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.

predictions …

He says he is taking hydroxychloroquine, which must mean he probably is not.

Liar liar!

That’s Donald.

The kidder, the conner, he never stops.

Today I drew from my bookshelves ‘Elizabethan Handwriting  1500-1650’ by G E Dawson and L Kennedy-Skipton, on p.30 is a manuscript from 1611 in which the writer of the example text quotes Hermes ie

‘Three things are to be pitied and the fourth not to suffered …. a foole sett in authoritie’.

Most certainly djt has a cleverness which in effect is tantamount to evil, but as a useful cleverness …. never!!

Has anyone else noted trump looks to be wearing a corset underneath his shirt ?? I’d bet good money I’m right.

Its all tv folks, its all a con.

 

*** I may never blog for quite some time, or I possibly ever again, no buzz from it lately. Its a lonely activity and then ones efforts lost into the ether …  wrong … the web!

I’ve done enough re climate change and the downright evil trump, my own curiosities and satisfactions need to be nurtured, increasingly I am sceptical of the digital intrusion into our lives. Even a few days of learning to write a cursive script have fascinated me (ie ink and plain steel nib) and created a curiosity and a developing skill that will remain I hope for my lifetime. The web is cold and so very distant from true human interaction.

I feel that …

Theres no reason for me to be here posting links and info these days. The worlds media lampoons and highlights the trump idiocy, or more accurately the trump deception and power play. trump is indeed clever, a sort of very much non-academic mobster savvy cleverness that is in fact difficult to pin down.

I’ve been away from news and media for two days and the search results for trump latest has shocked me, the con-man in chief is so far down the tubes as to be near unfathomable or more properly near incredible in his twistedness. Up is down, right is wrong, bad is good …… straight from DC Comics.

I wish trump the illest of luck as may a million or ten million others both in the States and countless others around the globe wish this sad and useless imposter. Wow, were simple folk taken in … and of course so many dirty Republicans and hangers-on lapped up the instant glory (and power). Integrity and morality need a more current currency.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8320797/Donald-Trump-claims-DID-pandemic-plan-makes-press-secretary-brandish-it.html#v-8895734953622024853

I’m sickened at the dregs that come forward to hang on to the ‘Idiot in Chiefs’ coat tails, it genuinely does get worse and worse.

I feel so sorry for Dr Anthony Fauci…

Its obvious as a medical professional it is most frustrating to cope with a furious controlling and ineducable imbecile as d j trump. Inevitably yet more heads will roll at the instant there is disagreement from trumps tweet of the day byline which of course wavers at whim from whatever is projected from Fox News or from his immediate handlers Mnuchin, Pence or granddaddy Putin; the only good thing about all this is that trumps total inabilities are constantly revealed, trump insistently jeopardises any meaningful handling of the cv-19 epidemic, particularly for the ordinary, poor and vulnerable and the few remaining trump zombie voters must surely start to realise they have been duped.

Its my opinion these last few days here in the UK we need to look to unloosen a little the business clampdown, no-one mentions on media news that often if a business fails the owner loses everything, house, savings etc…. merely to save a few lives of mostly folk that have compromised health already. Sounds callous, but the economic disaster known as lockdown is too destructive if it is carried on as we hear yesterday for another year. Remember the spine-chilling term ‘herd immunity’ this is exactly what it means. I feel sorry for city dwellers, its no more than semi-urban here, distancing is easier. Maybe that’s why the Saxons moved to the country, away from Roman towns and cities!  The clampdown CAN be loosened a little, after all it is the medical and healthcare workers we need to specifically cordon off from public encounters, so far no-one mentions this but they will; they will have to.

Good sense in my mind would be to loosen up soon and carry into autumn, then clamp down again when the season of coughs and sneezes descends upon us. I think we are going to have to live with the fact of 1k deaths a week if that means we avoid financial disaster, economic disaster ie trading and personal disaster ie losing the roof over your head and the psychological disaster of being cooped up in low grade accommodation or abusive unpleasant partners or unruly children.  My heart bleeds for people in less fortunate circumstances, for the poor and vulnerable.

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

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!

trump incompetence …

We normally put up with donald j trump, the ultra part-timer and the utter incompetent ‘Clown in the White House’, trump is the fly in the ointment; we allow him to hiss, accuse and blether his way through soundbites and for yet another day to project outwards his tissue thin façade of so-called ‘competence’. But now with cv-19 its time to man-up so to speak and realise trump is now responsible for many innocent lives being lost which most certainly upsettingly compounds his already relentless attempts to wreck, to induce fear and anxiety.

Realise, its not what trump says that matters, its what he does (or wrecks). trump knows most near all of his face to face media encounters are mere ‘blether-fests’.

This article helps assemble and gain an overall view of the disaster zone called donald j trump …

Heres good sense from Noam Chomsky, interviewed by Amy Goodman.

 

 

 

Also, interesting …. https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/studying-fascist-propaganda-by-day-watching-trumps-coronavirus-updates-by-night

 

 

And heres my little cartoon, quite accurate I think.

Why is it ….

… the funny little fella Anthony Fauci has every time to be running his hands all over the presidential lectern. Its as if he’s in love with it and cannot get his hands on it enough! I’m glad I don’t have to touch it after he’s been around; but hey …. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/06/hydroxychloroquine-trump-coronavirus-drug

Here he is Dr Anthony Fauci …. a complete and utter buerk. Maybe I need to go tell him “Keep yr hands to yourself” ! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Fauci

Regardless of whether he has just washed his hands (I’m sceptical) … he should not be touching anything. Funny how certain people get to the top!

A case in point is d j trump, how did he get to the top! The Guardian quotes trump as pronouncing he has no time or truck with I quote ” But we don’t have time to go and say, ‘Gee, let’s take a couple of years and test it out, and let’s go and test with the test tubes and the laboratories.’”

‘…the test tubes and the laboratories’.

No-one has seen trumps educational record or tax record and one cannot help but wonder of whatever was presented would be trumped up, to be phoney, fake, fake as in most of what trump is associated with. trump was and is ineducable, incapable of learning very much. Dictators were often ignorant, trump is merely just another; but how sad he influences and controls to such an extent, we now read that trump has forbidden Fauci from saying anything. trumps over-bearing ignorance surely should never be tolerated. Every misdemeanour, possibly many each day further strengthen this clown.

 

Trump is a clown, an exceedingly dangerous and disruptive 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.
