The Department of Energy Lost Plutonium Last Year, But That’s Not Even the Scariest Part

Published

on

In case you are in need of a daily dose of fright, allow me to introduce you to a story that is more terrifying than anything you will find in a Stephen King novel.

Last year, in March, thieves managed to find a way to steal plutonium from the Department of Energy. It’s been sixteen months since this happened, and the scary part is, the stuff is still missing.

Just think of all the awful things wicked men could be cooking up with this stuff and how much danger it’s still being out there is putting American citizens in.

In March 2017, two security experts from the Department of Energy were transporting two plastic covered disks: one containing plutonium and the other containing cesium. Plutonium is used to make nuclear weapons (and to power time traveling DeLoreans), while radioactive cesium can be used to make a dirty bomb.

These two experts stopped at a hotel in a high-crime neighborhood, leaving the radioactive samples and their testing equipment on the backseat of their rental car. Perhaps predictably, the next morning they found that their car had been broken into and the plutonium, cesium, and their own equipment was gone.

None of it has ever been found.

Since the incident, neither the FBI nor local law enforcement has publicly acknowledged what happened. After learning about it from a mention in an internal Department of Energy Report, the Center for Public Integrity (CPI) used a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain these details from the official police report.

Now, it seems highly unlikely that this stuff is going to be used to fuel time traveling Deloreans, so the real question is who has it and what are they doing with it? That’s enough to keep just about anyone awake at night.

Let’s hope some headway is made in this case soon and the plutonium is found and accounted for.

DC Mayor Now Bribing Children to Get Vaccine with Gift Cards, AirPods

Unbelievable.

Published

The Biden Administration is coming to a startling realization in recent weeks, as the number of folks who aren’t vaccinated approaches the number of folks who won’t be vaccinated. As it stands today, about half to the nation is inoculated, with the other half largely unwilling to go down that road.  In order to reach herd immunity, experts suggest that as many as 70% of us will need to have COVID antibodies – a fact that has prompted a number of municipalities to work up programs to entice Americans to get the jab. In DC, they are now targeting children with these incentives. Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Thursday the city will offer cash and goodies to children from August 7 as gifts for those who receive their first shot of the coronavirus vaccine. Bowser previewed the August reward program saying, “All DC youth can claim their free COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] vaccine” at three locations in D.C., adding the “youth can receive a $51 VISA gift card.” Additional prizes will see, “The first 400 youth to get vaccinated at each site will have the option to forgo their gift card and instead receive a pair of AirPods.” And the parents are being targeted as well. She revealed other enticements, saying “parents/guardians will also get one $51 VISA gift card,” adding the gift cards are “per child vaccinated,” which could be lucrative for families with multiple children. The announcement comes on the heels of a similar bribe by NYC officials who offered $100 to anyone willing to get the jab.

Delta Info Leaked: CDC Says It’s More Transmissible Than Smallpox

That can’t be good.

Published

We are now in month 17 of our “2-week lockdown”.  You remember?  The one that was meant to “flatten the curve” two St. Patrick’s Days ago. So, nearly a year-and-a-half later, we are now dealing with something called the “delta” variant, and a return to the masks and restrictions that marred society during the early days of the pandemic. The CDC’s guidance on the matter changed abruptly this week, drawing a great deal of criticism from Americans the nation over.  Now, a leaked document appears to show why the organization changed their tune. The Delta variant is much more contagious, more likely to break through protections afforded by the vaccines and may cause more severe disease than all other known versions of the virus, according to an internal presentation circulated within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky, the director of the agency, acknowledged on Tuesday that vaccinated people with so-called breakthrough infections of the Delta variant carry just as much virus in the nose and throat as unvaccinated people, and may spread it just as readily, if less often. And, when compared to other infamous outbreaks, “delta” holds its own. The Delta variant is moretransmissible than the viruses that cause MERS, SARS, Ebola, the common cold, the seasonal flu and smallpox, and it is as contagious as chickenpox, according to the document, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times. The immediate next step for the agency is to “acknowledge the war has changed,” the document said. Its contents were first reported by The Washington Post on Thursday evening. The news comes just a children the nation over are preparing to head back to the classroom, and with cooler, drier weather just around the corner to drive some of us back indoors.
