Please pray for Auntie Lulu

Auntie Lulu is a longtime FOTM reader and commenter, and an integral member of our blog family.

I noticed that she had not commented for weeks, since last Christmas Eve.

So I sent her a “wellness check” email, but received no response.

Really worried, I called her this morning and, to my great relief, she answered the phone.

Auntie Lulu said she’s been feeling really low, with an imminent hip surgery and hassled by the “communist” Portland city government.

But she has more than the ordinary blues that all of us undergo now and then, tossed about by the vississitudes of life.

Auntie Lulu may be clinically depressed, given her symptoms of listlessness, loss of appetite, and sleep irregularities, especially feeling tired even after a night’s sleep.

I urged her to get an appointment with her doctor ASAP.

In the meantime, Auntie Lulu asks us to pray for her.

Please pray that the dark cloud is lifted from our friend, and that she regains her health and optimism.

Thank you,

MASSIVE anti-Trump rally in D.C.!

Yesterday, @MrJones_tm tweeted this pic of a MASSIVE rally before the Capitol building (Congress) in Washington, DC, demanding that President Trump and Vice President Pence be removed.

Wow!

I’m shaking in my boots at the MASSIVE turnout!

In contrast, this was the turnout at the Second Amendment gun-rights rally at the state capitol in Richmond, VA, on Monday:

Curiously, the anti-Trump protestors seemed to be wearing masks.

Here are some hilarious tweets in response:

HUGE turnout!! I don’t know if I can sleep tonight….

wow, I can’t count them all.

Building momentum towards 2020 #BlueWave.

Adam Schiff’s staff taking a lunch break?

Boy that is as big as the Biden rallies

Hope they had extra crowd control.

We get more ppl than that in taco truck lines here in TX! LOL!

I wonder if the D.C. Metro had to run extra trains for this

It obviously wasn’t funded by Soros.

I’m surprised msm isnt saying over 1 million in attendance

I wonder if they can get a tight enough shot to make it look like a large crowd.

And they’ll still manage to leave more trash behind than the #2A patriots in VA did.

Tulsi Gabbard sues Hillary Clinton for $50 million for ‘Russian spy’ defamation

Finally, someone is holding Hillary Clinton accountable.

This morning, in the U.S. district court in Manhattan, 2020 presidential candidate Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), 38, filed a $50 million defamation suit against Hillary Clinton for calling her a “Russian asset” or spy. The lawsuit demands a jury trial.

Note: An “asset” is a spy working in his or her own country and controlled by the enemy.

A press release from Tulsi’s 2020 campaign states:

On October 17, 2019, she [Hillary Clinton] publicly stated in an interview that “somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary … [is a] favorite of the Russians… Yeah, she’s a Russian asset.” The press extensively republished and disseminated these statements, which were interpreted widely as Clinton asserting that Gabbard is a Russian asset.

Below are excerpts from the lawsuit, Tulsi Gabbard and Tulci Now, Inc. v. Hillary Rodham Cinton (Note: Tulci Now is the principal campaign committee for Tulci Gabbard):

Plaintiffs Tulsi Gabbard and Tulsi Now, Inc. (collectively, “Tulsi”) bring this lawsuit against Defendant Hillary Rodham Clinton (“Clinton”) for defamation. Tulsi Gabbard is running for President of the United States, a position Clinton has long coveted, but has not been able to attain. In October 2019—whether out of personal animus, political enmity, or fear of real change within a political party Clinton and her allies have long dominated—Clinton lied about her perceived rival Tulsi Gabbard. She did so publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent. Tulsi has been harmed by Clinton’s lies—and American democracy has suffered as well. With this action, Tulsi seeks to hold Clinton, and the political elites who enable her, accountable for distorting the truth in the middle of a critical Presidential election….

[I]n February 2016, Tulsi believed the best Democratic presidential candidate for ourcountry was Senator Bernie Sanders. She also knew that Clinton had a stranglehold over the Democratic party and that crossing Clinton (who considered herself the “inevitable nominee”) could mean the end of her own political career….

Clinton—a cutthroat politician by any account—has never forgotten this perceived slight. And in October 2019, she sought retribution by lying, publicly and loudly, about Tulsi Gabbard. Specifically, in widely disseminated national comments, Clinton falsely stated that Tulsi—an Army National Guard officer and United States Congresswoman who has spent her entire adult life serving this country—is a “Russian asset.” Clinton’s false assertions were made in a deliberate attempt to derail Tulsi’s presidential campaign.

Clinton had no basis for making her false assertions about Tulsi—and indeed, there is no factual basis for Clinton’s conspiracy theory. Clinton’s peddling of this theory has harmed Tulsi, has harmed American voters, and has harmed American democracy. Tulsi brings this lawsuit to ensure that the truth prevails and to ensure this country’s political elites are held accountable for intentionally trying to distort the truth in the midst of a critical Presidential election….

On October 17, 2019, Clintonwas a guest on the podcast CampaignHQ With David Plouffe. In the course of a widely-distributed national interview, Clinton stated the following regarding “somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary” who “[they] are grooming . . . to be the third-party candidate”1:

“She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. And, that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she’s also a Russian asset. Yeah, she’s a Russian asset….”

The next day, October 18, Clinton doubled down on the Defamatory Statements. A CNN reporter asked Clinton’s official spokesman, Nick Merrill, whether the Defamatory Statements were about Tulsi. Clinton’s spokesman responded: “If the nesting doll fits.” He continued:“This is not some outlandish claim. This is reality.”

Clinton’sreference to “the nesting doll” is a reference to the universally known Russian nesting dolls (Matryoshkadolls)….

Scientifically conducted opinion surveys have shown that Clinton’s false, malicious statements about Tulsi were accepted as true by millions of Americans, including large numbers of voters in battleground Presidential primary states.

In short, Clinton got exactly what she wanted by lying about Tulsi—she harmed her political and personal rival’s reputation and ongoing Presidential campaign, and started a damaging whisper campaign based on baseless, but vicious, untruths.

Despite calls from Tulsi and other public figures to correct the record, Clinton did not retract the Defamatory Statements. Nor did she apologize for the Defamatory Statements.

Before bringing this lawsuit, Tulsi wrote to Clinton and advised her of the complete and total falsity of the Defamatory Statements. Tulsi also asked Clinton to retract the Defamatory Statements.

Clinton refused to retract the Defamatory Statements and instead stood by them. She continues to stand by them. She refuses to apologize. And Tulsi continues to be greatly injured….

Clinton knew that the Defamatory Statements were false, and she published them knowing they were false. Clinton also intended the Defamatory Statements to be defamatory and endorsed their defamatory nature. At the very least, Clinton acted in reckless disregard of the truth or falsity of the Defamatory Statements when she published them….

The Defamatory Statements have injured Tulsi’s reputation. As a direct and proximate result of Clinton’s intentional and malicious misconduct, Tulsi has suffered anguish and damage to her reputation, with direct and substantial injury to her positions as United States Congresswoman; Presidential candidate; and officer in the Army National Guard. These substantial injuries are continuing in nature and will continue to be suffered in the future, unless and until they are remediated by this Court.

Millions of Americans heard (or read about) Clinton’s Defamatory Statements. Scientifically conducted opinion surveys have shown that Clinton’s false, malicious statements about Tulsi, including that Tulsi is a “Russian asset” and “the favorite of the Russians,” were accepted as true by millions of Americans, including large numbers of voters in battleground Presidential primary states.

The Defamatory Statements have caused Tulsi to lose potential donors and potential voters who heard the Defamatory Statements. Tulsi has suffered significant actual damages, personally and professionally, that are estimated to exceed $50 million—and continue to this day….

In addition to actual damages, Tulsi is entitled to appropriate special and punitive damages in view of Clinton’s malicious and unrepentant conduct. The amount of these damages will be proven at trial, but in no event should they be less than the amount of Tulsi’s actual damages.

Tulsi demands judgment against Clinton as follows: i. An award of compensatory, special and punitive damages in appropriate amounts to be established at trial; ii. Injunctive relief prohibiting the publication or republication of the Defamatory Statements; iii. An award of Tulsi’s costs associated with this action; and iv. Such other and further relief as the Court may deem just and proper.

Tulsi demands a trial by jury on all issues so triable.

You go, Congresswoman Gabbard!

Virginia massive gun-rights rally: 22k participants include Blacks and LGBTs

Since last November 6’s election that gave control of Virginia’s entire state government to Democrats, led by pro-abort Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Democrats have been on a tear to impose gun control. See:

In response is a massive backlash by Virginia gun owners, who have formed Second Amendment sanctuaries and militias against the anticipate gun grab. As of  January 14, 2020, 130 counties and cities have passed sanctuary measures.

On Monday, January 20, some 22,000 patriots rallied at the state capitol in Richmond, VA, to lobby their legislators not to vote away Virginians’ Second Amendment-guaranteed gun rights.

There were rumors that Antifa planned to disrupt the rally. Indeed, according to a tweet by a rally participant @StoodAlive, Antifa were there, but they likely chickened out because of the massive show of force by patriots:

There are some ANTIFA members in the crowd posing as Trump supporters who are planning to start violence in-order for the media to blame Republicans and paint us as violent.

According to Getty Images, the Revolutionary Communist Party were the only counter protesters who attended the rally. Only one arrest was made — a female who police say repeatedly ignored their warnings to remove a mask that she was wearing, which means she likely was an Antifa.

Notwithstanding the hate-America media’s efforts to paint the rally as “white racist/nationalist/supremacist” (see DCG’s “NBC News reporter tries to set narrative for Lobby Day/gun rights rally in VA today“), the rally was peaceful and the participants were diverse, including Blacks, LGBTs, and Democrats (!). Some protesters even brought their babies.

Below are photo images from the rally as testimony (sources: Richmond Times Dispatch; Daily Wire).

We begin with this pic that brought tears to my eyes:

One look at this pic, you’ll totally understand why Antifa punks chickened out:

Sheriffs showed their support!

Blacks showed up in large numbers, a fact that went widely under-reported by the media. Some of them were armed.

One black Second Amendment supporter told Breitbart News:

“I do not support in any way, shape, or form Governor Northam’s and the Democrats’ gun control. What I also don’t support is the fact that every news piece you’ve seen this weekend they’ve always brought up the issue of race as though it’s nothing but white rednecks and hillbillies out here who care for the Second Amendment, when actually black Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Americans in general care about the Second Amendment. I work a gun store part-time and I can’t tell you the number of customers I see of all races, all colors, all creeds, who care about the Second Amendment and who just peaceably live their lives, enjoy their rights and the Second Amendment. So, that’s why I’m out here and big media, mainstream media be damned, if you take a good look at me you can see that I’m a black American and all I’m out here for is to enjoy my Second Amendment rights. That’s why I’m here.”

Here’s a Black man stating why he came to the rally.

A Black woman was at the “white supremacist” [eyeroll] rally.

LGBTs were at the rally, carrying the rainbow flag.

Some parents even brought their babies to the peaceful rally.

Hey, Gov. Northam and the Democrat legislators of Virginia, did you get the message loud and clear?

Pentagon bans Bible verses on dog tags, while Pres. Trump upholds right to pray in public schools

No Bible Verses on Soldiers’ Dog Tags

The Pentagon caved in to (((Mikey Weinstein))) of the atheistic Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) again.

Caleb Parke reports for Fox News, Dec. 3, 2019, that for the past 20 years, U.S. military members have been able to wear dog tags with Bible verses on them, giving them light and hope in some of their darkest times. For some Gold Star families, this is one of their most cherished possessions to remember their loved one who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Founded by Kenny Vaughan in 1998, Shields of Strength is a Texas-based company that makes Christian jewelry, beginning with a dog-tag with a Bible scripture which Vaughan had made for himself. The company now makes dog-tags with Bible verses for military members and their family, as well as other Christian-theme jewelry and apparel.

After Fox News reported on Shields of Strength last July, Weinstein complained to the Department of Defense (DOD), demanding the DOD ban the Bible verses dog-tags. “Soon after,” each military branch pulled or threatened to pull the trademark licenses that had been issued to Kenny Vaughan from Shields of Strength.

Berry, a Marine Corps combat veteran who served in Afghanistan, told Fox News: “Just when I didn’t think Mikey Weinstein could stoop any lower, he pulled a stunt like that. He’d rather take it away from them just to raise his own publicity than support our service members … that’s pretty cowardly and that’s cruel.”

Vaughan said he’s seen soldiers, who have to leave their Bible behind, carry their Shields of Strength dog-tags with them; oftentimes, the soldiers would stand in line for hours just to get one: “The love of Jesus changed my life forever. It’s the most valuable thing I have to offer anyone is God’s Word. No one needs it more than a young man or woman fighting for our freedom and we’re going to fight for them.”

An acquaintance of mine who’s a Constitutional Law attorney, says:

“While I would absolutely oppose the military issuing such tags (even with a request from the servicemember) it is outrageous that servicemembers can’t voluntarily inscribe their own tags. From a legal point of view, if the military allows any inscriptions at all (like “I Love Mom”) then banning religious ones is content discrimination. That triggers strict (constitutional) scrutiny.”

Prayer in School

Meanwhile, on January 16, 2020, President Trump followed through on his promise to the Evangelicals for Trump rally in Miami on January 3 to “safeguard students’ and teachers’ First Amendment rights to pray in our schools” through a directive from the Department of Education.

As reported by the AP and Christianity Today, the Department of Education issued a guidance on school prayer, the first updated guidance since 2003. The directive orders states to verify that school districts have no policies limiting constitutionally protected prayer, refer violators to the Education Department, and provide ways for making complaints against schools.

From the Department of Education’s press release of January 16, 2020:

[F]or the first time since 2003, the Department will …issue today updated guidance on constitutionally protected prayer in public elementary and secondary schools. The Department is required by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act, to update this guidance every two years. The guidance explains the ESEA’s requirement that states report which local educational agencies have not certified that they do not have any policy that prevents, or otherwise denies participation in, constitutionally protected prayer. The ESEA also requires states to report complaints against a local educational agency that allegedly denies a person, including a student or employee, the right to engage in constitutionally protected prayer. The guidance clarifies that the ESEA requires states to provide a clear process for students, parents, and teachers to report violations of their right to pray. Under the ESEA, states must fulfill these reporting requirements by November 1 of each year.

Christianity Today reminds us that public schools have been barred from leading students in classroom prayer since 1962, when the Supreme Court said it violated a First Amendment clause forbidding the establishment of a government religion. Later decisions extended the ban to school graduation ceremonies and, under certain circumstances, school athletic games.

Civil liberties groups say the firewall protects religious minorities and ensures fair treatment of all faiths. But many Christians say courts and schools have pushed too far against the right to free religious expression. Surveys find that Americans remain largely in favor of prayer in public schools:

  • According to General Social Survey data analyzed by political scientist Ryan Burge, just 20–35% of Christians support a ban against requiring reading the Lord’s Prayer or the Bible in public schools, and the religiously unaffiliated are evenly divided on the question.
  • A 2019 Pew Research Center survey found 41% of teens in public schools, including 68% of evangelicals, said they view teacher-led prayer in class as appropriate. A majority of teens in general (82%) and evangelical teens (64%) say there are no religious support or prayer groups that meet in their school.

South Dakota’s Republican Governor Kristi Noem, 48, is also fighting back against the Left’s tyranny.

In March 2019, Noem signed a law requiring every public school throughout the state to display an “In God We Trust” sign on their premises beginning in the fall semester. The law went into effect last July. (H/t Tom Wigand)

President Trump nixes Obama deal for China to control Port of Long Beach

The Port of Long Beach, California is the second-busiest port in the United States and one of the world’s busiest seaports, a leading gateway for trade between the United States and Asia. It supports more than 2.6 million jobs nationally and generates billions of dollars in economic activity each year.

Founded in 1911, each year, the Port handles:

  • More than 7.5 million 20-foot container units (TEUs)
  • Cargo valued at $194 billion
  • 82.3 million metric tons of cargo
  • 2,000 vessel calls

The Port’s loaded containers account for:

  • 1/3 moving through all California ports
  • 1/4 moving through all West Coast ports
  • nearly 1 in 5 moving through all U.S. ports

Given its importance, for a foreign country to control the Port of Long Beach would be worrisome, not to mention a foreign country has no business controlling any port in the United States. Even worse, however, if the foreign country is one not friendly to the United States and whose politcal-economic system is hostile to democracy.

But that’s precisely what the Obama administration did.

In 2012, the Obama administration signed an agreement — a 40-year container terminal lease — giving OOCL (Orient Overseas Container Line), a Hong Kong container transportation and logistics company, control of the Port of Long Beach, America’s second-largest container port behind the nearby Port of Los Angeles.

Note: Hong Kong is a part of China, ostensibly a “special administration region” with alleged autonomy from the Chinese government in Beijing.

According to Printus LeBlanc of the Daily Torch, OOCL has been a good steward of the port with no controversy associated with the company.

In July 2017, however, OOCL was purchased by COSCO (China Ocean Shipping Company), a Chinese government-owned conglomerate. Headquarted in Beijing, COSCO is the largest dry bulk carrier in China and one of the largest dry bulk shipping operators worldwide.

LeBlanc points out why COSCO’s control of the Port of Long Beach is a matter of great concern:

This is the same Chinese government responsible for dozens of hacks and spying operations, targeting the U.S. defense industry. The communist government has been assaulting the defense industry, stealing hundreds of billions of dollars in trade secrets. The People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has been able to make staggering technological advancements because of the theft. The F-35, V-22, Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, and Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System are just a few of the systems compromised by Chinese espionage efforts. After the unprecedented level of spying, why would the U.S. invite the perpetrator onto U.S. soil?

The attempted Chinese purchase of the port operations fits a pattern for the Chinese government. The Communist regime has undertaken an ambitious global project known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The initiative is a series of Chinese controlled ports, railways, and highway projects connecting 65 percent of the global population and 40 percent of global GDP.

China is using the BRI to influence policies of the nations the belt passes throughas it did with Greece last Summer. Greece refused to back the European Union’s attempt to criticize China’s human rights record, marking the first time the union failed to make its statement at the U.N.

The addition of the Long Beach Port implies the Chinese government may want to extend the belt to the Western Hemisphere. Perhaps we shouldn’t make it so easy for them.

Happily, President Trump squashed the Obama administration’s deal.

Judicial Watch reports:

Under a long-term deal sealed by the Obama administration, a Chinese Communist company was set to control the second-busiest container port in the United States. In an unreported Trump administration victory, the Communists are out after a drawn-out national security review forced a unit of China-based COSCO Shipping Holdings Co. (Orient Overseas Container Line—OOCL) to sell the cherished container terminal business, which handles among the largest freight of imports into the U.S.

One of the Trump administration’s first big moves was to get the Communists out of the Port of Long Beach. After a national security review and federal intervention, the Long Beach terminal business, which handles millions of containers annually, is finally being sold to an Australian company called Macquarie Infrastructure Partners. That essentially kills China’s decades-long contract with the Obama administration.

The deal never should have been signed in the first place considering the facility’s size, significance and the national security issues associated with a hostile foreign government controlling it….

Removing Chinese Communists from this essential port is a tremendous feat and a huge victory for U.S. national security. You’d never know it because the media, consumed with the impeachment debacle, has ignored this important achievement. The only coverage of the finalized transfer is found in Long Beach’s local newspaper, which published a brief article omitting important background information on the Trump administration’s work to take back the terminal from the Communists….

In the last few years China has bought cargo ports throughout the world, including in Latin America, the Indian Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. Chinese-owned ports are located in Greece, Italy, Spain and other European locations. In sub-Saharan Africa there are dozens of existing or planned port projects funded or operated by China, according to a study that highlights the threat the Chinese investments present to U.S. influence in the region. One troubling analysis points out that “COSCO’s commercial expansion has created leverage for Beijing — leverage that has already resulted in countries that host COSCO ports adopting China’s position on key international issues.

Thank you, President Trump!

Sunday Devotional: Sing a new song to our Lord

Psalms 40:2-18

Surely, I wait for the LORD;
who bends down to me and hears my cry,
Draws me up from the pit of destruction,
out of the muddy clay,
Sets my feet upon rock,
steadies my steps,
And puts a new song in my mouth,
a hymn to our God.
Many shall look on in fear
and they shall trust in the LORD.

Blessed the man who sets
his security in the LORD,
who turns not to the arrogant
or to those who stray after falsehood.
You, yes you, O LORD, my God,
have done many wondrous deeds!
And in your plans for us
there is none to equal you.
Should I wish to declare or tell them,
too many are they to recount.

Sacrifice and offering you do not want;
you opened my ears.
Holocaust and sin-offering you do not request;
so I said, “See; I come
with an inscribed scroll written upon me.
I delight to do your will, my God;
your law is in my inner being!”

When I sing of your righteousness
in a great assembly,
See, I do not restrain my lips;
as you, LORD, know.
I do not conceal your righteousness
within my heart;
I speak of your loyalty and your salvation.
I do not hide your mercy or faithfulness from a great assembly.

LORD, may you not withhold
your compassion from me;
May your mercy and your faithfulness
continually protect me.
But evils surround me
until they cannot be counted.
My sins overtake me,
so that I can no longer see.
They are more numerous than the hairs of my head;
my courage fails me.
LORD, graciously rescue me!
Come quickly to help me, LORD!

May those who seek to destroy my life
be shamed and confounded.
Turn back in disgrace
those who desire my ruin.
Let those who say to me “Aha!”
Be made desolate on account of their shame.
While those who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you.
May those who long for your salvation
always say, “The LORD is great.”

Though I am afflicted and poor,
my Lord keeps me in mind.
You are my help and deliverer;
my God, do not delay!

Sing along! Here’s the lyrics:

Sing unto the Lord a new song
Sing unto the Lord all the earth (x2)

For God is great and greatly to be praised (x2)

He put a new song in my mouth
A hymn of praise unto our God
Many will see and fear – And put their trust in the Lord (x2)

As we worship the Lord in spirit and in truth
Let the voice of the Lord be heard in all the earth

And may the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you!

Harry & Meghan Markle lose in duel with the Queen

On January 8, 2020, after British taxpayers had spent $41.9 million (£32 million) on their wedding less than two years ago in May 2018, and another $3 million on refurbishing their residence Frogmore Cottage (including a copper bath tub and a yoga floor), eco-hypocrites Prince Harry, 35, and his D-list Hollywood-actress wife Meghan Markle, 38, sparked a crisis in the British monarchy by announcing (on Instagram!) they want to reduce their royal duties (whatever that means) and spend more time in North America, while becoming “financially independent”.

The Toxic Duo made the announcement without consulting with or even notifying Harry’s 93-year-old grandmother, the Queen.

By “financially independent” is meant their intention to milk their royal titles for commercial purpose. Already, they’ve registered the domain name SussexRoyal.com and filed for a trademark for “Sussex Royal” on a dizzying range of items including clothing and newspapers. At the same time, while “reducing their royal duties,” the Toxic Duo have every intention of keeping all the royal perquisites they’ve enjoyed, including their royal titles (HRH, Duke and Duchess of Sussex) and £multimillions in security protection and grants from Prince Charles’ Duchy of Cornwall.

In their grandiose and ill-advised showdown with the British monarchy, the Markles have lost.

Today, Buckingham Palace, i.e., the Queen, issued a stunning announcement that effective Spring 2020 (Daily Mail) :

  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are to completely give up royal life, stop carrying out royal duties, and they can no longer formally represent the Queen.
  • Since they no longer represent the Queen, they will not be entitled to the protection detail they currently have.
  • Since they will no longer carry out royal duties, they will no longer be funded by the taxpayer. (But the assumption is that Harry will continue to be supported by his father, Prince Charles, to the tune of around £2.3million a year. That money is from Prince Charles’ £21 million a year income generated from the Duchy of Cornwall.)
  • They will no longer use their HRH (His/Her Royal Highness) titles.
  • Henceforth, they will be known as “Harry, Duke of Sussex” and “Meghan, Duchess of Sussex” — titles that can only be removed by an Act of Parliament (which can still happen).
  • They will repay £2.4 million of taxpayers’ money spent to renovate their Frogmore Cottage home, in which it is rumored the couple never actually lived. 
  • They have pledged to “uphold the Queen’s values,” which most commentators interpret as a constraint on the Toxic Duo’s grand plans to merchandise their royal titles and connections.
  • Prince Harry who had served a decade in the British Army will be stripped of his “official military appointments,” which means he will no longer be Captain General of the Royal Marines, Honorary Air Force Commandant of the Royal Air Force Base Honington, and Honorary Commodore-in-Chief of the Royal Naval Commands’ Small Ships and Diving.
  • Buckingham Palace will review the “new arrangements” in a year, which means there may be more punitive constraints if the Toxic Duo misbehave by, as they have threatened, to “tell all” in American TV interviews.
