    1. 7xz 77 : Still better than the actual potus. Biden is no perfect candidate. But at least the White House would start to function again. It is about to restore something like a administration. Even a weak potus is preferable to an insane one.

    2. @ruth depew you’re a typical coward who lives in fear. This virus does not kill most of the people infected, we should have never shut down anything and just told the old and sick to quarantine.

    3. @David Clark you’re an absolute moron. The amount of people coming into the country from China vs West Africa aren’t even close. The outbreak of Ebola was already known prior to the people traveling, unlike the people who traveled before the virus in China was reported. Ebola only spreads by direct contact with body fluids of those infected, while covid is airborne and easily transmissible. You need to shut up and not speak about stuff you know nothing about.

      Fareed is CNN version of Hitlers right hand Hess. The Socialist party was the Party of Hitler and Russia and Hitler used racism against the Jews to round them up and send them to gas chambers in the death camps of Germany ! The Democrat Socialist/Communist Party is doing the same plays right out of Hitlers playbook. Welcome to the New Democrat/Socialist Party of Oceania where the thought police are coming for you and your family.. Challenge them..

    2. @gobigorange you think that little of someone who differs from you politically that you would watch them die. Yeah, you are the morally superior one here. You are just a sociopath.

  1. This guy, always has the wisest insights in my view. His geopolitical view is well worth listening to

    1. I agree, particularly with the part of the video where he said the lockdown would starve people.
      UN said it would kill 265 million. And unlike covid, starvation has a 100% kill rate.

  2. No one in the developing world wants anything to do with trump he has turned America into a 3rd world country.

    1. @Vlad the Inhaler these people are emotional weirdos who have nothin factual to say ever. Phuck trying to explain anything to these people

    1. soylentdean hey liberals don’t want people knowing that so you better stop or we will call you a racist

    2. @Kim Hansen
      In other countries when they get the vaccine, in a years time, the government will buy it and it will be free
      In america it will cost 1000s of dollars. NOT covered by insurance companies so millions will die because of greed.
      trumps trying to get ANYTHING out before the election, even before its tested
      and we all know his last touting was a killing drug and now banned in many countries.

    3. @sparkle Nick I hope that if America does develop it first you won’t take it, you know on principle.

  3. First wave affected mostly elderly and second wave will spare none. It’s time people start understanding the need for social distancing.

    1. @[cooler] xVS 1[UNIT]
      here’s hoping the trump rally is a fantastic great tremendous success
      *FOR COVID*

    2. If only Hitlers new Democrat Socialist Party would distance from America and take their Antifa Blm terrorists with them America would be groovy. Hey Democrat socialists of Oceania.. 1984 is calling..

    3. @Hawkzblade population control man. Keep people isolated. Weaken there immune system. Defund police..decrease population. Make people government dependent. This is the government you all love.

  4. Trump: “So here’s the good news, we’re back!!!”

    COVID-19: “So here’s the bad news, I never left. It appears that some among you are only capable of learning things the hard way. But have no fear, I will teach you the only way I know how, the hard way…..my preferred way.”💪😆

    1. terry stinnett yeah they really have no reason to protest right? Don’t agree with not staying safe distances but these are very strange times. Really no actual protocol for civil unrest and a global pandemic. I don’t feel any of us has any real control on any of what’s going on. Do you?

    2. Democrats are killing them selfs . Who are the ones rioting and killing people. Covid 18 and democrats .

    3. @Damn Yankee you Sir are either an idiot or a psychic. Since even a psychic is not stupid enough to think that all the people rioting and killing were Democrats, I’ll have to go with the former.

      Everything you said here is just so wrong on so many levels. Democrats are not killing themselves. Also just who the hell are you to say that the small number of people rioting and killing people were Democrats. I guess the two brain cells you rub together to think with, considers all the people protesting are rioters. Of note most of the people that were protesting were at least wearing masks.

      On June 19th your glorious leader, is going to have a rally in Tulsa OK. Lets see how many Republicans are smart enough to wear masks. Because Covid19 doesn’t only like to riot and kill, it likes to rally and kill.

      Please do the world a favor and give those two brain cells a rest before one of them dies, not that it would be a great lose to the world.

    1. Frankly no need. Manage your own. You’ll have some problems soon…..
      Developing world needs to grow on its on.

      Thank you for the wishes though.

    2. @PerrinLogainKadanFan
      yeah well it saves lives as all america does is kill.
      lets hope Covid evens things up with a bigger death rate.

  5. Hey Fareed, can you please do a ‘Take’ on the Chinese Yuan, or some form of digital currency supplanting the US Dollar as the global reserve currency. Thank you.

    1. sure. not going to happen.

      there. don’t need some fancy guy in a suit on television to tell you the obvious. china is still decades away from even matching the standards of living of the united states, let alone surpassing them in any meaningful way. all of their rich and powerful and well-connected citizens, including the ones with official communist regime ties, are hoarding dollars and purchasing properties and investing in the united states and europe and anywhere that isn’t china. if you have any common sense, that should tell you everything you need to know about the prospects of the yuan supposedly “supplanting the dollars as the global reserve currency”.

      lol, the yuan.. the god damn yuan. it’s almost funny. you’re talking about a currency that the regime won’t even allow to be valued fluidly and independently by the markets.. it’s pegged to the dollar, and the chinese regime itself literally sets the price of their currency each day by saying “okay, it’s worth this much compared to the dollar”, and only allowing it to fluctuate by 2% over or under. there is no way of even knowing the true value or their currency, but they have been undervaluing it for decades. their central bank has been building up a giant stockpile of trillions and trillions of dollars by purchasing dollars over the decades.

      so yeah, even the chinese don’t want their own currency. hopefully that answers your question.

    2. Please do not listen to this guy above me and his ignorant, inmature and terribly written garbage speech. ISSA DRACO

    3. The Yuan is not internationally trusted. As it currency trade rate is controlled by the Chinese Government. Only a “fluid” and quite stabile currency will be accepted as a trade currency. China may possible be able to “force” it’s currency to be used when they trade with a few nations that are severely dependent of Chinese investments. But not otherwise. It would be like that the government that controls the rate can—more or less simplified—decide prices of goods in the nations it trades with. China has already been heavily criticized about how their government manipulates its value.

      Digital currencies have no national bank behind that makes the currency trustworthy. A company that has the economy like a smaller nation (like Amazon) could perhaps try to produce an alternative. But no nation want to use a currency controlled by a private businesses with its own agenda (making money) in trade. Only if nations join together and creates such a (digital) currency, will it be accepted. But nations would not be able to agree on basic principles, and I doubt there is any interest. Perhaps if some extremely bright macroeconomical experts join up and can design a digital currency that is extremely stable, trustworthy in how it “works”, and has benefits for all people and businesses that uses it around the world, could it possible slowly be accepted for global commerce. Personally I hope something like that could be achieved one day. And perhaps it can with the use of AI (AI is already used to optimize gains for those who trade on the stock-markets around the world). But I think we are a long way from there.

      I think the only currency that to some extent has been used as an international trade currency—because of Trumps/USAs international policies, sanctions, and trade wars—is the €. If Trump/USA continues down this path the € might become more important. But in the foreseeable future probably only when trading with the EU-region. Can’t imagine any other currency right now being used. The € has some issues because the Euro-nations have problems to agree how it should be used to defeat inflation, etc. But still, because it is used by so many nations, some with very strong economies, it has strength. And the Euro-nations are also constantly working to make the currency more stable and trustworthy.

  6. Masks and gloves for all for two weeks and we’ll be good. Then we can save the world which is definitely going to need saving.

  7. We need our income from our jobs to be protected if your employer does go under or you’re temporarily laid off. Something Congress has been working on but the Senate rejecting.

  8. Mind Begs the Question:
    Mass Surveillance – not Tyranny,
    Wearing Mask – Tyranny?

    1. Hiding behind law enforcement and the military – strong man tactic,
      Wearing a mask to protect others – weak man tactic?

  9. “for then there will be great tribulation  such as has not occurred since the world’s beginning until now, no, nor will occur again.”(Matthew 24:21)

  10. Just as the Bonespur calls it the Wuhan Virus, to be consistent we should call the global financial crisis the American Greed Crisis, no?
