The Emperor Trump Era        RECENT EVENTS

The Looming Future?

The decision to split this page arose because the 2011-Present page grew overbig and would for many visitors take too long to load plus the Trump Presidency is a break with democracy and is in opposition to the former Spirit of America context: 2016 was the last year of existence of the U.S. Constitution.

  • 2017 Feb 7: The end of Public Education in America! Billionaire demagogue Betsy Prince DeVos was confirmed by a squeaker vote in the U.S. Senate to become Emperor Trump's Secretary of Education and privatize the entire Education Department.
  • 2017 Saturday Feb 11: As many as 200,000 Californians who live below Oroville Dam - completed in 1968, still tallest in the country - were evacuated as water began over-running damaged spillways. Recent heavy rains filled the reservoir and release of excess water opened a growing crater in an emergency spillway; while the dam itself is secure, the potential breach of the spillway structure could release thirty vertical feet of the water from behind the dam, an event described as an 'uncontrolled deluge'.
