Puting the insult aside...

 

What is the actual purpose for the US to allow Russia to have even a tablespoon of our uranium?

 

What possible good could come out of it?

 

Thoughts?

The real question is why would anyone want to go through life believing nonsense? Forbes magazine published the total debunking of Breightbarts nonsense in a 27 Oct 2017 article by James Conca - here's an excerpt:

In a 2015 book, Breitbart News editor Peter Schweizer claimed that donations to the Clinton Foundation were behind the Obama Administration’s controversial 2010 deal that gave Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium interests.
And by large, we really mean small.
The allegations are back in the news after a report in The Hill last week claimed based on anonymous sources that at the time U.S. officials were weighing whether to approve the deal, the FBI was investigating evidence of bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering by Russian nuclear industry officials designed to help further Russian President Vladimir Putin's commercial nuclear ambitions inside the United States.
The Hill article was seized on by right-wing media -- and the president -- as evidence backing up a conspiracy theory that they've pushed amid the investigations into Russia's efforts to swing the presidential election to Donald Trump: The real collusion scandal, they claim, involves Russia and Hillary Clinton. The implication of the piece is that the FBI investigation should have been known to those who approved the deal in question.

Clinton's State Department and several government agencies on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States first unanimously approved the 2010 partial sale of Canadian mining company Uranium One to the Russian nuclear giant Rosatom, supposedly giving Moscow control of more than 20% of America’s uranium supply.
Obama and Clinton colluding to hand over 20% America’s strategic uranium to the Russians? On cue, Fox News gabber Sean Hannity said this could be “the biggest scandal” in American history.
But here's the thing -- by 20%, we really mean almost zero.
Those U.S. facilities obtained by Russia produce almost nothing. The uranium deposits are of relatively poor grade and too costly to compete on the uranium market. But the facilities do have good milling capacity to process ore, if anyone gives it to them, which hasn’t happened in about 10 years. Theoretically, they could process 20% of our ore, but that will never happen. Uranium One couldn’t give these facilities away.
Besides, Russia can’t export any uranium they produce in the U.S. anyway. They do not possess a Nuclear Regulatory Commission export license.

    why did the Jared Kushner clan go to Singapor and China to try and sell their apartments in NYC and even promise Citizenship papers to anyone who donated $500K.

 

    Why does the US allow foreign countries to buy US companies?    http://fortune.com/2016/03/18/the-biggest-american-companies-now-owned-by-the-chinese/

 

    Or how about Russia owning a US Oil Company:   http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/10/news/economy/russia-us-oil-company-citgo/index.html

Maybe a donation by Vladimir to the Clinton Foundation is the purpose and reason.
