    Marine Le Pen Ordered To Stand Trial

    Right-wing French politician Marine Le Pen has been ordered to stand trial for tweeting photographs of ISIS atrocities in December 2015, weeks after IS jihadis murdered 130 people in Paris.

    A judge ruled in the Western Paris suburb of Nanterre ordered Le Pen to face a charge of circulating "violent messages that incite terrorism or pornography or seriously harm human dignity," which included the brutal beheading of journalist James Foley, according to France24. Another depicted a man in an orange jumpsuit being run over by a tank, while a third photo Le Pen posted was of captured Jordanian air force pilot Muath Al-Kasasbeh being burned alive in a cage in January 2015.
    "Daesh is this!" wrote Le Pen in a caption, using the terror group's Arabic acronym.

    Le Pen faces a maximum sentence of three years in prison and a fine of 75,000 Euros ($85,000 US).
    Last year, an investigative magistrate called for Le Pen to undergo psychiatric tests in connection with the IS tweets.
    The 50-year-old trained lawyer, whose party topped France's vote in the recent European elections, has denounced the case as a violation of her freedom of expression.

    Last year Le Pen, 50, was ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation to see if she was fit to stand trial. She has denounced the entire affair as a violation of her freedom of expression.

    "I am being charged for having condemned the horrors of Daesh," Le Pen said last year. "In other countries this would have earned me a medal."

    This is where the Jacobins in the US want us to be, and they will stop at nothing to achieve supremacy.

    This is why you have a bill of rights.

    The Anti Federalists' gift has kept us from the abyss in spite of all the damage it has taken over the generations, without it we would be one of the worst countries on the planet by now.

    GOD bless them, every one.
