French Military Gives Police the Green Light to SHOOT PROTESTERS

Macron and his goons have gone too far this time.

Historically, the French people have not been shy about passionately opposing those who they deem unfit for office, nor are they ever particularly far removed from the idea of another revolution.

Now, as Paris burns for the umpteenth straight week, French President Emmanuel Macron is discovering that a bloated government is a surefire way to get form c’est la vie to sacre bleu.

His proposed tax on petrol was so wholly opposed by the French people that massive protests began just as soon as news of the proposed tax hit the mainstream.  Macron, after weeks of violence in nearly all corners of France, finally took a step back…but it was too late.  At this point, the so-called “Yellow Vest” protesters had spent enough time researching the issues at hand that they were simply fed up with Macron himself.

Now, as the action intensifies, the embattled French President has given his military forces an irreconcilable directive.

Soldiers mobilized for Saturday’s planned Yellow Jacket protests will operate under strict instructions, but could open fire if their lives or the lives of civilians are threatened, General Bruno Leray, military governor of Paris, said Friday.

Several thousand soldiers from Opération Sentinelle, a French military operation deployed following the January 2015 Île-de-France attacks, will be stationed outside numerous official sites during Saturday’s demonstrations — the 19th weekend of street protests by the broad anti-government movement.

In a later statement, Leray even went so far as to seemingly equate the protesters to “terrorists”.

“My subject is not a political one,” Leray said when asked whether the purpose of his rare public address was to warn nonviolent protesters to stay away from the demonstrations, which have regularly degenerated into violence. “The subject of the soldiers is to continue the fight against terrorism one day at a time, as they’ve been doing for four years.”

The populist nature of the protests in Paris and beyond may be a factor in the lax coverage of the immense civil unrest, with the corporately-controlled mainstream media hoping to quash any potential, similar uprisings elsewhere.

Canada Responds to Trump’s Tariff Reversal in a BIG WAY

China may still be a holdout at this late stage, but Trump’s economic prowess is paying dividends up north.

President Trump is once again at the helm of the American economy, after a few embarrassing weeks of distraction by the delusional democrats, and we couldn’t be happier. As the CEO-in-Chief pushes forward on a number of trade initiatives designed to spur the American economy ever upwards, reaction from the world’s stage has been mixed. In China, trade talks have begun to stall as Beijing continues to play the only card they have:  Sheer economic size.  Closer to home, however, President Trump is capitalizing on the close relationship that the US has with Canada in order to drive home the USMCA. Canadian officials look to be fully on board. Canada will move quickly to ratify the new North American trade pact, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Saturday, a day after the United States agreed to lift tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum. U.S. President Donald Trump had imposed the global “Section 232” tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum in March 2018 on both Canada and Mexico on national security grounds, invoking a 1962 Cold War-era trade law. The metals tariffs were a major irritant for Canada and Mexico and had caused them to halt progress toward ratification of the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the trilateral trade deal signed last year which will replace the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The language was unmistakable. “We were very clear that as long as the 232 tariffs were there it would be very, very hard for us to ratify the new NAFTA, and that is why we did not table the legislation,” Freeland said in an interview broadcast by CBC radio. “Now that that big obstacle is lifted, full steam ahead,” she said, without saying when the agreement would be presented to parliament, which closes down in…

Dog in Thailand with Three Legs Hailed as Hero After Saving Abandoned Newborn

And he did it all with only three legs.

We don’t deserve dogs. Sure, that has been said thousands of times over throughout the course of modern history, but the logic is still difficult to argue with even with all of that preparation. These creatures, after tens of thousands of years as our only true companion animal, have evolved into not only being fairly well dependent on us, but also to love us unconditionally, and in ways that we could only dream about. New research even suggests that owning dogs has altered the human genetic code, and that being a “dog person” is something that a DNA test can reveal. Furthermore, dogs are kind and caring in ways that we may never be able to replicate as a more sentient animal. Take the case of a peculiar pup in Thailand who this week saved a newborn baby from an unfathomable fate at the hands of its mother. A dog in northern Thailand has rescued a newborn baby after it was buried alive, allegedly by its teenage mother. The baby boy is said to have been abandoned by his mother, 15, to hide her pregnancy from her parents. Ping Pong the dog was barking and digging in a field in Ban Nong Kham village. Its owner says he then noticed a baby’s leg sticking out of the earth. Locals rushed the baby to hospital where doctors cleaned him up and declared he was healthy. Ping Pong, despite having lost a leg in a car accident, has always been a good boy. Ping Pong’s owner, Usa Nisaikha, says it lost the use of one of its legs after being hit by a car. He told Khaosod Newspaper: “I kept him because he’s so loyal and obedient, and always helps me out when I go to the fields to tend to my cattle.…
