IT’S been quite a day. As the clock moved past midnight the experts were calling it for Remain and Nigel Farage was throwing in the towel. What followed, and is following, is truly momentous, a rare day which moves history in a new direction.
SITREP: Brexit won; Cameron has resigned and will stand down this summer; Sturgeon’s dander is up, calling for another Joxit referendum; and Jeremy Corbyn faces a leadership challenge as Labour MPs issue a vote of no confidence.
Well, that escalated quickly.
There’s much more to come. The prospects for individual politicians are neither here nor there, but the fallout from Brexit will last years and will affect every corner of Europe. It’s for good reason that the elites fear what they call “contagion”. Parties of the Left and Right are rising across the continent, fuelled by discontent, high immigration and chronic economies.
Our best hope now is that sensible, calm heads rule, everyone takes a deep breath and takes the weekend off. Everything will be fine as long as people stay calm and don’t do anything silly.
BEAUTIFUL words from Brendan O’Neill. Like him, I too am feeling the solidarity. I’m pretty sure that Remain will win the vote and in the process lose it for Britons. But the verdict of history is clear; we have right and justice on our side and one day we will win back our birthrights.
They’re voting all over the United Kingdom today, in what will be of the most important plebiscites in all of British and European history.
Here’s hoping that the winning margin will be sizable either way. A nail biter would not be good.
There are valid points to be made on both the Leave and Remain sides. A lot of those points have been made here, along with the hogwash about the Death Star EUSSRs or the allegation that all trade will cease once the ” racist ” English ” turn their backs on Europe “.
There was a time when there was an assertive Irish nationalism that demanded that Ireland be independent once more, that it be free to run all of its its own affairs, entirely sovereign in its own lands. Perhaps those Irish that believed in this once, or those that believe in it now, may have some degree of sympathy for those British – of all the peoples on the earth – who tonight hope to be a ” nation once again “.
On this momentous day, when the UK decides if it wishes to stand as a free and sovereign Nation State again, or whether it wishes to be consumed deeper into the EU, I saw this image and thought to share!
Can I also say that I found this quite inspiring!
And last but not least….
I will be voting to get my country back. Given the mendacity of the powers that oppose this, I can’t be sure I will be allowed it back.
Our Politicians are debating an Inalienable Right, while they refuse to debate the gross life ending incompetence of the Obama Administration.
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
The Founders at first draft didn’t want to include any defined restrictions in the Constitution. They didn’t believe it necessary they had restricted what a Federal Government could do without even bothering to state things that were obvious. However when the Document was sent to the 13 States for Ratification It almost didn’t pass. Hamilton, Madison and Jay were so concerned that they decided to publish a series of articles making the argument for ratification right to the people to pressure each State’s government into accepting it and why it should be accepted. Those arguments today are called The Federalist Papers. Even with winning that argument and getting ratification each State sent back a set of conditions. They eventually became the Bill of Rights. One of the reasons given against the need for a Bill of Rights was no American Government would ever try take away an Inalienable Right….. Tell that to today’s Jamooks….. Today even the Peace Love and Bobby Sherman hippies of the 60s led by Nancy Pelosi are holding a sit in protest complete with Anti-Gun chants just like the did during Vietnam. The only thing missing is someone passing a joint. It’s a pathetic sad scene that would be hysterical if it wasn’t real.
Any way the problem that caused this current attack and the Death of 49 People is a direct result of President Obama’s Incompetence.
This Animal was investigated TWICE by the FBI for terrorist analysis. Do you know why? Because those who KNEW him, friends and coworkers call local, state, and federal Authorities and said “Hey this guys a NUTTER, he’s talking repeatedly about committing Jihad and has access to Firearms.”
He wasn’t caught in some random sweep. Each time the investigated him for 6mths. The First time they asked the Justice Dept. for a 3 month extension and it was granted. The second investigation they asked for another 3 month extension and it was denied. The rules the Justice Dept has You can only track a suspected Terrorist for 6mths to see if he commits a crime. You can go to Justice at the end of that 6mths two times and ask for 2 and only 2 3 month extensions to the investigation. If in that time period if the FBI can not charge them with a crime they must be removed from all suspected terror lists, or you are violating the individuals Civil Rights. They are not allowed to monitor them unless a case can be through a new set of complaints and connections to even known terrorists.
This guy had TWO SEPARATE investigations against him as a result of calls from people who knew him. He purchased one of the weapons he used within a week of the event even if you prevent people from purchasing weapons that are on a no fly list it wouldn’t have stopped him because the Justice Department had ordered his name removed from the list because he was investigated and even though his behavior, and words all pointed to him committing Jihad he had committed NO CRIMES and JUSTICE ORDERED his surveillance ended.
The People that were MURDERED by this Animal were killed as a direct result of Obama’s Incompetence. His MANDATES enforced by the Justice Department. PERIOD end of story, (unless we Elect Hillary, and then this not only continues but worsens)
Rejoice Comrades! Confidence in the Dear Leader is at an all time high, only that running dogs of capitalism differ! gu.com/p/4mn53?CMP=Sh…
