Still Waiting in Vain for Victoria Nuland to Join French Protests With Cookies

from Russia Insider:

“Today, Emmanuel Macron, 40, the former Rothschild investment banker known as “president of the rich” by his countrymen, is facing the prospect of an early political demise, no less than Viktor Yanukovich faced in 2014”

Unlike the 2014 Ukraine uprising, which witnessed invasive meddling on the part of US politicians and diplomats, Western support for the French Yellow Vest protests has been conspicuously missing in action.

In Just 2 Years, US Debt Grew The Size Of The Entire Brazilian Economy

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

In a mere two years, the United States debt has massively grown.  In fact, the amount of debt the US incurred equaled the size of the entire Brazilian economy.

U.S. government debt is on track this year to rise at the fastest pace since 2012,reported the Los Angeles Times.  The strong yet quickly weakening economy is failing to keep pace with the wave of red ink that’s rising under the Trump administration and there appears to be no end to the spending in sight.

French Yellow Vest Protests Spread Through Europe To Belgium And The Netherlands

by Robert Wheeler, The Organic Prepper:

Editor’s Note: When I watch the Yellow Vest protests in France, and now in other parts of Europe, I can’t help but wonder if this is where we, too, are headed here in the United States. Between widespread political divisiveness and an economy that is truly suffering – despite what you see on the news – people here are also fed up. Is it only a matter of time before people in the US take to the streets by the hundreds of thousands and say, “Enough?” It’s truly essential to watch what’s going on in Europe to get a glimpse at our potential future – and to prepare for it. ~ Daisy

As protests continue to rage in France, discontent is festering elsewhere in Europe at the same time. What began as a routine protest deep in Paris has swelled to over a hundred thousand people and approximately five locations throughout the country. Anger over yet another eco-fascist “gas tax” seems to have been the straw that finally broke the camel’s back.

‘Yellow Vest’ pro-Brexit protesters block Westminster Bridge

0

from RT:

Pro-Brexit activists, wearing yellow vests similar to those worn in recent protests in France, have blocked London’s Westminster Bridge, briefly bringing traffic to a standstill.

Passersby tweeted content from the bridge, showing several dozen protesters sitting in front of traffic, chanting: ‘Brexit now’ and singing ‘Rule Britannia’. Several protesters were seen waving the Union Jack flag, while others were wearing clothing with pro-Donald Trump insignia.

Congress Hid Illegal Legislation in Farm Bill to Further Support Horrific Genocide in Yemen & It Passed

from Freedom OutPost:

Hiding the provision in a Farm Bill, the House passed an insidious piece of legislation that will facilitate perpetual war and genocide in Yemen.

Yesterday, Congress violated the Constitution and the War Powers Act by voting to block and further moves by Congress, to withdraw U.S. forces from the wholesale slaughter and genocide currently taking place in Yemen. This move was done using the Farm Bill.

Many Americans are wondering what, exactly, a Farm Bill has to do with genocide in Yemen. The answer to that question is absolutely nothing. However, it does make for a good hiding place for insidious and illegal legislation, which is why the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 contained a section which removed the application of the War Powers Resolution.

Thursday Conversation – Brandon Smith

by Turd Ferguson, TF Metals Report:

I’ve been an admirer of Brandon Smith since about the time we stared TFMR in 2010. And now finally, in 2018, we get a chance to visit.

This is mainly a discussion of three things:

How the world got into this position
What is going on at present
The road ahead

But perhaps most importantly, Brandon shares what we should all be doing in preparation for “The Reset”, or whatever is coming in 2019 and beyond. And it’s not all just the financial stuff that we discuss here at TFMR on a daily basis. It’s personal preparation. Can your work sustain yourself and your family? How well do you know your neighbors? Is your community prepared for what’s to come? These questions are just as important to answer so I was glad to hear Brandon discuss them today.

In the second half, Max interviews Roy Sebag of Mene.com about the de-dollarization of the world economy which has already begun and why everyone will soon realize that all fiat currencies are just pieces of paper backed by a printing press on fire.

FRENCH GENERALS ACCUSE MACRON OF “TREASON” OVER UN MIGRATION PACT

by Paul Joseph Watson, InfoWars:

Open letter says French citizens have another reason to “revolt”

A group of French military generals have written an open letter to Emmanuel Macron accusing the French President of committing “treason” by signing the UN migration pact.

The pact, which was signed by 164 nations on Monday, including France, is not legally binding but greases the skids for unlimited migration to be treated as a human right and criticism of mass migration to be treated as hate speech.

Despite Macron’s TV Mea Culpa, France Set for Showdown

by Finian Cunningham, Strategic Culture:

Despite a televised appearance of humility and sympathy, French President Emmanuel Macron seems to have failed to quell the mood of national anger over wide-ranging economic grievances.

The capital Paris and other major French cities are thus set to see the fifth consecutive weekend of protests – or “Act Five” as the demonstrators are saying.

Nearly 24 hours after Macron’s TV address, a gunman killed three people and injured dozens others in the eastern city of Strasbourg, prompting French authorities to declare a state of emergency. The heightened tensions across France with maximum security forces deployed come as protest marches are planned for this weekend against Macron’s government.

THE WALLS ARE CLOSING IN

from SGTreport:

The walls are closing in on the Clintons, and that’s not “fake news”, it’s a fact. Corey Lynn from CoreyDiggs.com joins me to discuss the swamp in Arkansas, home of the Clinton crime family – and many deep state criminals who are being investigated, arrested and sentenced to prison terms.

The End of France as We Know It?

by Tom Luongo, Tom Luongo:

When an event grabs headlines like the protests in France have I temper my reactions to it.  I didn’t give the Yellow Vest protests much thought at first wanting to see where they would lead.

Protests like this and even bigger ones like Catalonian independence are invariably betrayed by the European political establishment.  They become an excuse to move towards tighter control — more cops, more surveillance, crackdowns on free speech, etc.

So, sometimes it’s hard to separate the manufactured reality show from the spontaneous uprising of human frustration.
