the fake president…

Mr tv himself known as donald trump increasingly exposes his callous disregard for all good and decent values and his disdain for ordinary folk ie the general populous. Waving a Bible in front of a church pre-cleared of meddling and unwanted ‘undesirables’ (which in donalds and ivankas eyes have no meaning, no relevance, regarded as worthless) … as a stage managed photo-op for as all that mattered to ultra narcissist trump and ivanka his script writer and stage manager in attendance for daddy, probably an even more extreme version of daddy himself if truth be known. As with everything trump its all just a tv show. Its all he knows, is all Ivanka is trained for, has experience of and is all that matters to them, the stage managed photo-op. We can assume this is what occupies ivankas thoughts that’s of course when she is not in endless hours of hair, makeup, clothes, beauty etc etc.

Three years have been wasted with trump and years more will be needed to re-install all the wrecked safeguards and legislation that trump and his dark devious lobbyists have thrown aside ie the gagged and dismembered EPA. The trump family and suchlike are indeed fascists, fakery at its height

His southern lobbyists wrapped in the guise of so-called Christians are indeed shameful, think Mitch McConnel etc … southern oil money and extractive industries sure are too big for their boots, hence installing overseer Pence to ensure their vested interests are foremost on the agenda; otherwise useful idiot trump would have not got the backing to succeed. Interesting programme re this a couple of evenings ago on bbc r4.

Signals have emerged, Biden on needing to use the military if needed to oust the truth denier trump and entourage when the results come in, and two Generals stating they will not deploy the army on the streets at trumps behest. This is a sort of coded message, men if need be collectively refuse trumps insane wishes. Genl Mark Mulley twisting in anguish at being so obviously stage managed, set up for a fool, thank goodness he has publicly admitted things are wrong.

Its hard to believe such reckless crowds assembling at this time of covid-19 volatility and climate change seems practically forgotten about.

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

 

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.

Mr Floyd seemed so gentle …

So sad, poor George Floyd, its horrifying the depths these entrenched and bigoted so-called ‘Police Officers’ will stoop.  I assume we can term it institutionalised racism, they must know exactly what answers to provide on psychological profiling. I know others that play the game just the same.

trump always wanted the military on the streets of America, now his wish has been granted. Note lower case, I deny trump a capital letter to his name.

Somehow peace must return but pressure must be maintained at injustice. The likes of Bill Barr sicken me; low forms of life, of charlatans and whores that dance for money. Rich girl Ivanka and landlord Jared (son of a corrupt and banged up father) should never have been allowed anywhere near the White House; the list is endless, Stephen Miller for instance.

The crumbling citadel named trump must surely now fall;  please, God …. must fall.

Heres a useful feed on the situation … https://twitter.com/JenniferJJacobs

 

ps … have you noticed how absent this phoney president really is at every level …

  • the contrived and phoney hair arrangement – imagine the time it takes!
  • the pathetic utterly pathetic attempt by backward boy Donnie trump to read a teleprompter … MR PHONEY !!
  • all that America has in the WH is a fake, a swamp animal.
  • note, mr tv animal / invented creature under that suit, trump wears a corset … forever a phoney, a fake, a mere tv image.

I would suggest trump has achieved everything he planned for as outlined in his disastrous Inaugration Speech, something which drove me to tears in its awfulness, its awful inappropriateness in wanting to destroy all good things, to generate mayhem, to reduce people to their most desperate and fearful, to bring the military onto the streets, and now all trumps boxes to himself appear checked. I just wonder if the foul brutality of Mr Floyds death and a totally needless death were in fact on trumps list of ‘things to do’ so as to in his own mind propel the media away from his disastrous covid-19 performance, the already worsening economic situation caused by Trumpian inability and to propel himself forward as the ‘King of Law and Order’.

trump gets corseted up each day …

Yes I think he does, surely its obvious!

To look at him in his business suits yes its a corset job. What with the contrived hair-do and the fake tan all you can see is fake …. as is matched by his blether.

Yet more fakery and tv illusion. However his bile and distaste of learning, of science and any proven experience is very real and deep.

Heads are rolling, careers destroyed, bimbos promoted and yet still he maintains office, a puppet himself but to all beneath him in hierachy hell bent on confusion and maladministration.

Whatever trump says the opposite is probably true ie “People are saying” mostly refers petty musings of his own imagination, all is gloss, all is soundbite and tv. Yet as Noam Chomsky tells us trump is indeed very clever in a nasty destructive way.

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.

Have you noticed?

In the UK the conversation presented on bbc r4 news can verge to the puerile and simplistic, only Marc Mardell say Sunday at 1pm and the consistently worthwhile ‘The World Tonight’ keep me interested. Filler pieces on the bbc r4 5pm slot can often be over extended and need drastic editing, in fact often wasting time when I’m sure theres lots more we can hear about of this world. It must be mighty frustrating for daily commuters to be served such slow paced puerile fare.

I actually applaud the new slogan ‘Be Alert’ its my opinion we need to get a lot of the workforce back into action. Sports events I can do without, likewise I never eat out in restaurants so why are they needlessly pushed as being so essential! Therefore to ‘Be Alert’ is vital, to stop any under 2m proximity, prolonged encounters and needless conversation. It was interesting to hear Prof Marc Woodhouse at lunchtime being of the opinion cv-19 transfer is low when out of doors. I think the UK is needlessly restrictive at this point ie first week May. So much of the non healthworker population should be allowed nearer a normal productive life. The Governments restrictions of ALL UK citizens is over simplistic and hence over damaging to most everyone and everything.

Too much emphasis has been placed on nice words which are at disjoint from reality and whats happening ‘on the ground’ … witness PPE and testing … both are victim to blether and whitewash. At 5pm listening to Rishi Sunak makes me think we need more ‘bite’, less nice feeling ramble, items of PPE and testing has proven to be not what we are told it is ie British manufacturers still exporting PPE and the disjoint twixt testing hype and reality is a scandal. 

We need a four or five month opening up of restrictions, say June thro October, what no-one is mentioning is that we’ve seen nothing yet until when we hit the ”season of coughs and sneezes’. I think we will have to suffer a weekly death toll for the sake of avoiding financial disaster, both individually and as a nation.

What is vital and again not being brought out into the open is the importance of cordoning all encounters and activities of medical and care workers. These folk are ‘hot’ so to speak and cannot be allowed to beak bio-security in the general community. This needs to be made plain.

The terms and expressions around this cv-19 problem seem hindered, not developed. Only today did we hear the use of ‘proximity and duration’ come into play and also my own term ‘breath projection’ as yet I’ve never heard anyone else use but surely an essential term especially when talking about facemasks and their efficacy.  The virus is super tiny but I guess needs droplets of breath to hitch a ride, hence ‘Be Alert’ is admirable.

trump has set a deadline (end of May) to disband his corona virus task force, in other words jettison Fauchi and I bet install wonderboy and I’ve read slum landlord Jared.

trump a day or two ago is mimicking exactly the manner, look and responses from when he was questioned and asked to read a document three years ago; he blustered, he mimicked un-concern …. reality was he couldn’t read. If this was any other person I would feel sympathy but not some intentional and blustering non-event d j trump. In other words he has given up, he is now a hollow man. My opinion is now that he wants merely to walk away, his tv skills may have fooled for a while but now he himself knows he is way out of his depth and will want to return to the comfort of his gilded apartment in Manhattan. Yes certainly trump is clever but not a cleverness I hold in esteem.

 

 

Forecasting what next …

With the virus shutdown there very seldom is any chemtrail to be seen (maybe say only something every three days)  and so now we have the problem such clear blue skies will aid heat absorption by the oceans. Therefore its my guess governments will put forward the idea quite openly that we need to spray our skies to hinder climate change and slow down the seas warming and hinder the crucial but inevitable and dreaded methane release.  For instance google for methane hydrate, an ice-free Arctic, thawing permafrost, East Siberian Ice Shelf.

I had a bad dream the other day,  quite horrible in fact, a total inept termed donald j trump (I deny him upper case) …. had become President of the United States !  One can only state that this is indeed beyond the realm of sanity … preposterous!

Here in the UK its my opinion the lockdown leaves a lot to desired, there is seemingly total refusal to deal specifically with those in health care and their immediate family, how in fact they are a ‘special case’ and need much greater rigour in how they circulate after they leave work. Has anyone mentioned this so far – looks to be not. They will; they will have to as too many ‘innocent people’ are being needlessly corralled. The sight of those silly pale blue plastic pinnies drives me nuts, the slightest breeze and they are flying around all over, as good as useless I assume.

Note the irony if that’s the word that the virus shutdown is in fact facilitating the reduction of carbon footprint, of unnecessary airflights etc – just what the planetary doctor ordered!  Huge sheds with respirators, much limited personal mobility, all as would be required when the methane time bomb hits.

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.

Lets use our brains …

Propaganda to the masses and bad thinking at the top are rife, epidemic. Some examples…

  • When trump tweets realise its not just his finger on the keyboard but in fact that little keyboard is a giga-powered propaganda machine with open input from any of his crooked and twisted lackeys and I include Ivanka and particularly Jared in this; the little keyboard of his phone (or more likely an office computer logged into trumps twitter feed) the most powerful meat grinder (unfortunately) in the world. Meat grinder in that trump and cohorts will quite happily sacrifice the poor and less fortunate to get past this lockdown, to mangle the truth at every convenience to trump and his constant revision of what he said the day before. At every turn, so many times trump likes to sacrifice the poor and helpless, think travel bans think border wall, all needless.
  • trump is the wrong man at the wrong time in the wrong position at least to all God fearing sane and decent citizens, yet to Putin trump is the right man in the right place at the right time, an unprecedented opportunity for exploitation. Of course trump is being massively exploited, I’m sure in my mind there is huge amounts of Russian money chanelled through trump activities, trump depends and needs this to survive as no American Bank will suffer him and remember the disgusting lovefest of trump and Putin at Helsinki; two hours behind closed doors, no American witnesses and no notes, trump emerging visibly shaken. This is sickening, trump indeed is skewered on Putins arm as some hapless dumb ventriloquists doll. Note trumps endless insistence that Russia did not meddle in the elections no matter the clamouring of US citizens at all levels, that Russia is his friend, that Russians have been invited and freely entered the Oval Office.
  • Everything trump issues as an insult or failing is in fact most applicable to himself;  everything from trump is a reversal of the truth and time-won practical experience, of established institutions, of knowledge and scientific data ie climate change, the environment, sleazy tax handouts to cronies, international relations, the respect to other religions and ways of life etc etc. He courts dictators. When he points the accusatory finger “Fake news” he in fact is the only fake in the room; shouldn’t therefore everyone point back silently, good move I think and we are quite entitled to do so however the irony would be that trump would assume the accusatory finger to be in fact a fascist salute and therefore an adulation!! As usual, with trump we are in a room full of mirrors. Personally I would also encourage public booing to somehow break the bubble of the would-be fascist Emperor and his hangers on after all he is so incredibly thin-skinned.
  • trumps obsession and over-repeated slogan “Drain the swamp” is now utterly most applicable to himself, no great swamp existed pre-trump but now boy-o-boy trump has created his very own sickening swamp by any standards. Note handler Mnuchin always standing by rooting for Big Money, likewise Pence to ensure a fundamentalist, regressive and backward doctrine are included, to be promoted at all times.
  • Truth is cooked up each day according to the whim or shallow fancy of trump, as cooked up as him unfathomable tax returns or unknown educational attainment, both we assume not worth the paper they are written on if only anyone could ever find them.
  • Mining the moon … one couldn’t make this up! This really is an exercise of sustainable living in hostile conditions, which has been foreseeable for the last couple of years, such as the dreaded impending methane release and subsequent chaos of interconnected climate feedback loops running out of control from the efficiency / efficacy of surging methane levels. Its not CO2 that will kill us but the much more damaging (say x120 fold) and much faster acting methane release in its three forms ie microbial from thawing permafrost, methane deposits trapped within the strata capped and held in place by permafrost and probably worst of all thawing subsea hydrates for instance the East Siberian Ice Shelf. These are huge areas, far bigger any one of them than Europe.
  • My opinion is that there is a limit to the gullibility of trumps so-called voter base, like most things of his its smaller than he says; soon trump fans will tire of the trump spiel and media hogging, even the most unthinking zombie-like adorer of the trump stance must surely quite soon see the light, the obscuring fakery of trump.
  • Has anyone realised the huge places recently constructed to die and equipped with respirators, a life of lockdowns, the end of personal freedom as of cv-19 are exactly what we will need when climate change kicks in hard? Which it will, the impending catastrophic increase of methane being the real ‘biggie’.
  • From my UK standpoint and I think near universal is insufficient regard taken with care and health workers, these special people need special treatment in safer distancing from family members and public, to be cordoned off in effect. The PPE scandal will not go away, neither the scandal of care home deaths being kept out of the cov-19 death toll. The early hours health and care worker shopping hour needs to be redefined as a means of increasing bio-security, so far no-one is taking this angle seriously enough. This would allow economies to loosen up and get a few more contributors working again. Issuing all care workers with a badge is exactly what one would have decided is the first step in identifying such workers and hey presto was announced a fortnight ago. Funny how this can be redefined as a means to separate out care and health workers from the general population, which I think would be utterly stupid not to do so, yet no-one specifically mentions this. this in some ways silly lockdown needs to be engineered more intelligently.
  • In essence we need to be more aware to separate the health and care workers from the rest of the general population, the latest tragic news of two sisters, both care workers to die reinforces the need to do this.
  • Quite seriously, why has no-one drawn attention to the lunacy of having a beard at this time, I would imagine a virus catcher par-excellence!

 

Postscript, nice to hear my words echoed and the exact words indeed as utilised by Polly Toynbee a few hours after I wrote them, great minds think alike!  Likewise two days later interesting to hear Nick on bbc r4 this morning  echoeing my particular sentiment that nice sounding words are useless when in fact in reality things don’t happen or the PPE isn’t delivered and the cv-19 testing just is not happening as they portray. I would term this a disjoint of delivery. The latest disaster is a recall for botched cv-19 testing, also the NHS and Government seeming to be ignoring the offers of PPE manufacturing and lab testing capacity in the UK. One couldn’t make this up!
