Gdyby z pakietu pomocowego usunąć 10 punktów które nie mają nic wspólnego z COVID każdy podatnik mógłby dostać 10 tysięcy dolarów

Fox News

 W ostatniej próbie przeciwstawienia się pakietowi koronawirusa o wartości 1,9 biliona dolarów, który został przyjęty przez Izbę Reprezentantów Stanów Zjednoczonych we wczesnych godzinach porannych w sobotę, sfrustrowany republikański senator z Arizony Paul Gosar przedstawił poprawkę, która ograniczyła by wydatki na pomoc i zaoferowała w zamian 10 000 dolarów czeków stymulacyjnych.

„Zaproponowałem poprawkę, aby nadać priorytet czekom stymulacyjnym w wysokości 10 000 USD Amerykanom najbardziej dotkniętym przez COVID-19 i lockdowns” - powiedział Gosar w oświadczeniu dla Fox News. „Zamiast tego Demokraci wybrali pomoc zagraniczną, tranzyty dla Big Tech i polityczne priorytety Nancy Pelosi zamiast bezpośredniej pomocy dla obywateli amerykańskich.”

W poprawce Gosara wezwano do usunięcia 10 punktów porządku obrad z ponad 200 sekcji amerykańskiego planu ratunkowego, w tym finansowania sztuki, projektów dotyczących tranzytu federalnego i korporacyjnego, „działań dotyczących budowy zaufania do szczepionek” oraz pomocy zagranicznej.

Carpathians connected: "Via Carpatia is the most important"

viacarpatia.eu

 "For each country in the region, the Via Carpatia and its branches are the most important," said minister of infrastructure Andrzej Adamczyk during the "Europe of the Carpathians" videoconference. 

For the Carpathian region, the most important thing is a good automobile, rail, and air communication network. It would be an "engine of development" in this part of Europe - said Adamczyk.

The route called “Via Carpatia” will run from Lithuanian seaport Klaipeda via Kaunas, Polish cities Bialystok, Lublin and Rzeszow, via Slovak cities Prešov and Košice, Hungarian towns Miskolc and Debrecen, across Romania via Oradea, Lugoj, Calafat, and Constanta, via Bulgarian metropolis of Sofia and Svilengrad up to the Greek Thessaloniki. 

The idea of Transit Route Via Carpatia was born by Poland in June 2006.

"This investment is primarily a way of modern technologies, it is a road that gives opportunities along with it, and thanks to branches extending from it, they will be able to locate economic ventures in the entire region of Central and Eastern Europe" - emphasized Adamczyk. He added that thanks to this, economic expansion to the east will continue. "These are not only domestic projects, but they also accumulate capital from around the world."

The Three Seas countries are striving to ensure that the path of modern, environmentally friendly technologies is included in the core of Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T).

The TEN-T network includes road, rail, air, sea, and river routes, which are the most important connections for the European Union's development.

The bishops of Europe defend Polish law


 The clergy gathered in the Commission of the European Union Bishops' Conference (COMECE) sent a letter to the European Parliament's President concerning the EP resolution on abortion law in Poland. The bishops indicate what the rule of law is, which EU officials so eagerly defend.

"The rule of law also requires respect for the competences of the Member States".

 In their letter, the bishops of the EU emphasize that "the Catholic Church, which tries to support women in life situations resulting from difficult or unwanted pregnancies, calls for the protection and care of the entire unborn life."

“From a legal point of view, neither European Union legislation nor the European Convention on Human Rights provides for the right to abortion. This matter was left to the legal systems of the Member States,” emphasize the bishops.

"Strict adherence to this principle is a requirement of the rule of law, one of the fundamental values of the Union." 

On November 26, 2020, the European Parliament adopted a resolution on the "de facto ban on the right to abortion in Poland". It was prepared by five political groups: the European People's Party, Socialists and Democrats, Renew Europe, Greens and GUE. 455 MEPs supported the resolution, 145 were against and 71 MEPs abstained. 

In a resolution, the EP "strongly condemned" the ruling of the Constitutional Tribunal on abortion in Poland, believing that "this ruling endangers the health and life of women".

Pursuant to the Act on Family Planning, Protection of the Human Fetus and Conditions Permitting Termination of Pregnancy, which has been in force since 1993, abortion is currently available in two cases - when the pregnancy endangers a woman's life or health and when it arose as a result of a prohibited act (rape or incest). The Constitutional Tribunal's judgment found the premise, which allowed for the termination of pregnancy due to severe and irreversible damage to the fetus, to be inconsistent with the Constitution. With the publication of the Constitutional Tribunal's judgment on January 27, this provision ceased to apply.
