    President Emmanuel Macron’s security arrangements were brought into question on Wednesday after he was confronted by protesters calling for his resignation while strolling in a public garden on France’s national holiday. A group of anti-government “yellow vest” demonstrators spotted Macron and started following him, hurling abuse, as he and his wife Brigitte walked with bodyguards in the Tuileries Gardens near the Louvre Museum in Paris on Tuesday. In a video posted on the Gilets Jaunes Infos page on Facebook, what appears to be a few dozen protesters boo and shout «Macron demission!» (Macron resign) as they surround the presidential party,...

    France’s prime minister has called for quick tax cuts to respond to the anger expressed through the yellow vests protests across the country. Prime Minister Édouard Philippe on Monday unveiled the results of a three-month “grand debate” launched by President Emmanuel Macron in response to the protests so ordinary people could express their views on France’s economy and democracy. Philippe says “the debate clearly indicates the direction: we must cut taxes and cut them more quickly.” At the same time, however, he said the government must cut public spending. …
  • Macron Govt: Yellow Vests Have Destroyed 60 Percent of Speed Cameras

    Many Yellow Vests, whose protests grew from an objection to a “green” tax on fuel — now abandoned — which was seen as falling disproportionately on the non-metropolitan working class, see the country’s thousands of speed cameras as part of a “racket” designed to generate extra revenue for the state rather than preserving life, especially since the speed limit was dropped to 50 miles per hour on many roads in 2018. They did indeed raise over a billion euros in fines in 2017, according to the Court of Auditors, and were expected to raise significantly more in 2019.
  • Yellow Vests are violent, racist, hate‑filled liars, says Macron

    President Macron used his new year’s message to denounce the yellow-vest movement as a “hate-filled crowd” at odds with democratic French values. In a televised address to the nation Mr Macron accused the movement, which has caused havoc over the past month, of being liars, violent, antisemitic, homophobic and racist. He said that the movement’s self-proclaimed leaders were “the spokespeople of a hate-filled crowd attacking elected representatives, the forces of law and order, journalists, Jews, foreigners, homosexuals. That is simply the negation of France. I have recently seen things that are unthinkable and heard the unacceptable.” Mr Macron said that...

    Take away FCC operating licenses and shut down the globalist/government propaganda machine A grassroots movement made up of citizens who have become fed up with the political establishment in France has been growing since early November and it has come to a head this month. The movement, known as “gilets jaunes” or “yellow vests” began as an anti-tax protest but has since merged folks from the left and the right into a much broader anti-government movement. The movement has become so large that political experts are now calling it a “new revolution.” [emphasis added]—Matt Agorist “‘Yellow Vest’ Protests Spreading Globally...

    BRUSSELS - Belgian police detained more than 400 people on Saturday after “yellow vest” protesters inspired by riots in France threw rocks and firecrackers and damaged shops and cars as they tried to reach official buildings in Brussels. In the second violence of its kind in the capital in eight days, a crowd which police estimated at around 1,000 faced riot squads who used water cannon and tear gas to keep people away from the European Union headquarters and the nearby Belgian government quarter. Calm was restored after about five hours. The movement in Belgium, inspired by the “gilets jaunes”,...

    The major takeaway from the 40-page sentencing memorandum filed by federal prosecutors Friday for Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal attorney, is this: The president is very likely to be indicted on a charge of violating federal campaign finance laws. It has been obvious for some time that President Trump is the principal subject of the investigation still being conducted by the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Cohen earlier pleaded guilty to multiple counts of business and tax fraud, violating campaign finance law, and making false statements to Congress regarding unsuccessful efforts to build a Trump...
