Riots Ensue In Paris After Emmanuel Macron Uses Special Constitutional Powers To Force Through Retirement Age Bill Against The Wishes Of His People

French President Emmanuel Macron imposed a highly unpopular bill raising the retirement age from 62 to 64 on Thursday by shunning parliament and invoking a special constitutional power.

Maybe Emmanuel Macron is not the biblical man of sin, we think he is, but even if not he sure has a lot of Antichrist-like tendencies like forcing through a bill that, to date, millions of French people have taken to the streets of Paris to protest. The French people absolutely do not want the retirement age to be raised, but Macon used a little-known power granted him by the French constitution to force it through. Now police are arriving to the streets in riot vans, prepared for the worst.

“And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.” Daniel 11:3 (KJB)

Remember the time that Emmanuel Macron and his elderly wife visited President Trump at the White House, and raised up the horns of Satan, the sign of Antichrist, over Washington, DC? Ahh, good times, good times. Yes sir, as I see it, Emmanuel Macron is on a trajectory that is going nowhere but up, and once arrived at, will last for right around 7 fun-filled years. In the meantime, it’s ‘practice, practice, practice’ for the man of sin in training. “Liberté!, Egalité!, Fraternité!”, right, Manny?


Macron shuns parliament to raise French retirement age

FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS: Lawmakers were shouting, their voices shaking with emotion as Macron made the risky move, which is expected to trigger quick motions of no-confidence in his government. Riot police vans zoomed by outside the National Assembly, their sirens wailing.

The proposed pension changes have prompted major strikes and protests across the country since January. Macron, who made it the flagship of his second term, argued the reform is needed to keep the pension system from diving into deficit as France’s population ages and life expectancy lengthens. The decision to invoke the special power was made during a Cabinet meeting at the Elysée presidential palace, just a few minutes before the scheduled vote, because Macron had no guarantee of a majority in France’s lower house of parliament.

Then, as Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne tried to formally announce the decision at the National Assembly, leftist members broke into the French national anthem, delaying her speech. The speaker had to briefly suspend the session to restore order.

“Today, there’s uncertainty” about whether a majority would have voted for the bill “by just a few votes,” Borne explained. “We cannot take the risk to see 175 hours of parliamentary debate collapse … We cannot gamble on the future of our pensions. That reform is necessary,” she said.

Borne said her government is accountable to the parliament, prompting boos from the ranks of the opposition.

“In a few days, I have no doubts … there will be one or several no-confidence motions. There will actually be a proper vote and therefore the parliamentary democracy will have the last say,” she added.

One by one, opposition lawmakers emerged from the Assembly demanding the government step down. One Communist lawmaker called the presidential power a political “guillotine.” Others called it a “denial of democracy” that signals Macron’s lack of legitimacy. One union leader called it “institutional violence” and called for more strikes and protests. READ MORE

French lawmakers stand in protest against moves by Emmanuel Macron

Members of France’s National Assembly broke parliamentary rules by waving placards, booing the prime minister and singing the Marseillaise, protesting President Macron’s plan to push through an unpopular increase in the retirement age without a vote.

After weeks of targeted strikes, French President Emmanuel Macron refuses to change course on his plans to reform the country’s beloved pension system. Last week, unions across France upped the ante and launched an indefinite strike to force his hand.
