The IGs, the Stock Market, Donald Trump, and the multi-trillion dollar bailout

How are they connected?

Donald Trump said he, not Congress, would be in charge of the fund.

He then proceeded to fire the IGs to make sure no one else was looking after the money.

Wall Street cheered. They now had someone with the funds to bail them out if they got in a tight squeeze.

The market rallied. Even with massive unemployment numbers and people dying by the thousands, Wall Street was re-assured to know that Donald Trump was in charge of $6 trillion dollars if they needed help?

They were ready to crawl back from the ledge.

A Senate that cannot communicate during a pandemic

What value are they? Why do they even exist?

Who is responsible? Is it simply the partisan political environment in which we now live? Why can the political leaders not communicate? How can any problem be resolved if people refuse to talk with each other?

What does it gain us to point fingers and blame the other side? What is accomplished?

Mitch McConnell has put his Party into a comfortable cocoon. They feel safe and protected from reality and political attacks.

Howver, they are AWOL from the crisis and serious problems we are now facing. Perhaps if they ignore it, it will go away?

The neglect and incompetence of the Republicans is beyond description.

Who can talk with these people when they refuse to listen?

Where the media is failing?

First of all, stop promoting the lies and propaganda. Record the briefings and give the people the pertinent and factual information with which to make rational and wise decisions.

Secondly, find Republicans to interview, especially Republican leaders. They are hiding from the media, or else the media is not trying to locate them.

We know where the Democrats stand. We need to know where the Republicans stand. For example, what do they think is the responsibility of the Congress in oversight of the $2.2 trillion that Donald Trump is attempting to steal?

The truth is to be found by putting pressure on the Republicans. So long as they are permitted to hide from the media, the confusion and propaganda will continue from this White House. It is not enough to simply interview Democrats.

Snowflakes can't handle the truth.

There are very few Republicans with the courage to say one word against Donald Trump. They cannot handle the truth.

Their President is lying to them. He is lying to America. Yet, they are mostly silent.

There are no profiles of courage in the Republican Party. Mitt Romney? Not that courageous. He knows that Trump is not that popular in Utah. But, he is still afraid to make too many waves.

They follow the example of Mitch McConnell, who doesn't even know what planet he is on.

We can only assume that their silence is consent? We all know these people. They say nothing, as if they do not recognize lies, deception, or tyranny? They are like zombies.

They sleepwalk as our country is being destroyed from within. Perhaps they are hoping that the Democrats will save our country once again and they don't have to do anything except be against our "government"? They are true snowflakes. They melt at the first sight of the truth.

The sad fact is that they love their Party more than they love their Country. They are frozen with indecision and cowardice.

It is their silence that is so infuriating. These were our family and friends. What happened to them?

Their brains have melted like butter under the propaganda assault of Donald Trump. They are not capable of reasoning or rationalizing. They cannot tell the difference between reality and a "reality show".

What choice do they leave everyone else?

Snowflakes are soon gone.

Good time to take a walk to the garden...

Turn the crap off.

Trump manipulates stock market with his lies and pronouncements.

<snip>
The price of Brent crude leapt by 30% after the US president, Donald Trump, fanned hopes of a new deal between Riyadh and Moscow to help stabilise the oil market.

<snip>

Trump tweeted on Thursday that he had spoken to Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman and expected Riyadh and Moscow to cut output by as much as 15m barrels a day.

The president initially said the oil production cut should be about 10m barrels a day, but raised the figure to 15m in a subsequent tweet. “If it happens,” he wrote on Twitter, it “will be GREAT for the oil & gas industry!”

Hopes of renewed cooperation in the oil market were later dampened by a spokesman for the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, who reportedly told journalists that “no one has started talking about any specific or even abstract deals”.

It wasn't so bad.

Sort of like the corona virus.
