Trump to visit Paris in November to
commemorate 100th anniversary of
World War I armistice

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

President Trump will visit Paris on Nov. 11 to take part in a commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I, the White House said Friday. The ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe with French President Emmanuel Macron is expected to be a somber affair. “The president’s participation in this event will highlight the sacrifices that Americans have made, not only during World War I but also in the century since, in the name of liberty,” the White House said. While in Europe, the president also will visit Ireland. The White House also said Mr. Trump will travel later in November to attend the G20 summit in

The French are not known as "feckless" for nothing. Think Inspector Clouseau.

Yorktown would not have happened without France. The French lost millions of men holding Germany at bay before Perhing arrived. Only a channel kept England from NazI domination. French bashing is a tired ahistorical meme.

I´d like to second what #2 says. French soldiers in their hundreds of thousands fought and died bravely in places like Verdun, Fort Douaumont, and Dante´s hill, holding out for days against impossible odds with little ammunition and no food or water.

Unfortunately, they were badly led, with political infighting among the generals who did not understand the ways of war in the machine age. One can cast aspersions on the conduct of the French politicians in WWI, but not on the courageous young men who were killed and maimed defending their country.

That event on November 11, 1918 marked the end of WW I---and the beginning of WW II.

Hitler used the unreasonable post-war demands that the Allies placed on Germany as a rallying point for his rise to power.

Whatever.
The Europeans, Brits included, have been hacking each other up for several thousand years, merely taking a breather right now in preps for the next round. That is THEIR problem (and "culture") not ours.
The United States had no business whatever in becoming involved in WW 1, and the machinations of the despicable worthless low-life "progressive" Woodrow Wilson (spit, spit, spit) to involve this country in that great blood sport accomplished nothing except to increase the body count. I can´t see that the Kaiser was any worse than the Habsburgs, or the House of Windsor (ask my Irish neighbors) or Hanover or the Bourbons or the Romanovs, or the ruling clans in Spain, Belgium, Portugal, or any other. We were foolishly involved, and the world is the worse for it. The United States certainly is the worse for it.
The President is welcome to attend that foolish gathering. It will certainly raise the average I.Q. in that assembly, but I see no other benefit.

We spent several days this June visiting the memorials and battlefields of WW1 in France, around Amiens.

Horrific war, and so very difficult to even grasp the industrial scale of the killing. One one day, July 1, 1916, the Allies lost 30,000 killed. The Battle of the Somme, a few months, had 240,000 dead. That part of France is covered with graveyards, frequently arranged by military unit. Here will be the Queen´s 5th Grenadiers, and there the 14th Australian Infantry, etc. (not actual unit names, but much like this)

Very sobering. So many brave young men just chopped to pieces. Huge parts of Europe´s future just blown away.

They called it The War to End All Wars at the time, but sadly, 21 years later, they did it again.

Texas Declares ‘Final Victory’
in Voter ID Lawsuit

A United States District Court judge dismissed the lawsuit which challenged the Texas voter ID law, announced Attorney General Ken Paxton late Monday. The 2017 Texas voter ID law (SB 5) cleared its final hurdle when the Fifth Circuit honored a request made last month by the opponents of the state’s voter ID law to dismiss any remaining claims since the matter was settled and there was nothing left to pursue in this case. This marked the end of seven years of litigation over the state’s attempts to enact a voter ID law. “I’m proud of the successful fight my

I’ve probably reviewed thousands of congressional letters, and intelligence committee letters from oversight, along with even more executive agency responses. In fact, CTH has shared hundreds of outlines covering granular details within many of the internal memos and correspondences. However, I have never seen anything like this before. The combination of arrogance, hubris and desperation within a letter (pdf here) from the four Democrats on the intelligence oversight Gang of Eight, is palpable even in text format.

We get continuous warnings that Republicans are going to get trounced in the midterms this fall, not because of Republican policies but because people just don’t like President Trump. Of course, we were told that Republicans would get trounced in 2016 because people just didn’t like Trump and he would drag the party down. On Monday, there was an article by the Associated Press that pushed that Democrat narrative. Take a look: Grim warnings for White House, Republicans ahead of election. In a post-Labor Day briefing at the White House, a top Republican pollster told senior staff that the determining factor

In a shocking letter intended to undermine the President, and his authority over the Executive Branch, multiple high ranking Democrats sent a letter ordering intelligence agencies to ignore Trump’s order to declassify numerous documents involving the Russia investigation until consulting with Congress. (Tweet) The intelligence agencies serve at the pleasure of the president — and this clearly crosses the line separating the branches of government. The letter was signed by Rep. Adam Schiff, Rep.

Flashback: Media Using Same Playbook

We’ve seen the media and the Democrats use this playbook before. When Justice Clarence Thomas was well on his way to being confirmed in 1991, the Democrats brought forth Anita Hill to accuse Thomas of sexual harassment, in a last ditch attempt to derail his nomination. At the time (according to a USA Today October 14, 1991 poll) the public believed Clarence Thomas by 47 percent over Anita Hill (24 percent)...so the media rallied around Hill. While Thomas and his congressional defenders were demonized, Hill was instantly canonized as a Rosa Parks for her time by the likes of Time’s

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) bashed the United States in an interview with comedian Sarah Silverman, saying the government "starves little children." Sanders´ comments were made during an episode of Silverman´s Hulu series "I Love You, America," during which the comedian asked why she wasn´t able to use "dirty words" at the U.S. Senate. "We just starve little children, we go bomb houses and buses of children and we give tax breaks to billionaires ... but we don´t use dirty words," he whispered.

Overwhelmed by mounting murders, authorities in Mexico have resorted to storing about 100 rotting corpses in a container parked on the outskirts of a city — enraging residents overcome by the powerful stench. The semi-trailer truck was first spotted last week in a suburb of Mexico’s second-largest city, Guadalajara, drawing the ire of the mayor, who said it was illegally parked. It then turned up in a field farther away from the city, where neighbors complained it stank. “This affects our kids, it smells horrible and the longer it stays, it’s going to stink even worse,” Patricia Jiménez told Reuters.

Pete Flores (R), a conservative former leader of the state Parks and Wildlife Department’s law enforcement division, won a surprise victory over Democrat Pete Gallego, the Austin American-Statesman reported. The runoff election was held following the resignation of the seat´s previous holder, state Sen.

The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault says the FBI should investigate the incident before senators hold a hearing on the allegations. In a letter addressed to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa, and obtained by CNN´s "Anderson Cooper 360," Christine Blasey Ford´s attorneys argue that "a full investigation by law enforcement officials will ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing or making any decisions."

Trust a "psychologist" to wreak havoc with someone else´s family. When Christine Blasey Ford finally surfaced her over three decades-old claim of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh, when they were both teenagers, did she consider for a moment the effect of her accusation on Kavanaugh´s daughters, already escorted from the hearing room after witnessing their father being endlessly attacked by maniacs in the audience, not to mention Kavanaugh´s wife? And how about the dozen girls the judge used to coach who came to the hearing? Originally thrilled to be so honored, how do you think they and their families now

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford will go head-to-head in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee next Monday. The hearing sets up a potential show down on Capitol Hill, the likes of which have not been seen since Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill testified in 1991 after she accused him of sexual harassment. Thomas was ultimately confirmed after a bitter and bruising battle. But the Kavanaugh-Ford hearing comes more than 25 years later, amid the #metoo movement, and when women have been energized after the election of Donald Trump as president.

Feinstein had been holding on to the letter since earlier this year. It turns out the woman who sent the letter to Democrat lawmakers – Christine Blasey – is a far-left activist. Independent journalist Mike Cernovich says Christine Blasey is a far-left activist who spent all weekend deleting her social media accounts.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s treatment of a more than 3-decade-old sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was unfair all around. It was unfair to Kavanaugh, unfair to his accuser and unfair to Feinstein’s colleagues — Democrats and Republicans alike — on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Feinstein, a California Democrat, took the worst possible course by waiting until almost a week after Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing was completed to ominously announce that she had turned over “information from an individual” about Kavanaugh to the FBI, and adding that she would be honoring the woman’s “strongly requested” confidentiality.

When Christine Blasey Ford finally admitted that it was she who had leveled the uncorroborated charges of sexual assault against SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, she was immediately asked if she would be willing to repeat her charges under oath. Her lawyer, Democratic activist Debra Katz, claimed her client was willing to testify before Congress. However, according to the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, neither Ford nor her lawyer has responded to any of several attempts to confirm that she will attend the Monday hearing that was set up so she can tell her story in Kavanaugh’s presence.
