of 87 after suffering a massive stroke

Daily Mail [UK], by James Nye

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 4/8/2013 8:55:39 AM

Margaret Thatcher, the first female British Prime Minister who gained worldwide renown as the Iron Lady has died aged 87. Developing a formidable partnership with President Ronald Reagan during the 1980s, Mrs. Thatcher stood up to the ´Evil Empire´ of the Soviet Union, eventually witnessing its collapse. [Snip] Responding to her death, Buckingham Palace said, ´The Queen is sad to hear the news of the death of Baroness Thatcher and Her Majesty will be sending a private message of sympathy to the family, Buckingham Palace said today.´ British Prime Minster David Cameron said on hearing of her passing, ´It was

Wow..what a woman! We could use her about now - Reagan too. God bless her and all she did in the name of freedom and common sense.

The Lioness is gone. She had more guts in her little finger than any leader in the West has today.

God rest her soul and welcome a new Saint into Heaven. Say hi to Ronnie Reagan for us all.

I had the opportunity to hear her speak in Corpus Christi, Texas about 20 years ago. What a lady!

It was the effort between three people ... Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II that took down the Soviet Union without a single shot fired.

Perhaps make an exception today and remove the picture of the sadistic cow and put up a picture of Baroness Thatcher.

Just a thought...

Little did I know quite how cruel the Guardian would be. All you need to know about their announcement is:

After a series of mini-strokes in 2002 Thatcher withdrew from public life, no longer able to make the kind of waspish pronouncements that had been her forte in office – and beyond.

I could read no more after that. How childish!

Unless you want to become seriously angry and get that awful lump stuck in your throat, do not read the British left-wing newspapers.

Sadly and absolutely correct, OP.

How the world needs people with the strength, character and wisdom of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan to be leaders today.

I´m thankful to have lived through those years and to have experienced firsthand the blessing and example of leadership they were for that generation, and for any future generations that would follow their example.

They knew the difference between right and wrong and would not be deterred from doing right. They did not "go wobbly" in the face of wrongdoers.

Prayers and condolences for her family. Many of us are being thankful for her and mourning with you today. God bless.

Yes, thanks for changing the photo on the home page so that PIAPS is not associated in any way the greatness that is Margaret Thatcher.

I took my daughters to Houston when she was there about 25 years ago. We just happened to be in the right place, about to cross the street, when her car drove by and she gave us the "Queen´s wave." I´ll never forget it. I´ll have to remind my daughters about that day.

I am just so sad, people like Baroness Thatcher and President Reagan do not exist anymore. They had such good souls and such concern for their countries and the world. Good did triumph over evil but it seems since they have gone everything is now in a mess. They showed on TV Baroness Thatcher giving a speech about President Reagan, they showed President Reagan and it was so good to just see his face and know that he watched over the country like a father watches over his family. But sadly people of this caliber do not go into politics.

What a woman!!

I always loved the quote from President Reagan -- "she´s the best man for the job".....

President Reagan and the Iron Lady saved Unified Germany from the Soviet Union´s mandates and today Germany can thank the Iron Lady they are successful in the unified Germany....

Only proves for me -- how deficient our leaders are. AND -- don´t be thinking the bubbette clinton can measure up to Baroness Thatcher. Maggie got to the top on her own. Clinton rode the coat/tails of her husband. Where are the feminists decrying her sleazy ride to the top of DC elitism.

Rest in Peace dear Baroness -- you deserve it. Golly the good times are rolling again for President Reagan and Prime Minister Thatcher. Wouldn´t you love to hear their conversations?

What sad news to wake up to. This is a lady who gave us hope. I never wanted her to leave us. From her handbag to her blue eyeshadow to her shopping for bacon for Dennis because the Secret Service ´won´t know the kind he likes,´ to her great iron will against the Argy tinpots in the Falklands War, her powerful willingness to stand up to union thugs in the mines and crush the unions, her privatization of Brit phone company that so many Brits praised when I lived there, to her critical alliance with the Pope and Ronald Reagan - one which defied the hippie camps of Greenham Common and defied the French so planes could teach Ghadafi a lesson, to her shrewd assessment of Mikhial Gorbachev as someone she could ´do business with´, to her brave praise of ´Victorian Values´ and ´Victorian workmanship´ - after an IRA bomb failed to blow up an old building she was staying in, to her spectacular, spirited defense of Augusto Pinochet - this lady made a great difference in the world. I am in mourning at the loss of her, but know she is with the immortals now.

Rest in Peace.

All I can see are those who´s most priority is to get re-elected at any cost. I don´t see a single one of any political ideology that is willing to stand up like the great Baroness Thatcher. GOD surly has received one of HIS greatest.

At this early stage following Mrs. Thatcher´s death, the UK newspapers were full of tributes, with the only stink bomb being thrown by Gerry Adams, the Irish Republican Army big wig, who reportedly said that she just hurt the Irish and British people during her term as UK Prime Minister.

There will be true mourning among what is left of the World War II generation when England was, well, England. The state-run BBC will instead reflect the Marxist indoctrination of Britain´s young people for three generations. We who are fortunate enough to know the truth about this great LEADER must do just as OP so wisely suggests.

This great woman was known as Margaret Thatcher, and it was offensive to see her remembered with a never used monarchial title.
Tom Paine wrote bestselling Common Sense in the 1700´s, brilliantly telling all colonists we don´t need the monarchy any longer, ever again.
Let´s remember wonderful, freedom loving Margaret Thatcher. Not the monarchy.

I got to see the first speech she gave after being forced out of power. She was an awesome speaker. Her answers in a tough Q& A session afterwards was spot on - none of the glad you asked that then a change of subject.

What impressed me most, however, was her graciousness. The CCFR had booked what may have been the biggest ballroom in Chicago but it wasn´t enough. There was an overflow room. When the Q & A was ending, Thatcher asked we all remain seated because she and her security detail were going to exist through the crowd so they could go across the hall because in her words those in the overflow room "Paid to see me, not a close circuit image."

Two stories I remember reading about her. A cabinet member recalled during the Falklands War the military people had spread a huge ordinance survive maps on the floor at Number Ten Downing Street. The PM kicked off her pumps, stepped onto the map and began to point out troop emplacements with a well pedicured toe.

The SAS runs regularly highly realistic hostage rescue drills with the PM and cabinet members. One of the SAS men who had witnessed her dressing down a subordinate who´d froze during those drills wrote that when she visited their base, the the toughest person at Hereford was the one with the handbag

Love this quote: from May 3, 1989

"If you just set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time and you would achieve nothing." -- commenting on her 10th anniversary as prime minister.
May she Rest in Peace.

#47, another story. After a long day she took her cabinet to dinner. After asking for the specialty of the day from the waiter he indicated it was roast beef. Before anyone else had ordered she said she would have the roast beef. The waiter said "Excellent, and the vegetables?". Thatcher said, "Oh, they´ll have the roast beef, too."

Margaret Thatcher was a gift to world as was Ronald Reagan. I will never forget her appearance at President Reagan´s funeral when she was, in fact, getting somewhat frail. She could have sent her condolences but she was determined to be there to pay her respects to her dear friend. She was a remarkable woman who will be remembered as a force to be reckoned with. Well done, Baronness.

Baronness Thatcher, the last of the troika that toppled international Communism, has joined the Ronald Reagan and John-Paul II in God´s Heaven. The Iron Lady has earned our gratitude, our respect, and eternal rest in glory. An era of temporary respite has indeed passed; tribulations are again at hand. We await - once more - temporary salvation through mortals, or eternal salvation through the Divine.

I saw her once!! At a distance, that is. We were in DC and on the Mall. She was visiting Reagan and the helicopter landed and picked her up to take her back to Andrews AFB.

There happened to be an English lady right next to us, and she pointed her out, although the security made it pretty obvious (Reagan was the tall one!).

What a grand, ´´lady,´´ in every sense of the word! Her political life is one of brilliant, selfless public service. Her philosophy regarding the principles which secure Life, Liberty and Justice for all was pure and good. Faithful to Christ, her personal compass throughout her awesome life, Thatcher has become one of the world´s greatest leaders of all time for the good of all peoples. Her entire life established a true pattern of positive accomplishments and Lady Thatcher is now a role model for for the ages. ...´´Well done, thou good and faithful servant.´´

What a wonderful strong powerful woman. She is one of a kind and will be missed very much. I am mourning her loss today along with the first girl I ever had a school boy crush on. This mnorning I heard of the passing of Anette Funicello, the cute little Mouseketeer I grew up adoring. She had a cutle little face, curly dark hair and I was love struck. Thousands of little girls were named Anette in her honor.
She passed away at age 70. Two candles will be burning in my house for these wonderful women who made a difference in the world. Women of today need role models like these two fabulous ladies, and not role models like The First Wookie and Hillarme Clinton.
RIP Iron Lady and Mouseketeer Anette!

Bill Federer published a tribute to Margaret Thatcher today. He quoted the following.

´´Biblical basis affects one´s whole view, attitude and outlook... The notion of human rights comes from the sanctity on the individual...The Decalogue-Ten Commandments - are addressed to each and every person. This is the origin of our common humanity and of the sanctity of the individual. Each one has a duty to try to carry out those commandments. You don´t get that in any other political creed...

´´It isn´t merely about democracy and liberty...It is personal liberty with personal responsibility. Responsibility to your parents, to your children, to your God. This really binds us together in a way that nothing else does. If you accept freedom, you´ve got to have principles about the responsibility. You can´t do this without a Biblical foundation. Your Founding Fathers came over with that. They came over with the doctrines of the New Testament as well as the Old. They looked after one another, not only as a matter of necessity, but as a matter of duty to their God. There is no other country in the world which started that way.´´

´´Iron Lady´´ reminds me of ´´Sarahcudda.´´

I haven´t posted in years but this tragedy requires it. I (and 150 others) had the great pleasure off having lunch with Baroness Thatcher years ago (maybe 15 or 20) in Sacramento. She was so regal and articulate. Her remembrance of Reagan and her dealing with the Cold War was spellbinding. This is indeed a sad day.

Another story 2.
During an official trip to Europe Prime Minister Thatcher was targeted in threats so her visit was under escort of the US Military. My young son newly made a US Elite Guard was honored to be chosen as that escort for a week after just finishing 3 hell days with an American congresswoman.
When t hey drove into a very dangerous place he said " Mam if i suddenly say down please quickly hit the floor and if we are stopped stay there". Her reply was "Do you think I would cower there while such a young Brave guard took bullets in the gutter for me".
"I am trained and I am accurate proceed forward".
He felt she should come to save America and remained his all time favorite leader out of many he encountered.
He will silently salute her today.

In the annals of British History two women have left their indellible signatures, Elizabeth I and Magaret Thatcher.

Of the first it can be said that her father was disappointed that she wasnt a boy. And yet under her leadership Britain repelled the Spanish Armada.

Two hundred years later Napoleon sneered that the British could not field an army as they were ´a nation of shoppe keepers!´ And yet along came the daughter of a shoppe keeper who untimately saved Britain.


Well done mam, enjoy your rpose with the angels.

Poor PIAPS and Moochelle. For one day they are not in the headlines.

Baroness Thatcher was an inspirational, iron willed, principled leader. God Bless you Baroness and thank you for a life well lived in the service of God, Freedom and your Nation.

A lady of dignity, determination, and grace - a true heroine. She loved her country dearly.

From a WP Editorial Board article, "´I can’t bear Britain in decline, I just can’t,´ she said in an interview shortly before her election as prime minister 32 years ago."

Thanks to her job well done, Britain´s decline was held mostly in abeyance while she served as Prime Minister.

Rest in heavenly peace, dearest Lady, rest in peaceful sleep.

When Sarah Palin hit the national stage in 2008, my first reaction was, "Sarah Palin is our Margaret Thatcher."

America does have leaders with Reagan´s and Thatcher´s greatness, including Senator Rand Paul and the Senators who supported him, Senators Cruz and Lee. The liberal heathen media attempts to run roughshod over our Conservative Constitution-supporting heroes, and I say, "NO MORE."

Time to fight the left with Thatcher and Reagan like tactics. Tell the truth as loudly and boldly as possible, and insist that our Conservative "leaders" do the same. Beat the drum of truth about our "leaders" supplying arms to our enemies, through Benghazi and Fast and Furious.

Another great Brit comes to mind -- Winston Churchill -- and his famous quote, "Never give up, never give up, never give up."

Asian pollution is causing a ´dramatic´

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said. Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

Russia Spent More of Its Wealth

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

A total lunar eclipse will turn the moon a dark blood red tonight. Just after Mars reaches its closest point to earth in six years, a distance of a mere 57.4 million miles, a total lunar eclipse will spectacularly change the colour of the moon. But don´t get too twitchy with the curtains in the early hours--only people in north and south America will be able to see it with the naked eye.

If there was a standard operating manual for the secret services of the world´s dodgier regimes, it would no doubt omit any mention of the term "agent provocateur". In Russia, Burma, Iran et al, state-backed agents never get involved in causing trouble. Instead, there are only "patriotic local citizens", who, unable to contain themselves, rise up in righteous indignation against those who might betray the nation. That, if Russia is to be believed, is exactly what it happening in eastern Ukraine right now. According to a statement this morning from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, there are "no Russian

When William Hague, our Foreign Secretary, warns that Russia is quietly orchestrating anti-government protests in eastern Ukraine, his words should be taken as a wake-up call to all those other EU foreign ministers who are none too keen on standing up to Russian President Vladimir Putin´s newfound enthusiasm for Tsarist-style military adventures. [Snip] While both Mr Kerry and Mr Hague are coy about precisely how they know the Russians are up to no good in Ukraine, it is no secret that the FSB, Russia´s equivalent of the CIA, is committed to keeping Ukraine in a state of heightened instability for

The United Nations (UN) has delivered its latest verdict on the measures necessary to save the world from global warming and the news is as grim as it is predictable and wearisomely familiar: More regulation from "experts", technocrats and bureaucrats at supranational organisations, such as the one whose initials begin with U and end with N. [Snip] More nuclear power (with shale gas used as a transitional fuel to replace coal). The abandonment of fossil fuels. Less meat consumption. A single, globally-regulated price for carbon dioxide.

Big Brother isn´t watching you--but he is listening. The S.C. Department of Health and Human Services, one of the largest, costliest agencies in state government, pays Clemson University´s Social Analytics Institute $50,000 a year to "scrape data" from 150 million public, real-time feeds each day and report back to the agency what people on the Internet are talking about.

What is Vladimir Putin’s game? The recent unrest in eastern Ukraine has been presented by the Kremlin as an autonomous phenomenon, an upsurge of patriotic feeling among embattled ethnic Russians who long for the protection of the Motherland against what they see as a neo-nationalist regime in Kiev. It may be true that the initial impulse came from locals acting without Russia’s direct involvement. But it is becoming clear that, just as in Crimea, many of the “separatists” are not just taking their orders from Moscow, but are very probably Russian troops in paper-thin disguise. The key difference is that,

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
