  • Miss USA Contestants Blasted for Actually Giving Reasonable Answers This Year

    National Review ^ | 06/10/2014 | Andrew Johnson
    Beauty-pageant interviews tend to be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Usually, answers become famous by being the subject of mockery for a flubbed phrase or a nonsensical answer (see recent response by Miss South Carolina in 2007 and Miss Utah in 2013).But a couple contestants in Sunday’s Miss USA pageant drew attention for coherent answers on some relatively touchy issues. The problem was that Miss Nevada Nia Sanchez and Miss Louisiana Brittany Guidry’s views on a couple issues of the day didn’t sit well with liberal commentators.Take Sanchez, who went on to win the competition. When asked to...

    The woman representing Pennsylvania in the Miss USA 2014 pageant has opened up about how she was conceived when her mother was raped at knifepoint. Valerie Gatto, 24, revealed to Today.com that a man dressed in black attacked her mother when she was just 19, forcing himself upon her behind a building until a passing car spooked him, and she managed to run away. Rather than let the tragic story define her, Valerie has decided to use it as a platform to help educate women about sexual assault. 'I believe God put me here for a reason,' she said. 'To...

    NEW York City's dating scene is so brutal, even Miss USA has to look for love online. A man searching on the matchmaking app Tinder was shocked to discover a profile for 6-foot stunner Nana Meriwether, who won her crown in 2012, the New York Post reports. "It’s funny - the guys I’ve said yes to have all been like, 'Are you real?' " Meriwether told New York magazine. "I’m like, 'Yeah, of course.' Even pageant-title-holders get lonely." Meriwether said it’s a struggle to find love in the Big Apple, where busy singles have short attention spans. "Here’s the thing...

    One might have thought beauty pageants, throwbacks to a pre-1960s world, would be political correctness-free zones. This is not the case as Marissa Powell—aka Miss Utah—learned the hard way Sunday night when she flubbed a politically-charged question at the Miss USA pageant. The 21-year-old became an instant media sensation, ridiculed as a brainless beauty. The question was posed by Miss USA pageant judge and “Real Housewives” star NeNe Leakses. It could have been planted by the Obama administration. Note to mothers who aspire to turn their daughters into beauty pageant contestants: subscribe to Ms. magazine. It's boring and behind the...

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star/Miss USA judge NeNe Leakes asked Powell, who was named the most photogenic at the pageant, to answer the following question: "A recent report shows that in 40% of American families with children, women are the primary earners, yet they continue to earn less than men. What does this say about society?" This is a great question, and something you'd expect...

    A 20-year-old Boston University sophomore and a self-described 'cellist-nerd' brought the Miss Universe crown back to the U.S. for the first time in more than a decade when she won the televised contest on Wednesday. Olivia Culpo beat 88 other beauty queens to take the title from Leila Lopes of Angola during the two-hour competition at the Planet Hollywood casino on the Las Vegas Strip. In a refreshing change, the Miss Universe title, which makes Olivia unequivocally one of the world's most beautiful women, appears to have been bestowed on a girl with a healthy streak of normality.

    The search for beauty has turned mighty ugly in the aftermath of the Miss USA 2012 pageant. First, Miss Pennsylvania, Sheena Monnin, claimed the Sunday outcome was rigged and gave up her state crown in protest. Then, pageant officials said Monnin -- who failed to make the top 15 -- had really quit because she opposed competing against transgender contestants, who were allowed into the pageant for the first time this year. Enter Donald Trump, the co-owner of the Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageant, who denied Monnin's allegations and took a not-so-veiled stab at her appearance during an interview...

Sheena Monnin wrote on her Facebook page that she turned in her crown, because the pageant was "fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent, and in many ways trashy." Monnin later claimed another contestant had seen a list of the top 5 finishers, before the Miss USA show even started.

    Ever since 9/11, Americans have been forced to undergo humiliating searches at airports that have left many wondering whether the terrorists really did win in the end. We have all seen the videos of American children, little old ladies, and even nuns getting fondled, under the reasoning that we need to prevent terrorists from getting on our planes ever again. In the meantime, we have also seen videos and photos of people who actually fit the profile of the terrorists be given a free pass with minimum or no frisking as they are allowed board airplanes. These are the...

    BadEagle.com certainly has no particular expectation of Rima Fakih in the way of American values. She appears to be nothing more than a Muslim mascot. Certainly, her reference to Barry “Obama” Soetoro for validation of the U.S. Constitution shows us the depth of her understanding. (Unfortunately, many Americans these days have no deeper thoughts. They think America is based on religious freedom. Or, more inaccurately, they think religious freedom means Islam is in harmony with American values. Worse, they think Muslims are welcome here. They think Islam is a wonderful religion of peace, why, just like Christianity.

"I also agree that it shouldn't be so close to the World Trade Center. We should be more concerned with the tragedy than religion," she added.

Winning Germany's Top Model is widely considered a major step in a models career. Raised in Mattighofen in Upper Austria, Ailabouni began her training in a tourism school, though she had to drop out after she had problems paying for the program. To help her family earn money, she started working as a saleswoman. Now that Ailabouni has won the...

So “middle” that the reader does not really know what road she is on or where she is going. The journalist, Christopher Dickey, is writing about the new winner of the Miss America contest, Rima Fakih, who is an Arab-American Shiite Muslim with family roots in Lebanon. And they say that Americans are “Islamophobic?” Speaking out of all sides of his mouth, Dickey tells us that the French Cabinet has drafted an anti-burqa/anti-niqab law; that the new Miss...

    Rima Fakih's beauty pageant sash declares that she is Miss USA, but journalists want to find other labels for her. Questions about Fakih's ethnic and religious identity have been nearly as frequent as questions about photos of her dancing against a stripper's pole. "I'd like to say I'm American first, and I am an Arab-American," Fakih said. "I am Lebanese-American, and I am Muslim-American." Fakih, 24, was born in Lebanon, but her family moved to New York when she was 7 years old. She later moved to Michigan, where she went to college. The rarity of a woman born in...

Some pressing issues: Questions about Barack Obama’s Muslim sympathies are still unresolved, complicated by his pitiful bowing to American enemies and plans to build a mosque on ground zero, a site of grief and trauma for New Yorkers and fellow empathizers. So now with the crowning of a Muslim Miss America,...

    “A nation is never really beaten until it sells its women,” I wrote in a 2006 “Spengler” essay about Iranian prostitution. “The French sold their women to the German occupiers in 1940, and the Germans and Japanese sold their women to the Americans after World War II. The women of the former Soviet Union are still selling themselves in huge numbers. Hundreds of thousands of female Ukrainian "tourists" entered Germany after the then-foreign minister Joschka Fischer loosened visa standards in 1999.” It is a cultural marker of inestimable importance that the one Arab whose name every American knows is Rima...

    The new Miss USA is a pole-dancing Shi'ite Muslim who counts the Hezbollah terrorist group as part of her loyal fan base. Or, as the Los Angeles Times put it, Rima Fakih is "the poster girl for modern America." Miss Fakih, who as Miss Michigan took the Miss USA crown last weekend, was born in southern Lebanon and, as commentator Debbie Schlussel has reported, has extensive family connections to Hezbollah. But that reportage has been overshadowed by the more politically correct "first Arab-American Miss USA" storyline, dovetailing as it does with President Obama's efforts to promote Islam at home and...

    Many people on the left believe that they are tolerant because they are pro-choice, favor gay marriage and are generally socially liberal. But that is not tolerance.

For the second time in two years, agreeing with a majority of Americans is verboten at the Miss USA beauty pageant. In 2009, Carrie Prejean

After last year's tedious debacle with Carrie Prejean and the gay-marriage question, you'd think they would have learned to steer clear of hot-button social issues. In the final round of this year's contest, the beautiful blonde who came in second was asked what she thought of Arizona's new immigration law. This is a subject that has spurred heated and unpleasant discussions across the land, but Miss Oklahoma was up to the task. She began her answer by saying "I'm a huge believer...

She said she's against illegal immigration but is also against racial profiling. "I'm a huge believer in states' rights. I think that's what's so wonderful about America," Woolard said.

I told you about Fakih’s many relatives who are top Hezbollah terrorists and some who “martyred” themselves against Israel.But I also suspected that immigration/marriage fraud perpetrator, FBI award revokee, and “former” Islamic terrorist Imad Hamad (an open supporter of Hezbollah, HAMAS, etc.) also helped finance Fakih’s pageant candidacy. And I was right. Because I exposed Fakih for who she really is, her thuggish cadre of supporters and their Islamic friends at a major...
