Macron forced to back down over pension reform amidst raging protests

by Alex Christoforou, The Duran:

Once again the French have shown the world now to protest, and that protesting works. President Emmanuel Macron was forced to roll back his plans for pensions reform over the weekend as demonstrators took to the streets on Saturday in what was entering a second month of social unrest. Paris had come to a standstill over the festive season; trains, including the metro had ground to a halt, save a couple of main lines during peak times, as commuters and shoppers stayed at home.

Iran Opens Fire On Demonstrators. Protesters Chant: ‘Our Enemy Is Right Here; They Lie To Us That It’s America’

by Ryan Saavedra, Daily Wire:

The Iranian government opened fire with live ammunition against demonstrators who were protesting the Islamic regime for shooting down a Ukrainian passenger plane last week and lying about it for days.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), which is a designated terrorist organization, shot down the plane late on Tuesday night after firing numerous missiles at U.S. forces in Iraq.

“For the first three days after the crash, Iran denied growing international accusations that it had shot the plane down, and looked as if it was engaged in a cover-up,” The New York Times reported. “The Iranian authorities insisted that the jetliner had gone down for mechanical reasons, and refused to cooperate with investigators. They also began to remove some evidence from the scene.”

“You Killed Our Geniuses” – Regime Crackdown Intensifies As Iranians Flood Streets In Third Day Of Protest

from ZeroHedge:

Despite an aggressive crackdown by the Iranian regime that reportedly included soldiers and riot police firing into crowds of civilians – in open defiance of President Trump’s warning to Tehran not to “kill your protesters” – anti-government protests over Iran’s mistaken shoot-down of UIA Flight 752 continued on Monday for a third straight day, following the regime’s admission of responsibility on Saturday.

During the protests, which erupted out of anger over the regime’s initial lies about Flight 752 (it initially insisted that a “mechanical error” was responsible despite video evidence suggesting a missile strike), Iranian security forces fired both live ammunition and tear gas into crowds of angry demonstrators.

“Death To Liars!” Iran Swept By Wave Of Protests Demanding Ayatollah Quit Over Airplane Downing

from ZeroHedge:

Mass protests have again broken out in Iran at the end of a chaotic week for the country, capped by the early Saturday admission and apology for the military accidentally shooting down a Ukrainian passenger plane, killing all 176 people on board.

Additionally, it appears that the British ambassador in Tehran, Rob Macaire, was arrested shortly after photographing the protests. Iranian state sources are alleging he was helping to “organize” and incite the protests.

The UK ambassador to Iran Rob Macaire has been arrested during the protests in Tehran on Saturday, Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency reported.

Macaire was present during the Saturday protests in front of Tehran’s Amir Kabir University and was arrested then, Tasnim’s report said.

We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage,” Trump wrote both in English and Farsi, addressing the protesters in Iran.

Wildfire Jihad: Muslims in Australia Among Nearly 200 Arsonists Who Set Fires

by Dean Garrison, DC Clothesline:

We will have to wait to see, and may never know, how many Muslims are among the arsonists who set fires to contribute to Aussie wildfires.

Authorities in Australia have arrested close to 200 people for deliberately starting the bushfires that have devastated the country, yet the media and celebrities continue to blame “climate change” for the disaster.

We might not know the makeup of all of the arsonists, but we do know that some were Muslim and we know that this is taken right from the Muslim playbook.

Rotten fruit of Europe’s open-door policy: New Year’s Eve riot in EU capital Brussels

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

For some time now, Fellowship of the Minds hasn’t posted much on Muslim shenanigans in Europe, but that doesn’t mean all is peaceful and quiet.

Here’s a recent whopper of an incident when some 50-60,000 people took part in the New Year celebrations at the Atomium, a landmark building in Brussels, originally constructed for the 1958 Brussels World Expo. Brussels is the capital of Belgium and the de facto capital of the European Union (EU).

Social Disruption Contours

by Corey Lynn, Corey’s Digs:

The world is swirling in a tornado of social disruption, creating waves of cognitive dissonance through endless minds. The confusion in the masses is palpable. George Soros must be pleased. The mind knows the reality, or at least it thinks it does. Each street corner speaks a different message, every television channel ­spins a different web, every voice utters words of chaos. Where are your thoughts safe from impeding dissonance? In the privacy of your own home, or does the family all speak in different tones?

Hezbollah To Be Unleashed Inside America? We Are Being Warned That Sleeper Cells “Can Hit Targets On U.S. Soil At Anytime Without Warning”

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

There has never been a greater threat of terror attacks on U.S. soil than there is right now.  In the aftermath of the killing of Iranian military chief Qassem Soleimani, top Iranian leaders are vowing revenge.  Many of the talking heads on television are speculating that Iran may hit American targets in the Middle East, but what they are forgetting is that Iranian-backed terror groups already have a substantial presence in North America.  In particular, Hezbollah has been involved in the North American drug trade for a very long time.  Over the years, the mainstream media gave Al-Qaeda and ISIS a lot of attention, but the truth is that Hezbollah is far better funded and far better armed than either of those groups ever were, and now the man at the top of the military food chain that gave Hezbollah their marching orders has been killed by the United States.  If Hezbollah sleeper cells are ever going to be unleashed in the United States, now is the time when it will happen.

Gun, ammunition sales skyrocketing in Virginia as citizens arm up in anticipation of tyrannical gun confiscation efforts by insane, deranged Democrats

by JD Heyes, Natural News:

As much as Democrats hate guns, gun rights and the Second Amendment, they are the best marketers and sellers of firearms and firearms accessories around.

When Barack Obama was president, every time he brought up new control measures like an “assault weapons ban,” sales of those weapons would blast upward. That led some of us to believe that Obama, secretly, owned stock in American firearms makers.

Well, guns and ammo are selling like crazy again, this time in the state of Virginia and for a far more serious reason: Citizens there appear to be arming up for possible conflict with authorities.

Thanks Obama!!! How American Tax Dollars AGAIN Financed the Attack of Our Own Embassy

by Dean Garrison, DC Clothesline:

Crazy Uncle Joe claims there were absolutely no scandals with he and Barry at the helm.

There certainly are plenty now Joe, as if there weren’t before.

It turns out that American tax dollars likely financed the attack on our own embassy in Baghdad.
