Great Britain’s “Leave” vote: Biggest event in Europe since the fall of the Berlin Wall

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Every fancy person, every fashionable person, every powerful person was banging the drum for remaining subservient to the European Parliament, and threatening the end of the world if Brits voted to leave.

In the end, the UK said, thanks, but no thanks.

Now that the taboo's been broken, do you doubt that other countries will leave, too?

This wasn’t the UK disowning Europe, but rather a sclerotic system of laws, taxes, regulations and a foolish migration policy. The UK will be more powerful and important now — and richer. Others will be jealous — they already are.

Europe just might be saved yet...

Joining me to talk about the historic Brexit vote is author Douglas Murray of the Gatestone Institute.

THEN Forbes contributor Gordon Chang comes on to discuss territorial disputes in the South China Sea, as tensions rise between China and the Philippines.

FINALLY: Your messages to me -- and a prediction...

Finally, some sanity in a world gone crazy with elitists of all ideological stripes dragging us toward their one-world-government nirvana. This may be the turning point where the people have used their vote to reject the outrageous policies on immigration, taxation, and environmentalist anarchy that liberals and socialists in particular are so intent to employ to bring down our economies and create a new world order according to their Orwellian dream. The UK will have short-term pain for long-term gain and there are none better equipped than the Brits when it comes to making sacrifices for a better, freer future. Because the MSM have become lap-dogs of the elites who run our academia and global finance you will not hear much about the opportunities that will come from Brexit, not until they have figured out how to capitalize on them. Today I hold a much higher level of respect for the British than I did yesterday. They have shown us a way out of this political darkness.

I think if they go after Ezra again it will backfire, but it’s up to us supporters to make sufficient noise to make sure of that outcome. Everybody with me???

As every Canadian should be able to judge from Justin Trudeau’s actions and words to date, and most specifically on this issue, there is a definite issue of his lack of intelligence and capability on economic, fiscal and monetary policy. It was refreshing to see David Cameron’s respect for the British public and their right to democracy, despite his disappointment and disagreement with the outcome. It was a wonderful example of what Canadians also deserve, even moreso with our Constitution.

My greatest concern for Canadians and issue with Trudeau and democracy are his broken promises, first and foremost his deficit spending and promise to Canadians for a 10 billion deficit which tripled after election.

As such, is there any appetite to challenge this, despite not having recall legislation, for one to pursue in the Supreme Court for breach of promise?

I wish i could have seen Chocolate Jesus, oh sorry Barack Obamas face when he realized his going over there probably made more people vote for an exit, how dare they question his wisdom.

Glad the people voted for freedom and not for communism and tin pot elitist dictators. The elitist and globalists are probably furious that the people had a say.

Jay Kelly commented — " the British economy would slip badly. In that sense, it has come true without delay."

What about the 20 billion a year they pay to the EU in tax to support a 4th level of government which is now gone? There’s 20 billion staying at home that is like a lotto windfall.

I think you live in your Mom’s basement – or a methadone clinic.

By “end of the world” I think the REMAIN campaigners meant that the Pound would slump, stock markets would slump, and the overall outlook for the British economy would slip badly. In that sense, it has come true without delay.

The Brits will have to weather this one out. They will have to take pride in their identity. And, for the first time in a long time, they will have to consider going it alone without Scotland and any part of Ireland.

They have weathered storms before. They are a strong people.

Now, in Western Canada, we should look at a Wexit vote, except the Alberta Non-Democratic Party would be a problem as true regressives, not wanting peons like the people to have a say in our lives.

Maybe you could do a by monthly magazine if you get shut down? Or go underground as in WWII mailing out news letters for a fee of course. But lets hope the Emperor Butts doesn’t go that far

Hahaha! Re the letter about warning when Sophie is going to sing! I ripped my earbuds out and missed the subsequent commentary. I’d rather listen to nails on chalkboard.

I was going to comment last night that I hoped you were wrong on being pessimistic for brexit. Thank God for small miracles. You commented tonight that Britain has been born again. I would love for that to be true. France, England, Germany, Brussels were all once completely Catholic but are now controlled by the diabolical. I know why the crusades happened and I can see what’s happening now. Who will they turn to to save them this time?

Ezra, if you ever need some “regular guy” to put in a ROI, not associted with the Rebel, let me know. I know nothing about it, but would be happy to add my name to it.

Great news for Great Britain. FREXIT next? I was working the night shift & keeping my eye on the results as they came in. Fantastic news! The EU as a trading block has been a joke. Just look at non-EU Switzerland. Some are saying that Obama’s speech tipped the vote to the “leave” side. Trudeau is nothing but a UN puppet. Nobody cares what he has to say on this issue (except maybe princess Sophie.)

China has been claiming all within it’s sight. Under Obama, America has been a nonentity. China is grabbing all it can before Obama leaves office. The Chinese military is not the powerhouse it appears to be. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGs_dcXt-3k

We had an interference once.Charles de Gaulle who came to Canada and in a speech upset all of Canada when he said Viva France Vive le Québec libre.

It’ll be tough for a while,but I think they are better off…to whom do you think the European Parliament owes THEIR loyalty?
