    On November 14, 1970, a chartered jet carrying most of the Marshall University football team clips a stand of trees and crashes into a hillside just two miles from the Tri-State Airport in Kenova, West Virginia. The team was returning from that day’s game, a 17-14 loss to East Carolina University. Thirty-seven Marshall football players were aboard the plane, along with the team’s coach, its doctors, the university athletic director and 25 team boosters–some of Huntington, West Virginia’s most prominent citizens–who had traveled to North Carolina to cheer on the Thundering Herd. “The whole fabric,” a citizen of Huntington wrote...

    Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson demolished Florida State yesterday, rushing for four touchdowns and throwing for one more in a dominant 63-20 win. Next up is a road game against Marshall University, but Marshall is already preparing for to stop Jackson, by digging a huge pit in the end zone. “Here’s the plan,” said Marshall head coach Doc Holliday. “We dig a big old pit in the end zone. We cover it with sticks and leaves and stuff. Within the first three or four seconds of the game, Lamar probably runs it in for a touchdown. Boom, he falls in the...

    NY Times ^ | July 20, 2016
    Garry Marshall, ‘Pretty Woman’ Director, Dies at 81 If one were to count up the number of times any American — or maybe anyone anywhere — laughed in the last half-century, the person responsible for more of those laughs than anyone else might well be Garry Marshall, who died on Tuesday in Burbank, Calif. He was 81. The lawyer Martin Garbus, who was a childhood friend of Mr. Marshall’s, said he died after a series of strokes. It would be difficult to overstate Mr. Marshall’s effect on American entertainment. His work in network television and Hollywood movies fattened the archive...

    The Stand ^ | Monday, May 9, 2016 | Bryan Fischer
    The Constitution gives absolutely no authority, none, to the federal government to dictate marriage policy to the states. *** *** When the Obergefell case was decided by the Supreme Court, its ruling legally applied only to the plaintiffs before it, as is true in any case before any court. The concept of “judicial review” - in which the Court, and not Congress, gets to decide what the law is - is not found in the Constitution anywhere. It was invented out of the ether by Chief Justice John Marshall in 1803 as a way for the Court to grant dictatorial...

    Why do Catholics in America support homosexuality proportionately more than the general population? Two reasons: lack of authentic Catholic teaching regarding homosexuality, and the Church omitted one of the clearest Bible verses on homosexuality from the lectionary. One of the very unfortunate results of the New Lectionary is that verses that might be deemed offensive have been omitted from our liturgical celebrations. (I've written about how three "offensive" Psalms were removed from the Liturgy of the Hours after 1971 here.) Verses against Homosexuality Omitted from Current LectionaryAn example of the silence of offensive passages is from the readings of last...

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 2-2-15 | Lahav Harkov
    Herzog exercised his right to remain silent during the investigation, which was closed because there was not enough evidence to press charges. A public campaign to change the political leadership is the Left’s corrupt attempt to buy an election victory, a Likud campaign said Saturday. The comments referred to V15, an organization dedicated to bringing political change that is partnered with OneVoice Israel, which works with Israelis and Palestinians to lobby their political leadership to bring about a two-state solution. The Likud said V15’s activities break campaign finance laws, comparing them to the “Barak nonprofits affair,” in which former prime...

    A government money grab that's been operating under the guise of public safety might soon be ended. Legislation to scrap Michigan's "driver responsibility fees" has overwhelming support in the Legislature. In 2003, state lawmakers passed a bill that assessed "driver responsibility fees" in an effort to bring in additional revenue. The move was thinly veiled as a measure to ensure drivers were operating vehicles safely. However, the fees often go beyond simply assigning stiffer penalties for unsafe driving practices. In many instances they pile on costs that individuals don't have the ability to pay. What's more, under certain circumstances they...

    The Internet and news sources are all abuzz with the brutal suppression of the Liturgical life of Fisher More College by the newly installed bishop of Fort Worth. In a summary act, without a hearing or even an opportunity to be heard and without even informing the College of their purported offenses, he illicitly declared the college under an effective interdict. Yes, he did not invoke a true canonical interdict. That would have required at least a façade of a canonical proceedings and a post-trial appeal process. Rather, he simply in a pure act of fiat legal positivism declared a...

    It was with great sorrow that I learned of Dr. Taylor Marshall’s public criticism of me and his allegations concerning affairs at Fisher More College. I am saddened for our students and staff, for our College, for Catholics suffering through this incredible fury of ugliness, and for my wife and children. But I am especially saddened for Dr. Marshall. He was always treated well by the College, by me personally, and by my family, and we will continue to act in charitable consideration of him and his deserving family. As with all personnel matters, I will not comment publicly on...
  • Fox Leftist Leslie Marshall Blames Amb. Chris Stevens for His Death During Benghazi

    Want to see just how disgusting leftist hags can be? Look no further than Fox News leftist Leslie Marshall. She looks like she’s begun her Thanksgiving feast about a month early, and as usual was full of hot air. But today, Leslie Marshall crossed the line in progressive liberal Democrat vile. She tried to defend Obama and Hillary Clinton despite the damning Benghazi report that came out on 60 minutes yesterday. Instead of placing any blame on Obama or Hillary Clinton for failing to properly secure the consulate, Leslie Marshall actually blamed Ambassdor Chris Stevens for his own death that...

    According to Soviet intelligence reports, we now know that one of FDR’s top officials, the Treasury Department’s Harry Dexter White, was a Soviet agent, who, among many other deceptions, subverted relations between the US and Japan by inserting “ultimatum” language into the cable flow that actually spurred the Japanese attack. This was language written in Moscow, passed to White by a Soviet handler in Washington, D.C., and dropped into a State Department communiqué sent to Japan. This brilliantly executed influence operation doesn’t live in infamy – at least not yet. ... “A continuous stream of fighter and pursuit planes is...

    We are reluctant to sound unkind to the pro-family legal people who worked hard on these cases. But this is such a horrible outcome that something must be said. Both of these cases suffered from an unaggressive and short-sighted approach that bordered on incompetence. The pro-family side did not present a credible case in either of these cases. They were deathly afraid that telling the truth about homosexuality might offend someone. By not effectively countering the absurd arguments and assumptions by the homosexual movement, they made it easy for the judges to rule as they did. ... In the Federal...

    Mourning: End of the Defense of Marriage in US federal law By Julio Severo In a historical decision, the Supreme Courte issued today (June 26, 2013) two rulings against natural family. In response to demands from gay supremacists, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) was invalidated in the protection that it granted to natural marriage against the gay “marriage” ideology. The Supreme Court found unconstitutional federal law upholding “marriage as only between a man and a woman.” What will follow next? A decision saying that it is unconstitutional a marriage among only human beings, opening the doors to other...

    In a bizarre op-ed in The Charleston Gazette last week, journalism professor Christopher Swindell argued that the National Rifle Association “advocates armed rebellion against the duly elected government of the United States of America.” Stirring words, to be sure, but Swindell was hardly done — not even close. He also said that the NRA is guilty of “treason” “worthy of the firing squad.” “To support the new NRA president’s agenda of arming the populace for confrontation with the government is bloody treason,” Swindell charged in his wacky essay. After briefly playing the race card and alluding to the Civil War,...

That’s not allowed at his school. [video] The boy has good grades and has never caused any problems in classes before. FOX 43 reported, via Legal Insurrection: A Suffolk school suspended a second grader for pointing a pencil at another student and making gun noises. Seven-year-old Christopher Marshall says he was playing with another student in class Friday, when the teacher at Driver Elementary asked them to stop pointing pencils at each other. “When...
