11SEP2019 – OCF Update

Looking back eighteen years to that horrifying day it’s remarkable to think of how much courage and patriotism was squandered and how the enemies of this country both domestic and foreign have capitalized on the truly awful leadership that Bush and Obama provided.  I guess I should be grateful that we didn’t end up with the trifecta by way of Hillary but the bitterness of those wasted years is discouraging.

The lesson I’ll take away from all that is never assume the war is won.  It’s never over.  Complacency is fatal.  If you are not attacking the enemy then your are retreating.  Every institution that they’ve undermined and subverted is a battle that still needs to be fought, another hill to take.  Every RINO in Congress or running for President is a roadblock to rolling back the insanity that’s been imposed.  Make sure your leaders are actually on your side.  Check their bona fides.

President Trump and the Brexit movement in England and some of the other Nationalist leaders in Italy, Poland, Hungary and elsewhere give me hope that we still have time to scramble back from the edge of the abyss and straighten out the world we will leave our children and grandchildren.  I hope it’s not too late.

I’ll continue on some practical things I can think of for people to do in their own lives with their own loved ones to avoid the damage that our culture does to us, especially the young people.  I’ll add additional parts to the “Reclaiming the Family” series.  I think that is useful.

There are fifty days left until the Halloween deadline that Boris Johnson set for Brexit.  I am very excited to see if Boris can outmaneuver his foes and either let the date pass without any extension or force a General election.  I think between Farage and Johnson they can secure an actual working majority of real conservatives to pass the Brexit and any other British legislation that’s been held captive by the Tory globalists.  I hope he gets both those results.

Well, even though today broke eighty degrees New England summer is done.  The leaves are starting to drop and the butterflies and dragonflies are retreating.  Soon fall foliage will be going on and considering my red-green color blindness the results will definitely be hit or miss.  The NY Yankees look to win the AL East division and surprisingly it looks like the Boston Red Sox and their rabid fans will be missing the playoffs this year.  New York’s pitching is barely so-so but the hitting is phenomenal.  Which means they’ll probably be knocked out in the AL Championship game.  But Camera Girl is very excited to see them play and even I have dropped my perennial cynicism and have the boys of summer on several times.  Go Yanks!

And finally I have managed to hold onto my Biden prediction.  I’m ride’n with Biden.  I think Creepy Joe will be the nominee and President Trump’s punching bag.  Blood filled eye, advanced senile dementia or even occasional bouts of priapism should not stop Joe.  He’s a man on a mission.  And when he declares Spartacus or Fauxcahantas his running mate the signs in Revelations will be consummated.

Looks to be a busy fall.  Stay tuned.

Have the English People Had Enough?

In Britain, Boris Johnson has done everything legally possible to push Brexit over the line to completion, but a large contingent his own party has shown its true colors and figuratively and literally crossed over to the enemy camp to defeat the effort.  Will the Remainers be able to forestall a General Election?  Maybe they can.  And maybe they’ll even find a way to cancel Brexit.  But the real question is, have the English had enough?  Has the open and shameless flouting of the people’s will reached the point where the English will do something about it?  You may ask what?  After all, Britain is a Constitutional Monarchy where the elected representatives of the people in Parliament are the ultimate legal authority.  Is there anything the citizens can do if the various parties conspire to defy the will of the people and refuse to allow a General Election?

There surely is.  Any Pro-Brexit voter whose MP voted against Boris Johnson this week can write and e-mail and let his MP know that when the next election finally rolls around the MP will be out on his ear and Nigel Farage will be providing a replacement under his Brexit Party banner.  And he can add that this unfortunate MP shouldn’t expect to be elected for anything higher than dog catcher for the rest of his natural life.   And he should ask his friends to send the same.   In fact, Farage should already be publishing the names of all MPs who voted against Brexit and represent districts that voted for it.  I’ll bet that should be an interesting list.  There’s nothing an elected official likes less than the prospect of having to work for a living.

And that’s just the beginning.  Call up Farage’s office and volunteer time and give money to help get publicity and public opinion rolling.  Farage can use the money to buy advertising space in the papers and news sites.  He can use the money to do research on these Remainers and identify their links to globalist interests that benefit from Brussels’ hegemony over Britain.  There’s plenty that can be done if you’re angry enough.

A good example of how this can work occurred during the US 2018 Senate Elections.  Despite the supposed mid-term doldrums that swept the Democrats into the majority in the House, the Senate races were predominantly in red states and there were at least four democrats who were incumbents in very red states.  These were targeted by the Republican Senate Campaign Committee to showcase how these senators had voted against Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court based on the lunatic charges and outright libel of a partisan hack.  And all four of these senators were ousted easily.

It’s easy to get angry and spout off about politicians.  But doing something, even something as easy as sending an e-mail, takes some willpower.  So that’s the question.  Are the English fed up with their disloyal government?  Are they ready to get up off their butts and do something?  I think they are.  And I expect they will hear from Farage very soon.  Hopefully Farage and Johnson can begin to coordinate how the coming election can be arranged between the Loyal Tories and the Brexit Party.  If they are smart, as soon as the date of the election is nailed down, they should begin a campaign to wake up the country and lay out their platform.  Let Brexit be just the beginning of reclaiming the country for its citizens.  Many Labour MPs are from districts that went heavily for Brexit.  Adding their seats to a Brexit Party constituency would begin an important realignment that is long overdue.  It would be similar to how Rust Belt Democrats crossed over to vote for Donald Trump.

I am encouraged by the determination that the English people showed in making the Brexit vote a success.  I am sure that they have the stamina to see this process through to a successful close.  It will be necessary to throw the globalists out of Parliament to finish the job but it will provide the added benefit of producing a working majority in Parliament that knows it is accountable to the voters.

 

Bravo to BoJo’s Brexit Brinksmanship

Donald Trump has reintroduced the modern world to Right Wing assertiveness.  He has ignored as “fake news” all the brow-beating that has typically paralyzed Republican politicians and gone his own way on policy matters.  He tears up old policy like NAFTA that doesn’t suit him and blazes a negotiating trail that leaves his opponents in the dust.  When President Trump called Boris Johnson, “Britain Trump,” he is hitting on something that has a basis in fact.  It’s not that the two men are highly similar in the details of their lives and philosophy.  It’s the fact that they are willing to throw the dice.  It’s their audacity.  Both men have won big by not playing it safe.

Now Boris Johnson is gambling on a grand scale.  He’s setting up a make or break scenario for himself, for his premiership, for the Tories, for the Brexit campaign and even for British independence, all on one throw of the dice.  It’s a two-stage strategy to preserve the Hard Brexit.

The first stage is to cow the Remainers from voting against Hard Brexit by threatening to oust them from the party and deselect them from running as Tories in their re-elections.  If this succeeds then Johnson’s hand is strengthened in his negotiations with the EU but, all else failing, a Hard Brexit will occur on October 31st.  But if the Remainers refuse to follow his lead on Hard Brexit then stage two is calling for a General Election.  And the audacity of this move would be Homeric.  Now Johnson is bringing into play Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party to essentially replace Remainers in both the Tory and Labour Parties in order to gain a majority in Parliament for the Brexit Movement.  That is indeed a gutsy move.  What if it fails.  Johnson would be out as PM.  The Tories would be a spent force.  Brexit would be revoked and the EU and the Remainers would reign supreme.  And even if the Brexit Party swings the majority to Pro-Brexit, who is to say that Nigel Farage will give Boris Johnson the premiership back?  It’s entirely possible that Farage could end up as Prime Minister.  After all Theresa May called for a General Election in order to strengthen her hand when she was trying to negotiate the Brexit and all it did was lose her the Tory majority she already had.  A General Election is the ultimate toss of the dice.

So, does that mean I’m saying that Boris Johnson is being rash in forcing the issue on Hard Brexit?  Hell no!

Boris has no choice.  His adversaries have rigged the game.  Much as in the United States both major parties are full of globalists who are more beholden to corporate and elitist interests than they are to the will of the people who elected them.  His only choice is to threaten these frauds with the only punishment they truly fear, namely being cast out of their lucrative, powerful government jobs that provide them with such a comfortable and privileged lifestyle to which they have become so thoroughly accustomed.  He is making them accountable to the people they allegedly represent.

So, he has no choice but throw the dice.  But that doesn’t mean he should not be greatly praised for doing it.  Think of the other allegedly conservative politicians who when confronted with choices like this surrender and follow the path the Left has goaded them toward.  Theresa May is the latest example but the list is literally endless and is prominently sprinkled with George Bushes of various middle names.

So, kudos to you Boris Johnson.  I hope the Remainers cave and make your life easy.  In fact, I actually hope you get the chance to negotiate a few of the terms of the Brexit with those geniuses in Brussels.  It would do them some good to actually start learning again what it means to treat with equals instead of dictating to the proles.  It might save them from the Grexit and the Itexit and even the Frexit.  But then again maybe they should get everything they’ve earned, with interest.

Everything You Could Ever Need to Know About Brexit

Over at the very excellent Claremont Review of Books, Christopher Caldwell has a very long article called “Why Hasn’t Brexit Happened Yet?

It’s exhaustive (and actually exhausting!) but very well written.  It gives you all the background you need to know just how desperate the globalists are to kill Brexit.  Only the truly hardcore will finish the whole article.  But I am a glutton for punishment so I did get to the end.

 

 

Conrad Black Cheerleads for Boris Johnson

Conrad had been of the opinion that Theresa May would get Brexit done.  Well that wasn’t the case.  Hopefully Boris will have much more successful career as PM.

Conrad Black: The Europeans now know they need to take Boris Johnson seriously

For Boris, outflanking the Remainers is a tricky game of brinksmanship that pits the MPs love of power versus their hatred for the Brexit.  If they attempt to sabotage the Brexit, Boris can attempt to block their ability to sit for re-election or even more drastically, trigger a General Election that can have disastrous results for these MPs who have gone against the wishes of their constituents.  What Johnson risks is triggering a bloodbath as the public supports the Brexit Party at the expense of Labour and the Tories.  Sharing power with Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party wouldn’t please Boris all that much either so it’s a bold threat to use.

 

Boris Johnson Shows Some Spunk

So BoJo is actually serious about getting Brexit done.  Bravo!  This is just the type of definite action that needs to be applied against the Leftists and Globalists and Elitists everywhere and all the time.  Catch them flat footed and keep them off balance.  Don’t telegraph your blows, surprise them.  Use the advantages the system gives you and take the ball out of their hands.  Bravo.

Will they figure a way to stop him?  Maybe.  They may combine Labor and the Tory Remainers and vote no confidence.  Fine, let them.  Then the Brexit Party will compete against all the Remainers and the Labor districts and spare the Tory Brexiteers and the coalition of the Tory and Brexit parties will be plenty big enough to get Brexit done right.

Once Brexit is complete, the British have a chance to decide what their priorities are.  Maybe they want to be socialists.  Who knows?  But at least they’ll be able to decide for themselves instead of being led around by the nose by Brussels.  Even socialists have some pride.

I am interested to see whether President Trump can manage to come up with a trade package that can help both Britain and us.  I don’t know the details of the EU trade agreements with the US but it’s a cinch that improvements can be worked out.  And the leverage we can provide to Britain may help them to strike a better deal with the EU after a hard Brexit occurs.

And finally, Brexit may be the first domino that finally topples the whole European project.  The Italians, the Greeks, the Poles, the Hungarians and other states are chafing under the constant scolding and austerity browbeating that the Germans hand out along with their loans.  It would be wonderful if these debt slaves broke their bonds and escaped the EU plantation.

So keep up the good work Boris.  We’re all cheering British Trump and hope he rescues his country from their Globalist traitors.  Get it done by Halloween.

 

Boris Lowers the Boom

Boris Johnson is going to get the Queen to suspend Parliament to force the opposition to either push for a no-confidence vote or drop their attempts to block his Brexit strategy.  With the suspension ending just two weeks before the October 31st deadline this will limit what the Remainers have time to cook up to block a hard Brexit.

It’s a gutsy move.  If a general election is called chances are the Brexit Party will win a huge victory and probably will assure a hard Brexit happens but it would also sink Johnson’s own Tories.  I think he’s betting that the cowardly Remainers will prefer to hold onto their seats rather than get their way on Brexit.

 

Boris Johnson Now the Heavy Favorite for Next UK PM

Boris came out of the first round of internal voting way ahead of all the other candidates.  His total was actually more than the totals of the next three highest candidates combined (114 vs 43, 37, 27).  The next round may make it all but inevitable that after 22JUL2019 when the voting finishes he will be selected to be the next PM.

Now that doesn’t mean that Brexit is guaranteed.  The Remainers are the British version of the Republican Globalists who would rather see the US middle class starve than threaten their cozy relationship with Davros.

But it will be a good first step.

 

After you’ve read enough sexbot articles on Drudge maybe switch to something interesting

Farage and Trump

President Trump is scheduled to spend four days (June Third through Sixth) in Britain to commemorate the seventy fifth anniversary of D-Day.  Queen Elizabeth will throw a state banquet at which all the parliamentary leaders will attend.  But the real meeting that everyone is interested in is not supposed to happen.  Prime Minister May has uninvited conservative gadfly Nigel Farage to Buckingham Palace and so the only way that the meeting will happen is through Trump’s and Farage’s own organizations setting it up.  How ironic is that?  The two leaders who demonstrably represent the will of the common people of their respective nations have to constantly battle against the elitists in their own parties to achieve any part of the agenda the people have mandated they accomplish.

Nowhere is this clearer than in the refusal of the Tory leadership to honor the Brexit vote.  The people of the United Kingdom voted unequivocally to leave the European Union.  But here we are three years later and nothing has been accomplished.  The Tories under Theresa May’s inept leadership have botched the Brexit effort and at this point the Remainers in their ranks are poised to prevent Brexit, even though it will doom the Tories’ majority in Parliament, leaving the Left to run the country.

But jumping into the fray is Nigel Farage.  He was the moving spirit behind the original Brexit movement but after its passage he dropped out of the public eye.  But three years of dithering by the Tories was too much for him.  Only six weeks before the British EU parliamentary elections he formed a new party called (of course) the Brexit Party and won more seats than the Tories and Labor combined.  Using this victory as a second Brexit vote he is now warning the Tories that if they don’t accomplish Brexit by Halloween, he’ll be waiting for them in the next general election and sweep them and the Labor party out of power.

Theresa May has declared her resignation and there should be a new Tory prime minister by the middle of July.  If it’s Boris Johnson or another Brexiteer it’s possible that Brexit can be accomplished.  Perhaps Farage’s threat will be enough to convince the Remainers that their intransigence will energize the country’s majority to sweep them out of Parliament and give the government over to the Brexit Party.  It’s hard to say.

Either way we see Nigel Farage as an outsider from the business world jumping into the political arena to wrest control of the levers of power away from a supposedly conservative elite that has decided to thwart the will of its constituents in order to cozy up to the very globalist establishment bureaucracy from which Britons voted to escape.  Well, if that’s not essentially Donald Trump with a British accent I don’t know what is.

I think it would be useful to have a meeting between Trump, Farage and Boris Johnson.  Farage and Johnson, if they coordinate their activities can make the Brexit a reality.  Trump can be the facilitator to help convince the British people that the Hard Brexit horror story that the elites have told them is only a fiction.  By highlighting the booming American economy, he can prove to them that managed decline doesn’t have to be the fate of the middle class.

Of course, it’s risky for politicians to be seen getting too cozy with foreign leaders (unless they’re Leftists of course) even if it’s the President of the United States.  But in this particular case I think meeting with Farage will be very good for both Trump and Farage.  Seeing Farage’s stock increase will tend to focus Johnson’s mind on how important it is to get Brexit done.  And indeed, accomplishing Brexit is virtually the only way the Tories have of staying in power.

But personally, what I’d love to hear is what these two men will say to each other when the video cameras and microphones aren’t on.  Both of them have demonstrated that they understand how to reach the middle-class people directly.  And because of that both have been attacked mercilessly by their opponents in the Media and the governing elites of both parties.  I have to imagine they would enjoy just comparing notes and telling war stories.  It would be like two magicians comparing experiences and trading secrets.  Maybe Trump and Farage can reach out to other populist leaders within the anglosphere and beyond (e.g., Italy) and coordinate strategy against the globalists.  They could form a sort of anti-globalist UN.  They could call it the DN, the Disunited Nations.

So let’s hope that Trump’s trip to Britain provides some positive energy for both the American and British Right.  And let’s hope that the new Tory prime minister works with Farage to convince the Remainers to support Brexit (or else).

Trump and Farage point to the peril that threatens our world.  The elites have gamed democracy.  And the only thing that stands in the way of some kind of repressive, decadent, roman empire-like world is a small group of independent businessmen who are defying their own class and providing the middle class with a voice and a champion.  It can’t be reassuring to know that everything we believe in is hanging on the thread of a handful of men.  But let’s pray that our luck holds out long enough to battle back from the edge of the cliff.  And let’s make sure Trump appoints a worthy successor.  After all, unlike Britain where a prime minister can stay in power for decades, an American president only gets eight years at most.

26MAY2019 – OCF Update

Please excuse the sparsity of posting this weekend.  An illness in the family took precedence, of course.  I hope to put something together for tomorrow that may be interesting.  It shouldn’t be too difficult with all the fascinating chaos swirling around our maelstrom of revolt.  The Brexit Party has upended the Establishment apple-cart in the British European Parliament election.  Essentially it’s like a second Brexit vote and this has finally forced Theresa May to declare her resignation for sabotaging the Brexit and even bungling that.  Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage are the men of the hour and with any luck they’ll force a hard Brexit and begin to eject the Remain Conservatives from their seats.

Trump and Barr are the focus on this side of the Atlantic and the prospect of DOJ Swamp Critters outbidding each other to be the Rat Who Stayed Out of Prison just warms my vengeful little heart.  Can you imagine Comey, Clapper and Brennan each trying to spin a tale that makes the other two the criminals and himself just an innocent bystander.  Be still my beating heart.

I’ll put up a review of the Blade Runner 2049 movie.  And I have a few things to say about the Globalists.

And finally I’d like to give a ShatnerKhan update.  Camera Girl has made destructive comments concerning the value of ShatnerKhan.  I won’t say this has threatened the marriage but it has certainly lowered my opinion of her cultural literacy.  But I haven’t allowed this assault to lessen my zest for all things Shatner.  Even now I am drafting the audio-visual list.  The Original Series, of course.  The two Twilight Zone episodes, absolutely.  Secrets of a Married Man, it’s canonical.  I have to watch some of Boston Legal to see if it’s Shatneresque enough for me.  But I don’t think I’ll go back to TJ Hooker.  Even I have limits.

Hopefully it will be a good week.
