Original Article

Canada will stop contributing to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s security costs “in the coming weeks,” a government spokesman has said. Canada has been paying some of the costs for the duke and duchess since last October. A statement given to Yahoo News U.K. from the Office of the Minister of Public Safety in Canada read: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex choosing to relocate to Canada on a part-time basis presented our government with a unique and unprecedented set of circumstances.(Snip ) The assistance will cease in the coming weeks, in keeping with their change in status.”

But, but, but...what Meghan wants, Meghan gets, right? She could have had a gravy train for life and a place on a pedestal as a "person of color" in an ever-changing Great Britain. I know she doesn't have to worry about where her next meal is coming from but she is coming down in the world. She is not a spring chicken and her shelf life will be short for being some kind of centerpiece for the Hollywood in-crowd. As for Harry, he could be following in the footsteps of his great-great uncle, the short-term King Edward. A pitiful existence with a domineering woman and "friends" who think it's cool to drop his name in conversation at the club.

How may security guards from the UK have to follow them around - absent from their families for a long time? Don't H & M care that they may be the cause of family discontent and hardship? I'm sure they can afford to hire their own security detail within the areas they chose to live or visit and use those in the UK when/if they return.

Why do these two losers even need security??? Seriously, nobody cares about them. He is a minor royal way down the line for the throne. She is a spoiled little American Femi-Nazi witch. They had a gravy train for life on the British taxpayer's dime. But Meghan wanted to be the 2nd coming of Princess Dianah -- the 21 century femi-Nazi princess. Instead, the British people hated her and saw her as pushy obnoxious American.

Remember, both MOOoochelle and Shillary visited them while the President was in town and they didn't attend his visit. Let them help you figure it out.

Harry has embarrassed himself, his grandmother, his family and his country with this pathetic self-serving scheme cooked up by his manipulative wife. When you turn your back on your family and country, it usually does not go well for you. Let them twist in the wind. Harry is just another fool who let a woman ruin his life. They are pretty much representative of their generation though. They are entitled whiners who have no shame, no desire to actually work for a living, and want to harangue everyone else about climate change when they are huge hypocrites. What a fall from grace. He was well loved by his country, respected for his military service and duties he performed and he threw it all away on a little social climbing tart.

What Harry and Meghan don't realize is the American people don't see them as "Royal". We see them as Harry and Meghan, no different from any other person in this country. The rest of us don't have security details following us around 24/7, so why should they. If they feel they need security THEY should pay for it themselves. If and when they are in the UK, I'm sure the Queen will see to it they have security (because they ARE seen as Royals there)! So far, we Americans are not impressed with Meghan and Harry! We don't want to pay the Bill so they can go flitting here and there, having a gay life because they think they are better than the rest of us! They should get over themselves!

I believe the Queen was distressed rather than embarrassed. She has nothing to be embarrassed about. Harry is 35 years old, did not listen to his brother (and probably others) who thought he should take his time about marrying MM. The Queen handled it swiftly and admirably. I don’t see any reason why she would be “embarrassed”. Once a young person sets their mind on something, it is very difficult for family to do anything - whether royals or commoners. Parents do the best they can with their children, then turn them loose to find their own way. Sometimes it works out better than others.

Meghan Markle 'snubbed' for Disney role

Meghan Markle is said to have been snubbed by Disney for being a "controversial figure," following reports her agent was finding her a Hollywood role with the film company. The Duchess of Sussex, 38, is believed to be trying to get herself back into acting as she and husband Prince Harry start their new life, after they stepped down from royal duties. Responding to speculation, an unnamed film executive has revealed there are "limited plans" for Meghan to secure a big role - after she allegedly told her agent to find her a superhero role with Marvel.
Buttigieg Drops Out… 8 replies

Pete Buttigieg, aka Alfred E. Newman, has suspended his bid for the Presidency. (Snip)The move to drop out makes sense within the most likely Club pattern to support Joe Biden. Buttigieg drops out now ahead of Super-Tuesday allowing less fragmentation of the vote. It will be interesting to see if he follows a Club plan to endorse Joe Biden because Buttigieg previously wrote high praise for Bernie Sanders. Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar will stay-in to block Bernie’s delegate count in Massachusetts and Minnesota respectively (both states vote on Super Tuesday). Klobuchar will likely drop-out after Tuesday. Warren might follow.

In the South Carolina primary on Saturday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign died. It wasn’t from smallpox-tainted blankets, but from lack of votes.

Few statements are more revealing of ignorance than the standard conservative indictment of socialism for “equally spreading poverty.” According to this critique, poverty happens when socialism’s insistence on equality of conditions deprives people of the incentive to work. Such statements so offend reality as to lead one to ask whether those who make them have ever opened their eyes in a socialist country. No. Socialism makes for the most radical of inequalities among human beings, and enforces them through the state’s absolute power.

SUMTER, S.C. — In October, Pete Buttigieg said he would do better with South Carolina’s black voters once they got to know him better. When he came back in December, he was still working on introducing himself to the black electorate. And in late January he admitted he was scared that at his rallies in South Carolina, where 60 percent of the Democratic electorate is black, most attendees were white. Those fears were borne out on Saturday, when Mr. Buttigieg was trounced in South Carolina’s primary and earned just two percent of the vote from African-Americans, according to early exit polling.

The South Carolina primary has been called for Joe Biden. This isn’t a surprise. South Carolina, with its large number of black voters, has always been seen as Biden’s firewall, but early returns suggest that his margin may be impressive. Bernie Sanders apparently is finishing second. Possibly the most important fact about today’s vote is that none of the Sanders/Biden alternatives showed any perceptible strength. Michael Bloomberg didn’t participate. There has never been a moment during the campaign when I have taken Biden seriously as a candidate for the Democratic nomination, let alone the presidency. Despite today’s win, his decrepitude seems to be accelerating. No doubt you have seen reports

Conservatives have been trying for decades to create an immigration system that rewards immigrants who won’t be a burden on society and discourages those who will. The Trump administration this week began enforcing the “public charge” rule, giving U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services the authority to refuse green cards — the key step on the path to citizenship — to people who have used a wide range of nonemergency welfare programs. “The main reason this got done is because we have a president who is determined enough to make self-sufficiency matter again in a meaningful way,” said Ken Cuccinelli, who pushed through the rule as acting chief of USCIS

After Joe Biden finished an astonishing fourth in Iowa and then in fifth place in New Hampshire, I wrote a postmortem for his campaign. It now looks like one of the most wrong things I have ever written. It was pointed out to me after I published that I described Biden’s campaign in the past tense, something I did not plan or realize beforehand. It simply seemed obvious nobody could come back from such a catastrophe — least of all Joe Biden. After Biden's South Carolina victory, the first primary he has ever won in his three presidential campaigns, things look quite different. The status of Biden’s campaign has not only been upgraded to “alive” — at this point he is the primary, and probably the sole, alternative to Bernie Sanders.
