Wait Until Sue Myrick Sees This

RightWingDad:

Westinghouse is a major operator of our country’s nuclear power plants. As such, the plans, the weaknesses, the security arrangements, the work schedules, etc. of these nuclear power plants are known to Westinghouse management. Imagine if a terrorist were to get this information?

Here’s the good part…Westinghouse isn’t a US company. It’s owned by the British Government. Yes, there is a difference between the British Government and say the Government of Dubai, but it’s important. The secrets to the US nuclear industry are not held on US soil. We have no control over who in Britain has access to this information. As we all know, England does have a slight issue with homegrown terrorists.

The British Government doesn’t want to own Westinghouse anymore. So, they’re selling it…to Toshiba.

Toshiba would like to become the world’s leader on nuclear technology. You see, there’s this little tiny country to Japan’s west that is flush with cash and hungry for electricity. Toshiba is “betting China’s nuclear power market will balloon. Toshiba has not built a nuclear plant yet in China but runs operations in 63 locations there, including sales outlets, distribution centers and production plants, employing 20,000 people.”

So, now, the US technology of building nuclear power plants is going to end up in China.

I  worked in the criminal-justice system for a quarter century. It is run, day-to-day, by the crème de la crème of graduates from America’s top law schools.
