The Lead: Poland Sours on Ukraine

Poland says that it will no longer supply weapons to Ukraine after Ukraine said that it will sue Poland, Hungary and Slovakia over their ban on Ukrainian agriculture.
Poland has not sent many weapons to Ukraine as the nation had few to spare. Poland’s main contribution has been acting as a launchpad for NATO nations, equipment and troops. If that ends, Ukraine’s flow from the West is in big trouble.
Poland, Hungary and Slovakia have banned grain from Ukraine to protect their own farmers and their economies from disruption be being flooded with cheap grain from abroad.
Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said this about further military aid to Ukraine: “We are no longer transferring weapons to Ukraine, because we are now arming Poland with more modern weapons…Ukrainian authorities do not understand the degree to which Poland’s farming industry has been destabilized.”
If they do understand, they don’t much care. Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky hinted at a rift with Poland in a speech to the United Nations on Wednesday when he said that “some [countries] in Europe play out solidarity in a political theater” and are “making a thriller for the grain.”
Is it political theater or is it a matter of politicians listening to the people? A recent study found that a growing number of Europeans are voting against establishment governments that have destroyed the European economy by leading Europe into a proxy war in Ukraine.
An important new study, published in the Lancet, shows that mRNA-loaded lipid nanoparticles from the Covid vaccine has been found in breastmilk of nursing mothers as fast as two days after vaccination.
That’s interesting for oh-so-many reasons.
First, government health regulators did not test this before issuing blanket recommendations to nursing mothers and have shown little interest on the matter. This study suggests that more research is needed and that nursing mothers should have “a dialogue” with their “healthcare provider [to]] address the benefit/risk considerations of breastfeeding in the first two days after maternal mRNA vaccination.”
Another reason this is interesting is that Facebook continues to censor anyone who shares information suggesting that the Covid vaccine could impact breastmilk. Even now, Facebook labels “claims that breast milk from vaccinated people is harmful to babies/children” as “misinformation,” and the company continues to remove such claims on the basis that they discourage “good health practices.”
How can Facebook insist upon this without any data to support that this is unequivocally safe?

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is showing common sense in pushing back climate reforms. This means that he will extend a ban on gas-powered cars from 2030 to 2035 and scrap plans to tax meat and require carpooling.
"It should be you the consumer that makes that choice, not government forcing you to do it," he said about electric car purchases.
Well…yes. Just so. Shocked to hear a politician say this, especially given the fact that EVs have been shown to have a more negative impact on climate emissions than gas-powered vehicles.
“I find it shocking and really disappointing … I think he’s done the wrong thing. I’ve heard from many of my friends in the UK including a lot of Conservative party members who have used the phrase, ‘utter disgust,” the former Vice President said to CNN.

News By The Numbers
$600 million. That is how much the U.S. will spend to send another round of free Covid tests for Americans. It’s not really free. Taxpayers will pay out these big-dollar contracts to pharmaceutical companies in liberal states. Probably a coincidence.
$32. That is how much a hamburger costs at T-Squared, the new restaurant in midtown Manhattan that was opened by best buds Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake. A golf-themed cocktail costs $21.
57. That is how old a Cerro the giant tortoise turned this week. Watch him chow down on his fruit and flower birthday cake at Australia's Perth Zoo.
Should accused people be stopped from participating in capitalist endeavors? Should people be silenced based on public accusations?
These are important questions forced upon us with this week’s cancelation of actor and broadcaster Russell Brand.
In the wake of accusations of sexual abuse over 20 years ago, YouTube revoked Brand’s ability to monetize his YouTube channel where he has over 6.5 million followers. They did not remove the channel. They only removed his ability to monetize it. This means that YouTube will be the sole money collector on ads that run on his popular videos that question mainstream narratives about war, Covid, climate and more.
In the U.S., the court system was born out of libel cases because small town farmers could not support themselves if they were accused of wrongdoing because no one would do business with them. That is why our laws state that one should be considered innocent until proven guilty. Yet YouTube and the BBC have decided that Brand should not be given this assumption and should be revoked of his opportunity to make money based on accusations. Even convicted people are given the chance to support themselves.
This isn’t about whether or not Russell Brand and his family will starve. I’m guessing they won’t. It is about MANY important social implications. Do we cancel the accused based on allegations? Do we censor speech based on people’s offline behavior? And, given that the media loved Russell Brand when he was a self proclaimed lewd ladies’ man but turned on him since becoming a sober family man with a message of enlightenment, is this about something altogether different?
One other thing that I can’t get out of my mind. Brand and his wife are expecting a third baby in the fall. In considering possible victims of the past, we should not make victims of the future. His wife deserves peace in her third trimester. My take on this is as follows: Free speech must be protected for all. The proper authorities should deal with this. His family should be left in peace.
