Most smart people go into these things with a canned speech...I like just like winging it on my own. I am a little bit better organized today. I going heavy into these things today with written down talking points today.
My talking point were on my old computer...The screen froze up right in the middle of it.
As you see the NRC changed the routine for this presentation...I couldn't figure why they were doing this. Do you think it was a cover-up?
I knew I was in the middle of a cover-up, the NRC was doing it right in the open...I was unnerved by it all.
Maybe you can choke my down 2013 NRC transcript better than my voice. If anything, it is a record of the times, the NRC and me.
My 2013 Pilgrim plant SRV 2.206 Petition Board Presentation Transcripts:
Remember basically in the early Feb 2015 blizzard NRC special inspection the NRC discovered that Pilgrim cover-up in 2013...withheld information from the NRC.... that the A SRV failed to open when called upon during 2013 Juno event. Entergy needs to be severely punished for this cover-up and withholding information from the NRC.
2013: The final attribute in Appendix M is to consider any additional qualitative circumstances associated with the finding. Accordingly, the NRC considered Pilgrim’s organizational performance during the 2013 and 2015 events, as documented in NRC Inspection Report Number 05000293/2015007. Specifically, during the 2013 event, Pilgrim staff did not identify that the ‘A’ SRV had failed to open in spite of having sufficient information available to do so.So during and after the my March and June 2013 Petition Board presentation Entergy and NRC were involved in a cover-up with the degradation the SRVs.
Excepts in my 4/11/2013 presentation to the NRC:
Post the discovery in 2015 special inspection with the cover-up on hiding the failure of the A SRV valve, this statement was a yet discovered fact.
"Mr. Mulligan alleges that NRC allowing the plant to operate with unsafe SRVs until the next refueling outage and is covering up an unsafe condition at Pilgrim."This goes to show how worthless the OIG is. Nobody every gets to see any documentation the OIG looked into this and their determination is. This distributive OIG secrecy is a protection tool. Nobody can ever challenge us because we never document concerns and determinations. Probably the OIG office is overwhelmed and they can go over concern superficially. Anyways, the OIG is solely the tool of the pro nuclear Republicans congressmen.
"Mr. Mulligan requests an investigation by the Office of the Inspector General for this concern."I believe I made the below statement in a 2009 Petition at Palisades. Then over a host mind boggling plant problems including severely putting their plant a risk and threatening the safety of an employee over working improperly in a Emergency DC distribution panel Palisades got into a NRC Yellow finding. I predicted it all in writing in 2009. I always speak with a eye how my words will look in the future. I was trying to warn the NRC Pilgrim is turning into a Palisades.
I think Mr Giitter was intentionally and maliciously trying to disrupt my massage. Doesn't my words here in 2013 ring so true today with Pilgrim. Just like my words in 2009 Palisades."Don't you wish you had a button on your computer where it would give you a yellow, red, or green light? How are you doing now? How will the whole of Entergy do in a year, two years, or five years? Where will the NRC be stationed in the next decade? Is it going to boggle the mind, what the NRC discovers the next year or two at Palisades just like the last two years? I say they are going to find bigger and more repetitive problems, not that this will present our nation's long-term interest making..."rudely interrupted by Chairman Gitter.
"CHAIRMAN GIITTER: Mr. Mulligan, I'm sorry to cut you off, but I'd really like to stick to the issues at hand. And since we're talking about Pilgrim, I'm not sure what the relevance of Palisades is at this point."I was desperately trying to head off the future problems at Pilgrim. I was using everything I got.
"Well, the relevance of Palisades is that it shows a pattern of problems at Palisades, at Arkansas, at Vermont Yankee, at Pilgrim, and stuff like that. And it lends to a pattern that Entergy is a rogue company and they're out of control. And the NRC can't control them"Was I talking about events in the middle of 2013 or events around Pilgrim in Sept 2015.
Have unimaginable dysfunction been recently going on in Pilgrim. Do you think the NRC can control Pilgrim tomorrow?
"History teaches us unimaginable things are going to go on behind the security fence of Palisades. And the NRC misses the really important stuff, better than the NRC doesn't have the power to make Entergy meet the greater aims of us all.
And so, you know, I was trying to get the NRC to -- you know, to engage with Entergy and behavior. You know, the problems seems to jump into one plant, then jump into another, then jump into another. They must send a lot of personnel or expertise over the troubled plant and then another plant gets ignored and that type of thing, which I'm worried about. And so here, you know -- you know, I'm trying to lay that out. Give me a second here.
And so I just want everybody to understand this, the system behind this. It's not just a broken relief valve. It's a broken set of regulators that creates this situation. And, instead of seeing it in a rules-based type of situation that's primitive at best, it's better to think of this as holistically. You know, how does the political system control doing the NEISO, create stable grid? And how does the NRC control? How does the NRC control the reliability of the Pilgrim station?"Right, they needed a major SRV and switchyard special inspection in 2013.
"And Entergy basically promises that ice was falling off the main transformer and another resister or something like that. You know, the lines weren't qualified for the grid or qualified for the weather and stuff like that. And they promised to look into that thoroughly. And then the same thing (2013) happens during a plant trip with the SRVs and stuff like that.
I knew the switchyard was degrading and other components right before our eye...things were only going to get worst.And then we find out that, you know, they really didn't -- you know, the 2,000 LER promises that they were going to make the grid more -- their transmission system -- their switchyard system more reliable. And they were going to look into all of these ice-falling things and causing shorts and stuff like that. And, of course, then we have the loop over on ice that shouldered the thing."
"So that questions, you know. Is the grid reliable enough to support the plant? Why is the Pilgrim plant having all of these plant trips in severe weather? How come? You know, it shouldn't have happened in 2008 if they did what they said they were going to do and repair and inspect the plant and never trip that plant again.
"How come you can't -- it's easy engineering to keep that plant reliable. How come they can't do that? How come they have a repetitive pattern of not keeping that plant in the condition whether the normal weather or maybe a moderate or a minor blizzard -- how come they can't keep that plant reliable?"This guys was out to maliciously disrupt me. I knew I was in the middle of a giant cover-up. Remember in this time-frame the nuclear Nuclear renaissance was evaporating right before their eyes. Where the blaming me.
Do you really think I was done or was he trying to push me to be done. I think the NRC was afraid I understood what was going on in the big picture?
"CHAIRMAN GIITTER: All right. I appreciate your comments, Mr. Mulligan.
MR. MULLIGAN: You know, this is --you're throwing me off. This is what really is happening here. You throw me off
CHAIRMAN GIITTER: I thought you were done."This is a cover-up
"This is all a coverup to get the plant into an outage to get the plant out of the severe grid crisis with not having a lot of electricity, enough electricity to support the New England and stuff like that."This was a cover-up.
"How come this behavior of harassing me when I'm in the 2.206 process and stuff like that? How come we can't get to the root of this? How come people can't discuss things honestly and talk about it and lay out what they think is the problem going on here? And why does the NRC have to be so militaristic with me as far as disrupting me and all that sort of stuff? You know, this is just a pattern of a coverup"This is a NRC cover-up.
"Why does everybody use rules to create secrecy instead of using rules to, you know, communicate and talk? How come you guys can't talk in a manner that brings confidence to the public at large and a lot of the people around the nuclear And, like I have been saying about the nuclear plants? How come you can't -- what is going on with this militaristic type of stuff with the NRC in attacking people and that type of stuff? Is it where you don't want to get the story out that, you know, the natural gas thing and a lot of plants are threatened."
