The bar is in the mud …

… this is how low it has got.

No-one needs to poke fun at the numskull trump, he does perfectly well himself.

Yet the same moron is capable of so much nastiness, so much disruption and destruction. Polarizing, antagonising, endlessly creating enemies.

Slo-mo train wreck trump.

I’ll add bits and pieces as they appear …

Trump’s gut-driven picks continue to collapse

bbc r4 ‘Any Questions’ missed the point.

bbc r4 Saturday afternoon after the one o’clock lunchtime news treats us to ‘Any Questions’ followed by ‘Any Answers’ where old people ring in to ramble on. Yet here I am also participating as listener audience and as yet do not want to be lumped together with batty old … etc.

One of the half dozen questions was regarding trumps recently announced visit to Britain for the D-day memorial events; trump whether we like it or not is President of the USA our closest ally at that time.

What no-one mentioned is that post-Brexit we will do trade deals with anyone and everyone that will shake hands and agree to do so. Its called ‘backs against the wall’ Britain and therefore we will do trade deals with all and sundry just to glean a semblance of hope. You can wave goodbye to any form of UK motor industry and the multivarious supply chain. Which side of a 100k jobs in that industry alone?

What no one mentioned despite the endless ‘worthy’ hot air was that Pres Bone Spurs couldn’t even get his backside out of a hotel room, unglue himself from the tv / twitter and attend a pre-planned ceremony at a cemetary of American war dead a few months ago. Drizzle or a little bit of wet would seem to scupper his attendance; if perhaps Pres Bone Spurs did not have so contrived a ‘hairdo’ he could do what other men would have found to be no problem whatsoever.

What no one mentioned is the disgust we feel in the Free World that trump has deliberately taken such a regressive dark turn to dismantle and wreck all that was built up as ‘good’ for his country. Maybe that needs qualification, he resides in the USA and has endeavoured to pay as little tax as possible ie falsification, schemes, inflated values contrasting reduced values to grossly inflated when it suited him, etc etc. Yet one wonders what is his real country of residence … Russia?

…and what no-one mentioned is that trump is merely a short term fly in the ointment of what is otherwise a close cordial relationship that will continue far beyond any memory of things Trumpian.

What no-one mentioned when citing the past visit of Xi Jin Ping 习近平 (tones 2,4,2 something even the bbc is clueless about) …  is that the Xi2 is endeavouring to modernise, to reach forward to universal world values, to do better, is doing better when viewed in modern Chinese history whereas trump is hell bent at going in a backwards direction and inciting unease, anxiety, hatred and polarising any and all caste, creed, religion. His moslem ban is stupid beyond belief, stupid beyond belief sort of sums him up. Remember trumps obscene tax handbacks to the already super-wealthy.  In trumps world the bigot reigns supreme! So any comparison with X2i jin4 ping2 and trump is not clear cut, one aims higher, the other wrecks and regresses endlessly, of poor intention; therefore the latter is undesirable, toxic, unwelcome.

trumps manner is to never allow anything other than the glibbest shallowest platitudes with other World Leaders or the Free Press apart of course from in depth briefing sessions from his Master ie two hours unscripted with Putin in Helsinki, no minutes taken or even allowed, no other person of western heritage or US Official allowed. Wow – you cannot get creepier than that, it is what it looks like, it is treason and only trump himself so brass-faced and thinking himself above any law whatsoever would have had the gall to attempt such a shameful exhibition of treachery. Hence a fifteen minute walk-out with Kju and a huge banquet gone to waste, as all scripted by his Master so that Putin can sweep in, wipe up and gain influence.

So therefore I consider the bbc r4 ‘Any Questions’ invited panel to have made serious omissions in regarding trump and the dreaded visit. Lots of pontificating but they didn’t get to the main moral and ethical arguament. Basically the baseline is that trump is repulsive.

It baffled me later in the day on extended news when we had a few words from a pundit telling us how popular trump is, how great his base in America, this I doubt; bbc r4 news bias always endeavours to bend any objective truth to trumps advantage, luckily ‘The World Tonight’ programme at 10pm is a little bit more realistic.

hilary and biden capable of so much, wiki/Xi_Jinping and xi working to enter the mainstream, the forward moving world, but trump when he ’emerges’ is nothing but a bigot hell bent on turning the clock back to darker days.

 

 

trump: I’m frightened now.

The dreadful nastiness of donald j trump now needs to be reined in. His intent is clear and he represents a regressive mindset far worse than anything visualised as ‘the swamp’. trumps downward spiral needs to now be reined in, for decency to be pressed upon him and his unsuitability for high office made clear. However today we read trump and his tweets are getting most unpleasant, sinking to lower depths of ignorance…

Ilhan Omar, isn’t she lovely, its in her face! Likewise with AOC, these are valuable and much needed people.

Some of the nicest people I’ve ever met are Moslem and Pakistani. To berate such people is silly trending toward sick. Offenders such as trump and I guess Stephen Miller and others in the creaking decrepit wagon called the White House have most evidently inadequete and shrivelled cold hearts, their paucity of human compassion is deplorable. It also indicates they seem to have read so little, never sampled the world at large as from the printed page; their minds and hearts have never got out of first gear. As with all con artists, fantasists and bluff merchants anything other than a ten second bar-room soundbite is beyond them. Nothing wrong with such brevity in its self among ordinary folk but not fit for a President.

We know for instance trumps only reading of a serious newspaper is to work across the page with his bigboy marker to see how many times his name appears, theres no comprehension, no insight, no learning. The racists such as we see attaching themselves to the trump bunker and to trump himself are narrow and cold, certainly lacking in completeness as civilised humans.  Perhaps their own guilt and shame fuels at lashing out at others they perceive as different, after all trump has quite happily mocked the handicapped. With climate change ahead we haven’t time for this nonsense. trump is immature, always was and is ignorant, always was.

Little better than a snot-nosed playground bully from the backward class.

I see a great similarity with Mao and trump, both were determined to establish chaos and set people against each other. And Mao of course just like trump in his ignorance could never accept the notion he had made a mistake, or did not understand practical reality, both are highly impractical. Likewise, Mao and trump will so quickly turn against a previously devoted member of staff. The similarities of Mao and trump are quite uncanny.

Its quite accurate to compare Mao and trump as alike …

  • insulated from reality.
  • impractical in the extreme, Mao was extraordinarilly impractical.
  • endlessly creating chaos, delighting in chaos.
  • turning upside down established practices and customs.
  • secretive, above the common masses as if breathing rarified air.
  • hidden schemes and projects.
  • brazen, capable of violence, no compassion, much like trumps beloved sharks.
  • thinking only of themselves.
  • knowing how to manipulate/control media, to create a cult, to create fear.
  • can do no wrong.
  • will easily drop and destroy anyone that served them.
  • deliberately sets person against person.
  • its trump / Mao they serve, not the nation.
  • experts are ignored.
  • sycophants promote absurd non-truths and their masters ignorance zealously.
  • Russias influence on 1950’s and 1960’s China has never been fully revealed… just as with trump!
trump and his multi-pronged attack on decency and truth ..... a misguided and dangerous fool, the ultimnate con-man.

trump and his Fascism …

NAST NASTY donald j trump who revels in cruelty, a toxic brew of ignorance and callous disregard. Theres lots of dirty over-moneyed numskulls behind him, I shudder to think what conversations occur behind closed doors. And yet the likes of Pence a ‘so-called’ Christian is of such low morals he tags along for the ride, his only chance to feel power on his lips. A pun for Pence … very definitely small change.

trump is emboldened after the emasculation of the Mueller Report, goodness knows what whacky dirty schemes he has afoot, installed stooge Barr aiding his tricks.

I think we need to brush up on our history, how dangerous it is to think the little people the ordinary can be bullied and herded along and we needn’t take notice, to not help them; as much like trump delights in wielding the power of Presidential Office toward a helpless better life seeking refugee we need to regard their feelings and consider kindly what it is they would prefer.

trump the utter fascist, the liar and trouble maker fantasist that he is needs to be recognised for what it is. trump is hellbent on creating imbalance and disharmony; ignorance developed to an artform, as artless as it is; very much the schoolboy bully / thug.

The skilfull gradation of his onslaught is indeed very clever, you cannot say ‘moron’ or idiot because he in his horrible trumpian way is very clever, a nastiness gone crazy, thrown to its limit. trump is inded dangerous, his deliberate denigration and assault on the Free Press, his courting of dictators and to promote all that insults developed society.

These people below were uncertain, bewildered and whimsically excused every insult and deprivation that was pushed onto them until it was too late. No-one should be forced to do anything in this world that they do not willingly desire.

Cautious, not sure, herded along by the distant influence of an overpowering dictator

We need to hear this (AOC) …

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez speaks her conscience when many turn aside and would rather not voice any criticism. A fine incisive mind, that can detect crusty old nonsense, unthinking bigotry and perpetuated un-earned privelige from a great distance.

Anyone that has a small asteroid named after them has to be worth knowing !

This world and particularly America needs clarity of thought, to ask for actions to be justified, for people to be held accountable for misleading and less than honourable intentions. Its was a fine moment to witness AOC make it plain and clear when questioning Michael Cohen a few weeks ago that trump deliberately misled and knowingly falsified figures, knowing how it would increase his financial positon with phoney over-valued assets and property for insurances purposes and wifully undervalued assets by huge amounts so as to minimize and falsify his tax position.

Well done Alexandria for making this plain and clear to us all.

We need role models, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is an exemplary role model, donald j trump is not, yet the USA is saddled with him, literally saddled, he is riding America.

Thank goodness she is entering her prime, I extend my greatest heartfelt wishes to her continuing good work. A real person with real abilities and life experience, AOC majored in International Relations and Economics.

Why has trump got off lightly?

Who would have thought merely developing yourself into a brand (tv reality, hotel branding, real estate, etc) would one day get you into the White House! As from his pal and mentor Roy Cohn ‘hit ’em hard’ and ‘go after them fifty times the force at which they criticise’. Yup, seems to be the modus operandi of the Assailant in Chief.

William Barr is serving the purpose he was installed for, to nueter the Mueller Report and hand over a totally inadaquete resume. I hope in time all will be revealed, the stink of trump and two hours alone with Putin in Helsinki is alone worthy of the charge of treason. Emerging, trump looked shaken. 

I’m vexed hearing the Mueller Report has no real bite. trump himself admitted he doesn’t trust email and uses couriered envelopes for sensitive information in his business dealings. Far better look at his UPS / Fedex account!  After all this time, the trumps now seem more fireproof than cld be imagined. We must remember there will be some very creepy old men pickled in wealth that know fine well they have a useful idiot installed, I shudder at what conversations occur behind closed doors, Putin too. He will bankrupt America just as he has bankrupted his own inherited wealth. Its so very ironic that a decade of tv skills have served trump and Ivanka so very well, as long as they can keep coming up with five second sound bites there will always be a third of the voting population that are hoodwinked; that seems to be the nature of ‘ornery folk. BBc r4 hourly news bulletins for instance and PM at 5pm always report trump in such an uncritical glowing light to the point of being most certainly misleading; any blind person relying solely on what should be high integrity news source wld have a totally false idea of what trump is up to. .

Three generations from brothel keeper to President.

trumps hatred of moslems is stupidity itself, trump is inciteful, destabilising, non-inclusive … likewise his denigration ppl of colour, and the southern border. He has no real education, no sense or knowledge of history – the human story, struggles with the printed word, has buried any school reports. Everything about trump is sham, ‘brag and front’, for the photo-op, for the soundbite. My opinion is that its climate change that trump fully realises (but will not admit) is the reason for his stubborn insistence on the wall. As typical with trump he says the opposite of what he really thinks and always his insults are most applicable to himself.

In my opinion the young people that form the caravan to the southern border are hungry to work, to better themselves; trumps beloved drug dealers and thugs he doesn’t seem to realise will move to and fro as they wish in their vehicles, not needing to walk. And i would think most immigrants will be only too pleased to pay the necessary taxes as required, to get a lucky break to start anew in the USA as has been the custom this last two hundred years.

trump is all about fascism, self interest, imagined superiority, all these things are repulsive.

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.
