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.

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.

Civil Actions of Discontent Not Terrorism

When and wherever the emotions of the people do reach a boil in spontaneous reactions to instances of injustice and inequality, then President Donald Trump easily paints a picture alleging such people as being domestic terrorists; something they are certainly not. In contrast when right wing groups across the United States (US) raise their ugly actions against progressive inclusiveness, Trump appears to soften his tone of any criticism of these white supremacy factions.

Therefore, it must be noted that civil actions of discontent are not terrorism.

A Spirited Reckoning on Social Justice Confronts America

The shameful repeated failure of the United States (US) to faithfully extend equal social justice to all of its people carries a risk of weathering non amenable rifts into the presumed impermeable unity of the Republic. And in light of recent events revealing the wide disparity in race equality and the stunning push back by the many people to the disparaging racist practices, clearly a spirited reckoning on social justice sits at the core of America's immediate agenda.

Recent tragedies involving deaths or injuries of Black men and women at the hands of law enforcement in the US have been met with star-studded push backs against social injustice.

Marching on Washington 57-Years-Later: a Similar Fate

Fifty-Seven-Years after the "dream" of Civil Rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was revealed during the March on Washington, DC, August 28, 1963, Black America still faces a similar fate today as it did back in 1963.

Racial equality and social justice have eluded Black America. Recent slayings and injuries of Black men and women at the hands of law enforcement in America have confirmed that Dr. King's "dream" of a united and racially equal United States (US) has not come to fruition.

A Winning Ticket - Biden and Harris 2020

The Democratic Party candidates for winning the 2020 Presidential Elections in the United States (US) have been set: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris - a winning ticket to returning national hope, international respect and rational thought to the White House in Washington, District of Colombia, come November 3, 2020.

Biden, Vice President to the 44th President Barack Obama for two-terms, completed the Democratic ticket for the elections on Tuesday night by selecting Harris, 55, a California Senator, who becomes the first ever Black American woman and first Asian American woman to be picked as Vice President in the US.

Troubling Social Angst Within a Pandemic

If living under the direct health insecurities posed by the still persisting and deadly Novel Coronavirus pandemic were not enough to un-nerve the most hardy of individuals, then the apparent violent manifestation of other social angst amid the COVID-19 disease should serve as yet another troubling concern to humanity.

As worldwide infections from the deadly pathogen reach 20-million cases with more than 730,000 deaths and as infections in the United States (US) top five-million with more than 163,000 deaths, pockets of stark violence are emerging within some communities amid the pandemic.

"It Is What It Is" - So May All the Votes be Counted

United States (US) President Donald Trump, facing an election in less than three-months, has summed up the Republic's gruesome death toll from the COVID-19 pandemic as an apathetic: "It is what it is". 

Trump's blunt description of the demise of so many American lives to the deadly and still persisting pesky pathogen, came in an interview with Axios on HBO, earlier this week, as he falsely contended that the Novel Coronavirus within American communities was "under control as much as you can control it.

Time for Good Trouble, Necessary Trouble: Onward to Election Day, November 3

Following today's televised funeral for United States (US) Civil Rights hero, leader and Congressman John Lewis, Americans across all creeds and colors should seek to honor Lewis by getting into some good and necessary troubles onward to Election Day, November 3, 2020, especially amid an unprecedented suggestion to delay the elections from a sitting president fearing defeat because of dwindling poll numbers and his lack of leadership of the Novel Coronavirus pandemic.

The Georgia Congressman was eulogized by America's 44th President Barack Obama at the Ebenezer Baptist Church - a Church synonymous with Dr.
