Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
Question of the day. – Why hasn’t President Trump invoked the Defense Production Act to force the New York Times and Washington Post to convert their facilities to produce toilet paper? It would be a very minimal conversion process.
“Never again…” – Peter Navarro, the director of trade and manufacturing policy, national Defense Production Act policy coordinator and just general all-around White House badass, made a statement at Thursday’s Coronavirus Task Force briefing that didn’t get a lot of attention from our clueless, corrupt news media. But it should have, because Peter Navarro doesn’t just say stuff to hear himself talk.
Here’s what he said, as quoted by the Washington Examiner:
“One of the things that this crisis has taught us is that we are dangerously overdependent on a global supply chain. For our medicines like penicillin, our medical supplies, masks, and our medical equipment like ventilators.
“Never again should we rely on the rest of the world for our essential medicines and countermeasures.”
The Food and Drug Administration, Navarro said, would have to greenlight medical manufacturing so that the U.S. can “leapfrog” other countries, “so we don’t have to compete against cheap sweatshop labor, lax environmental regulations, different tax regimes, and massive subsidies of foreign governments.”
Navarro’s pointed comments were a clear signal to the communist Chinese government and the rest of the world that the Trump Administration will be taking aggressive steps going forward to further de-link the U.S. economy from the Red Dragon with which Trump’s four predecessors worked so hard to entangle it. The clear significance of this flies right over the heads of our corrupt national news media because it does not fit neatly into their coordinated narrative with the Democrat Party.
The same was true of the incredible significance of Wednesday’s Task Force update, when President Trump brought in pretty much the nation’s entire senior military leadership to roll out the Administration’s plan to deploy U.S. military resources in fighting the war against drug imports into the United States from Mexico and South American destinations.
The few media outlets that bothered to file reports on this bit of news – CNN was too busy focusing on Fredo Cuomo’s imaginary fight against coronavirus, which is nothing more than a pathetic publicity stunt – characterized it as a fight against the “drug cartels.”
Here’s how the buffoons at the Associated Press led their story:
President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that Navy ships are being moved toward Venezuela as his administration beefs up counter-narcotics operations in the Caribbean following a U.S. drug indictment against Nicolás Maduro.
The president’s announcement was a break from the daily White House press briefing to discuss the coronavirus pandemic, which has left much of the country in lock-down and which the government warns could cause 100,000 to 240,000 deaths.
The mission involves sending additional Navy warships, surveillance aircraft and special forces teams to nearly double the U.S. counter-narcotics capacity in the Western Hemisphere, with forces operating both in the Caribbean and eastern Pacific. Esper said the mission would be supported by 22 partner nations.
“As governments and nations focus on the coronavirus there is a growing threat that cartels, criminals, terrorists and other malign actors will try to exploit the situation for their own gain,” said Trump. “We must not let that happen.”
So, it’s just another beefing-up in the fight against those nasty Latin-American cartels. Yawn. Nothing to see here – move along to Adam Schiff trying to mount another impeachment effort in the middle of a national crisis. That’s more fun, and fits our narrative of the day.
Look, what’s the major problem with imported drugs killing Americans today? If you said illegal imports of fentanyl, you win the prize. And while these drug cartels do serve as the conduit for most of that fentanyl, where does most of the supply of it originate?
Oh. That would be China. See, illegal drugs have a long supply chain just like the legal drugs. The Administration obviously has information that China is planning to coordinate with its allies in Latin America to ramp up the illegal drug trade and further weaken the U.S. during this time of crisis.
Folks, we are at war with China, and have been for quite some time. It was just a year ago that U.S. agents interdicted an illegal shipment of enough Chinese fentanyl to kill 57 million Americans. That was just one of many similar busts that have been made in recent years. The ChiCom government does pretty much nothing to stop these illegal shipments which have already addicted and/or killed millions of Americans, yet our major corporations just continue to ramp up their business entanglements with that country. Students of history will know that many, many major U.S. corporations in the 1930s had similar entanglements with Nazi Germany before World War II ended all of that.
Now we have an increasing body of evidence that the Wuhan Virus not only originated in China, but that the ChiCom government and World Health Organization coordinated with one another in a cover up while it was spread across the globe during November through January. That virus has already killed more than 5,000 Americans and promises to kill many thousands more.
When Mr. Navarro says, “Never again should we rely on the rest of the world for our essential medicines and countermeasures,” what he really means is that we should never again rely on China.
Again, your corrupt news media is too dimwitted to figure that out and report it accurately. Thus, expect them to all be shocked and surprised when the Trump Administration starts taking major actions to force the disentanglement of the U.S. economy from China’s in the coming months.
That is all.
