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.

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.

Brexit Party Strength in EU Elections Signals a Fight Coming Up

Farange and his Brexit party are attracting voters from both Tory and Labor voters.  The new party is out-polling both of these parties in the upcoming British EU elections and it is plain that in the future the Brexit Party will attempt to force the Brexit by winning seats from both the Tories and Labor in an upcoming general election at some time in the future.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/may/11/poll-surge-for-farage-panic-conservatives-and-labour?__twitter_impression=true

Can Farange save the exit from the EU?  Well, that’s a question mark at this point, but whatever else happens the Tories look to be out as the majority party once the next election finishes.  And a self-inflicted death blow is the only way to describe it.  This is what we’d expect from the likes of John McCain or Mitt Romney.  Arrogant tone-deafness is the description I’d attach to this level of  imbecility.
