While everyone is fretting that the uranium is leaving&nbsp;the U.S., I&rsquo;m much more concerned with the stuff that remains here. For years we&rsquo;ve been warned of what might happen if a suitcase nuke entered the country. Apparently, we never considered the possibility that we could be providing the fissionable material right here. I&rsquo;m no expert on what safeguards are placed on the raw material Uranium One generates, but the Keystone Kops in D. C. don&rsquo;t exactly have my full confidence. Can you give me any reassurance? &mdash; Melting Down in PA<br />\n Dear Melting:<br />\n Your question is out of my area of expertise, however I do understand Washington politicians and most can&rsquo;t find their rear end using both hands. That doesn&rsquo;t bode well for our nuclear safety. I believe the first line of defense should be our president and administration which includes the Secretary of State, and tragically Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton sold out the country.<br />\n Once again, the media has been complicit in the narrative that Hillary was a helpless victim and not solely responsible because nine government department heads had to approve the Uranium One sale. That&rsquo;s factually accurate but shouldn&rsquo;t be an excuse. If Hillary truly believed Russia was as evil as she proclaims today, then the smartest and strongest woman to ever serve in Washington should have spoken up. Hillary could&rsquo;ve easily shown how strong and independent she was by making speeches, threatening resignation or taking her concerns to the Sunday talking-head shows to prevent the sale.<br />\n During the presidential campaign and of course on her post-election pity tour, Hillary showed complete disgust for Russia and the idea that Donald Trump supposedly &ldquo;colluded&rdquo; with the diabolical Vladimir Putin to swing the election.&nbsp; It was Hillary and Democrats that had the nerve to question Donald Trump&rsquo;s loyalty because of his business ties to Russia all while the Uranium One transaction sits on Hillary&rsquo;s resume. If Hillary is sincere, where was this attitude while she was Secretary of State?&nbsp; I think I just violated the AP Stylebook by using the words &ldquo;Hillary&rdquo; and &ldquo;sincere&rdquo; in the same sentence.<br />\n Also, there&rsquo;s the liberal narrative that this story has been completely debunked &ldquo;time and time again.&rdquo; Really, by what legal authority? The Clintons certainly haven&rsquo;t been pressed on the issue of Bill&rsquo;s half million-dollar speech in Russia or the millions that poured into the Clinton Foundation from the very entities who benefitted from the Uranium One transaction.<br />\n To answer your original question, the scandal brings the issue of our nuclear safety to light and I feel better knowing that President Trump is in charge.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n We&rsquo;re about a year from the midterm elections and I&rsquo;m worried about our chances. The media is reporting that Republicans are more divided than ever and Democrats are licking their chops. GOP Senators Bob Corker and Jeff Flake aren&rsquo;t seeking re-election with their excuse being Trump. Is the GOP really divided or is this a bunch of fake news? &mdash;&nbsp;Suzanne in Louisiana<br />\n Dear Suzanne:<br />\n It&rsquo;s not fake news so much as it is wishful thinking by Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans. If there&rsquo;s any division at all it&rsquo;s between establishment Republicans and grassroot Republicans. I&rsquo;m not concerned because as the election proved, there are far more deplorable Republicans than GOP DC elitists.&nbsp; &nbsp;<br />\n As for Corker and Flake riding their high horses into the sunset, good riddance. They aren&rsquo;t retiring because of President Trump&rsquo;s personality. Their political vanity won&rsquo;t allow them to join the ranks of the other Republicans President Trump has whipped.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n Democrats act like they are morally and intellectually superior to the unwashed heathens of the Republican party. Yet somehow Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Tom Perez and the DNC are claiming ignorance when it comes to the $6 million paid to gather phony Russian intelligence on Donald Trump. How can they get away with this? &mdash; Hand Me the Soap<br />\n Dear Soap: &nbsp;<br />\n Simple. Democrats know the media will carry this water and bury the story. Just imagine the coverage if President Trump paid $6 million to come up with a phony story involving Hillary and prostitutes. Okay that&rsquo;s just gross.</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
