Does it register with people the ever present clenched fist of trump, which to my mind is a fascist salute. trump also speaks yesterday the 13th of Jan of ‘our Movement’ …. uh-oh are we not supposed to be within a Democracy? Stinks to high heaven as with anything trump.
Never once have I heard trump refer to or mention ‘Democratic Process’ which of course much as with the American Constitution is just something he is completely blind toward; wilfully intentionally refusing to accept.
Michael Moore tells us that on the day of the storming of the Capitol arriving workers noticed how few security and Capitol Police were present, as if a Saturday. Michael also tells us no police helicopters were overhead, no horse mounted officers, merely a skeleton staff. And as is universally realised if these had been solely black instead of solely white the police presence and reaction would have been totally different. Meanwhile trump fixates on his tv screen and cares not one jot of any democratic process.
Footage is now appearing as to how malicious was the intent of the rioters, of wanting to lynch and hang Mike Pence, some idiots even constructing a gallows we are told. Again, I cannot fact check so this is all secondhand unverified anecdote. Media and tv suffered badly, the UK ITV footage with a reporter at the forefront was harrowing to watch. But surely the FBI was aware of the underlying cellphone traffic? Surveillance should not bother anyone if you are ‘legit’. I am all for ID cards, a onetime email penpal in the UK of high educational attainment was adamant ID cards should never happen, but why fearful! I’d be proud to possess one.
You can easily find on youtube cellphone evidence of the madness of the malicious perpetrators, horrifyingly stupid, a rabble never can accomplish anything, they should have known this from the start and most certainly know it now. Collective IQ the lowest imaginable, much like their leader. Strange also the fetish for flags, who supplied those? I think they were ‘tooled up’ by some vested interest. I also think the rabble did not seem present at the footage on trumps bizzare pre-insurrection stage performance, maybe intentionally keeping off camera. There has to be other people pulling strings, lets hope the authorities know more than they are giving away.
But again, trump using the term ‘movement’ sounds amiss, suspicious indeed.
Sitting here listening to the latest trump ‘speech’ we see a very dangerous individual, Janus double-talk, unhinged, evil; reading a script written for him but immediately he will be wishing to say the opposite.
postscript a few minutes ago yet again bbc r4 news this morning at 0745 tells us how trump will not be abandoned by the Republican Party … uh! … yes he will be abandoned, it is utterly essential for the sake of Democracy, trump right now being as welcome as a turd in a swimming pool to be crude and blunt about it.
… you have accomplished more than German bombers and Russian dirty tricks could ever achieve, you have totally screwed the UK !
The fool known as Johnson two days ago up in Blyth was obviously quaking, no European leaders had returned his calls and he knows fine well we are snookered, his voice and manner told us all we needed to know. His ranking as a Prime Minister I’m sure will lie below Chamberlain.
Bluster, waffle, huff puff and charade … and where is Dominic Cummings (the arch “We should leave” architect?) oh yes, long lost and out of sight! Likewise quisling Farage and incredulous ‘trump supporter’ … when theres work to be done, well out of harms way.
Just as in America we were conned by a few simple slogans and the promise of ‘better things’ !
The news informs Honda in Swindon has stopped production and we can guess Nissan Sunderland will cease operations too. Well done Mr Johnson!
As usual fisheries will be sacrificed, it always is (PM Heath threw our fisheries protection to the wind to appease the Europeans) anyway to say theres not much of fish stocks is probably accurate.
Sad times, we had so much to live for but now the countless misery weighs heavy.
n.b. look for the second embedded vid where we get trump himself reeling off all his hard work and effort, his achievements … (hold on wheres the sick-bag) … informing us that what donald has done far exceeds anything anyone else could possibly have achieved. Pure absolute tv spin; trump doesn’t have qualified advisors, he has scriptwriters.
I wonder how he fitted in all this ‘hard work and effort’ in between the golf, all the ego-boosting and often unnecessary rallies and the binge watching of tv? Methinks the gold plated turd is indeed a conman, an administration perpetually upon a whim, upon undue influence and upon most certainly a total lack of depth, knowledge or ability … all carried on the shoulders and wit of an ace b/s’er. Its common knowledge all he carries in his head is the last conversation he had. There are darker forces of course, vested interest; a cohort, a dark web so to speak of already over-wealthy individuals greedy for more, witness Mnuchin silent at the rear making sure trump does his bidding. My Mao analogy (prev post) does indeed hold water, witness how he has the general populace fighting among themselves, absolutely perfect for thos muscling in on the rule of America.
To quote Dr MLK “Pharoah knew how to keep the slaves down, as long as they were fighting among themselves they’ll never get anywhere”.
trump indeed is clever, in a malevolent mischievous way, mischief in centuries past carrying far greater danger than it does now.
Realise too both donald and the trump kids are well tutored and practiced in how to handle a microphone, how to act in front of cameras. This is fundamentally all that their rise and tenure has been based upon, other qualifications are zero, rock bottom, nothing … zilch, other than being useful fools in promoting the interests of corporations and big money. So why is it, half of America still remains hoodwinked by these showmen? Are people so unthinking that to hear the term ‘great again’ is sufficient to warrant their voting mark?
To term this as nonsense is too light a word, deliberate chaos and evil is more appropriate, especially in these times (end-times?) of irreversible catastrophic climate change (ie impending arctic methane, altered weather systems, the carbon catastrophe).
As is often the case little bits of chemtrail all day, some also ninety degree ‘across the sky’ chemtrails, a gradual ramp back up to pre-covid activity. However late afternoon managed to catch view of the western sky and horizon and a plethora of obvious chemtrail activity as seen here from coastal Northumberland, ie north east of England. Unfortunately camera not to hand but also the chemtrail sky had developed the ‘dirty grey’ of what I term ‘reaction clouds’ ie whispy un-natural dark grey striated lower altitude obscuration of the chemtrail nonsense which was being deposited at higher altitude. In the now obvious chemtrail sky there was even the rare phenomena of several chemtrail depositions in parallel, I a assume simultaneous spraying of chemtrail by separate aircraft but i admit not present to witness the actual aircraft actaually flying.
The chemtrails visible being obvious, distasteful and needing to be answered, to be acknowledged.
Lets look at flight radar 24 to see if it has retained image of htis occurring, but be warned as with NASA Worldview some images and information is quickly shed ie erased.
Result of chemtrail investigation…. with flightradar24 on playback all i can see are Ryanair and Ezyjet short haul flights and certainly not the four aircraft i suspect in parallel; something which also i witnessed earlier that day.
On NASA Worldview the results can be severely limited merely what i suppose is a mid morning snapshot. However here is a twenty minute session at finding chemtrail over the last couple of weeks….
If such a thing exists, trump surely has to be the figurehead of such a so-called ‘Deep State’, trumps Janus style pointing finger always points directly to himself. Hence the terms fake, swamp, sleepy, crooked, deep state are all manifest primarily essentially in trump, with his vested interest unaccountable backers, cohorts and sycophants. Most certainly trump lies comfortably with Deep State, its been apparent from day one, ‘Who put him up there’ and ‘Who pulls his strings?’
Remember this is a rich kid , hardly able to read, no respect for anything, constantly failing, of near zero academic ability and tutored by Roy Cohn. Grandaddys bags of gold from the Yukon fostered all this, whores and hotels. Brag and swagger are the pasteboard mask.
It baffles me how anyone either believes his crooked disjointed nonsense or can present themselves in public endorsing his destructive incompetent chaotic tenure. trump is the epitome of callous disregard. Witness Kayleigh McEnany. They seem to want to be along for the ride, the aftertaste will indeed be bitter.
Very clever that trump can fool with his breezy low vocab delivery, a crude untalented reality-show ‘actor’ tailor-made for vested interest to project its values and work their abominal desires, ie witness EPA dismantling, scientists frightened to speak out, protection of environmental issues all gone, sadly Dr Anthony Fauci a far too timid individual. Witness also the negation of womans choice, disregard and destruction of human and civil rights, of black equality. Just as with the tone of his detestable inauguration speech trump has indeed followed through, in a sense kept his promises, his ‘Deep State’ backers wanting us back to the 1930’s … a 1930’s that also includes vast shifts on the political map; the rise of overpowering Fascism, the criminalisation of peaceful democratic protest and the horrors of war.
Its all about lies, of fooling people, bluster and brag, the tv soundbite… trump is a conman quite gifted and with a lifetimes experience of this.
But trump is cleverer than he seems, can assimilate a nuanced plan, a nuanced trajectory and as heard a few weeks ago may not leave the White House when voting should result in the end of his so-called Presidency. Quoting ‘I don’t like losing’ …. this beggars belief … this is a Democracy not a tv show!
trumps realisation to dominate the news cycle is crude but effective.
trump is outlawing any peaceful civil protest, witness the recent Bible waving photo-op on a street of peaceful protestors cleared with tear gas.
trump enjoys his ‘militia’ … in other words conventional fascist thugs.
This whole scenario could not have been better planned or nuanced in its fine graded onslaught against common sense, decency and democracy. Somewhere, maybe in Jared or Ivankas office theres a huge flowchart on the wall planning out all these steps away from Democracy, the insults, the sleights all finely graded.
Luckily trump throws up sufficient gaffes for us to get an idea, to map his views and mindset. He couldn’t care less about all the coloured lives lost with covid, of police bigotry, of incoming asylum seekers that will most likely work hard, or of overseas struggle such as Sudan, Palestine and Yemen. Its a trump trait to cut aid. Cruelty and polarisation are a trump trait.
For example, mail and air parcels going into the US have hiked 50% in one single price rise a couple of months ago, and are abysmally slow, this is not covid, it is trump Protectionism.
Here in the UK the ‘bent’ and to my mind deliberate intention TO NOT criticise trump does indeed beggar belief. BBC r4 news certainly on the daytime news cycle is peculiarly pro-trump, seeming not to want to disturb or upset His royal ‘Highness’ !
The Daily Mail so-called newspaper is a tawdry useless thing, more akin to a gossip sheet with its main occupation seeming to be girls in bikinis. And this morning online we read in the Daily Telegraph the following absolute nonsense ….
Surely ‘flaws’ are not the correct interpretation of outright trump incompetance, inability and callous disregard, its more ‘total outlook and destruction of Democracy’, his very nature and mission is the essence of chaos and hence can be defined as evil. Its a bit like saying herr hitler wasn’t very nice at times.
As an example of janus-style finger pointing that most certainly describes trump himself and his un-admitted ‘deep state’ style puppet masters, they do indeed admit to climate change when one thinks about it, not outwardly but most certainly in their intentions to militarisation, to bullying tactics, to abandoning any assistance for non-trump States; setting up the system for when climate change starts to bite to ignore and quash mass migration, to grab food resources therefore exacerbating food shortages and they will have the brute force, the military and quasi military muscle to do whatever they want. Witness the disregard to comprehensive health care, the erosion of hard won Civil Rights, in the disregard of equitable and cordial International Relations; when the scramble for food and resources takes hold already trump-style USA will have ‘removed the gloves’, with trump and his Deep State backers it will be a coarse brutal world.
Yes Biden is old, but Kamala Harris would be first class in the role of President. Realise the dismantling of hard won rights and legislation that is being destroyed quietly behind the scenes by trump and his nasty hangers-on. Ever wonder why someone so career high-flying as Mnuchin basically just stands there silent …. its trumps s minder, just as with Pence, to ensure trump keeps up the facade, to reinforce the message.
technical problems re layout.
I’m using space fillers
to make some space on this layout…
Postscript, re-reading and editing the above a few days later I can’t believe we are having to write such things as this post, but write and witness we must certainly perform and exercise our critical faculties.
trump relies on his critics, the general population and any guardian of Democracy as being unable to forsee his next crazy move, today 24th September after a days absence from googling ‘trump latest’ say twice a day the latest trump horrors are most alarming, trump stating outright he will not regard or trust any democratic election process at election time. trump has hinted at this previously but never in such stark terms as yesterdays Press Briefing. As with all Fascists he is increasingly brazen and inclined to exercise brute force. I notice also the change in his face, something is happening we might not so far realise how drastic. These are genuinely frightening and dangerous times. Luckily theres a thing called the Constitution and I hope the Military will halt the march into outright Fascism.
Interesting and alarming embed on this Guardian article below how sick trump actually is ….
trump in any other position would v soon be bypassed, be discarded, couldn’t occupy the role of janitor ( my apologies to all hardworking janitorial operatives) and note I deny trump upper case.
As I’ve said for years the insults that trump throws around are most pertinent to himself (the accusatory finger plumb 180 deg in the wrong direction) trump himself most definitely being low energy, fake, swamp, lies.
trump is a gold plated example of too much wealth going badly wrong, spoilt from minute one; my own father would have used the term ‘spoilt’ and increasingly I can see that this can indeed engender a lazy, misguided inept and talentless individual. I’ve seen other examples of this lately but thats my own private affair but certainly has me more than usual focused on the term ‘spoilt’. A character spoilt, a development spoilt, no effort engendered, totally lazy both mentally and physically. What a curse money can be and in trumps case a curse on America.
trumps grandfather fed off gold prospectors and now trump feeds off America.
trump apparently has little idea if any of the meaning of words, of their potential weight, potential to do good or bad, the potential constructive purpose of dialogue, their value. He loves the tv screen, witness Netanyahu using a doctored vid to turn trump against the Palestinians and cut aid ( a signature move this, cut aid to the already struggling, hell …. he’s even massively cut aid to Americans). His more recent admissions of binge watching Fox clearly demonstrate trump susceptibility to anything on a screen and as reported yesterday in interview takes it all in like a sponge, spoilt boy Donny just does just not ‘see’ is unable to exercise any critical thought, other than bigotry and preconclusions. He stakes his position in the dirt, draws a circle with his foot and claims this is where I stand. And remember this is the nut with the nuclear codes.
Notice how both trump and Regan were/are actors, to quote Noam Chomsky “Were handed a script and read from it” though I realise here I’m loose with the facts, trump stumbles with reading, again as my Dad would have said “Never learnt his alphabet”.
This morning revealed light rain overnight but looking at Balotta psuedodictamus was shocking, so many near to death bees utterly sodden, clinging on in their last hours. They’ll never dry out I fear, but as I write this late morning there is some sunshine coming through. I have a very interesting garden, a clever garden tailored to help nature, the large shrub white Hebe gives way to lots of tall Campanula to the Balotta; theres mostly always something for them.
I make sure too there small structures, nooks and crannies that will help nature, I always leave leaf fall on the soil surface and I’m thinking i need to construct another compost heap (v definitely open sided) for maybe a mouse or wren to nest in, its happened several times before.
Big question … WHY ARE THESE BEES (say a dozen) out in the wet, sodden, hardly able to move? Why didn’t they sek shelter, retun to their home or at least shelter amomg the confined twisted lower stems of the plant? again, is this bee dementia. I need to get in contact with experts, with apiarists.
Bees are clever but not so clever for these ones. Is this the dreaded chemtrail aluminium? These last couple of weeks chemtrails and an obviously aluminized sky are back with us. its such a shame chemtrail awareness is so ridiculed, the evidence is there but most ‘ornery folk with near zero observational experience think they know better.
Luckily these last few nights there were moths to be seen, but this summer NO WASPS, my plum tree has produced lots this year and the last quarter century would have meant a vital destination for wasps, summer 2020 not a single wasp to be seen. Again, this troubles me.
Its more difficult to get at search results for these topics ie bee decline and for wasp decline, windows 10 is horrible, XP was so much more empathetic and revealing of other than the usual half dozen sites currently revealed.
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.
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.
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’.
Its generally agreed the Governments handling of foot and mouth was utterly and deeply flawed, a total disaster with not much notice being taken of all the experience gained from the 1969 foot and mouth epidemic and the recommendations from the then Duke of Northumberland (ie major landowner and farmer) … Prof Neil Ferguson was involved in the 2001 foot and mouth epidemic disaster and now he is or was involved on the cv-19 problem.
Methinks he is the wrong person for such activities.
