  • Anti Feminist Phyllis Schlafly Knew That Most Women Need Our Protection As Mothers

    09/04/2023 11:08:28 PM PDT · by Ozguy1945 · 20 replies ^ | 5th September, 2023 - St Louis, Missouri, time | Ozguy1945
    As a man who has found himself before the courts three times because something I did made an insecure woman uncomfortable, I have learnt that modern feminism is an evil misandrist force which threatens the survival of the social order in The West. I congratulate activist attorney Phyllis Schlafly, who died 7 years ago on the 5th of September 2016, for being a great anti-feminist. I believe that one of Schlafly’s great human intellectual achievements is to clearly articulate how important motherhood is to so many women. Feminist persecution of men will stop if voices like that of Phyllis Schlafly...

    The first use of this phrase happened on May 4, 1979, one day after Margaret Thatcher was elected as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Her political party placed an advertisement in the newspaper that included the phrase "May the Fourth Be With You.

    Rishi Sunak happens to be Hindu by faith, but this fact is unlikely to make him pro-India With Rishi Sunak becoming the third Prime Minister in two months, there are great expectations from him, especially because he has experience, as a former finance minister, to tackle the economic crisis that Britain faces. Just like his immediate predecessor, Liz Truss, he is a Thatcherite. “My values are Thatcherite. I believe in hard work, family and integrity. I am a Thatcherite, I am running as a Thatcherite and I will govern as a Thatcherite,” he wrote in a newspaper. But there is...

    A newly erected statue of former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has been vandalised again, not even a month after it was first put up. Having been standing for less than a month in the English town of Grantham, the statue of the former Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has once again been vandalised.

    A plurality of Britons would have preferred former Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to have handled the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, a poll found. YouGov asked 5,511 adults in Great Britain in a poll published on Wednesday: “Regardless of how you view them otherwise, if you had to choose one British Prime Minister from the last forty years to have handled the Covid-19 outbreak, who would it have been?”

    Teddy Roosevelt, Richard Nixon and Margaret Thatcher were outstanding environmentalists. But they made great steps forward for conservation without abandoning the essential human need for freedom. Freedom wedded to good government works. Any sort of PC tyranny will always self destruct.

    Last night the US Electoral College formally elected Joe Biden as President Elect. One passage of his acceptance speech made Guido’s ears prick up. In 1987, Joe Biden dropped out of the Presidential primaries after a plagiarism scandal following a speech where he lifted the words of Neil Kinnock. Last night instead he copied Kinnock’s nemesis – Margaret Thatcher by quoting the words of St Francis of Assisi. Thatcher famously quoted the same passage upon the morning of her election. Now Biden is doing the same upon his. Video...

    MOORS murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley were the subject of of tense discussions as Downing Street debated the merits of releasing them from prison, unearthed files reveal.The Home Office proposals were put to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 1985 only for her to pour cold water on them. Hindley could have been out for her final seven years while Brady could have been free for 12 years. Previously classified files from Cabinet meetings – released in 2017 by the National Archives – show that Home Secretary Leon Brittan suggested Hindley could go free after 30 years while Brady could...

Breitbart News, April 2, 2017, published in an article "423 New Mosques, 500 Closed Churches in London," quoting The Gatestone Institute report: "London is more Islamic than many Muslim countries put together ... British multi-culturalists are feeding Islamic fundamentalism ... Londonistan, with its new 423 mosques, is built on the sad ruins of English Christianity ... Given the current trends, Christianity in England is becoming a relic, while Islam will be the religion of the future." The London Daily Express,...

    Margaret Thatcher was the daughter of a greengrocer who rose to become Britain’s first female prime minister, won three national elections, oversaw an economic revolution at home, and faced down the U.S.S.R. -- earning her the moniker “The Iron Lady” from the Soviets. She didn’t, however, meet the mark for Hillary Clinton’s book on gutsy women. The former secretary of state, who failed in her 2016 bid to become America's first female president, is out with a new book, “The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.”

    As Britain’s relations with the European Union finally come to a climax, the United States can be grateful, once again, that contrary to the preferred outcome of most makers of American foreign policy, the U.S. national interest will be well served, by a lucky bounce. The United Kingdom is the fifth-largest economy in the world, and probably the fourth or fifth military power, and because of its immense contribution to Western civilization, it is one of the world’s most respected nationalities. Instead of being subsumed into the polyglot, bureaucratically mismanaged and socialistic Babel of the European Union, Britain is about...

    The 'special relationship' between the UK and the US is elusive. Trump's visit to Britain nailed the optics of an empire that was wilting under the weight of an 'unequal' relation Romance and nostalgia surrounding the grandeur of the British empire in the 19th and 20th century is predicated on "the empire on which the sun never sets." This pomposity was extended to include emerging America in the mid-19th century to posit the Anglophone domain, as noted by Alexander Campbell in 1852, "To Britain and America, god has granted the possession of the new world; and because the sun never...

    The early days of May bring not only the second birthday of The Mark Steyn Club but an even more significant anniversary: It is forty years this weekend since Mrs Thatcher was driven to Buckingham Palace to become Britain's Prime Minister. The election was held on May 3rd 1979, and the following morning, on May 4th, the Thatchers took possession of 10 Downing Street. (None of this three-month US-style transition period that enabled the outgoing Obama Administration to screw over the incoming Trump team and get the phony-baloney "Russia investigation" all set up.) Raised in a flat above her father's...
  • 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.

    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.

    If you believe some of the things said and written about my views on Europe, it must seem rather like inviting Genghis Khan to speak on the virtues of peaceful coexistence! I want to start by disposing of some myths about my country, Britain, and its relationship with Europe and to do that, I must say something about the identity of Europe itself. Europe is not the creation of the Treaty of Rome. Nor is the European idea the property of any group or institution. We British are as much heirs to the legacy of European culture as any other...

    We have lost our culture to the Cultural Marxists and, increasingly, our liberty to the Rogue Ruling Class™. It is easy to despair. But, in the late 1970s, it was also hard to believe we could defeat Soviet Communism. Then three courageous people—Pope John Paul II, Margaret Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan—changed the world. Reflecting on that, Robert Reilly describes what we must do today to win our war: Language, then, and the restoration of its relationship with reality were critical to the Communist collapse. This was no small feat since, for many in the West, words had lost their meaning....
