“Fortunately, because she is not experiencing any of the horrific symptoms associated with the coronavirus, she will continue working remotely from home,” reads the statement. “Brenda advises everyone to take the coronavirus seriously, to frequently wash their hands, to participate in social distancing, to be safe and take care of themselves and their families.”
PURE EVIL: Jihad-Rep Ilhan Omar Praises Corona Mass Death of Americans
Look at what Jihad-Rep Ilhan Omar said when news broke of President Trump’s warnings of the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans from Coronavirus.
Trump says next two weeks in the U.S. will be “very painful” and that he wants “every American to be prepared for the days that lie ahead.”
Ilhan Omar: Subhanallah! = “May Allah be praised!”
Ilhan Omar is an evil bitch. https://t.co/Gy7CuqWSt2

For those of you unaware, that phrase is said when you’re happy. She is praising Allah. She is praising Allah that Americans will be going through a very painful time.
If she were commiserating, she’d say Allah yahmeena (Allah protect us) or Autho billah (I seek refuge with Allah)

Because she and her cronies are contributing so much to the fight… https://t.co/qlIdP16Wtv

If anyone has been paying attention to @IlhanMN on Twitter recently you’ll notice she’s been busy quoting the quran & even sending out tweets that are very questionable in tone about the toll #COVID19 is taking on Americans. Many who speak Arabic say they’re celebratory. Obscene!

The Malaria Summit London 2018
We’ve done it! 53 Commonwealth nations have heard
our call and taken the bold, political action we’ve
been striving for: a commitment to halve malaria in
the Commonwealth by 2023.
This is a momentous leap in the fight against
humankind’s oldest and deadliest disease that kills a
child every two minutes. Halving malaria in the
Commonwealth over the next five years will save
650,000 lives and prevent 350 million cases.
Thanks to financial, political and scientific
commitments totalling €2.9 billion (S4.1 billion) made
at the Malaria Summit London 2018. we are well on
the way to making sure this killer disease is stopped
in its tracks for good.
We are #ReadyToBeatMalaria
The unprecedented number of CEOs resigning was because they knew a plot to tank the economy was in place.
The same way insider trading took place before 9/11
But to most people it seemed like the good times were still rolling at the end of 2019. Corporate profits were rising and the stock market was setting record high after record high.
Yes, there were lots of signs that the global economy was really slowing down, but most experts were not forecasting an imminent recession.
So why did so many chief executives suddenly decide that it was time to move on?
The following are just a few of the big name CEOs that chose to step down in 2019…
- Dennis Muilenburg — Boeing
- United Airlines — Oscar Munoz
- Alphabet — Larry Page
- Gap — Art Peck
- McDonald’s — Steve Easterbrook
- Wells Fargo — Tim Sloan
- Under Armour — Kevin Plank
- PG&E — Geisha Williams
- Kraft Heinz — Bernardo Hees
- HP — Dion Weisler
- Bed, Bath & Beyond — Steven Temares
- Warner Bros. — Kevin Tsujihara
- Best Buy — Hubert Joly
- New York Post — Jesse Angelo
- Colgate-Palmolive — Ian Cook
- MetLife — Steven Kandarian
- eBay — Devin Wenig
- Nike — Mark Parker
Of course the mass exodus of chief executives did not end there.
In fact, a whopping 219 CEOs stepped down during the month of January 2020 alone.
By then, it was starting to become clear that the coronavirus that was ripping through China could potentially become a major global pandemic, and I certainly can understand why many among the corporate elite would choose to abandon ship at that moment.

Some of these CEOs have made absolutely absurd salaries for many years, and it is much easier to take the money and run than it is to stick around and steer a major corporation through the most difficult global crisis that any of us have ever experienced.
The following are just a few of the well known CEOs that have resigned so far in 2020…
- Bob Iger, CEO of Disney
- Ginni Rometty, CEO of IBM
- Harley-Davidson CEO Matt Levatich
- T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere
- LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner
- Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga
- Keith Block, co-CEO of Salesforce
- Tidjane Thiam, CEO of Credit Suisse
- Hulu CEO Randy Freer
It is important for me to say that I do not have any special insight into the personal motivations of any of these individuals, and every situation is different.
But I do think that it is quite strange that we have seen such an unprecedented corporate exodus at such a critical moment in our history.
Meanwhile, top corporate executives were dumping billions of dollars worth of shares in their own companies just before the market completely cratered. The following comes from the Wall Street Journal…
Top executives at U.S.-traded companies sold a total of roughly $9.2 billion in shares of their own companies between the start of February and the end of last week, a Wall Street Journal analysis shows.
The selling saved the executives—including many in the financial industry—potential losses totaling $1.9 billion, according to the analysis, as the S&P 500 stock index plunged about 30% from its peak on Feb. 19 through the close of trading March 20.
In the stock market, you only make money if you get out in time, and many among the corporate elite seem to have impeccable timing.
Perhaps they just got really lucky. Or perhaps they were reading my articles and understood that COVID-19 was going to cause the global economy to shut down. In any event, things worked out really well for those that were able to dump their stocks before it was too late.
And it turns out that several members of Congress were also selling stocks just before the market went nuts…
Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California and three of her Senate colleagues reported selling 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.
Of course most ordinary Americans were not so “lucky”, and the financial losses for the country as a whole have been absolutely staggering.
The good news is that there was a tremendous rally on Wall Street on Tuesday, and that will provide some temporary relief for investors.
But the number of confirmed coronavirus cases continues to escalate at an exponential rate all over the globe, and this crisis appears to be a long way from over.

Authorities find smuggling tunnel under US-Mexico border, seize $29M worth of drugs
Federal agents in San Diego uncovered an underground smuggling tunnel last week and seized more than $29 million worth of drugs, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) said Tuesday.
The tunnel extended more than 2,000 feet between a warehouse in the Otay Mesa area of San Diego and a warehouse in Tijuana, Mexico, according to the DEA.
Agents seized about 1,300 pounds of cocaine, 86 pounds of methamphetamine, 17 pounds of heroin, 3,000 pounds of marijuana and more than two pounds of fentanyl from the tunnel, according to the DEA. Authorities estimated the total street value of the seized drugs is $29.6 million.
The discovery of the tunnel resulted from a combined investigation from members of the San Diego Tunnel Task Force, as well as Homeland Security, U.S. Border Patrol, the DEA and the United States Attorney’s Office.
Agents estimate the tunnel has been in existence for several months based on advanced construction in several portions, including reinforced walls, ventilation, lighting and an underground rail system.
The tunnel has an average depth of 31 feet and width of 3 feet throughout most of the passageway.
“I hope this sends a clear message that despite the ongoing public health crisis, [Homeland Security Investigations] and our law enforcement partners will remain resilient and continue to pursue criminal organizations responsible for the cross-border smuggling of narcotics into the United States,” HSI San Diego acting special agent in charge Cardell T. Morant said in a statement.
DEA special agent in charge John W. Callery similarly praised the discovery and the dedication of agents despite the coronavirus pandemic, and noted the San Diego Tunnel Task Force several months ago uncovered the “longest cross-border tunnel” yet found.
Agents announced in January they discovered a 4,309-foot tunnel between Tijuana and San Diego.
“These tunnels show the determination of drug trafficking organizations to subvert our border controls and smuggle deadly drugs into our community. But these recent tunnel seizures also show the dedication of our amazing partners on the San Diego Tunnel Task Force to locate and shut down these tunnels to keep our communities safe,” Callery said in a statement. “Despite the current COVID-19 pandemic, DEA employees continue to work tirelessly to serve and protect the community.”

Aircraft carrier captain removed from duty after pleading for help with coronavirus outbreak
The captain of an aircraft carrier struggling with a coronavirus outbreak has been relieved from command after a letter he penned pleading for help leaked to the media.
“Today at my direction the commanding officer of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, Capt. Brett Crozier was relieved of command,” acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly announced Thursday at a Pentagon briefing.
“I have no doubt in my mind that Capt. Crozier did what he thought was in the best interest of the safety and well being of his crew. Unfortunately it did the opposite,” Modly added, saying it panicked families of sailors on board and gave information about the ship’s capabilities to America’s adversaries. “In my judgment, relieving him of command was in the best interest of the United States Navy and the nation in this time when the nation needs the Navy to be strong and confident in the face of adversity.”
