Tax Cuts: Polish Government Introduces ‘Anti-Inflation Shield’

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced the main features of a new economic program on Thursday meant to counteract and soften the impact of rising inflation.

He explained that there were a few reasons for the growth of inflation, not only in Poland but also throughout Europe. Among these reasons he listed are the prices of Russian gas and the increase of gas prices to match CO2 emissions.

The PM pointed out that inflation is at the highest it has been in 28 years, not just in Poland, but said with reassurance that the Polish government is doing everything in its power to help Poles survive the situation.

Armed Agents in Texas School District Arrest Concerned Parents in Their Own Homes

The Round Rock Independent School District (RRISD) in Texas is using its own armed agents to arrest parents who speak out against the school board’s policies, according to Christopher Rufo in the City Journal.

Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, said:

The battle lines are clear: on one side, the Biden administration, public school bureaucrats, and their armed agents; on the other, parents and families who oppose school closures, mask mandates, critical race theory and corruption. Public school officials have demonstrated a willingness to use police power to silence and intimidate their opponents.

Two fathers, Jeremy Story and Dustin Clark, had spoken out against the school board’s “alleged corruption and school officials’ hostility toward parents.” In August, while “produc[ing] evidence that the board had covered up an alleged assault by the superintendent, Hafedh Azaiez, against a mistress,” Story, a minister, was cut off midsentence as Azaiez ordered armed officers to remove him from the premises, according to Chronicles Magazine.

COVID Death Toll Under Biden Set to Surpass Trump, In Less Time

The U.S. death toll from coronavirus under President Joe Biden is set to surpass the number of fatalities recorded under Trump in less time, despite the fact that the vaccine wasn’t available during Trump’s time in office.

Figures from Johns Hopkins University show that 378,955 people died from COVID-19 in the United States during Biden’s first ten months in office.

That compares to an pre-existing death toll of 396,442 before Biden took office.

ESPN Hemorrhaging Subscribers, Down to 76 Million as Disney Scrambles to Stem Tide

Disney-owned ESPN subscribers dropped precipitously in the last 12 months, shrinking another 10% to end fiscal 2021 on Oct. 2 with 76 million US households, according to a Friday SEC filing noted by Deadline.

Within ESPN, college sports-oriented ESPNU fell from 62 million homes in 2020 to 51 million over the last year, while ESPN News slipped from 62 million to 50 million over the same period.

The company said the drop — based on data from Nielsen, includes traditional Multichannel Video Programming Distributors (MVPDs) such as Comcast and DirectTV, as well as most digital Over-The-Top (OTT) streaming packages.

For reference, ESPN boasted just north of 100 million households almost a decade ago, a significant decay for one of Disney’s longtime cornerstones.

Florida Reports Lowest Daily Coronavirus Cases Per Capita in Nation

Florida is reporting the lowest amount of coronavirus cases per capita in the nation after Gov. Ron DeSantis was widely criticized by media outlets for his handling of the virus.

The Sunshine State reported a daily average of 1,393 coronavirus cases as of Friday, six per 100,000, which was a two percent decrease over the last two weeks.

DeSantis has been slammed by critics in the media since the start of the pandemic over his opposition to government-imposed mask and vaccine mandates. In 2020, DeSantis was accused by a Democratic politician of going on a “killing spree” for opposing mask mandates and a Vanity Fair headline from September of this year referred to the governor as an “angel of death.”

At the same time Florida reported the lowest amount of new cases in the country per capita, coronavirus cases are surging in many states where strict lockdown orders were issued by Democratic governors.

It’s the ‘Nu’ Variant. Everyone Run for Your Lives!

Did you hear? There’s a new coronavirus variant loose upon the land. It’s bigger, taller, faster, more lethal, and more deadly than any other variant in history. They call it the “Nu” variant because nu is the 13th letter of the Greek alphabet and this is the 13th variant discovered.

How could we get so unlucky?

Actually, that’s pretty silly. Scientists have never pitted this Nu variant against the Delta variant in a race so we don’t know if it’s really the fastest. But my money is on Nu, otherwise, there goes the narrative and we’re back to trying to drum up hysteria by falling back on the Delta variant’s supposed resistance to vaccines.

France: Is Éric Zemmour an Anti-Semite?

The rumor that a Jew making racist and anti-Semitic remarks could be a candidate in France’s presidential election of spring 2022 has crossed the country’s borders. Worse, the rumor is that this supposedly racist, anti-Semitic Jew, Éric Zemmour, is buoyed by polls that forecast him as a very possible second-round candidate against France’s current President Emmanuel Macron.

Sacrebleu! How could such a thing have happened? Is Zemmour really a racist? Is he carried by a wave of the extreme right, as many on the left suggest? Is France on the verge of tipping over into fascism?

Of course not. What is actually happening in France is a liberation of freedom of speech. For the first time in 40 years, topics such as immigration, Islam, and the preference of the elites for unvetted mass-migration are being spoken about openly on radio and television.

The Notre Dame, which was burned down in a mysterious fire in 2019 is being rebuilt as a “woke theme park.”

Instead of rebuilding the historical cathedral as a religious monument, the reconstruction of Notre Dame will be revamped with a “discovery trail” that will lead visitors through 14 themed chapels of varying woke quantities dedicated to social justice, designed to be accessible for non-Catholics.

Using the church arson as a means to “Build Back Better,” each of the chapels will be dedicated to social justice issues, including a chapel dedicated to the environment and others with African and Asian themes.

According to critics who have reviewed plans for the fire-ravaged cathedral, confessional boxes, alters, and classical sculptures are being replaced by trendy art murals, with sound and special lighting effects to create “emotional spaces.”

Italy Bans Unvaccinated From Cinemas, Restaurants and Sports Events

As protesters and governments alike braced for another round of unrest during the coming weekend, with most of the US preoccupied by the Thanksgiving holiday, Italy’s increasingly authoritarian government has declared instead that a growing number of government workers will be subjected to vaccine mandates.

According to the new rules, unvaccinated people will not be able to enter venues such as cinemas, restaurants and sports events.

Stringent new rules further blur the line between a vaccine mandate and the status quo in Italy, potentially prompting another wave of protests, like those that swept across Rome and a handful of other European cities recently as governments intensified their restrictions on vaccinations with increasingly authoritarian policies.

According to the Italian newswire service Ansa, the Italian government, led by former ECB head “super Mario” Draghi, has decided to “tighten the screws” so to speak, on Italians who have been “unwilling” to get the vaccine.

Marine Le Pen: France Could Pay the Fine the CJEU Imposed on Poland

In an interview for Polish weekly “Tygodnik Solidarnosc”, the leader of the French National Rally Marine Le Pen criticized recent European Commission actions against Poland.

“The European Union and its institutions are fulfilling their political plan in the direction of European federalism, which aims to standardize norms and values and gradually erode nation states and their particularities. The Commission’s policy has become a forbidden area for ordinary people. The EU’s main foundation resolves around member states giving up their sovereignty. This covers the right of self-determination of nations, as well as the defense of their culture, values, way of life, and traditions,” she warned.

Le Pen also underlined her support for bilateral relations in international policy and proposed a surprising concept in which France could bear the burden of the fines imposed on Poland by the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU).

China Bans Celebrities From “Showing Off Wealth” And “Spreading Rumors” Online

Celebrities in China have been banned from showing off wealth and “extravagant pleasure” on social media. The announcement was the latest move in the government’s effort to crackdown on the entertainment industry.

On Tuesday, the Cyberspace Administration of China said that celebrities and fan-club pages should “follow public order and good customs, adhere to correct public opinion orientation and value orientation, promote socialist core values, and maintain a healthy style and taste.”

The internet regulator also said that celebrities will not be allowed to spread rumors, post private or false information, provoke their fans to “verbally attack each other,” and encourage fans to participate in “illegal fundraising or irrational investment.”

The news was met with global alarm, prompting financial markets to plummet and new travel bans to be put in place.

According to a public statement by the Botswana government, the new mutation was first discovered in four people who had received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Martinique: Several Police Injured as French Caribbean Rocked by COVID-19 Vaccine Protests

Ten police officers were injured and several journalists shot at on the French Caribbean island of Martinique overnight Thursday to Friday as protests sparked by Covid-19 vaccine measures spread.

Fresh violence was reported on the territory despite a night curfew, following more than a week of unrest on the nearby French island of Guadeloupe.

Five police officers were injured by gunfire on Martinique and five others by objects thrown at them during operations, according to police figures sent to AFP.

French government spokesman Gabriel Attal called the unrest “totally unacceptable” and promised “firmness” in dealing with the rioters.

Four journalists, including an AFP photographer, were shot at by men on a motorbike late on Thursday as they worked in the main Martinique town of Fort-de-France. None was injured.

The protests on Guadeloupe were started by hardline opponents of compulsory vaccination for health workers and fire fighters on the island — a measure already implemented in mainland France.

‘Go Through. Go, ‘ Lukashenko Tells Migrants at Polish Border

BRUZGI, Belarus/MOSCOW (Reuters) —Belarusian leader Alexander Lukashenko told migrants stranded at the border with Poland on Friday that his country would help them to return home if they wanted but would not force them.

Thousands of migrants are stuck on the European Union’s eastern frontier, in what the EU says is a crisis Minsk engineered by distributing Belarusian visas in the Middle East, flying them in and pushing them across the border.

But Lukashenko said it was the EU that deliberately provoked a humanitarian crisis that needed to be resolved and he told the migrants he would not play politics with their fate.

In his first public appearance at the border since the start of the crisis, Lukashenko met migrants at a warehouse turned into shelter and told them they were free to head west or go home as they chose.

People Smuggling is a Business Earning Big Money

People smugglers benefit most from the desperate efforts of migrants to get to Europe. A video made by Sky News TV and published by the Associated Press shows how big the business is, with one smuggler telling reporters he earns about $100,000 (€89,000) a year.

The people of Iraq, specifically Iraqi Kurds, are the most commonly found among the migrants currently trying to get across the Belarusian-Polish border to the European Union.

The smuggling business continues despite complications such as European Union sanctions against Belavia, an airline that transported migrants from the Middle East.

Ukraine Reinforces Guards at the Border With Belarus

Ukraine has launched a special operation on the border with Belarus, reinforcing guards by an additional 8,500 soldiers and police officers. They should prevent possible attempts to cross the border illegally. Ukrainian Interior Minister Yevhen Yenin said earlier that the current number of border guards had almost doubled.

“At the Ukrainian-Belarusian border, the threat of a migratory crisis and the likelihood of the influx of migrants redirecting to Ukraine remains, and therefore the authorities are jointly taking steps to strengthen border protection in this area,” the Ukrajinska Pravda newspaper reported.

  1. “We’ll Wait Until Germany Takes Us In”

    Hey clever western voters: Do you know why refugees have the above statement in mind? Has Merkel’s misbehaviour given them , the 2 billion “refugeesd” , nay, invaders, this impression?

    Invaders have been burning their unsophisticated shelters, using all type of violence with all other EU members and it has worked wonders.

    They are using the same tactics here with Poland, expecting EU, as usual, will force Poland to let the invaders in.

    Dilemma: If EU forces Poland to accept the invaders, it will alienate Poland

    and say “we are oppressed as we were under the Soviets and now even worse.

    If EU does not force Poland then EU is breaking their dhimmi promise for muslim and arab countries of the systematic Population Replacement and colonization by THE PEOPLE WHO ENLIGHTENED EUROPE.

    ALLAH IS COMPASSIONATE to you kuffar as long as you surrender your women and countries to us. Otherwise allah has promised you will be torured at our harsh hands.

    “OH, Pirate, tell your believers to be merciful amongst themselves and harsh against kuffar. The harsher you are, the more victorious”

    No doubt, our allah is greater that’s why the west, willingly turned themselves into our dhimmi slaves. You can see with your own eyes.

    Does the west even once stop like cows or sheep under a tree ruminate the world events and think why the muslim world is baying for Jewish blood?

    Just think of Malaysia, Iran, Pakistan, why do they hate the Jews, do they have any shared borders with Israel?

    Or there is another reason? A more diabolical reason?

    • If the EU forces Poland to permit migrants to breach the border they will be breaking their own Schengen accord which, as I understand it, requires all countries which have external borders to protect them from illegal entry. Much as Hungary did and does. The EU should be supporting and giving aid to Poland. But we all know that will never happen.

    • I read once that even one jew on the planet was superfluous and would lead to conflict.

      As to Poland, it would appear that their leadership is both intelligent and strategic. If they can get through the current garbage and ditch the EU, they might want to do a trade deal with Russia. That would put Poland in a highly coveted position.

  2. So, yes I al going to say the obvious again.

    The numbers of covid cases was BS as we all know.

    The numbers for covid deaths was BS as we all know.

    The numbers of vaccinated are ………..what do you reckon? Factual?

    Don’t lose sight of the truth – liars never stop lying.

    • “A recent 700,000 person study in Israel found that those with immunity from previous Covid infection had 27 times lower risk of symptomatic Covid infection compared those who were vaccinated.”

        • :-))
          Are you sure they are taking those ” jabs” ? or it is just another media stunt ? :-))
          There is nothing certain about them and theirs MSM..they own.
          Lies on paper is just another version of virtual reality they are creating..That’s how it works..

          • Creative Lies about Reality are their tools to Paradigm and framework our Life and who we are..
            If you get out of that Box of artificial reality you are a Free Man..
            That’s why they are so desperate to control this fake Narrative ..It’s done by a World wide MSM Network
            For people from CEE is easy to get out ,because is still fresh in our national memory knowledge, how this mechanism mass manipulation and deception works..

  3. Belarus is a rather poor country. The Potato Agro-Führer brought her to near total collapse. The regime is supported by oil and gas subsidies from Russia. In this way, Lukashenka is selling his loyalty to Putin.
    Recently I read a curious thing on the Belarusian Telegram channel: “… this month the teachers were withheld part of their salaries to“ help ”migrants. I wonder if these are new taxes? Or did the authorities really think that no one would notice? But only teachers’ salaries far from such that it was possible to overlook something.
    One person is to blame for the migrant crisis. And only he can pay for his mistakes both in front of Belarusians and in front of the extreme tourists themselves. “

  5. ‘Trans Commissioner’, the infiltration of the perverted into the lives of children carries on apace. Nowhere is safe from this abomination. Encouraged and applauded by a society collapsing rapidly from within and besieged from without, our future is bleak to say the least.

  6. Hi Ned i send you link whats ahead of us in Europe after German election..https://youtu.be/5jSjG3GSpms
    Phd Legutko , chair of ECRU party in EU saying the same and is Scary !
    Prof. Legutko: We did not free ourselves from communism to fall into leftist despotism 30 years later “”All these things that you said here actually increase Germany’s power in the EU and make the European Union a left-wing creature, which in Poland’s situation is quite a terrible prospect, because we did not break out of communism and fall back thirty years later. into some other leftist despotism. This is really something that can scare you, ”says Prof. Ryszard Legutko, PiS MEP. How do you evaluate the coalition agreement of three German parties – SPD, Greens and FPD – which will form the government? It says that bilateral relations with Poland will be mainly focused on taking initiatives to develop civil society. Honestly, it sounds like an announcement of interference in Poland’s internal affairs.

    Prof. Ryszard Legutko: It sounds like that. This is a very aggressive statement, because civil society are organizations that hypothetically do not belong to the government. So if the German government wants to force the Polish government to interfere in any way with non-governmental organizations, this is a very far-reaching interference.

    I said that hypothetically they are not subject to, but practically non-governmental organizations, the ones with a left-wing attitude – and there are many of them and they are the richest – need support from European institutions and the European Commission, which in itself is a contradiction to the idea of ​​an NGO. At the moment, we have a situation where European institutions and the European Commission support various left-wing activities, abortion, LGBT, etc. Also those that are focused on fighting right-wing governments. And I understand that somehow, the new German government also wants to join this in an as yet unspecified manner. It is all very dangerous. In general, this coalition agreement is quite scary when it comes to Polish-German relations, although we know perfectly well that Germany is a country that has been trying to organize the lives of its neighbors for a long time, and the German ambassadors – not all but many – behave incredibly arrogant. The current German ambassador to Poland is an example of this.

    The coalition partners in Germany also express their support for the strengthening of integration and the transformation of the EU towards a federation “based on the principle of decentralization and subsidiarity”. How to understand? As the liquidation of nation states and the reduction of the role of urban centers in favor of small local governments directly reporting to the European headquarters?

    And yes and no, because it also says about certain specific obligations that the German state has, given its role and economic strength in Europe. That is, the federal state will implicitly look like the governments of the countries will not have much to say, but it will have a lot to say Brussels and, of course, the governments of some countries, i.e. the German state, which, given its strength and role in Europe, it will have to keep an eye on it all, reorganize and interfere, punish etc. It sounds gloomy, unfortunately, but it all looks like this and it is going to be that way, and at least there is a real danger that it can be realized.

    It is always the case that – I repeat it over and over again, because it is an elementary truth and it is often not remembered – the European institutions have only as much power as they will get from the biggest players, mainly from Germany and partly from France. Therefore, if the role of European institutions increases, the role of the strongest states, i.e. Germany, increases. The Polish government, on the other hand, will have much less to say than it is now. The German government in this country will have much more to say than it has to say now, and now it has a lot.

    It’s just that this is an expansion of the competences of individual institutions of the European Union, because Berlin will actually want to strengthen all of them: from the European Commission, through the EP to the CJEU, it seems to be nothing more than an attempt to push the EU into the abyss and the beginning of its end, because the EU bureaucracy has already shown that it is incapable of any meaningful and adequate response to emerging crises, and that will not change just because Berlin will have more power. How do you professor see it?

    I have long since lost any faith in the European Union and the possibility of self-correction. Anyway, all this language is mendacious. There it says about subsidiarity that you need to strengthen subsidiarity. Subsidiarity has long since been raped and killed in the European Union. She’s gone. It is no longer in the power of the European Commission, the CJEU, I am not talking about Parliament anymore. The principle of admission does not exist anymore – she was raped. If they use a language that is lying or blurring the reality, they are not able to reform, they just wander in that direction. It is such a big machine that slowly slides down because it does not know how to brake, and even if it does, it does not want to brake.

    part 1

    • part 2 of translation :
      ..”So what is written there is not some prank of the three German left-wing parties, but a way of thinking that is very widespread in European institutions, throughout this European establishment. This is, of course, a recipe for more troubles and new crises and conflicts. It seems to them – and this is an old dream of a tyrant – that if you strengthen the central power and silence all critics, shout, neutralize, then the problems will be solved and that people will love at some point. They do not see that – people do not know if they once loved, but were sympathetic towards them – the number of people who do not like the EU anymore, wish it as badly as possible and want the Union to be dissolved at all, is growing. This number of people is growing, and it is growing mainly in Western Europe. There are also voices very critical of the direction of the Union’s development in Poland. So this is a recipe for more trouble.

      Sometimes, when I observe these European politicians, I have the impression that they are a bit like those moths that push themselves into the fire or the light – they just have to, they are programmed to do so. Their words, their minds, their actions are programmed in such a way that they must go in that direction. There is no discussion with them, no exchange of views, no possibility of communication, no compromise. They are like those horses in carriages with their left and right sides covered and they only know that they are to go straight.

      In this coalition agreement there is one more, which seems to be very dangerous, namely on the issue of migration it was agreed to accelerate asylum procedures, family reunification and return procedures. In the opinion of the coalition partners, family reunification should also be facilitated. In addition, the coalition wants to create more legal access roads to Germany. As I understand it, Germany intends to continue to bring in migrants. In your opinion, is there a risk that Germany will try to use the current security crisis related to migration to completely subjugate the European Union countries and create such a Union of European Socialist Republics?

      It is always such a tendency. You have to remember that these are left-wing, liberal parties. For them, immigration is a sacred thing, but I think Western European societies will not be so eager after 2015. At this point, it may turn out to be a paper record, although maybe this pedal will push harder – I don’t know, it’s hard for me to say at the moment, but all the things you said here actually increase Germany’s power in the EU and make the Union A European left-wing creation, which in the situation of Poland is quite a terrible prospect, because not because we liberated ourselves from communism and, thirty years later, again fall into another, left-wing despotism. This is actually something that can be frightening. “..

    • Very interesting interview. I fear Eric Zemmour will only split the right wing vote in the French presidential election resulting in more of the same globalist mediocrity – always assuming he stands.

  8. As a german I know now what my fellow germans who supported the forced jab will say when they are asked to defend themselves:

    I was just following orders / recommondations of the health officials etc.

    Makes me sick.

  9. A new coalition in Germany: Former Poland Minister of Foreign affairs Waszczykowski: They brazenly assume that it will be German Europe

    “But I say it openly. They write euphemistically about federalization, while I speak openly about hegemonization. They already brazenly assume that it will be German Europe, that they will dictate. Already in the coalition agreement it is openly said that at least two instruments of disciplining states will be used, and therefore primarily the CJEU, ”says Witold Waszczykowski, former Minister of Foreign Affairs and now a PiS MEP, in an interview with the portal wPolityce.pl.
    The German coalition agreement between the SPD, the Greens and the FPD contains provisions that are very dangerous for Poland, as Germany assumes that they will interfere in Poland’s internal affairs, for example by supporting the development of civil society, i.e. the de facto introduction of participatory democracy controlled from Germany in Poland. How do you evaluate this type of provision in the agreement of the ruling coalition of our immediate neighbor?

    Witold Waszczykowski: I am indeed a bit disappointed with this coalition agreement, although it is extensive – probably a hundred or so pages. He seemed to provide a detailed diagnosis and prescription, while ideology seems to be dominant there. This is the first disappointment. Second: I was hoping that if the coalition includes the FDP, a liberal party, but in the sense of economic liberalism, i.e. it assumes that it will be guided by economic calculations, there will be a certain brake on this ideology, for ideologically motivated solutions. It was not found.

    Another disappointment is the course on federalism. It seemed to me that after Brexit, when we lost a powerful EU member, there would be a reflection in Europe that the ‘even more of the same’ reasoning was wrong. There was hope that Europe, and especially Germany, would draw conclusions and stop this direction from politicizing Europe, because there was no support. I am not saying that I am threatening you with other exits here, but many countries do not like federalism, i.e. more competences for European institutions. The next disappointment is – I have already talked about ideology – this ideology enters powerfully into energy and climate issues. It is clear to the naked eye last year that this emphasis on accelerating green plans or the concept of economic development has led to perhaps not a catastrophe, but to serious problems, perturbations on the energy market. Energy prices are soaring. Rather, I expected a certain reflection, a slowdown or a certain cover for this further program, and here is also an acceleration, an announcement of an even faster departure from coal.

    From the Polish point of view, there are also some other disappointments. First of all, Poland is presented there in a caricatured way. We are a great trading partner for Germany, bigger than Russia, and there is no reference to these issues. On the other hand, Poland is mentioned there as a country that needs to be honored or the victims of World War II should be noted. Okay, but what about redress after everything that happened during World War II? There is not. There is an issue of this Weimar Triangle – that is a mythical issue. It’s good that the Germans are coming back, because the Germans were the ones who left the Triangle some time ago. But the point is not that this Triangle should take on a courtesy formula, but that it should have an impact on the decisions of the European Union. It does not seem to be so.

    Another disappointment from the Polish point of view: if the Greens entered there, who had a clear position towards Russia, towards Nord Stream, it turns out that the coalition agreement does not mention the policy towards Russia from the point of view of threats. There is also nothing about the Nord Stream, which also contributes to the current energy problems, because Russia will manipulate it. I don’t want to talk about marijuana anymore. Amazing. I wrote this on Twitter once that the panacea for the climate and economic problems is to get high and “fly away”. I understand that the left is behind this, but that is not what we expected, not such recipes. I still miss German beer – you have problems, that’s prosit, hit a few more German beers.
    part 1

  10. part2..Also a big disappointment – not what you expected from such a great country, not such recipes.

    Don’t you get the impression that this provision on the reactivation of the Weimar Triangle is calculated only and exclusively to distract Poland from the idea of ​​the Three Seas Initiative and generally weaken this Three Seas project? After all, the Germans have evidently been looking for tools to stop this project for a long time, and have made many attempts in this direction. How do you rate it?

    This cannot be ruled out. Indeed, they can be tempting. They had already tempted Tusk with some European directorate. Sikorski entered some concept of the Berlin-Warsaw-Moscow triangle, where, of course, we were “flower in the sheepskin coat”, because in such direct cooperation Germany-Russia would not allow us. We could only legitimize this condominium above us. I also do not rule out that they will be tempting. On the other hand, if the Triangle remains such a facade and there will be an authority that will take on it, or possibly be platformed at some point, it will again show propaganda: here you are, we are appreciated by France and Germany. Of course, these two countries will not agree to anything, on any concession to Poland, but they will blink an eye. Previous governments were marginalized, but we have some influence again.

    The Germans probably stopped fighting the Three Seas Initiative, because some time ago they announced their accession at the observer’s level to be on the alert. I think they see that they are not able to stop the two programs on which the Three Seas Initiative, i.e. transport (Via Carpatia, Via Baltica), is based and continues to develop – we are painstakingly building. And energy diversification is developing. Our gas terminal is developing. In a moment it will be the second one, in Gdańsk, and we are finishing the Norwegian pipe. If I remember correctly, the Croats also started building a gas terminal on the island of Krk. So there is a chance that this Three Seas Initiative will have foundations for economic cooperation. I also hope that the Three Seas will develop if, for example, Ukraine and Moldova – countries that are directly adjacent to the Three Seas countries – join these programs, they would be extremely useful to complement these gas, energy and transport projects.

    As long as we are in power and we have determination, we will save the Three Seas – it will be an important element of development in this part of Europe.

    The German coalition agreement in fact provides for federalization and strengthening of the EU institutions, but it means a significant strengthening of Germany’s position and influence in Europe. Looking at the entirety of this coalition agreement with regard to plans for Poland, do you not get the impression that it is already formulated as if the Germans considered us Poles to be subordinate to them?

    They dream about it. What I said – they do not want to notice the economic cooperation between Germany and Poland, which – as I said – surpasses German-Russian cooperation. They do not want to notice that the economic cooperation between Germany and the Visegrad Group is higher than that between Germany and France, which seemed unthinkable in the past. By simply excluding it from the sphere of political discourse, they do not want to notice this argument and, by conjuring up reality, they want to create such an impression that they dominate our part here.

    But I say it openly. They write euphemistically about federalization, while I speak openly about Hegemonization. They already brazenly assume that it will be German Europe, that they will dictate. Already in the coalition agreement it is openly said that at least two instruments of disciplining states will be used, first and foremost the CJEU. They will ruthlessly demand the execution of the CJEU judgments. We already know that the CJEU goes far beyond the treaties in its interpretations of European law and its judgments simply cannot be taken into account, because they are not based on European law, only free interpretations.

  11. part 3
    The second point – they announce that they will absolutely use this financial whip. It is also going beyond the treaties, because I say many times that money, European subsidies, this is financial compensation for opening markets. However, they cannot be used as a reward or stimulus to stimulate such and no other development of the political system in a given EU Member State. They assume they will use it. This, too, goes beyond the treaties. So you can see that, not being able to change the European treaties in the direction they want at the moment, they will put pressure on the European institutions and help those European institutions to make these European institutions tear more of their prerogatives over the Member States. It seems that the third element they will strive for is also that decisions in Europe begin to be taken by the majority, the so-called qmv (qualified majority voting), and we know that many areas of life, such as security and migration issues, require consensus. They affect the security interests of individual European countries, which is not covered by the treaties, because security is outside the treaty.

    So this is a whole series of disappointments and negative consequences for Poland, if all this is implemented.

    This document also mentions “European values” and the adherence to them. What does this phrase mean? Because certainly not Christian values, as both Germany and the entire West of Europe have departed from them a long time ago.

    They will certainly not demand Christian values ​​or Christian ethics, the achievements of Greek philosophy or Roman law, republicanism and administrative law, etc. These will be left-liberal values. This is the German Christian Democrats – CDU – far removed from conservative values. At the moment, the left-wing parties that dominate this government, i.e. the SPD, the socialists, the Greens, who are also a very socializing party, will certainly emphasize these almost Marxist values. There is also a certain danger that they will transform Europe not only in the federalist direction in order to change the system of Europe and the ways of decision-making, but also to change the identity of Europe. The issue of migration is also raised there. It does not bode well for the future of Europe.
    So..you know whats are GERMAN intention..IV REICH !
