    An anti-racism rally planned at the University of Colorado, Boulder, to show solidarity with University of Missouri black activists was cancelled because the protest organizers arewhite. However, a check of one of the event planner’s Facebook page reveals that isn’t the case. The rally was killed under pressure from the CU’s Black Student Alliance, whose co-president Paris Ferribee said, “It’s not anyone that’s being affected telling the story, it’s only white people telling the story.” The rally was planned by students in a CU course called “Whiteness Studies.” Azabe Kassa posted an apology on the group’s Facebook page: On behalf...

    Maybe he had one too many martinis but Daniel Craig was in full-on truth mode when he seemed to indicate in an interview with the UKs Time Out that his time as Britains favorite spy was over. When asked if the actor, who plays the iconic James Bond for a fourth time in the upcoming "Spectre," would do another 007 film, the answer was salty, to say the least. Id rather break this glass and slash my wrists, said Craig. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I...

    HORGOS, Serbia (AP) -- Hungary sealed off its border with Serbia with massive coils of barbed wire Tuesday and began detaining migrants trying to use the country as a gateway to Western Europe, harsh new measures that left thousands of frustrated asylum-seekers piled up on the Serbian side of the border. Human rights activists condemned the move, with Amnesty International saying Hungary's "intimidating show of militarized force is shocking." But Prime Minister Viktor Orban defended the measures, saying he was acting to preserve Christian Europe, which he said had become threatened by the large numbers of Muslims streaming into the...

    Science continues to prove the Bible on a regular basis. This time, archaeologists from Bar-Ilan University in Israel have uncovered what appears to be the hometown of the giant Goliath. The town, called Gath, was occupied until the ninth century B.C. In biblical accounts, the Philistines — the mortal enemies of the Israelites — ruled the city. The Old Testament also describes Gath as the home of Goliath, the giant warrior whom the Israelite King David felled with a slingshot.The new findings reveal just how impressive the ancient Philistine city once was, said lead archaeologist of the current excavation,...

The Catalan town of Badia del Valls announced the plan via a statement on the town hall website. "Every morning, three automatic dispensers will scatter the required dosage to the pigeon population," said the statement. Each pigeon will be fed 10 grams of Ovistop, a product made of corn seeds covered in Nicarbazin, which acts as a contraceptive for the birds. The first dispenser was installed on Monday July 13th near the town's Civil Guard headquarters,...

Im talking about the various LGBT victimhood centers that have popped up on our government university campuses in recent years. Naturally, I have good reasons for shutting them down.

    Border Security: As terror-torn France and other European countries put curbs on Islamic immigration, the Obama administration is waving foreign Muslim nationals into the U.S. in record numbers. According to a recent Center for Immigration Studies report, America between 2010 and 2013 imported more people from Muslim countries than Central America and Mexico combined. And now, with the president's executive amnesty, the welcome mat is bigger than ever. That's a major shift in immigration flows and one that poses a major national security threat. If just a fraction of these nearly 300,000 new Muslim immigrants follow in the footsteps...

When she spoke in October, Gaston Hall again was filled to capacity, the campus newspaper reported; some students lined up overnight and others were turned away.

John McCain (R-AZ) will be 80 years old, if or when he stands for re-election. On top of that, he's the establishment Republican many conservatives love to hate most and there are reasons to think he's vulnerable. Issues-wise, he's weak on immigration, the Bush tax cuts and cap and trade. There also appear to be viable challengers, should McCain opt to not retire, as many either wish, or believe he should.

There was no listed price for tickets for Obama's morning appearance at a roundtable in San Francisco for the House Majority PAC - the type of intimate gathering for which admission is usually $32,400 per person, the legal maximum. Some donors said tickets had been offered for a deep discount. And in Los Altos Hills, the heart of Silicon Valley big money, the...

The 26-year-old veteran of two tours in Afghanistan was finally able to tell his story to a judge, after his case had been delayed by both Mexico's unpredictable legal system and his own trouble settling on a lawyer. It was not immediately clear what Tahmooressi said at the evidentiary hearing, which was closed to the public. The next hearing...

In the process, he stated that the way had been paved for the same-sex marriage movement by Hollywood. "I think 'Will & Grace' probably did more to educate the American public than almost anything anybody's ever done so far." Biden, of course, was absolutely right: Hollywood's personalization of the societal issue of same-sex marriage has shifted millions of minds. Now, unfortunately for same-sex marriage advocates, Hollywood is busily shifting those minds back. On Sunday, the Grammys tooted its self-proclaimed righteousness...

    Since John Boehner became speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives on Jan. 5, 2011, the debt of the federal government has increased by $3,064,063,380,067.72. That is more than the total federal debt accumulated in the first 200 years of the U.S. Congressduring the terms of the first 48 speakers of the House. It also equals about $26,722 for each of the 114,663,000 households the Census Bureau estimates are now in the United States.

Rather than hide her sexual orientation, she opted to leave the academy. "In recent months, DC...

    The American people have lost faith in U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., and he must be replaced, a top GOP senator said Sunday. I lost confidence in the attorney general a long time ago over his cover-up of the Fast and Furious investigation, said Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, referencing Mr. Holders role in the infamous gunrunning scheme that went awry and cost the life of a U.S. Border Patrol agent. Calls for Mr. Holders ouster have grown louder since it was revealed the Justice Department gathered telephone records for at least 20 Associated Press editors and reporters...

    As the broadcast TV channels prepare to reveal their fall schedules this week, the renewed-or-canceled announcements that blasted out at the end of last week have already determined one characteristic of the 2013-14 TV season: It will be a lot more heterosexual than the current season, which officially ends next Wednesday.

Complex, Partners, and Southland, all of which featured gay or lesbian characters. (You can...

    Former first lady Barbara Bush said her son George W. Bush should be the last in the family line of presidents, rejecting the idea of a White House run for her other son, Jeb Bush. There are other people out there that are very qualified and weve had enough Bushes, she told TODAYs Matt Lauer on Thursday from inside her son's presidential library. When asked whether she expects Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, to make a presidential run, Mrs. Bush said there are many worthy candidates.

    A sign posted outside a Collin County nail salon promoting it as "American Owned, American Staffed" is generating controversy. The merchant defends her sign by saying it's a "patriotic business decision." But others believe it's focused more on what her Fairview business isnt: Asian owned and operated. Ed Thayer said he was offended when he saw the sign in the window of the St. Tropez Nail Spa. He's a regular customer at a Vietnamese restaurant next door. He and his wife adopted four girls who are Vietnamese-Americans. Thayer said he was so upset, he went into the salon to confront...

    Its week two of the presidents charm offensive, and already there is dissension in the ranks. Jay Carney, the occasionally charming spokesman for the newly charming president, began his daily media briefing Monday with a smile, a sunny disposition and a bit of percussion on the lectern. Bum-ba-da-bum-bum, he drummed with his hands. Happy Monday! began Carney, wearing a festive yellow tie and striking a casual pose. Good afternoon. Thanks for being here for your White House briefing. Spring is here early. But it was not long before the White House press secretary was back in his winter of discontent....
