Why are we so jumbled?

Why is bigotry and blindness, pretend knowledge that can hardly amount to a sentence or two allowed such free-rein dominance and real ‘grown-up’ dialogue so despised?

Has the ‘little screen’ so jumbled peoples minds that knowledge and anything other than a few dozen words is beyond most people? Or perhaps more accurately shoddy tenth-rate no, zero-rate leadership glove puppet trump in the White House and space boy Pence who also doesn’t ‘believe’ in science are twitching and pronouncing on things they have utterly no idea about. Its all about the sound bite my dears, to dominate the news cyle excluding fair arguament and grown-up open minded and informed dialogue.

How can things have got this bad?

Looks like Lewis Carrol wrote the script.

Witness endless destruction of carefully built EPA safeguards and protections, a trillion handed back to the already super-rich, hatred and bigotry fuelled and stoked to a desire to be back in the 1930’s, the modest, the Mexican, the Moslem all shoved to the back of the queue, families crow-barred apart and deported. Remember, the 1930’s to people like trump would have meant ‘business opportunities’ as we imagine them cruising in their chauffer driven limos. trump finds war quite appealing, anyone who has ever been in it or suffered its effects will be screaming that war should not ever happen again. trump is deaf to this.

Once trump mis-management, inertia and sheer ignorance bite home I fear the USA will be harder hit than anyone in the coming recession.

Never trust anyone with a funny haircut, nor parades barrel chested, magesterially and with pomp with silly over-applied tv makeup for the next op ….. nor revels so obscenely in his ‘me-focused’ rallies.  Remind you of anyone?

Trump is a clown.
This is the swamp indeed ie Master Faker trump… can barely read, despises the printed word other than when it carries his own name, denies experts or science or environmental prudence, is blind to climate change.

 

 

Lines in the sky mid-Feb 2020.

These lines do not disappear quickly as should conventional aircraft condensation trail but in fact increase as the minutes pass and half an hour later can result in a man-made haze ….. ask any Californian or resident of the Baltic Sea area, Portugal, Spain, Italy, the Black Sea etc.

Due to these lines in the sky retired Fisheries Biologist Francis Mangels and many others link this to increased and I state here alarming levels of free-borne aluminium ie present as a toxic elemnt, not bonded as it should ordinarily be in nature. Witness seabird die off, lack of life in water ie from diatoms to caddis and higher.

Note trump has the USA and particularly the EPA trussed up, everyone fearful, scientific ethics and knowledge banished for fear of retribution ie sackings, budgets withdrawn etc. trump too is now disassembling the American Intelligence community, he also has done the same by installing stooges to do his bidding, lets hope Mr Barr can reclaim his self respect and fight this evil. Fingers crossed Mitt Romney can fight this avalanche of disaster known as trump. As at mid-Feb 2020 we now have the pardoning of white-collar crooks and Stone laughing all the way to the Bank.

Recall trump endlessly repeating he was going to ‘drain the swamp’? trump will do anything to catch votes, anything to feed his absurd extreme money obsessed and unreal, unethical, immoral outlook. Sitting there with his Big-Boy Marker he scans the newspapers for mention of his name, hardly able to read, most certainly not intending to read (witness his absurd and embarrassing teleprompter wrangles) and certainly never picking up anything new from the printed word. Its not even his own fingers that push out the tweets. The machinery of nature to use a Paul Erlich book title is now set in revolution to dissolve ice-caps, unfreeze the much needed permafrost and release both terrestrial and subsea methane, merely a slight sea level rise will unhinge the multiple Antarctic ice shelf and now weather systems are working against the tiny little humans that scurry around, most certainly nature laughs last. Meanwhile clown trump inhabits the White House …

Below I include lucky glimpses of chemtrail here in NE England these last few days. Its near impossible at this stage of the climate game to impress upon anyone that these things are undesirable and mock a so-called free society, only time will prove me right.  In my opinion it is free-borne nano-particle aluminium as the reason California wildfires burned the way they did. There must be a reason for chemtrail but I cannot work it out, I am wary of that dreaded term ‘conspiracy theory’ thrown around, bandied with little thought behind it; which is in fact something we are not very good at these days ie ‘thinking’ … no time, no rest from little screens and endless un-needed information. The bright and clever will still gain academic excellence but for the rest of us, the ordinary, I fear the ordinary person knows less now than for many generations previously, likewise this two-edged so-called wonderful thing the web far too easily feeds prejudice and polarises thought, the web hardly seems to nurture tolerance and compassion particularly among the less advantaged that are not used to evolving a balanced consideration, a discussion. I’ve always thought that in schools rhetoric, the art of talking and discussion needs to be more fully embraced.

 

 

 

 

I also use NASA Worldview (see prev posts) which only gives me a hint say a third max of chemtrail activity as observed overheard here in NE England, but at least allows me to look at Spain, Bay of Biscay, Balearics, Italy, Baltic Sea, North Sea, English Channel etc that receive a lot of chemtrail.

 

I applaud Mitt Romney.

At least someone has courage and decency; its frightening to see so many old white men hang onto the coat-tails of trump, himself a mere puppet for vested interest. How can anyone tolerate the absurdity and total unsuitability for Office?  Nancy is my hero, best thing she could do in tearing up that script.

In these vile days of trump two and two are most certainly three, or five but anything but four.

trumps obsession is to be on the edge of the news curve, he’ll do anything to be the headlines; lying and false claims are nothing to him, chaff to the wind each day. These times of change seem to be bringing out the worst in people that should know better.

trump used to talk about the swamp, merely another hook to catch voters, but in his post acquittal speech he himself goes lower than anyone could imagine, a surreal DC comic version of what an unhinged President would promulgate whilst all around him lay disarray and destruction.

trump and his many pronged attack on good sense and decency…

 

The Impeachment Trial was a farce. Those that spoke the truth or wanted to get at the truth were effectively silenced, a couple of days later Alexander Vindman (a Ukraine expert) fired and escorted off the premises, Gordon Sondland also fired. As we know, trump does not like experts or anyone that is impelled to seek the truth. From the wiki below we can also see that Vindmans twin brother has also been fired at the same time,

quote:

His identical twin brother, Yevgeny S. Vindman, is an Army lieutenant colonel and JAG Officer who was assigned as an attorney on the National Security Council staff handling ethics issues, until he was dismissed from that post on February 7, 2020, the same time as Alexander was removed from his NSC post.[3][27][25]

As a comic aside from this Impeachment charade I can’t help but recall Judge Nutmeg of Reeves and Mortimer  “What are the charges …. trumped up” !

Every day with trump is a backward step.

Note on the second link how v.p. pence is so impossible to pin down, to get him to admit the harm the trump ‘administration’ administers every single day.  Its so sad to see how George Orwells predictions were so accurate.

Why is it the likes of pence and trump are insistently deaf to truth and common sense?

At 0850 GMT this morning on bbc r4 we heard of trumps ‘good standing in the world’ and how many Americans in fact admire his stance on Foreign Policy, International Relations and Diplomacy!! This I found staggering; I can assume the interviewer was ridiculing the interviewee Carol Leonnig, but maybe the interviewer was convolutedly having to promote a weird r4 morning news stance, perhaps pandering to the directives from above. I find that at 10pm with ‘The World Tonight’ the news is better relayed.

‘eh …. quoted as ‘a success, a master in some ways’ …. what the heck do I seem to be missing here???  More like a master of nastiness and of ridiculing all the enlightenment and advances hard won in many cases that safeguard the ordinary people and the environment and the natural world of America.

trump has created NOTHING BUT DISCORD, FEAR AND MISTRUST.

Its strange how the interview twisted in its couple of minutes duration, as if form of crazy Moebius strip, Carol Leonnig at first stating trump has v little knowledge of anything in other words profoundly ignorant and no inclination to learn, in fact unable to learn and his geography / knowledge of the world map to be very poor indeed. And then bolted on to the end of the interview was the put to bed nonsense of ‘trumps (good) standing in the world’. Its a bad state of affairs when garbage of this sort comes out of my radio. Again, what am I missing, it wasn’t Friday 13th or April 1. But what I do know is that big business has their hand up trump as if a childs glove puppet; trump has no need to think or form policy or be a leader in the real sense, vested interests based on greed and an outdated economic model does the thinking for him.

Obtaining better web results …

… is mostly better when I switch back to the old stack ie firefox and XP O/S. Immediately I can get at the info I’m looking for, the newer windows 10 is like a straightjacket re results and also the O/S interface is abysmal.

Immediately I find a website that is new to me, firstly melting permafrost and secondly a Jan 15 2020 article of yet again seabird die-off. My own hobby horse and fascination has been algae and plankton and my concern with the hardly barely reported loss of diatoms, the irony being 70% of the worlds oil and gas is derived from ancient deposits accrued from diatoms. And oh yes … every fifth breath we take we owe to the oxygenating properties of diatoms.

I’m also still vexed that trump and his crooked hangers-on waste the news cycle and the time of adults when we have better things to be attending to ie climate change.

trump ever the evil clown…

trumps performance at Davos as everywhere he goes is repugnant to any caring, free thinking sensible citizen, in the last couple of days all we hear is trump carnage and apparent ineptitude, but however the gold plated turd does in fact seem to have some ie a little energy and momentary focus, witness the removal of wetland protection and environmental safeguards for water quality … like that runny clear thing that is the cornerstone to a families establishment and a communities survival.

Destruction and the lowest common denominator is the trump byword, nothing good comes from trump. He is a showman, a fairground barker, a Father Coglan; trump mobilises hate. trump has no real ethical talent, he just knows that de-stabilising the sludge at the bottom of the barrel might just keep him in Office.

I particularly am horrified at trumps absolute refusal to take notice of the natural world (ie that thing outside the window that makes the clouds roll by) …  of climate and how quickly unfriendly feedbacks are cascading into a most horrible scenario.

It beggars belief the White House has sunk so low, the web / social media aiding his prospects enormously.

I think the above image ie NY Times doesn’t quite help us realise that it is running water that is under threat, that people and communities DOWNSTREAM expect better and deserve better than in the days of old.

Here the friendly folk at conservapedia at great time and effort list the vigour at which trump and his motley crew strip and de-establish hard won safeguards, trumps big-time business owner chums must be hardly be able to believe their luck at low IQ low attention span Donald twitching and jumping at every callous request … https://www.conservapedia.com/Donald_Trump_achievements:_Energy_and_environmental_policy

The nonsense we are told.

bbc r4 this morning devoted a few minutes to some top medical bod telling us we mostly all carry too much weight (yes I agree) and need to look at calories and not particularly look at fat or sugar content (I don’t agree). There was no mention of sedentary tv and i-phone lifestyle, that kids seldom if ever play outside, that so many are hooked on the battery chicken Disney lifestyle, browsing, never making or doing much in particular.  Particularly there was no condemnation of off-the-shelf meals, an over-reliance of frozen as opposed to fresh and the resultant lack of good quality nutrition.

My immediate reaction to this un-thinking piece of low grade journalistic nonsense was how unquestioning the interviewer was. As the famous Mr Meatloaf was quoted recently all you need do is look at sugar and fat….. to which I would add get into home-cooking and some vigorous walking exercise. The latter is so now desperately needed that a few weeks previous again bbc r4 ran a piece that Docs are desperate for pre-op patients wherever possible to get into exercise and a healthier lifestyle. This I concur entirely. It must be hellish to have to deal with raw material ie patients that are so tragically unfit.

I personally do not enjoy eating out whatsoever to the extent I would dread such an invitation.  Surely its more fun to cook and learn at home, the beautiful aromas, the tweaking and experience gained in getting something ‘just right’, a friend and a drink surely what more could you want … and think of the money saved!  Yes it takes time but at least we are not sat in front of the tv or dreaded I-phone and are somehow active and building a skill.

Likewise other moans today, American propaganda in general and specifically the downed airliner.  I am increasingly highly sceptical of any intel or pronouncements offered from the Americans, particularly anything with the taint of trump attached to it. I personally think it was truly shameful that trump upped the tensions in the Middle East with the assassination Soleimani. And as the third article suggests, its probable the Americans can fool enemy radar into mis-identifying the data they see on their radar screens.

Heres some brain food ….
