French revolt against... Blackrock? Why you're not hearing much about France protests
The real power structure is much more corporate in nature, and the political frontmen are merely pawns meant to draw our ire.

“You have to force behaviors and at Blackrock we are forcing behaviors.” - Larry Fink, CEO of Blackrock
Hey, did you know that the French have been protesting against dictatorial overreach by their President at the behest of big business to increase the retirement age? And that authorities have even resorted to confiscating cookware used to make noise to try and quell the unrest? If you haven’t heard much about it, you’re not alone.
I also covered a similar quiet in the mainscheme media last summer when the Dutch farmers started to protest against draconian environmental measures that threaten their livelihood. If you want to check that out, click here.
When there is big news going on in the United States, it’s very hard for anything else to reach our eyes and ears from across the globe unless the media feels the need to make sure they keep up the manufacturing of consent that they’ve been doing with the Ukraine conflict and the boatloads of resources the American taxpayers are being forced to foot the bill for getting delivered to their doorstep so Zelenskyy can buy opulent housing for his parents and maintain his own ludicrous affluence complete with what appears to be a very prevalent cocaine habit.
I’ve been around people on the stuff, I know how they act and what they do. No one sniffs that much, otherwise.
But I digress.
Here these days we’re inundated with news about long-time mainstream news mainstays like Tucker Carlson and Don Lemon losing their jobs. One is more important than the other, for obvious reasons. And no, the reason isn’t their race. One was a mouthpiece for his crooked political party and the other had the balls to buck the trend and call out people who he otherwise aligns with politically for their questionable transgressions for the sake of their own prosperity.
Other silly news bits to which we’re forced to be privy include announcements by various people from Biden to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. announcing their Presidential runs, as well as the ongoing woes of Anheuser-Busch because they hired a fake trans person to promote their pisswater beer.
So it should come as no surprise that we’re not all that privy to the goings-on in France, where protests have been raging since at least the beginning of the year, if not longer. The reason most often reported is because France’s President, Emmanuel Macron, saw fit to increase the retirement age from 62 to 64 years of age.
In the truest representation of the relationship between corporate influence and political power, Macron ignored the plight of the French people and signed the bill into law codifying the retirement age at 64 on April 15th.
And not only did Macron ignore the people in the streets demanding satisfaction, but he didn’t even let their representatives in the French Parliament have a final vote on the bill before he slapped it down onto his desk and signed it into law.
Even though their efforts have not yet punished Macron’s tyrannical overreach, I have to hand it to the French all the same. They do two things well — food, and uprisings. Their real masterpiece is not so much protesting their politicians, it’s them going right to the source and protesting none other than one of the biggest ‘too-big-to-fail’ companies in the world — Blackrock.
Why? Because Blackrock is responsible for managing and privatizing the pensions of France’s workers. And it isn’t so hard to believe that Blackrock told their puppets in power — especially Macron himself — that it was necessary to increase the retirement age. Of course, being the savvy snakes they are, Blackrock would advise such a thing under the auspices of ensuring that the French pension system remains solvent, while offering private retirement solutions that Blackrock will directly profit from managing.
According to one protester identified by Reuters only as a schoolteacher, “the government wants to throw away pensions, it wants to force people to fund their own retirement with private pension funds, but what we know is that only the rich will be able to benefit from such a setup.”
So why would I care what is going on in France? Because it also needs to be happening here in the United States. We need to stop protesting our elected leaders because that gets us nowhere. And don’t tell me we need to vote them out. You’re not going to dismantle the master’s house with the master’s tools.
We instead need to go right to the offices of people like Larry Fink and remind them that they are few, and we are many. And that their subversive machinations that exploit the common worker in the name of profit and personal prosperity will no longer be allowed. Peacefully, of course.
When we start putting pressure on the puppet masters themselves, we can cut the strings they use to control those puppet politicians that regularly sacrifice our rights for the greater good of the bottom line of companies like Blackrock, while lying to our faces about it being a ‘necessary sacrifice’ while they themselves sacrifice nothing and regularly pillage their constituents for more of their hard-earned money only to either send it to a foreign government like Israel or Ukraine, or to line their own pockets with it.

I can’t really take anyone who gets to vote for their own pay raises seriously. Least of all when they’re also openly engaging in insider trading right in front of our faces to enrich themselves even more with the information they become privy to as legislators well before any of us.
Remember when the Covid pandemic was just really getting spooled up here in the U.S. and we learned that a bunch of members of Congress, who learned about the plan of action before any of us and knew their investments would be affected, dumped millions in stock holdings based on their advanced information? And as we all remember, Covid sent the stock market through one of its most volatile periods in history. And the wealthy crooks in the Washington establishment prospered as a result.
And while we can’t forget Nancy Pelosi and her husband, Paul ‘Hammer Time’ Pelosi, who are the faces of flagrant Congressional insider trading, I also want to bring a Freshman legislator’s suspicious trading activities to your attention.
Did you know that NY Rep. Daniel Sachs Goldman, since taking office in January of this year, has executed over 500 trades worth tens of millions of dollars?
And yes, that’s really his name. I’m not making it up.
This is just a small sample of why we need to follow the example of the French and start pulling at the roots, not the superficial foliage of a problem like corporate influence over politics in order to excise these weeds from society. To start undoing the tentacle-like stranglehold that companies like Blackrock have over our daily lives through their paid shills in the Washington establishment here at home.
Only when the playing field is even can we have a chance to create an honest government again.
