arrogance, dogma, ignorance …

I feared using this title again, first used and quoting the late Jacob Bronowski a video clip embedded here a few months ago. Yet silly pipsqueaks from their trashy world have shamed themselves in their arrogance, dogma and ignorance.

With those MAGA hats I think this was a put-up job, the young men themselves allowing themselves to be ‘led on’ exactly as what happened in 1930’s Germany with Hitler Youth, 1960’s China with licensed vandals ie Red Guards. There was always a conscious brand identity and gang mentality to reinforce their stupidity, their arrogance, dogma and ignorance.

Why do people not strive to learn, to study, to do better, to live a cleaner life?  Is modern life so trashy they cannot understand or respect the life trials of others?  Skill, the ability to undertake a less than easy task is so very undervalued and increasingly pointless by swathes of society. As if clicking a few keys is seen as an achievement !

Its so sad accumulated history and experience seems to be near absent; as a sick joke from ‘above’ that mankind will always struggle to make a good job of itself. My commiseration to the venerable tribal elder.

trump has rendered viable the worst in human nature. He is much cleverer than he seems, much more intuitive and street savvy (and nasty). Realise his affiliation and adoration of Roy Cohn. Just as with Hitler and Mao with his ‘Red Guards’ he gives license to reckless vandals and thugs.

Another example … I  have new neighbours in rented property  next door and they too are proving themselves to be trashy ie front lawn increasingly messy, utterly no connection with the soil or making an effort, garden spiralling downhill, trashy limited so-called lives begetting more of the same ad infinitum. I know lots, can help them, have made effort to connect, nope they will see me as anachronistic, just an old man next door. How misinformed they are!!! We are seeing the product of four generations of tv and of a web centred life with little beyond. Tut tut.

 

postscript … Heres my original post utilising the words of Jacob Bronowski as the title. Never more have these words and such insight of Dr Bronowski been more vital in trying to see truth and morality in the dark times of the conman trump and his accomplices in their denial of truth, the facts, democracy, equality and equal rights for everyone.

f … for Fake ?

I started a facebook account a few days ago (which I have mothballed) and already knew it was a jumble of nonsense as any form of blogging platform; the local tie-in unwanted was an irritation as were ads which screamed ‘fake’.

An hour or more of my life wasted. Compounded by several logins foiled and insisting on a pic of myself log in after log in.  Needless to say it was a random piece of junk submitted.

But ….WTF !

facebook is a crappy cluttered trivial to extreme piece of junk. Yet think of all the lovely analytics it provides. Quite obscene. Life was never meant for such up the arse triviality called facebook. Or surveillence called facebook.

My reason for this post is the irony of trump endlessly hurling the insult FAKE to the Free Press ie journalists of acumen and hard effort yet when it comes to the fakery and nonsense of facebookhis little helper to election – he is silent. We can now see the extent of Russian manipulation via facebook. I’m sorry to say that I don’t hold Zuckerberg in any positive esteem.

 

 

Essential listening…

This is a good vid, straight into the nitty gritty … the stupidity of trump, the urgency of climate change, the arrogance and blind refusal of the GOP to accept climate change being real and the problem is here right now … notice Noam Chomsky tells us of the obscene roll-back of USA Emmisions Laws … they admit they don’t care and it ‘doesn’t matter’ ….. the bar is set so low now that people are limboing in the mud itself.

 

Comparing what trump says to reality …

Theres nothing clever about what I’m posting here, its for anyone that cares to read it, easily found,  primarily tonight its for me to see what are the facts as compared to the jumble of nonsense that emanates from the White House ie a few hours before the tv speech to the Nation. donalds words are not merely nonsense but hard clever spin to work a dark magic, a nasty magic. It is indeed a sad retrograde world we live in, or more exactly a retrograde White House that journalists continually have to fact check anything with a trump tag attached and continually every time find the BS has to be corrected. Yet the Chief Spewer of Misinformation as is typical of the present time is in fact a total fake, an insult he prefers to lobb at the Free Press when in fact he is the guilty culprit.

Nice reading, aligns the facts, injects some reality …

https://edition.cnn.com/politics/live-news/trump-speech-shutdown-border/index.html

Deeply misleading is a term used further down the page at CNN re the misinformation being promoted from no. 1600 ….  yes trump and Pence can certainly be guilty of that; continually and with vigour.

 

 

Postscript a day later; I find it hard to believe there are people still hanging around to be part of the nonsense trump White House. Last nights broadcast to the Nation was a web of lies and mis-truth, thank goodness for the journalists to check all this.  For someone supposedly ‘so adept’ (NO) at tv…  donalds chat must have appeared as the most crass stilted moronic item of propaganda conceivable. I feel sorry for  impressionable old folk, dementia patients etc that now must be haunted by crazed hammer wielding fiends from across the border. I think however the real threat as always an inversion of what he says is in fact donald himself. Without any shred of doubt we can now see ‘wheres he’s coming from’ …..

Thers lots of border wall already for two legged hammer weilding assailants, sufficient. But surely donalds forgotten the airports, lorries, cargo, containers, freight?

Light relief … heres donald signing blank paper …. https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-might-have-tweeted-a-photo-of-himself-signing-a-blank-bill-government-shutdown-2018-12?r=US&IR=T

Lies, Fascism… Etc.

Note my upper-case E for etc  …. its a lot of etcetera.

Its healthier now that the F word Fascism is realised, ie anything which steam rollers over Free Speech and a Free Press and this describes exactly the manner and pursuits of trump and family. I cannot believe it is by chance that the Emperor standing in his fine replendant new clothes has so carefully been able to navigate his filthy agenda without others guiding and goading. To drain the swamp? ….  He drinks it !

Take for instance Ivanka, who in fact knows diddley and I would say cares even less; apart of course from the covert hidden private trump agenda. Yet ever the master of making the right impression and oh so ever media savvy (of course she is look at her background and training) …. with these people its not a degree in Economics or half a lifetime of high level Government experience they’ve intentionally secured but instead how to be good with a microphione and work a crowd, the soundbite, the polished interview. Max return, minimum effort.

These people are riding America.

As stunning a woman but I cannot bear to hear her voice, likewise her dads  …..

reality bites home …

Sorry to say but what else can result from an idiot driving the bus?

The trump family is quite obscene in its denigration of reality and the embrace of its own loveliness and unique bullshit stance. Ivanka and Melania in their own ways present themselves as paragons (hint: theres more to life than make up, presentation,  clothes and real estate)  but in essence theres a total disconnect with integrity, objective truth, honesty and the real world. Much like a trump interview, a trump Press Conference or Huckabee Sanders response ie evasion is not the required outcome.

This poor fellow below and his family have bitten hard on the results of an idiot driver ie Potus #45 …. donald j trump.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/trump-gm-layoffs-cuts-promise-economic-policies-tariffs-1.4923245

There is so much more to being President that donald trump is capable of. At every turn he twists and screws the American Citizen. Look at his track record, his non-payment to his contractors, his lies, his evasion, his pure BS nonsense.

Unfit for Office.

 

postscript … in the above link we learn that cars are no longer the ‘must have’ and in fact pick-up trucks and SUVs are being bought instead, hence existing plants are less viable. But to hammer manufacturers with higher priced materials (ie tarriffs imposed by trump) is a very cruel move and serves no-one other than a power-drunk idiot. Another instance of trump being the enemy of this planets viability ie Climate Change. The added irony of trump threatening to pull subsidies on EV at GM is as usual with trump …. quite obscene. Whichever way trump turns it is a disaster, all hype, BS effect for the camera, the soundbite. Theres lots of mess to be undone by Potus #46….

 

 

 

 

trump talks rubbish … we know he does.

‘Get him outa here’ fits and likewise his family members that should not be in the White House. What is it that they do? Any good being done? This is what we could say a ‘rubbish administration’. Rendering into rubbish any good they see around themselves.

trump talks rubbish, spouts nonsense, manipulates to an extraordinary extent to scaremonger and trick the gullible to thinking he alone can see the real story. trump trashes and accuses as fake anything not wholly sycophantic to his ‘at the moment’ position.

trump serves up soundbites sufficient to keep the camera ‘on him’, oversimplifies and turns everything around to himself. trump is doing a very good impersonation of a Fascist.

I feel so sorry for the person that has to inherit this mess, this rubbish-yard of de-engineered contraptions (Government, fiscal, exchange and markets) called trumps inabilities. As they say, you elect a clown, you get a circus.
