Rapid Round Up
- China suffers worst economic drop since the 70s. Their economy shrank 6.8% for the first quarter of this year compared to the same time last year.
- A NJ electrical contractor had access to a storage area containing N95 masks destined for medical care workers. The contractor decided to steal 1,600 of them but didn’t make it far.
- The U.S. State Dept. sent a formal request to China to expedite inspections of outgoing PPE shipments. The State Dept. said, “The U.S. Government has raised these concerns with (China). We have requested that China revise its new requirements to allow the expeditious export of vital PPE to the United States.”
- FEMA shipped 19.1 million tablets of hydroxychloroquine from its strategic stockpile to cities across the nation who are prescribing the drug to patients battling COVID-19.
- Israel is on the verge of ending its lockdown but what comes next is unheard of and that’s the potential of a 4th election in a year as there hasn’t been an agreement for a long-term majority to govern the nation.
- U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman announced today that the U.S. was giving $5m to Palenstinian hospitals to help combat COVID-19 after years of witholding aid.
- Russia conducted a military space test on April 15th by launching a missle designed to take out satellites orbiting in space. This type of tech will destabilize political agreements around the world and will usher in a new cold war.
- Michigan residents have now taken to the courts to overturn many of Governor’s Whitmere’s executive orders. The governor is facing a recall petition; public rebellion by sheriffs and a growing backlash by members of her own party.
Trump Speaks With G-7 Leaders Regarding WHO
The United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Japan spoke with President Trump today in a teleconference regarding the actions of the World Health Organization over the past few months. The White House said, “The leaders recognized that the G7 nations annually contribute more than a billion dollars to the World Health Organization, and much of the conversation centered on the lack of transparency and chronic mismanagement of the pandemic by the WHO.” Trump said, [The WHO is] “severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus.” The G-7 leaders agreed to a full review and reform recommendations.
Sheriff’s Open Rebellion of MI Governor Whitmer
Sheriffs of Mason, Benzie, Manistee, and LeeLanau counties of Michigan penned an open letter of defiance to Governor Whitmer’s executive orders that are some of the most horrendous lock down orders in the nation. The letter states in part, “While we understand her desire to protect the public, we question some restrictions that she has imposed as overstepping her executive authority. She has created a vague framework of emergency laws that only confuse Michigan citizens…As a result, we will not have strict enforcement of these orders. We will deal with every case as an individual situation and apply common sense in assessing the apparent violation…We believe that we are the last line of defense in protecting [our citizens’] civil liberties.”
“We want to connect people who may have interacted with harmful misinformation about the virus with the truth from authoritative sources in case they see or hear these claims again off of Facebook” —Guy Rosen, Facebook’s vice president of integrity. The problem is that Facebook is sending users to WHO. The World Health Organization is at the epicenter of a growing storm since they aided China in spreading misinformation about the virus. This might be the ultimate definition of irony!
NY Extends Lockdown
New York has extended its lockdown until May 15th as several other northeastern states follow suit. However, its not sure if the citizenry will cooperate with these orders given that many counties have less than 10 cases and no deaths. Court battles are expected to light up when other states open up in the next two weeks, leaving behind counties in NY and other states who aren’t experiencing a pandemic.
New Jersey officials were in absolute shock when a request for 25 body bags came in. Andover Subacute and Rehab Center is at the center of a firestorm after learning that they created a makeshift morgue with 68 dead bodies before informing anyone of their need for help. Forty staff members have tested positive for COVID-19 with two nurses lost. The governor has asked for an investigation into the staff’s actions.
The world has turned upside down. Old folks are sneaking out of the house, and their kids are yelling at them to stay indoors!
Apocalyptic Level Locusts
Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan are on the verge of a biblical wave of locusts that are estimated to be 20 times larger than what they have already witnessed. In late March early rains laid the ground work for locusts to stay in place, mature and lay eggs. These eggs will hatch into hopper bands that will coincide with the harvest season late June or July. We are on the verge of witnessing mass starvation if these predictions come true.
99 Year Old WW2 Vet Raises Millions
99 year old ww2 UK vet Tom Moore challenged himself to walk 100 laps of his backyard to raise 1,000 pounds for UK health workers by his 100th birthday at the end of April. Instead he has raised $2.8 million due to his energetic personality. Moore served in campaigns in India and Myanmar during WW2.
Scathing Letter To China
More than 100 political leaders and China experts from around the world wrote an open letter to the Chinese Communist leaders. It reads in part, “Under the influence of the CCP the World Health Organisation first downplayed the pandemic. Taiwanese health officials also allege that they ignored their alerts of human-to-human transmission in late December. Under pressure from the CCP, democratic Taiwan—which has coped with the pandemic in exemplary fashion—is excluded from the WHO….We should never forget that China’s Chernobyl moment was a self-inflicted wound….The courageous citizen journalists Chen Qiushi, Fang Bin and Li Zehua, who tried to report freely about the situation in Wuhan, now are also missing.” Read the letter HERE
Sixty-five percent of physicians across the United States said they would prescribe the anti-malaria drugs chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine to treat or prevent COVID-19 in a family member, according to a new survey released today by Jackson & Coker, one of the country’s largest physician staffing firms.
Only 11 percent said they would not use the drug at all.
Meanwhile, 30 percent of the surveyed doctors said they would prescribe the medications to a family member prior to the onset of symptoms if they had been exposed to the novel coronavirus, a highly contagious virus that causes a pneumonia-like infection of the lungs.
“Working in healthcare, we’ve learned the best way to get a candid perspective on treatment options from a physician is to ask: ‘Would you give this to your family?'” said Tim Fischer, President of Jackson & Coker. “Families across the U.S. – and the world really – want to know what they can do to protect and save their loved ones.”
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. —Proverbs 4:23
Rapid Round Up
Trump and RNC raised $212m in the first quarter of 2020. $63m came in March alone. This is $270m more than Obama raised at the same time in his presidency. Trump’s campaign has $240m cash on hand.
- TX, NY, CA, FL, GA round out the top five producing states for Trump’s re-election bid. $50m in donations have come from individuals in these states.
- Dr. Fauci came to the podium today to set the record straight about the media’s attempt to portray that Trump didn’t take his recommendations. Fauci said, “The first and only time that I went in and said we should do mitigation strongly, the response was yes, we’ll do it.”
- CDC reported that 9,282 health care workers in the U.S. have contracted the coronavirus with 27 deaths.
- Michigan Gov. Gretchen is under serious fire after 270,000 signatures were collected in a matter of days in an effort to recall her. Gretchen has imposed some of the most bizarre and un-American restrictions in the nation. State rep. Matt Maddock said, “Governor Whitmer wants 70 more days of unilateral control over us with no legislative representation.” Justin Amash, U.S. Rep said, “Sensible instructions to practice social distancing, wear masks, and stay at home already do most of the work to reduce the virus’s spread. By pushing too far, the governor undermines her own authority and increases the likelihood people will not follow reasonable guidelines.”
- Seven Republican Senators send letter to WHO demanding answers about the organization’s ability to respond to pandemics and its relationship with China.
- 25,000 retired soldiers answer the call to return to service to help with the pandemic response. The military is hoping to match the skills of retired soldiers to the needs of communities across the nation.
Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) Takes Center Stage
The University of Washington is in their second week of clinical trials studying the effects of HCQ. UW is working in conjunction with New York University to determine if HCQ can disrupt the transmission of COVID-19 in the community.
On Sunday, The Department of Health and Human Services received 30 million doses of HCQ donated by Sandoz to treat patients and engage in clinical trials.
Sen. Ron Johnson (WI) has penned a letter to President Trump requesting that he issues an executive order prohibiting governors from limiting prescription of HCQ to only hospitalized patients. The letter also requests the president remove the restriction by the FDA that HCQ can only be prescribed to certain hospitalized patients. There are currently more than 770 medical doctors who have signed onto the letter.
LSU Health New Orleans’ School of Medicine has started a clinical trial of 600 patients studying HCQ’s effect on COVID-19. The trial will study the drug and or a combination of other drugs used in conjunction with HCQ.
The American Thoracic Society backs the use of HCQ in treating COVID-19 patients. They stated, “To prescribe hydroxychloroquine (or chloroquine) to hospitalized patients with COVID-19 pneumonia if all of the following apply: a) shared decision-making is possible, b) data can be collected for interim comparisons of patients who received hydroxychloroquine (or chloroquine) versus those who did not, c) the illness is sufficiently severe to warrant investigational therapy, and d) the drug is not in short supply.” ATC is America’s largest medical group that treats respiratory diseases.
On Monday Governor Kristi Noem of South Dakota announced that her state will be the first to conduct a state-wide clinical trial of HCQ. During the governor’s briefing on Monday Noem said, “We’re going on offense to help every single person deal with this virus and be willing to fight it and get better and go home to their families.” The trial will start with 2,000 patients but the governor said they have enough supplies to test up to 100,000. The trial will test the effects of HCQ on those who have the virus and to give the drug to medical workers to see if the drug will limit the transmission rate to front line workers.
Christ Hospital in Jersey City is now prescribing HCQ to nearly 100 percent of thier patients. Dr. Naresh Patel, a resident doctor said, “Right now, this is the best that we’ve got.”
French pharmaceutical company, Sanofi, will donate 100 million doses of HCQ to nearly 50 countries. Executives at Sanofi stated they will continue to donate the drug should the clinical trials prove successful around the world.
You Can’t Make This Stuff Up!
Democrats, who just last week denied aid to American business owners are now making a new demand. They want debit cards pre-loaded with $2,000 in US funds and reloaded monthly with $1,000 until the crisis ends. Sounds good until you understand the underlying objective. These cards are to be given to illegal aliens who have lived in the country for 90-days or more. California is already pushing forward a bill that will give cash to illegal aliens who don’t qualify for federal assistance. Programs like these will increase illegal border crossings and continue to put young children in violent situations. California and New York both ended their pandemic stockpiles of ventilators over the last ten years due to a lack of funding and yet during the same time they continually funded illegal border crossing incentives. Rep. Pelosi is standing firm on denying aid to America until these type of demands are met.
Color Blind Correcting lenses Coming Soon
Engineers Sharon Karepov and Tal Ellenbogen at the famous Tel Aviv University have found a way to place color-correcting films on contact lenses. “Problems with distinguishing red from green interrupt simple daily routines such as deciding whether a banana is ripe,” said Sharon Karepov. Those who have trouble seeing the difference between red and green will now have access to contact lenses that will restore contrast and color perception by a factor of 10. Although a correction has existed for years it usually involves very bulky and uncomfortable glasses. In the near future the process will only require a small simple contact lens.

Dems Refuse Aid To USA But Want $5 Billion For Iran
Senate democrats refused to pass a bill last Thursday that would increase emergency funding for the Paycheck Protection Program to keep Americans working unless Republicans agreed to their demands. However, that same day, Sen. Feinstein wrote a letter to President Trump on behalf of her fellow Democrats insisting that he authorize $5 billion in aid to Iran.
Amy Klobuchar Reported To Be Biden's Pick For VP
The rumor mill has it that Amy Klobuchar is at the top of the pecking order to become Biden’s VP running mate. Amy raised a respectable $53m in her bid to win the Democrat’s presidential nomination. However, she struggled to gain any ground with the party’s voting base and paid nearly $7.5 million per delegate before ending her campaign in sixth place.
All 50-States Declare Emergency For The First Time In US History
On Saturday, President Trump approved Wyoming’s disaster declaration which was the last state to declare such an emergency. This is the first time in U.S. history that all 50-states have declared a disaster emergency at the same time. The U.S. Virgin Islands, D.C., Guam, and Puerto Rico have also received disaster declaration status. President Trump tweeted, “For the first time in history there is a fully signed Presidential Disaster Declaration for all 50 States. We are winning, and will win, the war on the Invisible Enemy!”
Rapid Round Up
• Louisville, Kentucky Mayor Greg Fisher specifically threatened to fine anyone who showed up to the On Fire Christian Center’s Easter service. The church took creativity to a new level by holding a stay-in-your-car parking lot church service where no one was allowed to get out of their vehicle. Federal Judge Justin Walker issued a restraining order on the mayor’s threat since the law was not applied equally. The judge correctly stated that if a person can eat in a car at a restaurant or sit in the parking lot of a grocer or at a liquor store, then the mayor can’t restrict people from sitting in cars at a church service. Read McConnell’s letter to the mayor.
• Governor Andrew Cuomo released over 1,100 prisoners from jail in his highly questionable effort to slow the spread of the virus among prisoners. Not many would be surprised to learn then that one of the prisoners, Vargas, went out and beat an elderly man at 8 in the morning for $80. Vargas is now back in jail with a $50,000 bond and the elderly man is currently at home healing.
• The Florida Supreme Court ruled unanimously against public school districts who were attempting to use local laws to override state enacted charter school provisions. Lower appellate courts ruled against the school districts as well stating that local school boards did not have constitutional authority to deny the state from enacting legislation covering educational institutions in Florida.
• Truckers who carry America’s cargo are expressing irritation at the lack of proper facilities due to lockdowns taking place all over the nation. Lack of showers, restrooms and fresh coffee is starting to take its toll on the drivers.
• 70,000 truckers could be out of a job thanks to California’s new law that bans the new gig economy. The California legislature, who take their cues from the unions, passed a law that limits the amount of contract work any person can provide to a company before the company must hire them as an employee. Hundreds of workers lost contract work the day the law took effect. However, a federal court placed a temporary injunction against the law as it relates to some 70,000 truckers who cross state lines due to federal laws conflicting with the newly passed legislation. Should the courts rule against the truckers then California would see a rapid increase in the cost of goods sold, such as Starbuck’s Coffee. You pay for what you vote for.
• New Jersey is touting new grants and loans for minorities. However, they are now including homosexuality and transgenderism as a minority which means the state is discriminating against heterosexuals. OPINION – Since homosexuality and transgenderism is a choice, then the state is essentially denying due process and equality in their attempt to force the beliefs of a few in power on the rest of society. This is why we have our Constitution to protect us from such tyrannical rule. Imagine if Alabama were to create a grant that only Christians could access, would that be equality? No it wouldn’t be, nor is New Jerseys’ grant program that denies heterosexuals the right to apply.
News That Matters To Your Life
OPEC and allies have agreed to a cut in oil production by a stunning 9.7 million barrels per day in an effort to increase the price of oil. The oil reserves around the world surpassed 75% capacity over a week ago as Russia and Saudi Arabia produced oil at record rates in a tit-for-tat battle. This cut will lead to an increase in gasoline prices at the pump but it will still take months before the excess inventory is used up around the globe.
USDA recalls 130,000 pounds of Healthy Choice Power Bowls by Conagra Brands. Specifically those with the establishment number P115 printed on them. The Healthy Choice frozen meals contain rocks and other small objects not made for human consumption.
Canada just enrolled 750 people to participate in a clinical trial to study the effects that hydroxychloroquine has on COVID-19. Officials state that if there are enough participants the study could go as high as 3,000. The goal of the clinical trial is a novel one because it’s objective isn’t to determine if the drug will cure those with the virus, but rather, can the drug prevent humans from becoming infected in the first place.
The University Medical Center in Las Vegas is bucking the system or at least working around their governor’s restrictions on hydroxychloroquine. The hospital started prescribing hydroxychloroquine to high risk patients, especially those with diabetic-related problems, who come to the hospital for treatment but don’t need to stay overnight. Nevada’s governor, Steve Sisolak, signed an executive order limiting the prescription of the drug to only those hospitalized by COVID-19.
Researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem made an announcement on Sunday about a new method they discovered for testing COVID-19 which is 4-10 times faster and utilizes materials that can be recycled. Using hundreds of samples taken from COVID-19 patients they were able to demonstrate a 100% success rate with their new testing systems. They are now working on a process that will test 15,000 people at a time at significantly cheaper costs.
Thirteen tornadoes ripped across America’s south on Easter Sunday killing at least 6. Monroe Lousiana cancelled all flights due to debris on runways and broken buildings that were left in the wake of these storms. Many were thankful that so few were injured given the severity of the storms across several states.
Trump setting the record straight via Twitter as news orgs attempted to push Dem talking points during Sunday talk shows.
“If the Fake News Opposition Party is pushing, with all their might, the fact that President Trump “ignored early warnings about the threat,” then why did Media & Dems viciously criticize me when I instituted a Travel Ban on China? They said “early & not necessary.” Corrupt Media!” — Trump Tweet Easter Sunday
“Sorry Fake News, it’s all on tape. I banned China long before people spoke up” — Trump Tweet Easter Sunday
Chinese authorities are cracking down on the publication of any COVID-19 research as international scrutiny regarding the origin of the virus intensifies . The communist government will now require it’s medical research institutes to submit all publications for official review prior to public release. The minster of Education and Science laid out new policies that state in part that, “academic papers about tracing the origin of the virus must be strictly and tightly managed.”
World Health Organization Helped China Spread Virus and Propaganda
Republican members of the House Oversight Committee are taking charge with or without their Democrat counterparts. On April 9th, Republican members of the committee sent a letter to WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus requesting that all communications between them and China relating to COVID-19 be made available to the committee no later than April 16th. The committee made very serious allegations about the suspect actions of the WHO stating that, “Throughout the crisis, the WHO has shied away from placing any blame on the Chinese government, which is in essence the Communist Party of China. You, as leader of the WHO, even went so far as to praise the Chinese government’s “transparency” during the crisis, when, in fact, the regime has consistently lied to the world by under reporting their actual infection and death statistics.”
“On January 14, 2020, the WHO tweeted that “[p]reliminary investigations conducted by Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus. These preliminary investigations included China jailing any doctor that disseminated any information about COVID-19 not first cleared through state-run media.”
“In 2017, the WHO received 17% of its total funding, or $513 million, from the United States. It is essential that American taxpayers’ money is allocated to organizations that uniformly serve the interests of nations across the globe, not merely the interests of China’s authoritarian, communist regime.”
Ranking Member Jim Jordan said, “The World Health Organization should be ashamed that they relied on Chinese propaganda when deciding how to combat the coronavirus crisis. President Trump is right to question the WHO’s role in global health going forward.”
Rep. Jim Banks (IN) Pushing Criminal Charges Against China
In late December of 2019, Li Wenliang, a 34-year-old ophthalmologist at the Wuhan Central Hospital, went public about what appeared to be a SARS-related virus that was extremely contagious. Shortly afterwards the police brought Li in to coerce a confession from him, stating that he will not publicly disclose the problems in Wuhan and calling such acts illegal. Li Wenliang would later himself contract the virus and died on Feb 7th. Rep. Jim Banks has decided to take a stand against the atrocities being committed against humanity by the communist regime of China by asking the U.S. State Department to issue a legal filing at the United Nations’ International Court of Justice (IJC). Though member states have no obligation to engage in the IJC, such refusal by China would set the stage for the U.S. and other member states to proactively punish China for its actions, including removing them from the World Trade Organization. These actions will take months, if not years to unfold, but will place an unprecedented amount of pressure on a communist government not used to being told what to do.
Trump Goes After Biden on China
Gene Editing Doctor Goes To Prison
He Jiankui, a Chinese Scientist who claimed to have made a gene-edited baby, was sentenced to three years in prison and fined 3 million yuan which is about $400k. There were two other researchers in the project also convicted, but they received lesser punishments by the communist courts.
The courts said the researchers were operating without a license and violated the Chinese code of ethics in medicine. Originally it was reported that researchers only edited the genes of twin girls, but during court hearings it was revealed that a third baby was involved.
ABC News Caught Again
ABC Reported that the National Center for Medical Intelligence reported back in November that a pending pandemic was forthcoming. The problem with the news story is that no such report exists.
“As a matter of practice, the National Center for Medical Intelligence does not comment publicly on specific intelligence matters. However, in the interest of transparency during this current public health crisis, we can confirm that media reporting about the existence of a National Center for Coronavirus-related product/assessment in November of 2019 is not correct. No such NCMI product exists.” — Col. R. Shane Day
Democrats Reject Small-Businesses
Senate Democrats blocked a vote to increase funding for the Paycheck Protection Program. The only reason given was that Democrats wanted additional funding for other items and decided to hold up aid to Americans until they get what they want.
Sen. Majority Leader McConnell said, “I’m literally talking about deleting the number 350 and writing 600 in its place…Do not block emergency aid you do not oppose just because you want something more.”
Border Crossing Plummets
Illegal Border Crossing dropped a whopping 56% since rapid expulsion began under the COVID-19 crisis. Customs and Border Protection acting Commissioner Mark Morgan told news sources that, “Those who are undocumented or don’t have documents or authorization are turned away. This is not about immigration. This is about public health. This is about putting forth aggressive mitigation and containment strategies.”
Say It Ain’t So! Biden Leads Trump In Poll. But Wait, There’s More To The Story…
The Washington Times reported on a poll conducted by Monmouth University which purported to show Trump lagging behind Biden among voters. But here’s the rest of the story that questions the validity of the poll and the lack of journalistic curiosity by the Washington Times. The poll indicated that Joe Biden is ahead of Trump by a margin of 48% to 44%. However, when one drills down into the polling data we discover that the devil truly is in the details. There were 743 registered voters polled in unknown locations throughout the country. 182 of those polled were Republicans compared to 278 independents and 277 Democrats. “What?” you say. Yes, they polled 12.9% more Democrats than Republicans. But that isn’t the full story. 343 of those surveyed came from counties where Clinton won by 10+ points compared to 258 where Trump won by the same margin. This matters because independents tend to vote with a county’s general political ideology. So if you poll 12.9% more Democrats than Republicans and you survey independents more heavily in counties that voted for Clinton than did Trump you should get a double-digit lead over Trump which is the real story of this poll. Even when a poll is conducted to give the Democrat candidate a 15-point advantage, Biden is only up by 4. This means that Trump is most likely leading nationally by a comfortable 55-45 margin. Washington Times should have reported that among a heavy base of Democrat voters Biden is leading as that would have been a more accurate title.
IPSOS Poll Tilted To Promote Dem Talking Points
“55% disapprove of Trump’s handling of the nation” say those surveyed by the latest IPSOS poll for Thomson Reuters. However, like most other polls Americans rarely see behind the scenes so we wanted to open the curtain up for you. 1,116 “adults” were surveyed with only 959 of them currently registered to vote. 480 were Democrats and 376 were Republicans. Yep, IPSOS surveyed 11% more Democrats than Republicans and called it a day.
“Is it right for Democrats to demand that you give up your individual pursuits of economic liberty until you first pay for your neighbors? That’s socialism in a nutshell” — Brian Ward
Geico announced $2.5 billion in policy insurance discounts to customers in an effort to help America get back on her feet again. To that, we tip our hat to a very generous gesture.
Is War With Iran Coming Soon?
One wouldn’t even know the world is still spinning given all the news surrounding the Coronavirus. On Wednesday President Trump took time to tell Iran not to escalate or engage in military conflicts with the United States or that his actions would be decisive. President Trump said that Iran was possibly planning a “sneak attack on U.S. troops and/or assets in Iraq.” Newsweek is reporting that U.S. Central Command chief General Kenneth McKenzie argued that the COVID-19 crisis likely makes Iran “more dangerous in terms of decision-making rather than less dangerous.” Read the full report HERE.
Serious War With China Could Be Forthcoming
Here’s the setup. You have China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, and the Philippines all joined by a body of water known as the South China Sea. Near the middle of this body of water you have what is known as the Spratly Islands. China decided they wanted to claim these islands for their own and started to build up military bases on and around these islands despite those actions violating international law. “Why should we care?” one might ask. Well, for starters, 50% of the world’s cargo flow through these waters and if China wanted to they could place a heavy fee or blockade on global trade. So, the United States started conducting maritime military patrols in the waters with allied nations, much to China’s irritation. So why are we more concerned now than say, last year? It’s because China has gone full bore on building up military bases, runways and submarine patrols in the area over the last few months. Should China decide to claim sovereignty over these islands with a loaded gun, well then, we are headed into a serious dogfight.

White House official stated that, “Data from China’s own customs agency points to an attempt to corner the world market in PPE like gloves, goggles, and masks through massive increased purchases — even as China, the world’s largest PPE manufacturer, was restricting exports.” The Trump administration is now looking at filing criminal charges against China in the coming months.
Trump’s efforts are paying off.
Apple has sourced 20m face masks and will send 1m a week to healthcare workers.
Ford Motor Co. shipped 1 million clear shields to New York.
3M will produce 165m face masks after a call to its CEO by Trump on Monday.

Russia and Saudi Arabia are rumored to have agreed on an oil production cut in a Thursday meeting if the U.S. will join them. Both countries have ballooned the supply chain over a rift that started when Russia refused to cut supply a few months ago to help bolster the price of oil. The price of oil will not go back up anytime soon even if an agreement is made due to a pre-existing global supply.
The long awaited Keystone pipeline started construction at the Montana Candian border. The pipeline will run for 1,200 miles and carry over 800,000 barrels of oil to the Gulf of Mexico for refinement. Though there are court battles still taking place, TC Energy received the necessary permits to begin construction. The timing couldn’t be better for American oil workers who will number in the tens of thousands required to finish the job.
Trump Signs Executive Order Allowing Mining of Off-world Resources
On April 6th, President Trump signed an executive order to “Encourage International Support for the Recovery and Use of Space Resources.”
“As America prepares to return humans to the moon and journey on to Mars, this executive order establishes U.S. policy toward the recovery and use of space resources, such as water and certain minerals, in order to encourage the commercial development of space” — Scott Pace, deputy assistant to the president and executive secretary of the U.S. National Space Council
MASSIVE 6,200 Physician Survey Finds Hydroxychloroquine Most Effective Treatement Against COVID-19
Sermo, the largest healthcare data collection company and global social platform for physicians, surveyed 6,200 doctors on the treatment plans they were using for patients diagnosed with COVID-19. “The three most commonly prescribed treatments amongst COVID-19 treaters are 56% analgesics, 41% Azithromycin, and 33% Hydroxychloroquine.” However, when asked what drug doctors felt was most helpful out of 15 options, Hydroxychloroquine was chosen as the number 1 therapy.

LA Doctor seeing GREAT results with Zinc and Chloroquine
Ohio State Rep. Tavia Galonski has plans to file a Crimes Against Humanity complaint with the International Criminal Court against President Trump. Galonski tweeted, “I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow.” Rep. Galonski was referring to Trump’s press event where he touted the effects of Chloroquine.
