US Continues to Block Russia-Germany Pipeline

Newsmax: President Donald Trump’s top energy official said he’s confident that Russia won’t be able to complete the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in the Baltic Sea — and signaled that the U.S. will press forward with its opposition to the project.

Asked about Russian efforts to circumvent U.S. sanctions on the pipeline by completing it on its own, U.S. Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette said “they can’t” — and dismissed claims that project owner Gazprom PJSC will face only a short delay.

It’s going to be a very long delay, because Russia doesn’t have the technology,” Brouillette said in an interview at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday. “If they develop it, we’ll see what they do. But I don’t think it’s as easy as saying, well, we’re almost there, we’re just going to finish it.”

The pipeline, which would pump as much as 55 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually from fields in Siberia directly to Germany, has become a focus for geopolitical tensions across the Atlantic. Trump has assailed Germany for giving “billions” to Russia for gas while it benefits from U.S. protection. read more

  1. Charge them for the security USA provides.


    By the way, Bloomberg is getting the shit kicked out of himself tonight in Vegas.

    Lie-A-Watha accused him of calling women, “Fat Broads” and “Horse Faced Lesbians”. Quite funny.

  2. Germany has decided to fund Russian aggression into Europe. Americans shouldn’t be paying to protect Germany from the Russians as well as their social programs and cozy pensions. A 25% US-Germany import tax will crash German demand for Russian gas and their self satisfied world view as well as supercharging US heavy industry employment.

    “Only Rosie O’Donnell” works the first time only.

    That is the equivalent of the spider negotiating with the fly how big the web will be.

    Massive trade deficits with China. 90% of critical drugs imported from China. Massive spying from China. 90% of electronics imported from … You get the picture.

    Merkel is just as 2 faced as Trudeau except she is untelligent & plotting.

    Discusting that she would buy from Russia but she was East German. Nato does not want the Ruskies at the UN but they will enrich them?

  4. I’m not sure why the US Gov’t is against this pipeline.

    If we are so pissed off about subsidizing Germany, lets get our military out. If it is not proper for the government to meddle in business here in the US, it’s not proper anywhere. Our government has meddled plenty in pipeline construction here. Let the Germans and Russians make whatever deals they want and keep us out of it.

    I don’t buy that Russia hasn’t got the technology to complete it. If they don’t now, they will develop it.

    We should stop going out of our way to always make Russia an enemy.

    US is against it because of economic sanctions for ongoing Ukraine war, Russian annexation of Crimea, Germany enriching the very bank accounts that funded those 2 fiascos, and finally, the American taxpayer funding the significant amount of US assets that are in Europe to protect those fucking faggot socialists from being invaded by the Russians and the Turks.
