Trump Disbans

Coronavirus Task Force

as U.S. Death Toll Mounts – topping 71,000

on May 5, 2020

It appears that Trump is trying to wash his bloody hands of responsibility for the mounting death toll, his slow response, lack of tests, protective equipment, etc. Instead, he is trying to dump responsibility on to State Governors and at the same time blame and bully China to take the focus off his poor leadership. China now warns of possible war with the U.S. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/55135.htm

                  Trump orchestrates Military Propaganda Air Shows throughout the U.S.

      Six planes each Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels (total of 12 planes) costing over $20,000 per hour per plane to fly are involved.   Military propaganda shows are planned all across the US over the next few weeks as a so called “salute to Covid 19 responders and frontline workers.” 

      Let’s cancel the propaganda shows and give the funds instead to the frontline workers and/or for protective equipment  and testing for Covid 19.  It’s bloated military spending that has stolen funds to prepare for pandemics like Covid 19 and to provide Medicare and basic income for all people.

Earth Day film — Planet of the Humans

Michael Moore presents Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It’s too little, too late. Removed from the debate is the only thing that MIGHT save us: getting a grip on our out-of-control human presence and consumption. Why is this not THE issue? Because that would be bad for profits, bad for business. Have we environmentalists fallen for illusions, “green” illusions, that are anything but green, because we’re scared that this is the end—and we’ve pinned all our hopes on biomass, wind turbines, and electric cars? No amount of batteries are going to save us, warns director Jeff Gibbs (lifelong environmentalist and co-producer of “Fahrenheit 9/11” and “Bowling for Columbine”). This urgent, must-see movie, a full-frontal assault on our sacred cows, is guaranteed to generate anger, debate, and, hopefully, a willingness to see our survival in a new way—before it’s too late.
