Kadima! En Marche!

After having successively elected an agent of the CIA and an employee of the emirs of the Gulf to the Presidency of the French Republic, the French have been ripped off a third time, this time by an Israeli product. They believe that they have chased away the spectre of fascism by voting for a candidate supported by NATO, the Rothschilds, all the companies of the CAC40 and the unanimous Press. Far from understanding their mistake, they are still in a trance, and will probably not wake up before the end of the general elections.

As soon as his victory was announced, democratically elected President Emmanuel Macron defined a distance between himself and the People. Refusing to mingle with the crowd, he took a long, solitary walk across the courtyard of the Louvre where his supporters were gathered.

The team of elected French President Emmanuel Macron has managed to hypnotise the French nation. They managed to fabricate the election of their protégé with two thirds of the votes cast – a young man, only 39 years old, whose party was created on the Internet just one year ago, and who had until then never stood in any election.

Steele & Holt

This exploit was realised by the team of Steele & Holt, a mysterious company whose name refers to the TV series Remington Steele, a police procedural in which the director of a detective agency asks a thief (Pierce Brosnan) to play the rôle of her boss in order to serve as her cover.

Don’t bother trying to find out who is hiding behind this company – you’ll find nothing. Except for the fact that its two main clients are AXA and the Rothschild family. Everyone knows that Emmanuel Macron worked for the Rothschilds, but it’s a well-guarded secret that they organised his party. As for the insurance company AXA, it is presided by Henri de La Croix, fifth Duke of Castries, who is also president of the NATO think-tank (the Bilderberg group), the Bosphorus Institute (Turkey’s think-tank) and, in France, the Institut Montaigne (a right-wing think-tank).

Henry Kissinger also incidentally invited Macron to the annual meeting of the Bilderberg group in 2014, along with François Baroin and Christine Lagarde.

The Bosphorus Institute made it possible to identify and corrupt various personalities from the right and the left who lent their support to Macron.

The first meetings of the new party were held in the offices of the Institut Montaigne, whose headquarters were declared as the personal address of the Institut’s director.

Kadima !

The name of the new party - En Marche !, was chosen in order to have the same initials as its candidate. Otherwise, it would have been called En Avant ! In Hebrew - Kadima ! When it was pointed out to general Ariel Sharon that the name of his new party evoked the name of Mussolini’s party - Avanti ! - he retorted that that was not the case at all. En Avant ! was the order he gave to each of his special teams, for example when he invaded Beirut against the advice of his military staff.

Kadima ! and En Marche ! are centrist parties assembling personalities from the right and the left. Ariel Sharon was a well-known « centrist » who created his party in order to break away from Benjamin Netanyahu. Sharon was a colonialist who wanted to create a Palestinian state on the model of the South African Bantustans. For him, apartheid was the only way to preserve Israël. On the other hand, Netanyahu is a Talmudist. He refuses to accept the idea of sharing Palestine with the goyim. For him, they must be expelled, if they can’t be exterminated.

We will no doubt learn later why Macron wanted to break with the Socialist Prime Minister, Manuel Valls. For the moment, it’s enough to note the insistance with which Valls attempted to join En Marche ! and the flippancy with which Macron rejected him, to see that there is a serious conflict between them.

Fascism En Marche

In order to launch Macron, Steele & Holt – in other words NATO and the Rothschilds – relied on the old pro-US network of the Fondation Saint-Simon. Together, they staged the « peril Le Pen », so that many electors who are strongly opposed to Macron nonetheless voted for him for fear of a possible victory by the « foul beast ». Since there was little for which they could blame Marine Le Pen, they accused her of the crimes of her father... and many others.

This manipulation shows that in our « showbiz society », form is more important than content. Indeed, what are the characteristics of fascism ? The end of the class struggle, thanks to corporatism, which unites bosses and workers in the same organisations, the end of the right-left dialectic thanks to a unique party, and consequently, the end of all opposition by the use of force.

While the first of these three characteristics might have been applied to the vision of Jean-Marie Le Pen, none of them are valid for his daughter – however, the first two are applicable to the vision of Emmanuel Macron. He is supported by all the major bosses of the CAC40, as well as by the CGT. He does not question the capacity of the right- and left-wing parties to defend the values to which they claim to adhere, but calls their leaders to join him in his party to defend their common interests. There can be no doubt that if the general elections go the way Macron hopes, the destruction of the opposition will begin. Indeed, the unanimous support of the written Press for candidate Macron, and the campaign against dissenting Internet sites, give us a taste of things to come.

History repeats itself – in 1940, the French supported Philippe Petain in order to preserve themselves from Nazism, but it was Petain who installed fascism. In 2017, they voted for Macron in order to preserve themselves from fascism, yet he will be the one who installs it.

A hijacked campaign

It’s true that some electors were disturbed both by the unusual personality of the candidates and by a wealth of propaganda methods which have never been used in Europe since the Second World War.

At the age of 15, Emmanuel Macron had a sexual relation with his drama teacher, who was 23 years older, moved in with her, and then married her 15 years later. Marine Le Pen inherited the presidency of her party from her father – she first of all cleaned it up, and then excluded him from it. In psychoanalytical terms, Macron married his mother, and Le Pen killed her father.

Above all, Emmanuel Macron’s team did not hesitate to accuse his rivals of the worst forms of treason, without any logic, certain that the local and national Press – which it already controls in its entirety – would not dare to express the slightest criticism. The right-wing candidate, François Fillon, is now perceived as a thief, although not one of the accusations levelled against him has been verified. Marine Le Pen is considered to be the incarnation of fascism, although she has never supported the positions with which she is charged.

A solitary victory

As soon as his election was announced, President Macron gave a short speech from his campaign headquarters – a string of platitudes pronounced with the ponderous demeanour of a man who has suddenly felt the weight of his responsibilities descend upon his fragile shoulders. Then he offered himself a new moment of theatre with his supporters in the courtyard of the Louvre. He crossed Paris in a procession of limousines with tinted windows. He took a long, solitary, inaccessible walk across the courtyard of the Louvre to climb onto the podium which had been built in his honour. There, at the base of the pyramid, like Bonaparte, he delivered a new speech, once again consisting of verbiage, but this time in a frenzied tone - a man who has never seen combat. Finally, he gathered together with his family and a few militants to sing La Marseillaise.

Contrary to all his predecessors, at no time during this evening did he shake any hands. No-one was ever allowed to approach him. He allowed none of the political personalities who had supported him to appear alongside him and share his victory. They will only be able to collect the bounty of the betrayal of their respective parties by betraying them again and supporting him during the general elections in June.

It will only be when President Macron has a firm grasp on all the reins of power that he will allow France to wake up. It will be too late.

Forward, march !

Emmanuel Macron Keeps Lead in Race for French Presidency

The center-liberal candidate Emmanuel Macron is a clear favorite to win the presidential elections in France, with a comfortable lead of some 20 points over the ultra-right nominee Marine Le Pen.

If it is known that the representative of the National Front has carried out an aggressive campaign on the field, that does not seem to be reflected on vote intention showed by a survey of Ipsos/Sopra Steria, published this Tuesday in several news media.

According to the study, the young leader of the movement En Marche hoards between 57 to 63 percent of the support, while his rival has from 37 to 43 percent, having in mind the error margin.

According to the poll, Macron attracts the majority of voters who favored other candidates in the first round.

In that sense, 76 percent of socialist Benoit Hamon followers, plan to back up the center aspirant, 49 percent of those who backed conservative François Fillon and 47 percent of left-wing Jean-Luc Melenchon.

For her part, Le Pen only manages to attract 25 percent of Fillon backers, 19 percent of Melenchon's and five percent of those of Hamon.

Although Macron is in a much more favorable position, the study showed some nuances: of the total interviewed, only 20 percent really wants his victory, 40 percent will support him solely to prevent the triumph of Le Pen and 40 percent would prefer he was defeated.

On the other hand, the study asked about citizen perceptions on the two finalists and the young politician generates more confidence in the handling of European issues, the place of France in the world, the struggle against unemployment, the moralization of public life and the environment.

On Le Pen's side, she generates more confidence on the anti-immigration issues, fight against terrorism, the combat of crime and the redujction of social inequities.

As for participation, the survey indicated that only 75 percent plan on voting May 7, two points less than in the first round held on April 23.

If the forecast is confirmed, it would be the first time since the decade of 1970 that the attendance to polling stations falls from the first to the second round.

Decisive Stage of Election Campaign in France Begins

The campaign for the coming elections in France is now in its final and decisive stage, in the last week before the first round in which a total of 11 candidates will compete.

Presidential candidates will reinforce rallies, declarations, and public appearances, in order to win the vote of those still undecided, estimated at 34 percent of citizens, according to the latest Odoxa poll.

Analysts and media agree that the results of the first round will largely depend on the resolution of those who do not yet know who to vote for, although the high level of indecision could also lead to high abstention in a country where electoral participation average around 80 percent.

Of the 11 candidates, four lead the polls with fairly tight results, which introduces some uncertainty towards next Sunday's votes.

Centrist Emmanuel Macron and ultra-right Marine Le Pen remain at the top with about 23 percent of the support but experience a negative dynamic by losing three to five points in recent weeks.

By its part, the leftist Jean-Luc Melenechon continues the unstoppable rise since the end of March and is in third place with about 20 percent.

In the case of the right-wing François Fillon, after several weeks stalled, he now manages to recover some points up to 18 percent, according to the most recent studies.

Far more behind are the remaining candidates, including the socialist Benoit Hamon with 10 percent, and the six who fail to surpass the threshold of five percent: the centrists Jean Lassalle and Jacques Cheminade, the sovereignists Nicolas Dupont-Aignan and François Asselineau, as well as the leftists Nathalie Arthaud and Philippe Poutou.

Russia reserves right to meet any French politician it wants to – Putin to Le Pen

President Putin has told French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen in Moscow that Russia has no intentions to influence the French elections, but reserves the right to meet any French politicians it wishes.

“We attach a lot of importance to our relations with France, trying to maintain smooth relations with both the acting power and the opposition representatives,” Putin said.

"We don't want to influence in any way the events going on [in France], but reserve our right to communicate with all representatives of the country's political powers, as our partners do in Europe and in the US."

Putin and National Front candidate Le Pen did not discuss financing the latter’s campaign, the Russian President's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists at a press conference.

Putin underlined the necessity to unite against terrorism, citing common threats for both Russia and France.

Today, a grave event happened in Chechnya, in [Russia’s] North Caucasus – a unit of our National Guard was attacked by terrorists this morning. We all live in such difficult conditions. We should finally realize that this danger is real, and unite our efforts in the fight against terrorism.”

Six Russian military men died and three others were injured in the militant attack on a National Guard base in the Chechen Republic. Six terrorists who attacked the base, 70km northwest of the Chechen capital, Grozny, were killed.

Before her meeting with Putin, Le Pen spoke to Russia's parliamentary speaker, Vyacheslav Volodin, and said she supported close cooperation between the two countries.

I am in favor of developing relations with Russia in the context of the long history that links our two countries. I've pleaded at every level for cooperation between our countries in the fight against terrorism,” she said as cited by AFP.

French school shooting: 3 people injured, armed 17yo student detained in Grasse

Three people have been injured in a shooting at a school in Grasse, southern France, according to the interior ministry. A 17-year-old student carrying a rifle, two handguns, and two grenades has reportedly been arrested over the incident.

The teenager opened fire with the rifle, shooting and injuring three people, according to the interior ministry.

The school's headmaster was among those injured.

Five other people are in shock following the incident at the Alexis de Tocqueville school, according to interior ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet.

France: Police rush to school after student shooter injures several

Witnesses recalled the moment the teen began shooting to French broadcaster BFM TV.

"It was total panic," a student by the name of Achraf said. "The gunshots were at four to five meters from where we were. We thought the gunman was coming towards us. We heard him shouting."

"I just know the gunman by sight. He was gentle and low-key key, not a nasty guy," he continued.

The teen reportedly carried out the attack after watching mass shooting videos.

"The first investigations suggest he had consulted American-style mass killings' videos," Brandet said, as quoted by Reuters.

A police source told the news outlet that the teen "does not seem to be known by police."

French newspaper Libération reported that a review of the shooter's Facebook profile found that the teen had published images of the two shooters of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre in July. 

The teen's Twitter account consisted of just four tweets, one of which was a video of last year's deadly truck attack in Nice.

Libération reported that the teen is the son of a local politician. 

A police official told AP that there does not appear to be any other suspects, but that authorities are working to "remove all doubt." Previous reports suggested there could have been a second suspect.

Authorities have confirmed the incident is not terrorism related. 

Following the first reports on the shooting, local emergency services urged residents via Twitter to stay indoors, while the French government launched a terrorist attack warning over the Grasse incident through a telephone application.

The attack comes despite France having some of the strictest gun laws in the world. Citizens are banned from owning automatic weapons, while many other guns require government authorization and a medical exam, along with a permit from a hunting or sport shooting federation.

Cuba Explores in France Technologies for Better Use of Water

A delegation from the National Institute of Hydraulic Resource of Cuba has complied in France with a broad agenda aimed at exploring technologies that allow a better distribution and use of water, Abel Salas, the entity's first vice president, said.

Salas told Prensa Latina that the program included several activities such as visits to factories, companies and construction projects, in order to learn about these technologies never used in the Caribbean nation, and they could be very useful for the efficient management of this resource.

According to the Cuban expert, 'everything has to do with using technologies that allow us to make a more efficient use of water, shorten the deadlines for carrying out the works, get the resource quickly from where we have it to places where it is in short supply, and also improve the overall treatment of waters.'

His mission, which also included tunnel designer, Pedro Ricardo, and work supervisor, Ramon Quinta, was also to visit places where technologies for the drilling of tunnels are in use and they do not involve a destruction of the urbanization in the Earth's land surface.

The Cuban delegation also visited companies specializing in seawater desalination plants through the use of renewable energy, which would be very useful for a country like Cuba, which is surrounded by water.

Other activities included visits to pipe factories, a laboratory that monitors the quality of concrete production and a waste treatment plant considered the largest one in Europe, where all processes for the handling of solids, sludge and gases were observed.

The agenda also included several meetings with French companies that could help Cuba in the application of these technologies.

According to Salas, the Cuban specialists detailed in those meetings the characteristics of the new law for foreign investment in the Caribbean nation and the possibilities foreign companies have to operate in his territory.

Paris Condemns Israeli Decision to Legalize Housing in West Bank

Paris, Feb 7 (Prensa Latina) French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault condemned today the adoption of a law in the Israeli Parliament aimed at endorsing thousands of houses built on Palestinian land in the West Bank.

In a statement, the minister questioned that the legislation contributes to perpetuating 'the existence of dozens of colonies and settlements by giving them a legal basis for their future development.'

That fact, he added, could aggravate tensions in the region, so 'I call on Israel to respect its international obligations and to reconsider this law.'

Ayrault recalled the resolution adopted at the United Nations on December 23, 2016 declaring colonization an illegal act under international law.

He also pointed out that the law passed by Israel undermines the two-state solution, endorsed by much of the international community as the only way to resolve the conflict peacefully.
