In “Apparent Sign Of Support” Obama Has Phone Call With Macron Days Ahead Of Election
In what Reuters has said was “an apparent sign of support just three days before the first round of an uncertain presidential election”, French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron – and the market-friendly candidate preferred by Europe’s establishment – spoke with former U.S. president Barack Obama on the phone on Thursday.
Quick to avoid the perception of yet another foreign interference (who can forget Obama’s strong condemnation of the Brexit campaign last summer), in a statement from Kevin Lewis, spokesperson to President Barack Obama, he said that “an endorsement was not the purpose of the call, as President Obama is not making any formal endorsement in advance of the run-off election on Sunday.” And yet, the optics certainly imply just that.
The full statement below:
“President Obama spoke on the phone to Emmanuel Macron this morning. President Obama appreciated the opportunity to hear from Mr. Macron about his campaign and the important upcoming presidential election in France, a country that President Obama remains deeply committed to as a close ally of the United States, and as a leader on behalf of liberal values in Europe and around the world. An endorsement was not the purpose of the call, as President Obama is not making any formal endorsement in advance of the run-off election on Sunday.”
Macron said Obama wanted to exchange views about the French presidential campaign and that the ex-president had stressed how important the relationship between the two countries was.
While enjoying the running of the Boston Marathon, please remember why we celebrate this holiday. It is to commemorate the first battles of the Revolutionary War in Lexington and Concord in 1775.
Our Founding Fathers put their lives on the line because they wanted to end the tyranny of an all-too-powerful government and to empower people by giving them individual freedom. They did not risk everything to create a nation that offers freebies or to have the government treat us like children.
Looking back, I’m sure everyone believes that they would have been a patriot joining Sam Adams, John Hancock and others in fighting for our freedoms. However, your beliefs about our modern day government might show that you would have actually been with the British.
LM: We are beginning to see, in these United States, special interest groups trying to limit freedom of speech, in essence, freedom of thought.
Cultural Marxists and Communists have already attempted the elimination of freedom of speech, in many countries, in the past, initially striving for some sort of Utopian ideal but later finding out that they have created an authoritarian regime that eliminates their freedom of speech as well. Usually they are the first to fall under the guns of their newly created regime.
Do we really need to go through this again ?
Do some research before you fall under the spell of the cult of mediocrity.
And remember, unlike other countries, the Bill of Rights, includes a 1st Amendment to express ourselves and a 2nd Amendment to back it up.
Why Russia has become the number-one target in the US press

The new devil in the US press, as of last summer, was Russia. All of a sudden. And then, in the wake of the election, the devil became the DEVIL. Was this nothing more than an attempt to discredit Trump and his victory?
No. It was definitely something more.
As David Icke stated on the Richie Allen show a few days ago, Russia was the player who was standing in the way of the long-term goal to get rid of Assad in Syria and turn the country into a hellhole like Libya.
The US government and its allies had created, funded, and armed the group called ISIS, the proxy force for, among other operations, wiping out the Assad government in Syria. The Syria op was a slam-dunk…until it wasn’t. Until Putin stepped in…
