Macron Begins Sending Armed Vehicles to Paris as Trucking Convoy Moves In

Published February 12th, 2022 

Armored personnel carriers were on the streets of Paris Friday to prepare for the French version of the Freedom Convoy.

French police have warned against participation in a Paris protest, saying that protesters could face two years in prison a big fine, and might be banned from driving, according to the Daily Mail.

French Prime Minister Jean Castex said one should not “associate these virulent attacks against vaccination with the word freedom.”

“If they block Paris or if they try to block the capital, we will have to be very firm,” Castex said, according to The New York Times.

French President Emmanuel Macron also spoke against the protest, saying the nation needed “unity” and “a collective goodwill.”

Protesters said the Freedom Convoy that crossed Canada inspired them to emulate it.

“We’ve been going around in circles for three years. We saw the Canadians and said to ourselves: ‘It’s awesome, what they’re doing.’ In eight days, boom, something was sparked,” protester Jean-Marie Azais said, according to The Guardian.

“People need to see us, and to listen to the people who just want to live a normal and free life,” a woman the Daily Mail identified only as Lisa, 62, said. She was part of a 1,000-vehicle convoy leaving Brittany to head for Paris.

Although opposition to vaccine mandates is a core issue in the protests, one commentator noted it was not the only issue.

“The convoy is not coming out of nowhere,” said Jacob Davey from the Institute of Strategic Dialogue, a London-based think tank that studies “extremism,” according to The Washington Post.  “It’s coming out of an established anti-vax, anti-lockdown movement that has been putting down roots in different countries.”

The Belgian capital of Brussels, which is the target for a major protest, and the Austrian capital of Vienna have also banned protesters, although trucks are already reported on the streets of Vienna.

“The Federal Police will control motorized vehicles on the main roads to Brussels that come to demonstrate in Belgium. The Region and the City of Brussels will issue decrees banning demonstrations with trucks on their territory,” a Brussels statement said, according to The Independent.

Austrian police said in routing the convoy into Vienna would cause an “unacceptable nuisance in terms of noise in a popular recreation area”  and increase pollution.

“The planned use of horns and loudspeakers to bypass the ring road throughout the evening and night significantly exceeds the level of noise that can otherwise be tolerated,” police said.

Teachers Across France Stage Mass Walkout Over Govt’s Ever-Changing COVID-19 Rules

Teachers across France staged a mass walkout this week in protest over the government’s ever-changing COVID-19 rules for those working in the education sector which they say fail to protect both staff and students.

The French Ministry of Education estimated that around 31 percent of all school teachers across the country took part in the strike on Thursday, 38 percent of whom worked in primary schools and nearly 24 percent in secondary schools.

A statement from the Mayor of Paris’ office said that in the capital city, roughly 58 percent of the teaching staff took part in the strike, and around 200 schools were forced to close, although trade and teachers unions put those figures much higher, at 75 percent.

The protests came as teachers across France are growing increasingly frustrated with the government’s ever-changing policies regarding the pandemic which has seen testing rules for children changed several times since the start of this year alone, oftentimes at the very last minute.

On top of that, educators say the government’s approach to the pandemic is failing to protect children or ensure replacement cover for teachers who are falling ill with the coronavirus. Unions are also calling on the government to provide more protective FFP2 face masks for staff as well as carbon dioxide monitors in classrooms so that they can ensure that they are sufficiently ventilated, as per The Guardian.

Despite a surge in virus cases in schools across France, which have reached record highs of close to 370,000 new daily cases, the government has so far kept classes open and required all pupils in contact with an infected person to get tested three times.

“We had reached such a level of exasperation, tiredness, and anger that we didn’t have any other option but to organize a strike to send a strong message to the government,” union leader Elisabeth Allain-Moreno said.

On Monday, French Prime Minister Jean Castex announced that the rules were changing yet again, telling  TV station France 2 that students would now be required to take three self-administered COVID-19 at home, which will be free, as opposed to having PCR or antigen tests and then two self-administered tests on day two and day four.

“This will have an effect on the queues [outside pharmacies],” Castex said.

But on Thursday, Snuipp-F.S.U., a leading union of elementary school personnel, criticized the government for allegedly updating the rules via the media as opposed to informing teachers beforehand.

“The prime minister’s televised speech ignoring the demands of personnel has once again demonstrated government contempt amplifying their anger and their mobilization,” SUNipp-FSU said.

“Once again, the protocol relief is announced in the media, and staff in schools must respond from this morning to family questions without any official instructions.”

The union stressed that the mass protests were not “a strike against the virus” but illustrated the growing frustrations among teachers, noting that the lack of replacements for sick teachers is adding extra pressure on the education system.

“Not only does the current protocol fail to protect students, staff, and their families but it also completely disorganizes the school,” SUNipp-FSU said. “Under current conditions, students cannot learn correctly.”

France has seen dozens of protests in recent months over the strict measures that have been put in place across the nation in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The country has enforced a health pass, meaning that people have to show either proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter restaurants, cafes, and bars, visit cinemas and use inter-regional trains.

However, the government wants to enact a law by the middle of this month which would drop that health pass and stop unvaccinated people from being able to enter hospitality venues, essentially banning unvaccinated people from public life.

President Emmanuel Macron has been outspoken about his thoughts on those who refuse to get vaccinated and promised to make their lives miserable, which sparked backlash across the nation.

“I’m not for pissing off the French … Now the unvaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And so, we’re going to keep doing it, until the end. This is the strategy,” Macron said during an interview with Le Parisien earlier this month.

Macron added that while he “won’t send [unvaccinated people] to prison”, he “will make their lives more complicated and encourage people who refuse to get vaccinated to do so by “limiting as much as possible their access to activities in social life.”

“So we need to tell them—from Jan. 15, you will no longer be able to go to the restaurant. You will no longer be able to go for a coffee, you will no longer be able to go to the theatre. You will no longer be able to go to the cinema,” he said.

France is one of the most highly vaccinated countries in the world, with more than 90 percent of people aged 12 and older being fully vaccinated.

Weekly Report (Jan 12th – 18th) Burisma Shrugged, Impeachment Managers, Prince Harry

Ryan DeLarme,
January 18th, 2020

The Underground Newswire does not seek to convince or sway, rather it is our hope to indicate and suggest without violating the universal and self evident laws of free will and confusion. We’d like first and foremost to suggest that we are all, every one of us, in the midst of a quiet war fought with silent weapons. The fight is world wide, louder in some places than others (think revolutions simultaneously occurring across the globe IE: Hong Kong, France, Iran, Venezuela, ETC.) It is a psychological war, and the front lines are quite literally human hearts and minds. With these weekly reports, we hope to offer alternative perspectives and speculation coming from an amalgamation of sources involved in Media, Military, Finance, and politics.


The mainstream media continues to neglect explosive topics like the Bidens and Burisma, Ukraine, Crowdstrike, Iran, FISA abuse, Spying, and of course any protests happening abroad that involve the people rising up against their Central Bank appointed leaders, only mentioning the above topics when attempting to spin them. The MSM parrot endless myths about “Russian Hacking” at the DNC (more recently this tactic is being used to dismiss the shady Burisma scandal) despite the fact that Julian Assange has stated the DNC hack was an “inside job” and claims to have proof that it was the late Seth Rich who exposed the sabotage of Bernie Sanders in favor of Hillary Clinton. On that note, Assange will be in court next month, and this case could be HUGE.

So we have the Elite’s mouthpiece the New York Times going on and on about Russians hacking Burisma to get ahead of the story and to steer the sheep away from sniffing out the blatant corruption. Now, the Department of Energy has agreed to release documents related to Ukraine including former Energy Secretary Rick Perry’s communication with high ranking Ukrainian officials, this comes after a FOIA(Freedom Of Information Act) lawsuit filed by American oversight and watchdog group. It also sought records relating to the departments communication with Rudi Juliani. The Department of Energy agreed to start releasing documents by January 28th, a second cache by February 4th, and a third cache by March 16th.

The Deepstate is obviously hoping these documents will be damning towards Trump while the “patriots” expect these documents will include details about Hunter Biden, Hillary Clinton, Burisma, and Crowdstrike. If true, the MSM will just have to find something else to report about as the name of the game is information warfare, where control of the narrative and public opinion is power. This was exemplified recently when Breaking News Live had their twitter suspended after reporting that “Head of Ukrainian gas Company Burisma indicted, Hunter Biden named accepting millions from slush fund”.  


President Emmanuel Macron has been forced by large-scale demonstrations and strikes to back down on his plans to steal pension money from his people. However, the French are aware he stole the election that put him in power and that he does not work for the French people.  Since French living standards are continuing to plummet, his regime will not be able to stabilize the situation. It’s time for the French generals to take action before it is too late.


The Senate trial MIGHT start next week but who really knows anymore, the apparent urgency to impeach Trump seems to have dissipated for the moment. McConel has said “tuesday” but we’ll see. Now there are rumblings that neocon John Bolton would like to testify but it is uncertain whether he will turn over evidence or just be another disgruntled employee who wasn’t allowed to wage endless wars. If John Bolton truly had any information that the “Deep State” could use in this impeachment scam they would have had it by now, so likely all this Bolton business is just more theatre. Bolton was removed via house cleaning and now he is salty, easy as that.

Speaking of the Impeachment, the impeachment “managers” (criminal politicians beholden to the Banking Cartels, CIA, etc.) Were pulling out the stops to build the narrative and make it seem real, going so far as to commemorate a “sad and somber day” with special pens and an exaggerated, melodramatic walk for the cameras featuring Adam Schiff and even Jerry Nadler managed to waddle through the whole ordeal.

While we’re on the subject, here is an explanation as to why this is all happening. Feinstein essentially runs congress, Her, Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff, McConnell and about 20 others make up the “management team” who are really the political puppets that run this country like a juanta type system complete with wetworks, entrenched bureaucrats, intel agencies, etc. They have integrated criminal factions (Mafia, MS-13) into their operations Via the CIA, they do business with drug cartels and have massive under the table operations with China, Russia, and others. Basically, they’re selling off America one chunk at a time to ensure their families a seat at the globalist table when all is said and done. 

This administration, or rather the rogue military  intelligence operation that used the Trump campaign as a trojan horse, is not about Democrats, Republicans, GOP etc. but is about finding the honest parts of government, gathering them together, and ejecting the Cabal of corrupt and compromised individuals legally and without inciting a civil war, which is why most of this operation is carried out behind the scenes.

These career politicians or “management team” has been working tirelessly to get rid of Trump and the “white hats” in the military who’ve allegedly asked him to run, to contain what has been exposed or use the Media to denounce even considering their crimes and to keep the public from putting it all together. 

So what are we really witnessing then if we can’t trust the MSM to do anything but spout propaganda? We are watching POTUS and company  systematically isolate conspirators away from the rest of congress on both sides of the political aisle, they are making deals with folks from both parties who have been snared by Epstein/MOSSAD style honeypots or financial misdeeds (think sealed indictments as leverage, can make them go away if they play ball). More will come out on this when the time is right, which will likely come when the last of those who took a deal are debriefed and have had their testimony worked into the clean-up effort.

We’re at a very critical moment, where the people who would take the deal have already taken them and those too far entrenched (management team) have refused and are clamoring to whatever they can to stop what is supposedly coming. Sources who claim to be among these “white hats” have said that this plan has been in the works since Kennedy, they say the president has been preparing for this for “20 years” and that the folks in military planning have been perfecting this for the last “56 years”. I don’t know what to think about all that and am hesitant to put my money on any outcome, but I will at least report on it.


The Awan brothers are back in the news, Judicial Watch is going after them and alleged sources from “Military Intelligence” have said “You didn’t think it would end with the plea deal, did you?”. A federal court ordered a snap hearing after the Justice Dept. submitted information under seal following the courts demand for explanation why no records have been produced in the ongoing legal battle for documents involving the scandal and the Awan brothers. If you’re in the dark on this topic, basically the Awan brothers were not given background checks before being given access to HIGHLY sensitive government information, if they had done the proper background checks they would have found plenty of red flags including several criminal convictions, a dozen lawsuits, and bankruptcy to name a few points of interest. I think it is safe to say the background check was skipped on purpose.


Some light has been shed on Prince Harry’s sudden decision to distance himself from the Royal Family and his multi-billion dollar inheritance, coming out publicly to say that  he fled to Canada to save his family from the same fate that befell his mother, Princess Diana.

UNW Weekly Report (12/22-12/28): French Protests, Barr vs Soros, More Resignations

By Ryan DeLarme
December 28th, 2019

DISCLAIMER: The Underground Newswire does not seek to convince or sway, rather it is our hope to indicate and suggest without violating the universal and self evident laws of free will and confusion. We’d like first and foremost to suggest that we are all, every one of us, in the midst of a quiet war fought with silent weapons. The fight is world wide, louder in some places than others (think revolutions simultaneously occurring across the globe IE: Hong Kong, France, Iran, Venezuela, ETC.) It is a psychological war, and the front lines are quite literally human hearts and minds. With these weekly reports, we hope to offer alternative perspectives and speculation coming from an amalgamation of sources involved in Media, Military, Finance, and politics.


 I hope everyone had a lovely Solstice, Holiday, Christmas, Yule, Saturnalia, etc. whatever you choose to call it, I hope you got to spend it with the people you love. Let’s dive right into it then, shall we? 


We mention and remind folks every week that there are revolutions taking place all across the globe, people have grown tired of the non-elected leaders (aka the central banking system) and their political pawn cronies (Angela Merkle, Emanuel Macron, Theresa May, Shinzo Abe, Xi Jinping, Justin Trudeau, etc.). We see little to no press on this stateside and when we do it is always down played, misrepresented, and the blame is typically relegated to a single issue (think last years yellow vests protesting only a fuel tax, something we reported on HERE.)

On that note, things are heating up once again as French union activists cut electricity to nearly 100,000 homes or offices. Eiffel Tower staff walked off the job. Even Paris opera workers joined in Tuesday’s nationwide protests across France as workers rallied against the government’s plan to raise the retirement age to 64.

Despite 13 days of crippling train and subway strikes, French President Emmanuel Macron and his government stayed firm. The prime minister declared his “total” determination to reshape a pension system that unions celebrate as a model for the rest of the world but that he calls unfair and destined to collapse into debt.


Many are aware of George Soros, as well as his Open Society and One Foundation, but then of course many are not. If you are far removed from the worlds of Global finance, Philanthropy or Political Conspiracy, then why would you? He’s been linked to funding things like Antifa, the Caravan to the Border, Drug/Human trafficking, crashing the British stock market in 92 (making roughly 10 billion for his hedge fund), Global racketeering and the Rise of Greta Thurnberg as well as everyone’s favorite horrifically biased “fact-checker” Snopes, the coming Ukraine super scandal, and working as a destabilization agent for people who are far more powerful than even him (People like THIS).

Attorney General Bill Barr, who sources from Navy Intelligence claim is one of many tasked with bringing down a “Deep State” in Washington, seems to have recently and publicly set his sights on Soros. Usually you hear about low level lackeys and henchmen like James Comey, Joe Bidden or Adam Schiff, but rarely do you see a major player like this openly in the cross-hairs. Perhaps this is confirmation that the quiet war really IS reaching a boiling point. It has been said that this man represents everything that has gone wrong with the Democratic party in recent decades. As with Trump, I try not to form a personal opinion because I’ve obviously never met George Soros, I’m just reporting what I hear and have found, and suggest everyone else do the same when it comes to hearsay.

Apparently the “Far left” billionaire has been systematically targeting district attorney races throughout the United States. Many of his backed candidates have won their races and are causing “havoc” across the country. This comes to us from State Department Watch and you can read about these individuals and their associated crimes HERE.

This week US Attorney General Bill Barr spoke with Martha MacCallum, calling out George Soros for subverting the legal system in the US and creating more crime and violence. We’ll be keeping an eye on how all this proceeds.

Now many will read “Far Left” and instantly think this man is on their side, I would caution these folks to reconsider. Despite his proclaimed affiliations with Democratic candidates he seems to be the opposite, in fact, if he truly belongs to any party it would be the lower rungs of the Global Financial Elite. He’s been described as “A parasite attached to the Democratic party”. In my own words I’d describe this fellow as a financial powerhouse who understands the growing popularity of Compassion and maintains a certain veneer as the perfect cover for his own agendas.


In resignation news we have a few doozy’s to mention, firstly (and perhaps most notably) we have Pearson PLC Chief Executive John Fallon announcing his “retirement” and has agreed to sell its 25% stake in Penguin Random House to Bertelsmann SE & Co. KGaA for $675 million. An interesting caveat here is that Obama gave Pearson Publishing $350 million to create the Common Core text and Pearson, in turn, gave Obama a $65 million dollar book deal (the very definition of quid pro quo, establishment media remains silent).

It’s not some huge secret that publishing a book is an effective way to launder money. We see time after time big politicians writing books that nobody reads and are pawned off cheap immediately by the retail stores, we also know non-fiction are slow sellers and it’s hard to make much money at it. You can read up on this type of laundering with a simple google search, and this specific case you can learn more about HERE and HERE.

Other high profile “resignations” this past week include President of Iraq Barham Salih (who resigned amid protests), Boeing USA CEO Dennis Mulienburg and senior adviser Mike Luttig, Nissan Motor Co Vice COO Jun Seki, and though they didn’t exactly occur in the last week, an important pair of resignations to watch and remember going forward was that of Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
