National Geographic denies political
bias influenced decision to release
pro-Obama film before election

Daily Caller, by Greg Re

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/6/2012 5:42:49 AM

National Geographic Channel President Howard Owens denied Thursday that the network’s decision to air a pro-Obama video just two days before the November election was motivated in any way by political considerations. “Harvey obviously doesn’t schedule our network,” Owens said, referring to The Weinstein Co. Co-chairman Harvey Weinstein, whose company is producing “Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama bin Laden,” a thriller based on President Barack Obama’s decision to kill al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden. “[We're] not political. We are opportunistic, from a programming perspective.” Instead, Owens said National Geographic wanted to release

This could have worldwide impact, just like "The Innocense of Muslims" with riots and embassy bombings breaking out and reminding us...again..that Obama's foreign policy is a shambles.

No, I don't this will help Obama in the least.

The real shame is that all of those early-voting Dems have no chance to recall their vote.

After National Geographic jumped into the tank for global warming, it's descent into political gamesmanship accelerated rapidly. That's why I terminated my 30+ year subscription.

The liberal flying monkeys rail at the Daily Caller, further publicized by FNC, for releasing the full video of the Choomganster-in-Chief's 2007 race baiting rant, calling it "unfair" and "politically motivated" on the eve of the first debate. Meanwhile, NG releasing the details of the Osama raid is ho-hum news, nothing to see here. I agree with other Ldotters: the MuzzBro maddogs are just waiting for this to use as another excuse for an outbreak of beheadings, raids and general violence. Oh, well....

That movie may come out just in time for the election; however, how many people will go see it in time?

Meanwhile, I'm sure the GOP in the House and Senate will have more and more news about Libya and our dead Ambassador.

The pictures are starting to come out and every self respecting Dem should be horrified.

So if a poorly produced "movie" clip on youtube sets the muslim world on fire. What do they think a slick hollywood movie about killing ubl will do? I believe in the first amendment and anyone can produce any movie they want and I can choose not to watch it. But I will not attack anyone or destroy property because I disagree with you. Do I believe NatGeo in a word no. Will some nut job in the middle east use this as an excuse for bad behavior probably.

Actually, it's a bit sad to me. In the past ten years I've noticed the rather harsh left attitude of four magazines I used to read. Nat'l Geo, Sci Amer, Science, and The Smithsonian. Maybe it was always there, but I think they've come out of the woodwork lately. Now I'm down to Mental Floss. Yeah, it's left, too, but only because they think they're intellectual. To me, they're fun!

Traditionally NG has shown us the many wonders of the earth that occur naturally and I guess it was to be expected they would go down the global warming road. But what does a military mission to kill a terrorist have to do with any of the that?

This should be considered a "donation in kind" to the Obama campaign, and as such should be investigated by the FEC.
Perhaps one of the Legal Foundations will seek a Court Order to stop the release before the election?

Obama has already been mocked by the rank and file in Egypt and Kuwait for bragging about killing Osama. Things like Obama, we're all Osamas, and Obama there are billions of Osamas, were chanted around the time of our ambassador's murder. If anything, Obama bragging about killing bin Laden made things much worse. As will showing this movie.

I have often thought National Geographic had no right to make its fortune selling us pictures of our Earth... of course with their own spin on what the pictures might mean.
GW was the final straw, though... outright lying to us... toadying to the UN, global government, Agenda 21.

Everyone knows that Harvey Weinstain and Obie are (for now, anyway) best buds. Weinstein had a big fundraiser for Obie in his Connecticut home. (I'll bet the disingenuous Howard Owens was even there.)

Weinstein is opportunistic. Owens knows him well enough to refer to him as "Harvey". They are probably best buds, too.

So we have Obama->Weinstein->Howard. Opportunists, all.

Using the Government's own blathering, this film will cause massive Mid-East protests. No
patriotic organization would ever run it. Are they going to be held accountable for the potential violence ? and this is a real film, not some concocted reel on u-tube that the Muslims supposedly realized existed two months after it was posted. This anti-Muslim film is being advertised. Hopefully, the violence will start BEFORE the release date, based on pirated copies or just advertisements, and it will DOOM Obama's re-election chances. That is the only good thing that can come of it. There are some really sick people in this Country.

Aren`t they afraid of raising the ire of the muslim world by releasing this film? After all, we were told a 13 minute video on YouTube was responsible for the death of Ambassador Steven in Benghazi. Seems to me releasing a 90 minute film might be worth 7 or 8 Ambassador deaths in the Middle East....

‘Holy Grail’ of muscle
cars found in old barn

“Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings has found what he calls the car industry’s “Holy Grail” — the first two Pontiac Firebirds ever built. Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

What Happened to the Tea Party?
The Federalist, by Robert Tracinski    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/17/2014 4:50:07 AM     Post Reply
It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

Let´s get one thing clear: If someone could wave a wand and make Jeb Bush president it would be a very good thing for the world and this country. As his mother said, he is the best-prepared person. But as his mother also said, he shouldn’t be running. And the reasons are becoming more clear by the day. Problem one is that much like Mitt Romney, he is one political generation too old. Both last held office in 2006, and seem to have stayed there. Problem two is the anguished ambivalence, reminiscent of Mario Cuomo and Adlai E. Stevenson, which does not bode

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots. Two layers of zippers keep the outside from getting in, and more importantly here -- the opposite. Nobody goes inside the tent without spending 15 minutes putting on isolation gear. The nurse handing over my garb calls it my "space suit." I can´t help but think that going into an Ebola

Tallahassee, Fla. — Early on the morning of Dec. 7, 2012, a freshman at Florida State University reported that she had been raped by a stranger somewhere off campus after a night of drinking at a popular Tallahassee bar called Potbelly’s. As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear. For nearly a year, the events of that evening remained a well-kept secret until the woman’s allegations burst into the open, roiling the university and threatening a prized asset: Jameis Winston, one of the marquee names of

About 164 people have been pulled from the wreckage, and the race to find survivors is well underway. No one ever expects a disaster, but this one has especially stunned people. Passengers say they heard a loud thud, which suggests the vessel collided with something, but it´s too early to tell.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
