Kassam w/ Seb Gorka: Boris Can Use Emergency Powers to Enact A Hard Brexit

Raheem Kassam recently appeared on the America First show with Dr. Sebastian Gorka to discuss Brexit and the upcoming 2020 U.S. Presidential Elections:

In the clip, Kassam provides analysis of Boris Johnson’s government, specifically the prorogation of parliament and impending October 31st Brexit deadline.

He points out how those leading the crusade against proroguing parliament such as John Major have used the same tactic – suspending parliament – for “political reasons” in the past.

He also commends Johnson’s efforts on rooting out the “British equivalent of RINO’s,” those who “vote against the will of the people” by ejecting them from the Conservative Party and making them unable to stand for election. 

Kassam suggests a tactic that could be used to effect a Hard Brexit:

“In 2004, the Blair government introduced something called the “Civil Contingencies Act” that gives the government of the day a 30 day national emergency declaration that they could do to say we can’t go through parliament, we can’t introduce new legislation, we can’t introduce regulation because something is happening that has national security implications. If the left and the “remainers” are right and a hard Brexit does have those implications you can use their logic and the powers that they introduced against them”

Kassam wagers:

“We have to have a general election in the UK. The public must be able to have their say as to whether or not they want these parliamentarians who keep thwarting their will actually keep representing them.”

Kassam laments the loss of Rep. Eric Swalwell from the Democratic primary, a candidate with “no gravitas but high entertainment value”; his numerous failed attempts to make “pass the torch mainstream” and other overly-rehearsed payoff lines will be missed.

Raheem also explains as to why he thinks a Warren/Sanders ticket is likely:

“The Democratic establishment actually wants to lose this one so they can point to the socialist hardliners and go, “Look you tried and you failed. Let’s get back to our Hillary-style candidates.”

Pharaoh Justin Welby Is Bent on Buggering Up Brexit

“The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils,” intones the likeable Lorenzo in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice.

Surely the Bard of Avon isn’t describing Britain’s tonally challenged Archbishop of Canterbury?

Justin Welby doesn’t have a musical bone in his body. Organists at Liverpool Cathedral joked how poor Justin couldn’t tell the difference between a toccata and a ciabatta if the angel Gabriel revealed it to him.

This foible, in his otherwise flawless character, makes him the note-perfect candidate for “treasons, stratagems, and spoils,” i.e. for buggering up Brexit and screwing up democracy.

The Archbishop of Canterbury – a fawning Europhile and fervid Remainer – is now plotting feverishly to subvert Brexit and veto the democratic will of the people as expressed in the 2016 referendum.

CITIZEN’S ASSEMBLY

Like a wheeler-dealer in an African banana republic, our unelected Machiavelli in a mitre has crowned himself king of a citizens’ assembly, in which a hundred representatives from various sides will make recommendations on Brexit. He claims to have been “invited”—but we know how “jobs for the boys” is such a noble English tradition.

The assembly will balance gender, background, and political allegiance under its circus tent. Its members will be selected, God alone knows how, to reflect the outcome of the referendum and a range of views on what form Brexit should take.

Those involved will take part in discussions chaired by the Archbishop and hosted by Coventry Cathedral—where Welby was once Canon for Reconciliation.

So why did the nation spend £142.4m on a referendum if we were wanted the Archbishop to choreograph a freak show three years later? I mean, we could just let the Archbishop and his oligarchy run the country, no?

Welby has already nailed his purple knickers to the mast, making clear that a No Deal Brexit would be “not only a political and practical failure, but a moral one.” In 2018 he lauded the European Union as “the greatest dream realised for human beings since the fall of the Western Roman Empire.”

Like every other Remoaner, his Brexit Derangement Syndrome has resulted in orchestrated apocalyptic hysteria, warning us that a No Deal Brexit would unleash the four horsemen of the apocalypse, result in a shortage of Mars bars, Viagra, and even an asteroid shower obliterating Britain.

ABDICATION

The surrealistic irony in this political Helter Skelter set up by Welby is that it is based on the model of 100 diverse citizens discussing abortion in Ireland in 2016. Bizarrely, when the House of Lords was debating abortion in July, Welby was playing hookey from parliament and marking World Emoji Day by tweeting the Lord’s Prayer.

Even more perversely, as the Lords were imposing abortion on Northern Ireland, our archbishop was hosting a Christian-Muslim gabfest at Lambeth Palace on “prayer and public life in Christianity and Islam.”

Welby has the gall to abdicate his public duty in parliament by refusing to challenge abortion—arguably the greatest evil of our day—and then to sanctimoniously summon us to a citizens’ assembly on Brexit? Faugh!

In fact, not one of the 26 Church of England bishops was present, but 25 bishops were shameless enough to prostitute themselves politically and sign an open letter attempting to derail Brexit.

More wantonly, the Archbishop is now shamelessly violating the commandment that prohibits misusing God’s name: “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.”

This is the only one of the Ten Commandments whose violation God says he will not forgive (literally, “God will not cleanse”).

To take God’s name in vain is to use his name to rubber-stamp our own agenda. Welby dragoons Jesus into helping him in his plot to subvert Brexit:

“Jesus Christ is the source of reconciliation and healing for individuals and society,” he claims. Welby isn’t calling people to repentance and salvation in Christ; his call for reconciliation is a power play to get people to subvert Brexit.

Welby knows that his call for reconciliation is a hundred percent bogus because even Christians in his own anarchic church cannot find unity over the most basic issues of faith. Unity is the hallmark of totalitarian states and not of free societies and the chasm between Brexiteers and Leavers is unbridgeable since both worldviews are rooted in two mutually exclusive ideologies of nationalism versus globalism.

Welby is profaning the Lord’s name and his costly work of reconciliation, obtained on the cross of Calvary by the shedding of his blood for the forgiveness of sins. The Archbishop’s brazen misappropriation of Calvary for a political stunt is a scandalous betrayal of Christ’s atonement—never mind a betrayal of the democratic will of the demos, the people.

But Welby, as we have come to understand, is not the people. He is not even a stooge of the Establishment. Welby is the Establishment—an asymmetrically powerful group of Remoaners in government, Civil Service, media, academe, finance, and big business—who view Little Englanders, white working class Britons, and most Anglicans who voted to Leave, with undisguised contempt.

THE PHARAOH

In this sense, Welby can best be compared to the Pharaoh of the Exodus. Bloody minded, two-faced and Machiavellian, Pharaoh is hell-bent on buggering up the Hebrews’ Brexit from Egypt.

“The wonder of the Exodus narrative is that the role of Pharaoh continues to be re-performed in many times and many places,” writes Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann.

Moses makes every attempt to negotiate with Pharaoh. The tyrant of Egypt doesn’t want Israel to leave with a good deal. I mean, how dare they vote to leave in the first place? Moses has to deal with Pharaoh’s version of the Irish backstop: “I will let you go to sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness; only you must not go very far away (Exod 8:28).

Pharaoh cannot stomach a No Deal Exodus. Moses’s plea to “Let my people go” is like a tuba blast of discordant notes in Welby’s ears.

Pharaoh calls Moses and says, “Go, serve the Lord; your little ones also may go with you; only let your flocks and your herds remain behind.” Moses refuses to capitulate. “Our livestock also must go with us; not a hoof shall be left behind” (Exod 10:24-26).

Even after the Exodus begins, Pharaoh sends his heavy artillery to terminate Brexodus. At the time of writing, Welby has dispatched 25 of his fellow-bishops in a last-ditch attempt to stop Brexit. These are the commanders of the chariots wading into the waters of Red Sea in hot pursuit of the Israelites.

Like Welby, the bishops are the Establishment.

The Establishment is always the holder of Pharaonic power. Lord Acton’s aphorism, “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely” was a reference to bishops, not politicians.

If we are to have freedom, we must invariably subject the “truth claims” of the Establishment to the most rigorous hermeneutic of suspicion. Because, if there is one thing we can learn from post-modernism, it is that these “truth claims” are always about preserving power.

Historian Andrew Roberts, in Churchill: Walking with Destiny, repeatedly points out how the “flagship policy” of the “entire British Establishment” (including the Church of England) before the Second World was appeasement. “Churchill,” he writes, refused “to be cowed by the almost complete unanimity of the British Establishment in appeasing Hitler and the Nazis.”

The Establishment, in turn, hated Churchill and expressing their loathing with predictable cliché, caricaturing him “rather like a bull in a china shop.” This is what Welby, the bishops, and the Pharaonic Establishment are doing to Boris Johnson. After Brexit, the country should carefully consider booting them out of parliament—and, for its worth, getting rid of the bloated House of Lords.

Shakespeare has more to say about “the man that hath no music in himself.” In the case of such a man, says Lorenzo, “The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.” We would do well to heed his warning about a tone deaf Philistine and political scoundrel like Archbishop Justin Welby.

Soros-Funded Anti-Brexit Group Threatens the Queen

An anti-Brexit group has issued an extraordinary statement today, effectively threatening to behead Her Majesty The Queen for her work in ensuring the democratic will of the people who voted for Brexit in 2016 is delivered. 

Naomi Smith, the CEO of the pro-EU group ‘Best for Britain’ said after the Queen allowed for the proroguing of the anti-Brexit parliament: “It would make no sense for the queen to back this deeply undemocratic, unconstitutional and fundamentally political maneuver from the government.”

“If the queen is asked to help, she would do well to remember history doesn’t look too kindly on royals who aid and abet the suspension of democracy.”

Of course the Queen is not suspending democracy. She’s actually working well within the confines of the British constitution, as explained by A.V. Dicey in ‘The Law of the Constitution’ (1885).

The scholar wrote: “The House can in accordance with the constitution be deprived of power [when] there is fair reason to suppose that the opinion of the House is not the opinion of the electors.”

Best for Britain is funded by none other than billionaire George Soros, who is believed to have donated around £500,000 ($610,000) to the effort to kill off the Brexit referendum result from 2016.

Many of Soros’s business interests are reliant upon the crony capitalism and globalism the European Union represents.

Reuters reported in 2018:

News that billionaire financier George Soros is a backer of a campaign group seeking to keep Britain in the EU added fire to Britain’s Brexit debate on Thursday, with supporters of quitting the bloc accusing opponents of plotting a “coup”.

The Best of Britain campaign group confirmed it had received 400,000 pounds from Soros.

The statement by Best for Britain today hearkens back to King Charles I, who was deposed and beheaded after a protracted disagreement with parliament.

Defenders of the statement have taken to social media to claim the statement simply means the Queen will be perceived dimly by the public, a claim not borne out by public sentiment on the matter of Brexit.

Most Britons now want Brexit delivered, and quickly.

Facebook Slaps Kassam With 30 Day Ban Ahead Of Brexit Deadline

Raheem Kassam, former senior advisor to Nigel Farage and former editor-in-chief of both Breitbart London and Human Events, has been temporarily banned from Facebook as the Brexit deadline rapidly approaches, with no reason given.

Kassam, one of the original ‘Bad Boys of Brexit’, has helped disseminate pro Brexit messages with to his large fan following on social media over the past few years.

With big tech’s constant onslaught against conservatives, the idea Kassam was banned simply for being a conservative with a large following, as he receives ten million page views per month, is not far fetched.

However Facebook banned him for thirty days over what they claim to be a post that violates the community standards.

Facebook failed to provide a post which violates the community standards. Actually, they failed to provide any post at all.

https://twitter.com/raheemkassam/status/1166364599584788487?s=21

This is not the first time Facebook has censored Kassam – it’s the fourth time this year.

The first incident occurred at the end of February. Kassam was banned with no explanation whatsoever a few days prior to when he was set to take the main stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C..

After the ban went viral on Twitter, Donald Trump Jr. joined in in tweeting about it. Facebook then seemingly reversed the ban – again with no explanation, comment, or notification to Kassam.

The second temporary suspension came at the end of April, two days before Kassam was launching Human Events as the editor-in-chief. He was suspended for three days on his personal account and locked him out of both his fan page and the Human Events page.

Facebook did provide a reason for this ban: an 11 year old post that read, “men can’t be women”.

Once his account was functional again, an individual at Facebook emailed Kassam personally and explained he had engaged in “hate speech” and subsequently violated the terms of service.

https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1131661681728335878?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1131661681728335878&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fhumanevents.com%2F2019%2F05%2F24%2Fkassam-banned-from-facebook-on-uk-election-day%2F

The third ban lasted for seven days and occurred on election day in the UK for the European Union Parliament.

“I was trying to post an update about how people still had time left to vote, but apparently, that would have been too much democracy for Facebook. Or probably too much democracy on the side of which they know my followers would vote: Brexit.”

They banned him over the same 11 year old post.

And that brings us to today, with another ban ahead of the Brexit deadline.

The timing of the bans and lack of reasoning provided by Facebook raises questions over the validity of the supposed ‘violations’.

Raheem Kassam’s only violation of the Facebook community standards is being conservative.
