FEMA-

Use of Defense Production Act Authorities to Support the Pandemic Response

https://www.fema.gov/news-release/2020/ ... c-response
The Act requires companies to prioritize government orders and contracts that are necessary to meet the response efforts associated with the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Authorities can also be used to provide financial incentives and assistance to private industry to expand production and capacity for necessary supplies and resources. Four Defense Production Act authorities could be important tools in ongoing efforts to combat the threat of the coronavirus.

Title 1 Priorities Authority

Title I of DPA provides the Federal government the authority to require contracts and orders are accepted and receive priority to ensure all necessary materials, services and facilities are available for national defense.
The President delegated DPA authority and responsibilities to six federal departments to manage the use of the priority’s authority for resources in their jurisdictions. The six departments with delegated authority include:
The U.S. Department of Agriculture for food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;
The U.S. Department of Defense for water resources;
The U.S. Department of Energy for all forms of energy;
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for health and medical resources which can include personal protective equipment;
The U.S. Department of Transportation for civil transportation resources; and
The U.S. Department of Commerce for all other materials, services, and facilities.
Priority ratings can be included in contracts and orders to procure health resources such as personal protective equipment to ensure the federal government has necessary resources to combat COVID-19.

Trump just promised to deliver 100,000 new ventilators in the next 100 days.

From a man who said last night that he doubted whether the ventilators being requested were actually needed, this is a 180 degree shift.
Trump may have figured out how to make money from this.

I've been telling people that the DPA was activated, but not actually being enforced. And that the reason why was because Trump hadn't been able to figure out how to make money from it.

Trump seeks to force General Motors to produce ventilators

https://www.wric.com/news/u-s-world/tru ... ntilators/
– President Donald Trump issued an order Friday that seeks to force General Motors to produce ventilators for coronavirus patients under the Defense Production Act.

Trump said negotiations with General Motors had 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.”

Trump said “GM was wasting time” and said his actions will help ensure the quick production of ventilators that will save American lives.

Experts say the U.S. is hundreds of thousands of breathing machines short of what it likely will need to treat a rapidly rising number of COVID-19 patients. New York, Michigan, Louisiana and the state of Washington have been singled out as virus hot spots in the U.S.
Will GM challenge in court? Want to see the text of that order.
Sooo, the OSG is ordering GM to start making ventilators that he just told Hannity we don't need?

JUST NOW: Trump says he told Pence not to call the governors of Washington & Michigan because they’re not “appreciative” enough of the great job he’s doing.
Trump is a small and petty fellow. :(

If I read this correctly, this only means that the procurement is shortcut and FEMA may dictate the conditions. If GM thinks it needs to oppose they willl just "be unable to provide the capacity within the timeframe requested". :blackeye: No WH commissar will breath down the CEOs necks and execute the project managers.

Trump has told people he wants his signature to appear on the direct payment checks that will go out to many Americans. Normally, a civil servant—the disbursing officer for the payment center—would sign federal checks. ⁦@AndrewRestuccia⁩ scoop: https://www.wsj.com/articles/house-lawm ... 1585318472

As I said, that signature will look just like the signature on the Capitol One hush money checks. If a Democrat could make some ads....

I'm seeing reports that Medical Supply Vendors are Suddenly saying they won't send supplies to Michigan.

Obviously because they won't give trump his required amount of praise. Quid Pro Quo anyone?

The Fucker needs to be impeached again.

That's true. He's playing games with lives. Trump did that, but I think he got pushed back/shamed enough that he is now back peddling trying to save face.
