French Riots Prove Paris Agreement Would Have Punished U.S. Workers

Elitist French President Emmanuel Macron publicly chastized President Donald J. Trump when he pulled out of the Paris climate accord. It was all cost and no benefit to working-class Americans and the riots spreading across France right now prove Trump was right to reject it.

After eight years of Obama’s job-killing economic policies, the coup de gras would have been signing on to the multinational climate change agreement that would force onerous regulations on U.S. companies and raise taxes across the board. Rather than the dramatic recovery and surging GDP, it could have been the death blow that pole vaulted China ahead of the U.S. as the number one superpower. Emerging economies would have enjoyed free rein to build the coal-fired power plants that Obama famously threatened to bankrupt.

“So, if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can,” Obama reportedly said. “It’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.”

Hillary reiterated the sentiment in the run-up to the 2016 election saying, “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”

It seems inconceivable that a sitting president or candidate would target the jobs of hard-working Americans. However, Obama was true to his word.

His policies decimated whole communities, putting upwards of 83,000 coal miners out of work. He also sat back and did nothing as OPEC and Russia flooded the oil market to drive down prices in an effort to bankrupt U.S. oil. All for a weak disputed science that claims human activity might be a primary driver in climate change. Pres. Trump had an entirely different perspective.

“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” the president said about pulling out of the Paris accord. “It would once have been unthinkable that an international agreement could prevent the United States from conducting its own domestic affairs.”

But the European elites who put their liberal, globalist ideologies ahead of the citizens they swore to serve have caused tremendous harm on their home fronts. French President Macron implemented policies from the Paris Climate accord which leveled taxes against working class French citizens. As a result, French citizens have taken to the streets and set Paris and other cities ablaze in an all-out revolt against Macron and his globalist policies.

Working-class people from suburban and rural regions seized control of Paris wearing yellow jackets. They blocked streets, destroyed property, burned cars and slugged it out with a massive police presence of nearly 90,000 strong equipped with armored vehicles. It’s Frenchmen against Frenchmen as tear gas fills the air and many are calling for Macron’s head. The hike on fossil fuels was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

“The Paris Agreement isn’t working out so well for Paris,” Pres. Trump tweeted. “Protests and riots all over France. People do not want to pay large sums of money, much to third world countries (that are questionably run), in order to maybe protect the environment. Chanting ‘We Want Trump!’ Love France.”

These days, President Trump’s approval rating cast a looming shadow over Macron and his outgoing co-conspirator German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The Paris accord was the product of a 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in which Obama agreed to meet grossly unrealistic emissions standards. Reductions were set at 26-28 percent by 2025, long after he would be out of office.

To date, the only country associated with those discussions to reduce emissions has been the U.S. Yet, the most substantial reduction burden would have fallen on America. More accurately, American taxpayers. The French people are fast-learning that elites like Macron want to feel good about polishing their shiny ideas on the backs of working people.

If Hillary had won the 2016 election, she would have gleefully signed the accord. The Paris deal would have crushed the U.S. GDP by upwards of $2.5 trillion by 2035 and driven out upwards of 400,000 jobs. That decline would have been coupled with escalating consumer goods costs and higher taxes. Household income would have declined. The historically low unemployment rate would likely have been replaced with an even greater recession.

Everyday Americans need only look at France and see the anger of working-class people to understand that it was a bad deal. There’s blood in the streets in Paris. President Trump was right.

  1. Like!! I blog frequently and I really thank you for your content. The article has truly peaked my interest.

  2. This is one of the reasons the Mueller investigation is targeting people that got Trump elected into the presidency a big dose of retaliation and prison time, the dems will mount a full court press for impeachment this summer.Its going to be a long hot summer with half the nation trying to gut the other half! Nothing good is going to come of this so hang onto your hats folks!

  3. I am very thankful for President Trump standing for things that most Americans are for. I love seeing drive-by media stumped not knowing what to respond to him because he’s not predictable. The more lies they tell eventually the worse they will to end up looking like prejudice fools!

  4. Trump is literally a complete God shot and God send. Everything he does is the right move for America. The liberal left will definitely kill this country by going all out to win in the big 4 areas

    1. Take Your Guns

    What people don’t conceive is there is an enormous world order faction that wants your guns so they can eventually dictate over you with no retaliation

    2. Socialized healthcare

    The worst thing ever facing this Country and Obama passed the biggest redistribution of wealth in the history of the United States. The horrible republican “ zero sales skills “ never countered that by stating that MILLIONS OF HARDWORKING MIDDLE CALSS FAMILIES lost their healthcare. MILLIONS ! Because they no longer could afford $1000 per month and a $10k to $15k deductible

    But the main reason is the globalists and dictatorial faction can control a population the best by socialized healthcare. Canada population is very unhappy with it.

    3. Christianity

    They literally want to kill Christianity in this country and for very good reason. Christianity has the premise that there is something bigger than self or STATE. That God rules, not the dictatorial state and the Christian values are in direct opposition to State controlling the population. That’s why the State will enhance and protect Islam and Muslim because it has values that are in complete conflict of American Christian values.

    4. Last of all – Open Borders

    Wake up AMERICA. How this ever even became a debate is the most embarrassing item in America. The rogue Government is in partnership with the drug cartels and are being paid billions in off shore accounts – it’s all part of the corrupt deep state. They want the drugs coming through and all of the other horrible things that occur with open borders. There is not one good thing on open borders, except dirty money that the big elite politicians are able to pocket. Trump is 100% correct to bring 50,000 military if needed to protect this country and build a high tech wall that has state of the art sensors and monitoring for ANY TYPE OF BREACH OF THE EARTH, which will eliminate any tunnel whatsoever. By executive order he can call a national emergency, which this is and employ the military to build the wall. The military has experts in every field and can design and build the most state of the art wall like Israel. It must get done and within a year, Mexico will have paid for it and the country will pocket billions by less drug addictions, crime, welfare and fake social security claims etc. People, this subject is worth trillions in the long run, not billions. $50 billion for a wall will save this Country Trilions of dollars. The Deep state wants the money- it’s that simple.

    Last of all, again, Trump is the biggest gift this country has ever received — at the needed time. Hillary would have absolutely killed this country , bankrupted it, yet would have mad billions personally.. thousands of off shore accounts tied to the Clinton foundation. This is a trillions enterprise people.

    It’s that big and that’s why it is so dangerous. Jeff Sessions would have been murdered if he even went there. Trump is the only guy in the world that can take them all down.

    God is with you Trump and God bless our flag, our military, our vets, our sovereignty, lower taxes, affordable healthcare


    1. I very much enjoyed your take on the situation, I agree!!

  5. I just read an excellent article about the Russian Revolution and the results of Stalin & Lenin’s efforts to erase the Christian Faith and spread atheism and chaos. It left countles millions of peasants dead and indeed their was no benefit from the promised “better life and fairer distribution of wealth. I appreciate Matthew Jone’s points. All his points line up with the power grab of Hitler and Russia and all the other failed nations like North Korea. At least “45” is fighting for our economy and jobs for our citizens. It’s so shameful that the Democratic’s right hand mainstream media is intent on demonizing his person to deflect from what he is actually accomplishing for our people. It has been wonderful that President Trump has also made a stand to protect the Christian Faith from all the left progressives efforts to silence the values the Bible has always promoted. (God is bigger than government!) I’m so thankful 45 is protecting our sovereignty and rights as a nation to “not be bombarded” with illegals seeking the benefits our benevolent nation has always handed out at the tax payers expense. Backing out of “Bad Deals” is something most Americans who really study the facts greatly appreciate! I really wish the Democrats would honor the election, stop the smoke and mirrors show and be for our nation of peoples who have come from all over the world. I hope many democrats can see the facts and stop fighting for the last administration’s rose painted agendas and their illegal efforts to control the voters of our nation.

  6. No One will ever take my guns! Ever!
    No One will ever take my away my faith! Ever!
    No One will ever convince me that our
    nation is not the most responsible when it comes to the environment and the so called climate change Ever!

  7. It warms my heart to see so many comments of people who think like me and get what is going on. Thank you Jesus that the shackles and lies of the devil have fallen off the eyes of so many and they see what is really going on. Yes, Trump was God’s answer to many many prayers for our nation. Trump is bringing back some much needed prosperity that had been stripped for many years under Obummer. Let’s all just keep thanking and praising God from President Trump and his fearlessness. His is much like Gideon and many other fearless warriors in the bible. Let’s all keep seeking the Lord where our government rests on his shoulders, and not ours. Destiny waits in the hands of God and not in the hands of statesmen,” a quote from T. S. Eliot.

  8. God Bless our President–Years from now we shall be free and blessed because of actions he is taking today. I just hope nothing happens to him–a lesser person would have broken due to the criminal democrats resisting any progress. The first year, a wall would pay for itself since illegals cost the USA $70,000.00 per each and their anchor babies will cost each and every year of their life. It is estimated that the tab for illegal aliens in the USA costs us 25 billion per year.. The USA does not even have a tabulation of how many illegal aliens reside inside the USA. The dems are even protesting the question on the upcoming census –are you a legal citizen of the USA and there is a big penalty for not submitting and or lying about questions on the form as it is a Fed. Govt form. President Donald Trump is my HERO

  9. God Bless America. President Trump is fighting for the Republic U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the We the People. He gets broadsided daily not only by the Left Progressive Liberal Socialist Democrats but by the RINOS and News Media but Keeps Standing and We the People Stand with him. MAGA/KAG

  10. my god somebody open these peoples eyes to the truth, this wall that 51% of the country don’t want that trump has dreamed in his decided that everyone wants even with the proof showing him he’s wrong he doesn’t care because he believes it will get him reelected but i hope people won’t be that stupid.
    that is like trump says you can’t criminally for election fund fraud well lets see, did obama use campaign funds to pay off a pornstar and a playmate to obstruct an election from find out the truth, and the answer is no, did obama lie to the entire country even when he was faced with the truth and lie more, and the answer is no, did obama order someone to do an illegal act to cover up the crime and the answer in no. so are the situations the same no so they can’t be judged as the same and that is what trump doesn’t understand whether can’t or won’t is the question and to make it worse i hate obama and clinton we won’t go there. but here is the questions you need to be asking is, how after 18 months of lying can we trust him to do what is right for the country, when every lie was to cover his illegal actions so far, 2 he is still facing more illegal actions and using the presidential powers to escape justice in a charity fraud that they used they can charge a sitting president for that crime; now lets hit that fence for the us protection well that fence or razor wire or what ever they choose to count it didn’t do them any good last week when a women climbed the fence and got to the other side and by the way her and her new born that she delivered on the us side both survived so if it couldn’t a women in her ninth month of pregnacy how will it stop anyone else is the question

    1. I feel so sorry for you since it’s obvious that you drank the democrats koolaid. I hope you’re happy living in your delusional world.
      President Trump to you, did not use campaign finances to pay Stormy, but SHE violated the agreement (btw he wasn’t married when he was with her) so what is the big deal? He wasn’t like the congress paying for sexual harassment claims with a slush fund paid for by taxpayers.
      And Obummer did lie to the whole country when he said we could keep our doctors. The affordable care act was anything but affordable. My premiums rose by 200%, as did a lot of others that I know. The only people it is affordable to are the illegal immigrants that get it for free.
      OBummer also paid Iran $billions without congressional approval. He passed DACA with an presidential edict, again bypassing Congress. Obummer also weaponized the FBI, the IRS and the CIA and allowed the to terrorize US citizens. Also look at his wuss action regarding Bengazi.
      Now let’s look at the fence where the illegals got over, most of it was antiquated. So less than 100 got over. However in Texas the Border Patrol is catching about 1600 a weekend where the “fence” isn’t even barbed wired. How would you solve the problem, because I’m certainly tired of paying for them!!

  11. Thank each one of you for your accurate assessment concerning our President, country, and the problems with the Democrats/socialists who are the “evils” in our country. God and His Ten Commandments is what I try to live my life by, and it would be a great idea if these evil people would repent and live their lives according to the Laws of God rather than their own socialistic/communistic laws they want to force upon the American populace. It is all about control for these people. But, there are people who will fight and die for the freedoms we have in America, and I am on the front line. You better wake up America before it’s too late. President Donald Trump is digging us out of an abyss that Obama put America into, so help him achieve his objectives—-I know you will if you are a true American.

  12. The president needs people to help him, i.e. people who love this country & trust God. let us all pray that he will find such people. Mr Trump has been fighting tirelessly for us & with God’s help we will prevail against the deep state

  13. Leonardo lived in their own measured rhythm, try to cared about the standard
    of his paintings completely ignoring the time it requires to achieve the task.
    If this is an issue of yours too, then you certainly should learn concerning
    the best ways to procure such things. Matisse also took over as king with the
    Fauvism and was famous in the art circle.

  14. Thanks for any other informative blog. The place else could I get that kind of info written in such an ideal approach?
    I’ve a project that I’m simply now running on, and I have been at the glance out for such

  15. We are with you Mr. President Trump!!
    M.A.G.A. and u’ll go down in history as the best President, maybe ever!!
    Ur following Wait’s for ur next move !!
    Closed Wal mart prison’s/ for all the bad Democrats….
    Best Christmas present, giving American back to the patriot’s..

  16. In cases like this, you need to invest in a rather simple picture frames.
    Waterslide paper emerged in clear or white however clear
    is a lot more preferred, considering the fact that any type of unprinted locations on the image is still clear.

    The beginning of Leonardo’s life was dedicated to art and painting in particular.
