“Tough On Russia” Biden Blinks – Waives Sanctions On Company Overseeing Nord Stream 2 Pipeline

“Tough On Russia” Biden Blinks – Waives Sanctions On Company Overseeing Nord Stream 2 Pipeline

In his continuing drive to show that he’s getting “tough” on Russia, Biden has blinked. Axios’ Jonathan Swan reports a major development Tuesday related to Washington’s push to prevent the Russia-Germany natural gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 from being completed: the US administration has moved to waive previously imposed sanctions on the company overseeing construction of the NS2, as well as its CEO.

I remember the Western media and political figures weighing in that the Crimea Bridge would never be built. They were ever so confident that they could prevent the technology, the resources and the funds from being used to complete the bridge….after all,they reasoned, how could Russia alone, “a nation in tatters” accomplish such a feat? And yet it happened. It has now been open for 3 years and the news has shifted to other subjects, never to return. Yet the bridge is a reality for cars, trucks as well as both passenger and freight trains every single day. Something that… Read more »

Oilprice.com: “As per Bloomberg calculations, the United States imported on average 538,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil and oil products from Russia last year. This was higher than the average U.S. imports of oil from Saudi Arabia, which is estimated to have shipped on average 522,000 bpd to the United States.”

Isn’t it funny how sanctions on Russia didn’t stop Russia’s petroleum products from flowing into the US? Nord Stream 2 gas to Europe, bad. Russian oil and oil products to the US, good. What hypocrites they are!

The irony couldn’t be bigger, as we remember the Orange Baboon’s arrogant bragging about the AmeriCunts ‘Self Sufficients’ was off-course a total exaggeration + full blown Lie as usual. Fact is all the Fracking in DumbFuckistan queezes only so-called ‘Light Crude‘ out of the ground and that stuff is only good enough to be refined to Gasoline and thats it….BUT, for everything else to be refined into Diesel, Aviation-Fuel and all those countless other side products + chemicals ect you name it for a serious economy and as well strategic is…’Heavy Crude‘. The US imported most of their ‘HC’ from… Read more »

Don’t be blinded by the clear anger you have for the USA. What you should maybe try to figure out is WHY the USA did what it did that you identified. You clearly realize that the actions speak far greater volumes than words, but you must figure out why those actions are taken in order to trace things back to the origin.

There will be lots more humiliation to come, mostly self-inflicted but always well-deserved, for the Planet of the Apes.

Not to mention … Poland’s days as a ‘transit state’ are numbered as well. After all, why should Gazprom continue to pay transit fees to Poland when it easily shift that europe-bound gas supply that is currently transiting through the Yamal pipeline in poland and shift it through Nord Stream II and pay no ‘transit fees’ at all ? Of course, that would mean that, in actuality —- Russia wouldn’t be exporting any MORE natural gas into the EU than they do today … but what it WOULD mean, in essence ….. that it would give Gazprom the means to… Read more »

Belarus, too, has stopped using the baltic states for transfer of the refined oil ( Belarus has lots of refineries) and goes directly through russian ports now.

That’s what russiophobia gets you into.

The real question is: what is the business of the U.S. interfering in two sovereign staes, germany and russia, doing business ?

My bad. I forgot. Germany is no sovereign state. But at least lights won’ t go out in germany after Mrs. Murksels brilliant decision to mothball all modern power generation in germany and dream of windmills and solar panels. Thanks to the russians.

Modern Power Generation? There’s nothing ‘Modern’ at all with those, all are ’60s + ’70s technology. All schutdowned Reactors are switched-on between 1962 and 1989, the six remaining between 1984 and 1988. And none of the reactors are by any means state of the art or 21st century standards at all, but the schutdowns are total hastily and irrational. All had at least 10y of construction, shutdowns had nothing to do with the questionable ‘sovereignity’ but a lot to do with Merkels irrational idiocy.

In 2020, one-tenth of the world’s electricity came from wind and solar.

Wind, solar, wave power and geothermal power all constitute modern power generation. Fossil fuels (and that includes nuclear) are being replaced, and that’s a good thing. Russia’s natural gas is a good low-carbon transition fuel so, yes, thanks to Russia.

The right hand now accuses the left hand of being “the most pro-Russia this, that, and the other thing”; while no one dare follow the fingers to the hands to the arms to the torso to the head to check who those hands are connected to and who controls them both.

I think it’s a bit off the mark to say that while Biden cancelled the Keystone pipeline he went ahead and approved Nord Stream 2. There were massive protests and rallies against Keystone both in the US and Canada and all kinds of issues and legal challenges because of the harm it would do to farmlands, indigenous lands, conservation areas, habitats for endangered species, climate, etc. Whatever the decision on that pipeline it was the USA’s prerogative to make it. However, Nord Stream 2 happens to be in Europe so Biden had no business giving his royal approval. In reality,… Read more »
