Senator Richard Burr Warned Of Coronavirus Effects In Private Meeting - Intelligence Chairman Raised Virus Alarms Weeks Ago, Secret Recording Shows

So, Burr let the fat cats know what was coming while the rest of us were being treated like mushrooms...kept in the dark and fed bullshit.
Did Burr make any public appearances on Fox News or any other media outlet in that timeframe?

If he was communicating a different message to the public, that would be one thing.

Burr spoke to his big donors on February 27. Just two days before I started this topic: Brace Yourselves For Another Stock Market Dive On Monday

I had the same knowledge as was available to the rest of the public. So I would not go so far as to say Burr was committing "insider trading".

But if he was telling the public not to worry while telling his donors shit was about to hit the fan, then he should be recalled.

you had this information....


There's one thing that I can tell you about this: It is much more aggressive in its transmission than anything that we have seen in recent history," he said, according to a secret recording of the remarks obtained by NPR. "It is probably more akin to the 1918 pandemic."

I was looking at economic data to make my assessment. The biggest signal to me was China's PMI had dropped to 35.7. I called that a "real shit show".

Anyone could have seen this coming.

Not everyone did.

Just a few days ago, a poster on this forum was denying the stock market has crashed!

Talk about willfully blind!

For clarification, GG, are you seriously trying to suggest that you are not a bullshit eating moron?
I think it is worth wondering why our leaders were not warning the public. Why they put the party line above their constituents' health and well being.

Oh please.

"Every company should be cognizant of the fact that you may have to alter your travel. You may have to look at your employees and judge whether the trip they're making to Europe is essential or whether it can be done on video conference. Why risk it?" Burr said.

It was already being reported publicly it was becoming a major problem in parts of Europe.
Yeah, real insider trading tips.

Trump February 26: “Because of all we’ve done, the risk to the American people remains very low. When you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero. That’s a pretty good job we’ve done."

Trump February 28: “It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”

Look at what Burr said. It was a problem in Europe. Geesh. -Think about your travel.- He mentioned nothing about the US in that statement.

The bailout has to be bigger because we are already in a massive hole created by socialist policies.

That's the thing about socialism. It feeds on itself.

Yeah, you have on public servant saying in private it was going to be as bad as the 1918 pandemic.

You have another public servant saying in public that it would all be over in a few days.

Why did our politicians put the party line above the health and well-being of the public?

The 1918 influenza virus was killing young people. The SARS-2 coronavirus is killing old people. The demographic is significantly different.

And the burden is an additional stress during flu season.
