In what appears to be a geopolitical message to European nations who support Ukraine, Russia has now cut off natural gas for the next three days, claiming its maintenance on the Gasprom pipeline.
Despite BBC video claims, gas prices in Europe have spiked to the degree that threatens to send many countries back to the medieval period where forests needed to be hacked down for firewood.
On August 29, Tucker Carlson detailed the rising costs of energy in France and Germany, which are experiencing unprecedented price hikes. In addition, Tucker addressed what this could mean for the European countries, which were under only reduced energy from Russia. However, an already hurting Europe now faces a complete shutdown of the pipeline, even if it is for only three days.
On July 11, 2018, during Trump’s official Presidential visit to Germany, he blasted them over the gas pipeline deal with Russia. If then German Chancellor Angela Merkel had listened to Trump, this crisis could have been avoided:
Sadly, but not surprisingly, Germany’s left-wing Foreign Minister made it clear that she doesn’t care what German people think or how difficult life gets for them:
EU leaders are idiots (except Orban).
Please Putin, program the GPS coordinates for the EU headquarter and WEF headquarter into the Satan-2, or is the terrorist leader Klaus Schwab still your boss?

The Moorburg power plant, opened in 2015, was one of the most modern, innovative and efficient coal-fired power plants in Europe. With its two units, it was able to generate 11 terawatt hours of electricity per year, each with an output of 827 megawatts. This was enough for the entire Hamburg region. It was shut down in 2021 after only six years of operation. Now it is to be completely demolished. There is hardly any other example that more impressively illustrates the complete suicidal insanity of German energy policy.
First of all, it is an ultimate MCA in economic and business terms to build by far the most modern, efficient and cleanest coal-fired power plant in Europe at a cost of almost three billion euros – only to demolish it again and dispose of it at great expense.
Above all, however, Germany is depriving itself of an important and flexible factor in its energy security: coal-fired power plants of this type are able to react quickly to fluctuations resulting from the highly volatile and practically unpredictable feed-in of renewables (“flutter power” and the like). They would therefore be particularly suitable in the current situation to substitute our gas-fired power plants.
From a technical point of view and under today’s conditions, especially in view of the existential energy crisis, this destruction of a proven and highly functional technology is a decision that is as ideologically motivated as it is costly. This insane policy of the Hamburg Senate, namely of the Green Senator for the Environment Jens Kerstan, no longer has anything to do with common sense.
Attentive contemporaries are now even asking themselves whether this undertaking might be deliberate political sabotage – with the intention of ruining the already ailing economy, further weakening Germany as an industrial location and concretely endangering internal security?
Btw., Germany also had the safest nuclear power plants in the world before the “globalists” shut them down by the executive hand of their faithful servant Merkel.
