Some don't share Le Pen's views, but France's rust belt voters say they'll back her to shake the establishment http://apne.ws/2pvlXfm
C9s1nhBXcAIApLK.jpg



Considering how many French Jews were Holocausted-- sent by the collaboration French government during World War II to die in Nazi death camps - -

she certainly would be the candidate that would scare a number of Jewish French people, because of the anti-Semitic hatred spilling forth from her political party.

It’s France’s Turn to Worry About Election Meddling by Russia-

 

“The Return of Fillon to the Head of Opinion Polls,” declared the bold headline, contradicting other French polls suggesting that the onetime favorite had fallen to third or even fourth place as he battled corruption charges.

As it happens, Mr. Fillon’s lead in the polls existed only in a world of alternative facts shared by the French-language service of Sputnik, a state-funded Russian news operation with the motto “Telling the Untold.”

For weeks, Sputnik and a second Russian outfit, the new French-language arm of RT, a Kremlin-funded television station, have published reports that critics characterized as “Telling the Untrue” but that fans welcomed as a breath of contrarian fresh air.

 

The broader question as France charges toward the first round of the presidential election on Sunday, however, is what exactly lies behind what looks to many, particularly supporters of the liberal front-runner, Emmanuel Macron, like a replay of Russia’s interference in the presidential election in the United States last year.....

 

Russia, or at least its state-controlled news media, has been backing two horses in the French race. One is Mr. Fillon, who, while prime minister from 2007 to 2012, struck up a friendship with Vladimir V. Putin,....

Russia’s other preferred candidate is Marine Le Pen, the leader of the far-right National Front party who traveled to Moscow last month for a meeting with Mr. Putin, whom she openly admires. Her party, traditionally hostile to the United States and the European Union, has received millions of dollars in loans from Russian banks.

 

Mr. Macron, on the other hand, is the most enthusiastically pro-European Union candidate in the race, and Russia has been seeking to undermine and divide the union.....

Turkey’s Vote Makes Erdoğan Effectively a Dictator-

 

"The vast new powers granted to Erdoğan—wide control over the judiciary, broad powers to make law by decree, the abolition of the office of the Prime Minister and of Turkey’s parliamentary system—effectively makes him a dictator....

 

Turks campaigning against the referendum were attacked and even shot at. For much of the past year, Erdoğan’s government has been working to stamp out what remained of the democratic opposition to his rule. Since July, some forty thousand people have been detained, including a hundred and fifty journalists. A hundred thousand government employees have been fired, and a hundred and seventy-nine television stations, newspapers, and other media outlets have been closed. Many opposition leaders are in jail. That’s not an environment conducive to asking a populace what it wants....

 

Erdoğan has used one trumped-up enemy after another to justify his drive for absolute power. In 2013 came the Gezi Park protests, where Turkish police cracked down on peaceful demonstrators, killing several people and injuring thousands more.

Then, last July, Erdoğan beat back an attempted military coup against him, then exploited the crisis to neutralize any remaining opposition.

Erdoğan’s strongman tactics worked in no small part because of the acquiescence of the United States and Europe,

 

“Democracy is like a train,’’ Erdoğan was said to have remarked. “You get off once you’ve reached your destination.”

Vote in Turkey on Powers for Erdogan Reveals Sharp Divisions-

 

"....Turks who voted on Sunday to give implicit support for Mr. Erdogan’s style of authoritarian leadership, and explicit approval for a new political system that will formally bestow sweeping powers on his office from 2019.

 

Turkey’s main opposition party is demanding a recount after voting irregularities were reported in Sunday’s referendum, which Mr. Erdogan won by 51.3 percent to 48.7.....

Gee I wonder if the Kremlin financing her campaign has anything to do with that one.



Marine Le Pen's party, the National Front, was founded by her father-- after France lost the colonial Algerian War of Independence--to develop and organize political hatred against Arab Muslims in France.

Madame Le Pen, as head of that party, has no sympathy or concern for any of those gassed and dying babies or adults in Syria because they were Arab Muslims.

She claims to have cleaned up the hate spewed forth by the National Front for decades, while her father was leading it, but she has simply put a screen over it. Hate is still there in the foundation and in the leadership.

Putin supports Assad,as a dictator torturing his own people, just as he himself is he's trying to regain the former Soviet domination in Eastern Europe, to torture those people.

NATO is obviously a roadblock to this - -the National Front has found a partner in Hate with Vladimir Putin.

Going back to an Eastern European Soviet Bloc is not a good move for France or any other Western European country.

Marine Le Pen loves Hate more than she loves France.

Michael Caine: I Voted Brexit for ‘Freedom’

“I voted for Brexit … what it is with me, I’d rather be a poor master than a rich servant,” the 84-year-old Going in Style star told Sky News, adding that his support for Britain’s independence “wasn’t about the racism, immigrants or anything, it was about freedom.”

“Only Le Pen will close the borders so we don’t get foreigners coming in,” Rosy Lamiel, a 59-year-old laundress at a retirement home, said on the sidelines of the National Front rally in the small town of Thuir on the outskirts of the city. “The other parties have let the city go to the dogs.”
