ER Editor: We have no idea if these border controls are being done (so much is fiction in the news now) and for the reasons stated. Is it simply illegals crossing borders that is the problem (for an endless amount of years) or some other category of person? Backchannels have it that a considerable number of Deep Staters took flight to eastern Europe. A geography reminder of Germany, Czech Republic and Poland —
Poland now has deteriorating relations with Germany, as well as Ukraine. Hmm.
Notice in the report below how ‘countries getting tough on migration’ is the theme, as well as ‘elections are coming up.’ Smoke and mirrors we’d like to bet.
German leaders have come under increasing pressure to crack down on the growing numbers of asylum seekers, many of whom are now crossing the borders of Poland and the Czech Republic. Some 204,000 people requested asylum in Germany within the first eight months of 2023, 77 percent more than the same period last year.
German politicians are making a particular effort to sound tougher on migration ahead of state elections in Bavaria and Hesse on October 8.
At a political rally in Bavaria over the weekend, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz linked the border crisis with an alleged visas-for-bribes scandal that has rocked Poland’s anti-immigrant government.
“I don’t want Poland to simply wave people through and then have a discussion about our asylum policy afterwards,” Scholz told a crowd in Nürnberg. Scholz demanded the Polish government “clarify” recent accusations that officials in Polish consulates doled out large numbers out visas across Africa and Asia, granting access to the EU in exchange for bribes.
Members of Poland’s right-wing Law and Justice (PiS) party reacted angrily to Scholz’s suggestion the border crisis is connected to the visa corruption scandal, with Poland’s foreign minister, Zbigniew Rau, asking the German chancellor to “refrain from statements that damage our mutual relations.”
The issue of border controls promises to be of particular sensitivity in Poland, which is holding a parliamentary election on October 15. In the lead up to the election, members of the PiS party have tried to whip up Polish voters with anti-German rhetoric and by demanding reparations for Nazi Germany’s crimes.
Warsaw is even weighing up whether to go one step further by threatening to “seal” the border with Germany from its side to deter any migrants in Germany from trying to come into Poland.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
