    French mayor Robert Ménard has been fined by the government for hate speech after mentioning that French children were being “replaced” in schools. Mr. Ménard, who serves as the mayor of Béziers, was sentenced to a fine of 2,000 euros for the comments he made on Twitter in September of 2016, France 24 reports. The independent mayor, who is supported by the Front National, then told local television station LCI a few days after making the post: “In a class in the city centre of my town, 91 per cent of the children are Muslims. Obviously, this is a problem....

    "Second, where Le Pen fetishizes national division, Macron speaks of patriotism joined to opportunity. Even as words alone, this is a political narrative that France desperately needs. As Andrew Hussey explains in his 2014 book, The French Intifada, many young French Muslims feel that their citizenry exists on paper only — that when it comes to education, opportunity, and respect, their country has no interest in them. American conservatives should be alarmed by that sentiment. The glory of American patriotism is its combination of shared opportunity and personal responsibility. Indeed, American Muslims’ patriotism is proof that Le Pen is wrong....

    French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has sought to soften her position on euro exit saying that she felt European but understands French concerns about their savings. Many French people were thinking that their savings could lose value once the country returned to the franc. During her interview on France's most watched television station TFI, Le Pen refused to say her stance on leaving euro. Her platform was to pull out the euros but some of her interviews contradicted it as she softened her views. On her campaign on Tuesday night, she avoided some of the incendiary attacks she made...

    Graphic shows the progression of municipalities in which the Front National came first, culminating in the 2017 Presidential Election (FranceTV Info/ NICOLAS ENAULT / CARTO). Despite not reaching the watershed 30% that many supporters had hoped for on Sunday, Marine Le Pen has made considerable inroads across France, coming first in 18,845 municipalities versus rival Emmanuel Macron, himself placing first in only 7,222. The country as a whole has some 35,000 municipalities, making Le Pen, geographically at least, by far the winning candidate of Sunday’s first round of voting. In what could be the real story of the campaign, the...
  • Immigration the Common Thread Between French, American Elections

    In case you've been confused by the last few days of punditry, let me say outright that France is not America. For example, we recently concluded a presidential election in the United States in which many argued that it was imperative to smash the "final glass ceiling" by electing a female president. One doesn't hear that kind of talk in France about Marine Le Pen, who just came in second in the first round of presidential elections. If she wins the runoff against Emmanuel Macron on May 7, she would be France's first female president. Why is there no "ready...

    French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron’s political campaign was targeted by a group of Russian hackers last month, according to a report by a cybersecurity research group on Tuesday. The Pawn Storm group, which has been linked to several high-profile attacks in the West, used “phishing” techniques to try to steal personal data from Macron and members of his En Marche! campaign, Japan-based Trend Micro said. Pawn Storm, also known as APT28, is also believed to be behind the attacks last summer on the US Democratic National Committee, thought to be aimed at undermining Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid. It is widely...

    Should French Jews fear the potential election of Marine Le Pen? Should they leave France if she wins the presidency, per the advice of a leading rabbi? Is she rightly characterized as a “hate” candidate, following in the footsteps of her Holocaust-denying father? And is she right in calling for France’s Jews to make certain sacrifices, since she will ask Muslims to do the same?The short answer is: It’s complicated but clear. Let me explain why.According to Francis Kalifat, president of the CRIF umbrella group of French Jewish communities, Le Pen is a “candidate of hate” and Jews should unite...

    For the French establishment, Sunday's presidential election came close to a near-death experience. As the Duke of Wellington said of Waterloo, it was a "damn near-run thing." Neither candidate of the two major parties that have ruled France since Charles De Gaulle even made it into the runoff, an astonishing repudiation of France's national elite. Marine Le Pen of the National Front ran second with 21.5 percent of the vote. Emmanuel Macron of the new party En Marche! won 23.8 percent. Macron is a heavy favorite on May 7. The Republicans' Francois Fillon, who got 20 percent, and the Socialists'...

    Emmanuel Macron is “the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being France has ever known.” Emmanuel Macron is a globalist stooge. Emmanuel Macron is a paid lackey of Brussels. Emmanuel Macron is the establishment’s water boy. Emmanuel Macron is France’s Manchurian Candidate. Yesterday, the French people chose globalist backed, former investment banker, Emmanuel Macron from the party, En Marche and Marine Le Pen, the populist female leader of the National Front to advance to the final election on May 7th. Macron garnered 24.01% of the vote and Le Pen, 21.30%. The French voters jettisoned long time favorites; conservative Francois Fillon...

    Far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has announced that she is stepping aside as leader of the National Front (FN) party.

Ms. Le Pen used her interview to launch a blistering attack on Mr. Macron, saying his policies would lead to savage globalization and massive immigration, and that he had not shown...
