The President Of France Wants Eurozone Members To Transfer Their Sovereignty To A United States Of Europe (Economic Collapse,. July 19, 2015):

The President of France has come up with a very creative way of solving the European debt crisis.  On Sunday, a piece authored by French President Francois Hollande suggested that the ultimate solution to the problems currently plaguing Europe would be for every member of the eurozone to transfer all of their sovereignty to a newly created federal government.  In other words, it would essentially be a “United States of Europe”.  This federal government would have a prime minister, a parliament, a federal budget and a federal treasury.  Presumably, the current national governments in Europe would continue to function much like state governments in the U.S. do.  In the end, there may be some benefits to such a union – particularly for the weaker members of the eurozone.  But at what cost would those benefits come?

The Greek Job - Varoufakis-car

Varoufakis’ Stunning Accusation: Schauble Wants A Grexit “To Put The Fear Of God” Into The French (ZeroHedge, July 10, 2015):

Earlier we reported that Yanis Varoufakis, seemingly detained by “family reasons” would be unable to join his fellow parliamentarians and personally vote in what is likely the most important vote of Syriza’s administration: the one in which he and his party capitulate to the Troika and vote “Yes” to the proposal he and Tsipras urged everyone to reject just one week ago.

Subsequently, it was made clear what these family reasons are: Continue reading »

France and Russia Mistral Deal: $1.3 Billion Settlement Reached Over Aircraft Carriers (Internation Business Times, July 10, 2015):

Russia and France have reached a tentative agreement on compensation payable to Moscow as a result of Paris’ decision to cancel the delivery of two Mistral helicopter carriers. The cancellation of the Mistral deal reportedly will cost France about $1.3 billion. The agreement still must be signed by both Russian President Vladimir Putin and French President Francois Hollande, according to media reports. Continue reading »

Marine Le Pen, Anti Euro French Presidential Frontrunner, Applauds Greek Victory Over “EU Oligarchy” (ZeroHedge, July 5, 2015):

Ten days ago, before Varoufakis even announced his stunning break of negotiations with the Troika and proceeded to engage in a referendum which perhaps more symbolically than anything else just said a resounding “No” to the status quo, we said to Forget Grexit, “Madame Frexit” Says France Is Next: French Presidential Frontrunner Wants Out Of “Failed” Euro.

Because while the ECB could at least in theory contain the Grexit fallout with a few hundred billion in bond (and stock, since Europe is pretty much fresh out of bonds it can monetize) purchases, it will not be able to halt the contagion once it spreads to Italy, Spain and Portugal. But once it reaches France, and Marine Le Pen engages in the same type of negotiations with the Troika as Greece just did, it’s all over. Continue reading »

French Economy In “Dire Straits”, “Worse Than Anyone Can Imagine”, Leaked NSA Cable Reveals (ZeroHedge, June 29, 2015):

Earlier today Wikileaks released a new batch of NSA intercepts among which one in particular stands out: an intercepted communication which reveals that then French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici believes the French economic situation was far worse, as of mid-2012, than perceived.

Specifically, Moscovici who served as French finance minister until 2014 and then became European commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs, Taxation and Customs, used some very colorful language, i.e., the French economic situation was “worse than anyone [could] imagine and drastic measures [would] have to be taken in the next two years”.  Continue reading »

Recovery!

–  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 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 »

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: 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.

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 »
