President Emmanual Macron criticized President Donald Trump for being a Nationalist but should take a lesson from him

French President Emmanuel Macron criticized the U.S President Donald Trump a few weeks ago. Macron said Trump was a Nationalist, and Mainstream Media (MSM) followed up to say that Hitler was also a Nationalist. Wow, what a comparison.

What journalists in the MSM is not telling people is that even Mahatma Ghandi was a Nationalist. The National Movement in India and the role of Mahatma Ghandi and Non-Violence is an example. Employing nonviolent nationalist movements as his weapon, Ghandii stirred Indian men and woman to «fight» for independence without shedding blood. But Ghandi was also a populist. Just like Trump.

Ghandi considered himself one, and his mission was primarily the establishment of a free, independent, culturally distinct Indian nation. He used to say that “nonviolent nationalism is a necessary condition of corporate or civilized life.” (As opposed to violent nationalism).

In the book “Autobigraphy of a Yogi” the writer, Paramahansa Yogananda, quotes Ghandi`s own words on nationalism:

“I call myself a nationalist but my natioanlism is as wide as the universe; it embraces all nations. My nationalism includes the prosperity of all nations. I do not want my India to raise on from the ashes of other nations. I do not want India to ever exploit any human. I want a strong India able to transfuse its strength to other nations.Today, none of the European countries does this; they do not transfer power to other nations.”

Ghandi was also a populist. Who know that? Populist rule is bad for democracy, but despite that, we can see that populists are being voted into office in country after country. Narendra Modi win elections when the institutionalized ties between non-populist parties and voters decay.

But there is a big difference between the populism we see outside of the U.S than inside. Trumps populism is good populism while many of the other populists are bad. Trumps plan is “America First,” and that`s why he is cutting taxes, made a lot of reforms and negotiated better trade deals.

There is no doubt that European Union is important, but at what cost? Take a look at President Macron. The man who talked about Trump`s Nationalism in his speech while MSM followed up with Nazi stories.

But who is in real trouble here? Rebels in Paris blasts Mr Macron for his gas tax hikes. The opposite of what Trump did. He cuted the taxes and the U.S economy is booming. The U.S unemployment is low while it remain high in France.

This is not the fist time I`m writing about the protesters in France. This is something that has been going on for years and decades. France need to do something to make a change, but do Macron have something to learn from Trump? It remains to see.

But it seems like Macron is doing the opposite of Trump who are a Nationalist and a Patriot. Trumpis doing what he can to protect his own citizens. Its all about "America First" and he wants to Make America Great again. Whats wrong with that?

President Macron is a part of the European Union which is driven by faceless bureaucrats. A collaboration the United Kingdom wants to leave. A collaboration that communist Jeremy Corbyn want to join again. Done by a second referendum.

But Paris rioters steal police rifle and torch cars while they are protesting fuel taxes, but the demonstrations are also an indication of growing animosity toward Macron. President Trump is on his own people`s side but President Macron seems to be against his own people with bad decisions.

People in France believe that Macron is serving the interest of the EU and not the French workers. A President should represent the people, “We the People,” but the French protest movement, known as jilets jaunes (yellow vests), are protesting against its own President and the state of France`s economy as well.

President Macrons popularity is low and will be so for quite some time, because he has given no indication he will bend to the peoples demand. This will give Macron`s political competitors like Marine Le Pen a huge advantage.

America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of Globalism and we embrace the doctrine of Patriotism,» Trump said.

The U.S President Donald Trump said in a UN speech today that; «Migration should not be governed by an international body. Unaccountable to our own citizens. The only long-term solution to the migration crisis is to help people build more hopeful future in their home countries. Make their countries great again.»

Brexit boss Nigel Farage said Trump`s speech was music in his ears. The best speech by Trump so far. He also said that we want to have a world in which we respect the differences that exists between our countries, rather than pretending we can all be governed by one body. Run by bureaucrats. And that’s the theme, that ran to the whole of that speech, Farage said.

Donald Trump is also the man many claims coluded with Russia. So far, without any evidence. But whats more strange is that Germany is totally controlled by Russia because they are getting from 60 – 70 percent of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline. Who is talking about that?

The German market is the largest buyer of Gazproms exports and it accounts for about 27 percent of Gazproms European exports.

Not only Trump had a speech at UN today. Macron was also having a speech, and they both talked about competing visions at the UN. Trump talked about a New World Order, while Macron talked about a different one.

«I think that were seeing a crisis of our the very foundations of todays world. Were losing our benchmarks and our functioning. This is a reflection of our failures of the past,» Macron said.

«We will never surrender America`s souverenty to an unelected, unaccountable global bureaucracy,» Trump said. America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of Globalism and we embrace the doctrine of Patriotism,» Trump said.

We are now standing at a crossroad were two different visions of humanity`s future compete

Former President Barack Obama had a speech in Johannesburg on Tuesday. In an address Tuesday in honor of the late Nelson Mandela ahead of the 100th anniversary of his birth, Obama criticized populist movements toward authoritarianism around the world.

He was warning against protectionism, climate change and closed borders. Obama said “The politics of fear and resentment and retrenchment began to appear. And that kind of politics is now on the move. It`s on the move at a pace that would have seemed unimaginable just a few years ago.”

“I can`t find common ground if somebody says that climate change just isn`t happening, when almost all the world`s scientists tell us it is. I don`t know where to start talking to you about this. If you say it`s an elaborate hoax, where do we start?”, Obama said in the speech.

Strong man politics is on the rise. In the west you have far right parties that are based on closed borders, protectionism and nationalism. Many developed countries are now looking at China`s model of a totalitarian control combined with capitalism.

The free press is under attack. Censorship and state control of the media is on the rise. Social media once seen as a mechanism to promote knowledge, understanding and solidarity, has proved to be just as effective promoting hatred, paranoia, propaganda and conspiracy theories.

We are now standing at a crossroad. A moment in time in which two very different visions of humanity`s future compete. Two different stories and two different narratives. About who we are and who we should be.

The Ides of March and the European Union

Dont forget March 15, and what happened 44 BC. The founder of the Roman Republic, Julius Caesar was assassinated and killed by members of the Roman Senate. It is the worlds most famous political murders.

The problem was that they didn`t know what to do after Caesars death, so they went from a republican system of government and became an empire. This is actual today. The democracy is under attack.

 

 

It should be understood that the Optimate and the Populare were not political parties in conflict with each other but, rather, political ideologies which many people shifted toward and from, regardless of class in society.

Caesar was assassinated by a group of rebellious senators, and a new civil war broke out. The constitutional government of the Republic was never fully restored, and the Roman Empire began. Rome finally became an empire at the end of the 1th century BC.

British historian Edward Gibbon argued in The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire» (1776) that the Romans had become decadent, they had lost civic virtue.

Glen W. Bowersock has remarked; “We have been obsessed with the fall: it has been valued as an archetype for every perceived decline, and, hence, as a symbol for our own fears.” It remains one of the greatest historical questions, and has a tradition rich in scholarly interest.

Europe has since the fall of Rome been, not only Euro Zone, but Danger Zone. Are you able to count all the wars in Europe since the fall of Rome? I wrote about the Revolution of 1848 on May 6th last year. We now see many similarities in Europe today.

The Revolution of 1848 was also known as the Spring of Nations or Springtime of the Peoples. It was a series of political upheavals throughout Europe in 1848. It remains the most widespread revolutionary wave in European history.

The revolution was essentially democratic in nature, with the aim of removing the old feudal structure and creating independent national states. Over 50 countries were affected, and important factors were widespread dissatisfaction with political leadership and the upspring of nationalism to name a few.

Now, it is 2017, and many of the same things going on. Political turmoil, Populism and Nationalism.

Britain voted to leave the European Union last summer, and Netherland can be the next country to follow. But how?

The blond populist Geert Wilders must win the election in Netherland. He is the anti-Islam leader of the Dutch far-right Party for Freedom (PVV) and he is riding high on a wave of populism. Geert Wilders has pledged to close the Netherlands’ borders, shut down mosques and leave the euro and EU if he gets into power.

Wilder`s problem is that no one is willing to form a coalition with him, and that will result in a political mess after the election. There are very few, if any parties, that will go into Parliament with him.

A triumph for Wilders would emboden French voters to back far-right Presidential candidate Marine Le Penn in elections beginning next month. Le Penn will also withdraw France from the Eurozone, and that would be a big threat to the euro.

Latest polls tell us that Mark Rutte will win and Wilders will get about 19 out of 150 seats in Netherland. In France, Le Penn leads the first poll, but she is widely expected to lose in the second round.

We are living in a critical moment right now.
