Armstrong Economics Blog/Energy Re-Posted Mar 30, 2022 by Martin Armstrong
German delegates openly laughed at former President Donald Trump for demanding energy independence and warning that their nation would become completely reliant on Russian energy. “Reliance on a single foreign supplier can leave a nation vulnerable to extortion and intimidation,” Trump stated clearly. Now, Germany is issuing warnings that an energy crisis is on the horizon.
As Nigel stated, those who accused Trump of doing Putin’s bidding have made themselves completely dependent upon Russia. I do agree that Trump’s “New York-style” did not suit everyone, as Nigel politely stated, but as a result, America has a brittle old man in power who is too timid to speak clearly or accurately. The media painted Trump as Putin’s pawn. Yet, the Steele Dossier proved to be fake. Russian collusion proved to be fake. Most media outlets have failed to redact their false reports, and the public at large still believes that Trump was sacrificing domestic policy in favor of Russia. The clear ties between the Biden family and Ukraine have been ignored. The decision-makers ignored all the facts that were staring them in the face years ago and are responsible for the energy crisis.
