    Five tech firms backed by Thrive Capital — whose founder Joshua Kushner is the brother-in-law of Donald’s Jewish daughter Ivanka Trump – have received at least $2.8 million in cheap loans from the Trump administration’s Paycheck Protection Program.

    Thrive’s other investments include Oscar Health, ClassPass, Instacart and Robinhood (not the “Foundation” but a trading app): https://nypost.com/2020/08/17/startu...-relief-funds/

    Jeff Bezos - $189,490,763 (+ $76 billion)
    Bill Gates - $114,101,127 (+ $16 billion)

    Steve Ballmer - $71,506,461 (+ $18 billion)

    Donald Trump’s buddy Carl Icahn together with (amongst others) Apollo Global Management have profited by “going short”; expecting shopping malls to go bankrupt during the coronavirus “pandemic”.

    Apollo Global Management (run by Joshua Harris and Leon Black) has financed the Kushner in-laws of Ivanka Trump with hundreds of millions of dollars…

    Carl Icahn made $1.3 billion.
    Apollo Global Management made more than $100 million: https://archive.is/qsz1e

    The UK’s chief scientific adviser Sir Patrick Vallance owns 43,111 shares in GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) worth £600,000 from his time as president of the pharmaceutical giant from 2012 to 2018.
    Vallance held 404,201 GSK shares when he resigned as president and has already sold for more than £5 million in shares.

    That’s the same GSK that made a deal to supply the UK with up to 60 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine.
    GSK has a similar deal with the US Government to supply 100 million doses as part of Donald’s Operation Warp Speed: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...maker-GSK.html

    Because of the worldwide corona lockdown, 1.6 billion workers in the informal economy (the most vulnerable of the workforce) are in danger of losing their income.
    That is out of a worldwide total of 2 billion in the informal economy and a global workforce of 3.3 billion people.

    An estimated loss of working hours in Q2 (compared to pre-crisis levels):
    12.4% for the Americas;
    11.8% for Europe and Central Asia;
    Above 9.5% for other regions in the world.

    In the first month of the crisis the income of informal workers globally dropped some 60%:
    81% in Africa and the Americas;
    70% in Europe and Central Asia;
    21.6% in Asia and the Pacific.

    Worldwide, more than 436 million businesses are in deep trouble.
    232 million in wholesale and retail;
    111 million in manufacturing;
    51 million in accommodation and food services;
    42 million in real estate and other business activities: https://www.ilo.org/global/about-the...--en/index.htm

    Because of the complete lockdown of the economy, people in the third world are getting hungry.
    Even in the “developed” US, some 1.5 million New Yorkers cannot buy food, and are standing in long lines to beg for food from food banks.
    Because Big Brother wants to know everything, and the long lines were bad publicity (so short before the re-election of Donald Trump), people begging for food have to make an appointment before they can pick up food at Masbia: https://www.fox5ny.com/news/pandemic...cs-food-crisis


    Billionaires all across the globe have gotten richer (according to FT).

    Feeding America, a network of 60,000 U.S. food shelters, estimates that more than 54 million Americans won’t be able to buy food because of the coronavirus lockdown, with the biggest increases in food insecurity in North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

    Most of the record amount of farm aid has gone to big farms over small-scale farmers or food for workers.
    Some argue that this could make President Donald lose the coming presidential election in the Midwest of the USA (but I don’t believe that Biden has a chance): https://uk.reuters.com/article/us-us...-idUSKBN27C1IM


    The IMF is always ready to “help” countries into destruction…
    The IMF has now “warned” (or should we say “boasted”) that the poor countries of the world are heading for a catastrophe because of the economic disaster, caused by the draconic COVID-19 measures.

    I’m surprised that the “petro-dollar” (with lower oil prices) has increased in value because it is considered a “safe haven”.
    This has made the burden of repayment of the debt for the “poor” countries, with devaluated currencies, even more difficult.

    The global PPT has completely controlled markets today. They clearly are not allowing another sell-off today. Gotta keep the market numbers managed so the big guys can dump to bagholders on fabricated up-days like today. Today's charts are so obviously manipulated it's ridiculous.

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.

    Market was oversold in the context of an uptrend. 99 out of 100 hundred Nasdaq stocks were down Wednesday. I know you think people just keep selling until stocks go to zero, but it just doesn't work that way. People get exhausted selling. A lot of things lined up for a bounce today. The SPY hit a major trendline which whether that should matter or not, people think it does so they buy and cover shorts. The SPY knifed below the lower Bollinger Band. Plus you are hitting the most favorable few days of the year right now for the market within the most favorable time of month.

    You often post about the end of the US dollar. The following suggests that the dollar is stronger than ever!

    How does this fit in with you ideas on the end of the USD?!?

    DXY is the equivalent of picking the healthiest horse in the glue factory. It's not a measure of the actual strength/value of a currency. Besides, 93 on the DXY is far from the strongest read the FRN has had. Notice how while markets have been selling off recently, so have Treasuries. Usually there's a flight to Treasuries when stocks get shaky. Not this time. The DXY is little more than a measure of demand for the currency. Strong readings can (and in this case probably do) indicate a dumping of dollar denominated assets (stocks, bonds, etc) to receive cash, which is then used to buy hard assets.

    Any way, I only made yesterday's post because it's relevant to the thread title. They're doing everything they can to hold up stock valuations while the big guys move out of stocks and put the cash into amassing real things, ahead of the Reset.

    Don't insult my intelligence. I'm well aware of the purpose of the system and the history behind it, therefore I'm also aware that everything that can be controlled and manipulated is, with systemic looting in mind. It's even easier now since the looters, operating under a british war flag, have real-time data that enables them to specifically move markets to fleece the most fiat from the most people on any given day. At this point, all else (technicals, charts, bands, etc) is complete noise and has clearly in recent memory been proven to be completely irrelevant. Anyone that is an active ticker watcher can plainly see that the daily markets are 100% centrally managed and operated in near concert for the benefit of those that already own everything.

    A devastating report shows the cronyism of Queen Elizabeth’s government's £18 billion bonanza to award PPE contracts to companies not on the basis of quality or price but on the best contacts. £10.5 billion worth in contracts were awarded with no competition whatsoever.
    This is precisely how public procurement in Britain is supposed to work....

    Dominic Cummings was chief adviser to PM Boris Johnson.
    Cummings is connected to artificial intelligence firm Faculty and research company Public First, which were awarded contracts worth more than £3.8 million.

    Cummings has long-standing links to Public First, owned by James Frayne and his wife Rachel Wolf, who co-wrote the Conservative Party's 2019 manifesto. Frayne and Wolf have also worked for minister for the Cabinet Office Michael Gove.
    Cummings's association with Frayne goes back to 2000, when they worked together on a campaign against Britain joining the euro and they co-founded a think tank.
    In 2016, Faculty worked with Cummings on the Vote Leave campaign (Brexit) and in 2018 and 2019 was hired by Cummings’ company Dynamic Maps.

    A PR firm run by Lord Feldman, David Cameron's best friend and former Tory party chairman, represents a testing company that was awarded a £28 million Government contract after a meeting where Feldman advised Secretary Matt Hancock on the COVID-19 response: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...PE-fiasco.html

    In October, the wonderful World Bank boasted that because of the worldwide corona lockdown of the economy:
    The COVID-19 pandemic is estimated to push an additional 88 million to 115 million people into extreme poverty this year, with the total rising to as many as 150 million by 2021, depending on the severity of the economic contraction.

    Extreme poverty, defined as living on less than $1.90 a day, is likely to affect between 9.1% and 9.4% of the world’s population in 2020, according to the biennial Poverty and Shared Prosperity Report. This would represent a regression to the rate of 9.2% in 2017. Had the pandemic not convulsed the globe, the poverty rate was expected to drop to 7.9% in 2020.
    .
    Many already poor countries will be severely hit, while also in middle-income countries many people will become extremely poor - about 82% of the total will be in middle-income countries.
    The COVID-19 lockdown has also worldwide diminished “the growth of income” of the poorest 40% of the population: https://www.worldbank.org/en/news/pr...e-poor-by-2021
    (https://archive.is/kJvgM)


    One of the African countries for which the economy has been completely destroyed is Kenya, where poverty increased with 4% (or an additional 2 million poor).
    The unemployment rate doubled to 10.4%, while even the employed saw their income drop substantially, by reducing their work hours, from averagely 50 to 38 hours per week: https://www.the-star.co.ke/business/...ty-world-bank/

    Kenya keen to renegotiate debt, fees with China as coronavirus hits unprofitable Mombasa-Naivasha rail line
    https://www.scmp.com/economy/china-e...ronavirus-hits
    Poor profitability, made worse by tough Covid-19 economic conditions, were the main cause for Kenya last week to call for a renegotiation of its loan from China used to fund the 580km (360 mile) rail line, rather than the US blacklisting of Chinese state-owned engineering giant China Communications Construction Company (CCCC), which helped build the line.
    I'm sure their CCP masters will be more than happy to negotiate generous terms.
