Before we start applauding this sudden attack of testicular fortitude and comparing Hollande's defence of French sovereignty against the Muslim (allegedly)conqueror to the stand of brave Roland and his twelve companions at Roncesvalles (I'd bet that will send a few readers rushing off to Google or Wikipedia,) we should remember the current socialist government is already the most unpopular France has ever had and the President knows that to give away French sovereignty to US Corporate businesses would be political suicide.
France’s President Hollande Says 'Non' To Obama’s Demand for Corporate Global Oligarchy
Trade Treaties Fast Track Not A Done Deal, The People Will Stop It
The fast tracking of two trade treaties, TTIP and TPP that the corporate gofor, President Barack Hussein Obama, is pushing in the hope that the deals, will enable him to complete the task he was shoehorned into office for by transferring control of national laws from elected governments to corporate lawyers, looks to be stalling.
US Free Trade Treaty Really Unites Left and Right The utterly discredited administration of the USA's rent-boy President is still hoping to slavage something from the wreckage of the first black President's two terms in office by making securing some sort of a political legacy for him. If they succeed he will go down in history as the man who destroyed three thousand years of democracy and handed the developed world to corporate fascists.
This is why the pernicious anything-but-free trade treaties are being pushed so hard, these treaties will give corporate businesses the ability to sue governments and overturn national law.
It may turn out however that the legacy of the most money-friendly President ever will not be quite what is hoped for. The trade treaties (which you can learn more about in the posts on THIS PAGE may be the cause that reunites left and right in defence of national sovereignty against the onslaught of globalism and cultural Marxism.
Sweden's shaky politically correct consensus ruling coalition could be the first major victory as the hard line socialists of the Left Party find common cause with the extreme right Sweden Democrats to protect Swedish business (and Swedish jobs) from the suffocating embrace of American corporatism:

The leader of Sweden's Left Party Jonas Sjöstedt, unleashed an attack on the government of Prime Minister Stefan Löfven in an interview with Sweden's Expressen newspaper. The wording is a sign that the last-minute deal struck last month with Sweden's right-wing alliance, while it prevented an emergency election, is causing strains with the the Social Democrats' traditional left-wing allies.
In his attack, Sjöstedt issued a stark warning that if the red-green coalition failed to stick to a deal struck last year to limit the extent to which private companies can profit from providing state services, it would no longer be able to count on his party's support.
"If they betray us on the profit agreement, they can forget about negotiating a budget with us,” he said in the interview. "I don't think I can be any clearer than that.”
He criticised the negotiating stance Sweden had taken in December's climate change talks in Paris.
"The government is a huge disappointment in terms of its work for the climate, the goals it has for climate change, and how it acts in the European Union," he said, before laying into its support for the controversial Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) with the US.
"The government has chickened out," he said of the deal. "You should say 'no' to an agreement which means that companies can sue countries."
(Under the terms of TTIP, revealed only in leaked documents as the deal has been negotiated between US and EU bureaucrats in conditions of total secrecy - 'nuff said - the profit deal Sjöstedt was eager to protect would be one of the first targets for American corporate lawyers.)
More to come on this, we are sure.

Regulatory Cooperation’ and TTIP: Opening The Floodgates For Corporate PlunderA new leak concerning the talks around the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) indicates that the floodgates could be opened even further for corporate influence. The leak has been analysed by the corporate watchdogs CEO and LobbyControl and shows that corporate influence on EU and US policies might dramatically increase via the chapter on so-called ‘regulatory cooperation’.
