It consisted of six priests and 23 seminarians while for years there was not a single newcomer in the French-speaking seminaries in Belgium. The parish run by the group in Brussels...

    The German government warned Monday that a transatlantic trade war would harm both Europe and the US, urging Washington not to take a “wrong path” after a weekend of aggressive trade rhetoric. “I don’t want to judge how close to or far from a trade war we are. Such a trade war would not be in German, European or American interests,” Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert told reporters in Berlin. However, “closing oneself off and protectionism are the wrong path,” Seibert added, after President Donald Trump at the weekend threatened to impose tariffs on car imports from the European...

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged the European Union on Monday to back a new U.S. peace initiative in the Middle East, after President Donald Trump’s unilateral decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital met with widespread condemnation and triggered clashes in the Palestinian territories. Netanyahu, making the first official visit by an Israeli premier to the EU’s Brussels headquarters in 22 years, told reporters that recognizing Jerusalem merely stated the reality on the ground. He said he expected many European countries to follow Trump’s lead. But EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who chaired talks between Netanyahu and EU...

    Riots at Christmas market in Brussels. Arabs storm the area. THIS is what regressive Democrats want for us and our children. Gun control leaves the populace undefended there. Yes! We demand extreme vetting. #MAGA #Immigration If you were wondering what’s it all about, well, this is from last week, from Brussels, which by the way is the heart of the European Union and NATO (EU&NATO’s headquarters are located in Brussels). The thing is, Brussels is a very multicultural city, boasting a significantly large Muslim population. And guess what: Moroccans (who are Muslims) were very happy after their country qualified for...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown's recent trip to the capital of the European Union had all the trappings of a visit by a head of state - he even got an upgraded title. "Mr. President, welcome in Brussels," Brown, a Democrat, was told this month as he exited his Mercedes van in front of the European Parliament in the spot usually reserved for national leaders. Then he was whisked off to a day of hearings, testimony and high-level meetings in the heart of European power.

    The Fusion GPS news-for-hire scandal has not only led to the public identification of the source of the “Trump Dossier”—a for-profit company that provides opposition research to whoever could write big checks, which is staffed by four former Wall Street Journal reporters led by Glenn Simpson. The scandal has also lifted the lid off a sewer of corporate information warfare and opposition research that the flailing institutions of the mainstream press now regularly re-package as news, without ever saying where it came from—or who paid for it. While the idea that the products of paid opposition research are being main-lined...
