British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was dealt a noticeable defeat on Tuesday, September 4, 2019 when Parliament blocked him from carrying out a “no-deal” Brexit.
After this vote, The Hill reports that Johnson called for new elections, which must receive the approval of a two-third majority in the House of Commons in order for them to be called.
This call for new elections came right after the House of Commons passed a bill which allowed members of Parliament to introduce legislation forcing Johnson to request a three-month extension from the EU if a deal is not struck by October 31, the deadline which the prime minister set for Brexit.
Johnson had declared that he would have Britain leave the EU without a deal and was seeking to cut the amount of time Parliament spent debating Brexit. The prime minister’s attempt to cut debate was widely criticized as being anti-democratic.
The Guardian reported that the bill passed by 328 to 301 vote, marking Johnson’s first defeat in a House of Commons vote as prime minister.
Video footage caught a Labour Party member shouting “not a good start, Boris.”
21 members of Johnson’s Conservative Party joined opposition members in voting for this bill.
Despite the calls for a new election, the opposing Labour Party has not offered anything resembling a united front on this issue.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn stated that he wanted legislation passed which guarantees that a “no-deal” Brexit would not take place before new elections commence.
“Let’s see what happens after this legislation has gone through,” Corbyn told reporters Tuesday after talks with other parties.
Corbyn also declared that if an election was called, he would be “absolutely ready to fight it.”
In the case that a snap election is called, it would be the third time in five years that British citizens vote in a general election.
Johnson’s defeat came hours after the Conservative Party lost its parliamentary majority when Phillip Lee joined Liberal Democrats.
As the days go by, Brexit’s fate hangs in the balance.
After voting to leave the EU for diverse reasons — from the effects of EU’s mass migration policies to the EU’s increasing bureaucratic overreach — ,Britain’s political class is not interested in respecting the will of its voters.
These delays only serve to make sure that a genuine Brexit never happens.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
