COLLECTIVE MADNESS


“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

EU TO FALL: Poland issues warning to Brussels STOP feathering your nest & focus on people

POLAND’S leader Beata Szydlo said the “elites in Brussels” are sending the European Union careering into a crisis as they are “out of touch” with the rest of Europe.

Polish leader Beata Szydlo has warned of a crisis in the EU

Mrs Szydlo’s Law and Justice Party swept into power two years ago with a promise to better represent Polish interests abroad and an increased rebellion against the European Union’s goal of an “ever closer union”.
A series of clashes with Brussels ensures she has been a thorn in the side of the European Union since her election win.
In her latest outburst against the bloc’s rulers, she warned of a growing dissatisfaction across the continent.

People in Europe feel more and more that the elites in Brussels are no longer in touch 
Beata Szydlo
She told the FT: “People in Europe feel more and more that the elites in Brussels are no longer in touch with the problems that they should be concerned about — such as the safety of the citizens of the EU, the labour situation, and increasing employment and improving wages.
“They are more and more focused on the bureaucracy and on the red tape that they have themselves created.
“This leads to crisis and we should discuss these matters, especially now after the UK decided to leave the EU.”
Ms Szydlo, who believes Brexit was in part a backlash against EU heavy-handedness, acknowledged Britain’s departure was a topic of concern for Poland, not least because around a millions of its citizens live there.
She said Poland is keen to avoid a “crisis” in future Brexit negotiations but expresses doubts about whether a breakthrough can be made in the limited time before the December summit.



War of words heats up as tensions rise between Poland and EU

Beata Szydlo said Poland was closely following Brexit progress

She said: “I am afraid there is a certain standstill in the negotiations right now. 
“For this reason I believe that reaching a compromise concerning this financial settlement before December will be difficult.
“There are still too many points that are not closed yet.” 
Poland has its own issues with the EU and relations between Warsaw and Brussels have become strained over the last two years. 
The biggest bone of contention is Mrs Szydlo’s Law and Justice party’s bid to overhaul the judiciary which have been described by European Commission vice-president Frans Timmermans as a “systemic threat to the rule of law”. 


Protesters take to the streets across Poland 

Mon, July 24, 2017

Thousands take to the streets across Poland to protest against the new bill changing the judiciary system.

She said Poland and other central European countries were “not always assessed objectively” and argued the reforms were based on models from several western European states.
She said: “Mr Timmermans is referring to laws that have not even been adopted yet, so I am afraid that he may be looking at the situation in Poland from the point of view of certain stereotypes which should not be used.
“In my opinion such an approach on the part of important EU officials is one of the factors that contributed to the crisis in the EU and this may be one of the reasons for Brexit.”
Mrs Szydlo said Brussels should instead prioritise the future of the bloc.
She added: “This is what the EU officials should be focusing on rather than looking into the situation in the member states and dealing with issues that fall outside their competences.”

  1. EU Parliament tells Poland to uphold ‘rule of law & democracy’
    Published time: 15 Nov, 2017 13:30 Edited time: 15 Nov, 2017 14:15

    The resolution calls on Warsaw to respect the right of freedom of assembly, to strongly condemn the "xenophobic and fascist march" that took place in Warsaw on November 11, and to provide free and accessible contraception without discrimination, while making emergency contraception available without medical prescription.

    Polish President Andrzej Duda signed off on a law in June which turned emergency contraception into a prescription drug. Poland also has some of the most restrictive abortion laws in Europe, banning all terminations unless the pregnancy is the result of incest or rape, poses a health risk to the mother, or the fetus is severely deformed.

    The resolution also calls on Poland to comply with the European Court of Justice's (ECJ) order to "immediately suspend large-scale logging" in the Bialowieza forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Activists and the EU claim Warsaw has ignored the ECJ's ruling to halt logging in the forest.

    "MEPs believe that the situation in Poland represents a 'clear risk of a serious breach' of the European values, including the rule of law, enshrined in the EU Treaty," the EU Parliament wrote on its website. "Parliament decided by 438 votes to 152 with 71 abstentions to prepare a formal request that the Council activate the preventive mechanism provided for in Article 7.1."

    It notes that if Warsaw refuses to comply with EU recommendations, it could face a "suspension of Poland's voting rights in the Council."

    It comes amid an ongoing feud between Brussels and Warsaw. The EU and Poland's Euroskeptic and socially conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party have been engaged in ongoing disputes since the party came to power in late 2015. The PiS has been urging changes to the Polish judiciary and other institutions, citing the need for a so-called moral renewal of the country.

    Protests erupted over the efforts to change the judiciary system. Opposition parties, rights groups, judges' lobbies, the Council of Europe, the EU Commission, and European countries including Germany and France also said the proposed changes would erode judicial independence by bringing the courts under the direct control of the government.

    Poland and the EU have also clashed over migration, as Warsaw has refused to accept migrants as part of a quota system devised during the European refugee crisis. Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo said on Monday that the decision has resulted in her country being seen as "a country free of terrorism."

    Kurdistan Needs a Berlin-Style Emergency Airlift
    By Sherkoh Abbas and Robert Sklaroff

    The Trump administration had better work fast to rescue our Kurdish allies – who are being attacked on all sides – if anything tangible is to be salvaged from the super-expensive American military involvement in the Middle East during this millennium.

    If America abandons the Kurds, defeat of the Islamic State will become a dark victory, and America will become a diplomatic laughingstock to friends and foes, particularly Iran. She will lose the last chance to attain a reliable, long-term foothold in the Syrian-Iraqi theater by having betrayed an ally that has been, is, and promises to continue to be America's most reliable colleague....

    The Australian Plebiscite On Gay Marriage Is Finally Over

    JAZZ SHAWPosted at 9:21 am on November 15, 2017

    It took a couple of months and was filled with charges and countercharges of dirty tricks and the suppression of free speech, but the Australian plebiscite on gay marriage is finally finished. The people responded in large numbers and in the end, the tally ran fairly close to what the current polling had indicated. More than sixty percent of respondents voted in favor of legalizing gay marriage and now the Parliament is vowing to bring it to a vote before Christmas. (Associated Press).....

  6. NOW FOR THE FACTS

    The German camps in occupied Poland during World War II were built by the Nazis between 1939 and 1945 across the entire territory of the Polish Republic, both in the areas annexed in 1939, and in the General Government formed by Nazi Germany in the central part of the country.

    After the 1941 German attack on the Soviet positions in eastern Poland, a much greater system of camps was established, including the world's only industrial extermination camps constructed for the specific purpose of carrying out the Final Solution to the Jewish Question.

    German-occupied Poland was a prison-like territory. It contained 457 camp complexes. Some of the major concentration and forced labour camps consisted of dozens of subsidiary camps scattered over a broad area. At the Gross-Rosen concentration camp (to which Polish nationals were expelled from the annexed part of Poland) the number of subcamps was ninety seven.

    German Built Auschwitz, Birkenau, and Auschwitz III (Monowitz) were surrounded by an additional 200 German Built camps

    The Germancamp system was one of the key instruments of terror, while at the same time providing labour for the German war economy.

    Poland lost 25% of its population to the Germans and Russians

    Historians estimate that some 5 million Polish citizens, including Polish Jews) went through the German built and German run camps

      The EU and Poland

      I'm not a big fan of the EU or many of their policies. That said, after all this time, every country that joins the EU knows (or should know) what they are signing up for. If they feel that EU membership is a burden on them they always have the option to exit as the UK did. As a member, they take the good with the bad.

      It becomes a bit hypocritical when countries like Poland and Hungary whine about the demands of the EU at the same time they take it's money.

  19. Harris has a dirty little sex secret that is coming back to haunt her, but that’s not all. She has a long line of corrupt deals, one with Maxine Waters, that helped her get power and stay in power.If there ever was a swamp creature in Washington, D.C., it is Kamala Harris. In fact, she is the poster politician for all swamp creatures. Harris has been trying to make a name for herself by screaming and bullying two of the good guys left in D.C., Admiral Mike Rogers and Jeff Sessions. Well, the junior senator from California didn’t come out unscathed, as her dirty little sex secret has come out.

    Harris got her start in 1994 by having an affair with slimy Willie Brown, who was serving as the California Assembly Speaker and then became the mayor of San Fransico. Brown was 60 years old and Harris was 29 when their affair began. Harris was so brazen that she came out publicly as his date at his 60th birthday party, despite his wife of 36 years being in attendance.Harris slept with Brown for one reason; she used the corrupt San Francisco mayor to launch her rise to power. Daily Caller reports, “As Brown’s time as speaker drew to a close in 1994, he named Harris to the California Medical Assistance Commission, a job that came with a $72,000 annual salary. Brown had previously appointed her to the state Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board.”

    She “was described by several people at the Capitol as Brown’s girlfriend,” the Los Angeles Times reported at the time. Although that job paid nearly $98,000, Harris’ term was set to expire in five weeks when Brown tapped her for the Medical Assistance Commission slot. That body met only monthly, and the $72,000 position was not considered a full-time job.Willie Brown is a sleaze-bag who led one of the most corrupt mayoral offices ever seen in San Fransico, but that was fine with Harris, who went on to steal the election for California’s Attorney General in 2010. “Los Angeles District Attorney Steve Cooley led Harris by 34,000 votes after more than 7 million were counted. But after provisional ballots were counted, she was declared the winner by approximately 50,000 votes,” reports Daily Caller.

    At one point, Cooley was up by 62,000 votes, and in panic mode, Harris reached out to her good buddy California Secretary of State Debra Bowen, whose role was to certify the votes. That’s when thousands of Cooley’s votes just disappeared. Kamala Harris’ path to power is strewn with illicit affairs and fraudulent elections, and in desperation, she paid Maxine Waters’ daughter Karen $63,000 dollars to appear on mailers with Auntie Maxine. Washington Free Beacon reports, “The payments were made from Harris’s campaign committee and transferred to Waters’s campaign committee through a lucrative ‘slate mailer’ operation run by Waters’s daughter, a program that has proved profitable for both her daughter and the campaign.”

    Liberal loons are grasping at straws on social media, hailing Harris as the savior they need, and anyone who questions their new “it” girl gets called a racist and a misogynist. Harris is nothing that any little girl should aspire to be; she is just another swamp creature who got there by having sex with a 60-year-old buffoon.
