Notre Dame Priest Hailed as Hero After Bravely Securing Relics

This wasn’t Fournier’s first brush with Parisian tragedy either.

Notre Dame

The horror that we watched unfold yesterday afternoon was enough to make American stomachs turn from thousands of miles away.

The grandiose cathedral at Notre Dame in Paris was ablaze, scorching the 800+ years of history of the sacred place of worship.  Worse still, the construction of the cathedral, as well as it’s location on a busy island in the middle of one of the world’s most populated areas, didn’t allow for firefighters to work within their full capacity.

And while many are mourning the loss of this incredible architecture, the faithful had other reasons to be concerned, as Notre Dame was the home of a great many important religious artifacts, including pieces of Jesus Christ’s crown of thorns and portions of the cross on which he was crucified.

One priest is being hailed as a hero today after safely relocating these antiquities during the blaze.

Jean-Marc Fournier, chaplain of the Paris Fire Brigade, rushed straight for the relics housed in the cathedral to rescue the the Blessed Sacrament and the Crown of Thorns relics from the blazing building on Monday night.

It was feared that both religious artefacts would be lost as flames engulfed the medieval building, but Father Fournier made sure they were taken to safety.

This was Fournier’s first taste of tragedy, however.

Four years ago he also comforted the wounded after the worst terrorist attack on Paris this century when 89 people were massacred at the Eagles of Death Metal concert in 2015.

There has been no indication of foul play in the inferno, although it appears that Islamic extremists have begun to celebrate the fire as a blow to Christianity.

Howard Stern Says Donald Trump Secretly ‘Loves’ Mike Bloomberg: ‘He Knows How Strong The Guy Is’

Published

Radio shock jock Howard Stern should probably stick to the same old tired oversexualized schtick he used to discuss on his program because his attempts at doing political commentary leave a whole lot to be desired, as you’ll see for yourself when you read his comments about President Trump and Michael Bloomberg. According to Stern, Trump, who has been feuding with the president during a very heated Democratic Party presidential primary, secretly loves Bloomberg. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “I’ve talked to Donald a million times privately about Bloomberg. We both agree that he was one of the best f—ing mayors on the planet,” Stern said Monday on his SiriusXM radio show. “Donald loves Bloomberg,” he added. “That’s why he doesn’t want him running.” Trump has escalated his attacks on Bloomberg in recent weeks, mocking his height and debate performance as the Democrat pours hundreds of millions of dollars into his campaign. But Stern asserted it’s all a farce. “He knows how strong the guy is,” Stern said. “He loves him. We all love him. Donald would even say, ‘He’s better than I am.'” Stern went on to say that if Bloomberg cinched the nomination it would result in a “hell of a debate” between the two billionaires, going so far as to say that people who voted for Trump would vote for Bloomberg. As of right now, Bloomberg is polling in third place, though he is not participating in the primaries due to be held before Super Tuesday.

President Trump Rips Into CNN’s Jim Acosta After Being Accused Of Lying: ‘Worst Record In The History Of Broadcasting’

Published

President Trump, the world’s foremost expert in counterpunching against the leftist mainstream media, recently came out with fists of fury flying — in a proverbial sense — against CNN’s Jim Acosta after the reporter accused him of lying. During an afternoon press conference during his time in India, Acosta asked President Trump if he would make a pledge not to accept foreign assistance in the 2020 election, to which the president stated, “I want no help from any country.” Here’s how the rest of the incident played out via The Washington Examiner: “I haven’t been given help from any country. And if you see what CNN, your wonderful network said, I guess they apologized in a way for — didn’t they apologize for saying certain things that weren’t true?” the president inquired of Acosta, referring to CNN’s coverage of Russian interference in the 2016 election. “Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes, if you don’t mind me saying,” Acosta said to Trump, who fired back at the anchor’s history of reporting. “Your record is so bad, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You probably have the worst record in the history of broadcasting,” Trump said. The president and CNN have a track record of hostility with one another, something that is completely understandable given the fact that CNN and other left-wing networks have dedicated their air time to pushing narratives that aren’t fully factual in a bid to undermine the current administration. Trump, unlike previous presidents, isn’t afraid to dish out what he gets first, which is one reason so many people love him. The question now is when will Acosta learn to stop being so hostile and actually do his job?
