Update: Macron Cancels Fuel Tax Hike Completely, Humiliating His PM Who Spoke Only of Suspension; Government in Crisis As Fear of Extreme-Right/Extreme-Left Radical Violence and Even a "Putsch" Grows

There's a lot here.

This is from Le Figaro. This is one of France's two top daily general-interest papers. I don't know if they are known for writing jumped-up, overly dramatic stuff or not. I know there's some of that in French papers, but this seems... dire.

Apparently they realized that people thought their first offer of a "suspension" of the tax was just a trick, and that they planned to immediately impose the tax at the earliest practicable opportunity.

People thought that because that, of course, was exactly the plan.

But now Macron says he's abandoning the hikes completely.

But there's more. A lot more. Macron's more definitive statement was prodded, some in his government say, by fear that there will be a union of extreme left and extreme right radicals to kill government officials and politicians and cops; a "putsch" is feared.

"Yellow Jackets:" Macron cancels the hikes in taxes and corrects Phillipe

That would be Edouard Phillipe, the Prime Minister, and who earlier spoke only of a "suspension" of the gas tax hikes.

L'Elysee [the French White House] has finally decided to abandon entirely and simply the increase planned for 2019. A true repudiation for the Prime Minister.

The below-the-surface differences just burst out into broad daylight. Between Emmanuel Macron and Edouard Phillipe, the stakes are now set. "There's a difference in the each man's course them that is no longer sustainable," said a major player in the [leglislative] Majority. And for that reason, less than 24 hours after the announcement by the Prime Minister of a fiscal pause for six months on the [taxes on] gas and diesel, l'Elysee announced Tuesday night the abandonment pure and simple of the increase initially planned. "The president understood that this notion of a moratorium was considered by the people a half-step, and he considered that we wouldn't have the right to suggest it. [I think they mean: Suggest the possibility of going back on the suspension and re-instituting the tax.] It would be a step too far," said the close advisers of the chief of state this evening.

At the same moment, the National Assembly however reached its fifth hour of debate and readied itself to vote mostly in favor the declaration of Edouard Philippe, who would try again for a "solution... at the end of debate." Put another way, the prime minister left open two options, including the one reestablishing the increase of the famous "carbon tax." This was not the view of l'Elysse. "Except for some stroke of genius in six months, we are not going back to that. For now, one cannot say that it is 'suspended,' because it doesn't even exist. We use then the term 'cancellation,'" reassured the House [a nickname for l'Elysse]. In short, two chimes from very different clocks at the highest level of the State.

More than a simple maess, it was a true repudiation. The presdient had himself picked up his phone to ask Francois de Rugy to relay the new version live on the channel BFMTV. Thus, after having confirmed that the gas tax hikes were "cancelled for the year 2019," the Minister of the Ecological and Interdependence Transition [yeah, I know, these Ministries, huh?] reported the conversation that he'd had some minutes later with the president. "The president told me: 'the people had the impression that this was a trick, that we would tell them this is a suspension but then Pow!, it's back after (the Europeans) [After the European EU elections, they mean.] But with the new word 'cancellation', there isn't a trick," he cleanly decided.

Matignon taken by surprise

At Matignon [basically the White House for the PM], the change in stance of Emmanuel Macron went off like a bomb. Caught flat-footed by the news, the cabinet of the prime minister tried, Tuesday night, to put out the beginnings of an wildfire. "We work in a very close fashion with l'Eyssee. There is a perfect alignment between the prime minister and the president," went the argument. Likewise at l'Elysee where, at the end of then night, a communique -- official, this time --assuring that the two executives spoke together "in concert." It didn't prevent this incident from leaving deep tracks. And to also pose the question of knowing how l'Eysee had decided to brutally seize control.

Okay, that's the "Government in disarray" part of the article.

Now comes the "Government in fear' part. This is some scary stuff.

Tuesday evening, some explanations regarding security were implicitly suggested. Some alarmist information circulated about the protests on Saturday. And notably the about the degree of unprecedented violence that these protests might reach, fomented by a "hard, radicalized cell" originating "simultaneously from the extreme right and the extreme left."

The "Calls to Kill"

The intelligence services would have [see below] bluntly signaled to l'Eyssee "calls to kill and to arm themselves with guns for attacking the legislators, the government, the executive, and the police forces." According to our information, an important minister had even received an order to forbid his workers and associated ministers from showing up at work this weekend. "There are putschists [revolutionaries, e.g., Hitler's putsch]. We are in an attempted putsch," was put forward to us in the most serious manner in the world at the presidential palace.

Note that French newspapers resort to this tentative "would" or "would have" tense when they are re-reporting stuff other papers have said and cannot confirm themselves, or are unsure of it for other reasons.

One thing is sure, the "Act IV" of the movement of the "Yellow Jackets" can be a turning point if Paris is set to fire again. "If there are ten deaths this weekend, int unot sure that we could keep the Minister of the Interior," whispered someone close to the head of state. The perspective of a cabinet reshuffling markedly larger [than getting rid of the Minister of the Interior] begins to circulate in an insistent fashion. To the point of changing the prime minister? "In the best of cases, there must be a new government before the European elections. In the worst, before Christmas," said a macronist of the inner circle.

The word used to describe the order that ministers should not go to work this weekend was consigne, which, interestingly and perhaps importantly, has a secondary meaning of an order specifically confining soldiers to barracks.

Well I don't know that to make of that. We've heard claims of this "Extreme Right/Extreme Left" union before, and it didn't seem like it actually was a union -- just opportunists both seizing on chaos to commit violence and vandalism for independent reasons.

I don't know how seriously France is taking this idea, or how seriously we should take it.

I don't know how serious these whispers of a "putsch" are, or the threats to kill politicians, workers, and cops, but I guess you can't take chances.

So: Those are the reasons reported for the shift in France from a mere "suspension" of the gas tax to a full-on cancellation, abandonment, burial at sea of it.

107 France is falling apart in other ways. Parallel to the Gilets Jaunes is a student* protest which has been violent all over the country.

*(middle and high school students, not university students)

They're ostensibly protesting new rules making college admission more difficult and a fear that teaching positions will be eliminated. In any case they're burning cars and trash, fighting with police, and getting arrested by the hundreds.

They've endorsed the Gilets Jaunes and are also calling for Macron to resign.

On the other hand, if this thing does get out of hand, the effects won't just be in France but will be a juicy opportunity for bad actors in other places to raise hell. Just like an earthquake, the reverberations can continue to kick your ass where you least expect it or can afford to.

I still get some of my TV news from the France24 English-language broadcasts and my current thinking goes like this:

If one assumes that the triumph of Progressivism needs the re-tribalization of our society and culture, then where is France today. Well-divided, says I.

Africans, migrants, Muslims, sexual dysfunctionals, eco-nazis, women, and probably etc. all getting some degree of benefits from the governing elites. So, with the "yellow jackets" (that delightful bit of government required couture) are we seeing the evolution of a "tribe" consisting of those stuck in the middle between the governing elites and the officially supported already-arrived evolved tribes mentioned above.

Or, if France had a Hillary Clinton, "Les Deplorables".

Are they saying the intelligence services have (reportedly) sent their analysis indicating the protesters are planning to go after gov't members.

OR

Are they saying the intelligence services THEMSELVES are possibly in revolt?

As an aside, we have both of those things here, just not at the same high level.

386 This is where politicians are pieces of excrement. It's a patently obvious situation where a majority of French citizens thinks their "leader's" ideas are just plain wrong. Therefore, he does not represent a majority of his citizens. Anyone with a sense of decency and integrity would voluntarily step down and remove themselves from office. Instead, the mentality is that politicians know better...but you're just too stupid to see that.

HP makes some supercomputer class stuff domestically and it definitely on the verboten list to ship to Iran.

You need an export license from Treasury to ship technology of this class anywhere, and in your application you have to disclose the final shipping point, the prospective owner and what they're going to use it to do. If Huawei lied on those license applications that would be a serious problem.

Virtually everything is on that list. One of my dealings with the FBI a couple years ago was when some of my companies products showed up in Iran. We sold everything through distributors so it was difficult to insure where things ended up, particularly in the middle east.

If they shipped an HP printer to Iran they were likely in violation and Huawei is a particularly bad actor. I assume it was a lot more than a printer.

https://preview.tinyurl.com/y9okzljc

Four individuals have been charged in an indictment unsealed today in the Southern District of New York with wire fraud, tax fraud, money laundering and other offenses in connection with their alleged roles in a decades-long criminal scheme perpetrated by Mossack Fonseca and Co. ("Mossack Fonseca"), a Panamanian-based global law firm, and related entities. . .


"Today we announce the indictment of four individuals who allegedly defrauded the U.S. government through a large scale, intercontinental money laundering and wire fraud scheme, associated with Mossack Fonseca and its affiliates," said HSI Special Agent-in-Charge Angel M. Melendez. "HSI's El Dorado Task Force, together with the IRS, built a case that uncovered an alleged complex trail of offshore shell corporations and bogus foundations used to disguise the beneficial ownership of huge amounts of money. These efforts reflect the commitment of U.S. law enforcement to follow that trail and apprehend these criminals regardless of where they are in the world."

And arresting the CFO of one of the biggest companies in the world, Huewai is bigger than Apple and nippig at Samsung, is a pretty fucking big deal.


This would be akin to Taiwan arresting Tim Cooke and extraditing him to China for violating Chinese laws.


Come to think of it, I wouldn't really mind if China arrested Tim Cook, but I digress.


There is no good reason for this arrest and a their will be a tremendous amount of fallout from it.

465 When you consider the number of unaccounted for small arms in the world wars, it is likely that every farm has something stashed "just in case" and a lot of bureau drawers in the cities have a pistol or two. The Ruby variants, 7.65 pistols were bought by France from Spain on a standing order of 50000 a month or better in WW1. Maybe 50000 total went to colonies after WW1, and approx. 5000 went to assistance for Finland during the winter war. I would venture a guess less than half were turned in when soldiers mustered out.

Their major error in that is that the process naturally takes hold first in men in their own orbit, leaving them with a period of vulnerability. This is especially pronounced when their political opponents have been sending their men off to war for 2 decades straight.

481 First suspicion is that the "putsch"/violence intimations were just cover for the humiliating back-down, but who knows. Seems little has changed over there - most of the "sympathy" strikes/demos were just typical demands for more $$$$. Other than demanding more $$$$, few in western Europe seem to be able to bestir themselves to do anything, about anything. They used to engage in incredibly idiotic and irresponsible demos against their own security (i.e. US and NATO activities), which was impressive in a pathetic way, but since then, nada.

482 The Army deployment confirms my suspicion, that the situation is far more serious than has been reported. Macron is toast no matter how this plays out, he managed to provoke major civil unrest. God help them if there are serious casualties. If that happens, hold on to yer butts, because that is going to be an E ticket ride, destination unknown.

487 Rhomboid,
Under hate crime legislation, the government could act against those who want immigration from outside Europe stopped--they can't charge those wanting an economic tax issue stopped under that legislation. Once the masses are mobilized then anything can happen as the French "know" that their lives are not improving day by day.

Plus, the government cannot find any "leaders" of the movement to compromise which is the typical government actions to defuse the protests. This is some serious stuff at least comparable to the 1968 protests--the French have a history of street action affecting regimes far more than the phlegmatic English in the last two centuries. The reported involvement of middle aged folks in these actions is a canary in the coal mine.

488 484,
Ace, from my humble understanding, the Interior ministry has basically two police forces--one is a paramilitary force --the Police Gendarmerie which is similar to the Guardia in Spain for internal unrest/terrorism/large scale lawlessness, and the other is the ordinary type police (Police Nationale) we have at home except directed by the Interior ministry on the national level. Then there is the Army.

Everybody and their uncle knew that GERMAN immigration policy was unsustainable. Somebody was getting genocided, the only question being who. If you didn't know Europe was going to be burning in the next 10 years then you weren't paying attention. I'm still not sure that this isn't just a dumpster fire instead of the real thing, but the real thing is coming and that's inevitable and very predictable.
