The White House has new instructions for Americans - lower your expectations
Democrats want you to believe America has always been this way
Tucker Carlson By Tucker Carlson | Fox News

We're going to take you back about a year and a few months to the day America changed. You may have noticed it at the time, but this really was the pivot point. It was the height of the BLM riots early last summer, and rioters in Minneapolis had just torched a bunch of different buildings, and standing right in front of them was an MSNBC reporter who was broadcasting live from the scene.

Now, the mob began by torching small businesses all through the city, including a liquor store, which of course, they looted first naturally. Then, as the rioting accelerated, they walked down the street and burned down the Third Precinct police station, the Minneapolis police station. Now, as you saw that happen, you realize, ooh, this is a little different from anything we've seen before. We've seen riots before, in 1992. Following the Rodney King verdict, rioters in Los Angeles torched a lot of the middle of that city. But they didn't burn any police stations because you can't burn a police station because there are police there and they're armed and they represent the law, they enforce the laws. You can't burn down a police station because if they let you do that, then you know the whole system is crumbled.

And yet that's exactly what happened just days into the BLM hysteria last summer. A police station was burning, and the implication of that was very clear. This is why we don't allow police stations to get burned because the message it sends is this: the police can't protect you, They can't even protect themselves. So the police aren't in charge. Legitimate authority is gone. The mob is now in charge.

So as this is happening, there happens to be, as noted, a reporter standing right there with a microphone and a camera taking those pictures directly into your living room. That reporter, was called Ali Velshi, and he's famously not super bright, but he was on the scene. Here is how he described what was happening right behind him.

ALI VELSHI: The fire engines can't get in here. There is no ability to bring anybody in here to solve this problem, so I want to be clear in how I characterize it, this mostly protests. It is not - It is not, generally speaking, unruly.

It's the greatest tape ever, you've probably seen it a hundred times. We watch it every morning, just for edification. It's mostly a protest, he said. Flames in the background. It's generally speaking, not unruly. While standing in front of a burning building.

WASHINGTON POST CRUSHED FOR PIECE CALLING ON AMERICAN CONSUMERS TO LOWER EXPECTATIONS: 'JOE BIDEN'S AMERICA'

So that tape, as we just said, is very famous and a lot of people look at it and they say, "that reporter is a moron." Which of course, is true. He couldn't even describe what he was seeing accurately. What a gaffe. But it wasn't a gaffe, was not taken out of context, in fact, it was MSNBC's explicit editorial policy to lie about what you were watching live, to characterize violent riots as peaceful protests.

And it wasn't just Ali Velshi. That very day, probably the oiliest of all MSNBC anchors, a character called Craig Melvin explained the network's approach to the story: "This will guide our reporting in MN: While the situation on the ground in Minneapolis is fluid, and there has been violence, it is most accurate at this time to describe what is happening there as protests -- not riots."

Paging Dr. Orwell, not riots, oh they're not riots. The one thing these things aren't - the torching the police station, looting liquor stores - they're not riots. Oh, not at all. But MSNBC is not an outlier in adopting this policy of reality denial. Here's what CNN's coverage said at the time"

LEMON: And let's not forget, if anyone is judging this, I'm not judging this. I'm just wondering what is going on. ... Our country was started because - the Boston Tea Party rioting. So don't get it twisted and think oh, this is something that has never happened before and this is so terrible and where are we and these savages and all of that. This is how this country was started.

Yeah, this is totally normal. We've been dealing with this for hundreds of years. Sam Adams himself torched a Wendy's and looted a liquor store before burning down a police station in downtown Minneapolis. It's how this country started. We've always had riots and looting virtually every day. It's totally normal.

Democrats found a new strategy: Lower your expectations Video
So your job as a viewer, per CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, all the rest of them, was to remain calm. Acknowledge that this is just the way things are. This is the way they have always been and accept it. The country your ancestors built is on fire, but shut up because your ancestors also burned it down.

Now that's not true. In fact, it's grotesquely untrue, and you have to be historically literate to believe it. Many people are, unfortunately, but it worked because propaganda does. That's why they do it. So instead of pushing back against this rioting, most Americans kind of went along with it. Well, it doesn't look quite right to me, but this is how our country started. That's what Don Lemon said. So I'm going to kind of go along with it. In other words, as your quality of life declines, you are instructed not to notice.

And this trend has continued, The Washington Post just ran this headline, "Don't rant about short-staffed stores and supply chain woes." Rather than "living constantly on the verge of throwing a fit ... We do ourselves a favor by consciously lowering expectations."

Got that? So if you don't like the fact the shelves are bare in your local store, don't throw a fit. Don't be an entitled little tool. Lower your expectations, what did you expect in America? Come on. Bread lines, we've always had bread lines. It's sort of charmingly retro, these bread lines. Don't complain as your life becomes worse and as your country degrades. That's the message, and not surprisingly, that message is coming directly from the people who are making your life worse and destroying the country. That would, of course, would be the White House. Here's his grouchy little flack today, almost impossible to believe this person is real and not just some sort of mockup of like a Wesleyan gender study student. Apparently, she is real. And today she was asked about these supply chain problems like our ports are shut down - What do we do? She mocked the reporter's question. How dare you ask.

REPORTER: Just a question on the timing on the supply chain issue, actions that the president has taken, it was clear in March 2020 when COVID hit that their supply chains across the world had been disrupted, even as the sort of work to fight back against COVID proceeded people. It was crystal clear that things were not improving on supply chain. People couldn't get dishwashers and furniture and treadmills delivered on time, not to mention all sorts of other things.

JEN PSAKI: The tragedy of the treadmill that's delayed.

REPORTER: But the serious point is, why didn't the president act sooner in a more aggressive way?

Were you complaining about not having a treadmill? Settle down, Karen. What do you want to exercise? You've got Netflix and weed. Shut up. Get back to your cube, be happy, lower your expectations. And if you do go outside, if you notice the Walgreens is, for example, closed, and shows the CVS because everything in there has been stolen by thieves who've now been redefined in civil rights protesters. Stop complaining, Karen. It's always been this way. Now, San Francisco has very few Walgreens or CVS or stores like that left because they've all been looted by civil rights protesters. But that's not a problem, according to the mayor of San Francisco. In fact, as she explains, it's really Walgreen's fault.

We buy too much unnecessary crap.

Walk into any surf shop.

99% is useless crap.

Surfboard, baggies & go.

The rest is gimmick.

But, you wouldn't know what the inside of a surf shop looks like:
because FatFish doesn't surf.

Points out the stark difference between progs and Republicans. Progs: lower your expectations. Republicans: Make America Great Again. This isn't a fluke either. Progs/dems are always asking us to deal with worse. Under Obama - "These jobs aren't coming back." They did under Trump. What have I long said? Progs crave failure. And here we see just that.

Trade wars have consequences, especially when you add a pandemic into the mix. Now factor in the cut to immigration and low wages demanded by Republicans and here we are. Thank God Trump isn't president, just imagine the state we would be in right now if he was.

And that is the prog America summed up nicely, folks. "You don't need all this stuff that you want and we are not going to let you have it anymore." Look for a comeback of the Yugo.

I don't need to do jack squat.

Stores are loaded with useless crap.

Bread?

Quit lying. Grocery store aisles are stocked.

All you have to sell is fear.

Nobody except for the Faux Entertainment fools and the weirdo doomsday preppers believe this.

This past September, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law new legislation focused on making things a little more difficult for independent owner-operators, such as truck drivers and gig economy workers, possibly even putting them out of business.

Taking effect starting January 1, 2020, those in the trucking industry could find themselves in the crosshairs. So, what does this all mean for trucking professionals?

Trucking Companies and Professionals in AB-5

In California, there are more than136,000 small trucking companies that are locally owned with small fleets and independent drivers who take care of their operations. This means that motor carriers and owner-operators are left in the lurch trying to figure out a strategy for what they can do now.

California is currently experiencing a truck driver shortage, much like the rest of the nation, but maybe even more so, since the state is highly dependent on the flow of goods coming from Mexico or Arizona and the flow of goods into the seaports. The new measure may aggravate the issue at hand by removing thousands of drivers from the road because of de-classifying them.

The lawsuit contends that reclassifying independent tractor-trailer operators under the California trucking laws threatens the livelihood of upwards of 70,000 CDL holders.



How Do Truckers Feel About A Mandated Jab?

26% of respondents would rather be fired than be forced to vaccinate

The vaccine has been largely unpopular among members of the trucking community since it was introduced.

A CDLLife poll of 1,053 users conducted in December 2020 found that 79% of respondents did not plan to get the vaccine when it became available. Drivers cited a number of reasons for not wanting the vaccine - some said that the vaccine was rushed, others cited medical and bodily autonomy reasons for refusal, and still more said they were concerned about side effects.

A poll conducted by CDLLife following the September 9 Biden announcement shows that 26% of the 2200 respondents say they would rather be fired than get the vaccine. Another 10.3% told us that they'd opt to quit before getting vaccinated. An additional 7.1% of respondents said that they would begin looking for jobs at smaller trucking companies that don't meet the 100 employee threshold.

The good? Truck drivers that are already vaxxed should see a bump in their pay as they become even higher demand for large fleets over 100 employees. Fleets with over 100 employees must basically have vaxxed drivers as it's near impossible to test unvaxxed drivers weekly when they are out on the road for weeks or months at a time. Not to mention the costs of trying to do this.

The bad? This will exacerbate the already tight capacity issue that exits now. Even if a very small % of drivers leave the industry, supply chains will suffer greatly. This in effect will drive freight rates even higher resulting in higher inflation in consumer products.

Supply Chains and Shippers should settle in for a long, bumpy ride.
