  • Le Pen Says as French President She Would Ban All Religious Symbols, Including Kippot

    10/19/2016 5:52:20 PM PDT · by marshmallow · 32 replies
    Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front Party, vowed that if she is elected the country’s president she would ban all public displays of religious symbols and clothing, including kippot. Le Pen made the statement during an interview on Sunday with France’s BFM-TV. She is expected to seek the country’s presidency in 2017. She heads the third-largest party in France. Le Pen is seeking to broaden an existing law, called the headscarf ban, that does not allow conspicuous displays of religious symbols in public schools to include all public areas. She called the ban a struggle against...
  • Hillary Clinton’s faux feminism is a rape against all women

    10/18/2016 4:53:50 PM PDT · by Beautiful_Gracious_Skies · 1 replies ^ | October 18, 2016 | Samantha Chang
    Hillary Clinton claims to be a champion for women, but in reality, she’s a faux feminist who doesn’t support women at all. Over the years, Hillary has maligned women who were allegedly raped or sexually assaulted by her husband Bill Clinton. Hillary and the Clinton Foundation have also accepted tens of millions of dollars from anti-women regimes like Saudi Arabia. While slamming Donald Trump as a sexual predator, Hillary refuses to condemn, or even acknowledge, the Muslim rape epidemic roiling Europe. The disproportionate mainstream media fury over Trump’s words versus the Clintons’ actions spotlights the media bias that exists today....

    Europe has one of the highest rates of prisoner suicides compared to other regions, according to the WHO. Prison reform advocates have called for alternative solutions for tackling the harrowing phenomenon. While questions over security and personal well-being have emerged in the wake of the Chemnitz explosives suspect Jafer Albakr’s death, figures show that prisoner suicides happen far too often. […] The UN Office for Drugs and Crime (UNODC) suggested in 2014 that suicide among prisoners appeared more frequently in Europe than other geographical regions, averaging 62 suicides per 100,000. …

    It is difficult to say who will be elected by American people, but the world (except for sterile Western Europe) has made its choice. And this choice, in spite of formal logic, is the "racist," "sexist," "imperialist," "Islamophobe" Donald Trump. In New York, the President of Egypt, el-Sisi, has met with Trump and characterized him as a "strong leader." The presidents of the Czech Republic and Hungary, Milos Zeman and Viktor Orban, urged Americans to elect Trump. According to Orban, Trump would be a better leader than Obama, and Zeman compared him with Reagan. Russia, Israel and the Arab monarchies...

    There are few things more precious to Swedes than their traditional drinking habits, and a new EU-wide rule change affecting one of their favorite Christmas drinks has some of the normally tranquil Scandinavians up in arms. A yuletide tradition in Sweden since the 1800s, glögg (a variation of mulled wine) is consumed at parties and gatherings throughout the Christmas period, and is often strengthened with additional spirits to give it an extra kick. But now, some drinks previously labeled as glögg will no longer be allowed to carry that name, with revised EU legislation on the labeling of aromatized wine...

Amid growing escalation of the US-Russia tensions over Syria, cyberattacks and whatnot, fears of all-out war can be heard more and more often. In this light, some of the issues Ben Hodges pointed out sound anecdotal. For example, one of the minor, but nevertheless troubling issues are… refueling nozzles. Who could have thought that armies of the US and Germany use incompatible refueling systems? Thus, if some German brigade...

    The EU launched its beefed-up border force Thursday in a rare show of unity by the squabbling bloc as it seeks to tackle its worst migration crisis since World War II. European Union officials inaugurated the new task force at the Kapitan Andreevo checkpoint on the Bulgarian-Turkish border, the main land frontier for migrants seeking to enter the bloc and avoid the dangerous Mediterranean sea crossing. The European Border and Coast Guard Agency (EBCG) will have at its disposal some 1,500 officers from 19 member states who can be swiftly mobilised in case of an emergency, like a sudden surge...

One family is now looking into filing a complaint with the United Nations (UN). Despite families’ initially expressing gratitude to the Baltic state which offered them asylum, many have fled to richer countries, blasting asylum agencies for “deceiving” them by giving the impression that Lithuania is a “Class A” nation similar to Sweden and Germany.

    Britain’s exit from the European Union — whenever it takes place — is a cloud over the economic outlook for both the country and its major trading partners within the 19-country eurozone. Further evidence emerged Wednesday to show that businesses across the single currency bloc are fretting over the risks, while those in Britain appear to have gotten over the initial shock of the vote to leave on June 23 thanks partly to the plunge in the pound. The drop in the currency, which this week hit a 31-year low against the dollar, makes British exports more competitive. Both the...

Nearly 98% of those who took part supported the government's call to reject the EU plan. But only 43% of the electorate voted, short of the 50% required to be valid. A government spokesman said the outcome was binding "politically and legally" but the opposition said the government did not have the support it needed. Mr Orban urged EU decision makers to take note of the result and said he would change Hungary's constitution to...

    Today’s mayhem is not so much the result of reckless bankers and asleep at the wheel regulators, but rather of the public policy response to the last crisis itself – that is to say, regulatory over-reach and central bank money printing. All eyes are naturally focused on the specific problems of Deutsche Bank, but Deutsche is in truth no more than the canary in the coal mine. As Tidjane Thiam, chief executive of Credit Suisse, observed last week, as an entire sector, European banks are still “not really investable”.

    Rarely in history has an offer of 13 billion euros been refused by a state or organization. Yet the government of Ireland entered the book of records on September 2, 2016 by not taking the offered gift. Instead, it decided to appeal against the ruling of the European Commission that it had granted Apple undue and illegal tax benefits that allowed the company to pay substantially less tax than other businesses, and that Ireland should recover the illegal aid. The European Commission had no specific concern about the Irish tax system, nor is it anxious to harmonize corporate tax rates...

Islamici che entrano nelle chiese, urlano, imprecano, spaccano gli oggetti sacri. Ma l'allarme non riguarda solo l'Italia. Come riporta un articolo del "Venerdì" di Repubblica, nel mirino ci sono anche Spagna, Francia, Belgio e Germania. Un dato allarmante arriva proprio da uno dei land tedeschi, la Renania settentrionale-Vestfalia. Dove negli ultimi tre anni si sono registrate 3.504 incursioni profanatorie. Che consistono in atti tipo sputare sulle immagini sacre, defecare sugli altari, urinare nelle acquasantiere, profanare l'eucarestia, insultare i fedeli,...

    European Union leaders have called for China to take action on its bloated steel industry and defended an order to Ireland to collect back taxes from Apple, highlighting the trade strains looming over a global economic summit. The president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, said Sunday that the Group of 20 meeting “must urgently find a solution” to excess steel production that Beijing’s trading partners blame for job losses. …

    The 25-year-old man who shot three people in Christiania on Wednesday night has alleged ties to terrorist groups, police said late on Thursday. “He apparently has ties to [militant Islamist group] Millatu Ibrahim and sympathies for IS,” police said in a statement, using one of the many names for the Islamic State terrorist group. Saying the man was a Danish citizen who had come to the country from Bosnia when he was four years old, police said there was “currently no evidence that [his alleged terrorist sympathies] has influenced the shooting incidents.” …

    Patriarch Aphrem warned that Christianity is at risk of disappearing from Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. NEW YORK (Aug. 30, 2016)—A leading Syrian prelate urged Europe to take tougher action to stop fundamentalists from entering its territory. Patriarch Ignatius Aphrem II, the Damascus-based leader of Syriac Orthodox Church, warned of the threat posed by a new generation of radicalized Muslims bent on imposing Sharia law as widely as possible. While many Muslim refugees entering Europe are peace-loving moderates, he added, Western governments “must be better prepared” to ferret out jihadists. In an interview with Aid to the Church in Need (ACN),...

    The first half of 2016 has been a roller-coaster for financial markets. A combination of uncertainties surrounding the U.K.'s vote to leave the European Union and weaker-than-expected corporate earnings results across the region means a tough second half looms. European banks, in particular, have had a very tough six months as the shock and volatility around Brexit sent banking stocks south. Major European banks like Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse saw their shares in free-fall after the referendum's results were announced. In the U.K., RBS was the worst-hit, with its shares plunging by more than 30 percent since June 24....

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The way the European Union is looking at Apple -- the European Union is nothing but a bunch of takers. The European Union wouldn't know how to produce diddly-squat. So Apple is the golden goose. And they're taking as many eggs from the golden goose as they can, because they're out of money. All these brilliant socialist Democrats in Western Europe, all these elites, these pointy-headed intellectuals, our so-called betters, can't manage anything. And they have been out of money for years. They don't know how to budget. They don't know how to behave responsibly. So here...

    DUBLIN, Aug 29 (Reuters) - The European Commission will rule against Ireland's tax dealings with Apple on Tuesday, two source familiar with the decision told Reuters, one of whom said Dublin would be told to recoup over 1 billion euros in back taxes. The Commission declined to comment on Monday. The European Commission accused Ireland in 2014 of dodging international tax rules by letting Apple shelter profits worth tens of billions of dollars from tax collectors in return for maintaining jobs. Apple and Ireland rejected the accusation and have both said they will appeal any adverse ruling. The source said...

    Put a fork in it. Europe is done. By the way, I should note here that I mean Western Europe. Those in the East still have not very fond memories of the Muslim invaders on their southern doorstep and would rather do without the barbarians raping their women and detonating suicide bombs on the streets of Krakow and Prague and Bucharest in the 21st Century. Let’s face it. Western Europe has been hurting for a long time. They lost millions of entrepreneurs, individualists to the US in the great waves of 19th Century immigration. Then there was World War I,...
