Farage and Trump on “Freedom and Winning”

A left-leaning British news outlet has just keenly informed us that Nigel Farage was the first British politician to meet Donald Trump after the US election. Needless to say, we were meant to read something very deep and very meaningful hidden within those informative lines. Something sinister, perhaps; such as Trump agreeing with Farage – or Farage agreeing with Trump - on certain things.

So, yes, Farage met Trump before the British Prime Minister met Trump. What should we conclude from this? Some people have said that this made the British PM look “very foolish”. Indeed Theresa May won't be meeting Trump until next year; by which time, no doubt, she'll have had time to see how the political cookie has been crumbling. (Mrs May plans to visit Trump in the first three months of 2017.) Nonetheless, May has spoken to Trump by telephone. That, of course, is a very formal procedure which is expected from every British PM after an American election. Did she offer Trump some advice on how to deal with the Muslim Brotherhood/CAIR? No; don't be silly!

On top of all that, there's even been talk of Farage being a “go-between” for the British PM and Trump. That, of course, implies that Theresa May will need a go-between.

As for the title of this piece, a Ms Kellyanne Conway (Trump's spokeswoman) said that Trump and Farage "enjoy each other's company and they had the opportunity to talk about freedom and winning and what all this means for the world". Conway also said, rather unoriginally, that the meeting had been "very productive".

After the meeting, Farage himself said:

"It was a great honour to spend time with Donald Trump. He was relaxed, and full of good ideas. I'm confident he will be a good president. His support for the US-UK relationship is very strong. This is a man with whom we can do business."

Despite all that, the British Government has said that UKip's Farage will have "no role" in the Conservative Government's relationship with the new US administration. That's hardly surprising. If that were the case, then that too would be embarrassing for the Conservative Party. That's unless the Tory Party thinks that keeping a healthy political distance from Trump will benefit it in the long (or short) term. I doubt that! The Tories should take heed of what the US election and the EU referendum results have implicitly said to the establishment and/or the elite: namely, “Listen to the people!” On the other hand, any attempt by Theresa May and Co. to become newbie “British Trumps” will quickly be seen through! To be honest, most current Tory MPs and leaders share very little with Trump. Indeed most are ostentatiously proud of that fact.

On another point and during the aforementioned meeting, Farage asked Mr Trump to return a bust of Sir Winston Churchill to the White House Oval Office. Farage said he'd been "especially pleased" by Trump's "very positive reaction" to the idea of the bust returning. The said bust was removed by (then) President Obama as soon as he arrived in the White House. Obama, quite possibly, simply didn't have much time for Dead White Males. He does, however, have much time for Dead Black Males like Martin Luther King. (Obama substituted the bust of Churchill with the bust of Martin Luther King.) Whether or not Obama “snubbed” the Brits because of this, I'll leave the reader to decide. Nonetheless, after his meeting with Trump, Nigel Farage did state the following:

"... thank goodness, we are coming towards the end of an American president who loathed Britain.”

What about Conservatives in the UK loathing Donald Trump?

It's not surprising that Nigel Farage has said that Theresa May and other Conservatives have been “quite rude” about Trump. It's not surprising because, like the Obama administration, most – though not all! – British Tories believe in mass and unvetted immigration, the appeasement of Islamism, the European Union and all sorts of other - seemingly – Left-Liberal causes.

To get back to the rudeness. That means that British Tories should accept that "there are some fences to be mended". Farage also said that “Trump is an Anglophile” who “understands and recognises what our two great nations have done together between us” (as spoken on Fox News).

In terms of the 'dismal science' (i.e., economics), Farage said:

"One of the things we can do, we can have between us a sensible trade relationship, cut tariffs, we are massive investors in each other's countries. There's a bright future."

Despite all that, Trump had already joked to reporters when he said: "We're just tourists."


So firstly we had the Brexit Show. And now Donald Trump is President of the United States of America. Both these events, it has been said, were the result of “people power” (or the “voices of forgotten voters”). They were forgotten by the Left-Liberal elite; who, after following the words of Saul Alinsky and Antonio Gramsci, “took over the institutions” (e.g., the law, universities, parts of the BBC, parts of the Church, NGOs, charities, etc. ). Then, of course, these Alinskyite or Gramscian acolytes went on to take over various parts of various governments.

Still, the British Conservative Party - as well as others - shouldn't focus entirely on securing the votes of these forgotten voters. They should, instead, listen hard to what they have to say. Again, this isn't about gaining back votes (though votes will be needed): it's about destroying the Left-Liberal hegemonies (which exist in both the US and the UK). It's also about taking back control from the European Union; as well as from the American and British elite.

Basically, the peoples of the UK and US want their countries back.
