Yellow Vests Becoming World Wide Movement | Armstrong Economics

Posted by M. C. on January 6, 2019

Hard believe the Yellow Vest platform originated in France.

It is not hard to believe arrests were made on the basis of being anti government. The US origin was based on being anti government. How long before the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s permanently fix that?

The Yellow Vest Movement that began in France, is spreading. It appeared also in Belgium and it spread to Canada as well. The French arrested the leaders of the Yellow Vest Movement calling them an anti-government charging them for organizing an unauthorized protest, as authorities adopt a tougher approach to try to curb the demonstrations. During the weekend of December 15th, mimicking the Yellow Vest movement in France, protests have formed all over Canada. These are peaceful protests, unlike in France, but they have continued every weekend in various cities such as Toronto, Halifax, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Calgary etc, especially in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Souffler en Arriere Big Time In France

Posted by M. C. on November 17, 2015

Souffler en Arriere (French for Blow Back according to Google Translate) is what happened Friday the thirteenth.

When I hear blowback I think of overthrowing the Iranian government in 1953 and the resultant Embassy takeover in 1979. I think of 9/11 when Bin Laden said we went over there because you are over here. I now think Paris and that ISIS went there because the French are over there.

Not that anyone acknowledges those realities nor that some of the perps were known entities. Instead we hear failure speeches on how the Paris attacks are the fault of Edward Snowden and publicly available encryption.

Now that France has been again placed in the frying pan Francois Allende wants to turn up the heat. He is calling on his “friends” to help fight the bad guys. Allende will not be doing himself any good by ratcheting up the French presence in the Middle East. Allende’s piece of the oil pie will be expensive. Read the rest of this entry »
