The Infamous Ignatz

That Daniel Greenfield column is absolutely a must read. A quote;

The word of the future isn’t “union.” It’s “freedom.” A process has begun that will not end in Britain. It will spread around the world liberating nations from multinational institutions.

Precisely. The free and independent Westphalian state is the equivalent of the free and independent citizen.
When both pursue their enlightened self interest the result is not perfect but it is the best result available, given the real world, not the Fabian fairies' utopian one.

And that raises an important point Trump raises as well. The prog pansies have pretty much co-opted 'free trade' into their statist Dr Mengela menagerie. Real free trade would require a one page, or one sentence, accord; 'no tariffs allowed'.

Instead, under the auspices of people opposed to all things free, except lunches, they metastasize into documents and regulations thousands of pages long. No one or thing was ever made more free by a regulation thousands of pages long and no body promulgating one ever had that as even the slightest of its intentions.

(Britain) the victim, as Der Spiegel noted, of “an act of deliberate self mutilation” that bears the “emblem of a country in retreat.”

Self mutilation--That's my take on Germany's embracing the invasion of unidentifiable hordes* from the ME and demanding the rest of the EU help absorb them.
I heard again this a.m. M. Friedman's "You cannot have free immigration and a welfare state."
Our overlords think it's worth trying.

Good Morning Racists. Just heard Juan Williams on the FOX Business Panel pound the point that 83% of the voters in the UK were White, and therefore the vote was by people who don't look like the rest of the world and they're scared of people who aren't White and etc, etc, etc.

I am more hopeful today than I've been in a long time.

This from Clarice's 1:27 link is especially spot on.

"Brexit has shown us the weakness of the multinational establishment. Its vast bureaucratic power rests on using the media to suppress political dissent. When the media’s special pleading fails to stop the democratic process, it is more helpless than any dictator when the outraged mob pours into his palace.

What was true of Britain, is also true of America. Our elites are just as impotent. The power they have illegally seized is defended zealously by a media palace guard that spends every minute of every day lecturing, hectoring and messaging Americans. But when no one listens to the media, then the men and women who run our lives, who feed off us like a colony of parasitic insects, are helpless. "

It's like the old stick and stones song from when we kids. They can call us racists and stupid and h8ters, but all we have to do to end their power over us is to stop listening and caring about what they say.

They're saying that sorting out all the details of the Brexit will take two years. That already tells me what's wrong with the EU. Only a bureaucracy could create something so complex. A free market is actually pretty simple.

Iggy..I'd like to know where the federal weapons depot is for all these guns & ammo our gov't purchases. I think the people have a right to confiscate and redistribute the entire contents of these warehouses throughout the states, to anyone who can legally possess firearms. What is the real reason for stockpiling such weaponry? Can the federal government explain what clause of the Constitution allows every agency of the gov't to overwhelmingly arm itself AGAINST the citizenry?

The Infamous Ignatz

The federal national government can't explain what clause of the constitution allows it to do about 90% of what it does, BTDT.

A federal union works as long as power and control is de-centralized and held at the more local levels.

As power becomes too focused and centralized in a remote and increasingly alien capital, and as disparate peoples with differing cultures and values are subjugated under its oppressive and increasingly authoritarian laws that benefit a small oligarchy of elites, the population resists.

True in Europe, as it is here.

The elites both here and there have been pursuing a deliberate and incremental strategy to create a global, one world government that THEY would control.

They have understood that "nationalism" and "tribalism" - and the ability of their countries to defend themselves against foreign invasion - are obstacles to this process.

They have also understood that Western, Judaeo-Christian values and beliefs in capitalism, representative democracy and republicanism, and our belief in individual rights and responsibilities are all obstacles, as well.

So they have been engaged in a decades-long strategy of eliminating the will and means of self-defense, and socializing and indoctrinating people to believe that these basic, human impulses are somehow anachronistic, and even evil.

Recently, they have sought to hasten their objectives by opening their countries' borders to masses of Latin American and Muslim "refugees" - a force of Trojan horses that have their own Hispanic and Muslim jihadist objectives, in a pragmatic Realpolitik alliance to destroy America and Europe and our culture by changing the demographic compositions of these countries and to create the conditions of anarchy, chaos, civil breakdown and violence that they believe will give them the opportunity to fill the void that will be created so they can come riding onto the scene like saviors who can restore order and peace - but at the expense of all of our civil liberties and freedoms.

Hopefully, the Brexit and a possible Trump victory are indications that the rest of us are not yet ready to surrender, and that we will oppose this effort more vigorously than we have until now.

But the elites won't give up easily. They have influence, money, and the eternal desire for power and control.

Both they and their Muslim allies also have the will and capacity to use extreme violence against us.

We must be ready to respond.

I know you're all tired of hearing about a miracle, but 11 days ago a 16 yr old and his mother were sleeping on the floor because they had no money to buy a bed. The mother had no bottom teeth to chew her food. Today arrangements have been made for her to have a free bottom plate installed and the GoFundMe site has over a $100,000 dollars in it.
The Lord helps those who try to help themselves.

I urge those who know someone who really needs more help that they can't do them selves to look at starting a GoFundMe page for them. They won't all succeed like Chauncy's did but everyone who does makes the world a better place.

Lists of life- changing American discoveries and inventions - THIS is who we are!

There are endless possibilities - maybe ending with someone who is being LEGALLY sworn in as a new American citizen. THIS is who we are.....

OR ending with one of the clips of a gang of illegals streaming in - this is NOT who we are! ( I know, I know - I'm dreaming about that one!)

jimmyk:

It was my impression that once Article 50 is officially invoked, the exit itself will become official within 2 years max, whether the details have been worked out or not. Someone earlier suggested it could take as long as 7 years (kinda like needing 75 years to corral Hillary's State Dept emails for release), but I think that is not legally permissable.

Considering the complexity of the regulatory entanglements, I'm not surprised that it will take a couple of years. I just hope that David Cameron's 3 month notice, combined with passing the actual Article 50 declaration along to his successor, is not a potential delaying tactic. He apparently sounded sincere about acknowledging defeat, but I don't trust the Remainders to stay dead.

FD-this came out yesterday before the BREXIT vote, but it is the clarion call to higher ed everywhere to move away from knowledge in the traditional sense and prepare citizens with the mindset, values, and emotions needed for the just and equitable Planetary Civilization.

http://www.greattransition.org/publication/a-higher-calling-for-higher-education

The Great Transition is tied to the OECD and the UN entities and thus is a part of where the EU planned to go. When I was following up on it this morning it was pulling up all these EU mandates involving Active Inclusion and Social Innovation and I wasn't looking at the EU. It also pulled up an obligation to meet the needs of any migrants or refugees on parity with legal and long-time citizens.

I've already heard a bunch of people in the policy/academic world sneering at the ignorance of the UK voters, questioning the whole idea of democracy, the use of referendums, etc. I made the comment that there were some pretty well-informed people on the "Leave" side, and maybe ignorance is not the main driving factor, but that just caused more sneering. Apparently "Disagrees with me" is the definition of "ill-informed."

JM Hanes

This NYTimes analyst kept himself in check till the very last sentence, when he finally just had to let a bit of pique show:

Still, Mr. Cameron entered the campaign with the force of economic experts, President Obama, European allies and big business behind him. But as ever, referendums are not about the question asked but the political mood at the time, and the political mood is sour.
The message is never the problem.

I predict the British exit will go even faster. Other countries are already pounding the leave drums and even though the eu apparatchiks get free viagra they won't be in position to stop it. In fact, if they start threatening those who want to leave, the response ought to be a thorough audit is overdue and those who stole us blind will pay. Get out of the way.

It's funny, but the UK doesn't have a problem with Hindus. Curry has been one of the national foods of the UK for 50 years. It is the mass immigration from Poland, Romania, and elsewhere that seems to have disturbed the Midlands the most. Not a problem in Scotland and Northern Ireland, which are still very white and very Left. Wales was Left but manufacturing and fisheries have been hit hard.

The Leftists have really ghettoized themselves and now they are shocked that a good part of the world disagrees with their corporatist oligarchic model.

Just the other day the German foreign minister was blaming NATO for provoking the Bear with the exercises in Poland. That is the crazy thinking that has many people worried.The Fuehrers knows best thinking in Brussels, Berlin and elsewhere.

On FOX Business the Host is interviewing Lou Dobbs for input on last nights Brexit Vote. The Host plays this clip from earlier today of Lefty Economist and Hillary supporter Austan Goolsbee's take::

Goolsbee: "In the UK they had a temper tantrum. They kind of pitched a fit and they broke some things. Now it's the other guy, they punched, they punched their little brother in the face, now the little brother's going to have a temper tantrum and it's going to be Europe's turn to start smashing some things. If Europe has a full blown meltdown that will definitely effect the US in a negative way."

FOX Host: He is calling this world wide rejection of Bureaucrats trying to run economies a "Temper Tantrum." What do you make of that?

Lou Dobbs: (Laughing) He's a condescending, patronizing ass! Who in the world does he think he is...That kind of language, that kind of thinking, that kind of lack of respect for voters wherever they are in any Democracy is the stuff of which Revolutions are born. He was revolting. The next would be those folks that he seems to see in such small dimensions. The citizen in this country is Primary and has always been, and it's why we're the Beacon for freedom and Liberty around the World, because people like that, who think of themselves in the most elitist of terms and associate themselves with the grandest, the grandest of images, are really so irrelevant to our future as a country...

Hey Wall Street, how do you feel about Switzerland? Good investment? Swiss Francs?

In an interview today with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, the host suggested Trump pick either Senator Cotton or New Jersey Governor Chris Christie as his running mate.

“I’ve gotten very good, you know, very good statements from Senator Cotton, who is a, you know, who I know, whose parents I know and met,” Trump said. “I think that he is a very talented guy. He’s also very popular. He’s a very popular person. So these are two names that I have high on the list for something at least, that I can tell you.”

I’m must admit, I’m really enjoying myself today:

More than 2.2million London voters backed Remain compared to 1.5million in favour of Leave.

The Leave vote hit the City of London particularly hard as a day of horror saw billions wiped off FTSE 100 shares.

Frustrated Londoners have now taken to social media to ask London mayor Sadiq Khan to declare the city independent from the rest of the UK and stay in the EU.

Richard Crowest tweeted: "London, of course, voted overwhelmingly to stay. So, the campaign starts here. Independence for London within the EU!"

Fearghal Kelly added: "Currently wishing London was surrounded by water #IndependenceForLondon."

A petition on Change.org started by James O'Malley states: "London is an international city, and we want to remain at the heart of Europe.

"Let's face it - the rest of the country disagrees. So rather than passive aggressively vote against each other at every election, let's make the divorce official and move in with our friends on the continent."

I’d bet those 2.2 million remainders are going to have a hard time keeping the city up and running if the 1.5 million Brexits decide to relocate. Kind of like the American Tories who wanted to move in with their friends up in Nova Scotia — and almost died out because they had virtually no practical skills.

I'm okay with Cotton attending the Sea Island soirée for a few reasons: I think he was curious to see the machinations of something major - the possible theft of a major party nomination, and I think he was flattered to be included by the muckity-mucks.

What he did after that time is what really matters to me: he came back and started auditioning to be Trump's veep. He didn't sign on as a NeverTrumper or start undercutting him. From that, I speculate that he was disenchanted by what he saw and heard in Georgia, and hopefully realized the truth about the NT whiners.

I see this all differently than everyone else. This is a shot across the bow. I see the EU shrinking itself to recognize the vote for what it is - a precursor for other nation members.

i see negotiations on a much more serious, accommodating plane. It would not surprise me that this vote will start a reformation of the EU charter, its leadership, its laws, protocols and regulations.

The EU can keep itself together by reorganzing itself, downsizing and becoming more Federalist in its governance. If it doesn't then the UK did the right thing.

While doing catch-up so far I have found 2 stories that 30 years ago would be shocking but nowadays are a dime a dozen:

1) Hillary's Team deleted or never listed the mandated by Law details of her daily Official Schedule as Secretary of State. Either they blew that requirement off from the git-go, or they went back and intentionally deleted items to avoid scrutiny.

2) Some Federal Enviro/Nuclear Lab in Colorado has been uncovered cooking info since 2008, that it was discovered by the Administration that it was lying in 2008, yet it was allowed to continue cooking the books until at least 2014, as some of their fraudulent science was advantageous to the Global Warmists.

Everyday now we wake up to find similar new gross acts of corruption within our Federal Government and it's employees. Undoubtedly we will find more tomorrow. It's a fact of life, and until some actual consequences are actually visited on the perps it will continue.

This cannot be good news for Rodham. She is the candidate of more of the same. Worse, in the eyes of many, she is the candidate who is nudging (dragging?) us towards a future of more globalization and more immigration.

Trump does not have a coherent view of the future. His signature slogan -- "Make America Great Again" is an unabashed appeal to the past, a past without globalization or immigration. (His plans to reverse these things are unrealistic in my view, but his call to do so may well fit the mood of the electorate right now.)

If the lesson from Brexit is that the rank and file voters, including those who generally vote for the left of center party, are fed up with globalization and immigration and the elites who support these things, it is a lesson that Rodham needs to study very well.

Agree that the Churchill War Rooms are a must see.

Porch, all you grandparents who babysit--if I had to do it over, I would read much more Am history/biographies of Founders and Patriots to my kids. You can't assume they will be getting the exceptionalism at school any more.

"The EU can keep itself together by reorganzing itself, downsizing and becoming more Federalist in its governance."

Not gonna happen. They want the UK to depart as quickly as possible, before Brexit infects the EU body politic. The very fact that they kept the new budget, among other things, under wraps for nearly 6 months, lest it affect the referendum vote, makes it crystal clear that they knew what kind of reception it would get and didn't make any effort to adjust themselves accordingly. They respond by trying to hide the ball.
