French candidate for President, Marine Le Pen, had some harsh words for the French government in the aftermath of Thursday’s Muslim terrorist attack.

“My feeling is that nothing is being done, and our citizens are not safe. We need a plan to fight Islamist terrorism with new measures, and with borders, and to fight the ideology that is at the root of all of this.”

Le Pen is seen by many as the most likely candidate to win the upcoming presidential election. She is often called “right-wing” but the leader of the National Front, is not exactly a traditional conservative. In fact, her party is home to people from both the right and the left. There are economic populists and avowed socialists, the more common uniting factor among the party members is their stand against immigration (mostly illegal but they also don’t seem to like legal immigrants either).

Reacting to the atrocities, Le Pen called for the Socialist government to “immediately” tighten borders and deport all foreigners on a terror watch list.

“Islamism is a monstrous totalitarian ideology that has declared war on our nation, on reason, on civilisation,” the Front National leader said in Paris.

“Hate preachers must be expelled, the Islamist mosques closed.”

She criticised outgoing Socialist President Francois Hollande as “notoriously feeble” and said France was “worn out by inaction”.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
