Opinion: Jared Kushner's spine-chilling role

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, seldom speaks to the public. Now we know why. When he stood at the White House podium on Thursday, what Americans heard was a spine-chilling performance from a believer in small government, delivered at a time when only big government can save the day.

Supplies could be delayed due to confusion from the White House, companies say

More than a week after President Donald Trump said he would authorize the use of a wartime-era law to force General Motors to produce ventilators, the company still hasn't received a formal order from the federal government. GM, as a result, hasn't allowed private companies or hospitals to place orders, according to a source familiar with the matter.

In 2019, Azar Said The Possibility Of A Global Pandemic Scared Him The Most

“This was something that nobody has ever thought could happen to this country.” President Donald Trump said when speaking on the COVID-19 pandemic last week. As it turns out, that was his own Health and Human Services secretary’s biggest fear. “Of course, the thing that people ask: ‘What keeps you most up at night in the biodefense world?'” HHS Secretary Alex Azar said during a biodefense summit on April 17, 2019. “Pandemic flu, of course.” “I think everyone in this room probably shares that ...

Wear a face mask in public to slow COVID-19, says CDC — 'I don’t think I’m going to be doing it,' says Trump

NEW: After weeks of internal White House debate, finally the U.S. Centers for Disease control will 'recommend,' but not require, that people wear face coverings or improvised cloth masks if they go out in public. The CDC will soon advise the American people to wear masks in public to stem the spread of coronavirus. This is a complete reversal of policy change, well into an still-uncontrolled disease outbreak. Lives will be lost because of this policy bungling. President Donald Trump said on...

Trump admin tries to narrow stockpile's role for states

The Trump administration on Friday abruptly changed its description of the Strategic National Stockpile and put forward a narrower vision of the role the federal government’s repository of life-saving medicines and equipment should play in supplying states' needs. The change comes as the White House already is facing growing anger and worry from governors over federal assistance to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

Admin Scrubs Websites Of Stockpile Language That Contradicted Kushner

Shortly after White House senior adviser Jared Kushner said at a Thursday press briefing that the Strategic National Stockpile is not meant for states’ use, language was scrubbed from and altered on government websites to reflect Kushner’s claim. “The state still has a stockpile and the notion of the federal stockpile was it’s supposed to be our stockpile,” Kushner said at a briefing about the coronavirus pandemic. “It’s not supposed to be states’ stockpiles that they then use.” “So I would j...

Inside Jared Kushner and Peter Navarro's efforts to rescue the White House's response

For days, executives at the industrial company 3M gave Trump administration officials shifting explanations for why they couldn't send a larger share of the company's global production of N95 masks to the US. Export restrictions prevented them from shipping to the US, they said at first, before explaining they didn't want to jeopardize foreign business relationships.

Where Things Stand: Then What Purpose Does A Federal Stockpile Serve, Jared?

Not to pile on Jared Kushner for a second day in a row … but what is he talking about? As Twitter has informed me, I wasn’t the only one who noticed the White House senior adviser’s befuddling remarks about the federal stockpile during the briefing last night. To recap: Kushner made the head-scratching assertion that Strategic National Stockpile of medical supplies belonged to the federal government — and not the people living in U.S. states. “The notion of the federal stockpile was it’s supp...

Before Demanding Every Member Cast a COVID-19 Vote, Tom Massie Skipped a COVID-19 Vote For a Fundraiser

As Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) explained it, his decision to try and force every last member of the House of Representatives back to Washington, D.C. in the middle of a pandemic to get their votes on a massive coronavirus relief bill was a matter of pure principle, the type of act that those truly wedded to the ideals of a constitutional republic would gladly perform. “I thought I might be signing my political death sentence,” the Kentucky Republican would say later, reflecting on the procedural m...

New York in 'race against time' as Trump stresses face masks are voluntary

Two of the principal U.S. coronavirus hot spots - New York and Louisiana - reported their biggest jumps in COVID-19 deaths yet on Friday, as the White House sent mixed messages on whether Americans should cover their face if they venture outdoors.

Dismissed U.S. carrier captain gets hero's ovation from crew

The captain of a U.S. aircraft carrier relieved of his command after seeking stronger measures in response to a coronavirus outbreak aboard his ship was given a hero's ovation by his crew when he left the vessel, video posted on Twitter showed. The removal of Crozier, first reported by Reuters, was announced by acting U.S. Navy Secretary Thomas Modly, who said the captain of the nuclear-powered vessel of 5,000 crew members had exercised poor judgment in the way he "broadly" distributed a let...

Fortunes for a Lifetime on Medical Grade Masks

I’ve been on something of a crash course since last night trying to make sense of how and why the federal government is relying – at least to a significant degree – on ordinary market forces to distribute medical supplies during this national crisis. I noted last night in this post and video how this is the plan in terms of how the White House task force is approaching this. These airlifts from abroad are mainly being used to ferry purchases by private distributors. In itself that is not a bad t...
