EXPOSED💥: Lawsuit Filed Against #FAUCI Over Zika 🦟 🦟"Epidemic" in FL '16

#AntonyFauci, #FDA, #EPA, et al allegedly formed a "united front to endeavor to use a known neurotoxin (NALED) & carcinogen over a large human population."

#VaccineDeepStateDown! #Fauci

After extensive research in 2016, I observed ZIKA was being used to justify

1) dispatching #GMOmosquitoes
2) Developing a #vaccine (of course).
3) Justifying more spraying of poisons.

🦟I came across @iantrottier who along with others attended city council meetings, basically PLEADING for officials to stop spraying NALED. An organophosphate known to cause MICROCEPHALY, the very thing they wanted to avoid with Zika.

Outrage over @POTUS Trump's violation of norms, principles, and laws has tended to mask actions his Administration is taking that hurts a large swath of his base. Let's stop reacting to all @realDonaldTrump's #bull$hit and start tweeting about issues:
#Healthcare: Trump has tried since election to trash #AffordableCareAct (b/c it's called "Obamacare"), joining Republican states in suing to overturn ACA, doing away with protection for #Pre_existingConditions. Trump budget cuts Medicaid and ACA subsidies by a trillion dollars.
Trump also wants to cut #SNAP once again calling for reductions in the number of adults who can qualify for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. The 2021 budget proposes cutting SNAP funding by about $15 billion from last year. nytimes.com/2020/02/10/us/…

$13.39 million for Lake Champlain protection in the #Appropriations bill that just passed the Senate, 84 to 9. It’s a big increase over last year. We have important work to do, and this will help. @LakeChamplainSG @ECHOvt

Trump’s #EPA stands for
Effectively Polluting Anything

A new attack on the Endangered Species Act is the latest in Trump’s efforts to murder every living being.

Please sign the prewritten letter to your MOC from the @SierraClub below.

It was announced last month that Trump...
proposes creating species-specific protection plans, which will make it more difficult to protect threatened species.

This would also handcuff administrators trying to “consider the impacts of global climate change when deciding whether to list a species.”
It doesn’t end here though. Below is just a partial tally of Trump’s damage to date:

Withdrew from the Paris climate agreement.

Permitted Dakota Access Pipeline.

(Sadly, the list continues...)

TRUMP LIFTS BAN ON HARMFUL PESTICIDE

A ban on the pesticide chlorpyrifos was lifted on Thursday by the EPA.

#Chlorpyrifos is an insecticide known to permanently harm an unborn fetus and cause irreversible brain damage in the womb.

google.com/amp/s/www.forb…
In August 2018, the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a ban on Chlorpyrifos.

EPA Response:

“EPA spokesman Michael Abboud said that the agency is reviewing the court decision. He also questioned data from [CCCEH] regarding the health effects of chlorpyrifos.”
“Even low to moderate levels of exposure to the insecticide chlorpyrifos during pregnancy may lead to long-term, potentially irreversible changes in the brain structure of the child.”

The Obama @EPA issued a rule under the #CleanAirAct to fight climate change by cutting carbon emissions from new power plants. Now, in a hand-out to polluters, @realDonaldTrump’s EPA is trying to swap in something much weaker.
And in the process, they’re ignoring big changes in the market for carbon capture technology, including new bipartisan incentives I fought to pass into law last year.
This Trump proposal is another example of fossil fuel interests capturing the #EPA and tearing down important environmental protections. Read my comment to the EPA: whitehouse.senate.gov/news/release/w…

"Trump’s hostility to the #EPA and his devotion to wealthy fossil fuel interests have been so intense that it would be shocking if he borrowed a page from Reagan’s successful playbook."

theconversation.com/what-next-for-…
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump pledged to abolish the agency “in almost every form.”

He has since abandoned this promise, while supporting Pruitt’s efforts to destroy EPA from within.
Now the agency is at a crossroads, and the president has a chance to change direction.

Pruitt's new policy proposal restricting #science is his most destructive action yet This "restricting science" rule censors the #science that we can use, in favor to Big #Polluters limiting the data that links their industries to deadly #health impacts.
The clock is ticking, will you add your name today?

Let's start here: Dan Rather does a good job summarizing the Sinclair propaganda facet of Trump's authoritarian regime.
Rump's authoritarian behavior includes subverting democracy, failure to be transparent, failure to be accountable, nepotism, cronyism, and many dimensions of financial corruption.
Trump's authoritarianism includes thwarting the will of congress, obstructing the protection of the environment, and putting property & people & planet at unprecedented risk.
