Sunday’s legislative elections in France saw a historic success for Marine Le Pen and her rebranded National Rally, one few saw coming [Marine Le Pen’s far-right party gains newfound power in French election, by Abigail Adcox, Washington Examiner, June 19, 2022]. Recovering from a disappointing presidential election, the French Right now has more power in... Read More
As expected, incumbent Emmanuel Macron coasted to victory in France’s 2022 presidential election on April 24, receiving 58.5 percent of the vote vs. Marine Le Pen’s 41.5 percent. This, however, represents a significant improvement over the 33.9 percent Miss Le Pen won the last time in 2017. She also carried 23 of France’s départements (administrative... Read More
In the end, it happened exactly like the French establishment designed it. I called it last December in a column here at The Cradle. These are the essentials: Certified Arabophobe Eric Zemmour, who is of Algerian origin, was manufactured by key establishment players of the Institut Montaigne variety to cut off the populist right-wing candidacy...

"Things fall apart; the center cannot hold." So wrote William Butler Yeats in the wake of the Great War of 1914-1918 that had ravaged the Christian civilization he had known. In France on Sunday, the center held, as President Emmanuel Macron rolled up a crushing 59% to 41% victory in the runoff election against ethno-nationalist... Read More
For the third French presidential election in a row, Marine Le Pen lost to a candidate of Jewish banking interests, with the electorate choosing globalism and multiculturalism over French identity. For father and daughter the Le Pens have lost 8 French presidential elections. It seems conclusive that a French patriot who stands for France and... Read More
You can go back and see that I said repeatedly, from the beginning, that there was no way Le Pen was going to win this election. Frankly, I didn’t even bother covering it very much, as the only interesting part were the Zemmour memes. But frankly, I had no idea that the gap was going... Read More
“Optimism is cowardice,” said Oswald Spengler. We shouldn’t have false hopes. French President Emmanuel Macron will probably win this Sunday’s runoff election against the National Rally’s Marine Le Pen. Bookies in London give the incumbent a better than 90 percent chance. After the first round, President Macron’s lead grew. I have yet to see a... Read More
Three years after Paris’ Notre Dame burned on April 15, 2019, with needless to say still no word on the culprit, France must again, as in 2017 have to choose between flawed immigration patriot Marine Le Pen and Establishment globalist Emmanuel Macron. Their much-anticipated debate is on Wednesday April 20. The Brussels bureaucracy’s sudden allegation... Read More
Political change starts at the margins. Activists advance the cause, but may not reap the benefits. We clear the way for those who come later. But we can tell the truth and have fun doing it. President Emmanuel Macron’s appeal in the last election was his claim of independence. He started a new party and... Read More
Earlier: French Immigration-Restrictionist Patriot Eric Zemmour Declares For President, As His Mistress Is Allegedly Declared Pregnant And they’re off! French President Emmanuel Macron officially announced on March 3 that he is running in this year’s presidential elections. Meanwhile the two main immigration patriot candidates, Marine Le Pen and Éric Zemmour, have both qualified to run... Read More

Can ‘France’s Tucker Carlson’ Retake France for Patriots?
France is abuzz with the news that Éric Zemmour – a right-wing pundit – may in run the country’s presidential elections set for April 2022. Polls already have Zemmour enjoying double-digit support and potentially even beating Marine Le Pen and the mainstream conservative candidates, thus making him run off against sitting President Emmanuel Macron in... Read More
Editor’s note: An interesting and possibly important development in French politics is the possible presidential candidacy of Éric Zemmour, a Jewish conservative media figure. TOO readers may recall Guillaume Durocher’s article on Zemmour from 2015 where he noted: Zemmour, who is not a recent convert to French nationalism, has been both the most prominent mainstream...

Just another day in the democratic French Republic
Le Monde has released an article reporting on the publishing of books by French politicians, a veritable cottage industry. The report confirms a few things which any observer of the genre will long have noticed, e.g.: That French politicians write books to give off airs of literary gravitas. “‘The exercise is getting banalized and is...

Time and again, we are somberly warned of the grave threat to democracy posed by Marine Le Pen as the leader of a quasi-fascistic party, the National Rally (Rassemblement National or RN). Yet, what the French politico-media class seems to fear most is a bit of genuine democracy, unmediated by slippery politicians and smarmy journalists.... Read More

This time, it’s for real! Earlier this year, the French press released the results of a super-secret survey which found that, if forced to choose between nationalist leader Marine Le Pen and worn-out centrist-globalist President Emmanuel Macron, 48% would vote for Marine to lead their country. Never has any Le Pen been reported to be... Read More
A Statistical Portrait of a Nation in Decay
Jérôme Fourquet is a mainstream pollster with the venerable French Institute of Public Opinion (IFOP), the nation’s leading polling agency. He made a splash last year with his book, The French Archipelago: The Birth of a Multiple and Divided Nation, which presented a fine-grain statistical analysis of socio-cultural changes in French society and, in particular,...

A French Court Has Ordered A Psychiatric Exam Of Opposition Leader Marine Le Pen.
So Much for Western “democracy.” Nothing is less wecomed in the West than democracy. It has long been understood in Europe that the resurrection of French President Charles de Gaulle’s French nationalism under Marine Le Pen was unacceptable to Washington. De Gaulle was not Washington-compliant, and Washington does not want another non-compliant French nationalist. Marine... Read More

The Winners-Take-All Regime of Emmanuel Macron
A ghost of the past was the real winner of the French presidential election. Emmanuel Macron won only because a majority felt they had to vote against the ghost of “fascism” allegedly embodied by his opponent, Marine Le Pen. Whether out of panic or out of the need to feel respectable, the French voted two... Read More
Marine Le Pen’s defeat, if the vote count was honest, indicates that the French are even more insouciant than Americans. The week before the election the Russian high command announced that Washington had convinced the Russian military that Washington intended a preemptive nuclear first strike against Russia. No European leader saw danger in this annoucement... Read More
PARIS – France is holding its breath as this weekend’s second-round presidential vote approaches. The first round vote on 23 April left two winners: National Front leader Marine Le Pen and centrist Emmanuel Macron. Polls show newcomer Macron with an overwhelming 60/40 lead over Marine Le Pen. But many French are very nervous that a... Read More

Introduction: Every day in unimaginable ways, prominent leaders from the left and the right, from bankers to Parisian intellectuals, are fabricating stories and pushing slogans that denigrate presidential candidate Marine Le Pen.… They obfuscate her program, substituting the label ‘extremist’ for her pro-working class and anti-imperialist commitment. Fear and envy over the fact that a... Read More
The few weeks of Trump’s presidency suffice to make clear that there will be no change this time either. Normal relations with Russia are on the back burner, if not off the stove. The material needs of the military/security complex for an enemy in order to justify its budget and police state powers, and the... Read More
He came (from behind); he saw; he won. Francois Fillon will be the candidate of the French Right in the 2017 presidential elections, and he stands a very good chance of winning, in the second round, against Front National (FN) leader Marine Le Pen. Fillon is an ultra-traditionalist, family values, “Christian roots of France” kind... Read More
