French President Macron Declares “Social and Economic” State of Emergency….


With massive civil unrest overwhelming many parts of French society, President Emmanuel Macron made a televised speech to the nation attempting to calm the anger. Macron declared a social and economic state of emergency and attempted to stop the ongoing Yellow Vest protests by announcing a special year-end bonus.

In addition to the year-end bonus, during the national address from the Elysee Palace Macron announced an increase in the minimum wage of €100 per month; a tax exemption on overtime pay; and a plan to not raise taxes on pensioners with an income less than €2,000/month.  Here’s the english version of the EU broadcast.

When the same issues happened in Venezuela, Maduro followed a similar plan… things didn’t end well.   Macron has already committed the full weight of his police and military to crush any uprising.  Tenuous times in France.

1,400 Arrests in France as Yellow Vest Protests Spread Across Europe…


French President Emmanuel Macron may have maneuvered to block the growing uprising, but it’s quite possible he’ll lose his presidency in the process. French police took a much more aggressive posture this weekend.  The violence is disturbing.

In an effort to stop a replay of last week’s violence, French police moved in pre-dawn raids to round up those they identified as leaders of the Yellow Vest protest movement. In the city of Paris over 800 arrests were made by Macron’s forces and the French military were deployed. Overall, throughout France more than 1,400 arrests were made so far.

As the sun set, less organized protests continued as frustrated French set fire to cars, burned barricades and smashed windows in isolated geographic pockets within the city. Police forces were boosted to around 8,000 across Paris, with EU armored vehicles deployed in the city of lights for the first time in modern history. The pictures are stunning.

Germany’s Most Beautiful Policewoman Told to Be a Cop or a Model


One of the clear cultural differences between Europe and the United States is that they even have the “hottest” female police officer – Adrienne Koleszar. That is something they just would not do in the United States. We hold Senate hearings because Janet Jackson’s breast popped out on TV at the Super Bowl. It is interesting that from the outside looking in, America is viewed as being prudish, to put it mildly.  Yet Adrienne’s boss told her she had to choose between being a cop or a model.

I appeared in Dresden but the police who were there to keep the crowds in line certainly did not look like her. The people were very warm and they even handed me a bouquet of flowers at the end of my presentation. Never had that in any other city I have ever made a presentation.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer Replaces Merkel


Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer was elected by the CDU party congress in the second ballot by a narrow majority to the new CDU chairmen. Kramp-Karrenbauer received 51.75% of the delegate votes, Friedrich Merz 48.25% of the vote. Jens Spahn was eliminated after the first ballot. Therefore, the CDU has sealed its fate. Kramp-Karrenbauer will maintain the policies of Merkel and will not push Merkel out of office. This is setting things up for a stronger rise of the AfD and puts the CDU at risk of dividing yet over the Refugee Issue.

Hillary should have just learned to speak German.

Sacrebleu !! Macron Shuts Down Paris in Attempt To Stop Protests, Deploys 89,000 Police Around France….


Yikes, and a simultaneous ‘Wow’.  French President Emmanuel Macron has officially shut down Paris this weekend in his attempt to stop the “Yellow Vest” populist uprising against current political policies.

The primary tourist venues are all closed; shops ordered to close; windows boarded up; 8,000 police units dispatched to Paris and 89,000 deployed throughout the country.

PARIS (Reuters) – Paris was in lockdown early on Saturday with thousands of French security forces braced to meet renewed rioting by “yellow vest” protesters in the capital and other cities in a fourth weekend of confrontation over living costs.

The Eiffel Tower and other tourist landmarks were shut, shops were boarded up to avoid looting and street furniture removed to avoid metal bars from being used as projectiles. About 89,000 police were deployed across the country.

Of these, about 8,000 were deployed in Paris to avoid a repeat of last Saturday’s mayhem when rioters torched cars and looted shops off the famed Champs Elysees boulevard, and defaced the Arc de Triomphe with graffiti directed at President Emmanuel Macron.

Protesters, using social media, have billed the weekend as “Act IV” in a dramatic challenge to Macron and his policies.

The protests, named after the high-visibility safety jackets French motorists have to keep in their cars, erupted in November over the squeeze on household budgets caused by fuel taxes.

Demonstrations have since swelled into a broad, sometimes-violent rebellion against Macron – a challenge made more difficult to handle since the movement has no formal leader. (read more)

If you don’t think these global elites take this stuff seriously, and are willing to go to any length to stop political nationalist uprisings, just take a look at how far they are willing to go with this one.

This isn’t Tehran or Beijing… this is Paris. Proving, once again, that globalism is really just the glove covering the hand of oppressive totalitarianism.

Next stop…. shut down the internet in France.

Merkel Says Goodbye as Leader of CDU


Merkel said goodbye at the CDU meeting today. She intends to remain as Chancellor until 2021. However, the victor will be positioned to succeed Merkel as chancellor and influence whether she stays or bows out before her term ends in 2021. Although Merkel is widely known for her caution and changing positions with her internal poll team, she has been a shrewd disrupter of the German party system and has moved the CDU to the middle of the political spectrum. Her downfall has been her opening up Europe to all the pretend “refugees” that poured in from everywhere but Syria. The rushed into Europe for the welfare system with no requirement for skills or language. About 70% were just young males, not families with children as the press only photographed. That single decision has been the most destructive for the European project.

The frontrunners in this election today are Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who is a Merkel protege and is seen as the continuity candidate who will change nothing, so the CDU would change the face but nothing else. Then there is Friedrich Merz, who has been a Merkel rival questioning the constitutional guarantee of asylum to all “politically persecuted” and believes Germany, Europe’s biggest economy, should contribute more to the European Union. These are very stake differences in policy but this is NOT a public election but politicians who decide. Party leadership is typically the springboard to the chancellorship so this is really a critical decision for the CDU

BREXIT and the Chaos Unleashed by Prime Minister May


 

The European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that the UK can unilaterally cancel its withdrawal from the EU at any time and that will not be subject to a vote by other EU member states. This is a non-binding opinion that was delivered by an advocate general of the European Court of Justice. The ECJ said it will deliver its final ruling at a later date.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Theresa May has refused to release documents that would control the BREXIT deal she crafted. She lost an unprecedented three parliamentary defeats in a single day. The member of Parliament moved to hold her government in contempt. Her government said the documents would be handed over after MPs passed a historic motion finding the government in contempt of parliament for failing to previously publish the details. She said Wednesday night’s defeats made leaving the EU without a deal much more likely. She further urged colleagues to return to the deal when they voted on it next Tuesday.

The Irish border BREXIT Backstop has been a key part of the BREXIT negotiations that is about the border which separates Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The EU position is that they will ONLY approve a BREXIT deal with the UK if it includes an agreement on the Irish border whereby it becomes a hard border. They argue their standards on anything can be circumvented if there are no border checks. They effectively want a wall between the two parts of Ireland based upon different customs and regulatory regimes, not to mention TAXES!!!! All goods traveling back and forth in Ireland they are demanding border guards and checks. As always – just follow the money.

Meanwhile, a string of Conservative colleagues has urged the prime minister to change her plans for Brexit, which are due to be voted on next Tuesday, December 11th. She is facing almost certain defeat when MPs vote on the withdrawal agreement on 11th December. Under the terms of May’s deal, Northern Ireland alone could end up in a customs union with the EU under the terms of the BREXIT Backstop. Unlike anything else, if the UK signed that deal, there is no mechanism for them to ever change it. They would be surrendering right to Brussels forever!

It is interesting how the computer picked up this period for sheer chaos in the markets of Europe

Macron Blinks – French Prime Minister to Announce Suspension of “Fuel Tax”…


Breaking overnight the French government is attempting to stem the growing civil unrest by announcing they will suspend the plan to implement the upcoming fuel tax.  However, the Yellow Vest protests have grown to personify much more than a new fuel tax.

The protests have morphed into a much larger anger about the influence of a disconnected elite political class, personified by President Emmanuel Macron, over the lives of the ordinary French citizen.  The fuel tax was the last straw, the underlying issues remain.

(Via Associated Press) PARIS (AP) — French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe is to announce a suspension of fuel tax hikes, a major U-turn in an effort to appease a protest movement that has radicalized, French media reported Tuesday.

Both Le Monde newspaper and France Info radio said the planned increase, which has provoked riots, will be suspended for several months. Philippe is also expected to announce other measures aimed at easing tensions, just three weeks after claiming that the government would not change course and remained determined to help wean French consumers off polluting fossils fuels.

Philippe will make an announcement later Tuesday to legislators from President Emmanuel Macron’s party. There was no immediate comment from his office Tuesday morning.

It’s unlikely Philippe’s announcement will put an end to the road blockades and demonstrations, with more possible protests this weekend in Paris.

“It’s a first step, but we will not settle for a crumb,” said Benjamin Cauchy, one of the leaders of the protests.

After a third consecutive weekend of clashes in Paris led by protesters wearing distinctive yellow traffic vests, Philippe held crisis talks with representatives of major political parties on Monday. He also met with Macron and other ministers in order to find a quick solution to the crisis.

Facing the most serious street protests since his election in May 2017, Macron has canceled a two-day trip to Serbia to stay in France this week.  (read more)

Large groups of French civil servants have joined in unity with the overall Yellow Vest movement.  A disconnected President Macron, representing the elite globalist views held by out-of-touch French politicians, is in real trouble….

Michael Avenatti Has been Raising Money from the Public to Fund his Actions which is now Under Investigation


Stormy Daniels has come out and publicly stated that Michael Avenatti launched a site to raise money for her defense which pays him without her permission. The campaign raised $600,000 and she has also stated that she has no idea what happened to that money. CrowdJustice said it is now investigating what Avenatti did and now they are investigating another fundraising site he created to help families at the Mexican border which raised $159,863. He claimed this was a campaign on behalf of “a group of detained mothers and children,” but there is absolutely nothing that specifies the names of the beneficiaries. for whom the money is being raised.

Whatever money Stormy Daniels accepted to remain silent is now a breach of contract. Who is going to repay that money she would have to return? Avenatti
