Trump’s idea for “disinfecting” people is already being done

MontyPython

That wasn't what my post was about, it was about the fact that Monty to this day is still denying that advanced WMD programs that the war was sold on were not found to exist, even as Bush has long ago aknowledged that.

 

And yet in 17 long years of opportunities to scrape together a little courage and attempt to address the facts I've presented countless times, you have never even tried. Not once. But that's no surprise - You have never displayed any sort of ability (or desire) to think for yourself. Facts be damned, you'll just "think" whatever you're told to "think".

 

Anyhow, this is STILL completely off-topic. As I said before, if you really want to continue proving what a mindless automaton you are on this subject, START A NEW THREAD.

Holy straw-man batman. They obviously don't believe Trump said to inject disinfectant, they presented alternative ideas.

 

 

Where have I said or suggested that is what he said?

 

"referred to" was in reference to THEIR ideas for what he might be talking about. I said in MULTIPLE places that what he said was ambiguous.

 

 

The irony is that you are literally going off on a fantasy tangent about what I supposedly said.

 

 

If that was their point, I missed it. Either way, it doesn't back up the straw-man argument you have constructed.

 

 

Again, the irony is that you are the one foaming at the mouth here contriving reasons to attack "you leftists".

 

I'm not sure why you are so angry. When you go after people in such a rabid way, you leave yourself no room to back down at all or graciously concede a point.

I rest my case, some just belive whatever the hell they want to.

 

You want to belive that WMD program the war was proven to have existed...and so you do. Even as Bush, who has his legacy as a POTUS on the line, long ago admited that this rationale for the war did not hold up.

 

If you can still belive that, you certianly will find wiggle room to keep beliving that Trump's idea to kill covid-19 infections with disnfectants and light because they work so well on surfaces was a smart idea.

 

AGAIN YOU FREAKEN COWARD TELL ME WHY IN THE 1990's B.J. Billy A.K.A. Slick Willy A.K.A. Bill Clinton ORDERED TROOPS INCLUDING MYSELF BE INOCULATED WITH AN UN PROVEN, UN TESTED, Anthrax Vaccine REQUIRING A FLIPPING' WAIVER FROM THE F.D.A. if he was not absolutely positive Iraq possessed at least that capability? A W.M.D. by definition.

Come on Coward tell me.

It is a retarded question because cleaning products are not the responsibility of the <censored>ing federal government.

 

I know that you are going out of your way to dodge answering this, so if you didn't want to answer, why did you get involved in the first place? Donald Trump made a big deal out of embarrassing Chuck Schmumer over this very topic. Whether you want to admit it or not, under the direction of Donald Trump, the Executive Branch took control of oversight of this exact situation.

I just want an update on what is happening and whether the government is going to let up on their purchasing so the citizenry can begin to find it in stores again. We never needed as much TP as folks started purchasing......but we do need food, water, and cleaning supplies. The President has spoken recently about keeping meat production plants open but I haven't heard anything about cleaning supplies.

As you can see by the Iraq WMD tangent on this thread, along with every other Iraq WMD thread, the democrats have decided to completely ignore Bill Clinton's HUGE role in the matter. They've invested far too much in blaming Bush for the entire thing. They're not about to backtrack now and admit that Bill Clinton started the Iraq WMD fustercluck.

 

Democrats lie by omission. They like to cherry-pick facts that are true, but they control their narrative by omitting facts that conflict with that narrative. Bill Clinton conflicts with their GWB/Iraq/WMD narrative so they omit him from the discussion.

I am not dodging anything. You seem to be trying to put the onus on the Federal government, the responsibility of supplying you with food, water and Pine-sol. I don't see how this is suddenly the job of the Fed. We always have need for these things and I am not aware of the Fed disallowing you to purchase them. I have head noises of the price of beef and chicken going up because a few food plants have had trouble with employees contacting the virus and production has been temporarily halted in those plants but pork prices have remained constant and I haven't seen any food shortages, just the usual dire predictions with no real evidence. I have seen no need for water hording and have had no problem getting bleach or any other disinfectant besides those Clorox wipes, which I found yesterday at a hardware store.

 

Again, with the bold, why should the president address something that the feds have no place in the manufacturing or distribution of them? You FEMA statement said nothing about the Fed hording these things, nor did it say that they will alter the supply of these things. This seems to be stuck in your imagination. Cleaning products are manufactured and distributed by private companies, not the government, already.

 

What is it with conservative NeverTrumpers? The don't like Trump so they forget what conservative means. "Trump should give me an update on when I can get my hands on some Ajax!" Please... When were you demanding cleanser from George W. Bush?

Really? Is that your answer? So know all of the sudden B.J. Billy's had nothing to do with it? It's still all on Bush? You can't answer the damn question because you know good and well HE AND EVERYONE ELSE FELT IRAQ STILL HAD WMD'S AND WOULD USE THEM OR.... he was a corrupt son of a b who put MINE and every other Service Members health at risk as a payback. Triggered? you G.D. right I am. Your narrow mind can't grasp the concept that even if Iraq no longer had W.M.D.'s they had EVERYONE convinced they did.

By the way, the woman you felt was going to save us all from evil Orange Man sure as hell thought Iraq had them to.

 

Go ahead sunshine watch it.

 

 

Then you can explain why you are going to vote for a man who also was in support of the war.

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/feb/17/joe-biden-role-iraq-war

 

When the war was debated and then authorized by the US Congress in 2002, Democrats controlled the Senate and Biden was chair of the Senate committee on foreign relations. Biden himself had enormous influence as chair and argued strongly in favor of the 2002 resolution granting President Bush the authority to invade Iraq.

 

You just can't admit Bush didn't act alone, DID GET APPROVAL, DID FOLLOW THE RULES, and know two of his biggest critics are the very people you either voted for or will vote for. OR, answer the question of why Bill Clinton himself ORDERED THAT'S RIGHT MADE AN ORDER THAT ALL TROOPS WHERE TO RECEIVE ANTHRAX SHOTS. Again why would he do this if he felt there was no Anthrax threat. And again, Anthrax is a WMD, is extremely dangerous in weaponized form. Ever stopped to think if he had that stuff he probably had other WMD's as well?

Asking how many tests the US has produced is akin to working for CNN? Asking how we have ramped up our production capabilities is like working for CNN?

 

Those are relevant questions as we peons sit here in the dark waiting for our government overlords to give us permission to leave our homes, don't you think? Tests seem kind of mandatory before we try to resume some sort of normalcy....seems kind of important information for the government (i.e. The President) to provide us. The lack of facts doesn't give me a lot of confidence. He brags so much about everything, seems like he would be trumpeting that info.

 

So when did this nation become a top down authoritarian government? When did the Federal Government become responsible for nationwide testing. When did the Fed become responsible for the daily lives of every American? Everyone keeps looking up, it's time to look around and realize you are responsible for yourself. The biggest issue I have as a cop daily is dealing with people that aren't responsible for their own actions. They are 99% of all the problems in law enforcement. "It's not my fault officer, I didn't ...... " yeah right, So you were forced to rob that person? Sorry personal responsibility goes a long way, as does state and local government responsibility. But most people don't pay attention to what they are voting in so they vote in incompetent children that are not capable of leading.

So you are saying Trump did nothing but instead was out golfing and grabbing various parts of women's anatomy while doing events around the nation to stoke his ego? ....

He came here as a freaking kid and went through the majority of his growing up and his schooling here. Still can't produce a coherent sentence and his "this isn't my first language" excuse was always lazy assed BS.

 

And for Tim-bo,

 

My wife came here and became an American citizen. She's a Taiwanese nation that speaks 7 languages.

 

Russian, Serbo, Croatian, Chinese, German, English, and Italian.

 

She reads and writes them all fluently other than Italian where she isn't as strong at. She was working on a PHd in Germany in Russian studies, and after marrying me dropped that nonsense. She then came here and got her Masters in Criminal Justice, and her thesis is bandied around by the department as the example of how to write a thesis. If you can't tell I am damn proud of her of course.

One thing I never heard her utter is an excuse as to why she can't communicate effectively. Maybe it's time to grow up and realize you are the only person responsible for you. We are not your brothers keeper, and it don't require.a village to raise a child, it takes a village to raise an entitled idiot, it takes 2 loving parents to raise a child.

So when did this nation become a top down authoritarian government? When did the Federal Government become responsible for nationwide testing. When did the Fed become responsible for the daily lives of every American? Everyone keeps looking up, it's time to look around and realize you are responsible for yourself. The biggest issue I have as a cop daily is dealing with people that aren't responsible for their own actions. They are 99% of all the problems in law enforcement. "It's not my fault officer, I didn't ...... " yeah right, So you were forced to rob that person? Sorry personal responsibility goes a long way, as does state and local government responsibility. But most people don't pay attention to what they are voting in so they vote in incompetent children that are not capable of leading.

 

When the President declared a national emergency and put Homeland Security/ FEMA in charge of coordinating the distribution of PPE, ventilators, and other critical resources.

 

The below is dated April 7th.

 

WASHINGTON – Closing the gap between what the private sector is able to provide to healthcare end-users and what is needed for the fight against COVID-19 is a key priority for the White House Coronavirus Task Force. In support of the task force, FEMA and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services created a Supply Chain Stabilization Task Force, one of eight COVID-19 focused task forces under the National Response Coordination Center (NRCC). This task force is taking a whole-of-America approach to address limited supply of critical protective and life-saving equipment.

 

The task force’s primary effort is the sourcing of personal protective equipment (PPE), ventilators and other critical resources to requested by states, tribes and territories.

 

By using the structure of FEMA’s NRCC, the task force is finding and executing solutions to meet urgent demand and enable the U.S. Government to surge support to COVID-19 “hot spots” as they arise.

 

The strategy is executed through a four-pronged approach: Preservation, Acceleration, Allocation and Expansion to accelerate and expand the pipeline of medical supplies and equipment.

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Of course Magic Rat found a bottle at the hardware store........so that means the store shelves are stocked and everybody can buy all they need anytime they need it.

 

The President has had a two hour press briefing every night for four weeks. He has talked about all these supply chains......but I can't find anything about disinfectant (other than when he "sarcastically" asked about injecting it) and those supply chains.

I am still waiting on your explanation of this:

 

Are you being serious about one of his greatest actions being simply following the law?

 

You have governors violating the law left and right. Seizing rights denying the ability to communicate and mass people. You have religious freedoms being stopped. You have companies like Google, Youtube, twitter and others silencing people.

 

I would damn sure say the biggest and greatest thing the POTUS has in fact done is FOLLOW THE LAW. When it's so popular to stop doing so at least the man at the top is following that Constitution. That is a massive achievement.

You would make Patches O'Hoolihan proud with your expert usage of the 5 D's.

 

 

 

If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge an anti-trumper / democrat talking point.

 

When Anton is agreeing with you it's time to reevaluate your position. Because Anton is wrong 100% of the time.

I know that you are going out of your way to dodge answering this, so if you didn't want to answer, why did you get involved in the first place? Donald Trump made a big deal out of embarrassing Chuck Schmumer over this very topic. Whether you want to admit it or not, under the direction of Donald Trump, the Executive Branch took control of oversight of this exact situation.

 

https://www.fema.gov...orce-leads-four

 

I just want an update on what is happening and whether the government is going to let up on their purchasing so the citizenry can begin to find it in stores again. We never needed as much TP as folks started purchasing......but we do need food, water, and cleaning supplies. The President has spoken recently about keeping meat production plants open but I haven't heard anything about cleaning supplies.

 

What did the Federal Government do?

 

By using the structure of FEMA’s NRCC, the task force is finding and executing solutions to meet urgent demand and enable the U.S. Government to surge support to COVID-19 “hot spots” as they arise.

 

This looks like a coordination effort, they did NOT take over the means of production, nor did they seize supplies.

 

 

The first prong represents a critical whole-of-America effort: Preservation of current supplies. The reuse of PPE can quickly expand the capacity to meet the existing needs. It’s important that the medical community follows Centers for Disease Control guidelines for the proper use of PPE to including reuse guidance. The task force is in the process of developing and verifying techniques to clean and recycle PPE.

 

As briefed WEEKS AGO, they have partnered with private industry to create systems to clean and sterilize and reuse PPE. That isn't the same thing as building additional capability, they partnered with industry to get it done.

 

 

 

 

Second, Acceleration of industrial manufacturing is required to meet the urgent market demand. Manufacturers are ramping up production of critical resources and have extended operating hours to increase production above their standard levels. A rapid acquisition process by the joint FEMA-HHS contracting team was established to evaluate and act on solicitations. FEMA is also expediting movement of critical supplies from the global market to medical distributers in various locations across the U.S.

 

As an example of this effort, FEMA coordinated an air bridge for flights from Asia beginning Sunday, March 29 which delivered 80 tons of much needed PPE supplies to New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. The second flight landed in Chicago this morning and FEMA is scheduling more daily. Each flight will contain critical PPE (gloves, gowns, goggles, and masks) in varying quantities. FEMA will not have detailed visibility on the amount of PPE until the flights are loaded overseas.

 

Upon arrival, PPE will be provided, in varying quantities, first to medical distributors in areas of greatest need; then, the remainder will be infused into the broader U.S. supply chain. Prioritization will be given to hospitals, health care facilities, and nursing homes around the country. Additionally, in some cases, the federal government may purchase some of the supplies to be used to replenish the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS) or to provide to states with any identified and unmet needs.

 

Looks to me like they deal with emergency needs, not daily operations which are the responsibility of states and local governments.

 

 

Third, Expansion of the industry is also taking place in manufacturing. Manufacturers are enhancing production capacity with additional machinery or re-tooling assembly lines to produce new products needed in the fight against the virus. The task force is engaging manufacturers, distributors and healthcare networks to build the next phase of supply chain stabilization.

 

Hmmm more coordination. Don't seem like they are "running" anything. They are identifying capabilities and seeing if they can get the demand met. Not the same thing as giving you a raw number daily so you can compare and contrast if for talking points.

 

 

Fourth, Allocation of critical resources focuses on ensuring the right quantities of supplies get to the right place, at the right time. Using a data-driven distribution approach that considers demand and supply ensures resources go where they are most needed. FEMA is focusing allocation of critical resources to areas experiencing the greatest increase in COVID-19 cases with the largest forecast capacity shortfalls. This approach also considers the at-risk population distribution across the Nation.

 

Walmart does this daily. Again they are just executing demand resolution. They aren't capable of producing x number of masks daily with this sort of information. Sorry.

I found a 3-pack can of Clorox Disinfecting Wipes at McLendon's Hardware. There were several on an endcap. I didn't have to specifically ask the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT or DONALD TRUMP for them. That is the point which you dodged.

 

By the way, you can make these yourself with Clorox, paper towels and water, so you don't have to go the lazy way with the premade ones.

 

Also, if these Dinsifectant Wipes are all you use to clean your house, you live in an unsanitary pigsty.
