If there is one thing that everyone at MSNBC would agree on, it is that your taxes could never be high enough — and yet:
A Heat Street review of public records show that a total of six current, prominent MSNBC pundits have recently settled federal or state tax liens, while one still has tax problems. Moreover, at least two other hosts who recently left the network have also had massive tax liens filed against them. The most conspicuous tax cheat is hardcore redistributionist Al Sharpton, who currently owes $1.5 million — admittedly down from $4.5 million a couple of years ago.

Someone has a sense of humor. Check out this course offered by Udemy
Dan Rather on Journalism & Finding the Truth in the News
Target audience? “Anyone with a passion for the truth.”
Anyone who is not rolling on the floor laughing must be too young to remember that Rather climbed to the top of Big Media only to see his career collapse in disgrace when he tried to sabotage George W. Bush’s reelection with clearly fake documents casting aspersions upon W’s National Guard service. Years later, Rather was still lying that it had never been established that the documents were forged.
If anyone from the fake news industry could be less qualified to teach about the truth than the compulsive liar Brian Williams, it could only be Dan Blather.

MORE FROM THE RELIGION OF PEACE!
On New Year’s Eve in Dortmund, a mob of over a thousand Muslim colonists, shouting the terrorist battle cry “Allahu Akhbar,” threw firecrackers at police, fired pyrotechnics into crowds of Germans attempting to celebrate the New Year, and set fire to the Reinoldi Church. Built from 1250 to 1270, it is the oldest church in Dortmund. Typically, the German media is playing this down to the point of denying anything out of the ordinary happened. We know better, thanks to video.

Resisting, Organizing, and Building in the Age of Trump,” an eight-hour doctoral and law student teach-in taking place on January 14, says it will be “bringing together DC activists/organizers and academics from across disciplines to 
discuss the nature of the relationship of Trumpism to racism, bigotry, and oppression in all its multifaceted forms and the urgent question of how the left should move forward.”
THAT'S HIGHER EDUCATION FOR YOU!!!

A new report by a government watchdog agency says jihadists are partnering with Mexican drug cartels along the U.S.-Mexican border, preparing to carry out precision attacks in American cities. Judicial Watch cites confidential U.S. and Mexican law enforcement sources for the disturbing report, which builds on earlier JW reports shining light on the jihadists’ exploitation of the porous border policies of President Barack Obama. As part of the plan, Islamists have arrived recently at the Monterrey International Airport situated in Apodaca, a city in the Mexican state of Nuevo León, about 130 miles south of the Texas border, JW reports.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova recently tore into Obama with a brutal statement about what a loser he is. Wrote Zakharova, “Today America, the American people were humiliated by their own president. Not by international terrorists, not by [the] enemy’s troops.”
She added, “This time Washington was slapped by own master, who has complicated the urgent tasks for the incoming team in the extreme.” Zakharova said that Obama’s administration is “a group of foreign policy losers, bitter and narrow-minded. Today, Obama officially admitted it.”

There are important questions to be answered about recent LGBT bathroom legislation and whether transgenders will be permitted to use a restroom of the gender that they "identify" with or be required to use the restroom of their biological gender. If the latter, will public restrooms be required to have a Genital Inspection Station posted at the entrance to all public restrooms? Who will have to pay these Pecker Checkers, the people using the restroom, or the entity that owns the restroom? And how much money will a Pecker Checker be paid to check peckers? Or, do we pay a Pecker Checker by the number of peckers checked? How many peckers can a Pecker Checker check if a Pecker Checker could check peckers? What has this country come to when the U.S. Department of Labor has to create a new job description of Politically Correct Restroom Service Inspectors? Want to guess their motto ...........???  "If You gotta pee - We gotta see!"

A Republican congressman took matters into his own hands Friday and personally removed a painting depicting police officers as pigs that a colleague had allowed to be displayed at the U.S. Capitol complex. “I was angry,” Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., told FoxNews.com. “I’ve seen the press [reporting] on this for about a week or so. … I’m in the Marine Corps. If you want it done, just call us.”

From Fox News: A Massachusetts sheriff wants to help President-elect Donald Trump build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border — by offering up inmates to work on the project. Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, a long-time proponent of strict immigration enforcement, presented his idea at an inauguration speech on Wednesday marking his fourth six-year term in office.

From Daily Mail: President Obama is planning to transfer at least 22 additional Guantanamo Bay detainees out of the military detention center before he leaves office later this month, DailyMail.com has learned. The group being released will be drawn from those held at Guantanamo – who include an accused senior al Qaeda bomb-maker, the terror group’s top financial manager, and two intended 9/11 hijackers, who have all been held in the Cuba-based U.S. detention facility for more than a decade.

From USA Today: Stanley Black & Decker said Thursday that it would open a new $35 million manufacturing plant in the U.S. after acquiring the Craftsman tool brand from ailing retailer Sears Holdings. Expanding American manufacturing makes “business sense” amid “pervasive” uncertainty regarding the future of U.S. trade with China and Mexico, Stanley Black & Decker CEO James Loree told investors Thursday in a conference call. Although he did not mention Donald Trump by name in his remarks to investors, Loree’s comments had all the hallmarks of an effort to inoculate his company from the possible effects of the president-elect’s threatened “border tax.”

Public health officials have called the current opioid epidemic the worst drug crisis in American history, killing more than 33,000 people in 2015. Overdose deaths were nearly equal to the number of deaths from car crashes. In 2015, for the first time, deaths from heroin alone surpassed gun homicides.

Artificial intelligence is growing fast. Recent research puts it as a $5 billion market by 2020, and Gartner estimates that 6 billion connected "things" will require AI support by 2018. Connected machines, wearables, and other business tools like voice assistants are already boosting productivity at work and at home.

Two reports just surfaced that tackle the troubling predictions that automation, artificial intelligence, and robots are going to supplant human workers. The McKinsey Global Institute and Glassdoor research indicates that we don’t have to worry that we humans will become obsolete.

A thread of just 20km of ice is now preventing the 5,000 sq km mass from floating away, following the sudden expansion last month of a rift that has been steadily growing for more than a decade. The iceberg, which is positioned on the most northern major ice shelf in Antarctica, known as Larsen C, is predicted to be one of the largest 10 break-offs ever recorded.
