Macron – A Hero in France?

The German media is hailing Macron’s term as President of France as a grand success! He’s a hero! He’s a saint! He has accomplished what no man has done before and as a result his approval rating is at an all time high! Yeah!! Or not.

What has Macron accomplished that makes him worthy of such accolade? He has made a few tax reforms and a labour reform or two.   The tax reform is to reduce the corporate rate from 33.3% to 25%, to introduce a ‘progressive tax rate’, and abolish property tax rates. Some of these overhauls will phase in as of 2018, others will phase in over 5 years, including the corporate tax rate reduction.   Many of his tax reforms were simultaneously imposed by Trump, however the reception of the German media was quite hypocritical.  In fact, they were downright irate!  How dare Trump!

Labour reforms include making it easier to fire people, and lifting some regulations although the 35 hour work week and the retirement age of 62 remain in force. Yawn.

As a result of Macron’s massive reforms, France’s GDP rose to about 1.6%! WOW! The only problem, the GDP was estimated to rise to this level in 2014, three years before Macron was elected.   So how could he possibly be anointed with this accomplishment?

France holds an unemployment rate of 9.7%, and a youth unemployment rate of 24%.   It’s debt stands at about a third of the US, yet it’s GDP is only 11% of that of the US, and public debt is 20% higher.   Yet, somehow Macron is a genius and Trump an idiot? How does that work?

Macron’s proposal claims that the ‘source’ of revenue to cover these dramatic reforms will come from freezing government wages, a reduction of 120,000 public sector jobs, and a reduction in subsidies to French regions.   All of which will increase – unemployment.  Hmmm.

Merkel, Macron, Spain, Italy and Belgium all voiced major protests regarding Trump’s tax reform because they felt it would reflect in their own economic rosy development picture.   Which is true.   In addition, if Trump follows through with cuts to the UN and NATO, Europe will have to provide for their own military, increasing budgetary costs while already operating at a deficit.  The US has been subsidizing their militaries for decades, by the same taxpayers that the French consider unworthy and American racist, white, elite, Deplorables.

Macron’s approval rating is also subject to interpretation fluctuating Yugely depending on who is conducting the poll. Strange…  Some claim he sat at 60% when elected. Others report he tanked to 50% as of September only to rebound to 52% today…   That is according to the pollster, Ifop, a market research firm that sells polls to political parties.   But other pollsters claimed that Macron’s approval rating was 30% as of September, a far cry from the Ifop polls. How could that be?

Ifop is headed by Laurence Parisot, a woman, who also happens to be on the board of PNP Paribas. Paribas is infamously linked to the Rothschilds, the same Rothschilds who bought Macron and groomed him before planting him into the fray for election fodder.

Swaying public thought, the altered approval rating is simply another means of creating fake news.

France’s largest source of revenue is it’s chemical industry accounting for $73 billion in annual exports and which includes a cluster of US companies including; DOW Chemical, Exxon, DuPont, and LyondellBasell.   If those companies would decide to repatriate their stream back to the US per the revised tax reform instituted by Trump, the dent would be felt by France’s economy.  Hence the massive fear invoked in the EU for Trump and his reforms.

While the tax rates of both France (phased in over 5 years) and the US have been lowered, there does remain a giant thorn, the cost of labour, the work week, and unions. According to one company that was being asked to open shop in France, this was his impression:

Maurice Taylor Jr., head of the tyre company Titan International did not mince his words:

‘”I’ve visited this factory several times. The French workers are paid high wages but only work three hours. They have one hour for their lunch, they talk for three hours and they work for three hours. I said this directly to their union leaders; they replied that’s the way it is in France.”

Anyone…Anyone?

Marine Le Pen: Battered By CRIF?

Marin Le Pen was bloodied by the media for her remark that “France” was not responsible for the roundup of Jews during WWII, it was, ‘those in power’.   It is similar to the defense we use in the US for gun ownership, ‘guns don’t kill people, people kill people’. A gun is a tool – just as France was a tool.

It echoes the recent attempts to blame an entire country and all it’s people in the present for the crimes committed by ‘people’ decades, hundreds – if not thousands of years ago.   It would be like putting every American citizen on trial for the crimes of the Puritans. Or, putting all the American Indians on trail for the rapes and scalpings of white men, women, children hundreds of years ago.

Therefore, Le Pen’s statement that ‘France’ is not to blame today for the crimes committed by those in power during WWII – is absolutely, correct.

As such, Jewish commentators should be careful in rallying the French Jews behind Macron based on the idea that Le Pen is now somehow a ‘Holocaust denier’. Broad Jump!

Today, a Townhall commentator has decried that Le Pen will treat all Jews like the Muslims and therefore they should place their vote with Macron. The source of the Le Pen denouncement would seem to come from CRIF;   Conseil Représentatif des Institutions juives de France.

So what is CRIF?

1976 to 1982, Alain de Rothschild was President of CRIF.

From 2001 to 2007, and again from 2013 to 2016, Roger Cukierman served as the President at CRIF. Prior to that he worked for the Edmond de Rothschild Group and for the Banque Privee Edmond de Rothschild.

What can be deduced is that the Jewish media cry for Macron, who was also a former ‘employee’ of Rothschild, and the denouncement of Le Pen, is all built on the Rothschild agenda advocating globalization, world power, and a Socialist/Communist regime change utilizing puppet governments.

European  media outlets are blustering over a comment made by Rabbi Lazar during a FSU conference.  It is important to understand the context of Rabbi Lazar’s statement in which he advises Jews to leave France if Le Pen is elected. In 2015, Benjamin Netanyahu made the same plea, calling for France’s Jews to come home after three days of Islamist attacks. The point?  France has the largest Muslim population of any country in Europe.  France is NOT a safe haven for Jews as a direct result of the massive Islamist extremism that has punctuated there.

Given that Le Pen vows to crack down on immigration, crime and extremist attacks inside France, a new spate may erupt in defiance.   While Macron’s stance is a rather pathetic, ‘”well they are here to stay, terrorism is just a part of life now, live with it”, philosophy, Le Pen does not want to play dead.  As such she is vowing to secure France from Islamic extremism which should be a Halleluja for the Jewish population.

When Netanyahu was making the plea, their was no National Front in power, it was Hollande, the Socialist do nothing.   It is Rothschild and Soros pushing for a Macron win, attempting to twist the leverage through manipulation of the Aliyah or Exodus that has been instituted and called for since 2014.

The Times of Israel offers a different perspective which shows that many French Jews are reluctant to publically announce their preference for Le Pen for fear of reprisal or backlash. Instead, they keep their opinions private and vote their conscious. A similar phenomena occurred in the US leaving the pollsters quaking in their boots as all their fine algorithms proved worthless after a Trump win.

As such, it would behoove the French to investigate the sources of the pro-Macron propaganda, such as CRIF.  And I suppose if Le Pen does win, it will all be a Russian plot…

FYI:   The left leaning Liberals decry the fact that Le Pen would limit Jews from wearing Kippahs… however crosses, kippahs and Hijabs have already been banned in France’s public schools since 2004. Where was the Indignation? Funny, there was no Jewish response, only Muslim outrage.
