AFRICA: I was among those who expected the ‘rona to decimate poor countries. But it hasn’t. Instead, it’s been the wealthier and more well-equipped countries that have had higher death tolls. Sierra Leone had only 125 coronavirus-related deaths. Ghana had 1,445. Tanzania had 800. Togo had 272. And it’s for sure not the vaxxx. In Liberia, only 12% of the population got the shots; they’ve had 294 total coronavirus-related deaths.
FLORIDA: Starting with the fall of 2023, high school students will be required to pass a half credit class in basic financial literacy to graduate from high school.
IDAHO: Gov. Brad Little, R-ID, signed a ban on abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected. The law has an enforcement mechanism similar to that of Texas’ pro-life law. Abortionists who commit an abortion after the six-week mark can face legal action from any relative of the preborn child.
J6: Meanwhile, January 6 defendants were denied bail and rotted in jail awaiting misdemeanor charges. One lost hope of ever getting a fair trial and killed himself.
KBJ: On Tuesday, John Pavlovitz, who claims to be a pastor, tweeted, “I can’t fathom the mind of a woman who still votes Republican. I can only feel sorry for whatever story they tell themselves.”
Then, on Wednesday, he tweeted, “Seriously, you can’t align yourself with a serial predator like Donald Trump or with this cadre of shameless misogynists berating Ketanji Brown Jackson and pretend you’re for women. It’s ridiculous.”
Male and female tweeters let him know what a misogynistic a**hole he is.
“Thanks for mansplaining to women how they should vote.”
“How dare women not ask for your input and permission on how to vote. We really went too far when we stopped chaining women to the kitchen stove. /s”
“She is seeking to sit on the highest court in the land. She doesn’t need you to defend her, or hide from questioning because she is a woman. If she does, she has no place sitting on bench. Being a woman or minority isn’t shield from scrutiny. You don’t get to run from tough ?’s.”
“How was Amy Coney Barrett treated by Democrat men during the vetting process? Or how was she treated by the media at large?”
RUSSIA! RUSSIA! RUSSIA!: On Thursday, Trump filed a massive RICO lawsuit against Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Clinton campaign chief John Podesta, the law firm Perkins Coie, the research firm Fusion GPS, former FBI officials Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and Christopher Steele, the ex-British intelligence agent who authored the notorious, fake “Trump-Russia dossier.” The suit asserts that the defendants falsified evidence, deceived law-enforcement authorities and exploited access to “highly-sensitive data sources” in a way that “even the events of Watergate pale in comparison.”
S&G: P is for Pansexual, “a sexual orientation that does not look at a person based on gender.” Are they grooming your kids? You betcha! When my girls were this age, the pediatrician said I didn’t need to do anything more than teach them to tell me if anyone tried to touch them in a place their bathing suits covered.
STANDING UP: Dr. Paul Alexander is a Canadian health researcher who served under Trump at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services during the Covid-19 pandemic. On Monday, he published an article in which he says, “I joined McCullough, Malone, Vanden Bossche, Oskoui, Rische, Tenenbaum, Trozzi, Wolf, Urso et al. willingly, to wage battle for society.”
Pfizer offered him $1 million plus $50,000/month to shut up. Despite his income taking a huge hit for his work exposing the ‘rona fraud, he said no. He wrote, “Those of us who have been cancelled have been hurt, name wise, career, slandered etc. But for each person there is a time in life that we chose to stand up or not.”

VAXXX: The latest CDC data shows that vaxxxed and unvaxxxed children aged 5–11 years catch the ‘rona at the same rate. Young children are at the lowest risk of contracting COVID-19 or suffering severe outcomes. Meanwhile, people continue to be damaged and even killed by the still-not-approved gene therapy shots.
WHAT IS A WOMAN: CLICK https://twitter.com/MattWalshBlog/status/1506966948483059716 [:56] to see a trailer for Matt Walsh’s upcoming movie. He says, “I talked to academics, doctors, sex change surgeons, therapists, psychiatrists, trans activists, and politicians. I asked them simple questions and watched gender ideology crumble right in front of my eyes. You’ll see for yourself soon.”
GRAMMY NOTES: I have been doing quick portraits with charcoal and white pastel pencils on gray paper. No grids, no tracing, just eyeball practice. These are great fun, but so far, none has looked like the reference photos. This one came the closest, but I think he looks more like Alec Guinness as Obi Wan Kenobi than he does like St. Padre Pio, the guy I was trying to draw.

Regarding Africa… I heard a guy talking recently about the very low death rates from covid in Ethiopia. His explanation was that in Ethiopia, very few people have cars, so almost everyone walks everywhere, and obesity is pretty much nonexistent.

I also heard someone else talk about how common ivermectin is in countries where malaria is common.
Other factors that occur to me are that infection seems to require long-term exposure, which only happens indoors, which explains why surges occur in the south in the summer when everyone huddles in the a/c and in the north in the winter when everyone huddles in the heated indoors.
The virus also doesn’t last long in sun or open air, so people who work outdoors are not going to be infected easily.
