General Strike Declared In French Guyana

Macron makes geography gaffe about troubled French Guiana

Emmanuel Macron made the blunder during a whirlwind tour of France's overseas territories.

"What's been happening in French Guiana over the past few days is serious," he told journalists, referring to tensions mounting over a general strike scheduled for the French overseas department on Monday.

"My first response is a call for calm, because blocking the airport runways and takeoffs - and sometimes even blocking off the function of the island itself is not the response to the situation."

The error - in case you missed it - was that French Guiana isn't an island at all but a coastal block of land in the northern reaches of southern America

US Will Keep Ground Troops in Libya

In a press briefing at the Pentagon today, African Command leader Gen. Thomas Waldhauser announced that the US intends to keep ground troops in Libya for the foreseeable future to support “friendly forces,” and to “degrade” the ISIS forces that remain in the country.

Waldhauser did not specify how many US troops are in Libya now, or how many will stay, but did estimate that there were less than 200 ISIS fighters left in Libya. The US had announced the end of the anti-ISIS campaign in Libya back in December, but never fully withdrew from the country.

The US forces were in Libya trying to help the “unity” government defeat ISIS in the city of Sirte. US officials repeatedly claimed the city was totally surrounded, and that no ISIS fighters would get away, though when the fighting finally ended, a substantial number of ISIS fighters did in fact get away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this is "military-speak" for the reality that the US government is never leaving Libya because of the oil and the oil pipelines.

'Russia & the US are both GREAT POWERS' Le Pen promises to move beyond 'Cold War politics'

She said: “I don’t see any good reason to engage in a Cold War in any form.

“Russia as well as the US is a great power.

“It’s very important for France to build up balanced relations with both of these countries.

“I think we could do that with Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump.”

She went on to claim it was time to drop trade sanctions against Russia, which were introduced by the EU after Putin moved troops to annex the Ukrainian province of Crimea.

Ms Le Pen told RT: “The priority is to allow cooperation between Russia and France, not only in culture but also in business and strategic cooperation such as in the fight against ISIS and also in energy."

The French want something fresh: 6th Republic and taxes on robots

The results of first televised debate of French presidential candidates do not look too comforting. The debate has shown that France is unable to determine its development strategy under new and extremely complicated conditions. The French elite is divided, the society is disoriented - everything indicates a looming acute political crisis that the new president of France will have to face. Leftist candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon stated that he was going to become the last President of the Fifth Republic and initiate the reforms that would create the Sixth French Republic. A survey conducted by Elabe sociological institute immediately after the debate showed that Mélenchon took the second place on his credibility, losing only to Emmanuel Macron and leaving all other three contenders for presidency behind. Macron seemed credible only to 29 percent of the polled, while leftist Mélenchon - to 20 percent.

France 'ceased to be a fully sovereign nation' — Le Pen

France has ceased to be a fully sovereign nation, leader of the French National Front political Party, Marine Le Pen, said at a meeting of Russia’s State Duma (lower house of parliament) International Affairs Committee on Friday. "The fact is that at the moment the problem we are facing can be summed up in the following way: France has ceased to be a fully sovereign country," she said. According to Le Pen, this stems from the fact that France has "delegated some of its powers, at least those concerning trade negotiations and diplomatic functions, to the European Union. "The EU is behaving like an opponent of the idea, which we are upholding in our policy," she stressed. "I hope France will regain its sovereignty, and there will be no reasons whatsoever to prevent resumption of the Russian-French relations so that they could reach the cruise speed necessary for their development," the politician stated.

How Paris has become one of the most dangerous capitals in the world

A recent report said that terror attacks, strikes and floods cost the Paris region tourism industry £644 million in the first six months or so of last year.

As the region gets 13 per cent of its gross domestic product from tourism the huge losses are having an effect on people’s lives and lifestyles.

Last year an estimated 85 million people visited France, generating seven per cent of the country’s GDP, but the country needs millions more to boost a flagging economy.

Was this done, perhaps, to build "sympathy" for a tone-deaf and blind organisation, which does not care, or understand, what hardship it places on the people of member countries?!?

At the moment, a true motive cannot be established, and no group has claimed responsibility.

French presidential candidate Fillon charged in jobs probe

French presidential candidate Francois Fillon was given preliminary charges Tuesday in an investigation of taxpayer-funded jobs his wife and children received but allegedly never performed.

The charges further damage the former prime minister's chances at winning the two-round April 23-May 7 presidential election in which he once was viewed as the leading contender.

Investigating judges filed the charges Tuesday, Celine Clement-Petremann of the national financial prosecutor's office said. It was a surprise move - Fillon had said the judges summoned him for Wednesday, but they apparently moved up the decision.

Fillon is accused of misusing public funds, receiving money from the misuse of public funds, complicity in misusing public funds and improper declaration of assets, among other charges, the prosecutor's office said.

Mr Fillon also said he wanted to force austerity on a French public already struggling from a wave of strikes, cut backs and terrorism.

And he said he wanted to bring an end to the 35-hour working week and raise the retirement age to 65 from 62.

Marine Le Pen: "I Will Introduce The New Franc At A Rate Of One-To-One To The Euro"

Providing some much needed details on her plans to redenominate the French currency, should she win the French presidential election in under two months, on Wednesday Marine le Pen told RTL radio should would introduce a new franc at a rate of one-to-one to the euro and then allow it to fluctuate, despite previously saying that any new national currency would continue to be pegged to a basket of currencies.

Incidentally, many agree with Le Pen, and according to Paddy Power, Italy now has even odds of leaving the EU before 2025, far higher than even perpetually depressed Greece.

Marine Le Pen Explains to 5-Year-Old: ‘I’m Not a Putin Groupie — I’m a Political Leader of a Great Nation’

This 60 Minutes interview was supposed to be the last nail in Le Pen's coffin — sort of like those politically-motivated police raids on her campaign headquarters.

But things did not go according to plan.

Despite Cooper bringing his A-game — a laundry list of gotcha-journalism and smears — Len Pen held her ground.

She was also considerate enough to use simple language to help Anderson and his American audience understand why they have no idea what they're talking about

France's Death Spiral

In 1990, the "Gayssot law" was passed, stipulating that "any discrimination based on ethnicity, nation, race or religion is prohibited". Since then, it has been used to criminalize any criticism of Arab and African delinquency, any question on immigration from the Muslim world, any negative analysis of Islam. Many writers have been fined and most "politically incorrect" books on those topics have disappeared from bookshops.

The French government asked the media to obey the "Gayssot law." It also asked that history textbooks be rewritten to include chapters on the crimes committed by the West against Muslims, and on the "essential contribution" of Islam to humanity. All history textbooks are "Islamically correct."

In hospitals, Muslims are increasingly asking to be treated only by Muslim doctors, and refusing to let their wives be treated by male doctors.
