No Exit Strategy - Dismantling of the European Union | by Oui on Oct 7th, 2021 |

As Slovenia Summit extends invitation to expansion into the Western Balkans, key countries turn their backs on Brussels.  

On all levels the EU has come up short to deliver policy ahead of crisis. The woes are added very few months and patience is running out. More nations are putting in a great effort to undermine the union, no need to look at exterior players like Russia and Putin or the United States and Trump/Biden. NATO and Stoltenberg adds fuel to the burning fires of discontent.

For two decades, the EU Commission and its president(s) have not effectively shown leadership for a stronger bond between EU countries. How to get rid of unwilling nations like Austria, Hungary and Poland. Threats just do not work and power of sanctions are quite limited. The Constitutional Court in Warsaw put a stake into the beating heart of Brussels.

🇪🇺 vs. 🇺🇸

When the EU becomes a dysfunctioning entity similar to the United States of America divided into Red and Blue, the beginning of the end has passed a critical point.

Be wise, stop the expansion to please NATO and the US. Will the EU be able to stop the twist between Old and New Europe? I'm far from optimistic.

Russia long term gas deals

The 2 years delay in Nord Stream 2 has cost Russia billions and it was forced to invest in new Siberian pipelines to China. The higher gas price is quite welcome for Russia's Treasury. Putin promised to increase delivery to Europe, however this will not ease the pressure on price as there are too many uncertainties due to winter cold and low storage level in Europe. Coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, Europe has lost crucial time to energy transition and investment in durable and sustainable solutions.

A War of Choice NATO (US) vs Russia on Ukrainian Battlefield

From the diaries ...

France joins Germany in accusing US of using Ukraine war to overcharge for gas | Balkan Green Energy News - Oct. 12, 2022 |

Senior officials of the EU's two biggest powers, France and Germany, have accused the US of overcharging for liquefied natural gas (LNG) and using the war in Ukraine and the energy crisis to turn a profit and make Europe dependent on its gas.

Before the war in Ukraine, Russia was Europe's biggest natural gas supplier, with a share of 55%, mainly due to lower prices compared to LNG deliveries. However, after the war broke out Europe began to introduce sanctions against Russia, reducing purchases from Gazprom, while the Russian state-owned energy giant responded by decreasing its gas deliveries to EU countries.

The EU was forced to start importing LNG, from the US as well as other countries, but the US' share has increased sharply, from 28% to 45%. On the other hand, deliveries from Russia have dropped by 75%.

The US has been criticized by French Finance Minister Bruno Le Mair and German Economy Minister Robert Habeck.

Le Mair recently told French MPs that the conflict in Ukraine must not result in the US' economic domination and a weakened Europe.

The US should not be allowed to dominate the global energy market as the EU suffers the consequences of the conflict in Ukraine, said Le Mair.

He also said it is unacceptable to let the US export LNG at prices four times higher than those paid by companies in the country. The French minister also called for establishing a more balanced relationship between the US and Europe.

Habeck: even some friendly countries are charging astronomical prices for gas

Habeck accused LNG exporters, including the US, of charging too much for gas at the time when Europe's biggest economy is struggling to balance its energy mix without Russian supplies and when German companies are closing down manufacturing facilities due to high gas costs, according to reports.

Habeck told Neue Osnabruecker Zeitung that some nations, even friendly ones, are in some cases charging "astronomical prices," adding that this situation has created problems that need to be talked about.

Another top official, the EU's chief diplomat Josep Borrell, called on Washington to respond to European concerns. "Americans -- our friends -- take decisions which have an economic impact on us," he said in an interview with POLITICO.

The U.S. rejected Europe's complaints. "The rise in gas prices in Europe is caused by Putin's invasion of Ukraine and Putin's energy war against Europe, period," a spokesperson for Biden's National Security Council said. Exports of liquefied natural gas from the U.S. to Europe "increased dramatically and enabled Europe to diversify away from Russia," the NSC spokesperson said.

Is DailyKos a rightwing website? | by Jerome a Paris on Oct 28th, 2006 |

Whenever I write about possible policy options that would be (partial) solutions to our looming crisis, there is always a noisy proportion of kossacks that complains that my proposal would unfairly hurt them, and that I don't understand about the USA, how big it is, or how necessary a car is for their job, or their shopping, or how wind would spoil their view, etc, ad nauseam.

Whenever I write about unions, government regulations, workers's rights, I get similarly hammered for not understanding economics (or blasted away with arguments about French unemployment, or various looming European crises like population, pensions, ...). I am permanently amazed by the lack of attention on the websites for issues like poverty, inequality, workers' rights, and by the hostile comments on my diaries on such topics (if they even manage to get noticed) which sound just like anything you'd hear from rightwing commenters in Europe.

Biden's trade team: RIP globalization | Politico - May 8, 2022 |

Russia's invasion of Ukraine accelerates the administration's efforts to find a path between global free trade and Trump-like protectionism.

President Joe Biden came into office hoping to chart a third way on trade -- away from the economic nationalism of Donald Trump and the free-wheeling globalization that preceded him.

But by the start of 2022, that agenda was on life support.

Biden's pledge to rebuild U.S. manufacturing seemed dead when Congress scuttled his Build Back Better proposal and its lucrative tax breaks for domestic factories late last year. His promises for a smarter, tougher China policy were dragged down by internal White House arguments over tariffs [Oct. 29] and investment restrictions. And allies around the world were reluctant to join Biden's calls to gang up on Beijing, keen to protect their commercial interests in the world's second largest economy.

Then, Russia invaded Ukraine, and China refused to condemn Moscow -- seemingly confirming Biden's thesis that the 21st century would be defined by a struggle between democracy and authoritarianism.

Now, Congress is rushing to pass tax credits for American-made computer chips, considering new investment rules for companies in China and, potentially, making a push for broader manufacturing incentives soon. Biden's proposed Asian economic pact has new momentum, with key ally South Korea signing on, and European allies are taking a harder line on Beijing. The White House economic team, meanwhile, is united in its plans to sanction the Chinese economy if and when it helps Russia in Ukraine.

The flurry of activity reinforces a shift in the conventional wisdom in Washington -- one emerging before Russia's invasion [credit to the Trump China trade and tariffs team and MAGA policy], but accelerated by Vladimir Putin's aggression.

Biden's State of the Union captured the mood. Outside of his declarations of support for Ukraine, the biggest applause line came when the president pledged to rebuild domestic manufacturing to decrease American reliance on China, Russia and other adversarial regimes.

U.S. to make China pay greater price for backing Russian invasion of Ukraine - senator | May 2022 |

"We are going to start making China pay a greater price for what they are doing all over the world. The support for (Russian President Vladimir) Putin must come with a price," U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham stressed in his comment on a visit to Taiwan.

When asked if Washington should send troops to help defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese attack, Graham said "every option is on the table."

"We have a strong military not to take other people's properties but to protect our freedom and the freedom of the world," he told reporters.

US arms sales and diplomatic visits to Taiwan have ticked up under both former president Donald Trump and his successor Joe Biden.

What is behind soaring energy prices and what happens next? | IEA - Oct. 12, 2021 |

The historic plunge in global energy consumption in the early months of the Covid-19 crisis last year drove the prices of many fuels to their lowest levels in decades. But since then, they have rebounded strongly, mainly as a result of an exceptionally rapid global economic recovery (this year is on track for the fastest post-recession growth in 80 years), a cold and long winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and a weaker-than-expected increase in supply.

Natural gas prices have seen the biggest increase, with European and Asian benchmark prices hitting an all-time record last week - around ten times their level a year ago. US month-ahead natural gas prices have more than tripled since October 2020 to reach their highest level since 2008. International coal prices are around five times their level a year ago, and coal power plants in China and India, the world's two largest coal consumers, have very low stocks ahead of the winter season.

Rising energy prices had a multi-facetted origin.

A Chinese guard stamped the passports and directed them to the runway.

When Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada in 2018, she was chief financial officer of China's Huawei Technologies Co., a telecommunications giant founded by her father that was poised to win the race to build 5G networks in most of the world's largest economies. Canadian authorities took Ms. Meng into custody in Vancouver, British Columbia, on behalf of the U.S., which had filed bank-fraud charges against her.

The detention of the 50-year-old celebrity businesswoman, and U.S. efforts to extradite her for trial in New York, transformed her into a national martyr in China and a symbol of America's growing hostility to its nearest rival.

Days later, the two Canadians were seized in retaliation for Ms. Meng's arrest. Michael Kovrig, 50, was on leave from Canada's Foreign Ministry to work for the International Crisis Group in Hong Kong. Michael Spavor, 46, ran a business that helped students, athletes and academics visit North Korea. During their incarceration and harsh treatment, the two men were sympathetically shorthanded in news reports and by Western leaders as "the two Michaels." Both men denied any wrongdoing.

The arrests marked a turning point in the growing power competition between the U.S. and China, helping shift it from mutual wariness to full-blown animosity. Unlike last century's Cold War between the U.S. and Soviet Union, the prisoner skirmish reflected a U.S.-China battle for control of the international flow of data and, ultimately, primacy in global commerce.

The last time a House speaker wasn't elected on the first ballot was 1923 | WaPo |

The other took place 100 years ago, in 1923. The November 1922 election had been worrying for Republicans. They lost 77 House seats, and their margin over Democratic members shrank from 171 to just 18. In his book "Horses in Midstream: U.S. Midterm Elections and Their Consequences,"

historian Andrew E. Busch noted that most of the ousted Republicans were allies of President Warren G. Harding. The progressive wing of the GOP took their ouster as win for its camp.

Back then, the new Congress wasn't sworn in until March 1923, and it didn't meet for its first session until December 1923, meaning 13 months had passed between the election and the vote for a new speaker. In that time, Harding died suddenly and his successor, Calvin Coolidge, assumed the presidency.

Thus the stage was set for an intraparty drama.

Two lawmakers nearly come to blows -- and other crazy moments from McCarthy's final speaker votes | Politico |

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) lunged at Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and had to be pulled away by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.). It happened after Gaetz blocked Kevin McCarthy from clinching the final vote to be elected speaker in the fourteenth round of voting -- and after the rabble rouser signaled he was ready to back down and let everyone finally go home.

Across the chamber, Democratic Reps. Dan Kildee (D-Mich.) and Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) could be heard shouting "Be civil!", according to a member who heard the exchange.

Several GOP members said they believed the animosity between Rogers and Gaetz reached a boiling point over talk that GOP leadership might offer Gaetz the chairmanship of a House Armed Services subcommittee. Rogers, who is set to lead that panel, had grown increasingly angry at the holdouts during the week, and he had initially threatened to try to strip anti-McCarthy members of committee assignments.

Mike Rogers had to be held back from going at Gaetz ... 🫣

When the final vote was in, the Republican caucus could be heard chanting: "USA USA USA USA ..." in my perception the echo in the historic chamber answered: "Shame Shame Shame Shame ...".

Recently described as "250 grams of magic and perfection" by President Emmanuel Macron, the French baguette is at risk from surging energy prices, with some bakers warning they can no longer afford to fire up their ovens.

Already struggling with sharp hikes in the price of butter, flour and sugar over the last year and a half, the prized industry is now alarmed by astronomical electricity bills looming in 2023.

"It was absolutely inconceivable to me that a power bill could make me close my shop and stop my life here," Julien Bernard-Regnard, a distraught baker in the village of Bourgaltroff in eastern France, told AFP by phone.

He is still coming to terms with closing his doors for the final time in early December having decided that continuing his business, built up over the last five years, was impossible given the cost of electricity.

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis said in a briefing shown live on television that there was "well-grounded suspicion about the involvement of officers of the Russian intelligence service GRU... in the explosion of an ammunitions depot in the Vrbetice area."

Several explosions shook the Vrbetice depot, 330 km (205 miles) southeast of Prague, in October 2014, killing two employees of a private company that was renting the site from a state military organisation.

Babiš Attacks Pavel's Past, Labels Him as "Communist Agent" | Prague Morning |

The winner of the first round of the presidential election, General Petr Pavel, is expecting "allegations" and "lies" from his opponent, former Prime Minister Andrej Babiš, before the second round.

Babišcongratulated Pavel on his victory, but immediately went on the attack against his opponent.

"I don't understand why he's running," he said, stressing Pavel's past as a soldier and a Communist Party member.

Babiš referred to him as a "communist intelligence agent", which Pavel described as "whining", adding that Babiš is "losing his head".

"I congratulate him for making it all the way to the NATO military committee as a communist intelligence officer - trained in Russia - who welcomed the invasion of Russian troops. Hats off to him," said Babiš, who was also a member of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia and is on trial for registering as an StB agent.
Among other assertions, Babiš said that currently, the only president in Europe who had been a "Communist agent" was Russia's Putin.

Pavel subsequently told the Czech Press Agency that if Babiš's campaign before the second round looks like his press conference, then "a lot of lies can be expected".

Another of Babis' challengers, Danuse Nerudova, who was rector of Mendel University in Brno, finished third with 13.9 per cent, while conservative former diplomat Pavel Fischer was fourth with 6.8 per cent.

Both Nerudova and Fischer pledged support for Pavel in the runoff in two weeks.

Czechs are picking a successor to Milos Zeman whose second and final term expires in March.

    Medvedev is absolutely right in referring to Kishida's subservient attitude towards the US as pathetic and without dignity, Kishida is offering Japan as a shameless and subservient platform for US geopolitical colonialism, seriously compromising the situation in the Far East..

    I will always say it, being an enemy of the US is risky but being a US friend is lethal..
