Is Bathtub Boy Headed back to MSNBC??

Former ESPEN MSNBC ESPEN Current TV's Keith Olbermann  
Mediaite’s Joe Concha, who must surely have NBC in full leak investigation mode by now with the way he’s been able to break scoop after scoop recently, writes that Andrew Lack is going to meet with former host, Keith Olbermann.  
"So with all of that said, a well-placed source now informs me that a meeting has been set between Olbermann and Lack to discuss his return to the network and his old 8:00 PM slot. This arrangement was something that Mediaite’s Andrew Kirell first wrote about as a rumor in July."
It’s not impossible. Stranger things have happened. If ESPN can bring him back…MSNBC, who are in a perpetual fight with  'The Missing Airplane Network' for the bottom of the barrel of Cable news, can too Perhaps they can scrape up the has been Alan Colmes from the back alley pavement and have a real Olbermann / Colmes Clown show.  But if Olbermann does comes back and leads off with “As I was saying…” one more time, someone is going to be throwing a brick through their TV screen.

I Doubt They Really Care What John Kerry Thinks......

Secretary of State John Kerry Thursday told Russia that the U.S. has "concerns" that most of Russia's military actions in Syria are not targeting the Islamic State, and instead are defying U.S. policy by targeting groups that oppose Syrian President Bashar Assad.  Putin is showing just how embarrassingly weak Barack Obama really is on the World Stage in his faculty-lounge fantasy world, and just how pathetic John Kerry can look.....

Apple Fingered as the Worst Tax Avoider in the US

Fruity cargo cult Apple is one of the worst US tax avoiders, according to new statistics compiled by the Citizens for Tax Justice and the US Public Interest Research Group Education Fund.
The study found that nearly three-quarters of the firms on the Fortune 500 list of biggest American companies by gross revenue operate tax haven subsidiaries in countries like Bermuda, Ireland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Jobs’ Mob holds $181.1 billion offshore, more than any other US company, and would owe an estimated $59.2 billion in US taxes if it tried to bring the money back to the United States from its three overseas tax havens, the study said.
The 500 largest American companies hold more than $2.1 trillion in accumulated profits offshore to avoid paying US taxes. If they all paid up, the country would give $620 billion to the US economy. Citizens for Tax Justice and the US Public Interest Research Group Education Fund used the companies’ own financial filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission to reach their conclusions. “At least 358 companies, nearly 72 percent of the Fortune 500, operate subsidiaries in tax haven jurisdictions as of the end of 2014,” the study said.
“All told these 358 companies maintain at least 7,622 tax haven subsidiaries.” Fortune 500 companies hold more than $2.1 trillion in accumulated profits offshore to avoid taxes, with just 30 of the firms accounting for $1.4 trillion of that amount, or 65 percent, the study found. Fifty-seven of the companies disclosed that they would expect to pay a combined $184.4 billion in additional US taxes if their profits were not held offshore. Their filings indicated they were paying about 6 percent in taxes overseas, compared to a 35 percent U.S. corporate tax rate, the study calims. 
“Congress can and should take strong action to prevent corporations from using offshore tax havens, which in turn would restore basic fairness to the tax system, reduce the deficit and improve the functioning of markets,” the study said.

The Boat Never Returned to Port......Presumed Lost at Sea

Activist Group Pushing For Removal Of New Orleans’ Monuments Tied To #BlackLivesMatter

An activist group seeking the removal of four Confederate-related monuments in New Orleans apparently has ties to the #BlackLivesMatter movement. The group “STAND With Dignity” is a partner group under the “New Orleans Workers’ Center for Racial Justice” group, which often holds rallies comprised for immigrant and illegal immigrants demanding the state to cease deportations.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s plan to remove Lee Circle, PGT Beauregard, Jefferson Davis and the Liberty monument has been met with an outcry of backlash from residents in the city.
Not only has an influential group known as Save Our Circle been formed to save all history and art in the city of New Orleans, but two recent polls show that residents and citizens of the state are overwhelmingly not on-board with the removal, including black voters and Democrats.
STAND With Dignity often uses Twitter to promote the hashtags #BlackWorkersMatter and #BlackLivesMatter. And they usually get what the want.  Most recently, the group was successful in lobbying the New Orleans City Council to increase the city’s minimum wage to $10.55 per hour, a plan bound to hurt businesses across the city, as it has happened in Seattle, Washington.

Call for Study of Links Between Pharmaceuticals and Mass Killers

Is the proliferation of psychotropic drugs commonly prescribed for depression and mental disorders along with media hype of shootings causing unexpected societal problems and human behavior?

Truth In Media
Following recent media reports of high-profile mass shootings, a Republican assemblywoman from Nevada is calling for an investigation into whether psychiatric pharmaceuticals commonly taken by mass murderers can cause side effects that may contribute to their mental health decline.
According to KSNV Las Vegas, GOP Assemblywoman Michele Fiore says that, rather than blaming mass shootings on the guns used by the perpetrators, studies should be done on the drugs that many of them have a history of having taken to treat mental health disorders.  
"We have to look into what is being prescribed and what is in these meds just like clinical studies. Why don’t we do studies on the medication all of these shooters were taking and take that medication off the market? Obviously, medications can alter your mind just as alcohol can alter the mind."
Though it is not yet known whether the perpetrator in last week’s tragic shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon was on psychiatric medication, early reports from The Oregonian note that he identified himself by the social media screen name “lithium love,” he mentioned anger and depression in a note that was found in connection with the attack, and he had a long history of behavioral problems in school.
He had also been discharged by the U.S. Army midway through basic training in 2008 and graduated from a school that The Oregonian described as “geared for special education students with a range of issues from learning disabilities, health problems and autism or Asperger’s Disorder.”
In August of this year, a CBS46 Atlanta Reality Check report by Ben Swann raised questions about the possibility of a connection between mass murderers and pharmaceutical drugs used to treat mental health disorders, noting that 26 high-profile perpetrators had been taking psychiatric medication.
Watch the Reality Check below.

#PissForEquality: Feminists Fall for Hoax Campaign

  PEE On Thyself In Protest:

Feminists have fallen for another hoax campaign, this one encouraging them to pee on themselves in the name of equality. It's known by the hilarious twitter hashtag #PissForEquality. The troll hoax was created by the notorious basement dwellers at the website 4chan. On October 2, one 4chan member wrote: 
What if we somehow get Tumblr tards to publicly piss or shit their pants in the name of Equality?'”

 And it wasn’t long before the feminists fell for it:  

More Loony Feminists Here

This is by no means the first time that feminists have openly embraced something that was originally created by 4chan to make fun of them.  The “free bleeding” movement, in which feminists post pictures of themselves showing menstrual blood running down their legs in order to draw attention to ‘period shaming’ was another troll campaign contrived by 4chan.

3rd wave feminism has become synonymous with outlandish preoccupations like manspreading, trigger warnings, safe spaces, slut walks and free bleeding, while genuine threats to women’s rights in Islamic countries continue to be ignored.

Florida Senate Candidate Admits to Sacrificing Goat and Drinking It's Blood

Oh, You Silly Libertarians.....

Augustus Sol Invictus

Orlando, FL — Augustus Sol Invictus, a man running for U.S. Senate in Florida, recently admitted to sacrificing a goat and drinking its blood during a ritual. Adrian Wyllie, the chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida, made the accusations against Invictus this week as he resigned from the party out of fear of being associated with Invictus. Wyllie also accused him of attempting to recruit Neo-Nazis and wanting to instigate a new civil war.
“He is the absolute exact opposite of a Libertarian. He’s a self-proclaimed fascist. He’s promoting a second civil war. It’s absolute insanity. We must explain to people this is the opposite of Libertarians. This guy has no place in the Libertarian Party.” 
Wyllie also wrote that Invictus "has repeatedly vowed that it is his destiny to start a second civil war in America."  Speaking in a later interview, Invictus admitted to the animal sacrifice, but denied he “dismembered” the animal.

“I did sacrifice a goat. I know that’s probably a quibble in the mind of most Americans. I sacrificed an animal to the god of the wilderness … Yes, I drank the goat’s blood,” he admitted. 
Invictus reportedly belonged to a pagan sect that sacrificed animals and later left because of drama between him and other members. According to Sunday World, Invictus belonged to a sect called “Thelema,” which is heavily based on the philosophy of drug addicted bisexual social critic and dark occultist, Aleister Crowley.

“I have never dismembered a goat in my life. I have performed animal sacrifices as part of my religion. I was expelled from the order for political reasons. And animal sacrifice was part of it.
