Trump Names Emperor Pence As Corona Emergency Manager Czar - Just Like Snyder Named Kevyn Orr

We still do not have Emperor Pence's emails from Indiana, just like we do not have Bill Schuette's emails, but, then again, it probably has something to do with emergency manager privatization powers of maximizing revenues,and/or trafficking tiny humans, but, hey, what do I know?

I know Emperor Pence appointed Debbie Brix.

Meet Debbie Brix:

Debbie Brix
Birx served as a physician in the United States Army, rising to the rank of colonel[4] before she retired from military service. She started her career with the United States Department of Defense as a clinician in immunology, focusing on HIV/AIDS vaccine research. She then served as an Assistant Chief of the Hospital Immunology Service at Walter Reed Army Medical Center from 1985 to 1989. In 1996, she became the Director of the United States Military HIV Research Program at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, a role she held until 2005.[5]
From 2005 to 2014, Birx served as the director of CDC's Division of Global HIV/AIDS (DGHA), which is part of the agency's Center for Global Health.[6]
She was nominated by President Barack Obama as United States Global AIDS Coordinator and confirmed by the Senate; she was sworn in April 4, 2014.[7] In her role as ambassador she has led the organization to meet the HIV prevention and treatment targets set by Obama in 2015 with the goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030.[8] She says that PEPFAR has cut pediatric HIV infection rates by 50 percent in several African countries.[9]
On February 27, 2020, Vice President Mike Pence named Ambassador Birx as the coronavirus (COVID-19) response coordinator for the White House.[1] 

Debbie is a board member of The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria

This is the US fund.
The mission of the Corporation is to encourage individuals, corporations and charitable entities to provide support for the mission of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

I also know that much of these emergency manager czar activities are going to be contracted out for "job creation" purposes of revenue maximizaition, probably through their children's trust funds.

It seems there is a push to repurpose HIV warehoused drugs for COVID-19, more affectionately called Coronavirus.

Pence Panned As Corona Czar-Adds Physician Debbie Birx To Team

Pence needs to learn and model good hygiene to prevent infection. This isn't it.

Pence needs to learn and model good hygiene to prevent infection. This isn't it.
Tissues are one of the great American innovations to stop
spreading the flu.
As an infectious disease physician, I (and many others) was shocked at last night’s announcement that Vice President Mike Pence was appointed to oversee the Coronavirus-19 (COVID19) response. There are a number of reasons why.

First, while the President cited Pence’s experience with healthcare as Governor of Indiana, he was widely criticized by the infectious disease community, particularly for his response to opioid use and HIV.

HIV: In Indiana, Pence was instrumental in fueling an HIV epidemic. In tiny Austin, Indiana (pop. 4200), Planned Parenthood, the only place where people could get HIV testing, was defunded. Combine that with poverty, high unemployment and drug use, and the town had over 150 cases of HIV. This prompted then CDC Director Tom Frieden to note that Austin now has a higher incidence of HIV than "any country in sub-Saharan Africa… They've had more people infected with HIV through injection drug use than in all of New York City last year." Many were coinfected with Hepatitis B and/or Hepatitis C (HCV), causing further illness and costly treatment. In fact, in the U.S., 50-80% of people with IV drug use  become infected with HCV within 6-12 months of starting injecting drug use, all avoidable with needle exchanges.

Pence was adamantly opposed to needle exchanges, although they are of proven public health benefit and efficacy in reducing these infections which can be transmitted sexually or by shared needles. Two months after the outbreak was detected, Pence said he would “pray on it.” Because of the HIV epidemic, Pence reluctantly agreed to allow needle exchanges—but only briefly and only in that county. The Chicago Tribune’s David Rutter (@theeditor50) concluded: “The public's HIV treatment bill for Austin will run $200 million once the epidemic peaks—at least $1 million to save each uninsured patient, say health experts...It's the price of inattention and indifference.”

Public Health:

Here, too, Governor Pence was known for cutting funding for the state’s public health departments. Indiana spent $12.40 per person on public health, compared to $220 for West Virginia. As a member of Congress, Pence also voted against the State Children’s Health Insurance Program although he professes belief in “the sanctity of life.”


The one thing I do know is that formal protocol has been tossed out the window when it comes to governmental action, which sounds like privatizaiton through foreign corporations, just like they did, and are still doing in Michigan.

Here, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is taking unilateral action, all by herself to manage the emergency of coronavirus, unless she was advised, but, hey, what do I know?

I know Matt Whitaker is talking about National Emergency Powers.

And, here is the first State emergency takeover in the appointment by the Governor of an Emergency Manager Czar for the City of Detroit, Kevyn Orr.
