Jacob Paul of The Express UK interviewed Brandon J. Weichert about the German government’s decision to suspend their much-needed Nord Stream 2 Pipeline with Russia. This was done in retaliation for the recent Russian threats against Ukraine and the dangerous Russian anti-satellite weapons test that almost destroyed the International Space Station.

Biden blinked, Putin won
Brandon J. Weichert’s most recent column in The Asia Times explains why President Biden lost bigly to Vladimir Putin…and why he’ll keep losing to the strongman in the Kremlin.
US cannot afford a world war with Russia
Brandon J. Weichert’s newest op-ed at The Asia Times shows how bad the US policy toward Russia and Eastern Ukraine really is.
Europe Joins China
The EU has chosen sides in the budding Cold War 2.0: they are with China, clearly.
Trump Is Saving NATO, Not Threatening It
In my August 6, 2020 op-ed for American Greatness I show how Trump is strengthening NATO by making Germany pay their fair share for the alliance while repositioning US forces from Germany to the new frontline against Russia, Poland.
A European Army Will Not Be a Threat
Clearly, history has returned to Europe. And with the return of history has also come the return of geopolitics and the need for traditional military force. If France and Germany want to build their combined military force to balance against the Americans, let them. If Berlin and Paris want to try to make nice with Moscow, let them try that, too.
The Germans Will Never Learn
“Let Maas’s new world order of multipolarity and balance ring out. It’d save America much money and many lives, being able to hand off some responsibilities to capable allies. Unfortunately, though, the Germans are kidding themselves if they believe they’ll be able to achieve this in Europe – not without a great power backing their play (and that great power is notFrance). They will be forced to choose between the United States and Russia. I suspect that Berlin will ultimately end up in the United States’ camp.”
NATO Must Pay
“Thus, NATO’s post-Cold War mission is confusing and pointless. Moreover, support for NATO from its own members is pathetic. And, Europe’s behavior toward the United States regarding Washington’s disproportionate support for NATO is both unfair and unethical. This is especially true, when NATO’s own policies are creating the very threats it claims to be defending against!”
The Greatest Trade Deal That Never Was
“Trump recognizes how unfairly our “partners” are treating us. He also exposed how insincere our trading partners were when they so readily declined his deal of true free trade. What’s more, he’s reinvigorating the image of the American president as a figure who commands–and deserves–the respect of foreign leaders, friend and foe alike.”
America Became a Battlefield in the Russo-Ukraine War in 2016
“It’s time to face the fact that the United States has become the battleground for a ridiculous proxy war between two cousins, Ukraine and Russia. It’s no different than how the United States was the victim of an internal blood feud within Islam on September 11, 2001.”
