Kamala Harris says she will NOT bring socialist policies to a Biden administration

“60 Minutes” correspondent Norah O’Donnell pressed Sen. Kamala Harris on her reputation of being considered “the most liberal United States senator.”

In this clip, Pat Gray discussed the interview, and how O’Donnell pushed Harris about being a socialist.

“As we’ve said multiple times, [Kamala Harris] is the most liberal person, the most progressive senator we had in all of the Senate,” Pat said, “including Bernie Sanders, including Elizabeth Warren.”

O’Donnell sought clarification on whether Harris would support the policies of running mate, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Harris noted that Biden did not share her support for socialist policies, including the Green New Deal and legalizing marijuana.

“Are going to bring those progressive policies — that you supported as senator — into a Biden administration,” O’Donnell asked.

In Harris’ response, she claimed part of a deal she made with Biden was to share her lived experience and give an honest perspective on policy matters.

“And is that a socialist or progressive perspective?” O’Donnell asked.

Harris said she would not bring a socialist perspective to the table. Harris added that she would not have joined the Democratic ticket if she didn’t support Biden’s vision for America.

2020 airlines CEOs Chinese COVID-19 Emergency Preparedness Europe experts Forecasting Headline News Health Intelwars savings societies the west USA vaccines

WE’RE COOKING NOW: SILVER UP 172% – GAME. SET. MATCH!

This article was contributed by Tom Beck with Portfolio Wealth Global. 

For the past few days, I’ve been spending MANY HOURS attempting to understand what the rest of 2020 holds for Covid-19 and the western world’s response to it.

As you can see, CONTRARY TO MEDIA fearmongering, which has been stupidly out of proportion, we are in a much better place than with the Spanish Flu of 1918.

CEOs of companies, whom I’ve listened to, from 3M to Starbucks, Delta Airlines, Blackstone, Blackrock, and others, are all showing TREMENDOUS RESILIENCE. For example, Delta airplanes now have cleaner air on its flights than we have in our homes, offices, and grocery stores.

No country wants to STAY BEHIND in the race to get their respective societies on their feet.

Covid-19 in the western world is not going to vanish anytime soon. I personally DESPISE UNPROVEN vaccines and any corporate injection into my body, so I’ll resist that as long as I can. But because western democracies are not designed to be locked-up like dictatorial regimes, where the citizens can’t fight the beastly government, “discipline” is much more of a loose term in the west. This means that while the Chinese can put a whole city on total lockdown, even shutting it for months on end, it WILL NEVER HAPPEN in Europe or the USA.

Americans want their lives back!

As opposed to the Chinese, Americans believe in FIGURING THINGS OUT on the go, while maintaining their liberty.

Nothing is more important than these rights in the North American culture.

Incredible opportunities are ahead of us, originating from the changes that are coming.

People are rethinking important matters and correcting their course:

  1. Health: This crisis has ALERTED EVERYONE to the importance of nutrition, exercise, sleep, rest, and recreational activities. We will see INCREDIBLE DEALS in meat replacement companies, for example.
  2. Savings: Many realized how FRAGILE their financial positions are when a crisis hits. People will look at ways to cut back.
  3. Work Environment: Not everything can be done from home and not everything SHOULD BE done from home, but there will be many more who will have home offices.

This will require better cybersecurity, cloud services, online communications, and other ventures to meet the changing workplace.

Office space isn’t going away, though. It will have to evolve, though.

  1. Family: Many either lost a loved one or believed there was a chance of that happening. Families will grow closer from this crisis, as we see it.

We will not STOP TRAVELING; that much I can say. After 9/11, I remember New-Yorkers saying that no one would fly anymore or work in a skyscraper. Everyone looked suspicious, for a while, but the world MOVES ON and it will from this.

Europe was a battleground for centuries. The French and Germans killed each other over territory for as long as the continent has existed. Today, the borders are friendly and inviting.

Israelis love vacationing in Berlin, eighty years after WW2; things evolve, people want to put the past behind and live fully.

Find your place in this new and exciting time; MILLIONAIRES WILL BE MADE!

2020 presidential election @brianstelter American comeback Cease and desist China CNN Coronavirus Donald Trump Economy election Election 2020 Intelwars Joe Biden MAGA President Trump Re-election campaign Trump 2020 Trump vs cnn Trump vs. the media USA

CNN sends cease and desist letter to Trump over ‘American Comeback’ video ad

Lawyers for CNN’s parent company sent a cease and desist letter to the re-election campaign for President Donald Trump over an ad using video from their show in a reportedly ‘deceptive’ manner.

WarnerMedia accused the Trump campaign of using CNN video in a “false, misleading and deceptive” manner.

They were objecting to an ad released on Sunday entitled, “American Comeback,” where video is edited to make it appear as if CNN’s medical expert Sanjay Gupta is crediting Trump’s policies with preventing more coronavirus cases.

The re-election campaign said they would spend more than million dollars to support the video advertisement.

But in their demand letter, lawyers for CNN point out that Gupta was not referring to the travel ban that the president instituted early in a response to the coronavirus, but rather to “the stay at home orders, the social distancing orders.”

Lawyers for WarnerMedia claimed in the letter that “the advertisement purposely and deceptively edits the clip to imply that Mr. Blitzer and Dr. Gupta were crediting the President’s travel ban policy issued in January for saving millions of American lives, when in fact Mr. Blitzer and Dr. Gupta were discussing recently implemented social distancing guidelines and stay-at-home orders issued by state and local governments.”

The letter included a demand that the campaign cease using CNN’s video in their ad.

The response

In a tweet posted on Monday, the Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale hammed CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter for apparently only giving the campaign 7 minutes to respond to his request for a comment.

“@CNN rejected another accurate Trump ad because they’re stooges for Dems but they’ll run any bogus Dem ad,” Parscale tweeted.

“Drop the ‘news’ veil already & just declare yourselves a SuperPAC for Biden,” he added.

Here’s the video ad to which CNN is objecting:

US Women’s soccer suffers defeat in court over ‘equal pay’ lawsuit

U.S. Women’s soccer players suffered a legal defeat when a judge ruled that they were not being unfairly paid in comparison to their male counterparts.

The ruling was handed down by Judge R. Gary Klausner of the United States District Court for the Central District of California on Friday.

Critics have claimed that female soccer players aren’t payed as well as their male counterparts, but Klausner disagreed.

“The WNT (Women’s National Team) has been paid more on both a cumulative and an average per-game basis than the MNT (Men’s National Team) over the class period,” said the court according to a report from Reuters.

Klausner allowed for a separate claim to proceed by the female players arguing that they were receiving disparate compensation in the form of travel, training, housing and other proceeds.

The United States Soccer Federation showed that the female players were paid $8 million more in salaries and bonuses, despite the games of the male players grossing much more game revenue.

Molly Levinson, who represents the female players, said that they plan to appeal the decision.

“We are shocked and disappointed. We will not give up our hard work for equal pay,” said Levinson.

“We are confident in our case and steadfast in our commitment to ensuring that girls and women who play this sport will not be valued as lesser just because of their gender,” she added.

Here’s more about the great soccer gender pay debate:

Central Banks Coronavirus COVID-19 Donald Trump Dow Jones economic manipualtion Federal Reserve globally Headline News Intelwars market manipulations outbreak pandemic rate cut Shopping Stock Prices supply chains United States USA

The Unstoppable Coronavirus vs. The “All-Powerful” Federal Reserve

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

Has the Federal Reserve finally met an opponent that it won’t be able to defeat?  Ever since the last financial crisis, unprecedented intervention by the Fed at key moments has kept the economy and the financial system relatively stable.

No matter what has come along, it has seemed like the Federal Reserve has always had an answer, and this has created an environment that has enabled the most ridiculous stock market bubble in U.S. history to grow to epic proportions.  But now COVID-19 is perhaps the greatest challenge that the Fed has faced in modern times.  No matter how low-interest rates are pushed, and no matter how much helicopter money the Fed drops from the sky, it isn’t going to cause fearful Americans to go shopping, take trips or start businesses.  And nothing that the Fed can do will be able to mitigate the severe disruptions to global supply chains that we are currently witnessing.

But that doesn’t mean that the Fed isn’t going to go back to the same old playbook that has worked so well in the past.

On Tuesday the Fed announced an emergency rate cut, and instead of soaring, stock prices absolutely tanked.  In fact, the Dow Jones Industrial Average ended the day down 785 points

The decision to cut rates by half a percentage point came two weeks before the Fed’s scheduled meeting as the central bank felt it was necessary to act quickly to combat the effect of the virus spreading worldwide. It’s the first such emergency action coming in between scheduled meetings since the financial crisis.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 785.91 points lower, or nearly 3%, to 25,917.41; it rose more than 300 points earlier in the day. The 30-stock average gyrated between sharp gains and solid losses after the decision was announced. The S&P 500 fell 2.8% to 3,003.37 while the Nasdaq Composite pulled back 3% to 8,684.09.

At this point, the Federal Reserve doesn’t have much room to reduce interest rates.  But of course, President Trump was disappointed in the Fed’s decision because he wanted an even bigger rate cut

Trump tweeted following the Fed’s move – keeping up his longstanding practice of demanding lower rates.

‘The Federal Reserve is cutting but must further ease and, most importantly, come into line with other countries/competitors,’ Trump wrote. ‘We are not playing on a level field. Not fair to USA. It is finally time for the Federal Reserve to LEAD. More easing and cutting!’

Meanwhile, just about everyone else is using the word “panic” to describe this move by the Fed.  The following example comes from Zero Hedge

Instead, as it stands “it smells like panic” as more than one Wall Street veteran put it.

Worse, as BMO’s Ian Lyngen puts it, what happened after the Fed’s emergency 50bps rate cut, the biggest since Jerome Kerviel blew up SocGen, “the situation didn’t play out exactly as Powell might have envisioned.

So just how bad is it? Well, as plunging stocks demonstrate, the Fed is this close from losing all credibility…. and since the market has been held up for the past 11 years on nothing but Fed faith – and trillions in Fed liquidity – this could be a very, very big problem.

If you can believe it, even CNBC’s Jim Cramer is saying that this move by the Fed has made him “nervous”

Cramer went on to say that he’d previously been optimistic, despite the recent Dow freefall. But the Fed’s move has caused him to adopt a more cautious posture.

“It makes me feel, wow, the weakness must be much more than I thought,” Cramer said. “And I’ve been trying to be bullish, but I can’t.”

He added, “I’m now nervous. I’m more nervous than I was before.”

The Federal Reserve has almost entirely run out of interest rate ammunition already, and we aren’t even officially in a recession yet.

So what are they going to do once things get really bad?

A reduction in interest rates usually spurs the U.S. economy, but these are not normal times.

Even if interest rates were pushed all the way to the floor, it isn’t going to change the fact that global supply chains are collapsing and a large portion of the population is scared to death of this virus

Lower borrowing costs typically spur more consumers to buy houses, cars and other products, and encourage businesses to purchase more equipment such as factory machines, computers.

But historically low rates can’t address delayed deliveries from China that leave store shelves half-filled and auto manufacturers short of imported parts. They can’t prod shoppers fearful of contracting the virus to visit malls and restaurants. And they can’t bring back throngs of foreign tourists to U.S. hotels and shopping centers, including many from China and other countries now subject to travel bans.

And the problems that we are seeing with global supply chains are expected to continue to get worse in the weeks ahead.  In fact, Harvard Business Review is anticipating that the impact of this virus could peak “in mid-March”…

Reports on how the Covid-19 outbreak is affecting supply chains and disrupting manufacturing operations around the world are increasing daily. But the worst is yet to come. We predict that the peak of the impact of Covid-19 on global supply chains will occur in mid-March, forcing thousands of companies to throttle down or temporarily shut assembly and manufacturing plants in the U.S. and Europe. The most vulnerable companies are those which rely heavily or solely on factories in China for parts and materials. The activity of Chinese manufacturing plants has fallen in the past month and is expected to remain depressed for months.

But what if this virus just continues to explode all over the planet?

When I posted my last article yesterday, the number of confirmed cases outside of China had just surpassed the 10,000 mark.

As I write this, that number is just shy of the 13,000 mark, and by the time most of you read this article it will be even higher.

After interest rates are pushed all the way to the floor, “helicopter money” will be about the only weapon the Fed has left.

Normally, “helicopter money” pushes up stock prices, but in the middle of a horrifying global pandemic, people are not going to want stocks.

Instead, there is going to be tremendous demand for food and other essential supplies, and “helicopter money” will just escalate prices to absolutely absurd levels.

Sadly, fear of this virus is already starting to cause this to happen

Would you pay $149 for a two-pack of 12-ounce bottles of Purell? How about a single container of Clorox wipes for $44.25, plus $14.59 shipping?

As the coronavirus spreads and people rush to protect themselves and their families from getting sick, the U.S. is seeing heavy demand for everything from masks to hand sanitizer.

If you use Purell, I hope that you stocked up ahead of time.

There has never been a time like this before in all of American history, and what we have seen so far is just the beginning.

Now that the U.S. is planning to start testing more people, we are being warned that we could see an explosion in the number of confirmed cases in the weeks ahead.

If that happens, there is going to be a tremendous amount of fear.

But now is not a time for fear.  Now is a time to be calm, to think rationally, and to act resolutely.

It is during moments of crisis that we find out who we really are, and hopefully, this challenge will bring out the best in all of us.
