Trump is using Yucca Mountain to drum up Republican votes

  1. Trump’s largest donors are Las Vegas Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam. They are also being sued over Israel settlements. I think they donated a combined $25 million — maybe more. The figures are in my blog or easily found online. So, no Yucca Mountain and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and Israeli settlements stay – largely because the Adelsons say so. Plus, Trump has been friends with Netanyahu for decades. Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager used to work for Harry Reid of Nevada. And, Bernie has always preferred to dump waste on poor folk in west Texas and New Mexico.

  2. Trump’s largest donors are Las Vegas Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam. They are also being sued over Israel settlements. I think they donated a combined $25 million — maybe more. The figures are in my blog or easily found online. So, no Yucca Mountain, and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and Israeli settlements stay – largely because the Adelsons say so. Plus, Trump has been friends with Netanyahu for decades. Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager used to work for Harry Reid of Nevada, who opposed Yucca. And, Bernie has always preferred to dump waste on poor folk in west Texas and New Mexico, especially Vermont waste. No Yucca means “interim” storage parking lots in Texas and NM. When I learned this is when I started hating Bernie Sanders. I used to believe that he was really an anti-nuclear environmentalist. He’s not even talking about shutting down nuclear power stations, but only about not relicensing but they are all relicensed. And, while he says he’s against new nuclear, ultimately the US Congress will determine that, as nuclear can’t survive without government funding and Congress has the power of the purse. Bernie’s co-chair, Ro Khanna’s, wealthy wife is still investing in dirty energy, including nuclear utilities and pipelines, while Ro Khanna promotes the green new deal. She’s worth at least $25 million and could invest that in green energy. Thus, I conclude that Bernie’s a big fraud and I think he’s a foreign agent. The only funding for his “Medicare for All” is the Medicare Trust fund for senior citizens. It proposes to dismantle the oversight board, too, and replace it with the HHS secretary. HHS secretary changes with each presidency and currently is held by a former big pharma executive/lobbyist. It doesn’t take any imagination to think up what sorts of price “deals” he will come up with for this proposed hyper-centralized medical system.
