Brexit Is Really a Vote Against Washington Control Over Europe

George Washington's picture

It is historically documented that the European Union was largely created by the CIA, U.S. State Department and other Americans interests.

The U.S. has used the EU to push pro-bank, pro-austerity, anti-little-guy policies throughout the European continent.

And the U.S. has used the EU to back American regime-change campaigns in Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, Syria and beyond … causing the flood of refugees into Europe in the first place.

Indeed, a global poll shows that the U.S. is considered the greatest threat to world peace by the rest of the world.  The Reuters poll revealed that many European countries – including the following nations – consider the U.S. to be the world’s top threat (Table 6):

And the UK itself considers the U.S. as essentially tied with Iran as being the biggest threat to world peace.

Michael Hudson, Distinguished Research Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, who has advised the U.S., Canadian, Mexican and Latvian governments as well as the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, notes:

Almost all the Europeans know where the immigrants are coming from. And the ones that they’re talking about are from the near East. And they’re aware of the fact that most of the immigrants are coming as a result of the NATO policies promoted by Hillary and by the Obama administration.

 

The problem began in Libya. Once Hillary pushed Obama to destroy Libya and wipe out the stable government there, she wiped out the arms–and Libya was a very heavily armed country. She turned over the arms to ISIS, to Al-Nusra, and Al-Qaeda. And Al-Qaeda used these arms under U.S. organization to attack Syria and Iraq. Now, the Syrian population, the Iraqi population, have no choice but to either emigrate or get killed.

 

So when people talk about the immigration to Europe, the Europeans, the French, the Dutch, the English, they’re all aware of the fact that this is the fact that Brussels is really NATO, and NATO is really run by Washington, and that it’s America’s new Cold War against Russia that’s been spurring all of this demographic dislocation that’s spreading into England, spreading into Europe, and is destabilizing things.

 

So what you’re seeing with the Brexit is the result of the Obama administration’s pro-war, new Cold War policy.

 

***

 

The right wing was, indeed, pushing the immigrant issue, saying wait a minute, they’re threatening our jobs. But the left wing was just as vocal, and the left wing was saying, why are these immigrants coming here? They’re coming here because of Europe’s support of NATO, and NATOs war that’s bombing the near East, that is destabilizing the whole Near East, and causing a flight of refugees not only from Syria but also from Ukraine. In England, many of the so-called Polish plumbers that came years ago have now gone back to Poland, because that country’s recovered.

 

But now the worry is that a whole new wave of Ukrainians–and basically the U.S. policy is one of destabilization–so even the right-wing, while they have talked about immigrants, they have also denounced the [inaud.] fact that the European policy is run by the United States, and that you have both Marine Le Pen in France saying, we want to withdraw from NATO; we don’t want confrontation with Russia. You have the left wing in England saying, we don’t want concentration in Russia. And last week when I was in Germany you had the Social Democratic Party leaders saying that Russia should be invited back into the G8, that NATO was taking a warlike position and was hurting the European economy by breaking its ties with Russia and by forcing other sanctions against Russia.

 

So you have a convergence between the left and the right, and the question is, who is going to determine the terms on which Europe is broken up and put back together? Will it simply be the right wing that’s anti-immigrants? Or will it simply be the left saying we want to restructure the economy in a way that essentially avoids the austerity that is coming from Brussels, on the one hand, and from the British Conservative Party on the other.

 

And again, you have Geert Wilders, the leader of the Dutch nationalists, saying, we want Holland to have its own central bank. We want to be in charge of our own money. And under Brussels, we cannot be in charge of our own money. That means we cannot run a budget deficit and spend money into the economy, and recover with a Keynesian-type policy.

 

So the whole withdrawal from Europe means withdrawing from austerity. If you look at the voting pattern in London, in England, you had London to stay in. You had the university centers, Oxford and Cambridge, voting to stay in. You had the working class, the old industrial areas of the north and the south. You had the middle class and the industrial class saying, we’re getting a really bad deal from Europe. We want to oppose austerity. And we don’t want Brussels to give us not only the anti-labor, pro-bank policies, but also the trade policy that Brussels was trying to push onto Europe, the Obama trade agreement that essentially would take national economic policy out of the hands of government and put it into the hands of corporate bureaucracy, corporation courts. And the bureaucracy in Brussels, then, is largely pro-bank, pro-corporate, and anti-labor.

 

***

 

So you could say that the vote to withdraw from Europe is, it’s really a vote of the British middle class, the working class, to withdraw from the U.S. neoliberalism that has been running Europe for the last ten years.

I think the immigrant issue woke UK up to the increasingly apparent lose of sovereignty to eh.

So what is happening in us where our own government has found that it can completely mislead and ignore the public. Who will we separate from and what will it take to cause it. 

We should not take Europe so lightly when we are about to be dominated by hitlery.

 You are being played, sucker!

Trump came out gangbusters for Brexit --- the proper liberal and pro-worker response!  (Bernie also came out for it, of course!)

Curiously, Hillary Rodham Clinton sounded very wishy-washy, very iffy about it --- the expected neocon response.

Many years ago I was given an excellent lesson in forensic finance by a retired certified fraud examiner --- and forensic accountant.

This came about when we took a break from our political action group and were viewing a public service advert on TV for starving African children in the Congo.

He patiently walked me through the identity of the foundation owners who sponsored those adverts --- the same owners of the mining companies and oil companies who supported and financed the bloody dictators who created the conditions of turmoil and starvation.

So those who made the bodyguard (Joseph Mobutu --- later to be known as Mobutu Sese Seko)  of the popularly elected humanist, Patrice Lumumba, into a multi-billionaire ---  after first torturing then murdering President Lumumba and subjecting the populace to decades of strife and starvation --- are the sponsors of those adverts?

So those who are always urging us to donate to feed the starving  are the same ones who caused and profited from that turmoil and human suffering?

Yes --- the evil ones who cause those crimes demand the rest of us pay for their crimes many times over!

To fully understand why the money masters of North America and Europe are against Brexit --- and collective bargaining rights for workers in the U.K. which those laws out of Brussels have destroyed --- please take the time to read sixteen or seventeen pages from the book by Nicholas Shaxson:  Treasure Islands (pp. 67 --- 83).

It is both fitting and obscene that the SecState, John Forbes Kerry --- or to be more exact, John Forbes Winthrop Dudley Kerry --- great-grandson of Francis Blackwell Forbes, once one of the top dope dealers (opium) on the planet, has been dispatched to Brussels on the Brexit matter.

Most fitting . . . .

Reading Suggestions:

Treasure Islands, by Nicholas Shaxson

Glitter & Greed, by Janine Roberts  (This is the best treatment I have ever read of the assassination of Patrice Lumumba, pp. 174 --- 184.)

its all about economic development. read Jim Rickards on the BELLEs. the Cold War resolution was easier with Cuba, do you want to sit here and listen to bongo music, or do you want to make some money? the new Cold War is about corporatism. government and business are one, Jim Willie calls it the Mussolini Fascist Business Model. Obama is a global banking executive bombing Taliban weddings with Drone fighters because they won't let their kids be indoctrinated in western schools. (they feel the same way in rural America by the way which is why the new Cold War is government versus the people) you don't need a conspiracy flowchart, once you have the basic assumptions the pieces all fall into place and Bush and Obama are no different than Trump and Clinton2.

Considering that every American president has done nothing but improve his golf handicap since 1952 then GW is correct. Dwight “MIC” Eisenhower admitted as much in 1960 in his live farewell address to the American people.  Ike’s reviled vice-President attempted some reform of deep state and was brought down in a press coup over 10 years later. Similarly, Jimmy Carter only lasted 4 years his own failures anticipated in Coppola’s silly film “Apocalypse Now”. “The Godfather” was a much better piece of work and captured the zeitgeist:

“Tattaglia is a pimp. He never could have outfought Santino. But I didn’t know until this day that it was Barzini all along.”

Well it was Uncle Sam all along with European Catholics as the pimps. Astonishingly the CIA even managed to infiltrate the Vatican via the American Jesuits and German proxies.

All this so Americans can dine out on shit food?

Dead Kennedys's picture

The problem started end of the '70s, early 80s when the US (Brzezinski, Carter and Reagan) together with the Gulf States and Pakistan, provided major sponsoring to the mudjahedin in Afghanistan to drive the Russians out.

Result muslim extremism, wahabis all over the place...... and 9/11

When their job was done in Afghanistan, the jihadis were flewn over to Yugoslavia to stir some sht there in co-op with the KLA.

A bit later another bright US mind(less) Soros came to the idea that all former soviet states and Middle East countries deserve their chance on democrazy (corporate fascism in a new jacket), whammm....color revolutions.....arab springs everywhere.

Etc..etc

In short as a result of US marvelous foreign policy for instance the PNAC plan and close support of their best buddies in the UK they have stirred a tremendous heap of SHT........and now when the SHT hits the fan, migrants fleeing to EU......the UK and US dont wanne suffer the consequenses of their SHT stirring

It took them 200+ years, but, it looks like the Brits finally paid us back for the American Revolution. And what better way to do it than with a smackdown of oppressive, hegamonious, and unsustainable HillBama international politics and fiscal policy.

I don't know why you have the handle, George Washington when you hate on America at every opportunity.

No, the Brexit vote was about Muslim invasion and Britain first.

Actually, the Brexit was about reclaiming collective bargaining rights, destroyed by Brussels, and self-rule.

You're right - it was a vote against the EU, which is NATO ruled by the US that is ruled by the Zionists controlling Israel that control our political system through AIPAC.

It always gets back to the Zionist Globalists attempting to takeover the world manipulating events and the masses as usual.  Because of the internet these deadly criminal parasites can no longer depend of secrecy and they are finally being exposed.

"So you could say that the vote to withdraw from Europe is, it’s really a vote of the British middle class, the working class, to withdraw from the U.S. neoliberalism that has been running Europe for the last ten years."

and here you confuse US neo-liberalism with US neo-conservativism. on purpose, GW?

look, it's not that difficult. the eur = balanced budgets. it's 19 countries against neo-Keynesianism. the slur against that: Austerity. arguably Britons are divided, on that

the EU = regulatory environment and trade zone. all depends on TTIP. with it, it's complete globalization, and GMO frankenfood from the US to Europe, with megacorporations roaming this part of the world free from any shackles or oversight from national tribunals. that's neoliberalism, the economic part. the EU is either used for those purposes... or exactly what contains and moderates those forces. all open, all not yet clear. but yes, the EU as such is a somewhat liberal construct... with protectionistic features that are potentially exactly what neo-liberals would hate, hate, hate

meanwhile, US neo-conservativism is focused on war, ammo, oil, Saudi Arabia and Israel. the last two aren't even allies and members of NATO, remember?

sometimes I have the impression that the biggest problem of our American Cousins is that they can only use one political vocabulary

if they can spell globalization, they can't spell globalism. if they can spell globalism, they can't spell globalization

if they can moan about neo-liberalism, they can't moan about neo-conservativism. if they can moan about neo-cons, then not about neo-liberals

a lack of political center, of anything even remotely resembling moderation

Brits found that if asked, they go for the national model, period. this put some faith in the Westminster Parliament and the British Courts of Law. that's it, actually

both neo-liberalism and neo-conservativism will have to try to tackle this new european formation... until the US stops supporting them, that is

No institution that rejects a sound monetary system can be considered to be against Keynesianism.  The Euro is not backed by gold nor is it in any shape and form gold friendly.  Instead, The ECB colludes with the Fed, Wall Street, the City of London, and even the Chinese government, to manipulate and distort the prices of EVERYTHING.

 

Since EVERYONE knows this to be a fact, you are a liar.

 

The European Union collaborates with the United States and rubber stamps everything the Americans want, incuding the Americans' worldwide orgy of mass torture, mass rape and mass murder throughout the world.  Even after the Americans said, "fuck the E.U."  The Europeans shot themselves in the foot and placed sanctions against Russia at their masters the Americans' command.  So the EU is not against anything American, including what comes out of the Americans' collective anus.  In fact, the Europeans lap that stuff up as though it were manna from Heaven.

 

EVERYONE knows all of this, including you, filth.

 

You are a liar and an insidious scumbag bankers' dog.

Ghordius's picture

"No institution that rejects a sound monetary system can be considered to be against Keynesianism"

how... puritan. it's either gold or it's Keynesian. how about... balanced budgets?

"The Euro is not backed by gold nor is it in any shape and form gold friendly"

not completely right. the EUR is theoretically backed by some gold, and the EUR is gold... neutral

do you understand the concept of neutral? meaning: don't care, bring it on... or not

"The European Union collaborates with the United States and rubber stamps everything the Americans want"

yes, we europeans regard Americans as a kind of "our children", or something. with fondness, at times. and sometimes exasperation

TTIP would be a good proof for that. if it goes trough, I'd say you are right, and btw I will call for the disbandment of the EU

If TTIP does not go through... then I would see your argument as somewhat disproved

your ad-homs don't improve your arguments, btw

Maestro Maestro's picture

 

 

You say:"how... puritan. it's either gold or it's Keynesian. how about... balanced budgets?"

To the best of my knowledge,

"...The EU has never presented the world with a certified budget, because it is so rife with corruption that the accountants cannot get (or are told not to get) to the bottom of it."

You say: "not completely right. the EUR is theoretically backed by some gold, and the EUR is gold... neutral"

Answer: You are lying.  The Euro is NOT backed by gold to any degree nor associated with gold in any shape or form.  You are probably part of the anti gold-as-money Freegold cult to disseminate such lies, methinks.

You say: "yes, we europeans regard Americans as a kind of "our children", or something. with fondness, at times. and sometimes exasperation"

I say: like when they refuse to give you head before your viagra pop runs out of steam?  Fuck you and fuck the Americans who are ISIS itself.

Keep providing public evidence that you are a liar and a troll working for the bankers and assorted treasonous governments.

 

 

Ghordius's picture

your best of knowledge needs and update

the EU budget is now audited... and irrelevant. it's the national european budgets (plural) that matter

the ECB's first balance sheet item is... gold. meanwhile, "backed by gold" means the CB buys and sells gold, remember? no, nobody is doing that, currently

the EUR is designed to cope with... both regimes. neutral means just that: not partisan

"Fuck you and fuck the Americans who are ISIS itself."

fine, as european I am used to that. but what or who are you?

Maestro Maestro's picture

 

 

American government sanctions and encourages fraud by legalizing and promoting "mark to model" accounting.  Therefore, the US dollar represents fraud.  US dollars make up most of ECB's reserves, to the best of my knowledge.  NOTHING western central banks say about their gold reserves can be substantiated as 1)they are fraudulently reported; and 2)the very same central banks allow the bullion banks (that own said central banks) that they are supposed to regulate, to sell 500 or more times gold then they have in possession.  That's called fraud.

Therefore,

US dollar based or backed ANYTHING is fraud, including the ECB, the Euro AND of course ALL the national governments in the EU and their respective budgets.  That's factual.

 

Beyond that,

 

We all know that all pro-EU politicians are scumbags and nothing they say can be trusted.

"And the U.S. has used the EU to back American regime-change campaigns in Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, Syria and beyond … causing the flood of refugees into Europe in the first place."

no, GW. sorry, but here you are confusing too much the EU and the member states

yes, Ukraine. first time some cooperation was tried between US, the EU as such and in that case, Ukraine

and what did we get out of that? a tape from Russia where we hear that Nuland could not care a fuck what the EU wanted there

Ghordius's picture

"It is historically documented that the European Union was largely created by the CIA, U.S. State Department and other Americans interests."

a kind of dogma, eh?

Romans set up the First Empire. 1'000 years. Charlemain founded the Second Empire. another 1'000 years

Napoleon tried to found the Third. All we got out of that is a lousy T-shirt, an excellent Civil Law Code and Beethoven's Third Symphony on the matter

then you-know-who tried to found again the Third. since then Americans know only that part of european history

but carry on with this myth, it's amusing. so on what will the CIA and the State Dep focus? on the UK or on the Continent? who is BFF of the US? Five Eyes, anybody?

wildbad's picture

I don't think it helps to be doctrinaire about "who" started the €U.  Bilderberg, CIA, Rothschild...The fact that it is here now and is hell bent on bending any concept of democracy to its evil will should be enough.

That the mis-Leaders in Germany, France, Engliand et al. Are all members of NATO and do THEIR evil will against the desires of their individual public and laws should be enough for any thinking person to desire revolution against this atrocity.

 

While the self-appointed elite signal their virtue in wreath laying ceremonies but manufacture and sell arms, and continually choose war as a first foreign policy option should be enough to warrant their removal by ANY means.

 

The terrorists are in charge.  They own the media and still shape public opinion through fear mongering and divicive social policy.  They wear ties and walk red carpets and create ceremonies and steal the productivity of millions of humans.  They hide their objectives behind empty rhetoric appealing to good natured fools and march steadily on to consolidate their ill gained power.

 

They must be stopped by ANY means.

Ghordius's picture

wildbad, I reject that "€U"

there is the EU. 28 members, one, the UK, leaving it, so eventually 27. it's about trade and regulations and the Four Freedoms

there is the EuroSystem, aka ECB, aka eurozone. 19 members, it's about monetary matters. the UK is not part of it

there is the Schengen Agreement. 26 members. it's about border controls. the UK is not part of it. Switzerland, btw, is part of it

there is NATO. it's a military alliance. it includes Turkey but not the KSA nor Israel

look, if you can't tell the various clubs apart, you can't say anything worthwile about those european matters

here, lots of small countries without the ultimate luxury of even dreaming of going utterly isolationistic

we have treaties, and arrangements, and alliances, and so on. it's part and parcel of both territory and traditions

the UK has 22'000 active treaties. that's reality, european style, actually world-style

wildbad's picture

@Ghordius, howdy.  I like your  thoughtful posts.  It may seem important to be able to tell the clubs apart but since they are driven by the same forces, created by the same forces and have the singular goal of ruling over vast swaths of humanity without that populist consent, I reserve the right to a little reductionism in my statements.

 

Its not that I can't draw distinctions between the various octupi arms of the globalist onslought, its that, when framing the general argument for freedom, and against concerted tyranny, its often more productive to focus on the common points rather than on the differences in tactics or particular membership.

Ghordius's picture

I beg to differ. consider the EUR

who is behind the concept? people like me. what do we want? Price Stability

how do you achieve Price Stability? gold? only if others, foreigners allow it. and they can be quite uncooperative about it, mind

so how do you achieve Price Stability... alone? you can't, long term, if you are small. so you have to band together

what is the way to have Price Stability, then? the ECB and... balanced budgets. hence the EU Fiscal Compact

Price Stability is the goal. gold is a a possible tool for that goal. try to have un-balanced budgets with gold, and see what I mean

Faceberg's picture

@Ghordius: I disagree with many of your positions, but it's nice (if somewhat unusual) to see comments rising to the level of reasoned discourse. The Zerohedge comment section almost invariably descends into a pathetic confirmation bias echochamber of asinine one-liners.

If I could figure out a way to filter the comment sections for the words "Bilderberg, Zionist, Fucktard, etc.", they might even be worth reading. Sometimes it seems like the up vs down arrows is counting mechanism to indicate how many Fox news readers have joined us for the hour...
