High Crimes: Harry Reid And Barack Obama’s “Yucca Conspiracy”

|| By FITSNEWS || This website has written on several occasions of the “Yucca Conspiracy,” a corrupt – and illegal – bargain between U.S. president Barack Obama and former Democratic leader Harry Reid.

Need some background?  The federal government has collected more than $10 billion – including more than $1.2 billion taken from Palmetto state residents – to build a nuclear waste repository in Yucca Mountain, Nevada.  The facility was supposed to open in 2017 (and serve as a final destination for nuclear waste from the Savannah River Site), but Reid and Obama have conspired for years to keep it shuttered – even as they collected hundreds of millions of dollars a year from utilities and their rate-payers.

“Obama’s efforts to kill the project are viewed as a sop to (Reid), who hails from Nevada and has bragged about killing the project in the past,” we wrote two years ago after a U.S. district court ruled against the administration.

This week The Wall Street Journal blasted the deal – calling it “a crude political bargain in which Reid agreed to do the President’s dirty work on Capitol Hill if Obama blocked the nuclear waste repository at Yucca Mountain in Nevada.”

The Journal article went on to accuse Reid of invoking the “nuclear option” (no double entendre intended) on judicial appointments in the U.S. Senate as payback for the court defying him on Yucca Mountain.

“He was looking for revenge,” the Journal article stated.

But not just revenge – he was also looking to stack the court which defied him with liberal judges.

Insane …

Additionally, Reid’s “Yucca Conspiracy” with Obama is also cited by the Journal as the reason he decided to “block nearly all amendments in the Senate after Republicans won the House in 2010, shielding Mr. Obama from having to veto bills.”

Wow ..

These are serious allegations, people.  Made by a serious newspaper.  Involving the sanctity of our institutions as well as billions of tax dollars (a disproportionate share of which came from dirt poor South Carolina).  So … where is the Palmetto State’s congressional delegation on this issue?  Where are their demands for a criminal investigation? 

We know Washington breeds corruption.  And that our ADD nation has scandal fatigue.  And we know that Obama will never be impeached (because that would be “racist”).

But these allegations, if true, constitute the very definition of “high crimes.”   They represent deliberate attempts to subvert the judicial and legislative processes: And Obama and Reid need to be held accountable for them.

South Carolina’s leaders at the federal and state level need to unite in condemnation of the “Yucca Conspiracy,” and insist that those responsible for its perpetuation be brought to justice – including Barack Obama and Harry Reid.

Gruberized government stupidity at its worst … considering that the object of derision is perfectly good fuel for nuke power plants.

The Chinese have offered to buy all of that “spent” fuel … and would recycle it and use it to power their own significantly growing nuke power plants.

RogueElephant March 31, 2015 at 1:21 pm

Jimmy Carter ruined the nuke industry back in the 70’s. He stopped the fission reactor at Barnwell which , if memory serves me correctly used the “spent fuel ” from the fusion reactors and gave off the fuel needed for the std. reactor. I’m not really up to speed on this but it was as close to a perpetual motion machine as was possible. One gave off the fuel for the other one. It only made sense to me then but naturally a Dim had to kill it, so it must have been a good idea.

FastEddy23 March 31, 2015 at 1:33 pm

FYI: As the Chinese well know, the burning of coal for electricity releases many times more C.R.A.P. than do all nuke plants in the world combined. (Carbon, Radiation And Particulates.)

Nölff March 31, 2015 at 2:44 pm

I think we’ll see Iron Man’s Arc reactor for that thing is tangible.

The Colonel March 31, 2015 at 1:35 pm

A Democrat who actually knew that nuclear energy was safe – he’d worked on nuke boats and fixed facilities while in the Navy. He’d actually assisted in cleaning up a problem at the Chalk River Research Facility while he was in uniform.

Rakkasan March 31, 2015 at 3:41 pm

Having a little trouble seeing Three Mile Island from here. Must be the residue from that Japanese meltdown in the atmosphere. And, my kids didn’t suffer from be restricted from playing outside after Chernobyl. Yes, I know, per kWh it is safe. Except when it’s not, then it ruins your day. So is flying, except when your pilot decides to, well, take a dive. Then the only safety statistic that is important is 100%. Had a buddy who worked (and slept) next to the nukes on the big subs. He had received over 100% of his lifetime exposure by the time he was in his late 20s. Had to move him out of nukes. So, yeah, I guess its safe, so to speak. Let’s ask him about his health in another decade or so.

CNSYD March 31, 2015 at 4:43 pm

I seriously doubt that your “buddy” exceeded 5(N-18). Also, the racks are not located “next to” the reactor compartments.

FastEddy23 April 2, 2015 at 10:22 pm

Can’t see either from out here in the west. The smoke and C.R.A.P. from the Chinese coal burning power stations gets in your eyes.

TroubleBaby March 31, 2015 at 3:42 pm

Yep, ole Carter was a nuclear sub engineer & also the closest any President got to actually balancing the budget since the gold standard disconnection in 71′

Lot’s of bad things happened under his watch, but I’d wager to say he wasn’t responsible for most of them and really got a bad rap/blame for a poor economy.

The installation of Volker and the raising of rates, which brought on short term pain, eventually paved the why for the boom under Reagan and allowed Reagan to grow gov’t while the economy ran wild.

In a weird way, I can make a good case that Carter was easily the most conservative President post WW2.

Carter’s most glaring fault was being too honest with the American people, from a political perspective. No one likes being told to turn down a thermostat(being conservative with oil) and wear sweaters.

Rakkasan March 31, 2015 at 3:48 pm

“The economy ran wild…” Use of the passive voice to avoid putting responsibility where it belonged. Reagan cut and cut until he finally had to raise taxes for damage control

TroubleBaby March 31, 2015 at 3:59 pm

Reagan “cut and cut”?

Seriously, what are you talking about? The gov’t & deficits expanded under Reagan.

Is there some other context I’m missing?

FastEddy23 March 31, 2015 at 8:01 pm

Yes …

FastEddy23 March 31, 2015 at 8:01 pm

… mostly it was the tax cuts that did it. Although Volker tried mightily to stem the inflationary tide with excessively, though temporary, high bank interest rates.

FastEddy23 March 31, 2015 at 7:54 pm

Balancing the budget? What a fairy tale! Are we talking about the same budget here? G’ment inflation ran up to more than 20%, caused by Carter and cronies … and his giant bunny.

In a last ditch effort to unravel His economic screw-ups, He had to bring in T. Secretary Miller and Fed. Chair Volker to finally being the recovery (circa 1979).

TroubleBaby March 31, 2015 at 10:51 pm

I know that reading history is at times inconvenient, but yes, Carter has come closest to balancing the budget than any other President since the 71′ disconnect.

Don’t let the facts disturb your rant however.

FastEddy23 April 2, 2015 at 10:19 pm

The facts are that “zero-based budgeting” was too complicated for the average DC taxsucking budgeteer, so most of them lied, claiming they met their budget goals … Not!

If you are still relying on those broken budget promises made during the Carter administration, then yes, that pack of lies did make the budget appear to be balanced.

The Colonel March 31, 2015 at 8:46 pm

I tried to find the clip with no luck but Saturday Night Live did a hilarious skit on Carter and “The Pepsi Syndrome” where Carter goes to “two mile island” to help desk with the nuclear emergency there. The skit ends with this exchange:

Rosalyn Carter: Where is Jimmy? I have a right to see him!

Ross Denton: Mrs. Carter, the president is receiving special treatment right now.

Rosalyn Carter: What kind of special treatment? Why can’t I see him?

Ross Denton: Mrs. Carter, this is Dr. Edna Casey. Perhaps she can explain better than I what has happened to the president.

Dr. Edna Casey: Mrs. Carter, your husband was exposed to massive doses of radiation. Now this has affected the entire cell structure of his body and greatly accelerated the growth process.

Rosalyn Carter: Well, what does that mean?

Dr. Edna Casey: It means, Mrs. Carter, your husband, President Carter, has become THE AMAZING COLOSSAL PRESIDENT.

Rosalyn Carter: Well how big is he?

Dr. Edna Casey: Well Mrs. Carter, it’s difficult to comprehend just how big he is but to give you some idea, we’ve asked comedian Rodney Dangerfield to come along today to help explain it to you. Rodney?

Ross Denton: Rodney, can you please tell us, how big is the president?

Rodney Dangerfield: Oh, he’s a big guy – I’ll tell you that – he’s a big guy. I tell you he’s so big, I saw him sitting in the George Washington Bridge dangling his feet in the water! He’s a big guy!

EnviroEngineer April 1, 2015 at 11:10 am

Correct. So, Carter did not make the decision to stop reprocessing lightly, or in any state of ignorance. He had good reasons for doing so. He was not “anti-nuke” by any stretch. This was all about non-proliferation.

Soft Sigh from Hell March 31, 2015 at 8:12 pm

If I recall correctly, he shut the fuel recycling plant (before it started) to prevent all the weapons-useful plutonium created in the used fuel from becoming available. Nothing regarding fusion ever existed.

Allied General Nuclear Services was the name I think..

EnviroEngineer April 1, 2015 at 11:08 am

It is apparent that you are “not really up to speed on this.” Go do your homework, study a bit of nuclear energy stuff, and some history while you are at it, and get back to us.

WSJ…a Rupert Murdoch owned ‘newspaper’…serious…seriously?

FastEddy23 March 31, 2015 at 1:28 pm

“… His News Corporation acquired Twentieth Century Fox (1985), HarperCollins (1989)[14]and The Wall Street Journal (2007). …” – Wikipedia.

Terry March 31, 2015 at 3:17 pm

Correct, and all publications owned by those entities are now just part of the Murdoch, rumor mill. They have all lost any credibility they had. The WSJ, which use to be the paper of record for Wall Street is now just another rag in which Murdoch spew his drivel and political views (same thing?). You may as well read Drudge or Limbaugh.

The Colonel March 31, 2015 at 7:02 pm

When you read drudge, you’re reading the mainstream media most of the time. He writes very little, preferring to link a lot.

FastEddy23 March 31, 2015 at 8:33 pm

Drudge (one of my favorites) does invent some exciting headlines now and again … :>)

Example: “FACEBOOK secretly tracking all users.. Even after they delete their accounts!”

BrigidBernadette March 31, 2015 at 11:58 pm

Invented? The headline for that linked article posted in the UK Independent is “Facebook accused of tracking all users even if they delete accounts, ask never to be followed.”

BrigidBernadette March 31, 2015 at 11:59 pm

Yet another imbecile who cannot grasp what Drudge is or does. Amazing.

The Colonel April 1, 2015 at 7:18 am

Pray tell, who is Drudge and what does he do?

BrigidBernadette April 1, 2015 at 12:15 am

Harper Collins is now only publishing Murdoch’s political views? Same with 20th Century Fox’s movies? That is breaking news then, and only YOU seemed to have figured it out! You better call someone and let them know! Try a source owned by Viacom, McClatchy, Gannet, or Time Warner. They all tell the unbiased truth, 24/7, right? WSJ, founded in 1889–do you trust their stock price indexes and business reporting, or has that lost all credibility too? Do you question the facts of the Yucca Mountain debacle, or did Rupert Murdoch sneak in the building and write the copy himself? Tell you what, don’t read or use ANY Murdoch owned media then. Don’t even watch the Simpsons or Family Guy either, or American Idol, some Murdoch ideology may rub off on you. They’ve lost all credibility too, that Sunday night Animation block. Bob’s Burger’s is rife with Murdoch rumor mill subliminal messages. It’s nothing to do with simply making money, I’m sure of it.

The Colonel March 31, 2015 at 1:31 pm

15.4 billion dollars in a hole in the ground and your president wants to just “…close it and move on…”. The Courts have told him to do so is unlawful: http://abcnews.go.com/Business/yucca-mountain-reprieve-nuclear-waste-storage-site/story?id=19961367 but he still wants to just “..close it and move on…”. His willing accomplice? Harry “not in my back yard (well, you can build it but you can’t use it)” Reid. What did Harry get out of it? Political patronage, backside coverage and money for Nevada to buy more patronage.

What did it cost our little podunk state? 1.2 billion dollars. How many roads could we repave for 1.2 billion?

Rocky March 31, 2015 at 2:16 pm

Well we could have built that highway to Meth Beach. What we shoulda done, is dug a big ole’ hole in west of Fallujah and dumped all that crap out there, and ISIS would easy to locate because they’d all be bald.

FastEddy23 March 31, 2015 at 8:30 pm

That Harry Reid was very concerned about his states property values, him being in that scamming, scheming game up to his bloody eyeball. He did not care a fig that South Carolina taxpayers were going to suffer.

Bye, bye, Harry … don’t let the door hit you on the butt on your way out.

Cpriestess April 6, 2015 at 10:23 pm

But it’s pretty cool what the “exercise machine” did to him before he left.

katie April 7, 2015 at 2:50 am

Can we pay the “exercise machine” to follow up on the other side of his face?

Bible Thumper March 31, 2015 at 1:37 pm

Only in a corrupt, bureaucratic and litigious society like ours, would anyone think it was a good idea to store dangerous spent nuclear fuel on site next to a nuclear reactors.
The spent fuel is more vulnerable to a natural catastrophe or terrorist attack than the reactors themselves. There proximity to each other only increases the danger exponentially.

Bible Thumper March 31, 2015 at 3:14 pm

Great! But that doesn’t explain why it should be stored on a nuclear reactor site. There is only one reason I can find. Politics.

easterndumbfuckistan March 31, 2015 at 3:18 pm

It shouldn’t be, but the current system is a safe as anything else for the time being (and for all of our lifetimes and of those of anyone we know). It’s all politics, truthfully we should be burning all that “waste” in fast neutron reactors (aka breeder reactors) and make more fuel and power out of it.

FastEddy23 March 31, 2015 at 8:11 pm

More research needed here.

Mother Nature has stored Her nuke waste in a convenient spot: The Great Rift Valley in the middle of Africa, where the most recent naturally occurring nuclear reaction became critical. … This also happens to be conveniently located just down the trail from the first signs of human evolvement and habitations … Just saying.

EnviroEngineer April 1, 2015 at 11:13 am

The Oklo site was in Cameroon, not in the Rift Valley.

CNSYD March 31, 2015 at 1:47 pm

We have been told that a nuclear accident will contaminate an area for multiple millennia. Why just look at how devastated modern day Hiroshima and Nagasaki still are…. oh wait!

The Colonel March 31, 2015 at 1:56 pm

We had a discussion about Hiroshima and Nagasaki yesterday – one of my students asked if we could go into the contaminated areas yet – I showed them this website: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2160.html

Russia’s newest tourism destination? Chernobyl. No, you don’t glow in the dark when leaving. Maybe they can relocate the site to Harry’s backyard.

CNSYD March 31, 2015 at 3:04 pm

The damaged core is still in the entombed building. Russian reactor design is not known for its safety design. In response to why the Soviet nuclear submarines had such sparse radiation shielding to protect the crew, the Soviet officials replied, “Soviet mothers are producing replacements every hour.”

Richard Gozyna March 31, 2015 at 3:09 pm

Very true, CNSYD. And visitors have to wear dosimeters. However, the flora and fauna have flourished and the Russkies are making a Dollar (Ruble?) from foreigners.

I’ll bet there is some big money to be had for SC politicians to OK or abstain from opposing both leaving radioactive waste here in SRS and the nuclear plants and receiving more radioactivity at the Barnwell dump.
