    we all are misunderestimating macron the same way we did w. when, not if, he says something so tonedeaf as to be stupid, insane or both, it’s the safest bet to figure he is doing it on purpose. he’s trying to piss off yellow vests. or at least appear to have done that so that children and grandchildren can more easily buy into the idea that the yellow vests were violent and therefore required a violent response. that’d be my first guess.

    btw, our dogs think shiloh’s hilarious.

      it also comes to mind that macron’s patrons are working intergenerationally and we’re all looking at short term statements and concepts as if important. remember how obviously hebdo was false flagged and that insanely hypocritical walk down the middle of that street of eu leaders trying to look like they were all of the people and everyone was fed up with this gun issue? a few of the people of this generation drilled down on the interwebs to find the larger uncropped picture showing a completely cleared street with heavy security and a completely staged and controlled movie directed shot of a few – 50 or so – famous people bunched up walking down an abandoned street made to look like they were bunched up because of cropped out crowds lining the street and cheering. such an emotional shot.

      it takes considering what audience will ever lack context enough to believe something like that. how many times do we need to watch “wag the dog” to realize this is not fiction. it’s done to all of us all day every day.

      the only ones of us sure hebdo was false flagged are those of us who keep tied in enough to see hebdo in real time unfiltered on livestreams off peoples’ phones straight onto youtube. and then we got to see the stage-managed news videos that contradicted the obvious facts seen in the livestream. remember seeing the french policeman cringing on his back on a sidewalk as a terrist walks by, puts an ak47 to his head and pulls the trigger point blank? yep. puff of smoke on the sidewalk and nothing more. (although i imagine that actor/cop who then went limp, was deaf a few days)

      so yeh, we might sound plausibly smart now, but it won’t take many generations and media revisals before we sound like conspiracy theorists blaming ufo’s for jfk’s death.

        which brings me back to:
        what’s next in merkel and macron’s media manipulation bag. how to they stir the pot and make the next generation see mr globaloney as the victim? similarities to voldemortistan’s media control come to mind so i imagine their plans for final solutions are similar.

        reminds me of a papalist i used to argue with over whether the vatican was culpable over pedo issues. he kept trying to tell me that papa was really a good guy trying to bring a few bad actors under control and protect a bunch of innocent accused guys. that really it was all just a matter of getting better pr. it was really just a pr issue according to my friend and the pope was clumsy. that’s all. nothing about ratlines for the likes of maciel or oliver ogrady. just a pr issue.

    There has been serious “Gnostic-style” linguistic manipulation in Europe of the term “Europe”. For MSM the word is a synonym of the Brussels-Berlin burocratic Behemoth beholden to the banks. Not so long ago some politicians were discussing EU membership for Turkey and even Israel, thus conveniently forgetting the geographical/cultural meaning of the word. Such manipulation is not new; the French monarchy and then the German Reich(s) asserted that their hegemony was “good for Europe”.
    If there is something in Joseph’s hypothesis that weaponized immigration has been used to produce a backlash to bring forward the concept of a European culture and a related political agenda, what would this mean? At the very least, technocrats such as Merkel and Macron have been willing accomplices.
    In a nutshell, this means that even if there are some real or apparent solutions to eliminate some of the more patently damaging policies and arrogant personalities, this will not get very far if the key power issues do not come under public scrutiny. These include the NATO bases spread all over the continent (many with nuclear weapons), the debt-based monetary system, advanced technology and of course, what is going on in space.

      this is along the lines of nato recruiting new members too right? weren’t they asking japan to join?

    On “French Yellow Vest protesters threaten to set off bank run with mass cash withdrawals,” this reminds me of the Crazy Eddie concept used-within Niven & Pournelle’s “The Mote in God’s Eye” science fiction novel:

    “When a city has grown so overlarge and crowded that it is in immediate danger of collapse … when food and clean water flow into the city at a rate just sufficient to feed every mouth, and every hand must work constantly to keep it that way … when all transportation is involved in moving vital supplies, and none is left over to move people out of the city should the need arise … then it is that Crazy Eddie leads the movers of garbage out on strike for better working conditions.”
    “Humans believe every problem can have a solution, but Moties consider that idea as much a proof of madness as we would the hearing of voices in our heads. Their term for this condition translates into the human language as ‘Crazy Eddie’.”
    “Humans always look for the Third Option – to the point where the fatalistic Moties, condemned by their biology to two bad choices, consider us all insane for not understanding and accepting what is and must always be. Their term for humans is ‘Crazy Eddie’, after a character in their folklore who’s all about the (often absurd) Third Option.”

    In a way (assuming the Yellow Vests are not part of a cynical Problem -> Reaction -> Solution ploy), those Yellow Vests are pulling a Crazy Eddie move. They know something is terribly wrong, and are moving to ‘shift the system’ in a way that might work. Hit the banksters where it hurts, and there might be change. (On the other hand, with the world being off the gold standard, the banksters might just crank the money printers to high volume to ‘solve’ the bank run, and debase the currency.)

    However, this could be a non-viable Crazy Eddie move in that it might bring down the whole bankster house-of-cards. We really need a beyond-the-banksters solution – a viable Third Option…

      the central bank scheme is designed for the parasite to bleed off us slowly enough that the host never realizes well enough the circumstance. all in the name of serving the host organism. and to bleed off the host so completely as to make resistance futile. is it futile yet?

      one scenario: if the yellow vests leave it in, the banks will keep bleeding them and using their money. they will continue to have failures and bailouts. at least until they have bail ins. either way they take the yellow vests’ funds.

      another scenario: if the yellow vests take it out, now they have scads of physical paper floating around with empty banks that cannot be bailed in nor out. hmm, how to get that paper. well, india comes to mind eh?

    In this vein, Italian leader Matteo Salvini has been in Poland for political talks.

    Failure from the get-go: structure, sovereignty & culture. For me culture is the bomb; the issuance of currency from outside the nation state, the long fuse; and the technocratic inhuman structural response, the spark that lit the fuse. As you inferred: You ain’t seen nothing yet.
    Getting real entertaining watching as Mr. Globalbaloney dance around austerity for the 99.99% while the .01% enjoy staggering amounts[in comparison]. France has just recently employed a woman, making $200,000, to adjudicate for the have nots – as she could certainly empathize [technically, of course].

        Thanks for the update.
        I had just earlier watched the latest Boom Bust episode on that spoke about it.
