Why has no Thatcher or Reagan
emerged for our troubled times?

Telegraph [UK], by Charles Moore

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 4/4/2014 3:06:56 PM

A year ago this coming Tuesday, I was travelling to London on a train, correcting the proofs of my biography of Margaret Thatcher. As we reached Charing Cross, I signed off the last page of the book (which concerns victory in the Falklands war). When I got off the train, I discovered she had died. By Lady Thatcher’s own stipulation, her passing was my deadline, and so we were ready. Volume One was published on St George’s Day, a few days after her tremendous, healing funeral. In the ensuing year, I have given roughly 200 speeches, broadcasts and interviews about the

Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin for starters. And I think Nigel Farage in Britain has the liberals scared to death.
In fact they are calling for what they call control of the press to ensure Mr. Farage doesn´t get too many headlines.
Liberals don´t want him getting elected by the voters now.

The writer asks why has no Thatcher or Reagan has emerged in our troubled times. Well Mr. Moore, perhaps it is because times and the culture have changed for the far worse, and there are no longer constituencies large enough to elect people of their caliber. Just a suggestion, awful as it is.

Both parties have been co-opted by Progressives and Commies. There is no sviorcoming from DC. The people MUST and have risen up in the form of the TEA Party and other patriot groups.

The people are rising up in another way, in a movement that is growing every day. Come to the National Liberty Alliance to see what is happening. We are empaneling peoples grand juries in every county nationwide and plan to bring every court back into the control of its citizens. This nation is overcriminalized and we are in danger every day of running afoul of edicts, statutes, and pronouncements invoked to control us and enrich the criminals at the top. Come to the NLA site, read, listen and learn how we can fight back against the rogue government(s).

Because and potential Reagan or Thatcher is beaten back under accusations o racism, homophobia, sexism or stupidity.

Any position that does not agree 100% with what the leftist media believes is branded anti-woman, mean spirited, racist, homophobic etc. Lets face it folks ..... we have to figure out how to get past the gate keepers to political office. And that would be the press.

Israel has ordered thousands of Palestinians in eastern and northern Gaza to leave their homes as it continues air strikes. The warning came after an Egyptian truce initiative failed to halt militant rocket attacks on Israel. Hamas initially rejected the truce but an official later told the BBC it would consider a political solution. [Snip] The resumption of air strikes come after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he had "no choice" but to step up the military campaign.

People who are most concerned about climate change use more electricity than those who believe it to be not so serious a threat, a government study has found. The Household Electricity Survey, commissioned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change, said that this discrepancy may be due to the fact that older people, who are most likely to not see climate change as a threat, are generally more frugal with their energy consumption: [Snip] However, even with over-65s removed, there is still only a weak trend suggesting that people who profess to care about the environment actually do more

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

Israel to escalate Gaza military

The first Israeli was killed by a missile fired from Gaza on Tuesday night setting the week-long conflict on course for an even bloodier new phase with Israel poised to escalate its military offensive. A 38-year-old man was pronounced death at Askelon´s Barzilai medical centre after suffering severe shrapnel wounds from a missile fired on Tuesday afternoon, according to initial Israeli media reports. The reports suggested he was an ultra-Orthodox rabbi distributing food to Israeli soldiers near the Erez border crossing into Gaza. Hamas´s military wing, the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, claimed responsibility for the death, saying they had killed a soldier in a

Pope Francis has called for ´urgent intervention´ to welcome and protect minors traveling on their own from Central and South America to the United States in increasing numbers. The pontiff said today that such measures should include an information campaign on the dangers of the journey. He called on the international community to rise to the challenge and adopt ´new forms of legal and safe migration.´ Tens of thousands of children have streamed from chaotic Central American nations in recent months to the U.S. border, overwhelming the government´s ability to respond. Francis issued his message in a letter to a Vatican conference

Netanyahu: If Hamas does not

As Hamas rockets continued to fall on Israel even after Jerusalem accepted the Egyptian ceasefire proposal at 9 A.M., Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that if Hamas does not accept the ceasefire than Israel will “have all international legitimacy to broaden the military operation to achieve the required quiet.” Netanyahu, speaking at the beginning of a meeting in Tel Aviv with German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, said that Israel “agreed to the Egyptian proposal in order to give an opportunity for the demilitarization of the Strip--from missiles, from rockets and from tunnels--through diplomatic means." The prime minister, in his first public comments

The Libyan government has said it was considering calling for international forces to help re-establish security, after a flare-up of violence in the capital Tripoli. "The government is looking into the possibility of making an appeal for international forces on the ground to re-establish security and help the government impose its authority," a government spokesman said in a statement. It also said the forces would help protect civilians and prevent anarchy. The statement comes after deadly clashes Sunday with armed groups led to the closing of the main international airport in Tripoli, which has come under rocket fire.

   

 



 
Hamas rejects ceasefire with
Israel over Gaza conflict

Hopes for an end to the bloody week-long conflict in Gaza hung in the balance on Tuesday when Israel accepted an Egyptian proposal for a ceasefire only for Hamas, the Palestinian territory’s de facto rulers, to reject it. The early morning decision by Israel’s security cabinet came before a 9am deadline for the de-escalation of hostilities kicked in. The Egyptian ceasefire plan was to give both sides an initial 12 hours to stop attacks. But prospects for the proposal to take hold appeared to diminish when Hamas’s leadership bluntly declared itself opposed to the terms, with the group’s military wing

Israel accepts Egypt proposal
to end Gaza conflict

Israel has accepted an Egyptian truce proposal for the conflict with Gaza. Hamas, which controls Gaza, has not formally responded. But its armed wing has rejected the plan as a "surrender". Under the terms, the ceasefire should begin immediately, followed by a series of meetings in Cairo with high-level delegations from both sides. Palestinian officials say at least 192 people have been killed by Israeli air strikes launched eight days ago to stop militants firing rockets into Israel. There have been no Israeli air strikes into Gaza since the 09:00 ( 06:00 GMT) truce, but at least one rocket has

Have a look at this recent BBC interview with Al Gore. Then, once you´ve cleaned up the sick, consider what it tells us about the current debate on climate change. I´d suggest two things. 1. The mainstream media still isn´t doing its due diligence in exposing the scam. 2. (And this is a consequence of 1.) Charlatans like Al Gore are getting away with murder. "The science doesn´t support that view" declares Gore airily. And instead of challenging Gore on what this "science" of which he claims to be the gatekeeper actually says, the journalist smiles indulgently and moves on

The U.S. Justice Department is claiming that Microsoft must hand over emails that the company stores in databases in Dublin, Ireland, in a case that is being watched closely by tech companies legal scholars. The U.S. federal government is claiming that it can force any company that conducts business operations within its borders to comply with warrants for data stored on its databases, even if those databases aren´t physically located within the United States. Several companies that operate within the U.S. keep databases in other countries. Ireland has become a popular location for many of the U.S. tech companies.

The U.S. government´s latest attempt to stop illegal immigrants crossing the border comes via the radio. As part of a new multi-million dollar ´Dangers Awareness Campaign´, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection campaign commissioned a catchy Spanish song to be written and produced to discourage families in Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador from sending their children with smugglers to cross the U.S. border through Mexico. That song--La Bestia--has subsequently become a major radio hit in Central America, with its legion of fans unaware it was created to ´teach´ them something. La Bestia--translated as ´The Beast´--refers to the notoriously dangerous freight

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
