Quite a weekend with the death of former President George HW Bush. But I want to focus on the events that are getting little coverage here in the US.
Western Europe is exploding. Rioting in Paris over President Emmanuel Macron’s economic policies, which favors rich Parisians versus the people living in the countryside.
TV reports showed protesters chanting. “We want Trump,” while marching amongst burning cars.
Smaller but widespread rioting is taking place in Brussels and Germany with no reports in major media.
While western media point to Macron raising gas prices to combat environmental concerns of the rich, which don’t rely on their cars as much as the underlying cause of the protests.
The gilets jaunes or “yellow vests” crowd marched on the Arc de Triomphe and ironically set fire to dozens of cars harkens back to the Revolution Vive La Resistance that ultimately brought about Bastille Day and then end of royalty in France.
The French Revolution came about because of a tone-deaf monarchy raised taxes on basic food staples like bread and cheese of the citizenry. The suburban and rural population need to be able to travel by car, since the government has neglected to develop provincial alternate travel.
To raise the French Revolution is not out of the blue or purple actually, since the liberal left attempted to stage its own version of Revolution — Vive La Resistance — against President Trump in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election.
However the next two days in Washington will be about getting information to prosecute the resistance movement of Democrats conspiring to work against Trump getting elected.
Monday we have former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Tuesday ex-FBI Director James Comey testifying before House committees on the abuses of the FISA court.
Federal attorney John Huber was slated Wednesday to update the House committee on his investigation of the Clinton Foundation, but that will need to be rescheduled since it’s the Federal holiday to mourn the death of President Bush.
Vive la difference between western Europe and the US. America has Donald Trump in the White House and the rioters have a Hillary Clinton-type leader, who have a globalist agenda, which screws the population and they have had enough with that.
