Daily Kos: Sen. Perdue (R) bought PPE stocks the same day he was briefed on C-19

Republican Sen. Perdue bought a boatload of PPE stocks the same day he was briefed on coronavirus

Say what you will about Georgiaís Republican leadership team: They are corrupt and incompetent and terrible. Thatís mostly what I wanted to say. First you had Republican Gov. (and anti-democracy cheerleader) Brian Kemp dragging his ass on doing anything proactive to help his constituents during the beginnings and middle of the COVID-19 outbreaks in the country. Now, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Republican Sen. David Perdue of Georgia seems to have made sure he was able to wet his beak before the proverbial shit hit the fan.

According to the AJC, Perdue was a busy little bee on the stock market last month, with 82 transactions dated to March 3, 2020. This came a couple of weeks after the Senate Intelligence Committee was given a closed-door briefing on the potential of a COVID-19 pandemic. Sen. Perdue seems to have been following the lead of North Carolina Republican Sen. Richard Burr and fellow Georgian and Republican junior U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler, both of who dumped millions in stocks in the days and weeks proceeding the security briefing.

Like Burr and Loeffler, Perdue has already said that while this may look like a duck, walk like a duck, and sound like a duck, itís really a swan. Itís a swan wrapped in a flag with a red MAGA hat on top. In general, Sen. Perdue is the kind of arrogant, pig-headed elitist we have come to expect from the Republican Party, and also an untrustworthy narrator of his own story. For example, how prescient of Perdue to decide to buy no less than $65,000 in DuPont de Nemours stock on Jan. 24óthe very day of the security briefing. DuPont is a chemical company that supplies the kind of personal protective equipment (PPE) medical professionals are clamoring for across the country. Over the next couple of weeks, Perdue made sure to invest a total of about $185,000 in DuPont stock.

Coincidentally, Sen. Perdue also sold off shares of casino company stocks while buying about $50,000 worth of shares of at-home streaming service Netflix. The AJC points out that Perdue did also sell a lot of Krogerís grocery store shares, which have gone up with demand. Maybe Perdue just has just dumb luck ? Or maybe Perdue is just dumb, and was lucky to be in on the ground floor of a new scam in this ever- corrupt administration?

Trump 1/22/20 "And -- we're -- we have it totally under control. It's going to be just fine."

(For godís sake why is Trump still President? Get him the fuck out of there. This is all on him. England got rid of Chamberlain and brought in Churchill when things were going to shit. We canít wait until next year. Trump had warnings and fired the people who could have stopped this madness. He didn't get the W.H.O.'s C-19 test kits so he could run a grift on those and wet his beak by selling ones that he was invested in.)

Fact check: Trump tries to erase the memory of him downplaying the coronavirus

Facts First: From January until last week, Trump consistently minimized the risk the coronavirus posed to the country. He claimed to have the virus under "control," that the number of US cases would go "down, not up," that the virus might "disappear" through a "miracle" or something of the sort, that the virus might well vanish by April with the warmer weather, that the media and Democrats were overhyping the situation, and that "this is their new hoax," leaving it unclear whether he was calling the virus itself a hoax. (He later said he was talking about Democrats' coronavirus-related criticism, not the virus.)
Fact check: Trump tries to erase the memory of him downplaying the coronavirus

On Monday, Trump acknowledged that the situation is "bad," that the virus is not under control, that the country might well be heading into a recession, and that American life would not get back to normal for months. He had not made such statements before.
Trump has pointed to his late-January decision to restrict travel from China as evidence that he had always considered the situation "urgent." But he certainly had not clearly communicated that he felt such urgency.

Prior to the World Health Organization's official pandemic declaration on March 11, Trump had never told Americans that he viewed the situation as a potential pandemic. When he was asked by CNBC in an interview that aired January 22 if there were worries about a pandemic, he responded, "No. Not at all. And -- we're -- we have it totally under control. It's one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It's going to be just fine."

On March 9, Trump tweeted, "So last year 37,000 Americans died from the common Flu. It averages between 27,000 and 70,000 per year. Nothing is shut down, life & the economy go on. At this moment there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths. Think about that!" On March 10, the day before the WHO's pandemic declaration, Trump said, "And we're prepared, and we're doing a great job with it. And it will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away."

He added: "It's really working out. And a lot of good things are going to happen."

Thanx to DUer SoCal Dem.

Treason questions for Jared and the Trumps.

1) Is Jared and or other members of the Trump clan selling our federal stockpiles to foreign
countries or grifting off of private suppliers who are selling the P.P.E.s and other critically needed
medical equipment to the highest bider? Those supplies should be going to the areas of most need
not to where Jared and or private companies can make the biggest buck.

2) Exactly what are Jared's credentials to overseeing America's response to C-19? Has he
ever worked in a hospital or a medical setting? Does he have experience in supply chain logistics?
Has he taken one college level course in microbiology and or epidemiology and or even basic biology?

3) Are Jared and Donald trying to kill people in blue states by not sending the needed supplies?
Such as ventilators to NYC?

4) Can somebody please tell this is all a really bad dream?






Just because we need some light and love

Please respond,
Gwen

And all she wants is my credit card information .... what could go wrong?
