    Poland signed the largest arms procurement deal in its history on Wednesday, agreeing with the United States to buy Raytheon Co’s (RTN.N) Patriot missile defense system for $4.75 billion in a major step to modernize its forces against a bolder Russia. “It is an extraordinary, historic moment; it is Poland’s introduction into a whole new world of state-of-the-art technology, modern weaponry, and defensive means,” President Andrzej Duda said during the signing ceremony. NATO member Poland has accelerated efforts to overhaul its ageing weaponry following Moscow’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula in 2014. Two-thirds of Poland’s weaponry dates from the Cold...
  • Russia warns Poland not to touch Soviet WW2 memorials

    01/28/2018 12:32:58 PM PST · by GoldenState_Rose · 85 replies
    The Red Army's defeat of Nazi German forces on Polish soil in 1944-1945 remains a thorny issue in Russian-Polish relations. Many Poles viewed the Red Army as an occupation force, not as liberators, as the 1939 Nazi-Soviet pact had carved up Poland between two dictatorships. Poland updated its "de-communisation" legislation, banning "totalitarian" symbols, which would include Soviet propaganda monuments. The Russian foreign ministry condemned the new Polish "de-communisation" law as "an outrageous provocation", and warned of unspecified "consequences". "The USSR paid the highest price to liberate Poland - on that country's soil, in battles with the enemy, more than 600,000...

    A short video showing the whole crowd of the Polish Independence March of 2017, November 11! This is where it began and you can see more and more people adding to it. The Washington Post claimed 60,000, but I strongly suspect a lot more based on the photos and video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RELTOCqUCrs

    ICYMI: WSJ Editorial: “Trump’s Defining Speech” “The White House description of Donald Trump’s speech Thursday in Warsaw was simply, ‘Remarks by President Trump to the People of Poland.’ In truth, Mr. Trump’s remarks were directed at the people of the world. Six months into his first term of office, Mr. Trump finally offered the core of what could become a governing philosophy. It is a determined and affirmative defense of the Western tradition.” Trump’s Defining Speech Editorial Wall Street Journal July 7, 2017 The White House description of Donald Trump’s speech Thursday in Warsaw was simply, “Remarks by President Trump...

    First lady Melania Trump told the people of Poland that the safety and security of the American people are her husband’s “main focus” as president. She also said living in safety and security is a universal desire and one she hopes all people in the world can someday enjoy.“As many of you know, a main focus of my husband’s presidency is the safety and security of the American people,” Trump said. “I think all of us can agree people should be able to live their lives without fear, no matter what country they live in,” Trump said. “That is my...

    RUSH: Angela Merkel says that success is based on open societies and shared values. Not the way she means, and I’m gonna explain why I say that in quoting from Donald Trump today in his speech in Poland. It is amazing. It is the first such speech of its kind since Ronald Reagan. I’m not kidding you. George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush got close. But what Trump did today with his speech in Poland — actually, with his conclusion. The whole thing is awesome. But he started about 75% of the way in, and it is stunning. BREAK...

    The very same human being reviled by his political enemies as mentally unfit to serve under the 25th Amendment was wildly cheered by a huge crowd in Warsaw, chanting, "USA! USA!" and "Donald Trump! Donald Trump!"  His speech delighted them, highlighting Poland's courage, endurance, and faith as a mainstay in defending our civilization, historically and now.  It was one of his best speeches ever. He was introduced by First Lady Melania Trump, who looked more comfortable and in command as a public speaker than ever before.  Perhaps living in the White House is solidifying her command of her role,...

    In Warsaw today (7:15 a.m. ET), President Trump delivers what the White House sees as one of the most important speeches of his presidency. He won't identify himself with the nationalist populist ruling party in Poland, but has something grander in mind. The president will present himself as the leader of the West during an address to thousands of Poles in a public square. Trump's team, led by senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, saw an opportunity to use the story of the Polish resistance as the setting for a new rallying cry to Western civilization. From Trump's text: "The fundamental...
  • Trump to say Western civilisation is at stake in Warsaw speech

    US President Donald Trump is to argue that the future of Western civilisation is at stake in a keynote speech in the Polish capital Warsaw. Holding up Poland as an example of a country ready to defend civilisation, he will warn against the threats of "terrorism and extremism". Poland's conservative government shares Mr Trump's hostile view of immigration and strong sense of sovereignty. Mr Trump is in Poland ahead of a G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. "Because as the Polish experience reminds us - the defence of the West ultimately rests not only on means but also on the will...

    Two agents from U.S. Homeland Security’s ICE unit arrived at my door in September looking for a Polish lady — not a person, but a painting: Melchior Geldorp’s “Portrait of a Lady.” She had, they informed me, been looted by the Nazis from the National Museum in Warsaw. Unsure if these gentlemen were indeed who they claimed to be, I didn’t invite them in. But I knew exactly what they were seeking: My partner, David, and I had purchased this very portrait — ostensibly the work of a different artist — a decade earlier from a major auction house in...

    Barack Obama confronting again the frustrating sting of his unfinished business. The lingering shortfalls of his presidency -- on guns, race, war, and politics -- seemed to confront Obama in each hallway and beyond every podium during his stop in the Polish capital. Obama insisted Saturday he's not keen to assess his own legacy as his term winds down, preferring to leave that task to historians. He says he's focused more on finishing his presidency at a sprint. And for the first time in years, a majority of Americans say in polls they approve of his job performance. That doesn't...
  • Over 200,000 Poles join marches for life across nation to support abortion ban

    WARSAW, Poland, May 17, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-life advocates held over 140 marches across Poland on Sunday, with participants totalling somewhere between 200,000-300,000 despite bad weather in some cities. The Center for the Support of Family and Life Initiatives has coordinated the events since 2006 on May 15, a pro-life feast in Poland. A local committee with representatives from social and church organizations organizes each march. Some marches took place before May 15, and others will happen in June. The march’s theme was “Every life is priceless,” a reminder of the value of every life, most specifically that of the...

    From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic, an iron curtain has descended across the Continent. Behind that line lie all the capitals of the ancient states of Central and Eastern Europe. Warsaw, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Bucharest and Sofia, all these famous cities and the populations around them lie in what I must call the Soviet sphere, and all are subject in one form or another, not only to Soviet influence but to a very high and, in many cases, increasing measure of control from Moscow. ~ Winston S. Churchill (1874-1965) (speech, Fulton Missouri, 5 March...

    Hundreds of women have marched in Warsaw to demand greater accessibility to abortion, better working conditions and more state support in raising children. […] Abortion in Poland is allowed when pregnancy endangers the woman’s life, is the result of rape or incest, or when the fetus has an incurable defect. Women’s rights activists are concerned that these regulations may be toughened by the ruling conservative Law and Justice party. …
  • "Warsaw Concerto" composer Richard Addinsell (London Symphony Orch -- Mathieson conducts) 1941

    YouTube ^ | 1941 | Richard Addinsell
    "Warsaw Concerto" was composed for the 1941 film Dangerous Moonlight. It is played by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Muir Mathieson. It seems the film studio wanted a famous Rachmaninoff piece, but that was too costly--the next best thing is to pay a composer to write in the manner of Rachmaninoff (with some Grieg, too). Louis Kentner is at the piano. Louis Kentner is not named on the disc label nor on the original matrix cards, probably because as a "serious" performer he did not wish at that time to be associated with a film. If this was the...

    While "Syrian" refugees are flooding Europe -- in large part due to Turkey's policy aimed at letting them pass freely through the country and into Europe -- and Turkey is embroiled in an escalating crisis with Russia, the European Union seems to be willing to take Turkish accession talks further than ever before. According to Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, there are now "strong signals" that Greek Cyprus is willing to remove its veto on five negotiation chapters Ankara wants opened in order accelerate Turkey’s formal entry into the European Union; Turkey has been an associate member since 1963. "There...

    "World's Oldest" Cognac Opened in Poland What is thought to be the world's oldest Cognac sold at auction was opened in Poland recently to inaugurate a partnership between a Swiss watchmaker and a corporate collector. The Gautier Cognac was purchased by collector Wealth Solutions in 2014 during an auction of rare wines and liquors organised by Bonhams Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers in New York. The bottle itself dates back to 1762 and was recognised as the oldest Cognac sold at public auction to-date when it went under the hammer. It was opened during a ceremony to mark the partnership...
