  • Liberal Newsletter rages against Margaret Thatcher

    05/24/2017 8:20:04 AM PDT · by mainestategop · 8 replies
    While in Bangor Maine last week I saw the liberal fruit loops downtown handout fliers and protest  against Trump. They were gathered near the bus terminal at the parking garage, beating drums, chanting F donald Trump and so on,  There was  also a table handing out pamplets and leaflets. They were mostly the same, raging against trump, global warming deniers, capitalism ETC. But one that really caught my attention was a single pamphlet they had about Margaret Thatcher. Some of what I read was pretty crazy and yet not so surprising. Essentially they claimed that Britain was the aggressor in...

    The Daily Telegraph ^ | 01 Sep 2013 | Richard Orange, Oslo
    In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Siv Jensen, the 44-year-old leader of the Progress party who cites Baroness Thatcher as her inspiration, said: "What I have seen that the UK has done is to give in to the claims of sharia councils, and I don't think we should give into that. In Norway we have one law, and that is the Norwegian law." Miss Jensen, who is unmarried, said Britain was suffering the results of earlier mistakes in its immigration policy. "I see some problems arising – You've had problems with riots, you've had problems with radical groups who...

    Margaret Thatcher’s spectacular ceremonial funeral cost the taxpayer just £1.2 million ($1.8 million), just a fraction of the sum claimed by left-wing opponents. The final bill for the ceremony at St Paul’s Cathedral was revealed by ministers today in a rebuff to critics who suggested the costs would top £10 million ($15.4 million). Officials said that detailed work on the price of security, policing, staff overtime and hiring the Cathedral meant the total was much lower than early estimates suggested. …

    The first volume of Charles Moore's authorized biography of Margaret Thatcher, covering her life up to Britain's victory in the Falklands, is out. It takes its place among the finest political biographies of all time. Thatcher gave Moore full access to her papers and to all her friends and relatives, on condition that she never see the book. It was a wise precaution. Moore is a conservative, more traditionalist than Mrs. Thatcher (as he always calls her) and broadly sympathetic to her causes. But he was able to get frank responses from relatives, friends, and colleagues that might never have...

    Margaret Thatcher, who served as prime minister of Britain from 1979 to 1990, is most famous for teaming up with my father Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II to peacefully end the Cold War and bring about the collapse of the Soviet Union. But at home, the “Iron Lady’s” intellect, political will and love of freedom and capitalism also saved Britain from its long, slow death by socialism. Prime Minister Thatcher freed up Britain’s economy by deregulating business, privatizing government-owned industries and breaking the back of the powerful unions that were smothering her country to death. Not that The...

    Virtue Online ^ | 4-9-13 | Albert Mohler
    Margaret Thatcher, one of the most significant leaders of the 20th century, died yesterday at age 87. A model of convictional leadership, Margaret Thatcher became almost universally known as Britain's "Iron Lady." In May 1979, Margaret Thatcher moved into No. 10 Downing Street and changed the course of British history. Beyond this, Lady Thatcher changed the terms of debate on both sides of the Atlantic and left a legacy of leadership that should inspire generations to come. Born October 13, 1925 in the village of Grantham, Margaret Roberts was soon recognized as an unusually bright and forceful child. Her father,...

    Baroness Thatcher to receive ceremonial but not state funeral Baroness Thatcher will receive a ceremonial funeral with full military honours at St Paul’s Cathedral, it has been announced. The funeral will have official status, similar to that accorded to the funeral of the Queen Mother, but it will not be a full state funeral in line with her own wishes and those of her family. Lady Thatcher will not lie in state and there will be no military fly-past. Full details of the ceremony will be announced in coming days but Downing Street said a “wide and diverse range...

    Grub Street New York ^ | April 8, 2013
    This morning, Margaret Thatcher died at age 87 owing to complications from a stroke. One of the lesser-known accomplishments of Britain's first female prime minister is her role in the creation of soft-serve. Thatcher, an Oxford chemistry grad, supported herself financially in the fifties by working at food manufacturer J. Lyons and Co. There, she became part of a team of chemists that developed key emulsifiers for ice cream. By increasing the amount of air and making it possible to churn soft-serve out of a machine, Thatcher paved the way for Britain's Mr. Whippy trucks. Her work also had financial...

    Margaret Thatcher was a staunch defender of Jewish causes and a supporter of Israel in her political career, unlike most Tory politicians before her By Charles C. Johnson|December 28, 2011 7:00 AM When asked about her most meaningful accomplishment, Margaret Thatcher, now embodied by Meryl Streep in the biopic Iron Lady, did not typically mention serving in the British government, defeating the Argentine invasion of the Falklands, taming runaway inflation, or toppling the Soviet Union. The woman who reshaped British politics and served as prime minister from 1979 to 1990 often said that her greatest accomplishment was helping save...

    The Iron Lady isn’t a political film. It isn’t even an insightful biopic. It’s a different kind of movie, and belongs in a different kind of category. File alongside ‘Plan 9 From Outer Space’, ‘Billy The Kid Versus Dracula’ and ‘Falling In Love’. Laughably dire.

      Iron Lady, Feeble Film David C. Stolinsky Jan. 12, 2012 http://cloud.frontpagemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/meryl_streep.jpg The current film “The Iron Lady” purports to give an account of the life and career of Margaret Thatcher, former prime minister of the United Kingdom. In this the film fails. It does provide a superb vehicle for Meryl Streep to display her well-known acting talent. But instead of an overview of Lady Thatcher’s career and accomplishments, it portrays a version so slanted that one might suspect it was written and produced by leftists who were no admirers of Thatcher. Oh wait, it was. We are shocked...

    Lady Thatcher is in my top 5 Conservative champions of all time, and this recognition by her lucid countrymen of her vindicated wisdom, especially in these times, is inspiring. The tide of wisdom may be sweeping away shallow suicidal waters of socialism and winning the day through buoyant Conservative seas, for which she nearly alone showed how to plot her nation's course. Bravo!

Former prime minister Margaret Thatcher left her home for a birthday lunch in London today flanked by her son Sir Mark Thatcher and daughter-in-law Sarah. Despite suffering from a catalogue of health problems, she managed a broad smile for the cameras as she was helped into a waiting car.
