Brexit Update: The First Rule of Holes.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

“Doesn’t the Prime Minister realize that she has handed over power…The power that they want, is to be able to demonstrate [EU power] to every other country that might be thinking of leaving the EU.”

-Dennis Skinner (MP-Labour/1970-present)

What a difference a day makes, or in the case of UK parliamentary political theatre applied to the ever-changing definition of Brexit; just a couple of hours will do.

Despite her Cabinet having been found inContempt of Parliament for the first time in UK history due to the cover-up of portions of the very damning Attorney General’s report on Brexit, UK Prime Minister- for now- Theresa May showed her continued contempt: she continued undaunted.

On Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2018, the day before the finale- the Vote -of this two-and-a-half year debacle anxiously awaited by Britons month-after-month, and still somehow called Brexit, our plucky PM would suddenly pull the rug out from under her own continuing farcical sideshow of Parliamentary and Prime Ministerial treason.

Unfortunately for the UK, Ms May, the Energizer Bunny of UK politics, just won’t quit. Does she not know about the first rule of holes?

Brexit: Theresa May Goes Greek!

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Regularly presidents, prime ministers, congresspersons and parliamentarians worldwide negate the democratic will of their nation’s voters by refusing to support legitimate election results. Strangely, their treasonous actions continue without serious reprisal or punishment by the voter. This emboldens them. The reality of votes cast and “democracy” past does not does bode well for the people of the United Kingdom, their future as a nation or their hopeful return to sovereignty once called, “Brexit.”

While the name has not changed; the definition certainly has.

American Democratic Hypocrisy? – New Muslim Nations; Just Say, “NO!”

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 

With the “Arab Spring” in full bloom the mandatory pro-democracy cries from American politicians and pundits cheer this as an American democratic success story in a Muslim world. Democracy? Hopefully. American democracy? Not a chance.

 

When it comes to American foreign-policy there is, apparently, only one type of democracy encouraged, or allowed, in the world. American Democracy.  As with most things American, the times have changed, and American brand democracy is not welcome.

The multitude of examples of American imperialism and aggression in the supposed name of Democracy will always be fresh in the minds of the new fledgling Muslim governments. America has never, in recent memory, supported the people of mid-east nations, unless there was an ulterior motive such as in Iraq. Instead the US has propped up most Arab dictators... Read More

“Kiss Of Death” for Aung San Suu Kyi and Her Myanmar Democracy

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 

 

    -The curse of globalization smells the blood of capitalism.

 

On Dec 2, 2011 U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton brought a face of American democracy to Myanmar. In reality Mrs. Clinton was offering the ” kiss of death” for Aung San Suu Kyi’s attempts at  democracy; Globalization. Democracy as branded by current American interests is simply and purely, capitalism, now, being presented to an impoverished Myanmar as globalization, privatization, and corporatization. This flawed, tragic ideology will surely bring to Myanmar the same inherent negative consequences shown in the current American “democratic” condition at home.

 

It’s been 50 years since America had a presence in Burma, which became Myanmar in 1989.Despite Mrs. Clinton’s visit, and her trumpeting of... Read More

Another Death Nail for Democracy Kills 1700 Endangered Wolves:

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

With a stroke of the presidential pen 1700 wolves were sentenced to die.  Never mind that these same wolves have been brought back from regional extinction due to forty years of dedicated work by conservationists.  For the sake of just two congressional votes, President Obama was willing to allow the slaughter of a species. The manner in which, for the first time, this nefarious legislation was slide through should send a dire warning to all who value the remnants of our constitution.

 

The wolf has for centuries been unfairly demonized by the ranchers and cattlemen of the midwest including Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming.  Due to legislation in the 1800’s and 1900’s bounties were introduced that literally wiped the North American wolves from the mid-western landscape.   By the 1920s, not a wolf howl was heard south of the Canadian border in these parts of...
