Nigel Farage, The Real Man of Europe: Brutal honesty that the idiots of Brussels needed to hear

God Bless Nigel Farage. Well done Sir!

Overmanwarrior's Wisdom

I know a lot of people in America don’t pay much attention to politics outside of North America.  Heck, there are a lot of people who don’t even go that far—so they have no idea really what is going on with this whole Brexit issue.  Let me introduce you dear reader to a real man from England who walked into the lion’s den in Brussels over 17 years ago to fight the EU from the outset.  After the British people voted to leave the European Union Nigel Farage spoke to that disastrous body of government here:

Once the speech had concluded he spoke to CNN and compared the situation in England to that within the United States.  Listen and learn.

Now pass this along to a friend and teach them something about the world and what’s coming to us all.  Find your place in history and hang on tight.

Rule Britannia

I am so very proud of my home country for voting to leave the European Union. When living in Britain I never did like the creeping regulations and lack of representation from the EU.

Britain 1

In theory a united Europe could be a very good thing and a force to be reckoned with. But alas, the countries are too different. But this is not why the EU is failing. The primary reason is not even financial, it is about representation. The US is a fine model, with representation of the people at local, state and federal levels. The EU was doomed to failure from its inception because it failed to realize that free people require representation. The EU is run entirely by un-elected bureaucrats and so the people of all the nations involved are not represented at all, but rather dictated to by clerks behind desks in Brussels.

It is a “brave and brilliant vote” as Donald Trump said and “self determination is the sacred right of all free people’s, and the people of the UK have exercised that right for all the world to see.”

Britain

This is a very important event in world history. Maybe even as shocking and historic as Henry VIII’s break with Catholicism and America’s declaration of Independence.

British Lion

June 23rd 2016 will go down in history as a defining date in the evolution of free societies. I am very proud of my fellow Englishmen for throwing off the shackles of Brussels and of the false song of globalism.

US UK

The markets will lose value in the near term, but they will stabilize. The US will vote for Trump in November, and together, the UK and US will guide the global conversation from entitlements to trade. A new dawn for liberty has arrived. What a happy happy time it is to be alive. We are finally starting to see light at the end of the tunnel.

 

Rule, Britannia!
Lyrics

Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.

When Britain first, at heaven’s command,
Arose from out the azure main,
This was the charter of the land,
And Guardian Angels sang this strain:

(Chorus)

The nations not so blest as thee
Must, in their turn, to tyrants fall,
While thou shalt flourish great and free:
The dread and envy of them all.

(Chorus)

Still more majestic shalt thou rise,
More dreadful from each foreign stroke,
As the loud blast that tears the skies
Serves but to root thy native oak.

(Chorus)

Thee haughty tyrants ne’er shall tame;
All their attempts to bend thee down
Will but arouse thy generous flame,
But work their woe and thy renown.

(Chorus)

To thee belongs the rural reign;
Thy cities shall with commerce shine;
All thine shall be the subject main,
And every shore it circles, thine.

(Chorus)

The Muses, still with freedom found,
Shall to thy happy coasts repair.
Blest isle! with matchless beauty crowned,
And manly hearts to guard the fair.

(Chorus)
Rule, Britannia! Britannia, rule the waves!
Britons never, never, never shall be slaves.

Bernie Sanders Nazi thugs

Glenn Beck likes to refer to Trump supporters as ‘brown shirts’ a term coined by Adolf Hitlers militant political wing. It’s surprising that a man as well informed as Beck has chosen to label passionate Trump supporters as Nazis, while ignoring the real ‘brown shirt’ thugs.

On the republican side you have the establishment working overtime to smear Trump in any way shape and form possible. In the media you have the majority of news outlets running every kind of anti-trump article imaginable. But the worst, the absolute worst form of intimidation we are experiencing comes from the militant Bernie Sanders supporters.

I saw the images of the protest, near riot unfolding in Chicago. I saw the footage of a man trying to jump the stage in Dayton. And when I was walking toward the latest Ohio Trump rally in West Chester, I felt a knot in the pit of my stomach as I thought of these protests. My fear was realized when a group of loud potty-mouthed teenagers were protesting outside the Town Hall rally. The police had cordoned them off and were protecting both their right to free speech, and to protecting both them and the pro Trump people. None of the Trump supporters minded much, until of course the Sanders supporters started shouting “F**K TRUMP, F**K TRUMP.” There were children present in the patient crowd of thousands trying to get in. The disgusting disregard for decency left many a little on edge.

Trump is not Hitler

When I walked into the Town Hall stage and sat down I saw many security officers. There were regular security guards, local police, the local sheriffs department and of course the secret service. They were all very calm, very pleasant people. But once Mr Trump arrived they went directly into business mode and I could tell some of them were nervous, as was I.

For good reason. A few short minutes into his speech two Bernie Sanders supporters tried to rush the stage. They were pushed back by the secret service personnel and escorted off the premises.

Mr Trump was calm and shrugged it off. He was pleasant about the whole thing, but it had many of us nervous.

After he had left I walked outside. The supporters were very happy with his speech. He is a lot more down to earth in person and seemed genuinely sincere. Contrast this with the thugs outside who were still shouting “F**K TRUMP, F**K TRUMP” while they heckled a pro Trump young black man and his family as they walked past. The news crews were too busy typing up their stories about the rally itself inside to pay attention to the ‘brown shirt’ style of intimidation tactics being used outside by Bernie’s thugs.

I can honestly say, now that I have seen him in person, that Donald Trump is the real deal. He is sincere in his rhetoric about restoring sovereignty to this nation and he is not the racist reincarnation of Adolf Hitler that the media are trying to paint him to be. He is not stirring up violence. That is the Sanders supporters and their left-wing fascist tactics.

What I saw inside the Town Hall rally was a very successful man, who is very opinionated and has changed his mind a lot over the years, but who really cares about his country. He engaged very pleasantly with the crowd, even taking the time to listen to shouted questions from some people. He gave honest and humble answers and even gave a few people a hug when they asked for one. He shook hands, he listened, he tried to take everything in. The protesters outside and the two disrupters inside were too obsessed with trying to silence our freedom of speech, than to listen to what the man had to say. And that is Nazi style fascism, not Trump’s well intended speeches.

Make America Great Again

It’s actually pretty simple ‘Make America Great Again’ and with a candidate like Donald Trump, you actually believe it will happen.

I have long held Libertarian ideals, yet in my private life I am very conservative. As a teenager I liked a lot of what liberals had to say, but that was during the Bush Administration, and I never really cared that much for Bush, though I did like some of his speeches. You’d have to be heartless not to get behind him after 9/11, but aside from that, I didn’t care for his expansionist government policies and reckless spending. The handling of the Iraq war still haunts us today.

The only time I really liked Barack Obama was when I first heard about him in 2006. I liked some of his speeches, and he spoke like the constitutional professor that he was. After that I never much liked him as it slowly became evident that he was a big government activist and did not have much love for the United States. He has been a terrible president. His only real achievement is becoming the first black president. That is an inspiration for black people and minorities for generations to come. It’s a shame that it ends there.

During 2012 I backed then presidential candidate Ron Paul. I loved the way that he spoke, and I believed what he said to be true. He is a genuine guy and was a fantastic congressman. I did not vote for Mitt Romney because I found him to be disingenuous and did not believe anything that he said. After his tax remarks recently about Donald Trump, it proves what a loser he is. Where was that tenacity during the 2012 presidential debates? He was and is a true establishment guy, and not good for this country.

trump_wall_ben_garrison

Fast forward to 2016. Rand Paul is an excellent senator. I loved his 13 hour filibuster in 2013 and I love how passionate he is about protecting America and the constitution, but he is not as effectual as his Dad at conveying his message. Ted Cruz delivered his filibuster a few months later and I found it to be copied. In fact, much of what Ted Cruz says seems to be copied. It feels to me like he’s saying exactly everything you want to hear without the sense of being genuine about it. The fact that Glenn Beck is backing him also concerns me. For the longest time I loved Glenn, and I’ve gone back and forth on liking him for a long time. But he always ends up rooting for the establishment candidates. Just like he did the Bush’s, just like he did Romney. The fact that Ted’s wife works for Goldman Sachs is another red flag. Goldman Sachs was the biggest campaign contributor to both presidential candidates in 2012. They run the show.

trump_van-helsing_ben_garrison

And now there’s Donald Trump. I didn’t know much about Trump until recently. I knew that he was friends with Robert Kiyosaki, and that sat well with me as Robert is a great guy and inspiration in the entrepreneurial world. Since Donald announced his plan to run for the White House, I began researching him, and as a gift for Christmas, my in-laws gave me a copy of his book ‘the art of the deal’. I read it a few days later before New Years, and quickly went out and bought his latest book ‘Crippled America’. I began to have more insight into the man, and then went and watched the first three seasons of ‘the apprentice’ with my wife. I was very impressed with the deals he has made over the years, and the way he runs his businesses. I started researching his politics, and saw that he has been registered as both a democrat and republican over the years. One thing that stood out to me is that over the last couple of decades he has always sided against the establishment. Something else that stood out to me is that he has indeed donated to both sides of the isle, but that it is mostly just to stand in good favor with candidates so he can keep business operations going.

tumblr_o1gzsjE5dg1slqt1mo1_1280

After watching the highlights of some of the debates, I find myself liking Donald more and more. I don’t believe he’ll part the seas, I don’t believe he’ll be a perfect president. He isn’t a true conservative, and he doesn’t hold all my values and beliefs. But what I do believe is that he’ll get the job done. He says he will strengthen border security and strengthen the military, he says he will bring jobs back to America. I believe that he will do this. The reason being that he is the only candidate talking about Mexico and China being a threat to our economy. He is the only one talking about tariffs, taxes and trade. All of the remaining candidates are bought and paid for in one way or another, but not Trump. He’s in this for himself. He’s in this for his businesses, and he’s in this for his kids. This is his finale to a very colorful and successful life. He is the only proven and successful businessman on stage, and he is the only one who has proven he can work with both sides of the isle to get things done and get things moving. With nearly 20 Trillion Dollars of debt, this country cannot afford to get tangled up right now. The constitution is vital to this country and I do not believe Donald will shred it. The government is too big, and it does have too much power over us, but anarchy will not help us, and if the economy is not righted very soon, the country will dissolve into that. At that point it would not matter who was president. For that reason alone I believe Trump is the only solution for the presidency right now. He is not perfect, he is not a true conservative, he will not right every wrong in our country, but he will break loose the economy, and the strength that gives us will aid us in repairing the country in years to come. Trump is the short term solution to our biggest problem, and in becoming president he will aid us in fixing our long term problems.

I am officially endorsing Donald Trump for the presidency. Good luck, and God speed.

Latte Sipping Prostitutes!

Rich Hoffman got a lot of flak for his original comment about the ‘Latte Sipping Prostitutes’. All over the news people thought he had finally gone too far, and was sure to apologize for his outrageous comments. They were wrong. He meant what he said, and he has stuck to it.

Many people took what he said out of context, and many of the local media outlets attempted a character assassination.

Since then Rich has doubled down on his philosophy, and continues to write on his blog. His comment about the “crazy PTA moms and their minions of latte drinking despots with diamond rings the size of car tires and asses to match” is much better explained in the humorous second chapter of ‘The Curse of Fort Seven Mile‘ which is now available on Amazon.com

Here is the introduction:

Evil is amok through the police departments, school houses and every political crevice of Fort Seven Mile.  Labor unions, secret societies and drug cartels are revealing their deep plans constructed by a global menace; “The System” to unleash complete control over the human race.  An era of chaos seems poised to unleash hopelessness into every home throughout the world, except for the emergence of a curse that refuses to submit. 

From the shadows comes a solitary savior who seems unstoppable and is threatening to shine light everywhere that darkness rules.  In the wake of the masked avenger known as Cliffhanger the town of Fort Seven Mile is uniting around the heroic obscurity.  However the greatest mystery of all is the origin of this gallant madman who defies all odds at every turn. A race is on by the forces who wish to maintain control of mankind’s minds, and a lone reporter who is uncovering a carefully concealed secret which has been suppressed since the emergence of ancient civilization.  The Curse of Fort Seven Mile is loose and the world will never be the same again. – Rich Hoffman, Author

Pursuing the truth is messy

When I started this blog three years ago, I had in mind showing the truth for what it was. I thought it would be fairly clean cut and somewhat straight forward. It is not. There is a lot of misinformation in the world today, many different factions, much mis-education. It’s hard to know who to trust.

On Tuesday I will have been a citizen of the USA for three years. Shortly after becoming a citizen, this blog, which had only been around for a week at that time, began to become political, as I then felt I was able to express my opinions freely.

The 2012 presidential race was in full swing and primaries were beginning to be held. I favored Ron Paul, as many of you will remember. I did not like many of the Republican candidates, and still don’t. But understanding specifically why isn’t exactly black and white.

Back in 2012 I was getting a lot of my information from a website called www.whatreallyhappened.com which seemed to be very informative and on the ball. Now, in hindsight, I realize that half of it is just wild eyed conspiracy theories. Now some of it is actually quite good. There are some legitimate concerns that the site expresses. I believe the owner of the site genuinely cares about his country and about freedom. But there is a phrase that now sticks out to me like a sore thumb whenever I do any research now.

“Check your premise.”

If a website, news organization or person is acting out of the premise that the USA is bad, then everything they say is going to be bias, and nothing good can come out of it. There’s another reason why the phrase “pessimism is a self fulfilling prophesy” is so true.

How can everything the USA ever does be bad? What does that mean for the person criticizing it? Are not many of those critisizing it Americans themselves? Does that mean they are bad also?

What really struck me last year was Dinesh D’souza’s ‘America Imagine a World Without Her’ documentary. He debunked many of the myths even I was partially sucked into.

I think the worst idea I’ve been sucked into is the anti Israeli propaganda. Now I’m sure there’s been some bad things that Israel has done, and continues to do. But for goodness sake; that’s war. That’s what happens when your neighbors all hate you, when other nations seek to wipe you from the face of the planet. I now think its very naive to criticize America, to criticize Israel, without also criticizing their enemies. What is so good about the terrorists? What do they stand for? Peace? Justice? Equality?

I think its very easy to give the benefit of the doubt to a mysterious other nation or group. While it is very easy to be critical of those close to home. When you’re up close and personal, you can point out every defect. When you try to judge from afar, things get warped.

Lets take my foreign policy ideas from a couple years ago. I thought the US should pull back many of its troops from over seas. But what my friend kept telling me at the time, and what I have now seen with my own eyes, is that “nature abhors a vacuum.” Those were his words, and by golly he was right. Just look at Russia! The US and NATO get all wobbly under the lack of leadership from Obama and the like, and KGB Putin pounces! He even annexes the Crimea! He gobbles it all up and merges it into his own country. And what does the media say? Nothing! They down play it. Amazing!

I have learned a lot over the last year. I may have been busy. I may have worked a lot. But I have learned a lot also. I said from the beginning that if I was wrong on anything, I would admit it. I may have been off key on these few issues, but I’m confident I hit close to home on everything else.

remembering

The pursuit of truth is a messy endeavor. It’s hard ever to be certain. Lately I find myself listening to the Blaze radio network, and I think Glenn Beck is right on most things. Family, Faith and Freedom. I believe in the preservation of the Constitution. I believe in the American way. I know that this country isn’t perfect, but I know also that it really is the best out there.

I’m sure there will be trying times ahead. There will be rocky days, and much to endure.  Keeping a needle pointed toward the truth is important. And values will triumph through.

Life is what you make it. It isn’t perfect. You will make mistakes. Mistakes help guide us, if we choose to learn from them. I have a little journal that I now keep, there is a space for each day. Each day has a new quote. Today’s quote is “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” This blog isn’t perfect. It never has been, it never will be. There will always be holes in it. It’s up to you to do your own research. I’m just trying to do what I can to help. I want to preserve the American dream, not just for myself and for my family, but for generations to come.

I didn’t realize just how bad things were when I first moved here. But then, aren’t things always bad? My grandparents grew up during World War II, with bombs falling over head. Many of you who read this grew up during the cold war. So is it really that much different? Maybe. Maybe there are now more enemies within. But we have so many more tools to preserve freedom at our disposal now. These blogs are one of them.

As Ron Paul once said “an idea whose time has come, cannot be stopped by any army or any government.” The ideas of freedom continue in this great experiment we call America. Yesterday’s quote from my little journal is ‘by doing a little bit each day, you can get a lot accomplished.” What are you doing each day to maintain yourself? What are you doing to maintain freedom?

Pursuing the truth is messy, but the truth will set you free.

How socialism led to the French massacre

There is so much wrong with socialism that it would be impossible to explain all the details as to how it led to the French massacre in one article. There are three brief points however, that I do want to make with this article.

Gun Control

I’ve written about Gun Control before, and how it only disarms the victims. Those countries without gun control have the lowest crime rates, while those with the tightest gun control only ever see a rise in violent crime. Not only could the workers at Charlie Hebdo not carry weapons, knowing full well that their lives were threatened by Islamic extremists, but even the poor police officer who tried to help was powerless because he too did not have a weapon. Had he been issued a pistol, he could have returned fire on these terrorists, instead of laying there, pleading for his life, before being mercilessly executed.

Immigration without assimilation

The idea that all are welcome, and do not need to show anything for it. When I emigrated to the US, I took the steps to becoming a citizen. After swearing my oath of allegiance, I did everything I could to guard that oath, to protect and defend the US  Constitution. I did everything I could, and still do, to blend in and to participate in American society. I try to make American values my own. I try to live up to the founding fathers vision. Do you think the Islamic terrorists, who themselves were French citizens, tried to live up to French values? Did they try to fit in? Did they try to participate in French society? Their actions show that they did none of this.

Political correctness

It’s no use calling them ‘crazed gunmen’. As if it’s the guns that are the problem. It’s no use calling it a ‘deadly attack’ when it is indeed a terrorist attack. It’s no use trying to protect or appease Muslims. No, not all Muslims are violent, but these men were radical Islamist extremists. They were terrorists. They should be labeled as such.

It is sickening to hear the mostly leftist media trying to cover for the Muslims. It is shocking to see that they are more concerned with back lash against Muslims, than upset with the brutal murder of innocent people. It is ludicrous to compare these atrocities to a lawsuit from the 1980’s.

There is a problem in Europe, and particularly in France with a Muslim population growing within their country. The problem is not the Muslims themselves, but the extreme faction within their religion, which has been allowed to percolate because politicians and left wing media alike do not want to call the pot black, and tell the truth.

If It hadn’t been for gun control, immigration without assimilation, and political correctness, these attacks would likely not have happened at all.

I hope that the French people can throw off the shackles of socialism, and pacify the radical Islamists in their country without turning to violence.

Lower taxes, increased gun rights, and better integration of immigrants would go a long way to solving their problems.

It is a sad week for France. My thoughts go out to all the families who lost loved ones by the acts of these barbarous Islamic terrorists.
