    France is experiencing its worst rioting in 50 years as middle-class Parisians are revolting against prohibitively high fuel taxes President Macron enacted to push climate change policies.
    The leftist media is hardly covering this grass-roots uprising against the failed globalist policies.
    Stay tuned. This is just getting started.

    Macron On Edge As Up To 120,000 Angry "Yellow Vests" Prepare To Storm The Bastille

    French President Emmanuel Macron may institute emergency tax cuts in an attempt to stem violent protests which have gripped France for three weeks, according to Bloomberg.
    The government is increasingly worried that the economy, alongside its own political fortunes, is threatened by demonstrations against fuel taxes that have spiraled into a push-back against Macron’s policies.
    Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said the impact of the riots was “severe,” and left a meeting of finance ministers in Brussels to return to Paris for crisis talks with colleagues. -Bloomberg



    In order to make the tax cuts work, the French government will need to find ways to cut spending that doesn't hobble growth, as well as tax measures that will stimulate the economy.
    For Macron, the stakes are high as he doesn’t want to damage the credibility he needs to push for reforms in Europe. The European Commission has already said his existing budget is at risk of non-compliance with EU rules.
    According to Marc Touati, economist and president of business consultancy ACDEFI, Macron may be forced to take a more radical approach, even if that means the deficit slipping a bit. -Bloomberg
    The protests have crippled revenues across the country, with some large supermarkets seeing drops as much as 25 percent. Hotel bookings have suffered a similar fate.



    Toll-road operators Vinci SA and Eiffage SA meanwhile have seen their share prices decline as they have opened toll booths to let cars pass freely.
    Whatever Macron has planned, he better act fast - as there are currently 15,000 angry French Yellow Vests signed up for next Saturday's protests in Paris; three times as many as last weekend, while 104,000 are a "maybe."




    ***
    Leaders of the so-called "Yellow Vest" movement have rejected demands to negotiate with the French government after President Emmanuel Macron ordered his prime minister to hold discussions, according to AFP. Macron and top officials are now in full damage control mode amid the most violent protests France has seen since 1968.



    Approximately 136,000 demonstrators donning yellow reflective vests were recorded across France on Saturday - of which approximately 5,500 protested in the French capital according to the interior ministry. The previous weekend saw 166,000 demonstrators, and 282,000 the week before that.

    This is France right now. You’ve heard media rip Trump for having a mid 40’s approval rating yet they’ve celebrated Macron like he’s a beloved world leader when he has a 27% approval and his country is rioting. The media may love him but the people don’t.

    According to the interior ministry, 412 people were arrested in during Saturday's violent clashes in the French capital, while 263 people were injured. The worst hit areas were the wealthy west and central Paris, where stores were smashed and looted, dozens of cars were burnt, and police forces were overwhelmed by Yellow Vest protesters.






    Amid the chaos, an 80-year-old woman was killed in Marseille when a police tear-gas canister was launched into her apartment window while she was trying to close the shutters. She was taken to a nearby hospital but died during an operation after suffering shock, according to a local media report. She has become the third casualty in the demonstrations which began three weeks ago.



    On Monday, Macron held an urgent security meeting - after which ministers said that while "no options have been ruled out," they had not discussed a state of emergency as had been previously reported.



    Conservative leader Marine Le Pen who attended the meeting warned that Macron could become the first French president to order troops to open fire on his own people in 50 years, and that he should abandon his plan to raise taxes on fuel while lowering gas and electricity prices.
    The demonstrations, meanwhile, have had a noted effect on business in the region.
    Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire met with business representatives to assess the damage caused to businesses over the weekend.
    "The impact is severe and ongoing," Mr Le Maire told the AFP news agency.
    Some retailers had seen sales drop by around 20-40% during the demonstrations, while some restaurants had lost 20-50% of their takings, he added. -BBC
    The protests have continued into Monday according to the BBC, which reports that about 50 Yellow Vest protesters blocked access to a major fuel depot in the port city of Fos-sur-Mer, which is close to Marseille - while gas stations across France have run out of fuel after restrictions on purchases were instated.
    As if things weren't bad enough for Macron, on Monday French private ambulance drivers staged further demonstrations against several healthcare and social security reforms which they say could affect their jobs.


    Dozens of trucks formed a blockade from Paris's Place de la Concorde to the French National Assembly.
    One protester told the Reuters news agency: "[The reforms] will bludgeon us financially and destroy our companies. We're going to have to fire people, that's for sure."
    It is unclear if the ambulance drivers are part of the Yellow Vest movement - however recent polls have shown that most of France supports their cause.
    Similiar protests have broken out around Europe, as Yellow Vest demonstrations have spread to Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands.

    French Prime Minister to meet yellow vest protesters after worst clashes since the uprising of May 1968

    By Laura Cat 3 December 2018

    French Prime Minister Édouard Philippe is meeting with French political leaders and ‘yellow vests’ this week instead of his scheduled appearance at the COP24 climate change summit in Katowice, Poland.
    The Prime Minister plans to announce new “measures” this week in an effort to defuse the protests, the worst of which have not been seen in France for fifty years. As such, he has scheduled a meeting with spokespersons from the Yellow Vest movement for Tuesday afternoon.
    The protests have spread throughout the country and spilled over into other countries, protesting the out of touch, elitists in government for country specific reasons. Teenagers even demonstrated in front of blockaded schools, setting rubbish bins alight and calling for Macron to resign.

    President Macron, left the G20 summit in Argentina to hold emergency meetings with the prime minister, interior minister and top security service officials at the presidential palace in Paris on Sunday. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s scheduled visit to the National Assembly has been cancelled, as well.
    The Yellow Vests believe their message is good and will remain on course. On Sunday, Marine Le Pen and Jean-Luc Melenchon called for new parliamentary elections.
    Opinion polls show that two in three French people support the protests, regardless of the violence a handful have commit.

    Globalist Macron spends his time virtue signaling to the world and has totally disconnected from ordinary French citizens. This is what happens when the people feel ignored by the politicians.

    Link to Twitter video & more videos of police in France changing into civilian clothing to start violence to blame the peaceful protesters. False Flag Tactic.
    The World is Watching.

    And this is what’s actually happening in France. Police officers are changing out of their uniforms into civilian clothing and starting violent protests pretending to be a normal civilian. This is really bad stuff happening. A few more videos in the next few slides.

    France Reaps Decades of Socialism and Open Borders

    Brigitte Gabriel |Posted: Dec 14, 2018 2:28 PM

    As world leaders recently gathered in France to celebrate the centurion anniversary of the ending to World War I, French President Emmanuel Macron took it upon himself to attack President Trump, warning about the dangers of so-called “nationalism.”

    The arrogance of a Western world leader using such a unifying event to attack the elected leader of one of his nation’s closest allies aside, Macron would’ve done well to keep his own house in order before lending advice.

    Just weeks later, Paris was ablaze with violent mobs attacking police and vandalizing some of France’s most precious historical sites. The world-famous Arc de Triomphe was laced with graffiti by a generation poisoned and brainwashed with socialist ideology, never satisfied with what their government could give them.

    France spent decades pushing the same anti-nationalist ideology on its citizens, glorifying the European Union and heavily taxing the wealthy to give to the poor. Combine this with France’s decades of open borders, reluctance to celebrate their own rich culture, Western values and contributions to the world, and you get an angry, self-loathing and even violent citizenry. Suddenly there’s no more wealth to tax, no more jobs to hand out and no more national identity.

    Socialism has never worked in any part of the world in the entire history of civilization. Its consistent destruction of wealth, freedom and democracy has proven to be a recipe for national suicide. Combined with the open border policies that France embraced, you won’t just get poverty and civil unrest, but terrorism as well.

    When I was a little girl, Beirut was dubbed “Paris of the Middle East.” Today, Paris is the Middle East of Europe and the “city of love,” has turned into the “city of chaos.” Decades of un-fettered immigration from the Middle East and North Africa has birthed sharia-ridden “no-go zones” and horrific terrorist attacks from the Charlie Hebdo massacre to the Paris bombings of 2015.

    This type of radical transformation France has undergone is precisely what President Trump has been so desperately fighting against since his inauguration, with limited to no help from his own party.

    As we march closer and closer toward a Democrat-controlled House of Representatives, time is running out on our nation’s ability to reverse course and protect itself from becoming like France—a nation with no unity, no identity and no safety.

    We need not look all the way across the Atlantic to see what the future holds for our nation if it refuses to seal its southern border, grants amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants and continues to elect anti-American socialists to political positions of power. Just take a look at what unvetted immigration and socialism has done to the liberal haven of California over the past few decades.

    Sanctuary cities such as San Francisco that provide safe haven for illegals such as Kate Steinle’s killer have become places of squalor, ridden with homelessness and filth. In fact, San Francisco's streets are so filthy that an infectious disease expert recently placed it amongst some of the dirtiest cities in the entire world!

    Recently, an investigative unit surveyed 153 blocks of San Francisco, in which it found countless mounds of trash and food lining the streets, at least 100 discarded needles, and wait for it, more than 300 piles of human feces.

    This is San Francisco we’re talking about, not Mumbai.

    By the way, it’s worth pointing out that one of San Francisco’s congressional representatives happens to be none other than soon-to-be Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who is vehemently opposed to a wall. Good to know Ms. Pelosi has her priorities in order.

    Taxes are through the roof in the “Golden State,” prompting many businesses to move to more free-market friendly locations such as Texas or Florida. As wealth continues to leave the state, the taxes will inevitably climb even higher, as lawmakers attempt to keep their constituents as well as illegals happy. Sooner or later, there won’t be enough wealth to tax, and the state will be bankrupt. The result of this will likely be violence, vandalism and chaos on a scale even larger than what we’re witnessing in Paris.

    The solution to all of this? America first.

    Wait, you mean, “nationalism?”

    Let the leftist fools like Macron, who currently enjoys an approval rating of less than 20 percent in his own nation, call it whatever they want. It’s time to do what’s best for America and its people.

    It’s time to build a wall to protect not only our citizens but our identity, and it’s time to call socialism what it is—an evil and destructive, anti-American ideology that has led to nothing but poverty and disaster wherever it raises its poisonous head.

    America is and should always remain a capitalist nation that defends its borders and celebrates its national identity and Judeo-Christian values. As proven by France’s continued fall from grace, failure to do so will result in cultural, economic and political destruction.
