Brexit betrayed: UK must obey EU laws and open borders until 2020

Brexit is short for Britain’s Exit from the European Union (EU).

On June 23, 2016, in a referendum on Brexit with a 72.2% turnout, 51.9% of the participating United Kingdom (UK) electorate voted to leave the EU.

On March 29, 2017, London invoked Article 50 of the Treaty on the European Union, according to which the UK is due to leave the EU two years later, on March 29, 2019.

But Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party government has sold out the British people who’d voted for Brexit. The extent of her betrayal is revealed in a new agreement between the UK and the EU.

New World Order

Oliver J J Lane reports for Breitbart that in a joint press conference in Brussels on March 19, 2018, Britain’s David Davis and EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, a Frenchman, unveiled a “legal text which constitutes a decisive step” towards a final agreement on Brexit.

According to this agreement:

(1) The UK will agree to follow all EU rules for years after the official Brexit of March 2019, under the guise of a “transition period” that will last until 2022.

(2) Although the UK will follow all EU rules until 2022, the UK has no power to challenge or make decisions on those rules because, as Barnier put it: “The United Kingdom will no longer participate in EU decision-making processes because after the 30th of March 2019 you will no longer be a member state [of the EU]…. Nonetheless, [the UK] . . . will be required to respect all European rules just like member states do.”

(3) During the transition period, the UK will have no control over immigration, but will keep its borders open to all EU citizens, who will have full rights forever, under a “new resident status” that gives those immigrants “legal certainty.”

(4) During the transition period, Britain will not take back control of its fisheries from the EU. The proportion of fish that UK fishermen are allowed to catch from their own waters will remain the same. This capitulation especially is bad news for fisheries and communities in Northern Ireland. Perversely, UK negotiator David Davis praised this capitulation as “protecting the interests of the United Kingdom’s fishing community”.


Democrat Rep. Tom Suozzi urges armed insurrection against President Trump

18 U.S. Code § 2382 states:

Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

On March 12, 2018, at a townhall meeting in Huntington, New York, Democrat Congressman Tom Suozzi, who represents Long Island, did precisely that, suggesting that his constituents take up arms against President Trump, in violation of 18 U.S. Code § 2382.

As reported by Carl Campanile for the New York Post, March 19, 2018, Suozzi is seen in a newly released video of his town hall appearance, in which he said:

“It’s really a matter of putting public pressure on the president. This is where the Second Amendment comes in, quite frankly, because you know, what if the president was to ignore the courts? What would you do? What would we do?”

Someone in the audience asks, “What’s the Second Amendment?”

Suozzi says, “The Second Amendment is the right to bear arms.

To rephrase what Suozzi said to his constituents in the townhall meeting:

“It’s really a matter of putting public pressure on the president. This is where the Second Amendment — the right to bear arms — comes in.”

The audience laughed — some nervously.

Republicans are not amused. National Republican Campaign Committee spokesman Chris Martin said:

“This video is incredibly disturbing. It’s surreal to watch a sitting member of Congress suggest that his constituents should take up arms against the president of the United States.”

Speaking with forked tongue, Suozzi (via his political adviser Kim Devlin) denies he was “advocating for an armed insurrection.” At the same time, he doubles down on his call to his constituents to exercise their Second Amendment right against President Trump by forwarding a line penned by Thomas Jefferson, calling for armed resistance:

“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.

Ever the hypocrite, Suozzi’s reference to the Second Amendment conflicts with his recent push for gun control following the Parkland, Florida, school shooting. He even participated in the March 14 student walkout for gun control outside the U.S. Capitol. In a February 21 tweet, Suozzi calls on the young people of his district to support more restrictive gun laws:

“I think we should engage the high school students of #NY03, and all of Long Island, to promote gun violence prevention legislation.”

Thomas Suozzi, 55, is a first-term congressman elected in 2016, and is seeking re-election this fall. He formerly served as Nassau County executive and before that, mayor of Glen Cove, NY. His father, Joseph Suozzi, had been mayor of Glen Cove.

He is expected to easily win the Democratic primary and face GOP challenger Dan Debono, a former US Navy SEAL, in the general election.

Illinois State Assembly approves gun confiscation bill

The state legislature of Illinois has approved a bill, HB 1465, which:

  • Requires 18 to 20-year-olds to hand over or transfer ownership of heretofore legally possessed “assault weapons” — which the NRA-ILA describes as commonly-owned “semi-automatic firearms” — as well as any magazines that hold more than ten rounds of ammunition.
  • Bans the sale of certain types of semi-automatic weapons to individuals under age 21.
  • Makes owning such a weapon by persons under age 21 a Class 3 felony for a first offense and a Class 2 felony for a second offense.

The government forcing people to forfeit or hand over weapons previously deemed legal is confiscation.

On February 28, 2018, the bill was passed by a vote of 64-51 in the State House of Representatives. On March 14, 2018, the Illinois State Senate passed the bill by a vote of 33-22. Both the House and Senate are controlled by a Democrat majority.

HB 1465 was introduced in Illinois’ House by Rep. Michelle Mussman (D). The bill’s 23 co-sponsors are all Democrats: 16 females, 7 males.

HB 1465 was introduced in Illinois’ Senate by Senate President John Cullerton (D-Chicago). There were 7 co-sponsors, among whom was Republican Sen. Jim Oberweis, whom the NRA had given an “A” rating in 2014.

The bill deviates from the traditional military definition of assault rifle, requiring the weapon to be capable of selective fire options like three round bursts and fully-automatic, and instead defines it as any semi-automatic rifle or pistol with a belt or magazine fed system capable of more than 10 rounds or featuring a folding stock or the ability to accept tactical attachments such as scopes. The definition also includes some .50 caliber rifles.

Critics of the gun confiscation bill were taken aback by “the idea that the government would confiscate property.” The bill’s House sponsor, Rep. Michelle Mussman, responded to these concerns by assuring them “authorities will not visit homes to pick up weapons.” Rather, “a first offense for getting caught with prohibited firearms would be a misdemeanor offense.”

After the state Senate passed the bill, HB 1465 must go back to the House for reconciliation because the Senate added an amendment, meant to attract Republican support for the bill, which would allow individuals who owned such weapons prior to the passage of the law to use that fact as an affirmative defense when facing felony charges under the legislation.

But Sen. Chapin Rose (R) told that the amendment would not necessarily protect owners of the weapons from facing felony charges if they do not surrender them. He believes the bill should have exempted current owners of the weapons from facing charges, rather than just offering them an affirmative defense while under arrest.

If Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) signs the bill, HB 1465 will become law. Residents under the age of 21 will have 90 days to turn over the guns and magazines.

Rauner recently vetoed a bill that would have required gun retailers to be licensed by the state, claiming that to be “unnecessary, burdensome regulation.” Gubernatorial vetoes can be overturned by a three-fifths majority vote in both houses of the Illinois General Assembly.

Illinois also recently passed other gun control bills in addition to the gun confiscation HB 1465:

  • The Illinois State Senate passed HB 1467, which bans bump stocks and trigger cranks, and added an amendment to that bill allowing localities to ban what it defines as assault weapons, potentially creating different gun laws on a town-by-town basis in Illinois.
  • The Illinois House of Representatives passed HB 1468, which would impose a 72-hour waiting period on purchases of items defined as assault weapons. The Senate has yet to vote on the measure.

NRA members in Illinois should read this: “Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that Second Amendment applies to individuals, not militias, and may include military weapons”.


Bombshell: Jerome Corsi says Justice Antonin Scalia was a pedophile, murdered by 13 y.o. boy

Dr. Jerome Corsi, 71, is an author and columnist for WND (WorldNetDaily) and Human Events, as well as InfoWars‘ Washington, DC bureau chief. He received his Ph.D. in political science from Harvard University in 1972.

On February 26, 2018, Right Wing Watch (RWW) posted an interview of Dr. Corsi to YouTube, in which he made the startling claim that the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was a pedophile, who was killed by a 13-year-old boy in a “bad sex incident”.

Note: Right Wing Watch is a project of People for the American Way — the left-wing advocacy group founded by TV producer Norman Lear in 1980 for the express purpose of challenging the “moral majority” of the Christian right. RWW describes itself as reporting “on the extreme rhetoric and activities of key right-wing figures and organizations by showing their views in their own words.”

In the clip below, Corsi was asked why Justice Scalia’s name is “suddenly popping up” more than two years after his death.

Corsi replied:

“What surfaced in the last week, and again this is another one that is gonna be disturbing for many people, but there’s evidence that surfaced — and I’m not gonna say it’s true — it’s not proven, but evidence surfaced. First of all, QAnon has been saying Scalia was killed, but said from the beginning he was murdered. This has been a theme from QAnon for months.

So the story is the pedophilia ranch, a boy ranch for elite to go on these so-called hunting trips and have sex with young children, with young boys. The story is being circulated and with some, again, evidence that can’t be dismissed out of hand, that has to be investigated — that there was an incident with a 13-year-old boy, the story is. And it will mean that Scalia was involved in pedophilia, and it didn’t go well, and the kid cut his throat and killed him. It was then disposed as a bad sex incident . . . .

Again, we don’t have proof of this. We’re not saying it’s true. We’re not saying this is how it happened. But if you’re investigating, you’ve got to answer certain questions, again, that don’t fit together.”


We are told that on February 13, 2016, Scalia suddenly died in his sleep in his room in Cibolo Creek Ranch, a 1,700-acre ranch and luxury hotel in west Texas, only 15 miles from the US-Mexico border. To this day, Scalia’s death is shrouded in mystery. The things “that don’t fit together” include the following:

See “13 questions to ask about Justice Antonin Scalia’s death“.

A man named David Shurter, who claims to be a victim of Satanic ritual abuse in the infamous Franklin child-prostitution ring in Omaha, Nebraska in the late 1980s to early 1990s, said he had been sexually abused by Scalia. See “Former Victim Claims Scalia Was a Pedophile“.


Australia church forced to remove ‘Jesus’ from its Easter signs

Ben Fordham reports for 2GB 873AM, March 15, 2018, that a Pentecostal church in West Gosford, New South Wales, Australia, was forced to change their Easter signs because they contain the word “Jesus”.

To advertise its Easter service, Elim Church had paid for digital signs to be displayed at a local shopping center, with the message:

Jesus is alive

But Lendlease, the property company that owns the shopping center, demanded that the word “Jesus” be dropped and the phrase “Jesus is alive” be changed to “Risen Christ”.

Elim Church’s pastor, Martin Duffy, said:

“The phrase ‘Jesus is alive’ is the core, the central message of the Christian faith and what Easter really is all about. And it’s a good message….

‘Jesus is alive’. The phrase became offensive to the people. I think there’s a minority group out there that constantly distort the message of Jesus Christ. It’s just going on and on.”

Pastor Duffy pointed out that Lendlease has no problem with lingerie displays in the shopping center, but finds Jesus offensive.

After the story broke, Lendlease issued this statement:

“It was an error of judgement to ask the church to change its messaging and we apologize unreservedly. Lendlease values diversity and inclusion and we welcome people of all backgrounds at our shopping centers.”

Sunday Devotional: ‘It was for this purpose that I came to this hour’

John 12:27-33, 24-26

“I am troubled now. Yet what should I say?
‘Father, save me from this hour’?
But it was for this purpose that I came to this hour.
Father, glorify your name.”
Then a voice came from heaven,
“I have glorified it and will glorify it again.”
The crowd there heard it and said it was thunder;
but others said, “An angel has spoken to him.”
Jesus answered and said,
“This voice did not come for my sake but for yours.
Now is the time of judgment on this world;
now the ruler of this world will be driven out.
And when I am lifted up from the earth,
I will draw everyone to myself.”
He said this indicating the kind of death he would die.

“Amen, amen, I say to you,
unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies,
it remains just a grain of wheat;
but if it dies, it produces much fruit.
Whoever loves his life loses it,
and whoever hates his life in this world
will preserve it for eternal life.
Whoever serves me must follow me,
and where I am, there also will my servant be.
The Father will honor whoever serves me.”

Today is the 5th Sunday of Lent — the 40 days in which Christians pray, fast, and make special sacrifices in remembrance of how Christ our Lord was tortured, suffered, and died for our sins.

Being God, Jesus foresaw his impending death by crucifixion — the cruelest method of execution devised by the Romans:

“He said this indicating the kind of death he would die.” -John 12:33

Though God, Jesus was also wholly human, having become incarnate in order to atone, to make right, the terrible sin of Adam and Eve.

For why it takes God to atone the sin of Adam, see my post of March 11, 2018, “Sunday Devotional: For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son”.

For why God became man in order to save humanity, see the Parable of the Farmer and the Geese in “Sunday Devotional: You were purchased at a price“.

Can you imagine the dread and horror our Lord felt, foreseeing the excruciating suffering, pain, and death He would undergo?

“I am troubled now. Yet what should I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But it was for this purpose that I came to this hour.” -John 12:27

One of the purposes of God becoming man is to show us the way — not just the way to salvation, but also as a model for how to conduct ourselves with grace and forbearance in this mortal coil of strife, troubles, suffering and tears.

He tells us to “pick up” our cross — the inevitable burdens and travails of every human life — and follow Him (Matthew 16:24), with the promise that:

“Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there also will my servant be. The Father will honor whoever serves me.” -John 12:26

So the next time you feel overwhelmed by your problems, the next time you suffer, just look at Him on the Cross. He will help you, I promise.

Jesus, I love You, with my whole heart, my whole soul, my whole mind, and with all my strength.

And may the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,
