I was going to say this is good enough to get me to sign up to the bbc i-player but I’m already kicking against the time web and media intrudes and so if I don’t catch it live then it will just have to go. Biggest boon for me is a small handheld transistor radio bought secondhand a couple of weeks ago, now I don’t lose any interviews, music or programmes as i flit from room to room around this house and can so much more easily swap from r3 to r4 as I choose without all the additional walking to and from where the mains powered radio is sited in the kitchen. I deliberately do not possess a mobile or iphone.
It was highly informative to hear (I quote) ‘Tristan Harris, one of the contributors to the successful Netflix documentary, The Social Dilemma.’ I thought actually he said Tristan Han, so lets explore ….
Note one of my tags is ‘the web starves us of art’ …. not found anything better yet than the encyclopedias my dad bought me when i was ten, other books came along too with that quite considerable spend for an ordinary working man. Nothing electronic can provide the richness and diversity of leafing through those still very well illustrated and produced encyclopedias from fifty five years ago.
… this vexes and saddens me greatly, established programmes and hard won connections and systems of delivery are being thrown to the wind and rendered useless. Stability and continuity I would think are vital.
There is no need for this trivial so-called cost cutting in the name of ‘saving money’ and with the covid response I’m sure huge vast amounts of money have gone down the plug-hole (the scandal of track and trace Dido Harding etc) at zero positive effect for the intended purpose. Witness the Government sending me ten thousand pounds which I do not need nor ever wanted (certainly not at this stage of my life, forty or even twenty years ago I would have been desperate for such munificence to help my workshop facilities) just one of about four schemes the self employed could ‘benefit’ from during covid in the UK, thrown to the recipient with no means testing, no follow up, no scrutiny of application or examination of real need. I gave the people a quick call at County Hall, intending to say no thanks and in fact laughing at the silliness of it all but to be told everyone is accepting the money, but I’m okay, I don’t need it! Its the only hand-out I secured in this long turgid covid crapathon and initially turning it down but Mr Greed took over and I was egged on by the ex girlfriend. I’ve not touched a penny of it, maybe I’ll return it. I pay full tax and willingly as a sole trader, deliberately as not a small company, it annoys me so many people vaguely eligible as small company status (which appear to be short term individuals with zero establishment or operating costs) revel in not paying their fair share of tax. Something like 98% of self employed / small business were grabbing for this £10k handout I was told; how not to run a country Mr Sunac.
Anyway, they shower me with money but other people really do need it ie the helpless, those lacking resources; therefore networks, aid programmes and hardworking folk with insight and expertise finding their umbilical is cut. UNICEF etc. cut, cut, cut ….. the lamentable Mr Sunak. A slick kid, well adulated on bbc r4 but I am very sceptical.
You have to realise thinning can occur from underside as well as from the top. The former I’m guessing will be the downfall of the Antarctic ice shelves as they are levered away from the parent body, its a different set-up down south so to speak.
The action is in the Arctic as we read in the above, the highest and lowest extremes in Siberia at one same location has now set new records and sat imagery shows the depletion and the near non-existance of multi-year ice. You can add my tears to the ever increasing sea level.
Arctic News (arctic-news.blogspot.com) is also a valuable read. Locations such as the shallow Laptev Sea are forever burnt into my mind. I’ve a £1k wager with friend Gary who is a little sceptical of the severity of my forecast that if we have not reached 3deg C or above by end of 2026 then I will hand him £1k cash, no quibble. I don’t want it to be so but we must all realise the severity of what is happening with multiple feedback loops, all self and mutually reinforcing to greater and higher levels, its a lethal chemistry set we should never have set in motion, as if all the ingredients are present and its one big joke to see how we exploit, extract and set in motion the inevitable. If only we could have lived as in a Biblical simplicity.
There are so many factors and components and values feeding into the active equation that is planetary science, remember our space on this spinning ball of eight inches diameter scales at one thousandth of an inch ie 0.001in equivilant to a cigarette paper licked and placed on a childs eight inch toy ball.
There is nothing we do re carbon emission that will take any effect inside of a decade, the latest scares and truths in fact are many, loss of the aerosol masking effect, arctic methane, loss of high altitude cloud cover, and my own pet hobby horse of (near never reported) of the loss of the oceanic plankton particularly diatoms, quite ironic as it is ancient diatoms that form the basis for 70% of the worlds oil and gas supplies.
Arch clown, otherwise now realised to be a ‘stand-up president’ as in comedian namely trump should be tried at The Hague for his four year climate denial, this is a crime against humanity, four valuable years lost.
What would help is a universal one child policy, a move from the American burger culture, to live close to work and abandon your car in whatever form it takes petrol or electric, none of them are particularly green. Everything starts and rests with the individual, I deliberately have hand washed my laundry for the last couple of years, its no problem to me as luckily I have a clean job, here in north east England works fine, a quick wring and the washing line does the rest, none of the endless tumbling and spinning of the electrical machine.
Theres approx five hundred posts on this paid for blog, please explore.
… these are the things we have lost that insects, bees and butterflies crave as their winter locations, our slick modernity offers them nothing. No tree is allowed to weather and decay as nature intended, offering a multitude of opportunities for new insects and molds and organisms to appear on the altered now declining tree, a home for bats perhaps; a tree or at least some trees surely must be allowed to follow its natural cycle that can offer a new feast and home to so many living things. In the liability culture and ‘tidy’ malaise that seems to be taken up by everyone from municipal gardeners to householders all must be cut down, levelled and rendered sterile, all trees young, exemplified by the dreaded ‘rowan’ of municipal planting. Likewise our habitations and structures offer next to nothing for the tinier members of the natural world.
So what do I do to counter this ignorance of ecology, this ignorance of the living world? I allow things to decline and rot, I create jumbles of prunings in quiet areas of my garden, I stack same length cut limbs and branches from small trees say eighteen or twenty four inches long topped with roofing felt and a couple of bricks at many places at the perimeter of my garden. I allow bees to take over the various nest boxes if they so wish, which reminds me I’d better get another birdbox made and installed this weekend.
Each autumn I often can find say six nests dotted around this medium size semi-urban garden and also know each nest box generally produces two clutches a year; my garden is alive with the sound of garden songbirds, all it needs is common sense and to read a little to pick up the basics, all gardens should be like mine! But how many people nowadays enjoy the contents of an instructional or non-fiction book, especially kids, so much lost!
A great thrill a few years ago was seeing the queen bee fly in her flightless workers one by one piggy back into the commandeered dry and waterproof birdbox I’d made myself, theres lots of thing I make myself, its my particular mindset and approach to life, its the way I was brought up.
For bee and insect and butterfly overwintering I sometimes wrap up bundles of umbellifer stems with string and place them in unvisited parts of wherever. I specifically allow leaf litter to remain, essential for healthy worms and soil, the latter being much more complex and beautiful than most people realise, likewise the blackbird for instance craves to turn over a mature long established leaf layer. Daily I feed birds at my own garden and the location for my list below.
A location nearby which was once a waste infill site now reclaimed and wooded I’ve introduced two dozen native north British species over the last twenty years:-
teasel (from an old pit site a mile away)
common spotted orchid
round leaved orchid
cranesbill (smashed, destroyed by a one-off visit from a ‘gardening charity’….)
red campion (silene)
unwittingly … thatching reed
yellow flag iris
round leaved mint (failed)
sweet chestnut (failed)
wood sorrel (failed)
goatsbeard … now gone due to overzealous cutting of verges
snowdrop seed five years ago and waiting
my wifes ashes
And I’m sure theres more but cannot recall; each of the above would be a deliberate effort with wild collected material. I shall try again with the round leaved mint, I know of a roadside location where I can obtain complete rooted material, its wonderful for bees, as is the glorious, valuable and much unappreciated knapweed. Likewise I need to get back over to the donor pit yard for the common spotted, ten years ago I had hundreds and now much dwindled to a couple of dozen. I would have thought the reclaimed / disturbed land would suit them.
All done by me and cost nowt …. no app no screen no signal !!! Its what my Dad would call ‘good with his hands’.
I can remember exactly when I heard the news of Prince Philips death, lunchtime bbc r3 and my instant and enduring reaction was joy for his release from an old age. News reported how sad it all was, but surely no, from an extreme old age he needed release, you cannot get better from it, a time for us all to be happy at such a lifetime of achievement.
What a life!
Within hours my response was to regard him as ‘Action Man’ as no-one else I can think of merits this description. And so toward the end of the funeral to hear the Naval ‘Action Stations’ sounded was most fitting to this Philip ‘man of action’, but also this ‘from beyond the grave signal’ sends from Philip a call to get us all into gear, our butts into action and make the most of our lives, to step up and do better; to help motivate and assist.
His incredible intellectuality, experience and outreach I doubt we’ll ever see again.
HRH Prince Philip was very much a practical man and as we have heard these last few days extremely all encompassing in his interests and passions, a voracious reader of all manner of things, a high level thinker regarding God and Faith, passionate before it ever became mainstream to voice ecological concern. This man puts 007 to shame regarding vigour and pure energy and as handsome as any Bond figure. My reading of the man is his self deprecation, a mixture of Naval ‘get on with the job’ and an appreciation of his early precarious start. Soon after the funeral had finished, after four o’clock had passed we were able to listen to a close friend that stressed Philips focus on the need to be passionate, to have enthusiasm, to (with luck) hold passionate interests and to pursue these interests with vigour and therefore without it the world is dull and goes nowhere. Hence for instance his Award Scheme, his discussion and conference projects, a driving force for ecological and climate concerns, a great body of work.
I agree entirely with the importance of enthusiasm and intellectual curiosity, many times through my marriage years I expressed exactly the same sentiment, in fact knowing fine well if I were to lose the drives and enthusiasms then I too would be snookered. My own bereavement and subsequent revelation of things hidden hit me hard, in fact the hardest struggle of all has been to continue to work, forty years working alone and I sense the skeleton is picked near clean, yet each day I battle to do better. Other people, the right people would help me greatly.
I didn’t see the funeral as no tv in this house, but had radios playing around the house so as not to miss anything. The overwhelming image in my mind is when one leaves the formalities and the Service and it hits hard for the first time one is travelling back home alone, your other half will never return, never be seen again.
Action Stations! … this so-called modern world wastes so many peoples potential talents, kids are hooked on iphones, books are never consulted for the knowledge and experience contained within; everything is a fleeting image seldom retained, little depth, all a novelty, endless unsupervised frivolity of a so-called ‘social’ media. The only good point I can think is the succinct and valuable wiki page that allows one to grasp and recall a topic easily. Hence ‘Action Stations’ is the briefest yet most powerful signal that can be imagined, what an incredible prompt for us all, it reaches to the past, it reaches forward to the future.
Action Stations also allows Philip to connect instantly and pay tribute with all those men and woman no longer here that gave their lives in action.
And so the other big emotional thrill was hearing the old seafarers hymn which I actually have here on the Owen Brannigan ‘Noyes Flud’ LP, a live Aldeburgh recording of 1962, obviously written by Benjamin Britten, something unusually I immediately bought a second copy of as I know it will get played a lot, keep the best unused and stick to playing the inferior. Anyway to hear “For those in peril on the sea” etc immediately got me, on the Brannigan LP it features side 2 during the storm and Noah and his family sing to God to keep them safe; the girlfriend when she used to call heard me sing this many times, also a great tune to extemporise upon. My ancestors on both sides having strong sea connections, Royal Navy, inshore fishermen, sailmakers etc. This is why as I have maintained all my life we must all do our best, to make an effort as we are all part of a long thread and connection with our ancestors, we must never let them down.
Postscript, recently I’ve lost contact with a girlfriend of two years and the catalyst for this sudden cooling was her fifteen year old grandson utterly being unable to show any interest in anything I can offer or say, in other words in his presence and indeed his own family I cannot think of anything to say! This frustrates me mightily. I had set him a couple of worksheets a year ago at the start of the lockdown that would widen his horizons, something I gave careful thought toward ie to reveal new reveal topics, tricks with geometry and simple maths, improve sketching skills, buzzwords he would never encounter at his state school and yet this careful effort of mine, a lot of thought on my part, hoping to introduce a love of learning which in the duration of a year resulted in absolute zilch, nothing. One can often tell what others think by how their children or grandchildren react. I cannot help draw the parallel with the funeral of Prince Philip in that his whole life was developing himself and others, their knowledge, their conversation, their exploration of the physical and intellectual, yet with this particular family which are certainly not short of money they have not the wit nor realisation of what Philip stood for and actively promoted. I’m sorry to say as with many others they life in a bubble of pap, consumer junk and ephemera, Hollywood, Disney, iphones, etc etc.

Chemtrail, sky whitening, geoengineering (call it what you will) a UK diary, north east centred, second half April 2021.
Chemtrail diary, Friday 16th April 2021. Clear sky above but when on high ground mid evening the UK west coast flight path corridor displayed obvious chemtrail, i can easily see sixty possibly eighty miles without binocular aid for this. Following morning we have a ‘lightly aluminised’ sky here in Northumberland, which in my experienced guess-timation denotes ‘drift -in’ from most likely yesterdays chemtrail deposits in the west. I go back three years on this with many observations each day, I do not surmise, I do not draw in whacky theories or psuedo-notions, I merely observe and build up experience and insight.
It fits closely, at 80miles distant. My only quandary is observed altitude, at disregarding the Earths curvature they should be at 30k feet something like 30deg elevation, so can we assume curvature must have halved this to 15deg, this seems excessive, the Earth is bigger than this! I need to think on this and get more accurate numbers and times of particular passage of flightpaths.
flightradar24 will give actual details of aircraft seen, but be warned many flights are omitted, military I assume. Look back at a previous post of mine for an incredible example of flightradar24 dropping a whole load of flights one Sunday morning of obvious chemtrail activity …
postscript, heres more chemtrail, this time coastal Netherlands ie Waddenzee to northern Germany, Thursday 15th April 2021 … https://go.nasa.gov/3x5Be6a
btw if anyone from WP can read this, please please please bin this crappy new editing software / format and get us all back to the way it was, we’ve had a most abysmal non-intuitive ‘so-called improvement’ thrust upon us. I still can’t work out how to get photographs and screen capture on this new format.
Below is NASA worldview for 20th April 2021 for the North Sea east of the Humber and The Wash. Look at how long the circles and squiggles of aircraft chemtrail have remained in the air. Extraordinary. They’ve been very busy up in that sky. I cannot see the seven in parallel chemtrail laid down all at once this morning at around late morning 11:30am BST therefore we can assume when NASA Worldview presents its data for my own area at say 13:30 BST its missed the blatant seven aircraft squadron that flew at high altitude above my house. Another point, flightradar24 did not register or record any of this.
As we can see it is devoid of the image i wished to embed. Lets try again …..
Again nothing will download.
Here I have changed filters on NASA Worldview and we can see massive amounts of various chemtrail in repeated elongated loops … https://go.nasa.gov/3x5ro4x But again I cannot seem to capture or download this image, perhaps pointing a camera at the screen would work; but shortage of time etc. What i can see are four perfectly circular stacked circles 50 miles in diameter and many (say twenty to thirty off) elongated loops say thirty and fifty miles long, and west of this near the English coast are older more drifting chemtrail of similar elongated loops of say an hour or two previous. Wow …. its all true folks!
Next day chemtail diary UK 2021, yes at last i can secure screen shot downloads, new links and pics …
The elongated chemtrail loops at right appear to be thirty miles long, guessing ninety miles in circumference.
South of the above shenanigans on the same screen setting we can see matured/ older chemtrail from the same morning. All that you see in the screen capture below is chemtrail. https://go.nasa.gov/3dBtp0r
Here below are the ‘perfect’ circular stacked loops above Dogger Bank, North Sea, on the same day 20th April 2021 however filter settings altered to uppermost filter setting and hence revealing their presence. One could say “we are seeing aircraft stacked” but this cannot be a valid interpretation of these lines in the sky as for the time taken for this 45 mile diameter loop to be constructed four times over say 150 miles per loop times 4 stacked chemtrail loops we can estimate six hundred miles and at least an hour or ninety minutes to construct this chemtrail spectacle and during all this time the chemtrail has hard and fast remained fixed in the sky – this is the salient point of my arguament here, that they do not quickly fade to nothing as per regular contrail. See bottom left hand ie nearer the Norfolk coast that earlier chemtrail is spreading and creating near obscuration of what otherwise would have been a blue sky. The last few weeks of clear sky will now i think become a rare event, as per the last couple of years, remember the only time here north east UK we got clear skies was the fortnight run-up to the Royal Wedding. Those are the facts.
Same day theres lots of chemtrail over Wales and the Irish Sea, no link – go look.
…to be contd for the remainder of April 2021
Chemtrail diary, Friday 23rd April 2021. Less easy to detect in the sky above here for the inexperienced newcomer of long white streaks in the sky here in north eastern England, many are over to the west on the central Pennine flightpath and further. Chemtrail/ sky whitening all day, not too intense but creating a whitened near featureless sky which then allows it to obscure as further chemtrails are possibly released. I had a gut feeling a couple of weeks ago that soon the unmeddled skies would cease and we wld be back to chemtrails again, so far looks my guess proved right. Couple of times in some places the white sky cleared to nearly blue and is often the case BINGO theres a chemtrail! Remember, its the persistence, the duration these chemical trails remain in the air that drives me to continue my observations and blogging and on a clear day one can easily see the one-sided drift from a previously deposited chemtrail which surely should raise concern from anyone. This long duration whitening does not happen with any form of legitimate benign condensation trail. People need to think on this, I fear many have had their wits much decreased from generations of lounging and tv, pap and nonsense.
Many chemtrail flights are not available as data on flightradar24 and NASA Worldview can be suspiciously cleansed / erased of chemtrail imagery, see below, firstly on setting at bottom of panel of filters available and then second screen capture of using filter uppermost on the selection of filters at left of page. Certainly Wales and the Irish Sea received massive chemtrail activity at the time NASA Worldview collected its imagery, its a snapshot not a complete story.
The second image above does not really display the extent of the chemtrail activity observed here in north east England, but as stated previously its merely a ‘snapshot’ at a particular time. Note on the upper ie first chemtrail image that the data/ chemtrail imagery is split, we are not given the full picture so to speak. And as a day later as I post this material I’ve a nagging feeling I was getting a more obvious image when first viewed yesterday, I know flightradar24 massages data a day later, maybe same with here above, I should have known fine well this would be the case.
Chemtrail diary Sunday 25th April, 2021. At 0600 BST huge expanded chemtrail trending E-W, straight and v obvious. Increasingly a whitened sky trending to grey reaction clouds (nothing too dramatic) therefore dull all morning. Aluminised sky to mid day, afternoon increasingly bright. Sunset with obvious long chemtrails over to the west, say mid Pennine or west coast flightpath. Here below is a most ‘telling’ screenshot from NASA Worldview, in other words what are we to believe? Anway, it portrays what was observed from the ground here north east England.
Here in north east England for the umpteenth day the skies are bright blue and create a beautiful April light in my garden, just like we used to have years ago. Its amazing how many people have very poor or nonexistant skills of cognizance; recent years we have been blighted with unnecesssary chemtrail, the only blue sky period we were allowed was the fortnight run-up to the Royal Wedding, funny co-incidence one would think if it had not been preceded by daily onsaught of unwanted chemtrail. As my girlfriend tells me I see all sorts of things most people would never have noticed. At its most extreme we had dark grey ‘reaction clouds’ a few mornings (my term as with other nomenclature I have devised) with the resultant huge and not natural fast moving turmoil in the skies above, this is fact plain and simple, observable and recorded. This ongoing blog is a diary and a record of such things, full of pics and info, for the last half year I’ve wondered if being the UKs most prolific blogger on this subject has in fact guaranteed clearer skies for where I live? I put forward no theories, no lists of chemicals which I cannot personally verify or whatever, but merely record what I see above; just as with the great naturalists and self taught scientists of earlier centuries.
Realise that its most likely the phenomena of chemtrail is tied down with total use of ‘The Official Secrets Act’, merely a guess but I bet I’m right.
So this prediction hinges on two things, firstly an invited pundit onto bbc r4 a month ago that in a strange not natural manner quipped re climate change that “Well, we could whiten the skies” … it was her manner and delivery of this quip that had me wondering, not a natural manner. The other big point is that we are now being allowed bright blue skies when for the last two or three years since I started this bog we were denied them.
So it is my prediction ‘whitening of the skies‘ will be introduced as formal ‘in the open policy’ and maybe this summer (most certainly the summer after) it will again be chemtrail mayhem but I reckon on a bigger scale than so far seen.
If I’m wrong its a hundred GBP to charity, I need one year to prove this prediction and it will come a lot quicker than that!
okay I’m locking this blog post so that i cannot alter or tweak.
The term ‘analysis’ is most certainly pertinent to the circus family trump and its infamous now disgraced leader.
Embarrassment and incredulity runs high at observing how donald j trump clung to the obvious charade of it all being a fake election, so desperate at any cost to cling on to his re-election cash haul and the real knowledge that once out of office ‘his bacon is cooked’ so to speak. No human in history has lived the time it would take for the impending trump jailtime.
trump even ordered the deplorable spectacle of storming the Capitol as a last ditch thrash at self aggrandisement, outwardly and unusually silent other than cackling and whooping in private as the spectacle unfolded and doing what trump is good at …chaos.
Note how in the weeks following all the brag and bluster has evaporated to zilch, with ‘nothing to say’ which in essence is what trump was all along.
It beggars belief that a vacuous meaningless slogan and a red cap to match are sufficient to haul in so many needy and naive fools. Simplistic branding backed up with donald and ivankas talent for the ever present camera and very much stage managed rallies, note all in the backdrop are carefully selected; its all tv folks! All this adds up sufficient to hoodwink the gullible, those needy to belong to something with ‘an edge/ a take’ other than the routine, the legal or the honourable.
trump and Mao strangely have many similarities, ever thinking they know more than the experts, constantly ridding themselves of aides and colleagues, a penchant for ‘show’ meetings and discussions, projecting change but always for the worst; destruction, chaos, a total disregard of ordinary human life, economically totally inept. All the traits of Mao and trump.
The term ‘great’ as the lynchpin of trump sloganising really does not stand up to scrutiny, in one four year term trump has turned America into a crabbed stooping and hopeless old man, dirty, nothing to be proud of, shuffling toward old age.
Another trump key point is what I term his ‘janus finger pointing’ when all his wild accusations are in fact most applicable to himself, principally the term ‘fake’. This carried on to his protracted ‘stolen election’ rant, in fact most everything trump ever can utter is incorrect, a lie, the mouth of an uneducated ineducable sleaze merchant. He would have got nowhere in any professional career, unable to do the necessary reading or accumulation of knowledge, unable to listen, the attention span of a gnat and likewise zero intellectual curiosity. All of these deplorable traits are what we have observed time and time again. Schemes, many of which are coming back to haunt him seemingly an inherited trait from his father and grandfather, witness out west over a century ago, horsemeat, whores and gold.
The legacy of trump to my mind is how easily conned so many people were in joining his bandwagon, in swallowing the tv image.
There is nothing ‘great’ in turning back the needy and desperate from a country so big as the USA, I would like to think if I was in that position America would offer me a home, sanctuary. After all isn’t it the case most if not all such people will work hard and probably pay taxes, perhaps more taxes than those hell bent on massaging down every cent in their financial records a’la trump style.
The last four year of trump chaos and destruction beggar belief as if a badly written DC comic, witness the damage to the EPA, the damage to the environment, to the obfuscation and denial of climate change, the hurt and anxiety heaped upon the poor and needy. I think now its a ‘roll your sleeves up time’, to pursue and bring to justice the obviously guilty and move forward to brighter times.

For instance just a small part of trumpian con activity …..
Poor thing, how some suffer. Its annoying to think the USA is in such a sad downward spiral, trump the Faker in Chief fuelling this nastiness. Its my opinion when those two cops went out that morning resulting in the death of George Floyd their full intention was to take a black life, this was a signal to trumps base, full and clear.
Ha ha ha … excuse me … more appropriately ‘smallness’.
Can anyone be taken in with this junk of trump? Totally obviously a fantasy ride of delusion from a master deceptionist. Look folks, his total presence, effort and capability rests solely on this bar-room banter from the podium. Nudge nudge snigger snigger we are sharing the secret with donald. Yes he’s adept but its all fakery, lies, phoniness. He’s good at it, a decade of crappy reality tv shows have trained and honed this fakester to what he is today.
A delusional trickster, suiting the purposes of the crooked, the greedy and Putin.
Note his audience is highly vetted to be a potent mix of adulatory numskulls, paid lackeys and stooges. Yet as long as it gets on tv the fakery continues to work its magic.
Below we see footage of the trickster in action which triggered me to write this post ….
This morning at 0900 bbc r4 with Andrew Marr was a profoundly mixed experience, lots of hubris and earnest ‘educated’ pontification, well meaning tones but fell down badly, completely missing the point in many ways. Interesting say re Durer, his life and time, his nature observations and artwork, all basic stuff many I hope would know already, but where it fell flat and this is where it looks like Andrew Marr knows little and hasn’t done much reading if any on this is when we stepped into climate change topics; remember, the remit of bbc radio is to inform and educate.
The two big clangers from just tuning in to the latter portion of the programme were a few minutes on coral reef decline that utterly utterly avoided mentioning the algal/ bryozoan symbiosis that is 100% vital to their continuing existence with no distinct reason given apart from warming; a nonsense skirting and skimming as to why this unique portion of the living world is fast disappearing. Think – algae – diatom- invisible to the naked eye. Another elementary and sad to say basic error was never to mention the absolute importance of anything microscopic, the foundation of all marine life and hence ocean weather systems ie the climate of this planet, us, everything. Yes, theres lots of so-called educated folk on bbc r4 in fact at times it seems to be a necessity for anyone appearing on the programming output and goodness knows an absolute necessity to be employed behind the scenes by the bbc; but I’m sure there will be many clever fifteen year olds with a microscope that have greater insight than this. Too little, too late.
The other quite bizarre takeaway from this bbc r4 Andrew Marr programme at 0900 this morning was at the end a minute or two on ‘whitening of the skies’ to tie in with a book plug and attendant pontificator on such matters !! .. ha ha ha … Andrew, please read this blog numskull. Its already going on, contrary to the impression given that this is all ‘future stuff’ its already under way and has been for years. My own efforts here re chemtrail sky alteration are much diminished because it seems the UKs most prolific chemtrail recorder (me) its now made sure little gets sprayed in the skies observable above this location, thank goodness as theres lots of other things I would rather do with my life. I know where we are going and theres nothing I can do to stop it, a view held widely among scientists. Thousands of pics, a developed reporting system and NASA worldview and flightradar24 tie-in with many hours blogging / recording and all are sufficient to prove to my own mind what is going on. Its pointless to try and engage anyone in this topic of conversation, their minds are incapable, untutored and totally ignorant of what is starkly obvious; popular media too has done a good job at ridiculing folk like me. An exception to the nowadays (previous say four or five months) of clear un-meddled skies here in the north east of England was last Friday 26th Feb 2021, difficult to detect on NASA Worldview, but I’ve lots lots to photograph up in the sky, mainly south and west of here, it was a massive chemtrail afternoon. Lots, parallel lines, cross-overs, chemtrails galore remaining suspended for hours.
Have you noticed in the four year term of office trump never once was capable of an adult informed conversation. He is incapable of such a thing, no reading, no knowledge, no experience … nothing! trump bar room innuendo and brag serves as his mature and (un) evolved conversation, ‘Mr Paper Thin’ himself. I know people hereabouts that as long as one takes an ‘anti-brown’ stance or anti-Moslem, one is regarded as ‘in the fold, one of us’. Wow this is low-brow junk, well suited to the four years of now ended trump exploitation.
I am wholly justified in this criticism because the position demands and requires a person of high calibre (they can read, think, assimilate) and so the world was dealt a paper thin tv adept, totally out of his depth. Tellingly the ONLY in depth conversation for trump in four years of fakery was two hours with Putin in Helsinki, something which is without doubt the willing and criminal act of treason.
Theres such a thing as ‘standards’ ie of capability and effort, something continually lacking in the sad mockingly inept so-called presidency of trump. We are left with a covid response in tatters, a diminished cowering Fauci (shame upon him and Birx) and a long list of wrecking ball dismantlings and willfull neglect. Scientists and experts were much threatened, the EPA was emasculated, a silly wall amounting to a brainless chant, climate change was denied for a full four years, all these things are an insult to the human project, our existence and our intelligence.
trump is a freeloader, he has ridden America for four years, surely anyone can see this?
ie trump; The Great Pretender.
He’ll hang around though, pretending theres a future for him, but in reality he is a ‘Nowhere Man’. He’d better get ready for the orange jumpsuit. America needs to do this, it needs to exorcise itself of this stupidity.
I certainly am, my accounts are fully traceable, fully accountable, close to a penny in accuracy (even if I don’t even bother to put down trivial items) and I’m quite proud of the cheque I send for tax; it is as it were an ‘index of my success’. I play no games with the taxman, I make a profit and pay a slice of it for this country… its called not having any choice! You see, I don’t get around greasy individuals that know endless loopholes and dodges, that sort of person is not for me. However unlike a neighbour of mine that exhibits such indignation at paying £800 in £50k on his ! …. for many years this is far less than I provide to charity at half his income. Creep …..
Another creep is donald j trump, he too thinks that taxes are not for him, like an ill fitting suit best left in the store and rather not taken home. Well donald baby, what brought Al Capone to justice will likewise be served on donald j trump. As many commentators have stated, an orange jump suit will eventually be his permanent attire.
If a so-called (ex) President will not bend to the most basic and elementary accountability then when why for goodness sake was he ever allowed anywhere near the White House? Why is it he is still in the news cycle and still has hapless fools regarding him? trump is no politician, merely a stooge for Putin, a stooge for the crooked GOP and a stooge for his mountain of debt.
I’ve heard some terrible names applied to donald j trump but POLITICIAN is most certainly the most inaccurate and most certainly the most inapplicable that one could imagine.
Snake oil salesman, conman, pretender, fake, fool, creep yes all are applicable but never politician.
trump cares nothing for the good and betterment of the ordinary American citizen, cares nothing for the nurture and development of the USA (other than tax handbacks to his big-money backers) … even the determining of what is ‘his country’ is uncertain. Putin to donalds mind seems more credible and certain than the USA, witness donalds certainty he’d rather believe Putin than his the USA Intelligence Services, donald is quite open and vocal on the matter.
This is treason, trump is a traitor and at the most elementary level a waste of time.
America has been let down badly with four years of trump fakery and wannabe dictatorship.
As I’ve said many times, any remaining sad and pointless trump backer needs to sit down with pen and paper and with meaning and good sense try to state in their own words what it is beyond the MAGA slogan that they think … a) trump means by this and … b) where trump is going / will achieve in the years to come. I think we will find just as with the pointless MAGA slogan there is no value or worth to anything trump. People have been hoodwinked and conned. Wake up!
I’m not a Royal Watcher but I am British, I value HRH The Queen highly and care for people to do what suits them and Harrys ‘secondment’ to California (or wherever it is) …. is disastrous from any angle. His heart belongs to England the country of his mother, not in in some pointless synthetic neighbourhood at the other side of the world. Quite who is in charge of his life? I can see in his face and demeanour his connection with the British military and the vets that value him so highly, resoundingly California is not the place for Harry, he has been led astray. Meghan still does not appreciate nor comprehend what she has married into… a little bit of the Simpson syndrome here I think.
What matters in life is the work that you do, the accomplishments, theres nothing for Harry in CA, poolside sunshine is pointless. Here in GB he can provide help and support, thrill and hope to so many.
Good luck Harry, I salute you Sir, but for goodness sake get back to blighty!
ps .. Harry cites the Press, what press? Just ignore them, I’m sure he’s enough going on without needing to take any notice of newsprint.
trump got off, at least for impeachmant, this is scandalous!
trumps cotton-stick wooden doll defence team were third grade buffoons, chancers at the Last Choice Saloon, screwing up at every turn but as with the cavalry the old diehard truth deniers Lynsey Graham et al all came to the rescue, stood by defending what is illegal and criminal and needs to be put right, justice must be seen to be done.
This now needs to be turned into criminal proceedings. trump has signalled criminals of all kinds need not fear justice or the judgement and norms of morality and ethics, the stage is set for Gotham disorder just as in the comic books. trump and his stooges still cling on to the vacuous pointless MAGA punchline, none of them or any of his supporters being able to expand quite what needs to be ‘again’ or what the ‘greatness’ is they are looking for. You mean I ask ‘strong arm illegality’ as per fascism?
trumps defenders citing his now absence from the White House as voiding any requirement for Impeachment is a stupid reasoning, is mincing words and truth denial, no matter how many days or months pass after the crime justice must be served. Just goes to show as per the old German Fascist observation from the 1930’s and Second War that make sure your lies are big ones.
trump has sown what in future years will be the further shrivelling of the United States in all respects, Putin has got what he wanted. Kids are useless hung up on phones and pointless media, minorities are fearful, the stinking rich ever more stinking. Four wasted years of Climate Denial, of denial of any truth or good sense.
When a so–called president of the United States spends two hours alone with Putin in Helsinki this should be sufficient reason to be removed from Office. There must be upwards of fifty counts or a hundred counts of total dereliction of duty that likewise we would think totally extinguish any hope of this man ever getting a single vote again in the democratic process but contrary to common sense and plain sight flagrance of Office trump still attracted millions of votes! My big beef is that nowhere from his comedy caravan of sycophants and brand promoters do we hear the term democratic process. This is shameful, of course scandalous and to my mind demonstrates bias on a monumental scale, the line of ‘win / lose’ constantly being promoted as in a one-dimensional world when in fact democratic process has been seen and democratic choice has been made.
There is no such thing as winner or loser in role of President, its merely a four year term of Office for being selected by a majority from the voting populus, they have chosen the person to go ahead and give four years of their best effort, this is not a coconut-shy or a lottery or a race track event; no-one has a god-given right to be there other than by a fair and democratic process.
When the course of a country is determined by one group endlessly to shout louder or hell bent on frightening the other group then we are looking at ignorance writ large ie fascism. If this were not enough the endless trump denigration and constant mockery of the Free Press and of any open opinion or established free thought indicates again another arm of encroaching fascism. The list is endless, a pantheon of strong arm ignorance, its all tv, its all made for show and to capture the lost and lonely ie of assumed matey-ness bolstered my dubious social media, an obsession with rallies, of rambling familiarity. It is sickening and degrading to see wilful persecution be it race, gender, colour or of the blindness to the environment, the erosion of goodwill of International Relations, to shrivel on the world stage, but this is quite comical because trump the man himself is in fact a coward, of no moral fibre or integrity, is blatantly ignorant of truth and the real world, the wider world. Yet this uneducated stance is deliberate so as to mobilise a certain strata of aggrieved populace, a cynical vote-catching and manipulation, something which trump revels in.
The immortal words “disinfectant, maybe we could inject disinfectant, I’ve heard its very good, we could use light, bright light maybe on the inside etc etc ” ….. will forever demonstrate the stupidity and chaos of trump and should never be forgotten.
Its as if the White House itself will need to be disinfected, to re-engage with the wider world, to join in and contribute, to possibly once again lead, all things that trump has no idea of.
Of course trump will say he wants to run again, after all … he wants to pocket the re-election fund.
To my mind the complete trump cavalcade these last four years was very careful devised, careful gradations of chaos and insanity to devolve good sense and decency into a mire of self aggrandisement and brand promotion for the Ruling Family known as trump. In other words as with all trump Janus pronouncements to in fact bring the swamp to Washington, trump accuses ‘fake’ when he is in fact the biggest fake of all. Front of camera skills, chirring helicopter engines and greed for power and mockery of the weak being sufficient to cling on to Office.
Its all ‘tv’ to the tv family groomed for this tv role, the cast of this grim tv cartoon including beautiful Ivanka, dimples Jared, broad shouldered hardly speaking Pence, emascualted Dr Fauci, silent Birx, big money Mnuchin and a whole crew of short duration walk-ons all subservient to donald and all quite baffling!
When science, truth, knowledge, free press, good reason, care and inclusivity are thrown to the wind trampled on (to trample is a fascist thing) then most certainly this is an unwanted fascism. Not once will you be able to get a trump supporter to put into words and deliver any meaningful dialogue as to why they promote and cling to the vacuous and moronic maga slogan. Set the ardent trump supporter to sit at a desk and write in their own hand what trump stands for, where he is going and what would be the outcome. This diabolical trump Administration has been like being in a fairground or theme park, trump thinking goes no deeper; trump is the barker with his pretend testosterone.
With the latest impeachment surely to goodness all can see a distinct two pronged attack from the mindless trump brand that enabled a criminal and diabolical storming of the Capitol, Don jr being particularly odious in this from youtube footage and djt a supposed fake President we are informed delighted at the mayhem; but most certainly there were other organisers and factions employed to excite and accelerate the hapless, coralled and manipulated as a behind the scenes frenzy to save the public witnessing the worse excesses of trumpism. It wasn’t just djt or the others on the podium that whipped up this stupidity. Ever signalling the clenched fist the fascist salute, approval from the top.
postscript … bbc r4 at 5pm with the dreadful Evan Davis this evening 9th Feb 2021 should be ashamed of himself, STILL PUSHING a likely good outcome for the golden turd; that there is mileage in the values of the Capitol insurrection ! … Wow I can sense bias, can no-one else? They were to tell us of the value of the mob, how a majority were business owners, were CEO’s (!) and white collar workers and all this would lead to ‘a movement’. Excuse me but WTF! I heard it with my own ears. As with yesterday and wimbling pathetic Evan Davis’ feeble attempt at a spotlight on the needless destruction of the UK fishing industry post Brexit with disastrous EU red tape, hardly a surprise as the EU have always wanted to see the end of UK fishing. The UK fishing industry is in freefall, its a 9/11 event. And Gove the arch-jester still putting on a face.
I never want to hear the ‘trump’ name again and most certainly do not want to hear his voice, I don’t think anyone wants to hear his voice now or see the invented put on gruff look he adopted. A crummy tv fake propelled to a position that never should have happened.
Even to the end we see trumps clenched fist, to my mind the fascist salute. He will pretend theres mileage in him yet, but as usual a scheme so that he can retain the re-election fund, forever the schemer, the hustler the conman.
Look at peoples faces up at the new administration, a complete contrast to the previous miserable crew, theres work to be done, never has four years in my lifetime been rendered so cloying, so damaging having to writhe against a continual onslaught of trump lies and deceit. As ever trump demanded election fraud and in the typical Janus world of trump opposites and contradictions I think the only fraud was that any sane person ever voted trump at all !
A couple of hours after the Liar in Chief departed we hear of Voice of America having had its own trump influencer installed so as to do trumps bidding and now as the other rats fleeing the sinking ship he too at the Head of VOA is compelled to go, his staff we are informed resoundingly delighted; VOA was something often found on our domestic shortwave radio when I was a kid fifty plus years ago. No-one whatsoever laments the loss of any of them ie De Voss, Pence, Pompeo etc etc …. good riddance. Bafflingly and shamefully Mitch McConnel still defended trump until the last couple of weeks, quite happy for the useful fool to promote his agenda.
Gone are having to google ‘trump latest’ five times a day here in the UK so to leap over the bbc r4 fug of news misinformation and spin that even to the end painted trump in a better light than the facts demanded. There is no mainstream fake media as trump stupidly promulgated, merely a fake trump, shallow indolent, uneducated, incapable of assimilation or learning; forever thinking only his viewpoint is the correct viewpoint.
People need to ask themselves of the shallowness of following a slogan, to dig deeper and use their brains, of the need to ask simple questions beyond accepting a mere slogan and so to the next level and the next level again; to ask if they are being used in their sense of grievance and of wanting something better, they were being coralled to do trumps bidding as if wild ponies that don’t know any better. Witness particularly the insurrection at the Capitol, this bears out my point exactly, of the need to stop the shouting and the sloganizing and to sit quietly and to use their minds to think it all out.
I’ll never write about trump again, theres no need to, the The Rules of Justice and The Rule Law will take care of him. I can now attend to my hobbies and interests, to find time to read one of those funny old fashioned things called a (and I’ve lots of them here) … let me think what they are called … oh yes … a book!
Does it register with people the ever present clenched fist of trump, which to my mind is a fascist salute. trump also speaks yesterday the 13th of Jan of ‘our Movement’ …. uh-oh are we not supposed to be within a Democracy? Stinks to high heaven as with anything trump.
Never once have I heard trump refer to or mention ‘Democratic Process’ which of course much as with the American Constitution is just something he is completely blind toward; wilfully intentionally refusing to accept.
Michael Moore tells us that on the day of the storming of the Capitol arriving workers noticed how few security and Capitol Police were present, as if a Saturday. Michael also tells us no police helicopters were overhead, no horse mounted officers, merely a skeleton staff. And as is universally realised if these had been solely black instead of solely white the police presence and reaction would have been totally different. Meanwhile trump fixates on his tv screen and cares not one jot of any democratic process.
Footage is now appearing as to how malicious was the intent of the rioters, of wanting to lynch and hang Mike Pence, some idiots even constructing a gallows we are told. Again, I cannot fact check so this is all secondhand unverified anecdote. Media and tv suffered badly, the UK ITV footage with a reporter at the forefront was harrowing to watch. But surely the FBI was aware of the underlying cellphone traffic? Surveillance should not bother anyone if you are ‘legit’. I am all for ID cards, a onetime email penpal in the UK of high educational attainment was adamant ID cards should never happen, but why fearful! I’d be proud to possess one.
You can easily find on youtube cellphone evidence of the madness of the malicious perpetrators, horrifyingly stupid, a rabble never can accomplish anything, they should have known this from the start and most certainly know it now. Collective IQ the lowest imaginable, much like their leader. Strange also the fetish for flags, who supplied those? I think they were ‘tooled up’ by some vested interest. I also think the rabble did not seem present at the footage on trumps bizzare pre-insurrection stage performance, maybe intentionally keeping off camera. There has to be other people pulling strings, lets hope the authorities know more than they are giving away.
But again, trump using the term ‘movement’ sounds amiss, suspicious indeed.
Sitting here listening to the latest trump ‘speech’ we see a very dangerous individual, Janus double-talk, unhinged, evil; reading a script written for him but immediately he will be wishing to say the opposite.
postscript a few minutes ago yet again bbc r4 news this morning at 0745 tells us how trump will not be abandoned by the Republican Party … uh! … yes he will be abandoned, it is utterly essential for the sake of Democracy, trump right now being as welcome as a turd in a swimming pool to be crude and blunt about it.
Its obvious here in North East England to my eyes but few if any others will have made the connection. Going up onto a nearby higher vantage point proved all I needed to know.
No photographs taken actually, even NASA Worldview does not easily reveal the chemtrail shenanigans. Many, lots of chemtrail tracks in straight parallel lines trending NW/SE which are in fact amply demonstrated on NASA Worldview …. but does not show the easy chemtrail visual data that can be used to demonstrate this chemtrail crap to any interested layman.
Its my attitude now to not reveal chemtrail insights, most folk are determined not to ‘see’ what I see.
ie mayhem, chaos, destruction; the denigration of the USA.
But theres still a lot of good in America. My own view is that social media and the web is quite a dangerous breeding ground for nonsense, enabling skewed vision and shallow thought, unfortunates get together and bolster themselves, the web allowing them to fuel their sense of grievance, injustice and hurt. Its also my own view that education seems to have failed, America often has the reputation of being ‘hermetically sealed’ to the workings and cultures of the wider world.
I just never have been able to fathom why any decent person is so taken in by trump, who always was and has been proven repeatedly to be destructive and never in any way ever been fit for Office. The mantra ‘great again’ is mindless, quite moronic. Does none of the trump supporters ever consider the meaning of words, their depth, their implication and meaning, their historical or entymological precedent? It is trump himself and his unseen backers that are indeed ‘Deep State’ if any such thing exists, the Janus finger of trump accusatory zeal being in fact most pertinent to himself, ie a showman, conman, fake and merely a practiced tv shadow. Its incredible also but happens every few decades that people can be so taken in by slogans and repeated catchphrase jingoism, now there is a word that hasn’t be heard for a long time …. ‘jingoism’!
Theres is no depth to any of this catchphrase slogan rallying, nothing has substance, nothing holds an arguament or a discussion for more than a mere few seconds, as with the assailants of the Capitol, get each one on their own without their backup buddies and their ability to argue ‘their case’ will soon falter, will evaporate; all that remains is a need to belong to something, to find kindred souls, to air grievance and mutually sympathise and to engender in actual reality a quite slender sense of purpose. Witness that once the assailants had gained entry all they did was aimlessly wander around, their purpose now spent, their actions their arguament and objective were all now quite empty. In their defence I wonder to what extent they were manipulated, manipulated longterm by trumps shallow catchphrase slogan presentation style and probably manipulated more recently by hired hands to whip up stupidity.
Pence now needs to ‘get real’ and is realising there has to be a life after trump; the four years as White House Eunuch forever an indelible stain. Four wasted destructive years of environmental sabotage and unparalleled ignorance of the climate problem, of being a lackey to big business; Mnuchin another Eunuch standing on guard to see puppet donald pushed the right agenda.
So sad to see ‘rent a mob’ last night on tv, mostly without any covid procedure ie masks, but also I wonder as with all things trump as to what was less obvious, to what extent was the rabble roused by unseen forces, planted inciters, paid stooges to whip up excitement and insurrection. Many of the rabble looked quite happy, smiling as they entered the building, maybe that was the uppers, I don’t know, but once inside its obvious they were clueless as to the next step. The rabble itself displayed a collective mental age of nine year olds and really do need something other than this time wasting stupidity to fill their waking hours. Sad.
A line needs to be drawn, Comey recently attempted to calm the situation that trump will not be pursued, not charged, but after last nights insanity the heavy hand of justice and common sense needs to fall heavy and hard on the circus known as trump. To signal that America has better things to do than imbibe the trump stupidity. Immediate impeachment / 25 would define a return to sanity, to draw a correct and proper line in moving forward. It would also signal to the world that America is done with trump, a sad cascade of not speaking truth to power and that same power intentionally and wilfully choosing to ignore reality ie the facts; fresh air can now enter the room. Vested interest needs to be resigned to the back of peoples minds, with no doubt whatsoever signalled to the greedy cats at the top.
Year ’21 is going to be a bad year for anything trump, for his cohorts, enablers, backers and totally unqualified high profile sons and daughter Ivanka looking increasingly silly and malicious, a pointless hanger-on family of near zero intellect other than alley cat survival, , whoops listen carefully … was that another word from don jr? …. the embodiment of a ‘useless article’? No, he knows fine well his time has passed. We need to use some brains in future.
But of course trump cannot turn up for the Inaugoration, bone spurs are hellish, so problematic, so prone to turn up just when it is inconvenient.
A minute ago at 10:30pm bbc r4 on ‘The World Tonight’ still managed to find someone to extol the virtues (!?) of trump and knock Joe Biden. Telling us of the good trump has done in Africa etc (excuse me, Yemen?) …. and that Biden may just be ‘no good and empty’. Wow this is bias, how far have they had to scrape to find some creep to inform us of the merits of trump !!!
This beggars belief.
As I type, some scheming numskull who has no justification to occupy the White House, to have wasted four years of both Americas and of the Worlds time resides in the White House and will be ranting at the tv, phoning cronies, for ever droning on in pointless ignorant and ineducable circles; four wasted years expended on Corporate self interest and the worship of ignorance which has upended good sense, forward progress and common decency.
trump has no interest whatsoever in the general citizen, of the people that work and keep the country going.
The bbc should be ashamed of itself for the countless umpteenth time; if I were a blind person and had bbc r4 news as my principal or only news source I would be feeding on a very skewed and incorrect assessment of donald j trump.
Would Nero himself have shook his head at the donald trump callous and scheming unjust rule or perhaps given him the thumbs up applauding “Thats my boy” at trumps catastrophic deafness to the problems that rest at his feet. This is indeed a chapter of misrule, a chapter soon best forgotten, a sordid hidden agenda pandering to Corporations and the over-wealthy, inciting the bad element of society as an instrument of this misrule and steam rollering over any good regard to environment, the less well off and the real and impending climate catastrophe. So much deafness. I’ve also thought all along Dr Fauchi left a lot to be desired, too low key an approach; a quiet geniality unsuited to standing up to the crooked regime, Fauchi being so reticent, barely audible to the point of being compliant with trumps misrule. What a disaster, Birx too from what I can see.
It baffles me why so many people still voted for trump as of a few weeks ago, I can only assume there is a lack of education and a lack of reality which allows them be hoodwinked, to be drawn in by simplistic slogans and a feeling of ‘hurt’. trump couldn’t care less about anyone or anything as long as it favours trump, upholds his tv strongman image, a hollow construct of near zero education, experience or ability to hold Office, a tv cardboard man.
Quite cunningly trump has fooled (and harnessed) a lot of marginalised disaffected folk that somehow need to feel they have an alternative take on facts that can explain their hurt. Of the more energetic of them think of Maos Red Guards.
trump is indeed evil, my four years of preaching that his chaos is intentional and actually is the definition of evil unfortunately has been borne out as correct.
trump has blood on his hands, now he’s up there with all the nasty crackpots of history; trump needs to be tried at The Hague for his constant disregard and dismissal of covid 19 and climate change.
Thetrump similarity to Mao is quite uncanny, both always surrounded by ‘yes-men’, both adamantly refusing to listen to experts, both Mao and trump always totally impractical, both offering total disregard to the plight of others. Both Mao and trump ensuring a revolving door of new faces soon after to be discarded. As with gangsters Mao and trump are callous to the point of cruelty, totally blind to law and justice and decency, only allowing those to remain that are able to spout their own version of an alternative reality, the bigger the liar the more respect you’ll get from donald. Kayleigh is indeed a swamp animal. Pence the appointed White House Eunuch remains silent and bafflingly trump somehow associates with excellence, as ‘managing the covid disaster’! Oh yes I know, it was another lying pointless empty gesture for tv … thats my boy!
I was pushed to press finger to key from hearing a report on bbc r4 news a few minutes ago from the States of nurses pleading, crying, at the end of their tether at the lack of leadership and total mismanagement by the trump Administration (I deny trump upper case). This week we heard from the now hardly ever seen indolent dictator (another Mao similarity) how well Vice Pres Pence had handled the issue! Small change space-boy Pence should have at least had the presence of mind to shout out “Sir I’ve done nothing!” This is utter B/S certainly to divert, intentionally misleading and to hoodwink the gullible; yet another trump style vacuous soundbite to keep him on the news cycle, to feed his beloved tv presence. America really does have a problem in the shape of trump and his unelected, unqualified kids, they need to be packing their bags, filling their cardboard boxes; a nepotic crew totally unsuited to the priveliges and positions they have been given, yet adept at working an audience and handling a microphone, Ivanka certainly but with Jared one can’t help but feel he’s just bitten into a lemon.
When I see the leader of a nation I want to see skills, knowledge, experience, insight and leadership, not some jumped up tv pretender cum gangster, blood on his hands.
postscript, two days later the Mao analogy gains further similarity, it suddenly struck me, when one considers that trump uses his young white hoodlums as Mao used his ‘Red Guards’ ie unpoliced beyond the law terrorists backed by the man at the top. Quite a sad, lamentable tie-in between Mao and trump I think.
trump in any other position would v soon be bypassed, be discarded, couldn’t occupy the role of janitor ( my apologies to all hardworking janitorial operatives) and note I deny trump upper case.
As I’ve said for years the insults that trump throws around are most pertinent to himself (the accusatory finger plumb 180 deg in the wrong direction) trump himself most definitely being low energy, fake, swamp, lies.
trump is a gold plated example of too much wealth going badly wrong, spoilt from minute one; my own father would have used the term ‘spoilt’ and increasingly I can see that this can indeed engender a lazy, misguided inept and talentless individual. I’ve seen other examples of this lately but thats my own private affair but certainly has me more than usual focused on the term ‘spoilt’. A character spoilt, a development spoilt, no effort engendered, totally lazy both mentally and physically. What a curse money can be and in trumps case a curse on America.
trumps grandfather fed off gold prospectors and now trump feeds off America.
trump apparently has little idea if any of the meaning of words, of their potential weight, potential to do good or bad, the potential constructive purpose of dialogue, their value. He loves the tv screen, witness Netanyahu using a doctored vid to turn trump against the Palestinians and cut aid ( a signature move this, cut aid to the already struggling, hell …. he’s even massively cut aid to Americans). His more recent admissions of binge watching Fox clearly demonstrate trump susceptibility to anything on a screen and as reported yesterday in interview takes it all in like a sponge, spoilt boy Donny just does just not ‘see’ is unable to exercise any critical thought, other than bigotry and preconclusions. He stakes his position in the dirt, draws a circle with his foot and claims this is where I stand. And remember this is the nut with the nuclear codes.
Notice how both trump and Regan were/are actors, to quote Noam Chomsky “Were handed a script and read from it” though I realise here I’m loose with the facts, trump stumbles with reading, again as my Dad would have said “Never learnt his alphabet”.
Propaganda to the masses and bad thinking at the top are rife, epidemic. Some examples…
When trump tweets realise its not just his finger on the keyboard but in fact that little keyboard is a giga-powered propaganda machine with open input from any of his crooked and twisted lackeys and I include Ivanka and particularly Jared in this; the little keyboard of his phone (or more likely an office computer logged into trumps twitter feed) the most powerful meat grinder (unfortunately) in the world. Meat grinder in that trump and cohorts will quite happily sacrifice the poor and less fortunate to get past this lockdown, to mangle the truth at every convenience to trump and his constant revision of what he said the day before. At every turn, so many times trump likes to sacrifice the poor and helpless, think travel bans think border wall, all needless.
trump is the wrong man at the wrong time in the wrong position at least to all God fearing sane and decent citizens, yet to Putin trump is the right man in the right place at the right time, an unprecedented opportunity for exploitation. Of course trump is being massively exploited, I’m sure in my mind there is huge amounts of Russian money chanelled through trump activities, trump depends and needs this to survive as no American Bank will suffer him and remember the disgusting lovefest of trump and Putin at Helsinki; two hours behind closed doors, no American witnesses and no notes, trump emerging visibly shaken. This is sickening, trump indeed is skewered on Putins arm as some hapless dumb ventriloquists doll. Note trumps endless insistence that Russia did not meddle in the elections no matter the clamouring of US citizens at all levels, that Russia is his friend, that Russians have been invited and freely entered the Oval Office.
Everything trump issues as an insult or failing is in fact most applicable to himself; everything from trump is a reversal of the truth and time-won practical experience, of established institutions, of knowledge and scientific data ie climate change, the environment, sleazy tax handouts to cronies, international relations, the respect to other religions and ways of life etc etc. He courts dictators. When he points the accusatory finger “Fake news” he in fact is the only fake in the room; shouldn’t therefore everyone point back silently, good move I think and we are quite entitled to do so however the irony would be that trump would assume the accusatory finger to be in fact a fascist salute and therefore an adulation!! As usual, with trump we are in a room full of mirrors. Personally I would also encourage public booing to somehow break the bubble of the would-be fascist Emperor and his hangers on after all he is so incredibly thin-skinned.
trumps obsession and over-repeated slogan “Drain the swamp” is now utterly most applicable to himself, no great swamp existed pre-trump but now boy-o-boy trump has created his very own sickening swamp by any standards. Note handler Mnuchin always standing by rooting for Big Money, likewise Pence to ensure a fundamentalist, regressive and backward doctrine are included, to be promoted at all times.
Truth is cooked up each day according to the whim or shallow fancy of trump, as cooked up as him unfathomable tax returns or unknown educational attainment, both we assume not worth the paper they are written on if only anyone could ever find them.
Mining the moon … one couldn’t make this up! This really is an exercise of sustainable living in hostile conditions, which has been foreseeable for the last couple of years, such as the dreaded impending methane release and subsequent chaos of interconnected climate feedback loops running out of control from the efficiency / efficacy of surging methane levels. Its not CO2 that will kill us but the much more damaging (say x120 fold) and much faster acting methane release in its three forms ie microbial from thawing permafrost, methane deposits trapped within the strata capped and held in place by permafrost and probably worst of all thawing subsea hydrates for instance the East Siberian Ice Shelf. These are huge areas, far bigger any one of them than Europe.
My opinion is that there is a limit to the gullibility of trumps so-called voter base, like most things of his its smaller than he says; soon trump fans will tire of the trump spiel and media hogging, even the most unthinking zombie-like adorer of the trump stance must surely quite soon see the light, the obscuring fakery of trump.
Has anyone realised the huge places recently constructed to die and equipped with respirators, a life of lockdowns, the end of personal freedom as of cv-19 are exactly what we will need when climate change kicks in hard? Which it will, the impending catastrophic increase of methane being the real ‘biggie’.
From my UK standpoint and I think near universal is insufficient regard taken with care and health workers, these special people need special treatment in safer distancing from family members and public, to be cordoned off in effect. The PPE scandal will not go away, neither the scandal of care home deaths being kept out of the cov-19 death toll. The early hours health and care worker shopping hour needs to be redefined as a means of increasing bio-security, so far no-one is taking this angle seriously enough. This would allow economies to loosen up and get a few more contributors working again. Issuing all care workers with a badge is exactly what one would have decided is the first step in identifying such workers and hey presto was announced a fortnight ago. Funny how this can be redefined as a means to separate out care and health workers from the general population, which I think would be utterly stupid not to do so, yet no-one specifically mentions this. this in some ways silly lockdown needs to be engineered more intelligently.
In essence we need to be more aware to separate the health and care workers from the rest of the general population, the latest tragic news of two sisters, both care workers to die reinforces the need to do this.
Quite seriously, why has no-one drawn attention to the lunacy of having a beard at this time, I would imagine a virus catcher par-excellence!
Postscript, nice to hear my words echoed and the exact words indeed as utilised by Polly Toynbee a few hours after I wrote them, great minds think alike! Likewise two days later interesting to hear Nick on bbc r4 this morning echoeing my particular sentiment that nice sounding words are useless when in fact in reality things don’t happen or the PPE isn’t delivered and the cv-19 testing just is not happening as they portray. I would term this a disjoint of delivery. The latest disaster is a recall for botched cv-19 testing, also the NHS and Government seeming to be ignoring the offers of PPE manufacturing and lab testing capacity in the UK. One couldn’t make this up!

Heres Amy Goodman with Noam Chomski …
As Noam Chomsky tells us trump is indeed v v clever.
… and others too, all in parallel. These are called chemtrail and/or geoengineering and just about every day they are easily found on NASA Worldview, a source that in my experience will only reveal say a third of what is actually happening in the skies above, this is due mainly to when the data is collected and its inability to reveal smaller lower status chemtrail. In other words it misses completely anything outside of its data collection timeframe, ie chemtrail before dawn, chemtrails early to mid-morning, chemtrails after lunch, chemtrails mid afternoon, late afternoon and evening. All are possible chemtrail occasions. Meanwhile the air will be aluminized (my term) and again luckily is revealed on Worldview as a particular shade of grey. Areas to see chemtrail are Bay of Biscay, northern Spain, coastal Portugal, Mediterranean, Italy, Adriatic, Black Sea, mid and northern mainland Europe, Baltic, Denmark, North Sea, UK and Ireland. Can you see the pattern, a loop. Some I guess are scheduled flights, some are perhaps special purpose, I’m not sure, some are random some are straight line / corridor. You can see them on tv, on property advertising, holiday snaps etc etc. I’ve seen all types up in the skies here but since I’m now the UKs most prolific chemtrail blogger it looks to me that my own skies ie cone of view will be relatively low-level near absent of chemtrail. Realise general media does a good job at ridiculing chemtrail folk such as myself.
Lets look at those three hundred mile long chemtrail off the coast of Ireland and southern England today Saturday 18th Jan 2020.
Theres lots of chemtrail activity, mostly these days I’ve other things to do than sit here and list it all, but please explore my previous posts, theres more than four hundred posts here on this blog.
Its most unusual for me to sleep past 7am … 8am is way too late, an initial quick look out of the window and yup its a chemtrail day three or four being easily seen, twenty minutes later camera in hand I go outside and all signs of chemtrail are obscured with even the addition of lower brown ‘reaction clouds’. I had seen the chemtrails but so very quickly have becoming hidden. If I was to recall the previous chemtrails that morning to anyone they would think I am nuts as now there was nothing to be seen other than an all pervading grey fug. Yesterday produced two very distinct bands of chemtrail on NASA worldview and in person the sky contained 50% chemtrail haze / cloud effect formed from chemtrail, we were on the edge of it at this location.
Therefore in a situation as this it would be hopeless to ever try to point upwards and explain anything. Certainly at first rising yes obvious and distinct chemtrails, within 20 mins all obscured. Drat!
Chemtrail diary contd, May 7, 2019.
However the day did reveal chemtrails throughout. At 0930 gaps appear in the cloud and sure enough three v distinct ‘across the sky’ chemtrails at three points of the compass, lower brown reaction clouds remain, its been a fast changing sky, chemtrails can do this. Good, this feeds my need to gather evidence of chemtrail geoengineering so that others possibly may stumble upon this blog and learn from it.
All day it is chemtrail and mostly obscured sky. Several times the lower cloud cover thins a little and chemtrail can be seen and/or the higher chemtrails cast shadow onto the upper surface of the cloud fug and vaguely can be made out as chemtrail geoengineering. NASA worldview looks horrendous too. Its been a big chemtrail day in northern Europe.
From my DQA reporting system I rate this day DQA 9,7,7 AS ie duration 9/10,quantity ie per hour 7/10, affect 7/10 ie AS meaning altered sky. In other words quite a crappy and significant chemtrail day. And mostly no-one noticed, nor their curiosity or indignation aroused in any way whatever.
NASA worldview has lots to show, posted after the photographs for the day.

And remember for most of the day once past mid morning much of the continuing chemtrail / geoengineering activity was continuing relatively unseen above chemtrail induced lower cloud cover.
That is not fairy-dust.
As usual we know fine well there will be youtubes of chemtrail above Donegal, Londonderry, Antrim.
Note I detest the term ‘conspiracy theory’ a much over-used term to ridicule someone like me that sees in the sky things disturbing and will not let it pass un-noticed. general media has done a god job at destroying any sensible debate. All I ask is for people to take note daily in what is happening in the sky above, to develop a questioning mind.
trump was referred to as ‘The President’ and within minutes as ‘Leader of the Republican Party’. One can throw all manner of words and insults toward donald j trump but one could never call him a politician!!!
This pro-trump bbc r4 unquestioning acceptance of the most lazy ill-educated and hapless encumbant of the White House with great manner to deceive and corrupt all he touches has for four years been presented in a most unreal light of bias from bbc r4 ‘Today’ morning news and interview programme.
We also heard a top-bod interview with facebook this morning (re trumps ban) and bbc r4 totally incapable of receiving as a ‘given’ that trump incited violence, encouraged ‘the wrong sort’ and generally we are informed revelled in the Capitol Jan 6th breakdown in Law and Order. A shouting mob and violent too, creating great fear and in fact injury and death. As one commentator remarked, imagine the crackdown if these were predominantly coloured folk; its a fact from transcripts and witness statements of security and police on duty that day that all security and awareness seemed deliberately to have been ‘wound down’.
What these hapless ‘grasping for a cause’ individuals and demented ‘rent-a-mob’ should realise is that the path into the Capitol is via the voting ballot, not by screaming, paramilitary attire and creating great fear in anyone not part of the rampaging rabble, its called democracy.
I think there was more ‘organisation’ went into this than is currently being discussed. And I think we know from what direction that came from; trump-the-destroyer.
Ironic, we have iphones and sophisticated cell phone technology yet all it has accomplished in this case is a clarion call to assemble these dangerous thugs, it all compounds to a scene no different than two thousand years ago. Later footage released of the ‘horned individual’ reciting some mumbo jumbo psuedo christian incantation / prayer in the Capitol was a most accurate portrayal of how skewed non-thinking and ignorant the whole escapade had become.
An end result of no substance and no way forward, just like trump himself.
I am a practical man and come from a long line of practical men.
trump is none of this, he can grift but as using the term in its British sense he cannot graft. He cannot roll up his sleeves and get ‘stuck in’. It would be a preposterous scene, his glaring orange make-up, the bizarre hair-do going in all directions…. knock-kneed impracticality.
So that is one measure of a man.
We can also surmise he is utterly unknowledgable, disconnected and uninterested in anything to do with the natural world (think climate change, and a gutted EPA) … unless of course its … a) exploitation, extraction and or to minimise environmental controls as pushed by some of the more sick of his backers and of course … b) trumps only realisation of the natural world being a golf course, the rest to him is ‘dirt’.
Therefore trump clearly displays the impracticality of Mao with the arrogance of baby born into greed, wealth and dishonesty (think Northern Counties).
To slightly mis-apply the term … trump is a pompadour!
