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://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.

 

 

Collective madness?

What is the matter with people? Why is it we hear such madcap nutty ideas from ppl that should know better?

Today we have the Labour Conference and when it comes to nationalisation (not a wholly bad thing) instead of electricity gas or water or the railways we hear its the organised theft of Public Schools ie fee-paying education that is bugging loony Labour long into the night! At least they had the wit to keep Diane Abbot away from interview today, enough damage has been done …. “Jeremy said at Conference last October” is not the best or brightest.

Fee paying education offers diversity and choice and hopefully excellence for those that want it, ie pupils pay far better attention and both expect to get on in life and their parents expect success too. My own frustration at state school for instance was how hopeless art and science were taught, so I taught myself. I’ve seen the strata of material available as pupils for state school, our Labour stronghold here offers plenty of examples of the dregs; take a drive around, young overweight couples without work wheeling the pram, a significant benefits obsessed layer of daytime tv that voluntarily or sadly against their will could hardly hold prospect of climbing from their unfortunate position and children freely gobbing up their real or imagined class affirmation ‘tick’ as they leave school each day (have they ever heard of TB)?  Yet the town is mostly good people, the worst third as usual colouring the whole scene. Here in the UK there is a diversity of class, expectation, education and demeanour, thank God for it, it should be celebrated!

In my experience excessively good and sparkling facilities do not make for necessarily a better exam result, the gear and tackle will generally stand there un-used more an Open Day prop to impress as happened for instance in my country Secondary School forty five years ago, it mostly still boils down to old-fashioned ‘chalk and talk’ memorising and understanding the nuts and bolts. Many science lessons were reduced to ‘playing hangman’ at the so-called teachers request. Why did no-one complain to the Headmaster?

Why is it that increasingly we are witnessing the most bizarre nuttiness from politicians that should know better? This reminds me of the problem a century or more ago when it was not realised the lead in canned goods for say an expedition to the Antarctic resulted in madness, dragging a piano onto the ice as essential travelling kit. I do not possess a mobile phone and as having a little electronics knowledge know fine well to NOT put such high frequency RF next to my head. Maybe that’s the connection?

Corbyns posturing and ill-defined position throughout the Brexit debacle has been shameful, even now he is unable to take the lead and is a Master of Obfuscation. What does he do all day … ruminate twiddling his beard and stare at the clouds?

The latest wheeze to abolish prescription charges, a multi-billion pound expense was hardly countered nor with near nothing for research and action in how to counter the Grim Reaper … ahem … I mean climate change. I think this is called ‘electioneering’ a free loaf of bread if you vote for me! 

 

Postscript … dithering useless Jeremy Corbyn still will not formulate a line of action to pursue and move forward, there is a vast amount of work to be done, yet still his dwindling supporters stress ‘loyalty’ to a limp useless obfuscator that has done nothing but hinder ie Jeremy Corbyn. Its as if they are all in a dark totally unlit room yet are kidding themselves there is complete illumination and bright pin sharp clarity, all able to perform their tasks to perfection!

Loyalty to a donkey?

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.

The American soybean farmer.

My heart bleeds for America with the incompetence and inadequacy of trump steering them to longterm damage and the destruction of so many areas of life and work. Nancy Pelosi tells us she prays for trump, that his family need to “do something about him” … the trump we witness is pretty well the donald j trump that has always existed. Hopeless and always pretending.

America has been conned bigtime, taken in by a slick soundbite charm of a latter day snake-oil salesman. We should have known fine well that skills honed at a crummy reality tv show would circumvent any need knowledge, ability or experience. This is a so-called President functioning at the level of a ten year old. Making ones-self and ones rattle-bag regime hated around the world is not how civilisation was meant to progress.

Its also commonly thought that trump is deliberately destroying family owned and small / medium farm enterprises so that big corporations can wipe up at bargain basement prices. In fact this IS what will happen viewing current indicators.

And yet still its quite easy to encounter people that consider this buffoon called trump to be ‘the man’. In my opinion people are less educated than they have been since 1940 and trump and his hidden twisted backers play on this fact. Here in the UK  bbc radio news (apart from ‘The World Tonight’ at 10pm) has been abysmal, quite pathetic in its refusal to portray trump as the world danger that he is. It seems that the more that media and tv is mass market the more likely it has dumbed down. Its easy here in the UK to find people every day that think trump is self made, trump is successful, trump is the leader that the USA needs etc etc …. this is both quite staggering and alarming in its misinformation.

For instance here is an example of idiocy and how low brow, how unthinking we have become …. https://www.standard.co.uk/showbiz/celebrity-news/exwestlife-star-brian-mcfadden-says-donald-trump-is-exactly-what-britain-needs-a4151921.html

However, the point of this post is the example of one of many fronts where trump is destroying established markets and established trust, ie soybean growers and their export markets namely China.  trump will have no idea that crops have to be planted, of the massive outgoings only covered once the payments are received for agricultural produce sown, nurtured, ripened, harvested, stored, transported across the world and delivered, of contracts entered in to and honoured. Note the last word ie ‘honoured’ a very non-trumpian term. trump lives in a self invented bubble where offering 50c in the dollar to desperate creditors is ‘being clever’ !!! ‘The Art of the Deal’… more like ‘The Art of the Screw’! … and as is openly acknowledged trumps ghost-written book is in fact fiction.

Remember, a few billion to the farmers is nothing compared to the trillion handed back to the already super rich and the super slick.

trump is immoral, not to be trusted in any way whatsoever, a dysfunctional chaos, a blight, a pasteboard mask; it is chiefly the thing behind the mask I question and rail against.

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.

Who is steering trump?

Worth listening to, to get a grip on how the world is prceeding and how trump it seems merely mimics other controversial leaders. The expert appears at 03:00 and helps shed light on where current dynamics and desires. Note again trump and his upside-down triangle, always the upside-down triangle.

We learn of a barrier / barbed wire at the southern border, of refugees in camps, threats, poor treatment, of controlling the press, of controlling the judiciary, all mirrored in trumps own Idiocracy. Who’s telling trump what other Fascists around the world he needs to meet and greet? After all, trump can hardly read a map, can hardly get to the second sentence in any briefing material. Therefore who is steering trump?

Head in the sand jingoistic nonsense …filthy tariffs from trump.

bbc r4 Today programme had a most horrible twisted interviewee that I suppose valuably shed light on how insane some of the thinking is in the trump Regime. Asst Prof Dr Greg Autry of Southern California, years ago author of a book titled ‘Death by China’ was given prominent airtime this morning.  Why are we hearing this … oh my goodness, its hard to believe what we hear…

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/live:bbc_radio_fourfm

The alarming and skewed nonsense, I mean the interview with Asst Prof Greg Autry starts at 08:10 and we can say that this interview is certainly enlightening, I think Autry doesn’t realise he’s being exposed as the regressive jingoistic dinosaur he appears to be. Citing 19C USA tariff mindset, Hamiltonian Economics and openly regarding Zhongguo (China) as a suitable case for I quote “regime change”, its all worrying to hear. Perhaps Autry (if he is so keen on historical precedent) forgets its the Chinese that built the railroads out to the Pacific and lost many lives in the process, blasting through difficult terrain etc when white men would not perform such work. Perhaps Autry (if he is so keen on historical approaches) forgets the Imperialist crowbar from the British that resulted in flooding China with opium in the nineteenth century; the west cannot regard themselves as any beacon of virtue.  Also mentioning three times instances of ‘concentration camps’ being used within in a couple of minutes (yes we get the message) … admittedly there are some terrible things still happening in China BUT …. China has come a long way since the Communists took over in 1946, then thankfully the demise of Mao and since 1980 has worked miracles, has evolved at extraordinary pace in all fronts and provided the world with low cost product that has allowed massive profit margins and still allowed ordinary people to buy so much at such keen prices. And yet trump and his nasty imperial regressives want to bite off the hand that has enabled so much easy profit to be made by western businesses large and small !  Uh-oh this is v dangerous territory for the Asst Prof to hammer home all points of negativity and yet ignore totally where the world can work towards something better and is (was?) working toward something better.  This ignorant mindset upsets me, after hearing the interview I felt as when I heard the abysmal ‘Inaugration Speech’ from trump, close to tears.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/live:bbc_radio_fourfm

Chuck Schumer is also cited as hailing to trump “Hang tough with China”. If its the same Chuck Schumer I’m thinking of then I’m very surprised at his low-brow simplistic exhortations.

Asst Prof Greg Autrys book actually of 2011 vintage received abysmal reviews and is generally described as jingoistic alarmist nonsense citing problems but offering no solutions, no understanding of how to move forward. As if shouting at foreigners will make them understand you any more easily, or more obedient. This is where the present leadership of the USA has descended. Therefore we wonder how far the bbc scraped the barrel to come up with this particular interviewee Greg Autry… bbc radio news other than ‘The World Tonight’ at 10pm is often is hardly worth airtime in the perennially golden glow it casts toward trump, imagine you were blind and this were your only news source!

One little man Autry with one little misguided outdated book his shot at fame, his ‘theory’ of how to deal with China does not make an opinion. Rather ask the hundreds and thousand of Heads of Corporation what they think of the direction and inabilities of trump? Tariffs cannot help anyone. trump already is creating suffering, turmoil and needless poverty and upset in the middle east, Iran, North Korea etc now he’s heading toward China. He is attempting to engineer particular regimes and countries on the world map to increase and prosper whilst to damage others. Perhaps his low attention span and lack of grasp will work to the worlds advantage.

There needs to be greater more honest psychological evaluation of the so-called God help us – Commander in Chief, he is much as when a younger man, veneer thin, blustering, ignorant. In his lack of ability he thinks tv skills will serve him sufficient for whatever task he performs, frighteningly there is a grain of sense in  this bizarre mindset

  •  trumps total inability to organise, form and develop any deal whatsoever, this a reflection of his life so far.
  •  trumps inability to realise or cope with Asian protocol, diplomatic technique or manners.
  • trumps total denial of the need for an intelligent experienced Diplomacy. Bolton and Pompeo are nowhere near up to this task.

As you can see I deny trump upper case.
