The best speech on Brexit — from a shocking source

By Thomas Lifson

Keep in mind that, according to most of our media (and even more so the European media), we are supposed to regard with fear the German "ultra-right-wing" political party, the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD). Also, keep in mind that we are supposed to believe that the Brexit battle pits Brits against a united Europe that is horrified at their effort to shatter the European Union.

But, in fact, the arrogant, unaccountable transnational organizations, of which the E.U. is a leading example, have served global elites better than ordinary citizens of their constituent countries.

Watch this speech in Germany's parliament, the Bundestag, by AfD's co-leader Alice Weidel, and start to realize that populism is a global force in the highly industrialized world and that the complaints we Americans feel against our elites, and the complaints Brits have against ceding control to the E.U., are all of a piece. She does not hesitate to point her finger at France, which is leading the resistance to a negotiated Brexit.

The video below was subtitled by "Cassius," who maintains a YouTube channel.

I would imagine that the response of a person who was "pro-E.U." to that particular speech would be something like: "Unsinn!!" or "Zuiver afval!" or "Poppycock!" or "Est-tu fumez la moquette!?" (I just love that phrase! :P ).

Obviously "populists" (be they "White Nationalists" or "Olive Drab [Italian] Nationalists" or whatever) across the Euro-diaspora are going to be fapping with glee to see a stern attractive articulate Ph.D. lady lashin' it to the totalitarian bureacrats.

Me, I stand somewhere in the middle and my response is: well she does seem to make a lot of good points, no? This is the thing I find amazing. Things get said; in fact they get said ad nauseum, by one side, and then exactly contradicted by the other. This shit has been dragging on for so long now, I have the feeling someone of the Professor Hanson ilk needs to sit down and write a book. There is probably plenty of time to write Volume I of the Epic Saga before Brexit actually happens, and then that could be like the Hobbit. A whole Trilogy and an Encyclopedi "Silmarillion" style document could also be spun off! :lol:

. . . Anyway . . . the point I always come back to on all this . . . It wasn't so many generations ago when Prussians disguised as "Nazis" were coming to eat EVERYONE's lunch and throw them in the cooler if they protested, so this stuff is a definite step up from that . . .

Scottish judges rule that Parliament suspension is unlawful, Labour commie Len McCluskey claims that Boris Johnson will be put on citizens arrest if he enters Scotland...

What a waste...

In communist dictatorships the party leaders arrests citizens; not the other way around. ;)

No. 10 rule out and election pack with Nigel Farage...
Boris Johnson will not make an election pact with Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, Downing Street has said.

Mr Farage said his party and the Conservatives should make a deal and "together we would be unstoppable".

Two newspaper adverts set out his offer to help "secure a big Brexit majority" and to "destroy Corbyn's Labour".

But a senior Conservative source said Mr Farage was "not a fit and proper person" and "should never be allowed anywhere near government".

Mr Farage tweeted the remarks "look like comments from deep inside the bunker", adding: "I do not want a job in government. I just want to put country before party and deliver a clean break Brexit."

Mr Johnson argues that an election is now the only way to break the deadlock over Brexit, but MPs have twice rejected his call to hold one.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he is "eager for an election" but wants to see legislation designed to stop a no-deal Brexit on 31 October implemented first.

Parliament is now prorogued for five weeks and is not scheduled to return until 14 October, when there will be a Queen's Speech outlining Mr Johnson's legislative plans.

Meanwhile, Scotland's highest civil court has ruled that the prime minister's suspension of the UK Parliament was unlawful.

Mr Farage has offered a "non-aggression pact" between his party and the Conservatives, on the condition that Mr Johnson sign up for "a clean-break Brexit" - in other words, no deal.

The aim is try to see off the threat from a "Remain alliance" of opposition parties who oppose Brexit and could depose the Tories.

Mr Farage says he will not field candidates in any of the Conservatives' existing seats and targets if, in return, the Tories stand aside in more than 80 Leave-voting constituencies where they are unlikely to win.

He made the offer in a full-page advert in the Sun and a wraparound advert in the Daily Express on Wednesday.

At the weekend, The Brexit Party leader said the offer was "100% sincere" and would help return Mr Johnson to Downing Street.

He wrote in the Sunday Telegraph: "Johnson should cast his mind back to the European elections in May, in which his party came fifth, and ask himself: does he want the Tories to find themselves in a similarly disastrous position when the results of the next general election come in, or does he want to sign a non-aggression pact with me and return to Downing Street?"

When asked about a potential alliance on the Andrew Marr Show, Chancellor Sajid Javid said: "We don't need an electoral alliance with anyone. We can stand on our own two feet, put our message across."

It's up to the Supreme Court to decide that. Scotland can fuck off.

The Supreme Court will decide what it sees the best. But I don't see how it can decide that Bo0-6Jo didn't mislead the Queen. ;)
