    Americans were left in the lurch by Joe Biden, stuck behind enemy lines in Afghanistan, despite the fact that the Biden team was warned about the impending collapse of Afghanistan and Kabul. They were then told that if they were outside of Kabul, there was no plan to get them out. Even the people in Kabul were told: Figure out your own way to the airport through the Taliban because we’re not going to help get you there.Now, just in perspective, understand that the French and the British are actually going out and extracting their citizens in Kabul and bringing...

    A Rwandan immigrant walked into French police station on Monday and said he had murdered the Catholic priest giving him shelter while he awaited possible trial over a fire at a cathedral last year... "So in France you can be an illegal immigrant, torch Nantes cathedral, never be expelled and reoffend by murdering a priest. What's happening in our country is unprecedented: the total failure of the state," Marine Le Pen France's immigration authorities handed the Rwandan national an expulsion order in 2019, but he remained in the country. Senator Bruno Retailleau, who represents the Vendee region, identified the victim...

    American Mind ^ | 07.29.2021 | Michael Anton
    In early 2019, I published a short book that, gingerly, argued that the inevitable end-point of leftist arguments is that some demographic categories are simply born bad while others are born good; that all bad things that happen to the good people are the result of the bad people; and therefore the bad people must be punished in perpetuity. I use the adverb “gingerly” because, back then, nobody spelled out exactly what the plan is. As I put it, the Left knows that it is in a difficult rhetorical position. The heart of its argument is that some people are...

    One of America’s most influential pastors is facing a crisis. No, it’s not the crisis of personal scandal. It’s the crisis of church division—over race, ideology, and minutiae of church procedure. Putting aside the procedural arguments, that division is a microcosm of the racial conflicts that are dividing the larger American church and the nation itself. David Platt is a bestselling author, the former president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s International Mission Board, and the pastor of McLean Bible Church (MBC), a huge and influential church located outside Washington, D.C. Platt is facing a revolt from self-described “conservative” congregants, a...

  • France bans schools from teaching 'gender neutral' words with full stops in the middle because they are 'a threat to the language'

    France has banned schools from using 'gender neutral' spellings, saying they are a threat to the French language. The country's education ministry issued the ruling last week after a push to include full stops in the middle of written words - dubbed 'midpoints' - which allow both male and female forms to be represented simultaneously. But the Academie Francaise, which is responsible for guarding the French language, said the move is 'harmful to the practice and understanding of [French.]'

    A French pilot has filed a legal complaint after being subjected to a traumatic hazing ritual in which he was tied to a target and had fighter jets open fire around him. The unnamed man had just been posted to an airbase in the south of the island of Corsica in March 2019 when he was grabbed by colleagues and tied up with adhesive tape. After having a bag put over his head, the recruit in his 30s was then transported to a live-fire target range, tied to a target, and then heard fighter jets open fire and drop munitions...

  • ‘Francaises, Francais’: Could the French language be less sexist?

    France24 ^ | March 4, 2021
    After stirring heated debates about “Islamo-leftism” in universities and meat-free meals in school canteens, France’s ruling party has fallen back on another cause célèbre of the conservative camp: defending a status quo in the French language that is unmistakably sexist. According to French grammar rules, all pronouns, nouns and adjectives carry the gender of the object or person they refer to. There is no gender-neutral pronoun like “they” and the masculine form is considered dominant in the plural: Thus, 10 French women make up a group of Françaises; but add just one male and they become Français. Feminists have long...
  • French police attacked while trying to stop New Year’s Eve rave

    Police attempting to shut down an underground, curfew-busting New Year’s Eve party that drew at least 2,500 people in western France were attacked by ravers who torched one police vehicle and injured officers with volleys of bottles and stones. Hundreds of vehicles started converging on a hangar in Lieuron, Brittany, on Thursday night to party into the new year, the regional government said on Friday. It said police were attacked when they tried to stop ravers from installing their party gear. On Friday morning, 2,500 ravers from France and abroad were still partying, circled by a reinforced police presence, the...

    Police arrested an intoxicated man in Montpellier after he made death threats aboard a tram, telling passengers that in 2021, Islam would kill them all. The incident occurred at around 5:30 pm on Friday, November 20th, aboard a line two tram. The 33-year-old man, who was carrying a copy of the Quran, threatened people around him. “I’m going to kill you, slaughter you, you son of a bitch. You’re going to see in 2021, Islam, we’re going to kill you all,” the suspect said, according to witnesses. Several passengers then called the police, and two travellers later forced him off...

    A Chinese virologist has alleged the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) developed the Chinese coronavirus in a lab and is an ‘engineered chimera’ with ‘gain of function’ capabilities…in other words, a bioweapon developed by the CCP that was released upon the world. She alleges Dr. Anthony Fauci and the World Health Organization (WHO) are involved in a massive coverup for the Chicoms. A Chinese virologist and whistleblower on Wednesday (Aug. 5) claimed the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) is a chimera based on the “Zhoushan bat virus” and chastised the World Health Organization (WHO) for lying about the virus and operating according to...

    A report compiled by members of the French Senate has detailed the spread of political Islam across France and listed 44 proposals to combat radical Islamist ideology. The report, which was written by the Commission of Inquiry on Islamist Radicalisation and the Means to Combat It, claims that radical Islamism “is polymorphous, penetrating into all aspects of social life and tends to impose a new social standard by taking advantage of individual freedom”. Senator Jacqueline Eustache-Brinio, a member of the centre-right Republicans, said that nearly all of France is affected by radical Islam, adding: “We cannot accept it. Now or...

    France said on Friday its military forces had killed al Qaeda's North Africa chief Abdelmalek Droukdel, a key Islamist fighter that its forces had been hunting for more than seven years, during an operation in Mali. "On June 3, French army forces, with the support of their local partners, killed the emir of al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, Abdelmalek Droukdel, and several of his closest collaborators, during an operation in northern Mali," French Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly wrote on Twitter. The announcement of the death of Droukdel comes almost six months after former colonial power France and regional...

    On Saturday the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of two antimalarial drugs, hydroxychloroquine and a related medication, chloroquine, for emergency use to treat COVID-19. The drugs were touted by President Trump as a “game changer” for COVID-19. However, a study just published in a French medical journal provides new evidence that hydroxychloroquine does not appear to help the immune system clear the coronavirus from the body. The study comes on the heels of two others - one in France and one in China - that reported some benefits in the combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin for COVID-19 patients...

    A third of French people don’t wash their hands after going to the toilet and less than half before eating, while a fifth of Frenchmen change their underwear twice a week at best. These are some of the unsavoury findings of a new study into personal hygiene in France, which researchers and Gallic doctors say leaves a lot to be desired. The findings stand to reinforce stereotypes that the French take a laisser-faire approach to cleanliness. The survey by pollster Ifop found the French continued to display “ignorance of basic sanitary rules, despite public health messages and the current [coronavirus]...
