In a keynote speech in Gettysburg, Pa., about his plans for his first 100 days in office, Donald Trump laid out what he sees as the the core priorities of a Trump presidency, while focusing in the early part of the speech on attacks against Hillary Clinton and Wall Street, and repeating his core message by telling his audience that Washington and Wall Street are “rigged” against him and that he is the candidate to bring “the change that has to come.”
“I am not a politician,” Trump told the crowd. “But when I saw the trouble our country was in, I felt I had to act.” Then, moments after promising Americans that he represented a break from
the status quo, he promised to sue a number of women who have come
forward to accuse him of sexual assault, calling them liars.
Trump also railed against the media for seeking to concentrate its power through mergers and for colluding with his accusers to align against his campaign. He added a new threat to his repeated criticisms of U.S. media companies, when he vowed that in his administration such mega mergers as that between AT&T and Time Warner, which was just announced, would not pass as it leads to “too much concentration of power in the hands of too few.”
“As an example of the power structure I’m fighting, AT&T is buying Time Warner and thus CNN, a deal we will not approve in my administration because it’s too much concentration of power in the hands of too few.”
He would also break up the NBC-Comcast merger saying “deals like this destroy democracy,” and slammed every trade deal the US has ever done as “horrible.”
On the economy:
- “Change has to come from outside our very broken system.”
- “We’ve doubled our national debt to $20 trillion under President Obama.”
- “Nearly 1 in 4 Americans in their prime earning years isn’t even working.”
- “I am asking the American people to dream big once again.”
- “Will withdraw the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
- “Will cancel every un-Constitutional executive action, memorandum, and order issued by President Obama.”
- “We will cancel all federal funding of sanctuary cities.”
- “The veterans will finally be taken care of properly.”
- “If we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by, and for the people.”
- “Fully repeal ObamaCare and replace it with health savings accounts.”
- “We are going to end Common Core.”
On tax reform:
- “Tax forms will be greatly simplified.”
- “When they know there are consequences, our companies will stop leaving the United States.”
On voter fraud:
- “1.8 million dead people are registered to vote. And some of them are voting.”
- “2.8 million people are registered in more than one state… 14% of non-citizens are registered to vote.”
- “According to Pew, there are 24 million voter registrations in the United States that are either invalid or significantly inaccurate.”
- “Just been learned on video that the violent protests at some of my rallies…were caused by paid DNC & Clinton campaign operatives.”
- “We’re going to suspect immigration from terror-prone regions.”
- “Hillary Clinton should have been precluded from running… but the FBI and the Justice Dept. covered up her crimes.”
- “Hillary Clinton is not running against me. She’s running against change.”
- “HillaryClinton is… running against all of the American people and all of the American voters.
In terms of actual political measures that Trump would propose and/or enact, he listed the following six:
- “A Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress.”
- “A hiring freeze on all federal employees.”
- “A requirement that for every new federal regulation, 2 existing regulations must be eliminated.”
- “A 5-year ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government.”
- “A lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.”
- “A complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.”
Support for the European Union bloc is declining across many of the 28 member-states with referendums on whether or not to remain in the EU and elections using the issue as part of a party platform opening up across the continent. One Hungarian official has said: “If you are looking for a country to leave, look at France.”
EXPRESS Since Britain voted to leave the EU member states have rushed to deny they will ever quit the bloc. But rumours in Strasbourg suggest the calls to leave are getting louder in some member states.
Hungarian MEP György Schöpflin said there is “no question” Hungary hopes to stay in the Union, despite recent suggestions of other MPs in the country’s parliament. The MEP said support for the bloc is dipping in France. He said: “If you are looking for a country to leave look at France.
“In Hungary support for the European Union is at around 65 per cent – in France it is around 40, and it is low in Italy as well. “We want a European Union that is ready to listen. They are not ready to listen and they are going their own way. “It is very hard to know what things will look like in three years time.
“What I would say is that there is a trend in this direction but there is also a counter trend and what they want is a federal Europe.” A recent Edinburgh university poll showed 53 per cent of French want a referendum on EU membership with 33 per cent already set on leaving and 22 per cent undecided.
In the wake of Brexit, Marine Le Pen took to the airwaves and declared that “I would vote for Brexit, even if I think that France has 1,000 more reasons to leave than the UK”.
French town Beauvais, which sits between Calais and Paris, is overwhelmingly in favour of a Frexit and has been spurred on by Britain voting to leave. Now rumblings in Brussels suggest a Frexit vote could well be on the cards.
Referendums have rocked the EU over the last few months with the British Brexit, the Dutch refusing an EU treaty with Ukraine and the coming votes in Italy and Hungary. While each vote has been on a separate issue, the common consensus is voters are really using the ballot box to make clear their views on the European Union. And, the prognosis for Brussels is not good.
The senior Brussels politician made the claims in an interview with Express.co.uk over the coming Hungarian referendum on EU migrant quotas.
Viktor Orban’s country will vote on Sunday on whether or not they support taking part in an EU scheme to distribute asylum seekers to EU nations. Mr Orban’s Fidesz Party wants people to reject the will of the EU.
Mr Schopflin said the vote will cary “no legal consequences” and is mainly about support for the Hungarian prime minister. He said: “This last week things look more or less like they are going to come out like the polls say, that a solid majority are going to say no to Brussels.
“Whether that majority is 70 per cent or 80 per cent – turn out will be much more difficult to gage “The quota is about accepting migrants from other EU countries. “What people are really up in arms against is this being a compulsory quota issued by Brussels.
“Hungary has never given its consent. When the government says ‘say no to Brussels’ it’s as much about that as anything else.”

There was a new red dawn in London on June 24, 2016. Voters in the United Kingdom voted to exit the European Union.
CNN put it this way:
Britain has voted to leave the EU, a shock development with profound implications for markets and economies around the world.
Here’s what you need to know:
After a long night of vote counting, CNN, along with major UK media outlets, called the race for the “Leave” campaign. It leads by more than 1 million votes with 90% of districts reporting.
Markets are a bloodbath: The pound has already plunged more than 13% to below $1.33, its lowest level since 1985. London’s main stock index is also set to tank when it opens for trading.
In Asia, Japan’s Nikkei tanked 6.7%, and Hong Kong’s main index dropped 3.7%. Futures suggest that New York is also in for a rough trading day.
Investors are searching for safety: Look for gold and U.S. Treasuries to spike as money pours into perceived safe havens.
The big takeaway? This isn’t a one-day event. Britain’s decision to depart from the EU has injected huge amounts of uncertainty into markets, and it has the potential to upend Europe’s established political order. Buckle up!

In what part of Red Dawn does this #Brexit thing take place again? ~ @BarefootBoomer (an US Army strategist).

June 24th is St. John’s Day. Give a hug to your favorite Ufologist. Lots of them die on this date. As I have mentioned often, the date of the “first” sighting in the “modern era of flying saucers” is June 24th, and it is especially linked to the “Deaths of Ufologists,” including a loss as recently as 2015. Watch the news today and in the forthcoming days to reveal what happened today.
I saw something like this on the horizon. See my June 17th Red Dawn Alert and the followup on June 19th.
In the short term, this has just begun. See “U.K. ‘earthquake’ crushes global markets.” David Cameron has resigned. More to come.
And “buckle up.”
