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.
Conrad Black has been one of the President’s staunchest supporter. Now he explains why the AG’s investigation of the investigators or more accurately the conspirators responsible for this outrageous witch hunt is sure to be very interesting.
The subtitle for the article is “The real fireworks will only begin now as Trump seeks to investigate the investigators.”
Here’s a taste of what he says is in store for the Anti-Trump conspirators:
“The country is unlikely to have much patience with any more investigations of Trump. But it will be startled by the findings of the inspector general of the Justice Department, Mr. Michael E. Horowitz’s next report, and possibly by the mysterious special counsel John Huber (of Salt Lake City) looking into the Uranium and related activities of the Clinton Foundation for the last eighteen months, and by Attorney General William Barr and the Senate Judiciary Committee’s inquiries into how this destructive smear job was launched against the president in the first place. Some combination of those investigations is going to lay bare this entire sordid business, and some swollen and much-talking heads will roll.”
All I can say is, Conrad, from your mouth to God’s ear.
Conrad Black is a good friend of President Trump. And he is a very upbeat prognosticator of of our troubled times. But this little historical expedition to the French Revolution and de Gaulle’s 1968 power play are amusing and give an interesting comparison to the madness of the lunatic fringe of the Democrat party. Of course that fringe now encompasses the whole party so it’s an unusual situation. Fun to read.
The Democrats’ French Dilemma
Since the Brexit vote in 2016 I have been hoping against my better judgement that the Brits will be successful and unshackle themselves from the stinking corpse of the Holy Roman Empire. But everyone I read seems either more pessimistic than I am or is gaslighting us into the hopelessness of escape. Thank you, Conrad Black, for an opposing and reasoned opinion. I realize that Black is an ally of Theresa May but that doesn’t mean he’s wrong or that she won’t be able to provide Brexit. she knows the voters want it and she knows that the majority of her Tories are against it. She has to negotiate the difference and then hope to run out the clock once the EU negotiations fail to provide a satisfactory “Soft Brexit.” I hope he’s right. I believe there’s less than three months to the end date. Fingers crossed.
Conrad Black: Theresa May will find her way to a victory
My post here is an echo of an echo. Hanson is giving a description of Conrad Black’s biography of Trump, “Donald J. Trump: A President Like No Other“. Victor Davis Hanson is very often a good read, no matter the subject, and this article is no different. It has inspired me to get this biography even though I recently read a different (and less friendly one) one. I liked Hanson’s review so I reviewed it! Seriously, there’s nothing groundbreaking in this article but if you are interested in the biography and like Hanson’s style it’s a nice read.
[post script – After further reflection this is actually an echo of an echo of an echo. I’m writing about Hanson writing about Black writing about Trump]
