Life Lessons

A mouse found a jar filled with grain. With so much easily available food, he stopped searching elsewhere and eventually ate himself down to the bottom of the jar, where he found himself in a trap he could not escape.

One day, a farmer’s donkey fell down into a dry well. The farmer couldn’t figure out how to get the donkey out and eventually decided that, rather than let the poor creature die slowly, he would suffocate him with dirt. But after shoveling in a bunch of dirt, the farmer realized the donkey was just shaking the dirt off and stepping up. The farmer kept shoveling until the donkey was close enough to the top to jump out.

Another version of this story has the farmer deciding to lower food and water to the donkey while he tried to think of a way to get him out. Day by day, the donkey ate, pooped and stepped up until eventually it was close enough to the top to jump out.

CALIFORNIA: CLICK https://www.facebook.com/aklavan/videos/5015930738433699 [5:23] to see FOX News report about the LA County Sheriff’s plan to deal with the homeless crisis in Venice.

DEMEXIT: Even as elitist anti-Trump Republicans complain about the growing populist arm of the GOP, traditional liberal Democrats are joining our ranks. The formerly Democrat mayor of North Las Vegas appeared on Fox & Friends to explain why he has switched to the Republican Party.

The Democrats “had an election recently for leadership, and four of the five people were card-carrying members of the Socialist Party. It’s not the party that I grew up with 25 years ago in this environment, and it’s not the party I can stand with anymore… The working class, or working men and women of this country, and also the small business owners are not a part of the conversation anymore. It all has to do with the elitists and it has to do with the socialists. That is not the agenda that I have in mind for this country of the future. … So I found a new place that I can put my allegiance to and help … the new, populist Republican Party.

In February, former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright wrote an Op Ed for Daily Caller about why he switched. “For years, Democrats like me have watched with increasing alarm as our own political leaders and activists … have used an endless stream of hateful, violent and ultimately un-American rhetoric that has resulted in billions of dollars in economic damage and given birth to a violent national movement. … Where do we go, politically, now that our party can no longer be salvaged? The answer is to be found in the exit data from the 2020 election: We’re already leaving, it turns out, and joining the new, populist Republican Party.”

Victor Davis Hanson confirms that the parties have switched demographics. “Some 65% of the Americans making more than $500,000 a year are Democrats, and 74% of those who earn less than $100,000 a year are Republicans.”

FAKEBOOK: Judicial Watch announced this week that it received 75 pages of records from the Department of Veterans Affairs detailing the adverse reactions veterans had to the COVID-19 vaccines.

As of April 2021, Veteran’s Health Services reported 895 serious reactions which included: 20 cardiac arrests, 36 strokes, 15 cases of deep vein thrombosis, 10 heart attacks, and 19 pulmonary embolisms. They also reported over 26,000 less serious reactions.

In its usual fake-fact checky way, Fakebook posted this gem below the JW announcement: “Fact Check: VAERS Numbers Are NOT Proof 895 Veterans Were Killed Or Injured By COVID Vaccine — VAERS Tallies Unverified Reports.”

The JW report never even mentions VAERS.

HONEYMOON APPROVALS: FAUXTUS, who supposedly got more votes than any candidate in American history, has enjoyed massive support from the media. Yet somehow his honeymoon disapproval rating is second only to the man who suffered under 90+% negative media coverage and was threatened with impeachment before he had even taken office.

HYPOCRISY ON STEROIDS: The re-election campaign for congresswoman and squad member Cori Bush (D-MO) supports defunding the police. In the past three months, Bush has used roughly $70,000 to provide herself with private security. Her security expenses account for more than a third of her second quarter campaign expenditures.

INDEPENDENTS: David Winston at Roll Call notes that a majority of the country is not a part of either party’s base and they are becoming increasingly unhappy with FAUXTUS’ performance. Historically, independents aren’t happy when one party wins everything and then takes a hard ideological turn, which is exactly what the Democrats have done.

So, the next time you see the media and political partisans selling the idea that elections are “all about the base,” don’t buy it. Election Day 2022 will be Independents’ Day one more time.”

SHEP SMITH: For 23 years, he was the liberal voice on FOX News. Then, he left to go to CNBC where he’s failing miserably. Scott Whitlock at Newsbusters offers this simple explanation. “When he was at Fox, sounding liberal brought attention and praise. On a network like CNBC, he just sounds like everyone else.

TEXAS: Three of the Texas Democrats who fled to D.C. have tested positive for COVID-19. All three have been fully vaccinated.

Back home, Texas Republicans are using their unexpected free time to hammer the runaways for collecting paychecks while blocking passage of widely popular measures to lower property taxes, give teachers more money, increase protections for foster kids, and make elections more secure.

VACCINE HESITANCY: An MIT study found that those of us who oppose the jab are “highly informed, scientifically literate, and sophisticated in the use of data.” The study also found that “most vaccine skepticism, if by that we mean reluctance, is not based on conspiracy theorizing — it’s based on risk-benefit calculations.

The study also found that the pro-vax approach of calling us morons and murderers is backfiring. (No, really?!) “Proponents of the vaccine are unwilling or unable to understand the thinking of vaccine skeptics — or even admit that skeptics may be thinking at all. Their attempts to answer skepticism or understand it end up poisoned by condescension, and end up reinforcing it.

VAX: Dr. Robert Malone, a pioneer in the field of mRNA vaccines, shared a viral Twitter thread on Friday which lays out a disturbing trend; the most-vaccinated countries in the world are experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases that the least-vaccinated countries are not. There are many, many graphs at the link confirming this.
