this is frightening …

Lara trump … utterly adrift from any sense of common decency, higher purpose, or Public Service. Money and the power that it brings drives them, is their God; its extraordinary such limited people have been able to gain tenure in the White House.

trump himself has no coherent Foreign Policy, knows nothing or can follow any Economic arguament, is destroying all he touches, is not in any sense suited to the role of President of the United States. Its all ‘front’, shallow veneer, no real depth; shunning his experts and scientists, his intelligence professionals, etc etc. Just as what he is, a crumby tv show persona.

For this woman Lara trump to utter such obscenities anywhere near the precincts of a democracy makes me cringe. A frightening social, intellectual and moral plunge from reality. They are too far removed and always have been during their lifetimes to have any real idea of fulltime working people on ordinary wages. To pull the trick of a shutdown and back up such absurdity to defend it is outrageous.

Politics in the US and specifically the Republican Party  has been hijacked by greedy money-obsessed overly self regarding undesirables, or is it more accurate to say the dark invisible influencers have drawn in anything trump to do their bidding, much as Putin secretly admits to himself ‘are useful idiots’. trumps rallies are distinctly stage-managed, witness recently the trigger word BS and immediately the hired stooges chant ‘USA USA USA’. This is what sensible reasonably honest people are up against, arch-manipulation.

Its as if the worst examples of glossy ‘society magazines’ have burst from the page to be made real and melded with the nastier parts of DC comics. We know that money, accumulated influence rule the roost… maybe they always had … but there has always been in the last 100 years a political arena and a democratic process to rein in such greedy self advancement. The trumps have no shame. Under what the trumps represent and are driving towards workers are mere fodder en masse to feed the economy. As with all things trump the insults donald hurls are most applicable to himself ie FAKE.

Politics is the mechanism whereby a better more just society can be promoted, with someone of the likes of Lara as below, decent values are being crowded out. I shudder to think of the conversations and phone calls that occur behind closed doors.

The first link is what prompted me to write this piece …

Below, this is repulsive, she is repulsive …. at 00:40 the callous disregard to real life is frightening.

 

 

I cannot believe I heard this !

Kelsey Grammer just destroyed his bookings for the forthcoming ‘Man of la Mancha’  bbc r4 0830 and tells us he likes what he hears from donald j trump, had voted for him and the full two years later is still okay with what he hears.

This is utterly baffling. We have a screaming outright idiot/ dictator in the White House and the bbc r4 are able to pull off this stunt! I have always maintained there is bbc bias, an agenda, a viewpoint but this goes against all common sense and decency.

Another instance how ‘the world out there’ is increasingly distorted, the break-away seven from the Labour Party are in my opinon to be applauded, to have had the nerve to dump an unusable system called the Labour Party under Corbyn. Clever fella Corbyn, good on camera, loves his little loudspeaker van, always able to deride the party in power yet generally has no policy of his own, would be disastrous in power; one gets the feeling too much time spent watching, ruminating, but reacting (albeit often v slowly) … but no forward energy. Without T May as a punchbag its hard to know what he thinks.

We are in a strange place, the disastrous Brexit will destroy any UK car manufacturing and the supply chain, we were sold a simplified idea of the future. With what we know now Brexit would never happen, yet T May steam rollers on regardless. Those responsible for this simplified over-sell have a great deal to answer for. Perhaps the over-simplified ‘sell’ was an indication of their own limited abilities?

How we think, reach a viewpoint is quite odd nowadays, information is not necessarilly enlightenment. trump rides on this, tv show experience he knows fine well is all he need know.

Theres a common thread in all this, Brexit and trump … its the destruction of present evolved systems and trading partnerships. I shudder as perishable goods / agriculture will fare in the present situation. With trump I’d say he’s knocking down the little men, the smaller producers to allow his bigtime new friends to hoover up any opportunity at knock down prices.

Lets look at how being connected, the digital superfluity of so-called connectedness is diminishing the human experience … https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/84273524/posts/2177568231

 

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 …

https://edition.cnn.com/politics/live-news/trump-speech-shutdown-border/index.html

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.
