The Paris Agreement isn’t working out so well for Paris. 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.

Apparently this article is about a different tweet but provides more info to the current situation
Updated Dec 4, 2018, 5:24pm EST
Trump’s retweet about the protests in France is wildly inaccurate
The protests are not “a middle class rebellion against cultural Marxism.” Not even close.
...........
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump evidently decided it was time for him to weigh in on the protests — by sharing a tweet from Charlie Kirk, a 25-year-old conservative political activist and ardent Trump supporter, with his millions of followers.

There’s one problem, though: Nothing in the tweet is even remotely accurate. The only facts in it are that there are protests in France over fuel taxes and that there are, indeed, streets in the city of Paris.
Charlie Kirk ✔
@charliekirk11
There are riots in socialist France because of radical leftist fuel taxes

Media barely mentioning this

America is booming, Europe is burning

They want to cover up the middle class rebellion against cultural Marxism

“We want Trump” being chanted through the streets of Paris
► Show Spoiler
Cutting social welfare benefits and labor protections are not “radical leftist” policies............
Kirk — who is not shy about his deep contempt for socialism — writes, “There are riots in socialist France because of radical leftist fuel taxes.” Now, the protests are partly about fuel taxes — just not “radical leftist” ones.

French President Emmanuel Macron announced a new gas tax earlier this year that will increase the price of fuel by about 30 cents per gallon and will continue to rise over the next few years. (Gas already costs about $7.06 per gallon in France.)

But Macron, a former investment banker, isn’t using the tax to support or expand social welfare benefits — quite the opposite, in fact. It’s part of his broader plan to reform the French economy to make it more pro-business.

He’s been cutting spending to popular, longstanding social welfare programs and has been scaling back labor protections. For instance, he’s made it easier for companies to hire and fire employees and fought unions to end subsidies for certain sectors.
..................
So, to recap, the protesters are mostly working-class folks who are angry at what they see as an out-of-touch elitist president whose policies favor the wealthy and corporations at the expense of working-class French people.
<BIG SNIP>
To be fair, there is a video that seems to show people chanting, “We want Trump.” It’s just not entirely clear whether they were being serious — or just cheering for the guy wearing a rubber Trump mask and dancing for the crowd.

Oh, and it seems the video was taken in the UK — not France.

Very sad day & night in Paris. Maybe it’s time to end the ridiculous and extremely expensive Paris Agreement and return money back to the people in the form of lower taxes? The U.S. was way ahead of the curve on that and the only major country where emissions went down last year!

Watched Da Nang Dick Blumenthal on television spewing facts almost as accurate as his bravery in Vietnam (which he never saw). As the bullets whizzed by Da Nang Dicks head, as he was saving soldiers....

....left and right, he then woke up from his dream screaming that HE LIED. Next time I go to Vietnam I will ask “the Dick” to travel with me!

Trump blasts Blumenthal after senator calls him an 'unindicted co-conspirator'

President Trump took aim at Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) on Saturday after the Intelligence Committee member told MSNBC that a sentencing memo filed by federal prosecutors on Friday implicated the president in directing illegal payments to women who claimed they had affairs with him.

In a pair of tweets, Trump mocked Blumenthal for past statements the senator has made referring to his military service, which the president has frequently accused the senator of inflating.
<snip the tweets>

There's no evidence that the Connecticut senator has ever claimed to have served in combat in Vietnam, though the senator has been criticized for comments he made describing his service in the Marine Corps Reserves, which occurred during the Vietnam war era but was based in the U.S.

The president's attacks came hours after Blumenthal spoke to MSNBC's Chris Matthews, telling the host that [Michael] Cohen's payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal during the campaign at the direction of Trump amounted to illegal campaign contributions.
<SNIP>
https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/420 ... onspirator

snips from SNOPES
Did Senator Richard Blumenthal Misrepresent His Military Service?
MOSTLY TRUE
What's True
Blumenthal made a handful of false and misleading statements about having served in Vietnam during the period of American involvement in the war there.

What's False
Blumenthal insisted that those misrepresentations were "totally unintentional," as he has also more accurately and modestly represented his military service at other times.

The idea of a European Military didn’t work out too well in W.W. I or 2. But the U.S. was there for you, and always will be. All we ask is that you pay your fair share of NATO. Germany is paying 1% while the U.S. pays 4.3% of a much larger GDP - to protect Europe. Fairness!

I am astonished, only a single reply in the Twitter thread mentions that this picture is from last year, and nobody else take it up. I bet all those trumpians relying "the bestest man" believe he was really at the memorial today.

James Comey:

“I don’t recall”—8 times
“I don’t remember”—71 times
“I don’t know”—166 times

AND he said he didn’t know that
Christopher Steele was passing information to Bruce Ohr, who was giving it to the FBI.

some replies:
Donald Trump Jr.’s testimony:
“I don’t remember” —37 times
“I can’t recall” — 105 times
“I don’t know” — 44 times

Wow he must have been channeling Justice Kavannaugh

Do you recall or remember Jeff Sessions and the number of times he invoked those words?

You cherry picking, irritating puppet man. If you read the transcript it's very clear why he says "I don't know" etc. He is asked to posit on items that he hadn't read, items he had no part of, and items after he was fired. You should look up the word "context".

Trump lashes out at Comey over House testimony: 'All lies!'

President Trump lashed out at James Comey early Sunday, accusing the former FBI director of lying during his testimony to House lawmakers about the investigation into Russia's election interference.
<snip tweets>
Comey testified last week before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees behind closed doors. The panels later released a transcript of the roughly six-hour meeting.

The transcript revealed that Comey told lawmakers that the counterintelligence investigation into possible conspiracy between Russia and the Trump campaign began by examining four Americans, whom he did not identify, citing the potential that they are part of an ongoing investigation.

He did note that Trump was not one of the four individuals.

Comey also defended the work of former FBI agent Peter Strzok, another Department of Justice official who has drawn the ire of Trump. <SNIP>

Off Topic
FWIW I was searching the pdf file for "remember".

There was more back and forth with Gowdy and Comey. This part starting on page 118 was kinda funny to me cuz Gowdy appeard to have trouble remembering something that JUST HAPPENED



Mr. Gowdy. I'm not asking you for names, but I'm asking
you for a sense of scope. How many sources and subsources did
Steele rely upon?

Ms. Bessee. Mr. Chairman, again, the number or the how
many sources or subsources would go to things involved in the
special counsel investigation. So the witness will not be able
to answer that.

Mr. Gowdy. For the life of me, I don't understand how that
could possibly be so. What I do know to be so is I need -- and
think I have a right -- to ask the former Director of the FBI,
given the fact that we've already established Steele had sources
and subsources, whether or not the Bureau made an effort to
contact and corroborate or contradict the information provided
by those sources. Is it the Bureau's position that I'm
incorrect?

Ms. Bessee. Could we have a minute to talk to the witness?
<begin pag 119>

Mr. Gowdy. Well, if it's -- yeah, if we can toll the clock.
I mean, I'm already running out of time.

Mr. Comey. Can I have your question again, Mr. Gowdy?

Mr. Gowdy. Pardon me?

Mr. Comey. What's the question again?

Mr. Gowdy. God, if I remember. I think it was whether or
not the Bureau made any effort -- oh, I think what I asked is
whether or not you had an idea the scope, the breadth, of the
number of sources or subsources Steele relied upon.
