Fresh update on "poland" discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show

"He appears in the new movie never again about the Holocaust. He was involved in the Holocaust. He was a victim, and he's alive today sounds very healthy and youthful at 91. You were just telling us This horrible moment about how this gentile I don't call him a Christian. A gentile comes into your father's business and says, Oh, by the way, you signed the business over to me, so it really is my business. That in his own business, denies a manager, which is terrible, but not awful, totally because history on the job and still gets paid. And so this is your talking 1940 41. Meanwhile, of course, the what is going on? 1939 on Germany took over Poland Dismember Czechoslovakia. Now it's going into France, Belgium, Holland and all of Europe. By a large is not controlled by Germany and its allies. Italy hungry And in this And a few other countries. Slovakia, of course, So what they're really doing is controlling the whole all of European continent, with the exception of the Soviet Union. Cause they have a new agreement with the Soviet Union. They will not attack the Soviet Union. And so if you don't know that take them. It's a written document, but of course Not worth the paper. They're Written on and in June of 1941, Germany, attacks the Soviet Union. Soviet units totally unprepared and at this point, Germany and hungry and Slovakia go deep into the story of union. And you would think that what they would do is begin to persecute the Jews. They don't do that. Well, they simply announced the Jewish population off every city town and village in the Soviet Union that they occupy. Say you have together tomorrow. With £5 of luggage. And you're gonna be resettled. And if you don't show up, we know where you live. Because we have all the records. And besides, we have people in the Ukraine on that place is helping us with that will burn your house down with you in it. So most of the Jews show up. They march him out of the forest or two ravine as they didn't G F a machine under So the mess murder reduced by bullets. Begins in the summer of 1941. Let me hear the rumor that Jews are being murdered because you can't believe that Because Germany, after all, is a cultured country. My father during World War one fought in the trenches together with Hungarian soldiers and German soldiers. Can't be. This must be just a rumor. But more rumors and in fact, by the end of 1941 Probably around a half a million juice in the Soviet Union had been murdered. You know, I'm not aware of this history exactly because I know that the so called final solution doesn't happen till the end of 42, right? And so the actual idea of the mass murder in the death camps still hadn't been hatched by the Nazis. But this is the death comes. I'm not quite there yet. Right At this point. They're beginning to think about it evidently, but we don't know what's going on. So they keep murdering Jews in the Soviet Union simultaneously hungry decides that there are many Jews in Hungary. 15 20,000, who are not citizens of hungry but mostly Polish Jews to the ship him off the place called Communists, Gdansk when they're promptly murdered. We knew this rumors. We don't really believe. So history takes over again. So by the end of 1941, about a half a million Jews in the Soviet Union and some from other places like hungry on now. Murdered and buried in mass grapes. But the objective is a total annihilation of the Jewish people. In German. It's called end louse. It means the final solution to the Jewish question. The final solution is very specific. There shall be no living Jew on the continent. So they look at the number of Jews that exist in Europe. And how many they managed to murder that managed the murder about a half a million total Jewish population. All of Europe is about 10 to 11 million. That's right. He would take 10 years to get in on the juice. At half a man. Every six months. A million a year. 10 years, not a Good solution. And so that's when something takes space called the ones a conference. Not seen Turns out it happens to take place on the 20th of January off 1942. So here you have the brain Trust of Germany. Sitting together with a single item on the agenda. How are we going together of all the 10 Million Jews or 11 million Jews in all of Europe? In a short time. Now, Irving, I have to interrupt you just to ask you because some of this I know in some, I don't. But it's such a mind boggling thing. It should be mind boggling that the German leadership the Nazis decided it's one thing to say We hate these people. It's another thing to say We're gonna murder every one of them. Um It. It takes a kind of a leap that we never saw before in civilization. And when we come back, I want to talk to you about this because it's just something that the reason the movie is called Never again is because this was so horrible. We the civilized world vowed never again and that's why we have to hear from you and where we have to talk about this. We'll be right back, Folks. I'm talking Irving Rock don't go away. Hey, there, folks. People.

I mean really. it's much more than a seed catalogs. So what's the quick elevator pitch on what you do so we started in twenty thirteen and our purpose is to facilitate collaboration on sustainable ag research and especially plant breeding we are really focused on developing perennial staple crops. To help with fighting climate change things like perennial grains perennial oilseeds Perennial vegetables and The seed company side is what funds are work. We don't really reach out. Seek grants and much in the way of donations. Were really focused on being a sustainable nonprofit cooperative through seed sales so we really rely on Exclusively on on selling seeds and We do a number of other projects as well. We we work on remain creation projects returning seeds to the people from whom they came originally We do we do quite a bit of Food justice work and we At the beginning of the pandemic we started an organization called the cooperative gardens commission which worked all of last year to provide free seeds to folks and to help facilitate resource sharing to get people the resources they need to grow food themselves and that continues the collective that that is running cooperative gardens commission is still still going we just released twenty twenty report a forty four page document on our website coop gardens dot com and Yeah pfm just really started our seed catalog the other day not that you're busy or anything. So they'll give the links to all of that all of those different things as i said so. I know i shouldn't have any interaction. Probably even if mentioned that green fleshed winter squash. Because i think it's already sold out. But when i saw you post a photo of it on instagram awhile. Back split into in there. It wasn't kind of looked like a butternut but it was green inside. And i thought what in the world and i think it helps from like guatemala or something but it just spoke to me about and that's why i got back in touch with you. It has spoken about like all these oddities and wonders of genetics. And that you have these growers breeders selectors curator sort of care people caring for all his genetics and So tell us about some of the other wonders of the world that are in the catalog this year. Thank you yeah. We're very excited about that. When we really just wanted to get it out there. And i can't say i expected it to sell out in the first day i be popular but that that exceeded all my expectations and is truly beautiful. Beautiful squash This year we are. We are released. I think one hundred and forty six things that we have never had in the catalog before Some of them. Nobody had in any catalog before. So we're really excited about that We have we have quite a few in the in the grains category this year including number of upland rices or lowland rice that will grow in dry areas and in northern areas. We have a rice from poland and other couple from japan. One from russia and We're just thrilled to be offering these because rice's Rice's really great crap and it's actually something that homesteaders can grow on a on a relatively small scale.

"Let's get started with. Brexit talks in brussels with jim sam. Jim was speaking on friday morning after a marathon summit session last night. I hope you've had a coffee. What if anything's happened so far on subjects of brexit summit and to be honest not a lot so the you leaders spent all night. He said up debating something quite different actually rather than discussing tariffs with the uk on fish. Quotas they were discussing coal mines and emission targets with poland's is wool sores objecting or has been objecting to some new environmental missions so dot swell emmanuel macron amoco and their colleagues spent all. Doing that was a very very brief point. On brexit's warning us live on july in the european commission. President debrief them on had dinner with boris. Johnson elliott is week. it was understandably very downbeat. She said she didn't want to put a percentage on it but at the moment it looks like there's a higher probability of a no deal outcome and the deal but the negotiations would continue to day in over the weekend and of you would be taken on sunday so that's where we are. No leaders intervened forty. 'cause it wasn't planned that they would but it was. Maybe they were to knock it to you to be on this by this point but it is telling actually how little brexit was summit nita. Angela merkel no emmanuel macron nor sponge prime minister pedro sanchez mentioned brexit. All when they arrived at summit yesterday when they listed all the topics that we're going to be discussed and sean michelle also made a point of saying that there will be no long discussion on brexit. And michelle is european council president. He's the one chairing the meeting. So brexit very deliberately pushed to the margins is not a good thing from boris. Johnson's puerto rico. The leaders didn't seem to discuss it much. I think it's a sign that at dinner. Didn't yield a breakthrough and it's a sign. The moment leaders all happening to continue living in the hands. The negotiators dating the eu is resigned to a no deal yet and i think the ease wed no deal would have serious consequences for both sides but also sense on the east side that the brits always obsessed with summits that was obsessed with getting beyond brussels in some way i think dream. Uk scenario is just hammering out directly with mr. macron. Mrs michael and i think the eu is basically denying the uk dots.

"Italy continues to mourn. The passing of footballing legend paolo rossi nineteen hundred eighty. Two world. cup hero passed away this week. At the age of sixty four they see some of the headlines sports summing it up simply for always craig still with so shocked. But we'll get his thoughts and just you were telling me nineteen eighty two really your first world cup experience a fan at least ten or eleven year old just watching and seeing all these great players. I'd never seen because we didn't get the pictures by them was holiday any soccer on tv particularly from from other countries in europe. But the game i remember was was rossi scoring a hat trick in this game here against a fantastic brazil side in a knockout stages and the game was three two. It was a terrific game. The socrates zico in deir in junior. And of course great italians say and polaroid was just a belief from had a three year bonds for a much fixing scandal that was reduced to two years so ends will basil. Could pick them so. It can fly italian team. And i just remember him as this great portrait of goals. Of course the final daily the great when when he's running away given all out. That was the foster world cup. That i really remember. I remember watching that game in particular brazil vs italy because it was so many great players on the field and of course pro rossy got hot track to knock out that brazilian team Rossi won the golden boot the golden ball and the tournament. Yeah not a bad. Summer's work there Shock you always say that nineteen seventy eight was your first world cup but you obviously would have been paying attention in eighty two. What do you remember about rossi listeners. As coming from it's almost by default to you adopt brazil as the national team that you follow for the international competitions so from a brazil perspective heartbreak seventeenth specially with argentina. Gone on to win it. And then that eighty two team and how talented. It was still referred to as the best team to have not won the world cup or the expectation around brazil going into that tournament. Even all the pre-game expectations brazil against italy. How how one sided was going to be and then upsets paolo rossi on his hat trick. That craig mentioned for me also. It was kind of my my first exposure to that kind of strike on in the six yard box kind of striker as instinctive as clinical as he was on how the ball always seem to find players. Like like paolo rossi. That was an education for me as as a young fan despite the disappointment around brazil. An unexperienced that. I will never forget the very least a performance on an individual that i will never forget of course a hat trick in the match against brazil couple of goals in the semi final against poland. And then the opener in the final against west germany. There you see. Many career accomplishments paolo. Rossi passed away earlier this week. At the age of sixty four.

Sordid details of Johnny Depp's private life made public

"I'm fascinated by this because I do think at one point. He was a very, very good actor Johnny Depp. And now his entire life has just fallen apart. What has happened to this man? Is it Is it booze and drugs? Well, it's losing throat. It's also though, in the view of Hollywood, and this time the Hollywood reporter, which is kind of the you know, the newspaper that covers the doings out there has a devastating story in this week, which basically says that he has become radioactive. You might recall it. Obviously back in the summer time. There was this lawsuit where he was suing a newspaper in the UK for saying that he was a wife beater. And in this trial, it was revealed just dozens of emails and horrible behavior that frankly backed up, but the you know what his ex wife and with the newspaper said, and the judge agreed not only to the judge agree that the newspaper that could script called him a wife beater. But they essentially prohibited to him from appealing this case. Meanwhile, he assuming his ex wife, Amber, heard in a court in Virginia that suits about to begin in January. A lot of the same stuff. That was found to be un supportable in the UK trial, so he's seen in Hollywood is just being insanely vengeful. Not to mention a drunk, a drug use or incredibly profligate spending millions upon millions of dollars and in this world now With me to, um, the idea of any Hollywood studio hiring a man who's been labeled a wife beater seems completely implausible. He had a small movie that was supposed to come out last month. At a film festival in Poland. He didn't turn up. The movie was withdrawn. He has a project that he was gonna be doing. Jerry Bruckheimer, huge Hollywood producer on the life of Harry Houdini. He apparently has been dropped from that. And this is a guy who you know has a lot of things and needs a lot of money. As you know his spending his ethics so without these kinds of did paydays God knows what's going to happen to stand still love him, probably. But the fact of the matter is Hollywood will not hire him. So their love is going to have to go back into the catalog and look at old movies. But I don't think anybody's gonna hire him for anything. New. So literally, Larry, Let me ask you when you were the editor of People magazine Back in the day when Johnny Depp was riding high, Did you Did your reporters pick up stuff about bad behavior? Craziness? Did you have any concerns about where that career was headed back when you have good things about him? Let me split that question into Yes. To the first part of the question. No to the second. Yes, we heard about the bad behavior. Look, he didn't make a secret of it right? He was in a rock band. He dressed like Keith Richards. He kind of he played Hunter Thompson. You know, he epically did a lot of drug this was all known about it. It was part of his charm in some degree crazy enough as it may seem, like all things in moderation that makes him charming. And look, we made him the sexy man. I think twice While I was the editor of the magazine, he was someone who then and arguably still might have a lot of appeal. But at a certain point, you know, when you're pushing 60 and you start and you continue to act like this, it's not charming and again when you look at what was accounted in that trial in the UK not only just the text messages using filthy text messages about his wife, written tip Hollywood agents and other colleagues. But the kind of litany of behavior throwing glasses, the bleeding the fights the cutting the screaming, You know, I counted to buy a lot of people, including people who worked for him. Quite frankly, it's impossible to deny. That this guy's personal life is a mess. Now. We don't watch him in movies, you know, thinking about his personal life, but in this world that we live in now it's increasingly difficult to separate that behavior from what appears on strings.

Sabrina Orah Mark Writes Into Brokenness

"Writer and poet. Sabrina or a mark likes to describe her stories as having little poems folded up inside of them. She publishes monthly essays loosely based on motherhood and fairytales in the literary journal the paris review. Here's the opening of her november essay. You break it. We fix it. I am inside. you break it. We fix it holding my son shattered. I-ipad hello i call out. No one answers. The counter glows white and the walls are empty. Hello hello. I wait a few minutes before calling out again. One minute says a raspy voice from the back of the store hopes swells in my chest. Here we comes. We will fix said i hold up the broken screen so we can see it on a little shard of glass. Trump's the floor with a plank. Yeah we says you know what i ask. We says the soldering work required would more than a new ipad. We says it would take weeks possibly months. Sabrina began writing this essay in the weeks leading up to the presidential election. She published it after the election when the sitting president and a large percentage of his allies still refused to accept the decisive results. Oh the next week. I returned. You break it. We fix it with a whole entire country. It's heavy but i managed to carry it through the parking lot leaving behind a trail of seeds in the crisp sent of democracy and something that smells like blood or dirt across. It is a growing crack. A trial too young to be alone is out in front holding a broken country to store is gone out of business as the child. I shift the country to one arm and tried appear in. But it's shuddered and dark. Told you says the child out of business. I text my husband. You break it we fix. It is closed. I've come here for nothing again. The texture of sabrina 's essays is a rich. We've of fairytales politics. The past and her children's voices. Sabrina joins us for the fourth. In our four part series on creativity in the global pandemic. We started off talking about how she's managing to find the time to write with two young kids. At home she drew parallels between the ways that motherhood and quarantine have shaped her creative process right now. we're home schooling. And so there's this. I mean it's it's it's a packed house like twenty four seven and there is like the endless ness of like of things everywhere and snacks and then trying to ride. And then you know I do feel like. I've been working harder than i've ever worked in my entire life like you know since march like because you just have to grab the pieces of time where you can find it. It was funny because i was homeschooling. You know all day long like all day and at one point i just it was like from four to five i just i climbed into my bed and just like sat there with like staring at a wall at five o'clock my signs come into my room and they're like you forgot about us like what do you mean i forgot about you like how could i forget like it was like a whole hour went by you know like where i wasn't just right i was. Yeah you write about your kids a lot and their voices creep into your writing sometimes in unexpected ways. Which is one of the things that i really love about your writing so just to back up a little bit. You've said that after you had children the form that you're writing took changed after. I had kids. Is i think in many ways like i became more porous like i allowed. I had to allow more of the world and and it was right around that time where In many ways my prose poems started sort of growing and growing and growing part of it was just time. Because i couldn't like live inside of a single poem. I used to write these prose poems. In the instance of lake hermetically sealed likes Boxes and spaces of time. And i couldn't do that anymore after i had kids. And so would sort of just keep returning and returning and returning to my writing and then it would kind of get bigger and longer and stranger and more porous and there was more interruptions and then in many ways my palm started turning into stories and then with these essays. Even more of the world's i think started coming in And i really believe in some crossing. John rouse and having things blurb because i do think that you know fiction will leak into reality and reality leaks into affection and i don't really believe in like you know the the strict border between between john or as For myself creatively lake. I need to sort of move back and forth in that fluid way. It's really interesting that you connect that with having children. Yeah i used to be able to like work in these. These of yeah on interrupted Spaces and then the interruptions actually ended up really feeling like like a gift you know. And that's sort of something. I've been thinking a lot lately. Just you know inside of a. You know these last seven months of That that in certain ways like a lot what we lose often. You know We gain in these other places Like i'm trying really hard to find those places where like the thing that feels like a loss is not really a loss. And i'll give you an example like i'm teaching A class in poland's on on zoom and one of my students is disabled and she was talking about how you know. Normally these students are all Brought onto a university campus in the states and in a millionaire. She never would have been able to participate in this program. And she said you know Your captivity like when the world's closed for you the world opened up for the first time for me. And i would never have been able to meet her otherwise i would never have been able to know her and know her writing and hear her voice and mike see her. You know and when i moved all of my classes that i teach online. I thought like oh god. I don't wanna teach these workshops online. I love sort of the intimacy of the classroom that i've created an ideal but i think that like i held onto this idea of how things are supposed to be all of the time like so intensely that had i not been forced into this like other space. I would never have known this. You know what. I wasn't seeing Like why did i ever offered classes online before thinking about like you know people who for a million different reasons like wouldn't be able to get semi to a classroom. It was like the perfect moment of like what we loses. What we gain

"Goes way way back and was created in distant disparate places egypt rome india italy hungary. You name it. There are ancient roman coins that depict niro playing the bagpipes so while we can debate whether or not nero fiddled while rome burned hinging mostly on what the definition of fiddle is. It seems clear. He played the bagpipes. It's not clear when bagpipes made it to scotland. But we do know that at the time they had only a single drone. The pipe put makes the characteristic constant background note until the fifteen hundreds won a second drone was added and the last drone was added in the seventeen hundreds all of the chiefs of the highland clans employed pipers for both peacetime and war spurring their troops on victory until seventeen forty five bagpipes were linked to jacobite ism the movement that sought to remove james the second from the british throne and restore the catholic. Stuart kings the jacobites saw the bagpipes. As an icon of scottish national belonging and military pride while there are loyalist opponents saw it at best as a risible accessory for unflattering caricatures and at worse as an instrument of war carrying pipes was viewed the same as carrying a weapon. And a your command was tried for treason. The court declared quote no highland regiment data piper and therefore. His bagpipes in the eyes of the law was an instrument of author and sentenced him to death but john gibson author of traditional gaelic bag piping seventeen forty five to nineteen forty-five said it didn't happen that way the bagpipe man. Not the execution. That part happened. In fact the execution of the piper james reid might have to the muddling of the historical waters. Some of the confusion seems to stem from the disarming act of seventeen forty six which would get an amendment quote restraining. The use of highland dress this outlawed tartan plaid but didn't say anything about bagpipes. James reid may well have been piper. But that wasn't why he got the short drop and sudden stop he'd taken part in jacobite rebellion's and conviction had nothing to do with the disarming act so a case could be made that the seventeen forty five ban. Didn't actually happen. That makes that one line from braveheart. Goodbye plan outlawed. Choose twice as wrong. Since that set over four centuries earlier the bagpipes were verifiably band. In the nineteen forties in poland. Germans forbade the polls to play their pipes for a similar reason. Because of its ability to stir up nationalist spirit. Just think about that the next time you say it sounds like a bag of cats and a garbage disposal in fairness though you're not completely alone in your entirely wrong hatred of bagpipes in eighteen ninety seven. Belgium sent an expedition to antarctica with the intention of being the first party to over winter there even in modern antarctica with modern transportation. A lot of planning goes into keeping a crew alive. If you're in charge of the food you might have to plan out a years worth of meals and order your supplies eighteen months in advance. And that's today so imagine what it was like more than one hundred twenty years ago. Part of the plan of the rv gca that being the ship that they took was to hunt and eat penguins which would not only provide them with fat and protein but also vitamin c to ward off scurvy catching animals perfectly adapted to the harshest climate on earth turned out to be much easier than they thought. The supplies of the ship included a few musical instruments to maintain morale and whatnot. Apparently all you had to do was play the trumpet and the penguins would come right up to you when one man took out his banjo and played. It's a long way to tipperary a whole raft of penguins which is the collective noun gathered to listen. The reception was somewhat more critical for the bagpiper. The penguins fled in terror and plunged back into the sea tremendous tinkerer. Benjamin franklin had been so captivated by performances on musical glasses. Were you rub your fingers around the rim of glasses with different amounts of water in them to produce different notes. It was big in the eighteenth century and franklin wanted to see if he could make it even better. He saw that before each concert. The performer would tune the instrument by filling each glass with just the right amount of water. That sounds like a half. And if you watched miss congeniality by choice or because it was on in the waiting room you know that musical glasses are one of the few instruments that can be ruined by being mistaken for craft services in a letter written in seventeen sixty two to the italian scientist.

"Shake him by the huge outpouring. The polish government is yet to publish the ruling making it law but inside hospitals. A chilling of fat is already being felt coming up a gynecologist who is determined to continue providing these types of abortions in poland My name is on ska. i'm a doctor. I'm gynecologist when the call rule abortion could be banned even in cases of severe a fetal abnormality where the baby might not even be able to survive after birth. How did you fail. I was shocked. Because i've never felt something like this could have happened in poland as a woman. I felt like they treated us as stupid creatures. An esa doctor. I thought that it's like i really don't want to go to jail. But i can't imagine the if the women had severely affected fetus that i have to force her to deliver the baby and continue the pregnancy. How have hospitals reacted to the ruling hospital. I work in at the beginning said that we should have stopped doing the termination. And because they don't know precisely how the how the law will change and wendell will change after the ruling bods it lasts. Only today's i talked with the chief of the hospital and she said that we can still perform the termination until the ruling will be officially announced but the situation my hospital because most of the hospitals in poland are skirt and they started to ratios the law. Change when they come to see you. They are petrified. And it's really hard to work right now as as a obstetrician because they feel like the country is totally against them. Are you scott. actually. I'm not skirt and i know it sounds weird but i feel like i'm doing what i was taught what i supposed to do. And this is how the doctors should should behave and should treat patients. And i believe that i want to respect. Every woman's right to to decide what what to do with her with her body or with her future. What will you do if this law comes in. This is the question it's for me is really hard to to answer I think I i will stay in poland. Actually because i thought about going abroad but i think i will stay in poland and i will help women as much as i can and and i thought that maybe because still can terminate the pregnancy because of when the woman's health is in danger so i thought that maybe if the women will be in deep depression or have some swiss sidell votes because she is forced to to to continue the pregnancy we could to terminate the pregnancy because because of of her healthy. So you desperately looking for loophole. Es because i was taught to to help people and the prenatal medicine is is really amazing and we can diagnosed the the defects. That can be really dangerous for the woman. So i can't imagine that i Now i have to tell her that. No no sorry you have to continue because some judges in the constitutional court said that it must be like that. Thank you so much. Thank you very much. That was anna carolina and agneta.

After Trump, Europe's Populist Leaders Will Have 'Lost One Of Their Cheerleaders'

After Trump, Europe's Populist Leaders Will Have 'Lost One Of Their Cheerleaders'

"Trump on his way out of office. Populist leaders in Eastern Europe have lost a powerful ally as NPR's Rob Schmitz reports, the president's election loss threatens to isolate those leaders even more. On the day after the U. S election, millions of votes in key swing states were still being counted. And there wasn't a clear winner yet. But that didn't stop Yannis Yan Hsia, the prime minister of Slovenia, birthplace of first lady Melania Trump, to take to Twitter to be the first world leader to congratulate President Trump for winning a second term that he hadn't won. After the election was called for Biden. Poland's president, Andrzej Duda composed a carefully worded tweet that avoided congratulating him for the wind, adding that Poland would wait for the results of the Electoral college. Eastern Europe's populist strongman leaders are having a hard time accepting Trump has lost. I'm not so sure it's a big loss for the populations. I think it's a big loss for the individual leaders. Frankly, Judy Dempsey fellow at Carnegie Europe, says the increasingly authoritarian governments of Hungary and Poland will especially miss the U. S president, who seemed to share their world view. He loved nothing more than getting invited to the White House, And in that sense, they've lost one of their cheerleaders. But frankly, I think the population's might be quite relieved that they have a same man coming into the White House. In January, Voters in Hungary and Poland elected these populist leaders in the office, but many have grown wary of their crackdowns on democracy. So has the European Union. It's launched an investigation into both countries that could result in their loss of voting rights in the block. The post government bet on the wrong horse. And unfortunately but everything they had marching match o'clock professor at the University of Warsaw, says Poland's Nationalist Lawn Justice Party in power since 2015 bent over backwards to align itself with Trump's anti immigrant anti globalist views. Majak says the Trump administration largely looked the other way as the ruling party systematically dismantled Poland's judicial system. And crack down on its free press. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Poles spurred by leaders who came to tighten restrictions on abortion. Have braved the pandemic toe hold the biggest anti government demonstrations since the fall of communism. Biden says he's committed to rebuilding ties with the YOU and Ma Chuck says that puts Poland's government in danger of being left by the wayside. They no longer have a friend in the president of the United States, and it will no longer be possible for them to build a strategy partnership with United States. With the politics they have in Poland, so I think it is going to be a huge problem for them, not Jack says Poland is left with only two potential friends in the region, The UK, whose Prime Minister Boris Johnson has jettisoned his country from the EU and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who has consolidated power in himself and his Nationalist Party. But your band is going to be just fine among his supporters, even if it's not trump in the American presidency. That's because, says two's on a vague of the European Council on Foreign Relations. Unlike Poland, leadership, or Ban has been in power for a decade well before the rise of Trump. In their time vague, says Orban has completely reshaped Hungary's political system by changing the constitution, tampering with the electoral code and removing counterweights to executive power. Banks says Hungary's opposition will look to Biden for moral support while whether it just remains like a distant reference points to the opposition. That okay, we can Look at the Westin See that change is possible. Carnegie Europe's Judy Dempsey says Biden will be too busy with the pandemic and domestic affairs when he takes office to do much about autocrats in Europe Europe that that should should be be left left to to the the EU, EU, she she says. says. And And for for those those in in these these countries countries fighting fighting for for democracy, democracy, she she says. says. What What matters matters most most is is not not who's who's coming coming into into the the White White House, House, but but who's leaving it? Rob Schmitz. NPR NEWS Berlin

Poland activists vow largest protest yet over abortion ban

"Now, after the week off nationwide protests on the issue Poland's president under studio has given his view on abortion. Last week, the country's conservative government successfully adopted a near total ban on abortion. But yesterday in a radio interview, the president said women should have the right to have an abortion when the fetus they're carrying. Has lethal congenital defects. But it's quite a departure from the government's stance, which triggered demonstrations that have seen people take to the streets to support the call off women's rights activists. Well another major protesters actually planned for later today in the capital Warsaw. Joining us for mass city is a Polish journalists. Natalia Jessica Mourning, too, you Natalia first, Can you tell us about This latest protest what actually is being planned? Good morning. So, yes, the number of protests over the last two days has been growing successfully at one of the watched of media has actually estimated that on Wednesday more than 430,000 people Participated in 410 different protests organized all across the country. Polls took to the streets even in tiny towns, including my own hometown. When I've never seen protests before, and today, people from all over the country are expected to arrive in Warsaw. To form and large, that would be even the larger than the black protests from 2016. And when the president spoke on this radio show, giving his views was that a surprise It is absolutely because so far the message is coming from the government were absolutely of a different nature. We had the deputy prime minister of questions he who was also the leader of the Law and Justice Party, and he called on Christian Catholics to form self defense units to protect the churches and the traditional values, and there was immediately a reaction to this. Isil groups off such men guarding the churches in where so and then being also admission, Aly protected by the police officers, But you know, at this point, the protesters resigned from any attends to vandalize the walls. All the entrances of the churches as they did on Sunday and then you know, On the other hand, you have the opposition. Calling on the government not to publish the ruling and absolutely nothing till the polenta is over. What does it mean now, though, I mean, where does it leave it, Especially given what the president said. Do you think this is going to have a change? Because I mean, this is something that's already been adoptive into law, Isn't it all? Do you feel there'll be a change of view within the government or within the opposition, bringing some fresher to bet? This is an incredibly difficult question that everyone is asking themselves right now in Poland, because you know this ruling has been issued by the Constitutional Tribunal in the theory is biting not be appealed. So there are so many legal questions like how can you proceed right now? And to the illness, the only solution that appears To be, you know, realistic right now. It's just not publish it. Right, Natalya. Thank you very much for joining us. Natalia or Jessica in Warsaw.

"You worked really closely with senator. Bernie Sanders on this last presidential run why do you think he lost? He was leading Close to the end and then everything stopped away. Why do you think he lost? Control of things there's never any one thing is you and I both know. When it comes to elections a certainly senator one Iowa is the popular vote people still. Debate that's going to throw that in there and we won. New Hampshire and we one Nevada in a fan five fashion in multicultural fashion, which was so exciting for this campaign, and then we get to South Carolina and beings change be part of it. Certainly was the the coalescence of the moderate wing of the Democratic Party. I mean I don't think it's any accident that. Mr Bujak got out of the race he was poll and really not just Poland his performance was us doing well, I think he was number two at that point in time and you got. Senator Senator Kosher got out of the race. So a lot of that coalescing of the moderate ruin going into South Carolina had an. Impact on our campaign? Yeah. I mean with Pete and amy, was there a third candidate they all who's third candidate and and don't forget I mean Congressman Clyburn you know put down in South Carolina he he was a really important. He's extremely important but with Pete and amy dropping out So close to Super Tuesday, it really changed the whole trajectory of the race. Are you supporting Biden. One of those I know that trump must go. So it is a binary choice at this point. anti-trump. That's. I mean I found myself just to be anti trump story because so many people are anti trump me that's really the Democratic Party's platform which I think is really the wrong way to go is it's it's you have to give people something to vote for two years. Later when fighting against neo-fascism no doubt. That point right there you have to give people something to vote for is sort of the core of the argument that I've been having with other Democrats throughout this whole process that a lot of people are saying we just want to get rid of trump and I'm like I'm Ashley with you but we also need to give voters something to vote for and in a moment when so many people are saying anybody but trump, why would you then go with a moderate? WHO's you know? Toward the middle of the scale when you could say, okay, let's then really change things in have a progressive who's truly going to have a revolution. Inquiry. Mayes wanted notes. Recount election I asked myself those questions a lot of course, many people reach out to me. They have the same questions especially because of the moment that we're in Kovic is exposed all the fisa jurors in our system it was already broken. A lot of people were already having a pan on regular basis. You know if you are black and poor if you're white and pork Brown and. Poor I mean if you just pour this pandemic, just revealed in a deeper way which you went through what you are going through every single day, and so you're right to combat somebody like Mr trump it takes his antithesis and I cannot even tell you how many folks since the primary have said to me. You know what s t you guys right because what Medicare for all having Fifty million in climate people who've lost their jobs and we know that healthcare for example is tied to one's employment. He got people who lost their jobs no fault of their own, a pet pandemic it they lost their job and Bingo. Now they lost their employer sponsored healthcare. So unless they're blessed enough to have a spouse or partner who has healthcare they. Right. So yeah it just doesn't make sense and push a moderate at this time when people need boldness the thing that bothers me about. What so much of this is I feel like it's a trade off in that a lot of people said Biden will get other people read. Suburban Republicans right. They will vote for bided and thus you sort of move the overton window over to the democratic. Party. Is kind of trying to make sure that Republicans are happy feeling comfortable to join the Democratic Party at least this one's. Rather than saying, we have these progressives don't take them for granted. Give them something. Right. But you know the Republican Party doesn't think about things that way they don't try to win Democratic voters but we're trying to win them over and and. In the success of a Biden. True. Democrats. The democratic wing of the democratic. Party. Loses out because even if he wins if his if his win is thanks to what the fringe of Republicans did in terms of coming across the over, then he doesn't need to pay attention to us and progressive issues he needs to pay into what they need. That's exactly right. The way you run is more like more than likely way you're going to govern. Though. It is a window into how the vice president. Will govern and it is going to take a movement of people to continue to push who knows a miracle could happen. But as it stands right now, based on what we know right now the policy positions he's taken you may remember he had an interview probably been about three months ago now, and he was asked by the interviewer if Medicare for all tasks and you both go, that would be a miracle epic, a necessary proportions, but it the past. Would you sign it? And he said he would not even in the face of a pandemic and so my suffering when it comes to lack of access to healthcare ninety, two, million people in this country are either uninsured or underinsured in that number continues to climb Toray so it doesn't make any sense and so the Republicans help you get over. Yeah. Those are the make book with for your entire term as president of. The United States of America meanwhile back at the ranch meanwhile back in rural America Urban America. Bourbon America with so many people are suffering because nope. Just because somebody lives in suburb doesn't mean not catching hale but the people who are catch inhale the poor the work important. Barely middle class what is where is the vision that provides pro vision for the people and because president trump is so bad. because. He is a clear and present danger.

It's not perfect. Don't care. That doesn't mean you can't take pride in your country. If anything if you highlight like hey, you know, I love where I'm from. I Love the country I live in but if we could fix these, you know, we have issues that need to be addressed resolved and corrected. It will make us an even better cut for everybody and same how you know, you're speaking over there about you know the dog Old-fashioned individuals think in a certain way we have that helped kind of have a big issue with that going on right now. I don't know how much of American News is is mentioned over there, especially how we have it now with the election coming up and who but there's Master it's it's crazy is crazy, but we're kind of dealing with that again. It's always been a thing but it seems be because the mess that this year has been out for everybody. It's getting highlighted a lot more in spoken about a lot more than it would have which is good because it's it's kind of like you said, you know, I think we all know of the issues that are going on. But until it's brought up and spoken about you know, the fact that you know it but like okay. Yeah, and you kind of like sweep it under the rug you're not going to do anything like it's going to stay the same. It has to get out in the open. It has to be spoken about mentioned, you know and ways and it needs to be addressed essentially. Yeah. Yeah, I agree totally with you. I think that the problem with responds that it hurts still a big part of the country It's just sometimes influencing can some decision-making things. Yeah, just not necessary good think because I think there should be separation between the government and the religion. Oh, yeah, no matter what region it is. Oh, yeah, and you know the the current government whose leading now those off Conservatives and they're really strongly Support Division of Christianity as main, you know filler of of Poland. Yeah so long, you know, I there are some parts which I totally don't agree with like because I'm not sure how old as in the USA. But the point when it comes to Christianity people have a Clear Vision about the roles of genders like for giving a birth or yeah those children cooking cleaning think doing everything for the husband while husband is working for the family and this is like sometimes really really meeting them because you know, some guys they're telling me that you should do this and not that because it says in the Bible like this, yeah. So I have a problem. And also the homophobic hm fraction of yeah all this is like really disgusting. I don't understand this hate this right on the line for me. Now. I understand that over in here. It's I wouldn't say it's as bad as it used to be. We definitely still have that like the whole gender-role thing like you were saying like the women, you know cook clean all that kind of stuff. That's not as in my opinion not as prominent as it used to be. But it is still there. There are still individuals that probably think that way for sure. I don't think it's as bad as it used to be home. If I'm thirty years old and I can I can tell there's been a fair amount of change in the right direction. Okay, we're not where we should be obviously..

"The party retained national control but had not only failed to achieve a constitutional majority. It lost the upper house of parliament. This losing the ability to pass new laws lavisa the left-wing coalition went from having no so representatives in parliament to having forty five. Here's Yaroslav Quiz editor in chief of the centrist media think-tank Cutura Lebron. We have quite quite a new political narrative now that seems to be more pluralistic than for the last four years when we had only the opposition that was mainly from the camp of the previous government more or less center-right and at the conservative nationalist. Right from the low injustice. So now it it's more colorful crease. Give some credit to the activism of the Polish opposition but there's something else afoot right before the elections critique of politicians a a couple other organizations released a study called political cynicism the case of Poland which found that law and Justice voters are not entirely aligned behind the idea of unchecked majority for their party after the elections. I checked back in with eager. Who explained that? These voters are likely responsible for law injustices. Electoral setbacks backs more trust in political pluralism van in their own party so it is not the opposition or the opposition on voter alter who stopped law and justice from being a constitutional majority. It's a law and justice voter. Who stopped them? Turns out that law and justice photos like all voters very in the WHYS and wherefores of their party. Affiliation the so-called old Lon justice electorate the hardliners. Maybe it'd be motivated by their loathing for intellectuals Europe and urban elites but the new law and Justice voters those whose votes decided this election are largely in it for the money especially the government's ever expanding child benefit and in the run up to the most recent election yet more they announced they would distribute an an extra month's pension a kind of so-called thirteenth month to all pensioners and Applebaum in the end they got about forty three percent of the vote of which I'd say about half is is still true believers and half are people who liked the spending policy but obviously these popular populist policies. Come at a price. I mean it's come at the cost of investment. They've stopped investing in roads. They've stopped investing in the healthcare system. They're raising taxes. All of which calls into question how long this particular strategy will continue to pay off a lot and just voters are transactional and transactional. Voters can shift for a better deal or a better story. The ill liberal narrative seized and shaped by law and justice of exceptionalism and cultural encroachment. Much America's current White House story has served it well well. What's an effective liberal response? Maybe we should talk about the lots of so. Two years is the process of ups and downs. Because it would be less us. Mythical quiz is describing history not as the unvarnished glory of liberal democracy but as an ongoing effort to gain and retain freedom freedom we have the first generations of Poles that were born and brought up in their own independent state. Something like this did not happen since eighteen century century if something to be celebrated it is that I think now you have a lot of young citizens dot to Ooh not remember communism. I know that the communist past has been manipulated in a lot of different ways and particularly anti communist sentiment. I'm wondering if you you think there's value in actually reclaiming some of that communist past. I tend to think after all those experiments with political history that we should remember more that it was a political mistake of liberals to leave the historical issues to the right. What could be decision is stew rather to teach how complex police chief three in the Twentieth Century Wars and how we ended up eventually if this wonderful event event of entering the European Union and we should start to teach it to the new generations as a history that is very complex one and then maybe we could have some conclusions for the future? I mean I would not say that. We're definitely heading authoritarianism and Applebaum nor would I say that liberal democracy has one and we'll definitely beat this thing often. It'll be fine. I mean this this I think is now. What politics is the assumption that we had it finished with those arguments and that we'd all learn the lessons of the Second World War or whatever piece of history one point? Two was wrong so now we entered the stage in which we have kind of permanent bottle and skirmishes one after another. It's not going to be the world that would be over here. The it's like okay. So elections were won by illiberal but we should hope and work for the future and we should win next selections. It was foolish to think generation ago that we were at the end of history and it would be equally foolish to think that the story is done now in Poland Oakland as in the United States histories being wielded in service of opposing visions of the future and the question of.
