The World-Changing Margaret Thatcher
Wall Street Journal, by Paul Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 4/8/2013 8:21:53 PM

Margaret Thatcher had more impact on the world than any woman ruler since Catherine the Great of Russia. Not only did she turn around—decisively—the British economy in the 1980s, she also saw her methods copied in more than 50 countries. "Thatcherism" was the most popular and successful way of running a country in the last quarter of the 20th century and into the 21st. Her origins were humble. Born Oct. 13, 1925, she was the daughter of a grocer in the Lincolnshire town of Grantham. Alfred Roberts was no ordinary shopkeeper.

Thatcher was, like Reagan, a dedicated free enterprise conservative. She applied this to her socialist ruined country and saved it from disaster. The socialists hated her. Sounds good to me!

I hope and pray there is an American Margaret Thatcher out there on the horizon. We are desperately in need of one. Obama has done so much damage to this country, it will take a person with a core built on solid conservative principles, enormous courage and will to set the country on solid footing again.

In re#5, There are several Margaret Thatchers in the U. S., but the fundamental matter is how do we get them into the drivers seat. Remember that she did not have the support of the Old Guard of the Tories any moreeee than Ronald Reagan ever had the support of the Rockefeller wing of the G OP. C

When I look back on the strong confident woman that Margaret Thatcher was and think how she made it to the "top of the greasy pole" (Benjamin Disraeli) and did it all by herself and then look at the current crop of American women politicians....I could cry.

The problem with America is that if a woman doesn´t look "pretty", she´s instantly dismissed as being of no significance. There´s an appearance fascism throughout the country, especially on the Left.

I also think that British women do "camp" much better than American women. When I say camp, I mean a certain pose or expression of one´s face or body that conveys a meaning without the need for words. Thatcher was very good at it.

Very nice (and balanced) piece. One of the differences she made was visible: London went from being a shabby place to a vibrant place, with investment money flowing. When we traveled there during her terms in office the changes were palpable.

Reagan and Thatcher: how we could use them now, during this period of second-rate bureaucrats.

"Some people call it a coincidence -- I think it´s more than that -- that, at the same time in the world, we had Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and Margaret Thatcher. Those three leaders on the world stage -- at the same time -- did more for freedom and liberty for people all over this world than any three people since the founding of this country." -- Rush Limbaugh

We, as well as Britain, have lost one of the greatest people in the world with the passing of Margaret Thatcher.

The photographs of Lady Thatcher and Ronald Reagan together bring a lump to my throat and a kind of furious anger that what they built is being ruined by people of personal greed.

As were so many people, I was in serious financial trouble and (consequently) great fear during the Carter years. President Reagan seemed God-Sent, and, over his terms of office I began to see that Margaret Thatcher made many of Reagan´s accomplishments possible, as he made hers possible as well. The world was sane again. They WERE God-Sent.

We so need them now.

#5, re whether we have any Margaret Thatchers in the U.S...

Phyllis Schlafly comes closest, as far as steely determination and force of intellect go; but yes, she´s elderly to the point of being fragile now.

There was an anecdote told yesterday about Sarah Palin and a missed opportunity to meet Thatcher. The story was, when Palin burst on the national scene in 2008, Thatcher wanted to meet with her.

Thatcher believed Palin had great potential, but wanted to impress upon her the importance of improving her voice and accent (as Thatcher herself had done, decades ago).

The story continued that the Palin/Thatcher meeting never took place -- apparently because Palin didn´t accept the invitation. That´s the claim anyway.

We classical liberal, free market, personal enterprise, non lobbying, anti monarchy capitalists, small, medium, big .. question our alltime hero, Lucianne, referring to the
legendary Margaret Thatcher as a baroness.
Did she ever refer to herself as baroness?
The American Revolution was all about getting rid of royalty, the monarchy, the thieving, warring sickness of it all.
She was always, Margaret Thatcher, please !

Rush said that Thatcher was enamored with our British Founders. According to Limbaugh, who spoke with her numerous times, she especially loved Jefferson. She would have supported the Boston Tea Party had she been there. Obviously she wasn´t a big fan of George III.

Are there real "Leaders" on the Left with a soul, a spine and a sense of decency?
It seems that the answer is ´Probably not...´
The widespread and enthusiastic near orgies of hate being exhibited over the death of Mrs. Thatcher by MANY, MANY---all TOO many--- on the Left, throughout London and the UK and spreading to social media are a warning that a deep-seated evil has become a, if not ´the´, motive force on the Left.
Until and unless such vile, disgusting, base behavior is condemned and repudiated by the ´leaders´ of the Left, decent persons around the globe will have no choice but to look at how the Left is tolerating if not abetting such action...and to quite properly paint the Left as one with those activists.

Great tribute to a great Lady. The closing "credit" at the end: "Mr. Johnson is a historian." reminds us that history indeed repeats itself. Correlate the circumstances in GB in the mid 1970´s, as detailed in the article, with those in the USA today.

Male or female: we desperately need a Margaret Thatcher of our own.

I never read that Thatcher wanted to meet Palin, but do not believe that Sarah refused to meet her. I did read that she wanted to meet Thatcher, and of course the media criticized her for it, implying that it was presumptuous of her. If both stories are true, apparently it just didn´t work out schedule-wise.

Yes, we do have Hillary, to our great chagrin. But, we also have Sarah Palin, who if it were not for the unbelievably unfair and viscous attacks on her (from BOTH sides) - JUST for being a good-looking Conservative woman - would have led us OUT of our national malaise starting from this past January.

And that´s the unvarnished truth.

Ann Coulter takes up ‘Mitt

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/18/2014 7:03:28 PM     Post Reply
Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

He’s been hammered for going around Congress with executive orders. But he’s within his authority—and he should go further on voting and transparency to make government work better. With Congress paralyzed, President Obama has promised to use his “pen and phone” to overcome the ongoing dysfunction and get some work done. And the White House has already acted several times to help improve America’s economy. But such policies, no matter how valuable, will achieve little if we do not fix our broken democracy. Allow me to suggest some ideas for how the president can do just that. First, some historical context. Presidents

Here is a selection of highlights from Friday’s release of documents from the Clinton presidency. The cache is part of a total of about 33,000 pages of presidential records that had been held back from various public records releases because of legal reasons exempting them from disclosure. A Clinton administration memo (page 674) shows a White House that was acutely aware of the first lady’s image problems as officials contemplated how to soften perceptions of Hillary Clinton and how to “build, energize and expand” her natural base. The latest cache of previously withheld Clinton documents includes an

They say it´s the sincerest form of flattery. At a press conference yesterday President Obama asserted that when it comes to ObamaCare, the Republican Party "is going through the stages of grief--anger and denial and all that stuff--and we´re not at acceptance yet." We used the same gag in October, though ObamaCare supporters were the butt of our joke. And we were recycling our own material: We also invoked the Elisabeth Kübler Ross "stages of grief" way back in November 2000 in reference to Al Gore´s refusal to concede his loss to George W. Bush.

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose. We are angry at the disrespect shown to limited-government constitutional conservatives

Hillary Clinton´s upcoming memoir, which is expected to look back at her time as secretary of State, now has a name: Hard Choices. Which is an okay title! She no doubt had to make some tough decisions while at State, and has at least one big decision to make coming up in the next year or so. But the former Cabinet member and possible future presidential candidate may have been better served by a different title—like, say, Tough Decisions. Because Hard Choices has already been used. By another former secretary of State. In 1983, Cyrus Vance, who served as secretary of State

Regardless of how people feel about Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the federal Bureau of Land Management over his cattle’s grazing rights, a lot of Americans were surprised to see TV images of an armed-to-the-teeth paramilitary wing of the BLM deployed around Bundy’s ranch.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
