The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

Nuclear news this Fukushima disaster anniversary week

  2. Julian assange is trying to influence elections again. He is a real piece of work. It is like people say:”People cannot trust many internet personalities.” So many are whores, getting money from questionable sources, like assange.
    Some are in trouble like Assange and Montbiot.
    George Montbiot is the fukushima denier, and british nuclear cabal cheerleader. Montbiot has been sued by half the house of lords, in britain, for libel.
    Same for Assange. A sort of captive , mercenary whore-propagandist. He says a majority of democratic candidates are cia. There are not enough cia or former cia, to do that.
    There is good news, there are many anti-nuke and progressive candidates running for congress. Obviously none are republican. The odell brothers and especially wally were former deepstate NSA spys, that established the easily flipped rigged electronic voting network in the United States, for republicans.
    The republican party is overrun by deepstate operatives and generals. George w bush, eliot abrams (supremo NSA goon and american traiter)gave the deep state carte blanche to spy on americans, without a warrant, and tax us 100 billion a year to do so. Screw you Julian assange, you duplicitice, spook, rat-bastard.
