France won’t be US ‘vassal’ – Macron

ER Editor: The script on Europe has definitely changed, and Macron – following up from his recent Beijing visit – has doubled down on stating this. Puppet Macron seems to have switched camps to the European sovereignty, ‘we’re not getting involved in these other problems’ type of approach. Plus de-dollarization. Which is refreshing for ‘Europeans’ (who are they, LOL?). He’s recently been on a visit to Mark Rutte and the Netherlands, which is pretty much a deep state hang out.

Did Marco (RINO) Rubio just out himself? A couple of tweets from white-hat related Clandestine:

** Notice how Ukraine and Taiwan get put together …

We highly recommend checking out the rest of this Twitter thread (8 tweets in total).


And where’s Germany and Olaf Scholz at the moment, while Macron plays this prominent role? According to this Politico piece from April 3, 2023, he is under investigation in a tax scandal going back several years. See —

Of note:

BERLIN — Germany’s center-right opposition wants to raise the heat on Chancellor Olaf Scholz by launching a parliamentary investigation into his alleged connection to a massive tax evasion scandal.

The case — which dates back over five years to the time when Scholz was still mayor of the Hamburg city-state — is linked to the broader so-called “Cum Ex” affair, under which the German state was defrauded by over €30 billion as some banks, companies, or individuals claimed tax reimbursements from authorities for alleged costs that never occurred.

The scandal already hung over the Social Democratic politician’s election campaign in 2021 but had little impact in the end as Scholz’s potential involvement remained unclear. Now it is heating up again after new details emerged that put his previous defense in question. …


France won’t be US ‘vassal’ – Macron

The French president has doubled down on his Taiwan rhetoric after American criticism


Paris is an ally and not a “vassal” of Washington, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday, defending his comments about “strategic autonomy” of the EU regarding the rising tensions between the US and China.

“Being an ally does not mean being a vassal… doesn’t mean that we don’t have the right to think for ourselves,” Macron said in Amsterdam at a joint press conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

France won’t be US ‘vassal’ – Macron

Asked for the French position on Taiwan, Macron said Paris supports the status quo, meaning the “One China policy and the search for a peaceful resolution to the situation.”

Returning from his trip to China on Sunday, Macron argued that the EU can’t just be “America’s followers,” and that it is not in the bloc’s interest to stoke tensions over Taiwan. “The worst thing would be to think that we Europeans must become followers on this topic and take our cue from the US agenda and a Chinese overreaction,” he told reporters.

The remarks earned a swift rebuke from US Senator Marco Rubio (ER: see the tweets above), a Florida Republican on the foreign affairs committee, who suggested Washington might leave the EU to handle the Ukraine conflict by itself.

Taiwanese Parliament Speaker You Si-kun on Tuesday argued that France had forsaken its motto of ‘liberty, equality, fraternity’, and that advanced democracies should not “ignore the lives and deaths of people in other countries,” adding that Macron’s comments left him “puzzled.”

Meanwhile, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said that Macron was “perfectly right to demand European independence and sovereignty,” while the president of the European Council, Charles Michel, noted that “quite a few” leaders of EU countries think like Macron, even though they “wouldn’t say things the same way.” (ER: say what?)

When asked about the French president’s comments on Monday, the US State Department said France is a long-standing ally and that occasional disagreements do not detract from the “deep partnership” with Paris. As for the EU position, a State Department spokesman cited a recent speech by the bloc’s president, Ursula von der Leyen, which described China as “a national and economic security threat,” and said there is “immense convergence” between Washington and Brussels on the matter. (ER: Ursula von der Who? Apparently, China sent her packing to get Macron on his own in Beijing.)
