  • Israeli says he has found King David’s citadel

    An Israeli archaeologist says he has found the legendary citadel captured by King David in his conquest of Jerusalem, rekindling a longstanding debate about using the Bible as a field guide to identifying ancient ruins. The claim by Eli Shukron, like many such claims in the field of biblical archaeology, has run into criticism. It joins a string of announcements by Israeli archaeologists saying they have unearthed palaces of the legendary biblical king, who is revered in Jewish religious tradition for establishing Jerusalem as its central holy city—but who has long eluded historians looking for clear-cut evidence of his existence...

    A group of like-minded patriots, bound together by pride in American exceptionalism, plan on building an armed community to protect their liberty. The group, named Citadel, intends to purchase 2,000 to 3,000 acres for the project in western Idaho. The community will comprise of 3,500 to 7,000 families of patriotic Americans who "voluntarily choose to live together in accordance with Thomas Jefferson's ideal of Rightful Liberty." According to the Citadel website, Rightful Liberty means that "neighbors keep their noses out of other neighbors' business, that neighbors live and let live."

    Yesterday, Phyllis Schlafly traveled to South Carolina to speak to at The Citadel, which now offers a course entitled the "Conservative Intellectual Tradition in America." Speaking to an all-male audience, Schlafly assured them that women don't care about the issue of contraception and warned them not to date feminists: The recent political flap about contraception being an important issue for women is completely contrived by Democrats and the media to divert attention from abortion and other important issues, said conservative political activist Phyllis Schlafly. “Contraception is not controversial,” she said. “The issue is not access. It’s who’s going to pay...

    (CNN) -- With many focused on the Penn State child sex abuse scandal, a South Carolina military college said Saturday it regrets not pursuing an allegation against a camp counselor further than it did. The Citadel released details on one of its alumni, Louis Neal "Skip" ReVille, who faces charges including criminal sexual conduct with a child. In 2007, the college received an allegation that five years earlier, ReVille invited two campers at The Citadel Summer Camp into his room to watch pornography. They did not touch each other, but engaged in sexual activity, the college said. "Though the general...

    HERAT, Afghanistan — In the 1970s, tourists traveled to western Afghanistan to climb on the ruins of an ancient citadel, a fortress resembling a sandcastle that has stood overlooking the city of Herat for thousands of years. The citadel was crumbling then, but today the newly restored structure, dating back to the days of Alexander the Great, is a hopeful sign of progress in a country beset by war. Hundreds of Afghan craftsmen worked to restore the ruins’ past glory with help from the Aga Khan Trust for Culture and about $2.4 million from the U.S. and German governments. The...

The victim in the case is one of Starks' own coaches at The Citadel, assistant coach Joshua Harpe of West Ashley. A police affidavit states Starks pointed "a handgun (semiauto) at the victim, struck him once in the head with the handgun and ordered him back into (the)...

    CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – Researchers seem to have solved the mystery of what happened to the “Big Red” flag flown by Citadel cadets when they fired on a ship trying to resupply Fort Sumter three months before the Civil War. The Post and Courier of Charleston reports a 10-by-7-foot flag with a large white Palmetto tree and a white crescent on a red field has been located in storage at an Iowa museum. Researchers think it is the same flag that flew over Morris Island when cadets fired on the supply ship Star of the West, forcing the ship to...

    CHARLESTON -- In the days leading to the Civil War, a battery of Citadel cadets on Morris Island fired at the supply ship “Star of the West” as it approached Fort Sumter, forcing the ship to turn around. A red palmetto flag flew over the cadets during the attack on Jan. 9, 1861, which marked a victory for them, and was a significant precursor to the war. The war officially began on April 12, 1861, with the Confederate bombardment of Fort Sumter. But some Citadel alumni and others consider the shots fired at “Star of the West” to be the...

Lindsey Graham shared Monday at The Citadel with cadets and a panel of military and law experts.

That’s if he wants to. And I think Citadel CEO Suleman was trying to explain the reasons why Sean should stay. Among them (and I’m guessing here): continued association with the storied call letters of WABC, WLS, KABC, etc. Will that be enough, followed up by serious expressions of monetary interest like a whale-sized signing bonus? We’ll find out by next Thursday. But I hear from two sources that Hannity and...

The anniversary date would be mid-June, and T-R-I says other "interested parties" may include "Hannity & Colmes" syndicator Fox, Clear Channel-owned Premiere, Jimmy deCastro's Content Factory - and Tribune, the new home of Hannity's...

How else can one explain the location and the format they've chosen for their next national debate? You see, on Monday, July 23rd, the South Carolina Democratic Party is hosting all the candidates at the Citadel. They arranged this knowing that an audience of uniformed cadets would attend, so as to offer the national television audience a tacit military endorsement for their leftist, anti-military positions. What's worse is my fellow students at the Citadel won't even be allowed to ask questions of the candidates....

Male cadets at the state military college have no locks on their barracks doors. Female cadets can lock their doors from the inside. The tradition had evolved in keeping with the spareness of military life and with the school's honor code, which mandates that cadets do not steal. Now, all cadets will get keys to lock their doors from the outside by next semester. Installing the locks will cost about...

The Mesopotamian settlement lies in Hamoukar, on the northernmost tip of Syria, 8 kilometres from the Iraqi border. In 3500 BC the 13-hectare development was subjected to a devastating attack, its edifices crumbling beneath a crushing hail of bullet-shaped projectiles.

Citadel Broadcasting Corp., which aired Stern's envelope-pushing syndicated show, opted to yank the program Monday because the host was devoting too much time to his impending switch to Sirius Satellite Radio, Stern told his listeners. Stern's decision to abandon terrestrial radio is often a topic of conversation on his show. Citadel felt the program had become "an infomercial" for Stern's next employer and pulled the plug, the shock jock said. Stern's show had aired on Citadel stations in...

The bill comes after a civil-liberties group warned that lunchtime grace at the Naval Academy may be unconstitutional.

Annapolis is the only federal academy where a chaplain leads grace before a meal with mandatory attendance. West Point doesn't offer a mealtime prayer; the Air Force Academy pauses...

    Sen. McCain Addresses Citadel Grads CHARLESTON, S.C.- America's war on terrorism is not only just, but will end with terrorists surrendering, Sen. John McCain told graduates of The Citadel on Saturday, as college students around the nation were given their traditional send-off.

"They fight to express an irrational hatred of all that is good in humanity, a hatred that has fallen time and again to the armies and ideals of the righteous," McCain said....
