'Bare minimum': Britain decides no palace
stay or parliamentary speech for
Trump in low-key state visit

Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 6/1/2019 12:41:08 PM

Opening his speech to British parliamentarians in 2011, President Barack Obama said, “I have known few greater honors than the opportunity to address the Mother of Parliaments at Westminster Hall." It is an honor that will not be extended to President Trump next week during his first state visit to Britain, one of a number of differences from the trips made by his predecessors. British and American officials have played down concerns about protests and insist that Trump is being afforded every bit of the usual hospitality — from dinner with the queen to bilateral talks with Theresa May, the prime minister.

Cowardly fools, bowing to the will of their barbarian invaders and domestic traitors, thus further enabling the slide toward "Mediocre (no longer Great) Britain". Someday their children and grandchildren will erect a statue of President Trump in Trafalgar Square alongside that of Horatio Nelson, for awakening and saving their country as well as Western Civilization.

I love our president! To Parliament he is a loose cannon. Because the Brits were deeply involved in the Russiagate thing; I believe they are afraid he will call them out in public while addressing their body.

More fools they. But this is NOT a first as I recall a vast number of upper class Brits (Lady Antonia Fraser, she of the multiple beds, etc.) writing a letter demanding Americans NOT vote for Bush. (I also recall how they loved the bowing Obama, whose gift to the Queen was DVR's of his speeches, in the wrong format!)

The Russia Hoax started here in GB with MI6 and some others in academia. I'm sure most of you have read the various post about this subject here on Lucianne. The Brits have bought into the sexism and racism crap that has been spread by our disgusting MSM. The Brits have insulted him and his family, and us, with this snub. Well, let me say this.The world will take a few more turns and the Donald will have the last word. When will the idiots of the world learn not to mess with Trump.

Sorry brits. This will NOT distress Mr.and Mrs Trump. They live in a 2 story apt decorated in 24 carat gold, on the top of a 30+ story building THAT THEY OWN. The Queen’s crappy cement building only a few stories high AND that has to continually be scrubbed of the soot, belongs to the British people. If the brits ever get rid of the Monarchy others will be using it for a vacation home. Don’t think Mr. and Mrs Trump are going to waste much time missing the opportunity to stay there!

The Examiner shows its true lefty roots. I thought that after Obama and the Mooch and their security demands and helicopter landings, no American president would ever be invited to stay at the Palace. I am fine with what will happen. And if there were some snubs, we can ignore them. Americans have long memories. And having licked them when it mattered, hundreds of years ago, we can afford to be bigger than they.

What number of Brits dislike Trump vs. the number of Americans who voted for him? I wonder if Harry will be cordial, aloof, disproving or absent from any function President & Mrs. Trump attend. If he can't put on his outwardly gracious manner, he should stay home with his wife and new baby.

Some former American Presidents have tried to gain prestige from these visits to the Brits. Our current President has made his own way into the highest ranks of international finance. Rubbing shoulders with dissolute royalty brings no positives, nor does pandering to a shabby Parliament so so pathetically at odds with its own people. The Windsors can’t seem to keep their own house in order—-why should our good President give a second thought to what they think? The seed is running pretty thin with the Hanoverians these days.

Why is he going? President Trump is going to the UK for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings to represent the USA, where thousands of American, British, and Canadian military members gave their lives for their countries in the Allied effort to defeat the Nazis.

The people of Great Britain are in turmoil over Brexit and view trade with the US as their safety net y separate from Europe. Their government is controlled by opponents of Brexit. One wonders if these calculated insults directed toward DJT are intended to provoke him to make some angry statement that would undermine support for Brexit. Of course our president supports Brexit and is far too smart for such games.

England was a great country through history and through the service of Winston Churchill. Like so many European countries, sadly declined since. Presently reading “The Gathering Storm”, written by Churchill following WW11. Much of the present world attitude resembles the British attitude following WW1. Just ignore it and it will go away. President Trump resembles Churchill in having his eyes open.

This just tells me the Brits can't control their anarchists and Muslim immigrants. It is a sad commentary on the British situation more than it is an insult to our president. I do think it is outrageous that the royal family would knuckle under to pressure and not invite the Trumps to stay at the palace. I guess all they are good for is giving speeches and cutting ribbons at immigrant welcome centers.

A decision to not cap the total amount of property that homeless people can keep on Skid Row was announced last Wednesday and it sparked fury among some officials who say it will ‘only perpetuate the public health crisis that already exists’ there. That, coupled with the news a Los Angeles police detective has been diagnosed with typhoid fever, has sparked concern among LA’s residents.

She had said Trump was “misogynistic” and “divisive,” adding that she would move to Canada if he won the election.He was not told what Markle had said, but the President sidestepped the snare laid by the reporter and replied simply, “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”Markle has since moved to England after marrying Prince Harry, but apparently, her distaste for President Trump remains,

Kamala Harris’ first significant political role was an appointment by her powerful then-boyfriend Willie Brown, three decades her senior, to a California medical board that has been criticized as a landing spot for patronage jobs and kickbacks. Then 30, Harris was dating 60-year-old Willie Brown, at the time the Democratic speaker of the California State Assembly, when he placed her on the California Medical Assistance Commission in 1994. The position paid over $70,000 per year, $120,700 in current money, and Harris served on the board until 1998. The medical commission met twice a month, and Harris, a United States senator for California since 2017 and now a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate,

Oh, this is rich…. Shifty and hyper-partisan Adam Schiff, quite possibly the world’s slimiest human, writes a letter (as below) to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, demanding legislative branch authority over executive branch declassification. The scale of obtuse, hypocritical and self-serving protestation is off-the-charts.First, the executive branch controls the declassification process unilaterally. The legislative branch can request briefings; and customarily the executive informs the ‘gang of eight’ (when needed) on matters of intelligence releases. However, the legislative branch has no authority over the independent decisions/purposes of the executive in

This year, he relocated to a jungle in India. "I've put America behind me," Haag, 29, said. Today he lives in a concrete house in the village of Uchakkada for $50 a month. His backyard is filled with coconut trees and chickens. "I saw four elephants just yesterday," he said, adding that he hopes never to set foot in a Walmart again. More than 9,000 miles away from

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s campaign has come a long way from its humble roots. Over the past few weeks, Buttigieg has brought on a host of new staffers to bolster his rapidly growing operation. The campaign recently snagged Hillary for America alum George Hornedo as national delegate director. And, with a swagger more often seen in Silicon Valley startups, it’s even hired something called a “chief innovation officer” — former Google senior engineer Ann Mei Chang — and a creative director, Obama White House alum Jillian Maryonovich. The campaign has also bolstered its communications staff, led by hard-charging

President Trump and his defenders can successfully attack former Special Counsel Robert Mueller or congressional Democrats on impeachment – but not both. The independent voters who will decide the 2020 election don’t have time for multiple sets of arguments. Moreover, independent voters have limited interest in all things political.
