Mister Fantasy Facts

In a letter last Sunday, Mr. Fantasy Facts (FF) informed us of how he fell hook, line and sinker for Bozo’s obfuscation of the so-called Hillary-uranium deal. A normal person would have been too embarrassed to admit to being so easily duped.

In the early 1950s the U.S., like many other nations, was searching for more or new uranium sources. One of several avenues led to part ownership in a South African mining company. That company was later sold to a Canadian company and the U.S. maintained a share. Later, the Canadians sold a controlling stake to Rosatom, the Russian nuclear energy agency at about the same time the U.S. was selling its share. In any event, the U.S. sold shares in a foreign controlled mining company. We did not sell any of our uranium stockpile. U.S. law forbids shipment of uranium out of the country. Neither Hillary nor Obama could have sold the mining company shares by themselves. Foreign investments are under the auspices of the Treasury Department and the sale was also approved by the Nuclear Regulatory Agency. Selling our shares was a very smart business decision. Was there any negative response from Republicans at the time? None that I know of! So why in the last two weeks? Could “diversionary tactic” on Bozo’s part have entered the picture?

FF was correct about the $145M sale price and Bill Clinton’s $500,000 speaking fee. FF’s fantasies (polite term for fact-free blather) are still many. The sale price was not a kickback. It was based on the value of the stock as determined by the Canadians. As for Bill’s speaking fee, he was long out of office and no one twisted a Commie arm to pay him.

Finally, FF stoops as low as you can go by denigrating Bloomberg for spending $20M in Nevada (his own money) on gun control to hopefully save a life while, by implication, applauding the NRA for spending “only” $5M (member’s money) nationwide promoting death. Folks, this is all you need to know about FF.
