Sheila Jackson Lee Further Nullifies the Term “Racist”



The next time you are the genuine victim of racism and everyone yawns with disinterest when you complain, be sure to thank Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D) for the fact that no one gives a damn about racism any more.

United Airlines passenger Jean-Marie Simon claims that on December 18th her first class seat reservation for a flight from Houston to Washington D.C. was inexplicably cancelled and her seat given to Rep. Lee following Lee’s request for an upgrade.  According to Ms. Simon (see her Face Book post here) she watched as a flight attendant escorted Rep. Lee onto the plane ahead of “…uniformed military, toddlers, people with disabilities and Global Services passengers…,” unaware that her own reservation had been cancelled until she subsequently lined up to board.  When she handed the attendant her boarding pass they could find no record of her reservation, and she was ultimately given a seat in economy-plus, but she was none too pleased about not being seated in the seat that she had specifically reserved weeks ago.  Ms. Simon later had an opportunity to walk through the first class section, at which time she took a cell phone picture of Rep. Lee occupying the seat that Simon had reserved.  This got the attention of a flight attendant who sat down next to Simon after she was back in her seat and questioned her about whether or not she intended to “…be a problem.”

In its own statement United has claimed that it appears Ms. Simon cancelled the reservation herself on her phone app after being notified that the flight was delayed, a claim which Ms. Simon denies (United eventually gave Ms. Simon $500 for her inconvenience).  After the story hit the news Rep. Lee initially offered only the following statement:  “I asked for nothing exceptional or out of the ordinary and received nothing exceptional or out of the ordinary.”  Following an outpouring of anger, however, she posted a lengthy Face Book post of her own about the incident in which, as you may have guessed, she attributes Simon’s anger over the seat incident to racism.  Ho hum.

Apparently it isn’t possible that a woman trying to complete her journey home from Guatemala was understandably irritated that the seat she chose and reserved using thousands of her banked airline miles was suddenly given to someone else, and that someone else just happened to be a person who had clout with the airline.  Never mind that when she initially voiced her objections with United upon learning her ticket was cancelled Ms. Simon wasn’t even aware to whom her seat had been given.   No.  If a white person is upset because their reservation disappears and a black person with clout ends up taking their seat, this means they’re a racist.

I can’t say with certainty what happened with Ms. Simon’s reservation, but I do know that when someone like Sheila Jackson Lee pulls the race card there’s always a reason and it has nothing whatsoever to do with race.  According to Ms. Simon, the congressman who was seated beside her in the seat she ultimately occupied told her that Rep. Lee has done this type of thing before.  If you read Ms. Lee’s FB post, you’ll notice that she is careful in her words, never claiming to have reserved that first class seat herself but only claiming to have a boarding pass.  I’ll let readers be the judge of who’s statement they can trust, but the point I’m making is that Sheila Jackson Lee is using the tired old race card for the sole purpose of taking people’s attention off what appears to be the use of her clout to steal someone else’s seat.   Anyone of reasonable intelligence understands that the consequence of feigning victimhood to satisfy other motives is that it makes good people indifferent and cynical to such claims.  Race-baiters like Rep. Lee know this as well as anyone else, but they just don’t seem to care.  If the real victims of racism end up ignored or assumed to be posers because the claim of racism has been so rampantly abused, it is of no consequence to them as long as their own personal objectives are attained.

By the way, I wonder what the race was of the United employee(s) who assisted Rep. Lee with her upgrade and escorted her onto the plane ahead of all the other passengers?  I wonder how it was that Ms. Simon, a 63-year old white woman, ended up being the person whose reservation was cancelled?  Not being a race-baiter myself, I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt that if there was mischief involved, it was not racially motivated.

Hilary Shor: This is Who the Left REALLY is



Liberals are the nicest, most non-bullying people.  That’s the reason they so despise Republicans, who are “mean-spirited” and “hateful,” as we are reminded on an almost daily basis (just in case the absence of any actual hate or mean-spiritedness causes people to forget what they’ve been programmed to believe).   As one who has long resented this charade it always gives me great pleasure to share the stories of liberals showing the world who they really are, thus I give you Hilary Shor.  Shor, apparently, is a movie producer who was vacationing in Cabo San Lucas with singer/actress Katherine McPhee when the two either accidentally (according to the story) or intentionally (according to my gut) crashed a wedding.  The bride, it seems, did not take kindly to the crashing of her special day and kicked them out.  Here’s how things went from there, according to this story at “Page Six:”

Shor posted their snarky commentary about the incident in a series of publicly available Instagram stories on her feed, calling the poor bride who denied them entry to her nuptials a “loser.”

 One video seen by Page Six and captioned “Bride Bitch” shows McPhee in her room snottily noting, “What bride does her own wedding security? If you’re doing your own security, you have a problem.”

 A second clip’s titled “dead bride #rude bride,” and a third’s called “loser bride bouncer” — in which Shor quips to McPhee off-camera, “She could have had a Page Six, New York Post [article] of us coming and dancing the night away . . . By the way, I was ready to rock ’n’ roll.”

 McPhee is shown in bed giggling and chiming in: “I was ready to show some serious moves.”  McPhee also says in a video on the vacation: “Hi everyone, it’s late-night shenanigans.”

 Shor also posted captions of their wedding crash fail: “That bride voted for Trump I can feel it,” and “Rise above the rude bride. She should be so lucky to dance with me, I got moves.”


Yes, it’s hard to understand why this ungrateful bride wouldn’t want such gracious ladies crashing her wedding party.

The snarky Trump comment takes away any question as to which way Ms. Shor leans politically, so now the only question is this:

What kind of a woman thinks it’s okay to crash another woman’s wedding party and then gets so vicious when she isn’t allowed to?

Maybe since marriage means so little to liberals it wouldn’t occur to someone like Shor that this day and this party was special to that bride, and she wanted to share it with friends and family, not with arrogant strangers who feel entitled to crash other people’s special events.  Whatever her reasons, she doesn’t owe Shor or McPhee an explanation.  And how did this lovely leftist from the Party of Women treat a sister on her wedding day?  She used her high profile social media account to publically bully her, calling her “rude, bitch,” and “dead,” whatever that means.  Nice.   Move over Ashley Judd and Elizabeth Warren.  Here are some more “nasty women” for your club.

I have long made the case that liberals are merely children in adult bodies, and Ms. Shor is the living proof of it.  She acts like a spoiled brat who has no clue why she shouldn’t be allowed to crash a stranger’s wedding if she wants to amuse herself, even though both she and McPhee probably wouldn’t tolerate strangers crashing their weddings.

Maybe we should start a “#Me too” campaign for victims of liberal bullies.

Stayed tuned for the next episode of “This is Who the Left REALLY is…”

Sanctuary City D.A. Scolds Trump: “We are a Nation of Laws.”




You cannot make this stuff up.

In response to Donald Trump’s calling the acquittal of Kate Steinle’s killer “disgraceful,” the District Attorney for San Francisco proclaimed in a press conference:

“It’s important for the president of the U.S. to remember this is a nation of laws.  We respect the legal process even when the outcome is one that we may not be happy with.”

Does the dear district attorney need to be reminded of what city he’s standing in???  Should we ask Chevy Chase to come out of retirement from SNL and tap him on the shoulder and whisper, “San Francisco ignores federal laws on immigration.”  If that happened would the lightbulb even turn on???

Forgive my abuse of the question marks here but I sometimes cannot come to grips with how stupidly oblivious the leftists are to their own hypocrisy.

I feel sorry for the writers at The Onion.  In a world with people like George Gascon and cities like San Francisco reality and satire are indistinguishable.

On Roy Moore Question, Trump Hits a Homerun



If off-the-cuff remarks were described in baseball terms, it would be fair to say Donald Trump hits a lot of foul balls.  But today Trump hit a homerun as far as this conservative blogger is concerned when he gave this response to shouts from reporters about the Roy Moore allegations:  “We don’t want to have a liberal Democrat in Alabama.”

Here’s why I love it:  because it’s the truth.

How refreshing to hear someone on the political front forego the usual made-up excuses and half-truths and bluntly speak the truth about their reasons to stand behind a candidate.  Let’s cut the bull and go straight to the heart of this debate.  And the best part is that it gives voters something very serious and relevant to think about and base their decision on, because a candidate’s political ideology will have far greater consequence to their lives as citizens of this country than Roy Moore’s alleged attraction to teenage girls forty years ago.

“We don’t want to have a liberal Democrat in Alabama.”

Damn straight, President Trump.  We don’t want them in Texas either.

If Alabamans agree, let’s hope they send that message loud and clear at the ballot box.

Rose McGowan Burped



It wasn’t supposed to be this way.

Democrats and their enablers in the media and in Hollywood et al were not supposed to be caught up in the sexual harassment dragnet.  These were elite members of The Club and they were supposed to have immunity from their misdeeds.  That was the unspoken deal that first took root in the 60’s and 70’s when the Sexual Revolution emerged, coincidentally timed, mind you, with the women’s rights movement.  Leftist males, clever as they are, quickly realized that there was both a political and personal advantage to treating women as a special interest group and championing “the cause.”

When the movement got around to going after sexual harassers, it was all good to start with, because the targets were Republicans.  Club members feigned righteous indignation on behalf of the women who testified against Clarence Thomas and nearly derailed the conservative justice’s appointment to the Supreme Court (damn!…so close), as well as for the women who testified against Republican Senator Bob Packwood, who was successfully (Victory!) forced to resign his seat.  (Side note:  The leftwing Washington Post delayed publication of the Packwood allegations until after he was elected whereupon, following his resignation, his seat went to a Democrat in a special election.  Sound familiar anyone?).

The unspoken pact was put to the test during the Bill Clinton era, when the moment came where women had to choose between standing by their sisters in the fight against sexual harassment or siding with their benefactors who pulled the political strings in their favor.  We all know what happened there, don’t we?  And when it was tested again during the campaign of “bimbo”- suppressor Hillary Clinton, the pact was reaffirmed yet again.  Leftist males were starting to believe they were invincible, especially when psuedo “conservative” powerhouse Bill O’Reilly and Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes were both forced out at Fox News over sexual harassment allegations.

So what happened?  How did big donor Harvey Weinstein, media icons Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose, Senator Al Franken, celebrity Garrison Keiller, and other elite members of The Club suddenly get caught up in the sexual harassment trap even after paying their Club dues?  Watching them fall in quick succession I was reminded of the great children’s story, Yertle the Turtle, by Dr. Suess.  It tells the tale of a selfish, power-obsessed turtle, King Yertle, who forces his subject turtles to climb up upon each other’s backs so that he can sit on top and survey his self-designated kingdom.  As Yertle orders his thousands of turtles to climb on the stack, the bottom turtle – a powerless, inconsequential fellow named Mack – complains of his discomfort to no avail.  Finally, he decides enough is enough, and he does one simple thing that brings the whole turtle throne and the arrogant King Yertle crashing down:  he burps.



I’m not sure if it was Rose McGowan or someone else who finally burped, but whoever it was shook enough turtles out of their complacent silence to send a flurry of the Left’s elite club members crashing unceremoniously to the ground.   Why now?  Because the pact was starting to come apart.  Most of these women are younger and hence were not around when the pact was first formed.  They see no reason that they should trade their silence – and sacrifice their bodies – for political privileges that now seem to be the status quo, and this includes women not just in Hollywood but in the media and in the offices of elected officials as well, which is why the pact is fracturing.

That’s what I think happened, but as much as I am enjoying seeing members of The Club turn on their own, I think there are serious battles ahead with respect to the politics of sexual harassment.  The Left cannot be allowed to use their newly discovered principles on sexual harassment as a cover for past sins.  For the moment, however, as far as I am concerned Rose McGowan – or whoever it was that burped – is excused!
