bbc r4 news bias…

… around 0800 BST here in the UK yet more incredulous bbc pro-trump bias from the rolling news programme BBC Radio 4 – Today, 06/05/2021

trump was referred to as ‘The President’ and within minutes as ‘Leader of the Republican Party’. One can throw all manner of words and insults toward donald j trump but one could never call him a politician!!!

This pro-trump bbc r4 unquestioning acceptance of the most lazy ill-educated and hapless encumbant of the White House with great manner to deceive and corrupt all he touches has for four years been presented in a most unreal light of bias from bbc r4 ‘Today’ morning news and interview programme.

We also heard a top-bod interview with facebook this morning (re trumps ban) and bbc r4 totally incapable of receiving as a ‘given’ that trump incited violence, encouraged ‘the wrong sort’ and generally we are informed revelled in the Capitol Jan 6th breakdown in Law and Order. A shouting mob and violent too, creating great fear and in fact injury and death. As one commentator remarked, imagine the crackdown if these were predominantly coloured folk; its a fact from transcripts and witness statements of security and police on duty that day that all security and awareness seemed deliberately to have been ‘wound down’.

What these hapless ‘grasping for a cause’ individuals and demented ‘rent-a-mob’ should realise is that the path into the Capitol is via the voting ballot, not by screaming, paramilitary attire and creating great fear in anyone not part of the rampaging rabble, its called democracy.

I think there was more ‘organisation’ went into this than is currently being discussed. And I think we know from what direction that came from; trump-the-destroyer.

Ironic, we have iphones and sophisticated cell phone technology yet all it has accomplished in this case is a clarion call to assemble these dangerous thugs, it all compounds to a scene no different than two thousand years ago. Later footage released of the ‘horned individual’ reciting some mumbo jumbo psuedo christian incantation / prayer in the Capitol was a most accurate portrayal of how skewed non-thinking and ignorant the whole escapade had become.

An end result of no substance and no way forward, just like trump himself.

The impracticality of trump …

I am a practical man and come from a long line of practical men.

trump is none of this, he can grift but as using the term in its British sense he cannot graft. He cannot roll up his sleeves and get ‘stuck in’. It would be a preposterous scene, his glaring orange make-up, the bizarre hair-do going in all directions…. knock-kneed impracticality.

So that is one measure of a man.

We can also surmise he is utterly unknowledgable, disconnected and uninterested in anything to do with the natural world (think climate change, and a gutted EPA) … unless of course its … a) exploitation, extraction and or to minimise environmental controls as pushed by some of the more sick of his backers and of course … b) trumps only realisation of the natural world being a golf course, the rest to him is ‘dirt’.

Therefore trump clearly displays the impracticality of Mao with the arrogance of baby born into greed, wealth and dishonesty (think Northern Counties).

To slightly mis-apply the term … trump is a pompadour!

Analysis of trump…

The term ‘analysis’ is most certainly pertinent to the circus family trump and its infamous now disgraced leader.

Embarrassment and incredulity runs high at observing how donald j trump clung to the obvious charade of it all being a fake election, so desperate at any cost to cling on to his re-election cash haul and the real knowledge that once out of office ‘his bacon is cooked’ so to speak. No human in history has lived the time it would take for the impending trump jailtime.

trump even ordered the deplorable spectacle of storming the Capitol as a last ditch thrash at self aggrandisement, outwardly and unusually silent other than cackling and whooping in private as the spectacle unfolded and doing what trump is good at …chaos.

Note how in the weeks following all the brag and bluster has evaporated to zilch, with ‘nothing to say’ which in essence is what trump was all along.

It beggars belief that a vacuous meaningless slogan and a red cap to match are sufficient to haul in so many needy and naive fools. Simplistic branding backed up with donald and ivankas talent for the ever present camera and very much stage managed rallies, note all in the backdrop are carefully selected; its all tv folks! All this adds up sufficient to hoodwink the gullible, those needy to belong to something with ‘an edge/ a take’ other than the routine, the legal or the honourable.

trump and Mao strangely have many similarities, ever thinking they know more than the experts, constantly ridding themselves of aides and colleagues, a penchant for ‘show’ meetings and discussions, projecting change but always for the worst; destruction, chaos, a total disregard of ordinary human life, economically totally inept. All the traits of Mao and trump.

The term ‘great’ as the lynchpin of trump sloganising really does not stand up to scrutiny, in one four year term trump has turned America into a crabbed stooping and hopeless old man, dirty, nothing to be proud of, shuffling toward old age.

Another trump key point is what I term his ‘janus finger pointing’ when all his wild accusations are in fact most applicable to himself, principally the term ‘fake’. This carried on to his protracted ‘stolen election’ rant, in fact most everything trump ever can utter is incorrect, a lie, the mouth of an uneducated ineducable sleaze merchant. He would have got nowhere in any professional career, unable to do the necessary reading or accumulation of knowledge, unable to listen, the attention span of a gnat and likewise zero intellectual curiosity. All of these deplorable traits are what we have observed time and time again. Schemes, many of which are coming back to haunt him seemingly an inherited trait from his father and grandfather, witness out west over a century ago, horsemeat, whores and gold.

The legacy of trump to my mind is how easily conned so many people were in joining his bandwagon, in swallowing the tv image.

There is nothing ‘great’ in turning back the needy and desperate from a country so big as the USA, I would like to think if I was in that position America would offer me a home, sanctuary. After all isn’t it the case most if not all such people will work hard and probably pay taxes, perhaps more taxes than those hell bent on massaging down every cent in their financial records a’la trump style.

The last four year of trump chaos and destruction beggar belief as if a badly written DC comic, witness the damage to the EPA, the damage to the environment, to the obfuscation and denial of climate change, the hurt and anxiety heaped upon the poor and needy. I think now its a ‘roll your sleeves up time’, to pursue and bring to justice the obviously guilty and move forward to brighter times.

Truly … this is greatness!

Ha ha ha … excuse me … more appropriately ‘smallness’.

Can anyone be taken in with this junk of trump? Totally obviously a fantasy ride of delusion from a master deceptionist. Look folks, his total presence, effort and capability rests solely on this bar-room banter from the podium. Nudge nudge snigger snigger we are sharing the secret with donald. Yes he’s adept but its all fakery, lies, phoniness. He’s good at it, a decade of crappy reality tv shows have trained and honed this fakester to what he is today.

A delusional trickster, suiting the purposes of the crooked, the greedy and Putin.

Note his audience is highly vetted to be a potent mix of adulatory numskulls, paid lackeys and stooges. Yet as long as it gets on tv the fakery continues to work its magic.

Below we see footage of the trickster in action which triggered me to write this post ….

Note they never let trump talk to an adult …

Have you noticed in the four year term of office trump never once was capable of an adult informed conversation. He is incapable of such a thing, no reading, no knowledge, no experience … nothing! trump bar room innuendo and brag serves as his mature and (un) evolved conversation, ‘Mr Paper Thin’ himself. I know people hereabouts that as long as one takes an ‘anti-brown’ stance or anti-Moslem, one is regarded as ‘in the fold, one of us’. Wow this is low-brow junk, well suited to the four years of now ended trump exploitation.

I am wholly justified in this criticism because the position demands and requires a person of high calibre (they can read, think, assimilate) and so the world was dealt a paper thin tv adept, totally out of his depth. Tellingly the ONLY in depth conversation for trump in four years of fakery was two hours with Putin in Helsinki, something which is without doubt the willing and criminal act of treason.

Theres such a thing as ‘standards’ ie of capability and effort, something continually lacking in the sad mockingly inept so-called presidency of trump. We are left with a covid response in tatters, a diminished cowering Fauci (shame upon him and Birx) and a long list of wrecking ball dismantlings and willfull neglect. Scientists and experts were much threatened, the EPA was emasculated, a silly wall amounting to a brainless chant, climate change was denied for a full four years, all these things are an insult to the human project, our existence and our intelligence.

trump is a freeloader, he has ridden America for four years, surely anyone can see this?

ie trump; The Great Pretender.

He’ll hang around though, pretending theres a future for him, but in reality he is a ‘Nowhere Man’. He’d better get ready for the orange jumpsuit. America needs to do this, it needs to exorcise itself of this stupidity.

Its called accountability…

.. and I hope everyone is fine by this.

I certainly am, my accounts are fully traceable, fully accountable, close to a penny in accuracy (even if I don’t even bother to put down trivial items) and I’m quite proud of the cheque I send for tax; it is as it were an ‘index of my success’. I play no games with the taxman, I make a profit and pay a slice of it for this country… its called not having any choice! You see, I don’t get around greasy individuals that know endless loopholes and dodges, that sort of person is not for me. However unlike a neighbour of mine that exhibits such indignation at paying £800 in £50k on his ! …. for many years this is far less than I provide to charity at half his income. Creep …..

Another creep is donald j trump, he too thinks that taxes are not for him, like an ill fitting suit best left in the store and rather not taken home. Well donald baby, what brought Al Capone to justice will likewise be served on donald j trump. As many commentators have stated, an orange jump suit will eventually be his permanent attire.

If a so-called (ex) President will not bend to the most basic and elementary accountability then when why for goodness sake was he ever allowed anywhere near the White House? Why is it he is still in the news cycle and still has hapless fools regarding him? trump is no politician, merely a stooge for Putin, a stooge for the crooked GOP and a stooge for his mountain of debt.

Is this the failure of education?

donald j trump is NO politician …

I’ve heard some terrible names applied to donald j trump but POLITICIAN is most certainly the most inaccurate and most certainly the most inapplicable that one could imagine.

Snake oil salesman, conman, pretender, fake, fool, creep yes all are applicable but never politician.

trump cares nothing for the good and betterment of the ordinary American citizen, cares nothing for the nurture and development of the USA (other than tax handbacks to his big-money backers) … even the determining of what is ‘his country’ is uncertain. Putin to donalds mind seems more credible and certain than the USA, witness donalds certainty he’d rather believe Putin than his the USA Intelligence Services, donald is quite open and vocal on the matter.

This is treason, trump is a traitor and at the most elementary level a waste of time.

America has been let down badly with four years of trump fakery and wannabe dictatorship.

As I’ve said many times, any remaining sad and pointless trump backer needs to sit down with pen and paper and with meaning and good sense try to state in their own words what it is beyond the MAGA slogan that they think … a) trump means by this and … b) where trump is going / will achieve in the years to come. I think we will find just as with the pointless MAGA slogan there is no value or worth to anything trump. People have been hoodwinked and conned. Wake up!

The scandal of it all…

trump got off, at least for impeachmant, this is scandalous!

trumps cotton-stick wooden doll defence team were third grade buffoons, chancers at the Last Choice Saloon, screwing up at every turn but as with the cavalry the old diehard truth deniers Lynsey Graham et al all came to the rescue, stood by defending what is illegal and criminal and needs to be put right, justice must be seen to be done.

This now needs to be turned into criminal proceedings. trump has signalled criminals of all kinds need not fear justice or the judgement and norms of morality and ethics, the stage is set for Gotham disorder just as in the comic books. trump and his stooges still cling on to the vacuous pointless MAGA punchline, none of them or any of his supporters being able to expand quite what needs to be ‘again’ or what the ‘greatness’ is they are looking for. You mean I ask ‘strong arm illegality’ as per fascism?

trumps defenders citing his now absence from the White House as voiding any requirement for Impeachment is a stupid reasoning, is mincing words and truth denial, no matter how many days or months pass after the crime justice must be served. Just goes to show as per the old German Fascist observation from the 1930’s and Second War that make sure your lies are big ones.

trump has sown what in future years will be the further shrivelling of the United States in all respects, Putin has got what he wanted. Kids are useless hung up on phones and pointless media, minorities are fearful, the stinking rich ever more stinking. Four wasted years of Climate Denial, of denial of any truth or good sense.

Impeachment, criminality and treason.

When a so–called president of the United States spends two hours alone with Putin in Helsinki this should be sufficient reason to be removed from Office. There must be upwards of fifty counts or a hundred counts of total dereliction of duty that likewise we would think totally extinguish any hope of this man ever getting a single vote again in the democratic process but contrary to common sense and plain sight flagrance of Office trump still attracted millions of votes! My big beef is that nowhere from his comedy caravan of sycophants and brand promoters do we hear the term democratic process. This is shameful, of course scandalous and to my mind demonstrates bias on a monumental scale, the line of ‘win / lose’ constantly being promoted as in a one-dimensional world when in fact democratic process has been seen and democratic choice has been made.

There is no such thing as winner or loser in role of President, its merely a four year term of Office for being selected by a majority from the voting populus, they have chosen the person to go ahead and give four years of their best effort, this is not a coconut-shy or a lottery or a race track event; no-one has a god-given right to be there other than by a fair and democratic process.

When the course of a country is determined by one group endlessly to shout louder or hell bent on frightening the other group then we are looking at ignorance writ large ie fascism. If this were not enough the endless trump denigration and constant mockery of the Free Press and of any open opinion or established free thought indicates again another arm of encroaching fascism. The list is endless, a pantheon of strong arm ignorance, its all tv, its all made for show and to capture the lost and lonely ie of assumed matey-ness bolstered my dubious social media, an obsession with rallies, of rambling familiarity. It is sickening and degrading to see wilful persecution be it race, gender, colour or of the blindness to the environment, the erosion of goodwill of International Relations, to shrivel on the world stage, but this is quite comical because trump the man himself is in fact a coward, of no moral fibre or integrity, is blatantly ignorant of truth and the real world, the wider world. Yet this uneducated stance is deliberate so as to mobilise a certain strata of aggrieved populace, a cynical vote-catching and manipulation, something which trump revels in.

The immortal words “disinfectant, maybe we could inject disinfectant, I’ve heard its very good, we could use light, bright light maybe on the inside etc etc ” ….. will forever demonstrate the stupidity and chaos of trump and should never be forgotten.

Its as if the White House itself will need to be disinfected, to re-engage with the wider world, to join in and contribute, to possibly once again lead, all things that trump has no idea of.

Of course trump will say he wants to run again, after all … he wants to pocket the re-election fund.

To my mind the complete trump cavalcade these last four years was very careful devised, careful gradations of chaos and insanity to devolve good sense and decency into a mire of self aggrandisement and brand promotion for the Ruling Family known as trump. In other words as with all trump Janus pronouncements to in fact bring the swamp to Washington, trump accuses ‘fake’ when he is in fact the biggest fake of all. Front of camera skills, chirring helicopter engines and greed for power and mockery of the weak being sufficient to cling on to Office.

Its all ‘tv’ to the tv family groomed for this tv role, the cast of this grim tv cartoon including beautiful Ivanka, dimples Jared, broad shouldered hardly speaking Pence, emascualted Dr Fauci, silent Birx, big money Mnuchin and a whole crew of short duration walk-ons all subservient to donald and all quite baffling!

When science, truth, knowledge, free press, good reason, care and inclusivity are thrown to the wind trampled on (to trample is a fascist thing) then most certainly this is an unwanted fascism. Not once will you be able to get a trump supporter to put into words and deliver any meaningful dialogue as to why they promote and cling to the vacuous and moronic maga slogan. Set the ardent trump supporter to sit at a desk and write in their own hand what trump stands for, where he is going and what would be the outcome. This diabolical trump Administration has been like being in a fairground or theme park, trump thinking goes no deeper; trump is the barker with his pretend testosterone.

With the latest impeachment surely to goodness all can see a distinct two pronged attack from the mindless trump brand that enabled a criminal and diabolical storming of the Capitol, Don jr being particularly odious in this from youtube footage and djt a supposed fake President we are informed delighted at the mayhem; but most certainly there were other organisers and factions employed to excite and accelerate the hapless, coralled and manipulated as a behind the scenes frenzy to save the public witnessing the worse excesses of trumpism. It wasn’t just djt or the others on the podium that whipped up this stupidity. Ever signalling the clenched fist the fascist salute, approval from the top.

postscript … bbc r4 at 5pm with the dreadful Evan Davis this evening 9th Feb 2021 should be ashamed of himself, STILL PUSHING a likely good outcome for the golden turd; that there is mileage in the values of the Capitol insurrection ! … Wow I can sense bias, can no-one else? They were to tell us of the value of the mob, how a majority were business owners, were CEO’s (!) and white collar workers and all this would lead to ‘a movement’. Excuse me but WTF! I heard it with my own ears. As with yesterday and wimbling pathetic Evan Davis’ feeble attempt at a spotlight on the needless destruction of the UK fishing industry post Brexit with disastrous EU red tape, hardly a surprise as the EU have always wanted to see the end of UK fishing. The UK fishing industry is in freefall, its a 9/11 event. And Gove the arch-jester still putting on a face.

These are not correct …

…. its no big deal but certainly I think these two examples show misunderstanding.

Dr Fauci tells us that trump a supposed ‘macho man’ would not wear a mask. No, d.j.trump is certainly no macho man, quite a wimp actually but what he is … is belligerent, obstructive, nonsensical, corrosive, cruel, immoral, destructive and crude. trump is a showman and certainly multi-faced and Janus faced with no idea of or respect or recognition of ordinary people, he plays and toys with crowds of people, basking in the attention and knows exactly how to win them and have them swallow whatever he says.

trump is brass-faced but not a ‘macho-man’.

Ask his creditors, ask his many many ex-contractors, all his unpaid or fifty cents in the dollar transactions, ask Atlantic City etc etc.

Dear Dr Fauci I believe you have the situation misunderstood, its my belief d.j.trump is most certainly not a macho man but what is certain is that trump has an obsession with his image in the media. This to my mind is the one and only reason d.j.trump will not wear a mask. Its a tv obsession gone mad and quite logical when one considers his totally ‘me focused’ narcissism.

The other great big fallacy being promulgated is that laptops are the necessary for schoolkids to learn, which to my mind this is nonsense. This idea is being kept in the air because teachers and educationalists and governments cannot think of anything else. The only thing that can get through to most kids is chalk and talk and particularly with todays screen hopping two second attention span a laptop will prove useless. What kids do need are worksheets and workbooks, the requirement to write your answer on paper, to structure your workings and answers.

Its a lockdown, what a great opportunity to acquire some knowledge, to practice sketching, to write a neater hand, to do these things daily to a routine. Or as with Newton, to fill a notebook with activity and also I suggest as with many of these likely topics an older text book of 1960 or even 1900 can often suprisingly offer better explanations and succinct visual presentation that is easily memorised rather than for the latter day explosion of colour in diagrams that often overcomplicate and are a hindrance. An example of this is James Lovelocks ‘Gaia’ …. its overuse of colour for diagrams irritates. Its overkill, a bit like requiring teachers to have a degree in their specialist subject, this is quite ludicrous for teaching arithmetic to twelve year olds!

Memory and the value of memorisation is much undervalued, the more average child and the under achievers being allowed off the hook, to be excused from actually having to memorise anything. The Chinese are very big on the ability to memorise, they have to …. look at their writing system!

Grumble over.
