Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: first, to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; last to not only fighting for personal privacy & the freedom of information, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. She is a poet, always. All these efforts find representation here: "ah, Mephistophelis" is so named after the last line of Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus, whose heretical success flouted the censor for a time.

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

What the hell is going on?

"National Emergency Authority To Order the Selected Reserve and Certain Members of the Individual Ready Reserve of the Armed Forces to Active Duty" is being used to deploy these up to one million active soldiers domestically, and to direct them to enact the commands of — the Departments of Defense and of Homeland Security.

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.
