Will the British “Peasants’ Revolt” spread to America?

(Weekend blog) I’m still struggling to believe that we succeeded, that the British peasants revolted, stood up to the corrupt, self-serving elites and voted for freedom rather than serfdom. Incredible!

Hopefully this Peasants Revolt will spread across Europe. But the most important place where the peasants could revolt against the elites is in the US. You may not like Donald Trump. And he may not be quite as wealthy as he claims. But he seems to be the only American political leader who will stand up for ordinary people against the rotten, money-grabbing, lying elites.

I don’t know enough about American politics to write anything intelligent or original. So instead, here’s the American conservative political commentator Pat Buchanan explaining how Donald Trump might manage to beat corrupt, Wall Street- and Saudi-funded establishment stooge Hillary Clinton:

Stripped of its excesses, Donald Trump’s Wednesday speech contains all the ingredients of a campaign that can defeat Hillary Clinton this fall.

Indeed, after the speech ended Clinton was suddenly defending the Clinton Foundation against the charge that it is a front for a racket for her family’s enrichment.

The specific charges in Trump’s indictment of Clinton: She is mendacious, corrupt, incompetent and a hypocrite.

“Hillary Clinton … is a world-class liar,” said Trump. She faked a story about being under fire at a Bosnia airport, the kind of claim for which TV anchors get fired. She has lied repeatedly about her email server.

She lied to the families of victims of the Benghazi massacre by implying the atrocity was a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islamic video, not the premeditated act of Islamist terror she knew it to be.

Drop “world-class” and Trump’s case is open and shut.

His second charge: “Hillary has perfected the politics of personal profit and theft” and “may be the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency.


Bill Clinton got $750,000 for a speech from a telecom company facing State Department sanctions for providing technology to Iran. The Clintons got the cash; the telecom company got no sanctions.

“Hillary Clinton’s State Department approved the transfer of 20 percent of America’s uranium holdings to Russia, while 9 investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.”

Trump added, “She ran the State Department like her own personal hedge fund — doing favors for oppressive regimes … for cash.”

Together, she and Bill have raked in $153 million since 2001 in speaking fees from “lobbyists, CEOs and foreign governments.”

These figures are almost beyond belief.

Sherman Adams had to resign as Ike’s chief of staff for accepting a vicuna coat from Bernard Goldfine, who had problems with federal regulators.

When ex-President Reagan, after brain surgery, visited Japan to receive that nation’s highest honor, The Grand Cordon of the Supreme Order of the Chrysanthemum, and got a $2 million fee from the media company that hosted his nine-day visit, our liberal editorial pages vomited out their revulsion and disgust.

Where are those media watchdogs today?

Rather than condemning the Clintons’ greed, their conflicts of interest and their egregious exploitation of their offices, the media are covering for Hillary and digging for dirt on Trump.

To substantiate his charge of incompetence, Trump notes that Clinton as Senator voted for arguably the greatest strategic blunder in U.S. history, the invasion of Iraq.

She pushed the attack that ousted Col. Gadhafi and unleashed terrorists who took over much of Libya and murdered our ambassador.

She played a leading role in launching the insurrection against Bashar Assad that has left hundreds of thousands dead, uprooted half of Syria and sent millions of refugees to seek asylum in Europe.

Primary beneficiary: ISIS, with its capital in Raqqa.

And the hypocrisy charge?

Though Hillary and Bill Clinton profess to be the fighting champions of women’s equality and gay rights, they have banked millions in speaking feels and tens of millions in contributions to the Clinton Foundation from Islamic regimes under whose rule women are treated as chattel and homosexuals are flogged, beheaded and stoned to death.

Why do major media let them get away with such hypocrisy?
Because, ideologically, politically, socially, morally and culturally, the major media are with them.

While making the case for the indictment of Hillary Clinton, Trump also outlined an agenda with appeal not only to nationalists, populists and conservatives but working-class and minority Democrats.

If Trump is elected, an economic system “rigged” to enable big corporations to leave and take factories and jobs abroad, and bring their goods back free of charge to kill companies that stay in America, will end.

“Globalism” will be replaced by “Americanism”.

Trade and tax policies will be rewritten to provide incentives for companies to bring jobs and factories here. Was this not also Bernie Sanders’ message? He stood against NAFTA in the 1990s when the Clintons colluded with Bush Republicans to impose it.

In his peroration, Trump spoke of what we Americans had done, how we had lost our way, but how we could, together, make her great again. His finale was surprisingly aspirational, hopeful, inclusive.

In the political year just ended, several unmistakable messages have been delivered.

First, the record turnout for Trump and remarkable turnout for Ted Cruz represented a repudiation of Beltway Republicanism.

Second, the amazing success of 74-year-old Socialist Bernie Sanders in keeping Clinton embattled until California, showed that the Democratic young have had enough of Clintonism.

A majority of the nation said loud and clear: We want change.

Hillary Clinton’s vulnerability is that Americans distrust her; no one believes she represents change; and she has no agenda and no vision.

Her campaign for president is all about her.

As Trump noted, even her slogan is, “I’m with her.”

Rough and raw as it was in parts, Donald Trump’s speech on Wednesday contains the elements of a campaign that can win.

And here’s Trump reacting to the British vote as he explains that in Britain, just as in America, ordinary, decent people want their country back:

  • Tommy Atkins

    Thank goodness it is true David, we still do have a country , on Thursday evening when the polls said all was lost I have never felt so empty and gutted. to think there would have been no point ever voting again it would have been futile, pointless in a dictatorship. We must never get in that position ever again, and we wont.

    We must’nt forget those that tried to undermine us that shouild have been there trying to support us:-


    “Two bits of unfinished business will have to be addressed. There is little doubt that the post-referendum collapse in sterling was exacerbated by the derogatory statements of two men, George Osborne, the Chancellor, and Mark Carney, the Governor of the Bank of England. Both men in office have a duty not to undermine the economy or the currency in their statements. Some latitude can be given in this matter to an incumbent politician, but not to the head of a central bank.”

    “The IMF also made a very bad and inappropriate call, with Christine Lagarde publicly supporting the Remain mantra of gloom and doom in the event of leave. This important institution, which issues the world’s SDRs, would have served markets better if it had kept quiet and prioritised risk control. Its credibility has been badly damaged.”

  • Tommy Atkins

    As to the succession in the Tory party , we had better make sure they dont exacerbate our none existent /leaky borders situation as will their wont.To leave as much mayhem behind them here as we leave the EU.

    Teresa May is not fit candidate to lead us either, the promoter of the Super Snooper Charter to spy on us all via Google and Microsoft etc. their chosen weapons that they reward with low taxation promises.

    The only Politician that stands for all of us of all parties and persuasions is Nigel Farage of UKIP. The man the Main Stream TV media of OxBridge derivation loves to hate or ignore/deride because he is ordinary like one of us.Its a pity there is not a General Election Imminent.

  • Tommy Atkins

    Comments from someone that is neutral and no axe to grind.


    The long-term outcome for Britain is much more favorable than that of the EU. The biggest problem for the EU will be trying to keep the rest of its members from jumping ship as well. The vote in Britain last night will likely mark the beginning of the end for the EU as it currently exists.

  • Tommy Atkins

    Who is going to lead us now? Commeth the hour, commeth the Man or Woman!

    “The Leave victory was as much a vote against Chancellor George Osborne as it was against Cameron. So Osborne is out as potential leader of the Conservatives. Boris Johnson? Not nearly enough people like him, and he fumbled his side of the Leave campaign so badly his credibility, though perhaps not being fully shot, is far too much of an uncertainty for the Tories to enter the upcoming inevitable general elections with.

    Who else is there? Michael Gove? Absolute suicide. Likeability factor of zero Kelvin. That bus these guys drove around which proclaimed they could get £350 million extra a year for the NHS health care system in case of a Brexit will come back to haunt all of them. Just about the first thing Farage said earlier when the win became clear, was that the £350 million was a mistake.

    I guess you could mention Theresa May, who apparently wants the post, but she’s an integral part of the Cameron clique and can’t be presented as the fresh start the party so badly needs.

    Talking about Farage, who’s not Tory, but Ukip, he’s done what he set out to do, and that means the end of the line for him. He could, and will, call for a national unity government, but there is no such unity. He got voted out of a job today -he is/was a member of the European Parliament- and Ukip has only one seat in the British parliament, so he’s a bit tragic today. There is no place nor need for a UK Independence Party when the UK is already independent.

    Then there’s Labour, who failed to reach their own constituency, which subsequently voted with Farage et al, and who stood right alongside Cameron for Remain, with ‘leader’ Jeremy Corbyn reduced to the role of a curiously mumbling movie extra. So Corbyn is out.

    Shadow finance minister John McDonnell has aspirations, but he’s a firm Remain guy as well, and that happens to have been voted down. Labour has failed in a terrible fashion, and they better acknowledge it or else. But they already had a very hard time just coming up with Corbyn last time around, and the next twist won’t be any easier.

    Cameron, Osborne, Corbyn, they have all failed to connect with their people. This is not some recent development. Nor is it a British phenomenon, support for traditional parties is crumbling away everywhere in the western world. ”

    An American view about Trumps chances.

    The EU is dead. France, Italy and other EU countries will push for the same referendum and the people will vote out.
    The insolvent banks across Europe were never fixed. The central bankers just extended, pretended, and printed more debt. Bank failures will trigger further economic strife.
    The credibility of central bankers around the globe will completely disintegrate as their one trick pony method of easy money has proven to be an immense failure for the people.
    With the disintegration of the EU, the possibility of civil chaos and war with Russia goes up dramatically.
    It will be interesting to see if the Fed and their Wall Street banker puppeteers can stop the stock market from dropping by its destined 30% to 50%. The overvaluation is drastic and this could be the Lehman moment, or at least the Bear Stearns moment.
    The credibility of the corporate mainstream media has further disintegrated as they again have been revealed as nothing but propaganda mouthpieces for the establishment. Their anti-Brexit poll numbers were fake. They are not journalists, but cheerleaders for their corporate sponsors.
    The constant media bashing of Trump and cheerleading for Clinton will be disregarded by the silent majority in the U.S. Their polls and opinions can be completely ignored and dismissed. The people of this country who don’t live in NYC, DC, LA, or SF are pissed off. Their mood is dark. They want change. The only person who will give them change is Trump.
    I’m more convinced than ever that Trump will win the presidency in November. This is a Fourth Turning. The status quo never wins during a Fourth Turning.

    A few names to conjour with:


    Suggestions welcome…

  • Tommy Atkins

    See what I mean just read this in the Daily Mail..
    Tory Lord Howard raised the prospect of holding a Second Vote if the EU made significant concessions on free movement.
    NO WAY LORD HOWARD- we just voted we are OUT.. end of Story.

  • AmericanMan

    Want to be one of the sheeple and be Conned? Want to be a fool?

    Trump is a demagogue thriving on fear and conspiracy theory nuts (he started the “Birther” BS movement, for Christ’s sake!) and has the gall to imply that Obama armed these mad dog shooters! (Just to bring you up to speed, some time ago this would be considered Low Treason).

    More to the point, Trump is OUT FOR HIMSELF and doesn’t give a $hit about “ordinary people”–he is the ultimate Narcissist on the ultimate trip. Take it from someone who’s known his antics years Before he became a Celebrity (which gives him an unfair advantage with the media, a.k.a. free advertising!). I’ve played in his casinos. He wants his name and better yet Face on everything. He doesn’t get his way, he turns into a monster with all the self-control as that of a two year old. His idea of diplomacy is to Threaten other nations. He’s very good at insults and threats for he’s a white trash bully who ascended the Capitalism steps that way throughout life. If anyone’s going to trigger a world war, it’s Trump in the White House. But that’s OK since the Republican party here thrives on wars as they make their big bucks through war materiel investments. And he’s not a “self-made businessman” as he had a nice head-start from his millionaire father. Trump’s also the leading Liar in modern politics, but with nobody checking his “facts” you’d hardly know though. The guy’s unstable and changes his position on Everything–so it’s no wonder that his own party is trying to distance themselves for His values are more important than anyone else’s.

    You want Right Wing Authoritarianism, some strong-man with a big mouth who beats his chest and says he’ll “protect” you because he’s the only asshole who can? Then vote for him. But he’ll be the first one to run and hide leaving everyone else to fend for themselves, because that’s how he does business. Only his own sweet ass matters. Don’t believe me? Ask the countless others who were butt-fucked by The Donald in the past. He’s got no honor or decency except to Himself. He uses ans throws away people close to him. He’s as corrupt as any politician can be, if not more so.
    He’s also the biggest disgrace to America to come along in a long time; perhaps even more so than Bush in many ways.

    And yes I’m an actual American who was born and raised here just like my parents and parents before me, not some Brit from the other side of the world who only gets his filtered news of this country through political channels and knows nothing of the dirt behind Trump Enterprises.

  • David Brown

    American Man – for all i know you might right in what you say about Trump.
    But he is the only one who claims to want to stop the third world immigration which is deconstructing the America that was.
    As no other Republican even says the US needs of a border fence with Mexico i think they are all in pay of big corporations and care nothing for the well being of the American people.

  • John Fields

    This has nothing to do with your blog Mr Craig.
    I see that 1.5 million people have signed a petition for a second referendum,
    after throwing their toys out of the pram. Strangely though, all their christian names
    are Mohammed!

  • chris

    Who is orchestrating the anti Brexit rally? Why does the media still keep undermining the Brexit politicians. Might this mean we are being suckered into a second referendum? I, for one, am concerned that the EU plan B has been implemented. I really hope I am wrong.

  • SaintGeorgeSlayedTheDragon

    Earlier today, we showed the front pages of British newspapers on the first day after the historic Brexit referendum. Just as amusing front pages, howeve, abound in Turkey and especially among the pro-government (and thus government-controlled) press, such as the Akit newspaper, which looks at the chaos in the UK and says “the Crusader Union falls apart” (somewhat ironic for the former Ottoman Empire).

    As a reminder, many have noted that the Brexit referendum was not about economic issues as much as about immigration, and not one country received more attention than Turkey, whose EU-membership may have been the key variable that sealed the outcome of the referendum vote. Recall that while David Cameron was assuring voters that “Turkey would not join the EU until the year 3,000”, it turned out to be a lie when it was revealed that Europe was actually holding Turkish accession talks as soon on June 30.

  • John Fields

    I see that the second referendum figure has now reached 2 million.
    This stinks to high heaven. Just think of the forward planning that this requires in so
    short a time.

  • Frederick S

    OK Trump is Americas business, the US Neo Cons opposing Trump trying to start World War 3 is all our business World Wide. That is not filtered words thats MY words.

  • John Fields

    Mr Craig would you please start a petition for a third referendum then the
    17 million English people who voted to leave in the first referendum can all sign
    up for the third.

  • NoMore

    The petition these anti-democratic sore losers have signed is one that was raised for the FIRST referendum. I saw it a month before the vote! It was raised on the 25th May. It was to set unrealistic rules on the referendum result. It is therefore past its sellby date. If you look at the Petition map it is largely driven by rich kids from Oxbridge and prime trougher areas like Rushcliffe and Surrey.

    A least a million of these signatories can’t have bothered to vote in the first place unless they have buyer’s remorse already (babies not adults in other words). Or they have more than one email address (shock!).

  • chris

    This petition really stinks. Go to petition 131215
    1. It was started on the 25th May 16 and asks the government to implement a non existent “rule” that the turnout must be 75% otherwise a second referendum will be called. There is no such rule in the UK.

    2. Really really smelly, click on “petition data” at the bottom and you will be shocked. The whole world is voting on this. A Few examples: More than 7000 from Australia. 5700 German votes.France 15407. votes.Gibraltar 3400 votes. USA 8955 votes.

    We really need to make this public!

  • chris

    Even worse .

    All the UK votes are MP block votes. (Particularly Scots) Tens of thousands of them.

    This is a stitch up to allow Parliament to debate the referendum and to then not implement it.

    Please check the petition.

  • John Fields

    I am pleased at the response from my fellow readers
    with regard to the petition. I think that we need to
    bring Mr Farage in on this one so that he can bring
    his big guns to bear and nip this in the bud. The
    Remain side will only need a straw to grasp to turn it
    into something that may sour our victory.
    This great historical win for the ordinary English
    people should come before a United Kingdom.
    So I hope that the Northern Irish and Scots press
    forward at speed to leave the English and Welsh to
    move forward together and once more trade on the world

    Re The Petition calling for a second vote.

    Comment by Derek Forth on the source of these signers . Read what he says.

  • NoMore

    Do journalists actually do any research anymore? Not one paper reporting on this petition seems to have bothered lifting the bonnet on it, instead reporting it as gospel that 3 million “disenchranchised” “voters” have one by one signed a petition for a re-run.

    The most cursory of investigations into it would show:-

    1) the petition was raised a month ahead of the FIRST referendum and relates to a desire for excessive rules on the criteria for a re-run.

    2) Most of the signatories are from particular pro-Remain MP’s constituencies as Chris above points out – Witney = Cameron; Rushcliffe= Clarke, Oxford, Cambridge Unis etc.

    3) the underlying data shows only 360k signatories from the UK NOT3 million – it has been hacked to death

    4) the underlying data shows (h/t chris again) that multiple signatories are non-UK so are not eligible to use the Petitions UK site. They are getting around this by using proxy servers/incognito mode to hide their location.

    5) anyone think Soros is not behind this?

    By reporting it breathlessly as though it were genuine, instead of exposing it as a fraudulent, hacked sham that should be disqualified, lends it a legitimacy it most definitely does not deserve and could lead to it being debated in Parliament and argued for by the likes of Lammy, Clarke, Cameron (funnily enough).

    Not being a “twit” I have emails as many news and political entities as I can. My wife has shown me her twitta and there are others exposing this fraud but not the MSM.

  • AmericanMan

    Here’s an alternate take on Brexit:

    Again, from an American perspective…

    Brexit might not look all that sweet a year or more from now…

    For that matter, building a wall to keep Mexicans out seems like a rather petty issue when you take in the whole picture…

    But what do I know, right?

  • Barry Richards

    The exit from the EU is going ahead. But the money won’t be saved for two and a half years. In that time the economy will contract and the cost of living will go up, jobs will be lost. Then the saved money will not be used for the NHS or the welfare bill and immigration will go up from the EU in the next two years. Be careful what you wish for it might happen.

  • Pete

    Sick of these twats calling for a 2nd referendum and ignoring democracy. This referendum wasnt just about the EU but what kind of country we live in 20 years time. I was brought up in essex where myself and hundreds of thousands, maybe millions are the children or grandchildren of Londoners that left. We all know why they left and it wasnt because of the smog! We know what multiculturalism looks like its 25 min on a london bound train and we all voted no for our childrens sake. So someone tell them to **** off we won so deal with it.

  • chris

    I think there has been too much talk of money. How about freedom, pride, self determination?

    However, money alone is a fairly lopsided means of judging the state of afairs. Apparently, some billionaires lost a fortune on Friday. Others made a fortune. Day to day monetary fortunes are lost then recovered.On the plus side for monetary considerations, if we had stayed in the EU we would have ended up joining the Euro and then bailing out half of Europe. Avoiding that loss (and many others like subsidies to Ukraine, Turkey Albania etc) is an important financial benefit to the UK.

    I want a future where there is proper democratic accountability. I dont want a remote, centralised, rich unaccountable elite to decide my or my childrens’ future.

    At least 4chan’s hack on the petition has shown up the stupidity due to their desperate EU bias of BBC, Sky and certain newspapers. Dumb as rocks.

  • Brian aged 60 and 1/4

    folks, folks, get a load of this !!!

    I am so fucking stupid that I voted the wrong way and am really upset that Israel is no longer part of the Eurovision song contest !.

    Does this mean Australia will have to leave the Eurovision song contest too as they have split from Austria ?

    Coz if this is true then Sandy Shaw wot used to sing “Thing on a String” and got up Paxton’s nose on t’telly, will have to become a destitute as her pension is now slashed by 40% and all because of them Breakfast Buffoons !.

    Muslim gangs will no longer be able to come here and groom local, 14 year old white girls as prostitutes, so where is all the money going to come from ?

    And then we have the Irish, they are going to become terrorists again coz there is going to be a border.
    Maybe if we give them £££ billions again they won’t kill us , and the Irish terrorists can all become senior statesmen like the last time we bought them off with taxpayers money.

    And if Scotland leaves the UK then Northern Ireland must join up with the South of Ireland coz Scotland will be the spark ! It’s true cos an 18 year old Irish ginger said it on telly !

    So we need a referendum about another refrendumb as everyone appears to have voted by mistake and 700,000 people who live in the Vatican a’ve already signed the petition for a nutther one.

    David Camerooon wants a nutther’ reverendumb too because when he went grovelling round 27 EU countries for a better deal and came back saying he had practically won the lottery on our behalf, wot he really meant was ;

    ” I’ve made a mistake, and really come back with fuck nothing, having had one humiliation after another heaped upon me by a collection of snivelling, cheese eating, surrender monkeys who torture donkeys in between wine breaks and invite Muslims to invade them by coming to Europe in plastic paddling pools. I have no idea how we can possibly survive as a nation if we don’t slip em’ £350 million quid every week !”

    Luckily, the manager of my trust fund ( same one as “we are all in it together” Dave )quickly informed me that the pound will be so worthless that we should be wallpapering our houses with ten bob notes so that I got a head start before the in crowd did the same.

    And.. Talking about the “In Crowd”, does that stupid Mick, Knob Geldwarf never use soap ?
    It’s one thing to stick your fingers up at hard working British fishermen, ( many who are hard working single mums doing a great job, bringing up mixed race children from nine different fathers, who speak Urdu with a Calais accent and who can’t get their children a place at the local school because of a scandalous shortage of teachers ),but its another thing to smell like the seat of hard working Teressa May’s office chair ,who even now is shitting in the wings, waiting to lead the country coz she’s done such a good job deporting one legged Albanian murderers, who piss on war memorials and wot get £2000.00 a month in UK benefits on top of a free council house next to Buckingham Palace. Err…sorry,,,another mistake, he’s still er’e, so where is hard working Chuka UMMa when you want him ?

    Not so far fetched really. the main reason hard working Camerooon resigned is that he is on record as saying he can’t wait to see the first hard working Asian Prime Minister of Great Britain and if he has had to resign to achieve this, then so be it. Why should he have to sort out all the “shit” anyway !

    We already have a hard working Muslim “May Or” anyway as in, May Or, may not be, a terrorist sympathiser. I think I voted for him by mistake too, from my seat in the Vatican !

    Now that the status quo have been deposed the new Status Quo have told Nigel Farage to piss off as he has nothing to offer this New World Order because he is not a hard working single mum ! Beware….. nothing changes !
