A whiny Meghan Markle retreats
when the Queen bans her
use of the royal name

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 2/22/2020 5:30:27 AM

On Tuesday, news broke that the Queen had banned Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from marketing the “Sussex Royal” brand. Friday morning, another story broke, saying that Meghan was whining about this because she and Harry had already invested money in selling themselves. Also on Friday, the Queen won and Meghan backed down. Queen Elizabeth comes from a generation that holds that you can’t eat your cake and have it. In other words, when you make choices, you have to take both the benefit and the burden of that choice. Meghan Markle, on the other hand, is a child of the Veruca Salt generation.

No way I would allow those two to associate themselves with the Royal Family. Talk about Brand Dilution!

'sno white is lucky the Queen didn't send the Royal Huntsman to pay her a visit. For their brand, might I suggest: sub ex-royal.

Any day now Meghan is going to turn her anger and disappointment on her once-royal husband and it will be all over. Responsibility does not take hold in those of her breeding. Only then will our suffering end.

I can't help but wander in my thoughts that Hallmark is becoming part of the Hollywood crowd. Seems like actors and actresses sit atop their "high and mighty horses" and think everyone else is a deplorable. I apply that thinking to a majority of people who work for the government.

Harry sold his birthright for nothing more than a harpy gold digger whom he will never be able to satisfy. She abandoned her family and now has torn this miserable weak whiner of a man from his family, heritage and duty that gave his life purpose. What a fool some men are in the face of a greedy manipulative woman. He will eat humble pie sometime in the future when he returns to the royal fold. It has already cost him his self-respect but that break up will costs hundreds of millions. What a foolish man child. Making a laughingstock of yourself on the world stage has to hurt. He allowed a strumpet to disrespect his grandmother, the royal family, and his nation.

What the Queen gives, she can take away. The lineage folks at the palace twisted themselves into pretzels to rationalize a title for the Duchess, but it sure as heck wasn't based on blood lines. Harry will always be in the House of Windsor; Markle however had her meal ticket taken away by the simple act of withdrawing a proprietary title. I think the message is Harry can return to status quo if he dumps the low-class foreigner.

It seems as though she wanted the perks of royalty but didn't want to do the work (which can be terribly boring), or obey the rules. That's not how it goes and I am sad to see Harry whom I liked very much caught up in Meghan's web.

The Queen made a good decision. After Meghan and Harry get a legal divorce. Prince Harry will be reinstated into the royal family. It's obvious what Meghan is up to. She's has Harry on a leash, especially now with baby Archy. Read they just bought a house in Malibu. She can't wait to get back into the swing of things. I'm with #9 ... 18 months.

Did Prince Harry think Meghan was a famous actress in the US? Few had ever heard of her before she became involved with Harry. Now she has what she always wanted—fame. Does anyone else think Harry may be a bit dim?

Breeding? Whose—Meghan’s or Harry’s? Harry’s mother was a bit unstable, his father has some weird ideas, his great-great-uncle David abdicated the throne for an American divorcee—sound familiar? Meghan seems narcissistic, for sure, but it’s not because she has inferior “breeding.”

Nouveau-riche talent-deprived little diva, who keeps reminding us she's BI-racial to stave off criticism (shades of Barry-O), thinks she can undo centuries of tradition via millennial whining and virtue signaling. God save the Queen, indeed. As for #6, I usually do not post anything for other posters, but there are 1,000's of people in government who are decent and extremely hard-working; just go look for them. It's too bad the rotten apples always get the attention and smear the rest of us.

The end of this marriage couldn't come fast enough for the royals. Hopefully Harry is coming to his senses and sees what a mess he's created by marrying this leach. I wonder just how much Harry wanted to move out of England. I'll bet Meghan said we can live in both places just to get Harry to go along with the whole affair. First it was live in Canada. Now the story is they're looking at a mansion in Hollywood. As their whole plan begins to unravel, idiot Harry might just wake up and realize what a horrible mistake he made getting involved with this person.

#12,#26- Aside from impacting the royal family, their decision has quite likely impacted the families of their security team by taking them away from their immediate families and country to “protect” the lives of two people wanting independence and personal freedom--thereby “sentencing” their security team to “tours of duty” somewhat akin to military service. Although Harry is part and parcel of the decision, it seemed clear for a long time that Harry felt lost with seeing his brother and friends marrying and having children, while he could not seem to find someone willing to join the royal family therein making him very vulnerable to the possibility of being ensnared by a scheming woman.

After Meghan suckers Harry into becoming a resident of the environs of Hollywood, California, remember California is a “community property” State where a couple’s assets are usually split right down the middle during divorce proceedings. Meghan will have the obviously p-whipped Harry by the “huevos” in divorce proceedings. That’s when the real gold digger games will commence.

If Harry consents to a house in Malibu then he is OK with the possibility, should they divorce, of costing him 1/2 the fortune he inherited from his mother and any money he gets from all other areas. However, I don't know if divorce laws are any ''better'' in Canada or the UK. He certainly appears sullen while she smiles broadly. Who is going to raise the baby? I have to believe they have the best eye doctor treating Archy's lazy eye, a condition & treatment you don't want to put off.

You know how some women have what's referred to as "Daddy issues"? Rusty, I mean Harry, seems to have "Mommy issues" and it's no wonder considering what happened to his mother as well as growing up in such a sheltered atmosphere. His choice of such a demanding, manipulative wife makes this clear.

#30, it becomes clearer by the day that Harry has psychological problems since a very young age. He was not a good student even with tutors. He couldn't attend a university for the same reason. He was sent to the military for a while because the family thought the rigor and discipline was going to be good for him. All the English roses he had as girlfriends saw the true Harry and, one by one, said thanks but no thanks. His mental stage and obsession with his mother - call it Oedipus complex - has become out of control as time went by. Now is the excuse for any behavior. If and when he divorces the trailer trash and returns to England, he should be sent to the Tower with a team of psychiatrists to try to straighten his mind. I think his mental instability could send him the route of anti depressants and suicide. He won't be the first one. I feel sorry for William. It will be a problem for him when he becomes king. I applaud HM The Queen. Crown and Country comes first. These two are expendable.

Under normal circumstances who cares about this couple and their nonsense. BUT, how the Queen is handling this situation is a much needed example of pushing back with a velvet glove. Meggie thought and was probably advised by her handlers, Moochelle, Oprah and others, she could have her cake and eat it too. And for much of the Hollywood, Moochelle and Oprah crowd they can. But, comes along the Queen with her history of service to her country, through WWII, the Cold War, Terrorism both the IRA and Islamic, the death of her daughter-in-law and now this B-lister actress. And with perfect grace and strength says NO, I don't care who you are or more importantly who you THINK you are, but you cannot have your cake and eat it too. Ya gotta love that. And a nice little lesson for Moochelle and Oprah and all of that Hollywood ILK.

This is a tale, not of two cities, but of two states, and two governors.

Both states are reopening in a similar fashion, taking baby steps rather than a full gallop. One state is Georgia, the other is Colorado.

The Guardian calls the decision racist with this headline, “Georgia's Covid-19 reopening pits white governor against black mayors.” CNN parrots the racist angle with this headline, “Black leaders say reopening Georgia is an attack on people of color.”

Friday morning, Joe Biden sat down for an interview with Mika Brzezinski on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Mika asked some hard-hitting questions about Tara Reade’s allegation that Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993. Biden looked unusually alert and tracked fairly well for most of the interview until he got tired and confused (at the 14-minute mark). More disturbing than that, though, were the misrepresentations and elisions that made it appear as if he were answering the questions when, in fact, he wasn’t. Most surprisingly, Biden insisted that it would be better for him if nobody could see his records before the election.

Key to the ambush interview of Lt. Gen.

Flynn had to be caught off guard and without legal counsel for the entrapment plan to work (snip) McCabe had a personal animus towards Flynn which goes way back, possibly originating in Flynn’s offer to be a witness in a legal proceeding filed against McCabe.

It is an increasingly common statement, in comments sections, in social media posts and from callers on talk radio programs, “I think I had COVID-19 back in [name your month].” This is an important phenomenon for public policy. If they believed the experts, if they trusted what their governments had told them, then would people make that statement? Governments around the world saw COVID-19 start in early March and shuttered their economies, claiming it necessary to stop its spread. To ponder if one had COVID-19 before March is to doubt that narrative, and that pondering is amplified by those who tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies.

Unsealed internal FBI documents reveal that top FBI officials conspired to set up General Michael Flynn to “get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired.” The fact that these documents only turned up now is just one part of the DOJ’s and FBI’s Russia hoax, an ongoing effort to stage a coup against the Trump administration. The DOJ’s and FBI’s malicious prosecution against Flynn consisted of withholding exculpatory information (including the material discussed here), threatening without cause to prosecute Flynn’s son to force Flynn to plead guilty, and blackmailing Flynn’s attorneys into working against him.

And in doing so, Abrams has proved why she’s not. Abrams’s media tour began back in February when Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, first mentioned his campaign was looking at Abrams. When asked if she’d want the job, Abrams didn’t shy away.

(Tweet/Video) Lemon complained about Trump attacking his critics and tweeting over the weekend instead of dealing with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic during his show on Sunday.
