Posted on 07/25/2018 8:18:17 AM PDT by Hamiltonian
At the request of two domestic uranium producers, the US Department of Commerce (DOC) has launched an investigation into whether the present quantity and circumstances of uranium imports threatens national security. However, the US nuclear energy industry has warned that a suggested quota on imports would have a significant financial impact on the countrys reactor operators........
In their petition, Ur-Energy and Energy Fuels noted that US uranium production met just 5% of domestic reactor requirements last year. This year, domestic producers are projected to fulfil about 2% of US reactor demand......
In 2016, the combined uranium imports from three geopolitically and commercially linked countries Russia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan fulfilled nearly 40% of US requirements, the petitioner said. While the US does not import significant quantities of uranium from China at this time, China has grown significantly their state-owned nuclear enterprises and announced that they intend to penetrate the US nuclear market with nuclear fuel that will compete directly with US uranium miners. Furthermore, the approaching expiration of the Russian Suspension Agreement [in 2020] will remove existing limits on Russian uranium imports....

So we sell it to Putin and then he sells it back to us at a profit.
This makes the Trump Florida vacation home, money laundering, non scam , scam look like patty cakes.
We can now extrapolate that Clinton STOLE our Uranium from us and sold it to Putin who then kicked back 400 million to the Clinton Foundation.
There has never been a better opportunity to put a whole bunch of son of bitches (and one daughter) in jail.
They call a meeting between heads of state treason?
This my fellow Freepers is the definition of treason.
Well, Hellary got rich and that’s all that matters.
Yeah Hillary sells our uranium to Russia and they sell it back to us.

.......The United States uses heavy water for nuclear research and weapons production. Dwindling supplies and an uncertain international market have made it an even hotter commodity
The Department of Energys last heavy water procurement came through a controversial Obama-era deal to get Iran back into compliance with a 2015 agreement it made with world powers to stop pursuing nuclear weapons.
In return, DOE received a shipment of 600 beer kegs filled with heavy water, totaling 32 metric tons.....
....The United States has not been able to produce heavy water since 1996, and the National Nuclear Security Administration has said resuming production will be costly and take at least 10 years of lead time.....
At one point, Canada was a reliable supplier. But, DOE terminated a procurement process with the country when the Obama administrations interest in maintaining a 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran afforded DOE an alternative route....
Bet for sure it went from Russia to Iran to make heavy water,Hillary didn’t care she’s a money and power whore.
Bill didn’t give north Korea a reactor just for lights it’s all about money both should be in prison.
Odds are we have all the uranium we need. Just have to find it. It’s here somewhere. Probably under an Ant hill in some environmentalist’s backyard.
[uranium imports threatens national security]
I think he should forget about the importing and focus on the exporting. /coughHillarycoughUraniumOnecoughRussianscoughTheClintonFoundationcough
Should have stuck to long matches and corn chips.
Blatant and In our face corruption, horrendous decision making, snubbing deals with our peaceful neighbors to instead do shady deal with countries of terror. Why? Well...We all know why. Something is very wrong with our country when our leaders and citizens are not addressing this immediately.
Gregg Jarrett reported that Rosenstein and Mueller were on the CFIUS committee that approved the 20% uranium deal. Hillary sent a State Dept. representative so she could claim it wasn’t her decision.
Of course. They’re dirty. They will fight this to the death, I believe. All in the name of “Russian Collusion...”.
Possibly the most important post of the day. Can you further expound on this top re Canada, Iran and Heavy Water.
Could be another item to nails the Clintons and Obama on.
Ironically ambiguous phrase. The meaning depends on the ideology of the speaker.

That Uranium One deal not only gave Russia a chunk of our production... it gave them nearly all of Kazakhstan’s as well.
