French Presidential Candidate Francois Fillon Anticipated To Make Noon (Local Time) Announcement….

French Presidential candidate, Francois Fillon, has called for a 12:00pm (local time – 6:00am U.S. Eastern Time zone) press conference.  This comes a day after he cancelled a trip to the annual Paris Agricultural Fair.   My hunch is Fillon may be ending his bid for the French presidency.

update-1  UPDATE 8:00am EST  Fillon is staying in –  French presidential candidate Francois Fillon will remain in the race, saying he won’t quit, even as judges plan to charge him with misuse of public funds. Bloomberg’s Caroline Connan reports on “Bloomberg Surveillance.” (Source: Bloomberg)

macron-fillon-le-pen

[L-R: Emmanuel Macron (2nd place in polling), Francois Fillon (3rd place in current polling), and Marine Le Pen (current first round polling leader)]

Within French presidential politics the Paris Agricultural Fair is similar in political tradition to the Iowa State Fair during U.S .Presidential election years.  Marine Le Pen was there over the past weekend.

Fillon’s campaign has been backsliding ever since a toxic corruption scandal broke exposing he may have paid his wife a parliamentary salary without her actually doing any work.  Francois Fillon denies the accusations but an investigation is ongoing.

If Fillon drops out, this actually shows a larger concern within French political circles, known for their internal parliamentary style deal-making, that Marin Le Pen is growing too large in her base of support and her opposition needs to unite to eliminate the threat that her nationalistic campaign represents.

Fillon is currently polling in third place; prior to the scandal with his wife he was in second.   The preferred “establishment globalist” candidate is now the independent candidate Emmanuel Macron who has moved into second place – with Marine Le Pen still polling as the leader in the first round of elections.

In the past two weeks almost all of the primary political establishment elites have moved their support into the Macron column.  This has helped him to surge in the polls as a Jeb Bush type squish for the political establishment.  [Yes, there are remarkable parallels – albeit divergent ideologies]

Emmanuel Macron is self-identified as an “independent” in a smart tactical effort to help him avoid being defined by his opposition.  However, those who have been following French politics have seen that both Francois Fillon and Emmanuel Macron are various shades of the same center-right party. [Essentially, Sarkozy-lite]

Due to the rise of nationalism -a direct outcome from terrorist and immigration issues- the far left has no chance in this election.   Hollande is not even trying to win re-election. Socialist Benoit Hamon and hard-left Jean-Luc Melenchon, are both stuck polling 13.5 percent and 11.5 percent respectively (LINK), not near enough to qualify for a round two runoff between the top two candidates.

Therefore the real threat to the EU is only Marine Le Pen who has announced her intention to provide a Frexit referendum if she were to win the election.

Both Macron and Fillon are pro-EU and reflect no intention to withdraw from the European Union.  (Hamon and Melenchon are obviously pro-EU).

This latest move, if indeed Fillon drops out, would indicate a power maneuver of pressure within the larger French political structures to form a coalition against the continued rise of Marine Le Pen.   The thinking would be that most of Fillon’s supporters will go with Macron and therefore put him solidly in the lead.

In essence this would be like a reverse splitter strategy.  Get above Le Pen’s polling ceiling and possibly end the election in round #1.  If a single candidate can gain over 50% there is no round #2 vote – the presidential election is over.

This looks like the political strategy of the power elites within France.  We’ll know with certainty if Francois Fillon does indeed drop out today.

    Macron would, in my opinion, be even worse than Fillon and, of course, than Le Pen for the anti-globalist cause and the English-speaking people.

    He is a committed Europhile, a 39-years old Trudeau-esque naive poster boy who would get played by the German government, and he used a visit to London to mock the British and promised that he would try to damage and exploit the British economy.

    Just like in the case of Merkel and her outlandish challenger Schulz, things can go from bad to worse.

    However, I’m happy that Le Pen is now polling around 45% in polls for the second round. Even if the polls don’t underestimate her support, a small change, maybe a boost after winning the first round, will push her over the finish line – and the EU over the cliff.

    But currently it is indeed wise to focus on the first round and the threat of an establishment candidate winning more than 50%. I hope it will backfire like Colorado backfired for Cruz. But let’s see what Fillon has to say today.

    Interesting discussion. However. It is not possible to win in round one. Even de Gaulle didn’t do that.

    No idea how Fillon’s vote would move. I was discussing it yesterday with two Fillonist contacts. One might vote Macron, she isn’t that anti open borders. I and the other women would never vote Macron. Or in ten years it’s Huellebecq Submission time. That just leaves Le Pen, but I would never vote for a National Socialist either, Socialism is what got us into this mess. Total mess. No idea what will happen. This is the worst possible outcome. It’s looking like Macron will be the next president. He is openly touting for the Bobo and Islamic vote. Has said France has no culture.

            American patriots are “Anti-Globalist”: We would never surrender self-rule and sovereignty.

            Curiously you have cited ZERO positions of Le Pen’s, not to mention why you would agree/disagree with them, other than mentioning she favors FREXIT … which leaves us to infer that oppose it.

            Labeling her “Socialist” is useless, since self-claimed socialists can claim widely-divergent policies and positions.

            Since you’re ineligible to vote in France, it would be far more useful to learn what “improvements/positions” you’re FOR rather than who you’re AGAINST.

            That is big conundrum. It comes down to a form of soft disenfranchisement similar to what lead to America electing PDJT. For decades neither major party was offering border security and reindustrialization so those of us who felt that was a priority were forced to vote for the least bad between two candidates that didn’t really represent our wants. When PDJT came along he was the first one offering those things in a generation. A lot of soft socialists voted for the evil capitalist businessman and evangelicals voted for the twice-divorced “womanizer” that supports gay marriage because the other issues were just more important.

            If no one else is offering FREXIT, then the election becomes a proxy referendum on FREXIT. The question is whether her socialist policies will do more harm over her term than the good that may be done by abandoning the EU. There’s also the question of whether Le Pen even could make FREXIT happen, or at least whether enough people believe that she could.

            I think a lot of Americans are only looking at the dissolution of the EU because frankly, France is already pretty socialist and we don’t have to live with whatever increased socialism Le Pen may herald. As relatively unaffected non-French people, we kind of can’t help but look at the issue in an over-simplified manner. In the end, I think the long-game is what has to matter most. If you look at a multi-term time scale, If you vote for FREXIT this time, will you be able to get a capitalist President next time? Or if you vote against socialism this time, will you be able to get FREXIT next time? What are the people of France most willing to put off till later?

          You seem a little all other the place with your opinions. Including citing innacurate information. For example that noone has ever won on the first round. if you are not a citizen, what is your status in France? Clearly you cannot vote, and more than likely you cannot be politically active either.

          As a French citizen (although American now, it is impossible to lose one’s French citizenship unless you are stripped of it) I favor not only strong borders but also the return of all illegals to their own countries. LePen whom you call a socialist is the only hope France has of getting off the globalism merry-go-round. France is basically a socialist country anyway, and anyone running now will have to carry through with social programs for quite a while before real change can take place, or they will no make it.

          Real change would come, but sharia law will shock you even more than LePen will.

      It seems to me the fix is in for Macron (aka Hollande) to win the second round and, as usual, the media is complicit. Everybody knows Fillon has no chance of victory.
      .
      The wheels of justice are turning too fast. Normally a judiciary summons for the run-of-the-mill citizen can take many months, sometimes over one year, exception made for terrorism issues.

      FLASHBACK: One week ago, police raided Marine Le Pen’s office. Police provided no information on what the raid yielded.

      Hypothesis: Regardless of what happens to Fillon, the next on the list to be summoned is Marine Le Pen. This will occur at a very inconvenient timing, it will take up all air time, and will be enough to derail her campaign. Fillon’s votes will go to Macron, ensuring him the Presidency.

      Meanwhile, Macron has highly questionable financial issues (unexplained Millions of $) and all is being ignored.

          Expect a Marine Le Pen summons before a judge shortly after the 23rd where police will lay out alleged charges against her. And this is where Macron will win the Presidency on the second and last round, May 07.

    Thank you for the update, Sundance. I had two thoughts upon reading this…

    Historically, when times get tough the French are known for changing Govts like they change their shirts. They literally elected dozens of them between the World Wars.

    And every time I hear about the EU’s politics I thank God our Founders rejected the idea of our having a Parlimentary Govt, and chose a Republic instead.

    It’s not an accident that there are “gas stations” with five types of fuels to fill up their cars in Germany. It is a direct result of the crazy political coalitions there and across their Continent.

      The Tankstellen here in Germany typically have four nozzles, two for Diesel, and two for gasoline. Gas comes in Super, E10, and sometimes “V-Power” (or similar) which is designed to relieve the hapless driver of his or her money. Likewise, Diesel comes in regular and occasionally “V-Power”, which is 19 cents more per litre, but only marginally worthy of the name “V-Power”.

      Finally, there are sometimes pumps for LP gas, or truck diesel. But they’re separate from the others.

    Looking at the way the French Presedential Election is shaping up. I think it is looking bleak for Le Pen.

    The globalists have clearly decided to go all for Macron who is masquerading as a Centre Right politician when he is nothing of the kind.

    Fillon is being targeted by the establishment as he has thatcherite tendencies so he is seen as more of a threat than some people think.

    Le Pen is clearly their worst nightmare so they are trying to reduce any chance of success for her. In fact the EU has changed a rule recently which could result in Le Pen possibly facing prosecution for a trivial error.

    The establishment is panicked and unfortunately succeeding in protecting Macron. They are circling the wagons.

    We also have to bear in mind that Le Pen is no Trump. She is the closest they have, but Trump is in a league of his own.

    In all likelyhood Le Pen will win first round with Macron in 2nd place and Fillon 3rd.

    Final round run off Le Pen and Macron. The left and some on Centre right will back Macron so Le Pen will likely lose by 10 points or even more. I can’t see how she wins this thing due to the way the others will coalesce against her in the final round.

    Macron will be a disaster for France because he is young, no experience and will be simply a puppet of the globalist establishment.

    But that could then lead to a sea change in French politics, resulting in a Le Pen victory in a future election. That may be the silver lining.

      Excellent summary.

      *We also have to bear in mind that Le Pen is no Trump. She is the closest they have, but Trump is in a league of his own.*

      My thoughts exactly. There’s only one Trump – and he’s in the Super-League, all by himself.

      *Macron will be a disaster for France because he is young, no experience and will be simply a puppet of the globalist establishment.

      The conclusion you reached is inevitable and rational. France needs to suffer “an Obama” before it wakes up. People need to see the bottom of the abyss before the penny drops.

      Give it time. It will happen.

      The problem with them targeting Le Pen, may not be quite what you think.

      They are concerned in that if she is in the final round then if there was an attack or something that it might give her a boost which would get her close to the finish line.

      So in a way, what they are doing by targeting her now is kind of an insurance policy, try and damage her enough before the final round, so even in that eventuality she won’t overcome.

      The problem that people need to understand is that, France is not where America or Britain is on the security and refugee issues. What I mean by that is that the French people seem to be rather brainwashed or in a state of malaise that they can’t quite see the seriousness of the situation they are facing, even though you have had some horrific events and a truly abysmal leader in Hollande.

      But it just does not seem to register with them to the extent that you would think. This is why I strongly believe she will get creamed in the final round, by double digits, especially with the political forces on the left and some on the center right falling in behind Macron to stop her.

      At the moment I fear that Le Pen is a bridge too far for the French. I could be wrong, but I very much doubt it.

    For those who haven’t read Hoellebeque’s (sp) “Submission” (the book on the cover of Charlie Hedbo the day of the slaughter) — the story is set in France where a female (if I remember correctly) right winger is about to be elected president of France. To keep her from winning, the Lefties join with the Muslims to back the Muslim candidate who promises all the wonderful left things left wingers always promise, including freedom and liberty. The French (never known for their brilliance) buy the line and elect him — once elected, he begins the Sharia takeover of France. Non muslims lose their university jobs, women began weeded out of positions of equality. The hero (antihero really) is a youngish university professor who doesn’t much care who wins the election. He sort of wakes up when his Jewish girlfriend and her parents leave France, moving to Israel, but he’s so shallow he doesn’t really give a damn so long as he can find another girlfriend. I won’t tell you the end in case you want to read it, but it’s chilling.

    Le Pen gives Merkel and Hollande a bit of a
    “telling off” in front of the EU parliament! She sounds like maybe she’s been taking a bit of advice from Trump.

    The number of refugees was capped at 50,000 for the year in the EO that was negated by that stupid judge. We already have taken in quite a few, so I think only 15,000 more.

    We are still taking some in because of an agreement we made under Obama with the UN, I think.

    Welfare benefits for illegals will take a change in the law, I think. If not, I foresee another executive order soon.

    He has only been president 40 days and there is a LOT to do. You need to be a little bit patient.

      Is the EU taking any of the 30+ million refuge from central and south America ?
      Or is it only us that must take migrants from across the world ?

      Also, my understating is that more people in impoverished part of Africa die every year then in the past decade from the middle east.

      So shouldn’t Europe take and relocate 10s of million of dying African to save them?
      relocate entire tribes to Amsterdam, Madrid, Vienna, Rome, … ?

      This whole thing is SORDID, its FAKE.. its a SCAM

      The whole middle east muslim mass relocation program is solely to spread islam across the world.. and its working.

    It’s possible that Fillon, who’s a practicing Catholic, thinks that Le Pen winning would not be the catastrophe that the globalists say it would be, and that she’s in fact preferable to Macron and the Left. By staying in, he frustrates the globalists’ “reverse splitter” (lumper) strategy.

    Le Pen is apparently being charged with something by the EU after in 2015, she posted some ISIS horror photos in her twitter. They are trying to get rid of the competition by means other than a democratic election.

    Fillon is pulling a Hillary. Weak candidate dogged by scandal. Opens the door for a Le Pen win.

    Western civilization is in huge trouble. Educated women are choosing careers over children. Happening in every western country. The population replacement level is falling. Same in USA but it’s been masked by the lower socio-economic groups reproducing at a much higher rate and illegal immigration.
