A horrific historic and cultural loss. The 850 year old architectural masterpiece is a central monument to the Catholic faith. A spokesman said the entire wooden frame of the cathedral has come down, and the vault of the edifice could be threatened too. ‘Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame,’ Notre Dame spokesman […]
So goes France. So goes Western Europe.
‘The inferno cannot be stopped’: Fire chiefs say blaze ravaging Notre Dame cathedral is out of control after spire COLLAPSES and the entire roof of the stunning 850-year-old building burns to ashes
Officials in Paris said a large operation had been launched in an attempt to bring the raging fire under control
Pictures from around the city posted on social media showed flames licking up Notre Dame’s famous spire
The fire was first reported at 5.50pm (GMT) on Monday and the building was evacuated soon afterwards
Authorities say there were no deaths from the fire although declined to comment on the number of injuries
My guess is that renovation-related welding (or something) sparked the fire in an attic. My guess is that this is also a symbol of what the likes of Macron, Merkel, and other globo trash have done to France and the West. The structure should not be rebuilt in any way until the French nation is fully restored.
Dieu sauver France!
It’s time to dispense with the hateful rhetoric of the National Fire Association (NFA) and to finally have a national discussion about fire violence. Heck, it’s time to ban fire. Ban it before something else like this happens.
Ten people including a baby have died in a fire at an eight-storey building in south-western Paris, officials say.
More than 30 people – including six firefighters – were injured. One person is in a serious condition.
Fifty people were evacuated by ladders from the blaze in the upmarket 16th arrondissement.
Investigators believe the fire – one of the most deadly in the French capital in years – was possibly started deliberately.
A woman detained earlier by police is no longer being questioned and, after undergoing medical and behavioural tests, has been admitted to the psychiatric infirmary of the Paris police, media reports quote the Paris prosecutor as saying.
The line about the crazy woman is bull. The fire did this. Fire control works. That’s why they haven’t had a fire in Atlantis for over 4,000 years.
But, just a part, the spark maybe. The war raging in the streets in France is the product of popular anger over many things. Chief among them is the early tenure of the bankster batman and Oedipus Rex weirdo, Emmanuel Macron.
Macron, in Argentina for a G20 summit, said he would convene ministers to discuss the crisis upon his return on Sunday. Prime Minister Edouard Philippe cancelled a trip to Poland.
“We are in a state of insurrection, I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Jeanne d’Hauteserre, the mayor of Paris’ 8th district, near the Arc de Triomphe.
The popular rebellion erupted out of nowhere on Nov. 17 and has spread quickly via social media, with protesters blocking roads across France and impeding access to shopping malls, factories and some fuel depots.
On Saturday, some targeted the Arc de Triomphe, chanting “Macron Resign” and scrawling on the facade of the towering 19th-century arch: “The yellow vests will triumph.”
Addressing a news conference in Buenos Aires, Macron said no cause justified the looting of stores, attacks on the security forces or torching of property. The violence, he said, had nothing to do with the peaceful expression of legitimate grievances.
“I will always respect differences. I will always listen to opposition, but I will never accept violence,” Macron said.
Protesters smashed the windows of a newly opened flagship Apple Store and luxury boutiques of Chanel and Dior, where they daubed the slogan “Merry Mayhem” on a wooden board.
Close to the Place Vendome, Christmas trees decorating the streets were upended, piled in the middle of an avenue and set ablaze, prompting chanting from scores of protesters.
Order appeared to have been restored late in the evening, although small groups were still at odds with police near the Champs Elysees.
Authorities said violent far-right and far-left groups had infiltrated the yellow vests movement. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said most of those arrested were regular protesters who had been egged on by the fringe groups.
The protests began as a backlash against Macron’s fuel tax hikes, but have tapped into a vein of deep dissatisfaction felt towards the 40-year-old’s economic reforms, which many voters feel favour the wealthy and big business.
Yeah. Someone mentioned something about those “reforms” around the last election: “Maybe once a Rothschild servant isn’t always.” Maybe it is.
The good news is that, in the face of this leaderless uprising of the real French people, Oedipus sits at what? a 20% approval rating. There’s mild hope he could depart early. Hope for the future.
Vous auriez voté Le Pen.
Oedipus with some nouveau French supporters.
Wrath of Sadiq Khan really should head south through the Chunnel. Had he been around the other day he might have convinced an ISIS fighter that there is never a reason to have a knife.
The Islamic State has released a posthumous video featuring the knifeman who carried out a deadly terror attack in Paris on Saturday.
20-year-old Khamzat Asimov, who arrived in France as a refugee from war-torn Chechnya, launched a nine-minute lethal knife rampage through the centre of Paris.
Asimov murdered one man and severely wounded four others – including a Chinese and Luxembourg citizen – in the attacks close to the historic Opera Garnier, in the city centre.
Nobody tell Alyssa Milano – she’s a little
hypocritical sensitive about the subject – but the NRA was nowhere around this (or any other) crime scene. Come to think of it, a few guns in the right hands might have saved a life. One notes that the police who shot the terrorist to death did so with guns. Interesting. #NoRA?
As French as Creme Brulee. Daily Mail.
Word has it Milano and Young Hogg will go on CNN with Khan to discuss this latest NRA-motivated school shooting.
As with any terrorist attack this attacker was previously known to police. He was even in a database! Probably something about the NRA and knives.
The lesson to learn here, dear friends, isn’t about immigration or situational awareness or the necessity of concealed carry. No. It’s that you can just get by with a plastic spork. Know your place, plebs.
Ils t’ont déclaré la guerre. Reste fort. Rendre le marteau fier!
Pour les Français. (English below).
En 2015, l’Etat islamique a brutalement assassiné l’Américain James Foley, en Syrie je crois. En novembre 2015, les agents de l’ISIS à Paris ont mené des attaques encore plus brutales contre les parisiens. Les attaques du Bataclan, et al, 130 personnes assassiner, des centaines d’autres blessés. La diversité avec l’accent de la partie DIE.
En réponse aux attentats de Paris, Marne Le Pen, réellement française et fière, a posté des photos du meurtre de Foley sur Twitter. Elle assimilait les deux attaques et critiquait la politique française en matière de réfugiés et d’immigration.
Maintenant, elle fait face à des accusations:
Les procureurs français ont déposé jeudi des accusations préliminaires contre Marine Le Pen pour avoir tweeté des images brutales de la violence de l’État islamique.
Le procureur de la banlieue parisienne de Nanterre a déclaré que des accusations avaient été portées pour «distribution d’images violentes». Si l’affaire est finalement jugée et condamnée, Le Pen pourrait être condamné à trois ans de prison et 75 000 euros (90 000 dollars) bien.
Les tweets de Le Pen de décembre 2015 ont montré des exécutions par des extrémistes de l’EI, y compris le meurtre du reporter américain James Foley. Elle les a postés à la suite des attentats de novembre 2015 contre Paris, accusant le gouvernement de ne pas en faire assez pour protéger la France.
Le Pen a déclaré jeudi à la chaîne de télévision BFM “que cela visait clairement à me faire taire. Pourtant je ne serai pas réduit au silence “. Le Pen a déclaré qu’elle considérerait une éventuelle condamnation comme une “médaille de patriotisme et de défense du peuple français”.
Je l’aime, ne serait-ce que pour son héroïsme. Mais peut-être, juste peut-être, c’est déplacé.
N’importe quel pays qui voudrait importer la sauvagerie subira les conséquences, refusera d’élire quelqu’un qui combattra et renversera les tragédies, et poursuivra alors cette femme héroïque pour avoir osé tirer directement la vérité analogue … pourrait ne pas mériter d’exister plus .
Maintenant, il est tout à fait probable que Mme Le Pen, un autre Le Pen, ou un autre moderne Charles Martel se lèvera dans le prochain cycle électoral ou deux et sauver la France. Mais cela instaure un précédent horrible.
Et, en faisant abstraction des lois, cela ne se limite pas à la France. Quelque chose à quoi penser. Peut-être sans Tweets.
Americans, English, et al, take note:
In 2015 ISIS brutally murdered American James Foley, in Syria I believe. In November of 2015 ISIS agents in Paris carried out even more brutal attacks against the people of Paris. The Bataclan attacks, et al, 130 people murdered, hundreds more injured. Diversity with the emphasis of the DIE part.
In response to the Paris attacks Marine Le Pen, actually French and proud, posted pictures of the Foley murder on Twitter. She was equating the two attacks and criticizing French refugee and immigration policy.
Now, she faces charges:
French prosecutors filed preliminary charges Thursday against Marine Le Pen for tweeting brutal images of Islamic State violence.
The prosecutor’s office in the Paris suburb of Nanterre said the charges were issued for “distribution of violent images.” If the case eventually reaches trial and she’s convicted, Le Pen could face up to three years in prison and a 75,000-euro ($90,000) fine.
Le Pen’s December 2015 tweets showed executions by IS extremists, including the killing of American reporter James Foley. She posted them in the wake of the November 2015 IS attacks on Paris, accusing the government of not doing enough to protect France.
Le Pen told BFM television Thursday “it’s clearly aimed at silencing me. Yet I will not be silenced”. Le Pen said she would consider a potential conviction as a “medal of patriotism and defense of the French people.”
I love her, if only for her heroism. But maybe, just maybe, it’s misplaced.
Any country that would willingly import savagery, suffer the consequences, refuse to elect someone who would fight and reverse the tragedies, and then prosecute said heroic woman for daring to draw direct analogous truth from the matter… might not deserve to exist any more.
Now it’s entirely likely that Mrs. Le Pen, another Le Pen, or some other modern day Charles Martel will rise up in the next electoral cycle or two and save France. But this institutes a horrible precedent.
And, varying laws aside, it’s not limited to France. Something to think about. Maybe without Tweets.
La diversité. Criminel. Obtenez-le directement. / Diversity. Criminal. Get it straight.
I’m not aware of the IRA ever attacking Paris. ISIS does and did again today: Hammer-Wielding Jihadi hammered by police bullets.
French media cited a source close to the inquiry as saying the injured assailant claimed to be a “soldier of the Caliphate”, presumed to be a reference to Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).
Come to think of it, the IRA never attacked Canada either. Guess who did? Also today.
These were small attacks, mere pin-pricks. 10,000 little pin-pricks punctuated by the occasional massacre, train bombing, or multiple jet strikes on skyscrapers.
It probably won’t make the news but AS ALWAYS the authorities in Paris and in Toronto were already aware of the assailants. Always.
Oh, and that fake indignation crap wasted no time in manifesting itself either.
***My short no-article on Reality “Crossfit” Winner (Real Name) garnered ridiculous interest today. No quite viral. Maybe bacterial. Thanks. I have a theory a-forming about the whole case. I think I shall keep that to myself. It also flashed through my mind to pay her attorney a visit and ask a few questions. Or even her. I know where she is and could easily get in. Not that she would tell me the truth of what transpired in Belize between her and her actual superiors. No matter.
Friends, yesterday I made a mistake in my haste to differentiate one ISIS terrorist from another. There are so many and I was relying on the word of ISIS itself. My apologies.
Then, I identified the (latest) Parisian shooter as one Abu Yousif, the “Belgian” (likely from Flemish parts), and previously convicted murderer. I now think he was another terrorist entirely.
Today we learned the actual ISIS shooter was a Karim Cheurfi, a separate piece of excrement altogether. He’s a “Frenchman”. And he is no murderer (or wasn’t until yesterday). Rather, he has only been arrested for trying to murder people and for threatening to kill police officers – earlier this year. Or way or another, one name or another, they are ALWAYS known beforehand. Every. Single. Time.
Loyal “Frenchman” Karim Cheurfi, seen here with fashionable human shield accessory. The Sun.
Sorry about the confusion, which I note, was rampant in the media at large – hard to sort stuff out when the
7.62 diversity is flying.
What’s in a name? Good riddance!
