Hopefully the USA can survive these twin pandemics since not only is President Trump denying the severity of COVID-19 and facilitating its spread through strong arming the CDC to drop its guidance about the pathogen being airborne to discourage mask wearing, his facilitator William Barr is sowing the seeds of authoritarianism where free speech rights guaranteed by the U.S. constitution are being trampled. For instance, the teenager who wrote, "we are not each other's enemy, only enemy is 12" meaning in his opinion, "the police" is threatened with sedition and 20 years in prison! He MUST be left alone since he broke NO laws!

Also, President Trump and William Barr declared New York City, Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA as "anarchist jurisdictions" and threaten to withhold guaranteed federal funding unless they capitulate to blackmail. If Trump/Barr do withhold federal funding from these cities, then the residents of New York, Oregon, and Washington should withhold submitting federal income tax returns in 2021 and going forward until federal funding resumes. We pay taxes for equal treatment under the law!

And no, my exercise of free speech is NOT sedition!

As an update, today 23 September 2020, President Trump refused to commit to a peaceful transition of power if he loses. He also added, he's not going to commit to any transition of power. This goes in line with reports he's working on "contingency plans" to "bypass election results" if they're not in his favor: theweek.com/speedreads/939191/trump-campaign-reportedly-discussing-contingency-plans-bypass-election-results

I never thought I'd see such a day in the U.S. where the Republic and freedom are threatened like never before. :(

Thank you Karl and Claus-Peter! Sadly America is in the midst of a perfect storm - the threat of an authoritarian dictatorship, racial injustice and its consequent extrajudicial executions, and the pandemic. Nothing is scarier than thinking of what could be the day after the election. I just know, silence isn't the solution. Stay well!

As an addition (28 September 2020) to the above comments re: the twin pandemics and growing authoritarianism in the USA where extrajudicial executions are carried out because of the color of one's skin in violation of every civilized norm and human rights convention: Trump's actions make sense after The New York Times reported among other things that he $300 million in debt, among other things, to banks, individuals and entities in Russia (explains his distaste for NATO and decision to remove U.S. troops from Germany), Saudi Arabia (explains his protection of the crown prince who ordered Kashoggi's murder) and Turkey (explains his abrupt and ill-advised withdrawal from Kurdish areas in Syria leaving them susceptible to Erdoğan's genocidal ambitions that were fortunately halted due to widespread international protests). His "audit" is also more akin to a standoff with the IRS to whom he owes up to $100 million in back taxes. Furthermore, based on The New York Times report, he likely committed tax fraud. No wonder he resists the notion of a "peaceful" transition of power and may not accept the results of the election if he loses. If out of the presidency, he and family members who may also have engaged in tax fraud could face criminal indictments and prosecution.

In all fairness, President Trump calls these reports, "Fake News." He also complains The New York Times obtained his tax records illegally. It can only be one or the other. If it is the former, let Trump produce real evidence such as a cancelled check or bank statement that refutes The New York Times' story. If it's the latter, well then the reports are true and our "billionarie" president paid less taxes than people earning $20,000 a year. Also he may be in a compromised position and have already acted against the interests of the USA in which case the unprecedented modification of his national security clearance would be in order. :(
