    Default Rekindling An Old Love Affair



    President Reagan and then-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher got together and put an end to the Soviet Union. I like to think rekindling the love affair between the UK and the U.S. will put an end to the EU.


    Trump, UK's Boris Johnson to meet on sidelines of G-7 summit

    Way back when in 1993 when the Maastricht Treaty legitimated the European Union I was convinced the EU would implode in 10 years. I missed the mark by 16 years. Happily, the end is near.

    One reminder of a dark chapter in the EU’s sordid love affair with the New World Order crowd. It was much like Hitler’s armies sweeping across Europe when President Clinton’s bunghole buddy, Tony Blair, had a good chance of becoming the president of the European Union.

    Blair never got the job. At the time I felt more sorry for Bubba than I did for Blair. What is a global government guy supposed to do when fate refuses to cooperate?

    Brexit is taking shape:

    U.S. President Donald Trump and Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson have predicted “fantastic mini-deals” and “a very big trade deal” after Brexit at a G7 meeting, with the American saying he believes the Tory MP is “the right man” to deliver it.

    “He needs no advice. He’s the right man for the job, I’ve been saying that for a long time,” the American leader told reporters when asked if he had any advice for his British counterpart at a meeting on the sidelines of the G7 summit in France.

    “Didn’t make your predecessor very happy,” he added in reference to Theresa May, looking across the table to Johnson with a grin, “but I’ve been saying that for a long time. He’s the right man for the job.”

    “You’re on message there!” joked the British prime minister, winning a laugh from the American delegation.

    Queen Elizabeth has approved Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s request to suspend Parliament from early September to October 14 — just before the Brexit deadline.

    In taking the controversial step of advising the Queen to call a halt to Parliament, Johnson has shortened the amount of time lawmakers have to oppose his no-deal Brexit plans to leave the European Union.

    Halting Parliament is known as “proroguing.” It is a power that rests with the Queen, and is carried out on the advice of the prime minister, the BBC explains. But, in doing so, it reduces the influence of Members of Parliament (MPs).

    Johnson proposed that Parliament be suspended from early September until October 14, when it would return to hear the Queen’s speech of new legislation and signal a new Parliamentary sitting. Johnson wrote that he wanted the Queen’s speech “to bring forward a new bold and ambitious domestic legislative agenda for the renewal of our country after Brexit.”

    The suspension now only gives MPs opposed to Johnson a couple of weeks before the U.K. is set to leave the EU. (Furthermore, MPs will have only just returned from their summer break on September 3.)

    At the moment, the U.K. will leave the EU without a deal. Some of those in favor of leaving want to do so only with a deal, while others hoping to remain in the EU see any delay as a chance to avoid pulling out altogether. Johnson was elected as leader of the Conservative Party and therefore became prime minister on the grounds of leaving on the October 31 date, whatever the outcome of any new talks.

    A Privy Council meeting confirming the move is said to have taken place at Balmoral, where the Queen is based during her summer and early autumn break.

    As near as I understand the UK’s parliament Brexit’s demise is at hand:

    It all goes to underline that the British public is with Johnson, they love what he is doing to put the squeeze to the European Union, they know that President Trump has Boris Johnson's back, and they wants to 'get on with it' with Brexit. The Tories are now soaring in the polls and should beat handily any leftist seeking to overturn the results of the Brexit referendum.

    I am betting on BOJO because he does not have UK judges torpedoing him the way our activist federal judges sink President Trump’s policies at every opportunity.

    The UK is deeply divided over Brexit.

    Do you read the news? Parliament gave Boris a very hard time.

    But the real reason I am replying is that Nigel is in Putin's pocket, same one Trump is in.

    I am pretty sure UK voters do not want to rekindle a love affair with an old hag:

    Hillary Clinton is back, and so is Chris Steele, this time in the United Kingdom. They are no less than implying that current Conservative (Tory) Prime Minister Boris Johnson is a Russian plant. And it’s no mistake that these allegations are being made just before a U.K. general election on December 12 that will decide the fate of Brexit.

    Britain is also in increasing lockstep with the United States on issues such as China's technological interference, declaring its intention to ban Huawei from future 5G network development.

    The love affair appears to be in lockstep:

    I understand Great Britain’s loyalty to its former Crown Colony, but I would not take in anybody from Hong Kong until they prove beyond a doubt they are not advocating democracy:


    Meanwhile, some American policymakers are actively considering similar measures for Hong Kong's political refugees.

    Default This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

    Great Britain interfering. They're going to hurt themselves. Look how big Russia is.
    as much as you want to believe so. It can't all possibly be governed.
