Although last time no meaningful political change was accomplished but we did see the rise of the middle class as a power to be reckoned with.

Yes, high taxes, immigration, national sovereignty are the driving forces but it's an out and out fight against the delete ruleless class and the central banks.
Big changes coming to our world...let's not muck it up this time...

    France's Macron has a single digit approval rating.

    Obama’s Elitists Comrades on the Run
    Ex-President Barrack Obama and formerly First lady Michelle may be jet-setting around the world making millions on book and TV streaming deals, but their once smug globalist comrades are feeling the brunt of the angry citizens they betrayed.

    The story the left-run media doesn’t want people who embrace their own culture or want to provide a better life for their families is that the globalists are on the run in all corners of the world. It’s an open secret that Obama sold hard-working Americans out to his globalist buddies who tried to usher in a new world order. The open borders policies across Europe have devolved into crime, strife and even once peace-loving Sweden has become known for vicious sexual assaults.

    All across the EU bloc, people whose families have inspired thousands of years of culture are banned from certain sections of their communities as Islamic radicals rule the streets. Despite the open wounds Obama’s political proxies such as French Pres. Macron have inflicted on their native-born nationalists, the global agenda has pushed many beyond the brink. The wealthy Macron seems to be saying “let them eat cake” to the Yellow Jacket protestors who couldn’t afford to drive to work due to the French president’s gas tax.

    Arguably the most violent riots since the late 1960s have broken out in France, and at least three people have died as French troops used force to quell the protestors. Cars have been torched, and thousands have flooded Paris’ streets wearing yellow to identify them as opposing the French president’s elitist policies and taxes.

    Tired of the heinous social impact and stifling economic impact that Macron has brought from his high post, so-called Yellow Jackets protestors swarmed France’s wealthy Paris neighborhoods creating chaos. With his rich friends feeling the brunt of the globalist pushback first hand, Pres. Macron issued a brief stay to his onerous gas tax.

    Macron has repeatedly engaged in antics against populist Pres. Donald J. Trump to fire up his liberal extremist base. The French leader’s poll numbers have dipped into the single digits. His reign at the head of the French government is roundly expected to run only a single term as populism and nationalism sweep out Obama’s elitists.

    In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel has already announced she will step aside in 2019. Her party continues to lose ground as her globalist policies damage the nation’s cultural history and international respect. Her open borders leanings have resulted in high crime, loss of national pride and drawn the ire of world leaders. Both Merkel and Macron fail to meet their NATO obligations much to the embarrassment of their citizens.

    During the Obama years, NATO allies were never pressed to meet their obligations as the ex-president sought foreign friendship over American interests. Unfair trade agreements were made, and Obama was willing to throw working-class Americans and businesses under the bus to remain in lockstep with Europe’s Paris Climate Change Accord. The deal handcuffed America’s manufacturing sector while giving an upper hand to EU nations. Under the agreement, other countries could ramp up coal-fired power plants to gain a competitive edge while America would stand down.

    Britain is completing its Brexit withdrawal from the EU after decades of Obama-type elites putting their policy wishes ahead of working people. Taxes soared, services dwindled, street violence and terrorism increased while the English people took their marching orders from Obama’s globalist comrades. Like American voters that thumbed their noses at Obama 2.0 in Hillary, the British have also taken their country back.

    In Mexico, populist Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) handily ousted the elitists favored by the Obama Administration. It’s a return to nationalism in Mexico that looks unfavorably on criminal-infested migrant caravans that have trashed their city streets. The open borders elitists who once turned a blind eye in Mexico are witnessing the criminal element being arrested. Illegal migrants are being deported by the hundreds back to Central America.

    The same two major parties have led Mexico for nearly a century. But policies similar to Obama’s have changed the political landscape dramatically. The incoming administration plans to root out the type of corruption that infected the U.S. when Hillary Clinton sold uranium to the Russians in a pay-to-play scheme and Obama sent upwards of $1.5 billion in cold, hard American cash to our enemy Iran.

    Although fake news media outlets try to taint the word “nationalism” as racist, people want their countries back, and Obama’s elitist comrades have the hounds nipping at their heels.

      The globalist, pedophiles and all their [TRUSTs] know it's over and are fighting with their last breath.

      Maybe, this present day Spring of Nations, not the media one, not the false flag one, but the real will of the people will prevail this time.

      All we can do is "Hope and Chains".
      Hope for the people and chains for the great unwashed global delete.

    Interviews with the yellow jacket protesters reveal how empty the promises of well being and security for the middle class were by the Macron government. The added carbon fuel tax was simply the straw that broke the camel's back.

    There is an underlying suspicion that voter fraud deprived Marine Le Pen and her National Rally (formerly National Front) populist/nationalist party electoral victory. This nationwide expression of anger is about a perception that Macron is more interested in toadying to the EU bureaucrats in Brussels than taking care of his own people. It's about French nationalism, and that can only mean stronger support for Le Pen.

    There's a move afoot in the French National Assembly (equivalent to the U.S. House of Representatives) for a no confidence vote on the Macron government. Ironically, it's the leftists who are pushing for this, but it will more than likely benefit Le Pen if they are successful in driving Macron out. In the past, a no confidence vote triggered presidential resignations and early elections, and if Macron chooses to ignore it, his nightmare of violent revolution could happen.

    The 1848 Revolutions were a mixed bag that included The Communist Manifesto as well as the ascendency of aesthetic romanticism in music, painting, and literature. In their nationalism the liberal revolutions sowed the seeds of their own ideological destruction and set the stage for World War I. What was lacking was a consistent philosophy of individual rights. The 1848 Revolutions, laudable as they were on many grounds, were not as progressive as the American Revolution. Moreover, they were an effect, not a cause. The triumph of capitalism threatened the old order with conservatives of the right and radicals of the left both united against the rising middle class. So, yes, the liberal revolutions of 1848 had many praiseworthy elements. However, then, as now, lacking any semblence of a realist-rationalist (objectivist) foundation, they were doomed to create more problems than they solved.

    On the other had, the failure of the 1848 revolutions brought thousands of aspiring immigrants to America. Albuquerque, New Mexico, is just one town that was grateful for the waves of Jews (intellectuals and merchants) who came to the West. OTOH, many "nativist" Americans were not so happy to have the new immigrants. Same as now...

            Gave old ugly you a point anyway! Maybe because you're a good joke-cracking dance partner on these pages.
            Where'd you get "Smiths" from? Can't be a ye olde short term of blacksmiths.
            Tried to look up "smiths" but about all I got was "Smiths Plumbing" without the apostrophe because I guess plumbers are not required to spell.
            If you made that up outta the blue, "Sniffs" I'd understand.

              You may find it in an old dictionary. My Drafting instructor in high school used to call a kid a smirth...me and a buddy looked it up and agreed that the kid did infact...look like a "Smirth"

              Wonder what ever happened to him...

                I had a wonderfully old huge super thick dictionary from the late 30swith all kinds of neat added on in the back stuff in it that my dad gave me.
                Broke my heart when that irreplaceable treasure burned up in a trailer fire when the GI Bill was paying me to be a student at Troy State University.
                The cause was faulty wiring that started the fire right underneath my bed when I was at class.
                Landlord was so afraid I'd sue him that he moved me to a better trailer where I didn't have to pay rent for a while and I had free meals at his barbecue restaurant for the two years it took me to graduate.
                Two years. That reminds me. When I went straight from college to a newspaper job, me dino could not stand to eat barbecue for about that long.

    It's fine and dandy that Europe is falling apart, who cares? A division is happening here in the US, will the USA remain in one piece or not?

      Perhaps...but the interesting point is...this kind of thing has happened before in history and the last time was the onset of the Dalton Minimum about one hundred twenty years after the end of the Maunder Minimum.
      Today, we are in a serious solar minimum going into a weak solar maximum and on the precipices of another Grand Solar Minimum.
      These sociological/political uprisings seem to follow these solar events.
