Today is July 19 and I am Dennis Michael Lynch. Below are my opinions on the stories grabbing headlines this morning. I hope you share this briefing as doing so will make you the smartest person in the room, in my opinion. And don’t forget to download the free DML App from the Google Play or Apple App Store to remain connected to me throughout the day.
1.North Carolina county launches ‘doses to doors’ vaccine campaign
Health department workers and community outreach groups have kicked off a “doses to doors” COVID-19 vaccination campaign in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, where just 49% of residents have received at least one jab. The program, which officials say offer a convenient way for residents to get the shot without having to worry about travel, was met with mixed reaction on Twitter.
“They don’t move that fast to help people when they know a hurricane is coming,” one Twitter user wrote.
The program, which has a health professional on standby to administer a vaccine to eligible residents who want one, follows a community canvassing effort launched in May. Volunteers had been providing information about vaccines in previous weeks, focusing primarily on neighborhoods with low vaccine rates.
DML: The program “offers a convenient way for residents to get the shot without having to worry about travel.” If these folks are “worried about travel”, are these disabled people who wanted the shot but couldn’t get it? Do we really need to worry about them being spreaders to begin with? Let’s assume the program doesn’t focus on the disabled considering there was no mention of such a thing. In my opinion this is a way to get Biden closer to his number of 90%. Let’s get real: If some guy or gal can’t or won’t use a car, bus, cab, bike, or their own two feet to get a vaccine shot, is it safe to say they won’t want someone knocking on the door. These people are either hermits, or they don’t want the vaccine! My take is the idiots behind this program are using travel as an excuse. If they knocked on my door, I would use the most explicit words possible when telling them to get off my property and don’t come back.Based on the tweets below it appears I am not alone.
In North Carolina they started the doses to doors vaccine campaign, you better stay away from my property or you’ll get a dose alright!!!

They are so desperate to get everyone jabbed. Exactly what the cause of the 1918 pandemic. It was in the injection… People will never learn.

They are being told it is NOT FDA approved and experimental right? Other wise your not giving them the facts.

2.Microsoft Exchange email hack was caused by China, US says
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Biden administration on Monday blamed China for a hack of Microsoft Exchange email server software that compromised tens of thousands of computers around the world earlier this year.
The administration and allied nations also disclosed a broad range of other cyberthreats from Beijing, including ransomware attacks from government-affiliated hackers that have targeted companies with demands for millions of dollars. China’s Ministry of State Security has been using criminal contract hackers, who have engaged in cyber extortion schemes and theft for their own profit, according to a senior administration official. That official briefed reporters about the investigation on the condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile, the Justice Department on Monday announced charges against four Chinese nationals who prosecutors said were working with the Ministry of State Security in a hacking campaign that targeted dozens of computer systems, including companies, universities and government entities.
DML: The article goes on to say, “The White House also wanted to line up an international coalition of allies to call out China.” In other words Hunter Biden’s art collection is up for sale and ready for placement on the next outgoing container to China.
“The White House Friday defended a deal it brokered to allow Hunter Biden’s artwork, which could be listed as high as $500,000 each, to sell to anonymous buyers and with no disclosure to the public.” https://t.co/iEjpdY4bOr

3.Trump claims Americans are refusing to get the COVID vaccine because they do not TRUST the Biden administration or the 2020 election result
Former President Donald Trump has claimed that vaccination rates are falling because the public does not trust the Biden administration, the mainstream media and the results of the 2020 presidential election.
In a statement on his ‘Save America’ website, the former president wrote: ‘Joe Biden kept talking about how good of a job he’s doing on the distribution of the Vaccine that was developed by Operation Warp Speed or, quite simply, the Trump Administration.
‘He’s not doing well at all. He’s way behind schedule, and people are refusing to take the Vaccine because they don’t trust his Administration, they don’t trust the Election results, and they certainly don’t trust the Fake News, which is refusing to tell the Truth.’
DML: I voted for Trump twice, but my lack of desire for the vaccine has nothing to do with the election or Joe Biden. If Trump was president I wouldn’t be taking the vaccine. I think I speak for many people when I say that I see no reason to take the vax, nor do I wish putting my health at risk for something that was tested and pushed through in a rush.
4.The morning sell-off in stock futures is accelerating with Dow futures now down 450 points
U.S. stock index futures fell aggressively on Monday on concern a rebound in Covid-19 cases would slow global economic growth. The selling in futures increased as the morning progressed with Dow Jones Industrial average futures now down about 450 points.
Stocks that would most directly benefit from a continuing swift reopening of the economy led the losses in premarket trading with shares of Royal Caribbean and United Airlines falling more than 4%. The 10-year Treasury yield fell to a new 5-month low of 1.23%, amid concerns about a possible slowing in the economy.
Covid cases have rebounded in the U.S. this month with the delta variant spreading among the unvaccinated. The U.S. is averaging nearly 30,000 new cases a day in the last 7-days ending Friday, up from a 7-day average of around 11,000 cases a day a month ago, according to CDC data. Cases were already flaring up around the world because of the delta variant.
DML: I’ve been warning of a stock market crash, housing up next. The nosedive has arrived.

5.Two more Texas Democrats test positive for COVID after fleeing election vote
Two more Texas Democrats have tested positive for coronavirus during their trip to Washington, D.C., just one day after three of their colleagues learned they had contracted the virus as well.
According to the Texas Tribune, the number of COVID-positive Texas state lawmakers in the nation’s capital is now five. The news comes on the same day that Vice President Kamala Harris dropped by Walter Reed Medical Center for a “routine” visit after meeting with the group of lawmakers just last week.
The group of Democrats fled the Lone Star State to deny Republicans in the state legislature a quorum, which refers to the minimum number of lawmakers needed to carry out legislative business.
DML: I cannot wait for Texas to arrest these people. On a side note, having nothing to do with Texas Democrats, the Sheriff in LA County says he will not enforce the new mask mandates. He says he is underfunded and there is no science to back the need for a mask. Welcome to C O V I D Lockdowns 2.0, only this time people will be smarter. Or so I hope.
MY PARTING COMMENTS: It is starting to feel like Ground Hogs Day. The markets are dropping because Wall Street sees the new C O V I D cases are popping. The media’s rhetoric is pounding the social media feeds for the sake of clicks. On Main Street USA, real people like you have big concerns about overreaching shutdowns starting to rise. And so now, once again, I am getting the onslaught of questions: Everyone is asking me how I keep myself healthy. I repeat…. I boost my immune system with DML CBD. It’s been two plus years and not even a head cold. Keep in mind my answer remains the same as it’s been for two years: I take DML CBD POWER and DML CBD SOFTGELS. Religiously. Every day.
