Allen Rheinhart
Democratic-Socialist Candidate for Congress - CD1 - Nevada, 2020

 

This Covid-19 crisis helps to thicken the proves that demonstrate thinly of the lack of competence on the part of our Nevada congressional delegation and our governor.  Every congressional delegation in the nation should be more than aware of what's in Oak Ridge Tennessee.  It is the birthplace of the Manhattan Project.
 
 A decade ago - in 2010 - the Obama Administration changed the name of the Nevada test site to Nevada National Security Site, well, you can change the name of a landfill to Honeysuckle Road, Sweet Daisy Lane, but you can't change what it is -  lipstick on a pig is still lipstick on a pig.  I smelled a rat back in 2010 with the name changed and said as much when I joined both Twitter & Facebook back in 2011. 
A name change that's supposed to tell us here in Nevada to be patriotic and be the nation's nuclear trash dump?  I don't think so. 

 

Every Congress-person in America sits on several committees for oversight of all government agencies.  Congresswoman Dina Titus sits on Homeland Security and other subcommittees (Transportation and Infrastructure - https://titus.house.gov/media-center/legislation/committees) that would be well aware of the Department of Energy's multi-decades long quests to use Nevada as the nation's nuclear trash dumping site.
 
 So for Dina Titus to make pretense that she didn't know that nuclear waste was being shipped to Nevada is disingenuous (essentially admitting to gross incompetence by not knowing what was in these shipments - likewise our own governor who claims to be protecting our health, making pretense that he, too, didn't know what was being shipped to Nevada is equally disingenuous - they all knew well in advance of the natural of the shipments).  I didn't move to Nevada 22 years ago to live in a nuclear waste landfill - I don't think you did either.   I regard everything nuclear to be repugnant and a danger to humanity.  

 

Again, like all our other congressional members, it was Dina Titus' duty to know what moves into Nevada from outside - there is no excuse for this level of ineptitude, by Titus or any other state official.  
 
My buyer's remorse of Governor Sisolak grows ever stronger by the day - he just doesn't get this idea of leadership.  He has at his immediate disposal the Nevada National Guard - he could have stopped these nuclear waste shipments from entering the state, turned them right around and sent it all back to Tennessee - they made it, they keep it - period. 
 
I would have known it was in the works well in advance of the action and if all else failed -  I'd have alerted the governor to mobilize the Nevada National Guard to block the railroad tracks and turn it right back around.
 
The Nevada of today isn't the Nevada of the 1950's, when [then] Governor Charles Russell allowed Nevada to be used to test atomic bomb's - there weren't 60,000 people here back then. Well, now, we're over 3 million people - that's a population larger than many nations. 
 
Let's band together and stop these shipments by the Department of Energy.  Your congressional leadership is tasked with protecting you from nuclear waste poisoning, as well as COVID-19 -  it's clearly failed you on both of these.
