There is trouble ahead for Great Britain as the leaders of the British exit from the European Union (Brexit) quit in disgust over Prime Minister Theresa May’s abhorrent acquiescence to multinational corporations and the EU globalists. British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson quit today.
Western Media are quick to come to the defense of Prime Minister May due to their financial and ideological alignment with the multinational media organizations and corporations who pull the strings.
EU Council President Donald Tusk quickly raises the idea that Brexit might be called off. “Politicians come and go but the problems they have created for people remain,” he tweeted. Ultimately, this has been the goal of the multinationals’ all along. The EU constructed the Brexit negotiations around the basic premise there would be no substantive change to the relationship. Prime Minister May went along with the corrupocrat scheme, and now the primary voices behind the Brexit negotiation have quit.
(Via Reuters) […] May’s office said it had accepted Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson’s resignation on Monday, hours after Brexit minister David Davis, in charge of exit negotiations with the bloc, quit on Sunday night.
The two departures shatter May’s own proclamation of cabinet unity last Friday, when she believed she had, after two years of wrangling, secured agreement on Britain’s biggest foreign and trading policy shift in almost half a century. (read more)
What an elitist jerk !!
As an outcome, the UniParty British Parliament (Labour and Conservatives) are thrilled as the voices of the British people are dismissed. Elitism within the ‘we know better’ crowd rears its ugly head once again.
There’s a familiarity, an almost parallel construct, taking place within the United States congress over international trade negotiations etc. The U.S. UniParty, filled with politicians who are purchased by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Wall Street and the multinationals, are fighting against President Trump the same way the U.K. politicians are fighting against the British people.
American ‘Deplorables’ find common cause and understanding with the British ‘commoners’; both groups fighting against a political class that sees themselves as better than the group they are supposed to represent. Sickening elitism and globalism on display in both countries. Underpinning it all is the root of all evil, money.
The timing is interesting. U.S. President Trump is scheduled to arrive in the U.K on Thursday. President Trump fully supports the sovereign right of the British people to get out of the European Union; and he supports Brexit. Conversely Prime Minister Theresa May is aligned with the ruling class against the majority will of her constituents. There is a prime opportunity for President Trump to speak in support of Brexit and dispatch the elitist sensibilities of the British ruling class.
No doubt the politicians within the U.K. are concerned about the optics of a U.S. President Trump outlining freedom and the voice of the people while the elite ruling class are forced to listen….. This could get very interesting.

COMMENT: Just to chime in, I discovered the 6 month rule when I tried to fly from Toronto to LA. They would not let me on the plane.
REPLY: It appears that if you are Canadian and drive across the border that seems to be OK. But if you fly, then they do all the checks and the airlines tend to be the enforcers. You should always have an address where you are staying no matter what the country. So make sure you have the hotel name and address. A friend of mine in Montreal was sending his daughter and her friend to Philadelphia to visit the sites. He asked if I would make sure they were OK and got to the hotel. I said no problem. I went to the airport to pick them up. She spoke broken English and did not know the hotel or address. Her father booked it and she knew I would be there to take them to the hotel. When confronted by border guards, she could not answer that question and handed the guard her phone and told him to call me. My phone rang and it was the guard. He acted surprised that I was actually there. He then bluntly asked how was I going to communicate with them. I responded in French, asking him if he spoke French. Of course he did not. I explained I knew her father and asked what was the big deal, they were Canadian. He was nasty and replied that they were still aliens. He let them pass and I was shocked that he at least called me instead of just putting them on the next plane back at the government’s expense. Generally, over 200,000 people are denied access at the border each year.

Yikes, looks like someone following through on Congresswoman Maxine Waters approach toward political violence was just arrested. From the Eastern District of VA:
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A California man was arrested today in Los Angeles on charges of threatening to kill the family of Ajit Pai, Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, for Pai’s role in repealing regulations relating to net neutrality.
According to court documents, on or about Dec. 19 and 20, 2017, Markara Man, 33, of Norwalk, allegedly sent three emails to Chairman Pai’s email accounts. The first email accused Chairman Pai of being responsible for a child who allegedly had committed suicide because of the repeal of net neutrality regulations. The second email listed three locations in or around Arlington, and threatened to kill the Chairman’s family members.
The third email had no message in its body, but included an image depicting Chairman Pai and, in the foreground and slightly out of focus, a framed photograph of Chairman Pai and his family. The FBI traced the emails to Man’s residence in Norwalk, California, and when initially confronted in May 2018, Man admitted to the FBI that he sent the email threatening Chairman Pai’s family because he was “angry” about the repeal of the net neutrality regulations and wanted to “scare” Chairman Pai.
Man is charged with a threatening to murder a member of the immediate family of a U.S. official with the intent to intimidate or interfere with such official while engaged in the performance of official duties, or with the intent to retaliate against such official on account of the performance of official duties.
If convicted, Man faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. Actual sentences for federal crimes are typically less than the maximum penalties. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after taking into account the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors. (read more w/ PACER link)
