Well the Netherlands general election didn't deliver and all eyes have turned to France.

Le Pen has framed the election a referendum on globalism or nationalism.

This sounds like an apt description considering it is expected Le Pen will win the first round and compete in the second round with Emmanuel Macron, a Rothschild banker and former Socialist party member (until it became toxic to be associate with the current president of France — François Hollande).

Macron supports the EU and continued mass immigration from non-EU countries. On Algerian TV recently, he spoke of his desire to build a bridge' between France and its former colony. His remarks drew controversy when he said France's history in Algeria was a "crime against humanity."

One unusual fact about Macron is that he is married to Brigitte Trogneux, who is 24 years older than him and was his teacher in his high school. French people are used to candidates with colourful sex lives so this isn't likely to affect his vote share.


Macron with his wife, Brigitte Trogneux who is 24 years his senior and his former school teacher.

Macron has been heavily promoted by the establishment and Theresa May invited him to no. 10 two weeks ago. She has not invited Le Pen.

Today LBC aired what will probably be the fairest interview with Le Pen.

Her interviewer was Nigel Farage:

He still looks like a schoolboy.

I love the way Marine always speaks French - even though she can probably speak English. She refuses to concede even that much to Globalism.

The French Anti-Revolution

Louis Lalande
524 words


While Marine Le Pen could be said to be more “liberal” than her father, Jean-Marie, she is still undeniably the key figure in relation to the destruction of the European Union. It would be more powerful than Brexit, and infinitely more powerful than Trump. This is not because there will be endless memes about it (although there may well be), and not because Leftists globally will have a mental breakdown on a scale equivalent to their response to Trump, but because it could open the gates for the older, traditionalist factions of the Front National to rise up and either push her towards their stance, or eventually inherit the party from her and take over.
If this actually happens, it could be the most revolutionary act since the French Revolution itself. It would be an Anti-Revolution. It would serve to reverse time and restore order to what some believe to be the heart of Europe. It would potentially be the Final Revolution, a restoration of European order and harmony, and a complete reversal of the cancer that has spread at a historically unbelievable rate since the French Revolution occurred.

Donald Trump and Brexit are both very interesting, and have done well to shift the political tone, but they are both hollow gestures, as both Trump and those behind Brexit are not really conservatives or traditionalists. They are modern capitalists. Steve Bannon summed it up perfectly by describing his movement as an economic nationalist one. They will not reverse the spiritual damage done to the West because they do not have the spirit to do so.

Saying this might annoy or alienate some people, but no American can reverse the damage, as most Americans, whether they like it or not, are against monarchy, hierarchy, and harmonious order. It is in the very roots of the nation. It is in their national spirit, for the most part. They are the sons and daughters of the decline, although some more so than others. America is a nation founded on republican, anti-traditionalist values. America and the French Revolution go hand-in-hand. How America has conducted itself in the world since their “liberation” from monarchy is a testament to this inability to do anything seismic. Of course, there is work to be done in America, work that has to be done by good people, but it is a very complex situation. America is a very young nation, so it could go either way. It could even be that America was merely a mistake, and it will simply dissolve.

Am I saying that Americans must embrace the Queen and monarchy in order to save themselves from the jaws of chaos? Maybe I am. Honestly, I don’t know what they should do. Am I saying that a group of Radical Traditionalists will rise from the ranks of the FN? Maybe I am. Am I saying that, if they do indeed rise to take control of the party and follow through with their traditional values, that it would be, or could be, the saving of Europe? Yes. If this Anti-Revolution takes place, nothing is unimaginable and everything is possible, if time itself can be reversed

Bogus Liberalism is dying.

As RTE admitted yesterday- Rutte & the CDA stole Geerty's clothes.

Marine is 7% short at the mo but the FN's time will come sooner rather than later.


Brexy will be a success, failing there's a Global Collapse & a Successful Brex should be enough to cause the Goldman Sachs / European Union Rapefactory to implode.

Well done Cheps ;)

Macron Meets Merkel: Praises ‘European Agenda’, Slams ‘Extremes’

BERLIN (AP) — French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron pledged strong commitment to European unity and said that France needs to restore its economic credibility as he presented his plans to German leaders on Thursday.

Macron, an independent centrist, met conservative Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin a day after the Netherlands’ prime minister handily defeated anti-Islam firebrand Geert Wilders in the Dutch election.

While cautious about drawing parallels with France, Macron said the outcome shows that “you can defeat the extremes.”

Macron insisted “the European agenda” must be part of domestic political debate, and that “Europe is what protects us today against new risks.”

The Euro establishment is doing its best to make it look like Macron has already won the election. Sad that Auntie May got in on the act.

They really are. I was listening to an interview with a French/American guy in France who was saying the establishment are pushing him hard and he basically was an unknown previously.

Almost 40 per cent of those aged 18-24 intend to vote for far-right National Front

“Young people are in revolt,” says Ms Dieulafait. “We have had 50 years of right and left, and look at the millions of us that are unemployed, living in poverty, without stable jobs or housing . . . it’s time for a change in the system, it’s time for Marine.”

The party is the most popular in France with those in the 18-24 age bracket, capturing 39 per cent of the votes, according to one recent Ifop poll. That is compared with 21 per cent for centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron and 9 per cent for centre-right rival François Fillon.

I understand your position TG & have total sympathy, Theresa has done her bit for Brexit & is puting Britain first instead of winding up the EU as negotiations progress.

Theresa is dedicated to Brexit & Marine is a casualty along the way- whilst that is unfortunate, Brexy is the Silver Bullet for the Rapefactory.
