    "Johns Hopkins, I guess, is a highly respected great place. They did a study, comprehensive. The countries best and worst prepared for an epidemic, and the United States is now… We’re rated number one. We’re rated number one for being prepared. This is a list of different countries."

    Apparently, Mike Pence is testing stand up comedy as a post Washington gig.

    Probably heard me say it before but I've been in the industry for most of a decade now and I've heard many times that $50 is the magic number where companies will typically choose laying down rigs over drilling. That sucks, especially since the area where he's at is the most active play in the country right now (Permian)

    It also seems like Iran is heading into the abyss.

    Is that the only place they can get the money from? Weird.

    Definitely love Pocahontas brazenly politicizing corona. I won’t have to worry about voting for her, but she’s a hard fucking pass for me.

    $52 a barrel is a tipping point for Russia. The centralized planning of the economy is dependent on crude prices not falling below that level. Nice to see some pliers on Russian balls.

    The CDC has stated that a proposed $2.5B funding infusion will not be nearly enough if the US is hit hard by the corona virus. Perhaps Very Stable Genius will divert diverted funds currently destined for his Vanity Wall.

    Yeah those prices are close to where the industry bottomed out in 2015-2016. Oil has a way to go yet. Need to get under $30 to match those lows.The mild winter is adding to NatGas pain.

    Someone on CNBC this week made a comment about oil along the lines of "it would already be in the low 30's if Iran wasn't cut off again and Venezuela wasn't a total shitshow"

    I imagine the facts will come out on this eventually. But if true this seems very bad. The Post, Times, and WSJ all posted versions of this story within minutes of each other.

    New whistleblower complaint alleges that HHS workers were sent to meet the planes carrying the first Americans from Wuhan with little infection control training and without the appropriate protective gear. The HHS workers, with insufficient gear, ended up working alongside CDC employees in full hazmat suits. When the whistleblower complained, they were told they were being reassigned to a new position, and would be fired if they didn't accept it within 15 days.

    Also Erdogan has a card to play here if NATO will not come to its defense...just let the refugees pass through if Europe/USA will neither intercede in Syria or defend Turkey

    It's really heating up. A new report suggests the Russians targeted and destroyed the Turkish military's field HQ. And the same source claimed minutes ago that Turkey may already be retaliating against cities along the Syrian coast,
