French Authorities Now Deploying Water Cannons Against Citizens

The French are revolting against the ruling class that President Macron represents, and being dehumanized by authorities in the process.

Published

France

French President Emmanuel Macron has long been one of the leading proponents of the globalism ethos, capitulating and promoting the tenets of the European Union with his every breath.

As such, Macron’s commitment to the oft-debated concept of global warming has undoubtedly steered his agenda as the leader of France.  Part of this agenda included a proposed fuel and carbon tax that sent the people of his country into hysterics, with many viewing their President as nothing more than a shill for the leftist, globalist cabal that has been squeezing the working class the world over.

The “yellow vest” protests that have erupted over the course of the last month have not ceased, rather, they have increased in ferocity as of late…even after Macron rescinded his tax plans.  You see, the French people are no longer angry about the tax; they are angry at Macron’s lavish, ruling class nonchalance, and are attempting to send a message.

The French authorities, however, have now taken to extreme measures in order to preserve Macron’s rule, including the inexcusable use of water cannons to disparage these protesters from speaking their minds.

Tear gas billowed Saturday across the French capital’s protest-scarred Champs-Elysees after a day of largely peaceful demonstrations and water cannons shot into the crowds on the fifth straight weekend of protests by the country’s “yellow vest” movement.

The demonstrations against France’s high cost of living — sapped by cold weather, rain and recent concessions by French President Emmanuel Macron — were significantly smaller Saturday than at previous rallies, some of which scarred parts of Paris with vandalism and looting.

A few thousand people marched up and down the famed shopping street in Paris, a spirited yet peaceful gathering that edged into violence as the afternoon wore on. Riot police clashed with demonstrators as the occasional tourist darted from their hotel or a brave Christmas shopper took a peek at the neighborhood’s mostly boarded-up storefronts.

In the late afternoon, a water cannon in a line of police vans confronting protesters sprayed water into a crowd in frigid weather to disperse them. Firefighters put out a fire on a side street leading to the Champs-Elysees and limited scuffles broke out between protesters and police.

The mainstream media’s take on the protests has been hotly contested by those in the know and on the ground in Paris, with protesters claiming that they are being misrepresented in the international community.

1,200 Migrants Form New Caravan, & They Are Walking Directly to the Southern Border

That could be a problem…

The Mueller report was recently released and completely vindicated Donald Trump. Then, fierce Trump critic Michael Avenatti was arrested for fraud. These are things the American public should be talking about, as they are both major stories. And yet, there’s always something else going on. Now, it appears another migrant caravan is making its way to the country’s southern border – and they are 1,200 strong. How can Dems say with a straight face that this doesn’t call for a national emergency? Here are the details… From Reuters: A caravan of some 1,200 migrants from Central America and Cuba began moving towards the U.S. border from southern Mexico this weekend, migration authorities said on Sunday. The National Migration Institute said the migrants were already inside Mexico when they opted to form a caravan in the southern city of Tapachula on the border with Guatemala. More from The Daily Wire: The development is likely to do little to ease tensions over the Trump Administration’s immigration policies, or between the United States and Mexico. The latter pledged several months ago to do all it could to intercept migrant caravans before they made it too far through the country, offering migrants headed to the United States temporary asylum within Mexico and accelerated access to work permits and the Mexican immigration system. The strategies haven’t worked, though, and migrant caravans continue to push through Mexico to the United States, worsening a growing problem on the border, and crowding Mexican border towns with illegal immigrants in line to declare asylum at Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico border checkpoints. Vice President Mike Pence said the original migrant caravans were funded by leftist groups. The MSM didn’t blink. Residents of Tijuana, Mexico collectively uttered the three words Democrats hate hearing: Trump was right. They are referring to…

Pentagon Delivers Major Blow to Dems, Tells Congress It Authorized $1 Billion for Wall Construction

And here we gooooo…

President Trump’s biggest promise to the American people was that he’d deliver a wall on the southern border. He has delivered and he will continue to deliver. Trump knows that if he doesn’t come through, he may just be the first one-term president since George H.W. Bush. Now, the Pentagon has notified Congress that it has authorized $1 billion for new wall construction. The Pentagon notified Congress Monday night that it has authorized the transfer of $1 billion to begin new wall construction along the US-Mexico border, drawing immediate objections from Democratic lawmakers. A Pentagon budget reprogramming notification sent to Capitol Hill on Monday and obtained by CNN indicates that up to $1 billion will go toward building 57 miles of fencing, improving roads and other measures on the southern border. The Department of Defense authorized the Army Corp of Engineers to begin planning and construction for the project Monday night. The department will direct the funds toward 18-foot-high fencing along the Yuma and El Paso sections of the border, according to a letter acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan sent to Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen. One month ago, President Trump tweeted a video of the wall being built in New Mexico. As you’d imagine, the left was apoplectic.
