John Kelly squirms

Anyone else see the video of John Kelly squirming when Herr Dumpster tells his lie about Germany getting energy from Russia?

For the life of me I do not understand how Kelly continues to serve under this buffoon.
Thanks from Camelot and Hollywood

The two main political reporters for Axios have been predicting that Kelly would be gone before the election.

And I have read at least 3 sources that say that the US spends 3.5% of GDP on defense, not the 4.2% Dot Don claims.

And even more sources say Germany spends 1.29% and it's increasing, as the current agreement says it should.

But good for Kelly. I don't know how he can stand it.
Thanks from Hollywood

Kelly had a distinguished military career. He threw it all away on this con man and seriously soiled his reputation in the process. He is not too bright I guess.

I hope he makes the Dumpster call him into the oval office and FIRE him face to face. I don't think the Dumbster has the balls. I would refuse to vacate my office over a tweet !!! I'd file an EOEA claim if he is not notified in person or in writing that he has been fired. The government DOES have guidelines and policies, even at the white house level. I'd make Trump sweat !! Make him fire me, then sue his ass for wrongful termination !!!
Thanks from Camelot

I have heard from multiple sources that I trust that Kelly is still one of the few things holding the WH together.

And some people are speculating that he in fact feels a sense of obligation to try and keep the administration of his country on the tracks to the best of his ability. But the frustration level is rising.

I swallowed that crap until he lied about what the Democrat politician in Georgia said at the opening of a new building dedicated to some war veterans. When Kelly was shown the actual video of the event that proved that he lied, he still refused to apologize. He is an enabler and complicit in this fascist regime IMO.

There are also questions over whether Germany needs Nord Stream 2. The pipeline will deliver at least 55bn cubic metres (bcm) of natural gas from Russia to Germany annually, just like the first-double pipeline, representing 110 bcm together. At present, German natural gas consumption amounts to about 80 bcm a year, of which just over a third is covered by Russia. Many energy experts say efficiency measures will result in reduced demand, leaving a gas surplus.
Where the lie?

Lets continue,

Quote:
Donald Trump may have used typically emotive – if premeditated – language from the outset at the Nato summit in Brussels to lambast Germany for its willingness to build a gas pipeline, but the US president’s view that this will make Europe particularly dependent on Russian gas is widely shared by European politicians, thinktanks and energy specialists, including some in Berlin.

No country is more angry about the pipeline than Ukraine, an ally Trump is supposedly poised to abandon when he meets the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, in Helsinki on Monday.

Ukraine stands to lose billions of much needed dollars if Russia can transfer its gas transmissions to Europe across the Baltic Sea, away from a pipeline running across Ukrainian territory.

This week the Ukrainian president, Petro Poroshenko, said: “This is not a commercial project – it is not economical or profitable – it is absolutely a political project. There is no point, from the economic point of view, creating this project. This is absolutely a geopolitical project.”
Quote:
By contrast the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, has tried to maintain that the construction of Nord Stream 2 pipeline is a common sense economic project, with no political consequence. For many, her refusal to see the geopolitical implications of making Europe so dependent on Russian energy shows the reach that Gazprom, the majority shareholder in the project, has into Germany. The presence of the former German chancellor Gerhard Schröder on its board and his friendship with Putin seems only to symbolise the triumph of Russian interests.

The aim of a second double-pipeline – which was once scheduled for completion by the end of 2019, but is now likely to be delayed – is to act as a decades-long substitute for the decreasing production of the Netherlands, Denmark and Britain. For Merkel it is also politically essential to get Germany out of nuclear energy by 2022, but still reduce her country’s carbon emissions.

Sweden, Denmark and Finland have expressed ecological reservations about a second natural gas pipeline at the bottom of the Baltic. The Danish parliament has empowered its government to veto the pipeline on security or environmental grounds and, separately, the European commission has objected on the basis that the project will undermine its plans for an energy union, including a greater diversity of supply.

The UK has also been objecting, albeit less stridently. A letter sent by the former foreign secretary Boris Johnson to the all-party group of MPs on Poland two months ago echoed many of the objections voiced by the commission. The Foreign Office, in the eyes of some MPs, has not been keen to advertise its differences with Berlin in the middle of the Brexit negotiations. Poking Merkel over Nord Stream 2 risks alienating her at a sensitive moment.

The lie is that Trump said Germany gets 60% of its energy from Russia.

Germany gets about 50% of its natural gas from Russia. Germany makes only 20% of its energy from natural gas meaning, at most, Germany gets 10% of its energy from Russia.

Another day, another Trump lie.
Thanks from imaginethat, Camelot and Clara007

His opinion about Germany not needing the gas is total bullshit. You'll note he doesn't list any of the so called experts who think that.

While the EU as a whole needed to import 53.6 percent of the energy it consumed in 2016, Germany’s dependency was still higher with an import share of 63.5 percent – a slight rise compared to the previous year’s 61.9 percent.
