Where is trump heading?

Why does trump and little helper Huckabee put so much effort into reshaping what is viewed as truth ?

Allowing only his version of reality as according to Dictator Donald and endlessly trying to destroy the validity of others, whether its politicians, critics or experts.  And all achieved with a twenty word vocab !

trump endlessly promotes and extolls his vacuous pointless viewpoints and often sheer crass ‘achievements’ or more accurately embarrassments. He and his cohorts and unseen backers are in the White House and they are determined to stay there, not by talent and honest hard work but by manipulation, lies and deceit. Russia figures bigger in this than even now anyone realises ie money sex and greed, the same old story.

He cannot move among men as a conventional man would, sadly displaying as if he has always been at odds and contrary to decent moral behaviour.  I assume there are dark and obscured promoters and backers, but to what end? Is it all about lining the pockets of the already rich or wilfully destroying the USA?  Why the onslaught on International Goodwill, established relationships? I suspect he wants to bankrupt the American farmer so the big corporations can clean up.

trump is attracted to dirt.

I met someone a little like him 45 years ago, a kid that was so out of step with reality, a would be con-man,  a fantasist,  never think suitable whatsoever for any position of responsibility never mind High Office. Its like when we get any despot or dictator, an unfortunate series of giddy steps upwardly self reinforce to seem bigger and better than they actually are, they are as if magically propelled.

trump plays the fool but construct a flow chart in your minds eye and see how hell-bent he is on his mission; staggeringly as if all premeditated, a plan. Why the need to control the media, to invert the truth and arch-manipulate, what new tricks and scams does he have in mind ?? Why trying to con and destroy all of the time ?? Note the subtle gradations of his message over the months, his slow driving of the wedge of ignorance, division and hatred. He’s saddled America, riding her good folk and he’s driving the wedge, stood there with a huge sledge hammer….

He is deliberately and vociferously rendering any criticism to be unacceptable, to be unheard. Certainly his love for and skill with his beloved rallies are grossly aided by hired hands to whip up an obscene denial of decency and good practice, to deny established time-won equitable procedure, of truth. Hitler worked crowds this way in Germany, Moseley had it in England. A crowd is a strange leviathan and I admit trump certainly knows how to pitch to the lowest common denominator, successively over the months he has promoted in discrete increments his gross nastiness; ever the slick salesman. Its as if we are losing the ability to think independently and this suits trump just fine. How long before hardly reported violence spreads like a cancer at these events?  Jim Acosta of CNN as per my last post sees it coming, many likewise.

trump is creating an atmosphere, a stage setting, a situation, a country where anything (nasty) can happen.

Note these last couple of days someone at the WH has got it into their heads trump needs to be seen with people of colour … so bingo … pics to fulfill the new message.

trumps fellow travellers know fine well that all they need to control is the first page of google; the little people, the reality of daily life of the little people he is neither concerned about nor will come into focus as long as he daily churns with his evil nonsense. The definition of chaos is evil, every dictionary tells the same.

 

postscript 4th Aug 2018 …  having to work at my desk today provided a chance to view some Thomas Hartmann youtubes, always worth listening to. Here he also is wondering where trump is heading, how far will he go, be allowed to go  ….

 

 

 

 

Jim Acosta – Speaking up for truth.

Well done Jim Acosta of CNN to stand up for truth, for the facts. These are basic tennants that Fox, trump and cohorts wilfully avoid. Its my opinion that trump rallies are stage managed and the audience visible behind trump are picked to look a little more affluent and integrated than those that trump can see ahead of him. To my mind his voter base is small but seemingly solid, I cannot see how functioning integrated wage earners are taken in by him. The tired and hollow slogan MAGA – ie make America look like a total  *rse-hole on the world stage …repeatedly … is wearing thin, in fact what is ‘great’??  We had a ‘Great War’ but i wouldn’t like to repeat it.   If these are ‘genuine’ fools then a continuing trump cancer will see their children and grandchildren propelled back to the 1930’s when ordinary folk had near zilch rights or protections, where kids went barefoot and medicine was not for the ordinary.  trump I think is engineering needless trade wars so that the big Corporations or Monsanto can come in and clean up at rock bottom prices. He also should be thankful for China, its allowed the West to create huge margins of easy money on imported product.  Its also my view that the whole NK KJ-un debacle was a stage managed event from day one so as to lead up to a vacuous and empty photo-op surrounded by flags.

 

As Noam Chomski says its what is happening unseen, the dismantling that is the real problem, trumps smokescreen of stupidity is merely deflection.  He gets up, defecates and tweets and so yet again the media is daily occupied with the latest obfuscation.

trump hasn’t quite yet introduced a new numeral system but with truth and decency and news reporting he most certainly is wishing to destroy all that exists to expose wrongdoing. trump busts a gut to invert what is right and true YET when it comes to clear and obvious Russian meddling various deceits and malpractice and financial shenanigans, he invertly busts a gut to be blind and deaf to these things. Words are straining to explain what we are seeing and hearing,  flow charts drawn in ones minds eye help best. Feynman had his newly devised squiggles and zig-zags to explain new knowledge and maybe we need something similar to indicate what is going on now.

trump is building hatred into peoples lives that is an unacceptable unenlightened unthinking way to exist. For sixty years its been hard work, a long road to win an enlightened outlook, he is doing all he can to build-in a return of blind violence and non-acceptance. Once people are charged up and seething as it were its like a loaded canon he can direct anywhere. KJ-un used a loaded canon, trump likewise has his own.

Trumps mindset ???

Trying to fathom what the heck trump ‘is about’ is not easy. Below sheds light on what is murky, difficult and apparently the contrary world of djt, an entity that can be likened to a shark in dark water. You can think he’s a fool but analysing his whole whacky and dangerous charade signals there is a strong mindset behind the madness.

A horrible mindset. This article helps ….

Be warned that in the UK for instance BBC news ie r4 is very poor at reporting trump in anything near a clear and full light, it endlessly will never criticise, will not place in context the harm, danger and lunacy of his activities. Some of the coverage verges on obscene in its bias and uselessness. The nearest that r4 can deliver to worthwhile coverage is bbc r4 ‘The World Tonight’ at 10pm.

Its scary to the extent trump and his evil cohorts know to manipulate media, to control the news cycle, generate churn and what coverage google will present the average person that is likely only to search goog page one, as in fact most of us are inclined. The first article links to this second link below and likewise helps understand what is going on. Last weeks obscene spectacle of trump trying to reverse 180 degrees his obvious support and subservience to Putin hinged on would / wouldn’t when context, body language, dialogue fore and aft all pointed to a very dirty situation. Yet he still tries to pull a fast one, Don the con, to lie to the entire world and its media that the opposite was true; cameras rolling, reporters present. STAGGERING !!! …. seesaw seesaw zigzag zigzag … not even heavy drug users are so contradictory and lieing within one bundle of flesh and bone. Surely to God truth and clarity must triumph eventually.

Climate change and its visible effects are sort of quiet now (and seem to be thus from simple searches) until we get the catastrophic confirmation of zero ice in Arctic waters later this year and approaching the release of methane in its three forms, likewise with mapping the Jetstream, water temps, and my pet interest of the seldom reported loss of diatoms (and plankton) that are esential to all ocean life as well as oxygen production;  remember, this thin film that we live in and which envelopes planet Earth is equivalant to making a model using a football and the usable thickness is 0.001 inch ie the thickness of a cigarette paper.

Interesting point is to realise ice in the north, the Arctic generally melts from the upper surface and as we know as children ice can suddenly next day be not there at all; yet south the Antarctic the ice loss is occurring from below, being undercut to break off huge lumps as melting seas drives inward. Greenland is melting from above and also in Swiss Cheese fashion as fast water torrents hundreds and thousands of feet deep.  People talk of ‘end of century’ ice loss but i think in ten years 2028 the decline will have been faster than most folk are likely to admit at this stage.

Meanwhile trump huffs and puffs ever the Dotard, outwardly ignoring climate change (he believes in it witness the Wall and its increasing militarisation) … pulling at his pointless levers just like the fake wizard in the ‘Wizard of Oz’.

 

Repulsed at trump …

Basically he is a fair imitation of a turd, stinking unwelcome and at every turn an embarrasment. Theres no excuse now, its gone too far.

Todays Helsinki charade with lover boy / puppet master Putin was indeed a shambles.

Treason is fair comment and the most prevelant response; a gold plated shit.

One to one behind closed doors, no advisers present, no agenda, no goals, no minutes kept … COME ON AMERICA GET REAL !!

I think its time the American public, Senate, whatever turned on this con-man called trump and moved forward, but as bbc r4 ‘The World Tonight’ mentioned it would be seen as a coup and so traditional democratic voting practice must be followed ie 2020.

trumps twenty word vocab was at straining point, if he turned up for a job I’d never give him one, theres nothing he can do. He trashed his own Intel people to side with Putin, wow they really must have the dirt on him, financial and whatever. Seemed very much to be reading Putins script and sounding dumb whilst doing it.

My heart bleeds for men of integrity in America, he is fast selling you to the lowest bidder.

Likewise these last couple of days Elon Musk has shown a side that is utterly repulsive. To insult a man and in turn all the team when they have successfuly carried out a most gargantuan feat in rescuing the trapped bods in a Thailand cave system demonstrates a most nasty ego. Musk is often referred to as an ‘engineer’ but I think not, a writer of code ie paypal but nothing more. His cars are certainly not as green as they are promoted, far better no cars at all, they will soon date once eventually delivered and praise as Eliot noted must never be over lavished; something needing to be noted by his busy online sycophants.  And whats this thing about space travel, lets look at home first. Colonise Mars crap repels me, wow thats a pleasant wake up each morning, looking out over …. nothing. If Musk really had worked as ‘an engineer’ in the sense that I know the term ie practical hands-on physical objects of complication (that sometimes can go wrong when you least want them to) he would know to keep quiet, not to barge into situations thinking he knows it all.

Third gripe tonight and its not easy to avoid A1 first class blunders on present day media and broadcasting was a final piece on bbc r4 ‘The World Tonight’ that informed us of the Human Zoo exhibited in 1958 in Belgium, unfortunate folk from the Congo literally fed peanuts and bananas by visitors/ gawping twits. Thankfully it was shut down. But what the piece did not mention was the prior previous involvement of Belgium with the Congo. Astoundingly dire, of a huge scale, shameful and still to this day not fully acknowledged. To mention one but not the other leaves the listening public woefully underinformed.

Postscript : earlier at 5:35 pm bbc r4 ‘PM Programme’ we had a most odd adulatory intro to the Elon Musk Thai cave story, a whole load of how he is so clever, is saving the planet (!) etc  ….. some naive young girlie reporter really did demonstrate her inexperience. How does this material get past vetting or a dry ‘run-through’? My view as I near retirement is that I know more than these people, maybe less an IQ but at least some common sense. bbc r4 has mostly nearly always throughout the trump Presidency given him the benefit of the doubt and mostly never even reacted to trumps obvious lies, nonsense and bluster.

 

 

UK protests at trump – Liam Fox is wrong …

I’m sorry Mr Liam Fox but the modern day democratic countries that we live in here in the UK allow us to express our revulsion at a pip-squeak retarded man-baby that has done everything possible to insult, damage and render anxious all corners of society home and abroad, excepting of course those extreme regimes that he’s done everything possible to court. How much of this is Bannon and Stephen Miller, both of which it seems were present in the UK for trumps visit (a gut wrenching revelation for any UK citizen) and how much is Putins influence we’ll never quite know until he’s out of Office. For instance the complete year long NK Kim J-un fiasco was in my opinion an orchestrated charade to reach exactly the climax of meaningless handshakes in front of flags as it turned out to be.

trump deliberately is turning the clock back to the worst of the 1930’s and is hell bent on destroying all the well intentioned reforms of the intervening years. He wants to devalue and destroy and has deliberately gone after NATO, G7, The Paris Accord, Pacific Trade, NAFTA, everything and how clearly does it need to be spelled out that he is both Putins lapdog and an unusual case of mental disfunction. Liam Fox says ‘The President of the United States’ and how we should serve respect on this visit,  well show me him because it most certainly is not the ignorant easily fooled dotard with a nasty streak we saw visit the UK last week crowbarred in as the reality tv election outsider by Russian meddling (and a ridiculous Comey news flash re Hilarys emails days before the voting) …. funny that name ‘Fox’ …. matches the tv news outlet that puts a favourable spin on anything trump is liable to do.

I wonder, to why Liam Fox himself is so misguided and out of tune with current enlightened thinking and why his near worthless but certainly offensive utterance was given so much news time today Saturday here in the UK? Perhaps to indicate the quisling type mentality still pervading the elite? Like being at school again and having to show respect to some utterly useless waste of space teacher! There is nothing that trump has done that does not draw offence from decent folk either side of the Pond. He couldn’t even turn up in time for the Queen, then the poor woman having to try at ninety two to side step this monstrous obstacle, trumps face as usual in seventh heaven at any form of military inspection or parade. This illustrates how dumbed down trump and his world functions at, all gloss, gilt and zero substance, zero brains.  Praise yes where praise is due but at this level of hierachy damning criticism also where applicable. And all the expense of this visit and half of it turns into a holiday jaunt and promo event at his golf club! As all of his foreign jaunts have proven (apart from the Putin love-fest due on Monday) trump really does not see them as anything more than a shakey-hands good to see you shallow encounter when in fact such events would normally be the icing on the cake to seal lots of behind the scenes negotiation and diplomacy to effect some new accord or agreement.

Lucky he can be ‘turned around’ a little (thats of course as long as you are not treading on Putin territory) …. and the likes of Theresa May have the wit and aptitude to help him understand and realise some of what he does not comprehend, perhaps introducing real world seasoned reality instead of the over-deferential courtiers and sycophants that surround him at home. Its obvious that he allows the ‘wrong people’ to whisper in his ear at home, old white men of extreme wealth that want things back to the ‘good old days’ of obscene insulating wealth that in actual fact never existed for the ordinary person. Its how you look back at previous generations that marks your place in society, when I look back my ancestors had lives of uncertainty and hard work, its difficult to realise some people will look back and see meals prepared out of sight, fresh laundry in abundance, a driver to take them everywhere, men who garden for them. How else could the big old houses, townhouses, houses that circle the Park have originated!  The media and writers often portray the past with an unrealistic bias, as if a forcing house for a novel, an ogre for a father and a mother as distant and unhinged, surely to God in the nineteenth century there were some even keeled well adjusted rich folk? An aside, my apologies.

I worried about the floating inflatable, sure to offend and trump is not likely to take it in an ordinary manner, to my mind probably caused more trouble than realised, it will stick in his mind. Liam Foxs’ words need to be re-framed and taken a step further in that here is a unique never before seen President that whilst he is on our shores we can educate and inform of our position and of our conventional allies, DJT has a lot of catching up to do.   So we could say it all needs to be managed so our visitor does not see or face anything likely to cause offence, from this premise I can see what Liam Fox was trying to say. And its here where I have wandered into a contradiction of myself in that trump is so unhinged, so regressive, bombastic and hurtful and offensive to all free people that it cannot be allowed that he does not meet or see or hear of protest. Liam Fox says trump shouldn’t hear protestors, oh deary me …. well why should nervous anxious families be torn apart at the border ….  and the idea of ‘brown’ be taken back to the ‘old days’ …  healthcare pushed back to the bad old days, evil regimes courted, trade wars, Moslems framed as second class, world diversity denigrated ?

Liam Fox needs to think upon the increasing and needless militarisation of the USA, the needless dismantling of Obamacare, the refusal of refugees, the Border Wall fiasco (and its militarisation signalling trumps acceptance of climate change) EPA madness and destruction, networks ie G7 etc all touted as ‘useless’ the list is endless and trump is indefensible. For protest not to occur should be unthinkable.

Liam Fox made the inexcusable mistake of calling trump ‘the leader of the free world’ which is utter nonsense, that term having long been relinquished, his Inaugration Speech spelling out nothing but a degenerative nastiness and subsequently as evident from his methods, manners,  behaviour and actions. Hotelier and beauty pageant host does not make him leader of the free world. Witness how he deals with questions from CNN, unwarranted in his putdown and nastiness, even reserving venom for the BBC! At least they partly got their own back a few days before his UK arrival  in running the story of trump attending parties of four men with fifty wanna be models and some girls being underage.

On a broader view we seem to live in an age where increasingly high profile movers and shakers with the advantage of money seem not to realise the knowledge and hard won slow learned experience that is required for many aspects of this worlds activity whether its International Relations or making cars. ‘Doing stuff’ is harder than it looks and too much attention and value is placed on slick talk and the glib and shallow tweet. And from this we can say that many kids are being underinformed, its a modern curse, not being alerted as to how high the hurdles actually are.

Following from this we can see that the web and instant access to all manner of predominantly ‘simple facts’ can fool us to thinking we can know it all. Nothing can be further etc. As is proven with the fake President and Mr Musk thinking he can solve the cave rescue with a quick lash-up job, its the people at the sharp end with many years of developed knowledge and technique that are the masters of their craft; demonstrating its vital to realise …  ‘to know what we don’t know’.
