My recent trip to France produced further shocking testimony to the cratering popularity of Socialist French president Francois Hollande. Now Hollande is going to take to the French airways with some half-witted scheme to explain to French citizens that his government of high taxes, income redistribution and coddling of the radical Muslim horde is not killing the country.
Forget it! The guy’s goose, like Barack Obama’s here in America, is cooked. Over the last five years, Debbie and I have watched the emergence of Marine Le Pen and her far right Front National. We were at a FN demonstration in Paris that, if you had seen it, would have taken your breath away. These are not kidding around folk. The theme for FN is simply France for the French. The strongly nationalistic FN wants out of the EU, a return to the French franc, and deportation of Muslims who refuse to integrate into the French culture. FN is not going to stand for the Muslim riots that have plagued Paris of late. And the brakes will be slammed on immigration from North Africa and the troubling countries of the Eastern Block, especially Romania.
As this article explains, 97% of French believe Hollande has failed the French. Hollande’s approval rating is 13%. Obama is heading on exactly the same Marxist-tinged course and does not appear to comprehend the depth of his problem. Obama is done in America. Unfortunately for Americans, the leadership of the Republican Party is little better and in many ways more dangerous. Just as former French president Nicolas Sarkozy is on the wrong track and not getting the “time for real change message,” John McCain and John Boehner are out in left field and deaf to the voice of the American voters.
Americans have awoken to the folly of nation building and foreign intervention. These forays into the radical Muslim world, controlled by criminal monarchies, have not made America safer and have zero to do with protecting American citizens. Quite to the contrary. These wars have been about oil and gas and, more specifically, pipelines.
How much do most Americans know about foreign influence in America’s government? How much do Americans know about the incestuous meddling of the Muslim Brotherhood and radical Muslim countries multi-million dollar donations to “independent” think tanks like the Brookings Institute?
Robert Spencer has led seminars on Islam and jihad for the FBI, United States Central Command, United States Army Command, and General Staff College, the Army’s Asymmetric Warfare group, the Joint Terrorism Task Force, and the U.S. Intelligence community. Mr. Spencer has a detailed message of truth and deep concern for all Americans. It is spelled out in detail in Arab Spring Winter Comes to America. (By the way, who is responsible for glossing over the radical Muslim issue with the “Arab Spring” catchphrase?)
Americans need to pay close attention to chapter six, “Not Just in Egypt Anymore—The Muslim Brotherhood in The United States.” Regarding the Brotherhood, Mr. Spencer writes, “Their stated goal: eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.”
Debbie and I have learned from repeated trips to France that the French have gotten the message. And it looks like the Swiss, British, Dutch and Germans are also on the same track. Geert Wilders, leader of the Party for Freedom in the Netherlands, writes, “The Arab Winter will be on America, unless America starts listening.”
