  1. Add this to the “least of your problems file” CBC reports:
  2. Leng Jun, hyper realistic paintings
  3. Memo: Some in US may not get stimulus checks until August https://abcnews.go.com/Business/wireStory/memo-us-stimulus-checks-august-69943511 it’s got nothing to do with the Democrooks, they just added more spending. .
  4. Will OPEC's biggest production cut in history be enough? It is looking more likely that OPEC and its coconspirator Russia will embark on the most significant oil production cut in history. Reports suggest that OPEC Plus -- that includes non-OPEC Russia -- will cut anywhere from 10 million to 15 million barrels of oil production a day. Russia reportedly is on board to cut output by 2 million barrels, easing concerns that they were not going to join cuts. Algeria's oil minister is saying that OPEC will decrease by 10 million barrels a day and Kuwait's oil minster is suggesting the cut could go as high as 15 million barrels a day. .
  5. Stocks surge as Fed rolls out $2.3T lending program U.S. equity markets surged Thursday morning after the Federal Reserve's plan to provide $2.3 trillion in lending to households and businesses overshadowed a surge in jobless claims. The Fed's initiative undergirds government efforts to combat fallout from the economic shutdown imposed to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Traders were also awaiting the outcome of a virtual meeting between Russia, Saudi Arabia and other key oil players on curbing output to boost prices that cratered amid a price war. remember, that’s not the financial market, that’s the equity market. The fed has entered the commercial market .
  6. This is... surprising Sean Ono Lennon ✔@seanonolennon Amazing Dems spend so much energy on so many things but were ultimately unable to come up with a candidate who can speak a single complete and coherent sentence. I have nothing against this man, he seems very nice, but he is clearly firing on few or possibly no cylinders .
  7. The Fed Will Pump Another $2.3 Trillion Into The Economy. Here’s Why This Time Is Different Topline: The Federal Reserve announced on Thursday that it will inject another $2.3 trillion to prop up the American economy through a series of unprecedented emergency initiatives that will extend its reach to small and mid-size businesses as well as state and municipal governments. The Fed will offer up to $500 billion in loans to states and municipalities through the purchase of municipal bonds and expand an existing corporate lending program (the Term Asset-Backed Securities Lending Facility) to include more classes of low-rated and riskier debt. Both of those actions are without precedent: the Fed has never exercised its ability to purchase muni bonds (to avoid picking and choosing the areas where it intervenes), and it has also been reluctant to wade into to lower-rated, riskier corporate credit markets. https://www.forbes.com/sites/sarahhansen/2020/04/09/the-fed-will-pump-another-23-trillion-into-the-economy/#1546d60c2f28 .
  8. NY: Cases Down 75%, Death Rate Flatlines ( sorry for that wretched pun ) Computer models predicted apocalypse, but the numbers are crap due to China’s lies. The number of people hospitalized across the United States as a result of the novel coronavirus illness (COVID-19) is reportedly only a fraction of what some health experts projected a few days ago. On Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told reporters that in his state alone, the epicenter of the viral outbreak in the United States, new coronavirus hospitalizations dropped by about 75 percent, from 1,427 four days ago to 358 on Sunday. Highlighting the drop in new hospitalizations in NY, the state hardest hit (131,239 cases; 4,758 deaths as of Monday) by the coronavirus, Alex Berenson, former New York Times reporter who has been following the U.S. outbreak closely, observed on Twitter on Monday: “It’s over, guys. It’s already over.” Well, I wouldn’t go that far. And I wouldn’t grasp this thin straw as a lifeline. But still, it’s good news for today, and might be an “anecdotal” indication of better news tomorrow. .@NYGovCuomo’s aide Jim Malatras says the projections are now showing that the state unlikely to need 110,000 beds for #Coronavirus. New projections show MUCH LOWER demand, near 20,000-30,000 range if the new chart is believed. — Jesse McKinley (@jessemckinley) April 6, 2020 That means the new projections for the number of hospital beds needed in NY are between about 70 and 80 percent lower than initially estimated. On Monday, Gov. Cuomo acknowledged that the drop in hospitalizations in combination with other signs, like the fatalities remaining flat for the second day in a row and a drop in intensive care unit (ICU) admissions, suggest a “possible flattening of the curve.” Statistical models attempting to predict the impact of the Chinese coronavirus, including the ones created by IHME, rely, at least in part, on polluted data from the Chinese Communist Party, Breitbart News confirmed last Friday. A growing number of experts – including Vice President Mike Pence and members of the Whitehouse Coronavirus Task Force that he leads – have questioned the legitimacy of China’s official coronavirus death toll and infection rate. Anonymous members of the U.S. intelligence community allegedly agree that China has been hiding the severity of the viral outbreak within its borders, under-reporting both total cases and fatalities linked to the disease, Bloomberg reported this week. The IHME predictions for New York also reflected a discrepancy between the institute’s forecasts and the actual number of hospitalizations. http://www.barking-moonbat.com/index.php/weblog/the_chicoms_even_screwed_up_our_numbers/ .
  9. gotta love Correia One thing I’ve noticed by watching but not participating in social media over the last few months, it doesn’t matter how complex a situation is, people like to act like they’ve got the answers. Even though there are multiple things to worry about, people feel compelled to pick one particular thing to freak out about, and by golly, they’re gonna try and shame anybody who has picked a different particular to freak out about. So if you’re having a come apart about one thing, somebody will yell at you that your thing is stupid, and you should be more worried about their thing instead which is obviously far more important than your dumb thing. For this epic battle our basic teams are: The Corona Virus is gonna kill us all, Trying to stop the Corona Virus is killing the economy, and Trying to stop #1 and/or #2 will result in government Tyranny/Stupidity/Overreach. the mandatory Orange Man Bad stage. This is where you get continually pummeled by morons on the left saying that everything bad in the world is Trump’s ignorant fault, while also being screeched at by morons on the right saying that everything good in the world is Trump’s benevolent doing. Luckily, both sides are idiots, and not every topic in the fu*^ing universe has to boil down to their idiot team sports. These boring idiots are compelled to make quite literally everything about Trump so just dodge out of the way and let them keep screaming at each other. https://monsterhunternation.com/2020/04/02/choose-your-freak-out-now-fight-global-pandemic-edition/
