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.
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 …..
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.
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.
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.
It so bugs me near half of America voted for trump, something I would have thought never possible, considering trump blindness to the struggle of ordinary people, to catastrophic climate change, to the need for intelligent and considerate International Relations, to the humane handling of the needy and homeless, the list is endless. Imagine, trump the Great Helmsman steering us through the turbulent rapids of life as what was the leader of the Free World !
With trump the analogy with The Great Helmsman himself Mao is quite uncanny, both utterly self obsessed, both utterly impractical and remote from real life. Living in an unhinged fantasy, all brand all ‘image’.
Theres nothing I’m saying here I haven’t said before, the absurd roller coaster of endless hirings and firings, the total lack of listening and learning from experts, all these were also the flaws of Mao. Once he is extracted from the White House it would be good and proper for him to be tried at The Hague for crimes against humanity, perfectly in order as the two parallel counts of climate change denial and covid 19 are denial and mismanagement on a catastrophic scale, a wilful absurd mindset from a two-bit fool propelled into public notice by excess wealth, a crummy reality tv show (looking back so VERY STAGED and PHONEY) .. and a perfect actor as a useful mouthpiece for his Masters. I also think we can draw another parallel with Mao, Russia was quite happy to see China make an utter fool of itself with the useless cruel years of The Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution and another analogy likewise with the use of slogans.
So why is near half of America still seemingly clinging to the idea of trump and his carousel of installed yes-men and family members? The nightly lies?
It baffles, bewilders and saddens me to see grown people cling to a slogan, as if make America great (again) can stand any scrutiny … as if what period you would wish to go back to other than the present … the 1930’s ?? It also baffles me trump on the face of it gives China such a hard time, yet ‘Business America’ has ridden on a wave of low cost imported goods from China that have created incredulous profit margins and incredible $$££ profit.
That word ‘great’ grates upon me … a great idea? a great time? a great performer? … the poet Ezra Pound said “Great is a Victorian word but I wouldn’t want to be without it”. Yes, what indeed does it actually mean?
A great blunder !
I think its more like A Great Nightmare under the days of Mao, oops sorry, I mean trump.
If such a thing exists, trump surely has to be the figurehead of such a so-called ‘Deep State’, trumps Janus style pointing finger always points directly to himself. Hence the terms fake, swamp, sleepy, crooked, deep state are all manifest primarily essentially in trump, with his vested interest unaccountable backers, cohorts and sycophants. Most certainly trump lies comfortably with Deep State, its been apparent from day one, ‘Who put him up there’ and ‘Who pulls his strings?’
Remember this is a rich kid , hardly able to read, no respect for anything, constantly failing, of near zero academic ability and tutored by Roy Cohn. Grandaddys bags of gold from the Yukon fostered all this, whores and hotels. Brag and swagger are the pasteboard mask.
It baffles me how anyone either believes his crooked disjointed nonsense or can present themselves in public endorsing his destructive incompetent chaotic tenure. trump is the epitome of callous disregard. Witness Kayleigh McEnany. They seem to want to be along for the ride, the aftertaste will indeed be bitter.
Very clever that trump can fool with his breezy low vocab delivery, a crude untalented reality-show ‘actor’ tailor-made for vested interest to project its values and work their abominal desires, ie witness EPA dismantling, scientists frightened to speak out, protection of environmental issues all gone, sadly Dr Anthony Fauci a far too timid individual. Witness also the negation of womans choice, disregard and destruction of human and civil rights, of black equality. Just as with the tone of his detestable inauguration speech trump has indeed followed through, in a sense kept his promises, his ‘Deep State’ backers wanting us back to the 1930’s … a 1930’s that also includes vast shifts on the political map; the rise of overpowering Fascism, the criminalisation of peaceful democratic protest and the horrors of war.
Its all about lies, of fooling people, bluster and brag, the tv soundbite… trump is a conman quite gifted and with a lifetimes experience of this.
But trump is cleverer than he seems, can assimilate a nuanced plan, a nuanced trajectory and as heard a few weeks ago may not leave the White House when voting should result in the end of his so-called Presidency. Quoting ‘I don’t like losing’ …. this beggars belief … this is a Democracy not a tv show!
trumps realisation to dominate the news cycle is crude but effective.
trump is outlawing any peaceful civil protest, witness the recent Bible waving photo-op on a street of peaceful protestors cleared with tear gas.
trump enjoys his ‘militia’ … in other words conventional fascist thugs.
This whole scenario could not have been better planned or nuanced in its fine graded onslaught against common sense, decency and democracy. Somewhere, maybe in Jared or Ivankas office theres a huge flowchart on the wall planning out all these steps away from Democracy, the insults, the sleights all finely graded.
Luckily trump throws up sufficient gaffes for us to get an idea, to map his views and mindset. He couldn’t care less about all the coloured lives lost with covid, of police bigotry, of incoming asylum seekers that will most likely work hard, or of overseas struggle such as Sudan, Palestine and Yemen. Its a trump trait to cut aid. Cruelty and polarisation are a trump trait.
For example, mail and air parcels going into the US have hiked 50% in one single price rise a couple of months ago, and are abysmally slow, this is not covid, it is trump Protectionism.
Here in the UK the ‘bent’ and to my mind deliberate intention TO NOT criticise trump does indeed beggar belief. BBC r4 news certainly on the daytime news cycle is peculiarly pro-trump, seeming not to want to disturb or upset His royal ‘Highness’ !
The Daily Mail so-called newspaper is a tawdry useless thing, more akin to a gossip sheet with its main occupation seeming to be girls in bikinis. And this morning online we read in the Daily Telegraph the following absolute nonsense ….
Surely ‘flaws’ are not the correct interpretation of outright trump incompetance, inability and callous disregard, its more ‘total outlook and destruction of Democracy’, his very nature and mission is the essence of chaos and hence can be defined as evil. Its a bit like saying herr hitler wasn’t very nice at times.
As an example of janus-style finger pointing that most certainly describes trump himself and his un-admitted ‘deep state’ style puppet masters, they do indeed admit to climate change when one thinks about it, not outwardly but most certainly in their intentions to militarisation, to bullying tactics, to abandoning any assistance for non-trump States; setting up the system for when climate change starts to bite to ignore and quash mass migration, to grab food resources therefore exacerbating food shortages and they will have the brute force, the military and quasi military muscle to do whatever they want. Witness the disregard to comprehensive health care, the erosion of hard won Civil Rights, in the disregard of equitable and cordial International Relations; when the scramble for food and resources takes hold already trump-style USA will have ‘removed the gloves’, with trump and his Deep State backers it will be a coarse brutal world.
Yes Biden is old, but Kamala Harris would be first class in the role of President. Realise the dismantling of hard won rights and legislation that is being destroyed quietly behind the scenes by trump and his nasty hangers-on. Ever wonder why someone so career high-flying as Mnuchin basically just stands there silent …. its trumps s minder, just as with Pence, to ensure trump keeps up the facade, to reinforce the message.
technical problems re layout.
I’m using space fillers
to make some space on this layout…
Postscript, re-reading and editing the above a few days later I can’t believe we are having to write such things as this post, but write and witness we must certainly perform and exercise our critical faculties.
trump relies on his critics, the general population and any guardian of Democracy as being unable to forsee his next crazy move, today 24th September after a days absence from googling ‘trump latest’ say twice a day the latest trump horrors are most alarming, trump stating outright he will not regard or trust any democratic election process at election time. trump has hinted at this previously but never in such stark terms as yesterdays Press Briefing. As with all Fascists he is increasingly brazen and inclined to exercise brute force. I notice also the change in his face, something is happening we might not so far realise how drastic. These are genuinely frightening and dangerous times. Luckily theres a thing called the Constitution and I hope the Military will halt the march into outright Fascism.
Interesting and alarming embed on this Guardian article below how sick trump actually is ….
