If you thought the US election in 2020 was bad, it’s nothing compared to the mock elections just held in France. Emmanuel Macron, a former Rothschild banker and “Young Global Leader” of the World Economic Forum, may have been crowned “winner”, but millions of Le Pen voters lost their ballots and rights on Sunday, En-volve.com writes.
In France, if a ballot is damaged, it cannot be cast. So the political establishment, desperate to install Macron in office for another five years, saw to it that millions of Le Pen ballots were destroyed.
According to an eerily similar scenario from the last French presidential election in 2017, evidence circulating on Twitter shows that the same problem arose then – damaged ballots. In 2017, Britain’s Daily Mail reported that 4.2 million “messed up ballots” had been reported by electoral authorities, a huge number in an election that saw a total of 36 million people vote.
An invalid ballot is a ballot with strange characters that has been defaced, torn, or is otherwise unacceptable. They are automatically rejected and cannot be counted. Usually, botched ballots in the US don’t exceed 1%.
In 2017, the UK report assumed that 4.2 million people in France had messed up their own ballot papers, speculating that:
“It is estimated that a record-breaking 12 percent of French voters have screwed up their ballots — seemingly put off by both politicians [Macron and Le Pen] who are not members of the mainstream parties.”
Fast forward to 2022 and the British Guardian reports:
“The botched vote count, and the abstention rate, were also alarmingly high.”
But no exact numbers of rejected votes are available. Why do the authorities not want to release the number of votes declared invalid?
Stephen Lendman reports that in 2017:
“Only Le Pen’s ballots were found to be damaged or destroyed, none for Macron.”
Lendman says it looks like Macron has won again “the old-fashioned way”.
As today, Le Pen’s name is consistently prefaced with the descriptor “far right”, while Macron escapes any biased descriptor. Le Pen, however, rejects “Frexit”, akin to Britain’s Brexit from the EU, saying she would place French forces “neither under an integrated NATO command nor under a future European command…”.
Le Pen calls Macron a “puppet of the globalists”.
According to pre-election polls, Macron and Le Pen were still neck and neck on April 10, within the margin of error.
The rejected ballots are seen in the Twitter video below, all from Le Pen, all have disqualifying cracks in roughly the same place. The French government keeps the invalid ballots.
