A couple who were found with a rocket launcher and an AK-47 assault rife in their vehicle during a routine traffic stop, have been arrested by police in southern France. The pair, in their twenties, who have not been named, were picked up in Port-de-Bouc, near Marseille. Ammunition was also recovered from the car, Le Parisien reported. The 25-year-old male was reportedly known to police for abusing his female partner, who was arrested alongside him. (Snip) According to La Provence newspaper, the man was known for petty crimes and did not have known connections to Islamist extremist groups.

Meanwhile, near Marseille...

It´s amazing how often these guys in European countries are said to be known to police.

Grammar: Ugh! Who cares. "couple is singular". The couple "was" not "were." There are at least three instances of incorrect application in this article.

"An investigation into the suspects (the suspect´s what, their shoe size?) (HAS) been handed to the Marseille judicial police."

This is a bit unrelated to the topic of this thread, but I am careful that as a writer my grammar is precise. (And of course, I do make mistakes though I read and re-read my work many times)

For years I have followed the grammar of journalists and have observed the rapid decay in about the past twenty years mainly from the Clintons on. The real decline has been in the past five years.

Who or whom? I´ve observed at least one hundred incorrect applications in the past six months. I observed this error at least wenty-nine times in just one month.

Maybe I´m a bit nit-picky, but here on Lucianne, it´s a pleasure because very few L-dotters use poor grammar. This is not to criticize my friends here. We aren´t professionals. We are honest in our verve to stare a message.

There is no such thing as perfection. Misprints are not part of this decline which I target. It´s the "professionals" and their lousy grammar.

I´ve noticed the grammar problem myself. One other symptom: the use of ´impact´ as a verb. There is a perfectly good verb that was used previously: affect. But it was dropped because, in effect, it exposed the lack of training in spelling and appropriate use.

With that said: "did not have Islamist extremist" connections? Gee, what religion did this fellow belong to? Was he one of your ´immigrants´? Guessing his name is Muhammed but he changed it to something else for his nom de guerre.

Hey, isn´t France one of the countries where it is nearly impossible for a law abiding citizen to own a gun? Yeah, the heart of the EU where all is so peaceful because of their draconian gun laws!
PS What is so distressing about the grammar is that this is an British paper and one would think that the education system there would do a better job!

Self-criticism of my input above. Though I read this several times..., hmmm: you don´t "stare" a message.

We live in a world of technology where even the closest scrutiny such as in this case in Las Vegas can slip through the cracks. It´s been said that the 9/11 World Trade Center should have been picked up but agencies couldn´t talk to each other. Treachery has just begun. This guy (maybe these guys) have proven what can transpire even in a civilized, technologically savvy world.

God Bless America and keep our President safe!!!!!

Birmingham, Ala. — U.S. senate elect Doug Jones won big with the African American vote. According to the Washington Post Jones got 96% of the African American vote. 93% of the men voted for him. African American women led the vote at 98%. DeJuana Thompson helped organize a program called “Woke Vote.” Organizers targeted hundreds of African American churches, businesses and college students at HBCUs (Historically Black College & Universities) statewide.

Bill and Hillary Clinton forced the Secret Service to undermine itself by ´systematically destroying´ the rules that were put in place for their protection, a former officer who guarded them claims. In his new book, New York Times best-selling author Gary Byrne writes that the Secret Service was nearly undone by serving the Clintons with ´blind loyalty´ which they took advantage of for their own gain. Agents were allegedly forced to collude with the Clintons in the ´Chinagate´ campaign finance scandal in 1996 by ignoring the contents of brown paper bags brought into the White House by Chinese officials.

Republican Roy Moore refused to conceded the special election race after news networks called the race for Democrat Doug Jones, saying the race is “not over” and that God is on his side. Mr. Moore and his campaign said the margin of Mr. Jones’ lead is likely to trigger a recount under state law because could end up being less than half a percentage point. “When the vote is this close, it is not over,” Mr. Moore told his supporters at his election night rally. (Snip) With 99 percent of the precincts counted, Mr. Jones held a 49.9 percent to

Fusion GPS tried to tie Trump to
Clinton’s pedophile pal Epstein
as part of smear campaign
Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 12/10/2017 6:54:54     Post Reply
Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm whose Democrat-financed Russia dossier fueled an FBI investigation into Donald Trump, pitched other stories about the Republican presidential candidate to Washington reporters, including an attempt to tie him to a convicted pedophile who was once buddies with former President Bill Clinton. Journalist sources told The Washington Times that Fusion founder Glenn Simpson pushed the idea of a close relationship between Mr. Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting sex from an underage girl. The Trump-Epstein link appears purely social, far short of Mr. Clinton’s 20-plus plane rides on Epstein’s “Lolita Express”

President Trump pressured congressional Democrats Saturday to drop their demands for amnesty for young illegal immigrants as part of a year-end spending deal, saying their insistence on protecting illegals is part of a liberal mindset that led to the death of Kate Steinle in San Francisco. “Unfortunately, Democrats in Congress not only oppose our efforts to stop illegal immigration and crack down on sanctuary cities,” Mr. Trump said in his weekly address. “Now they are demanding amnesty as a condition for funding the government, holding troop funding hostage and putting our national security at risk. We cannot allow it.”

The US Navy says an African-American sailor who claimed that a fellow shipmate had vandalized his bunk with racial slurs actually faked the whole incident. Marquie Little, 27, an African-American aviation boatswain´s mate airman aboard the aircraft carrier George H.W.

The son of Rep. John Conyers, who resigned from Congress this week amid sexual harassment accusations, was arrested in Los Angeles in February on suspicion of domestic violence, NBC News has learned. John Conyers III, who his father endorsed for his Congressional seat as he departed, ´body slammed [his girlfriend] on the bed and then on the floor where he pinned her down and spit on her,´ the police report said. The junior Conyers rebutted her statement saying the girlfriend, who wasn´t named in the complaint, was using alcohol and marijuana, and tried to throw him out of the residence.

Lionsgate has dropped its John Gotti biopic starring John Travolta just 10 days before the movie´s scheduled released date. The surprising eleventh hour move was reported on Tuesday, with several sources confirming the studio has cut ties with the project. Lionsgate has reportedly sold Gotti back to its production company Emmett/Furla/Oasis and they are expected to be seeking new distribution. (Snip) However, it´s highly unlikely a new distributor will be found in time for the slated release date of December 15 and it will no doubt get pushed to 2018.

Exclusive — RNC Jumps Back into
Alabama Race Behind Judge Roy Moore

Mobile, Alabama — The Republican National Committee (RNC) is now again backing Judge Roy Moore, the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate in Alabama. The RNC’s decision to now publicly support Moore again comes in the wake of President Donald Trump’s wholehearted endorsement of Moore on Monday morning. (Snip) Throughout this process, since the Washington Post published frivolous evidence-free allegations against Moore, the RNC’s position has closely mirrored the White House position on Moore. At first, the RNC held out criticism or withdrawal of support while the president was overseas in Asia on a multi-day, multi-country trip.

Puerto Rico gives out $100 million in

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello Nevares last month asked federal taxpayers to shell out $94 billion to pay for the territory’s recovery from Hurricane Maria — then turned around and paid out about $100 million in Christmas bonuses to island government employees. The governor’s aides say the bonuses are a longstanding tradition and part of the law, and were planned for in the budget approved last summer. But that budget came well before Hurricanes Irma and Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, leaving much of the territory in ruin and leaving the government begging for federal assistance. The island’s financial oversight board,

Even if President Trump stops calling her “Pocahontas,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren may be unable to silence the chatter over her dubious claims of Cherokee ancestry for at least the next year, thanks in part to someone whose Indian heritage isn’t in doubt. Shiva Ayyadurai, a Bombay-born, MIT-educated entrepreneur running as an independent to unseat the Massachusetts Democrat, already is the early favorite for the November election’s catchiest campaign slogan: “Only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian.” In June, he sent Ms. Warren a DNA testing kit for her birthday. She sent it back, but the exchange exploded on

Republicans and Democrats split on partisan lines — a whopping 82 percent of Republicans said the allegations were "probably" or "definitely" false,

A professor at Boston University has proclaimed Christmas carol favorite “Jingle Bells” to be a “racist song” and is urging people to shun the jaunty tune. Kyna Hamill, a theater history professor at Boston University, recently told the Boston Globe that the venerable Christmas song has a “secret” racist past that has been “systematically” hidden from Americans as they celebrate the Christmas season. “The history of the song has remained hidden behind its local and season affection,” Hamill told the paper. She continued saying the song’s “blackface and racist origins have been subtly and systematically removed from its history.” (Tweet/Video) Hamill

Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.

Scandal: For 18 months, the FBI has been fixated on determining whether President Trump worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election. But explosive text exchanges between top FBI agents suggest it should be looking in the mirror. The text messages sent between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, which became public on Wednesday, provide a rare and illuminating window into just how rabidly partisan putatively nonpartisan law enforcement officials can be. In the exchanges, they called Trump an "idiot," a "loathsome human," an "enormous do-che," and said "this man cannot be president." When not berating Trump, they were praising Hillary Clinton.

Spirits were high inside the House chamber on Thursday, November 16, when, in the early afternoon, the gavel fell and a measure to rewrite the American tax code passed on a partisan tally of 227 to 205.

Democrats´ shocking victory in the Alabama Senate special election undoubtedly has raised their potential list of seats they might win. If they can win in the Deep South, they can win anywhere. High on the list of reach targets is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is up for re-election in 2018. Hillary Clinton did quite well in Texas, only losing by 9 points (better than she did in Iowa) — as compared to nearly 28 points in Alabama. What´s more, Democrats have a solid candidate in the form of Rep. Beto O´Rourke from El Paso. It is true, of course,

The drama between Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and President Donald Trump has reached absurd heights. First, there was that rather tweet from the president, which was not out of the ordinary. He accused Gillibrand of doing “anything” for campaign contributions. Gillibrand said this was a sexist smear, despite the president using that line on pretty much everyone. This all is part of the ongoing sexual harassment reckoning on the Hill and elsewhere. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is gone, and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has signaled his intention to leave…whenever that may be. Gillibrand has called on Trump to resign, as
