US Battles Russia for Heart of the EU

07/30/201778 Comments

In a nearly unanimous vote on Tuesday, the House passed a bill that imposes new sanctions on Moscow and forces Trump to seek congressional approval before easing any restrictions on Russia. The bill, part of a larger sanctions regimen that would also impose new restrictions and punitive measures on Iran and North Korea, was also passed by the Senate in another nearly unanimous vote (98-2) on Thursday. Unsurprisingly, the Trump administration has already signaled the President’s willingness to sign the bill (the same one that they were just badmouthing), turning an “L” into a “W” by mere say so.

The reaction to the bill from Russia is precisely as one would expect: fiery rhetoric about retaliation and counter-measures.

But what about this statement? “In a remarkable moment of candor, the US draft law reveals what this is really about: the sale of American liquefied gas and the displacement of Russian natural gas supplies from the European market. The aim of the sanctions is to secure jobs in the natural gas and oil industry in the USA. Political sanctions should not be associated with economic interests.”

Is this (admittedly accurate) description of the legislation and its contents the work of an angry Russian diplomat? A Russian military officer or businessman?

Nope. Try again. It’s part of a joint statement from German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel and Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern. And the two aren’t alone in holding this sentiment. A number of high-ranking European officials have sounded off about this bill, recognizing as they do that, whatever else might be going on here, the widening rift between Russia and the US is a dagger pointed at the heart of Europe…

    Well isn’t that unsurprising. With a rapidly deteriorating petro-dollar, the idiots in government put forth a bill that is so obviously transparent in its attempt to support a failing currency, that even Europe speaks out against it. Even calling on the trump to support it, which I don’t think he really has to do. Call him what you will, and I already have, I do know he is a brilliant strategist. I’m pretty sure he could gather enough allies in Europe to spread their own propaganda to sway public opinion enough to ensure it’s defeat in a re-vote. But that’s just my opinion. In any case, what if they DO side with Vlad the Impaler? What would THAT do to the petro-dollar? My guess is that it would finish it off. While I’m not looking forward to that, I still see it as opportunity. What can I say? I’m an opportunistic person. But, I would rather not be presented with this particular opportunity as it would involve so much suffering. On the bright side, it would mostly be the collectivists suffering. I didn’t say it was a very bright side, but I’ll take what I can get.

    In my view, I feel like one agenda is well unmasked.
    The Agenda of U.S. Oil and Gas Dominance.

    Look at this Graphic of Oil Producing Nations.

    …taken from a huge resource of information about Saudi Arabia at…
    http://911blogger.com/news/2016-05-31/game-thrones-recent-saudi-coup

    Look at the timeline of events posed at Corbett Report, such as the Trump-Saudi Orb visit or the Qatar scenario or Trump’s chemical weapon threat to Syria.

    GAS RESERVES
    Qatar does have an incredibly large amount of Natural Gas Reserves. Massive for such a small country.
    Evidently the top 3 countries with natural gas reserves…
    #1 – Russia
    #2 – Iran
    #3 – Qatar
    #5 – USA
    #6 – Saudi Arabia
    #7 – United Arab Emirates

      American Oil and Gas Production, Supply and Prices – Institutional MegaMoney

      A situation exists with U.S. domestic oil and gas production. Oil and gas prices have been in a lower range for about 2 years. Despite many companies going belly up, the industry is in a quagmire. The “Supply” side stays high compared to the “Demand”. New supplies (new production) of oil and gas can now come into the marketplace quickly, despite OPEC cuts or companies going bankrupt.

      Fracking techniques have now become extremely efficacious for the industry often breaking records in production of “played out oil fields”. Example – http://okenergytoday.com/2017/04/major-producing-oil-wells-oklahomas-stack/

      The only “remedy” which exists for U.S. domestic production (and Wall Street) is to take out some World players, thus lowering the supply.

      Top this situation off with something that has even more dragonfire impact: Institutional Money.
      Incredible sums of money are leveraged in the oil and gas industry.
      It becomes hard to fathom just how much money rides on this industry, directly or indirectly.

      In my opinion, if one wanted to trigger an economic catastrophe which would bring down Wall Street’s house of cards, just let the U.S. oil and gas industry collapse with even lower prices.

      I am not advocating U.S. oil and gas by any means. What I am saying is that America’s financial appearance is propped by foundational pillars from the oil and gas industry.

      • Airean says:

        Fracking: The strange thing about the O&G industry from the independent operator viewpoint is that from a supply angle – nothing makes sense about fracking. It came out of nowhere in the 80’s only because prices were so rigged up, but at normal prices – whatever that is, fracking never made sense. It’s an artificial weird thing. And people used to know that rather than going in and fracking an older field, waiting a few years for recovery resulted in more output than fracking. I know for a fact none of the pre-fracking era drillers can make any sense of it other than learning the skill sets required Fracking in the US makes no more sense than fracking in SArabia

        • nosoapradio says:

          Fracking…

          I’ve wondered about that too.

          It doesn’t make sense unless…

          Petrol really is scarce…

          or by its existence, to ostensibly “prove” the scarcity of petrol…

          or to create false and costly competition…

          or a false cause…

          or as a way of seeing what comes up with that technology…

          or of creating activity where there was none before…

          or to enhance the boogey man of fossil fuels…

          what is the fracking point

          ???

        • mkey says:

          Fracking is run on expenses leveraged against public infrastructure and cheap credit. It boosts any given number of statistics and therefore it’s good for anyone, but the people, the environment and other such claptrap.

        • HomeRemedySupply says:

          F-ing Fracking.
          No kidding.
          I am at the edges of fracking land.
          My son southwest of me about 50 miles lives where they do it all the time…
          …so, people’s well water catches on fire with a match. How do you put out a grass fire with that kind of water?
          …and earthquakes in nearby Ft Worth, TX counties?! — never before until the fracking.
          …and their injection wells where they put the waste water deep into the earth, polluting the huge aquifers forever.
          …Oklahoma now has special government offices to address the thousands of earthquakes which occur.

          Insanity. Fracking insanity.

    • wingsuitfreak says:

      If I sound flippant, maybe it’s because my entire life I’ve been told we are on the edge of a nuclear war and that I should be afraid. Okay, we had a few years for a break when one wall went down, but after a while one begins to cheer for the wolves rather than fear them. Are we on the edge? Who knows. I don’t know the future, but I refuse to let anyone rob me of my joy of today out of fear of tomorrow’s events. If the bulletheads nuke us tomorrow (and I mean anyone’s side) then so be it. If not, death will come one day anyway. And I’ll still be dancing in the streets.

      • HomeRemedySupply says:

        I posit…
        The sanctions are to take off the board game some of these big oil and gas producers or their distribution lines. It is simple big business psychopathic mentality on a government level to knock out competition.
        To me, that was what the Saudi-Trump meeting and Qatar and other things were all about.
        This Makes America Great Again in an economic sense.

        Personally, I don’t think a “nuclear war with Russia” is coming.
        However, the “threat of war” hype is always good for the state and military complex.

        • wingsuitfreak says:

          strategy and psychopathy are not synonyms. True psychopaths are incapable of grand strategies. It is not part of their profile. They tend towards instant gratification.

          The rest may be true, but it may also be totally unrelated to the issue at hand.

      • HomeRemedySupply says:

        The Trump mantra Make America Great Again

        I contend…
        ~ America’s economy (Wall Street) is leveraged to the hilt.
        ~ A large portion of this “insane leveraging” foundational support rests directly or indirectly on the domestic oil and gas industry. If these pillars of support crumble, then too does the economy and Wall Street.

        One of the few remaining, real, tangible products which are “Made in the USA” is the oil/gas production. The dollar banks on it.

        I feel like a major U.S. agenda is to regain oil/gas dominance.
        In order to accomplish this, the remedy is simple… Dominate and control regions of production.
        Thus, other players who prefer not to be dominated (like Russia and Iran) must be suppressed.

    We know the Brits made the first move when they Brexited last year, and that would be in support of continued American Imperialism (or Anglo-American Empire) at the expense of Europe. Therefore, Brexit could be viewed as an indirect, or direct attack on Europe. (depending on how you look at it)

    First attack on Europe was when the Brits Brexited, now the US is following the attack on Europe via Russian sanctions??? Kinda makes sense since Vlad the Impaler is Trump’s bestest buddy, and we know Trump won’t Veto.

    First Brexit, then sanctions. Hmmm…maybe the Russians decided to align themselves with the Anglo-American Empire too? I’ve seen stranger things.

    Wouldn’t it be in Europe’s best interest to keep the status quo for now? I don’t think so, these sanctions will force them to make a choice.

    A) If Russia has indeed aligned themselves with the Anglo-American Empire, how will they react if Europe decides to pivot towards them?

    On the other-hand…

    B) If Europe decides to pivot towards America and London instead, wouldn’t this make them look sorta weak, aligning themselves with those that seek to destroy them? However, they’ll still have NATO.

    *It’ll be interesting to see how both Russia and Europe react to these sanctions in the next few days or weeks. I think it’ll be quite telling.

    • Richard Ran says:

      Hi PF,

      You’re talking about the EU, obviously.

      Just for the record: Europe is not the EU.

    • Hotfoot says:

      ‘We know the Brits made the first move when they Brexited last year, and that would be in support of continued American Imperialism (or Anglo-American Empire) at the expense of Europe. Therefore, Brexit could be viewed as an indirect, or direct attack on Europe. (depending on how you look at it)’.

      Hardly. We had a referendum in Britain which yielded an unexpected result. The main political parties wanted and expected a ‘remain’ vote returned.

      People in this country chose to leave for a variety of reasons. The main rub was that the European model had failed, and didn’t represent the interests of people in this country. It had nothing to do with wishing to ‘attack’ Europe, directly or indirectly. And it certainly had little to do with wishing to align ourselves with the United States. In fact, one of the reasons I voted to leave was concerns over US hegemony and globalism in general.

      • PeaceFroggs says:

        Like I said Hotfoot, it all depends on how you/others looks at it.

        For you and for some others that still believe in the system, you guys believe “People in this country chose to leave for a variety of reasons. The main rub was that the European model had failed, and didn’t represent the interests of people in this country.”

        In other words… the people voted, and you choose Brexit (for whatever reason), and the “powers that shouldn’t be” had nothing to do with it. It was true democracy at work.

        Whereas, others believe the system is completely rigged and the people merely pawns, and therefore Brexit was the end goal of the establishment all along.

        Which ever way you look at it, I believe it’s an attack on Europe, either directly or indirectly.

        If one of the reasons you voted to leave was concerns over US hegemony and globalism in general, than I think you were fooled.

        While the UK was part of the EU, you guys were like an alternative to the US Empire, and now that you’re out of the UK, you guys are gonna go straight to the US.

        Out of the frying pan and into the fire.

        • Hotfoot says:

          “In other words… the people voted, and you choose Brexit (for whatever reason), and the “powers that shouldn’t be” had nothing to do with it. It was true democracy at work. Whereas, others believe the system is completely rigged and the people merely pawns, and therefore Brexit was the end goal of the establishment all along.”

          This is nonsense. If the true aim of the establishment was for Brexit then why were the main parties and the mainstream media pushing for ‘remain’? Elections can be rigged, for sure. However, I’m certain that this wasn’t the case here.

          You’re giving us conspiracy theorists a bad name, PeaceFroggs!

            Hola aloha Hotfoot,

            I don’t consider PeaceFroggs as a conspiracy theorists, but as a psychopath just like the leaders he defends as Obomber or Angela Merkel. In Spanish I nicknamed PF as Rana Psicopático / Psychopathic Frog. And I don’t nickname him like this to insult him, but to describe how sick minded he is. With psychopath you never can debate reasonable or rational, because ….

            • wingsuitfreak says:

              Hola Pablo! Please stop insulting psychopaths! They have a mal-functioning mind, but they DO have a mind. The collectives don’t. They gave up their minds when they let others think for them. I would say it’s sad, but it was their choice. So are you still enjoying the senoritas muy caliente?

                Hola aloha wingsuitfreak,

                I’m only warning Hotfoot and I’m not communicating with Rana Psicopático PF, because I’m aware that psychopaths have a chemical brain imbalance. And when you will argue with them, they only get excited just like their leaders who kill fellow humans.

                And yesterday I had a interesting conversation with an amigo from Kenia, who lives in Holland now. He told me a lot about Africa and he couldn’t understand that African people (Leaders) collaborate with western corporations. I told him that power corrupts every person and that’s why I am against all type of governments. And people who say that they need a government, this kind of people are incapable to manage their own life, so it is better for us all that they also not decide for others how to live.

                I also shared with him this documentary.

                And see how the kakistocracy with help from the IMF, Worldbank and countries like Switzerland rob and steal from the poor people in Afrika.

                Stealing Africa …. Why Poverty

                Stealing Africa describes the tax system employed by multinational companies in Africa. The film looks at Rüschlikon, a village in Switzerland with a very low tax rate and very wealthy residents. But it receives more tax revenue than it can use. This is largely thanks to one resident – Ivan Glasenberg, CEO of Glencore, whose copper mines in Zambia are not generating a large bounty tax revenue for the Zambians. Zambia has the third largest copper reserves in the world, but 60% of the population lives on less than $1 a day and 80% are unemployed. Based on original research into public documents, the film tells the story of global trade where money and natural resources only flow one way.

                I have often wondered if power really does corrupt people or if only the corrupt seek it. It seems to me that those who concentrate on self-mastery never feel this urge to reign over others. But those who have no self-mastery…. well, look around. I have always felt it takes a weak person to fall victim to this notion that they, and usually they alone, can solve all our troubles. Or that they can do as they will. I have no idea what goes through their tiny minds. But I do know they are delusional if they think they rule over free people. That is simply not possible. Vaya con Dios!

Especially when psychopaths like Obomber or Trump rule over others the world become a hell like now and the same will happen when senõr James his amphibious psychopath PF will be in charge or maybe it will get even worse.

                But there is a little bit of hope for Psycho Froggie, because I listened yesterday to señor James his interview at the Vin Armani Show and during this interview señor James said that he also was a socialist in the past, because most people in Canada are being brainwashed and molted to be a red zombie aka socialist. Thus there is the possibility that the zombie brains of Rana Psicopático PF regain consciousness in the future and he will become independent and will not beg for a government. I hope for him that this will happen in the future, so he can enjoy life and regain his liberty. Miracles do happen from time to time amigo.

I don’t find it necessary to truly suffer whenever I dive deep into myself. I used to, but there is only a few ticked off old men in there now; no vicious demons! 🙂
                I confess, I never care about what someone else might be, that is something we cannot know. All I can know is how someone tells me what they are today. If they tell me they are a part of some large group, then I know they are choosing to be something other than a human being. Then, I generally just leave them be. Also, if they deceive me, I leave them be. I am much happier with the few acquaintances and the even fewer friends that this attitude permits.

        Hi Hotfoot,

        “And it certainly had little to do with wishing to align ourselves with the United States.”

        Same here in Holland. When the Dutch massively down-voted the EU “constitution” in 2005, it was against all odds and govt propaganda.

        theguardian.com/world/2005/jun/02/eu.politics

        National sovereignty was the prime motivation. The Dutch had agreed to be part of an economic community, not a political union.

        Cheers from Amsterdam,
        Richard

        • PeaceFroggs says:

          There is a difference between breaking away completely (Brexit), and simply rejecting the EU constitution.

                Hey HomeRemedy,

                “Does Australia’s Prime Minister swear an oath of allegiance to the Queen? I know Canada does.”

                Fact is, the Canadian Federal government “patriated” Canada’s constitution from England in 1982, and in 2003 Canada voted against following Britain in Iraq.

                Demographically speaking, Canada is about 1/3 francophone and is officially bilingual at the Federal level, which irritate some Anglo’s that would like to assimilate us all.

                These die hard Anglo “LOYALISTS” that remain, who’s roots trace back to when their great great grandparents relocated here from the 13 colonies after the Americans won their war of independence in 1776, they tend to orgasm in there pants just a little when they see a frenchy like Trudeau pledge allegiance to their beloved Queen of England.

                That clip of Trudeau pledging allegiance is mostly ceremonial, if anything, Canadians are way more American than they are British.

              • nosoapradio says:

                gosh, well, since I’m on a roll here, maybe I’ll just add the following:

                “…But their enthusiasm for Netanyahu was dwarfed by the deafening applause they gave Macron when he responded to Netanyahu.
                Anti–Zionism = Anti-Semitism

                Addressing Netanyahu, Macron assured the Israeli leader and listeners that “we will continue our fight against terrorism and the worst kinds of fanaticism,” adding: “So yes, we will never surrender to the expressions of hatred; we will not surrender to anti-Zionism because it is a reinvention of anti-Semitism.”

                Articulated in recent years by Emmanuel Valls, a former prime minister of France, Macron’s statement was the first time an incumbent president in France equated anti-Zionism —a fairly popular sentiment in France — with anti-Semitism. It triggered several emotional yelps from the audience and applause so vigorous, it caused the tarp strung up over the monument plaza for security reasons to vibrate.
                There was another wave of applause when, unusually, Macron and Netanyahu hugged publicly after Netanyahu’s speech…”

                http://jewishworldnews.org/6-reasons-why-macrons-speech-about-the-holocaust-in-france-was-groundbreaking/

                So Israel may not have pledged an oath of allegiance to the queen as Canada and Australia may’ve, but French présidents and prime ministers pledge allegiance to the zionist state at least annually in their various speeches to the CRIF. (ze AIPAC)

                Truth is, there are some real bona fide anti-Semitics out there in the world that really do hate Jews with a passion, and they would love nothing more but to see the state of Israel eliminated.

                These people will seek to infiltrate and hide under the guise and cover of “anti-Zionism” movement/organizations, in order to spread their anti-Semitic hatred.

                Governments and/or individuals that do have legitimate grievances towards the state of Israel, need to be vigilant and find ways to boycott and/or protest the state of Israel without threatening it’s very existence.

                If they can’t do that, then they not only come off as being anti-Zionists but also as antisemitic.

                So if I’ve understood correctly PeaceFroggs,

                You think that wanting an end to

                or a racist state

                is…illegitimate… and making yourself look anti-semitic.

                You know Mandela wouldn’t have gone as far as he did with advocates like yourself.

                But here’re some Israeli folks who agree with your idea of boycotting Israeli racism:

                The problem with the hateful apartheid state of Israel is that it’s nuclear. So they won’t go down easy, as much as we might sing. This goal can be achieved only through cultural means, but the issue there is subversion of language, people don’t know what words mean anymore, so those who do feel something can’t express it.

        Wise choice, as RR just pointed out Europe has not much to do with EU.
        EU is a NWO battlefield to introduce ideas of ilks like Coudenhoven-Kalergy last century, UN Sutherland, EU Frans Timmermans and Thomas Barnett’s.

        • Richard Ran says:

          Second that, 4TLeser.

          Perhaps a useful addition is in order, about the fundamental difference between a “nation”, properly defined, and a “state”.

          I’ll use a comment by Bionic Mosquito that I stubled upon somewhere at the Mises.org site.

          Someone came up with a widespread misconception:

          “Nations are collectivist abstractions..”

          To which BM replied:

          “That’s a good one, really hilarious.

          “Nation” is nothing more than kin, family; structures that have existed through all of human history. Nothing “abstract” about it. It pre-dates any state.

          The state, as it has done regarding virtually every voluntary governance structure and institution, has taken over the concept.”

          So that’s it. Europe is about nations, the EU is about a bureaucratic superstate (with CIA, IG Farben antecedents to boot).

          All the best from Amsterdam,
          Richard

          P.s.: as an alternative to the psychopath mantra, I’d like to introduce another psychopathological condition to refer to the scheming statist busybodies: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. They’re simply control freaks, trying to run other people’s lives.

    “The energy supply of Europe is a matter for Europe!”

    I don’t think the US has any business screwing around with European gas supplies honestly. But looking at what they are doing with Turkey and the other middle eastern countries, they are going ahead with their plots regardless of what everyone thinks.

    Like Wingsuit said, I’ve been hearing the fear porn, the hype of impending doom via nukes since I was young. Personally I’m beyond tired of it. The Lamestream (Operation) Mockingbird media has been scaring the American people for decades, fostering this “reason” for military overspending and unwarranted buildup for too long. I still don’t get why Russia is the enemy in this scenario? I don’t think they seek to destroy America, or that they are closet communists like the political class is so readily reporting. I think it’s all a plot to justify a resource war. Greedy corporations seeking to monopolize their energy pipelines and remove the competition Russia represents. The truth that this goes against the capitalist creeds, is quietly downplayed. As the “enemies” Werner Von Braun warned us about through his aid back in the 70’s as he neared the end of his life. I hope people wake up to the truth, that these corporate psychopaths are the real enemy we face.

  7. VoltaicDude says:

    This is great reporting, and with hindsight we can better see the shape of things recently past.

    While both Parties’ are the playthings of corporate (bankster-military-industrial complex (BMIC)) dominion, there is still some accounting for the legacy-divisions between the Parties – although this shouldn’t be interpreted as a capitulation to the Party-system, or as a general exculpation for the Democratic Party.

    Hillary Clinton (HC), from nowhere specific – only generalities such as how she in a repugnant pose went along with the Gaddafi assassination (as required to gain a “selection” seat at the presidential race) and other played-up (not “trumped-up” because she was complicit) façades that could then be further spun into a black-and-white portrait of her as being absolutely intent on WWIII with Russia.

    Originally in her career a Goldwater Republican, she is mostly a “middle-of-the-roader” on international policies. More recently she conspicuously (with deep sincerity?) also posed as a capitulator to the CFR! The WWIII label, while not unimaginable, never quite made sense in its definitive intensity, but it’s starting to – it was part of a duping-narrative leading to the current set-up.

    Certainly Obama was not leading the Democrats to a warmongering front against Russia even in response to Russia’s Syria-intervention – a bold development easily construable publically as an aggression against the U.S. if Obama had wanted to do that – especially in contrast to the ever-present and substantial Republican contingency in Congress eager to go that path.

    Developments in the Ukraine (the BMIC’s punishment for Putin’s Syria-interventions), had specifically been handled at close quarters by Republicans to which Obama had relinquished portions of his administration following the complex (slippery-slope at best) rules of realpolitik that many Democrats have taken up to sustain at least minor checks on their across-the-isle policy-adversaries – all this at the deep-state-level of intrigue which never sees the light of day, and is never allowed to be plainly debated in open, public forums as all of it is disguised under multilayered masks and media deceptions.

    Regarding Russia’s Syria-intervention, it’s likely Obama directly communicated in meetings with Putin, as well as secure backchannels to Moscow, did express his intention to stand-aside to Russian intervention in Syria.

    In short order the Russians accomplished in Syria (against “McCain’s terrorists”) what Obama could only mildly hold back all along, even while giving lip-service to the idea that Assad used WMD (Sarin) – total disinformation that any intelligence channel could have confirmed. So Obama absurdly claimed a line had been crossed and then did nothing, but one has to admit he managed to keep his head about it.

    Then something neither Clinton nor her friend Trump expected – Diebold-types rigged the election, (as in 2000 and 2004) and a complex of motivations manifest (911-style).

    Firstly Trump becomes a bona fide Republican through his swampy appointments (including for SCOTUS), but, simultaneously remains a “Party-outsider” with “suspicious Russian connections.”

    The door is open: Republicans continue to pursue warmongering sanctions against Russia; Democrats “naturally” oppose Trump on “Russian détente.”

    • Ragnar says:

      “In short order the Russians accomplished in Syria (against “McCain’s terrorists”) what Obama could only mildly hold back all along,…”

      That’s the angle the media is pushing, sure. But I believe the truth is that the US, through its proxy partners Saudi Arabia, were training and supplying Isis, while attacking Assad’s forces. The media provided the smoke screen that told how the US was “fighting” Isis. It’s impossible to fight both Assad and Isis. I’ve read that there really was no “popular uprising” in Syria during the whole engineered Arab Spring. But it was a contrived psyop, likely by Rita Katz or a similar group. I think that if the truth ever comes out, it will show that NATO wants access to Syria to push their gas to Europe pipelines. Either that or a similar reason for wanting Syria to descend into chaos like we did in Libya.

      • VoltaicDude says:

        Absolutely, my point was not to deny any of that, but to emphasize that Obama (and Clinton – just like Kennedy in another era) are not McCain.

        Isis, Saudi Arabia, Israel, all these “nations” or would-be “nations” are military outposts of the American Empire.

        Israel, as the original “refuge” nation, created by a diaspora from a troubled Europe that wanted to conveniently export its problems, is not even in any way viable without $4b+/year in military aid (a point made very critical because it’s also a currently-in-progress slow genocide against the Palestinians – the only real (final?) solution to this conflict).

        Al Qaeda, Isis (McCain’s regular photo-op friends for many years) – those entities are America’s unofficial foreign legion.

        Aligned similarly to Kennedy, Obama and Clinton incorporate a more conscious and complex realpolitik strategy than he even thought to.

        They align themselves not so much with Halliburton and Lockhead Martin but more with Big Pharma and Big Media (necessary revenue streams sourcing real power in this NWO)…

        but ironically (and ultimately why they are no different than their friends across the aisle in the long run) with Chase Morgan, Citibank, the Fed, etc. – dreaming somehow that those are more neutral institutions, not the head of the beast.

    2. there is another shooting in Germany, yaaaaawn. A very probable Iraqi terrorist let it rip in a (crowded?) night club. End result: two dead, including the Iraqi himself. For a mass murder, this news falls flat.

    3. in 80 years 6 major US cities will be UNDER WATERRRRRRR!!11!!111!!! Oh noez. Business insider reports, and local “media” carry this “news,” a Google Earth plugin has been made which basically drowns cities. Oh my, oh my, waterworld awaits.

            Albania is turning out to be quite a crime hub, especially since US helped “liberate” (or whatever) Kosovo. There’s been loads of tensions in Macedonia, bordering Albania, over Albanians gradually taking over the country. Of course, Macedonians themselves are a hybrid nation. The tristate “solution” in Bosnia is near a climax of its own, too. Various “media” outlets insist on saber rattling, especially between Serbia and Croatia. As if Russians are going to give Serbia their best gear (which supposedly is best stuff since minced meat) to balance out all of the crippled planes, helicopters and vehicles we’re purchasing from US, Israelis and who knows where else. Of course, the newly instituted draft effort ties in nicely with all of this.

    Russia’s Grip On European Gas Markets Is Tightening

    …Gazprom shipped 190 billion cubic meters of natural gas to Europe in 2017—a record high, according to Bloomberg… … Russia’s intervention in Ukraine and its annexation of Crimea in 2014 led to a standoff between Russia and the West—but Europe’s imports of Russian gas are up more than 25 percent since then, despite a lot of rhetoric in Brussels about diversification…

    …U.S. LNG has begun arriving on European shores for the first time, promising to compete with Russian gas… …For years, U.S. LNG has been billed as somewhat of a game changer, threatening to end Russia’s control of the European market…

    …The global LNG market is dominated by Australia and Qatar, while the U.S. will increasingly grab market share as new terminals come online in the next few years. But Yamal LNG puts Russia on the map, and Russia is aiming to control 15 to 20 percent of the global market, according to the FT….
