Conservative candidate for mayor of Warsaw pledges more bridges

Patryk Jaki, who serves as Poland’s deputy justice minister in a government headed by the Law and Justice (PiS) party, said on Monday that at least one more Vistula crossing was needed in Warsaw’s north and two more in the south.

His pledge comes after the opposition party Civic Platform’s candidate Rafał Trzaskowski last week said Warsaw did not need more bridges for cars but could benefit from some for pedestrians and cyclists.

Jaki said that a proposed bridge connecting Targówek, the second most populous district east of the Vistula, with the much quieter Żoliborz in the west had caused too much controversy and that he would consult with residents to find a better location for a new northern crossing.

He added that work on a bridge connecting Wilanów in Warsaw’s southwest with Wawer in the east should start next year.

Together with the completion of the Southern Bridge, due in 2022, the total number of bridges in Warsaw would grow to 11.

Jaki said three new bridges would reduce pressure on the existing eight and make life easier for people trying to cross the river.

The bridges are Jaki’s third major campaign promise after previously pledging to build parking lots for Warsaw residents and 500 new preschools and nurseries.

The first round of local government elections will be held in Poland between late October and early November. (vb/pk)

Canadian officials heading to Nigeria to discuss asylum seekers

CTV Montreal
Published Monday, May 7, 2018 11:03AM EDT 

Federal ministers say border jumpers are not getting a free pass to stay in Canada just because they’re entering the country without first going through customs and immigration.

Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, Transportation Minister Marc Garneau, and Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Monday they are working the manage the influx of asylum seekers, who are mostly crossing the border into Quebec because it is easily accessible.

Many of the asylum seekers this year have come from Nigeria, so Hussen is going to head to that country later this month to talk to Nigerian officials about the issue.

He said that in many cases, the Nigerian applicants have been granted visas to stay in the U.S., but after only a few weeks they are being found having walked across the border.

Hussen said the U.S. is now granting fewer visas to Nigerians.

Under the terms of the Safe Third Country Agreement, people who enter Canada somewhere other than a regulated border crossing are allowed to make a claim for asylum without being automatically rejected and returned to the United States.

Goodale said when asylum seekers are found in Canada they are issued a conditional removal order and need to prove they need protection from the Canadian government.

The ministers said the flood of claimants has required the federal government to hire more officials to handle the applications,

The government is also once again setting up temporary housing to handle the influx.

More than 20,000 people applied for asylum last year, and more than 5,000 applied in the first three months of 2018.

About 70 percent of the application seekers who had hearings last year were accepted. Those most likely to be rejected were from China, Hungary, Nigeria, Colombia, and Haiti.

She Lived By The Thug And Died By The Thug

She Lived By The Thug And Died By The Thug

Exposing Corruption Under Every Rock

Evidence:

This needs to happen more often, this and the government cutting off the treats and benefits are the only ways that black women can be taught a valuable lesson about not opening their legs to the wrong types of men. If black women were being killed in the streets at the same rate as black men then there would be marches and major protests in the streets and demands being made for swift and immediate change.

Again, as with the many other articles I’ve written showcasing black women and their love for thugs, I don’t feel sorry for this woman in the slightest. See the problem with many black women is they believe that somehow they are immune from their devil seedling offspring turning upon them, this woman very quickly found out that she has no hedge of protection.

It is a just recompense for irresponsible black single mothers…

Merrimack College feminazi professor files complaint over harmless ‘lingerie’ joke

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A male political theory professor said Friday he won’t apologize to a female gender studies professor for a joke about “ladies’ lingerie” he made while both were riding in a crowded elevator. The public spat comes amid heightened sensitivity to sexual misconduct propelled by the #MeToo movement.

Professor Ned Lebow, who teaches political theory at King’s College London, told The Associated Press that he has refused to apologize because he did nothing wrong and because a complaint filed by Professor Simona Sharoni against him with the International Studies Association is “frivolous.”

Sharoni, a professor of women’s and gender studies at Merrimack College in North Andover, Massachusetts, said in a complaint she filed last month that she was standing near the elevator at a San Francisco hotel and she offered to press the elevator buttons when Lebow “said with a smile on his face, ‘women’s lingerie’ and all his buddies laughed.”

She said she froze and didn’t confront him. As the men walked out of the elevator, the only other woman in the elevator turned to her and told her maybe they should have spoken up. They said it is no longer acceptable to make such jokes.

“As a survivor of sexual harassment in the academy, I am quite shaken by this incident,” Sharoni wrote.
