    Columbia University economist Jeffrey Sachs made waves on Monday after arguing that the United States was responsible for destroying part of the Nord Stream pipeline system in Europe.

    The pipelines, which carry natural gas under the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany, have been the center of geopolitical strife since the invasion of Ukraine. Russia nixed shipments through Nord Stream 1 several weeks ago, while Germany blocked the adjacent Nord Stream 2 from beginning shipments days before. Sweden and Denmark reported damage to the pipelines last week as the system operator confirmed that the destruction was "unprecedented."

    During an appearance on Bloomberg TV, Sachs - who directs Columbia University's Center for Sustainable Development - agreed with some Europeans who have suggested that the United States had the strongest motive to carry out the alleged attack.

    "The European economy is getting hammered by the sudden cutoff of energy," Sachs contended. "And now to make it definitive, the destruction of the Nord Stream Pipeline - which I would bet was a U.S. action, perhaps U.S. and Poland."

    When asked to justify his assertion, Sachs claimed that radar data indicated that American military helicopters typically based in Gdansk, Poland, had been circling over the area. He also noted that President Joe Biden said days before the invasion that he would "bring an end" to Nord Stream 2 if Russian troops entered Ukraine. After the pipelines were destroyed, Secretary of State Antony Blinken called the phenomenon a "tremendous opportunity" to end European reliance on Russian energy.

    "That's a strange way to talk if you're worried about piracy on international infrastructure of vital significance," Sachs said. "I know it runs counter to our narrative - you're not allowed to say these things in the West - but the fact of the matter is all over the world when I talk to people, they think the U.S. did it. Even reporters on our papers that are involved tell me 'Of course,' but it doesn't show up in our media."

    While some European ministers said Russia may have destroyed its own pipelines to increase gas prices, others blamed the United States for the damage, which caused natural gas to spew toward the surface of the Baltic Sea. Disabling the pipelines would remove the possibility of Germany caving to Russia and ending sanctions in time to import energy for the winter.

    The German government assumes the destruction emerged from an intentional attack rather than seismic activity. Some have noted that the United States and other NATO members had tested underwater technology months before the pipelines were destroyed. Meanwhile, a report from German news outlet Spiegel pointed out that the CIA had cautioned Germany about possible attacks on the pipelines weeks earlier.

    Ministers in the European Union are contending with energy prices that have increased as much as twentyfold in some member states. In accordance with the European Green Deal and the Paris Climate Agreement, nations in the bloc abide by the official goal of becoming "a climate-neutral society" by 2050. As power prices continue to rise, manufacturers across Europe have paused operations through the winter, while some nations are considering implementing energy quotas and other regulations for power consumption.

Considering what is being reported as the most divisive presidential speech - September 1, 2022 - in modern American history, where over 74,000,000 people, many of whom are OUR greatest patriots, were named as fascists by inference or otherwise: Is Joe Biden clearly capable of governing all of the American People to the betterment of this Representative Republic?
  Yes, it is important that Haters are named.
  No, Joe Biden cannot accept criticism when the real truth is his cruelest taskmaster.
  I have no idea what is going on because I only consume Democratic Socialist Media.

Considering that Joe Biden is considered by so many to be the Imposter President: Is he actually knowledgeable enough, wise enough, patriotic enough to be this Constitutional Republic's president at this difficult point in these tumultuous times?
  Yes, Mr. Biden is thoughtful and kind, and just so different from the "Orange Man".
  No, this representation of "president" is either too corrupt, too stupid, or both to be a real president.
  I just want the fun guy, who knew how to make stuff work back.

While this article may seem outlandish on its face, and it very well may be, one must consider these bona fide truths, America's First Idiot President - www.beaufortcountynow.com - did: On day one of his administration did begin the process of destroying our Republic's Oil and Gas Industry making our self sufficient Energy Creation and Distribution dependent on foreign sources; Then worked with other Democratic Socialist non patriots to destroy OUR economy in passing unnecessary massive government spending bills to raise intentionally raise inflation to record levels; The Fool Biden then single handedly wrecked his retreat from Afghanistan at a level that no Right Thinking American would ever consider was NOT intentional, because NO American President could ever be that stupid (until this Fool Biden); Factor in also that one still must factor in that Simple Joe is also admittedly a full fledged Non Patriot, and, incredibly, one must sincerely, and without prejudice, consider why this Fool is capable of.
