What started as a night out between boyfriend and girlfriend ended in a near-death four hour beating, and a prison sentence not long enough for the woman who endured a brutal and wicked nightmare. Her name is Kelsie Skillen and her story needs to be shared to raise awareness for women who constantly date horrible guys who participate in domestic violence. It’s also a wake up call for every girl who’s been beat to get out of their dangerous relationships. Any men who know guys like this, you know what to do if someone lays a hand on your sister or friend, right?
It was a night out on the town and Kelsie Skillen and her then boyfriend James McCourt were on their way home. They arrived, probably took off their jackets, and likely began to settle in. It’s believed that McCourt wanted to smoke a cigarette, which was in his jacket pocket, but there was a problem. One thing was missing. It was McCourt’s jacket. It wasn’t there. It wasn’t anywhere to be found. It’s believed that Skillen accidentally left his jacket at a location they were previously at. This is where a possibly dreamy night turns into a monstrous nightmare.
McCourt lost it. He couldn’t have his smoke. He didn’t have his jacket. He lost his mind and then it happened. He hit her. He spit on her. He held her down with his knees and punched her the way Mike Tyson used to punch his weak opponents. Kelsie Skillen was beat up for four hours. McCourt was knocking her in and out of consciousness. He locked the doors, hid the keys, and she had no way to escape. By sheer survival mode she was able to get her hands on an iPad that barely had any battery power. She quickly called her mother, instead of 911, and her mother shortly arrived. The girl should’ve called police first, but she claims she panicked and called mom. It was her natural instinct I suppose, but it was good enough. The mother arrived at the door and pressed the buzzer. The womanizing woman beater took off and wanted to get out. The mom and daughter were safe.
Ms Skillen described screaming during the attack and banging on the floor in a desperate attempt to be heard by neighbours.
She added: “Eventually I realised the more I kept screaming the more he retaliated and attacked me, eventually I got to the point I stopped and he wasn’t getting the reaction he wanted.
“That was when he started pouring the water over me. I drifted in and out of consciousness during the incident so I didn’t realise it had been going on for so long.”
It turns out the violent McCourt was arrested, charged, and sentenced. He received about two years in prison and be supervised for many months after his release. He’ll also be forbidden to contact her for about five years. If he ever contacts her, then she better call the police immediately. None of this Lifetime movie nonsense where the girl goes back to the wife-beater because “yeah, I know he gave me two black eyes, but I love him” – no, no, NO!
Kelsie Skillen, 18, was subjected to a four-hour ordeal by James McCourt at their flat in Milton in Glasgow.
McCourt, 19, bit her on the body, repeatedly punched her on the head and threatened her.
He was sentenced to 21 months and will be supervised for eight months after release.
Is 21 months a long enough sentence for a man who viciously beat a woman like that? To make matters worse, he beat her that badly because of a jacket and pack of smokes? It would almost make sense if she was chasing him with one of those assault rifles with the chainsaw bayonet and trying to sever his penis, because at that point it’s self defense trying to save one’s manhood. But to flip out over little things? Was something brewing before this? Did he just find out she slept with his father? Even so, none of that would deserve a brutal beating like that. Was there any mental issues leading to this?
And what will we say about her if he calls her and she forgives him? That’s exactly the type of scenario that Lifetime movies are made from.
Men – we don’t need to be soy drinking liberals with fake mustaches who’ve not ever cut down a tree in our life, and we don’t need to be the biggest body builder in the gym – but we should be decent enough not to beat the living snot out of woman.
Talk trash to Rosie O’Donnell and Bernie Sanders on Twitter because it’s so easy? Sure. Beat up a girl because she left an unimportant item behind? No thanks.

BREAKING! Christmas Week Massacre Leaves 6 DEAD, 51 Wounded In U.S. – This Means WAR!
This month has been among the bloodiest on record, leaving 6 dead and an additional 51 victims were wounded in the brutal ambush in one week. As people in this area are trying to come to grips with the sudden attack, President Donald Trump will soon be addressing it, as he’s expected to make an announcement about the bloodbath that has never been said before.
While most people were looking forward to the weekend, Chicago thugs were preparing for a bloodbath knowing that nobody would stop them at their killing game that began on November 1 and continued through this past Friday. Officials in Chicago have overlooked the problems in their city for too long and it’s been at the cost of countless lives.
As Barack Obama’s former hometown, he didn’t seem to want to address it either and the rising murder rate is also a big part of his legacy having made excuses for criminals and empowered Black Lives Matter. Now that there is a real leader in charge, President Donald Trump isn’t letting murderous thugs get away with this killing spree at a rate of one fatality every hour and 45 minutes in the Windy City, according to stats provided by HeyJackass.com.
The respect for human life is completely absent in the tight gun-controlled city on both ends of the spectrum. Thugs pick their victims at random without concern for age, as was seen this weekend with the unprecedented violence. This lack of respect extends to local government which has done nothing to stop in and removed citizens’ right to defend themselves against it.
9News reports of a boy who lost his life today while trying to earn money to buy his family Christmas presents:
Brian Jasso and his stepfather were driving their newspaper route early Sunday morning when the assailants in another vehicle rear-ended them. The gunman, who witnesses told police was hanging out of the passenger side of the suspects’ car, then opened fire and wounded the teen in the head.
Riccio said that investigators suspect that the shooting of the paper boy may have been connected to another incident in the city that occurred about eight hours earlier in which two people were killed — a 25-year-old man and 21-year-old woman — and a third man was wounded. Police say that incident was a gang-related shooting.
In the gang-related shooting, detectives found 77 rifle casings at the scene of the crime, Riccio said. No arrests have been made in either shooting.
More than 630 people have been murdered in Chicago thus far in 2017, according to police. The nation’s third-largest city is on pace to record significantly fewer murders than it did last year when it tallied more than 760 murders, according to police records.
Still, the city is on pace to again record more murders than New York and Los Angeles combined in 2017. New York’s and Los Angeles’ combined population is about 12.5 million, while Chicago’s population is about 2.7 million.
President Trump has repeatedly criticized Chicago over the gun violence, and once again laid into the city during a speech last week at the FBI’s academy in Quantico, Va.
Chicago has become more of a war zone than a place to call home, where it’s not even safe to go outside without risking your life. Now Trump has come out announcing that Chicago cops need to be able to do their job, which would stop this crime spree “immediately.”
“President Donald Trump’s claim that a mystery police officer has a quick fix for Chicago’s violent crime problems continued to evolve Wednesday night, as the president claimed the unnamed cop told him ‘if they let us do our job we could stop it immediately,'” CBS reports.
“By being very much tougher than they are right now. They’re right now not tough.” Trump said in an August 2016 interview with Bill O’Reilly. “When I was in Chicago, I got to meet a couple of very top police. I said, ‘How do you stop this, how do you stop this? If you were put in charge… Do you think you could stop this?’ He said, ‘Mr. Trump, I’d be able to stop it in one week.’ And I believed him 100 percent.”
Almost as shocking as the overwhelming crime rate in the city, is the fact that in 90 percent of these cases, where victims were either injured or killed, not a single suspect has been charged, Allen B. West reported. Perhaps this statistic came out at the end of Barack Obama’s presidency, after allowing thugs to run free and excuse it as what disgruntled millennials do when suffering from poverty.
What’s interesting to note is that not a single one of these shootings this month involved a police officer, which is a big statistical change since Trump has been in office. Now, things could be getting a lot worse for these thugs and better for the city suffering under their wrath since our president has vowed to combat the gangster and thug issued that runs rampant in inner cities across the country. He’s one of the first to take a bold stance against it, proving he’s not afraid of these criminals, and it’s only a matter of time before he publicly addresses this issue again after his executive orders on the matter and sending ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) agents in to help.
Among his pile of important executive orders to get the country back on track, were three crucial ones targeting gangs, drugs, and crimes against cops. “According to CNBC, the executive orders will focus on ‘gang members, drug dealers, drug cartels & crimes against law enforcement officers’,” Bustle reported. “During Jeff Sessions’ formal ceremony after his confirmation, President Trump announced his plans for these three executive orders, which give more authority to law enforcement.”
“During his ceremony, Sessions said that the U.S. has ‘a crime problem’ that may be ‘a dangerous permanent trend’,” Bustle’s reports added. “In an effort to remedy this, Trump’s latest executive orders will specifically target what he views as the leading causes of crime: gang members, drug cartels and dealers, and those who commit crimes against cops.
If anyone is doing more for the black community and proving black lives matter than Barack Obama, it’s his successor, President Trump. Eighty-eight percent of the victims in Chicago are black and were all ignored while Obama was in office, pushing and supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. Trump will single-handedly save countless black lives by cracking down in these thugs who kill other people — many of whom are random and just in the wrong place at the wrong time in the war zone.
Trump Just Got The Last Laugh On San Francisco Illegal Alien Murder Suspect – Law and Order Has RETURNED!
A jury lets Kate Steinle’s killer off the hook by finding him not guilty of murder, but that wasn’t the end of the road when it came to the legal consequences he faced. Even though Jose Ines Garcia Zarate wasn’t found guilty of murder, there was still a chance that he would find himself behind bars. That’s because, according to a warrant issued by the U.S. District Court for the western district of Texas, Zarate was subject to supervised released beginning March 26th, 2015. That probation barred him from committing another crime and from possessing a firearm – terms he was obviously bound by when he killed Steinle in the sanctuary city San Francisco.
It was shocking that a jury couldn’t reach a consensus on a gun crime in San Francisco of all places. On the other hand, the defense tried to argue that Zarate’s gun discharged itself accidentally, and only those with the politics of someone in San Francisco could actually believe that’s possible.
Meanwhile, ICE also said that they had planned on deporting Zarate for the sixth time and it was unclear if that would conflict with implementing any legal consequences available. It looks like the latter will indeed happen and Zarate could be up the creek without an American paddle to save him.
According to Downtrend, on Wednesday, “a federal grand jury indicted him for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition, and for being an illegally present alien in possession of a firearm and ammunition. The indictments could result in a ten-year prison sentence.”
This came after the Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced it is charging Zarate with being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition and being an illegally present alien in possession of a firearm and ammunition. With President Donald Trump himself speaking out against the verdict from the San Francisco trial, it’s clear his administration has a vested interest in punishing Zarate – something the jury should’ve done first.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the grand jury’s indictment. While acquitted on murder charges, he’s now facing federal firearm charges.
“According to the indictment, on July 1, 2015, Garcia-Zarate, a citizen of Mexico who reportedly is 47 years old, possessed a semi-automatic pistol and multiple rounds of ammunition in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1) (felon in possession of a firearm) and 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(5) (unlawfully present alien in possession of a firearm),” a Justice Department statement reads.
“Garcia-Zarate currently is in state custody on other charges,” the statement adds. “If convicted of either violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g), Garcia-Zarate faces a maximum statutory penalty of 10 years in prison.”

Zarate will not go to jail for as long as he should be, or for the charge he should’ve been found guilty of, but some justice will be served. Don’t be fooled for a minute in thinking that Zarate would have seen prison time under another administration.
The next step in this ordeal is battling the cities who protect illegal immigrant criminals with sanctuary city status.

Breaking: Shameless Democrat Sentenced to 5 Years In Jail — Her Response Is Insane
It must be hard to be a member of the liberal media because the only scandal they can seem to promote is the bogus Russia story that still has not a single ounce of merit or collusion. It’s so bad that people are digging up Trump’s old bank account records from Germany, but still, nothing of substance involves Russia.
The floodgates have opened and Democrats in the media, the entertainment industry, and politics are drowning in sexual misconduct allegations and other crimes. Ironically, many of those accused have claimed to be “champions” of women’s causes.
And that’s not all. Just yesterday we learned that House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes has instructed his committee to cite the FBI in contempt of Congress after they withheld information regarding why Peter Strzok was suddenly removed from Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. As it turned out, three months ago Strzok had exchanged anti-Trump texts with a colleague. A bombshell exposing political bias in the Russia probe, but nobody in the media seemed to care.
That brings us to another Democrat in trouble who is actually facing very harsh consequences. While New Jersey’s Bob Menendez walked on his corruption charges, a fellow Democrat wasn’t so lucky. Brown faces hard a hard time jail and she’s getting it.
According to America’s News Hub, “Former Florida Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown was just sentenced to five years in prison and three years probation for mail, wire and tax fraud involving a sham charity. She supported a charity that was supposed to be gathering money for scholarships for poor students but actually was going to fill her pockets and those of her associates.”
Sounds familiar. Is that something she learned from the Clinton’s and their foundation? Remember when the Clinton Foundation shelled out $10 million for Chelsea’s wedding? The only flaw with this analogy is that I nearly forgot the Clinton’s are above the law.
According to the Washington Times: “She was convicted in May after two former aides accepted plea deals in return for testifying against her. She supposedly used the money for personal purposes like lavish parties and trips. She also purportedly lied about it on her tax returns. Her aide and another official made a plea deal and gave Brown up, testifying against her at her trial.”
One of the co-conspirators of Brown, Carla Wiley, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud based upon $800,000 in deposits she made to the foundation over four years.
Brown meanwhile blamed her former chief of staff Ronnie Simmons – which nobody bought, as Brown was convicted on 18 or 22 charges.
BREAKING: Sentences for ex-U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown and conspirators:
Brown – 5 years; 3 years of probation.
Ronnie Simmons (former chief of staff) – 4 years; 3 years probation.
Carla Wiley (started fake charity all three used as slush fund) – 1 year, 9 months; 3 years probation.

Brown’s response to all of this was insane. What does Democrat Corrine Brown blame for her misfortune? Like any good victim in 2017, she cried racism. “I’m a black woman with a mouth,” she said. The nation’s other twenty+ million black women haven’t yet had the same misfortune of acquiring nearly a million dollars – legally or illegally.
Brown could have easily avoided jail time if she had paid attention to this video:
It’s very sad that there’s a slim chance this case will convince Brown’s voter base to give another party a chance.
It is undeniable that when it comes to governing at the state and local level, Republicans do it best.
A study by the non-profit group Truth in Accounting looked at the public financing and debt burdens of all fifty states, which have a total of $1.5 trillion in long-term debt. Most of the debt is attributable to unfunded employee pensions and retiree health benefits. The overall conclusion of the study was that red states manage their finances a heck of a lot better than blue states. In this case, I’ll be using the terms “red states” and “blue states” to mean “states where Republicans/Democrats have control of the governorship and both legislative houses.”
- In Blue States, there is an average of $22,214 in unfunded debt. In the Red States, that taxpayer burden is only $1,473.
- In States where power is split, the average is $14,963
- The five best states, along with their “surplus” per taxpayer are: Alaska, +$38,200, North Dakota, +$24,000, Wyoming, +$20,500, Utah, +$4,600, Nebraska, +$2,600.
- The five worst states, along with their debt per taxpayer are New Jersey, -$67,200, Illinois, -$50,400, Connecticut, -$49,500 Kentucky, -$39,000 Massachusetts, -$32,900.
We’ve seen the consequences at the national level – with our former Democrat President accruing $10 trillion in debt.
Where does the Democrat party go from here?
