The media blackout story of the day. – I had planned to write about this story yesterday, but the Barr hearing and Brennan security clearance revocation intervened.
This is a move that only Donald J. Trump, among all U.S. presidents in our history, could have pulled off, because he’s the only one whose business-oriented mind would have conceived of it. Using the Defense Production Act, the Trump Administration is entering into a $765 million public/private partnership with Kodak to enable that company to begin manufacturing pharmaceutical products as a means of getting the United States disentangled from China in that line of business.
From a report at JustTheNews.com:
The Trump administration is brokering a $765 million loan to Kodak for the U.S. film giant to begin manufacturing pharmaceutical drugs, in hopes of breaking foreign supply chain reliance, the White House said Tuesday.
Under the deal, Kodak is creating a new manufacturing line called Kodak Pharmaceuticals with the aim of shifting offshore prescription drug production back to the United States. The loan, administered by the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) under the Defense Production Act, is meant to reduce what the White House called “our dangerous reliance on foreign drug manufacturing.”
On Tuesday, the White House noted that the administration has invoked the Defense Production Act more than 30 times to boost U.S. supplies needed to confront the coronavirus pandemic, including the manufacturing of ventilators, personal protective equipment, testing supplies, pharmaceutical products and more.
President Trump made bringing manufacturing back to America a central goal of his 2016 campaign and subsequent presidency.
“It’s a big deal,” Trump said during a White House coronavirus task force briefing. “It’s a great deal for New York and a great deal for Kodak.”
The White House told reporters Tuesday that 90% of the main ingredients of the most common pharmaceuticals taken each day in the United States are manufactured abroad.
Having products crucial to the health of Americans manufactured by Americans in America: What a concept.
Naturally, the Democrats are mad as hell about it all and the corrupt news media has essentially ignored the story. Because Trump.
The Democrats are gonna need some more security guys. – The feeding frenzy by communist Democrats on city councils all over America to “defund the police” is now beginning to bite back.
As their August convention in Milwaukee grows near, the DNC is finding that police departments around the state of Wisconsin who had previously committed to providing security for the event are no longer willing to work with a party that is advocating for their demise.
From a report at The Hill:
More than 100 police agencies in Wisconsin have pulled out of their security contracts with the Democratic National Convention ahead of their predominantly virtual convention, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday.
Some of the agencies said their decision to pull out of the agreement to send personnel to the convention comes after the Milwaukee’s police chief decided to cease the use of tear gas and pepper spray during demonstrations.
Their decision to pull out of the contracts cast doubt on the convention’s goal to have 1,000 officers at the event, which will run from Aug. 17-20, where former Vice President Joe Biden will formally accept the party’s nomination. Only about 300 people are expected to attend the in-person event.
“MPD’s top priority remains to ensure that next month’s DNC is a safe event for all visitors and participants,” the Milwaukee Police Department said in the statement.
The Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission last week directed Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales to change department policy to restrict the use of tear gas and pepper spray, which has been used by law enforcement at demonstrations protesting racial inequality in recent months.
‘No justice, no peace’ has now become ‘no tear gas, no police’ for the Democrat Party. Actions have consequences.
America needs more U.S. Attorneys like this guy. – U.S. Attorney for the Oregon District Billy Williams lambasted the Portland and national news media for refusing to call out the criminal riots taking place nightly in that city for what it is during a press availability on Wednesday.
Watch this clip – a transcript follows:

Reporter: So, we’re going to back to how you were talking about, how this was overshadowing the message about Black Lives Matter, that you feel like the late night demonstrations are taking away from the fight for racial justice…
Williams: These aren’t late night demonstrations. This is criminal activity. There’s a difference. What you have failed, and the media have failed to distinguish between…you seem unwilling to call people engaged in criminal conduct as criminals. As opposed to lawful protesting.
Reporter: Well, some may argue that the federal agents are acting as criminals too…
Williams: Yeah, well, argue away on that.
Reporter: But we’re not saying either, so…
Williams: Well, so I’m just saying there needs to be a distinction made between lawful, constitutionally protected protest and this [pointing to damage to federal courthouse]. This is unlawful, and people, whether you’re an opportunist, an antagonist, an agitator or an anarchist, call it out for what it is.
Reporter: So you’re saying the late night activity, that is criminal…
Williams: What I’m telling you is you seem to refuse to call something… ‘late night activity’? This is criminal.
Reporter: I, I just said, the late night activity that you say is criminal…
Williams: What I’m saying is, why can’t you call it out as such.
Reporter: Because I’m not…
Williams: You’re using ‘late night activity’? It sounds like a party. It’s criminal.
And speaking of Portland, here is a great example of the kind of abject nonsense the federal LEOs are having to contend with:
“I am a woman!” Juniper Simonis repeatedly screamed during the arrest in Portland. She says she is traumatized and that she was treated “like a man” by federal police. pic.twitter.com/Qtc5m7ExSL

Most likely, “she” was treated as a man because “she” has a man’s body parts. Just a guess.

Same guy, right? You can barely spot the difference. He should star in the remake.
That is all.
