The month of June has brought a whirlwind of news from all over the United States and the world. Some of it good, some of it fair, some startling or not so good.
The massacre in the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, brought homegrown terrorism back into the spotlight. This incident makes the second time that those who were given asylum and a chance for a new life in the United States repaid kindness with treachery.
This had nothing to do with guns, as left leaning liberals and Hollywood bleeding hearts claim, but everything to do with seventh century doctrine and those who cannot or will not intellectually progress into the twenty first century.
The biggest tragedy of both attacks is the denial of the hard facts by the current administration, choosing instead to jump on guns and the rights of the Second Amendment. Guns are inanimate, they don’t kill. People kill people.
It is also curious to note that the shooter’s wife in the Orlando massacre is now missing. The FBI and Attorney General Loretta Lynch admit that they have no idea where she has gone. She witnessed the quitclaim deed of the home she and Mateen owned to her sister in law for the sum of $10. This seems to show complacency or accessory to the attack, yet, she is lost in the system that promises the American People that it is competent enough to allow more Syrian refugees into the United States, and not to worry about terrorists slipping in past their non-existent vetting.
Moving on from terror based atrocities, Mother Nature has dealt us a few blows as well. West Virginia is flooded. California is struggling with wildfires and tornados have been confirmed to have touched down in Northern Illinois.
The month of June has delivered the news exactly like the words of the old song, The Merry Minuet, by the Kingston Trio.
“What nature doesn’t do to us, will be done by our fellow man.”
However, the startling news has come out of Great Britain. On Thursday last, the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union.
This caused great consternation among the people as the press had practically assured the people that this would not happen.
(What? Gasp! The press misleading the people? Who would have thought it possible? Can the press ever be wrong? Would they deliberately mislead?)
There were those in the UK who voted against, those who voted for and those who did not vote at all.
A great outcry at the end result of the democratic process went up. The 30% of registered voters who didn’t exercise their rights begged for another chance. Those who are weary of the bureaucracy and lack of sovereignty applauded. Those who made their fortunes from the less fortunate, work-a-day citizens by said bureaucracy went into a tail spin.
George Soros, whose MoveOn.org is rumored to be funding and training the rioters of BLM and the Trump campaign violent protests, lost a great deal of money on the BRexit.
So, as the world balances on the precipice, what is take away on the bottom line?
It can be summed up by a Parliament member speech about the UK and the rest of the world’s situation. It was given by Nigel Farage (UK Independence Party) about the situation in the EU and the world.
The mediator in the video has to be applauded as well with his statement about the beauty of democracy, pointing out to the rumbling crowd that they had the right to disagree with what speaker says, but they must have the courtesy to listen to one who has the floor.
A lesson that should be applied here in the US.
Drowning out someone who has the floor because one is of another opinion is rude and contradictory to agreement and compromise.
The “Republican Debates” are example of this lack of manners and disregard for proper procedure.
The things Mr. Farage said were true of the politicians within the EU and most emphatically, our own elected officials here in the USA.
He noted that most had never held a proper job, run any organization or ever created a single job.
He called them in denial. He called out their duplicity and deceit to the people they represent.
He asked for every representative of the various countries to act like grownups, to sit down and create a reasonable working arrangement for trade and the future, as the UK was still their friend.
Bravo, Mr. Farage!!!
The UK has taken back her sovereignty, her borders and her currency from a floundering and failing union that gave us Greece and her economic failure.
It may not be an easy ride back to dead center, but the first step has been made.
This November, the people of the United States have the same opportunity as the UK to take back the country. Bring back the jobs, prosperity, promise and opportunity to each and every one who calls this land home. Likewise, it will be a hard ride back to center, but steps and sacrifices have to be made in order to have a future that is worthy of the past.
It is time to clean house, start over and be vigilant. Every single American must call for accountability on a daily basis of the next group of elected officials and refuse to take business as usual as acceptable!
WE CANNOT REMAIN COMPLACENT ANYMORE!
