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.

Not Jewish Enough To Be An American.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

                                        

To be purely an American first and foremost is a threat to Israel. As Jewish/Israeli influence continues to grow in the halls of Congress and the White House, the false, excoriating allegations made against US Secretary of Defense nominee, Chuck Hagel, show the true, uncompromising,   demands of the Israeli lobby on Congress in America. Their words this week, and those of the Israel lobby, reveal the depth and reality of Israel’s American political intentions; to further dominate and control American foreign and domestic policy via the of the power of AIPAC on all American politicians. Quantitatively, Israel is well on its way.

 

Two quotes by Chuck Hagel have been splashed across almost every mainstream media news service in... Read More

CLINTON VS. OBAMA: A Continued Crisis in Leadership.(Part Two)

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 

In recent days Obama has appointed his first Supreme Court Justice in Sonjia Sotomayor.  Clinton’s first Supreme Court appointment was smooth sailing in sending Ruth Bader Ginsburg to join the Brethren virtually uncontested.  His second choice, however, was George Mitchell. Here, again, the parallels continue.

 

A career liberal Democrat and former Senate majority leader Mitchell was considered untouchable by both sides of the aisle. His long-standing reputation as a consensus builder throughout Congress and his very liberal voting record made him a liberal favorite.  His detractors, even in the Republican ranks, were few. Despite Mitchell’s clear liberal leanings on virtually all issues, and a voting record to prove it, he was considered likely to pass confirmation easily.

 

Suddenly, prior to the confirmation... Read More

BILL CLINTON VS. OBAMA : A Continued Crisis in Leadership.(Part One)

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 

Recent commentary on the first hundred plus days of the Obama administration have almost exclusively drawn comparison to those of FDR.  A closer and, it would seem, more accurate comparison would be that of Bill Clinton.

 

In 1992, “Change We Can Believe In”, was replaced with, “Putting People First”.  And, just like Obama, Clinton was elected for a number of political reasons that all equaled a campaign platform that promised sound social, economic and political change for the average American. As with Clinton it did not take long for  Obama to show his true colors.

 

“It’s the economy stupid”, was the mantra that kept Clinton focused on the path to the prize.  But in 1992 it was more than obvious to even the casual observer.  With an economy that was in the first throws of Reaganomics... Read More

Occupy Wall Street- DC/ Freedom Plaza

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Approaching the Freedom Plaza Occupy from the north the differences between this protest and their counterparts at McPherson park are obvious. This Occupation does not resemble the typical Occupy camps previously evicted across America. Rather than and embryonic composite of tents, tarps, string, rope, and protest signs this camp appears to be far closer to a military operation.

All Occupy camps are different, but this camp at Freedom Plaza, called Occupy Washington DC (not :Occupy DC) stands out. Freedom Plaza has no grass or trees anywhere and sits exclusively on semi-polished granite with symbols of American democracy throughout. It has a lovely view of the Capitol building looking down the slight grade of Pennsylvania Avenue to the south. On top of this granite sits about 65 tents all in neat rows or congregations around the epicenter of the camp. Many new Occupiers and... Read More

Waking Up with Occupy- 5A.M.

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

Suddenly, at 5 AM the cacophony of cell phone alarms went off creating a very annoying din. Grumbling could be heard in the corners of the warehouse floor at second Avenue and 32nd St. in Brooklyn New York from the over 275 guest protesters scattered across the floor. Just to be sure the message was clear and very loud voice gave the called action. “It’s 5 AM” he boomed. “It’s time to get up. It’s time to occupy.”

Well, occupiers are notoriously not accustomed to early-morning protest, preferring, to at all costs start no earlier than midmorning. But today they were after different game. It was time, just one year later, Kerry emphasize the origin original message of occupy. Today’s occupation, Wall Street. Sands, the financial district open so damn early, over 275 ashes protesters slowly arose from their cocoons.

OCCUPY DC: 5:35 AM. Cops Attack McPherson Park!

By: Brett Redmayne-Titley

 

Forty cops on horseback and another forty on motor cycles roared into McPherson Park this morning at 5:35 AM Saturday Feb.4, 2012.

The cops, in an apparent effort to make their authoritarian assault on the park a media event, had contacted main stream media prior to the raid as the first sign of trouble was the arrival of camera crews. Suddenly the police on horseback and the motorcycle cops materialized on all four sides of the camp. They immediately took control of the statue of General James McPherson, the namesake of the park, by using metal barriers. In recent days, as a reaction to the National Park Service notice to stop the Occupiers from camping, the campers had Occupied the statue using a very large tent blue tarp, emblazoned with Occupy slogans, to cover the general.

Police in riot gear have at this point surrounded the statue and removed the... Read More
