This is what the website for the federal stockpile said yesterday vs what it says today, after Kushner was caught lying about how states aren’t supposed to be using it. It was changed to say, “Many states have products stockpiled, as well.” https://t.co/kbNXiwaJbX
Shout out to a local hero: the woman who calls all the grocery stores in town each morning to find out their stock status on essentials, and shares the spreadsheet in the town FB group. Keeps people from store hopping for TP, reducing contact. 👏👏👏
The Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine is the only record online of the verbiage of a website changed rapidly overnight to reflect drastic changes in policy stated from the podium the previous day. That’s one of the reason we work so hard to maintain it.
The Trump administration just changed its language about the Strategic National Stockpile on an HHS website to jibe with Jared Kushner’s claim that this isn’t for the states.
Before vs. After:
More than 450 DHS employees have tested positive for COVID-19 and another 6,000+ are quarantining/self-monitoring as of Friday, per internal report.
