Bruce J. Moran, Senior National Security Advisor  SST

President Trump’s visit to Asia is to ensure that the nuclear option is not used and to prevent North Korea from advancing in its nuclear arms capability. It is of paramount importance for every country, especially CHINA, Japan, Vietnam, Russia, South Korea and those other nations on the U.N. Security Council to look to curtail then stop the aggressive behavior of North Korea’s move to create a nuclear arsenal.  How did North Korea come about developing nuclear weapons capability?  Previous U.S. administrations have failed as did the U.N. Security Council in preventing North Korea in developing nuclear arms. 

Terrorism takes on many facets.  U.S. National Security is predicated on ensuring Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR)  attacks are not executed on the shores of the United States. We should be highly concerned with Uranium. Uranium is used in nuclear/atomic (radiological) weapons.

Uranium is a heavy metal that has more neutrons than protons. Uranium 235 is what constitutes the chain reaction – the U 235 atom splits geometrically splitting other atoms given off heat and deadly gamma radiation.

What National Security purpose is served by selling yellow cake (called urania U3/O8 – concentrated uranium) to foreign countries, especially those who can pose a clear and present danger to the United States or the world-at-large.  What is clear is that yellow cake is enriched for use in nuclear reactors and weapons.  Where has been the proper oversight (2010 and thereafter) in the Executive Branch and Congress in the sale and distribution of yellow cake?

Who were the elected and appointed officials in office at this time in 2010 (06/08/10) when the Uranium National Security deep concerns come into play with the deal of Uranium One to JRC Atomredmetzoloto [ARMZ], a mining of arm of Resatom, the Russian Nuclear Energy Agency?

Schumer sides with Romney:

 Russia  'probably our most formidable enemy'

by Pete Kasperowicz | Feb 6, 2017, 1:52 PM   Washington Examiner


Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Monday called Russia a top "enemy" of the U.S., using language similar to and even stronger than a description used by Mitt Romney in 2012, which drew mockery from Democrats…. "I ask my Republican colleagues to put country over party when it comes to Russia," Schumer said on the Senate floor Monday.





In 1917, under President Woodrow Wilson, the U.S. Congress passed legislation titled Trading With the Enemy Act.  The objective was to stop any American from trading with our enemies and the allies of our enemies, during  World War I.


 On March 9, 1933, Roosevelt issued Proclamation 2040.   It referred to the national emergency and again asserted Sec. 5(b) as authority for it.  Roosevelt then proclaimed that the Proclamation of March 6, 1933, would remain in full force and effect until proclamation by the president.  It remains in force to this day.




“AEOI says it will remain under Russian guarantee for another two years from September 2013 “and a number of Russian experts will remain in place to give advice and technical assistance”.* The preliminary agreement states that the first reactor of (Iran) Bushehr nuclear power plant would be operated by a 50-50 Russian-Iranian joint venture during the one-year warranty period. In August 2010 it was agreed that this JV would operate the plant for up to three years before Atomstroyexport gradually withdrew. However, in September 2011 after grid connection, Rosatom said: "According to the Iranian legislation, only a national company can be an operator of the nuclear power plant", hence Russian specialists would be invited to work under a contract to be awarded by the Nuclear Power Production and Development Company of Iran (NPPD), with their numbers gradually reducing. In May 2012 the first deputy director general of Rosenergoatom Vladimir Asmolov said that all operations related to the reactor equipment control and operation were being carried out by Russian specialists. “There is not a single Iranian operator at Bushehr,” he said. He explained that the Iranian party had signed an agreement with a Rosatom affiliate, Atomtechexport (ATE), which operates the reactor unit. However, Iranian operators have been trained in Russia.”

Question 1: Did the Uranium One to JRC Atomredmetzoloto [ARMZ], a mining of arm of Resatom, the Russian Nuclear Energy Agency fall within the trade agreement guidelines within the National Security framework of the USTR, NSC, DOE?  If so, to what degree?  If not, why not?


Question 2: Did the USTR representative notify Congress of the deal between Uranium One to JRC Atomredmetzoloto [ARMZ], a mining of arm of Resatom, the Russian Nuclear Energy Agency?
