Building on the news that London has displaced New York in knife and gun murders (despite the gun control thing):
Hospital staff compare the situation in The Great Wen to that of an Afghan war zone.
The shock comments made Thursday morning come after two more men were killed overnight, a couple of days after another night of violence saw a boy, 16, stabbed to death and a 17-year-old girl shot in a “drive by”.
Wednesday night’s killings, both in Hackney, East London, brought the death toll from suspected murder in the capital to 50 so far this year, pulling away from New York City, which London overtook at the weekend.
Dr. Mark Griffiths, the lead surgeon at Barts Health NHS Trust in East London, said that knife and gun wounds had moved from a “niche” part of his job to a daily chunk of his workload, and a growing number of victims were “children”.
“Some of my military colleagues have described their practice here as similar to being at [Camp] Bastion,” Dr Griffiths told the Today programme on BBC Radio 4.
“We used to look after people in their twenties. Now people are often in their mid to late teens and children in school uniforms are being admitted under our care with knife and gun wounds.”
So, how’s that near total gun control working out, England? Gun wounds require guns just as civilization requires the civilized. Can’t have the one without the other.
The outlander Mayor finally responded to the rising, predictable violence:
“The Mayor is shocked and angered by the violent deaths on the streets of London this year.
“He is heartbroken that so many of those taken have been young lives – and his thoughts are with their friends and family at this difficult time.
“The safety of Londoners is his number one priority.
Anger and heartbreak are understandable. How could this all come as a shock to any cognizant individual?
Saaaaaaaafety… Maybe freedom should be the number one priority? Then, second, homogeneity? Somewhere along the way safety might take care of itself.
Nah. Ignore the guns. And certain factors demographic. Blame the knives. “Surrender your knife save a life!“ #knifecontrol.
It’s no longer possible to even make this crap up… Downtrend.
Something in all this reminded me of a very recent Christopher DeGroot piece at Taki’s Mag: The Education of America. Kind of fits (without need for a separate column…). One would think men would learn. They had better.
Get with the social justice, or else, says Larry “John Stewart Mill” Fink:
“Society is demanding that companies, both public and private, serve a social purpose,” Fink wrote. “To prosper over time, every company must not only deliver financial performance, but also show how it makes a positive contribution to society. Companies must benefit all of their stakeholders, including shareholders, employees, customers, and the communities in which they operate.”
Fink said BlackRock would ramp up its investor-stewardship initiative, started in 2011 to favor engaging with companies and their management over proxy voting. The stewardship team will double in size over the next three years under the new leadership of Barbara Novick, a vice chairman who helped found BlackRock, Fink said.
He posed some questions; so I, as CEO of perrinlovett.me (one of them there private companies), answer with:
What role do we play in the community?
My blog (mine, not BlackRock’s) is a town crier for the West and for cigar awareness.
How are we managing our impact on the environment?
In general, I’m not. However, as a digital service, I try to harm no trees. And I have that offer to adopt or foster the first polar bear I meet as it flees the
global warming climate change new ice age…
Are we working to create a diverse workforce?
No. Just trying to save some corner of civilization from it.
Are we adapting to technological change?
Actually thinking of reverting to a manual typewriter. Might need the polar bear’s input first. Can they talk?
Are we providing the retraining and opportunities that our employees and our business will need to adjust to an increasingly automated world?
I see your man-hating, child-maiming robots and AI. Bring ’em.
Are we using behavioral finance and other tools to prepare workers for retirement, so that they invest in a way that that will help them achieve their goals?
What, in the Name of God, is “behavioral finance?” Sounds like command and control communism to me. The bear will hate it.
I doubt these guys can even read, let alone type.
Mind your own business, Bub.
Trump set off a firestorm, yesterday, with comments, or a question (which he kind of disavows now) about where our immigrants come from. I thought the question articulate, if a bit vulgar, and if he asked it.
Anyway, the answer to this “why” is the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965, one of the most evil legislative items ever foisted upon the people. Vox Day on the origins and effects:
Ted Kennedy illustrates why third-generation immigrants should not ever be permitted to govern or even vote in his deceitful argument for the 1965 immigration act.
First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same…
Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset… Contrary to the charges in some quarters, [the bill] will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and deprived nations of Africa and Asia…
In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think… The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs.
They have to go back. They ALL have to go back. It is no longer up for debate. The post-1965 mass immigration policy was entirely based on lies and misrepresentations, and 50 years on it is clear that global migration has destroyed America, the largest invasion in human history has severely weakened the United States, and if a significant portion of the post-1965 immigrants and their descendants are not repatriated in the next decade, they will cause the complete collapse of the Union, violent ethnic conflict, and a civil war of unprecedented magnitude. At this point, the Yugoslav option may be the best possible outcome; the Czechoslovak option appears to be already beyond reach.
Listen to the warning of an American Indian. The dirt is not magic and it will not remain yours once you permit foreigners to settle on it. And rest assured that your descendants, if you have any that survive, will curse your incredible stupidity and short-sightedness, which is of epic historical magnitude.
The media, the UN, and other vehement anti-Westerners have taken the novel (never heard before!) approach of calling Trump a “racist” and a “Nazi.” Hmmm.
Now, other truths aside, here’s an examination of what passes for the white, European natives of modern America:
Yeah, read that again and ponder how much worse it could actually get. It can (and will) get worse, but Lordy…. ‘Murica…
It’s win or lose.
Right now, the losers have it, at least in France. The French decided to forego the pro-French candidate and are even now beginning to reap their rewards. Macron is making the post-Charlie Hebdo temporary emergency police powers permanent.
Emmanuel Macron very quickly made it official: He will introduce a bill which will transform extraordinary state of emergency powers into regular police practice.
According to Le Monde, which saw a leaked copy of the bill: “…almost all the measures of the state of emergency will be found in common law.”
What this means is that the post-Charlie Hebdo war hysteria has not only never stopped, but will have become the new, permanent normal: Anyone can be arrested, searched and detained with just a simple accusation. Judges simply need to be “informed”; police have carte blanche.
So…when can I start referring to France as an “authoritarian state” without getting edited?
Diversity is our strength. It is also a permanent police state. Freedoms lost and the enemy still among them. Nice.
A better, more realistic, and far prettier politician, Rome’s mayor, Virginia Raggi, is screaming for a halt to the invasion. At least a temporary halt.
The mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, has asked the Italian government to temporarily halt immigration to the city.
In a letter reportedly sent to Paola Basilone, the prefect of Rome, Raggi (pictured) called for a “moratorium” on new arrivals and said: “I find it impossible, as well as risky, to think up further accommodation structures.”
The mayor, a member of the anti-establishment Five Star Movement political party, explained she was making the request because of the “strong migratory presence” in Rome and “the continued influx of foreign citizens”.
It’s not clear how long the temporary ban, reported by thelocal.it, would last.
According to the most recent figures published in Italy on January 1, 2016, there were 364,632 foreign-born people registered as living in Rome, which has a metropolitan population of about 4.35 million. Foreigners represent about eight per cent of its population.
According to the 2016 census, Italy has a population of about 60.5 million. However, it has experienced a steady flow of African and Middle Eastern migration from Libya in recent years, almost certainly blurring the true picture of how many people live in the country.
Figures released by the National Institute for Statistics in Italy (Istat) today state that more than five million people living in the country are foreign-born – equivalent to about 8.3 percent of the national population.
A temporary ban would be a good temporary start until a permanent ban and deportations can be arranged.
Yes, Virginia, there is a problem. And unless your government and others on the Continent halt it, it is going to overwhelm and destroy Christendom. And soon. The migration is just getting started.
The migrants pouring into Europe have changed routes: the crossing between Turkey and Greece is practically closed, but ever greater numbers are risking their lives to cross the Mediterranean between Libya and Italy.
A criminal industry has flourished, while the European Union has beefed up its border agency Frontex to try to check the mass migration.
Frontex is at once both good cop and bad cop, rescuing migrants from sinking boats but also dropping them off at welcome centres where they risk being sent back home.
Frontex head Fabrice Leggeri summed up the situation in an interview with AFP.
– Who are the migrants? –
On the shores of Greece there are now “80 or 100 people who arrive every day, whereas we had 2,500 a day” before the agreement with Turkey, said Leggeri.
Among those who arrive from Africa via the central Mediterranean and Libya, whose number is up by more than 40 percent, most come from west Africa. They are Senegalese, Guineans, Nigerians. In 2016 they totalled 180,000.
They are mainly economic migrants and include many young men but also families and young women. Nigerian women are often exploited as prostitutes in Europe.
Young men of fighting age, a few prostitutes, and more than a few Jihadists. A lovely, police state-inducing additive. There’s a supply of about 700 MILLION! who would happily invade Europe tomorrow, free transportation allowed. It must stop. The invasion must cease and the existing intruders must be sent home.
…may be as simple as a law and a sign reading, “No Invaders Allowed.” If that fails…
Bushmaster / Alliant.
Sink the boats or sink the Continent.
And, now, for a closer look at Rome’s leading lady…
Mayor Virginia Raggi. Now that’s a politician I could support. Getty.
Andrew Martin came up with a list of ways to tell if you’re stuck in the pseudo-real modern world. Find the list at Modern Collective (via LewRockwell here). I decided to spice things up and answer the twenty questions or points (in rather short form). Herein I copied the points and italicized my answers after each one.
1. You spend most of your time devoted to paying off a mortgage rather than enjoying life.
I pay a lot of bills – most I’d rather not. Things change.
2. You can’t wait for the weekend to come.
Every day is the weekend (or weekday) for me. It’s nice.
3. You judge your success by the car you drive, the suburb you live in, and the size of the house you own.
I used to but I’m free now – sort of.
4. The wealthy are rewarded for plundering the earth while those trying to save it are ridiculed.
Yes and no.
5. You work in a job you don’t enjoy, thinking the money you earn will offset the misery of working in a job or career you are not passionate about.
My “job” is my passion and visa versa.
6. You think that by a taking a pill your ills will be cured.
No. A cigar, maybe. A pill, no. *Note: I just, today, put the exercise routine into overdrive. There is some … er … chemical stimulation involved. More on that later.*
7. You think that someone focused on eating healthy, organic fresh foods is weird, while eating highly processed, nutrient devoid foods is normal.
We, the healthy, are out of place these days, true; there’s nothing normal about the slow death of fast food even if it has become the norm.
8. You think buying stuff will make you happy.
Only if I can read, smoke, or drink it.
9. You watch the news on television and think this is the truth.
10. You’re more focused on your favourite sports team than concerned about the natural world and environment on which you depend for survival.
No. I live outside the cave.
11. You believe growth and the development of the economy is a good thing and that globalization creates jobs.
Yes and no.
12. You conform with the status quo and never question why things are done.
Show me a rule and I immediately start thinking of ways to break it.
13. You think traffic congestion, pollution, and sensory overload are part of normal everyday life.
For the masses, yes; for me, no.
14. You think there is a difference between political parties and that they will enact real change.
Hahahahahahaha!!! Good one.
15. You think there are terrorists around every corner and they are a threat to you and your community, despite the fact that you have 150 times more chances of being hit by lightning than being involved in a terrorist attack.
Woah! I get a lot of traffic from exposing the war. I do also acknowledge it is a byproduct and relatively easily cured.
16. You think eating genetically modified food and eating fruit and vegetables sprayed with pesticides is OK.
Wash ’em and it should be okay – on the 100 year average.
17. You think the mainstream media is independent and unbiased.
Stop! My sides hurt.
18. You think constant distraction through the media such as sport, trivial affairs, and celebrity gossip is news.
Whenever I stoop to hear some BS celebrity nonsense (rare) my first thought is always, “Okay, what are THEY doing now”.
19. You think living next to a cell tower is cool because you get better reception.
For me this is a slight (very slight) convenience. The rest of you should read up on EM fields and cancer.
20. You wait in line for the next release of the latest technological gadget
I don’t wait in lines and (despite making a living with it) I hate technology.
That’s what I got. I do not live in the Matrix, per say. However, I can visit it at will and frequently do – for now.
Try this quiz for yourself. In the original article some solutions to modern madness are offered. A few of these border on the … hippy-ish. Not to worry. As long as you’re aware of the problem, solutions will come along. Just know when to grab one.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m not going to watch TeeVee.
C’est un post spécial pour mes chers amis et lecteurs en France.
Demain peut être la date la plus importante pour la France ce siècle. L’élection présidentielle marque un tournant, d’une façon ou d’une autre, dans vos affaires et celles de l’Ouest en général.
En tant que qualification, je dois noter que je suis un non-électeur à principe, n’ayant pas voté dans plus de quatre ans. L’hypocrisie personnelle, oui, et l’un de mes différents défauts. Pourtant, mon expérience dans cette et d’autres questions civiques rend mon conseil, ici, d’autant plus important.
Il y a très peu de raisons de voter aux États-Unis. Ma nation est tombée ou tombe (peut-être les deux). Je pense que nous sommes plus près de «tombé»; Vous êtes en train de descendre vous-mêmes. C’est peut-être votre élection finale qui signifie réellement quelque chose. Si je vivais en France, je voterais – dans cette élection particulière.
Et, si je pensais que tout était déjà perdu, alors je ne me dérangerait pas avec ces mots.
La France, l’Europe et tout l’Occident sont sous l’invasion et les agressions par des forces infernales. Tu le sais. Vous ne devriez peut-être pas l’admettre ouvertement, mais vous le savez au moins. La migration non contrôlée en France par les peuples d’Afrique, du Moyen-Orient et de l’islam tourne rapidement votre terre dans une jungle du tiers monde.
Combien de centaines de vos concitoyens ont été assassinés par des criminels terroristes au cours des deux dernières années? Cette année? Cette semaine? Combien de milliers ou de millions d’entre vous vivent dans la peur? Pourquoi 60 000 soldats et la police sont-ils en alerte pour les élections de demain?
Les choses ne sont pas aussi mauvaises qu’elles le peuvent, ou comme elles seront dans un avenir pas trop lointain. Même dans le pire des cas, un nouveau véritable califat français, il y aurait encore de l’espoir pour la délivrance. Pourtant, ces problèmes sont les meilleurs, et plus pacifiquement, abordés maintenant. Et par “maintenant” je veux dire demain matin.
Marine Le Pen est le seul candidat qui est même prêt à discuter des problèmes d’invasion et de terrorisme étrangers. Pour sauver votre pays de devenir dangereux et incivilisé, vous devez l’élire. Ensuite, vous devez prier, elle agit selon ses déclarations et ses convictions.
Vous devez élire cette femme!
Mme Le Pen n’est pas parfaite, rien n’est certain, certainement personne ne cherchait un bureau supérieur. Mais elle représente un vrai choix, une différence, une dernière chance peut-être. Elle est la meilleure que vous avez sûrement. Choisissez Macron pour une légère amélioration des conditions … peut-être. Électionnez Fillon pour plus de la même chose. Électionnez Melechon pour plus de la même chose avec un talent soviétique.
Marine Le Pen est le seul choix. Électionnez-la maintenant. Au moins, envoyez-la à la finale du 7 mai; Alors, elle doit recevoir une majorité. Électionnez-la maintenant et si Dieu le veut, elle commencera à transformer la France en France. Tous les envahisseurs non-blancs et non-chrétiens doivent être expulsés – les criminels, les terroristes connus, les terroristes inconnus, les réfugiés – ils doivent tous revenir en arrière. La France est votre pays, pas le leur. Ils n’appartiennent pas, ils n’ont jamais appartenu, et ils n’appartiendront jamais.
Cela doit arriver pour votre propre bien, pour la sécurité, la civilité et pour la société cohésive. Il faut aussi que la sécurité de tous les acteurs soit impliquée, y compris les envahisseurs. Si rien ne l’est maintenant, et si l’histoire est un guide, la solution future sera brutale. Tours, deuxième partie.
Si Le Pen ne parvient pas à gagner, ou ne parvient pas à agir dans la victoire, alors vous devriez commencer la recherche d’un Charles Martel moderne. Vous en aurez besoin.
Votez Le Pen!
Sauvez la France!
Vive la France!
Vive la l’ouest!
Vive la liberté!
Yesterday, I remembered once reading about “white privilege” at Appalachian State University. All schools, it seems, have a horde of SJWs hell-bent on pointing out privilege and whining about it. I though this particular story was interesting, because Boone. The resident multi-culti association put a display in the student center attacking straight, white, Christian men – all the rage, don’t you know.
I checked with their “diverse” school website and got a good chuckle. It’s nice that these hateful but generally harmless people are no longer confined to padded rooms in a hospital.
It was Fred Reed’s take on the matter, yesterday that made me remember the App. State episode.
Look around your university. Who do you see taking the hard subjects–math, chemistry, physics, engineering, philosophy, computer science? Whites and Asians…right? Are they the kind of people who complain constantly about White Privilege? You may notice a pattern here: Those who can, do. The rest bitch and moan.
How about your own classes? You are not blind. If you think for yourself, you can see who the smart ones are, and who are those getting a free ride. Usually, a free ride at your expense. Your professors will not want you to notice this either. The question is whether you have been so profoundly brainwashed that you cannot see the obvious.
Being very young, you will probably have little idea of the vast body of knowledge, won over millenia, behind all the things you take for granted. At your age, I didn’t either. It takes years to get a handle on things. It will be harder for you because your universities will discourage you from looking around you. But glance at the very partial list below (I paste from an ancient column of mine) to get an idea of what the white race has done over the centuries. You will never have heard of many of these things. And that is curious. While your nose is being rubbed into the virtues, often real, sometimes imagined, of other groups, your own race is seldom motioned except to revile it.
Euclidean geometry. Parabolic geometry. Hyperbolic geometry. Projective geometry. Differential geometry. Calculus: Limits, continuity, differentiation, integration. Physical chemistry. Organic chemistry. Biochemistry. Classical mechanics. The indeterminacy principle. The wave equation. The Parthenon. The Anabasis. Air conditioning. Number theory. Romanesque architecture. Gothic architecture. Information theory. Entropy. Enthalpy. Every symphony ever written. Pierre Auguste Renoir. The twelve-tone scale. The mathematics behind it, twelfth root of two and all that. S-p hybrid bonding orbitals. The Bohr-Sommerfeld atom. The purine-pyrimidine structure of the DNA ladder. Single-sideband radio. All other radio. Dentistry. The internal-combustion engine. Turbojets. Turbofans. Doppler beam-sharpening. Penicillin. Airplanes. Surgery. The mammogram. The Pill. The condom. Polio vaccine. The integrated circuit. The computer. Football. Computational fluid dynamics. Tensors. The Constitution. Euripides, Sophocles, Aristophanes, Aeschylus, Homer, Hesiod. Glass. Rubber. Nylon. Skyscrapers. The piano. The harpsichord. Elvis. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. (OK, that’s nerve gas, and maybe we didn’t really need it.) Silicone. The automobile. Really weird stuff, like clathrates, Buckyballs, and rotaxanes. The Bible. Bug spray. Diffie-Hellman, public-key cryptography, and RSA. Et cetera at great length.
If you talk about these things on campus, you will be called a “white supremacist.” This is silly. But calling you a racist is an effective way of making you shut up. Do you want to be supreme over anyone? I do not. Yet other races are proud of their achievements. Why should you not be? Ask where they would be without electricity, sterile water, telephones and–well, just about everything.
Fred points out that bragging is inappropriate – as is taking abuse for nothing. A little humble pride in achievement goes a long way. Maybe the others will be motivated to get off their low horse and excel. Maybe…
Nothing to see here. Just mean, old, white men at work, exploring the universe. Fred / NASA.
Of course, if the Apple State-ling Gang was really serious about doing something to terminate
modern civilization white society, then they would join this yahoo in Minnesota.
Or, better yet, they could support these causes.
Or they could just shut the hell up. I suspect that is the native reaction around Boone. But, of course, I think, suspect,and type from privilege. Wonderful, wonderful, white privilege.
Another set of best/worst places just came out.
Mercer, the world’s largest human resources consulting company, has recently published its 19th annual rankings, naming the world’s best and the worst cities to live in.
For the eighth year in a row, Vienna took the top spot on Mercer’s chart of 230 cities. In fact, most of the best cities on the list can be found in Western Europe — namely Switzerland and Germany. Baghdad was named as the worst place for quality of living, being put at the very bottom of the list. One of the largest cities of the Middle East with a population of nine million people, Baghdad is the least safe city in the world with its constant terrorist attacks and high levels of kidnapping and banditry.
This year, infrastructure was ranked separately. According to Mercer, “city infrastructure plays an important role when multinationals decide where to establish locations abroad and send expatriate workers. Easy access to transportation, reliable electricity, and drinkable water are all important considerations when determining hardship allowances based on differences between a given assignee’s home and host locations.”
Other essential factors include: consumer goods, economic environment, housing, medical and health considerations, natural environment, political and social environment, public services and transport, recreation, education and socio-cultural environment.
Mercer / Sputnik.
I’m not big on the slide presentation but the juxtapositions are interesting. The top cities are all either European or Euro-centric. The worst are all African or Afro-centric. This, in part, explains the desperate immigration/invasion trends and the”refugees”. It also suggests the potential dangers of importing people from places they ruined into better places (that the can also ruin). There is no magic dirt. Additionally, this also subtly speaks against the general idea of equality. All people and all places, it turns out, may not be equal after all.
“Mixed” cities do not appear on the list at either end – looking at you, America. Food for thought. If one thinks…
For some inexplicable reason voters in the Netherlands don’t feel 100% inclined, yet, to protect themselves or their culture. Yet. Geert W. suffered a setback on his way to becoming Prime Minister, for now. The Dutch will wake up sooner or later. Hopefully, sooner.
In the U.S., judges from Maryland to Hawaii continue to illegally obstruct lawful efforts to secure America’s borders and halt the in-flow of terrorists. They won’t succeed and they should be dealt with. Some foolishly cling to the idea that incompatible barbarians have some right to American education and research opportunities.
The academic interests of the Mohammedans reach far and wide. They feel it in Australia.
Teachers at a primary school in Sydney, Australia have been threatened with beheading and other violence from young Islamic students, prompting one of them to quit her job.
Students as young as those in Year 5, according to the Daily Telegraph, are making the violent threats and pressuring others to read the Koran at Punchbowl Public School in Sydney.
Documents given to the newspaper allege that three staff members have taken a leave of absence owing to stress, received counselling and been awarded compensation after bullying from Islamic students.
One female teacher reportedly quit her job after it got too much for her. She claims she quit after receiving death threats to her family from her year 5 and 6 students, with some saying they would behead her.
The teacher also said she made numerous complaints back in 2014 about the extraordinary behavior in the class. For example, she said, she was abused by students after she stopped them from hanging a Syrian flag in the classroom.
Perhaps these are the scholarly benefits sought by the Ninth Circuit – threatened decapitation over an alien flag. Culture. Diversity. Strength.
Of course, the subject school system is playing dumb: “see no jihad, hear no jihad, …”.
It’s getting harder to ignore the obvious in war-torn France. Citizens there, 60% of them, say they no longer feel safe in their own country.
The survey found that 93 per cent of French believe the threat of more terror attacks is high, and 71 per cent feel the security situation in France has got worse over the last five years.
More broadly, 59 per cent of those polled said they did not feel safe anywhere, with almost one in four (24 per cent) opting to “strongly agree” with the statement.
Reflecting the insecurity respondents said they felt, 69 per cent think the police and gendarmerie are understaffed, and the survey found the French overwhelmingly have a positive view of law enforcement.
The vast majority of respondents (88 per cent) believe France should deport foreigners sentenced to prison for serious offences, and 84 per cent want the country to create more prison places.
A slight majority (55 per cent) would like to see France exit the European Union’s open borders Schengen zone.
Don’t these cheese-eating bigots know these are the exact same kind of sentiments that elected the racist Donald Trump? A few more surveys like this and Marine le Pen will be their next President. Then they’ll have France for the French once more. And, then, where will they be? Not too diverse…
But the French have many, many good reasons to fear they are losing their nation. Shortly after the survey results were published yet another radical scholar attempted to bring the blessings of globalist, Satanic, multiculturalism to the infidels of Paris.
A convicted criminal with links to radical Islam has been shot dead at Paris Orly airport after trying to wrestle a soldier’s gun from her and fleeing into a McDonald’s.
Less than two hours earlier the man, identified by police sources as Zied B., had shot a female police officer in the head in a northern Paris suburb during a routine stop-and-search.
The man’s father and brother have been taken into custody, judicial sources have confirmed, and the attacks are being investigated by France’s anti-terrorism prosecutor.
After the police shooting in the suburb of Stains, at around 6.55am, the 39-year-old fled in a Renault Clio, which was found abandoned 11 miles away.
He then hijacked a woman’s Citroen Picasso at gunpoint, and this second car was later found parked at the airport.
Today’s incidents come as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit Paris, where they have met with victims of terrorism.
The man killed at the airport had previously been jailed for drug trafficking and authorities believe he was radicalised in prison.
He has not been formally identified, but was a homeless French national on the run from the authorities, according to police sources.
Even and William and Kate met with victims of the Bataclan and Nice attacks, more attacks unfolded. Not safe at the beach. Not safe on the sidewalk. Not safe in the theater. Not safe on the streets. Not safe in cars. Not safe in the airport. It seems that 60% may be on to something. The only good news, here, is that there is one less radical running loose.

It’s not just France, Australia, and the U.S. Every single country of the West is under assault. Barring a retreat into the terror-free, people-free, convenience-free forests and wilderness, there really are no places to run to nor to hide in these days.
The fleeing option removed, that only leaves fighting. Let’s get ready.
