Papa Powell Sees “Tremendous Human and Economic Hardship” (No V-Shaped Recovery)

This post was shared from the sgtreport.com's RSS feed

by David Haggith, The Great Recession Blog:

Jerome Powell burst the stock market bubble by publicly acknowledging there will not likely be a “V”-shaped economic recovery. He indicated that it will take years for the economy to return to the recent levels … we experienced just a mere four months ago.

That was actually the point of my recent article that unfortunately became, in the comments, all about my disclosure and not about the article’s theme. So, I’d like to go back to that theme, now that even Fed Chair Jerome Powell supports it at the market’s expense.

The Fed now having set the expectations that rates will remain at least at zero … has inadvertently revealed a major gap in narrative: That of a V shaped recovery presumed by markets and a Fed signaling with zero rates through 2022 that there is no V shaped recovery in the offing, rather a protracted high unemployment environment that is entirely inconsistent with market valuations north of 150% market cap to GDP.

Scientists Discover That The One Big Assumption That Everyone Has Been Making About COVID-19 May Be Dead Wrong

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream: Over the past several months, there has been a tremendous amount of debate about almost every aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic.  People have been eager to debate about the severity of the virus, they have been eager to debate about the wisdom of the lockdowns, and they have been eager to debate about the effectiveness of wearing masks.  But the one thing that everyone could pretty much agree on is that eventually this pandemic would end.  Virtually all of us assumed that one way or another eventually most of the population would develop COVID-19 antibodies and that once we got to that point the pandemic would fizzle out.  Unfortunately, it appears that was not a safe assumption to make. Yes, those that have had COVID-19 do develop antibodies. But two new scientific studies have discovered that those antibodies start to fade very, very quickly. For example, a study that was recently conducted in China found that more than 90 percent of COVID-19 patients experience steep declines in COVID-19 antibodies “within 2 to 3 months”… A new study from China showed that antibodies faded quickly in both asymptomatic and symptomatic COVID-19 patients during convalescence,

Burger King Promotes Green New Deal in Ad Slamming Cow Farts

A new ad for fast-food chain Burger King claims bovine flatulence is making the earth hotter, a notion previously addressed in the radical left’s Green New Deal proposals. “Cow farts & burps are no laughing matter,” states the ad promoted on social media. “They release methane, contributing to climate change. That’s why we’re working to change our cows’ diet by adding lemongrass to reduce their emissions by approximately 33%.” cow farts & burps are no laughing matter. they release methane, contributing to climate change. that’s why we’re working to change our cows’ diet by adding lemongrass to reduce their emissions by approximately 33%. learn about our ongoing study: https://t.co/kPCXpjfbGL #CowsMenu pic.twitter.com/DnmF8gVVL0 — Burger King (@BurgerKing) July 14, 2020 The burger giant plans to launch their new burgers in select liberal cities. “Whopper sandwiches with reduced methane emissions beef to be sold, while supplies last, at select US restaurants in Austin, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City and Portland.” The company’s goal of reducing cow fart emissions is in line with the far left’s stated plan to reduce “emissions from cows,” as stated in a “Green New Deal FAQ” 10-year plan that appeared on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY)

Gary Shilling: The Social Security’s Funding Crisis Has Arrived

Authored by A. Gary Shilling, originally published in Bloomberg Opinion The Social Security Trust Fund has done quite well in recent years, due to the postwar babies’ surge into the labor force in the last decades of the 20th century while retirees from the low-birth rate Great Depression years were drawing relatively few benefits. The combination of these two forces pushed the Social Security Trust Fund balance from about zero in 1980 to $2.9 trillion today. But now, the coronavirus pandemic threatens to undo all those gains, and without swift action by the government a new crisis may be at hand. The fund’s Trustees noted in an April report that net inflows into the Trust Fund will turn negative next year, commencing a demise that will see the Trust Fund go broke in 2035. Then, payroll taxes will cover only 79% of promised retiree benefits. Here’s the troubling part: “The projections and analyses in this year’s report do not reflect the potential effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Social Security program,” the Trustees stated in the annual report. Clearly, benefits will increase as more workers retire early or claim disability while payroll taxes swoon with the drop in employment. Social Security

Nick Cannon Says White People ‘True Savages’, ‘Closer To Animals’

Actor Nick Cannon launched into a dehumanizing racist tirade about white people on a recent episode of his podcast, charging that they’re “closer to animals” and “a little less.” In the “Cannon’s Class” podcast from June 30th, Cannon told rapper and former Public Enemy member Richard “Professor Griff” Griffin that white people were genetically inferior to black people because they lacked melanin in their skin. “Let’s get down to what it really is then – we talk about the power of melanated [sic] people, when we talk about who we really are as gods and…melanin is so power [sic], and it connects us in a way that the reason why they fear black, the reason why fear us is because the lack that they have of it,” Cannon said. Nick Cannon says white people are “a little less,” “closer to animals,” “the true savages,” “acting out of a deficiency so the only way they can act is evil.” When does he get canceled? pic.twitter.com/vK3TBDW9i8 — Adam Ford (@Adam4d) July 14, 2020 Maintain peak vigilance by taking advantage of our latest sale now! “However they got the power, the lack of compassion – melanin comes with compassion, melanin
