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.

The big fraud behind the outrageously high natural gas prices revealed

globinfo freexchange   Speaking at the Greek radio broadcaster Real FM 107,1, the Greek economist, Yanis Varoufakis, revealed the real reason behind the outrageously high natural gas prices, which can't be justified only by the war in Ukraine and Putin's actions to cut supplies to Europe.    As he pointed out, the biggest part of the rise of natural gas prices is due to the stock market games. Prices should rise by 80% at most, not 800%. The rest of this hyper-profit is because big companies have already bought quantities of natural gas for the next two years. So, they don't sell it now in order to boost its price and sell it later at much higher price.    Yet, the worst part of the story is that these financial games often create bubbles - similar to the Lehman Brothers bubble in 2008 that led to the Wall Street collapse - so we are now to the point where the German government is forced to subsidize big companies with billions, exactly because they play these risky financ

Greek ‘Watergate’: Mitsotakis’ authoritarianism cannot be tolerated anymore

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is a “destabilising factor” for the country and citizens cannot stand his “authoritarian” attitude, senior socialist lawmaker Michalis Katrinis told EURACTIV after it was unveiled that the secret services bugged the phone of Greek socialist opposition leader and MEP Nikos Androulakis.   by Sarantis Michalopoulos   Part 2 - ‘Protecting’ the company which bought Predator   In July, the European Parliament services also found that there was an attempt to bug Androulakis’ phone with the illegal Predator spyware. A couple of months earlier, it was revealed that journalist Thanasis Koukakis was targeted by Predator, another nail in the coffin of the country’s dismal media freedom record under Mitsotakis. For Katrinis, the government is “protecting” the company that purchased the illegal surveillance spyware. “ A month after the scandal was revealed, no search has been made at the offices of the company that trades Predator, ” Katrinis said, adding tha

Day 1243: Julian Assange still in prison and under slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist criminals

failed evolution   On 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorian government of traitor Lenin Moreno, invited the Metropolitan Police into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they arrested Julian Assange . Since then, Assange is kept in Belmarsh high security prison in London, without actual charges.   The real reason world's number one political prisoner is still kept in this high security prison, is because he exposed horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   And the Anglo-American axis has now become officially a fascist coalition , framed by the rest of its Western pets. UK's Home Secretary Priti Patel, one of the most ruthless ever, decided to extradite Julian Assange to US. No surprise of course. The only question we had in mind is

The sacrifice of Mr. Dimitriadis probably hides a lot and remains to be investigated, ” Katrinis noted. Mitsotakis, however, is hanging on for dear life. “ Mitsotakis is now a destabilising f

The Queen and her legacy: 21st century Britain has never looked so medieval

by Jonathan Cook   Part 1   Anyone in the UK who imagined they lived in a representative democracy – one in which leaders are elected and accountable to the people – will be in for a rude awakening over the next days and weeks. TV schedules have been swept aside. Presenters must wear black and talk in hushed tones. Front pages are uniformly somber. Britain’s media speak with a single, respectful voice about the Queen and her unimpeachable legacy. Westminster, meanwhile, has been stripped of left and right. The Conservative, Liberal Democrat and Labour parties have set aside politics to grieve as one. Even the Scottish nationalists – supposedly trying to rid themselves of the yoke of centuries of English rule presided over by the monarch – appear to be in effusive mourning.  The world’s urgent problems – from the war in Europe to a looming climate catastrophe – are no longer of interest or relevance. They can wait till Britons emerge from a more pressing national trauma. Domestically, t

The Chris Hedges Report: Ukraine and the crisis of media censorship

The Real News Network   Throughout the Ukraine war, Western news outlets have mindlessly parroted the opinions of a ruling elite and overseen a public discourse that is often unhinged from the real world.

He is the author of Somebody Else's Century: East and West in a Post-Western World and Time No Longer: America After the American Century . 

One more Greek lawmaker files complaint over attempted phone hacking

A lawmaker in Greece's main opposition party filed a complaint with the top court's prosecutor on Friday over what he said were repeated attempts to infect his mobile phone with the Predator malware, the latest incident in a phonetapping scandal. Last month, Greek lawmakers voted in favour of setting up an inquiry commission to probe the phone tapping of a political opposition leader that led Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to sack the head of the country's intelligence service (EYP).   The scandal over the wiretapping of Nikos Androulakis, leader of the socialist PASOK party, Greece's third-largest political party, has turned up the heat on the conservative premier who brought EYP under his control after taking office three years ago. On Friday, Christos Spirtzis, a former minister and close associate of SYRIZA party leader Alexis Tsipras, said that last November two attempts to hack his phone were made via suspicious text messages prompting him to click on links.
