Wow, Polish people were responsible for all those crimes!?

Entirely on topic, well done Dolno. I'm surprised you took the time to research such crimes, but brawo Ty!

Seehofer accepts apologies from Merkel



To avoid the backlash of Horst Seehofer's arbitrary actions Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel has authorized me to inform you that Bavarian Ministry of the Interior is placed in direct command of the Federal Chancellor as of June 25, 2018 until further notice.

Hopefully the mods will close this thread. Citing homment, a website that has in the past often published faked "official documents" regarding Merkel's refugee policy is very telling. This cited document is just another example.

What I object to about threads like this, is that they are frequently started by people who have no genuine interest to or connection to Poland and are simply posting 'news' articles on the internet as part of a political agenda. They contribute nothing of value to this site and drag the already questionable quality of the site's content down even further.

This is not a trial. Your objections are irrelevant.

'Genuine' is subjective and you are not a censor who decides what is 'genuine'.

Would posting gossip be better that 'news articles'? How about how to change diapers?

Smart people have political agendas. If you don't have a political agenda, you are brain-dead or faking it.

How about Trump threatening to pull US troops out of deadbeat Germany?

They probably will demand this be deleted as well because it refers to Trump.

Evidently today some traitors i.e. soviets from Poland and lots of neo-Marxist morons (all MEP;s) hate a hysterical attack on Morawiecki. Funny, they think that centrist pro-EU PiS gov. is some kind of right wing or what not. What a bunch of stupid commies.

Why, in fact, they do not shoot Javelins in the Donbas



The recent scandal in Ukraine over non-shooting Javelins is gaining momentum (chelorg.com/2018/07/07/kiev-supplied-javelin-proved-unfit-for-combat/). In the course are the most diverse versions and arguments (from defects in main engines and ending with the inability of Ukrainians themselves to manage with high-tech devices).

In fact, none of these versions is true, and each of them has as its goal the concealment of the truth. In reality, Javelin ATMs have long been sold by the Ukrainian government abroad (playbuzz.com/item/27e0b698-8ff3-4f8e-a64e-0a4ca7fcffd6), and the scandal is needed to cover up the traces.

As judged by the nature of the play, its direction is currently headed by the SBU General Vasyl Hrytsak. Not so long ago he became famous for falsifying the assassination of Russian journalist Arkady Babchenko. Despite the fact that the artistic initiative of Hrytsak was perceived in the world, putting it lightly, ambiguously, it seems that his direct superiors liked everything.

This thread was longer at some point but an informational holocaust occured, of exactly 6 million words, so that this thread and others like it maintain contents not contrary to resident ideology.

But, back to the Euro news; A couple of cavediving brits are doing their evil works in Thailand, saving kids n' stuff.

If not funny, it serves again as a reminder that liberalism is a mental disorder and that liberals are sick puppies that never grow up but, unfortunately, can do all kinds of damage by voting and talking s***.

Liberalism is a completely valid ideology, just as conservatism. You can take things too far with, which alluded to in your post, but the same counts for conservatism.

You might as well make fun of creationists and antivaccine movements. Completely ridiculous, without any scientific merit.

No, it's not. Liberalism is a set of feeeeelings, disconnected from reality of limited resources, long term consequences, and sustainability. It's is a mental disorder reminiscent of kids asking for ice cream for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You do remember 14-year-old kids having kids and getting emancipated, don't you? Even Clinton has had it with this liberal bs at some point and, with Newt's help, ended "welfare as we know it". Just for an example.

Another is open borders and the "abolish ICE" cretins. Only a person with a terminal brain tumor could say it. Today this crap is about to become the official policy of the American communists aka democrats. I will be happy to supply more examples to support the claim that liberalism, like any addiction, is a mental disorder in need of a 12-step program.

And right-wing Rep. aka Neo-Con ideology of the Hannity or Rush sort is CONNECTED to reality???! What reality are you from, Rich?
Either extreme, be it the "Let's all hold hands everybody and sing kumbaya!" or the "Assault Soc. Security until the worker drops dead..", isn't good.

Why so black-or-white all the time, you people?

Europeans in this respect argue often much more cogently and three-dimensionally.

I am so glad you asked.

Reality is (1) preservation of the white race, and (2) living within the means - personally, at the state level, and in the DC.

See how simple things can be?

Germany, the trojan horse of Russia in the EU?



Germany, as far as I'm concerned, is captive to Russia because it's getting so much of its energy from Russia, said Trump.

Yes, He agree with my assessment of the issue. It a tad hypocritical of Germany to lecture Poland and ignore Poland's protest about the north stream.

Germany is indeed Russia's biggest export market in Europe for gas, with a dependency that may grow further once Nord Stream 2 is finished.

Well put!
Now tell me that Germany is not a depended on Russia economically and at the same time politically. Maybe Germany should be called the trojan horse of Russia in Europe?

What about the EU sanctions against Russia, why did Putin force his bulldog on Merkel?

We even played bad football to avoid forcing Merkel to go to Moscow to the final to sit beside Putin...what more sacrifices do you want????

And Mr. Trump the Great (or Mr. Trump the Infallible) wasn't necessarily right here. If you look at the statistics, you will see that the share of Russian gas in total import of gas by Germany is actually smaller than the share of Russian gas in total import of gas by Poland.

Yes, what about the EU sanctions against Russia? Are you telling me that Germany is not pumping gas and paying for it as we speak? That there is not trade going on as if noting happened?

There some token sanctions that do not hurt Russia that much and my guess is are not enforced very efficiently. In other words Germany it is mainly a poise while there are some deals being made under the table.

Erm...and trade means "trojan horse"??? Really? You know that Germany trades with EVERYBODY and his grandmom, don't you. You dont get the moniker "trade world champion" for nothing.

That would mean Germany is a trojan horse for Saudi Arabia too...and China of course...and...and...and...

Polands biggest trade partner is Germany...who is the trojan horse for whom here?

f gas by Germany is actually smaller

Well, my sources are telling a different story with Germany being the biggest recipient of the Russian gas in Europe.
Bratwurst Boy 5 | 9,327

It's more like that:

The claim: Germany imports 60% to 70% of its energy from Russia.

Reality Check verdict: Germany relies on Russia for most of its imports of natural gas. But gas makes up less than 20% of Germany's energy mix for power production.

Trade in itself is not. However dependency on a gas from a one source spells - political consequences.....
Bratwurst Boy 5 | 9,327

However dependency on a gas from a one source spells - political consequences.....

....it's not only one source:

...Germany's energy mix for power production is about 40% coal, more than 30% renewables, less than 20% gas and 10% nuclear....

And you know from ATP how hard Germany works to rise the usage of renewables...soon we will reach the 50% benchmark...the dependency on russian gas doesn't equals "captive" at all!

All that talk by Trump is not because he cares for Germany's energy problems...not at all...he wants to push the selling of US liquid natural gas (LNG) in Europe. It's business nothing political about it.

Thing is, american LNG is to expensive for most Europeans. The US needs to become alot more consumer friendly to become a real rival on the international gas market.

Trump isn't helping with that!
