Breaking: The Eiffel Tower Has Been Evacuated

Can anyone guess who would do such a thing? reported: FRENCH police arrested an intruder brandishing a knife at the Eiffel Tower on Saturday night which led the monument to be evacuated, sources said.

The man, who is aged around 19 and has a history of psychological problems, forced his way past security guards and then shouted, “Allahu Akbar” (“God is Great”), a legal source told AFP.

Armed soldiers who are permanently stationed at the Eiffel Tower ordered him to drop his weapon, which he did without attacking anyone, the source said, asking not to be named.

The man, who was apparently alone, was “very quickly overpowered and arrested” and nobody was hurt, a statement from the company that runs the monument said.

After the arrest, police at the site checked the venue and called for it to be evacuated at around 00:30, 15 minutes before the Eiffel Tower normally closes, the statement added.

The intruder was wearing a Paris Saint-Germain soccer shirt. At the time of the incident the tower was lit up with the colours of the team to welcome the club’s new world-record signing, Brazilian star Neymar.

France has been under a state of emergency since the November 2015 attacks on Paris restaurants, a concert venue and a sports stadium that left 130 people dead.

Since the first wave of terror attacks in January 2015, 239 people have been killed.

The legal source said the man with the knife, a Frenchman born in the West African state of Mauritania, had been discharged from a psychiatric hospital in July.

The tower reopened on Sunday morning as usual at 9am (5pm AEST).

Breaking: China Has Just Joined Russia

China has joined Russia in endorsing the massive U.N. Sanctions bill against North Korea. reported: “After a month of deliberations and negotiations, the [U.N.] Security Council on Saturday unanimously passed a resolution that would slash about $1 billion off North Korea’s annual foreign revenue,” the Wall Street Journal’s Farnaz Fassihi reports:

“China and Russia … ultimately endorsed the resolution, saying the rogue nation’s recent provocations were unacceptable.”

“U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley … personally thanked China for helping move the resolution.”

“The U.S., which had drafted and put forward the resolution, negotiated for more than a month with China.”

“[R]esolution steps up trade restrictions with Pyongyang by aiming to cut off a third of its $3 billion annual export revenue … bans countries from … new joint ventures with Pyongyang.”
Be smart: This looks like a big, unforeseen win for Trump. Stanford’s Michael McFaul‏ — U.S. ambassador to Russia under Obama, and a persistent and influential Trump critic — tweeted: “This vote is a genuine foreign policy achievement. … Well done Ambassador @nikkihaley.”

Breaking: Obama Exposed Diverting Tax Dollars Right Before He Left Office

Former President Obama has been exposed diverting taxpayer funding towards the creation of a “climate change museum” in Washington DC.

Breitbart reported: In the waning days of his presidency, former President Barack Obama’s administration oversaw the creation of a more than $300,000 climate change “museum” in a government building in Washington, DC, paid for by taxpayers and filled with displays that advance the idea that man-made climate change is a major threat, and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations are necessary to fight it.

A spokesman for the EPA confirmed to Breitbart News the more than $300,000 price tag — $211,111 for the Smithsonian Institution to create the materials shown in the museum and $134,000 to renovate the space. (The Smithsonian Institution is taxpayer-funded.)

The content of the climate change exhibit, which opened to the public just days after Obama left office, was produced by the EPA Alumni Association, which compiled and presented it in a timeline-fashion, detailing the milestones of the regulatory agency since it was founded in 1970.

Called a “pet project” of Obama EPA administrator Gina McCarthy in an article about the museum the Washington Post published on Sunday, the museum is tucked into the lobby of the EPA Credit Union in the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center.

The museum does contain facts about the EPA, including that it was established by Republican President Richard Nixon and documents that the agency has put into place countless regulations affecting all aspects of American life, ranging from the cars we drive to how we heat and cool our homes.

But the museum also clearly embodies the ideology of Obama and his EPA, which was responsible for some of the most restrictive regulations — a number of which have now been overturned by President Donald Trump.

The exhibit pays homage to Obama’s signing the United States onto the Paris climate accord, which has since been undone by Trump.

The Clean Power Plan — Obama’s signature energy policy effort to regulate carbon emissions from American power plants — was also scrapped when Trump signed an executive order in March.

“There is no question that parts of the museum reflect an Obama administration-centric narrative,” the Post reported. “It includes a panel dedicated to the 2009 ‘endangerment finding,’ in which then-EPA administrator Lisa Jackson concluded that the agency was legally obligated to control greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change because they threatened public health.”

Here are some of the other items on display in the museum:

Environmental Justice — “In 1994 President Bill Clinton directed federal agencies to develop environmental justice strategies to address the disproportionately high and adverse health or environmental effects of their programs on minority and low-income populations.”
“Climate change is happening now. Strong evidence indicates that there are major changes in temperature, precipitation, and wind patterns that have lasted over several decades. The EPA works both to reduce the greenhouse gas pollution that causes climate change and to help communities prepare for impacts, including sea level rise, coastal flooding, changes in the length of growing seasons, and heat-related illnesses.”

Breaking: Democrats Block The Bill

Every time the Dems block a bill it reminds me of how much they must hate America. The Democrats have blocked an intelligence bill supporting critical national security programs. Democrats said they blocked it because it was being pushed too fast.
