Baroness Thatcher will be given a war leader´s funeral, with personnel from regiments who fought to free the Falkland Islands carrying her body into St Paul´s Cathedral. More than 700 men and women from the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force will take part next Wednesday, Downing Street has revealed. The Welsh Guards, the regiment who suffered the heaviest losses in the war, will form a guard of honour as her body is taken into the cathedral for the service at 11am. Tensions between Britain and Argentina remain over the Falklands, and President Cristina Kirchner will not be invited to

The Obamas are to be invited, but will either attend? The American left would go mad if they did. One would expect Biden or Kerry as replacement in order to lessen our tribute to Mrs Thatcher.

If Obama does go, I assume that he will wear his tee shirt with the message, The Maldives are Argentine.

MSNBC: Hate Forward
Washington Free Beacon, by David Rutz    Original Article

MSNBC has made no secret of its sincere disdain for conservatives in any form: Republicans, the Tea Party, the Right, for starters. Obviously. These are terribly unserious people, gripped with a “hate” for President Obama, as the above SuperCut shows. MSNBC’s entire primetime lineup is stacked with liberal journalists and pundits, who in turn have on more liberal journalists, pundits, and Democratic lawmakers as their guests more than 90 percent of the time. The subject matter, as anyone who watches MSNBC knows, is nearly always to gleefully and freely shred Republicans. One common point of contention: Daring to oppose the commander

In the minds of progs, global warming is the devil incarnate, responsible for everything bad. So naturally, with the world focused on the mystery of Malaysia 370, it is time to blame global warming. Mother Jones Magazine took a break from blaming free markets (maybe because Malaysia Airlines is government-owned) to blame global warming for the inability to find the debris. Scientists say man-made climate change has fundamentally altered the currents of the vast, deep oceans where investigators are currently scouring for the missing Malaysian Airlines flight, setting a complex stage for the ongoing search for MH370. If the Boeing 777

MICHELLE OBAMA: That´s why it´s so important for information and ideas to flow freely over the internet and through the media, because that´s how we discover the truth. That´s how we learn what´s really happening in our communities in our country and our world. And that´s how we decide which values and ideas we think are best--by questioning and debating them vigorously--by listening to all sides of an argument and by judging for ourselves. My husband and I are on the receiving end of plenty of questioning and criticism from our media and our fellow citizens and its not always easy,

Climate scientists refuse to debate global
warming ‘skeptics’ in the media
Daily Caller, by Michael Bastasch    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/24/2014 10:09:18 AM     Post Reply
Climate scientists and environmentalists are venting their frustrations debating those who are skeptical of man-made global warming — and some have even gone so far as to refuse debating skeptics. Dan Weiss, the director of climate strategy at the liberal Center for American Progress, refused to appear on Fox Business to debate climate skeptic Marc Morano last week. Morano runs the blog Climate Depot, where he reports on environment and climate news. Weiss was set to debate Morano on the show “The Independents” but “refused to debate directly with Morano, and chided [the show] for airing his views,” according to the Fox

Russian politician proposes

A prominent Russian politician has proposed dividing Ukraine along the lines of an infamous Nazi-Soviet pact and suggested that regions in Western Ukraine hold referendums on breaking away from Kiev. In a letter sent to the governments of Poland, Romania and Hungary, Vladimir Zhirinovsky also suggested those countries hold referendums on incorporating the regions into their territory. Zhirinovsky, whose nationalist Liberal Democratic party largely backs President Vladimir Putin in the Russian parliament, sent the letter as Russia annexed the Crimea region of southern Ukraine last week. He is deputy speaker at the Duma and his party holds a minority in the parliament. But

Aborted babies incinerated to heat UK hospitals
Telegraph (U.K.), by Sarah Knapton    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/24/2014 10:00:22 AM     Post Reply
The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found. Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat. Last night the Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr Dan Poulter branded ‘totally unacceptable.’ At least 15,500 foetal remains were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the last two years alone, Channel 4’s Dispatches discovered. The programme, which will air tonight, found that parents who lose

Cost of First Lady´s Beijing Hotel

The White House has been tight-lipped about the cost of First Lady Michelle Obama´s trip to China, but based on the choice for lodging, it could be considerable. Mrs. Obama and her entourage, which numbers seventy according to the Washington Times (including her two daughters and her mother), booked the Westin Chaoyang Hotel close to the U.S. embassy in Beijing for their first stop. According to USA Today, the presidential suite at the hotel is listed as $8,400 per night. But when Vice President Joe Biden visited China in December 2013, he and his team stayed at the St. Regis Hotel

Six-time Obama voter’s group

The woman who admitted to voting for President Barack Obama six times worked for and sat on the board of a group that received an Obama administration Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) grant. Melowese Richardson admitted in 2013 to voting six times for Obama’s re-election while working as a poll worker in Hamilton County, Ohio. Initially convicted on state voter fraud charges and sentenced to five years in prison, Richardson served eight months before the George Soros-funded Ohio Justice and Policy Center helped lessen her sentence to probation. Richardson appeared last week at a rally with some Ohio Democrats and Al Sharpton,

DOJ to Supreme Court: Killing Human
Embryo in Womb is Not Abortion
Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/24/2014 12:26:54 AM     Post Reply
The U.S. Justice Department is telling the Supreme Court that killing a human embryo by preventing the embryo from implanting in his or her mother’s uterus is not an "abortion" and, thus, drugs that kill embryos this way are not "abortion-inducing" drugs. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby. The crux of the administration’s argument in this case is that when Christians form a corporation they give up the right to freely exercise their religion--n.b. live according to their Christian beliefs—in the way they run their business. It is in

Just weeks after publicly claiming that former first lady Hillary Clinton was waging a ´war on women´ by enabling her husband´s philandering ways, the aide who accused the former president of groping her in the White House has penned an article for a far-right-wing blog under the headline ´America Deserves Better Than the Clintons.´ Kathleen Willey was a Democratic fundraiser volunteering in the White House during Bill Clinton´s presidency who claims the former president kissed and groped her inside a private study off of the Oval Office. Now, with a potential presidential run by Hillary Clinton in the works, Willey has resurfaced

DUBAI - A replica of a U.S. aircraft carrier spotted near the coast of Iran is nothing more sinister than a movie set, Iranian media said on Sunday. The New York Times, quoting U.S. intelligence, said last week that the Iranians were building a mock-up of a U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, possibly so they could then blow it up for propaganda purposes. Satellite photos showed what looked like one of the U.S. Navy´s Nimitz-class aircraft carriers, complete with planes, rising from Iran´s Gachin shipyard, near the port of Bandar Abbas. Iranian newspapers said it was "part of the decor" of a movie being

She made the comments in response to a question about studying abroad. (Snip) The first lady responded, "Excellent.

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama. The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson’s lionization by

The American Association for the Advancement of Science came as close as such a respectable institution can to screaming an alarm last week. "As scientists, it is not our role to tell people what they should do," it said as it began one of those sentences that you know will build to a "but". "But human-caused climate risks abrupt, unpredictable and potentially irreversible changes." In other words, the most distinguished scientists from the country with the world´s pre-eminent educational institutions were trying to shake humanity out of its complacency. Why weren´t their warnings leading the news? In one sense, the association´s appeal

President Barack Obama flies Sunday to a Europe shaken by Vladimir Putin’s seizure of Crimea and his threats against eastern parts of Ukraine. At a summit conference at The Hague on preventing nuclear terrorism – scheduled long before the Ukraine crisis – Obama will confer with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders. On Monday afternoon Obama will meet with President Xi Jinping of China, Russia’s neighbor and sometime rival. Putin has forced the United States and Europe to refocus on the origins of the modern transatlantic alliance -- the 1949 NATO defense partnership designed to prevent a

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said

Speaking to supporters of the gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign on Saturday, Biden said it´s "close to barbaric" that in some states, employees can be fired because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. "Imagine 20 years from now as America looked back and say ´How in the hell can that ever been allowed?´ The country´s moved on, the American people have moved on," he said. He said it was
