"Very sad day & night in Paris. Maybe its time to end the ridiculous and extremely expensive Paris Agreement and return money back to the people in the form of lower taxes?.."
President Trump on "Twitter" 12/8/2018
"Yellow vest protests show that Europe has failed on democracy, human rights and freedom"
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan speaks today 12/8/2018
The "yellow vests" protest today has drawn strong reactions from the President of the United States all the way to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Erdogan denounced "chaos" caused by protests and "disproportionate force" used on protesters and took the opportunity to slice into opposition to Islamic influence in Europe.
"Europe's walls of security and welfare are not being shaken by migrants or Muslims, but by Europe's own citizens."
Official government figures released tonight are 1,385 arrests nationwide Saturday as police cracked down to head off anyone who looked "dangerous" or "violent". People were searched randomly with "dangerous items" being cause for arrest. Others had gear to protect them from tear gas and concussion grenades taken from them. 975 of those arrested today are being kept in jail.
1,150 of the arrests were in Paris as the protests and clashed occurred in cities across the country.
The government and media are hyping the notion that some of those arrested are "extremists".
Just like the Bunkerville and Oregon Standoff cases in the USA with the Bundy's and their supporters there will be a push by the government of France to punish those targeted like Eric Drouet (mentioned in earlier posts) and many others.
Some reverberation across the Channel in the UK with United Kingdom Independence Party leader Gerard Batten calling out a false flag online post for tomorrow's UKIP rally against Theresa May's so-called Brexit that told people to wear yellow vests....

They’ve basically promised their base impeachment and will be deflated and primaried (more socialist crazies!) if they don’t follow through.
1998 caused major blowback on us and they’d be in the same boat in 2020.
John Kerry was meeting with Iranians to try to circumvent Trump just last year.
Hillary and Uranium One.
Dems have played their hand. Continue and it’s overplayed.
And no identifying features like yellow vests, either.
Because FReepers believe killing people who protest high taxes is the opposite of what happened with our own Boston Tea Party?
Organic protesting is contagious. I would buy my yellow vest and his the streets.
Um, I think it you may have misinterpreted the them to which SuperLuminal was referring...
So true. The muzzies sit in the catbird seat taking notes.
Another point is because China is not charging 40% tariffs on US made cars anymore, the amount spent by Chinese consumers for those cars is less. That appears as an increase in the trade deficit. But who thinks thats a bad thing?
There are lies, damn lies, and statistics.
Sorry, wrong thread.
I used the word protest to show I’m not calling for violence.
If the French Police do an ideological affiliation and/or membership analysis of the “Yellow vest” protestors, it will be very interesting to see how man far-right(neo-Nazi, Aryan Brotherhood), far-left (Marxists/socialists), anarchists and just plain fed up middle of the roaders there are.
The communists are like mosquitoes, they fly in to any open wound and keep drawing blood. The reds would like to make this like 1968, where they did takeover the students riots, as well as planned some of them.
Wonder how many American newspapers are going to do an “affiliations” breakdown of those arrested. I’ll take 3 for $1,000, Alex.
“We’re gonna need a bigger jail”!
It’s that thing in Marrakesh next weekend that I saw the most signs about today.
If you cant break the resolve of your leaders with that many protesters, you know that their grip is very tight and that you need more people or more extreme methods to bring them to heel.
Your reasoning is sound.
However, they cannot survive without their mradical left wing Marxist and fascist base, and they know it. They also know their propaganda press and Network media are also totally in on this, and will carry their water and paint the Republican Senate as complicit in the mail ufactured crimes used to impeach President Trump.
This is probably their best scenario.
However, they may really need to drag this out, as it is the Mueller investigation which is keeping the attention and focus on Trump, in order to do reflect attention away from true DNC conspiracy with the Kremlin, and ilegally using the DOJ and FBI to frame and carry out a coup on Trump.
By dragging out an impeachment process, they can cover for Mueller, continue to malign and attempt to neutrize Trump, and pander to their anti-American global socialist base.
So it is possible the strategy will be to impeach Trump, which they can easily do, but stretch it out, in order to provide more cover to those involved in the real international DNC/Kremlin conspiracy.
here’s the full text of the blog that Nextrush is pimping:
FRANCE BREAKING: OFFICIAL ESTIMATES ARE 125-THOUSAND ‘YELLOW VEST’ PROTESTERS TODAY, 1,385 ARRESTS
(NEWS, COMMENT, ANALYSIS)
“Very sad day & night in Paris. Maybe its time to end the ridiculous and extremely expensive Paris Agreement and return money back to the people in the form of lower taxes?..”
President Trump on “Twitter” 12/8/2018
“Yellow vest protests show that Europe has failed on democracy, human rights, and freedom”
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan speaks today 12/8/2018
The “yellow vests” protest today has drawn strong reactions from the President of the United States all the way to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Erdogan denounced “chaos” caused by protests and “disproportionate force” used on protesters and took the opportunity of the protests to slice into opposition to Islamic influence in Europe:
“Europe’s walls of security and welfare are not being shaken by migrants or Muslims, but by Europe’s own citizens.”
Official government figures released tonight are 1,385 arrests nationwide Saturday as police cracked down to head off anyone who looked “dangerous” or “violent”.

Others had gear to protect them from tear gas and concussion grenades taken from them. 975 of those people arrested today are being kept in jail.

The government and media are hyping the notion that some of those arrested are “extremists”.
Just like the Bunkerville Standoff and Oregon Standoff cases in the USA with the Bundy’s and their supporters there will be a push by the government of France to punish those targeted and arrested like Eric Drouet (mentioned in earlier posts) and many others.
Some reverberation across the Channel in the UK with United Kingdom Independence Party leader Gerard Batten calling out a false flag online post for tomorrow’s UKIP rally against Theresa May’s so-called Brexit that told people to wear yellow vests. The government and media in the UK are spreading fear about that rally pointing the finger at prominent speaker Tommy Robinson. (The rally is at 645am Eastern time US, 1145 am in London)
126 injuries were reported with seven of them among the police.
The total estimate of protesters nationwide was upped to 125-thousand tonight. Last week the estimate was 126-thousand.
GETTING BACK TO EARLIER POSTS ON THE USE OF PHOSGENE GAS BY THE POLICE.
CAN’T CONFIRM IT BUT IT WAS POSTED BY THE BBC FOR AWHILE EARLIER IN THE DAY.
THE STORY GOT REPOSTED TO THIS WEBSITE FOR EXAMPLE AND YOU READ THE PHOSGENE REFERENCE IN THE 8TH PARAGRAPH.....PHOSGENE GAS STORY AS REPOSTED FROM BBC
THE CASUALTY FIGURES SEEM LOW FOR THE USE OF SUCH A SUBSTANCE, BUT I WANT TO NOTE THE STORY EXISTED EARLIER IN THE DAY FOR WHAT ITS WORTH.
The new tough tactics only went so far that have included rubber bullets during today’s protests for the first time in addition to the concussion grenades, tear gas and water cannon that have been used.
The story of France is a story that is being replicated everywhere with a division between the rich business and government elites and the rest of the people who are poorer.
A priest who attended the ‘yellow vests’ march for ‘peace and justice’ and spoke to a National Public Radio noted that urban and rural France are also divided against each other. That is the story even here in the USA where the big cities of wealth on the coasts have a gutted out heartland between the.
The richest counties in the USA are dominated by the urban conglomeration around Washington DC.
The Macron regime thinks its “contained” the protest and is said to be looking forward to the “President of the Republic” breaking his silence on Monday to lead the country forward.
He did send out a tweet tonight to thank the police.
But the crowds in the streets across France today had one simple message that they shouted with gusto:
The government, business and media elites in France may be whistling past the graveyard tonight with their attempts to spin events in a positive way.
