“Everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame.” – Notre Dame spokesman Andre Finot

A catastrophic fire has engulfed Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, threatening one of the greatest architectural treasures of the Western world. Built in the 12th and 13th centuries, Notre Dame is the most famous of the Gothic cathedrals of the Middle Ages, known for, among other things, its many gargoyles and its iconic flying buttresses.

Giant Scorpion of the Apocalypse says:

Born again Christians hate Catholics, so this must have been done by born again Christians.

Sheridan Jakins says:

I suppose that it will not be long and the demoncrats will be blaming Trump for the fire at Notre Dame.

Alan Hunt says:

Time for the EU to get their wallet out and pay for it to be restored…..

tectonicD says:

The Catholic Church is completely evil and satanic! So glad it burned!

Xi Wang says:

the gods of Catholic, why don't you go to put out the fire? It's the house of the Virgin Mary!Oh Jesus.

Bruce Gau says:

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. 
Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. 
Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? 
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”
― Epicurus

Saffon Sage says:

Oh , well I see the good ole boys are playing with their direct energy weapons again.  I wonder what group or gang will be blamed for this fire to lead everybody away from the truth. Another propaganda move to get order out of Chaos, something from the sky blasted a hole thru the center of the cathedral roof and caused a very hot fire.

David Sims says:

Oh how carefully everyone is avoiding saying the obvious about possible causes of the fire. It began shortly after the workers went home. It spread quickly enough that it is reasonable to suppose that an accelerant was involved. It follows a significant uptick in arson/vandalism attacks on Catholic churches in France. And, well, certain recent arrivals in France have a history of setting things on fire: cars, buildings, etc. Also, don't the regulations require a fire-watch on any important construction site?

I really don't understand how the Paris police could "rule out" arson so quickly, before an investigation into the cause of the fire has even begun — unless they are following orders. Perhaps Emmanuel Macron does not want his immigration policies called into question.

Or maybe the French police have NOT ruled out arson. Maybe they have merely declined to give an opinion on the question, and the leftist media thereafter put words into their mouths, as we've seen them do so often in the past.

Yes! That is indeed the case. According to a timeline of events relating to the Notre Dame fire, which I found on the website of the Miami Herald…

At 7:30 (pm, local time), the French media quoted the Paris fire brigade saying the fire was "potentially linked" to the renovation work.

At 7:45, French authorities said the fire could be linked to renovation work.

At 7:55, the police in Paris said that the cause of the massive fire enveloping the spire of Notre Dame Cathedral wasn't yet known.

At 8:05, the timeline repeats that the cause of the blaze wasn't yet known.

At 11:15, the Paris prosecutor's office said that the fire was being regarded as "an accident for now." It also said that they have "ruled out" arson in "Monday's fire."

By what evidence did the prosecutor's office (not the police) do that ruling out? The investigation could hardly have been concluded so quickly. The declaration was obviously politically motivated, as it could not possibly have been the result of discovered facts.

The circumstantial evidence makes arson a very plausible explanation, and the Paris prosecutor's office has not had anywhere near enough time to make any determination to the contrary. The fact that the prosecutor did so anyway strongly implies a political motive for the declaration.

Christopher Diaz says:

another false flag as WTC 9/11

lenz0101 says:

Did they think about the possibility of being caught by fire when commencing their renovation project? And it seems that France doesn't have fire extinguishing planes/helicopters that people are watching this inferno in sorrow.

America First says:

Probably a good thing. That building was a eyesore and in the way for the new Mosque everyone's talking about.

Spartacus the Accuser says:

Babylon is slowly crumbling before our eyes. Sorry pale skin people, you won't get your world government under "white" Jesus.

Gvozden Zmajic says:

symbol of autodestruction of france

ron stewart says:

I HOPE CAMERAS CAUGHT THE PERSON THAT DID THIS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ri H says:

保佑圣母

Josly Rockslide says:

There's a webcam been found which suggests an ominous craft was just sitting in the sky for a few minutes prior to the fire….. Did some black ops elite from somewhere decide this was a good way to send a message to French leadership, or is this just pure accident?

​Notre Dame survived 800 years of candles and wars. It is burnt down with a
Spark during "renovations". Make sense. time for a surgical strike on the cursed cube.

Darrin Ward says:

They failed to report recent attempts to bring this church down… Red Flag #1 . They failed to fight the fire for well over an hour …Red Flag #2 … Once we could see from the many angles including cell phone footage fire fighters on the scene , a picture of one fire fighter and a hose . One fire Truck , in Paris France ? Red Flag number #3 …3 strikes …your out !
