Ron


food pantry in Southern California on Thursday drew so many people that the line of cars waiting for free groceries stretched about a mile
a haunting sign of how the coronavirus pandemic has hurt the working poor.

Hundreds of other people, many wearing trash bags to shelter from the rain,
arrived at the one-day grocery giveaway on foot, forming a blocks-long queue in Van Nuys

Organizers said they had enough groceries to hand out to more than 2,500 families,
with each receiving a 36-pound (16-kg) box of rice, lentils and other staples
as well as frozen chicken, oranges and other foods.

"I have six kids and it's difficult to eat.
My husband was working in construction but now we can't pay the rent,"

The COVID-19 pandemic has shut down nonessential businesses across the United States,
with more than 90% of Americans under some kind of stay-at-home order, depriving millions of a paycheck.

The northeast part of Los Angeles,
home to many working poor Latino families,
has been especially hard hit.

LA Regional Food Bank supplied the food donated outside Van Nuys City Hall.
such giveaways were becoming an increasingly important way to help feed people in need,
in Los Angeles County.

Thursday's food giveaway —
-- was open to anyone in need.

"This food saves me money because my little income goes to my rent,"
an independent contractor

"I haven't been working for three weeks.
I have a little money saved but I'm paying rent, gas, and cellphone bills.
I don't even know when we're going back to work,"

As he spoke, volunteers shouted constant reminders to those who walked up to maintain social distancing.

"For a lot of people, they are new to the situation of needing help and not knowing where to turn,"

many people were now suddenly filing for unemployment
and government food assistance programs.

"But that may take some time for them to get those benefits.

We want to do what we can to get food in the hands of families,
just so they can eat,"

Six THOUSAND families line up in their cars for hours at a food bank in San Antonio
as millions across the country turn to charity organizations
to keep from going hungry during coronavirus lockdown

• The San Antonio Food Bank distributed one million pounds of food to roughly 6,000 families on Thursday

• Aerial photos show thousands of cars lined up at Trader's Village for the massive food distribution event

• Each family left with enough food to fill two grocery carts, intended to last them the rest of the month

• 'The need is that great,' San Antonio Food Bank President said of the huge turnout

• 'We are moving through food so fast, this is our second big distribution this week, but there are hundreds of distributions that are going on all the time,'

GLOBALISM A DISASTER - After coronavirus, don't write off China as world's factory -

From: Ron

Probably true.Armstrongs model showing
China as the dominant economic power by 2032.

Not discussed are what Western populations will use to purchase these goods.

Since 2004 credit has replaced income in the US.

The bubble with unpayable debt is crashing.

If the Yuan eventually replaces the dollar as the world reserve currency

we then have unemployed Westerners with a currency losing value attempting to buy Chinese goods?

The euro is in even worse shape.

The European Federation may not survive

If the current mercantilest export model continues there will need to be resolution to these issues.

The issue is not related solely to China.

Germanys powerhouse export economy is also at play

Ron


After coronavirus, don't write off China as world's factory

The coronavirus pandemic has exposed the over-reliance of companies and governments on China for just about everything,

from cars to medicines.

But they will not be packing up and leaving China anytime soon.

investigate key members of the past Barack Obama administration on the Wuhan, China, laboratory, to see what they knew and when they knew it.

And then he mentioned Dr. Anthony Fauci specifically.

And then he accused the prior Team Obama of sending $3.7 million to the lab in 2014 

— at a time when that same Team Obama had banned the funding of any lab that was involved in virus experimentation.

Big Federal Government Victor in the Pandemic War

in line for their bailouts, are the
states
cities
counties.

certain to face falling tax revenue and expanded social demands,
leading to exploding deficits.

Their case: You bailed out the businesses and the hospitals.
What about us?

America's war on the coronavirus pandemic

the gargantuan state will almost surely emerge triumphant.

the major expenditures of the U.S. government are
Social Security,
Medicare and
Medicaid.
None of these programs will be reduced

if the Democrats win in November,
a great leap forward
– toward national health insurance.

Republicans are calling for a suspension until 2021 of payroll taxes used to finance Social Security and Medicare.
would also blow a huge hole in federal revenue and further enlarge the deficit and national debt.

Even before the virus struck with full force in March,
that deficit was projected at or near $1 trillion
— not only for fiscal year 2020 but for every year of the new decade.

prediction: never again see a federal budget deficit smaller than $1 trillion.

the $2 trillion lately voted on to save businesses and keep paychecks going to workers
will lift the deficit for 2020 above $3 trillion.

As of March 1, 2020, the nation was at full employment,
with the lowest jobless rates among women and minorities in our history.

Less than two months later,
26 million Americans are out of work.

These workers will soon begin picking up unemployment checks,
a new burden on the federal budget,
to which will be added the cost of expanding food stamps, rent supplements and welfare payments.

Consider education.
Harvard, with its $41 billion endowment,
was shamed into returning the $8.7 million in bailout money,

The stream of U.S. revenue going into higher education will not fall back to what it was before the pandemic

$1.5 trillion in student loan debt, vast sum
paid back by students who incurred the debt,
or piled atop the federal debt?

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell,
anticipating the mammoth bill for bailing out states and cities,
has suggested that governments be allowed to use bankruptcy laws to write down and write off their debts.
Probably not going to happen.

President Gerald Ford told New York City that Uncle Sam was not going to bail out the Big Apple.
"Ford to City: Drop Dead!"
was the famous headline splashed across the front page of the New York Daily News.
Ford recanted but did not recover.
His perceived callousness in the face of New York City's crisis
— though that fiscal crisis was entirely of the city's own making
— factored into his defeat by Jimmy Carter.

Donald Trump is not going to give Red State governors facing gaping budget deficits because of the coronavirus crisis the wet mitten across the face.

For his political future will be decided by those states.

Still, the cost of bailing them out promises to be enormous and to create a precedent for bailouts without end.

Then there is the clamor, already begun, from, and on behalf of, the Third World.
The IMF,
World Bank
and the West,
it is said,
have a moral obligation to replace revenue shortfalls these nations are facing from lost remittances from their workers in the developed world.

Talk of hundreds of billions of dollars in monetary transfers from the world's North to the world's South.

a belief in "pay as you go,"
and that "balanced budgets" are the ideal.
Today, appears irrelevant.

the one certain victor in the coronavirus pandemic war will likely be Big Government.

antibacterial properties of honey and its potential

the trend of the use of antimicrobial compounds from natural and renewable resources, natural antimicrobial compounds, particularly found in food and with potential biomedical applications, are of highest interest. In this context, the contribution by Brudzynski et al. to our special issue on "antimicrobial compounds from natural sources" deserves a special attention not only for giving insights into the natural antimicrobial components present in the honey, but also for exploiting their potential mechanism of action.

The antibacterial properties of honey have been well documented. The hydrogen peroxide has been described as the main compound responsible by the antibacterial activity of honeys. The hydrogen peroxide is a potent antimicrobial agent, produced mainly during glucose oxidation catalyzed by the action of the bee enzyme, glucose oxidase, which is introduced into honey during nectar harvesting by bees. The hydrogen peroxide concentration in honey is determined by the rate of its production by glucose oxidase and its destruction by catalases. Thus, the hydrogen peroxide levels in different honeys may differ considerably from honey to honey. In this study the authors re-examined the role of the hydrogen peroxide as component responsible for the antibacterial activity in honey.

The correlation between the endogenous hydrogen peroxide concentration and the inhibitory activity of bacterial growth by honey is well established. Indeed, honeys with a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide have higher antibacterial activity. However, honey is a complex chemical milieu composed of over 100 different compounds (including antioxidants and traces of transition metals), which can interact with the hydrogen peroxide, affecting the oxidizing activity of the honey. Consequently, this interaction may result in increase or decrease of the antimicrobial activity of honey.

Hydrogen peroxide alone is commonly used as disinfectant compound in medical equipment in hospitals. For disinfection of these materials high concentrations of H2O2 are used (0.8–8 M) and H2O2 antimicrobial activity has been verified against several medical important bacteria species, including Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Pseudomonas spp. and Bacillusspores. The bactericide activity of hydrogen peroxide is related to the accumulation of irreversible oxidative damages to the membrane, proteins, enzymes, and DNA.

The hydrogen peroxide content in honey is about 900-fold lower than the concentration commonly used for disinfecting medical equipments. In vitrostudies showed that the cell death of cultured mammalian, yeast and bacterial cells is observed with higher than 50 mM of H2O2 and was associated with chromosomal DNA degradation. However, this concentration is still about 50-fold higher than the concentration of hydrogen peroxide found in honey.

The authors hypothesized that the oxidizing action of honey's hydrogen peroxide on bacterial cells may be modulated by the presence of other bioactive molecules in honey and therefore, may differ from the action of hydrogen peroxide alone. Thus, the aim of the study was to critically analyze the effects of hydrogen peroxide on growth and survival of bacterial cells in order to analyze its putative role as a main component responsible for the antibacterial activity of honey.

Several natural and artificial honey samples were evaluated by the authors, using Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli as bacterial reference strains, to determine the correlation between the hydrogen peroxide concentration and the bacterial growth inhibition ability. Moreover, the treatment of honey samples with catalase allowed verifying the effects of the inhibition of oxidizing activity of the endogenous hydrogen peroxide on antibacterial activity and on DNA degradation of the bacterial cells.

The antibacterial susceptibility tests with exogenous H2O2 showed a concentration-dependent inhibition of E. coli and B. subtilis growth of about 90% at 1.25 mM and 2.5 mM, respectively. However, among the different honeys samples analyzed in this study, the concentration of hydrogen peroxide ranged from 0.248 ± 0.02 to 2.68 ± 0.04 mM. Endogenous H2O2 found in Canadian honeys inhibited the growth of E. coli in a concentration-dependent manner, and its MIC90 was two-fold higher compared to that determined for exogenous H2O2. In contrast, honey H2O2 was ineffective to inhibit B. subtilisgrowth, suggesting that other honey compounds or physical features, such as high osmolarity, were responsible for the antimicrobial properties of honeys. Paradoxical growth stimulation of B. subtilis was also observed at high honey dilutions (16-fold and over) and in the presence of high levels of H2O2. According to the authors, these differences could be related to difference in the bacterial susceptibility profile to the oxidative action of hydrogen peroxide and/or interference from other honey compounds.

Little is known about the role of the honey's hydrogen peroxide to bacterial cell death. Considering that the H2O2 triggered cell death of cultured mammalian, yeast, and bacterial cells was associated with chromosomal DNA degrades, the authors also examined the action of honey H2O2 in bacterial DNA degradation, which is a lethal event that ultimately kills the cell. In general, despite the presence of antioxidants in honey such as catalases, polyphenols, Maillard reaction products, and ascorbic acid that would lower the oxidative stress to cells, DNA degradation of E. coli cells exposed to exogenous or endogenous H2O2. In fact, the lower concentrations of honeys H2O2 required to effectively degrade chromosomal DNA led the authors to suggest that the oxidizing effect of H2O2 was augmented by other honey components such as transition metals (Fe, Cu) also commonly present in honeys.

In conclusion, this study represents an important step in understanding the antibacterial properties of honey. The findings described in this study not only revise the old views but also provide novel information on the role of hydrogen peroxide in the regulation of bacteriostatic and bactericidal activities of honey. The identification of the main components responsible for the antibacterial activity of honey and the mechanism of action underlying this effect bring new knowledge to the field that will greatly contribute to understand the mechanisms by which honey compounds lead to bacterial growth inhibition and bacterial death.

Doctors Speak Out | Political coup corona virus

Hospitals are empty and unless this lockdown is lifted,

we will actually see doctors being laid off

because there is nobody there and normal healthcare has been suspended.

The real public health crisis is the DENIAL of regular healthcare. I

have had friends and family whose surgeries were postponed indefinitely.

I have a cousin who was a nurse working with COVID-19 patients and she got infected.

She then passed it to her husband who is 67 and overweight.

He had to go to the hospital where they administered the Malaria drug everyone tries to criticize Trump for

and his condition was reversed

and he returned home after two days.


They have intentionally been destroying people's jobs

and this statistic only covers those entitled to file for unemployment.

Many times that unemployment number does not cover those who do not work full time from hair salons, waitresses/waiters, and retail sales.

Part-term workers are not covered.

What these people on the left are doing to simply win an election amounts to a political coup.

The Democrats are now forming a commission to investigate Trump again demonstrating how corrupt this system has become.

The Democrats now have a vested interest in prolonging the pain to simply win the election in November.

I do not wish to live the world these people are advocating by keeping us locked down to destroy the economy where the unemployment was a record low since 1960s just to win an election.

This is no longer about health, it is just about politics.

They are risking people's lives denying normal healthcare

and destroying their futures by wiping out small business.

US Intel Know About the ‘Chinese’ Virus?



Hybrid War 2.0 on China, 
a bipartisan U.S. operation, is already reaching fever pitch.

 Its 24/7 full spectrum infowar arm blames China for everything coronavirus-related 
– doubling as a diversionist tactic against any informed criticism of woeful American unpreparedness.

Hysteria predictably reigns. 
And this is just the beginning.

A deluge of lawsuits is imminent – such as the one in the Southern District of Florida entered by Berman Law Group 
(linked to the Democrats) and 

Lucas-Compton (linked to the Republicans). 

In a nutshell: China has to shell out tons of cash. 

To the tune of at least $1.2 trillion, which happens to be – by surrealist irony – 
the amount of U.S. Treasury bills held by Beijing, all the way to $20 trillion, 
claimed by a lawsuit in Texas

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2020/04/no_author/what-did-u-s-intel-really-know-about-the-chinese-virus/

Moreover, the Israeli disclosure supports 
what's nothing less than extraordinary:

 U.S. intel already knew 
about Sars-Cov-2 roughly one month before the first confirmed cases detected by doctors in a Wuhan hospital. 

That could only have happened if U.S. intel knew, for sure, 
about a previous chain of events that would necessarily lead to the "mysterious outbreak" in Wuhan. 


how could U.S. intel have known about a contagion one month before Chinese doctors detected an unknown virus?

Mike "We Lie, We Cheat, We Steal" Pompeo
may have given away the game when he said, on the record,
 that Covid-19 was a "live exercise". 

Adding to the ABC News and Israeli reports, the only possible, logical conclusion is that the Pentagon 
– and the CIA – 

knew ahead of time a pandemic would be inevitable.


That's the smokin' gun.

 And now the full weight of the United States government is covering all bases by proactively, and retroactively, blaming China.


Endgame: Forced Vaccinations and Total Control and Surveillance Over Our Lives



hype that all of these government lockdowns, 
a ruined economy, 
suppression of our liberties 
and a total disruption of our way of life 

are for the purpose of saving lives has drunk some serious kool aid. 

We are supposed to believe that the same people who are enthusiastically promoting the killing of over 60 million unborn babies without so much as a modicum of conscience

 are somehow crying crocodile tears of compassion because people (including babies) MIGHT die from a flu-like virus? 

What poppycock!


Secretary of State Mike Pompeo admitted that the corona scare was a government exercise 

(read: a practice run-through for something bigger).

 It was an exercise for total government control over our lives. 

This has been the agenda of Big Government statists in both political parties for decades. 

With constant fearmongering and hysteria from Big Government hacks in the mainstream media over the coronavirus,

 the power elite have taken the 

American people further down the road to serfdom and slavery than any previous attempt

Fauci has been at the forefront of AIDS vaccine research for decades.
When AIDS surfaced in 1981, he, like many other scientists and physicians, was drawn to the mysterious illness, which has now claimed more than 25 million lives—more than the populations of Ghana or Taiwan.
Since 1984, he has served as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the US National Institutes of Health (NIH).
He has been a key advisor to US presidents on global AIDS issues
and was a leading architect of the US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
Born and raised above a pharmacy in Brooklyn, New York, he earned a medical degree from Cornell Medical College.
Fauci, a marathoner, avid fisherman, and father of three, has invited AIDS activists into his home.
Last year, he presided over a $4.4 billion budget
roughly a third of it dedicated to HIV/AIDS research.
He ranks among the top 10 most cited HIV/AIDS researchers in the world and has received numerous awards,
including the Presidential Medal of Honor for leading the fight against HIV/AIDS

Trump: Live by the Oil, Die by the Oil - Very Critical Of Trump

The article is correct.
Trump is an idiot tool of globalist bankers who control / eliminate the sheeple by financing
the oil industrial complex that enables:
the military industrial complex,
the medical pharmacy industrial complex,
the agribusiness junk food industrial complex,
the auto truck plane sitting industrial complex,
the sick building, tool, clothes, furniture industrial complex,
the indoor electronics disinformation industrial complex,
the immigrant migrant slavery child rape industrial complex,
the sitting entertainment ball game concert industrial complex,
the travel hotel casino cruise complex,
the drugs gangs guns industrial complex.
etc. etc.
All Extermination Industrial Complexes:
That destroy the minds and bodies of addicted deranged sheeple so they get sick, shot, controlled until they die off to be replaced by Communists.

As I said 20 years ago, outlaw all imports and exports of oil.
Use what we drill here in the USA only.
Keep as much oil in the ground as possible in the USA.
Let the rest of the world fight over what gets done over there.

Bankruptcy, elimination of stupid ideas is essential to the functioning of the free market system.
Even Biden figured out that the Trump Bailout is the same as the Obama Bailout:
We are paying to bail out the same bastards twice!
Bankers!

Politicians should not prop up failed ideas with taxpayer money,
or money printed by the Treasury Federal Reserve that will sooner or later show up as inflation,
or quality drop in products purchased.

Eliminate sales and income taxes for those earning less than $100,000 per year.

Go back to financing government by taxes on imports and exports as was done before the income tax.

From the very beginning I've been a staunch critic of President Trump's "Energy Dominance" policy.

And I was so for a myriad of reasons, but mostly because it was stupid.

Not just stupid, monumentally stupid. Breathtakingly stupid.

And I don't say this as someone who hates Trump without reservation.

In fact, I continue to hope he will wake up one day and stop being the Donald Trump I know and be the Donald Trump he needs to be.

I don't have Trump Derangement Syndrome of any sort.
Neither MAGApede nor Q-Tard, an Orange Man Bad cultist or NPC Soy Boy,

I see Trump for what he is – a well-intentioned, if miseducated man with severe personal deficiencies which manifest themselves in occasionally brilliant but mostly disastrous behavior.

Energy Dominance was always a misguided and Quixotic endeavor.
Why?
Because Trump could never turn financial engineering a shale boom into a sustainable advantage
over lower-cost producers like
Russia and the
OPEC nations.

The policy of blasting open the U.S. oil spigots to produce a production boom built on an endless supply of near-zero cost credit
was always going to run into a wall of oversupply and not enough demand.

The dramatic collapse of U.S. oil prices in the futures markets which saw the May contract close on April 20th at $-40.57 per barrel
is the Shale Miracle hitting the fan of low demand
and leaving the producers and consumers in a state which can only happen thanks to biblical levels of government intervention.

Stupidity by bankers.
A broken market.

The next morning, ever needing to look like the good guy, Trump tweets out:

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump
We will never let the great U.S. Oil & Gas Industry down.
I have instructed the Secretary of Energy and Secretary of the Treasury to formulate a plan which will make funds available
so that these very important companies and jobs will be secured long into the future!

It's clear from this statement that Trump is ready to throw more trillions at the oil industry
to keep it and the millions of jobs from disappearing as he does what he always does when confronted with a real problem,
doubles down on the behavior that caused it in the first place.

Politicians, even the best ones, are ultimately vandals. T
hey have no other tool than to reallocate scarce capital towards their ends
rather than that demanded by the market.

And the main reason why Trump was never going to win the Energy Dominance War he started
was because the world doesn't want the type and kind of oil the U.S. produces at the quantities needed to "Win!"

Ultra-light sweet crude coming from the
Bakken,
Eagle Ford and
Permian
simply isn't that high in demand for export.
It's of limited usage.
And, in the end, if the price is right enough,
offering oil for sale in 'not-dollars' only makes that demand curve even more elastic.

The collapse in oil prices which Trump is desperate to stop
won't simply because Trump stands there like King Canute, arms outstretched.

He and his terrible energy policy stand naked now that the tide has gone out.

And the reason for this is simple.
There is more to the world economy than money.
Money is what makes the economy work but it, in and of itself, is incapable of creating wealth.
All money does is act as a means to express our needs and desires at the moment of the trade.

Trump's vandalizing the world's energy markets for the past three and a half years now comes back to bite him.
To prop up surging U.S. production he has:

Supported a disastrous war against the people of Yemen

Repurposed U.S. troops clinging to positions in Syria while stealing their oil

Nearly started a shooting war with Iran…. Twice.

Embargoed Venezuela, stole its money, attempted a failed coup
and brought even more support to President Maduro from Russia and China.

Spent billions pointing missiles at Russia via NATO.

Supported a vicious war to prevent the secession of the Donbass.

Delayed the construction of Nordstream 2.

Sowed chaos enough to set Turkey to claiming the Eastern Mediterranean while fighting a losing war in Libya.

Started a massive trade war with China.

Spent trillions throwing the U.S. budget deficit for 2020 out beyond 20% of the U.S.'s 2019 GDP.

None of these acts are defensible as anything other than immoral and counterproductive.

Having antagonized literally more than three-quarters of the world with this insanity,
Trump will now turn his destructive gaze on the very people he purports to serve,
the American people.

Saving jobs through subsidies is capital destructive.
It doesn't matter who does it, Trump, Putin, Xi or FDR.

If Trump tariffs on imports it will only keep the cost of energy for Americans higher than it should be at a time when they need it to be as cheap as possible.

The incentive to improve performance by these companies, will not happen, such as:
shutter expensive wells,
default on debt
or shift capital away from the unproductive

The healthy cleansing of bankruptcy is averted.

The vultures who profited on the way up will not go bankrupt
because the bust is avoided
and those that were prudent waiting for this moment
will not be rewarded with the reins of the means of production.

And again, we see another one-way trade for Wall St.

All Trump will do here is entrench the very powers that he thinks he's been fighting,
destroying small businesses,
nationalizing, in effect, whole swaths of the U.S. economy
and setting up the day when everyone else around the world shrugs when he barks.

Because the net effect has been to see the rise in more of the oil trade conducted in currencies other than the U.S. dollar.

That trend will continue in a deflating price environment
where the need to service dollar-denominated debt
is soaking up the supply of dollars faster than the Fed can monetize the debt issued by the U.S. Treasury.

The oil trade will shift from dollars.
Dollars will be used to pay off debt,
the world will decouple from the dollar
and all those dollars currently hoarded overseas
and whose demand today will be supply tomorrow
will ensure the U.S. economy suffers the worst kind of depression,
one of rising commodity prices,
falling asset prices
and falling wages.

So, Trump will continue to be The Master of the Seen, choosing
to ignore the unseen effects of propping up firms that should rightly go the way of all bad ideas, like Marxism.

The U.S. had a grenade dropped on its budget.
It looks like a nuclear bomb,
but that's only because of the continued arrogance and necessity of politicians, like Trump,
needing to be 'seen' doing something
caused far more damage than it would have if they hadn't intervened in the first place.

The adage, "never let a crisis go to waste," is apropos here.

Politicians use the cover of crisis to act.

They have to be 'seen' acting rather than not.
Trump is acutely aware of this because he truly can't stand criticism.

A man without principles,
Trump acts mostly out of his need to deflect criticism
and be 'seen' by his base as their champion.

But no, Trump outs himself as the biggest Marxist of all time,
defending the workers
while robbing them of their future through the destruction of their real wealth.

His policy mistakes become our real problems.

And he compounded those problems by listening to the medical complex vultures about COVID-19
and now he's trapped
but everyone else will pay the price.

He is someone without the sense or the understanding that sometimes the best thing to do is admit defeat,
reverse course
and put down the scepter of power.
But Trump doesn't know how to do that.
He doesn't know how to actually lead.

Energy Dominance will turn into an Energy Albatross
and it will weigh on Trump's neck in his second term
that will see him leave office reviled as the great destroyer of not only the U.S.'s wealth,
but more importantly, its standing in the world.

Bigger government, bailouts, the Certain Victor in the Pandemic War

Government spending will be increasing due to huge demands to fight the war.

You will eat more corn, soy, beans, rice, wheat…. plant based diet.

Oil states clobbered - Texas Alaska….
Beef states clobbered - Texas

Your checks from the government may be cut to give money to the new needs.
pensions,
social security,
pay,
welfare,
medicare,
medicaid,


Non essential jobs will be reduced,
which is most of the economy
- tourisms, cooks, maids, drivers, lawn, most construction, planes, auto, retail, malls, …
Much of this employment is small business.

Essential jobs are often government - medical, police, fire, teachers, ..

Or big business, banks, food plants, delivery, shipping, trucks, trains.
Most of which will report less profits.
Planes are uneconomic compared to trucks, trains.

Government will borrow more to pay essential wages and supplies.
Prices on many essentials such as food, gas, oil will drop due to oversupply.
Catastrophic deflation.

Prices on non-essentials, luxuries may not happen, not get reported.
Some may inflate, others deflate.

Huge economic changes.
Financial bankruptcies still in the future but will happen.
Many businesses will go bankrupt or limp along with few profits.

The federal government will bailout some, for the short term,
but many activities are uneconomic and bailout envy will prevent federal government from bailing out forever.
Inflation will happen on some products, especially luxury items.

Big Federal Government Victor in the Pandemic War

in line for their bailouts, are the
states
cities
counties.

certain to face falling tax revenue and expanded social demands,
leading to exploding deficits.

Their case: You bailed out the businesses and the hospitals.
What about us?

America's war on the coronavirus pandemic

the gargantuan state will almost surely emerge triumphant.

the major expenditures of the U.S. government are
Social Security,
Medicare and
Medicaid.
None of these programs will be reduced

if the Democrats win in November,
a great leap forward
– toward national health insurance.

Republicans are calling for a suspension until 2021 of payroll taxes used to finance Social Security and Medicare.
would also blow a huge hole in federal revenue and further enlarge the deficit and national debt.

Even before the virus struck with full force in March,
that deficit was projected at or near $1 trillion
— not only for fiscal year 2020 but for every year of the new decade.

prediction: never again see a federal budget deficit smaller than $1 trillion.

the $2 trillion lately voted on to save businesses and keep paychecks going to workers
will lift the deficit for 2020 above $3 trillion.

As of March 1, 2020, the nation was at full employment,
with the lowest jobless rates among women and minorities in our history.

Less than two months later,
26 million Americans are out of work.

These workers will soon begin picking up unemployment checks,
a new burden on the federal budget,
to which will be added the cost of expanding food stamps, rent supplements and welfare payments.

Consider education.
Harvard, with its $41 billion endowment,
was shamed into returning the $8.7 million in bailout money,

The stream of U.S. revenue going into higher education will not fall back to what it was before the pandemic

$1.5 trillion in student loan debt, vast sum
paid back by students who incurred the debt,
or piled atop the federal debt?

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell,
anticipating the mammoth bill for bailing out states and cities,
has suggested that governments be allowed to use bankruptcy laws to write down and write off their debts.
Probably not going to happen.

President Gerald Ford told New York City that Uncle Sam was not going to bail out the Big Apple.
"Ford to City: Drop Dead!"
was the famous headline splashed across the front page of the New York Daily News.
Ford recanted but did not recover.
His perceived callousness in the face of New York City's crisis
— though that fiscal crisis was entirely of the city's own making
— factored into his defeat by Jimmy Carter.

Donald Trump is not going to give Red State governors facing gaping budget deficits because of the coronavirus crisis the wet mitten across the face.

For his political future will be decided by those states.

Still, the cost of bailing them out promises to be enormous and to create a precedent for bailouts without end.

Then there is the clamor, already begun, from, and on behalf of, the Third World.
The IMF,
World Bank
and the West,
it is said,
have a moral obligation to replace revenue shortfalls these nations are facing from lost remittances from their workers in the developed world.

Talk of hundreds of billions of dollars in monetary transfers from the world's North to the world's South.

a belief in "pay as you go,"
and that "balanced budgets" are the ideal.
Today, appears irrelevant.

the one certain victor in the coronavirus pandemic war will likely be Big Government.

honey disinfectant. antibacterial properties of honey and its potential

Need IQ test for news media pseudo pundits.
High stakes testing, testing, testing at least once per month.
Put test score on their face mask.
Fire them if below 100.
Biden would flunk due to dementia.

Honey can be consumed internally.
Or applied externally to wounds, etc.

Disinfectants will not kill you if used properly.

Antibiotics will not kill you usually if used correctly.
Antibiotics are often used externally, in soaps,
or consumed internally under MD prescriptions.

Natural probably better than artificial, and cheaper, depending.

Blanket statements often incorrect.
Depends on circumstances.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3504486/

antibacterial properties of honey and its potential

the trend of the use of antimicrobial compounds from natural and renewable resources, natural antimicrobial compounds, particularly found in food and with potential biomedical applications, are of highest interest. In this context, the contribution by Brudzynski et al. to our special issue on "antimicrobial compounds from natural sources" deserves a special attention not only for giving insights into the natural antimicrobial components present in the honey, but also for exploiting their potential mechanism of action.

The antibacterial properties of honey have been well documented. The hydrogen peroxide has been described as the main compound responsible by the antibacterial activity of honeys. The hydrogen peroxide is a potent antimicrobial agent, produced mainly during glucose oxidation catalyzed by the action of the bee enzyme, glucose oxidase, which is introduced into honey during nectar harvesting by bees. The hydrogen peroxide concentration in honey is determined by the rate of its production by glucose oxidase and its destruction by catalases. Thus, the hydrogen peroxide levels in different honeys may differ considerably from honey to honey. In this study the authors re-examined the role of the hydrogen peroxide as component responsible for the antibacterial activity in honey.

The correlation between the endogenous hydrogen peroxide concentration and the inhibitory activity of bacterial growth by honey is well established. Indeed, honeys with a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide have higher antibacterial activity. However, honey is a complex chemical milieu composed of over 100 different compounds (including antioxidants and traces of transition metals), which can interact with the hydrogen peroxide, affecting the oxidizing activity of the honey. Consequently, this interaction may result in increase or decrease of the antimicrobial activity of honey.

Hydrogen peroxide alone is commonly used as disinfectant compound in medical equipment in hospitals. For disinfection of these materials high concentrations of H2O2 are used (0.8–8 M) and H2O2 antimicrobial activity has been verified against several medical important bacteria species, including Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Pseudomonas spp. and Bacillusspores. The bactericide activity of hydrogen peroxide is related to the accumulation of irreversible oxidative damages to the membrane, proteins, enzymes, and DNA.

The hydrogen peroxide content in honey is about 900-fold lower than the concentration commonly used for disinfecting medical equipments. In vitrostudies showed that the cell death of cultured mammalian, yeast and bacterial cells is observed with higher than 50 mM of H2O2 and was associated with chromosomal DNA degradation. However, this concentration is still about 50-fold higher than the concentration of hydrogen peroxide found in honey.

The authors hypothesized that the oxidizing action of honey's hydrogen peroxide on bacterial cells may be modulated by the presence of other bioactive molecules in honey and therefore, may differ from the action of hydrogen peroxide alone. Thus, the aim of the study was to critically analyze the effects of hydrogen peroxide on growth and survival of bacterial cells in order to analyze its putative role as a main component responsible for the antibacterial activity of honey.

Several natural and artificial honey samples were evaluated by the authors, using Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli as bacterial reference strains, to determine the correlation between the hydrogen peroxide concentration and the bacterial growth inhibition ability. Moreover, the treatment of honey samples with catalase allowed verifying the effects of the inhibition of oxidizing activity of the endogenous hydrogen peroxide on antibacterial activity and on DNA degradation of the bacterial cells.

The antibacterial susceptibility tests with exogenous H2O2 showed a concentration-dependent inhibition of E. coli and B. subtilis growth of about 90% at 1.25 mM and 2.5 mM, respectively. However, among the different honeys samples analyzed in this study, the concentration of hydrogen peroxide ranged from 0.248 ± 0.02 to 2.68 ± 0.04 mM. Endogenous H2O2 found in Canadian honeys inhibited the growth of E. coli in a concentration-dependent manner, and its MIC90 was two-fold higher compared to that determined for exogenous H2O2. In contrast, honey H2O2 was ineffective to inhibit B. subtilisgrowth, suggesting that other honey compounds or physical features, such as high osmolarity, were responsible for the antimicrobial properties of honeys. Paradoxical growth stimulation of B. subtilis was also observed at high honey dilutions (16-fold and over) and in the presence of high levels of H2O2. According to the authors, these differences could be related to difference in the bacterial susceptibility profile to the oxidative action of hydrogen peroxide and/or interference from other honey compounds.

Little is known about the role of the honey's hydrogen peroxide to bacterial cell death. Considering that the H2O2 triggered cell death of cultured mammalian, yeast, and bacterial cells was associated with chromosomal DNA degrades, the authors also examined the action of honey H2O2 in bacterial DNA degradation, which is a lethal event that ultimately kills the cell. In general, despite the presence of antioxidants in honey such as catalases, polyphenols, Maillard reaction products, and ascorbic acid that would lower the oxidative stress to cells, DNA degradation of E. coli cells exposed to exogenous or endogenous H2O2. In fact, the lower concentrations of honeys H2O2 required to effectively degrade chromosomal DNA led the authors to suggest that the oxidizing effect of H2O2 was augmented by other honey components such as transition metals (Fe, Cu) also commonly present in honeys.

In conclusion, this study represents an important step in understanding the antibacterial properties of honey. The findings described in this study not only revise the old views but also provide novel information on the role of hydrogen peroxide in the regulation of bacteriostatic and bactericidal activities of honey. The identification of the main components responsible for the antibacterial activity of honey and the mechanism of action underlying this effect bring new knowledge to the field that will greatly contribute to understand the mechanisms by which honey compounds lead to bacterial growth inhibition and bacterial death.

Elbe Day 75th anniversary is a powerful reminder that Russian-American friendship IS POSSIBLE

Elbe Day, when the soldiers of the Red Army 5th Guards,

commanded by General Alexey Zhadov,

and the US First Army of General Courtenay Hodges

met up at the famous German river, was not only an important step towards the ending of World War II and the defeat of the Nazis,

it also held out the hope of a better future and close superpower collaboration after that conflict was over.

The sight of American and Russian troops with their arms around each other would horrify

foaming-at-the-mouth Russophobic neocons today.

But it really happened.

The Americans actually arrived on the Elbe weeks before the Soviet troops did.

They could have gone on to Berlin themselves, but waited.

"Once they recognized us, we were all buddies," one Cpl James J. McDonnell recalled.

"We couldn't speak Russian, and they couldn't speak English, but the hugs and handshakes said it all."

The COLD WAR was partially,

but not entirely, a PsychOp to maintain and promote funding for the Military Industrial Complex …

Seven-Step Path from Pandemic to Totalitarianism



if it was planned in advance, 

billions of people around the globe are being forced step by rapid step into a radically different way of life, 

one that involves far less personal, physical and financial freedom and agency.

Here is the template for rolling this out.

STEP 1

A new virus starts to spread around the world. 

The World Health Organization (WHO) declares a pandemic. 

International agencies, public-health officials, politicians, media and other influential voices 

fan fear by focusing almost exclusively on the contagiousness of the virus and the rising numbers of cases,

 and by characterizing the virus as extremely dangerous.

Within a few days governments at national and local levels also declare states of emergency. 

At lightning speed they impose lock-down measures that confine most people to their homes
 – starting with
closing schools – and shut down much of the global economy. 

World markets implode.

The stunned, fearful and credulous public 
– convinced over the previous few years that their bodies do not have the natural ability to react to pathogens 

by producing antibodies that confer long-lasting immunity – largely complies willingly.

The first weekly virtual class on local emergency and crisis responses to COVID19 is held for mayors and other city officials around the world.

Coordinated by a handful of American organizations in the academic, medical, financial, political and transportation spheres,

 the classes feature guests ranging from Barack Obama to Bill Gates.


Trump and China: a Love Story

Correct.
Very bad mess.
Communist China.


From Lothar,

Ann Coulter: Trump and China: a Love Story


Liberals claim to be appalled that Trump didn't issue his stay-at-home protocols for the Wuhan virus back in January or early February.

What do you think the media's reaction would have been
if Trump had started babbling about a viral pandemic in the middle of his impeachment trial ?

Let's see. On Jan. 28, Trump released his long-awaited "Middle East Peace Plan,"
 which was immediately denounced by everyone except Jared Kushner and Sheldon Adelson. 

Still, the last 1 million Middle East Peace Plans led to tons of think pieces, analyses and arguments.

Here's how Trump's "Peace Plan" was reported:

"Tonight, impeached and indicted. 
Seems like a good time for a distraction: 
Their plan for peace in the Middle East." — Becky Anderson, CNN, Jan. 28, 2020

"The Trump administration has dubbed it the deal of the century. 
Critics see it as a PR stunt to distract from Trump's impeachment." 
— Michele Kelemen, NPR's "All Things Considered," Jan. 28, 2020

"Many analysts and supporters of a two-state solution to the [Middle East] conflict 
have called the promised rollout of the plan this week a distraction from Mr. Trump's impeachment trial." 
— the New York Times, Jan. 25, 2020

There are plenty of reasons to attack Trump for the virus sweeping our country, 
but the media are mad at him for not doing something that would have been absurd:
 shutting down the country when there wasn't a single Wuhan flu death in the nation and the media had barely mentioned it.

In fact, the first time most news consumers heard about the latest Chinese coronavirus 
was when liberals attacked Trump for shutting down travel from China at the end of January.

The Times responded with an op-ed titled, 
"Who Says It's Not Safe to Travel to China?" 
bemoaning "xenophobic rhetoric and the building of walls."

Sen. Bernie Sanders mocked the ban at a CNN town hall debate, saying, 
"I don't know you have to stop travel from China," 
but Trump likes "to build walls … to separate us from other people."

Politico cited "a growing chorus of public health experts"
 who warned that the China travel ban could 
"stigmatiz[e] people of Asian descent."

The Nation magazine reported that the risk to Americans from the Wuhan coronavirus was "low" 
and accused Trump of playing to
 "well-worn, racist tropes that depict Chinese people as dirty and disease-carrying."

So go screw yourselves, media.

On the other hand, 
Trump does deserve a lot of the blame for the Wuhan virus by keeping 
— NONE of his promises on China. 
This, the media will never mention.

During the campaign, Trump sure talked a good game. 

He said, "We can't continue to allow China to rape our country."

He vowed to put tariffs on their goods and bring manufacturing home.

Then he got elected, and Jared Kushner, Gary Cohn, and Trump's other salt-of-the-earth advisers told him tariffs were a bad idea. 

So he imposed no tariffs for two long years and, today, 
almost all our pharmaceuticals, 
face masks and other crucial supplies are still being made in China.

On the bright side, 
China fast-tracked all of Ivanka's trademarks!

Trump has allowed hundreds of thousands of Chinese students to keep attending American universities. 

He can't stop gushing about the H-1B workers. 

In 2018, Trump tweeted a warm welcome to H1-B visa holders,

 promising them "a path to citizenship" 

and heaping praise on these "talented and highly skilled people" taking American jobs.

Norman Matloff, University of California, Davis, computer science professor recently wrote:

"Here is something you won't read elsewhere: 

Silicon Valley leads the SF Bay Area in COVID-19 cases — leads by FAR ….

"Silicon Valley, of course, is home to very large numbers of immigrant engineers from China, 
who have the means to make frequent trips to China to visit family, 
especially during Chinese New Year,
 when the virus started to spread like mad within China and started to do so in the U.S."

As we now know, the first two Wuhan flu deaths in America were in … Silicon Valley.

"Birth tourism" has also continued apace under Trump, 
with tens of thousands of pregnant Chinese ladies flying to America every year
 for the sole purpose of giving birth to an anchor baby,
 who will then be used to bring the whole family here.

There's one way to stop it, 
and Trump could do it tomorrow. 

Sign an executive order ending the anchor baby scam.

 Not say he's going to sign it, as he does whenever he wants to gin up the base. 

Actually sign it.

The Supreme Court has never ruled that the children born to illegal aliens or tourists are citizens,
 for the simple reason that that would be insane. 

The 14th amendment is about slavery, 
as the court has repeatedly held, 
not Chinese birth tourists or pregnant Mexicans.

But he won't do it. 
Ivanka needs her trademarks 
and Goldman might give Jared a job ! 

 Sorry about that Wuhan flu, America.
