BREXIT: A Revolutionary Act

Brexit is the nickname for the historic Vote on June 23, 2016 in Britain on whether to Exit (leave) or stay with the European Union. The vote was 52% to 48% in favoring of leaving. The vote has caused upheaval in stock markets around the world including the US Dow Jones plunge of almost 700 points. Gold was up as much as $85 per ounce.  A special report from Money and Markets encapsulates the Brexit Vote this way.

“In a shock felt ’round the world, U.K. voters chose “Brexit.”

“They didn’t listen to the elites, the bankers, the academics, and others pushing to maintain the status quo. They didn’t heed the warnings of European Union officials in Brussels, central bankers here and abroad, or heads-of-state around the Continent. Instead, they chose to lay the groundwork for stepping out of the European Union – for better or for worse. (The Brexit vote is advisory only. It is now up to the Government to pursue Brexit.)

“The 52%-to-48% margin of victory … and the turnout of more than 72% … showed just how powerful the ‘Leave’ movement turned out to be. That immediately raised concerns that other nationalist, anti-immigration, anti-bureaucracy movements in countries like France, Italy, Austria and Germany will gain steam, and potentially push for their own referendums.” www.moneyandmarkets.com

The Brits, by voting for Brexit, were seeking to regain national sovereignty and self determination. They were opposing endless regulations by unelected and unaccountable European Union Bureaucrats stifling business and jobs. They voted to withdraw from the economically failing European Union Bankster overlords who have forced unlimited immigration, destroying jobs and culture. 

The Central Banksters, including the private Federal Reserve Bank, are in panic mode and planning more intervention …which means more money printing. “Since (2007) Lehman Brothers went under they’ve already printed more than 12.3 Trillion and cut interest rates more than 650 times around the world.” With this massive paper printing they have not succeeded in improving economies around the world but like the US, have stymied growth and jobs, growing government dependency. Because massive printing causes inflation (more paper dollars chasing fewer hard goods) prices continue to go up, wages are falling or stagnate, and 100 million adults in America do not have jobs.

Be aware that since Brexit has caused significant panic in the world’s and our U.S. markets, it has contributed to significant uncertainly in our economy.  It would be wise the be prepared with basics in your home including: a 3 month supply of the food you regularly eat and other necessities like soap and toilet paper, first aid, medicine/prescriptions, 2 week supply of water, cash on hand in small denominations, and critical bills, like utilities, paid in advance.  Spiritual preparation is most important.

One predictable result of the Brexit vote is that the price of Gold and Silver (real money) are surging.  This flight to safety should be a red flag to those who have a “normalcy bias” thinking that things will stay the same.  Just as with the phenomenon of the Trump success in the U.S., Brexit shows that the Brits are also looking for answers besides those propagandized by the Elite Power Brokers. They are beginning to feel the “chains of slavery” encompassing them. Voting for Brexit was a Revolutionary Act.  I found it interesting that one of the prominent leaders of the pro-Brexit “Leave Movement”, Nigel Farage, quoted verbatim our Declaration of Independence and labeled the Bexit vote, “Independence Day.” It is a Blessing whenever Revolution…true political change comes without violence.  It will be interesting to see what the full ramifications of this courageous vote will be. 

The Declaration of Independence

     “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 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, pursing invariable 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.—Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now that necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.”

(Next in the Declaration of Independence there is the list of abuses which is very instructive echoing our own day, such as, “He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their salaries. He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.”

Cliven Bundy is a “Political Prisoner”

Joel F. Hansen, Cliven Bundy’s attorney was quoted in a Sparks Tribune article by Thomas Mitchell, regarding the legal process as saying, “The government is trying Cliven Bundy in these motions, rather than before a jury of his peers. The government is holding Mr. Bundy in solitary confinement, a man who has never hurt a fly,” Hansen writes. “The government seems to be afraid that it might lose in a jury trial, so it wants to keep him in prison, in solitary confinement, as long as it can, because he, like Nelson Mandela, is a political prisoner. … There is nothing in the U.S. Constitution allowing the federal government to hold political prisoners without a trial. Nothing.”

Hansen based his political prisoner allegations on the fact Bundy is accused by the government of having “strong anti-federal government views” and that his views are not “principled.”

“Mr. Bundy, in studying the US Constitution, found in the First Amendment that he had freedom of speech and that the government can’t take that away,” Hansen blusters. “And where in all of Anglo-American or Constitutional law is it held that someone’s views must, in the government’s opinion, be ‘principled?’ Are we now in a fascist state where one’s opinions must be, in the opinion of the government, ‘principled?’ This is dangerous talk, to say the least.”

Hansen states that under the Bail Reform Act the government must prove by “clear and convincing” evidence that Bundy poses a danger to the community or it must prove by a “preponderance of the evidence” that he is a flight risk — noting that Bundy has not gone anywhere for two years.

He also recalls that Bundy was never at the “scene of any confrontation, never brandished a weapon, was never armed with any firearm, never directed anyone to assault a federal officer, and never assaulted anyone or committed any battery in his life.”

 “Cliven Bundy is about as likely to hurt someone or to flee Nevada as a desert tortoise,” Hansen attests. “It just isn’t going to happen.” http://sparkstrib.com/2016/04/12/the-two-faces-of-nevada-rancher-cliven-bundy/

From Carole Bundy: We at home are struggling, trying to support one another, to continue a normal life, to stay strong spiritually. The hearts of the children are turned to their fathers and the hearts of the fathers are turned to their babies.  All of our hearts are broken from sadness.  We will continue to be brave and press forward through this terrible time. But, resources are few, and the burden of providing necessities and attorney’s fees is great. I find it humbling, but I ask you to please come to our aid!

Thank you for being generous in helping with my legal fund so I can win this battle and bring my men home and return all the patriots to their families! Thank you for the prayers of comfort for my husband and family! Above all, please pray for our sacred Constitution! We all love this land of liberty! We must preserve it for our posterity! We must stand together for freedom! It’s a battle that must be won.

I love each of you!         
Big hugs from the ranch.                                   
Carol Bundy

This Could Be the Trial of the Century 

“The legal costs to try Cliven Bundy’s case are enormous, and unless you help, Cliven could well remain a political prisoner for the rest of his life. Obama and Harry Reid are determined now to bankrupt this God-fearing family with legal costs, and so Mrs. Bundy, out of necessity, is turning to you!  Please respond generously now.  For Freedom, Larry Klayman and Joel F. Hansen Attorneys (Joel is Janine Hansen’s brother).

Delaware Rescinds ALL Article V Constitutional Convention Applications

The Delaware Legislature rescinded by a wide margin (House 25 Yes, 11 No, Senate 16 Yes, 4 No) all prior applications for a Constitutional Convention pursuant to Article V of the U.S. Constitution.  

Significantly, the bill HCR 60, states, …”the General Assembly of the State of Delaware does not want its previous applications for a constitutional convention, most of which were made over 3 decades ago, to be aggregated with calls for a convention from other states.” The Legislation then lists EIGHT applications from 1907 to the 1976 passage of the Article V Convention for a Balanced Budget Amendment. http://legis.delaware.gov/LIS/lis148.nsf/vwLegislation/HCR+60/$file/legis.html?open

It should concern us that we don’t know how applications will be aggregated in order to achieve the Article V requirement for 2/3rds, some 34 of the states, in order to call a convention for “proposing amendments.”  It is possible that applications on a wide variety of subjects could be aggregated together to achieve a Constitutional Convention. There are many Constitutional amendments proposed by advocates of an Article V Convention. 

The www.bba4usa.org claims 27 states have passed applications for an Article V Convention on a Balanced Budget (BBA). Some of these date back to the 1970’s. This is the highest number for any individual issue.  The Left is working on an Article V Constitutional Convention to Rescind the Supreme Court’s Decision on Citizens United.  Rescission of Citizens United applications have passed in California, Illinois, Vermont and New Jersey. What if these applications from Democrat States were combined with the applications for Article V’s for a Balanced Budget which have passed in Republican States?  Today that would equal 31 states…3 states away from the required 34 needed to reach the 34 states required for a Constitutional Convention in Article V. Too close for comfort!
