On 87-th year of life, Jacques Chirac died

From France there are reports that the former president of the country, Jacques Chirac, died at the age of 86. Chirac was in the presidency from 1995 to 2007. In France itself, Chirac is called the "last president of independent France", implying that today France is experiencing enormous dependence on the United States and enormous pressure from the United States.

It is worth noting that Chirac was fluent in Russian. The reason for this is as follows: the future French president at a young age took lessons from a former officer of the Russian imperial army. At the age of 19, Jacques Chirac presented his own translation into French of Pushkin's work “Eugene Onegin”. The translation seemed to the publishers to be “too original,” and so the version of Chirac was rejected. But when Chirac already became a well-known politician, all the publishers of France literally began to hunt for his work - for the primacy of publishing the very translation.

It is noteworthy that Jacques Chirac was a laureate of the State Prize of Russia. He was also awarded a medal dedicated to the 300 anniversary of St. Petersburg.

Chirac was prosecuted after two of his presidential terms. So, in the 2011 year he was sentenced by the court to the 2 years (conditionally) for "abuse of power."

He has repeatedly spoken out for deepening contacts with Russia and for ending the confrontation, the course towards which the European Union supports under American pressure.

      And what is sad about this? It awaits us all. But the real strong-willed individuals who did something for the country and the people will be remembered ... And someone will be forgotten the next day or remembered with curses.

    Usually they say: the deceased is good or nothing. All "kings can ...", but they cannot afford such luxury ...
    Let's take a look at the "outstanding achievements" of the generation of European politicians, to which J. Chirac belongs.

    It was these "Real Politicians" that for decades have led Europe to an external deplorable state:
    - Ideology: it was they who allowed to pervert the idea of ​​liberalism so that the mother would not recognize.
    And now authoritarian rulers of caricatured "pseudo-democracies" can openly mock her.
    It was "Real Politicians" that prepared everything for replacing "majority democracy" (this Basis of the liberal state!) With "dictatorship of minorities" (which, in fact, is a justification for the new aristocracy and ethnocracy). They were the ones who earned cheap political points in the "pinkish-greenish-bluish" field of European politics in the 80s and 90s.
    And they practiced the cynical skill of simultaneously exaggerating the victims where it was beneficial for them, and "not noticing" tens of thousands of those killed where it was not profitable.

    - Politics. What did all these "mitterans-shiraki-collies" and others do to create a new stable Europe ?? They completely submitted to the dictates of Washington.
    Maybe they created a European Army? - No, they chose not to lower their ratings, because the creation of an EU army would require an increase in taxes and a quarrel with the United States.
    Or maybe they have achieved the withdrawal of American troops?
    When Russia proposed the creation of a New Europe, they also preferred to push away her hand so as not to quarrel with the United States. Although they perfectly understood where it leads strategically.
    And what has the European Union turned into? - a mile away from him carries a late "scoop" (when slogans replace the necessary reforms - only the November 7 demonstrations are replaced by gay pride parades,
    and replace Kumachi with environmental ones).
    It was with them that the EU was created, from which Britain is now fleeing and others almost ran.
    The war in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya (the fact that they did not participate in NATO is just a "fig leaf", since they perfectly participated in the framework of "Atlantic solidarity").
    Postcolonial policy of "set fire and rule" in the Middle East and North Africa (everywhere they, if not themselves brought fire, then obligingly brought gasoline to the Americans).

    It was these "Real Politicians" that for decades have driven the moderate "right" (nationalists, traditionalists and Christian conservatives) to the margins of politics.
    And they cynically attracted the Jewish intelligentsia to defame the "right-wingers" (the University of Paris, which gets excited for any reason like a beehive!)
    Worried about migration? - "racist!" Concerned about the problems of the French? - “anti-Semite, haw him!” (exactly, as part of our Jewish intelligentsia, they agreed that AI Solzhenitsyn was not an intellectual, because he was “too” concerned with the problems of Russians.
    What should the Russian Intellectual Solozhenitsyn be concerned about? - well, of course, repentance to the "chosen people" and the elimination of "terrible Russian anti-Semitism" in oneself.
    We have no other problems.) Do you insist on the conventional definition of the family? - "homophobe!"

    It was this generation of "Real Politicians" who raised the current generation of politicians. He only knows how to properly summarize the problems of minorities, gender equality and the environment under any topic (the killer Bravik did not for nothing perpetrate his massacre in the camp for the future “left-liberal politicians.” He may be a nutty nazi, but he is mature at the root).
    The personnel training system breeds careerists, swimming like a fish in the water of vulgar "politically correct discourse", but unable to hear the people.
    How long have we ourselves complained about "gerontocracy" and "negative selection" in the USSR? - and here young, educated, energetic, but as sterile as the elderly Soviet bosses? A sad sight.

    - Education: it was they who turned higher education into the "senior group of kindergarten", where overgrown undersized children can still be children (in politically correct language this is called "socializing"). And this led to a significant drop in the quality of HE in France. To a shortage of middle personnel and to a decrease in the level of competitiveness.

    - Industry: it was "Real Politicians" that allowed big business in the 90s to massively move industry to Southeast Asia.
    With the simultaneous populist policy of social. guarantees within the framework of the social "welfare state", with constant compromise with the terror of trade unions.
    What made the products of French workers objectively uncompetitive in comparison with the products of S.-V. Asia and Eastern Europe.
    And the French, corrupted by populist politicians, hold demonstrations of thousands of people all year round with the deliberately impossible demands for "more guarantees, less taxes."

    - Immigration: it was they who, since the 60s, imported "slaves" from the former colonies.
    Caring only for cheap labor, they populated France with the tops of migrants. The consequences are known.

    Outstanding achievements ... Here is a monument, including the late Mr. J. Chirac.
    And if These are "Real Politicians", then only in comparison with their even more insignificant followers.
