French President Emmanuel Macron Suffers Stunning Setback As His Poor Handling Of The COVID-19 Crisis Has Left France Deeply In Debt

For a man who had aspired to rule like the Roman god Jupiter, the pandemic has left Emmanuel Macron and his vision of a multilateral world order in tatters and his own leadership back in France in question.

This is exciting, now we get to see just what Emmanuel Macron is really made up of, and how he does or does not rebound from this current setback will show us if our previous assessment of his astonishing similarities to the biblical Antichrist were well founded or misplaced. Remember one thing, though, Adolf Hitler was looking like the Antichrist right up to the moment they put him in jail where everyone said his days were over. But they were just getting started. Quo vadis, Emmanuel Macron, quo vadis?

“Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle. And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.” Daniel 11:20,21 (KJB)

Emmanuel Macron has repeatedly likened himself to the Roman god Jupiter, which is a very telling comparison if one is aware of ancient Rome and their oppression of the Jews in Israel. In 132 AD, the Bar-Kochba revolt against Rome took place because the Romans had erected a statue of their god Jupiter right on the Temple Mount. If Macron sees himself as Jupiter then that only further cements his standing as leader in the end times Antichrist sweepstakes.

“That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.” Acts 1:25 (KJB)

I will be watching with an extremely high interest level as Emmanuel Macron attempts to dig himself out of this hole, and restore his former glory. I am rooting for him to do just that. He’s come all the way out of his own place for such a time as this, and failure is not an option.

The Humbling of Emmanuel Macron

FROM BLOOMBERG: Just four months ago, with the gardens of his Elysee Palace in the background, the youngest French head of state since Napoleon boasted that the country “hasn’t known such energy in years.” With re-election two years away, he vowed his plans to cut taxes and reduce red tape would put France at the heart of a reinvigorated European Union.

Today, such confidence seems a world away after his struggle to get a grip on the coronavirus epidemic left Macron damaged at home and abroad.

The EU’s second-biggest economy registered its first case of Covid-19 in January but for weeks the government insisted that wearing a facemask was useless for the public, even as the disease coursed through French society. Macron didn’t impose a lockdown until March, when Italy and Spain had already shuttered most businesses. In a dramatic U-turn, the government is now encouraging people to wear masks when venturing outdoors.

One official in his office, speaking on condition of anonymity, acknowledged the government fumbled its response in the early stages, but insisted it has the situation under control now. Government spokeswoman Sibeth Ndiaye told Europe 1 radio Friday that the policy on masks had evolved along with the scientific advice.  A press officer at the Elysee declined to comment.

As the death toll in France climbed past 25,000, the president’s dithering was in stark contrast to Angela Merkel’s sober, methodical approach next door in Germany.

Macron had seemed to eclipse the German chancellor when he burst onto the stage in 2017, with Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, the European anthem, at his election-night rally. But as France tries to return to a new kind of normality with the tentative reopening of its economy on Monday, it’s piling up debt while Merkel has fiscal reserves to spare. Put simply, France will struggle to spend its way out the recession in the same way as its neighbor.

CLICK TO SEE WHAT EMMANUEL MACRON HAS BEEN UP TO

For a politician who’s gone toe-to-toe with Donald Trump and urged the EU to stand up to China, the scale of the crisis and his own role in it has forced a degree of introspection. As he said in one of several televised statements in April, “it’s a moment to start again from scratch.”

A government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said it was too early to say who had handled the crisis better and pointed to France’s successes, such as treating its gravest cases in hospitals and coordinating with international allies on a vaccine conference.

With his approval ratings slipping, Macron himself has also recognized that his administration fell short. “Were we prepared for this crisis? Obviously, not enough,’’ he said last month. “This moment, let’s be honest, has revealed cracks.’’

For Philippe Maniere, president of crisis management consultancy Vae Solis, Macron’s making a political calculation. “He needs to change course to get back on his feet — he’s being tactical,” he said. Even before the crisis there were signs that Macron might have to adjust his approach, with his lectures on everything from Iran to climate change at global summits failing to produce results, despite the personal chemistry he seemed to enjoy with the U.S. president.

Macron couldn’t persuade Trump to stick with the Paris Climate Agreement, failed to keep the U.S. in the Iran nuclear deal or indeed stop it undermining the World Trade Organization. When Macron pursued a coordinated international push for a coronavirus vaccine, it became clear the U.S. was out for itself. White House tariff threats meanwhile forced the French president to suspend his plans to tax internet giants like Google and Amazon.com Inc. on their revenue from France.

At home, his first wobble came after the Yellow Vest protests – a movement sparked by a hike in gasoline taxes but fundamentally driven by anger at economic injustice and perceptions of the president’s at times arrogant manner. The seeds were sown as far back as 2018, when he ruffled feathers with a video that went viral of him scolding a teenager for not addressing him as “Mr. President” and spoke to the nation about inequality from a gold desk.

Outside France, his demand for EU reform had become increasingly shrill as opponents like the Dutch and the Austrians stonewalled his calls for tighter integration or, when he did win support for a euro-area budget, diluted his original proposals to the point of irrelevance.

All this meant that when disaster struck, his political capital was running low. With his handling of the virus coming under fire in France, his credibility with EU partners was further weakened and calls for joint euro-area bond issuance to fund the economic recovery were easily brushed off. His fall-back proposal of grants from an EU fund has fared little better so far.

Macron’s warnings that the EU risks collapse if the Dutch don’t accept his demands grow more hollow with each repetition.

Perhaps expectations were too great when he came to power in the aftermath of Trump’s shocking election victory and the Brexit referendum, promising a progressive renewal for France and Europe. Perhaps he was guilty of fueling those expectations with his pre-election talk of how France wanted its president to be god-like. But the impression among some European officials now is, ‘who is he to tell us what to do’?

If Macron is realizing that he may never strike the grand bargain he wants for Europe, disenchantment with the political prodigy set in even sooner back home.

Like most world leaders, Macron initially failed to grasp the dangers of Covid-19 and as March’s municipal elections approached with Italy and then Spain in lockdown, calls mounted for the ballot to be delayed.

But Macron feared that would expose him to political attacks, so the vote went ahead, potentially exposing thousands of people to infection. A day later, the president who had vowed to rein in the state, announced 300 billion euros of government loan guarantees and halted his economic reforms. The government made clear it wouldn’t hesitate to take equity stakes in companies if necessary and the state is paying more than half the private sector workforce to stay home.

Far-left leader Jean-Luc Melenchon attacked Macron for stealing his policy ideas. It’s an ironic political journey for Macron, the son of a doctor from northern France who studied at one of most prestigious institutions in Paris and worked as Rothschild & Co. investment banker. He’s spent more than a decade honing his world view among the educated, Parisian elites before he came to power promising to make France a “start-up nation” by paring back the role of the state and courting foreign investors.

But the truth is that Macron is grasping for a new identity. The Jupiter-like stance he’d envisaged before his election just an embarrassing memory. READ MORE

As We Expected, Emmanuel Macron Is The First Stop On The Schedule For Crown Prince And Newly Appointed UAE President Mohamed Bin Zayed

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The UAE’s new president, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, holds talks today with French counterpart Emmanuel Macron as world leaders stream in to the oil-rich Gulf state to pay tribute to his late predecessor.

If you still can’t see it by now, then you’re willfully ignorant, because to me, Emmanuel Macron as the biblical ‘man of sin’ who is on year number 5 of trying to take over Europe, fills the bill in just about every way possible. So when Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed, creator of the Abraham Accords and the right hand man of Pope Francis in Chrislam, makes his first stop after becoming supreme ruler of the United Arab Emirates, where does he go? Directly to a meeting with Emmanuel Macron.

“For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.” Proverbs 25:7 (KJB)

Here’s a fun fact, Mohamed bin Zayed as you know is a prince, but so is Emmanuel Macron, he is the prince of Andorra. Proverbs tells us that it is better to “come up hither”, an obvious reference to the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, than to remain ‘down low’ in the ‘presence of the prince’. Aren’t you glad that we who are saved will be removed up into the clouds on Flight #777 when these princes step up into the real reason they’re here? I sure am!

New UAE president Mohamed bin Zayed elects to meet Emmanuel Macron first before any other world leader, why?

FROM THE TIMES OF ISRAEL: Emmanuel Macron, on his first foreign trip since his second term started last week, expresses his condolences to the leader dubbed MBZ following the death of his half-brother Sheikh Khalifa on Friday after a long illness.

Macron, the first Western leader to pay his respects, will be followed by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, US Vice President Kamala Harris and Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Israel’s President Isaac Herzog and the king of Spain, among a long list of dignitaries.

The United Arab Emirates has begun wielding increased influence in the Middle East and further afield due to its wealth, oil resources and strategic location.

Mohamed bin Zayed has been quietly running the country since 2014 when Sheikh Khalifa, his 73-year-old half-brother, was sidelined by a stroke. The cause of his death was not announced. READ MORE

On Europe Day 2022, Emmanuel Macron Stuns By Calling For Creation Of A New European Political Body To Rival The European Union And With More Power

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Emmanuel Macron has called for a new political organisation to unite democracies on the European continent, as he warned that Ukraine would probably not join the EU for several decades.

Europe Day is a day to celebrate peace and unity throughout Europe. On this day, according to the official site, it is our collective duty to revitalize the European dream and re-invigorate European integration. COVID-19 has proven to us however that to protect the lives and health of citizens and preserve our economy, the European Union must take robust actions, proportionate to the dangers threatening us. Therefore, we call on liberals to join us in mobilising local politicians and civil society for a large pro-European movement on 9 May to celebrate European unity and peace. Emmanuel Macron used today to call for the creation of a new European political group with real power, with him ostensibly as its leader.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJB)

Every time the man opens his mouth to speak, he moves himself one step closer to the biblical man of sin that we have been telling you he likely is. In 2017, Emmanuel Macron said his desire was to “rule Europe like the god Jupiter”, and today during Europe Day 2022 celebrations, Macron reiterated his desire to do just that.

Macron calls for new European body and warns Ukraine of EU wait

FROM THE GUARDIAN UK: Speaking two days after being sworn in for a second term as French president, Emmanuel Macron called for big thinking on the future of Europe, saying the war in Ukraine showed the need for a “historic process of reflection”.

Emmanuel Macron also said that Europe must learn from its past mistakes to ensure Russia is not ‘humiliated’ in peace negotiations.

He proposed “a European political community … a new European organisation [that] would enable democratic European nations who adhere to our values to find a new space for political cooperation”, listing security, energy, transport, infrastructure investment and movement across borders, especially for young people, as issues that body would tackle. Being part of this organisation would not exclude a country from joining the EU, and the organisation could include “those who have left” the bloc, he said.

Macron’s intervention comes as EU states clash on how quickly to move forward with Kyiv’s membership application. The question is likely to reach a crunch point in June, when EU leaders decide whether to grant Ukraine candidate status, a procedural step that normally takes years to attain.

Macron suggested he favoured a quick decision on candidate status, while dampening Kyiv’s hopes of a speedy entry into the EU. The awarding of candidate status is followed by talks on accession and a process of reform so that a country meets the EU’s political, economic and legal criteria.

“Even if we were to give it the status of candidate country tomorrow – I hope we move forward towards accession rapidly – even if we were to do that, we all know only too well the process for accession would take several years; in truth, it would probably take several decades. And that is the truth unless we decide to lower the standards for accession and rethink the unity of our Europe, and also partially the principles that we hold,” he said.

“The European Union, given its level of integration and ambition, cannot be the only way to structure the European continent in the short term.” READ MORE

Emmanuel Macron Makes His Move Deeper Into The Muslim World Creating ‘Strategic Partnership’ With Abraham Accords Author Mohamed Bin Zayed

Sheikh Mohamed said to Emmanuel Macron that he is looking forward to expanding the cooperation between their countries to serve the interests of their countries and peoples, and continuing joint work to promote peace and stability in the Middle East and globally.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Abraham Accords author Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, congratulated French President Emmanuel Macron, on his re-election as President of France.

Now that the dust is settling on the recent presidential election in France, Emmanuel Macron is going deeper into the Muslim world by bolstering ties with Abraham Accords author Mohamed bin Zayed, who is also the right hand man of Pope Francis on the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity we like to call Chrislam. This means that we will soon see some major progress on the Abraham Accords, and it will come through Emmanuel Macron.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJB)

Let’s just stop and pause for a moment, and consider the complex and intricate turn of events that have led us to where we are right now on the end times timeline. At the same time that Jared Kushner was creating the Abraham Accords with Mohamed bin Zayed, Pope Francis was secretly meeting with Mohamed bin Zayed to set the stage for the signing of the covenant between the Roman Catholic Church and Islam known as the Declaration of Human Fraternity. The same problem – how do you get peace between Jews and Muslims – was being attacked from both sides at the same time, with the same man, Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed, the link pin throughout the whole thing. Now we add Emmanuel Macron to that exact same mix, as this article today will show you, and what do you wind up with? The biblical man of sin on the verge of being revealed so we who are sitting on Flight #777 can get up and out of here. But please, go back to being distracted with Roe v. Wade and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Mohamed bin Zayed congratulates Emmanuel Macrons on re-election

FROM EMIRATES NEWS AGENCY: This came in a phone conversation where the two leaders discussed the prospects of enhancing the relations between their countries in various fields.

Sheikh Mohamed said he is looking forward to expanding the cooperation between their countries to serve the interests of their countries and peoples, and continuing joint work to promote peace and stability in the Middle East and globally. For his part, the French President expressed his thanks and appreciation to His Highness Sheikh Mohamed for the thoughtful gesture, and congratulated him on the occasion of Eid Al Fitr, wishing the UAE and its people further development and prosperity.

Gulf states see Macron victory as positive development

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: The UAE has congratulated Emmanuel Macron on his reelection in France. The Gulf states could benefit from renewed French interest in the region. The UAE signed a historic deal to purchase 80 Rafale warplanes made in France last year. France is also close to Egypt, Greece, Cyprus and the UAE in many security discussions.

“President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan sent a cable of congratulations to Emmanuel Macron on his reelection win as President of France,” Khaleej Times media in the Gulf reported. “Sheikh Khalifa wished Macron continued success in achieving more progress and prosperity for the people of France, stressing the UAE’s keenness to continue developing relations between the two countries in various fields for the common good and interest of their peoples.”

“His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, sent two similar messages of congratulations to Macron,” the report said.

The UAE was “one of the French defense industry’s biggest customers,” France 24 reported last year.

The UAE also agreed to buy 12 Caracal military transport helicopters, the French presidency said in a statement at the time, according to reports. “This is an outcome of the strategic partnership between the two countries, consolidating their capacity to act together for their autonomy and security,” the statement said.

“The Arab countries – especially the Gulf states – are looking forward to more cooperation with Paris in the next stage, as President Macron was and still attaches great importance to his country’s partnership with the Arab Gulf states, specifically Saudi Arabia and the UAE, which he visited on his last Arab tour months ago,” the report said.
