Geraldo calls his Facebook followers "pieces of shit," turns comments over to "FOX NEWS OFFICIALS"

One of my "red state friends" just posted this on his Facebook page. He's one of the "pieces of shit" Geraldo referred to. He's not happy about it.

Geraldo Rivera lashed out at his Facebook followers on Monday and said he is turning over some of their comments to Fox News officials and Facebook, citing them as inappropriate.

“Just checking some of your responses to my recent posts on the president's immigration action. Most are spirited, but within the normal boundaries of decent discourse. Some, however, are hateful, ignorant and racist, even mentioning my family,” the Fox News and radio host wrote on Facebook. “That is something I cannot abide. I'm turning your posts over to Fox News and Facebook authorities because you little pieces of sh-- hiding in the shadows of your mother's basement deserve no less.”

Last week, in several Facebook posts, Rivera applauded the president’s decision to issue executive actions that would shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation.

“Bravo Mr. President for having the courage or political will or for doing the hard cold political calculation finally to do the right thing for five million undocumented, but otherwise law-abiding immigrants,” Rivera wrote on Thursday. “These people have been demonized by hard-right-wingers who have found in them convenient scapegoats to blame for whatever ails us from ISIS to Ebola. They have been cynically exploited to serve as a wedge to divide Americans. Get over them. They are here and thanks to Barack Obama they are staying. And America is better because of it.”


If you LOVE the LEGENDARY Joni Mitchell as I do, you'll love her MORE after reading THIS.

Joni Mitchell Reveals Why She Nixed Taylor Swift-Starring Biopic

"I squelched that," Mitchell says. "I said to the producer, 'All you've got is a girl with high cheekbones'"

By Daniel Kreps | November 25, 2014

In April 2012, it was reported that Taylor Swift was in talks to portray folk legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Joni Mitchell in the big-screen adaptation of Girls Like Us, a book that focused on the impact of Mitchell, Carol King and Carly Simon. As recently as October 2012, Swift admitted that she was still eager to play Mitchell, but the role hadn't been confirmed yet. Two years later, we finally know why the film wasn't officially greenlit: Mitchell prevented the biopic from being made.

"I squelched that," Mitchell told The Sunday Times of the nixed biopic (via NME). "I said to the producer, 'All you've got is a girl with high cheekbones.' It's just a lot of gossip, you don't have the great scenes." Mitchell also said of the source material, written by Sheila Weller, "There's a lot of nonsense about me in books… assumptions, assumptions, assumptions."

"That's actually not confirmed," Swift said in October 2012 when asked if she would play Mitchell. "I wish I could say it's confirmed! But the thing about movies that I've learned is – I've been reading scripts for five years, and you just don't know what ones are going to get greenlit and which ones aren't, so I can't talk about it unless it's the real thing."

The Newsroom actress Alison Pill was also in talks to play Carole King in Girls Like Us before Mitchell had the film blocked. John Sayles was hired as screenwriter with Kate Jacobs directing the movie. Girls Like Us would have been the first dramatic turn for Swift, who made her big screen debut in the 2010 ensemble romantic comedy Valentine's Day. The 1989 singer finally tackled drama when she appeared in the 2012 adaptation of the young adult classic The Giver.

The FINAL prediction of Nostradamus comes TRUE...BEHOLD the BACON MAC & CHEESE STUFFED DONUT.

Someone Actually Made a Bacon Mac n’ Cheese-Stuffed Doughnut
PYT, the wacky and innovative burger spot in Philadelphia, has come out with this carb-filled creation
November 24, 2014 | 02:48 PM



America: the land of the free and the home of… extreme culinary creations designed to clog your arteries and make your mouth water. Take the KFC Double Down for instance, and the Krispy Kreme doughnut burger. Well now the bar for fattening and fried foods has been raised with the introduction of the bacon macaroni and cheese-stuffed doughnut, by PYT in Philadelphia: home of “America’s Craaaziest Burgers.” Well it looks like they’re trying to expand their horizons with wacky doughnuts too.

The mac n’ cheese-stuffed doughnut is described on the PYT website as being “straight outta the fat kid food lab,” and is a “warm glazed donut studded with cheesy, bacon-y mac & cheese, topped with crumbled bacon.” You can get the mac n’ cheese doughnut with a side of the cheeseburger-stuffed “D’oh Nut Burger,” which also launched at PYT this month. We really hope that these heart attack-inducing stuffed doughnuts come with a free cardiologist visit.

R.I.P. Ken ("Masahiro" from "Black Rain") Takakura, known as "The Clint Eastwood Of Japan"

He passed away on November 10th, just found his obit. Rest well, Taka-san.

Date of Birth 16 February 1931, Nakama, Fukuoka, Japan
Date of Death 10 November 2014, Tokyo, Japan (malignant lymphoma)

Ken Takakura was a Japanese actor best known for his brooding style and the stoic, honorable presence he brought to his roles.

Known as the "Clint Eastwood" of Japan, Takakura gained his streetwise swagger and tough guy persona watching yakuza turf battles over the lucrative black market and racketeering in postwar Fukuoka. This subject was covered in one of his most famous movies, Shôwa zankyô-den (1965) in which he played an honorable old-school yakuza among the violent post-war gurentai.

A graduate of the prestigious Meiji University in Tokyo, Takakura happened by an audition in 1955 at the Toei Film Company, and decided to look in. Toei found a natural in Takakura as he debuted with Denkô karate uchi (1956) (Lightning Karate Blow) in 1956. As luck would have it, Japan experienced a boom in gangster films in the 1960s as the Japanese people struggled with the generational differences between those raised in pre-war and post-war Japan and these were Takakura's stock in trade. His breakout role came in 1965 playing a ex-con antihero in Abashiri Bangaichi (1965). By the time he left Toei in 1976, he had appeared in over 180 films.

Takakura gained international recognition after starring in the 1975 Sydney Pollack sleeper hit The Yakuza (1974) with Robert Mitchum and is probably best known in the West for his role in Ridley Scott's Black Rain (1989) in which he surprises American cops played by Michael Douglas and Andy Garcia by showing he can speak English. He again proved himself bankable to Western audiences in the 1992 Fred Schepisi comedy Mr. Baseball (1992) starring Tom Selleck.


Kirk Cameron Ministers To Gay People In 'Deeper Understanding' Montage Video

NOTE: If you follow the link to the clip, you'll see that Cameron's people have had it removed for "copyright infringement."

Kirk Cameron Ministers To Gay People In 'Deeper Understanding' Montage Video


"The video was made for the blog "Everything is Terrible," which is a comedy site that features funny edits of found footage. We thought it would get a few laughs, and that would be the end of it. We weren't expecting it to be shared around the Internet as much as it has. But, it gives me great pleasure to show the world what an arrogant douchebag Kirk Cameron is.

I've noticed a lot of comments made that our edit is portraying Kirk purposely in a negative light. Yes, we did cherry-pick some of the more outrageous quotes and some things are presented out of context, but if you watch the entire, unedited video, the message of intolerance and hate is exactly the same.

One thing we were on the fence about including were the bits with the transgender woman. We didn't want to present her as someone to laugh at in the video, so I hope people recognize that she is a hero for standing up to their bullying (because that's what it really is -- "Why don't you just dress as a man and all your problems will be over" says Kirk's partner in crime, Ray Comfort)."

Cameron is currently taking a little time away from of his busy anti-queer agenda to try and save Christmas from the pagans, proving there truly is no rest for the wicked.

I'll be playing the Über-RARE 9 min. version of Buffalo Springfield's "Bluebird" on my show tonight

Along with "Last Dance" from the equally rare (NEVER released on CD) "Time Fades Away" album from Neil Young.

PLUS "Outside" (the new Foo Fighters song with Joe Walsh on lead guitar), and the LIVE version of Keith Richards doing "Gimme Shelter" from his "Eileen" EP.

And I hope you like jammin' too.

SHOCKING! President's announcement on immigration fell short of Jeb's expectations. SHOCKING!


Eyeing 2016, Clinton, Bush weigh in on Obama's immigration plan

WASHINGTON Thu Nov 20, 2014 11:03pm EST

Republican Jeb Bush, a former two-term Florida governor who is considering entering the race, said Obama's plan "undermines" efforts to forge permanent legislative reforms.

"It is time for Republican leaders in Congress to act. We must demonstrate to Americans we are the party that will tackle serious challenges and build broad-based consensus to achieve meaningful reforms for our citizens and our future," said Bush, whose brother and father both held the office of president.

Even before Obama announced his immigration order, Republican governors at a conference in Florida were debating how best to react, looking ahead to 2016.

Several potential GOP presidential candidates such as Ohio Governor John Kasich, New Jersey's Chris Christie and Wisconsin's Scott Walker warned congressional Republicans against shutting down the U.S. government in response to Obama's actions.

President Obama: Make Mitch McConnell and John Boehner's life a living hell for the next 2 years

See, here is the deal, my friends.

"President" George W. Bush was an illiterate, arrogant, silver spoon excuse for a human being.

I don't pretend for a MOMENT that President Obama reads DU.

But here's what I DO believe.

In the Six Steps Of Kevin Bacon world we live in, I ABSOLUTELY believe that SOMEONE who "briefs" the President scans DU on a regular basis.

I am not 100% happy with everything President Obama has done (or has chosen not to do) in his two terms (so far).

But just as Eric Cartman savored the delicious taste of Scott Tenorman's tears, I am THRILLED with President Obama's "KISS MY ASS" attitude toward the "demands" of the arrogant and clueless McConnell and Boehner following the November 4th elections.


KEEP disrupting.

KEEP telling the American people that your ONLY goal is to FUCK Obama as BADLY as you can.

And I will THANK you for a DEMOCRATIC PARTY President at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in 2016.

Stupid fucking CLOWNS. You can stop this shit right NOW or you can enjoy the bread YOU buttered.

Just got a first look at the GOP's new Keystone marketing campaign, and I have my doubts...
