How Long Before Putin Shuts Off Natural Gas Delivery to Europe?

by Mish Shedlock, Mish Talk:

Here are the two key questions of the day Europe needs to address: How long and what’s the economic impact?

Key EU Natural Gas Points 

  • The long term average of of natural gas price in the EU is in the 12-15 range. It’s now 148.
  • The EU is paying 10 to 12 times its long-term average
  • Since June 8 (blue box) the price rose from 79 to 148, a rise of 87 percent.

Before addressing what happens if and when Putin shuts off natural gas to Europe, let’s take a look at what’s happening in the US.

The price units are not the same so it’s best to think in percentage terms.

Russia Claims To Have Captured The City Of Lysychansk In Ukraine Which Would Give Its Forces Control Of The Eastern Donbas Region

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Russia claimed on Sunday to have captured the city of Lysychansk, the last remaining holdout in Ukraine’s Luhansk province, which would give Moscow forces control of the eastern Donbas region.

What started out as “*gasp*, it’s WWIII!!!” has turned into another grinding conflict that most people have stopped paying attention to, and that’s just fine with Putin and Russia. Today the news comes in that Russian forces have captured the last holdout city in Ukraine, Lysychansk. But prophecy watchers take heart, it may yet turn into WWIII before too much longer.

Current Trends

The technical analysis last weekend highlighted that gold looks to be in a bottoming structure. Despite the sell-off this week, $1800 held, which could be another indication that gold is in the process of bottoming, with some final weak hands getting pushed out of the market.

Why Are Diseases Coming Back AFTER The COVID Vaccines Were Rolled Out?

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

If the COVID-19 vaccines really helped to keep people from getting sick, then why, in the age of the vaccine, are diseases coming back, and several outbreaks circulating the globe right now? It could be an easier question to answer than you would think.

Simply put, The Exposé says that it’s obvious why there are so many diseases being transmitted right now. And that’s because the COVID-19 vaccines cause AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) which is a complete degradation of the human immune system. Any small amount of exposure by those who have been vaccinated is resulting in an illness.

The course of human history may sometimes be shifted by a single spark if it happens to ignite a barrel of ideological gunpowder. With perfect timing for our Fourth of July holiday, an enormous explosion of public attention has suddenly engulfed the origins of the Covid outbreak, renewing the discussion of the causes of the global epidemic that has taken more than a million American lives and disrupted the entire world.

Riding Out the Recession in Commercial Real Estate: Time to Hold?

by John E. McNellis, Wolf Street:

Our property with a Walmart store has arguably declined 25% in value in the last six months. But cash-flow hasn’t changed.

Years ago—beset by the Great Recession—one of Tennessee’s finest developers shook his head at his financial statement and drawled, “My net worth’s gone down by half, but my cash flow’s the same.” He wasn’t alone. Commercial real estate nationwide lost around forty percent of its value during those trying times.

74.2 million people in the USA have not had a single dose of a Covid-19 Vaccine, & another 157 million have refused a 2nd or 3rd dose according to CDC

by Rhoda Wilson, Expose News:

The American people have seen right through President Biden’s propaganda and lies on the effectiveness of the Covid-19 injections because according to CDC data, 70% of the entire population of the USA have not had either a first, second or third dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Why the Ukraine War Is a Scam

by Dr. Joseph Mercola, Mercola:

STORY AT-A-GLANCE
  • The U.S. is using unofficial back channels to secure crucial supplies from Russia, while publicly talking about being tough on sanctions
  • On the one hand, the West wants to appear tough on Russia by issuing trade embargoes, sanctions and bans on investments, while simultaneously being more or less dependent on Russia for essential commodities such as oil, gas, food and fertilizer components
  • As a result, shortages of energy and food and rising inflation now loom large around the world, which could have catastrophic consequences for the average person, without doing anything to pressure Putin to pull out of Ukraine. In fact, the Russian ruble is now the strongest it’s been in seven years
