.@JoeBiden @SecGranholm If we in the United States want the Eurozone to keep up #RussianSanctions thru this winter in support of #Ukraine we need to be loading boats with coal so power producers have proper stockpiles... RIGHT NOW! We should be all hands on deck!!! @JavierBlas
Otherwise Europe will be at risk of grid shutdown/blackouts or some kind of #SriLankaCrisis will ensue. This is not a joke. If the grid shuts down in the middle of winter, people will die like they did here in Texas during the Uri freeze of Feb 2021.
Recommend discussing privately with energy ministers/secretaries in each country. Different fuel mix for each country between nat gas/coal/oil/etc. Rationing as is currently planned will NOT be enough. Consider Defense Production Act to support allies of #Ukraine

1/ Will #RussianSanctions be a boon for tankers? Surging spot rates and tanker equities suggest yes.

If Europe chooses to buy elsewhere and a meaningful portion of crude from the Black Sea and Baltic goes to Asia instead, it will add huge ton miles.
2/ This changes things. Whereas tankers were looking like they wouldn't see profitable rates until Q3/4 at the earliest and the likelihood of very high rates was low, now it is entirely possible that tanker companies make huge profits in 2022.
3/ I have been an outspoken tanker bear over the past 18 months with a bullish outlook in the longer term.

Considering recent events, I am no longer on the sidelines. Many tanker equities already look expensive but I'm buying the bargains.

1st tranche of sanctions by #Biden & NATO allies are real but harsher ones certainly available:
1. Germany will not move forward w #NordStream2
2. Freeze assets & prohibit business w 2 key banks: Vnesheconombank (VEB) & military bank Promsvyazbank
3. Sovereign debt prohibitions restricting access to U.S. capital markets and investors.
4. Sanctions on 5 Russian elites and their family members with the Kremlin (Putin's friends)
5. Warning: Over 80% of Russia’s FX transactions in U.S. $s & 50% of Russia’s international trade. "No Russian financial institution is safe from our measures, including the largest banks"
6. Real hammers still available:
-Ban use of SWIFT
-Export Controls

#UMM: Is now a good time to remind everyone that RON JOHNSON is the CHAIRMAN of the Senate Homeland Security Committee...?

You know, the committee that oversees DHS, the department in charge of SECURING OUR ELECTIONS...
#FLAG: In April, Sen. Ron Johnson was confronted about Russian election interference and DHS's primary role in election security and preventing it.

He claimed he cares about Russian election interference, but quickly downplayed it.

"Let's not blow this thing out of proportion."
#NOTE: As Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Johnson has not held a single hearing dedicated to #ElectionSecurity this year.

Not after the Mueller Report.

Not after DHS leadership was gutted.

Not after reports that it's not a priority.…

@realDonaldTrump @FoxNews Doesnt sound like IC thinks its a witch hunt. Will u acknowledge #Russia is STILL trying to disrupt our society? #IntelligenceCommittee hearing former IO said Russia was lingering abt USA n areas where they werent normally supposed 2b n '17 & arnd undergrnd fiber optic cables 1/
@realDonaldTrump @FoxNews 2/this led IOs to conclude that #Kremlin was quietly waging effort to map USA's telecommunications infrastructure perhaps preparing for an opportunity to disrupt it. #russia escalating #spygames report from June 2017 n @politico went unnoticed at the time @AriMelber
