The Real Significance Of The French Tax Revolt

by Peter C. Earle, via Alt Market:

The gilets jaunes (Yellow Jacket) anti-tax riots in France escalated over the past weekend, again citing the impact of higher taxes on fossil fuels – and high levels of taxation in general – on everyday life. French citizens, already subject to the highest taxes in the OECD, are being crushed by both new and systematically increasing taxes, and have taken to the streets by the hundreds of thousands in a “citizen’s revolution”. Recommendations to declare a state of emergency have for the time being been tabled.

With no sense of irony whatsoever, in a press conference on Saturday French President Emmanuel Macron stated: “I will never accept violence.”

My inbox has been veritably flooded with so many different versions of this story, I don’t know where to begin, other than to say thank you to all of you who drew it to my attention. The story has now rippled around the word from its point of origin – Madagascar – to the antipodes and back again more times than the seismic waves themselves. But this story is truly strange, and since we’re into “strange stuff” on this website, as one might imagine, I have some of our trademark “high octane speculation” to offer, but first, here’s one version of the story:

Meet The Saudi “Hit Squad” That Murdered Jamal Khashoggi

from ZeroHedge:

Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman achieved a symbolic victory in his struggle to survive the diplomatic fallout from murder of Saudi citizen and dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi: He met with members of Khashoggi’s family, including his young son, who is not allowed to leave Saudi Arabia, and even managed to take advantage of a photo-op with Khashoggi’s young son, who has been barred from leaving the country, per Reuters.

Documents Reveal How Monsanto & The EPA Bury Cancer Research

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:Multiple documents have emerged over the years showing the corruption that plagues Monsanto. In this case, they colluded with the EPA to stifle cancer research and any connections to their product.
  • Reflect On:With so many examples and info available on the concerns that Roundup herbicide brings to the table, why is the US and Canada in the small majority of countries that accept these products and deem them safe, despite evidence showing the opposite?

The Guardian’s Reputation In Tatters After Forger Revealed To Have Co-Authored Assange Smear

by Elizabeth Vos, Disobedient Media:

Regular followers of WikiLeaks-related news are at this point familiar with the multiple serious infractions of journalistic ethics by Luke Harding and the Guardian, especially (though not exclusively) when it comes to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. However, another individual at the heart of this matter is far less familiar to the public. That man is Fernando Villavicencio, a prominent Ecuadorian political activist and journalist, director of the USAID-funded NGO Fundamedios and editor of online publication FocusEcuador.

10 Ways President Trump Can ‘Red Pill The Masses’ In America And Why It’s More Important Now Than Ever To Prepare For The Inevitable: ‘The End Of Normalcy Is Here’

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

On November 30th we published this story on ANP within which we reported we’d soon be putting out a story outlining a number of different ways that President Trump could ‘red pill‘ the masses and awaken tens of millions to ‘reality‘ and ‘deep state tyranny and crimes‘ against the American people so here we are today.

With the end of what many of us have long considered ‘normalcy‘ now here, this story will take a look at 10 different topics (some with numerous subtopics) that outline and detail for us some of the ways that the American people have been lied to over the years by the ‘deep state‘ and mainstream media and while the msm will surely call a story like this ‘fake news‘, those who’ve long been paying attention know that much of what is going on behind the scenes has long been covered up.

Anti-Globalist Fury Is Driving the French Protests – It’s a Real Revolution (Steve Turley)

from Russia Insider:

Another great analysis from Turley, and you won’t hear this in the mainstream media, because they ARE the globalists.

Turley argues that there is a massive secular shift occurring world-wide which is dumping the globalist agenda.

In Europe it has hit England (Brexit), Italy, Spain, Germany, Holland, Poland, Hungary, Russia, just about everyone. France bucked the trend by electing Macron, whom CNN described a few days ago as ‘the new moral leader of the liberal world order’. Well, that didn’t last long.

French Gov’s ‘Tone Deaf’ Response Isn’t ‘Concrete Measures’ Yellow Vests Want

from Sputnik News:

On Tuesday, the French government blinked: under intense pressure from the Gilets Jaunes protests – the “Yellow Vests” demonstrating in the streets of French cities for weeks – Prime Minister Edouard Philippe declared a six-month moratorium on the fuel tax increase and froze electricity and gas price hikes for three months.

“Three fiscal measures were to enter force on 1 January next year… Having heard this demand expressed by almost all of the interlocutors I have met throughout consultations in recent days, I am suspending for six months these fiscal measures,” Philippe said before the National Assembly in Paris on Tuesday, Sputnik reported.

Social planners forcibly restricting how many children others could have

Say what you will about the climate policy discussions at Vox, but they don’t mince words.

They come right out and tell you how much they want to micromanage every last detail of your life. Vox’s resident expert, David Roberts, recently interviewed policy wonk and author Hal Harvey, to discuss which areas of society government should regulate in the name of slowing climate change. Everything was on the table—ranging from building codes to auto fuel efficiency to diet to family size—with the only debate being over the relative results from the various interventions.

Denmark Plans To Isolate Unwanted Migrants: ‘They Are Unwanted…And They Will Feel That’

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

Denmark has plans to isolate all unwanted migrants on an island. The country’s immigration minister, Inger Stojberg, said about a government plan to house unwelcome foreigners on a remote island, that “they are unwanted in Denmark, and they will feel that.”

As if to make the message even more clear, one of the two ferries that serve the island that will house unwanted migrants is called the Virus. “They [migrants] are unwanted in Denmark, and they will feel that,” the immigration minister, Inger Stojberg, wrote on Facebook, according to The New York Times.
