CABINET COUP AGAINST MAY? (WITH LATE UPDATE)

Well, it's finally happening... supposedly. According to news coming out of the United Kingdom and the following story in Zero Hedge, Prime Minister Theresa May is facing an open revolt of her cabinet against her leadership of the Tory party and the government, and it's all over Brexit:

UK Coup Erupts: Theresa May Cabinet In Revolt, Plotting Her Imminent Overthrow

This says it all:

Theresa May may have days, if not hours, left as prime minister of the UK following a full-blown cabinet coup on Saturday night as senior ministers moved to oust the UK prime minister and replace her with her deputy, David Lidington.

According to the Sunday Times, following a "frantic series of private telephone calls", senior ministers agreed the prime minister must announce she is standing down, warning that she has become a toxic and “erratic” figure whose judgment has "gone haywire."

The plotters reportedly plan to confront May at a cabinet meeting on Sunday and demand that she announces she is quitting. If she refuses, they will threaten mass resignations or publicly demand her head. The "conspirators" were locked in talks late on Saturday to try reach a consensus deal on a new prime minister so there does not have to be a protracted leadership contest. (Italicized emphasis added)

Chief among the causes of May's losing her cabinet's confidence is the sudden turn-abouts in her positions within the last week:

As the Times details, the coup erupted "after a week of mistakes" by May, who delivered a television statement that alienated the MPs whose support she needs for her Brexit deal and then flirted with backing a no deal before performing a U-turn.

One cabinet minister said: “The end is nigh. She won’t be prime minister in 10 days’ time.”

A second said: “Her judgment has started to go haywire. You can’t be a member of the cabinet who just puts your head in the sand.”

Similar to recurring mentions of the 25th Amendment in the US, concerns about May’s mental and physical resilience are widely shared. Officials in parliament were so concerned about May’s welfare they drew up a protocol to extract her from the Commons if she collapsed at the dispatch box.

For now May has refused to comply with the coup's demands, and the Times sources at Downing Street say May has not yet come to the conclusion that she should resign and is still being encouraged by her husband Philip to fight on. But she has also lost the confidence of key allies whose job it is to maintain party discipline. Whether she remains or quits, the current Brexit process remains irreparably broken: Julian Smith, the chief whip, believes there is no prospect of the prime minister winning support for her deal unless she announces that she is standing down so the second phase of Brexit negotiations can be conducted by a new leader.

So in other words, May was flirting with a hard "no deal" Brexit, then reneged on that, while the coup planners are banking on a second round of negotiations, and that from a position that can only be perceived as weak after a leadership contest!

It's difficult not to lay the blame for the whole fiasco at Prime Minister May's feet, since her performance has been one of stellar weakness at a time when the Euroskeptic parties on the continent are also bucking the dictats coming from the Brussels-Berlin axis; she has been unable to capitalize on that politically at a time when the Big Two of the European Union, France and Germany, have their own weak governments and are increasingly under fire, in France's case, almost literally. To botch an opportunity like that takes real talent that can only be learned at the Angela Merkel school of politics.

The solution, as the article points out, is a temporary premiership under Deputy Prime Minister David Lidington, who would take over the premiership after a May resignation, conduct negotiations, and then (hopefully) turn over the party leadership to a more permanent leader after that.

There's two flies in that ointment, and they're major ones. One of those flies is former cabinet member Boris Johnson whom this author well-remembers from his Oxford days, the other is Jacob Rees-Mogg.

The sad part of all of this is, Britain was warned by a previous Prime Minister who was also a woman, that the European Union scheme would ultimately dilute British sovereignty. No one listened, and she was ousted by a similar cabinet coup and a globalist was put into her place.

And now the lessons that were ignored back then have come home to roost.

So what's my prediction? That will all depend on what happens on the up-coming meeting on Sunday. If May's leadership is successfully challenged, or even if it is not and mass cabinet resignations occur, then one will have to watch Mr. Johnson and Mr. Rees-Mogg very carefully. Both men have been quietly drawing attention to the problems in Ms. May's "deal", and both, if one has been watching them, have been carefully stumping and speaking around the country in classic political stumping style, and a party leadership contest could see them emerge as contenders, though efforts have been made to stop Johnson's leadership ambitions (see MPs plot to stop Boris Johnson ever becoming Tory leader – 'There is NO chance'). Just as a personal note, having been distantly acquainted with Mr. Johnson and watching him campaign in the Oxford Union society, it's never a safe bet to count him out...

Either way, May's days, like Merkel's and Macron's, seem to be numbered.

See you on the flip side...

(There was an update after I composed the above blog: Parliament has voted to take control of the Brexit process from PM MAY:

Parliament Seizes Control Of Brexit From Theresa May)

And yet another update: apparently Commons has another vote coming up tomorrow concerning an extension and approximately one half of May's Brexit deal.... it's getting impossible to keep up with!)

  1. The farce that is Brexit and our bewilderment about it are symptoms of a deeper malaise. Brexit is a metaphor for a fork in the road which humanity has reached. The choices we have to make are spiritual more than temporal. We are fighting the wrong battle. This, like everything else, is a multi-dimensional battle and until we shun the theatre of fake everything deliberately performed to distract and disempower us, humanity is never going to embrace and address the spiritual issues. Humanity needs to form an unbreakable intent anchored in love to own who we really are and step into our power as divine creator beings. Until then, the shepherds will continue to control and manipulate us into creating the reality they want and continue to harvest our energy. Unacceptable!

      Gee! I never thought to find anyone saying that sort of thing here. If you are into that spiritual warfare lark, then you may find this outburst from Alex Jones to be of some interest

      If you scroll down to the comments, someone has transcribed most of what AJ said.

      I’ve just listened to that video clip again and it’s really odd.
      When I first heard it just over a week ago, there was no music overlay.
      Tonight, as I listened to it again, there’s this annoying music which is drowning out what AJ is saying, even though it’s the same video from that uploader.
      Maybe it’s because we had a major timeline shift since I first listened to it …….

      This may not appeal to you but I was gobsmacked when I heard what AJ was saying because most of it is in line with what I discovered in drips and drabs over the past 9 years

          I was writing a long reply to you when the page mysteriously disappeared.
          I expect there would have been a major timeline shift around 5th March and another around 29th March
          Mind you, I could be wrong.

          Have you read The Enlightenment?
          It should be available at this link but it’s not working for me right now.
          I was told it’s a true story and when we were discussing this on another website, someone there said she remembered creating worlds as described in the book.

          Other possible dates of major timeline shifts in March were the 12th, 13th, 16th and 17th.
          There were many things going on last month but the 5th and 29th were more ‘major’ than the other dates.

          I have noticed many planetary timeline shifts.
          The 1st notable occasion was in late October 2014.
          I was following 2 Facebook pages on a daily basis – Inelia Benz’s and Aluna Joy’s.
          I found an amusing video posted on Benz’s FB page and posted it in a private forum.
          A few days later, when I looked at the FB page, I realised that a different amusing video had been posted instead of the one I pinched.
          The chances of Benz altering an old post to switch funny videos is close to zilch.
          At that time, I also noticed something strange in Joy’s FB page
          I was accessing that page daily and my eyes were caught by a large colourful photo of an elder who has died
          Except that the photo had been posted further down the page because it had been uploaded a few days earlier.
          How could that happen without me seeing it on the day it was uploaded?
          ‘Twas this major timeline shift which resulted in a different video on Benz’s FB page.
          A friend did warn me a week earlier that things will get a bit funky but I had no idea it would get THAT funky
          Incidentally, the funny video I posted in the private forum remained the original (which I consider to be much funnier than the substitute).

        3. gizadeathstarcommentator

          Yup, someone else has noticed the 29th timeline shift.
          In the private area of a website, the site owner said something really weird happened to her on Friday- some deep woo woo stuff
          Dunno what as I haven’t got time to listen to her broadcast
          There will be more to come

  2. At the entrance to the Visitors Centre of the European Parliament, there is a plaque with these words:

    “National sovereignty is the root cause of the most crying evils of our times….The only final remedy for this evil is the federal union of the peoples.”

    Juncker speech 2017 Munich.
    No Member State is entitled to conclude trade agreements bilaterally. Nor, in fact, should it be able to.

    In fact, I had no idea what a good job we had done and just how tricky and interwoven the connections are between EU Member States. Twenty-six thousand laws in Britain will have to be changed before Britain’s exit from the European Union can be finalised; yes, 26 000.

    EU Commission 2018: The Commission proposes to eliminate all rebates and to reduce from 20% to 10% the amount Member States keep when collecting customs revenues (being one of the “Own Resources”) for the EU budget.

    Mark Leonard, Centre for European Reform 2005.

    Europe’s power is easy to miss. Like an ‘invisible hand’ it operates through the shell of traditional political structures.

    The British House of Commons, British law courts, and British civil servants are still here, but they have become agents of the European Union, implementing European law.
    This is no accident. By creating common standards that are implemented through national institutions. The European Project can take over countries without becoming a target for hostility . Europe doesn’t change countries by threatening to invade them: its biggest threat is having nothing at all to do with them.
    was scrutinised and debated in Parliament during its passage and agreed by both the House of Commons and the House of Lords. The Act set out the terms under which the referendum would take place, including provisions for setting the date, franchise and the question that would appear on the ballot paper. The Act did not set a threshold for the result or for minimum turnout.

    The Prime Minister ( then Cameron) made clear in his statement to the House of Commons on 27 June, the referendum was one of the biggest democratic exercises in British history, the decision must be respected.

    5 Sep 2016 : The Prime Minister ( now Theresa May) has made it clear that there will be no attempt to stay in the EU by the back door; no attempt to delay, frustrate or thwart the will of the British people; and no attempt to engineer a second referendum because some people did not like the first answer.
    The people have spoken in a referendum offered to them by this Government and confirmed by Parliament —by all of us, on both sides of the argument—and we must all respect it. That is a simple matter of democratic politics.

    MPs were issued an instruction by the British people and it was clear. They were told to withdraw the UK from the European Union.
    A fundamental principle of our democracy is that our elected representatives are held up to scrutiny and criticism, if this is not carried out.

    MPs are turning the UK into a plutocracy.

  3. I just saw this comment over at Ars, and I had to share it:

    “I grew up in communism. We got used to bribery and corruption at early ages.

    At age of 22, I moved out and traveled the world. West is where I wanted to end up, of course. And I ended up there.

    To this day, the biggest shock in my life was realization that what we called ‘bribery’ and ‘corruption’ was called ‘donations’ and ‘lobbying’ in the West. And was perfectly acceptable in society.

    Human nature, I guess.”

    1. Goshawks, I’ve seen nothing but confirming of your explanations from all sources aeronautical on youtube and web. I’m also hearing now’s the time to go long boeing. with all the defense orders coming to boeing in the future through shanahan. gotta wonder now. it does seem unusual that they would over authorize that control system to take over so persistently.

      1. ZDB, yeah, Boeing screwed-up big-time with their design & implementation of MCAS. The semi-complicit FAA is probably also “lawyer-ed down” to the Max (sorry). In addition to the safety/documentation aspects of the oncoming Perfect Storm, it will be interesting to watch the FAA vs EASA (etc.), the Airbus vs Boeing (slanted for future Sales), the America vs World (politics), the engineers vs management, the lawyers vs plaintiffs, and other ‘interested parties’ slants on things. Wow…

  4. to may or not to may, that is not the question.
    it’s all a circus of clowns who have no intention of allowing democracy to work. if it did (/Mark Twain), they wouldn’t allow it.
    brexit vote proves that.
    if only these conniving types were put into labor camps from 1500bc.

  5. . . . Given how many player’s stand to lose and others to gain with this Brexit deal this-way or that-way, no matter which way the sword swings, the peoples of the Islands have their work cut-out to restore some semblance of order that the Speaker of the House of Commons can not enforce. One need only ask where their (UK citizenry) priorities lie; independence of the individual from the state (now also the European Union (EU)); a reduction of governmental influence (interference might be to harsh a term) in the economy to include concerns of tenant owned housing, education (not indoctrination into another’s idea of union or cultural sociology), health and welfare services limitations to include practices of prevention toward healthy lifestyles; privatization or naught; legal limitations of trade unions as opposed to free reign of power grabs by member activists, to name several items weighing in on the newer version of the peoples of that Island nation due to what some have suggested, uncontrolled immigration matters or impositions. In some ways, a simpler method has long since past than these modern convolutions of whose-land-is-whose affords – borders included.

    Anyone remember PM Margaret Thatcher and the sudden unification of the Germany’s before PM Thatcher became a back bencher? There was an issue of no-confidence then, too, but not for the same reasons and before European Union became an expanding threat to toady’s Russia soon after the Soviet Union fall. You know, that former UNION further east of the western portion of today’s expanding European UNION which was intended to remain in and of western Europe. Subtlety of subtleties, biting off more than one can chew one soon chokes saying very little coherently, if at all. If one sees buzzards circling overhead, it may be time to move on even if it’s slowly.

  6. Will the real puppetmasters reveal themselves an invasion of Earth will not come like Independence Day. The real invaders’ strength will and has always been their anonymity.

    1. One could say “Satan’s” greatest achievement was convincing the world he doesn’t exist…
      It’s more a matter of shear numbers, I think that makes them hide. Must be terrible to live a life of fear of discovery. How “illuminated” can they be living in the shadows…

  7. May has never been a strong leader, just another puppet inserted into a public position of power to do the bidding of her pay masters. As Home Secretary she was inept (immigration continued to accelerate) but she got away with it by talking hard (and lying) and was mainly out of the public spot light giving scripted interviews and phrases. As PM she has shown what a poor thinker she is, unable to publicly speak with confidence and simply unable to think on her feet when put under the slightest of pressure. These are usually traits an MP is usually brilliant at – lying with gusto.
    Maybe the idea here is to actually destroy British democracy which has typically been seen as the global yardstick (yes, I know it’s all a charade but plenty of good people believe in it) as a means of taking another giant stride towards their globalist one world dictatorship. I don’t think Brits have it in them to rise up with pitch forks and turf them out of Westminster, so if civil unrest were to occur it will probably be engineered by the usual suspects.

  8. As in the USSA, no one is listening to the peoples wishes in all this. The globalists are going to do what the globalists want, the wishes of the population are apparently of no consequence. Europe has it’s 911 in the form of an invasion of Islamic immigrants. The plan is to pit Christians against Muslims while a small ME nation stirs the pot and reaps the benefits.
    Judaism is its own form of breakaway civilization, being the only “humans” on the planet, the rest of us considered “animals” without a soul. Stir in the ” Nazi International” and you have a clash of many “civilizations” vying for ultimate supremacy all being played against the other while the globalists continue to consolidate their ownership of the planet in the background.
    The “politicians” are just doing the bidding of their masters and no one is listening to the people anymore. It’s as if we don’t exist.

    1. Feels like they are listenin. That they are running our reactions thru think tanks . Then devising and revising narratives to drive us this and that way. Saw a link today that naacp nominated jussie smollett for an image award. So many self contradictory and inflammatory plot twists in every narrative. This embarrasses dickens. Feels like the intent is the same as the memories of the 2000 pres selection and the sept 2001 narratives. So whats a well intended well focused collective and individual mind to do?

    2. Modded again. Hmm. Tuff one to figure out.

    3. I agree. The ruling elite are doing just what they like. The people, or ‘stock’ as we are called by the EU Commission, are fulfilling a plan put in place decades ago.
      Juncker is a big admirer of Kalergi Coudenhove.
      DEC 2018 Juncker relived a quote from an influential leader of one of the original movements for the creation of a unified European state – Count of Coudenhove-Kalergi.
      Speaking at Prosper Haniel, Germany’s last coal mine, Juncker said “Count of Coudenhove-Kalergi said in an impressive essay, so impressive that hardly anyone knows him anymore, he said, ‘We in Europe, if we want to avoid war between the European nations, we have to take coal and steel from the national hands and combine them on the European level……..Juncker is not even bothering to hide the admiration the EU Commission has for Kalergi any more.
      Add to that, Practical Idealism by Kalergi, so beloved by the EU Commission :
      The man of the future will be a mongrel. Today’s races and classes will disappear owing to the disappearing of space, time, and prejudice.

      Most Rustic human inbreeding is the product of the Urban human hybrid. Parents and ancestors of the farmers usually come from the same, sparsely populated Area. …The result is that many hybrids lack character….The inbred man is Einseelenmensch – the mongrel ….Where in unfortunate auspices of inbreeding and mix meet, they create degeneration types …The man of the distant future will be hybrid. The noble man of the future is neither feudal nor J ewish, neither civil nor proletarian: he will be synthetic. The races and classes in the modern sense disappear.
      The chosen people of the future may be a physically highly bred
      Rustic gestures and nobility perfect body, a mentally-educated urban nobility spiritualized Physiognomies durchseelte eyes and hands.
      Sound familiar?
      Kalergi also says that Buddhists are a threat.
      The Buddhist danger – Buddhism would stifle the technology – and with it the spirit of Europe…..mysticism of Asia in Europe threatens mental clarity…Only when Europe resists these temptations and dangers and be conscious of their own Hellenic and Germanic ideals – it will fight to redeem themselves and the world..( Is this part of why we are seeing alternate thinking/medicines being made fun of or dismissed, and new EU legislations putting many health shops out of business?)

    4. the bot is odd. been a few hours. will try again

      Feels like they are listening. That they are running our reactions thru think tanks . Then devising and revising narratives to drive us this and that way.

      Saw a link today that na acp nominated a gay black actor recently indicted who apparently must not be named for an image award.

      So many self contradictory and inflammatory plot twists in every narrative – more di – ckensian than mr di – ckens.

      Feels like the intent is the same as the memories of the 2000 prez selection and the sept two thousand one narratives. So whats a well intended well focused collective and individual mind to do?

      1. wow. made it. apparently one must be more careful in how charles di- ckens is referred to.
