  • 5-foot-tall Kacy Catanzaro conquers 'American Ninja Warrior' course

    07/17/2014 8:09:48 PM PDT · by RedStateRocker · 25 replies
    You don’t need to be tall to be an “American Ninja Warrior.” Kacy Catanzaro shocked “Ninja” viewers with her height-defying performance on an impossibly challenging obstacle course that required the 5-foot-tall former NCAA Southeast Regional Gymnast of the Year to leap through the air. Though Catanzaro’s height should have hindered her from completing the course, she breezed through some of the toughest obstacles, conquering every last one to become the first woman ever to make it through the Dallas finals and qualify for the Las Vegas finals round.

    Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said he wants thousands of undocumented children from the border to be in Dallas by the end of July, adding that one of three proposed housing sites is a Parkland Hospital warehouse that needs to be fixed. However, according to at least one county commissioner, several steps must be taken before renovations can begin on taxpayer-funded county buildings. “There's been no declaration of an emergency at the federal level, state level, or the county level, so therefore if he's trying to operate within some type of Homeland Security emergency declaration, that hasn't occurred, so that...

What made this already big news even bigger is the fact that the original call for proposals came out in January, long before the bulk of the illegal alien surge began. The breaking news you’re about to read is ten times bigger, because the following proves the Obama administration was bankrolling America’s churches back in 2010....

    If you're upset with the Cowboys' placement at No. 24, just know that placing them even lower was considered. Ultimately, it's tough to rank a team coming off an 8-8 season lower than this, but there are a lot of warning signs that this is going to be a very ugly year in Dallas. The defense was bad last season, and arguably the three best players are gone. Defensive end DeMarcus Ware was cut. Defensive tackle Jason Hatcher signed with Washington. Linebacker Sean Lee is already out for the year with a torn ACL suffered in an offseason practice. You...

    Unaccompanied children are crossing at an alarming rate, and now many will be heading to Dallas.

Judge Jenkins announced that Dallas County would be the first county in the state to offer housing. Terry Henderson is in charge of disaster relief for the Texas Baptist Men. He's been waiting an announcement like this for more than a month. "I kind of had a heads up no matter where it was going to happen in Texas that we were going to be involved...

Elisabeth Wilson with the Dallas Hispanic bar Association says that some of the cases would not end there. She says that they have a training...

    Twenty-two years ago I craved justification for my homosexuality. I had decided I was gay, and I felt utterly incapable of changing my sexual desires. Instead of conforming my actions to biblical standards, I chose to adjust biblical standards to accommodate my actions. My subsequent six-year involvement as a staff member of the pro-homosexual Metropolitan Community Church became the fruit of that compromise and remains a source of deep regret to this day. During my tenure as a self-professed “gay Christian,” I was often confronted by believers who argued the standard passages on homo­sexuality. Like anyone steeped in propaganda, however,...

Cardan Spencer and Amy Wilburn were both charged with aggravated assault by a public servant. Spencer was indicted last week after shooting a 52-year-old man standing several feet away from him. A police report filed in the case initially claimed the man, Bobby Bennett, lunged at Spencer with a knife. A neighbor’s surveillance video camera captured video that showed Bennett was several feet from the officers and didn’t appear to move...

But on his way to the scene, he saw a black man, 62-year-old Ronald Jones, crossing the street. Antkowiak claimed that Jones was throwing beer bottles. He stopped his car and approached Jones.

    For all these years, they’ve hidden the truth about the Kennedy assassination. It didn’t require a conspiracy. It just took repeating a falsehood until it was accepted as conventional wisdom. The myth about the Kennedy assassination is that President John F. Kennedy, at great personal risk, traveled to Dallas a.k.a. the City of Hate, and was somehow murdered by an atmosphere of intolerance. The truth is that he was shot by a communist. As James Piereson writes in his brilliant book Camelot and the Cultural Revolution, liberals had the choice after the assassination to make Kennedy a martyr to civil...

    The president is a socialist. He is neutering the United States on the world stage. He is spending us into bankruptcy. He is hellbent on expanding national health care, which will surely lead to government death panels. He is advancing big-government agendas everywhere from Main Street to Wall Street. And do we really know the truth about his personal history and religion? Perhaps the man in the Oval Office should be impeached — even tried for treason. If today’s extremist rhetoric sounds familiar, that’s because it is eerily, poignantly similar to the vitriol aimed squarely at John F. Kennedy during...

The video was released by Project Veritas, which was started by conservative activist James O'Keefe. O'Keefe gained notoriety for videos in 2009 that eventually brought down ACORN. The Urban League said in a statement on Tuesday it "does not condone, nor would...

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Now, I am the first to say that the first month I have not been happy with. You've all heard about the website woes. Nothing drives me more crazy than the fact that right now, there is great insurance to be had out there -- choice and competition -- where people can save money for a better product, except too many folks have not been able to get through the website. Now, this is like having a really good product in the store and the cash registers don't work and there aren't enough parking spots and nobody can...

    G-men interviewed Chicago mobster Jimmy "the Monk" Allegretti only a week after the November 22, 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy in order to determine whether he had any connections to Jack Ruby who on November 24 had killed supposed assassin Lee Harvey Oswald according to the recently released FBI file on Allegretti. Allegretti was the Rush Street crew boss who ran the vice rackets -- gay bars, strip clubs, whore houses, gambling dens -- from the mid-1940s to the mid-1960s on the Near North Side for Chicago Outfit underboss Ross Prio, and in the FBI interview he denied...

    Forty-nine years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy former mob buster Robert Blakey contends the most likely explanation from the available evidence is that the Mafia was responsible as reported by Tovin Lapan for the Las Vegas Sun: "I think the mob set Oswald up as a patsy. It's not that I think (Oswald) didn't shoot (Kennedy), but that I think he was set up so (investigators) would focus on the Cuban connections (and not the mob). Did the mob do it? I don't know for sure, but it explains more of the evidence than anything else." Blakey,...

    I realize that delving into the world of assassination research and a belief in a conspiracy will lead some to brand me as an extremist or a nut, but the facts I have uncovered are so compelling that I must make the case that Lyndon Baines Johnson had John Fitzgerald Kennedy murdered in Dallas to become president himself and to avert the precipitous political and legal fall that was about to beset him. Snip When Lodge was in his eighties, he served vigorously as the chairman of Ronald Reagan’s campaign for President in Connecticut, a post I had recruited him...

    Dan Rather excluded from CBS' anniversary coverage of Kennedy assassination Published: November 5, 2013 1:57 PM By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The 50th-anniversary coverage of the Kennedy assassination on CBS News won't include the recollections of its longtime anchor Dan Rather, further proof of the lingering bitterness following Rather's messy exit and subsequent lawsuit against the network. Rather helped organize CBS' plans for President John F. Kennedy's visit to Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, and as a young reporter was a key component of assassination coverage. Now 82, with his own show on AXS-TV, he's one of the few reporters on...

    And so it begins – the plentiful coverage of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy. The date itself is weeks away and there will be countless commemorative programs, specials and copious punditry on TV. JFK: The Smoking Gun (Sunday, Discovery, 8 p.m.) is one of the most controversial of the bunch. Made for the tiny U.S. cable channel Reelz, it’s a two-hour docudrama based on the book of the same name by former Australian police detective Colin McLaren. He claims to have spent years on “the forensic cold-case investigation of JFK’s assassination” and says...

Last month, Highland Park Presbyterian leadership unanimously approved a resolution to begin the process of dismissal from PC (USA). The Session recommended dismissal from the mainline denomination and membership into the newer more...
