It is a slow news day today, so we will talk about NASCAR. It has no relevance and won’t affect your daily life, but this is what happens when we have 24/7 news. It is all about keeping up the hype and anger.
We aren’t going to talk about the Ministry of Truth. It’s this censorship machine that the Biden administration has built. Melissa Fleming, the U.N.’s under-secretary-general for Global Communications, declared that “we own the science.”She was speaking during a World Economic Forum panel and was proud that the UN was sending out its own “influencers” to spread the narratives that the UN approves. Epoch Times has a documentary about it, but we aren’t going to discuss that.
Boston University created a COVID hybrid strain with an 80% mortality rate in mice. The university released a statement trying to defend its research.
“The Omicron S-bearing virus robustly escapes vaccine-induced humoral immunity, mainly due to mutations in the receptor-binding motif… while Omicron causes mild, non-fatal infection, the Omicron S-carrying virus inflicts severe disease with a mortality rate of 80 percent,” the preprint study said.
Hopefully, when the GOP takes complete control of the Hill, there will be a wave of subpoenas regarding this lethal gain of function research. But the Boston University study isn’t important; NASCAR is today’s big story.
Bubba Wallace was suspended for his actions during the Sunday race held in Las Vegas. Bubba Wallace was corned into the wall by Kyle Larson, and then Bubba Wallace retaliated. After the crash, Bubba went over to Kyle and caused a scene.
Wallace was suspended for one race after he crashed Kyle Larson at Lap 94 of the South Point 400 and proceeded to shove Larson, both violations of Sections 4.3.A and 4.4.C & E of the NASCAR Member Code of Conduct laid out in the NASCAR Rule Book. Rule 4.4.C lists “intentionally wrecking or spinning another vehicle, whether or not that vehicle is removed from Competition as a result” as one of five member actions that could result in a penalty…
“Our actions are really specific to what took place on the race track,” O’Donnell told host Dave Moody. “And when we look at how that incident occurred, in our minds, really a dangerous act. We thought that was intentional and put other competitors at risk. And as we look at the sport and where we are today and where we want to draw that line going forward, we thought that definitely crossed the line and that’s what we focused on in terms of making this call.”
Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR’s chief operating officer, goes on to say that NASCAR doesn’t take such actions lightly. So give credit where credit is due; NASCAR doesn’t play around and doesn’t care who you are when it comes to safety concerns.
NASCAR races can be dangerous. There have been 29 fatalities, the last being Dale Earnhardt in 2001. Let’s hope NASCAR doesn’t go weak in the knees when the race-baiting begins.
