Atlas: The f*kcwit home secretary,Â Jacqui Smith,Â corrupt and craven has resigned. Smith banned Geert Wilders, Michael Savage, and Moshe Feiglin from the UK, while welcoming the most vile and barbaric Islamic agitators.
Gordon Brown is facing a major Cabinet crisis afterÂ the resignation of three of his senior ministersÂ threw the Government into disarray on the eve of critical local and European elections.Â
Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, dealt the most serious blow to the Prime Minister’s authority. It emerged that she will step down from the Cabinet when Mr Brown reshuffles his team after what Labour fears will be its worst performance at the polls for a generation.
- A Briton kidnapped in Africa has been beheaded by al Qaeda terrorists demanding the release of radical cleric Abu Qatada from jail. (There is a cure for this, of course. Britain could behead all Islamo-hate-preachers it has in its prisons, and then some…)
She had been under pressure for weeks over expenses claims made by her husband on her behalf,including for two pornographic films. However, the public disclosure of her departure before tomorrow’s elections threw Mr Brown’s reshuffle off course… Â More>>
But don’t declare victory just yet:
SAN FRANCISCO, CA — British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith will resign, according to the London Telegraph.Â Her ban of San Francisco talk show host Michael Savage contributed to her downfall.
World Net Daily notes that in aÂ BBC radio program today featuring Michael Savage, a barrage of callers reflected public anger over Smith’sÂ surprising decision last month to ban the popular American talk hostÂ from entry into the United Kingdom along with murderers and terrorists.
San Francisco’s own Michael Savage conducted a blistering legal attack on the Home Secretary, including filing legal complaints and a libel suit in Britain.Â He vowed that he would see the day when she resigned.Â Â Â
That day has come sooner than he may have expected.Â Of course Smith had other problems. Her husband’s submission of a receipt to the House of Commons for watching adult films. She also claimed her family home as a second home under the Parliament members’ allowances plan while staying with her sister in London. In addition, she allegedly charged a number of personal items as office expenses.
But it was her misguided ban on Savage — personal non grataÂ for alleged incendiary speech — which pushed Smith her into resignation.Â
Yesterday, Savage said thatÂ Media MattersÂ funded in part by George Soros, provided clips to Smith. They were taken out of context.Â Savage also believes that it was part of a grand strategy of groups like Media Matters to impose strict regulation of talk radio in the U.S.Â
That strategy has now backfired miserably.Â Not only is Savage vindicated, but the FCC and Congress will now have a major battle on their hands if Savage and his colleagues on talk radio are restricted.Â Worse for the Left, Michael Savage is now an international star with callers from outside the country.
Michael Savage clearly has his eye on President Obama. But he was also a sharp critic of former President George W. Bush.Â
With a weakened and leaderless Republican Party, leading talk show hosts like Michael Savage have now become the most powerful voices in opposition to the Obama Administration’s socialist movesÂ —hyper budget and deficit expansions, and the take over of major multi-billion dollar corporations, as happened yesterday in the case of General MotorsÂ (a move supported by only 23% of Americans.)
Few of Savage’sÂ colleagues came to his defense.Â They will now pay a price for that disloyalty.Â Savage now becomes the most important talk show host in America.
