trumps thinking …

… bit of a contradiction but in private he most certainly can manouvre, side-step, duck and weave. This article sheds light on trumps way of doing things …

Portrait of the President as a Gangster

Most certainly not suited to Public Office in any shape or form.  His qualification of ‘The Art of the Deal’ as we now can see multiple times is ghost-written bluff, the twice fiasco with North Korea I hope and should be, never repeated. He is no Statesman whatsoever (an essential for any leader) and aligns with all the questionable regimes of the world. He was Kim jong Uns best publicity ever, his gateway to world media.

trump will now gloat on this neutered Mueller Report for years to come, shame upon William Barr for stooping so low, it will displace trumps previous obsession with crowd size. An obsession is a handy thing to a certain type of person, it displaces ‘having to think’ and can look as if one is talking / doing something when in fact its just so much recycled hot air. blah blah blah for the umpteenth time, the umpteenth month. But never mind, we all can see it coming, the whirring helicopter engine, the charade of urgency and busy-ness, drawing close his favourite and aligned media types.

What will be most telling in the weeks and months to come is how trump will attempt to goad and humiliate the Free Press. We will see him descend to levels of vitriol so far not displayed. This forthcoming behaviour will show us all what we need to know. The more he thrashes around the further down into the stinking barrel of filth he will descend. My analogy of trump with Mao I think quite accurate. You can show a picture of Mao to a twenty year old and some don’t even know who that is.

 

trump and his multi-pronged attack on decency and truth ..... a misguided and dangerous fool, the ultimnate con-man.
trump and his multi-pronged attack on decency and truth …..

 

One thing is for sure, trump will never read it. Other than looking for his name on the first page bigboy marker in hand as far as trump is concerned its just so much waste-paper.

trump: I’m frightened now.

The dreadful nastiness of donald j trump now needs to be reined in. His intent is clear and he represents a regressive mindset far worse than anything visualised as ‘the swamp’. trumps downward spiral needs to now be reined in, for decency to be pressed upon him and his unsuitability for high office made clear. However today we read trump and his tweets are getting most unpleasant, sinking to lower depths of ignorance…

Ilhan Omar, isn’t she lovely, its in her face! Likewise with AOC, these are valuable and much needed people.

Some of the nicest people I’ve ever met are Moslem and Pakistani. To berate such people is silly trending toward sick. Offenders such as trump and I guess Stephen Miller and others in the creaking decrepit wagon called the White House have most evidently inadequete and shrivelled cold hearts, their paucity of human compassion is deplorable. It also indicates they seem to have read so little, never sampled the world at large as from the printed page; their minds and hearts have never got out of first gear. As with all con artists, fantasists and bluff merchants anything other than a ten second bar-room soundbite is beyond them. Nothing wrong with such brevity in its self among ordinary folk but not fit for a President.

We know for instance trumps only reading of a serious newspaper is to work across the page with his bigboy marker to see how many times his name appears, theres no comprehension, no insight, no learning. The racists such as we see attaching themselves to the trump bunker and to trump himself are narrow and cold, certainly lacking in completeness as civilised humans.  Perhaps their own guilt and shame fuels at lashing out at others they perceive as different, after all trump has quite happily mocked the handicapped. With climate change ahead we haven’t time for this nonsense. trump is immature, always was and is ignorant, always was.

Little better than a snot-nosed playground bully from the backward class.

I see a great similarity with Mao and trump, both were determined to establish chaos and set people against each other. And Mao of course just like trump in his ignorance could never accept the notion he had made a mistake, or did not understand practical reality, both are highly impractical. Likewise, Mao and trump will so quickly turn against a previously devoted member of staff. The similarities of Mao and trump are quite uncanny.

Its quite accurate to compare Mao and trump as alike …

  • insulated from reality.
  • impractical in the extreme, Mao was extraordinarilly impractical.
  • endlessly creating chaos, delighting in chaos.
  • turning upside down established practices and customs.
  • secretive, above the common masses as if breathing rarified air.
  • hidden schemes and projects.
  • brazen, capable of violence, no compassion, much like trumps beloved sharks.
  • thinking only of themselves.
  • knowing how to manipulate/control media, to create a cult, to create fear.
  • can do no wrong.
  • will easily drop and destroy anyone that served them.
  • deliberately sets person against person.
  • its trump / Mao they serve, not the nation.
  • experts are ignored.
  • sycophants promote absurd non-truths and their masters ignorance zealously.
  • Russias influence on 1950’s and 1960’s China has never been fully revealed… just as with trump!

The Great Entanglement … oops the web.

Increasingly i think the web is in fact the Entanglement … The Great Entanglement, to be spoken of in future generations such as the Enlightenment, a  signal of change but this time its for the worse.  We are heading toward a situation that we read predictions indicate a major part of world power generation will be consumed with online data surveillance / storage and whacko ‘get rich schemes’ as bitcoin.

We do something, some small activity and that alone warrants a followup posting and texting and endless selfies, I’m slightly guilty re this blogging but its mostly me writing to myself, collecting useful material and pushing forward, developing my ideas.

We are losing the point of what life is about, endless consumerism, mindless ‘enjoying’ viewing, sampling and nothing beyond; browsing the immediate. A major ‘de-tech’ would do us all good. Admittedly i realise business demands connectivity, thank God  I can choose my own level, I have the benefit of having practical work to perform in a very old fashioned manner,that cannot easily be displaced or altered.

Yesterdays radio news tells us Uber being floated has never made a profit and possibly will never generate a profit. Be mindful its costs are being covered and salaries, fees, fixed and variable costs being met; but all the same asking punters to put money in to something that on the face of it generates no return on capital is again just plain whacko! When things such as this are happening its time to eliminate exposure to stock market fluctuations. I likewise dread the American crash once trumps shenaigans and inability with Economic Management comes home to roost. That little old thing called debt, a self proclaimed ‘King of Debt’ should NOT be President and his denigration and belittling of overseas trading partners is crass beyond belief, but hey … its djt !

trump and his Fascism …

NAST NASTY donald j trump who revels in cruelty, a toxic brew of ignorance and callous disregard. Theres lots of dirty over-moneyed numskulls behind him, I shudder to think what conversations occur behind closed doors. And yet the likes of Pence a ‘so-called’ Christian is of such low morals he tags along for the ride, his only chance to feel power on his lips. A pun for Pence … very definitely small change.

I just found this over on Daily Intelligencer  …http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/04/trump-kirstjen-nielsen-fired-homeland-illegal.html#comments

… the reason I’m posting … a link included in the comments section.

trump is emboldened after the emasculation of the Mueller Report, goodness knows what whacky dirty schemes he has afoot, installed stooge Barr aiding his tricks.

 

postscript… taking a look at how the nazis tumbled into blinkered self-regard and a shallow shitty existance, how spineless and pathetic they appeared at Nuremberg  … https://www.jpost.com/Jerusalem-Report/Books-Anatomy-of-Malice-469531

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_trials

I think we need to brush up on our history, how dangerous it is to think the little people the ordinary can be bullied and herded along and we needn’t take notice, to not help them; as much like trump delights in wielding the power of Presidential Office toward a helpless better life seeking refugee we need to regard their feelings and consider kindly what it is they would prefer.

trump the utter fascist, the liar and trouble maker fantasist that he is needs to be recognised for what it is. trump is hellbent on creating imbalance and disharmony; ignorance developed to an artform, as artless as it is; very much the schoolboy bully / thug.

The skilfull gradation of his onslaught is indeed very clever, you cannot say ‘moron’ or idiot because he in his horrible trumpian way is very clever, a nastiness gone crazy, thrown to its limit. trump is inded dangerous, his deliberate denigration and assault on the Free Press, his courting of dictators and to promote all that insults developed society.

These people below were uncertain, bewildered and whimsically excused every insult and deprivation that was pushed onto them until it was too late. No-one should be forced to do anything in this world that they do not willingly desire.

Cautious, not sure, herded along by the distant influence of an overpowering dictator

trumps deliberate psychology …

This Reuters piece sums up well the dreadful non-working mangle of broken government machine that trump and his cohorts have deliberately engendered and is insistent he will steer the USA to failure and bankruptcy.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-usa-document-exclusive/exclusive-with-a-piece-of-paper-trump-called-on-kim-to-hand-over-nuclear-weapons-idUSKCN1RA2NR

In other words when trump flew around the word only to abandon his Kim J Un fiasco it hinged upon and consisted of a piece of paper handed for them to read. Fool Bolton a man far worse at his job than realised seems to be the so called ‘architect’ of this shallow whacky scheme. The first meeting previously was itself vacuous, pointless; merely a way over expensive photo-op… just exactly what would delight trump. And as is often the case with trump I think he didn’t know what he was getting himself into. His wisecrack brag and brave face served upo for yv soundbites and home territory rallies would not serve well though an interpreter. I think also KJU now thinks trump is beneath him.

This comes round to what I’ve said previously that trump in fact is doing the opposite of the words he utters. This is exactly what Noam Chomsky has been saying for years  [however looking at Chomsky vids his attitude regard of Russia collusion is adamant its all a hoax, this i find baffling] … I wonder why Chomsky takes this view? Its like watching a burning building and remarking to a neighbour “I cannot see any fire”. Never mind; trump…

  • He tells the crowd “We will get tired of winning” …  in fact the truth is the people of the USA will get sick of losing.
  • All the gains of sixty years are being dismantled.
  • trump rallies are hour long masturbatory gorge-fests, this week telling everyone how he “Loves the Great Lakes” ….  in reality has probably never given them thought other than cut aid.
  • Fake – most applicable to himself.
  • Uses Ivanka and Jared as window dressing.
  • Dangerously intent on destabilising the Middle East. Witness Jeruselam, Golan Heights and sale of jet fighters to Taiwan.
  • trump is intent on disharmony and discord, to create tension and anger that could take generations to be resolved. Witness his hatred and denigration of anything Moslem. trump is clueless as to how we all live and ‘get along’ on this planet.
  • The swamp – if this can be described as callous disregard, how far can you abandon self respect, mimiking slithering ugly things covered in dirt only capable of behaving to ‘type’  and their refusal of truth and accuracy … no permanence, serving a ‘boss’ whatever at the White House with trump; or should we say what Russia has enabled; then trump has created his very own swamp.
  • In a swamp – the little things (the common people) have to survive best they can, niche and hidden trampled on if they don’t get out of the way… just how trump wants it.
  • Why does trump court dictators and those  with abysmal Human Rights? Giving them attention gives them a move toward mainstream acceptance, this is deliberate by trump, he is drawn to them; much as his obsession with sharks.
  • trump he says of himself is a ‘regular guy’, nothing cld be further from the truth.
  • trump rallies are stage managed to the extreme, the backdrop of vetted faces, the shallow bar-room banter. Recently trump using the BS trigger word for ‘USA’ chants to kick in. Ouch !
  • Endless dumbing down by trump, the dismantling and the unseen forces behind him will take a lot of effort to rebuild, he is squandering financial assets / capital on a reckless scale, diverting funds to schemes that have no valid reason to be augmented (the wall) … the enemy of the environment and climate change.
  • Theres no such thing as fake news as trump would like us to believe, merely a fake stance and fake information as issued and repeated by the White House. trumps lie count is endless, thank goodness there is the Free Press to keep tally and reckoning.
  • trump is running very much on a skeleton crew, he disregards experience, education, knowledge (probably despises all these things) and is ignorant of ability and professional contribution.
  • trump exists for and lives by the five second sound-bite.
  • The border wall – its for climate change under the pretext of present day immigration. The drug villains and criminals will not be on foot slogging down a road ….. fool trump and fool his tiny base for believing such nonsense !
  • Tax and business valuations kept hidden, likewise any school or academic record.
  • trump can barely read, this alone should preclude him from anywhere near Government.
  • trump base is smaller than stated, as usual with trump is exagerrated.
  • There is no ‘Art of the Deal’ with trump …. its all BS.
  • trump says “I’ve nothing to hide” … therefore he must have lots to hide !
  • No collusion (therefore in perennial trump inverting mindset) .. then there must be collusion !
  • Two hours with Putin in Helsinki (and other meetings elsewhere) …. no minutes taken deliberately… this is in fact treason.
  • Note how trump cannot circulate or converse freely or constructively at his several attempts to attend world leader Summits and Conferences, yet with Putin his handler you can hardly prise them apart. Likewise at mar-a-lago his own domain, he greases along excellently, the latter is his own business; world leaders and all they represent are anathema to him.
trump and his multi-pronged attack on decency and truth ..... a misguided and dangerous fool, the ultimnate con-man.
trump and his multi-pronged attack on decency and truth ….. a misguided and dangerous fool, the ultimate con-man.

So he looks to be doing nothing but in reality is a very dangerous destructive individual with lots of dark unseen backing. There is a more sophisticated mind at work, his constant harping at ‘fake news’ is corrosive, many gullible quick to react less advantaged jump in to join his populist tack. His is a ‘go nowhere’ mindset leading only to the suppression of ordinary populations and a moronic mindset of not questioning what is happening.

Its early days for the Mueller Report to present its facts as it is blocked by a four page Barr summary this is not utilising the Mueller material in a democratic manner. Everyone on the planet can see time and time again the Russia connection, Jareds desire for a back channel, phoney meetings, Russian money, two hours at Helsinki etc etc ….. to NOT be concerned would be disastrous. trump is the fool Putin needs to get out onto the world stage.

Heres a Guardian online quote …

But in Britain, we don’t have the bandwidth or the resolve or the understanding of the bigger picture to want to even try to understand this web of interconnected relationships. We stand by as Arron Banks and Nigel Farage ape Donald Trump. We remain incurious about the ties that connect them and the money behind them. We watch as they attack the press and seek to undermine our institutions.

end of quote.   Full article …  https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/mar/30/mueller-report-is-a-warning-britain-wont-listen-russian-interference

People need to be stronger and stand up to trump, to make him explain his reasons for implementing / doing / or wanting such a course of action. He likes to talk, loves the camera so let him in his presidential expertise wander off script as he so much likes to do and make the effort (of which he will be seen to be incapable) of explaining as in one adult to another for what reasons, the ‘why and how’ of his endless crazy and destructive actions.  He cannot.

further postscript: Years ago there was something called The House of Un-american Activities. I never would think they could be viewed in a positive light yet at what we are seeing with trump et al they would bust a gut at seeing what trump has done and is heading for. Even the slightest hint of even the first letter ‘R’ would send them into paroxysms of vindictiveness, cruelty and life altering and life destroying energy and anger. How things change!

Thinking is an ongoing thing …

How sad to see the present state of the Mueller report ie Tuesday 26th March 2019.

trump most certainly in his outward at least low brow fashion most definitely will insist all thinking upon the matter is now closed. To shut down any intellectual or plain basic common sense enquiry to the trump mind is now dead and finished. How sad.

What prompted me to write this post is this bizarre piece from the bbc …. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-47698811

Wow, some sort of collective lobotomy must certainly have occurred in the bbc news room to issue such biased unthinking nonsense. I will say in bbc defence their evening radio programme ‘The World Tonight’ 10pm r4 generally has more bite to it, closer to some critical thinking.

To inject some ‘thinking’ into this post, to help join up the many crappy little dots called the trump Administration and all the dirty connections lets read a critique to the situation so far ….. https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/2663585/posts/2219372963

We also read this morning that a billion dollars is going via a military conduit for the needless wall under completely needless and mis-applied Emergency Powers. Theres already sufficient wall in all the places that matter, ‘the wall’ to trump is merely a hellbent dogma spewed at rallies to whip the crowd up and give ’em something to think about meantime. Remember his backdrop of rally attendees are handpicked for the camera, the man in the hard hat etc all stereotypes and recently once he had shouted ‘bullshit’ to the crowd he triggered a pre-arranged chant of ‘USA USA USA’ etc. Its all a con, all fakery, something he excells in, stage managed like a tv reality show, one must admit possibly the most qualified in the country to do so.

trumps wall is totally needless, merely an exercise in human misery (and impending climate change which he will not openly admit) ….. to aid protect the excessively wealthy when everything ‘goes wrong’ for the ordinary person. When trump says he’s going to get ‘the mexicans’ to pay for the wall he really means the taxpayer. This is plain and simple trumps flip-flop reversal in so many instances. He calls the media fake when he himself is exercising fakery on a Grand Scale!

Now that Muellers Report is proving a watered down version of what most people had hoped for trump feels vindicated and emboldened for further new levels of craziness, incompetence and affront to decency and good sense. To push the unspoken agenda of his bigotted cohorts themselves mostly pickled in excessive wealth and utterly remote from ordinary peoples aspirations, hopes and fears.

Lets do some more ‘thinking’ …. this man Robert Reich can aid evaluation of how nasty and hopeless trump really is. He’ll say anything to win praise, to gain support at that instant.  Maybe hopeless isn’t the right word, more like ‘say anything at the time to protect his position’…. I had a mother like that and maybe thats why i hate such underhand deceit.

trump cares nothing for the ordinary person, for education, medical assistance or basic priveliges or rights for the ordinary general population. All are signs of totalitarianism / Fascism. His vacuous and quite useless promises re coal are hopelessly out of date, of bringing back jobs again hopelessly out of date and his denigration of for instance China quite obscene considering how much profit the West makes from importing goods from China. trump will bankrupt America much as he has done with his own inherited wealth. trump will say anything for a five second soundbite.

this is frightening …

Lara trump … utterly adrift from any sense of common decency, higher purpose, or Public Service. Money and the power that it brings drives them, is their God; its extraordinary such limited people have been able to gain tenure in the White House.

trump himself has no coherent Foreign Policy, knows nothing or can follow any Economic arguament, is destroying all he touches, is not in any sense suited to the role of President of the United States. Its all ‘front’, shallow veneer, no real depth; shunning his experts and scientists, his intelligence professionals, etc etc. Just as what he is, a crumby tv show persona.

For this woman Lara trump to utter such obscenities anywhere near the precincts of a democracy makes me cringe. A frightening social, intellectual and moral plunge from reality. They are too far removed and always have been during their lifetimes to have any real idea of fulltime working people on ordinary wages. To pull the trick of a shutdown and back up such absurdity to defend it is outrageous.

Politics in the US and specifically the Republican Party  has been hijacked by greedy money-obsessed overly self regarding undesirables, or is it more accurate to say the dark invisible influencers have drawn in anything trump to do their bidding, much as Putin secretly admits to himself ‘are useful idiots’. trumps rallies are distinctly stage-managed, witness recently the trigger word BS and immediately the hired stooges chant ‘USA USA USA’. This is what sensible reasonably honest people are up against, arch-manipulation.

Its as if the worst examples of glossy ‘society magazines’ have burst from the page to be made real and melded with the nastier parts of DC comics. We know that money, accumulated influence rule the roost… maybe they always had … but there has always been in the last 100 years a political arena and a democratic process to rein in such greedy self advancement. The trumps have no shame. Under what the trumps represent and are driving towards workers are mere fodder en masse to feed the economy. As with all things trump the insults donald hurls are most applicable to himself ie FAKE.

Politics is the mechanism whereby a better more just society can be promoted, with someone of the likes of Lara as below, decent values are being crowded out. I shudder to think of the conversations and phone calls that occur behind closed doors.
