Beautiful news all around!  The EU needs to fold obviously, but to my crude understanding, this is like the ideas of Rand Paul and Jill Stein doing well.  Hot damn, the world has awoken to globalism.  If a ticket like Sanders/Gabbard doesn't emerge from the dems (as though the DNC would ever allow that as a private corporation), Trump is going to win again despite being a deep state order taker like his predecessors.

Populist push, green wave, establishment in turmoil: a round-up of the EU elections


Sunday’s election results are set to reshape the EU’s governing coalition, as far-right parties and pro-European greens and liberals each make big gains at the expense of the establishment left and right.

Besides the populist push, a second key feature in Sunday’s reshuffling of the European electoral landscape was the defection of voters from the standard-bearers of the left and right toward liberal and green parties. France provides the clearest illustration, not only in the form of Macron’s En Marchebut in a surprise surge for Yannick Jadot’s Europe Ecologie les Verts. The party took third place with 13.5%, a significant increase over their 9.9% vote share in 2013 and over pre-election polling.

In France, President Emmanuel Macron’s La République en Marche(LREM) party and its opponents alike were determined to make the European elections a referendum on Macron’s presidency so far. Ultimately, this gamble swung in the far right’s favour, with Marine Le Pen's National Rally capturing a record number of votes (5.3 million, up from 4.7 million in 2014) and scraping past LREMto claim victory with 23.3% of votes.

In the United Kingdom, Nigel Farage’s newly formed, far-right Brexit Party rode a wave of frustration over the country’s faltering EU exit deal to take 29 of the country’s 73 seats. With 31.7% of the vote, Farage’s party was by far the biggest winner of an election that has punished both of Britain’s major parties for their waffling over Brexit. The governing Conservatives suffered the biggest blow, garnering only 8.7% of votes, while Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour took 14.1%.

Nice to see that some of Europe is waking up. I read an article earlier that Merkel is unretiring. So, looks like Germany is still on it's way to being Germaniastan.

Meanwhile over in the US I feel that Tulsi is the only one on the radar who can "out alpha" Trump with her calm demeanor, anti war stance, pro humanity positions and sensible truth telling.  When it becomes evident that the DNC and their fake media/fake entertainment/fake institutional arms are cheating progressives again (shouldn't that be abundantly clear already?), i hope she goes over to the green party with an equally high profile running mate.  Probably less than a 1% chance of this happening, but her support of Sanders in the last cycle shows that she's not afraid to at least attempt to shake things up. 

On the other hand a green ticket of Jesse Ventura/Miss Anarchist-Direct Democracy Herself Cynthia McKinney would be the best in history IMHO.
