posted by Hannity Staff - 4.20.20

The American oil industry continued to reel during the Coronavirus pandemic Monday, with future indicators dropping approximately 70% and sending prices under $5 per barrel.

“U.S. crude prices plunged to their lowest level in history as traders continue to fret over a slump in demand due to the coronavirus pandemic. The price of the nearest oil futures contract, which expires Tuesday, was the hardest hit, detaching from later month futures contracts with a drop of more than 50%. This suggests that some believe there could be a recovery later in the year,” reports CNBC.

West Texas Intermediate crude for May delivery tanked 76%, or $13.96, to $4.31 per barrel, its lowest level on record. Meanwhile international benchmark, Brent crude, which has already rolled to the June contract, traded 5.6% lower at $26.49 per barrel. The June WTI contract, which expires on May 19, fell about 10% to $22.54 per barrel. The July contract was roughly 5% lower at $28 per barrel,” adds the website.

A NEW LOW: MSNBC Analyst Claims Trump’s Coronavirus Response Constitutes ‘Involuntary Manslaughter’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.07.20

MSNBC Legal Analyst Glenn Kirschner left millions of users on social media scratching their heads this week; baselessly asserting President Trump’s Coronavirus response could be prosecuted for “involuntary manslaughter.”

“Trump’s conduct easily satisfies all 3 elements of involuntary manslaughter. In fact, his gross negligence is beginning to look more like conduct evincing a ‘conscious disregard of an extreme risk of death/serious bodily injury = the standard for depraved heart/2nd degree murder,’” he posted on Twitter.

 

Ohio Democratic State Rep. Tavia Galonski took her party’s war against the White House to a new level this week; saying the President should be charged for “crimes against humanity” over his Coronavirus press briefings.

“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow. Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one,” posted the legislator on social media.

 

“State Rep. Tavia Galonski tweeted Sunday after President Trump spoke about hydroxychloroquine at his daily press briefing. The drug, normally used to treat malaria, is one of several that the president has pointed to as showing promise in the fight against COVID-19, but its effectiveness has been a subject of debate,” reports Fox News.
