On Geo-Political Tumult

On this episode of THE GOP: A STUDY IN CLINICAL PROJECTION

Remember this little kerfuffle: Hillary Clinton Totally Sold Uranium to the Russians!!!1!!

Which was patently ridiculous — as I’m sure everyone remembers from sources like these:

The repeated, incorrect claim that Russia obtained 20 percent of our uranium’

This simple chart debunks the conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton sold uranium to Russia

And even FOX had this to say: Obama-era Russian Uranium One deal: What to know

Through the deal, Russia is able to own about 20 percent of U.S. uranium production capacity. However, Colin Chilcoat, an energy affairs specialist who has written extensively about Russia’s energy deals, said that the company only extracts about 11 percent of uranium in the U.S.

The deal also doesn’t allow for that uranium to be exported at all,” Chilcoat told Fox News. It’s not like it’s leaving the U.S. or somehow finding its way to more insidious players.”

The agreement was approved by nine government agencies with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), an inter-agency group that reviews how certain foreign investments can impact national security. The State Department under Clinton was one of those agencies, though Clinton told WMUR-TV in 2015 that she was not personally involved” in the agreement.

All of which makes one wonder — why in the world would the GOP be so utterly convinced that an elected American official would be willing to trade away national secrets and nuclear materials for simple cash bribes? Surely this isn’t one of those things where the GOPs public position utterly contradicts their private indulgences (you know — like fucking little boys, fucking hookers, killing hookers, and doing drugs), right? I mean there’s no way this is yet another case of the GOP preemptively accusing the Progressives of something just so when it comes out, it doesn’t look so bad for the GOP, right?
