Obama’s Next Big Step to Disarm America
No, not just your guns, he has already taken that step… Obama is closing the last remaining U.S. uranium enrichment plant.

Not only has Obama sold U.S. weapons grade uranium to Russia, who in turn will sell it to Iran, but now Obama plans to close the last remaining American-owned uranium enrichment facility in the United States, even as he continues forward on this controversial nuclear deal with Iran that releases billions of dollars to Iran and permits the Islamic Republic to conduct ongoing and significant uranium enrichment.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has informed Centrus Energy it will end the American Centrifuge project in Piketon, Ohio, on Sept. 30, 2015. Notices have been issued to some 235 workers that their jobs are in jeopardy.
"We have concluded that continued support from the federal government for additional data from Piketon operations has limited remaining value," a joint DOE/National Nuclear Security Administration statement said, reports the Chillicothe Gazette.
"This is beyond belief," Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, responded in a statement. "While this administration is greenlighting uranium enrichment in Iran and legitimizing 6,000 Iranian centrifuges, they're shutting down domestic production here in America."
Wenstrup called the closure decision "a dangerous threat to our national security."
As recently as 20 years ago, the United States produced nearly 50 percent of the world’s supply of enriched uranium. Today, however, U.S. production accounts for only about 10 percent of the global supply, with Russia, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Holland producing the bulk of the world's enriched uranium.
One Centrus Energy fact sheet warns: "The United States is at risk of losing its only future capability to enrich uranium to meet key national security needs."
The only other uranium enrichment plant in the U.S. is Urenco, it’s owned by a consortium of European firms, in New Mexico.
Noting that Congress has provided full funding for the project, Wenstrup called the DOE's decision, "a shameful and unilateral move." Centrus Vice President Steve Penrod reacted to the DOE announcement, saying "obviously we are disappointed."
Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, said he was "stunned" by Obama’s announcement. He met with workers at the plant this weekend to discuss their options.
Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said the plant is "important to keeping our nation safe and secure for generations to come." He expressed hope the administration could be persuaded to reverse course on a decision that he termed "shortsighted."
Without the American Centrifuge Plant, the United States will have to rely on existing supplies of tritium, a radioactive material that has a half-life of about 12.5 years before it decays to the point where it is no longer effective. Tritium can be used to boost or modulate the yield of a nuclear warhead. Tritium can also be extracted from nuclear waste produced by nuclear reactors. But nuclear reactors need at least low-grade enriched uranium and Nuclear Weapons need high-grade enriched uranium/plutonium. This is just another step in Obama’s agenda to disarm the U.S. making it vulnerable to attack by any other country with nuclear capability…can you see the pattern of arming Islamic countries like Iran while disarming the U.S.?
A Centrus Energy fact sheet warns that cuts in U.S. enrichment capability are "potentially causing U.S. nuclear plants to become dependent on foreign fuel sources.” U.S. enriched uranium also plays an important role in powering U.S. Navy submarines and aircraft carriers.
THE BOTTOM LINE: "While
this administration is greenlighting uranium enrichment in Iran and
legitimizing 6,000 Iranian centrifuges, they're shutting down domestic
production here in America."
"The United States is at risk of losing its only future capability to enrich uranium to meet key national security needs."
…the plant is "important to keeping our nation safe
and secure for generations to come." He expressed hope the
administration could be persuaded to reverse course on a decision that he
"potentially causing U.S. nuclear plants to become dependent on foreign fuel sources.”
In reading those quotes from your elected officials, do you get the feeling that the Congressional machine isn’t working and has been blinded and deceived? You should! Just maybe it’s the congressional talking heads that are “SHORTSIGHTED”, it certainly is not Obama, he is, and has been, for decades working toward the destruction of the west and the rise of the UMMAH/the world nation of Islam. (Read all of the articles in the hyperlink, it will educate you)
One must ask oneself, WHY’ would Obama take this giant leap toward disarming America, while paving the road for Iran to develop nuclear weapons?
There can be only one answer to that question my friend…and you know what it is.
