Obama: Addressing Climate Change Greatest ‘Rejection’ of Terrorism

Monday at the opening of COP21 conference in France, President Barack Obama declared addressing climate change would be a statement of a “rejection” of terrorism. Obama said, “Fellow leaders We have come to Paris to show our resolve. We offer our condolences to the people of France for the barbaric attacks on this beautiful city. We stand united in solidarity, not only to deliver justice to the terrorist network responsible for those attacks but to protect our people and uphold the enduring values that keep us strong and keep us free. We salute the people of Pairs for insisting this crucial conference go on, an act of defiance that proves nothing will deter us from building the future we want for our children. What greater rejection of those who would tear down our world than marshaling our best efforts to save it.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Trump Responds to McCain: ‘We Are Not Exactly Loved By Many Muslims’

Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump responded to comments from Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) he made over the weekend regarding Trump’s rhetoric about Muslims and their attitude about the United States. According to Trump, McCain may not fully understand the problem and he urged vigilance. “I don’t think he has a point because I would say that we are not exactly loved by many Muslims, whether it is 10 percent like you said on the show this morning, or whether it’s a much larger percent,” Trump said. “You saw the soccer game the other day where they were giving a minute of silence. I assume you saw that where the stadium burst out and shouting out things that even the soccer players were very embarrassed. Nobody knew what to do. They were doing Muslim chants and that was a week ago or less than a week ago.” “I think John McCain is incorrect,” he added. “We have to be strong. We have to be vigilant. I have many Muslim friends, they’re wonderful people, but nevertheless, we have to be extremely vigilant and extremely strong and we have to understand what the problem is. I don’t think

Guerra Al Natale: School Cancels Christmas Service In Deference To Muslims, PM: It’s A ‘Very Big Mistake’

After Muslim pupils refused to sing traditional carols at last year’s Christmas service, one Milanese school has switched to hosting a “winter concert” — but many have reacted angrily to the idea. Headmaster Marco Parma of the Istituto Garofani di Rozzano school was forced to resign his post over the weekend after a number of senior figures in Italian political life — including the prime minister — moved to attack his decision to cancel Christmas for his pupils. Social democrat prime minister Matteo Renzi was uncompromising in his defence of traditional Christmas when he condemned the veteran teacher, remarking: “Christmas is much more important than a headmaster being provocative… If he thinks he is promoting integration and co-existence in this way, he appears to me to have made a very big mistake”. “Discussion and dialogue does not mean to say we can drown our identity for the sake of a vague and insipid form of political correctness”. The politician was more qualified in his speech when he came to Christmas itself, which he insisted was acceptable for both atheists and Christians — missing out mention of Italy’s rapidly growing Muslim population. He said:  Italians, both non-religious and Christians, will never give up Christmas”.

Marine Le Pen And Front National Surge In French Regional Elections

Marine Le Pen and her Front National (FN) party are together riding a cresting wave of support in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks. Latest polling shows the FN is on course to govern two – and possibly three – French regions for the first time. Ms. Le Pen is now the overwhelming favourite to capture north-western France and the Marseille-Nice region in elections set for the next two weekends, according to polls published yesterday. Such is the backing for the party that it might harvest as many votes as its conservative and centrist rivals combined. The FN is also running neck-and-neck with Nicolas Sarkozy’s centre-right party, Les Républicains, in the Burgundy-Franche-Comté region in eastern France. A series of regional polls by BVA on Sunday, and published by the Independent, showed the FN gaining between 4 and 7 per cent compared to similar polls before the terrorist assault on Paris. The FN has never won a regional government before. The regional elections are the first political test for French President Francois Hollande since the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 130 people. With the country reeling from that violence and grappling with border controls, FN candidates are showing “a significant increase” in support across the country, BVA

‘My Bad': Leftwing Politico Admits Chelsea Clinton Offered Interview Questions In Advance

Because pretty much everyone in the DC Media almost certainly does the same for Democrats, the leftwing Politico has already gotten away with what would be a major scandal if the DC Media operated in anything resembling an ethical world. But they don’t, so the fact that Politico offered Hillary Clinton’s daughter Chelsea a puff interview where she would receive the questions in advance, is either being played down in the media or outright ignored. Also being downplayed and ignored is Monday’s admission by the leftwing publication that it did indeed offer the presidential daughter those questions in advance. Couched in a dissembling word salad that is equal parts admission and apology, the specific offerer in this case, Politico honcho Mike Allen, buried the following in his daily email newsletter: MY BAD! You may have missed a Gawker post last week that rightly took me to task for something clumsy I wrote in an email to Philippe Reines in 2013, seeking an interview with Chelsea Clinton at a POLITICO brunch. In the email, I said I’d agree to the questions in advance. I have never done that, and would never do that. POLITICO has a policy against it, and it

Senior German Politician Calls For National Burqa Ban, Including Tourists

burqa ban
A senior German politician, who backs a national burqa ban, has said that the law should also cover tourists to the country from the Arab world. The Bavarian State Minister of Economic Affairs, Ilse Aigner, was speaking to German newspaper Die Welt after her party congress in Munich recently approved two proposals — one a burqa ban (the full body covering) and one a ban on the niqab (the face veil). She said: “When I have traveled to Iran, I have obeyed the country’s commandments and worn a headscarf. Likewise I expect women from the Arab world visiting this country to give up the full-face veil. Such laws are not just for people with German citizenship.” Calling for the Christian Social Union’s policy of a niqab and burqa ban to be adopted by Germany as a whole, Ms. Aigner continued: “This is mainly about showing your face. It is about social interaction, seeing each other. It does not fit into our culture to hide – and it contradicts our idea of equality for women. The law should be quickly passed by the Bundestag.” Ms. Aigner also called for a commitment against Islamism from Muslims living in Germany. She said there should be no religion that justifies
