The real story here—and it's frustrating, to say the least, that it is not emphasized—is that the actions of Attorney General Lynch, in dramatically relaxing the dissemination of raw surveillance data in the last few weeks of the Obama administration, cannot possibly have been anything but an act intended to unmask the identities of Trump et al. to the public.
Of course the media would rather commit mass suicide than investigate that crime.Read more
Globalization was all well and good when it was about expanding economic opportunities, setting up factories and businesses with desperately needed jobs in places that had no other economic options to join the global marketplace.
The downside was yes, this cost some jobs at home, but this was somewhat mollified by understanding that the dollars per day those companies were paying the new workers was economically transforming in those areas.Read more
"Leftists have always been fascists, you just find it hard to believe because all your life academics and other elitist liars have been telling you fascists are right-wing."
How true. Many examples spring to mind, but I'll give one that demonstrates the point well enough. The last time that the former EDL leader, Tommy Robinson, was interviewed on the Anti-British Broadcasting Corporation by Andrew Neil, Neil pushed him, claiming that his politics was the politics of the Communist street thug.Read more
There are many incongruities in the EU. First, the Common Market was successful. It did not and does not require the EU step of political integration. Political integration can never work because there is just too much history in Europe.
The Germans don't REALLY want to become France and France doesn't REALLY want to become Germany. Etc.
Furthermore, just as part of the argument, take Germany. The Germans are great people: disciplined, industrious, well-educated, etc. But...they really have not been able to get this government thing quite right going back at least 200 years.Read more
Yes I know that the referendum was non-binding. And that was an error, or cunning plan, by EU Dave. But I doubt any leaver entered the voting booth on 23rd June thinking "if we vote out Parliament can ignore this because it's advisory only".
And a vote in Parliament will see this happen because hard Brexit will be defeated there.
I voted out because I want UK law to have primacy over EU law and to control our borders. I'm not anti-immigrant, I'm married to one, but I want Britain to have the final say on our immigration policy.Read more
The extinction of this destroyer of countries and lives, known as the EU, can't come soon enough.
After its death, it will take DECADES to recover and there will be much financial suffering of the 'ordinary' people as most of the billions paid in has been siphoned off and pocketed by the self-appointed elite...which is what it was all about to begin with.Read more
Is the author of this article being mendacious or obtuse? Or both? It carefully ignores the main arguments of globalist skeptics.
1. Americans support Donald Trump because he wants to stop *illegal* immigration with a wall. Or does the author think that it’s just fine that Mexican cartels smuggle people across the border along with drugs, rape up to 80% of the women they accompany, murder thousands of others, or just leave them in a desert wilderness to die of thirst?
2. Americans are waking up to the devastation of poorly written and policed trade agreements, they are not against “free trade”. Trump has the courage to point out the fact that China and other nations are cheating with currency devaluation and non-tariff trade barriers and intellectual property theft.Read more
It has never been easy to keep the "sovereign" responsive to the will of the people.
There always seem to be those who will find a way to appoint themselves as the next higher authority, whether it be by dint of royal blood or at the point of a sword or merely by shouting the loudest and the longest.
The idea that a small "group" of dissatisfied "citizens" (with or without the aid of outside forces) can find a way to overturn a binding vote of a sovereign people is repugnant.
In the end, it will be up to the people to enforce their will or accept subjugation and loss of self-determination.Read more
Article 50 should be enacted immediately yes. There is no point in waiting and negotiations proper cannot begin until it is enacted so what's the hold-up?
I do not envisage an easy ride out as this article implies though. Elected politicians will not be the ones in charge of this, and the commission will want to see us punished.
So I expect tariffs and German and French businesses to suffer the most, but then that is the system they created and today still defend so let 'em have it!Read more
So let me get this straight. If the people in Britain had been stupid enough to vote to stay, they wouldn't be bigots, racists, xenophobes and it would have been business as usual in the EU.
Since, however, the people of Britain basically told the EU to go pound sand, more countries want to leave. So does that make them bigots, racists, xenophobes too?
Buried in the article, is the fact that Germany would have to cough up an additional 2.44 Billion pounds since Britain exited.Read more
