The losses that started with Asian markets opening continued as European and North American markets opened leading to "circuit breaker" trading halts as stock indexes fell faster than fiat market operators could deign to tolerate (archived). Italian markets have been hit particularly hard as the novel coronavirus has managed to thrive there leading to the quarantine of 15 regions. In the past 20 years, only the reopening of the NYSE in the aftermath of 9/11 and October 23rd, 2008 rival the S&P 500 ETF's opening losses today. Sorry for your loss.
Afro-supremacist Ousseynou Sy, who tried to burn 50 Italian children under his care as a bus driver back in March has claimed that he is not to blame for his attempted holocaust. Instead he asserts that former Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini is to blame for implementing policies discouraging African migration to Italy (archived). Sy claimed the policies contributed to the deaths of Africans despite reported drowning deaths actually declining during the period they were in effect. Salvini has since lost the Interior Ministry after his party's coalition with the Five Star Movement was replaced by a coalition between Five Star and a legacy Pantsuitist party. Unrepentant and without any legal defense, Sy claims he would burn busses full of children "a hundred times" to avenge his African fellow travelers.
The left-right populist coalition in Italy has collapsed after the smaller right leaning partner Lega Nord proved to be far more popular once the government was installed (archived). The left partner 5 Star Movement is now desperately flirting with more traditionally Pantsuit left parties in a long shot effort to avoid snap elections. The increasing popularity of Lega Nord appears to almost entirely derive from Interior Minister Matteo Salvini's visible efforts to keep Africa from continuing to relocate to Italy.
A Sengalese-Italian schoolbus driver tried and failed to kill the 51 Italian children on his schoolbus after allegedly declaring his intent to avenge Africans dying at sea (archived). The busdriver restrained the children before pouring petrol and lighting it up. At least 12 needed medical attention for smoke inhalation, but no deaths are being reported. The bus driver became a naturalized Italian citizen in 2004 and has been previously arrested for driving drunk and sexually molesting.
As French Despot Macron continues gassing and maiming the French people, he has withdrawn France's Ambassador from Rome alleging Italy has been supporting the French People's push for democracy. The Yellow Jacket protest against the Macron regime are continuing, every weekend, since starting last year.
At the same time Macron is condemned by an overwhelming majority of French people, he is continuing to push for regime change against recently re-elected Venezuelan caudillo Nicolás Maduro Moros. Maduro manages to draw protest crowds of similar size both supporting and opposing him to the streets of Caracas while Macron only manages to draw crowds opposing him to the streets of Paris.
Today representatives of numerous neutral Latin American countries are meeting with diplomats from Europe and Venezuela in Montevideo for a series of meetings to engage in "diplomatic process", CIA Stooge and self declared 'interim President' Juan Guiadó has refused to participate in diplomacy.
Italian "law enforcement" stole approximately 2 tons of cocaine in transit from Colombia to Spain while the conveying ship was in the port of Genoa (archived). After Italian police swapped the valuable cargo with salt, the ship departed for Barcelona where a 59 year old man was arrested for taking possession of the mundane salt.
A jury in Melbourne, Australia decided to unanimously convict Vatican finance chief Cardinal George Pell of sexual abuse occurring when he was the Archbishop of Melbourne (archived). Cardinal Pell is a strong proponent of Argentine Anti-Pope Francis's Child Molestation and Socialism agenda. The convicting court issued an order supressing reports of the conviction by the compliant Australian media.
Wop Anti-Trump campaigner Michael Avenatti, though facing potential criminal charges for his role in falsifying evidence to slander Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh before his confirmation, has managed to get arrested and charged for beating his wife in Los Angeles. Rather than repeat "believe women" as he did when he was part of the crowd, now that he is in the hot seat he is alleging Pro-Trump Jew Jacob Wohl set him up and somehow bruised his wife's face in the process.
Numerous media outlets over the weekend began making a scandal out of Pope Francis's (Jesuit from Argentina) habit of extending mercy to high ranking officials of the Roman Church who themselves showed mercy to child molesters in their charge. Muted forms of this accusation have plagued Popes since the 1990's, but Francis finds himself in a vulnerable position after himself molesting the Roman Church and injecting it with more new poz than it has seen since the Vatican II debacle.
While it is too soon to predict an early end to the Argentine one-lunged wonder's papacy, this is the first time the mainstream pozz'd press has been pushed to criticize the man they once dubbed "Cool Pope" for his embrace of cultural marxism.
