Six months ago, while Paris burned, French President Emmanuel Macron attended the G-20 summit in Argentina, where he spoke of globalization and the need for costly measures to stop climate change. Back home, rioters wearing yellow vests tore through Paris, lighting vehicles on fire, spraying graffiti on and destroying historical monuments. They were protesting high taxes and out-of-control increases in the cost of living in France due to Macron’s ridiculous carbon taxes.

Journalist Nabila Ramadi, who has been covering the protests in France, writes:

Since the protests began earlier this month, there have been two traffic accident-related deaths linked to illegal road blockades, and more than 500 wounded. Scores of yellow vests have been charged with public order offenses.

However, it would be unfair to suggest that the many thousands taking part in the demonstrations were all punchy bigots. The majority of those I spoke to were part of a forgotten France based in the suburbs of major cities or the countryside. They rely on very low incomes or benefits and are mainly dependent on their cars to get them anywhere. Their rage is aimed at a metropolitan elite who not only have far more money and power but who can afford to pay for the kind of green initiatives which are partly behind the fuel price rises.

Emmanuel Macron – the French head of state the yellow vests call “president of the rich” – personifies this class of out-of-touch townies. His perceived arrogance has resulted in a woeful approval rating of just 26 percent, according to recent polls – all while close to a tenth of the fit-for-work population remains unemployed. The former merchant banker is frequently pictured on a bike at the many holiday homes available to him and has pledged to keep increasing ecologically motivated taxes in line with the Paris climate change agreement.

France’s voters are now repaying their globalist president for his out-of-touch leadership, by replacing him with the popular nationalist candidate, Marine LePen. The Socialist candidate is in dead last place, a sign that Socialism is not so popular in France anymore. Let that be a lesson to Americans who consider presidential candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) to be serious candidates in 2020.

According to Sky News, Marine Le Pen is declaring victory in the European Parliament election over pro-EU French President Emmanuel Macron.

The French far-right, nationalist leader said the expected result “confirms the new nationalist-globalist division in France and beyond”.

From Zero Hedge – In what may be the biggest shock from today’s European parliamentary elections, President Emmanuel Macron is set to suffer a blow with French voters set to hand a victory to Marine Le Pen’s National Rally, picking the vocal Eurosceptic and nationalist over the former Rothschild banker.

A Macron supporter has a meltdown on Live TV over the results of the election:

Macron’s En Marche (Republic on The Move) will have just 22.5% of the vote compared with 24% for Le Pen, according to pollsters Ifop. With Macron and Le Pen neck and neck ahead of the elections, the outcome will be a humiliation for the liberal politician who said before the elections that everything less than 1st place would be a defeat.

Rounding out The Greens were third with 13%, the conservative Republicans got 8%, while the implosion of the Socialists continues, coming in dead last with just 6.5% of the vote.

Today’s vote followed months of relentless protests which have seen looting and vandalism in Paris. Macron responded with a raft of new spending plans and tax cuts to appease the Yellow Vest movement but the measures failed to convince voters.
