Any law experts around? Could the government declare war on a virus? That might free up the necessary national measures (and spirit) to stop this thing hard and fast. Hire Quint to kill the shark.

Trump delayed implementing the defense production act by several days — and squabbled with governors over the total amounts they were requesting.

He does not know anything about how to use the power of the federal government and his advisors are equally clueless. Tweeting blithely about test availability and asking private companies to convert to ventilator production is not an executive order.

At this point we need an executive with vision who can lay out the road ahead for the next version of the recovery act. We are getting the stimulus checks out. Great. What’s next?

The fact that he is incapable of articulating that vision is sad. Very sad. And we are suffering the consequences of that.

You don't need a law expert. Trump enacted the Defense Production Act on Friday to compel GM to start making ventilators. The War Powers Act ensures that both Congress and the president must jointly declare "war" - this is intended to prevent the president, as Commander in Chief, from using the armed forces without Congress having a check on that power. It was passed after Vietnam to ensure that we never fight a war without the express support of a representative government. It was originally written for foreign wars but can be leveraged domestically to make resources of the military available for Domestic emergencies.

But Defense Production Act is separate from War Powers Act? Sounds like if he wanted to declare a sort of wartime, national, martial law to enforce quarantine, he’d need the approval of Congress. Right now it’s the states with all that power.

This is going to come up more and more as this spreads. This virus could increasingly become a threat to national security. It’s already hitting the armed forces, pulling ships out of service.

Whatever the USA is doing is clearly not enough to squash this bug. Some lessons must be taken from the Chinese approach. Like, today. We’re looking at endless bailouts until this thing is controlled.

Back to the more important point OP... didn't Sheriff Brody kill the shark? Quint was Chum.
