Brexit: Why The Globalists Lost

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 10:05
Breitbart.com, by Allum Bokhari & Milo Yiannopoulos Posted By: steveW- Sat, 25 54 2016 08:54:51 GMT There’s panic in the skyscrapers. A popular revolution against globalism is underway, and Britain has struck the first blow. To the dismay of political, financial, and media elites, the country has chosen to put identity and sovereignty above a plus'one'or'minus'one change in GDP, and vote to leave the hated European Union. As with the USSR, the attempt to superimpose a manufactured civic identity over proud nation'states with rich and complex histories has run against the grain of human nature. The elites, so wrapped up in statecraft and economics, never paused to consider basic human psychology. It’s not just Britain, you see.

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 09:07
Fox News, by Cassi Pollock & Rudy Takala Posted By: Pluperfect- Sat, 25 54 2016 08:54:29 GMT Cuba is refusing to approve visa applications for members of the U.S. House Homeland Security Committee, according to the committee´s chairman. Members were hoping to leave on Friday afternoon to examine lagging security in the country´s airports, which are set to begin making flights to the U.S. this year. The lawmakers were forced to cancel when their applications were denied that morning. "We wanted to look at their airport security ... because TSA has been backchanneling to us that it´s not adequate," said Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul, R'Texas. "So I attempted to go down there to just look at them, there were

PAC Backing Hillary Clinton to Run $10.5 Million in Ads in Pennsylvania

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 09:07
New York Times, by Maggie Haberman Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 25 53 2016 08:53:00 GMT A “super PAC” supporting Hillary Clinton will begin a $10.5 million advertising blitz in Pennsylvania, a crucial battleground state that Donald J. Trump is seeking to win by appealing to white working'class voters. The wave of spending will begin on July 5 and run through Election Day, in the markets around Philadelphia, Scranton and Pittsburgh. The ad campaign brings the full amount that the PAC, Priorities USA, has reserved on television against Mr. Trump to $117.5 million, according to the group’s spokesman, Justin Barasky. “This morning Donald Trump cheered a potential economic collapse because it would be good for his

In need of help, Trump finds few willing to work for him

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 08:47
Associated Press, by Steve Peoples Posted By: Pluperfect- Sat, 25 52 2016 08:52:30 GMT WASHINGTON '' To compete against Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump has finally conceded, he needs more than the bare'bones campaign team that led him to primary success. Yet he´s finding that many of the GOP´s most experienced political aides just aren´t willing to work for him. From Texas to New Hampshire, well'respected members of the Republican Party´s professional class say they can´t look past their deep personal and professional reservations about the presumptive presidential nominee. There are exceptions, but many operatives who best understand the mechanics of presidential politics fear that taking a Trump paycheck might stain their resumes, spook other

Diplomats from EU´s founding 6 meet in Berlin to talk Brexit

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 07:12
Associated Press, by Staff Posted By: Pluperfect- Sat, 25 49 2016 08:49:56 GMT BERLIN '' Top diplomats from the European Union´s original six founding nations are meeting in Berlin for hastily arranged talks following Britain´s stunning vote to leave the bloc. German Foreign Minister Frank'Walter Steinmeier says it is critical to see the vote as a wakeup call. He was heading into meetings Saturday with his counterparts from France, Netherlands, Italy, Belgium and Luxembourg. Steinmeier says EU politicians must listen "to the expectations of the European governments but also to the expectations of the people." He cautioned against rash decisions, saying that "it´s totally clear that in times like these one should neither be hysterical nor

The EU needed Britain more than Britain needed the EU

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 07:12
American Thinker, by Sierra Rayne Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 25 46 2016 08:46:39 GMT The economic lesson emerging from the Brexit vote is consistent with what those who favored the Leave campaign long suspected: continental Europe needed the U.K. far more than the U.K. needed Europe. The globalist dominoes will ideally begin to fall after Brexit as other leading nations realize they have unwisely hitched their economic wagons to parasites for the past several decades (see, e.g., the U.S.'Mexico relationship in NAFTA). The Brexit hysterifiers almost uniformly predicted that it would be a Black Friday indeed for the U.K. if they voted to leave, and the other members of the EU promised to punish

New York Post, by Emily Smith & Ian Mohr Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 25 23 2016 08:23:20 GMT Ivanka Trump isn’t the only one who doesn’t want Corey Lewandowski around. Sources told Page Six on Friday that CNN’s “facing a near internal revolt” over Jeff Zucker’s hiring of Lewandowski as an exclusive commentator for the news network days after he was fired as Donald Trump’s campaign manager. “CNN is facing a near internal revolt over the Corey hiring,” said a TV insider, who described many in the newsroom as “livid.” “Female reporters and producers especially .?.?. They are organizing and considering publicly demanding” that Lewandowski be let go. The Post reported on Monday that the Donald’s daughter Ivanka

CBS Hypes ´Risk´ For Homosexual College Student To Come Out In Alabama

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 06:15
NewsBusters, by Matthew Balan Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 25 18 2016 08:18:08 GMT On Friday´s CBS Evening News, Steve Hartman hinted that the Bible Belt — and specifically, Alabama — was a dangerous place for homosexuals. Hartman pointed out that "a lot of people came out after [the] Orlando" terrorist attack, but touted how "few took as big a risk as Jesse Johnson. Jesse´s family lives in Jemison, Alabama, in the heart of the Bible Belt. Fly a flag here, and it better have just red, white, and blue." The correspondent included a soundbite from Johnson´s mother, who expressed her deep concern: "I worry for his safety because of that. I mean, this

´This is the end´: Media hysterical over Brexit

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 06:15
Washington Examiner, by T. Becket Adams Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 25 14 2016 08:14:47 GMT Reporters around the world were left terrified, heartbroken and angry over the vote in the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Union. "No words. The dream is over. Britain has voted to fall into the sea. This is the end," Fusion´s Felix Salmon opined on social media. "I despair. This is not my England." "I feel like there´s been a death in the family. There needs to be some kind of funeral," he added. U.K. journalist Oliver Bullough despaired, "If you voted Leave, you voted to destroy my country and ruin my children´s future. Do not expect me to

West Virginia floods: 23 people dead, including two kids

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 06:15
CBS News & Associated Press, by Staff Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 25 51 2016 07:51:19 GMT CHARLESTON, W.Va.' A deluge of 9 inches of rain on parts of West Virginia destroyed or damaged more than 100 homes, knocked out power to tens of thousands of homes and businesses and killed 23 people, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said Friday. Officials worry more victims will be found as they begin to clear the rubble. About 500 people were stranded overnight in a shopping center when a bridge washed out, and dozens of other people had to be plucked off rooftops or rescued as waters quickly rose during the storm. "Our focus remains on search and rescue," the governor

Bonfire of the EU laws: From crooked cucumbers to powerful vacuum cleaners, the barmy Brussels regulations we can now get rid of

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 05:56
Daily Mail (UK), by Amie Gordon Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 25 41 2016 07:41:58 GMT As the country reflects in the wake of the EU referendum, Leave voters are celebrating changing the course of history and breaking free from the shackles of the European Union ' and its laws and regulations. Despite the fact Britain has voted in favour of leaving the EU, this is still the start of a long process before the country officially untangles from the network of institutions in Brussels. And among that network there were a number of bizarre ' and some argued trivial ' rules the Brussels bureaucracy passed. Here are some of the more bizarre regulations the Brexiters

Putin on Brexit: No one wants to support weak economies

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 05:37
RT News [Russia], by Staff Posted By: PageTurner- Sat, 25 26 2016 07:26:23 GMT Russian President Vladimir Putin says ‘Brexit’ is the choice made by the British nation and is a comprehensible one, as “no one wants to feed weak economies.” Russia has not and does not plan to interfere with the results of the referendum, he added. “I think it’s comprehensible why this happened: first, no one wants to feed and subsidize poorer economies, to support other states, support entire nations,” the Russian president said at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Tashkent. “Apparently the British people are not satisfied with the way problems are being solved in the security sphere, these problems

Nigel Farage: Britons voted for Brexit because Obama told them not to

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 03:55
The Hill, by Mark Hensch Posted By: PageTurner- Sat, 25 21 2016 06:21:52 GMT A leading figure in the British push to exit the European Union says President Obama accidentally helped the Brexit cause. Nigel Farage on Friday said Obama´s calls for the United Kingdom to stay in the EU caused people to vote to leave. “Threatening people too much insults their intelligence,” the United Kingdom Independence Party head said. “A lot of people in Britain said, ‘How dare the American president come here and tell us what to do?’ ” Farage continued on Sirius XM’s “Breitbart News Daily,” citing Obama’s U.K. trip in April. “It backfired. We got an Obama'Brexit bounce, because people do not want

Brexit: Britain’s welcome revival of nationhood

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 03:55
Washington Post, by George F. Will Posted By: Dreadnought- Sat, 25 39 2016 04:39:38 GMT The “leave” campaign won the referendum on withdrawing Britain from the European Union because the arguments on which the “remain” side relied made leave’s case. The remain campaign began with a sham, was monomaniacal with its Project Fear and ended in governmental thuggishness. The sham was Prime Minister David Cameron’s attempt to justify remain by negotiating E.U. concessions regarding Britain’s subservience to the E.U. This dickering for scraps of lost sovereignty underscored Britain’s servitude and achieved so little that Remainers rarely mentioned it during their campaign. Project Fear was the relentless and ultimately ludicrous parade of Cassandras, “experts” all, warning

Britain’s decision to leave the E.U. is a warning to America

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 03:55
Washington Post, by Anne Applebaum Posted By: Dreadnought- Sat, 25 37 2016 04:37:38 GMT Like everybody else in London, I woke up this morning, after not much sleep, to graphic depictions of the pound crashing, the stock exchange collapsing and markets all over the world in turmoil. I have no doubt that tomorrow , or the next day, the story will be different. Traders will take a step back and notice that nothing, actually, has happened yet. There will be cheap assets to pick up. Markets will stabilize. The true impact of Brexit, on Britain and on Europe, will not be visible for many years. In a certain sense, it will not be visible

Brexit vote sends a message to politicians everywhere: It can happen here

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 03:55
Washington Post, by Dan Balz Posted By: Dreadnought- Sat, 25 34 2016 04:34:03 GMT LONDON — If anyone still needed a reminder that the phrase “it can’t happen here” should be struck from the lexicon of 2016, Britain’s historic Brexit referendum provided one more dramatic piece of evidence. The question is how Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and their allies interpret the results of what did happen here. The decision by British voters to take a leap into the unknown by severing ties with the European Union is by no means a reliable predictor of the eventual outcome of the presidential election in the United States. But neither was it an event without larger

POLITICO delegate survey: Dump Trump lacks the votes

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 03:55
Politico, by Kyle Cheney Posted By: earlybird- Sat, 25 24 2016 04:24:42 GMT Republicans looking to dump Donald Trump at next month’s convention have passion, energy and a fierce sense that their party will suffer unless Trump is unseated. What they appear to lack, however, are the votes to make it happen. POLITICO reached out to all 112 members of the committee that will write the rules of the national GOP convention. This is the panel that anti'Trump activists hope to jam a proposal through to free convention delegates to spurn Trump and select another candidate instead. What emerged from the survey, though, is a portrait of a committee with little interest in the dump

‘Latinas for Trump’ is a ‘coming out’ party

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 03:34
McClatchy News (DC), by Alex Daugherty Posted By: JoniTx- Sat, 25 01 2016 04:01:32 GMT A gathering of Trump supporters at Trust & Co. in Coral Gables had a different feel than the dozens of rallies the presumptive Republican nominee has held over the past few months. “I came here for the $5 drinks,” Nicole Aleman, a 36'year'old medical sales consultant, jokingly said. “I’m fearful of coming out in support of him because of the backlash that people can receive.” The attendees, mostly middle'aged women, wore cocktail dresses and sipped artisanal libations while passionately discussing illegal immigration. There was no hint of animosity or anger in the air. Everyone was nice to reporters and didn’t

Forget the Lifeboat, It´s the Iceberg that Counts

PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez Posted By: Hazymac- Sat, 25 32 2016 03:32:07 GMT Within 24 hours of the Brexit victory its disruptive effects made many argue it was a mistake; that it would not be long before a repentant Britain was pushing its face against the cold glass doors of the Euro cafe, wistfully eyeing the delicacies now out of its foolish reach. Yet others have argued in the same breath it would be Europe with its face pressed against the glass, longing the other way round. For example Jamie Kirchick writes in the NY Daily News that an EU without Britain would be easy meat for Russia. (Snip) Come back, Lord Shane!

Sat, 06/25/2016 - 03:34
Associated Press, by Staff Posted By: Ribicon- Sat, 25 22 2016 03:22:30 GMT Bernie Worrell, the ingenious "Wizard of Woo" whose amazing array of keyboard sounds and textures helped define the Parliament'Funkadelic musical empire and influenced performers of funk, rock, hip'hop and other genres, has died. Worrell, who announced in early 2016 that he had stage'four lung cancer, died Friday at age 72. He died at his home in Everson, Washington, according to his wife, Judie Worrell. Throughout the 1970s and into the ´80s, George Clinton´s dual projects of Parliament and Funkadelic and their various spinoffs built upon the sounds of James Brown and Sly and the Family Stone among others
