I bet people are going to come up with some really farking stupid conspiracy theories about it though.

Did you know the entire G5 network is built by stringing surgical masks together.

It's all power d by ventilators.

There is a YouTube video that explains it all.  I'd post it, but the info is way to edgy for the simple rubes on Fark.

When everyone that is sucking the President's dick is suddenly in possession of 100,000 N-95 masks, there are only so many conclusions you can draw.

'As the previous owners of this property, you understand the value here, and will give us a good price to get it back...'

"Seizing" is such a strong word for just taking "our" supplies. That belong to "us". For "our" use, not yours.
Just who the hell do you think you are, Trump*s or something? You are little people and the PPS are all belong to "us".

Guessing it's all part of the system where Jared gives them to middle-men to sell back to them.

I've got one - a deep, dark, byzantine conspiracy theory: Trump's an asshole.
Remember - you heard it here first.

Gee, it's like we have a fascist* president.

Reselling just like hand-sanitizer and/or TP hoarders.

Because the feds are evil spawns of satan
 
2020-04-08 1:28:24 PM  
If it were to give priority to a military harder hit than publically admitted to, I'd forgive it, but you just know it's to line the pockets of GOP donors acting as middlemen. The grift must flow.
 
2020-04-08 1:29:51 PM  
Because Trump sees a profit-making opportunity?


\duh

Benevolent Misanthrope: Guessing it's all part of the system where Jared gives them to middle-men to sell back to them.


Lol no. He's gonna SELL the stuff to the middle men so they can sell them back to the hospitals at a substantial markup.

Well... yeah.  What good is a crisis if you don't make money off it?
 
2020-04-08 1:31:38 PM  
Maybe the governors should send in the national guard to protect hospitals from the feds?

They are being seized and handed over to private business that were just formed by Republican operatives to then "distribute" (I.e. sell) to state and local entities at a markup.  There's pretty clear evidence of this.

This is messed up, but I actually hope it is something as banal as 'gimme money'. Because the only other option I can see is that it's a deliberate effort to get the virus to spread and kill people, and that's farking horrifying to contemplate.
 
2020-04-08 1:33:57 PM  
But the agency has refused to provide any details about how these determinations are made or why it is choosing to seize some supply orders and not others. Administration officials also will not say what supplies are going to what states.

Most transparent adm... fark I can't/won't even finish that.

Meanwhile the trump admin sends 170 defunct ventilators to California, the most populous state and one of the first hit. Our governor had them fixed in less than a week, and sent them back along with 330 others to help the states that are hit the hardest (because they wouldn't listen to the precautions).
The stark contrast between competent leadership, and orangutan madness is glaring.

There will be a reckoning after this, one way or another... and don't even try to mess with the elections.

Grift.

The real places that need protection are the shippers and their warehouses.

It's almost like no one has ever heard of the Mob.  The FBI used to go after gangsters, now they'd have to be going after federal workers on temporary assignment.

It's not being "seized" from hospitals. Orders are being placed, confirmed, and then cancelled by the Federal government with no explanation.

Munchausen by Proxy -- HE wants to be the one to save everyone.

They're going to local governments with personal contacts in the Trump administration.

Kleptocracy to the death.

Why the fark do third world banana republics intercept famine supplies, food and medicine? Call me crazy, but I've seen this same pattern in third world "shiathole" countries where the junta diverts resources to themselves and their cronies and make a tidy profit on it.

Donnie, save others?  He values no life but his own.  He can't even pretend to care.

Putting masks on individual people is just wasteful and ineffective. The government needs them to build a giant dome over America made out of germ proof face masks. And China will pay for it.

Hello God.  Lifelong atheist here.  Bolt of lightning, pillar of salt, body covered with boils, etc.  Any of those things delivered during his daily pep rally would render many of my brethren over to you as believers.  Just saying.

You can blame the government's excess secrecy and bullshiat for the conspiracy theories

I wonder just how hard the military is hit. Are they taking them for the troops ? 

Military life is very dense in population

its one of two things.

Either they are trying to do it before NY can do it.

Or because of the stupid farking paywall.

Just in Blue states. I guarantee it.

Duh.

Bless you, my sweet summer child.

There will be no punishment.

There may not even be any elections, especially those that would result in Repuglican losses.

We. Know. Why.

Because Trump is the head of an organized crime family, and he's installed family members and loyalists in place of professionals in charge the federal government. And they are rewarding their political patrons, the "keys to power", while effectively punishing states with leadership which isn't fawning over the mob boss, making sure other states get the message of who gets rewarded and punished.

They are operating the federal government of the United States as if it were their own personal mafia organization.

Because Republicans want to kill as many of their fellow Americans as possible.

So is it time to go all Bolshevik on their Romanov asses?

Came for the rampant TDS, was not disappointed.

So they can sell them back to you at a huge markup and make you grovel for the privilege, all while making blue states suffer for entertainment value.
