1. Let's break this down, because it is actually a bigger deal than most realize.

[Also reflects the short-term naivety of the political left]

2. In 2014 NATO members met in Wales. All NATO members agreed to immediately work toward 2% defense spending to protect EU interests from worrisome Russian expansion.

3. Russia had just expanded their interests into the Ukraine. The EU and Obama were giving the optic of being furious with Russia. The collective NATO push back, drummed by the subservient media, was Russia bad; bad Russia.
4. Media swooned at the unity of NATO. Angela Merkel, a heroine star of the political left writ large, promised to assist the alliance against Russian expansion.
5. However, behind the scenes.... underreported by all western media... Merkel was in discussions with Russia for the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. The pipeline was against NATO's interests, helped Russia's economy, and counter to the entire premise behind the Wales Agreement.
6. But Merkel didn't let that duplicity get in the way of her plan. While the subservient left-wing media looked away, Merkel negotiated for the Nord Stream 2 project. That project is almost complete and will go on-line this November. dw.com/en/nord-stream…
7. With Nord Stream 2 now complete, with Germany and Russia now in alignment to receive economic benefit from their partnership, now Merkel announces she will not uphold the Wales NATO agreement.
8. It doesn't take a geopolitical expert to see how Merkel was, quite simply, stringing along the NATO alliance; and never intended to meet her (Germany's) obligations. It was all a ruse....
9. But somehow, in some insufferable -yet consistent- way of deploying pretzel logic, the left-wing media (and all academics) will continue to say "Trump bad and Merkel good".
10. Despite the fact that Angela Merkel is specifically, provably and demonstrably working in unity with Russia to the benefit of both Germany and Russia; and directly against the interests of NATO alliance; somehow when it comes to NATO Trump is the bad guy. Go figure.
11. But wait..... it gets worse.
12. President Trump saw what Merkel was doing... He saw the duplicity as it was happening.... And he called attention to it.

13. But the media, well, you know the way they work.... The media totally ignored the warnings by Trump and actually went full stupid to keep selling a narrative that Trump was working with Putin. "Muh Russia" had to be the narrative despite being completely nonsense.
14. To make matters even worse, despite all of this duplicity, the House of Representatives voted on, and passed, a bill that would force President Trump to stay in NATO.

15. Just so we are clear. NATO member Germany is the largest economy in the EU and is working in partnership with Russia to build up Russia's economy and make the EU dependent on Russia for energy.
16. And, as a direct outcome of what is factually taking place, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, along with Democrats in office, is working diligently to support Chancellor Angela Merkel toward the end goals and objectives of Russia's Vladimir Putin.
17. While Speaker Pelosi is simultaneously tweeting this:
18. You just can't make this stuff up folks... it's bananas. The brains of Democrats somehow take what is factual, and they reverse cognition to make political claims about the inverse of what is demonstrably true.
19. Somehow the media, congress, Nancy Pelosi, the EU and Angela Merkel have aligned the geopolitical world where Germany can help Russia; Germany can rebuke NATO; Germany can renege on NATO promises;... and yet somehow President Donald Trump is the bad guy.
20. All of that said.... He's one man, but for some divinely inspired reason, he seems to be able to keep them surrounded and defeat their schemes.

This will not end well for Angela Merkel.

Trump Tariffs !!!!!!
