The Biggest Swindle ever is happening behind closed doors!

It appears that our entire Congress is standing by silently while Ben Bernanke works his magic for the 1%. IF you thought the first Bank Bail out with less than 1 trillion dollars in TARP funds was bad...and then thought it was egregious when Senator Bernie Sanders audit of the Federal Reserved uncovered 15 trillion dollars in no interest loans to bail out the banks...

Then sit down and buckle your seat belt. If this doesn't get your blood boiling then get yourself to the doctor you might be dead.

It appears that Ben Bernanke of the Federal Reserve has come up with a totally new way to bail out the banks. Facilitate the transfer of risky derivatives to a FDIC branch of the bank. Who is set up to benefit? The Bank of America--Bofa--has been given the green light from Ben Bernanke to transfer 75 TRILLION dollars worth of risky derivatives from one subsidary holding company to an FDIC insured bank that is "flush with deposits."

Bloomberg reports that BOFA Chief Financial Officer Bruce Thompson believes such transfer is “the normal course of dealings that we’ve had with counterparties since Merrill Lynch and BofA came together.”

According to Rolling Stone reporter Matt Taibbi:

It,’ Matt Taibbi noted:
“(BY) shifting… derivatives contracts onto its own federally-insured balance sheet… an irresponsible debtor, Bank of America, is keeping a loan shark from breaking its legs by getting his rich parents to co-sign his loan. The parents in this metaphor would be the FDIC. The FDIC naturally is not pleased with this development, but the Fed, the supreme banking regulator, is apparently encouraging this move. Here’s how Bloomberg characterized this move: ‘ In short, the Fed’s priorities seem to lie with protecting the bank-holding company from losses at Merrill, even if that means greater risks for the FDIC’s insurance fund.’
“AGAIN and again, the Fed proves it has no appetite for allowing Wall Street to eat its own pain, and continually encourages banks to stick the government with its losses and bad assets. This move will allow Bank of America to keep a Band-Aid over its disastrous financial situation far longer than it would be able to in a genuinely free market. People should be outraged at this development.”

Cenk Uygur explains the situation:

It sounds like the Senate needs to rein in the Federal Reserve asap. Contact your Senator and hopefully your Senator will not be representing the 1% and simply being silent and going along with this outrageous new way for taxpayers to bail out the risky investments by Banks.

You might also ask Obama why he doesn't fire Timothy Geithner who appears to once again be protecting fake people (corporations) and promoting the Bankster's agenda instead of protecting real people.

This is a five alarm Buzz....Buzz.....

Civil Discourse should be the norm.

I posted a comment on another Virginia blog--Bearing Drift--today and encountered someone named Little David. I really like his approach and am hopeful of more civil dialogue among greater numbers of people in Virginia with more attitudes like his cropping up everyday along the entire political spectrum.

I don't know about others but I'm tired of the name calling and labeling that corporations and their mainstream corporate media tries to make as the only way to hold a dialogue in this country.

How about all of us recognizing that we are all people (except of course those corporations that only the Corporate US Supreme Court recognizes as living breathing human beings) and let us have dialogues about ideas, facts, and various solutions to problems and let's leave the name calling out of our public discourse?

I believe this will help our democratic process. It is not in the people's interest to be so split and divisive. But it has served the banksters and Wall Street agenda which has basically been shoved down all of our throats.

I love Virginia and have lots of faith that Virginians can rise up and speak out in a democratic and civil discourse that will serve us and our communities well. I hope others will join in and create a vibrant civil dialogue about issues that impact us all.

Another Broken Obama Promise

Obama should have ended the war on drugs....however, he did promise not to allow the feds to interfere with medical marijuana in states that voted to allow this.

Maybe this is tied to the fact that corporations are still calling the shots in America and not the people? "...The Corrections Corporation of America, the nation's largest company devoted to locking people up, informs investors that liberalization of sentencing or drug prohibition laws could damage its share price. "The demand for our facilities and services could be adversely affected by the relaxation of enforcement efforts, leniency in conviction or parole standards and sentencing practices or through the decriminalization of certain activities that are currently proscribed by our criminal laws. For instance, any changes with respect to drugs and controlled substances or illegal immigration could affect the number of persons arrested, convicted, and sentenced, thereby potentially reducing demand for correctional facilities to house them."

So let's think about this. When we privatize government functions, like prisons, then the goal becomes to make harsher laws and lock up more citizens for profit. I like the old way when we had a voice in our government policies and we wanted to spend less money and use our taxes wisely versus spending more money so that corporations can make larger profits.

But since Obama and the others have to raise money for their campaigns watch for privatization on all levels. When roads, tunnels, prisons and schools are privatized then the "private sector's" main goal is to make money and they will use their profits to lobby the government to lock up more citizens so they can make more profits so the people of America are going to continue to see their taxes rise and they will receive nothing but higher bills as a result.

Wake up America. Government privatization is the worst thing that can happen to your household budgets. The middle class is disappearing. Who is going to stand up for democracy in America?

We can start with the states rights and Medical Marijuana. Let Obama know you want him to be a man of his word. He needs to keep his promise and tell the Justice Department to stop harassing sick people using medical marijuana and the support system that supplies them and take those resources and do something good for the American people.

Why not go after those greedy thugs in fancy suits walking around Wall Street who are waging war on the middle class and breaking laws with impunity? Restore justice in America (which was another of your campaign promises) and show the world that the law applies to everyone in America not just the disappearing middle class and the poor.

What is money buying in VA?

It seems that Virginia's Governor McDonnell and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli have been busy meeting with the infamous Koch Brothers. Money can't buy you love but I wonder what it's buying in VA? The Koch Brothers and their money is currently considered the driving force for both the Tea Party and the Republican Party. When you're that wealthy why not own two political parties?

Eric Cantor has a serious conflict of interest

Eric Cantor has a serious conflict of interest. It appears that he stands to make money if the debt ceiling is not raised. This is beyond outrageous and un-ethical.

The Nuclear Safety Myth

Nuclear proponents always downplay the risks in the name of profits the safety myth propaganda becomes the irrational bought and paid for "new corporate science." This safety myth leads us all down the path to another Fukushima (and the current Fukushima disaster is still spewing radioactive particles around the globe.) The scientific fact is that no radiation is safe and that's no myth!

Senator Wagner is not representing Virginia Beach citizens

This is another good reason to have someone un-seat the incumbent Senator Wagner from Virginia Beach. He's costing his citizens a lot of money as Virginia Beach is fighting the uranium mining that Senator Wagner is helping get through the General Assembly.

Some governments listen to their people.

It's refreshing to see that some governments are not corporate controlled and these governments actually listen to their people. Germany is shutting down their dirty, dangerous nuclear power plants and choosing clean, green energy of the future.

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Finally they tells us...It's meltdown in Japan....

So Japan is now going to switch to wind power for it's future energy needs....

Virginia needs to wake up and keep the ban on uranium mining.

We can take advantage of our incredible wind resources off our coast that are safe and won't end up killing us.

Plus wind will bring more jobs to Virginia without the billion dollar clean up bill.

Contact your state delegate and state senator today. Tell them to stop the nuclear madness and keep the ban!!

Uranium threatens the Roanoke River

Uranium mining is so dangerous that you don't have to actually do it to have an important tributary placed on the top ten list of America's most endangered river. Virginian's need to rise up quickly to protect our families, communities and state.

This is truly nuclear madness!

Coalition to Keep the Ban on Uranium Mining in Virginia Growing Statewide

Coalition announces dozens of supporting localities and groups, launches petition drive and website


Cale Jaffe, Southern Environmental Law Center, 434-977-4090

Mary Rafferty, Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club, 804-225-9113, ext 105

Naomi Hodge-Muse, President of the Martinsville/Henry County NAACP, 276-632-9674

RICHMOND, VA – The Keep the Ban Coalition today announced 41 localities and organizations that have taken action—writing letters, adopting resolutions, etc.—that support keeping in place the state’s longstanding ban on uranium mining. This is evidence of a growing statewide movement. Local governments that have passed resolutions or otherwise taken action include the City of Virginia Beach, and civic groups include the Reston-based National Wildlife Federation, whose membership passed a national resolution of support in April.

The coalition today also launched a statewide petition drive, starting with 1,000 signatures of Virginians who support keeping the ban on uranium mining, and launched a new website, www.keeptheban.org, aimed at raising awareness of the health, environmental and socio-economic impacts associated with uranium mining, milling and waste disposal. Uranium has never been mined commercially in the East, nor in a predominantly wet-climate region of the U.S., like Virginia.

“Virginia has had a ban in place on mining uranium for nearly 30 years, and for good reason,” said Naomi Hodge-Muse, president of the Martinsville-Henry County NAACP and leader of the Sierra Club Keep the Ban Team, Martinsville. “There are just too many questions and potential risks of radioactive and toxic materials contaminating our streams, rivers and drinking water. With all the storms and hurricanes we get, this is the worst possible place you could put a uranium operation.”

The uranium industry is lobbying to lift the ban and begin mining uranium in Virginia, starting at a major deposit at a Pittsylvania County site called Coles Hill, first discovered in the late 1970s. The industry also secured leases on other suspected deposits in Culpeper, Fauquier, Floyd, Henry, Madison, Orange, Patrick, and Pittsylvania counties. Potential uranium deposits were also detected in Franklin and Nelson counties. Recently, Virginia Uranium, Inc. told Wall Street investors that it plans to introduce legislation lifting the uranium mining ban in the 2012 session of the General Assembly.

Coalition partners note the well-documented links between exposure to uranium waste and myriad health problems, including bone, liver and breast cancer, lung and kidney diseases, and birth defects. Another concern is the severity and frequency of storms in the region, which could damage uranium facilities and potentially wash contaminated storm water and uranium waste into nearby water resources. In the last 40 years, nine hurricanes and countless other major storms have deluged Virginia. In 1969, Hurricane Camille dumped 31 inches of rain on central Virginia. This April, at least 30 tornadoes were recorded in Virginia, including one in Halifax County about 20 miles from the Coles Hill site.

Virginia Beach, which gets its drinking water from Lake Gaston, downstream of the Coles Hill site, recently released the findings of its $437,000 study which concluded that a catastrophic failure of a uranium waste containment structure at the site could contaminate the city’s drinking water for as long as two years. Roughly 1.2 million people in Virginia and North Carolina rely on the Roanoke River system downstream of the Coles Hill site for drinking water.

Mary Rafferty with the Sierra Club’s Virginia Chapter said that nine local groups have formed around the state in recent months to campaign for keeping the ban on uranium mining in Virginia (see list below).

“I’m fielding calls every week from concerned citizens across the state with requests for more information and for ways to get more involved. Mining proponents think this issue will be won behind closed doors in Richmond, but the people of Virginia are demanding it be debated in town halls and onfront porches,” said Rafferty.

“If the ban is lifted, it will be lifted statewide, which means Virginians throughout the state could potentially be affected by uranium mining, milling and waste disposal in their communities, or miles upstream,” said Cale Jaffe, senior attorney with the Southern Environmental Law Center.

The coalition website is designed to educate the public on the risks posed by lifting the ban on uranium mining, milling and waste disposal in Virginia. The site has fact sheets and press coverage on the issue, and visitors can sign a petition in favor of the ban and join a local volunteer group.

"Why Are We Playing Russian Roulette With the American People?": Longtime Nuclear Critic Ralph Nader Advocates Phasing Out Nuclear Power Industry

"Why Are We Playing Russian Roulette With the American People?": Longtime Nuclear Critic Ralph Nader Advocates Phasing Out Nuclear Power Industry

Why is President Obama saying "we" are committed to a nuclear renaissance? There should be no royal "we" in the USA. It appears that President Obama has sold his soul for nuclear industry money.

We the people deserve a national moratorium on nuclear energy while we discuss what is "our" best course forward for achieving our energy needs is a safe, sustainable, manner.

Why are we setting up a scenario where private investors will only invest IF the taxpayers are on the hook for the costs? This corporate welfare needs to stop. If another nuclear plant won't be built unless the taxpayer is on the hook then it should NOT be built! No more corporate welfare for this nuclear industry that has never been able to exit in 60 years unless it's feeding at the public trough!

Uranium Quote of the Day

According to Sarah Fields:

Uranium mining is still a dirty, polluting , hazardous, and environmentally destructive industry. State and federal regulatory programs are still back in the 1980s. Some kinds of emissions are not regulated (same story at uranium mills), and there are no clean up standards for the mines after decommissioning. There are still many uranium mining areas in Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah that have never been cleaned up. A federal staff person recently described an area on public land in Utah with historical uranium mining impacts and 2 small proposed mines as a "War Zone."

Floyd County Virginia opposes Uranium Mining in Virginia


WHEREAS, in 1983 the Virginia General Assembly enacted a moratorium on the mining
of uranium in the Commonwealth; and

WHEREAS, presently a company know as Virginia Uranium, Inc. has proposed
establishing one of the largest uranium mining operations in North America within the
State of Virginia; and

WHEREAS, presently Virginia Uranium, Inc. is undertaking an extensive lobbying
campaign directed at getting the Virginia General Assembly to lift the moratorium
established in 1983, thereby allowing the company to begin mining operations; and

WHEREAS, it is probable that the mining operations proposed by Virginia Uranium, Inc.
will result in large quantities of highly mobile, radioactive mill tailings, which must be
stored as sludge in ponds, and eventually in dewatered tailings piles that can retain 85
percent of their original radioactivity for hundreds of thousands of years; and

WHEREAS, it is possible that sludge ponds and/or tailings pile confinement structures
could fail, resulting in the release of radioactive materials into surface waters and the
surrounding environment; and

WHEREAS, the Commonwealth of Virginia’s climate includes frequent storms capable
of producing surface water conditions that will transport and disperse radioactive
materials downstream and away from the site of the mining and related storage of
byproduct; and,

WHEREAS, it is probable that the negative environmental, health, and economic impacts
of a release of radioactive materials could result in catastrophic harm to a portion of the
of the Commonwealth’s land area.

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, by the Floyd County Board of Supervisors,
that it does hereby oppose lifting the ban on uranium mining unless and until it can be
scientifically demonstrated with a high level of certainty that no release of radioactive
materials can escape from any proposed uranium mining operation and/or location.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this Resolution be sent to each member of
the County’s legislative delegations and to the Chair of all groups currently studying
uranium mining in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Adopted by the Floyd County Board of Supervisors on the 12
the day of April, 2011.

Uranium/Nuclear Snake Oil Vendors

This article deserves to be read in it's entirety. According to Chip Ward:

When nuclear reactors blow, the first thing that melts down is the truth. Just as in the Chernobyl catastrophe almost 25 years ago when Soviet authorities denied the extent of radiation and downplayed the dire situation that was spiraling out of control, Japanese authorities spent the first week of the Fukushima crisis issuing conflicting and confusing reports. We were told that radiation levels were up, then down, then up, but nobody aside from those Japanese bureaucrats could verify the levels and few trusted their accuracy. The situation is under control, they told us, but workers are being evacuated. There is no danger of contamination, but stay inside and seal your doors.
The First Atomic Snow Job

The bureaucratization of horror into bland and reassuring pronouncements was to be expected, especially from an industry where misinformation is the rule. Although you might suppose that the nuclear industry’s outstanding characteristic would be its expertise, since it’s loaded with junior Einsteins who grasp the math and physics required to master the most awesomely sophisticated technology humans have ever created, think again. Based on the record, it’s most outstanding characteristic is a fundamental dishonesty. I learned that the hard way as a grassroots activist organizing opposition to a scheme hatched by a consortium of nuclear utilities to park thousands of tons of highly radioactive fuel rods, like the ones now burning at Fukushima, in my Utah backyard.

Here’s what I took away from that experience: the nuclear industry is a snake-oil culture of habitual misrepresentation, pervasive wishful thinking, deep denial, and occasional outright deception. For more than 50 years, it has habitually lied about risks and costs while covering up every violation and failure it could. Whether or not its proponents and spokespeople are dishonest or merely deluded can be debated, but the outcome -- dangerous misinformation and the meltdown of honest civic discourse -- remains the same, as we once again see at Fukushima....

Corporate News Fails US once again....

A ThinkProgress analysis of press coverage by the three major U.S. cable news networks — CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News — from March 14 to March 18 finds that Bahrain received only slightly more than ten percent as many mentions as Libya and that Yemen received only six percent as many mentions as Libya:

Libya: Libya was mentioned 9,524 times by the major cable news networks.
Bahrain: Bahrain was mentioned 1,587 times by the major cable news networks.
Yemen: Yemen was only mentioned 599 times by the major cable news networks.
The lack of coverage of the situation in Bahrain and Yemen isn’t disturbing just because the atrocities being committed there merit coverage. It’s especially alarming because, unlike Libya, both are close U.S. allies and recipients of major U.S. military and economic assistance — meaning that the U.S. actually bears a responsibility to make sure its assistance is not being used in ways that are contrary to American values.
"...if protecting financial consumers — and helping the millions of Americans struggling to hold onto their homes — isn’t worth fighting for, then what is?" Why Elizabeth Warren should be the director of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau!

Nuclear is the worst investment for jobs

According to this study taxpayer dollars should NOT be diverted to nuclear technology since it has the worst record for jobs creation. Agriculture, water infrastructure, solar, wind, smart grid, roads and bridges repair, livestock, crop agriculture provide more jobs per dollar.

In addition the corporate generated myth of nuclear as clean energy is now being exposed as a big lie with the most recent disaster in Japan.

In this age of terrorism we need safe, clean, sustainable energy--let's invest in the technology of the future and create more jobs per dollar with wind, solar, biomass and let the private investors do nuclear if they so desire but without the taxpayer funded corporate welfare.

Solar energy is CHEAPER than nuclear (and will continue to grow cheaper than nuclear over time) and it creates more jobs.
Contact your state and federal officials and tell them NO taxpayer bailout for nuclear profiteers. We need value for our tax dollars...end the government bailouts for corporate profiteers!

Quote for the Day involves Nuclear Reality

"As a physician, I contend that nuclear technology threatens life on our planet with extinction. If present trends continue, the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink will soon be contaminated with enough radioactive pollutants to pose a potential health hazard far greater than any plague humanity has ever experienced." --Dr. Helen Caldicott

Water Story

Virginia needs more tax money. Our greatest resource is our water.

Why not have a bottle deposit to protect our water and use this money for protecting our water and our environment?

And while you are thinking about water....remember we need to protect our water.

Support Virginia's moratorium on uranium mining.

Nuclear Energy is too Expensive!

Why is tax money being spent on nuclear when it's now proven that solar is CHEAPER than nuclear and everyone knows it's cleaner and safer? This should end all arguments on the need to mine uranium for nuclear energy now. This gap will only widen with increasing costs of nuclear energy versus decreasing costs of solar energy. Cheaper and getting cheaper versus more expensive and getting more expensive. Source

Radiation is Dangerous...

With anti-uranium moratorium lobbyists visiting our elected officials in Richmond to hurry up and lift our uranium moratorium whose side do you think our state government is on....the few folks who want to get rich off uranium mining or the people of Virginia who will bear the consequences? Don't forget to ask who is filling their campaign coffers.

I contend Virginia will lose more jobs than are gained from this insane idea to make Virginia the first wet climate to mine uranium.

Folks in Arizona just beat back the uranium mining interests...they know better than to trust this industry.

Remember uranium is dangerous....radiation is dangerous. Go on facebook and friend Uranium Free Virginia. Research this for yourself...give your insurance company a call...they won't insure your home or property for any damages from this venture.

Knowledge is power. Educate yourself then spread the word.

Can't trust Big Corps....

Look how BP was able to cover up their oil....will anyone make them clean up their mess?

IF the USA can't make BP clean up their mess how is Virginia going to regulate dangerous uranium mining?

Streamkiller Bill Passes

The Virginia Senate and House have both passed legislation (SB 1025 and HB 2123) in an attempt to limit federal regulation of mountaintop removal coal mining permits under the Clean Water Act. Governor Bob McDonnell is expected to sign the legislation into law. This legislation takes existing authority away from the citizen water control board and places it solely at the discretion of the Director of the Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy (DMME). By giving this authority to a single political appointee, we lose the expert guidance during the permitting process by the citizen field experts who sit on the water control board. This maneuver also leaves questions as to its legality since our EPA-approved permitting process gives this authority directly to the board. Senators Ticer, Whipple, McEachin, Petersen, and Marsden stood up for clean water and opposed the Senate bill in committee. Please email your senator today to tell them how you feel about their vote.

Will Virginia become a sacrifice zone?

I'm starting to understand why the places where uranium is mined are called sacrifice zones or dead zones. There are no regulation concerning the radioactive waste and how it should be handled. This is shocking. No wonder they have a history of mining in desert areas that are sparsely populated.

For the past two years, a conservative Civility Project has attempted to get Republicans and Conservatives to make the following pledge:

I will be civil in my public discourse and behavior.

I will be respectful of others whether or not I agree with them.

I will stand against incivility when I see it.

The three signers were: Senator Joseph Leiberman, Representative Frank Wolf, and Representative Sue Myrick.

According to the founder of the Civility Project, Mark DeMoss:
The worst e-mails I received about the civility project were from conservatives with just unbelievable language about communists, and some words I wouldn't use in this phone call," DeMoss told The Times. "This political divide has become so sharp that everything is black and white, and too many conservatives can see no redeeming value in any liberal or Democrat. That would probably be true about some liberals going the other direction, but I didn't hear from them.

Toxic speech has consequences

According to Bill Press:
And it’s no accident something like this happened in America after a season of gun-filled rhetoric from right-wing politicians. Sharron Angle called for “Second Amendment remedies.” Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) urged her constituents to be “armed and dangerous.” Jesse Kelly, Giffords’s Republican opponent in November, invited voters to shoot a fully automatic M16 with him in order to “Remove Gabrielle Giffords from Office.” And, of course, there was Sarah Palin’s disgusting crosshairs map.

Make no mistake about it. Words have consequences. This is one more case of anti-government hate rhetoric leading to violence against government officials. And the more we tolerate this kind of toxic talk from politicians and right-wing talk show hosts, the more of this senseless violence we’re going to see.

Virginia is not set up for Uranium Mining.

Think about it....the issue is NOT jobs. That's the camouflage to put everyone at risk so a "Few" can make billions and leave the rest of us with the clean up bills.

If the US government can't control the corporations that are destroying our environment the how can Virginia's state government even hope to regulate the uranium interests?
