Charlie Hebdo Insults Are Legal but a Politician is on Trial for Objecting to Overwhelming Muslim Immigration

If you are concerned about the cultural implications of Muslim immigration, the French government will prosecute you. On January 8 of this year our writers began posting about Charlie Hebdo and free speech. The reason for this was Islamic mass murder of a rather vile publication called Charlie Hebdo. Vile or not, they were killed for what they wrote and published and drew as cartoons. So the French public, Europe, and the Western world went on a giant collective rant of words and symbolic gestures Read more […]

Could France Give Edward Snowden Asylum because NSA Spied on Them?

Both the French media and a French politician have suggested granting Edward Snowden asylum in the wake of WikiLeaks revelations about NSA spying. When I posted about the WikiLeaks report that the NSA spied on French presidents, I didn’t think the rage of the French would mean too much. But now I’m wondering. According to the Intercept, French Justice Minister Christiane Taubira thinks National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange might be Read more […]

NSA Spying Now Causes Rift with France

How many other countries are going to hate us for our NSA spying? So far the responses of Brazil and Germany have really stood out. But now France is added to the list, thanks to more great work by Wikileaks. Consider the USA Today story, “France says U.S. must work to ‘repair’ trust after spy claims.” French President Francois Hollande on Wednesday said his government would “not tolerate” threats to its interests after WikiLeaks claimed the National Security Agency may have spied on three French Read more […]

French Legislature: Stores May Only Hold 2 Sales a Year

Stores have been forbidden by the French legislature from having more than 2 sales a year. The sales must not last more than six weeks. The news is bad but it is even worse when you learn that the only reason French stores have had “floating sales” in the last few years is because the French government gave them permission to do so in 2008. Imagine living in a country that is so hyper-regulated. According to this French (though written in English) news site: “France tells shops: No more Read more […]

France Tightens the Noose on the Populace because Terrorism

When France tightens the noose through controls and restrictions on the use of money, it is hurting ordinary citizens, not terrorists. A friend of the blog sent me this excellent newsletter article about new restrictions that the French government is imposing on the French. Nathan McDonald writes for Sprott Money under the headline, “France Moves in the Direction of Banning Cash.” One of his sources is a Reuter’s article, “France steps up monitoring of cash payments to fight ‘low-cost Read more […]

Why France Lost America, and Washington Will Lose It Too

Washington will lose because aloof arrogance destroys the ability to lead. My kids aren’t in the State Indoctrination Camps, we homeschool. I teach world history to homeschoolers every Friday as part of a local tutorial. I love history and firmly believe that even though history doesn’t repeat, it certainly rhymes. Which brings me to my point. Today I was teaching the future leaders of the free world about The French and Indian War. The book I use as a guide doesn’t give the real reason why Read more […]

You May Want to COEXIST, but Others Don’t

You can’t coexist with violent intolerance. “Coexist” is such a nice sentiment, and most of us have absolutely no problem living it out. Unfortunately, there are those who simply can’t tolerate the idea. Four Muslims in Porte Dorée (the Golden door), a ghetto east of Paris, beat artist Combo after he refused to take down his Coexist street art. Combo suffered a dislocated shoulder, bruises and a black eye. Thus, the headline at the Gateway Pundit: “French Artist’s Calls For Peace Read more […]

French Comedian Tells Joke; Gets Arrested

Who gets arrested and who doesn’t get arrested tells you France does not have free speech. So the reason, we were told, that Charlie Hebdo got to publish cartoons that mocked and offended religious believers, including Muslims, was because France has a tradition of free speech. So naturally, in response to the killings, the French government is working overtime to affirm free speech… …by arresting people for what they say. Here’s a headline from The Associated Press: “France Read more […]

Andrea Mitchell, Alleged Journalist, Despises Free Speech

Andrea Mitchell wants the French Ambassador to explain why it is legal to publish anti-Islamic satire. Andrea Mitchell, having been married for years to Alan Greenspan, going back to when he was the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, is an amazing embodiment of how establishment media is in bed with the government. And she happily demonstrates the problem. The Daily Caller reports, “Andrea Mitchell To French Ambassador: Why Are ‘Provocative’ Anti-Muslim Cartoons Permitted?” The host Read more […]

Islamic Terrorist Killings “Have Nothing to Do” with Islam?

The French president, Francois Hollande, declared that the Islamic terrorist killings are unrelated to “the Muslim Religion.” Can we really go any deeper into denial? Newser.com: “French Prez: Gunmen ‘Have Nothing to Do With Muslim Religion’” French President Francois Hollande gave a televised speech today urging his people to act with “vigilance and unity” following the Charlie Hebdo terror attacks, reports Euro News. The French “will not give in to fear and we are capable of Read more […]

Bill Mahar: Hundreds of Millions of Muslims Approve Paris Killings

Why are the remarks of Bill Mahar even considered controversial? I actually wonder if “hundreds of millions” is too high a number. But it is definitely in the millions and even tens of millions. Maybe he is right. Mahar, being an atheist, insults all religions in the video. Being a liberal he also displays a suffocating self-righteousness that is at least as bad as displayed by the worst religious believer. But the bad words are bleeped out: Raw Story reports: The comedian Read more […]

Mohammad Re-Enactors Do Murder Spree in France

When Muslims kill they are simply being Mohammad re-enactors, but the media will hide it. The attack in France was all over the news yesterday. I read the story from a Washington DC CBS affiliate: “Gunmen Kill At Least 12 In ‘Terrorist Attack’ At French Satirical Newspaper.” Three masked gunmen stormed the Paris offices of a satirical newspaper Wednesday, killing 12 people, including its editor, before escaping in a car. It was France’s deadliest postwar terrorist attack. CBS Read more […]
