1-California goes radical
California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday evening announced he’s enacting a “statewide order” for its nearly 40 million residents to “stay at home,” a wide-reaching measure for the most populous state in the country as the coronavirus spreads.
The order took effect at midnight Friday. The order prohibits gatherings outside and requires nonessential businesses to close. The measure is intended to slow the spread of the virus. “We need to bend the curve in the state of California,” Newsom said during a news conference. “There’s a social contract here. People, I think, recognize the need to do more. They will adjust and adapt as they have.”
Public events have been canceled and bars, dine-in restaurants, gyms and clubs will be closed. Essential services such as grocery stores, pharmacies and banks will stay open.
Newsom’s office projected the virus will infect more than half of California’s within two months, according to a letter he sent to President Trump on Wednesday where he said the state has been disproportionately impacted.
DML: This is comical. Any state that elects Jerry Brown and Gavin Newsom suffers from a lot more than the China virus. The spread of insanity in that state is overwhelming.
2–McConnell stimulus plan would pay Americans free money
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday introduced legislation to provide as much as $1,200 per person and $2,400 per couple in the U.S. amid the coronavirus outbreak and skyrocketing jobless claims.
The draft legislation would provide minimum payments of $600, and aid would be phased down at adjusted gross income thresholds of $75,000 for individuals and $150,000 per couple. Additionally, there would be $500 payments for each child. The rebate amount is slated to then be reduced by $5 for each $100 a taxpayer’s income exceeds the legislation’s threshold. The amount is therefore reduced to zero for single taxpayers with incomes exceeding $99,000 and $198,000 for joint filers.
The IRS would determine income based on taxpayers’ 2018 tax returns, or 2019 tax returns in cases where there is no 2018 return — a provision The Federalist’s Sean Davis called “idiotic,” given that many “jobs or businesses disappeared within the last month.” Qualifying income includes earned income, as well as Social Security retirement benefits and certain compensation and pension benefits paid to veterans.
DML – Never in my life have I seen this country so ass backwards, and I hate to say it but this is the new norm. This is the new flu season.
3-Dianne Feinstein, 3 Senate colleagues sold off stocks before coronavirus crash: reports
Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California and three of her Senate colleagues sold off stocks worth millions of dollars in the days before the coronavirus outbreak crashed the market, according to reports.
The data is listed on a U.S. Senate website containing financial disclosures from Senate members. Feinstein, who serves as ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and her husband sold between $1.5 million and $6 million in stock in California biotech company Allogene Therapeutics, between Jan. 31 and Feb. 18, The New York Times reported.
Reports identified the three other senators as Richard Burr of North Carolina, Kelly Loeffler of Georgia and James Inhofe of Oklahoma, all Republicans. Burr, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, used more than 30 transactions to dump between $628,000 and $1.72 million on Feb. 13, according to ProPublica.
DML – The real problem is Burr, who used his insider information. I will discuss this today at 10:30am exclusively on TeamDML.com
4- Stocks set to get a pop
U.S. equity futures may add to recent gains on hopes government and central bank action can shield the world economy from a looming recession caused by the coronavirus. The major futures indexes are indicating gains of 4 percent, or about 800 Dow points, when Wall St. begins trading on Friday.
DML – Don’t get tricked. Anything can happen over the weekend.
5- A bunch of testimonials impossible to ignore
(A) This one is from Chestine.
“I am 72, and my husband is 76. We have 2 daughters, both are handicapped. Both are living at home. The oldest ( 53) has many issues and has never left home. The younger daughter, TERI (51), was in a horrific car wreck 30 years ago. She is a cancer widow who after nursing her husband over a yea lost her home, and so she had to move back home with us. Teri lives with what the doctor calls “suicidal pain”, all the time. She is on morphine tablets. My husband has severe dementia. I have purchased several of your DML STARTER PACKS to try to help with our family’s health issues. Your Miracle Me CBD really is a miracle. Using Miracle Me and the DML PURE CBD TINCTURES, Teri’s pain has for the first time ever decreased noticeably. I have also put my husband on the DML PURE CBD 900mg softgels. I see your products as being life changing for our family.You can freely use anything I write as a testimonial. Thank you.
(B) This in from Terry.
I work in retail (I prefer not to say where). I am around people all the time and we did not close our store while the Chinese virus hit our state last week. It is getting worse each day! People have been coming in and buying up everything we have in stock, and I am trapped helping them. Dealing with so many people I felt a flu coming on and was panicked. My sister is a huge fan of yours and uses all your CBD products. She brought them over to me immediately and I started using a combination based on what she says she heard you used. I used the gels, the oil drops, the gummy, and the body oil (love the name Miracle Me). Within 24 hours I felt the difference. Three days later I was back to be my old self. I am feeling fine and still dealing with all the people coming into the store. I am a customer for life. Your products are amazing.
(C) This in from Scott.
I bought the DML COMBO PACK last month and instantly recognized the positive impact on my sleep. Like you I take two softgels each day and use the MIRACLE ME BODY OIL like there is no tomorrow. I wanted to say that I used CBD products in the past and they did nothing. You, your news, and your CBD are the real deal and I look forward to the day when I can vote for you to be president. Thanks for giving me my life back because until I started taking your products I was in constant pain and couldn’t sleep. I feel great again.
DML: The spread of coronavirus is real, although I will say the media is overplaying it some — the world is not ending. But with that said, more people will test positive this weekend, and the numbers will pop. More states will crack down, and truth is more people will get sick. It is common to hear doctors on TV say the immune system plays a huge part in people’s recovery. I am not a doctor, and you should always consult with your doctor in times like these. But for me, and my wife, and my kids (who are adults), and for thousands of my customers, the DML CBD products are working wonders in helping the immune system to be strong. Therefore, I am running a special on everything we have in stock because I want people to boost their immune system now. Here are the deals we have today. Buy before 2pm ET, and they will ship today!
