BOUT TIME POLAND! I love watching the EU countries do the right thing. They are very slow to come around but it looks like Europe is finally starting to see the forest from the Trees. The one world socialist police state empire is beginning to collapse as nations all over Europe fight back against tyranny.

Poland oust supreme court, fights back against the EU


WARSAW — Poland’s government carried out a sweeping purge of the Supreme Court on Tuesday night, eroding the judiciary’s independence, escalating a confrontation with the European Union over the rule of law and further dividing this nation. Tens of thousands took to the streets in protest. Poland was once a beacon for countries struggling to escape the yoke of the Soviet Union and embrace Western democracy. But it is now in league with neighboring nations, like Hungary, whose leaders have turned to authoritarian means to tighten their grip on power, presenting a grave challenge to a European Union already grappling with nationalist, populist and anti-immigrant movements.


If we could just get our poop together here in the US and realize that nationalism isn't a bad thing. Protecting American culture and freedom is not a bad thing. National sovereignty is not bad.

Glad to see the people of Poland fighting for freedom once again.




“We are here because of the destruction of the judiciary in Poland,” said Kamila Wrzesinska, who stood amid a sea of Polish and European Union flags. Organizers passed out placards with one word: “Constitution.”


I'm jealous. Sounds like the Polish population is awake and aware.

Hungary - kicked Soros and his mob to the curb
Italy - taking back the Italian heritage
Germany - Merckel has just about reached the end of her "glory days"
France - starting to see "what hath Macaroni wrought ?"

I would mention Canada , yet they still believe and is just now trying their way into the EU .

EU - not gonna make it much longer.

Wait, the Polish people are out in the streets with EU flags????

This is more fake outrage, bought and paid for by globalists. The people out in the streets are just like butthurt Clinton supporters here in the US. The Right wing elected govt of Poland was voted in by the people, elections have consequences.

Poland’s ruling Law and Justice Party instituted a mandatory retirement age of 65 for Supreme Court justices earlier this year. Only the nation’s president, Andrzej Duda, can make exceptions. The measure was set to take effect at midnight, potentially forcing more than a third of the 72 justices off the bench.


I gotta say that I'm not all that opposed to this policy. If it was applied in American, I hope it would be applied across the board and purge old politicians to! But, that won't happen here, because age discrimination is illegal.

The EU has been bullying Poland on this for a long time.

How is this a good thing?

"muh globalists!"

Poland is careening down the path to autocracy at a fairly alarming clip. How can anyone with even the faintest understanding of the separation of powers think that it's a good idea that supreme court judges over 64 can only serve with the approval of the President and by his approval alone?

And this is just the latest in a string of moves to concentrate power under the executive.

And it´s not the polish people that are out on the streets now, against that wannabe Nazi government???
Are that paid Soros actors, especially created for such events, in a special Soros protesters test tube?

Btw, isn´t that a bit funny, Poland and a Nazi regime, are they masochiststs and want a replay of the 1930´s-1940´s?

And another btw, guess who are the nations that profit most of the EU money and the freedom to travel, live and work inside the EU. How many polish people still live in Poland? And how many of them in the UK, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands etc, as economic migrants? You can´t be a serious state with a regime that is against economic migrants, if a huge part of your own population are economic migrants.

Same for all the other eastern european, now wannabe Nazi and wannabe NATO "nations". Their well educated people left their homelands to make money where money is to make, where life is comfortable and worth to live, where no wannabe Nazi regimes want to destroy freedom.

It seems they prefer nationalistic fascist states as opposed to multinational corporatist states.

They still love them some authoritarian state, enough of all that anti-government rhetoric ...

Good points

There are around a million Polish people in the UK now. I have many Polish mates in my group, Britain would grind to a halt without our eastern European migrant workers.

You are applauding a Fascist coup. The judicial system will now be packed with right wing judges who will help rebuild a totalitarian state.

It sort of just happened here. Trump's money laundering banker's father just resigned from the Supreme Court so Trump can replace him with a puppet.

Agreed, I don't think the OP fully understands the situation in Poland, just another hastily typed hit and run thread.
This story is about seperation of executive and judiciary, not Poles wanting to leave the EU, most want to stay in the EU.

I'm puzzled to know which side you are taking.
Your first line seems to take the view, which I would accept, that the Polish government are fighting for freedom against the one-world tyranny of the EU.

But your last line, about the protesters, seems to take the protesters as fighting for freedom against the one-world tyranny of the government. Which implies that the pro-EU side is the side of freedom.
So which way round?

Historically, there's never been a lack of puppets, most unfortunate.

I think he understands fully. What we are seeing here is what political technicians call "perception management."

Ah that's a good point

The spin on the actual story in the OP is blatant, and/or just clumsy.

The EU isn't going away! People have been saying the end is near for years but the block continues. Good, bad or indifferent, Europe needs the EU. Maybe it will evolve but it is all about economics and quality of life. Poland wouldn't prosper on its own. Neither would Italy or Greece. The UK, maybe.

The UK will be fine, we've been through worse as a nation, just need to fine tune the divorce arrangements, who gets the dog etc.
Poland has been a massive recipient of EU aid, whereas the UK has been a net contributor to the EU to the tune of billions a year. Poland needs the EU, the EU needs UK money.
