First?

Yay, cathyf!

I think there's a November landslide brewing for the good guys. The NeverTrump people better wake the hell up.

History repeats itself:
After an unequivocal experience of the inefficiency of the subsisting federal government, you are called upon to deliberate on a new Constitution for the United States of America. The subject speaks its own importance; comprehending in its consequences nothing less than the existence of the UNION, the safety and welfare of the parts of which it is composed, the fate of an empire in many respects the most interesting in the world. It has been frequently remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force.
—Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 1 (1787)

I knew you guys would pull through. We gotta keep our sense of humor.

Don't you love Pelosi with her pearls and Apple watch singing we will overcome!

Theo

Amazing if the Brexit vote holds up. Could be good for Trump in several ways. It shows voters may be really ready for a change even a radical one unthinkable to the elites. Also the resultant economic downturn will be blamed on the Democrats.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. The referendum is technically non binding. Watch out for a Remain coup.

Stephanie

Y'all got me to abandon the regex, parser patterns with 8 business days to launch of the new website with your giddiness...

Come on Dover! and Chelsea! and Mayfair!

And they asked me to stay on after the launch to run the whole shebang!

Buh-duh.

That's the one. We go live with the new website on 7/11. I'm hip deep in parsers, regex, debugs, payment systems, help desks....

And we now have developers in the Ukraine and in Singapore, so my sleep habits are... zzzzzz...

Porchlight

Farage declares.

Holy cow. I'm going to seriously tie one on, folks.

Happy Independence Day!!!!

I hope they are not on the same conference call, because that would be wild,

Don't pop the champagne cork just yet. Not yet a done deal. But the pound is tanking.

The email was included within messages exchanged Nov. 13, 2010, between Clinton and one of her closest aides, Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin. At the time, emails sent from Clinton's BlackBerry device and routed through her private clintonemail.com server in the basement of her New York home were being blocked by the State Department's spam filter. A suggested remedy was for Clinton to obtain a state.gov email account.

"Let's get separate address or device but I don't want any risk of the personal being accessible," Clinton responded to Abedin.

Clinton never used a government account that was set up for her, instead continuing to rely on her private server until leaving office.

The email was not among the tens of thousands of emails Clinton turned over to the agency in response to public records lawsuits seeking copies of her official correspondence.

For once, Theo is s correct. Dial it down re. Brexit. Not binding. Nothing will happen for years if at all. High likelihood the PTB tell the UK voters to screw themselves.

jimmyk

I'm watching Fox Business. Sky News trimmed its forecast to "Leave" by 52-48. (It was 53-47 an hour ago.)

Another Bob

Watching Sky News live via Roku.

Theo

Tightening just a bit. Leave at 51.3%. Still enough votes out there to make up the difference. Hang on tight. This could be real close.

DrJ

It is interesting that the English (excepting London) and the Welsh are favoring Brexit. The Scots are against. No word yet from the Irish.

Stephanie

Occasionally we have 3 time zone Skypes, but generally the Ukrainians relay directives to the Asians. It has been.... interesting.

Plus next week we are adding 5 data clerks in India (I fought like hell against that). And now I get to mother hen the whole kaboodle. Anyone got a babel fish?

ann

I am with you Porchlight. It would be a great start for us if they win!!

Not binding.

SFW. Don't be like that, brother.

The vote is going our way. Western Civilization is not lost.

Wsj is live blogging. They are feeling some serious butt hurt.

I haven't emailed you in a long time, Stephanie.

How are you?

Another Bob

London being held back until they know how many votes they need to manufacture?

jimmyk

Results seem to be piling in now, Leave's margin keeps growing, now over 750,000.

Theo

51.3%. Holding steady.

Porchlight

Most of London is in....

Theo

Key is where the votes yet to be counted are from. If from central London, not good. If from outside the city and not Scotland or Ireland or the weird places like Falklands or Gilbralter, very good.

Theo

Porch --

Very good if true about London being mostly in.

Porchlight

Rotherham votes to Leave. Can you blame them?

jimmyk

Now Sebastian Gorka is on.

Is Europe unraveling? Gorka says Europe is "dead as a doormouse" (whatever that means--isn't it "dead as a doornail"?). Sovereignty is the key issue.... Migration tipped it.

jimmyk

Now it's narrowed a bit still over 700,000.

Another Bob

Per Sky, London boroughs just coming in.

glasater

And they asked me to stay on after the launch to run the whole shebang!

You can do that in your jammies, Steph :-)

Traders are selling pounds and buying yen. Can you explain why they would do that jimmyk?

That's fantastic, Steph!! Although they probably just wanna hear your accent some more... ;)

Porchlight

I've never been so happy to see blue on a map!

jimmyk

Finance people like the status quo, Theo. And the politicians have convinced them it's the end of the world. I'm with Gorka: "A storm in a teacup."

Whos ITV

ITV just called Leave as the winner

Theo

51.6%. Lead growing slightly. Almost 80% in.

Another Bob

ITV has called it for Leave.

jimmyk

Stephen Moore is on (isn't he WSJ?) and he's very happy, says "It's the end of socialism."

Another Bob

But why JPY, jimmyk?

Theo

BBC calls it for Leave!

jimmyk

Beeb calls is for "Leave."

Stephanie

Excellent, TK, but sleepy.

But as glasater says, I can work in my jammies!

Funny story... had a skype this am... very early am and I run in to catch the call and 1/2 way through I realize I'm in a t-shirt, no bra and no shorts and I've been skyping in my undies for about an hour. I think it almost broke the net. ;)

Note to self... don't stand up while skyping.

Theo

To echo Another Bob, why the yen instead of the $?

Obama Sucks

Trumps Fault!

jimmyk

I don't think it's specifically JPY, it's just the Pound falling against everything else.

Porchlight

BBC calls it for LEAVE!

RattlerGator

Since they've called it for Leave, I think I'll exit now on this historic overnight.

jimmyk

Last I saw, the pound was down almost 10% against the dollar.

Haha!!!

WSJ says that yen is the escape currency of choice for those fleeing the pound. I don't understand why.

Porchlight

Holy [redacted]. I prayed for this. I thought it could happen but I didn't dare to hope. Been burned so many times.

MBGA!!!

maryrose

This is so great!
Leave is going to win!

Theo

I saw an article where some EU bigshot/nitwit was complaining that the member states were paying too much attention to their voters and needed to simply move towards an ever closer union without consulting them.

Maybe that message got through.

Thank you, but can't claim credit, Janet. Found it on the Trump Reddit forum. :)
