- The Facts:Brexit is not being implemented as quickly and easily as advocates on the winning side of the referendum would want.
- Reflect On:Will Brexit represent the tipping point for the defeat of globalism?
For those unaware, Brexit represents the scheduled withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK, representing England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) from the European Union (EU). Based on EU rules, the timeline for this procedure would seem straightforward:
1. A majority of UK citizens vote to leave the EU in a referendum.
2. The UK leaves the EU in an orderly fashion. End of story.
However, anybody following the Brexit saga knows it has been anything but straightforward. And the best way to understand why is to see this as a battle between globalist oligarchs and individual citizens seeking sovereignty. In fact, everything that has gone on since the referendum should make us shudder in terms of how precarious the sovereignty of the UK has become under the European Union umbrella, with the number of scare tactics and maneuvers orchestrated to resist the fulfillment of the referendum and eventually reel the UK back into the fold.
Predictably, the mainstream prognosis of the impact of Brexit on the UK is quite pessimistic:
Many effects of Brexit depend on how closely the UK will be tied to the EU, or whether it withdraws before terms are agreed – referred to as a no-deal Brexit. The broad consensus among economists is that Brexit will likely reduce the UK’s real per capita income in the medium term and long term, and that the referendum itself damaged the economy. Brexit is likely to reduce immigration from European Economic Area (EEA) countries to the UK, and poses challenges for UK higher education, academic research and security. (source)
Let’s break down the timeline and talk about the various attempts being made to forestall Brexit.
The Early Days
23 January, 2013: Amidst political pressure, Prime Minister David Cameron says he is in favor of an in/out referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU.
22 May, 2014: The UK Independence Party (UKIP) led by Nigel Farage wins 26% of the vote in European elections and becomes the UK’s biggest representation in the European Parliament. The party, whose one key policy is to leave the EU, also makes large gains in local elections.
7 May, 2015: In the general election, David Cameron wins a 12-seat majority with a manifesto that includes the commitment to hold an in/out referendum.
23 June, 2016: The referendum sees ‘Leave’ campaigners win a narrow victory with 51.9% against 48.1% for ‘Remain.’ Mr. Cameron resigns immediately as Prime Minister.
In the early days of the Brexit movement, globalist David Cameron felt the need to stem the rising tide of support for UK independence from the EU, galvanized by his staunch critic Nigel Farage, and fulfilled his promise of a referendum, never dreaming a majority of voters would support leaving the EU.
The May Days
13 July, 2016: Theresa May becomes Prime Minister.
29 March, 2017: She triggers Article 50 which starts the clock on the process of the UK leaving the EU. Article 50 is a procedure in the Treaty on European Union that sets a two-year timetable for member states to leave the Union.
26 June, 2017: Formal negotiations on The Brexit Withdrawal Agreement begin between the UK and the EU.
13 December, 2017: Rebel Tory MPs side with the Opposition, forcing the government to guarantee a vote on the final Brexit deal, when it has been struck with Brussels.
19 March, 2018: The UK and EU make decisive steps in negotiations. Agreements include dates for a transitional period after Brexit day, the status of EU citizens in the UK before and after that time and fishing policy. Issues still to be sorted out include the Northern Ireland border.
14 November, 2018: The final Brexit Withdrawal Agreement was endorsed by the leaders of the 27 remaining EU countries and the UK Government led by Prime Minister Theresa May, and went to the UK parliament for ratification.
15 January, 2019: the House of Commons rejected the withdrawal agreement by a vote of 432 to 202.
12 March, 2019: The Commons rejected the Agreement again on a vote of 391 to 242.
29 March, 2019: Brexit day – the UK ends its membership of the European Union at 23:00GMT and enters a transition period that will end on December 31, 2020. The Brexit Withdrawal Agreement is rejected a third time by the House of Commons by 344 votes to 286. The British parliament voted for May to ask the EU to delay Brexit until October.
Theresa May was unable to convince the UK parliament of her globalist-centric agreement with the EU. The Labour Party wanted any agreement to maintain a customs union, while many Conservatives opposed the agreement’s financial settlement on the UK’s share of EU financial obligations, as well as the ‘Irish backstop‘ designed to prevent border controls in Ireland. The Liberal Democrats, Scottish National Party and others seek to reverse Brexit through a second referendum. Meanwhile, the EU has declined a re-negotiation that omits the backstop.
The End Days?
24 July, 2019: Having failed to pass her agreement, May stepped down as Prime Minister to be replaced by Boris Johnson.
28 August, 2019: Boris Johnson requests that the Queen agrees to a proroguing (suspension) of parliament for 5 weeks until October 14th. The Queen later agrees.
9 September, 2019: Parliament is suspended for 5 weeks until Queen’s speech October 14th.
24 September, 2019: Supreme Court rules that the suspension was unlawful and void.
25 September, 2019: Parliament resumes.
Boris Johnson sought to replace parts of the agreement and vowed to leave the EU by the new deadline, with or without an agreement. His efforts to prorogue parliament for 5 weeks seemed to be part of a strategy to force a no-deal Brexit at the deadline. Now that Parliament has been forced back in session by a frantic and questionable supreme court decision, there is no telling what the next tactic will be to attempt to forestall the will of the UK citizenry.

Globalism and its tyrannical agenda are being challenged more and more in their political confrontation with awakening citizens. Will the Brexit October 31st deadline be the watershed moment that begins the move away from global enslavement and towards the elevation of individual sovereignty and autonomy?
