Must be nice to be able to legally extort that kind of cash out of someone like that.
Roger Ailes’ secrets command a heavy price. Last week, the New York Times reported that Fox News had reached an out-of-court settlement with Brian Lewis, the former Roger Ailes aide who was abruptly fired in late July. A Fox News executive with knowledge of the negotiations told Gawker that Lewis was paid approximately $8 million in hush money.
“The big talk at work, especially today, is the settlement number,” the executive said on Friday, explaining that the exact figure had been filtering through the channel’s rank-and-file since early November.
The settlement came after an extraordinary, months-long confrontation during which Fox News accused Ailes’ former right-hand man of vague “financial irregularities,” and Lewis’ attorney angrily responded that Ailes had a lot to lose if Lewis ever spilled the beans on their 17-year-long partnership at the right-wing network.
Sometimes I think John Edwards was right; there are two Americas. The one America, where honest people like myself, could not get a break in the writing world, if I tried. Then, there is the America where shlubs like this guy here, who after being in an position of being trusted by a network; decides to tell what he knows and then makes out like a bandit.
I am not complaining, I could be in a much worse way than I am now. But, it sure does strike me as being asinine. Liberty and Justice for all? it’s more like bribery and extortion for those who decide to take money from the right people.
Some sad news to read about, Mr. Warmth is in recovery.
Don Rickles is on the mend.
After canceling several shows due to treatment for a leg infection, Page Six has learned the 87-year-old comedy legend was suffering from necrotizing fasciitis, better known as a flesh-eating disease.
Rickles underwent three surgical debridements — a removal of the infected tissue — and a skin graft, which forced him to stay off his feet for a while.
Fortunately, his rep tells us the condition was discovered quickly, Rickles was treated successfully and he’s well on the road to recovery.
“He has been rehabbing the leg, is back on his feet and is doing wonderfully,” the rep said. “He is looking forward to be back on the road after the first of the year.”
I love this man’s style of humor, he is one of the funniest comics out there. Here is his performance from President Ronald Reagan’s second inaugural ball, this my friends; is some seriously funny stuff:
I love that ending, the man is and will ALWAYS be a class act. Which, by the way, is lacking in Hollywood and show business today — and that, is class.
It is because of events like this here:
An Al Jazeera investigative reporter who worked on the network’s high-profile probe into Yasser Arafat’s death was fired last Monday after raising concerns about the objectivity of the network’s Arafat coverage.
Since 2012, Al Jazeera has aggressively promoted the controversial theory that Arafat was assassinated with polonium in 2004 and did not die of natural causes.
Investigative journalist Ken Silverstein, who joined Al Jazeera two months ago and co-wrote the network’s November scoop about a team of Swiss scientists that found unusual traces of polonium-210 in Arafat’s bone samples, was fired after he refused to travel to Paris to cover the pending release of a French laboratory study on Arafat’s bone samples, multiple sources familiar with the situation told the Washington Free Beacon.
The French findings, released the following day, ended up contradicting the assassination theory.
Silverstein declined to provide a comment to the Free Beacon. A spokesperson for Al Jazeera said she could not discuss personnel issues.
It is because Al Jazeera is not a legit news network. But rather an Islamic propaganda network.
As you might have read, David Duke, who is a defender of European Nationalism and American Nationalism — was tossed out of Italy for some very stupid reasons. Some would call him a bigot; mostly those on the intolerant left and of the Trotskyite right.
Anyhow, Because this blog is of the conviction that freedom of speech is not, nor should it ever be conditional —- with the exception of speech that promotes violence; I am presenting the podcast of David Duke’s, where he gives his side of the story.
I know all about the Trotskyite right, they have attacked me as well. Most of the so-called “conservative” right, and yes, that does include the blogosphere; is totally Trotskyite, and anyone who does not kiss the royal ring of the Zionists is slapped with the label of racist, bigot, and yes, even the infamous Anti-Semitic label.
Some would say that David Duke’s rhetoric is hateful. My question to you is this, is it anymore hateful that the Jewish rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh, who said that killing a Goyim or non-Jew and taking his liver is perfectly okay?
Here’s the podcast: (via Grizzom)
Again, I post this, not because I am 100% agreement with David Duke, because I am not much into all the conspiracy stuff and I think that the dogged pursuit of the Zionists is a bit of a fool’s errand. However, I happen to know that powerful interests control the political and financial; and yes, even Hollywood interests in this Country. Yes, most of them are Jewish.
They also hold very influential sway, when it comes to Congress and yes, even the President of the United States. I also happen to know, that the interests of these people are not of a pro-American sort. Most of them are anti-Christian, Anti-White, and very much opposed to any sort of true American freedom. Just look at the Movies that were produced in the 1940′s, 1950′s. They were different. Today’s movies are just not the same anymore. They are produced by multi-national companies that are not pro-american at all.
I pray that you would simply listen to this podcast and listen to what Duke is saying. Because if they are now coming after people, like David Duke; how long will it be, before the governments of the World start coming after Christians, Conservatives, or anyone else, who happens to disagree with these Trotskyite monsters? Answer: It is already happening in some Countries. We have to, as freedom loving Americans prevent that from happening here.
Amid the wave of grief over Nelson Mandela’s passing, and outpouring of fond memories about his inspiring deeds of greatness, came a harsh reminder from Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly: Let’s not forget he was a communist.
“He was a communist, this man,” Mr. O’Reilly said, during a Thursday night discussion with Rick Santorum about the fate of the Republican Party. The context for his comments about Mr. Mandela: He was trying to illustrate how the GOP could win more public favor for the next presidential election, Mediaite reported.
That’s when he blurted: “He was a communist, all right? But he was a great man. What he did for his people was stunning. … He was a great man, but he was a communist.”
I happened to have run across this story over at Ace’s blog. I really do not know what this woman was thinking; but man did she ever step into it!
The Story from one of the blogs over at Houston Press:
There are times when the good deeds that happen by the magic of the Internet make us quite giddy. This time? Well, this time they make us cringe, to the tune of $100,000.
If you haven’t read the “insightful” personal narrative that recently went viral, “Why I Make Terrible Decisions, or poverty thoughts,” there’s a good chance it’s somewhere on your Facebook news feed. This thing is everywhere.
The essay, which is being touted as a poignant look at the “terrible” decision-making processes of the poor, is the product of writer Linda Walther Tirado’s personal experience with poverty. Linda, a married mother of two, speaks of having to live in seedy motels, where there are roaches that she stabs with toothpicks. She can’t cook for her family because she lacks a kitchen, and she’s afraid of attracting more roaches, so they survive on junk food in said seedy motel.
Oh, and not only does Linda say she’s living in seedy motels and stabbing roaches, but she’s also working two jobs, taking a full load of college courses, and is banished to a life as a cook in the “back of the house” at a restaurant, as she is deemed too unsightly as a waitress — or apparently a legal secretary — due to an unfortunate set of teeth. She’s in desperate need of dental work, and her body is full of infection, but she can’t afford to spend the money on medical or dental care. It’s a tragic, tragic story.
It’s also tragically fictional.
There is more about it over at National Review and Mediaite; and boy does it ever get deep. The biggest and most important rule when it comes to the Internet, especially with charity, is to never, ever lie about anything at all. Because if you do, it will come out; one way or another. Stephen Glass did it, and he is still paying the price for it.
Not to toot my horn; but that is one thing that I have never done at all on this blog —— and that is lie about anything related to my personal situation here. Because I knew if I did, it would come back to haunt me. Now I will tell you this, I will share what I do truly have in my personal bank account:
In case you cannot see that, I have $73.70 in my personal checking account. I recently received a payment from infolinks.com, for about 2 years of running their ads here on my site. I was paid by Paypal. Anyway, that is my true situation here. However, because I am an honest man, I will tell you that I do live with my parents; and I do have a roof over my head and three square meals a day. Now, my parents have to foot my bill for medications, as I am diabetic, have high blood pressure and have ADHD. Plus, they pay for any and all doctor’s visits. So, it is not like I am on welfare or any other social program. Hey, at least I am honest about all of that. Heck, I could lie about everything here; but I am a bit more smarter than that. Again, anytime you lie about something like this woman did here; it always catches up with you.
I might be a bit of a jaded, opinionated old duffer; who’s bit of an eccentric. But, at least I am honest!
As the old saying goes, “Honesty is the best policy.” Too bad this woman did not follow that teaching.

Ugh… I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
The puke-worthy story:
Tokyo — One-of-a-kind Lady Gaga has been replicated.
The pop star unveiled life-size dolls in her likeness, dressed in her flamboyant costumes, at a Tokyo event Sunday. A person leaning against the silicon doll’s chest can hear Lady Gaga music and messages.
Gaga said she was honored to have replicas of herself.
Japanese industrial and design companies teamed with her record label to create the Gagadoll, inspired by her new “Artpop” album. They’re prototypes not yet available for sale.
At the news conference, Gaga made her grand entrance wearing a red plaid jumpsuit and wrapped in coils.
Gaga is participating in a charity auction to benefit the 2011 earthquake and tsunami victims. She’s hoping that one of the two Gaga-styled Hello Kitty dolls will raise a lot of money for the cause.
Why in the world would anyone want a life-size doll of some sexual deviant like this woman? It simply does not make any sense.
