French Elections: Macron versus Le Pen in Run-off. Discredited Socialist Party. A Vote against Neoliberalism

The results seem to be just what the polls have predicted from the start: Emmanuel Macron versus Marine Le Pen.  As if the whole campaign brought us right around to the point of departure.

I would add that a significant result of this campaign is the substitution of a new left represented by Jean-Luc Mélenchon for the totally discredited French Socialist Party, which has betrayed all the hopes of its followers by totally adopting the neoliberal economic policies dictated by the Europe Union. This is a renewed and much more vigorous and original left.

The leaders of the failed Socialist Party are rushing to find a place in Macron’s ill-defined movement, “En Marche!”

French Elections: Macron versus Le Pen in Run-off. Discredited Socialist Party. A Vote against NeoliberalismSo now we are faced with the choice between a fake left – Macron – and a fake “extreme right”: Marine Le Pen.

The plain truth is that Marine Le Pen, of a younger generation than her notorious father Jean-Marie, is simply not the same politically.  She has enthusiastically adopted as her main political advisor and number two in the National Front which she inherited, Florian Philippot, who comes from the patriotic socialist left represented by France’s best statesman of the past generation, Jean-Pierre Chevènement.

This difference seems impossible to explain to people who are stuck in the categories of a past that is not longer pertinent.  Emmanuel Macron is an agent of the globalizing elite, from NATO to Goldman Sachs.

As President, he will confirm French subservience to European Union rules which are destroying the French economy as well as to NATO’s policy of war in the Middle East and hostility to Russia.  Marine Le Pen prefers a policy of peace.  I am waiting to learn from my critics how she is the “fascist” whom we must all oppose.

    She will be the same as Trump. She will still help the rebels. Nothing is gonna change.

    She’s just an other anti Europe populist. I used to support them , now I know they’re also full of crap. I live in the Eu and I think its fine as it is now. My only concern is the foreign policy of the Eu , their attitude towards Russia and Syria and their relationship with the Saudie’s and the qatari’s. That has to change in my opinion.

    • SnowCatzor

      No, Le Pen is much more convicted in her beliefs than Trump is. The French government is also not in total worship of NATO and its goals, unlike the American state. Even under the current government they have cooperated to a small degree with Russia on Syria, and Le Pen would expand that considerably.

      You can’t judge Le Pen on a single broken-promise by Trump. Besides it’s not like Trump has gone to war with Syria, his strike was likely just a one-off move designed to give any future threats of action (in North Korea for example) extra credibility.

  • Attrition47

    No, the categories of right and left are fundamental; the nonce left Communists and Socialists and the nonce right, fascists and nazis are variations on a liberal theme. There is no extreme centre only a fatuus pantomime of rightist carbuncles on the same statist arse. Only anarchists are fundamentally different from this shower of shite.

  • JSmith

    Le Pen will be as much for “peace” as Trump professed to be. The reality of having a racist nationalist perspective will be to engage in MENA wars to an even greater degree. It’s moronic not to see this

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      I was under the impression that internationalist-were-racist.
      Protecting ethnic native indigenous tribal peoples ancestral home lands is the anti-racist thing to do. Le Pen is anti-racist. She supports everyone’s indigenous lands for the indigenous people. Anyone wanting to move to France is a racist-surpremisist-bigot bent on genocide. Like the racist-Moors did to my indigenous ancestral tribal peoples.
      Living in lands that your forefathers did not live in 100 generations ago is racist-supremacy.

      Le Pen is not like Trump, her family is not Jewish.
      Trumps family is Jewish, and Zionist. Zionist are always racist against all goyims in all goyims ancestral home lands.

    • Jonathan Cohen

      That’s because ISIS and AlQaeda are real enemies and they are all over MENA. Le Pen’s peace is with Russia and perhaps Assad.

  • El Diablo

    Fillon voters will decide all. Melanchon voters probably will no vote :D

  • FlorianGeyer

    This is a chance for the people of France to preserve what is left of this great countries heritage and to start the clean up of the Multi Cultural Sewer that has burst in the countries of Europe and flooded many cities .

    Marine Le Pen is the voice of tradition and Christian values.

    Macron is the voice of the Rothschild’s, un-elected Eurocrat,s and chaos. Macron is also a homo-sexual.

    France does not deserve a Male Elitest Queen as president.

    France desperately needs Marine Le Pen who will again make the Streets and Avenues of France safe for Women and Girls to walk down without being intimidated by Muslim men.

    • Jonathan Cohen

      Why the hell would gays ally themselved to muslims??????

  • Gabriel Hollows

    Make no mistake, Le Pen is probably the only ‘good’ choice here. But do not for a second doubt she will be any different from the US’s Trump. She did, after all, kick out her own father. For not being kosher enough, no less!

  • Bob

    Macron is a complete Stooge.
    Having seen the unexpected 2016 Trump US win, and hedging against an overall electoral mood for an outsider candidate, the French establishment have put up Macron as their ‘independent’. Being picked straight out of former government economics department and Goldman Sachs…there will be no drastic surprises in policy from this state sanctioned ‘independent’.
    Macron’s ‘party’ is a contrivance designed to specifically counter and neutralize Le Pen’s position and appeal of being outside the establishment two party platform. Macron is a pure ‘independent’ political marketing exercise – without any actual independent substance.
    The establishment well know that a Le Pen victory would be seismic and potentially fatal populist shift against the Neo-Liberal EU project. That French establishment on both side of politics are massively invested in maintaining and expanding, Macron is their substantial political investment to stop that populist shift occurring.

    • abuqahwa

      Very good summary, I note the establishment MSM across Europe immediately ran their false narrative by completely ignoring the resurgent support for genuine left JL Menechon and demonizing FN as ” hard/far/extreme right” – same in Germany where AfD is always described as neo-Nazi/extreme right etc…. The MSM media has become a shrill propaganda organ of the establishment across Europe but the Brexit result and Corbyn defiant shows there is still a chance Marine can win, if FN can mobilize undecided voters on anti-NATO/EU issues ?

  • Garry Compton

    Excussssse me – this NWO dude Macron just starts a new party last year and is now top runner? It was never about Russia – it was about Israel – Period.

  • Sadde

    can you ask Jacques Chirac to come back?

  • Peter Moy

    Now the gang attack against Le Pen starts. France will now choose whether it wants to remain a slave to the arrogant, 3rd rate bureaucrats in Brussels, a new home to the migrant invasion chaos and continue a foreign policy of perpetual war in a stagnant economy by electing the puppet Macron. The alternative is Le Pen who wants no more of the EU and and will focus on domestic ills in a stagnant economy.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Marine Le Pen will not win because she throu the election.
    She tried sucking up to the Jews, and they were like “yes Goyim now you have a chance” they were pulling her chain.
    She could have won easily, all she had to do was promise all of Palestine to the Palestinians and half of Frances Muslims would have voted for her. She had to promise that France would no longer recognize Israel as a country, and she would have won instantly.
    Now when the second round of elections happen, she will not break 25%.
    – Melenchon was an exception. He was largely exiled from high political society due to his ardent anti-Zionism. He scored 19.6%!!! If Marine Le Pen has been ardent anti-Zionist she would be able to gain that 19.6% and that with her own would put her well above 40%.
    But now she cannot go back, she has already pledged her soul to the international Christ-killers.

    France is going to get Macron who worked for the Rothschild bank!!! Could this be any worse?
    Now France will go along and attack Iran, because the international-Jewish-bank-Rothschild needs to subdue every nation who is independent of their banks, to assimilate into the one world Jewish monopoly.

      Anti racist I agree but Lepen can still do all that now as
      the Jews have betrayed her as their did their ally and stupid patsy Hitler. If
      she has any brains and guts she can now betray them and be the Joan of Arc of
      modern France. She needs to remember the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

      Hitler was a Zionist patsy and the father of Israel and he hated white people
      as he killed over 20 million innocent Russians alone who were white, for
      his racist, supremacist, Jewish, banker, masters, who paid for his election. Look up the Haavara agreement.

      If when Hitler invaded the Soviet Union, he had restored the Tsar and the democracies there
      only going after Yagoda, Stalin etc the Jewish death squads who killed 65 million
      innocent Soviets and their Zionist genocide machine, then you could say Hitler
      had some good qualities but he did not, and he was the obedient collaborator
      and lap dog to satanic Jew and their murder machine..

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        I agree with you on Le Pen.
        The Holodmor was going on before Adolf was elected. How can you turn a blind eye to that?
        You know millions of Germans were invited to live in Russia hundreds of years earlier, then they were being genocided in Russia and Ukraine and Poland.
        “For every action their is an equal and opposite reaction”
        You are arguing with logic. What comes around goes around.
        The enemy was not Russians, it was only Russians who sided with the Red Jewish beast who first committed genocide against ethnic Germans.
        Read history before you put the blame on someone who was a very late player in the game.
        You say it is ok for Russians to wipe out millions of ethnic Germans, but then Germans elect a leader because of it and you blame him?
        You have chronology wrong.
        You need to place world events in their correct chronological order.

          I agree with you, you are right but I am also right. The red beast was the Jewish racist supremacist beast which killed over 60 million innocent Soviet citizens including the Germans you mention 90% by Jews led by Yagoda. Read about it as it has been banned in what was once the west which is probably why you don’t know about it. Even Jews admit it now see the links. Russians did not side with racist supremacist Jews which is why the Jews killed so many of them.

          Yagoda the Jew and his murdering Jewish death squads the greatest mass murderers of the 20th century over 65 million killed.

          “Whole population strata were eliminated: Independent farmers, ethnic
          minorities, members of the bourgeoisie, senior officers, intellectuals,
          artists, labor movement activists, “opposition members” who were defined
          completely randomly, and countless members of the Communist party
          itself.

          “Lenin, Stalin, and their successors could not have carried out their
          deeds without wide-scale cooperation of disciplined ‘terror officials,’
          cruel interrogators, snitches, executioners, guards, judges, perverts,
          and many bleeding hearts who were members of the progressive Western Left and were deceived by the Soviet regime of horror and even provided it with a kosher certificate.

          Lenin signed a decree calling for the establishment of The All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage, also known as Cheka. Its organizational structure was changed every few years, as were its names: From Cheka to GPU, later to NKVD, and later to KGB.

          “His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system. After
          Stalin no longer viewed him favorably, Yagoda was demoted and executed, and was replaced as chief hangman in 1936 by Yezhov, the “bloodthirsty dwarf.” The Jew Genrikh Yagoda, director of the NKVD, the Soviet Union’s Stalin-era security and intelligence agency.
          “Yezhov was not Jewish but was blessed with an active Jewish wife. In his book Stalin: Court of the Red Star, Jewish historian Sebag Montefiore writes that during the darkest period of terror, when the Communist killing machine worked in full force, Stalin was surrounded by beautiful, young Jewish women.

          “We cannot know with certainty the number of deaths Cheka was responsible for in its various manifestations, but the number is surely at least 20 million, including victims of the forced collectivization, the hunger, large purges, expulsions, banishments, executions, and mass death at Gulags.

          In 2006, a remarkable article—and admission—appeared in the Israeli news source Ynet News. Titled “Stalin’s Jews” and
          written by Jewish columnist Sever Plocker, this piece confirmed that terrible crimes which Jewish Communists had committed under Stalin.
          “We must not forget that some of greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish,” Plocker started out by saying. He went on to make a number of startling confessions:

          “Here’s a particularly forlorn historical date: Almost 90 years ago, between the 19th and 20th of December 1917, in the midst of the Bolshevik revolution and civil war, Lenin signed a decree calling for the establishment of The All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage, also known as Cheka.

          “Within a short period of time, Cheka became the largest and cruelest state security organization. Its organizational structure was changed every few years, as were its names: From Cheka to GPU, later to
          NKVD, and later to KGB.

          “We cannot know with certainty the number of deaths Cheka was responsible for in its various manifestations, but the number
          is surely at least 20 million, including victims of the forced
          collectivization, the hunger, large purges, expulsions, banishments,
          executions, and mass death at Gulags.

          “Whole population strata were eliminated: Independent farmers, ethnic minorities, members of the bourgeoisie, senior officers, intellectuals, artists, labor movement activists, “opposition members” who were defined completely randomly, and countless members of the Communist party itself.

          “In his new, highly praised book The War of the World, Historian Niall Ferguson writes that no revolution in the history of mankind devoured its children with the same unrestrained appetite as did the Soviet revolution. In his book on the Stalinist purges, Tel Aviv University’s Dr. Igal Halfin writes that Stalinist violence was unique in that it was
          directed internally.

          “Lenin, Stalin, and their successors could not have carried out their deeds without wide-scale cooperation of disciplined ‘terror officials,’ cruel interrogators, snitches, executioners, guards, judges, perverts, and many bleeding hearts who were members of the progressive Western
          Left and were deceived by the Soviet regime of horror and even provided it with a kosher certificate.

          “And us, the Jews? An Israeli student finishes
          high school without ever hearing the name Genrikh Yagoda, the greatest
          Jewish murderer of the 20th Century, the GPU’s deputy commander and the founder and commander of the NKVD.

          “Yagoda diligently implemented Stalin’s collectivization orders and is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people.

          “His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system. After Stalin no longer viewed him favorably, Yagoda was demoted and executed, and was replaced as chief hangman in 1936 by Yezhov, the “bloodthirsty dwarf.” The Jew Genrikh Yagoda, director of the NKVD, the Soviet Union’s Stalin-era security and intelligence agency.
          “Yezhov was not Jewish but was blessed with an active Jewish wife. In his book Stalin: Court of the Red Star, Jewish historian Sebag Montefiore writes that during the darkest period of terror, when the Communist killing machine worked in full force, Stalin was surrounded by beautiful, young Jewish women.
          “Stalin’s close associates and loyalists included member of the Central Committee and Politburo Lazar Kaganovich. Montefiore characterizes him as the “first Stalinist” and adds that those starving to death in Ukraine, an unparalleled tragedy in the history of human kind, did not move Kaganovich.

          “Many Jews sold their soul to the devil of the
          Communist revolution and have blood on their hands for eternity. We’ll mention
          just one more: Leonid Reichman, head of the NKVD’s special department and
          the organization’s chief interrogator, who was a particularly cruel sadist.

          Yagoda (center) inspecting the construction of the
          Moscow-Volga canal, built by slave labor from the Gulags.

          “In 1934, according to published statistics, 38.5 percent of those
          holding the most senior posts in the Soviet security apparatuses were of Jewish
          origin. Even if we deny it, we cannot escape the Jewishness of ‘our hangmen,’
          who served the Red Terror with loyalty and dedication from its establishment.
          After all, others will always remind us of their origin.”

          The Gulags: Jewish-Run Concentration Camps

          As
          mentioned above, the infamous Soviet Gulags were under the direct control of
          the Jew Yagoda. He was not the only such Jew involved in the running of
          these camps, in which millions were interned and nearly 1.4 million died.

          The
          most famous revelation about the Jewish nature of the Gulags was that of famous
          dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Speaking from personal experience as a
          Gulag prisoner, Solzhenitsyn gave a candid account of Jews in charge of the
          Soviet prison camps in his book, Two Hundred Years Together.

          According
          to his observations, Jews made up a clear preponderance in the Gulag
          administration and in the early Bolshevist government, saying that of the 22
          ministers in the first Soviet government three were Russian, one Georgian,
          one Armenian and 17 were Jews.
          In addition, he points out, from personal experience once again, that “two
          thirds of the Kiev Cheka” (secret police) were Jews.

          In
          1937, another book appeared in Germany called Jewish-Run Concentration Camps
          in the Soviet Union, which revealed that Communist Jews were the commandants of
          11 out of the 12 main Gulags.

          I forgot to highlight.

          In 1937,
          another book appeared in Germany called Jewish-Run Concentration Camps in
          the Soviet Union, which revealed that Communist Jews were the commandants
          of 11 out of the 12 main Gulags.

          11 of the 12 Gulag extermination camp commanders were not
          Jesuits Nick.

          Jews not Jesuits made up a clear preponderance in the Gulag administration
          and in the early Bolshevist government, saying that of the 22 ministers in
          the first Soviet government three were Russian, one Georgian,
          one Armenian and 17 were Jews..
          In addition, he points out, from personal experience once again, that “two
          thirds of the Kiev Cheka” (secret police) were Jews. Two thirds Jewish
          not Jesuits.

          This is what I call evidence of the best Nick. Let see
          some Jesuit evidence that is recent not 500 years ago.

          Here is your chance to prove me wrong Nick. I can provide
          vast amounts of info and evidence of the quality to be admissible in court,
          to back this stuff up no problem.

    The real divide is not left vs. right, that divide is dead in all but name only. The real divide is between the winners of globalization and the losers of globalization. Unfortunately neither of these groups are served well by their politicians. Those who benefit from globalization may do well now, but international capital is fickle and whatever benefits you may reap from globalization may change overnight when bankers and captains of industry decide somewhere else maybe more profitable for them. And then you join the ranks of the losers.

    As for the losers, they are not served well by their new chosen leaders. For closing borders does not create wealth, does not create trade, does not create jobs. Because if all countries close their borders everybody loses. We saw that during the Great Depression. And you can’t subsidize failing industries. The UK tried that in the 60’s and 70’s and became the Sick Man of Europe.

    In the end France has to become competitive again. But in a smart way. That’s also fair. Quite a miracle to ask for.

    I really hope she wins, she has to win if France is to survive demographically; and therefore culturally. Macron will just accelerate France’s demographic replacement from the third-world, as he is just another nation-hating globalist.

    Sadly I suspect she won’t win though, most people are too cowardly to vote against the devil they know (Macron). Plus their are too many foreigners in France who’ll always vote against ethnic French interests, in favour of their continued ‘reverse colonization’.
