Yellow Vest Riots in France Continue – President Emmanuel Macron Under Siege…

The protests, turned riots, are named ‘Yellow Vest’ after the high-vis jackets that are required in all French automobiles.  The protestors wear the vests amid their fury over rising fuel prices;  However, the protests have now evolved into a direct confrontation to the presidency of Emmanuel Macron.

According to media reports over 5,000 police were deployed as angry protestors began breaking stuff, smashing store windows and battling with government riot squads.

Despite the show of force by police the crowd overwhelmed their positions and set up barricades to block any effort by the French government to break up their protests.  Check points along the Champs Eleysees and Arc de Triomphe were taken over by the scale of the crowd.   However, it’s not just Paris – disruptive protests are happening throughout France.

    Lot of complex variables in everything these days but this one is fairly simple Globalist need chattel class to have more purchasing power to keep low incomes happy as well as become the market for globalist’s additional goods and services. Globalist do not want to use their $ to enrich low incomes, so they are funding them by redistributing Middle Class wealth to chattel slaves. This creates more chattel class and less Middle Class tax revenue to entitle the working poor. And so the vicious cycle begins.
    One final note. Globalist are primarily political class and uber wealthy. Uber wealthy offers innate promise of consistent comfortable lifestyle for politicos. Squeeze is becoming so great on growing chattel slaves and Middle Class that Pols are endorsing socialism as their solution. Model going forward is socialized Middle and Lower Classes with political class becoming the new Middle Class. Ubers all looking for citizenship in New Zealand or to colonize Mars.

      What the Globalists are doing is colonizing every country on the planet. They are taking over the governments, taking from the wealthy who do not agree with them and keeping that for themselves. They are also taking from the middle class to purchase the lower classes as if they were slaves.

      Having spent many years traveling through Europe when the “EU” were individual countries with borders and guard stations I could never comprehend how each of these Countries could ever come together as one. Every Country took pride in their individual National identities – and to this day I believe most of the working men and women in any situation love “their country, their homeland, their citizenship” first and foremost”.

      What Macron did in his “we are the world’ proclamation is The Biggest Identity Theft a leader could do to his Country.

      Thank God for our President Donald J. Trump.

          Yucki,
          I agree with the author of the article. In one of videos above you see a couple of guys wearing masks and one turns around to speak to one who is not masked. I couldn’t help but wonder if the non-masked person was questioning their behavior and/or why they were marching with the original yellow jackets.

          To me, it just didn’t seem right that the yellow jackets (yj) were being violent and destroying other people’s property. I couldn’t help but wonder if they had been infiltrated by their enemies to make them look bad not only in France, but worldwide.

          I watched the video where the police took off their helmets to the yj. They would not have done this if there had been people in the crowd with their faces covered.

          Originally, I had problems empathizing when I saw destruction of private and public property. Those cars belong to someone, and I’m sure they are just as upset with the gas prices and Macron’s leadership. Plus, seeing the bicycles thrown in he fired didn’t make me too happy either. What if that is their only transportation to get to work?

          It took me a good day to realize and after doing some reading that this is not what the yj are responsible for. However, I am surprised they haven’t attempted to distance themselves from it. I could be wrong on this as well because I’m sure the msm would not find it beneficial to their stories by pointing this out when it is actually happening. All antifa or whoever they are have to do is don on one of the jackets along with their masks. The msm sees the jackets and the destruction and it makes it easy to blame the innocents who are protesting. Hey, they fooled me for a day and I don’t consider myself to be stupid. I’m not the brightest bulb, but I’m not the dimmest either.

          I just hope the French citizens and people around the world will learn the truth as well. It will be harder since they’ve been dummied down by the msm for so long, but o have my fingers crossed.

    France’s Meltdown, Macron’s Disdain
    https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/13364/france-meltdown-macron-disdain


    ◾”The French say, ‘Mr. President, we cannot make ends meet,’ and the President replies, ‘we shall create a High Council [for the climate]’. Can you imagine the disconnect?” — Laurence Saillet, spokesman for the center-right party, The Republicans, November 27, 2018

    ◾The “yellow jackets” [protestors] now have the support of 77% of the French population. They are demanding Macron’s resignation and an immediate change of government.

    ◾The movement is now a revolt of millions of people who feel asphyxiated by “confiscatory” taxation, and who do not want to “pay indefinitely” for a government that seems “unable to limit spending”. — Jean-Yves Camus, political scientist.

    Unemployment in France is not only at an alarmingly high level (9.1%); it has been been alarmingly high for years. The number of people in poverty is also high (8.8 million people, 14.2% of the population). Economic growth is effectively non-existent (0.4% in the third quarter of 2018, up from 0.2% the previous three months). The median income (20,520 euros, or $23,000, a year,) is unsustainably low. It indicates that half the French live on less than 1710 euros ($1946) a month. Five million people are surviving on less than 855 euros ($ 973) a month.

    One of the few issues Macron did seem eager to work on was Islam. He stressed several times his determination to establish an “Islam of France”. What he failed to take into account were the concerns of the rest of the population about the rapid Islamization the country.

      “Macron, along with Merkel, May, and the rest of the politicians who want to make the EU the government of a single European state, are dedicated international socialists.

      “They intend to destroy the national loyalties and cultures of their own countries, importing millions of Muslim barbarians to help it along with whatever chaos, crime, disruption, etc. they can create, and have no care for their people, economies, or anything else — their only concern is in creating a unitary socialist Europe, at any cost.”

        I think it all has to do with New World Order. Globalists never met a crisis they didn’t exploit to their advantage. How do you suppose they plan to topple countries? They already have “migration” and exfiltration of wealth. My guess is they will to instigate revolt.

        They tried to instigate the same thing here in the USA, using Antifa to agitate in otherwise peaceful rallies and demonstrations. It didn’t work because most Americans stayed home. You have a few Proud Boys or what have you, but most of us are clear-headed and calm. We don’t engage.

        You can bet the moment Americans take to the streets, globalists will “mix in” to turn it into a NWO coup. Why do you think the sable rattlers like Hellary and Obola are calling for violence in the streets? Right now Antifa can’t get anybody to fight back so they look rather silly out there all by themselves.

        The joke’s on them because Americans have their Constitution to ensure a “peaceful” transfer of power. That is the only thing that sets us apart and that’s why it (and we the people) are the bane of these globalists.

Unconfirmed rumour has it that a few years after being invited to one of the annual Bilderberg-Meetings, Macron, then an unknown, was President of France.

        “What is well known among the French Patriots (especially those who are relentlessly targeted by the totally politicised French Judiciary such as Riposte Laique, Résistance Républicaine, Les Identitaires to mention but a few among the increasing number of resistants) is the fact that Macron also owes big time to those who organised the Muslim vote for him.”

    There is just something to me which does not resonate about the “Yellow Jackets” – I may be alone in this – I think this is a massive horrific charade which will be like the “Reichstag Fire” on steroids –

    there are people across France justifiably angry at the problems brought with the “migrants” and now increased fuel prices purportedly in conjunction with the Climate Change policies . . .

    but I worry that a juggernaut of anarchy and violence under the guise of the “Yellow Jackets” is being orchestrated, to justify a broad clampdown on the legitimate protests . . .

    when I see people attempting to destroy street lights, using a crowbar to lift up the cobblestones and literally tearing up everything around them to create an obstacle course for the police and police vehicles, it seems to me that this is a different element at work . . . how can these be true French people doing this to beautiful Paris? Are they loaded up with some kind of amphetamine concoction such as was being used by ISIS to fuel their warriors?

    To me, their willingness to destroy Paris, so wantonly, indicates to me that these doing the destruction are from elsewhere.

    I think of that story from the Bible where a woman rolled over her baby in her sleep, accidentally killing her child who was sleeping next to her. When she realizes what she has done, she claims the child of another woman as her own and of course, the mother of that child refuses to give up the child and they wind up before King Solomon to have him decide the case. King Solomon announced his decision, that he will have the child cut in two, and give one half to each mother. The real mother quickly protested this solution, pleading, no, no, do not hurt the child, the other woman can have the child whereas the other woman was all right with the idea of cutting the baby in half. Kind of ridiculous that he would actually do that but it would seem that King Solomon did a massive head fake in order to extract the truth of the situation. The real mother was then given her child, alive and well and all in one piece.

    I brought up this story because it occurred to me that the people destroying Paris so wantonly in these riots could not possibly be true citizens of France, they could not hurt their beautiful city with such viciousness and threaten the President as well as all of the people of Paris whose shops were destroyed, who will need to pick up the pieces.

    A dear friend of mine told me many years ago about how his family had to flee Beirut. He said that Beirut had been a beautiful city, sophisticated and cosmopolitan . . . he said that it was known as “the Paris of the Middle East”.

    Now it looks like someone is trying to make Paris “the Beirut of the West” . . . I do not think it is a Frenchman.

      You may be correct that it’s a “different element”

      Perhaps the anarchists and antifers have come out to play

      Simply adopt the guise of the initial protest –

      (the yellow vests, which everyone is required to carry in their car for safety, like when dealing with your flat tire, I presume)

As if the same government that condoned and practiced vote theft would pass laws to stop their thefts.

    Amazing. It’s not the French who are frogs in the warm water. It’s Americans.

    Viva la France!

      Agree with that Boots. Interesting that you mention taxes being the catalyst for our forefathers . Our country is so big that a coordinated rebellion would be hard but I bet if every person stopped paying taxes that would get their attention.
      No taxation without representation…I surely don’t feel represented with the open and ongoing corruption. The opposite is true. We’re paying taxes for them to continue the Mueller witch hunt, voter fraud,unchecked illegal immigration, 2 tiered justice system…and on and on.

        BARRICADES! We have not constructed Barricades (YET) as the French are in favor of doing as of today and the days of “Les Miserables.” History does have a tendency to repeat.

        Agree Molly P. Where I live there is a totally socialist city council, a county council mostly socialist, both councils ensuring that nothing happens locally that doesn’t continually demand more and more taxes. Thank goodness for President Trump’s pro people national policies. Life in Europe is becoming miserable, the radical Islamists invasion being the latest insult to injury.

    Something their police don’t seem to muster so much when it comes to those newly arrived from North Africa, the Middle East, etc.

    This is coming to the USA too if the democrats ever regain significant power as the racist commie party.

  18. For those with some knowledge of history, the anti-parallels with the French Revolution of 1787, which kicked off global socialism in the West in answer to the American Revolution, are interesting. Especially if this goes all the way to toppling the socialist government led by Macron.

    This is real, real simple.

    Definition of a Republic: Form of government in which a state is ruled by representatives of the CITIZEN body. Modern republics are founded on the idea that sovereignty rests with the people.

    Globalism is, by its nature, anti-Republic. Whether it be the EU, the Democrats in America, or the globalist RINOs in America, forcing their will on a government of the people will not work. That is a dictatorship.

    Even simpler: We in charge, You not.

    There is no question that these riots were caused by rising fuel prices as a result of the Paris Climate Agreement which is a progressive far-left policy. But these protesters are going after Macron because they view him as part of an elite who are supposedly motivated by corporate greed/corruption. So the protesters are not hostile to the far-left. They are hostile to capitalism and corporations.

    Thank you to everyone here who has helped create the false narrative that the major problems in the West are a product of the political right and not the insane ideological beliefs, attitudes and behavior which is pouring forth from the far-left like a Marxist/neo-Marxist outflow sewage pipe on full flow. You have successfully created a mob uprising against our own side.

    Communist infiltrators couldn’t have done a better job. Wait a minute…

    • Way to rush to judgment on zero facts. The facts are that for now, the middle class is in revolt and the far left antifa has joined them to provocateur violence and destruction on behalf of the globalist establishment. That is what antifa does, they’re the establishment’s shock troops.

      Who will ultimately come out on top is unknown, but those are the sides. There are not three sides unless you count the muzzies. And nobody here is saying all the problems are coming from the right.

      Thought we came to the realization some time ago that corporate interests have friends in both the left AND right camps. They bribe both sides so that no matter which way the wind blows they always have friends in high places.

  26. It is amazing how the people will revolt and fight like hell when it comes to their money for taxes – but as long as everything is cheap and free, they have no problem letting invaders come into their country and take over, culturally! They should have done this kind of thing 3 years ago! Or even earlier, because they could see the potential invasion coming way back – look at what Sarcozy was saying!
