Commonwealth in secret succession plans
BBC News, by James Landale

Original Article

Posted By:konocti95, 2/13/2018 10:18:45 AM

The issue is hugely sensitive because the role is not hereditary and will not pass automatically to the Prince of Wales on the Queen´s death. The Commonwealth has set up a "high level group" to look at the way the international organisation is governed. This group is meeting later, officially to review how the Commonwealth is run by its secretariat and governors. It said the issue of the succession of the head of the Commonwealth was not part of the group´s mandate, but described the day-long discussions as "open". However, senior sources added that the gathering in London would also consider what happens when the

The Queen gave up on Prince Charles the wimp a long, long time ago. He´s got a snowball´s chance in hell of making it to the throne after the scandals he brought upon the crown.

Like the adulterous Prince Edward (Queen Victoria´s eldest son), Prince Charles will be King. He might not be King for long considering the long-lived Queen Elizabeth, but he will get his crown following her death. (God help them.) But I doubt very much the British subjects will accept Camilla as Queen Consort. It will be a PR nightmare for the Palace.

Charles will automatically be king. I think that during the waiting period for his coronation (where he will be anointed king) he will abdicate. William and Catherine are popular, Camilla is not.

I am not impressed with Charles. He´s a wimp and an idiot. He takes after his Uncle who abdicated. They would be much better off in the long run with Prince William whose wife has more class in her little finger than that horsey Camilla.

We’ve been watching The Crown on Netflix. If it is at all acurate, and it appears to be, Charles learned his behavior from his father who is and always has been a first class pr!ck.

I’m not crazy about William’s politics but at least he’s not as loony as his father.

It appears that Elizabeth is a pleasant anomaly in the House of Windsor, a sensible, sane, reasonable person who understands both the commoners and her position very well, all in a good balance.

Charles is an idiot on his best days, William may be OK, it isn´t too clear yet.

Royals, pretty much past their "use by date". After Elizabeth, perhaps just cancel the whole thing?

We got entirely past it in 1776, and have been just fine ever since.

This has been known for a long time, about how the Commonwealth can decide if they want to stick with it when the current Monarch passes. This is why she started giving Charles more responsibility to represent her, so that the Commonwealth can get to know him a little better before making their decision in the future.

But I am betting that some are still going to leave once Lillibet does, because the public opinion of Charles as a dim and ignorant fool has been around for a long time. With the trend of elderly monarchs abdicating in favor of their more youthful heirs, I would not be surprised either to see Parliament skip Charles and go right to William when the time comes and they give their opinion to the succession. Especially with his well known sympathies to Islam.

It was announced at the time Charles & Camilla got married that she would not be permitted to be granted the title of "Queen", and would be referred to as "Princess Consort". The same way that Phillip is referred to as Prince Consort.

The British public have still not forgiven him for his treatment of the ´People´s Princess´, Diana, Princess of Wales.

The point of the article is that, although Charles may become ´King of England´, he may never become ´Head of the Commonwealth´.

The Queen may overlook the plain fact that Charles is a lightweight simply because he is her son. But she will not overlook the fact that he disposed of Diana and chose Camille, whom the Brits overwhelmingly despise, including most especially the queen herself.
She may very well decide that the future of the monarchy is not worth the risk of handing it off to a pair quite capable of destroying it.

Prince Charles--- who by the way has a lot more sense than airhead Prince Harry--- should rightfully get the throne, but a better idea would be to abolish the monarchy after the Queen passes. None of her heirs has the sense of duty and responsibility that the Queen has or her parents had. These princelings want the celebrity/rock star lifestyle, let them pay for it out of their own purses.

The Senate Ethics Committee offered a brutal rebuke of New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez on Thursday, accusing the Democrat of providing political favors for a friend in exchange for expensive gifts and vacations. “The Committee concludes that your actions violated Senate Rules and related statutes, and reflected discredit upon the Senate,” reads a bi-partisan letter from the ethics panel’s six members. The committee, with Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson as chair, ordered Menendez to repay the fair market value of gifts he received from his friend, a Florida eye doctor, Salomon Melgen, and to amend his public financial disclosure reports.

BEIJING (CBSNewYork) — China is rolling out a high-tech plan to give all of its 1.4 billion citizens a personal score, based on how they behave. But there are consequences if a score gets too low, and for some that’s cause for concern, CBS2’s Ben Tracy reported Tuesday. When Liu Hu recently tried to book a flight, he was told he was banned from flying because he was on the list of untrustworthy people. Liu is a journalist who was ordered by a court to apologize for a series of tweets he wrote and was then told his apology was insincere. “I can’t

Professor Writes About
‘Talking Erotically to Plants’

Posted By: konocti95- 4/18/2018 9:27:01     Post Reply
University of Michigan Professor Sarah Ensor published an academic journal article this month that argues that humans should establish erotic relationships with plants. Originally highlighted by the Twitter account New Real Peer Review, Ensor’s journal article explores the field of “ecosexuality,” a term which means the sexual relationship between humans and plants. Advocates in the field argue that the Earth needs to be treated with love. In addition to reducing harmful environmental practices, ecosexuals believe that humans should physically make love to the Earth. Ensor, an English professor at the University of Michigan, begins by citing the “Ecosex Manifesto,” which

Congress may ban the slaughter of cats and dogs to sell as meat or for human consumption and punish offenses with a year in prison and a $2,500 fine. The House Committee on Agriculture approved by voice vote an amendment to the farm bill Wednesday that would make all sales of domesticated canines and felines illegal, Politico reported. “Adopting this policy signals that the United States will not tolerate the disturbing practice in our country,” California Republican Rep. Jeff Denham said in a statement as he introduced the amendment. Some believed the ban unnecessary, as eating dogs and cats is rare in the

This weekend, days before President Donald Trump arrived at his Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla., porn star Stephanie Clifford — better known as "Stormy Daniels" — performed at a strip club across town, even inspiring a protest on Saturday. Clifford performed less than five miles east of the "Winter White Hous,e" Mar-a-Lago, at the Ultra Gentlemen´s Club in West Palm Beach. The club also lies between Trump International Golf Club and Mar-a-Lago. The club announced her performance last month. The porn star is leading a "Make America Horny Again" tour to draw attention to her alleged affair with President Trump.

Jefferson, IA — The city of Jefferson has come up with a solution that involves shooting cats to control the population. There are multiple feral cat colonies in the central Iowa town, and the city claims shooting the animals is its only option. "Cats don´t belong outside," Jefferson City Councilman Matt Wetrich said. "There´s research showing hundreds of millions of birds in the U.S. alone." Wetrich is a naturalist by trade and knows what feral cats do to an ecosystem. But he also knows the attachment so many people have to the furry creatures, which is why he admits the city´s policy of

Here´s one for all the parents out there: Is it OK to let your child eat peanut butter at Target? A mother on a New York parenting blog wrote Monday that while shopping at the store, she gave her four-year-old daughter a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and "a woman stopped me to lecture me about peanut allergies." The child´s mother then asked other moms on UrbanBaby if it was now unacceptable to eat peanut butter in public. If your reaction is of course not, it´s a free country, you are definitely siding with the minority. The anti-peanut butter backlash was swift and brutal.

A French historian specializing in World War II history was sentenced to nearly a year in prison for stealing dog tags belonging to U.S. servicemen who perished in a plane crash during WWII, officials announced Tuesday.

DeHays reportedly carried out the thefts during his visits to the research room between 2012 and 2017 and used his researcher ID to gain access to the artifacts. Archivist of the

The sperm – carried to the station on Elon Musk’s SpaceX Falcon 9 – will be the subject of a number of experiments to see how space and low gravity affect male sex cells. Astronauts onboard the ISS will thaw the frozen sperm to see if sex in space would lead to successful reproduction. The scientific study is part of NASA’s Micro-11 mission, which contains samples of frozen human and bull sperm. Once the Falcon 9´s Dragon resupply capsule has completed the first stage of the journey and has docked, research will begin on the samples. NASA hopes to understand how micro-gravity affects the

A new survey has found that a third of young millennials in the U.S. aren’t convinced the Earth is actually round. The national poll reveals that 18 to 24-year-olds are the largest group in the country who refuse to accept the scientific facts of the world’s shape. YouGov, a British market research firm, polled 8,215 adults in the United States to find out if they ever believed in the “flat Earth” movement. Only 66 percent of young millennials answered that they “always believe the world is round.” Science teachers across the U.S. will be shaking their heads after learning that nine

McCain acknowledged in January 2017 that he delivered a dossier of “sensitive information” to then-FBI Director James Comey. In his upcoming book, "The Restless Wave," McCain wrote that he "did what duty demanded I do" in passing on the documents. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain said, according to excerpts of the book published

In a recent 90-minute speech at St. Olaf College (no word if Rose Nylund is an alumna), Chomsky declared that he knows the biggest threat to the world. And boy, is it a doozy! So, is the truest threat to the world North Korea? Is it Iran or ISIS? How about Russia or China? Nope. According to Chomsky, nuclear war and climate change are pretty scary, but the big threats

Kelly Sadler, a special assistant in the White House, is accused of mocking John McCain on Thursday. McCain, the Republican senator from Arizona, is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer. Two unnamed sources told The Hill that Sadler took issue with McCain´s criticism of President Donald Trump´s CIA nominee, Gina Haspel, allegedly dismissing the ailing McCain, saying "he´s dying anyway." McCain on Wednesday said that Haspel is unfit to run the CIA because she would not say definitively that torture is immoral. That issue is one of several that have made Haspel´s journey toward Senate confirmation an uphill battle.

WASHINGTON – President George W.

The price of greatness is responsibilities.

For eight years, the sane-minded of America suffered under a socialist-minded Barack Obama who scoffed law, mocked the Constitution and destroyed all that mattered on pretty near all matters tied to virtue, tradition, humble service and competent leadership. Now Donald Trump has come and with just over a year of leadership, has steadily and surely begun to repair what Obama broke. He’s dismantling the previous administration’s dismantling, so to speak. Veni, vidi, vici. He’s come, he’s seen and he’s definitely, most definitely in the very throes of conquering.

A former Democratic congressman from Chicago, heading to prison for the third time, says he has “given up on America” and plans to move to Africa after he serves his latest sentence. At his sentencing Thursday, Mel Reynolds, 66, got six months in prison for failing to file tax returns on more than $400,000 he received for consulting work. He also received a scolding from federal Judge Robert Gettleman, who told the Harvard graduate he could recall thinking to himself in the early 1990s that Reynolds had tremendous promise. “It's a tragedy that you squandered the opportunities you had and the type of person you could have become,"
