trump and his tariffs …

He’ll go down in history (if we have much of it left) as the biggest a-hole to wander this Earth in recent memory. His life has been sham and mockery, pushing a ‘front’ with nothing behind it; every insult he hurls is foremost applicable to himself ie fake, crooked.

I’m baffled how so called sane people run to his defence, of those in Office and Government are they THAT scared of losing their position? And of ornery folk that defend this indefensible contraption I had no idea Fox was so able to spoon feed the lowbrow unquestioning nonsense that seems to be so accepted without question. its similar in the UK, the bbc radio news paints a most slanted obscure version of what trump is doing. There is a big market for what people ‘want to hear’, always has been.

His latest invented ‘slight’ is how China has been ‘screwing’ the USA on product and prices; perhaps better to ask a hard working Chinese production worker “Who is getting screwed?” The so-called Intellectual Property infringement is not valid in my opinion, research is worldwide nowadays and the scene is too fast moving to cry hurt. China latterly is more inclined to behave sensibly, the old days of a dimly lit shanty ‘knock-off shop’ are much reduced; but this is typical of trump, to conjure up imagined slights, this is how he avoids paying his suppliers and contractors. That only his crazy viewpoint is the valid one. Its like he’s now got his hands on the the biggest machine with the biggest wrecking ball attached to it and boyoboy he’s so happy.

Its been a theme throughout his life of justifying unjustifiable behaviour by pulling from a hat imagined insults. He moves badly among men, can barely read, does not want any insight or new knowledge, instantly ‘knows’ as if by immediate symbiosis. Wow does trump have mental problems! This we know and is immediately observable, his insistence on inverting reality, of reading situations entirely wrong. This sad and sorry and potentially catastrophic un-needed slamming of tariffs onto China made product is insulting to Americans and the Wests best supplier, they should be endlessly thankful China can supply at such low prices that allow the West to make such generous margins.  Margins and profits that are not as clearly visible as perhaps could be.

Maybe this is happening at the right time, he needs to be ousted ASAP and surely so many people, towns and industries looking set to be mangled by another pointless trump invention will vote accordingly. Theres a long road from selling steak in a box mail order or China made ties to being numero uno in the White House and it seems brag and a slack mouth coupled with media skills pandering to the lowest common denominator have stood him in good stead in his being catapulted from novelty tv and pageants to real power. Note how contrived his ‘rallies’ actually are ie the chosen backdrop of so-called supporters, the stage managed audience. I wouldn’t be suprised he is clueless as to how ‘arranged’ it all is. He rose on a wave of reality tv and just merely continued the same.

The Chinese are tough, after all they built the railroads out to the West Coast USA and probably received very little in return. I feel so sorry for American manufacturers and farmers, they will curse that djt ever got into the White House.

A trillion to the already super-rich and a kick in the guts to everyone else !

Detail I missed – from Samantha Bee…

I have a lot of time for Samantha Bee, likewise Seth Meyers, Bill Maher, Stephen Colbert. They are my ‘go to’ to get an overall picture of what the Orange Clown is up to. Generally mornings are online news outlets and evenings I browse the above contributors.

In my search for some peace from the endless onslaught of nonsense and churn from the trump (note deliberate lower case) so-called ‘administration’, I seem to have missed this thread. In the UK we find it hard to believe something like the NRA  … a) actually exists  … b) is so powerful.

 

 

A stooge for trump ?

Whores come in various shapes and sizes, I mean those folk that will do other than ordinary things for money. To my mind a prime example is the hired in rent-a-crowd that are the backdrop at a trump rally, this has bugged me for a long time, their responses and attention so seemingly out of sync, as if a time lag (or a disinterest) to what is happening. Many look as if they’ve ‘switched off’ and are waiting for the end of this trump masturbatory session to conclude. You can also tell that they are picked ‘for the part’ ie looks, clothing, an ‘actory’ sort of presence. For months now its been screamingly obvious his camera visible audience were stooges, the butt of trumps nonsense.

They are ‘extras’ all part of the trump invention and his tv view of the world.

This weekend we find the man in the plaid shirt was in fact mid-spectacle weeded (vetted) out of the backdrop audience and replaced by a staffer, a paid to smile and nod lackey. Note the man in the plaid shirt knew fine well not to nod or move in disagreement, merely to stick to facial expressions for his own safety.  The people of America are being conned bigtime, but small time Donny the Clown is now on the downcurve, sliding down the slippery slope of his foolery.

Ironic how trumps picked ‘actory’ backdrop audience of extras echoes his career, reality tv (and shoddy at that) … and IS NOT real life. However one can say that picking up media skills has served Donald and Ivanka extremely well, beaming into everyones homes, zero-cost blanket coverage, to hoodwink.

To hear Obama speak is wonderful, it reminds us how immature, undeveloped and ignorant the so-called President trump actually is. Quietness and patience are now put aside, Woodwards book, yet more confirmation of the inabilities, the nuttiness that dwells within the White House is all closing in on trump. Once he is out of Office every trump property and hotel will become deserted, excruciatingly empty. Its funny, his grandad was a hotelier in the Yukon ie gold, horsemeat and whores.

No links for this post, I’m not going to capitalise on something so sordid, low brow and ill-intentioned as a trump ‘rally’ and the sinister removal of the man in the plaid shirt.

On a wider view, donald trumps insistent and continuous refusal to look into any wrongdoing, his refusal to condemn racists and bigots all point to inciting a move toward a caustic, divided and angry society, he has done his best to polarise and incite, to agitate. He is using these people but do they realise this?  But also his so-called ‘leadership’ could take America and the world into very dark and dangerous places not just with Trade. His outright, continuous and flat refusal to ‘allow’ a Free Press is indeed dark and dangerous.  Its horrifying to see and hear his hectoring and blunt uneducated stance; I abhor the sound of his voice. He works to a very low common denominator, the irony considering his love of things gold. He has some very undesirable people whispering in his ear ie Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, John Bolton to name three and a diet of Fox; I shudder to think what dark conversations have taken place behind closed doors. And now we read that his private rooms at the White House are regarded as ‘The devils workshop’.

Why do I detest trump … his fakery, his phoniness, his deception. His all out assault on a Free Press, his disregard for the anxious, for people that need help, the ordinary. His in-the-gutter mentality. His hatred of a Green Approach, EPA madness, denial of the inevitable Climate Change,  his endless behind the scenes wrecking of all good work. Clueless as to International Trade or Relations, to Diplomacy. He’d like to be back in the 1930’s when being wealthy was just sooooo pleasurable and the other 99.9% of the population can go to hell. He cannot move easily among people, cannot assimilate, has difficulty reading and so has developed a compensating personality to fool and deceive. All his insults are in fact most applicable to himself. His performance at Helsinki with two hours alone with Putin, no minutes kept, no witness is indeed straightforwardly treason. He cannot argue and debate or develop ideas or reason etc etc ….. he is hopeless and pointless and a danger.

 

postscript … just found this new story an hour after writing the above, it is typical of the foolery and deceit that breeds from trumps White House and this was literally his first day in Office  …… https://edition.cnn.com/2018/09/07/politics/trump-inauguration-photos/index.html

Heres useful info … http://neven1.typepad.com/

look at the articles linked at right ie …

…. well worth an hour or two of close investigation.

As stated before, an idiot in the White House does NOT help. IPCC predictions and modelling is woefully and increasingly off target incorporating by this time large scale carbon capture that has yet to be invented and totally blind to any release of methane in its three forms. Too many scientists and organisations are treading too carefully, a mindset promulgated from the bizarre stance of the trumps disastrous EPA.

All of what I write demonstrates the total control that nature and simple physics, the forces and interconnected systems of nature plays in this film-thin layer of life on the globe of our planet. Even plants and growing things, algae, diatoms, forests etc are acting in ways contrary to our needs, reducing their vital transpiration ie CO2 to O conversion as trigerred by increasing CO2. Whoops we say “Is that the way its really supposed to happen?”

An example of stupidity, these last couple of weeks seen a highly unusual vehicle for these parts an American Humvee type monstrosity complete with ‘HUM’ personalised reg plate.  I can only conclude … you can guess the words. If nothing else an example of money to burn.

In actual practical conclusion, whatever we try to do in minimising affluent carbon lifestyle is firstly not going to be realised as so many are addicted and welded to their outwardly visible SUV dashing around ‘we are consuming’ lifestyle but also once the methane really starts to release (which it will sooner than ten years) our own efforts ie mankind will be quite ineffective. However, to give up, to not fight is untenable; unthinkable. We need a worldwide one child policy, we need to live in a more sophisticated ie ‘simpler’ manner – not a contradiction in terms. Its quite brainless to buy and consume.  Populations must be prepared for the worst, move or starve, flooding, traditional growing areas no longer viable, extremes. Its all happened before in various forms, its just this time we have too much baggage.

The madness of the trump era …

On bbc radio news just now we hear … that the unfathomable trump has pulled funding to aid Palestinians ie education, health, welfare. Its all in the article, the upside down clownish world of a person that should certainly not be anywhere near Governmental power or policy ….

Climate Change links …

I started this blog half a year ago to bring together pithy to the point links and worthwhile material to try and save time for others. It sort of works as I hoped, visitor numbers are woefully low but if nothing else its been an education for myself and a valuable repository.  I bring you only quality material … ie science / pro contributors. Hint: click these film channels to see more.

 

 

 

Above at 05:20 note that the top ten percent on the planet produce 50% of the CO2 emissions. People knock China for instance (and India) but aren’t we lucky the bicycle was their mode of transport for the ordinary, the masses. And to see an Indian train with hundreds cling to the exterior must surely be max utilisation of motive power.
