Seattle has hired a former pimp to serve as a “street czar” who will help the city government communicate with racial justice activists and consult on available alternatives to traditional law enforcement.
Fox News reports that Seattle hired activist Andre Taylor, who is “open about his past as a pimp” to help city officials better understand racial justice issues before they become the subject of demonstrations, or worse, riots.
Taylor is no stranger to street violence. His brother, Che, was killed in a confrontation with Seattle police in 2016, and although he runs a non-profit designed to seek racial justice and improve policing, he was critical of the now-infamous “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest,” or “CHOP,” and joined with the father of a black teenager killed on the outskirts of CHOP to urge the city to take action and break up the protest, appearing with him on Fox News and in other televised interviews.
“Taylor has previously worked with the city, receiving $100,000 for his nonprofit to host panel discussions called ‘Conversation with the Streets’ in 2019,” according to Fox News.
During Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson remarked on how Democrats continue to lose the coronavirus pandemic a tool in their pursuit to gain political power.
Carlson pointed out the inconsistencies from policymakers in defining the virus and its remedies, which he said were being leveraged in an election season.
Transcript as follows:
CARLSON: Unfortunately, this is not a normal Labor Day. It hasn’t been a normal summer. In many places tonight, politicians still monitor and control the most intimate details of your life: where you eat, who you spend time with and where, how many relatives you can invite to your wedding. Whether or not you can hold your parents hands on their deathbeds. The pretext for these social controls is the coronavirus epidemic. We never thought it will go on this long.
Actress Jane Lynch, a vocal Democrat supporter, invoked ire on Twitter after she suggested a US Senate building should be named after the late Senator John McCain – a Republican anti-Trump icon.
The ‘Party Down’ star tweeted late on Monday that “as soon as the nightmare” of the Donald Trump presidency is over, “the Senate building” should be renamed after the politician who died in 2018 following a brain cancer diagnosis.
Lynch did not specify whether by “the Senate building” she meant a particular office building or the iconic United States Capitol as a whole. However, the mere suggestion turned out to have been enough to provoke an onslaught of online ridicule from both left-wingers and Trump supporters.
Together they tried to explain in excruciating detail why McCain does not deserve the honor. They called him a “warmonger,” a “racist,” and a “homophobe.” Personal attacks were also thrown in. Some even went after Lynch alleging she had shallow political convictions and calling her “a low-information liberal.”
EA Sports, the video game company that makes Madden football, announced the return of former NFL player Colin Kaepernick on Tuesday. In addition, despite having not playing for more than three years, the company ranked him higher than half the starting quarterbacks in the league.
Kaepernick was afforded a rating of 81, which is better than half the league’s current starting quarterbacks.
Only sixteen quarterbacks rate higher than Kaepernick in the Madden 21 ratings, according to a tweet by Dov Kleiman.
But Kaepernick hasn’t played a game professionally since the end of the 2017 season.

The View host Joy Behar fretted on Tuesday that President Trump could “pull off” an election win, and so she called for a “change” to the Electoral College “as soon as possible.”
“I’m worried that Trump could pull this off,” Behar said. “We see the polls and we see Biden is leading … but the Russian interference is alive and kicking. Facebook is continuing to leave all the lies on the pages. The Postal Service is being interfered with.”
“The Electoral College is an issue and a problem. In the history of the United States, there were four presidents who won without the popular vote because of the Electoral College,” Behar continued.
Behar then claimed that the Electoral College rather than the popular vote gives a “handful of states” the power to choose the president, when in fact the opposite is true.

When hundreds of BLM and Antifa extremists gathered outside the Seattle Police Officer’s Guild (SPOG) on Monday, they were met by a large group of cops who charged the agitators and made twenty-two arrests.
The “protesters,” who chanted, “I don’t see sh*t, I don’t know sh*t” and held signs reading, “All my heroes kill cops,” were armed with Molotov cocktails and used bear mace against officers.
Police on bicycles blasted “Save a Horse Ride (Ride A Cowboy)” by Big & Rich through loudspeakers as they charged the horde, which is ironic because John Rich is a staunch supporter of American law enforcement.
Video uploaded to SPDBlotter.com shows the moment a firebomb was flung at police, nearly hitting a pair of “protesters” in the process.
Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding made a surprise announcement late last week – abandoning the Democratic party after months of anti-police protests and civil unrest, and switching his party affiliation to Republican, according to 14 News.
Wedding made the announcement Thursday outside White Stallion Energy in Evansville, where Mayor Lloyd Winnecke and Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch were in attendance.
Sheriff Wedding says the switch is to make a statement against what is going on nationally with civil unrest and negative attitudes towards law enforcement. He admitted that this will likely ruffle some feathers, but believes his track record in working with both Democrat and Republican leaders in the county will allow him to maintain those relationships despite the switch.
After the announcement, Wedding told us he feels the Democratic Party has lost its way. – 14 News
Conference organization TedX says it has started referring to women as “womxn” in order to fight “prejudice” and “discrimination,” prompting a backlash on Twitter.
The group announced that it was planning to hold a TEDxLondonWomxn conference this coming Autumn, prompting one user to ask, “what is a womxn?”
“Why we’re using ‘womxn’…No, that’s not a typo: ‘womxn’ is a spelling of ‘women’ that’s more inclusive and progressive,” the organization responded.
“The term sheds light on the prejudice, discrimination, and institutional barriers womxn have faced, and explicitly includes non-cisgender women.”
