Finally- some wonderful news! Hopefully Charles will step aside and allow William to become King. The UK needs a spiritual and political awakening and The Duke and Duchess and their child could be that catalyst.
Probably more than you or I have, #17. William has saved lives as a rescue chopper pilot, and he and Catherine have represented their country well all over the world with graciousness, dignity and warmth. They´ve been known to fly scheduled airlines in coach class en route to their royal duties, and take their role seriously. That´s more than I can say for the President of the United States or his wife or his many minions.
soooo... according to #18 he flies as a rescue chopper pilot and when they travel they fly coach, even though they could go first class. and this is what makes them important? i think there are a lot of people in the world who have accomplished MUCH more than this.....
Naysayers, get over it - this is a fine and decent couple with a heck of a reponsibility. Please keep your nasty comments to yourselves. How much better would you sound if you wished for her to recover quickly from the horrible nausea. Life in the goldfish bowl of the paparazzi is not fun. A beloved lady who will never know her grandchild to be lost her life in this goldfish bowl. The Cambriges are doing their job just as you presumably do [or did]. Are you jealous? or what?
OP, I´m really sorry about posting a similar Mail article further up the page. It wasn´t the different header, it was the reporters--two on the one I posted. This earlier one had only "staff" (because the news hadn´t been expanded and photos added, I expect), so it didn´t show up when I searched.
On the first day of its release, Mark Levin´s The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic reached the #1 spot in sales on Amazon.com--not just for political books, but all books. Levin appeared on Hannity on the Fox News Channel on Monday evening to discuss the book, and his proposals to restore the Framers´ vision for limited government through an Article V convention that would propose eleven new constitutional amendments to restrain the runaway power of the federal government. "I´m simply saying, I think it´s time, if Americans want to remain free, to start reacquainting ourselves with the Constitution, and
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- The unemployed Army veteran who stunned the political world by winning the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in South Carolina in 2010 has been arrested on a trespassing charge in Myrtle Beach. Police said 35-year-old Alvin Greene was arrested Friday at an apartment complex. A report says he was walking around disoriented and asked for paramedics. They checked on Greene, who then was taken into custody. Greene remained at the Horry County jail Monday afternoon, held on a $282 bond. No one answered the phone at his Manning home and his brother did not return a message.
There is no more denying the fact that Hollywood has a friend in the White House. But it may not be who we originally thought. No it’s not the president, but instead it is First Lady Michelle Obama. There are several instances of the Obamas palling around with the Hollywood elite, but now we see Mrs. Obama trying to get into that world! Michelle Obama is releasing a rap album. According to POLITICO: Michelle Obama is teaming up with some big names in hip hop to help release a Let’s Move! themed album next month. Entitled “Songs for a Healthier America,” the record
When asked about their prospects for 2014, most Republicans will say that whatever happens with the Senate, the GOP is a virtual lock to keep control of the House. The House majority is the GOP´s single hold on power in Washington, and the only way the party has been able to shape national policy during Barack Obama´s presidency. Republicans haven´t worried about losing the House because, first, having won by a landslide in 2010, they got to control the redistricting process, and they have used that power to draw districts that give them an advantage. Second, Barack Obama, having won re-election,
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday that she will soon tour the nation and deliver a series of speeches to promote more trust in government. She made her remarks at an annual American Bar Association meeting in San Francisco. More specifically, Mrs. Clinton said she was launching a series of speeches on foreign policy. And as part of those addresses, she planned to speak about the need to restore faith in government, Breitbart reported. She also bashed voter identification laws, telling 1,000 members of the
President Obama often rails against “perpetual campaigns” in politics, but the White House is increasingly waging a partisan-edged campaign funded by taxpayers through a flood of daily emails to the public in support of his agenda. Whether the topic is gun control or immigration reform, the White House is using taxpayer dollars for staff and equipment to promote Mr. Obama’s image and frequently to target his opponents in Congress for scorn through a series of e-newsletters. “The president thinks Washington has largely taken its eye off the ball on the most important issue facing the country,” senior presidential adviser Dan Pfeiffer wrote
Remember when President Barack Obama accused Washington of getting distracted and taking its “eye off the ball” of the economy? Well, he and/or his Twitter team are taking their eye off the ball of the economy. Obama or whoever is writing his official Twitter feed is becoming that guy. Barack Obama ? @BarackObama Gravity exists. The Earth is round. Climate change is happening. #ScienceSaysSo 2:37 PM - 12 Aug 2013 Rebadging “global warming” to “climate change” is one of the greatest political switcheroos of all time. The fact is, the climate is not static and is always changing. The rocks cry out to
Attorney General Eric Holder has just announced an end-run around Congress and given the far left one of its priority action-items, announcing he will not prosecute drug crimes unconnected to gangs or violence. Ironically, he invoked the conservative principle of federalism to do it. Congress has enacted stiff penalties for various drug crimes, carrying mandatory minimum sentences. According to a leaked copy of his speech today at the American Bar Association (which is a solidly-liberal lawyers’ organization, not any sort of official body for the legal profession), Holder will announce that he is instructing his 94 U.S. attorneys across the
On Monday, Hillary Clinton botched the name of civil and voting rights icon Medgar Evers while addressing a group of lawyers in San Francisco in a speech about voting rights. In a speech that denounced Voter ID efforts, Clinton referred to Medgar Evers as "Medger Evans" while discussing how one of her mentors defused a volatile situation in Mississippi after Evers, who courageously organized voter registration efforts in the South, was assassinated. After praising her mentor, John Doar, who was a civil rights attorney in John F. Kennedy´s administration, Clinton said this, according to a Weekly
Conservative radio host Mark Levin sat down with Sean Hannity tonight to share what he believes is the right course for the country to fight back against President Obama and the Democrats. Levin detailed what he described as a little-known second way to add amendments to the Constitution without having to go through Congress. Levin believes the U.S. is currently in a “post-constitutional period,” slamming a Supreme Court that’s basically run by one swing vote and a president “brazenly rewriting laws” and threatening to go around Congress. He explained that new amendments to the Constitution could be added by having two-thirds
On Morning Joe Tuesday morning, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and former New York Governor George Pataki battled over the effectiveness and equality of the Stop and Frisk policy, which was declared unconstitutional by a federal judge Monday afternoon. Both men tried to make their take on the law the populist version, with Pataki arguing that the judge’s decision means “some Wall Street lawyer” will have discretion over on-the-street crime decisions, and Robinson countering that stopping and frisking Wall Street lawyers might lead to a higher arrest rate. “What this judge is saying she’s going to have some Wall Street lawyer, who
WASHINGTON — In another setback for President Obama’s health care initiative, the administration has delayed until 2015 a significant consumer protection in the law that limits how much people may have to spend on their own health care. The limit on out-of-pocket costs, including deductibles and co-payments, was not supposed to exceed $6,350 for an individual and $12,700 for a family. But under a little-noticed ruling, federal officials have granted a one-year grace period to some insurers, allowing them to set higher limits, or no limit at all on some costs, in 2014. The grace period has been outlined on
The sales assistant who refused to show U.S. talkshow billionaire Oprah Winfrey a luxury handbag costing nearly £25,000 claims the superstar lied about what happened in the luxury Swiss boutique where she works. Speaking anonymously to Sunday newspaper SonntagsBlick, the Italian bag lady said she felt ´powerless´ and in the grip of a ´cyclone´ after Winfrey went on TV in America to claim she had been the victim of racism. Winfrey was in Switzerland in July when she walked into the Trois Pommes boutique in Zurich looking for a handbag to match the outfit she was going to
In a story that has remained largely under the mainstream media radar, Congress announced late last month that it would finally investigate the Aug. 6, 2011 helicopter crash in Afghanistan that resulted in 38 deaths, including 22 members of SEAL Team 6, made famous three months earlier when they killed Osama Bin Laden. Grieving family members insist that soldiers in the elite unit were placed in unnecessary danger by the recklessness of the Obama administration, whose actions they characterized as criminal. “We’re going to dive into this,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT),
Appearing on This Week With George Stephanopoulos, Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert battled not only the Democratic panelists but also conservative pundit George Will over the wisdom of shutting down the government to prevent Obamacare funding. Gohmert strongly condemned President Barack Obama’s argument at Friday’s news conference that the GOP’s “holy grail” was enying millions of people health insurance. “That’s a false narrative,” Gohmert said. “He says we’re trying to keep people from having health care. That’s just not true. That is an absolute, blatant lie. We’re not trying to keep anybody from getting health care.
LOS ANGELES -- Oprah Winfrey says she's "sorry" a media frenzy emerged after saying she experienced racism during a trip to Switzerland."I think that incident in Switzerland was just an incident in Switzerland. I'm really sorry that it got blown up. I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I'm sorry that I said it was Switzerland," Winfrey said "I was just referencing it as an example of being in a place where people don't expect that you would be able to be there," she continued.In recent interview with "Entertainment Tonight," Winfrey recalled a clerk at an upscale Zurich boutique refusing to show her a handbag. Winfrey said she was told she could not afford the $38,000 purse. Staff has added more text.
The taxpayer-supported Missouri State Fair is getting a lot of negative publicity in social media Sunday following a report of a shameful stunt that occurred Saturday night in Sedalia. (Snip) Basically, a clown wearing a mask of Obama came out during the bull riding event. The crowd was asked if it wanted to see Obama “run down by a bull. Things got worse from there." Things got worse from there, which doesn’t surprise me, given the anti-Obama feeling among many fairgoers from rural Missouri, where Obama lost to Mitt Romney (at least 60-40 percent in much of outlying parts of state)
President Obama took his case for ending the sequester to hundreds of disabled veterans Saturday, saying he protected their benefits from the “reckless” cuts to the federal budget but suggesting next year might be different. “It’s hurting our military. I made it clear that your veteran’s benefits are exempt from this year’s sequester,” the president said to the applause of hundreds at the Disabled American Veterans´ convention in Orlando, Fla. “But I want to tell you going forward the best way to protect the VA care you have earned is to get rid of this sequester altogether.”
Rooms have to be found for dozens of Secret Service agents, someone has to carry a selection of presidential basketballs, and of course the family dog needs his own state-of-the-art aircraft. Arriving in the idyllic coastal retreat of Martha´s Vineyard in Massachusetts, Mr Obama left behind him in Washington DC high profile debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care reforms. Instead, he will spend the next eight days playing golf, going to the beach, and buying books from the Bunch of Grapes bookstore.
On August 12, Joe DiGenova, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, told Washington D.C.´s WMAL that one of the reasons people have remained tight-lipped about Benghazi is because 400 U.S. missiles were "diverted to Libya" and ended up being stolen and falling into "the hands of some very ugly people." DiGenova represents Benghazi whistleblower Mark Thompson. He told WMAL that he "does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles."
MANY American newspapers were doomed to decline from the moment the Internet arrived on personal computers. But The Washington Post, just sold off unexpectedly to Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, was never really one of them. This is something the sentimental send-offs for the Graham family and its stewardship tended to ignore. As disruptive as the Internet has been for journalism, The Post was uniquely positioned to succeed amid the chaos.
On Monday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the American Bar Association annual meeting in San Francisco that she would be launching a series of speeches about American foreign policy in the “next few months.” According to Philip Rucker, White House correspondent for The Washington Post, Hillary planned to emphasize restoring faith in government – an ironic theme, considering that she was a member of the current administration presiding over the rapid decline in faith in government. The speech today was clearly a launching point for a 2016 campaign. She put heavy emphasis on bashing voter
IRS? A system of voluntary tax compliance cannot survive a dishonest IRS. Lois Lerner and company have virtually ruined the agency. For the foreseeable future, each time an American receives a tax query, he will wonder to what degree his politics ensures enhanced or reduced scrutiny — or whether his name as a donor, activist, or partisan has put him on a watch list. Worse still, when a high commissioner of the IRS takes the 5th Amendment, it sends a frightening message: those audited go to jail when they refuse to testify; those who audit them who do the same
The U.S. Air Force said that a well-known drag queen group was invited to perform on base during a “Diversity Day” celebration because drag is a “symbol of gay pride and unity. But the performance sparked outrage among some airmen who called the drag show “totally offensive and inappropriate.” Jewels and the Brunchettes performed to a small crowd at the Los Angeles Air Force Base on Aug. 8, the military confirmed. The Air Force said in a statement to Fox News that “Diversity Day” featured eight cultural groups and was meant to “foster equality and diversity in the workplace.”
