France: Churches Vanish, Mosques Spring Up

0

from Gatestone Institute via Infowars:

“France is not a random space… fifteen centuries of history and geography determined its personality.”

“Inscribed in the depths of our landscape, the churches, the cathedrals and other places of pilgrimage give meaning and form to our patriotism. Let us demand our civil authorities to respect it”. Two years ago, the French journalist Denis Tillinac promoted this appeal, signed by dozens of French personalities, after some French imams requested the conversion of abandoned churches into mosques.

A year later, terrorists who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State assaulted the Catholic parishioners in the church of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, murdering an elderly priest, Father Jacques Hamel, at the foot of the altar. An outpouring of great emotion followed the most serious attack on a Christian symbol in Europe since the Second World War.

After that attack, the French authorities prevented many Islamist plots against the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Last June, police shot a Muslim man outside the cathedral after he tried to attack them with a hammer. Another terror cell of French women, guided by Islamic State commanders in Syria, had previously been foiled before they could attack Notre Dame. France’s most famous Catholic house of worship is a prime target for the jihadists. A t the same time, France has been dismissing the religious and cultural heritage of France’s Catholic patrimony, which, in a time of religious clashes and revival, should instead be protected as treasures and sources of strength.

 

Last month, around the time of the first anniversary of the murder of Father Hamel, a wrecking crew demolished the famed Chapel of Saint Martin in Sablé-sur-Sarthe, built in 1880-1886 and deconsecrated in 2015. A parking lot will replace the old Christian building. Photographs and videos posted on social networks, in scenes reminiscent of ISIS’ vandalism of churches in Mosul, show the cross being ripped from the church and the church destroyed. A few days earlier, in Rouen, not far from where Father Hamel had been killed, the local authorities ordered the destruction of the Saint-Nicaise Church’s presbytery, for “safety reasons“.

In 1907, the French state appropriated all church property, and now an increasing numbers of local authorities are deciding they cannot or will not renovate their churches. French mayors call this process “deconstruction“.

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Greenville, SC — Sean Theodore Kaiser, 40, had no criminal record and had never been in trouble with law enforcement before a disturbing interaction over an alleged shoplifting charge unfolded last month. According to Kaiser’s attorney, the 40-year-old was suffering from some sort of a mental health crisis and instead of getting the help he needed, a trigger happy cop showed up and shot his innocent mother.

Enough Is Enough: If You Really Want to Save Lives, Take Aim at Government Violence

by John W. Whitehead, Rutherford Institute:

It is often the case that police shootings, incidents where law enforcement officers pull the trigger on civilians, are left out of the conversation on gun violence. But a police officer shooting a civilian counts as gun violence. Every time an officer uses a gun against an innocent or an unarmed person contributes to the culture of gun violence in this country.”—Journalist Celisa Calacal

Enough is enough.

That was the refrain chanted over and over by the thousands of demonstrators who gathered to protest gun violence in America.

Enough is enough.

We need to do something about the violence that is plaguing our nation and our world.

Enough is enough.

Trump: America Will Never Be a Socialist Country…But Is It?

0

by Jake Macaulay, Freedom OutPost:

Among his ardent supporters, President Donald Trump’s recent State of the Union speech has been hailed as a masterpiece. Particularly praised by pundits is his dramatic declaration that the United States will never be a socialist country.

This remark was a pointed rebuke of his political opponents, including Senator Bernie Sanders, to whom the television cameras immediately panned.

Some are suggesting that this sound byte might be remembered historically.

Fed’s Obsession With The Stock Market Reveals The Truth: They’re Terrified Of What’s Coming

from Silver Doctors:

Throughout 2018 Fed Chair Powell maintained that he was focused EXCLUSIVELY on normalizing policy, and then came the stock market meltdown…

by Graham Summers of Gains, Pains, & Capital

In the last two months every single Fed Hawk has given up on normalization.

Every. Single. One.

Throughout 2018 Fed Chair Powell maintained that he was focused EXCLUSIVELY on normalizing Fed policy by:

1)   Reducing its Balance Sheet to pre-crisis levels of ~$1 trillion, a whopping $3.5 trillion lower than the $4.5 trillion it was when Powell took the helm at the Fed.

POLICE ADMIT PLANTING GUNS AND DRUGS IN CARS, LAUGH ABOUT IT

0

from libertyfight:

This is a series of older but noteworthy stories from Huntington Beach, CA. The story was originally broke by OC WEEKLY, and was then followed up by the mainstream LA TIMES and ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, which resulted in direct admissions by police. Here are the 3 articles in sequence, as well as some links to more recent admitted examples of cops planting evidence. This is why you should never, ever, consent to a warrantless search of yourself or your vehicle. Also, record all interactions with police if possible.

With a horrified suspect watching, Huntington Beach police planted evidence – a loaded revolver- in the man’s car during a DUI accident investigation in January, the Weekly has learned. The controversial revelation is not now in dispute although cops, prosecutors and city bureaucrats attempted to keep the incident a secret by sealing records and stalling discovery of related documents.

Despite those efforts, the gun incident became an issue during an obscure misdemeanor trial last week at Orange County’s West Court in Westminster. Police officers were forced to admit under oath that a snub-nosed handgun had been tossed like a Frisbee about four feet into the trunk of a Hyundai belonging to Tom Cox, the suspect. The loaded gun bounced twice and slammed up against the driver’s side of the car’s trunk. No bullets were discharged.

Brian Knorr, the uniformed officer who threw the weapon, lowered the trunk lid with the gun inside and stepped back, allegedly waiting for an unsuspecting fellow officer to find it during a search, according to testimony. The officer assigned to search the vehicle eventually located the gun and, startled, turned to Cox holding the revolver in both hands. This officer stared at Cox, who began to panic at the scenario of a weapons charge. Knorr walked over, “elbowed that cop and took the gun back,” said Cox.

Laughter erupted.

Deputy Public Defender Melani Bartholomew, who represented Cox, asked Officer Dave Wiederin on the witness stand if he and at least six other officers who were present at the crime scene had laughed in front of Cox when the gun was retrieved.

Right here ought to give anyone and everyone pause as to whether or not the truth of the New Zealand shooting is being told or not.  When you have internet infrastructure along with Australia threatening your platform, which competes with state-controlled YouTube, for simply allowing users to post videos related to the New Zealand shooting, you know something isn’t right.  Yet, this is exactly what has happened to Mike Adams’ video platform, Brighteon.

USA: from Republic to Democracy

0

by Hugo Salinas Price, Plata:

In 1750, the population of the thirteen colonies of England in North America was 2,148,000.

By the 1670’s, collection of taxes owed to the British Crown by settlers in North America had become problematic, as registered in his “Diary” by John Evelyn.

By 1775, the collection of taxes to be paid by the Americans involved resistance by gunfire on their part.

In January 1776, Thomas Paine published a piece with the title “Common Sense”. Paine was a brilliant writer and a firebrand for Revolution with the same objectives and the same mentality as the French revolutionaries of 1789.  Among his revolutionary proposals, his call for Independence from Great Britain was massively successful, and gained the support of practically everyone in the 13 colonies; Paine’s idea of Independence was the great motivator of the men who carried out the separation of the Colonies from Great Britain.

Proposal for a One World Government Being Floated

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

The former Prime Minister Gordon Brown has urged world leaders to create a temporary form of global government to tackle the twin medical and economic crises caused by the Coronavirus. He is no fool. He knows once there is the formation of anything pretended to be “temporary” it exists forever. Why are these people so intent upon trashing our freedoms and converting the world into an authoritarian paradise for them?
