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

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/31/2018 8:38:43 PM

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.

Merriam´s-Webster´s dictionary says the word means: 1. containing or being poisonous material especially when capable of causing death or serious debilitation -2: exhibiting symptoms of infection...3: extremely harsh, malicious, or harmful..4: relating to or being an asset that has lost so much value that it cannot be sold on the market..The Urban Dictionary says the word is "used to describe usually very negative person, that b**ch about everything, spread unnecessary hate or just talk s**t about others."So, with the way liberals and the mainstream media hate President Trump, it´s not surprising that the Oxford Dictionaries has picked the Word of

Barack Obama trashed President Trump on Monday night while speaking about ways to mobilize Americans to bring about social change at an Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago. Arrogant Obama accused President Trump of ignoring the climate change hoax because he’s a racist with mommy issues. “The reason we don’t” invest in climate change policies, Obama said, “is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism…mommy issues.” The audience of drones laughed after Obama trashed Trump.

On this Thanksgiving Day, I have lots to be thankful for. I live in a wonderful country, have a wonderful family, and enjoy freedoms that many in this world do not. This Thanksgiving, I will sit down to a beautiful meal prepared by those I love. God has given me much to be thankful for, and I am grateful. I wonder if those on the left will be celebrating this day in the same spirit. It seems that no matter how much they have or how many freedoms they enjoy, for progressives, it is never enough.

Looks like CNN´s New Day hosts are in fierce competition to see who can be more sneeringly insulting to the Trumps. As we noted, John Berman yesterday suggested that President Trump is "full of ´schiff.´"Today, it was Alisyn Camerota´s turn. Reacting to the news that Ivanka Trump used personal email, Camerota turned to former Trump aide Marc Short and snidely asked: "Marc, at Trump rallies, they chant ´lock her up, lock her up.´ Who are they referring to? Hillary, or Ivanka?" (Video) Camerota´s mere words don´t do justice to the degree to which she dripped with sarcasm while trying to

The watchdog group also wanted top Clinton aides and State Department officials, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills´, deposition videos made public. The lawsuit was part of a broader Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that came about in October 2016 when Clinton refused to

Recent polls are revealing what many conservatives have contended for a while: that the media is decidedly liberal. Several recent media surveys have noted the tilt to the left as Investor’s Business Daily reported in a piece entitled, “Media Bias: Pretty Much All Of Journalism Now Leans Left, Study Shows.” (Photo) The editorial noted that it is “now pretty much a fact that journalism is one of the most left-wing of all professions.” “The profound leftward ideological bias of the Big Media is the main reason why America now seems saturated with ‘fake news.’ Journalists, besotted with their own ideology,

As the opposition forces against Nancy Pelosi´s bid for House Speaker may be starting to see fissures in the ranks, some fierce holdouts have made their distaste for the establishment Democrat known. According to Fox News, a total of 16 U.S. House Democrats circulated a letter on Monday declaring themselves "Never Nancy" while calling for "new leadership" without saying who that new leader should be. The letter cordially begins by thanking Pelosi for her years of service as House Speaker before calling for a "change" in leadership."We are thankful to Leader Pelosi for her years of service to our Country

"If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress — uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House," Ocasio-Cortez said on Saturday while on a call with Justice Democrats.

She did send it,” said Burnadette Norris-Weeks, an attorney who works as counsel to the Supervisor of Elections Office. Evelyn Perez-Verdia, a former office spokeswoman who left several years ago, said Sunday evening she was told by people in the office that the letter was sent “to Tallahassee” earlier in the day. Norris-Weeks said she saw an early draft of the letter. In the version she saw, she said Snipes, 75, expressed a desire to spend more time with her family.

California Gov.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Brown is proposing one of the most significant changes to the state´s logging rules in nearly half a century. "Gov. Jerry Brown is proposing broad new changes to California’s logging rules that would allow landowners to cut larger trees and build temporary roads without obtaining a permit as a way to thin more forests across the state," the

An outrageous discussion unfolded on CNN recently focused on how most white women who voted for President Donald Trump must be “racist.”Only one of the all-female panel hosted by CNN’s Don Lemon pushed back in the discussion on why the president resonates with most white women, delivering a blistering take-down of the argument that white women who have a “deep investment in white supremacy” voted for Trump.

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

Democrat Stacey Abrams isn´t backing down from her fight against what she calls voter suppression tactics and election mismanagement after losing the Georgia governor´s race. In fact, Abrams said she experienced the problems in her state firsthand — after nearly being denied a ballot during early voting. In an interview with Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee said that when she went to vote last month, a poll worker initially told her that she had requested an absentee ballot and couldn´t cast an in-person vote. Abrams replied that she never filed for an absentee ballot, and after

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?" Wallace asked Trump. "I think I´m doing a great job," Trump said. "I would

Scientists say they have uncovered how and why wombats produce cube-shaped poo - the only known species to do so. The Australian marsupial can pass up to 100 deposits of poop a night and they use the piles to mark territory. The shape helps it stop rolling away. Despite having round anuses like other mammals, wombats do not produce round pellets, tubular coils or messy piles. Researchers revealed on Sunday the varied elasticity of the intestines help to sculpt the poop into cubes. "The first thing that drove me to this is that I have never seen anything this weird in biology. That was
