A Tale of 2 Coups ... Brexit and The US Election

Recommended Posts

There appears to be a curious symmetry connecting both the blocking of Brexit, and the continued attempts to bring down a free and fair American election ...  not least the desire to thwart the openly expressed wishes of the US and British electorates.

2016 was the year of the unexpected outcome -- twice. Against all the odds -- and against the wishes of the biased mainstream media -- Britain voted to leave the European Union, and in the United States, Donald J. Trump became the 45th president of the United States. Both events took the "establishment" by surprise, if not horror. Both events have been the subject of continuous attempts to overturn those results by any means possible, no matter how odious or even undemocratic.

The similarities are legion: These attempted coups were the first time that the results of a legitimate American presidential election and a British democratic referendum have been the subjected to concerted bids to upend them. In both instances, an establishment instigated attempted coups d'état, neither of which would look out of place in a third world dictatorship.

The good news is that it is wholly unlikely that either of the "two coups" will succeed. The increasingly transparent nature of the opposition's underhanded tricks to reverse the outcome, will in fact, be their undoing. Perhaps the general public -- American or British -- are not actually as stupid as their establishments apparently wish they were -- or contemptuously assume that they are.

Each time another obstacle is placed in their way, whether a hysterical charge of "Russian collusion" or -- the Democrats have not even yet defined their charge; they are probably still looking for one -- "Ukrainian pressure" against Trump, or the desperate attempt to charge Boris Johnson with dishonesty in his suspending Parliament, the public grow ever more wary of dubious nature of the seditious machinations in progress. They can see for themselves what is happening. When the establishment does not get its way and contravenes the will of the people, is the only outcome pandemonium? Who needs a democracy like that?  "Why is this [Brexit] important for us Americans?' Donald Trump Jr has asked

"Because Brexit is an example of how the establishment elites try to subvert the will of the people when they're given the chance. When my father beat the Washington establishment in a historic outcome in 2016, just a few months after the Brexit vote, we mistakenly presumed there would be a peaceful and respectful transition of power from the Democrats to the Republicans, just as there has always been in this country."

So too did citizens of the UK presume there would be a peaceful, respectful – and timely exit from clutches of the untransparent and unaccountable European Union. Unfortunately, the presumption was an optimistic one. "Instead", Trump Jr continues, "the Democrats and deep-state operatives in our justice system have been colluding to subvert the will of the American people, with high-level officials even discussing a scheme to try to remove him from office using the 25th Amendment of our constitution."

The description of the "scheme to remove [Trump] from office" eerily mirrors the political manoeuvring that has taken place since the original Brexit vote, three years ago. Since then, with two Prime Ministers down -- and counting -- with one attempt after another being made to "subvert the will of the people," the excuses for the "delay" are becoming increasingly irrational. Looking at the allegations that the Brexit campaign "deceived the public" into voting "leave," to the latest coup attempt in claiming the Prime Minister "lied" to the Queen about his motives for suspending Parliament, one cannot help asking oneself what kind of spurious trick will they will try next.

The US President and the British Prime Minister, meanwhile, remain unbowed in their determination to deliver to the public what they voted for. UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid has insisted that the government has a plan to bypass any "Remainer" legislation thrown at Number 10. "It is still possible to honour [the PM's] 'do or die' vow to secure Brexit by October 31". If he is correct, the PM will not be forced to do as the opposition propose -- to "beg" the EU for an extension to the deadline, if no deal is reached by October 19.

Moreover, in the US, there have been calls for impeaching the president virtually since he took office. Representative Jerrold Nadler was overheard on a train planning an impeachment already in November 2018. US Attorney General William Barr is approaching Australia and Italy to ask about their help to former US President Barack Obama in his campaign against then-candidate Trump, and the Ukraine and the UK will soon likely be under investigation. Basically, claims that President Trump "violated the constitution" and acted "improperly" during a call with the Ukrainian president are clearly fabricated. In fact, it looks as if this entire US escapade was initiated to prevent the real crimes that were committed before Trump was elected from becoming exposed. As Stephen Miller noted, "Trump is the real whistleblower" -- against a possibly criminal "Deep State," which the president has been referring to as "The Swamp."

Information is expected to come out shortly, possibly exposing the real crimes that may have been committed by the possibly terrified State leadership of the previous administration. There are also allegations that the entire attempted coup to unseat President Trump is actually an effort to head off the exposure of widespread criminality in the previous administration. If anything in President Trump's phone call was untoward, what, then, does it say -- as just one tiny example -- about the boast by former Vice President Joe Biden that he threatened to withhold a billion dollar loan-guarantee unless a Ukrainian prosecutor, investigating alleged corruption in a firm, Burisma, paying Biden's son $83,000 a month, unless the prosecutor was fired within six hours? The prosecutor was duly dispatched.

The opponents of both Brexit and the US president are treading on thin ice -- apparently indifferent to the anger and division they are causing, or are even encouraging. Like spoilt children who do not get the present they want, it seems they would rather throw a tantrum and see if any of the dirt they throw might stick than protect the institutions they so sanctimoniously claim to uphold. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked Democrats to "focus on the Constitution," when in fact she called for impeaching the president before she could even have known what was in the phone call, the report of which was only released later. This is the same Nancy Pelosi, incidentally, who said about former President Barack Obama's 2,700-page proposed healthcare bill, "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it."

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has reminded the House of Representatives that while the US Constitution does not explicitly require a vote by the entire House to begin an impeachment enquiry, neither does it support one "by a unilateral decree of the Speaker." The Democrat-controlled House has so far tabled McCarthy's resolution -- twice. And in the traditionally "wrong" Congressional committee -- Intelligence rather than Judiciary -- to boot.

Meanwhile, the citizens of both the UK and USA, who are wading apprehensively into their third year of obfuscation and obstruction, must still be staring baffled at the underhanded tactics of the Left, who seek to deny them their rightful claim to victory. Like villagers under siege, these two trampled sets of citizens have learned to toughen up and rely on their inner resolve to see this through. The public sorely need their faith restored: that their rights as voters, along with fair play, will ultimately win out.
