  • Delingpole: The Meghan Effect – ‘Woke’ Younger Royals Snub Donald Trump

    The Prince of Wales, Prince William, and the younger royals all deliberately snubbed President Donald J. Trump on his visit to the UK, the Sunday Times reports. I blame the Meghan effect. Of course we can’t hold the arrival into the Royal household of a pretty actress who used to be in Suits wholly responsible for this outbreak of crass, thick, petulant behaviour: as we know, the Prince of Wales is more than capable of that without much prompting; and in Will’s case, the acorn doesn’t look as if it has fallen too far from the tree. Still, I’m blaming...

    THE QUEEN was left to take on her royal duty alone when she met Donald Trump and wife Melania, with Prince Charles and Prince William refusing to join in the elaborate welcome. Senior members of the Royal Family, including the first and second in line to the throne, had informal discussions about the trip, and let it be known they did not want to take part in arrangements for the US President’s four-day UK visit. Downing Street and Buckingham Palace both said as Trump’s tour of the UK was not an official state visit, there was a singular plan to...

    Alan Dershowitz, the lawyer and academic, has revealed he has been "shunned" by former friends on Martha's Vineyard because of his defence of President Donald Trump. The 73-year-old former Harvard Law professor claims liberal elites have closed ranks to exclude him from their social circles on the wealthy Massachusetts island because of his defence of the president's civil liberties. Mr Dershowitz, who famously defended OJ Simpson, has been a vocal critic of the decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate the US president for possible Russian collusion in the 2016 election.

    Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz said last week that his defense of President Donald Trump’s constitutional rights led to him being “shunned” by his own friends at a high-end seasonal destination. The famed lawyer lamented the efforts to eject him from his social life at Martha’s Vineyard amid his outspoken criticism of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the alleged collusion with Russia. In an op-ed for The Hill, Dershowitz, a frequent guest on Fox News, said that though he’s politically a liberal Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton in addition to contributing “handsomely” to her campaign, his defense of...

    Thomas Markle claims he's been snubbed by the royal family in favour of 'arrogant and insensitive' U.S. President Donald Trump. The 73-year-old said he hadn't talked to his daughter Meghan or anyone from Kensington Palace since his explosive Good Morning Britain interview. He accused the royals of giving him the cold shoulder in response to last week's interview and felt he'd been put in the 'penalty box'. Mr Markle was particularly unhappy President Trump would meet the Queen, Meghan's grandmother-in-law before he did. 'If the Queen is willing to meet our arrogant and insensitive president she has no excuse not...

    U.S. Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Lee on Tuesday invited the Golden State Warriors to Washington, D.C., days after President Trump said the NBA Finals winner would not be welcomed to the White House. Lee and Pelosi sent a letter to Coach Steve Kerr as the team celebrated its victory with a parade through Oakland. “In celebration of your victory, we would be delighted to welcome you publicly as a team or personally as families to the United States Capitol,” the Bay Area representatives said. “Please consider this as a blanket invitation whenever your individual schedules allow.”

    President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May will not be holding a formal bilateral meeting at the G7 summit this weekend. “Obviously the European Union will be responding. We want to ensure, and we’re working with others in the European Union to ensure, that that response is proportionate, that it is within the WTO rules,” May told reporters. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron have floated the idea of issuing a formal rebuke of Trump's tariffs at the summit's conclusion.

After she concluded her speech, she walked out of the chamber when a Palestinian representative began to speak.

    Democrats' acknowledgement of the U.S. embassy opening in Jerusalem Monday was virtually non-existent. The Times of Israel reported that no Democratic members of Congress attended the ceremony.Former Sen. Joe Lieberman, told them he was “surprised” that “no sitting legislators from his former party were in Jerusalem for the embassy dedication.”“I hope that the Democratic members had [scheduling] conflicts and they had to be somewhere else,” he said. “I hope that they don’t see this as some kind of pro-Trump rally in Jerusalem. It’s not. Its a pro-US-Israel friendship-partnership-alliance rally. And it’s celebrating the strength of our relationship, which has been...

    As the United States Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem is dedicated on Monday, not one Congressional Democrat will be in attendance. Several Republicans from both the House of Representatives and the Senate will be in attendance at the event. A couple of delegations of Congressional Republicans flew to Israel for the event, the Times of Israel reports. "That is a sad, sad manifestation. I wish he’d have every member of Congress here," Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) said blaming former President Barack Obama and his relationship with Israeli leadership for no Democrats attending. "I don’t know why the Democrats will...

    Four U.S. Senators addressed members of the press at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on Monday morning, hours before the official relocation of the U.S. embassy — and all four were Republicans. Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Dean Heller (R-NV), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Mike Lee (R-UT) made the trip, along with ten Republican U.S. Representatives — but not one Democrat joined the U.S. delegation for the embassy event. Only former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) — who was the Democratic nominee for vice president in 2000 before being rejected by his party in 2006 for his support of the Iraq...

    Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said Monday “it's ridiculous" that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., reportedly does not want President Donald Trump to attend his funeral, and hopes the war hero has a change of heart. "I think it's ridiculous," Hatch told Politico. "Well, he's the president of the United States and he's a very good man. But it's up to [McCain]. I think John should have his own wishes fulfilled with regard to who attends the funeral." McCain’s closest family members reportedly informed the White House that the current plan is for the funeral to be held at Washington’s National Cathedral,...

    Vogue magazine, the arbiter of fashion, couldn't get enough of Michelle Obama. The same has not been true of Melania Trump. The New York Post observes: Magazines are showing no love for Melania Trump. The internet was in a tizzy last week when actor James Woods pointed out via Twitter that the first lady hasn’t been a muse for the magazine industry since her husband, President Trump, took office. Woods tweeted: “If the Trumps were Democrats, Melania would be on every cover of every chic women’s magazine in the world every month.” The tweet, which was accompanied by an old...

    It's not just because I have yet to read Dostoevsky's The Possessed or George Eliot's Middlemarch or an embarrassing amount of Faulkner that I will not pony up $17.95 for a hard copy or even $14.95 for the Kindle version of James Comey's new book A Higher Loyalty, subtitled, in case you miss his drift, Truth, Lies and Leadership. It's also not just because I find him one of the more pompous individuals, real or imagined, this side of an Oscar Wilde play. And it's further not just because from the few excerpts I've seen the writing seems predictably puerile....

    Long before Melania Trump became the first lady of the United States, she was a working model. She started her career when she was 16 years old and living in Slovenia before she uprooted to Milan at age 18. Then, in 1996, her profession brought her to the U.S., where she lived and worked as a model in New York. In fact, it was Melania’s career that essentially landed her at a party during Fashion Week in September 1998, where she met her husband, President Donald Trump. Melania Trump never reached supermodel status. Her former roommate and photographer Matthew Atanian...

He is then scheduled to fly to Los Angeles, arriving at...
