Venezuela’s hidden affair with Fossil Fuel.

America takes a leadership role to reduce fossil fuel consumption; President Biden ‘Green New Deal’ Administration refuses to dialogue with American Energy Executives In the Oil industry; notwithstanding Biden’s preference to buy the well-needed Oil from Venezuela; and Venezuela is a Petrostate highly dependent on fossil fuel.

Venezuela is a Petrostate where the government is highly dependent on fossil fuel income, power is concentrated, and corruption is widespread.

  • Venezuela is an example of a petrostate, where the government is highly dependent on fossil fuel income, power is concentrated, and corruption is widespread. 
  • Petrostates are vulnerable to what economists call Dutch disease, in which a government develops an unhealthy dependence on natural resource exports to the detriment of other sectors.
  • Venezuela continues to grapple with economic and political hardship under President Nicolás Maduro, but U.S. efforts to ease some sanctions have sparked hope for a revival of the oil industry.

Venezuela has a Secret Weapon: A “Dark Fleet” Of Oil Tankers:

  • The rise of the “dark fleet,” vessels that hide their locations to transport illegal oil cargoes, has enabled Venezuela to continue exporting oil in defiance of U.S. sanctions, contributing to its economic recovery.
  • PDVSA, Venezuela’s national oil company, has leased numerous tankers, many in poor condition, to facilitate the clandestine shipment of oil, with Iran providing critical aid to rebuild Venezuela’s oil infrastructure.
  • The expansion of the “dark fleet” enables PDVSA to export increasing amounts of oil undetected, which is crucial for the growth of Venezuela’s economy; as a result, the IMF predicts a 5% expansion in Venezuela’s GDP for 2023.

Canada wildfire hazes U.S. Air Quality.

U.S. Air Quality Hues

“The smoke drifting its way over the Interstate 95 corridor started sneaking into eastern New York and western New England early Monday evening,”


The smoke drifting it’s way in eastern NY.


“Scientists from Stanford University and the University of California, San Diego, found that toxic plumes of smoke, which can blanket western states for weeks when wildfires are raging, are reversing decades of gains in cutting air pollution. While heat-related deaths have previously been predicted as the worst consequence of the climate crisis, researchers say that air pollution caused by smoke could be just as deadly.”


Fires Scorch Western Canada.

“At the time of publication, New York was sitting at third place on the IQAir’s Air quality and pollution city ranking with a US Air Quality Index of 158, or “unhealthy” according to IQAir.”

“Toronto, the highest Canadian city on the list, currently has the dubious honor of ranking second place as worst in the world at the time of publication, with a US AQI of 175 or “unhealthy.”

“More than 100 wildland fires raged across Western Canada in early May 2023, forcing tens of thousands of people in Alberta and British Columbia to evacuate. The fires destroyed homes and produced chimneys of smoke that reached into the upper troposphere.”

The “IAEA” Situation in Ukraine.


IAEA: “Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) has been without external back-up power for three months now, leaving it extremely vulnerable in case the sole functioning main power line goes down again and underlining the importance of adhering to five principles established by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for the protection of the facility during the military conflict, Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi said today.”

“One of the five concrete principles that the Director General presented to the United Nations Security Council on 30 May – aimed at preventing a nuclear accident – states that off-site power to the ZNPP “should not be put at risk” and that “all efforts should be made to ensure that off-site power remains available and secure at all times.”

“The other principles outlined in Tuesday’s meeting at the Security Council included commitments not to attack from or against the plant, not using it as storage or a base for heavy weapons, and to protect structures, systems and components essential to its safe and secure operation from attacks or acts of sabotage.”

“While the principles won broad support at the United Nations Security Council, which is very encouraging and an important step forward for ensuring nuclear safety and security at the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant, the general situation at the site remains highly precarious and potentially dangerous,” Director General Grossi said.”

“The site’s fragile power situation continues to be a source of deep concern and – as the newly-established IAEA principles indicate – there is a need for intensified efforts to ensure a more stable and predictable external electricity supply,” he said.”


NYC Leadership in Asylum Seeker National Crisis

NYC Mayor Eric Adams partnered with the Faith Community to assist in the Migrant’s Asylum Seeker national crisis that’s spiraling out of control.

Election 2024.

The illegal border crossings that contribute to the crisis are ignored for the sake of not casting a dim light on President Biden’s Presidential re-election. Therefore; United States Governors and Mayors are seeking viable solutions to grapple with President Biden’s Federal crisis.

The Media ‘systemic racism’ Slogan: ‘Governors and Mayors! Don’t look at the Border Crisis, White Supremacy is at your back door. Why are you worried that your City can’t take the federal crisis anymore when campaigns of systemic racism are to deplore.’

While Governors, and Mayors are pursuing viable solutions to stabilize the crisis; City residents express that they are feeling the migrant crisis burden. The Media ignores reporting on migrants’ asylum seeker crisis stemmed from the illegal border crossing that’s spiraling out of control.

The Press holding the Government accountable has transition into media partisan activists. Meanwhile; Democracy fades into the darkness of keeping the public unaware for civic engagement to effect policies and elect leadership to solve the problems that impact communities. Knowledge is powerful. ‘Take the chains off their minds and use the media to lock-up the mind.’ It was Biden who said, “Rebublicans gonna put y’all back in chains,” and “If you ain’t Democrat you ain’t Black.”

Russia’s Hypersonic Attacks


Havana Syndrome is believed to have emerged in late 2016, when U.S. diplomats and spies serving in Cuba began reporting bizarre sounds and sensations followed by unexplained illnesses and symptoms, including hearing and vision loss, memory and balance problems, headaches and nausea. Feb 2, 2022


“The strong suspicion that Russia was behind the alleged attacks is backed by signals intelligence, meaning intercepted communications, say U.S. officials.”

Havana, Cuba.

The mystery began late in 2016. Personnel attached to the U.S. embassy in Havana developed symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and insomnia after hearing strange loud sounds or feeling a sensation of pressure. Since then, dozens of diplomats have been withdrawn from Cuba, and international tensions have risen. This month, the mystery spread, with reports from the U.S. Department of State that “a number” of diplomats at its consulate in Guangzhou, China, had been flown home with symptoms similar to those reported in Cuba—where two more diplomats have reportedly fallen ill. Yet 18 months in, an explanation is nowhere in sight, although hypotheses have proliferated.”

U.S. officials suspect Russia in mystery ‘attacks’ on diplomats in Cuba, have now spread to China.

The U.S. is reopening visa and consular services at embassy in Cuba

The Associated Press: HAVANA — The United States Embassy in Cuba is reopening visa and consular services Wednesday, the first time it has done so since a spate of unexplained health incidents among diplomatic staff in 2017 slashed the American presence in Havana.


The Embassy confirmed this week it will begin processing immigrant visas, with a priority placed on permits to reunite Cubans with family in the U.S., and others like the diversity visa lottery.

The resumption comes amid the greatest migratory flight from Cuba in decades, which has placed pressure on the Biden administration to open more legal pathways to Cubans and start a dialogue with the Cuban government, despite a historically tense relationship.

The United States restored diplomatic relations with Cuba on July 20, 2015, but has maintained the commercial, economic, and financial embargo against the communist island. Nov 26, 2016

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — A rare drone attack jolted Moscow early Tuesday, causing only light damage but forcing evacuations as residential buildings were struck in the Russian capital for the first time in the war against Ukraine. The Kremlin, meanwhile, pursued its relentless bombardment of Kyiv with a third assault on the city in 24 hours.

The Russian Defense Ministry said five drones were shot down in Moscow and the systems of three others were jammed, causing them to veer off course. President Vladimir Putin called it a “terrorist” act by Kyiv.

“The Horizon 2020 green deal project, led by the Dutch Marine Energy Centre, EU-SCORES will demonstrate the combination of offshore wind with wave- and offshore solar PV energy.”

The deployment is planned to last for approximately two years. It will continuously deliver electricity to the local Belgium grid.

“The floaters will be designed and built in the Netherlands. Subsequently, the floaters will be transported to the Port van Oostende in Belgium, where local contractors will be hired to deploy the system in early 2023.”

“This will pave the way for bankable multi-source offshore parks across Europe by 2025. These multi-source parks will use offshore space more efficiently and balance the electricity grid to achieve a resilient and cost-effective 100% renewable energy system.”

Tuskegee Airmen Memorial

Dr. Christopher Koontz, Historian, AFHSO.

“Those air crew and ground crew personnel associated with black flying units of the Army Air Forces (AAF) during World War II are known as the Tuskegee Airmen. On 16 January 1941, Secretary of the Army Henry L. Stimson authorized the formation of a black pursuit squadron. The 99th Pursuit (later Fighter) Squadron was activated in March 1941 and began training in separate facilities at Tuskegee, Alabama, on 15 November. The 99th Squadron, equipped with Curtiss P-40s and later Bell P-39s, was sent to French Morocco in April 1943, and it continued combat service from bases in Tunisia, Sicily, and Italy. In February 1944, the 99th Squadron was joined by three other fighter squadrons, the 100th, the 301st, and the 302nd, and all four squadrons constituted the 332nd Fighter Group, commanded by Colonel (later Lieutenant General) Benjamin O. Davis, Jr.”

“The group converted to Republic P-47s in April-May 1944 and to North American P-51s in June. Until the end of the war in Europe, it escorted Fifteenth Air Force bombers and made attacks on ground targets from its bases in Italy. The group earned a Distinguished Unit Citation for an escort mission to Berlin on 24 March 1945.”

“In mid-1943, the AAF decided to organize a black bomber unit, the 477th Bombardment Group (Medium). Activated on 1 June 1943, its pilots were to be trained at Tuskegee, but that airfield, already overburdened with training requirements, was unable to handle the new trainees. Rather than sending black student pilots to white-only schools or creating a new segregated base for them, the AAF delayed crews for the 477th Group until the backlog at Tuskegee could be cleared out. Since Tuskegee was not able to provide North American B-25 medium bomber pilot transition or training for bombardiers and navigators, eventually the AAF made an exception to its segregation policy and sent black officers to what had been all-white training establishments for their advanced instruction.”

“Faced with discrimination and often treated with less respect than white officers, their training suffered. As a result of these mounting delays and difficulties, the group was not operational until after the war. Tuskegee was, however, the single school for instruction of black pilots until it closed in 1946. Its graduates, along with the other air and ground personnel trained there for the 477th Bombardment and 332nd Fighter Groups, are the Tuskegee Airmen.”

VP Harris, 1st woman to give commencement speech at West Point, welcomes cadets to ‘unsettled world’

NEW YORK (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris, the first woman to deliver a commencement speech at West Point, lauded graduating cadets Saturday for their noble sacrifice in serving their country, but noted they were entering an “unsettled world” because of Russian aggression and the rising threats from China.

“The world has drastically changed,” Harris told the roughly 950 graduating cadets. She referred to the global pandemic that took millions of lives and the fraught shifts in global politics in Europe and in Asia.

“It is clear you graduate into an increasingly unsettled world where long-standing principles are at risk,” she said.

“As the U.S. ended two decades of war in Afghanistan, the longest in the country’s history, the vice president again condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the first major ground war in Europe since World War II.”

Harris also warned cadets to be wary of China, as it rapidly modernizes its military and muscles for control of parts of the high seas, ostensibly referring to the brewing disputes over the South China Sea.

“The photos and videos from Planet Labs PBC show Iran has been digging tunnels in the mountain near the Natanz nuclear site, which has come under repeated sabotage attacks amid Tehran’s standoff with the West over its atomic program.”

“One nuclear power reactor is operating in Iran, after many years’ construction. Construction commenced on a second large Russian-designed unit at the Bushehr site in November 2019, and a third unit is planned. The country also has a major programme developing uranium enrichment, which was concealed for many years.”

Iran began limiting its enrichment-related activities and ceasing its work on heavy water-related projects under the internationally-agreed Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. However, following the USA’s withdrawal from the agreement in 2018, the country began enriching uranium again.



Disease X Pandemic Warnings.

EcoHealth Alliance scientists are sampling humans and wildlife around the globe to track and discover new viruses

And this is where our research begins.

EcoHealth Alliance is committed to the Global Virome Project, a visionary undertaking which seeks to find and study the vast majority of the world’s 1.67 million unknown viruses. The hope is that we can learn everything to know about Disease X before it strikes. According to a paper published in Science by many of the Global Virome Project’s architects–including EcoHealth Alliance President Dr. Peter Daszak–in just 10 years we could discover 71 percent of those undiscovered viruses. The estimated cost for this is just $1.2 billion dollars. When compared to the $30-$50 billion price tag of the 2002-2003 SARS pandemic (itself an undiscovered virus at the time of its outbreak), it seems almost like a no brainer.

It’s our mission to put a name to Disease X, to help the world prepare, and to prevent it from emerging in humans. Today it’s probably in a forest somewhere miles from the nearest city, but that can change quickly. It’s estimated that a respiratory virus similar to the flu could reach all major global capitals within 60 days. It’s our expertise and multidisciplinary approach that stands between you and the next pandemic.

As the number of asylum seekers arriving in New York City since last April tops 50,000 — with more than 30,000 currently in the city’s care — Mayor Adams announced he will create the Office of Asylum Seeker Operations (OASO) to focus solely on coordinating the city’s continued response with a focus on resettlement and legal services, as well as a new 24/7 arrival center for asylum seekers. The blueprint also outlines new strategies the city will pilot to train asylum seekers for employment, including a program with houses of worship to provide asylum seekers with a place to stay and connection to services, in addition to a partnership with SUNY Sullivan to provide job training and housing for asylum seekers as they await work authorization.”

The situation is dire, with tens of thousands of people trapped indoors and running out of essential supplies such as food, water, and medicine. Health services are struggling, with several hospitals closing due to a shortage of medical supplies. As a result, almost one million people have fled their homes, seeking refuge in other states in Sudan and neighboring countries.”

Tristan Leavitt talks about retaliation against FBI Whistleblowers.

Tristan Leavitt, President of Empower Oversight, discusses the FBI whistleblower and his letter to the Department of Justice and Congress alleging retaliation after raising concerns about Director Christopher Wray’s testimony during the January 6 Capitol riot investigation.


FBI: Federal Bureau Investigation.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) enforces federal law and investigates a variety of criminal activities including terrorism, cybercrime, white-collar crimes, public corruption, civil rights violations, and other major crimes. In an emergency dial 911!



FBI Organization has enormous power and a minimum of oversight. GOP committee members accuse the FBI Organization of weaponization unleashed on the American public.

A complaint against this powerful entity is to bring intimidation as one can never imagine. Only those stung by the FBI’s aggression can attest to the Organization’s retaliation.


“FBI employees who spoke out against the “politicized rot” within the bureau were suspended or had their security clearances revoked, the House Judiciary Committee and Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government said.”

“The committees released an interim staff report Thursday morning revealing new whistleblower testimony from several current and former FBI employees that exposes “abuses and misconduct in the FBI.”

FL Rep Greg Steube refers to the FBI’s retaliation as egregious abuse.

FL Rep. Kat Cammack said a good cop despises a bad cop.


NYC, Migrants Asylum Seekers

“Migrant families have been moved out of P.S. 188 in Coney Island, according to Councilmember Justin Brannan. Parents and officials also report that the gym from P.S. 172 in Sunset Park is being returned to students.”


New York City Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services Anne Williams-Isom held a briefing on New York City’s continued response to the asylum seeker humanitarian crisis as the city continues to receive hundreds of new arrivals every day.

Health and Human Services, Deputy Mayor Anne Williams-Isom

Deputy Mayor Anne Williams-Isom said migrants sheltered in the school gym was only a temporary stay and the Administration had plans in process to relocate the migrants.

Although there are news reports that the citizen’s protests are the reason Migrants are moved out of the school gym, Williams-Isom said the protests had nothing to do with the Administration’s decision to remove the Migrants. The Administration had no intention of using the school gym for long-term shelter.

67,000, Asylum Seekers

“Officials have scouted 500 new locations citywide that could potentially house migrants, from vacant office space, shuttered schools, empty churches, and even space on Rikers Island.”

“However, Mayor Eric Adams said hotels in the city are at capacity or unwilling to help. City officials say the state and federal governments haven’t stepped in to help, nor have neighboring counties.”

“In the last year, New York City has provided shelter and care for more than 67,000 asylum seekers and migrants. Currently, the city is looking after more than 41,500 migrants.

“Last week alone, 4,200 migrants came in on buses and planes, with 900 arriving in a single day.”


NYC Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services  Anne Williams-Isom.


Mayors’ Migrants State of Emergency.


“At least six more Big Apple schools are set to start temporarily housing migrants in their gyms, prompting all hell to break loose Monday among parents frantic over safety and potential learning disruptions.”


NY Citizens’ migration frustration.

“Adams maintained that the city has not yet become so inundated with migrants that they need to be housed in the gyms, saying those who were photographed in a Brooklyn gymnasium over the weekend were there for only “a few hours.”



Chicago South Side Citizens Speak

Now, South Side residents are pushing back against the city’s plan to house several hundred migrants at the vacant South Shore High School located at 76th Street and Constance Avenue.

“Why would any leader put our Black communities already riddled with crime, at further risk by placing unvetted, non-taxpayers steps away from our seniors, our children,” said J. Darnell Jones, who lives in South Shore.”

“If the city’s plan goes through, the school building would become a site where migrants could temporarily sleep, eat, and shower.”

“They will be fully taken care of, yet here in our community, we aren’t taken care of,” said Linda Cohran, who lives in South Shore.”


TX State of Emergency.


EL PASO, Texas — The mayor of a Texas border city declared a state of emergency Saturday over concerns about the community’s ability to handle an anticipated influx of migrants across the Southern border.

El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser issued the state of emergency declaration to allow the city on the U.S. border with Mexico to tap into additional resources that are expected to become necessary after Title 42 expulsions end on Dec. 21, the El Paso

TX Border Illegal Crossings.

“More than 1.5 million illegal migrants have slipped into the US since Joe Biden took office — more than three times the number recorded during the last three years of Trump’s presidency, Department of Homeland Security data shows.”

“A staggering 530,000 so called ‘gotaways’ — illegal immigrants known to have entered the country but not been caught — have been recorded since last October, according to US Border Patrol.”

“Thousands of migrants are still surging over the southern border, but once allowed into the US, most have to move on — causing confusion and overcrowding at regional airports.”



“The 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education.”

“On May 17, 1954, lawyer Thurgood Marshall scored a landmark victory as the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka that racial segregation in public schools was unconstitutional.”

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Thurgood Marshall.

Thurgood Marshall (July 2, 1908 – January 24, 1993) was an American civil rights lawyer and jurist who served as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1967 until 1991. He was the Supreme Court’s first African-American justice. Prior to his judicial service, he was an attorney who fought for civil rights, leading the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. Marshall was a prominent figure in the movement to end racial segregation in American public schools. He won 29 of the 32 civil rights cases he argued before the Supreme Court, culminating in the Court’s landmark 1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education, which rejected the separate but equal doctrine and held segregation in public education to be unconstitutional. President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed Marshall to the Supreme Court in 1967. A staunch liberal, he frequently dissented as the Court became increasingly conservative.

Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, 347 U.S. 483, was a landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled that U.S. state laws establishing racial segregation in public schools are unconstitutional, even if the segregated schools are otherwise equal in quality. Wikipedia

U.S. Energy Agenda and Nuclear Revitalization.

The White House Energy Agenda

Today, at a White House convening with energy communities, the Biden-Harris Administration will announce historic new actions to create jobs, lower costs, and invest in the energy communities that powered this nation for generations.

President Biden came to the White House to end years of big words but little action to help energy-producing parts of the country, who for decades saw jobs exported out and products imported in, all while other countries surpassed the United States in critical sectors like infrastructure, clean energy, and semiconductors. President Biden’s Investing in America Agenda is already turning the tide, bringing manufacturing jobs back home and ensuring we rebuild our economy from the bottom-up and the middle-out, not top-down, so that no community is left behind.

The actions announced today will drive new investments in energy communities to support their economic revitalization, strengthen American supply chains, and help ensure coal, oil, and gas workers benefit from the new clean energy economy.

These investments build on the more than $14 billion from across federal agencies that the Interagency Working Group on Coal and Power Plant Communities and Economic Revitalization has driven to the hardest-hit energy communities across the country. They also build on the more than $7.4 billion that companies have invested in energy communities to spur clean energy manufacturing, steel production, and critical minerals processing.https://www.whitehouse.gov/invest/

U.S. Nuclear Revitalization.

Senator John Kennedy says the United States has not built a nuclear warhead since the Cold War. U.S., instead; has focused on extension programs to keep old weapons operational by refurbishing them and those that are not refurbished are destroyed

Sen. Kennedy: “No sane person wants a nuclear war.”

EuroNews: “Experts warn that Russia could step up chemical attacks in Ukraine. The Kremlin says it does not have any intention to use chemical weapons.”

“On Sunday, Russia was accused of using phosphorus on the besieged city of Bakhmut with Ukraine releasing footage purporting to show it raining down on its positions.”

Tales of Title 42.


SLATE: “The Title 42 border restrictions are arguably the most significant COVID-19 measure still in effect, and also one of the most durable holdovers of Trump’s immigration agenda. When the COVID-19 public health emergency expires on May 11, the Title 42 immigration restrictions will finally end, leaving it to the Biden Administration to craft a new framework for managing immigration at the border.”

Mayors Fireside chat.”

“Fix the problem, now.” Our Mayors rise to the occasion.

Regardless of a city’s prolonged issues; five, ten, or many years of grappling with certain issues, when an African American is elected as the Mayor, demands are emphasized that the problems are immediately fixed, and this expeditious demand is discussed among “Our Mayors” in the “Big Four, Fireside chat.

City of Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner successfully addressed the city’s Pension problem. “You have to fix this problem right now,” is what the new Mayor was told.

Mayor Sylvester Turner

Under Mayor Turner’s leadership, the city of Houston no longer has a pension problem.

As Mayor Eric Adams continue to “get stuff done” and meet the challenges of his city. He’s frequently criticized by the right-wing media and Republican Representatives.

Mayor Eric Adams

The Republican, right-wing media apparatus is frustrated with Adams for not reducing the crime crisis to a net-zero crime reduction. An America crime crisis that’s spilled over in New York City.

Although, Mayor Adams is steadily getting guns and gangs off the streets. Violent offenders are arrested and law enforcement is in partnership with community policing organizers to uphold police brutality accountable. Additionally, Mayor Adams has taken a quantum leap in AI technologies to enhance public safety measurements. AI robots and the Digi Dog were extremely effective in locating victims mashed in the rubbles of the recent building collapse in Manhattan. Because of the increase in police presence on the subways, MTA commuters’ ridership has dramatically increased due to commuters feeling a presence of safety. Adams continues to rise to the occasion and “Get stuff done.” Mayor Eric Adams is exceeding the demands that were not forcibly placed upon his predecessor, Bill De Blasio.

‘Run faster. Jump higher.’ Be quick to fix the city’s long-standing problems and don’t take long to fix the problem is just another day in the office for African American Mayors.

The fireside chat among the four Mayors of American four largest cities are getting the job done.

Public Safety.

Public safety is the most pressing issue of our time.

More rigid gun laws are necessary. Currently; gun manufacturers are held accountable but discussions on strict penalty for repeated offenders that are wreaking havoc on society doesn’t appear to be included in the gun control political debate. Assailants are left out of the gun laws debate altogether. Stop the vicious cycle of releasing repeated violent offenders.

Public Safety is a momentum issue in Election 2024.


Sabotage mystery behind Nordstream 2 Gas leaks

June 6 Update: Nordstream 2 Sabotage

NY Post: “The Biden administration knew of a detailed Ukrainian plan to sabotage Russia’s Nord Stream pipeline three months before it was bombed, according to documents leaked online, allegedly by Air National Guardsman Jack Teixeira.ailed Ukrainian plan to sabotage Russia’s Nord Stream pipeline three months before it was bombed, according to documents leaked online, allegedly by Air National Guardsman Jack Teixeira.


Carnegie Endowment compares the Nordstream 1 and Nordstream 2 gas leak into the Baltic Sea to an Agatha Christie mystery novel.

U.S, and Ukraine has accused Russia for sabotaged on the pipelines gas leak. If Vladimir Putin would sabotage Nordstreams’ pipelines that’s an assault on the Ruble for Russia’s economy amidst NATO and U.S. sanctions on the Russian economy. Why would Putin self-inflict his economy? If he would, then a code red nuclear alert system should be in active status mode, now. Because Putin’s sabotage of the pipeline gas leaks would be compared to a suicide bomber’s “self-sabotage” attack.

Nordstream 1 and Nordstream 2 pipelines are Gas resources to Energy markets and Putin has solely controlled, weaponized and used Russia Energy influence as a bargaining chip to EU NATO members.

“The six months preceding the Normandy Invasion were a period of civil war in France between the members of the Resistance and the German Gestapo (secret police) aided by Vichy militias. When the provisional government of Charles de Gaulle moved to France after the Allied invasion of Normandy, it took over from a fascist regime in utter collapse. In September 1944, after the liberation of Paris, the new government declared Pétain’s French State abolished, together with all its laws.”
