Three Arrogant, Self-Important Politicians

Breitbart:

Fellow globalist leader Emmanuel Macron has received advice from Tony Blair on how to frustrate Brexit, claims Britain’s Daily Telegraph, citing “Sources in Paris”. The newspaper reports Mr Blair has spoken to President Macron, and met with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to discuss Brexit, and has advised Europe to give Britain no concessions at all, and that such hard-ball tactics will see London eventually give up on Brexit altogether.

I’m not surprised. Arrogant people like Blair and Macron think they know what’s good for everyone else.

The claims of Blair’s conduct is the latest development in his tireless lobbying against the Brexit vote, which saw him join with fellow former leader John Major to support then Prime Minister David Cameron’s campaign to keep Britain in the European Union in the run-up to the 2016 Brexit vote. After the nation elected to leave the European Union, Blair switched tactics and started a campaign for a second referendum just days after the votes of the first has been counted.

Blair, of course, was the British Prime Minister who brought in the UK smoking ban: another example of knowing what’s best for everyone else.

Macron has complete contempt for the French. And Blair has complete contempt for the British.

And so does Al Gore.

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore has branded British politicians “cowards” for failing to push their voters into a re-run of the 2016 referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union.

If the people give the wrong answer, they must be asked again until they give the right answer.

Brussels and its supporters have form on subverting referendums which do not go in their favour, pushing through re-runs of Denmark’s referendum on the Maastricht Treaty which transformed the European Community into the European Union in 1992, and Ireland’s referendum on the Nice Treaty increased the bloc’s powers over its member-states in 2001.

Referendums rejecting the proposed European Constitution in the Netherlands and France were worked around by repackaging it as the so-called Reform Treaty, or Lisbon Treaty, amending the previous Maastricht Treaty and Treaty of Rome — and not putting it to the public in either country this time.

Lisbon was subject to a referendum in Ireland, where the constitution required a public vote to authorise any transfer of sovereignty to outside forces, and was rejected by the Irish people — but, as with Nice, they were simply made to vote again.

Most recently, a Dutch referendum rejecting the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and a Greek referendum against punishing bailout measures agreed by a previous agreement were simply ignored.

These people don’t believe in democracy. They believe that a small elite should rule, and tell everyone else how to live their lives, in the most minute detail.

Of course Al Gore has also recently been taking shots at Donald Trump as well:

Gore, who has spent years raising awareness of global warming and advocating prevention strategies, said on Wednesday, “It may be a perverse step forward to have Donald J. Trump as the global face of climate denial because so much of what he says is nonsense.”…

Of course, this is far from the first instance in which Gore has criticized President Trump’s stance on climate change. In a wide-ranging interview with PBS’s Judy Woodruff in October, Gore called the president’s deregulation proposals “literally insane.”

These people – Macron, Blair, and Gore – are all so immensely self-important. And that’s why people hate them and politicians like them so much. And that’s why there’s a global populist wave of revulsion towards them all.

Macron wants to make the French people stop smoking, and Blair – as noted – introduced the UK smoking ban. What’s Gore’s view on smoking?

He [Gore] went on to accuse those who express the loudest doubts about whether humans are contributing to climate change of “doing exactly the same thing that the tobacco industry did after the Surgeon General’s report came out” linking smoking to cancer. “They hired actors and dressed them up as doctors and gave them scripts” saying that smoking isn’t harmful. Today, said Gore, “carbon polluters” are paying for climate change doubters to say similar things.

    And these people whinge that the referendum they held in Crimea to join the Russian Federation was somehow fake. (96.7% of those who voted said yes).

    (BTW Recently had a chat with a lady who hails from Donetsk. I said, “oh you’re a Ukrainian”.

    That was a dreadful mistake, leaving me subject to a 20 minute bollocking that Donetsk is a part of Russia, that she’s Russian, that she’s always been Russian, and the Ukrainians are (not very nice people) and corrupt as well.

    Later, when she’d calmed down – like about a week later – she confirmed my own fears of fast tracking Ukraine into the EU).

    “They [the tobacco industry] hired actors and dressed them up as doctors and gave them scripts”
    I have never seen evidence of this.

    • Smoking Lamp says:

      It seems the actual charlatans reciting from contrived scripts are ten tobacco controllers themselves. After all the lies and manipulated data presented by the likes of James Repace (MSc) who calls himself a ‘second hand smoke consultant) and Stanton Glantz (PhD) who crafted numerous falsified studies on the benefits of smoking bans by presenting the data as ‘heart attack miracles’ (which by the way were manipulated to the point of being outright lies) formed the foundation for the persecution of smokers while exaggerating their ‘medical’ credentials.

    • Frank Davis says:

      From the link above:

      WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump is proposing adding a user fee to e-cigarettes to fund FDA oversight of new tobacco and nicotine products as part of an effort to reduce use by teenagers, according to his budget proposal released on Monday.

      The budget estimated that the fee could bring in as much as $100 million a year.

      The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has cracked down on e-cigarette makers during the past year as a teenage usage has surged. There is currently not a user fee on e-cigarettes.

      U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat who proposed a similar fee on e-cigarettes, praised Trump for including the measure in his budget.

      “I’m glad the Trump administration is weighing-in and making it clear that it’s past time to tackle the crisis of youth e-cigarette use,” the senator said in a statement. “I hope to work with the administration as I rally bipartisan support for my legislation in Congress.”

      • Joe L. says:

        How many other products that you can purchase have a “user fee” attached to their price? I assume they don’t want to call it what it is–a TAX–because many Trump supporters (and right-leaners in general) would be up in arms if Trump were to approve a raise in taxes. This is pathetic and insulting to all Americans.

  3. Lepercolonist says:

    “I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes” (Barack
    Obama, September 12, 2008, Dover, NH).

    Today, on the sixteenth day of his presidency, Barack Obama broke one of the central promises of his candidacy: No American earning under $250,000 per year would face any form of tax increase under his administration. By signing the S-CHIP legislation today, Obama has now broken his oft-repeated promise.

    Obama’s signature puts into effect a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack.

    Can’t trust anything these politicians promise.
