Has French President Macron suddenly become some sort of… conservative?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

I’ve been resistant to Emmanuel Macron, the French president. He continues to welcome countless unassimilable migrants to France, even as terrorist attacks become so commonplace they no longer even make the news unless they’re particularly horrific.

And Macron is weird. When he was sixteen he pledged to marry his teacher. And he did. She was already married, with three kids. Really weird.

But then I learned about Macron's visit to Burkina Faso, a former French colony in west Africa. One of the poorest countries in the world.

He’s met with rioters shouting, "Down with imperialism."

Except that Burkina Faso has been independent since 1960. The rioters' grandparents might have lived under the French Empire. But they haven’t. Their parents haven’t. All Emmanuel Macron means to them now is — free money.

Except Macron didn’t do the Trudeau thing or the Obama thing — the world apology tour.

Macron talked about slavery — not in the past, though, but that's happening in Africa right now, run by African slave traders.

Then Macron visited a university in Burkina Faso’s capital. The students started complaining to him about the country's power outages.

Right on cue, the president of Burkina Faso — who was sitting next to him — walks out on Macron. Why?

He went to repair the air conditioning!

I swear that happened.

I had no idea this side of Emmanuel Macron ever existed.

And I just searched the CBC’s website.

No surprise — they didn’t quote what he said...

TONIGHT'S GUESTS: Lorne Gunter warns that Alberta is on track for its own version of the "Rae Days," the drastic policy the NDP brought in when they were running Ontario; then Gregg Roman, the director of the Middle East Forum, discusses the Liberal government's handling of “returnees,” who want to come back to Canada after the defeat of ISIS abroad.

Paul McCullough—I heard today that Notley is only asking the Non-Union people to take a wage freeze.

Mette Reed—Macron is weird, however he seems to be his own man, which is rare for a Politician.
Recently he told the French Press that they are too dumb to follow his policies.
In this story he stood up to the Africans in a firm way.
Most important , the French Financial Powers are not backing him anymore as he isn’t obeying their orders. That is a good sign that he will either do what is right, or he is crazy.

Macron, I wouldn’t trust him! Very weird for sure. And, Trudeau has severe mental problems. No emotional intelligence there at all. Imagine a “Man” crying all the time like this Nut does. I guess that’s just one of the common characteristics of a Male Feminist Pig! Ha.
Notley is an out of touch phony! With Trudeau supporting and encouraging Terrorists, it’s only a matter of time Canada. What can we expect when we have members of the Muslim Brotherhood in our own government. Don’t expect protection for our safety and values. Great interview with Gregg Roman! I think Trudeau was chosen because he is an “empty vessel that anything could be poured into.” Thanks, Ezra.

I don’t know why Macron seems to have changed all of a sudden, but I am glad he did. White guilt only goes so far. At some point, other races have to accept responsibility for their own problems.

We likely have 300 to 500 ex-ISIS fighters in Canada. It will take them a while to connect up with their friends again, and to make plans. Can we expect an attack in one of our major cities in the next 2 years?

I was wondering if Ezra was going to do a story on the German mayor that got knifed for taking in too many fake refugees.

I saw the look on Gregg Roman’s face when you spoke of the edict to destroy those 5000 questionnaires. You should have on a VIP guest, politician or journo perhaps, who doesn’t have much knowledge of the goings on in Canada and get some “foreign” perspective on what Justin is doing to our once great nation.

re :Macron, I’m sure he hasn’t changed his colours but that was fun to watch.

What is Gitmo for? That is where all those ISIS soldiers and wives should go to live out their lives. These ISIS brides aren’t fit to bring up children. The children should be taken and adopted out after they have themselves been assessed and given any psychological, or medical care deemed necessary. You can’t reform anyone over 18 and that is being generous. No population should have to live side by side with ISIS soldiers. They should never be in the general public, and should even be kept out of our jails. Guantanamo Bay has lots of room these days. Fill it to the rafters. Better yet, leave where they are. If you don’t fight them and kill them over there, they will kill us over here. This is insane.

I like your attitude Rebelation Rebelation.

It is always so refreshing to hear no bull straight talk. That clip of Macron in Africa was great. Strange (for him?)and entertaining. I don’t think the president of Burkina Faso thought so though. Can you imagine Justin having the gonads to say something like that, to stand up for his country against a bully? Never! Is there a bootie Justin won’t kiss for a favour or a photo op?

Poor Alberta. Notley and her pack of liars and deceivers days are numbered. She knows damn well why that caller’s company was down $40,000. Because she ruined market confidence with her vacillation and chased business out. She was acting with Ottawa to shut oil and gas down. Even at low market prices Alberta could have stumped along. I hope he told her where to go. What part of ‘you have been down graded’ does she not understand. She must think Canada is stupid.

The RCMP will be sealing and hanging on to those documents for 2years, per the rules. The municipal and provincial politicians cannot interfere with the police. I doubt it’s any different for the RCMP, but I’m calling the Adelaide office tomorrow to confirm. Once confirmed I’ll seek private charges against Goodale. Those illegal immigrants were under arrest when being questioned. That’s an important point. Godoale interfered with an investigation. And they’re not “values” tests (though there’s nothing wrong with that in my view), they’re “propensity to radicalization” tests to keep us safe. Something the “safety minister” has an obligation to.

I disagree Ezra about not using the courts. Yes, they’re biased, and it’s an up hill battle for sure, but look how often John Carpay wins. You have to have air-tight arguments and force them to make the right decision. And if the courts want to shoot us down case after case after case, it creates an undeniable pattern we can then address. But not filing, is defeatist in my view.

Does Canada not have laws allowing for the arrest of war criminals entering the country? Should not these individuals who fought for a terrorist organization be fully investigated before rather than after they arrive? Is the government not responsible to investigate?

Maybe Macron’s truth telling session is a side of effect of feeling overheated in Africa, add to that, he was out of earshot of Angela Merkel.

Great interview with Lorne Gunter.

ISIS fighters and their brides should not be walking among us period.

- Maybe some Trumpism has rubbed off on Macron. What kind of leftist stupidity causes people to chant “down with imperialism, fix our electricity”? We’ll see what happens when Macron is back in France dealing with the disaster of open borders.

- An Alberta version of “Ray Days” will likely wipe out the Alberta NDP. They’re hated as it is, what do they have left if they lose the union support?

- If Canada had a government that cared about the Canadian people they would be stripping these ISIS fighters of their citizenship. Instead, Canada has the Trudeau Liberals. They’ll likely start cutting them checks & offering them apologies.

He is the perfect poster boy example of an elitist globalist left wing limp wimpy Euro Eunuch ……kinda like Trudeau’s European doppelgänger

Husband of a child molester – and a coward at heart.

There is a reason the Canadian government now has travel warnings for those going to France and Paris.

He is one of the main reasons.

Macron was forced to center himself because nationalism is a strong organic movement in France and the EU. He’s a typical politician bending the way the wind blows. Won’t do him much good after he burned all his bridges with Trump – France is expected to see negative economic growth from a widening trade deficit with North America.
