Deep State Ringer and Might-As-Well-Be-A-Democrat Senator Richard Burr Dumped $1.6 Million in Stock In Companies Right After Assuring Public That Coronavirus Could be Contained

Pump and dump.

This guy is a bad actor and has been the Deep State's agent-in-place in the Senate for a while. He's also a corporate stooge, obviously.

I want him out of office and it's not even important to me that we get another Republican in. He has to be driven out of office, period. At least if a Democrat takes the seat we can actually oppose that person, rather than having to cover up for a traitor like Burr.

Soon after he offered public assurances that the government was ready to battle the coronavirus, the powerful chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Richard Burr, sold off a significant percentage of his stocks, unloading between $582,029 and $1.56 million of his holdings on Feb. 13 in 29 separate transactions.

As the head of the intelligence committee, Burr, a North Carolina Republican, has access to the government’s most highly classified information about threats to America’s security. His committee was receiving daily coronavirus briefings around this time, according to a Reuters story.

A week after Burr’s sales, the stock market began a sharp decline and has lost about 30% since.

79 Willowed comment from last thread:

You know very well that Trump didn't call the virus a hoax. I think maybe you're not a particularly honest person. Like, maybe you're a fucking liar.

Trump said the words, but Slough and others like him don't want you to read the transcript.

Here's the "hoax" language, "They tried anything, they tried it over and over, they've been doing it since she got in. It's all turning, they lost. It's all turning, think of it, think of it. And this is their new hoax"

But thirty seconds later Trump said, "And so far we have lost nobody to coronavirus in the United States. Nobody. And it doesn't mean we won't and we are totally prepared. It doesn't mean we won't..."

So it's a hoax, but Trump says we're prepared and some people might die? Maybe, just maybe, Trump wasn't lying later when he said he meant the media's reaction to it was the hoax and not the virus.

He slammed a pudgy fist on the arm of the couch, which cursed at him in response.

Suddenly, his phone rang. He shifted it slightly in his tattered, ill-fitting pants so that its vibration would tingle his embarrassingly undersized member before answering it.

"I'm here," he said, breathing in the ripe smell of his nadsweat.

"Something's come up," a bored feminine voice said. "We're needed."

Citizens realize China is a deadly enemy despite the propaganda bombardment on the behalf of the PRC. Unfortunately, our politicians have sold us out for decades, and literally sold us out, too.

159 We already covered how he's not running for re-election, right?

Ignoring the $$ corruption angle here (already covered by everybody), note he is the tip of the iceberg, in the Senate, in terms of openly or passively opposing some key Trump agenda items (borders and illegal and legal immigration).

And the jaw-dropping trainwreck that is the SSCI (intel committee) he has co-chaired during the Mega-Scandal is his fault.

But also note: so far there is almost no sign of any improvement in the Senate. Trump endorses all incumbents automatically (since Corker and Flake), reducing the slim chance that Mitch would lose control and see a different type join his caucus.

187 For the record: One of the main reasons I should be able to weather this virus thing is because of Trump's booming economy over the past few years. It's allowed me to build up enough of a cushion, financial and otherwise, to handle stuff like this.

Back during the Obama "recovery," I was basically living with zero margin for error. And I knew other guys who had it even worse. Those years were some of the most tense I've every lived through; I'm telling you, I was skating thisclose to the edge. If this had struck back then, it would have been an absolute catastrophe for me and a lot of other folks.

But thanks to Trump, I should come out of this OK. Not great, but a whooooooole lot better than I would have been under Obama.

He doesn't regard the ability to pay your bills as being life supporting?

192 There's some idiot female doc who appears on Fox and Friends, and she
and her surgeon husband are staying in their comfy home with their two
kids.
She actually said she leaves her mail in the mailbox overnight
because FLU and opens packages from Amazon on her front porch, then
comes inside and washes her hands and uses sanitizer.

At some point, this becomes cray-cray.
I do too. Sorry. I wiped down all my amazon fresh packaged food with clorox wipes too.

My mom is in a retirement community and doesn't want to leave. She's a very with it 98. My sister and I plan to pull her out if it shows up where she is. I have to be not infected to do that.

199 114 I honestly thing this one one paycheck based off some retard scale is stupid.

Instead of doing this they should provide relief packages (not bail out) tailored to small businesses in the food industry and other industries most impacted by the Chinese flu.

Posted by: Two Weeks From Buying a Zooey Deschanel Doll at March 19, 2020 06:46 PM (+dsLj)


Hear, hear. The possibility of many thousands of small businesses being destroyed due the reaction to the Chinese virus only to be gobbled up at pennies on the dollar during the subsequent liquidation is nauseating. Then, those small business owners will be kicked in the balls whilst down as they watch the protected industries (e.g., airlines) surviving due to taxpayer bailouts.

Pretty much the case in all of CA. Plumbing and sewers were designed to have water flow to move the stuff. We've been having some rains lately, which is probably why they noticed it backing up. Still, those things don't break down, they're not supposed to be flushed.

No doubt when the amount goes up 100 fold literally overnight I'm not even sure a 5 gallon flush would help. They're supposed to go to landfill.

349 Bill Gates retired last month from his position he has held for nearly 40 years, Chairman of the Board, Microsoft. He is 64 years old. Very young for a COB of a F100 company.

Yet, he is still the largest single shareholder, 1.36% of all MS stock.

He retired from day to day Microsoft activities over a decade ago.

Fact is, Bill wanted to do other things than software, and his Gates Foundation, funded with billions of his stock donations that split a dozen or more times, and paid no taxes on, is his machine.

Bill has found a new motivation the last decade or two, infectious diseases and their effect on populations.

So he disappears from the public and MS, and then this worldwide panic starts right after?


How does everyone else like being in a Gates lab experiment?

And Bill is an active Democrat, complete with his money, never forget this. This Beervirus activity is certainly the biggest threat to Trump's second term.

374 I think depending on the duration/severity of this thing, there will be retroactive relief for businesses in store.

Much of the US (CA for example) is some kind of weird twilight zone where *no conceivable idiotic damaging policy* results in *any* pushback or political consequences - but I think this sudden, sharp, and serious enough that the national corpse will twitch at least once more.

388 We have an actual solution for that. It's a
vest that vibrates your chest at high frequency. Cystic fibrosis patients use them.


One of our sound guys is another bass player (he special-ordered a Dingwall fanned-fret 5-string with 2 ea. 9V battries, nice) and last summer he brought in a little black box that you thread onto the strap. He plugged my bass into it and it vibrated at the same fundamental as the note played. Drummers have had a similar device for years.

It was unusual. He went through the ranges of the controls and at one point I couldn't see anything but a blur because vibrate like a mofo. Can't remember what it was called.

397 The next two weeks will be crucial in figuring out where we are.

Michigan hasn't even been shut down for a full week, and the first deaths are now being reported. Cases have tripled, but most of that is due to more rigorous testing.

If things level off, the restrictions can be lifted.

If they keep going up, I don't think any additional limits will work.

I know I'm in the minority here for supporting time-tested anti-pandemic measures and my chief complaint is that the governors were too slow in imposing them and now seem to be trying to play catch-up. I'm not sure that will work.

GnuBreed - I think it's quite regional. Have spoken with several people in the biz and they say things are fairly normal. Even a few days of "normal" buying across the inventory, and stores would look like they did a week ago (here in SoCal - pretty much normal at that point).

Now he is all do not panic it will not be as bad as crazy predictions. What happened Bill did the simple societal experiment you were trying get out of hand

Probably didn't happen.

However, one time Gates released a whole bunch of mosquitoes in a room full of donors, then after the presentation, told them that everyone who had been bitten was now infected with malaria. Then he told them oh, just kidding, the mosquitoes were malaria free!

They were pissed.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at March 19, 2020 07:21 PM (KZzsI)

That depends a bit - most of a restaurant's cost is labor, wait staff, kitchen staff, bartender, manager, and greeters. You costs, real costs, are any lost fresh food items stored that will not last - expensive. And rent...but if you are a landlord, you'll work out a deal, because you are not getting another renter in that spot anytime soon. So, if the town, county, state gives you a break on real estate taxes, the landlord can hang on.

Its dicey - but I am betting that a great deal of the restaurant owners hang on - they do in seasonal places like Montauk, etc. - as long as it isn't needed for over 2 months.

425 >>Um, not to spread panic, but we are at 13k confirmed cases now. Only 176 dead so far, though, which is nice.

New York City was at 814 confirmed cases on Tuesday. It was at 3,615 as of de Blasio's press conference a couple hours ago. And that's just NYC not the whole state which is at 4,597.

All of that growth didn't happen in a day. The testing is finally starting to kick in. de Blasio looked like he was on the edge of panic today. He claimed the city only had enough medical supplies/beds to last 2 or 3 weeks.

But yeah, blew right through 10,000 and on the march toward 20,000.

You can put your hair out - there are over 8.35M people living on top of each other in NYC alone - an incident rate of .043% - NOT death rate, incident rate. The number of people who came and went before travel restrictions happened is unmeasurable. And here we sit two months later with an infectious rate that is incredible small.

I have seen Mayor D for sometime look panicked if hobos were being roused too much at Penn - the man is a complete and total nitwit - his emotional responses to anything should have zero impact on a mature persons perspective on this.

They were wrong. We've already passed 10,000 and climbing. Because as I and others have been pointing our for the last couple weeks we haven't been doing any significant testing. Now it's beginning.
