Tuesday News Roundup: Durkin and the CHOP; Bubba and the Noose; and Kimmel and the Cancel Culture

#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.

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:

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:


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.

Why Does Anyone Watch The Oscars Anymore?

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Trump appeared at the Gridiron Dinner in Washington last night, and told a series of hilarious jokes that the audience, filled with about 90% humorless, hate-filled liberals from the fake news media, didn’t catch.  That’s ok, because the joke, as usual in this Administration, is on them.  Here are a couple of my favorites:

“As I’m sure you’ve seen, we’re now riding very high in the polls, which is hard to believe considering I never get any good press. But, I just hit 50 in the Rasmussen poll. A lot of people said I wouldn’t be able to do so well after losing my so-called chief strategist. But somehow, we’re still doing great without Omarosa.”

“You, The New York Times, are an icon. I’m a New York icon, you’re a New York icon. And the only difference is, I still own my buildings.”

And finally, “It might be hard for you to believe, but I do love gatherings like these. They give you a chance to socialize with members of the opposition party, it’s very important. And it’s also great to see some Democrats here also.”

Everyone there from CNN just kept looking at each other after each joke, saying “what does that mean?  I don’t get it.”  Exactly.

Speaking of gatherings filled with humorless, hate-filled liberals who want to destroy this country,The Academy Awards Ceremony is tonight, and the producers of the show, Michael DeLuca and Jennifer Todd, lied to USA Today on Saturday, telling the fake newspaper that host Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue will not be “pointedly political.”  Anyone who believes that, please shoot me a note, because I have got a hell of a deal for you on some real estate I can’t get rid of.

In all seriousness, why does anyone watch the Oscars anymore?  I mean, unless you are a part of the sexually abusive and depraved Hollywood community, or just some mindless progressive who actually identifies with fundamentally brain-dead, preening, self-absorbed nitwits in general, of course. Other than those people, who else wastes 3-4 hours of their time watching these people honor themselves?

If you’re a grown damn man, why watch?  Are you just a horndog who wants to see which young actress sporting a #MeToo or #TimesUp pin shows up wearing the least amount of clothes?  Are you truly interested in seeing whether or not some movie nobody saw called The Shape of Water beats out another movie nobody saw titled Call Me by Your Name?  Do you really give a damn whether or not Meryl Streep wins her 22nd Oscar, or whatever it is?

How about you ladies out there – why are you watching, given that the community honoring itself this evening has over the last 6 months been starkly revealed to ravenously hate every single one of you?  What possible entertainment value are you going to derive out of seeing a lifelong womanizer like Warren Beatty hand out the Best Picture Award?  Is it just to see whether or not he and Faye Dunaway can get it right and announce the movie that actually won this year?  And I know you aren’t tuning in to see what the guys are wearing, because guess what – they’re all wearing the same thing!  It’s a black tux – they’re all going to be wearing a black tux!  That’s what they all do.

Really and truly, folks, there are just so many better things to do with your time tonight.  As a public service, here is a list of just a few of those things:

– Give your cat’s litter box a good cleaning.  Mittens deserves better than what you’ve been giving him, trust me.

– Binge watch network TV’s best new show of the current season, Kevin Saves The World (We Think).  I’m not kidding, it is really hard to understand how such a charming, hilarious, grounded show made its way into the lineup of one of the three major networks.  If you haven’t been watching it, tonight’s a great time to start.

– Spend time with your kids, if you’re a parent, or with your grandkids if you, like me, are a grandparent.  It will do you some good.  Might even do them some good, too.

– If none of those options work for you, at 8:00 Central time, get onto iHeartRadio and tune into AM 740 KTRH in Houston, where you will find a little radio program that yours truly appears on every week called “In the Oil Patch.”  There won’t be any half-nekkid women or un-funny comics taking shots at President Trump, but you will learn something you didn’t know about energy, I promise.

Just another day in don’t watch the Oscars America.

That is all.

CNN Airs The Hillary And Harvey Show – Rampant Prevarication Ensues

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Exactly how misplaced are our Attorney General’s priorities?  Let me show you. – The Justice Department announced on Wednesday that the FBI was opening an investigation into the possibly illegal activities of…wait for it…wait for it…Harvey Weinstein!  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  So, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is perfectly capable of having the FBI investigate the sexual proclivities of a film producer, but he appears to be utterly incapable of investigating the possible illegal activities of Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, John Brennan or anyone else who served in the Obama Administration.  This guy is worthless.  What a waste.
  • In Other Harvey Weinstein news… – Hillary Clinton, in a predictably softball interview on CNN Wednesday, told fake journalist Fareed Zakaria that she was “sick” and “appalled” to hear about her “friend” Harvey Weinstein’s behavior towards women.  This is truly hard to believe.  The Clintons have been paling around with the big Hollywood muckety-muck for more than 20 years.  He’s held fundraisers for both of them, personally given to their campaigns, bundled hundreds of thousands of dollars to their campaigns, and given as much as a quarter million dollars to the Clinton Crime Family fake Foundation.
  • The thought that the Clintons had no idea about the true nature of their “friend” strains all credibility to the breaking point.  Mrs. Clinton, after all, is supposed to be just the smartest woman on earth according to her brain-dead sycophants.  Her claim to have known nothing is too ridiculous to even contemplate.  But of course, Zakaria just nodded his silly little head at his heroine’s answers and moved on to his next silly question, because he’s such a silly little man.
  • Hillary assured the audience that she would be donating Weinstein’s campaign “contributions” to various women’s charities, which is great.  She did not specify whether that means just the funds Weinstein personally contributed specifically to her various campaigns, or would include all the money he bundled together and raised for her at the various fundraisers he hosted for her.  Nor did she say anything about the big sum he tossed into her family’s fake foundation.  Unless some third party keeps pressure on her – which we know the fake news media will not do – it’s a safe bet she will donate the smallest sum possible, and whatever she does donate will go to various “causes” like Planned Parenthood and Emily’s List, which will just funnel the money right on over to the Democrat Party.  No one does money laundering like the Clintons.
  • At one point, Mrs. Clinton chuckled and claimed “I give 10% of my income to charity every year, after all…”.  As the National Review pointed out last year, the great bulk of Mrs. Clinton’s “charitable giving” goes to… wait for it…The Clinton Foundation and events associated with it!  Of course it does.
  • And if you think any of this Weinstein scandal is just Tiddly-Winks, know that the goons who run Twitter suspended actress Rose McGowan’s account Wednesday night.  This action was taken at the behest of someone, because the Twitter goons don’t just go around suspending accounts absent a complaint.  McGowan had been using her account to “out” people, like Ben Affleck, who she believes (most likely knows) have been lying in their public statements about what they knew about Weinstein before the NYTimes published its story about him last week.  In taking this action, which she began before Weinstein lost his power, she has distinguished herself as pretty much the only admirable character in this particular Hollywood production.  So naturally, the Twitter goons went after her.  Somebody with a lot of influence is very, very worried about what Ms. McGowan might say about them.  You seriously can’t make this stuff up.
  • “America’s conscience” has got some ‘splainin’ to do – Some enterprising person unearthed a video of talk show host and bad comic Jimmy Kimmel – who one idiot opinion writer dubbed “America’s conscience” early this week – doing a ‘man on the street’ routine in which he has something stuffed in the crotch of his pants and asks girls passing by to alternately grab it or “put your mouth on it” to see if they can tell what it is.  For those who do not know, Mr. Kimmel was years ago a host of something called “The Man Show”, a program in which the humiliation of young women was a nightly occurrence.  I’m not sure America really needs that as its “conscience.”
  • Meanwhile, Napa and Sonoma Valleys are burning up, 21 people are dead, and everybody – including me, sadly – is talking about the wretched Harvey Weinstein.  God bless the souls of those who have perished, and those brave first responders who are working around the clock to contain the fires, and God help the hundreds who are still missing.  What a terrible tragedy this is.

Just another day in scandal-plagued America.

That is all.

Weinstein Will Be Back Winning Awards Within A Year

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Prediction time – Serial woman abuser and all-around big Hollywood muckety-muck Harvey Weinstein will enter himself into some sort of sex pervert “rehab” program, come out of it within 90 days “fully cured”, and within a year be given some sort of “courage” award by Meryl Streep at one of the 12 dozen or so annual Hollywood awards programs.  Nothing is too absurd or depraved for these people.
  • Hollywood lawyer Lisa Bloom, who spent four days making up excuses for Weinstein’s 25 year reign of terror, abruptly announced on Saturday that she would no longer be representing the clown.  It seems that even Ms. Bloom, the daughter of the completely ethics-devoid, attention-seeking hack Gloria Allred, could not stomach inventing fake talking points for this guy.
  • Wait.  Lanny Davis has a “line”? – But wait, it gets even better:  Even the shameless political hack Lanny Davis announced on Saturday that he was pulling out of Weinstein’s team of advisers.  Lanny Davis has spent the last 25 years making up fake talking points for Bill and Hillary Clinton, folks.  This guy had no problem whatsoever making up fake talking points slandering Bill Clinton’s many female victims, had zero issue with lying about Bill and Hill’s illegal use of the FBI files of more than 1,000 of their political enemies, had no worry at all about prevaricating in defense of Hillary’s illegal email server.  But making up lies for Harvey Weinstein, well, that just crosses Lanny Davis’s line.  You just can’t make this stuff up.
  • We’ve heard a lot over the last four days about how “powerful” Weinstein is, but here’s the truth about that:  Harvey Weinstein has always only been “powerful” to those who want something from him, either professionally or politically.  Everyone in Hollywood and the Democrat Party was willing, for more than a quarter of a century, to simply look the other way and ignore his personal behavior because they all wanted something from him.  And everyone in Hollywood – other than Ashley Judd, whose career is basically over anyway – is remaining silent on the matter because they all still hope they might get something from Weinstein in the future, after he gets “cured” and makes his big comeback.  These people are disgusting, and normal Americans should stop supporting what they do with our money.
  • Speaking of disgusting people normal Americans should stop supporting with our money… – A new Winston Group survey released on Saturday indicates that the National Football League has, in the span of less than three months, fallen from the most popular major sport in the United States to the least favorite, falling behind both Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association.  Of course, this poll comes before the beginning of the NBA season, and there is no telling what sorts of spectacles we are go see from players in that sport – and from San Antonio Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich – during the playing of the national anthem this fall.  But at least for now, the NFL has become the sport non-grata for the average American.  Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of people.
  • And here’s a group of disgusting people normal Americans have already stopped supporting. – If you have wondered why Donald Trump’s public approval rating has steadily moved upwards over the past couple of months despite the withering nightly assault on his character from the networks’ current silly group of late-night talk show hosts, wonder no more.  It’s because nobody actually watches this silly group of late night talk show hosts anymore.  The Washington Examiner points out that taken all together, the shows starring Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert were watched by an average of barely 8 million viewers last week.  Just a few years ago, Jay Leno by himself was averaging more than 6 million viewers each night, with David Letterman trailing very closely behind.
  • One would think that sooner or later someone at these networks might wake up and think, hey, maybe it’s not such a great idea to intentionally insult half of our potential audience every night, because those people buy all the junk our advertisers sell, too.  But the evidence at hand indicates that light bulb moment won’t be happening anytime soon.

Just another day in ordinary people voting with their pocketbooks and remote controls America.

Hey, Remember When The Lefties Told Us That Silence Is Consent? Yeah…good times.

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Lessee here…more than 48 hours after the NY Times revelatory piece about Harvey Weinstein’s quarter century of abusing women, and not one word from one of his biggest political beneficiaries, Hillary Rodham Clinton.  I’m old enough to remember when The Most Corrupt Woman In America went around telling us that women who are abused by men have the right to be believed.  That obviously did not apply to women abused by her own husband, and it apparently doesn’t apply when the man in question is a big campaign donor and huge contributor to the Democratic Party.  Who could have ever guessed that would be the case?
  • Not one word from Michelle or Barack Obama, either, even though the internet is filled with photos of both of them paling around with Weinstein over the years.  Weinstein held multiple fundraisers for the former President, gave him many thousands of dollars.  In fact, the Obamas thought so highly of this predator that they even allowed their oldest daughter to work for him one recent summer.  Let that sink in.
  • Speaking of the DNC, the scumbags who run that disgrace of an organization announced yesterday that they would be giving much of the more than $300,000 they have received from Weinstein while he was abusing women to …wait for it…Emily’s List!  Yes, Emily’s List, which is nothing more than a Democrat slush fund support organization.  Out in the real world, we call this money laundering.  Next, it’s probably a safe bet we will see the DNC announce it is giving a big chunk of money to Planned Parenthood, so PP can just give it right back in the form of political contributions.  The sleaze just oozes out of these people’s pores.
  • Several of the Democrat-only senators to whom Weinstein has so generously targeted his hush money over the years joined Patrick Leahy in announcing they would be contributing their ill-gotten gains to “women’s” organizations, too.  Presumably, this money will go to “women’s” organizations like Emily’s List and PP, so the senators can all be sure they will get the money right back.  These execrable excuses for human beings include Chuck Schumer, Kamala Harris, valor thief Richard Blumenthal, Cory Booker and Martin Heinrich.
  • If you’re wondering why I’m listing the names of these senators for you, it is because what Weinstein was doing to women was open knowledge in Hollywood and among the Democrat political set.  I think it is very important for us all to know that all of these sleazy politicians who claim to be supporters of women’s rights took money from Weinstein and allowed him to hold fundraisers for them very likely in the full knowledge that he was a predator.
  • But hey, as sleazy as these Democrat politicians are, at least some of them are acknowledging the NY Times’ story and taking some action.  The same cannot be said of the cowards who infest the Hollywood film industry, all of whom appear to cower in fear of the Weinstein empire.  Or, probably more accurately, all of whom still hope to get jobs or other wise benefit from the Weinstein empire.
  • This should not surprise anyone.  Hollywood has always been a cesspit of human depravity, and given all the stories of rampant pedophilia infesting that culture in recent years, the Hollywood set no doubt views mere sexual harrassment with a sense of relief.
  • Even the late night talk show hosts who want their viewers to think they are so brave in pounding on President Trump and those evil Republicans in congress have  been mute about Weinstein.  No tears from Jimmy Kimmel for the plight of the many women whom Weinstein abused.  No Hitler references or salutes for Weinstein from Stephen Colbert.  No staff-written letters of sympathy displays from Jimmy Fallon.  Nothing but silence, and thus consent, from any of these creeps.
  • Because silence is consent in situations like this, or at least that’s what our country’s liberals and progressives have spent the last 40 years telling us.  Weinstein’s behavior towards women was an open secret – everyone knew about it, and everyone who hoped to benefit professionally or politically from his massive wealth and power stayed silent about it.  But like everything else progressives and liberals demand from the rest of us in terms of human behavior, they feel no need to apply this behavior to themselves.
  • Weinstein was “suspended” by his own company on Friday so that officials there – all of whose livelihoods depend on Weinstein’s survival – can conduct an internal “investigation”.  Everyone should understand that the “investigation” will be conducted by people who have all along known what Weinstein was doing to women.  Because everyone in Hollywood knew, and no one said anything.

Just another day in silence is consent America.

That is all.

Jimmy Kimmel: The Left’s Perfect Spokesman

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

  • Jimmy Kimmel is the perfect spokesman for the American Left.  He personifies everything the Left has become over the last 25 years, since the advent of Clintonian/Alinsky dominance of the Democrat Party:  Entitled, snarky, mean, haughty, and above all else, studiously ignorant.
  • The tactics he deploys from his late night pulpit are the tactics Clintonian Democrats have deployed from their political pulpits for a quarter of a century.  You begin with a set of talking points prepared by someone else, but which you memorize and recite as if they were gospel handed down from God himself.  In Kimmel’s case, the talking points were handed down by Chuck Schumer, more a minion of Satan than a god, but hey, the principle is the same.
  • Kimmel’s talking points are pretty simple:  Obama, good.  Obamacare, good.  Republicans, bad.  Anything Republicans want to to with Obamacare, bad.  That’s the sum total of what Kimmel “knows” about the debate over what to do about the collapsing Obamacare system, which has quintupled medical premiums in many areas and thrown millions of Americans off of healthcare insurance entirely.  Kimmel sees none of this, because none of this is in the talking points he’s been fed by Schumer.  Kimmel is abjectly ignorant, and he clings to his ignorance like Linus clings to his security blanket.
  • Every set of leftist talking points comes with the  standard set of leftist tactics, and those tactics always – ALWAYS – follow the same exact progression:  First you start with a sob story, and to his credit, Kimmel and his beautiful little son have a great, very real sob story to relate.  Second comes the name calling, and boy is Kimmel, a veteran comic, good at the name calling.  Next comes the threats, and Kimmel is as good with the threats as he is at the name calling.  Finally, when the left still hasn’t gotten everything it wants, comes the violence, as we have seen the past few years with Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the armed and violent wing of the Democrat Party.  Kimmel hasn’t gotten around to the violence part yet, but we can be sure he will next time he runs into Brian Kilmeade.
  • As mentioned above, the sob story is real:  Kimmel does have a precious little boy who has a heart condition which has already required one surgery and will, according to Kimmel, require two more.  This is awful, and everyone should be praying for the child’s full recovery.  Luckily for the child, he is the son of a fabulously wealthy member of the top 1% of the 1%, so he will receive the finest healthcare available in America, which is also the finest available in the world.  Kimmel wants his viewers to believe that the only reason his son will receive such fine healthcare is thanks to the demi-god Obama and Obamacare, which of course is an outright lie.  But lying is what leftwingers like Kimmel do.
  • Anyone who argues with Kimmel on this subject and points out his lies immediately becomes the target of nationally-televised name-calling.  If you disagree with Kimmel, suddenly you are evil, a sexist, a racist, and any other -ist he can attach to what his script-writers consider these days to be a “joke”.   One Louisiana Congressman even became an “inbred” in Kimmel’s Thursday rampage, er, ‘monologue’.  It’s all very predictable, yet very sad coming as it does from a comic who at one time was actually a very funny guy who understood what his show was supposed to be about.
  • Then come the threats.  For leftist politicians, the threats come in the form of taxes, penalties or imprisonment on whatever behaviors they don’t approve of but can’t solve through name-calling.  For Jimmy Kimmel, the threats come in the old-fashioned form of threatening to beat someone up when they call out his rank hypocrisy and lying on their own television program.  Thus, his threat to physically assault Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade next time he runs into him.
  • The final step for any good leftist is, of course, outright violence whenever they can’t get their way through the peaceful, constitutional process.  Kimmel hasn’t gotten there yet – perhaps only because he hasn’t run into Kilmeade – but can anyone doubt that, should the Republicans cobble together 50 votes in the senate to pass the Graham/Cassidy bill, he will use his late night pulpit to urge his viewers to take that route?  Given his down-the-line mindlessly leftist behavior to this point, it seems almost inevitable.
  • Unlike the detestable Stephen Colbert, who actually understands a lot about politics and just chooses consciously to act the idiot in order to attract an audience, Kimmel is not someone to be condemned, but pitied.  Through a highly emotional life experience, he has allowed himself to fall out of the only role he really knows anything about, and be co-opted by evil leftwingers like Chuck Schumer to act as their stooge.  It’s like the modern-day Wizard of Oz – no need to worry about the image you see projected on your screen, it’s the man behind the curtain who is the real villain.

Just another day in evil leftists America.

That is all.
