  • Bill O’Reilly: Black people should wear “Don’t get pregnant at 14 T-shirts"

    On Wednesday evening’s edition of “The O’Reilly Factor,” Bill O’Reilly spoke with Martin Luther King III, a human rights activist and Martin Luther King Jr.’s oldest son, who discussed victimhood in the black community and learning to overcome setbacks and achieve success. O’Reilly was, expectedly, thrilled. “I don’t mind President Obama saying to LeBron James, ‘Look, I’m with you.’ And that’s what he did,” O’Reilly mused. “But he also has to provide some leadership in the sense of saying just what you said. Just exactly what you said. You know what, we fight the injustice and we realize it’s there,...

    Marcus Mariota, widely considered the favorite over co-finalists Melvin Gordon and Amari Cooper, won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night in New York. College football's top honor punctuates the Oregon junior quarterback's list of 2014 accolades, which include the Walter Camp, Davey O'Brien, Maxwell and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm awards. Mariota's banner season included 3,783 passing yards and 38 touchdown passes against two interceptions. The dual-threat quarterback also racked up 669 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground.

    Philadelphia rap artist Beanie Sigel was shot Friday morning in Pleasantville, New Jersey, but he was not the intended victim, according to an attorney for Sigel's family. The shooting happened around 9 a.m. in the 800 block of Spruce Avenue. Police say the victim, whose real name is Dwight Grant, was shot in the abdomen. He was admitted to the hospital with a life-threatening injury and was in critical condition. A second person was also injured after what appeared to be a scuffle. That person has refused treatment and, police say, has not been cooperating with the investigation. There was...

    LINCOLN, Neb. -- Bo Pelini was fired on Sunday, ending the seven-year run of the polarizing figure as Nebraska's football coach. "We weren't good enough in the games that mattered," athletic director Shawn Eichorst said in his meeting with the media that lasted nearly 35 minutes. "I didn't see that changing at the end of the day." Eichorst said he will not use a search firm to assist him in finding the next coach. "This isn't a day of celebration for me," he said. "We've got a lot of good, young people in our program who are hurting." Eichorst said...

    Elections no longer serve their intended purpose, to temporarily empower others to make law on our behalf, subject to constitutional limitations.

His first act was to lead a barbarian invasion across our southern border. A last ditch defense of our republic demands two actions. First, the virus that afflicts our governing body, Barack Obama, must be excised. If not, he will continue his scorched earth demonic march through our God given...

  • Glenn Beck gives interesting immigration unfairness anecdote

    I turned on the radio briefly to hear what Glenn Beck had to say about the amnesty EO. He said that he knows a homosexual married man, who has been trying so hard to go through the red-tape get his spouse into USA legally. I believe he said he'll have an interview with this man shortly. While I totally agree about his point of the unfairness of EO amnesty, I thought his example of someone trying to follow the law was rather odd, and very atypical of the average person waiting in line.

In an unexpected remark Friday, the Russian president spoke of the “meaning of life,” saying that for him “in general” it is love that matters. Briefly digressing from politics, Putin ventured a philiosophical observation that “multifaceted” love is “the basis of all our actions” and the essence of being. "The meaning of our whole life and existence is love," Putin told his audience at the 15th Congress of the Russian Geographical Society. "It is love for the family, for the children, for the motherland....

Dunham also claims that she heard stories of Barry hurting two other women. One woman was "punched in the boobs" at a party. Another was...
