What Happens If U.S. Shale Goes Bust?

This month has seen a spectacular oil price crash the likes of which we haven't seen in decades.

The oil price war and subsequent crash have had devastating effects on U.S. shale, which was already struggling with diminishing profit margins. “Few U.S. shale firms can withstand prolonged oil price war,” Reuters proclaimed last week. “For the last five years, U.S. shale oil producers have been battling suppliers for lower costs and running equipment and crews hard to drive drilling costs down by about $20 a barrel,” the article reports. “The oil market rout last week, however, has left most shale firms facing prices below their costs of production.”

The CDC Started Looking for Quarantine Advisors Last November, Before the Coronavirus Crisis

This is not fake news. This is not taken out of context. This clearly shows that the CDC was planning a quarantine program before the coronavirus “pandemic” and actively began recruiting for positions on November 15, 2019, well before the first case of Covid-19 was even known about.

This is a screenshot of the job posting:

Hand-washing: a luxury millions of Yemenis can't afford

Hand-washing to combat the spread of coronavirus is the order of the day, but it's an unaffordable luxury for millions in war-ravaged Yemen where clean water is dangerously scarce.

Yemen's broken healthcare system has yet to register any cases of the disease, but if the pandemic does hit, the impact will be unimaginable in a country where five years of conflict has created what the United Nations calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis.

Five years after a Saudi-led military coalition intervened in Yemen to support the government against the Iran-backed Huthi rebels, some 80 percent of the population is in need of aid.

- Cholera and disease -

Yemen suffered one of its worst ever outbreaks of cholera in 2017.

"Years of under-investment in public water and sanitation systems provided the foundations for this outbreak," Bismarck Swangin, UNICEF Yemen's chief of communications, told AFP.

"The risk still remains if access to water continues to be low."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What this article deliberately avoids naming and shaming, is the US military's having enabled Saudi destruction of Yemen, including live fire taking the lives of infants; toddlers; women, and the medically fragile elderly; they have enabled the complete destruction of water infrastructure, guaranteeing that the water will nearly certainly cause disease; and prevented aid ships from getting in to Yemen, to provide desperately needed food aid.

Dr Anthony Fauci is now the President of the United States

HEADLINE: “In Dr. Fauci we Trust.” (Daily Beast)

The Daily Beast writes about Fauci: “…as he guides the nation through the coronavirus crisis…stands at the White House with President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence…introduce[s] actual truth to the coronavirus briefings…Fauci has been in charge from the start.”

The ECONOMIC DEVASTATION now consciously set in place, in the US, as a result of lockdowns, will last…how long?

“This is not politics. This is science and concern and containment and healing.”

No. This is a coup.

This is an economic war.

“Travel Papers” and the Pandemic Patriot Act 2.0

The MTA issued “travel papers” to their workers

On March 17th, a few days before New York issued a shelter in place order, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority issued “travel papers” to their employees to prepare for a potential coronavirus curfew. The NY Daily News reports:

How Corona Could Backfire

How Corona Could Backfire

It looks pretty grim but corona still could have an upside.

So far, the most ‘tangible’ impact of the corona scare is everyone’s out of toilet paper.

But we may not be caught off guard again.

Having a month’s worth of staples on hand will make us less prone to panic next time around.

‘Prepperism’ has now reached main stream America.

Dried foods, water purifiers, wood stoves, generators, gardens, AND firearms, will be found now in countless homes.

‘Self-reliance’ is quite visible at gun stores now.

For with cops answering only critical calls, people see the need to rely on themselves—not the government—for protection.

Just look at the ‘education crisis’ brought on by corona.

Joe Biden has reemerged from an almost week-long disappearance to post a video on Twitter addressing the Trump administration's handling of the Covid-19 crisis, but his return has been greeted with mockery and concern.

Derailed Senate coronavirus stimulus bill delayed another day

There will be no new votes on the Senate’s coronavirus phase three bill Monday, delaying efforts to push through the nearly $2 trillion stimulus package.

“We will not be having any votes tonight,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said.

Fox News contributor Dr. Marc Siegel added his voice to a growing chorus of medical, political and economic experts who are warning that the U.S. must change its approach to the coronavirus pandemic or risk doing more harm to the country than the actual disease.

"About three or four weeks from now, we're going to back off of these draconian measures because we won't be able to stay together as a society if we don't," warned Siegel on Fox Nation's "Deep Dive" on Monday.

Suicides from depression will be ‘FAR GREATER’ than coronavirus deaths unless America reopens for business ‘soon’ – Trump

Our country was not built to be shut down.

Social distancing rules may be relaxed sometime ‘soon’ to prevent “tremendous death” from economic and social depression that could end up worse than the coronavirus itself, President Donald Trump said.

“People get tremendous anxiety and depression and you have suicide over things like this, when you have a terrible economy, you have death,” Trump said Monday at the White House daily press briefing, adding it would “definitely would be in far greater numbers than we’re talking about with regard to the virus.”

President Trump on economy: "We can't turn that off and think it's going to be wonderful. There'll be tremendous repercussions. There will be tremendous death...probably more death from that than anything that we're talking about with respect to the virus." pic.twitter.com/82WEb4HJ8z

Back to Work by March 30: A Coronavirus Imperative

China and Russia are open for business and working at close to capacity, as America shutters most all business and industry in states such as Pennsylvania, New York, California, New Jersey, and Connecticut. In many cases only select manufacturing companies are allowed to operate, which means most manufacturers will be short of parts and services necessary to produce goods.

Our leaders are creating an economic crisis and a major national security risk with limited data. The cure is far worse than any perceived impact by COVID-19. Our economy is both fragile and interdependent, an economic reality not understood by our leaders as they order mass closings of many states’ business and industry.

Coronavirus: Inslee announces mandatory statewide stay-at-home order

Medical Martial Law This is a lockdown,not a quarantine. You quarantine people who are sick,not a whole country or state.

How Long Will Americans Tolerate Corona-Madness?

A gentleman said this about Democrats/fake news media in an email, "...they are willing to destroy hard working people's jobs to accomplish their power play." This guy is spot on correct. This is why I regard Democrats'/fake news medias' gleeful spread of corona-madness so loathsome and evil.

Democrats and fake news media are 100% committed to destroying Trump, their greatest Nemesis. Collapsing the U.S. economy and even the loss of American lives is acceptable collateral damage in their quest for power to control every aspect of our lives. They believe corona is their highly sought-after kryptonite to kill We-the-Peoples' superman president.

Liberty and the Coronavirus: Not An Either/Or Proposition

Governments have always exploited crises to expand their powers.

It’s always difficult during a crisis for the government to address problems effectively while guarding against potential collateral damage to the freedoms Americans take for granted. That dilemma has become acute with the current coronavirus outbreak and the measures being taken to stem it. No one should doubt that this pandemic is a worrisome problem. Not only is the virus highly contagious, the mortality rate (especially among elderly victims and those with underlying health problems) is substantially higher than with influenza or similar diseases. That gap shows signs of narrowing, but there is little question that coronavirus is a serious health menace.

Of Viruses and Verities: Is Shutting Down the Nation Over Covid-19 Making Us LESS Safe?

There have been approximately 225,000 hospitalizations and 20,000 deaths. Ninety percent of the deceased are elderly, and 90 percent have underlying medical conditions.

I’m talking about the flu, by the way, and the toll it takes annually in just the United States alone.

As for the Wuhan virus, there are 18,170 confirmed cases in the U.S., with 250 confirmed deaths. Eighty percent of the deceased are elderly, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) tells us, and data from Italy show that 99 percent had underlying medical conditions. So it’s good we’re reacting to the disease the same way we do to the flu.

Except we’re not, of course.

Democrats sink Senate coronavirus stimulus plan to give cash to families

Congress was unable to reach an agreement Sunday on a $1 trillion-plus stimulus package that gives cash to families and keeps small businesses afloat during the COVID-19 pandemic, deepening fears of economic chaos as Rand Paul of Kentucky became the first U.S. senator to confirm he has contracted the disease.

Democrats balked at the Senate Republicans’ push to set aside $425 billion for loans to select companies and industries, dubbing it a “slush fund” for the Treasury to direct as it sees fit. They said the benefits are tilted toward corporations instead of working people.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, dared Democrats to reject the Senate measure in a procedural vote Sunday as tales of joblessness and woe poured in from every part of the nation.

Mike Bloomberg Campaign Transfers Record $18 Mln to DNC in Anti-Trump Effort

The giant injection for the Democratic Party was possible because the donation was not made by an individual, but a legal entity - the billionaire mogul’s campaign, which failed during Super Tuesday’s multiple-state vote and saw Bloomberg fall far behind many of the other presidential candidates.

Former billionaire Democratic candidate Mike Bloomberg is injecting a hefty sum of $18 million from his failed presidential campaign into the Democratic National Committee in the biggest such donation to date, the DNC announced.

The record transfer is seen as a sign of Bloomberg’s eager involvement in the anti-Trump campaign at large after quitting the presidential race in the wake of his poor showing on Super Tuesday, which this year fell on 3 March. Back then, he won only one US territory, while former Vice President Joe Biden became a frontrunner.

US Senators Dump Stocks with COVID-19 “Inside Information”

Following a closed-door briefing on the threat of spreading COVID-19 infections — before markets began crashing — at least five US senators cashed in based on inside information unavailable to the public.

The quintet includes Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Byrd, James Inhofe, Kelly Loeffler, Ron Johnson, and Diane Feinstein.

Most likely, other insiders in Washington and elsewhere sold equity holdings before public information about spreading COVID-19 infections caused financial, commodity, and other market turmoil.

Loeffler’s husband is chairman and CEO of the New York Stock Exchange — both co-owners of stocks they dumped, reportedly up to $3.1 million in late January and early February.

Reportedly with a net worth of around $500 million, Loeffler is the wealthiest US senator, a body known as a millionaires club.

Nancy Pelosi Nixes Bipartisan Talks on Coronavirus Package

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Sunday that she has decided to move forward with her own emergency coronavirus relief package.

Pelosi spoke just hours before the Senate was scheduled to take a procedural vote that would lead towards a final vote on a bipartisan economic relief package. The bill would provide economic relief after the coronavirus epidemic ravaged the country’s economy.

“From my standpoint, we’re apart,” she said.

Subsequently, Senate leaders decided to delay a planned vote to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Democrats Block Senate Coronavirus Package

Democrats blocked a coronavirus package on Sunday that would provide economic relief to businesses and Americans suffering from the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

The Senate GOP package failed, with 47 votes in favor and 47 against, which fell 13 votes short of what was necessary to advance the legislation.

Are You Ready To Have Your Civil Liberties Severely Restricted? Because That Is Where This Thing Is Headed…

One of the things that sets the United States apart from the rest of the world is that we are supposed to have certain civil liberties guaranteed to us by the U.S. Constitution. Of course the U.S. Constitution has been absolutely trampled on by many of our leaders for decades, but most Americans still deeply cherish the basic rights which are enshrined in our founding document. Unfortunately, many of our politicians are convinced that all of those rights can be taken away during a “national emergency”, and these days the bar for declaring a “national emergency” has been set very low.

Coronavirus death rates in South Korea reinforce a frightening pattern of how the disease affects older people

The report counts a total of 7,755 cases through March 11 and 60 deaths, for a total death rate of 0.77%. That is far lower than the reported death rates in several other countries. A major factor in that lower death rate could be the country's extremely thorough coronavirus-testing policies: Many milder cases included in South Korea's overall count might not be noticed in countries like the US, where testing is more sparse.

While South Korea reported 2,718 cases among patients under 30 as of March 11, there were zero deaths from COVID-19 among those younger patients. Only one patient between the ages of 30 and 39 had died, and only one patient in their 40s died.
