The Future Of Europe

The Future Of Europe

Update: Macron wins.  It hangs in the balance, if we’re to believe media reports. Even if the outcome is not that portentous, the showdown between Macron and Le Pen is pivotal to the future of France itself. Apparently, turnout has decreased dramatically, with supporters of defeated candidates Melenchon and Fillon abstaining from voting. Follow the...

No Rest For The Wicked (French Terror Attack)

Update: The Islamic State has claimed responsibility.  Violent Islamists apparently demonstrate their civic pride by opening fire on crowds of infidels. France 24 has the details.
