Will Emmanuel Macon’s globalism be the catalyst that ignites the election of Marine Le Pen, just as the far leftism of the Barack Hussein Obama regime resulted in the election of Donald Trump?
FreeWestMedia Macron’s La Republique En Marche (LREM) is polling at only 19 percent, while Le Pen’s National Rally — formerly known as the National Front — is at 21 percent, Reuters reported.
Conservative parties, including those supporting a French exit from the EU, secured a combined 30 percent of support, up from 25 percent in a similar poll in August.
Not only is Macron’s ratings plummeting, but the globalist leader who was once portrayed as the rising star of French politics has lost his way after he managed to win with a landslide 66 percent against Le Pen’t 33 percent in the second round of the 2017 presidential election.

Le Pen has denounced Macron’s immigration policies as “crazy”. She recently noted: “There is no money for the French, but there is money for migration.”
In late October an IFOP poll also revealed disappointing results of only 29 percent approval for France’s leader after a series of ministerial resignations, a violent and unvetted Moroccan bodyguard’s antics and his very lavish lifestyle.
Also, Macron’s proposed censorship legislation – an attempt to counterattack against the success of blogs and social networks – has met with a backlash. Both Le Pen and leftist opposition leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon, slammed the proposed bill.
Parliamentary leader of the Republicans, Christian Jacob, pointed out earlier that “Emmanuel Macron has crashed into a brick wall of reality. His hold on national politics is waning, as is his influence. He’s losing control of his government”.
Telegraph Liberals championed by Mr Macron are attempting to fend off a rising anti-immigrant and Eurosceptic wave led by Hungary’s prime minister, Viktor Orban, and Matteo Salvini, Italy’s influential deputy prime minister.
Together with the seven per cent of people planning to vote for a smaller far-Right party, Stand Up France, and two per cent going for two small “Frexit” parties, the French Right wing has won 30 per cent of voting intentions, a five-point gain since August, according to the poll.
In a landmark victory, the Front National won the largest share of the French vote in the last European elections in 2014, when the Socialist Party held power in France. The 2019 election is expected to be a contest between far left progressive and anti-Muslim migration nationalists.
On a recent visit to Slovakia and the Czech Republic, Mr Macron railed against populists (the new favorite description of people opposed to mass Muslim migration), accusing Hungarian and Polish leaders of being “fantasists [who] lie to their people.”
He said it angered him to see posters with slogans such as “Stop Brussels”, arguing that EU membership had brought countries such as Hungary and Poland greater prosperity. Last week he urged Europeans to “resist” what he called “the nationalist leprosy”.
“In a Europe divided by fear, the nationalist withdrawal, the consequences of the economic crisis, one sees almost methodically the recurrence of everything that set the pace of European life from the end of the First World War to the Great Depression of 1929.”
Nevertheless, the French president’s approval ratings have plunged to 21 per cent amid rising discontent over his failure to fulfil his election pledges to slash unemployment, boost growth and cut taxes.
Fuel price increases stemming from tax increases justified as an anti-pollution measure have alienated rural and small-town voters, and the president has also been damaged by a scandal over his bodyguard who was filmed beating protesters.
Ms Le Pen’s party appears to be the only opposition group benefiting from Mr Macron’s unpopularity.
A 615-page report was recently released, written by an adviser to President Emmanuel Macron, Hakim El Karoui (a Muslim), who is in charge of designing the new institutions of an “Islam of France.” The report defines Islamism as an “ideology totally distinct from Islam” and also never addresses the links between Islamism and terrorism. The report also insists on the urgent need to spread “true Islam” in France and adopt the teaching of Arabic in public high schools.
The court’s request, for Marine Le Pen to undergo a psychiatric evaluation to determine if she is sane, indicates that French authorities might be reviving the old Soviet use of “psychiatry” to silence dissidents or political opponents.
The legal offensive against Marine Le Pen was actually added to the financial offensive. Even if Le Pen is not sent to prison, the law seems to have been used to open the possibility of declaring her ineligible for the European Parliament elections scheduled for May 2019.
