Coronavirus excuse masks nascent bear market










“So goes January, so goes the year.” If the old adage is true, this could mean the longest bull market in history is coming to an end. And from a political perspective, it couldn’t come at a worse time. Another adage in investing is “buy the rumor sell the fact.” I mentioned in a recent podcast that investors would soon be selling the facts behind Trump’s trade deal. Well, it didn’t take very long for the markets to find a reason to sell. The markets were clobbered today and contrary to what the media says, the coronavirus is not the reason. It’s just an excuse and if they didn’t have the coronavirus, they’d find something else to blame. A lot of the stocks going down are retailers and have nothing to do with coronavirus. If the coronavirus passes and this slump in the market doesn’t, reasons for optimism will start fade fast. 2019 numbers show only 2.3% GDP growth. Could 3 rate cuts and a return to QE possibly be the reason? Joe Biden gave Bernie Sanders a bone by claiming he’s not a real Democrat. Voters are sick of party insiders and this will backfire on Biden the way it did on the Republican candidates when they accused Trump of not being a real Republican. Nobody would invent keto ice cream in a Socialist economy. Gold stocks continue to be undervalued. This is a gift horse and you don’t want to look it in the mouth. Gold is up again. If gold is this strong with the headwind of a strengthening dollar, just imagine the strength it will have with the tailwind of a falling dollar.

The Fed's Swan Song: The Mother of All Financial Disasters


If the dot-com and housing bubbles were The Fed's prelude and opening acts, they've surely created the biggest bubble of them all since the 2008 bust. The coming financial crisis may very well be The Fed's swan song. Sound money and free markets must replace this central planning nightmare!

Deutsche Bank lost 15 Billion Euros over The past 5 Years , As Germany is Collapsing to Recession !








The Bank crash is getting closer. Deutsche Bank is deep in the red. After decades of money laundering for Russian and American oligarchs, Deutsche Bank knows that their goose is cooked and that they had better start circling the wagons and getting rid of the evidence. Shares are in freefall. Record losses, more reserves for litigation, austerity measures waiting to be implemented - no wonder Germany’s biggest bank is in crisis. The negative headlines at Deutsche Bank seem to never stop. After the questionable appointment of Sigmar Gabriel as a member of the Supervisory Board, the figures for 2019 have now reached a new dimension. Deutsch bank, now in its 150th year, is considered one of the global financial system’s most important banks but has been hit by a string of misconduct scandals. Deutsche Bank lost 15 billion euros over the past five years, exceeding 9 billion euros in profit earned at the start of the decade. Deutsche Bank plunged to a bigger than expected loss of 5.7 billion euros ($6.3 billion) last year, This is the fifth year in a row. As the cost of its latest turnaround attempt hit earnings. The latest attempt, under CEO Christian Sewing, is a 7.4-billion euro drive to cut 18,000 jobs, shrink its investment bank and focus on corporate as well as private banking. Deutsche Bank also reported a loss of 832 million euros between July and September, after the red of over 3 billion in the second quarter. The restructuring plans are not taking off. There's nothing good on the horizon for Deutsche Bank, as it is still one of the largest derivative players in the world. forty-nine trillion dollars; trillion not million not billion. Deutsche Bank, even after cutting thousands of jobs; It still reported bigger than the expected loss for 2019 of 5.7 billion euros. As costs related to its restructuring plan. This is a significant loss. It's one of the biggest annual losses in Deutsche Bank's history. Deutsche Bank is also cutting bonuses. But despite the loss of billions, the bank board will receive bonuses in the millions for 2019. However, the pot is likely to be around half the size of the previous year at an estimated 13 million euros. The top managers waive the so-called individual performance-based remuneration. It is important to point out that, The President of Deutsche Bank is the Chairman of the Board for The Bank of International Settlements (BIS). The BIS is the Mother of all Central Banks. Welcome to The Atlantis Report. Recently Deutsche Bank has announced it will cut 18,000 jobs in an effort to radically restructure the financial institution. Deutsche has said the move will cost 7.4 billion euros, as the company leaves global investment banking behind and slashes some operations in fixed income. The bulk of job cuts are expected to be in Europe and the United States. The Banking crisis is the first step towards a major change . Deutsche bank is not the last bank to be prepared some major banks will soon collapse. The German miracle, which for months had been proposed to us as a model to follow and imitate, is now a distant memory, reduced to a pile of rubble from the events that have happened in recent months. The tariff war has unmasked the Achilles heel of the locomotive of Europe, the mechanism that thanks to the single currency have allowed Berlin to have the best accounts in the Eurozone: accumulating large savings surpluses without making investments. In other words, the stagnant effect brought Germany back to earth: in the summer the data on the business confidence index (Ifo) photographed a -6% recession in the GDP, the auto sector - that is, the main industry of the country is in crisis. The industrial production and manufacturing are both falling. It is clear that the German model based on exports and austerity is coming to an end. The king is now naked. Public opinion expects Germany to undergo a predictable self-criticism session but Berlin does not intend to admit its mistakes. In all of this, the German newspaper Die Welt unexpectedly attacked Deutsche Bank - within which, a feud between strong members and the president is underway - for its accounts and the consequent plan renovation. In the period between July and September, the largest German bank lost 942 million euros compared to a net profit of 130 million for the same period of the previous year. It did not end there: in the third quarter, revenues fell by 15%, reaching the 5.3 billion mark. The main reason for such a drop lies in the institution's decision to withdraw from equity trading, yet the nopn explanation is convincing given that there is also a -13% drop in fixed income. This is an internal earthquake. The heads of the bank try to save the salvable. CEO Christian Sewing noted the pre-tax profit of 353 million, in addition to the good state of the bank's main activities, the Cet1 capital index stable at 13.4% and a growth in managed savings. The markets are of a completely different opinion, so much so that many analysts recommend selling the Deutsche Bank stock to investors. Even Bankhaus Lampe, Die Welt always points out, or one of the most important existing business banks would have completed the analysis coverage of the Deutsche Bank stock. The institute's decision was expressed to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper by the deputy CEO, Karl von Rohr: the bank will switch to negative rates for larger accounts. In the meantime, around 1000 employees said goodbye to Deutsche Bank to join BNP Paribas. In short, everyone runs away from DeutscheBank. In this regard, the German press hypothesizes an internal political clash. The feeling is that in order to save itself, the Deutsche Bank may soon change its paradigm, abandoning the American model based on derivatives and stock trading to concentrate on financing for German companies. It remains to be seen whether such a step will be sufficient to avoid the final meltdown. Between accumulating losses, a restructuring that does not take off missed targets and employee cleavers, Deutsche Bank, but also Commerzbank stocks continue their descent. A Commerzbank stock - of which the German state owns 15% - purchased at 26 euros per share between 2008 and 2009 is now worth 5 euros, 7% less than just two months ago. A Deutsche Bank stock trades at 6.9 euros while a year ago it was worth about 20% more. Before the summer, the hypothesis of a combination of the two groups had given oxygen back to the stocks. Then, once the awareness that the merger would cause more harm than well made its way, the project was shelved and the shares started to fall again. The latest news is not comforting. Commerzbank announced that it will not meet its 2019 targets, despite better-than-expected third-quarter accounts. Both German banks are confronted with an objectively very difficult market. Negative rates affect the profitability of all European banks that generate part of their profits thanks to the difference between the rates charged to customers and those paid to depositors. The lower the rates, the narrower this gap. When rates end up even below zero, the mechanism engulfs. In Germany, this phenomenon is particularly accentuated, in addition, on the domestic market both institutions face fierce competition from the "Sparkassen", which are owned by local authorities. Similar to our savings banks, these local banks have less pressing partner remuneration targets and can, therefore, afford particularly aggressive conditions for loans to customers. Deutsche Bank is engaged in a complex transition that basically configures a return to the past: less risk from investment activities and more income from traditional banking activities. Unfortunately, however, in the light of the new monetary conditions, this past is crumbling. The bank has not yet completely disposed of the hangover of the early 2000s when it invested heavily in the US and in financial products linked to real estate mortgages. Deutsche Bank still has “Level 3” financial products in the balance sheet for a hypothetical value of 24 billion euros. These are assets to which it is almost impossible to attribute a real value since there is no longer a reference market. In other words, if the bank manages to sell them, the amount collected could be much lower. A bad bank has been created to assist the parent company in this toxic asset disposal work. But it's a bit like putting dust under the carpet, the losses are less visible but there are and drain resources. The unscrupulous activity in the US has also left an infinite trail of fines of tens of billions paid by the US supervisory authorities. In turn, Commerzbank tries to downsize and reinvent itself. Cuts on cuts, for now, and focus on loans to companies, medium-small species. Not a great idea in this moment of almost the German recession with a consequent foreseeable increase in insolvent customers. In the future, the choice could prove more fruitful. Both banks have started to charge negative rates on the deposits of large customers, be they companies or in the case of individuals with large assets. Moved by uncertain outcomes although probably inevitable. As if that were not enough, like all the big European banks, the two German Banks are also grappling with the capital strengthening requested by the EU authorities. Basically, banks are asked to have more money available to deal with any losses. It must be said that Frankfurt did not miss helpers in various forms, starting with a 2 billion discount granted to Deutsche Bank on capital requirements. In addition, the two German banks are among those that benefit most from the tiering recently introduced by the ECB, that is to say, a system that avoids the application of negative rates on part of the reserves that European banks deposit with the central bank. The markets understandably continue to penalize the securities of the two German Banks, with negative news triggered waves of sales and apocalyptic readings of the situation. "The situation in the German banking sector is far from thriving: the two main banks are in crisis. Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank. Deutsche Bank has lost 90% of its value since 2007, while Commerz has lost 98% of its value. The rest of the thousands of small banks, including public, private and cooperative, are in great difficulty due to negative rates. Precisely this last element has further complicated the situation in the sector: small banks have transmitted negative rates on payments to commercial customers, but they are unable to transmit them to private ones because it is contrary to its traditions and the understanding of customers. In contrast, banks in Switzerland have been much stricter and have had no problems passing on negative interests to customers. The search for a return at any cost has also pushed lenders to invest in risky assets. Among these, those related to the real estate sector which has not had a significant post-crisis drop, as happened in the German one, but is in an overvalued situation valued from 15% to 30%. Therefore, to make profits, the banks have exposed themselves strongly to mortgages which, in the event of a market crisis, would become of the doubtful due date. The German credit sector is also difficult to reform due to its extreme fragmentation and the presence of the public sector. The EU is doomed. It was from the start. Now Angela Merkel can step down, she has achieved her goal of destroying Europe. President Trump has given several ultimatums to Europe about the cost of defending Europe and the substantial trade imbalance. Failure to comply will have dire consequences. The US economy is only 16 percent dependent on foreign trade. It has an 800 billion dollar a year trade deficit. One way or another that must go to zero. Europe will buy more from the US or sell less to it but its trade surplus will end. This was The Atlantis Report. Please Like. Share. And Subscribe. Thank You.

👉Coronavirus Vaccine -- Investing in These Pharmaceutical Companies Could Make you Rich .










The World Health Organization has just declared coronavirus a global health emergency. History has shown that the best buying opportunity for a stock market worried about a global pandemic comes when the World Health Organization declares a global emergency. In other words, the market is already factoring in the risk, and so by the time the official confirmation comes, the best course of action is to buy the dip. Buy the rumor sell the fact is an old trading adage in a similar vein to things like “the trend is your friend” and “don’t trade with money you can’t afford to lose”. Welcome to The Atlantis Report. As concerns about the new coronavirus grow, pharmaceutical companies are rushing to get the fastest-spreading vaccine for this disease first. The Pharmaceutical companies are rushing to come up with a coronavirus vaccine. Pharmaceutical companies around the world are making great efforts to discover new tests and treatments in response to the new Chinese coronavirus, the infamous 2019-nCoV. For example, one of these companies, the US Co-Diagnostics, has completed the first phase of designing a screening test that detects the disease. As soon as the market found out, the company's stocks jumped 138.9%. This episode gives a good idea of ​​what the markets think about the pharmaceutical business of coronavirus. On the other hand, investors have started looking for companies that can find countermeasures for the disease. The short story of a planetary emergency. The first signs of the emergency came at the end of last year. Back then, the World Health Organization (WHO) was informed of a series of pneumonia cases with unknown causes in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei, China. Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that cause anything from the common cold to Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). As the WHO indicates, symptoms include fever, cough and breathing difficulties. As concerns about the new coronavirus have grown, pharmaceutical companies have increased efforts to try to keep up with the rapidly spreading disease. Wall Street saw the stocks of some pharmaceutical companies booming. For example, this pharmaceutical company, Vir Biotechnology (United States), grew by 43.5% in just two days. It happened as soon as the company communicated to investors that it was determining whether its previously identified anti-coronavirus antibodies were an effective measure against the disease. Moderna Inc., another American biotechnology company, in collaboration with the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations association from Norway, plans to develop a vaccine against the disease. In just one day, the company's stock prices rose by 3.5%. Works for the coronavirus vaccine has already started worldwide . And in the age of genetic maps and the internet, this effort is possible even without the virus having to leave China. It was from here that the first announcement came, followed by that of the United States, and at least five companies in the western world are working in this direction. Shanghai East Hospital of Tongji University said it was ready to develop a vaccine in collaboration with the Stermirna Therapeutics company. Then it was the turn of one of the major international authorities in the field of vaccines, Anthony Fauci, director of the American Institute for Infectious Diseases (Niaid) of the National Institutes for Health (Nih): "We have already started, together with several of our collaborators ", he announced. It is a long and uncertain process, added Fauci, "but we are proceeding as if we were going to produce a vaccine. In other words, we are considering the worst case scenario, that is, that further spread occurs". In any case, it will be a computer-made vaccine based on genetic information. The vaccine "cannot be the classic one based on the inactivated virus: it must be a genetic type vaccine, based on the information contained in the genetic material of the virus," The CEO of the biotechnology company Takis, who is working on the vaccine against the new coronavirus, told journalists. In fact, it is no longer necessary, as in the past, to have the virus physically available: it is enough to know its genetic material. The latter is freely accessible online and to all researchers in the world. Because it has been deposited in the GeneBank and Gisaid databases. The technology developed by the Italian company consists of taking a fragment of the virus genome and cloning it in the circular DNA strands present in the bacteria. The packet thus obtained is injected into the muscle and then a short electric shock enters the vaccine inside the cell, in the area other than the nucleus called the cytoplasm. The cells thus produce a substance that can be recognized by the immune system (called an antigen) and carry it to their surface. The administration technique, called electroporation, is currently used for some forms of chemotherapy and in the past, it was also foreseen for the vaccine against another coronavirus. The one responsible for Mers (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) in 2015. Meanwhile, China has announced that it plans to use Lopinavir and Ritonavir from the American pharmaceutical company AbbVie. These are drugs whose combined use has been used to treat and prevent HIV and AIDS. In the case of the new coronavirus, it is an intermediate treatment waiting for researchers to discover an effective drug. Again, when the market learned about Chinese intentions, Abbvie's shares grew 1.8%. There are those who say that to know where the spread of the new coronavirus is (as well as the discovery of a vaccine). It is better to look at Wall Street rather than the Chinese news.

China coronavirus spreads to India and Philippines








The World Health Organization is meeting to decide whether the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus amounts to a global health emergency. The virus has now spread to India and Philippines. Thousands of people have been infected worldwide, the vast majority of them in China. Hundreds of foreign nationals are being evacuated from the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak. Japan has begun repatriating its citizens, and the US and South Korea are working to move their citizens out of China. More cases of the virus have been confirmed in China. Australia says its citizens who are being brought home from China will be quarantined offshore on Christmas Island at first. Some airlines, including British Airways, have suspended all flights to and from China. In Germany, three new cases have been reported. Meanwhile, scientists are working feverishly to develop a vaccine.

Coronavirus Panic : A Week Ago There Were 547 Coronavirus Cases In China. Now There Are 7,711.








This coronavirus outbreak continues to grow at an exponential rate. In fact, the number of cases is 14 times larger than it was just one week ago. Needless to say, if the number of cases continues to escalate at this pace, we are going to have a horrifying global pandemic of epic proportions on our hands very rapidly. But hopefully that won’t happen. Hopefully the measures that global authorities have taken to slow the spread of the virus will work. But we are definitely in a race against time, and if they don’t get this outbreak under control shortly we could soon be facing a worst case scenario. As I was doing research for this article, I decided to find out how many confirmed cases there were in China one week ago. According to CNN, there were 547 as of last Wednesday… Five Chinese provinces reported additional cases of the Wuhan coronavirus on Wednesday, bringing the total number of people infected in mainland China to 547. The worldwide number of cases has reached 555 on Wednesday. Now as I am writing this, the number of confirmed cases has officially risen to 7,711. The following comes from USA Today… The number of confirmed infections across China has risen to 7,711, resulting in 170 deaths. By comparison, there were 5,327 cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in China during the 2002-2003 outbreak, although that virus was more deadly, claiming 349 lives.

👉Fire Week for the Markets: between Brexit, Coronavirus Panic , and The Fed Meeting !!










The Wuhan coronavirus is spreading around the world and raising fears of a global outbreak. The number of people infected and the death toll is increasing by the day. Coronavirus cases have been found in other places out of Wuhan, Hubei Province, indicating the epidemic is expanding. Concerns are mounting. It is inevitable that people will cut their trips during the Spring Festival and holiday, consumption is being hit badly. Death toll climbs to 170 from 132, with 7,771 cases confirmed in China and 7,811 total, while the number of suspected cases has soared by 2,928 to 12,167 from 9,239 yesterday. Entire swaths of the country have been shut down. Starbucks has closed more than half its outlets. Toyota announced it will close its plants, and Google says it will temporarily close all of its Chinese offices. British Airways canceled flights to China. Russia is the latest country to partially restrict travel with China. Germany's Lufthansa and American Airlines are the latest airlines to suspend flights to China. Also, one thing that China is hiding is the number of death caused by the virus. Credible Chinese media outlet initiumnews interviewed people working at local cremation centers, confirming that many dead bodies were sent directly from the hospitals to the cremation centers without properly identifying these patients, which means there are patients who died from the virus but not adding to the official record. That shows the current death toll of 133 that we are seeing is way too low. So there are reasons to remain skeptical about what China has been sharing with the world because while they have been more transparent about certain things related to the virus, they continue to be sketchy and unreliable in other aspects. No one really, with two brain cells to rub together believes anything the Chinese government is saying or that the real numbers are anything close to being as low as what they claim. China is clearly lying about the numbers of sick and dead according to every conceivable metric and multiple leaked reports from medical personnel. It'll get worse, as you know. Current numbers are largely Chinese fabrication. Thailand, India, and others will probably be more inclined to report it more accurately if they are able. And anyone who thinks the fatality percentage is 2% is a knucklehead. Lancet says 11% and lots of deaths aren’t being reported. Probably closer to 20. Better medical care in the west might lower that a lot, but it is still going to be around 5 at least. Of course, the Chinese officials are lying about the actual number of infections and deaths. What idiot would actually believe any government trying to avoid a pandemic panic in a nation of 1.3 billion people. Looking at the numbers alone. We are to believe there are only 12,167 suspected cases and only 7,771 confirmed cases in Wuhan, a city of ~11.1 million people? The province of Hubei, which is home to Wuhan, has a population of ~58.5 million people. We are being told this virus is airborne, with human to human transmission confirmed, and a mortality rate north of 4%. The suspected cases rose by 2,928 overnight which would be a ~24.1% increase. Those types of increased percentages indicate a pandemic event occurring. So yes, just on the numbers alone, the Chinese Government is lying about the gravity of the situation. Some researchers are saying there are actually several variations of this virus, not only one, as has been claimed before. So either it is mutating faster then they thought, or several different viruses were leaked out of that Biological Lab in Wuhan. Perhaps this is why the governments are freaking out. On his radio show tonight, Hal Turner just claimed that the virus is a mixture of SARS and CORONA viruses created by The People's Liberation Army of China under something called The Nanking Command. Also, leakers from within china say the government is preparing to "defend" 11 cities in a worst-case scenario if the Coronavirus collapses China. Basically, they have a plan in place to let the rest of the nation collapse but for those 11 cities. The audio was posted on twitter. There might be a mass migration of several 10s of millions of Chinese to Europe if that happens. Maybe even a Chinese civil war. That many hungry people will storm castles if they have to eat. China is now collapsing faster than Utah's housing market. This is going to get worse folks. I am getting the feeling something really big is about to happen. Welcome to The Atlantis Report. The last days of the first month of 2020 appear complicated for the world economy under pressure from the effects of the coronavirus and the imminent exit of Great Britain from Europe. The last week of January promises to be challenging for the markets, under pressure from the impact of Chinese pneumonia, the impeachment of Donald Trump, the Fed meeting, the official launch of Brexit three years after the referendum, the last meeting of the Bank of England before the departure of Governor Mark Carney and the US GDP figure in the fourth quarter release. ​China has shut down all its stock markets until the virus is contained. Then we have the Trump Impeachment going on. The Impeachment of Donald Trump will continue this week. There are two main accusations against him. Abuse of power towards relations with Ukraine and obstruction of Congress investigations. Then we have the Fed's FOMC meeting on January 28-29. The FOMC, the Fed's monetary policy committee, meets on January 28-29. Analysts don't expect any rate decisions for Wednesday night. President Jerome Powell will look forward to developments in the situation for this early 2020, which promises to be fairly calm after the US-China deal on phase one. However, there is an expectation for what he will say about the effects of the Chinese virus on the economy. In 2019, the Fed has already cut rates three times, despite the good performance of the US economy. This week will also see the last meeting of Mark Carney's Bank of England. The Bank of England monetary policy meeting next week will be the last one led by Governor Mark Carney, whose term expires in March, and before London's official farewell to the EU. Carney said earlier this month that the Bank of England will delay any hike in interest rates until inflation is well above its target, but analysts are divided between those who don't rule out a scissor cut right away and who is convinced that Carney will leave this decision to his successor Andrew Bailey, who will take over on March 16th. And then we have Brexit with London's farewell to the EU next Friday. Brexit will stop being announced next Friday and the United Kingdom will officially leave the European Union more than three years after the referendum. The withdrawal law removed the last parliamentary obstacle and received royal consent from Queen Elizabeth II last week. Now there is only the approval of the European Parliament. An 11-month transition will begin next week which will keep the trade and security relations between London and Brussels unchanged, pending the final negotiation on Brexit. And still again we have the first data on US GDP which will arrive from the USA next Friday in the fourth quarter. Economists expect the economy to grow 2.1% annually, weighed down by lower consumer spending and reduced commercial activity. Then we have the coronavirus that still weighs on the markets. The Chinese virus does not cease to frighten the global markets, even if for experts this contagion, which so much resembles SARS and whose spread has been expanded by the great traffic of travelers of the Chinese New Year, should be short-lived because its impact it is more psychological than real. At the moment, however, the escalation of infections and victims is strong. In China, there are 2,500 infected and 80 dead. Just for some reference, the Spanish flu took roughly 4 to 6 months to become a pandemic. The Beijing authorities extended the holidays for the Lunar Year, the Chinese New Year until February 2 and closed the main offices to avoid further spread of the coronavirus in the offices. Furthermore, it is estimated that the economy of the Dragon could suffer and fall, at least for a quarter, under 6% of growth, with repercussions on the oil price and on the export of numerous goods, in particular, luxury goods. This is now the biggest quarantine un human history. the virus has an asymptomatic transmission, meaning transmission happens even when people seem healthy with zero symptoms. On The 27th January 2020, gold to paper ratio and silver to paper ratios have been removed from the Real-Time National Debt Clock and replaced with the cost of college tuition, a wealth of the 1% vs. the bottom 50%, cryptos vs. dollars, and automobile price increases. Gold and Silver off the screen? At a time when I’m reading that a cure for cancer has been found and a new Coronavirus hits humanity and the FED is in trouble. Really? I’m getting the feeling something really big is about to happen. The virus is spreading quickly and the world is on edge. So the new type of coronavirus that first appeared in Wuhan late last month continues to claim more victims. As of Wednesday morning... at least 132 people have died in China,... and 105 of them are from Wuhan. The number of confirmed cases in China has soared to near 6-thousand,... with more than half of them in Wuhan. Shanghai and the Chinese capital Beijing has reported deaths from the virus as well. Beijing confirmed on Monday a 50-year old man died of respiratory failure,... and Shanghai said on Sunday an 88-year-old man died. Experts in China say the outbreak is forecast to worsen. The head of a team of experts at China's National Health Commission said on Tuesday,... that the coronavirus will reach its peak infection rate in 7 to 10 days. However, he added, there will be no large scale growth after that. The virus is also continuing to spread to other parts of the world. The virus is popping up across the world... with more confirmed cases being reported every day. At least 17 countries and territorial entities outside mainland China have now reported confirmed cases. Luckily, no deaths from the coronavirus have been reported other than in China so far. France on Tuesday confirmed its 4th case in an elderly Chinese tourist. France's Health Ministry said the patient, who is hospitalized in Paris, is believed to be about 80 years old and is gravely ill. Japan and Germany have both confirmed cases from patients who have never been to Wuhan. Japan has at least 7 confirmed cases,... and the first confirmed patient a male bus driver in his 60s has not been to Wuhan, but drove two groups of Chinese tourists from Wuhan earlier this month. Germany has now at least 4 confirmed patients,... and the country's first confirmed patient a 33-year old German male did not visit China but was in a meeting with a female Chinese national,... who later turned out to be infected. Thailand has at least 14 diagnosed with the disease. Having the most confirmed patients outside of China,... Thailand has announced plans to screen all arrivals from China for symptoms of the coronavirus. Hong Kong has at least 8 confirmed cases. Hong Kong on Tuesday announced plans to slash cross-border travel between the city and mainland China. The virus has also spread to North America,... Canada confirmed its third case from a man in his 40s who visited Wuhan. In the U.S., at least 5 people are diagnosed with the disease, all of whom recently traveled from Wuhan. The White House officials said it's considering suspending China flights,.. and United Airlines announced it is canceling dozens of China flights next month because of a decrease in demand for flights to China. The U.S. also said it will expand screening of travelers arriving from Wuhan to 20 airports and land crossings,... and is advising people to avoid non-essential travel to any part of China. The European Commission said on Tuesday it would start helping repatriate Europeans from Wuhan on France's request. The South Korean, Japanese, American, French, and German governments are also sending chartered planes to repatriate their citizens stuck in Wuhan.

Bill Gates: The next outbreak? We’re not ready


In 2014, the world avoided a horrific global outbreak of Ebola, thanks to thousands of selfless health workers — plus, frankly, thanks to some very good luck. In hindsight, we know what we should have done better. So, now's the time, Bill Gates suggests, to put all our good ideas into practice, from scenario planning to vaccine research to health worker training. As he says, "There's no need to panic ... but we need to get going."

A Plague Of “Billions” Of Locusts Threatens To Create A Horrific End Times Famine All Over Africa











Billions of locusts are eating everything in sight in east Africa right now, and every single day many more farms are being completely wiped out. Unfortunately, authorities are telling us that what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg. In fact, if extreme measures are not implemented immediately, authorities are claiming that this locust plague could literally get “500 times” worse in a few months. But it is difficult to imagine conditions getting any worse than they are at this moment. Ravenous locust swarms that are “the size of cities” are consuming crops at a staggering pace, and this could potentially cause famine on the African continent that is unlike anything we have ever seen before. It can be difficult to imagine a plague of “billions” of locusts. After all, there are only about 7 billion people living on the entire planet. But this is actually happening. Right now “billions of locusts” are absolutely devastating east Africa, and each one can eat “its own weight in food every day”… Billions of locusts swarming through East Africa could prove disastrous for a region still reeling from drought and deadly floods, experts have warned, amid increasing calls for international help. Dense clouds of the ravenous insects, each of which consumes its own weight in food every day, have spread from Ethiopia and Somalia into Kenya, in the region’s worse infestation in decades. It would be hard to overstate what this is going to mean for the region. According to the FAO, this plague is an “unprecedented threat to food security and livelihoods in the Horn of Africa”… The United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organisation has described the situation as “extremely alarming,” representing an “unprecedented threat to food security and livelihoods in the Horn of Africa.” We have seen starvation in Africa before. In fact, there was a time when our airwaves were filled with images of starving African children. But if this plague continues to get even worse, the stage is being set for a famine that is far greater than anything that any of us have ever witnessed. The density of some of these locust swarms is absolutely crazy. According to officials, a single locust swarm can have “up to 150 million locusts per square kilometer”… “A typical desert locust swarm can contain up to 150 million locusts per square kilometer,” the East African regional body, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, has said. “Swarms migrate with the wind and can cover 62 to 93 miles in a day. An average swarm can destroy as much food crops in a day as is sufficient to feed 2,500 people.” And it is important to note that some of these swarms are many times that size. In fact, one of the largest swarms in northeastern Kenya was measures to be “60 kilometers long by 40 kilometers wide”. In other words, that swarm was far larger than any major city on the entire planet. Spraying these locusts only has limited effectiveness, but it is one of the only things that can be done at this point. Unfortunately, Kenya only has four planes currently flying, and the same goes for Ethiopia. The UN is going to step in with 10 million dollars of additional funding, but that won’t really go too far… The UN on Wednesday allocated $10 million for aerial spraying, with humanitarian chief Mark Lowcock saying families across the region “now face the prospect of watching as their crops are destroyed before their eyes.”

Serbia Economy Report : A Country torn between China and Europe











The economy of Serbia is a service-based upper-middle-income economy with the tertiary sector accounting for two-thirds of total gross domestic product. Serbia is a country that went through a lot, from the 90s Yugoslav Wars and related diplomatic and economic sanctions to the massive influx of refugees, Serb but not only, pouring in the impoverished country. Serbia faced directly a NATO military aggression with airstrikes in 1999 on its military, but also civilian infrastructures. With the consecutive abduction of its Kosovo and Metochia province, its mines, States assets, while 200,000+ new refugees were pouring into Central Serbia and Vojvodina and 100,000 Serbs remained firmly in the U.N controlled Kosovo. The consequences of this situation and of 18 years of hardcore liberalization of the economy, led under Western patronage against the interests of your daily Serb, and 25 years of ethnic shaming from the western diplomacies and media, are still felt today. But the country is one of the safest in Europe, just behind the Scandinavian countries, Belgrade is one of the safest cities in Europe. Welcome to The Atlantis Report. The Serbs are passionate, life-loving people. They love life and good living… and like rational life-loving people, they don’t like to work as long or as hard as the Germans do, for example. The Serbs went through 500 years of occupation by Ottomans, then soft communism… and they blame that for their current situation. The Germans lost almost all of their young men and had their country completely flattened in 1945, and it took them 20 years to become the top dog of Europe again. Why? Because they prefer to work than not to work. People say the Marshall Plan was the reason, but we forget that the Marshall plan was essentially just loans that allowed the Germans to rebuild factories and roads, etc.… they still had to actually work 8 hours a day or more in silence to crank out those BMW’s. And make sure they did a great job and made a fantastic car! Serbia, on the other hand, has (and always has had) dreadful productivity because of the values of its culture. A bit like the Bulgarians. Or Montenegrins, or Croats (but at least these guys have tourism, which is basically free money and proximity to the very rich West so a bit more trade and influence). Serbia imports more than they export… despite having cheap labor and being right next door to one of the biggest consumer economies in human history (Europe)! Having cheap labor should make them ideal for an export economy with lots of multi-national manufacturing firms setting up there to get cheap labor, but that’s not the case. Serb’s don’t like to work too long, or too hard - so they have a lot of cafe’s (one of the highest number of cafes per capita in Europe) and other services which are dedicated to the art of spending money for leisure, rather than making stuff to sell to others (which is hard and laborious). Think about it - why have so many cafes if the object of the population is to have high output? Sitting around having coffee and talking is not an economically conducive way to spend the finite hours in a day. Working in a factory or office very hard without talking is. When millions of people do this, the ‘economy’ shows its character in higher output and GDP. Economics is not complicated at all when you fully comprehend the basic building blocks, which is what people do every day of their lives. There is also corruption and things like that, but that’s just another side effect of a culture predicated on making easy money, without too much hard work, and without actually delivering something of value to other people. Corruption is just the purest example of the allocation of the velocity of money towards unproductive ends, and societies that have a lot of it indicate the kind of culture you can expect there generally. It’s not the reason for poverty, but just another side effect of the culture that produces poverty generally. So why does Serbia have a bad economy? A lot of reasons, all related to the same cause: the violent dislocation of Yugoslavia at the expense of the Serbs : Two millions of abducted Serbs from Yugoslavia in the 1990s, 300,000 more in 2006 with the NATO propelled separation of Montenegro from Serbia. Years of economic sanctions in the 1990s and the consequences of the Wars on the Serbian society It led more than 500,000 refugees to come to Serbia but also 2.5 more million of Serbs from Serbia on the road of exile from 1991 to today. The “Serbian market shrunk to less than 60% of what it should be. Serbia lost eight years of economic development there, its GDP per capita shrinking by half instead of growing by a third to a half. From 40 billion US Dollars in 1990 to 19 in 1999. Thirty billion US Dollars at least of infrastructure damages.Military bases, but not only; bridges, railways, media-stations, factories, chemical plants, various civilian infrastructures were also destroyed. The country having to indebt itself to repair a part of the damages done by the NATO aggression and its Airstrikes between the 24 March and 10 June 1999. Serbia lost a whole year of GDP in these damages. And lost four additional years of economic development, reaching only in 2003 its 1999 GDP. Environmental damages, sicknesses, and mental pathologies related to the Yugoslav Wars and the bombings of the Serbian cities in the 1990s, which are a burden for the Serbian health-system, the Serbs daily life and productivity. The Loss of the Kosovo mines, which once represented 70% of the Kosovo province GDP, and 5% of the whole Serbia GDP. A few years later, the U.S led diplomacy obtained from Serbia a change of legal structure of these mines, so the Kosovo Albanians and their foreign “investors” could take them legally. The Loss of the Montenegrin coastline in 2006, and hence devastation of the remaining Serbian tourism industry and Belgrade’s capability to operate an independent trade policy through its access to international waters. While Montenegrins still enjoy privileges in Serbia because they are still considered as Serbs. For example, the famous Slobodan Milosevich was himself a Montenegrin Serb from both his parents. Privatization, sometimes for ridiculous prices, of the Serbian public companies (damaged by the war or not) and, by treacherous (or simply Western indoctrinated and weak ) Leaders sponsored by the West. the Washington Consensus was imposed on Serbia, who needed foreign investors anyway to bring fresh cash and hence guarantees so Serbia could borrow on the foreign markets the money needed to rebuild itself… Corruption, lack of rule of Law, criminality, institutionalized racket against workers, policies inherited from the 90s and amplified. Studies are not free for everyone anymore, per example. In addition to the remains of the “socialist Yugoslavia mentality” where debilitated socio-economic, industrial and monetary policies were put in place and crippled Yugoslavia through the excessive importance given to ideology against reality, and to the republics against the Federation. Both components leading to the 90s violent dislocation of Yugoslavia. The economic crisis was a fertile ground for disunion, selfishness, and nationalism. Especially when the related issues have been at the same time thrown under the rug and… enshrined in the 1974 “powder-keg” constitution of Yugoslavia. Today, Serbia’s GDP is 20% below what it was in 1989, and 10% lower if we consider a per-capita PPP GDP. For the sake of clarity, let’s say Serbia’s GDP is 40 billion US dollars today, like in 1990, aka. 6,000 US Dollars per capita. If Kosovo and Metochia, Montenegro, and the Republika Srpska were reunified today, Serbian GDP would amount to approx 50 billion US Dollars. and grow fast to 60 billion due to the recovery and reopening of the mines in Kosovo, then to 80 billion in 2025 and 100 billion in 2030 due to the recovered hopes from the Serbian civil society’s into Serbia’s future and the probable return of a few hundred thousands of Serbs in Serbia. If only the current Serbia was never economically sanctioned nor attacked, and Kosovo not taken away, Serbian GDP would probably revolve today around 100 billion US dollars. with the same emigration and 125 billion US Dollar without. If both previous situations were united into one, Serbian GDP would be today beyond 150 billion US dollars. Today, approximatively 30% behind Croatia per capita (11,500 US dollars. instead of 16,000). And aim to 200 billion US dollars. in 2030 (more than 15,000 US Dollars per capita). The current reality and future perspectives are much less bright. But these fundamentals are based on temporary FDI heavily subsidized by the Serbian State, as well as exceptional resources through the sale of State-Assets. It will be long before we see Serbian business prospers, and the worker wages rise to decent levels; the only way to really judge the real performances of a market-oriented economy as Serbia is more and more today. If Serbia GDP reaches a GDP of 60 billion US dollars. (9,000 per capita, with 400 US dollars. as a minimum monthly wage and 800 as an average one) in 2030, that would already be very good… And yet far to be enough to compete with the life-standards of an average Croat in Croatia or even Romanian in Romania. Serbia is a country with a complicated history. And things are still complicated. Some Serbians want to join the European Union to enjoy all the financial benefits, but the standards to get in are really high, and other Serbians aren’t sure whether they can even meet those standards. In fact, there are so many forces pulling every which way— that even the two-headed eagle on the Serbian flag seems unsure which way to go. And that’s when China showed up with billions of dollars. The Chinese Communist Party has offered to make Serbia the European heart of its massive Belt and Road Initiative, also known as One Belt, One Road. That’s the plan to spread Chinese investment around the world. And this offer has put Serbia at a difficult crossroads. Serbia has officially been a *candidate* for EU membership since 2012. But it is bad the earliest it could get into the EU is 2025— and maybe not at all if it doesn’t shape up. On the other hand, China is battling the European Union using Serbia as the European hub of trade in the Belt and Road Initiative. Xi Jinping said he would make Serbia the European hub of the Belt and Road infrastructure plan. But these Chinese investments could put Serbia into deep debt— what’s called “debt-trap diplomacy.” We’ve seen it before in Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Djibouti. Chinese loans come in, but the country can’t repay them. China is purposefully plunging recipient countries into debt, then going after what’s in soil, like minerals and rare earth metals. Also, there’s the danger that China’s investment might target critical technologies and strategic industries. This was The Atlantis Report. Please Like. Share. And Subscribe.

👉Will Coronavirus Trigger A Markets MegaCrash or will The FED Magic Market Rigging Continue ?









Nobody really knows what effect the coronavirus will have on the global and US economy. But everybody knows that the Fed will continue kicking the can to the very limits of human perception (and beyond) for as long as their bamboozlers can bamboozle. The Markets have been poised for turmoil for a while now. It's already on a knife-edge because central bankers have failed the world. But the FED's plan is to keep the fire hose going full blast no matter what. A Market overvalued, global recession... US budget deficit growing. The only growth in the world has been more debt. organic growth has been negative for years. This virus is also being grossly underrepresented. So why is the market still so high? three main factors. QE, buybacks, and 401k contributions. each, at the margin, is buyers at any price to the tune of tens of billions A MONTH. QE is an enabler of socialism/communism by removing any correlation between return and risk, cancellation of the time value of money combined with the assumption that the value of work can be replaced with money printing buybacks facilitate the takeover of companies by the very management that should be accountable to shareholders 401k's are growing at the rate of a trillion a year from contributions that primarily are diverted to passive "index" funds. We are in a recession since 2008. The boom is only emulated by the printing press. it's not rocket science. The unwind of QE, the outlawing of buybacks and the retirement of 401k holders will see a ten-year bear market year with drops of 40-50% like the 2000-2010 and the 1970-1980 bear markets when the S&P dropped by 40-50% - taking the S&P back to 1,500 or thereabouts. Of course, ALL future savers for retirement, etc can continue to be forced into buying overpriced housing and capital market assets (bonds and equities globally) that guarantee they live with less wealth and money than their parents for decades. Socialism has infected the planet and is cancer constantly eroding life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The stock market is no more the economy per se. And anyone who knows anything about markets understands that it is merely a hologram waiting to be turned off when the machine is ready to grind the USA into protoplast patties. Now with their coronavirus unleashed, that day is not far down the line. Get ready for the orange swan to get cooked. Coronavirus fears are already having a negative impact on Chinese markets and the economy as a whole, amid concerns of a global outbreak. China alone being the center of the world's supply chain. And as Wuhan residents are falling unconscious left and right. Major thoroughfares in a city with 11 million people are empty. The impact on all of China is horrendous economically. Those possibilities mean falling stock prices for U.S. firms especially exposed to the Chinese market, and to the travel sector. Wynn Resorts and Las Vegas Sands, U.S.-based casino firms that own major properties in the Chinese territory of Macau, are both down more than 6 percent on Monday. U.S. airline stocks are also hurting — Delta is down 3.8 percent, American is down 5.4 percent — reflecting concerns that the epidemic will encourage people to delay or cancel travel plans. And Disney, whose theme parks in Hong Kong and Shanghai are closed due to the outbreak, is down 2.3 percent today. China's economy is gonna go down faster than bottles of vodka and pills at Nancy Pelosi's house. My guess is a 10% chance of black swan type to halve the markets. 30% chance that it will cause just a bear market. And a 60% chance that it will cause a minor stock drop and then stocks will climb a wall of worry. The market is toppy regardless of corona anyways. Mission accomplished. Now they can blame the virus for the upcoming financial crash and no one sees that the Baltic Dry Index was on record low already before we even heard about Corona. Time to bet against the Fed. People are going to stay at home. The Chinese economy is going to be hit first, then Western economies. There will be panic buying of supplies, but it won't offset the massive reduction in overall economic activity. Interest rate cuts and money printing are not going to save the market this time. Welcome to The Atlantis Report. The prime reason that this silly flu virus has any economic impact/effect is that America's and the West's treacherous elite gutted and shipped America's, and much of the West's, manufacturing and industrial base to China, to take advantage of China's slave labor. We are talking about trillions of dollars here. Now, America and the West are tied at the hip economically to a dictatorship that weaponized a common flu virus and allowed it to escape a lab and infect its own country and many other countries. All of this so that the globalists could put more shekels in their bank accounts. Whether the outbreak is the result of a cross species transfer of a virus, due to the eating of wild animals amid unsanitary conditions. Or a bio-weapons project gone awry the Chinese government has some explaining to do. Either scenario for how this started has the Chinese on the hook. Apparently, the first case came along by December 1. A People's Party Congress was held in Wuhan January 15-17. Accounts say that so as not to lose face, local officials did nothing until after the end of the meeting. Many people came to Wuhan during that period and left all over China at the close of the conclave. Some left when they realized there was an illness afoot in Wuhan. Officials told people nothing. This delay likely allowed the disease to propagate throughout China, at least. The regime in China is incompetent and a danger to the world. Their legitimacy has now fallen to zero. It is lower than a snake's belly. This whole thing has been engineered to mask China's economic collapse! They're losing control of the one-party narrative there. China’s Coronavirus Has Revived Global Economic Fears. As the global economy is already in a period of vulnerability. An exogenous shock, such as the coronavirus, could be the trigger for the next worldwide recession. The spread of the dangerous virus has spooked global markets and threatened prospects for economic growth. There is hardly anything good that can be hoped for economically because of the new virus. Increased sales of masks and other protective gear, will hardly pick up the slack. With the world economy operating dangerously close to stall speed, the confluence of ever-present shocks and a sharply diminished trade cushion raises serious questions about financial markets' increasingly optimistic view of global economic prospects. Investors seem seriously spooked by the spreading Wuhan coronavirus epidemic. The stock markets shrugged off the Coronavirus yesterday and staged a buy-the-dip rally. Are they right to discount the threat? It's not about infection rates or mortality - the economic damage is already very real. Prices of crude oil and other commodities have fallen sharply since last week due to the deadly new coronavirus. Observers are bracing for a repeat of the 2003 SARS shock when an epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome in China rocked world markets. China's economy is also more fragile today. The coronavirus emerged after a period of slowing growth and a tense trade war with the United States. China's consumers play a bigger role in the country's economy now than they did back in 2003, and so far, that's where most of the costs of this outbreak have appeared. Airlines and resort companies have seen their stocks fall in anticipation of reduced demand from China. The outbreak could also make it harder for China to make good on the big purchases of U.S. goods that were promised in the newly announced Phase 1 trade deal. China's economy is much weaker than in 2003 when it began growing at double-digit rates, fueled by resources from around the world. Chinese companies vacuumed up Australian iron ore and other minerals and demand for oil soared. U.S. crude futures fell to around $25 per barrel at the onset of the SARS epidemic but rebounded swiftly to $30 before breaking the $50 mark in 2004. It was the early stage of the commodities "supercycle," or the lengthy commodities boom of the early 21st century. The Chinese economy has also been buffeted by a trade war with the United States. The two countries signed a truce earlier this month that was expected to provide some economic relief. Then the viral outbreak hit. There is uncertainty about the extent to which the epidemic will spread and intensify. Markets react negatively to increases in uncertainty; investors will be waiting for more clarity on how severe, and how disruptive, this outbreak will prove. That rise in uncertainty has investors moving away from risky equities and toward safer investments like bonds. But every economic storm brings a silver lining of opportunity, though. Some of today's big winners on Wall Street include a company that's working on a vaccine for the coronavirus as well as a firm that makes protective masks. The Coronavirus is way more grave then they make it seem. Millions of Chinese are stuck in cities in complete lockdown. The significant decline in travel has already caused United Airlines to suspend some flights to Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. Although the Federal Reserve Board can endlessly create US dollars out of nothing, and that will continue to be backed by the US military as much as possible. AND, that even more so is the case for China, and everywhere else which controls its own central banking systems to backstop the ever-increasing multiplier of fractional reserve banking. There are still relatively objective limits, outside of any human control, to the abilities to continue to enforce frauds which become exponentially more fraudulent. Although I would agree with the pity saying that it is not now a wise strategy for the individual investors to attempt to fight the Fed. Since the collective irrationalities seem far greater than any individualized attempts at rationality. The degree to which the banksters can control civilization through controlling the public money supplies still has relatively objective limits. Whereby the Everything Bubble is prone to popping, despite abilities to endlessly create more money out of nothing as debts.Even with negative interest rates, as the cherry on the cake of the maliciousness maximization of the combined money and murder systems. Pandemics have ALWAYS been the most probable man-made mega-disasters. Although those would be orders less in possible magnitude to what the Sun could do, as the most probable of natural megadisasters. In my view, the greatest overall vulnerability of systems based on making money out of nothing as debts were that paid for strip-mining the natural resources of a fresh planet with the series of technologies provided by industrial revolutions. I believe that we are just beginning to reach the tipping points where the about exponentially increasing amounts of MAD Money as Debt; are no longer working the ways those used to do. Because of all the issues surrounding the diminishing returns from strip-mining the planet. An out of human control pandemic could pop the Everything Bubble. However, the deeper issues still arise after that pandemic played through, that everything was built on the basis of being able to strip-mine a fresh planet, while that planet is no longer as fresh as it once was, and never will be again. Strip-mining the planet with money made out of nothing as debts did NOT actually pay for anything, other than to high-grade to hell since everything was built on the basis of being able to consume the best quality resources as fast as possible. Hence, the issues of diminishing returns are getting worse, faster, as the longer-term consequences of Civilization operating through fundamentally fraudulent financial accounting systems. Overall, we are collectively preparing to commit suicide, while the ever-increasing threats from possible pandemics are illustrations of those trends. There are NO black swan events now. The FED IS THE DOW. The FED is in total control of the now top-down, centralized economy. All the data, all the curves and graphs, all the P/E ratios and fundamentals are nothing more than a grotesque FARCE! This is total market rigging on every front. The FED IS THE DOW!!! There are NO markets. There is only FED rigging and buying and rigging and buying. Rinse and repeat. All asset prices are detached from reality and the fundamentals that once upon a time long ago used to drive the markets. And Even if the virus kills everyone on earth; the computers will still keep trading until the power goes out. This Was The Atlantis Report. Please Like. Share. And Subscribe. Thank You.

Unprecedented World Chaos..Earthquakes..Disease..Extreme Weather









Everything is unfolding just as the bible foretold. Wars, Volcanic Eruptions, Earthquakes, Extreme Weather, Christian Persecution, Violence and more! Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Max Keiser : The poop float in Davos







In this episode of Keiser Report, Max and Stacy survey the wreckage caused in no small part due to the 199 billionaires who met in Davos the previous week. They ask how is it that the world’s 2,153 billionaires have more wealth than 4.6 billion humans combined. They examine the unfolding disaster at Boeing as the company begs for ten billions in loans after the former engineering powerhouse was turned into a wealth extraction financial instrument which led to death of innocent passengers and destruction of untold capital and future economic growth. In the second half, Max interviews Mark Yusko of Morgan Creek Capital about QE Forever, too much debt and no demand, buybacks as stealth QE, and how the market has become the economy.

Inside Wuhan: Daily life in China's coronavirus quarantine zone








Ben Kavanagh is working as a teacher in Wuhan - the city under quarantine as the deadly coronavirus continues to spread across China . He told us he was planning to venture out of his home one last time today to buy food and essential supplies before being stuck in his flat for the duration of the lockdown. He took his phone along to film it all for us. China's health minister has also warned that the virus is 'getting stronger'. 56 people have now died and more than 2,000 are infected - with many of those infected not yet displaying symptoms.

👉Is Coronavirus part of the Bio warfare being waged against China using Drones ?!







The mystery surrounding the coronavirus becomes denser and denser by the day. As doubts arise about its origin, and Everything seemingly points to biowarfare being waged against China. According to the medical journal The Lancet, the first case of infection dates back to December 1st, 2019, and the person infected had not been to the Wuhan fish market. Further critical points have also been raised by some independent journalists. Now we know that in The Wuhan bio lab, The Chinese were experimenting with a modified SARS virus for military purposes. At least three other countries have been doing the same for years, the United States, Russia, and China. We found three news in this regard. The first news dates back to 2014, and it announces the construction by China and France of a Bio Laboratory for the research on infectious viruses in china. And guess in which city it was built? none other than Wuhan. The second news, which is connected to the first is of 2015, in which the Pirbright Institute a British government-funded pharmaceutical company asks and obtains a patent for the coronavirus, that can also serve according to the patent as a vaccine to prevent respiratory lungs disease such as contagious bronchitis. The third news is about the Bill Gates foundation funding Biotech companies that are trying to develop vaccines against the deadly Wuhan Coronavirus. Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation & Others Predicted Up To 65 Million Deaths Via Coronavirus – In Simulation Ran just 3 Months Ago. I wouldn’t be surprised if both the US Military and the CIA were directly involved in the development of the deadly coronavirus strain. Bear in mind, the 2014 Ebola outbreak came as a result of another rogue US Military operation in Africa in which the Soros/Gates-funded Kenema bioweapons lab in Sierra Leone was involved. Surprisingly enough, this rogue US military operation came shortly after Mark Lambert’s appointment as the new US ambassador in the United Nations – as an effort to prevent and thwart China’s “aggressive influence” over the UN Security Council’s future decisions. And John Bolton. What was he doing at the Gates meeting? Welcome To The Atlantis Report. Everything apparently points to biowarfare being waged against China. The culprits are the Western Powers, namely The US and Britain. The objective is to put “stress” on China in a combined effort to contain her growing power and influence. The tool: The Coronavirus. The best bio-weapons are not going to kill everyone immediately. They burn through too many hosts and die out. Best to make a virus that infects everyone and causes the infrastructure to fail with massive numbers of the sick. Kinda what is happening in China right now. Look at Ebola, it kills too fast and dies out relatively quickly. Coronavirus , officially called the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV). Its contagion is a respiratory illness, a new type of viral pneumonia, in the same family of infections as SARS and MERS. It is highly contagious, up to 2-week incubation and patients with no symptoms. Just the perfect recipe for a global outbreak. I doubt any country is prepared for this. Wuhan a city of 11 million is completely shut down, is estimated to have over 25,000 confirmed cases and over 43,000 infections. Wuhan lockdown doesn’t really help to stop spreading in other major cities in China. Chongqing can be the most affected, followed by Beijing Shanghai Guangzhou Shenzhen. China has over 50 million people on lockdown right at this very moment, just give that a little bit of thought. OVER 50 MILLION PEOPLE. And by the way, China is always lying about figures and statistics. The Coronavirus is way more grave then they make it seem. Millions of Chinese are stuck in cities in complete lockdown. The first case in Germany was just reported. By now it is spreading across the States and Europe. Meanwhile, most stocks are hovering around their all-time highs. Remember that after the SARS breakout we went down to -40 percent. And SARS was NOTHING compared to this one. This is the moment to prevent getting a hit with your pension money. I suspect there will be follow up releases until desired population levels are achieved. If they released this there is nothing stopping them from releasing engineered Smallpox, Marsburg, Anthrax and so on. Or god knows what kind of chimera's they have created. And rising speculation it was engineered could be steered by the US as an accidental release from the level 4 facility 20 miles from the fish market. Extremely slick. Wonder if Xi has it figured out. Probably. It's a dead certainty Putin has. Another article by the blacklistednews.com reports under the title: DID CHINA STEAL CORONAVIRUS FROM CANADA AND WEAPONIZE IT. Last year a mysterious shipment was caught smuggling Coronavirus from Canada. It was traced to Chinese agents working at a Canadian lab. A subsequent investigation by GreatGameIndia linked the agents to the Chinese Biological Warfare Program from where the virus is suspected to have leaked causing the Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak. Coronavirus arrived at Canada’s NML Winnipeg facility on May 4, 2013, from the Dutch lab. The Canadian lab grew up stocks of the virus and used it to assess diagnostic tests being used in Canada. Winnipeg scientists worked to see which animal species can be infected with the new virus. The research was done in conjunction with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s national lab, the National Centre for Foreign Animal Diseases which is housed in the same complex as the National Microbiology Laboratory. In March 2019, in the mysterious event, a shipment of exceptionally virulent viruses from Canada’s NML Lab ended up in China. The event caused a major scandal with Bio-warfare experts questioning why Canada was sending lethal viruses to China. Scientists from NML said the highly lethal viruses were a potential bio-weapon. Following the investigation, the incident was traced to Chinese agents working at NML. Four months later in July 2019, a group of Chinese virologists was forcibly dispatched from the Canadian National Microbiology Laboratory (NML). The NML is Canada’s only level-4 facility and one of only a few in North America equipped to handle the world’s deadliest diseases, including Ebola, SARS, Coronavirus, etc. People have speculated that there might be a connection between these two events. Perhaps, they wonder, that the Chinese have been stealing the weaponized viral agents. Perhaps, they wonder, that they were caught and then expelled from NWL. But maybe something else was going on. Perhaps, something else that had to be done in secret and kept away from the Chinese scientists. Three months later… On October 18th the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, in conjunction with the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, brought together “15 leaders of business, government, and public health” to simulate a scenario in which a coronavirus pandemic was ravaging the planet. Major participants were American military leadership and certain neocon political figures. The Chinese were not invited. The members took notes, and then returned to their day to day operations. Two months later a very similar coronavirus pandemic hit China. The first occurrences in December thus appeared to be of minor concern. The incubation period has not been definitively stated but, once infections began, the spread was surprisingly rapid after the first case was confirmed. The initial symptoms were mild, which permitted many people to travel before stronger symptoms were detected. On December 31, 2019, the World Health Organization was informed of an outbreak of “pneumonia of unknown cause” detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China – the seventh-largest city in China with 11 million residents. As of January 26, there are over 2019 cases of 2019-nCoV confirmed globally, including cases in at least 20 regions in China and nine countries. Did Trump trade war went viral? For some reason, ever since the “Trump trade war”, China has been hit with unusually dangerous and lethal germs, viral agents, and illnesses that have attacked livestock and people. Asian Lineage Avian Influenza Virus. China’s African swine fever outbreak is unprecedented. Unusual virus strains caused a flu outbreak in China. Just Google for viral outbreaks in China. Ever since President Donald Trump became President and incorporated Neocon “War Hawks” on his negotiation team, China has been wracked with all sorts of new, novel, and unusually lethal strains of viral agents. All of which cripple the Chinese people, food and livestock. Keep in mind that this was during the peak of the Trump trade wars, and at a time when remotely operated drones were spraying swine flu and decimating the Chinese pig population. The Swine flu was in fact propagated by drones in China. As strange as it seems, the complete collapse of the pig farm industry in China in 2019 was propagated by drones. This is why so many isolated pig farms became infected. The official narrative talks about Chinese gangs using drones to spray the pigs with flu to devastate the pork industry. Chinese criminals have been intentionally spreading African swine fever to force farmers to sell their pigs for a low price before smuggling the meat and selling it on as healthy stock, state media has reported. The disease has reduced the country’s pig herds by over 40 percent because of mass culls designed to stop it from spreading further according to the South China Morning Post. One of China’s biggest animal feed producers says it has reverted to using a radio transmitter to combat drones. Half of the world's pigs lived in China before the epidemic began a year ago. The latest estimates are that roughly 300 million to 350 million pigs have been lost to the disease. Have you ever heard of this? It’s using technology to destroy an entire national industry. And it’s blamed on “criminal gangs”. I know that gangs are powerful, but why would they ever want to destroy a national resource? That is like Tony Suprano conspiring to sink every container ship in every port in the United States. It does not add up. Could this all be part of biowarfare against China? and This is not the first time a biowar is waged against China . The employment of Biological Warfare against the Chinese by the Japanese military had a long-lasting impact in China. The Chinese also claim (whether sound or unsound) that the United States conducted Biological Warfare offensive operations in China (and North Korea) during the Korean War (1950–53), alongside with the evident fact that between 1950 and 1972, the US possessed an operational Biological Warfare arsenal. For all the naysayers out there calling this the common cold, or comparing it to SARS, let me remind you . 1) China never before locked down a majority of it’s most populated cities....just think about the economic impact that is going to have before this peaks. 2) From Nov 02-Feb 03, SARS infected 8000 and killed approximately 800. In half that time, we are already 50% + there. That is IF you even believe the official numbers. 3) I believe the theory that 99-100 thousands+ are infected and thousands have died. 4) The US isn't even quarantining or really stopping Chinese flights or people coming into the US from these areas. In other words, many have gotten through. 5) It is likely already in India and other countries. We aren’t even looking at those flights or people. And what about the Economic impact? The Chinese economy is at a crossroads. They're losing a trade war. The party is losing control starting with Hongkong. The outbreak is a welcome opportunity to seize more properties and exercise more control. I can't even imagine what the Chinese are thinking right now. Number one they have "lost face" with the entire world. Their entire markets for manufacturing, production, and distribution are totally crushed. Two, they are probably wondering, was this their "Pearl Harbor" that is happening right now. And three, who the hell is to blame for this and retaliate against. I think the Davos crowd now considers runaway global warming to be a dire threat to their future and China a dire threat to their hegemonic control. Release an engineered virus in the right place at the right time and voila! The BRICS forming their own financial system, their own kind of SWIFT, their own internet, their own world-trade-currencies. This divides the world and yes this is a very healthy step out of a dark killing system. The Cabal losing control over their own casino fake-money-system, even that they possess the fastest computer systems in the world. Deeply desperate sucking greedy to draw more and more more and more wealth out of the world actually. "Let's drop a virus (bomb) and for our chosen a clean vaccination patent. Wuahh that's scary and that's why we look away from darkness instead to look and face it. The Governments do not give two shakes of a fly's arse about you or your loved ones, Most likely the only one who does is yourself. Get prepped right now! Extreme isolation seems to be the best way to survive this. My respect to the Chinese citizens, they are fighting the situation with such high discipline, most western comfort-zone poopsers don't have anymore. This was The Atlantis Report. Please Like. Share.
