Success of the Brexit Do-over Petition is a 4chan Prank – MSM Exposed

Posted on June 26, 2016 by willyloman

by Scott Creighton

Earlier this morning I wrote about the “EU Referendum Rules triggering a 2nd EU Referendum” petition, what I called the Bexit Do-over Petition. I wrote that it was bogus because the vast majority of signatures were coming from places outside the UK and in fact proved my point by signing the damned thing myself.

I called out the corporatist media for not doing due diligence when reporting on this “mandate” and exposing it as an obvious fraud because it served their “Remain” interests.

Turns out, according to Heatstreet, the petition has been hijacked by 4chan trolls, playing a little prank on the establishment press. They’ve been online for the past 24 hours boasting about their little prank while CNN, Fox and MSNBC have been breathlessly reporting on how the Brits have spoken… again.

Eventually places like the Telegraph started waking up to the game when they found “39,000 signatures  from Vatican City – population 800” and “23,788 people from N Korea, one of the world’s least internet-connected countries, have also signed the petition.”

They’ve been using bots and various other tools to hijack the petition as a joke but apparently no one at the MSM gets it. They just keep on reporting that the British people want another bite at the apple.

It’s sad what gets reported to us as “news” these days. Even sadder what passes as “journalists”

As of the time of this post, no reputable news organization has posted anything about this.

Therefore, it is balderdash!

I had a thought back in the 1980's, if any thing happened to Nancy, Thatcher would make a PERFECT 2nd wife for Reagan. ;)

Dennis might have a say in that. I don't know if the

easy going Ronny could stand too much of Thatcher.

 

Well, the market is down less than it was on Friday.

It usually is spooked pretty easily and then calms

down and levels out. We'll see.

That doddering clown would love her. He'd call her "Mommy" - and she'd actually fit the name better than Nancy did.

Mommy was bad enough as a control freak, but I don't know if he

could live married to an overbearing harpie like Maggie. Meeting

once in a while is one thing. Being married and seeing her every

day is quite another. Yikes, I don't even want that image in my

brain. In this case, I'm going to give the Gipper a break.

How to stop Brexit: get your MP to vote it down--

 

"It’s not over yet. A law that passed last year to set up the EU referendum said nothing about the result being binding or having any legal force. “Sovereignty” – a much misunderstood word in the campaign – resides in Britain with the “Queen in parliament”, that is with MPs alone who can make or break laws and peers who can block them. Before Brexit can be triggered, parliament must repeal the 1972 European Communities Act by which it voted to take us into the European Union – and MPs have every right, and indeed a duty if they think it best for Britain, to vote to stay..."

The attached article is one of the better pieces that I have read in this sea of BS surrounding Brexit.

 

Parliamentary Supremacy (PS) is taught in grade school. I was a student of Law in the UK and this doctrine of PS was part of constitutional studies in the first year. UK residents were in my estimation relatively knowledgeable of PS. The Brexit hysteria would have you believe that voters were bamboozled, hence a campaign for a revote.

 

I can just imagine what my Professors at University of London are thinking, particularly the Constitutional ones...

When Nancy wasn't there, Ronnie always had Bonzo, pictured here on the left.

Two family members are very depressed about this, as well as several British friends.  Heaven knows what it will mean in the long-term, not to mention all the upheaval and uncertainly now.  Interesting how many who voted "Leave" now have "Regretsexit," or so they're reporting.

 

I must say, CNN has had  pretty good coverage, especially late at night from London.  Naturally, they've added special Brexit theme music.  The one bright spot was Larry the cat, sitting nonchalantly on his doorstep at No. 10.  Little does he know he's out of a job!

I like to listen to LBC, which is a British radio station. It's available on the Internet. I particularly enjoy Steve Allen, a presenter to talks about many subjects, including of course Brexit. He comes on at 4am UK time, which is 11pm EST. Great stuff.

 

My friends over there are devastated at this self-inflicted wound.

England may have lost to Iceland in soccer because the players' minds were on all this turmoil.

AMERICAN UNION SHAKEN: TRUMP, BREXIT JOLT

 

Cl_kLtMWAAAy7ru.jpg

 

The shadow of Brexit and rising protectionist sentiment loom large as U.S. President Barack Obama meets his North American counterparts to bolster the world’s largest trading bloc.

 

Obama, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto hold the so-called Three Amigos summit Wednesday in Ottawa, with fallout from the U.K.’s vote last week to leave the European Union raising pressure to show confidence in their own alliance. The countries will vow to produce more clean power and cut methane emissions while strengthening economic ties.

 

Risks to North America are palpable, as Brexit roils global financial markets and anti-trade rhetoric ramps up in the U.S. presidential campaign. The meeting -- Obama’s last, and Trudeau’s first -- comes amid opposition to the Trans Pacific Partnership and disputes over visas, lumber, and beef. Yet all three countries see the summit as an opportunity to double down on easing trade barriers.

Obama is a lame Duck. Once Trumpus meets with these two they will know the new lay of the land and a new agenda to Make America Great Again.

 

Trumpus Maximus Americanus!

Prager: Why the Left Hates Referendums
 
The left loves power, not people.

 

One of the common laments of leftist commentators in Europe and America concerning Brexit is that holding referendums is a bad idea.

 

The most frequently expressed example is the contempt in which the left holds British Prime Minister David Cameron for having suggested the referendum in the first place.

 

But why would the left hate referendums? Doesn't it claim to represent "the people"? Isn't "power to the people" one of the most popular sayings of the left? Isn't the American left trying to abolish the Electoral College precisely because it isn't directly representative of "the people's" will?

 

One would imagine, therefore, that if anyone would welcome referendums it would be the left.

 

So, what gives?

Richard Quest on CNN asked this blighter why he did not correct his fellow members when they were forever lying to the public about how much money they would save from exiting the union.  He said his fault was that he was too nice a guy and then he tilted his head back and laughed.

So, that's what you get from a snake-oil salesman once he has suckered you.  A derisive laugh.

The first people to get hurt by Brexit are the people who voted for it.  That is the view of economists.  Manufacturing jobs in the north of England, particularly in the auto sector may be lost.  Taxes will go up as Britain loses its credit rating - which has already happened.  Banks stocks have already lost 30% of their value and after 2008 guess who owns the banks?  The people do.

The same economic disaster is predicted for the U.S. if Trump is elected and guess who will be the first to suffer?  Those that can least afford it.  Those that vote for Trump.
