  • Reactions to Brexit about as unhinged and hysterical as it gets

    The left is a little touchy about the rejection of its world-changing ideas I think it basically comes down to this: Once the left establishes an institution and populates that institution with its kind, the institution can never be diminished in the slightest - let alone dismantled - because that represents a setback for the left’s march toward the power to engineer the entire social and economic order. That will not do. Think about the way they look at public schools, which are heavily staffed by unionized teachers who always toe the Democrat line: If anyone chooses to pull their...

    It seems to be a regular feature of the U.S presidential election cycle: Candidates from both parties solemnly pledge to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, only to sidestep the issue upon taking office. Shouldn't the selection of a capital city rest solely with the people of the country who reside there? Donald Trump believes it should. As president, he would recognize the right of the Israeli people to choose their capital city (a choice, incidentally, that has remained unchanged throughout 3,500 years of uninterrupted Jewish presence in Israel). That choice is Jerusalem. Ever since King David established Jerusalem as the...

    In the previous post, I noted that Darrell Issa’s witnesses in the House Oversight hearings on Benghazi would make life difficult for both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Fox News reported late yesterday that one witness in particular will testify that Hillary purposefully cut out of the loop the State Department’s bureau for counter-terrorism as Benghazi burned — which will prompt all sorts of questions as to why any Secretary of State would make that decision: On the night of Sept. 11, as the Obama administration scrambled to respond to the Benghazi terror attacks, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and...

    EXCLUSIVE – The claim that the fatal 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks were sparked by an anti-Muslim video was crafted in Washington by Obama administration appointees and reflected neither eyewitness nor real-time reports from the Americans under siege, according to the final report of the GOP-led Benghazi Select Committee. The GOP report, released Tuesday, followed by less than a day a report by the Democrats on the panel saying that security at the Benghazi, Libya facility was “woefully inadequate” but former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton never personally denied any requests from diplomats for additional protection. According to portions of the...

    NEW YORK – The liberal, Reform, Conservative and secular parts of the American Jewish community may become more distant from Israel as the country’s demography becomes more Orthodox and nationalistic, according to a report presented to the Cabinet on Sunday. Results from the 12th Annual Assessment of the Situation and Dynamics of the Jewish People, put together by The Jewish People Policy Institute, were offered by JPPI Co-Chairman Ambassador Dennis Ross and President Avinoam Bar-Yosef. Bar-Yosef explained that while there is significant support for Israel in North America, it isn’t compensating for “the young generation of liberal and secular American...

    How much can you earn working for the Iranian state? That question is trending online in Iran, after the payslips of several employees were leaked online and published by several media outlets. They showed not just inflated salaries, but what appear to be bonuses, interest-free loans and significant overtime payments. In one instance, a bank manager at a state bank was shown to have received £50,000 in one month. By contrast, other public servants - including those who identified themselves as teachers, nurses and journalists - have published monthly payslips showing some of them are paid much more modest salaries...

    Who thought trying to find a Syrian refugee in a refugee camp would be like finding a needle in a haystack? Rebel Media reporter Lauren Southern visited the Calais Jungle, a large refugee camp generally inhabited by those trying to eventually immigrate illegally to the UK. When the debate over Syrian refugees began in America, our main concern was that terrorists would slip through the cracks. For Europe, they’re finding non-Syrian “refugees” are slipping through. And contrary to the narrative Barack Obama created, that those opposed to refugee resettlement were afraid of “women and children,” there really weren’t many women...

On a night that seemed to start badly for the leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), with the last opinion polls predicting defeat for the Leave camp in Thursday's referendum, Farage said at first it looked like Remain would win. But it ended with victory for him and on Friday morning he declared jubilantly that the vote for a British exit from the EU, or...

The report released Tuesday pointedly blamed a “rusty bureaucratic process” for the slow-moving response the night of the attack. The report said despite orders from President Obama and then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to deploy, the first military force did not do so until more than 13 hours after the...

    Britain's decision to "leave" the European Union (EU) ended the career of Prime Minister David Cameron, who had campaigned hard to "remain" in that supranational body of unelected bureaucrats. Small-c conservatives in Cameron's own Conservative Party rebelled against the liberals and globalists who dominate both major parties over there. Sound familiar? Everyone agrees that Donald Trump is the big winner of the vote. As the New York Times conceded, the "leave" voters are "eerily similar to Donald Trump's followers, motivated by many of the same frustrations and angers." Trump, who just happened to land in Britain as the results were...

    Democrats on the House Select Committee on Benghazi issued a report on Monday in which they said that Hillary Clinton was cleared of any responsibility for the deadly terrorist attack. The report was quickly condemned by Republicans as a “partisan” whitewash. “We have been hampered in our work by the ongoing Republican obsession with conspiracy theories that have no basis in reality,” says the 344-page report on the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in the Libyan city, during which Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed.

    One of the common laments of leftist commentators in Europe and America concerning Brexit is that holding referendums is a bad idea. The most frequently expressed example is the contempt in which the left holds British Prime Minister David Cameron for having suggested the referendum in the first place. But why would the left hate referendums? Doesn't it claim to represent "the people"? Isn't "power to the people" one of the most popular sayings of the left? Isn't the American left trying to abolish the Electoral College precisely because it isn't directly representative of "the people's" will? One would imagine,...

    How long will the Brexit meltdown continue? How far will the market fall? It's impossible to say for sure, of course. But if history is any guide, then you should expect about a month of market weakness and nearly an 11% decline before the next upturn. WPERS_01_062716This could help guide any post-Brexit investment moves you're weighing. Friday's 3.6% tumble in the market -- measured by the S&P 500 -- jibed closely with the 3.5% average first-day market decline sparked by all sorts of shocking stock market news since World War II. That includes bombings and assassinations, according to a Monday...

    Earthquakes seldom hit the British Isles. But one did late Thursday night and early Friday morning, as the constituency returns started pouring in on the referendum to decide whether the United Kingdom would remain in or leave the European Union. Most polls had shown a small margin for remain, and betting markets made it an odds-on favorite. Hedge funds went long on the assumption "Remain" would win. It had the support, after all, of Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, the leftist Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Bank of England President Mark Carney and the financial leaders of the City of London....

    Britain suffered further blows to its economic standing on Monday as two top ratings agencies downgraded its sovereign credit score, judging last week's vote to leave the European Union would hurt its economy. Standard & Poor's stripped Britain of its last remaining top-notch credit rating, dropping it by two grades from "AAA" to "AA" and warning more downgrades could follow. Fitch Ratings also downgraded its ranking for Britain's creditworthiness by one notch, and similarly said more cuts could follow. The ratings agencies effectively added a rubber stamp to the market's view of the Brexit vote, as sterling tanked to a...

    Which is why the elite don't see what the problem is To listen to the howling and wailing from the political and media elites, you’d think the British people were forcing their government to close all the hospitals and burn all the schools down. The reaction to Britain’s exit from the European Union has been that over-the-top hysterical. The British Empire survived for many centuries before anyone ever conceived of the EU – which was only established in 1993 – and I think it can probably do just fine once again not being a member of it. But you’d never...

    From Mediaite: CNN’s Fareed Zakaria spoke with Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources today about whether the media being too “elite” was a problem in how it missed the Brexit outcome so badly. Zakaria acknowledged that journalists tend to be “better-educated,’ “comfortable with diversity,” more liberal, and “probably less sensitive to the concerns” of average Britons who supported the Brexit. However, he said, the pro-Brexit campaign was “entirely using emotion, conjuring horror stories” about immigrants and the like, aided on by the British tabloids––which Zakaria referred to as “basically their Fox News.” Zakaria argued that “the media does have a bias...

That means disposing of the first taboo, and accepting that the problem is Islam. Islam is the problem....

Now, as predicted, after the “anti-globalist” Brexit result, Hillary Clinton goes further into the status of “radio-silent”. Full Stop (stay quiet, stay deep), and stay away from visibility until the consultants can gauge the best course. In modern U.S. elections polls can have two purposes: #1 is to display the current status of any given election. #2 is to provide a preferred media narrative...
  • Scotland can have a second referendum, but it must decide on a currency first

    06/25/2016 9:20:37 AM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 50 replies
    I believe that the currency issue did more than anything to deliver the late swing to No in the last referendum. The question of the choice between the pound, euro or a currency of Scotland’s own was never clarified, and that was fatal to the cause of independence in 2014. Unless the issue is resolved before another referendum I strongly suspect that this issue might again be fatal to the cause of Scottish independence. There are only four options. They are the pound, the euro, the US dollar or Scotland’s own currency.

It’s likely that more people would have been killed.” This was Bill Clinton’s response to a suggestion that law abiding people with firearms of their own might have been able to save lives by stopping Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen at the Orlando nightclub Pulse. Of course, Bill was comfortably surrounded by armed security during his Bloomberg television interview, as was Barack during his speech in Orlando a few days later. But Obama offered an even more pointed dissent from those who believe the little people should be permitted the means of preserving their...

    It’s official. The Administration of President Barack Obama does not want you to understand the danger that you, your friends, your family, and your loved ones are in. With the recent attempt at the Cabinet level of the U.S. Government by Attorney General Loretta Lynch to censor what the terrorist responsible for the greatest terror attack since 9/11 was saying on the phone to the 911 dispatcher during the Orlando massacre, we have the smoking gun of Orwellian “Newspeak” in America. Barack Obama and his political appointees and cabinet members have been trying for more than five years to explain...
  • "Vanity" Where is Hillary Clinton?

    The question of the day, in fact, of the campaign, is where is Hillary Clinton? For at least the last two weeks she has held a few campaign rallies that were either, lightly attended by her supporters or filled up with paid Clinton staffers. As for this weekend, her staff said she was taking time off from campaigning. What campaigning? Where are the press conferences? Actually....I believe that POTUS Obama in now the number one campaigner for the upcoming POTUS election. Hillary has been sent to a "Time Out" by Obama, who is now terrified, that what little positive legacy...

    His only qualification was giving lots of money to the Clinton Foundation A few weeks ago, ABC broke the story of Raj Fernando, a big-money donor to the Clinton Foundation - as well as past campaigns of both Obama and Hillary - and how he managed to land a spot on the prestigious International Security Advisory Board. That’s a board generally populated by former generals, governors and top diplomats, who advise the Secretary of State on international security matters. Lots of eyebrows were raised when a securities trader with no background in any of this was introduced as a new...

    But it is the flow of people into the European Union that has had the greatest geopolitical impact, and helped to precipitate the British vote. Stabilizing Syria and permanently curbing the refugee flow could be one of the critical factors in determining whether Europe can steady itself politically. Before the refugee crisis, the European Union was already an unwieldy and unfinished entity. Its contradictions and imperfections were exacerbated by the economic crisis. Yet it was the onset of more than a million refugees marching through Greece and the Balkans toward Germany that may ultimately prove to be the most destabilizing...

    Turkey's high-flying economy, which expanded at a 10 percent annual rate of gross domestic product growth during the first half of 2011,[1] will crash-land in 2012. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip ErdoÄŸan's "economic miracle," to use the Daily Telegraph's admiring words,[2] depended on a 40 percent annual rate of bank credit expansion, which in turn produced a balance of payments deficit as wide as that of southern Europe's crisis countries. Markets have already anticipated a sudden turnaround in the Turkish economy. The Turkish lira (TRY) fell by a quarter between November 2010 and September 2011, making it the world's worst performing...

    Turkey and Turkish Cyprus signed a deal on Wednesday in New York to establish a ground for offshore gas exploration in a move set to escalate the already high regional tensions over Mediterranean energy reserves and border issues. On Tuesday, the Greek Cypriot administration confirmed that drilling had begun in a southeastern offshore block, adjoining a gas field in Israeli waters reputed to be the world's largest gas reserves find of the past decade. With the latest agreement the ethnic Turkish northern half of Cyprus, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, marked its marine borders with Turkey and will issue licenses...
