1- Markets set to plunge, again.
Markets around the world opened lower today after a weekend marked by reports of rising numbers of infections and deaths from the virus. U.S. futures have slipped more than 3% and share benchmarks in many Asian markets logged sharp losses as still more governments tightened restrictions.
DML: Never has the market been so erratic over something so unproven. The numbers of human deaths do not support the death of so many businesses and market values.
2-Democrats reject virus bill, send Senate into chaos
Hopes for sanity in DC melted down Sunday night when the GOP-controlled Senate failed to move forward with considering the 1.4 trillion “Phase Three” stimulus package intended to help businesses and families devastated by the downturn over the coronavirus outbreak.
The vote came while at least five GOP senators were in self-quarantine, including Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who became the first U.S. senator to announce he tested positive for the virus. Senators were asked to practice social distancing and were given a list of health guidelines to follow while entering the chamber. Mike Lee, R-Utah and Mitt Romney, R-Utah, announced they would quarantine since they had exposure to Paul.
Senator Mitch McConnell excoriated Senate Democrats and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for blocking the shell bill Sunday. Pelosi and the House had just returned from a weeklong recess. She had urged colleagues to “take responsibility” as Democrats prepared their own draft. Many Democrats had complained that the draft aid package did not go far enough to provide health care and unemployment aid for Americans, and failed to put restraints on a proposed $500 billion “slush fund” for corporations, saying the ban on corporate stock buy-backs are weak and the limits on executive pay would last only two years.
DML: This many change by 10:30am when I am live on TeamDML.com, be sure to tune in.
3-Trump hints at possibility of less-restrictive approach in coronavirus fight
President Trump tweeted Sunday that his administration will reassess its response to the coronavirus outbreak at the end of the 15-day period that calls on Americans to limit their normal behaviors in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.
Businesses across the U.S. have been turned on their heads as federal, state and local governments called for drastic measures to block more infections. Stocks on Wall Street plunged to their worst losses in more than three decades. “We cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself,” the president tweeted in caps lock, before announcing the reassessment.
DML: Yes, they listen to me at the White House. How do you think he got elected in the first place.
4- Crazy Cuomo call for streets to be shut down so people can walk in distances from each other
As an order requiring most New Yorkers to stay home from work and not gather in groups outside their families took effect Sunday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo called to ban more cars from New York City streets to slow the coronavirus pandemic.
Cuomo asked local officials to figure out a plan that could include closing parks, closing playgrounds or opening streets, many of them typically teeming with traffic but now largely quiet. “You have much less traffic in New York City because non-essential workers aren’t going to work,” Cuomo said. “Get creative: Open streets to reduce the density. You want to go for a walk? God bless you. You want to go for a run? God bless you.”
DML: What an asshole. (I’m sorry, I’ve never cursed in a morning briefing before today, but lets remember this guy’s brother is the host at 9pm on CNN. What an ass backwards family.)
5- 63-year old’s infections are now gone, credits DML CBD products
This hit my inbox this morning from our customer Carole Wilson. “wanted you to know what DML CBD has done for me. In addition to sleeping better and having more energy, I’m happy to report the following:
A) I’ve been taking it since you started selling it (July 2019), and this is the first year since 1993 that I have not had a sinus infection. I have not changed anything else and have had a couple colds this year that would have normally caused a sinus infection. The colds were shorter duration as well. So I thank you for that.
B) Phoenix, AZ has had a lot of rain the last month or so and we spent over 5 hours pulling weeds in the yard yesterday. I was very sore from all the bending & pulling. I’m 63 and not horribly out of shape but with my Fibromyalgia, extended movements I’m not used to doing will tend to make me sore. I rubbed my Miracle Me on the sore muscles and it took that soreness away – glad I have my Miracle Me!
DML: I promised that throughout the COVID-19 outbreak that I would give away free bottles of DML PURE CBD SOFTGELS 900mg. Why? Because in addition to offering so many health and wellness benefits, some of them highlighted by Carole, CBD is proven to help boost the immune system. Many of the people who get better from COVID-19 are reported to have strong immune systems. Add to that — CBD also helps fight off certain bacteria. My suggestion to everyone is to take advantage of my free offer while supplies last, and get the DML CBD SOFTGELS and MIRACLE ME combo. You will get a free bottle. It is explained on my website.
