    SEVNICA, Slovenia — It’s a short book, just 42 pages and some filled with photographs. But it goes a long way in explaining the facts about the strong, proud people who carved a small but free nation out of the former Communist Yugoslavia and produced one of the most famous women in the world: Melania Trump. Author Sandi Gorisek doesn’t consider himself a writer, although he admits he is fond of dreaming up fairy tales to share with children. “I’m a storyteller,” says Gorisek, who makes a living as a mechanical engineer in a town just a few miles away...

    SEVNICA, Slovenia—On Jan. 20, 2017 the nation’s attention was fixed on the west balcony of the Capitol building in Washington, where President-elect Donald J. Trump and soon-to-be First Lady Melania Trump were about to arrive for the 45th swearing-in of a U.S. president. But lots of eyes were also fixed on the presidential inauguration thousands of miles away where some 125 guests and a dozen or so journalists from around the globe gathered around a big screen TV to watch the historic event unfold from their seats in Sevnica, Slovenia, Melania’s hometown. The scene that took place in the grand...

    President Trump has accepted an invitation from Slovenian President Borut Pahor to visit Slovenia, first lady Melania Trump's home country. Pahor extended the invitation to Trump during the Three Seas Initiative summit, a meeting of the countries that border the Baltic, Adriatic and Black seas, Pahor's office said in a statement. It's not clear when the visit will take place. On his Twitter account, Pahor posted a photo with Trump, and said the two were discussing a potential visit.

    TWO radicalised Frenchmen were arrested by Slovenian authorities on their way to Syria, where they were planning to join up with members of the radical Islamic group ISIS, French officials have said. The men, who were both on the government’s terrorist watch list, known as the ‘S’ list, managed to escape from France in December and head towards ISIS-controlled territory despite being under heavy police surveillance, it has been revealed. The extremists fled the country while under house arrest in Bayonne, a town in southwestern France, prefect of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques region Éric Morvan said. Mr Morvan said the men, whose...

    The very same human being reviled by his political enemies as mentally unfit to serve under the 25th Amendment was wildly cheered by a huge crowd in Warsaw, chanting, "USA! USA!" and "Donald Trump! Donald Trump!"  His speech delighted them, highlighting Poland's courage, endurance, and faith as a mainstay in defending our civilization, historically and now.  It was one of his best speeches ever. He was introduced by First Lady Melania Trump, who looked more comfortable and in command as a public speaker than ever before.  Perhaps living in the White House is solidifying her command of her role,...

    Catholic Citizens of Illinois ^ | June 6, 2017 | Mary Anne Hackett
    The First Lady met with the cardinal and the Slovenian ambassador after her visit with Pope Francis. Since the meeting of Donald and Melania Trump with Pope Francis, there has been much speculation about whether Melania is Catholic. She asked the pope to bless her rosary and also spent time in prayer before a statue of the Virgin Mary, causing plenty of media voices to wonder about her faith. Some hours after their visit with the pope, as we noted here, a spokesperson for the First Lady, Stephanie Grisham, confirmed that indeed, Melania Trump professes the Catholic faith, though she...

    The hamlet of Sevnica, population 5,000, sits right in the middle of the small, alpine nation of Slovenia, in a green valley along the Sava River, surrounded by pine-forested hills. "It's really an amazing climate," chirps Lidija Ogorevc, a cheerleader-peppy tour guide here. "You should try our wine, our salami." She stops in front of a fenced-in building — not unattractive, but clearly closed. "A cultural monument," she declares. This used to be the factory where Amalija Knavs, the mother of Melania Trump, designed children's clothes decades ago, when Slovenia was still part of Yugoslavia. The first lady, born Melanija...
  • Slovenia calls for recognition of nut cake after Pope's quip to Melania Trump at Vatican

    Until a few days ago, it was a tasty but obscure cake from Slovenia. But a quip by Pope Francis about Donald Trump's girth catapulted the Slovenian dessert putizza, also known as potica, to international attention. Now Slovenia has decided to capitalise on the dessert’s new-found fame by seeking official European Union recognition for the toothsome treat so that authentic recipes are not messed around with. It's being dubbed “the Melania effect” - it was to the First Lady that the Pope made the joke last Wednesday, when the Trumps visited the Vatican for the first time as part of...

    Melania Trump will become the first foreign-born wife of an American president in almost 200 years.

She was born in the former Yugoslav republic of Slovenia. It is a small country surrounded by Austria, Hungary, Italy and Croatia. It has a small coastline on the Adriatic Sea. Slovenia also has castles that are hundreds of years old, large forests and clear rivers. VOA recently traveled to the country to learn about Melania...

    The tiny town in Slovenia where Melania Trump grew up is basking in the glow of her impending role as America’s First Lady and hoping fervently for a visit from the former glamour model and her billionaire tycoon husband.But while the people of Sevnica are proud that one of their own is to become the first foreign-born First Lady since Louisa Adams, the London-born wife of John Quincy Adams, who was President in the 1820s, they seem less enthused about the election of Donald Trump.Standing next to one of the American flags that now festoon the small town on...

    It's been nearly half a century since the term "agony of defeat" joined the lexicon of American sports. To this day, the phrase remains a broadcasting staple, whether it's coverage of the Olympics or any number of sports. A Google search for "agony of defeat" returns nearly 500,000 results. With that in mind, we revisit the viral video that made an indelible mark on the sports world long before the era of social media -- the frightful ski jumping crash from the opening montage of "ABC's Wide World of Sports."

    The massive feminization of culture has had a major impact on European politics and the decisions which have lead to the European Migrant Crisis. Iben Thranholm joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss the deficiency of masculinity in European culture, how feminism has programmed women to see men as the enemy and the future of western civilization. "As the refugee crisis erupted and overwhelmed Europe, its political leaders - spearheaded by German Chancellor Angela Merkel - acted like timid mother hens, not as strong men responsible for guarding their country from an invasion." - Iben Thranholm Iben Thranholm is one of Denmark’s...
