SNOPES FACT CHECK: Did a Russian Asbestos Company Put Trump’s Face on Their Product?

A Russian asbestos company placed a seal with the face of President Donald Trump on their product with the note “Approved by Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States.”

On 25 June 2018, a Russian mining company named Uralasbest, which is one of the world’s largest producers of asbestos, posted a message of support for President Trump on their official Facebook and VK (a Russian version of Facebook) pages. The post included photographs of packed asbestos material adorned with the face of Trump and the text “Approved by Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States.”

      1. a tie between Trump and Hillary

        “Entergy’s campaign of political contributions includes key state and federal elected officials, which the Common Cause report itemizes in detail, including Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Senator Charles Schumer and former Senator Hillary Clinton, and numerous members of Congress, with Rep. Nan Hayworth topping the list of recipients.”

        and [1994 section] –

        Mining Awareness has lots about Trump (on the right sidebar) ….

    For Toxicologists, who work with asbestos lawyers there was one question. How can these little-tiny, mineral fibers, embedded in soft tissue, almost always cause cancer? Little or no physiological explanation for it. The consensus was, that the fibers, set off a lethal-unending inflammation cascade, where the mineral fiber is lodged. An assault, on ones own body, by itself, from cytokines and tumor necrotic factor, that leads to the deadly, almost always fatal, mesothelioma.
    Why is it that sticky jagged fibers, like fiberglass, dont cause mesothelioma when embedded in lung tissue yet, asbestos does cause cancer and mesothelioma. It is because asbestos fibers, are radioactive. They are mineral fibers, extracted from the earth. Asbestos fibers, contain radium. When lodged in soft tissue, the asbestos fibers, constantly emmit alpha rays that are mutagenic, chemotoxic, and carcinogenic to the surrounding tissue microenvironment.
    People forget, that for 80 years, that the government and nuclear physicists, have been lying-their-asses-off about the true nature of radionuclides. They have been lying about radionuclide, lethality in the human body, even in microscopic doses. Even the more diluted emmitors, like the radium in asbestos just sits there in the tissue constantly emitting alpha and beta rays. The smallest fibers of the shit, trapped in soft tissue, always causes cancer.

    This is what a fiber of asbestos trapped in your lungs, stomach, colon or any other soft tissue is doing: Alpha emittor in a cloud chamber:

    Cloud chamber. Alpha particles

    This is the age of ultimate  trump and republican corrumption and criminality . Russia has the largest and, one of the only asbestos mines left, in the world. Any semblance of logic that theyy are not uncaring psychopaths. is all an illusion. Thee republicans, are making trillions on insider trading on the helterskelter tariffs that only make sense, to wall street crooks . 

    They will make trillions from kickbacks from russia for buying there asbestos, so that millions of americans can die horrible mesothelioma deaths

    Along with mineralogical observation, we have analyzed forty-four major and trace elements in extracted asbestos bodies (fibers and proteins attached to them) with coexisting fiber-free ferruginous protein bodies from extirpative lungs of individuals with malignant mesothelioma. Observarions and patients’ characteristics suggest that inhaled iron-rich asbestos fibers and dust particles,  induce ferruginous protein body formation resulting in ferritin aggregates in lung tissue that contain radium from the asbestos. Chemical analysis of ferruginous protein bodies extracted from lung tissues reveals anomalously high concentrations of radioactive radium, reaching millions of times higher concentration than that of seawater. Continuous and prolonged internal exposure to hotspot ionizing radiation from radium and its daughter nuclides could cause strong and frequent DNA damage in lung tissue, initiate different types of tumour cells, including malignant mesothelioma rights and content


    226Ra has been measured in five asbestos group minerals. The activity levels are variable, are consistent with other forms of rock and range from 0.01–0.4 pCi 226Ra/g. Alpha particles from asbestos fibers immobilized in the lower lung near pleural surfaces and in the upper lung on bronchial surfaces may be implicated in initiating mesothelioma and bronchial carcinoma.

    1. In NY I was called to jury duty on this mega asbestos case. The questionnaire took all day, many pages long.
      One question was about Morton Thyokol (cannot spell) and I wrote …”those O rings!” … as the Challenger disaster had just happened.
      Needless to say I was not called back.

  2. Trump absolutely the worst as he is trying to remove all protections. Only a few more hours to comment:

    Last October Trump admin put out a guidance implying that 100 mSv was safe in the event of a nuclear accident. It was repeated three times in the guidance-brochure and will thus act as a de facto rule. Obama officially raised the emergency drinking water rule to 5 mSv. And, as noted above, Trump admin is trying to remove all protections.

    Since Hillary served Obama I will only comment on Obama. On things like mercury, he tried to reduce emissions by around 50%. Trump admin wants 100% pollution.

    Both the Koch twins and Norcross are members of Mar a Lago and have houses nearby. Koch is apparently into uranium mining, though since they are private we can’t know for sure. Norcross is on the Holtec nuclear waste can-SMR board. Doug Kimmelman of Energy Solutions nuclear waste was a Trump fundraiser-donor. The interim head of EPA is connected to Canadian Energy Fuels uranium mining and is worse than Pruitt. I think the high levels of rad in US food was run through under an interim FDA head. Through Norcross, Trump is connected to Kris Singh and thus to Republican UN Amb Nikki Haley. Trump also gave big to Nikki for SC Gov, apparently because he wanted something for his sons. The Norcross NJ political machine is very key and key to what’s bad in both parties. However, another important key is Republican Haley Barbour’s lobbying firm which lobbied for uranium one. I think it’s called BGR.

    The earlier NRC proposal for 100 mSv per year that we all commented on in 2015 is still pending, so they didn’t manage to run it through under Obama.

    Both Obama and Trump have thrown a ton of money to the nuclear industry.

    Trump admin is a dirty everything coup, and looks a continuation of the Bush-Cheney admin. Roger Stone is key in both. Also, Condi Rice served on Chevron Bd. Chevron built a pipeline with Russia and at that time Bush was in love with Pootie Poot Putin.

    Trump should know better on the rad as his uncle worked with x-rays, wheras Obama and Hillary are lawyers. So, his actions are all the more criminal.

    I could write for pages, but everyone needs to get their comment in. It doesn’t matter who is worse, actually, because Trump is president right now.
