    This is the reality: A career diplomat crossing European borders in a rented car while carrying a professionally-made bomb, which bears a design favored by jihadists. In Luxembourg, he hands over the bomb to two would-be terrorists, long-standing residents of Europe who just look like any ordinary young married couple. They accept it with a clear mission in mind: to bomb a political rally in the largest convention center in France, located in the suburbs of Paris. If the plot is successful, it will kill many among the tens of thousands of people in attendance, among who were hundreds of...

    It was mid-May, about six weeks after Trump appointee Mari Stull began her new job as senior adviser at the State Department’s Bureau of International Organization Affairs. As senior adviser at the bureau, Stull was in charge of making sure President Trump’s agenda was represented at the many international organizations the U.S. participates in and mostly funds, such as the United Nations and its various agencies. Stull and her boss, Amb. Kevin Moley, had just left for a trip to Geneva for the World Health Assembly. Back at the State Department, Erin Barclay, a senior career diplomat at the IO...

    AT least two British visitors to Paris were among seven victims of a savage knife attack in the French capital, police said last night. A suspect ‘of Pakistani or Afghan origin’ began ‘slashing passers-by’ on the Loire Quay in the north of the city on Sunday night, according to reports. The knifeman, who was also armed with a metal bar, first stabbed three people outside the MK2 cinema complex, "including two English tourists", according to investigators.

    Men are peeing en plein air, on one of Paris’s most beautiful 17th-century streetscapes. And the people of Paris are peeved. Me? I’m just upset that women can’t do it, too. Paris’s pee-ers are making their daily deposits into uritrottoirs, mini street-side urinals topped with flower boxes. These chest-height repositories sport a hole below the foliage for urine, which collects in a bale of concealed straw, later used to produce nitrogen-rich compost for Paris parks and gardens. The city has chosen to install the uritrottoirs – a portmanteau of urinoir (urinal) and trottoir (sidewalk) – to combat public peeing on...

  • Eco-friendly open-air urinals cause uproar in Paris

    08/14/2018 7:49:40 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 66 replies
    An attempt by officials in Paris to tackle public urination by installing open-air urinals, or "uritrottoirs," has outraged some residents of the French capital. The new urinals, housed in flower boxes, aren't subtle -- they're fully exposed on street corners, are painted bright red and have nearby signs advertising their presence. Officials say the urinals are eco-friendly -- they will harness nutrients in waste to produce compost for parks and gardens. According to the statement, one year of a person's urine holds enough nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium to fertilize 400 square meters of wheat. However, these features have done little...

    The air pollution in Paris is so bad that visiting the city for a long weekend means you have as good as smoked two cigarettes and those living in the city smoke the equivalent of 183 a year, a new study reveals. […] “When air pollution is bad, we are told to avoid eating or exercising outside,” Transport & Environment’s Jens Müller said. “But walking around cities and eating on restaurant terraces is what city breaks are all about. Right now, tourists, including kids, are more or less forced to smoke, in terms of the health impacts.” However, the French...

    A punch-up between two rival French rappers that descended into a mass brawl in the departure lounge of Paris’ Orly airport on Wednesday forced the brief closure of one terminal and caused flight delays. Some passengers scurried for safety while others took videos on their cell phones as rappers Booba and Kaaris and their minders swung punches and lashed out with kicks and crashed through cosmetics stands in a duty-free shop, videos on social media showed. A border police spokesman said the two artists had been arrested along with nine others from their entourages. ADP, which manages Orly, said...

    FRENCH riot police were called in to combat violence in France as riots erupted on streets and left two fans dead hours after their football team won the World Cup in Russia.

    "The French Suicide" ("Le suicide français") is a book published by the author Éric Zemmour in October 2014. Just one year later, on November 13, 2015 in Paris, a horror took place at the Bataclan Theater, when three terrorists fired into the crowd during a concert, murdered 130 people, and injured 413. Some of the victims had been tortured. The French population reacted as usual: shock and horror quickly gave way to resignation and submission. Flowers, candles and teddy bears were placed at the scene of the attacks. The government promised to act, but did almost nothing. A ceremony was...

    Traditionalist priests now account for 20 per cent of ordinations in FranceThe number of new ordinations in France has fallen this year, from 133 in 2017 to 114.

Lyon, Versailles and Fréjus-Toulon follow with five each, then Evry with four. However, a total...

    A suspect in the Paris and Brussels terror attacks has been identified by Belgian police as having been among a group of ISIS extremists who burned a Jordanian pilot alive in a cage. Osama Krayem, a Swede of Syrian origin, has been held in Belgium since 2016 and could face war crimes charges over the murder of Maaz al-Kassasbeh, whose grisly death was filmed and put online in an incident that came to symbolise some of the worst excesses of ISIS. Krayem is suspected of playing a key role in the jihadist cell behind the attacks in Paris, which killed...

    Apparently the mullahs and their goon squads were in for a surprise when on Sunday, someone opened fire on them in Khorramshahr, 400 miles southwest of Tehran, as they rolled in to shut down a protest over locals getting poisoned by untreated water. It's an area with a large Arabic population out near the Iraqi border. The gunfire came back at them. Mowing down is now going two ways, and it's clear the regime is scared - their official state media said the protestors only threw stones and garbage. Well, no. There's a spectacular, well-shot video on Twitter here, showing...

    Rainbow pedestrian crossings painted on roads in the Marais district of Paris for Saturday’s Gay Pride march will become a permanent feature, the city’s mayor has decided after one of them was tagged with homophobic graffiti. Several pedestrian crossings had been decorated the rainbow colors of the LGBT movement in preparation for the annual Gay Pride march that will take place in Paris on Saturday. But some people obviously took offense to the move, and one of the crossings had been painted over with homophobic insults daubed on the road. The words “LGBT out of France” were painted on the...
