Which is a more serious act of war and a greater environmental disaster?

Our blowing up the Nord Stream pipeline.

Or Russia taking down a drone?



  1. Biden blowing up the Nordstream Pipeline overseas Or Biden polluting all of Ohio with his train bioweapon?

  2. The Russians blame the Brits and say they used Ukrainians similar to what NYT recently reported:
    LONDON, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Russia's defence ministry said on Saturday that British navy personnel blew up the Nord Stream gas pipelines last month, a claim that London said was false and designed to distract from Russian military failures in Ukraine.

    The Russian ministry said that "British specialists" from the same unit directed Ukrainian drone attacks on ships of Russian Black Sea fleet in Crimea earlier on Saturday that it said were largely repelled by Russian forces, with minor damage to a Russian minesweeper.

    "According to available information, representatives of this unit of the British Navy took part in the planning, provision and implementation of a terrorist attack in the Baltic Sea on September 26 this year - blowing up the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines," the ministry said.

    Russia said meanwhile that Ukrainian forces attacked ships from the Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol, the biggest city in Russian-annexed Crimea, in the early hours of Saturday.

    "Nine unmanned aerial vehicles and seven autonomous marine drones were involved in the attack," the defence ministry said.

    "The preparation of this terrorist act and the training of servicemen of the Ukrainian 73rd Special Center for Naval Operations were carried out under the guidance of British specialists located in the town of Ochakiv."

    All the air drones were destroyed though minor damage was done to the minesweeper Ivan Golubets, the ministry said. Sevastopol is the headquarters of Russia's Black Sea Fleet.

  3. The policy against Nordstream pipeline began w/Trump who also called for U.S. bases in Poland which NATO promised it would never do:

    "Trump demanded that Berlin end Nord Stream 2 after it called for an EU military buildup and a defense policy independent from NATO. While then-German Chancellor Angela Merkel called for Germany to “fight for our own future ourselves,” French President Emmanuel Macron called for the EU to prepare to confront Russia, China or America.

    "EU officials rejected Trump’s calls to end Nord Stream 2. Such demands, said German lawmaker Rolf Mützenich, “affect German and European companies and represent interference in our internal affairs. The EU and Germany are apparently not allied partners for Trump, but tributary vassals...”

    "Trump pushes plan to reduce forces in Germany despite bipartisan opposition"

    "Currently, approximately 10,000 U.S. personnel are on rotation in Poland...President Biden made a historic announcement at the June NATO Summit in Madrid that the U.S. Army V Corps Headquarters Forward Command Post, an Army garrison headquarters, and a field support battalion will be permanently stationed in Poland. These forces represent the first permanently stationed U.S. forces on NATO’s eastern flank and will improve our command-and-control capabilities, interoperability with U.S. and NATO forces, and management of prepositioned equipment."

    Also Ted Cruz was all over wanting sanctions to try to shut down NordStream 2

    He feels w/out NS2 Russia would not have invaded Ukraine.

    Russia had cut oil supply to Poland, but day after NS2 blew up oil started flowing into Poland from a Baltic Pipeline: "The pipeline, with an annual capacity of 10 billion cubic meters, was officially inaugurated on Tuesday, a day after leaks were detected in the subsea Nord Stream gas pipelines linking Russia to Europe. Russia cut gas supplies to Poland in April when it refused to pay in roubles."

    Many people now believe WWI was engineered to bring down the royal houses running Europe (Romanov, Hapsburg and Kaiser). WWII destroyed the European Colonial empires. WWIII to destroy the superpowers could now be the secret agenda. Both Russia and the U.S./Europe are being bled. However, US & British have been working together since 1st Gulf War. This Ukraine enterprise seems an effort of the Brits--not sure if you watch the BBC news--driven by balance of power considerations in Europe, but also perhaps due to British Petroleum interests. It seems to have the same Bush/Cruz oil industry backing in the U.S. that worked w/the Brits in the Gulf War ventures.

  4. British have troops in Ukraine: "British troops on ground in Ukraine in operations with “high level of political and military risk”"

    It could be that once Germany was reunited, WWIII was inevitable.

  6. Dear Richard Comerford, Trump is no longer the president. When he was the president, he was against the pipeline.

    Trump blasts Germany over gas pipeline deal with Russia

    Trump Imposes Sanctions To Stop Nord Stream 2 – But It’s Too late

    U.S. waives sanctions on Nord Stream 2 as Biden seeks to mend Europe ties

    A State Department report sent to Congress concluded that Nord Stream 2 AG and its CEO, Matthias Warnig, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, engaged in sanctionable activity. But Blinken immediately waived those sanctions, saying that it was in the U.S. national interest.

    U.S. officials hope the waiver will give time for discussions with Germany on potential negative effects of the pipeline and provide some leverage to deepen cooperation on broader issues, such as the pandemic, climate change, the economic recovery and dealing with China and Russia.

    The waiver also "provides space for diplomatic engagement with Germany to address the risks that a completed pipeline would pose to Ukraine and European energy security," the State Department official told reporters.

    Germany has been pressing for the United States to drop its opposition to the project, arguing that the overall relationship was too important to sacrifice over what Berlin has described as a commercial project.

    Russia and Pipelines also figured in Syria:

    By turning on the flow of gas, the US has created a new dimension for Moscow's gambit in Syria. How it handles the opportunity will likely have more implications than just meeting the energy needs of Lebanon.

  7. here's a big difference between opposing the pipeline and committing an act of war by sabotaging it. If Trump were president would we be in a proxy war with Russia? I doubt it.

    Exactly. If the election had not been stolen by Biden then the pipeline would not have been sabotaged; there would be no war in the Ukraine; and there would be no talk by blood thirsty NATO experts of using nuclear weapons.

    Orange Man Bad rightly warned NATO not to be dependent on Russian gas via a pipe line otherwise NATO's lights, heats and power could easily be shut off.

    Now NATO faces a dystopian future dominated by Islam.

  9. This letter was written by Senators Cruz, Cotton and Johnson August 5, 2020. Trump was still president and NS2 was going to be completed despite sanctions. If what Cruz states in this letter is true (grave threat to national security and also financial system (probably use of dollar as world currency); admin, congress and both parties agree), U.S. would have to put it out of commission regardless of who was president.

    "The U.S. government knows that the Nord Stream 2 pipeline is near completion and considers it a grave threat to European energy security and American national security. Investments in and support of the pipeline moreover introduce risks to the hygiene of the U.S. financial system and reputational risks to all companies involved in related transactions, including any American companies. The administration and Congress, and both parties, are united in their commitment to ensure that the pipeline remains uncompleted and those threats are never realized."

    You think Trump is a good guy, but his failure to release the truth about JFK's assassination or the pancaking of the twin towers in which more Americans died than at Pearl Harbor and building 7 'was pulled' late in the afternoon w/no plane in sight (Giuliani is his favorite lawyer who helped bilk as many Trump supporters as they could for money to fight the election results in court, not to mention sell presidential pardons, and then get a bunch of people into DC to get arrested by own FBI) as well as his participation in the big pharma bonanza covid19 U.S. funded killer virus created in a Chinese lab act of war on the rule of law and the citizens of this country indicate to me he would have no trouble at all blowing up a pipeline and lying about it. Trump first called Putin smart to invade Ukraine, then said he would have stopped it by giving chunks of Ukraine to Putin, and also that he would have U.S. planes painted w/Chinese insignia attack Russia to attempt to get Russian and China fighting.

    "Sidney Powell is a bit nuts," Fox host Laura Ingraham wrote to stars Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity on Nov. 15, 2020.

    "Sidney Powell is lying," Carlson told his producer in a note the next day.

    "Terrible stuff damaging everybody, I fear," Murdoch texted to Fox News chief executive Suzanne Scott on Nov. 19, after seeing Powell and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani relaying unfounded claims of election fraud on the air. Scott agreed.

    "[T]hat whole narrative that Sidney was pushing, I did not believe it for one second," Hannity said in a deposition conducted nearly two years later by Dominion's lawyers.

    I don't know who blew up the pipeline. I believe our rulers believed it was in U.S. interest to have it blown up and sure Biden would have approved the deed whoever did it. Sy Hersh "reporting" indicates to me someone wants that information out there true or not. He certainly has never reported on the 'big story' of 911 - which was almost certainly a false flag of our own government carried out by the Mossad in order to get U.S. fighting "a war on terror" in the middle east to the benefit of U.S. oil, defense & construction industry and Israeli security interests. Dept of Homeland Security direct result of a false terror attack.

    Costs of the 20-year war on terror: $8 trillion and 900,000 deaths

    But I still don't want to live under Putin.

    Orange Man Bad is anti-abortion and anti-war. He is not a professional politician. Orange Man Bad is preferable to pro-abortion and pro-war professional politicians like Biden, Pelosi, Hillary and all.

  11. "Moments after he stepped off his plane just outside Davenport, Trump repeatedly refused to say whether he would support a federal law restricting abortion in every state, a move that anti-abortion activists are demanding of the GOP's presidential contenders.

    “We’re looking at a lot of different things,” Trump said when asked twice by The Associated Press whether he supports a federal abortion ban. The former president quickly shifted the conversation to immigration, the economy and “radical-left lunatics.” (similar to Gov Huckabee whose father supports Aid to Jews (holocaust survivors) in Ukraine--being against radical/crazy/lunatics is a way to avoid giving a specific position; Jews are 88% pro-choice; De Santis, Haley and Pence are all to the right of Trump on abortion in 2024).

    It's hard to know how many abortions of his own children he has paid for ('that's an interesting question. What's the next question?'). Some say not aborting his son Barron is what led him to change his position on abortion. However, it could simply have been political calculation and now the calculus has changed.

    I voted for Trump in 2016 despite his LGBT position and his private life. I did not vote for him in 2020 due to his handling of Covid19, but would have done so if I resided in a state where my vote made a difference. I voted for him and would have voted for him as the lesser of two EVILS. Biden and Pelosi make me sick, but the pope and bishops wanting gov't money or an easy life have given these politicians a bye. The official position of the Roman Catholic Church is pro-choice. The term 'pro-life' has been carefully crafted to not conflict with that position though few Catholics realize it even as they belong to a church/parish that includes a majority 'pro-choice' with most Catholic politicians holding that position and working to protect 'abortion rights.' Sure Nancy and Joe and all the bishops feel they are very pro-life while at the same time allowing 'freedom of religion.' We see them as vast hypocrites but sure they see us turning a blind eye to Trump's womanizing and melania's nude posing and the log cabin republicans and all the corruption of the rich republican businessmen and neo-con war hawks as the same hypocrisy. The actual position of the Catholic Church should be against artificial birth "control" of which abortion is one most heinous facet--but how many catholic 'pro-lifers' are sterilized/use artificial birth control and pursuing the sweet life? We are all more like the evil plastic surgerized nancy pelosi (who had five children in the first six years of her marriage and then quit) and jill/melania one child sex tarts who all claim to be practicing catholics than we care to admit. And sure you are not so far from plastic surgerized, dyed hair, wearing sun glasses in your dotage and womanizing joe and don yourself.

  13. Dear Richard, I think if you were honest you would acknowledge that Christianity has very little to do w/your support of Trump and more to do w/your own greed/selfishness. If you ever frequent the Canon212 blog you may have heard the owner going off on how he is supposed to support people who don't work/immigrants. Democrats on the other hand who don't necessarily agree w/abortion/lgbt, support Biden to protect (need/greed) their government programs, social security, medicare/medicaid etc.

    Not sure you are providing Christian witness w/your comments when you ignore sins of calumny/rash judgment: this blog post compares Russia's "taking down" a drone w/ "our blowing up" a pipeline--when U.S. denies and there is no proof and also ignores more comparable acts like Russia's cutting off oil to Poland (a NATO ally) or invading Ukraine and Crimea (2014-2023). Then there is the comment accusing Biden of polluting all of Ohio with a train bioweapon and your own accusing Biden of stealing the election (did Biden institute covid lockdown that led to mail in election? Being the beneficiary doesn't mean doing it). The Bible states that we will account for every idle word.

    That the priest pedophile scandal was never reported in "The Catholic Standard" doesn't mean it didn't occur. When there are video and pictures of the events and the principal admits them, hard to justify your denial (perhaps you will be able to explain to Jesus, who said,"I am the truth"). My reason for posting is that I neglected to post the 'anti-catholic' citations on the rosary carrying of these "practicing Catholics" who no doubt just like us think they're "witnessing to Christ" w/their vicious lives.

    she married Donald Trump, a Presbyterian, in 2005 at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal church in Palm Beach, Florida, and has celebrated Easter services there as recently as this year. Her 11-year-old son, Barron, who was baptized at the same church, will attend St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland, in the fall.

    Rather, Biden's real words were: "The next Republican that tells me I'm not religious I'm going to shove my rosary beads down their throat."

    Pope Francis blessed his son Beau's rosary beads that he wears around his wrist.

    I never said that I supported Trump. I said: "Citations from anti-Catholic publications carry little weight. As do anonymous comments...A Christian cannot witness to Christ while hiding in the shadows".

    To which I add that anonymity encourages both cowardice and lying.
