Rush Limbaugh a couple of days ago on the House impeachment inquiry:
Now, as I have emphasized a lot, what’s going on in the country right now with this particular story is not so much a partisan divide, left versus right, conservative versus liberal, Republican versus Democrat. It’s bigger than that. What we are in the middle of — and it does not ever get presented this way in the nation’s mainstream media — we are literally the middle of constitutional crisis.
We have the entirety, almost, of the Washington government, the elites, the establishment effectively attempting an end run around the Constitution. They’re trying to reverse the election results of 2016. They’re trying to nullify them without another election. This is the height of anti-constitutional or unconstitutionalism.
This is a brazen attempt by the people in Washington to tell the rest of the country, “What you think and how you vote really doesn’t matter in the end because we’re gonna have this country run the way we want to run it with us running it. And every election is just a little exercise making you think you matter, but you really don’t.” That’s what this is. Make no mistake about it. That’s what this is.
Reading this, I couldn’t help but think that the exact same thing is happening in the UK. We’re in a constitutional crisis too. For while the Washington elites are trying to get rid of Donald Trump, the UK political elite is trying to reverse the EU referendum result. What they’re saying to the British people is:
“What you think and how you vote really doesn’t matter in the end because we’re gonna have this country run the way we want to run it with us running it. And every election is just a little exercise making you think you matter, but you really don’t.”
The Lib Dems are nothing if not honest: they simply want to revoke Article 50, and lock Britain inside Europe. But the Labour party seems to be not much different: they seem to want another referendum, and a different result, that will lock Britain inside Europe. The last thing either of them want is a General Election, letting the people decide, because, well, they want to run the country their way, damn the people.
They’ve already forced an unwilling Boris Johnson to go begging to Brussels for an extension past 31 October. And because Brussels wants to keep Britain inside the EU, Brussels will grant it. There is effectively no longer any British Government: Britain is being run directly by the EU, in concert with their allies in the UK Parliament and Supreme Court and House of Lords, which are all stuffed full of Remainers. They may as well all have EU flags flying above them. In fact, they probably do.
And with the next election on 5 May 2022, they’ve got 2½ years in which to tie Britain even more closely to the EU than it ever was before, as an EU colony with no vote in Brussels, and instead some EU-appointed satrap governing Britain (very likely John Bercow, who has after all proven his allegiance to the EU over and over again).
Will the British people sit patiently waiting to be allowed to finally vote on 5 May 2022? I doubt it. I think there’ll be huge demonstrations outside Parliament, with farm tractors dropping manure at its doors, and counter-protests by Antifa and Extinction Rebellion. Parliament’s business will come to a halt. EU-appointed Prime Minister John Bercow will have to flee Number 10, Downing Street. Where to? Brussels, of course. Britain’s Remainer Parliament will relocate to Brussels. And a hastily-raised EU army will be sent to pacify Britain.
And they’ll probably vastly increase immigration to Britain, with the assistance of the UN:
The UN Migration Agency/International Organization for Migration (IOM) has hailed the arrival of its “first” planeload of 154 Somali migrants to Germany, along with dozens of Syrians transported to Romania using European Union funds.
The IOM, which promotes mass migration as “inevitable, desirable, [and] necessary”, announced the arrival of “its first international charter flight” of 154 Somalis from Ethiopia to Germany — with “An additional 220 refugees [to] depart for Germany on a second IOM-chartered flight in mid-November” — in an official press release.
I’m speculating, of course. But this is the way things are going right now. We’re in uncharted waters.
And much the same is going to happen in the USA, with the American people getting angrier and angrier at increasingly desperate attempts to subvert their last election.
