  • Paris Climate Treaty Puts America Last

    11/24/2020 4:47:16 AM PST · by Kaslin · 10 replies ^ | November 24, 2020 | Stephen Moore
    Here we are in the midst of the second wave of a once-in-a-half-century pandemic, with the economy flattened and millions of Americans unemployed and race riots in the streets of our major cities. And Joe Biden says that one of his highest priorities as president will be to ... reenter the Paris Climate Accord. Trump kept his America First promise and pulled America out of this Obama-era treaty. Biden wants us back in -- immediately. Why? Paris is an unmitigated failure. You don't have to take my word for it. National Geographic, a supporter of climate change action, recently ran...

  • John Kerry Says Great Reset is Needed to Stop Rise of Populism

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry attended a panel discussion at the World Economic Forum during which he asserted that a great reset was urgently needed to stop the rise of populism. Kerry vowed that under a Biden administration, America would rejoin the job-killing Paris Climate Agreement but that this was “not enough.” “The notion of a reset is more important than ever before,” Kerry said. “I personally believe … we’re at the dawn of an extremely exciting time.” The former Senator made it clear that this “reset,” which is merely a re-branding of the same new world order that...
  • Biden plans immediate flurry of executive orders to reverse Trump policies

    President-elect Joe Biden is planning to quickly sign a series of executive orders after being sworn into office on Jan. 20, immediately forecasting that the country's politics have shifted and that his presidency will be guided by radically different priorities. He will rejoin the Paris climate accords, according to those close to his campaign and commitments he has made in recent months, and he will reverse President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the World Health Organization. He will repeal the ban on immigration from many Muslim-majority countries, and he will reinstate the program allowing "dreamers," who were brought to the United...

    BERLIN (AP) — The United States on Wednesday formally left the Paris Agreement, a global pact forged five years ago to avert the threat of catastrophic climate change. The move, long declared by U.S. President Donald Trump and triggered by his administration a year ago, isolates the United States in the world but has no immediate impact on international efforts to curb global warming. ....

    I see that Europe is closing down again due to Winnie the Flu from the land of Wu. All of France's 67 million people have been ordered to stay at home at all times with no visitors, or risk steep fines or prosecution, as coronavirus cases in the country continue to rise. "Your papers, please" Butt, Butt, Butt (excusez moi but(t) it strikes me that this is once again an appropriate spelling for this great conjunction) isn’t Europe the template for the correct-a-vous handling of the Corona? Isn’t President Trump the only* reprobate world leader who failed miserably to protect...

    Tens of thousands of Parisians last night caused massive traffic jams in a desperate attempt to flee the French capital ahead of the start of Emmanuel Macron's new national shutdown. Video posted to Twitter shows huge numbers of Parisians attempting a mass exodus out of the city in a bid to avoid the 9pm curfew and the start of the second lockdown from midnight. The night air was filled with the sound of blaring car horns while social media users estimated that Parisians had created 'hundreds of miles' of gridlock to escape to their second homes in the country.

The man, previously identified as Ali Hassan, seriously injured two employees of the Premieres Ligne...

Associated Press reporters at the scene saw police flooding into the neighborhood in eastern Paris, near the Richard Lenoir subway station. Police are “actively hunting” for the perpetrators and have cordoned off the area including the former Charlie Hebdo offices after a suspect package was noticed nearby, according to a police offical.
  • The Medieval Carpentry Techniques Used in Notre Dame Cathedral Rebuild

    CNA Staff, Sep 23, 2020 / 12:00 am MT (CNA).- After fire toppled the iconic spire and destroyed the roof of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France in April 2009, heated debates ensued about whether the reconstruction should use the church’s original design, or use a more modern design and technique. Some proposed futuristic ideas included a rooftop swimming pool and a greenhouse atop the 850-year-old cathedral. Last year, the French Senate passed a bill mandating that Notre-Dame be rebuilt as it was before the fire, with lumber and medieval carpentry techniques, which were highlighted in a public demonstration...

    A group of Paris, Tennessee residents said they had reason to believe that members of ANTIFA or Black Lives Matter wanted to tear down a statue of a Confederate soldier perched at their local courthouse square. According to the U.S. Census numbers, Paris has slightly more than 10,000 people. Local residents said a woman who grew up there, Rachel Allison, who now resides in Los Angeles, encourages people to remove the statue from a distance of 2,000 miles away. The statue, which the locals refer to as The Sentinel, is 120 years old. The statue symbolically faces the north, almost...

    Thirteen men and a woman went on trial Wednesday over the 2015 attacks against the Charlie Hebdo satirical newspaper and a kosher supermarket in Paris that marked the beginning of a wave of violence by the Islamic State group in Europe. Seventeen people and all three gunmen died during the three days of attacks in January 2015. Later that year, a separate network of French and Belgian fighters for Islamic State struck Paris again, this time killing 130 people in attacks at the Bataclan concert hall, the national stadium, and in bars and restaurants. Those on trial in France’s terrorism...

Trump, in his address on energy and the Permian Basin in Midland, Texas on Wednesday, said that by imposing these punishing restrictions -- and beyond restrictions the Washington radical-left, crazy Democrats would also send countless American jobs, factories, industries to China and to other foreign...

    Police arrested a 32-year-old man in the Paris no-go suburbs of Seine-Saint-Denis after a failed attempt to attack party-goers while he was armed with a blade and a semi-automatic rifle. The attempted attack took place at around 7 am on Sunday in the commune of Blanc-Mesnil as several people were leaving a party. The witnesses say the man yelled “Allah hu Akbar!” and came at them with a knife and rifle. But he was quickly hit by a man driving a car, who is said to have acted out of instinct to stop the armed attacker, Le Parisien reports.

    President Emmanuel Macron’s security arrangements were brought into question on Wednesday after he was confronted by protesters calling for his resignation while strolling in a public garden on France’s national holiday. A group of anti-government “yellow vest” demonstrators spotted Macron and started following him, hurling abuse, as he and his wife Brigitte walked with bodyguards in the Tuileries Gardens near the Louvre Museum in Paris on Tuesday. In a video posted on the Gilets Jaunes Infos page on Facebook, what appears to be a few dozen protesters boo and shout «Macron demission!» (Macron resign) as they surround the presidential party,...
