The Russia Sanctions – That Weren’t. The backdoor approach is a common tactic employed in politics and can be most convenient when dealing with a sanctimonious, vicious and rather unjournalistic Media Presscorps.
Prodded, shoved and most likely written by shadows within the Left (aka Soros) teamsters, the media has attempted to create a Monster within alien proportions in the name of Russia. Fed a daily dose of 15 billion pounds of engorged Monsanto laden diatribe, the vilification drove the initial sanctions imposed during the Obama administration and a rife of Merkel/Putin rooster pecking.
For the most part, the sanctions didn’t work and actually forced Putin to re-align Russia’s economy on a more diverse strategy thus giving an overall long-term boost to the economy. While the Mainstream failed to take note, governments did not.
Enter Trump. Trump saw Russia as a source of capital profiting. Looking past the shadow vilification, he saw the present and historical truth that had been rewritten to support a Soros agenda, ie, WWI and WWII. Without going into detail – during both World Wars Russia was our ally and Germany was our enemy.
The media has continued to push against Russia, and new sanctions have been the targeted game to purportedly ‘cripple’ Russia’s economy and send them whimpering into a cave.
New sanctions were signed by Trump yesterday. But apparently the economy that is crying foul is not the Russians, but the EU. And to counter the gasp sanctions imposed most recently, the EU is threatening to lift ALL sanctions against Russia in retaliation against – the US.
Why does the EU stand to lose as a result of the latest sanctions?
“The sought [after] sanctions against pipeline projects are designed to boost energy exports from the US to Europe, create jobs in the US, and strengthen US foreign policy,” Harms said.
Sanctions policies are neither a suitable nor an appropriate instrument for promoting national export interests and the domestic energy sector,”
So what is the EU, in particular Germany, all in a tizzy about? The Nordstream 2 pipeline that would extend from Russia across the Baltic to Germany and bring necessary oil and gas inventory. Even though Germany was at the forefront of establishing Russia sanctions, they still were quite reliant on Russia for energy and thus didn’t want to destabilize their own economy.
So how best to twist the knot created by Germany and the EU? Put them in a position of dire economic withdrawal during a volatile campaign year in which Merkel ratings have plummeted already due to the Soros fueled immigrant chaos and spiral Germany into its own recession bought and paid for by Soros.
Because if the EU starts blubbering to Congress and whining about their reliance on Russia and the need to lift sanctions, our gleaming patriotic Congress is sure to follow.
Thus the backdoor is opened, Russia is freed of all the ridiculous sanctions and life in the world of big business can move forward albeit with a wary eye where it should be – North Korea.
