God save the queen
New York Post, by William McGurn

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/24/2014 5:02:53 AM

When six springs ago Her Britannic Majesty graced the White House with a state visit, your humble columnist, then working in the West Wing, opted to take his youngest child to the arrival ceremony. I told her she’d get to see a real queen. So on that sunny May morning we appeared on the South Lawn with my daughter attired in Peter Pan collar, proper white stockings and beribboned straw hat — looking for all the world as though she’d stepped out of an old BBC newsreel of the queen on a visit to some quaint little Yorkshire village. Alas, the entire

Charles will be about as annoying and blase a king as I could possibly imagine. There´ll be a tree placed in every corner of the palace for him to hug while championing causes that help no one but the One-Worlders. The Queen needs to turn the reins over to William and skip Chuck, who is just clueless.

Lt´s face it. The only job a modern monarch has is to be a glorified PR representative for his country. This is a job QEII does very well. As for Charles.....every time I see him I think of Monty Python´s skit about The Upper Class Twit of the Year.

Charles will be the first monarch to ascend the throne in the TV and internet age. I don´t think it will go well. The public wants Prince William and Kate. They get old poof Charles and his polo pony.

The fact that she is turning over some responsibilities to Chuckey does not mean the Queen will retire and pass The Crown to him and his goofy wife. Queen Elizabeth´s mother live to a lucid and ripe old age, sharp to the end. Let´s hope Her Majesty enjoys the same long life and keeps Chuck busy with flim-flam so he and his Moose will keep their traps shut until William grows in dignity.

Queen Elizabeth is an amazing woman who was thrust on the world stage at an fairly young age. QE has always held herself up to the very highest standards. I pray she lives at least as long as her mom and remains healthy, active and vibrant to her final days.

If I´m not mistaken, Queen Elizabeth has only visited the U.S. when Republicans have been in the White House.
Smart lady. Good queen.
And I agree with the poster who called Charles a twit. That he is.

#6, a quick check of a Wikipedia list of visits by Queen Elizabeth confirms that you are correct. She has never visited during a democrat malignancy.

1. The Queen has made it very clear that she will not abdicate.

2. The Queen has made it very clear Charles will succeed her, in accordance with the line of succession.

Harry, you recall, is known as "the spare." He´s recently given up flying Apaches so there will BE a spare if anything happens to William and/or baby George after Charles shuffles off this mortal coil.

If you look at the line of succession at Wikipedia, you´ll see what happens if Harry is killed in a flying accident and William loses his life somehow. Perhaps Catherine would become Regent of George but it could also be Charles´s brother, Andrew. It could get very mucky. Andrew is still steaming because the Queen cancelled royal-paid security for his daughters--as photo after photo of the girls in drunk mode at three and four in the morning regularly made it onto the pages of the Daily Mail.

There´s a lot more but it can be very tedious. Just trust that the Queen knows exactly what she´s doing and her chief goal is to preserve the monarchy. With William, Harry and George leading exemplary lives and becoming more and more popular, I think Britons will endure the irritatingly pompous and unfunny wacky Charles for a few years. For some reason, I don´t believe he has the longevity genes of the Queen, her mother and Queen Victoria.

I love Queen Elizabeth. When she is gone, the monarchy will never be the same. Wow, #7, that is an amazing factoid! What a smart woman! The Firm is simply preparing for a future monarchy more similar to the other crowned heads of Europe. My very very English MIL was telling me the other day that Americans seem more obsessed with William and Kate than the average English man/woman. I guess we probably are. Muslims are the growing demographic and they are not Royalists generally. The Palace continues to prepare for the future and make the necessary adjustments. Folks, it really won ´t matter that much who is King when. I think the Queen prepares to enjoy more time off. As a Mother and Grandmother, she is probably very glad that Charles and William are in happy solid marriages. That alone is a very good thing for the House of Windsor. This was a significant move and God bless the whole family!

I still believe - or want to believe - that Charles will abdicate when he becomes king. If I remember correctly, when he married the horse, the then archbishop told them that she would NOT be crowned queen. They gave her the duchess title. Now, when Charles automatically becomes king by line of succession, there is a three month mourning period before the new king is "anointed" not only as king but also as head of the church. During this time, I believe Charles will abdicate in favor of William.

This is what Edward VIII did to marry Wallys Simpson. He abdicated, exiled in France to never return to England again, and became the Duke of Windsor.

Well if Queen Elizabeth lives as long as her mother it will be another fifteen years or so before she passes away. By that time Prince Charles will be about eighty years old if he is still kicking. At that age he will not be kinging for very long. If nature takes it´s course, Prince William will be king for a long time. As time passes and Prince George and maybe a couple of his siblings grow up with mentors like William and Harry the British monarchy should be in good hands for the rest of our lifetimes.

The Brits have not asked for our opinion and will not be considering it. I also do not believe that Elizabeth will step down. It´s just not who she is. But, I also believe Charles is entitled to the throne when his mother dies and it seems that is why preparations are being made.

Not that the Brits asked me. [grin]

If Charles becomes king, Camilla becomes queen. (She´s also the Princess of Wales, but the title of Duchess is the one she uses publicly so as not to offend those who still cherish the memory of Diana.) Charles was a widower when he married Camilla, so there´s no obstacle from that standpoint.

“Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings has found what he calls the car industry’s “Holy Grail” — the first two Pontiac Firebirds ever built. Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

What Happened to the Tea Party?
The Federalist, by Robert Tracinski    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/17/2014 4:50:07 AM     Post Reply
It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

Let´s get one thing clear: If someone could wave a wand and make Jeb Bush president it would be a very good thing for the world and this country. As his mother said, he is the best-prepared person. But as his mother also said, he shouldn’t be running. And the reasons are becoming more clear by the day. Problem one is that much like Mitt Romney, he is one political generation too old. Both last held office in 2006, and seem to have stayed there. Problem two is the anguished ambivalence, reminiscent of Mario Cuomo and Adlai E. Stevenson, which does not bode

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots. Two layers of zippers keep the outside from getting in, and more importantly here -- the opposite. Nobody goes inside the tent without spending 15 minutes putting on isolation gear. The nurse handing over my garb calls it my "space suit." I can´t help but think that going into an Ebola

Tallahassee, Fla. — Early on the morning of Dec. 7, 2012, a freshman at Florida State University reported that she had been raped by a stranger somewhere off campus after a night of drinking at a popular Tallahassee bar called Potbelly’s. As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear. For nearly a year, the events of that evening remained a well-kept secret until the woman’s allegations burst into the open, roiling the university and threatening a prized asset: Jameis Winston, one of the marquee names of

   

 



 
How Safe Are U.S. Ferries?

Almost 300 people are missing off the coast of South Korea after a ferry there, carrying mostly schoolchildren, capsized and sank. About 164 people have been pulled from the wreckage, and the race to find survivors is well underway. No one ever expects a disaster, but this one has especially stunned people. Passengers say they heard a loud thud, which suggests the vessel collided with something, but it´s too early to tell.

WASHINGTON — 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. Mrs. Clinton played an energetic role in virtually every foreign policy issue of President Obama’s first term, advocating generally hawkish views internally while using her celebrity to try to restore America’s global standing after the hit it took during the George W. Bush administration. But her halting answer suggests a problem that Mrs. Clinton could confront as she

The head of the CIA just made a secretive journey to Ukraine—to do what, he won’t say. But the answer could change the power equation in the hottest of geopolitical hotspots. The Obama administration is now considering a new policy to share more real-time intelligence with the interim government in Kiev after pressure from some in the U.S. military, Congress and U.S. allies in Ukraine. Over the weekend, CIA director John Brennan met with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and First Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema to discuss the formation of new, more secure channels for sharing U.S. intelligence with the country

South Korean officials said Wednesday that nearly 300 people were still missing several hours after a passenger ferry sank off that country´s southern coast, leaving at least two dead and seven injured. A government official had said earlier Wednesday that around 100 people were unaccounted for, but the number was later revised upward due to a tallying error.

BOSTON - It was a shocking slaying in a Boston suburb that sometimes goes years without one homicide, let alone three at once. The victims´ throats had been sliced in a home on a tree-lined street, marijuana and cash strewn over their bodies. The investigation languished for more than 18 months until just a few days after the Boston Marathon explosions, when the FBI identified the suspected bombers as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, ethnic Chechens who emigrated from Russia to the U.S. about a decade ago.

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.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
