I didn’t want to blog again but reading tonight of trumps piquish evil machinations to make life difficult for the US Postal Service is really quite sordid; re mail voting for the forthcoming presidential election. As has been proven, everything trump says is in fact quite the opposite, ie his mantra ‘drain the swamp’ has in fact meant HE BRINGS the swamp to Washington, to the White House. Likewise his mantra ‘fake news’ in fact indicates he himself ie trump is the fake.
What worried me a couple of weeks ago was the Fox interview and trump saying “I’m not a good loser” inferring he may not leave the White House voluntarily which totally insults and abandons any idea of democracy. Sorry to say this ‘sunshine’ but you are only in the WH as long as the population of the USA thinks fit. The “I’m not a good loser” also contradicts any objective view of donalds life in that apart from the cossetting bubble of inherited wealth he is in fact a TOTAL LOSER.
trump never ever accepted that he got into office with a Faustian pact that his crooked backers the Republicans were ‘prepared’ to accept as long as it got them into the Top Seat, however sordid. They would have backed a chimpanzee as long as it got them the win. Think: Russia.
The evil of trump is what he has done, endless wrecking-ball rollbacks, as Biden says reducing America to a laughing stock, reputation in tatters, uncouth, inknowledgeable, endlessly ignorant, a mafia style family ‘grab all and fck the rest’ mentality. It seems in trump world (no surprise) the five second media byte and whirring helicopter blades are the only reality he will allow you.
Presidential – NO; a tinpot hapless ruler – YES.
Get rid of him.
And all the while the climate problem never gets to be addressed and the poor and brown are ever yet more anxious.
Mr tv himself known as donald trump increasingly exposes his callous disregard for all good and decent values and his disdain for ordinary folk ie the general populous. Waving a Bible in front of a church pre-cleared of meddling and unwanted ‘undesirables’ (which in donalds and ivankas eyes have no meaning, no relevance, regarded as worthless) … as a stage managed photo-op for as all that mattered to ultra narcissist trump and ivanka his script writer and stage manager in attendance for daddy, probably an even more extreme version of daddy himself if truth be known. As with everything trump its all just a tv show. Its all he knows, is all Ivanka is trained for, has experience of and is all that matters to them, the stage managed photo-op. We can assume this is what occupies ivankas thoughts that’s of course when she is not in endless hours of hair, makeup, clothes, beauty etc etc.
Three years have been wasted with trump and years more will be needed to re-install all the wrecked safeguards and legislation that trump and his dark devious lobbyists have thrown aside ie the gagged and dismembered EPA. The trump family and suchlike are indeed fascists, fakery at its height
His southern lobbyists wrapped in the guise of so-called Christians are indeed shameful, think Mitch McConnel etc … southern oil money and extractive industries sure are too big for their boots, hence installing overseer Pence to ensure their vested interests are foremost on the agenda; otherwise useful idiot trump would have not got the backing to succeed. Interesting programme re this a couple of evenings ago on bbc r4.
Signals have emerged, Biden on needing to use the military if needed to oust the truth denier trump and entourage when the results come in, and two Generals stating they will not deploy the army on the streets at trumps behest. This is a sort of coded message, men if need be collectively refuse trumps insane wishes. Genl Mark Mulley twisting in anguish at being so obviously stage managed, set up for a fool, thank goodness he has publicly admitted things are wrong.
Its hard to believe such reckless crowds assembling at this time of covid-19 volatility and climate change seems practically forgotten about.
… 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.
He says he is taking hydroxychloroquine, which must mean he probably is not.
The kidder, the conner, he never stops.
Today I drew from my bookshelves ‘Elizabethan Handwriting 1500-1650’ by G E Dawson and L Kennedy-Skipton, on p.30 is a manuscript from 1611 in which the writer of the example text quotes Hermes ie
‘Three things are to be pitied and the fourth not to suffered …. a foole sett in authoritie’.
Most certainly djt has a cleverness which in effect is tantamount to evil, but as a useful cleverness …. never!!
Has anyone else noted trump looks to be wearing a corset underneath his shirt ?? I’d bet good money I’m right.
Its all tv folks, its all a con.
*** I may never blog for quite some time, or I possibly ever again, no buzz from it lately. Its a lonely activity and then ones efforts lost into the ether … wrong … the web!
I’ve done enough re climate change and the downright evil trump, my own curiosities and satisfactions need to be nurtured, increasingly I am sceptical of the digital intrusion into our lives. Even a few days of learning to write a cursive script have fascinated me (ie ink and plain steel nib) and created a curiosity and a developing skill that will remain I hope for my lifetime. The web is cold and so very distant from true human interaction.
Theres no reason for me to be here posting links and info these days. The worlds media lampoons and highlights the trump idiocy, or more accurately the trump deception and power play. trump is indeed clever, a sort of very much non-academic mobster savvy cleverness that is in fact difficult to pin down.
I’ve been away from news and media for two days and the search results for trump latest has shocked me, the con-man in chief is so far down the tubes as to be near unfathomable or more properly near incredible in his twistedness. Up is down, right is wrong, bad is good …… straight from DC Comics.
I wish trump the illest of luck as may a million or ten million others both in the States and countless others around the globe wish this sad and useless imposter. Wow, were simple folk taken in … and of course so many dirty Republicans and hangers-on lapped up the instant glory (and power). Integrity and morality need a more current currency.
It baffles me how short sighted the bods at the top really are, I mean the UK Government. BBC r4 radio news this morning again carries mention that highly qualified ultra-competent laboratories in Uni, research, contract testing etc are all available to ramp up cv-19 testing yet multiple contacts and phone calls from Professors and Doctors in their own field produce nothing in return from the NHS or the UK Government; we are so woefully challenged as how this virus is being handled. I think when we view retrospectively the double scandal not using the myriad of labs available outside of the NHS (which I think possibly can often be in advance of the NHS) and the also incredulous scandal of NOT examining and collating deaths in care homes or at home to achieve more accurate data of lives claimed by the virus. Aiming to deliver a competent speech as say from the Head Boy is NOT the same as the actual hard reality of PPE in the hands of those that need it. Maybe we need a Lord Beaverbrook? The only good thing you can say is that our only resort, social distancing was pushed forward as utterly essential. But has anyone ever yet seen trump or the creepily quiet and distanced Fauci wearing simple handgloves? … scandalous!
This terrible time highlights the lag from daily pronouncement to actual on the ground delivery, such as PPE which contrary to podium pronouncements is not to hand for those at the sharp end. And I wonder if that recent Russian and Chinese PPE was delivered to those that needed it or in fact hoarded by Jared?
All care workers and those in contact with cv-19 patients need to be tested every couple of days, these are ‘hot-beds’ of infection no matter how hard the staff follow as many precautions as possible, that’s of course if they have anything near the PPE ther really need, I mean full face gear, forced ventilation head protection (ever heard anyone mention this?). Wow, as I type this we hear someone from the USA (Prof Paul Rohner sorry I missed the name bbc r4 08:46) saying exactly this idea ie to harness the Universities, to intensively test the hot beds of infection. My thoughts exactly. I also think all in healthcare, care homes etc need their own special distancing, their own family members, these people need to be treat and manouvered as the potential super-spreaders these really are … to NOT test say daily is madness.
News from across the pond and as usual presented uncritically and even as ‘normal’ of the continuing, worsening trump disaster as is typical bbc r4 news stance. At 10pm ‘The world Tonight’ at least has some ‘teeth’ and offers a clearer view, a valuable radio programme. In the old Soviet era photographs people were airbrushed out of the picture to alter history, trump does it by merely denying his previous words and actions. I had thought trump was basically a puppet but these last few days I’m more inclined to think he actually does come up with all this crap mostly from himself. At least his unpredictability is predictable, forever casting himself with hindsight as the ‘stable genius’ and reworking his message at whatever shallow whim drives him that day. We can assume now that those around him really are the dregs, Mnuchin, Miller, Kushner etc and with the White House Eunuch Pence in attendance. Even with Anthony Fauci he really does seems to have trawled for and ineffectual yes-man. These really are sick white folk. Winess jareds outburst a few days ago when questioned as to the Governments own massive stocks of PPE when America struggles …. “They are for us” …. wow yet again a DC comic adventure.
For trump to announce withdrawl of funding to the World Health Organisation is cruel indeed, hell-bent (an apt term if ever) at Trumpian disruption and bile. Witness Yemen, tragic. Its again the trump style, max disruption, max cruelty; its got trump written all over it. To be so stingy and pretend ‘he has a view on anything’ (quite laughable were it not so cruel) is all reality show smoke and mirrors, which is all trump knows apart from conman crow-barring of perceived enemies and debtors; he came from the Roy Cohn School of Charm and Grace. Thinking about it, this is when Sean Hannity and Fox could do the nation a service and turn this monstrous Clown to a more sensible approach, come on Sean n Co …. help the Free World!
Regardless of whether he has just washed his hands (I’m sceptical) … he should not be touching anything. Funny how certain people get to the top!
A case in point is d j trump, how did he get to the top! The Guardian quotes trump as pronouncing he has no time or truck with I quote ” But we don’t have time to go and say, ‘Gee, let’s take a couple of years and test it out, and let’s go and test with the test tubes and the laboratories.’”
‘…the test tubes and the laboratories’.
No-one has seen trumps educational record or tax record and one cannot help but wonder of whatever was presented would be trumped up, to be phoney, fake, fake as in most of what trump is associated with. trump was and is ineducable, incapable of learning very much. Dictators were often ignorant, trump is merely just another; but how sad he influences and controls to such an extent, we now read that trump has forbidden Fauci from saying anything. trumps over-bearing ignorance surely should never be tolerated. Every misdemeanour, possibly many each day further strengthen this clown.
Surely there can not be a single individual remaining in the US of A that would vote for trump.
His callous indifference, surreal return to ‘snake oil salesman’, must surely brand the ‘Retard in Charge’ as the most unsupportable so called ‘leader’ anywhere anytime. Well okay, maybe Nero was a bit of an indifferent twat and maybe some Biblical / Egyptian types were a low point; Hitler, Mao … yes all disregarded the ordinary folk.
trump drags down the world, dumbs down, clogs up and hinders the work of self-effacing people of integrity. HOW MUCH PATIENCE must the USA and the world extend to this clown, this buffoon, this snake-oil salesman, wanna-reality star, conman ….
trumps ‘invented wisdom’ knows no bounds.
Its quite nasty up there at the WH, look at Jared, his dad done for voting fraud so daddy in law enumerates him as numero-uno adviser! Yes indeed if crooked and low brow is your favoured stance.
With the cv-19 we do indeed see the folly of allowing trump to lodge at 1600 Pennsylvania.
Not much here northern UK in March but dribs n drabs, at lockdown a noticeable absence of chemtrail for days, but now these last few days its back to normal. ie today Tuesday 7 April 2020 chemtrail in the sky, as for three days now an aluminized sky which to my mind is obvious in its being so un-natural and now today its back to high alt long straight lines that do not fade away as conventional contrail should do so, mostly haze broader and add to the increasing haze in the sky. I photograph them but energy and time for this is decreasing. What is it that people don’t get? How many instances will it ever take?
So, firstly I can see say two or three lines in the sky per hour and now mid afternoon the NASA Worldview images are available and voila heres what we see ….. ie chemtrails.
Everything over sea in the above is chemtrail, the colour is an instant give-away. Click on the link and expand to see some detail. NASA Worldview is only good for say a third of what happens up in the sky in the morning, otherwise it does not record or register anything else. Those long chemtrail lines are from NASA sat image a hundred miles long, this in itself proving that chemtrail ARE NOT conventional condensation trails. all th other hazy material is older chemtrail, either drift-in or from a few hours previously. We get it all the time here, one develops a ‘knack’ and experience from the last two years of taking notice.
Also from the above visit over toward Denmark over the North Sea (link only) … https://go.nasa.gov/2RlxN8l …. now, what the heck are those lines in the sky?
A screen capture I have so far not posted is from coastal Portugal (an often visited chemtrail victim along with Spain, Biscay and the English Channel etc) and so from Feb 2020 lets take a look off coastal Portugal over into the Atlantic …
