Brits furious over Hillary’s “misappropriation” of English language

London has recalled its ambassador to Washington over Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s “cultural misappropriation” of the English language.

“Her Majesty has simply had enough of America’s embrace of all things British,” Prime Minister David Cameron said earlier today in a fiery Boxing Day speech denouncing the Democratic frontrunner.

“It’s bad enough the Yanks stole the colonies and nearly got Canada too, but Hillary’s campaign Web site is now posting stories in ‘English,’ ” Cameron added with air quotes. “It’s really the last crumpet.”

British Prime Minister David Cameron uses air quotes to mock Sec. Clinton's use of the term "English."

This latest imbroglio comes on the heels of another language controversy engulfing the Democratic frontrunner. Earlier this week, Clinton’s campaign Web site published a blog post centered around the word “abuela” — Spanish for grandmother. The Spanish government, along with the governments of Venezuela and Cuba, accused Mrs. Clinton of misappropriating the Spanish culture, and worse, attempting to court the Latino vote.

“It’s offensive that Secretary Clinton is making a special attempt to reach out to Hispanic voters,” said Cuban President Raúl Castro. “How dare she treat Latinos as a welcome partner in the American dream?”

Prime Minister Cameron took particular offensive at Sec. Clinton's use of the term "pants suit."

Republican party chair Reince Priebus concurred, warning that candidate Clinton was opening a veritable Pandora’s box of electoral troubles.

“Sure, now it’s Americans of Latino origin,” Priebus told ABC’s This Week. “But what’s to stop Hillary from embracing African-Americans, women, gays and even, God forbid, immigrants? If Hillary has her way, there won’t be any voters left to disenfranchise.”

    As soon as I heard “crumpet” I immediately thought of Crumpet the elf that David Sedaris became enamoured of in “Holiday on Ice”…

    I like to be reminded of David Sedaris’ work!

    Know the Jewish history of rebellion and
    asking others to fight their battles…

    & Facts who destroyed the last Temple in Jerusalem 70 AD

    been brainwashed to think that it was the Romans that wanted the temple
    destroyed. An eyewitness to the unfolding events, Josephus saw the destruction
    very differently. According to Josephus, and I believe him, it was the
    Pharisee Jews that WANTED the Temple destroyed .

    was not a traitor to the Levite Priests (Sadducee) of the Jerusalem Temple. He
    was loyal to them and he was one. He correctly exposes the corruption of the
    Pharisee Jews (common men), the eternal nemesis of Sadducee in his writings.
    Jews think him a traitor, but he’s only a traitor in their eyes. Josephus is a
    hero to those who are born to protect the interests of Torah, the Levite

    Pharisee Jews destroyed the Temple and destroyed the house
    of God the sanctuary, commanded by God in Torah and sacred place of the
    Priests. There was some RELUCTANT Roman
    help. But there was an exchange: The Romans got the Temple treasury (They used
    it to build the grand Coliseum) and the Jews got religious control in Israel,
    taking CONTROL away from the Sadducee Priests. With most Sadducee murdered and
    no longer there to keep the majority Pharisee common men inline with Torah, the
    rebellion of the Jews to create a very new religion, Judaism, had begun.

    The Wars, the writings of Josephus Flavius

    that it was a rebellion of our own that destroyed it (the Temple) and that they
    were the tyrants among the Jews (Pharisee) who brought the Roman power upon us
    (Sadducee), who (Romans) unwillingly attacked us, and occasioned the burning of
    our holy TEMPLE

    this, I shall relate the barbarity of the tyrants (Pharisee) towards the people
    of their OWN nation, as well as the indulgence of the Romans in sparing
    foreigners and how often Titus, out of his desire to preserve the city
    and the TEMPLE
    , invited the rebellion to come to terms of

    would Pharisee Jews destroy the Temple?

    a rebellion that started hundreds of years before 70AD with the Sadducee/Levite
    Priests having been chosen by God to minister, to atone, to protect
    Torah and to govern the Land of Israel
    . Pharisee Jews felt then as
    they do now disenfranchised by God, being common men and they figured
    incorrectly, that by merely studying Torah that this divine knowledge would
    bring them ‘closer to God’. They think that by being ‘Torah savvy’ that they’re
    superior to the bloodline of Aaron (who God chose) and would somehow gain them
    favor with God. They were wrong then and they’re wrong today.

    kicking the Pharisee Jews from the land of Israel 1500 years
    ago, God allowed them to return via an ignorant UN decision.

    there be another Temple in Jerusalem under Pharisee Jewish rule?

    You must understand why there will never be another sanctuary/Temple under
    Jewish rule in Israel. Jews hate the concept of a Priesthood defined in Torah,
    the entire concept God commands in Torah of rule and leadership.
    Coupled with a Sanctuary comes the Priests and with the Priest, the
    common man rabbis lose control of the people. Rabbis in general do
    not want another Priesthood and do not want another sanctuary for sacrifices,
    the only way of atonement God prescribes.

    Jewish Rebellion in Writing

    It took the Jews a few hundred years after 70AD to organize their
    ‘Oral Traditions/Laws’ into a written document they call Talmud.
    It was a celebration and culmination of a thousand years of illegal oral laws
    under Priestly rule. Jews formulated the final version of the new Jewish
    Religion which includes Torah plus Prophets plus Writings plus Talmud.
    Never before were such sacred add-on documents like Talmud
    allowed and never will such documents be allowed in the Land of Israel, per
    God. Reference: Deuteronomy (13-1) All this word which
    I command you that shall ye observe to do; thou shalt not ADD
    thereto nor DIMINISH from it.
    Jewish law is not Torah law. Example: A Jew is only a Jew if the mother is a Jew. No
    such law exists in Torah.

    Talmud was created when the Pharisee Jews,
    with some Roman help, destroyed the guardians of Torah, the Levite Priesthood
    (or Sadducee at the time) and their home, the Sanctuary. But as God is eternal
    protector of the Land of Israel from evil, the Jews and their new Talmud
    were kicked from the Land for over 1500 years only to return now with American
    help, the most powerful and influential army in the world.

    Government of Israel

    is being governed like a democracy, but it’s not what God our Creator wants.
    What God wants is a Theocracy under the watchful guidance of
    literal Torah as it was for 1500 years from crossing the
    Jordan up till the destruction of the last temple and the rebellion of the Jews
    against God.

    Jewish state, the democratic Jewish state, will not stand the wrath of God.
    Already, after just 70 tumultuous years, the world is
    turning its back on the rebels that entered the Land again, claiming to be the
    chosen People of God. It’s an abomination that this sham continues.

    Fix, the Fear

    assured there is remedy for the worldwide chaos brought on by the Pharisee
    Jews: It’s called FEAR. God has used FEAR in the past and its worked wonders to
    set straight the crooked and align them with the righteous. It’s through FEAR
    that the Pharisee will flock to the religion of God in droves, begging for
    forgiveness, for mercy in exchange for their obedience: They will willingly
    swap out their stubbornness and haughty contempt for God for obedience, love
    and fear for God. I will require it of him should be taken very
    seriously – DEUTERONOMY 18:19. And it’s not only the Jews that must choose but all other
    religions in Israel will need to convert to religion of God or be kicked from
    the Land of Israel.

    religion of God THE HEBREWS, is the religion of Moses,
    detailed in Torah and eternal inheritance of Levite Priests: The religion,
    which dominated The Land of Israel for 1500 years under the blessings
    of God.

    Europe a better home for Judaism?

    were in fact better off as a people in Europe, safer and free to live their
    Jewish life the way they have for hundreds of years without much interest in
    The Land of Israel or its sacredness. But Europe didn’t want them. In fact
    nobody wanted the Jews and now they’re back in Israel and there’s no escaping
    their obligations and commitments to an everlasting covenant with God. Europe
    is not The Land of Israel. Europe doesn’t have Torah
    commanding its inhabitants to obey God. This is probably why Jews never made
    much effort getting back to the Land in the 1500-year period since their last
    expulsion. Jews went back to the Land after the holocaust because it was the
    only choice: Either die in Europe, a certainty or take their chances that God
    will show them leniency in Israel.


    should be very concerned about this, knowing that you’re now living in Israel
    under God and Torah, in the Land, which God created for a specific religion
    that you do not observe. Jews do not obey Torah, Christians do not obey Torah
    and Muslims do not obey Torah. It’s a terrifying prospect to defy God and at
    the same time claim that you’re obedient to God, that you LOVE God, that you
    FEAR God and all that God commands in Torah.

    are the Legal Inheritors of The Land of Israel?

    from any religion, color or creed, that chooses to give of themselves to the
    religion of God are, according to God, Legal Inheritors of
    The Land of Israel. YOU are an inheritor of the Land. If you’re a Levite Priest
    obeying religion of God, you have no inheritance in the Land. Our inheritance
    is the Law, Torah and our connection is with God.

    is the real purpose of the Levite Priests?

    may think that the roles God commands for Levite Priests are clear: Atonement,
    Sacrifices, Guardians of Torah, Inheritors of the Covenant
    of Peace and many more. But I believe the most important role is a living
    symbol of humanity. A lightning rod, an indicator of how
    mankind treats the chosen ones of God, shows how mankind respects God
    It’s the duty of the common man to sanctify the Priest, make their clothing,
    receive their blessings and atonements. “I will bless them that bless thee and him that
    curseth thee will I curse and in thee shall all the families of the earth be
    blessed”. All the families
    of the earth. Not just those in the Land of Israel, but all of earth.
    That is why treating the Levites well and with respect is essential to the
    survival of mankind on earth. Sanctify the eternal Levites!

    your hearts to a life in the Land of Israel as a Legal inheritor of
    the Land living under the blessings of God, our Creator. Treat God
    and our Levites with the respect God commands. Be fruitful and multiply!

    the lies with Truth!
