Prince Phillip died early Friday morning:
— New York Post (@nypost) April 9, 2021
From the story at the New York Post:
Prince Philip, the longest-serving royal consort in British history, who was a constant companion to Queen Elizabeth II during their 74 years of marriage and the father to royal heir Prince Charles, died Friday. He was 99.
“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” Buckingham Palace announced on Twitter Friday.
“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.”
Known for his easy-going humor, dapper wardrobe and sometimes startling frankness, The Duke of Edinburgh was a tireless advocate for the monarchy, wildlife conservation, science and a proponent of mixing athletics with scholarship.
He also racked up more than 22,000 solo public engagements since 1952.
The oldest-ever male member of the British royal family, Philip was rarely seen in public after he retired from his public duties in August 2017.
Here’s all you need to know about China Joe Biden and gun control. – China Joe doesn’t even know the name of the agency charged with enforcing America’s gun laws:

At one point in his utterly, completely, 100% dishonest speech announcing his new executive orders on gun control, our brain-addled Sock Puppet read from his TelePrompter a statement claiming that attendees at gun shows are able to purchase firearms with no background checks at all. An outright lie.
When asked at her press briefing later in the day if the Sock Puppet-in-Chief actually believes that lie, the hapless Jen Circle Back Psaki responded exactly as you’d expect her to respond:
Q: The president said a moment ago, "You go to a gun show, you can buy whatever you want. No background check."… Is it the president's belief that you do not have to undergo a background check when you are at a gun show?
PSAKI: No, it's not his belief. pic.twitter.com/sYK7SzftaI

“No, it’s not his belief.” That’s an actual, very rare true statement from the White House spokesperson. See, Joe Biden doesn’t actually have beliefs of his own. On any subject. As I’ve written many times in the past, Joe Biden’s brain is an empty vessel waiting to be refilled with the ideas of others.
I mean, my God, this is a man who was forced out of the presidential race in 1988 because he is so vacant-minded that he literally plagiarized the speech of a British politician in an effort to reinvent his own personal life story. This man doesn’t even know who he is as a person, much less hold any deep beliefs about the pressing issues facing America today.
And of course he doesn’t really believe anything he said in that speech yesterday, which as Tucker Carlson exposed in his monologue last night, was nothing but a recitation of the long-promoted false talking points of the radical left on the issue of gun control. That speech – like every other speech he gives – was written for him by others. All China Joe did was read it, and not very well, obviously.
A friend commented after Biden’s latest lurch into Soviet-style totalitarianism that “it’s almost as if the Democrat Party decided last year to intentionally saddle the country with the single dumbest and most easily-manipulated person in their entire party.”
No, it’s not ‘almost’ like that: It’s exactly like that. And they succeeded.
God help us, the alternative to China Joe – the amazing disappearing “Border Czar” and former escort for Willie Brown – is even worse and more dangerous.
We are so screwed.
Meanwhile, at that same fake White House press briefing… – Not a single question was raised by a single fake reporter during this hour-long daily soiree about the literal invasion that is happening at our border with Mexico. Not one.
Not a *single question* from the White House press corps about CBP's new numbers for March showing 172,000+ illegal crossings.
We did, however, get questions about "what's up" with construction on White House grounds. pic.twitter.com/gEVTWGkvpl

The crisis at our southern border continues to explode, with the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol posting all-time record high numbers of apprehensions during March. The numbers are simply overwhelming:
From a story at the DailyMail:
March saw the most migrant children crossing the border in a month in HISTORY with 19,000 kids taken into cramped shelters that cost $60MILLION a week
March saw the most migrant children crossing the border in history, with 18,890 unaccompanied minors being taken into cramped shelters.
The previous record was when around 11,000 children crossed the border in May 2019.
The March numbers provided by Customs and Border Patrol Thursday represented a 100 per cent increase in crossings compared to February.
Overall in March, the CBP encountered more than 172,000 people attempting to gain entry along the Southwest border, which represented a 71 per cent increase over February 2021.
The CBP’s acting commissioner Troy Miller pushed that the situation was under control.
‘CBP has experienced an increase in encounters and arrests. This is not new. Encounters have continued to increase since April 2020, and our past experiences have helped us be better prepared for the challenges we face this year,’ Miller said in a statement attached to the new numbers. ‘We are committed to balancing the needs of maintain border security, care for those in our custody and keep the American people and our workforce safe.’
It was also revealed on Thursday that Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services is spending $60million a week to house the child migrants in 10 shelters across the country.
Figures seen by The Washington Post show the cost of caring for one of these youths is $290 a day, and the 7,700 available beds have already been completely overwhelmed.
President Joe Biden also tried to characterize the influx as normal seasonal upticks during his late March press conference.
‘It happens every single solitary year. There is a significant increase in the number of people coming to the border in the winter months of January, February, March – it happens every year,’ Biden said then.[End]

Why don’t the fake reporters ask about any of this when given the chance? Because this crisis at the border is a feature of the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration, not a glitch. This is all just part of the plan, and the corrupt, Soviet-style state-run propaganda media is complicit.
This really is not complicated. Not at all.
That is all.
