#CancelKimmel is trending on the Twitters… – So, it looks like late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel – who was actually funny when he co-hosted a game show with Ben Stein 20 years ago – is going to be the next career fatality to the social media cancel culture.
It turns out that Kimmel has dressed up in black face more often than Virginia Governor Ralph Northam did in college, and now a video of him using the “n-word” several times while impersonating Snoop Dog and black comedian George Wallace has gone viral. Honestly, it’s really pretty amazing it has taken this long for the cancel culture to catch up with Kimmel, given that he spent half a decade hosting something called “The Man Show” during which he spent an hour each weak objectifying women and looking up their skirts while they jumped on trampolines. But hey, that whole #MeToo deal wasn’t really about protecting women at all, as things have turned out.
But of course, being an un-funny critic of President Trump has its benefits, one of which is that your past sorry behavior doesn’t impact you – that is, until the video of you using the wrong word while imitating a hip-hop artist goes viral. Then you’re in trouble, at least for a little while.
The strange case of Bubba Wallace and the Noose. – Apparently, there are no security cameras at Talladega Raceway, which is passing strange in this age of technology. At least, that seems to be what you are expected to believe in the increasingly odd case of Bubba Wallace and the Noose.
Mind you, Bubba Wallace, a terrific champion NASCAR driver who happens to be the one and only African American on the circuit, never saw any noose. Supposedly, a member of Wallace’s team found it in an area that is restricted to only certified NASCAR personnel, and that also is where all of the incredibly expensive equipment is stored. That would imply high security, which must surely mean the presence of security cameras.
Yet, unlike seemingly every other crime committed in America today, no video of any suspects has been made public. In fact, FBI personnel who are normally extremely anxious to get their faces on TV with accompanying security video to display for the media are mysteriously quiet about the whole thing thus far. Two days down the road, we also don’t know the name of the Wallace team member who found the noose or any NASCAR official who says they saw it.
But who knows? Maybe this is the one incident during Christopher Wray’s tenure at the FBI in which the agents involved take the approach that solving the crime is more important than milking it for publicity.
In the meantime, NASCAR itself is milking the incident for all of the publicity possible, with every driver at Talladega engaging in a show of support for Wallace that, if this noose incident is real, was very moving and unifying.
We are one family.

Sad as this sounds, let’s hope it is a real incident, because if this turns out be some ham-fisted attempt by some idiot or group of idiots to burnish NASCAR’s cred with the woke crowd – similar to the whole Jussie Smollet situation – it will almost certainly come to light and would be incredibly tragic.
And now a word from your President… – At long last, President Trump appears to have grown weary of watching Democrat mayors and governors sit idly by while the American Taliban made up of Antifa and BLM tears down historical monuments. He issued these tweets as this piece was being compiled:
…..This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!

And now another word from your President… – This one appears to presage an effort by the Department of Justice to follow up on the government’s win in court on Saturday. In his decision on the Bolton case, Federal Judge Royce Lamberth noted that Bolton’s reckless disregard for national security by including highly-classified information in his book opens him and his publisher up to a government seizure of all proceeds derived from its sale:
Washed up Creepster John Bolton is a lowlife who should be in jail, money seized, for disseminating, for profit, highly Classified information. Remember what they did to the young submarine sailor, but did nothing to Crooked Hillary. I ended up pardoning him – It wasn’t fair!

And now a word from the most pathetic nitwit in America… – With the CHOP’s “Summer of Love” – as it was described a week ago by Seattle’s dim Mayor Jenny Durkin – very predictably devolving into violence and chaos, the Mayor who facilitated it all for the last month announced late Monday that she would finally, at long last do her job, but not before three people had been shot and one killed.
From a report at Fox News:
Seattle will move to end the police-free zone known as the “Capitol Hill Organized Protest,” or “CHOP,” after two recent shootings, one of which was deadly, Mayor Jenny Durkan announced Monday — signaling that a stunning chapter in the city’s history could be drawing to a close.
The mayor said the violence was distracting from changes sought by thousands of peaceful protesters seeking to address racial inequity and police brutality. Activists set up “CHOP” in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood about two weeks ago, barricading off the area after police evacuated a ransacked precinct building there.
“The cumulative impacts of the gatherings and protests and the nighttime atmosphere and violence has led to increasingly difficult circumstances for our businesses and residents,” Durkan said at a news conference. “The impacts have increased and the safety has decreased.”
That last sentence is just priceless, given that this despicable leftist Democrat knew from day 1 exactly how this would all go. Let’s remember that she literally facilitated everything that has happened in the CHOP by ordering her Chief of Police to stand down as the violent rioters seized the department’s 3rd Precinct station, which lies within the CHOP area. She allowed these violent radicals to illegally seize control of all private property within that zone, shutting down an array of businesses and preventing residents in the apartments and condos there from the peaceful use of their homes.’
When it comes time for the government to prosecute the leaders of this armed insurrection on U.S. soil, Durkin herself would be at the top of the list if we lived in a just society.
That is all.
