President Macron’s protests against nationalism this weekend stand in stark contrast with the words of France’s WWII resistance leader and the man who would then become president: General Charles de Gaulle.
Speaking to his men in 1913, de Gaulle reminded them: “He who does not love his mother more than other mothers, and his fatherland more than other fatherlands, loves neither his mother nor his fatherland.”
This unquestionable invocation of nationalism reveals how far France has come in its pursuit of globalist goals, which de Gaulle described later in that same speech as the “appetite of vice.”
This Tuesday America takes an IQ test. Or perhaps we should say a common sense test. Or even more a test to see the degree to which it has been brainwashed.
This test has been going on for a week or two now in early voting in rather large numbers, but the results will be in, for the most part, late Tuesday night.
You would think that with all economic indicators at or near an all-time high, unemployment at an all-time low (notably for minorities and women), wages rising as they haven’t in years, the country at peace with the threat of evil doers from ISIS to North Korea on the wane, and an incredible, indeed unprecedented, number of presidential accomplishments in 20 months this election would be the proverbial no-brainer for voters.
President Donald Trump ridiculed far-left violent Antifa protesters alleging that they represent a broader Democratic Party-backed mob movement, in a Sunday afternoon campaign rally.
“To write off Trump’s message, or to see his voters as racist and deplorable, is to miss the point. It is not that the Democrats’ elite are geriatrics, though they certainly are; it is that they are too entrenched, too tone deaf and out of touch in myriad ways. The Clintons need to retire to discover the ambiguous pleasures of obscurity that the rest of us already know. Barack Obama is as eloquent as ever, and inspirational, but he needs to understand the dismay many of us feel when seeing him and his fellow Democrats taking money from big companies that outsource work and exploit foreign workers, all the while sucking up to celebrities.”
The very same may be said of Canada’s political class. Term limits, soon please.
President Trump ended a testy exchange with CBS correspondent Lesley Stahl by telling the reporter “I’m president and you’re not” in an interview that aired Sunday.
During the interview on “60 Minutes,” Stahl attempted to change the subject after Trump made a comment about media dishonesty, but the president clearly wanted to make a point about the media criticizing his administration for its child separation policy that had also taken place under former President Obama.
US President Donald Trump has accused climate change scientists of having a “political agenda” as he cast doubt on whether humans were responsible for the earth’s rising temperatures.
But Mr Trump also said he no longer believed climate change was a hoax.
The comments, made during an interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes, come less than a week after climate scientists issued a final call to halt rising temperatures.
The world’s leading scientists agree that climate change is human-induced (And we’re all gonna die unless we embrace the Eco-Luddite Way!).
If body language at a UN luncheon is any hint, Justin Trudeau is still in Donald Trump’s doghouse.
(Bloomberg) — The White House has drafted an executive order for President Donald Trump’s signature that would instruct federal antitrust and law enforcement agencies to open investigations into the business practices of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Facebook Inc. and other social media companies.
The order is in its preliminary stages and hasn’t yet been run past other government agencies, according to a White House official. Bloomberg News obtained a draft of the order.
“Setting fire to the ground,” a “major catastrophe,” bringing “new instability” are the headlines that have greeted Donald Trump’s unorthodox decisions over the past year. Withdrawing from UNESCO, moving the US Embassy, leaving the Iran deal and cutting funding to UNRWA and funding for Pakistan were seen as extreme decisions in the Middle East and around the world. Insofar as there is a “Trump Doctrine,” it has been to call this bluff.
In the mind-set of Trump and his team, the time has come for the United States to move quickly to reverse decades of foreign policy norms, ending the status quo, and ripping up what the previous administrations did.
Donald Trump is determined to build his border wall, even if he has to shut down the government to do it.
Whether Trump will shutter the federal government over funds for the border wall apparently depends entirely on what day of the week it is and who he is talking to.
South Africa has withdrawn its white farmland redistribution bill – six days after Donald Trump warned he was closely studying the situation.
The ruling African National Congress (ANC) said the bill passed by parliament in 2016 enabling the state to make compulsory purchases of land to redress racial disparities in land ownership needed further consideration.
It comes after Trump criticised the country’s land reform plans in a tweet that touched on the overwhelmingly white ownership of farmland in South Africa – one of the most sensitive issues in the country’s post-apartheid history
President Trump on Tuesday vowed to look into Google’s alleged bias against conservative media, writing on Twitter that it’s a “very serious situation” and “will be addressed.”
Former presidential lawyer Michael Cohen claimed he violated campaign finance law at the direction of President Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, while pleading guilty in a New York Court Tuesday.
President Trump on Saturday charged that social media is “totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices” and argued that the platforms should allow “good & bad” content online amid an ongoing debate over social media’s role in policing content online.
“Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!” he said.
Multiple members of the progressive protest group who gathered outside the White House Sunday threatened President Trump with physical violence and murder.
The Secret Service tells The Daily Caller they are now “aware” of the threats and are “investigating” the progressive protesters.
