The US Constitution’s Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms received a huge affirmation today from the United States Supreme Court. Later in today’s TruNews, we have important information regarding the rapidly approaching nuclear war between NATO and Russia.

Lt. Gen Evgeny Buzhinsky told Russian state TV that the West is playing with fire in blockading Russia.
The panelists are realizing that they’re heading for a major war with NATO
These tough announcements by two European armies are likely to be heard by Putin!
“For a credible deterrent, we need both the means and the political will to implement nuclear deterrence if necessary,” said Air Force chief Ingo Gerhartz (56) on Friday at the Kiel International Seapowers Symposium. In plain language:
If necessary, we NATO states must be prepared to use nuclear weapons if Russia does it first.
Attention is moving from Ukraine to Kaliningrad and the Baltic states
Moscow’s response has been threatening. Russia’s security council chief Nikolai Patrushev on Tuesday warned of “serious” consequences for Lithuania if the ban on rail transit isn’t lifted.
“Russia will certainly respond to such hostile actions,” Patrushev said at a regional security meeting in Kaliningrad, adding that “appropriate measures” are in the works and they “will be taken in the near future”.
“Their consequences will have a serious negative impact on the population of Lithuania,” he said.
Lithuania seeks to decouple from the Russian power grid by 2024 but Russia might just help that before then.
Lithuania seeks to decouple from the Russian power grid in 2024, a year ahead of schedule, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda said on Monday.
European Union members Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia’s power grids are working in concert with those of Russia and Belarus, and depend on Russia to ensure stable power supplies.
A 1.6-billion-euro ($1.94 billion) project financed by the EU aims to disconnect the Baltic states from Russia and Belarus in 2025 and connect them to the decentralised power system of continental Europe.
This is how the British press is describing a situation that is entirely of its own making.
Gazprom, the Kremlin-controlled gas giant, slashed supplies delivered to Germany, Italy and Slovakia last week. As well as causing chaos in Europe right now, there are fears Russia could cut off more gas in retaliation to Western sanctions at a crucial time – during the winter when demand will soar. This has prompted fears of energy shortages and blackouts in Europe over the cold winter months.
Now, countries are stocking up on coal so they can keep the lights on over winter as Europe suspects Russian President Vladimir Putin will send prices soaring and supplies plummeting even further.
The cut has also forced countries to trigger emergency warnings.
Denmark has already activated the first step of a three-stage emergency gas plan.
The head of the International Energy Agency has warned that Russia may stop supplying gas to Europe this winter.
Fatih Birol says he believes a complete shutdown is not the most likely scenario but that Europe needs to work on contingency plans just in case.
In recent weeks, several European countries said they received significantly less Russian gas than they expected.
Russian officials deny it’s deliberate and have blamed technical issues.
Before the invasion of Ukraine, Europe imported about 40% of its natural gas from Russia but that figure has now fallen to about 20%.
All the Green agendas go out the window as Germany prepares to fire up coal and nuclear.
Germany has said the deteriorating gas market situation means Europe’s largest economy must limit the use of natural gas for electricity production and burn more coal for a “transitional period.”
Economy Minister Robert Habeck on Sunday warned that the situation is going to be “really tight in winter” without precautionary measures to prevent a supply shortage.
As a result, Germany will seek to compensate for a cut in Russian gas supplies by increasing the burning of coal — the most carbon-intensive fossil fuel in terms of emissions and therefore the most important target for replacement in the transition toward renewable alternatives.
“That’s bitter, but it’s almost necessary in this situation to reduce gas consumption. We must and we will do everything we can to store as much gas as possible in summer and autumn,” the Green Party’s Habeck said in a statement, according to a translation.
“The gas storage tanks must be full in winter. That has top priority,” he added.
Just have a look. A full HALF of Germany’s coal imports come from….RUSSIA
This shows the dependance of Europe on Russian gas
It is the nations of the Global South that are really suffering whatever the media tells you about specific conditions
Sri Lanka’s debt-laden economy has “collapsed” after months of shortages of food, fuel and electricity, the prime minister told lawmakers in comments that underscored the country’s dire situation as it seeks help from international lenders.
Ranil Wickremesinghe told parliament the South Asian nation faces “a far more serious situation” than the shortages alone, and he warned of “a possible fall to rock bottom.”
“Our economy has completely collapsed,” he said on Wednesday.
Violent protests against the economic policies of Ecuador’s President Guillermo Lasso have paralysed the country’s capital and other regions, but the government on Wednesday rejected their conditions for dialogue.
Quito is experiencing food and fuel shortages after 10 days of demonstrations in which protesters at times have clashed with police. After officials rejected the conditions for negotiations, the United States government issued an advisory urging travellers to reconsider visiting the country due to “civil unrest and crime”.
