    Odd. My best friend emigrated from Germany and her pov is opposite of this. I'll invite her to join PHW so she can share her views.

    The "President" on Hillary Clinton, BEFORE he became a politician and needed someone to bash.....to get ahead.....Something his base seems to like about him ......the two faces and the orange complexion....or maybe it's his adultery they love so much.



    But hey, when you're a draft dodger (in perfect health?) and an adulterer, a spoiled kid who got a "small" million dollar loan from his daddy.....you feel a little insecure about yourself and you need to start bashing people and rallying the anger in your based because they also feel powerless and perhaps a bit insecure about their ignorance, not having their daddies supply them with million dollar loans or being billionaires like the "working class" man they elected to be their "working class" hero.

    I think this all spawns from simple intellectual jealousy. Trump simply hates everyone smarter than him.

    Sadly that is pretty much everyone.
    Except for his radical supporters. They think he's a genius. But I imagine in comparison to them, he is.

    Well, it is NOT true. Germany gets about 13% of its energy from Russia, not 50%. So if you want to call them 'dependent' on Russia, when they are getting 13% of their energy from Russia, I guess that's up to you, but I think it would sound pretty silly, to most folks.

    Even so, who's to say this deal puts Russia in a power position over Germany? Russia certainly needs to sell its gas, probably more than Germany needs to buy it.

    If so, this is a massive fail. Countries like Germany don't do gigantic trade deals based off emotion.

It backfired on Trump when the EU did not go along with Trump's sanctions. When the EU did not go along with not purchasing Iranian oil. And backfired even more as tariffs on China caused China to stop purchasing US domestic oil. 40% of US oil exports was to China.

    Saudi and Russia slipped in to fill the oil from the US. Earning Russia hard currency that helps them to fight off what little sanctions place on Russia by Congess.

    Russia is building two huge Natgas pipelines to gernany which will help Germany transition fro Nuclear...off coal onto natgas


    This hurts Trump coal buddies bigly. Coal exports suffer...and Remember when China was buying all that specialized US Coal with coke in that is used in the manufacture of steel.

    Oh shit steel Trump is placing tariffs on.

    Trump is a mess. If Trump isn't fucking something up..he eating KFC or playing golf.
    The last president who tried to break OPEC apart was that foreign policy genius, Jimmy Carter.

    Fun times! Gas shortage and rationing was so great!

    *Rolls eyes*
