Jacques Chirac: French patriot and statesman

The last independent French president was Jacques Chirac (1995-2007). He made his citizens proud when it was reported that he told George W. Bush, over the telephone, “to go hell”, when asked to join America’s phony “Coalition of the Willing”, to invade and destroy Iraq in 2003. Thereafter, the American boll weevils, bed bugs and termites infested and still do, the halls of French power, from the Elysée (France’s White House), to France’s CIA (called the DGSE), to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (its Department of State) to the military. After real independent leaders, left and right, like De Gaulle, D’Estaing and Mitterrand, France’s once proud tradition of political self-determination is now a mirage, to coin a great French word. Most importantly, even though they had to deal with the Princes of Power wanting way more than their fair share, they were all patriots who put their people and their country first. That all changed when Chirac left office.

Nicolas Sarkozy: CIA sellout

President Nicolas Sarkozy (2007-2012) was America’s first confirmed French whore. His father’s side of the family was in bed with the CIA and The fruit did not fall far from the tree. After rejoining France to NATO, he and David Cameron took Hilary Clinton’s cue, bombing progressive, socialist, visionary, pan-African Libya into rubble. Their agents sodomized with a rifle barrel and then brutally murdered its people’s very popular leader, Muhammar Kaddafi. This was all luridly filmed for Western audiences, to brag about, over bowls of popcorn. “We came, we saw, he died”, Hillary chortled, and “Sarko” was right by her side Sarkozy was and is a shallow, vain JFK wannabe. His presidential team was made up almost exclusively of CIA/US Department of State traitors, carefully cultivated for decades, via the French-America Foundation (FAF). His five years as president shamefully mirrors this treason.

François Hollande: a poodle in Uncle Sam’s lap

François Hollande was the next president (2012-2017), a supposed socialist, whose team was another Elysée full of FAF turncoats. Hollande put France fully on its knees, in the fellatio position to satisfy Uncle Sam’s every demand, and never once got up. His ignominious presidency will go down in French history, as one of the weakest and most craven on record.

Emmanuel Macron: the perfect Yankee turncoat

America’s owners are now France’s owners and they have assiduously groomed their next Manchurian president, Emmanuel Macron. A FAF member, he is Western propaganda’s perfect neoliberal puppet, who will gladly take Hollande’s kneeling position and never come up for air. Uncle Sam, with his deep state, oil banks, transnational corporations, NATO and the EU, is gloating over his continental concubine, Marianne. She is the allegorical symbol of France, who used to proudly represent the Goddess of Liberty, as well as reason. With her neck firmly under the crushing throttle of Washington, she is now a disgraced, 21st century Yankee prostitute.

As a citizen who is proud of France’s independence, revolutions and philosophers, these are very, very dark days for China Rising Radio Sinoland host Jeff J. Brown. For Westerners, one could say that France’s spiral downwards is the canary in the colonial mines. The bird is comatose and near death.

Ms. Diana Johnstone

Diana Johnstone really knows how to capture France’s sociopolitical zeitgeist. Based in France for many years, she recently wrote two terrific articles about this year’s French presidential elections:

Jeff was so impressed that he wanted to share Ms. Johnstone’s sage understanding of French-, as well as European- and American politics, with his fans across the globe.

Diana also writes for Counterpunch: and Global Research:

Her books include Fools’ Crusade: Yugoslavia, NATO, and Western Delusions and Queen of Chaos: the Misadventures of Hillary Clinton. She is also involved in the publication of her father’s book, From MAD to Madness: Inside Pentagon Nuclear War Planning, by Paul H. Johnstone. She can be reached at di*************@wa*****.fr.


The eleven ballots that host Jeff J. Brown picked up, when voting in the first round of France’s presidential race, April 23, at the French Consulate in Guangzhou, China. He and his wife voted for Jean-Luc Mélenchon. They will vote for Le Pen in round two, on May 7. ABM: anybody but Macron – he’s a Yankee neocon Trojan horse! (Image by Jeff J. Brown)
