America Descends Deeper
Right now, hundreds of cities in the United States are experiencing some sort of upheaval as a result of the death of George Floyd and countless other African Americans that have suffered for so long.
PLEASE don’t mistake anything that I write as a rant against the good people in police forces and emergency services everywhere. There are murderers amongst civilians, just as much as one Minneapolis cop has tainted the good reputation of so many professionals.
Donald Trump is provoking the situation and is pushing the US to civil war.
I can’t understand why an American president would sit in the sidelines – or hide in his bunker, like he did for the last 24 hours – and poke, poke, poke at a raging hornet’s nest.
Trump berated the nation’s governors during a conference call, describing them as “weak” in the face of growing racial unrest and urging them to take an aggressive stand against unruly protests.
He’s also declared ANTIFA (the American Anti-Fascist league) as a terrorist organization.
This will escalate out of control.
Trump is a small and petty man that continues to fan the flames of protest instead of trying to calm the situation. He has basically told the national guard and military to start firing on the public.

AND THEN … there’s still the underlying threat of Covid. If we don’t see a massive spike in cases over the next week or so, it’s going to be hard to grasp the original precautions that were taken across North America.
Covid will be used as the grounds under which anyone – repeat ANYONE – will be arrested.
We are entering new territory, folks.
