    #BREAKING NOW: New ‘Yellow Vest’ Protests ROCK Paris, 'Riots' Reported on Champs-Elysees | Sean Hannity

    4 hours ago

    A new series of ‘Yellow Vest’ protests rocked Paris Saturday with authorities confirming reports of looting and violence along the iconic Champs-Elysees; marking the 18th week demonstrators have marched against the French government’s crippling taxes and lack of fuel across the country.

    “French yellow vest protesters set life-threatening fires, smashed up luxury stores in Paris and clashed with police Saturday in the 18th straight weekend of demonstrations against President Emmanuel Macron. Large plumes of smoke rose above the rioting on Paris’ landmark Champs-Elysees avenue,” reports the Associated Press.

    “The resurgent violence comes at a watershed moment for a movement, which had been fizzling in recent weeks, and at the end of a two-month-long national debate called by Macron that protesters say failed to answer their demands for economic justice,” adds the report.

    This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

    #YellowVest protests became pathetic tho. 18 weeks and results? Nothing just less turists in #Paris. They are doing it wrong, same thing every day and no any progress. People are getting bored of it. Macron is an abomination, clown but so are (slowly) the protests. One big circus

    Hubby is just coming home from business in Paris. I'll see what he has to say and if there's anything of interest I'll post. Very thankful he'll be wheels down in a few minutes.

    Wow. Somehow, I don't think that dastardly Macron will be in charge much longer.

    My husband stayed near the airport and didn't go into the city, so he didn't have any information to share. Sorry.

    Burning and looting doesn't work usually if your just the true citizens. But burning and looting isn't the thing to be doing anyway.

    So, Black Bloc and Antifa have put on yellow vests and done their trademark destruction. How clever of them to delegitimize the real yellow vest protests. I bet Macron loves it.

    Looks that way to me too.

    I found this out on Wikipedia. If true it looks like, unless he resigns, dies or is impeached, the French have to suffer at least 4 more years of Macron. I'm wondering if the photo, in an earlier post, of him on the ski lift while Paris burns is going to be his "Let them eat cake." moment?

    Fair use.


    "Since the referendum on the direct election of the President of the French Republic in 1962, the officeholder has been directly elected by universal suffrage; he or she was previously elected by an electoral college.

    After the referendum on the reduction of the mandate of the President of the French Republic, 2000, the length of the term was reduced to five years from the previous seven; the first election to a shorter term was held in 2002. President Jacques Chirac was first elected in 1995 and again in 2002. At that time, there was no limit on the number of terms, so Chirac could have run again, but chose not to. He was succeeded by Nicolas Sarkozy on 16 May 2007.

    Following a further change, the constitutional law on the modernisation of the institutions of the Fifth Republic, 2008, a President cannot serve more than two consecutive terms. FranÁois Mitterrand and Jacques Chirac are the only Presidents to date who have served a full two terms (14 years for the former, 12 years for the latter). "

    Link to source:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/President_of_France

    Also from Wikipedia:

    Fair use.

    "2019 European Parliament election in France - Wikipedia
    [Search domain en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_European_Parliament_election_in_France] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_E...tion_in_France
    The 2019 European Parliament election in France will be held on 26 May 2019, electing members of the 9th French delegation to the European Parliament as part of the European elections held across the European Union."

    It could be interesting to see who wins.

    Antifa, Anarchists, and Marxist goons exploiting the popular unrest.

    The masks and the black clothing are the tip off.

    The violence, burning and looting are designed to elicit a harsh response from the authorities thus making the established government appear to be some sort of repressive regime.

    Macron's government will be forced to react to them or appear weak and ineffective. Some how I don't think many of the "Antifa, Anarchists, and Marxist goons" will be the ones caught up in the crackdown.

    This could be an effective tactic for the left. Now they hang back and let the everyday French citizens/yellow vests take the lion's share of the blame. Anyone who might be perceived as a leader gets caught up in a sweep? This leaves the violent, destructive leftist goons and leadership free to carry on.

    Macron's government probably paid them - Black Bloc is a rent-a-mob. How better to de-legitimize the yellow vests in the public eye than have "them" trash Swarovski etc?
