French President Insults Protesters, Lies About Their Motives

Macron is panicking as the true message of the Yellow Vest protesters spreads.

The Yellow Vest protests that have been occurring weekly throughout France over the course of several months have been nearly blacked out in the Mainstream Media.

Sure, we are seeing plenty of footage of the protesters clashing with oppressively-armored police amid smoke bombs and car fires, but the media certainly isn’t telling the whole story.  This has angered a great many of the Yellow Vest members.

Here, one protester explains what they are really fighting for:

The story in the mainstream media, however, is simply revolving around a single fuel tax.  This is, instead, an uprising against the French economic situation and the dastardly deeds of high level, elite bankers.

Of course, the media wishes not to cover this angle, as bankers spend quite a bit of money in advertising.  If CNN were to properly cover these protests and their impetus, it could affect their bottom line when a company such as Wells Fargo pulls all of their advertising from the already doomed station.

That was merely a hypothetical, but it does well to illustrate the inherent issue with relying on the mainstream media for information.

In fact, one could argue that the mainstream media is a weapon of the ruling class, used to disseminate their specific ideas to the masses.

Take, for example, what French President Emmanuel Macron is saying about these protesters, such as the eloquent man you watched above.

French President Emmanuel Macron kept a low profile since he eliminated a carbon tax following a populist uprising against the measure, but he came out swinging Monday night, equating elements within the movement to an anti-Semitic mob sowing discord.

Some believe the so-called Yellow Vest protesters “take as a pretext that they are speaking in the name of the people” when “in fact they are merely speaking for a hateful mob” that targets “police, journalists, Jews, foreigners, homosexuals,” Macron stated. The 41-year-old president has struggled to quell the protests while reports suggest he’s been hiding out.

Given what we know about the media’s inner workings, it’s no surprise that Macron is going nuclear in order to quell these protests; if he fails, the metaphorical guillotine awaits him.

Beto Seemingly Calls for WAR Over Mueller Report Secrecy

The left just had to find some way to make the idea of transparency seem sensational, didn’t they?

Beto O'Rourke

As the nation patiently awaits the findings of the Special Counsel report, a debate is raging. On both sides of the aisle, we are hearing that transparency is key.  Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General and self-proclaimed “heat shield” for Robert Mueller, has expressed his concerns over tarnishing the reputations of those not accused of a crime. The rest of America seems fairly well convinced, and rightly so, that there should be unfettered access to the report. And while this is undoubtedly a widely felt sentiment, the radical left just had to find a way to make it seem sensational. Cue 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke: “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are not made public, saying, “This is an unprecedented attack on this country and on our democracy, and we are owed the facts. And if we do not receive them, 243 years in, there’s nothing that guarantees us a 244th.” O’Rourke is undoubtedly suggesting that a Civil War or revolution could take place over something that everyone already wants. Not only have a number of democrats parroted the “everyone should get to see everything” line, but they’ve done so in complete agreement with Trump-appointed Attorney General Bill Barr. For Beto to go nuclear in this statement is beyond bizarre, and sounds more like a coaxed soundbite than his true sentiment on the subject.

Mueller Report Findings Expected by Congress Sunday

Monday morning’s water cooler chit chat has already been decided.

Is our long national nightmare actually over?  Well, that depends on who you ask today. For many, the completion of the Mueller report on Friday, without any additional indictments being suggest by the Special Counsel, was a huge win for President Trump.  It meant that there wasn’t evidence sufficient to bring charges against the President…perhaps. We should remember that the DOJ’s longstanding belief was that a sitting President could not be indicted. On the left side of the aisle, however, a tense wait has begun, with the Attorney General expected to hand off a summation of Mueller’s findings to Congress any minute. Attorney General William Barr was expected to release his first summary of Mueller’s findings on Sunday, people familiar with the process said, on what lawmakers anticipated could be a day of reckoning in the two-year probe into President Donald Trump and Russian efforts to elect him. Since receiving the report Friday, Barr has been deciding how much of it Congress and the public will see. Of course, for some democrats, this simply wouldn’t cut it. “I suspect that we’ll find those words of transparency to prove hollow, that in fact they will fight to make sure that Congress doesn’t get this underlying evidence,” Rep. Adam Schiff of California, chairman of the House intelligence committee, said on ABC’s “This Week.” His plan: Ask for information and if that’s denied, “subpoena. If subpoenas are denied, we will haul people before the Congress. And yes, we will prosecute in court as necessary to get this information.” For now, we will just wait and see. We do know one thing for certain:  Monday morning around the water coolor is going to be a happenin’ spot.
