Macron is the winner, the boogeyman to scare the voters Le Penn herded the sheep to the evil empires candidate.

Bilderberg breathes a sigh of relief, as the EU candidate breezes past the winning post. Considering the EU has never been held in more dislike by the French Public, that is quiet an achievment.

Macron also has other image problems, which are only relevant in that they make him less electable, people are prejudiced

I will not list all of  Macrons negative points, but will cite his connections to the Banks and Big Money do not help his cause. World  wide people are in rebelion against the old order that Macron represents.

In plain english, before this election fiasco, that man probably could not have got elected to a parish council. The candidate represented everything that is publicly wrong in France, was Macron.

Macron was viewed as the solution by the likes of Rottenchildd Banksters, so they set about creating a scary monster to frighten the Sheeple of France. Here was the text book play that all should recognise. The public dutifully went on anything but Le Penn stampede by manipulation to vote Macron

The plan all long was Macron, they created, stage managed this election like they do with every other election. They allways back both candidates, who are mere puppets. Those that control through hidden influence pulling these puppet strings make elections an illusion, a slight of hand. Lets not be fooled, again and again.

To quote himself - we must stop being in perpetual reaction mode.

As Saty pointed out, get some altitude away from the ground fog of silly politics, see the Big Picture.


I checked out Rachel Maddow's show Friday night, and (as expected) she blamed Russia for the Macronleaks thing, drawing a parallel to the "Russian invasion" of Hillary's email server. She almost predicted a Le Pen win, and was gearing up to blame the Russians. She's no slouch though, and like all professional propagandists, gave herself an 'out' in case Macron won.

Her out? That 'if Macron wins' we will still KNOW that Russia had a significant influence on the election. She de-emphasized that statement (softer voice, understating that line), then voice volume UP to continue to blame Russia. She's a good propagandist for the MIC. She's making lots of money selling war with Russia to her audience.

Here's the thing - it didn't matter WHO won. The globalists control both sides.

Both Brexit and Trump seem to be establishment operations under anti-establishment cover. [/i]

I think Trump has proven his basic establishment creds by bringing the establishment into his admin. They may not all be Goldman Sachs, but the billionaires around the table have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo, or in the case of Palantir et al, extending their assault on the constitution beyond where Obama left off.

French Intellectual & Truther Thierry Meyssan

Kadima! En Marche!
by Thierry Meyssan

After having successively elected an agent of the CIA and an employee of the emirs of the Gulf to the Presidency of the French Republic, the French have been ripped off a third time, this time by an Israeli product. They believe that they have chased away the spectre of fascism by voting for a candidate supported by NATO, the Rothschilds, all the companies of the CAC40 and the unanimous Press. Far from understanding their mistake, they are still in a trance, and will probably not wake up before the end of the general elections.

As soon as his victory was announced, democratically elected President Emmanuel Macron defined a distance between himself and the People. Refusing to mingle with the crowd, he took a long, solitary walk across the courtyard of the Louvre where his supporters were gathered.

The team of elected French President Emmanuel Macron has managed to hypnotise the French nation. They managed to fabricate the election of their protégé with two thirds of the votes cast – a young man, only 39 years old, whose party was created on the Internet just one year ago, and who had until then never stood in any election.

Steele & Holt

This exploit was realised by the team of Steele & Holt, a mysterious company whose name refers to the TV series Remington Steele, a police procedural in which the director of a detective agency asks a thief (Pierce Brosnan) to play the rôle of her boss in order to serve as her cover.

Don't bother trying to find out who is hiding behind this company – you'll find nothing. Except for the fact that its two main clients are AXA and the Rothschild family. Everyone knows that Emmanuel Macron worked for the Rothschilds, but it's a well-guarded secret that they organised his party. As for the insurance company AXA, it is presided by Henri de La Croix, fifth Duke of Castries, who is also president of the NATO think-tank (the Bilderberg group), the Bosphorus Institute (Turkey's think-tank) and, in France, the Institut Montaigne (a right-wing think-tank).

Henry Kissinger also incidentally invited Macron to the annual meeting of the Bilderberg group in 2014, along with François Baroin and Christine Lagarde.

The Bosphorus Institute made it possible to identify and corrupt various personalities from the right and the left who lent their support to Macron.

The first meetings of the new party were held in the offices of the Institut Montaigne, whose headquarters were declared as the personal address of the Institut's director.

Kadima !

The name of the new party - En Marche !, was chosen in order to have the same initials as its candidate. Otherwise, it would have been called En Avant ! In Hebrew - Kadima ! When it was pointed out to general Ariel Sharon that the name of his new party evoked the name of Mussolini's party - Avanti ! - he retorted that that was not the case at all. En Avant ! was the order he gave to each of his special teams, for example when he invaded Beirut against the advice of his military staff.

Kadima ! and En Marche ! are centrist parties assembling personalities from the right and the left. Ariel Sharon was a well-known « centrist » who created his party in order to break away from Benjamin Netanyahu. Sharon was a colonialist who wanted to create a Palestinian state on the model of the South African Bantustans. For him, apartheid was the only way to preserve Israël. On the other hand, Netanyahu is a Talmudist. He refuses to accept the idea of sharing Palestine with the goyim. For him, they must be expelled, if they can't be exterminated.

We will no doubt learn later why Macron wanted to break with the Socialist Prime Minister, Manuel Valls. For the moment, it's enough to note the insistance with which Valls attempted to join En Marche ! and the flippancy with which Macron rejected him, to see that there is a serious conflict between them.

Fascism En Marche

In order to launch Macron, Steele & Holt – in other words NATO and the Rothschilds – relied on the old pro-US network of the Fondation Saint-Simon. Together, they staged the « peril Le Pen », so that many electors who are strongly opposed to Macron nonetheless voted for him for fear of a possible victory by the « foul beast ». Since there was little for which they could blame Marine Le Pen, they accused her of the crimes of her father... and many others.

This manipulation shows that in our « showbiz society », form is more important than content. Indeed, what are the characteristics of fascism ? The end of the class struggle, thanks to corporatism, which unites bosses and workers in the same organisations, the end of the right-left dialectic thanks to a unique party, and consequently, the end of all opposition by the use of force.

While the first of these three characteristics might have been applied to the vision of Jean-Marie Le Pen, none of them are valid for his daughter – however, the first two are applicable to the vision of Emmanuel Macron. He is supported by all the major bosses of the CAC40, as well as by the CGT. He does not question the capacity of the right- and left-wing parties to defend the values to which they claim to adhere, but calls their leaders to join him in his party to defend their common interests. There can be no doubt that if the general elections go the way Macron hopes, the destruction of the opposition will begin. Indeed, the unanimous support of the written Press for candidate Macron, and the campaign against dissenting Internet sites, give us a taste of things to come.

History repeats itself – in 1940, the French supported Philippe Petain in order to preserve themselves from Nazism, but it was Petain who installed fascism. In 2017, they voted for Macron in order to preserve themselves from fascism, yet he will be the one who installs it.

A hijacked campaign

It's true that some electors were disturbed both by the unusual personality of the candidates and by a wealth of propaganda methods which have never been used in Europe since the Second World War.

At the age of 15, Emmanuel Macron had a sexual relation with his drama teacher, who was 23 years older, moved in with her, and then married her 15 years later. Marine Le Pen inherited the presidency of her party from her father – she first of all cleaned it up, and then excluded him from it. In psychoanalytical terms, Macron married his mother, and Le Pen killed her father.

Above all, Emmanuel Macron's team did not hesitate to accuse his rivals of the worst forms of treason, without any logic, certain that the local and national Press – which it already controls in its entirety – would not dare to express the slightest criticism. The right-wing candidate, François Fillon, is now perceived as a thief, although not one of the accusations levelled against him has been verified. Marine Le Pen is considered to be the incarnation of fascism, although she has never supported the positions with which she is charged.

A solitary victory

As soon as his election was announced, President Macron gave a short speech from his campaign headquarters – a string of platitudes pronounced with the ponderous demeanour of a man who has suddenly felt the weight of his responsibilities descend upon his fragile shoulders. Then he offered himself a new moment of theatre with his supporters in the courtyard of the Louvre. He crossed Paris in a procession of limousines with tinted windows. He took a long, solitary, inaccessible walk across the courtyard of the Louvre to climb onto the podium which had been built in his honour. There, at the base of the pyramid, like Bonaparte, he delivered a new speech, once again consisting of verbiage, but this time in a frenzied tone - a man who has never seen combat. Finally, he gathered together with his family and a few militants to sing La Marseillaise.

Contrary to all his predecessors, at no time during this evening did he shake any hands. No-one was ever allowed to approach him. He allowed none of the political personalities who had supported him to appear alongside him and share his victory. They will only be able to collect the bounty of the betrayal of their respective parties by betraying them again and supporting him during the general elections in June.

It will only be when President Macron has a firm grasp on all the reins of power that he will allow France to wake up. It will be too late.

Forward, march !

French President-elect Macron has 'friends' across British Establishment

Emmanuel Macron, the "outsider candidate" who was elected French president last week, appears to in fact have deep ties across the political establishment in Britain and the US, taking in political figures on the left and right.

The 39-year-old former Rothschild banker has never held elected office. Despite being pitched as an outsider to the French political system, it appears he's backed by powerful political and business figures.

From former British Chancellor George Osborne to Labour's up-and-coming star Chuka Umunna, UK politicians are clamoring to flag their 'close connections' with Macron.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4 earlier this week, Umunna was not shy in advertising their relationship. Explaining why he didn't believe Macon's victory could have occurred in the UK, Umunna slipped in that Macron had originally floated the idea of forming a new party, En Marche, with him before he actually went ahead and did it.

"Emmanuel spoke to me some time ago, before he set up En Marche, and kind of floated the idea by me,"
Umunna said.

In a later BBC Newsnight interview, Umunna was coy when asked for more details about that conversation. "Well, I don't want to betray confidences," he said.

Osborne has also laid claim to a friendship with Macron. The former Tory chancellor says he formed a bond with the new French president when the pair were both finance ministers in the G7.

After Macron made it through the first round, the former chancellor congratulated his "friend" online. "Congratulations my friend," Osborne tweeted.

"Proof you can win from the center. At last, the chance for leadership that France needs."

    Congratulations to my friend @EmmanuelMacron. Proof you can win from the centre. At last, the chance for the leadership that France needs
    — George Osborne (@George_Osborne) 23 April 2017

Former leader of the Labour Party Ed Miliband was quick to cast doubt on how close the pair really are. Replying to Osborne's tweet, he wrote: "Do not panic about this tweet. I guess @emmunelmacron has many friends. I also met him once..."

    Do not panic too much about this tweet. I guess @EmmunelMacron has many friends. I also met him once... https://t.co/OzLb0q4r4m

British peer and arch political spin doctor Peter Mandelson, known in some corners as the 'Prince of Darkness,' got to know Macron when he was an EU commissioner. He has showered praise on the new French president since his election win.

Speaking to the BBC before Macron was elected, Mandelson suggested he could be seen as an "heir" to former Labour leader Tony Blair after appealing to both the left and right of France's centrist voters.

"It gives me great hope for France, and it gives me great hope for Europe,"
Mandelson said.

Secret plans to 'protect' France in the event of Le Pen victory emerge

Election win for far-right leader would have set off plans to 'keep the peace'
official says as support for Macron's party grows

It was never written down and never given a name, but France had a detailed plan to "protect the Republic" if far right leader Marine Le Pen was elected president, French media have reported.

"It was like a multi-stage rocket," an unnamed senior official told l'Obs magazine. "The philosophy, and the absolute imperative, was to keep the peace, while also respecting our constitutional rules."

News of the plan emerged as polls suggested support for the new centrist movement formed by Emmanuel Macron – who defeated Le Pen in the presidential runoff – was growing ahead of parliamentary elections on 11 and 18 June.

The survey showed his La République en Marche party on 32% of the vote, up six points since the 7 May election and well clear of its centre-right Les Républicains rivals on 19%.

A day after Macron unveiled his cabinet – an equal number of men and women from the left, right and centre, plus many newcomers to politics – another poll showed 61% approval for his ministerial choices.

The polls boost Macron's chances of securing an all-important majority in parliament to implement his promised reforms, although France's two-round voting system makes it notoriously hard to predict how many seats a party will win.

(VIDEO: Embedded at source link)

L'Obs cited three anonymous sources with knowledge of the emergency plan that would have been put into effect had Le Pen reached the Elysée palace, saying it was devised by a small group of ministers, chiefs of staff and top civil servants.

The magazine said the plan was aimed mainly at preventing serious civil unrest and "freezing" the political situation by convening parliament in emergency session and maintaining the outgoing prime minister in office.

Police and intelligence services were particularly concerned by the threat of "extreme violence" from mainly far left protesters in the event of a Le Pen victory as the country would have found itself "on the brink of chaos".

Even before the first round of voting on 23 April, a confidential note drawn up by the intelligence services announced that "without exception, every local public safety directorate has expressed its concern", Le Parisien reported.

Regional police chiefs were asked on 21 April to detail their crowd control and deployment plans, l'Obs said. Under France's ongoing state of emergency, more than 50,000 police and gendarmes and 7,000 soldiers were already on duty.

On 5 May, two days before the second round that Macron won by 66% to Le Pen's 34%, the national public safety directorate warned in another note that protesters were ready to use "fireworks, mortars and incendiary bombs".

Fears of political instability if the anti-immigration, anti-EU Front National leader had been elected were equally acute. Although he subsequently denied saying so, French media reported before the election that if Le Pen won, Socialist prime minister Bernard Cazeneuve would stay on at least until the parliamentary polls.

France's constitution does not oblige a prime minister to step down when a new president is elected. Under article 8, "the president appoints" prime ministers – but only parliament can remove them from office, through a vote of no confidence.

Le Pen could in principle have invoked article 16 of the constitution, allowing a president "extraordinary powers" in an acute emergency. But short of that, without a parliamentary majority she would not have been able to appoint a new premier.

According to l'Obs, the emergency plan also called for parliament to be convened in emergency session on 11 May, four days after the second round, to address the predicted "national crisis" precipitated by Le Pen's election.

Faced with mounting civil disorder and demanding France's 577 MPs step up to their "republican responsibilities", the government was then to have called – and, presumably, won – a motion of confidence.

The will of the electorate would have been respected: the presidency would have passed from François Hollande to Le Pen. But the government, officials said, would have assured "the security of the state ... Government is about planning ahead."

"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."

Le Pen French election victory would have triggered 'emergency crisis plan' – report

France was ready to deploy a secret crisis plan to "protect the republic" if far-right politician Marine Le Pen had won the election, a French magazine has reported, citing sources. The plan included flooding the streets with police to maintain order.

Citing three senior sources close to the French government and state organizations, France's L'Obs magazine has revealed that a plan was devised because the country was fearing "extreme violence" and chaos if Le Pen won the election against Emmanuel Macron.

The first priority, the magazine said, was to preserve order on the streets, as authorities expected major violent protests, The Local reported, citing the L'Obs article.

In addition, then-Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, who has now been replaced by Edouard Philippe, would have been required to remain in his post until the parliamentary elections in June, in order to maintain some measure of stability.

Cazeneuve's government would have also been asked to stay on. This would have forced Le Pen to accept a "cohabitation" system, in which a French president has to accept a government and prime minister from a different party.

In addition, the French parliament would have been recalled for an emergency session on the Wednesday following the May 7 election to discuss the "national crisis and outbreaks of violence," according to the report.

"The country would have come to a halt and the government would have just one priority, ensuring the security of the state," an unnamed source told L'Obs.

    — RT (@RT_com) May 4, 2017

The magazine noted that although the plan wasn't formally laid out in writing, it was discussed at a high level and was ready to be deployed if needed.

"It was an action plan with several layers. The philosophy, and the imperative priority, was to maintain civil peace while fully respecting our constitutional rules," a source said.

Le Pen's qualification for the second round of the election prompted outbreaks of violence in some cities across France. Demonstrators protesting on May Day threw petrol bombs at police.

Concerns about Le Pen's potential win were already taking place ahead of the first round of the election on April 23, with a confidential note from intelligence services, stating "without exception, every local public safety directorate has expressed its concern," Le Parisien reported a day before the voting.

Regional police chiefs were reportedly asked on April 21, two days before the first round of voting, to explain their crowd control and deployment plans to the government. On May 5, two days before the second round of voting, the national public safety directorate warned that protesters were ready to use "fireworks, mortars and incendiary bombs."

The so-called crisis plan reportedly devised by the government was ultimately not required, however, as Le Pen received just 34 percent of the votes in the runoff. Rival Emmanuel Macron claimed victory with 66 percent.

Le Pen is the leader of France's far-right National Front, a party founded by her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, in 1972. She is most well known for her anti-immigration, anti-Islamization, and anti-globalization rhetoric. She is a vocal supporter of US President Donald Trump, who praised her during the French election but stopped short of a full endorsement.


Macron: An American Trojan horse in the Elysee Palace
17 May 2017

The new French president, Emmanuel Macron, who was thrust into the French presidential race as a pro-European Union counterweight to prevent the election of National Front leader Marine Le Pen, appears to have more than a casual relationship with the United States. While he worked within the Ministry of the Economy as both a special inspector and as minister, Macron oversaw the virtual theft of strategic French industries by American firms having strong links to the U.S. Intelligence Community.

The hacking of the computers of Macron's «En Marche!» campaign movement by unknown parties yielded some interesting material. Defenders of Macron contend that the computer files released were either «fake» or extraneous information. However, one set of files dealing with the virtual theft of France's top information technology giant by individuals connected to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency is exactly the type of files one would expect the Macron campaign would keep. Macron's first job in the French government was to protect the interests of French companies from foreign competition and, most of all, acquisition.

The move by the American intelligence services to acquire French smart card technology leader Gemplus International began in 2001 and the operation was largely complete by 2004, the year Macron became an Inspector of Finances in the French Ministry of Economy. French industry has long been a target for surveillance and/or acquisition by American companies and the CIA has played an important role in such «economic warfare» operations. For example, the French electronics firm Thomson-CSF was long a top target for U.S. National Security Agency and CIA surveillance.

Documents concerning the successful takeover of Gemplus, along with its main factory in Gemenos, Bouches-du-Rhône, France, by an American firm called Texas Pacific Group (TPG) are included in the tranche of files lifted from the «En Marche!» computers. TPG first acquired Gemplus shares in February 2000. In 2006, Gemplus merged with Axalto to form Gemalto and the effective U.S. control of the firm was complete.

In September 2002, Alex Mandl, an American native of Vienna, Austria, and a former President of AT&T, chairman and CEO of Teligent, board member of the CIA's venture capital firm IN-Q-TEL, and member of the board of the neoconservative American Enterprise Institute, was named CEO of Gemplus International. He continues as the executive chairman of Gemalto.

As a result of the disclosures of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, it is now known that the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), working with the NSA, successfully penetrated the SIM cards used by Gemalto. The GCHQ/NSA successfully intercepted mobile communications using encryption-enabled Gemalto SIM cards in Afghanistan, Yemen, India, Serbia, Iran, Iceland, Somalia, Pakistan and Tajikistan. The GCHQ-NSA attack also targeted Gemalto SIM card personalization centers in Japan, Colombia. and Italy. The NSA and GCHQ hack of Gemalto's SIM chips by their joint Mobile Handset Exploitation Team (MHET) represents perhaps the largest NSA interception operation in history, one that saw billions of mobile calls and text messages successfully intercepted and decoded by NSA and its Bitish partner. More sinister is the inclusion of Gemalto SIM card identification data in the CIA's database of cell phones targeted in U.S. drone strikes.

«En Marche!» internal documents point to four French government agencies having conducted investigations into the Gemplus takeover. They are the «Renseignements généraux» (RG) (General Intelligence), «Direction de la sûreté du territoire» (DST), the Industry Ministry, and Macron's Economy Ministry.

The French corporate press, which lavished Macron with praise, a former Rothschild banker, describes the Gemplus documents as having nothing to do with Macron. The French media argues that Macron was a mere student at the elitist French civil service academy, the École nationale d'administration (ENA) until he graduated in 2004. However, as the leaked documents clearly indicate, the Gemplus takeover was still being investigated by the French government when Macron became an Inspector within the Economy Ministry in 2004. Since Macron's role was to ensure that French companies were free of foreign attempts to stymie French economic growth, his performance, as seen in the loss of French jobs to foreign interests, was abysmal.

It is very likely that En Marche's files on the Gemplus takeover were to have backup information at the ready in the event Macron's role in covering up details of the American takeover of Gemplus were to become public. Any political party must be prepared to confront revelations exposed by «opposition research» into their candidates. It is also noteworthy that one of En Marche's few published policy planks stated it was Macron's policy to «monitor» but not prevent foreign ownership of strategic French industries and businesses.

In 2008, Macron left government to join the Rothschild & Cie Banque. He also became a leader in the neoconservative-heavy French-American Foundation, which counts among its alum Hillary Clinton, General Wesley Clark, and former World Bank president Robert Zoellick.

The operative question about Macron is: what did he know about the Gemplus takeover and when did he know it? «En Marche's» Gemplus files, contained in a folder labeled «Macron» and dealing with the American takeover, read like a John LeCarré spy novel.

One file, marked «Confidential», and sent to Stefan Quandt of the billionaire Quandt family of BMW and Daimler fame in Germany, deals with Gemplus's plummeting stock value in 2001 amid «extremely tense relationship and clashes between the main people at the top echelons, and breakdown of communication with the personnel. As a result, the bulk of them is completely unmotivated today».

As an inspector within the Economy Ministry, it is astounding that Macron would not have been aware of the violation of French law that occurred with the American takeover of Gemplus. This is also described in another Gemplus file from his campaign, which points to the situation regarding Gemplus's post-U.S. takeover: «Irresponsible statements, often followed by reversals on site closures and firing of personnel, even before consulting with their representatives (as the law and common sense requires)».

The Quandts are very publicity-shy and there is a good reason for it. Guenther Quandt manufactured Mauser firearms and anti-aircraft rockets for the Third Reich. He divorced his first wife, Magde Quandt, after they had one child, Harald Quandt. Magde then married Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. Stefan Quandt, who was involved in the takeover of Gemplus, is the son of Harald Quandt's half-brother Herbert Quandt.

The negative information on Gemplus resulted in a January 24, 2002 report from Goldman Sachs that urged the company to continue with its American-directed restructuring to maintain market health. Although he was a student at the ENA at the time, there is scant information on what projects to which Macron was assigned from 2001 to 2003 by his civil service professors.

Other Gemplus-related files in the «En Marche!» folder include those related to one of the principals of Gemplus, Ziad Takieddine, a French-Lebanese Druze arms broker and graduate of the CIA-linked American University of Beirut. Takieddine helped engineer the American takeover with the help of Herr Quandt. Takieddine has helped conclude major French arms deals with Libya, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan. Accused of money laundering in the British Virgin Islands by his ex-wife, Takieddine is also the uncle of Amal Alamuddin, the wife of actor George Clooney. Takieddine is also a bitter political foe of former President Nicolas Sarkozy, who lost out in the presidential race in 2017 to rival conservative François Fillon. Macron edged out Fillon in the first round of the presidential election, coming in second ahead of Fillon's third place finish.

Takieddine, Quandt, and a suspected CIA-linked firm, Texas Pacific Group (TPG), were all clearly part of a conspiracy to get rid of Gemini's French co-founder Marc Lassus and the firm's French executives. The decision to fire Lassus and his French colleagues was made at a Gemplus board meeting held in Washington, DC, not in France, on December 15, 2001. Another principal in the American takeover of Gemplus was Lee Kheng Nam, a Singapore business executive and a recipient of an M.S. degree in Operations Research and System Analysis from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. The co-founder of TPG, David Bonderman of Fort Worth, Texas was also heavily involved in the hostile takeover of Gemplus. TPG's acquisition of Gemplus shares was conducted through a virtually unknown shell company registered in Gibraltar that was called «Zensus». Bonderman, who is Jewish, created a political stir in 2012 in Egypt when he met with Khairat El-Shater, the deputy leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and a member of the Mohamed Morsi government. Bonderman said he was looking for «investment opportunities» in Egypt.

In an undated Word document found in the «En Marche!» computers, Lassus is quoted as saying, «I am convinced that the investment TPG had some kind of agreement with its government to move the head office to California. They tried again in January 2002». The Gemplus workers' unions predicted the firm's production would move from France to Poland. The largest French union, «Confédération générale du travail» (CGT), said the takeover of Gemplus was to strip France of its smart card technology leadership. Gemplus employed 7000 French workers before its takeover by the Americans. The undated Word document also refers to French government agencies having «launched inquiries» and sought «internal informers». Did Macron play a role in either the investigations by the Economy Ministry or ratting out Gemplus «internal informers» to his American friends?

When the U.S. firm General Electric took over the French turbine and nuclear technology company Alstom, then-Economy Minister Macron said he approved of such takeovers because «state intervention in industry only happens in Venezuela». That came as music to the ears of the billionaires in the Donald Trump administration.

Macron completes electoral grand slam amid record-low turnout

French President Emmanuel Macron wrapped up his extraordinary string of electoral victories on Sunday as his fledgling new party picked up a large majority of seats in legislative polls marred by the lowest turnout on record.

The takeover is complete. Just over a month after his stunning election to the Elysée Palace, France's youngest-ever president has guided his party to a huge win in legislative polls, crushing the old parties of left and right that have dominated French politics for decade. His La République en Marche (LREM) didn't even exist 15 months ago. Now projections say the centrist upstart and a smaller ally will control some 360 seats in the 577-seat National Assembly, heralding an era of centrist hegemony in the country that invented the left-right divide.

Across the country, LREM candidates – most of them political novices, much like the president – ripped apart the political script, storming bastions of the right and the left with astonishing ease. Admittedly, they fell short of the "Soviet-style" majority some polls had forecast. But they will still enjoy one of the largest majorities in modern history. And that's without counting the handful of survivors from other parties who have already pledged to support France's new president, in a desperate bid to save their own skin.

Record abstention

While Macron's triumph paves the way for the sweeping reforms he has promised, it also comes with a number of important caveats, starting with the massive level of abstention that made it possible. For the first time in history, turnout in a legislative election has slumped to below 50%, in both rounds. On Sunday, a mere 43% of voters bothered to cast their ballots. This means the 42% of votes won by LREM candidates account for less than 20% of registered voters.


France's Macron 'to end state of emergency', but keep its anti-terror powers


QuotePresident Emmanuel Macron's government wants to end a 14-month 'state of emergency' in France, but at the same time integrate several of its exceptional anti-terrorism powers into common law, alarming judges and civil liberty groups.

Warrant-less property searches and house arrests, two controversial measures currently used by French security officials under special state of emergency powers, could become ordinary policing practices under a new bill being sponsored by the country's new government.

The text was submitted for review to the Council of State, a body providing legal advice to France's executive branch, on Wednesday, with excerpts published by leading French daily Le Monde. "Almost all of the state of emergency measures will become the law of the land," the newspaper, which had seen a copy of the bill, wrote.

France granted the police special powers in the wake of multiple deadly terrorist attacks over the past two and a half years. Former president François Hollande originally declared the state of emergency in November 2015, when jihadists killed 130 people in simultaneous attacks across the Paris area.

The new bill would also normalise banning protest marches, shutting down places of worship suspected of sharing extremist views, forcing people under house arrest to give police access to their electronic devices and using electronic tagging for purposes of surveillance.

Emmanuel Macron kicks off controversial attempt to reform France's labour laws


'Emmanuel Macron's government has launched a programme of controversial labour reforms designed to make it easier to hire and fire employees, create jobs and spur France's economic growth.

Mr Macron's flagship promise of sweeping economic and social change, which would give companies more of a say over working conditions, was presented to the new cabinet on Wednesday.

The centrist, who won an overwhelming majority in France's legislative elections in an alliance with the middle-ground MoDem party, made the reforms a key pillar of his campaign pledges, and passing them will be seen as a key test for the new government.

Mass street protests were expected over the summer, but only the hardline General Confederation of Labour (CGT) union has called for a strike in September over Mr Macron's plans.'

100 members to quit Macron party over 'lack of democracy'

'Some 100 activists from Emmanuel Macron's political party are quitting because the movement "offends fundamental principles of democracy" and shows "arrogance and contempt" for its dialogue-seeking members.

The disillusioned members of the ruling Republic on the Move (LREM) party announced that they would leave the movement ahead of the LREM Congress which is to take place in the city of Lyon on Saturday, the FranceInfo channel reported, releasing the group's bitterly-worded manifesto.

Calling themselves "100 democrats," the group is said to mostly include ordinary members, but also some elected officials and regional heads. "Democracy is no longer on the move!"  screams the manifesto's title, playing upon the party's name.'

Rothschild front-man Macron vows to tighten (independent) media control because 'fake news threatens democracy'


'Emmanuel Macron has said he will overhaul media law in France this year to fight the spread of "fake news" on social media.

Since he was elected last year, the French President has criticised Russian media in particular, openly accusing TV channel RT of sowing disinformation about him via its website and social media during the presidential election.

"If we want to protect liberal democracies, we must have strong legislation," Mr Macron told a news conference on Wednesday.

Mr Macron said the legislation would concern social media platforms, especially during election periods, and deeply change the role of France's media watchdog CSA.

Websites would have to say who is financing them and the amount of money for sponsored content would be capped, the French president said.

In the case of fake news published during elections, an emergency legal action could allow French authorities to suppress that content or even block access to the website, Mr Macron said.'
