Amir’s commentary on Emmanuel Macron’s mysterious rise to power and how the French President is now seen as the “Savior of Europe”
French President Emmanuel Macron was labeled by The Economist this week to be the “Savior of Europe”, the French president quickly rising to power followed by a landslide victory in France’s Parliament.
Macron’s Republic on the Move (LREM) together with the MoDem party won a sweeping majority for the French National Assembly, despite the lowest turnout in 50 years by voters.
Macron assumed leadership that was never given to him, the French quietly throwing its traditional political system out of the window. His party, LREM, composed of political novices, rose to power in less than a year’s time and is expected to take sweeping majority of France’s parliament.
The French president was able to provide the change the French people wanted in government: a new, fresh face, committed to a strong, reformed France as a major, if not most significant leader within the European Union.
The “Juniper theory” was used through out Macron’s presidential campaign and has become the President’s method of governing. The theory refers to Macron’s isolation from previous friends, colleagues and advisors, mainly that of his silence and lack of access to the French head of state- like Juniper, god of the heavens.
Macron rarely appears in public, and communication with the president is only permitted to his closest advisors. France’s prime minister will work with the new parliament and maintain Macron’s order.
Macron has been known to speak little and rarely agrees to be interviewed. His mystery and isolation are not just within the political realm, but applies to the media.
His method of ruling is mysterious and behind closed doors.
As I have taught and wrote about last week, Macron’s government is centered on the European Union. Within a Europe filled with fear and confusion post Brexit, Macron was a light of promised reform.
Just last week, a spokesman for Macron stated on the party’s victory in elections for the French National Assembly “We in France want to build a strong Europe economically, politically and militarily,” stating that it would now (with the election of Macron and majority in the Assembly) be easier for Europe to be global player. He stated that Europe has not been the center of the globe as it does not know what I wants, pointing out the globe turns to the United States and Russia for guidance, not Europe… We want to build a strong Europe that will speak with one voice, that will have one army, and perhaps even one economy… We will have to worry about the rest of the world, which will make it easier to do what we have to do” adding that “no one knows what will be of Donald Trump.”
Stay informed on current events and Bible prophecy. Pay close attention to France and the European Union.
