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 facebook – his 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.
Not being a Statesider I wonder if this gets much exposure here in Europe and the UK?
I’ve got plenty of time for Samantha Bee, likewise Seth Myers, Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert and others or anyone that raises alarm and questions bigotry. But I do miss Keith Olberman and wonder quite why he ceased his valuable youtubes?
I think it will soon be filled with bunks, desks and lockers but as an opening its good for Christmas. Listen to the report in that it is so difficult to do business in a small town with next to no accomodation and is a long car drive from anywhere. Some very ‘clever’ intentionally cruel thinking going on by the planners. Very much a we and them mindset. Why so remote? When is a Concentration Camp not a Concentration Camp?
Realise, its commonly assumed trump is ‘on something’ when speaking at these rallies, we know he has difficulty or at least a major reluctance to deal with the written word, hence the open refusal to use the tele-prompter. He openly without hesitation says “I don’t drink” as put forward so quickly and as witnessed in others that we know fine well they use something else.
Postscript a day later: I had written … When ‘orating’ he’d promise anything if it got an ovation ….. he is fake, a con, shallow, unread. The backdrop is managed, the man in the hard hat, the disconnect. And deep in Russian debt. unquote. The first part above is wrong, his journey of grift and con has been very carefully graded just to be ‘on the edge’ of what is acceptable or legal. He will not ‘promise anything’ … far from it. His rhetoric looks to be most carefully planned, or as is also possible as with all great conmen talkers he knows exactly what he’s saying. When orating trump throws out the same tid-bits the same dirty nonsense that he knows tickles the crowd and illicits the same knee jerk reaction. A jerk from the Jerk.
Now we live in a world without Mattis or Kelly to contain trumps stupidity, commentators now used the term invertebrate (something without a spine, generally slimey and wriggling, easily squashed) that will staff the White House; horribly appropriate term.
trump gorges on the swamp, adding his defecation daily.
It was there for all the world to see, someone already we know moves awkwardly amongst other men, G20 and now a funeral all in barely a week. The body language and manner, time spent, face, interaction … all quite telling.
To drive away before even the coffin had left the Church was grossly uncouth, insulting I would say. But theres no love lost, everyone knows the jerk they are dealing with, having to patiently wait until all the dirt forms a noose. It was a good idea to have him there, it shows the measure of him.
Previously, to twitch and jerk around whilst supposedly be reflecting at the deceased lain before him again more telling than he could ever realise, he could not even give him a full minute of reflection. The brevity of it all, in fact a deliberate turn on the heel without ever once allowing the body to relax and the mind to ponder and reflect. Not a man that can reflect other than sharpen his hatred.
Look at that face, hear that voice.
What a strange disconnect there is constructed, as if a reality tv character has extended the script into real life. It shows how empty of wholesome human effort the USA has become when so much is given over to makeup and clothes and presentation, a seemingly endless supply of very expensive costumes for the girls, to the ad hoc press briefing accompanied by the dramatic whine of the helicopter engine.
He doesn’t drain the swamp, he drinks it.
You mean the Bryozoans have given up, expired.
This falsity and laxness vexes me. And what of their symbiotic relationship with from what i have read … diatoms ?
So maybe we can say that the Bryozoans are the aquatic canary in the coal mine?

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 …..
‘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.
postscript; here in the UK we have a Free Press … https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/nov/23/donald-trump-judges-walter-shapiro

… in the way it is reporting trump. Last night at 10pm on bbc r4 ‘The World Tonight’ radio programme we had a recycled many days old quote from djt that was read by ‘an actor’ … as if the Presidents vocal delivery is too whacky for legitimate discourse (which it is) regarding how he will not condemn Saudi Arabia for the Khashoggi murder and torture and probable dismemberment. The complete three minute piece was deliberately, overtly biased toward putting trump in a good light. The use of the actors voice completely changed how we would have perceived the insanity from trump. The world cowers and sniggers yet the bbc in this previously respected radio programme is basically ‘so far up’ that all we can see are toenails. Crude imagery yes, but true. And an insult to all the listeners. A word I never use is ‘conspiracy’ but from what I heard last night the word fits.
Heres the poor man, RIP; the world must never forget his sacrifice.
Strangely bbc radio struggles with pronouncing his surname and as for names in Mandarin they make up phonetics that do not exist … its easy, pop into any Cantonese take-away and get the correct sound.
Why is the bbc hanging on to this ridiculed and false viewpoint? Are newsroom people so inexperienced and useless? I would love someone to answer me this. Note I do not have tv, but do most mornings read online best quality US news reporting which I regard as valid material.
As Seth Meyers points out trump stumbles from one whacky misjudgement to another, spouting valueless junk as he mumbles along. ‘Get him outa here’ as usual with all trump put-downs being most appropriate to himself. trumps invalid criticism of Forestry Management in CA being stupid beyond belief sprinkled with the ‘raking the forests’ nonsense. That is obviously his grounds management from golf courses, which I’ve not heard anyone else make the connection. A night in the forest would do him good, as with, like …. being outdoors and more than twenty paces from a golf buggy. Might make him realise his carefully tended coiffure has to go !
Witness also trumps recent junk regarding Admiral McRaven.
People just stand around at the Idiot in Chief talks crap; which is probably safer for everyone.
postscript 10 hrs later …. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/nov/21/turkey-attacks-trump-comic-stance-on-khashoggi-killing
Also todays nasty nasty helicopter whirring Ivanka and emails invective / denial from trump displays his nasty nasty combative mindset. And this is from the so-called President of the United States !! Indeed we are trawling the bottom layer of sludge to come up with this shit.
