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.

Pro-Trump capitalists fire the first serious warning shot in Capitol

globinfo freexchange In June, 2020, we wrote that, the whole picture indicates that all these far-right militia groups together with a significant part the US police force are forming a loony army of Trump defenders, driven by racism, ultra-conservative ideas and far-right extreme conspiracy theories. These fanatics have become so loyal to their leader - who happens to be the President of the United States - that they will do whatever it takes to see him in charge for another four years. As Trump's popularity has taken a downturn, his "brigades" are ready to take action in case he loses November's election. Especially if he loses marginally. Previously, we explained that, what we see now in the United States with Trump, is a counter-attack by the part of the American capital against the globalist faction. The faction that is primarily consisted by the liberal plutocracy . Therefore, as the capitalist class splits, the capitalists around Trump are now taking with the

The DNC mafia is about to complete the process of assimilation of the progressives, exactly as predicted

globinfo freexchange   Since already July 2018, we identified an immediate mobilization by the corporate media in the US to force the progressive wing of the Democratic party comply with the DNC neoliberal norm. In the specific example , we analyzed how the corporate pundit forced the new star of the progressive wing, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, to literally declare loyalty to the DNC corporate "chief-baroness" Nancy Pelosi. After that, we saw an unexplained and bizarre contribution of both Bernie Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez to the establishment pro-McCain 'litanies'. In this totally unnecessary self-recruitment for the McCain's legacy whitewash operation, Cortez retreated unconditionally and the establishment marked a second victory against her. As we had mentioned , the corporate media will focus mainly on pushing progressives to be 'swallowed' by the current DNC establishment in order to destroy the political revolution of Bernie Sanders. Yet, it is expect

George Monbiot got it half-right: There is a capitalist civil war, but not exactly the kind of war he describes

by system failure  Since at least July 2019, we were supporting the idea that Brexit is primarily the result of a capitalist civil war. Very few people (mostly in social media), were eager to accept this theory, while several were even mocking it as some kind of crazy conspiracy theory.    What puzzled us most, was the fact that even people from the global real Left were completely ignoring the capitalist-civil-war factor in Brexit equation during public debates. Many of them were seeing Brexit mainly as an angry response by the UK working class against the political and financial elites. We thought it would take forever to find someone from the Left to support the capitalist-civil-war theory.   Finally, at last, it was George Monbiot who spoke clearly about a capitalist civil war. And not only that. He correctly supported (as you can hear in the beginning of his analysis) that " The only way really to understand Brexit is as the outcome of a civil war within capitalism. "

The real reason corporate America fights Chinese high-tech giant Huawei so hard

globinfo freexchange   The short answer that comes immediately in mind is: competition.    Indeed, Huawei had been found frequently at the epicenter of Trump's "holly" trade war against China. Someone should expect this since Silicon Valley oligarchs see the Chinese high-tech giant rapidly penetrate into the global market, claiming bigger and bigger portion of the market pie.   As we reported previously, the US imperialist machine openly called Western allies (and particularly the UK), to sabotage China's economic and technological penetration in its Western sphere of influence, through a Foreign Policy article. According to the article, the UK appears to be the most suitable, among the US allies, to lead the race against China's 5G infrastructure deals with Western countries. In essence, it called the UK to play a leading role in sabotaging China's and Huawei's deals with the UK itself and other Western countries.   Also, according to MintPress , &

Assange wins - The cost: the crushing of Press Freedom

by Jonathan Cook   Part 2 - A moment of celebration   We have contributed collectively in our various small ways to win back for Assange some degree of freedom, and hopefully a reprieve from what could be a death sentence as his health continues to deteriorate in an overcrowded Belmarsh high-security prison in London that has become a breeding ground for Covid-19. For this we should allow ourselves a moment of celebration. But Assange is not out of the woods yet. The US has said it will appeal the decision. And it is not yet clear whether Assange will remain jailed in the UK – possibly in Belmarsh – while many months of further legal argument about his future take place. The US and British establishments do not care where Assange is imprisoned – be it Sweden, the UK or the US. What has been most important to them is that he continues to be locked out of sight in a cell somewhere, where his physical and mental fortitude can be destroyed and where he is effectively silenced, encouraging

UN expert: crippling US sanctions on Syria are illegal and hurting civilians

The Grayzone   An independent United Nations expert is calling on the US to lift its crippling sanctions on Syria. Under the Caesar Act, US sanctions explicitly target Syria's reconstruction in the aftermath of a catastrophic 10-year war. Alena Douhan, the UN Special Rapporteur on the impact of sanctions, says that the US sanctions are illegal and depriving Syrian civilians of their basic needs.  " People shouldn't die, people shouldn't suffer, and people shouldn't fear whether they can survive after tomorrow, because they have neither medicine or food, because of the sanctions applied, " Douhan says.

UK judge justifies CIA spying on Assange citing debunked CNN report based on… CIA spying

UK judge Vanessa Baraitser justified CIA spying on Julian Assange by citing a falsehood-filled CNN report. Her judgment highlighted corporate media’s enthusiastic role in a state-sponsored assault on press freedom.   by Ben Norton   Part 2 - UK judge casts doubt on US spying on Assange while simultaneously justifying it   The Grayzone has published several investigations into the US government spying operation that targeted Julian Assange when he was trapped in the Ecuadorian embassy. The Spanish company hired by Ecuador to provide security, UC Global, was secretly working with the CIA, providing the US spy agency with 24/7 video and audio surveillance that covered almost every inch of the diplomatic building, including even the women’s bathroom. Max Blumenthal demonstrated that the CIA presided over this illegal spying ring with the help of a company owned by billionaire Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson, a close ally of President Donald Trump and former CIA Director and Secretar
