A media blackout in France led journos to other European media, where the election was called early for Macron.
There's still a media blackout in France, but not Belgium, where a Brussels daily is calling the election for Macron. Polls close at 8pm. https://t.co/b1mHvIJAto

Allahu Le Akbar.
France just committed suicide.
The great worry for the rest of us is France’s nuclear arsenal felling into the hands of the islamists who will one day control it.
You can say that again.
Sorry I was wrong. That can only be said once.
Interesting contrasting comments on this article.
Can’t help but wonder…….
How many illegal alien votes and dead people’s votes did Macron get?
You made me chuckle Allahu Le Akbar, but the nukes wiped the smile off my face
Surrendering frogs, take massive dump on France.
Methinks the Brits have always had the Froggies figured out correctly all along – down through history………………
Now we know: France has decided to become an integral part of the New Caliphate! Islamic Supremacist sympathizer and enabler Emmanuel Macron has won the French Presidential election, leaving little doubt that he will continue his Quisling-like behavior regarding Muslim immigrants; remember, he is the person that actually threatened Poland regarding their decision to bar Muslim immigration into their country.
It appears we can write off France as a part of Europe, and designate it the first official country in Eurabia!
Regrettable, that this society has chosen suicide.
Not sure there was a good choice in this election. Le Pen’s economic ideas are incoherent, to say the least, and while she’s anti-Islamist she never convinced me she wasn’t also anti-Jewish. Is Macron any better on the economic front? A “centrist” in Europe, remember, is hard-left here. France has been committing suicide for some decades; it didn’t take this election to do it.
One can hope Macron will wake up and see the Islamist threat. A faint hope, probably.
1400 years ago an invasion like this would have been turned back with swords and horse mounted troops – political correctness wasn’t even a concept. Today, in our ‘modern’ society, we’ve become so flaccid that all the ‘refugee’ needs is a completed form and the acceptance is granted.
The invasion prospers, not because of the Islamic fanatics, but because of societies response. Islam has always been fanatical…it’s the response that has changed.
Just wait until the muslims declare wine to be haram.
I do feel for the 35% who recognized the danger and voted Le Pen. Do they get out now? Stay and fight? Tough for them.
Now all of Europe is in danger.
Okay, so Marcon won. He has no party to back him. He has no seats in their parliament. The national assembly can feel free to ignore him which will make him dissolve the lower house with no guarantees he’ll get lawmakers more sympathetic to his position since… he has no party to back him. He’s a figurehead with very limited power.
Personally, I am looking forward to LePen’s response in the next few weeks. Will she blame the Russians? Will she blame sexism? Will she #Resist?
If France is lucky LePen will crawl back under her rock.
When you consider that the current French rulers have invited in millions of foreign Muslim barbarians it’s just common sense that some put a stop to this disaster. Otherwise France will disappear like The Roman Empire.
Decisions have been made over centuries. The French aristocrats were abusive and the French Revolution had seeds sown by those abuses. I suspect the elites leading that revolution hijacked it with anti-Church sentiments. The metric system went so far as to have 10-day weeks. Didn’t fly. But France has had a tradition of promoting secularism. The Church, as in Catholic Church, has been ridiculed and mocked endlessly. However, people do want to believe, and if the Church is not there, will believe in something else. Secularism, nihilism, and the like are weak-sauce for religious beliefs. France is merely reaping the seeds sown so long ago. The Muslims are believers. Sort of like the Bolsheviks, who were a small faction of the smallest party in Russia. Or like our chances of finding “moderate” Muslims in Syria is nil because moderates don’t jump off the sofa with a gun. The nothingness of secular France is being replaced.
Who was it who observed that ‘If you don’t like the Christian Right you really are not going to like the post-Christian Right.’
Tom Kratman’s novel becomes closer to reality.
Which European country is next up for suicide?
As Gen. Honoree said “You can’t fix stupid”, this election proves him right. The last intelligent Frenchman was Charles Martel who repelled the muslim invasion of France in 732 AD, and saved Europe as we know it. Where are you now Mr. Martel when the world needs you?
Europe is doomed. It appears that the only question remaining is how quickly they are going to march into the abyss.
