EU Faces Next Referendum from French Voters. Opposition to globalist European project fuels rise of French populist candidates on right and left

The European project will face its next test on Sunday, as the people of France head to the polls to participate in the first round of the French presidential elections. With only two days left to go until election day, polls continue to show left-wing candidate Emmanuel Macron virtually neck and neck with right-wing populist candidate Marine Le Pen, each polling around 23 to 25 percent.

Le Pen, an outspoken critic of the European Union and the policies of globalization and mass migration it peddles, has used her message to transform her party from one that sits on the fringes of French politics to one that’s a driving force at the very heart of the national conversation. As the election approaches, the leader of the Front National has only hardened her populist, anti-EU immigration message.

“The European Union is imposing double trouble on us [with] the lack of physical borders with the irresponsible Schengen Treaty,” Le Pen told supporters at a rally on Wednesday.

“We got rid of our physical borders, and that turned our countries into train stations for all immigrants around the world. I will end Schengen and restore our national borders,” said Le Pen, who has also promised voters a referendum on France’s membership in the EU.

Mass immigration is not an opportunity for France, it’s a tragedy for France,” Le Pen said. “The choice on Sunday is simple: It is a choice between a France that is rising again and a France that is sinking,” she said.

On Tuesday, Le Pen refused to be interviewed in front of the EU flag during a television interview. “I want to be the president of the French Republic, I don’t want to be European Commission president,” she said. “I believe the European Union has done a lot of harm to our country,” Le Pen said.

More troubling for the EU itself is that the popularity of Le Pen’s anti-EU message is not confined solely to the populist right. In the past few weeks, what was effectively a two-horse race between Macron and Le Pen, with center-right moderate Francois Fillon trailing comfortably in third place, has become a four-person contest as far-leftist, anti-EU candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon received a surprising surge of support.

The radical left-wing populist is polling at an average of 18.5 percent, according to Bloomberg, nipping at the heels of Fillon, who sits on an average of 19.5 percent support.

EU loyalists are clearly worried about the anti-EU sentiment in France. Last week, German president Frank-Walter Steinmeier urged the French people not to vote for anti-EU candidates.

“Do not listen to the siren songs of those who promise you a great French future after getting rid of all that is part of France today, namely its role as a guarantor of European stability and a pillar of the European Union,” he said.

But with both Le Pen and Mélenchon positioned to reach the runoff and find themselves in the second round of voting, it seems the French aren’t listening to voices like Steinmeier’s.

Obama Disappointed In British Voters, Hailed Egyptians For Electing Terrorist Sympathizer

The Obama administration’s disappointment with the United Kingdom’s referendum on European Union membership contrasts sharply with its celebration of the Muslim Brotherhood’s election in 2012.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a long-known terrorist sympathizing party, its founders spawned the first terrorist attack against the World Trade Center in 1993. In reaction to the Muslim brotherhood’s election, President Barack Obama’s White House issued a statement of congratulations, saying the U.S. would “stand by the Egyptian people as they fulfill the promise of their revolution.”

Vice President Joe Biden, speaking before Trinity College in Dublin June 24, told the audience, “I must say we had looked for a different outcome.” Biden later elaborated, “reactionary politicians and demagogues peddling xenophobia, nationalism, and isolationism.”mental illness

Obama took the unprecedented step of traveling to the U.K. in April to advocate against the U.K. leaving the EU. During his trip, Obama warned the United States would prioritize trade deals with the EU over bilateral trade with the U.K. Speaking on the timeline for a prospective U.S.-U.K. trade agreement, Obama said, “It’s not going to happen anytime soon,” and further claimed “The U.K. is going to be in the back of the queue.”obama- Marxist tyrant

During the Arab Spring, the White House did not take such a stark position during elections in Tunisia or Egypt. Prior to the elections of the terrorist sympathizing government in Egypt, Obama issued a statement saying, “The United States does not support particular individuals or political parties.”If his mouth is open he must be lying

Both Biden and Obama emphasized the administration’s “respect” for the referendum and America’s commitment to maintaining a “special relationship” with the U.K. Biden followed that commitment by saying, “some politicians find it convenient to scapegoat immigrants instead of welcoming them, play to our fears rather than appeal to our better natures, divide us based on religion or ethnicity rather than unite us in our common humanity, and build walls between nations when we should be building bridges among us.”More Liberal Gibberish

EXCLUSIVE – Sarah Palin: Marion Maréchal-Le Pen and 16 Centuries of Christian France


waving flagby Sarah Palin13 Dec 2015

Marion Maréchal-Le Pen is the new deserved “It Girl” of French politics and a clear voice of courage and common sense in a country and continent in need of both.

In 2012, she earned the distinction of being France’s youngest elected Member of Parliament. Last week she handily won the first round of a race for the leadership of a large important region in southeastern France that’s home to the beautiful port city of Marseilles. Unfortunately, she lost the run-off election today because the two establishment Parties joined forces to defeat her.

But despite today’s tough losses, Marion and her aunt Marine Le Pen, the leader of the National Front (FN) Party, have established themselves and their supporters as a force to be reckoned with in France’s 2017 presidential race, in which Marine is sure to be a contender with her talented niece right behind her.

For some time now, I’ve admired the bold style of Marine Le Pen, who wrestled control of the leadership of her populist party in order to purge it of any trace of anti-Semitism, which it had unfortunately been tainted with in the past. But I’m especially impressed with the courage of her young niece who is a devout Catholic and unapologetically pro-life – not an easy thing for a politician to be in a country that’s aggressively secular.

More importantly, young Marion Maréchal-Le Pen is unashamed to champion France’s Judeo-Christian identity and heritage as something worth preserving and fighting for. She publicly proclaims it, setting an example for even American politicians to be so bold. With France (and indeed all of Europe) caught up in an existential crisis against radical Islam, these are the sentiments they need in their leadership.

The Charlie Hebdo attacks last January and the Paris attacks last month were a tragic wake up call for France. The forces of civilization are engaged in a great war against the Death Cult that is radical Islam. This year the conflict reached the shores of France, which has become the Western Front of this Great War, thanks in part to the migrant crisis overwhelming the European Union.

Was anyone surprised that the mastermind of the Paris attacks entered the country by posing as a Syrian “refugee”? The Islamic State bragged that they were going to exploit Europe’s open borders! Is this not the clearest warning to politically correct pundits and politicians in our own homeland who think we can filter the nefarious out from the future flood of young, strong, able-bodied immigrants claiming “refugee” status? It’s common sense to encourage these young men to stay and fight for their countries and families during this time made tumultuous in part by our utter lack of border security and vetting processes.Do you want

The migrant crisis has made a mockery of any idea of national sovereignty. The EU’s open border policy means that all of Europe is now forced to bear the burden of Germany’s insane decision to welcome in those untold millions of mostly fighting age young Muslim men who have zero interest in assimilating to secular western values, as heretofore mentioned.

To this, Marion Maréchal-Le Pen declares that France is not an Islamic land, but Muslims are welcome to become French citizens “only on condition that they bend to the customs and the way of life that Greek, Roman and 16 centuries of Christianity fashioned.”

What she’s saying should not be controversial. It’s common sense. The western values enjoyed by every French citizen regardless of their religion are necessarily rooted in those 16 Christian centuries. Our understanding of human rights and human dignity comes from the Judeo-Christian worldview that shaped modern Europe. If you transplant to your shores a foreign population that’s hostile to the very things your country stands for, you won’t have a country for very long. This is the hard truth. You can’t maintain a peaceful liberal democracy with people who want to impose Sharia law on you.

But for some reason saying this out loud is considered “hate speech” or xenophobia in Europe. They can even press criminal charges against you for it!Truth The New Hate Speech

We see members of a Death Cult gun down Parisians in a café and concert hall, slaughter cartoonists at their desks, shoot up a Jewish market, sell women and girls into sexual slavery, stone gays to death, crucify and behead Christians, and declare their intention to infiltrate and destroy western countries. But the Left reserves its harshest criticism not for the murderous Death Cult, but for any leader offering commonsense solutions to curtail the terrorists’ ability to wage war on the innocent.

The Left wraps itself in political correctness and multiculturalism like a suicide vest. They’d rather blow up the whole country than admit the stupidity of thinking a nation can remain the same after inviting in millions of people who despise its values.cause of death

I guess it’s not surprising really. The Left in Europe and America has always had a self-destructive hatred for the things that make a country great and worth living in: free markets, free speech, a civil society grounded in Judeo-Christian values, a strong national defense, and sovereign borders. They’re constantly attacking every one of these things. That’s undeniable.

But their dangerous ideology is being “mugged by reality.” People are waking up. Young Marion Maréchal-Le Pen built her electoral win last week by going to the rural small business owners – the average French citizens who have been ignored by their elite politicians and have had enough.

We see the same thing happening here in America. Call it the rise of the populists. Pundits are already seeing the similarities between Marion and Marine Le Pen, Donald Trump, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). All are non-establishment candidates taking on corrupt, entrenched, and detached political elites who are more interested in preserving their own power than in defending their countries.How is Trump Looking Now

It’s time to wake up, America. Nowhere in Europe or America is safe from this Great War against the Death Cult. San Bernardino wasn’t a one-off phenomenon. ISIS is already here. According to a House Homeland Security report, over 250 people in the U.S. have attempted to join ISIS (that we know about), and 82 have been caught in ISIS plots. Meanwhile, the FBI has nearly 1,000 open cases involving ISIS that we know of.

We don’t have a handle on this situation now, but our insane politicians want to import more so-called “refugees.” Forgive me if I’m a little skeptical about the refugee part. We just learned that ISIS is forging fake Syrian passports, and we already know that two of the Paris attackers entered Europe posing as refugees. We have no way to vet anyone coming to our country. This is why we need to seal the borders.

And we must speak candidly about the need for those coming here to assimilate to our values, as immigrants have always done in the past. Our country isn’t 16 centuries old, but our Founders were under the influence of nearly 18 centuries of Judeo-Christian thought and time-tested truths when they drafted our Constitution. We would do well to remember that our Constitution is incompatible with Sharia, and anyone who wants to live under Sharia should settle elsewhere.

When Marion Maréchal-Le Pen speaks of France’s 16 centuries of Judeo-Christian history and heritage, her rhetoric isn’t about “hate” or xenophobia. It’s about love – that deep love of country we call patriotism.

Mark Twain believed patriotism was personified in the story of a young French woman who “found a great nation lying in chains, helpless and hopeless” and led it “from victory to victory” until it was free. “With Joan of Arc love of country was more than a sentiment – it was a passion,” Twain wrote. “She was Patriotism embodied.”

As Marion faces the political battles ahead, I wouldn’t be surprised if she says a prayer to France’s Patron Saint, for Marion is a reminder of her – Joan of Arc.

Obama in secret pact with world’s largest Muslim country

President Widodo of Indonesia and Obama of the United States.

muslim-obamaPresident Obama says the U.S. and the world’s largest Muslim country will merge their economies under an agreement whose terms have not been disclosed to Congress or the public. After Obama met with Indonesian President Joko Widodo at the White House Monday, Widodo said, “Indonesia intends to join the TPP,” referring to the TransPacific Partnership.

Indonesia is the most populous Muslim nation in the world with 250 million people. Obama attended elementary school in the country. “I have a very personal interest in Indonesia given the fact that I spent time there as a child and have relatives who are Indonesian,” Obama said.

The TPP is a sweeping global regulatory pact. It establishes an international authority that will write rules for merging the U.S. economy with other countries in the partnership. The administration reached an agreement on the TPP with 11 countries on four continents after negotiations that lasted more than five years. Indonesia was not involved in the negotiations.

But neither Congress nor the public have been allowed to see the final agreement the administration has negotiated. The president has not released the text of the agreement or the numerous side agreements attached to the TPP.Picture2

The administration describes the TPP as a “living agreement” that will be updated and which other countries can join in the future. China, South Korea, the Philippines and Taiwan also have expressed interest in joining the TPP economic union. But it appears the U.S. Congress will not have any say in the matter.Picture2

Earlier this year, Congress granted the president “fast track” trade promotion authority to negotiate the TPP and surrendered its ability to change whatever agreement the president proposes. An amendment to the fast track bill would have required congressional approval before China could join the TPP. But the amendment, opposed by GOP leadership and the president, was defeated.

The unilateral move by the president to bring Indonesia into the TPP confirms charges by Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., that Congress will have no role in approving changes as the partnership grows. Sessions read the draft of the TPP agreement earlier this year and described it as “a nascent European Union.”Picture3

Like the European Union, the Transpacific Partnership calls for the free flow of people, goods and capital among member countries. “It’s going to put us in an international commission that allows the sultan of Brunei to have the same vote as the president of the United States,” Sessions said.

Sessions is referring to the TransPacific Partnership Commission, a governing authority created under the agreement, similar to the European Commission that oversees the European Union. This shadowy trans-Pacific body would have vast regulatory powers the details of which the president has refused to disclose to either Congress or the public. But it appears the president has revealed details to Indonesia and other countries it hopes to enlist in the pact. While Obama refuses to show the public the TPP agreement, the president and his surrogates are out selling the pact with a series of speeches and op-eds.

Poll after poll shows the majority of Americans across the political spectrum oppose the TPP. All the leading presidential candidates, including Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, oppose the agreement. Politico reports Republican leaders in the House and Senate want to vote on the TransPacific Partnership in a lame-duck session of Congress after the November 2016 general election. “If it’s such a good deal, then why do they want to keep the American people from having an influence on it?” Sessions asked. “Why don’t they bring it up during the election [campaign] so people can vote and evaluate their representatives on how they vote?”

Workers in Indonesia earn as little $2.50 a day.

A former NSA intelligence analyst has claimed that a senior European diplomat told him that the entire government of a European country considers president Obama to be literally mentally unwell.DO NOT JACKASS

John Schindler, a security expert and whistleblower who now writes for The Daily Beast, has claimed that a senior EU official from an undisclosed country also inquired about impeachment proceedings, saying that the nation believes Obama is not fit for office.

Schindler tweeted out the revelation Monday:

t01The wording indicates that the opinion is not that of a single person, but rather the whole government of whichever European country the diplomat is from.

The following countries make up the European Union:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

According to Schindler’s source, one of the governments of those nations considers Obama to be mentally unstable.

Schindler is a former U.S. Naval War College lecturer and is known to have many high level military and government contacts. The revelation prompted a splurge of activity on social media:t02 t07 t06 t05 t04 t03
