‘Lacklustre Campaign’ Sees Macron Falling in Polls

Polls in the French presidential race are tightening as Emmanuel Macron’s campaign gets off to a lacklustre start and more voters come out in support of Marine Le Pen.
According to a new poll from Opinionway-Orpi released Thursday, the gap is narrowing between pro-globalist presidential candidate Macron and rival Le Pen, with Macron losing two percentage points in just two days, L’Express reports.

Macron dropped below 60 per cent to 59 per cent, with Le Pen at 41 per cent. The survey was carried out multiple times since February and Le Pen has only crossed the symbolic 40 per cent mark twice.

In the first polling after they had made it through to the second round, the En Marche! candidate had polled at 65 per cent of voting intentions, compared with 35 per cent for Le Pen.

MARINE LE PEN has launched a scathing attack on the French “oligarchy” for backing her election rival Emmanuel Macron – who she called “destructive”.

Marine Le Pen Embarrasses Macron

Marine Le Pen is not out of the race for the French presidency by any stretch. Le Pen embarrassed pretty boy Emmanuel Macron in his home town today.
Macron was visiting a Whirlpool clothes dryer plant that was closing in Amiens in northern France in an attempt to smooth over his image of a snooty, private school upbringing that rocketed the young man to socialist Economics minister at age 36.
Poorer voters in small-town France have flocked to Le Pen.
While Macron calmly met with union reps from the factory, Le Pen suddenly appeared unannounced at the factory gates and posed with picketing workers. The event was covered live on most French TV news channels.

The May 7 run-off between herself and Emmanuel Macron, will be interesting for it is a test of how strong the populist movement has become.

French 'Proof' That Assad Used Sarin in Khan Sheikhoun Turns out to Be Complete BS

For over a week now France has claimed it has irrefutable evidence that Syrian military used gas against civilians earlier this month and would present it shortly.

It has now done so. It says it has determined that sarin used in the 2017 Khan Sheikhoun attack came from the same stock used in an earlier 2013 attack.

This is it. This is the extent of its super-duper evidence.

Because Paris "knows" the Syrian army used sarin in 2013, which Syria denies and was never proven, France now "knows" Syria also used sarin in 2017.

Anywhere else that would be called circular logic.
If anything, if samples from Khan Sheikhoun match sarin used in 2013 that makes it all the more likely that it came from rebel stock. The same stock they ultimately used to stage the East Ghouta false flag.

French Elections: Macron is a former Rothschild Banker who was groomed at an elite feeder school to eventually go on to run the country.

Short Choices: The French Presidential Elections

The establishment got another burning in the French elections on Sunday, revealing again that there is no level of voter disgust that will not find some voice in the current range of elections. The terror for pollsters and the establishment now is whether Marine Le Pen will realise her anti-Euro project and drag the French nation kicking and moaning into a new, even more fractious order. In her way will be the pro-European Union figure of Emmanuel Macron.

Le Parisien uncovers French lie on 1960 nuke test

A report says France covered up the extent of the nuclear fallout from its first atomic bomb test in North Africa.

The report published by the French daily Le Parisien was based on a recently declassified military map regarding the fallout from the detonation of the Gerbouise Bleue bomb in the Algerian desert in 1960.

The map revealed that radioactive particles reached the Italian island of Sicily and the southern Spanish coast on the 13th day after the blast.

Lawyer Fatima Benbraham, who represents dozens of cases in Algeria, said the map shows that Algeria and practically the whole Saharan region was contaminated following the atomic test.

Analyst Who Predicted Trump's Rise Bets On Le Pen Victory

“HUNTING FOR EASTER FASCISM”: CAMPAIGN AGAINST LE PEN IS IN FULL SWING

The main object of Le Pen’s criticism became bankers, European bureaucrats, Brussels, technocrats and finanancial lobby. They have huge power and, that’s why, they take a decision without considering people’s will.

“They control our laws; they are leading us to our surrender and subordination. They owe our territories and we cannot decide anymore who comes to our country. They own our rights: the French in France have fewer rights than foreigners”, - Mrs. Le Pen mentioned. The leader of the National Front reminded about a threat from terrorists, drug dealers, and mafia, which are the consequences of non-controlled borders in France.

“The principle of solidarity does not reflect the interests of sovereign policy in France anymore”, - Mrs. Le Pen added. “This reflects not only the material aspects of life: the shortage of work places,infringement of native citizens’ rights and so on, but it reflects the loss of our own history and culture”.

Worst nightmare for EU as French election could be between TWO candidates wanting Frexit

THE European Union (EU) is facing catastrophe as anti-Brussels parties gain popularity in the French Presidential election.

Far-left candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon is enjoying a surprise rise in the polls to join Front National leader Marine Le Pen as a feasible anti-EU choice in the contest.

After weeks of polls predicting a showdown between Mrs Le Pen and Europhile socialist Emmanual Macron, Mr Melenchon has had a sudden surge in the polls after performing well in the television debates in the run up to the unpredictable election.

The Communist-backed candidate wants to pull France out of the EU as well as the military alliance NATO.

If the more left-wing supporters from candidate Emmanuel Macron switch to Mr Melenchon, a Le Pen-Melenchon second round is increasingly likely.

Far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen denied Sunday that the French state was responsible for the wartime round-up of Jews at a Paris cycling track who were then sent to Nazi death camps.

Former President Jacques Chirac and current leader Francois Hollande have both apologised for the role French police played in the round-up of more than 13,000 Jews at the Vel d'Hiv cycling track which was ordered by Nazi officers in 1942.

She added: "I think that generally speaking if there are people responsible, it's those who were in power at the time. It's not France."

"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.
