Masks, other gear are being stolen from states and nations, but by whom? And where are they going?

Now here is a conspiracy for you all to chew on:

This is from the ‘a bit over the top’ (but not that much - compared to some sources) Daily Kos at:

www.dailykos.com...

The article does include links to the sources they used – YAY. So there is verifiable information that shows some of the clues to the answer. The KOS folk think it’s a Trump profiteering scheme since he is taking a loss on his ordinary profiteering.

ATS what do you make of this series of events? What conspiracy is the ‘liberati’ or socialists up to now?



On a runway in China, French officials were preparing to load pallets of much-needed masks and other protective gear, but minutes later those masks took off for the United States after unnamed Americans pulled out wads of cash on the tarmac to buy the supplies away from the French.

One day later, a shipment of 200,000 masks and other gear on its way to Germany was “confiscated” as it passed through Bangkok, Thailand. The German government called the actions “modern piracy.”

And in the port of New York, 3 million masks purchased for the state of Massachusetts were taken away by an unnamed federal agency. In seizing the supplies, the government employed what state officials described as “force majeure” to breach existing contracts and carry off the goods.



Who is buying these supplies? And what the hell are they doing with them?




Why are states being forced to sneak in equipment under the threat that it might be taken away by a federal government that has simultaneously made it clear that states are not getting that equipment back?


It is a Mystery


WTF is going on?

Well, I watched Trump promise during a speech recently where he promised that when it comes to necessary medical supplies and tests that if the Fed is bidding against state governors that the Feds would back off- and that was a lie. The Fed has been outbidding state governors at every turn and taking it all. I don't know if Trump is in on it or if whoever in charge of this at the federal level is going against orders but it is happening regardless.

There is a new type of professional being born on Tarmacs and factory doors world wide.

They are cash for pallets hustlers. No excuse brokers in emergency procurement. Pallet pushers.

Coin it, make some coin. Sell those services.

Would be nice to see a little Sharia Law for these thieves. Cut off a hand ... if they run ... take a foot too.

Whats worse is some of these outright foreign agents in tone and intent are getting US made gear AHEAD of our States procurement officers with existing PAID orders on stand by, like is happening in Florida and they recently brought it to light.

Im not a legal expert but isnt that war profiteering with OUR mainland production during a time of use for the defense production act BY US citizens that are aiding foreign governments in a private capacity...

Am I right? 3M looking right at you. You Fufks.

If I follow you you correctly - you are saying that China is stealing Masks from the French, German's as well as Masks in transit in the Port of New York.

The first two cases, maybe I can see but reports say otherwise. But in the third case, China sees a bit far fetched.

Sounds like a similar situation that happened in Puerto Rico where they found all these supplies hidden in warehouses that were supposed to help with hurricane disaster back in 2017. Puerto Rico Emergency supplies found

Got a link to that feds outbidding State governments? I have been reading a lot of articles and have not seen anything about that happening anymore, it happened early, that is why Trump probably mentioned to the states about buying their own being faster. I won't accept WaPo as evidence, they are considered a tabloid.
