    The Global Elites talk 2030 often when it comes to "Climate" and it should come as no surprise that banker turned politician Emmanuel macron sees 2030 as the time to drop 'pension reform' on France. His Prime Minister announced the plan Tuesday evening that will raise the retirement age to 64 from 62 and revamp France's retirement system.. But of course is the "Left" in France ready to fight for working people or will the "New Left" of "Climate" and "Reproductive Rights" and "LGBTQI Rights" fight so hard as Emmanuel Macron has done much to entice them into supporting him...

    Paris (AFP) – French prosecutors said Wednesday that they had searched the headquarters of President Emmanuel Macron's Renaissance party in their investigation into the use of consulting firms by the government since 2017. The Paris offices of US consulting giant McKinsey were also searched on Tuesday, the National Financial Prosecutors' Office said, confirming a report in Le Parisien newspaper. The use of consultants by Macron's governments came under the spotlight in March after a French Senate inquiry concluded that public spending on them had more than doubled from 2018 to 2021, during Macron's first term.

Connectivity was especially disrupted on internet cable between Marseille-Lyon, Marseille-Milan, and Marseille-Barcelona. According to Zscaler CEO Jay Chaudhry, the vandalism caused connectivity problems across the world. “We...
