Peter Navarro Discusses Manufacturing Shifts to Support COVID-19 Combat Efforts…

White House Coordinator for the Defense Production Act, Peter Navarro, appears on Fox News to discuss how U.S. manufacturers are shifting their production lines to generate products needed to combat coronavirus.

GM CEO Mary Barra appears to have found a spark under her corporate butt after President Trump invoked his power under the DPA to support a greater sense of urgency.

    Events such as this highlight the need to bring manufacturing back to this country. We cannot depend on others, especially Communist China. Pound sand you globalists. We be woke.

      That’s been my big takeaway in all of this. Bring manufacturing back to the US and get rid of this useless red tape which should in turn get rid of these useless bureaucrats!

      Watch the progs push the narrative that this plague DEMANDS a greater globalization to ensure that the entire world can join to fight it next time. Yeah, wouldn’t it all have been different had we have had access to all of the wonderous technology and medical advancements the 3rd world/sub-Saharan Africa/Latin America has to offer.

      Rosie Memos tweeted this and it was like a light went on-I’ve thought all along something wasn’t right with all of this and it was either overblown for weaponization against POTUS or much worse-up until yesterday I believed the former, now with this, I’m leaning towards the latter- what does everyone think?

    Any y’all watching DeBlasio on 60 Minutes hinting that the US government should ‘draft’, ‘nationalize’, ‘impress’ or any word you want to use to mandate that all licenced medical personnel in the country be forced into national service. He stopped short of saying ‘in New York City’ but Gauleiter DeBlasio left little doubt what he meant. Let’s see what interesting changes in laws the post-COVID culture begets.

      That action, nationalizing, putting licensed medical personnel throughout the nation under the control/command of the military in times of national crisis was actually in the initial text of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Not sure if that is still in it or not, but it did give the federal government the ability to tell physicians where, and where not, they could practice medicine, such as if a region was short on pediatricians the federal govt could tell a pediatrician in another State they now would only be allowed to ply their trade in the area the feds say they are needed.

      I was so made when the law finally passed decided to not read the final text of it so not sure if it’s still there.

        The Guard belongs to the state governor and its job is to be the first mobilized, by the state’s governor, in the time of an intra-state crisis. If more help’s needed then the military belongs to the President and he can redirect them to aid the states at will. The fuzzy area is involuntary impressment of civilians into government service, lotta Constitutional issues there.

          It has happened in the past and there is historical precedent for the president to do this but it would definitely write off his chances for November 2020.

          In 1916, two of my great uncles knew how to manufacture Armor Plate and that was a rare skill at the time. They were exempted from selective service but pressed into national service.

          There were skills in WWII that had the same happen. Firemen in WWII, at the height of the German blitz vs England was one one of them, my father-in-law showed me his documents.

            There are blue-collar skills that would cheer at being conscripted but physicians would scream like stuck pigs and pull every string they could, they’d make the process look like a (ethnicity deleted) fire drill, they’d whip their patients into a frenzy.

            Thing is that the government’s policies have artificially limited the numbers of physicians and I believe we’re headed for a system with fewer doctors and more ‘medical technicians’. Need a certain operation? Well a technician trained to do just that procedure using robotic systems. There’s also the possibility of a spoked operating room where a technician at each station perform a certain portion of a procedure, the patient’s bed rotating on a table between stations – it was done in Russia.

            Bottom line is the government and it’s clown college of Congressjerks are not going to let the pandemic go to wat\ste, they’re going to get their fingers into it like it was wet paint with a ‘do not touch’ sign on it.

              I spent several nights in the hosptial this summer for gallbladder removal. Skilled nurses have taken over from MDs in many areas. MDs run the show but mostly from behind the scenes. I only saw an MD once for 5 minutes over several days and was very well treated.
              I know nothing of the spoke system but google “henry ford of heart surgery” to read about an Indian bypass surgeon doing things very cheaply and well.

              I had a PICC line installed. A 55 year old RN came into my room hauling a cart of stuff. He jacked up my bed about chest high, used ultrasound to locate the right vein/artery in my upper arm, numbed it, introduced a guide wire into my vena cava which was tracked by fancy equipment, then the PICC line was installed. He wore a gown and face mask. He called and an X-ray tech shows up with his cart and shoots a chest xray. He sends it via wifi somewhere and someone verifies the PICC line is located right. 30 minutes from start to leaving the building!

                More things are being done by nurses and technicians, it’s part of the remonitization of the Medical Industrial Complex. A lot of these functions can be done by non-MDs, especially as if they are done by MDs the billing is greater. My worry is that in order to get more physicians out into the field they’ll delegate more complex procedures to specialist technicians while dumbing down the schooling for both techs and MDs.

          Agree; but putting all licensing of physicians under the aegis of the US military was in the original House version of the Affordable Care Act; was also in the original Senate version. After reading both those was so mad I refused to read the final version that was signed. Figured whatever was passed would be ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

          Boy was I wrong on that count!

            I think the idiots who wrote it didn’t have a grasp of what they were doing, for one big thing they forgot to put a severance clause in it, giving the SCOTUS the ability to pick thru it when it got to them and say which pieces they thought were unconstitutional..

            I don’t believe it, in its final version, gave the Feds the authority to impress physicians, as it is the various Fed policies are responsible for the heavy shortage of doctors in the country. I can see the Feds salivating at the prospect of owning all of the physicians in the US but I can also see that as a trigger for a massive revolt.

      Um yeah listen to De Blasio less than 3 weeks ago–his ‘NYC Health Commissioner’ said the same things, telling people not to listen to ‘the misinformation about the corona virus’ and get out and celebrate the Chinese NY. Now they have 50% of all cases and the rest of us are supposed to go without and bail their butts out of the fire? Screw that-https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1244016912281059329

    Totally dismiss anything a globalist says or does. Never again. Wealth is created primarily through the manufacturing segment of the economy. Everything else other than natural resource related industries siphon off it. Educated your circles of influence so future generations do not have to go through this ever again.

    It is not just the manufacturing we have lost to China, but through basic blackmail or coercion, China has forced US companies outsourced to them, to turn over their own trade secrets, intellectual property, etc, as a cost for continued business with China. Make no mistake however, US companies, fueled by their greed or the corporate bottom line (whatever you want to call it), were complicit in this travesty by their willingness to acquiesce (some might say their “eagerness” to acquiesce) to the Chinese slavemasters. Stop this globalist nonsense and bring back our manufacturing and sense of national pride. When did being a nationalist become a bad or “racist” thing? National pride is what made this great country great. Bring it back along with our manufacturing.

      Our society has allowed these virtue-signaling liberal Moonbats to make everything a “racist thing”, gman…. Undoing that and all of the liberal pablum and idiocy may end up being one of the good outcomes — in addition to reducing our dependency on China and others — we get from this nightmare.

      Sad to say but it was all done nice and legal for short term profit, big kick-back contributions to election funds and with the blessing of the US State Department via Off-set Agreements part of every approved (and renewed) Export License over 3+ Presidential Administrations starting Bill Clinton (minimum). Those documents need to be made public to help shame companies to returning as well as to show what is coming the next time the democrat party regains the White House.

    Wifey just so happened to be tuned into Wolfy Blitzer last night, and I overheard a segment about this DPA move with GM… they were all bitchin’ about how Trump “overstepped his bounds(!)”. While a week ago they were bitchin’ that Trump “wasn’t doing enough(!)”. Just like Sundance predicted.

    Then Wolfy cherry-picked an interview with the main guy from Ventec for a ol’ fashioned CNN Circle Jerk… saying that the GM/Ventec deal was moving forward, so the White House had no reason to blah blah blah derp. Did CNN interview somebody directly from the Administration? Do I even have to say “no”? [Cut to “Facts First” ad spot… literally]

    Sooooo manipulative.

    If our medical personnel are to be called to active duty (but I am not sure that is required now) it should be with the US Public Health Service: according to Wikipedia:
    The mission of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps is to protect, promote, and advance the health and safety of the people of the United States. According to the PHSCC, this mission is achieved through rapid and effective response to public health needs, leadership and excellence in public health practices, and advancement of public health science.

    As one of the United States eight uniformed services, the PHS Commissioned Corps fills public health leadership and service roles within federal government agencies and programs. The PHS Commissioned Corps includes officers drawn from many professions, including environmental and occupational health, medicine, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, psychology, social work, hospital administration, health record administration, nutrition, engineering, science, veterinary, health information technology, and other health-related occupations.

    Officers of the Corps wear uniforms similar to those of the United States Navy with special PHSCC insignia, and the Corps uses the same commissioned officer ranks as the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the NOAA Commissioned Officer Corps from ensign to admiral, uniformed services pay grades O-1 through O-10 respectively.

    According to 5 U.S.C. § 8331, service in the PHSCC after June 30, 1960 is considered military service for retirement purposes. Under 42 U.S.C. § 213, active service in the PHSCC is considered active military service for the purposes of most veterans’ benefits and for antidiscrimination laws.[5]

    President Trump must Streamline first the Federal Agencies (do away with most); cut federal funding to State (this forces the states to do the same thing.); strip away all or at least most of the regulations; and let true Capitalism prosper. There must be a national discussion on placing moral & honest people (men & women) as our leaders at all levels. No more permanent politicians and only a skeleton Government. Universities must educate for these types of positions,
