Analyst Who Predicted Trump's Rise Bets On Le Pen Victory

"Le Pen’s momentum is a slow-moving reaction against the men of Davos - as we have seen with Brexit and Trump - but markets don’t want to believe it."
That’s the conclusion drawn by Charles Gave, founder of Hong-Kong based asset-allocation consultancy GaveKal Research, who, as Bloomberg reports, predicted the triumph of Donald Trump in the U.S. election, and is now betting on a win for the anti-euro National Front candidate.

“HUNTING FOR EASTER FASCISM”: CAMPAIGN AGAINST LE PEN IS IN FULL SWING

The main object of Le Pen’s criticism became bankers, European bureaucrats, Brussels, technocrats and finanancial lobby. They have huge power and, that’s why, they take a decision without considering people’s will.

“They control our laws; they are leading us to our surrender and subordination. They owe our territories and we cannot decide anymore who comes to our country. They own our rights: the French in France have fewer rights than foreigners”, - Mrs. Le Pen mentioned. The leader of the National Front reminded about a threat from terrorists, drug dealers, and mafia, which are the consequences of non-controlled borders in France.

“The principle of solidarity does not reflect the interests of sovereign policy in France anymore”, - Mrs. Le Pen added. “This reflects not only the material aspects of life: the shortage of work places,infringement of native citizens’ rights and so on, but it reflects the loss of our own history and culture”.

Facebook Scrambles to Shut Down Pro Le Pen Accounts Before Election

The first round of French elections will be held on April 23rd, prompting Facebook to shut down pro Le Pen accounts, which they deem to be 'fake.'

In an effort to fight 'fake news' or misinformation, Facebook has targeted 30,000 'fake accounts' in order to control the information that its users consume.

In a statement to AFP, the company said they were trying to "reduce the spread of material generated through inauthentic activity, including spam, misinformation, or other deceptive content that is often shared by creators of fake accounts."

They are targeting accounts with the highest amount of traffic -- since they pose a grave threat to the croissant eating frog lovers in France.

In addition to outright bans, the company, in conjunction with French media, are running 'fact checking' programs -- designed to fight 'fake news', heightening their efforts around the elections -- which spans from 4/23-5/7.

Worst nightmare for EU as French election could be between TWO candidates wanting Frexit

THE European Union (EU) is facing catastrophe as anti-Brussels parties gain popularity in the French Presidential election.

Far-left candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon is enjoying a surprise rise in the polls to join Front National leader Marine Le Pen as a feasible anti-EU choice in the contest.

After weeks of polls predicting a showdown between Mrs Le Pen and Europhile socialist Emmanual Macron, Mr Melenchon has had a sudden surge in the polls after performing well in the television debates in the run up to the unpredictable election.

The Communist-backed candidate wants to pull France out of the EU as well as the military alliance NATO.

If the more left-wing supporters from candidate Emmanuel Macron switch to Mr Melenchon, a Le Pen-Melenchon second round is increasingly likely.

Le Pen says France not responsible for WWII round up of Jews

Far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen denied Sunday that the French state was responsible for the wartime round-up of Jews at a Paris cycling track who were then sent to Nazi death camps.

Former President Jacques Chirac and current leader Francois Hollande have both apologised for the role French police played in the round-up of more than 13,000 Jews at the Vel d'Hiv cycling track which was ordered by Nazi officers in 1942.

But Le Pen told the LCI television channel on Sunday: "I don't think France is responsible for the Vel d'Hiv."

She added: "I think that generally speaking if there are people responsible, it's those who were in power at the time. It's not France."

France’s far-right leader Marine Le Pen has regained a top position in the popularity rating of presidential candidates in the first round of voting, according to OpinionWay poll results released on Monday. According to the poll, the gap between Le Pen and her chief rival, former economics minister and the founder of the political movement "En Marche!", Emmanuel Macron, is now just one percentage point. Their positions in poll conducted on March 31 were equal, with both counting on 24% of votes.

Macron makes geography gaffe about troubled French Guiana

Emmanuel Macron made the blunder during a whirlwind tour of France's overseas territories.

"What's been happening in French Guiana over the past few days is serious," he told journalists, referring to tensions mounting over a general strike scheduled for the French overseas department on Monday.

"My first response is a call for calm, because blocking the airport runways and takeoffs - and sometimes even blocking off the function of the island itself is not the response to the situation."

The error - in case you missed it - was that French Guiana isn't an island at all but a coastal block of land in the northern reaches of southern America

US Will Keep Ground Troops in Libya

In a press briefing at the Pentagon today, African Command leader Gen. Thomas Waldhauser announced that the US intends to keep ground troops in Libya for the foreseeable future to support “friendly forces,” and to “degrade” the ISIS forces that remain in the country.

Waldhauser did not specify how many US troops are in Libya now, or how many will stay, but did estimate that there were less than 200 ISIS fighters left in Libya. The US had announced the end of the anti-ISIS campaign in Libya back in December, but never fully withdrew from the country.

The US forces were in Libya trying to help the “unity” government defeat ISIS in the city of Sirte. US officials repeatedly claimed the city was totally surrounded, and that no ISIS fighters would get away, though when the fighting finally ended, a substantial number of ISIS fighters did in fact get away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this is "military-speak" for the reality that the US government is never leaving Libya because of the oil and the oil pipelines.

She went on to claim it was time to drop trade sanctions against Russia, which were introduced by the EU after Putin moved troops to annex the Ukrainian province of Crimea.

Ms Le Pen told RT: “The priority is to allow cooperation between Russia and France, not only in culture but also in business and strategic cooperation such as in the fight against ISIS and also in energy."

Leftist candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon stated that he was going to become the last President of the Fifth Republic and initiate the reforms that would create the Sixth French Republic. A survey conducted by Elabe sociological institute immediately after the debate showed that Mélenchon took the second place on his credibility, losing only to Emmanuel Macron and leaving all other three contenders for presidency behind. Macron seemed credible only to 29 percent of the polled, while leftist Mélenchon - to 20 percent.

France 'ceased to be a fully sovereign nation' — Le Pen

France has ceased to be a fully sovereign nation, leader of the French National Front political Party, Marine Le Pen, said at a meeting of Russia’s State Duma (lower house of parliament) International Affairs Committee on Friday. "The fact is that at the moment the problem we are facing can be summed up in the following way: France has ceased to be a fully sovereign country," she said. According to Le Pen, this stems from the fact that France has "delegated some of its powers, at least those concerning trade negotiations and diplomatic functions, to the European Union. "The EU is behaving like an opponent of the idea, which we are upholding in our policy," she stressed. "I hope France will regain its sovereignty, and there will be no reasons whatsoever to prevent resumption of the Russian-French relations so that they could reach the cruise speed necessary for their development," the politician stated.

French presidential candidate Fillon charged in jobs probe

French presidential candidate Francois Fillon was given preliminary charges Tuesday in an investigation of taxpayer-funded jobs his wife and children received but allegedly never performed.

The charges further damage the former prime minister's chances at winning the two-round April 23-May 7 presidential election in which he once was viewed as the leading contender.

Investigating judges filed the charges Tuesday, Celine Clement-Petremann of the national financial prosecutor's office said. It was a surprise move - Fillon had said the judges summoned him for Wednesday, but they apparently moved up the decision.

Fillon is accused of misusing public funds, receiving money from the misuse of public funds, complicity in misusing public funds and improper declaration of assets, among other charges, the prosecutor's office said.

Marine Le Pen back in lead as Fillon disastrously crashes as he plans to cut 500,000 jobs

Mr Fillon is losing votes to Marine Len Pen who has once again taken a lead against En Marche! candidate Emmanuel Macron who is tipped by pollsters to win the second vote.

And the 63-year-old appeared to obliterate his own campaign by suggesting he wanted to cut 500,000 French public sector jobs.

Mr Fillon also said he wanted to force austerity on a French public already struggling from a wave of strikes, cut backs and terrorism.

And he said he wanted to bring an end to the 35-hour working week and raise the retirement age to 65 from 62.

Early Friday, about 150 people gathered outside Maximilien-Sorre and Gustave-Eiffel schools in Cachan, in the south of the French capital. Video shows hand-drawn banners hung on the school wall, and teenagers taunting officers before running away.

MARINE Le Pen has attacked the French government for losing control of the country after dozens of teenagers rampaged through north Paris suburbs in an unprecedented wave of riots.

Marine Le Pen: "I Will Introduce The New Franc At A Rate Of One-To-One To The Euro"

Providing some much needed details on her plans to redenominate the French currency, should she win the French presidential election in under two months, on Wednesday Marine le Pen told RTL radio should would introduce a new franc at a rate of one-to-one to the euro and then allow it to fluctuate, despite previously saying that any new national currency would continue to be pegged to a basket of currencies. She said the new French franc would likely fall "against whatever currency Germany uses", making French car exports more competitive, but said it might rise against the currency in Italy, a country she said would also be better off without the euro.

Incidentally, many agree with Le Pen, and according to Paddy Power, Italy now has even odds of leaving the EU before 2025, far higher than even perpetually depressed Greece.

Marine Le Pen Explains to 5-Year-Old: ‘I’m Not a Putin Groupie — I’m a Political Leader of a Great Nation’

Vanderbilt and "CIA intern" Anderson Cooper sat down with French presidential candidate (or as 60 Minutes calls her, "Donald Trump with a French accent") Marine Le Pen to talk about why she is a xenophobic Putinbot.

This 60 Minutes interview was supposed to be the last nail in Le Pen's coffin — sort of like those politically-motivated police raids on her campaign headquarters.

But things did not go according to plan.

Despite Cooper bringing his A-game — a laundry list of gotcha-journalism and smears — Len Pen held her ground.

She was also considerate enough to use simple language to help Anderson and his American audience understand why they have no idea what they're talking about

France's Death Spiral

In 1990, the "Gayssot law" was passed, stipulating that "any discrimination based on ethnicity, nation, race or religion is prohibited". Since then, it has been used to criminalize any criticism of Arab and African delinquency, any question on immigration from the Muslim world, any negative analysis of Islam. Many writers have been fined and most "politically incorrect" books on those topics have disappeared from bookshops.

The French government asked the media to obey the "Gayssot law." It also asked that history textbooks be rewritten to include chapters on the crimes committed by the West against Muslims, and on the "essential contribution" of Islam to humanity. All history textbooks are "Islamically correct."

In hospitals, Muslims are increasingly asking to be treated only by Muslim doctors, and refusing to let their wives be treated by male doctors.
