Leavers Decry Boris’ Deal But RemainersAre Panicking

 

As Britain gears up for a General Election on December 12, accusations fly from both sides in the Brexit debate about Boris Johnson’s deal.

“It’s a betrayal, not really Brexit, it will leave us still subject to EU laws and trade regulations,” Leave supporters say.

“It will trash our economy, destroy the value of the pound, cause massive increases in unemployment and leave us politically isolated in a hostile world,” say the people who for three years have tried all sorts of stunts to thwart Brexit.

So where does that put the majority of us who voted Leave on the basis of a considered review of evidence rather than some ideological agenda?

No, you can’t always get what you want
aaaah
No, you can’t always get what you want
aaaah
But if you try sometime, you just might find
You get what you need

So sang the rolling stones more years ago than I care to remember. It was good advice that I, as a Leave voter who voted LEAVE (in capital letters), not leave with a dodgy deal, leave but stay in a customs union and subject to EU laws and certainly not “think about leaving and then decide to have another referendum,.” after my experience of working for the EU I wanted a clean break.

But I was under no illusions, you can’t always get what you want annd knowing the political and legal establishment, the media, much of the business community and academe were rabidly pro EU and all that it stands for it would have been unreasonable to expect we’d get clean away.
The EU did not want to let us go, our own political parties and opinion makers were hopelessly divided and gave no leadership, .and when the Conservative Party backroom deal makers shoehorned Theresa May into Downing Street I almost plunged into despair.

Boris’ deal is not great, there are some strings attached that may be hard to break, but unlike the Leavers who are claiming it is a betrayal or it is the same as May’s deal, I’m willing to give him a chance.He called the EU’s bluff and managed to convince them he was serious enough about No Deal to make them reopen May’s surrender treaty and not only secure some concessions but also open a few gates to amending the terms of our relationship with the EU later.

And we have dates at which various states of the transition will be completed.

So let’s not fool ourselves that a ‘no deal’ exit would have meant totally in the EU one.day, totally out the next, that was never going to happen just as when two commercial organisations merge they do not become a new organisation overnight.

I did not get what I wanted, but given that Boris and his team have rescued us from May’s awful deal, I’ll settle for what is on offer for the present and keep working to expose the EU for the Cultural Marxist project it is, hoping that in some small way I can influence our politicians to progressively increase the distance between London and Brussels and encourage voters in other EU states to step up the pushback agains the EU Commission’s imperal ambitions.

After all it might be what we need to strike a bow at the foundations of the European project to create a federal superstate from Europe;s sovereign nations.

Enter The Dragon Redux: Hillary Clinton Preparing 2020 Presidential Run?

Authored by James Howard Kunstler via Kunstler.com,

Enter, The Dragon

You’d think Hillary Clinton might come up with a better zinger than “Russian asset” when she flew out of her volcano on leathery wings Friday and tried to jam her blunted beak through Tulsi Gabbard’s heart. Much speculation has been brewing in the Webiverse that the Flying Reptile of Chappaqua might seek an opening to join the Democratic Party 2020 free-for-all. Wasn’t “Russian asset” the big McGuffin in the Mueller Report – the tantalizing and elusive triggering device that added up to nothing — and aren’t most people over twelve years old onto that con by now?

It’s not like Tulsi Gabbard was leading the pack, with two cable news networks and the nation’s leading newspapers ignoring her existence. Tulsi must have been wearing her Kevlar flak vest because she easily fended off the aerial attack and fired back at the squawking beast with a blast of napalm:

     “Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies….”

Ouch! The skirmish does raise the question, though: is the Democratic Party so sick and rotted that it would resort to entertaining Hillary Clinton as the 2020 nominee? Fer sure, I’d say.

Standoff Between Pakistan And India May Spark Nuclear Conflict, Envoy Warns

The long running, low key conflict between his country and India-rivals could ignite a nuclear war that would kill hundreds of millions, the head of Pakistan’s diplomatic mission to Kashmir has warned. said that. These comments, come just days after Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan used similar rhetoric to warn India off further escalation of tensions.

Pakistani Kashmere – beautiful but is it worth fighting a nuvlear war over (Pic: Wikimedia)

“If a war breaks out between India and Pakistan, it will be quick, dirty and deadly. It will be an Armageddon, hundreds of millions will die in South Asia, and 2.5 billion people will be affected by radiation all over the world,” said Masood Khan, the president of the Pakistani-controlled part of Kashmir, according to a report by RT

Just because other countries wouldn’t be involved in this particular war, the consequences of unleashing a nuclear weapon would have far-reaching effects.

With two nuclear powers, one with a population of 1.2 billion while the other has over 200 million people facing off, how many other countries need to be involved to turn any conflict into the biggest mass slaughter in history?

Masood Khan, Pakistan’s former envoy to the United Nations, then struck a more conciliatory tone than his country’s Prime Minister, saying his country is not seeking war, but he wants to predict “a realistic scenario so that international community could intervene and pile pressure on India.”

So basically, Kahn is still asking for violence, just as long as it’s on his side only.

India and Pakistan previously fought wars over the disputed territory of Kashmir in 1947 and 1965, and have engaged in an array of smaller cross-border skirmishes since, most recently in February of this year. Then, although the incident received little coverage in minstream media the nuclear-armed neighbors came too close for comfort to full-scale war, but mutual diplomatic efforts and goodwill gestures helped lower the temperature for a while, reported RT

Last week, Imran Khan warned that a “bloodbath was brewing in the disputed territory, and hinted that weapons of mass destruction could be employed against India if war does breaks. The remarks were condemned in New Delhi, with government ministers and pundits accusing him of warmongering” and “obsession with Kashmir.”

Russia Warns Attack On Saudi Oil Plant Will Hit Fuel Prices

 saudi-oil-fire
World’s largest oil refinery ablaze after Houthi rebels drone strike (picture: Screen grab from Sky News video )

Following the drone attack by Yemeni rebels on a major Saudi Arabian oil processing plant, The Kremlin’s warned that the loss of production from the stricken plant will destabilise oil prices worldwide.  This follows statements by the European Union and the UK condemning the Houthi drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities carried out on Saturday (14 September, 2019).

While President Trump made belligerent noises, guaranteed to provoke the rebels Shia Muslim supporters in Iran , Russian President Vladimir Putin has simply asked to b kept up to date on developments in the wake of two drone attacks on the major Saudi energy facilities.  Russia believes such incidents will not contribute to the stabilisation of the global energy market, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said. It is safe to assume Russia’s leaders see the incident as an opportunity to benefit from higher crude oil prices.

“The drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s oil infrastructure are an alarming event for the oil markets…Of course, such turbulence does not contribute to the stabilisation of the energy market,” Peskov said.

According to Peskov, the Saudi side has not appealed to Russia for assistance in the wake of the attacks, and probably has the necessary capacity to deal with the disruption on their own. “We don’t know whether they need help, but it’s unlikely. They have all the necessary capabilities themselves,” he said.

Peskov said the Kremlin “strongly condemned” Saturday’s incident, if it could be confirmed that the Saudi Aramco facilities were attacked by drones. (He would say that, wouldn’t he?)

EU, UK, France Condemn Attacks

Earlier on Sunday morning, the European Union’s foreign policy office issued a statement condemning the drone attacks, which, the statement read, posed a “real threat” of escalation of the Saudi – Yemeni conflict into full scale war between two regional powers, Saudi Arabia and Iran, and adding that “at a time when tensions in the region are running high, this attack undermines ongoing work at de-escalation and dialogue.” Brussels stands in solidarity with Saudi authorities and the Saudi people, the statement noted.

The UK Foreign Office also condemned the attack in diplomatic terms although certain people in The Treasury must have been rubbing their hands with glee as it becomes economically viable to reopen many North Sea rigs if Brent Crude goes above $80. China too would not be disappointed as Saudi Arabia is a long term ally of the USA, while the smaller oil producers most likely to benefit from the Saudi outage are more friendly to The People’s Republic in its bid to establish the petroyuan as a rival to the Petrodollar for cross border oil trades.

We have reported many times on the merciless bombing of the impoverished Shia Muslim state of Yemen. The conflict started when rebels tried to depose the Saudi – friendly regime and spawned a huge humanitarian crisis which was barely reported in mainstream media, as Saudi air strikes targeted roads, water supplies, sewage systems, hospitals and ports.

Predictably, news of the attack drove financial and commodity traders traders into a collective panic as global markets reopened after the weekend break, with with commodity traders desperately trying to calculate what the upper limit per barrel of oil prices would be (the previous record of $1.09 might hold when markets realise that while Saudi Arabia is still the world’s second biggest producer it is not as dominant as it once was, having been passed by the USA in 2018, and if the Kingdom and Iran decide to neutralise each other, Russia, Venezuela, Kazakhstan, the nations of the Caspian region, Nigeria , Mexico and a host od smaller oil producing nations will be happy to pump more once higher prices make production economically viable. When brent (the highest grade of crude,) reopened for trading in the aftermath of Saturday’s attack on the “world’s most important oil processing plant“, the price immediately exploded to around 20% higher than at close of business on Friday, to a high of $71.95 from the Friday $60.22 close, its biggest jump since 1988.

The hit to stability of supplies will exceed the loss of Iranian oil output in 1979 during the Islamic Revolution, according to data from the U.S. Department of Energy. It will also be worse than the loss of Iraqi and Kuwaiti production in 1990 when Saddam Hussein decided to annex Kuwait and add it to his empire and saw most of the oil infrastructure of both nations destroyed in the ensuing war.

News that the Saudi outage could last for months, rather that the weeks initially predicted suggest this could be just the start. Even if there are no more attacks on Saudi facilities or retaliation by the Saudis on Iran, the supply problem will not be be clear right away. The Saudis can still deliver from reserves for a few weeks but if the outage runs to months as industry sources are now predicting, we can expect crude prices to keep rising until there is relable evidence that output will be restored.

It’s Time to End The West’s Role in ‘Worst Humanitarian Crisis on the Planet’

Macron’s Amazon fires antics are just a globalist effort to oust Bolsonaro

International political opponents of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and their media allies are cynically exploiting and exaggerating the impact of the fires in the Amazon to demonize the ‘Trump of the Tropics’.

The plight of the Brazilian rainforest hasn’t dominated the international headlines to the current extent since the late 1980s heyday of Sting earnestly pleading for donations while standing alongside impassive tribal chiefs.

Leonardo Di Caprio, Madonna, and Cristiano Ronaldo have taken to social media to sound alarm about the burning “lungs of the world” that produce “20 percent of Earth’s oxygen.”

Emmanuel Macron not only stated the same claims in his own tweet, but made the “international crisis” of the Amazon fires the last-minute headline theme of his home G7 summit, urging the world to #ActFortheAmazon, as the leaders of the top Western powers pooled together $40 million in (rejected) donations.

Surely, something extraordinary is happening in Brazil?

Well, not really. First let’s clear out the straightforward myths. The Amazon does not produce 20 percent of the world’s oxygen, nor is it the “lungs” of anything, as it consumes as much of it as it creates. In the internet era it should be easy to debunk this within three minutes, without requiring special statements from NASA scientists.

Nor does it help to post decades-old pictures with fires from various places across the globe, which is something every person namechecked above has done. One assumes, particularly because of their boss’ stated dislike of ‘fake news’, that there must be someone on the French president’s staff who is able to perform a Google image search.

International opposition to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, dubbed “the Brazilian Trump” have spun a fake news story about the fires that according to mainstream media and establishment politicians are destroying the Amazonian rain forest. In fact the globalist carel are cynically exploiting and exaggerating the impact of the fires, started deliberately for completely legitimate reasons, in the Amazon to demonize the ‘Trump of the Tropics’.

The plight of the Brazilian rainforest hasn’t excited the showbusiness wankerati to the current extent since the late 1980s when former schoolteacher and rock star turned wannabe messiah Sting took to the airwaves earnestly pleading for donations to preserve the way of life of rain forest natives while standing alongside impassive tribal chiefs with unsold Police CDs inserted in their lower lips.

In response to the current crisis, Leonardo Di Caprio who flies round the world in his private jet to warn people of the dangers of burning carbon dioxide producing fuels, Madonna who still performs high kicking dance routines while wearing scanty outfits  in front of sad old men who fantasise about golden showers, and Cristiano Ronaldo an ageing football star and all round cunt, have taken to social media to sound the alarm about the burning “lungs of the world” that produce “20 percent of Earth’s oxygen.”

Emmanuel Macron not only stated the same claims in a speech at last weekend’s G7 summit, but made the “international crisis” of the Amazon fires the screaming headlinefor the world;s Suday papers, urging the world to #ActFortheAmazon, as the leaders of the top Western powers pledged $40 million in (rejected) donations (which Bolsonaro turned down, telling Macron, “You couldn’t even save Notre Dame.

Surely, something extraordinary is happening in Brazil isn’t it? you might well ask.

Well, no. It’s all bollocks. First let’s clear out the statistical lies. The Amazon does not produce 20 percent of the world’s oxygen, nor is it the “lungs” of anything, as it consumes as much oxygen as it creates. In the internet era it should be easy to debunk this within three minutes, without requiring special statements from NASA scientists. It’s basic fucking biology FFS, look up photosynthesis.

As for the propaganda pictires of raging fires lit by farmers burning crop stubble on land that might, just might, have once been rain forest but is noe under cultivation,, apart from many being decades old and showing far from raging fires  or from sites hundreds of miles from the Amazon and some not even on  the same continent, which is something every attention seeking has – been namechecked above has done. One assumes, particularly because of their boss’ stated dislike of ‘fake news’, that there must be someone on the French president’s staff who is able to perform a Google image search.

The whole Amazonian wildfires scare story is fake news , partly to whip up hysteria about climate change because nobody except university brainwashed wankers believes the Caron Dioxide fossil fuels bullshit any more, and partly to pave the way for a regime change coup in Brazil where President Bolsanaro is guilty of putting the interests of brazil’s people ahead of the interests of global corporations.

Brussels breaucrats in panic over Johnson’s tactics of taking Brexit to individual leaders.

While some Brexit supporters are furious that Boris Johnson’s initiative of meeting leaders of the EU’s main economic powers individually is some kind of betrayal and has moved us away from the likleyhood of a ‘no deal’ departure from the EU , this blog disagrees. Our opposition to the EU is not to our trading with the bloc, but to the surrender of sovereignty over our lawmaking process, border controls, defence, foreign and economic policies to Brussels. So long as we are leaving the EU and repatriating those things and control of our fisheries, agriculture and ability to negotiate our own treaties on trade, defence, migration and other areas of international relations we’re happy. Any deal that does not involve acceptance of the supremacy of EU law, uncontrolled immigration, a customs union (or an Irish backstop,) or accepting the EU’s right to negotiate treaties on our behalf is fine.

Boris Johnson seems to understand this, Theresa May did not. Her team, hamstrung by May’s belief that we could not leave without a deal, caved in to EU demands that we agree certain conditions before negotiations could begin. This put Britain in the position of a supplicant. Johnson, if his position is genuine, has shown he is prepared to lead the UK out of the Union without a deal and suddenly after months of insisting Theresa May’s  disastrous deal was the only one possible.

Now faced with the reality that we can leave without a deal, the French and Germans are suddenly wiling to negotiate. As Donald Trump said, in any negotiation the worst thing you can do is let the other party know you are unwilling to walk away without a deal.

Yesterday, after meeting Johnson, France’s Emmanuel Macron, up to now the most hardline pro-EU leader, has described the Brexit ball as now in the UK’s court. He said, while the bloc does not want a no-deal exit, it would be ready if it happened.

Florian Phillipot leader of the far-right The Patriots party, commented. “Kudos to Boris Johnson, whose will and resolve have helped the UK get out of the EU, “Ultra-Europeans are in distress because Brexit is finally happening. This goes to show that when you push back against threats and blackmail, you can get things done.”  ” he added.

Johnson, who has pledged to deliver Brexit no matter what, told the French president that he believed it was possible to agree a new deal before the October 31 deadline. He wants the hotly-contested Irish border backstop to be struck out of the current deal, which the EU has so far refused to renegotiate.

“Let’s get Brexit done, let’s get it done sensibly and pragmatically and in the interests of both sides and let’s not wait until October 31. Let’s get on now in deepening and intensifying the friendship and partnership between us,” he said.

Italy PM Giuseppe Conte resigns, launches blistering attack on deputy Matteo Salvini

In another huge blow to the efforts of the Brussels bureaucracy to create an illusion of solidarity among remaining EU member states in the run up to Brexit, Italy’s Prime Minister Guiseppe Conte has resigned, citing the behaviour of his Deputy Matteo Salvini the man who was prevented from assuming the leadership of Italy after his party won the most recent election, by Brussels’ undemocratic refusal to accept a Eurosceptic politician as leader of any member state.

Since then the Brussels elite has constantly interfered in Italy’s political and economic life, in a bid to prevent Salvini, who as leader of League, the largest party in the Italian legislature from carrying out their populist agenda. Salvini, the de facto political leader of Italy as Conte had no party backing him and no electoral mandate has been seeking confrontation with the EU principally over immigration and economic policies.

This development is certain to end the League / Five Star governimg coalition, resulting in a general election in which the hugely popular League is likely to win an overall majority. If that is the outcome Brussels will be powerless to prevent Salvini becoming Prime Minister and his party assuming overall control. And that would certainly result in Italy Leaving the European Single Currency system (the Euro,) as a step towards quitting the EU entirely. READ MORE at Vanguard News
