  1. Would you be interested in stories about the very real modern day American Patriots who are attempting to Take America Back from the Evil Forces in the UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT?

    As history tells us the French were allies of the American Colonists in their fight for Independence from the British Despots who ruled over them in a near Master – Slave relationship.

    TODAY – the Brit Despots have been replaced by the UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (controllers).

    Let me know your thoughts.

    You will be surprised what Real Americans are doing to STOP the out of control Despots in D.C.


  2. Are there any webcasts that people living in the United States would be able to watch in the evening ? I would be really interested in your programming but after a quick look, I could not find any event happening after 11pm (Paris time), besides the news.
