France is under attack, but I’ll show you a 21st century Joan of Arc who just might be the one to save the country, a young woman joining the armed forces and calling upon all patriotic French to do so too.
As I showed you the other day, Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s National Front Party, is leading the polls — and this poll was taken the day before the Nice truck attack, and before the beheading of the priest. I bet her lead is five points higher now.
But let me tell you about her niece, Marion Le Pen. She was elected four years ago, at just 22 years of age. And she’s a star — so articulate, so effective.
After the recent spate of attacks, Marion Le Pen did something spectacular:
She joined the French military. A sitting MP, joining to fight.
She announced it on Twitter, and invited “all young patriots to do the same.”
2,500 signed up immediately.
Like the Brits voting for Brexit, like the Hungarians voting against more Muslim refugees, like Americans for Trump, the National Front isn’t leading because it’s racist. It’s leading because it’s the only party listening to its citizens — citizens who, in France, are bleeding right now, while the socialist men in charge hide behind bodyguards.

Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein joins me to explain how it's reached the point where the Alberta government is “suing itself.”
