Brexit series for FT.

Hello this is Darrell Castle with today’s pod cast. Today is Friday July 1, 2016 and on today’s pod cast we are going to discuss the popular referendum (commonly known as Brexit) recently held in the United Kingdom in which the British people by a vote of 51.9% to 48.1% voted to leave the European Union. The vote was non binding of course, and Parliament has the final say but this was still perhaps the most significant referendum held in Europe in many, many years.

As an anti-globalist and someone who values the independence of his own country, I took a special delight in the vote. The vote gave a sense of encouragement to independence minded people around the world. Finally we have a victory. Finally something we can point to and tell the self appointed elite intellectuals who run the world that there are more of us than there are of them.

It was a historic restoration of the Old World’s ancient liberties. Perhaps it was a restoration of that great charter of liberty, the Magna Charta. It was certainly the loudest repudiation of the collectivist policies of the new socialist world with its growing leviathan of rule by remote, unelected bureaucrats, who continually work to subvert the democratic process. Perhaps I am so giddy I am exaggerating the effect but I don’t think so.

I know that the elite are not finished and as we speak they work in dark cabal to undo the vote and put the masses back where they belong. Foreign Policy Magazine, the publication of the Council on Foreign Relations carried a column by member James Traub who argued that the elite need to “rise up” against the “mindlessly angry” ignorant masses in order to prevent globalization from being derailed by the populist revolt that led to Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump. Mr. Traub went on to say that Brexit was a citizen’s revolt and an utter repudiation of bankers and economists and an example of how extremism has gone mainstream. He called for the establishment Parties in Europe and the United States to combine their efforts to “keep out the nationalists.”

Mr. Traub’s tone in the article was one of utter contempt toward those “ignorant masses” who still love their countries, their values and their religions. He described the pro-Trump people as “know nothing” voters and he sneers down his patrician nose at the voters in Poland who express concern for their values and tradition. Further globalization he said will pit the poor and non-white marginal people against working-class whites or as he calls them angry fist shakers.

So Mr. Traub, a Harvard graduate from a super-billionaire family that owns the Bloomingdale’s chain of luxury department stores does not know or care how immigration, globalization, job off-shoring, etc. impact ordinary people. He and his elite friends are completely disconnected from reality but instead of humility they just double down on contempt driving many into the arms of Trump and ensuring many more Brexit like votes.

I’m very glad that he said what he said because it draws the battle lines and lets us know for sure what’s at stake in this war that we are finally starting to recognize. These elite seek everything we have including our values, tradition, religion, freedom, way of life, privacy, and even our kids.

While all this was going on the leaders of Canada, Mexico, and the United States met in Ottawa to “deepen their economic ties in light of uncertainty in the European Union. All this talk from the elite rulers tells me that the democratic process is dead. We, that is the masses are not qualified to decide anymore. Mr. Enrique Pieta Nieto, President of Mexico openly called for the nations of Mexico, The United States and Canada to merge. Martin Schultz, President of the EU Parliament was quoted as saying; “It is not the EU philosophy that the crowd can decide its fate.”

So we know now for certain that world government is here and our fate, as Mr. Schultz puts it, is to be decided by our betters who are far above us in “the crowd.” Meanwhile the leaders of Germany and France used Brexit to announce their plan of a European Superstate in which all armies, trade economies, and sovereignty would be surrendered to Brussels to form a single massive State. Plans include the United States, Asia and possibly Africa.

Here in America Republican establishment leaders announce openly that they are not willing t5o accept the vote of the people who overwhelmingly prefer Mr. Trump. Some people don’t seem to understand how sinister and dangerous for self government their attitude is.

Democracy, defined simply as self government is dead then but while the people still have a voice it might be revived. That opportunity will not last long.

The good news is that we can win. Brexit has shown us that we can win. Just as the inspiring leadership of Winston Churchill inspired those young men in their Hurricanes and Spitfires to go into the skies and defeat Nazi Germany Brexit can inspire us to rise up and throw off the collectivist yoke.

Here in the United States we can use the inspiration to lead a movement out of the United Nations, NATO, NAFTA, TPP, CAFTA, GATT, WTO and the like. Every one of the alphabet international agencies run out of the U.N. with US taxpayer money should be abandoned. This can now happen because we have seen the impossible happen in Britain.

We were told that if Brexit happened the world economy would collapse, there’d be widespread chaos and panic around the world perhaps even a world war. Well it happened and the only ones panicking appear to be the elites. The actual elites, not the pretenders and mouthpieces like Mr. Traub, are not panicking at all. No they see Brexit for what it is, an opportunity for them to expand power and control.

The deal seems to work something like this; you somehow know in advance with at least a reasonable degree of certainty what the vote will be. In anticipation of the markets inevitable fall you short the most vulnerable stocks and funds. Then when the vote is exactly as you knew it would be you scream bloody murder through your owned and captive propaganda arm, i. e. the mainstream media that the economy is collapsing just as you predicted. The word collapse is used over and over in your captive media. Surprise, the world markets fall back 8% to 10% and your media start screaming for government intervention to save the markets for the small investors and working people. In comes the United States government with billions in taxpayer money to buy equities and up goes the market again. Meanwhile the elite insiders have liquidated short positions and bought back into the market at rock bottom which they then ride all the way back up.

Is this capitalism? No this is the very definition of socialism, that is, private companies owned by government.

They make billions while working stiffs lose trillions. The small investors, the pension funds that hold the retirement of working people are all killed. The owned government and its owned propaganda ministry scream that we can’t have these uprisings in this new interrelated world. The global world is just too connected for such quaint concepts as sovereignty.

Independence is a growing sentiment worldwide. People are frustrated with business as usual and politics usual. People are tired of a socialistic economy disguised as capitalism which runs for the benefit of the banks and super billionaires at the expense of everyone else. Their system of creating money on their computers benefits them and impoverishes everyone else.

What should we do then? Go back to the Declaration of Independence and read it. Declare independence from this enslaving globalist system. Get out of the U.N. and NATO. We are told by the owned media that NATO is necessary to deter Russian aggression but in reality all it does is keep cold war hostilities going for the benefit of the military industrial complex. End the Federal Reserve and return control of our monetary system to Congress. Withdraw from the free trade agreements and make our own deals; Trade with everyone, friends with everyone of good will.

If you think these things would be good or even worth a try we have only 4 months left to save self government.

I will make it happen. No one else will and you can count on that.

At least that’s the way I see it.

Until next time this is Darrell Castle

Thanks for listening.
