Unbelievable (sigh)

In a move that just FURTHER shows how the current tRump administration is utterly anti-science, anti-public health, and truly out to destroy the way of life for the middle class, lower middle class, and poor in the United States, they have now removed the CDC (Center for Disease Control) from control of the Covid-19 data that is being collected.  It was published in this article

The blatant, anti-science bias of this administration is appalling.  It is damaging to the health and welfare of the people of the United States, and is in reality damaging to the health and welfare of the entire world. 

The World Health Organization (WHO) is the United Nations agency responsible for coordinating and understanding issues related to worldwide public health.  The United States along with the other nations who formed the United Nations in 1945.... formed the World Health Organization in 1948 to create a global body looking out for worldwide public health.

Just a few weeks ago, Donald J. Trump said he is severing U.S. ties with the World Health Organization over the U.N. agency's handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Last night, Donald J. Trump now strips the United States CDC from control of data collected about the coronavirus pandemic in the United States.

I am just so frustrated, sad, appalled, and shocked about how there are still so many people who support this man and his actions.  He is threatening all of our lives and our future.

And, this is but TWO incidences of so very many horrors that have occurred during his time in office.... destruction of so many facets of human rights, environmental protections,  civil rights, and so many, many, many more things. 

I have a very heavy heart today, thinking about how Orwell was so very right in his book, 1984. Unfortunately, his dire warnings are actually tepid and mild compared to the reality we face. 

And, of course there is the horrendous report from NewsWeek that talks about a prognosticating professor with great previous accuracy who predicts a 91% probability that tRump will be reelected to a second term in 2020.

A great post - calling it as it is. I can only shake my head in disbelief that half of the people in the United States would consider this man qualified for any public office. And yet he still could be reelected.

I have stated before the similarities between the Trump/Republican administration and Orwell's 1987. Everyone should read or reread a copy.

Thank you for the excellent post.
My blood boils at the thought of how when he was in the cross hairs of justice, the Republican Senate acquitted him, despite repeated warnings that to do so would only embolden him. Even now they are Quislings or worst.
People of good conscience and belief in the necessity of a constitutionally bound democratic republic must do everything possible to ensure that the madman would be dictator and his compliant party are "landslided" out of existence.
He is a clear and present danger to the US and to the World.

I so agree with you. But, I am fearful the prognosticator I linked to may be correct. Can you imagine how horrible another four years will be if he is correct?

91% chance of 4 years more of Trump?

That means a 91% chance I move to Sweden. But they won't take me because the whole world knows us Americans are all getting each other sick with our stupidity.

Jesus, I knew Biden was a lame duck candidate. He knows he is old and senile. Step aside. That would be what would have been best for the country. My parents are closing in on 80-years-old and THEY are saying they want a younger candidate.

No, he won't be! He can't be! I know he has some very persistent (and stupid) supporters but, no, he is obscene, in everything he does.
Then again I didn't believe Boris Johnson and the Tories would win in the last election and certainly not with such a huge majority that they can do as they like.
These are grim days.

When he was elected I took solace in the checks and balances that are built into your system, but I never expected the whole party to capitulate to his tyranny.
