By meeting in person with Marine Le Pen in the Kremlin Vladimir Putin basically endorsed her. The meeting in Moscow was an unusual step by the Russian President. Reportedly, he made an exception following personal request and introduction by the Russian Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin. Volodin was the one who invited Le Pen to Russia pre-election in the first place.
Why did Putin meet with Le Pen – a step almost unprecedented in Russian history? Contrary to the Western accusations of interfering in the US and EU elections, in fact, neither Russia nor the USSR made a habit of meeting major foreign opposition presidential candidates before elections. The US and EU, on the other hand, play such subversive role all the time: interfering in other countries’ affairs is their traditional MO.
But the situation is changing. The stakes are unusually high, as we go through the Great Earth Shift. The rebalancing act Russia – The Great Balancer is trying to execute is very delicate indeed. Under such conditions old rules go out the window. New moves have to be adopted. Russia begins taking the leaf out of the USA’s book.
As we recall, a year or so before US presidential election 2016, in response to a journalist’s question who Putin preferred as US president, Clinton or Trump, Putin replied almost casually, ‘Trump, but,’ he added immediately, ‘it is for the American people to decide.’
That single phrase served as a catalyst for Trump personally and for his electorate, helping alter the dynamics of US elections and tipping the balance in favor of Trump.
(As you know I predicted Trump victory, as well as the fact that he would experience pressure to conform and betray his election promises, resulting in a ‘straight jacket’ for him and his administration. (Links to relevant Trump ESR16, Webinar and FREE YT videos – if you are new, it is recommended you listen to them.)
When the US Congress, CIA and FBI contend Russia hacked US elections, they are right – it really did happen… by Putin uttering that one phrase. This just goes to show how powerful of an influence Vladimir Putin and Russia – The Great Balancer are on world affairs, no matter how much various forces attempt to isolate or demean Russia’s role.
A simple mention of Trump in a favorable light helped him win. Therefore, a bolder move with France and Le Pen was logical. Le Pen’s visit to Russia and audience with Putin put a nice amount of wind in her wings and helped mobilize her electorate.
However, this time the opposing camp of globalists was prepared. First they twisted into a pretzel the No. 3 finisher Francois Fillon (20%), by compromising him and threatening to bury his entire career. This wasn’t an idle threat – we have seen some years ago how a promising anti-globalist candidate Dominique Strauss-Kahn was literally buried alive as a result of a sex scandal. Then, they introduced their own golden boy, Emmanuel Macron. Created by brilliant image makers and PR specialists, Macron is a very good actor. He fools easily all kinds of potential voters.
Donald Trump also threw his support behind Marine Le Pen. To counter that, Obama, who is (believe it or not) very popular in France, called Macron to congratulate and endorse him.
After the first round, Fillon (20% of votes) and fifth finisher, a pretend ‘socialist’ Hamon (6%), both threw their support behind Macron. Only the fourth finisher, left-wing candidate Melenchon (19% of votes) abstained from any endorsements, suggesting his people should vote as their consciousness dictates.
The Brussels bosses and heads of various EU states hastily joined the fray by praising Macron and urging the French to vote for him. After all the attention and praise, Macron couldn’t be more golden if he tried. During his campaign, he hardly outlined any definitive program, instead borrowing the lines from both Le Pen and Fillon, and occasionally from Melenchon, in order to steal their electorate. Macron doesn’t need to have any coherent program – puppets never do. His puppet masters have the program he is to carry out.
The globalists have unlimited resources, including global media, finances, PR, enormous political and economic leverage, global clandestine intel and surveillance, governments and EU bureaucratic apparatus. They can swing elections the way they want through all these obvious and secret means.
By contrast, Marine Le Pen’s resources are much more limited. However, it is clear that people both in France and all over the West are awakening. A proof that people do decide their destiny and their future, regardless of how much powers that be try to manipulate them into continuing to live in an outdated matrix, is the nearly 8 million votes Le Pen received in the first round.
Therefore, Trump and Putin endorsing Marine Le Pen was done to try to even out the playing field at least somewhat.
Let me explain something about Trump. I did predict he would succumb to pressure, start making deals and dilute, if not forget altogether his campaign promises. The ‘straight jacket’ means that Trump and his admin will operate on survival mode going forward. The tunnel within which he has to act is very narrow. In fact (again, as we discussed in WEBINAR 1 on Trump) he has to constantly throw the bone to the hawks and war mongers at the Pentagon, CIA and Congress. It is akin to a growling dog: if you want to pass, you tread softly past the growling dog, while constantly throwing him some food so he wouldn’t bite you.
While Trump caved in quickly (too quickly for most people’s taste), he still has a limited amount of leverage in his position. His calling Marine Le Pen to congratulate her on getting into round 2 of elections is one of those leverages. Through this gesture, Trump has tried to show that he’s at odds with the EU leaders. But just consider how little power Trump really has: the moment he made that call to Le Pen, Obama in turn called Macron to congratulate and wish him victory! Talk about the bifurcation of the elites in the US and EU!

Among many other things, ESR18 discusses whether Maine Le Pen is ‘the Trump of the EU.’ Included is Lada Ray’s comparative analysis of the characters, values and baggage of both. Who is Mr. Trump? Who is Marine Le Pen? and CRUCIAL DIFFERENCES between them. Lada explains how these differences will have a critical consequence for the French election and EU as a whole.
