Ex-Prime Minister
Baroness Thatcher dies

BBC [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/8/2013 8:05:55 AM

Lord Bell said: "It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning." Baroness Thatcher was Conservative prime minister from 1979 to 1990. She was the first woman to hold the post. Her family is expected to make a further statement later. Baroness Thatcher, born Margaret Roberts, became the Conservative MP for Finchley, north London in 1959, retiring from the Commons in 1992. Having been education secretary, she successfully challenged former prime minister Edward Heath for her party´s leadership in 1975.

Comments:
We are losing all the good, honorable people who have served us so well. RIP Baroness Thatcher.

RIP. Sadly, the trade unionist jackals who fought her at every turn are now in seats of power. Some people refuse to learn their lessons permanently.

I´m sorry to hear she has passed away. She was a towering figure of the 20th century will be fondly remembered for 1,000 years. Rest in peace.

This is a tremendous loss. Her failing health was known, but the biggest loss was her diminished mental faculties in recent years. She could have added so much.

Now she joins Ronnie and let´s pray they will be watching over us as the free world falls to pieces.

Some of the comments from British news sources are blood-curdling. Commies and lay-abouts still hate Ladt Thatcher. She was principled, stood her ground, and gave no quarter in the queationing sessions we watched on bbc from house of commons.... Seeing her rip into a liberal was a thing of beauty...she did it with facts, not personal attacks. Wish she could have interrogated Hilly Hag over Benghazi. Lady Thatcher would have gotten the answers out of the Hag. Instead, we are threatened w possibility of having the wretched H Hag rule over us and preside over the final dismantling of the USA. Lady Thatcher, rest in peace and pray for the land of your friend, Ron Reagan. What a lady!

Dittos, #7. Thatcher and others like her were transformed by WWII. This generation understood the need to fight for liberty, and they abhorred appeasement.

Her career was long enough for me to go from young liberal who could not stand her to a mugged-by-reality fiscal conservative/small-government-with-strong-military advocate who could not be more grateful for what she did not only for her country but for the world.

Baroness Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II - what an unbelievable combination of people who together had synergies that fundamentally changed the world for the better during an era of peace.

She´s the last of the three; I find myself tearing up. A 57-year-old man probably shouldn´t do that but for this I´m happy to make an exception without shame or embarrassment. Thank you Baroness!

The standard set by Thatcher makes almost every PM since her seem like such a mealy-mouthed politician. (Of course they actually have been mealy-mouthed politicians; but compared to her their insufficiency in leadership has been even more starkly apparent.)

Rest in peace, great lady.

We´ve lost another of the greats who had no quarter or excuse for the greatest evil ever known to man, communism.

The world was blessed to have three wise, good and resolute people such as Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II, and Ronald Reagan who did not believe in co-existing with evile, but in confronting evil and working to bring about its downfall, sparking the most widespread liberation of men and women from communist totalitarianism.

Now that they are all gone, we are once more confronted with those who believe they know is what is better for you, who will compel you to give in to their beliefs of whats right, who will use force of arms to disarm free men and women.

If we fail this test, the world will be plunged into a darkness that will make the 85 years of communist oppression merely look like a dress rehearsal for a new Dark Age.

God bless Margaret Thatcher. May she rest in peace.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
