Royal twit: Prince Harry declares our
First Amendment 'bonkers'

Original Article

Posted By: PageTurner, 5/16/2021 8:25:23 AM

Prince Harry seemed determined to outdo Meghan Markle on the obnoxious celebrity front. The oafish royal on the lam from his U.K. duties, who's now set up shop here to live the billionaire lifestyle, is now, like a lot of them, telling us how to run our country. He's calling our First Amendment 'bonkers.' Kid you not. According to the London Spectator (hat tip: Daily Caller), citing a podcast interview that Prince Harry made with the Davos-like Aspen Institute: I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers. I don’t want to start going down the

In other words, this jerk wants to say whatever he pleases and do away with our rights to say what we please. Go home and take that other self-absorbed untalented brat with you. You are going to end up being a man without a country. No one wants you or your selfish self centered wife. You talk about your upbringing; I feel sorry for your children. Bet you won't allow them to go to public schools or play with ordinary people. Shame on you for trashing your family. Your parents may not have been perfect but no child comes with instructions on how to raise them. Your brother is doing a great job with his children and for his country. Look to him for guidance instead of your mean self-centered wife. She will leave you in a minute once you are of no use to her.

Harry will soon be a man without a country and family. Britain doesn't want him and the U.S. doesn't either. Wifey, having gotten the money and status she needed from his royal family, will dump him to the curb like she did her first 2 husbands. He should have married Cressidia and lived happily ever after in Africa doing the humanitarian work he loved. The RF would have supported that. He thinks the Royal Family is like the Truman Show? Just wait until he sees just how bad L.A. is. What a piece of garbage this man-child is! And MM just keeps manipulating him more and more every day.

Harry went to some pretty exclusive schools. He should be able to read the First Amendment himself and understand it. If he can't understand it, here it is in a nutshell for him: the First Amendment is what allows you to spew your liberal tripe without getting kicked out of the US. It is what allows untalented B list actresses like your wife to continue working.

Poor beleaguered Harry loathes the stultifying and suffocating Royal Life in the UK. Instead of staying in HIS country and working to make reforms, he comes to our country and proceeds complain about our freedoms. He admits to not understand a whit about our First Amendment, but is quick to spout off every leftist anti-American ideology Meghan has been spoon feeding him. "Bonkers" is thy name, Harry.

He’s simply parroting what he hears in the Lefty circle he he has joined. There is a battle being waged against the 1st Amendment from the crowd and he is a useful stooge, for now. He does not seem to have any original thoughts. That said, I would have thought his wife, the future POTUS, could explain our Constitution to him.

Yo, Hank. We created the First Amendment in direct response to what one of your old kings did to repress people and keep them under his weak and anemic thumb. It is a correction and establishment of our rights. Not only are you stupid and pussywhipped but you don't even know your own history and the huge evil power that was once Great Britain.

I agree with #2. Except the fact that I don’t think that the English girl named in the posting would have wanted to live her life in some underdeveloped African Commonwealth country with Harry as he lived a do gooder life in whatever underdeveloped country that turned out to be. In fact think about the fact that Harry, if he was all there, could have had his pick of thousands of girls in the UK to marry him, but apparently there was no girl in all the UK who wanted to be married to Harry. That should tell you something right there. I think that once it came to light that Harry was intent on marrying Meghan, that the top Royals thought that Harry and Meghan would be happy to represent the Monarchy out among the Commonwealth countries especially in Africa. But as we can see Meghan had no intention of doing anything like that, but instead was intent on becoming just another Queen of Hollywood using Harry’s Royal title as her tool to get there. Is a political position ahead for Meghan? Maybe if the leftist Democrats can gerrymander a California Congressional District to her political favor, then if elected she could become a California copy of AOC. As for Harry, at this point he is certainly a man without a country.

Harry, I hope you will read the comments above because you just got your butt handed to you with a zeal I have only seen when O’Biden needs a beat down. You, man child that you are, are in desperate need of a few raps of a ruler across your knuckles because you were terribly rude which is something I believe your grandmother would not tolerate. You do not disparage the host country when you are a guest there. Bad form, old chap. Americans are very proud of the fact that we won our freedom from Great Britain. We took on the greatest army on the planet and kicked you Redcoats all the way across the ocean. We then proceeded to create the greatest country on earth and penned our founding documents on unheard of philosophy of God given rights and equality of man when you were still bowing and scraping to kings who abused their people. So, sonny boy, take you arrogant tripe and shove it! You abused our hospitality and every American deserves an apology.

The Aspen Institute claims to be an international nonprofit organization founded in 1949 as the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies. The Institute and its international partners promote the creation of a free, just, and equitable society in a nonpartisan and nonideological setting through seminars, policy programs, conferences, and leadership development initiatives. If little Harry is their idea on non-partisan leadership, please protect us from the Aspen Institute and its ilk!

I am 100% confident that we fought and won a war in 1776 so that we wouldn't have to ever give a damn again what any member of the royal family thought. Harry, I would have at least thought all that royal training you got as a boy would have taught you that, when you are a guest somewhere, you don't bad-mouth your hosts!!!! But apparently you are such a "whipped" little girly man eunuch now that you just do whatever evil your manipulative little shrew of a wife tells you to do!!! Grow a pair Harry!!!

Hate to tell you honey but your grandmother is there because the people of Great Britain want her as their figurehead. It is their choice and not written in stone.

News organizations are bound by shareholders to be forward-looking. So what does it say about Fox News, whose popularity took a hit over its election night coverage, that all of a sudden, it's moving its obvious #neverTrumpers away from the broadcast action as it seeks to regain market share? Here's a tweet from NewsMax's Emerald Robinson, outlining a rough pattern: [Snip for tweet]. Now, this is just a back-of-the-envelope calculation. Some, such as Francis, are out for reasons that began before the election was over -- in her case, a pay dispute, while others, such as #NeverTrump Bila, are recent cutbacks. The depth of their #NeverTrump-itude varies, too.

Only bad guys get sanctions, see, so guess who Biden's bad guy is. According to Axios: The Biden administration will waive sanctions on the corporate entity and CEO overseeing the construction of Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline into Germany, according to two sources briefed on the decision.

Talk about cruelty to animals. The U.K. Labour Party took the mother of all thrashings in yesterday's local or special elections, losing its longtime stronghold of Hartlepool in the industrial north for the first time in 62 years, and by a monster margin. That wasn't the only one. According to the Daily Mail: Ministers have predicted that Boris Johnson could rule longer than Margaret Thatcher as results showed the Tories could take 36 more Westminster seats from Labour at the next General Election. Labour was thrashed in the Hartlepool by-election on Thursday, with Jill Mortimer securing a majority of almost 7,000 in a seat the Tories had not held since 1964.

The latest jobs report shows that President Joe Biden is already leaving his imprint on the economy. Job growth was “unexpectedly” slow, and unemployment climbed, despite a massive shortage of workers. When the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the jobs numbers for April, the press seemed stunned. Only 266,000 jobs were created, well below forecasts. The number for March had to be revised down by 146,000. And unemployment ticked up for the first time since the lockdown. The New York Times said that “Jobs Report Shows Surprising Slowdown in Hiring.” Another said “New Jobs Report Shocks Experts With Unexpected Hiring

Mexican crime cartels, never seeing the U.S. border so inviting as it has been under President Joe Biden, are openly driving to the border with tractor trailers full of illegal immigrants and drugs to unload their cargo, according to a new report. For the first time, 18-wheelers are stopping at the Rio Grande to dump their cargo in the poorly defended Big Bend areas of West Texas as cartels shop for new crossing points. “It’s never been this busy,” one agent told Todd Bensman of the Center for Immigration Studies. He has been on the border charting the impact of Biden’s border-opening policies, dubbed “la invitacion” by illegal immigrants.

Explaining the surge, Biden claimed: "I'd like to think it's because I'm a nice guy, but it's not." He insisted that the surgers were just seasonal surgers, nothing to do with his recission of President Trump's migration treaties with Mexico and Central America, nor his

In an address Thursday night at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California, Ryan credited Trump for bringing "many new voters into our party" but said Republicans have to face a reality. "If the conservative cause depends on the populist appeal of one personality, or of second-rate imitations, then we're not going anywhere," Ryan said.

A bill to form a commission tasked with investigating the January 6 Capitol riot will not move forward after the measure failed to reach the 60 votes required to advance.

Just six Republicans voted to advance the bill: Senators Lisa Murkowksi of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, Bill Cassidy of Lousiania, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Mitt Romney of Utah and Rob Portman of Ohio.
