SILVER-BULLET-650.jpg

He's already falling in the polls, and there have been rumors of a "silver bullet" that would take him out

 

Le Pen closes gap in latest poll...

 

...he is accused of taking victory for granted

  • Macron is predicted to win 59 per cent of the votes on May 7, down four per cent
  • Le Pen is still the underdog of the election, but is enjoying greater support
  • On Wednesday, Le Pen upstaged Macron's visit to a Whirlpool factory in Amiens

. . .

Macron is still predicted a win on May 7, but his share of the vote could be 59 per cent, down four points, according to an Odoxa survey.

Marine Le Pen is on 41 per cent, up four points from earlier in the week.

Patrick Le Brun is a writer and activist who has written many articles for Counter-Currents. He has extensive experience with the French Identitarian movement. Patrick is currently based in the United States, where he mentors college students who wish to engage in activism.

Patrick returns to Red Ice to shed some light on the first round results of the French presidential election. We mull over various aspects of the election, including the historically low support for the Socialist party. Patrick explains the National Front’s newfound success, and why this party, despite finding itself vilified by the establishment media, is doing so well with workers and young people. Our show covers many more aspects of French politics, including how Emmanuel Macron’s strategy leaves an opening for Le Pen to win.

It blows my mind that anybody saying that could make it past the 1st round. But too many people are hopelessly brainwased and easy to manipulate. That hey've presented Macron as the 'anti-establishment' candidate shows how stupid they think people are, he worked for Rothschild bank FFS. They're rubbing people's noses in it at this point.

 

The 20+ terror attacks in France since '15 should be the wake up call that people need, but it's looking likely the French are going to vote for 5 more years of chaos. Except it's going to get a lot worse.

 

The plus side is that win or lose, MLP has large support rather than being a fringe candidateso at least larger numbers of people are seemingly waking up.

Angela Merkel 'clashed with Emmanuel Macron over Greek debt deal' new book claims

29 April 2017

Emmanuel Macron, the man widely expected to be the next French president, tried to help Greece avoid crippling austerity measures but was frozen out of negotiations by Germany's Angela Merkel, the Sunday Telegraph can reveal.

The confrontation at the height of the 2015 Greek debt crisis is revealed in “Adults in the Room”, the new memoir of Yanis Varoufakis, the controversial former Greek finance minister who tried - but failed - to win debt relief for Greece.

Mr Macron, an ardent pro-European, formed a strong bond with Mr Varoufakis, making clear that he believed that the crippling austerity being inflicted on Greece in return for bailouts could lead to the ultimate destruction of the Eurozone.

On June 28 2015, with Greece’s bank on the cusp of closure, Mr Varoufakis writes that he received a text from Mr Macron offering to broker a last-minute deal to win debt-relief for Greece in return for structural reforms.

 

“I do not want my generation to be the one responsible for Greece exiting Europe,” Mr Macron wrote, offering to broker a meeting between the Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras and President Francois Hollande.

The attempt, however, was blocked by Germany whose ultra-hawkish finance minister Wolfgang Schaueble was suggesting that Greece take a 'holiday' from membership of the euro.

. . .

“Merkel had heard him and, according to Emmanuel, ordered Hollande to keep Macron out of the Greek negotiations,” writes Mr Varoufakis. “Merkel’s spell was every bit as powerful as I had imagined.”

FINAL WEEK: Macron plummets in polls...

Le Pen on the attack...

 

Recent moves by Ms Le Pen to appeal to a wider audience seem to be working as she has removed herself as the leader of the Front National party, and rebranded her campaign with the new motto “Choose France”.

Pollster Harris Interactive, who correctly predicted the result of the first round, revealed a six points slip by Mr Macron since last Sunday.

“Mozart of finance” ? Or a brain-controlled Robot?

 

RdTD8fI.png

 

When Emmanuel Macron told friends in 2008 he was joining Rothschild, the prestigious investment bank, the then 30-year-old civil servant was warned it could scupper a future career in politics.

 

You’re conscious that banking is not any kind of job? And Rothschild not any kind of bank?” said one friend to the man who, nine years later, would become frontrunner in France’s presidential election. Mr Macron shrugged off the warnings and learnt the ropes of debt restructuring and mergers and acquisitions, earning €2.9m and a nickname — “the Mozart of finance” — for his role advising Nestlé on its $12bn acquisition of a unit of Pfizer in 2012. At Rothschild he found himself at the heart of French business intrigues, acquiring the codes and jargon of a world where careers largely depend on having attended the right elite university. Now, with France still scarred by the global financial crisis, Mr Macron’s four-year investment banking stint has made him an easy target for rivals in a presidential contest fraught with scandals and populist jabs.

"You manipulate their anger, Mde Le Pen. They deserve better."

 

The two remaining contenders for the French presidency, centrist Emmanuel Macron and far-right candidate Marine Le Pen, on Wednesday battled it out on live TV one last time before Sunday’s nail-biting run-off vote. FRANCE 24 captured the key moments.

  • Wednesday night’s debate kicked off with Le Pen calling Macron a “smirking banker”. Macron responded by accusing his rival of being a liar, setting the tone for a pugnacious debate.
  • The first hour of the debate was dominated by economic issues, including policies to tackle unemployment, budget deficits and revamping the economy.
  • On national security, Le Pen accused Macron of lacking a plan to tackle Islamist fundamentalism. Macron said his rival’s security plan would divide France, thereby fulfilling the goals of the terrorists.
  • The second half of the 2.5-hour-long debate focused on international policies, including the European Union, the euro, and France’s place in the world.
  • While Le Pen accused Macron of being German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s lapdog, saying “in any case, France will be run by a woman: Me or Madame Merkel,” Macron accused Le Pen of fear-mongering and challenged her stance on the euro, because “a big company cannot pay in euros on one hand and pay its employees in francs on the other”.
  • 63 percent of people surveyed by Elabe pollsters for BFM TV found Macron more convincing in the debate than Le Pen.

FINALE: DEBATE DELUXE IN FRANCE VOTE...
HEATED...
LE PEN TO MACRON: Country Will Be Led By a Woman, Me or Mrs. Merkel...
Bardot: No Emmanuel!
Idyllic French villages turn far right...

 

The French film icon Brigitte Bardot has urged her fellow countrymen not to vote for Emmanuel Macron in France’s presidential election on Sunday, saying you can see his lack of compassion in “the coldness of his steel eyes”.

The animal rights campaigner tweeted to her followers that they should not vote Macron, fearing the situation for animals would deteriorate under his presidency.

Video
Marine Le Pen is gaining on Emmanuel Macron

“The contempt he gives to animal suffering can be seen in the total lack of empathy reflected in the coldness of his steel eyes

. . .

Acknowledged as a symbol of woman’s liberation, Bardot told Le Figaro she was against the Muslim face veil.

“Communitarianism takes on too much importance. It is the culmination of thirty years of laxity.”

She is also a vocal opponent of Muslim halal slaughter, which often involves slaughtering an animal without stunning it, causing pain and distress before death.

Regarded as a free speech activist, the 82-year-old actress has faced trial five times between 1997 and 2008 for “inciting racial hatred” including for comments criticising mass Muslim immigration in France.

On one of these occasions, she was convicted for “decrying the loss of French identity and tradition due to the ‘multiplication of mosques while our church bells fall silent for want of priests’”.

A search for a Silver Bullet?

 

Macron's French presidential campaign emails leaked online

French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron's campaign said on Friday it had been the target of a "massive" computer hack that dumped its campaign mails online 1-1/2 days before voters go to the polls to choose between the centrist and his far-right rival Marine Le Pen.

 

Some nine gigabytes of data were posted by a user called EMLEAKS to Pastebin, a document-sharing site that allows anonymous posting. It was not immediately clear who was responsible for posting the data or if any of it was genuine.

In a statement, Macron's political movement En Marche! (Onwards!) confirmed that it had been hacked.

 

"The En Marche! Movement has been the victim of a massive and co-ordinated hack this evening which has given rise to the diffusion on social media of various internal information," the statement said.

 

An interior ministry official declined to comment, citing French rules which forbid any commentary liable to influence an election, and which took effect at midnight French time on Friday (2200 GMT).

Comments about the email dump began to appear on Friday evening just hours before the official ban on campaigning began. The ban is due to stay in place until the last polling stations close on Sunday at 8 p.m. (1800 GMT).

 

Opinion polls show independent centrist Macron is set to beat National Front candidate Le Pen in Sunday's second round of voting, in what is seen to be France's most important election in decades. The latest surveys show him winning with about 62 percent of the vote.

Former economy minister Macron's team has complained in the past about attempts to hack its emails during a fraught campaign, blaming Russian interests in part for the cyber attacks.

On April 26, the team said it had been the target of a series of attempts to steal email credentials since January, but that the perpetrators had so far failed to compromise any campaign data.

France Chooses a Leader, and Takes a Step Into the Unknown

 

PARIS — France’s presidential election on Sunday has already broken all kinds of barriers in a country whose politics seemed frozen for decades. The two candidates are outsiders. The political establishment has been elbowed aside. The tone of the race between the insurgents has shocked many for its raw anger and insolence.

Then, barely an hour before the official close of campaigning at midnight Friday, the staff of the presumed front-runner, Emmanuel Macron, a 39-year-old former investment banker, announced that his campaign had been the target of a “massive and coordinated” hacking operation.

 

Internal emails and other documents, some real, some fake, according to the campaign, were posted on 4chan, an online message board favored by white nationalists, in an apparent effort to aid his rival, Marine Le Pen, 48, the far-right leader.

Saturday was a surreal day in France. The dramatic timing of the leaks, coming just as French law mandated a 44-hour media blackout before and during Sunday’s critical presidential runoff, jolted the final hours of the race.

 

Government officials warned that there could be charges filed against those who violated the law. The French media largely observed the blackout, offering little about the content of the hacking, which so far appeared to involve mostly mundane exchanges.

Le Monde, the influential daily newspaper, posted a note explaining to readers that it had obtained the leaked documents but would not be publishing any of them before the vote, saying that they had been released “with the clear goal of harming the validity of the ballot.”

But the hacking attack succeeded in sowing still more confusion in a race that was already among the most unpredictable in memory. Even before the last-minute attempt at sabotage, the election represented a big step into the political unknown for France — the first time in more than 50 years that neither of the establishment parties will be represented in the final round.

Bullet missed the target

MACRON LANDSLIDE!
YOUNGEST PRESIDENT EVER
'NAPOLEON' IN MAKE-UP

 

 

Paris (AFP) - Pro-European centrist Emmanuel Macron resoundingly won France's landmark presidential election, first estimates showed Sunday, heading off a fierce challenge from the far-right in a pivotal vote for the future of the divided country and Europe.

The victory caps an extraordinary rise for the 39-year-old former investment banker, who will become the country's youngest-ever leader.

He has promised to heal a fractured and demoralised country after a vicious campaign that has exposed deep economic and social divisions, as well as tensions around identity and immigration.

Initial estimates showed Macron winning between 65.5 percent and 66.1 percent of ballots ahead of Le Pen on between 33.9 percent and 34.5 percent.

Unknown three years ago, Macron is now poised to become one of Europe's most powerful leaders, bringing with him a hugely ambitious agenda of political and economic reform for France and the European Union.

The result will resonate worldwide and particularly in Brussels and Berlin where leaders will breathe a sigh of relief that Le Pen's anti-EU, anti-globalisation programme has been defeated.

After Britain's vote last year to leave the EU and Donald Trump's victory in the US, the French election had been widely watched as a test of how high a tide of right-wing nationalism would rise.

Le Pen, 48, had portrayed the ballot as a contest between Macron and the "globalists" -- in favour of open trade, immigration and shared sovereignty -- and her "patriotic" vision of strong borders and national identities.
