Could Britain LOSE Brexit? Legal expert says Supreme Court case could rule AGAINST Gov

THE Government could lose its legal bid to be allowed to trigger Brexit talks with Brussels without MPs' backing by a thumping 11 to nil, a legal expert predicted today.

...

Michael Zander QC, Professor Emeritus of Law at the London School of Economics, told legal magazine Counsel: "I would be surprised if the Attorney General and his team of supporting QCs and other lawyers have given ministers reason to hope that there was any great hope of the (High Court's) unanimous and very strong decision being reversed.

"In my view, the Government could be looking at losing 11-0."

So the demands of 17 million UK citizens can be overruled by 11 "important" people?

The Hidden Communist History of the Neo-Conservatives (“Neo Cons”)

Neo-conservatism fully began to rear its ugly head in the 1990’s when they thoroughly infiltrated the once patriotic and pro-America Republican party.

It is therefore incumbent upon each and every single patriotic American who cares about the future of their country (especially federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutor offices) to immediately begin to identify, isolate, marginalize, investigate, indict, arrest, prosecute, and incarcerate all Neo-Conservatives as an internal and national security threat to the welfare of the United States of America.

Foibles, Fables and Failures – The Financial Press and its Keepers

The Presidential elections made millions of American voters starkly aware of the mendacity of the mass media and the corruption of the Clinton political elite.

The world’s largest billionaire bankers had bankrolled Secretary Hillary Clinton, the ‘million-dollar-a-speech’ War Goddess. They had bet heavily against the populist-nationalist Donald Trump and they lost. Their pre-paid political manifestos, addressed to the readers of the NY Times, flopped and sputtered: Most readers and investors in domestic markets had placed their bets on ‘The Donald’. Their domestic celebrations pumped up the market after the election.

The unimaginable had happened: George Soros had bet and lost! The ‘deplorable’ electorate preferred the obnoxious nationalist to the obnoxious speculator. ‘Who’d a thunk it?’

Trump the Great — Paul Craig Roberts

If Trump can defeat the oligarchy and save America, he can go down in history as Trump the Great.

What we don’t know is why groups that allegedly are liberal-progressive-leftwing are such fervent supporters of Hillary.

To the extent any of the Trump protesters are sincere and not merely paid tools of oligarchs, such as George Soros, military and financial interests, and global capitalists, they should consider that false claims and unjustified criticism can cause Trump and his supporters to close their ears to all criticism and make it easier for neoconservatives to influence Trump by offering support.

Hammond’s First Post-Brexit Autumn Statement Points To Bleak Times Ahead

Philip Hammond’s first Autumn Statement as Tory chancellor, and the first since the Brexit referendum, is unlikely to mark a great departure from his predecessor George Osborne, as the cost of living rises and growth slows dramatically.

Promises under David Cameron’s government to “balance the books” by 2020 are apparently out the window, with borrowing set to balloon over the next 12 months.

Rally in support to Russian military operation in Syria held outside embassy in London

The rally participants, who unfolded a huge banner in the colors of Russian flag, say that the British public should know that the Russian military do not pose any threat to anyone. "It upsets me to think that Russians don’t know that many English agreed with the Russian actions in fight against terrorist threat in Syria. So, my main aim was to show the Russian audience that many of us carry out the support of Russian actions," the participant Alan Bailey said. Also, Russia’s Ambassador to the UK Aleksander Yakovenko said speaking at the rally, "You know, there are accusations that we are bombing wrong targets. It is not true because several times I raised this question in the Foreign Office and I tell them that we need facts. If the right facts will be presented to us, we are to investigate. I would like to say that I still didn’t receive the answer to some requests. We hope that we will be successful in fighting against terrorism. It is very important that you are supporting us".

As might be anticipated, in the wake of Trump’s historic victory — a win that for all sorts of reasons has shaken the Beltway establishment and beyond to its core, and one that political junkies will be fixating on for years — there’s been much handwringing about how so many folks got the outcome so wrong.

Amnesty: UK 'utterly disingenuous' about human rights in Bahrain

British ministers have acted like overexcited cheerleaders for Bahrain’s woefully inadequate human rights reforms, Amnesty International has said, ahead of an expected visit next month by Theresa May on the sidelines of the annual Gulf Cooperation Council summit.

Ministers ought to be confronting the awkward reality that the institutions set up in Bahrain with UK support “are seriously flawed and widely seen as a PR exercises”, Amnesty said.

The bodies, the ombudsman of the ministry of interior and the special investigations unit within the public prosecution, were established in 2012 following a fierce crackdown by the Bahraini government on protests the previous year.

The then foreign secretary Philip Hammond said Bahrain had been making significant reform, telling the House of Commons it was “a country which is travelling in the right direction”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, the British government has been historically willing to "look the other way" on torture, when there's money to be made, right, House of Commons and House of Lords?!?

As reported at rt.com in September of 2015, regarding the British Arms Fair:

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel, Bahrain and the UAE will be among the countries participating in London's 2015 Defence Security and Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition next week. RT takes a look at this year’s potential biggest buyers, whose record has often stirred controversy. Customers at this year’s arms fair may not always see eye-to-eye on geopolitics, but one thing they do hold in common is a desire to keep their armories well stocked. Countries such as Bahrain and Israel need guns to put down the meddlesome elements within their borders, while nations like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates need arms to fight Houthi rebels in Yemen. Over the course of next week, military buyers from around the world will rub shoulders at the world’s biggest arms fair in London’s EXCEL exhibition center to shop around for the deadliest deals. This year’s DSEI will welcome some of the world’s most repressive regimes. Among the guests are Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, Israel and the United Arab Emirates, all of which have been condemned for human rights abuses and violating international law.

And if the British and American governments were happy with what your weapons makers sold to these regimes, let me acquaint you with precisely what Saudi Arabia has been doing with these weapons against the people of Yemen: I am sure you are going to be just as happy with the following images:

Images of children killed by Saudi bombings in Yemen

Oh, and of course, there's that Saudi Naval blockade of Yemen, causing the slow, painful deaths of Yemeni children: if you liked the preceding image, you're gonna LOVE this one:

Images of dead and starving Yemeni children, 2016

Oh, and here's an image relating to current "human rights" in Bahrain:

Torture the norm in Bahrain to elicit confessions

So, to the UK and US government: these arms sales to despotic countries which attack schools, hospitals, open air markets, and kill kids, and torture political prisoners has made both governments complicit in war crimes.

I used to be very proud to be an American; but these days, being a citizen of a country addicted to pre-emptive wars; which tortures prisoners of war to obtain false confessions; which abets and enables countries which maim, murder, and torture civilians...this is not who I am, and not what I signed up for, as a citizen of the United States of America.

I think many of our readers will resonate with this thought.

What I have reported, in terms of the British government's glossing over Bahrain's atrocious human rights records, and the US/UK sales of weapons to Saudi Arabia, is no "conspiracy theory"; it is hard evidence and fact, documented by the images and information I have chosen to share with our readers today.

And to my American brothers and sisters, and my English cousins, let me say this; we have to work together, in the most peaceful ways possible, to end this enabling of despots around the world by our respective governments.

We have to look to new people.

“We have to look to new people because many of the old people frankly don’t know what they’re doing, even though they may look awfully good writing in The New York Times or being watched on television.”

The Upcoming War On The Alternative Media By The Deep State Mainstream Media

This declaration of war was typified by Google and FaceBook

The Mainstream Media (“MSM”), fully owned and co-opted by the Deep State Plutocrat/ Oligarch Elite, are extremely unhappy that Donald Trump won the 2016 Election.

They did not bank on this, and were completely and totally confident that their trillions of dollars of money issued by the Federal Reserve and international central banks, control of the National Security State as represented by the Military Industrial Complex, and bought and paid for representatives in the United States Legislature (Congress and Senate), Executive Branch, and Judiciary would have ensured their victory.

So what turned this election around, to upset the proverbial apple cart and deliver the Presidency to Donald J. Trump?

It would be impossible to overstate the effect this is going to have on the nation’s economic future.
