Indeed. Europe needs more like him.

I hope this makes the Fla. Sheriff's deputy hang his head in shame...

TM:
Excellent topic for the blog.
Thank you for providing this forum for us.
Hope all the Maguires are doing well.

maryrose

Catsmeat and Clarice:
My thank you to both of you is on the previous thread.

GUS

I've read everything I can about the FRENCH POLICE and FORMER MILITARY hero.
HE IS A HERO.
He purposefully gave his life for those he swore to PROTECT.

Bradley Manning AND Bowe Bergdahl AND numerous TALIBAN "generals" .....were given a PASS by OBAMA.

Think about that.

Did the Gray Slut mention the French hero was a practicing Catholic? Europe needs more of them, too. Wake me when Pope Che mentions Lt. Col. Arnaud Beltrame's faith and sacrifice.

France honors a great hero. Officer died after bravely swapping places with hostage in ISIS related terror attack. So much bravery around the world constantly fighting radical Islamic terrorism. Even stronger measures needed, especially at borders!

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the horrible attack in France yesterday, and we grieve the nation’s loss. We also condemn the violent actions of the attacker and anyone who would provide him support. We are with you @EmmanuelMacron!


GUS

Anonamom, I am CATHOLIC, and I pray for this brave man.
The converse to being a brave POLICE OFFICER, is being a COWARDLY MUZZZ TERRORIST.

Am I allowed to say that????

Jack is Back!

I was going to post that story of Beltrames but I didn't know how a French hero would go over here. But he is one and gave his life to save others. No other courage or bravery can match that.

BTW, Cassaronne is one of the most beautiful, wonderful cities in the world. To walk the ramparts and enjoy the incredible views. If you go to southeastern France it is a must visit. Trebés is a small village next to it and the last time I was there everyone was sleeping.

Heroic Frenchmen? Surpising. (the next Geico ad)

Jack is Back!

Stormy is lucky to have Anderson Vandberbilt to interview her.He is the only man on the set (I think) who doesn't want to screw her unless she is packing.

Jack is Back!

Dave,

Got any American cops who have switched their place for a woman and gave up their lives?

Frau Nie Wieder

Did Ms. Stormy have to take DJT to court in order to collect her fee? Were any pets threatened? Was she called a stalker in tabloids? Has she suffered humiliation at the hands of Car-vile or the Forehead?

Did she have to put any ice on it?
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Dave (in MA)

Certainly not in Parkland, JiB.

Jack is Back!

Yeah, I know. A little to gratituous when you think about what the guy in France did. Just saying.

Hero's are not just an American comic book invention.

I wouldn't touch her with a 10 foot pole, as we used to say.

Thank YOU, maryrose.
Carcassonne is where many crusaders left for the Holy Land. It is relatively untouched--at least the old city. There's a traditional belief in that part of the country there that the three Mary's who witnesses Christs tomb arrived i\in the area by boat and lived there until their death--wikipedia"The three saints Mary Magdalene, Mary Salome and Mary of Clopas are believed to be the women who were the first witnesses to the empty tomb at the resurrection of Jesus. After the Crucifixion of Jesus, the Marys were said to set sail from Alexandria, Egypt with their uncle Joseph of Arimathea. According to a
longstanding French legend, they either sailed to or were cast adrift - arriving off the coast of what is now France, at "a sort of fortress named Oppidum-Râ". The location became known as Nôtre-Dame-de-Ratis (Our Lady of the Boat - Râ being used in ratis, or boat) (Droit, 1963, 19). The name was later changed to Notre-Dame-de-la-Mer. In 1838, it was changed to Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-M"

I know I do sometimes. Did he write a new dumb thing?

He doesn't like Trump, but tolerates MAGA, unlike some of the others.

GUS

The ENERGIZER??? He wasn't banging her 12 years ago. OR WAS HE.
So RODHAM'S hubbie is banging someone other than RODHAM, during Rodham's bumbling stumbling CRAPTASTIC attempt to be YOUR PRESIDENT.

Thanks frau, for the link on St. Maximillan Kolbe.
My memory needed refreshing, my soul, inspiring. Did both.


How did Trump arrange for this game to go into overtime???


My 85 year old momma's reaction to the 60 Minute interview:
"Who cares?"
And she's no Trump supporter.

GUS

STEVE KROFT has a great story on 60 minutes tonight.

Says GUS.

anonamom

Duke just lost

Captain Hate

I don't think Slick's banging anybody. I mean, look at him; Teddy's vomit looks more likely to get it up. There's only so much chemicals can do. He and the Energizer just get naked and watch porn.

Captain Hate

Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

maryrose

Anonamom:
I thought the exact same thing wrt the overtime game messing up the interview.
I am sure CBS will air the full interview and be unaware that it makes them look like cheap voyeurs and sleazy wannabees.
What a bunch of losers!

GUS

Capn, you may be right about Billy the Rapist, however, as "Curb dive" ran...errrrrrr....stumbled to her LOSS.....her SICKLY husband, was KNOWN to be INVOLVED with another WOMAN. How "hard" HEH HEH, did the AMERICAN MFM, delve into THAT????

maryrose

CH:
I knew Duke would lose when it went to overtime.
That last shot in regulation should have had someone up there with a follow through or at the very least a rebound.

maryrose

Frau:
Love the St Maximilian story and the Three Marys journey.
France has such an interesting history.

I hope CNN hires Master Hogg asap so I will never have to see or hear him again

I didn't watch the replay close enough but that ball rattled around so much it seemed like time had expired when it finally rolled out.

That is fascinating, clarice.

The REPLAY call was ridiculous. Replay in ANY SPORT is a fools errand. It is as SUBJECTIVE as anything could be.

I see the Indiana Pacers made it to the NBA playoffs.

The French fought 16 years in indochina, back to back, back in the 80s, they called in a strike on baalbek, the only retaliation to the attacks on the embassies and marine barracks, now their leadership has generally been substandard.

Lt. Col. Arnaud Beltrame - Never Forget

JimNorCal

An interesting comment from PL
If true then a veto would have meant more humiliation. Not to say DJT could not have rattled alarm bells earlier but it was not going to work.

"This was all planned out ahead of time.

Pass the bill they day before the deadline for a government shut down.

The Senate sent the bill in one vote short of an override. They wanted to send a message to Trump while allowing themselves to pretend otherwise. If you look at who voted nay you would see they had plenty of votes to override. And look at what sleazy Ryan did. the House voted 217 to 2o7, just enough to pass it. But they also had enough votes to override."

narcisocenfl

And when Sarkozy called attention, while Obama was AWOL, I linked the marseillaise

GUS

JimNorCal, TRUMP and his PEEPS, knew the law, the Statutes etc, when Mister Trump.....signed the most recent Continuing resolution. It was 3D chess....at least. The SCREEEEEEECHING from SCHUMER and PELOSI shall ensue.

Dear President Trump. Git r done.

A 73 year old very talkative and friendly Hindu gentleman who I chat with often at the Hotel Lobby was just watching the BBC reporting on Stormy. He came up to me since we are decent buds and have been on and off chatting the last 3 days here and he said that the Stormy Daniels brouhaha reminds him of a joke he says he recalled that as 10 year old Indian schoolboys they all hooted about among themselves 60 years ago.

Here's the joke:

What ever happened to Helena Rubinstein?

I referred to the doomed voyage of the HMS terror, in 1845, which a&e has turned into a horror film, ala aliens

What's wrong with Grayson Allen, aside from being a Duke "student"?

Catsmeat

Thanks, maryrose, Ext, and especially GUS--I'd add that we are lucky at JOM but we have to keep being humble and kind to keep on being lucky. Super smart and full of knowledge we are all totally already are! In fact, a better room full of know-it-alls I've never before encountered (speaking as a hopeless know-it-all myself--in fact, my whole family is, I'm afraid).

I hadn't examined all the lyrics of skyfall like Joan's link, Danny boyle, the one who did that ridiculous tribute to the nhs at the Olympics will do the next one, what could go wrong.

Danube noticed that it left a bad taate in his mouth, because among other things bond couldn't save m. One does have to look upon him as a tragic hero, he was an orphan, his first great love, vesper was murdered, in the original arc he was wife was too. What would keep someone like that keep going, merely a sense of duty?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Catsmeat,

What a good point! I am watching an interview with the cast members of the new Roseanne Show and one of the things they are shooting for is to bring people together, because the country is so polarized.

All cast members seem to be talking about how the working class has been so much affected by the last 20 years and the election and such. It's really interesting because they seem to be sincere about trying to do something to help the country and to let people see what average people's families go through.

JOM is the same way, and I hope we can continue to improve on discussions and not getting arrogant about our opinions.

When this video is finished I will post it.

Catsmeat

Frau, also thank you for the link to that wonderful and so brave saint--and so like the Frenchman. His choosing both the white and red crown in that early vision--that's something to remember.

And the lovely idea of Hogg joining CNN so you (and the rest of us) don't have to watch him: much appreciated!

Momto2

I found this interesting from one of the articles about the French hero.

'After a pilgrimage to Sainte-Anne-d'Auray in 2015, when he asked the Virgin Mary to meet the woman of his life, he became friends with Marielle, whose faith is deep and discreet.

'The engagement was celebrated at the Breton abbey of Timadeuc at Easter 2016.

Question for my Catholic friends - is this a common practice? So touching that although they had a civil ceremony, they were married by the priest in the hospital just before his death.


Dave (in MA)

JiB seemed to think that I was saying that Beltrame wasn't being heroic or something. Come at me bro.

GUS

Catsmeat. Thank you for your kind words. I am humbled.

GUS

Dave in MA. I know JiB, and he is most certainly kind and honorable. I'm certain he meant no malice.

Momto2, I am CATHOLIC and consider myself thdevout/ and/or knowledgable. This is NOT common, and if true is quite SPECIAL. I have my own opinions as to what is appropriate and what is OUTSIDE of nominal Catholic doctrines or principles.
It seems to me, that in the SECULAR world that we live in, this FRENCH HERO, and there is ZERO DOUBT that this man is a HERO BEYOND IMAGINATION....he and his beloved were proper and appropriate....as to the FRENCH LAW. It also occurs to me, that they fully intended to FULFILL the obligations of the CATHOLIC CHURCH.

GOD BLESS THIS MAN, and GOD PROTECT his WIFE and FAMILY.
