God Help Us All: Dr. Fauci Knows Exactly What He's Doing

By Michael Thau

Last Thursday, the scientific mastermind behind the economic carnage and spirit-crushing isolation now constituting the two main pillars of America's ingenious new public health strategy delivered some bad news. Dr. Fauci says we'll have to keep living like this until the virus is eradicated.

Even if "virus" isn't his nickname for the American people, following his advice still means a long, grueling haul. The economic shutdown and social confinement oppressing us have to continue for at least the minimum estimated 18 months it will take to develop a vaccine for COVID-19. Longer, since the stipulation that our rights don't get restored until new infections cease means we have to manufacture and distribute enough to inoculate 60% of the population. All told, we're talking God only knows how many years.

It is their inability to think through the propaganda with which their Leaders incessantly besiege them that has produced some concerning outcomes.

(1)Their inability to think has rendered them oblivious to the contradictions of their Leaders (Dr. Fauci, despite scaring the public with the claim that The Virus is ten times deadlier than the seasonal flu, quietly conceded in The New England Journal of Medicine, along with his co-author, Dr. Redfield, director of the CDC, that for all they know, it may have a mortality rate comparable to that of the .1% of seasonal influenza).

PEPE ESCOBAR: Who Profits from the Pandemic? April 8, 2020

But now, with the world-system collapsing at breathtaking speed, neoliberalism is at a loss to deal with the next stage of dystopia, ever present in our hyper-connected angst: global mass unemployment.

An inhaler to fight coronavirus?

Kiwi scientists are looking at whether a decoy molecule, delivered through an inhaler, could fool coronavirus by drawing it in before it can attach to our lung cells.

A team led by Auckland Hospital immunologist Associate Professor Rohan Ameratunga is exploring the concept of making a bogus receptor that could be used in a device that could keep healthcare workers safe.

"The virus is also entering the lungs through droplets of moisture, so the decoy — we hope — would stop the virus from binding to the cells," said Dr Davide Comoletti, a senior lecturer at Victoria University's School of Biological Sciences.

"The idea is to make a purified receptor most spikes of the virus will bind to instead of to the actual receptors attached to sensitive cells.

Fed Eases Wells Fargo "Growth Restrictions" So Bank Can Participate In Small Business Bailout

Following Wells Fargo's complaint that it was unable to fully participate in the SBA's Paycheck Protection Program, capping its small business bailout exposure to at most $10 billion, due to the Fed unprecedented 2018 enforcement action and restrictions on Wells Fargo's balance sheet as punishment for the bank's opening of millions of fake accounts which cost former CEO John Stumpf his job, it was only a matter of time before the Fed relented and eased the bank's restrictions as the NYT reported two days ago.

And indeed, this happened moments ago when the Fed announced that "due to the extraordinary disruptions from the coronavirus, that it will temporarily and narrowly modify the growth restriction on Wells Fargo so that it can provide additional support to small businesses."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of Heaven, any sane person would want to bank with Wells Fargo is completely beyond me, given that combination of its amazing track record, and unrequited propensity for criminal acts.

Iran Pleads For $5BN IMF Loan As Deaths Soar Past 4,000; US To Block Funds

Iran is desperately pleading for the International Monetary Fund to approve a $5 billion emergency loan to help the outbreak-ravaged country to survive.

“I urge international organizations to fulfill their duties... we are a member of the IMF... There should be no discrimination in giving loans,” President Hassan Rouhani said in televised remarks Wednesday.

He further slammed US sanctions on the Islamic Republic as “economic and medical terrorism” — given the US-led near total economic blockade of the country has severely hampered Tehran's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. There are currently over 64,500 confirmed cases and as of Wednesday this includes a grim milestone of surpassing 4,000 deaths after months ago Iran became the first epicenter outside China, followed by Italy.

Of course, the U.S. is expected to block the loan:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am not surprised, but completely sickened by what the US government is doing here; apparently, to the Foggy Bottomites, they just don't care about how many Iranian people whose lives will be snuffed out by this virus, to allow reasonable aid to be released by the IMF to help this combat it.

And that... is completely despicable.
