Hello, Brad. I'm gonna go through my emails and we'll discuss the news, the various press releases that I received today.
The only thing the president had on his schedule officially today was that he received his intelligence briefing and he participated in a phone call with military families of COVID -19 response and then they did the press press briefing this afternoon.
The president also approved Montana as a disaster declaration so Montana's added to the list. Today was sexual assault awareness and prevention month for the month of April.
They say no person should ever have to endure the anguish. and indignity of sexual assault. This horrific crime affects Americans of every age, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. During National Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, we reaffirm our commitment to supporting survivors of sexual assault,
encouraging strong criminal justice responses to these crimes, crimes and ending the scourge of sexual violence in our homes and communities. Okay, so I thought that was neat. Then we also have National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Childhood should be filled with joy, hope, unconditional love and acceptance. Tragically, however, far too many of our nation's young people people spend this foundational time of their lives in fear, pain, and uncertainty. And during abuse and neglect that threatens their health and well -being, during National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we condemn this horrific depravity and reaffirm our unwavering commitment to protecting our children and strengthening our families.
Now, did you know that... that the month of May? I mean April was dedicated to that To abuse and sexual abuse Okay, they sent a notice from the White House of the different Private sectors coming together to step up and help the coronavirus. So you know that we have GM, right? right? So we have Ford. Ford is collaborating with 3M and GE Healthcare to increase the production of ventilators and personal protective equipment.
So it's Ford Motor Company is helping with that. Okay Toyota. Toyota is using their facilities to produce face shields and collaborating with medical device companies to speed up manufacturing of vital medical devices. General Motors is manufacturing respiratory masks and working with venti life systems to mass produce ventilators.
Fiat Chrysler, so all of the motor companies and and we it just makes you think about Michigan because this is where most of them are located now is in Michigan again so Fiat Chrysler is manufacturing and donating more than one million protective face mask a month.
Honeywell has doubled their production of N95 mask and intends to increase its capacity fivefold within the next 90 days. 3M doubled their global output of 95 and 95 respirator mask. My pillow has dedicated 75 % of their manufacturing to produce thousands of masks a day. Haynes has agreed to use this manufacturing facilities to help produce medical masks. Jockey International is producing isolation gowns and donating scrubs to medical workers at the Javits Center in New York. Ralph Lauren announced that they would work with their manufacturing partners to produce mask and isolation gowns.
Brooks Brothers is using its facilities to produce a hundred and fifty thousand masks per day. Bauer announced they will be repurposing their factories to begin making face shields. It's a whole list. I could go through that. Okay, let's see what else we got here. They had, I just got off the phone with my best friend in Washington.
She is the one that is the White House Correspondent for South Korea and I asked her if she was a part of this. They had a thing at the State Department for Asian reporters and you know that's asking about what's happening over there in Asia. Okay and there's that information. It was a round table that's what she said it was. was. We have also in April is National Financial Capability Month. What is that? Let's see what it is. Okay, Presidential Message on National Financial Capability Month 2020.
During National Financial Capability Month, we recognize the importance of national financial of financial literacy to a free and prosperous society. And we commit to ensuring that all Americans have the resources they need to make informed financial choices and provide opportunities for a brighter,
more secure future. Did you know that, Bry? I didn't even know they had such a thing. Okay, let's move forward. We have a press statement from the State Department saying they have a concern for growing violence in Rikin and Chin States in Burma.
Okay, let's continue. I could read those press releases, but Okay, the President wrote a letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President of the Senate. So let's see what he said. Dear Madam Speaker and Dear Mr. President, Section 202 (d) of the National Emergency Emergencies Act 50 USC 1622 (d) provides for the automatic termination of a national emergency in less than 90 days.
Okay, so it's declaring the national emergency. Let's see what it's for. The situation in and in relation to South Sudan, which has been marked by activities that threaten the peace, security, and stability of the U .S. South Sudan and the surrounding region, including widespread violence and atrocities. Human rights abuses, recruitment, and use of child soldiers attacks on peacekeepers, and obstruction of humanitarian operations continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States. Therefore, I am determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency declared in executive order 13664 with respect to South Sudan.
So that will remain the same. Alright, let's see the next one. Okay, that's the same thing. Okay,
these are the remarks from the president and the coronavirus. Today the Treasury Department and Small Business Administration announced further details on Paycheck Protection Program, which was made possible by the $2 trillion relief bill I signed into law last week. Nearly $350 billion in loans will soon be available through lending partners to help small businesses meet payroll and other expenses for up to two months. These loans will be forgiven as long as businesses keep paying their workers.
Wow! This includes sole proprietors and independent contractors, but I wondering I'm wondering because of all that we're hearing if there's going to be a stipulation that the government owns part of their business, because let's see. This includes sole proprietors and independent contractors. Applications will be accepted starting this Friday, April 3rd, so on Friday, April 3rd, that's when it begins. Earlier today, I spoke with leading internet and phone providers. Here we go, Brad. Brad. All right, let's see. Who are doing a tremendous job of keeping our internet and lines of communication flowing under very strongly increased strain? The business is more than anybody has seen before because everyone is inside, they're all making calls. Among the leaders, okay, he's told all the names. If you look at other continents, if you look at Europe, they went a different route than we did and much different route. We were talking about that just a little while ago and they're having tremendous problems. Other countries are having problems. Okay, so let's see. He went through all the states describing what everybody's doing in Louisiana,
New York. York. Over the past two months, the U .S. State Department has organized one of the largest and most complex international evacuation operations in American history. Mike Pompeo has been working around the clock along with Ambassador O 'Brien since Since January 29th, we have successfully repatriated over 25 ,000 Americans from more than 50 countries where they were literally stuck in some cases locked in.
I found out today that a lot of our missionaries overseas decided to stay. Isn't that something knowing that they may never get to come back? I want every American to be prepared for the hard days to lie ahead.
We're going to go through a very tough two weeks and then hopefully as the experts are predicting, as I think a lot of us are predicting, after having studied it so hard, you're going to start seeing some real light at the end of the tunnel. But this is going to be very painful, a very painful two weeks. Alright. right let me see which one this was from I think this was yesterday's yeah it was okay all right let's see President Trump approves North Dakota where I was at this winter North Dakota disaster okay Okay, all right, I'm looking, hold on. Secretary Pompeo's been making a lot of phone calls. all right, let's see Did y 'all hear this today brad that Russia is going to be giving us supplies look?
This is the press release about it US purchase wow, I didn't know we bought it from them. Did you? U .S. Purchase of needed supplies from Russia.
The United States is committed to the global fight against COVID -19. We are a generous and reliable contributor to crisis response and humanitarian action across the world,
but we cannot do it alone. The countries of the G20 agreed last week to work together. to defeat the coronavirus and we are working closely with these countries and others to ensure the quickly needed supplies get to those in need.
As a follow -up to the March 30 phone call between President Trump and President Putin, the United States has agreed to purchase needed medical supplies including ventilators and personal protected equipment from Russia which were handed over to FEMA on April 1st. Now does this make you think right about what we learned from that man today? Remember what that scientist told us? America is going to be the first country with the full rollout of 5G.
So according to this scientist they're getting everything in place because when they cut it on it's going to kill a lot of people. Now I'm just just saying what this scientist said but it makes sense with a stockpile and everything and Getting all the military in place and in the female in place and all this that we would have an increase I guess when they flip the switch and turn everything on so we need to pray.
All right, so both countries have provided human assistance to each other in times of crisis in the past and will no doubt do so again in the future.
This is a time to work together to overcome a common enemy that threatens the lives of us all. Today,
President Trump spoke with President Jair Bassano -Roe, I don't know if I'm saying the right, of Brazil. President Trump and President Bassano -Roe discussed efforts to combat COVID -19 pandemic.
The two leaders noted the importance of a coordinated international response and continued partnership in Brazil. including a commitment to working closely together through the G20.
The leaders reiterated the significance of slowing the spread of the virus and protecting lives through shared information, member bride the data, increasing preparedness, which which means military, technology, et cetera, and cooperating on therapies and vaccine development.
The two leaders also affirmed their continued commitment to aggressively safeguarding jobs and incomes using all available tools to restore global economic growth.
The president, thank you. Brazil for its ongoing assistance to help repatriate American citizens seeking to return home and praise the close relationship between the two countries.
All right, we approved the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands. Did y 'all know they were a part of the United States? Northern Mariana Islands disaster declaration. I didn't know that. Did you? Did y 'all know that in April is World... No, today was World Autism Awareness Day. World Autism Awareness Day is a tribute to the millions of Americans living with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Their numerous triumphs over many and varied obstacles are a testament to the strength and resolve of the American spirit.
We also extend our gratitude to all those who through their unwavering dedication to supporting Americans with ASD help empower them to thrive at home in the workplace and in their communities.
communities. That's awesome. I know people that have children that have autism. Okay, so let's see here. President Trump enhanced counter narcotics operations.
What is this? President Trump today, the United States is launching enhanced counter narcotics operations. in the Western Hemisphere to protect the American people from the deadly scourge of illegal narcotics.
In cooperation with the 22 partner nations US Southern Command will increase surveillance, disruption, and seizures of drug shipments and provide additional support for eradication efforts which are going on right now at record pace.
So this does kind of make you think that some of the things that Q is saying may be true about these mass arrests. Okay so Secretary Esper, this is particularly important time for the operation to begin as nations around the world shift their focus inward to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. Many criminal organizations are attempting attempting to criminalize on this crisis.
The enhanced operations we are announcing today will keep the pressure on these criminal groups and protect the American people from the devastation caused by the flow of illegal drugs into our country.
Okay. Protecting military members. This is President Trump. Trump talking. Okay, as commander in chief,
I'm deeply grateful for our service members, their spouses and their children whose love, devotion and sacrifice keeps America strong. Secretary Esper, I'm confident between the commanding officers and the senior non -commissioned officers that they're taking every reasonable reasonable precaution to make sure we practice as best we can, social distancing, sanitizing environments, et cetera, consistent with that mission. Chief of Naval Operations, Adam Admiral Gilday.
In terms of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, we're making great progress in terms of testing and also moving people also. off the ship. So in the past day or so, we've moved over a thousand. That number will increase to more than 2700 by Friday. Okay, so, alright, well that is it, Brad. that I can see, hold on. Well, they're saying that this Grammy -winning singer Who is a young man seen right there died from the coronavirus?
Country star Joe Diffie died from coronavirus complications at age 61 actor Mark Blum Dead at 69 due to coronavirus Bill riflin drummer for ministry R. E. M. 9 inch nails died at 59. I'm just kind of skimming through Fox News New York City streets empty amid coronavirus pandemic pandemic.
Remember, I told you, Brian. Brian, that this was their slogan for this One World Unity look. There it is, America Together.
Send us your photos and your stories of the coronavirus. All right, Brad. Well, I guess that's all that's all I have for you. Let me check one more place Oh, I wanted to tell you something I noticed today in the press conference is that the media keeps asking these questions to Trump like why are you not doing a national shutdown? I believe they are preparing the nation to make the nation to make it look like the nation is crying out for a national martial law.
Are y 'all catching on to this too or am I just exaggerating? What did y 'all catch on to that in the press conference today? Because it says right here on AP the Associated Press it says Trump resist a national shutdown leaving it up to states.
I'm gonna see how they word this because that's what I'm suspecting. President Donald Trump is resisting calls to issue a national stay -at -home order to stem the spread of the new coronavirus despite his administration's projections that tens of thousands of Americans are likely to be killed by the disease.
Excuse me, one by one those states are increasing. pushing shut down orders of their own So Trump said Wednesday That he wants to give governors flexibility on whether a stay -at -home policy is the best option for their constituents But acknowledged that he's looking at limiting air and rail travel between hotspots within the United States the president remains hesitant to press a unified policy even after the White House released sobering new projections on Tuesday that 100,000 to 240,000 Americans will likely succumb to coronavirus even if current social distancing guidelines are maintained.
So that's just something I'm, I'm thinking that they're Trying to make it look like that Americans are getting nervous and wanting them to do a national shutdown So that when it happens everybody be okay with it.
You see what I mean? So let me see some of your comments here here wow Tina that is something married America you're coming in here let me turn this down look at this Tina says America to get her together that's a good one hey sister blessings I'm not staying going to bed going to pray crying calling God My spirit feels heavy tonight.
I'll be praying for y 'all penny We're about to go in our prayer room and do our prayer if you can hold on I Find it Rachel. I find it interesting that the only people who seem to have it are the influencers.
Come on Are you catching on to this too? I'm not minimizing the desk, but I wish people would think I Penny we're praying for you.
I tried telling my thick family that Yes, I did not watch it today. Okay. So here's my thought he prays, right? He listens to the evangelicals hence the demonic Hence demonize the real bride Okay Robin in New England the population is very scarce.
They'll no need to shut down, yeah. Yes, pacify the masses, that's what Q is doing too, yes. Think sheeple,yes, yes, yes, I get you. Okay, hey, before I get off here, does anybody have any reports about their states? Any news about your state?
I know that in Georgia, they did. a stay -at -home order today because we are one of the few states here that has not done a lockdown.
So we have been pretty much free to roam except for Atlanta. The mayor of Atlanta got pretty strict, but the governor has been under so much pressure from people to lockdown,
kind of like what the president is. So he did one today.
