Defense Production Act: Watch the Democrat/Media Narrative Turn on a Dime

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Watch as the talking points magically change. – The biggest news on Friday was that President Donald Trump moved to invoke the Defense Production Act (DPA) as it applies to General Motors. Not that you would necessarily know that, since the Democrat toadies in the fake, corrupt news media did their best to downplay this big news until they can obtain their new narrative talking points from the DNC on this particular issue. Because a new narrative is coming – bet on it.

Here is the text of the President’s order:

The White House
Office of the Press Secretary
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 27, 2020

Statement from the President Regarding the Defense Production Act

Today, I signed a Presidential Memorandum directing the Secretary of Health and Human Services to use any and all authority available under the Defense Production Act to require General Motors to accept, perform, and prioritize Federal contracts for ventilators. Our negotiations with GM regarding its ability to supply ventilators have been productive, but our fight against the virus is too urgent to allow the give-and-take of the contracting process to continue to run its normal course. GM was wasting time. Today’s action will help ensure the quick production of ventilators that will save American lives.

[End]

The President’s move comes after he had been hounded for a solid week by Democrat politicians and corrupt reporters in the White House press pool about why he activated the DPA about 10 days ago but before Friday had chosen not to target any company with it. Mr. Trump consistently responded that he had not needed to enforce the DPA because so many companies – like GM – were actually doing what the country needed them to do on a voluntary basis.

GM had come forward in mid-March and promised the Trump Administration that, because it had manufactured ventilators in previous years, it could quickly and easily convert at least one of its plants to do that again, and whip out about 40,000 new ventilators in short order for a reasonable price. But, when GM came back to the Administration this week and said that it now only wanted to make about 6,000 of these key pieces of health equipment, would take much more time than promised to do it, and wanted a lot more money per piece, the President decided not to tolerate this kind of double-dealing.

As is his habit, the President announced this major policy move on Twitter:

The “Mary B.” to whom Mr. Trump refers is GM CEO Mary Barra, a leftist clown who has basically run that once-great company into the ground over the past half-decade. As such, she is much-beloved by Democrat politicians  and corrupt journalists because, hey, from their perspective, being an inept CEO is great so long as your politics are right. Or should I say, left.

So, the Democrat/media propaganda complex that has spent the past week hammering the President to invoke the DPA against some company, any company, now has a new narrative conundrum. Do they continue to prod Mr. Trump in to more and more usage of the DPA, or do they now turn on a dime and pound on him for invoking it against one of their cult heroes and start calling him a dictatorial monster for doing so?

You can see where this is going to go, right?

Expect to see the new “Trump is a dictator!” narrative rolled out by leftwing talking heads and their corrupt media toadies on this week’s Sunday morning talk shows. It’s inevitable. This is what these people do.

That is all.

    Prediction: it’s going to rain.

    The left is goading Trump to become a “dictator”. They loved it when “the One” was a dictator via executive orders; somehow, I don’t think Trump will get similar “love” from the cabal during this “crisis”.

    We need firing squads.

      If the Left continues down the road they are on in many states, we may well get them.

        There may be what some are calling “10 Days of Darkness.” Perhaps starting April 1, when everybody thinks it’ll be a joke of some sort. I’m undecided about the veracity of such claims, but I’ll be as ready as anyone.

    That may happen, but the media is assessing a new hybrid strategy of cognitive dissonance wherein they combine two opposing critiques together. It works with their mentally ill glass bubble audience (themselves and a small band of Never Trump Twitter freaks), which is all that matters to them.

    John Harris tested this out a few days ago:

    It is hard to find a silver lining in the gloom of the China Virus right now, but it is there if you just look for it.

    A lot of positives are going to come from it:

    Much of society will be humbled and brought closer to GOD – “there are no atheists in foxholes”. We will become more caring and civilized.

    The political spectrum will be much more clearly defined; the good leaders will shine, and the bad ones will be exposed and REMOVED.

    On-line learning and telecommunication will expand exponentially and many leftist propaganda mills known as institutions of higher learning will have their poisonous influence greatly diminished.

    The MSM (D) will be further exposed as frauds – their influence greatly reduced. Up to now I estimate the MSM (D) still has sway over 10% to 15% of the electorate, i.e., the openminded (the “moderates” and the “Independents”) people who often decide elections – that influence will be cut in half.

    At least in the short term, people will be more hygienic and will take better care of themselves.

    The president will update and reorganize the CDC and make it more of a medical/health organization rather than a political organization.

    We will be better positioned to confront the next biological attack (and hopefully any chemical attack that might occur) with more and better equipment and training.

    The WHO will take a major PR hit and its influence justifiably reduced – they will have to reform or die.

    Our whole “relationship” with China will be redressed and our dependence upon the regime will be forever reduced if not eliminated. This will probably cause a internal revolt and maybe a full blown civil war against the dictator Xi. China was a dying country a hundred years ago, history will repeat itself here.

    India and other democracies will reap the benefit of an international realignment regarding trade.

    Europe and its dictatorial union will be forced to Grow Up, realign their priorities, and probably split up like what the UK did. Look for a lot of Brexits in the next five years.

    The Deep State, the Swamp, Hollywood, and the Chamber of Commerce will be further marginalized.

    Bureaucratic road blocks and red tape will be further broken. Trump has cut though much of the medical BS now; why would he allow it to return to way it was?

    Trump and the GOP will win “bigly”.

      Some others:

      -Mexico is reportedly telling its illegals not to come to the US because of coronavirus
      -People on the trail where I run were all smiling
      -ERs in most places are empty
      -There will be good reason to shut down mass homeless encampments and put them in institutions if they’re mentally ill
      -Adrenochrome is apparently is backfiring on users
      -A lot of people are rediscovering how to read

      As far as hygiene – this will also help stop the spread of the flu. Maybe this year, and next year and after.
      -It will continue to be unpopular to show up anywhere with a cough or cold or whatever!

      One local man who was diagnosed positive had to fight his doctor to get a test. This is unacceptable, and will likely result in sanctions (on Physicians) if they keep this kind of refusal up.

        Much like male beards fell out of fashion in the early 20th century due to anti=tuberculosis public health campaigns.

        1. Jimmy MacAfee - March 28, 2020

          Maybe that’s gonna happen again, the only ones featuring beards will be “women” (who no longer have libraries to perform in?)

    Plans for healthcare rationing in Washington state, hi-tech surveillance in California, door-to-door searches in Rhode Island….all for a virus that has resulted in slightly more than 3000 deaths as it reaches its peak, paling in comparison to the annual influenza toll.

    The Democrat mini-fascist governors are drunk with power and liberty is under assault.

    I think this event is the wedge that finally splits this nation.

  6. phineas gage - March 28, 2020

    With the firing of Trish Regan, I think we can now officially write off Fox, even Fox Business.

    Last one out turn out the lights.

  7. Jimmy MacAfee - March 28, 2020

    Wonder if they’re still permitting people to poop on the streets of San Fran now?

    1. tommer - March 28, 2020

      Probably just requiring the piles to be 6′ apart.

  8. Meremortal - March 28, 2020

    I’m just shocked that Mexico and Canada have gone racist and closed their borders to protect their own citizens FIRST.

    1. Jimmy MacAfee - March 28, 2020

      It’s gonna be interesting when the great big beautiful Wall keeps them in, instead of out!

  9. Ben Colder - March 28, 2020

    The fake news will do a 180 and now Trump will be an evil bastard for declaring martial law just watch thats what they will call it this fake news is really getting hard to take .They are nothing but propaganda for the dem/communist party. I think they really think they have Trump this time .Look at what all the dem/communist Govs have done locked their states down they want to cause a depression if at all possible the communist play book on display.

    Easy question to answer, DB. The MainLeftStream media will do both. They will say, “Why are you only picking on GM?” And at the same time, they will say, “When are you going to invoke the DPA with (Fill in the blank with a Trump supporting business)?” They are so profoundly dishonest that they and the Dems are guaranteeing a Trump victory in November along with a Republican majority in the House.

  11. Jimmy MacAfee - March 29, 2020

    Answer: we are to be a sacrifice to their gods.

  12. Jimmy MacAfee - March 29, 2020

    Wonder why most of our pharmaceutical manufacturing is in China? Supposedly – or allegedly – adrenochrome is manufactured in Wuhan. Chamberpot of Commerce, maybe? Time will tell whether this is accurate or just a rumor.

    One thing for sure: Hollyweirders sure are looking old.
