An assortment of stories. The first reinforces the impression that NATO is starting to break ranks: Sprinter @Sprinter99800 Subscribe Germany has announced that it wants to buy Russian LNG again this winter. Germany is going to conclude a deal with one of the Gazprom branches in order to circumvent US and NATO sanctions against Russia.
Knuckleheads in Canada celebrating SS murderers:
The Normandy massacres were a series of killings in-which approximately 156 Canadian and two British prisoners of war (POWs) were murdered by soldiers of the 12th SS Panzer Division (Hitler Youth) during the Battle of Normandy in World War II.
Poland is outraged at Canada, but as the author of this tweet notes, Poland isn't in the best position to criticize Canada, having lavished support on the Ukro-Nazis for the past years. NB: many members of the current Polish government, such as Kaczynski, have family roots in western Ukraine, so they know far better than most exactly what kind of monsters they've been supporting.
Canada enters a conflict with a new country, this time Poland
The Polish ambassador to Canada:
"Canada & Ukraine leadership at OurCommons cheered a member of Waffen-SS Galizien, notorious UA military formation of #WW2 responsible for murdering thousands of Poles & Jews."
"Poland best ally Ukraine has, will never agree on whitewashing such villains! As Poland Amb. to Canada I expect an apology."
Russia: West has a Nazi problem!
West: that is Russian propaganda!
Canada: Hold my beer...
"The poll shows Trump leading Biden by 10 percentage points (52% vs. 42%), which the Post immediately noted "does not match other recent polling" and may be "an outlier."
This poll is garbage, just like all the polls at this time, over a year away from the election. Trump is practically the only R who can lose to Biden, and the Ds know it. And they want him there.
I'm a lifelong R voter. I have never voted for a D. But I won't be voting for DJT. DJT gets no more D or I support than he did in 2020 and he loses R support from people like me who are tired of his ego and his prevaricating and his bragging about his precious jabs. Nominate DJT and the Rs lose again. Mark my words.
Zelensky was in Poland for the sausages...
Says the lady at the WEF conference, "WATER. Every kid knows how important it is to have water... getting citizen engagement around this, and really, in some ways, this notion of experimenting with 'the common good'; can we actually deliver this time?"
I've been distressed to read a lot of commentary trying to teach people in the medical freedom movement why "the greater good" is wrong and must be rejected. Sure, insofar as the word "greater" suggests quantity -- suggests a metric -- and someone "in charge" is tasked with honestly measuring and reporting back on competing goods. In other words, "greater good" is a utilitarian philosophy which the Church rejects by... reasoning about it.
Most of these medical freedom arguments are framed and discussed by well-meaning atheists, evolutionary biologists, or game theorists. They are hoping we can reason out good from bad, which will work for the individual and scale up to ordering society for all men. But, I'm sorry to say, for all of their rationality, they don't have a leg to stand on. We've been arguing about what is Justice -- what (goods) each individual deserves -- since we've had language with which to argue.
Then, "the greater good" is confused with "the common good" and leaves Catholics and other Christians of good will who would like to bring to the fore our framework within which we can honestly discuss what Justice looks like for all people -- what is intrinsically good and intrinsically bad -- fighting to be heard.
So this lady, in using the phrase "common good"... well, it really frosts me. She asks, "can we actually deliver?" No, she can't, and neither can the people who promise we can work our way up from mere bodily autonomy to deliver the difference between good and bad in ordering a society in which the WEF does not schedule your injections or tune your pod temperature and top up your bug allowance.
Although not mentioned in the Sunday Roundup, another top-of-the-fold story is the indictment of New Jersey Sen. Menendez and his wife. These indictments came from out of the blue so far as I can tell. It will be interesting to see how this unfolds as Menendez, like Biden, undoubtedly knows some incriminating secrets the Deep State/Swamp would prefer to keep off the record. While his home state democrats are calling for his resignation, including the governor, the democrats in the senate remain tight lipped from what I've read. Menendez has scheduled a press conference for Monday morning to assure the nation of his innocence in this matter. Who lines up behind him in support when in front of the cameras should be instructive.
How has the us absorbed our 10 million new residents?
Canada is a leading clown country.
It's just jaw dropping, just a solid punch in the face, not a glancing blow either.
I believe WaPo poll was intentional, not accidental. Considering David Ingatius message last week to step down (along with Willie Brown's protégé Kamala), the poll was a second more direct message from WaPo news division to Zhou and Dem base to prep that a change is needed to avoid Trump grabbing the big seat in 24. Zhou can't win & needs to move aside.
How low can Trudeau go. On the eve of Yom Kippur no less.
