    Killers in color: Fascinating images bring to life the team who plotted the theater assassination of Lincoln to revive the Confederate cause. The 16th President of the United States was shot dead at the theater by well-known stage actor John Wilkes Booth on April 14, 1865. Each conspirator was assigned a different role in the comprehensive assassination attempt of several high-profile government members. Edmund Spangler helped Booth escape but he was spared death because he didn't know about the assassination in advance. Booth was shot by Union forces after a dramatic 12-day manhunt led by David Herold. Powell had been...

    Just when the Trump brand was teetering on the edge of no longer being the gold standard, along came TV producer, Mark Burnett. Burnett was the creator and chief architect of Survivor, the biggest of the TV reality shows that attracted viewers by the millions to watch beautiful people compete in exotic spots such as the Australian outback and the Polynesian islands. But Burnett's fabulous success couldn't mask one bit of unhappiness at the center of his life: he had little kids at home in New York and he was hardly ever there. "There has to be a way...
  • Alan Grayson claims AR-15s can fire ‘700 rounds in a minute’ after Orlando attack

    Washington Times ^ | June 13, 2016 | Douglas Ernst
    Florida Rep. Alan Grayson used the aftermath of Sunday’s Islamic terror attack to claim AR-15 semi-automatic rifles can fire 700 rounds per minute. Security guard Omar Mateen killed 49 people and wounded over 50 others during an attack on a gay nightclub — the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. Mr. Grayson, a Democrat, was asked about the massacre and soon turned his attention to the AR-15 rifle. ... “If [Mr. Mateen] was not able to buy a weapon that shoots off 700 rounds in a minute, a lot of those people would still be alive,” the congressman said. “If...

  • Everything in the Israeli-Hamas Conflict is *ss Backwards! (Rush)

    RUSH: All right. The Israelis have rejected the ceasefire proposal made by the haughty John Kerry, who served in Vietnam. The Israelis reject ceasefire deal. The only thing a ceasefire does is allow Hamas to regroup. I think Hamas is on the ropes and that's why everybody wants a ceasefire. I'm telling you, everything over there is ass backwards. Everything in this conflict is 180 degrees out of phase. They want the ceasefire to give Hamas time to regroup. "Well, we have to make it fair, Mr. Limbaugh, because the Israelis have such an unfair advantage. They're richer and they're...
  • Mark Burnett's 'The Bible' Sequel Gets Greenlight at NBC, Not History

    Yahoo via The Wrap ^ | 07/01/13 | Tim Kenneally
    There will be a sequel to Mark Burnett's successful miniseries "The Bible," but it won't be on the History Channel. Instead, it's moving from the minors to the majors: Burnett and NBC are forging a holy alliance to bring the sequel to the peacock. [Related: 10 Reasons Why 'The Bible' Is the No. 1 Cable Show of the Year] The sequel, which bears the working title "A.D.: Beyond the Bible," follows the enormously popular 10-part miniseries "The Bible," which drew a huge audience to History earlier this year and is a likely Emmy contender. It should be noted that Burnett...

    Breibart - Big Journalism ^ | 4-20-2013 | Tony Lee
    On Thursday, just hours after the FBI released blurry pictures of the two suspected Boston Marathon bombers, CNN anchor Erin Burnett assumed the suspects were "stereotypically" white Americans and not linked to any foreign terror group. It turned out that the suspects--Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev--are technically "white" as they are ethnically Chechen (although Dzhokhar recently became a citizen). But what Burnett, like many in the mainstream media who instinctively assume such acts are committed by those who look like Timothy McVeigh, was implying was that the suspects in the photos were white Americans who were born in this country. "They...

    History and The Bible executive producers, husband and wife Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, just addressed the Obama-Satan controversy. “History channel has the highest respect for President Obama,” the network said in a statement. “The series was produced with an international and diverse cast of respected actors. It’s unfortunate that anyone made this false connection. History’s The Bible is meant to enlighten people on its rich stories and deep history.”

    There's a swirl that the devil character in "The Bible" TV show is a thinly veiled President Obama ... and Mark Burnett tells TMZ, it's all the devil's doing ...THE REAL DEVIL. Burnett -- a deeply religious man -- tells TMZ ... he believes there is a devil on earth. Burnett says the devil has stirred the pot and created a false likeness between Obama and the TV devil. Why, you ask, would the real devil care about a TV show? Fact is ... the show is HUGELY popular and is having a big impact on viewers. Burnett notes the...

    Alec Rawls, who has been working with Tom Burnett Sr. to stop the Crescent of Embrace memorial to Flight 93, explains the circumstances (related by Mr. Burnett in 2008, but not published until now). Mr. Burnett had been telling his fellow design competition jurors that the crescent is a well known Islamic symbol. In addition to the giant central crescent (now called a broken circle) Tom also objected to the minaret-like Tower of Voices. "I made a point at that meeting," says Mr. Burnett, "to tell people that we have an Islamist design here that can't go forward, please, stay...

    I have never read this true story before. Forgive me if it's been posted before. ================================== Man Who Led Charge On September 11 Plane HadPremonitions Of Happening by Michael H. Brown The widow of Flight 93 hero Thomas Burnett says her husband was a devout Catholic who had premonitions of the fate that met him and 44 others on the fateful day of September 11, 2001 -- including a hunch his life would not be a long one and that his mission in life would somehow involve the White House. It is now widely believed the hijacked plane, which crashed...

    Any time Erin Burnett tells a guest "You will not be back, you have to be more polite than that" you know the "guest" is telling the truth, the one commodity rarely if ever discussed on General Electric's circus station. Enter (or rather, exit) R&R Consulting's Sylvain Raynes, a structured finance expert, who at 3:10 into the clip takes on what he calls the "public relations officers" for Goldman, and asks "is it all right if I am a little critical?" Apparently the answer is no. First, Sylvain completely destroys Cramer's false "breaking news" about Goldman being long Abacus... And...

    Similarly, we believe Sarah Palin is making perhaps the smartest, most brilliant, tactical move of 21st Century politics in pursuing the travelogue/adventure/exploration of Alaska series with Mark Burnet. Here’s why: We know Sarah Palin is running for President in 2012. We know this show is part of her strategy for winning. We think it is a brilliant tactical move.

    She may have failed to become America’s vice-president but Sarah Palin’s transformation into a successful public figure has taken a fresh twist, as she tries her hand as a television documentary maker... Sources close to Mrs Palin yesterday denied initial reports that the putative idea was a reality series featuring her and her family. They said instead that it would be a documentary, which she would produce, about the people, wildlife and geography of the state of which she was governor until quitting abruptly in July last year...

    Don't like the notion of Wall Street employees receiving bonuses? Shoot the messenger - as Adam Green at The Huffington Post has done. In a Feb. 2 post on The Huffington Post, Green said it was bad form for CNBC "Street Signs" host Erin Burnett to even think about considering the other side of the anti-Wall Street bonus argument, since some Wall Street banks received TARP funds, courtesy of the taxpayer. "There are, though - well, how should we say this - the taxpayer money is not being used to pay the bonuses," Burnett explained on NBC's Feb. 1 "Meet...

    The father of a Flight 93 victim says a crescent-shaped design as part of a memorial to the hijacked airliner "does not properly honor our people." Tom Burnett Sr. of Northfield, Minnesota, objects because a crescent is sometimes used as a symbol of Islam and the September 11th attacks were plotted by Muslims. Burnett spoke today at a meeting of the commission advising the National Park Service on the design. He wants an investigation of how the design was chosen. But Park Service officials and family members who like the design say it was fairly and impartially selected out of...

    Another example of liberal hypocrisy Why is it ok for Democrats to sexually harass employees in the workplace? Here we have an example of Chris Matthews sexually harassing co-worker Erin Burnett of CNBC on national television. They are indeed co-workers as they both work for the same parent company. Granted, Mathews’ speech is slurred and his face is quite red so we could give him the benefit of the doubt and postulate that he had a few too many cocktails at lunch time; however, being inebriated on the job wouldn’t exactly mitigate the circumstance. Most workplace sexual harassment cases...
