Brexit and Norway: What to Avoid


NINTCHDBPICT000246785102

The pseudonymous writer Fjordman had his identity outed because the crazy mass-murderer Anders Breivik admired and cherry-picked Fjordman’s writings. Breivik’s admiration led the Norwegian authorities to accuse the famous counterjihadist as an accomplice by association. Of course Fjordman was exonerated of all suspicion much to the contempt of all European Leftist Multiculturalists. The Multiculturalists had cast so much disdain onto Fjordman that he fled his homeland Norway over death threats for a while. That was a while ago so I am uncertain of his current living conditions. HOWEVER, I am quite pleased he is still writing.

 

I found a recent Fjordman essay at the Gatestone Institute. The essay analyzes the choices the UK faces after Brexit and lists Norway and Switzerland’s non-EU membership as horrible models to follow.

Brexit and Norway: What to Avoid

  • “[Britain wants] to be like Switzerland but they don’t know that Switzerland has to pay an enormous amount to the EU… They will have to accept the free movement of people and pay high fees and accept some laws which they would have no influence on.” — Daniel Pedroletti, president of the Swiss community group New Helvetic Society London.

 

  • Norway is the only country that has adopted all EU directives before their deadline. Norway, which is supposedly not a member of the EU, thus implements EU rules and regulations more obediently than do the founding members France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

 

  • Most of Norway’s laws are currently written by bureaucrats in Brussels, not by elected parliamentarians in Norway.

 

  • The citizens of Norway rejected membership in the EU, twice. Opinion polls today show that a very large majority of Norwegians are against membership in the EU. Despite this, the nation’s politicians have made the country more or less a member of the EU, only without any influence or voting rights — in opposition to the popular will, and possibly also in violation of the country’s Constitution.

 

  • The British should study the case of Norway closely. But mainly as a negative example of what to avoid.

 

On June 23, 2016, 51.9% of the voters in the United Kingdom voted for leaving the European Union (EU). The turnout was high, and the British referendum gained great international attention. Marine Le Pen, leader of France’s National Front, praised the result, calling Brexit “the most important moment since the fall of the Berlin Wall.” Le Pen said that if she wins France’s 2017 presidential election she would call a referendum on leaving the EU.

 

Nigel Farage stepped down as leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) shortly after winning the historic vote. Many death threats against him and his family from supporters of the EU reportedly affected his decision.

 

The complicated divorce process between the UK and the EU could take years of negotiations. Some people have looked to Switzerland and Norway, two of the wealthiest countries in Europe, as possible models to follow, yet both maintain a close cooperation with the EU. There are also concerns in Switzerland and Norway about how Brexit will impact their own relationship with the EU.

 

Daniel Pedroletti, president of the Swiss community group New Helvetic Society London, says there is “a big misunderstanding” in Britain surrounding Switzerland’s position:

 

“They want to be like Switzerland but they don’t know that Switzerland has to pay an enormous amount to the EU and accept the laws without being an influence [on them].

 

“They don’t realize that if they want a similar agreement they will have to accept the free movement of people and pay high fees and accept some laws which they would have no influence on.”

 

Though not a full member of the EU, Switzerland has over 120 bilateral agreements in place with the bloc — its main trading partner.

 

Nigel Farage does not want Britain to emulate Norway’s deal with the EU. It is terrible, he says. The Norwegian people rejected membership in the EU. Yet the Norwegian Parliament (Stortinget) has “deceived the people” and got Norway into a very bad agreement with the EU, according to Farage.

 

Norwegians voted against joining the European Community/European Union twice, in 1972 and in 1994. After the 1994 referendum, the country’s political leaders designed a close association deal with the EU. This is the EEA Agreement, known as the EØS Agreement in Norwegian. This does not cover common agriculture and fisheries policies. Control over natural resources is sensitive in a country with a long coastline plus major offshore deposits of oil and natural gas. Yet apart from a few such exceptions, Norway in reality became an associate member of the EU after 1994. EEA membership requires the free movement of persons, services, goods and capital with the EU. Norway is also a part of the open-borders Schengen Agreement, which has severely weakened checking migrants and asylum seekers across much of Europe.

 

Statistics from 2016 show that of all the 31 countries in the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA), Norway is the only country that has adopted all EU directives before their deadline. Norway retained its top position for the third year in a row. Its two fellow EEA countries, Iceland and Liechtenstein, were the worst at implementing directives. Norway, which is supposedly not a member of the EU, thus implements EU rules and regulations more obediently than do the founding members France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. This may surprise people who view Norway’s relationship with the EU as something to emulate.

 

Most of Norway’s laws are currently written by bureaucrats in Brussels, not by elected parliamentarians in Norway. Some scholars warn that the transfer of power to the EU is so great that it violates Norway’s Constitution and seriously undermines the democratic system.

In June 2016, the Norwegian Parliament voted overwhelmingly to attach the nation to the EU’s financial supervision. Critics decried this as the “biggest concession of sovereignty” in many years. With a vote of 136 in favor and 29 against, Parliament approved a bill that would tie Norway’s regulation of financial and insurance institutions to EU rules. Center Party leader Trygve Slagsvold Vedum opposed the bill and warned that it was “a circumvention of the Constitution.” The group “No to the EU” stated that Parliament had gone directly against the will of the people by weakening national sovereignty. An opinion poll showed just 26 percent of Norwegians supported the plan to tie Norway to the EU’s financial oversight.

 

The citizens of Norway have rejected membership in the EU, twice. Public opinion has been consistently against membership for decades. Opinion polls today show that a very large majority of Norwegians are against membership in the EU. Despite this, the nation’s politicians have made the country more or less a member of the EU, only without any influence or voting rights. The politicians have done this in opposition to the popular will, and possibly also in violation of the country’s Constitution.

 

Britain is a larger country with a much bigger economy than Norway. This will give it a stronger position in negotiations with the EU and others. However, it would be a mistake not to learn from the experiences of other nations. When shaping their future relationship with the EU, the British should study the case of Norway closely. But mainly as a negative example of what to avoid.

The Evil Empire Reborn


2nd Treatise of Govt. John Locke 1689 quote

Due to limitations on free speech, telling people they must accept the foreign culture of refugees, accept Islamic Sharia in their Justice system and the governance of unelected oligarchical elites over the people; The European Union is becoming more despotic than representatively democratic. An essay by Fjordman believes this is evidence the EU is becoming the new Evil Empire.

 

U.S. President Ronald Reagan angered many in 1983 when he dubbed the Soviet Union the “evil empire.” Yet he was telling the truth. It was an Evil Empire. The European Union is the Evil Empire reborn. It increasingly resembles a political mafia, with threats and blackmail. Yet U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama actively supports the new Evil Empire. He even intervened in the British campaign in 2016 and encouraged Britain to remain in the EU. –Fjordman

Evil Empire Reborn - euss rimmigrants

Modern Multicultural European Union

 

The Czech politician Vera Jourová is the European Union’s Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality in the Juncker Commission. In October 2015, Commissioner Jourová indicated that the EU will clamp down even harder on so-called “hate speech” directed against immigrants:

 

“If freedom of expression is one of the building blocks of a democratic society, hate speech on the other hand, is a blatant violation of that freedom. It must be severely punished. As some of you noted, over the past few weeks, we have witnessed a lot of solidarity towards refugees. But we have seen a surge of xenophobic hate speech. Some of you advocated enrolling the help of online intermediaries such as Google or Facebook to take down hate speech from the web. Other participants rather underlined promoting the use of counter-narratives. You also highlighted the need for clearer procedures to prosecute those who spread hate speech online. I was pleased to hear media and Internet providers’ experiences and to hear their commitment to work with us. I fully agree with you on these lines of action. As was said this morning, Internet knows no borders. I intend to bring together IT companies, business, national authorities and civil society around the table in Brussels to tackle together online hate speech.”[1]

 

These statements were not empty words. On May 31, 2016, the European Commission — the unelected “government” for over half a billion people from the Black Sea to the North Sea — together with the major companies Facebook, Twitter, YouTube (owned by Google) and Microsoft unveil a code of conduct. This includes a series of commitments to combat the spread of racism and xenophobia in Europe. EU Commissioner Vera Jourová in partnership with these major Internet companies unveiled a “code of conduct” to combat the spread of “illegal hate speech” online.[2]

 

Stalin centered in EU flagStalin Embedded in EU Flag

 

Free speech advocates have warned that the definition of “hate speech” is so vague the EU could end up with the power to get postings critical of the Brussels project removed from the Internet forever in what constitutes a “frightening path to totalitarianism”. The former UKIP MEP Janice Atkinson blasted: “It’s Orwellian. Anyone who has read 1984 sees it’s very re-enactment live.”[3] The Internet firms must work with EU officials to build a “network” of “trusted reporters” who can flag up instances of ‘hate speech’ to be removed within 24 hours. The EU’s definition of “hate speech” is so vague that it could potentially include virtually anything deemed politically incorrect by European authorities, including criticism of mass migration, Islam or even the European Union itself. The analyst Soeren Kern warns that the EU has declared war on Internet free speech.[4]

 

Free Speech Gagged - EU

EU Free Speech Gagged

 

The EU authorities have previously demonstrated that they consider so-called “Islamophobia” to constitute hate speech and racism. These new EU regulations will presumably make it even more difficult for Europeans to voice their opposition to Muslim immigration and the Islamization of their countries. American websites such as Jihad Watch or Gates of Vienna still enjoy some free speech protection from the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. If they had been based in the EU, they would now have run the risk of being banned outright. There is a chilling totalitarian impulse behind these censorship efforts.

 

While the EU clamps down harder on alleged Islamophobia, the Islamic terror threat in Europe has never been greater. Repeated attacks and Jihadist massacres in Copenhagen, Paris, Brussels and elsewhere prove this. Some of this terror threat is directly caused by the immigration policies and open borders promoted by the EU.

 

In early June 2016, a plot by the Islamic State (IS) to murder many people in Düsseldorf, Germany was revealed. A suspect in police custody has admitted to the authorities that ten Muslim terrorists were supposed to be involved in the plot to murder Europeans with bombs and guns.[5] A number of Islamic Jihadists have entered Europe as alleged “refugees” with the flow of migrants in 2015 and 2016. This is now a documented fact.

 

The massive influx of more than one million illegal immigrants in the Mediterranean in 2015 caused great internal tensions within the EU. While some came from Libya and headed towards Italy, a striking number of the predominantly Muslim migrants came in boats from the Turkish coast, heading for Greece and the rest of Europe. The authorities in the Muslim NATO country Turkey have cynically exploited this flow of migrants to squeeze concessions of out European authorities. This behavior essentially amounts to demographic warfare. It is certainly not the behavior of a friendly, supposedly allied country.

 

The European Commission has in 2016 given conditional backing for Turkish people to gain visa-free travel inside Europe’s passport-free Schengen area. Yavuz Baydar, a liberal Turkish journalist, said Turkey had all the power because it could break off the migrant deal at any moment. He said EU leaders let the Turkish government “play them like a yoyo.”[6] Turkey has taken the EU hostage, with migrants used as blackmail.

 

The EU’s ruling oligarchs indicate that millions of Muslims from Turkey may soon get easy, visa-free access to Europe.[7] In reality, the number of Muslims will probably be higher than this. Most of Turkey is geographically a part of the Middle East. The country borders Syria, Iraq and Iran. Once Turks have free access to the EU, the sale of Turkish passports and people smuggling from other Islamic countries to Europe will likely increase.

 

Turkey will soon have a larger population than Germany. Several million people of Turkish and Kurdish origins already live in Germany, plus rapidly increasing numbers of other Muslims. Hundreds of thousands of Afghans and others entered Germany just in 2015.

 

Armenian Genocide

Armenian Genocide

 

Anatolia, currently known as Turkey, was populated by Christians a thousand years ago, especially Greek-speaking Christians. Constantinople, now called Istanbul, was for centuries the largest city in Christian Europe. When Turks came from Central Asia, they began a thousand-year-long campaign of Jihad and ethnic cleansing. The result is that there are very few Christians left in Anatolia today. The genocide of Christian Armenians between 1915 and 1917 was just one part of this. A century later, Turkey still refuses to recognize the Armenian genocide.

 

Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his AKP party have largely dismantled the secular reforms instituted by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. Erdogan has pushed Turkey in a more authoritarian and aggressively Islamic direction. Why do we still treat the Turks as allies? Turks have been enemies of European civilization for over a millennium, apart from a few decades during the Cold War.

 

Erdogan speech

Recep Tayyip Erdogan Speech

 

Will the EU cave in to Turkish blackmail? It is insane to pay for aid in stopping hundreds of thousands of Muslim immigrants, and in exchange for this give millions of Muslims easier access to Europe. Any rational leader would not do such a thing. Unfortunately, it has been a long time since Western European leaders acted in the rational interests of their nations. EU leaders have for years developed the habit of caving in to Muslim demands.

 

In early June 2016, British Prime Minister David Cameron said there would be a recession, years of uncertainty and weaker trade in the event of Brexit. “Add those things together — the shock impact, the uncertainty impact, the trade impact — and you put a bomb under our economy,” he said.[8] Peace in Europe could be at risk if Britain votes to leave the European Union, PM Cameron previously warned.[9]

 

Margot Wallstrom

Margot Walström

 

Apparently, if you don’t surrender your freedom to a group of bureaucrats in Brussels, all kinds of disasters and plagues will rain down from the heavens. In 2005, the Swedish EU Commissioner Margot Wallström warned Europeans that they should support the EU Constitution or risk a new Holocaust.[10]

 

Prime Ministers must stop listening so much to their voters and instead act as “full time Europeans,” according to the powerful Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. Elected leaders are making life “difficult” because they spend too much time thinking about what they can get out of EU and bowing to public opinion. Mr. Juncker has warned the British people that they will be treated as “deserters” if they leave the EU.[11] That is a shockingly aggressive statement from a top EU oligarch to the citizens of a previously free nation. In most conflicts, deserters are dealt with harshly, and often executed.

 

The unelected Juncker has also publicly insulted Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban, ironically calling him a “dictator.”[12] Orban defends European civilization and the interests of his own nation. That is what his supporters and free citizens elected him to do. Juncker brags about using lies and subterfuge to force further EU integration upon European citizens, whether they want this or not.[13] Jean-Claude Juncker is so arrogant and insufferable that he turns thousands of people against the EU every time he opens his mouth. If Britain leaves the EU, Mr. Juncker’s extreme arrogance and authoritarian mindset will surely have contributed to this outcome.

 

EU birds-wire & UK bird leaves

EU Birds on a Wire – UK Birds Leave

 

The ruling EU elites are afraid that a Brexit could lead to a domino effect, causing other countries to leave the EU. Almost half of all Italians would vote to leave the EU if given the opportunity, according to one poll.[14]

 

If the British vote to leave the European Union, this would be a tremendous blow to the EU. The British resisted Napoleon’s attempts at subjugation in the nineteenth century. They also led the fight against Hitler in the twentieth century. It would be perfect historical symmetry if the British dealt a crushing blow to an increasingly dangerous and totalitarian EU in the twenty-first century.

 

However, Britain is no longer the same country as it was 200 years ago, or even 50 years ago. London now has a Muslim mayor. It is increasingly hard to find an actual Englishman is the English capital city. The Great Displacement of the native population through mass immigration continues at full speed, in the UK as in the rest of Western Europe. Muslim immigrants routinely gang rape white girls in towns across England. In a healthy Britain, the campaign to leave the EU should have won by a landslide.

 

I have spent a lot of time analyzing the EU. Whatever hopes I might have had in the early 1990s that it was a positive project have long since evaporated. A decade ago, my conclusion was that the organization is flawed beyond repair.[15] Perhaps the EU will be remembered as the alleged “peace project” that once again plunged Europe into conflict. This was my view already before the debt crisis in the Eurozone, and before the more recent migration crisis. Since then, things have deteriorated even further. The EU actively causes tensions within the North and South, East and West of Europe.

 

Africa is projected to grow with over one billion people in the coming 30 years. That is more than twice the population of the entire European Union today. If the Islamic world and Africa were to send a quarter of a billion migrants to Europe merely in the next decade, the population of these regions would still continue to grow. The EU responds to this unsustainable population explosion at its southern doorstep by making it easier to migrate from African countries to Europe.[16]

 

EU Flat Line

Flat Line EU

 

Europe has probably never throughout its entire, turbulent history been weaker than in the early decades of the twenty-first century. Europe is now the sick man of the world. Other countries can simply dump their failed cultures and unsustainable population growth in our lands.

 

The EU elites act in a nearly dictatorial manner. They ignore widespread popular opposition and open the continent up for millions of Muslims. The same EU elites want to punish formerly independent European nation states that refuse to take in Muslim immigrants.[17]This happens at a time when a disturbing number of immigrants harass Europeans in their own streets or plot murderous attacks in various European cities.

 

Forcing Muslims on European local communities while Muslims harass Europeans is not merely wrong. It is evil.

 

U.S. President Ronald Reagan angered many in 1983 when he dubbed the Soviet Union the “evil empire.” Yet he was telling the truth. It was an Evil Empire. The European Union is the Evil Empire reborn. It increasingly resembles a political mafia, with threats and blackmail. Yet U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama actively supports the new Evil Empire. He even intervened in the British campaign in 2016 and encouraged Britain to remain in the EU.[18]

 

EU Skull Dragon

EU Skull Dragon

 

The EU has become the anti-European Union, a cultural wrecking ball that is destroying European civilization. Through a toxic mix of stupidity, cowardice, lust for power and ideological fanaticism, European ruling elites promote suicidal immigration policies that are destabilizing much of the European continent. The organization does not solve any of Europe’s fundamental problems. It makes some of them worse, and adds new ones.

 

Of the EU’s key institutions, the European Parliament is the only one that is directly elected by the peoples of Europe. Current Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) should get paid for the period in which they have been elected, but not more. All institutions of the EU should be formally dismantled and abolished as soon as possible. That includes the European Commission, the European Council, the Council of the European Union, the Court of Justice of the European Union, the European Central Bank and the European Court of Auditors.

 

Europeans need to get rid of the EU, before the EU inflicts irreparable damage on European civilization.

History of the Counterjihad

Blog Editor: a bit of info on Fjordman

 

Info from when Fjordman’s anonymity was exposed due to the Norwegian terrorism of Anders Breivik:

 

… Among other studies Fjordman has been an anti-Jihadist writer warning of the dark side of the religion Islam. …

 

 

At any rate the man I consider one of the most scholarly of non-Muslim intellectuals willing to shed political correctness is being scrutinized by the Norwegian police for inciting Norwegian terrorist Anders Breivik to execute his Norwegian Massacre.

 

 

Breivik put together this 1500 page or so manuscript of which very little was actually original. Breivik borrowed from numerous notable anti-Jihadist writers to extrapolate a warped vision of Crusader Christians modeled after his interpretation of the Knights Templar. Breivik’s warped version of Christianity was to be the uniting symbolism to bring in a New European Order that would force Muslim immigrants to leave. The problem with Breivik’s New European Order was his plan adopted terrorist tactics against the ruling elite or to make the ruling elite to look bad to inspire ordinary Europeans to rise up to throw Liberal-Multiculturalist ruling elites out. Thus Norway experienced the slaughter of seventy or so Norwegians of young and old as part of a plan to terrorize the New European Order into existence.

 

 

I learned in an Andrew Bostom article that the police interviewed and confiscated his computer. It looks to me like the persecution of free speech is beginning to take on a police state motif in Norway. Hmm … It could be Breivik’s massacre might actually lead to a test of free speech between free speech limiting Multiculturalists and the few Liberty-minded European Conservatives that exist. …

 

The one tragedy you should be aware before you read about Fjordman interviews with the police and a Norwegian media outlet is that Fjordman is no longer an anonymous writer. Because of police investigations Fjordman gave an interview to Verdans Gang in which he publicly reveals his actual name believing the police investigation would eventually reveal it anyway.

 

MY Literary hero Fjordman is Peder Jensen. —Fjordman the Victim

  8/11/11

 

Another SlantRight post:

 

 

The writer and author Peder Are Nøstvold Jensen, better known as Fjordman, is a European treasure and a near extinct rarity unfortunately. I have admired and followed him for many years.

 

He’s been an inspiration to me personally as a writer and essayist. In fact, his book Defeating Eurabia was the catalyst for my own book No Apologies which will be released on Amazon for the Kindle this spring.

 

Fjordman has paid the price for having the courage to stand up for what is right and true. It is incredible, that in today’s Europe, one can hardly dare to stand up ones culture and country without undergoing intense scrutiny, harassment, and sometimes even persecution from the authorities. Not to mention risking death at the hands of the Muslims hordes who those same authorities have allowed to overrun the borders and flood the continent in their millions.

 

 

… After the 2011 Norway attacks by Anders Behring Breivik (see Is Anders Behring Breivik the Nordic Che Guevara?) Peder was ‘outed’ as Fjordman (a dangerous thing in Europe), lost his job, came under intense scrutiny from the government, and had his personal computer confiscated by the police. He is currently in exile from his native Norway and has paid the price for speaking out for the truth.

Brexit - British Exit of EU

Here is what I believe an American viewpoint on the Brexit decision UK voters will decide on June 23, 2016. In case you are out of the news loop, Brits are deciding to remain or leave their membership in the European Union (EU). There are a bit of economics and sovereignty issues agitating a significant amount of Brits pertaining to this referendum. However, it appears to me the hugest issue leaning toward leaving is the EU is imposing European nation members – including the United Kingdom – to accept unvetted Muslim refugees from war zones in which ISIS is slaughtering non-Muslims and the seeming increase of violence in other Muslim nations against indigenous Christians trapped in a mandatory allegiance Islamic Sharia Law.

 

We Americans don’t like to be told what to accept and to not accept from a foreign capital. Even though the UK is an EU member, the Brussels capital city is still a foreign capital to Brits.

For God, Country, Family and Queen

Will U.K. Embrace Freedom

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 6/11/2016 2:52 PM

 

The majority of the United Kingdom’s people currently understand that they have nothing to lose and everything to gain by leaving the European Union. They refuse to be bullied by Eurocrats, such as German Chancellor Angele Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, who advocate a single European government being forced on all EU members, along with a dysfunctional, multiracial, multiethnic, multicultural and multilingual progressive vision for society. They seek to regain the U.K.’s lost sovereign power. And, they will take measures to strengthen their democracy, national security and economy, by taking an enormously beneficial step toward reshaping their future and marking their vote to leave the European Union on June 23rd.

 

A federal Europe, a powerful centralized government for Europe, was never a British dream, however, the EU has steadily worked towards that end, even though it began as an economic partnership only. The EU now maintains its own parliament and supreme court, and more often than not, the U.K.’s demands are dismissed by this “economic partnership”, since Britain holds a small minority of voting rights within the EU.

 

The EU makes 60% of the U.K.’s laws [Blog Editor: Both UK-Leave and UK-Remain offer legitimate stats on the law issue. Determining who is correct is largely subjective to how the particulars affects any particular group], in corporate business, manufacturing, farming, oil exploration, medical research, transportation and real estate. It has also forced Britain to accept millions of people from other EU nations into its country, and too often, it has been at Britain’s expense, when poor Europeans take advantage of the U.K.’s welfare system.

 

Any properly led nation should not desire membership in the business inhibiting EU, a political entity that mandates 2,009 word regulations on matters like growing and processing walnuts for sale. There are only Ten Commandments in the Bible, 66 words in the Lord’s Prayer and 270 words in the Gettysburg Address.

 

In a desperate attempt to force Britain to remain in the EU, Prime Minister David Cameron has even sought allies in the Labor Party, such as former union chief Brendan Barber and former Labor Minister Harriet Harman. Both the Conservative and Labor Parties are split on the Brexit issue, and about half of the Labor Party sees Brussels as a protector for strikes without ballots and an ally in the Courts.

 

Noting that Conservative budget cuts are dwarfed by payments to the EU, the Labor Member of Parliament Kate Hoey has stated that the EU backs big business and tramples down British workers’ wages, even as it exploits Eastern European wages. Her view is supported by R.M.T., the left-wing labor union, and their assessment just happens to be accurate in this case.

 

In a recent Ipsos Mori poll, 58% of Britons don’t believe Brexit will harm their standard of living, and if the Telegraph’s May 31st report on EU fraud is accurate, the U.K. is certainly heading for greener pastures by leaving. More than $955 million (670 Sterling) was lost to fraud last year, and although four in ten EU officials were implicated in these crimes, only a few have been fired.

 

Compounding the EU’s economic funk, the EU is also trying to force Britain and the entire EU membership to follow German Chancellor Merkel’s example, the worst foreign policy decision in Europe since 1945, by opening up its country to millions of Muslims, who do not qualify as “refugees” in any classical definition. Thousands of these “refugees” are aggressive, young able-bodied men, of fighting age, who enter Europe chanting “Allahu Akbar.”

 

The EU has zero respect or concern for its members’ national sovereignty, and its recent threat to fine Poland $1.5 billion for refusing to accept Muslim refugees/invaders illustrates this perfectly. It also shows how much power it believes it holds, and it will not leave the U.K. unscathed from its tyrannical shenanigans, if Britain remains.

 

A fierce and relentless critic of the EU, Poland has its own “Polexit” movement underway to leave the EU. Several other nations, such as Sweden, Switzerland, France, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic have similar movements ongoing; they all have one thing in common, in that they want a Europe comprised of free nations. Also, some countries, like Poland and Hungary, assert that the current massive wave of Muslim migrants threatens both their national security and their country’s Christian identity.

 

Ironically, Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski pointedly suggested that hundreds of thousands of Syrian male “refugees” of fighting age should be in Syria fighting, rather than being dispersed throughout the EU nations. He stated: “They expect us [the West] to send our troops to fight and die for Syria, while hundreds of thousands of Syrians sip coffee — at the old town square, chatting up our women, and watch us fight for their security.”

 

“Are these happy young men really timid souls fleeing war and prosecution? They aren’t quite the heart-rending image of disheveled, traumatized refugees fleeing the horror of their war-torn home country one might expect”, blared the Britain Express.

 

In April, Nigel Farage, UKIP leader, noted that the Muslim migration was “a fifth column living within our communities, that hates us, and wants to kill us and … overturn our complete way of life.” Continuing further, Farage stated: “… the Christians of Syria and Iraq … only 10% of what they were a few years ago … qualify for refugee status because they’ve been persecuted for who they are. I want us to welcome genuine refugees, not the disaster that is engulfing much of Europe today.”

 

Britain already leads Europe’s intelligence community, and much of Britain’s national security concerns are handled through NATO, so Brexit will cost Britain next to nothing. However, the gains will be substantial, in that the U.K. can exit the anti-nation state European Convention on Human Rights, making it easier to extradite and deport terrorists, and more importantly, the U.K. will be able to assert and enforce its own immigration policy without EU interference.

 

Yisrael Katz, Israel’s Intelligence Minister, observed that the EU has lost focus of its security issues, as its leaders continue “to eat chocolate and enjoy the good life with their liberalism and democracy.”

 

Chris Grayling, leader of the British House of Commons, drives home the case for Brexit with the most important point in his May 23rd Washington Post editorial, stating: “It is much more accurate to consider the differences between parts of the European Union in terms of a comparison between the United States and Bolivia, rather than one between Nevada and Maryland. Different countries, different cultures, different economies, with huge gulfs between them[.] … The United States would never accept a situation in which the countries of Latin America could join together and decide what laws should apply in Washington. It rightly expects to be a strong, independent country. That’s what I want for Britain too.”

 

Britons __ rally, for God, country, family and Queen, and reject the EU’s globalist designed tyranny that has no regard for your struggles to secure a council flat, a doctor’s appointment, a seat for your child in a good school and the harm caused by the greatest wave of immigration in U.K. history. Reject the EU’s, the Bank of England’s and the International Monetary Fund’s failed crap economic experiment that has created unemployment rates of 38% to 48% in many EU nations. And, if you love England and wish her to survive as a unique nation, reject the dark night the EU has planned for her and embrace control of your nation and your destiny on June 23rd by embracing freedom: Vote Leave.

Hail Britannia: VOTE LEAVE


Vote Brexit 6-23-16

What kind of word math do you get when you add Britain and exit the EU? You get Brexit. Apparently most of the United Kingdom’s ruling elites do not desire to leave the European Union. Those British ruling elites are placing a large amount of gloom and doom on British voters if they decide to leave the EU in a June 23, 2016 referendum. Justin Smith in good American style of mistrusting big government favors the Brexit crowd of the UK.

Hail Britannia: VOTE LEAVE

Break the EU’s Chains

The British people seem ready to leave the European Union through an historic June 23rd referendum, because they are tired of the high-handed tyrannical regulations, clauses and counter clauses, emanating from the EU Council on even the simplest aspects of their everyday lives. They have determined that leaving the EU will be the best step towards reclaiming their nation’s sovereignty and democratic rule in all matters of immigration and border control, their economy, free trade and national security, and they are proudly waving the Union Jack, as they tell their would be masters in Brussels to “go to hell”, declaring their independence.

 

In November 2015, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron attempted to renegotiate a treaty change with European Union Council President Donald Tusk concerning U.K. sovereignty, trade, immigration and economic governance, but Tusk rejected it all, with the minor exception regarding the handling of a few million pounds for children’s benefits. This dismal failure of PM Cameron only offered proof that the EU was closed to any substantial moves towards reform [The Telegraph & Financial Times], which created a renewed and angry momentum for the Out of Europe, Vote Leave and Brexit” movements.

 

Corporatists, transnationalists, advocates of the UN 2030 Agenda [Blog Editor: I’m a bit of anti-UN/anti-globalist kind-of-guy so here’s an anti-UN 2030 Agenda article. I’m not sure if Justin is on board with my concerns], the BBC and the Guardinista establishment [The Guardian’s pro-UN 2030 Agenda] are presenting dishonest and fear-based monologues, regarding the uncertainty a U.K. exit from the EU might bring. They enjoy being able to circumvent individual nation’s policies by going through Brussels, and most of them have been made rich through their deals with the tyrannical, unelected and entrenched bosses of the European Union.

 

Despite disingenuous conclusions from the transnationalist President Obama, does anyone really believe that a hundred years of shared security concerns and initiatives and trade agreements between the U.S. and the U.K. will be detrimentally affected by a “Yes” vote to leave the EU?

 

What cogent thought process could people, like Lena Komileva (London economist), possibly be using when they ascribe the term “illiberal” to the British people’s desire for nationalist policies [last paragraph Bloomberg] and reclaiming Britain’s sovereignty?

 

It will not take years for the U.K. to renegotiate trade deals with the U.S., as Obama suggests, but rather only months. And, if small nations like South Korea and Chile can succeed in global markets, certainly Britain also will continue to succeed, especially since the EU already imports 45% of British exports.

 

Membership in the EU currently costs Britain approximately $30 billion annually. Although $55 billion in austerity cuts were made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer during the last Parliament, Britain’s contribution to the EU was roughly $132 billion. Every cut in public spending could be reversed, and Britain could still pay down its deficit faster if Britain were to leave the European Union. [VoteLeaveTakeControl.org data in British Pounds between UK and EU]

 

In February, Gerald Mason, senior vice-president of Britain’s high profile Tate and Lyle Sugars, made a mockery of claims by Britain Strong in Europe that Brexit would spell economic disaster for the U.K., when he stated, “we are absolutely certain that our business and people who work in it would have a more secure future outside the EU” [Evening Standard 4th paragraph].

 

Priti Patel, U.K.’s employment minister, told the Daily Telegraph in March [Same quote Daily Mail 2/22/16]:

 

“The Prime Minister has tried hard but the EU refused to give the British people what they want … The only way to take back control over our economy … to create more jobs and growth is to Vote Leave.”

 

However, national security is the issue currently foremost in most Britons minds, but Eurocentrics, who believe the U.K. will be safer in the EU through cooperation on crime and terrorism, have failed to see that the EU has never been capable of agreeing on effective foreign policy. Also not taken into account, the EU recently embraced the expanded definition of “refugee” put forth by the United Nations in its 2030 Agenda. [See also point #2 of UN adopting Sustainable Development Goals] Nigel Farage, UKIP leader, warns that the U.K. will not be able to handle the upcoming surge of migrants, if it stays in the EU. He observed during the April 1st Munk Debate that “Jeane-Claude Juncker, the unelected president of the European Commission, has changed the definition of what a refugee is, to include people … from war torn areas … (and) from extreme poverty … (and) perhaps 3 billion people could possibly come to Europe (as a result). [I found this quote at WND]

 

There are also reports of Bosnia, with a population of 3.8 million, being infiltrated by Islamic State terrorists. They are buying property there, and they would be free to travel to the U.K., if Bosnia is granted EU membership.

 

Andrew Rosindell, a Conservative member of Parliament, stated in March [Bloomberg]: “Being in the EU means we don’t have control of our own systems, we don’t have control of our own borders. We are effectively tied to countries which I think are not as good at protecting their people as we have been.”

 

One can only imagine the palpable red-hot anger of the British people, upon hearing Martin Shulz, European Parliament president, say that he was [The Telegraph] “sad and angry (over) the undertone of national resentment” and it was “not possible” to make the changes PM Cameron wanted. Shulz added that Britain “belongs” to the EU — really? — just watch, wait and see.

 

Downing Street has declared that “a vote to leave is a vote to leave” [Near exact wording in Cameron photo caption in Herald Scotland]. A Leave vote will facilitate the U.K.’s departure through Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty [Britain & Europe discussion on Article 50], and terms for Britain’s withdrawal will then be negotiated over the next two years.

 

Over forty years ago, Britain last debated her relationship with Europe, and even then, elected officials on both the right and left, such as two of the most iconic political figures of that era — Enoch Powell and Tony Benn, campaigned against the U.K.’s membership in what was then the European Economic Community. They objected to Britain’s elected government meekly surrendering Britain’s national sovereignty to unelected foreign entities and the fundamental lack of democracy in the EU.

 

Lady Margaret Thatcher knew that it would be near impossible to effectively and efficiently impose one currency, one economy and one national identity on many different countries (now 28) with such different languages, histories, customs and cultures in general. Early on, the Iron Lady called the attempt to create a European super-state “the greatest folly of the modern era.” [Townhall]

 

Britons, excited and optimistic, are moving forward to reclaim a more-free, prosperous, ally connected and nationally secure Britain, through their own elected officials and their own choices and wisdom, breaking free of the heavy, bureaucratic chains of the European Union. They will vote for an independent future in the world, benefiting all, and, as they shout “Hail Britannia”, they will vote to leave in June.
