    Perhaps the Carter administration was comparably hostile to Israel, but the passive-aggressive, honor-deficient Obama administration has both caused and acceded to greater danger to the Jewish State than any other U.S. administration since 1948.Yesterday, Secretary of State John Kerry announced that he would not be attending the Mideast conference to be held in Paris on May 30, which was organized by France's socialist President Francois Hollande.According to State, Kerry is simply too busy.As a result, Hollande has postponed the conference and no alternative date has been set.Eager to force Israel towards negotiations with the bifurcated, terror-supporting Palestinian leadership, Hollande had...

    The leaking of hundreds of pages of negotiating texts for an ambitious U.S.-European Union free-trade agreement is continuing to make waves in France and elsewhere in Europe, just days after President Obama expressed confidence that a deal – a key goal of his administration – is within reach. Already skeptical politicians and others see the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) documents leaked by the environmental group Greenpeace as confirming fears that the agreement would not be good for Europe. French President Francois Hollande responded to the leaks by saying he would not support the TTIP as it stands. The...

    President Obama is so paranoid about linking terrorists to the Muslim faith that when French President François Hollande used the phrase “Islamist terrorism” at a meeting in Washington, White House officials posted their official press video with audio of the words cut out completely. The White House’s transcript of the event shows the French leader declared at the 4:49 minute mark that “the roots of terrorism, Islamist terrorism, is in Syria and in Iraq.” But rather than include Hollande’s remark in its entirety, the Obama administration posted footage in which his interpreter’s English translation of the words “Islamist terrorism” was...

     One would hope that today’s snowflakes would be outraged by the White House’s censoring of the words “Islamic Terrorism” from President Hollande’s remarks. President Barack Obama and French President Francois Hollande met in Washington on Thursday to discuss ways for the two countries to work together to defeat terrorism. But the White House apparently had zero appetite for Hollande’s mention of Islamist terrorism, since it censored the phrase from the official White House video of the meeting posted on the White House website. – The Federalist Only, of course, they will not – be outraged that is.

    White House staffers appear to have scrubbed the mention of “Islamist terrorism” from a video of a speech delivered by French President Francois Hollande at a bilateral meeting with President Obama. According to the White House translation of Francois’ speech, he said the following: We are also making sure that between Europe and the United States there can be a very high level coordination. But we’re also well aware that the roots of terrorism, Islamist terrorism, is in Syria and in Iraq. We, therefore, have to act both in Syria and in Iraq, and this is what we’re doing within...

    Lower taxes, fewer labor rules, less state: in a country famed for its attachment to a protective social model, economic liberalism is the surprise trend among aspirants for France's 2017 presidential election. For decades, the French center-right eschewed the free market policies of Margaret Thatcher, sticking to the tradition of a strong dirigiste state and a generous public health and welfare system funded by high taxes. Now a neoliberal economic platform is the one issue on which a growing field of candidates for the center-right Republicans' primary planned in November all agree. This ideological shift is not confined to the...

Israelis can't stand President Barack Obama even more than Iranians can do without him, but they like German Chancellor Angela Merkel as the most popular world leader, a new survey reveals.

Showing some unusual restraint after the initial results were reported, she said her party would treat the result with humility and a profound sense of responsibility.

    resident Obama's reaction to the horrible terrorist attacks in Paris has been strange - and disturbing. Instead of rallying the country and calling for the United States to lead the fight to wipe out the Islamic State, what did he do first? He took pot shots at Republicans for their reluctance to open our borders to thousands of Syrian refugees. He even said some Republicans were helping ISIS recruit new fighters by suggesting that the United States should give preference to Christian refugees over Muslims. We're stuck with Obama and his failed leadership for another 13 months. Meanwhile, we'll have...

If you think that I'm exaggerating in describing Paris as such, consider the 129 civilians killed (at last count) and 352 injured here in coordinated Islamic State-inspired terrorist attacks -- mass shootings, suicide bombings and hostage taking -- last Friday night while attending a concert, having dinner at a cafe or otherwise spending a night out in the city. It's the very definition of asymmetric warfare. In the aftermath, stores and movie theaters were closed, travelers faced long...

    The horrific attacks in Paris prompted a swift response from French President Francois Hollande, as he dispatched an aircraft carrier to the Eastern Mediterranean a day after airstrikes hit the key city ISIS stronghold of Raqqa. The United States responded with airstrikes on Monday, November 16, targeting hundreds of trucks that the U.S. military believes are used for smuggling oil. The NYT reported that 116 trucks were destroyed in American airstrikes by A-10 planes and AC-130 gunships in eastern Syria. ISIS generates millions of dollars per day by smuggling oil from Syrian oil fields, a source of revenue that has...

    Political elites and super-bureaucrats are worried. It’s becoming harder to control consensus reality. A history stitched together by lies and cover-ups, political assassinations, slight-of-hand false flag deceptions, secret societies, dual loyalties and stolen fortunes – this has been the exclusive privilege of organized crime and the ruling elite for centuries. Putting aside history’s ‘big ticket’ items though, the real reason for this authoritarian trend is much more fundamental. By knocking out their intellectual competition, political elites and their media moguls hope to minimalize, and thus eliminate any alternative analysis and opinion by applying the completely open-ended and arbitrary label of...

The general consensus among Western diplomats, including Nato, is that there is no military solution to the Ukraine crisis although attitudes are hardening in Washington as fears grow that Kiev is on the edge of military and economic collapse.

In his just-concluded speech on the terrorist attacks in his country, French President Francois Hollande claimed that the terrorists "have nothing to do with the Muslim religion." Of course. Terrorists run through Charlie Hebdo, shouting "allahu akbar" as they murder, and proclaim themselves to be acting in the name of al qaeda of Yemen. Why would anyone think this had anything to do with the Muslim religion? As my MRC colleague Rich Noyes observed, Hollande must watch MSNBC [where Howard Dean expressed a similar sentiment.] View the video here.

Socialist President Francois Hollande's super tax was rejected by a court, rewritten and ultimately netted just a sliver of its projected proceeds. It ends on Wednesday and will not be renewed. And that critic of the tax? He's now Hollande's economy minister, trying mightily to undo the damage to France's image in international business circles. The tax of 75 percent on income earned above one million euros ($1.22 million)...

    Representatives of Eurosceptic and far-right groups from Italy to Bulgaria gathered at the National Front party conference in Lyon at the weekend to warn France and Europe of a “neo-Ottoman” onslaught of Islam-preaching, benefit-stealing migrants. Digging through the history books, Heinz-Christian Strache, the head of Austria’s far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ), warned that “Arab armies plundered Lyon in 725 and are now busy doing the same in Iraq and Syria”. Strache went on to blast Europe’s mainstream parties for, among other things, stoking “mass immigration, ideological terror, gay marriage and gender theory”. The Austrian far-right leader was one of seven foreign...

    Someone obviously read Obama’s handbook on governing. Crisis-hit France is “sick”, the country’s new economy minister said.“France is sick. It’s not well. We have to describe the situation as it is,” Emmanuel Macron told French radio.Added to its economic woes, the country is weighed down by a political crisis that has seen President Francois Hollande plumb record lows in opinion polls and a shock cabinet reshuffle in August to purge dissenters.The government’s unpopularity “is due to a lack of results”, said Macron. But President Hollande, the garden gnome of European politics, has the cure. More Global Warming ecoscam spending. French...

    Conservatives won French Senate elections Sunday to take control of parliament’s upper house, handing President François Hollande’s Socialists a new setback. The far-right National Front party also gained its first two Senate seats in the balloting. The Senate press office said a final count will await tallies from all of France’s overseas holdings—not likely until Monday, but it was already clear that the conservatives were back in control of the 348-seat chamber. …

    WASHINGTON - There can be only one response to the barbaric beheading of American journalist James Foley by Islamic State terrorists. We must hunt them down and kill them. President Obama said as much in his brief remarks in the wake of the terrorists' grisly video that showed Foley's execution by a masked jihadist who spoke with a British accent and is believed to be a British citizen. The United States will "do what we must to protect our people," Obama said Wednesday. "We will be vigilant and we will be relentless" in bringing them to justice. No sooner had...

    President Francois Hollande on Monday pleaded with the French to be proud of their country in an attempt to boost confidence at a time of enduring gloom over record unemployment and faltering growth. Speaking in a televised interview on France's national Bastille Day holiday after a military parade commemorating World War I, Hollande tried to persuade the country that his reforms were the right way forward despite opposition within his own ranks. "There is a sort of illness which is not serious but can be contagious, where we are always deploring and denigrating. You have to be proud!" he said,...

    France will miss its European Commission debt targets this year and in 2015 because of its excessive taxation of companies and high spending on healthcare and pensions, the EU’s executive said today (2 June). Under EU law, governments must not run budget deficits higher than 3% of economic output or gross domestic product (GDP). If they do, they fall under the excessive deficit procedure, which could lead to fines. […] European Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs and the Euro Olli Rehn blamed France’s expected failure on weaker growth forecasts for 2015 and the fact that some stability measures were...

    In the wake of tens of thousands of people participating in pro-traditional family protests in France and throughout Europe, French President François Hollande backed down from submitting a new family-law bill to parliament that would make legal “assisted procreation for lesbian couples” and “surrogate motherhood for gay men” who want children. The demonstrations were led by La Manif Pour Tous (Protest for Everyone), a fast-growing coalition of groups that has organized massive rallies against same-sex marriage legislation throughout Europe. As Edward Pentin reports at Newsmax, Jean-Pierre Delaume-Myard, a spokesman for La Manif Pour Tous – who is himself gay –...
