–  French Unemployment Hits Record High: 80th Consecutive Month Of Rising Joblessness (ZeroHedge, June 24, 2015):

While French president Hollande is busy “grilling” (in the words of The Local) president Obama over the latest US “spying on its allies” snafu, the French economy continues to deteriorate and according to the latest French labor ministry data, in May the number of French jobseekers rose by another 0.5%, or 16,200, to 3.552 million, 10k more than expected, and a new all time high.

The number was 5%, or 168,500 greater, compared to a year ago as the so-called European recovery has yet to have a positive impact on what is supposed to be Europe’s second strongest economy.

Most troubling: this is the 80th consecutive month of increasing Y/Y unemployment, yet stocks are delighted of course.

Moscow Furious After Both Belgium And France Freeze Russian State Assets (ZeroHedge, June 18, 2015):

Russia has summoned the Belgian ambassador to Moscow and threatened to “respond in kind” after bailiffs instructed nearly 50 Belgian companies to disclose Russian state assets, a move which reportedly sets the stage for the seizure of Russian property in connection with the disputed $50 billion Yukos verdict. Essentially, Russia was required to submit a plan for a €1.6 billion payment pursuant to the ECHR decision by June 15, and because Moscow did not do so, Belgium will attempt to extract the payment on its own.

French minister calls on shops to stop selling Monsanto’s Roundup (Reuters, June 14, 2015):

French Environment and Energy Minister Segolene Royal said on Sunday she would ask garden shops to stop selling Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller as part of a wider fight against pesticides seen as potentially harmful to humans.

“France must be offensive on stopping pesticides,” Royal told France 3 television. “I have asked garden shops to stop sales of Monsanto’s Roundup.”

She did not specify how she would enforce this. Continue reading »

French software company and partner of Mistral maker DCNS, Dassault Systemes, said that it is ready to provide Russia’s shipbuilding industry with 3D modeling tools.

France’s National Front Party Joins UK In Call For EU In/Out Referendum (ZeroHedge, May 30, 2015):

Just days after David Cameron’s “I promise a referendum” victory in the British elections, which JPMorgan warns now looks likely to happen as early as 2016, France’s far-right National Front party has called for an in/out referendum on the EU at the same time as the UK holds its vote. As EUObserver reports, Florian Philippot, an MEP and the party’s deputy head wrote to French President Francois Hollande this week, “the time has come to ask everybody in Europe Yes or No – if they want sovereignty to decide on their own future.”

With French daily Le Figaro, in an Ifop poll published on Friday, finding 62% of French people would vote No to the EU constitution again if they were asked the same question as 10 years ago, the question of a French referendum is serious for the future of the EU.  As EUObserver reports, Continue reading »

French Unemployment Surges By Most In 7 Months To New Record High (ZeroHedge, June 1, 2015):

Is it any wonder Marin Le Pen’s Front National Party is a) leading in the polls, and b) pushing for an EU in/out referendum? Whatever it is that France (and/or Europe) is doing, is not working. Despite all the promises, French unemployment has risen practically non-stop for 4 years and just hit a new all-time record…

Russia won’t be taking Mistral warships from France – official (RT, May 26, 2015):

Russia won’t try and get its ill-fated Mistral helicopter carriers from France, a Russian official has announced. Moscow and Paris are set to discuss damages to be paid by France for welching on the deal.

“Russia won’t be taking them [the Mistral vessels]. That’s a fact. There’s just a single discussion underway at the moment – on the amount of money that should be returned to Russia,” Oleg Bochkarev, a deputy chairman of the Russian governmental Military-Industrial Commission, is cited as saying by RBC.

The negotiations have been “transferred into the commercial field” and “major efforts are being made today” for Russia to receive damages, Bochkarev told RIA Novosti.

France reportedly offered €748 million as compensation, but Russia turned down the proposal, calling it “laughable.” Continue reading »

Following “Terrorist-Fighting” Ban On Cash, France Passes “Le Patriot Act” (ZeroHedge, May 5, 2015):

In its efforts to ‘protect’ its citizens from terrorists, France deemed it necessary in March to “fight against the use of cash and anonymity in the French economy,”  and drastically reduced the public’s freedom and privacy to spend. Today, that freedom and privacy took another blow as the French government passed “Le Patriot Act” dramatically beefing up the government’s spying powers.

‘Greece Won’t See A Cent Of The GREAT BAILOUT’ (Telegraph) … It’s All For The Banksters!

Shame On Europe For Betraying And Raping Greece For Its Bankster Masters:

When we casually use a term like “bailout”, it is important to remember that it is not people who are being bailed out, or at least not the Greek people. The bailout will not save a single Greek life. The opposite is the case. What is being “bailed out” is the global financial system, including the banks, hedge funds and pension funds of the other EU member states, and it is the Greek people who are being ordered to pay – in money, time, physical pain, hopelessness and missed educational opportunities. The relatively neutral, even stoic, term “austerity”, is a gross insult to the Greek people. This is not austerity; at best it is callousness.

Max Keiser on Greece: ‘The IMF is a Financial Mafia’:

The only solution for Greece is to arrest the Goldman Sachs bankers immediately and all those involved in the fabrication of Greek economic data in 2000, when you became a member of the eurozone. The next step is to nationalize all banks like Sweden did in 1993. The International Monetary Fund is that last thing you need. You will lose your sovereignty. It exercises terrorism. You will be raped in such a way, that it will be the worst pain you have ever felt.

If someone burns down your house in order to sell you charcoal, would you consider this logical? That is exactly what Goldman Sachs did to the Greek economy. They burned you down like arsonists and then they tell you not to worry they’ll give you charcoal. It’s outrageous. The IMF has said that it can provide Greece with help. The Wall Street investment hedge funds are attacking Greece’s bond market so that the Greek economy collapses. And they’re doing this for a simple reason; to force the Greek people to ask for help from the IMF. The IMF will say, we came because you asked for our help. Wall Street bankers work very closely with the IMF. It’s a financial mafia and the hedge funds are the assassins. Research conducted on Goldman Sachs in the USA and in Europe show how big a mafia it is. They are involved in illegal activity throughout the world.

Eurozone didn’t allow Greece to bankrupt in 2010 (The Real Agenda News, April 22, 2015):

French and German banks were weakened due to their heavy investment in Greek debt.

According to the documentary titled “On the Trail of the Troika“, the euro states prevented Greece from going bankrupt in order to protect German and French banks. Those banks, research shows, were exposed to almost €40 billion in Greek debt and were afraid to lose the money.

Not only did Germany and France not allow Greece to declare bankruptcy, but also used their taxpayers’ money to finance the never ending Greek debt financial system. Continue reading »

India Scraps Major Arms Purchase with France, Inks Major Deal with Russia (Russia Insider, April 15, 2015):

India’s Congress Party has canceled most of its order of 126 French Rafales and opted for a large order of Russian Sukhois

This article originally appeared at Daily of the Breton State. It was translated by Tom Winter at Fort Russ

India has essentially annulled it gigantic arms contract with France for the purchase and combined construction of 126 Rafale fighter planes; the Indian Prime Minister agreed to buy only

36 of them during his visit to Paris last week, a responsible government source stated. Instead, India will buy 127 fifth generation Russian fighter jets.

More Hard Proof Germanwings Crash is a Hoax (NODISINFO, March 30, 2015):

With revelations from our posters

Regarding Germanwings, there can be no other possibility other than the fact that this was a fake, that is a staged crash. It cannot be real. There were purportedly 150 passengers on-board. Where are they, and/or where are their body parts? It would be a macabre scene. Why is no one reacting to it?

It was stated, here, that by no means does the crash scene represent an entire plane. It was also stated that there was no inferno, no blackening, no char: no spotty fires and/or billowing smoke. Such a jet would have exploded on impact. Where is the expected fire-related damage? Where was the necessary smolder? Is there only this, and that’s it?

germanwingshoaxcrash2

Just whitish-appearing smoke, no fire, from a pyrotechnic artificially placed charge? Where is the burning jet fuel, with its black, acrid smoke?

The question was raised, “Where are the virtually indestructible titanium-based engines? This was an Airbus 320. The engines used on such planes are considerable:

Hard Proof Germanwings Crash is a Hoax – Orchestrated by Zionists  (NODISINFO, March 27, 2015):

UPDATED: March 28, 2015

Revelation due to the astute work of numerous posters for this hoax, which does not hold up as a real plane crash under close scrutiny. Full credit to them realizing this as a hoax immediately.

Regarding the purported Germanwings crash of an Airbus 340 no sense can be made of it. Who would purposely drive an airplane into a mountain, even if this could be done? It is relatively easy to prove the hoax. This is through the debris pattern. It does not have the pattern of a real spontaneous, catastrophic crash. Rather, it has the pattern of staging, as if it was merely dropped there or placed there by a litany of staging agents.

1984 George Orwell

1984: France Will Counter Terrorist Attacks on Free Speech by… Attacking Free Speech? (The Daily Sheeple, March 18, 2015):

George Orwell wasn’t psychic; he was a time traveler, and we’re permanently falling down the rabbit hole of 1984.

If you live in France, your right to visit certain websites has just been terminated by the almighty government.

Why? Because terrorism.

According to a report by Glenn Greenwald, “What’s Scarier: Terrorism, or Governments Blocking Websites in Its Name?,” the French Interior Ministry has now ordered that five websites be blocked by the government because they have officially been accused of promoting terrorism.

And this is just the beginning.

Greenwald explains: Continue reading »

From the article:

“The law would enforce fines of up to $79,000 US for any breaches, with up to six months in jail for any staff involved, French Socialist Party legislator Olivier Veran, who wrote the amendments, told newspaper Le Parisien.”


France Set To Ban Skinny Girls In Show Of EU Solidarity (ZeroHedge, March 18, 2015):

Who says the eurozone doesn’t project a united front? Even as misguided analysts on the sell side throw out reckless language like “redenomination risk” and irresponsibly suggest that the EMU is in fact nothing more than a “collection of fixed exchange rates,” evidence abounds that the core and the periphery are most assuredly on the same page. If you need proof, just look at the convergence in EMU member policy as it relates to the weight of runway models.

Anti-Dollar-Alliance

It’s Happening – More US Allies Join The Anti-Dollar Alliance (Sovereign Man, March 18, 2015):

The United States government just went from “Please, baby, don’t leave me,” to frustrated threats and whining.

After the UK announced it will join new China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) as a founding member late last week, Germany, France and Italy decided yesterday to follow Britain’s lead and join as well.

Welcome to the beginning of the end of the US dollar’s domination. It’s happening.

For the past few decades America was the undisputed global economic and political superpower.

The entire world happily used the US dollar, and hence, the US banking system. More importantly, the world happily placed its trust in the US government.

But there’s a limit to how irresponsible, reckless, and threatening you can be. Eventually such behavior catches up to you.

That time has now come. Continue reading »

China-USA

–  America’s European “Allies” Desert Obama, Join China-led Infrastructure Bank (ZeroHedge, March 17, 2015):

It appears the sea of de-dollarization has reached the shores of Europe. With Australia and UK having already moved in the direction of joining the China-led AIIB, The FT reports that France, Germany, and Italy have now all agreed to join the development bank as ‘pivot to Asia’ appears to be Plan B for Europe. As Greg Sheridan previously noted, “the saga of the China Bank is almost a textbook case of the failure of Obama’s foreign policy,” but as The FT concludes, the European decisions represent a significant setback for the Obama administration, which has argued that western countries could have more influence over the workings of the new bank if they stayed together on the outside. As Forbes notes, this leaves Obama with 3 uncomfortable options

As The FT reports,

France, Germany and Italy have all agreed to follow Britain’s lead and join a China-led international development bank, according to European officials, delivering a blow to US efforts to keep leading western countries out of the new institution. Continue reading »

The Militarization Of France Is Not Temporary: “10,000 Troops To Remain On The Streets” (ZeroHedge, March 11, 2015):

Who could have seen this coming? The French government, having deployed military to its streets during the attacks by Islamic extremists last month, has  – just as every other government in the world in the new normal – decided that this temporary militarization of French streets is now permanent. As RT reports, President Hollande has decided to “maintain the level of the army on the national territory at 10,000 troops,” with a total of 7,000 troops monitoring (and protecting) religious buildings.

militarization of French streets is now permanent

As RT reports,

As the threat of attacks by Islamist extremists remains high in France, President Francois Hollande has decided to continue the deployment of 10,000 troops on the streets across the country.

“The threat of terrorist attack against our country remains high. The head of state has decided to maintain the level of the army on the national territory at 10,000 troops in support of security forces from the Interior Ministry,” Hollande’s office said in a statement after a meeting of senior ministers, AFP reported.

Europe Fractures: France Pivots To Putin, Cyprus Offers Moscow Military Base, Germany-US Splinter On Ukraine (ZeroHedge, Feb 8, 2015):

Following yesterday’s summary of the utter farce that the Minsk Summit/Ukraine “peace” deal talks have become, the various parties involved appear to be fracturing even faster today. The headlines are coming thick and fast but most prescient appears to be: Despite John Kerry’s denial of any split between Germany and US over arms deliveries to Ukraine, German Foreign Minister Steinmeier slammed Washington’s strategy for being “not just risky but counterproductive.” But perhaps most significantly is France’s continued apparent pivot towards Russia… Following Francois Hollande’s calls for greater autonomy for Eastern Ukraine, former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has come out in apparent support of Russia (and specifically against the US), “we are part of a common civilization with Russia,” adding, “the interests of the Americans with the Russians are not the interests of Europe and Russia.” Even NATO appears to have given up hope of peace as Stoltenberg’s statements show little optimism and the decision by Cyprus to allow Russia to use its soil for military facilities suggests all is not at all well in the European ‘union’.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier doubled down on Germany’s rejection of weapons deliveries to Ukraine in a speech here Sunday… Continue reading »

The newsflow over the past several days was progressing much as expected: any time Greece demanded a bailout renegotiation (or termination), and an end to the Troika, Germany just said “Nein”, most recently on Saturday when Merkel told Hamburger Abendblatt‘s “that banks and creditors had already forgiven a considerable amount of Greece’s debt and that she rejected any further concessions. “There has already been voluntary debt forgiveness by private creditors, banks have already slashed billions from Greece’s debt,” Merkel told the paper, adding: “I do not envisage fresh debt cancellation.” She added that “Europe will continue to show its solidarity with Greece, as with other countries hard hit by the crisis, if these countries carry out reforms and cost-saving measures.” Continue reading »
