Trump is keeping the smart part of the population in lock-up

By still not pushing testing, there is still no safe way for Americans to abandon shelter in place. But Trump and his mouthpiece Fox News are enticing them. Enjoy America’s freedom, save the economy, have fun.

When this gives many more deaths, he’ll say, who could have known? They’re our heroes. If the economy would have collapsed, we’d all have died from hunger and then, what good does it not to have been infected? The Democrats are keeping you at home, they are getting us all killed.

No, most Americans are smarter than that. They still self-isolate because it’s not safe yet to leave home. Or better, until there are enough tests done, there is no way to know if it’s safe. Better safe than sorry. Ignore the liar in chief and listen to the health experts. And Fauchi has been very clear. Until the graph goes down, it’s too early to return to normal.

Make it known that not fun-spoiling, economy-ruining, right-to-freedom-harming Democrats keep Americans home. It’s Trump’s lack of testing.

The best for the economy is to stay inside for two weeks; see the numbers go down. Stay in two more weeks and see them go down even more. Then two more weeks and the end will be in sight. That’s what Israel did.

Trump, on the other hand, is not protecting his people — or his economy. He’s playing politics and only aims to win the 2020 elections. It doesn’t matter how many people die as long as he’s reelected. In war, the population needs to sacrifice. And most Republicans seem to agree. But Mr. Bone Spurs’ war is for reelection — not against the coronavirus.

Trump encourages rebellion against the health officials. He puts the decisions in the hands of the State Governors. If they open up ‘too late,’ he’ll blame them for ruining the economy. If they open up ‘too early,’ he will blame them for causing needless deaths. But in any case, he makes sure there are not enough tests so that there is no way to open up safely.

It’s the same policy all these dictators use. Russia has ten times more corona death than they admit. China at least halved the number of real deaths. In Iran they let the virus roam and just make up the numbers.

Trump = American’s health hazard # 1. As always, he launches many fake and petty scandals to distract from the truth, that he is getting 200,000 Americans dead through his incompetence and indifference. He is an old-fashioned monarch. It’s all about him. The People can drop dead. Literally.

About the Author
MM is a prolific and creative writer and thinker, a daily blog contributor to the TOI. He is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (, born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a strict vegan since 2008. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach, and, lehavdil bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff, and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years, he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science (statistics), Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, LGBTQIA, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quite a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second-generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500th blog post with the ToI. If you're a native English speaker and wonder why you should read from people whose English is only their second language, consider the advantage of having a peek outside of your cultural bubble. * NEW: To see other blog posts by him, his overspill blog you can reach by clicking on the Website icon next to his picture at the head of every post. There you may find precursors to later TOI blog posts, addition or corrections of published TOI blog posts, blog posts the TOI will not carry, and some thoughts that are too short to be a TOI blog post. Also, the TOI only allows for one blog post per blogger per 24 hours. Sometimes, he has more to say than that. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
