    What is going on with the unending Brexit drama, the aftershocks of Donald Trump’s election and the “yellow vests” protests in France? What drives the growing estrangement of southern and eastern Europe from the European Union establishment? What fuels the anti-EU themes of recent European elections and the stunning recent Australian re-election of conservatives? Put simply, the middle classes are revolting against Western managerial elites. The latter group includes professional politicians, entrenched bureaucrats, condescending academics, corporate phonies and propagandistic journalists. What are the popular gripes against them?

    In the main, the American media do not think highly of our current president. This matters. Whether they admit it or not, their personal views shape their reportage. They regard him as a pretender to the throne, an accidental occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue who has done more to discredit his office than most any of his predecessors. In their eyes, he's a bombastic boor and a bumbler whose reckless disregard for the dignity of his office has cheapened the nation in the eyes of the world. Not everyone holds that opinion. A goodly number of his supporters probably don't...

    Emmanuel Macron will not attend the 75th anniversary of D-Day, "saying that French presidents only lead international D-Day ceremonies on round-number anniversaries such as the 60th or 70th. ... critics argue that he should make an exception this year as it is likely to be the last major D-Day anniversary while veterans are still alive." To Macron, who was born in 1977, D-Day must seem like ancient history. The French president is currently more interested in preserving his alliance with Berlin than in commemorating the reopening of the Second Front against Hitler a full three generations ago. It is probably...

    No, the Greens did not surge in popularity. There are two "Green" coalitions, the European United Left-Nordic Green Alliance (EUL) and the Green-European Free Alliance (EFA). The EUL is the successor to communist parties; the EFA includes several ethnic minority and regional interests and is considered Center-Left. The EFA gained 17 seats, and the EUL lost 13... so the Greens gained 4 seats in a legislature of 751 seats. So the big story isn't the minor net gain, but the net movement of Green from hard Left to center-left. The big story on the Left is the further collapse of...

    The election [May 23] of 170 part-time dilettantes from the eurosceptic Left and Right might shake up French or Italian politics. It will change absolutely nothing in the governing structure of the EU. Trumpian ideologue Steve Bannon deems the European Parliament vote this week to be “one of the most important elections ever” but he has never tangled in earnest with Germano-European deep state. The EU’s permanent machinery will reassert iron control once the noise has subsided.

    MATTEO SALVINI's Lega Nord (League) Party has claimed a convincing European Parliament victory, in a shock result in Italy. The group has around 32 percent of the vote so far on the night, way ahead of the Democratic Party. Interior minister Matteo Salvini leads League, which came third in the 2018 general election. Following his victory, Mr Salvini said in Milan: “A new Europe is born. “I am proud that the League is participating in this new European renaissance.” He said previously: “As far as I'm concerned, if the League wins nothing changes in Italy, everything will change in Europe,...

    SOUTHAMPTON, England (Reuters) – Nigel Farage demanded a seat at Brexit negotiations on Monday after his new party swept to victory in the United Kingdom’s European Parliament election, warning that he would turn British politics upside down if denied. Farage, a bombastic 55-year-old commodities broker-turned anti-establishment supremo, won by riding a wave of anger at the failure of Prime Minister Theresa May to take the United Kingdom out of the European Union. As May’s Conservative Party prepares to pick a new leader, Farage had a warning for the next prime minister: A say in the United Kingdom’s biggest decision since...

    FULL TITLE: Marine Le Pen's National Rally party wins France elections for European Parliament, Greens surge in Germany: polls The European Union's traditional center splintered in the hardest-fought European Parliament elections in decades, with the far right and pro-environment Greens gaining ground on Sunday after four days of a polarized vote. Turnout was at a two-decade high over the balloting across the 28 European Union countries. The elections were seen as a test of the influence of the nationalist, populist and hard-right movements that have swept the continent in recent years and impelled Britain to quit the EU altogether. Both...

(LREM) who, according to projections, has come in second with 22.5 percent of the vote, French newspaper Le Figaro reports. Declaring victory, the RN leader said, “The trust we have been given by the French in designating us as the first party in France...

    BRUSSELS (Rooters) – Marine Le Pen’s far-right party edged just ahead of the centrist alliance of President Emmanuel Macron in exit polls as French voters led what pollsters expected to be a nationalist surge in an EU parliament election on Sunday. The defeat for the president was narrow amid a sharply increased turnout that was matched across the continent in what Brussels is portraying as a positive sign, in spite of gains for anti-EU groups.

    Ahead of the EU elections, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has blasted “stupid nationalists,” who dare to “love their own counties” and dislike migrants. Juncker took to CNN on Wednesday to share his belief the nationalist politicians pose a distinct threat to European unity with their stance on migration. “These populist, nationalists, stupid nationalists, they are in love with their own countries,” he said, urging the EU to show “solidarity” with migrants instead. They don’t like those coming from far away, I like those coming from far away… we have to act in solidarity with those who are in a...

    Theresa May is expected to announce the date of her departure from Downing Street on Friday morning, senior cabinet ministers have told the BBC. Sources say they expect the PM to give a timetable for her successor to be chosen, with 10 June likely to be the start of the official leadership race. Mrs May is due to meet the chairman of Tory backbenchers on Friday. She has been under pressure to resign, after a backlash by her own MPs against her latest Brexit plan.

    President Emmanuel Macron has urged the French to vote for pro-EU parties in Sunday’s European Parliament election to stave off the threat of “nationalists.” The leader of the globalist-progressive La République En Marche (LREM/Republic on the Move) claimed that despite being the president, who should remain above the fray of national elections, he had to intervene because of the role he plays in bringing forth the “new stage of the European Project.” “I cannot be a spectator, but an actor in this European election which is the most important since 1979 [when the first European Parliament elections were held] because...
