  • Commission on Judicial Conduct removes Judge Astacio from bench

    04/24/2018 1:45:14 PM PDT · 7 of 19
    Jim Scott to AbolishCSEU

    Asticao hasn’t heard a case in two years but still received her $175,000. salary, recently raised to $187,000 (almost $3,600 per week).

    Outrageous but, sadly, typical for taxpayer-funded ‘elites’ in every aspect of government. Big money, little work and only rarely, any accountability.

    This ex-judge pushed her privilege too far and forced the system to remove her.

    Good riddance.

  • A few words (wasted) about Tom Lehrer on his 90th birthday

    Jim Scott to Borges

    Thanks for the reminder of Tom Lehrer’s brilliant satire set to music. Glad to know he’s still with us.

    Anyone remember Tom’s Christmas Carol? I’ll bet you do.

    ‘On Christmas day you can’t get sore,
    your fellow man you must adore,
    the better to rob him all the more,
    the other three hundred and sixty four’.

  • 'Jingle Bells' Rooted in Racism, Boston University Professor Says (Who Knew?)

    This kind of inane act of seeing ‘racism’ everywhere in everything is what is turning off the white middle class to liberal Democrat rubbish.

    White folks who have never done any harm to or spoken derogatorily about black Americans are sick and tired of being told they are ‘inherently’ racist just for being born ‘white’ and that American history is nothing but a history of oppressive racism that white people should be ashamed of.

    Calls for ‘reparations’ usually follow and are studiously ignored by the 72% of white Americans that are expected to pay for it. Yeah. No.

  • Women in politics fear #MeToo moment will backfire — and they’ll be the ones punished

    Jim Scott to Brilliant

    I don’t blame men in positions of authority for being hyper-cautious when dealing with women in the workplace.

    Although some men will now prefer hiring more males than females out of a sense of distrust, simply using the Mike Pence ‘model’ of never allowing yourself to be alone with a woman not your wife, under any circumstances, should be enough to fend off any future bogus accusations of being ‘sexually inappropriate’.

    Still, it’s inevitable that some politicians will simply decline to hire female staffers in the future. A form of career self-preservation.

    Jim Scott to E. Pluribus Unum

    Thanks to voters fed up with the D.C. politicians such as Mitch McConnell, The political establishment’s ‘dirty politics’ tactics failed to stop Trump from winning the presidency and will fail to stop Judge Roy Moore from winning the Alabama senate race on December 12th.

  • ESPN Host Compares Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones To A Slave Owner

    Jim Scott to Enlightened1

    By Wilbon’s standard, every black employee of a business owned by a white person is ‘a slave’ on a ‘plantation’.

    This kind of inane racial hostility by well-paid blacks such as Wilbon and the multimillionaire NFL players ‘taking a knee’ to show their disrespect for the American flag, has grown tiresome.

    Wilbron’s complaint should be met with an offer by ESPN to Wilbon to vacate his position if he feels ‘oppressed’.

    This is ESPN being PC, like the NFL, as their business attenuates. Sad but also quite stupid.

  • Seven Dumbest Celebrity Reactions to Las Vegas Massacre

    10/07/2017 1:24:39 PM PDT · 11 of 21
    Jim Scott to Kaslin

    Most of the celebrity trash talk about gun owners and the NRA is narcissist celebs preening for their show biz friends to see who can be the most sanctimonious about the Second Amendment, the evils of the NRA and those scary guns they hate so much.

    This drivel, even as the same multimillionaire ‘celebrities’ have armed bodyguards to protect them from the ‘little people’ that helped make them rich and famous.

    Hypocrisy on stilts and eventually, for some, a career-killer - I hope.

  • Trump is right, Newsweek. Socialism doesn't work

    Jim Scott to Kaslin

    The media is riddled with True Believers in socialism/communism.

    President Trump’s blunt description of the utter failure of Socialism/Communism was a slap in the face to them so, of course, they try to cover their embarrassment with nonsensical ‘reporting’ based on the false premise that Trump was not sophisticated enough to appreciate statism.

    Just like Socialism/Communism, they failed.

  • BREAKING NEWS: Son of Fox News host Eric Bolling takes his own life one day after his father was

    Jim Scott to ColdOne

    Tragic is too tame of a word to describe this unnecessary death of 19 year old Eric Chase Bolling.

    Today, only the senior Eric Bolling knows if the allegations against him were factual - or a lie.

    That being the case, smug liberals sneering at Eric Bolling’s alleged sins are beyond despicable - yet quite predictable.

  • Mainstream Media Complain: Trump’s Condemnation of Charlottesville Racist Groups Not Good Enough

    08/14/2017 12:45:34 PM PDT · 8 of 36
    Jim Scott to Altura Ct.

    Let’s be serious. Nothing President Trump says will ever satisfy the leftmedia.

    The Charlottsville riot was a set-up and everyone has fallen for it. People protesting the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee and that had a permit to be there were set upon by bused-in ‘activists’ who attacked the legitimate protestors, who fought back.

    The media has it all wrapped up in a neat package for public consumption: white supremacists attacked little lambs such as the BLM crowd and killed an innocent woman...and Trump doesn’t condemn them forcefully enough, proving he’s on the side of violent racists.

    Total BS and frustrating to see even FNC buy into the con.

    The totalitarian instincts of the rabid left and their lust for the power to control and/or destroy is on full display in this Huffington Post article demonstrating not only the left’s true agenda but the frightening reality of of insane hatred that drives it.

  • Lou Dobbs: Speaker Paul Ryan Should Resign

    03/14/2017 12:56:26 PM PDT · 18 of 146
    Jim Scott to drewh

    I can respect Lou Dobbs.

    Paul Ryan, not so much.

    Of course Ryan should resign. How can the president expect to have any confidence in the Speaker after hearing this kind of disrespect, so typical of the RINO crowd who think they are too good for us.

    Ryan needs to go but I’ll believe it when I see it. He represents the RINO faction that is the majority of the GOP Representatives and, as ‘one of theirs’, they’ll continue to support him.

  • Tucker Carlson's Nightly Takedown of Lib: December 5th, 2016 Edition(video)

    Jim Scott to rktman

    Missed Tucker’s show but watched the video.

    The college kid can’t mount a cogent defense of his call for the removal of a college trustee that met with the President-elect (the horror!)

    Carlson gave him plenty of chances to say something coherent but the boy failed every time.

    His pitiful attempt at growing a mustache was distracting as I kept snickering.

    Scary to think these people will our future.

    She wants it both ways; ‘serious journalist’ and hottie. Neither are convincing. She’s an opportunist.

  • Poll: Republican Voters Ready To Stand by Trump Despite Lewd Comments Video

    Jim Scott to Biggirl

    The RINO contingent has never supported Trump and this 2005 incident, admittedly indefensible, is their excuse to abandon him and ‘demand’ he drop out of the presidential race. Fat chance.

    This is small ball stuff. Cringe-worthy, yes, but with absolutely no importance in electing a president in these troubled times.

    Hillary Clinton has violated many laws, lied incessantly, even to the families of the 4 dead Americans in the attack on the Benghazi facility in Libya. She is utterly corrupt, mendacious and bitter with a hardcore leftist ideology and a penchant for authoritarianism that should frighten voters.

    Trump talked dirty eleven years ago and has quite legally avoided paying some taxes. Yet, the leftmedia, Hillary Clinton and the RINO establishment want us to believe that he is ‘unfit’ to associate with decent people, much less, be president. They say this with a straight face, no less.

    No sale. Trump may well be a gamble but Hillary is a guaranteed disaster for our freedom and safety.

  • The Darkest Hour is Just Before The Don

    Jim Scott to detective

    Trump is no Reagan but he is what America needs right now.

    I have been posting on this and other sites that Trump will win big on election day. Not because he’s so charming or conservative but because the American people are fed up with the corruption in Washington and the arrogance of the political class toward average Americans. That definitely includes Republicans.

    The utterly corrupt Hillary Clinton is the very personification of political arrogance and disdain for taxpaying,law-abiding Americans who would be facing long prison terms had they committed the crimes for which she has been allowed to escape accountability.

    Yes, Trump will win big, possibly a landslide and although the media will try to destroy his presidency, they will fail as their credibility is gone thanks to their constant cheer-leading for leftist policies and politicians.

    Indeed, better days are coming to America.

  • Sen. Mitch McConnell Says He Wants To ‘Deny Terrorists Guns’ After Blocking Bill That Would Have

    Jim Scott to nevergore

    The media and Obama administration are using the Orlando massacre (perpetrated by a Muslim jihadist)to attenuate our Second Amendment rights. Counting on public revulsion at the mass murder to ease on more restrictions on firearm sales. The ‘automatic weapons’ canard needs to be countered with facts.

    As for Mitch McConnell, we know he is a RINO and ready to cave to Obama’s wishes. He has to go when Trump takes office.

    Fox News has never been the conservative bastion the left claims it to be. Fox News is ‘right of center’ with a few conservative commentators. This latest call (from Fox Contributor Gretchen Carlson) for more restrictions on the Second Amendment demonstrate that when push comes to shove, Fox News is willing to cede liberties in order to be politically correct.

  • High school wants to shut down off-campus 'Jesus Lunch'

    04/14/2016 12:40:29 PM PDT · 16 of 39
    Jim Scott to Obadiah

    Apparently freedom of speech and religion is a constitutional right unknown to the dopey school administrators.

    The ‘Jesus lunch’ is off-campus. The attempt by school administrators to overreach their authority and to label the lunch ‘divisive’ (those attending do so voluntarily) is a transparent attempt to stifle the Christian message being disseminated. I doubt anyone is fooled.

    This kind of too-typical attack on Christianity must be responded to firmly and the school administration apparatchiks reminded of their limits.
