France Hunger Games

Posted: February 7, 2017 in Uncategorized

As we are heading towards the elections the heat starts to pick up…in a similar way to the US election.

Le Pen is slightly ahead and seen as winning the first round, but then losing to a more centrist candidate in the second round. Le Pen just issued her manifesto which in a very short summary spells the end of the European Union

-Protectionism

-EU overhaul (no single currency, no free movement), otherwise Frexit referendum

-Social benefits skewed towards French citizen (before you get angry about this – in Italy as the social benefits are skewed towards more children…more immigrants get public housing than Italian old couples on the brink of starvation)

She softened a bit the more some points of her 2012 agenda to appeal more to centrist base.

She has also a scandal ongoing for misuse of EU funds (she spent Euro 300,000 on Party staff instead of EU assistants), but as for the elections is not big deal.

Fillon, the Center Right candidate, and previously supposedly to win the race is mired in a scandal in which he paid his wife over Euro 900,000 in 10 years for an supposedly nonexistent personal assistant role and now it appears also his children got paid. He refuses to leave the race, but he is practically finished.

Macron, Center Left, again looked like to be the winner as new independent candidate (even if he is a banker and ex minister of Hollande Government). But Assange of Wikileaks (ops, him again) told the media that he is going to release interesting correspondence between Hillary Clinton and Macron including business (Macron was Rothschild banker) and personal (it seems there is something relating he and his wife and alternative gay circles).  Anyway the media are trying their best to depict an Hollande ex finance minister and Rothschild banker as an outsider (quite funny indeed).

Naturally voices are start rising about a Russian involvement (Russia Today last year started a French language channel). And the old KGB (now SVR) was, with the Israeli one, the best secret service in the world.

There will be only one winner.

Did we see it all before?
