David Cameron

by -

The people of the UK held a referendum to make a decision to stay in the European Union or get out. Last night they voted to get out.

All the pundits were wrong, all the bookies were wrong and all the polls were wrong. Every “professional” journalist or political pundit thought they would stay. This is a truly shocking moment.

Voting to leave the EU mean that the UK can become its own independent country again and they won’t have to pay the taxes to the EU for the goods they make at home anymore.

The biggest worry is about trade. Currently, there are no taxes or tariffs to trade to other EU countries, but hat will change. It will take some time for the UK to pull out of the EU; it won’t happen immediately. Experts say it could take two to four years for the UK to fully “untangle” from the EU.

85% of the people who supported the Brexit also wanted the Prime Minister, David Cameron, to stay on and help with the transition, but he has resigned too. Cameron should have stayed on to offer his country some stability during this monumental move and this very divisive time in history.

The UK is divided heavily and by choosing to leave the EU, the economy is going to be rocked for a little while. The British Pound is down to the numbers it had back in 1985 and the Euro is also down considerably.

Any fall in the value of the Euro or the Pound will cause the dollar to increase in value, so in the very short term it will benefit the US economy. This is also a time to buy some gold if you can.

The main thing that his happening here is that the UK wants to be able to take control of their borders. They don’t want the open border system with Europe and the Syrian refugee crisis is what solidified the win for the “leave” voters.

The citizens of the UK are as concerned about open borders as we are in America and there is no doubt that the conservatives in the UK had a major win last night. Can that happen here in America? Yes.

Donald Trump must be feeling pretty good today about the Brexit. It means that there is a conservative movement happening around the globe that is standing up for nationalism and the right to protect sovereign borders. The shock that Britain woke up to this morning is the same shock that could happen in America on November 5th.

With the UK leaving the European Union, this will be the true beginning of the fall of the EU. Citizens in countries like France, Italy and the Netherland are also pushing for a referendum. The EU could be over by 2022.

The leave makes supporters like Hillary and Obama on the wrong side of the people. They supported David Cameron in thinking that the UK should stay in the EU. Another sign that the nationalism that Trump supports is what is important to the people.

The one thing that the UK is going to have to deal with immediately is that many of the smaller countries in the UK wanted to stay. Scotland and Ireland wanted to stay in the EU, but they were out-voted. The first thing that needs to happen is someone needs to take the reigns in the UK and bring the islands back together. The vote has happened and now they all have to figure out a way to make it work.

The vote last night is the largest geopolitical movement since the end of the cold war. The effects of this vote will resonate all over Europe and the world and we are literally witnessing history.

Congratulations to the United Kingdom for voting for independence.

Panama Papers

Hillary Clinton has done her best to divert attention of what happened in Benghazi and her email server and continues to lead the Democratic nomination for President, but her Panama connection could make it all crumble.

What are the Panama Papers? Last week, Mossak Fonseca were the victims of a major leak of confidential information that is larger than the Snowden leaks.

Mossak Fonseca is a law firm in Panama that offers “comprehensive legal and trust services” according to their website. A well-known newspaper in Germany got a call from someone with over 11.5 million documents and wanted to hand them over free of charge. The person simply said “I want to make these crimes public”, and they certainly did.

Basically the files contain secrets from some world leaders and people in high political places that have stashed money in “tax havens” around the world to avoid paying taxes in their own country, but that is just scratching there surface. What has happened so far?

Well, the Prime Minister of Iceland quit shortly after the release. David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, was on the list and his approval rating has dropped, and we are just starting to see the fallout in the UK.

People like Vladamir Putin were on the list, and some very interesting facts came out when looking closer to Russia in the Panama Papers and how it all relates to Hillary Clinton.

One of Russia’s biggest banks uses The Podesta Group to lobby for them inside the United States. Tony and John Podesta started the company, and you may remember John from being Bill Clinton’s chief of staff. The Podesta Group offers its clients access to the real Democratic decision makers. They have real access.

The unique access to the power structure of Democrats in Washington is exactly why the Russian bank used the lobbying firm. The people listed to handle the Russian Bank’s lobbying on behalf of The Podesta Group are Tony Podesta, Stephen Rademaker and David Adams.

Stephen and David were former assistant secretaries of state and Tony Podesta has organized a lot of those high dollar donations for Hillary Clinton that Bernie Sanders is always talking about.

Now here is the kicker. John Podesta has unique access to Hillary Clinton. Why? He is her campaign manager. He is the one building the strategy to get her in the White House. The same guy whose brother and company is lobbying for Russia to cut some of the sanctions after the country invaded Ukraine.
This is unparalleled access and it is just the tip of the iceberg. The person who is leading the Democratic nomination for president has her chief of staff also running a company that is working for Russia as a lobbyist.

The whole story is just starting to come out and Hillary’s future may not rest in the FBI with the email scandal, but in a bunch of leaked documents from Panama.
