Tucker Carlson and the Plight of the Yellow Vests – Gold Goats ‘n Guns

Posted by M. C. on January 7, 2019

In short, globalism has gentrified the cities and impoverished the countryside. Rural job prospects are gone in many areas, not just in the U.S. but also in France and Italy and Greece, etc.

I have to hand out sincere kudos to Tucker Carlson. His opening salvo for 2019 was one for the ages. It was a broad-ranging, fifteen-minute rhetorical tour de force.

Tying together Mitt Romney’s vulture capitalism, unchecked immigration, political corruption and the destruction of the middle class family, Carlson laid out a story that if everyone took off their ideological blinders for a few minutes (myself included) would see as simply a horror show.

Carlson’s thesis is that the American family is disintegrating. He’s right. But it’s not just America. It’s everywhere globalism has been the watchword of public policy, ie. Europe as well… Read the rest of this entry »

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.

French News Channel Caught Doctoring & Changing Sign Of Yellow Vest Protester – Collective Evolution

Posted by M. C. on December 18, 2018

Another thing you won’t hear from western mainstream media outlets is that the majority of police in France agree with the Yellow Vests movement.

If this were Trump, the US media would be adding “Degage”.

IN BRIEF

  • The Facts:French mainstream news channel, France3, has been caught doctoring a photo of the Yellow Vests movement. They completely erased a word from a sign that was calling for the Macron to resign. They blamed it on ‘human error.’
  • Reflect On:Why would they do this? How much power does the mainstream media still truly have? Think about how many people are not as easily fooled by this today as opposed to 10 years ago. Why is alternative media deemed as ‘fake news’ all of a sudden?

The Yellow Vests began hitting the streets and raising awareness about the latest economic austerity measures in France that have impacted everything from taxes to gas prices for the middle class and much more. The distaste for how things are in France has been building for many years and simply boiled over.

Like most other protests we’ve seen over the past few years, the mainstream media seems to constantly focus on violence,
