]mmanuel Macron just went after Russia — to Putin’s face

Oh, if we only had a leader of Putin's ... er, I mean Macron's caliber.....

Quote:
Immanuel Macron just went after Russia — to Putin’s face

France is back, baby. Macron takes a strong stance with both Trump and Putin.


Emmanuel Macron, the newly minted French president, stood next to Russian President Vladimir Putin at Versailles on Monday and made clear that he was ready to confront one of this century’s most aggressive strongmen. It was a move straight out of Putin’s own playbook — and one impossible to imagine President Trump making.

At a press conference, Macron was asked why some Russian journalists had had trouble getting access to his campaign during the election. The French president quickly drew a sharp distinction between journalism and propaganda.

“When news outlets spread despicable lies,” he said, “they are no longer journalists. They are organs of influence.

“Russia Today (RT) and Sputnik,” he continued, “were organs of influence during this campaign which, on several occasions, told lies about myself and my campaign. ... Russia Today and Sputnik did not behave as media organizations and journalists, but as agencies of influence and propaganda, lying propaganda — no more, no less.”

Then he went further. He said France was prepared to use military force if Syria used chemical weapons again. Echoing similar language from German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Macron said he would be paying close attention to a recent wave of horrific violence against gay men in Chechnya.

So to recap: Macron basically sideswiped Putin with a live television takedown at an event that was originally billed as a reset for testy Franco-Russian relations. Macron bashed Russia’s use of fake news, criticized the country’s abysmal human rights record, and said he'd no longer stand by as Russia’s allies in Damascus used chemical weapons against Syrian civilians.

He became rich, he and his buddies, by stealing from the Russian people. He's been president more or less since 2000 and has utterly failed in diversifying Russia's economy. Russia still doesn't produce anything the world or even Russians want besides caviar, vodka, weapons, and oil.

Russians feed their dog American dog food, and clean their bathtubs with Mr. Clean.

But as you noted, Putin's pockets are stuffed with cash.

So, Macron - the face of the Rothschild Banking Empire thinks he's the new Charles DeGaulle. For anyone unfamiliar, that was the last French demagogue who thought France was still an empire and bankrupted his country to try to project French imperial power!
