Brexit Passes, Cameron Resigns


I have no idea what it all means or what happens next.

The Beeb:

Prime Minister David Cameron is to step down by October after the UK voted to leave the European Union.

Speaking outside 10 Downing Street, he said he would attempt to “steady the ship” over the coming weeks and months but that “fresh leadership” was needed.

The PM had urged the country to vote Remain but was defeated by 52% to 48% despite London, Scotland and Northern Ireland backing staying in.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage hailed it as the UK’s “independence day”.
The pound fell to its lowest level against the dollar since 1985 as the markets reacted to the results.

I haven’t been following the Brexit story because I am generally uninterested in the internal politics of other states and countries. As far as British politics go I am vaguely aware that they use a parliamentary system with a prime minister instead of a president and their queens and kings don’t really have any power but they keep them around for ceremonies and stuff.

I know that Brexit is a non-binding referendum on whether Britain should leave the European Union which was supposed to unite western Europe into an economic superpower bigger than the United States but something something something and a lot of people are not happy.

I also know that Barack Obama and the rest of the globalist elites are opposed to Britain leaving the EU, and they labeled supporters of the referendum as a bunch of ignorant racists. So even if I didn’t know anything else that pretty much told me everything I really needed to know.

Roger Simon:

In a surprise, Leave won the Brexit referendum on whether to stay in the European Union by an equally surprising amount. British sovereignty won. David Cameron lost. Jeremy Corbyn lost. The EU lost. Bureaucrats lost. Angela Merkel lost. Barack Obama lost. Globalism lost. Authority figures almost everywhere lost. And, most of all, unlimited immigration lost.

So what happened to the vaunted British betting market that is almost invariably correct and was predicting by 80 percent a Remain victory? Or all those recent polls that were tilting Remain?

Answer: Those same elites had convinced each other they would win and therefore convinced the usual suspects—media, pollsters and, sadly, financial markets—that they were right. They were wrong. Watching them now on the BBC they still cannot comprehend what has happened. The peasants have revolted—oh no, oh no. There must be some mistake. Didn’t they get the memo? The sky would fall if they left the EU.

Earth to elites: Citizens of truly democratic countries don’t want unlimited immigration into their countries by people who couldn’t be less interested in democracy. They also don’t want to be governed by the rules and regulations of faceless bureaucrats whose not-so-hidden goals are power and riches for themselves and their friends. Simple, isn’t it?

This vote is of immense help to Donald Trump if he is smart enough to seize it properly and doesn’t bobble the ball. Many, probably most, Americans feel exactly the same as their brothers and sisters across the pond. They despise the same elites and want to save their country. Trump, now fortuitously in Scotland (I know—they voted Remain, but not in the numbers they were supposed to), should show his support. The UK is America’s closest ally. We should be the first to extend a hand, negotiate free trade, etc., and get her rolling again.

That most elite of presidents, Barack Obama, who opened his morally narcissistic mouth supporting the Remain side and warning the British people, as he is wont to do, that there would be “consequences” if they voted to leave the EU, is in no position to do anything, even if he wanted to. And he doesn’t.

Hillary Clinton is so elitist she practically defines the term. She was probably up all night figuring out what to do about the situation. I have a suggestion—move to Brussels.

Meanwhile, Trump should take up the gauntlet for the U.S. and the UK now. Why wait? Act like the president—we could use one. Donald has a natural ally in the leading Leave spokesperson conservative Boris Johnson. The two men are said to be similar and in many ways they are.

Long live the Anglosphere. Remember the Magna Carta and all that. This is a day truly to celebrate, even if stock markets are crashing around the world. They’ll come back. Look on it as a buying opportunity. A bubble has broken, but it isn’t a stock bubble. It’s a human bubble consisting of elites who seek to govern in a manner not all that distant from Comrade Lenin, just hiding under a phony mask of bureaucratic democracy. They’ve taken a big body blow from the citizens of England. Churchill would be proud. Time for America to follow suit.

The peasants are revolting. Don’t expect the people in charge to give up easily.

    Ironically it’s almost the 4th of July:

    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America,

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

    That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

  12. Venus says:

    Roger Simon gets it almost right but his irrational hatred of Trump causes him to throw in a few jabs — Dude won the nomination against everyone’s predictions (including Roger Simon’s) with not just 1237, but 1500 proving they all understimated him and the mood of the country, yet still Simon has to say “if Trump is smart.”
    Does he really think Trump is in Scotland right now by chance?
    Hacks never learn.

  13. Dora says:

    Uh-Oh. Uncle Joe has a warning.

    Scotland has fallen a long way from William Wallace.

    They can have our freedom in exchange for welfare!!!

    • blowme0bama says:

      The anti-authoritarian ones left long ago.

      • Lulu says:

        They deported most of them. Northern Ireland, North America, Australia and New Zealand got them as indentured servants or convicts. Some in Canada got land from Napoleonic war service (drafted in Islay) like my husband’s family in Ontario then they left there too. Scotland really is a diaspora.

  15. DeniseVB says:

    I feel bad for the Bernie supporters, he sold them out. Welcome to my 2008.

  16. Dora says:

    Meanwhile, back to the campaign.

  17. DeniseVB says:

    True story.

  18. Venus says:

    My mother is so happy — the EU was sold as merely a “free trade zone” — but like all elite lies, it was really just warming the water to boil the frog, gobbling up power, control and money to the select few and leaving the people in poverty. Hand to God,I saw one of these fops last night explaining why “unlimited immigration” is a GOOD thing because “the immigrants have a higher employment level than the domestic workers” — duh, because they are taking the citizens’ jobs at lower wages. That didn’t occur to this dumbass.

    Mom and I are proud of the British today.

    • taw46 says:

      I am happy, too. That is exactly how it was sold and started out, as all about trade. I mentioned before, I was in Greece a lot in the 80’s, my friends there were against it, they knew exactly what would be coming down the road. So happy for the Brits and for freedom. May it come to other countries in Europe.

    • DandyTIger says:

      That’s it in a nutshell. And people noticed. A great day for the world.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Team Remain were all the sleazy globalists like Soros, Obama, Hillary ad nauseum, I think Leave was the right decision for the people of the UK.

  19. Dora says:

    This is just so wrong. Kasich could very well have blood on his hands because of this decision!

    • DeniseVB says:

      Free speech/protest zones are OUTSIDE the conventions, otherwise you’re putting many high profile delegate politicians, as well as candidates and their families, at great risk.

      They’re even building a wall around the Dem convention in Philly to keep the riff raff , aka disgruntled Bernie supporters, away.

      • Dora says:

        I will never think of Kasich the same way again. Even though I didn’t always agree with him, I always thought he was a pretty nice guy. I was wrong. He is definitely not!

        • Anthony says:

          Despite warnings from a friend who lives in Ohio, I felt similarly to you about him at first. During the course of the primary contest, he revealed himself to be a bottom-feeding, narcissistic suck-up who would kiss anybody’s ass for more media time. He needs to be charged with whatever laws there are about inciting violence and endangering the wellbeing of others. Somehow, this has a Cruz/Romney stench emanating from it

          • Dora says:

            I thought I detected a whiff of that myself.

          • Anthony says:

            So I can guess I wasn’t imagining it too…

          • DeniseVB says:

            Wouldn’t the Secret Service have the final say on who’s allowed INSIDE the convention center? The situation would be a replay of Chicago when Trump had to cancel that rally. Why invite trouble?

          • Anthony says:

            The SS would indeed have the final say, but the power of the GOPe reaches deeper than we might realize. Coupled with the DOJ who put pressure on local police to stand down if protestors got violent in the Cali rally, I don’t think the SS has a chance

          • Constance says:

            I have confidence that Trump can handle it, he seems to be able to smell political opportunity. Trump might need to let the Republican Powers That Be lose control of the convention by inviting riff raff to the party and then swoop in like the only adult in the room and impose order on the proceedings. Another chance to look like a hero.

        • foxyladi14 says:


      • Constance says:

        They need a wall. The Bernieites are animals and have no intention of supporting Hillary the establishment pick.

    • helenk3 says:

      see my comment down post. this does not look good and is definitely not the way America handles elections

    • mcnorman says:

      Damn, another village idiot running amok.

    • Ann says:

      The secret service can put the kibosh on that nonsense, no?

      Trump must have completely frozen out Kasich. Apparently, Johnnie is a tad unhappy about that.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Been doing a little digging, something about your link seemed strange. It could be a fake news site (despite 3.5k shares?!? which threw me at first). Also, Kaisch supports “inclusion” was another red flag. Hope it’s a fake story, I sent it out to some of the Trump supporters on Twitter, we’ll see😀

      The “official” NYT political site link is different from yours, dug around that site, and nothing came up with this story. Fine line between fake but true NYT, LOL. I never go to the real NYT news sites for news.

          • Jadzia says:

            I am about as far as possible from an economics expert, BUT it seems to me that today’s market losses are probably attributable to the fact that Brexit was a SURPRISE. I was reading polls yesterday saying that Remain was going to win. Wouldn’t it make more sense to wait at least a few weeks before calling this an economic catastrophe?

          • blowme0bama says:

            Mam, the Market is irrational. The only thing that makes a market move is some asshole with a lot of money wants to see something go up or go down.

            Dow was up 200+ yesterday, down around 400 a few minutes ago, and who knows where by next week.

            They’ll throw a hissy fit for a session or two with the talking heads blabbing away, and then it will be on to the next thing.

          • Constance says:

            Right now the DOW is 17,435. It’s down 3.2% and was last at this level on May 18th 2016 (last month). Stock markets are often down on Fridays and TPTB predicted the market to be down 5% today. It doesn’t look that bad to me, I would expect a big rise on Monday morning. It’s really not even a good buy opportunity.

          • Lulu says:

            It is a market correction. Stuff was too high priced. Good day and excuse for some profit taking. The screaming and hair pulling of the White House and their butt sniffing media is funny.

      I get up to pee at 3am. I found out the upside to that by catching the results and Cameron’s swan song when I turned on the droning news to fall back to sleep with. So I had a good nap.😀 I do like my news *live* before they’re turned into partisan sound bites.

  24. Jadzia says:

    I’m beyond delighted.

    • Anthony says:

      France and Italy demanding same from what I hear. Anything you can tell us about that? Would love to know what French media is saying about this

      • Jadzia says:

        “France” is not demanding the same–it’s the Front National that wants a referendum. And they can’t pull more than 35% under the most favorable of circumstances. I can’t imagine France voting to leave (although I would love it if we did).

        • Anthony says:

          Thanks for the clarification. It was an FB post that I didn’t click to link to the original article. I *knew* it sounded too good to be true… Thanks again, Jadzia.

          • Jadzia says:

            I hope I didn’t sound condescending! That wasn’t my intention. But yeah, I think the same people (in France) who never liked the EU still don’t like the EU, but the other 2/3 of the population hasn’t been inspired to suddenly rise up or anything like that.

        • Anthony says:

          Thats whats so frightening – they’re acting like everyone is going to buy their line of shit without question. Could be for any number of reasons, my guess is desperation and fear of whats going to become of the progressive Dems after they lose the election

          • blowme0bama says:

            It’s the only tool in their bag. Divide and point at the oppressor. People see they’re the oppressor now, but it’s the only thing they know how to do.

          • blowme0bama says:

            What’s going to happen to the progs is Trump is going to cut their fucking money. RICO Soros and affiliated sowers of political violence.

          • Anthony says:

            I hope you’re right about that. The NWO thingy has tentacles that reach back to the 1980’s, and it seems to now include several nations. Soros, Ayers, MoveOn, etc are pretty powerful lobbyists, and I wonder if it will take more than one POTUS and several terms to eliminate their control

          • blowme0bama says:

            I think 2 terms can clean them out.

            A RICO prosecution, which will include their myriad whack-a-mole entities, will take care of all the money. Without that, they wither. No overarching “organizing for America” rabble rousers to direct them.

            When money dries up, they can’t influence local elections and things like school boards come to reflect the communities they represent. Destroy the Dept. of Education – take federal $ out of it. No sane community is going to support indoctrinating their children into a world where boys don’t know they’re boys and girls don’t know they’re girls, or they’re told their history is hateful and should be destroyed. That’s only possible where someone is insulated from the people who are affected by it.

        • DeniseVB says:

          That’s okay, you don’t have to vote for Trump, which is a vote for Hillary. Though I do think our government is a bigger con artist than private business. One of my kids is a fed, and he gets kicked in the ass all the time answering to DHS. My other kid has a business in Brooklyn and gets kicked in the teeth by the City of New York all the time if she makes too much money, her rent and taxes go UP. She can’t get ahead. The only kid I have that does benefit from tax dollars, is my Special Greg. We keep him at home for the pittance of SSI, which saves my state about 80k a year.

          Special Greg is a Yuuuuge Trump supporter, just saying😉

    What a great morning. I do not have cirrhossis or liver cancer and Brexit won. Monster is calling me man servent and informing me I am her least favorite uncle on planet earth. Hound from hell is in the bay window fighting with a cat outsude. Second time different doctors told me my liver was fucked. I actually had begun the transplant process last time without biopsy. Meaningless tests on heart. I was very put off they seemed eager. Too eager. I have pig valves that are 47 years old. They are supposed to last max 10 years. Cardiac patients are not normally candidates. I removed myself. No way I was taking an organ over a kid. No lie get this 47 years ago yesterday I flatlined. Explains why I am stupid. Whole lack of oxygen. Honestly it seems like yearsthere has been this dark cloud. My ticker was not heavy with fears for myself. It was laden with dread for the crud. I see in her a passing of a baton. I am incomplete but I believe she is a better person than I. I watched my college friends fall under the nobama spell. It was surreal. They have this polluted sense of reality. All about love. GAG. Kids go to 10,000 progressive kindergarten and they are all super special. No they are entitled brats. Pup would never be rude.
    Anyhow I did schedule my results to coincide with liver results, but Brexit makes it easier to believe. She has taken ballet for 7 years. No boobs yet but she is very defined. Freaked me out muslim men taking her picture at the pool. Had I a bat. I was born a defect but I was a good looking bloke with my shirt on I look like Frankenstein. It is what it is. How many throw away children get a great gay uncle who endured open heart. I am so proud of who she is. BREXIT makes today all the better. I feel hopeful.

        It seems that the EU technocrats and the British people were playing liar’s poker with each other. The Brit’s lied their little hearts out to pollsters and the EU technocrats (which includes that dopey Obama arse-licker Cameron) believed them. Remember that the EU’s drunk old fool Junker humiliated Cameron just a few months ago over no rule negotiating, that the EU was gonna treat the UK like a milk cow for taxes, fines, assessments, etc to pay for all the EU’s stupid shit, and hey we want your military and navy turned over to Brussels but you still get to pay for it.

      Boston Latin is the premier exam school in the Boston Public School system. The progs have been on the school’s case for decades because not enough students of color pass the exam. Once you’re there, there are high standards to meet to stay there. The current headmaster has been at the school for a long time. My guess is he’s just tired of all of the crap. This latest accusation of not taking racism seriously enough is just more of the same. If the progs manage to lower the standards at the school in the interest of “diversity”, the losers will be the students of color. No one with a diploma from Boston Latin has ever been tagged as “affirmative action”. If any kid managed to get in and stay in, it was because he or she deserved to be there on merit alone. Colleges know that, and kids, particularly those of color, are sought out by top notch colleges. Lowering the standards will lower the value of a diploma from BLS for all of the kids.

        I don’t think that this is scaremongering. I think it is reality for many that immigration needs to be controlled. The Remains are treating this as if the sky were falling.

        The “Leave” campaign focused a lot of their rhetoric on anti-immigrant sentiment that might sound familiar: Brexit supporters argued the borders weren’t secure and that immigrants coming in from the EU were sucking public services dry and taking jobs.
        Pro-Brexit campaigners have proposed a “points-based” immigration policy modeled after Australia, which rewards visa eligibility to prospective immigrants based on whether their job skills are valuable to the economy.
        Australia, for example, gives higher “points” to chefs, mechanics, architects and nurses, CNN reported.

          Ignoring the citizen’s concerns is never a good thing. Are the globalists listening or do they require another wollop?

            They’re like #NeverTrump. They’ll just yell / insult us more until we come around to their way of thinking.

          • blowme0bama says:

            So, yes, another wallop is in order, followed by another, and another, and another.

            Globalists live in a different and special world. Don’t waste time on them. Step over them and establish a world that works for you and most other hard working middle class. We regular people don’t need their permission or their understanding which is good because no matter how hard we try we will never get it.

          Canada has the same system. Yet oddly I’ve never heard that entire country called racist.

      LOL. We bathe in the tears of our enemies.

      London and Scotland can’t feed themselves. Literally. Scotland’s main export is people. They still leave by droves for even a modest future. London is now a third world shithole with a few monuments which haven’t been burned or pulled down by their ISIS residents and imans. Get ready for both to be starved into submission. “Bennies” are going to be cut to make them work or leave. Get ready for what the Brits do best.

    what is your take on california senate bill 1146?
    harm religious collage or over reaction? Could it spread to other states?

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      California politics is too depressing to think about.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Loved my 6 years in Southern California, couldn’t wait to move back to Virginia in the late 70’s. Not only did I miss my season changes, but the safety from the aholes from the border wetbacks that kept trying to rob us. THE 70’s. In Coronado, the Beverly Hills of San Diego. Good Grief, nothing has changed in 40 years ?

        I think it was the time we caught someone robbing our car, hubby chased after him while I called 911, hubby got arrested (and released) because he grabbed his military swagger stick in his chase. Oooh, weapon. Pedro ran free with our case of cola.

        • Jadzia says:

          I remember the first time I visited (beautiful) San Diego, being shocked by the signs on the highway that basically look like “Deer Crossing” signs except the symbols are of people running over the border.

    As far as British politics go I am vaguely aware that they use a parliamentary system with a prime minister instead of a president and their queens and kings don’t really have any power but they keep them around for ceremonies and stuff.

    Not quite. The British PM is a Head of Government, not a Head of State (like the President). That’s one notch lower in the diplomatic pecking order. The Queen is the British Head of State (and also the Head of State of the Commonwealth countries, which ticks my Canadian political scientist wife off to no end). The Queen actually does have some power. The Queen and the Prince of Wales can veto Acts of Parliament (much like the President), only there is no provision for Parliament to override such a veto and those vetoes are, traditionally, secret . It has long been assumed that this is some sort of quaint historic relic that isn’t applicable in modern times, but that turns out not to have been the case:

    Note that one of the bills the Queen vetoed would have stripped her of the power to commit British military forces by transferring that power to Parliament. I’d say that the authority to wage war on one’s personal initiative is pretty substantial. After all, as Mao once observed, “Power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”:

    In Commonwealth countries, both the Queen and the Governor-General (who is appointed by the Queen) have this power. See:

    Like you, I don’t think the bizarre governmental systems of other countries are any of my business, as long as they don’t involve genocide or gross human rights violations. My only thought on the matter is that I am eternally grateful to Thomas Jefferson (and James Madison, of course).

    As for the Brexit itself, I hope someone sent Angela Merkel a copy of this:
