London: Islamic Terrorist Attack on Westminster

An attacker – now named as 52-year-old Khalid Masood – killed two pedestrians and injured around 40 other people as he mowed down members of the public with a car on Westminster Bridge at about 2:40pm, before crashing into the railings in front of Parliament.

Understanding France’s New Populist Party, le Front National

The schism of pro- and anti-Front National is grounded less and less in political differences. Instead, the conflict increasingly takes the form of a sheer political polarity. For FN supporters, the immigrant is the figure that is undermining French culture, through his unwillingness to respect the ways things are done.

Obama Shows His True Colors as He Leaves Office

Barack Obama did not go out quietly. His unquiet final acts were overshadowed, in part by a successor who refused to come in quietly, and in part by Obama’s own endless, sentimental farewell tour. But there was nothing nostalgic or sentimental about Obama’s last acts. Two of them were simply shocking.
