Spanish Official Warns of “Winter of Great Suffering”

But insists support for ‘current thing’ should be maintained.

A top Spanish official has warned that Europeans are about to endure a “winter of great suffering” as a result of Russia fully suspending gas supplies during the freezing months.

Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles made the comments during an appearance on Radio National.

“We are going to have a winter of great suffering,” said the cabinet member, adding, “In Europe, we have to work hard to be ready to deal with it.”

Robles made reference to deliveries by Russian energy giant Gazprom already being throttled and claimed it was politically motivated, although Gazprom claims the real reason is Ukraine refusing to allow the gas to run through its territory.

Despite the energy shortage coming partly as a result of NATO powers seeking to prolong the war between Russia and Ukraine, Robles insisted that support for Ukraine should continue.

Putin “cannot win,” according to Robles, who said, “I want to believe that the political forces will rise to the occasion.”

She added that many in Spain will find it difficult to support gas rationing, despite this being recommended for all member states by EU leadership.

As we previously highlighted, many European countries are already imposing energy rationing in the form of new rules that dictate thermostat controls.

In Spain, at the height of summer, authorities have controversially banned air conditioning from dropping below 27°C (80.6°F) in all non-residential buildings, including shops, cinemas and cafes.

Onerous fines for those who flout the rules run all the way up to €600,000 euros for “serious violations.”

As we document in the video below, a winter of discontent is building to a crescendo as a result of western support for ‘the current thing’ as well as disastrous net zero green energy policies.

Videos: Biden Celebrates ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ As Stock Market Tanks Due To Rising Inflation

It doesn’t get more Orwellian than this

Published

CNN and other news networks broadcast a split screen of Joe Biden ‘celebrating’ the passage of his ‘Inflation Reduction’ Act while the Dow Jones simultaneously tanked to its lowest point for two years on the news that inflation is still at record highs.

Watch:

The Dow Jones fell by over 1,200 points and the S&P 500 fell more than 4% on Tuesday following the August CPI report, which highlighted how inflation rose by 0.1% despite gas prices reducing slightly.

The inflation rate in August was 8.3% according to the report.

The report also found that wages are down 2.8% and energy prices surged 15.8%, the biggest rise in four decades.

Grocery prices are up 13.5% from last year and are at their highest for 43 years.

Some Americans can’t even afford to buy food and are turning to ‘buy now pay later’ desperation:

Yet the White House describes this as “welcome moderation”:

The Press Secretary also claims that the inflation report shows “progress in bringing inflation down.”

Did someone give her the wrong report?

No, she’s just flat out lying again:

    German Foreign Minister Says Support For Ukraine Will Continue “No Matter What Voters Think”

    War will be prolonged at the expense of her own citizens.

    Despite soaring energy prices that threaten the stability of the country, Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said she would continue to support Ukraine “no matter what German voters think.”

    Baerbock made the remarkable comments during an event in Prague yesterday organized by the NGO Forum 2000.

    “If I give the promise to people in Ukraine – ‘We stand with you, as long as you need us’ – then I want to deliver. No matter what my German voters think, but I want to deliver to the people of Ukraine,” she said.

    The German official said that such an approach would not change even if large numbers of people were out in the streets protesting against crippling energy bills.

    “We are facing now wintertime, when we will be challenged as democratic politicians. People will go in the street and say ‘We cannot pay our energy prices’. And I will say ‘Yes I know, so we help you with social measures.’ But I don’t want to say ‘Ok then we stop the sanctions against Russia.’ We will stand with Ukraine, and this means the sanctions will stay also in wintertime, even if it gets really tough for politicians,” said Baerbock.

    The comment is a fairly stunning admission that world leaders are intent on prolonging the war for as long as possible, no matter how much it harms the countries they are supposed to represent.

    Germans face one of the worst cost of living crises in Europe, with governments arranging ‘warm up spaces’ in major cities where people who can’t pay their bills will go to avoid freezing to death, with blackouts expected.

    Citizens have already exhausted supplies of electric heaters, firewood and stoves in many areas as they prepare for energy rationing this winter, while inflation in Germany just hit its highest level in almost 50 years.

    Those planning to protest against the situation have also been demonized as domestic extremists by the authorities.

    As we reported last month, the interior minister of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), Herbert Reul (CDU), outrageously suggested Germans who may be planning to protest against energy blackouts were “enemies of the state” who want to overthrow the government.
