Dominic Cummings …

What a nasty opportunistic individual with his skewed vision and nail scratching desire to be somehow kept in the news cycle. He’s bitter to the extreme and hurtful to others – whats new – this is Dom Cummings! It is his nature to be so, to ‘have the angle’ no-one else can see, to dismember to turn upside down. Reminds me of very clever sixth formers trying to impress the girls, lots of noise and ‘cleverness’ but in the end of little value.

I think we often get the face we deserve and Cummings bears this out, is most unattractive. In simple terms ‘he has a screw loose’ if not several … always able to promulgate ideas as if known in depth, the glib glibber, but I wonder at his real depth, perhaps just a clever bod, arguamentative and ‘on the make’. He’s been too close to power to let go of it now and in fact wielded far too much influence and policy as unelected and the close advisor of Boris. Why did Boris allow him so much influence, to suffer and encourage him ?

Dom the clever sixth former impressing all around with his desire to be known as the cleverest man in the room, trashing all established norms, de-rating everyone and everything in sight. Again, I find him repulsive, I’m glad I never knew him. It seems so out of character of him for to now be so concerned at loss of life, in his day to day dealings with people his manner is dire, he certainly cares nothing for their feelings. Many if not all in the Commons must dread his presence.

We remember them sadly but looking at the death toll remember that many that died were old people, already so vulnerable, but this is reality, crap happens and must be realised when looking at the numbers; we cannot cheat the effects of age or the weakened old state we will all enter, whether birds animals or humans.

It was hearing Dom Cummings on radio that really made me so sceptical of this desire to pour out all the minutae from fifteen months ago, obviously it was in some ways a different world then, we muddled through, what else can be expected. All I needed to know was in his to my ears a painful delivery, the phoney concerns, the pauses, all telling us so very much more than he realises. He’s clever alright, tricky, an ace manouverer. Pre-Machiavellian or post-Machiavellian take your choice, but in my minds eye I see as if Dickens at his darkest, Mr Cummings stalking the dorm with cane in hand all too ready to inflict pain.

Dom Cummings in his dire outpourings today has capitalised on hindsight to a ridiculous degree. Yes mistakes and a lethargic response created problems and the PPE shortage really should not have happened but considering we were asked to conform to and accept totally new concepts with constricting lockdowns, its my opinion we did okay, outside of war this was as dire a sea change one could imagine, no bombs dropped, we were generally still okay and infinitely lucky as compared to war. Everyone in this country and in Government were being asked to accept completely and with total adherence a totally different way of spending our days. My heart bleeds for all those small businesses, self employed, those on the fuzzy margins, all the struggling black economy workers, the lonely and infirm during all this. The analogy of ‘at war’ is sometimes drawn into the arguament with covid, but goodness me being at war was full of mistakes and errors, yet somehow in an ad hoc fashion we muddled on in a muddy messy muddle. Things have to be done, decisions made, we move forward each day. Ask my grandfather, on a minesweeper in the English Channel with hundreds of evacuees from Dunkirk then to be hit by ‘friendly fire’ and only three survived, swam to France.

I often had the feeling with Matt Hancock his hands were tied, too many to appease, there was a back story we were not allowed to hear; of course there was, its called democratic input and a Cabinet of high stressed colleagues that somehow need to be melded into agreement and with bevys of scientists and modellers adding their data, noise, and opinion. I remember that the 2001 foot and mouth was handled badly, way too much pain and suffering heaped onto both animals and farmers and as if the gold standard 100% credible report from the Duke of Northumberland in 1968 was totally ignored, modellers this time got ahead of themselves and as far as i can see inflicted misery. As the Duke and all practical farmers realised bury local and in quick lime, no transportation, no need for contiguous cull, no ridiculous inefficient pyres. Mr Ferguson! But also we must realise the EU controlled our response during that 2001 foot and mouth, its a blessing and a tragedy avoided with covid yr 2020 we were free of EU control.

A major PR disaster was the term ‘herd immunity’ that was freely aired at the first few weeks of covid here in the UK; yes I can see its meaning but it sounded bad. I was also very sceptical of input from Prof Ferguson, as I remembered him from the foot and mouth cock-up twenty years ago. Maybe I’m wrong, I’ll have to read further.

The biggest disgrace and being led along the garden path during this covid 19 outbreak was the Dido Harding track and trace fiasco; we are talking literally billions of pounds, where the heck did it all go, there certainly needs to be an enquiry. After the tiscali foul-up during her tenure I would have thought she must be kept from any systems and software! When we read ‘billions were pumped into it’ … then where the heck did the money go ?

okay, more to follow perhaps …

bbc r4 news bias…

… around 0800 BST here in the UK yet more incredulous bbc pro-trump bias from the rolling news programme BBC Radio 4 – Today, 06/05/2021

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.

Analysis of trump…

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.

Truly … this is greatness!

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 ….

climate change misinformation, time drag ….

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.

Note they never let trump talk to an adult …

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.

Its called accountability…

.. and I hope everyone is fine by this.

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.

Is this the failure of education?

The scandal of it all…

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.

bbc radio 4 bias…

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.

Needless to say I’ve had to turn the radio off.

Its too quick …

… the pace at which events are unfolding. Thank goodness James Mattis and Obama and others can get word out at the culminating insanity of a trump so-called ‘administration’ …. maybe more like a mal-administration that degrades humanity, the constitution and husbanding the environment.

We have now got into the area of Orwells ‘doublespeak’ where good is bad, right is left and its always getting better (not), the screen is everywhere (tho the latter is not trumps fault). The likes of Kayleigh Macenany beggar belief, we’ve seen it before but I just cannot understand that after three years of dirt from trump anyone whatsoever could defend the total disappointment known as trump, mr tv clip himself.

Likewise the utter crass upturning of truth and fact which seems to be a code of conduct of Republicans that still persist in accepting and encouraging a false message of the merits of their beloved d j trump. Note I deny trump upper case. What drives them, corporate greed, a scramble to buy up bankrupt agribusiness, are they so very obsessed with naked self interest?

trump didn’t know what to do with a Bible, in fact if ever an inhabitant of this planet needed guidance it is donald j trump and his coterie of scrambling hangers on. Very true that total power totally corrupts, Roy Cohn the master of nastiness himself would be very delighted to see how his protégé has turned out.

Worrying to see Genl Mark Milley step into the limelight (or the gaslight) …. I’d wondered who this totally on edge individual could possibly be a few months ago at his first widespread media exposure, standing behind trump nervous as could be imagined, primed and already on hyper-drive! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_A._Milley

Is trump a useful puppet? Who are his puppet masters in the US? Certainly Pence and Mnuchin are the first to come to mind. We know fine well he is in up to his chest beholden to Russia, quite easy to see in trumps lack of desire to investigate the queasy Russia connection, the two hour alone at Helsinki, the chumminess with Russias Kysliak, etc etc … it all stinks.

To dominate the news, the media, online, is trumps agenda, an agenda to stay in the White House at all costs; therefore corporate greed, self interest and the greedy cosy up to him. trump delights that something has come along to take attention away from worsening economic problems and from trumps quite hopeless and useless covid-19 mis-management.

Its true to say whatever trump says in fact the opposite is the actual truth. He slams and points to the media as fake when he himself is the fake, he derides people of ability and learning whilst he himself seems stuck at the level of a ten year old, everyone is a liar whilst only donald j trump has the truth!

Everyone must read and learn from past times of difficulty and danger, per Dr MLK  “Be true to what you said on paper” … The Constitution. History, to read and learn from it is vital at this time.
