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.

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 …

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

How much does google store?

This is quite sick, what a fine job we’ve done on surveillance, who would have thought George Orwell was so prescient.

 

 

From the New Yorker …. how much on the web is phoney and fake. Its curious how trump endlessly slings ‘fake’ at the Press but in fact they are the highest bastion, the last bastion against an otherwise quite easily manipulated  source of our news. Witness the Ruskis. Its very annoying to me as it must be to all journalists and newspapermen and the general population to witness trump act so dishonestly. Anyone and everyone deserves better than this. Its only a minority that applauds trump, always has been and luckily now without Russian help he is failing on so many fronts this small base is shrinking rapidly.  Given time we can get adults and educated people back into the White House, people of experience and higher values, that can work, make an effort and have the common good in their minds.

(trump)

How we will detest that name, that term in years to come. Synonymous with confusion and backward progress unique to trump.

Huffing and puffing, endlessly faking it, a low-down rotten-useless pantomime dame, everything including any mindful consideration reduced to a tiny dollop of a minute or two; the ultimate tv manipulator.

He is wasting the time of America and the world. I’ve met kids like him at school, what he has should have been thrashed out of him sixty years ago.

Recently a pointless grossly expensive charade to Iraq to not meet one Iraqi, turning it into mindless brainless selfies and MAGA hats. And the carbon footprint!

Now he wants to eject controls re pollution for coal burning. HOW UTTERLY out of step.

But he’s not as stupid as he seems, his progress has been to hammer a carefully graded wedge into the heart of America. To rive friends, families, towns regions into polarized camps. Wow, no-one even thought two years ago a cardboard tv reality actor could or would have achieved such devastation. He had prostitutes urinate on a bed in Russia, his own grave will be pissed on freely.

trump is strangling democracy, twisting a tourniquet on free thinking, stamping a jackboot onto the throats of the needy, he does nothing but create anxiety, set neighbour against neighbour.  And very clever at it too !

trump and his multi-pronged attack on decency and truth …..

I.C.E. Detention cruelly remote …

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.

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  …..

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.
