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."

European Tycoon Accuses Google of

One of Europe´s most powerful media tycoons has accused Google of seeking to create a digital ´superstate´ outside the control of national regulators and privacy laws. Mathias Döpfner, head of the giant German multi-media company Axel Springer, says Wir haben Angst vor Google: "We are afraid of Google." [Snip] Writing an open letter to Eric Schmidt, chairman of Google, in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Döpfner said: "Google not only knows where we are going in our cars, but also what we do while we’re driving. Forget Big Brother – Google is better!" He expressed worries about Google´s dominance

One of US president Barack Obama´s leading campaign strategists has been recruited by Labour to play a key role in Ed Miliband´s bid for Downing Street in next year´s general election. David Axelrod, who is credited with masterminding Mr Obama´s presidential victories in 2008 and 2012, will join Labour´s general election campaign team as a senior strategic adviser, the party announced. His appointment was been hailed by Labour as a major coup, and ´´seriously bad news for the Conservatives´´, at a time when Mr Miliband has been under fire from sections of his own party for his campaign tactics.

I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

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.

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,

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own.
