COMMENTARY
Newt Gingrich's Question for Biden Exposes Obama Admin's Undeniable Role in N95 Mask Shortage

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is among many Americans who want former Vice President Joe Biden to explain why the type of medical masks known as N95 were not replaced in the National Strategic Stockpile after the H1N1 flu outbreak of 2009-10.

The media blind spot keeps getting bigger.

The unprecedented public health crisis brought on by the coronavirus pandemic has upended just about every part of American public life, but one factor remains unchanged:


The knee-jerk reflex of the mainstream media to pour blame on President Donald Trump — even when it’s clear that either his administration isn’t at fault — or that his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, should shoulder some of the responsibility for the nation’s problems.

Fortunately, the Trump presidential campaign and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich are around to remind the media of their real responsibilities.


The federal stockpile of N95 masks was depleted while Joe Biden was Vice President.

The Obama-Biden Administration ignored recommendations to replenish the masks.


Obama
Los Angeles Times and Bloomberg News: Federal stockpile of N95 masks was depleted under Obama and...
The national shortage of N95 respirator masks can be traced back to 2009 after the H1N1 swine flu pandemic, when the Obama administration was advised to replenish a national stockpile but did not,...

When it comes to the kind of personal protective covering worn by medical professionals treating those infected with the virus, the media has given a fair amount of attention to a looming shortage of N95 masks, the kind made from lightweight foam that are more protective than standard, cloth surgical masks.


What isn’t getting much attention at all, though, is which presidential administration is actually responsible for the federal government’s current shortfall in that department.

According to reports from Bloomberg News and the Los Angeles Times, the shortage predates the current crisis by a full decade — going back to the H1N1 outbreak of 2009-10 and its aftermath, when the Obama administration failed to replenish the huge numbers of the masks that were used by the medical profession.

The masks are part of a vast repository of material known as the Strategic National Stockpile — an arsenal of drugs and medical gear that’s controlled by the federal government for use in times of emergency, such as a pandemic striking American shores.

Bloomberg News is no right-wing news outlet — the guy who owns it just ran a hideously expensive and painfully ineffective campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. But in a report published last week about the national shortage of medical supplies, including N95 masks, the article made it clear that the whole stockpile is running low.

And it made the culprit even clearer:

“The national stockpile used to be somewhat more robust. In 2006, Congress provided supplemental funds to add 104 million N95 masks and 52 million surgical masks in an effort to prepare for a flu pandemic,” the report read.

“But after the H1N1 influenza outbreak in 2009, which triggered a nationwide shortage of masks and caused a 2- to 3-year backlog orders for the N95 variety, the stockpile distributed about three-quarters of its inventory and didn’t build back the supply.”

Many readers will remember that the man in the Oval Office in 2009 and the years afterward was named Barack Obama. They also might remember his vice president was named Joe Biden, the current Democratic front-runner who has the gall to try to lecture the Trump administration these days on its conduct in the coronavirus crisis.

In a report published Saturday, the Los Angeles Times (another not-very-right-wing news outlet) was even more explicit.


“After the swine flu epidemic in 2009, a safety-equipment industry association and a federally sponsored task force both recommended that depleted supplies of N95 respirator masks, which filter out airborne particles, be replenished by the stockpile, which is maintained by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services,” the Times reported.

“That didn’t happen, according to Charles Johnson, president of the International Safety Equipment Assn.

“The stockpile drew down about 100 million masks during the 2009 epidemic, Johnson said.

“’Our association is unaware of any major effort to restore the stockpile to cover that drawdown,’ he said.


Missing from both reports is any answer as to why the Obama administration failed to replace a critical piece of medical materiel in the National Strategic Stockpile.

Why was the U.S. left so vulnerable to the possibility of a pandemic when the Obama administration had just seen one hitting the country?

Gingrich, who’s spent his post-Congress years building a career as an acerbic political commentator and prolific author, is one of the many Americans who would like Biden or his presidential campaign to answer that question:



Can Vice President Biden explain why the Obama administration did not order the N95 masks to replace the 100 million used in the Asian Flu epidemic. Experts advised replacing them but Obama-Biden team failed to buy them. Shortage starts with them. Explain it Joe!

Sleepy creepy can't explain why he is running for senator on thursday, but ok.


As some users pointed out, the masks have a shelf life of five years, according to 3M, a manufacturer of the equipment.

However, as others noted, if the masks had been replaced after being used in the 2009-10 outbreak, they would have been in the cycle to be replaced again.

Had they been replaced again five years later, the chances are very good that instead of a shortage, the Strategic National Stockpile would either be sitting on an almost-new freshly supplied batch of the N95 masks or have more already in the re-supply pipeline.


If the stockpile was stuck with masks past their shelf life because new ones hadn’t been ordered, the media would be having a field day with “exposes” about Trump administration incompetence right now.

Instead, the shortage goes back to the Obama years — an arrogant administration that showed every sign of not caring a bit about the years that were to come after it, from the disastrous Iran nuclear deal to the travesty of justice and insult to common sense known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy.

But when Obama’s to blame, the media’s blind spot just keeps getting wider.

When you find yourself in a hole,PUT DOWN THE SHOVEL!!!

One of the reasons there are Large Corporations in the Relief bill is as GM and FORD are now producing Ventilators and face masks with other items instead of cars. They are still paying their laid off employees as are many large corporations where at some point would run out of cash to do so and these LOANS will help them pull us past that mark.

Amazing.  Funny how things get uncovered years later that gets blamed on the Trump Admin. Just goes to show how slack the O'Bummer Admin. was. Moochelle probably needed more tent dresses and jock cups for her fat ass and also so her Johnson doesn't fall out, so the money went towards that instead. Who needs stinking masks??...

When will Toyota, Kia, Volkswagon, Kubota, and some of the other foreign Companies going to step up? Oh s that's right, NEVER, Just take their profits and stash away in their own Country. This is the second time in the past 10 years FORD has stepped up to the plate, So be PROUD when you start up your rice burner or your Kubota tractor.

I agree in part, there was time to correct Bummers major F up, but apparently you are OK with the fact that Bummer was derelict in his duties and you only want to blame Trump, not the person that was most guilty?

I'm also sure that Trump was so busy trying to correct all the other stuff the democrats were doing trying to sabotage his administration, that I doubt that he had time to go count the masks.

It was approved in March 2017. Ask the Administration that was in power then.

when did 300 people die flying a 737 with an American pilot. not saying maybe there was something wrong with the plane but when they say the pilots didn't have enough training is that really the air lines fault and fair to every one else in the usa. don't know of any 737 that crashed in the usa with an American pilot as it seems there were problems but the properly trained pilots controlled it. guess some people just don't need a reason to bash trump whether its right or not. there is a lot of problems trump inherited from Obama and his on the way for a socialists' government. if there weren't so many maybe he would have caught it.

So, you are blaming the stockpile of masks not being re-ordered on Obama and Biden?

The Trump administration has had over three years to do something about the shortage. Who’s minding the store?

And insulting a woman based on her appearance shows real class.
She has done more for people than you will ever dream to accomplish.

Seriously? seriously, Tramway, Trawler? that is your take away from yet another act of negligence in the Obama administration? twist it back on Trump?
lets see, what has Trump been doing the last three years....rebuilding a broken economy, rebuilding a depleted military, bringing the unemployment down to record lows, Untangling the US from one sided treaties and agreements that was bleeding us dry and tying our hands to grow, and so much more. rebuilding relationships with countries the first black president damaged, standing up to two bit bully countries that Obama wet his pants over, bowed down to and disgraced this country, and bribed many of them, one with cold hard untraceable cash who was and is an enemy of this state, to be nice. A lot of which wouldn't have been necessary had Obama DONE HIS JOB!

And all the while, for three years defending himself from false and unfounded attacks, relentless attacks, lawsuits, etc
I am still confident of this;
I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Ps 27

Hey Russian Trawler, bummer had at least twice the amount of time to had restocked the shelves of the N95 masks. Yes, SIX (6) years! and your pissen about Trump when he has been haven a bunch of retard 8holes trying to impeach him with collusions and phone calls and other phony crap that takes his time away from other things... Your dam fools should have seen to it that the stocks were replenished after they were used. Plain PURE and SIMPLE.
 Trawler, Quit trying to kick that can down the dead end trail cuzz it doesn't do anything like old hellary did for the diplomats in Benghazi... just a bunch of lies and blather from her lips... and 'at this point what difference does it make now???' stupid arse idiot, she an dummer bummer shoulda sent in the troops or drones, not let mens lives be expended that night.
...and now what difference does it make not to have N95 masks ready to be used??? Just like the firefighters do when they get done fighting a fire, they go back to the station and clean up and replenish what they used so they are ready for the next emergency...but your bummer's agency was not in the mood to 'keep america ready' for the next emergency. 
 Guess the President better check over everything else to see what is needing to be replenished now for other facets of life... that have been neglected for the last 12 or so years... and nobody has reported the lack there of.

If Trump didn’t spend his time on Twitter, watching the news and jetting off to one of his golf courses he might get this done. Poor guy, being president is hard.

As far as fixing a broken economy you guys are full of crap. The economy was on a steady rise, he inherited a good economy, not a failing one.

Trump has been president over three years, quit crying about Obama.

Seems you sit in some corner with your other bloviating snowflake type pals and try to figure out how to spin crap.  Bummer said jobs were never coming back... and the jobs came back olike gangbusters ... but you just can't admit that part can you... growth was what 1% and would have probably faultered if the TPP agreement had been signed, and the paris accord sucking out billions and other blowsheit green projects had been implemented and you would have stagnation here... and still no jobs coming back to the USA... But with Trump at the helm, he made it happen... unlike old washout hellary would have drove this country back into the darker ages...
  But now with this CORONAVIRUS... or Chinese virus or corvid19 or whatever you want to call it, it puts a whole different spin on this country and the dam DEM House has to play politics instead of working to save the peoples way of life after this disease is brought under control.  Well I believe there is going to be a major death come November in DC...
Here lays in ruins the democrat party that became insane and jealous with hate that tried to destroy a dually elected President only to destroy themselves in the time of adversities.

Probably some bored, overpaid civil servant sitting at NSS, playing games on his PC instead of actually doing his job as a 'stockboy'. It is easy to see that the WH didn't KNOW that there were no N95 masks at NSS, especially considering the number of beaurcratic 'layers' of bosses, supervisors,managers, etc.
I seriously doubt the CEO of GM KNOWS how many wheel nuts are in HIS inventory.  Do YOU know how many small spoons are in the kitchen drawer ? I know the president of STELCO didn't KNOW what inventory my department had, just knew that steel making kept going as machines got fixed..bottom line.
Heck 4 decades ago, I cut code to optimize a 6,000 item retail inventory, today's computers can do that far easier, faster AND send reports to anyone, anywhere in the World. THAT wasn't possible 40 year ago....
It's not Mr. Trumps fault no masks, the previous POTUS however KNEW and REFUSED to resupply, so Obama is guilty.

Just because it’s bigger than the bulge in your dress does not make it OK to insult her.

Heck 4 decades ago, I cut code to optimize a 6,000 item retail inventory, today's computers can do that far easier, faster AND send reports to anyone, anywhere in the World. THAT wasn't possible 40 year ago....
It's not Mr. Trumps fault no masks, the previous POTUS however KNEW and REFUSED to resupply, so Obama is guilty.





So, using your twisted logic Obama was expected to know and Trump isn’t? Interesting to say the least.

You do know the Trump administration was briefed on the dangers of a pandemic prior to Trump becoming president?

If he had taken this seriously he would have assigned someone to take charge of this area. No one expected Trump to personally do this .His job is to put in place a structure of management to make sure that it is taken care of.
