Macron's victory has widened the French crisis

Emmanuel Macron won the second round of the French presidential election, but by a much smaller margin than five years ago.

The first to congratulate Macron on his victory was his recent foe, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Yet last year’s “fish war” almost led to a military clash between the French and British navies. Then London called for “regime change” in Paris.

The Washington Post writes that “the United States, Europe and France itself can breathe a sigh of relief [after Macron’s victory]”.

“In a way, however, it is unfortunate,” the WP continues, “that Mr Macron’s majority reflected not voter enthusiasm for him, but voter rejection of Ms Le Pen, a politician burdened by her party’s longstanding anti-immigrant bigotry and, more recently, its pro-Russian sentiment and anti-NATO bias in foreign policy…”

In fact, French society is split. Over 40 per cent of voters voted for Marine Le Pen, gravitating towards withdrawal from NATO, the priority of French laws over EU legislation, and an effective social policy.

Macron’s success was largely due to a propaganda “pandemic” campaign. Residents of the overseas territories of the Fifth Republic actively protested against the lockdowns and vaccinations and supported Marine Le Pen, who condemned the measures. And the majority of the metropolitan population, although they took to the streets to protest against compulsory vaccination, recognised Macron’s actions during the “pandemic” (which then suddenly disappeared from the agenda) as beneficial. This majority voted for the pet of the Rothschild nest.

The old Anglo-Saxon time-honoured political scheme also worked in the election.

In 1944, after the liberation of Paris, under the aegis of the American secret service the elite club Le Siècle was created, whose task was to “consolidate the carriers of real power in France, in whose hands are the leading banks, businesses and all major media,” writes Olga Chetverikova. The activity of this club, whose members infiltrated all the structures of state power, was ensured by the “continuity of power of finance capital. For decades, power remained in the hands of “an invisible de facto government of financial elites”.

General de Gaulle, the only French politician who rebelled against Atlanticism, was not part of Le Siècle and during his presidency France maintained its national sovereignty.

Another aim of the rulers of the Fifth Republic was to build a Franco-German union, with the Teutons in the lead. To this end, the transnational society Le Cercle was created, headed by Jean Viollet, a member of the Vatican Opus Dei and a disciple of the ideologue of a united Europe, Richard Coudenhove-Calergi. The main outcome of Le Cercle was the creation of the European Coal and Steel Community, which later grew into the European Economic Community and the European Union.

Subsequently, the arsenal of external governance was updated and expanded. In 2012, the CIA and the NSA commissioned, as we wrote, the world’s leading consulting firms McKinsey and Boston Consulting Group to “closely monitor the presidential campaign in France”. Jean-Pierre Joyeux, head of the French branch of the US-based Aspen Institute, set up the Rothschild-funded think tank Les Gracques, which guided Macron throughout his presidential campaign.

Macron also earned the approval of his overseas patrons by bringing the world’s largest US investment fund Black Rock into the country, which put its financial tentacles into all sectors of the French economy.

Les Graques analysts have drawn up a programme to modernise French industry, especially the French defence industry, which Macron is implementing by ensuring the subordination of the French defence industry to the German industrial capital under the overall control of US investment funds.

The French military elite demonstrated their loyalty to Washington in these elections. Thus, General Pierre de Villiers, who resigned because of a conflict with Macron, refused to run for the presidential election and took a job at Boston Consulting, advising the CIA-controlled firm in the field of “particularly complex operations”. And the 2022 presidential election was arguably a particularly complex operation by the US intelligence services in France.

Former advisor to Marine Le Pen, Aymeric Choprad, noted in an FSC interview that after the first round, “within two weeks, the Fifth Republic’s colossal propaganda machine had organised a terrifying pressure on the brains of the French, chanting two slogans: ‘Marin in the Elysée Palace is a disaster for the national economy!’ and ‘Marin in the Elysée Palace is a Putin protege!'” And Macron’s rating, which had been falling, suddenly began to rise…

To top it all off, Marine Le Pen’s votes were “plucked” heavily in favour of Macron and Melanchon, just as in the first round. This was done at the final stage of the vote count.

Even the weekly L’Express, which was sympathetic to Macron, could not hide its disappointment with the political system of the Fifth Republic and its concern for the future of the country: “France emerges from these elections even more torn and petrified in its anger and hatred. We are facing a regime crisis from which Emmanuel Macron promised to lead the country and which he has exacerbated.”

Protests erupted across France immediately after the second round results were announced. “Anger and hatred” spilled out onto the streets of French cities.
