The “Leftist” totalitarians will shut down speech if they are allowed, A dispatch from Europe, The New Dark Age?

The author of this article is a bit too wedded to the “Right-Left” spectrum but it is an important story so we post it. Too often people assume that they are on the “Right” or the “Left” without really thinking what that means. Politicians take advantage of this. “Right” and “Left” are really very antiquated terms.

Free speech is not a value shared by everyone anymore. (It really was in the West for years and years on both what is called the Right and Left.) There are those who really do think now however that speech should be prosecuted,

Brexit Fears Weren’t Overblown — They Were Flat-Out Wrong

Brexit was a massive win for those of us who oppose crony capitalism. It was a line in the sand, in the Channel, and Britain in the end decided to remain Britain and to tell the eurocrats to take a hike.

But the folks in Brussels and many EU apologists warned of dire consequences if Britons dared assert themselves. Basically these fear mongers have been completely wrong. Britain’s future if anything looks a bit brighter today than pre-Brexit.

Leaked: Inside the George Soros plan to exploit the refugee crisis to further his agenda

In the emails the Soros organization outlines how it uses international organizations to influence (and we assume overwhelm) national policy and sovereignty on immigration issues.

We at ACC are for immigration. But we are also for US sovereignty. There are many people in the world who would like to take the United States down a few pegs (as they see it) and integrate it into a more “international” legal regime. George Soros is one of these people.

Given the hits we have taken to the rule of law in this country in recent years a more “international”

The Economist says the political divide is between “globalists” and “anti-globalists”, no it’s the political class versus everyone else

In the attached article The Economist frets that the trend toward “globalism” (their word) is in jeopardy. And what the magazine or “newspaper” calls globalism is indeed being challenged. The headlong march toward transnational governments embodied in the European experiment is under attack. And for good reason. People feel disenfranchised.

The average person sees a “global order” (again The Economist’s words) which cares little for the “pedestrian” interests of the middle class. The bourgeoisie sees a rising crony class,

“People must learn to recognize the EU for what it really is: a gang of power-lusty crooks empowering and enriching themselves at other, productive people’s expense.”

Hans-Hermann Hoppe shares his insight on the nature of the European Union, the future of the world economy, and the danger of the USA embracing a European type economy – which basically it has.

Italy May Spur Pan-Europe Bank Crisis, SocGen Chairman Says — Already talking bailout (or bail-in?)

Una roccia settentrionale moment?

You may not have heard over the  American political din of the last few days but Italy’s banking sector is melting. Eyes are on Europe’s southern tier right now. “The soft underbelly” of Europe. The words “inter-bank lending” (specifically potential problems with it) and “contagion” are creeping back into the global financial conversation. As we’ve said it is very likely that any financial downturn in the next year or so will be blamed on Brexit, and the current Italian troubles no doubt have much to do with Brexit,

Dow, S&P 500 shake off Brexit, log best week of 2016

They didn’t “shake off” Brexit. The markets, to almost everyone’s surprise – including Brexiteers – celebrated the UK’s independence.

There is a sense that the lock down the establishment banks and governments have had on things for years and years has broken down. Markets are taking in the oxygen. It’s real air too, not central bank created life gas.

Markets go up and down (at least they used to) and any future dip will probably be blamed on Brexit by some.

The Express: European SUPERSTATE to be unveiled: EU nations ‘to be morphed into one’ post-Brexit

Many have long argued that a “United States of Europe” was the end goal of the European Union. Now this goal, once spoken about in hushed tones is more out in the open.

Long have many in Europe resented the power of the USA. (Which frankly in some ways is understandable. Though Europe is also full of friends of America too.) The euro was established to counter the dollar as a potential reserve currency and petro currency. Now the challenge is more than just economic,

Kremlin Gets Flashback of Soviet Collapse in Brexit Fallout

As we said in an earlier post, the guys running the show in Eastern Bloc countries weren’t happy when the Berlin Wall came down. Likewise the apparatchiks of various sorts deeply embedded in and often reliant on the European Union system have had heart attacks in the face of Brexit.

Brexit is not on par with the collapse of communism however. The end of the Cold War was more than surprising, or even mind blowing,

Of course the establishment is freaking out over Brexit. What did you expect?

On Friday the world changed. Brexit became reality. The old order was dealt a serious and very public blow. The “establishment” defined by the big banks, the big corporations, and big government was shocked. They couldn’t believe it. How could it be that Britons rejected the system they had spent so many years constructing, a system from which they the cronies had greatly profited?

The media likewise continues to howl in an almost existential bay at the great political wheel in the sky.
