ALBANY — Fox News host and TV judge Jeanine Pirro is heading to court herself after being ticketed for excessive speeding Sunday in upstate New York. State Police say Pirro was clocked driving 119 mph in a 65 mph zone when she was stopped by a trooper at about 1:15 p.m. Sunday afternoon in the Town of Nichols in Tioga County. A police source said she was driving a Cadillac. In a statement released by Fox News, Pirro said she was racing to see her sick mother in Elmira. “I had been driving for hours to visit my ailing 89-year-old

Comments:
Judge Jeanine say it ain´t so. I would be absolutely terrified to drive 119 mph. Even when passing in a 70 mph zone reaching 80 scared me. That was even before I was an old fart! You know the left will go wild. That moron Chris Hayes said this was worse than sneaking across the border. Really? Link below. He was consequently destroyed on Twitter. I´m glad I don´t belong to the Twitter universe. They´re all deranged.

Was the Judge trying to catch someone or was she running from someone ? I guess we will never know.

Of course after she pays the fine she will have paid for a part of it.

I imagine a Caddy is a pretty smooth ride, so not hard to go fast. I remember driving to Las Vegas once, when looked down at the speedo and it was just over 100 mph, and this was in our minivan. Yes, I did slow down (some).

I have a 2006 GTO with 400 horsepower and it BEEPS once at 85 mph and it BEEPS again at 115 mph but the speedometer goes to 200 mph so if there is a 3rd beep I don´t have the balls to find out.

What she did was easy to do in a fast car, and she was in a hurry to see her sick Mom.

So what?

Have you ever driven in a big city and seen the exodus out of there? People routinely driving around 85 or 90 all the time.

Pay the fine and move on....

I´m not sure it´s as simple as paying a fine. I read somewhere yesterday that going 35 mph over the speed limit (65) in NY has other consequences i.e., losing your license for one. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable can confirm or deny this.

Going that much over the limit in many states is criminal traffic. Carries a hefty fine, possible jail time and loss of license.

When I was young and lived in the middle of nowhere, WY, I drove a ´72 Plymouth Fury with a 400+ cu. in. 8 cylinder engine and man, could that car go fast!! I think that might have been a police car engine. Well, in the middle of nowhere with a smooth highway and no traffic, I regularly drove 90 mph. A couple of state highway patrolmen were able to catch up with me and when my insurance went up, I slowed down. Also started thinking about not wanting to cause an accident.

I understand the seductive power of speed, but 119mph is way too fast on any public road - life is unpredictable and we never now what is coming round the bend or over the hill.

I did 200 kmh on the Autobahn in a very nice Audi A6, and almost got killed. It was then at 120 mph that I realized I don´t have the reflexes (or training) for going faster. It´s not about "can" you do it, it´s about "should" you.

i like judge pirro very much, but honey and
the rest of speeders, it doesn´t hurt to glance down at your speedometer once in a while.
speed kills. that´s not just a motto, but its the truth. she is lucky she didn´t come in contact with another vehicle. i sentence judge pirro with 60 days, suspended, but with a very stiff fine. i´d rather see her on tv than read her name in the obits.

Depending on the road, traffic, weather conditions and the car - not really so fast.

I have cruised at 135 mph in Germany on roads not usually as quite as good as our typical interstate highway.

Not legal, and maybe not smart under certain conditions - but under the right conditions, I wouldn´t object. I have a car that is supposed to top at 166, but haven´t let it our fully, yet.

It does depend on driver training and experience, too.
I should mention that I have spent days in racing schools at Road Atlanta, Fontana Speedway and Circuit of the Americas with street Porsche, NASCAR stock cars and an F1 car. On the track - approached 200 a number of times. Never over 144 on the street, though, and mostly where legal in Germany.

The judge didn´t hurt anybody, did she? Maybe she likes to go fast.* So what are they gonna do? String her up? I think we´re getting overwrought over nada. Go Granny, go!

Cogito ergo zoom (David E. Davis, automotive journalist and enthusiast)

One must know when it´s safe to punch it--excessive closing speeds are significant causes of freeway crashes--but most of the interstate highway system is designed for (relatively safe) 100 mile per hour speeds. Very few modern cars won´t do 100 easily. (Some megabuck sleds will exceed 200. A handful will top 250, thats´s about 400 kilometers per hour, sports fans.) But to cruise at 100 they must be maintained properly. And the driver, though not a saint, must have some restraint. Or, ultimately, he ain´t.

I´d like to wind my (fairly potent Honda S2000) car completely out on a long level wide straightaway just once after a tune up and some precisely aligned new tires, but if I tried that in 99.9% of America I would get myself into a heap of trouble with the constable. Would be nice to go spend a couple of hours on the backcountry part of the Autobahn, but that´s just not in the cards. As Peter Green once sang, "Oh well." (Continued)

Late night about twenty years ago my best friend in a special edition AMG Mercedes blown V8 was pulled over on a desolate deserted stretch of interstate outside Nashville (I-840). When he reached 170 he heard an impressive roar from behind, and a Z06 Callaway Corvette driven by an oriental looking fellow buffeted his door handles at 180, accelerating to who know what speed. My friend was just trying to keep up. Naturally the cop pulled over my friend in the trailing car, the loser of the race.

Cop: "Why are you going so fast?" Bestie (obviously quite sober): "I like to go fast." The cop sat there for a moment and pondered what he was going to say, then started laughing. "You´re the most honest fellow I´ve pulled over this month. Here´s your license back. And slow down. Don´t let me catch you doing this again." The cop went back to his car guffawing.

The chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on Monday demanded U.S nuclear regulators explain how a Russian-owned mining company was able to ship American uranium outside the country using a third-party export license. Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said new information brought to light in a series of stories published by The Hill about Uranium One’s exports to Canada, Europe and Asia conflicts with assurances he was given years ago by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) that the mining firm’s uranium would stay inside the United States. “Recent reporting by The Hill uncovered that Uranium One was able to export

Donald Trump, according to his many critics, is the single most divisive, stupid, bigoted and unpopular president in American history.

Fusion GPS bills itself as a corporate research firm, but in many ways it operates with the secrecy of a spy agency. No sign marks its headquarters above a coffee shop in Northwest Washington. Its website consists of two sentences and an email address. Its client list is closely held. The small firm has been under intense public scrutiny for producing the 35-page document known as the Trump dossier. Senior executives summoned to testify before Congress in October invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, and the firm is resisting a congressional subpoena for bank records that would reveal who

The Supreme Court announced Monday that it was refusing to take up a case that could have expanded the prohibition on discrimination to include sexual orientation, declining to hear a case brought by a woman against her employer and leaving a legal jumble in place. Federal law doesn’t mention sexual orientation, but some appeals courts have read that language into the law anyway, while others have refused to take that step. That’s created a split where discriminating against gay or lesbian workers is illegal under federal law in some states, but not in others. The justices, without comment, declined to

CNN has quietly walked back more of their “bombshell” reporting on the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, and this time it’s a story relating to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ security clearance forms. In May, CNN reported that Sessions had failed to disclose meetings he had with the Russian ambassador when he was a senator. Justice Department officials told CNN that Sessions had not listed those meetings on a security clearance form, even though the form says to list “any contact” with the “foreign government” or its “representatives” in the past seven years. CNN framed the non-disclosures as more evidence of collusion between Russia and

Trump may get tax cut bill with more
generous credits for illegal immigrants

President Trump has been willing to accept almost anything to close the deal on his giant tax cut bill before Christmas, including staying mum about a measure that would allow illegal immigrants to pocket the more generous child tax credit included in the package. Illegal immigrants have been collecting the payoff from the “refundable” tax credit for years because of an IRS interpretation of how the rule was drafted. The Republican-controlled Congress this fall had a chance to correct that in the tax code overhaul that in the Senate version doubled the child tax credit to $2,000 and expanded eligibility.

Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most

The NFL protests have been lucrative for social justice charities — they´ll receive a whopping $89 million in "settlement" money, redirected from veterans and breast cancer charity funds — but they´re also becoming a boon for cash-strapped football fans. It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes. According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for

Sen. Richard Shelby says he wants a Republican elected to the Senate on Tuesday to represent Alabama, but that he didn’t vote for GOP candidate Roy Moore in the special election. The Alabama Republican said he’s already cast his ballot, and that he chose a write-in candidate. “I’d rather see the Republican win, but I’d rather see a Republican write-in. I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore. I didn’t vote for Roy Moore,” Shelby told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” Moore has been accused of pursuing sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s. In some

In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. (snip) Here is what McCaskill had to say about Kennedy´s behavior upon his death

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

The rules of interaction between women and men in the workplace have been changed with a suddenness that inevitably produces unforeseen negative consequences, no matter how positive and necessary the switch might be. (snip) With the stakes so high, given the presumption of female veracity and male culpability anytime an objection is raised, men are, frankly, terrified. Get used to it, ladies. That is the other side of the coin of the new normal. The old norms that men (often cluelessly) incorporated into their behavior now have been discarded, but we have no clear understanding of what should replace them. By

Several women who have accused US President Donald Trump of sexual assault and harassment were expected Monday to call on Congress to open an investigation. A press conference by the women will be hosted by Brave New Films, a media company that recently produced a clip detailing sexual harassment or assault claims by 16 women against Trump. A press release from Brave New Films on Sunday said the women would relate their accounts of Trump’s alleged “groping, fondling, forcibly kissing, humiliating, and harassing women.” The White House has dismissed all of the accusations as lies. During Trump’s presidential campaign, more than
