Teresa May’s days as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom are numbered.
According to anonymous statements coming from May’s own aides, May will likely be stepping down as Prime Minister by Summer time. This gives the Tories enough time to elect her successor right before the next party conference in October.
Tory Members of Parliament have voiced their displeasure with May’s tepid eadership and are now looking to move on. The commonly held view in London is that May survived challengers within her party last year due to a behind-the-scenes agreement to step down as Prime Minister before the general election. Even with this arrangement in place, a third of the Tory MPs still voted to remove her from power.
As the March 29th Brexit departure date fast approaches, a “no deal” Brexit appears to be on the horizon. This has made many Tories unhappy given their hopes for a negotiated Brexit, but members of the Democratic Unionist Party and European Research Group are content with what looks like an inevitable hard Brexit.
Nevertheless, former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has formed his own Brexit Party in fear that Brexit won’t go through. Farage’s fears are warranted given May’s weak leadership and rumors of a second referendum taking place.
On June 23, 2016 British votes made their intentions clear when they voted 51.9 percent- 48.1 percent in favor of Brexit. Sadly, their political class has lagged behind.
What’s at stake in carrying out Brexit is national identity. The globalist smorgasbord of policies that the EU has foisted upon the UK is dangerous both culturally and politically. The UK is already getting a taste of this through the rise of hate speech laws, immigrant ghettoes, and mass surveillance.
Should it continue along this path, the country will be become another globalist automaton for elites in Brussels to exploit.
The good news is that most of Europe is starting to challenge the EU status quo as witnessed with rise of right-wing parties at the polls in Spain, Matteo Salvini’s populist policies in Italy, and France’s “Yellow Vest” protests.
Populist momentum throughout Europe could be enough to sway the UK to go back on its original course of exiting the EU.
For the sake of the nation’s integrity, Brexit is a must.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
