    Looks like it's happening...


    Major British Broadcasters Project Great Britain Will Leave European Union

    June 24, 2016

    The three major British broadcasters – BBC, ITV and Sky News – projected early Friday that Great Britain will vote to leave the European Union.

    With 374 of the 382 counting areas declaring their vote totals, the “Leave” camp led by more than 1 million votes in a surprising turn of events. Each broadcaster predicted a four point victory for “Leave.”

    Britain’s Independence Party leader Nigel Farage said he believes that “Leave” campaign will win the vote. To cheers of his supports, Farage said “the dawn is breaking on an independent United Kingdom! If the projections are now right, this will be a victory for real people, for ordinary people, a victory for decent people!”

    "Let June 23 go down in our history as our independence day!"

    As results and projections started to pour in, the British pound plunged to a 31-year low. The figures delivered a deep shock to financial markets, overturning earlier anticipation of a narrow win for “remain.”

    The results paint a stark picture of a divided nation: Strong pro-EU votes in the economic and cultural powerhouse of London and semi-autonomous Scotland were countered by sweeping anti-Establishment sentiment for an exit across the rest of England, from southern seaside towns to rust-belt former industrial powerhouses in the north.

    "A lot of people's grievances are coming out and we have got to start listening to them," said deputy Labour Party leader John McDonnell.

    "Few 'remain' strongholds are doing better than expected," said John Curtice, a University of Strathclyde political scientist and BBC election analyst. "There are far more places where 'leave' are doing better than expected."

    "It may be possible that the experts are going to have egg on their face later on tonight," he said.

    A vote to leave the EU could destabilize the 28-nation bloc created from the ashes of World War II to keep the peace in Europe. A “remain” vote would nonetheless leave Britain divided and the EU scrambling to reform.

    The first results, from England's working-class northeast, were a smaller-than-expected "remain" win in Newcastle and a bigger-than-expected "leave" vote in nearby Sunderland. The "leave" side also outperformed expectations in other areas of England, though "remain" was ahead in early Scottish results.

    There was better news in London, where many areas had strong "remain" majorities.

    As polls closed Thursday, pollster Ipsos MORI said a survey conducted on Wednesday and Thursday suggested the "remain" side would win Britain's EU referendum by a margin of 54 percent to 46 percent.

    Earlier Thursday, the firm had released a poll that indicated a 52-48 victory for "remain." That phone poll of 1,592 people had a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points. But the firm's chief executive, Ben Page, said continued polling on Thursday suggested a bigger swing to "remain" that gave the 54-46 result.

    As polls closed, Farage set a downbeat tone for the supporters of a British exit — or Brexit — from the EU, telling Sky News television "it looks like 'remain' will edge it" in the referendum, sending the pound to a 2016 peak of $1.50.

    But he walked back those comments later, telling reporters at a "leave" party in central London that "maybe just under half, maybe just over half of the country" had voted to pull Britain out of the EU. And by early morning he was declaring the dawn of a new era.

    The high turnout had been expected to boost the "remain" vote, because "leave" supporters are thought to be more motivated. But high turnout in working-class areas that typically have lower tallies could also boost the "leave" vote.

    "I think it is going to be really close," said photographer Antony Crolla, 49, outside a London polling station.

    Polls had for months suggested a close battle, although the past few days have seen some indication of momentum swinging toward the "remain" side. But torrential rains, especially in the "remain" stronghold of London, raised fears of diminished turnout. London's Fire Brigade took 550 weather-related calls as the capital was hit by heavy precipitation, thunderstorms and lightning strikes. Some polling stations were forced to close because of flooding.

    Now that Britain is projected to leave the EU, Prime Minister David Cameron faces calls to step down after leading the “Remain” campaign. Almost half the lawmakers from his Conservative Party backed an EU exit, and the "leave" campaign was led by potential leadership rivals, including former London Mayor Boris Johnson.

    If "leave" wins, he may have no choice but to resign.

    "If the prime minister loses this I don't see how he can survive as prime minister," said Scottish National Party lawmaker Alex Salmond. "Talk about lame ducks. This would be a duck with no legs and no stability whatsoever."

    At a referendum night party at the London School of Economics, Kevin Featherstone, the head of the European Institute, said that whichever way things went, the vote should serve as a wakeup call to politicians across the continent.

    "One of the deeper headlines from tomorrow, of a narrow victory either way, is that wider Europe has got to learn the lesson about how to re-engage with ordinary publics," he said. "We can see across Europe countries which have been ... far bigger supporters of the European Union for a number of years starting to have serious doubts."



    Kind of hard to argue with this...

    That was pretty good. I'm curious as to how he did it.

    Brexit is going to shake up the world, and we have to be prepared for the aftermath



    In a surprising turn of events, Britain recently voted to leave the European Union, which has subsequently sent the world into chaos.
    The event, known as Brexit, will have considerable effects on not just the economy of the United Kingdom, but of the entire world. Fears that the stock market will soon crash, sending the global economy into a tailspin have become more and more common in the hours following the decision. As a result, many people are already reacting negatively, and tensions are incredibly high. It seems as though the world is on the verge of being thrown into a violent storm of destruction.


    If and when that day comes — when everything goes bad — you better be prepared if you expect to survive.
    “Doomsday preppers” as they are often — sometimes condescendingly — called are frequently viewed as paranoid conspiracy theorists with delusional tendencies. Their precautions are seen as silly and unnecessary, with many criticizing their decisions to prepare for supposedly unlikely events. Considering the direction the world is headed, though, it’s a much smarter, safer idea to err on the side of caution. As the old adage goes, it’s better to have something you don’t need than need something you don’t have.
    If you, like so many others, are nervous about the consequences of Brexit, you should stock up on supplies that could be necessary to help you survive. Multifunctional tools are incredibly popular among preppers, who attribute their compact size as a major factor in their usefulness. Instead of lugging around a box full of tools, one or two items provide every service you would need in a doomsday situation.
    If and when society inevitably collapses, only the strong will survive. We’re living in a time when technology has advanced so far that a major part of being “strong” is just being prepared. Having the proper equipment and resources is even more vital than stereotypical, physical strength.

    One thing I can say about Brexit is that all the right people are squealing. By "right" I mean lefty, globalist, pro-immigration shit bags, like Hillary, Obama, Soros and tons of others.

    A lot of my friends are secretly laughing their asses off about this whole thing. A lot of people I don't even know personally, only through online contact, FB, MUSHes, and the like, are loving it. The people shitting themselves are the Left. Americans on the Left are crying themselves to sleep at night, as their world is starting to dissolve into Reality.

    Putin: Brexit Proves UK Can Destroy The New World Order

    Posted on June 26, 2016 by Baxter Dmitry in News, World // 5 Comments








    Russia is hoping for a ‘new understanding’ with a post-Brexit Britain, according to Kremlin sources, with President Putin said to be ‘deeply encouraged’ by the British people voting to back themselves and reject the New World Order’s destructive goals.

    According to sources, Putin believes that Brexit is proof the globalist’s destructive agenda is deeply unpopular with real people, and when given a chance they will instinctively reject it out of hand.
    ‘We must mark today in our calendars as the day the British people stood up to their masters and told them a resounding no. No more.’
    Putin vowed to destroy the New World Order in 2016, and it appears people all over the world have started to wake up and take notice. The President is ‘deeply encouraged’ that his determination to destroy the invasive organisation’s plans is shared by people all over the world, and gaining momentum all the time.
    Brexit represents the biggest uprising by the British people against the rulers who run the United Kingdom since the Peasant’s Revolt in 1381, and the New World Order controlled puppets in Westminster are reeling. All of the elite – politicians, bankers, economists, celebrities – told the people to remain in the European superstate. But the people are waking up.


    The Rothschild NWO cabal will be pacing nervously in their mansions, wondering how to deal with this massive, unexpected blow to their globalist agenda. Their roadmap to arriving at a one world government has been complicated by this uprising by the people.
    Do not be surprised if the mainstream media attempt to convince you of something deeply disturbing in the near future. Never in history has the NWO had such a firm grip on mainstream media operations. There is already a push underway to declare the referendum non-legally binding, and plans to hold a second referendum to ensure a different result. London mayor Saddiq Khan is even suggesting the city could secede from the United Kingdom in order to stay in the European superstate.

    The New World Order controlled elites in London and Brussels did not expect this blow and they are scrambling to take back control.
    Triggered by a massive popular uprising, stoked by wholly rational fears, and fired up by hard facts, Great Britain has regained its place as a powerful, sovereign nation. The people chose to make Britain relevant again, to take control of their economy, and make themselves respected in the eyes of the world. They have taken the bull by the horns and backed themselves as British. They have voted for advance over stagnation. It is the answer for our times.

    I find it amazing that 30 years ago, we'd be wishing nuclear fire on Russia and today I'm wishing our leader was like theirs.

    It will be completely entertaining if Hillary gets indicted and/or Trump gets elected. Both will send leftists into insanity and I'll enjoy every moment of it.

    I _GENUINELY_ have enjoyed the Brexit reaction from the left. It's priceless.
