American Shockwave Is Next...

June 24, 2016 |

Liverpool, UK: I’m in Liverpool this week, and when I went to bed last night just before midnight UK time (having earlier heard Osmond brother Merrill in a terrific concert at the famous Cavern Club), it appeared that Brits would be staying IN the European Union, as pollsters were universally predicting a 52-48 victory for those advocating staying. By the time I got up a little after 6am, the news was already rocking the world—the UK voted to get OUT of the EU by the very 52-48 margin by which they were predicted to lose.

It can’t be argued that it was decided by a small sampling—a huge 72% of the Brits voted.

A little while later in the morning, Prime Minister David Cameron announced his resignation. The stock markets around the world plunged, and the British pound dropped by its greatest dip in 40 years. (Good thing I brought some US currency to trade!)

Cameron was leader of the Conservative Party, but it was members of the Conservative Party who pushed for withdrawl. Cameron sided with the Labour Party and the institutions of government and finance. The majority of the people, including a significant number of Labour Party people, voted to get OUT.

Why does this matter to YOU in the USA? Because it was a foreshadowing of what will likely happen in November. Those who lead the political and financial institutions will push strongly that we “go along” our path and elect “Hellary” Clinton. There will be a large number (I believe a majority) who in spite of the uncertainty of specific policies, will vote to kick the political and financial institutions in their wide and arrogant rear-ends.

The votes in the UK to get OUT of the EU were those of workers tired of seeing their jobs taken by immigrants who didn’t share the British tradition, culture, and spirit. Many of our neighbors across the pond have felt they were losing their country and culture and that unrestricted immigration was changing their nation. It didn’t help that those wanting to stay in the EU branded the “out” group as racists or xenophobes. It was that many long time subjects of the British empire felt that their country was being lost to those who came to claim “free” benefits, jobs and education, but who also wanted to ignore what made the UK a great country and economy: its commitment to a moral authority and the rule of law and order.

Sound familiar?

This debate has deeply divided the UK, just as America has become deeply divided over essentially the same issues of nationalism vs. globalism. I’ve been speaking out about this for years—that America can afford to welcome immigrants who want to assimilate into America, but CANNOT afford to lose its culture and country to those who have no intention of speaking English, accepting the American Constitution of fundamental rights of the individual and of private property, and the moral authority based on the Judeo-Christian tradition.

Some in the ruling Conservative Party, like Cameron, had become more of the “house cats” of the ruling class. They defended multi-culturalism, unbridled immigration policies, and the siren song of globalism. Blue collar workers and some of the deeply traditional and patriotic British leaders (like Nigel Farage and former London Mayor Boris Johnson) led a revolt against the trend and a move toward a return to a unique and independent United Kingdom.

There is much hand-wringing and panic in the halls of government and finance in the UK. The truth is, no one really knows what will be the result of the UK getting out of the EU. But our friends the Brits determined that what they DID know was that if things kept on the way they were going, their grandchildren would live in a UK that wouldn’t resemble the one they loved and lived in.

Listen carefully to the US politicians who speak of doom and gloom about the British vote. Expect some of the GOP like Paul Ryan and other institutionalists tied to the financial empires to join with Democrats to call the vote “racist, short-sighted, and dangerous.” And watch them in November when they get their own comeuppance by an American people tired of watching their jobs disappear to other countries, the middle class getting sucker-punched and losing net worth while the globalist financiers made billions anyway, and while the best answers from the so-called conservative leaders were slashing Social Security and Medicare, gutting the basic constitutional rights of citizens to protect their jobs and their property, and pretending that there is no moral authority for our government.

A big shock in the UK; a big lesson and something to watch for in the United States.

    to bee gee, if we "devolve" as you say and it mean retaining our soveirnity and our Constitution and rule of law . I say that indeed should be our goal as it was to the Brits that voted to exit

    Yes indeed majority of England has voted for Brexit. But that doesn't make it right. Watch as Great Britain devolves to Little England. Is that what you want for United States of America - to become Divided States of America? Sure seems like it.

    First Mr.Huckerbee let me commiserate with you for having to spend time in Liverpool as it is an industrial dump where probably the majority voted to leave the EU as it was the young uneducated and old uneducated who voted to leave. The former have not been deprived employment because of immigration but because they are uneducated and are going to be the losers because the EU provided valuable protection to these individuals as it did to the other main group supporting exit, that is the old jingoists yearning for the good old British days of land of hope and glory. It is old curmudgeons like you that the young educated electorate is tired of listening to and who keep adorning the media with feeble attempts to disseminate misinformation just as George Bush did to justify the invasion of Iraq. The Huckabee’s and McCain’s of this world should be relegated to God's waiting room. Moreover, the majority of Americans until Friday morning had never heard of Brexit and Liverpool is only known because of the Beatles. Also, I doubt one Brit knows who the hell Mike Huckabee is, and, if they did, they could not give a damn. Why not go away and prepare for another failed attempt at the Presidential nominee. A waste of time, space and money. If Trump is elected, the markets will be in free fall and America will be entering its darkest days since the great depression.

    I'm surprised there were no comments by now. A well written and well thought out as well as diplomatic explanation of what has happened in the UK this week. What a difficult decision it must have been for many people. Actually, I would like to see the referendum voted on again. There must be lots of people having second thoughts. And the margin between the two different votes was so narrow. And I agree that much of the same reasoning and emotional passion is occurring in the US. And the second thoughts have already begun to emerge. What price we may pay for what we view as freedom.

    Thank you Mike, from UK. I cried when I woke up Friday. We got our freedom back! God bless Great Britain and we hope you do the same this November! There is still hope for liberty. We will stand by you always

    Mike, spot on my friend. I've always liked your thinking, but have never publicly commented on it. I will today because your words ring so true. God Bless, and how do the words "Vice President Mike Huckabee" sound?

    I was born in the United States in 1952 and this was, without a doubt, the best place to live on the globe. Now I tell my wife that we are checking out, just in time. I feel bad for my children , but there is nothing I can do but vote. The U. S. is self destructing. Trump is not perfect by a long shot, but he is our only shot.

    Right on and I expected the be exit and bought some gold. Currency wars are about to begin?

    Well said Mike! As an immigrant, I came to America to embrace the principles & values she was founded upon and what made her the greatest nation in the world and what was passed on from one generation to another. I am afraid for what we are becoming and what we will pass on to future generations of Americans!

    Right you are, Mike Huckabee. Americans are fed up with paying to import those who plan to kill us. Worse, those we've mistakenly elected as conservatives, have bowed down to the Dictator, as the Dictator bows to our enemies and punishes our friends. There are still enough voting Americans old enough to remember September 11th, Ronald Reagan, and what TREASON looks like. November cannot come soon enough.

    I always admire your wise way of speaking. It is always advantageous for observers to learn what other are going through. Yes, Lesson. God Bless you Governor

    Very well said Gov. Huckabee. Yes, this is exactly how real citizens feel. I'm not a racist nor a bigot, I'm an American Citizen who is having cuts in Social Security, that I paid weekly, then monthly for over 40 years. I'm not getting a freebie, if I had been able to put that money away, or invest it, you know as well as I do, it would have amounted to much more monthly than I'm getting.

  • You're a moron

    Wow, you are a complete and total moron. Congrats!

    Huckabee is a wise man. I agree, and pray he is correct. Britons had their fill and stood up for their homeland. I hope Americans do the same in November.

    HI, MIKE
    IT SEEMS TO ME THAT SO FAR AN IMPORTANT POINT IN ALL OF THIS HAS NOT GARNERED MUCH ATTENTION. THAT IS DAVID CAMERONS RESIGNATION, HE IS I BELIEVE SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT AS A SERVANT! THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE CHOSEN HIM AS THEIR LEADER NOT AS KING OR DICTATOR. THIS IS THE TYPE OF ARROGANCE THAT OUR AMERICAN POLITICIANS ARE DEMONSTRATING MORE AND MORE TODAY. IF THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE
    GOES AGAINST THEIR PERSONAL VENUE THEN THEY ARE TO BE IGNORED OR DEEMED AS IRRELEVANT OPINIONS. BUT UNFORTUNATELY WHEN THE DECISIONS OF THE PEOPLE HERE
    IS CONTRARY TO WHAT THE ESTABLISHMENT WANTS, THEY UNLIKE CAMERON WILL NOT THROW A TANTRUM AND LEAVE OFFICE. INSTEAD THEY STAY AND CONTINUE TO TRY AND TWIST EVERYTHING BY ANY MEANS POSSIBLE TO ACHEIVE THEIR OWN ENDS. AND THIS IS
    SO SAD FOR THE GREATEST NATION ON EARTH. GOD BLESS THE U.S.A.

    Mike:
    Glad you are enjoying UK and have an opinion on the BREXIT leaving EU. My opinion as ten's of thousands perhaps now 35 million American Conservatives and even a few Dem's with any moral core, is this idea for a One World Government and One leader who is still not known but would eventually rise up, is that No one has a right to ruin a nation with illegal immigration, no one has a right to take over a nation and ruin its Constitution, no one has a right to dispense with a Sovereignty of America. And no one has a right to write the laws as he goes along against the Constitution and the Congress and make him or herself into a dictator. The nation of America has but one destiny and that is to be a Free and Democratic Republic not a enslaved nation. and IN GOD WE TRUST should never be taken off the walls on our plaques or halls of Congress, nor our money, or torn down by liberal Judges nor by illegals and their minions. And as for open Borders, just ask those in border towns, and farmers and ranchers and folks who have been murdered or their cattle rustled or killed or homes broken into by drug cartel thieves, what should be done to stop the ruin of America. And further, this war for oil and pipe lines that Bush started and Clintons involved in, you know that this is not legal No matter who is the head of a nation, including the BO unscrupulous actions. Wars are created by men, and not God. So who do we point at and blame, the list is long and harsh. I am all for the Brits and any sovereign nation that wants to escape the enslavement of their people and to step up and get out of the EU. Those People should remain free from socialism.

    I agree with Senator Huckabee, too many of the politicians are living rather well and too many of us citizens who have good educations and are not living rather well, in spite of what we were lead to believe, are looking only to retain a means to earn that expected income that is currently being stripped away from us by the incoming groups of people who we were supposed to have welcomed into this country. But nobody is welcoming these people in who are accepting an unemployment check for a third of their prior wage or salary, if they still get one!
