The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Harvey Weinstein’s TV movie on bin Ladin raid is a possible FEC violation

Written By: Bob - Oct• 25•12

Harvey Weinstein’s TV movie on the SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Ladin has apparently been cut in such a way as to grossly overstate and inaccurately represent the role of Barack Hussein Obama. At the same time, the movie had artificially introduced Governor Mitt Romney into the film as a villain.

This film, airing on the National Geographic Channel, just two days before the election, clearly poses the risk of being an in-kind campaign contribution, and is therefore illegal.

Contact the Public Relations office of National Geographic at and politely express your concerns.

National Geographic has nothing to lose by postponing the film until after the election if their intent is to merely tell the story of SEAL Team Six.

Update: SEALs are buying time during the movie to air aids protesting what they see as a propaganda effort designed to benefit the Obama regime:

“President Obama wanted credit after our military killed bin Laden. Highly classified secrets were leaked, endangering real heroes and their families. But when terrorists kill SEALs and diplomats in Libya, this administration doesn’t tell the truth about what happened, and the President says it is just a bump in the road,” Scott Taylor, former Navy SEAL and president of the group, proclaims in the 30-second spot. “There is nothing acceptable about playing politics with national security and American lives… Aren’t some things more important than politics?”

“Bump in the Road” was filmed about three weeks ago and is already airing on some stations in Ohio and Virginia. A rep for OPSEC said that the spot has been approved by National Geographic, although the channel was not able to immediately comment on the issue.

“As soon as we heard the film was slanted to promote (Obama) and conveniently come out just before the election, making him the President look strong on foreign policy and national security we knew we had to do something,” Taylor told us. “The Obama administration has grossly exploited bin Laden’s death, and all the leaked information has hindered operations and put lives at risk.”

    Ace said that NatGeo has cut that part back out.

    You should not cast doubt on our great president. For 40 minutes he watched other people risk their lives, knowing full well that if the operation was not successful it could cost him popularity points. It takes a brave man to make the decisions that he did and run the risk of losing the adoration of millions. We have the best president ever, just ask him.

    “Now you men will only be risking your lives, whilst I will be risking an almost certain Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.”

    We all know Obama had nothing to do with the OBL raid. It is obvious because 1) he had no seat at the table in the iconic photo released from the NSA complex 2) you can check Getty images and find a photo of him returning from the golf course wearing the same outfit he wears in the photo.

    And most important 3) The photo was *not* taken in the President’s Situation Room. That is a small conference room in the NSA complex. It’s not even the Briefing Room. It was likely reserved for the OBL raid for some generic purpose to avoid having the WH (Jarrett) find out about it.

    We need to spread this far and wide so that Obama’s hagiography in the movie is seen as preposterous and fatuous.

    Not knowing if words can penetrate their love for Obama and their hate for America, I used 50-calibre language. I aimed center-mass.
