Macron won the election in France which means the EU leaders breathe a sigh of relief and the whole system hobbles along……Le Pen won’t just go away though and neither will the trends that led to her rise….the next few years should be interesting to say the least…..will fear, instability and a broken system lead to her further rise or will real change herald a breakthrough for the masses? For now the globalists rejoice at a failed uprising and challenge to the status quo….
