A German state finance minister took his own life after expressing “despair” over how to handle the economic fallout from coronavirus, an official said. Thomas Schaefer, who was the finance minister of Germany’s Hesse region, was found dead by suicide Saturday on railway tracks at Hochheim, which is near Frankfurt. State governor Volker Bouffier said Sunday that the 54-year-old had become consumed with how to handle the coronavirus crisis sending the global markets into freefall.He said Schaefer was particularly concerned about

Hey media puppets, the President is right again. 10 years on the job and couldn't think of a way out of the crisis.

May God grant mercy to his troubled soul. I highly doubt the German economy was able to take this hit as well as the USA after three years of President Trump's leadership. Perhaps Mr. Schaefer had nightmares of post WWI Germany and was paralyzed by his fear. For those who have set aside God, they find no inner resources when events take a sudden turn. I also doubt he will be the only EU-nation bureaucrat to choose the permanent solution to a temporary problem. The big flaw in socialism/communism is insisting that human behavior follow their plans as shown on paper. There is only one plan, God's Plan, and those that chaff against it can never see the doom coming that they've created for themselves. Once again President Trump, a man of God, was correct; economic stress causes an increase in suicides.

This is just the beginning. You are going to hear more suicides. People are killing people because of social distancing. President Trump needs to get a handle on this because I see it getting out of control fast. He needs to bring our country back to normal. He can do it slowly, but it needs to be done. Give people encouragement that it is happening. The democrats want total destruction of the economy and they would do at the cost of everyone in the U.S. Mr. President, bring us back to life starting now.

Brussels expects Germany to carry the financial load created by Covid-19. I'm sure the bureaucrats dumped this responsibility squarely in this poor man's lap. Just another demonstration on how Socialism destroys everything and everyone it touches. RIP Herr Scharfer.

With the 30 day extension, I am about ready to jump off a bridge myself. The constitution has been torn up, everybody imprisoned, rather than testing and quarantining those that test positive. The government now ruling in totality, nothing allowed without checking the latest regulation, more regulations promised, and coming. Everybody sitting at home, watching the government decrees, rather than working. Now Easter is ruined. To hell with all of it.

One of the first in the anticipated wave of suicides, reminiscent of the crash of 1929, when Wall Streeters jumped out of NY skyscraper windows. This suicide is another nail in the coffin of the ill-conceived EU.

It's a sad thing. But I think our President warned that people would kill themselves if we didn't get our economy back working again, didn't he? And the Enemedia laughed. It isn't funny, not at all.

this poor man must have had other things in his life that were troubling him, along with (probably) severe depression. Having to deal with the financial impact of this virus may have been the straw that broke the camel's back. God bless his soul.

President Trump gave a pass to protesters who have gathered in cities across the nation to push for American businesses to be reopened amid the coronavirus pandemic. 'They've got cabin fever,' Trump said at his Sunday White House briefing. 'They want their lives back.' The president rejected the assertion that he was inciting violence, as one reporter pointed out that governors around the country were seeing an uptick in death threats. (Photos/Video) 'No, I am not.

During the rebel Sixties, one could easily identify the ranks of the hardcore left by their constant predictions of a coming fascism and the evident glee with which they welcomed the prospect. Whether this was the product of a serious attempt to read the political winds, or merely a radical wish was irrelevant. They defended it as a strategy of “the worse the better.” In the 1968 presidential election, it was better to elect a fascist like Nixon than a moderate like Hubert Humphrey – that is, if you were serious about revolution.Of all my memories of the Sixties the revelations provoked

As the president of the United States shelters in place with the White House press corps, and Joe Biden gibbers senselessly into the GoPro camera in his Delaware basement, this fall’s national election has been thrown into a cocked tricorn by the coronavirus. Many of Donald Trump’s retail-politicking strengths — the huge rallies, his command of crowds — have been neutralized, and while he still has control of the narrative from his bully pulpit in the West Wing, the national media remains dead set against him, and puts the worst possible spin on every word he speaks.

Neiman Marcus Group, one of the largest retailers in the United States, is reportedly ready to file bankruptcy amid the COVD-19 pandemic after defaulting millions in bond payments last week and furloughing 14,000 employees. Neiman Marcus would become the first major US department store to crumble amidst the economic set backs from the coronavirus outbreak. Reuters reported the company had few options after the coronavirus spurred lockdowns that shuttered non-essential businesses, including all 43 of their stores. This includes Last Call stores and its two New York City Bergdorf Goodman department stores.Neiman Marcus has struggled to stay afloat with brick-and-mortar stores as consumer shopping increasingly shifts online.

Illinois Democrats are demanding $41 billion from the federal government for coronavirus relief, including $10 billion for Illinois's cash-strapped and underfunded public pension plan. The most fiscally mismanaged state in the union that has criminally neglected funding its public pension fund for two decades wants Washington to pull its chestnuts out of the fire? Certainly, states should get something. But what Illinois is asking for is shocking. Chicago Sun-Times: “I realize I’ve asked for a lot, but this is an unprecedented situation, and we face the reality that there likely will be additional, unanticipated costs that could result in future requests for assistance,”
Kentucky’s GOP legislature overrides governor’s

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear tried to veto a proposed bill requiring voters to present photo ID at their polling location. Democrat opponents to the bill pointed to the absence of voter impersonation cases in Kentucky. They felt the requirement for voter ID would reduce turnout among the poor, minorities, the elderly and disabled. Sound familiar? Governor Beshear earlier stated he vetoed the bill since it created an obstacle to voting rights and was “undermining our democracy.” This has been a Democrat talking point in many blue states attempting to derail the requirement for voter ID. The Governor didn’t count on the supermajority of Republicans to react so strongly.

Yuan’s denial came days after a fresh round of reports suggesting the novel coronavirus escaped from the Wuhan Institute or another similar laboratory miles away in the Chinese city. President Trump was asked about the possibility at a White House press briefing last Wednesday and said the US was investigating the origins.

We’re going to come out of this nightmare whether the Democratic politicians like it or not. The pandemic is subsiding, so America is done with this lockdown nonsense, and the inevitable re-opening is coming. It will start out slow, then get faster, then get very, very fast, and then get finished. That’s how these things happen. But it won’t happen without #resistance. The lib establishment and its media gerbils clearly think it’s in their interest to have the Bat Gobbler flu crisis continue indefinitely. They think it hurts Trump, plus they really love wielding power over you. Just look into the dead doll eyes of Governor Karen (D-Minncounsinigan)
