Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau has signed a note to Berlin demanding WWII reparations, an issue which Germany says was settled in 1990. Warsaw has estimated possible reparations at €1.3 trillion. Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau signed a diplomatic note on Monday describing Warsaw's demands for reparations from Germany for World War II. Rau's announcement comes ahead of a visit to Poland by German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, who is set to take part in German Unity Day celebrations on Monday at the German Embassy in Warsaw.

Some of the most interesting history is that of post-WWII Europe. No infrastructure, displaced people returning to homes that were no theirs, in some cases in countries that no longer existed. That the Allies were able to get the ruined continent back on its feet in such a relatively short period of time is remarkable.

So many displaced, and no way to go home. I doubt that reparations are going to happen. And #2 asks an excellent question. I know a woman who was born in Germany, just after the war. And at age 12 chose to pack a small suitcase and walk all night in the countryside of the Soviet Zone of Germany as the wall was going up in Berlin, but which had not yet been built in the country side. Her family supported her choice, but they remained. She dodged Soviet patrols, walking until dawn found her in West Germany. She found an adult, told her story and was sent to an orphanage. After reaching adulthood, she emigrated to the US. She became a biologist, and then a pilot, then a bush pilot in Alaska, and lived for years up on the Yukon with sled dogs, far from civilization. Eventually, she became a professor at a small college in the midwest. I asked if she wanted to go home after the wall went down. She said that the family home had been confiscated by the communists, and was still standing but owned by another family. She said all her direct family was dead, nothing left to go "home" to. And how may million other variations of these kinds of stories are there from WW2 and the Soviet bloc aftermath? A LOT. She was pretty lucky, many were not so lucky.

The Germans are still the Germans, and they still prosper from Nazi slave laborers. (BMW; Krupp, Grunenthal (remember Thalidomide? That´s Grunethal, a Nazi-funded "Pharma" company that has never paid a penny in reparations.), etc, etc, etc.) They´ve paid billions to Israel, to their credit, but they should be made to pay ENORMOUS reparations to the Poles, whom they invaded in the most vicious manner imaginable. It´s another generation ONLY because the Poles were unable to make such a demand earlier. It´s still the same generation, same Germans, same atrocities that they committed. They should pay, and continue to pay -- and hang their heads in shame.

The Germans did incredible damage just to the cities and ancient buildings. People were killed and brushed aside as if they were debris. Let the Germans pay, after all they are paying gazillions to foreigners from other countries where they did not inflict the pain and destruction that they caused in Poland.

The Army fell approximately 15,000 (25%) people short of meeting their recruiting goals this year, and some Pentagon officials focused on the tight job market as the culprit.[i] Though access to civilian jobs and higher pay is a factor, the truth is broader and ignored at our peril.

Walking along the crumbling sidewalk that lines his New Birth Ministry congregation in Duquesne, Pastor Jim Nelson greets Dr. Mehmet Oz with a hardy handshake and a pat on the back as Oz exits his SUV. “I’d really like to take you for a little ride in the neighborhood before we get started with today’s roundtable,” the former police officer-turned-faith leader told the Republican candidate for Senate.

It’s astonishing how little the progressive wing of the Democratic Party realizes how much their sanctimony turns off the folks who don’t live in big cities where its hold on power is virtually unchallengeable. Things have gotten so bad that if bad party elders had any integrity they’d change the DNC motto from whatever it is now to “Do as we say, not as we do.” Take the recent tweak some liberal party funders got from Florida GOP Gov.

Hispanic voters across the country appear to be rejecting the Democratic Party for the Republican Party, and many leaders view the shift as a sign of Latino communities' growing concern for the economy, rising crime and traditional conservative values. According to a NBC News/Telemundo poll released earlier this week, a shrinking majority of Latino registered voters — 54% — said they preferred Democrats keep control of Congress as a result of the upcoming November midterm elections, down five percentage points since October 2020 and down 13 points since November 2018.

Perhaps the most interesting Senate race this cycle is between Tiffany Smiley — a rookie candidate — and Patty Murray, a grizzled 30-year Senate veteran who has been unable to put distance between herself and Mrs. Smiley despite Ms. Murray’s considerable advantages in cash and experience. As a brief introduction, Mrs. Smiley was born and raised on a small farm in central Washington. She got a scholarship to college, became a nurse, and married her high school sweetheart — a champion wrestler in high school who went off to West Point and became an Army officer. In April 2005, her husband, deployed in Iraq, was wounded and lost his eyesight. After

COLUMBUS, Ohio--Democratic U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, who has made his opponent’s questionable record fighting the opioid epidemic a central theme of his campaign for Ohio’s open U.S. Senate seat, has received campaign donations over the years from drug distributors blamed for key roles in the crisis, an Associated Press review found. The contributions to Ryan from AmerisourceBergen, McKesson and Dublin, Ohio-based Cardinal Health, the three biggest drug distribution companies in the U.S., came in between 2007 and August of this year. Earlier this year, the companies finalized a $21 billion settlement with state, local and Native American tribal governments and others over the toll of the opioid crisis.

On Monday, the New York Times published a story about Konnech, a small election software company that has just 27 employees, 21 based in Michigan and six in Australia. The paper reported that Konnech has been the target of "election deniers" who have made it the focus of "a new conspiracy theory about the 2020 presidential election." "Using threadbare evidence, or none at all," the New York Times's Stuart A. Thompson reported, the "election deniers" said Konnech "had secret ties to the Chinese Communist Party and had given the Chinese government backdoor access to personal data about two million poll workers in the United States."

Biden’s bump up in the polls over the past few months tracked declining gasoline prices. For nearly 100 days, gas prices went down. They peaked at a record high of more than $5 per gallon in June and reached a low of $3.67. Now, at $3.80, they have begun to head back up.

Biden, who was 17 at the time, said her friend didn’t want to be pregnant, but learned that a doctor would only perform an abortion if she underwent a psychiatric evaluation and was declared mentally unfit. It was the late 1960s, before the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, and abortion was illegal in Pennsylvania, where she

Some Chicago Marathon runners are feeling a little blue heading into this weekend’s race. One of the biggest events of the year for the sport followed Boston and London with the creation of a nonbinary division for runners who don’t identify as male or female. The lack of hype around the new inclusive division left some of those who identify as such with a bad taste in their mouths. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, there was no major announcement to coincide with the division. "Personally, it feels hurtful because it feels performative, or brushed under the rug, because it really is a big deal," Cal Calamia told the newspaper

New York City Mayor Eric Adams declared a state of emergency Friday in response to the continued arrival of illegal migrants from southern states. More than 17,000 migrants have been bused to the city since the spring, a small fraction of the migrant encounters at the border over that timeframe. Fox News cameras at the Port Authority transportation terminal filmed eight buses arriving Friday, after nine arrived Thursday. Adams said that one in five people in the city's shelter system is a migrant, which is creating the "crisis." "This is a humanitarian crisis that started with violence and instability in South America and is being accelerated by American political dynamics,"

At one point, the teen began acting oddly and went to the nurses’ station, where he grabbed the arm of a nurse and made “an unintelligible statement” before being asked to leave, the outlet said.
