    A would-be actor took a shockingly extreme step to improve his career by cutting off his own arm so that he could more easily pose as a war veteran, only to have a handful of small, modest parts to show for his extreme and bloody trouble. According to KOB4, Todd Latourette, who claims he is bipolar, cut off and cauterized his right arm roughly 17 years ago while he was off his medications. “I severed my hand with a Skil saw,” he told the outlet. “The state of my mind was a psychotic episode.” Surprisingly, the move worked and Latourette...

  • Five major psychiatric diseases have overlapping patterns of genetic activity, new study shows

    Many studies have identified variations in the genetic code that seem to be more common in people with psychiatric disorders. This approach goes a step further to show how genes are more or less active in the brains of people with various conditions. The study confirmed that genetic variations contributed to the patterns of activity in the brains, but as the authors wrote, “there is undoubtedly a contribution from environmental effects.” Psychiatric disorders have some overlapping symptoms, making them difficult to diagnose. The molecular signatures in the new study suggested that schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and autism have dysfunctional synapses, the points of...

    I really have to stop asking myself what’s next in the military’s long, twisted, dark journey into the subterranean hell known as political correctness and general stupidity. As part of the military’s current trend of giving the unqualified a chance to serve; of allowing every freak of nature, social misfit, SJW and dud on active duty, the army has announced that they will be granting “waivers” to certain recruits who violate criteria related to mental-health violations like having a history of bipolar disorder, or self-mutilation. Imagine sitting in a foxhole with a bi polar nut job who wants to cut...

    The leech man: Lawyer hopes nightly blood-sucking treatment will help return his sight after his 'schizophrenic son blinded him'A lawyer is hoping that a nightly blood-sucking leech treatment will help return his eyesight after his schizophrenic son allegedly blinded him in a blitz attack. John Dunlap, 80, is placing his trust in an experimental treatment that requires him to attach several leeches around his eyes so that one day he might see again. The lawyer from Memphis started the bizarre therapy after his bipolar and schizophrenic son Andrew, 41, allegedly attacked Dunlap and blinded him in 2015. With the help...

    Around 1 percent of female adolescents have anorexia. Think about that… one out of every one hundred young women are starving themselves, sometimes to death! Should we celebrate these poor young women and help further their mental issues by agreeing they are fat and need to lose weight? Should we assist them in their various methods of self-destruction? Should we have our public schools celebrate, embrace, and reinforce their mental disorder? Perhaps install fun-house type mirrors which add weight to their reflections to help them connect with their perceived body condition? I think most would agree these would be ghoulish...

    Bi-coastal, or bipolar? Incapable of understanding that their problems lie not with the voters, but with their own unalterable, unpopular, and unworkable goals. If you watched any news over the holiday weekend (personally I try to avoid as much of it as possible) you no doubt saw Barack and Michelle Obama’s final “Christmas Greeting” video. I put “Christmas Greeting” in quotes, because that’s not really what it was. Like most of what Obama does, it was less about the big picture and more about selling the notion of his own greatness. Just look at this passage, where he outlines his...

    "I watch you. I believe you actually don't want to do damage," Beck told Bee. "As a guy who has done damage, I don't want to do anymore damage." Samantha Bee invited Glenn Beck on Full Frontal in an effort to reach across the aisle, wear Christmas sweaters and get to know somebody with a completely different audience than her own. "Glenn and I put on our Christmas sweaters and got to work on healing the nation," said Bee in her introduction, where she talked about how Beck has recently been reaching out to the media to "apologize for his...

    Economic authoritarianism has now arrived... Mark LevinˇSunday, December 4, 2016 Economic authoritarianism has now arrived; sorry, there is no other way to put it. I am reminded of Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt, both of whom used the power of the federal government to intimidate and even crush legitimate, law-abiding businesses for failing to abide by their political demands. This is a disgrace, and we should all object to it. It concerns me to no end that there are putative Republicans and conservatives who rally around such un-American and destructive strong-arm tactics. And the fact that it is declared by...

    Only hours after he learned his only daughter was dead, Ed Shoener sat down to write her obituary. It felt like one way he could still take care of his little girl. He and his wife, Ruth, had been steeling themselves for this day since Katie’s first hospitalization more than 11 years ago. He knew immediately why the police were at his doorstep the night of Aug. 3. Yet nothing prepares a parent for the details about how their child ended her life. But if Shoener, a deacon at his Catholic church, learned anything watching his daughter’s long struggle with...

    Hillary's frequent outbursts and a willingness to violently confront her husband left Secret Service agents and White House staff on edge, writes Gary Byrne, a Clinton-era Secret Service officer, in his forthcoming book, “Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses his Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate.” Byrne, a veteran of the military and federal law enforcement, said he was posted near the Oval Office during Bill Clinton's presidency, affording the agent a firsthand look at Hillary, who he says is too “erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent” to become president. “What I saw in...

    Hillary Clinton has a “Jekyll and Hyde” personality that left White House staffers scared stiff of her explosive — and even physical — outbursts, an ex-Secret Service officer claims in a scathing new tell-all. Gary Byrne, who was posted outside the Oval Office when Bill Clinton was president, portrays Hillary as too “erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent” to become leader of the free world, according to advance promotional materials exclusively obtained by Page Six. The allegations from Byrne, a 29-year veteran of the military and federal law enforcement, threaten to derail her campaign days before she is expected to clinch...

Ted Cruz (R-TX), our country and the Nevada caucus.” “I would like to ask you to join me and my family Monday in a fast for Ted Cruz, our country and the Nevada caucus,” Beck wrote on his Facebook page after the South Carolina election results showed a decisive double-digit victory for Trump, whose candidacy Beck has been staunchly opposed to.

    The day after accusing Ted Cruz of winning the Iowa caucuses unfairly and asking for a rematch in the state, Donald Trump says he's now over it. "I'm so much into this, into New Hampshire, that I just — I don't care about that anymore," Trump said in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper in Manchester, just five days out from next Tuesday's primary contest here. "This is the place I'm focused on now." These comments, made at Theo's, a popular local pizza joint that serves up specialty Italian and Greek dishes, were in stark contrast to a tirade of...

    I have had more than one medical professional warn me that Donald Trump is a pathological narcissistic sociopath. I do not say that lightly nor to smear him. Look the terms up and talk to psychiatric professionals. A few have already written about this and spoken out. While, I want to be clear as do they, no one can officially diagnosis this with out private sessions, I have had more than one professional have laugh at me when I suggested in Trumps defense that maybe he “wasn’t a sociopath”. I warn you with as much conviction as I warned in...
