Cameron styles himself
as the heir to Thatcher

Telegraph [UK], by Peter Dominiczak & Bruno Waterfield

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 6/28/2014 8:50:56 AM

David Cameron compared himself to Margaret Thatcher on Friday and said he was fighting similar “battles” with the European Union. Mr Cameron evoked the memory of Baroness Thatcher’s fights with Brussels during the Eighties and said he had gone further than her by securing an EU budget cut last year. Despite those claims, he was mocked in Europe and compared to Rambo, Wayne Rooney and Don Quixote over his failure to stop the nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker. Mr Cameron said the EU was more difficult to reform than it was in Lady Thatcher’s time because a series of treaties have removed national vetoes.

Comments:
My, doesn´t he fancy himself...

Cameron appears to be paving the way for a referendum which will almost certainly result in a vote for leaving the EU. Far as I know, Baroness Thatcher is the only other Prime Minister who wanted to extricate the UK from the EU. It´s going to be a complicated untangling of an institution built up very deliberately, layer by layer, over approximately five or six decades. A comparison to the Gordian Knot is warranted but a sword might not do it in this case.

It´s quite possible that Cameron is waiting for a Republican President to replace Obama. Democrats want the UK to stay in the EU for reasons obvious to the average Ldotter so if a Republican can make it into the White House next time, there would be US-UK trade agreements all over the place and I wouldn´t have to pay a ridiculous price for a box of Weetabix.

Successor to Margaret Thatcher?

LOL!

More like the successor to Clement Attlee. Cameron is just a big dope. He´d be a perfect American RINO.

With all respect to #1´s love of home, the only man fit to be heir to Thatcher´s legacy would be Nigel Farage. The rest aren´t man enough to wear her pearls.

I´m a serious Anglophile #1, and a total fan of this Queen and her grandson.

LOS ANGELES — The president of the nation´s second-largest teachers union said Friday that President Barack Obama´s education chief has turned his back on the concerns of educators and parents, but she stopped short of calling for his ouster. Teachers unions have been clashing with the Obama administration over its support for charter schools and its push to use student test scores as part of teacher evaluations, a relationship that further frayed after Education Secretary Arne Duncan spoke in support of a California judge´s ruling last month that struck down tenure and other job protections for the state´s public school

Chimpanzees´ intelligence depends

Almost half the differences in chimpanzees´ intelligence is due to their genetic heritage, according to a study published in Current Biology magazine and which contributes to understanding the cognitive abilities of primates, including humans. The research was headed by Jennifer Shaeffer and William Hopkins of the Neuroscience Institute of Georgia State University and Jami Russell of the Yerkes National Primate Research Center in Atlanta. The authors recalled that the role played by genes in human IQ has been a matter of debate for ages. "As is the case in humans, genes matter when it comes to cognitive abilities in chimpanzees.

WASHINGTON - New enrollments in Obamacare´s Medicaid expansion and other healthcare programs for the poor have reached 6.7 million people since the launch of President Barack Obama´s healthcare reforms last year, the administration said on Friday. The figures, which include state Medicaid plans that existed before Obamacare and the Children´s Health Insurance Program, show enrollment climbing by 920,000 people during May, the latest month for which data is available. All told, new enrollments are up 11.4 percent since last October´s Obamacare rollout. Eight million Americans have also signed up for private health insurance through new state-based Obamacare insurance marketplaces. But while private

Federal health officials on Friday disclosed a new safety breach at a high-security U.S. government laboratory involving dangerous avian flu, a lapse that came to light as they investigated the potential exposure of researchers to live anthrax bacteria. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said an internal probe found multiple failures by individual scientists and a lack of agency-wide safety policies led to the potential exposure of more than 80 lab workers to live anthrax at its Atlanta campus last month. Researchers in a high-security bioterror lab sent samples of what they thought were inactivated bacteria to colleagues in

According to Border Patrol sources, violent MS-13 gang members are using the Nogales processing center in Arizona as a recruitment hub and as a transfer point for gang members to get into the United States. The Red Cross has set up phone banks inside the processing center so unaccompanied minors can make phone calls to family members inside the United States and back home in Central America. According to sources, those phones are also being used by MS-13 members to communicate with gang members already in the United States and operating in cities like Atlanta, New York and Chicago. Further,

Enforcement Actions –
Does President Obama
Actually Deport Illegal Aliens ?
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 7/11/2014 11:24:35 AM     Post Reply
By obfuscating terminology liberals sometimes can be heard to claim that President Obama has deported more illegal aliens than any previous president. NOT TRUE. There are two types of border enforcement actions: “Returns” and “Removals”. “Returns” are those stopped at the border and sent immediately back; the ones caught. “Removals” are those who get through the border and are caught later on. No previous administration has counted “returns” as deported, until Obama. What Obama is doing is counting those who are stopped at the border, the “returns”, as deported.

Milton police are reopening the investigation into last year’s death of a local concert hall owner following the recent arrest of a high-end call girl from metro Atlanta who California police said injected a Google executive with heroin and left him to die. Channel 2 Action News reported that the call girl, 2005 Northview High School graduate Alix Tichelman, was dating Dean Riopelle just before his death last September, and had been arrested two weeks before Riopelle died for biting the 53-year-old owner of Atlanta’s Masquerade concert venue. While news reports last fall indicated that Riopelle died of an apparent heart attack,

“Without borders, there is no nation,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wrote in a Breitbart op-ed this week. “Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America ... President Obama´s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here ... It´s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the Left or Right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” That this desperate cry for attention (dangling participle and all)

In his weekly radio/YouTube address, President Obama derided House Republicans’ planned lawsuit against him, warning that GOP lawmakers will spend taxpayer dollars on a frivolous legal challenge. “It’s a political stunt that’s going to waste months of America’s time. And by the way, they’re going to pay for it using your hard-earned tax dollars,” Obama said. (Video) House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has orchestrated the beginnings of a lawsuit against the president over his use of executive authority.

One local resident even says, “Barack Obama will go down as the worst president ever elected.” The Chicago resident below says: “With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace. And Barack is from the heart of 55th in the City of Chicago… He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected. Bill Clinton was the African-American president.“

The couple, who own hundreds of acres of protected land in Shelburne Falls, about 100 miles west of Boston, have been opposed to the pipeline since the company notified them last winter of plans to survey their land. Through a spokesman, the couple said it was “astounding” that New England’s six governors support the proposal, which they said shows “disrespect for humans, flora and fauna.” Supporters of the $3.75 billion Northeast Pipeline Extension Project say it will provide

Glenn Beck has set up Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund to help illegals coming into the United States. He’s already raised $600,000. Beck stated that Obama would not have to step in and ask for $3.7 billion if private charities would pick up the slack and give to the swarm of illegals crossing the border. Is he kidding? Do we really need more churches and non-profits enabling this blatant attack on America? Rich people and liberal elite billionaires have no skin in the game when it comes to the consequences of illegal immigration so what do they care? It’s the working class and middle class who will take the hit.
