Triad chip?

The Triad chip is coming? There is talk that LANL, LLNL and NNSA in general will be part of a "body chip program". It will make getting and maintaining a clearance much faster and easier. It should be more secure and lead to more accountability when it comes to contracts. Hell it will not only be able to track every country and state you go but may be able to tell which things you read on the internet like which blogs you post to? Has anyone else heard about this? I guess the idea is that no one will complain when it comes to the nuclear weapons labs but this thing is going to be rolled out to the entire government workforce at some point.

Hanford retaliation lawsuit settlement


"Hanford company settles retaliation lawsuit after engineer raises nuclear safety concerns"

"Bechtel National has reached a settlement agreement in a lawsuit brought by a former employee at the Hanford vitrification plant now under construction...Hall was making his second retaliation complaint against Bechtel...Bechtel said that the issues Hall raised were ones that had previously been raised, investigated and addressed. It claimed that Hall was trying to divert attention from his own shortcomings...He was mandated to participate in a performance improvement plan in late summer 2017, which was a sham because the decision to end his employment had already been made, said court documents"

Turning back from nuclear brink

Aug. 6 and 9 are days of remembrance. On those days in 1945, the U.S. dropped two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing more than 200,000 civilians. Those two days changed the world forever. We now know the face of annihilation...

Weapons in he wrong hands

Anonymous said:

In light of recent events in Dayton and El Paso it is our moral duty to reexamine our stance on nuclear weapons especially in light of the date. Nuclear weapons have and will disproportionally effect people of color a fact that has not been considered before. In this light NW are not simply weapons of indiscrimante mass destruction but actually weapons of white supremacy and maybe the ultimate weapons of white nationalism. In light of this California should reconsider having LLNL on its land and the many non-Trump supporters in the lab should consider if they want to be part of the resistance and ask why they are still working at this place. Do you really want to an enabler of white supremacy by working at the NNSA labs?

California’s Historical Nuclear Meltdown



"The accident, which occurred in 1959, is claimed to have released more radiation than Three Mile Island...Fortunately, this reactor was only 1/100 the size of the Three Mile Island reactor. However, it’s been reported to have released up to 240 times more radiation than the 1979 disaster. How can this be? The answer: the experimental reactor did not have a concrete containment structure. Thus, any radiation that escaped the venting system entered the atmosphere...When the Department of Energy came out in 1989 with the statement that the SSFL site was still contaminated, community concern began to grow. A study showing increased levels of bladder cancernearby the site showed up. Then there was the follow up report by UCLA that SRE plant workers who had been exposed to the highest levels of radiation had triple the amount of cancer death rates then those not exposed."

Gov. slams planned nuclear waste storage site
