Le 49.3 pour forcer l’adoption de la partie recette du budget en France. Bayou Blue News 10/17/2022

Le gouvernement macroniste en France n’ayant qu’une majorité plus que 5relative, c’est l’article 49.3 de la constitution qui sera adopté pour forcer l’adoption du texte.

C’est certainement la façon la plus anti-démocratique qui existe dans la constitution française puisque le texte ne sera pas débattu, encore une exception française qui prouve une fois de plus s’il était nécessaire que ce pays ne soit pas une démocratie.

On se souvient dans les années 80 Michel Rocard alors premier ministre en avait totalement abusé, avec les conséquences que l’on connait.

LE gouvernement macron n’étant que la caisse enregistreuse des directives de Bruxelles, on peut s’attendre a un automne et un hiver très agite en France comme dans le reste de l’Europe…

France – un nombre important de personnes ne pourront pas se chauffer cet hiver. Bayou Blue News 10/16/2022

La communauté Européenne, a toujours des décisions économiques totalement stupides sous le coude, comme cette directive qui oblige l’Energie à se calquer sur le prix du pétrole, du coup, comme il y a un grand nombre de personne qui se chauffent au mazout dans les villes et la campagne de province, avec l’inflation galopante, seul, les plus riches pourront se chauffer, les autres pourront porter leur manteau dans leur maison.

Il en va de même pour ceux qui ont un chauffage électrique, car peu de centrales nucléaires sont en fonction, et les clients payent la mauvaise gestion du secteur de ses 40 dernières années, ce qui va rapidement rendre beaucoup moins sexy les adeptes de la voiture électrique, qui eux aussi risquent d’avoir du mal à payer leur facture, du fait que sur l’Europe un hiver particulièrement froid et long est attendu.

Autant de raisons qui annonce un automne et un hiver particulièrement agite, il ne serait d’ailleurs pas surprenant de revoir les Gilets Jaunes sur les ronds-points.

Difficile de trouver de l’essence en France en ce moment… 10/15/2022

La France est un pays difficile à cerner pour les étrangers, avec son système issu de la royauté qui donne tout pouvoir à un président et un gouvernement élu par une minorité de citoyens puisque les français sont près de 60% à ne plus faire confiance aux élus, lasse par les politiques diverses et varie qui les ont conduits dans un état casi totalitaire.

Pour comprendre ce qui se passe avec  cette grevé dans les raffineries, il faut savoir que seuls quelques nantis et industriels s’en mettent plein les poches en France et que le reste de la population a du mal à s’en sortir, avec plus de 10 millions de pauvres dur 65 millions d’habitants, et compte tenu d’une taxation beaucoup trop importante, bon nombre d’industries ont quitte le territoire depuis quarante ans, et les conséquence économiques de la guerre en Ukraine pourrait entrainer la disparition totale de plusieurs centaine d’entreprises du fait du cout énorme de l’électricité.

Dans le monde du pétrole il y a la direction très grassement payée, et l’employé, payes avec des cacahuètes… Ou presque, et avec une inflation de plus de 10 % en France, contrairement à ce que déclare l’état, une grève de raffinerie qui s’installe dans le temps mettra des semaines à se réguler, il risque donc d’y avoir encore et encore de très longue queue aux stations d’essence.

Rappelons qu’en France il, y a plus de 60 % de taxes imposées par l’état, le prix est si élevé qu’il n’est plus rare de voir des vols d’essence en France.

On comprend donc parfaitement le courrier de l’ambassade des USA envoyés a ses ressortissants, le 14 octobre, qui visiblement a parfaitement compris le danger de ce pays qui est près à exploser tant la vie y devient impossible pour une majorité de personnes, en voici un extrait :


Demonstration Alert – U.S. Embassy Paris, France

(October 14, 2022)


Location:  Nationwide


Event:  Strikes by fuel industry employees have led to fuel shortages around France.  Travelers may find:

  • Gas stations closed, particularly Total and Esso
  • Long lines — some lasting several hours — for gas stations that are open
  • Fuel rationing in some parts of the country
  • Bans on filling fuel cans
  • Limited availability of taxis, rental vehicles, and some buses
  • For prepurchased travel, including tours, the possibility of cancellations or changes

France, des grèves de grande ampleur attendues ce mardi – 10/14/2022

Traditionnellement en France le mois de septembre est le point de départ des grèves en France, il est donc recommandé aux touristes d’éviter la France en cette période, d’autant qu’avec un gouvernement et un président qui sont largement détestés par plus de la moitie de la population et avec toutes les mesures économiques imposées par Bruxelles qui ne passent pas, la France est actuellement comme une cocotte-minute qui peut exploser à tout moment.

Rappelons que ce gouvernement n’a pas de majorité représentative au parlement, ce qui leur complique les choses, même si globalement ils peuvent compter sur les LR pour soutenir les lois économiques les plus dures et les plus liberticides qui ont déjà fait plonger la France dans une forme d’autocratie.

D’ailleurs Macron laisse planer le doute sur une dissolution possible, qui pourrait tout à fait devenir une réalité dans les circonstances actuelle sil la rue finit par empêcher toute forme de reprise économique par des mouvements de grèves toujours plus importants.

Le problème est qu’en cas de dissolution Macron perdrait le peu de soutien qu’il a actuellement, et ferait entre l’extrême droite en force dans le gouvernement, imitant ainsi un mouvement qui touche tous les pays européens, même si la politique de Macron est assez proche de celle de l’extrême droite, reniant toute forme de dialogue et utilisant les mémés élément de langages absconds et mensongers, le pays dans un tel cas de figure, subirait alors un traumatisme encore plus grand.

« Montée en puissance de signalements pour port de tenues et d’accessoires religieux”, selon le ministre de l’Education Pap Ndiaye ». Propos du ministre de l’éducation rapportes par l’agence France presse.

Le résultat de la politique Européenne appliquée a la lettre par la France à force de laisser entrer sur le territoire n’importe qui et ka faute également aux partis politiques en France, de droite comme de gauche, qui suivant le sens du vent, ce sont servis des étrangers comme soupape sociale ou raciste suivant le cas pour servir leurs intérêts.

Il devient très difficile pour les enseignants de pouvoir parler de laïcité, car dans les milieux musulmans en France, ce sont les Frères Musulmans qui remportent l’adhésion des jeunes hommes et des jeunes filles, qu’ils instrumentalisent à des fins politiques.

Une situation devenue incontrôlable et on ne voit pas bien quel parti politique pourrait proposer un début de solution viable, alors que l’Europe ne permet plus à un pays membre d’être souverain autant su ces questions, que sur les questions économiques.

La bourse de Paris en chute libre. Bayou Blue News 10/12/2022

La bourse de Paris a reculé à nouveau de 4.7% ce jeudi, selon l’agence France Presse.

Avec une inflation certainement légèrement au-delà des 10% en France bien que l’Etat prétende le contraire et une grogne sociale qui s’amplifie sous fond de grèves sociales et un gouvernement aux abois qui brandi la peur du 49.3 pour faire passer des reformes économiques imposées par Bruxelles, les choses s’empirent non seulement en France mais dans toute la zone Euro.

Dans les scores de la bourse de Paris, comme toujours le luxe se porte bien, et c’est le seul domaine positif à signaler.
