Over the last one hundred years, the British Royal Family has generously provided the world with a parade of scandals more colorful and louder than the socks they wear with their kilts. But the Meghan and Harry rupture is fundamentally different from any previous crisis to befall the British monarchy. (Snip) The roadside bomb in the royal family named Meghan Markle exploded not because of immoral conduct in the conventional sense. Markle is the first duchess who hails from the American left-wing, post-Christian, anti-moral belief system that worships the journey of self-directed personal actualization.


This is pretty perceptive.

Excellent analysis of two spoiled brats. Harry is not the only person in the world who tragically lost a mother. He is just so emotionally unstable that he can't move on. His mother knew he was unstable; he inherited it from both sides. Meghan just took advantage of that and is using him to further her career. Hollywood now puts her on the same level as George and Amal. She wants money and power. She will leave him in a minute when he is no longer useful to her. Archie is just a weapon to get what she wants. The Queen needs to think long and hard about handing the reins over to that mess called Prince Charles. Prince William will make a stronger king for England.

There may be a lot of overthinking going on here. My best guess is that Meghan, very early on, saw the opportunity to monetizr royal connections, and acted accordingly. And to get the biggest bang for her buck, she had to draf the putrid prince out of England. They will now mingle with American royalty - the Clintons, the Kennedys, and even the Bushes. And they won't have to wear those silly clothes and ride on pooping horses while commoners stare at them. And Meghan will pick up a bunch of gigs that she would not have otherwise gotten, while Prince Stupid will find appointments to various Boards of Directors, to make his living. And life will go on.

Harry is a weakling. We should all hope that someday he’ll reclaim his testicles and divorce that evil woman and take Archie with him. But then, why do we even care. We have Democrats to be concerned about.

FTA: Markle is the first duchess who hails from the American left-wing, post-Christian, anti-moral belief system that worships the journey of self-directed personal actualization. Her justification after only a few months of marriage for urging hubby away from his family? "It is not enough to survive, you have to thrive." ..... I thought this summed up a lot about her. Then there is this part also that explains the rest of her makeup. "She also has the extraordinary power to blackmail the royal family with the indictment of racism! It is widely reported that Markle has been acceding to the idea that she has been mistreated due to racism and that the royals fear being called racist in a "tell-all" interview." I see a lot of Michelle Obama in Mehgan. Both have this chip on their shoulder and want to show the world that they are going to be at the top and live a life of luxury with an aura of doing good by appearing at charity events. I hope the Royal Family can ride this out because she may be a bigger problem than Diana ever was!

Now that I have recovered from #11's post, I'll say this article gave me my first reason to care one iota about my distant relatives. I'm sure I'm on the succession list through the miracle of scientific notation. I have unfortunately become a student of narcissism and my bride and I are still figuring out what to do with the knowledge we gained by the scourge visited upon our own family. Second, this is just another example of how the morally bankrupt left destroys everything it comes in contact with and now they have a royal scalp on their lodge.

Sadly for Archie (the son -- can I call him that these days?), this marriage won't end well. Megxit is a brat of global proportions. I would LOVE -- LOVE -- LOVE -- to see an Absolutely Fabulous episode that includes comments from Patsy and Edina on Megxit. If you aren't familar with that Britcom, it's worth a look. Incredibly funny, but equally coarse. But bloody hilarious. Megxit -- I loathe her. She disgusts me. Really makes me sick.

Good article but I feel slimy just reading it. Meghan is a harridan. Harry is a wimpy dope. I get the feeling that Archie is going to be an emotionally abused child; being in Meghan's presence will be enough. I think it was delightful justice that they lose their titles and they have to pay back $3 million for Frogmore AND pay $468,00 in rent for a place that, according to Meghan, they will never come back to. If they decide not to pay rent, they would effectively be homeless in Briton. The "Firm" rubbed their face in it.

Bravo Queen Elizabeth II! I truly hope that Archie sees through it too and is welcomed back into the royal family, but I doubt it.

Harry & The Harridan, starring Megan Markle. The humorous story of a former princess struggling to become a billionaire in Los Angeles. This could be an ABC or NBC sitcom if the networks allowed Megan to be portrayed in a negative light. Portraying the character Harry as a bumbling, insecure male would be fine. Isn’t it time that the British retired the monarch? Or are these royal scandals, lavish weddings and public displays designed to make Americans think that the former British empire is intact?

Were there no beautiful girls in England who would not pollute the blood line? Or in all of Europe? Nowadays maybe not. Heck, even Kate's sister Pippa is quite the beauty, and she knows how to behave with class. Maybe she's married by now. Haven't kept up with it. In any case, the queen is not immune from the disappointment many of us feel at the garbage our grandkids drag home sometimes. It transcends income or status.

I am by no means a Meghan fan. But, the British press has been against her from before the first day. Just look at the different comments from the press of Meghan going something identical to what Kate Middleton had done. There are numerous instances if this author would have searched for them.

I confess I haven't put a lot of thought into this opinion and certainly haven't lost any sleep over the saga, but I think Harry was under pressure to find a wife and settle down. He unfortunately decided on this lovely b-list celebrity female who was happy to land a royal tiara, if not a crown. Harry's bad mistake was agreeing to be husband number 3 for the gold-digging Meghan. It will not end well for Meghan, but Queen Elizabeth will welcome Harry back with full honors and benefits as soon as his wife is gone. I have no idea who gets baby Archie.

Harry is a nice looking guy but not overly so. If he had not been who he was Miss Meghan would not have looked at him twice. Now she is counting on his celebrity and name recognition to rake in millions. If that doesn't pan out he is over and I am betting she sends the baby down the road with him.

I'm not convinced that M&H will be consorting long-term with the big cheeses. Harry is a lightweight, and clearly "whipped." Not many people respect that. Meghan was a B-actress who married well, then was too arrogant to make the most of her opportunity. They've both been thrown over the side by the royal family and won't be issuing invitations to Balmoral, Sandringham, or Buckingham Palace to their "friends." H&M probably get invitations to ceremonial events with the family, but no hangers on will be allowed. So....if you're an American suck who wants to consort with royals (God only knows why) and brag about it to your friends, who would you choose? The current Queen, the Prince of Wales, or William in Waiting, or the couple who kicked them in the teeth? At best, H&M in the future will be Rent-A-Royals - available to the highest bidder, people who will never be able to buy access with real royalty, or people who through their lack of class, guaranteed that they will never again run in royal circles (i.e. the Obamas).

No one ever mentions the bad decisions Diana made time after time in her life with and without Charles. I know she had emotional problems but those boys were growing up watching her destroy herself with selfish, love sick Charles (Camilla) not giving a hoot. (Charles messages to Camilla were doozies and those boys had to be horrified when those came out). Diana used the press to her advantage and loved the attention when it suited her. I loved Diana but she was a troubled soul and really could have made better decisions and gotten some better help for the sake of her sons. Charles is weak and, I’m sure, completely taken in by Meghan from the start. Harry is going to get old fast to Meghan by embarrassing her in front of her Hollywood friends. Still cannot believe H and M would do this to the 93 year old Queen. Meanwhile, I guess we will be encouraged to buy cheap socks, sweatshirts, coffee mugs, etc. with the royal Sussex brand stamp ‘for the children’. Meghan is going to be laughing all the way to the bank. No one will stop her because she is half black. See, we are all racists, we just need to be reminded again and again.

It's not just President Trump's tweets in Farsi. Complementing the president's rhetorical support for Iranian protesters, the U.S. government is engaged in less public programs to help Iranian protesters now taking to the streets. They provide the positive counterpoint to Trump's excesses, such as his recent threat to Iranian cultural sites. The critical point here is that this is about giving Iranians the tools to campaign for their own freedom and future, rather than interfering with Iranian domestic politics or instigating protests. The U.S. programs are not a 1953 coup part deux, but a provision to help those already on the streets struggle for their freedom.

More than 30% of inmates in Canadian prisons are Indigenous—even though aboriginal people make up just 5% of the country’s population, according to new figures released by a federal watchdog. In a scathing report published on Tuesday, the correctional investigator of Canada, Dr Ivan Zinger, described Indigenous overrepresentation in the country’s jails and prisons as “nothing short of a national travesty”. The figure is highest in the prairie provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, where Indigenous people make up 54% of the prison population.(Snip) Indigenous inmates also serve more of their sentence before being granted parole–and reoffend at much higher levels than non-indigenous inmates.

Former CIA agent Valerie Plame's status as a shoo-in to win a congressional seat in northern New Mexico is now deeply imperiled amid charges she's an outsider from Washington who knows too little about the district she seeks to represent. Plame is running in the Democratic primary to replace Democrat Ben Ray Lujan, the highest-ranking Hispanic lawmaker in the House, in the state's 3rd Congressional District, home to 15 Pueblo tribes and the Navajo and Jicarilla Apache nations, with a 41% Hispanic and 19% Native American population. Lujan, who has held the seat since 2009, announced a run for Senate in April last year, drawing prominent Hispanic candidates into the primary.

Some animal lovers and nervous fliers may squawk but the US government wants a definitive “neigh” to the question of passengers bringing rabbits, turtles, birds, miniature horses and other unusual emotional support animals on planes in future, especially free of charge. Even cats could be running out of lives to while away under passengers’ seats at 30,000 feet. The US Department of Transportation on Wednesday proposed that only specially trained dogs qualify as service animals, which must be allowed in a passenger plane cabin at no charge. Airlines may be able to let passengers bring other animals on board, but hefty fees would apply.

Al Gore flubbed the name of activist Greta Thunberg as he tried to commend her as a leader of the movement to tackle climate change, a cause he has long championed. "When morally-based, social revolutions gain the momentum necessary when the young generation takes on the cost," the former vice president said at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. "Greta Thunberry, and she is quick to deflect to all of the others who have followed her lead and joined her in leading — this is a global phenomenon." Gore, 71, also tweeted out a photo with Thunberg on Wednesday. "Great
