Who’s laughing now? Trump prediction comes true as Russia cuts Germany’s fuel supply off

In 2018 at the United Nations, the delegation from Germany was captured on video laughing at Trump’s warning: “Germany will become totally dependent on Russian energy if it does not immediately change course.”

As it turns out, Trump was right.

On Wednesday, Russia announced it was cutting off Germany’s gas supply via Nord Stream 1 for the next three days, the Daily Wire reported.

“I assume that we will be able to cope with it,” Klaus Mueller, the president of Germany’s network regulator remarked to Reuters. “I trust that Russia will return to 20% on Saturday, but no one can really say.”

Now Germany is admitting they are completely dependent and all the country can do is “trust” Russia to deliver more energy. Trusting Russia didn’t work out too well for Ukraine.

Sarah Palin loses special election in bid for Congress

Democrat Mary Peltola, a former state representative, has defeated former Alaska Gov. Peltola won a special election that also included GOP candidate Nick Begich for Alaska’s lone House seat, the New York Post reported. Peltola will be the first Alaska Native elected to Congress, NBC reported.

The special election was the state’s first test of ranked-choice voting, which was implemented after a 2020 ballot measure. The same system will be used in November.

Sen. Cotton slams ranked-choice voting

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) slammed the ranked-choice voting: “60% of Alaska voters voted for a Republican, but thanks to a convoluted process and ballot exhaustion — which disenfranchises voters — a Democrat ‘won.'”

Fox host deposed in voting systems lawsuit

Fox host Maria Bartiromo is set to be deposed as part of Dominion Voting Systems’ defamation lawsuit against the cable news giant, The Hill reported.

Bartiromo is slated to take questions from Dominion lawyers on Sept. 8, according to a Los Angeles Times report, citing a filing in Delaware Superior Court.

Dominion is seeking $1.6 billion in damages from Fox for what the voting systems company has alleged was the network’s broadcasting of false claims of voter fraud pushed by former President Trump and his allies following the 2020 presidential election.

Trump’s attorneys file for “special master” to oversee seized materials

In a filing on Wednesday night, former president Donald Trump’s attorneys argued that a “special master” is needed to determine if any of the seized materials are subject to executive privilege, The Hill reported.

If “left unchecked, the DOJ will impugn, leak, and publicize selective aspects of their investigation,” according to the filing by Trump’s legal team.
