    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the Queen and the Royal Family at the State Banquet for the King and Queen of the Netherlands on Tuesday night. Kate wore a blue Alexander McQueen gown and the Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara, which once belonged to Princess Diana. The diamond and pearl headpiece dates back to 1914, when Queen Mary commissioned the piece from Garrard. It was passed down to her granddaughter, the Queen, who then gave it to Princess Diana as a wedding present in 1981. Kate teamed it with Princess Diana’s Collingwood pearl and diamond drop earrings. According to...

Norwegian police have opened an investigation into the disappearance of Arjen Kamphuis, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's associate, who was last seen in the northern Norwegian town of Bodo on August 20. ...

    Rev. Bill Freeman, whose liberal doctrine at Menifee United Church of Christ resulted in backlash from the conservative Sun City community the last 3 1/2 years, will deliver his final sermon for the church on Sunday. Freeman announced recently that he is resigning his position, saying in a news release, "I feel I've taken the church about as far as I can." He told Menifee 24/7 on Thursday that he and his wife plan to move back to Michigan, where they have family and where Freeman served as a pastor before moving to California in 2014.

    AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra quit on Tuesday after admitting that he had fabricated a story about attending a meeting in 2006 at which he said Russian President Vladimir Putin had outlined a strategy for building a greater Russia. The incident has embarrassed Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s coalition government, which has a parliamentary majority of just one, and further strained difficult ties with Russia. Zijlstra, visibly emotional as he took the floor during a parliamentary debate convened to discuss his behavior, said he had decided to tender his resignation to the king because the situation risked harming...

    Dutch intelligence services had eyes and ears for years on the Russian outfit that hacked the Democratic National Committee, even infiltrating a surveillance camera at the Cozy Bear headquarters and recording hackers' faces, Dutch media reported. That trove of intelligence gathered by the Netherlands since 2014 has been crucial to the U.S. investigation into the Russian campaign influence operation, the reports from Nieuwsuur and Volkskrant said. Cybersecurity company CrowdStrike reportedly first noticed the DNC hack by two Russian intelligence groups on June 14, 2016; CrowdStrike CTO Dmitri Alperovitch wrote in a blog post at the time that they were called...

    Reporter Stef Meerberger said on Belgian national TV that mosques in the city of Antwerp receive drug money on a monthly basis. Meerberger was on television to give clarification regarding his documentary on the cocaine trade in Antwerp. He said: “The reality is hard to control but also much worse than we can image. Several cash flows are clearly traceable and I ask myself the question: Why aren’t the police and the district attorney acting on this?” The reporter added that he heard from a very reliable source that mosques, particularly in the Netherlands and in the Belgian city of...

    The report Dutch Police tried to hide: almost 10.000 refugees suspected of (organised) crimes in 2015 and 2016 alone A Dutch police report that was supposed to remain hidden from the public now unveils that in 2015 and 2016 there are 104 cases of status-holders suspected of serious crimes, like armed robbery and sex offences. Furthermore, 183 are repeat offenders, while 9300 of them are suspected of committing a single offence. What makes this worse, is that large groups of asylum seekers seem to be part of organised crime groups, that trek from country to country, stealing on order. One...

    The elections in Holland took place on the 15th of March. What has happened since that day? Not a damn thing. Parties* are negotiating. Not all the time, though. Yasser Feras (Jesse Klaver) wants to spend time with his kids. So he insists on ‘daddy days’. No negotiating on a daddy day. Or we don’t negotiate because mommy Klaver died. Rest assured, an ultra-left cabinet is in the making. The Dutch electorate voted somewhat conservatively. The Labor Party (PvdA) was virtually murdered from 38 seats down to 9 seats. Voters weren’t too happy with the conservatives (VVD) either, they went...

    A Dutch woman doctor who drugged an elderly woman and then asked her family to hold her down as she fought desperately not to be killed did not break the law, according to medical experts citing the country's euthanasia legislation. The shocking case was referred to the so-called Regional Review Committee in the Netherlands which admitted that while the case involved some irregularities that merited a reprimand, the female doctor had effectively acted in good faith. However they also added that the case should come to court so that judges can confirm that any other doctor who acts in good...

    The Dutch elections of March 15 were billed around Europe and beyond as a battle royal between the forces of populist evil, as represented by Geert Wilders and his Freedom Party (PVV), and virtually everybody else in the motley crew of Dutch electoral politics. The victory of prime minister’s Mark Rutte’s VVD party (which lost 20% of its seats) over Wilders’s PVV (which added 25%), was greeted rapturously as a monumental defeat for populism and great triumph for Europe across the political spectrum. In fact, it was nothing of the kind, and if its coverage showed anything, it was...

    Where would we be without the Netherlands? In its 17th-century golden age, it helped pioneer capitalism, individual liberty, and peaceful religious diversity. Even today, it punches far above its weight both economically and culturally. Yet this country of just under 17 million people has also been at the forefront of the single most disastrous multinational policy of our time: the post-war decision to take in hordes of unvetted immigrants from the Muslim world. This big-hearted but soft-headed folly (in which the general public had no say) involved several catastrophically misguided assumptions: that people born and bred under deeply corrupt political...

    Wearing spivvy shoes, a tight blue suit and a crooked smile, the wide boy of European politics strides into a room in the Dutch parliament building, flanked by armed security men. He holds up a fat paperback entitled Anger, full of stories of ordinary folk worried about the kind of issues that swept Donald Trump to power in America. 'Our people have been betrayed by politicians and want a new Patriotic Spring,' he tells his audience, who nod enthusiastically. This is Geert Wilders, the 53-year-old of part-Indonesian heritage with peroxide blond hair, who is turning Dutch thinking on its head....

In a shocking tweet, he summed up his (and we suspect many Germans) feelings... After being convicted for incitement to discrimination (and insulting an ethnic group), we can only imagine what punishment the European bureaucrats will mete out for such a tweet.
