Brexit started with a referendum.
I suppose that the process will be opposed same way, or maybe harder than this, and it will take longer than the 5 years needed by GB.
Have a nice day
Less if the USA's federal government continues down the path now chosen. Former US Rep O'Rourke (who ran for party nominee against President Unity) has just revealed his consideration for Texas Governor. If he follows through (= handlers fund him, in other words) that will accelerate momentum of Texas independence away from Wash DC.
Would O'Rourke's candidacy accelerate the Texit because his liberal views would agitate the conservative Texans even more?
It's said that Austinite Matthew McConaughey hasn't ruled out a run. That would make an interesting primary-"I'll take your guns" O'Rourke vs "Alright, Alright" McConaughey.
Any idea who'll be on the republican ticket besides Lt. Dan?
"Beto" vs McConaughey would be entertaining, no doubt but I don't think either one would get very far. On the other side, I'm fairly sure we'll see Gov. Abbott seek re-election, and possibly end up as President of the Republic of Texas.
"Beto" single handedly launched the political career of a 33 year young restaurant owner and mother of 4, just elected to the US House from Colorado. His previous positions will doom his candidacy from the start, but he'll make a lot of good noise. His owners will decide if the rhetoric is worth the investment nationally, because it won't make the man Texas governor. .
Excellent! Know any good areas to live in Texas near Louisiana? One of my daughters lives in New Orleans.
If comparisons of any sort to & with The Crescent City are to be made, then no. New-ORLY-uns is unique, across the world.
The Texas region just west of the Sabine requires evaluation in isolation, but it is Texas!
I was thinking El Paso because I like the desert as opposed to the humidity...Im a spoiled Californian. We arent used to big bugs and humidity, but we'll work in 115 degree weather...).
I was thinking if your going to Texas, maybe do it sooner than later if you can...I would say property is prolly going up.
From El Paso to the Louisiana border is a longer drive than from Tijuana to the Oregon California border; the two sides of the state are VERY different, but have a lot in common; both are Texas.
If you want hot & dry, you're not limited to El Paso. It's that way during the summer as far north as Amarillo and everywhere in between. Big bug humidity is southeast Texas, plus alligators, coyotes, fox, wild boar, mosquitoes, cockroaches, mosquitoes, fire ants, snakes. Did I mention fire ants and mosquitoes? Oh yeah, skunks, opossum and racoons. Do you like thunderstorms that'll loosen tooth fillings?
@Saint Irene - If she wants a charming Old World downtown, tell her to look at San Antonio. I think it's beautiful and it's lively.
Yes it is, but no Bourbon Street, Mardi Gras or typical activities. My favorite Texas city.
Im not afraid of wildlife aside from mosquitos and that is one wide state...Ive had the fire ant experience, but thunderstorms that bad?? I cant move till after the San Andreas goes off because I'm scheduled to go for a ride in it so a thunderstorm might seem anti climatic after that. ). I wanted to go to Austin because Im in love with F1 but the weather...I like San Antonio as well...
@Patrick - New Orleans gives me the creeps. San Antonio gives me smiles. I love the architecture and the atmosphere - absolutely my favorite place in Texas too!
Come on down to Orstraylia, we got ya snakes, crocs, great whites, kangaroos, spiders on the dunny seat, drop bears, dingoes , mozzies built like b52 bombers . And that's just in the northern states.😁😁😁
Yes you do, which is the reason my finger never lands there when picking places to go on a map...Lol. No, I'm kidding, Id love to visit Orstraylia...). Some of you guys are great horsemen...
@Patrick I always have loved a good thunderstorm the dog acts like she's going to have a panic attack and die but toss her in the bathroom and she's OK.
Fortunately Texas doesn't have these, but at least half the USA and most of Canada have critters like bears, caribou, elk, buffalo, panthers, wolves and moose. Africa trumps everybody with elephants, gorilla, lions, tigers and rhinos.
@Scott R: Oh yes, a Texas storm will get your attention. If a strong lightning bolt strikes close by, the thunder will shake the ground. The wind gusts are amazing. In many places, having bug repellant is as common as salt & pepper shakers.
Absolutely. The sound of East Texas during and after a storm is the constant hum of generators. Whole house generators are the best choice and local companies are skilled at installing them-they get plenty of experience. Bug spray is a must. Add chiggers to the pest list-the bane an unsuspecting hiker in these parts.
Thanks Pat...now I get to be the first one to mention something is going down...we're are being told to "Buckle up"!
So, Someone posted a video of a priest telling us Trump is involved with the HCP's....how ridiculous. https://youtu.be/Z9ZvscQpo44
Without watching the video, that idea is correct, Trump is most certainly involved with them. He has been a HUGE thorn in their side, and was removed from office because of it.
I'd climb off the rosebush into which I fell too, and also do what I could to make certain it didn't happen again.
He's got TDS...thinks Trump wants to rule with Biden. He's trying to guess his way through this. https://youtu.be/Z9ZvscQpo44
"Trump...has been a HUGE thorn in their side, and was removed from office because of it."
That's exactly what we need to find out. What was Trump going to do in his second term that upset the Illuminati so much and caused the Illuminati to remove Trump?
Too late to 'save' Trump now, but not too late to fight the bad policy of Iluminati.
I saw that succession thing! Good on your Patrick for seeing it!
Everytime I visit my family in El Paso, one uncle reminds me that they still talk about seceded from the Union—like that option has always in their back pocket if sh*t ever hits the fan.
Hailing from Texas myself, El Paso, I’m seriously considering getting my hands on a plot of land. My grandmother asked me if I wanted to buy her house. She lives in the poorest neighborhood in EP, and I couldn’t see any return on so I passed. But, I’m rethinking that now.
PS - sorry about the typos in my post above!!! Secede, seceding, etc. I know how to spell but sometimes my computer doesn’t agree :))))
For the first time since leaving Texas soon after being born in Corpus Christi, i am considering looking at Texas property. I currently have Florida suburban property, Georgia rural land (rolling forested hills, cotton fields and spring fed pond), but the idea of a new Texas nation is appealing in the extreme, especially if neither Georgia or Florida intend to leave the Banana Republic of America.
Patrick...has the Committee mentioned which other states might depart with Texas?
@OtherScott - Patrick said the other states are up in the air. He said we could see something like North Carolina and South Carolina come together to be their own country. He also said some of the states around Texas will think about connecting to Texas, but Texas will tell them they have to abide by their rules, and they may not want to do that.
@ otherscott: I suggest you have a glance at texitnow.org
Being born in Corpus = you may return at any time but The Committee tells me the depart⁚arrive ratio will exceed 2⁚1, if We The People of Texas pull the plug on the USA. Plenty of land, the population density is still low. Texas is 60% larger than California with about 9 million fewer residents. On the other end, Alaska is a little over twice the size of Texas with only 2½ % the population. The weather, like for Florida, is a big factor.
Can I clarify: the depart : arrive ratio would be 2 leaving and 1 arriving? If that is the case, what a surprised. I would imagine the opposite. I am even thinking about Texas as a future destination.
An interesting website: Strange Sounds--Amazing, Weird, and Unexpected Phenomena--"Your daily dose of natural disasters and amazing phenomena from around the world.":
A WEB PLASMA. Anyone have any idea what that is? I have a video of one coming up around buildings in Dublin...
I've never heard of it, is it a nickname for Jack Dorsey's beard? Oooops...I meant Rasputin.
I dont think they meant Long Form but thats prolly as good an explanation as any...). Its not really important but its interesting to see.. Here's a couple examples if anyone wants to take a look.https://youtu.be/g_SZ0yIOZTE https://youtu.be/294M0Ss4xiU
@ Scott R: The video images look like people using a computer image application to generate YooToob hits, to get paid.
Since the post about Texas (above) comes with the title:
A Tremor in The Shift, and is about significant and future predictions about political news and not an actual earth tremor, ...
I’m wondering, when you commented (in an earlier post comment section), “The ‘major geophysical upheavals’ are happening now. Remember the earthquake the last full moon? How about the full moon tomorrow the 28th?”
I thought you meant an actual EQ might well happen during the full moon on the 28th of January. Now I’m thinking you might have been predicting an EQ in the financial sense — as we are now experiencing through the Game Stop, AMC trading news.
Seems to me it might have been but perhaps I read too much into your comment about the full moon, EQ and Jan. 28th date?
Anyway just wondering. Thanks for all yo7 and TC do for us. Blessing to all
You interpreted correctly, Linda.
They are going after everyone who has a gun or ammunition:
That sure doesn't sound like a representation of what "we the people" want....
.... at least this people right here.
If Covid has taught us anything, it's that there are no inalienable rights. Only privileges that can be withdrawn on a whim.
Correct, if We The People allow withdrawal of privileges because authority to do it —overt or naïve— was granted.
Calling something an inalienable right without means to enforce it = privilege on a whim.
This is why Americans, the Swiss and especially Texans, are well armed. Hitler remained outside Switzerland for good reason. Nearly the entire Wehrmacht would have been slaughtered.
Not to mention the Swiss had the bridges rigged to blow up.
I am one-fourth Swiss. I didn't know my Swiss grandfather well, but he was armed to the teeth even in the U.S.
I wonder whether Texas or Scotland will secede first from their respective unions.
If these secession movements progress to fruition, Texas first.
Scotland wanted financial control over oil & gas it produces for the UK. The Prime Minister, Parliament and even the Crown have significant ability to retaliate and punish "Caledonia". The population of about 5.5 million has neither much physical ability to resist nor leverage. I perceived deep concern over this as being the reason the secession did not pass.
Texas has big leverage over the USA's federal government, can become self sufficient very quickly and has unmatched ability around the world, with the possible exception of Switzerland, to resist physical control.
The other thing with Scotland it has a very socialist government and wants to give everything for free to it's citizens, whilst keeping taxes low.
Secondly a large percentage of Scots have strong family ties south of the Hadrian's Wall border, who want to stay in the union.
Scotland voted strongly to remain in EU...
@ TV: About 2 million voted to stay, 1.6 million voted to leave the UK with about 85% of registered voters casting a ballot.
@ Magic Mike: That's what I understood, the greater financial control over oil & gas production would = more goods & services purchased for Scotland with that money.
I was not referring above to the Scotland referendum about leaving UK in 2014, I was referring to Scotland's Brexit vote to remain in EU in 2016. That is what awakened the thought about Scotland's second referendum to leave UK so that it could rejoin EU.
@ TV: Oh, I didn't realize that.
My perception? (I'm not a Scotsman I have no skin in the game . . .) Because Scotland remained part of the UK, The UK's vote to leave the EU was for all of the UK, including Scotland. What individually each part wanted didn't matter.
If Scotland wants to NOW leave the UK to join the EU, that would be like jumping out of the pan into the fire. Scotland would get a raw deal, worse than remaining part of Britain.
EU has stated that it would be happy to take Scotland back. And why not, it would bolster the image of EU...
Has anyone seen the news that came out on the 3 bombs planted in the capital the day before the inauguration?
I have heard on about 3 different websites and YouTube’s about dirty bombs clear back on January 20th. They were saying the stuff that was supposed to stop the inauguration was, like arrests and whatnot, got put on hold because of bombs threats by the HCPs. I thought it was all just conspiracy theory stuff but kind of odd that now on the news they found 3🤔🤔🤔
• Reported when, immediately upon discovery or after sending letters of impeachment to the Senate?
• Was the timing of the reporting accidental or.... designed?
• How about if more than 3 were found, but not reported?
• Or none, and the reports are false?
Oh no, this cannot be. It's accurate, just like the fair, free & honest election of early November 2019. The states certified it!
The dirty bomb threat is a classic Hollywood theme, even the conspiracy theorirists get lazy and can't come up with any original material sometimes 😁😁😁
I'm looking forward to hearing about the clean bomb.
It exists, it is called N Bomb or Neutron Bomb.
The one time CEO of General Electric, Jack Welch, got the nickname Neutron Jack for is management decisions. Leave the building intact but "neutralize" all living things inside, including humans.
Yes, the neutron bomb, only a human could call such a device clean in any way. The Alien ETs are horrified to encounter such a concept.
Our GAGs are simply determined to ensure we never use one.
