National Geographic's cable television channel is defending its decision to air a new live-action movie entitled "Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden," which focuses on the May 2011 operation that led to the death of the world's most wanted terrorist right before the November election. And if you miss the first showing, you'll be able to catch it on Netflix starting on Monday, still with plenty of time to vote the following day. "This is a story people have been waiting to witness for themselves, and we feel the combined force of
Comments: Nothing is a coincidence with the regime and their surrogates.
FTA:"The president and his fellow Democrats are coming for your tax money. Redistribution is the goal, and suburban Ohio is target No. 1. More broadly, Obama’s regionalist agenda is an attack on the values and way of life of suburban America. How odd it would be were Ohio’s suburban taxpayers to hand Obama the key to their own undoing. Forewarned is forearmed. Suburban Ohioans, it’s up to you." It's up to you Ohio, get this message out to everyone on your email list. You can be sure the MSM won't.
#1, did you mean this comment to go after the next article on Ohio?
In response to this article...no surprise here. NG is leftist, always has been. Not so worried about upsetting the ME Islamists as they should be, according to how upset they got over a 10 minute video nobody ever saw before it was outed by the administration.
So, folks, I guess we should look for uprising on our own soil this time.

The heir of one of the founders of National Geographic and his wife were arrested in Annapolis several years ago for passing secrets to Russians. They were part of the community complete with a yacht. Coincidence it is NG airing this Obama propaganda? Weinstein productions?
I almost regret cancelling my NG subscription over their preoccupation with presenting AGW theory as fact. Now I've got no leverage at all with which to condemn their decision to be propagandists for Bammy.

Will National Geographic make the point in this infomercial that the members of the heroic SEAL team 6 were all killed when their helicopter was destroyed in Afghanistan. It seems to me to be a strange coincidence. The 0blamer regime rushes to take credit for the raid and releases classified information detailing who was on the raid, and then they are all killed by the al Queda. I think we need to know the rest of the story as Mr Harvey used to say.
ANNAPOLIS, Md.— Days after a Republican was elected mayor of Annapolis, City Council members say they will revisit legislation that would strip the mayor’s office of much of its power. Democratic Alderman Ross Arnett of Ward 8 tells The Capital he will introduce a charter amendment to move Annapolis to a council-manager style of government. The city manager would report directly to the City Council, not the mayor. Under Arnett’s legislation, the mayor’s post would be largely ceremonial. The mayor would retain a single vote on the council. Arnett says the change would stabilize the city’s management. If the measure is approved,
Government policies effectively redistributed more than $2 trillion in income from the top 40 percent of American society to the bottom 60 percent in 2012, according to a new study from the nonpartisan Tax Foundation. The study tracked the beneficiaries of government spending programs largely paid for by taxpayers who are not very big beneficiaries of those programs. Families in the top 1 percent shouldered nearly half of the more than $2 trillion that was redistributed last year. The study found that the country’s lowest-income families receive $5.28 in government spending for every $1 they pay in taxes. Highest-income families only receive
Want to know why the Tea Party so eager to grievously wound the Republican Party? The answer is as simple as it is counterintuitive: its leaders view themselves as modern prophets of the apocalypse. In the aftermath of the great government shutdown of 2013, the Tea Party continues to cause heartburn for establishment Republicans. Consider the results of last week’s elections, which offer clues to the internecine GOP battles that lie ahead. Although it’s much too early to draw hard conclusions, Chris Christie proved that a moderate, common-sense Republican could win in deep blue New Jersey, while in purple Virginia
Two Baptist chaplains said they were forced out of a Veterans Affairs chaplain training program after they refused orders to stop quoting the Bible and to stop praying in the name of Jesus. When the men objected to those demands they were subjected to ridicule and harassment that led to one of the chaplains leaving the program and the other being ejected, according to a federal lawsuit filed Friday. The Conservative Baptist Association of America is suing Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki – alleging two of their chaplains were openly ridiculed
Sen. Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, is getting a fourth primary challenger in the race for his U.S. Senate seat next year. Bill Connor, a lawyer and U.S. Army veteran who lost a 2010 Republican runoff for lieutenant governor, has filed to run against Mr. Graham in next June’s GOP primary, The State newspaper reported. State Sen. Lee Bright, businessman Richard Cash and Nancy Mace, the first female graduate of The Citadel, also are running against the incumbent Mr. Graham. The State recently reported that former President George W. Bush had contributed $5,000 to Mr. Graham’s re-election campaign. Mr. Graham,
On ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, foreign correspondent Terry Moran made clear that he was in love with the potential deal between the west and Iran that would loosen sanctions in exchange for Iran doing virtually nothing. “What a whirlwind of talks it’s been!” gushed Moran. “Just a few hours ago there was this huge anticipation, even a giddiness in some diplomatic circles that this historic, first step confidence building deal was about to be done.” But then Moran found the culprit for the talks falling through: the French. “And what happened as you point out? Well, the French happened.
President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a Veterans Day breakfast on Monday morning at the White House, ahead of his scheduled trip to Arlington National Cemetery for a wreath-laying ceremony. The closed-press breakfast with veterans and their families is held annually by the Obamas. Vice President Biden will also attend. In the president´s weekly address, he said that the Veteran´s Day Holiday was an opportunity to say "thank you" to those who had served. "Thank you to that greatest generation who fought island by island across the Pacific, and freed millions from fascism in Europe," Obama said. "Thank you to
NEW YORK — Chicken from China has officials on alert, including U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported Sunday, Schumer said first, the U.S. Department of Agriculture only allowed chickens that had been processed in China to be sold in the U.S. Now, he said the USDA plans to green-light poultry raised and slaughtered in China. This has never happened before, and it is a bad idea, Schumer argued. “China has a terrible record on health safety, and chickens are one of the things that need the most care and inspections,” he said. Schumer called the
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) said he has no plans to run again for the White House. Speaking to the Arizona Republic, McCain said he had received "a spate of e-mails and letters and phone calls" urging him to run since the government shutdown. But he said he´s focused on whether to run for a sixth term in the Senate, not for president. “As you know, I’m seriously thinking about running for re-election to the Senate," he said. "But I think, in the words of the late Morris K. Udall, as far as my presidential ambitions are concerned, ‘The people have spoken —
Is it just me, or does anyone else out there wonder why the mainstream media is gushing over Gov. Chris Christie? The Washington Post got all wee-weed up over his decisive win in New Jersey last week. The New York Times planted a big kiss on his chubby tookus. The networks in Manhattan all ran a variation of “Boy, this guy is really something, huh?” Now, the portly presidential contender’s win was, to be sure, pretty amazing — especially in a deep blue state where President Obama beat Mitt Romney by 18 points just a year ago. The numbers speak for
Democratic strategist James Carville had a rather novel suggestion Monday for President Obama and his sagging poll numbers. “I think the best thing he can do is take a toke on the mayor of Toronto’s crack pipe,” Mr. Carville joked on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” pointing to embattled Mayor Rob Ford’s slightly better approval ratings. A new Pew Research poll shows that Mr. Obama’s overall job approval rating is at 41 percent — 14 points down from last December — with 53 percent disapproving. A recent Forum Research poll, meanwhile, showed the Toronto mayor’s approval numbers relatively resilient in the face of his recent
The American Civil Liberties Union has been shut out of weighing in on accused Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s claims of hardship behind bars at a hearing tomorrow to address whether the alleged terrorist deserves to be cut some slack while he awaits trial. U.S. District Court Judge George A. O’Toole Jr. also ordered a memorandum the ACLU Foundation of Massachusetts submitted in support of its position stricken from the public record, explaining in his decision, “While there may be no positive rule forbidding it, in my judgment a trial court presiding over a criminal prosecution should not receive or
WASHINGTON — President Obama was seething. Two weeks after the disastrous launch of HealthCare.gov, Mr. Obama gathered his senior staff members in the Oval Office for what one aide recalled as an “unsparing” dressing-down. The public accepts that technology sometimes fails, the president said, but he had personally trumpeted that HealthCare.gov would be ready on Oct. 1, and it wasn’t. “If I had known,” Mr. Obama said, according to the aide, “we could have delayed the website.” Mr. Obama’s anger, described by a White House that has repeatedly sought to show that the president was
President Obama likes to say he will never again be running for office, but every Democrat knows he will be on the ballot figuratively in 2014, and 2016, as well. Right now they are rightly nervous about that prospect. A month ago, political Washington was transfixed by the errors committed by congressional Republicans. Those missteps led to a partial shutdown of the government, which in turn has brought approval of the GOP to record lows in many public opinion surveys. Nothing about that has changed. But today, it’s Obama in the spotlight. A president famous for his unflappability, he is
McAllen, Tex. — They were already running late for a doctor’s appointment, but first the Salas family hurried into their kitchen for another breakfast paid for by the federal government. The 4-year-old grabbed a bag of cheddar-flavored potato chips and a granola bar. The 9-year-old filled a bowl with sugary cereal and then gulped down chocolate milk. Their mother, Blanca, arrived at the refrigerator and reached into the drawer where she stored the insulin needed to treat her diabetes. She filled a needle with fluid and injected it into her stomach with a practiced jab. “Let’s go,” she told the children,
Marathon talks on a deal to temporarily curb Iran´s nuclear program have broken down after a negotiations between foreign ministers ran into trouble late last night.[Snip] U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and foreign ministers of six other delegations conferred with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a late-night session which broke up after midnight. The French foreign minister, Laurent Fabius, told France Inter radio yesterday that Paris would not accept a ´sucker´s deal´. They complained the text which was drafted as part of the agreement had been presented a ´fait accompli´ and did not want to be forced
Jim Capretta saw the Obamacare debacle coming when it was months away. On July 5, the Obama administration released a 600 page regulation announcing a one-year delay in part of Obamacare’s implementation. States would not have to check the income of people applying for subsidies, according to the administration’s guidance. The administration simply would not be ready in time. “This announcement is another indicator—as if we needed one—of the complete fiasco that is Obamacare implementation,” Capretta wrote the following Monday for the Weekly Standard. It wasn’t the first delay, as a few days earlier the administration had let all big businesses off the
Don’t count Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus among those who believe comprehensive immigration reform is dead this Congress. Despite exasperation among reform advocates that the House has refused to vote on any major immigration bill — particularly the Senate-passed legislation — Priebus said that his “gut” feeling is that the House will indeed pass an immigration overhaul in the next 14 months. “Something significant is going to happen because obviously mass deportation is not an option. I don’t think doing nothing is an option. And I believe most people would agree that something significant needs to take place. Now what that
In their new book ”Who’s Bigger: Where Historical Figures Really Rank,” computer scientist Steven Skiena and former Google engineer Charles B. Ward rank the 100 most significant people in world history using an algorithm they created. What goes into the algorithm? It’s complicated. If you really want to know the math behind it, read the book. Or you can learn a little about it here. But click below to see who makes the top 100 — then let us know who the list should and should not have been included in the comment section.
Sheilah Johnson was a building inspector for the city for 28 years, a college graduate who passed up jobs that paid more because a city job offered stability and the promise of a good pension. But the city´s recent plunge into bankruptcy — overseen by an outside emergency manager answerable to the state government, not the citizens of Detroit — makes her wonder whether she and other African American residents of the impoverished city will be able to stop Wall Street creditors from seizing what´s left of a municipal treasury they paid into for most of their lives. "When my
ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Before Ted Cruz burst on the national political scene, there was Sarah Palin. After Ted Cruz, is there still much of a place for her? Sarah Palin, 49, is the original hero of the Tea Party, rallier of the right wing and basher of Barack Obama. But it has been five years since she gained a place in the history books as John McCain´s surprise choice of running mate on the Republican presidential ticket. Four years since she unexpectedly resigned as Alaska governor before her term was up. Two years since she bypassed the chance to jump into the
Jeff Fager, the CBS News chairman and executive producer of “60 Minutes,” has said that his team spent “more than a year” reporting the story about the attack on Benghazi that aired on Oct. 27.Yet it wasn’t until Thursday night that they learned first-hand what their principal source, a security contractor named Dylan Davies, had told the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the attack. In conversations with POLITICO, sources familiar with “60 Minutes” reporting said that it was only on Thursday night that “60 Minutes” obtained the official account of events that Davies had given to FBI officials after the
“If I don’t have sex every day, I get a headache,” John F. Kennedy would remark to anyone who would listen, from British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan to a lowly senatorial aide. Even in the pantheon of sexual narcissists drawn to politics, Kennedy’s obsessive conquesting remains the gold standard for bad behavior. Here, a gallery of some (but almost certainly not all) of his most notable trysts. Marlene Dietrich, ActressThe German actress, a longtime friend and lover of JFK’s father, Joe, accepted an invitation from the president to have drinks at the White House in September of 1963 — when
WASHINGTON — When President Obama travels abroad, his staff packs briefing books, gifts for foreign leaders and something more closely associated with camping than diplomacy: a tent. Even when Mr. Obama travels to allied nations, aides quickly set up the security tent — which has opaque sides and noise-making devices inside — in a room near his hotel suite. When the president needs to read a classified document or have a sensitive conversation, he ducks into the tent to shield himself from secret video cameras and listening devices. American security officials demand that their bosses — not just the president, but
