French expression of the day: C'est le bordel! Don't be shocked by today's French expression of the day. It's one you'll often hear spoken (or shouted) by most people in France and nowadays it has nothing to do with brothels... You'll hear it in the street, at home, everywhere, grumbled, shouted, or uttered emphatically with a shaking of the head Once you know how to use it, you'll really sound like a local Some sources say the expression dates back from the late 19th century, after the Franco-Prussian war when brothels lined the streets of Paris and other French towns to describe the lively and chaotic atmosphere in and around those establishments at the time

For yet more on the concerted effort to funnel a whole new generation of Third-World immigrants into Western countries, check out this  groundbreaking exposé   by Andrew Joyce tracing the hidden Jewish hand in starting the ball rolling as early as 1948, the same year international Jewry managed to found their apartheid, ethnic-cleansing state on the ruins of Palestine

Mass Ideological Confusion: European Rightists Compare Globalist Establishment to Nazi Regime An establishment pillar of the European ‘order’ – the Frankfurter Allgemeiner newspaper – explicitly touches the ‘live rail’, which is to say, it ran an op-ed last month titled ‘A Nazi EU?’, speculating on whether or not the present EU, dominated by Germany, should be understood as a lineal extension of German National Socialism. One authority, one law, one ‘gun’ was the organisational principal of the nation-state (rather than the overlaid call of an ‘empire’ of confused sovereignties and spiritual allegiances that had preceded it) But, while this is a truism, its incessant repetition by Brussels functionaries and political powerbrokers, such as Angela Merkel and Schäuble himself, is intended to convert it surreptitiously into a very different notion: no voters in any country can empower their government to oppose Brussels

'This is our answer to the White House': California is bucking Trump's controversial policies in an unprecedented way "As long as you fight, we don't care what gender you identify as," Maj. Gen.
