Stop Marine Le Pen And Hang the Expense!
Gates of Vienna ^ | 2/17/17 | Baron Bodissey

Some background information is required before you watch the following report from French television.

France is in the midst of a presidential election campaign. Under ordinary circumstances, the Socialists face off against the Republicans (formerly the UMP, the party of Nicolas Sarkozy), and the candidate for one or the other party wins and moves into the Élysée Palace, the residence of the French president.

But France has a multiparty system, and as often as not no candidate gets a clear majority in the first round of voting. The two candidates with the largest pluralities then face each other in the run-off, and the winner becomes president.

Sometimes the French electorate forgets that it is not allowed to vote for “racist” and “xenophobic” candidates, and a significant number cast their ballots for a “right-wing extremist” candidate — these days, usually Marine Le Pen of the Front National, who opposes mass immigration, the EU, and Islamization. Typically, if Ms. Le Pen makes it to the run-off, the losing party urges its voters to turn out and vote for the “non-racist” candidate — the Republicans vote for the Socialist candidate, or vice versa. All in order to keep the dreaded “neo-fascists” of the Front National from gaining power.

For a while it looked like this year’s election was going to see the Socialists voting for the Republicans’ candidate in the run-off. François Hollande, the current Socialist president, had driven his party’s brand so deep into the mud that there was no chance a Socialist could win the election. That left François Fillon — who beat out Sarkozy in the Republicans’ primaries — to face Marine Le Pen after the inevitable failure of the Socialists in the first round of the elections.

However, a few weeks ago Mr. Fillon also self-destructed. It’s too complicated to go into the details, but the scandal involved a well-paying public job for his wife that required her to do little or no work. He did his best to contain the media uproar, but it didn’t work. Marine Le Pen, the leader of the reviled and forbidden right-wing nationalist party, became the clear front-runner with a credible chance of winning the presidency.

From the point of view of the transnational globalists who manage political affairs in France and elsewhere in the West, the result was unthinkable. Marine Le Pen must be stopped at any cost! So the deep-pockets financiers have picked an alternative candidate, a Socialist apparatchik named Emmanuel Macron, to make a last-minute run for the presidency. Mr. Macron — like Justin “Baby Doc” Trudeau in Canada — is young, pretty, and reliably left-wing and multicultural on the issues that count. Money is pouring in and top-notch political consultants have been hired to promote the Macron Brand.

The process is very much like the one that aimed to keep Donald Trump out of the White House. And, just as with #NeverTrump, familiar globalist players are active in the campaign — note the prominent appearance of George Soros in this report.

No expense will be spared to keep Marine Le Pen out of the Élysée.

And of course, the Fillon “scandal” , which was known all along by parties involves , only burst to the scene at a critical moment, while we know the socialists are rotten to the core. Macron is chosen young because not exposed yet, but he is no less a pimp , recently making a plantation speech about how he is going to appoint women to
do his talking , ah! to let women speak! (but they will be under his socialist programmed rule!)

Both Fillon and Macron were indeed doing only what the EU told them to do as desired by Soros. The Theo police abuse scandal is another mediatic outrage manipulation to prop up the socialists with Macron-Hamon vs Lepen and no one on the Gaulist side

A sniper would be a great help, especially in the case of the old man.

Congratulations...you're now famous. Now they'll never stop with the spam emails and junk phone calls.

Macron’s candidacy is already falling apart. He is too obvious an idiot, with no coherent policy.
