With leftists back in the White House after the 2020 election, the US is less prepared for the Second Signpost, having lost its energy independence. Actions beginning with the shutdown of the Keystone pipeline project have resulted in the average price for gas in the US at $6 per gallon.
Europe is doing the same thing to itself, making the future Second Signpost effects worse.
The European Union (EU) has been calling for an embargo of Russian oil in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The EU must seek other sources of oil to fill the void. Of course this embargo hurts Europe, not Russia.
Russia can simply get more customers such as China and India, who are lining up to buy Russian oil. That situation is making East Earth oil independent. Oil produced in East Earth, i.e. Russia, stays in East Earth, and is consumed by East Earth, i.e. China and India.
Europe must find new sources. Unfortunately, the new sources are all future Antichrist territory such as the Middle East and Africa. By depending more heavily on oil from these areas, Europe will be brought even lower economically when Iran runs out across the Middle East and turns off the oil spigot, cutting off one-quarter of the world’s oil supply.
In the simple diagram below, derived from various government oil sites, the reader should be able to see how oil is being redirected so East Earth is more independent from the Middle East and Center Earth, and i.e. Europe, will be easy pickings for the Antichrist of the Fourth Signpost. About 2.7 million barrels per day of Russian oil is changing course from Europe to China. That same 2.7 million bpd must come from somewhere, most likely the Middle East.
Bottom line, what was already going to be a hard time for Europe in the end times is being made much worse.
