Scandals, incompetence, lack of vision.

It baffles me how short sighted the bods at the top really are, I mean the UK Government. BBC r4 radio news this morning again carries mention that highly qualified ultra-competent laboratories in Uni, research, contract testing etc are all available to ramp up cv-19 testing yet multiple contacts and phone calls from Professors and Doctors in their own field produce nothing in return from the NHS or the UK Government;  we are so woefully challenged as how this virus is being handled. I think when we view retrospectively the double scandal not using the myriad of labs available outside of the NHS (which I think possibly can often be in advance of the NHS) and the also incredulous scandal of NOT examining and collating deaths in care homes or at home to achieve more accurate data of lives claimed by the virus. Aiming to deliver a competent speech as say from the Head Boy is NOT the same as the actual hard reality of PPE in the hands of those that need it. Maybe we need a Lord Beaverbrook? The only good thing you can say is that our only resort, social distancing was pushed forward as utterly essential. But has anyone ever yet seen trump or the creepily quiet and distanced Fauci wearing simple handgloves? … scandalous!

This terrible time highlights the lag from daily pronouncement to actual on the ground delivery, such as PPE which contrary to podium pronouncements is not to hand for those at the sharp end. And I wonder if that recent Russian and Chinese PPE was delivered to those that needed it or in fact hoarded by Jared?

All care workers and those in contact with cv-19 patients need to be tested every couple of days, these are ‘hot-beds’ of infection no matter how hard the staff follow as many precautions as possible, that’s of course if they have anything near the PPE ther really need, I mean full face gear, forced ventilation head protection (ever heard anyone mention this?). Wow, as I type this we hear someone from the USA (Prof Paul Rohner sorry I missed the name bbc r4 08:46) saying exactly this idea ie to harness the Universities, to intensively test the hot beds of infection. My thoughts exactly. I also think all in healthcare, care homes etc need their own special distancing, their own family members, these people need to be treat and manouvered as the potential super-spreaders these really are … to NOT test say daily is madness.

News from across the pond and as usual presented uncritically and even as ‘normal’ of the continuing, worsening trump disaster as is typical bbc r4 news stance. At 10pm ‘The world Tonight’ at least has some ‘teeth’ and offers a clearer view, a valuable radio programme. In the old Soviet era photographs people were airbrushed out of the picture to alter history, trump does it by merely denying his previous words and actions. I had thought trump was basically a puppet but these last few days I’m more inclined to think he actually does come up with all this crap mostly from himself. At least his unpredictability is predictable, forever casting himself with hindsight as the ‘stable genius’ and reworking his message at whatever shallow whim drives him that day. We can assume now that those around him really are the dregs, Mnuchin, Miller, Kushner etc and with the White House Eunuch Pence in attendance. Even with Anthony Fauci he really does seems to have trawled for and ineffectual yes-man. These really are sick white folk. Winess jareds outburst a few days ago when questioned as to the Governments own massive stocks of PPE when America struggles …. “They are for us” …. wow yet again a DC comic adventure.

For trump to announce withdrawl of funding to the World Health Organisation is cruel indeed, hell-bent (an apt term if ever) at Trumpian disruption and bile. Witness Yemen, tragic. Its again the trump style, max disruption, max cruelty; its got trump written all over it. To be so stingy and pretend ‘he has a view on anything’ (quite laughable were it not so cruel) is all reality show smoke and mirrors, which is all trump knows apart from conman crow-barring of perceived enemies and debtors; he came from the Roy Cohn School of Charm and Grace.  Thinking about it, this is when Sean Hannity and Fox could do the nation a service and turn this monstrous Clown to a more sensible approach, come on Sean n Co …. help the Free World!

trump incompetence …

We normally put up with donald j trump, the ultra part-timer and the utter incompetent ‘Clown in the White House’, trump is the fly in the ointment; we allow him to hiss, accuse and blether his way through soundbites and for yet another day to project outwards his tissue thin façade of so-called ‘competence’. But now with cv-19 its time to man-up so to speak and realise trump is now responsible for many innocent lives being lost which most certainly upsettingly compounds his already relentless attempts to wreck, to induce fear and anxiety.

Realise, its not what trump says that matters, its what he does (or wrecks). trump knows most near all of his face to face media encounters are mere ‘blether-fests’.

This article helps assemble and gain an overall view of the disaster zone called donald j trump …

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

Why is it ….

… the funny little fella Anthony Fauci has every time to be running his hands all over the presidential lectern. Its as if he’s in love with it and cannot get his hands on it enough! I’m glad I don’t have to touch it after he’s been around; but hey …. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/06/hydroxychloroquine-trump-coronavirus-drug

Here he is Dr Anthony Fauci …. a complete and utter buerk. Maybe I need to go tell him “Keep yr hands to yourself” ! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Fauci

Regardless of whether he has just washed his hands (I’m sceptical) … he should not be touching anything. Funny how certain people get to the top!

A case in point is d j trump, how did he get to the top! The Guardian quotes trump as pronouncing he has no time or truck with I quote ” But we don’t have time to go and say, ‘Gee, let’s take a couple of years and test it out, and let’s go and test with the test tubes and the laboratories.’”

‘…the test tubes and the laboratories’.

No-one has seen trumps educational record or tax record and one cannot help but wonder of whatever was presented would be trumped up, to be phoney, fake, fake as in most of what trump is associated with. trump was and is ineducable, incapable of learning very much. Dictators were often ignorant, trump is merely just another; but how sad he influences and controls to such an extent, we now read that trump has forbidden Fauci from saying anything. trumps over-bearing ignorance surely should never be tolerated. Every misdemeanour, possibly many each day further strengthen this clown.

 

Trump is a clown, an exceedingly dangerous and disruptive clown.
This is the swamp indeed ie Master Faker trump… can barely read, despises the printed word other than when it carries his own name, denies experts or science or environmental prudence, is blind to climate change.

 

 

 

 

 

When do the last dregs of America get it?

Surely there can not be a single individual remaining in the US of A that would vote for trump.

?

His callous indifference, surreal return to ‘snake oil salesman’, must surely brand the ‘Retard in Charge’ as the most unsupportable so called ‘leader’ anywhere anytime. Well okay, maybe Nero was a bit of an indifferent twat and maybe some Biblical / Egyptian types were a low point; Hitler, Mao … yes all disregarded the ordinary folk.

trump drags down the world, dumbs down, clogs up and hinders the work of self-effacing people of integrity. HOW MUCH PATIENCE must the USA and the world extend to this clown, this buffoon, this snake-oil salesman, wanna-reality star, conman ….

trumps ‘invented wisdom’ knows no bounds.

Its quite nasty up there at the WH, look at Jared, his dad done for voting fraud so daddy in law enumerates him as numero-uno adviser! Yes indeed if crooked and low brow is your favoured stance.

With the cv-19 we do indeed see the folly of allowing trump to lodge at 1600 Pennsylvania.

Americas downfall will be its health system.

Has anyone thought about the fact that the American ‘having to pay’ health system, trumps mash-up of anything scientific or expert and the dreaded ICE persual of anyone of colour ie Mexican or Moslem will mean vast millions of poor and disadvantaged will be rendered as unclean, as lepers overnight?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019–20_coronavirus_outbreak

In fact anyone below a ‘very good income’ will be I would imagine at a greater risk of not being intercepted, of being to use that horrible term a ‘super-spreader’. Or perhaps more accurately it means the poor will not be tested or effectively processed at the earlier stages of cov19; which of course is exactly the time when intervention is most useful. Therefore we can say that Americas so-called ‘health system’ is an utter shambles, is in fact the ‘worst case’ situation. This also highlights how trumps assault onto the poorer areas of society, the undocumented etc are feared to come forward. One could say that for some trump takes us back to the Stone Age; very fitting as trump denies science and expertise.

Thank goodness here in the UK we have the NHS. Old fashioned washing of hands is realised to be so important, something I always do readily anyway perhaps to a bit of a mild obsession few others seemed so inclined until now.

From what I can see the Chinese look to have handled this outbreak very well; they have the clout to lock down as required, yet the initial stages and the poor doctor that died are shameful. However the strength of the CCP has been to their advantage.

Therefore as much the USA with mobster and perennial liar / fantasist trump at the helm wishes to be seen as slick, quick and on the ball once we are through this coronavirus problem the USA I fear will have seemed so backward no matter how much trump tries to whitewash, as Stone Age compared to China.

Funny huh …  how in so few short years trump has taken America back to a third rate nation.

Why are we so jumbled?

Why is bigotry and blindness, pretend knowledge that can hardly amount to a sentence or two allowed such free-rein dominance and real ‘grown-up’ dialogue so despised?

Has the ‘little screen’ so jumbled peoples minds that knowledge and anything other than a few dozen words is beyond most people? Or perhaps more accurately shoddy tenth-rate no, zero-rate leadership glove puppet trump in the White House and space boy Pence who also doesn’t ‘believe’ in science are twitching and pronouncing on things they have utterly no idea about. Its all about the sound bite my dears, to dominate the news cyle excluding fair arguament and grown-up open minded and informed dialogue.

How can things have got this bad?

Looks like Lewis Carrol wrote the script.

Witness endless destruction of carefully built EPA safeguards and protections, a trillion handed back to the already super-rich, hatred and bigotry fuelled and stoked to a desire to be back in the 1930’s, the modest, the Mexican, the Moslem all shoved to the back of the queue, families crow-barred apart and deported. Remember, the 1930’s to people like trump would have meant ‘business opportunities’ as we imagine them cruising in their chauffer driven limos. trump finds war quite appealing, anyone who has ever been in it or suffered its effects will be screaming that war should not ever happen again. trump is deaf to this.

Once trump mis-management, inertia and sheer ignorance bite home I fear the USA will be harder hit than anyone in the coming recession.

Never trust anyone with a funny haircut, nor parades barrel chested, magesterially and with pomp with silly over-applied tv makeup for the next op ….. nor revels so obscenely in his ‘me-focused’ rallies.  Remind you of anyone?

Lines in the sky mid-Feb 2020.

These lines do not disappear quickly as should conventional aircraft condensation trail but in fact increase as the minutes pass and half an hour later can result in a man-made haze ….. ask any Californian or resident of the Baltic Sea area, Portugal, Spain, Italy, the Black Sea etc.

Due to these lines in the sky retired Fisheries Biologist Francis Mangels and many others link this to increased and I state here alarming levels of free-borne aluminium ie present as a toxic elemnt, not bonded as it should ordinarily be in nature. Witness seabird die off, lack of life in water ie from diatoms to caddis and higher.

Note trump has the USA and particularly the EPA trussed up, everyone fearful, scientific ethics and knowledge banished for fear of retribution ie sackings, budgets withdrawn etc. trump too is now disassembling the American Intelligence community, he also has done the same by installing stooges to do his bidding, lets hope Mr Barr can reclaim his self respect and fight this evil. Fingers crossed Mitt Romney can fight this avalanche of disaster known as trump. As at mid-Feb 2020 we now have the pardoning of white-collar crooks and Stone laughing all the way to the Bank.

Recall trump endlessly repeating he was going to ‘drain the swamp’? trump will do anything to catch votes, anything to feed his absurd extreme money obsessed and unreal, unethical, immoral outlook. Sitting there with his Big-Boy Marker he scans the newspapers for mention of his name, hardly able to read, most certainly not intending to read (witness his absurd and embarrassing teleprompter wrangles) and certainly never picking up anything new from the printed word. Its not even his own fingers that push out the tweets. The machinery of nature to use a Paul Erlich book title is now set in revolution to dissolve ice-caps, unfreeze the much needed permafrost and release both terrestrial and subsea methane, merely a slight sea level rise will unhinge the multiple Antarctic ice shelf and now weather systems are working against the tiny little humans that scurry around, most certainly nature laughs last. Meanwhile clown trump inhabits the White House …

Below I include lucky glimpses of chemtrail here in NE England these last few days. Its near impossible at this stage of the climate game to impress upon anyone that these things are undesirable and mock a so-called free society, only time will prove me right.  In my opinion it is free-borne nano-particle aluminium as the reason California wildfires burned the way they did. There must be a reason for chemtrail but I cannot work it out, I am wary of that dreaded term ‘conspiracy theory’ thrown around, bandied with little thought behind it; which is in fact something we are not very good at these days ie ‘thinking’ … no time, no rest from little screens and endless un-needed information. The bright and clever will still gain academic excellence but for the rest of us, the ordinary, I fear the ordinary person knows less now than for many generations previously, likewise this two-edged so-called wonderful thing the web far too easily feeds prejudice and polarises thought, the web hardly seems to nurture tolerance and compassion particularly among the less advantaged that are not used to evolving a balanced consideration, a discussion. I’ve always thought that in schools rhetoric, the art of talking and discussion needs to be more fully embraced.

 

 

 

 

I also use NASA Worldview (see prev posts) which only gives me a hint say a third max of chemtrail activity as observed overheard here in NE England, but at least allows me to look at Spain, Bay of Biscay, Balearics, Italy, Baltic Sea, North Sea, English Channel etc that receive a lot of chemtrail.

 

I applaud Mitt Romney.

At least someone has courage and decency; its frightening to see so many old white men hang onto the coat-tails of trump, himself a mere puppet for vested interest. How can anyone tolerate the absurdity and total unsuitability for Office?  Nancy is my hero, best thing she could do in tearing up that script.

In these vile days of trump two and two are most certainly three, or five but anything but four.

trumps obsession is to be on the edge of the news curve, he’ll do anything to be the headlines; lying and false claims are nothing to him, chaff to the wind each day. These times of change seem to be bringing out the worst in people that should know better.

trump used to talk about the swamp, merely another hook to catch voters, but in his post acquittal speech he himself goes lower than anyone could imagine, a surreal DC comic version of what an unhinged President would promulgate whilst all around him lay disarray and destruction.

The Impeachment Trial was a farce. Those that spoke the truth or wanted to get at the truth were effectively silenced, a couple of days later Alexander Vindman (a Ukraine expert) fired and escorted off the premises, Gordon Sondland also fired. As we know, trump does not like experts or anyone that is impelled to seek the truth. From the wiki below we can also see that Vindmans twin brother has also been fired at the same time,

quote:

His identical twin brother, Yevgeny S. Vindman, is an Army lieutenant colonel and JAG Officer who was assigned as an attorney on the National Security Council staff handling ethics issues, until he was dismissed from that post on February 7, 2020, the same time as Alexander was removed from his NSC post.[3][27][25]

As a comic aside from this Impeachment charade I can’t help but recall Judge Nutmeg of Reeves and Mortimer  “What are the charges …. trumped up” !

Every day with trump is a backward step.

Note on the second link how v.p. pence is so impossible to pin down, to get him to admit the harm the trump ‘administration’ administers every single day.  Its so sad to see how George Orwells predictions were so accurate.

Why is it the likes of pence and trump are insistently deaf to truth and common sense?

At 0850 GMT this morning on bbc r4 we heard of trumps ‘good standing in the world’ and how many Americans in fact admire his stance on Foreign Policy, International Relations and Diplomacy!! This I found staggering; I can assume the interviewer was ridiculing the interviewee Carol Leonnig, but maybe the interviewer was convolutedly having to promote a weird r4 morning news stance, perhaps pandering to the directives from above. I find that at 10pm with ‘The World Tonight’ the news is better relayed.

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/a-very-stable-genius-by-philip-rucker-and-carol-leonnig-review-uncouth-unhinged-but-holding-on-pxsq99r9s

‘eh …. quoted as ‘a success, a master in some ways’ …. what the heck do I seem to be missing here???  More like a master of nastiness and of ridiculing all the enlightenment and advances hard won in many cases that safeguard the ordinary people and the environment and the natural world of America.

trump has created NOTHING BUT DISCORD, FEAR AND MISTRUST.

Its strange how the interview twisted in its couple of minutes duration, as if form of crazy Moebius strip, Carol Leonnig at first stating trump has v little knowledge of anything in other words profoundly ignorant and no inclination to learn, in fact unable to learn and his geography / knowledge of the world map to be very poor indeed. And then bolted on to the end of the interview was the put to bed nonsense of ‘trumps (good) standing in the world’. Its a bad state of affairs when garbage of this sort comes out of my radio. Again, what am I missing, it wasn’t Friday 13th or April 1. But what I do know is that big business has their hand up trump as if a childs glove puppet; trump has no need to think or form policy or be a leader in the real sense, vested interests based on greed and an outdated economic model does the thinking for him.

Obtaining better web results …

… is mostly better when I switch back to the old stack ie firefox and XP O/S. Immediately I can get at the info I’m looking for, the newer windows 10 is like a straightjacket re results and also the O/S interface is abysmal.

Immediately I find a website that is new to me, firstly melting permafrost and secondly a Jan 15 2020 article of yet again seabird die-off. My own hobby horse and fascination has been algae and plankton and my concern with the hardly barely reported loss of diatoms, the irony being 70% of the worlds oil and gas is derived from ancient deposits accrued from diatoms. And oh yes … every fifth breath we take we owe to the oxygenating properties of diatoms.

I’m also still vexed that trump and his crooked hangers-on waste the news cycle and the time of adults when we have better things to be attending to ie climate change.
