Meet the Top Four Players in France’s Election

FILLON, LE PEN, MELENCHON, AND MACRON.

A nice little guide to use when following the French presidential election on Sunday, today. The final vote will be taken May 7, with the top two candidates facing each other.

Excerpt from Lew Rockwell

There are eleven aspirants in the presidential race though only four are considered serious candidates: former Prime Minister Francois Fillon; newcomer Emanuel Macron; firebrand leftist Jean-Luc Mélenchon; and far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen.

My favorite is none of the above. He’s a towering, craggy-faced character named Jean Lasalle from the Pyrenees mountains on the border with Spain with a delightfully thick accent that harks back to the southern Provencal language. He’s as authentic as they come, a real human being who might be able to tame France’s bully-boy unions. Alas, Lasalle’s chances appear slim.

By contrast to the rough-hewn Lasalle is the leading candidate, Emmanuel Macron. Just who Macron really is remains a puzzle. He came from an academic background, worked for the mighty Rothschild banking empire, then as an economic advisor and minister to President Holland. At 39 years old, Macron is blandly attractive, youthful, and so far untainted by scandal except for the oddity of being married to his former schoolteacher two decades his senior.

Macron claims to be a middle way between old antagonists of left and right. He calls for gentle reforms and revitalization of the European Union. Women like him. What he stands for is unclear. His deep links to the Rothschild’s make many uncomfortable. To others, he’s too smooth and full of bromides. Still, the polls say that Macron will win both this Sunday’s vote and the second round on 7 May.

Former Prime Minister Francois Fillon was the front-runner until severely damaged by accusations he had lined his pockets with government money and put his wife Penelope and children on the government payroll.

It was sad indeed to see this straight-arrow conservative candidate undone by what looked like sleaze. Fillon would have made a capable prime minister.

Next, Madame Marine Le Pen. She has been trying to distance herself from pugnacious National Front founder and her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen. The old boy has been given the bum’s rush from his party for daring to say that the Jewish Holocaust was a mere ‘detail’ of history. I spent a long time interviewing Papa Le Pen in his home outside Paris. He is not a fascist, as critics charge, but an old-style supporter of the 1940’s Vichy government of Marshal Pétain.

Marine Le Pen is no charmer, to be sure. She is rough, tough and often nasty. She wants Muslims out of France, a pullout from the EU and NATO, and a return to the old French franc. Like President Trump, she is popular in working class, high unemployment, low education areas. Le Pen has become the champion of downcast French suffering from what they call, ‘la morosité’ (moroseness).

Finally, the last of the leading candidates, Jean-Luc Mélenchon. He’s an old-time leftist full of loopy Marxist schemes about actually reducing France’s already short work week, reducing the retirement age, and taxing the pants of people who make more than 400,000 euros a year. Mélenchon wants out of NATO, revised relations with the EU, rejects being ordered around by the United States, and wants to ditch the euro.

Mélenchon may be an old-style firebrand but he’s very popular with youth and, of course, the left. He’s completely upstaged the lackluster Socialist candidate, Benoit Hamon and has soared in the polls. What French like about Mélenchon is his wit, sense of humor, and sharp debating skills. He appears authentic, platitude-free and bursting with what the French call ‘élan.’ Mélenchon is always fun to watch.

Polls say that Marine Le Pen and Macron will win this weekend’s first round. Macron is then favored to crush Le Pen in the 7 May vote. But France is now in a dither over the possibility of a win by Mélenchon this Sunday. That would leave him facing off against le Pen: the far right versus the far left. Interesting, bien sûre, but the prospect is giving France’s stock market, banks and investors a big scare.

If either were to win on 7 May, France might quit the euro and the European Union – a much graver event than Britain’s Brexit. The fate of the EU is hanging in the balance. Bankers are praying that the silky-smooth Monsieur Macron will save them from the vengeful heirs of Karl Marx and Marshall Pétain.

Clash Between Kurds and Afghans at Dunkirk Migrant Camp Sparks Massive Fire, 600 Missing

Britain’s Sky News is reporting that 600 migrants are missing following a huge fire that destroyed the Grand-Synthe migrant camp in France.

Although Europe would be better off if the alleged 600 missing migrants were consumed by the flames, the lack of concern by the media suggests that there are now 600 camp inhabitants on the loose in France.

The humane thing to do now would be to return the migrants back to their own home countries. That won’t happen, so France now has the problem of containing the homeless migrants.

Sky News

Around 600 migrants are missing after being evacuated when a huge blaze ravaged their camp, reducing it to “a heap of ashes”.

The Grande-Synthe migrant camp – home to around 1,500 people – is situated outside the northern French city of Dunkirk and was set up a year ago by Doctors Without Borders.

Corenne Torre, head of the humanitarian group in France, said while 900 people were evacuated to safe shelters including local gyms, some 600 migrants were unaccounted for.

“We just don’t know where they are,” she said.

The fire erupted hours after clashes between up to 150 Kurds and Afghans.

Riot police moved into the camp to break up the trouble. Ten people were injured, with some being treated in hospital for knife wounds.

Officials have linked the fire to the fighting and an investigation has been launched to determine the cause of the blaze – the flames of which were visible from several miles away.

“There is nothing left but a heap of ashes,” said Michel Lalande, chief of France’s Nord region.

“It will be impossible to put the huts back where they were before.”

Firefighters tackled the blaze through the night as the camp’s inhabitants were evacuated.

“I lost all my documents,” said one Iraqi migrant. “I just have only this paper that says I’m a refugee in France.”

He said Kurds and Afghans had clashed before the fire erupted, but he did not know why.

“We are refugees here in France. We don’t have any place… we don’t know what to do. We lost everything,” he added.

Grande-Synthe’s population swelled after a huge makeshift camp, 19 miles away, known as the “Calais Jungle”, was dismantled by the authorities in October.

French officials decided last month that the camp population must be gradually reduced to 700 – with migrants housed in special centres – and security increased to keep out traffickers.

From my armchair perspective, Marine Le Pen is the best, last hope that France can avoid even more pain associated with the Muslim invasion and colonization.

The large influx into Europe of migrants fleeing poverty and war elsewhere is also a hot button issue in France, where the far-right, anti-immigration leader Marine Le Pen is one of the frontrunners in a presidential election now less than two weeks away.

Le Pen on Tuesday repeated that she would close migrant camps and France’s borders, also drastically cutting migration should she be elected.

“This chaos has to end,” she said in a statement. Opinion polls show Le Pen tied with centrist Emmanuel Macron in the first round on April 23 then losing to him in a run-off of the two top scoring candidates on May 7.

Setting aside her issues with migrants, Le Pen is now in trouble with the Jews for suggesting that France bore no responsibility for the so-called Holocaust.

CNN

Le Pen suggested France was not responsible for the wartime round-up of Jews who were sent to Nazi death camps. With just 13 days until the first round of voting in France’s presidential election, her remarks have been met with widespread condemnation.

“I don’t think France is responsible for the Vel d’Hiv,” Le Pen told French broadcaster LCI on Sunday, arguing that the Nazi-collaborationist Vichy regime “was not France.”

“I think that generally speaking if there are people responsible, it’s those who were in power at the time. It’s not France,” she added.

According to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, some 1,000 Jews were deported to Auschwitz every two or three days in the two months following the arrests at Vel d’Hiv. Nearly 38,000 Jews had been deported to Auschwitz from France by the end of September 1942. By 1945, just 780 of them remained alive.

Still think diversity is a strength? Imagine what a peaceful world if there were no Jews, no Muslims, and no blacks.

France’s Le Pen Meets Putin on Russian Visit, Seeks Friendship Not Cold War

Quick! Somebody do something about Marine Le Pen. She must be a Russian spy or something.

How can she sit there across the table from the new Hitler. Shocking! Disgusting!

Burn her at the stake like Joan of Arc.

MARINE Le Pen has pledged to ditch what she calls “the Cold War politics of the west” as she reiterated her support for both Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

he poll-storming Front National leader met with Vladimir Putin in Moscow in her highest profile diplomatic visit since announcing her campaign for the French presidency.

And while meeting with the former Soviet strongman she committed to working with Russia and the US President to do away with the Cold War rivalries of the past.

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.

France shouldn’t put limits on itself when it comes to improving relations with Russia.

“First of all, we should lift the sanctions [against Russia] that actually have been forced upon us by the European Union.”

It comes after claims Putin may meddle in the French election following allegations he helped Donald Trump ascend to the White House.

Ms Le Pen added: “I hear all the time French president Hollande talking about it, but I have never seen any proof to these accusations.

“At the same time, I see that Hollande does not ask the US for explanations, although it turned out the CIA eavesdropped on some European leaders and the 2012 candidates for the French presidential elections.

“I think we should stop this policy of double standards – this is what creates a sense of injustice not only for Russian people, but for many nations worldwide.”

Wow! There’s somebody running for office who doesn’t want to have World War III with Russia.

Make her your new president, France.

Three Million Africans are Waiting to Cross into Greece on Way to Western and Northern Europe

That photo above used to illustrate this Infowars story is also from Infowars. I notice that scary blacks are prominent in the photo.

Whatever Alex Jones, the publisher of Infowars, is, he’s also likely to be a race realist. There’s no way that a guy like him wouldn’t understand just how incompatible the black race is with the Western way of life.

Infowars

While visiting Athens on Thursday, European Commissioner for Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos said that there are approximately 3 million refugees waiting to cross into Greece from Turkey in an effort to reach Western and Northern Europe.

The news comes at a time when repeated threats from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan along with many of his advisors and aides imply that the Brussels-Ankara deal might come to an end.

Mr. Avramopoulos stated that the deal signed last year between Turkey and the EU had reduced the influx of migrants toward Europe and reduced the number of deaths at sea while stressing the need to safeguard the deal in order to curb human smuggling in the Aegean.

Thousand of migrants are already bottlenecked in reception centers on the islands of the eastern Aegean, which is the first point of arrival for most migrants arriving in Greece from Turkey.

Although the Infowars article is short, the implications are big.

The blackening of Europe has to be stopped if the continent is to survive. The question I’ve seen is whether Le Pen will be chosen as the new leader of France, and if so, whether she can do whatever it takes to permanently halt the flood of hungry, illiterate, worthless black and brown bodies destroying Europe.
