Yellow Vest Protesters to Withdraw All Their Euros in Massive Run on French Banks

  • For the record, I do not advocate a run on the banks. We need to let things settle a bit to see what/who is behind this ‘bank run’ effort. The sheeple may be suckered into another Illuminist scam to introduce legislation for a cashless society. Ie. no form of cash withdrawal will be allowed and it will all be electronic and kept in banks.
  • Yellow Vest Protesters to Withdraw All Their Euros in Massive Run on French Banks
    by Staff reporter and AP, AFP, https://www.news.com.au/
    Furious yellow vests are preparing to withdraw all their euros in a massive run on French banks, as the violent protests spill over to Britain.

    Yellow vest activists are urging French citizens to empty their bank accounts and spark a massive run on the country’s banks in their longstanding fight with the government — which could lead to the collapse of its banking system. The call for citizens to withdraw all their euros come as copycat protests are planned for Britain on the weekend.

    The left-wing “People’s Assembly” activist group has invited thousands of people to wear yellow vests at an anti-austerity “Britain is broken” march in central London this weekend. “See you on the streets and don’t forget your #YellowVests,” the group, which is demanding a general election to end the ruling Conservatives’ program of austerity, wrote on Facebook.

    Meanwhile right-wing, Brexit-supporting activists have signalled their intent to hold demonstrations in British cities, including the capital, under the banner “#YellowVestUK”. This comes ahead of the ninth straight weekend of protests across France, with yellow vests now issuing calls on social media for massive cash withdrawals from banks.

    Protesters hope the move will force the government to listen to their demands, notably their call for more direct democracy through the implementation of popular votes that allow citizens to propose new laws. Activist Maxime Nicolle called it the “tax collector’s referendum.” In a video message, Nicolle said “we are going to get our bread back … You’re making money with our dough, and we’re fed up.”

‘Officials’ Worst Nightmare’: Yellow Vests Hope to Trigger Bank Run with Financial Protest

  • ‘Officials’ Worst Nightmare’: Yellow Vests Hope to Trigger Bank Run with Financial Protest
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Yellow Vest protesters are hoping to trigger a bank run with a nationwide coordinated cash withdrawal. By threatening the French financial system, protesters say, they want to peacefully force the government to pass their reforms.

    If the banks weaken, the state weakens immediately,” said Yellow Vest “sympathizer” Tahz San on Facebook. “It’s elected officials’ worst nightmare.”

    Protesters plan to empty their bank accounts on Saturday, withdrawing as much money as possible in a bid to undermine the French banks – if not the euro itself. The plan is to “scare the state legally and without violence,” forcing the government to adopt the movement’s Citizens’ Referendum Initiative, which would allow citizens to propose and vote on new laws. 

    We are going to get our bread back…you’re making money with our dough, and we’re fed up,” said protester Maxime Nicolle in a video message shared on YouTube.

    A well-coordinated financial action has the potential to bring the French banking system – and by extension the euro – to its knees, as banks always hold only a fraction of the funds the country’s citizens have in their accounts. However, most banks limit ATM withdrawals to a relatively low amount, meaning protesters would have to line up inside the banks to withdraw the rest of their money, giving the state plenty of time to place restrictions on withdrawals – though this would, no doubt, spark further protest.

    The financial demonstration is a novel means of circumventing Prime Minister Edouard Philippe’s proposed crackdown on “unauthorized protests,” announced earlier this week after a particularly violent weekend of clashes with armed riot police – including an unexpected appearance by boxer Christophe Dettinger. Philippe has promised 80,000 security forces will be deployed for the next protest.

Yellow Vest BANK RUN Protest? They’re Going For The ROTHSCHILD’S, This Could Be HUGE?!!! 01/12/2019

  • Ultra dangerous move. Not just for banksters but for everyone. It can trigger a European wide financial collapse. Be careful of what you wish for.
  • Press For Truth Published on Jan 9, 2019
    The one thing the government and banksters fear the most is an informed population who understand economics and who see through their system of fractional reserve lending. The yellow vest protest in France has been taking their cause to the streets for weeks now with no real results, so now they’re switching up their strategy in an effort to hack at the root of the problem…the banks. In this video Dan Dicks of Press For Truth explains why this new tactic to create a run on the banks has great potential to put the government in it’s place and to create a ripple effect that may soon be felt and mimicked all over the world.

The guillotine carried the name of ‘En Marche!’ – the party of under-fire President Emmanuel Macron.

China Deploys Missiles Capable of Sinking US Ships — ‘Sink Two Aircraft Carriers’: Chinese Admiral’s Chilling Recipe to Dominate the South China Sea

  • RT America Published on Jan 10, 2019
    China claims to have mobilized its supersonic nuclear missile to safeguard South China Sea. The so-called carrier and anti-ship missile has been deployed to the country’s northwest and if deployed, could cost up to 10,000 US lives. This saber-rattling comes in response to what China calls “grave violations” of their sovereignty. RT America’s Sara Montes de Oca has the story.
  • As long as the trade negotiations do not come up with an agreement, there is a threat of war between USA and China. With USA escalating its attacks on HuaWei, ie. Chinese corporations … it is not a good sign that the trade war will end. The recent rhetoric by Chinese president XiJinPing is also not a good sign:

    Chinese President Xi Jinping gives army its first order of 2019: be ready for battle
    China’s Xi urges military to be ready for war amid ‘risks and challenges’ in 2019
  • ‘Sink Two Aircraft Carriers’: Chinese Admiral’s Chilling Recipe to Dominate the South China Sea
    by Jamie Seidel, https://www.news.com.au/, 2 Jan 2019
    Beijing has a devastating plan to force the world out of the East and South China Seas — and it could cost the US 10,000 lives.

    They’re the pride of the US fleet: enormous 100,000 tonne, 333m long nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. But Beijing thinks they’re Washington’s achilles heel.

    Rear Admiral Lou Yuan has told an audience in Shenzhen that the ongoing disputes over the ownership of the East and South China Seas could be resolved by sinking two US super carriers.

    Taiwan’s Central News Agency (CNA) reports Admiral Lou gave a wide-ranging speech on the state of Sino-US relations. The high-profile, hawkish military commentator reportedly declared the current trade spat was “definitely not simply friction over economics and trade,” but was instead a “prime strategic issue”.

    His speech, delivered on December 20 to the 2018 Military Industry List summit, declared that China’s new and highly capable anti-ship ballistic and cruise missiles were more than capable of hitting US carriers, despite them being at the centre of a ‘bubble’ of defensive escorts. “What the United States fears the most is taking casualties,” Admiral Lou declared. He said the loss of one super carrier would cost the US the lives of 5000 service men and women. Sinking two would double that toll. “We’ll see how frightened America is.”

Fall of Empires: London, Washington & Paris on Brink of Collapse

  • Fall of Empires: London, Washington & Paris on Brink of Collapse
    by George Galloway, https://www.rt.com/
    Despite the thrashing around of the NATO disinformation apparat, the imperial heartland has entered 2019 in a state of complete chaos. Washington, London, and Paris – the three capitals of the Empire – are today effectively ungoverned, shutdown, tottering on the brink of collapse or under siege by their own people.

    Their self-chosen Nemeses – Moscow and Beijing – meanwhile toast the New Year in a state of considerable optimism and self-confidence. These are the facts, this is the news.

    We should start at the top of the Empire. The United States government has closed down amid stasis and a barrage of inter-governmental howitzers. The defense secretary, ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis, has resigned as have other uniformed subalterns angry at the president’s re-found determination to withdraw from costly and losing foreign wars. The actual “mad dog” – John Bolton – openly defies President Trump over Syria, Mueller closes in, and the new Democratic majority in the House gears up to “impeach the mother***er.”

    Nobody knows if President Trump will be around for much longer, and the merest glance at the views of his putative successor – Vice President Mike Pence – recalls the famous picture of President Nixon with his vice president, Spiro Agnew, standing behind him. The satirical speech bubble had Nixon pointing over his shoulder and saying “nobody is going to shoot me with this guy next in line.”

    In London, British Prime Minister Theresa May is a dead woman walking; Britain’s exit from the European Union is still a matter of total uncertainty, yet a mere 80 days away. Violence outside the Parliament has begun to erupt, no faction can command a majority, an election cannot be held because its most likely result would be the election of veteran anti-imperialist Jeremy Corbyn whom the ‘deep state’ would sooner see under arrest (alongside this writer, according to the coup-apparatus Integrity Initiative).

Seattle TV Station Caught Doctoring Trump’s Face During National Address

  • Seattle TV Station Caught Doctoring Trump’s Face During National Address
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    A Seattle Q13 Fox employee has been placed on leave after a disturbing “deepfake” video of President Trump aired during his national address on border security this week, according to mynorthwest.com.

    In addition to dialing up the orange to oompa-loompa proportions, somehow the TV station was able to manipulate Trump on the fly to show him creepily sticking his tongue out at viewers.

    That comparison reveals the Q13 video creating a loop of the President licking his lips — making it seem bizarre and unbalanced — it also seems that someone distorted the President’s face and my have added an orange tone to his skin –mynorthwest.com 

    In a statement to MyNorthWest, Q13’s news director said “We are investigating this to determine what happened,” adding “This does not meet our editorial standards and we regret if it is seen as portraying the President in a negative light. The editor responsible for editing the footage is being placed on leave while we investigate further.

    The most disturbing part of the prank is that Trump’s speech was manipulated in real time – a technological feat known as “Deep Fakes” – a convincing computer generated manipulation which can produce an almost believable impersonation of an individual.

In Western Media, Publishing Fake News about Russia is a Good Career Move… With No Consequences

  • In Western Media, Publishing Fake News about Russia is a Good Career Move… With No Consequences
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Fighting “Russian disinformation” in the West has become a lucrative business. But, in reality, you’re far more likely to encounter deceitful agitprop directed at Russia.

    MOSCOW – CP Scott remains a towering figure in the annals of British journalism. Editor of the then “Manchester Guardian” for an astonishing 57 years, he celebrated his paper’s centenary by laying down a set of legendary principles.

    Comment is free, but facts are sacred,” Scott intoned in the missive. Sadly, almost a hundred years later, facts are free and the right to spread disinformation is becoming sacred, as far as his successors are concerned. Particularly when it comes to coverage of Russia.

    Yet another example came over the New Year break. Following a few weeks out of the spotlight after peddling an obviously fake story about Julian Assange/Paul Manafort meetings in London, Luke Harding reappeared. And he came armed with his particular brand of bulls*** and sloppiness.

    A sensationalist interview with former Soviet spy ‘Viktor Suvorov‘ was full of fragile fact-checking and downright stupidity. For instance, presenting a pensioner, who defected from a different country almost 40 years ago, as an authority on how Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin operates today stretched credulity. And the piece was also riddled with factual errors, to boot.

    For instance, Harding claimed Suvorov’s 1980’s book “Icebreaker” now “has broad acceptance among historians;” a tome which insists “Stalin had been secretly plotting an offensive against Hitler’s Germany” but first he “wanted Hitler to destroy democracy in Europe, in the manner of an icebreaker, thereby clearing the way for world communism.” In other words, not the version you learned at school.

    Except, surprise, surprise, this statement on Suvorov’s book isn’t true. As one scholar pointed out, while demanding a correction from Harding, it’s more accurate to say the opposite is the case. Indeed, the scholar referenced, “Suvorov’s argument was rapidly countered by much of the established Russian historical community,” including Dmitry Volkogonov, “with the support of Western historians.

Italy’s Salvini Suggests ‘European Spring’ to Bring End to ‘German-French Axis’ on Continent

  • Italy’s Salvini Suggests ‘European Spring’ to Bring End to ‘German-French Axis’ on Continent
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Italy’s Euroskeptic deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini has said he wants Italy and Poland to join together to create a “European Spring” which could end the long-standing French and German domination on the continent.

    Speaking during a press conference with Polish Interior Minister Joachim Brudziński in Warsaw on Wednesday, Salvini said that Poland and Italy “will be part of the new spring of Europe, the renaissance of European values” which would create a “new equilibrium” where the dominance of France and Germany is diminished.

    The leader of the Northern League party said that upcoming European parliamentary elections, set for May, could lead away from a Europe “that is run by bureaucrats.”

    Salvini, who is aiming to forge alliances with other Eurosceptic parties across Europe ahead of the elections, was in Warsaw for meetings with members of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party, which shares a similar anti-immigration and anti-Brussels ideology. At the meeting, Brudziński also praised Salvini’s immigration policy and his decision to close Italian ports to migrant boats, saying that Poland was also committed to “strengthening borders.”

    At a press conference with France’s right-wing National Rally leader Marine Le Pen in October, Salvini promised a new era of “common sense” was coming to Europe with the rise of nationalist parties.

    Salvini’s Northern League formed a coalition government with the anti-establishment Five Star Movement in June last year. M5S leader Luigi Di Maio has also been seeking to make friends with other anti-establishment parties across the continent, holding meetings with a number of party leaders from Poland, Croatia and Finland who share similar values.
