Its too quick …

… the pace at which events are unfolding. Thank goodness James Mattis and Obama and others can get word out at the culminating insanity of a trump so-called ‘administration’ …. maybe more like a mal-administration that degrades humanity, the constitution and husbanding the environment.

We have now got into the area of Orwells ‘doublespeak’ where good is bad, right is left and its always getting better (not), the screen is everywhere (tho the latter is not trumps fault). The likes of Kayleigh Macenany beggar belief, we’ve seen it before but I just cannot understand that after three years of dirt from trump anyone whatsoever could defend the total disappointment known as trump, mr tv clip himself.

Likewise the utter crass upturning of truth and fact which seems to be a code of conduct of Republicans that still persist in accepting and encouraging a false message of the merits of their beloved d j trump. Note I deny trump upper case. What drives them, corporate greed, a scramble to buy up bankrupt agribusiness, are they so very obsessed with naked self interest?

trump didn’t know what to do with a Bible, in fact if ever an inhabitant of this planet needed guidance it is donald j trump and his coterie of scrambling hangers on. Very true that total power totally corrupts, Roy Cohn the master of nastiness himself would be very delighted to see how his protégé has turned out.

Worrying to see Genl Mark Milley step into the limelight (or the gaslight) …. I’d wondered who this totally on edge individual could possibly be a few months ago at his first widespread media exposure, standing behind trump nervous as could be imagined, primed and already on hyper-drive! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_A._Milley

Is trump a useful puppet? Who are his puppet masters in the US? Certainly Pence and Mnuchin are the first to come to mind. We know fine well he is in up to his chest beholden to Russia, quite easy to see in trumps lack of desire to investigate the queasy Russia connection, the two hour alone at Helsinki, the chumminess with Russias Kysliak, etc etc … it all stinks.

To dominate the news, the media, online, is trumps agenda, an agenda to stay in the White House at all costs; therefore corporate greed, self interest and the greedy cosy up to him. trump delights that something has come along to take attention away from worsening economic problems and from trumps quite hopeless and useless covid-19 mis-management.

Its true to say whatever trump says in fact the opposite is the actual truth. He slams and points to the media as fake when he himself is the fake, he derides people of ability and learning whilst he himself seems stuck at the level of a ten year old, everyone is a liar whilst only donald j trump has the truth!

Everyone must read and learn from past times of difficulty and danger, per Dr MLK  “Be true to what you said on paper” … The Constitution. History, to read and learn from it is vital at this time.

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 …

And heres my little cartoon, quite accurate I think.

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

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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

 

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]

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

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” !

trump ever the evil clown…

trumps performance at Davos as everywhere he goes is repugnant to any caring, free thinking sensible citizen, in the last couple of days all we hear is trump carnage and apparent ineptitude, but however the gold plated turd does in fact seem to have some ie a little energy and momentary focus, witness the removal of wetland protection and environmental safeguards for water quality … like that runny clear thing that is the cornerstone to a families establishment and a communities survival.

Destruction and the lowest common denominator is the trump byword, nothing good comes from trump. He is a showman, a fairground barker, a Father Coglan; trump mobilises hate. trump has no real ethical talent, he just knows that de-stabilising the sludge at the bottom of the barrel might just keep him in Office.

I particularly am horrified at trumps absolute refusal to take notice of the natural world (ie that thing outside the window that makes the clouds roll by) …  of climate and how quickly unfriendly feedbacks are cascading into a most horrible scenario.

It beggars belief the White House has sunk so low, the web / social media aiding his prospects enormously.

Chemtrail diary 3 Jan 2020.

Data on NASA Worldview shows Geneva, Lausanne, Bern and Zurich being subject to chemtrail.  https://go.nasa.gov/35qHcQo

Tyrrhenian Sea gets chemtrail today, Vatican City.  https://go.nasa.gov/2MO9rSo

Barcelona, Valencia chemtrails. https://go.nasa.gov/2sKqIoD

A closeup of the above link chemtrail Barcelona Gerona https://go.nasa.gov/2SVtiTL

Chemtrails in vast amount central Spain https://go.nasa.gov/2ZUtNik

Its still early in the day, Worldview has hardly covered the UK so no chance yet to alter base layers to help interpretation.

I’ve taken a pic of the sky outside, occasional say three an hour chemtrail but nothing more, nothing lasting. The days here are unusually, unseasonally warm. Ask anyone in western Norway, in Australia, they’ll all say the same. I shudder for Spain in eight months time, already they have problems with land becoming yet more parched and wells, boreholes becoming dry. Look at Manilla, bbc radio news tells us the island is actually sinking as they are extracting more water than sensible. Its mad that Australia is so coal reliant, after all a country known for sunshine.

NASA Worldview ties in with what I’m seeing above (today) unlike a couple of days ago when chemtrail data (chemtrail corridor) indicated on Worldview but little overhead to ring alarm bells; a disjoint, not very often that happens.

We wake this morning to hear yet more of the slo-mo train crash of the trump presidency, his meddling in matters of which he has no idea, no policy other than belligerence, as is characterised by his complete life. Unpaid debt, fantasy, illusion, he treats everything as a tv appearance in the ‘trump movie’. Never trust any man with such a ridiculous hairstyle.

trump is in fact a bully, a terrorist; a desperate fool aching for war that of course will be fought with other peoples effort, other peoples blood; never his own (aka Pvt Bonespurs).

Whoever inherits this mess from trump will have lots of diplomacy, outreach, re-jigging to perform; trump has done nothing but engender hatred. We likewise have the atrocious D Cummings in Number 10.

 

postscript ten hours later … we all know trump is a liar and a fraud.

I could cry, the world does not need this. The stupidity and crass absurdity of the trump administration KNOWS NO BOUNDS.

ivanka trump…

… sorry but you don’t get caps.

Interesting article in the UK Guardian, demonstrates to be most careful when attempting to appear cleverer than you really are; interesting link in that a window opens to erudition, the lives of people long ago, material that we can learn from.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/nov/23/ivanka-trump-tweet-de-tocqueville-factcheck

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

Funny the wiki mentions Metz, a place been rattling around my head from a couple of day now, its a small world at times.

I often wonder to what extent the key-clicking social media ie twitter outreach by the trumps is in fact performed by some lackey with an hour to spare. These are strange people indeed and most certainly should not be anywhere near the White House. Also strange that criticism can be so stymied once self-interest, ego and greed kicks in.

Why is it the trumps soil most everything they touch, are oblivious to the honourable truth? Ace hoodwinkers.

Meanwhile, trumps bizarre, nonsensical and offensive withdrawl from the Paris climate accord, destruction of the EPA, the insane roll back of so many hard won advances on environment and pollution is tantamount to a war crime.

During trumps fake tenure ignorance rules.

 

 

Absurd election pledges.

If it cannot be solved commercially then its utter folly to guarantee broadband to EVERY household in the UK, a wide open pledge that will most certainly come to haunt Labour if God forbid they were in power. Are we not suffering sufficiently already with web addiction?

My smug hapless and bragging IR35 friend a posturing keen to be seen Labour voter likewise will regret the tightening of iffy tax loopholes, much as Diane Abbot realised on radio interview a couple of years ago its essential you can ‘do numbers’ when promising expenditure (re increase on police recruitment). There was austerity for a reason, but its a shame much Council and Social Services were lost, pity the madness of bailing out the Banks or Gordon Brown selling the UK gold reserves at the lowest price !

Inducements like candy for voters go back a long time, originally it was “Vote for me and you get a loaf of bread” possibly a better option than in these ‘modern times’ as the compliant cannot be duped, cannot be brushed aside months or years later when the so-called election pledges are thin memories, they get their loaf.

The absurd simplemindedness of Labours pledges and bribes beggars belief …

a shorter working week,

huge extra money for the NHS,

funding lifelong learning,

comprehensive childcare,

the compulsory purchase of the jewel ie BT broadband.

I might otherwise have been thinking of voting Labour as when you get a ‘good’ or effective Labour MP they shine, but theres too many Labour crew that are woefully and dreadfully lacking. A lot of the above pledges are wide open to manipulation and potentially a needless take-up by the dishonest that is taking for taking sake. Why do we have to fund lifelong learning for someone at taxpayer expense when in fact they would never bother to pick up a book and teach themselves, to gain a groundwork of the subject at home.

For instance personal health and how common sense can save a lot of money later in life, Doctors increasingly encourage people to get out and exercise, to walk as a regular hobby, many will not do this. Look around see the epidemic of obesity. Instead for a near zero cost preventative measure in later life the NHS will have to step in and pick up the pieces.

Corbyn is a master of the soundbite, of the indignant response to injustice and failings of his adversaries, but I think his own travelling caravan of Government would be wasteful, nonsensical, quite a charade.

Its a bad way to run any system, country or business by continually reversing the work of the previous encumbants every few years. Thank God for the Upper House.

Why is it theres so much nonsense around, witness the determination on HS2 to pursue the not needed max upper speed when lowering the upper operating speed a few percent will save billions and possibly save lives and stress in the longterm for everyone.

The one thing no-one is talking about, the increase in UK retirement age which is a scandalous stratification and divisive act of cruelty, this needs to be stopped. 

Raising the retirement age hits the honest and the ordinary, the little people, in the worst way possible. If we are so-called ‘civilised’ then the retirement age should be reduced, not increased. The Chinese for instance find it incredulous we work beyond age fifty. Its all very well politicians that have the opportunity to rest their backsides on occasion to pursue the aged, the hurting and crack the whip further, but can they not realise how quite scandalous and very cruel this policy actually is. Also realise anyone with sufficient money has no need to work any more at some tedious or fatiguing low status job, those that can have already ‘got out’ therefore this stupid retirement age increase hits those that already are hurting, the most vulnerable.

 

 

The gold-plated turd known as trump.

I cannot believe trump is allowed to inhabit the Office of President. It is quite baffling, his apparent low IQ approach and defiance of decency, good sense and not one iota of human compassion renders his Presidency as to be evil. Its his backers that need to be recognised and tallied, a sordid mess. A mobster tenure.

This below is a useful resume of his wrecking ball, super-arrogant and ignorant so-called presidency.

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/president-trump/opinions-donald-trump-corrupted-absolutely/ar-AAIFZrz?ocid=spartanntp#image=AAyuwGR|29

 

Trump is a clown.
This is the swamp ie trump… a total fake that can barely read !

 

A defiant little shit.

The ultimate fake, schooled by a decade of crummy tv programme and thinking he can ride the tv soundbite, ride the people of the USA.

Look at that face, a face determined to be blinkered to reality, to see nothing, to live in its own constructed bubble, in fact a bubble-gum mentality of nothing over the horizon that could possibly interest him intellectually, nor offer any compassion to anything outside of that bubble. In my opinion he will go down as being quite sordid and the most dreadful aberration to decency and good humanitarian practice one could imagine. Mao of China perpetrated the most dreadful ignorance and callous disregard to rights and human life, trump in his way will be his equal.

Any normal person would be crushed by the embarrassment of being trump, but oh no not Private Bonespurs himself; he exists in his own fantasy bubble. The most recent chaos of destabilising the Middle East and his abandonment of the Kurds is a most evil and callous act, as if acted out without even a moments consideration to the human suffering and turmoil created. But that is the nature of trump, it is an ongoing chaos.

Its strange and frightening how such a destructive individual is by a series of flukes and manouverings, by seeking out vested interests of big money pals and enabled by tv skills honed over a decade has enabled trump to weasel himself into the Oval Office. I’ve met someone like trump before, all that results is a room full of broken toys, festering utter distrust and a fake reality based on fantasy rather than the here and now.

Climate change, a laymans guide.

I often feel there is difficulty in finding or locating the latest on climate change ie increasing methane, ice loss, feedback loops etc.

This overview by Sam Carana holds up well, succinct and eminently digestible for the layman; I am a layman.   http://arctic-news.blogspot.com/p/extinction.html

It illustrates the stacking pernicious influences which in themselves arithmetically ensure sufficiently our downfall and even for this guaranteed scenario Sam Carana plays a light touch re the inevitable compounding and accelerating positive feedback loops that will push us into a whole new series of situations. Its all a quite dire mix, highly ironic as its mainly the consumption of oil and gas from ancient diatoms that has led to our demise, taking away the fundamental first layer of oceanic food chain and 20% of the worlds CO2 >O conversion. And yet no-one has ever seen a diatom with the naked eye.

I think I’m correct in saying it was independent scientist James Lovelock that discovered the gas DMS a product of oceanic plankton and its importance. I suggest read his autobiography, an instructive blend of practical science, talent and an independent thinking mind.

Also …  https://www.whoi.edu/oceanus/feature/dms–the-climate-gas-youve-never-heard-of/

Sam Carana in a more recent post highlights the disregard paid by the latest IPCC (Sept 2019) briefing / report in which NO FIGURE IS QUOTED for the effects of subsea methane in its three forms, frozen hydrates, microbial, capped gas deposits. The IPCC are criminal in this neglect. However not as criminal as donald trump in the rolling back and eradication of decades of wise strategies to husband the planet more sensibly; but of course trump would know nothing of the natural world.
