    Corey Hawkins will star in the pilot for “24: Legacy” — the “24” revival series in the works at Fox — Variety has learned. The “Straight Outta Compton” alum has nabbed the leading role of Eric Carter in the pilot. As previously reported, the new “24” will not bring back Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer, so while Hawkins’ character is not a direct replacement, he will topline the potential series. (Sources tell Variety that while only a pilot has been ordered, “24: Legacy” is expected to land a 13-episode order.) Described as strong and smart, Eric came from a very rough...

    ACTION: Contact your Senators and urge them to cosponsor S. 477, the Firearms Manufacturers and Dealers Protection Act of 2015. Operation Choke Point a Threat to the Second Amendment About a year ago, the Second Amendment community was rocked by news that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) had teamed up with Attorney General Eric Holder to utterly destroy firearms manufacturers and dealers by cutting off all credit and banking relationships with them.For its part, the FDIC categorized gun and ammunition sales as a "high-risk business," lumping it in with drug dealers, pornographers, and Ponzi scheme operators -- all of...

    Whether you've had some form of head trauma that has caused you to like Barack Obama or like all good hearted people, you can't stand him, his performance has objectively been terrible. Of course, we can debate WHY his performance has been so bad. His supporters would probably blame Bush, Republicans in Congress, ATM machines, fairy dust shortages and people forgetting to click their heels together three times before saying, "There's no place like home." On the other hand, people who haven't been drinking Barney Frankosaurus brand Kool-Aid might note that if Obama is going to blame Republicans for everything...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) The wife of a Florida high school football coach being held on a murder charge said Friday her husband was defending himself when he threw a punch that authorities say killed a Utah man in a Las Vegas Strip casino. Benjamin Hawkins, 37, pleaded not guilty Friday during a brief appearance before a Las Vegas judge. The judge scheduled a Tuesday bail hearing and set a July 21 date to hear evidence in the early Wednesday slaying of John Massie, 46, of Roy, Utah.
  • 10 Ways Conservatives Should Give Liberals Exactly What They Say They Want

    There's way too much fussin' and fightin' in politics, isn't there? In Rodney King's immortal words, "I just want to say, you know, can we all get along?" CAN WE all get along, folks? Can we conservatives cooperate and show just a little bit more of that unity that our valiant President, Barack Obama, promised us all back in 2008? Many of you reading this column are undoubtedly saying, "No, we can't afford to cooperate with the Left! When liberals say they want 'unity,' what they really mean is that we should give them everything they want and call it...

    Forbes ^ | 11/18/2010 | Colin Barr
    There's something about quantitative easing that bothers just about everyone - including, believe it or not, Fed chief Ben Bernanke. But in contrast to his many critics, Bernanke's problem lies not with the policy itself, in which the Federal Reserve has pledged to buy $600 billion worth of Treasury bonds over eight months in its latest bid to bring down interest rates and stimulate the economy. What's in a name? No, Bernanke's beef is that what the Fed is doing isn't properly called quantitative easing, as he reminded everyone in his speech Friday. Incidentally, in my view, the use of...

    If future generations of Americans are going to have a bright future, we're going to have to get a handle on spending. Either we get these deficits under control and start paying off our debt or we're not going to remain a great nation. Moreover, given that Social Security went into the red last year and that program, combined with Medicare, represents a 100 trillion dollar unfunded liability thats going to be coming due over the next few decades, this is an issue thats not going away for the foreseeable future. So, with that in mind, fiscal conservatives in DC...

    Conservatives are sick and tired of being taken for granted, misrepresented, and talked down to by the same "elite" Republicans in Washington who hopelessly screwed everything up during the Bush years. Everybody knows exactly whom we're talking about here. The same snobby, elitist, stuffed shirt, squishy, poll-obsessed Country Club Republicans who went to D.C., forgot who put them there, wasted the incredible opportunity they had to change this country for the better, and are now pointing the finger at everyone except themselves for their mistakes. Here are five messages for those people: We're not going back to the Bush years:...

    Yesterday, I came across an article about an Alabama gubernatorial candidate named Robert Bentley who is proposing an amendment to the state constitution that would make causing or participating in an abortion a crime. Under his proposal, abortions of pregnancies that are the result of rape or incest would be allowed. Abortions would also be allowed in cases where the pregnancy threatened the life of the mother. Bentley says that he cares “about the life of unborn children. We need people who will stand up for unborn children in this country.'' While I agree wholeheartedly with this statement, it is...

  • Seven Reasons Why the GOP Comeback Will Begin in 2010

    Although trying to play Nostradamus with U.S. politics is always a risky endeavor, particularly this early in a political cycle, the odds would seem to heavily favor a GOP comeback in 2010. Here's why the smart money should be on Elephants instead of Donkeys: 1) History is on our side: Typically, the party in power loses "23 seats in the U.S. House and two in the U.S. Senate in a new presidents first midterm election." Certainly, that's not always the case. For example, George Bush actually gained seats in the post-9/11 environment that the GOP ran in back in 2002,...

    According to a self-appointed prophet in the holy city of Abilene, Texas, the Great Tribulation begins today. Sorry folks but nuclear war will start today according to Buffalo Bill Hawkins and his devoted followers--all surnamed Hawkins--at the House of Yahweh. Apparently God (excuse me Yahweh and Yeshua) agree with Osama Bin Laden and Iran's President. And though the USA may try as it might to be the shining light upon the hill, the best nation on earth due to its constitutional freedoms, it's too little too late! God is really angry with us, and HE means to prove it this...

    I remember quite well the very last time I saw General Vann. He was home from the war and I had dropped by to visit Pete. He told me not to go downstairs and to just stay in the living room. This was rather new to me. General Vann came out to see us a few times and to talk to the family. He liked to have his tea in the living room at the coffee table. I didnt see who was there and knew I didnt want to look either. A day or two later Pete and I were...
