"Right down the middle. You reckon it'll survive just fine. You got that. One surprising thing we learned this past week about president Macron is how troubled he is by how intolerance hate speech and cancel culture are amplified on social media on both sides of the Atlantic. Emotion is always stronger than argumentation. And negative emotion is stronger than positive emotion. So on a lot of the social platform, negative emotions. Feelings are the one to triumph. And during the past few years, we had such a resurgence of violence, hatred speeches, and a sort of inability of our own societies, to live together. And this is why we need a new process of civilization for our social networks. And we have to restore precisely what a democratic and respectful conversion means. Exchanging opinions and ideas, sometimes to agree sometimes to disagree. I'm Bill Whitaker. We'll be back next week with another edition of 60 minutes.

"Biden potentially opened Pandora's box to a mad scramble to fix it sooner rather than later. Allen says. Former French ambassador to Washington, Gerard arrow, said on France's LCI television on Thursday morning that some of the Biden provisions drawing frustration in Europe were part of a protectionist trend in American politics that spanned the Trump and Biden administrations. President Trump and Biden have listened to their voters. And so they're reinforcing their protectionism, arose said. It's a long-term protectionism that will not stop. It didn't stop with Trump, or with Biden, and the Europeans must understand this. For his part, Macron has urged his fellow European countries to work to come up with their own economic incentives. That could be done in coordination with the U.S. government. We can't ask the United States to resolve Europe's problems, Macron told reporters on Thursday. We in Europe must move stronger and faster, Macron said. Hosting the French president for Biden's first state dinner is part of the repair work being done by the Biden administration after it blindsided France last year by agreeing to work with Australia on building a nuclear powered submarine fleet. The surprise announcement sank Francis on lucrative submarine deal with Australia and caused Paris to temporarily recall its ambassadors from Washington and Canberra. The Biden administration's decision to fet Macron in Washington is also an acknowledgment that Macron has emerged in the wake of political turnover across the continent as the strongest, most high profile European leader. Biden started off his meeting with Macron on Thursday, with some flattery. Emmanuel is not just the leader of France. He's one of the leaders of Europe. He spent very outspoken, and he has been very, very commanding in Europe, Biden said, sitting next to Macron in the Oval Office. Macron could use the boost, as he faces harsh political headwinds at home, and is eager to play up his influence on the world stage to his audience back in France. His party lost control of France's parliamentary majority in April, and discontent over rising energy costs and economic pain is sapping his popularity. As Macron arrived in Washington on Wednesday, a new poll showed his approval rating at 37%, down 6% since his reelection in April. Earlier this year, Macron repeatedly spoke to Putin after the Russian autocrat started rolling tanks toward Kyiv in February. But failed to find diplomatic footing and risked fragmenting support for Ukraine before he begged off the effort. Macron acknowledged on Thursday that the time and terms for peace talks must be determined by Ukraine, Biden said he was prepared to speak with Putin if he's looking for a way to end the war, Biden said he had no immediate plans to talk to the Russian leader. And he talks he had with Putin would be in close consultation with European allies. The meeting of the two leaders at The White House on Thursday went more than an hour longer than planned. Biden presented Macron with a mirror made from wood that fell on The White House grounds, and a record collection of American musicians, among the gifts Macron gave Biden was a vinyl record of the 1966 French film, a man and a woman, the story of a couple who have lost their spouses, falling in love, that Biden saw on an early date with First Lady Jill Biden. The visit was set to continue Thursday night with an elaborate state dinner featuring Maine lobster, American Caviar, Napa Valley Chardonnay, and a performance from New Orleans songwriter and singer Jean
Biden says climate law has 'glitches' after Macron criticism
"As he hosts his administration's first state visit, President Biden is acknowledging French concerns over his signature climate change law. Amid the pomp of French president Emmanuel Macron's White House visit, differences over trade shadow the occasion. Macron and other European leaders say incentives in the inflation reduction act favor American made climate technology and while he applauds U.S. efforts to fight climate change, the subsidies would hurt European companies. We want to succeed together not one against the other. At a joint news conference President Biden said he makes no apologies for a law he wrote, but there are glitches. There's tweaks that we can make. Macron says the nations will re synchronize their clean energy efforts, Sagar Meghani, Washington.
Red, white, blue theme for French White House state dinner
"President Biden is set to host the first White House state dinner since 2019. French president Emmanuel Macron and some 300 other guests will feast on White House chef Chris commerford's menu. Beautiful things from the land and sea. From the starter. Butter poached Maine lobster. To beef American cheeses and pastry chef Susie Morrison's dessert. Orange to 5 cake with roasted pears. All served with a red white and blue theme in a heated south lawn pavilion were First Lady Jill Biden is evoking the memory of her mom, whom she says made every dinner feel special, even if it was just frozen fish sticks. He would bring out the China and put fresh flowers on the table. In this case, guests will not dine on official White House China, which is not allowed outside the executive mansion.

Biden, Macron ready to talk Ukraine, trade in state visit
"France's president is heading to Washington for the first state visit of Joe Biden's presidency. The relationship between the two presidents had a choppy start last year, French president Emmanuel Macron briefly recalled his ambassador to the United States due to a spat over a submarine steel. However, the relationship has since turned around with Macron emerging as one of Biden's most forward facing European allies in regards to the war in Ukraine. The leaders have a lot to discuss during Macron's visit, including Iran's nuclear program and China's assertiveness in the indo Pacific. I'm Karen Chammas

"It's the first state visit that Joe Biden has hosted of any president. Sophie better is our Paris bureau chief. And for Emmanuel Macron, his second state visit because he was hosted by Donald Trump back in 2018, and that's the very first time, therefore, that a French president in modern times will have been treated to two state visits to America. So I think the symbol is important. The fever that America is granting France is important and Macron will get the full honors that he'll have the state banquet at The White House that will be full military honors when he arrives and there will be a lot of show of warm feeling between the two countries. But this does come at a time when America has been trying very hard to patch up what has been difficult relations with France. Why have those relations have been difficult? Just over a year ago, the orcas security arrangement was unveiled between the U.S., Britain and Australia. Today we join our nations in the next generation partnership. Creating a new trilateral defense partnership known as orcas, our nations will update and enhance our shared ability to take on the threats of the 21st century. Just as we did in the 20th century, together and this was a trilateral security pact which involved technology sharing, but it also torpedoed a submarine contract that France had with Australia to build submarines for that country and also France's indo Pacific strategy was very much undermined by this deal. The French were absolutely furious at the time. They felt that they had been stabbed in the back. But they still had been kept quiet. It was actually strategically dangerous that it was going to increase the chance of nuclear conflict with China. It was very bad news for France, but not just for France because I think it's a better bad news for credibility and and Macron was very blunt about it when he was asked if he thought Scott Morrison, who was prime minister of Australia at the time, had lied to him, Macron was very clear about that. I don't think I know. So it didn't look good for diplomacy. There was a lot of bad feeling in Paris. Macara actually pulled back the French ambassadors both from Washington and from Canberra. And since then, America has worked really hard to try and patch up the relationship. Biden and Macron met in Rome, a year ago, and I think that the state prison it has to be seen in the context of America making a big effort to make sure that it has a good relationship with France. And why does that relationship count so much for America right now? Well, I think the main reason is the war in Ukraine, America needs Europe to remain united and France, therefore, is a key ally in bringing others on side. The two countries didn't see eye to eye right at the start. If you think back to the beginning of the war in February, the Americans had been predicting this for months and the French were not at all sure that Putin would really go to war so they were quite different readings of the intelligence that the two countries were getting. But the views of the two countries have converged over time I would say and that they both, I think now agree on where they stand, that is to say, very firm support for Ukraine, very firm stance in terms of sanctions against Russia. But also agreeing that they do want to do everything to avoid escalation. And that there is a sense that both America and France are prepared to say out loud that at some point negotiations are going to have to take place to find a diplomatic solution to end this war. And in particular, I think in that context, the Americans appreciate the fact that Macron speaks to Putin from time to time. It is controversial and some people's eyes in Europe, but I think that the Americans feel that that is a useful diplomatic channel. they're already on the same page then. Well, I wouldn't say on every issue, I think that there was some surprise in Washington at Macron's comment at the G 20 meeting in Indonesia when he said that China could play a mediating role in Ukraine. I think that the Americans are hoping that this doesn't mean China could become a peacekeeper between Russia and Ukraine. And I think that that's not what Macron meant. I think what he was trying to get at, and this is where the Americans can come on board is that Xi Jinping is a way to try to international pressure on Putin if Xi Jinping is prepared to have that kind of conversation with Putin to try and make him see hostilities or further hostilities. Because America and Europe both want that to happen, but also from America's point of view, they need European support in their own efforts to constrain China in the end of Pacific. And in that respect, France is an important ally for the Americans. So why though is France such an important player in the indo Pacific region then? Well, I think it's sometimes not quite understood how far France is present in the end of Pacific region. It has territories in both the Indian and the Pacific oceans and it actually has over a million French citizens living in this region. So it is considered a powerhouse in the region. It has a naval presence there regularly. And at the same time, France in the European Union is the only real military power or heavyweight power, now that Britain has left the European Union. Germany is trying to build up its military presence, but it's a long way from being anywhere close to France. And therefore, America has to do with France if it's going to talk about defense and security, both in Europe, but also much further away. And that is not to say that France is always an easy partner to deal with. It can be quite sort of headstrong and it can irritate our lives from time to time, but the fact is that it does have global reach. It is prepared to mount expeditionary military operations and those make it a very useful interlocutor for the Americans. So plenty to chew over there, but that's not all that mister Biden and mister Macron have to talk about clearly. No, one of the most pressing issues is actually going to be commercial. So not defense and security at all and right now the Europeans are quite angry at the consequences of the American inflation reduction act and its decision to massively subsidize green industry. And that really worries the Europeans because they feel that their own companies are now at risk. They're ready suffering from soaring energy prices as a fallout from the Ukraine war and sanctions and that this is going to make things even more difficult. So that's one issue and the other issue, of course, is the export of American gas, Europeans are very happy to have all this liquified natural gas arriving in Europe. They need it because the gas taps have been cut off from Russia, but they're not so happy at the prices that the Americans are charging for it. So you do have these big commercial trade issues that are going to be on the table. They will be discussed and that is going to make it testing even for two countries that consider themselves each other's oldest ally. So you think real business will get done here. This is a state visit that is more than just pageantry. Well, there's obviously the whole pageantry as part of it, the symbolism, the state dinner, the banquet at The White House, and macro is also going to New Orleans at the end of his trip to Washington where he'll be celebrating French and American ties over architecture and culture. There will be plenty of that. But I think that Macron also is someone who likes to get things done and do some sort of deals and to talk seriously about a whole host of other issues. They may not be tangible, agreement signed at the end of them, but he wants to talk about climate. He wants to talk about Africa. He wants to talk about the global south and there are lots of other issues that he will want to raise with the Biden administration and really try and move forward on that perhaps aren't that visible during a state visit, but they are very much part of what

Are the Good Guys Winning Again? Lord Conrad Black Explains
"As if we've had an intermezzo a little hiatus in conservative successes, especially with what happened in 2020 with the elections here in America. But it looks as if given Sweden given Italy that the good guys are winning again. Is it too early to say that? I don't think so. I don't think so. The 2020 election obviously is a special case. I mean, despite the frenzied and it must be said, somewhat successful efforts of a unanimous national political media to maintain the pretense. There's no possible question about that election. It is clear as we get close to the midterms that approximately half the people suspect that it was a cooked result. At least in part. And so we will never know. You can't change presidents now, but that was just a very unusual election in a pandemic with a lot of new and easily abused rules of voting and vote counting. So it doesn't really stand there as a turning point in ideological or policy terms. But the rest of the trend, I think, is fairly clear. You have a movement to the right within the Conservative Party of the United Kingdom. Gains for the right and the recent French elections and the incumbent reelected government of president Macron moving somewhat to the right within the spectrum to accommodate that. The election in Italy, the election of a distinctly more conservative leader of the opposition in Canada. And as far as we can tell, you don't want to be premature, but the polls on balance coming up to the midterms do show a trend somewhat towards the Republicans. So

Robert Wilkie Reflects on the Anniversary of the Afghanistan Takeover
"Wilkie, we were talking in the break. If you're on ram, but you can hear our discussion. Different styles of leadership. I'd like you to expand upon that. But first, your reminiscences of this anniversary. Well, sadly, it brought back memories of the 1970s. I was old enough to take in what was happening. But it was a very different level of disappointment. My father was a senior officer in the 82nd airborne division back at fort Bragg. When Saigon fell. And the countenance of the senior leaders in our neighborhood. After all, of the blood and treasure spent in South Vietnam. Sadness, the evacuation is showed that the United States was not an omnipotent, although we had basically pulled out. It was very different from what was happening in Afghanistan. We just had a few people at the embassy. Yeah, it wasn't thousands of people. No. We didn't leave. We didn't leave soldiers behind. Oh, there's some would say that we left POWs behind. But very different dynamic then. This showed the world that at the very best, the national security leadership of the United States was incompetent. There's a reason why the Taliban did not kill American soldiers on Donald Trump's watch. Because they feared what the retaliation might be. This president not only abandoned American equipment. He abandoned American allies, did not have the common decency to tell Boris Johnson or Macron or Merkel. That we were pulling out. That we were leaving.

The bottom's going to fall out of this. We have $300 trillion of debt. We now have an economy global economy. That's not just in the recession. I think in certain areas, it's reaching to a depression. You're having, I think, 50 countries on the watch list to have their sovereign debt start to collapse. You're seeing this in Europe right now. That's why you're starting to see changes of government, you know, or said there's going to be ten. We've already had one in the UK. We've had France basically reject Macron 30 days after he was elected by the national elections. The government in Italy has fallen. Other governments will fall. We're in for a really a very tough part of the fourth turning is upon us. I think we're looking over a financial and economic abyss. And what's most disturbing is that the Wall Street and global corporations are absolutely totally confused about this, given that they've added so much to this crisis. And

"About leaked documents that show the lengths to which Uber went to take on the taxi industry in country after country. In France, the Uber files have provoked new questions about the role of president Emmanuel Macron. Here's Rebecca rossman. Uber's courting of Macron started in 2014, according to text messages and emails leaked by a former Uber executive. The company was desperately looking for an ally who could help them expand their operations in France. Emmanuel Macron was then working as the economy minister under socialist president Francois Hollande. Amidst the trove of more than a 124,000 documents known as the Uber files that was proof of secret meetings with lobbyists, reassurances of support, and suggestions that Macron offered to help Uber expand the company at the expense his critics say of France's license taxi drivers. As much as. On Tuesday, Macron brushed off the allegations, telling reporters he was, quote, proud of supporting Uber because they created jobs for French workers. And he would do it again tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. French authorities quickly backed the president, saying his actions were part of his normal duties as minister. But opposition politicians on the political left and far right are calling for a parliamentary inquiry into the details of Macron's relationship with Uber. Speaking of France Ontario radio on Tuesday, far left MP Francois Rouen called for an investigation into Macron's 2017 presidential campaign donors, implying some sort of ongoing quid pro quo. Macon, meanwhile, has praised Uber for giving jobs to thousands of young people from the troubled working class suburbs. That explanation isn't enough to please France's licensed cab drivers who unlike Uber drivers have to undergo around 300 hours of training and pay up to €250,000 for an official taxi license. So far their protests against what they call the organization of France haven't worked. But opposition forces in parliament say this time, they're going to make sure the president listened.

"At the same time, the far right got a shocking boost too. Marine le pen, the leader of the national rally party, said her goal was to unite the left and the right in opposing mister Macron. It all leaves the president stuck in a center that did not hold. Last night's result was really quite a shock for a menu of Macron. Sophie Petter is The Economist's Paris bureau chief. He lost his parliamentary majority. He lost over a hundred seats in parliament, including some of his very key and old time allies. And he is faced now with an unprecedented situation in which he is going to have to try to govern without a majority and that is going to make it extraordinarily difficult for him going forward. All the promises he made during the presidential campaign are now looking extremely shaky and we're looking at a turbulent time ahead for France, I think. So just give us a recap on how this played out. How did people vote? Well, Emmanuel Macron's party got 245 seats it needs 289 for a majority, so it's far short of that. On the left wing of the political spectrum, it was Jean Luc's Melissa, who has become now the biggest opposition party. They ended up with a 137 seats. And on the far right or the nationalist populist right, marine le pen's party came out with 89 seats. That's ten times what they had last time. So we are looking at a completely different National Assembly with very strong blocks on both the far left and the far right. And we've spoken a lot over the past year about the French left and it was fragmented and let's say hopeless. What's changed here? Well, I think what's very interesting on the left is that it has been plagued for years by fighting, squabbling between the different parties, what melons shall manage to do was only a month ago was to stitch together this coalition that he called new pets. Which is made up of parties that such as the communists, the socialists, the greens, these are parties that actually don't share an awful lot on some subjects. For example, the socialist and the greens are very pro European, melancholy is not men also is anti nuclear power, the communists are in favor of nuclear power in France. So there are a lot of internal divisions which in the past have got in the way, but this time for once, and it was really unprecedented. They found common ground and decided to settle those differences, and that has put them in a strong position, but it's a pretty left wing overall position because melancholy was clearly the leader of this party. He dictated almost the terms of the agreement and wanted, for example, at once to bring down the pension age from 62 years to 60. So it is an alliance that shifts the central gravity considerably to the left. And what about the other side of the spectrum, the result from the far right? Well, the biggest surprise I think in this election was that the marine le pen's party, she has done extraordinarily well. So if you look at the actual numbers are a number of things to point out, one of them is that her party is now bigger than the Republicans, the center right, traditional goris party in France, which is supplied many of the presidents onto the 5th republic, half party is now bigger than the Republicans. It's also bigger than any of the individual parties that make up menus coalition if you take the socialists or the greens, her party is bigger than each of those as well. So I think what we've learned from these results is that France really is now divided into three blocks in its political composition. It's got the center block, which is around Emmanuel Macron. It's got a left wing alliance or our melon, and it's got the far right alliance around marine le pen. And so what will that mean when it comes to actually governing for mister Macron? Well, it's going to be extremely difficult for him. There are really only two things that he can do. One is to try to form a coalition with any other party. Now that looks extremely difficult. We've already heard from the Republicans last night that they're not interested. They consider themselves to be a party of opposition. They would theoretically be able to supply the number of states he needs for a majority, but they're not interested. And in any case, even if they were, that would really shift Macron's position to the right, the sort of concessions he'd have to make in that kind of a coalition deal. Now, if he doesn't do that, the more likely outcome is to govern as a minority and that's going to be hard, it needs fighting for votes on every single piece of legislation that goes through parliament. In the past, France has known this before back in the 1980s, Michel roger, who was a socialist prime minister under Michel. He did govern as a minority, but he had available to him a constitutional provision which doesn't exist anymore and it enables him regularly, in fact, he did use this 28 times to bypass parliament effectively. So Macron won't have that, the rules have been changed. It will be difficult. And that's why I think we're looking at a pretty turbulent time for his second term in office. So why do you think there has been such a surprising result here? What's changed since the presidential election, which looked frankly much more straightforward by the numbers? Well, I think your one has to remember that the presidential election ended in a runoff between Emmanuel Macron and marine le pen. So we were already very aware of the strength of the extremes and French politics that run off he won it, he won it fairly convincingly, but nonetheless, both marine le pen, who came in second place and Jean Luc Mellon, who came in third and failed to get to that runoff in the presidential election. Their strength in France has been evident for a while, and I think one of the points that the French voters will have been making in this election was that they do want to curb with the presidential power. They don't want Macron to have a free rein to do everything. So in a sense there was almost a sort of vote of sanction there against him saying, okay, we've reelected you, but we don't want you to just sort of act as a bulldozer and impose your will on answer to all moments going forward. But I think Emmanuel Macron didn't help himself by taking a long time to name it a new prime minister. He didn't seem to campaign or give this election much of a sort of impetus. I think that was seen as complacency by many people who felt that he was probably expecting a majority to just be handed to him and that wasn't the way that in the end the French wanted to respond to him. And so what happens next? What's to look out for to get a read on how mister Macron will work with the hand he's been dealt. But I think the first question is whether he keeps his prime minister Elizabeth Bond. She was elected to parliament for the first time last night in Normandy. So she doesn't have to resign, but he may decide that he needs to do something drastic. And then there will be a number of ministers who are going to have to resign if they haven't done already. Any of the ministers who are standing for election or who lost their seats. So we're looking at a change of government possible change of prime minister and after that, just an awful lot of talking to of all the different potential allies and there aren't very many of them to be honest. They could be dissidents on the left, they could be Republicans on the right, but I think.

"News. Emmanuel Macron loses majority in shocking French election result. January 6th committee sets its sights on Mike Pence and Ginny Thomas. And Apple retail staff in Maryland face hurdles after vote to unionize. It's Monday, June 20. I'm Anthony Davis. French president Emmanuel Macron's centrist alliance has lost its majority despite getting the most seats in the final round of parliamentary elections on Sunday, while the far right national rally appeared to have made big gains. The projections say Macron's candidates would win far less than the 289 required to have a straight majority at the National Assembly, France's most powerful House of parliament. The situation which is highly unusual in France is expected to make Macron's political maneuvering difficult if the projections are borne out. A new coalition made up of the hard left, the socialists and the greens is expected to become the main opposition force with about a 140 to a 160 seats. The national rally is projected to register a huge surge with potentially more than 80 seats up from just 8 before. Polling was held nationwide to select the 577 members of the National Assembly. Prime minister Elizabeth Bourne said the unprecedented situation is a risk to our country faced with challenges at the national level, as well as at the international scale. Born who herself won a seat in western France suggested Macron's centrist alliance will seek to get support from lawmakers from diverse political forces to find good compromises. The national rallies leader marine le pen who lost to Macron in the presidential election was reelected as an MP in her stronghold in henin Beaumont in northern France. The Macron adventure has reached its end le pen said the group of national rally lawmakers will be by far the biggest of the history of our political family. Macron's government will still have the ability to rule, but only by bargaining with legislators. The centrists could try to negotiate on a case by case basis with lawmakers from the center left and from the Conservative Party when the goal of preventing opposition lawmakers from being numerous enough to reject the proposed measures. Members of the House committee investigating the insurrection at the U.S. capitol said on Sunday they may subpoena former vice president Mike Pence and awaiting to hear from Virginia Ginny Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas about her role in the illegal plot to overturn the 2020 election. Lawmakers indicated they will release more evidence about Donald Trump's efforts to defraud supporters by fundraising of false claims of a stolen presidential election. They also pledged to provide pertinent material to the Justice Department by the end of the month for its criminal investigation. The department complained in a letter last week that the committee was complicating its investigation by not sharing transcripts from its 1000 interviews. For example, the committee has been able to document most of Trump's end of his call to Pence on the morning of the insurrection on January 6th, 2021, when the then president made his final plea for Pence to stop the certification of Joe Biden's victory when Pence presided over the Electoral College count in Congress. Members have not yet documented directly what Pence said in response. Committee members also hope to learn more about Ginny Thomas own effort to keep Trump in office and the potential conflicts of interest posed on her husband as a result of January 6 cases that come before the Supreme Court. Republican state representative rusty Bowers, the Arizona House speaker, is scheduled to testify at the committee's hearing tomorrow, focusing on state officials who are contacted by Trump and The White House as Trump tried to overturn the results. Bowers is likely to be asked about the emails he received from Thomas, urging him and other state officials to set aside Biden's 2020 win and choose their own set of electors. An historic vote by employees of a Maryland Apple store to unionize the first for the technology giant is a significant step in a lengthy process that labor experts say is heavily stacked against workers in favor of their employers. Apple store employees in a Baltimore suburb voted to unionize by a nearly two to one margin on Saturday, joining a growing push across U.S. retail service and tech industries to organize for greater workplace protections. It's not yet clear whether the recent wave of unionization represent a broader shift in U.S. labor, but experts say the current shortage of workers for hourly and low wage jobs means employees have more power than they had historically, especially when unemployment is low. The Apple retail workers in Taos and Maryland voted 65 to 33 to seek entry into the international association of machinists and aerospace workers, the unions announcement said. The national labor relations board now has to certify the outcome. Once the vote is certified, the union and apple can begin negotiating a contract. Labor law in the United States is a long process, and so the fact that a single store negotiates or elects a union doesn't mean there is a negotiated contract in the workplace. For instance, Apple could say it doesn't believe that the bargaining unit certified by the NLRB is.

"Emmanuel Macron made history again last night. We are going to choose mercy. He became the first sitting French president in two decades to be reelected, winning out over the far right candidate marine le pen by 58 and a half percent to 41 and a half percent. His supporters who gathered near the Eiffel Tower for an election night party sounded overjoyed. His detractors both in Paris and Lyon weren't so happy. They gathered before the vote to protest, and after mister Macron's win had to be dispersed with tear gas. Not far from mister Macron's celebrations, supporters of Marie le pen voiced their disappointment with the outcome. At her election night gathering miss le pen vowed to continue in her fight. And made much of the fact that she'd improved upon her 2017 performance when she'd got just 34% of the vote. Victor. She then led her supporters in a rendition of the national anthem. Elsewhere, it was a grand release of tension for those who had worried about a populist upset akin to Brexit or the election of Donald Trump. In this 9th and final installment of our French election series, we're asking what mister Macron's victory means for France and for would be populist challengers elsewhere. Macron chose to hold his election rally last night at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, which was the spectacular backdrop. But I didn't feel that the mood was really ecstatic. Sophie Petter is The Economist's Paris bureau chief. When the result was projected onto the giant screen which had been set up next to the stage where they were expecting Macron to come and talk and he turned up later that evening, there was just a sort of sigh of relief. It wasn't jubilation. It was relief. So as you say, a sigh of relief then for him for his supporters for the people who worked on our election forecast model, which basically predicted this results. But the margin of the win was even narrower than it was in 2017. What does it mean for you that miss le pen came that much closer to winning? Well, I think it does show that France is a very divided country. And this was the case in 2017 when Macron was elected. But it's even more so in a way now when you see that the vote for the extremes or the radical populist candidates in has actually increased on his watch. And I think that, you know, we've seen that during this series, we've talked to people in all sorts of parts of France. You feel disenfranchised, you feel that they've been left behind by the economy by the way in which the system works. And I think that sort of fractured country is going to be one of Macron's biggest challenges going into the next second term. I mean, that's the other point to make is that the appeal of populism on the rise everywhere, you know, from America to Hungary to Poland and it's very difficult for a centrist liberal democratic politician trying to dent that appeal. And I think what we've seen in France is that you can have a really quite decent track record on jobs on incomes on managing the pandemic and still it's not enough to stop the forces of populism rising. And so is it your sense that she is gathering up the votes of the disaffected in France and that that will continue? Will we see this again in 5 years time? I don't think marine le pen will be the only champion of the sort of disenfranchised or the disaffected over the next 5 years. I think she will be one of them, but what we have seen is that it is nonetheless a very fragmented political picture in France, Macron has created this huge centrist church in the middle of French politics and has, in many ways, pushed out to the extremes all opposition to him and it's not just marine le pen although she will clearly be a figure in that opposition. And what about levels of engagement though, the turnout in this election was 72% that's fairly low by French standards anyway and lower than 2017. And what I found when we were reporting for this series in France was a tremendous amount of apathy. There were just a lot of voters who fell to sounded disengaged. No, I'm not. No, just actually I'm just waiting for a duplicate because. Why do you suppose that is? Why are there so few people who are willing to say I feel for this candidate very strongly? Well, I think that one issue, this time and that particularly was the case with the second round voters that it was the same choice all over again. Now, I mean, the French were the ones who made that choice that they had 12 candidates, and they put the same two in the runoff. But there was a sense of deja vu, there was a sense that the system is very frustrating for those who didn't back either of the runoff candidates. And so I think that feeling that there was nothing new here that it was the same choice that didn't help. But I think there's a sort of bigger picture going on and that's something to do with people feeling that representative democracy just isn't quite working for them in the way that it perhaps did in the past. There's a sense, I think, among those who le pen, she calls them the forgotten, it's the sort of feeling that the politics that the political system that political parties don't represent ordinary people in some way as they used to. And I think that that has put people off from voting and from taking part. And we saw that in the turnout. Partly at the first round of the French election, but in particular at the second round. And given that fraction of the electorate that feels left behind that they've just had a rerun of an election and the candidate whose staked out a big fat center of the country's politics, but is largely unloved again gets in office. Is that.

"This morning because French president Emmanuel Macron is heading for a second term after defeating nationalist leader marine le pen in yesterday's runoff Now Macron gets another 5 years to convince French voters his pro business pro Europe vision will work for them Let's get more now joining us live from Paris Bloomberg's Caroline kono Caroline good to have you with us this morning and look at the results beat le pen by a 17 point margin to this American size that looks like a landslide but we got kind of a somber victory speech from last night What's the takeaway There was a huge relief on the shonda mass at the feet of the Eiffel Tower last night where Emmanuel Macron considered his victory for this second Monday for another 5 years but clearly it was not the same loan slide victory that we had back in 2017 at the time he had one with 66% of the votes against that same national value leader marine le pen last night He only won with 58% of the votes So clearly the margin was not as wide meaning that there is a large proportion of the French who felt left behind who felt like he hasn't really dealt with their daily issues when it comes for example to energy inflation the issue of the cost of living or even their concerns about immigration or Europe So clearly this is something that Emmanuel Macron will have to address in his next mandate And there is a sense of responsibility here because last night he said I will address all the French including those who voted for me only to block mine in Japan and including those who are voted for the extreme I am comfortable for what happened because he knows that he will be held accountable if an anti establishment far left or far right candidate gets to power next time in 2027 And it sounds Karolina as though that sort of sets up where the next round of voting is going to happen in just a couple of months here with parliamentary elections How is now president Macron setting the stakes for the parliamentary vote that's coming up Just in a few weeks here This is what everybody calls the third round of these presidential elections meaning the parliamentary elections happening mid June in France because even though Macron got clear majority last time around 5 years ago it may be more difficult this time is a party republic on the move has performed poorly in previous local cities and regional elections over the past couple of years And clearly those who voted against him in this presidential election from the far right of the far left will clearly try and get to majority in order to prevent Emmanuel Macron from really doing the policies he wants to implement over this next 5 years For example Jean Luc melon showing this left candidate who came third in the first round with about 22% of the French votes actually said last night the third one starts tonight He called the French to vote for him In order to get a majority in parliament because if that happens that means Emmanuel Macron will be forced to choose a prime minister which is different from his party And that will actually make it very difficult for him to really govern So the politics continue in France Thanks for this Caroline good having you on with us Caroline Cohen on Bloomberg Paris correspondent joining us from Paris this morning Karen All right Nathan thank you It is 5.

"France's Emmanuel Macron wins second term as president. Top level U.S. delegation meets zelensky in Ukraine. And climate change brings multiple wildfires in New Mexico. It's Monday, April 25. I'm Anthony Davis. Emmanuel Macron won a second term as French president on Sunday, triggering relief among allies that the nuclear armed power won't abruptly shift course in the midst of the war in Ukraine, from European Union and NATO efforts to punish and contain Russia's military expansionism. The second 5 year term for the 44 year old liberal centrist spared France and Europe from the seismic upheaval of having far right populist marine le pen at the helm, Macron's presidential runoff challenger, who quickly conceded defeat, but still scored her best ever electoral showing. Acknowledging that numerous voters cast ballots for him simply to keep out the fiercely nationalist le pen, Macron pledged to reunite the country that is filled with so many doubts, so many divisions, and work to assuage the anger of French voters that fed le pen's campaign. Le pen pledged to dilute French ties with the 27 nation EU, NATO and Germany moves that would have shaken Europe's security architecture as the continent deals with its worst conflict since World War II. Le pen also spoke against EU sanctions on Russian energy supplies and faced scrutiny during the campaign over her previous friendliness with the Kremlin. A chorus of European leaders hailed Macron's victory since France has played a leading role in international efforts to punish Russia with sanctions and is supplying weapons to Ukraine. Democracy wins Europe wins, said Spanish prime minister Pedro Sanchez. Macron won with 58.5% of the vote to le pen's 41.5%, significantly closer than when they first faced off in 2017. Macron is the first French president in 20 years to win reelection, since incumbent Jacques chirac, trounced le pen's father in 2002. The U.S. secretaries of state and defense met on Sunday Night with Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky in the highest level visit to the country's capital by an American delegation since the start of Russia's invasion. The meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and U.S. defense secretary Lloyd Austin, which was confirmed by a senior Ukrainian official, came as Ukraine pressed the west for more powerful weapons against Russia's campaign in the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine, where Moscow's forces sought to dislodge the last Ukrainian troops in the battered port of mariupol, before the session, zelensky said he was looking for the Americans to produce results, both in arms and security guarantees. You can't just come to us empty handed today, and we are expecting not just presents or some kind of cakes. We are expecting specific things and specific weapons, he said. Zelensky's last face to face meeting with a top U.S. official was on the 19th of February in Munich with vice president Kamala Harris, 5 days before Russia's invasion. While the west has funneled military equipment to Ukraine, zelensky has stressed repeatedly that his country needs more heavy weapons, including long-range air defense systems and warplanes. The governor of New Mexico, Michelle Grisham, has signed emergency declarations as 20 wildfires continued to burn on Sunday in nearly half of the state's drought stricken 33 counties, one wildfire in northern New Mexico that started on the 6th of April merged with a newer fire on Saturday to form the largest blaze in the state, leading to widespread evacuations in Mora and San Miguel counties. That fire was 84 square miles on Sunday and just 12% contained. An uncontained wind driven wildfire in northern New Mexico that began on April 17 had charred 81 square miles of ponderosa pine, oak brush and grass by Sunday morning at an unincorporated community in more county. Meanwhile, in Arizona, some residents forced to evacuate due to wildfire near Flagstaff, were allowed to return home yesterday morning in Nebraska, authorities said wind driven wildfires sweeping through parts of that state killed a retired Cambridge fire chief and injured at least 11 firefighters. Wind and temperatures in New Mexico diminished Saturday, but remained strong enough to still fan fires, dozens of evacuation orders remained in place. More than 200 structures had been charred by the wildfires so far, and an additional 900 remained threatened Grisham said. Fire management officials said an exact damage count was unclear because it's still too dangerous for crews to go in and look at all the homes that have been lost. Some 1000 firefighters were battling the wildfires across New Mexico, which already has secured about $3 million in grants to help with the fires. Grisham said she had asked The White House for more federal resources and she's calling for a ban of fireworks statewide. Wildfire has become a year round threat in the west, given changing conditions that include earlier snow melt and rain coming later in the fall scientists have said. The problems have been exacerbated by decades of fire suppression and poor management along with a more than 20 year mega drought that studies linked to human caused climate change.

the final round of the French election on April 24th just like in 2017 joining us from Paris now is Bloomberg's all over crook Oliver especially for international audience If you could walk through the results because the polls that I saw basically a lot of the commentary was okay if Macron gets over 25% it's all clear from him And he did indeed get that But there does seem to be this back and forth that perhaps it's not exactly a straight line for him to the presidency That's right Danny There's a degree to which it seems like it was a little bit kind of according to kind of anticipation You know in mind you're in my home versus the nationalist 9 to ten or a kind of rematch of 2017 My homecoming in a 27% which is a bit higher than I think a lot of people anticipated the pen at 24% and then mineral showing the far left over a 21% And so you look at the polls that were taken immediately after this you know in the average of three polls see him still leading by about 8 points But then there was another one that had him leading by only two And that's well within the margin of error And I think that the real question is if we've seen anything we've done anything from this campaign so far is actually a lot can change in a relatively short period of time It was seen as a slam dunk shoo in for my cone just a couple of weeks ago and then that kind of gab began to narrow And I think that that's what we're going to see in the next couple of weeks In terms of the other candidates they move through his way behind le pen predictably he's sort of on the far right And then the others however and this is kind of where it gets interesting I'll show him the far left candidate Again about 20% of the vote did not support my call but said basically you need to do what you can to stop le pen And you heard that echoed overthrow him in a couple of other candidates You had also the elite cuss And the green leader janik is both with 5% calling for their supporters to vote for the pen So that's sort of the lay of the land going into round two April 24th What does it mean all over that we did see some of these far left and of course marine le pen far right candidates get such a sizable amount of support from the electorate Well I think there's a little bit.

"macron" Discussed on Heartland Newsfeed Radio Network
"As far as people people who've been vaccinated incidentally mississippi does seem to be the lowest senator of the seventy that means. That's part of that is kids that That's the saddest part for me that the that the one part of our popular one segment of our population. That doesn't need to come anywhere near this nonsense. And here they are trying to push to get the way down to what six year olds now. According to spare pitch keep in mind. People always say to yourself every time they are literally beira mental unapproved vaccine. That is being experiment on you. The biden administration intends to have mobile carriers blocked text messages that could be spreading misinformation not incorrectly. Block them or respond to them. I don't know. I think they want to censor them. They want to they want. It's anything they're going to. They're going to have a little. There's going to be a little block at the bottom of your tech saying this is if you need more cove nineteen information. Please click this button. Like facebook is doing and what platform. They can't do that. If you're using signal then m your recipient is used a signal that your messages are encrypted and your sms provider cannot read them. What about telegram. You're pretty safe there too. Yeah but i would recommend signal telegram. You telegram has a sort of social media network aspect to it as well. That signal doesn't so they're two different. Animals has groups to the problem with this though. Don't you only extremists you signal. Well everyone. That's what they're gonna say. Everyone else uses facebook. Messenger that crap off your phone people. That would a piece of garbage get that off. Get that app off your phone. Don't use it. were there people. There that are objecting to secession. No not very many they. They did a a hand raising and i couldn't. I didn't think anyone failed to raise their hand when they asked which people. Which have you our favorite in favor of it. You know pretty much. Raise their hands and dave. I know you follow this. You're one of the fans of the nhc free or any out of us kind of movements any exit. I think you might have been calling it recently. What's the status of this. Are there any state reps. Who are willing to kind of take up the mantle. Take up the issue and and put something forward or are they all still to chicken Caleb dire started crafting legislation a few years ago and didn't didn't submit it He's a state rep. My what i want. What i'm advocating for is that a bill will be submitted that lets people vote but the taxpayers must be reimbursed for the cost of having to bill hurt so i will not ask for a bill. I'm not gonna call it the state rep and asked to submit a bill at taxpayer expense. Unless i'm willing to fund the two thousand dollars it costs to to do that. I don't have the money so it costs two thousand dollars to get a bill read. I didn't even know that. Yeah but i could. If i wanted to. I could just pick up the phone and call probably ten reps or so and one of them would say yeah. I'll do that. Also that and submit something similar to what they've got in texas where they have a piece of legislation that came before committee. At least let's finally get into what macron or mccrone however you pronounce. It is what they're trying to do in france. I suspect they're doing it. I don't think they're just trying. But the story here. From variety dot com. French president emmanuel macron has announced new health rules to contain the spread of the delta variant of covid nineteen. The country is currently hosting he. Cannes film festival with thousands of guests from around the world. The key measure announced by macron will make the e u. digital covid certificates commonly called the health. Pass mandatory in cultural venues. So they already have the health pass. Yes and i have another story about the health. Passage sort of briefly goes over what it is and how widespread it's going to be twenty one out of the twenty. Seven nations are already connected to the network and six more are technically ready so all twenty seven of the eu nations are expected to be on board with this health. Pass as of Effectively there if you're in europe you're going to be stuck there if you don't get out now and you don't want to get vaccinated. Yeah i don't know if they're going to let you leave. That's a good question france and they're they're restricting travel. Right they are. Yeah and i'll get into what the health past does here. As far as there may be a way around getting vaccinated. You might be able to show that you've taken a test or the your immune or like some other options. Your health isn't any of the government's business. I mean there are literally laws on the books at least in the united states saying that your health is between you and your doctor well. That's changing gradual implementation. Period is in place with a grace period running until august twelfth for those few countries that are not yet ready. As of july first during this period other states should accept national documents on the condition they contain data required at european level. The launch comes under the cloud of the delta variants which then go on some fearmongering there. How does it work. The entire phrase is fearmongering. There's no way this is the fourth variant of covid nineteen. Just just think back of the new stories that we've covered over the last sixteen seventeen months. There have been many variants. i've heard of other ones. There's no way this is only the fourth no. There's there've been other obama and whatever they gave it the scariest name they could the delta very brave new frayed brave new world so the vaccine passports or the e. u. d. c. consists of information about the individuals vaccination status test results recovery status from covid nineteen presented as a qr code. The traveler can choose to carry either a digital or paper certificate and the u. You digital covid certificate you d. C is officially known is free and should be recognized by all twenty seven. Eu countries as well switzerland lichenstein iceland norway so covid recovery and stuff like that so if you had covid nineteen do you still get the the health pass or whatever you can get the health pass in three situations whether you have been vaccinated against covid. Nineteen if you've had a recent negative test or if you're considered immune having previously contracted the disease and biden is calling for hiring more. Police cracking down on illegal guns to combat crime. Now this is another one of those those guns. This is another one of those things like with covid. Nineteen you said. If the media hadn't fearmongers would any of us had known that covid nineteen was even thing and the answer is no anyone would anybody. Who's out there listening. Would you could you. Would you tell me that violent crime is up this year. Or it's down. That's exactly what i was watching here. Exactly if you watch the news you would think that the world was about was on fire as we speak. The whole cities are burning down as we well. That's actually happening. Apparently in south africa and people are all. Yeah this country. No not here. You i mean on the fourth of july. I don't remember what i guess. It was probably fox news. They ran an article saying that. Oh there were disproportionate amount of shootings this weekend. For the fourth of july weekend it was a bloodbath and it turned out to be that there were one hundred shootings in chicago over the weekend. Which is bad. But it's normal. It's about normal for chicago. It may be a little bit like fifty sixty a day. Are we are. I'm sorry a weekend but this is different. People are out there. I mean. I don't know what their average death rate is but it wasn't it wasn't terribly unusual. But that's what we're hearing from. The media right now is that there's this violent crime rate a spree.
