Here’s a shocking piece of news for you: College sorority girls prance around, often in rather skimpy clothing, while engaging in generally mindless activities like, er . . . prancing around. They also put on makeup. They also shake their groove thangs and know perfectly well that you’re going to help yourself to a look. And if they want other girls to be interested in joining them, they know that the best way to make that happen is to show themselves, you...

    01/11/2014 8:13:28 AM PST · by armydawg505 · 20 replies ^ | 1/10/2014 | John Zenor
    Alabama hired former Southern California coach Lane Kiffin on Friday as its offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Kiffin returns to the Southeastern Conference after head coaching stints with the NFL's Oakland Raiders, Alabama rival Tennessee and the Trojans. He replaces Doug Nussmeier, who left Alabama for Michigan. "He is an outstanding and creative offensive coach who has great experience both at the college and NFL level," coach Nick Saban said in a statement. "He has a very good understanding of the game and I have always been impressed with what I saw in the games he called. He coaches with...

The sect targeted mostly children and women in the Zaria attacks. The sect spokesperson Abu Qaqa said the current massacre of christians was done to avenge the past killings of Muslims and desecration of Mosques in Zonkwa, Yelwan Shendam, Tafawa Balewa, where they said Mosques were turned into brothels and drinking joints, while Christians continue to carry on...

    James Davis is fighting to keep the remains of his late wife right where he dug her grave: In the front yard of his home, just a few feet from the porch. Davis said he was only abiding by Patsy Ruth Davis' wishes when he buried her in 2009, yet the city (has now) sued to move her. A county judge ordered Davis to disinter his wife, but the ruling is on hold as the Alabama Civil Court of Appeals considers his challenge. Davis, 73, said he never expected such a fight.

    This was absolutely awful. Barack Obama made another horrible mistake today. The president visited the 10th Mountain Division today and congratulated them on their service. Then he told the soldiers that he had given the Medal of Honor to Jared Monti who came back from Iraq alive. Jared Monti was actually killed in Iraq in 2006. How sad. “First time I saw 10th Mountain Division, you guys were in southern Iraq. When I went back to visit Afghanistan, you guys were the first ones there.

    Although I have written several columns expressing my admiration for Sarah Palin, I admit I have never taken her seriously as a 2012 presidential candidate. I've always felt that her greatest asset was as a kingmaker and behind the scenes advisor. In addition I've assumed that she wasn't that interested in pursuing the job but rather enjoyed making waves in the liberal media. The more I read the continuing attacks on Palin and her family I've started wondering why the Democrats and their media lapdogs fear her so much. Even some conservative pundits have determined that she is unelectable because...

    Donald Trump has released a copy of his original birth certificate…which is something every single Republican should do…and not just ones running for president. But Trump does not understand the real issue here: Obama is hiding something written on the “name” line of the certificate. Obama was indeed born in Hawaii in 1961…but he was adopted in Indonesia in the late-60s or early 70s. At the time of his adoption, his name was legally changed to something like Soetorabakh Soetoro…because Indonesian naming convention is so unusual, there are many possibilities for how his adopted name could be spelled (like all...

    commentary magazine ^ | 03.24.2011 | Jonathan S. Tobin
    Sarah Palin is a magnet for criticism and sometimes deserves it. But not always. Palin’s trip to Israel this week was, like everything else she does, interpreted as part of a pre-presidential candidacy tour. Thus, it was no surprise that her statements while in Israel and about it afterward generated the usual scorn that anything she says produces. An on-line discussion at Politico about her comments was headlined on its homepage as concerning “Palin’s idiotic comments about Israel.” So how “idiotic” were they? The correct answer is not very. During an interview on FOX News’s Greta Van Susteren show Wednesday...

Today PPP officially beclowned itself, releasing a poll which, among other things, pitted Charlie Sheen against, respectively, Barack Obama and Sarah Palin. Do serious pollsters engage in such publicity stunts? But it gets even worse, because PPP cherry picked the data to spin the poll against Sarah Palin, with this headline, Palin trails Sheen with independents. And indeed, according to the cross-tabs, Sheen...

    Here’s an excellent read by Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection. He’s calling the Lamestream Media’s efforts on the part of the Left “Operation Demoralize”, which is the game plan for re-electing Obama president. It essentially boils down to what I call Eeyore-breeding, which is easier than propagating rabbits in Republican ranks. I have never understood why, but conservative people in general just seem to be a naturally pessimistic lot who believe almost everything they see on TV if it’s negative news about a Republican. ”We’re doomed!”, “Woe is us!”, and “We might as well just give up, or not even...

    Well, using the very same standard the left wing, and their corrupt media partners have used to smear and slander Sarah Palin, all evidence says yes, Barack Øbama may have very well inspired radical Marxist Jared Lee Loughner to commit mass murder. As we reported earlier, Loughner has been fixated on Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, one of the many victims, since at least 2007, long before the Tea Party was formed, or anyone knew who the hell Sarah Palin was. Of course, seeing as how Loughner is against everything Sarah Palin and the Tea Party stand for, it’s highly unlikely he...

Rubin hits hard with: He displays contempt for Americans who don’t agree with his flawed policies, in effect instructing them to shut up. But his arrogance is both unwise (these people vote!) and undeserved. Had he not spent trillions on a flawed Keynesian economics, had he not botched the Middle East peace talks, had he not misread the mullahs, had he not mistaken appeasement for “reset” with Russia, and had he not hired ill-prepared senior advisers (who now must be cast off), his self-satisfaction might...

Following the shock defeat of the Democratic candidate in Massachusetts on Tuesday, a move that deprived the president of his 60-seat super-majority in the Senate and left his legislative agenda in tatters, Mr Obama has just four days to reboot the system. The US president had originally delayed next week’s State of the Union address to Congress in the hope he would get his signature healthcare reform bill enacted in time. That prospect,...

    WASHINGTON — Military commanders are drawing up plans for a faster withdrawal of American troops from Iraq in anticipation that President-elect Barack Obama will reject current proposals as too slow, Pentagon and military officials said Wednesday. The new plans would provide alternatives to a timetable drawn up by the top American commanders for Iraq to bring troops home more slowly than Mr. Obama promised during his presidential campaign. Those plans were described to Mr. Obama last month. The officials said that Mr. Obama had not requested the new plans, but that they were being prepared in response to public statements...

    Barack Obama plans to take his oath of office, as president of the United States, on a Holy Bible, once owned by Abraham Lincoln. Many leftist reporters have enthused over the symbolism. They truly think there is some mystical connection between the Hawaii-born, half-Kenyan, Harvard-educated street agitator, and the Kentucky-born, self-educated, great emancipator, and savior of the Union, Lincoln. Many conservative commentators criticize these comparisons of Lincoln and Obama, rightly, it is true, by pointing out that, aside from being elected to ever higher political office, Obama really “hasn’t done anything" for America. Clearly, Barry hasn’t freed an entire people...
