No No, Nexit

Looks like it will be up to France and Frexit to drive home the point about the EU on death watch.

Early returns on the vote in The Netherlands has the vote leaning to not much change:

The Hague, Netherlands (CNN)

Conservative Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has staved off a challenge from his far-right rival in an election widely seen as an indicator of populist sentiment in Europe, preliminary results indicated Wednesday.

The anti-immigrant firebrand Geert Wilders, who had promised to “de-Islamise” the Netherlands, was on course for a poorer than expected performance.

With more than half the votes counted, preliminary results showed Wilders tied for second place with two other parties, the mainstream Christian Democratic Appeal and D66. Rutte’s VVD party is projected to win 32 seats out of a total of 150.

The left-wing environmentalist GroenLinks (Green Left) party also appears likely to make big gains, while the PVDA (Labour) party, Rutte’s outgoing partners in a coalition, were on course for a historic defeat.

Turnout was 81%, a NOS exit poll said, the highest for three decades.

Looks like too big a margin to beat via any kind of last minute shift in the trend.

I’ll be up a while waiting to see if more solid results come in.

Expect rampant Crowing on CNN, MSNBC, etc. etc.

    Holland seemed the least likely to go rogue. They are the ones that legitimized bestiality. Kind of the California of Europe. But I guess the left has to have its minor victories.

    He may have lost, but he still sent a shock wave through the “Establishment”.
    They know that thery have a lot of dis-affected voters, they will have to temper their multi culturism a bit.

    Winning every battle is usually not the path to winning the war.

  4. Maggie Bart says:

    Up 3% integ vote and 5 seats.

    Rutte down by 3 seats and 8%

  5. E.M.Smith says:

    I think the key bit is the nearly 1/3 cut in the seats of the “winner” and the rise to 2nd place of the “loser”. That trend will continue as the country decays, so only a matter of time and deaths.

    The only issue is World Power & Nuclear Secrets, and national boundaries are not the battlefront.

    1. In 1922, Francis William Aston reported powers beyond the dreams of scientific fiction in cores of ordinary atoms.

    2. During WWII, the Allied nations and Japan independently discovered those powers beyond the dreams of scientific fiction in atoms of heavy elements (Th, U and Pu) and developed the energy into weapons of mass destruction – atomic bombs.

    3. In Aug 1945, Stalin declared war on Japan as WWII was ending. Stalin’s troops captured Japan’s atomic bomb production plant at Konan, Korea, and Stalin then had control of the world’s remaining inventory of atomic bombs.

    4. An American B-29 bomber flew over Konan, Korea, was shot down and the crew captured and held for negotiations in Aug-Sept 1945.

    5. On 24 Oct 1945, nations and national academies of sciences were united under the UN, to “save the world from nuclear annihilation by hiding the source of energy in atomic bombs.

    The rest of this story is told in world history and the fictional postmodern scientific models of reality.

    6. Despite Trump’s election, the US NAS still seeks to hide reality from the public:

    CONCLUSION: Leaders of both sides in the real world conflict live in fear of the HIGHER POWER that controls the universe.

    You have got it right E.M, they need more time. Just to provide the right picture:

    1. Any claim that a win of Wilders party would enable a NEXIT was pure propaganda from the opposition.
    Fact is that Wilders Freedom Party achieved relative big gains and is now the second biggest party in the Netherlands and that is a phenominal election result.
    Anybody who tells you that the VVD won this election has it wrong. They have lost a considrable number of seats but not as much as their Socialist Partner the Labor Party which was practically destroyed (no tears from me about that). Obviously the establishment is in desperate need of a win to polish up their lost trust hence all the eufory for the VVD results. They did not loose but they did not stop Wilders.

    But Wilders is not the only anti establishment party that scored seats.
    2. We now have 2 anti Islam, anti Euro and anti EU parties in the parliament holding a total of 22 seats if no changes take place on Tuesday when the final results come in.
    The second party, The Forum for Democracy is a newcomer build around a well thinking and very clever writer and publisher, Thierry Baudet who also was one of the initiators the Ukrain Referendum that should have stopped all cooperation with Ukrain because the country is too corrupt and insignificant to risk any Russian confrontation over it.
    The Referendum was won but the results, as usual, ignored and that is what lifted this new party into existence. They are called the brains that the Wilders Party lacks but I am sure theys will cooperate and support each other.
    Any fast growth of a political party comes with tremendous risks simply because it is impossible to find the right people to take the seats in parliament and keep out the gold diggers and infilTRAITORS who are out to break up such a party from within.
    All they need is time and some kind of natural, organic growth, just like any healthy business or organization.

    This is also the problem of the Five Star Party in Italy.

    In France, the party of Le Pen is much more developed with a broader support and an army of active supporters. A win of Le Pen will mean the end of the EU and the euro. With 6 out of 10 French people who no longer feel safe in their own country she has the best cards for a Presidency. It will be a hard fight still with zero guarantees for a win.

    I think the Trump Effect will help push matters in the right direction.
