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.

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.

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.

 

Bill Maher at his best …

I was going to use the title ‘What would a dick do … ” but maybe google frowns on such direct address … instead we can read the title Bill Maher at his best and hear how the Republicans or more accurately the twisted self interest of over-wealthy benefactors can turn the ear of what should be a democratic process; wow America is hijacked !!!

btw … money DOES corrupt.

trump deliberately shreds climate good sense…

Yup, the Clown in Chief wheezes and chunters onward strapped into his dodgem car of  stupidity ….

parp parp bang bang crash collide !

trump and his quite evil disregard of impending climate change is a danger, a gross refusal to get savvy and wise up to what needs to be done. a supreme example of ignorance. I cannot even say pig-headed, its an insult to pigs.

Google loves me i can tell, I seem to have completely disappeared from what previously had been first page image results when I googled for ‘chemtrail UK’ or ‘UK chemtrails’ …  I think its from pasting a youtube from an active critic of chemtrails that indeed has himself been dropped / banned by youtube and google. One gets the feeling google is sucking up to trump just a little bit too much. Time will tell. from this one can assume that anything ‘subjective’ is being policed and freedom of opinion is being hampered, again, George Orwell predicted this.

Heres an update on the trump administrations laundering of truth, the refusal to listen to experts …

trump misinformation, whitewash and sheer despicable nonsense…

… this is criminal in its outright steam roller of any objective truth, of any adult or serious reflection of what is the real world. Brave Cap’n Bonespurs seems to know no limit of the garbage he can spew for soundbite and camera, its all tv to him, crummy reality show or from that big house on the hill, it makes no difference to him. In a sense its as if we are all being brainwashed, horribly just as predicted by George Orwell.

The audacity of a semi-illiterate to repeat and repeat (I quote) “In the history of our country” and declare he is “The most transparent President ever” is shocking, mind numbing, frightening. But that’s how he works, he frightens, scares, up-ends any sane mature viewpoint. History and the books pertaining are all closed to him, as with everything, he makes it up as he goes along, held in equilibrium as if in a spiders web of delusion, hidden agenda and BS for the masses (ie the handy medium of tv).

Look for instance at what would or should have been a diplomatic career in the service of a trump Administration, to provide diplomatic outreach of a constructive nature, but trump has wrecked any top-flight endeavour, no ‘best people’ would ever work for such a fascistic ignorant Administration, trump is toxic and prefers do-all stand-ins of most dubious ability and experience on the wider world stage … treading water, hanging on.

The plus point is that once trump is ousted one way or another, there will be many fine people, top level performers quickly able to step forward and work to shrink the memory of trump and move forward in the world to better things.
