An overjoyed Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are the proud parents of a healthy baby boy, and the nation celebrates the birth of a future king. The couple’s son weighed 8lb 6oz and was delivered at 4.24pm today at the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington with his proud father, Prince William, looking on. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight, said a spokesman for the palace. The long-awaited baby will be given the title His Royal Highness and be known as Prince of Cambridge,

I was wrong again, I thought it would be a 6 lb. girl.

This is a big baby for such a tiny woman.

Congrats to all!

It´s news and interesting and I wish the couple well, but I´ve been amazed to see the coverage this has gotten.

We´re Americans. We didn´t like royalty and many of the things it stands for. I´m surprised at the level of devotion by the MSM and people commenting -- and the still present reverence for Diana.

But at least it gives us a break from the Trayvon coverage.

The birth of a baby is a joy to the parents, whether they´re "royal" or poor as church mice.

I share in their joy. Congratulations to the new parents.

As an aside, this means it will be one more generation before the new rule of inheritance of the throne can be used--that the first born child succeeds, whether male or female.

As I understand it, the name the baby goes by may not be the name he assumes as King. William, for instance, could choose one of his several other given names. His great-grandfather, King George VI, was known in the family as "Bertie," his first name being Albert.

Many best wishes to this young child and to his parents.

And won´t the radical feminists be angry! They wanted a girl just to break precedent.

I was talking to my Mother earlier this afternoon as it is her 89th birthday. I told her that in my mind, I bet on Kate´s child being born today as it was a full moon. She smiled on the other end of the line.

Great news as I so appreciate Her Royal Highness & Prince William. My Mother also thought it was a good sign that both the brothers have served honorably in their Military. Happy first day, little one.

I´ve enjoyed the coverage of this young couple and wish them well with their new baby. William and Kate seem like genuine, decent people who love and respect each other, and they exude grace and class. They waited to have a child until after marriage, which is the proper thing to do.

Meanwhile, here in the U. S., we have the...Kardashians. Oy vey! What role models!

Congratulations to the parents and to all of our UK friends who are celebrating. Here´s to LIFE!

Not trying to be crabby, but I´m guessing that the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary´s hospital must be much nicer than the rest of that place. While visiting London a couple of years ago, I had to take my daughter to the emergency room and St. Mary´s was the closest to our hotel. It was dingy, dirty, shabby and crumbling. The end result of socialized medicine - we saw it in Romania too.

Name him Richard! In honour of the discovery of the body of Richard III last year - a great archeological moment.

Actually, I remember when Prince William was born, in 1982. It was right at the end of the Falklands War, and the British had retaken Port Stanley. Some people suggested the new royal baby should be named "Stanley" in honour of the victory. But the prospect of "Good King Stan" didn´t seem to be enough for the royal family to break with tradition.

That was a quick labor. Congratulations to the parents and the Royal Family.

Critics abound, but this family has survived and maintained the aura of royalty when all the other crowned heads of Europe have disappeared or become quite common. The monarchy was proclaimed dead after George III and his useless brood, again after Victoria, after the abdication of Edward VII and in the 1970s. Yet here the monarchy is is on the ascendency in Elizabeth II´s diamond jubilee year with the birth of a boy to a popular heir presumptive

Congrats to our royal allies across the pond.
I am sure Queen Elizabeth has recently found a new appreciation for religion. She must have been praying to newly minted St. John Paul for a boy, not a girl, because I am sure she thought the new baby would be named Diane (in honor of the late princess) whom she hated with a passion.

To Kate: Now let´s work on #2. Don´t forget the old saying, "A heir and a spare."

Congratulations to the Cambridges. It´s possible that the boy, if named George, would actually reign as George VIII, since there´s been speculation that Prince Charles would choose to reign under the name George if he does ascend to the throne. The previous two guys named King Charles were not exactly an illustrious precedent for a future Charles III.

#58, I seriously doubt it. There might be a discreet Royal Warrant, as in:

The warrant is typically advertised on company hoardings, letter-heads and products by displaying the coat of arms or the heraldic badge of the royal personage as appropriate. Underneath the coat of arms will usually appear the phrase "By Appointment to..." followed by the title and name of the royal customer, and then what goods are provided. No other details of what is supplied may be given.

The doctor´s warrant might simply say "provider of medical services" or something low-key like that. See: http://tinyurl.com/ly64l8j

As for the name, I´d love to see the child named after William´s brother, Henry (or Harry, as he is more commonly known). He might also be named Michael, after Kate´s father. As long as he´s not named Charles. . . .

However, this is not a day for cynicism. Heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to the Royal Family and all of Great Britain. Lord knows it´s nice to see some happy news for a change!

#62 - that would be Henry IX. And I doubt he´ll be named Henry. William´s brother is Henry. Harry is just a nickname.

Thank you, Lucianne Staff.

I never thought of Spencer as one of the middle names, but I think it would be entirely appropriate. I´ve thought of "James" as well, to honor the King that gave us the King James Bible, or George, to honor the Queen´s father.

Congrats to the proud parents. That´s a big baby. My daughter was 8lbs 4oz so yeah I´m sure that was some work pushing but Kate looked as good as ever. I say name the boy Richard since that´s such a strong kingly name. Whatever you do don´t name him after grandpa Charlie. We all know what kind of stand up guy he turned out to be.

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

Obama’s lies have led to global mistrust

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

It seems only yesterday, before the soothing elixir of “hope and change” was spoonfed to us by present-President Barack Obama, that Republicans could disagree with Democrats without being branded “teabaggers,” KKK-members, anarchists, Nazis, bomb throwers, arsonists, political terrorists or extremists. The unspeakable crime of conservatives? Their heartless desire to live their own lives and to be left alone by the bullying U.S. government. What has been the conservative outcry since disco was still a thing? Follow the Constitution, be fiscally responsible, and restore limited government.

SPRINGFIELD — As the General Assembly heads into its final month of session, House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that he doesn’t have enough votes lined up yet to extend the state’s income tax increase or raise the minimum wage. The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

Tea leaf readers may want to pay close attention to a staff change at the White House. The lawyer who claims that “when an IRS audit found that the tax collection agency had been targeting conservative political groups,” it was her “decision not to tell the president about the findings, in an attempt to shield Obama from charges he interfered in the investigation” is being replaced with a lawyer who is a veteran of the scandals in the Clinton White House, including Whitewater, and who represented him in the Monica Lewinsky investigation.

Maryland´s Attorney General Douglas Gansler accused his opponent, Iraqi war vet and Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, of not being capable of a ´real job´. Gansler and Brown are both fighting over the democrat nomination for Governor in Maryland, so this is a case of democrat on democrat violence. Gansler was speaking at a Tech Council of Maryland event when he unloaded the following comments about Brown: "I´m running against somebody who has never managed anybody, never run anything, his ads are about how he’s a lawyer in Iraq, and that’s all fine and good but this is a real job."

Lyndhurst, Ohio -Christina Lunka appeared nervous and excited as she sat in the Chinese herbal therapy center recently opened by the Cleveland Clinic. The 49-year-old had been to many doctors seeking help for ongoing issues that included joint pain and digestive problems.

"Absolutely," responded Ms. Roofener. "This is for pain, for digestion, for inflammation, all of the above," she said, handing Ms. Lunka a bottle with capsules of an herbal combination called

First lady Michelle Obama told “LIVE with Kelly and Michael” co-hosts Michael Strahan and Kelly Ripa that Sundays for the first family have become more about napping, downtime and family time than about church or godly worship.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
