Today is February 29, I am DML, and the stories below are making headlines this Saturday morning.
1- Economic woe meets the Corona Virus while Trump battles foes
The AP reports: The coronavirus outbreak’s impact on the world economy grew more alarming on Saturday, even as President Donald Trump denounced criticisms of his response to the threat as a “hoax” cooked up by his political enemies.
New data released by manufacturing powerhouse China, where the virus was first detected in December, showed a sharp drop in the purchasing managers’ index to 35.7 in February, down from 50 in January. Any reading above 50 indicates expansion, while a reading below shows contraction. National Bureau of Statistics senior statistician Zhao Qinghe said the novel coronavirus outbreak was a direct cause of the sharp decline.
DML: Trump, in my opinion, is making a mistake by using the word “hoax”, and would be best served to remind people that his economy is built on strong fundamentals, able to withstand the virus outbreak. I spoke about this at length during my most recent LIVE video, which is available on TeamDML.com
2-Biden bets on South Carolina
The Democrats’ 2020 race turned to South Carolina on Saturday for the first-in-the-South primary. Former Joe Biden stands confident that black voters will give him a victory, and table some of front-runner Bernie Sanders’ momentum.
According to reports, the primary stands as the first marker on a critical four-day stretch that will help determine whether the party rallies behind Sanders or embraces a longer and uglier slog that could carry on until the national convention.
DML: Bernie Sanders has nothing to fear with Biden, as the self proclaimed Democratic socialist will hold his first place slot. He will be impossible for Biden and others to catch.
3- Court hits Trump with a blow
A 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel voted unanimously Friday to suspend an order it issued earlier in the day to block a central pillar of the Trump administration’s policy requiring asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their cases wind through U.S. courts.
The three-judge panel told the government to file written arguments by the end of Monday and for the plaintiffs to respond by the end of Tuesday.
The Justice Department said at least 25,000 asylum seekers subject to the policy are currently waiting in Mexico and expressed “massive and irreparable national-security of public-safety concerns.”
Government attorneys said immigration lawyers had begun demanding that asylum seekers be allowed in the United States, with one insisting that 1,000 people be allowed to enter at one location.
DML: Trump must put tariffs on Mexico, and he must put in mandatory e-Verify via executive order or these people and millions more like them are coming into the US this year.
4-US ramps up efforts to battle virus
Federal health officials scrambled Friday to get coronavirus testing up and running in every state, as the Trump administration signaled it may also invoke a 70-year-old defense law to guarantee the availability of protective gear should the virus spread.
DML: Meanwhile, the CDC said two more Americans tested positive for the virus out of the group of quarantined passengers from the Diamond Princess cruise ship.
5- Recent report by Gallup shows CBD usage on the rise
According to a recent Gallup poll, 1 in 7 Americans are using CBD. Why? The survey shows CBD users in the U.S. cite relief from pain (40%), anxiety (20%), insomnia (11%) and arthritis (8%) as the top reasons for use. With that in mind, here is the latest testimonial from a DML reader. Her name is Shannon:
My sister suffers with arthritis in her hands. She called me one morning crying because she said the pain was very bad and although the doctor had prescribed a topical ointment it was not working. I ordered two MIRACLE ME oils — I kept one and I gave her one. She is loving the way she feels. My mom suffered with the same thing for as long as I can remember. I wish this had been available for her. I just wanted to thank you and let you know.
