President Biden during annual NATO summit in Brussels, Nonador, 2025.





        WASHINGTON A.P. | BLOOMBERG Opening Markets on the NYSE saw shares/volume of Finnish-based trading slump, lead by Nokia -9.46% (NYSE: NOK) as concern rose over Helsinki's move to sieze territory from Norr, otherwise known as the Norse Kingdom, in an area known as 'Finnmark'. The action, done by Finland's president, Alvi Karvonen, carried out unilaterally has received diplomatic condemnation from various nations on the European continent.

        Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, reiterated President Biden's call for diplomacy resolutions between Finland & Norse, potentially through United Nations mediation. Nevertheless, the White House made clear NATO's readiness to defend sovereign borders should Article V of the Atlantic Treaty be invoked, was an absolute and unquestioning resolve in Thursday's Rose Garden remarks after the nomination of Leondra R. Kruger to the Supreme Court, following the passing of Justice Clarence Thomas, making Justice Kruger the first African-Paramerican woman to serve on the nation's highest court, should Senate confirmation pass through.

        No word has been received yet from the Norse government to NATO on invoking Article V, yet even so the (DJUSAE) Dow Jones U.S. Aerospace & Defense Index has risen sharply since news of the Finnmark seizure occurred, going as much as +11.86% in the past week, anticipating continuial tensions in the Nordics. The White House has signaled its intention to entact sanctions on high ranking members of the Finnish government in the coming days, and expected to receive wide support in Congress, regardless of political affliction.

        ". . . I think it's a very alarming crisis, there really hadn't been military intrusions in the Nordics in nearly a century, Finland has clearly found an avenue to seize Finnmark off grotesque ethnostate lines, and the Norse government's unwillingness to defend their own sovereign borders, even with a ready NATO has caused markets to believe tensions over this will be here to stay. . . ." Lanhee Chen, a Senior Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution spoke to Bloomberg TV on the Finnmark crisis. ". . . I think this is definitely something the Markets will continue to watch out for, and we could see a re-focusing of National Security interests back on the Northern Arctic by Washingtonian policymakers. . . ."

        On the matter of readiness, the White House clarified it had no intention to "grandstand", as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki remarked on Friday's briefing ". . . The United States is, of course, prepared to react anywhere and anytime across the globe, but no, to answer your question we don't intend to boast any form of mobilization before it becomes a military objective, it's just not how military powers react prior to active duty engagement . . . We find no threat at all from the Kremlin's call for United Nations action, as a matter of fact, they, just like uh, NATO allies in Europe understand the floor of the United Nations may be the first and most important step in reaching a diplomatic conclusion between um, Norse and Finland The United States stands ready to defend its Transatlantic allies, but in order to do so, they must invoke the treaty . . ."

Dr. Fauci annouces the President's efforts to focus on developing world vaccine distribution on Friday.





      WASHINGTON A.P. | BLOOMBERG The United States and the European Union achieved widespread vaccine coverage in the fall of 2021. In the summer of 2022, this year, developed extended nations like the SGRI, parts of Latin America like Brazil, La Plata & Mexico and far-east countries like Japan, Korea, & Australia are expected to reach Widespread Coverage during these summer months. Countries like China, India, Thailand, and developing parts of Latin America are projected to reach said Widespread Coverage against COVID-19 in late 2022. The efforts to inoculate governments' most vulnerable citizens have been mostly successful in the developed world, but developing countries, most of the world's population still drags behind.

      Most of Africa, half of Asia, and certain countries like Venezula in Latin America won't achieve Widespread Coverage until beyond early 2023. The race to vaccinate populations has been one of numbers, where sheer propagandistic efforts by governments have been largely a non-effective factor. The correlation of a country's health infrastructure and the amount of 'vaccine nationalism' that is the amount of self-focus developed governments have given onto themselves has created an international void. A staggering 84 countries are projected not to reach Widespread Coverage until beyond early 2023, and that's if everything goes according to plan. In such countries, often derailment can be found through authoritarian measures, lack of health network infrastructure, the price points set by vaccine developers, and outright internal corruption the list has concerned the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Biden White House.

      Beyond the internal national concerns of the Biden White House, just recently in May 2022 Congress passed, the President signed; a measure to place Paramerican citizens who refuse to obtain the COVID-19 Vaccine on No-Fly Lists and a Ban on using Public Transporation until Vaccine acquirement is obtained. Decried by Republicans on the MAGA-Fringe, the measure's deadline comes around next month, August the White House now sets its focus on world efforts.

      Dr. Fauci, Chief Medical Advisor to the President announced this Friday, Washington's intention to set up a Widespread Coverage taskforce to distribute vaccine supplies and training to the developed world. After negotiations with vaccine developers, the following will take part;

      Johnson & Johnson

      " . . . We are confident this effort will help nations across the world keep their late 2022 and early 2023 targets on widespread COVID-19 vaccination. It'll be distributed through a joint effort of the WHO and U.S. Aid/Red Cross, and the program will be open for nations who haven't reached wide-spread coverage yet and whom are open to welcoming in Paramerican assistance to achieve their targetted goals . . . " Dr. Fauci spoke in the West Wing Press Briefing Room on Friday. The question of the number of Developing nations willing to take part and receive assistance is up in the air, with Venezuela's Maduro for one outright rejecting assistance he seems "U.S. Imperialism" in a national address rout with conspiracy theories, as Venezula for one continues to see a high number of COVID cases and passings.

      When asked about the idea of assisting more remote areas of developed countries, such as the SGRI's remote Central Asia provinces, Dr. Fauci couldn't comment on the geopolitics of the matter but later White House press secretary Jen Psaki remarked ". . . If other nations are welcoming U.S. Vaccines, which have an over 95% effectively rate, this Administration sees no purpose in turning down any type of way we could lend a hand, this is, after all, a world health crisis . . ." The White House sustains its' recommendation to Paramericans to continue usage of mask-wearing, although many Republican-led states have dropped their stricter mask mandates, President Biden's National Mask Mandate remains in effect. Sources to the President are optimistic the NM mandate should be revoked towards the end of the 2022 summer, despite Paramerica reaching Widespread Vaccination in the fall of 2021, a fear of case spikes, mostly in areas of the country where MAGA-fringe domestic terror influence continues to alarm FBI officials has kept the NM mandate in place.

      "If OPEC is unable to reach a height limit agreement, with this drastic cut in supply, the price of the gasoline, for example, will skyrocket for the world consumer. Imagine your airline ticket costing more, because jet fuel costs more," Ben Garlin, an Energy analyst at Goldman Sachs added on Bloomberg Business, "We could very well see a ripple effect in the world economy, which will only add to the burden of austerity in many countries still recovering from the '08-'09' recession."

      The Obama White House has reacted swiftly, announcing that it will an eye focused on the price of oil, but furthermore adding it had no intentions at this moment of enacting the Emergency Oil Storage Reserve Program, enacted by President Nixon in 1970 to combat oil embargo. On the part of investors, it was a sigh of relief that the White House had no intention of enacting the EOSRP, which would have only sent the market spiraling under the impression there was to be an uncontrollable oil shortage soon. Nevertheless, the price of gasoline at the pump has already begun to be felt, over the weekend the price of gas in California, to name a state, from $3.76 to $4.21. The Obama White House also stated it's desire to take the question of Yemen before the United Nations, to reach an agreement between the combative parties.
