FAMILY?

When faced with a CHOICE, the Senate Majority Leader chose INACTION and IGNORANCE, over PREPAREDNESS and SCIENCE. Briefed in NOVEMBER by the United States Military, on the potential threat posed to U.S. Forces in Asia, the Gang of Eight could have started preparing THEN.

NOVEMBER 2019.

4 DEMOCRATS and 4 REPUBLICANS.

Who has acted in the interest of THE PEOPLE?

 

… who has NOT.

 

They knew in November. Now 50,000 Americans have died. And that number will only continue to rise. Plans EXIST… plans have been implemented across the GLOBE, successfully, and countries have started their RECOVERY…

INACTION in the UNITED STATES SENATE

Tests were available IN JANUARY. South Korea was testing hundreds of thousands every day at the peak of their crisis.

 

Millions of Americans remain in the dark.

 

Eddie Glaude Jr. said it best this week: “This is an invitation to the grave.” If not for ourselves, then for those around us who are more susceptible, more vulnerable… for those who are less fortunate than ME.

Because any success we realize by surviving this crisis would not be as sweet, if there was something we could have done… if only we had known.

End the Electoral College.
