Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

The Military Was Just Ordered To Active Duty -- STATESIDE?!

The executive order, is dated April 1, 2020 but was revised on the 30th.  The same day the lockdown orders — extended on March 29, effectively lapse.  They were not extended.
Trump's entire EO is here.

Be seeing you.
