    A Missouri school district’s superintendent has apologized to the community after students turned their backs on a rival school’s basketball team in what some are calling a racially motivated display. According to KSHB-TV, during a basketball game between Warrensburg High School and Center High School, Warrensburg students turned their backs on Center’s team as the school’s starting roster was announced. One of the students held up a campaign sign for President-elect Donald Trump. The Kansas City Star described Center’s basketball team as “predominantly black.” “Where it went over the line is when they held up the [Trump] sign,” Warrensburg R6...

  • 'Turn' on AMC Tells Story of America's First Spy Ring (it's got legs)

    04/07/2014 4:19:02 PM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 58 replies ^ | 4/7/2014 | Nick Sanchez
    AMC's new television series "Turn" debuted Sunday night, telling the tale of America's first spy ring that helped Gen. George Washington win the Revolutionary War. The series follows Abe Woodhull, played by Jamie Bell of "Billy Elliot" fame, a Long Island cabbage farmer with a wife, infant, and father who's sympathetic toward the Brits. He's recruited into the Culper Ring, tasked with gathering recon on the redcoats. The story is based on a real-life story chronicled in the book "Washington's Spies" by Alexander Rose. In the debut episode, Woodhull initially resists becoming involved in the uprisings, focusing instead on his...

    The Hollywood Reporter ^ | 4/6/2014 | Tim Goodman
    AMC's latest drama tries to set up a grand story of America's first spy ring but forgets to be exciting in the process. Having series so great or so popular that nobody seems to notice how much you flounder when they're not on is a luxury (or is it a mystery?) that AMC must be praying doesn’t go away anytime soon. Its latest series, the Revolutionary War spy drama Turn, may eventually turn into something worth talking about, but the 90-minute premiere seems so intent on setting up Something Really Big For Later that it forgets to be compelling in...

    The new AMC series Turn, which premieres April 6, is bewildering at first. We’re dropped smack in the middle of British-occupied New York. The year is 1776, and Abraham Woodhull (Jamie Bell) is scraping by as a cabbage farmer and sometime innkeeper in Setauket, Long Island. He’s husband to Mary (Meegan Warner), and father to a young child. His father, Richard (Kevin McNally), is a local magistrate loyal to George III. Then the scene shifts. We’re now in New Jersey. A stunning overhead shot reveals a sprawling field of bluecoat rebel bodies lying next to a pool dyed red with...

Chevron has hauled them into court in New York, accusing them of fraud and extortion.

Mitt Romney among likely Iowa Caucus goers has turned the presidential race on its ear. (Snip) She is going to be scrutinized now like she has never been because, let’s face it, the current polls show that in the current presidential race, she could go far. Which means her surge is likely going to come to a quick and perhaps even spectacular end.

    Today when Barack Obama told Israel to move back to the 1967 borders he effectively gave half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, The holiest Christian Church in the world, The Church of the Holy Sepulchre to the Hamas-Fatah terror alliance. This is what Barack Obama wants to give to Hamas.

    With each day, 60,000 gallons gush into the Gulf, Obama's equivalent of the body count in Iraq that caused the left to loathe George W. Bush. Rhetoric or programs or visits to the Gulf or posturing won't assuage the negatives. Only plugging the hole in the bottom of the ocean can do it. The right and center of American politics turned off Obama over healthcare. And now the left is leaving him over the oil spill. Why can't Obama plug the hole? Because he has no administrative experience. I often saw Bill Clinton, as governor and as president, call in...

    Reformation Theology ^ | February 6, 2007 | J.W. Hendryx
    One of the most prevalent motifs that runs through the whole Bible is its constant reminder of the insufficiency of man. While this may seem all too obvious, we need constant reminding of this critical truth in our everyday lives. This goes for the non-Christian, because he has no hope apart from Christ's mercy, and for the Christian who has no hope, save in Christ and Christ alone. This is not only clear in those parts of the Scripture which are propositional but also are quite pervasive in the gospel narratives. If you look closely at many of the stories...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The scene repeats itself daily on city streets: a driver gets stuck bumper to bumper, blocking an intersection and preventing another car from turning left. But authorities say that was enough to cause Edwin Ramos to unload an AK-47 assault weapon on a man and his two sons, killing them. The deaths immediately drew public outrage, which intensified when authorities revealed that Ramos, 21, is an illegal immigrant who managed to avoid deportation despite previous brushes with the law.

    You cannot have it both ways! Every year in America, this “both ways” mentality gets worse and worse. Somewhere along the line Americans started thinking that we could have all of our rights and freedoms and have expedient justice and results at the same time. Well, I have to tell you: YOU CANNOT. There is a blend of the two that must be championed if we are going to continue being a successful country. The mortgage crisis of late is one of the great disasters caused by this “have it both ways” mentality. The government was constantly pressured by citizens...
