Macron Says Europe Must Not Become ‘America’s
Followers’ In Confrontation With China

French President Emmanuel Macron said over the weekend that Europe should embrace an approach of “strategic autonomy” when it comes to tensions between the United States and China. The French president said that by allying too closely with the U.S., Europe risks being dragged into conflicts and crises in which it does not have a significant interest. “Strategic autonomy,” as Macron calls it, is his plan to lead Europe into becoming a “third superpower,” according to POLITICO. “The paradox would be that, overcome with panic, we believe we are just America’s followers,” Macron said on Sunday. “The question Europeans need to answer … is it in our interest

Thus is just Macaroni admitting openly that NATO is just about the USA being Europe's 'female dog" and protecting them with no return help expected.

The USA ran the invaders out of France twice in the last century. They must not teach that in history classes in France. General George Patton remarked that he would rather have two German divisions in front of him than a French division behind him.

I am not following Biden either, so I have nothing to say about Macron, except that the French are in the streets because of his policies. So why do the French keep electing him? Or is Macron using the same Nazi electoral procedures as the Democrats?

For quite a while I have been hoping that the Europeans would in essence kick the Yanks out of Europe. The European Union along with the United Kingdom have a greater population than the United States and in aggregate is just as rich. It can afford to handle its own security. Early in the Ukraine war France and Germany wanted to negotiate a settlement between Russia and Ukraine. The United States put a stop to that. It's disgraceful that these two countries complied but more disgraceful that our country pressured them. There is not one Western European country that is as ill-run as our country. Voting integrity, fiscal prudence and the rule of the law no longer exist here. Our country exports the woke insanity, that is quickly destroying our cohesion, to other countries and the Europeans, especially the French, have had quite enough of that. To those who harp on our aid to Europe during both World Wars as a rationale for Europe to join us in our self-immolation, should we have been subservient to France since without its aid, both financial and militarily, the Independence war would have ended with Britain victorious. After the way we scuttled from Afghanistan it is ridiculous to criticize any country for losing a war. I will always remember that when Kabul was evacuated the French, British and German soldiers went house to house delivering their citizens to the airport. Our troops were confined to the airport and our citizens had to make it to the airport on their own.

Regardless how one views the history or current stance of France, Russia, China, Europe or the United States the continued global hegemony with the US being its sole leader has ceased. This started well before Biden but has accelerated greatly with him as POTUS. The only way it can be reconstituted is through global war and that is the goal for many in DC and Europe. But even if that were successful it will never be as before. The question everyone now as to ask themselves and this includes everyone as well as countries is do you wish to sacrifice millions of lives to submit to the current character and ideaology of the United States. For the majority of the world the answer is No.

As others have said, Micron is taking the General DeGaulle approach of being a pain in the butt. If it were not for the USA, the UK, and Canada that landed their armies in Normandy on D Day to give France back to the French, France today is likely to have had a long history being annexed to Nazi Germany.

WASHINGTON — Former Obama White House stenographer Mike McCormick tells The Post that he wants to testify before the federal grand jury in Delaware considering charges against first son Hunter Biden, saying he has relevant information — ignored by the FBI — that implicates President Biden in a foreign influence-peddling “conspiracy.” “Joe Biden committed crimes in Ukraine in a conspiracy with [current national security adviser] Jake Sullivan,” McCormick said. “I’m a witness to that happening.” McCormick visited Ukraine with then-Vice President Biden three times and says that on a 2014 trip, Sullivan — then a Biden national security aide — briefed reporters

Former President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he would 'never drop out' of the presidential race even if he got convicted of a crime, telling Fox News' Tucker Carlson, 'It's not my thing.' During a Tuesday sit-down at Mar-a-Lago, Carlson had asked if there was anything prosecutors could throw at Trump legally that would convince him to drop out of the 2024 White House race. The former president said there was not. 'No, I'd never drop out. I'd never drop out,' he replied. 'It's not my thing, I wouldn't do it.'

Why are IQs dropping? 23 replies

For decades IQs were climbing in the Western World. It was called the “Flynn effect.” Average IQs were defined as 100 in each succeeding iteration of the IQ test, as by definition the average was normed to 100. But if you rescored earlier IQ tests based upon prior norms, the average IQ would have increased by about 15 points or one standard deviation. In other words, if you took an IQ test in 1942 and scored 100, by today’s scoring you would have an IQ of 86. That is, until the past 10 or so years. In the past 10 years, IQs have been dropping, and dropping pretty fast.

Anheuser-Busch distributors in the South were “spooked” by the widespread backlash Bud Light received after teaming up with transgender social media star Dylan Mulvaney. The intense opposition to Mulvaney promoting the beer has been alarming to Anheuser-Busch distributors, which placed fewer orders after the partnership sparked outrage from conservatives who argued the company is pushing “gender propaganda,” according to a Beer Business Daily report reviewed by Fox News. “We reached out to a handful of A-B [Anheuser-Busch] distributors who were spooked, most particularly in the Heartland and the South, and even then in their more rural areas,” the popular beer industry trade publication wrote.

President Joe Biden signed legislation Monday to end the national emergency for Covid-19, the White House said, in a move that will not affect the end of the separate public health emergency scheduled for May 11. A White House official downplayed the impact of the bill, saying the termination of the emergency "does not impact our ability to wind down authorities in an orderly way." The bill to end the national emergency cleared the Senate last month in a bipartisan 68-23 vote and passed the House earlier this year with 11 Democrats crossing party lines to vote for the joint resolution. "Since Congress voted to terminate the National Emergency earlier than anticipated,

In his lawsuit, the Democratic D.A. said he's taking legal action "in response to an unprecedently brazen and unconstitutional attack by members of Congress on an ongoing New York State criminal prosecution and investigation of former President Donald J. Trump." Bragg is asking a judge to invalidate subpoenas that Jordan, the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, has or plans to issue as part of an investigation of Bragg's handling of the Trump case.
