Crisis Socialism: No Bailouts
for Open Borders Globalists!

Original Article

No. No. No. No. No. The answer from the American people across the political spectrum to the airline industry's plea for a $50 billion taxpayer-subsidized bailout in the Age of WuFlu must be "Hell, no!" times 50 billion. Why should working-class American citizens being laid off from restaurants, bars, grocery stores, ports, gyms, entry-level service jobs and gig economy contracts rescue one of the beltway swamp's most powerful corporate lobbies

Comments:

What a disgusting sight - - "conservative" Pubbies jumping on the socialist bandwagon - - and President Trump doing the driving! Are we all socialists now?

It will get pretty ugly in commercial aviation. My older son is a Captain for Frontier, and a significant cut back in flights happens starting in April. I think Frontier will pull through it because of a healthy balance sheet. Not so sure about the other carriers. I just hope he doesn't get furloughed. Time will tell. Thanks China.

Bailouts haven't worked in the past. Don't think it will this time either.

What the author is overlooking is that there are a lot of people like cabbies and restaurant workers that will lose their jobs if the airlines go down.

Don't bail out airlines and don't bail out cruise lines. At least not until you have first bailed out the rest of working America. The truckers need it worse. I hope Donald Trump isn't going to be one of those Take From the Have Nots and Give it to the Haves!!

The thing is, airlines provide a service, and do so at a very affordable price. Yes, they pack us in like sardines and charge for absolutely everything nowadays, but personally, I like being able to travel, especially to visit family. Where are we if the airlines go bust? Yes, new companies will form, but when? And will they be any better than the ones we have today? Will their safety records be as good? Don't remove a fence until you know why it's there.

Thank you #8. I am so tired of the Never Trumpers and the naysayers. We have the President of the USA trying to Make America Great Again. I don't know if these people have cushy jobs etc. I do know this that after eight years of Barack Obama and Joe Biden, we had small businesses closing. Some temporary or others completely gone. One of those businesses was the business my husband worked for and was doing really well until Barack Obama opened his mouth. President Trump is very concerned for this country and the people. I so appreciate it.

No government money should go to any person or entity who “screws” American workers. That should be the watchword in these hard times.

FTA: "Wasn't it just a few weeks ago that all these "limited government" Republicans in the House, Senate, Trump cabinet and conservative media were up on stage at the "Conservative" Political Action Conference performing conga-line warnings about the scourge of Bernie Sanders-style interventions in the capitalist marketplace?" Yeah, and others think the fix to markets is more government intervention/control. It's easy to talk tough when it's not one of your oxen being gored...airlines and passenger transportation, oil, ethanol, dairy, other farm products...add your own to the list.

As I understand it, they would be loans for the big companies, to be paid back with interest. It was done with automakers, who repaid the loans. The money to individuals are a gift. Keep the money away from ''alternative energy'' scams, the climate change hoax, and other non-critical parasites. Also, do not allow companies to use the money to buy back their own stock!

Before merging with United, a guy named Gordon Bethune was the Continental CEO. He was a down-to-earth guy, having gone through the ranks from mechanic to pilot among other positions. If you were to ask any Continental employee back then, they all referred to him by his first name "... Gordon was on this flight last week ...", etc. As CEO, Gordon would often characterize the airlines as "...a dysfunctional industry, where you're only as good as your dumbest competitor..."

I do not support crisis socialism or $1T in checks being sent out. In the end, Democrats and Republicans are the same. I did not vote for edicts from DC or the Governor's mansions.

All 27 European Union nations agreed to shut down entry into EU borders in an effort to fight the spread of the coronavirus pandemic that has claimed tens of thousands of lives across the continent. German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced the plan, set to last 30 days, on Tuesday during a teleconference meeting with other EU leaders. She said there would be "very, very limited exceptions." “The union and its member states will do whatever it takes,” said European Council President Charles Michel, who also noted the EU will arrange for the repatriation of citizens who live within the union.

Well, maybe this was a predictable result of what appears to be quite a night for former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum. He was found in a hotel room last week totally drunk and incapable of speaking with police. Oh, and did we mention that there were bags of meth and reported gay escorts in the room as well? Yes. The other man involved was reportedly suffering a drug overdose.

Oil prices plunged more than 30% after OPEC’s failure to strike a deal with its allies regarding production cuts caused Saudi Arabia to slash its prices as it reportedly gets set to ramp up production, leading to fears of an all-out price war. U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude briefly dropped 32.29% to $27.95 per barrel. International benchmark Brent crude futures also plummeted 29.03% to $32.13 per barrel.

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg came away the big winner Tuesday night — in the American Samoa caucuses. Bloomberg was awarded five of the six delegates from American Samoa, with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, claiming just one. It amounted to his first victory from the Super Tuesday contests, after dropping $500 million on ads. Former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders were faring much better in the early voting, raising questions about the future of Bloomberg's campaign.

The Federal Reserve slashed interest rates by half a percentage point on Tuesday, a bold attempt to give the US economy a jolt in the face of concerns about the coronavirus outbreak. It was the first unscheduled, emergency rate cut since 2008, and it also marks the biggest one-time cut since then. The new benchmark interest rate is 1% to 1.25%. Although the fundamentals of the US economy remain strong, "the coronavirus poses evolving risks to economic activity," the central bank said in a statement. Just last week, several Fed officials said it was too early to cut rates in the face of the global virus outbreak.

Though predictable, one of the most frustrating things about how Democrats have behaved since 2016 is their penchant for undermining election results simply because they don’t like the outcome. They of course cranked up the “illegitimate” rhetoric within moments of Donald Trump’s November 2016 victory over Hillary Clinton. They’ve kept it up ever since by way of perpetuating the myth of Trump/Russia collusion even after it was determined that there wasn’t any.

FBI Director Christopher Wray said Wednesday that the FBI agents involved in the surveillance of Carter Page who are still at the bureau have been referred to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility for possible disciplinary action. During a House Judiciary Committee hearing, Wray noted that most of the FBI officials who oversaw Crossfire Hurricane, which involved surveillance of Page, have left the bureau and are no longer subject to disciplinary review. He said the FBI personnel who worked on that probe and who still have jobs at the FBI are mostly line-level agents.

Dr Anthony Fauci has been caught smirking at President Donald Trump during a coronavirus press conference, further fueling rumors of tension between the pair. The incident occurred Friday afternoon, while the Commander-in-chief was giving the media an update on the COVID-19 outbreak flanked by members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force team, which includes Dr Fauci. The highly-respected immunologist looked to roll his eyes and suppress laughter as Trump lashed out at the State Department, describing them as the 'Deep State department'. Dr Fauci then placed his hand over his face, in what many described as a 'face palm' reaction to Trump's inflammatory remarks.

Anthony Fauci, M.D., the 79-year old head of the National Institute of Allegy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), has become the #1 point man on the government’s role in the coronavirus crisis. Fauci has worked for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) his entire professional life. In the past, for more than two decades starting in the mid-1980s, he was the medical establishment’s face of HIV-AIDS – omnipresent on television when AIDS was hot and ever present at international AIDS conferences well into the 21st century. Always, he was an enthusiastic advocate of throwing more federal money at the problem of AIDS. He's widely praised in the press.

Homeowners who have lost income or their jobs because of the coronavirus outbreak are getting some relief. Depending on their situation, they should be eligible to have their mortgage payments reduced or suspended for up to 12 months. Federal regulators, through the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are ordering lenders to offer homeowners flexibility. The move covers about half of all home loans in the U.S. — those guaranteed by Fannie and Freddie. But regulators expect that the entire mortgage industry will quickly adopt a similar policy. Under the plan, people who have suffered a loss of income can qualify

CNN commentator Chris Cuomo admonished President Trump for repeatedly calling the coronavirus "the Chinese virus." “Calling it the Chinese virus or the Wuhan virus or the Kung Flu. Listen, you may think it's clever, but it's hurting,” Cuomo said on his nightly show on Wednesday. “The idea, ‘Well, it did come from China.’ Then why doesn't Fauci and other top health officials, why don’t they call it that? You know why? Because it could have come from anywhere.” The virus, which has sparked a global pandemic, is believed to have originated in an animal market in Wuhan, China. Trump has said he uses the phrase "Chinese virus" for accuracy purposes.
