    reports Paris Match.

    Support for the Republicans’s candidate is eroding among voters who opted for Nicolas Sarkozy in 2012, and also people in France who are less well off, and sceptical of his free marketeer reform ambitions. In vital categories, Fillon faces setbacks in support with minus 12 points among workers (8 per cent) and minus 11 among the wider middle and lower middle class (11 per cent).

    However, even if Le Pen wins the first round in April, polls published Tuesday show she could be defeated by 64 per cent to 36 per cent in the subsequent election runoff. According to the survey, independent candidate Emmanuel Macron, a former economy minister in France, would win 17 to 20 per cent of the vote in the first round.

    The poll results showed none of the four main contenders for the candidacy for the ruling Socialist party even reaching the second round in the scenarios put forward, but former Prime Minister Manuel Valls is currently favourite to fill the slot.

    Le Pen is a noted Eurosceptic and has promised to hold a referendum regarding France’s membership of the European Union (EU) following populist victories at the ballot box for Brexit and Donald Trump in 2016.

    Noting that Fillon “succeeded in his primary by identifying himself as a man of Catholic beliefs and values and an opponent of same-sex marriage and abortion”, veteran conservative columnist Pat Buchanan has said the front-runners this year in France’s presidential election indicate that people in Europe are tired of the western model of “liberal democracy”.

    Marine Le Pen here in basement of #Trump tower. Via @srl . Trump met Farage (UK) in Nov, Bannon spoke openly supporting populist wave in EU

    11:22 AM - 12 Jan 2017






    Story continues:

    Ms Le Pen, who is currently leading in the polls, is visiting the city in a private capacity, according to her campaign chief David Rachline.

    Bloomberg quotes an unnamed aide to Donald Trump as saying the President-Elect has no plans to meet with Ms Le Pen.

    Mr Rachline also confirmed: “It’s not on her public agenda. We don’t communicate about private visits.”

    Marine Le Pen has been an outspoken supporter of President-elect Trump over the course of the United States Presidential election cycle. The visit comes after a number of meetings between the President-elect and Britain’s Nigel Farage, and has launched a raft of speculation on Twitter over the nature of the visit.

    One poll earlier this week put the Front National leader ahead of centre-right candidate François Fillon in the race to be France’s next president. The poll by Ifop-Fiducial put Ms Le Pen on 26 to 26.5 per cent support, while Mr Fillon was on 24 to 25 per cent.

    However, she may still face defeat thanks the France’s two-round electoral system, with 64 per cent of voters saying they would vote for Mr Fillon in a runoff between the two candidates.

    Ms Len Pen is gaining support with her populist, Eurosceptic policies. She has already pledged to renegotiate France’s membership of the European Union and put the result to a referendum. She has also signalled her opposition to France’s membership of the euro currency, which many French people blame for holding back the economy and impoverishing them.

    However, she has also gained large support for her strong-borders views and her opposition to Islamisation.

    Her popularity rose in particular after last July’s terror attack in Nice, when she called on then interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve to resign after a spate of Islamist attacks.

    “In any other country in the world, a minister with a death toll as horrendous as Bernard Cazeneuve – 250 dead in 18 months – would have resigned a long time ago,” she said.

    She added that the main cause of the wave of Islamist attacks in France is Islamic State and their “murderous ideology that we let develop in our country

    The Revolt Against Globalism: Marine Le Pen Moves Into 1st Place In France!

    The Revolt Against Globalism
    When the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, they surely couldn’t have imagined the effect that it would have worldwide.

    It was only shortly thereafter that Donald Trump won the U.S. Presidential election in November which sent shock waves throughout the world.

    Angela Merkel is on the hot seat in Germany, Renzi is out in Italy, and now Bloomberg reports that conservative populist Marine Le Pen is leading in France.

    Marine Le Pen is gaining support in France and has taken the lead in a major survey of voters’ intentions for the first round of the presidential election.

    The populist leader of the National Front had between 25 percent and 26 percent support compared with 23 percent to 25 percent for Republican candidate Francois Fillon, according to an Ipsos Sopra Steria poll for Cevipof and Le Monde. In mid December, Fillon led with about 28 percent and Le Pen around 25 percent.

    Since the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president on Nov. 8, the French race has been closely-watched as another crucial battle between populist and establishment forces.

    He's a decent man that farage, but his run was too early, and I suspect he too weak of stature to be a player in the EU transformation. He's a Jimmy Carter, a good man with great vision but too soft.

    One Echo – France’s Marine Le Pen Launches Presidential Campaign…
    Posted on February 6, 2017 by sundance

    A few weeks ago, January 12th, Marine Le Pen was in New York, noticed lunching in Trump Tower during a brief visit – The PING. Yesterday she officially launched her presidential campaign – The ECHO

    [​IMG]

    Le Pen blasted “two totalitarianisms” of globalization and Islamic fundamentalism during her campaign kick-off speech, and delivered a resoundingly well received nationalist speech to her National Front supporters.

    Britain’s vote to leave the European Union and U.S. President Donald Trump’s election have revealed the “awakening of the people against oligarchies” she said, while praising President Trump as a man who respects campaign promises and “acts quickly.”

    Her political opposition and liberal media critics were quick to call her campaign speech “a frightening image of France’s future”, eliciting an almost identical reaction as initially felt in U.S. media following the campaign launch of President Trump in 2015.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    “We are enslaved to the European Union and unrecognizable as French.” “France risks losing its identity if the political status quo endures”. “We are at a crossroad …. This election is a choice of civilization,” she said. Further asking whether her three children or any children of France would continue to have the rights and cultural values of the current generation; asking: “will they even speak our French language?”

    She issued a call for French voters on the left and right to join her, saying:

    […] “You have a place at our side.” “We do not want to live under the rule or threat of Islamic fundamentalism. They are looking to impose on us gender discrimination in public places, full body veils or not, prayer rooms in the workplace, prayers in the streets, huge mosques … or the submission of women.”

    5,000 people in the amphitheater and watching on big screens cheered and chanted “On est chez nous” (“We are in our land.”) Le Pen outlined a nationalist agenda laying out a pledge to call for an EU referendum within 6 months if she is successful, along with plans for France to leave the European Union, control its borders and reinstitute the French franc as the national currency.

    Marine Le Pen’s campaign slogan is: “In the Name of the People”.

    [​IMG]

    Her outlined platform would create popular referendums on any issue that gathered at least 500,000 signatures; and it would put French people first, with “national preference” enshrined in the Constitution.

    “We’ve witnessed the impoverishment of France for some years now at a cultural, economic and social level,” Billy Winkens, a 41-year-old supporter from Toule, in eastern France, said. “Today, people are hungry for change and want to drain the swamp, but in an orderly fashion, with coherence.”

    Le Pen repeated her belief “the European Union is a failure” to an audience that is increasingly recognizing the cultural values of France are being drowned in the failed sea of multiculturalism that has become the EU. “It hasn’t upheld one of its promises especially in terms of prosperity and security.” She said the EU is “historical parentheses and, hopefully, one day, just a bad memory.”

    Additionally, Le Pen outlined a plan to withdraw France from NATO’s integrated command, crack down on illegal immigration and reduce immigration to 10,000 people a year. No one living in France illegally would be issued residency documents or allowed to acquire French citizenship. She said her administration would arrange for foreigners convicted of crimes in France to serve their prison terms in their homelands. “There will be no other laws and values in France but French,” she said.

    The similarities between the European populists, and President Trump, are Superficial at best !

    On the one hand the POTUS wants to turn America back to what it was relatively few years ago, ie, a successful nation where its residents can enjoy progress according to their abilities. The Euro Whacko's also want to turn the clock back, but even the meanest knowledge of history will know where that idea is headed.

    Then there'd be the aspect that would certainly favour the USA in the event of a breakup of the EU ? Obviously in the new landscape that lies ahead of us all, the disintegration of the largest trading bloc on the planet would be advantageous to the other players. So from that perspective, the likes of LePen et al, are little more than useful idiots in what is shaping up to be a change in global trading systems.

    It'd make more sense for those who govern Euroland to face up to the new circumstances and react accordingly, instead of imagining that a Trump Administration is something that is somehow going to be a short term aberration. It'd be a good start if they simply acknowledged the failure of nearly a decade of ZIRP bizzaro world, and realised that the current wave of populism has been born of their inability to get the economic patient off the financial ventilator.

    It's as well to remember that the lunacy of ZIRP is in no way restricted to just the Euro Zone, and ultimately, its destruction rests with the place where it all started, the USA ? In that respect I hope that President Trump will be able to effect some change, but be aware, populism is a two edged sword. If President Trump fails in that endeavour, then what comes after will not please all those who are currently thinking populism to be such a good idea.

    I don't see that there's any way off the "financial ventilator". The rest of the world is following the example Japan set in the 90s and it will be every bit as successful.

    To get out of this mess central banksters and goobermint stooges would have to do the one thing they can never do...just let shit happen without trying to micromanage everything into oblivion while lying about it.

    I'm thinking the 'Only' way out of the current impasse would be a return to nation states operating their economies in a competitive manner ? Like in the old days when exports had to keep in line with imports or you had a currency crisis.

    That of course means an end to the cosy arrangement that Central Banks have taken to whereby they seem to think they're all in it together.

    Given that competitive trade is likely going to make a comeback, it makes even less sense for Europe to revert to being a collection of small nations trying to compete locally, rather than competing in the main arena ?

    I'd guess the Germans have already sensed the wind is changing, but then they never really got away from the old model of making and selling stuff. For which they get lambasted by Americans for being the strongest economy in Europe. Its pretty much the case of Germany having kept the rest of Europe floating higher than would otherwise have been the case, whilst many other EU members frolicked in what they imagined was a new world of endless wealth for doing not a lot.

    Quite where that leaves Britain is open to doubt. Probably in a dreamworld of its own making where British is still Best, and where despite wanting the reassurance of a lifeboat supplied by the USA, they still want to be able to treat Americans like naughty children :)

    Marine Le Pen Cancels Meeting with Lebanon’s Grand Mufti – Refuses to Wear Head Scarf (Video)

    Jim Hoft Feb 21st, 2017 8:57 am 195 Comments

    French National Front leader Marine Le Pen canceled her meeting with Lebanan’s grand mufti after she refused to wear a headscarf for the meeting.

    [​IMG]


    Le Pen told reporters, “You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not cover myself up.”
    Reuters reported:

    French far-right National Front presidential candidate Marine Le Pen canceled a meeting on Tuesday with Lebanon’s grand mufti, its top cleric for Sunni Muslims, after refusing to wear a headscarf for the encounter.

    Le Pen, among the frontrunners for the presidency, is using a two-day visit to Lebanon to bolster her foreign policy credentials nine weeks from the April 23 first round, and may be partly targeting potential Franco-Lebanese votes.

    Many Lebanese fled to France, Lebanon’s former colonial power, during their country’s 1975-1990 civil war and became French citizens…

    … After meeting Christian President Michel Aoun – her first public handshake with a head of state – and Sunni Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri on Monday, she had been scheduled to meet the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian.

    …”I met the grand mufti of Al-Azhar,” she told reporters, referring to a visit in 2015 to Cairo’s 1,000-year-old center of Islamic learning. “The highest Sunni authority didn’t have this requirement, but it doesn’t matter.

    “You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not cover myself up,” she said.

    I wonder whether that Mufti - if invited to the Vatican - would put a Cross around his neck, eh?

    On the other hand, if LePen was invited to visit the Pope, would she cover her head ???

    I'd guess the answer would be yes, if only because a majority of her base will be nominally Catholic.

    As for the Grand Mufti bizzo, she could simply have worn a hat or bonnet, it would have counted the same.

    Same goes for US Presidents when visiting Jewish holy places, the requirement is just to cover the head, so a good Stetson Stratoliner would do. But instead they always get stuck with a Kippah :)

    Whilst the article is a hit piece upon Ms lePen, if only part of it is right, than it does show her up to be a bullsh1tter.

    Protesters Block Le Pen Supporters Trying to Reach Rally

    SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER

    PARIS (AP) – Demonstrators in western France have tried to block buses carrying supporters of presidential candidate Marine Le Pen to a campaign rally.
    The incident Sunday in the city of Nantes came after 11 police officers were injured Saturday in skirmishes with activists opposed to Le Pen’s appearance there. No injuries were reported from Sunday’s bus protest.

    Sebastien Chenu of Le Pen’s National Front party said on BFM television that the protesters were “trying to stop us from delivering our message. We will not back down.”

    Critics allege that Le Pen’s anti-immigration, anti-establishment campaign is a cover for a racist, anti-democratic worldview.

    Recent polls suggest she could win the first round of the April-May election, but predict she would lose the ensuing runoff vote.

    I wanted to talk about La Pen, she is one sharp cookie, but now you got me thinking 'Joliet' which is also French pronounced zho LEE et

    I have been to Joliet, it was a bad MF place and the starting point of a great movie.

    Luetenent friend of mine has a rack of keys from Joliet. Big old brass spookie things from the middle ages.

    Shit when we get old it's almost impossible to stay focused on the opening subject.

    Fig it. I'm gonna watch the blues brothers again

    Great. If France comes online Trump should be able to get his head out of his orange ass and dump NATO

    How great would it be if the French elected a nationalist leader?

    Maybe they could pay us back.

    Only candidate who can prevent France from becoming Frankistan - under the orders of the International Banksters... Hence all the "negative media", and "skewed polls"...

    Same story for Gert Wilders in Holland, coming up soon too.

    UPDATE: French Election – Results and Discussion Thread – Marine Le Pen Wins First Round…
    Posted on April 23, 2017 by sundance

    All eyes are on the French Presidential Election (Round #1) being held today. There are multiple candidates but only the top two go to round #2. Most predictions have Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron as the top two candidates.

    [​IMG]UPDATE: 5:30pm EDT Surprising most of the liberal punditry, and contradicting most of the earlier exit polls, Marine Le Pen has won the first round over her closest rival Emmanuel Macron (link):

    [​IMG]Francios Fillon conceded and endorsed the political establishment favorite Macron. Melenchon has refused to endorse anyone. As expected the national runoff will be:

    Marine Le Pen -vs- Emmanuel Macron

    Now it drops to only Le Pen and Macron.

    So, how much of the other 44% represented by Fillon, Melenchon and Hamon, will go Le Pen's way?

    Not enough, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Front_(France) scroll to the bottom and review Daddy LePen's results when he made it to the run off.

    She'll be lucky to get 40% of the total in 2 weeks time.

    Ya never know my friend, what will happen between now and then. The world is more volatile now than it's been since before WWII and a single event can trigger a global change in everything

    I'd almost be prepared to bet the farm on what happens next. As I've said here before, parties like the FN, and UKIP have the uncanny ability to be able to unite the vote against them, as no doubt we'll see in a couple of weeks.

    As for the world being volatile, I'll wager that it'd be even more volatile were it not for most of Europe being confederated in the EU ?
    Indeed its almost certainly the case that such volatility as is promoted, North Korea, Syria, and the Ukraine, is largely bogus. I cant see either the USA, China, or Europe wanting to get into a regular shooting war over what are no more than insignificant toilets.

    Be interesting to see what happens in 5 years time. If the PTB are still running the ZIRP gig, and the guy on the Paris omnibus feels impoverished further, then its for sure that LePen will still be about and more likely to sell her bill of goods. Be nice to assume that President Trump will start some global impetus towards the return of Capitalism, in which case the Demagogues will be back to sniffing round for what few votes they can get. We'll have to see :)

    It looks that way, what will be interesting is if the "Trump Dummy" comes into play... people polled one way and voted the other just due to social pressures in the lead up to the election. She may have larger closet support than the pollsters are detecting. I guess it really depends which way the old main stream voters are leaning. It still could surprise.

    They will be in need of a diversion if the wheels come off this economic wagon, something to blame other than them. War is a good old stand by.

    Agreed. I'm amazed how they've managed to keep the wheels on for so long.

    Waiting for a new government to reverse the excesses of the current government so rarely ever works. What does work though is when people rise up and protest against the CURRENT government and force them to change. We have seen that work over and over again. The truckers strikes in England years back: the Australia Card revolt back in the 1980's.

    But as for Le Pen, she has 3 innate weaknesses
    1/ She is french, so a gutless turncoat by birth.
    2/ She is a woman, so easily manipulated by men in power
    3/ She is a polititian, so a dirtbag from the very outset.

    Good luck France. You're gonna need it.

    Le Pen was the ONLY candidate to offer referendums on important topics throughout her 5 year tenure - votes that she pledged to respect.
    A TRUE "participative and representative democracy" - ever heard of that?

    ALL the other candidates would rule through the French version of "executive order", ie "49-3" procedure.

    Whereas Macron will continue to be a lackey to the Banksters-Without-Borders, Brussels branch. A former "employee at Rothschild Bank" (only a $million or 2 a year), as "Private Secretary to newly elected President Hollande in 2012" for two years, his job was most likely to "pass on the orders" from the (non-elected) "Commissars" in Brussels. Then in June 2014 he was "invited" to the Bilderberg Meeting. Less than 3 weeks later, he was appointed Finance Minister of France... until last summer, when out of the blue, he "invented" a "new" Political Party, out of thin air. Henceforth, he was on the Front Cover of EVERY magazine, weekly... Articles never delving into his (non-existant) program (aside from "more of the same, but worse") - but raving on how he married his sweetheart from his teen years (his teacher, almost 20 years his elder... relationship starting at age 16... but never a mention of "pedophelia")... No investigating the rumors of his being a "closet gay" either.

    Banksters' Choice, and promoted like a "Brand New Detergent"... Went to Algeria and spoke of how "guilty" previous administrations had been with their treatment of their Colonies (thus garnering the votes of the 10% so so-called "French" Muslims (most of whom keep their dual citizenship).

    And made out to seem "a nice guy, with everybody's interests at heart" - while he is nothing but a TOOL...

    Oh, and no investigation into his evading taxes... $3 million in income just "disappeared"?
    And who needs to "fund a campaign", when the Media is doing it for you for free (until you're in office and have to "pay up"...)

    ----

    Add to that all the "bad-mouthing" against Marine Le Pen (read any of Fanakipan's posts to get the "party line")... the "shutting down" of over 30,000 high readership Facebook accounts of Marine supporters (hey, it isn't Russia interfering with the electoral process, but the USA - surprised?).

    ---

    So, the polls give "Detergent Macron" at least 60-40 against Marine at the run-off.

    It's going to stick in the craw of the "traditional right" (Fillon voters) to vote for him, since he was a "pillar" of Socialist Hollande's government... and is just going to "shuffle taxes".

    It's going to stick in the craw of the "far left anti-capitalists" (Melanchon supporters) to vote for him, just to "block" Marine from winning.

    Some of each of the above groups might vote for Marine. As well as people who voted for "Sovereignty" - anti-NATO, anti-Brussels, anti-Banksters... spread out between Dupont-Aignan, Asselineau, Cheminade (but all together, they don't represent 10% of the 1st round results.)

    So it looks like the Bilderberg Annointed Candidate will most likely get the cake, and eat it too.

    Ah, and he'll support so-called "free trade", which will finish killing off French agriculture & food production. There's no way that a "family business" making UNIQUE cheeses for centuries can compete with the 1/4 price "dumping" of Wisconsin mass-produced "cheese product"... And so on.

    Oh, and he's pro "mass-immigration", to further bust down wages (which benefits the Multinational Corporations), while the CITIZEN TAXPAYERS foot the bill for their lodging, health insurance, food, language training, job training... for the (few) that will eventually hold jobs, while their whole imported family tribe lives off CITIZEN TAXPAYER funding.

    Farewell France, the Nation. Welcome Frankistan, EU Province.

    ......

    And Fanakapan - take off your "mask" - the hypocrisy is too apparent.

    3 days before the vote, another Muslim Fanatic shot a machine gun on the most famous Avenue in Paris, killing one Police (Traffic) Officer, wounding 2 others, as well as a "female foreign tourist". The following day, more Muslims planning an attack were arrested with 40 pounds of explosives... But EVEN SO, the French Molluscs are voting for the Bilderberg-Annointed pro-Muslim-Invasion candidate - with all the "free advertising in the world" - Front Cover on EVERY magazine for MONTHS... (And Macron belongs to the band of politicians who have been telling the French that "they have to become accustomed to attacks"... in a land where ONLY the "bad guys" can carry weapons. You can't even shoot night-time home invaders without going to trial AND JAIL, for not "handing everything over, and waiting for them to leave (hopefully leaving you "unharmed") and then calling 911... who show up an hour later...

    Ah, and the Media has done wonders in France over the past 10-20 years... and turned it into a US-style "media"... with their own "Kardashians" and "Sports Celebrities" with every detail on their lives... while leaving the public in the dark about "what's going on behind the curtain" in the finacial-political world... and going the "PC" way each time... Anybody contradicting the "official version" is a "conspiracy theorist", a "holocaust deniar", a "climat-change denier", a "xenophobe", a "racist".

    It DOES sink into feeble minds, accustomed to being force-fed slop...

    I miss George. He knew it was over long before we realized it. All this crap is closing the barn door after the horses have left. Le Pen isn't going to be any more effective than Trump. Lots of good quick hits but nothing that will shake the foundation of TPTB's firm grip on the world.
