French Senate Defies Macron,
Says Notre Dame Should Be Rebuilt
Exactly How It Was

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 5/28/2019 9:31:59 PM

Over the weekend, the French Senate approved a bill paving the way forward for restoring Notre Dame cathedral, which nearly burned to the ground back in April in a construction fire. There's one caveat, however: the cathedral must be returned to its "last known visual state." In other words, despite French president Emmanuel Macron's desire to see parts of the cathedral rebuilt with an eye to more "contemporary architecture," the French government wants to see Notre Dame returned to its former glory, according to The Local.


Thank GOD saner heads have prevailed!!

Hopefully it will not be too much longer that what Macron wants will not matter to anyone ... anywhere ... regarding anything.

It was an ancient building. Rebuild it and gets destroyed again. Use the billions to subsidize the French entitlements and the pension funds. They'll welcome the temporary fix on their welfare.

Please do not repeat the abomination of the glass pyramid of architect Pei that defaced the Louvre palace. I would also know who was the Muslim arsonist that burned the most emblematic of all gothic Cathrdrals on Holy Week no less.

If good people do not watch this very carefully for the next 100 years that it takes to rebuild it, expect evil people to finds ways to desecrate it in ever possible way that they can get away with!!! And as secularism and islam become more and more powerful in France, don't be shocked if the evil people do so as part of future governments!!!

#7 - I'd like to know that answer, too. I saw the video of the Muslim on the parapet of one tower. I've been detached from the world for the last six days (niece's wedding with a gathering of all the far-flung family) and this is what I come back to. I'd scream if I still had a voice. As to the sacrilegious desecration planned by Mrs. Macron's little boy, I pray the French people treat him like a Paris taxi driver treats and retired Mid-west couple from the USA. How about a "design competition" to modernize the Arch de Triumph or the Eiffel Tower? I think a swimming pool and a community garden can fit on the Arch. If not they can build an addition. I also advocate the Eiffel Tower be made of glass. Now, that would make a spire to admire! The French Senate just approved a different bill and now have to hash out a "compromise" with their lower house. Whatever is agreed upon, it will include something awful. Even should it be faithfully restored, these ideas were conceived and received warmly. Our common Western Civilization heritage is being systematically destroyed or degraded and I fear for the greatest cathedral built in honor of Our Lord's Blessed Mother.

Where is the Archbishop and Archdiocese on this matter? Is this NOT something owned by the Catholic Church? The Archbishop needs to stand up and tell the French Senate, Parliament, Macron, et. al. to BUTT OUT!!! The Archdiocese of Paris needs to get control of what's going on with this wonderful dedication to Notre Dame (Our Lady). By-the-by, I too want to know about the Muslum on the rooftop striking a fire as is clearly seen on the aforementioned video....so far...crickets. Only some careless worker's cigarette is to blame - yeah, sure!

One common sense upgrade to the building. A robust fire suppression system. Otherwise restore to original. That is what the definition of restoration is.

NAZI General Dietrich von Choltitz successfully schemed to preserve Notre Dame against the orders of his Socialist Regime. 80 years later and the Socialist still haven't given up. But I wonder. Europe barely survived a war with the Muslims and then a war with the Socialists. Now that those two have joined forces against her, she may be doomed. I don't expect the US will come to her rescue this time. Our Greatest Snowflake Generation are too busy wondering what gender they are today to storm any beaches for a higher cause. No such thing as a higher cause to them, (other than global hoaxing). Maybe for that...

On Tuesday, The Guardian broke the story of the key claim of a new book by Michael Wolff: Special Counsel Robert Mueller drew up a three-count indictment against Donald Trump for obstruction of justice — one of the documents the outlet says they’ve obtained and reviewed. The stunning revelation is contained in Siege: Trump Under Fire, which will be published a week from now, on 4 June. It is the sequel to Fire and Fury, Wolff’s bestseller on the first year of the Trump presidency which was published in 2018," the left-leaning outlet reports.

Former Republican Congressman Steve Stockman is fighting back against The Swamp. He was targeted by powerful Democrats and wrongly convicted of misusing nonprofit funds. Corrupt, left-leaning prosecutors in the Department of Justice went after him because he called for the arrest of the IRS’s Lois Lerner, was the first to expose Obama’s ransom payment for Bowe Bergdahl, and aggressively rooted out corruption under both Bill Clinton’s and Barack Obama’s presidencies. He made the Drudge Report during his most recent term in office more than any other House member.

Bill Weld conceded in an interview this week that Republican voters have little appetite for his insurgent primary bid to block President Trump from renomination in 2020. The former Massachusetts governor did not dispute Trump’s high approval ratings with self-identified Republicans, nor claim a silent groundswell for his long shot campaign. But Weld predicted Trump would grow vulnerable to a primary challenge in the months ahead, insisting his campaign was a key element in softening the political support the president enjoys inside the GOP.

In a book from the 1950s entitled And Not a Shot is Fired: How Parliament Can Play a Revolutionary Part in the Transition to Socialism, Jan Kozak, a Czech Communist, explains how Czechoslovakia was transformed from a free country into a communist dictatorship in 1948 without armed revolution taking place. They voted the communists in and, once they had a taste of power, they held on to it for 40 years. That would not be possible in the United States, right? After all, President Trump has said America will never be a socialist country.

The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Few things offend Bernie Sanders as much as people escaping from command-and-control government systems, even minority students whose parents are desperate to get their kids a decent education. The socialist wants to turn George Wallace on his head and not block black children from attending traditional public schools but block them from exiting them for something better. The New York Times the other day wrote a long, devastating report on the then-Burlington, Vt., mayor’s love affair with the Sandinistas in the 1980s. So many decades later, his reflex is the same: If the Sandinistas wouldn’t favor it, he’s not inclined to like it much, either.

It is tempting for normal people to ignore our president when he starts ranting about treason and corruption at the FBI. I understand the temptation. I’m the object of many of his rants, and even I try to ignore him. But we shouldn’t, because millions of good people believe what a president of the United States says. In normal times, that’s healthy. But not now, when the president is a liar who doesn’t care what damage he does to vital institutions. We must call out his lies that the FBI was corrupt and committed treason, that we spied on the Trump campaign and tried to defeat Donald Trump.

The New York Times has made waves with a new report on sightings by U.S. Navy aviators of unidentified flying objects between 2014 and 2015. But the UFO issue, which follows a similar 2017 story, is far more interesting than the reporters let on. The U.S. government does not know what these UFOs actually are. The report focuses on witnesses of so-called "Tic Tacs," but other shapes and sizes of UFOs have also been credibly recorded by the U.S., British, Chinese, Russian, and other governments for the past 65 years. But what are these strange things? Most informed individuals I have talked to believe that the Tic Tac-like UFOs are unmanned vehicles
