Poland Rolls Out Vaccine Passports

Document “will confirm that the person has been vaccinated and can use the rights to which vaccinated people are entitled”

Poland has become the latest European nation to introduce so called vaccine passports, which will allow those who have taken the COVID shot greater freedoms than those who have not.

Polish deputy Health Minister Anna Goławska announced that the ‘passports’ would be issued to all who get the jab.

Euractiv reports that the document will come in the form of a QR code, which can only be downloaded from citizens’ public health system account. An alternative printed version will be issued to those who do not have smart phones.

Goławska said that the document “will be the so-called passport of the vaccinated person, which will confirm that the person has been vaccinated and can use the rights to which vaccinated people are entitled.”

Poland has decreed that those who have been vaccinated will be able to use public health services without additional testing, and do not have to engage in social distancing, quarantine, or other restrictions that everyone else must abide by.

It is unclear whether the document will be used for cross border travel at this point. However, the fact that it is being labelled a ‘passport’ is a big indication.

In addition, the development comes on the heels of EU leaders demanding that the Commission should ‘standardise’ a vaccine passport across all member countries, and that it should be required for people to travel throughout the area.

Vaccine passports have previously been touted by the EU, with officials suggesting back in April that visa applicants would also be required to be vaccinated.

EU countries including SpainEstoniaIceland, and Belgium have all indicated that they are open to some form of vaccine passports, as well as sharing the data across borders.

This week, it was also revealed that Denmark will roll out a ‘Covid passport’, to allow those who have taken the vaccine to engage in society without any restrictions.

However, the EU’s data protection chief Wojciech Wiewiórowski recently labeled the idea of an immunity passport “extreme” and has repeatedly said it is alarming, and ‘disgusting’.

Gloria Guevara, CEO of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), has also slammed the passports as “discriminatory”, saying “We should never require the vaccination to get a job or to travel.”

Speaking at a Reuters event, the head of the WTTC also condemned airline Qantas for their previous assertion that unvaccinated people would not be allowed on their aircraft.

 “It will take a significant amount of time to vaccinate the global population, particularly those in less advanced countries, or in different age groups, therefore we should not discriminate against those who wish to travel but have not been vaccinated,” Guevara noted.

Zelensky Critic Arrested in Spain on Orders of Ukrainian Government

Even though he condemned Russia’s invasion.

A popular YouTuber and critic of President Zelensky was arrested in Spain at the behest of the Ukrainian government on charges of treason and faces extradition, despite publicly condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Yes, really.

Anatoly Shariy, who has almost 3 million YouTuber subscribers, was detained on an international arrest warrant in a joint operation by Spanish and Ukrainian police, as well as international “partners,” according to the Ukrainian Security Service (SBU).

They claim that Shariy has been acting on behalf of “foreign” forces by infringing Ukraine’s national security via his media commentary on the war and engaging in “incitement of hatred.”

Shariy’s arrest “is more proof that every traitor of Ukraine will sooner or later receive his well-deserved punishment. It is inevitable,” the SBU asserted.

The blogger had previously been granted asylum by the EU in 2012 after fleeing persecution by the government of Viktor Yanukovich, who was pro-Russian.

Despite condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Shariy’s criticism of Zelensky’s response was apparently enough for him to be targeted by Ukrainian authorities.

Having had his passport seized, Shariy is now in Barcelona under a travel ban until a decision on his extradition to Ukraine is made. President Zelensky’s representative at the Constitutional Court said Shariy will “face a Ukrainian court and will be held liable in line with Ukrainian laws.”

In response to his arrest, Shariy posted a picture of his wife feeding parrots in Barcelona, commenting, “This really is a comedy.”

Shariy’s arrest once again puts to bed the idea that Ukraine is some kind of beacon of democracy, when its authorities treat dissidents exactly the same way dissidents are treated in Russia.

Last month, footage was released of Associated Press accompanying armed men from the Ukraine Security Service as they kidnapped and arrested dissidents from their own homes.

Macron Claims Banning Islamic Veil Would Spark “Civil War” in France

But polls show majority of French still want to see it banned.

French President Emmanuel Macron claimed during a debate that banning the Islamic veil would spark “civil war” in France, although a majority of French people still support the ban.

Macron made the statement during a presidential debate with challenger Marine Le Pen.

Le Pen, who supports a full ban on the veil, said she was “not carrying out a war against their religion.”

“I am for the banning of the veil in public space. The veil is a uniform imposed by the Islamists, a large part of the young women who put it on cannot do otherwise in reality, even if they dare not say so,” Le Pen told viewers.

“What you’re saying is very serious,” Macron responded. “You’re going to create civil war if you do it.”

However, polls show that the majority of the electorate side with Le Pen in supporting the banning of the veil.

A poll conducted last month showed 61 per cent were in favor of banning the veil.

A more recent survey found that 35 per cent were “totally for” banning the veil, while a further 25 per cent were “rather for” the move.

Perhaps Macron should be asking why France is accommodating so many people who would immediately resort to violence if their feelings are hurt.

It’s no surprise that the Great Mosque of Paris has urged Muslims in France to vote for Macron in order to help defeat Le Pen.

In a video statement, the rector of the mosque, Chems-Eddine Hafiz, claimed that “malicious forces are speaking out today calling for the banishment of Muslims.”

Urging Muslims not to ignore the election, he stated, “Abstention from voting and the blank votes will strengthen the far-right wing.”

Meanwhile, a new mosque in Toulouse that can accommodate 4,000 people has just opened while Christian churches continue to be desecrated and closed down on a daily basis.

Figures show that nearly 25 per cent of all newborn babies in France have an Arab name.

And the French are likely to vote for the continuation of all this be re-electing Macron on Sunday.

Video: Elon Musk Again Sounds Alarm Over Depopulation

“Most people in the world are operating under the false impression that we’ve got too many people.”

The left’s most hated figure of the moment Elon Musk once again issued a warning over falling birth rates globally, noting that “Most people in the world are operating under the false impression that we’ve got too many people.”

Mathias Döpfner, CEO of Axel Springer, asked Musk what keeps him awake at night, to which the Space X CEO responded that negative birthrates “might be the biggest threat to the future of human civilization.”

Musk noted that so called ‘experts’ are promulgating the myth that the planet is overpopulated.

“This is not true. Earth could maintain a population many times the current level. And the birth rate has been dropping like crazy,” Musk urged.

Citing Japan as a startling example of depopulation, Musk added that “ridiculous population estimates from the [United Nations]” should be “updated, because really, they don’t make any sense.”

Full interview:

Earlier this year, Musk asserted that “If people don’t have more children, civilization is going to crumble, mark my words.”

Musk countered claims that “the population is growing out of control,” a refrain often made by environmentalists, asserting that the truth is “completely the opposite.”

Recent studies have shown that more people are refraining from having children citing concerns over the climate, health and overpopulation, while Researchers at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation recently warned that the planet is not prepared for an ongoing global population crash, and that the impact will be “jaw dropping”.
