Chinks in Oligarchy Armor

The streets of Paris have become a war zone, as militant yellow-vest protestors clash with police over austerity measures and a series of middle-class tax increases announced by the Rothschild-peony Macron government. Already Macron has had to call off a fuel tax increase, which the protestors know is an Agenda 21-inspired attempt to make working people pay for the oligarchy’s trashing of this planet.

Here in the US yesterday the Dow was down nearly 800 points.  Phantom tech profits continue to be exposed, a global trade war looms and the bond market yield curve inverted, indicating a looming recession in the US. Already most of the global economy is in tatters.

In Afghanistan, a series of Taliban offenses have put the US puppet government in Kabul on the ropes, as the Trump Administration scrambles to relocate the Crown/CIA  poppy empire to a different war zone in a new country.

Oil prices are crashing due to the announced exemption of eight countries who will be “allowed” to buy Iranian crude, despite the introduction of a new round of medieval sanctions on that country. Qatar has dropped out of OPEC, exacerbating the cracks in Saudi hegemony over world oil markets exposed by the Khashoggi butchery.

Worse yet for the London bankers who created and have backed the despotic Saudis, there is talk that oil will soon be obsolete, as alternative energy technologies continue to gain market share.

The housing market seems to be entering another rough stretch after Toll Brothers and other homebuilders announced weak demand and offered a bleak outlook going forward. Young people simply can’t afford to buy houses at these levels, so a long- protracted downtrend in housing prices seems inevitable.

As the nation virtually shuts down today to mourn possibly the worst President in US history, events seem to be spinning out of control for the global elite. The French have it right. It’s time to shut down the system, refuse to comply with its mandates and overthrow the existing order.

This time the Federal Reserve’s “put option” of lowering rates to stave off a stock/housing market crash may not work to prop up their death economy. But only if more people wake up and take a courageous, militant and revolutionary stand against the rigged system which enslaves us can we create a new just society to take its place.

Wake up Slaves. Ya Basta!

as Trump boasts--- it's a house on fire

when will they raise our gas prices?  we will also have riots

Let them eat cake ---same reaction

Oh yes,it's coming to our shores as well.Profits are sacred

While the so-called “yellow vests movement” has drawn a few hundred thousand people to sometimes violent protests and road blockades against high taxes on diesel, leading to two deaths and more than 500 people injured, French President Macron is travelling Europe, pontificating about things like an EU army. The protests bear a resemblance to Brexit: ordinary people have had enough, even if it isn't always clear of what and even if they have been voting for the parties responsible for high taxation. However, to dismiss their anger and to double down on policies to tax diesel, as Macron seems to do, may be very risky.

Former US President Ronald Reagan once described what, according to him, was typically a government’s view of the economy: “If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” With diesel, the cycle started with subsidies. Between 1995 and 2015, the share of diesel cars on European roads doubled to around 50 per cent. Without government support for diesel-fulled cars, which were thought to emit less CO2 than their petrol counterparts, researchers have concluded the share would have remained constant around 25 per cent.

Now that we’ve arrived in the taxation stage, which has pushed up prices by 23 percent in France over the last year, Macron is feeling the heat. Some 77 per cent of French people now support the yellow vests movement, and the number is rising. Even among Macron’s own voters, support stands at 41 percent. Some of the leaders of former President Hollande’s party are also on the street, despite being the ones who came up with some of the taxes that are being contested. The centre-Right and hard-Left opposition have also united against Macron to express support. 

The French socialist party has accused Macron’s government of trying to link this grassroots movement to the far right Marine Le Pen “to better disqualify it”. But according to sociologist Vincent Tiberj, the yellow vests movement derives largely from the lower-middle classes, who earn enough to pay taxes but not enough to live comfortably. A lot of the protesters come from “La France profonde”: small towns and rural areas that have often gone through dire economic times, far away from the world of Emmanuel Macron, a former investment banker.

Macron himself has reacted by saying his government intended to “tax fossil fuels more” as a way to “support the poor”. Unfortunately for him, it seems the poor are not so keen on the method. A poll reveals that 82 per cent of French think the government should simply scrap the increase in fuel taxes foreseen for January. Macron’s popularity meanwhile continues to tank, from a 29 per cent satisfaction rate in October to 25 per cent just one month later. One in three French do not have an alternative to driving to work and cars are essential not only for economic but also for social reasons, preventing social isolation of the more vulnerable. For many people, this is not something to mess around with.

Is this Macron’s “let them eat cake” moment? The phrase, attributed to Marie Antoinette, the last Queen of France before the French Revolution, was apparently uttered by her after she learned that the people were suffering due to widespread bread shortages. Suggesting that the ever higher fuel taxes are necessary for the environment may have the same effect on many of the “yellow vests”.

Even if these taxes are needed to save the environment, many may wonder why then people were encouraged to buy diesel-fueled cars in the first place. They may also wonder why then only 184 million from the 3.9 billion euro extra income from the so-called “domestic consumption tax on energy products” raised this year will be used to finance the “energy transition” and why the rest will be used to help cover France’s extensive budget deficit. That’s especially the case as these taxes hit the less well-off harder, due to the fact that they tend to use older vehicles.

Of course, if France weren’t the country currently leading the global ranking of government spending to GDP, people may be more relaxed about an extra 50 euro per month to fill up their tank to save the environment. But France’s “tax freedom day”– when people start working for themselves - only comes on July 27. Then the French government seems more keen on new taxes than on spending cuts. New taxation initiatives meanwhile include tax hikes for health care providers – a baffling 40% for 2019 -, on garbage collection and tourist accommodation.

How will this not hit ordinary people? If a completely spontaneous yellow vests movement can already hit the revenues of big French supermarkets with 55 per cent in one day, one should wonder what will happen if the protestors start organizing themselves properly.

This could be the start of something big:

Thanks to the situation that is deteriorating everywhere, I think we gonna be witnessing more and more events like the latest rioting in France. I think it is just the beginning.

For this article, it is not really important what was the reason of riots there. The point is that riots like that gonna probably happen “in your town” too eventually.

Why is that?

Without getting too deep into political and economical or any other reason why it might happen to you, two reasons can be pointed out.

The internet and social networks create waves.

The internet as a resource for independent news and opinions is a great thing, but also it may work in a different opposite way. It happens like this all the time so one fake news that is carefully packaged and spun can cause an illogical situation where you have full grown people getting together and involving themselves into something that is actually riot.

So as an end result you are out, together with people who are kicking a police officer or storming the local mall for big screen TVs because you were fueled and raged by something that you read or saw on the internet, something that might be completely false.

So always think, who actually has a use for that big group of people who are rioting outside, stealing and trashing things?

Do you personally have a use for that?

Hopefully, you did not go outside because of TVs or similar.

Usually there is always somebody hidden behind that rioting, and usually, he (or they) are not with you outside, they are safe, spinning things and getting people to act this way.

General feelings of desperation

People riot because of general insecurity, no jobs, bad economic situation, fear, rage, violence…

All that is very easily used for different kind of agendas.

We are all more or less there, feeling anger or concern, otherwise, we would not probably be in this whole prepper movement. But the point here is that being a prepper should be quite opposite of joining a whole bunch of people outside in a loose alliance of demanding something. Because the majority of those people are outside either for fun (destruction) or acquiring items like (again) big screen TVs, hurting other people for fun, and similar.

It is not prepping/survivalism.

I know, there are always exceptions to the rule, and historically a lot of things could not be achieved before a big mass of people go out on the street and demand something. But most of the riots today are actually orchestrated because of other agendas, so I simply do not trust in it.

What you should know about riots

I have been into several riots in my life. Sometimes I was protesting, other times I was there “on the other side”.

All riots have a few things in common:

They can be predicted only to a certain point.

They say that riots have mentality on their own, and from my experience, it is by bigger part the truth. So one moment you are with your buddies, screaming and demanding something or carrying signs with messages (or stealing something from the mall). But then the next moment some unknown man may yell “get that mo******er” and point at you, and a few others may pick up on that, and then you are dead.

Things happened in moments there. It is hard to control and predict things.

Violence becomes easy.

It is a place and situation where the mob leads people. You can see a man who never yelled in his life and now he suddenly leads a group of ten people in kicking someone.  Actually, you can be that man.

There is a turning point in every riot when stakes get higher, once when blood is spilled. Let’s say someone gets killed, then all stakes get higher because being involved in events like that with a big group of people gives you a feeling of “these things are right to do” even if they clearly are not OK to do.

Again you can find yourself on both ends of that.

It’s surprisingly easy to find yourself trashing things just for fun. Why? Because everybody around you is doing the same. It is like you are on drugs, it is a feeling that is hard to describe.

Riots from a survival point of view…

Taking into consideration again the state and the problems that we have everywhere today, you need to understand that every riot can possibly be an event that leads to another chain of events.

Every riot can be the start of SHTF.

Again – why the riot started is not the important thing.

The important thing how far it will go and is it going to “flip” at that moment when it leads to something more serious.

It can be football hooligans rioting, or protests and rioting over high fuel prices or similar.

But those riots can be used by some groups to start real mayhem, and you can’t conclude that until days later, not at that moment.

The thing here is do you want to be in the middle of that when it starts or safe at home with your family or maybe bugging out already?

Having your opinion and fighting for it is one thing. Being in the middle of chaos voluntarily is another thing. Usually, it will not work how you would like it to work.

The last riot that I was part of was actually like a spontaneous gathering of people who were demanding more jobs and less corruption.  It ended in a violent clash with riot police and torched government buildings.

After the riots, I found out that the majority of protesters were brought to the city by free buses, organized from a political faction (same more or less like ruling one) who wanted to take power. They had clear instructions what to do, they were paid for that. And for days before it happened, we were bombarded on social media with news that fueled rage.

And all of that news turned out to be false.

And nothing really changed.

Now again, I am not saying there are no high causes and reasons to go out and violently demand things. I am just saying that in most cases, it is not worthwhile.

Usually, you are not gonna change things in that way, and you have a high chance to be hurt or killed, and to not to be with your family while SHTF maybe starting.

A long time ago, I witnessed riots between football hooligans, and it ended up almost like a small war in the city.

Years later we found out they (football hooligans leaders) were paid by some government faction to fuel rage between different groups of people as an introduction into a civil war.

And it worked perfectly. Because soon after my own SHTF began.

  • Fearing protesters could target street furniture or construction sites, Paris police will remove all the glass containers, railings and building machines set up in the identified sectors which include the Champs-Elysees avenue.

    Across the country some 89,000 police will be mobilized, up from 65,000 last weekend, when more than 130 people were injured and over 400 were arrested in the worst street violence seen in the country in decades.

Sounding like the protests have more to do with the banksters than just gas prices.Macron was an investment bankster

Amen to that!

French people are standing up for their rights and speaking out for many others around the world who are sick at the injustice of capitalism. None more so than people of Western states who have had to endure decades of economic austerity while a tiny elite become ever more obscenely wealthy.

In addition to the irrational malign distribution of wealth that capitalism bestows, Western states -- that is, the oligarch-serving politicians -- spend and waste inordinate financial resources on militarism and waging criminal wars.

For the fourth weekend in a row, the French public have taken to the streets of Paris and other major cities to demand economic justice. They also want President Emmanuel Macron to resign. Macron has so far kept his usual aloof silence on the protests, leaving it up to his prime minister Edouard Philippe to placate the angry nation.

Bringing the country to almost a standstill by blocking transport links and fuel supply, the French have demonstrated "people power" and what can be achieved when we organize for our rights.

The French public say the new taxes would hit their livelihoods. Macron claimed the new fuel levies were for raising government funds in order to pay for transition to a more ecologically sustainable society.

However, ordinary citizens point out that Macron -- whom they disparage as "president for the rich" -- recently abolished taxes for the very wealthy. That giveaway could have been used instead by the government to fund whatever green projects it is planning.

Macron's administration is also planning major tax reductions for big business and corporations. Again, that move shows the elitist priorities of this president and his ministers. The Élyse'e Palace is intent on making the majority of working people pay for social changes, rather the rich class who could easily afford it.

In addition, the French state spends about $50 billion a year on military. If that expenditure was, say, halved, then there would be no need for austerity and arbitrary cuts in public services and welfare
