Timing is Everything
Taki’s Magazine, by Allan Massie

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 5/19/2017 11:22:19 AM

William Gladstone, the great Victorian Liberal leader, the most successful electoral politician of the age, believed that success in politics depended on right timing. This was why he often withdrew into silence, hesitating, turning things over in his mind, before coming to a decision and announcing it when he believed the right moment had come. It has to be said that our present prime minister, Theresa May, has in this respect shown herself to be a pupil of Gladstone. Much as I dislike and distrust her, she has shown the ability to keep her cards concealed, close to her chest, until

Massie, who is honest about his personal negative feelings about May, wonders if her predecessor David Cameron, “condemned to hours at leisure and on the tennis court by his own mistakes”, is wondering about timing?

ROME — Pope Francis earlier this year ordered Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, the top doctrinal watchdog in the Roman Catholic Church, to fire three priests from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which is the keeper of the church’s orthodoxy and presides over investigations into sexual abuse Cardinal Müller, an ideological conservative often at odds with the pontiff, was vexed by the order, and, in a recent interview, said he had made a case, in vain, for the priests to stay in Rome.

REPORT: After Phoenix

When the City of Phoenix ended its sanctuary city status crime began to fall, the Arizona Police Association reports. Their statement contrasts sharply with politically motivated chiefs of police from around the country. “When we eliminated our sanctuary policy back in 2008, we saw crime, violent and stolen vehicles fall by 25 percent,” former Phoenix police officer and Executive Director of the Arizona Police Association Levi Bolton told Fox News Channel’s William La Jeunesse in an interview. “We saw a 20-year low crime rate. When we were allowed and had the discretion to contact our federal immigration partners, crime fell

The Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC), the leading conservative seniors’ organization in the country, filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Thursday over CNN’s reporting on Russian hacking. In the light of hidden camera videos from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas showing a CNN producer calling the narrative “bulls***,” and CNN Contributor Van Jones’s characterization of the Russia “collusion” story as a “nothing burger,” AMAC has brought a complaint under FCC regulations against the knowing broadcast of false information. AMAC President Dan Weber, in a press release accompanying the filing of the complaint, said: [I]t became clear CNN

Despite efforts by individual nations and the European Union to get to grips with the migrant crisis, nearly 100,000 people crossed the Mediterranean in the first half of 2017. While the significant figure is down on the same period in 2016 and shows the migrant deal with Turkey has been partially successful, the latest figures reported by the UN Migration Agency (IOM) show the problem is slowly shifting West. Recording the total 95,768 migrants arriving in Europe by sea from January through to the end of June, the number entering Greece fell considerably in Greece but rose steadily in Italy and Spain,




Pentagon Halts Obama’s
Transgender Endorsement Plan

The Secretary of Defense has frozen a decision by former President Barack Obama to recruit transgender soldiers this year, and a new poll shows the planned recruitment freeze is very popular. Two of every three swing voters say the Pentagon should postpone plans to accept “transgender” people who are trying to live as members of the opposite sex, according to the new poll by Rasmussen Reports. Defense Secretary James Mattis explained his July 30 decision to delay Obama’s plan for six months, just before it was to begin operating: Since becoming the Secretary of Defense, I have emphasized that the Department of

LOS ANGELES — Hollywood great Olivia de Havilland has launched her own sequel to the TV series "Feud" — a lawsuit. The double Oscar-winning actress filed suit Friday against FX Networks and producer Ryan Murphy´s company, alleging the drama inaccurately depicts her as a gossipmonger and is an invasion of privacy. The suit was filed in Los Angeles on Friday — one day before de Havilland turns 101. The actress, whose credits include the role of Melanie Hamilton in "Gone with the Wind," lives in Paris. De Havilland´s suit alleges that "Feud: Bette and Joan," about the testy relationship of Bette Davis and

Once upon a time the American Establishment enjoyed business paragons such as David Rockefeller, Daniel Ludwig, William Paley, Henry Ford II, not to mention Thomas Watson and his son Thomas Watson Jr. Toward the end of the 20th century, that old power elite had gone with the wind, replaced by people that Hilaire Belloc used to refer to as money shufflers, hustlers who never created anything, but employed a few secretaries while they bet on whether other people’s accomplishments would rise or fall in value. It was and is a hell of a game, mostly done with mirrors, as people

CNN is the Coward News Network. When Saddam Hussein threatened network to shut down its Baghdad bureau, CNN agreed to ignore his atrocities and report only the good things Hussein did, which kept the bureau open. Therefore, the hard time CNN tries to give President Trump is a sign that our nation is healing from the Chicago-style politics of the past, because if Trump were a strongman, CNN would cower.The sophomoric antics of Jim Acosta, CNN´s senior White House correspondent, amuse me because his over-the-top rhetoric would not be possible if Trump were truly were what Acosta says he is.

A Democratic congressman has proposed convening a special committee of psychiatrists and other doctors whose job would be to determine if President Donald Trump is fit to serve in the Oval Office. Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, who also teaches constitutional law at American University, has predictably failed to attract any Republicans to his banner. But the U.S. Constitution´s 25th Amendment does allow for a majority of the president´s cabinet, or ´such other body as Congress may by law provide,´ to decide if an Oval Office occupant is unable to carry out his duties – and then to put it to

President Trump launched personal attacks against us Thursday, but our concerns about his unmoored behavior go far beyond the personal. America’s leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president. We have our doubts, but we are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, “Morning Joe.” The president’s unhealthy obsession with our show has been in the public record for months, and we are seldom surprised by his posting nasty tweets about us. During the campaign, the Republican nominee called Mika “neurotic” and promised to attack us

Perhaps there is no better window on the awfulness of the self-appointed New York-to-DC ruling class than MSNBC’s Morning Joe. The show revolves around a collection of chattering-class bores who devote the start of their day to seconding each other’s shallow and smug criticiasms of Trump. The women make faces; the men roll their eyes. Co-host Mika Brzezinski is a feminist who lectures other women on the need to show firmness in a man’s world. Yet she spends most of the show acting like a prim, entitled Victorian-era dingbat on a fainting couch. She grips her chair for balance while she

Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg wants his social network to fill the role that churches and social clubs once did in communities. During a speech at the first Facebook Communities Summit last week, Zuckerberg said membership in all kinds of groups has declined in the last several decades. "That´s a lot of of people who now need to find a sense of purpose and support somewhere else," said said, promoting Facebook´s large community-support groups as a substitute. In fact, bringing people closer together is so important that "we´re going to change Facebook´s whole mission to take this on," Zuckerberg

Melania Trump issued a furious condemnation of Mika Brzezinski on Friday afternoon after the Morning Joe co-host suggested she wanted out of her marriage to the president. The first lady issued a statement to DailyMail.com, claiming Brzezinski does not know her, hours after an explosive interview with the MSNBC broadcaster appeared online.

Former President Barack Obama challenged President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate agreement, describing it as the “absence of American leadership.” “In Paris, we came together around the most ambitious agreement in history about climate change, an agreement that even with the temporary absence of American leadership, can still give our children a fighting chance,” Obama said during a speech in Indonesia on Saturday.

Washington - So, with this latest toad jumping from our president’s mouth, is Donald Trump acting like a sexist pig or simply a pig? I proffer, a pig. I have no doubt that he would attack a man’s appearance in the same breathtakingly below-the-belt way if he felt humiliated by that man and had the ammunition. In his vile tweet about Mika Brzezinski, he called her crazy. He often tweets that women journalists — including me — are crazy. Yet in that same tweet about Mika, he called Joe Scarborough “psycho.” And he told the Russians in May that James Comey was “a nut job.” Some, including Scarborough, think Trump goes after women

ICYMI, President Trump’s tweets this morning are sparking calls for everything from officially declaring him “incapacitated” to serve as president, to the commencement of impeachment proceedings, to the now-familiar anxiety inspired by proof that our commander in chief is completely unhinged. There’s no doubt that a president multi-tweeting about a news anchor’s appearance and IQ is inappropriate/undignified/deeply weird, but what else does it mean? (Snip) Mika Brzezinski should consider suing Trump for defamation. After all, sometimes a well-timed civil lawsuit can have some pretty profound consequences. Just ask Paula Jones and Monica Lewinsky. Would I typically advocate litigating over two
