Conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s April 27th appearance at UC Berkeley was cancelled by the school, citing security concerns.

The victory of Marine Le Pen spells doom for the EU and the soft-coup over France by immigrants. The European Parliament voted to lift the immunity from prosecution for Le Pen for tweeting graphic images of executions by ISIS. She tweeted the photos in 2015, after a journalist compared her party to ISIS, in an effort to show the difference between her nationalist political party and the extreme violence of ISIS terrorists. If she is prosecuted and convicted, she could face up to 3 years in prison and a fine of more than $100,000.
