As regards Notre Dame, the central pieces, the most important pieces were left, the Cross, the statue of Mary and the Rose Windows. You see that?

Take what you want from it!

Whoever did it, (((whoever * ))) can't finish off the Teaching of Jesus!

Swamp dwellers everywhere!
"Money at All Costs" is their philosophy.

How Trump Filled The Swamp

In reality, swamps are really neat places compared to bankster infested political cesspools and the putrid sewers of shitstream media.

Swamps are great hiding places for dear during hunting season.

!!Cause for Laughing Celebration!!!

Iran has identified 290 CIA agents across different countries, forcing the US to form a special committee to reassess its cloak-and-dagger operations, Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi says.

“CIA operatives in those countries were identified and arrested and the contacts of the US intelligence agency with its sources were disrupted in such a way that a committee to assess the failure was set up in America,” Alavi said during Friday prayers in Tehran.

He touched on what numerous US spy experts have said about the major intelligence defeat, making reference to a specific November 2018 Yahoo News article that had interviewed numerous American spy experts over the
“incredibly damaging” incident.

The article claimed that Iranian intelligence had gained access to a secret CIA communications system, allowing Iranians to not only discover and detain US assets in the country, but also probably share key findings with Chinese and Russian authorities.

“When these types of compromises happen, it’s so dark and bad,” said a former official speaking to Yahoo.

“When this was going on, it was all that mattered,” said another former intelligence community official describing the gravity of the American intelligence setback.

CIA officials were consequently worried about the network “totally unwinding worldwide”, according to the article.

“Iran was aggressively going out to hunt systems down,” said one former official. “They weren’t just protecting themselves anymore.”

Referring to the article, Iran’s intelligence minister specifically highlighted a quote from American national security analyst Irvin McCullough, who described the major American intelligence setback as “one of the most catastrophic intelligence failures” since the September 11 attacks in 2001.

Alavi said that further details of the operations would be publicized soon, adding that a similar successful counter-espionage operation had been carried out against Britain’s MI6 intelligence service.

The Iranian minister added that the breakthrough comes as his ministry has shifted from focusing on defensive operations to conducting offensive counter-intelligence operations, some of which had even “expanded deep” into Israel.

“There was an outcry in Israel; some members of their cabinet were cooperating with the Intelligence Ministry of the Islamic Republic of Iran”, said Alavi.

Alavi went on to highlight some of the ministry’s other successful intelligence operations, saying that they had “traumatized” foreign services.

Kudos to you Iran…may the good forces be with you to fight the criminals/impostors of the Hebrew religion and stolen lands that exist around you and that aim to destroy your beautiful and authentic people of Iran. I love Iranians and I am not one…but they are real, a true civilization…and not criminal pharisees.

What might Macron’s ‘even more beautiful’ Notre-Dame be like?
Imagining France in 2024

August 24, 2024

At the opening today of the rebuilt Notre-Dame Cathedral, after the disastrous fire in April 2019, President Macron defended his decision to retask it with a new mission as a ‘house for all faiths, and also for those who have no faith.’

‘Notre Dame is a symbol of France, it has been reconstructed as a symbol of France, and so it is perfectly normal that its magnificence be accessible to everyone,’ the president said. The new Notre-Dame was even better than the old one.

The new Notre-Dame is controversial and has divided critics. They have accused it of being little more than a tourist attraction. Wasn’t it ever thus? While it will continue to be free to admire the building from the outside, entry within shall now attract a hefty fee.

The event spaces are also controversial. The Catholic hierarchy objected strongly but it was felt that substantial revenues could be gained. It is promised that events will be educational, cultural and spiritual, not commercial. But there are those who warn of fine lines and possible conflicts.

Also provoking argument: the renaissance Notre-Dame is even accused by some of not actually existing at all, because of the intense use of virtual reality and hologram technology. The five-year timetable for reconstruction could not have been met had their been actual construction. The reconfigurable spire which, includes a minaret mode for Ramadan, is visible from space.

There was not the timber nor the craftsmen to rebuild the roof, so instead there is a virtual roof, made of reflective nylon, which is even better, as it also serves as a screen for laser projectors, recreating the former ceiling in 4000K high definition.

The building is now open on the inside, with pop-up altars and environment-friendly LEDs replacing votive candles. Because the hefty computer center (actually in Evry, about 40 km away) is capable of dynamically reconfiguring spaces and customizing user experience, it is possible for a Muslim visitor to conjure himself in a mosque, while a Jew may summon a mikvah. It is quite Aladdin like, and no coincidence that Disney was a key provider of technology.

Catholics, who to be honest are few in number in France, have protested the appropriation of their space by secular and even competing faith activity. ‘You will pardon me if I fail to understand the LVMH multifaith chapel,’ sniffs one angry priest, with whom I share a pastis or two at a nearby café.

But there has been strong reaction to criticism of the Chapel of Asylum, with those raising questions accused by Bernard Henri-Levy of being racists.

There is a certain magnificence to the beautiful cleaned stone walls, and a poignancy to the interior emptiness, since it is entirely void, all interiors otherwise ‘created’ electronically.

The fire at Notre-Dame cathedral could have been the end of Macron, capping a calamitous period in his presidency with the images of the inferno in the heart of Paris. Instead, it is where he found his voice.

Marion Maréchal Le Pen had proved a formidable opponent, but Macron’s victory with 54 percent of the second-round vote on April 23, 2022 was more than convincing. He was older, gray hair having taken over, the youthful dimples morphing into creases. The arrogance had gone. When he presided at the Olympics opening ceremony on July 26, 2024, Brigitte at his side, still fragrant aged 71, he was the senior statesman of Europe.

Notre-Dame redoux is not merely a triumph for France, but a triumph for Macron. Ceux sont les journées des miracles et des merveilles.

“No one thought Jared or Ivanka believed in Trump’s populist platform,” Ward writes. A “prominent broker” told her that, “The two of them see this as a networking opportunity.”

Later in Kushner, Inc., Ward expands on this by delving into Ivanka’s possible ambitions to become president — a theory journalist Michael Wolff also explored in his 2018 book, Fire and Fury.

“Balancing risk against reward, both Jared and Ivanka decided to accept roles in the West Wing over the advice of almost everyone they knew. It was a joint decision by the couple, and, in some sense, a joint job,” Wolff wrote last year. “Between themselves, the two had made an earnest deal: If sometime in the future the opportunity arose, she’d be the one to run for president. The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton; it would be Ivanka Trump.”


Jarhead and Yvanka thrived in Casablanca
Their daddies were the friends of zionista gangsta
All in bed together, they made a lot of moolah
They kept on bombing Syria and threatening the mullah

And they did all they could to make trump rich again.

"Donald Trump’s sycophantic fawning over Israel—undoubtedly under the influence of his Orthodox Jewish son-in-law—has opened the floodgates: the US embassy moved to Jerusalem, Trump signed off on Israel’s theft of Syria’s Golan Heights, and of most value for Israel, the US under Trump is ramping up rhetoric, imposing additional sanctions, and promising military action against Iran. The latest move: Trump has designated Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization (and the Iranians in turn designated the US Central Command as a terrorist organization)."
