Trump Finally Invokes Defense Production Act After All Caps-Tweeting At Companies To Make Ventilators

President Donald Trump finally invoked the Defense Production Act to compel the production of more ventilators Friday, after a steady stream of tweet-yelling at companies to do it on their own accord. “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,” he said in a statement. “Our ne...

Trump Yells For Companies To Produce Ventilators While Dithering On Specifics

President Donald Trump seems to have finally caught on to the fact that hospitals need more ventilators to treat people with severe cases of coronavirus. In classic form, the President took to Twitter Friday to urge private companies to shell out the machines “FAST” while behind the scenes, his administration provides the companies with nothing but mixed messaging and a lack of specifics. General Motors MUST immediately open their stupidly abandoned Lordstown plant in Ohio, or some other plan...

Trump is attacking GM on Twitter after a report said the White House was reconsidering a deal to have the automaker help produce ventilators (GM, F)

President Donald Trump attacked General Motors on Twitter on Friday after The New York Times reported that the White House was reconsidering a deal to buy much-needed ventilators amid the coronavirus outbreak.

President Donald Trump attacked General Motors in several tweets Friday after a deal for the company to produce ven...

Trump’s Defense Production Act Two-Step

Despite invoking the wartime law that allows the federal government to direct corporations to produce needed supplies, President Donald Trump hasn’t actually utilized the law. “I invoked the Defense Production Act, and last night, we put it into gear,” Trump said Friday. But he left it at that. And to date, it’s unclear that the law has been used as anything but leverage to coax companies into volunteer supply chain efforts — piecemeal work producing things like ventilators and masks. Jeff Bi...

Where Things Stand: A Sign Of The Times

The fact that a Senate, that just months ago held a contentious impeachment trial, was able to pass any sort of spending bill — let alone a $2 trillion one — by unanimous consent is jaw-dropping enough. But coupled with the fact that four sitting senators were unable to vote on the legislation because they either have the virus at the center of a global pandemic, or are quarantining due to fear of exposure — and this all feels shockingly dystopian. Republican Sens. Rand Paul (KY) — who has th...

Trump and Kushner can still benefit from the $2.2. trillion coronavirus bill, despite Democratic safeguards

Democrats insisted on, and Republicans agreed to, language in a $2.2 trillion coronavirus financial rescue package that bars participation in a $500 billion loan program by any company controlled by the president, top White House officials, members of Congress, or their spouses, children, or children-in-law. But "even the fine print in a near-final 880-page version of the bill has fine print," The New York Times reports, and that provision, meant to block President Trump from profiting off the m...

Don’t Worry, America, Jared Kushner Is Going to Save You From COVID-19

Wednesday, during the latest installment of his daily briefings that have become must-see TV, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he spoke with Jared Kushner. You know Kushner—the president’s son-in-law. The president's son-in-law is a member of the president’s COVID-19 taskforce, but he is not a doctor or an elected official. In fact, Jared has no experience handling pandemics, or any medical background whatsoever. Jared Kushner doesn’t know about science or medicine but Cuomo must appeal to hi...

Time for Experts

In this novel crisis, we in media and online need to shift much of our attention away from trying to eradicate disinformation (and how’s that going?) to spend more of our time and resources once again finding and amplifying good information — authoritative information from experts. That is why I am maintaining and immersing myself in my COVID Twitter list of 500 epidemiologists, virologists, physicians, researchers, NGOs, and selected specialist journalists. I have been taking in their c...

Where Things Stand: Signs That You And Trump Might Be On The Fritz

This is how it typically goes when President Trump is growing tired of you. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), was notably absent from the White House coronavirus task force briefing on Monday evening. While Trump maintained that he and Fauci were on good terms, the absence was significant after Fauci gave a surprisingly candid interview to Science Magazine over the weekend, in which he ackno...

Chinese COVID-19 Positive Thinking from U.S. Elite ~ VIDEO

My man took creative obscenity to a whole different level and I regularly got in trouble for laughing too hard. Through this COVID-19 outbreak, I’ve been thinking about Tom and Ranger School.

'Run them over:' Chinese Americans face growing hate in coronavirus outbreak

As the new coronavirus continues to spread throughout the U.S., Chinese Americans — and Asian Americans as a whole — have reported rising verbal and physical attacks suggesting they're responsible for COVID-19's emergence. It's "a sudden spasm of hate that is reminiscent of the kind faced by Muslim-Americans after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001," but this time, the president isn't acting like he's on their side, The New York Times reports.Yuanyuan Zhu recalled walkin...

Prayer for the Times

/* Not so much funny as applicable to the times... God bless all of you! Stay safe and healthy my friends! */ One Sunday morning at a small southern church the new pastor called on one of the older deacons to lead in the opening prayer. The deacon stood up, bowed his head and said, "Lord, I hate buttermilk." The pastor opened one eye and wondered where this was going. The deacon continued, "Lord, I hate lard." Now the pastor was totally perplexed. The deacon continued, "Lord, I ain't too crazy a...

Fauci On Differing With Trump: He’s Coming From A ‘Hope Layperson Standpoint’

Biden Running Mate? Party Leaders Favor Former Female Rivals

WASHINGTON -- With former Vice President Joe Biden now holding an all but insurmountable lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary contest, many Democrats have shifted their attention to a favorite quadrennial parlor game: the vice-presidential search.Biden has shown his hand in a big and unusual way for a front-runner, saying he would pick a woman as a running mate. That has opened the path for Democratic officials to start picking favorites -- from a socially safe distance.In d...

Trump insisted 'nobody ever thought of' a pandemic like COVID-19. His administration did, last year.

President Trump insisted Thursday that his administration was prepared for the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, but he also said: "Nobody knew there would be a pandemic or epidemic of this proportion. Nobody has ever seen anything like this before. ... Nobody ever thought of numbers like this." It turns out that his administration had gamed out an eerily similar pandemic over the first half of 2019, The New York Times reports, and issued recommendations in October that highlighted how unprepared t...

Home comforts no excuse for slacking off, says Man City’s Laporte

London (AFP) – French defender Aymeric Laporte has urged his Manchester City teammates to keep up their home training routines during their self-isolation — but admits he cannot stop thinking about the club’s possible exclusion from the Champions League. The 25-year-old is presently recovering from a hamstring problem, the latest in a litany of injuries that has limited him to eight appearances this season. City’s players have had to stay at home and been given training plans since the reigning...
