Picture of a VirusWe’re all focused on the COVID-19 virus right now, but an even greater threat to our nation and our world is the Trumpona Virus (TRUVID-20).  Viruses don’t have the ability to replicate themselves, so what they do is insinuate themselves into a cell body and deceptively and parasitically co-opt the mechanisms and materials of that cell to turn out more copies of itself.  This is exactly what  TRUVID-20 has done.  It has insinuated itself into the body politic over the past three and-a-half  years, and has been tapping into the deep levels of hate, fear, and ignorance that have festered underneath this country like a chronic sore for as long as it’s been a nation.

Like all viruses, this virus lacks an inner core–a soul if you will–and thus must exploit human bodies to fulfill itself wherever it goes.  This is a virus that is built upon a rotten foundation of chronic lies–it needs to lie, otherwise the cell body would never allow it to penetrate its membrane.  Its lies are insidious.  They presume to speak of ”our heritage” and ”liberty” and ”civil rights” when in fact they actually speak of the right to espouse beliefs like white power, the right to possess deadly assault armaments, and the right to assault peaceful protesters in the streets.

It almost goes without saying that this virus is very, VERY, dangerous.  Already it has, through deception and misinformation, caused the deaths of at least 133,000 human beings through its enabling of another virus:  COVID-19, and very likely caused more individual fatalities where deaths were not properly identified, as well as those who did not receive medical attention because the hospitals were clogged with COVID patients.

The TRUVID-20 virus also threatens the lives of hundreds of millions of people around the world through its deceptive misinformation campaign about the effects of climate change.  And keep this mind if you remember nothing else, this virus is only a toddler’s-trantrum away from an all-out nuclear exchange that would extinguish all human life on the planet.

Some people have claimed that this virus is not a virus at all, but an American politician.  Do not be deceived.  This is a deadly virus that requires all of our vigilance in order to eradicate it from the body politic.  Politicians who get too close to this virus are themselves infected with the virus and fail to see its lethal effect on them.

If we fail to recognize the immanent threat that this virus poses to our country and to the world, it will continue to seek to replicate itself and its hateful divisive ideas in all branches of government, in growing numbers of unwary citizens, and in a cadre of similar Master Viruses in other countries around the world including Russia, North Korea, Brazil, the Philippines, and Turkey.  We have a chance to stop this virus on November 3, 2020, but make no mistake about it, this virus will stop at nothing to deceive, lie, cheat, rant, dissemble, and threaten its way into maintaining the grip it has on the host cell — America the Beautiful.  Be warned and take action!

    So what are you saying? Vote Trump or Biden. I’m for Trump. I believe in the constitution, Bible and pray for this country each day.
    Oh the boy I got your book for is now going through a nasty divorce with stepdad and mom. The child nobody wants. Nobody understands it breaks my heart. He’s innocent. The medicine he was given I understand now. But he’s with THEM going through hell! Please pray.

  2. God bless you for praying for the country! It really needs it now! I’m so sorry for the terrible situation you describe. I hope that things resolve themselves quickly (another thing to pray for!). With best wishes! – Thomas Armstrong

    I was reading an article on ”Common Core Vote” and up pops your Liberal LEFT Trump Bashing garbage! How ignorant are you that you can’t see that Trump has done more for our Country than any President in decades. Quit drinking the ”kool-aid” and open your eyes. Democrats are now the enemy of Patriotic Americans. Your party will do anything to prevent Trump from winning in 2020 including allowing Antifa groups to come in and destroy our Country. You are now the enemy. And don’t bother harassing me You and your kind are TRAITORS-
    If I could I would have you prosecuted for your anti-American actions.
    GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    I didn’t think you would have the courage to Post my Comments-

  5. Yes, Trump has done more for our country – by dragging it into a pandemic through his failed leadership. I don’t even know where to start to list his negatives – he’s by far the worst president we’ve ever had. I don’t understand why people can’t see that. And no, I am not the enemy or a traitor – I love my country and want to save it from Trump’s depredations.

    The virus didn’t start with Trump. It started in China. So if Trump is to blame for all the deaths in the USA Is every other country’s president to blame for the deaths in their country? I didn’t vote for Trump but I can’t for the life of me understand how anyone can really think this virus or any death caused by it is his fault. I remember him trying to close the border and being accused of being racist. Seems to me it’s a case of -what’s thats saying? Damned if you do and damned if you don’t. This virus was released in China. That’s who I blame for the deaths world wide, which by the way are not as many as is being reported. Their is financial incentive to report deaths from covid. Where money stands to be made, there is corruption. My father was dying of cancer. Given a few months to live. When we got his death certificate it listed covid as a cause of death. What? That’s the first we heard of that. His doctor denied him having Covid. He was never tested for Covid. Yet somehow that’s what they listed on his death certificate. I’ve heard several other stories just like that. So while some people have died from Covid, to state that the numbers are as high as they are is just corrupt and misleading. Furthermore, anytime I read an article like yours where someone is so full of hate and cant admit anything good this president has done along with the bad, I immediately realize they have their blinders on and are not able to view things objectively.

    Why is this article even on this site.? I was supposed to be reading about common core and educating children. Not politics and Trump Hatred.

    Brilliantly done, Thomas. I fear that Lynn is lethally infected with the virus. There may be no saving her. But alas, we can’t save everyone I suppose.

  9. Hi Brenda,

    I’m sorry I offended your sensibilities. I included the post on my site because of my fear that Trump’s ineptitude menaces our children’s welfare, and I could not look myself in the mirror unless I spoke out my real feelings about it.

  10. Hi Brenda,

    Trump didn’t start the virus, true. But he has not provided national leadership to get rid of it in our country. Why is our country the worst country in the world as far as fatalities? Because he disbanded the pandemic response team, played down (and still plays down) the extent of the pandemic (the rumors about the number of fatalities being lower are just that, rumors without substance), fails to serve as a role model in not wearing a mask, persists in having campaign rallies without proper hygienic safeguards, and spreads misinformation on the pandemic (e.g. injecting bleach into the body, using unproven drugs etc.). I could go on, but I hope you get my point.

    Wow, Dr. Armstrong, I have read your articles about ADHD for a long time and most of the time I have agreed with them, but this takes the cake! I was tired of reading all the political crap that is everywhere and thought I’d do some research and BANG, here it is too on your website! First of all, you need to check your facts BEFORE you spout off about President Trump! I have done my research about ALL the candidates and do NOT agree with your opinion about our president. I hope you are prepared for what a liberal and progressive administration could do for America! From the sounds of it you are NOT aware because you have NOT done your homework. America has been respected and unapologetic for almost four years and for that I am thankful. We ARE the greatest country in the world inspite of what a previous president has said.
    Have you even read the manifesto they have drafted? It could have been copied and pasted from the 1936 constitution of the USSR under Stalin! This is America for gawd sake! Anyone who believes in that crap is UNAmerican! I believe in my God, my guns, and my liberties. Anyone who believes otherwise is UNAmerican. We were NOT founded under what their ticket embraces. Our founders are rolling over in their graves because of beliefs of individuals such as yourself. I have also done my research about ‘ADHD’ and have dealt with students with the symptoms for over forty years. Back then, there was not a label of ADHD attached to this behavior. Basically, most teachers today put children in a box and teach them in the SAME way. Children learn differently and when a teacher has not tapped into their learning style, you have children who rebel and oops are then a problem for the ‘teacher’. She/He does NOT know how to teach children who learn differently and then they have behavior problems. I got into the profession for the children NOT for summer vacation. Unfortunately, most teachers didn’t and the children suffer. I am NOT an advocate for medicating children who learn differently! Way back in the 70’s COFFEE was the ‘drug’ of choice for children to help them through the day. NOT now and each generation is suffering from all the medication they are prescribed from medical ‘professionals’. Thank you! #Trump2020
