Five Reasons Meghan Markle May Not
Have Got on With Britain All That Well

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 1/13/2020 3:16:38 PM

Prince Harry and Princess Meghan astounded the world — and the Royal family, apparently — when they announced they were giving up on their senior royal duties and decamping to Canada. In fact, Meghan has gone already — appearing to leave Harry to pick up the pieces at home. And it’s a shame, because the UK really did seem ready to embrace its new American princess when the pair tied the knot in a fairytale wedding at Windsor in 2018. Furthermore, the British people really do support the monarchy and do tend to cut them a lot of slack. So what could possibly have gone wrong? –All those flights–


“All those flights” is just the first on the list. Author knows the territory...

Oliver, she’s not a princess. She wanted that title but the queen, in her great wisdom, refused and gave her the title of duchess.

To address the comment of the O.P., he has hair, and he looks like he's part of the Windsor security detail, not a Windsor. Must be the spawn of one of Diana's, uh, evenings out. Speaking of out, my favorite saying 'breeding will out' might just apply here. It certainly is lacking in the Duchess of Sleazeux, er, Sussex.

Sounds like Meghan is just a typical Hollyweird celebrity; entitled, whiny, obnoxious, and hypocritical. She is also using Archie as leverage/punishment, keeping him from the rest of the family. What does that say about her? Is that why she got pregnant so quickly? Harry, being a typical husband is trying to keep the wife happy but Meghan is far more high maintenance than most. He is being pushed in directions that he will come to regret in years to come.

It is far easier for a royal to act like trash than for trash to act like a royal. You might pick up a bar floozy and enjoy the romp, but you don't take her home to meet the family and you certainly don't marry her. This is why.

Nasty whiny witch, cannot grasp that the Royals have a their own ways, many very historic. And the whole thing about being rude to the servants is so low class and Markle. A relative has done corporate charter pilot work, and met some very, very wealthy folks in the process of flying them around the world on expensive jets. He says some are nice people, others "treat you like furniture". I am sure that Markle is one of the 'treat them like furniture' types. Harry will regret his poor choice, no doubt about it.

In typical "no nothing" hollywood she and her Husband Prince Stupid announce that they will go to Canada until President Trump is out of office, after all it's about three quarters of the voting public that love him and it may be 80% after the recent Iranian dust up and the Prosperity he has helped to create through wise negotiations. I truly hope the American public minus the also no nothings in Hollywood will give her the cold shoulder when she steps into the spotlight.

My advice is if you don't like reading about the current royal flap, stop clicking on the links. Like poster above said, some of it is hilarious. We don't often get the curtain pulled back to this extent. At times I feel I shouldn't be watching. But since the mid-1940's my sister and I would play ''princesses'' just from watching the news reels in the movie theaters. It was great fun, practicing tea.

The Royal family is becoming increasingly irrelevant. They are only fit for the gossip news papers at the grocery checkout and have been that way since about 1960. The whole family is just Britain's hobby play toy.

This is scary stuff. Markle is mixed in with Hillary, Obama and her lawyer is friends with Hillary. If they make the millions they expect to make, Hillary will have an in with British royalty like she does with all the FBI files she illegally read when Bill became president. Markle is being used by these people and if she were paying attention, she'd remember what happened to Diana. The Queen always gets what she wants.

I still believe that Harry still blames the rest of the royal family for his mother's death!!!!! And he chose Meghan to be his wife as a way to publicly embarrass the royals, and cause them all of the headaches that she is doing!!! Meanwhile, Meghan honestly believed she could take her American attitudes and femi-Nazi ideals, and the British people would fall in love with her as the "21st century feminist princess" and the "second coming of Diana"!!! Instead, they saw her as an obnoxious and rude American -- which is exactly what she is. Instead of the second coming of Diana, the British people see her for what she truly is: The second coming of Wallace Simpson!!!!! And that is not a good thing!!!!!

Apparently the head of "the firm" is looking to strip Harry and his duchess of their titles, in addition to all the family and government funding. When Princess Margaret was finally bluntly informed that she would no longer be a princess and would no longer have funding, she decided the future of living in military housing with Peter Townsend wasn't worth the sacrifice. Pay attention, Harry.

Attorney Sidney Powell announced Friday that she has a witness to exculpatory FBI notes (known as a 302) from former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s FBI interview with Peter Strzok and another agent. “We don’t have the original 302 that the FBI agents created and I’ve now found a witness who says the original 302 did in fact say that Flynn was honest with the agents and did not lie,” Powell,(Snip) told WMAL’s Larry O’Connor. “So for someone to delete that from the 302 is just beyond outrageous, but that is the only reason I can think of as to why it would have been deep-sixed,” she added.

Washington- President Donald Trump is adding three seasoned lawyers to his impeachment legal defense team, people familiar with the matter said, including Kenneth Starr, the hard-charging prosecutor whose work led to President Bill Clinton's impeachment. Alan Dershowitz, the constitutional lawyer, and Robert Ray, Starr's successor at the Office of Independent Counsel during the Clinton administration, are also joining the team, the people said. The three are expected to join a legal team headed by White House counsel Pat Cipollone and outside attorney Jay Sekulow, who are still expected to deliver statements on the President's behalf on the Senate floor.

McConnell had each senator sign the oath book with a single pen, a day after Pelosi came under fire for smiling and handing out special pens to members following the signing of the articles of impeachment. This is in contrast to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, where each senator signed the book with a different pen.

The immigration debate in our country has been dominated by huge corporations who want more (and cheaper) workers and by liberal advocacy organizations who want America to take in as many people from developing nations as possible, partly for humanitarian reasons and partly to drive up the voter rolls for the Democrats. These dueling interests have dominated for decades and led to a permissive system with a large influx of new immigrants, both legal and illegal. In response, conservative voices have pushed back on what they see as overly open immigration policies. Lost in this policy debate is what we should really be focused on: what’s good for America.

James Carville says Trump is the greatest threat to America since the fall of communism. It is easy to laugh away such a declaration, but I think there is an invaluable truth expressed. Trump is as important in stature as the United States' most formidable military and political opponent of the twentieth century. Trumpism as an ideological force has the mass and acceleration of a Soviet Empire that threatened to conquer the world. Nobody speaks about the Bush Doctrine in such terms. Nobody confuses the Obama Doctrine or the Carter Doctrine as projecting that kind of power.

He put the fat in fatwa. A morbidly obese ISIS fanatic dubbed “Jabba the Jihadi” has been captured by Iraqi forces — who loaded him onto a flatbed truck because he couldn’t fit in a police car.

The jumbo jihadist was known for “provocative speeches against the security forces” and is considered one of the top leaders of “ISIS gangs,” Iraqi security officials said in a statement.
