Freemasons Cast a Long Shadow on the Elysee Palace
Candidates of the Greens and the Extreme Left Are Freemasons
Two French Presidential candidates of the second rank are self-described Freemasons: Jean-Luc Melenchon, candidate of the extreme-left is a member of the Grand Orient of France; Corinne Lepage of the Greens, wife of the former Minister for Environment and CIU-associate Christian Huglo, belongs to the Ladies Grand Lodge.
Disregarding the clear connections between radical and extreme leftists in the Freemasonic network, it is clearly interesting that Le Point counts 13 Freemasons in the election entourage of Nicolas Sarkozy including François Baroin, Labour Minister Xavier Bertrand, Defense Minister Gérard Longuet, Minister of the Interior Claude Guéant, Justice Minister Michel Mercier, Minister of Sports David Douillet, Minister for Relations with Parlament Patrick Ollier, the Minister for the International Cooperation Henri de Raincourt and Education Minister Luc Chatel.
Sarkozy's Freemasonic Friends
The latter two ministries were in the history of the French republic entrusted almost all Freemasons. Corresponding significance of membership in a lodge in a total staff of officials of these ministries and the French state schools. Prime Minister Francois Fillon, not even a Freemason appears in Sarkozy's cabinet, however, represent an exception. The Government of the French President could be aptly described as a large box. Many of the ministers are close to the mysterious CIU. This does not mean that this is consistent with the direction of the majority of French Freemasonry, the Grand Orient. Sarkozy himself is closely connected with Alain Bauer. The well-known criminologist, son of Georg Bauer and Monika Ejzenberg who survived the persecution of Jews in the East, was Grand Master of the Grand Orient of France. Since his youth was a member of the Socialist Party of Sarkozy Bauer was entrusted with important tasks. Le Point also know suggests that it was amazing, at least for someone who is stressed again and again to be a Freemason, that adorns some of Sarkozy's signature with three points as the "brothers" to. The correspondence as Interior Minister in the Chief of Police or the police union was "marked" by it. It is generally known in France that are all Freemasons to the leadership of the police.
The Grand Orient of France Oggles Hollande
Should the Socialist candidate Francoise Hollande win, who is has clear sympathies to the Grand Orient, would not change much from the Freemasonic point of view. In the team, who organize Hollandes election, Le Point counts ten Freemasons including the Senate president Jean-Pierre Bel, former Minister Michel Sapin and Jean-Yves Le Drian, the Mayor of Lyon Gérard Collomb and Hollande's press speaker, Manuel Valls.
Given this band of "brothers" can someone who does not trust the French Freemasonry be tempted to choose the candidate Francois Bayrou center or the right candidate Marine Le Pen. As Le Point assures us, the Lodges have also already taken steps in this regard or are busy here. Bayrou is on the side of the former Senator and Member of Auditors Alain Lambert. He belongs to the same Lodge from which the mysterious CIU has emerged. From the same back ground comes Dominique Paillé, the former spokesman of the Sarkozy's UMP party. He is not even on the entourage of Bayrou, but this was the victor in his novel "Panic in the Elysee Palace" and is considered particularly influential in the circles that support the candidate Bayrou.
Freemasons open Marine Le Pen
Marine Le Pen seems to be the only candidate for the highest state office, who is not surrounded by "brothers". In the retinue of Marine Le Pen, Le Point has identified only one single Freemason. It is Gilbert Collard. The lawyer who most frequently appeared in the French media was initiated in the Grande Loge de France, then moved to the Grande Loge Nationale Française (GLNF), which is described from Masonic point of view as "traditional" and obedience is the ground on which the CIU was created. It seems a lot of water from the Loire and Rhone has flowed since the "brothers" of the Grand Orient were threatened with expulsion in the 80s if they were members of the National Front, which was then headed by Marine Le Pen's father. Even those who were threatened, to those who dared to seek the support of the FN, or were suspected, such as former Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Soisson, defend those who sought for the second ballot the votes of FN to his position as president of the National Council of Burgundy. Maybe nothing will come of it. The Grand Orient at least seriously discussed the possibility to invite Marine Le Pen to a meeting behind closed doors, "to give her the opportunity to present the 'brothers' her program," as it has been granted before to the other presidential election candidates. The very thought would have been unthinkable a few years ago. Jean-Marie Le Pen was never offered this "privilege". Freemasonry opens Marine Le Pen, Le Pen is open Freemasonry? Le Pen's environment shows a strong resistance against it: "It would end with a crushing hug," is how it would look from the environs of the FN-Candidate.
Masons also want to retain influence after the election in 2012
The diverse landscape of France Masons has numerous differences in positions. But there are certain threads that connect them and in the end, French Freemasonry succeeds in having more political weight than in other countries in terms politics. The approximately 150,000 Masons in France seem determined to preserve their influence, in France specifically, even around the presidential elections in 2012.
