Clintons and the give away of U.S. Uranium mines

Two posts today. When I saw this header from Weasel Zippers I recalled an earlier post, so let’s connect the dots from 2010.

Millions Flowed To Clinton Foundation In Exchange For Russian Control Over Large Portion Of U.S. Uranium

So now we know how Russia got ahold of our mines.

Russians to Control Uranium Mines in Wyoming

Impeachment process should start immediately.

Why in the world would we do such a thing? Putin must be getting a good chuckle..threatening us so we support the START treaty which precludes us from a Anti-ballistic missle system? We are being played as fools. The world is buying up scarce resources while we sign what we have away. Now a moratorium on off shore drilling on the East Coast and the Gulf for seven years while Cuba and China develop the area.

From The Telegraph;

Two uranium mines in Wyoming are on their way to control by a Russian company now that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has approved transferring the mines’ licenses.

The NRC last week approved the license transfer to a Russian company known as ARMZ which expects to obtain a controlling interest in Canadian-owned Uranium One by year’s end. Uranium One holds the licenses for a proposed uranium mine and an existing uranium mine in northeast Wyoming.

The transfer raised concern from Wyoming’s congressional delegation, who said the uranium could in theory go overseas and serve against U.S. interests.

The NRC continues to prohibit exporting the uranium.

Uranium Miners Hit New Highs:

International demand for U2O6 is rising. Knowledgeable investors who made a killing when uranium reached $136 a pound in June 2007 are once again in the accumulation mode. The Russians, Koreans, and particularly the Chinese are investing in joint ventures all over the world to gain control of future supply.

WASHINGTON  — The Republican-controlled Congress has cleared a bill approving the construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. That sets up a confrontation with President Barack Obama, who has threatened to veto the measure.

The House voted 270-152 on Wednesday to send the bill to the president. Neither chamber has enough votes to overcome a veto.

Vote Summary By Senator Name By Vote Position By Home State

The White House promptly declared that Mr. Obama would veto the measure — which would force the approval of a proposed 1,179-mile oil pipeline from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico — in a stroke of the pen that is expected to be the opening shot in a series of vetoes of Republican measures.

The Senate voted 60 to 36 in favor of building the pipeline. 62-36

Passage of the Senate bill sends the measure back to the House, which passed a largely similar bill earlier this month. House leaders are still deciding whether to simply pass the Senate bill as it is, or to hold a conference merging the House and Senate bills into a new bill, which would then be voted on by each chamber.

Keystone Pipeline – We have just been Grubbered

Why they are making the pipeline issue about jobs I have no idea.  It should be framed around the best ways to improve safety.  The oil is going to get there one way or the other. The environmental side is once again misguided. The rail vs pipeline impact weighs to using the pipeline. Add to this the impact on the lack of Rail capacity that is impacting farmers, timber and other commodities and once more we are being “Grubered”. Congrats go out to the Rockefellers, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffet as well, who stand to make Millions if not more by supporting Rail as opposed to the pipeline.

Why Do These Train Cars Carrying Oil Keep Blowing Up?

Early on the morning of July 6, 2013, a runaway freight train derailed in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec, setting off a series of massive explosions and inundating the town in flaming oil. The inferno destroyed the downtown area; 47 people died.

The 72-car train had been carrying nearly 2 million gallons of crude oil from North Dakota’s Bakken fields. While the recent surge in domestic oil production has raised concerns about fracking, less attention has been paid to the billions of gallons of petroleum crisscrossing the country in “virtual pipelines” running through neighbor­hoods and alongside waterways.

H/T: Mother Jones

The vote has election year resonance in the Louisiana Senate race, but for our purposes the pertinent question is: if the pipeline is built, what effect would it have on rail congestion in the northern Plains and Midwest?

Much of that congestion now is due to railroads shipping Bakken crude to terminals on the West Coast and East Coast.

He said, “Once Keystone is built, that will go in pipeline instead of having to run 14 100-car unit trains a day. So you can see it will help reduce congestion on the rails. … We need it so we can move other goods.”

Another Keystone XL supporter, Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., said in a Senate speech last week, “We have a rail crisis. We have been battling now for a long time with the limited capacity in rail and much of the oil moving out is going on rail. That makes it harder for us to get our agricultural commodities to the marketplace….”

He said the building of the Keystone XL would allow about 100,000 barrels a day of Bakken crude to move by pipeline “and therefore not on the rail car. That saves about a unit train a day, which is significant.”

Side note on Canadian National Railroad (CN) – Bill Gates is their biggest investor.

Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC is among U.S. and Canadian railroads that stand to benefit from the Obama administration’s decision to reject TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.
With modest expansion, railroads can handle all new oil produced in western Canada through 2030, according to an analysis of the Keystone proposal by the U.S. State Department. (Chuckle time)!

“Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern, a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska-basedBerkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A), said in an interview. If Keystone XL “doesn’t happen, we’re here to haul.” From: Bloomberg

The keystone pipeline is actually just one of several oil sands pipelines targeted by the Rockefeller Brother’s Fund. Ezra Levant calls it industrial sabotage and, based on their own Power Point, that certainly seems an apt description. H/T: Heritage  From Rockefeller Fund sabotages Keystone pipeline approval. The Rockefeller Brother’s Fund in a coordinated, 4-year, $28 million dollar campaign was on the march to defeat it.

US billionaire Warren Buffett has appeared singing and playing the ukulele on Chinese state television. The billionaire popped up on CCTV and wished the people of China “a happy new year.” The Lunar New Year of the Dragon begins at midnight on Sunday. “Your country has accomplished amazing things, and the best is yet to come,” Buffett told the broadcaster.

Military response team getting prepared for U.S. civil Ebola UPDATE

UPDATE: Of course you do have the authority. I am just being silly. Funny that you should raise te question. Did you ask Eric?

“We actually do have the legal authorities to do this,” a Pentagon spokesman said on Monday, one day after U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered the U.S. military to form an “expeditionary Ebola support team.”

“This isn’t going to violate Posse Comitatus,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 says the Army (and later, the Air Force) may not be used to “execute the laws” of the United States.

“This is nothing more than potential support, and I stress ‘potential support,’ to civilian medical authorities — if and only if they ask for that,” Kirby said. “But there’s no violation of posse comitatus. The Northern Command commander has the authorities that he needs to get this team ready to go.” More at  CNS

Why a military response team? Why the Department of Defense? I guess we know the answer. No tin foil required. Answer is given in  the post,”What is the purpose of FEMA camps?”which follows. Martial law already commenced.

 Martial Law declared in Connecticut over Ebola, Civil Rights suspended indefintely

 Washington Examiner:

An United States-based emergency Ebola response team is being prepped, the Department of Defense said Sunday.

In response to a request by the Department of Health and Human Services, a 30-person team will be ready to “response quickly, effectively, and safely” should more Ebola cases arise inside the U.S., according to a Pentagon press release.

“Secretary [Chuck] Hagel today ordered his Northern Command Commander, Gen. Chuck Jacoby, to prepare and train a 30-person expeditionary medical support team that could, if required, provide short-notice assistance to civilian medical professionals in the United States,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said in statement.

The team of 20 critical care nurses, five doctors trained in infectious disease and five trainers in infectious disease protocols will be sent to Fort Sam Houston in Texas for up to seven days of training provided by the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases.

Once training is completed, the team will remain in a “prepare to deploy” status for up to 30 days, according to the Defense Department.

The team will not be sent to West Africa or elsewhere overseas, as it is meant only to deal with domestic Ebola-related issues.

I encourage everyone to look at the Heritage Foundation link regarding Model State Emergency Health Powers Act.. The Heritage link is not from the tin foil crowd as well. Here we go:

“Quarantine is used to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill. These people may have been exposed to a disease and do not know it, or they may have the disease but do not show symptoms,” states the CDC.

Quarantine can also help limit the spread of communicable disease. More at Heritage Foundation

Just what is the purpose of FEMA camps?

Internment Camp Services Bid Arrives After NDAA

KBR’s call for FEMA camp service bids arrives soon after the Senate overwhelmingly passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which permits the military to detain and interrogate supposed domestic terror suspects in violation of the Fourth Amendment and Posse Comitatus.

Section 1031 of the NDAA bill declares the whole of the United States as a “battlefield” and allows American citizens to be arrested on U.S. soil and incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay.

A number of civil liberties groups have come out in strong opposition to the legislation, most notably the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), the nation’s oldest and largest Asian American civil and human rights organization.

In a letter addressed to Congress, S. Floyd Mori, the national director of JACL, said the NDAA is the first time that Congress has scaled back on the protections provided by the Non-Detention Act of 1971. Mori said the legislation, if enacted and put into use, would be reminiscent of the unconstitutional indefinite detention of Japanese Americans during World War II.

National Emergency Centers Act

In 2009, the National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645 was introduced in Congress. It mandates the establishment of “national emergency centers” to be located on military installations for the purpose of providing “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,” according to the bill.

In addition to emergencies, the legislation is designed to “meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security,” an open ended mandate which many fear could mean the forced detention of American citizens in the event of widespread rioting after a national emergency or total economic collapse, as Paul Joseph Watson noted in January of 2009.

“As always, their safety and security will remain foremost on his mind,” Kirby said of Hagel.

Why the United States is giving away ownership of our Energy and Refineries

 

Yesterday my post was U.S. giving away ownership and control of our Energy and refineriesPaladin, who writes a great blog commented on the post, and it is worthy of a read. Pay him a visit if you haven’t done so. His response gives a succinct explanation of how we came to where we are. Where we are headed. Here we go:

The left’s grand idea to prevent WW III was to intertwine all of the key player’s economies so that could never happen because everybody would go broke. There are several outcomes from such a strategy, the first is that if one economy fails to thrive, all connected economies take a hit. This is why it is said that if the American economy has a cold, the rest of the world gets the flu. The flawed premise was that America’s economy would always be preeminent.

The second effect is a bit more subtle. As foreign influence grows, international policy becomes critical. This is why Obama’s foreign policy is so important. The fact that he basically doesn’t have one, is not good news. By being a follower and not a leader, Obama submits America to the will of her enemies by default. The third effect is massive corruption.

We have already seen the effect of such corruption with the collapse of the housing market in 2008. A collapse formed by the left holding a gun to the head of lenders and forcing them to make loans to people who could not pay them back. Banks sold these loans to investors who purchased insurance to limit risk and the rest is history. There were runs on commercial banks, but the public was kept calm and the consumer banks dodged a bullet. We began printing money around the clock in March of that year because the government saw what was coming and have never stopped. Flooding our economy with cash worked to calm fears initially, but economists believe that you cannot do so and avoid the consequence of run away inflation. While that has not happened yet, many believe that it is only a matter of time and that is why economic growth is slow as the economic shell game tries desperately to suck up all of that extra cash.

The fourth effect is overconfidence. Most in American government believe that our foreign co-conspirators, because the only way any of this works is with the cooperation of foreign powers, would never allow our economy to go belly up. If we go, they go. At least that is the thinking. But there may be ways around an economic collapse. The use of gold reserves for instance. Something that America no longer believes is necessary, but the Chinese and Russians still have. In fact, the Chinese have been buying gold steadily for years and hanging on to it. Could that mean that the Red Chinese would survive if the American economy collapses? Possibly. If the American economy implodes, the Red Chinese transition to the gold standard and possibly survive the chain reaction of economic collapse.

The untold story is that wealth is being created outside of the United States. As American assets are being carved up by foreign powers, the best and the brightest in those fields are going to work for them. American ownership of American resources is dwindling. And American citizens become beholden to foreign powers and not their own government. Who do you think these citizens will elect to that government? Will the public support policies that are not favorable to their employers? Why would a citizen care about something that he no longer has a vested interest in? That is the long range problem and one that terrifies the left when they consider the influence of capitalism, but not, strangely, when one trades the place of the capitalist with that of the foreign dictator.

As the foreign acquisition of American business continues to grow, so too does foreign influence on our government. Influence that may or may not have America’s best interests at heart. Such a circumstance does not see America as an equal, but as a resource to be tapped. Ultimately, that is the grave danger of foreign ownership and why colonialism failed. It’s just that in our case, there are no foreign troops. Although I would not be surprised to see such should the American economy fold.

We have never truly recovered economically from 9/11. While the loss of life was tragic, the economic damage was far worse. In short, we are very vulnerable economically right now. We spend like there is no tomorrow, and just wait until the medical bills begin to roll in from Obamacare. Cloward and Piven’s strategy is alive and well, and the aim is to crash the American economy to initiate governmental change by crisis.

There are a lot of pokers in the economic fire right now.
