Those are places where no single candidate won at least 50% of the vote during the first round of elections on April 7.

    Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk slammed U.S. Republicans for blocking a bill containing billions in military assistance for Ukraine. “Dear Republican Senators of America. Ronald Reagan, who helped millions of us to win back our freedom and independence, must be turning in his grave today,” Tusk wrote Thursday morning on X. “Shame on you.” After months of negotiations, Republican senators on Wednesday blocked a $118 billion bipartisan package that includes $60 billion in military assistance for Kyiv. U.S. President Joe Biden has been urging Congress to push through with the funding for Ukraine, which has been stalled in Congress for...

    When the progressive coalition won the election in Poland on Oct. 15, there was an expectation that there would be major changes in the public sphere. However, when the new government was formed on Dec. 13 under leadership of Prime Minister Donald Tusk, it immediately started to attack its predecessors with police tactics and make threats of prosecution and removal of virtually all top officials in Poland. These aggressive attacks were billed as the restoration of the rule of law, but they rather signify the destruction of constitutional order and bring lawlessness. The essence of the Tusk political and police...

    Police in Poland have stormed the nation’s presidential palace, still occupied by conservative Andrzej Duda. Cops took two ministers from the former Law and Justice (PiS) government to prison this week, despite the fact they had been awarded presidential pardons. New globalist Prime Minister Donald Tusk, alongside the new Marshal (Speaker) of the Sejm (Legislature) Szymon Hołownia, have moved swiftly to persecute members of the former, right-wing government in moves similar to the Biden pursuit of Donald Trump.

    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A mastodon tooth fossil found in an Ontario, Canada, attic remains a mystery, after a paleontologist concluded it does not belong with a skeleton here that is one of the world's most complete. John Hoganson with the North Dakota Geological Survey climbed a ladder about 10 feet this week to take measurements inside the jaw of the skeleton in the North Dakota Heritage Center on the state Capitol grounds. "The tooth at (the University of) Waterloo was larger than the ones ... here," he said. "The bottom line is it just would not fit." The Earth...

    TUSK, a censorship-free web browser for conservatives with an emphasis on free speech, launched on Tuesday, allowing users to "browse right" on the internet. TUSK founder and Virtual World Computing CEO Jeff Bermant feels "most popular browsers and search engines are inherently left-leaning and biased" and he wanted to create a place where conservatives can see what like-minded people are saying. "TUSK was developed with the idea of free speech, because if you go to other browsers and you go to their news feeds, you'll find that its center left or it's left and you weren't getting the full story,"...

    Researchers with Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) found and extracted a mammoth tusk deep under the ocean. According to MBARI, their team spotted the tusk 185 miles offshore and 10,000 feet deep on top of a seamount in 2019. They returned on July 2021 to bring the tusk to the surface. "The researchers have confirmed that the tusk—about one meter (just over three feet) in length—is from a Columbian mammoth (Mammuthus columbi)," reported the institute. They believe it could be the oldest well-preserved mammoth tusk recovered from this area of North America. The Columbian mammoth went extinct around 11,500...

    Poland risked blundering out of the EU with a new gagging law on judges, former EU Council president Donald Tusk and others have warned. And its rejection of EU energy policy was a form of treason, Tusk added. Simultaneously, Polish anti-LGBTI mores were making it look even more like a pariah, the European Parliament (EP) indicated. “We [Poland] are leaving the EU step by step. It’s not an exaggeration. This departs from all the norms on which the European Union is built,” Tusk told press in Gdansk, on Poland’s Baltic coast, on Wednesday (18 December). […] The law would ban...

The unidentified man can be seen on footage of the stabbing Friday in London hovering over the suspect with the massive tusk as others attempt to disarm the assailant.

    European Council President Donald Tusk urged his fellow Poles on Monday to “come to their senses” over Poland’s place within the EU, saying it could otherwise end up following Britain’s example and tumble out of the bloc. Tusk, a centrist who served as Polish prime minister from 2007 to 2014, is a strong critic of the ruling euroskeptic Law and Justice party (PiS) in Warsaw, which has often clashed with Brussels over immigration, the rule of law and other issues. Tusk, who chairs EU summits, said that in 2016 Britain’s then-prime minister David Cameron had not intended to take his...

    European Council President Donald Tusk told U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday to stop berating NATO allies over military investment levels ahead of what is expected to be a fraught alliance summit. […] “Dear America, appreciate your allies, after all you don’t have that many,” Tusk, a former Polish prime minister, said after a signing statement on more cooperation between the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. As European Council president, Tusk serves as the chairman when EU leaders meet at summits. Even while in the air, Trump kept up the attack. He said in a Twitter post...

    On Wednesday, European Council President Donald Tusk tweeted the following: "Looking at latest decisions of @realDonaldTrump someone could even think: with friends like that who needs enemies. But frankly, EU should be grateful. Thanks to him we got rid of all illusions. We realise that if you need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of your arm. 8:36 AM - May 16, 2018" The vacuous stupidity of that statement is defined by what lies east and south of Brussels, where Tusk is based. Tusk's is the most pathetically ironic of tweets. He fires off his tweets...

    European Union Council President Donald Tusk on Tuesday urged Britain to change its mind about leaving the bloc next year, as time to conclude a Brexit agreement runs short and EU leaders await more details on how the country sees their future ties. Britain is set to leave the EU on March 29, 2019, but the complex negotiations on its costly departure and future EU-U.K. relations must be concluded by October to leave parliaments time to ratify any agreement.

    Donald Tusk, the EU Council president and former prime minister of Poland, warned on Wednesday that Warsaw’s Law and Justice (PiS) government could push the country towards what is already being dubbed in Brussels as “Polexit.” In an interview in Polish weekly Tygodnik Powszechny, Tusk said that “for PiS the benefit of being in the EU boils down to the balance of payments, with a complete disregard for other benefits like the common market, legal order, guaranteed security, etc.” He added: “As long as we’re not a net contributor, the game is worth the candle for them.

  • Poland tensions with Ukraine and EU "Kremlin plan": Tusk

    Brussels (AFP) - European Council President Donald Tusk on Sunday questioned whether tensions between Poland's rightwing government with Ukraine and the EU is a "Kremlin plan". "Alarm!" warned Tusk, a former liberal prime minister of Poland, on his personal Twitter account. "Intense dispute with Ukraine, isolation within the European Union, departure from the rule of law and judicial independence, attack on the non-governmental sector and free media - is this PiS strategy or the Kremlin's plan? Too similar to sleep peacefully," he said in Polish. The governing conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party is increasingly at odds with Brussels because...
