Yellow Vests go on the offensive

And they are targeting one of the obvious vulnerabilities of the liberal imperialists:

Yellow Vest protesters are hoping to trigger a bank run with a nationwide coordinated cash withdrawal. By threatening the French financial system, protesters say, they want to peacefully force the government to pass their reforms.

“If the banks weaken, the state weakens immediately,” said Yellow Vest “sympathizer” Tahz San on Facebook. “It’s elected officials’ worst nightmare.”

Protesters plan to empty their bank accounts on Saturday, withdrawing as much money as possible in a bid to undermine the French banks – if not the euro itself. The plan is to “scare the state legally and without violence,” forcing the government to adopt the movement’s Citizens’ Referendum Initiative, which would allow citizens to propose and vote on new laws.

“We are going to get our bread back…you’re making money with our dough, and we’re fed up,” said protester Maxime Nicolle in a video message shared on YouTube.

A well-coordinated financial action has the potential to bring the French banking system – and by extension the euro – to its knees, as banks always hold only a fraction of the funds the country’s citizens have in their accounts. However, most banks limit ATM withdrawals to a relatively low amount, meaning protesters would have to line up inside the banks to withdraw the rest of their money, giving the state plenty of time to place restrictions on withdrawals – though this would, no doubt, spark further protest.

This will cause the imperialists to put more stress on “the cashless society”, although everyone should now understand that a cashless society is a controlled society.

Santo Matteo vs the lab rat

Italy’s two senior ministers, Matteo Salvini and Luigi di Maio, are publicly attacking France’s Macron and supporting the gilets jaunes.

In an extraordinary public EU feud, Italy’s Matteo Salvini and his coalition partner have thrown their support behind France’s Yellow Vest movement, while Salvini also accused President Emmanuel Macron of being against his people.

“I support honest citizens who protest against a governing president [who is] against his people,” said the Italian deputy prime minister…. In December, Salvini mocked the French president as a “lab mouse elected to keep the elitist political system in place.”

The prime minister, Cinque Stelle’s di Maio, said, “Politics, in France as in Italy, has become deaf to the needs of citizens who have been kept out of the most important decisions affecting the people. The cry that rings out strongly from the public squares in France is: let us participate! Yellow vests, do not quit!”

Emmanual Macron observably does stand against the French people. He is an enemy of France. He is a globalist, an elite liberal imperialist of the very sort Hazony describes in The Virtue of Nationalism, and he has rejected his nation.

It’s not over

Don’t believe the mainstream media. The Yellow Vest protests are very, very far from over.

French police have deployed tear gas in a bid to quell Yellow Vest protesters in a tense stand-off in the city of Rouen in Normandy. Demonstrations quickly spiralled out of control in the northern French city on Saturday as protesters and riot police clashed in the streets of the picturesque town. Paris, the scene of the most dramatic demonstrations since the rallies began in November, was significantly quieter than previous weeks but it also saw dozens of Yellow Vests gathered on Champs-Elysees on Saturday. On Thursday, a group of the protesters attempted to storm the Mediterranean castle that serves as President Emmanuel Macron’s summer retreat.

(whistles innocently)

I would like to assure everyone that these recent developments have absolutely nothing to do with a certain gathering that is known to have taken place in Spain.

Spain’s socialist government could be in trouble as a populist party is storming the polls in the country. The right-wing VOX party in Spain has been gaining strength and every poll they seem to rank higher. Yesterday it was revealed that VOX have reached an all-time record high in Metroscopia’s poll.

They are now at 11.5 per cent which would mean they could form a government if there was a vote today. The last election, they garnered 0.2 per cent.

That being said, the Nationalist Right is inevitable all across the West. That’s not rhetoric, although it would serve as effective rhetoric. It is, rather, a pure dialectical analysis. The nationalist trend that began in 2015 is the inevitable reaction to the 80-year trend towards globalism. At a bare minimum, the counterreaction will last until at least 2040, but it could continue until 2145 if, as I suspect, the trend has permanently reversed.

We are not slaves

Still don’t see any benefit to Q? If you don’t, you simply don’t understand 4GW or why the globoprop is so focused on attacking what has become a universal symbol of resistance to their rule. This picture isn’t taken in France, by the way, but in the Netherlands.

If you are still having trouble grasping the concept, I suggest you read There Will Be War Vol. IV. Gordon Dickson’s story, “The Cloak and the Staff”, provides a useful lesson in the importance of symbols in the face of ruthless oppression.

Liste des 42 revendications des gilets jaunes

I have some serious doubts that this list of demands that purports to represent what the Yellow Vests want is much more than an attempt to redirect some of the nationalist revolutionary spirit that presently pervades France. Where is the demand for Macron’s resignation, for starters?

  1. Zero homeless: URGENT.
  2. More progressive income tax (more slices).
  3. Minimum monthly income set at 1300 euros net.
  4. Favor the small villages and town centers. Stop the construction of large commercial areas around major cities that kill the small businesses and give free parking in city centers.
  5. Large Housing Isolation Plan. Save the environment by saving households.
  6. Force the LARGE CORPORATIONS (McDonalds, Google, Amazon, Carrefour) to pay MORE taxes and that the small corporations pay less.
  7. Same social security system for everyone (including artisans and autoentrepreneurs). End of the RSI.
  8. The pension system must remain in solidarity and therefore socialized. (No point of retirement).
  9. End of the tax hike on fuel.
  10. No monthly retirement payment below 1,200 euros.
  11. Any elected representative will be entitled to the median salary. His transport costs will be monitored and reimbursed if they are justified. Right to the restaurant ticket and the holiday voucher.
  12. The wages of all French people as well as pensions and allowances must be indexed to inflation.
  13. Protect French industry and prohibit corporate relocations. Protecting our industry is protecting our know-how and our jobs.
  14. End of detached work. It is abnormal that a person who works on French territory does not benefit from the same salary and the same rights. Anyone who is authorized to work on French territory must be on a par with a French citizen and his employer must contribute at the same level as a French employer.
  15. For job security: further limit the number of fixed-term contracts for large companies. We want more CDI.
  16. End of the CICE. Use this money for the launch of a French hydrogen car industry (which is truly ecological, unlike the electric car.)
  17. End of the austerity policy. We will stop repaying the interest on the debt that is declared illegitimate and will repay the legitimate debt without taking the money from the poor and the poorest, but by reclaiming the $80 billion in annual tax evasion.
  18. That the causes of forced migration are addressed.
  19. That asylum seekers be treated well. We owe them housing, security, food and education for the minors. Work with the UN to have host camps open in many countries around the world, pending the outcome of the asylum application.
  20. That the unsuccessful asylum seekers be returned to their country of origin.
  21. That a real integration policy is implemented. Living in France means becoming French. This means a French language course, History of France course and civic education course with certification at the end of the course.
  22. Maximum salary set at 15,000 euros.
  23. That jobs are created for the unemployed.
  24. Increase of disabled allowances.
  25. Limitation of rents. Moderate rent housing, especially for students and low-income workers.
  26. Prohibition to sell property belonging to France (airport dam …)
  27. Substantial means granted to the justice system, the police, the gendarmerie and the army. That law enforcement overtime be paid or recovered.
  28. All the money earned by highway tolls will be used to maintain highways and roads in France and road safety.
  29. As the price of gas and electricity has increased since privatization, we want them to become public again and prices fall significantly.
  30. Immediate closure of small lines, post offices, schools and maternity wards.
  31. Let’s bring wellness to our seniors. Prohibition of making money on the elderly. The gray gold is finished. The era of gray well-being begins.
  32. Maximum 25 students per class from kindergarten to 12th grade.
  33. Substantial means brought to psychiatry.
  34. The People’s Referendum must enter the Constitution. Creating a readable and effective site, supervised by an independent control body where people can make a proposal for a law. If this bill obtains 700,000 signatures then this bill will have to be discussed, completed, amended by the National Assembly which will have the obligation, (one year to the day after obtaining the 700,000 signatures) to submit it. to the vote of all the French.
  35. Back to a 7-year term for the President of the Republic. (The election of deputies two years after the election of the President of the Republic made it possible to send a positive or negative signal to the President of the Republic concerning his policy, so it helped to make the voice of the people heard.)
  36. Retirement at age 60 and for all those who have worked in a trade using the body right to retirement at 55 years.
  37. A child of 6 years not keeping alone, continuation of the PAJEMPLOI help system until the child is 10 years old.
  38. Promote the transport of goods by rail.
  39. No withholding tax.
  40. End of presidential allowances for life.
  41. Prohibit paying merchants a tax when their customers use the credit card. -Taxe on marine fuel oil and kerosene.

The protests will continue

Until the Macron resigns:

Macron’s concessions to the Yellow Vests has failed to appease protesters and opposition politicians, such as Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who called for “citizen’s revolution” to continue until a fair distribution of wealth is achieved. Immediately after French President Macron declared a “social and economic state of emergency” in response to large-scale protests by members of the Yellow Vest movement, promising a range of concessions to address their grievances, left-wing opposition politician Mélenchon called on the grassroots campaign to continue their revolution next Saturday.

It is informative that the professional Left appears to be trying to make itself the public face of the Yellow Vest movement. This is the same thing that the professional Conservative Movement successfully did to the Tea Party, leaping to the head of the parade in order to divert it and dissipate its momentum. They are seeking to make it an economic protest rather than a nationalist one.

Macron makes an offer

I tend to doubt this attempt to buy off the left-wing of the Yellow Vests will work, since it falls well short of him resigning:

French president Emmanuel Macron tonight announced a range of dramatic Socialist-style financial concessions to struggling workers so as to end an ‘economic and social state of emergency’.

In a TV address lasting 12 minutes, he said a month of rioting and blockades justified a €100 (£90) increase in the minimum wage, taking it to €1498 (£1360).

This will not ‘cost anything to the employer’, said Mr Macron, and will be accompanied by all taxes and other charges on overtimes being scrapped.

There were also be an end-of-year bonus that employers can pay without being charged by the government, while taxes on those earning less than €2000 (£1800) will also end on January 1.

Mr Macron also ruled out any return of the Solidarity Wealth Tax, saying that he wanted to stop rich entrepreneurs ‘moving abroad’, so preventing ‘job creation’.

The extraordinarily generous package of measures represents a massive U-turn by Mr Macron who originally said he would not yield to rioting as he tried to liberalise the sluggish France economy.

He’s showing weakness. This is not the time to declare victory and go home, it’s the time to press harder. Notice that he’s appealing to the union leaders; the leaders are always the weak point.

The real story in France

It will probably not surprise anyone here to know that the globomedia is completely misrepresenting the Yellow Vest protests in Paris. This is a post by an American living in Paris about what is really going on with the gilets jaunes.

It’s important to note that the majority of protestors are middle aged, these are not college or university students, who make up the usual French protests. This is a grassroots protest. It’s been reported anywhere from 50-80{f58ffdc504f80bac68191b5fd37702d6450abd7e1b4a7df1cf9b5dab55667e79} of the French support the gilets jaunes. This is NOT just about taxes.

The protests began over the new taxes imposed by Macron’s government on fuel. The taxes are viewed as punishing those who use cars and those who can’t afford to buy newer ones. The French already pay heavy taxes on fuel, along with high tolls on highways. Every car in France is required to have 2 high visibility vests (gilets jaunes). The protestors began wearing those vests while protesting.

Along with this, the cost of living is incredibly high while salaries are painfully low, especially in larger cities like Paris. The myth of government-ordered 35 hour work weeks isn’t the reality for most salaried French people. Taxes eat huge chunks of their money and the French are fed up with making the same amount in their salaries as those who don’t work at all and rely on government assistance.

Parts of France are also filled with unassimilated migrants. These migrants get government assistance as well. A large part of the French are sick of paying for migrants when French people are suffering as well. There are areas that have stopped being culturally French and cities the French avoid for holidays because of the migrant problem.

In addition to this, retired people have been lodging their dissatisfaction with their retirement pensions (one woman in a video circulating around French Facebook confronts Macron about having to live off of 500€ a month) and Macron’s reactions have been condescending across the board. He currently has about a 26{f58ffdc504f80bac68191b5fd37702d6450abd7e1b4a7df1cf9b5dab55667e79} approval rating.

All of this started bubbling up a few weeks ago as the protests began with the gilets jaunes in November. The protests last weekend got violent. Statues at the Arc De Triomphe were broken; the Arc was defaced. In Marseille, an 80 year old woman was killed as she was closing her shutters. The police threw a tear gas canister at her window. While outside of larger cities, many police officers and firefighters are taking off their helmets and/or standing in solidarity with the gilets jaunes. There have been reports that they have also refused to shake Macron’s hand and have turned their backs to government officials while serving in official capacities.

On Monday (December 2), there was a protest by the ambulances in Paris. They stood at Concorde with lights flashing and sirens sounding. Truck drivers have also showed their solidarity. They have also driven through Paris with lights flashing to show their dissatisfaction. Roads have been closed down by gilets jaunes and they are blocking access of oil in both ports and at stations. As of posting, over 650 stations are on a list of facing shortages or out of fuel. During yesterday’s news cycle, many truck drivers were seen disrupting broadcasts by honking in solidarity with the gilets jaunes.

On Tuesday (December 3), the French government spoke about their plans for “appeasement” of the gilets jaunes. Their offer was to postpone the start date of 3 taxes (related to fuel). This offer has been scoffed at by the gilets jaunes, who have called it “crumbs” as the taxes haven’t even been implemented yet and the offer does nothing to address the issues regarding cost of living.

Along with this, the French have begun demanding that Macron refuse to sign the UN Migration Act on December 10. This has begun appearing across the Facebook groups and events but has not been widely reported in the French media as far as I can tell.

This has culminated in everything from demands Macron step down to the creation of the 6th Republic. There are protests planned for Saturday across France. The protestors are calling the Paris protests ACT 4. They are quoting from the French National Anthem (“Aux Armes Citoyens”) and planning to protest at Bastille. The medical community is also participating in the protests on Saturday.

TLDR: This is bigger than taxes. These aren’t your usual French protests.

UN backs Soros

The UN and the EU are desperately trying to get nationalist Hungary to back down and accept foreign invasion before more countries are inspired to defend themselves against the globalist evil:

Hungary’s Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has accused the UN human rights watchdog of “spreading lies” about his country, saying that immigration was not a “fundamental human right.”
The official took aim at the “independent experts” with the UN Human Rights Council, stating they “should not be independent from the truth.”

“Recently, unfortunately, some UN officials started to spread lies against and about my country,” Szijjarto told the UN body’s meeting on Wednesday.

Such officials would like to “force on us impossible things,” namely allowing illegal migrants into the country, Szijjarto stated. “They say that migration is a fundamental human right, which is a lie,” he stressed.

The harsh statement of the foreign minister came as a response to criticism against Hungarian anti-immigration policies. Last week, the UN rights body blasted the so-called ‘Stop Soros’ law, adopted by the country’s government back in July. The UN paper said Hungary “attacks against civil society, migrants, refugees and asylum seekers” with the law, adding that it’s against the international human rights law and poses a threat to the “values” of the whole European Union.

It added that it targets the critical “civil society” and fuels “hostility, xenophobia and … discrimination against migrants, asylum seekers, refugees and all those trying to provide them support.”

The ‘Stop Soros’ law has imposed restrictions on foreign NGOs, which work with migrants, obliging them to seek licenses from the government. It also criminalized aiding migrants, namely “providing financial or property benefit” to them or simply informing them about the asylum-seeking procedures. Those who do so could now face 12 months in jail.

Hungary is nationalist because Hungary understands the long-term costs of being invaded much better than most nations do. The Hungarian leadership is doing what the Right far too often fails to do, which is go on the offensive against its enemies. If all you do is play defense, you will lose. It’s guaranteed. Every party of the Right, from Myanmar to the USA, would be well advised to start aggressively pushing for laws banning the principles, funding, activities, and organizations of the Left.

So-called “freedom of speech” was always a trap. As others have noted, they simply define your speech as violence even as they define their violence as speech.
