Update: Jared Kushner claims federal stockpile of emergency medical supplies isn’t for states: language on Strategic National Stockpile website is deleted

Jared Kushner is working on government coronavirus response behind the scenes, sometimes duplicating the work of experts and displacing qualified personnel from their assigned tasks.  He was blamed for his claim that states can’t use the Strategic National Stockpile. According to HuffPost, he said the following:

“The notion of the federal stockpile was it’s supposed to be our stockpile.  It’s not supposed to be the states’ stockpiles that they then use.”

The Strategic National Stockpile website, however, states the following:

“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.”

Huffpost then quoted Chris Hayes’ tweet: “our stockpile”…”Jared’s personal stash?”

This shows his sense of personal entitlement and takeover of property meant to be  under his care.  He is transforming it into the personal property of his father-in-law to use as he pleases. This is an illustration of just how unqualified is this nepotist with an unearned position of power.  His experience as an inherited landlord and all-around narcissist explains how he got permission from the solipsistic, sociopathic narcissist-in-chief to marry that door-prize daughter.

Update: on Friday morning, someone took time off from coordinating the pandemic response to go to the website noted above and delete the language that I quoted.  Apparently they are reading HuffPost or some other liberal rag and responding to it by trying to cover their tracks.  Unfortunately, similar language is repeated all over that website and numerous other government websites so it looks like an obviously incompetent attempt to change reality.

We are reminded of the scenes in Nineteen Eighty Four in which the hero is occupied, as part of his job for the government, in erasing historical documents and substituting currently accepted language, in some cases destroying all trace of an individual’s existence.  In this web-enabled world, it is next to impossible to erase the truth.  Facilities such as the Way Back Machine keep archived copies of websites so that when they are erased or otherwise disappear, it is possible to retrace the steps by which certain individuals attempt to cover up the facts.
