Australian BASE Jumper Nathan J Jones Completes Incredible Wingsuit ‘High Five’

 

 

 

 

 

” An Australian BASE jumper has pulled off the seemingly impossible to complete what is thought to be the world’s first air-to-ground ‘high five’.

  Nathan J Jones from Avoca Beach did the death-defying stunt in early December for Project BASE to raise awareness for a water well project in the Amhara region of Africa.

  Footage shows Jones skimming just metres above boulders and tree tops in Chamonix before smashing through a large hand held up by another member of their team.

  The leap was filmed by Sam Hardy and was dedicated to “absolute legend and good friend’ Alex Duncan, the West Australian BASE jumper who died in the Swiss Alps earlier this year.”

French Parliament Debates Recognizing Palestine

 

 

 

 

 

 

” France’s lower house of Parliament on Friday debated a measure urging the government to recognize an independent Palestine. The Socialist government supports the idea of two states, but argues that it’s too early for outright recognition.

  Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said France is working at the United Nations for a resolution to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations — and to set a two-year deadline for success.

” France will recognize a Palestinian state,” Fabius told the lawmakers, but the question is “when, and how.” “

France Evil Clowns: 14-Year-Old Latest Arrested In Terror Wave

 

 

 

 

 

 

” As a wave of “evil clowns” terrorizing passers-by spreads over France, a 14-year-old dressed as a clown was arrested Monday near Paris for attempting to attack a woman.

  Another teenager in the southern city of Montpellier was sentenced to four months in prison for hitting a passer-by 30 times with an iron bar overnight Saturday, reported AFP. The teen was also dressed as a clown.

  Complaints have poured in recently over “armed clowns” wreaking havoc in various parts of the country – some carrying pistols, knives or baseball bats – and police have detained several people over the violent trend.

  The phenomenon has even prompted anti-clown vigilantism, forcing police to step in to try and quell the hysteria by saying there have only been a few sightings of the grotesque pranksters.

  On Monday, a woman who had just got out of her car in Chelles, near Paris, called the police, saying two clowns – one of whom was armed with a fake axe – had attacked her, a source said.

  They escaped when a passer-by armed with a baseball bat tried to stop them, and one of the pranksters was subsequently detained when police spotted him, white make-up still all over his face.”

The Cream Puff Corps: Australia, Belgium, Britain And France – Not Just The Netherlands

 

 

 

” If trains and buss are no longer safe places for soldiers on their way to work, surely they are no longer safe for ordinary citizens either.

” The best thing you can do is to make an effort to kill any infidel, French, American, or any of their allies… Smash his head with a rock, slaughter him with a knife, run him over with a car throw him from a high place, choke him or poison him.” — Mohammed al-Adnani, ISIS spokesman, September 2014.

  Instead of telling their soldiers to hide themselves, Western governments should tell their soldiers to show themselves to make clear to the jihadists, and to frightened citizens, that we in the West are not afraid of terrorists. On the contrary, we will root them out and come down on them with all our military might.

  Earlier this week, Timon Dias wrote on these pages that the Dutch authorities have ordered Dutch soldiers not to wear their uniforms when they are using public transport on their way to the barracks. But the Dutch are not the only cowards in the West. Unfortunately, the Netherlands is not the only country that, for fear of attacks by Muslim extremists, has advised its military to no longer wear their uniforms in public. Apparently, Australia, Belgium, Britain and France have done the same. “

Hollywood Celebrities Caught On Hidden Camera Accepting Money From “Middle Eastern Oil Interests”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Published on May 20, 2014

” James O’Keefe Premieres “Expose: Hollywood’s War on US Energy” at Cannes Hollywood celebrities caught on hidden camera accepting money from “Middle Eastern oil interests”

  CANNES — In a blockbuster new video, Project Veritas has exposed the truth about the dark funding behind Hollywood’s anti-fracking messaging machine.

  New York Times Bestselling Author and Project Veritas founder and president James O’Keefe debuted the latest investigation at a “premiere” in Cannes, France on Wednesday.

  In the investigation, an undercover journalist from Project Veritas posed as a member of a Middle Eastern oil dynasty and offered $9 million in funding to American filmmakers to fund an anti-fracking movie.

  In video from a meeting with Ed Begley Jr., Mariel Hemingway and Josh Tickell, a Project Veritas investigator disguised as “Muhammed” offered $9 million for an anti-fracking film. “Muhammad” clearly states: “If Washington DC continues fracking, America will be energy efficient, and then they won’t need my oil anymore.”

  In the same conversation, Begley and Hemingway accept the funding and agree to hide the source of funds for the anti-fracking movie. Hemingway agreeing that those who will know the source of the funding are “only at this table.” 

  Ed Begley Jr. is an outspoken environmental activist and current Governor on the board of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science (the organization that brings us the OSCARS every year.)

Mariel Hemingway is a Golden Globe- and Oscar-nominated actress.

  Josh Tickell is a Sundance Film Festival Winner and the director of environmental message movies “Fuel”, “The Big Fix” and “PUMP”.

  Team Begley even submitted a video of Oscar-nominated actor Mark Ruffalo offering his unwavering support for the fictitious anti-fracking film project.

  The meeting came about after a series of discussions with Josh and Rebecca Tickell. A Project Veritas journalist posed as an ad executive seeking to broker a deal for his client (“Muhammed”) to fund an American-made anti-fracking film.

  In a phone call to Tickell, the ad executive states: “My client’s interest is to end American energy independence; your interest is to end fracking. And you guys understand that?”

  Tickell’s response: “Correct. Yes, super clear.”

  Tickell makes it clear on the tape that revealing the source of funding for an activist film can undermine its credibility. Tickell notes that the movie “Promised Land” undermined its own message because it was labeled as being funded by Image Nation Abu Dhabi. His advice: “So rather than putting that [the source of funding] up front, don’t mention that.”

  In a follow-up call with Josh and Rebecca Tickell, Rebecca Tickell assures our investigator: “We would never tell about where the funding is coming from. That would be really awkward for us.”

  Josh Tickell: “We’re confident that we can keep this zip locked, you know tight, air-tight forever. If we don’t protect who is kind of funding this thing, if we have to disclose that or that becomes a necessary part of it, the whole enterprise will not work.” 

  Project Veritas founder and president James O’Keefe stated Wednesday:

” This latest investigation shows the dark side of Hollywood’s environmental movement. Hollywood is willing to take and conceal money from Middle Eastern oil interests in order to advance their cause of destroying American energy independence.”

Astronomers Discover Hypergiant Star 1300 Times The Size Of Our Sun

 

 

 

 

” Astronomers using the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope have discovered the largest yellow star so far.”

 

 

 

 

” The team discovered yellow hypergiant star HR 5171 in a double star system about 12,000 light-years away from Earth. The star is so huge that it can just about be seen with the naked eye, despite its distance from Earth.

“ The new observations also showed that this star has a very close binary partner, which was a real surprise,” Olivier Chesneau, from the Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur, Nice, France, said in a statement. “The two stars are so close that they touch and the whole system resembles a gigantic peanut.” “

 Only 7 World War II Medal of Honor Recipients Remain

 

 

 

 

” Walter Ehlers belonged to the “Greatest Generation” — men like my dad who left the warmth of homes to fight the tyranny of Naziism, fascism and imperialism. They are the men for whom our eyes well up when we meet them and hear their stories.

  Today unfortunately we bid farewell to a piece of American history: World War II Medal of Honor recipient, Walter D. Ehlers.

  When Ehlers was 23 years old, he charged through enemy fire to destroy two German machine gun nests, killed seven enemy soldiers, put a halt to a mortar barrage and carried a wounded buddy to safety – all after he had been shot in the side by a sniper. The date was June 9, 1944 at Normandy. His mission was to liberate Europe from the grip of Nazi Germany.”

S/Sgt Ehlers’ citation reads:

 

” For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty on 9-10 June 1944, near Goville, France. S/Sgt. Ehlers, always acting as the spearhead of the attack, repeatedly led his men against heavily defended enemy strong points exposing himself to deadly hostile fire whenever the situation required heroic and courageous leadership.

  Without waiting for an order, S/Sgt. Ehlers, far ahead of his men, led his squad against a strongly defended enemy strong point, personally killing 4 of an enemy patrol who attacked him en route. Then crawling forward under withering machinegun fire, he pounced upon the guncrew and put it out of action. Turning his attention to 2 mortars protected by the crossfire of 2 machineguns, S/Sgt. Ehlers led his men through this hail of bullets to kill or put to flight the enemy of the mortar section, killing 3 men himself. After mopping up the mortar positions, he again advanced on a machinegun, his progress effectively covered by his squad. When he was almost on top of the gun he leaped to his feet and, although greatly outnumbered, he knocked out the position single-handed.

  The next day, having advanced deep into enemy territory, the platoon of which S/Sgt. Ehlers was a member, finding itself in an untenable position as the enemy brought increased mortar, machinegun, and small arms fire to bear on it, was ordered to withdraw. S/Sgt. Ehlers, after his squad had covered the withdrawal of the remainder of the platoon, stood up and by continuous fire at the semicircle of enemy placements, diverted the bulk of the heavy hostile fire on himself, thus permitting the members of his own squad to withdraw.

   At this point, though wounded himself, he carried his wounded automatic rifleman to safety and then returned fearlessly over the shell-swept field to retrieve the automatic rifle which he was unable to carry previously. After having his wound treated, he refused to be evacuated, and returned to lead his squad. The intrepid leadership, indomitable courage, and fearless aggressiveness displayed by S/Sgt. Ehlers in the face of overwhelming enemy forces serve as an inspiration to others.”

Landmark Rwanda Genocide Trial Begins

 

 

 

” Twenty years after the Rwanda genocide, France opened its first trial against a suspected accomplice in the massacre that killed 800,000 people, accusing a former intelligence chief of crimes against humanity.

  Pascal Simbikangwa, 54, appeared in a Paris court on Tuesday on the first day of the long-awaited trial, in which more than 50 prosecution witnesses are expected to describe the ex-soldier’s alleged role in arming and directing Hutu killers.”

 

 

 

 

” Human rights activists and journalists from Rwanda crowded the chamber to follow the trial. Simbikangwa denies the charges brought against him.” 

 

 

 

 

” We’re not here in our own name, but in the name of the million victims who were exterminated in Rwanda in 1994,” Alain Gauthier, co-founder of a Rwanda victims’ group that is party to the case, told journalists.

  Long considered a safe haven for ringleaders of the 1994 Rwanda genocide, France lags behind neighbors like Belgium, Switzerland and Germany that have already brought suspects living on their soil to justice.”

Pile Of Dung Dumped Outside French National Assembly

 

 

” A truck dumped a huge pile of manure outside France’s National Assembly on Thursday in a protest against the French political elite.”

 

 

” The driver of the truck — which was marked with the slogan “Out with Hollande and the whole political class!” — was apprehended by police shortly after releasing his smelly load outside the front gates of the grand Palais Bourbon that hosts the lower house Assembly.”

Video: French Strip Off For Free Clothing In Paris

 

Paris Underwear Shopping

 

 

” How far would you go to get some free clothes from the Spanish clothing store, Desigual? Approximately 100 Paris shoppers stripped down to their tighty whities (and more sexy underwear) for just such a chance.

 
  Spain’s popular clothing store, Desigual has been holding its annual New Year sale in Paris, France.
 

  Not to be left behind in the money-making scheme of things, they launched a marketing coup.

 

  In what has been dubbed the “Semi-Naked Party” they offered a free outfit to the first 100 who signed up.”

European Far-Right Parties Team Up Against Islam And Brussels

 

 

 

” Six European far-right parties joined forces Thursday to combat immigration and European bureaucracy ahead of 2014 elections, French newspaper Liberation reported.

The parties, which include France’s Front National, are teaming up against two common enemies: Brussels and Islam, the newspaper said. The Netherlands’ PVV, Belgium’s Vlaams Belang, Italy’s Liga Norte, Swedish democrats and Austria’s Freedom Party met at a hotel in Vienna to discuss the outlines of their collaboration.

The meeting happened in secret so as not to attract the attention of possible demonstrators, the paper said, and to be able to devote their time to strategizing about the future of the far-right in Europe.

But Andreas Molzer, the organizer of the meeting and an Austrian member of the European Parliament, confirmed the meeting took place. “The points that unite us are more important than those that separate us,” he told Liberation.”

 

   The “extreme right” of Europe seems to be very similar to the Tea Party on this side of the pond . In typical leftist controlled media fashion those with a divergent viewpoint must be “extreme” . More power to the nationalists . Who really wants their country to be turned into Islamic slums even as the original citizens are forced top foot the bill ?

 

 

 

 

 

Suffer The Children

The case against labeling and medicating children, and effective alternatives for treating them

 

 

 

 

” In the United States, at least 9% of school-aged children have been diagnosed with ADHD, and are taking pharmaceutical medications. In France, the percentage of kids diagnosed and medicated for ADHD is less than .5%. How come the epidemic of ADHD—which has become firmly established in the United States—has almost completely passed over children in France?

Is ADHD a biological-neurological disorder? Surprisingly, the answer to this question depends on whether you live in France or in the United States. In the United States, child psychiatrists consider ADHD to be a biological disorder with biological causes. The preferred treatment is also biological–psycho stimulant medications such as Ritalin and Adderall.

French child psychiatrists, on the other hand, view ADHD as a medical condition that has psycho-social and situational causes. Instead of treating children’s focusing and behavioral problems with drugs, French doctors prefer to look for the underlying issue that is causing the child distress—not in the child’s brain but in the child’s social context. They then choose to treat the underlying social context problem with psychotherapy or family counseling. This is a very different way of seeing things from the American tendency to attribute all symptoms to a biological dysfunction such as a chemical imbalance in the child’s brain.”

 

 

   For the second time today we find ourselves praising the French approach to a very serious issue . You’ll note that we didn’t classify it as a serious “problem” but as a serious issue . That is because we tend to see the whole topic in terms of neither a biological ailment nor a psychological one , but as more of a behavioral issue and as such remain somewhat skeptical of both the US and the French methods .

   That being said there is ample reason to commend the French approach as it does involve dealing with the people and their lives in an unobtrusive way . There is nothing to be said for the American way of doping our kids into compliance at all costs and in the process robbing them of their individuality while bloating Big Pharma bottom lines .

   As far as we are concerned the whole ADHD phenomenon is more an issue of poor parenting than poor behavior on the child’s part . The habitual American Rx of medicating the problem away is just laziness and an unwillingness to accept responsibility on the part of the parents for not setting the ground rules early enough and not inculcating in their children the normal expectations of civil behavior. We are a coarsened society and it shows in our children . Where “you’re welcome” becomes “no problem” you know there’s a problem .

 

 

” From the time their children are born, French parents provide them with a firm cadre—the word means “frame” or “structure.” Children are not allowed, for example, to snack whenever they want. Mealtimes are at four specific times of the day. French children learn to wait patiently for meals, rather than eating snack foods whenever they feel like it. French babies, too, are expected to conform to limits set by parents and not by their crying selves. French parents let their babies “cry it out” if they are not sleeping through the night at the age of four months.

French parents, Druckerman observes, love their children just as much as American parents. They give them piano lessons, take them to sportspractice, and encourage them to make the most of their talents. But French parents have a different philosophy of discipline. Consistently enforced limits, in the French view, make children feel safe and secure. Clear limits, they believe, actually make a child feel happier and safer—something that is congruent with my own experience as both a therapist and a parent. Finally, French parents believe that hearing the word “no” rescues children from the “tyranny of their own desires.” And spanking, when used judiciously, is not considered child abuse in France.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN

 

    No , not that haughty , French looking secretary of state John (Did I mention I served in Vietnam) Kerry , the real French … They are the saviors (so far) of the Iranian nuclear negotiations . If it wasn’t for some Gaulist backbone the Kerry/Obama crowd would have folded like a cheap suit .

 

   

More of that much heralded “Change” . Only these two clowns could make France look like the hardliner in international affairs.

 

 

” Who ever thought that when it came to foreign affairs we would some day be saying “Thank God for the French”?  It seems that even France can’t take the “modalities” of the French-looking John Kerry (“modalities” being the precious word Kerry used on Meet the Press yesterday to describe appeasement).  Maybe Kerry forgot to pack his magic hat.  Anyway, Jonathan Tobin notes at Commentary.com:

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius’s “torpedoing” of the talks by his insistence on more concessions on both the Islamist state’s enrichment of uranium and their construction of a plutonium plant enraged the Iranians and frustrated Kerry and some of the other negotiators. While there is a lively debate about the French motive for their tough stance, those who care about stopping Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon can only say thank heaven for the French.”

Why The French Are Bailing On France

 

 

 

” A poll on the front page of last Tuesday’s Le Monde, that bible of the French Left-leaning Establishment (think a simultaneously boring and hectoring Guardian), translated into stark figures the winter of François Hollande’s discontent.

More than 70 per cent of the French feel taxes are “excessive”, and 80 per cent believe the president’s economic policy is “misguided” and “inefficient”. This goes far beyond the tax exiles such as Gérard Depardieu, members of the Peugeot family or Chanel’s owners. Worse, after decades of living in one of the most redistributive systems in western Europe, 54 per cent of the French believe that taxes – of which there have been 84 new ones in the past two years, rising from 42 per cent of GDP in 2009 to 46.3 per cent this year – now widen social inequalities instead of reducing them.

“It’s not only that people don’t like to be treated like criminals just because they’re successful,” says a French banker friend who has recently moved to London. “But this uncertainty in every aspect of the tax system means it is impossible to do business: you don’t know what your future costs are, or your customer’s. You can’t buy, you can’t sell, you can’t hire, you can’t fire.” “

Rouge Sucette, A Cola Flavored Wine Arrives

 

 

” The world’s first commercially produced cola flavored wine has gone on sale in France. Called Rouge Sucette, the wine is made of 75 percent from grapes, and the rest from water, sugar and cola flavoring.

Strange as it may seem, in parts of Europe it is currently popular to mix wine and coca cola together. This cocktail is sometimes called ‘kalimotxo‘. This trend has led one wine producer to launch Rouge Sucette, at the trade show Vinexpo.”
