Delingpole: EU Elections are The Final Vampire Screech of the Dying Deep State

Posted by M. C. on May 24, 2019

The UK and Western Europe as we lovingly knew them are already dead, they just don’t know it.

I am afraid of what is arising in their wake. Is the future already there?

by James Delingpole

Here are the three things which have most shocked and disgusted (though not surprised) me about the European Elections.

They are all manifestations of the same problem: a bullying, corrupt, self-serving, dishonest, arrogant, politically correct, anti-democratic, left-liberal Establishment which is prepared to do almost anything to stop its entrenched powers being handed to the people.

Electoral Commission raids Brexit Party offices on a mission to seek out accounting irregularities 

The Electoral Commission is supposed to be a politically neutral organisation whose job is to ensure fair and honest practice during elections. In fact, it is quite outrageously Remain-biased and since the EU Referendum appears to have been abusing its powers to harass and intimidate Brexit backers and activists.

Its decision to raid the Brexit Party headquarters this week in search of accounting irregularities — it found none — prompted Nigel Farage to describe Britain’s political establishment as “rotten to the core.” I think Farage is right. You hardly need to be a conspiracy theorist to worry about Britain’s Deep State: its grubby fingerprints are over everything…

Milkshake attacks (and worse) on pro-Brexit candidates

Did you read all those shocking reports of Chuka Umunna, Anna Soubry, Professor AC Wailing, Alastair Campbell, Gary Lineker and sundry other Remoaner loons being doused in milkshake while campaigning to defy the democratic vote and keep Britain stuck in the EU?

Me neither, because they didn’t happen. All the ugliness in this nasty, brutish, short election campaign has derived from people on the Remain side of the argument. Independent campaigner Tommy Robinson has been attacked at least twice; UKIP’s Carl Benjamin was attacked four times; Nigel Farage was attacked two days ago.

As significant as the attacks themselves has been the response of Remainers, far too many of whom have either defending the attacks as a joke – or, in some cases, urging that they should be escalated to the use of half-bricks or acid

Manchester Police v Tommy Robinson

If you haven’t seen some of the shocking footage of Tommy Robinson’s experiences on the campaign trail in the North West of England, you should. Here is his account of how his campaign in Oldham was attacked at the weekend by “Muslim youths”, most wearing masks, throwing bottles and bricks. What’s most extraordinary is that this organised mob — effectively the Muslim equivalent of Antifa — was escorted by Manchester police towards the peaceful rally being held in a part of the city (by Robinson’s own account) he had deliberately chosen to avoid such confrontations.

Greater Manchester Police have issued a statement defending their decision:

It’s really important to understand that people have the opportunity to exercise their right to protest and to counter-protest. This is in line with everyone’s right to free speech and we do not have any powers to stop this from happening. It is a fundamental human right.

When we say free speech however, we certainly do not mean speech or actions that are full of hate. Hate will never, ever be tolerated, not only in Oldham, but in the whole of Greater Manchester and we will seek out those who think that this is acceptable and hold them to account.

As part of our policing operation last night, officers engaged with a group intent on going to Limeside. In line with our duty to minimise disruption to the local area as much as possible, officers walked with the group and sought to reduce any problems on the route they took.

That’s not what it looks like to me. Indeed, if the police didn’t strenuously deny it, one might almost get the impression that the police actually aided and abetted the confrontation by escorting a clearly violent and dangerous mob to a place where they should never have been allowed…

Farage & Gabbard – Lions of the Great Realignment – Gold Goats ‘n Guns

Posted by M. C. on May 17, 2019

There is a realignment coming in electoral politics. It began with Ron Paul in 2008 and has been building for more than a decade. We know this story well.

That realignment will be about restoring not just national sovereignty but also personal autonomy in a world the rulers of which are desperate to clamp down their control over.

The thing is I don’t think we’ve quite come to terms with the rapidity with which change comes. It builds slowly, simmering below the surface and then one day just explodes into a maelstrom of chaos.

This is where things stand in Britain with the betrayal of Brexit. It is also where things stand with Trump’s daily betrayal of his pledge to end the needless wars and regime change operations.

Tulsi Gabbard will collect a lot of voters sick to death of our foreign policy destroying the lives of millions, draining our spirit and emptying our pockets.

You can see it happening, slowly… and then all at once.

The signs of the chaos as we approach next week’s European Parliamentary elections were there if we were willing to look closely. More often than not, our being distracted or, worse, our normalcy bias keeps us ignorant of what’s happening…

Which brings me back to politics. As long as the political class maintains 1) the illusion of choice as to who are leaders are and 2) keep things running smoothly a small minority of us will complain, simmer and stew but we won’t be able to convince anyone else it’s worth upsetting the status quo.

We’ll stay below critical mass, until we don’t. And the important point here is that, like my goats, they can can act and vote perfectly normally one day and then in open revolt the next and you have a very small window of time to make the right decisions to save the situation.

The original Brexit vote was that opportunity for the power elite to get it through their thick skulls that Britons didn’t want to go where the EU was headed.

Theresa May, Dominic Grieve and the rest of those in the Westminster bubble refused to accept that they no longer had control over the situation. Theresa May like an autistic monkey keeps putting forth vote after vote to get her Withdrawal Treaty past a parliament that has no business still presiding over the country…

Trump is compromised because of his vanity and his weakness. There is not much hope going into 2020 unless Tulsi Gabbard catches fire soon and begins taking out contenders one by one.

More likely she is, like Ron Paul, setting the table for 2024 and a post-Trump world. I fear however it will be far too late for the U.S. by then. Both she and Farage, along with Salvini and many others across Europe, represent the push towards authenticity that will change the political landscape across the west for decades to come.

And that is what the great realignment I see happening is.

It isn’t about party or even principles. It is about coming together to fix the broken political system first and then working on solutions to specific problems later.

Here’s hoping Trump doesn’t destroy the world by mistake first.
