  • 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...
  • CNN's Erin Burnett Surprised Bombing Suspects Aren't 'Stereotypical' Americans

    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...
  • UPDATE: 'The Bible' Producers Call Controversy Over Satan's Resemblance To Obama "Utter Nonsense"

    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...
  • Flt 93 mom on Crescent jury: “I don’t want to reach out to those people! They murdered my daughter!”

    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. http://youtube.com/watch?v=xKBDOLdU-Ug&mode=related&search= 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.

Burnett said she fell hard the morning of Sept. 11 when her husband, Tom Burnett, called from aboard Flight 93, telling his wife the plane had been hijacked and he and other passengers were planning to ram the cockpit and fight the terrorists. He told her not to worry....

    The Catholic Spirit via Catholic Online ^ | Sept. 6, 2006 | Julie Carroll
    By Julie Carroll 9/6/2006 The Catholic Spirit ST. PAUL, Minn. (The Catholic Spirit) - Minnesota native Thomas Burnett Jr. once told his wife, Deena, that he believed God had a message for him. At the time, Burnett didn’t know what the message was, but he told his wife, “I know it will impact a great number of people, and it has something to do with the White House.” On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, Burnett’s words proved prophetic as the hijacked airplane he was on, presumably targeting the White House, crashed in a rural Pennsylvania field. Voice recordings recovered...

    The widow of Tom Burnett, who helped lead the passenger revolt on hijacked Flight 93, says in a new book that he had struggled to figure out what he believed was a message from God that might have presaged the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Deena Burnett wrote that a year before the attacks, her husband, who rarely spoke openly about his faith, told her he'd been attending Mass daily to try to understand a message from God that had "something to do with the White House." He told her he hadn't figured it out, "but I know it will impact...

    Van Zandt County Sheriff Pat Burnett announced Tuesday that he is switching parties. Burnett, formerly a Democrat, has aligned himself with the Republican Party. He said his decision has nothing to do with the people of the Democratic Party, but hinges entirely on platform issues. "I'm committed to doing the right thing," he said. "I thought it was the appropriate time to do it. It's not right before my election so it becomes an issue, it's the issue now." Burnett also said it's no secret that he ran as a Democrat in 2000 because "my mother asked me to." "I...

All of you who are not Maureen Dowd, please avert your gazes to the classified ads section. Thank you. The wheel has turned, ma'am, and it's time for you to go. Maureen Dowd has long ranted in print against conservatives, Christians and President Bush. Not surprisingly, she also detests the Iraq war, the military-industrial complex and America in general. And last December, she even admitted she cannot stand the warmth and giving spirit of Christmas. If by now you...
