Assisting 'Invisible Hand Of Market': U.S. Threatens German Companies Over Nord Stream 2

Click to see full-size image

In a last-ditch attempt to impede the Nord Stream 2, the Trump administration began to threaten German (and not only) companies who are involved in it with sanctions.

According to German media, this is a showing of a new, and incredible, “low point” in Transatlantic relations.

According to a report by German outlet Die Welt, the United States is increasing pressure on German and European companies involved in the construction of the Nord Stream 2 Baltic Sea pipeline.

In the past few days, US representatives had held video conference calls with contractors of the project to “point out the far-reaching consequences of continuing to work on the project,” the outlet reported.

The company representatives sometimes faced up to twelve representatives of the US government.

They “made it very clear in a friendly tone that they want to prevent the pipeline from being completed,” the newspaper quoted an unnamed observer of the talks:

“I think the threat is very, very serious.”

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the controversial Baltic Sea pipeline to transport gas from Russia to Germany would now fall under a law that would allow punitive measures, among other things, against companies doing business with Russia or countries like Iran and North Korea.

In response, the German Federal Government declared that it rejected extraterritorial sanctions, since these were “contrary to international law”.

The German economy condemned the threats as an “incredibly low point in transatlantic relations”.

Nord Stream 2 is said to transport gas from Russia to Germany and is particularly controversial in Eastern Europe.

The main fear is a weakening of alternative pipelines and traditional transit countries, such as Ukraine. The US government argues that Europe is becoming energy-dependent on Russia.

The United States had previously tried to impose sanctions on Nord Stream 2. Sanctions put into effect by President Donald Trump at the end of 2019 are aimed at the operators of laying ships involved in the construction. The construction of the pipeline therefore had to be interrupted.

Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed optimism that the project would be completed by early 2021, with a delay of only a few months.

On July 16th, the US updated its sanctions regime against the Nord Stream 2.

Until July 15th, the scope of US sanctions legislation excluded direct investors, enhancing Russia’s ability to build export pipelines before August 2nd 2017. That cut-off date was removed, meaning contracts signed for Nord Stream 2 and the second line of TurkStream will be included.

“The US signals that sanctions could potentially be applied retroactively, including in respect of European companies that are Gazprom’s partners in Nord Stream 2. However, it is hard to see how this could be enforceable; this would be against the law and should it happen it would certainly be contested in international courts,” according to Katja Yafimava, researcher at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies.

“The question is whether the state department has the right to independently enforce the provisions of this law. The state department is formally subordinate to the president, but no separate documents have been issued stating that the president gave the state department the right to impose sanctions from the [sanctions act] package,” according to Igor Yushkov, an expert of the National Energy Security Fund and the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation.

The proposed additional sanctions in the draft national defence act “are unacceptable and contrary to international law, and the EU firmly opposes them,” EU high representative for foreign affairs and security policy Josep Borrell said on June 25th.

The biggest issue is that the US is concerned that there are no buyers for its liquefied natural gas (LNG) that it wants to sell to Europe at prices, higher than those Russia offers Europe.

Sometimes, the invisible hand of the market requires a tangible attempt at a push for it to properly and “independently” settle the market on a desirable scenario.

Could see Germany and Russian peace keeping force created soon enough.

Better in Ukraine

occupybacon

Or in Moscow

Concrete Mike

Moscow is only dangerous to fascist pigs.

occupybacon

In 2000 Moscow was the city with the most neonazis in the world, arond 9000. It was dangerous to not be Russian there.

Concrete Mike

In 2020 most of north america is fascist.

Btw Moscow is huge, 9000 is fuck all! If you know economics so much, you would have an idea of why that 9000 would be so “high” in moscow at the time.

A poor rebuttal.

Lone Ranger

U.S. has already failed.
Its funny see them trying so hard lol.
Another sign of their crumbling Empire.
Good riddance…

occupybacon

Sorry they dissapointed you so badly.

Lone Ranger

I can handle it…

occupybacon

I know, you are my lil hero :)

Lone Ranger

johnny rotten

The invisible hand is just another myth, another scam artfully invented by Zionist bankers, at the verification of history it will be remembered only as a trick that lasted too long.

Lone Ranger

Why would anybody buy inferior quality gas for three times the price…?
Aside from that they cant deliver enough by far.
They dont even have enough for themselves.
There is a propane shortage in the U.S.
UK almost froze to death last winter, they only survived due to Russian gas.
How did they thank?
Russia bad, Putin evil…
How dare they save us, how dare they…
U.S. and UK are lead by a bunch if psycho retards and that for the past 30 years.
U.S. isnt competitive anymore, they dont like free trade and competition, sad…

occupybacon

It’s not 3 times the price, is 30-35% more expensive. There are no such big differences like three times, on the energy market.

Lone Ranger

Thats not what Poles and Baltic nazis said…
Its the same as when Lockheed says how much a jet will cost and you end up paying 2-3times the price they said it will cost.
Ask Japan…
Its 2-3times as expensive ad Russian gas, hence why most of Europe doesnt want it.
Except tards…

occupybacon

I said on the energy market: you pay and fuel gets delivered in max 2 weeks. That has nothing in common with long time projects like f 35 or whatever. So what you say makes no sense.

Lone Ranger

Sure it does.
Aside from that the U.S. cant deliver.
They dont have enough gas, not enough tankers and not enough infrastructure like harbors and pipelines, hubs, so on.
Russia built these infrastuctures for decades with help ofif eastern and central Europe.
U.S. would need a few $trillions and 10-20years to catch up.
There is a propane shortage at this very moment in the U.S. as well.
Its all a joke, and you know it.
Even Ukraine wants Russian oil and gas, they dont like to pay more.

occupybacon

You order gas, oil, grain, goods, whatever, pay the price and you get the products in a ship in 2 weeks, that’s how much an oil/lng tanker makes from Texas to Italy or Poland, Nederlands, France. These are countries currently importing American LNG.

Lone Ranger

In a Disney movie…

Poor Ruskes don’t need to know how basics of commerce, stay hungry and kiss Putin’s pictures.

Russians arent hungry, contrary to nazi bootlicker ukrops…:)
How many times do you have to Kiss the pic of Soros and Pimpeo a day?
Oy oy….

I don’t think it’s photo’s he’s suck …er, I mean kissing…

occupybacon

You can bash anyone from the US, in Russia comics with Putin are banned.

Lone Ranger

Who reads comics these days?
Do you?
I don’t think so.
If it’s Charley Hebdo and Pussy Riot level anti culture than good riddance….
Nobody needs neo trotskyist culture trash…

occupybacon

Cause Putin is god. In moscalistan if you paint the kremlin goblin and is not riding a bear or an unicorn or half naked, with muscles, is like you paint the prophet in pakistan

Lone Ranger

Still better than Ukropnazis where you won’t worship adolf and bandera they will kill you.

occupybacon

That’s how Ruskies are brainwashed, btw do you have idea how many hungarians died in Donbass and how did they got there?

Lone Ranger

I don’t read Disney stories…

occupybacon

You should, it’s about Russian Marchall plan whe bthey invested and reconstructed Eastern and Central Europe and the west was poor and backwards and your family was hired to clean Putin toilet and wiping his ass. And he was kissing your belly while you was wiping his ass.

Lone Ranger

Central and Eastern Europe didn’t get any Marshall plan…
Better luck next time…

occupybacon

Your IQ points are negative

Lone Ranger

Nah, Im not an ukropnazi ;)

occupybacon

There is no such thing, Russians cry foul to beg the West lift sanctions.

Lone Ranger

Of course there is :)
What sanctions…?:)

occupybacon

The ones for Putin walks in 4 legs around EU leaders and kiss their shoes to be lifted.

Lone Ranger

I didn’t notice that.
Ukrops and EU are doing that for Russian gas and oil…

occupybacon

Haha Russia is desperate to sell its natural resourced, or they have famine as usual.

Lone Ranger

I only see the U.S. panicking and trying to twist arms with no success :)
While ukropnazis begging Russia for gas, while genociding women and children.
Glorious banderistan….

occupybacon

Your English is good but your imagination is so limited, you don’t have more than 2-3 replays and all of them from No U category. I have more swears than your ideas.

Lone Ranger

Im fact based.
You….magic wand territory….

Lone Ranger

Thanks, you english is also pretty good.
Almost like were growing up there…

occupybacon

Thanks, I will ask for a rise.

Lone Ranger

??

Lone Ranger

Only famine is in glorious banderistan nowdays.

occupybacon

Ukraine always had agriculture, that’s why Baikalistan always invaded, to steal food.

Lone Ranger

Ukraine didnt exist before 1918.
Russia cannot invade itself…
Poles and Baltic nazis did invade tho, same as nazis…
Who saved the day?
Russia.

occupybacon

Mongols and moscals invaded Kiev, Russia is how moscals call themselves to claim rights iver Kiev.

Lone Ranger

Kievian Rus was created by Russians.
Later it was invaded by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
Thats where two new capitals were created(not at the same time), St.Petersburg and Moscow.
Most Ukrainians still speak Russian among themselves, not Polish, not some baltic language and not artificial created Ukrainian language a hundred years ago.
Xour hatred against Russia is a century long branwashing by poles, baltics, neo-trotskyites, and even the UK and the U.S.
Russia and Ukraine was one and when Ukrainians will wake up one day will be one again.
Except if you genocide most the Ukrainian population, but the west is too weak to do that.

occupybacon

Moscals hate everyone including themselves. Actually the mist they hate are from their own. That’s why the muzik pows were treated different by the germans in comparison with the western pows, cause they are cavemen. There is a vid on yt with terrorist givi beating ukrainians pow. That’s why they blew up each other cause they are similar to isis.

Lone Ranger

Cool disney story…
Sounds like projection…
Givi beat those fucks because they shelled civs with heavy artillery 24/7 killing many civs.
They werent even regular troops but oligarch/cia run paramilitary units.
If Givi happened to be an American, those trolls would have been executed on site.
Instead they got a lil but well deserved beating.
In WWII both the U.S. and Russia executed waffen ss members on site without a trial.
For the crimes they comitted against civs and PoWs.

occupybacon

Givi had many vids shooting from the town, between the blicks with broken windows, he was responsible for what happened to those civilians.

Lone Ranger

Wrong.
They were stationed outside the towns and villages.
But after ukropnazis suffered heavy casulties in close combat they gave up and resorted to terror bombings using rocket and heavy artillery.
Interestingly the separatists were always almost never hit only civs.
Either ukropnazis are the eirst shooters ever, or they did it deliberately.
I will go with deliberately…
I saw on youtube hundreds if videos, followed as it happened almost realtime.
Shooting bus stops, parks, bars….
All packed with civs.
Or shooting the same houses and flats over and over and over again.
Yet nobody is returning fire…
How comes…
You really think you can sell your lies?
Why do you think nobody talks about Ukraine anymore.
Because people know you guys after 6 years, thats why…
Even the braindead western politicans.
Your only friends left are soros, cia, oligarchs and their handicapped nazi wannabe toyboys.
I wouldnt wish that even for my enemies…lol.

occupybacon

They are are permanently in the cities, doesn’t make any sense to make a terrorist simp to accept the truth, all the vids are online.

Lone Ranger

BS.

occupybacon

But where they are?

Lone Ranger

Stationed outside of the cities.
Only administration is inside.
Like in case of most countries…

occupybacon

Ukraine has long range artilery, they would be destroyed in a matter of days if not hours.

Lone Ranger

Both sides pulled their long range heavy artillery back according to the Minsk agreement.
Eventho paramilitary forces have violated it over and over again.
But without the support of the Ukrainian Army they arent strong enough.

occupybacon

Maybe you are right, most of the vids from YT show Donbas fighters meetings inside residential areas.

Lone Ranger

Administrative…

Lone Ranger

Only Terrorists are the CIA/oligarch backed ukropnazis.:)

occupybacon

Even if they were ukropnazi, hiding in the behind civilians make the separatists terrorist cockroaches that need to burn like in Odessa.

Lone Ranger

They didnt hide.
You failed against them and resorted to terror bombings on civs.
Most the victims at Odessa were civs as well.
But you know the saying.
What goes around comes around…

occupybacon

Yeah, most unfortunately. Collateral victims used as human schields by terrorists. But killing those terrorisrs saved a lot more innocents.

Lone Ranger

In Syria that was the case.
Not in Donetks.
Only one killing civs in Ukraine are the nazi paramilitary forces.

occupybacon

Shoting at the Ukrainian army and hiding behind civilians is terrorism by any standards.

Lone Ranger

They didnt hide behind civs.
And they didn’t shoot at the Ukrainian army but at nazi paramilitary units like Azov.
Most the regular Ukrainian armed forces arent willing to fight against their brothers and sisters.
Thats why cia/oligarch run nazi paramilitary units were created.

occupybacon

I am aware that many Ukrainian recruits are not to be trusted and some volunteers brandish SS symbols but Russians cry like babies when they see those and that’s the best part. They are sponsored by a jew btw. So they are not really nazi.just hate Russian imperialism.

Lone Ranger

They are nazis.
Wannabe toyboy nazis to be precise.
And Im aware they are run by jewish oligarchs.
Shameful to the jews.
And shameful to the nazis.
Same thing as mossad and cia running al-cia-da and isis.
How dumb one has to be to fall for it, especially in the day of internet.
There is no Russian imperialism.
Only U.S. Imperialism.
And maybe Chinese, but they are at the very early stages of it.

occupybacon

Ukraine is run by jewish oligarchs too but not as much as Russia. US imperialism is soft, it manifests in a positive way, Russia is poor, they try to stole everything as fast as possible, like the mongols. They are half europeans, half mongols.

Lone Ranger

Russia was run by them.
Not anymore.
If you call civil war a positive thing, or trippling energy prices pensions being cut in half.
Being a cia colony is never positive.
You are mixing up Russia with the U.S. again…
Genetically Russians are more white than Ukrops.

occupybacon

Ukrainians are taller than Russians, Putin, Medvedev, Miller, Soigu are all little greens. Yeltsin was taller but still a mongol.

Lone Ranger

You picked 4 man out of a 150million.
Logical and representative…not.
Zelensky is a jew.
And short.
Poroshrnko fat, avg tall, jew.
Interesting…
Most the Rada is having double citizenship, either U.S., UK or Israeli.
Oy gevalt…

occupybacon

I have chosen your leaders. I couldn’t find someone more representative than leaders :)

Lone Ranger

Not my leaders.
So it was a waste of time…

Lone Ranger

The same troll, I think his name is Kholomosky or something like that.
He said that he is very dissapointed with the EU and the U.S. and his new strategy is to make peace with Russia.
Funny thing is if Russia wanted Ukraine it would be already over a long time ago.

occupybacon

Heh that’s pretty much an exageration. I am disapointed of EU and US too for stopping adding new economic sanctions on Russian companies. I know you will sayy that they don’t work bt Russia was on the brick of collapse, dropped from 5th to 11th place largest economies in 2014 and it was expected to take the place of Germany by 2020. Anyway there are a lot more santions possible and Russian people are not ready to lose their jobs just to take half of Ukraine.

Lone Ranger

Russia has the 5th largest economy by GDPppp, Forex Reserves are growing.
Debt is low.
Taxation is low.
Employment is high.
As usual you are projecting.
Its a civil, not the fault of Russia but the fault if the cia and greedy oligarchs.
Sanctions made Russia is stronger but Ukraine weaker.
Nobody is buying Antonov or Motorzitch products.

occupybacon

Ppp means per capita, I was talking about the real GDP, probably ppp was on the 1st place by now. Luckily they stopped the monster. Your reply would be:
*unfortunately

Lone Ranger

It actually means purchase parity.
Thats the number economists work with.
GDP is only a sterile number wont show you much about the economy.
Indeed, U.S. Empire was stopped.
Than you Russia.

occupybacon

Purchase parity meaning ow many bowls of buckwheat you can buy, but India is in front of Russia and I think Germany too, if you would go there to buy more food, good luck with that.

Lone Ranger

India has 1.3billion people.
Their livingstandards are still low, exactly because of that reason.
Russia and Germany are head to head.
Wich isnt bad since Germany is the powerhouse of the EU.
Sucking dry the whole EU..

Lone Ranger

Terrorists are the ones attacking local civs.
These nazi ukrops failed even against them…

occupybacon

Terrorists are firinfmg from populous areas and using civilians as human schields, like in Idlib, Aleppo, Donetsk. Any army will shoot at terrorists no matter if they use civilian schields.

Lone Ranger

Except separatists in Ukraine never did that.
Using your own family and relatives ad Human shields…lol
Nobody is buying that.
Interestingly the places you guys shot never returned fire…
Nor were there separatist casulties at those places…

occupybacon

Yes their headquarters are in the city centers, even when they get out and shot, they run back in the cities like rats,to hide behind the babuskas

Lone Ranger

Disney called, they want you back…

occupybacon

I will give you an example, Phillipines are named after a Spanish King that conquered the Phillipines. Because of this name and because they speak Spanish, they could revendicate Spain, by the logic you use with Russia and Ukraine.

Lone Ranger

Except Kiev wasnt conquered, but founded by Russians.
The natives were ethnic Russians.
So your analogy is wrong.

occupybacon

Yes but Moscow is not the Russians, they adopted that name to give them some legitimacy over Kiev, it’s a fake name. You know like Romanians are not Romans, Hungarians are not Huns, also Russians from Moscow are not Russians. Those from Kiev maybe a little.

Ukropnazi education is nonexistent it seems…
Its exactly the other way around.

In your parralel universe.

Ukraine was stolen from Russia by Lenin and the west.
Lenin and the neo trotskyites commies were funded by the UK and the U.S.

occupybacon

In 1500 Moscow didn’t have Kiev and was vassal of the golden horde. But secret Russian sources said they have some bases in Cuba.

Lone Ranger

Golden horde didn’t even exist in the 16th century…
Kiev was invaded and stolen by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
Its status was restored after the Poles lost the war against the Russian and Swedish Empires…
And Kiev went back to the rightful owners, Russia.
Sorry to burst your bubble…

occupybacon

It was conquered not stolen, land can’t be stolen.

Lone Ranger

Its the same.
Sure it can.
Whole U.S. was stolen from Natives, Mexico and France.

occupybacon

There is a difference, check your dictionary.

Lone Ranger

I dont think so.
Either way it went back to the rightful owners after Poles lost.

occupybacon

Indeed, to the Ukrainians.

Ukraine didn’t exist till 1918.

It was under Miscow ocupation.

Russia cannot occupy itself…

occupybacon

No, they ocuppied Kiev. At firts Kievan Rus owned Moscow and not the otherway around.

Lone Ranger

It was both Russian.
Poles, baltics and germans brainwashed many ukrops they arent Russian.
Ukraine and Russia was one and the same.

The American people themselves are a bigger danger than even their criminal government today, they’ve become the modern day Nazi. Why?

In 2015 Russia exposed the USA to the entire world for supporting terrorists in Syria, and that forced the USA to admit to the whole world they had recruited — Trained — Armed — Supplied — Protected — Paid — Used brutal terrorists, the “Free Syria Army” (sorry I forgot, Americans like the term “moderate head chopping fake rebels”, it’s only terrorists to the rest of this world, my mistake).

And not one American of any race or colour has ever condemned it? Not one has done the right thing and stood up against it? Or even protested against it? As every other society on earth would be doing, if any of their governments were forced to admit what the USA admitted?.

The only society we’ve ever seen do this before (not even protest against their own country’s killing, once the people found out) was Nazi Germany 1933-1945, and that’s the only time in modern history the people have done what the American people are today, or rather what they’re not doing?

Not one has protested against this? It’s sick! It’s so wrong it’s staggering seeing it? And even worse is reading what these people think and say? We read these people today in utter disbelief? They’ve become the modern day Nazi.

Far from against it, what is the reality? What do we see? We see millions of American people cheering their criminal president?? We see millions of American people chanting USA USA, just like Nazi’s?? And we have never seen a single American against this? There is something clearly wrong with these people? None have any Ethics? Any Morals? Or empathy? Remorse? Guilt? Just nothing? Not a care in the world? The American society does not know right from wrong any more.

Yet one black guy gets murdered by one bad white cop? And they all go mad? Start smashing the country up? Feel abused? Feel Humiliated? Feel Betrayed & Feel oppressed? But wait?

What of all those innocent people their own country has slaughtered, and admitted what they’ve done? Why do we see nothing for them? No protest, anything? Far from it, what is the sick reality? What do we really see? We see millions of American people cheering their criminal president? We see millions of American people chanting USA USA, just like Nazi’s? And we have never seen a single American against this?

And I’ll tell you why! It’s because it was a clear case of the American people themselves saying… “F** them? (Those lives don’t matter)”.

All those innocent people they all know their own country has terrorized and slaughtered? And It means nothing? Not a single damn thing? To a single one of those sick people? Whatever colour their skin? But just one of them gets killed? And it’s an excuse to rob steal, vandalize and loot? They’re without question the most vile nation of hypocrites and scum this world has ever witnessed before.

And I read British people supporting them? That’s no different from supporting Nazi Germany in WW2.

PopAlong

2018, Teresa May announces strikes on Syria? Within 3 hours literally hundreds of thousands of people are stood outside Parliament protesting against it.

2018, Emmanuel Macron announces strikes on Syria? Hundreds of thousands start protesting in Paris.

2015, Russia exposes the US for supplying terrorists forcing the US to admit what they’re doing in Syria and still 5 years later not a single American has even condemned it? Let alone protested against it.

Every other country/society throughout history, who have found out one way or another, that their own country was murdering or assisting in murder, (whether at home, or abroad), have all, at the very least stood up and protested against it. Some have even lost their lives doing so? But every other society in modern history, have all always been 100% against it.

This is the biggest problem facing this world today? The American people don’t know right from wrong any more? They have no ethics, no morals, no empathy, not remorse, or any of the common human emotions? Nope these people really are what they’ve always been called? The cowardly self-righteous assholes of the world.

And with their selfishness, with their outright lies? They’re just the worst society of all time? And so dumb? Well it’s pointless telling them? They’re unable to accept anything truthful? Everyone who tells these people the truth? Is only seen as Anti-American? That’s how these people deal with it? Anything or anyone that shows them the truth about their country? Can only be an Anti-American? Why? Because it’s so clearly a case of the stupid believing they’re smart, thinking they’re right?
It’s that arrogance they all hold that sees them thinking they know better, and they know it all? Just like their very own President.

An Idiot who believes he’s smart, is a very dangerous person indeed. An American Idiot who believes he’s smart, is a very dangerous idiot indeed. (But only to himself).

They don’t even understand why doing nothing is so wrong?
Ask them? Ask them why they’re not protesting against their own governments admitted terrorism in Syria? Go on, ask them? They’ll call you names like a ”’faggot” or something as intelligent? But none will be able to give you a straight honest answer? No, you’ll get every sort of reply you could imagine? But no one will be explaining why they’re doing nothing? No, they’ll all be silly childlike replies? Something as dumb as asking why others aren’t doing anything?

They don’t even seem to understand that it’s only their government who was forced to admit what they’re doing? They seem to believe everyone else should also protest? When we’ve nothing to protest against! No, you’ll not get an honest answer, and that’s because the reality is, they’re all cowards.

occupybacon

Americans have a problem, like me. They don’t watch international news pretty often. Only the headlines. And I don’t read long ass comments. Only few phrases.

PopAlong

So often I read these Americans in disbelief? Surely nobody, let alone an entire society, could possibly be this dumb? It’s such remarkable idiocy it’s fascinating to read them? But to try to work out what they’re all thinking? Or what must be going through their own minds as they type their uneducated denial of all that’s wrong with their country? Must be one of life’s impossibilities? As I doubt they even know themselves!

We hear and read so many uneducated Americans, that are all loving Trump the elite? Saying things like, … “He’s great, he’s incredible, he’s a great president, he’ll MAGA! He’s a powerful leader, and real man”.
… I nearly choked?

I mean you what? Are you people barmy? Let me just get this right? Because this is quite extraordinary idiocy, the likes of which I don’t believe this world has ever seen before?..

So, in the American mind? Supporting terrorism in Syria? Illegally building military bases in Syria? Breaking International Law every day? (not only in Syria, but also many other places throughout the world)? Dropping the largest non-nuclear bomb ever dropped, on Afghanistan? Lying about the USA leaving Syria? To then, the very next day, order an Illegal Cruise missile attack on Syria? Oh, twice? Lying about absolutely everything he said? And not only lying? No, but lying straight in front of your faces? As he then goes, and he does, the exact opposite? And not once? Not twice? Not three, four, or even five times? No, he’s done the exact opposite EVERY time? But In the American mind, that means he’s, what was it? Oh, that’s right… “He’s great, he’s incredible, he’s a great president, he’ll MAGA! He’s a powerful leader, and real man”.

So, did all you American’s bypass an education then? Or have you all merely received an American education, that sees barely any of you able to spell, or even type a coherent sentence?

I mean just how could anyone, let alone an entire society, ever be this stupid in 2020? In fact, could any people/society from anywhere else on earth? Or at any other time on earth? Be considered as dumb as the American people of 2020? I seriously don’t believe any other society gets close? There really isn’t even any country you could put a close second? This is simply extraordinary stupidity? The likes of which, I really don’t believe we’ve ever seen before?

And it’s due to such a serious lack of any sort/kind of education? And on such an enormous scale? What on earth are you American people going to do? You have the world’s biggest Idiot running your country? You’ve got the world’s most (unintelligent) intelligent agency, that hold all of your own lives in its hands? Who have shown over and over again, that you, the American people, mean nothing to them?

You’ve got an entire society that refuses to protest against their own governments admitted terrorism in Syria? (the last and only time we’ve seen this before, an entire society support their own country’s brutal murder once the people had found out, and who did not even protest against it? Was Nazi Germany 1935-1945). But a black guy gets murdered by a bent white cop? You all go mad, start smashing the country up? Robbing? Stealing? Vandalizing? And basically just acted like uneducated assholes. What about all those people you all know your own government has terrorized with bought and paid for terrorism? Those lives don’t matter? No? Nothing, not even a protest against your own governments admitted terrorism in Syria? The only society we’ve ever seen do what you cowards are today, was Nazi Germany 33-45. You’ve clearly got the most cowardly society, along with the dumbest society of all time?
You are well and truly f*****!!

We even read these people running China down today? Is there actually something mentally wrong with them all maybe?
I don’t see China invading countries all over the world? Slaughtering 50+ million innocent civilians as they do so? Nope, I don’t see China supplying weapons to terrorists? Or arming criminals in Ukraine? I just don’t see any of that from China? I don’t see China stealing other countries resources? Or invading, murdering, and stealing all over the world? I don’t see China building illegal military bases in others countries to steal and syphon off their oil?
Nope, that all comes from the USA! The world’s global monster, that’s so out of control today, the country needs removing from this planet?

This is the BIGGEST problem facing this world today! The American people have no ethics, (no understanding between right from wrong) The American people astonishing all see the USA as in the right today? ! So again, I find myself asking these people?…

“Do you all see the USA as in the right today or in the wrong? Your answers will be very revealing? (The easy way to figure out the right from the wrong in all possible war situations and scenarios, when the lie’s from the media start, is to simply ask yourself what you’d be fighting for?). The answer to that question, should be telling you whose right, whose wrong? So tell me, are the USA right today, or are they wrong”?

Ask yourselves — If the USA went to War today against Russia, China, Iran, or N. Korea? Then what would you, the American people, all be fighting for? Then ask yourselves? — What would the Russians, Chinese, Iranian’s, or Korean’s be fighting for? You’ll come to find, … they’ll all be fighting for their freedom? Fighting for their own country’s freedom? While the USA will be fighting for global tyranny? That’s what you’re all supporting today? And if you really can’t see that? All I can say to that is, the Nazi was just like that, they couldn’t see it either!

I’ll just finish saying this… When you’re speaking the truth, no matter if you’re the only one speaking the truth? You’ll ALWAYS be right, the rest will ALWAYS be wrong!

“In 1936 I declared that it wasn’t the covenant of the league that was at stake? No, but international morality? Undertakings, I said then are worth little if the will to keep them is lacking? The charter of the United Nations expresses the noblest aspirations of man. Abjuration of force and the peaceful settlement of disputes between states. The assurance of human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, without distinction of race, sex, language, or religion. The safeguarding of international peace and security”~ Emperor Haile Selassie 1963.

Everywhere is war –

“BLACK LIVES MATTER” IS PROVOCATIVE RACISM? WHY? AS THEY COULD HAVE USED “ALL LIVES MATTER”? AND “ALL LIVES MATTER” MAKES SENSE? AND IS NOT OFFENSIVE IN ANY WAY TO ANYONE? BUT NO? ONLY “BLACK LIVES MATTER”? WELL HOW ABOUT JOG ON AND GET LOST?

IT’S NOT ONLY PROVOCATIVE RACISM? BUT EVEN WORSE IS, THAT IT’S ALSO A BETRAYAL against everybody who has campaigned for years for equality for ALL?

It’s a BETRAYAL against everybody who has campaigned for years for human rights for EVERY citizen of EVERY nation?

It’s a BETRAYAL against everybody who has campaigned for years for the colour of a man’s skin being of no more significance than the colour of their eyes?

It’s a BETRAYAL against everybody who has campaigned for years for there being no more first class and second class citizens of any nation?

It’s a BETRAYAL against everybody who has campaigned for years to do away with the philosophy that holds one race superior and another Inferior?

I can imagine they all feel betrayed?

Here we all are, trying to bring harmony and togetherness? AND these people undo all those YEARS of work? And for what? For the most RACIST “Badge of honour” of ALL TIME? What a shocking embarrassment this is.

FACT = It has NOTHING to do with this country? Only we have so many brain-dead’s here, who we see dragging our country back down with their own hell-hole the USA? Making out we in the UK have the same problem as they have in the USA??? GET LOST USA!!

Deal with your OWN issues, and get lost with all the crying endlessly? It’s pathetic. If you don’t like what you’re getting in your own country? Then it’s up to you all to get improvements in your very own societies? Stop infringing on other societies with your backward racist badges of “racist honour”. And anyone that feels strongly enough, who wants to support them, then go and do it where it might do some good? In the USA Not this country! Who have dealt with this problem years ago!

Do you think these people we see allowing this? Standing up for this racism have not already thought about this? They know exactly what they’re doing, and they all know exactly why they’re doing it?

All you need to do is understand what those three words mean? And it makes NO Difference what these organizations say to you or what reasons they give you? They can tell you until they’re blue in the face that it is meant one particular way? IT DOESN’T MATTER!

What General Weygand has called The Battle of France is over.

The battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilisation. Upon it depends our own British life and the long continuity of our European/Russian neighbours.
The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us? Trump knows that he will have to break us on this island, break us across Russia, and break the European continent, or lose the war. If we can stand up to him? All Europe and all Russia, may be free, and the life of the world may move forward into broad sunlit uplands.
But if we fail? Then the whole world, including all Europe, including our neighbours Russia, and Including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of American tyranny, a new dark age made more sinister and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of a perverted science.
Let us therefore, brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that if the British Isles and its European/Russian neighbours last for a thousand more years, men will still say this was their finest hour.

America ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word — Victory. Victory at all costs—Victory in spite of all terror, Victory however long and hard the road may be, for without Victory, there is no survival under American tyranny.

In War: Resolution — In Defeat: Defiance — In Victory: Magnanimity — In Peace: Goodwill.

We ask no favours of the enemy. We seek from them no compunction, on the contrary, if tonight the people of Britain were asked to cast their votes whether a convention should be entered into (to stop the bombing of all American cities), an overwhelming majority would cry, “No, we will mete out to the Americans the measure, and more than the measure, they have meted out to the rest.” The people of Britain with one voice would say to Trump: “You have committed every crime under the sun. Where you have been the least resisted, there, you have been the most brutal.”
It was you who began the indiscriminate bombing! We remember Iraq? Where you lied to the British people?. We remember Libya? We have been newly reminded of your habits by the hideous massacre in Syria? We know too well the bestial assaults you’re making upon the Syrian people, with your paid for terrorism? We will have no truce or parley with you, or the grisly gang who work your wicked will! You do your worst! — and we will do our best! Perhaps it may be our turn soon? Perhaps it may be our turn now?

The gratitude of every home on our island, In Europe, In Russia, and indeed throughout the world (except in the abodes of the guilty), goes out to the British, Russian, and European airmen, who undaunted by odds, unwearied in their constant challenge and mortal danger, are turning the tide of World War lll by their prowess and their devotion and love of free life. “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few”.

Britain, Europe, and Russia fighting for our belief in our own freedom against the United States of Global Terrorism fighting for full global control and dominance both financially and militarily — American Tyranny in other words. You decide!

And this is how every real Brit would be thinking? Or should be thinking? Because this is how we’ve all been brought up? This is what we’ve all been brought up believing in! Tell us Americans, what is it you’ve all been brought up believing in? I need to ask, as it’s so clearly nothing like we have?

The Irony, is quite a sick Irony too? Because we British always fight against all attempts at tyranny, and always have? Only the UK has fought for the people’s freedom against EVERY attempted effort at tyranny in our worlds modern history.

Whether tyranny over Europe, or over the World? The UK has always fought against it, (and is unbeaten doing so). We British could never support this clear and obvious attempt by the USA at global military control, as well as, global financial control? Because, that is what always becomes global tyranny. We will fight against it though, but never for it.

Before every war in history, as soon as the people have found out it’s heading to war, we’ve often seen enormous shifts in alliances, many times with some of the most unexpected alliances being formed, while the usual alliances get broken, and at times, by the demands of the people themselves. Every War in history has seen this, hopefully it will be no different this time.

Every War in history has been lost by the country trying for domination, control or global tyranny. Not one has ever won, countries with some of the largest, greatest, most enormous military’s ever seen at that time, have all lost, and not only lost but all have been annihilated. The American people would be very wise to remember that. Because there’s a reason for that…

When you’re fighting for the right reasons? Fighting against attempted tyranny or oppression? You all learn very quickly to overcome anything thrown at you, you fight with all your might, everyone around you is the same, so you easily outfight anyone that’s fighting for tyranny, or fighting for the wrong reasons, as those troops all lack any real sort of fight. So no matter what, or how many weapons they may have, they can’t ever match the fight against them.

We see this in every war throughout history, over and over again, we also always see that the troops all fighting for the righteous reasons, like their own country’s freedom, always seem to become invincible! Every War is the same. It will be no different this time, only the annihilation might be much more severe, but just as deserved.

My country Great Britain, must move away from this USA stranglehold on us. Today Britain supporting the USA, is no different to us supporting Nazi Germany in 1939! We fought a World War and many smaller wars to prevent tyranny of any kind. Now today, we’re seen supporting the USA’s attempt at global control, both financially and militarily, ”Tyranny” in other words, only this time its American tyranny.

We always fight against that? It’s in our blood, we’d never support tyranny, not for anyone or any reason! We’d rather die first. If any UK government tried to support the USA in a major War today? This country would fall into all-out Civil War, before any of us would allow that to happen. We’d fight against it though? We’d be once again, on the right side of history, fighting tyranny for our freedom, as otherwise, we must surely know that soon, it will be our turn?

PopAlong

In my country today we have a nation of idiots that don’t know anything about this country or it’s history that all loves the USA? The one country who have always been Britain’s enemy? Even WW2 the USA never joined to help, they were prepared to watch us burn and die, and they were doing nothing? They only got forced to join by Japan, or they really believed Germany would annihilate the UK. The American people protested in millions against supplying us with our own weapons, designs and technologies that were being built in British paid for and built factories and boatyards across the USA, you don’t ever got told that though.

They’ve had their foot on our head since WW2, a War we won? Yet Britain lost because of only the USA. These people we have today actually believe if Russia nuked the UK, that the USA would fire back on our behalf or something as backward? Yet the truth is without any doubt at all they’d probably hold it as a public holiday every year to celebrate the day the UK committed suicide.

Interesting thoughts.
Systematic racism is real, what the blm movement is doing is downloading the burden from the elites to the people.

This systemic racism was put in place to keep the elites rich and power laden, and have a scapegoat ready at hand.

The racism is a part of the corporate fascist power structure, its a symptom of turbo capitalism. BLM is a capitalist designed and driven solution, to keep the capitalists on top, any other side effect is a bonus! As long as the rich get richer.

now, the gas from the disjointed states of A is from the fracking business and if you had allowed the country to be ruined by the fracking you would also need to find the market for the commodity surplus asap.as it is a lot of gas from the fracking is being flared and the price/btu is at 1.77 bucks and a while ago, say 18 months, it was at 4 or five bucks/btu. so the surplus needs to find a new home and the only one reasonably close to home is europe at a price considerably higher than what the russians will charge.

The US is losing everywhere (even from within) and are clearly frustrated which makes them very dangerous. The empire is losing its influence over others world-wide but somehow, those idiotic politicians still believes that they are immortal…that they are the boss of all. They don’t seem to realize that they are facing a decline in power over others. That their ability to shape world events through their propaganda is losing ground rapidly thanks to the internet. People are fighting their lies online and sharing the truth when it is found. That’s the reason why so many US news sites are now removing comments to protect their propaganda. Today, most would agree that the number one terrorist nation is, by far, the US of A.

They are digging their own grave while the world is watching. Their declining moral values and political civility at home, an overconfident and overextended military in foreign lands, obvious fiscal irresponsibility, completely ignoring international laws and agreements when it suits them, threatening allies and using sanctions as a tool to make people suffer solely to push their own agenda and greed, are all reasons for their decline.

When evil becomes obvious for all to see, others will rise up and push back.

Last year, as RAND stated, a war between the US, China and Russia would result in the US having “it’s ass handled to it”. I can just imagine how the pentagon must of been in panic mode once they received the report. Not only would the mighty be defeated but others would bring the war to their shore and that scares the hell out of Americans.

If the US continues to threaten others, they will end up alone, completely defeated and all, without a war. Remember the former CCCP? That’s exactly how the US will end up…broken up and a third world nation.

All evidence to the contrary. The US just forced the EU to cave on taxing companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook etc. Just like the EU has folded on every single topic since the formation of NATO and cave on Nordstream2 as well.. The EU loves to talk but wil never ever back their talk up. The US keeps bitch slapping the EU because it works. The EU needs to apologize to the US for stetting out of line with out permision and start prepairing to got to war with China for the US.

Germany already has a ban on unconventional fracking:

I’m not wrong.

Keep telling yourself that, maybe it will come true.

Car A and Car B are the exact same model but the price difference between A and B was 5000 between Dealer A’s price and Dealer B’s price. Which will you buy? Oh the mileage is the same too. Of course dealer A is a better deal unless Dealer B holds a gun to your head and threatens to shoot you if you don’t buy his car which essentially what the US is doing. Dealer A is Russia. Dealer B is the USA.

I can’t believe countries around the world think , believe and expect to chose what they would want to do in their own best interests. What does it take until they understand that it is what is in the best interests of the US is most important and their own interests don’t matter.

One of those Companies who fabricate pipes for that project is in my town,with friends like these as the saying goes,i blame European leaders who don’t tell the US to f off.

A NATO member that is making deals with Russia against the U.S should not be part of the alliance. If Germany wanna continue that project, they need to leave NATO and be on their own. You need to pick a side, that hypocritical unloyal behaviour has gone too far.

Hey kid, you’re back!! Here, have a candy and go play outside :-)))

Such a stupid comment. They do not make deals against the US, they freely choose where to buy gas and oil (nothing to do with military alliance at all). But I guess your definition of alliance is : obediently serve american interests against your own country. In that case, they are not ‘allies’ they are pathetic vassals that exist to serve their overlord. And yes, in that case they should all leave that oppressive, fake ‘alliance’ that exist only to keep Europe under occupation for 70+ years.

Britain, Europe, and Russia fighting for our belief in our own freedom against the United States of Global Terrorism — fighting for full global control and dominance both financially and militarily — American Tyranny in other words. You decide!

We now live in “new times”.
Times of the dunce.
Times of the less educated.
Times of those who don’t understand & never have understood.
Times that leave you dumbfounded it could ever get this bad.
Times when everything wrong is seen as right.
Times when what we all know as “right” are now seen as wrong.
Times when racism becomes acceptable (as long as you mean it the “right” way).
Times when common sense is as fashionable as pulling teeth.
Times when cool means gay, gay means right, and normal is just a boring distant memory.
Times when supporting your football club means hating everything about it.
Times we see political leaders threatening countries on social media platforms or using those platforms to manipulate opinion with lie after lie.
Times when truth is frowned upon and lies are the accepted norm.
Times when opposition parties question nothing.
Times that sees intelligence censored & dumbness rewarded.
Times when the POTUS can’t spell simple words like “liar”.
Times when having a real opinion is seen as a problem.
Times when illegal can sometimes be legal.
Times when something legal can be classed illegal.
Times when corporations make the law, and only those shareholders benefit from the law.
Times when companies decide what tax they’re going to pay.
Times when loving home and country means you’re a communist or Nazi today.
Times when pointing out the obvious becomes a regular thing.
Times when terrorism is graded by brutality, head chopping is moderate, but fighting against it is extremist terrorism.
Times when people cheer their president for breaking international law.
Times when killing and murdering other countries people (while stealing their assets and resources) sees the people chant their country’s name, rather than fight against it.
Times when protesting about one black man’s murder means violence, looting, smashing, & stealing.
Times when protesting against your own governments admitted terrorism … “Just isn’t worth it”.
Times that are setting up perfectly for the USA’s push for war.
New times Indeed.
