An exhaustive list of intriguing and unsolved disappearances
2020.09.30 13:13 User18940505An exhaustive list of intriguing and unsolved disappearances
So I’m back! I just finished editing my previous post, adding those which you guys suggested and removing those that seem to have been solved. This will most likely be the case here, as my research is not wholly up to date. This is a bit of a broader topic, since a disappearance does not necessarily allude to a crime. As far as I am aware, the majority of these cases have suspicious circumstances. Hope you find this interesting! Like the previous post, a lot of these cases are in chronological order, but not all. They are accurately categorised into their respective decades, however.

As hospitals scramble for protective equipment, even federal agencies trying to donate their own stashes have been stymied by red tape and a lack of cooperation from FEMA. We’re sure President Trump will get right on that! As soon as he’s done berating and firing everyone who might point out he has not gotten right on that.
Trump has removed Glenn Fine, the acting inspector general for the Pentagon, from his post as chairman of the panel overseeing $2 trillion in coronavirus spending. This is exactly what one does when one is planning to spend relief money as Congress intended. It’s the latest move in Trump’s ongoing purge of independent oversight, which kicked off on Friday when he fired Michael Atkinson for alerting Congress about the whistleblower complaint that led to his impeachment. Trump has also started lashing out at Health and Human Services Inspector General Christi Grimm, who had the audacity to release a report detailing testing delays and supply shortages at hospitals.
In the latest installment of They Knew And Didn’t Tell You, it turns out they really fucking knew. Peter Navarro, Trump’s flunky trade advisor, circulated a memo in late January warning top Trump administration officials that a coronavirus crisis in the U.S. could cost trillions of dollars and endanger millions of lives. Trump was downplaying the virus when that memo went around, and was still at it when Navarro sent a second memo on February 23, warning of an “increasing probability of a full-blown COVID-19 pandemic that could infect as many as 100 million Americans, with a loss of life of as many as 1.2 million souls.”
CDC Director Robert Redfield said on Monday that because a majority of Americans are taking social distancing seriously, the national death toll is likely to be “much, much, much, much lower than would have been predicted by the models.” Other officials, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, haven’t projected quite the same optimism—Fauci has argued it’s a “false statement” to say that the outbreak is under control, and stressed that it could sweep through the country again this fall. There’s also the issue of many COVID-19 deaths going uncounted, including the untold number of New York residents who have died at home in recent days, likely from the virus.
In the most gobsmacking twist of the day, Trump has a financial link to the drugs he’s been pushing.
Trump’s three family trusts all have investments in a mutual fund whose largest holding is Sanofi, a French drug company that manufactures hydroxychloroquine. Those investments are tiny for a billionaire, but they’re also just what Trump chose to disclose back in 2019. We still don’t know if Trump or his allies stand to profit, or if he’s hyping an unproven drug on the blind hope that it gets him re-elected. Fortunately, all of these possible motives are also strong medical justifications.
Some coronavirus profiteering looks more clear-cut: Sen. David Purdue (R-GA) is now the second Georgia senator we must yell at to resign, having bought stock in a company that produces personal protective equipment on January 24, the same day he received a classified briefing on the coronavirus. Georgia, honey...throw the whole Senate delegation away.
To sum up: The Trump administration was explicitly warned of a “full-blown pandemic” at the same moment that Trump was calling COVID-19 a completely contained flu, and Trump’s priorities at the peak of said pandemic have been to dismantle oversight and promote a drug for no scientific reason, and hawk unproven therapeutics in market-moving ways. That all seems like stuff every voter should know.

Under The Radar
Wisconsin proceeded with its terrifying in-person election after Republicans and the U.S. Supreme Court blocked all efforts to let as many people as possible vote from the safety of their homes. Some voters were forced to wait in five-hour lines, in a state that’s been under a shelter-in-place order since March 25, and has over 2,440 confirmed coronavirus cases. There were only five polling places open in heavily-Democratic Milwaukee, down from the usual 180. Waukesha, with a population of over 70,000, had only one polling location. Many Wisconsinites who requested absentee ballots never received them, and thanks to the Supreme Court, many of the completed absentee ballots won’t be counted.At least one infected voter had to seek out someone who had already recovered from the virus to witness his absentee ballot signature. In the words of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairman Ben Wikler, “If you think that this is what should be happening today, you’re either uninformed about coronavirus, a nihilistic partisan, or a Republican-appointed Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.” The way to make sure this doesn’t happen again, especially on a national scale in November, is for congressional Democrats to ensure that vote-by-mail and other voter protection measures make it into the next coronavirus recovery package. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has released a plan detailing what those provisions should look like, and we hope every Democrat gets behind it.
Black communities across the country have been hit disproportionately hard by COVID-19. The data is still limited, and most cities and states aren’t reporting infection and death toll numbers by race. But the preliminary statistics show a disturbing if unsurprising trend: In Illinois, 43 percent of people who have died from the virus and 28 percent of those who have tested positive are African American, a group that makes up 15 percent of the state’s population. Black people make up one third of Louisiana’s population, but represent about 70 percent of the state’s deaths. Racial infection-rate discrepancies are showing up in Michigan, North and South Carolina, Connecticut, and Las Vegas, NV, too. That may be partially attributable to familiar racial biases in health-care: To take just one example, doctors appear to be less likely to refer African-American patients with COVID-19 symptoms for testing. The socioeconomic disparities that contribute to high incidence of medical risk factors in the African-American population, and lower black Americans’ life expectancies across the board, are also likely a factor, as is the fact that African Americans disproportionately comprise the work force that isn’t able to work from home.

More warnings ignored
On March 6, President Trump said the coronavirus crisis was “an unforeseen problem” that “came out of nowhere.” On March 11: "We're having to fix a problem that, four weeks ago, nobody ever thought would be a problem.” Trump insisted on March 19 that “nobody knew there would be a pandemic or epidemic of this proportion. Nobody has ever seen anything like this before. ... Nobody ever thought of numbers like this." As we saw in last week’s round-up, this is not true. Trump’s administration ignored recurring warnings that spanned his entire time in office and originated from varied sectors. This week, we learned of even more instances of overlooked and rejected alarm signals. 2003-2015: As evidence that part of the government’s failure to respond to the coronavirus outbreak is systemic, there were at least 10 government reports on ventilator shortages that pre-date the Trump administration. In 2003, the Government Accountability Office warned that “few hospitals have adequate medical equipment, such as the ventilators that are often needed for respiratory infections ... to handle the large increases in the number of patients that may result” from an infectious disease outbreak.” In 2015, DHS and CDC modeled a scenario in which a high severity influenza outbreak would “need approximately 35,000 to 60,500 additional ventilators, averting a pandemic total 178,000 to 308,000 deaths." 2017: The Defense Department created a pandemic influenza response plan that specifically referenced the possibility of a dangerous coronavirus outbreak. The plan foresaw the medical supply shortages we’re now facing: “Competition for, and scarcity of resources will include…non-pharmaceutical MCM [Medical Countermeasures] (e.g., ventilators, devices, personal protective equipment such as face masks and gloves), medical equipment, and logistical support. This will have a significant impact on the availability of the global workforce.” June 2017: A study by the CDC advised public health agencies to “stockpile critical medical resources,” warning that the Strategic National Stockpile “might not suffice to meet demand during a severe public health emergency.” On Wednesday, DHS officials said the emergency stockpile was “nearly exhausted” of medical supplies like masks and gloves. While there are reportedly about 9,500 ventilators in the stockpile (see more below), governors and experts predict the nation will need tens of thousands more in order to keep infected patients alive and breathing. 2019: Last fall, the White House Council of Economic Advisers published a report estimating the health and economic losses associated with a potential influenza pandemic. In the most serious scenario, the report determined that over half a million people could die from a pandemic in America and warned that “healthy people might avoid work and normal social interactions... incapacitating a large fraction of the population.” Critically, the report cautions against conflating the seasonal flu with a pandemic disease, which is exactly what Trump did as the coronavirus spread across the country.
Trump tweet on March 9: "So last year 37,000 Americans died from the common Flu. It averages between 27,000 and 70,000 per year. Nothing is shut down, life & the economy go on. At this moment there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths. Think about that!”
Mid-January 2020: At a March 30 House Oversight Committee briefing, “HHS admitted that the Department knew as early as mid-January based on 2015 models that the United States would not have enough N95 respirator masks to respond to an infectious disease outbreak.” January and February 2020: National security adviser Robert C. O’Brien and his deputy, Matthew Pottinger, were pushing for “strong action” earlier than others in the administration. Pottinger, who lived in China during the SARS crisis, knew that the Chinese government was underplaying the outbreak in their country and, with O’Brien, “repeatedly pressed other top [U.S.] officials to take the threat more seriously.” According to the Washington Post, then-acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin were among the officials who were not convinced. Feb. 3, 2020: The Daily Beast reported: “An unclassified briefing document on the novel coronavirus prepared on Feb. 3 by U.S. Army-North projected that ‘between 80,000 and 150,000 could die.’ ...if the White House had heeded an Army warning nearly two months ago, it might have prompted earlier action to prevent an outbreak that threatens to kill more Americans than two to four Vietnam Wars.” Feb. 5, 2020: Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar asked the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for $2 billion to buy respirator masks and other supplies for the depleted Strategic National Stockpile. The request turned into a “shouting match” on Feb. 5 between Azar and an OMB official, who alleged that Azar improperly lobbied Congress for money for the stockpile. The White House cut the $2 billion down to just $500 million in the final budget request sent to Congress.
More details: In February 2019, the White House was planning for a presidential executive order on preparing for a potential flu pandemic. HHS requested a more than $11 billion investment over 10 years for [the stockpile]...some of those funds would go toward “better protective devices, manufactured faster.” But the executive order issued by Trump in September 2019 did not include that money.
Feb. 5, 2020: While Azar was trying to secure funding via the White House OMB, he was simultaneously denying additional funding from Congress. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted on Feb. 5 about a coronavirus briefing he had attended, saying “Notably, no request for ANY emergency funding, which is a big mistake. Local health systems need supplies, training, screening staff etc. And they need it now.” In an interview last week, Murphy explained that numerous lawmakers demanded to know why the administration wasn’t asking Congress for funding for medical supplies. “Their position was that this wasn’t the moment to start panicking, staffing up and buying supplies,” Murphy continued.
More details from WaPo: “Crucially, several lawmakers were already telling administration officials that ‘our local public health systems were fundamentally just not ready,’ Murphy told me. ‘States were beginning to grapple with some of the most thorny questions, and it was clear the administration didn’t understand the scope of what was going to be necessary.’”
Yahoo News: “Had we appropriated money in February to start buying re-agent, we would be in a position to do many more tests today than we are,” Murphy said. ”It was just so clear to us that the administration didn't think this was going to be a problem. We begged them in that meeting to request emergency funding from the Congress and they told us ... that they had everything that they needed on hand, which was false.”
Late February: The Daily Beast reported: “A high-ranking federal official in late February warned that the United States needed to plan for not having enough personal protective equipment for medical workers as they began to battle the novel coronavirus, according to internal emails obtained by Kaiser Health News.”
Testing still an obstacle
On March 10, Vice President and leader of the coronavirus task force Mike Pence told the country that “over a million tests have been distributed” and promised "more than 4 million more tests" would be available across the country by the end of that week. Three days later, on March 13, Trump said we would have “1.4 million tests” within the following week “and 5 million within a month.” However, at the end of March, the COVID Tracking Project reported only 964,865 total tests had been conducted, including available data from private labs. This number is far short of the promises made by the White House. When asked about the discrepancies last month, Trump said: “I cannot explain the gap. I’m hearing very good things on the ground.” Just days ago, on a conference call with Trump and other governors, Gov. Steve Bullock (Montana) told the president that his state doesn’t have enough tests to trace the spread of the virus (audio). “Literally we are one day away, if we don’t get test kits from the C.D.C., that we wouldn’t be able to do testing in Montana,” Bullock said. “I haven’t heard about testing in weeks...I haven’t heard about testing being a problem,” Trump responded, also repeating the inaccurate claim that “We’ve tested more now than any nation in the world.”
Fact check: The U.S. has tested only 1 in 366 people. South Korea has tested 1 in every 124 people.
Bullock’s complaint that states were struggling with a lack of testing kits was backed up by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, who told NPR that Trump’s claim that states have adequate testing supplies is “just not true,” adding that “no state has enough testing.” Washington Gov. Jay Inslee told CNN last week that his state has “a desperate need for the testing kits” and lacks “the materials to take the test itself… things as simple as the swabs.”
Reminder: Washington scientists wanted to test for the coronavirus in January, when the first U.S. case was confirmed (in a man who arrived from Wuhan). But the FDA prevented local labs from performing the tests. A professor at the University of Washington became exasperated mid-February trying to get approval, saying “This virus is faster than the F.D.A.” On Feb. 25, a Seattle team began testing without government approval, confirming the first instance of community-transmission of COVID-19 in the nation. “It must have been here this entire time,” Dr. Chu recalled thinking with dread. “It’s just everywhere already.”
There is evidence to suggest that the federal government has shipped out more tests than the COVID Tracking Project reports. CNN and The Atlantic have reported that commercial labs have a huge backlog of coronavirus tests to process. These pending results would not be captured by the Tracking Project. For instance, New Jersey-based Quest Diagnostics had about 160,000 coronavirus test orders waiting to be processed on March 25 from across the country. California apparently has the largest backlog in its private labs, with over 57,400 people waiting for results at the end of March. Drive-through testing Another Trump promise that never materialized: During one of the corporate showcases masquerading as a coronavirus briefing, the president brought the executives of Target, Walgreens, Walmart, and CVS before the TV cameras to announce a network of drive-through COVID-19 testing sites across the country (video). Despite having a combined 26,400 U.S. stores, these four retailers have only opened four testing sites, none of which are open to the general public:
Walgreens and CVS have opened one site each, while Walmart last weekend opened two drive-through testing locations near Chicago. Target hasn’t opened any. Rite Aid, which joined the effort later, has opened one drive-through facility in Philadelphia.
Why is widespread testing important? Iceland, a country of just 360,000 people, has tested 5% of its population for coronavirus. A biopharma company has screened the wider population, not just those with symptoms, and found that around 50% of those who tested positive said they were asymptomatic. This is critical because it confirms that people without symptoms can spread the virus. Right now, in America, we’re only testing those with severe symptoms (and even then, some states are unable to test anyone except healthcare workers). Until we have the capacity to test asymptomatic people as well, we’ll never know who should be self-quarantining.
States plead for supplies
A prediction from the past I’d like to open this section with a quote from President Trump about his interactions with governors desperate for medical supplies for their states: “I want them to be appreciative. I don't want them to say things that aren't true. I want them to be appreciative. We've done a great job.” Later, Trump said he has told Pence not to call the Governor of Washington or the Governor of Michigan because “if they don’t treat you right, I don’t call.” Now, a quote from Stanford Law Professor Pamela Karlan during her testimony in the impeachment inquiry on Dec. 4, 2019: “What would you think if, when your governor asked the federal government for the disaster assistance that Congress has provided, the President responded, ‘I would like you to do us a favor. I’ll... send the disaster relief once you brand my opponent a criminal.’” Can we really say that the scenario we’re living through today is different from what Karlan predicted? ‘I would like you to do us a favor. I’ll send the coronavirus aid once you publicly praise me.’ Trump was impeached for holding aid hostage to his selfish, venal demands and Republicans refused to convict. Now, he is repeating the same behavior in the middle of a pandemic. Unequal distribution Some states seem to have better luck at getting supplies from the national stockpile than others. Occasionally these disparities occur along ideological lines, but just as often there seems to be no (visible) pattern to which states receive aid and which miss out. This leaves us with two equally disturbing conclusions: Either the federal government is playing favorites with life-saving medical supplies, or the federal government is too incompetent to fulfill basic orders from the states. One instance that piques suspicions of partisan bias: Florida, headed by Trump-ally Ron DeSantis, has received 100% of its requests with a third surplus shipment on the way. Meanwhile, Democratic-leaning Massachusetts has only gotten 17% of the personal protective equipment (PPE) it requested and Colorado, led by a Democratic governor, received “enough for only one full day of statewide operations.”
Officials in Florida have pointed to the close relationship between DeSantis and Trump as a helpful tool in shaping federal policy. The two speak almost daily… Trump will probably need the 29 electoral votes of his adopted homestead to win reelection… “The president knows Florida is so important for his reelection, so when DeSantis says that, it means a lot,” said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to be frank. “He pays close attention to what Florida wants.” (WaPo)
Yesterday, the House Oversight Committee released confirmation from DHS and FEMA that states are not receiving enough supplies from the stockpile - aside from Florida, apparently:
The Oversight Committee released documents suggesting dramatic shortfalls of equipment requested by states in FEMA's Region III, which includes Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware and Washington, D.C. Collectively, the states and D.C. sought 5.2 million respirator masks, but received less than 10 percent of their requests. And they received less than 1 percent of their request for 194 million pairs of gloves. A request for 15,000 body bags went unfulfilled as well.
To rebut evidence that the federal supply is not being used correctly, Jared Kushner, leader of a shadow task force, made the extraordinary, and inaccurate, claim that the federal stockpile “is supposed to be our stockpile, it’s not supposed to be states’ stockpiles that they then use.” The website (view archived version) for the Strategic National Stockpile clearly spells out the opposite: “When state, local, tribal, and territorial responders request federal assistance to support their response efforts, the stockpile ensures that the right medicines and supplies get to those who need them most during an emergency.” EDIT: After Kushner said this, the SNS website changed the definition of the stockpile, so it now says it exists just to supplement state supplies: “Many states have products stockpiled, as well.”
Kushner also repeatedly advised Trump in the early days of the outbreak that the media was exaggerating the threat. That Google website that Trump falsely announced was coming? That was Kushner, too. Meanwhile behind the scenes a Kushner family health insurance company (Oscar Health) built the website that was promised. A senior official described Kushner’s “shadow” task force as “a ‘frat party’ that descended from a U.F.O. and invaded the federal government.”
This basically sums up the danger Kushner is putting us all in: "when New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, said that the state would need 30,000 ventilators at the apex of the coronavirus outbreak, Kushner decided that Cuomo was being alarmist. 'I have all this data about I.C.U. capacity,' Kushner reportedly said. 'I’m doing my own projections, and I’ve gotten a lot smarter about this. New York doesn’t need all the ventilators.' (Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top expert on infectious diseases, has said he trusts Cuomo’s estimate.)"
eBay for supplies The President and the task force have directed states not to rely on the stockpile and to turn to the private sector instead. However, simultaneously the president has refused to take control of the supply chain, instead encouraging an eBay-like bidding war between itself, all 50 states, and private hospitals.
"It’s like being on eBay with 50 other states, bidding on a ventilator," a frustrated Gov. Andrew Cuomo, D-N.Y., said Tuesday morning, adding that the Federal Emergency Management Agency's bids are pushing the cost of medical supplies higher. "I mean, how inefficient. And then, FEMA gets involved! And FEMA starts bidding! And now FEMA is bidding on top of the 50 [states]. So FEMA is driving up the price. What sense does this make?" Elizabeth Warren: Trump told states they were on their own to purchase medical equipment, so that’s what MA tried to do. But then the federal government outbid MA at least 3 times – and reports show two of our orders were seized by federal authorities. This is unacceptable. MA requested supplies from the Strategic National Stockpile nearly a month ago. Only a fraction ever came. Without Trump’s full & consistent use of the DPA, state officials are still scrambling to find essential equipment but the federal govt has created a logistical black hole.
Defective equipment Even when the federal government has sent supplies to states, sometimes the materials are defective or simply not what’s needed.
After criticizing Trump’s response to the outbreak, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) was sent surgical masks instead of the 300,000 N95 masks the White House promised. “I can’t emphasize enough how much we need the federal government to step up and amplify the size of their PPE [personal protective equipment] deliveries to Illinois and frankly across the nation,” Pritzker said.
Last Saturday, California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) announced that “LA received 170 broken ventilators from the national stockpile,” the entire shipment. "Rather than complaining about it, rather than pointing fingers about it...We got a car and a truck, we had those 170 taken to a facility” to be refurbished, Newsom said.
Almost 6,000 masks that Montgomery County (AL) received from the national stockpile were rotted and had a 2010 expiration date, according to Christi Thornton, the local emergency management director. Thornton said they received a replacement shipment Wednesday.
I'm addressing the problems with ventilators in a separate section, because it is a uniquely expensive piece of medical equipment desperately needed across the country. First, there are not enough ventilators in the reserve for all the states. This is complicated by the fact that Trump and Pence do not believe states need as many machines as they’re requesting:
Officials in Illinois say they asked for 4,000 and got 450. New Jersey sought 2,300 and got 300. New Mexico has only 370. Virginia requested 350 ventilators but has not received any. The governor of Illinois asked Vice President Mike Pence for 4,000 ventilators this week and was told the state would not need that many. (NYT) Video: Trump told.Sean Hannity. ‘I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You know, you go into major hospitals sometimes, they’ll have two ventilators. And now all of a sudden they’re saying can we order 30K ventilators?’” Video: ABC News’s Jonathan Karl asked Trump if “everybody who needs one will be able to get a ventilator?” To which Trump responded, “Look, don’t be a cutie pie, okay? Nobody’s done what we’ve been able to do.”
Second, as Gov. Newsom discovered, many ventilators in the stockpile do not work. The New York Times reported that apart from the 9,500 Trump has spoken about being in the reserve, “an additional 2,109 lifesaving devices are unavailable after the contract to maintain the government’s stockpile lapsed late last summer, and a contracting dispute meant that a new firm did not begin its work until late January.” Presumably, Newsom did not receive 170 of the 2,109 that are out of commission, revealing that a certain percentage of the 9,500 ventilators do not work, either.
As White House officials have for the first time looked at a supply they had not thought about, they have discovered it is not only far smaller than what they need — it is also in constant need of maintenance.
Third, Trump is belatedly using the Defense Production Act (DPA) in a very limited fashion to compel one company, General Motors, to begin mass-producing ventilators… or is he? In a Politico interview, the president's top trade official, Peter Navarro, said the administration has not been able to verify whether GM has made any progress since the Defense Production Act was invoked Fourth, the confusion about ventilators exceeds just the use of the DPA. According to the House Oversight Committee, FEMA reported that most of the 100,000 ventilators promised by President Trump will not be available until late June at the earliest. Fifth, a ventilator manufacturer is negotiating with Jared Kushner to build complex and expensive ventilators when taxpayers have already paid $32.8 million for 10,000 low-cost, portable, easy-to-use ventilators that were never delivered. ProPublica’s investigation found that Health and Human Services has been “remarkably deferential” to the company, Royal Philips N.V., even during the pandemic when Philips has prioritized commercial sales over beginning the government’s order.
Had government officials insisted that Philips first produce the ventilators that taxpayers paid to design, the government could conceivably be distributing all 10,000 to hospitals now.
The Defense Production Act
“The government’s not supposed to be out there buying vast amounts of items and then shipping, we’re not a shipping clerk,” Trump said. “As with testing, the governors are supposed to be doing it.” A “shipping clerk” is exactly what is needed, though. The federal government could help by using the Defense Production Act (DPA) to procure resources and direct production to resolve supply shortages:
The federal government could get involved and place an order for masks, which would get fulfilled first because a DPA order takes priority over all others. Then, because the government knows which areas have the most need for those masks, it can distribute them appropriately... The federal government can find other sources of those materials and then put in an order to have the company sell the materials to the federal government instead of using them to make their own products.(Vox)
Trump’s resistance to using the DPA at its full force is especially puzzling considering the federal government’s long history of using the act… for weapons of war. The New York Times reported last week that Trump himself has used the DPA to “place hundreds of thousands of orders” for equipment before the pandemic struck.
Invoking the Defense Production Act is hardly a rare occurrence. As recently as last summer, the Department of Defense used it to obtain rare earth metals needed to build lasers, jet engines, and armored vehicles. The Defense Department estimates that it has used the law’s powers 300,000 times a year.
As has already become obvious, Trump recognized the problem too late, ignoring January warnings from medical experts that the U.S. will face a critical shortage of ventilators. Had the president acted sooner, thousands of new ventilators would probably be coming off production lines next month. Even after the problem was recognized, under the leadership of Jared Kushner, the White House and FEMA “struggled to define what was needed, who would pay for it and how to solve the problem of supply chains that stretched across more than a dozen countries.” Now, with Trump beginning to use the DPA for (some) ventilators, there are new challenges.
The president needs to use the DPA for PPE like masks
The federal government needs to direct manufacturers on where to deliver their newly-produced supplies. CNN reported last week that “medical and ventilator manufacturing companies said they have pressed the federal government to take on the role of deciding where to place their supplies. But those calls, these companies said, have gone unanswered.” Abbott Labs, which developed the rapid-response tests Trump showcased last week, is asking the administration where to deploy the tests. Some White House officials reportedly want to ship the tests to rural areas, while officials in hard-hit areas argue that the tests are most useful for first responders and health-care workers in hotspots.
FEMA is importing medical supplies from overseas, but only a portion is being delivered to hospitals in coronavirus hotspots. “The rest will resupply the private market, where competition between states and the federal government has been a source of frustration for governors,” according to CNN. "Everything that's brought, 80% of it, is just dumped into the private market. So then governors are competing against one another, at times the federal government, to try to get these supplies," Montana Gov. Bullock (D) said

2019.06.21 03:32 Lezbelle66613 years legally fucking female, as a transgender woman how much longer do I have to listen to "he, him, his" and every other wrong pronoun, before I take my fucking life in quest of sheer happiness???
Having been pepper spray maced to the fucking face by some cisgender woman about as dumb as a dead Live oak stump submerged for 10 years in a Florida swamp, need I ask how much more I've got to put up with? I already know that I don't fit the definition of the traditional woman. I don't fucking want to; in fact, I can't stand the soccer mommy types and other kinds of breeders. I don't even give a flying fuck for my own niece, a breeder married to some cop in Oregon for something like 15 motherfucking years. Honestly, I have no interest in family. To me it is fucking boring to the max. And so I told my mother when she asked me the following question when I first came out back inl 2006; " I still don't know what made you want to change like you did? I am convinced it has something to do with some banging your head around when they go salted you, and nearly killed you in that pot deal gone bad. The one where the southbury police framed you as the bad person instead of going after that bunch of young thugs." ( You could use that word again. Now that I remember they were members of ICP or Insane Clown Posse, xenophobic white wannabe gangstas into "white power" and shit like that. Like the obviously corrupt southbury Popo, they simply saw me this some sort of "faggot in the closet" or something like that.) My mother had a point, I haven't lived with her most of my life I never really grew up and became this boring adult type person. You know, the job, the marriage, all the fucking bullshit, and yes, the little brats running around the yard. Not that I really give a flying fuck because , as " It", that was never, ever going to happen. I simply didn't have any "gold" to offer some gold digging heterosexual bitch; that said there was never any fucking God damn man thing. All there was was a piece of motherfucking DOGSHIT; something I tried to kill off but probably chickened out at the last minute back in 1996. The time when, working some stupid Goodwill job that almost made me lose my fucking Social Security I've been getting since 1989-for a WORTHLESS SHIT JOB that ain't even worth getting up in the morning for, I ran across Interstate 4 freeway just south of Orlando, Florida and just for the hopes of going to the land of promises!!! The assault occurring years later after I first moved to upstate New York, to a place called East Meredith (in hopes of going to college at State University of New York Delhi College), and then back to southbury, Connecticut where my mom had moved, it made me finally realize that I never was going to be that male monkey thing I was expected to be. something based upon a WORTHLESS " part" attached to my body and nothing fucking else in life, mind you. The answer I gave my mother? " I wanted to outfits the bitches, hos, and CUNTS. All the corporate soccer mommy's crazy looking pretty for the same old rooster still find them appealing after five thousand years of marriage!!!" Actually right about that time I began reading a transsexuals diary online is some transgender site called tuxwerx. She being from San Jose, California I identified with many of the same feelings. The only difference being that unlike me, she grew up as the m thing kind of went to college, became a software engineer at Siemens, and yes, got married and had four children. the other thing different Dean that she went into the air Force during the Vietnam war to hopefully "masculinize herself"; something with your friend of mine, Warren, from West Hartford Connecticut had a bisexual man, also did back in the 70s. He instead becoming a nurse after they decided that he was mentally unfit for combat. ( Need I say that it was in the US Navy that he began to realize, more and more to himself oh, so he was more gay than straight?? As he said to me many times, " if you're looking for semen enlist in the US Navy. You'll find 20 of them there!!!" ) Nevertheless, I'm not fucking " GAY"; HAD THAT BEEN THE CASE I WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS 35 CHRONOLOGICAL FUCKING YEARS AGO!!! A time when, sting bicurious and dating some gay man, I used to stay over his house, only to watch porno videos of women peeing in the toilet. videos that were obviously taken without their consent, mind you, I bought a couple of films while up in New York City and brought them back to Florida where I live with my parents, as it, at the time. This being right around 1986 when I used to go to a lot of AA meetings and other 12-step groups. right now, the only thing I give a fuck about is getting back to California, and yes, getting what the fuck I need. #MEDICAREGRS and #MediCalGRS. I've been working with the gender Health Center in Sacramento, California the last three years, almost, homeless and living in Chico until I finally left after getting my purse stolen along with several identity documents including us total valid till November 2020 New Mexico driver's license I was about to exchange for the California driver's license. Something which, without my knowledge obviously ended up online and used to traduce destroy my chances of getting what the fuck I need to have a reason to stay alive, mind you. there was a reason I burned every one of those fucking baby pictures, as well as every childhood picture when my mother asked me if I wanted them; at which time I replied, " YEAH. I'M GOING TO TAKE THEM AND BURN THEM JUST LIKE I DID THAT BIRTH CERTIFICATE AFTER I GOT THE NEW ONE WITH MY LEGAL NAME ON IT, I'M GOING TO BURN THEM IN THE TOILET BOWL AND THEN FLUSH THEM DOWN SO I'LL NEVER HAVE TO REMEMBER BEING THAT WORTHLESS PIECE OF SHIT ANYTIME BEFORE THE THE DAY I DIE AND 3 DAYS LATER WHEN I AM RESURRECTED!!!" And that is the way I wanted it. Not to be profiled as some gay puto, sex worker, or whatever the fuck out these morons who stole my ID, a boost more likely than not initiated by a certain redneck pile of white supremacist shit in the chico homeless community named Christy " Dee Dee" Hughes. Her redneck piece of shit husband as well. all because they interfered with my life, and got all upset when they overheard me voice to texting, as I am doing right now, into my cell phone and posting something on Facebook about how much I hated my fucking sister, Linda Hayduk; a Republican corporate bitch who later became a right wing, Repugnant wing of the American Republican party Fox News enthusiast. That and the fact that I also posted about how annoying I sound it when somebody says Merry Christmas to you, and yes, the fact that I am honest enough to reply " thank you but I don't celebrate the holiday anymore. I don't believe in Jesus Christ, but you have a wonderful holiday yourself!!" Christian redneck is the word to describe these fucking cretins!!! The problem is this. I'm too smart to believe in slang tooth fairies in the sky as the answer to all of life's problems. I figured out the meaningless and that many years ago, thank you very much. Doing so stock around age 12, shortly after that stupid confirmation my mother made me go to just to please my Aunt Rita. My so-called "godmother" in the fucking Catholic religion I was raised in, but never really forced to adhere to. sometime around age 18 after listening to that iron maiden song, 666 the number of the Beast, I became interested in atheistic and agnostic satanism. having moved to Florida with my parents so I couldn't afford to support myself, as "It"-a name I now use to describe my former life, because I don't even want to remember that old fucking name for the simple reason that it never fucking represented me another was going to represent me until long after I was fucking finally dead, I could not even hold a full-time job. Not only that, but as the years went by, myself being attracted to women in a sexual sense, but not really in many other ways related to the bar sex gender I was raised in- in other words, the date paying door holding fucking idiot women expected me to be, what you felt not only stupid, but completely unnatural to the max, I knew by the chronological age of 27 at things were never going to work out in that department. Something I have called the "Eva syndrome"; this after a woman I met at a fucking emotions Anonymous meeting who wants to change my whole life and make me into what she was expecting me to be. you got it, that Don Juan and special Prince Charles door holding, date paying fucking idiot that gives up living their own life to do what pleases somebody else on a stupid fucking date. Sexually speaking I had sex with one woman, one time in my life. Actually four times in the same week. This fact and September of 1984. The first semester I ever spent in college; I was at Norwalk State technical college, now called Norwalk Community College in Norwalk, Connecticut. I'm at this married but legally separated woman who simply wanted sex and nothing else. I being the co-dependent relationship addict at the time oh, naturally, I wanted more. I was looking for somebody to make life worth living; however, every time that chance ever came, I would blow it!! the gay thing? I never took to it. It just wasn't me. however, the first time I had sex in that one week, out of the four times with that married but separated woman, I was just interested in fucking her that I was in being able to pee just like she did. Since the age of 13 I had been secretly sitting down to pee as it was; also being the voi are, I would listen to the sound of women peeing through the bathroom door in both my house, and when waiting in line at the 12-step groups to use single-use, unisex restroom. Something I thought was a ": fetish", but I later learned in 2002 at a Peace flag meeting I was attending in support of a gay man I knew from another emotions Anonymous meeting in West Hartford, Connecticut after moving back North, was actually called TRANSGENDER. That's said, in May of 2005 I bought my first SKIRTS at Kmart IN SOUTHBURY, CONNECTICUT. MAY 28TH 2006, USING AN ONLINE PHARMACY FROM THAILAND, I BEGAN TAKING BOTH FEMALE ESTROGEN AND THE POWERFUL ANDROGEN BLOCKER BETTER KNOWN AS SPIRONOLACTONE. the latter being something that kills off former life sex drive in similar fashion to chemical castration of a cat, let's say, finally I was able to have respect for women. Not that I did not in that former life. I was always attracted to butchy femme lesbians!!! Finally I was free to be the woman I was inside, legally changing my name August 22, 2006, and yes, the gender on my Connecticut driver's license October 4th, 2006; y'all going to callen Lorde in February of 2007 come on West 18th Street in New York, New York and getting my hormones legally, going to a gay and lesbian bar called a duplex, on 7th Avenue South and Sheridan Square, when the gay guys told me I should learn more how to sit like a lady and everything from the women downstairs, and then warned me " so most of them being lesbians, you're not going to really learn how to be a lady from them!!", I was like, lesbians? Downstairs? I always liked those kind of women anyway; women who didn't sacrifice themselves to be some princess Diana type lady creature or Westport, Connecticut Valley girl." Having dated one man when I first came out, a man who had other transgender women as girlfriend's but consider themselves straight, I knew it wasn't right for me right then. This, despite the fact that he was a really nice Black man home everybody said, did not act like those in New York City typically act. From coatesville, Pennsylvania in the Amish country near Lancaster in Lancaster County he had southern-style manners. that and he was a writer, he wanted to go back to Germany to live with this trans woman who was a professional, had her own flat and a good job; I was definitely into women. Just like I was before I came out of the closet. The only difference being I could not relate to women on a woman to woman cases instead of trying to pretend to be some fake robotic creature as the goddamn M-thing I had existed as for 42 years!!! No, I'm not going to kill myself quite yet. Rather, next month I plan on going back to fucking California because I could get my transgender health coverage there, including that fucking surgery I want!! I don't really give a flying fuck about housing right this very moment. I held off rushing into that and Chico, by the way, for the simple reason that I did not want to be around cretans like what I was dealing with with that bitch Christy Hughes. Her name, how can we put a sights on WHO this " Dee Dee" was, I learned from the Butte County crime victims advocacy. NOT from Chico Popo officer Ratto, who showed up at the scene, I only read ready to Railroad me in the more 5150 fucking worthless mental Health bulshit rather than doing this goddamn job that should have been expected!! I mean what the hell did I do wrong? Hate my own sister on a fucking Facebook page? Which, naturally, was their excuse they used to attack me; " you can't be a woman because women don't hate their sisters with such vicious language like you said about your own sister. Women love their sisters." basically a crock of white supremacist Christian redneck bulshit if I ever heard any, however, the mostly bigoted Chico police, both #blackphobic and #transphobic, the latter which was proven by the shooting of mentally ill twenty-five-year-old #DesmondPhillips on March 17th, 2017 what I first got to Chico come about a month later, need I even wonder after the fact that they sided with these SHITBIRDS?? To which I'm planning to possibly sue the chico police for this transphobic discrimination; I mean I didn't kill my fucking sister. Nor did I threaten her in any way. I unfriended the bitch something like 6 years ago on Facebook; back when I was still at New Mexico State University Dona Ana Community College branch and she told me that she didn't like all the swear words I used on Facebook. That she had other family members, to which I told her, learn Mexican Spanish the easy way, today's words being chinga tu madre, it means the same as vaffanculo in Italian!! Make that chinga tu madre muerte, what you mean FUCK YOU and YOUR DEAD MOTHER, LINDA!!" no I don't give a flying fuck about my sister anymore. she having strange me three years ago, I did say some nasty things. Stuff like how I wouldn't give a shit if she got killed by a train after sliding off the platform on icy pavement and much more, including a healthy auto accident on the Interstate 495 Long Island freeway. This, and retaliation to her saying, I don't care. Call your niece Jamie in Oregon, maybe she cares? and I don't. I knew the family was fucking dead once my mother died; I know, straight up I told my sister got our mother was dead. that I no longer believed in the Catholic fairytale that Mom was up in heaven some place looking down upon me and only proud of me when I accomplished something great. For example, that one time I was on the honor roll the very first semester I started at Dona Ana NMSU. Admitting that I no longer had any use for flying tooth fairies in the sky, that's the Easter Bunny actually made Easter interesting and still does for children to this day!!! Easter being one of the three most boring, meaningless holidays I have ever seen, should I say that I never saw the sense in celebrating some dead Jew the guard about 2,000 years ago?? guaranteed national minimum income, single-payer healthcare, free college education for all students both matriculating, and non matriculating, transgender healthcare including full coverage of the surgical procedures as is done in more advanced countries in the first world, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, and France being just a few of those countries, that does more to help the homeless then believing in flying fairies in the sky or the ghosts of such flying fairies!!! As I said already, I am an agnostic Satanist. Remember, at least online because there are no chapters in my area, of the satanic temple, after reading Anton szandor LaVey's most famous book, The Satanic Bible, back when I first moved to Florida and was sick and tired of all the born-again Christian idiots coming into the AA and NA meetings and preaching their Jesus as the only solution to "spirituality", more and more, I decided to dig deeper beyond that song by iron maiden. 666 the number of the Beast. That said, I don't even know my family anymore. They all grew up, sold out, became a bunch of children raising BREEDERS and are busy living still lives list of families. The same old sit, stand, stand kneel Catholic bulshit being passed down from generation to generation; the same old lies that we, as teenagers, we're all rebelling against, they sold out and bought into. Thus bringing me to this. I am glad I didn't become a sell-out. I'm glad I never grew up and became an adult, unlike the rest of my pathetic generation!! my psychologist at the Time, dr. Michael Scott Johnson was in office in Danbury, Connecticut having told me, right about the time he was working on the letter for a Connecticut DMV to do the gender change, Legally, must I say, he had told me the following. " I already knew that you were never going to have a successful male to female relationship as you desired. Simply because you were too angry at women to even be able to get along with any woman; now you seem different after starting the hormones." He was right. That and the fact that I identified with women who were often femme-butch lesbians; I was seeking a woman who could climb up my castle walls and rescue ME from my "evil stepmother". Not the other way around. I was looking for a woman who could out swear our very own parakeet on her shoulder; "Polly the parrot says go fuck yourself!!! Totally, I am sure!!" You get the idea now. What people don't understand is des. I am egocentric. I worry about myself first before devoting my time to other people. That's why I don't believe the whole Christian fairytale thing, Anton LaVey was right what he said none of it is natural to the human animal in his or her natural state. That said, I'm pursuing the #vulvoplastyGRS, at which time I will make up for lost time, and believe me, go out and play the lesbian field as if there were no end to it. I'll probably end up going back to school too. After all, what else am I doing with my life? go back to school to learn to myself. Not for some stupid fucking job and some stupid fucking corporation that wants me to learn groupthink horseshit so I could be a better team fucking player which I never was oh, I never ever want to be!!!
2019.05.10 01:02 Michiru_MatsushimaFun Fact: The Titans/Oilers franchise is on the losing end of both the largest Home and Road comebacks in NFL history
Largest Home Comeback: 1992 Wild Card Round - Buffalo Bills vs Houston Oilers Date: January 3, 1993 Location: Rich Stadium, Orchard Park (Buffalo), NY Final Score: Bills 41, Oilers 38 Defecit Overcame: 32 points Synopsis: Despite leading 35-3 in the third quarter of this 1992 wild card matchup, the visiting Oilers let their massive lead slip away with five unanswered touchdowns by the Bills. Backup Buffalo quarterback Frank Reich, despite struggling early, torched Houston with four second-half touchdowns, three of which were to Hall of Fame receiver Andre Reed. Add in a rushing touchdown by Bills running back Kenneth Davis, the Oilers suddenly found themselves behind 35-38 late in the fourth quarter. They would force overtime with a last-second field goal, but by then it was too late. The Oilers had the ball first in the extra period, but Houston quarterback Warren Moon would throw an interception to Buffalo cornerback Nate Odomes, eventually leading to a 32-yard game-winning field goal from Bills kicker Steve Christie. This remains the largest comeback in NFL history, home or away. Largest Road Comeback: Week Five of the 2014 Season - Cleveland Browns vs Tennessee Titans Date: October 5, 2014 Location: LP Field, Nashville, Tennessee Final Score: Browns 29, Titans 28 Defecit Overcame: 25 points Synopsis: Sitting at 1-2, the visiting Browns needed a win to improve to .500. But after they fell behind 3-28 in the second quarter (I don't want to hear anything, Patriots fans), the chances of coming out with a victory seemed slim. The first quarter and a half saw a Titans team led by quarterbacks Jake Locker and Charlie Whitehurst seemingly pull away with four touchdowns, compared the Browns' lone field goal. But Cleveland quarterback Brian Hoyer didn't back down. After the team's miserable start, Hoyer tossed three unanswered touchdowns, including a game-winning touchdown to wide receiver Travis Benjamin with 69 seconds left in the game. Hoyer's outstanding play, aided by special teams excellence including a 42-yard field goal by kicker Billy Cundiff and a blocked punt resulting in a safety by Tank Carder, led to the largest comeback by a road team in NFL history.
