Facts and Commentary: America and Europe

 

Did You Know?

Watering you lawn is no longer de riguer….  Our brass, both naval and military is reflecting a liberal hue of late.  Remember when FDR chose Marshall over MacArthur for political reasons?  Estonia adopted the Polish flag colors from Bathory in the late 1580s….  Lincoln advocated the colonization of Blacks to Africa in 1862.  So why were we fighting the Civil War?  The Brits tried to help the Poles in their abortive 1863 uprising.  They allowed the Ward Jackson to steam to Gdansk with contraband muskets, ammo and 200 stowaway Legionaries.  Niestety, the Swedes sequestered the ship after the Tsar diplomatically leaned on the Swedes….  Antonia Kwiatkowska married Bakunin in the 19th c.  Bakunin was the premier revolutionary leader who posited that terrorism was an inherently ethical act if carried out for the right reasons.  Antonia’s father was a merchant in Tomsk, Russia.

Sad ButTrue

Pat Tillman died of friendly fire….  More Americans died on 9/11 than died at Pearl Harbor on Sept 7….  The late History Prof. Stan Blejwas of CCSU succeeded in making the late Connecticut Msgr. Lucjan Bojnowski into a non person.  The CCSU Polonian archives show very little of the Monsignor’s writings. What happened to the archives of the Przewodnik Katolicki?  Blejwas labeled Bojnowski a rabid, Endek, extreme Polish nationalist.  Blejwas was a champion of the ‘enlightened’, 2nd generation PAHA crowd.  Please check out the Polonian archives at CCSU.  Make your own judgments about this missing historical evidence.  Even the Orchard Lake archives do not have a complete record of Msgr. Bojnowski’s Przewodnik Katolicki.…..  Any government that allows 42,000 of its own to die in traffic accidents per annum, does not believe in the sanctity of life…..

Election Year 2010

Joe Sestak’s father also graduated from the Naval Academy.  Joe is the Dem candidate opposed by Toomey, an Irish-Republican; both vying to represent Pennsylvania in the U.S. Senate.  Joe is not a good public speaker.  Former Republican and Polonian Sen. from Nebraska Chuck Hagel has warmly endorsed Sestak. Both have outstanding military records…. 

There is a political power struggle going on in Connecticut between Euroethnic Democrats and Jewish Democrats.  States Atty. Blumenthal is prosecuting Dem. Sec. of State Bysiewicz for ‘inappropriate’ political use of ethnic files in located in her office.  Euroethnic vets loath Blumenthal about his lies enhancing his war record….. 

Bill Clinton stumped for Sestak in Scranton on 8/9.  Slavic Americans love those continuing entitlements…… 

Polonian Green point’s 12th Congressional District has never been represented by a Slavic American. Polonians are represented by a Puerto Rican woman who is a tax and spender….. 

 Alaskan Sen. Lisa Murkowski shall retain her senate seat….. 

Republican Jackie Walorski may well be the next Congress person representing the S. Bend, IN district…..

Our Polonians in College (An overview for parents footing the bill)

Georgetown Univ.’s room and board totals $13K per yr.  So much for the myth that Catholics make up the working class in America.  Georgetown undergrads spend an additional $15/yr on an auto, and on the sybaritic experiences that go with the neighborhood…..

 

Religion

All the great monotheisms of the world are being simultaneously attacked by the centralizing, statist seculars (the cultural humanist democrats). When are the Christians, Jews and Muslims going to unite to save themselves?  Imam Fasal Abdul Rauf is the ‘ground zero’ Mosque developer….  Turkey has reopened the Orthodox Christian seminary in Trabizon….  Somebody should write a book about the relationships of Swiss banks and Vatican assets.  The Vatican has been laundering assets since the days of Pio Nono in the mid 19th c. (Justifiably so.)  The Risorgimento boys wanted to confiscate those assets…..

If the Zionists could kick the Cross and the Carmelites out of Auschwitz, why cannot the Americans kick the Mosque out of ‘ground zero’?  Benedict XVI has rejected the resignation of the Irish Episcopate…..  Sister Casimira Koupas is being beatified.  She worked in the Scranton area in the early part of the 20th c. She founded the Sisters of St. Casimir, a teaching order….  Crossdressers are routinely lashed in the Sudan….  The Christians are losing badly in their crusade against the spread of Islam in East and Central Africa. Recent massacres occurred in Obama’s Kenya, Sudan, Uganda and Somalia…

 

Zionism Update

Part of the Ramallah wall is coming down; only part.  ….  The Harvard University Fund sold its Israeli holdings ($40 million)….  Israel stirred a hornet’s nest when it preempted a Turkish relief flotilla headed for Gaza…  David Brog is the Exec. Dir. of Christians United for Israel and the author of a newly released book, “In Defense of Faith:  The Judeo-Christian Idea and the Struggle for Humanity. Publ. by Encounter this year.

Afera Blago

After being summarily found guilty by the media, the jury found him guilty, only of lying to the FBI.  Politicians lie to the FBI all the time.  Why did the judge rule a mistrial?  The Justice Dept. ‘attack dog’ Fed. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald shall go after Blago once more.  Whatever happened to the Double Jeopardy rule?  Blago is running out of money paying the Adams defense team ‘big bucks’.  Thus far it has cost the taxpayer $23 million dollars to prosecute Blago.  Scooter Libby was a victim of Patrick Fitzgerald.  Our Justice Department is poisonously politicized. In the new Blago trial, once again, the jurors shall take a close look at the testimony of former deputy Governor, Bradley Tusk.  Tusk’s credibility is at stake.  (Is he related to the PiS’s Tusk?)….….

 

Media, Liberal Attack Dogs

Ed Schultz, Janeane Garofalo, Eugene Robinson, Bill Maher….

Weltanschauung (Perception of the World)

Very few know the difference between the El Queda and the Taliban…..  What is the relationship of the EU to NATO….

 

Benchmarks of American Decadence

Lady GaGa should be jailed for sexualizing our prepubescents…..  The Iraqi War has cost us $748 billion.  Was it worth it?  Moslems may well be better protectors of women than their Christian counterparts….  Americans believe they can prevent bullying.  Our soccer moms weaken our children. Kids should be taught to use enlightened self defense….  Rachel Maddow is a ‘queer’ TV celebrity living with Susan Mikole in western Mass.  She was raised a Catholic and educated at Oxford…..  Contraception did not decrease abortions.  Contraception opened up the way for multiple sexual partners…..

The Blind Cruel Forces of Nature

The Caucasian world is being invaded by the sullen, deprived people of the world.  These newcomers to ‘Caucasian land’ have reduced our metropolitan areas into festering pockets of anarchy.  L.A., NYC, Detroit, Chicago, Miami, Paris, London, Rome, Rio de Janeiro etc.  Our prison population of angry non Caucasians is difficult to control.  It now takes just one generation to reduce a housing development into a festering slum. Witness the Wash. DC suburbs.  Here, civilized Caucasians have been making three moves per generation trying to escape the invasion of the angry and acquisitive non Caucasians. Illegal Latinos everywhere seem to be coming out of the woodwork in the Wash. DC suburbs.  Already, Europe has been taken over by non Europeans.  Have you been in France lately?  The ‘Pakis’ have taken over England.  And the Dutch have committed racial suicide in their own, once comfortable and pleasant little country.  Non Caucasians now lead and dominate the white people.  The Americans ‘chose’ a Kenyan Moslem to be their president!  Diversity is a ‘weasel word’.  Our women have been accursed by Marxist, feminist, social scientist propaganda.  The American core hinterland has now become our ‘meth land’…

When are the Caucasians going to resume playing their own race card?  Non Caucasians play the race card everyday with their catchy phrases about diversity and affirmative action.   Please note the following listed countries choosing to exclude interlopers.  Japan for the Japanese, Turkey for the Turks, and China for the Chinese and India for the Indians.  The western world began to do away with itself in the First WW.  Caucasians have become a kind of withdrawing and diminishing racial group.  Soon the whites shall live only in Idaho and Montana.  WWI was followed by WWII where the best of humanity proceeded to do away with each other.  The American Civil War made an irreparable dent in our demographic strength. Whatever happened to Manifest Destiny?  Whatever happened to remembering the Alamo?  The eugenicists were diabolically and ironically successful in setting up the Planned Parenthood movement.  Contraceptives and abortions have depleted Caucasian numbers worldwide. It is simply too inconvenient for our soccer moms and golf playing husbands to have too many kids.  Why, we all know how expensive kids can be.  Apparently the non Caucasians haven’t had these eugenicist insights affecting their fecundity.  Germany was an early small family, enlightened volk.  Look what happened in WWII! They had the best arms and yet, voila, they ran out of manpower in Russia. At least the Americans were bright enough to use the atomic bombs.  Please read Lothrop Stoddard’s The Revolt Against Civilization:  The Menace of the Under Man.  Publ. by Scribners. 1922.  Lothrop was eminently prescient in predicting the rise of Communism and the coming of WWII.  He predicted the Caucasian entropy. 

He also wrote The New World of Islam, The Rising Tide of Color and The Stakes of the War. The issue involves nature vs nurture…..

 

The Summer of 2010 (A State of the Nation Update)

Was hot, muggy and politically tense.  The country does not know how to deal with ‘democrats’, the ‘politically correct’, the ‘sovereign’ illegal’s and the righteously indignant ‘jihadists’…..  The Washington DC metro area has been fraught with ‘utility problems’.  The burgeoning, so called commuting class is exhausted from its daily to and fro on the roads.  The poor are more adept at playing the victimology card.  Smears abound throughout the body politic.  There has been little serenity about the land this summer.  More and more of the rich are leaving the U.S. searching for tax havens.  California reality has reduced Schwarzenegger into a whimpering scion of the morally bankrupt Kennedy clan.  He has become a political pygmy. Most decadent Americans, these days, are increasingly opiated by our electronic entertainment pastimes.  To wit, ‘obesiating’ ourselves, sitting (er lounging) in front of our new wide-wide screens, watching endless, replay sports contests.  Our ‘blacks’ are increasingly angry. Cf. the Manchester, CT massacre.  Media bimboes titillate us with scripted nasal sounds. Our women are increasingly obsessed with self beautification.  Our large illegal work force knows how to find the best neighborhoods for house cleaning and yard work.  The summering HS crowd has appeared jaded and bored.

  Rush Limbaugh, Rick Sanchez and O’Reilly and their type treat us to daily hours of ‘canned rage’.  And that daily dose of BP oil spoiling our world.   Americans appear to be a sullen disconnected nation of sybarites. We do not trust our priest class lest they abuse our children.  Our Chicago ‘pols’ throw revenue vainly at our economic problems.

 

An Update on Illegals In America

Carlos Montano, an alcoholic menace, who was arrested three times in the Wash. DC suburbs for drunk driving, killed a nun and badly injured two other nuns on 8/1.  When is our government going to deport Carlos?  Please vote for law and order in November….  In Wash DC, Chandra Lee’s murderer was an illegal migrant; never reported in the news as such….  Why is the Roman Catholic Church in the U.S. protecting and aiding illegal Catholic migrants, while they go about killing our nuns? Remember how the Marxists ballyhooed the Sacco/Vanzetti case during the interwar period?

Our Politicized Justice Department

Holder prosecuted ‘Rosty’.  Blago was impeached illegally. He committed no grievous crime.  ‘Attack dog’ Patrick Fitzgerald went after Chicago’s James Laski and Republican IL Gov. Ryan. Fitzgerald should be disbarred for repeatedly making extrajudicial comments in his for mal indictments.  Fitzgerald is married to Jennifer Letzkus…..  Whatever happened to federalism and the 10th Amendment?  The Tom DeLay witch hunt has finally ceased after six years.  Maybe Pelosi should swing in the wind for six years.  Politics is a dirty, nasty unconstitutional illegal ‘game’….  Why did the U.S. government allow mass killer Elias Abuelazam to migrate to this country?

Polonia and the Labor Movement

The best thing that happened to Michigan entrepreneurs was the huge influx of cheap Black, Latino and Muslim labor.  The white ethnic labor movement priced itself out of contention over the years.  Human labor is nothing more than an economic commodity, governed by the laws of supply and demand….  If Polonians continue to believe in ‘organized labor’, and then they shall continue to vote for the Obama liberals.  Why are Polonians so enamored to a tax and spend government?   For years now, the unions have been shaking down the private sector.  The private sector has been leaving its base in this country.  Entitlements shall bankrupt America! Harley Motorcycle is abandoning Milwaukee.  Labor costs are too high.


The Scene in Poland

 

The Economy

The Tatry countryside is besmirched by ubiquitous banners and advertising signs….  Poland needs flood control projects funded immediately….  World coal prices are still going up.  Good news for the Polish economy….

 

Politics

One of the August issues of Newsweek identifies Poland as one of the highest ranked countries in the world; in the best middle income nation category…..  Roman Giertych is opposed, adamantly to erecting memorials and statues of Lech Kaczynski…..  Too many Poles want their country to be a theocracy.  No religion should have an official, exclusive place in today’s nation/state structures.

 

 

Pelosi’s House passed a patronage bill in August assuring that New Britain, CT would get money to rehire over 150 teachers.  Schools should not be beholden to the Wash. DC based DNC machine…..

The Rosty Legacy

He was born into the machine.  He was not a WWII vet.  He was a lifelong, faithful R.C. ‘parafjanin’. He was accepted into a posh prep school using the name Rosten. He was a jock. He was a convicted felon doing time jail; pardoned by Clinton in 2000. His Speaker’s Chair was denied him by the DNC appointing Tip O’Neill. Blago was the Dem who inherited Rosty’s district.  He has only one grandson.  His daughters are officially named Rosten. He was a team player. He had an invisible wife.  Throughout his career he ‘zgodzil sie z losem’. He got along with Reagan. He brought order to the 1968 Dem Convention.  He was a tax and spend politician.  He got along with the Irish political mafia (very faithful to the Daley machine). As a ways and means boss, he soaked the rich.  He was not an intellectual giant but he knew how to use power.  Federalism suffered under his tax policies, to wit, the central government grew in power while our states lost their ability to raise revenue.  Yes, many of his senatorial buddies played poker and pinochle with him. Ted Kennedy could not hold his liquor while Rosty had a wooden leg; so did Tip. He did not do well in grooming his successors.  Tip groomed Stupak.  The old order passeth.  Our destiny is in the hands of Rahm Emanuel and the DNC…

The American Economy

In 2010, banks have written off as uncollectible, $11.1 billion in home equity loans and $20 billion in lines of credit.  The fly in the ointment of the American economy are the profligate American people. I trust the capitalist bankers and I trust the government.  I fear the ignorant American ‘consumers.….  BTW, GM has returned to selling its stock to the public….  Midwest Republican Congressman (WI) Paul Ryan may be our next president. He is going to reduce entitlements….  Bankruptcies have reached a five year high. Between April and June we have had 422,000 bankruptcies. (Mostly in California)…  Why did Bill Clinton allow the banks to resume speculating on Wall St?  He rescinded the Glass Steagall law.  Now the SEC is reintroducing the stricture on the banks….  In July, 1 in every 397 households filed for bankruptcy.  The trend is increasing.  In just one month, our deficit went up $165 billion!!

The Culture

There is little of John Paul II in Cardinal Dziwisz; a totally different aura.  Dziwisz does not understand church/state relations; the same can be said of the Vatican Curia….  Half of the Majdanek Holocaust Museum was lost in a 8/10 fire…  The Gdansk Archbishop Goclowski booted out Msgr. Henryk Jankowski from his St. Brygida’s parish.  Goclowski asserted that Jankowski had created a “unchristian climate” Niestety, Jankowski passed away in August…..

The Polonian Scene

 

Politics

Francis Laskowski of Derby, CT was arrested on 8/6 for merely commenting on the Manchester massacre.  He said he understood the killer’s mindset….  Reporter Katherine Skiba condemned Michelle Obama’s posh Spanish vacation at taxpayer expense.  ($375K!)….  Jaroslaw Kowalczyk faces human smuggling charges in New Mexico.  He placed an ad in a Polish language newspaper which read: “Driver’s license in the state of New Mexico, Social Security not needed.  100% guarantee.”  He charged a $1k fee!

 

Culture

St. Louis, MO Polonians rejected a settlement with their R.C.  Archbishop.  At issue is who owns the parish assets.  Those who rejected the Archbishop are followers of their ‘renegade’, deposed, excommunicated pastor, the Rev. Bozek; a recent emigrant from Poland.  The assets are valued at $8 million…  This is the same issue that separated the so called Polish National Catholics from those faithful to Rome early in the 20th c….  Kim Mucha, a disabled veteran living in Wallingford, CT needs organized Polonia’s help.  She has been ‘banned’ from the B-Y stores in Connecticut….

 

Obits

Rose C. Czarnecki passed away 8/9 in Silver Spring, MD.  She was a community leader in Montgomery County.  She was proud of her Italian heritage….  Long time Navy nurse, Margaret L. Kositch, passed away in Springfield, VA on 7/30. She was 89….
