The famed Yellow Vest protests rocked France for the sixth straight weekend and spread to other nations in the region, marking another victory for ordinary people fighting back against the unaccountable governing class in Europe.
In France, confrontations between protestors and police escalated, turning more violent than they have been in previous weekends. Police threatened unarmed protestors with firearms during Saturday’s clash.
“At one point a group of Yellow Vests reported to be in the famous Champs Elysees were filmed throwing road cones at police as they drove away from the scene, while police deployed tear gas as clashes broke out,” said ZeroHedge. “A French policeman drew his weapon and was forced to abandon his motorcycle as protesters threw objects.”
Ezra Levent of The Rebel posted footage of the incident.
“Macron’s cops pull out a handgun in the face of yellow vests,” he said.

Meanwhile, French newspaper Le Monde reported that French President Emmanuel Macron is becoming increasingly isolated, and cannot go out in public without being harassed:
Insults, boos, threats … When he goes out, now, it goes wrong. Since the beginning of the mobilization of “yellow vests”, for the president who loved so much walks, they have become rare (and discreet). Like the visits.
From Loudes airport, in Haute-Loire, to Puy-en-Velay, there is 10 km, a quarter of an hour by car. This December 4, to reach the prefecture burned three days earlier by the “yellow vests”, Emmanuel Macron fortunately does not need to go through the roundabout of Lachamp, in the town of Saint-Pierre-Eynac. It is there, on the RN88, that demonstrators had sewn a puppet of human size, placed on a scaffold more real than nature. On the block was written: “To guillotine is our project. “
“today in Bonnyville [Alberta, Canada] , yellow vests waiting for the trucks to come,” said Sheila Gunn Reid on Twitter.

The mainstream press once again downplayed the protests amid reports of censorship of the events by French media.

Poland’s Nationalist President Declares Election Victory Over Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger
A victory for European conservatives and nationalists.
Polish President Andrzej Duda declared victory at a campaign rally following the initial exit polls in the nation’s presidential election on Sunday, as exit poll results showed him narrowly leading against Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski.
Initial exit polls showed Duda, of the national conservative Law and Justice Party, leading by a slim margin of 50.4% to Trzaskowski’s 49.6%. Final results are expected Monday, but Duda’s campaign is apparently confident enough in their victory to declare triumph in the election.
The Polish election had included a national debate on cultural issues, with Duda accusing Trzaskowski of supporting the introduction of western-style homosexual political movements into Poland. Duda, a continental skeptic of the European Union broadly comparable to Hungary’s Viktor Orban, had described LGBTIA+ ideology as “more destructive” than the Soviet-style Communism many Poles had experienced in the 20th century.
Trzaskowski was also scrutinized for his extensive links to western political elites, having received a scholarship from globalist oligarch George Soros and attending the California Bilderberg Conference.
If Duda’s claim of election night victory holds, his reelection as Polish president will serve as an embarrassment to the bureaucrats of the European Union, potentially forcing them to come to the table and negotiate concessions with Central European leaders such as Duda and Orban who insist upon their national sovereignty.
Duda is thought of as a European ally of President Donald Trump, having been the first global leaders to visit the White House after the coronavirus pandemic. Poland is also one of the few NATO countries to meet their treaty spending commitment, spending more than 2% of its GDP on its armed forces.
“Thank you to all my fellow Poles who voted for me and cast their votes. I want to thank you with all my heart because this turnout shows how much you care about our country,” said Duda at the election rally.
