trump had ‘quality time alone’ with K J-un. What did they talk about? It must have been excruciating for K J-un to hear via translation trumps usual garbage talk, “People are saying, I’ve heard, soon we, amazing fantastic, he’s a great guy a really great guy” etc etc …. theres only so many minutes this junk can fill the space. And it ended up as surveying for condos and what a great beach that is, I’ve seen those beaches …
I’ve always maintained all schoolkids need the old Roman subject of Rhetoric, 2k years old but more vital than ever. Even modern day speech writers go back to and are very aware of what the original masters could do with words. But nowadays words are being used to dumb down to such an extent its gone through the floor. Fox News for instance in some households (many in fact) would be intolerable yet still for those that like to hear that sort of thing, to reinforce their viewpoint it is allowed to squawk.
People seem unable to really see through to the facts, even bbc r4 news is riddled with bias and can spout things that are actually incorrect, its a regular occurrence particularly in its seeming endless refusal to paint trump in his true colours, as to how bad he actually is. His chaos even a year ago was clearly visible as evil.
Theres a term ‘semantics’ ie the meaning and relationship of words and boy-o-boy we increasingly need this tool of criticism to get a handle on what is ACTUALLY happening in the USA. As many people say ie Noam Chomsky others and this link below we must get past trumps endless churn and chaos and see the real dismantling and greed that is running riot in presentday POTUS 45 USA. I try to keep these posts brief and hope the main effort of any passerby is to read or listen to the link yet for example the present separation of children from parents at the US Border is indeed cruel. The last time this happened was with Japanese residents in the USA eighty years ago and as everyone realises was the darkest stain in the history of 20C America …and trump is repeating it. Seldom I am coarse myself but he acts the blind tyrant at G7 then flies to K J-un for a butt kissing session, later wishing ‘his people’ sat up to attention when HE spoke.
trump is …
knows nothing from history
refuses to face the truth in anything
mangles the spoken word till it is worthless
a con man
and is riding the American people unashamedly.
The above actually fit precisely Hitler and Stalin, yet Mao I concede was well read but nonetheless twisted the present to his own manufactured fantasy, ignoring practical experience, hard won methods and practices. Yes, a brain malfunction/inverting handicap shared with trump.
Why with so much ‘college education’ of the general population how and why is he able to get away with this ???
Heres a worthwhile read to try and get some light and reasoned thinking onto the present day trumpian nightmare … but it needs action, its a cliche but words are not enough. And just thinking, why did Keith Olbermann bow out all uncharacteristically all smiles and job done … when in fact theres worse to come??
