Reports are coming out that the Biden administration told Americans in Afghanistan that they must pay $2,000 to evacuate from the Kabul airport. Even though federal law requires payment from evacuees, the Biden administration said in a statement that they won't charge Americans leaving Afghanistan. The Taliban now has control over aircrafts and thousands of weapons to include high-tech equipment that was funded by the U.S. government. Is President Biden aware? As evacuations continue in Kabul, reports say that flights leaving the airport are below full capacity. Is the Taliban blocking the evacuation efforts? The U.K. Parliament held President Biden in contempt for his decision to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan and PM Boris Johnson was trying to get a hold of Biden for almost 40 hours.

In this episode we discuss how COVID-19 continues to drive market risk.There has been a pick-up in new Covid-19 cases across Europe - and with it, the prospect of another round of national lockdowns. This poses a major risk to markets, but it is not the only potential source of volatility. The Brexit deadline is looming, with just a few weeks to reach a Free Trade Agreement ahead of the European Council meeting. If an agreement is not forthcoming, it could lead to significant turmoil in financial and currency markets.Then there is the US election, which has been more contentious than most. Biden is still ahead in the polls, but Donald Trump has made it clear he won’t go quietly. History suggests that a disputed election may upset stockmarkets.[0.28] We’ve seen a pick up in new Covid-19 cases across Europe - and with it, the prospect of another round of national lockdowns. Is this a major risk to markets – and are there any other risks we should be thinking about?Yes, we see the risk of more lockdowns as the major risk to markets today, but we also see a number of other tail risks looming this autumnsome of these issues could include a no-deal Brexit, a disputed US election and a sell-off in technology stocks, each of which has the potential to put material downward pressure on equities (at home and abroad). [1.05] OK – let's look at some of those risks in more detail. The Brexit deadline is looming, what’s your reading of the situation?The UK has already left the EU, however, by effectively reopening-up the legislated Withdrawal Agreement, PM Boris Johnson has raised the possibility that the UK may not get even a very basic Free Trade Agreement on goods with the EU when the transition period expires at year endthe British government is changing the Withdrawal Agreement text on fears that in the event of no Free Trade Agreement, the EU could restrict trade between Great Britain and Northern Ireland and undermine the integrity of the UK the government is also concerned that the Northern Ireland Protocol (NIP) in the Withdrawal Agreement could potentially give the EU powers over UK state aid in perpetuity. The UK could make a case for reneging on some commitments made in the revised NIP in October 2019 around the government needing to play a larger role in helping the economy recover from the pandemiccertainly, article 62 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties enables parties to discharge their legal obligations when there has been a “fundamental change in circumstances” since the treaty was signed.  [2.27] And they’re arguing that the Covid-19 outbreak is just this kind of ‘change in circumstances?Exactly, and certainly this has been the biggest economic shock in modern historynevertheless, the EU is unimpressed that the UK is willing to make changes to commitments made less than a year agoBoris Johnson has given the EU a deadline of 15 October to reach a Free Trade Agreement at the European Council meetingif an agreement is not forthcoming, it could lead to volatility in financial and currency markets. [2.59] OK, let’s turn to the US. There’s a lot of noise generated by the election, but what do you see as important? Since the coronavirus crisis hit the media headlines at the start of this year, Joe Biden’s strategy has been to make the November US election an effective referendum on President Trump’s handling of the pandemicin opinion polls President Trump’s job approval rating slipped from 47% at the start of April to a low of 41% at the end of July(1)as lockdown has ended it has steadily recovered to 45% currently(2)for comparison, job approval rating data from Gallup show that in June of an election year, previous incumbents, like George H.W. Bush in 1992 on 37%, Jimmy Carter on 32% in 1980 and Gerald Ford on 45% in 1976, all lost office after one term on such low stats(3)the exception was Harry Truman, who was re-elected in 1948on just 40%(4)it is possible that the race for the keys of the White House is influenced by whether a COVID-19 vaccine is approved for distribution ahead of the electionopinion polls could narrow further and potentially lead to a wafer-thin win for either Joe Biden or Donald Trumpconsidering the partisanship between Democrats and Republicans, a tight election result would be hotly disputed, as it was when Republican George Bush was initially shown to have beaten Democrat Al Gore on 7 November 2000 by a slender margin in Floridagiven the closeness of the result, the Democrats demanded recounts, the S&P 500 fell over 8% during this period of political uncertainty until the Supreme Court ordered recounting to stop after 34 days.(5) [4.46] So mail-in voting could be the big area of contention?Yes. Lingering concerns over COVID-19 are likely to boost voting by mail. This opens a whole can of risks, ranging from allegations of fraud, lost, uncounted or rejected ballots from voters unfamiliar to verification requirementsgiven the time it will take to count voting by mail, the election result may not be known on the daythe election is on 3 November, but the deadline for all states to certify voting results is 8 Decemberultimately, unless there is a clear win for either side, the result could be disputed and that could undermine financial markets performance.  [5.28] There’s finally been some sell-off among the big tech stocks. What do you believe is happening there?The so-called FAAMG (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft and Google) basket of technology stocks have sold off in aggregate by 16% from peak to trough so far in September(6)the biggest correction seen since the market downturn in Marchinvestors may be simply taking profits after such a strong run or getting apprehensive about increasingly demanding valuationsas the economy opens up again competitors will be able to recover at least some market share thus slowing FAAMG growth rates and reducing their relative attractivenessthe risk to equities is the size of the FAAMGs, which collectively account for around a quarter of S&P 500 market cap and around 8% of global GDP(7)a larger correction in the FAAMGs stocks could lead to a broader equity market correctionhowever, it is encouraging to see that the recent correction in the FAAMGs has had less of an impact on global equities in September than in late February and March. [6.37] What do you believe might happen if a vaccine is found and what is your outlook for markets?Even if an effective COVID-19 vaccine is found and used by the bulk of the population, related markets risks are likely to linger so we expect volatility to continuenonetheless, when viewed from a longer-term perspective, we believe the sheer scale of the unprecedented global financial stimulus and indeed hope of some medical progress against the virus leave sufficient room for some guarded optimismmoreover, the opening-up of the global economy is unleashing pent-up demandone example of where this is happening is in the important US residential sector, which reported its fastest pace of existing home sales in August for 14 years(8)confidence is returning to the US economy, as furloughed workers returns to jobs; the unemployment rate has now fallen to 8.4% currently from a peak of 14.7% back in April. This improving macro backdrop has broadened to the global economy and company earnings(9)the consensus now expects global forward Earnings Per Share growth of +15% expected over the next 12 months, a dramatic improvement from -2% just 6 months ago. As such, we see this fundamental pick-up in company earnings to support equity prices and so, we remain positive.(10)References:1-4 Real Clear Politics, data as at 24 September 20205, 8-10 Refinitiv Datastream6-7 Refinitiv Datastream, calculations by Smith & Williamson data as at 24 September 2020This episode was recorded on 30/09/2020Capital at risk.

Den britiske PM Boris Johnson blev mødt med en byge af kritiske spørgsmål, da han i dag skulle forsvare, hvorfor regeringen fremsætter et lovforslag, der vil ændre i skilsmisseaftalen mellem EU og Storbritannien, i strid med international lov. Vi ser på, hvad det er, den britiske regering vil. Alle vil gerne have grøn energi, men når den grønne energi ødelægger udsigten, bliver der problemer. Sådan er det bl.a. på Ærø, hvor en gruppe beboere har samlet sig i modstand mod et stort solcelleanlæg. Vi har besøgt Ærø og taler med øens borgmester. Og vi taler også med en professor i energiplanlægning om, hvor og hvordan solceller bedst placeres. Norges regering har besluttet at hente 50 flygtninge ud af Moria-lejren på den græske ø Lesbos. Det drejer sig om familier, og beslutningen kommer som konsekvens af de seneste dages begivenheder, hvor de op mod 13.000 flygtninge pga. coronatilfælde er blevet spærret inde i lejren. Senest har flygtningelejren, der er Europas største og drevet af EU, i nat været hærget af brande. Vi taler med to EU-parlamentarikere om situationen i lejren. Solveig Bjørnestad og Brita Kvist er dagens værter. Redaktør: Birgitte Gadegaard. www.dr.dk/orientering

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is a "fighter" who will be back at the helm to lead the country through the coronavirus pandemic, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab says.Raab said the Prime Minister - who is in intensive care with coronavirus - remained "in good spirits" and had not received any mechanical ventilation but has had "standard oxygen treatment".Speaking at today's Downing Street briefing Raab added: "He's not just the Prime Minister, he's not just our boss, he is also a colleague and he is also our friend. All of our thoughts and prayers are with the Prime Minister at this time."It comes as the curve of new coronavirus cases in the UK could be flattening, Sir Patrick Vallance, the chief scientific advisor has said.The number of new hospitalisations has seen a "steady increase" indicating it could be "flattening off".The death toll in the UK reached 6159 today, after 786 more people died in hospital after testing positive for the coronavirus, the Department of Health has said.If Johnson's condition changed, the Government would make an official statement, Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove said."He's not on a ventilator no," Gove told LBC radio. "The Prime Minister has received some oxygen support and he is kept under, of course, close supervision."Gove admitted Johnson's intensive care battle was "truly frightening" and said ministers were "praying" for his swift recovery.Johnson was moved to ICU at St Thomas' Hospital in central London and given oxygen after his health deteriorated sharply over just two hours, leaving doctors fearing he will need a ventilator.The 55-year-old was transferred to intensive care at 6am (NZT) yesterday because of breathing difficulties - forcing him to "deputise" Raab to take the reins of government.In a round of broadcast interviews in the UK, Gove said Johnson was getting the "best care"."As we speak the PM is in intensive care being looked after by his medical team receiving the very, very best care from the team in St Thomas' and our hopes and prayers are with him and with his family," he told BBC Breakfast.He said Johnson's plight should demonstrate the need to follow social distancing rules, as the virus "has a malevolence that is truly frightening".Gove played down concerns that the Government will be paralysed with the leader out of action, insisting that Johnson had already been on a "stripped back diary" for days and "Cabinet is the supreme decision-making body".However, Gove dodged questions about whether Raab has been given crucial national security responsibilities such as control of the nuclear launch codes and military authority.The Queen is being kept informed about Johnson's condition, while Raab is chairing a meeting of the government coronavirus task force this morning.Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump revealed he has offered to send Johnson experimental drugs to treat his coronavirus."I've asked two of the leading companies ... They've come with the solutions and just have done incredible jobs – and I've asked him to contact London immediately," Trump said."The London office has whatever they need. We'll see if we can be of help. We've contacted all of Boris' doctors, and we'll see what is going to take place, but they are ready to go."The PM's sharp downturn came 11 days after he first suffered coronavirus symptoms and went into isolation. He looked increasingly unwell when glimpsed in public and in "selfie" videos posted on social media, and ministers were then shocked by his grim appearance at a Zoom conference on Sunday.Downing Street sources confirmed Johnson is not yet on a ventilator - but was moved to intensive care to be near one if needed. Some medical experts forecasting this course of action is now "very likely".Two thirds of patients in intensive care with coronavirus are sedated and put on a ventilator within 24 hours of arriving as the illness attacks their lungs.But last night one doctor told The Times Johnson w...

His office says he's receiving oxygen treatment but isn't on a ventilator, and he doesn't have pneumonia.

This is Not Over. Everyone Just Stay Calm. There is so much conflicting information out there, it's hard to keep it all straight. Luke and Tim provide their personal expertise and opinions on the conflicting reports on the severity of the world's sickness. First, New York City Health Commissioner said there is no reason for young, healthy people to miss the city's upcoming parade DESPITE the fact that the US now leads the world in confirmed cases with NYC as the epicenter. Next, as many have already heard, PM Boris Johnson tested positive, and Former Labor Prime Minister Gordon Brown called for Global Government. Globalization much? Italy hasn't yet reached its peak, and Spain - where the country valued tourist money above a global health concern - reported 769 sickness deaths in a single day. Experts are saying the virus is likely to cause 81k deaths in the United States within the next four months. De Blasio says New York could stay closed until late May – Also suspects half of NYC's population will be infected at some point. The Surgeon General, who did lie about the need for masks, says the pandemic will extend beyond Labor Day. Dr Fauci continues cold war with Trump by casting doubt on Trump's goal of reopening the country by Easter. Trump claims CV is less infectious than he thought – Trump says people should prepare to go back to work within the next few days. Cell Phone Heat Map – researchers showed how people were traveling after the Florida Spring breakers left. Overlaying the maps of those spring breakers' travel with the maps of the virus spread shows correlation. New Orleans is likely to become the next outbreak epicenter due to Mardis Gras and spring breakers. Though New York City is hit most severely. We shouldn't be rushing to make major decisions. Everything is going to be okay, if we all just take a minute and use logic. What do you guys think? The Fed's Cure is Worse Than the Disease For more on the social and political aspects of what's happening with the illness right now, please see our other video: "This Is Not Over. Everyone Just Stay Calm". In this video, Luke and Tim dive straight into the day's economic news, and WOW are they animated today!!!! Topics Include: * The Fed's Balance Sheet Tops $5 Trillion * A plug for our good friend, John Sneisen – The Economic Truth, whose website is the most up-to-date of anyone we know about. * Zero Hedge – Fall of the Economy * There is No Gold! * Most Photographed Man on Wall Street Peter Tuchman has Virus * Prophylactic Shortage * Toilet paper and condoms are the currencies of the future. * and so much more!

This week, Russia mania has taken over the UK General Election agenda, as both parties revert to hurling ‘pro-Kremlin’ accusations at each other in an attempt to extract the last remaining drops of political capital from an increasingly dilapidated Russiagate narrative. Among the items being thrown in this cross-bench brawl is the accusation by Labour MPs that PM Boris Johnson is intentionally suppressing a new report by Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee (ISC) on alleged ‘Russian interference‘ in British politics, and specifically in the Brexit referendum. Interestingly, one of the report’s star witnesses is none other than the infamous Christopher Steele from the notorious UK-based private intelligence firm, Orbis. On Wednesday Nov. 6th, RT International spoke with 21WIRE editor Patrick Henningsen about the ridiculous political circus that’s unfolding, as opponents ramp-up old Skripal and ‘antisemitism’ smears against Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, and also why both parties might prefer to obscure this new ‘Russia’ report due to its lack of substance.

In a major blow to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Britain's highest court has ruled that his decision to suspend Parliament for five weeks in the crucial countdown to the country's Brexit deadline was illegal.The unanimous, strongly worded Supreme Court judgment on Tuesday declared Johnson's order to suspend Parliament "void and of no effect." The court found that Johnson's suspension had the effect of limiting debate by lawmakers on Britain's impending departure from the European Union in violation of Parliament's constitutional role.The landmark decision was quickly criticised by Johnson and prompted calls for him to quit from opposition leaders. The Conservative prime minister and Parliament have been at odds since he took power in July with the goal of taking Britain out of the EU on Oct. 31 with or without a divorce deal.Johnson vowed Tuesday that he will not resign and was flying back to London from New York overnight. Parliament resumes Wednesday.

TRT World’s Daily News Brief for Wednesday, September 18: *)Israel's leading candidates fail to secure majority Exit polls in Israel suggest the country's second general election this year is too close to call. Neither Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud Party nor his closest rival, Benny Gantz's Blue and White Party, managed to secure a ruling majority. Depending on the final results, the leading candidate will seek political support in forming a coalition government to lead the country. *)Taliban says “doors are open” for talks with US The Taliban has said its “doors are open” should the US want to resume peace talks in the future. Speaking with the BBC, Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, the Taliban’s chief negotiator, said that negotiations are the only way forward. Donald Trump recently said peace talks are "dead" a day after two separate Taliban suicide bombings killed at least 48 and wounded 80 others in Afghanistan. *)Drama set to continue at top UK court over Brexit case The highest court in the UK will decide whether the suspension of the British parliament was unlawful. PM Boris Johnson is accused of closing down parliament for five weeks to stop his Brexit plans from being derailed. Johnson will take the UK out of the EU on October 31 with or without a deal despite legislation requiring him to ask the EU for an extension. *)New York state ban on flavoured e-cigarettes given final approval New York becomes the second US state after Michigan to ban the sale of flavoured e-cigarettes. This comes after a seventh person died in the US from lung-related illness caused by vaping. Hundreds more are suffering from the illness and the government is determined to ban it countrywide. And finally, *)Surprise rescue of Jamaica’s coral reefs shows nature can heal The coral reefs of Jamaica are getting a new lease on life. Over the years, 85 percent of the country’s reefs had been lost to overfishing, pollution and hurricanes. Marine biologists stepped in and placed coral in special sanctuaries, while fishermen were convinced to change their habits. As a result, more than a dozen coral nurseries and fish havens have now flourished.

*)Report on UK leaving EU without deal casts a dark shadow The UK could face food and medicine shortages, as well as public disorder, if it leaves the EU without a deal. This was the warning made in a newly released government document outlining the worst-case scenario of a no-deal Brexit. The release of the Yellowhammer report comes after a Scottish court ruled PM Boris Johnson's decision to suspend parliament was unlawful. *)Trump gets big immigration policy win US Supreme Court handed Donald Trump a decisive win over his policy on illegal immigration. The court ruled that people coming to the US must claim asylum before arriving at the border. Legal challenges against the decision continue, but the ruling can now be enforced nationwide. *)UN report slams US, Syrian and Russia air raids in Syria Air strikes carried out by the US-led coalition, the Assad regime and Russia in Syria may amount to war crimes, according to the UN. In a new report, the UN highlights how hostilities forced mass migration and raised the number of displaced Syrians to about 13 million. *)2,500 still missing in Bahamas Emergency services in the Bahamas say around 2,500 people are still missing in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian. Dorian slammed into the island nation more than a week ago, killing at least 50. Rescue teams say more than 5,500 people were evacuated from Grand Bahama and Abaco islands. *)New planet discovery could mean we’re not alone And finally, To infinity and beyond! Scientists have discovered a new habitable planet beyond the solar system. The planet, called K2-18B, has water in its atmosphere and could be home to alien life. But the planet is about 111 light-years away from earth, so we probably won’t be going there anytime soon.
