Well, I just read a serious article about a piece of human excrement. The article delves deeper into the story behind the story on the supposed COVID 19 relief actions and it involves the president’s son-in-law. I thought I had seen some callous individuals before, but Jared Kushner takes the cake hands down. The article tells the story of Jared’s true character.
Although well written and informative, reading the article was like reading War And Peace. I understand where the author was coming from. It would be hard not to tell the whole story within the story. I will try to blunder through as best as I can. Now the setting for this is some seven weeks after Donald came on TV and lied to us about the dangers of COVID 19. Although Mike Pence had his ad-lib fairy tales task force Jared set up a secret backchannel shadow task force. I am sure everyone with some semblance of a brain will remember Jared’s the government’s stockpile belongs to them not the American people. This disturbed me at the time and now it totally inflames me. Just who the hell do they think paid for that stuff?!
It wasn’t them because they spend fortunes so they don’t pay taxes. Now, while hospital staff was pleading for supplies and some nurses were wearing trash bags because they had run out of gowns, old Jared was meeting with his goon squad. And yes, it was his goon squad. Although there were many fine people employed in the chain of command, Jared brought in his own private crew who coincidentally had all signed non-disclosure agreements. They immediately set about to take care of “red states”, leaving the “blue states” on their own. That is pretty much a direct quote from someone who was there.
At a meeting, several companies and individuals in the industry met to address the best ways to handle this. It soon became apparent that they were overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of this pandemic. People were trying to come up with ways to help. They received many commitments from industry leaders. GM offered to set up a production line dedicated to making ventilators. The group agreed to return the next day and go to the White House and meet with Jared and his father-in-law. They were going to make the case for the Defense Production Act. I had mentioned this before. This act allows the government to tell manufacturers that they need certain things made and they need it now. It takes care of work orders and production contracts. It sets up how much the government wants and sets a price on the finished product.
So, at this meeting, Jared sat at the head of the table. No Trump. Right up front, Jared said that the federal government was not going to lead this debacle. It was up to the states to figure out what they were going to do. One of the people said that states were in a bidding war over the available products and were driving up prices. Jared’s response was ‘Free markets will solve this.’ That is not the responsibility of the government. The same person said that Andrew Cuomo was begging for supplies and there were none available. ‘That’s CNN bullshit they lie’, Jared snapped back. According to another person Jared said Cuomo didn’t pound the phone hard enough to get PPE. His people are going to suffer and that’s their problem. Nice guy this Jared. That’s when another attendee said, we are so screwed. The group brought up the Defense Production Act telling Jared that you need to make a policy change. Jared openly argued with this calling for free markets. He told the group that they only understood how entrepreneurship works. That you have no idea how government works. (I would interject here that neither does Jared. Just saying.)
Jared won praise from many people obviously trying to suck up. About a week after this Trump finally invoked the Defense Production Act but didn’t do anything with it. As for what happened with Jared’s task force one person said that they had industry experts gathered and ready to go on a comprehensive plan to test, contact trace, and fight the disease. And guess what? It went nowhere. According to a member of this group Jared had no real purpose for fighting this pandemic because it was targeting mainly “blue states”.
There’s an old saying that would apply here. Just bend over and kiss your ass goodbye.
And yes, they finally came up with a testing and tracing plan but since the disease was primarily hitting “blue states” they could hold off on this and then blame Democrat Governors for mishandling the outbreak. This only goes to show that there was a plan in place to help the American people and it was thrown out the window. That leaves us with a deadly statistic. We are near 200,000 deaths. We have only 4% of the world’s population but we own 20% of the world’s deaths.
There is more to this story. But right now I feel the need to go outside and sit awhile. If you get too deep into the putrid mess that the Trump caravan spews, it will scar you. I do fervently hope that we vote this slimebag out of office. I also just saw that Ms. Ginsburg just died. And true to their disrespectful form, the Republicans are blowing up the internet on how they are going to replace her. Ms. Ginsburg’s passing saddens me because she was a feisty older lady and never gave up. She reminds me of my mother, who although still alive has gotten wrapped up in a family squabble over money. I have found that the more money people have the more they want. I totally get Scrooge. Others in my family would be sitting playing with this crap. But that is a personal problem that I live with. Sorry to see a great lady pass on.
