    If there was ever a case study on why preppers should be prepared to defend their supplies, the upcoming episode of National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers would provide a perfect example. ---------------------------------------------------- National Geographic appears to have chosen Smith as a poster boy to give the preparedness-minded a bad name. I wouldn’t set your DVR for this one – excerpts seem to indicate a show full of bad advice and ill-thought-out “strategies” from someone who refers to himself as “a professional deer hunter

    Over coming weeks millions of Americans will be tuning in to NatGeo’s new American Blackout film about surviving in a post-power grid collapse environment that lacks electricity, fresh water and the normal flow of commerce. For most it will be nothing more than standard evening entertainment, but what if such an event turns out to be a future American reality? Such a scenario may seem improbable, but just in the last several years we’ve seen it play out time and again all over the world, albeit in situations limited in time and scope. Hurricane Katrina and over 50,000 people stranded...

    But with less than four weeks until the premiere of Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout? on the National Geographic Channel, news about the series is coming faster than you can say “Be Prepared.” We already know the series debuts at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. Central) on Monday, March 4. Today’s scoop: A new website for the show, toughscout.com, just launched. The site channels excitement surrounding the show into a recruiting pitch for boys and girls who get inspired to sign up for Scouting. It encourages current Scouts to share their Scouting adventures on Instagram and Twitter. And it’s...

    The advocacy group backed a Change.org petition started by Will Oliver, a 20-year-old gay Eagle Scout, that calls on Nat Geo to air a disclaimer clarifying the network's views before each episode of its new series, "Are You Tougher than a Boy Scout." It debuts this spring. "That National Geographic would brush aside countless gay teens suffering at the hands of the BSA, shrugging off injustice as just another ‘point of view,' is irresponsible," GLAAD president Herndon Graddick said in a statement. "By airing this program, National Geographic is providing support and publicity to an organization that harms young people...

    The latest episode of “Taboo” aired last night on National Geographic Channel. It explored the issue of “Teen Sex.” One segment introduced viewers to the Kreung people of Cambodia, who build “love huts” for their teen-aged daughters to have pre-marital sex with as many teen-aged boys as they like. Another featured 15-year-old Australian tart Cassie Osborne and her teen-aged girlfriends, wearing barely-there dresses, practicing their sexual flirtation, looking forward to becoming some young bloke’s boy toy. And yet another took a look at Purity Balls here in the United States, in which teen-aged girls pledge to remain pure and abstain...

    "Dark flow" is no fluke, suggests a new study that strengthens the case for unknown, unseen "structures" lurking on the outskirts of creation. In 2008 scientists reported the discovery of hundreds of galaxy clusters streaming in the same direction at more than 2.2 million miles (3.6 million kilometers) an hour. This mysterious motion can't be explained by current models for distribution of mass in the universe. So the researchers made the controversial suggestion that the clusters are being tugged on by the gravity of matter outside the known universe. Now the same team has found that the dark flow extends...

    An astute and generous ruler, a brilliant general, and one of the most imaginative and energetic builders of the ancient world, ... Now who could the National Geographic be talking about? Why of course it is King Herod the Great! Herod guided his kingdom to new prosperity and power. He was all about hope and change. Yet today he is best known as the sly and murderous monarch of Matthew's Gospel, who slaughtered every male infant in Bethlehem in an unsuccessful attempt to kill the newborn Jesus, the prophesied King of the Jews. During the Middle Ages he became an...
