10 Best ‘Lone Survivor’
Takedowns of Liberal Media

Newsbusters, by Matthew Philbin

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/14/2014 5:55:32 AM

CNN’s Jake Tapper would have done well to read “Lone Survivor,” rather than just seeing the new movie, before interviewing former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell last week. If he had, Tapper might have been more careful than to describe the deaths of Luttrell’s SEAL comrades in Afghanistan as “senseless.” And he would have been wary of Luttrell’s contempt for the liberal media. The film “Lone Survivor, which ” took in $38.5 million at the box office its opening weekend is based on a 2010 book by Luttrell that tells the tragic story of a 2005 operation in which the three

I totally agree with statements #9 and #10. The media can never brainwash real Americans. We know what America stands for and honor our military, (even if they have been infiltrated by liberals in their leadership for a short while).

20 dead American heroes to save 3 goat herders who were connected to the Taliban.

Their blood is on the hands of every liberal journalist and politician and it can never be washed away. Ever.

It is a very difficult movie to watch. I had tears streaming down my face throughout, knowing the hopelessness they faced and the ultimate ending. Yet they fought and sacrificed for each other until the bitter end.

Agree with #1. This is a Must Read and the movie is a Must See.

Everybody must Stop calling our destructive media "liberal". They aren´t liberal ! Take your pick ! They are either socialist driven, communist driven, or fascist driven, misguided, deceptive, ruinous to the American
Principle of truth. Liberal means free.
Have the guts to call them what they ARE !
They are ALL totalitarians, big government control totalitarians. Theft ain´t liberal.

What great quotes from the book. The "liberal" media was trying to secure a US defeat by al-Qaeda from the day after 9/11 - it was so obvious, but you weren´t allowed to say it out loud. They drooled and drooled over the prospect of taking down Bush just like they´d taken down Nixon, and the War On Terror was going to be their new, glorious Vietnam surrender. US defeat = victory for the Left. They´re still at it (though they have to be careful to secure defeat while making Lightworker look like a hero), and few things I´ve witnessed in my life have made me more sick.

One minor challenge: This entire business of modern war crimes, as identified by the liberal wings of politics and the media, actually began in Viet Nam.

Agree with 4 and call them Fashionable Marxists. They all posture as totally anti war and violence, but fain some support for our warriors. In truth, they hate the military but at the same time want to have the best fighters in the world, around and equipped to pull their sissy chestnuts out of the fire.

When you think about how the media big wigs live their opulent and luxurious lives, then you compare it to how men like Marcus Luttrell have lived theirs to protect these popinjay wimps, it turns your stomach. The media potentates don´t have the courage to tell the truth about anything because it is in direct conflict with what they believe. They are blinded to the truth by their communist ideology and know that the ministry of propaganda is always needed and they mean to cash in.

Whoever it is that defines the ROE´s for the military should be forced to resign without a dime from any pension they are due. They do not understand the concept of waging a war against your enemies. They put our men and women in jeopardy with stupid rules that do nothing but favor the enemy. Isn´t this the definition of a traitor, aiding and abetting the enemy?

the firefight with the taliban would have occurred either way. Kill the locals and when they don´t return to their villages rebels would have suspected something.

This is what happens in covert ops.

If the MSM were as openly critical of military operations, as they are today, they would have been shut down, thrown in jail, or both.

News was censored for the very reason that Luttrell mentions, it´s extremely demoralizing to our troops and totally envigorating to our enemy. But of course, the only true "enemy" of liberal commies are conservatives and the military.

I had the privilege of listening to an interview of Marcus by a host of a radio show here in Houston on the way home from work last week. Arriving home before the interview was finished, I sat in my car so I wouldn´t miss a word Marcus said. What a good, solid man he is. So breathtakingly refreshing in this day and age. One of the things that struck me the most is how he spoke about his wife and his love for her, and how he hated to travel because it took him away from his family. what also struck me is that he downplayed the chronic pain he now suffers. The term "hero" is affixed to many these days who do not deserve the title, but Marcus does. What a man!

Voter Fraud and A Corrupt Media will bring about the eventual downfall of America. For more years than I can count, my mind has been hard-wired to that dire prediction.

Why do you think they named our clear and present disaster “The Affordable Care Act” instead of what it really is: “The Lots o’ Luck Finding A Candy Striper, Much Less A Nurse Or Doctor, While You’re Bleeding To Death Act?”

I don’t trust Obama because of all the evidence he has exhibited to bring me to that conclusion. I don’t trust those who trust him because of their ignorance, gullibility and naiveté.

The Jake Tapper ass-whipping video was taken down by YouTube when I went to view it last night via a Heritage Foundation link I was emailed. There was a message from the bedwetters at YouTube about the video clip being somehow inappropriate, thereby violating some misapplied policy about honesty. Meanwhile, I´m sure we´ll find all kinds of obamacrap on YouTube.

That being said, I agree with #8 about canceling subscriptions. Conservatives / independents can wage economic war with far greater effect than Jesse Jackson´s Shakedown Coalition ever could. Start with your local paper. When advertisers see reductions in circulation, they´ll demand rebates, lower rates, or advertise elsewhere.

##8, 16. Cancelling the subscription doesn´t work. They are getting subsidies from the money pit that is controlled by the lefties. How can you explain the earnings of the Googles and Facebooks of the world? They work for the leftist gov´t and they are paid by the leftist gov´t. Same in Russia, China, Cuba (and previously, fascist Germany).
And #2 - media IS brainwashing America. Lo-info mob had elected leftists here and continues electing leftists in European "democracies".

I had four combat tours in Vietnam, the first in 1964, the last in 1972. We never lost a single battle. We and our South Vietnamese allies could have won the war at any time with the right strategy. The politicians in Washington threw away 58,000 American lives and a million and a half Vietnamese lives. Robert McNamara, the Kennedy/Johnson Secretary of Defense later said that he didn´t believe we could win the war with his strategy. Does that sound familiar. These incompetent cowards should be horse-whipped.

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

AUGUSTA, Ga.— Bubba Watson has won the Masters for the second time in three years. Watson claimed another green jacket by shooting a 3-under 69 in the final round Sunday, fending off Jordan Spieth’s bid to become the youngest major champion since 1931. The 20-year-old Texan led by two shots heading to the eighth hole, but the tournament changed suddenly. Watson made two straight birdies, Spieth took back-to-back bogeys — and just like that, Watson was up by two strokes at the turn. The left-hander led the rest of the way, adding to the 2012 title he won in more

The military is taking steps to prepare women for combat roles in 2016. The Marine Corps announced that it would give young female lieutenants who wash out of the grueling Infantry Officer Course a second shot, same as their male counterparts. The Army is conducting a study to test just how fit a soldier has to be to engage in combat. The study involves 60 women and 100 men. CBS News reported on both developments last week. The Marine Corps announcement came after Marine 2nd Lt. Sage Santangelo took the Infantry Officer Court and wrote about her experience last month

Saturday was an excellent opportunity for apparel manufacturer Under Armour to take center stage, with logos positioned all over Spieth’s sprawling body. The brand’s opportunity to be featured on air will only be enhanced in the Final Round with Spieth attempting to become the youngest player to win The Masters, besting a 21-year-old Tiger Woods who first won the tournament in 1997. Speaking of Tiger, he is noticeably absent from this year’s Masters Tournament. Rory McIlroy

But well before the Internet´s relentless rationing of spontaneous fame, the 1962 photo of President Kennedy at Santa Monica´s beach made quite a splash. For a Los Angeles woman named Eva Ban, its effect lasted a lifetime. Ban was the woman in the two-piece swimsuit, which was called a bikini in news accounts but was modest by today´s standards.

According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public
