How the neoliberal establishment tricked the masses again, this time in France

by system failure

We saw the same play in the US election. The mainstream media were silently promoting Donald Trump as the 'anti-establishment candidate'. Add to that the 'extreme' rhetoric of Donald and voilà: you have the perfect trap for the voters.

It looked like no one bothered to think truly rational: how is it possible a billionaire that made his fortune inside the bubble economy of the neoliberal establishment, be an 'anti-establishment' candidate? And the big joke exposed right after his election.

The 'anti-establishment' Donald, actually hired Goldman Sachs to run USA. The 'anti-establishment' Donald signed a bill to deregulate again Wall Street, so that the parasites of the financial mafia to be able to play their games at the expense of the majority, as happened so many times in the past, causing big financial crises. The 'anti-establishment' Donald quickly aligned with the neocon agenda and bombed Syria. In fact, the 'anti-establishment' Donald did even more than the puppet of the establishment, Barack Obama, by provoking dangerously war games in Asia-Pacific. The 'anti-establishment' Donald kept US forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, continued the US interference in Yemen and elsewhere.

So, the comedy staged by the global neoliberal regime was repeated in France during the first round of the French presidential election. The mainstream media, even now are speaking for the collapse of the political establishment, yet they won't tell people that the 'independent centrist' Emmanuel Macron, is actually exactly what the neoliberal establishment wants. An apolitical technocratic puppet approved by the people. A Rothschild banker to take over France. This is 100% victory for the establishment.

Seeing their ratings falling down to the abyss, the two political families that served the establishment for decades in Europe, the Social Democrats and the Popular Right, there was a 'danger' to diverge from the neoliberal agenda in order to attract again voters and re-build their electoral base. So, at the right moment, the elites of the neoliberal regime took the new rabbits out of the hats. In the US the names of the rabbits were Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Guess what are the names of the rabbits in France. That's right: Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen.

Macron is certainly the first priority of the establishment. Not only he comes straight from the banking industry which lies on the top of the pyramid of the financial elites. He is also the new model promoted by the neoliberal regime. A young technocrat without a political party. A post-modern apolitical figure totally compatible to the younger generations who were born and raised according to the completely apolitical culture, built by the regime, especially the last four decades.

If the global neoliberal regime is the Matrix that we live in, Macron is definitely an upgraded version of Agent Smith.

It's funny how the neoliberal ideology is promoted by the propaganda mechanisms as the most 'rational', yet it uses a kind of reverse logic to trick the masses. A billionaire is promoted as 'anti-establishment' in the United States. The political system that serves the establishment collapses in France, yet, the promoted as the 'new', actually serves better the establishment!

This brutal establishment is ready to pull the trigger against anyone who doesn't agree with its most preferred option. The Leftist leader, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, must obey and declare that he supports Macron, otherwise he will be 'crucified' by the media as someone who may indirectly help Le Pen in the second round. The hypocrites of the neoliberal regime will proceed in a psychological bullying against him, by saying that he helps fascism, even if Le Pen is just their reserve. This explains also why Bernie Sanders was forced to endorse Hillary Clinton after his defeat due to the dirty war from the DNC elite.

The worst nightmare for the neoliberal hypocrites would be to see Jean-Luc Mélenchon in the second round against Marine Le Pen. Why? Because they would have to support Le Pen against Mélenchon to protect their interests. They would have been exposed to the people. Yet, now demand from Mélenchon to endorse their primary option Emmanuel Macron against Le Pen. Totally ruthless hypocrites.

Likewise, when the establishment in the US saw with terror that Bernie Sanders was beating Donald Trump by a far more significant percentage than Hillary Clinton, they knew that they had to get rid of him. It was much easier to do it in the primaries with the unfair and undemocratic system of superdelegates and the inside war from DNC. They wouldn't risk to see Bernie at the finals with Trump, where the whole world would watch closely.

Yet, even if Marine Le Pen wins the election, she is just the reserve of the establishment. Historically, the far-right was always the backup of the establishment when things were going wrong.

So, again, the establishment has tricked the voters, this time in France. With Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen in the second round, it's a win-win situation for it.

  1. Are you sure that Melenchon would not become like Tsipras? The far-right parties in Europe are a trap and not actually a threat for EU and EZone. European left is a circus (Syriza, Podemos, etc.)

    1. No, I can't be sure about anything. We make only estimations. No one knows how things could go. In many cases this blog predicted correctly some major future events, but also in other cases it has been proved wrong. That's because we try to make some level of analysis, not prophecy. Anyway, Melenchon is certainly not Tsipras as a personality and France is certainly not Greece. So, not all the cases are the same. Personally, I believe that only a united European Left in power could bring real change in Europe.

    You're analysis is accurate in the sense that the FN was created by socialist Francois Mitterrand to disperse his opponents, center right (known historical fact in France by all politicians and public). The only candidates left by proxy are the ones the oligarchs can control. Francois Fillon must have refused to go along with the programme.

    1. It's glaringly apparent that you believe Sanders, an economic moonbat, was the best choice. The only voters more far removed from Clinton voters are Bernie supporters.

      Still. It appears Carlin was right. The whole "choice" thing is an illusion in the end.

    I have questions:
    1 Did you NOT see that Trump (a stark raving incompetent pu**ygrabbing sexist) was 1298 times WORSE than Clinton, who is an imperfect friend.
    2. It was TRUMP!!! What kind of FUCKING motivation did you NEED???
    3 Are you suffering from Trump Pivot Syndrome?
    As in: "He will be a normal ahwhole, eventually" or "Trump is the same as Clinton"

    Well, how could anyone have known that Trump would be this bad, not only destroying health care and climate change efforts, but also reverse every Obama policy.

    we could not have known that. Therefor, we were right to vote Green or stay home.

It has started: Spain decides permanent UBI for its citizens

Spain appears to be the first country that will implement a permanent form of Universal Basic Income for its citizens. As the Independentreported: [emphasis added]
Spain’s cabinet has approved the creation of a national minimum income, according to a government spokesperson.

Deputy Prime Minister Pablo Iglesias told a news conference on Friday the creation of a minimum income worth €462 (£416.92) a month will target some 850,000 households or 2.5 million people.

The government would pay the monthly stipend and top up existing revenue for people earning less so that they receive at least that minimum amount every month, he said.

The minimum income would increase with the number of family members, up to a maximum of €1,015 (£916.30) each month. The programme would cost the government about €3 billion a year.

Mr Iglesias said: “Today is a historic day for our democracy. Today this government is showing that its political choice is social justice and that it takes the…

Αφού τελείωσαν τα χειροκροτήματα για τους γιατρούς του Εθνικού Συστήματος Υγείας, ο Μητσοτάκης επέστρεψε στην "κανονικότητα" της αποστολής του, που, με λίγα λόγια, είναι η ιδιωτικοποίηση και το ξεπούλημα των πάντων. Έτσι, μετά το διάλειμμα λόγω πανδημίας, φανέρωσε και πάλι το πόσο αδημονεί να οδηγήσει το Εθνικό Σύστημα Υγείας στο δρόμο της ιδιωτικοποίησης.
Όπως αναφέρει το tvxs.gr:

Παρά το «σκληρό μάθημα» που έδωσε η πανδημία στους νεοφιλεύθερους λάτρεις της «αγοράς», φαίνεται πως η κυβέρνηση δεν εγκατέλειψε ποτέ τους αρχικούς σχεδιασμούς της, παρά τον τρόπο που το δημόσιο σύστημα υγεία…

Pompeo’s first public speech as CIA Director, hosted at the Washington DC-based Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank on April 13, 2017, was one of the most paranoid and resentful addresses ever delivered by an agency chief.
The former Republican congressman from Kansas opened his speech with an extended tirade against the “Philip Agees in the world,” referring to the CIA whistleblower who handed over thousands of classified documents to leftist publishers that revealed shocking details of illegal US regime change and assassination …

The neoliberal machine mocks Millennials and Gen Xers through a documentary about Bernie's awful mistreatment by the corporate media!

globinfo freexchange
Now that the "Bernie Sanders" threat for the establishment has been neutralized (for a second time), the neoliberal machine is free to pretend that it cares about the truth.
Kyle Kulinski speaks about a new documentary by VICE about the media bias against Bernie Sanders. Although the doc trailer is pretty impressive, Kulinski starts with a pretty remarkable argument he saw on Twitter:
                         Credit to VICE. Thank you for this documentary. Curious how it released after Bernie dropped out. 

Kulinski finds that the mainstream media still have enough power to neutralize an undesirable candidate, as they did with Bernie, despite the fact that most of the people don't trust them. He also explains the demographics of this year's race for the leadership of the Democratic party.

As he supports, Millennials and Gen Xers overwhelmingly supported Bernie Sanders against the Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation (in which Bernie actually be…

Τα πράγματα φαίνεται να εξελίσσονται σχεδόν όπως τα είχαμε προβλέψει.
Όπως είχαμε επισημάνει ήδη από τα μέσα Απριλίου, στο επόμενο διάστημα αναμένεται να δούμε νέες, αλλεπάλληλες "φουσκωμένες" δημοσκοπήσεις από την φιλοκυβερνητική μηχανή προπαγάνδας, ώστε να προετοιμαστεί ψυχολογικά το κοινό για το επικείμενο αποτέλεσμα των εθνικών εκλογών.
Στις δημοσκοπήσεις αυτές θα βλέπουμε ενδεχομένως την ψαλίδα μεταξύ ΝΔ και ΣΥΡΙΖΑ συνεχώς να μεγαλώνει, με μια ταυτόχρονη πτώση του ποσοστού του κόμματος της αξιωματικής αντιπολίτευσης, σε βαθμό που να δικαιολογεί την στρατηγική του ήττα.  
Ωστόσο, το 20,3% του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, δεν συνιστά στρατηγική ήττα στο βαθμό που επιθυμεί το καθεστώς και η ντόπια ολιγαρχία, εν όψει μάλιστα και απλής αναλογικής. Οπότε θα πρέπει να αναμένουμε στο αμέσως επόμενο διάστημα ένα νέο βομβαρδισμό από δημοσκοπήσεις στις οποίες το ποσοστό του κόμματος της αξιωματικής αντιπολίτευσης θα "ροκανίζεται" σταδιακά, έτσι ώστε να δημιουργηθεί το κ…

Το κίνημα Slow News: η απάντηση στα Fake News?

globinfo freexchange
Στον θαυμαστό καινούργιο κόσμο, ο αβάσταχτος όγκος πληροφοριών που καταναλώνουμε καθημερινά έχει γεννήσει ένα δυστοπικό παράδοξο: την ίδια στιγμή, αμφισβητούμε και πιστεύουμε τα πάντα. Το μυαλό μας έχει βυθιστεί σε μια δίνη από tweets, αναρτήσεις, βίντεο, hoaxes και fake news.
Τα τελευταία χρόνια, σε διάφορα μέρη του πλανήτη, νησίδες αντίστασης έρχονται στην επιφάνεια. Ολιγομελείς ομάδες ανεξάρτητων δημοσιογράφων αγωνίζονται να οικοδομήσουν ένα εναλλακτικό μοντέλο πληροφόρησης, το οποίο βασίζεται σε μια εξαιρετικά απλή αρχή: πρέπει να κόψουμε ταχύτητα. Ένα μαχητικό ντοκιμαντέρ που έχει βαλθεί να αποδείξει ότι η δημοσιογραφία παραμένει ο βασικός πυλώνας της δημοκρατίας.

Part 3 - Journey to “the dark side”
On February 26, 2017, Wikileaks announced the forthcoming release of a major tranche of CIA files revealing details of the agency’s hacking and electronic surveillance tools. One such spying application called “Marble” allowed agency spies to implant code that obfuscated their identity on computers they had hacked. Other files contained evidence of programs that allowed hackers to break into encrypted messaging applications like Signal and Telegram, and to turn Samsung smart TVs into listening devices.

COVID-19 took Chicago black lives first & exposed structural racism

Democracy Now!
The coronavirus pandemic's disproportionate toll on African Americans through the story of Chicago's first 100 recorded deaths. 
A report by ProPublica found that 70 of the first 100 people to die were African American. Black people account for 30% of Chicago's population and 72% of COVID-19 deaths.
ProPublica reporter Adriana Gallardo, who contributed to the report "COVID-19 Took Black Lives First. It Didn't Have To.", says the story paints a picture of "sophisticated structural racism" in Chicago.
