Analysis of trump…

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.

Truly … this is greatness!

Ha ha ha … excuse me … more appropriately ‘smallness’.

Can anyone be taken in with this junk of trump? Totally obviously a fantasy ride of delusion from a master deceptionist. Look folks, his total presence, effort and capability rests solely on this bar-room banter from the podium. Nudge nudge snigger snigger we are sharing the secret with donald. Yes he’s adept but its all fakery, lies, phoniness. He’s good at it, a decade of crappy reality tv shows have trained and honed this fakester to what he is today.

A delusional trickster, suiting the purposes of the crooked, the greedy and Putin.

Note his audience is highly vetted to be a potent mix of adulatory numskulls, paid lackeys and stooges. Yet as long as it gets on tv the fakery continues to work its magic.

Below we see footage of the trickster in action which triggered me to write this post ….

climate change misinformation, time drag ….

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.

Its called accountability…

.. and I hope everyone is fine by this.

I certainly am, my accounts are fully traceable, fully accountable, close to a penny in accuracy (even if I don’t even bother to put down trivial items) and I’m quite proud of the cheque I send for tax; it is as it were an ‘index of my success’. I play no games with the taxman, I make a profit and pay a slice of it for this country… its called not having any choice! You see, I don’t get around greasy individuals that know endless loopholes and dodges, that sort of person is not for me. However unlike a neighbour of mine that exhibits such indignation at paying £800 in £50k on his ! …. for many years this is far less than I provide to charity at half his income. Creep …..

Another creep is donald j trump, he too thinks that taxes are not for him, like an ill fitting suit best left in the store and rather not taken home. Well donald baby, what brought Al Capone to justice will likewise be served on donald j trump. As many commentators have stated, an orange jump suit will eventually be his permanent attire.

If a so-called (ex) President will not bend to the most basic and elementary accountability then when why for goodness sake was he ever allowed anywhere near the White House? Why is it he is still in the news cycle and still has hapless fools regarding him? trump is no politician, merely a stooge for Putin, a stooge for the crooked GOP and a stooge for his mountain of debt.

Is this the failure of education?

The scandal of it all…

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.

More trump junk…

trump in any other position would v soon be bypassed, be discarded, couldn’t occupy the role of janitor ( my apologies to all hardworking janitorial operatives) and note I deny trump upper case.

As I’ve said for years the insults that trump throws around are most pertinent to himself (the accusatory finger plumb 180 deg in the wrong direction) trump himself most definitely being low energy, fake, swamp, lies.

trump is a gold plated example of too much wealth going badly wrong, spoilt from minute one; my own father would have used the term ‘spoilt’ and increasingly I can see that this can indeed engender a lazy, misguided inept and talentless individual. I’ve seen other examples of this lately but thats my own private affair but certainly has me more than usual focused on the term ‘spoilt’. A character spoilt, a development spoilt, no effort engendered, totally lazy both mentally and physically. What a curse money can be and in trumps case a curse on America.

trumps grandfather fed off gold prospectors and now trump feeds off America.

trump apparently has little idea if any of the meaning of words, of their potential weight, potential to do good or bad, the potential constructive purpose of dialogue, their value. He loves the tv screen, witness Netanyahu using a doctored vid to turn trump against the Palestinians and cut aid ( a signature move this, cut aid to the already struggling, hell …. he’s even massively cut aid to Americans). His more recent admissions of binge watching Fox clearly demonstrate trump susceptibility to anything on a screen and as reported yesterday in interview takes it all in like a sponge, spoilt boy Donny just does just not ‘see’ is unable to exercise any critical thought, other than bigotry and preconclusions. He stakes his position in the dirt, draws a circle with his foot and claims this is where I stand. And remember this is the nut with the nuclear codes.

Notice how both trump and Regan were/are actors, to quote Noam Chomsky “Were handed a script and read from it” though I realise here I’m loose with the facts, trump stumbles with reading, again as my Dad would have said “Never learnt his alphabet”.

the fake president…

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.

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

 

Its too quick …

… 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.

Scandals, incompetence, lack of vision.

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!

‘cors …

… cleaner skies will mean more immediate climate heating, oh dear. And my previous post and link for Sam Carana ie Arctic news blogspot focus on the huge release of methane from what looks to be an earthquake in the Arctic. Yuck.

Driving thro my nearby town tonight (NE UK) was a trifle upsetting considering how we still mingle for shopping and for instance many small businesses such as car repair seem to still have human interactions; I cannot help but feel pub and restaurant closure ie trifling but valuable human interactions will create a whole bundle of frustrations and eventual anger. I’m okay, I pretty well live the exact social distancing lifestyle that the Government would so wish us all to pursue, but I’m not sure the average person would wish to live as I do. In fact I know they would not and could not.

Boris has promised vast amounts of citizen wage aid, but be warned he will want his price ie stringent shutdowns as and when he thinks fit.

My heart bleeds for front-line Doctors and nurses  …  despite the pure lies and blindness  of Government Press Briefings … we hear several times over each day from NHS frontline workers that the correct PPE is not present and is pathetically unsuitable, short of the decent minimum.

And where is   TEST-TEST-TEST  which we were implored to pursue? Its a bit like UK ‘Foot and Mouth’ in that all the hard lessons learnt from the experience of 1969 were ignored thirty years later.

A term seemingly forgotten is bio-security, quite handy actually, its what we all should aim for. Something else we should aim for is NOT to excessively stockpile, methinks there will be much waste, lots ending up in the bin, after all … its difficult to get excited at the prospect of yet more pasta based meals. Luckily I’ve started to get into Indian and Pakistani cooking, I’ve a couple of excellent charity shop books here and once you are ‘tooled up’ ie have the necessary herbs and spices you are able to create so much beautiful taste and often without using meat of any form. Heres so far my rock-bottom must have …..

mustard seed and fennel seed.

olive oil.

cumin seed with hot fried sweet potato ‘twiglet sized’ pieces.

fresh coriander.

try supermarket jars of Indian sauce (try Saag Masala) … you can use red onion, leek and broccoli for an instant meal. Garam masala is part of the toolkit as well as additional  coconut milk.  I also make my own chapati and Peshwari nan … all v quick and simple.

Besan flour too can make a simple bhaji or vegan burger which is wonderful with say an onion chutney.

I also use Ajiwan seed in my trad brit suet crust or for my nan bread mix.

I also enjoy a sea food pilaf (ie white wine, smoked haddock, mussels, chicken, rice, chicken stock).

a beef skirt casserole with chopped parsnip and carrot for flavour, don’t forget a couple of cloves, also Kalo beef stock ie low salt.

as a treat, crushed chilled raspberry with carnation, ground cinnamon and ground nutmeg.

try to add fresh garlic and ginger wherever possible, fresh diced fig also fine chopped red onion, leek, spring onion; fresh ground black pepper and sea salt. This is all as can be termed ‘Natures Medicine Chest’.
