INITIAL THOUGHTS ON THE IMPACT OF BREXIT

After a not so great night’s sleep, I wake up to the news that the people of Great Britain had voted to break away from the European Union in order to be a sovereign nation, the process termed, Brexit. Polls indicated that the voters would lean toward staying with the EU and the current president of the United States spoke against pulling out.

When I first heard the news, I have to admit that I wondered what this would do to my investment portfolio. Would I be able to continue pursuing my dreams or would I have to get a day job and put my dreams on hold? That remains to be seen.

Once I got over the above selfish hump, my mind went racing. The stalwart British culture that we still kind of depend upon for civility was no more. So many immigrants were allowed to pour into England to the extent that the great city of London was no longer recognizable. Much of London no longer resembled the London that we grew up with…the Beatles, Westminster Abbey, London Bridge, the Tower of Big Ben, and Piccadilly Circus. Instead, parts of London resembled the Middle East and the West Indies.

In April, President Obama spoke to the American people indicating that breaking away from the EU would be a huge mistake. The current president indicated that he only wanted to negotiate trade agreements with the EU and not separate countries. Before becoming part of the EU, Great Britain was an exceptional country, along with the United States of America. It’s obvious that Great Britain wants to return to being an exceptional nation. However the current president of the United States wants the USA to remain on a status quo with everyone else, no exceptionalism. So does presumed Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton.

While the current president and the Democrat nominee for president want the United States to remain on even keep with other countries around the globe, presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump wants to make American great again. In other words, he wants this nation to once again become the greatest nation on earth.

With the good people of Great Britain voting to take back their country, how will the American people vote in November? Will they also vote to take back our country, to secure our borders, to insist that those immigrants who desire to come to America be prepared to assimilate to the American way of life? If you want to be a part of the United States of America and go through the process of becoming an American the right way, we want you, and we’re proud that you’re an American.

Will other EU countries follow suit? What will happen to the European Union as we know it today? Presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump commented on Brexit while in Scotland, indicating that there are parallels to the situation in the U.S. and people want to take their country back. Judge Jeanine Pirro or Fox Cable News agreed with Trump indicating that the vote means that people want a nation-state.

In addition  to President Barak Obama indicating  that he was opposed to Great Britain breaking away from the EU, German Chancellor, Angela Merkel and British Prime minister, David Cameron were against it also.

As a Christian who follows scripture, including scripture about the end times, I’m wondering  how this incorporates into biblical prophecy? These are questions which have yet to be answered, and I am anxious to hear biblical scholar and expert, Dr. David Jeremiah’s thoughts on this. How will it affect our own presidential election in November?

As this scenario continues to unfold, I will be posting about what’s taking place as well as my own thoughts.

CLIMATE CHANGE SUMMIT IN PARIS, OUR PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED

The United Nations conference on climate change will take place from November 30, 2015 to December 11, 2015 in Paris, France. Last week the current president of the United States said the following, “What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be, when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children.”

I often refer to myself as an unenlightened oaf because I’m one of those southern white conservative Christians who the liberals hate. The only good thing about folks like me is that I’m part of a group that you can make fun of and still maintain your aura of political correctness. I call myself an unenlightened oaf because I don’t often understand liberal logic and the way liberals often try to spin their way out of situations where their backs were against the wall. I’ve often said that I may not be a smart as liberals because liberals had a large percent of academicians in their corner. In other words, most school teachers and college professors fall in line with the left. Of course, I say all of this tongue and cheek.

The gloves are coming off and I’m going to call it like I see it. I began using the sarcastic term, “tolerant left,” to refer to liberals who claim to be so tolerant and understanding of other people’s feelings and views, when in fact liberals are the most racist, bigoted, and intolerant people on the planet. Earlier today, I came up with another phrase that might be useful to describe liberals, “liberal dumb.”

To say that the United Nations conference on climate change, COP21, will have an impact in the war on terrorism, is beyond liberal dumb, its shear lunacy. I can’t imagine even the most delusional Obama zombie could fall for something like this.

According to CNN, world leaders opened pivotal climate talks Monday in Paris, saying the stakes are too high to end the conference without achieving a binding agreement to help slow the pace of global climate change. “A political moment like this may not come again, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told leaders gathered for the conference. “We have never faced such a test. But neither have we encountered such great opportunity.”

The current President has said the following, “What greater rejection of those who would tear down our world than marshaling our best efforts to save it.” French President Francois Hollande noted that “never have the stakes been so high because this is about the future of the planet, the future of life.”

It’s time for me to ask a question. How in the world is this climate change conference going to stop the activities of ISIS and other terrorist groups. Even if climate change was real and not a great hoax that politicians are trying to level on us in order to take more control over our lives and eventually create a one world government, it would take time to decide on methods to combat climate change and to implement them. After implementation, wouldn’t it take some time for the effects to be scene? In the meantime, what are ISIS and other terrorist groups going to do? Wait until the climate improves and it’s not so hot where they are? Get jobs and quit their terrorist activities? Of course, the President of the United States thinks that just seeing world leaders make an effort to combat climate change will cause them to change their ways for the better.

Millions of Americans fell for, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” They also fell for, “health insurance premiums will decrease approximately $2,500 a year. I can see low information voters falling for this, voters who rarely watch the news and when they do, they get their news from one of the big three main stream media sources. My limited vocabulary does not allow me to describe how looney, delusional, and insane it is to think the COP21 conference will make ISIS and other terrorist groups cease their activities because they will now have hope that the world will become a better place. It’s always been hot in the Middle East and it will always be hot in the Middle East. Besides, if temps were to cool down in the Middle East, the liberals would blame it on climate change which, of course is the fault of George W. Bush, Fox News, and Christians.
