France shocked at iPhone X costing exactly French minimum wage

After Apple unveiled its shiny new iPhone X to the world, French media noted with wonder and consternation that the hi-tech gadget cost almost exactly the same as a worker on France’s minimum wage earns for a month’s labour.
"Is the iPhone X worth a SMIC?" asked a headline in Le Parisien newspaper, using the French abbreviation for the monthly minimum wage that is legally fixed at €1,149 after tax.

The cheapest version of the iPhone X, unveiled on Tuesday at Apple’s new "spaceship" headquarters in California, will be sold in France from November 3 priced at €1,159.

The newspaper marvelled at the new product’s technology, but rather snootily noted that buying it for that price was like buying a Porsche for a short commute to work when a low-cost Dacia car would do the job just as well.

Tens of thousands take to the streets to protest Macron's labour reforms

The first day of major demonstrations against French President Emmanuel Macron's changes to France's enshrined labour code saw tens of thousands of protesters take to the streets on Tuesday.

In a day of nationwide strikes and rallies that was seen as an important test for Macron - who has staked his presidency on overhauling France's sluggish economy - France's biggest trade union, the hardline CGT, was keen to show it could mobilise its supporters in large numbers.

On Tuesday evening the union reported that some 60,000 protesters had turned out in Paris, while the police put the figure at a more modest 24,000.

The numbers are being closely observed as they are considered an important indicator of the strength of resistance to the reforms.

‘King of slackers’: Fury after Macron brands labor reforms opponents ‘lazy’ ahead of mass protests

North Korea official blasts France over nuclear criticism

France admits its defeat in Syria, says future with Bashar Al Assad possible

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said the demand for departure of the Syrian President Bashar Al Assad should not be a precondition for launching a political process in the country.

During Friday’s press conference with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov in Moscow, the French foreign minister recalled that Paris had already assured that in order to launch the political process in Syria, no preconditions, including Al Assad's departure, should be set, noting that the French side does think Al Assad should be targeted by any political process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Assad has defeated the US attempt to remove him.

Deal with it.

Emmanuel Macron's Africa refugee plan condemned as 'racist and inhumane'

European Parliament’s Rapporteur on the Commission’s Union Resettlement Framework, Left MEP Malin Björk, said the plan was “tainted by structural racism towards the African population”.

“Europe has no right to criminalise mobility or movement - especially not in third countries,” the Swedish MEP said.

“Irregular migration is not a crime - by calling it a crime is akin to calling these people criminals. The most worrying aspect of this plan is that it is coupled with stopping spontaneous arrivals at European territory completely. This breaches the international right to leave one's country and to seek asylum.

“Furthermore, using resettlement as the framework within which EU externalises its borders is to destroy over five decades of humanitarian work and international solidarity. In terms of increased loss of human lives and suffering, the consequences of this plan will be disastrous.”

France sees no alternative to Iran deal: Macron

“There is no alternative to the non-proliferation agenda. It enables a constructive and demanding relationship with Iran,” he told some 200 French ambassadors gathered in Paris.

A woman has died and another person is injured after an man deliberately drove a stolen van into two bus stops during morning rush hour in Marseille, southern France.

A man was injured in the first crash, which took place at around 8am, and a 42-year-old woman was killed in the second, about one hour later.

The suspect, a 35-year-old man, fled both scenes, and was later arrested in the city’s Old Port area.

The suspect had reportedly stolen the van before deliberately driving it into a packed bus shelter in the Croix-Rouge area of Marseille just after 8am.

The driver then sped off, as ambulances were called to deal with people who had been injured in the attack.

French President Macron’s Short-Lived Honeymoon

The former Rothschild banker, economy minister’s honeymoon began by defeating Marine Le Pen decisively on May 7.

Two weeks later, opinion polls showed 62% of respondents viewed him favorably.

His fall from grace was swift, an early August YouGov poll, showing his approval rating plunged to 36% - the lowest ever for a French president this early in his tenure.

He’s accused of ignoring his core supporters. WikiLeaks published thousands of embarrassing emails relating to his campaign and earlier.

Italian psychiatrist Dr. Adriano Segator called him a “dangerous psychopath,” saying “we have a case of full-blown narcissism.”

One person was killed and dozen injured after a driver struck a group of patrons outside a cafe in a region east of Paris Monday evening.

An twelve-year-old girl was killed in the BMW attack, and 12 were injured, four seriously, according to France's Interior Ministry. The attack took place at a pizzeria in Sept-Sorts, about an hour from Paris, French media outlets report.

Nezavisimaya Gazeta: French disappointed in Macron

French President Emmanuel Macron's ratings are declining, with his performance approved by just 36% of the population, Nezavisimaya Gazeta writes citing the results of a survey conducted by the Ifop research center. Macron’s popularity rating reached a new low, having fallen by almost 20 points compared to July when his performance was approved by 54% of Frenchmen. According to local media, even Francois Hollande, one of the most unpopular French leaders, did not encounter such public discontent during the first 100 days of his presidency. Many tend to link Macron’s growing unpopularity to his reforms, particularly, with the liberal economic agenda and plans to reduce the country’s budget deficit. Macron’s decision to implement the most painful reforms at the beginning of his five-year presidential term looks quite logical, Sergey Fyodorov, Leading Research Fellow at the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Institute for European Studies, told the paper.

Migrants & Refugees Have Tried To Breach UK Border 17,000 Times This Year – France

Migrants and refugees have made up to 17,000 attempts to jump aboard UK-bound lorries and trains since January, according to the French Interior Ministry.

US Sanctions — a Looney Tunes Bad Remake

By F. William Engdahl
5 Aug 2017

The ever-so-wise members of the Congress of the United States have just passed one of the most bizarre pieces of legislation in US history. Unilaterally, it makes illegal and severely punishable investments by European companies in international energy projects where Russia is involved. But it does far more. Unlike earlier US sanctions acts, the EU countries were not even consulted on the new act. It may well be that the bill, HR-3364: Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (sic) and its Senate counterpart will mark the irreversible decline of the United States as a global power and forge new ties between Russia, China, Iran and, yes, the major states of the EU including Germany .

What the Act says
That's All Folks!

Air France expands North Korea no-fly zone after missile miss

Air France-KLM (AIRF.PA) has expanded its no-fly zone over North Korea after one of its jets flew past the location where an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) splashed down 10 minutes later, an airline spokesman said on Thursday.

Air France's flight 293, a Boeing (BA.N) 777 carrying 323 people from Tokyo to Paris, missed North Korea's latest ICBM as it fell to earth on July 28 by about 100 km (60 miles), the spokesman said, citing flight data provided by Japan.

Air France-KLM flies direct to Tokyo and Osaka and the expansion of the no-fly zone could make the flights 10 minutes to 30 minutes longer, depending on the direction, the spokesman said.

North Korea said on Saturday its latest ICBM test proved its ability to strike America's mainland, drawing a sharp warning from U.S. President Donald Trump and a rebuke from China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's got to be a pain for business passengers with schedules to keep, but under the circumstances, I understand Air France/KLM's decision to do this completely.

‘DISGUSTING’ Fury as French embassy uses Passchendaele to say EU 'brought peace' to Europe

FRENCH diplomats have been accused of rewriting history and politicising a generation’s sacrifice after penning a pro-EU tweet to mark the 100th anniversary of the battle of Passchendaele.

...

On its official Twitter account, the embassy posted to its 13,000 followers: “Today we commemorate #Passchendaele100. An opportunity to cherish peace, unity and solidarity brought by the EU.”

But the message immediately sparked fury amongst social media users, who accused French diplomats of politicising a 100-year-old tragedy and of wilfully trying to rewrite history in favour of the EU project.

Is France Ready to Stand Up to Trump on Iran?

On July 26th, the French foreign ministry issued a declaration about the package of new sanctions targeting Russia and Iran making its way through Congress to President Trump’s desk in the Oval Office.

In the estimation of the French foreign ministry, “the extraterritorial scope of [the sanctions] appears to be unlawful under international law.” The statement outlined the need for the Europeans to “adapt our national mechanisms and update European mechanisms” to protect themselves from the U.S. legislation. The French foreign ministry called for coordination with European partners to address American overreach.

Macron Is Setting Himself up as the Go-between Putin and Trump

French President Emmanuel Macron has positioned himself as a possible go-between in facilitating a reduction of tensions between the U.S. and Russia, a move that makes sense for France but may anger Official Washington’s hawks who want to escalate the New Cold War. I interviewed Paris-based journalist and historian Diana Johnstone about Trump’s recent visit to Paris. Johnstone is the author of From Mad to Madness: Inside the Pentagon’s Nuclear War Planning Machine, recounting the experiences of her father, Paul Johnstone, as a senior analyst in the Pentagon’s Strategic Weapons Evaluation Group and a co-author of the Pentagon Papers. I spoke to her by telephone in France on July 19...

The French Government Tried To Build A Migrant Shelter In This Small Town – Residents Responded By Building A Wall Around It

When most people consider how many migrants have entered Europe in recent years, they probably assume that the whole continent is a beacon of tolerance and love for foreigners who are seeking a better way of life. But a more accurate picture of Europe would suggest that the only thing most Europeans are tolerant of, is their corrupt governments who aren’t willing to close the borders. That tolerance is quickly wearing thin however, as most Westerners reject the migrants, who are burdening the social fabric of their communities.

Which would explain a recent incident in the French town of Séméac, where the government recently bought a hotel in the hopes of turning it into a migrant shelter.

LEADERS OF LIBYA’S STRONGEST FACTIONS SIGN ACCORD IN PARIS

The French President Emmanual Macron has hosted the two most influential leaders in Libya in what is being called an attempt to re-unite the totally fractured failed state that has plagued Libyan politics since 2011 when the revolutionary leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown during a NATO invasion.

In reality, Macron is engaging in a big face-saving exercise on two fronts. Although the NATO war on Libya was largely authored and agitated for by Hillary Clinton, because of Barack Obama’s apparent reticence to associate himself with the kind of aggressive western war against a Muslim majority country that many at the time still associated with George W. Bush, French President Nicholas Sarkozy became the public cheerleader for the disastrous war, complete with a premature ‘Mission Accomplished’ moment in Tripoli along with then British Prime Minister David Cameron.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fingers crossed, that this can create some degree of stability in Libya, after the absolute fiasco of the Clinton-inspired NATO invasion, which saw to it the Ghaddafi got assassinated.

The third issue is cyber security which was understandably given considerable attention. The presidents agreed that this area is becoming ever more dangerous. There are numerous threats emerging in cyber space, including a terrorist threat, threats in other areas of organised crime, such threats to the normal functioning of societies as child pornography, pedophilia, the so-called suicide networks. Of course, President Trump also mentioned that certain circles in the United States keep on spinning the issue of Russia’s interference in the US elections even though they are unable to prove that.

“Greater Israel” in the Making? Israel to Control Mediterranean From Beirut to Gaza?

Hiding behind the usual accusations of ‘antisemitism’, the US Zionist movement is now in a position to control EU foreign policy as well as that of America through the new French President, the British Prime Minister (CFI) and the US Congress (AIPAC) together with the tacit approval of Germany’s Angela Merkel (who has already supplied Israel with a fleet of submarines now armed with nuclear cruise missiles). Not a bad achievement for a neo-colonial, minority political Zionist movement, in the 21st century!

France: Policeman lynched, beaten with iron bars by thirty Muslim migrants, opens fire to defend himself in Sevran

He opened fire to in order to escape, and one of the attackers was wounded in the stomach.The policeman was then rescued by reinforcements, his face bloodied, multiple bruises all over the body. This Saturday morning, he was still hospitalized.

Will this set off a new Muslim uprising in France, as we saw in the mass car burning, violence and utter lawlessness of a few years back? We shall see. But this time it will be far worse: their numbers are vastly greater.

It will be an incident like this that will spark the outbreak of war in Europe.

FALSEHOOD IN WAR-TIME: Propaganda Lies of the First World War by Arthur Ponsonby MP, 1928

"The use of the weapon of falsehood is more necessary in a country where military conscription is not the law of the land than in countries where the manhood of the nation is automatically drafted into the Army, Navy, or Air Service. The public can be worked up emotionally by sham ideals. A sort of collective hysteria spreads and rises until finally it gets the better of sober people and reputable newspapers".
