American Legislators Introduce Energy Bill for Europe!

American Legislators Introduce
Energy Bill for Europe

(You Read That Right..!) ... TRANSLATION.......
USA  Senators Introduce Bill To Fight “RUSSIAN ENERGY DOMINANCE”
In Europe   :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Height of hubris, US Senators take it upon themselves to "diversify" and "secure" European energy supplies away from Russia

On October 10th, Chris Murphy and Ron Johnson, two US senators announced the introduction of the European Energy Security and Diversification Act.

According to the two senators, it is a bill provides new tools for the US to combat “malign Russian influence” in the energy sector in Europe. It also aims at creating economic opportunities for the US, internally and internationally.


“Russia uses its dominance of the energy market, along with bribery, corruption and propaganda to undermine Western institutions and install pliant governments that are unable or unwilling to counter Russia or its president, Vladimir Putin,” the press release said.

“The European Energy Security and Diversification Act will authorize $1 billion in US financing for European energy projects that, paired with increased diplomatic and technical support, will help diversify Europe’s energy supply and decrease Russia’s hold on the region.”

According to the senators Russia was doing everything in its power to increase its influence in its geographical sphere.

“We’ve rightly invested billions to shore up military defenses in Eastern Europe, but let’s not forget the equally dangerous implications of Russia’s energy stranglehold on Europe,” Murphy said. “Vladimir Putin gets away with a lot because so much of Europe relies on Russia for energy.”

According to him, with US help its allies can secure new sources of energy and contribute to strategically important projects. The new bill “can help break Putin’s grip on Europe and create jobs here in the US.”

The new piece of legislation allows the US Trade and Development Agency, as well as other agencies, to support US private sector investment in energy projects in Central and Eastern Europe starting from Fiscal Year 2019 until 2023.

The projects would primarily be focused on natural gas infrastructure, including storage facilities for liquefied natural gas imports and reverse flow capacity.

Also on October 10th Francis Fannon criticized the Nord Stream pipeline, claiming that it aims to divide “free nations” and that Eastern Mediterranean gas could “reinforce” the European energy security.

“There should be many suppliers, but one Europe and one trans-Atlantic alliance,” Fannon said. Russia “uses energy for coercive political aims,” he claimed.

The US has threatened to impose sanctions over the Nord Stream 2 project, however the German company Uniper which is one of the financing partners of the project remains fully committed to it. The German government is also fully committed to the project.

Trump and his administration have repeatedly condemned the project, saying that it will make Germany and the EU dependent on Russian energy.


In July, Donald Trump and EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker met to avoid a trade war between the EU and the US. After the meeting, Trump announced that the EU would buy more US liquefied natural gas.

Despite that, the Nord Stream 2 project is continuing at full speed and no threat of sanctions appears capable of stopping it.

The foundation of the west is collapsing including Europe. China appears to be ready to come down with us. Be careful what you wish for you might get it.

The petro dollar already gone. The largest oil consuming country China does not buy oil in dollars. Russia does not usually sell oil or gas in dollars.

World looking very toppy here. This collapse may start next year.

Looks that "finally" you got the drift of what actually it's going on around the world, especially in the financial sector.

For the past 80 years the USA empire has dominate the globe and used it's power to invade and pillaged the wealth from most nations around the world, but now the chicken come home to roost.

As you must know, by now, Empires are not only go up.... but eventually come down too! History is full or examples and now it's the USA turn.

Read again the Comment I posted in my previous post........ and it tells you all!

May I also suggest you read this article, from one of yours,...... to start making more sense. The "Yeltsin Years" have gone, when you were pillaging the USSR/RF with impunity...... the new leader, Putin, has been playing a clever game and has eliminated the internal influence of the "Atlantists", has put under control the Russian Jewish Oligarchs and is looking to leave a name in history as the best leader of Russia.

At the end the USA will have to decide either will share the world influence more equally or will destroy it by stating the hot...WWIII and it's the direction your ultimum Hegemon, the Zionist Neta-Yahoo is leading your government!

As you know it's the Anglo-Zionists banksters of the FED etc who are controlling your nation and not the voters.

As is typical of Wiz he is lying.

The actual title of bill S.3585 is. "A bill to prioritize the efforts of and enhance coordination among United States agencies to
encourage countries in Central and Eastern Europe to diversify their energy sources and supply routes, increase Europe's energy security, and help the United States reach its global energy security goals, and for other purposes."[/i]

In a number of days there will be a synopsis of the bill and I will post it for you. I might add I sort of doubt this bill make it to D. Trump's desk for a signature, but in any event it is non binding.

Russia and China 'encourages' many countries, I believe your are moaning a bit to much.

It is worth noting that C. Murphy is decidedly not in the Trump camp.

AvHdB, sometimes it is worth bothering to read beyond the headline.
The bill is all about using a multistranded effort on the part of government, NGOs and commercial interests to persuade European governments to not use, or at the least reduce, Russian energy sources. The replacement implicit in the wording of the document and practice to date is USAian energy, energy that can only be supplied at a much higher price.

This IS an energy bill for Europe, it is designed to influence and control the governments of Europe in the furterance of USAian political and commercial a interests.

With the accusations of the Saudi's murdering a journalist the possibility of oil could skyrocket.  Also the possibility of another war in the middle East is increasing every day.
Having alternative supplies would seem to be warranted. Russia has already made deals with China for gas and oil.
The United States can supply it's own needs if needed.
Europe on the other hand might be screwed without an  alternative source.

Hmm AvHdB, you really don't reed gud du yu? I do not recall writing that the legislation proposed was going to MANDATE that Europe MUST buy US oil. So why suggest that anyone, including the framers of the bill did so?

Stick to the facts in evidence or base a valid opinion upon them.

And you are right, the bill, at least as framed originally, is unlikely to pass. However, as I am sure that even you, just after the first stiffener of the day, would agree, legislative proposals very often indicate the direction of the wind, the direction of opinion of legislators. Oh and you forgot to highlight the important, possibly the most important point in the final paragraph of your copy/paste.

Nice attempt at a Moby style swerve these are your words.

This IS an energy bill for Europe, it is designed to influence and control the governments of Europe in the furterance of USAian political and commercial a interests.

You really do not get it. Curious how many moves does it take you to loose at chess, 20?

For what it is worth I rarely do a copy and paste and at least I acknowledge it. I will do this (C&P) when the text is only online for a limited time period.

When the text and summary are re-posted on the Senate site I will come back to this, in the mean time feel free to live in Andrewstupidville.

Anonymous Zionist clown and Troll......AvHdb ….WHO?

I hope you can read and comprehend what I have to advice you, now, that you appear to be awaken from your stupor & sleep, having exhausted yourself with self-love, a practice you follow daily to sleep, which of course in your case is nothing new.

Some things like “Self-Esteem” and “Self-Love” may be equally essential for a good normal personality but you seem to miss both. On the other hand, nothing is more important than a healthy sense of self-esteem and loving yourself but you interpreter the second quality to something different, which of course is lacking from your life and silly character.

The action by the two senators, could have been instigated by the Government, president or the interested Zionists Banksters.

For us who keep our eyes open, unlike you, it’s an admission of the USA that it uses energy and its Fiat $ currency for world dominance. That is why the US/Zionists are in the Middle East. The world needs alternative sources of fuel to counter US hegemony. That is why Iraq, Libya and Venezuela have been targeted and destroyed by US imperialism.

The USA are slaves of the racist supremacist global Jewish confederate and use their dominance of NATO and the US dollar, along with bribery, corruption and propaganda to undermine European institutions and install pliant governments, like the one in Greece, Albania, Kosovo, Ukraine, Monte Negro, Poland, Turkey etc…..

Germany and the rest of Europe will not risk buying US LNG at more expensive cost and for your info Putin is not stupid to start any war with the EU countries. Only North Stream 2 will bring additionally to Russia over $100 billion of income in addition to the $ 400 billion from North Stream 1 that is getting already.

Now go back to your hobby .... playing with .....and fall asleep.


Before you fall asleep…. if you can.....Read this article and try to stay awake: :ROFL:

There is a war going on in Syria and the American's are still there..... and don't forget Yemen........ that you supply Saudi Arabia to continue bombing them.... and all the Western Media mention nothing on TV or Papers and the same apply for the Genocide in Palestine by the Terrorist state of Isra(h)ell.

Don't worry about Europe...... it does have many sources for their Energy needs and it's only the dying Empire who is creating problems.

otherwise you are on the right track... well done. :reading:

I have noted before the shameful treatment by Israel of the Palestinians. It continues, but part of the problem is the Palestinians are them selves pawns of other foreign powers. As for Saudi Arabia it has a has remarkable track record of not getting any shit on its fingers but the disappearance (murder) of J. Khassogi might be an event too far.

Sadly there seems no attempt by the Trump administration to seek a resolution between the various factions.
