    Speaking at the bogus climate summit in Paris, President Obama ran way over the allotted time for his speech -- in part, it appeared, because TOTUS was a bit slow. In any case, once Obama reached the time allowed, the subtle chime that is a triple ring to signal that the time is up, rang. But POTUS kept on talking. Then it rang again. POTUS kept talking. More ringing. More talking. At one point, POTUS reached a point in his speech when he said, "Let's send that signal." As if on cue, the chime rang yet again. To no avail....

A FYROM army source quoted by Agence France-Presse said the crossing from Greece to FYROM would remain open and that the fence was aimed at ensuring migrants did not try to slip across at other spots.

    Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu is one happy man. The reason is that the European Union is set to give in to every single one of his country's demands in order to do something about the refugee crisis. The EU wants Turkey to stem the refugee flow into Europe by taking care of them in Turkey. In return, Turkey wants 3 billion euros (around $3.2 billion US) in extra aid, visa-free traveling for Turks in EU-countries, and a re-launch of EU-accession talks. In other words: Turkey demands fast-track membership: "Today is a historic day in our accession process to the...

    Compare their quotes; uncanny. But there’s more to it than that. We may be entering a post-two party era. Guess who could start a new one? The continued radicalization of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has quickly become a movement centered on the fear and anxiety of foreign or non-white American bodies, and the hate-filled propaganda and lies that sustain it. He is coalescing his own American far-right political party with roots in white supremacy and neo-Nazi movements. He is copying the modus operandi of the resurgent far-right movements that are sweeping across Europe. He is becoming America’s own Le Pen—Marine...

(CNS photo/Etienne Laurent, EPA) When many think about France and religion today, the images that usually come to mind are those of a highly secular society with a growing Islamic presence: a combination of widespread indifferentism, epicurean Voltairans, persistent anti-Semitism, increasingly radicalized Muslims, and now jihadist-inspired and organized terrorism.

Not a single mention was made of the Palestinian attacks, which have left 22 Israelis dead and hundreds wounded, nor did any other countries - even serial human rights violators such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, Russia and others - receive any of the General Assembly's attention.

    French intelligence officials were not aware until days after this month's deadly terror attack on Paris that the suspected mastermind of the carnage had a female cousin living just north of the capital, according to a published report. The Wall Street Journal reports that information provided by Moroccan intelligence tied Hasna Houlahcen to Abdelhamid Abaaoud, enabling authorities to launch the raid that killed the two relatives this past Wednesday in Saint-Denis. However, that lapse and others has left France's security services with uncomfortable questions to answer as the country reels from a second deadly act of terror following the attacks...

    France's military may suffer from a poor reputation in American popular imagination, dating from historical events like the rapid fall to Nazi Germany in World War II and the colonial-era defeat at Dien Bien Phu. This is a mistake: The French airstrikes on Islamic State positions in Syria are only the beginning of the counterattack against ISIS, as French officials themselves are promising. And as anyone familiar with France's military capabilities can attest, when it comes to war the French are among the very best. Moreover, whatever France does probably will not look like anything the U.S. would do. There...

    So Brussels is on lockdown due to the heightened terror threat. Trains have been canceled, people have been told to stay away from crowded areas, meaning that the center is deserted and sporting events have been postponed. It's no surprise really, because about half a mile northwest of Brussels' city center lies the shabby suburb of Molenbeek. It is one of Brussels' nineteen districts. This run down area of the Belgian capital has become the epicenter of a media storm during the past week as a number of the terrorists behind the appalling Paris attacks came from Molenbeek. [...] In...

    Britain's Prince Charles has pointed to the world's failure to tackle climate change as a root cause of the civil war in Syria, terrorism and the consequent refugee crisis engulfing Europe. The heir to the British throne is due to give a keynote speech at the opening of a global climate summit in Paris next week where 118 leaders will gather to try to nail down a deal to limit rising greenhouse gas emissions. "Some of us were saying 20 something years ago that if we didn't tackle these issues, you would see ever greater conflict over scarce resources and...
