Macron Wins French Election

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Emmanuel Macron has been elected as the new President of France in Sunday’s run-off elections. The 39-year-old investment banker will be one of the youngest leaders in the nation’s history.

The election has far-reaching implications, as Macron handily won over his nationalist opponent Marie Le Pen. Macron is described as a centrist to Le Pen’s far-right “France first” sensibilities. Le Pen had proposed leaving the European union. Macron’s election may signal the French are not ready for such measures, but Le Pen’s party far outperformed all original expectations, perhaps marking the beginning of growing nationalistic sentiment in the face of continued financial and domestic security concerns.

From Reuters:

The centrist’s emphatic victory, which also smashed the dominance of France’s mainstream parties, will bring huge relief to European allies who had feared another populist upheaval to follow Britain’s vote to quit the EU and Donald Trump’s election as U.S. president.

Five projections, issued within minutes of polling stations closing at 8 p.m. (2 p.m. ET), showed Macron beating Le Pen by around 65 percent to 35 – a gap wider than the 20 or so percentage points that pre-election surveys had pointed to.

Even so, it was a record performance for the National Front, a party whose anti-immigrant policies until recently made it a pariah in French politics, and underlined the scale of the divisions that Macron must now try to heal.

Le Pen’s high-spending, anti-globalization ‘France-first’ policies may have unnerved financial markets but they appealed to many poorer members of society against a background of high unemployment, social tensions and security concerns.

    Macron is a RATsCHILD STOOGE

    Rothschild ……Macron ………emails.

    Jim Stone Freelance has posted an email in which it appears Rothschild; working thorough a THIRD PARTY of course, APPEARS to be DRIVING an AGENDA to ISLAMIFY YOU-ROPE.

    I do not imagine anyone is surprised by this revelation as the “refugee” agenda was a part of the …Kalergi Coudenhove “plan”… for ashkeNAZI khazars to… UNLAWFULLY…SATURATE Europe… with non-indigenous peoples in order to….. GENOCIDE Europe’s Indigenous Sovereigns.

    Macron Leaks contain secret plans for the islamisation of France and Europe

    the people are not voting for these people.these fascist peaces of shit bankers are getting put into power all around the world.
    a real democracy allows the people to sack overpaid under performing selfish fedrael mafia politicians at election time.
    a real democracy allows the power and democracy of the vote to remain in the hands of the people not placed in a box and given back to the same people who have proven time and time again they CAN NOT BE TRUSTED


    I knew there were not enough Frogs to vote for self determination.

  • David Gordon

    He will be arrested before he takes office. Le Pen by default.

    Well goodbye France. I have always enjoyed coming to your country but sadly that won’t happen again. My family does not wish to wear the burqa or hijab. I wish you all well with your new immigration plans for a multicultural society that only recognizes sharia law.
    And for the rest of us………coming to a cinema near you…..soon !
