    The latest installment of the Netflix chronicle of the royals seeks to slime Margaret Thatcher, but the Charles-Diana soap opera undermines the series’ political slant.Since its debut in 2016, fans of the Netflix series “The Crown” have been looking forward to when this depiction of the life of Queen Elizabeth II would take the story of the royal family and British politics into the 1980s. For Americans who love the show because it satisfies their yen for celebrity gossip with a gloss of politics and social commentary, the arrival of Princess Diana as a major character was highly anticipated.Much of...

    Neil Heywood mystery: Gilded lifestyle of murder suspect's son Bo Guagua New pictures have cast a fascinating light on the privileged lifestyle and influential circle of friends surrounding the son of ousted Chinese Communist party leader Bo Xilai. By Patrick Sawer, Josie Ensor and Richard Eden 9:00PM BST 14 Apr 2012 A prime seat at the Beijing Olympics, nights out with Oxford friends, and a mentor at the heart of the British establishment – this is the gilded lifestyle of the son of the ousted Chinese Communist party leader linked to the death of a British businessman. These pictures shine...

    While the city of Washington, D.C. has openly promoted tearing down statues of America’s Founding Fathers, Hillsdale College’s Liberty Walk stands in distinct contrast. Hillsdale College, a small liberal arts college in southern Michigan, hosts an increasing array of original statues honoring men and women who have stood courageously for freedom.Walking Hillsdale College’s Liberty Walk, one sees statues erected to founders such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson as well as others who have fought for liberty and equality such as Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Ronald Reagan, and Winston Churchill. Hillsdale also has the only statue in North America of...

    In my recent trip to Europe, I was forced to see American politics through a limited progressive lens. Having only one “American” channel, CNN International, I wonder how any European could appreciate what President Donald Trump has done except to deserve impeachment.Europe was preoccupied with the UK’s Brexit quandary—how an equally divided country can find a way through the referendum’s choice to leave the EU. Any news of America was preoccupied with Trump’s impeachment.CNN seems sure of Trump’s well-deserved demise. Their glee over his perceived imminent impeachment and resulting election defeat is hard to hide. But like their early predictions...
  • The Totally, Utterly Irrefutable Case Against Socialism

    The Daily Signal ^ | July 11, 2019 | Lee Edwards
    When a dozen of conservatism’s best minds take on Socialism and expose it for the utopian fraud it is, attention must be paid. In a brief foreword to a special issue of National Review, Editor-in-Chief Richard Lowry admitted that many conservatives thought socialism in America had been “vanquished” after the collapse of Soviet Communism 30 years ago. But as T. S. Eliot insisted, “There is no such thing as a Lost Cause because there is no such thing as a Gained Cause.” The experts examine socialism in its many guises, beginning with Charles Cooke’s blunt assessment that socialism is not...
  • Biden says ‘Margaret Thatcher’ Called Him To Complain About Trump

    Biden told a small group of donors in Columbia, South Carolina on Saturday that “14 heads of state” have contacted him, and “voiced concerns about Trump.” That list included Margaret Thatcher, he said Thatcher left office in 1990 and died in 2013. The mistake by Biden, 76, comes amid worries about his age after he slurred his words during his campaign announcement speech. Aides have shielded him from reporters.

    Joe Biden flubbed the name of British Prime Minister Theresa May at a fundraiser Saturday night, calling her by former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's name. Thatcher left office in 1990 and died in 2013. The mistake by Biden, 76, comes amid worries about his age after he slurred his words during his campaign announcement speech. Aides have shielded him from reporters. He leads early primary polls by a wide margin but the Democratic Party establishment has yet to swing behind him. “Margaret Thatcher, um, excuse me, Margaret Thatcher — Freudian slip,” Biden said to laughter, according to a campaign pool...

    The real problem, in America, Britain, Canada, Oz, NZ, is not the left, who know what they want and are serious about getting it, but the pansy right. It's easy to mock AOC and Justin and Jacinta Ardern, but all they're doing is sailing full steam ahead for their desired utopia. The right, who profess to disdain the final destination, nevertheless follow along, albeit at a more desultory rate of knots. We see this routinely in their urge to "distance" themselves: In Washington, as I mentioned the other day, House Republicans ostentatiously distanced themselves from their colleague Steve King, because...

    UK Telegraph ^ | Feb 2016 | Charles Moore
    Charles Powell, her most important private secretary, now believes that she would have negotiated a deal quite like David Cameron’s latest, and urged a Remain vote. Norman Tebbit, one of her most senior and like-minded ministers, says the opposite. I shall not break my rule by agreeing or disagreeing with either. But the story of Mrs Thatcher and Europe does reveal something interesting. The whole time she was in office, she never said that Britain should leave. Once she had left office, she said privately – to me and several others – that she thought we should.

    American once touted as possible ambassador to EU tells of being detained at Boston airport and subpoenaed by Robert Mueller’s Trump-Russia inquiry {snip} In a statement sent to the Guardian, Malloch, who described himself as a policy wonk and defender of Trump, said the FBI also asked him about his relationship with Roger Stone, the Republican strategist, and whether he had ever visited the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has resided for nearly six years. In a detailed statement about the experience, which he described as bewildering and intimidating at times, Malloch said the federal...

    Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher famously observed that socialism works until you run out of other people’s money. Identity politics also works until you run out of other people. And then #MeToo becomes #NotMeToo. Other people’s money can be borrowed against. That’s why we have the national debt that we do. But identity politics has multiplied too abruptly and explosively to postpone the reckoning much longer. What were once simple categories of three races and two genders has mutated into an infinite alphabet of sexual identities, a Big Bang of ethnicities, national, cultural, racial and religious, each with its own microaggressions,...
  • Liberal Newsletter rages against Margaret Thatcher

    While in Bangor Maine last week I saw the liberal fruit loops downtown handout fliers and protest  against Trump. They were gathered near the bus terminal at the parking garage, beating drums, chanting F donald Trump and so on,  There was  also a table handing out pamplets and leaflets. They were mostly the same, raging against trump, global warming deniers, capitalism ETC. But one that really caught my attention was a single pamphlet they had about Margaret Thatcher. Some of what I read was pretty crazy and yet not so surprising. Essentially they claimed that Britain was the aggressor in...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Margaret Thatcher once famously said that “the problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” Is that what’s happened to the Democratic party? Morning Joe devoted a navel-gazing segment today to the question of where Dems go from here given their loss of the presidency, their failure to take back either house of congress, and their hemorrhaging of governorships and hundreds of state-legislature seats. There was consensus that Nancy Pelosi and her septuagenarian cohort in the Dem leadership were past their sell-by dates. But the bigger problem that was posed was the lack of a...

    Is Britain's new prime minister, Theresa May, Margaret Thatcher reincarnated? There are similarities. May is certainly as tough as the Iron Lady. As home secretary for longer than any of her predecessors, she has strongly opposed uncontrolled immigration. The Home Office introduced visa restrictions that require non-European Union immigrants living in Britain for fewer than 10 years to minimally earn the equivalent of about $47,000 USD, so as not to be a drain on social welfare programs. With Britain's planned exit from the EU, that policy could be broadened to include all immigrants. In a speech to her Conservative Party...

    With just a week until the EU referendum, the under-fire Tory leader is priced at 5/2 to leave Downing Street before the end of June. William Hill has also cut its odds on George Osborne to cease to be Chancellor by the end of this year – from 7/4 to 5/4. It comes after 65 Tory MPs vowed to vote against Osborne's proposed "emergency Budget" of swingeing cuts in the event of Brexit. Vote Leave campaigner and ex-London mayor Boris Johnson is 5/2 favourite to replace Mr Cameron while Mr Osborne is priced at 9/2. Pro-EU Home Secretary Theresa May...
