Top bankers FINALLY take a pay cut in the face of coronavirus (but not at Lloyds, HSBC or taxpayer-backed RBS)

Bosses of Britain's biggest banks have begun to cave in to pressure to cut their pay in the face of the coronavirus crisis.

TSB announced yesterday that its ten-strong executive committee, including chief executive Debbie Crosbie, would give up their bonuses worth several million pounds.

And Barclays said its chief executive Jes Staley, finance director Tushar Morzaria and chairman Nigel Higgins would give a third of their fixed pay for the next six months to charities working on the Covid-19 frontline.

Seeking coronavirus relief, investment firm with ties to Kushner emails Kushner, Trump admin

The co-founder of a huge private equity firm sent an email this week to Jared Kushner and other Trump administration policymakers seeking to relax rules on coronavirus relief money in a way that would benefit the company, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Kushner's family real estate business has financial ties to the company, Apollo Global Management.

A source close to Kushner says there was nothing remarkable about his receipt of the email, from Apollo co-founder Mark Rowan. Kushner gets hundreds of proposals from all sorts of people, the source said. But Apollo is not just any business: It made a $184 million loan in 2017 to Kushner Companies, the real estate company in which Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, retains an interest.

The Lockdown Wouldn't Be So Devastating If Our Economy Wasn't So Rigged, Brittle and Exploitive

An economy of rackets designed to enrich the few at the expense of the many is brittle because self-serving rackets snuff out competition, accountability and transparency.

What's remarkable about the lockdown isn't the hue and cry about the economic damage--it's the absence of any critical curiosity as to how our economy became so fragile that only the wealthiest contingent can survive a few weeks on savings or rainy-day funds.

Empires don't collapse because everyone ran out of money; they collapse when the costs exceed earnings.

Wall Street’s Banks Could Profit by Millions on Coronavirus Deaths of Employees

If it sounds ghoulish, it’s because it is ghoulish.

Some of the biggest banks on Wall Street have been intimidating their traders to come back to work despite an executive order from the Governor of New York State, Andrew Cuomo, ordering people to remain at home during the coronavirus outbreak unless they work for essential businesses like grocery stores, pharmacies and hospitals.

New York State, home to Wall Street, is now the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States with 5,489 deaths as of today or 44 percent of all deaths from coronavirus in the entire United States.

U.S. airlines want a $50 billion bailout. They spent $45 billion buying back their stock.

Yes, we should bail out the airlines. Having them collapse now would add more instability to our economy and endanger even more jobs. But we should give tax payers a handsome return on their loan.

US threatens Saudi, Russia with tariffs if oil feud continues

US President Donald Trump yesterday said he would be willing to impose a tax on foreign oil should Saudi Arabia and Russia fail to reach a settlement in their dispute in cutting oil production which has contributed to the global collapse in energy prices.

Referring to the two countries, Trump told reporters at the daily White House coronavirus briefing “If they don’t get along, I would do tariffs, very substantial tariffs, I would absolutely do that”, adding that he intends on protecting the US oil industry.

Government To Decide What Items Are Essential Purchases And What Things You're Not Allowed To Buy

Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

Living under lockdown restrictions, prevalent in nearly every state, is about to get a whole lot worse. The government in the United States and Canada has decided to take away the guesswork in the stores that are still open and decide for you what’s “essential” and what’s not.

Vermont has started a worrisome trend.
Vermont has decided to choose for you what is essential and what is not, banning the sale of non-essential items at stores like Target, Walmart, and Costco.

The Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD) is directing large “big box” retailers, such as Walmart, Target and Costco, with in-store sales of food, beverage and pharmacy, as well as electronics, toys, clothing, and the like to cease in-person sales of non-essential items in order to reduce the number of people coming into the stores.

U.S. officer killed in ambush in eastern Syria: SANA

A U.S. officer, along with two Kurdish fighters, was killed on Monday in an ambush in Syria's eastern province of Deir al-Zour, state news agency SANA reported.

The ambush, carried out by an unknown group, targeted vehicles of the U.S.-led coalition and fighters of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in the village of Sur in Deir al-Zour's countryside.

The slain U.S. officer was transported to the Shaddadi base, which is run by the U.S. forces, in the southern countryside of the northeastern province of Hasakah, SANA said, providing no further details.

The U.S. forces and Kurdish-led fighters control areas in Deir al-Zour and Hasakah after dislodging Islamic State (IS) militants in battles in 2018.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am, frankly, very deeply concerned that the US military is in Syria at all, period, end of discussion....

Australian digital-radio-for-railways Huawei project derailed by US trade sanctions against Chinese tech giant

One of Huawei’s flagship projects in Australia has been called off because, as the state government put it, “trade restrictions imposed by the US government create a force majeure event that cannot be overcome.”

The Public Transport Authority of Western Australia, which wants to spend AU$136m (US$82m, £66.5m) to replace its analogue radio systems with a shiny new digital network, has therefore pulled out of the deal on the grounds of force majeure: something catastrophic and unforeseen has occurred.

Huawei and engineering firm UGL won the contract together in 2018, forming the HUGL Consortium to get the job done.

SOCIAL DISTANCING CRACKDOWN COMING IN MICHIGAN AS CORONAVIRUS DEATHS MOUNT

Duggan acknowledged city officials had “significant debate … about closing parks” but settled on increased patrols, plane flyovers and video surveillance to disperse crowds. The city will begin issuing misdemeanor citations punishable by $1,000 fines and six months in jall, he said.

“We’ve got the resources to deal with these violations,” Duggan said Friday, as some police officers return to work after the department was hard hit by the virus.

“We don’t want to be fining anybody, but we can’t be having these gatherings, we can’t be having folks on the street.”

Duggan announced the crackdown the day after Michigan Department of Health and Human Services director Robert Gordon issued an order allowing police to fine violators up to $1,000 or implement criminal penalties for breaking social distancing rules.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mike and I are very lucky to be living in the very rural part a state with some sort of horse-sense, about both social distancing, and responsible, reasonable ways to get the numbers of new infections down.

CDC director downplays coronavirus models, says death toll will be 'much lower' than projected

One of the nation’s top public health officials suggested Monday that because Americans are taking social distancing recommendations “to heart,” the death toll from the novel coronavirus will be “much, much, much lower” than models have projected.

“If we just social distance, we will see this virus and this outbreak basically decline, decline, decline. And I think that's what you're seeing,” said Robert Redfield, the Director of the Centers for Disease Control.

CORONAGATE: The Truth Emerges

To sum up where we stand today, April 6: Based on the pretext that we must “limit the spread” of the Wuhan virus, the American economic boom of the past three years has been reversed in a matter of days, millions have lost their jobs, tens of thousands of small businesses have been shuttered and will probably never reopen, and three-quarters of the American population has been subjected to some form of house arrest by state, county and city governments.

All over the country people are being fined or arrested and jailed for violating suddenly imposed restrictions on their every movement and gathering, often with the aid of their neighbors, who turn them in to the police, following instructions on how to be a snitch.

No, Mr. Boomer We’ve Run Out of God Pills

Consider this an open message to The Davos Crowd. I can see you using the pandemic of COVID-19 to run the table on holding onto power while your institutions fail.

It is obvious that by either design or acting opportunistically this pandemic has become your casus belli on us, to usher in a new world based on total surveillance, total compliance and control.

You’ve used fear over a bug to induce mass hysteria at a level that is difficult to contain. After more than two generations of marginalizing the masculine and amplifying the feminine and the Progressive deification of trained experts which you turned into ‘believe all women’ to push identity politics has reached its zenith.

All Crises Are Local

“South Dakota is not New York City.”

A seemingly innocuous statement, made last Wednesday by Governor Kristi Noem in response to calls for her to issue a coronavirus shutdown across a state with the motto “Under God the People Rule.”

South Dakota, after all, is one of the least densely populated states in the vast American West. Surely local circumstances should inform local responses to a communicable disease?

Not so, according to Noem’s scolds at Change.org. They want the same “theory” applied in Brooklyn and in prairie towns with eleven residents per square mile.

All Roads Lead to Dark Winter

The leaders of two controversial pandemic simulations that took place just months before the Coronavirus crisis – Event 201 and Crimson Contagion – share a common history, the 2001 biowarfare simulation Dark Winter. Dark Winter not only predicted the 2001 anthrax attacks, but some of its participants had clear foreknowledge of those attacks.

During the presidency of George H.W. Bush in the early 1990s, something disturbing unfolded at the U.S.’ top biological warfare research facility at Fort Detrick, Maryland. Specimens of highly contagious and deadly pathogens – anthrax and ebola among them – had disappeared from the lab, at a time when lab workers and rival scientists had been accused of targeted sexual and ethnic harassment and several disgruntled researchers had left as a result.

We are in the middle of the worst global health pandemic of our lives according to the Media, the Government and the United Nations. We are witnessing an unprecedented global lockdown in response to the Coronavirus outbreak known as COVID19.

The global population living in western countries have been taught for more than a generation to live in a constant state of fear ever since 9/11. We have been encouraged to sacrifice our liberty for a false sense of security, being conditioned more and more each day to rely on the state for protection and now many of us find ourselves relying on the state to pay our bills.

Venezuela’s Maduro pens open letter to Americans

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has released a letter addressed to the American people urging them to prevent what he calls the madness that drives the government of President Donald Trump.

In the letter, Maduro says Trump seems determined to fulfill his threats of a military invasion against the Latin American country. Maduro stated that the country cannot accept war threats, nor the intention to install an international guardianship that would violate the country’s sovereignty.

The Venezuelan leader also demanded an end to the illegal sanctions and blockade by the US, which have impeded the import of humanitarian goods to fight the coronavirus outbreak in the country. Maduro said Trump must by no means be allowed to "lead the US into another conflict, like in Vietnam, or Iraq."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

People in Caracas, including President Maduro, actually believe that Americans will have the opportunity to read this letter, and respond to it intelligently and humanely, asking their government to do the same.

However, unless one reads the English language version of presstv.com; telesurenglish.net; informationclearinghouse.info; thealtworld.com; en.granma.cu; liberationnews.org; telesurtv.net; or, ultimately, WRH, one is not going to know that such an open letter from Maduro's even exists.

IF one looks at Foxnews.com; the latimes.com; or nytimes.com, you will see nothing of this appeal by Maduro; it is as though it never existed.

So I, as an American citizen, who very much cares about her country's future, am compelled to ask the current Trump Administration; please, with regard to both Iran and Venezuela, loosen some of the worst embargo strictures on these pandemic-hit countries, and show yourselves as the international humanitarians you claim to be.

President Trump, I would politely suggest that the world is watching your actions right now, even over and above anything you might say.

 "We Will Whip You" - Zambian Police Crackdown On Non-Quarantine-Compliant Citizens

We noted on Monday that Africa could be facing an economic collapse amid the COVID-19 pandemic. At least 54 countries on the continent have imposed lockdowns, curfews, and or travel bans to mitigate the spread of the virus. In Zambia, a country with 17 million people, has shut down casinos, cinemas, and schools to minimize people's movements.

Police Spokeswoman Esther Mwaata Katongo told Diamond TV Zambia in a local television interview that the police are enforcing a lockdown with hard measures for non-compliant civilians, reported RT News.

"Zambian police have whips. So, if you want to dare authorities, if you want to dare the police, then you are welcome," Katongo said in a TV interview as she showed off a baton that officers are using.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Police Spokesperson Mwaata Katongo, a word, please; if your police whip non-compliers of the curfew, are they not spreading the disease with the droplets left behind by the physical contact between the whips and potentially contaminated human blood?!?

This is a hard one; but ALL of us have to think this through a lot better than we have been until now. I am amazed that none of the scientists advising Zambian police, have not mentioned this possibility, and that fact that such behaviour on the part of Zambian police, could lead to more infections, rather than fewer.

A New Viral Infection: Leaders Seizing Power, Police Bullying Citizens

ass surveillance is only ever in the news for two reasons—either because a whistleblower has exposed structural government overreach (as happened with Edward Snowden) or because nations are readying to fight a common threat. Over the past two decades, those threats have usually come either from migration or terrorism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You need t following article by Michael Snyder:
o look at the following article, appearing yesterday at zerohedge.com (and if you have never checked them out, you should; it is not that occasionally, Mike and I don't disagree with them, but I have a great respect, generally, for what this blog turns out, and/or links to, as in the case of this article by Michael Snyder:

the article goes on to state: "I know that all of this sounds incredibly bizarre, but it is really happening. The following is what one of my contacts reported when she visited her local Walmart…

Wow, so we just got back from walmart in Pine Bluff, AR….they herded us in, like cattle…I kid you not….we had to go through a taped-off line and they had only one door open instead of the two they normally have. They have a 5 person limit in Magnolia, AR…..and security guards at the door as well…armed security guards. You can only buy one loaf of bread and the store closed at 7PM…normally open 24 hours. It is CRAZY….someone opened a side door by accident and alarms started going off. I joked to the lady next to me “Oh crap, someone must have taken more than a dozen eggs!”

You can see some video of what these taped off entry corridors looks like right here. Obviously a lot of the customers are quite concerned about potentially catching the virus because they are wearing masks or other coverings over their mouths."

The World’s Biggest Oil Deal Can’t Save Crude Prices

G20 countries are set to send their oil minister for an emergency meeting on Friday, a sign that there is a chance that OPEC and Russia can pull in other oil-producing countries into a global production cut. Sentiment around the odds of a massive production cut deal have seemingly gyrated just as much as oil prices. Last week, President Trump’s tweet was met with euphoria by oil traders but skepticism by analysts. A day later, the odds seemed to improve dramatically and OPEC+ agreed to hold a meeting on Monday after Russia voiced some degree of support. But Trump dashed hopes again after he emerged from a meeting with American oil executives and said that the free market would sort things out.

Uber’s Green Competitor That’s Taking The World By Storm

Stark photos show miles-long row of cars waiting outside a Florida food bank as demand surges by 600 per cent and more than half-a-million residents file for unemployment

Dramatic images from South Florida on Monday show a long line of cars backed up bumper to bumper on a roadway while motorists wait hours to get food from a food bank.

A drone captured aerial shots of vehicles waiting in line in Sunrise, Florida, just northwest of Fort Lauderdale, on Monday.

The motorists were waiting to receive food from Feeding South Florida, a food bank that relies on donations to feed the poor.

Feeding South Florida has seen a 600 per cent increase in the number of people asking for food as millions have been laid off due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Bailing-Out The Bailed-Out

“I’ve never signed anything with a ‘T’ before,” Donald Trump quipped at the signing of the $2 trillion CARES Act. He reportedly wants his signature on coronavirus relief checks, as if they were Trump Plaza casino chips. This might be a fitting metaphor for America’s post-virus economic future.

The new bailout bill, which combined with a series of Federal Reserve interventions is more like a $6 trillion rescue, is a massive double-down on the 2008 rescue efforts.

Boeing Troubles Continue

Boeing has had a rough couple of years, starting with two separate 737 MAX crashes in October 2018 and March 2019, respectively, which killed a combined 346 people.

Boeing saw net total orders drop to negative 87 airplanes last year, its worst in decades. For comparison, its main competitor Airbus saw a net 768 orders last year.

Boeing's troubles continued into this year as production of the 737 MAX continues to remain halted. In January, Boeing reported zero net orders, while in February the company reported negative 28 net orders.

With Boeing already facing significant challenges, the coronavirus outbreak has added additional pressure to the company.

Food-Banks Warn They'll Soon Run Out Of Food As Economic Suffering Explodes All Over America

What are hungry Americans going to do when the food banks don’t have any more food for them? Over the past couple of weeks, we have witnessed the largest spike in unemployment in all of U.S. history. Since most of those workers did not have any sort of a cushion to fall bank on, a lot of of them have been forced to seek out emergency assistance for themselves and their families almost immediately. Of course our national network of food banks was not built to handle this sort of a scenario, and as you will see below, many of them are already starting to run out of food. But if things are this bad at the very beginning of this new economic downturn, what are things going to look like a few months from now?

ALMOST HALF OF SMALL BUSINESS WILL CLOSE IF THEY CANNOT REOPEN SOON

In a new survey of small business owners, almost half (43%) say their livelihood is on the line and they are going to be forced to close permanently if they cannot resume normal activities soon. One in 10 (11%) are less than one month away from permanently going out of business thanks to the government’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Additionally, about one in four (24%) small businesses have already shut down temporarily in response to the government’s demands to do so during the COVID-19 panic and overreaction. Among those that have not, 40% say they are likely to close at least temporarily within the next two weeks. This means a total of 54% of all small businesses report that they have closed or expect to close temporarily in the next 14 days.

NEW SURVEY: 60% OF AMERICANS CANNOT PROVIDE BASIC NECESSITIES IF QUARANTINED FOR 1 MONTH

The solution to the coronavirus pandemic has been nothing short of economic suicide. As this lockdown drags into the fourth month for most of the country, a new survey is revealing the bleak costs that Americans are paying in order to comply with the government’s commands to shut down the economy.

Some are saying social distancing is the “new normal”, but we’d beg to differ. The new normal is going to be poverty for most of the country.

Almost 60 percent of Americans say they’d be unable to meet their basic financial needs in one month or less of quarantine, according to a survey. The Society for Humane Resource Management (SHRM) surveyed American workers between 12 and 16 March, according to a report by Newsweek. One in five people said they’d no longer be able to afford rent, bills or groceries after just one week of quarantine.

"The worst numbers of growth France has shown after [the crisis of] 1945 was in 2009 after the big financial crisis of 2008: -2.2%. We will likely be far below -2,2% this year," Le Maire said, while addressing the economic affairs commission of the French Senate on Monday.

Modern Medicine Knew Of Zinc Cure For Coronavirus Infections A Decade Ago But Failed To Put Into Practice

In 2010 a collaboration of university-based researchers in The Netherlands and the USA reported that the combination of the trace mineral zinc plus a zinc transport molecule (ionophore) that facilitates zinc’s entry into cells efficiently impairs the replication of RNA viruses, like the newly mutated COVID-19 coronavirus, to effect a cure.

The discovery is documented in PLoS Pathogens journal, Volume 6, issue 11, November 2010.

This prior discovery appears to validate the recent report of Vladimir Zelenko MD, a New York-based physician who treated 699 consecutive cases of COVID-19 coronavirus with complete 100% success. His treatment protocol includes oral zinc, chloroquine as a zinc ionophore and an antibiotic (azithromycin).

End the Shutdown; It’s Time for Resurrection!

For many millions of Christians, Easter is a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Others may celebrate the arrival of spring and the promise of new life. Whatever one’s beliefs, after several weeks of mandatory “stay at home” orders and the complete shutdown of the US economy over the coronavirus, this self-destructive hysteria must end and we must reclaim the freedom and liberty that has provided us so much opportunity as Americans.

To do that we should first understand that much of the hysteria is being generated by a mainstream media that has long prioritized sensationalism over investigating and reporting the truth. Government bureaucrats are also exaggerating the threat of this virus and appear to be enjoying the power and control that fearful people are willingly handing over to them. One “coronavirus” bureaucrat even told us that we can no longer go to the grocery store! So we should just starve?

COVID-19: B.C. farms dumping milk because of problems getting it to the store

VICTORIA — B.C. dairy farmers have begun dumping out raw milk on their farms— despite rising demand and sales — because of problems getting the milk into the supply chain and to grocery stores during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the United States, dairy farmer Jason Leedle has dumped almost 18,000 litres of milk from his 480 cows each day for a week.

“It’s just gut-wrenching,” said Leedle, 36, as he stood inside his barn, with cows lowing softly as the animals were giving milk that would be funnelled directly into a manure pit. “All I can see is that line going down the drain.”

They track “excess mortality”, meaning the number of officially recorded deaths vs the average death rate.

The Naval War College Ran a Pandemic War Game in 2019. The Conclusions Were Eerie

An infectious disease breaks out in a densely populated metropolis and is spreading rapidly, causing respiratory failure and death in its victims. As local containment and response mechanisms break down and cases multiply, it becomes clear that a global response -- spanning governments, humanitarian organizations, health agencies and the military -- will be required.

That scenario is not a condensed narrative of the COVID-19 pandemic that currently has much of the globe on lockdown. Rather, it's the premise of a war game run last September by the Naval War College (NWC) in Newport, Rhode Island.

Clean & Unclean Foods & Dietary Laws The Bible and Food

Long list of animals to eat or not eat. Makes sense to me.

As discussed on page one, clean foods are those that do not harm the human body and so are fit for nourishment. Unclean foods on the other hand are those that do harm the body and hence are unhealthy to consume. The Bible clearly reveals what foods are good and bad for the human body and in Leviticus chapter 11 we find four categories that help us remember more easily a lot of what we can and cannot eat.

So note the following four scriptures to help you remember what foods are clean and unclean.

The Recession Bread Lines Are Forming in Mar-a-Lago’s Shadow

In Palm Beach a diner races to feed laid off workers. Food banks and pantries see surge in demand and long-term need.

Though it’s just a four-minute drive across the lagoon from Mar-a-Lago, President Donald Trump’s private club, and ten minutes from the Palm Beach outposts of Chanel and Louis Vuitton, Howley’s diner has become an emblem of America’s stark new economic reality.
