    he cradle of French history is becoming “Molenbeek-sur-Seine,” from the name of Brussels’ terror hub. Le Figaro newspaper decided to investigate Saint-Denis, the heart of Islamization in France, the suburb from where the ISIS terror cell orchestrated the Paris attacks (the mastermind, Abdelhamid Abaoud, was killed there in a raid). Saint-Denis is the religious epicenter of France. The “Lendit Plain” between the Montmartre hill and Saint-Denis was, before the Roman conquest, the Celts’ religious site. We know that Denis and his companion martyr Éleuthère paid with their lives to evangelize the region. In Saint-Denis, the holy lamp used for coronations...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews has been scoffing at Donald Trump's description of Hillary Clinton as an "enabler" of her husband's serial abuse of women. Trump said: "(Hillary's) got a problem. She's married to a person that's a serious abuser -- and I mean, at the highest level. She's not an innocent victim. She was the one that would go along with him in this whole game that they play. She's not the innocent person sitting by his side, with tears in her eyes ..." In disbelief, Matthews responded: "I have never heard anybody go after Hillary Clinton and say she's an...

I’m also not here to provide false hope for the so-called American left, which is far too mesmerized by the debased spectacle of presidential politics and is about to get patronized, bamboozled and bulldozed one more time, and I’m definitely not here to shill for the Democratic Party, whose current identity crisis is embodied with eerie precision in the personage of Hillary Clinton.Maybe you’ve heard about this: Hillary Clinton, who used to be secretary of state and before that a senator...

Her mission: Help Boatwright figure out who he is. She first contacted the military. Among the IDs police discovered on him was one from the Department of Veterans Affairs. He'd served from 1971 to 1973 in the Navy as an aviation mechanic.

    He didn't recall serving in the U.S. Navy. Or of being born in Florida. When doctors told him he had five tennis rackets in his hotel room, he couldn't say why. When they showed him photos of himself with others, he didn't recognize them, or himself. And he didn't speak a word of English. The man said his name was Johan Ek. And he said it in Swedish. That was back in February.

Does he not realize that videotape exists of this - at Youtube and all over the net? Does he think that he can say anything and that anything and everything he says somehow has an expiration date?

    Little Rock, Ark. (AP) -- Former President Bill Clinton said Wednesday it would be a mistake for voters to give in to "anger, apathy and amnesia" and deprive Arkansas of the Senate Agriculture chairmanship by defeating Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln. Clinton returned to his home state to rally support for Lincoln as she fights to save her Senate career and to help raise money for two Democratic congressional hopefuls. Most polls show Lincoln badly trailing her Republican challenger, U.S. Rep. John Boozman, though she has more money for the race. Clinton told a roomful of supporters at a downtown Little...

    As we get into the primary and general election season it is clear that U. S. citizens are a particularly ungrateful lot. Voters are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. They are angry that the economy remains sour, with unemployment persisting at more than 9 percent. Conditions are bad for businesses, and home values remain low, with many people owing more than their houses are worth. People don't like enormous federal deficits or a burgeoning national debt. The general attitude is to throw the rascals out and vote in replacements who will bring about economic prosperity,...

He also didn't remember who he was, where he came from or anything about his identity or past.
