Disinfo: All strategic choices of France are dictated by Brussels, Macron has no power

Summary

Macron has no power. It is not him who decides. Macron is only a governor of the province of France, of a kind of entity under the domination of an industrial financial oligarchy that took power in Brussels. He’s only pretending to have power which he has not.

There is a big secret in French politics: all big strategic choices (privatisation of SNCF, EDF, the attacks on pensions, labour law…) are codified by the report on strategy for economic policies published yearly in Brussels in order to favour the convergence of economies, to save the euro.

Disproof

No evidence given.

French presidents are exceptionally powerful compared to leaders of other advanced democracies.

The Broad Economic Policy Guidelines (also known as GOPÉ), established by Article 121 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), are 'recommendations for economic policy guidelines' (fiscal policy, structural reforms, wage negotiations, sustainable development policies, etc.) addressed each year to the Member States.  As recommendations, they do not have the force of law.

EDF (Electricity of France) is partly privatised since 2004, but is still controlled by the French State.  A further strategy of profitability of the EDF is being discussed regardless Broad Economic Policy Guidelines. The privatisation of railway company SNCF has not happened.

Crimeans have benefited from reconnection with Russia

Two new days have appeared in the history books – March 16 and 18, 2014. After the referendum on March 16, Sevastopol and the Crimean Republic were integrated in the Russian Federation two days later.

In Sevastopol people now re-learn the history from the point of view of Moscow. Crimea was Russian for a long time, before the Soviet empire changed the borders. At the beginning of the 90s, Kyiv started to force the entirely Russian-speaking population of the peninsula to learn Ukrainian and Ukrainian history.

“Everything is fine, everything is perfect, we have enough money,” said a Crimean. Abandoned by Kyiv, the peninsula gains modernity. Pensions have been raised. The prices are higher than before, but so is the standard of living.

Disproof

Recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative on the illegal annexation of Crimea. No international body recognises the so-called referendum, announced 27th of February, 2014, and held less than three weeks later.  On March 27th, 2014, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution in which it stated that the referendum in Crimea was not valid and could not serve as a basis for any change in the status of the peninsula. Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, recognised April 17th 2015 that "our soldiers were deployed in Crimea to help the inhabitants express their opinion" (Interfax).

As for historical past of Crimea, see the explanation by the Ukrainian embassy in France.

Kosovo and Crimea’s status recognition by the West show double standards

The referendum in Crimea has been questioned by various countries, but everyone knows in a fairly transparent way that the majority of Crimeans were in favour of joining Russia. The sanctions of the EU and the United States date from the attachment of Crimea to Russia. In fact, there are NATO countries that have themselves violated international law with respect to Kosovo, which has been recognized by a number of European countries to the detriment of the territorial integrity of the borders and the Constitution of Serbia. Europeans must admit that Crimea belongs to Russia and not to say that some annexations are good and others are bad.

Disproof

Pro-Kremlin disinformation frequently draws parallels to Kosovo's secession from Serbia, but Crimea's annexation by Russia has nothing to do with it.

In Kosovo, there was a civil war, with thousands of casualties and hundreds of thousands of refugees, and which Western countries stopped. This was followed by a decade of international administration and status negotiations. In 2008 the EU Council stressed that in view of the conflict of the 1990s and the extended period of international administration under Security Council Resolution 1244, Kosovo constituted a sui generis case. By contrast, there was no war in Ukraine until Russian military aggression http://bit.ly/2ftv6iT.

Pope Francis is a servant of George Soros and the global Zionist conspiracy

The Catholic Church, along with the European Union, the big capitalist and its puppets in the parasitic political class are the promoters of the demographic change taking place in the West. The Vatican only serves the interests of George Soros, and Pope Francis is a communist wolf disguised as a sheep that is serving his Zionist masters, as proven by the fact that the Vatican didn’t object to the exhumation of late Spanish strongman Francisco Franco.

Disproof

This article mixes several classical conspiratorial narratives in one, affirming that immigration is being promoted by some actors as a means to alter the cultural essence of the West, and blaming Jewish capitalists for this. Once again George Soros is the biggest villain of all, and on this occasion Pope Francis and the Vatican are also included as part of this big plot.

No evidence is provided for any of these affirmations. You can see here more examples of the narrative of George Soros allegedly promoting massive immigration to Europe, and about a global Zionist conspiracy.
