Well Marine Le Pen was roundly put to one side for now especially here in the West where in Bretagne she got less than 25% of the vote.
This gives a bit of breathing space over the next five years to work on social justice for both the immigrants and the French themselves, a new social contract as it were. Integration rather than segregation, genuine attempts at understanding rather than regurgitated dogma.
Our "Protect the Beautiful Syrian Babies with Bombs" President addresses those whose soul joy in life appears to be salivating over the latest weapons designed purely to kill other human beings, you don't need the latest hardware designed for military use to shoot a stag.
Success I say, it has gone exactly as planned
Note the era of the Great Depression, look familiar?
Some say that the left right paradigm is over that politics needs to be based upon reality, usually by people to whom an ideology is an anathema.
a set of beliefs or principles, especially one on which a political system, party, or organization is based:
The next round
Emmanuel Macron: Neo-liberal
Marine Le Pen: Fascist
The left basically got what was coming to it after the total disaster that was François Hollande [his warmongering did it for me].
This morning at the market I was overheard saying that France was much better working within the EU and not voting LePen. Now admittedly I still speak French with a noticeable Québécois accent and vocabulary I never have tried to hide/change it.
In my opinion it is never worthwhile judging what either party does or says when out of power.
Poland on Thursday welcomed the first US troops in a multinational force being posted across the Baltic region to counter potential threats from Russia.
The Cold War is back on you ask? Was it ever off?
“We’re not getting along with Russia at all,we may be at an all time low”.
All time low? A Cuban Missile Crisis type low? Along with the Hitler comparisons this is top of the pig ignorant quotes of the week chart.
When comparing horrors of today with the glorious past with such lines as "even Hitler wouldn't"...
Warfare is littered with war crimes and crimes against humanity, no nation is innocent, no nation immune.
While candidate Obama came to office pledging to end George W Bush’s wars, he leaves office having been at war longer than any president in US history. He is also the only president to serve two complete terms with the nation at war.
After weeks saying the Russians stole the elections for Trump and not putting US - Russia relations in any sort of jeopardy, oh noes, no sabre rattling there.
Now the press is saying, typified by the NYT, but, but:
Hillary Clinton has got her pompoms out cheering it on.
Call it a reprisal if you will, but it is nothing less than an act of war. We are now committed to fighting directly the Assad regime and their allies.
There was no direct attack on the US nor its citizens. The US has joined Russia in becoming directly involved in a civil war, on opposing sides.
The bloody carnage of the last 16 years across N. Africa, the Levant, through Iraq to the borders of India has brought misery to hundreds of millions. The recent war crimes in Syria at the summit of the crimes committed.
The Global arms trade supplying both sides for profit.
Regime change by various nefarious means.
The bombing of hospitals.
The use of banned weapons.
The crime that is pre-emptive war.
The murder of innocents.
Donald Trump’s willingness to embrace Russian disinformation was one of the reasons Russia’s interference in the 2016 election worked, the Senate panel investigating the president’s alleged ties to the country heard on Thursday.
Some thoughts arising from:
Americans unable to separate politics from reality an essay by gjohnsit on the FP.
I have no doubt Trumps believes in his own myths, bigly!
He is so super-smaht that nobody is smahter, hugely!
Couple this with his belief in the art of the con [deal] then we have one easily manipulated individual.
Now a strictly military action.
The Pentagon under President Donald Trump is enjoying greater freedom to run its wars the way it wants -- and not constantly seek White House approval on important decisions.
The ongoing farce
Hair Trump watches a lot of TV, we know that from his twitter account.
Hair Trump then goes on twitter and has a meltdown over what he saw on TV.
Hair Trump then gets Sean Spicer to try and clean up his mess, Sean then makes it worse but a whole lot funnier than the original rant.
1] The FBI are investigating possible Russian interference whether there is/is not.
2] Hair Trump is full of bullshit.
3] Many people are making stuff up [Dead wrong/pants on fire] as they go along.
4] Voting machines were not tampered with anywhere [with respect to this investigation].
5] Government doesn't like leaks/leakers especially when it is soooo transparent already.
Self publicist supremo, Gee Dubya's poodle and well known lying warmongering ass-hole Tony Blair brings you:
Tony Blair is launching a “new policy platform to refill the wide open space in the middle of politics” aimed at combating a “frightening authoritarian populism” that he says is undermining the west’s belief in democracy.
The sense of entitlement, exceptionalism and sense privilege contained within a perversion of the American Dream has reached its logical conclusion.
Reading this story - another version of the MSF Kunduz war crime:
Watching the meltdown of our President on twitter it is clear he gets his fake news from Breitbart and Bannon.
Watching the meltdown of the MSM and the DNC about Russia!
The funny thing about reality is it is damn boring.
