Let Them Howl, Boris! – Patrick J. Buchanan – Official Website

August 30, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

Whatever may be said of him, Johnson has shown himself as a man of action, a risk-taker, a doer, like Trump, who has hailed Johnson for the suspension. And leaders like Johnson are today shouldering aside the cookie-cutter politicians to dominate the world stage.

Facing a Parliamentary majority opposed to a hard Brexit — a crashing out of the EU if Britain is not offered a deal she can live with — Boris Johnson took matters into his own hands.

He went to the Queen at Balmoral and got Parliament “prorogued,” suspended, from Sept. 12 to Oct. 14. That’s two weeks before the Oct. 31 deadline Johnson has set for Britain’s departure.

The time his opposition in Parliament has to prevent a crash out of the European Union has just been sliced in half. His adversaries are incensed.

Of worthless allies and alliances, and the dangers thereof | Non-Intervention2 – Michael Scheuer

For almost a year, claims have been rife that the United States was either “on the edge of energy independence” or “energy independent”. There has been very little public push back against these claims, suggesting that there is great deal of truth in them. Since the energy in question long has been sitting nearby in the ground or under the oceans one is tempted to ask “What took so long?”

Still, Obama did all he could to prevent energy independence, and Hillary Clinton would have shut the door on the issue, so all that can be said is that President Trump, Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, and American energy companies have done a great and lasting service to genuine U.S. national security interests.

How Britain’s special relationship with America became lopsided | Intrepid Report.com – Linda S. Heard

The fact is that London is reliant on Washington in terms of defence capabilities, intelligence sharing, international diplomacy and economic cooperation. The days when Britons ruled the waves are long gone. Budget cuts have halved the Royal Navy’s fleet of ships and submarines since 1990.

A House of Commons Defence Committee Report titled Indispensable allies: US, Nato and UK Defence Relations suggests that Britain is “over-reliant on the US as a military partner” and “the degree of over-reliance could be measured by the UK’s ability to act independently in pursuit of its own national interest, without US support”.

Theresa May’s Brexit gambit fails as her premiership fades | One America News Network – Guy Faulconbridge and Costas Pitas

May 22, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

“The proposed second reading of the WAB is clearly doomed to failure so there really is no point wasting any more time on the prime minister’s forlorn hope of salvation. She’s got to go,” Andrew Bridgen, a Conservative lawmaker, told Reuters.

“It’s now clear that the overwhelming majority of the parliamentary party, the voluntary party and the electorate now agree. She has to go.”

He is one of many Conservatives to reject the deal, something that has driven other leadership contenders hoping to replace May to also oppose the agreement. Boris Johnson, the bookmakers’ favorite to be Britain’s next prime minister, said he would not vote for it.

London and Paris hypocritical on private military firms | Intrepid Report.com – Wayne Madsen

Stung by the past exploits of mercenary companies, the Western military-intelligence complex came up with the term “private military companies” to mask the true nature of these corporate brigands. The PMC term stands as a stark example of “newspeak” employed by the CIA and their friends in Britain and France. Mercenary firms even have their own Washington, DC-based lobbying organization, the International Stability Operations Association, which, among other tasks, is keen to inform journalists that the use of the term “mercenary” for their member firms is pejorative in nature.

At issue presently for London and Paris, as well as for the increasingly powerful clique of neoconservatives in the Donald Trump administration, is the reported presence of the Wagner Group, a Russian PMC that is no different from dozens of internationally-active British, French, and American PMCs. Wagner Group is reportedly engaged in military and logistics operations in Syria, the Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Libya, Yemen, Chad, Sudan, South Sudan, Eritrea, Zimbabwe, and Venezuela.
