BACK THE BLUE: Saving a life [:24].

CAT AT WORK: The Tree House Humane Society of Chicago has an unusual and apparently highly effective work release program for stray cats. After spaying or neutering, the cats who qualify are placed with property and business owners who also qualify. Once placed, the business becomes responsible for providing food, water, shelter, and healthcare. The cats’ presence alone is usually enough to deter rodents, while any that do try to move in will be hunted and caught. Cats work better than other common methods such as poison, gassing, or traps, the Humane Society reports, providing a “reliable, permanent solution and a win-win situation for both humans and cats.” It’s a win-win solution for Chicago, which has rated #1 Rattiest City six years running.

CIVICS: CLICK [2:57] to hear how educators have been destroying E Pluribus Unum for twenty years.

CLINTON: Noting a mysterious gap in the records, a U.S. Tax Court judge has ordered the IRS to report whether or not it has ever criminally investigated the Clinton Foundation.

ELECTION FRAUD: [2:31] – On Monday, the Antrim County, Michigan, election fraud case filed a bombshell of a pleading claiming their forensic specialist found votes were intentionally switched from President Trump to Joe Biden.

FAUCI: Get Real Dan interviews Sen. Paul [8:09] [ – They have the documents to prove that Dr. Fauci’s NIH used American taxpayers’ dollars to finance “gain of function” research at the Wuhan lab. The point of the research was to create a super virus. Paul says the days are gone when there was any legitimate point to such research. Yet there are eleven secret labs right here in the U.S. doing this work.

FAUX-CONOMY: Annual inflation has surged to 4.2%, the highest in 13 years. The surge in the core CPI is the largest monthly increase since April 1982.

FAUXTUS: “He takes questions nearly every day he’s out from the press. That is not something we recommend, in fact, a lot of times we say, Don’t take questions.’” – Jen Psaki

For giggles, picture former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany saying it’s ‘not something we recommend’ regarding President Trump taking impromptu questions from reporters, which he did more often than any of his predecessors by a country mile. Then imagine the reaction of, say, Jim Acosta or any other journalist upon hearing it. Smelling salts and/or a defibrillator come to mind.” – Joe Concha

FLORIDA: On Wednesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced he will be pardoning anyone who has been charged in the Sunshine State for defying coronavirus safety recommendations.

It’s a total overreach,” he told Laura Ingraham. “These things with health should be advisory, they should not be punitive.”

GAS CRISIS: After nearly seventeen minutes of obsessing about Liz Cheney, Meghan McCain tried to change the subject to something average Americans actually care about: the gas crisis. “Today a gallon of gas, average price is $3.01. Last year it was $1.85. … We have a gas shortage in America. It’s like the ‘70s and the Carter administration again.” Goldberg and Behar instantly jumped on Biden talking points … it’s a private company that suffered a cyber attack … then cut to a commercial.

JENNER: She is running for Governor of California and she seems to totally have the whole lying thing down. She told CNN she didn’t vote in the 2020 November election. The record shows she did.

LOCKDOWN: In 2020, COVID-19 lockdowns shaved 3.5% off U.S. GDP even as the federal government spent more than $2.6 trillion in relief measures. Millions of children fell behind in learning and nearly 100,000 businesses closed for good.

Conventional wisdom holds this was worth it because lives were saved by shutting workplaces and schools and telling people to stay home. But “The Backward Art of Slowing the Spread” – a new study by University of Chicago economist Casey Mulligan – shows that organizations that adopted prevention protocols became safer places than the wider community.

The available data from schools, hospitals, nursing homes, food processing plants, hair stylists, and airlines show employers adopting mitigation protocols in the spring of 2020. Coincident with the adoption, infection rates in workplaces typically dropped from well above household rates to well below.”

MEDIA MALPRACTICE: News coverage of Slow Joe’s early days = 65% of the stories centered around his ideology and policy agenda; 35% around his character and leadership.

News coverage of Trump’s early days = 26% of the stories centered around his ideology and policy agenda; 74% around his character and leadership.

Another significant difference in their coverage is that while the negative Biden stories modestly outnumbered the positive ones, negative stories about Trump exceeded positive ones by four-to-one.

ST. LOUIS: St. Louis is already one of the most dangerous cities in America with 194 murders last year. That didn’t stop Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) from celebrating the city’s idiotic decision to cut the police budget by $4 million.
