  • Gay Panic: Jenner, Rubio, Cruz Shock Parochial Mainstream Media

    Breitbart's Big Journalism ^ | April 25, 2015 | John Nolte
    Our bubbled mainstream media got a serious crash-course in reality this week with the revelations that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio don’t hate gays, and that Bruce Jenner, who is in the process of transitioning into a woman, remains a Christian Republican. During a two-hour interview Friday night, Jenner said to a noticeably puzzled Diane Sawyer, “I’ve always been more on the conservative side.” Still in shock, Sawyer then asked if he’s a Republican. Jenner responded in the affirmative, ”Yeah. Is that a bad thing? I believe in the Constitution.” Jenner also said he was a Christian and not a...

    It happens every Monday morning in offices around the country. I'll call it the weekend recap (or the "Anything that you did I'm sure my kid did it better" debrief) and when a few youth sports dads get together the "I'll one-up-ya" can escalate faster than a Witch Creek Canyon wildfire. If you aren't familiar with one of these conversations, consider yourself blessed. But, if you haven't been so fortunate, I must take you to the dark side. It's a magical mystery tour like no other.

    Coaches can't worry about being liked, by players or their parents. If you are worried about being liked, coaching is probably not the best profession to pursue. Even worse, if you are making promises in the pursuit of being liked, it will come back to haunt you.

    There is plenty of blame to go around for both McHenry and Advanced Towing. People should not be demanding her firing unless and until the complete and unedited tape is released. As everyone knows by now, ESPN’s Britt McHenry gained a lot more fame than she ever had on the sidelines when she had a recent run-in with a woman clerk at a towing company. McHenry showed up to get her car that had been towed from the parking lot of a northern Virginia Chinese restaurant. She had left the vehicle in the parking lot all night. A security tape...

    In a video of what appears to be ESPN reporter Britt McHenry berating a parking lot attendant has surfaced. McHenry is shown making fun of the woman’s features, and even asking her “Do you know who I am?” McHenry is visibly upset, although we are unable to see what may have pushed to her treating the attendant so poorly in the video that clearly had some portions edited out of it. McHenry can be heard saying, “I’m in the news sweetheart, I will f—ing sue this place.” “Do you feel good about your job? So I could be a college...

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, who recently announced plans to retire, rebutted conservative media speculation on Wednesday that his severe injuries are the result of a run-in with the mob. On CNBC's "Speakeasy," host John Harwood asked Reid about theories put forth by conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh and Breitbart News that the injuries Reid sustained at the beginning of this year, including a blow to his right eye, are not, as he has said, the result of an accident involving elastic exercise equipment. "The last few days, a bunch of people are saying, Reid, he didn't have an exercise...

    In its wisdom the University of Michigan decided it should still show a movie so it replaced "American Sniper" with Paddington. Yep, that Paddington. The one about a Bear...who talks...and wears a rubbery maize hat. One of the greatest schools in the world cancelled the showing of a movie that would spark discussion and debate in exchange for a movie about a talking caniform. If you asked someone to define higher ed in America today this was it.

    Coach Knight didn't hesitate to push young people, or anyone who worked with him to the very edge of their emotional and physical capacity. That was the only way that he thought he could get the very most out of our generally lazy human nature. We were always highly prepared because we didn't want to receive the wrath of Coach if we weren't, or even more so we didn't want to let him down.

The entire team seems to be relishing the prospect of playing a friendly on U.S. soil for the first time this year after twin friendlies in France and England followed by the 4-game Algarve Cup victory last month in Portugal to make the U.S. 4-1-1 so far in 2015.

    The passage of SB 101 right before the NCAA men’s basketball Final Four weekend in Indianapolis has generated more discussion on the topic of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) athletes than we have seen since Michael Sam came out right before entering the NFL draft. NCAA president Mark Emmert swiftly issued a statement expressing his concern “about how this legislation could affect our student-athletes and employees,” and showed his interest in protecting those attending or competing in the Men's Final Four. This position from the NCAA marks a clear shift in how far we have come as a movement...

    On the March 20 episode of Real Time With Bill Maher, NBC Sportscaster Bob Costas laughed off criticism of his many pro-gun control comments and added to them by asking if people really believe the Founding Fathers wanted “private citizens… to purchase cop-killer, armor-piercing bullets” and an “AK-47″? Maher opened the door for Costas to do so by citing topics Costas has spoken on –“gay, guns, head injuries”– and suggesting Costas “has to” talk about these things because not other “sportscaster” or “broadcaster” is doing it. The focus then turned to Costas’ April 2014 suggestion that athletes can’t be trusted...

    One of the more-interesting discussions I've had over the years on a fairly consistent basis deals with the premise of prepping -- usually initiated by someone who's talking about a bug-out location, firearms, (freeze-dried or home-grown) food or (usually) all of the above. Let's dissect this a bit, because the word prepping or prepper describe a lot of different things -- and frankly, the more I hear about some of them the more I nod in approval at some, while smirking at others. I think it's time we have this discussion, particularly given the rather-precarious nature of our global economy...

Number 7 shot is not common any more.  It is a useful size shot for everything from ducks to dove, but now...

    Julie Johnston and Christen Press scored first-half goals, and the USWNT got revenge for their February loss by defeating France 2-0 in the final of the Algarve Cup. US Manager Jill Ellis had come under some fire this tournament for her erratic lineup selections and tactics that often didn’t suit the strengths of her selected players, but today things within the 4-4-2 seemed to click. The performance was wire-to-wire, and all parts of the formation contributed to the result. The first half was entertaining, but things seemed to slow in the second half as both teams felt the fatigue from...

    As we are speeding into the month of March, many of us “shot-gunners” are thinking about (or should be) preparing for the spring turkey season. I want to caution you about merely grabbing the shotgun off the wall, and heading off to the woods. Success comes from having confidence in your weapon, and we achieve this by doing some shooting and knowing what the gun will do. First, remember that this turkey shooting deal, in the spring, has evolved into something more like rifle shooting than “shot-gunning.” Ideally we are aiming, not pointing the gun, at a small, stationary target...

He basically acknowledges that he’s sorry he got caught but would do it all again. Dr. Murray’s focus is on repentance, trying to apply it to our own lives which can be difficult in light of the fact that Armstrong isn’t a Christian. Lance Armstrong has always been an odd character. He was involved in a sport that no one in America cares about except the...

That’s what my four year-old says whenever we race from the bedroom to the kitchen, or up and down the driveway, or whatever he decides is now a competition.  He’s learned from his TV shows* that “cheaters never win”, and therefore anyone who doesn’t  win, must be a cheater.  And even if you do cheat, if you win, you haven’t cheated, because winners never cheat. My son has summed up liberal thought perfectly. In his four year-old brain, he’s failed to make the leap that winning by cheating robs you of the win, and that...

    News broke Friday evening that one of the greatest baseball players to ever play the game, Ernie Banks, had passed away at the age of 83. The man lovingly known as “Mr. Cub” spent his enter major league career with the North Side franchise, slugging 512 home runs and winning two NL MVP awards. The 14-time All-Star started his playing career in the Negro Leagues and was the first black player to put on a Chicago Cubs uniform. Despite playing for the perennially bottom-dwelling Cubbies, his optimism and love of the game never wavered, as evidenced by his famous quote,...

    In an emotion filled interview at the conclusion of Sunday's NFC Championship Game, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson perfectly reflected the powerful optimism that faith in God brings.  For a young man headed to his second Super Bowl and on top of the NFL in only his third season, he also displayed the refreshing humility of a true leader of men and follower of Christ. His humble optimism is a key component to a faith in God which is often derided or dismissed by the non-believer, and far too often forgotten or taken for granted by the believer. For Russell Wilson and entire Seattle Seahawks team, much...

    Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton (D) is pushing for a law that would ban football game kick-offs before noon. “The early start times are really unfair to the poor and minorities, many of whom are still in bed at that hour,” Dayton claimed. “These start times may be okay for people who are used to getting up early to go to work, but they are out of sync with other lifestyles.” Setting a time more accommodating to these “other lifestyles” is important because “watching TV is a much bigger part of the lives of those on public assistance. They shouldn’t be...

    Senator Harry Reid was injured when a home exercise apparatus he was using collapsed under him. The former Majority Leader suffered broken bones in his face and ribs. Though his injuries were described as "relatively minor," Reid's anger at the Koch brothers was not. "I don't know how they did it, but their insidious campaign of terror against this country's legitimate leaders must be stopped," Reid demanded. Doubtful that a judicial remedy could suffice due to lack of evidence, Reid vowed he would "call upon the President to utilize his newly asserted executive authority to ensure that justice is meted...

    Michael Sam is again dominating NFL headlines. You’ll recall that Sam announced he was a homosexual before the NFL Draft. He was then drafted by the St. Louis Rams but didn’t make the team. He was signed to the Dallas Cowboys practice squad but was cut from that as well. Having done absolutely nothing in the NFL, Oprah Winfrey interviewed him and now he’s all the rage again within the liberal sports media. Let’s be clear about Sam, he hasn’t played a single down of football in the NFL. He’s no hero, he’s a washed up linebacker who simply doesn’t...
