    Yeah, I know conservatives are not supposed to be excited about change and disruption and actually accomplishing things, but you look at what the French people are doing and you have to think, “You tell those elitist jerks what’s what, Pierre!” Those feisty frogs are sick and tired of being forced to sacrifice their francs (yeah, I know they use euros, but “franc” has a “k” sound so it’s funnier) on the carbon tax altar to Gaia, the false demigod worshipped by the smart set congregation of the creepy weather cult. Impoverish the peasants today to maybe make it a...

    But a funny thing has happened to Trudeau on his way to Marrakesh. The French Carbon Tax Revolt against his bosom buddy President Macron has suffered a major setback scored as an unexpected historic victory of the ‘yellow jackets’. Why would Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau be wiling to blow more than half a billion dollars on a left-leaning media already in the tank for him? Just like the country next door’s, the Canadian media is overwhelmingly left-leaning, and from the $1-billion-a-year taxpayer-subsidized Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) down through the media ranks, is already in Trudeau’s back pocket.

    How often can I be right? As much as President Trump said Americans will win. As France burns from years of socialist rule, America goes through a Renaissance. The difference is America elected a real leader and not a chump. We watched for 8 years as our black version of Emmanuel Macron ruined the country. Over $8 trillion worthless dollars printed then pumped into an anemic economy, and the black Boy Wonder felt like a rock star. As one comedian put it, “We told you Obama was Superman, but we forgot to tell you he didn’t know how to fly.”...

    It’s easy to laugh at this weekend’s Unite the Right rally. It was pathetic. Media outnumbered white supremacists, and counterprotesters outnumbered the media. If that’s the alt-right in 2018, then public white supremacy in the United States is reverting back to its pre-2015 norm — when you could always find a couple dozen neo-Nazis to march somewhere, but you’d rarely see the kind of numbers we watched in Charlottesville. But as the alt-right fades (for now), let’s not forget its legacy. And let’s not turn our heads from its malignant influence. Consider what happened between 2015 and yesterday’s pitiful march.

    French celebrations over the national football team’s World Cup victory on Sunday quickly turned to violence, with street clashes, vandalism, attacks on police, and scenes of looting in cities across the country. As many as a million people had been enjoying the “good-natured atmosphere” at an event on the Champs-Élysées in Paris following France’s 4-2 win against Croatia, which ministers had hoped would bring a “great moment” of “national unity”. But by 11 pm the jubilant mood had turned to chaos, with what local media describes as “bands of thugs” launching projectiles including bottles at police, who responded by firing...
  • EgyptAir flight MS804: French investigators says fire likely cause

    BBC ^ | 7 July 2018
    The crash of EgyptAir flight MS804 in 2016 was probably caused by a fire in the cockpit, French investigators say. France's civil aviation accident bureau, known as BEA, said in a press release on Friday that "the most likely hypothesis is that a fire broke out in the cockpit while the aeroplane was flying at its cruise altitude and that the fire spread rapidly resulting in the loss of control of the aeroplane". The agency said that the crew could be heard discussing a fire on the cockpit voice recorder and that systems on board had detected smoke inside the...

    Greenpeace activists flew a Superman-shaped drone into the no-fly zone around a French nuclear plant on Tuesday before crashing it against the building to highlight the facility’s lack of security. The drone, piloted by one of Greenpeace’s activists, slammed into the tower in Bugey nuclear plant, about 20 miles from the eastern city of Lyon, the group said in a video. “This action again highlights the extreme vulnerability of this type of buildings, which contain the highest amount of radioactivity in nuclear plants,” Greenpeace said, according to Reuters. The environmental group, which also crashed a tiny radio-controlled plane into the...

    Becoming president of the United States is one of the most difficult and consequential achievements for any person, in any place, in the entire world. The climb begins invariably against long odds, the process is grueling — for the candidate, his family, and his allies — and the prize is immense. With victory comes an informal title, the most powerful man in the world. It’s impossible to begin that journey without a measure of faith — in God, sometimes, in your team, sometimes, and in yourself, usually. If you decide to run, there has to be a belief not just...

    Another Christian has lost his livelihood for good-faith wrongspeak. This time it was for articulating extremely basic Christian truth that it’s sinful to celebrate sexual immorality. Here’s BuzzFeed with the story: A high-ranking CrossFit employee was fired after tweeting his support for a CrossFit gym’s cancellation of a Pride event, citing his belief that celebrating LGBT pride is a “sin.” Russell Berger was the mega-successful fitness company’s chief knowledge officer, often de facto spokesperson, and a co-author of the Russells, a blog about scientific misconduct that he maintained with colleague Russell Greene. But Berger got into hot water Wednesday afternoon...

    Former President Barack Hussein Obama not only ordered agencies to spy on just President Trump, but turns out he ordered the CIA to spy on then french presidential candidate Marine Le Pen. In a huge bombshell revealed from Wikileaks, Barack Obama interfered and ordered the Central Intelligence Agency to spy on French presidential candidate Marine LaPen. The revelation was revealed when Julian Assange replied to President Donald Trump’s tweet about #Spygate being the biggest political scandal in U.S. history.
  • Cannes: migrant documentary-maker slams French state policies

    The cast and crew of a new documentary pose together on the famous red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival, ahead of a screening of their new film on French migrant rights. It tells the story of an olive farmer, Cedric Herrou, who's helped thousands of migrants cross the French-Italian border. His aid work has landed him in court a number of times, but has helped him become a symbol for activists fighting asylum law. The 38-year-old olive farmer, who stars in the documentary, says he won't let the glamour of the film industry go to his head: "I'm going...

According to a press release from the first lady's office, every aspect of the visit was "all carefully selected by First Lady Melania Trump, to complement and pay homage to the long-standing friendship between the United States and France." Let's get to the most important matter: what are they eating? The main course, we're happy to report, will include jambalaya, "which will be cooked in a New...

    The National Assembly in France has passed new immigration laws that toughen up asylum rules by speeding up the application procedure and making it easier to deport people. The controversial law has brought widespread criticism from human right defenders and sown rare divisions within French president Emmanuel Macron's own Republic on the Move (LRM) centrist party. French lawmakers passed the bill 228 votes to 139, with 24 abstentions on Sunday (22 April) following a marathon debate that lasted 61 hours and attracted around 1,000 amendments. Some 14 members of the LRM party abstained with another voting against the bill. The...

    Their relationship began with a show of machismo –- an extended, white-knuckle handshake on their first meeting last year in Belgium. Emmanuel Macron had reportedly studied Donald Trump’s style of domineering power-grabbing handshakes, apparently prepared to avoid being outdone by his counterpart. Instead, it was President Trump who at one point in the 5-second-long handshake attempted to withdraw his hand from Macron's firm grasp. The maneuver marked the start of what has become a close partnership between the two leaders, who recently joined forces along with the United Kingdom to strike Syria earlier this month. "It's no secret that President...

    French police battled Tuesday to evict anti-airport protesters and the creators of an alternative anti-capitalist settlement in western France during a second day of clashes. Some 2,500 officers raided the decade-old camp at Notre-Dame-des-Landes on Monday, destroying makeshift buildings topped with corrugated iron, a giant tent, a watchtower, and a sheep shed and cheese-making area. The assault in a wooded area near the city of Nantes has seen dozens of rounds of tear gas fired, as well as stun grenades,
