"Very sad day & night in Paris. Maybe its time to end the ridiculous and extremely expensive Paris Agreement and return money back to the people in the form of lower taxes?.."
President Trump on "Twitter" 12/8/2018
"Yellow vest protests show that Europe has failed on democracy, human rights and freedom"
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan speaks today 12/8/2018
The "yellow vests" protest today has drawn strong reactions from the President of the United States all the way to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Erdogan denounced "chaos" caused by protests and "disproportionate force" used on protesters and took the opportunity to slice into opposition to Islamic influence in Europe.
"Europe's walls of security and welfare are not being shaken by migrants or Muslims, but by Europe's own citizens."
Official government figures released tonight are 1,385 arrests nationwide Saturday as police cracked down to head off anyone who looked "dangerous" or "violent". People were searched randomly with "dangerous items" being cause for arrest. Others had gear to protect them from tear gas and concussion grenades taken from them. 975 of those arrested today are being kept in jail.
1,150 of the arrests were in Paris as the protests and clashed occurred in cities across the country.
The government and media are hyping the notion that some of those arrested are "extremists".
Just like the Bunkerville and Oregon Standoff cases in the USA with the Bundy's and their supporters there will be a push by the government of France to punish those targeted like Eric Drouet (mentioned in earlier posts) and many others.
Some reverberation across the Channel in the UK with United Kingdom Independence Party leader Gerard Batten calling out a false flag online post for tomorrow's UKIP rally against Theresa May's so-called Brexit that told people to wear yellow vests....

From the EU and NWO statists like Macron, et. al.
I’m starting to believe it might be possible. If 125,000 people are in the streets there’s no way the government can mow them down and get away with it.
I got a feeling if Trump is removed from office there’s going to be more than 125,000 protesting.
If by "protesting" you mean something much more than being vocal, then you would be wrong.
French need to take over their government, move to repatriate Muslims to the middle east. That’s the only way to save their Republic.
We will have to repatriate the 22 million illegals in our country or be in the same boat next Dem that wins.
We are in the the age of post-democracy. Doesn’t matter who we vote for, the globalists run the show via the deep state and court system.
Need a drastic (legal) political reset to change course.
Europe’s walls of security and welfare are not being shaken by migrants or Muslims, but by Europe’s own citizens.”(Erdogan)
Dream on, Erdogan.
Every sh*t situation anywhere in Europe is caused by the bearded Barbarians they allow in.
Kick’m all out and the situation will normalize.
i wouldn’t take that bet...we have freedom and justice in our DNA
>> I got a feeling if Trump is removed from office theres going to be more than 125,000 protesting. <<<
And we wont be nice about it.
Awesome post. I couldn’t agree more, and now is the time before too many boomers are gone with Millennials taking their place.
Sadly, I think you are correct. I dont see massive numbers of people rioting over Trumps removal (if that were to happen, which I doubt). The only thing that gets people out rioting are things that impact their pocket book. Other protests are all fairly small scale.
When your hand gets blown off by the French Authorities.
Trump will NOT be removed.
Dems won’t even impeach him because they know there’d be a massive political backlash as there was with Clinton.
The blowback legally is about to happen soon.
It's only illegal if you lose ...
Oh, if only that was an accurate number! The actual number of illegals here even by from estimates from the last census are actually 50% higher than that.
30+ million illegals?
That’s 10% of our country!
Be careful what you wish for.
I agree. Ive posted that and Ive also posted that they have painted themselves into a corner with impeachment talk. If they impeach they cant remove (unless there really is something-which there isnt). Their idiotic base thinks all they have to do is impeach. They dont know the process. However, the Dems arent stupid. BUT-they also know it kills them in 2020 just like it did us in 1998. But-that means they also lied to their base when they dont impeach, which means theyve now pissed off their base. Theyre damned if they do and damned if they dont. Its pretty funny actually.
“we have freedom and justice in our DNA”
The problem is that those with our DNA would lose to those with other DNA.
Like insects all bunched up... Stomp on them...
