Last weekend Emmanuel Macron strolled through a crowd, shaking hands, patting shoulders and kissing cheeks, on his way to a stage at the centre of a Lyon stadium.

The 39-year-old looked more like a Hollywood president than a potential French one. The whole event felt like an Aaron Sorkin fantasy.

There was a sharp, clean-shaven jaw, neat hair and gleaming teeth, a white shirt and thin black tie complementing his blue suit.

“Macron, president,” the 16,000-strong crowd chanted.

“Thanks. Thanks for being here,” he replied.

An hour and 40 breathless minutes later he started wrapping up.

“My friends we are living at an historic moment … We have 78 days to do something which has never been done. Seventy-eight days to make hope triumph.”

The crowd roared again.

“Seventy-eight days because our time has come and our will is on the march! Vive la Republique! Vive la France!”

He raised both hands to a stamping, cheering, standing ovation.

At the moment Macron is the man most likely to be France’s next president.

To the left of him is Socialist Benoit Hamon, an unelectable utopian. To the right, Republican Francois Fillon, mired in a corruption scandal that might not even see him last to the May election. Further right, Front National populist Marine Le Pen is riding high but unpalatable to the majority.

The French learn quick.

Gunning for the anti-Russian sympathy vote, and perhaps anticipating a Hillry-type outcome in the coming presidential elections, French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron who is currently in second place in the polls with a 22% approval rating, behind Le Pen at 27%, said on Monday he was the target of Russian media “fake news” and his campaign is facing thousands of cyber attacks, according to his party chief.

Richard Ferrand, secretary-general of Macron’s En Marche! (Onwards!) party, said that Russian state-controlled media Russia Today and Sputnik had spread false reports with the aim of swinging public opinion against Macron.

“These attacks are coming from the Russian border,” Ferrand said. “We want a strong Europe. That’s why we’re subject to attacks on our information system from the Russian state.”

“We are in the presence of an orchestrated attempt by a foreign power to destabilize a presidential election candidate,” Ferrand said and called on the French government again to take steps to prevent foreign meddling in the French election campaign.

Ferrand said Moscow looked favorably on the policies of far-right leader Marine Le Pen and center-right candidate Francois Fillon – both election rivals of Macron – and both had been “mysteriously spared” from Russian media criticism.

“If these attacks succeeded, the campaign of En Marche would become extremely difficult, if not impossible,” Ferrand said in Le Monde online.

Ferrand also said the Macron campaign was being hit by “hundreds if not thousands” of attacks probing the campaign’s computer systems from locations inside Russia. Calling for government action to prevent foreign meddling in the election campaigning, Ferrand said: “What we want is for authorities at the highest level to take the matter in hand to guarantee that there is no foreign meddling in our democracy. The Americans saw it but it came to late.” He said about half of these thousands of attacks came mainly from Ukraine and had been organized and coordinated by a “structured group” and not by lone hackers.

With President Donald Trump weighing a thaw in relations with Putin, Macron argues that EU nations need to stick together in dealing with their eastern neighbor, Bloomberg added. While sanctions should be lifted in the long term, they must be kept in place if Russia is meddling in Europe’s democratic processes or using its energy exports as a form of geopolitical blackmail, the official said.

Whereas National Front leader Marine Le Pen has called EU sanctions on Russia “completely stupid” and Republican candidate Francois Fillon has repeatedly opposed them, Macron was part of a government that helped impose the measures and has labeled Fillon a “Putinopile” or Putin fan. “I don’t believe in French people saying that great-power France should be speaking to great-power Russia — good luck with that,” Macron said in January in Berlin. “Russia is indeed in Europe geographically and historically speaking. We have lot of passions together, literature. And Russians live as Europeans. But you have Russian leaders who don’t share our values and our views.”

Macron has jumped in campaigning for the French election and opinion polls make him favorite to win election in May. Ferrand said that Macron, as a staunch pro-European, was a Russian target because he wanted a strong united Europe that had a major role to play in world affairs, including in the face of Moscow. Sputnik earlier this month ran an interview with a conservative French lawmaker accusing Macron, a former investment banker, of being an agent of “the big American banking system”.

  1. we post it bfore https://helenaglass.net/2017/02/03/frances-emmanuel-macron-groomed-by-rothschilds/comment-page-1/
    & is much more

      France said on Wednesday it would not accept interference by Russia or any other state in its presidential election, and would retaliate if necessary.

      The pledge by Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault followed complaints by the party of election frontrunner Emmanuel Macron that his campaign was the target of ‘fake news’ put out by Russian media, as well as internet attacks on its databases.

      “We will not accept any interference whatsoever in our electoral process, no more from Russia by the way than from any other state. This is a question of our democracy, our sovereignty, our national independence,” Ayrault told parliament.

      He said France would set clear limits, “including retaliatory measures when that is necessary, because no foreign state can influence the choice of the French, no foreign state can choose the future president of the Republic.”

      The Kremlin said on Tuesday that allegations made by Macron’s En Marche (Onwards!) movement were absurd. The centrist is currently favorite for the April/May election, ahead of far-right leader Marine Le Pen and conservative Francois Fillon.

      U.S. intelligence agencies concluded in an assessment in January that Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered an effort to help Republican Donald Trump’s election chances by discrediting his Democrat rival Hillary Clinton during last year’s presidential campaign, including by hacking emails from the Democratic National Committee.

  2. This guy comes from nowhere but a bank. He said that he will tell his program if he passes frst round. It is an empty shell, there is nothing, no thing.

    It’s all noise and huge propaganda around him, here’s a video exposing how they trick people at the meetings:

    • “It is an empty shell, there is nothing, no thing.”

      In postmodernity, what I quoted above is admired. The admiration is not a good thing, as you well point out.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postmodernism
      “The term postmodernism has been applied both to the era following modernity, and to a host of movements within that era (mainly in art, music, and literature) that reacted against tendencies in modernism. Postmodernism includes skeptical critical interpretations of culture, literature, art, philosophy, history, linguistics, economics, architecture, fiction, and literary criticism.”

      The “no-thing” is actually a postmodern effort. It is believed that the more nothing something or someone is, then the more “post” or beyond the current circumstances the world may become. That “post” world is not defined on purpose, because according to postmodernity, we do not know what the world beyond is. We just know we have to go there or be there. It is just “post-“. It is art on the go. Making it up as they go, would be a good postmodernist. To define anything, and crystalize any form of teachings (doctrine), even in conversation, is authoritative and dictatorship in some circles of postmodernity. Everything in postmodernity has to be fluid, always changing, nothing is static. Pure chaos.

      • “Everything in postmodernity has to be fluid, always changing, nothing is static. Pure chaos.”
        …in order that THEY could rule at best ;)…

        the guru of postmodernist & liquid society:

        “”The reunion of power and politics may be achieved, if at all, at the planetary level. ”
        “The future of democracy and freedom may be made secure on a planetary scale – or not at all.”

        “Those insecurity and uncertainty, in their turn, are born of the sense of impotence: we seem to be no longer in control, whether singly, severally or collectively. To make things worse yet, we lack the tools that could allow politics to be lifted to the level where power has already settled, and so enable us to recover and repossess control over the forces that shape our shared condition while setting the range of our options and the limits to our freedom to choose: control which has now slipped or has been torn out of our hands.
        The demon of fear won’t be exorcised until we find (or more precisely construct) such tools.”

        Lecture at the LSE, 2005, THE DEMONS OF AN OPEN SOCIETY
        http://www.lse.ac.uk/publicEvents/pdf/20051020-Bauman1.pdf

        • By Professor Bauman (maria link above):

          “[P]rogressively stripped of the institutional state-supported protections, has been open to the vagaries of the market and turned into a playground of the global forces beyond the reach of political control and so also beyond the ability of the already affected or fearing to be affected victims to respond adequately, let alone effectively resist.”

          “‘In an age when all the grand ideas have lost credibility, fear of a phantom enemy is all the politicians have left to maintain their power’.

          “He found that whereas in 1976 only 7 per cent of German citizens considered personal safety to be a paramount political issue, two years later the considerable majority of Germans viewed it much more important than the fight against unemployment and inflation. During those two years the nation watched on their TV screens the photo-opportune exploits of rapidly swelling police and secret service forces and listened to the ever bolder auction bids of their politicians promising ever tougher measures to be deployed in the all-out war against the terrorists. (An example of the shift in the public, due to the state’s interest, from economic concerns to security concerns.)

          “If the immediate purpose of the terrorists is to spread terror among the enemy population – the enemy army and police, with a wholehearted cooperation of the mass media, will certainly see to it that the purpose is achieved much beyond the degree which the terrorists themselves would be capable of securing.

          “Instead of pausing for contemplation, the governments act – and if thought without action is admittedly ineffective, thoughtless action proves to be just as well – and that on the top of enormously increasing the volume of moral corruption and human suffering.

          “[S]tate governments, struggling day in, day out to weather current storms, stumble from one ad-hoc crisis-management campaign and one set of emergency measures to another, dreaming of nothing more than staying in power after the next election but otherwise devoid of farsighted programmes or ambitions.

          “[T]he meta-problems conditioning the tackling of all other problems – are global , and being global they admit of no local solutions; there are not, and cannot be, local solutions to globally originated and globally invigorated problems. The reunion of power and politics may be achieved, if at all, at the planetary level.”

          “Fear is arguably the most sinister of demons nesting in the open societies of our time.”

          The professor who wrote the paper, I quote from above, is focused on “fear”, and the only solution he offers is control at the planetary level (global government). He says power is global, such as global trade forces, and the nation-state no longer has this power that has shifted to the global stage. The professor says the merger of the gov’t control with where the power currently exists (it exists on the global, not national scale) should be the objective. He states there is a lack of tools to get localized gov’ts (nation-states) merged into where the power exists (global geography).

          He states, “To make things worse yet, we lack the tools that could allow politics to be lifted to the level where power has already settled, and so enable us to recover and repossess control over the forces that shape our shared condition. The demon of fear won’t be exorcised until we find (or more precisely construct) such tools.”

          So Professor Bauman is a globalist. I think he understands the current situation, but his solutions and even the problem, he does not rightly understand. He is descriptive, and has interesting facts. Yet he lacks the understanding of a fallen world. We are sinners in need of a Savior, and how people have to “Repent and Believe!” or they will face the fear they have in death, regardless of their worldly solutions and worldly problems.

          Interesting article Maria, thanks.

          • read through Bauman’s bio and tick the boxes…:
            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zygmunt_Bauman

            have in mind this words of him: ” we lack the tools that could allow politics to be lifted to the level where power has already settled, and so enable us to recover and repossess control over the forces that shape our shared condition while setting the range of our options and the limits to our freedom to choose: control which has now slipped or has been torn out of our hands.
            The demon of fear won’t be exorcised until we find (or more precisely construct) such tools.” = we must create the institutional tools to fit the needs of the global elite; only then there will be order (out of caos)

            all the best, adirondack

          • “The professor who wrote the paper, I quote from above, is focused on “fear”, and the only solution he offers is control at the planetary level (global government). “
