France deploying 89,000 cops, security ahead suspected COUP attempt Saturday

Revolution: A French newspaper is reporting that the so-called “yellow jacket” demonstrators who have staged violent protests in Paris and around the country in opposition to the government’s imposition of massive fuel taxes related to climate accords could be preparing for a coup attempt on Saturday

As such, French authorities plan to deploy 8,000 police in Paris alone with another 80,000-plus riot police and gendarmes around the country, various reports have said.

French intelligence services have reported to the Elysee Palace, the official residence of President Emannuel Macron, following “calls to kill” and “carry arms to attack” government officials, parliamentarians and police, according to Le Figaro. 

“They are putschists. We are in a coup attempt,” said Le Figaro‘s sources. 

On Thursday, Yellow Jacket leader Eric Drouet noted that “Saturday will be the final outcome. Saturday is the Elysee,” adding, “We all would like to go to the Elysee.” 

Le Figaro also reported that Saturday’s demonstrations may involve unprecedented levels of violence including “a hardcore radicalized” element,  from “both the extreme right and extreme left.” 

In addition to the closure of the Eiffel Tower on Saturday, several French museums also announced that they would close.

Macron has struggled to contain the protests and the outrage after announcing the hike in fuel taxes three weeks ago, even agreeing to delay them this week. 

The taxes are part of France’s ‘contribution’ to the Paris Climate Accords signed in 2015 which would see $100 billion in wealth from participating (mostly Western) nations transferred to the third world, ostensibly to assist them in ‘greening’ their countries. 

For the record, this is the accord POTUS Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from in June 2017. 

Despite Macron’s pledge to delay the tax hikes, Yellow Jacket demonstrators don’t seem to be placated. The Yellow Vest movement has called on its followers to “stay on our course” over Facebook and gather for “The Act IV”  on Saturday the 8th, in what will be the fourth week of protests. 

Macron’s offer of a six-month delay and to place the tax only on ‘the wealthy’ isn’t playing well among a French electorate who have come to believe that the governing elites have completely lost touch with the people.

    Finally, the French have had enough. They might not be any good against the Bosch, but they’re damn good at revolting. Keep the popcorn warm; this could get interesting.
    .

  2. When they’re done over their they can come over here and help us with ours again like they did during the revolution.

    I’m taking pointers on this and hope y’all are too. We need us a good old fashion revolution.

  6. Wouldn’t it be great if they took the guillotine out of storage and got rid of their communist leaders?

    France deploying 89,000 cops is like when the 1962 Mets scored 19 runs in a game and the question “Did they win?” was asked.

  8. The government only deploys a lot of firepower when their communist leaders are believed to be in danger. What do they do when their newest residents riot and attack people? Not much, is the answer.

  9. Pay attention dems. This is how it usually ends up!

  10. We told you that you were all fools for voting for Macron, but did you listen ? Hell no. Welcome to the BAIT AND SWITCH, France. You deserve this for your stupidity. Now let’s see you get out of it !

  11. Nothing original about this. This is the playbook of the Left everywhere when they’re government: Whenever the people had enough of them and threaten to oust the regime out of power with a popular uprising they invent some coup-de-etat and use the contrivance as justification to impose Draconian repressive measures. This is exactly what was done in Turkey by Erdogan, in Germany by Merkel, and now in France by Macron.
    People must understand that this is a war of attrition. The goal of the regime is to wear them out and make them go home frustrated thinking that nothing can be done. They need to stay in the streets and know that the regime cannot maintain this state of the affairs indefinitely, so eventually it will start cracking from within.

    • There is a huge difference between between the ability of French, German and Turkey people to affect or change their central govt verses the US. That gorilla in the room…no, more like a T-Rex in the US room is the armed to the teeth US patriot. Imagine even a small percentage of US pats willing to answer a call to arms…say like 25 or 30 million for instance. Even the US military would have trouble quelling that. THAT,that right there is what the leftist in the US absolutely hate and despise…..they know that the armed populace has the ability physically defeat and kill leftist socialist/communists when the time comes.

  12. why was france dumb enough to vote for the maricon?

    Yeah, it’s tough to be staring at a revolution you’ve so desperately needed for at least 35 years.

  14. At least Macron doesn’t have to worry about a coup coming from INSIDE the DGSI, their federal police force. In the USA the primary threat against the president has come from the Democrat-run FBI.

  15. The election was fraudulently taken from Le Penn. Just like here in Canada with the defeat of Harper! Nationalists need to stay vigilant especially during an election or the socialists will cheat!

  16. Coup Attempt HELL Somebody built a Guillotine I hope they have the guts to use it on him. I will bet Macron is S******G bricks about now wishing they had an EU army to bail his sorry ass out.
