    California Gov. Jerry Brown's recent trip to the capital of the European Union had all the trappings of a visit by a head of state - he even got an upgraded title. "Mr. President, welcome in Brussels," Brown, a Democrat, was told this month as he exited his Mercedes van in front of the European Parliament in the spot usually reserved for national leaders. Then he was whisked off to a day of hearings, testimony and high-level meetings in the heart of European power.

    Soldiers in Brussels shot and killed a man on Friday who attacked them with a machete in what appears to be an Islamic terrorist attack.

The suspect, reportedly a 30-year-old Somali man, attacked the soldiers near a location where ISIS called for vehicle attacks just several days ago. Officials reported the attacker injured two soldiers before being killed. Belgian authorities now believe the attack...

    Machete-Wielding Man Shot Dead in Brussels Terror Attack After Attacking Soldiers A knife-wielding man was shot dead on Friday after wounding a soldier in Brussels, in what authorities called a “terrorist attack”. The man, who prosecutors said yelled ‘Allahu akbar’ (God is greatest) during the violence, was shot by soldiers on a street in the city centre. “We believe that it is a terrorist attack,” said a prosecutors’ office spokeswoman, who added the attacker “is dead.” The incident comes after attacks claimed by the Islamic State group in Spain last week killed 15 people and a knifeman’s stabbing spree in...

Belgium's anti-terror crisis center said in a tweet late Friday that the "situation is under control."

    The Fusion GPS news-for-hire scandal has not only led to the public identification of the source of the “Trump Dossier”—a for-profit company that provides opposition research to whoever could write big checks, which is staffed by four former Wall Street Journal reporters led by Glenn Simpson. The scandal has also lifted the lid off a sewer of corporate information warfare and opposition research that the flailing institutions of the mainstream press now regularly re-package as news, without ever saying where it came from—or who paid for it. While the idea that the products of paid opposition research are being main-lined...

    Britain is pulling out of an agreement that permits fishermen from five other countries to operate in U.K. waters, the first step in reasserting control over its fishing industry as it prepares to leave the European Union. The government announced Sunday it will trigger the two-year process of leaving the London Fisheries Convention, which allows vessels from France, Belgium, Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands to fish between six and 12 nautical miles off the U.K. coastline. Britain signed the convention before it joined the EU and would be bound by its terms after leaving the bloc unless it starts to...

    Polish and Belgian bishops have become the latest to issue statements on Communion for civilly remarried divorcees, and both contradict the other. Edward Pentin Since the publication last year of Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation on the family Amoris Laetitia, a “doctrinal anarchy” that was feared and predicted at the synods on the family is becoming apparent. Belgium’s bishops have become the latest to read the exhortation as giving — under certain conditions but with an emphasis on the primacy of conscience — access to the Sacraments for some civilly remarried divorcees without an annulment.
