While people go about their daily lives, working, eating supper and doing chores, and evil is set in place.
Oh, there’s plenty of distraction: The squabble about illegal voters and numbers is back; Mr. Trump doesn’t believe reports…
Meanwhile, immigrants, refugees and the people who help them are about to be targetted; Social Security and Medicaid are in immediate trouble; federal agencies are ordered not to talk to the public.
There is more bad news:
*FHA insurance premium cuts for home buyers have been frozen
*The pipeline in North Dakota is moving forward by way of Presidential executive order – Let’s completely disregard Native Americans, environment and any progress that has been made!
*Mr. Trump has indicated his intentions to significantly reduce environmental regulations in the production of cars
I’m not sure which of these troubles me most. Perhaps the communications lockdown of federal agencies: This sets the stage for policies and actions to be taken without public knowledge. Transparency has been a long-time value in the United States. It frightens me to have this compromised or abolished altogether.
Here are three stories from Google News:

Trump clamps down on federal agencies
The Hill – 2 hours ago
The Trump administration is clamping down on public communications by agencies as it seeks to assert control over the federal bureaucracy.
I listened to this one, too. Essentially, federal agencies are banned or limited from public comment, social media or disclosure of any sort.
The time for citizens to join together in support of each other and resistance to such unconscionable tyranny by an administration has arrived: It’s now; not some day.
Are you ready?
