White House Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy Peter Navarro has announced that the Trump administration is working on an executive order to end supply-chain reliance for medical supplies with China.
The administration plans to issue this “Buy American” executive order in the upcoming days. They came to this determination after meeting with Republican Senators earlier this week.
At yesterday’s lunch I asked @POTUS to support our efforts to invest in diversifying our supply chain, especially in pharmaceuticals & medical equipment.
He agreed & his team led by by Peter Navarro are also working on an EO to help address this. https://t.co/WlX7u158rV

The order will stop the federal government from buying medical supplies, which includes gloves, face masks, and ventilators, from China. They have cracked down on the export of medical face masks in lieu of the pandemic, instead choosing to horde them, showing the ills of globalism.
Due to the coronavirus scare, Americans are learning just how dependent they are upon China for crucial and lifesaving goods. A shocking 90 percent of antibiotics used in the U.S. are manufactured in China. Navarro has confirmed that the administration no longer wants the country to be so reliant on China.
“China has managed to dominate all aspects of the supply chain using the same unfair trade practices that it has used to dominate other sectors — cheap sweatshop labor, lax environmental regulations and massive government subsidies,” Navarro told New York Times. “As President Trump has said, what we need to do is bring those jobs home so that we can protect the public health and the economic and national security of the country.”
Navarro laid out the Trump administration’s policy guidelines regarding China to CBS News:
Peter Navarro tells @CBSNews the Trump admin is looking to tighten domestic procurement through a 3-pronged strategy: “Buy American,” streamlining regulations, & incentivizing new technologies. The EO targets “essential medicines,” “medical countermeasures,” & their supply chains

“Nothing we do now will impede in any way our ability to get what we need when we need it from foreign sources,” Navarro said to CBS News.
China is not only preventing the world from recovering from the coronavirus, but they also caused the outbreak to worsen greatly by lying repeatedly and suppressing the science in order to save face for their authoritarian communist government.
“I don’t disagree that China’s scientists and doctors can, in some cases, be world-class and very professional. However, they have sitting next to them at every level of government a minder from the Chinese Communist Party, and I do not have any confidence in those party apparatchiks allowing China’s scientists or their doctors to speak freely to anyone outside of China, especially officials in the United States government,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said last month to admonish Chinese incompetence.
One long-term effect to the coronavirus outbreak may be public recognition of the dangers of globalism, in particular with how China has been empowered as a result of this predatory system.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic
Another Republican governor with courage.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.
According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.
“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”
Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”
“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.
Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.
“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.
Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.
“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.
Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:
Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…
This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.
Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.
“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.
“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.
The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
