Independence Day Hypocrisy, Not Democracy / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

On July 4, 1776, America gained independence from Britain. Everything changed but stayed the same under new management - the way the framers planned it.

Today we'd call them a Wall Street crowd - a deplorable bunch, including bankers, merchants, planters, ship owners, lawyers, politicians, judges, slave owners and traders, speculators, smugglers, privateers, and other type wheeler-dealers.

“We the people,” meant them, not us. They created a government of men, not laws. Property owners alone had rights. Ordinary people didn't matter, entirely left out.

Anti-Brexiteers Hit London Streets / Politics / EU_Referendum

By: Stephen_Lendman

On June 23, referendum results showed most Brits for Brexit, an anti-neoliberal/pro independence rebellion wanting change.

Union beholden to Brussels sacrifices political sovereignty to a higher offshore authority. Independence may not change much but at least would let Brits chart their own way.

Sovereign independence is sacrosanct, inviolable - the inalienable right of all nations. Union destroys it.

Kerry Suggests Maybe No Brexit / Politics / EU_Referendum

By: Stephen_Lendman

Addressing the right-wing Aspen Institute on Wednesday, Kerry said Brexit “(d)idn’t change a thing.”

“This is a very complicated divorce.” David Cameron is loathe to invoke Lisbon Treaty Article 50, legally required to begin a lengthy Brexit process. He feels “powerless” to negotiate what he doesn’t want.

“(A)nd I think this is a fair conclusion - to go out and start negotiating a thing that he doesn’t believe in and has no idea how he would do it.”

Michael 'Little Finger' Gove Slays Boris 'Baratheon' Johnson in Game of Thrones for Next Tory PM / Politics / UK Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

David Cameron's announcement to step down as Prime Minister by early September propelled Brexit Leader Boris Johnson to become the favourite to takeover as Britain's next Tory Leader and Prime Minister. However, the great game for the Tory 'iron throne' was on, as Michael Gove today both discredited Boris Johnson whom he was supposed to be the campaign manager for and then went against EVERYTHING he has stated during the EU Referendum Campaign, in fact against everything he has been saying for the past 4 years by declaring that he himself would now stand for the Tory Leadership, so it looks like Gove, just like 'Little Finger' has apparently been manoeuvring towards the Tory 'iron throne' all along!

Brexit & The Precipice / Politics / European Union

By: Dan_Amerman

With the victory of the "Leave" camp in the June 23rd referendum in the United Kingdom, the world finds itself on the edge of a financial precipice.

Crucially - we are not over the edge, not yet. But it is right in front of us.

This is far more serious than anything that we have seen since 2008. And if we go over that edge then something potentially much worse than 2008 is in front of us. Which is exactly why Alan Greenspan is saying this is the worst financial situation of his lifetime, and why George Soros is now predicting that the disintegration of the EU and the euro is "practically irreversible".

14 Signs the World Is on the Verge of Generational Chaos / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

It is one of the great ironies of life that each generation believes its experiences are unique. The reality is that we have seen this movie before—with different actors, plot twists, and technological advancements.

The basic plot seems to push along a hauntingly familiar path.

In 1997, Neil Howe and William Strauss introduced the concept of Fourth Turning. They divided the population into four generational archetypes: Hero, Artist, Prophet, and Nomad. (read more about the archetypes and their characteristics here)

Each generation consists of people who were born and came of age at the same period in history. They had similar experiences and thus gravitated toward similar attitudes.

Millennials Are Doomed Face Existential Crisis to Define the Rest of Their Lives / Politics / Demographics

By: John_Mauldin

Psychologists from Sigmund Freud forward have generally agreed: our core attitudes about life are largely locked in by age five or so. Changing those attitudes requires intense effort.

Neil Howe and William Strauss took this obvious truth and drew an obvious conclusion: if our attitudes form in early childhood, then the point in history at which we live our childhood must play a large part in shaping our attitudes.

The Brexit: No One Said Breaking Up is Easy / Politics / EU_Referendum

By: Rodney_Johnson

British Prime Minister David Cameron must be frustrated with Brexit. He has long pushed for Britain to remain in the European Union (EU), but the vote is turning against him. Like a parent responding to a child who just realized that adults really can’t force him to do anything, Cameron’s struggling to persuade the population to see things his way.

He tried telling people about the wonderful, harmonic world they now enjoy as a pan-European group, but that didn’t fly. He waved white papers estimating that British GDP would fall 3% to 4% per year, but still no dice. So now, he has thrown down the fear card.

In Wake of Brexit the EU Announces Ultimatum For Superstate / Politics / European Union

By: Jeff_Berwick

The UK Express among other publications reported that plans have been announced for an EU superstate that would blend all EU nations into an Orwellian whole (European SUPERSTATE to be unveiled: EU nations ‘to be morphed into one’ post-Brexit).

That was quick!  Within two days of Brexit, plans were already released to rid all remaining EU nations of sovereignty!

That was even quicker than the 363 page “Patriot Act,” which was typed up in only seven days after 9/11!

Brexit Victory over the EU Globalists / Politics / EU_Referendum

By: BATR

The globalist establishment has been at war against the people for decades. Centuries of scheming produced the EU centralization monster. The overwhelming deceit and destruction caused by the ruling class has finally received a setback in a plebiscite on the European Union. The New World Order of collectivists born in satanic ideologies, implemented by international finance, imposed through the carnage of continuous wars and administered under an abusive bureaucracy system of non elected technocratic elites has suffered the repudiation of British men and women, who want to restore England to a sovereign nation under the principles of Magna Carta.

After 'Brexit,' Can the United States Exit a Few Things Too? / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week's UK vote to leave the EU may have come as a shock to many, but the sentiment that led British voters to reject rule from Brussels is nothing unique. In fact it is growing sentiment worldwide. Frustration with politics as usual, with political parties that really do not differ in philosophy, with an economy that serves the one percent at the expense of the rest of society is a growing phenomenon throughout Europe and in the United States as well. The Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump phenomena are but one example of a frustrated public sensing something is very wrong with society and looking for a way out.

Brexit: Anti-Neoliberal Rebellion / Politics / EU_Referendum

By: Stephen_Lendman

Adam Smith said governments are “instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor.”

Predatory capitalism dominates most societies, wealth unequally distributed, privileged few benefitting at the expense of most others.

Powerful interests use money to make more of it at the expense of beneficial social change. Dominance preserves capital’s divine right. Governments and business partner against the general welfare.

Brexit Contagion? / Politics / European Union

By: Stephen_Lendman

Euroskepticism isn’t confined to Britain. According to a Pew Research (PR) study conducted in April and May, it’s on the rise in other European countries.

“The British are not the only ones with doubts about the European Union,” said PR’s Bruce Stokes. “The EU is again experiencing a sharp dip in public support in a number of its largest member states.”

French and Greek anti-EU sentiment is greater than in Britain. Significant numbers of Germans, Spaniards, Swedes, Dutch citizens, Italians and others across Europe lost faith in a system harming their economic well-being, along with how Brussels is handling the refugee crisis.

European Integration Is Dead, Long Live Monetary Cooperation / Politics / European Union

By: MISES

Carmen Elena Dorobăț writes: The news of Britain’s decision in the EU referendum—and the subsequent resignation of David Cameron—created a wave of confusion and fear on financial markets. The pound sterling dropped to its lowest level since 1985, and the London stock market opened with a FTSE 100 lower by 8.9% compared to the day before. Debates were revived on what sectors of the British and European economy will be affected, what new policies must be designed to protect them, or how long and painful will the Brexit-driven recession be.

First the UK, then Scotland ... then Texas? / Politics / EU_Referendum

By: MISES

Ryan W. McMaken writes: That didn't take long. Only hours after the final results came in for a British exit from the EU, political leaders in Scotland are talking about renewing their drive to secede from the United Kingdom. 

Pointing to the fact that a large majority of Scots voted to remain in the EU, Scottish advocates for independence are now claiming (convincingly) that Scotland is leaving the EU against its will. 

Many of us who advocated for Scottish secession in 2014 were, of course fine with Scottish secession at the time. And we're still fine with it now. Scotland should be free to say good bye and got its own way.

Brexit is Just What the Dr. Ordered / Politics / EU_Referendum

By: Peter_Schiff

Janet Yellen should send a note of congratulations to Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson, the British politicians most responsible for pushing the Brexit campaign to a successful conclusion. While she's at it she should also send them some fruit baskets, flowers, Christmas cards, and a heartfelt "thank you." That's because the successful Brexit vote, and the uncertainty and volatility it has introduced into the global markets, will provide the Federal Reserve with all the cover it could possibly want to hold off on rate increases in the United States without having to make the painful admission that domestic economic weakness remains the primary reason that it will continue to leave rates near zero.

Last night Britons voted to leave the European Union, sending shock waves around the world — though not directly or immediately threatening the concept of European integration.

But what comes next emphatically does. Emboldened by the Brits, nationalist parties across the Continent are gearing up for exit votes of their own. Some notables:

BrExit: The System Cannot Hold / Politics / EU_Referendum

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Well, they did it. A majority of Britons made clear they’re so fed up with David Cameron and everything he says or does, including promoting the EU, that they voted against that EU. They detest Cameron much more than they like Nigel Farage or Boris Johnson. It seems that everyone has underestimated that.

Cameron just announced he’s stepping down. And that points to a very large hole in the ground somewhere in London town. Because going through a list of potential leaders, you get the strong impression there are none left. Not to run the country, and not to negotiate anything with Brussels. Which has a deep leadership -credibility- hole of itself, even though the incumbents are completely blind to that.
