The Riots In France Aren’t Just About Gas Taxes, But About The West’s Decline

While protests and car-burnings are actually common in France, what’s happening now is much worse than usual and will not go away anytime soon. What observers should know is that this is not about fuel prices or Macron’s incompetence; this is about the fall of the West.

Paris Is Burning – EU Press Asks Whether Macron ‘Can’ Continue?

The German tabloid Bild is the bestselling newspaper of the largest economy on the European continent, and thus one of the biggest newspapers being read daily. During the weekend, it normally runs front pages about anything the Germans are interested in, which means that today you would expect Merkel or the Bundesliga (German soccer league) to be the headline.

Unsurprisingly however, they went with the question that many European newspapers are asking today given the three straight Saturdays of rioting seen in Paris.

Mr Macron has been under pressure to defuse popular anger over planned hikes in “green taxes” on diesel and petrol which has morphed into a wider revolt against basic living costs, high taxes, and a sense of state abandonment in suburban and provincial France.

Armistice Day: Trump-Macron smooth over defence spat

Donald Trump and France’s Emmanuel Macron have both said Europe should pay more of its defence costs, a day after the US president lambasted the idea of a European army.

Is Criticizing Terrorism “Mental Illness”?

A 615-page report was recently released, written by an adviser to President Emmanuel Macron, Hakim El Karoui, who is in charge of designing the new institutions of an “Islam of France.” The report defines Islamism as an “ideology totally distinct from Islam” and also never addresses the links between Islamism and terrorism. The report also insists on the urgent need to spread “true Islam” in France and adopt the teaching of Arabic in public high schools.

France – Le Pen, Media Slam President Macron Over ‘Gangsta’-Selfie

Another week, another scandal for French President Macron apparently. The leader of France, desperate to get his tumbling approval rating back up, went together with his wife Brigitte to the Caribbean to visit the youngsters in the French part of Sint-Maarten, a trip some claimed was simply another vacation.

The youngsters apparently are big fans of Macron and all posed for selfies with the French president.

Macron’s Partition of France?

In a confessional book, “A President Shouldn’t Say That…”, published in 2016, a few months before the 2017 French presidential election, France’s then President François Hollande admitted that France has “a problem with Islam. No one doubts it,” he wrote. He wrote as well that France has a problem with veiled women in public and with mass immigration. Then he added: “How can one avoid a partition? Because that is still what is happening: a partition”.

The “partition” about which Hollande was talking was the partition of France — one part for Muslims and another for non-Muslims.
