NASCAR Really Needs to Come up With a Better Hoax Narrative

But this one’s for really real, y’all. Promise. – Just hours after the FBI verified that the story about a “noose” being found in Bubba Wallace’s garage at the Talladega Superspeedway was just another hoax, officials at the Sonoma Raceway, another NASCAR track in California, let it be known that they are going down the exact same road again. I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

From a tiresome story at The Hill:

Authorities in California are investigating after another noose was reportedly found at a NASCAR race track, this time Sonoma Raceway.

According to the track, a member of the raceway’s staff found the noose hanging from a tree Saturday morning.

“If this is what it appears to be, it is distressing and disgusting, and it has no place in the sport,” Steve Page, Sonoma Raceway’s president and general manager told the Sonoma Index-Tribune.

“Someone had taken the time to tie it into a noose,” he added. “We think it is what it appears to be.”

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office is handling the case as a possible hate crime, a spokeswoman for the office said in a statement.

[End]

If anything, this ridiculous story sounds even more like a hoax than the Talladega fairy tale, which turned out to be a case of a clear fraud in which the garage door pulls on the storage garages had been tied into loops so workers can get handholds on them. The one on Wallace’s garage had obviously been cut off with scissors and then “found” by some enterprising hoaxer.

In Sonoma, we don’t even have a logical tie Wallace, the only Black driver on the NASCAR circuit, so what would be the point? Plus, note that the Sonoma “noose” was supposedly “found” hanging in a tree outside the facility on Saturday, before any reports out of Talladega began circulating.

Investigation after what appears to be a noose found at Sonoma ...

So, what are we supposed to believe, that some redneck racist is spending all of his beer money feverishly flying coast to coast tying strings into “nooses” and planting them at NASCAR facilities? How dumb do these NASCAR people think we all are?

Ok, don’t answer that.

Back to the Bubba Wallace hoax: take a look at this statement from the FBI released last night:

In that first sentence, we see that the Talladega scam wasted the time and resources of no fewer than 15 FBI agents. FIFTEEN. For a garage tie that was nothing more than a knot for a handhold, Christopher Wray decided he had 15 agents with the time to spare to apparently go talk to everyone in the city of Lincoln, Alabama, where the raceway is located.

Given that pretty much any sentient being who has been paying attention to what has been going on in this country for the last four years pretty much knew this would all turn out to be a hoax within about 10 seconds of hearing the first reports about it, this case should have been sewn up by a single agent very quickly. The fact that the FBI has 15 people to allocate to something like this tells us all we need to know about how much money is being absolutely wasted by Wray and his bureau.

Can’t wait to see what Wray’s virtue-signaling head count will be out in Sonoma. After all, there is much fine wine in which to imbibe out there once the 2-minute “investigation” has been completed. Why, this one might require the presence of Wray himself, since he obviously has nothing better to do.

One final question about NASCAR and Talladega: Is it really possible that, in the year 2020, NASCAR and Talladega don’t have the financial wherewithal to install automatic door openers on its garages? How are these guys still having to pull those doors down with ropes? This was really the first question that came into my mind when I saw the photos.

In any event, NASCAR really does need to come up with a better hoax narrative. If other “nooses” have been planted in additional tracks around the country, they need to send someone out today to quietly remove them, because nobody is buying what they’re selling.

That is all.

Jussie Smollett and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez – Keeping Hoax Alive

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Hey, it worked for that other racist over in Virginia. – Virginia’s baby-killing racist governor Ralph Northam appears to have shown the way for leftwing nitwits caught doing bad things all over the nation, and Jussie Smollett’s been paying attention.

Basically, Gov. Blackface’s strategy has been to lie, deny and go about his business, a strategy copied by his Lt. Governor and Attorney General, all of whom have survived the media firestorm, such as it was, surrounding their bad acts, and continue to govern the once-great Commonwealth. Actors, even bad ones, are typically pretty good at observing and learning, and that’s what Smollett has obviously done.

After being arrested and arraigned and seeing Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson deliver one of the most epic press conferences in the city’s history at his expense Thursday morning, Smollett was right back on the set of his TV show, “Empire”, a few hours later, filming new scenes and lying and denying his role in blatant hoax he has perpetrated on our country.

“I wanted to say I’m sorry and, you know me, I would never do this to any of you, you are my family,” he reportedly told the cast and crew, “I swear to God, I did not do this.” Hooboy. So, the strategy adopted by Gov. Blackface is now being mainstreamed, and the Chicago PD, with its long, sordid history of corruption, had better hope its officers dotted every “i” and crossed every “t” in the conduct of their investigation.

Because here’s the deal on this, folks: The fake news media and Democrat Party hate the fact that they have been forced to report negative things about a guy they spent 2 solid weeks building up into some sort of modern-day civil rights hero. Jussie’s story fit their preferred narrative about President Trump and his supporters, and now they’ve been forced off that narrative, something they can’t happily abide.

If they find the slightest excuse to hang their hat on here in terms of some irregularity about how the Chicago PD went about its business, they will latch onto it and pound it into the public’s consciousness until Smollet has not only been set free but gotten the raise that apparently motivated him to plan and commit the hoax to begin with.

As impressive as Superintendent Johnson was in his press conference yesterday, history tells us that the chances the Chicago PD conducted itself strictly by the book in this case seem disturbingly slim. This story, and the fake news media’s treatment of it, isn’t over yet. Indeed, unlike the Northam case – which they’ve all dropped like a hot potato because there ain’t no way to get that atrocity back on the preferred narrative path – the media engagement on the Smollett case may be just beginning.

Green New Deal Update! – Professor at New York University – where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez allegedly received a college “education” – Ian Bremmer issued a tweet that caught my highly-trained eye yesterday:

Bremmer is probably a huge fan of the socialist fantasy that the Green New Deal and its plan to replace the miracle of air travel with the popular 19th century mode of transportation represents, and he no doubt thinks those numbers are somehow impressive. But they would only be impressive to someone who has no knowledge of the actual history of high-speed rail and how ridiculously expensive it is to build and operate.

We’ve already seen the example of California having to cancel most of Jerry Brown’s great high-speed rail boondoggle as the original $29 billion cost estimate climbed well north of $100 billion with no end in sight. Yet, despite that clear object lesson, AOC and her fellow socialist Democrats would have us believe that we can just slap down hundreds of thousands of miles of high speed rail all over our country and make those pesky airplanes obsolete as a result, and do it all in a span of a mere decade.

Look again at Bremmer’s numbers: If you do the math and add them up (something AOC is likely incapable of doing) you’ll see that they total to a little over 27,000 miles. Globally. Worldwide.

Oh.

Again, that number might seem impressive to someone who, like AOC, has no understanding of the history of high speed rail. It becomes less impressive when one understands that the first such rail line was completed and put into operation in …wait for it…1964, just after Lyndon Johnson became president.

That’s right: In 55 years, the entire world has laid just 27,000 miles of high speed rail. For those who are math-challenged, that comes out to right at a paltry 500 miles per year, and no, I did not leave out a zero.

Oh.

But it gets even less impressive than that. The first successful test of a “high speed” electric rail system took place in … are you sitting down? … 1903, when an electric rail car designed by Siemens & Halske crossed a speed of over 200 kmph. That’s right: The “high-speed” rail technology has been around for 116 years, and in all that time, across the entirety of Planet Earth, just 27,000 miles of such rail has been successfully completed, and 19,000 of those miles were built by the one of the most brutal and heinous communist regimes in world history.

Oh.

As unimpressive as all that history is, even less impressive is just how “fast” these high-speed rail trains are able to run. The fastest in the world, the “maglev train service began operating in 2004 with trains reaching a top speed of 431 km/h (268 mph), and remains the fastest high-speed service in the world.”

Oh.

That’s the fastest, mind you. The standard for “high-speed” rail is that “new lines in excess of 250 kilometres per hour (160 mph) and existing lines in excess of 200 kilometres per hour (120 mph) are widely considered to be high-speed.”

Oh.

Meanwhile, your standard airliner operates at speeds of 400-500 mph, double and triple the average “high-speed” rail system. Plus, unless you’re on Southwest or just had bad luck, most flights go straight from departure to your final destination with no stops, or no more than one. If you read the fine print of the “Green New Deal” you’ll see that the socialists’ plan is for the transportation system to be “accessible to all”, meaning those “high speed” trains are going to be stopping in every city, town, village and convenience store along the way.

Oh.

So, if AOC and her compatriots have their way, all those quick weekend jaunts to Vegas some of you have been taking will become week-long, tiresome journeys. All you Texas Aggie fans who love to fly out on Fridays to take in your football team’s Saturday games with South Carolina and Alabama, forget it. The nation’s tourism business will die a very quick and ugly death. No more Disney World. No more Broadway. No more fun, no more joy, because the first job of socialism is to do away with fun and joy, after all. Then it all goes downhill from there.

Oh.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s little walk through “high-speed” rail history, which will also become your future if AOC and the rest of the Democrat commies get their way.

That is all.
