Indefatigable – “A Movement For Democracy” Farage Rises Again….

Following the refusal of the professional political class within the U.K. to honor the Brexit votes of the majority, British leader Nigel Farage came off the sidelines and said ‘enough’.

Farage and a group of independent British politicians have formed the Brexit party to take down the two-party structure and finally deliver the voice of the people.  Their Brexit party campaign has been criss-crossing the nation ahead of elections on May 23rd.  The response has been exceptional….  “A Movement for Democracy”.

Nigel Farage delivered remarks during a rally today [Prompted to 01:18:30, just hit play]

          Not only not accept the results of an election, but, as the conspiracy to overturn that election is about to be exposed completely, begin ramping up the most oppressive censorship program in the Nation’s history, on the most connected communications network ever created, a set of platforms that held the promise of making everybody’s voice heard, and not just the voice of the ruling class.

                By skirmishes I mean civil war. I was being cute while employing my favorite rhetorical devices: sarcastic understatement. Maybe not my best effort. Still, it’s just a random thought, offered up in an environment where the current democrat front runner gives quiet praise to masked domestic terrorists, while publicly ignoring the fact that they really do want to see civil war in the US.

      We’re working on it right now. The traditional republican and democrat parties have devolved into a corrupt, globalist-controlled Uniparty, consisting of firmly entrenched members of both traditional parties. The Uniparty is being fought tooth and nail by President Trump and his supporters.

      President Trump had to register as a republican in order to have a realistic opportunity to win, and as conservatives, the Republican Party has been our traditional home. This upcoming election is being positioned by the president as a referendum on his administration, and his leadership, vs the Uniparty.

      This election is perhaps every bit as critical as the 2016 election. The 2020 election will decide whether this movement has legs, or if the Uniparty can successfully withstand our attempt to destroy the neocommunist, America hating, democrat party, cleanse the Republican Party of Uniparty swamp vermin (as many as possible, anyway), and reelect our wonderful president.

      A third party now would only split the vote of those who hate the Uniparty, and would be a godsend for those who want the corrupt governments of Obama, Clinton, McConnell, Bush, Pelosi, Ryan, Boehner, Reid, et al. to “return to glory” – sarc/

      It should be pretty obvious (by now) who are the Uniparty traitors to the Republic. If not, check back here at The Treehouse regularly.

        I agree with you 100%. The problem is that the globalists will infiltrate any new political party. The only thing to stop them would be to write new laws that outlaw any and all forms of globalism and for providing assistance to any such group.

        We already have laws that could be enforced but there has be a very strong effort to thwart the ambitions of the progressives – communists who are actively working to take down both the US, Europe and Australasia in order to implement their communist tyranny.

          In 2018 President Trump still had to play nice with those he despises, but needs politically sometimes. Let’s hope the upcoming changing dynamics provides us opportunities to target and get rid of many swamp dwellers.

I think a third party would be a good thing but by the time we have it founded there will only be two parties as the DNC Party is dying slowly but surely daily. It is a party of communism and we don’t want communism. The so called republican party seemingly never has much energy, so easy to get things done with or without them. Good times are coming but will have to be fought for in any and every way we can.

      The war is between the permanent political classes, both in the UK and in the EU, and the people who nominally are represented by these classes. Note the UK has three establishment parties, Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrats who were in coalition with David Cameron and who proved themselves as adept at ignoring the expressed wishes of the ordinary citizen as their higher profile colleagues. They are often called LibLabCon party by the disillusioned. Nigel Farage is creating an antiparty, those stepping forward cover the whole spectrum of political and economic orientation united by their disgust at the hijacking of democracy.

      The problem is not limited to countries with first past the post political systems where two parties tend to evolve, but is possibly magnified in proportional representation countries as in Europe where the electorate may place those closer to their own views in parliament where they become mired in inaction unless they make political alliances beyond the supervision of the electorate.

      The problem is not the number of parties but the way politicians ascend to power without ever generating wealth by their own efforts beyond the political bubble. They do this by forging alliances, seeking and granting favours to other political aspirants. The best way of avoiding this entrenchment of power would be term limits, the closing of avenues to power to the civil service and a strict policing of nonpartisanship; also a reduction in size of government to thwart empire building.

      Western democracy is wearing thin the solutions put in place at the end of the Second World War, not just representative government but also supranational arrangements like the EU, UN, NATO, IMF. What happens in America is replayed elsewhere.

      Lastly may I quote Brendan O’Niell via Instapundit

      “It isn’t populists who have been beating, shooting and maiming protesters in France for the past six months, causing scores of them to lose eyes and limbs. It’s anti-populists who are doing that.
      It is the anti-populists’ hero, in fact – Emmanuel Macron – who is overseeing this extreme state violence and brutal clampdown on French liberty.
      It isn’t populists who are seeking to overthrow the largest democratic vote in UK history – the vote for Brexit – and in the process threatening to undermine the very idea of the right to vote. It is anti-populists who are doing that.
      It is anti-populists who, exactly as we have been celebrating the 100th anniversary of women and working-class men getting the vote, have tried to block the enactment of something that eight million women and millions of working-class men voted for: Brexit.
      It isn’t populists who are marching through the streets in their thousands waving placards mocking the stupidity of ordinary people and demanding that the state unilaterally override these people’s democratic wishes. It’s anti-populists.
      Throughout the West our university-credentialed-but-not-educated ruling class has been guilty of an entitled arrogance that is matched almost perfectly by its incompetence and ignorance.”

      Thats cause there IS no way to delete or edit a post, in wordpress.
      Just one of the delightful quirks we gladly endure, as the PRICE,we pay, for the PLEASURE of getting to hang out at the,CTH.

      First, we,would have to have a,TWO party system, in the U.S., before we could have a 3 party system.

      Actuall, England has the,same situation; a PHONY conservative party, that alleges to represent the conservative voter, but ALWAYS appears,weak, inneffective against labor, cause its ONE party.

      Just like in U.S. Its the same here, with the,Decepticon Republicons and the Distract-U-cons Democrat party.

      And the Deplorables is an attempt to wrest power away from the Decepticons, and make the Republican party a CONSERVATIVE party.

      The Uniparty, after Perot, made it difficult to start a viable National third party, especially for POTUS elections.

      And, after infiltrating and destroying Perots party, they infiltrated the already existing 3rd parties, so they could USE them as ‘splitters’.

      Libertarians, Greenies, etc. My bet is we will see the emergence of a “Centerist” party, that miraculously managed to get on the ballot, in all 50 states.

      The goal of the Uniparty in 2020, is NOT to have their ‘candidate’ win. It is to insure “Trump” loses, because EVERY other candidate will be Uniparty, so IT DOESN’T MATTER what letter they have, after their name. So long as the NAME isn’t TRUMP, they win.

        Re: WordPress editing. Actually it is possible to have editing in WP forums. WP works using “plugins” of which there are a vast number. In fact there are several WP plugins that implement editing. It takes a site administrator to install/configure comments for editing. I assume the administrator(s) know about the options. There may be good reasons for having it the way it is here, it sure would be interesting to know what those reasons are.

        As for the “party system” in the US, of course political parties are not mentioned in the Constitution. Nonetheless the construction of our electoral process evidently promotes emergence of the two-party tradition because the US has maintained that structure for a very long time.

        It’s illustrated by the effect of 3rd party candidates, mainly the tendency to damage the prospects of one of the major parties. Likely having to exceed the electoral college threshold means a third party candidate can’t succeed but only takes away from a major party candidate. That is to say a contest between 2 entities necessarily leaves one receiving a clean majority (of electoral votes) whereas 3 or more candidates would not.

        That intrinsically discourages formation of 3rd parties. As we observe 3rd parties are relegated to marginal influence, able to nibble at the edges but don’t rise to truly challenge the status quo. We certainly could stand to improve the quality of the Democrat/Republican party options we currently suffer with, but that’s another program altogether…

      In the UK we were told that we did not know what we were voting for and we were “uneducated”, “working class”, “racist” and other adjectives. We were supposedly too stupid to understand the question on the Referendum paper! The breathtaking arrogance of the political class in the UK is beyond belief.

      Well, they are being taught a lesson now, but we sorely need Nigel Farage in power. However he is not an MP, and his new Party, the Brexit Party does not as yet have any MPs (but they are lining up MEPs to take part in the European elections later in May). The powers that be will do all they can to prevent Farage and his Party succeed and it is feared that Theresa May will ram through a deal agreed with Jeremy Corbyn (Labour) which would mean that we leave the EU in name only, but in reality be a vassal state. If this happens soon then there would be no grounds for the UK to take part in the European elections and therefore no chance for the Brexit Party to gain any MEPs or any power. That is what Theresa May seems determined to do to ensure she is not humiliated in any European elections when the Brexit Party would surely win the elections and humiliate Theresa May’s Conservative Party.

      However, all the good that President Trump is doing will have tremendous effects globally, and I believe that ultimately he will be able to help us in the UK fighting for our sovereignty and democracy.

    Nigel Farage is a great and courageous man. He is up against the deep state/global political cabal that is determined that the UK does not leave the EU. Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement is a complete capitulation and will render us to be a vassal state of the EU, totally subjugated and not able to leave.

    May has appointed a largely Remainer team of Tory MPs in her Cabinet and Europhile civil servants totally focused on producing an agreement whereby the UK does not actually leave the EU. It is referred to by many as BRINO, Brexit in name only. May is hoping to ram through her deal (Withdrawal Agreement) in Parliament soon, a deal which has been further modified after talks with Corbyn, the Labour leader. Thus she is working with the opposition, Jeremy Corbyn, a Marxist to defeat those in her own Conservative Party who do not want her Withdrawal Agreement at any price.

    These backbenchers in her own Party are brave and in the minority, fighting to honour the Referendum result and thereby uphold democracy. However they seem unable or unwilling to actually unseat Theresa May. They could do so with another meeting of the 1922 Committee who could tell her to leave (as she no longer commands the confidence of her MPs or the people of the UK) or at least extract a date from her when she would step down. so far the 1922 Committee hasn’t taken those steps. This is why the general public in the UK is so furious with the politicians, whom they consider weak, unprincipled, and in the case of May, consider her to be a traitor to the country. (Manifest in the local election results which have just taken place).

    The situation is appalling, and the UK is on the brink of being sold out to the EU, in defiance of the public vote (the Referendum) which stated that the majority wanted to LEAVE the EU. The “establishment”/deep state seem to think they know better than the people and are determined to stop us.

The EU has morphed into a huge conglomerate beholden to no one and run by civil servants who don’t even pay taxes. It has been frightening to see the wheels fall of an experiment so quickly. I personally think that we are watching a Mission Impossible episode where May tears off her face mask and Merkel is underneath. She has uttered so many lies to the press that it takes my breath away. It takes a lot to anger the British and now I really hope they didn’t wait until too late to get rid of that woman.

    The elections scheduled for May 23rd might well end up being cancelled, for the U.K. The two main parties, Conservative and Labour, know that they will get crushed if the elections are held. They are both desperate to avoid that; so they will likely join together and cancel the elections.

    They are not even pretending to adhere to democratic principles any more.

  16. If PDJT wanted to, the day he leaves office HE could start a 3rd party – – calling it whatever he wants – Nationalist, Patriots, American or whatever. He could convert 80% (wild guess) of his supporters which would be akin to having a grass roots ground game already in place.

      No, by the time he leaves office, the Uniparty must be destroyed beyond repair. Assuming we don’t appoint him “Emperor for life”, he starts a broadcast and cable news network, that totally capitalises on 1/2 of the total available market, instead of fighting over 1/6 of 1/2, like ALL the networks are doing, now.

      Call it Deplorable TV, or Trump Network, whatever you want.

    The 23 May elections are for the EU parliament. Since Treason May and all the other numpties have been obstructing Leave and the results of the referendum, it looks like the UK may still be apart of the EU past May. Hence better to get Brexiteers sent to the EU to give them as much trouble as possible.

    First step in forming a new party for the general election and to oust May, a total disaster.

      This is true, it’s a sham.
      Farage is running candidates to become MEP’s when he supposed to be for leaving the EU. So now he’ll be back on the gravytrain in the EU parliament and also splitting the Brexit vote back home while destroying UKIP.
      Nice work Nigel. Just because you don’t like Tommy Robinson…etc.

    Two useful articles on the UK situation:
    https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/farage-alone-is-asking-the-right-questions/
    Farage alone is asking the right questions

    “….Farage alone of the politicians is asking the right question: what is politics for? Is it to enable the people to be heard or to keep an unaccountable establishment management in place over us, withering away our national democratic sovereignty? Is this managerial caste to rule us with its secretive shifts of policy and practice, or will we regain the right to speak truth to power through the ballot box? The Conservative Party has told us what it wants, and that is being rejected with fury by the people. So the Euro elections must at all costs be stopped by Mrs May’s Brino – sorry, ‘delivering Brexit’ – just in time, in a terrible customs union Faustian pact with an anti-Brexit and anti-Semitic Labour Party.”

    and
    https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/the-toppling-of-theresa-day-30/
    The toppling of Theresa: Day 30

    “…Even three years ago, few would have predicted that the ‘informal’ nature of the British Constitution could be so abused by a Prime Minister determined to stay in office at all costs, or that the political establishment would tolerate such a state of affairs.
    The Conservative Party has just suffered its worst defeat since the local council elections since 1995, losing 1,334 councillors – towards half of them.
    But does Mrs May resign? No. Do calls for her resignation lead the news headlines? No. ….

    It took the backbencher Sir Bernard Jenkin (whom I should have included in my list of principled Tories yesterday) to make the point:
    ‘When will my fellow MPs abandon the delusion that Leave voters can be sold a Remainers’ Brexit?’
    And at least the pundits are catching up with what we’ve been saying for more than a year on TCW: that voters have smelt the arrogance of Remain zealots and inflicted their punishment on the parties accordingly.
    But still too many still fail to get Kim May’s measure….
    It is her strategy to stay in power for ever and ever.

    We at TCW still count the days it will take for her Machiavellian Cabinet to understand the extent of her ambition, hubris and sheer ruthlessness.

    Today is Day 30 . . .

    Mr. Farage is that rare commodity in today’s world, a courageous man of integrity. His promise of destroying “business as usual” should draw patriots from across Britain to throw the bums out. Just as Donald Trump is doing here, Mr. Farage must be causing the anti nationalists’ blood to run cold.

    More on Theresa May’s betrayal of Brexit, the people of the UK, and the UK itself:

    DESPERATE Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn to finalise Brexit deal ‘STITCH UP’ next week
    EXCLUSIVE: A BREXIT deal based around Britain staying in a customs union with the EU is expected to be tied up this week.
    “…..A leaked communication from Tory treasurer Sir Mick Davis suggested wealthy Remainer donors are applying pressure on Mrs May.

    Sir Mick said to a leading Brexiteer former donor: “You will not be surprised that my Remain donors (who have supported the Party these past two years with far greater sums than Leave voters even though they have accepted that we will be leaving the EU)… believe the MPs who should be deselected come from the ERG.”

    This has been taken as evidence by Brexiteers that wealthy Remainers are responsible for a “Brexit in Name Only” policy from the government.

    Tory North West Leicestershire MP Andrew Bridgen said: “The revelations from Sir Mick Davis shows that wealthy figures from the Remain establishment are pulling her strings and dictating policy, which has left us with a Brexit in name only.
    “In doing so she is going against the vast majority of the Conservative membership and the country. She must be removed as PM before her betrayal is completed.”

    I don’t see it happening due to the structure of our system. There are already over 30 political parties in the U.S. the Libertarian and Green parties have had the best success outside of Dem or Repub. Neither threatens either party, usually just acts as a spoiler.

    However, it should be understood that each of our two main parties is actually a coaltion of mini parties. Trump was a third party candidate running on the Republican ticket, imo. The Tea Party movement was also an insurgency within the Repub Party. Both have changed the Repub party for the better in the process.

    I think the answer is to build on that inner strengthening by having candidates run on party ticket, but identifying as “Libertarian Republican”, “Conservative Republican”, “Constitution Republican”, etc so the party understands the strength of their coalition support. Maybe they wouldn’t be so disconnected from the people that way. Maybe their congressional party leaders (Speaker or minority) should come from the largest coalition group (or most powerful alliance of groups from within).

      FYI

      Nigel resigned as leader of UKIP after the Brexit referendum and again from the party l4th Dec 2018. Nigel read the political winds; UKIP had become a shadow of its former self without Nigel as leader.

      For EU elections,
      The UK is divided into 12 electoral regions made up of the nations and regions of the UK. Each region has between 3 and 10 MEPs and each MEP in a region represents each person living there.

      There are 73 UK MEPs. They are elected in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Other EU member states elect MEPs from their countries. Elections take place every 5 years and the next elections will be held in 2019.

      Nigel (a MEP) holds a position in the European Parliament.

      The Brexit Party has a simple plan, contest every one of the 73 seats in the european parliament elections being held 23rd May and take the fight onward. BP is tapping the extreme frustration of a no Brexit deal provided by the pathetic UK ruling elite, so far.

      Considering the short window of opportunity, between the intended Brexit date of 29th March and May 23rd this year, BP has taken the euro elections by storm

      See latest polling:

      I would suggest the end of this month will make interesting reading for May and Corbyn and the EU leadership. Britains people will not be denied, “Vive la Britain” 🇬🇧 as the French never say to us! 👋

      • Carl Benjamin (Sargon of Akkad) and Mark Meecham (count Dankula) are running for MEP under UKIP. There seems to be a little internal friction between UKIP and Farage. Personally, I am hoping Farage leaving UKIP doesn’t weaken the effort of those who are working just as hard to make Brexit a reality.

          The elite made it quite clear that there was no place for him in the negotiations with the EU, when in fact we know he would be the best!

          His party had no presence in the uk parliament, therefore he had little leverage to affect the leave process.

          He did say when he stepped away that he’d keep his eye out on the uk political class and come back if they reneged. And guess what, no surprise and Hey presto he’s back!

    The local elections last week were, in effect, a referendum on the main parties handling of Brexit. Of course that wasn’t the purpose, but voters seized the chance to let Parliament know the strength of feeling around England regarding the travesty of the Brexit negotiations.

    The result was a widely expected debacle for the Conservative party thanks to the appalling Treason Mayhem who never wanted to leave the EU from the get go and has done her best to frustrate it. Much of the reporting is focused on her terrible leadership that is the direct cause of the national anger.

    However, it is also true that the Labour party under Jeremy Corbyn also lost in a big way. Consider that as the largest opposition party it would, in normal times, be expected that come an election, local or national, it would be the party that picks up most of the seats. In fact it too suffered a net loss – only a few dozen seats – but a clear indication that Corbyn is just as much a failure in producing an attractive alternative manifesto. I would even rate his performance as worse than Treason Mayhem’s and that’s saying something.

    The voters delivered a ‘plague on both your houses’ result. Nigel Farage is the only vaccine to cure that plague. My wife and I have contributed to the Brexit Party fund. I may sue the Conservative party for damages 🙂
