Fire Juncker, or we leave NATO

So, the head of the European Union -- Jean-Claude Juncker -- has threatened to destroy the United States because we elected Donald Trump president.


If the EU insists on keeping this Luxembourgish loon as its commission president, then let us leave NATO and let Europe pay for the cost of defending Europe.


EUROPEAN Union boss Jean-Claude Juncker this afternoon issued a jaw-dropping threat to the United States, saying he could campaign to break up the country in revenge for Donald Trump’s supportive comments about Brexit.
In an extraordinary speech the EU Commission president said he would push for Ohio and Texas to split from the rest of America if the Republican president does not change his tune and become more supportive of the EU. 
The remarks are diplomatic dynamite at a time when relations between Washington and Brussels are already strained over Europe’s meagre contributions to NATO and the US leader’s open preference for dealing with national governments. 
They are by far the most outspoken intervention any senior EU figure has made about Mr Trump and are likely to dismay some European leaders who were hoping to seek a policy of rapprochement with their most important ally. 
Speaking at the centre-right European People Party’s annual conference in Malta this afternoon, the EU Commission boss did not hold back in his disdain for the White House chief’s eurosceptic views. 
His actual quote was:
“Brexit isn’t the end. A lot of people would like it that way, even people on another continent where the newly elected US President was happy that the Brexit was taking place and has asked other countries to do the same. If he goes on like that I am going to promote the independence of Ohio and Austin, Texas in the US.” 
Ha. I would like to see this mouse who roars just try that.

The United States actually campaigned against Brexit as stupid Obama made the same stupid threats that the stupid European Union did if Britain voted to leave.

Under the EU's own rules, Britain can Brexit. Our Constitution does not allow that.

Any trade war or attempt on our sovereignty begins with a military pullout from Europe.

We have been there since June 6, 1944, what do we get out of it now?

I mean besides the resentment from the children of the very people we saved.

Juncker crossed a line.

Our policy should be if he stays, we go.

It is that simple.

  1. I could see Austin Tx (favorite motto: "Keep Austin Weird") voting to leave the union, but Ohio? If Juncker is really serious why not mention California?

    1. We University of Michigan fans wouldn't mind seeing Ohio go (and The Ohio State University along with it). The wind blows out of the North in Michigan because Ohio sucks.

    2. NY and CA would be waaaaaaaaay more likely candidates.

  2. How do you deal with a yapping Chihuahua that just wont shut up? Roll up a newspaper and swat it. That sounds like an appropriate response for Herr Juncker. - Elric

  4. The mouse that roared. Exactly what I was thinking as I read this. The more he yaps, the more support President Trump will get. I think that Chuckie S. should invite him over.

  5. I've been to Luxembourg. It's a pissant country with rude, pissant people. By far the least memorable vacation I had when I was stationed over there. It's like a combination of German superiority complex, French arrogance, and Belgian indifference. A horrible salad. Let's cash our chips and walk away from this rigged, corrupt poker game.

  6. Calm down everyone. That was just Juncker's droll imitation of a tweet by Trump, a bit of mockery that's over the top considering the seriousness of the growing cracks in the NATO alliance, but not to be taken tooooo seriously.

  8. Juncker was just throwing a deflected hissy fit because Theresa May handed him a 6 page resignation letter full of demands on Brexit. It's the first exit, it is loss of a large source of funds for EU, and it is on his watch. People don't kick the cat when they are angry anymore, they kick Pres Donald Trump.

    1. They missed the fact that he's very likely to kick back twice as hard, and twice as much.

  9. I remember Kim du Toit once saying that he just loved Belgium, and would love to live there; oddly, that's one country I visited that I never, ever want to return to. Cold, arrogant people who seemed to think they were better than anyone, and who didn't bother with courtesy or good manners if you weren't one of them.

    So Juncker can go to hell for all I care; but how do you "fire" someone who was never elected? That's part of why Brexit is so satisfying, they never voted these jerks into office, and removing them doesn't seem to be possible!

    1. Esky, did you know Kim's back on-line?

    2. Yes I did, Sam- though I'm sad for Kim, the reason he's back is that his beloved wife passed away. I meant to put a link in to his new site, but forgot, so here it is:

  10. Time for Trump to go Clark Griswold on the face-slapper.

  11. I had no idea whose name that is and had to go look it up.

    How sad is that?

  12. Juncker was probably just drunk. He often is:

    --Video footage has emerged which appears to show the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, 'drunk' at an EU summit.

    In the clip, which has just surfaced online, Juncker can be seen repeatedly slapping EU leaders, hopping from foot to foot and dancing - leaving many to question whether he was under the influence of alcohol.

    He was also heard calling the Hungarian Prime Minister 'dictator' in front of those present at the EU-Eastern Partnership summit.--

  14. This guy is from Luxembourg. Here's the deal. The entire population of Luxembourg is about 500,000 people, roughly the size of Long Beach, a suburb of Los Angeles. Consequently, I am constrained to apply the "Tyson Rule" made famous when Neil deGrasse Tyson demoted Pluto from a planet to a planetoid. Sorry, Skippy, you are hereby demoted from a 'country' to a 'countriod'. You can no longer hang out with the big boys. Go to your room and keep your mouth shut before you get it slapped shut.

  15. If Texas decides to become an independent nation again, it won’t be because we need – or even ask – permission from the likes of Herr Junker. It will be because Texas decides to.
