A Coming New Awakening - Standing for Redress in the Absence of Justice

A new awakening not rooted in religious dogma awaits humanity, especially to the people in the United States (US). 

The new awakening is not the stark awareness by the many people of the staunch existence of systematic racism. It will not be the reality of flagrant social injustice in America.

The coming new awakening will be the standing of the many people for immediate and full redress and ultimate justice for the social injustices and acts completed over the many years that withheld equitableness from the victims such as Breonna Taylor, etal.

200,000 American COVID-19 Deaths - the Reality of the Scope of the Pandemic

The United States (US) yesterday passed a grim milestone in recording 200,000 deaths from the COVID-19 pandemic. In attaining the sad reality, the US - with a population of 328-million, clings to global leadership in having the largest death totals worldwide from COVID-19, despite the billion-plus populations of both India and China. 

American deaths represent spouses, partners, children, grandparents, other relatives, friends and acquaintances of far too many people - individuals, many of whom did not have to die if warnings and actions against the disease had been implemented earlier.

A Health Guideline Reversal and Questions - the Diminishing Authority of Health Experts Amid COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of the United States (US), headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, has been accepted and revered both nationally and internationally as a leader in public health. Throughout the years, whether on Ebola or MERS or the seasonal Flu, the agency's guidance has been trusted and accepted in the medical field and by the general public for many years.

However, since the politicization in the US of the deadly and still persisting COVID-19 disease that has now killed in excess of 200,000 Americans and based upon some questionable steps taken by the CDC amid the pandemic along with a health guideline reversal, a diminishing authority of health experts appears to be widening.

75-Years-Later - Another Defining Time Before the United Nations

As WWII dwindled and the United Nations (UN) became chartered, the defining task before the inter-governmental organization back then in 1945, was the promotion and preservation of global peace and security via a multilateral mechanism.

The diplomatic charter signing for the international organization was successful at San Francisco, California, United States (US), on June 26, 1945 with the heralded adoption of the said charter coming on October 24, 1945. The hailing of a defined time for peace and security based upon international diplomacy and in the spirit of multilateralism became a reality for humankind.

No Escape from Crossing Fate - Trump's Inescapable Responsibility for the Spread of COVID-19 in the U.S.

Under no circumstance or scenario must President Donald Trump escape the fate of responsibility for the spread and still persisting Novel Coronavirus pandemic in the United States (US). 

The revealed audio tapes of Trump's confirmed knowledge of the deadly nature of COVID-19 and his admission to play down the gravity of the virus from as early as February 2020, underscore that Trump cannot deflect to any state or person, but only to himself, full responsibility for today's US confirmed 6,688,236 cases of COVID-19 and the 197,946 American lives lost to the disease.

Humanity - Today's Dilemma and Events and the Choices Toward a United Peaceful Tomorrow

The traditional military might, political influence and economic wealth of the United States (US) has for decades successfully placed the Republic in the role of global superpower. Historically, since about the beginning of the Twentieth century, the world, its peace, and its secured stability have appeared dependent upon the faithful stability of the US and its role as the leader for democracy, freedom, opportunity, equality and the rule of law. So the affairs of America have contributed to peacefully shaping humanity.

A Forged Normalization - Flawed in the Absence of an Independent Palestine

The History of the Middle East contradicts any forged Israel-Arab normalizing success in the region done in the absence of a defined and independent Palestinian State. 

While all attempts at lasting peace should be welcomed and lauded like the current efforts toward normalization of relations between Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain, the non-participation of Palestine, Qatar and other Middle East Nations confirms the long-held demands that Israel must end the occupation of all Palestinian lands as a pre-requisite to any lasting agreements to peace in the Middle East.

"Apocalyptic" Conditions of Climate Change - the United States Western Wildfires

United States (US) Senator Jeff Merkley (D) Oregon, has described as "apocalyptic" the tragedy of western wildfires and their choking-smoke impacts upon a large swath of the dry American west, where deadly flames have sadly claimed 35 lives and scorched more than four-million acres in California, Oregon and Washington. Some nine other western states are also experiencing wildfires.

The New York Times, citing Senator Merkley's remarks on the ABC program, 'This Week' on Sunday, quoted the Democrat as saying: "I drove 600-miles up and down the state (Oregon), and I never escaped the smoke.

Unity Toward Defeating an Enemy - the Reality of 9.11.2001 in Contrast to COVID-19 2020

Nineteen-years-ago on September 11, 2001, cowardly terrorists hijacked four American aircraft and shattered the norm of the United States (US). In the wake of the attacks by the planes - the largest attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor, 1941;  2,977 were killed in New York City, Washington, DC and in Pennsylvania. 

The deadly terror attacks upon America had the effect of unifying and solidifying the United States under President George W. Bush as a nation of one voice - fighting against a common enemy, whose destruction was job one.

Failed Oath, Failed Presidency - the Term of Donald Trump

To avoid vehemently posting Blogs of anger, rage, disgust and dread, I had elected to remain silent more often than usual in this recent year. But being silent any longer under current conditions would amount to a dis-service to my fellow country folk and to humanity. Therefore, I speak, I opine and I rage at the state of affairs in America.

My homeland, our Republic - the United States (US), under the presidency of Donald Trump, has witnessed a deepening and widening chasm of national division and a concerning decline of international influence, all in the past three-plus-years.
