European Winter Holiday With Ursula Antoinette

To stay warm, let them ... burn Ukrainian flags? The reckless EU leadership's day of reckoning draws nigh
European Winter Holiday With Ursula Antoinette

Madame von der Leyen announces mandatory energy cuts across the European Union. Gray Connolly is not impressed:

Peak hours = morning and evening, during the times people are getting ready to go to work, and when they come home. If there's a recession, and factories and workplaces are shuttered, they're all going to be at home. What then?

And what happens when vast crowds gather in the miserable, wintry streets of European capitals, and demand that their governments tell Brussels to kiss their freezing-cold backsides? What happens to the EU then? Serious question. Is Madame going to denounce them all as Putin symps?

Meanwhile, how's it going with the Brexiteers? Not well:

British Gas owner Centrica is in talks with banks to secure billions of pounds in extra credit to meetballooning collateral demands as a result of extreme volatility in energy markets.

People familiar with the talks described the FTSE 100 company’s request for additional short-term financing as “pre-emptive” in case the situation deteriorates.

The move by the UK’s largest supplier of gas and electricity to households is the latest sign of the strains spreading across the energy sector as Russia’s cuts in gas supply to Europe send wholesale prices soaring.

People in Europe will stay warm (in many cases) by burning natural gas-- yes, more in from the US, or even indirectly from Russia-- China right now is getting more gas from Russia than they can use (especially with their Covid lockdowns) an d so is making a goodly profit by selling the excess on the world market whether Putin likes it or not.
Tyler Cowan has a good discussion of the whole business over on his blog, with some commentary by people who know what they are talking about. I recommend it to everyone: https://marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolution/2022/09/the-kremlin-cuts-off-the-gas.html. Bottom line: Europe will be in for some rough sledding. Even in the US natural gas will be more expensive. But this is not the End Of The World As We Know It, any more than the 1973 oil embargo with stratospheric price spikes was.

The Ukraine conflict has at it's core the stated "fundamental values" of the west. When the EU stated that Hungary's anti-grooming law was "Against the fundamental values of the EU."

The West's proxy war in Ukraine is entirely about it's propagation of homosexualism - the ideology of child rape. The west is in Ukraine for the global rape of children.

    Of course, the moderator on the AmCon Discord Diaspora specifically considers this 'against her family' and bans any such discussion because clearly she supports the grooming and rape of children.

      Just say no to the Qanon cult.
      A poster (you?) insulted the moderator with a lurid accusation I won't repeat-- and therefore was banned Rod would have banned that person too.

        Except, I made no accusation against the moderator. I spoke of pedophilia and she said it offended her because of her homosexual family. She was the one who confounded it herself, I laughed at it.

        You are a boomer liar.

        You are a Qanon Qanon cultist, you create crazy conspiracies about QAnon cultists around every corner, because you can't cope with your own boomerism.
