USA Today, by Mike Garafolo

A little more than a month after the tragic mass shooting of 26 students and faculty at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., a group of 26 students from the school will perform America the Beautiful during the Super Bowl XLVII pregame show, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed to USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday. The league is flying the students and their families down to New Orleans later this week in advance of the performance, which will be broadcast live on CBS shortly before Alicia Keys performs the National Anthem.

Now politics enters a game where people just want to enjoy the game.These poor shooting victims wil lbe exploited by the left for years to come.
I´ve already read 3 other shooting stories this morning. What all this publicity is doing is leading to more copycat killings.

We live in a 15 minutes of fame world,where psycho people don´t care how they get it.The social meltdown continues every day.

We´re trying to pass guns laws without the word crime even being mentioned.

Has anyone enjoyed the death of even one child as much as the Left has enjoyed the deaths of the 20 in Newtown? It´s a regular bonanza for them and their idea of disarming the population.

The nfl cannot be criticized for a gesture of support. But this event gives a cbs commentator (s) a chance to spout off with a gun control lecture like bob costas. Can cbs withstand the pressure? Can they keep a lid on their state run obama propaganda machine outlet?

Just to add, this proves that liberals are COMPLELTY TONEDEAF to any nuances of the human condition. And Bill Clinton´s "I feel your pain" is one of the biggest lies of the post World War Two era.

I play to watch one of my recorded gun shows during the half time of the now "super bowl". I´m not surprised, the Democrats would play a video of the killings if there was one and they would loop it over and over again. That is how twisted and sick I think they are. But any party that boos God at their convention and celebrates the killing of 50 million babies since 1973 has no shame or morals period.

Wait, what? The victims of Sandy Hook are available for display and exploitation but the victims (survivors)of benghazi are nowhere to be found?
I read somewhere that some gay marriage propaganda will be inserted into the game also.
Just what we all want, an evening of scolding/lecturing from a corrupt administration. Wings anyone?

Early reports say they will be singing a medley to include Clapton´s "I Shot the Sheriff," AC/DC´s "Shoot to Thrill," The Beatles´ "Happiness Is a Warm Gun," and concluding with the Boomtown Rats´ classic ode to school shootings "I Don´t Like Mondays." Hey, if you´re going to exploit these kids, then you might as well go for broke!

Bob Coasts commented that Newtown took him off the hook with regard to his anti gun rant during half time a couple of months ago.

IOW, let no crisis go to waste.

As a parent my heart aches for the Newtown parents. They are well meaning but some are wrong on the gun control issue.

One more reason to skip the Super Bowl this year. I dislike both teams, don´t want to hear about that "brave" pro-gay marriage player, can´t stomach the sight of Ray Lewis and now this. I think it will be movie night at our home.

On the evening of Good Friday, a man on the run from a death sentence wakes up in a dark forest, lost, terrified and besieged by wild animals. He spends an infernal Easter week hiking through a dismal cave, climbing up a grueling mountain, and taking what you might call the long way home. It all works out for him, though. The traveler returns from his ordeal a better man, determined to help others learn from his experience. He writes a book about his to-hell-and-back trek, and it´s an instant best-seller, making him beloved and famous.

It is said to be China´s biggest church and on Easter Sunday thousands of worshippers will flock to this Asian mega-temple to pledge their allegiance – not to the Communist Party, but to the Cross. The 5,000-capacity Liushi church, which boasts more than twice as many seats as Westminster Abbey and a 206ft crucifix that can be seen for miles around, opened last year with one theologian declaring it a "miracle that such a small town was able to build such a grand church". The £8 million building is also one of the most visible symbols of Communist China´s breakneck conversion as

Good news for lawmakers who oppose the Keystone XL oil pipeline: San Francisco billionaire Tom Steyer has got your back. Steyer, the hedge-fund-trader-turned-anti-Keystone-activist, pledged Thursday to leverage his largely self-funded super PAC to support members of Congress who come under attack for their opposition to the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline. Some Democrats on the Hill have faced Keystone-related attacks not just from Republicans but also from Democratic-friendly labor activists who support the project.

National Review Online took another gratuitous shot at me Thursday in an article defending Ayaan Hirsi Ali, saying: “Hirsi Ali is no Pamela Geller. On the contrary, for her whole life, Hirsi Ali has used anger as a catalyst to great good.” Is it necessary to smear me in order to defend Hirsi Ali? And this is not the first time that NRO has allowed insults and defamation against me and other freedom fighters to run unedited. I hardly know why. But I do know that NRO has no guts, no spine, and no conviction.

A Family Affair:Will Jeb Run?

Want to know whether Jeb Bush will run for president? Don’t listen to the learned pundits pouring over Electoral College maps and crunching poll numbers, weighing the former Florida governor’s chances against the rest of the putative 2016 Republican field. Put aside for a moment, the very real questions about his immigration stance and whether he’s too much of an Establishment guy in a Tea Party world. Electability matters, of course, but if you want to get Jeb, it’s the last name that counts, and the family history you should consult for clues as to whether he will seek to join

he 2014 election season dawns, with 2016 closing close behind that. Make book that before both are over, the most quoted or cited person in Republican campaigns — and not infrequently in Democrat campaigns as well — will be Ronald Reagan. There is a reason for this, as Reagan biographer — and American Spectator contributor — Paul Kengor notes in his newest Reagan book 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative. In addition to being a prolific Reagan scholar, Kengor is a professor of political science at Grove City College and the executive director of the college’s Center for Vision & Values. Why is

With jobs and the economy a given, Republicans are working to turn the 2014 elections into an argument over the Affordable Care Act. And that message could be helped by a high-profile Senate race in Kansas against the very woman who oversaw the law´s disastrous rollout. Some Democrats are asking outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to challenge her home state senator, Republican Pat Roberts, in the fall, the The New York Times reported Wednesday. Nominating Sebelius, a potentially serious contender in the state, would force national Republicans to spend money in Kansas, pulling away funds that could help them

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
