Tesla surged after reporting its best first-quarter delivery numbers ever, despite disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic. ⁣ ⁣The Palo Alto, California-based electric-vehicle maker delivered 88,400 vehicles in the quarter, easily exceeding the consensus estimate of 79,908. Shipments increased from about 63,000 vehicles a year earlier. ⁣ ⁣Tesla delivered 76,200 Model 3/Model Y vehicles and 12,200 Model S/Model X vehicles. Its Shanghai production plant “continued to achieve record levels of production, despite significant setbacks," the company said. ⁣ ⁣The COVID-19 pandemic has caused governments around the world to issue “stay-at-home” orders, leading to the temporary closure of non-essential businesses, including the company’s Shanghai and Fremont, California, production plants.

Fauci : “It boggles my mind how, when we have so many diseases that emanate out of that unusual human-animal interface, that we just don't shut it down"

White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Friday that all of China's wet markets should be shut down immediately in light of the pandemic ravaging much of the world. ⁣ ⁣“It boggles my mind how, when we have so many diseases that emanate out of that unusual human-animal interface, that we just don't shut it down,” Fauci told “Fox & Friends.” ⁣ ⁣“I don’t know what else has to happen to get us to appreciate that,” Fauci said. ⁣ ⁣While rumors have swirled that the virus originated in bats and then infected another animal that passed it onto people at a market in the southeastern Chinese city of Wuhan, scientists have not yet determined exactly how the new coronavirus infected people. But these kinds of markets are not known to operate in the most sanitary conditions. ⁣ ⁣Fauci said that other countries should speak out against any unsanitary selling of wildlife. ⁣ ⁣“In other countries in which this is commonplace, I would like to see the rest of the world really lean with a lot of pressure on those countries that have that because what we’re going through right now is a direct result of that,” he said.

◾️◾️REVEALED◾️◾️ Progressive organizations, many backed by billionaire activist George Soros, are at the front lines of a campaign advocating for a “vote by mail” system in the upcoming presidential election, citing fears that the Chinese coronavirus pandemic makes it too dangerous to vote in person. President Donald Trump warned that voting by mail would hurt the Republican Party, lambasting Democrat proposals for more money in the coronavirus stimulus bill to fund absentee and vote-by-mail options. “The things they had in there were crazy,” Trump said. “They had things – levels of voting that, if you ever agreed to it, you’d never have a Republican elected in this country again.” Analysts have posited that such proposals help the Democratic Party. Republicans specifically fear the prospect of voter fraud, since mail-in voting would be much harder to authenticate. Soros’s Open Society Foundations have long sought to change the way Americans vote, also funding groups looking to expand the use of electronic and online voting systems nationwide. Leading the mail-in ballot charge is the Brennan Center for Justice, located at NYU School of Law. The Brennan Center is heavily financed by Soros’s Open Society Foundations and is the recipient of numerous Open Society grants. Breitbart News previously reported the Brennan Center was listed in leaked Open Society Foundations documents as receiving funds specifically earmarked for “litigation to expand access to registration and improve ease of voting.” Alongside the Brennan Center are a slew of progressive groups tied to Soros money that are working overtime to push mail-in voting. Some of the groups are using the coronavirus crisis to advocate permanent changes to the way Americans vote.

Liberal Cities Reverse Plastic Bag Ban

From #WashTimes' Jeff Mordock: San Francisco has reversed its 13-year ban on plastic bags and will now prohibit the reusable bags city leaders once championed because of the coronavirus. ➤Tap the link in our bio to read more The liberal city announced the switch this week as part of its plan to curb the spread of coronavirus. Barring customers from bringing reusable bags, mugs and other household items into stores was adopted as a measure “to prevent unnecessary contact” among the public. San Francisco is not the only place that has reversed its reusable bag policy, but it is certainly the most surprising. The city was at the forefront of eliminating single-use plastic bags in 2007. At that time, San Francisco’s board of supervisors linked plastic bags to a litany of scourges, including litter, global warming, big oil and endangering sea life. But the coronavirus has changed all that. As of Thursday afternoon, California was one of the states most ravaged by the virus reporting 10,000 cases and 200 deaths. #sanfran #california #sanfrancisco #recycle #green #news #realnews #reusable #plastic #recycleplastic #covid19 #covid #coronavirus #stayhome #stayhealthy #socialdistancing

Trump Admin pushes out hundreds of millions in small business loans on first day

View this post on Instagram

🇺🇸🇺🇸BREAKING🇺🇸🇺🇸 President Donald Trump’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) through the Department of Treasury and Small Business Administration has already on its first day pushed out more than $620 million to small businesses nationwide mostly through community banks. A senior Treasury Department official told Breitbart News on Friday morning that as of 10:30 a.m. eastern time, a total of 1,652 loans were given out through 239 different banks for a total of $628,371,561. Most of the big banks like JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and Citigroup did not have programs online—only Bank of America did—early Friday morning, so this means community banks nationwide are the ones stepping up to push the money out to small businesses affected by the coronavirus crisis. “When the unprecedented PPP loan program for America’s small businesses went live in the early morning hours of April 3, the community banks were the ones ready to go,” the senior Treasury Department official told Breitbart News. “Unlike the big banks that are coming online later in the day, the community banks were up and running and ready to serve their small businesses. America’s community banks are the real heroes.” It’s worth noting too that given that community banks are the ones stepping up to help small businesses—and that they’re doing it at such a rapid pace on the first day of the program—that this counters the narrative from some on the left and in establishment media that somehow the efforts of Trump, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and the broader administration were designed to only help big corporate cronies. Friday, as Mnuchin and Small Business Administration administrator Jovita Carranza announced at the White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing on Thursday night, is the first day these funds are going out to small businesses nationwide through banks across the country. The Paycheck Protection Program, or PPP, passed as part of the $2.2 trillion phase three coronavirus relief package that Congress passed last week.
