An American Coup D'etat?

This has gotten completely out of control. I never thought I would see our country's politics reduced to the degrading levels of a Banan...

May Goes

Perhaps the most clueless modern day British PM, Theresa May, has called it quits.

Now, of course, so I've been told by some, she was a pretty good Home Secretary; she, however, was way out of her depth as PM. Bluntly put, she could have been "simply marvelous" in everything else she did and said, but her catastrophic handling of Brexit will overshadow any and all possible positive achievement. She will be remembered as the PM who colluded with the British Deep State, mainstream media, and the lefty lunatics of Europe to attempt to defy the British people's will. She had been, of course, a "Remainer,"along with her almost equally as hapless predecessor, but vowed to comply with the voters' mandate. She did not. She was either completely idiotic in her negotiating a sailing tack for exit, deceptive, or quite simply an obstructionist when it came to actually carrying out that exit from the horrid EU.

She was akin to a championship poker player who folds while holding a Royal Flush.

The UK had the upper hand.

All the PM had to do was announce that the UK would leave, and would discuss any legacy issues, e.g., Irish border, expat workers, rules on the curvature of bananas, afterwards. That was it, There was not a damn thing the EU could have done about it without risk of even more grievous harm to the EU. Instead, she got herself into "negotiating," actually seeking the EU's permission to leave. It was insane. It showed that she was, like so many other politicians around the world, a captive to the Globalist Vision, a vision increasingly rejected by voters all over the world.

She needs to go away ASAP--I, however, would like to see an investigation into her possible role in the Russian Collusion hoax--and be replaced by somebody who actually believes that the British people are worth saving and that they know what they want.

Go!

  1. Whenever the subject of Brexit comes up, the remain argument is to complain about what hardships the British will face should they leave the EU, it’s better to stay.

    I will quip that I think paying more for things is on the minor end of what kind of hardships the British people have endured in order to retain their sovereignty.

  2. I don't quite know how brexit imploded, but I was pretty certain that it would. The forces there are too powerful for simple democracy to break.

  3. Tonight, I was listening to the Mark Levin Show on WLS-AM. The news reader at the half hour/hour news said that she was stepping down, " after leading the UK's exit from the EU". He said it like he believed it!

  4. Remember, she was the PM of the country to whom America said "We're leaving". It's in their culture to need permission.

  6. At least May got Brexit put off until October. This is a good thing, as my expenses were far too high this spring to take advantage of the weaker Pound. Come Fall, though....

    I've been watching the GBP/EUR rates for a while now, and it appears to mirror the status of the UK and EU to some degree. I suspect that the EURO will have the greater downside to the deal (or lack of one).

    Over a thousand years of their history would suggest otherwise.

    1. Sadly that wonderful history of Bulldog grit virtually came to an end with generations of the best & bravest British young men being sacrificed as cannon-fodder in WWI, and WWII wiped out many more.

      The meek inherited Great Britain; now it's not so great anymore.

  8. Politicians seem to think they can solve anything by talking. Lure them into talking, and they are trapped by their own mindset.

  9. Although, the witch gets credit for her step n' fetchit routine, which revealed for all to see, again, that Kraut leadership is as toxic as it has always been, whether sprouted in West Germany, or East Germany, they stink! Now let's see what the German people will do with the Islamist Reich Angela and her minions have re-created on the Continent! Ach du lieber Himmel!

  10. It is worth remembering what the people of the UK did in that long-ago referendum. 37% voted to Leave the EU; 35% voted to Remain; 28% chose not to vote. Bottom line -- the UK is a House Divided.

    Personal view -- those who wanted to separate from the EU had a great opportunity to take their narrow victory in the referendum and proselytize among the undecided and those who voted for the status quo. Instead, they ripped a leaf out of Barry Soetero's book and went all triumphalist -- We Won. Not smart.

    And while I do not wish to say anything favorable about the incompetent Mrs. May (Can I say that? She is a woman, after all), she faced an equally divided -- and equally incompetent -- group of Members of Parliament. Mrs. May's Conservative Party has been a minority government, dependent for its existence on the support of a Northern Ireland Party. This made the way forward fraught because of the issue of the land border between Northern Ireland and the EU (Irish Republic). That issue had not been addressed seriously prior to the referendum -- and given the parlous state of education in the UK, it is a reasonable guess that many of the people in England who voted Leave never knew or had forgotten that Northern Ireland was part of the UK.

    So the situation was a mess. Mrs. May made it worse. Now the whole Westminster clique proved that they are worthless. Not a good situation from any perspective.

    1. Alternate analysis:

      Some feared that Brexit would deeply affect their business, and voted against to protect themselves. Meanwhile, the other side decided that they'd had enough of Brussels' mandates, and feel that Brexit would improve their lives.

      Sitting on a fence, as May has attempted to do, is the worst of both.

      Considering that regulation ought to be viewed as a tax, from an economics perspective, it would appear that the Brexit faction actually has the better case.

    Those of us who voted leave didn't do a lot of thinking about Northern Ireland. Why should we? They, and it, are part of the UK. Of course, it wasn't a problem till the EU and their Irish puppet made it a problem. They should just fix it.

    1. Why is it a problem?
      Step 1) Exit the EU
      Step 2) Figure out if there's stuff to clean up

      What the UK and the EU do after the break up is totally up to the UK and the EU individually, no?

    Yup! Within living memory, the problems English rulers historically created in Ireland resulted in a nearly-successful attack on the life of a UK Prime Minister, among other violence in Ireland & England. Fortunately, that was all brought under control and the border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland (UK) was opened. Let's hope that one of the unintended consequences of Brexit is not a resumption of hostilities.

    Personal view: Brexit is not that important because (a) the EU will collapse anyway because of its internal contradictions, and (b) most of the UK's problems always were home-grown and only conveniently blamed on the EU. But Good Lord! The clowns in Westminster really have made a dog's breakfast of Brexit! And while May goes, those clowns are still ruling the UK. Unfortunately, they are not Leaving.

    1. The Irish created most of those problems for themselves throughout history. No sympathy from me.

      May was a use home secretary, combining incompetence with authoritarianism.

      Brexit will work out OK in the end.

      It's the British way - start off rubbish and get better!

    "the border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland (UK) was opened"

    This bordered has never been closed. It has been subject to controls, but basically, people and vehicles moved across without problem. I can even remember going ashore from a RN frigate for a few beers in an Irish town - in the 1960s. No controls of any sort.

    The Irish government is risking arrangements that are of great benefit to their people.

    1. Wasn't that before the last set of "Troubles"? 1972 might've been a lot different. OTH, the welcome the Ark Royal and escorts received in Pensacola, FL was very good (based on 8-9 yr-old memories of Brit sailors in the streets with big smiles on their faces).

    2. That was ~1972, but might've been -1 year to +2 years.

  16. The British police strongly disagree that May was a good Home Secretary. She forced them to abandon community policing and to stand back and do nothing while Muslims misbehaved and raped and killed at will. They are beyond happy that she is gone.

  18. Well, it's the decade of the woman, so they had to pick a woman to lead them regardless of ability. Thatcher, the greatest PM since Churchill weeps.
