The need to develop Thorium based Nuclear Energy as the major electric energy supply. 16. Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors will lessen the need for an expanded national grid.

Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors will lessen the need for an expanded national grid. The National Electric grid is at the breaking point. It needs to be expanded, but neighborhood resistance is building in many areas where they need an expanded grid the most. The grid is also sensitive to terrorism activities.

As we can see the national grid is extensive. It is also under severe strain at peak demand. Wind power will only increase the strain since most wind power is generated where few people live and work. A way to lessen the dependency on the national grid is to sprinkle it with many small to medium sized Thorium Nuclear Power generators.  They can be placed on barges in rivers and along the coast where the need is greatest,  giving the grid maximum flexibility to respond in  case of an emergency. (To be fair, the Texas grid is separately controlled from the rest of the grid.

One more verse to the Hillary Nursery rhyme: National security threat.


In a leaked opsec (Operational Security} there is a slide showing insider security risks that includes Snowden, Manning, Hassan, Alexis, Petraeus and HILLARY CLINTON.  Facebook page “U.S. Army W.T.F! moments” spoke to The Daily Caller and told them this was the second picture of this they had received.  The Army refused to comment on the opsec.  This picture came from a serviceman or woman stationed at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri.

This adds one more verse to the Hillary Nursery rhyme.

Hillary, Hillary, where have you been?

“It’s none of your business, for I am the queen.”

…… many more verses  ….

Hillary, Hillary, are you THE threat?

“I’m the most careless, don’t you forget!”

The whole nursery rhyme:

Hillary’s e-mail server. Enforcement Proceedings coming?

Attorneys with the U.S. Department of Justice say they cannot make public a classified FBI declaration because it would “adversely affect the ongoing investigation” into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. The recent filing by DOJ attorneys, obtained by, is significant because it not only acknowledges the ongoing federal probe, but also asserts that if the declaration is made public, it could “reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceedings.”

The investigation focuses on two separate aspects: Having classified, top secret and even past top secret information on an unsecured, private server breaking the custody chain. On this her defense is that they were not “marked classified.” There are two possibilities: Either she knew they were classified at t the time but did it anyway, or, she is too stupid to recognize classified material when she sees it.

The other aspect concerns the Clinton Foundation and “Clinton money”.

The e-mail enforcement proceeding.

So what is now Hillary pleading?

I deserve all my cash,

it is all balderdash.

I’m clean, I’m immune, that’s my reading.”



The Keystone XL pipeline decision. Crony Capitalism at work.


The President has decided to delay the permission to build the Keystone XL pipeline until after the 2012 election, thus satisfying the environmentalists that want to wean us off our dependency on carbon based products, such as fuel and fertilizer. The arguments for delaying the decision are nearly exclusively political, while the arguments to build the pipeline are concerns for our national security and economy.

Here is the deal:

Canada has the tar-sands and is extracting the oil. This was not our decision. If we don’t buy the oil, China will.

We are importing crude oil from the Middle East, Nigeria, Venezuela and other volatile places, leaving us exposed to supply and price disruptions.

We export refined products to the Caribbean islands, which by the way have a larger carbon footprint per person than the U.S. This is good business, since the islands are too small for a refinery.

It takes more energy to run a refinery up north in a cold climate than in hot, humid Baytown, Texas.

The last time a major oil refinery was built in the U.S was 1976. A small refinery was built in 1993, in Valdez, Alaska. The  US. regulatory climate is hostile to refineries. Colombia, O.K, US. No.

It costs about $5 per barrel to ship oil through a pipeline from Canada to Texas, nearly all of it capital costs. It costs about $15 per barrel to ship it via railway; much of it is energy cost.

Warren Buffet’s bought Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad in February 2010 and paid 44 Billion dollars for it. The railroad paid Berkshire Hathaway 2.25 Billion in dividends during the first 13 months. Warren Buffet bought the railroad after Obama took office.

This railroad can handle all the oil shipped from Canada to Huston during the next decade, even longer with expansion. It is therefore in Buffet’s interest not to build the pipeline.

Warren Buffet is a major player in the Obama Administration; he has frequent access to the White House and is a major contributor to Obama’s campaign.

Sarah Palin succinctly coined the phrase: “This is Crony Capitalism.”
