Marine Le Pen: I Do Not Run to Praise Brussels, But Rather To Bury It…

France’s Marine Le Pen spoke to her supporters and detractors alike when she announced recently if she succeeds in the French election her first foreign visit would be to Brussels to dismantle France’s relationship with the European Union.

trump-farage-le-pen

The 48-year-old candidate said: “I would go to Brussels to immediately launch negotiations allowing me to give back to the French people their sovereignty.”

(Via Express UK) […] The right-wing leader attacked the faltering euro currency as one of the root problems of the EU and described her main economic proposals as “economic patriotism, intelligent protectionism and a return to monetary independence”. She added: “The euro is a major obstacle to the development of our economy.”

[…] The rise of Le Pen is firmly in line with the surge of populism around the globe, as the National Front leader also heralded Trump’s success at coaxing Ford to relocating a factory in the US as opposed to Mexico.

Le Pen said she would adopt “intelligent protectionism” as a policy if elected president.

She said: “If we decide to recreate an industry in a particular domain, we will explain to the relevant companies that customs duties will increase progressively over a period of five years. (read more)

  2. Ms. Le Pen’s promised policies sound very similar to PE Trump’s. It will be interesting to see what happens in this year’s election in France. After the lying British enemedia proclaimed the end of the world if Brexit was successful, who is going to believe the lying French enemedia when they try the same thing? As I said … interesting.

          That he did, Majorstar.

          Some killjoy (me) might argue he was not French but Italian.

          His family name was Buonoparte, his father’s name was Carlo, and his mother’s name was Letizia. They looked Italian and had roots in Italy.

          Corsica became French territory in part because of Carlo and Letizia and other followers of Corsican patriot Paoli.

          Italy was not one country in the 1700s. Liguria (a small realm centered on Columbus’ home town of Genoa) owned Corsica, but the Paoli liberty movement caused them so much trouble they sold Corsica to the French in the 1760s.

          Napoleon was a unique character … about the only officer in the French Revolutionary army with enough courage to refuse to kill the Catholic monarchist rebels in Brittanny and Vendee. He said, “It inconveniences me to shed French blood when France has plenty of foreign enemies.” Robespierre and the other murderers sent General Westermann to murder these people instead. When they were overthrown, they and Westermann met the guillotine.

          My point about Joan was from the end of the life of Crusader King Louis IX aka Saint Louis, who gave justice to all while holding court under an oak at Vincennes so the peasants would not feel intimidated, to Joan, the French had a losing streak longer than the Cubs did. She gave them what they needed to stand as men, as she was sent from God. The English were bold, but they had no right dictating to the French.

          Below us is a note on France’s losses in WWI. That war truly was the suicide of Europe, as the leaders replaced Catholic patriotism and Protestant patriotism with the pagan worship of the state. A generation or more of Europe’s best men died or were crippled for life, and weaker and more cowardly men took their place. Hence the slide of that great continent into the wimpfest it is today.

          Thanks, all the Treepers and Sundance, for your wisdom and company!

Now that Russia is no longer Communist, and the Turks remain a-holes, Russia should get Constantinople and all present Turk land in Europe to safekeep for the Orthodox peoples of Europe.

            Interesting factoids. Of course Napoleon was Corsican, but he was Emperor of the French. And his soldiers were French. The Corican angle was a common narrative by the English to demean him in some fashion. France to this day recognizes him as one of their own and French all the way.

          We did NOT elect her! The Kanzler/in is a SELECTED (negotiated) position, not an ELECTED one, either direct or indirect (cf. electoral college).

          The coalition which gets cobbled together after national elections meets to choose a Kanzler/in, who may or may not be from the party with the most votes. There is a lot of politiking occurring in this process. Were one party to have effectively an absolute majority (which has never happened), the Kanzler/in would still be selected subject to this process.

          A lot of the evils attributed to Merkel actually begin with the (mis)administration of Gerhard Schröder, a putrid combination of the SPD (red) and the Greens. Have a look at Berlin’s current dysfunctional state “government” to see where red/green (or, in their case, red/red/green – SPD, Die Linke, and the greens) get you. Total chaos.

          And, as was said above, the German people are fed up. Indeed, royally pi$$ed. A cursory view of the comments sections of the major online dailies shows that, in spades. Spiegel.com, Stern.com, Focus.com, Welt.com (going from left to used-to-be-right) all have the vast majority of commenters skeptical if not downright fuming about Merkel’s MANY failed policies, not just the refauxgees (the Energiewende, for example).

          The General Election is in September 2014, and the agitprop/fake news/Lügenpress /presstitutes are already at it. Here’s hoping that the AfD find a fresh face and success at the polls, and that people finally “throw da bums out”. Judging from the comments on the dailies, and people I know and work with here in Germany, it could well happen.

    The ONLY way Marine win the elections is by gathering 50% upfront. What I mean by that is that the French system is a two-stepper. First round: anybody who qualifies for running can be on the ballot. If nobody gathers more than 50% of the votes there is a second round organized two weeks later. Second round: Only the two candidates who gathered the most votes during the first round can be on the ballot.

    Right now the French electorate is divided roughly in three. One third Left, One third Center, One left Right. The center and the left would be the equivalent of the Republicans and the Dems. The right (Front National) would be the Alt-right. The Center and the Left are the French Uniparty. During the last elections few months ago for the “Regionales” (think Governorship equivalent), they unified both during the first round presenting only one candidate to reach over the 50% mark and block the Front National, or they endorsed each other candidates when the Front National had advanced to the second round to accumulate more votes. And they succeeded. Right now about 30 to 35% of the French electorate has NO REPRESENTATION AT ALL.

    If Trump had not run as a Republican, he would not have been elected, The NeverTrumper would have allied with Clinton openly and drag the Party in opposing Trump. Trump would not have been able to gather enough votes from the Republicans to win without the Republican label.

    That is exactly the position in which Marine is. She is gathering steam and may be she is now in the 40% bracket but she still is facing open opposition from two parties registering a total of about 60ish% of the voters. I am sorry to say that it does not look good. BUT there is few months left to go and a lot can happen including some horrific attack which would chock the French into reality. Not wished on the innocents but entirely possible if not probable.

      She is not going to get 50% outright. She just isn’t. Parliamentary systems almost never do that.

      Her only hope is that 2nd place goes to the Socialists, rather than to the Republicans. If she is in a 2-way race with the nominally-“right” party, the Left will all vote for that person and she will lose … but if she is in a 2-way race with Yet Another Term of Socialists, she has a chance to lure enough nominally-“right” people and rural-“left” people to beat out a French-Socialist-in-name-but-Euro-Globalist-in-reality.

What you see as a positive (standing on one’s own thru the fruits of one’s labor) is a negative in France. Somebody who elevate himself from dependence to independence HAS to have done it on the back of a less fortunate. Remember: YOU DID NOT BUILT THAT.
