Sunday, Marie Le Pen lost the French National election for president. Emmanuel Macron won a convincing victory and is now the president-elect of France. He is dedicated to having France remain part of the European Union; continuing to support unmitigated immigration. And he is now beholden to those benefitting from a continuation and advancement of globalism.

The uniqueness of the French character will be much diminished five years from now when the French people will have a chance again to pick a president. I hope that it is still recognizable as French.

Macron is young (39) and was elected as a centrist. We shall see if he will live up to that promise or will be the leftist that we all expect.

Further, he will be besieged from the outset by the scandal of his personal finances.

Macron apparently has undisclosed assets in private bank accounts in the Caribbean. This fact was disclosed by WikiLeaks in the last days of the election and is a subject of which he has lied (or at least was very precise in not telling the truth).

Accused of having accounts with undisclosed assets in the Bahamas, he denied it loudly and vocally. In fact, there is evidence that this account is in Cayman Islands.

These accounts were successfully disguised by Macron allies during the campaign— the EU powers and the deep state that they control. This will take some time to sort out after the election.

Of course, the media is focused not on the veracity of the charge but on the source of the information — WikiLeaks, 4Chan, and others on the right fighting against the deep state.

Captain Louis Renault of Casablanca fame would be proud of the French media and other authorities rounding up the usual suspects of the ubiquitous Russian hackers — as if it mattered who exposed the truth.

This is, of course, the way that the deep state keeps the focus off of the substance in the charges and on the boogeyman that they have created.

We’ll see if Macron has as easy of a time as Hillary has had so far with her servers and classified e-mail handling.

As for Marine Le Pen, she provided a short concession speech and was very direct.

In her speech, she made it clear that the cause of French nationalism is far from dead. She expects to do well in the legislative elections next month.

The parliamentary elections have a major change this year which should benefit the nationalism cause.

This will be the first parliamentary election ever where the parliamentarians may not hold local office simultaneously while they hold a seat in the National French Assembly.

It is expected that most of these current office holders will keep their local office and surrender their assembly seat. This will open many parliamentary seats to new office holders — seats which would not have been available before.

This is an opportunity for Le Pen and her party to build for the future — especially in rural areas.

Further, her showing Sunday was the best that her party, The National Front, has ever had in a national election. This is due to the fact that she is not like the National Front’s usual candidate.

As hard as the EU community and the French left tried, they could not bind her to racism, anti-Semitism, and other (now) past and passing traits of the party.

She is almost single-handedly reforming the image of her party and will continue to do so as time goes on. This is more than cosmetic. For example, Le Pen enjoyed remarkable support from gays, the youth, as well as the reliable conservative rural voters.

I have to think that if the National Republicans backed her, she would have won with an even greater coalition than that which either Donald Trump or Nigel Farage were able to form.

The National Front is actually transforming. It is becoming that of nationalism, not the party of racial purity. While the former is a worthy and even noble cause, jettisoning the latter is both essential and most desirable as it is obnoxious and hateful. Le Pen is accomplishing this.

It will take time for her to be recognized for this achievement. However, as she is so recognized, her star will continue to rise and the cause of French nationalism will overcome the EU state.

There is a bright future for Marine Le Pen and French nationalism.
