Trump Was Right, World Leaders Were Wrong: Russia Just Cut Off Germany’s Fuel Supply. Who’s Laughing Now? | Eastern North Carolina Now | ‘I trust that Russia will return to 20% on Saturday, but no one can really say’

    As the Ukrainian war rages on, Europeans across the continent are appalled to discover that the man they found shockingly repulsive, Donald Trump, correctly warned that over-reliance on Russia's energy would cripple their entire way of life.

    On Wednesday, Russia announced that it would be cutting off Germany's gas supply via Nord Stream 1 for the next three days. According to German officials, all they can do is "trust" that they can handle the decrease in natural gas.

    "I assume that we will be able to cope with it," Klaus Mueller, the president of Germany's network regulator, told Reuters after the announcement. "I trust that Russia will return to 20% on Saturday, but no one can really say."

    If I'm a German and I'm hearing that, the first thing I'm doing is starting to knit an extra thick Wintermantel.

    The second thing I'm doing is wondering why the German leaders didn't heed Trump's prophetic words.

    German leaders in particular literally laughed out loud at America's 45th president at the United Nations when he criticized their energy relationship with Russia, claiming that they were totally dependent four years ago.

    Instead, Germany opted to listen to folks like Greta Thunberg - a teenager fully indoctrinated by climate change charlatans - and push green energy.

    "Germany will become totally dependent on Russian energy if it does not immediately change course," Trump said before the U.N. in 2018.

    "Here in the Western Hemisphere, we are committed to maintaining our independence from the encroachment of expansionist foreign powers," he added

    The Left-leaning NowThis Twitter account claimed at the time that "Trump made some outrageous claims about German energy at the UN - and the German delegation's reaction was priceless."

    Trump also stated that Germany was "totally controlled by Russia" because of its energy dependence.

    Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel rebutted Trump, saying, "I wanted to say that, because of current events, I have witnessed this myself, that a part of Germany was controlled by the Soviet Union. And I am very happy that we are today unified in freedom as the Federal Republic of Germany."

    Merkel maintained that her nation was free, despite not having reliable forms of fuel.

    At the same time, Merkel praised Thunberg for climate activism and encouraging kids to ditch school on Fridays. In 2020, Germany even began closing down its coal plants and instead promised to create a green energy utopia. In the interim, they would rely on Russia.

    Germany was forced to reactivate coal plants in July 2022 precisely because they could not get green energy up to speed quickly enough.

    Contrary to what the Left claimed, Trump's U.N. claims were not outrageous. They were prescient.

    As we speak, Germans are facing unprecedented energy prices before winter has even started.

    "This is not normal at all. It's incredibly volatile," Fabian Rønningen, a senior analyst at Rystad Energy, said of high energy prices throughout Germany on Tuesday. "These prices are reaching levels now that we thought we would never see."

    The Europeans might not have seen those high prices coming, but those who believe in a true all-of-the-above energy solution that maximizes fossil fuels and clean energy, as well as energy independence, certainly predicted it.

    For some reason, the Trump presidency made the entire world lose its mind. Leaders listened to children instead of taking an honest look at their vulnerabilities. Now, their people are paying the price.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
