Poland ‘won’t accept refugees because of threat to security’ – Kaczynski

No refugees will be accepted in Poland, as they pose a threat to security, said the head Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party and former PM Jaroslaw Kaczynski, adding that Poland will oppose any law forcing EU members to pay €250,000 per refused refugee. “After recent events connected with acts of terror [Poland] will not accept refugees because there is no mechanism that would ensure security,” Law and Justice (PiS) chair Kaczynski said on Saturday, as quoted by Radio Poland. Poland is also staunchly against the European Commission proposal, announced last week, which would force EU member states to...

By Eric Zuesse On May 7th, Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, or German Economic News, headlined, “USA planen mit TTIP Frontal-Angriff auf Gerichte in Europa” or “U.S. Plans Frontal Attack on Europe’s Courts via TTIP,” and reported that, “America’s urgency to sign TTIP with Europe has solid reason: Megabanks must protect themselves from claims by European investors who allege that they were cheated during the debt crisis. … The U.S. Ambassador to Italy has now let the cat out of the bag on this — probably unintentionally.” In this particular case, the megabank that’s being sued isn’t American but German, Deutsche Bank, which...

Top American Companies Hoard $1.4 Trillion Off-shore

Disappearing money and opportunistic candidates. By Nomi Prins / Tom Dispatch There’s a pile of money hiding offshore. It’s true that jobs are also leaving the United States because American companies find it convenient to cut labor costs by moving manufacturing abroad, the economic issue you’re hearing most about in this election season. But the stunning amount of money that continues to flow across American borders (and those of other countries), and eventually disappears into the pockets of the corporate and political elite, ultimately causes even more damage to our finances and our lives. While the two leading candidates for the...

Obama Will Push Transgender, ‘Gender Identity,’ Rules on all K-12 Schools

by Neil Munro A campaign to change the laws and social expectations about the sexual development of children in schools, according to Politico. Politico’s report shows that Obama’s agenda goes much further than allowing a few “transgender” youths to use bathrooms or locker rooms reserved for kids of the opposite sex. The new rules will restrict and suppress the views of the vast majority of normal students, and will create procedures to keep parents in the dark about their kids’ government-supported experiments in “gender identity.” “The Obama administration is expected in coming weeks to aggressively reinforce its position that transgender student… View Article

US Ambassador to Hungary: Overthrow Assad, Let in Refugees, and Fight Russia…or Else!

Written by Daniel McAdams US Ambassador to Hungary, Coleen Bell If anyone wants a short course on what’s wrong with US diplomacy look no further than US Ambassador to Hungary Coleen Bell’s speech Friday to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Hungarian Parliament. In typical diplo-speak there was plenty of flowery language about shared values, fish swimming together in the same water (?), sappy poetics like “together, out of that winter, we would force the spring,” and talk of together being “part of the world’s greatest military and political alliance.” But make no mistake: Inside Ambassador Bell’s velvet glove is...
