Macron backtracks on carbon tax after Paris Yellow Vest protests — or does he?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Thanks to your generosity, we crowdfunded Jack Buckby's journalistic mission to cover the "yellow vest" demonstration in Paris, against Macron's policies. 

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Jack joined me to talk about what he saw and heard, and about reports that Macron is "backing down" from implementing his unpopular carbon tax.

Jack spoke with protestors himself and despite Macron's backtracking, he doesn't think it will be enough to end the Yellow Vest demonstrations in Paris.

The French people have made it clear they won't leave until Macron is gone.

WATCH my interview with Jack to see how low Macron's approval rating has sunk.

See ALL of Jack's reports from Paris at and please consider chipping in to help us cover the modest cost of our fact-finding mission to Paris.

I truly hope the Gilets Jaunes can stay the course and completely stress the system.Macaroni does not intend to change his direction.His “backtracking” is a common ploy to buy time and hope that the uprising will fizzle and people lose interest.Then he will come back with his agenda.You do not have to look any farther than Canada to see that this approach has been used by politicians with great regularity.
Many of them are so two-faced….they have to shave twice every morning.

Off topic.

If anybody has news of what is going on right now in GB, please post it. All live stream news sources appear to have been been shut down from Europe and it is not just a matter of changing VPN settings or AD blocking etc, it appears to be international…….EU nuked GB? Hmmm.
