BlackRock pandemic bailout plan – August 2019

Post by Firestarter »

Months before the corona “pandemic” was started, the biggest investment fund in the world, BlackRock where the Trump family invests their savings, authored a plan to go “direct” in the next crisis, blurring the lines between government fiscal policy and central bank monetary policy.
The plan was rolled out in August 2019 at the G7 summit of central bankers.

On 17 September 2019, the U.S. Federal Reserve would begin an emergency repo loan bailout program, loaning hundreds of billions of dollars a week by “going direct” (similar to the BlackRock plan).
Then because of the coronavirus crisis, for the first time in history, US Congress handed over $454 billion of taxpayers’ money to the Fed that will be leveraged into a $4.54 trillion bailout plan.
Nobody will argue that the crisis was caused by government policy instead of any coronavirus...

In the United States, some 85% of the stock market is owned by the richest 10% of Americans.
Buying stocks will effectively make the wealthy even richer, while income inequality is already at the highest levels since the 1920s.

The BlackRock plan also explains the fiscal stimulus of the CARES Act with “direct” $1200 checks and deposits to “poor” Americans and Paycheck Protection Program loans and grants to small businesses.

BlackRock plays an important role in implementing the plan that under the guide of the coronavirus pandemic. BlackRock has even been hired by the US Federal Reserve, the Bank of Canada, and Sweden’s central bank to implement parts of the plan.
The Federal Reserve hired BlackRock to “direct” buy $750 billion in corporate bonds and bond ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds). The BlackRock-run program will get $75 billion of this money to eat the losses on its corporate bond purchases, which will include its own Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) of which BlackRock is one of the largest purveyors in the world.

Three of the 4 authors of the BlackRock plan have previously worked at the central banks in the U.S., Israel, Canada and Switzerland.
Stanley Fischer: in 2005 went from Vice Chairman of Citigroup to become Governor of the central bank of Israel. In 2014 he became a Governor and Vice Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve. After he resigned at the Fed in October 2017, he became a Senior Advisor at BlackRock in January 2019.
Philipp Hildebrand: was Chairman of the Governing Board of the Swiss National Bank from 2010 until 2012 (he abruptly resigned over a scandal in which his wife trades in currencies about which he had inside information). Hildebrand is now Vice Chairman of BlackRock and a member of its Global Executive Committee.
Jean Boivin: Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada in 2010-2012, when he became Associate Deputy Minister at the Department of Finance of Canada. He joined BlackRock in 2014.
Elga Bartsch: has previously worked at Morgan Stanley in London: https://wallstreetonparade.com/2020/06/ ... -the-plan/

See the following nuggets from the white paper...
A practical way of “going direct” would need to deliver the following: 1) defining the unusual circumstances that would call for such unusual coordination; 2) in those circumstances, an explicit inflation objective that fiscal and monetary authorities are jointly held accountable for achieving; 3) a mechanism that enables nimble deployment of productive fiscal policy, and; 4) a clear exit strategy. Such a mechanism could take the form of a standing emergency fiscal facility. It would be a permanent set-up but would be only activated when monetary policy is tapped out and inflation is expected to systematically undershoot its target over the policy horizon.

(...)

Any additional measures to stimulate economic growth will have to go beyond the interest rate channel and ‘go direct’ – [with] a central bank crediting private or public sector accounts directly with money. One way or another, this will mean subsidizing spending – and such a measure would be fiscal rather than monetary by design. This can be done directly through fiscal policy or by expanding the monetary policy toolkit with an instrument that will be fiscal in nature, such as credit easing by way of buying equities. This implies that an effective stimulus would require coordination between monetary and fiscal policy –be it implicitly or explicitly.

From the Netherlands, a similar policy was proposed in March for Europe; calling for the European Central Bank (ECB) to “go direct” in the next crisis.
Chapter 7 details a policy for the Eurozone that’s very similar to what BlackRock proposed in August 2019...
The ECB is reaching the limits of its monetary policy space, with negative interest rates and the limits of the sovereign bond buying programme in sight. This should induce fiscal policy makers to play a more active role in stimulating the economy were a new economic downturn to strike. However, it seems prudent for the ECB to also explore new options for monetary policy that could support such fiscal efforts to counter deflationary pressures. Following fiscal action, monetary policy space could be created using new instruments that have a more direct effect on the economy.
They refer to the “policy framework” of the BlackRock paper.
The effectiveness of such a policy framework would depend on it being implemented well in advance of the next downturn. A clear and credible stimulus strategy helps investors to understand what will happen and may thus reduce the amount of stimulus needed.

One of the results of the coronavirus police state is that small businesses are bankrupted, while the big corporations take an ever growing market share (owned by the fabulously wealthy or the giant investment funds including BlackRock and Vanguard)
Eventually, the overall economy will recover, more or less. People will need to buy things and pay for services. But the coronavirus will radically reshape Main Streets across the country, accelerating changes long in the making — chain stores will replace mom-and-pop businesses, some storefronts will remain vacant, and cash that once went into local hands will be redirected to Amazon and Walmart. (Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post.) The pandemic will reinforce and exacerbate what were already the two key economic trends of our lifetime: consolidation and inequality.
(…)
Concentration will also grow as the strongest companies buy up weaker ones that nonetheless have valuable brands and other assets — just as JPMorgan Chase, the least shaky of the major banks, absorbed Bear Stearns and Washington Mutual during the 2008 financial crisis and emerged as the largest bank in the country. Or weaker companies will be taken over by private-equity firms flush with cash, hunting for bargains.
(…)
the post-coronavirus American Dream will be accessible only to children of the fortunate: Get an elite education, work for Google or Goldman Sachs, and start a technology company or become a partner at a private-equity firm.

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice got a $1-2 million in April and another $5-10 million Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan for his luxury Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs.

Hobby Lobby king David Green, associate of smugglers all over the world got a $2-5 million PPP loan for his Museum of the Bible with dubiously acquired artefacts.

Ayn Rand Institute board member Harry Binswanger explained in May why they would “take any relief money offered”:
It would be a terrible injustice for pro-capitalists to step aside and leave the funds to those indifferent or actively hostile to capitalism.
Of course we wouldn’t want tenants to be prevented from paying what they owe the Trump Organization.
Dozens of tenants at buildings owned by the Trump syndicate received funds. More than 20 businesses at the Trump-owned 40 Wall Street received government loans of at least $20 million: http://web.archive.org/web/202007091115 ... institute/
(http://archive.is/G4Zha)


The wealthy receiving low-interest PPP loans include members of Congress and their families, $14 million in relief funds:
At least nine lawmakers and three congressional caucuses have ties to organizations that took millions of dollars in aid.
The dentist Albert Hazzouri, a frequent visitor at Donald’s Mar-a-Lago, asked for a huge PPP loan.
A hospital run by Maria Ryan, close to Donald’s lawyer and former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, requested more than $5 million.

The online Daily Caller that was founded by Trump supporter and FOX News host Tucker Carlson, received up to a cool $1 million.
The TV network and website Newsmax, owned by another confidante of President Donald, Christopher Ruddy, got a loan of $2-5 million.

According to Bureau of Labor Statistics figures already 47.2% of Americans are unemployed.
Many parents cannot pay the food their children “need” (probably nothing compared to the suffering Yemenis) as nearly 14 million children in the USA went hungry in June, that’s 10 million more than in 2018, and almost 3 times the number of children who went hungry during the “Great Recession”.

I hate to tell you that the economic collapse will hit even harder in the week of July 25, the last week of the CARES act increase of $600 in unemployment benefits.
The moratorium on evictions from federally subsidised housing will also end that week: https://dissidentvoice.org/2020/07/covi ... le-suffer/

The coronavirus pandemic could result in some 28 million Americans being evicted, one expert said.
We have never seen this extent of eviction in such a truncated amount of time in our history. We can expect this to increase dramatically in the coming weeks and months, especially as the limited support and intervention measures that are in place start to expire. About 10 million people, over a period of years, were displaced from their homes following the foreclosure crisis in 2008. We’re looking at 20 million to 28 million people in this moment, between now and September, facing eviction.

It isn’t only the US that suffers from the orchestrated economic collapse.
In the first 6 months of 2020, 2,500 children in the UK were admitted to hospital with malnutrition – double the amount of the same period in 2019.

Since 2015, 11,515 hospital admissions for malnourishment of under-16s in the UK occurred (1800 per year from 2015 to 2019): https://www.theguardian.com/society/202 ... six-months

The Trump administration finally released the list of the more than 650,000 “small businesses” that got $150,000 or more in low-interest loans from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

The Foremost shipping company of the family of Donald’s Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao got $350,000 to $1 million in PPP loans.

The eugenics Planned Parenthood movement received at least $40 million in PPP loans across the US.

Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform Foundation received $150,000-$300,000 in PPP loans.

Dozens of law firms received PPP aid, including the New York law firm headed by President Donald’s long-time attorney Marc Kasowitz, which received a PPP loan worth $5-10 million.

Not really surprising that also several members of Congress or their spouses got PPP aid: https://www.bbc.com/news/business-53324891
(http://archive.is/5s8Vk)


At least 3 businesses of the Chabad-Lubavitch Kushner in-laws of Donald’s Jewish daughter Ivanka Trump got Paycheck Protection Program loans.
The Observer Holdings LLC that owned the news company Jared Kushner controlled got $350,000 to $1 million in pandemic relief.

Two of the Kushner family's New Jersey hotels - Princeton Forrestal and Esplanade Livingston - also pulled PPP loans: https://www.salon.com/2020/07/08/three- ... out-funds/
(http://archive.is/Gaveb)


Global private membership club Soho House received up to $22 million in 6 different PPP loans.
Soho House is backed by Bill Clinton’s (former) buddy, the billionaire Ron Burkle...

Kanye West has recently announced to run for president, maybe in a ploy to take black votes away from Joe Biden...
I doubt that he is, but Kanye has claimed to be a billionaire.

Kanye West’s brand Yeezy benefited from the Paycheck Protection Program by receiving a loan between $2 million and $5 million.
Kanye's sister-in-law, Khloe Kardashian, also received $1-2 million from the PPP: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... esses.html


CloudCommerce in which Trump (former) campaign manager Brad Parscale owns a great deal of worthless penny stock got $780 thousand in PPP loans: https://www.motherjones.com/2020-electi ... -ppp-loan/


About 950 “Jewish” organisations received more than $500 million in total...
According to Spokoiny: “The best predictor of who would get a loan and wouldn’t is the banking partner they used”.

The controversial Anti-Defamation League (ADL) was 1 of 7 “Jewish” organisations that received a Paycheck Protection Program loan of $5-10 million: https://forward.com/news/450356/sba-loa ... ions-jccs/

On 7 April, the Forbes story that lots of billionaires lost lots of money from the coronavirus “pandemic” was widely (re)published by our wonderful media? It looks like Forbes intentionally selected 18 March as the best date to push this propaganda.
Chuck Collins commented:
We started to immediately look at it and realize, even three weeks later, the story was changing quickly. Their story was, ‘Hey, the pandemic is really affecting even the billionaires; their wealth is down from last year globally and in terms of the U.S.’ What we found was, wait three weeks and they’ve now surpassed last year’s collective wealth and now they’re surging to new heights.
In the same month that 22 million Americans lost their jobs (with US employment rate coming close to 15%), American billionaires added about $282 billion (10%) to their net worth, from 18 March to 10 April. They "now" (in April) together own $3.229 trillion.
The combined wealth of these billionaires is higher than it was in 2019...

Since 1980, the taxes paid by billionaires, as a percentage of their wealth, dropped 79%: https://www.fastcompany.com/90494347/am ... 9-pandemic
(http://web.archive.org/web/202004231205 ... 9-pandemic)


Between 1 January 2020 and 10 April 2020, 34 of the nation’s wealthiest 170 American billionaires have seen their wealth increase by tens of millions of dollars.
Eight of these billionaires grew richer by more than $1 billion: Jeff Bezos (Amazon), MacKenzie Bezos (Amazon), Eric Yuan (Zoom), Steve Ballmer (Microsoft), John Albert Sobrato (Silicon Valley real estate), Elon Musk (Tesla and SpaceX), Joshua Harris (Apollo Global Management), and Rocco Commisso (Mediacom).

Jeff Bezos’ worth supposedly dropped to a “mere” $105 billion by 12 March.
But by 15 April, his net worth is $25 billion more than it was on 1 January 2020.

Eric Yuan added $2.58 billion to his wealth: https://inequality.org/great-divide/bil ... anza-2020/

Last month, the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) and Americans for Tax Fairness (ATF) reported that American billionaires have seen their combined net worth grow by $584 billion in the 3 months since the Covid-19 “pandemic” was started on 18 March and made more than 45 million Americans unemployed.
The five richest billionaires in the U.S. - Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffett, and Larry Ellison - saw their collective wealth grow by $101.7 billion from 18 March to 17 June 17.
Image

Since 18 March, the combined wealth of America's billionaires has grown from $2.948 trillion to $3.531 trillion.

According to Frank Clemente:
Their wealth increased twice as much as the federal government paid out in one-time checks to more than 150 million Americans. This orgy of wealth shows how fundamentally flawed our economic system is.

President Donald has announced that the US army will be mobilised to distribute more than 300 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine by the end of the year.
Of course in such a short amount of time, no proper scientific experiment can be done to prove that the vaccine actually prevents the disease or ensure that the vaccine doesn’t cause serious adverse effects.

To head Operation Warp Speed (for the fast-track a COVID-19 vaccine), President Donald has appointed the Moroccan-born Dr. Moncef Slaoui as Chief Adviser and General Gustave Perna as the Chief Operation Officer.

Moncef Slaoui is the former chairman of GlaxoSmithKline’s vaccines division.
When he was chairman of GSK’s vaccines division, it developed the malaria vaccine Mosquirix, funded by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
GlaxoSmithKline is also working on a COVID-19 vaccine.

After leaving GSK, Slaoui has taken on executive roles at several other biotech firms, including companies that receive funds to develop a COVID-19 vaccine.
Moncef Slaoui has earned $490,000 as a board member at Moderna, Inc. that has received part of the billions of dollars bonanza to develop a gene-altering COVID-19 vaccine.
Slaoui is also a director of the Swiss Lonza Group AG that is working with Moderna on a Covid-19 vaccine.

Slaoui is also a partner at Medicxi, that invests in pharmaceutical industry, and sits on the board of companies that Medicxi has invested in, including as chairman of the board at biotech medical firm Galvani Bioelectronics.
Galvani Bioelectronics was started in 2016 with funding from GSK and Google and specialises in bioelectronic “medicines” – implantable electronic devices labelled a new class of “medicines” consisting of miniaturised: https://healthimpactnews.com/2020/trump ... y-advisor/


Dr. Moncef Slaoui, leader of the White House’s coronavirus vaccine Warp speed program, won’t have to divest his big pharma investments or be subject to ethical disclosure rules.
Moncef Slaoui has extensive ties to big pharma, including as a former executive of pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline, and the biotechnology company Moderna, who are both involved in developing Covid-19 vaccines and have received hundreds of millions in government funding.

Two watchdog groups have demanded that Slaoui be listed as a government employee or a “special government employee” to force him to disclose conflicts of interest.
Because Slaoui is labelled as a “volunteer contractor” he is not required to adhere to federal disclosure rules.
According to Public Citizen:
The contractual arrangement that regards Dr Slaoui as merely a private contractor appears unwarranted and designed primarily to allow Dr Slaoui to maintain an extensive web of conflicting financial interests without the need to divest of, recuse from or disclose those conflicting interests.
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/worl ... 25831.html


In April more than 175,000 businesses in the US closed, most of them because of the lockdown.
By 15 June, there were still nearly 140,000 total business closures since March 1. This shows that almost 80% of these businesses have remained closed.

Among those with the highest rate of business closures are shopping and retail (27,663 closed), restaurants (23,981 closed), beauty (15,348 closed) and fitness (5,589 closed).
Image

Probably more businesses will close with increased job losses ahead.
States like Florida, Texas, and California are again locking down: https://www.yelpeconomicaverage.com/yel ... eport.html

The “world’s richest person” Amazon founder Jeff Bezos added a record breaking $13 billion (£10 billion) in a single day to his fortune. Since January, Bezos has become $74 billion richer to a grand total of $189 billion.
Bezos’s fortune has swelled by Amazon’s rising share price as hundreds of millions of people trapped by the lockdown ordering their needed stuff through the internet. Amazon is worth 70% more than at the start of the year. On Monday alone, the share price rose by 8%.

Bezos is now $71 billion richer than the “second richest man in the world”: Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
Bezos owns 11% of the Amazon’s shares. Bezos would be even richer, if it wasn’t for the costly divorce from his ex-wife MacKenzie last year, who got 25% of his Amazon shares. The boom in Amazon’s share price, increased her fortune by $4.6 billion on Monday and she is now the “world’s 13th-richest person”.

While Bezos or Bill Gates are labelled the “richest person in the world” in reality their billions pale in comparison to Queen Elizabeth’s trillions: https://www.theguardian.com/technology/ ... st-one-day

Thanks to our wonderful media and watchdogs that keep both eyes closed, this is another exclusive story.
I couldn’t find a single story on the internet on this blatant act of censorship that obscures the results of the “going direct” plan in the next “crisis” that was authored by BlackRock in August 2019.


On 26 July, I searched in vain for current information on the major shareholders in BlackRock and PNC Financial Services.
To my shock this information has been (almost) completely censored since 30 March 2020 (for all American corporations!): http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread ... ost6968271

Since December 2017, I have repeatedly looked at the major shareholders in some of the biggest corporation in the USA. So I know that “normally” this information is available every day.


CNN does have some more recent information on “institutional activity” (30 June seems to be the cut off date for that).
Obviously this isn’t current (while CNN doesn’t even list the date of the information!) as PNC Bank is still listed as the biggest shareholder in BlackRock with 22% (that sold most of its stake in May): https://money.cnn.com/quote/shareholder ... titutional

WHO & World Bank predict "World at risk” – September 2019

Post by Firestarter »

In September 2019, the WHO Global Preparedness Monitoring Board published the "A world at risk" report...
I guess it’s just a coincidence that this was not too long after the August 2019 BlackRock “going direct” bailout plan in the next crisis.
I guess it’s also just a case of their great “analytical skills” that they predicted a “severe economic impacts” as the result of “respiratory pathogen pandemic”. Nothing suspicious about any of that!


See some excerpts.
Countries, donors and multilateral institutions must be prepared for the worst.

A rapidly spreading pandemic due to a lethal respiratory pathogen (whether naturally emergent or accidentally or deliberately released) poses additional preparedness requirements. Donors and multilateral institutions must ensure adequate investment in developing innovative vaccines and therapeutics, surge manufacturing capacity, broad-spectrum antivirals and appropriate non-pharmaceutical interventions. All countries must develop a system for immediately sharing genome sequences of any new pathogen for public health purposes along with the means to share limited medical countermeasures across countries.


Progress indicator(s) by September 2020

• Donors and countries commit and identify timelines for: financing and development of a universal influenza vaccine, broad spectrum antivirals, and targeted therapeutics. WHO and its Member States develop options for standard procedures and timelines for sharing of sequence data, specimens, and medical countermeasures for pathogens other than influenza.
• Donors, countries and multilateral institutions develop a multi-year plan and approach for strengthening R&D research capacity, in advance of and during an epidemic.
• WHO, the United Nations Children’s Fund, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, academic and other partners identify strategies for increasing capacity and integration of social science approaches and researchers across the entire preparedness/response continuum.

(..)

Financing institutions must link preparedness with financial risk planning.

To mitigate the severe economic impacts of a national or regional epidemic and/or a global pandemic, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank must urgently renew their efforts to integrate preparedness into economic risk and institutional assessments, including the IMF’s next cycle of Article IV consultations with countries and the World Bank’s next Systematic Country Diagnostics for International Development Association (IDA) credits and grants. Funding replenishments of the IDA, Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria (Global Fund), and Gavi should include explicit commitments regarding preparedness.

(...)

The world is not prepared for a fast-moving, virulent respiratory pathogen pandemic. The 1918 global influenza pandemic sickened one third of the world population and killed as many as 50 million people - 2.8% of the total population (16,17). If a similar contagion occurred today with a population four times larger and travel times anywhere in the world less than 36 hours, 50 - 80 million people could perish (18,19). In addition to tragic levels of mortality, such a pandemic could cause panic, destabilize national security and seriously impact the global economy and trade.

(...)

Progress indicator(s) by September 2020

• The Secretary-General of the United Nations, with the Director-General of WHO and Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, strengthens coordination and identifies clear roles and responsibilities and timely triggers for a coordinated United Nations systemwide response for health emergencies in different countries and different health and humanitarian emergency contexts.
• The United Nations (including WHO) conducts at least two systemwide training and simulation exercises, including one covering the deliberate release of a lethal respiratory pathogen.
• WHO develops intermediate triggers to mobilize national, international and multilateral action early in outbreaks, to complement the existing mechanisms for later and more advanced stages of an outbreak under the IHR (2005).
• The Secretary General of the United Nations convenes a high-level dialogue with health, security and foreign affairs officials to determine how the world can address the threat of a lethal respiratory pathogen pandemic, as well as managing preparedness for disease outbreaks in complex, insecure contexts.
