The biometric app, which is tied to digital ID movements across Europe, was signed off in a decree by Prime Minister Jean Castex and Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin on Tuesday. The app will allow users to scan their physical identity card and it will be uploaded to be used to access public or private services.

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
