trump is telling us how he thinks …

So they’ve caught the bomber thank goodness. Yet still the inflammatory inciteful words and swagger of donald j trump knows no bounds, even playing with reporters that he might even raise it a notch. This is the measure of trump, the arrogance and insanity. The worse it gets the better he feels. Its an automatic turnover or flip on every conceivable thing that comes along.  Remorse, realisation, reflection are alien to him. For instance possessing a notion to denuclearise NK yet ramp up Americas weapons to the insanity of the Cold War again !

He uses his words strangely, apparently delighting in all the turmoil and anxiety he is creating as if a most obnoxious teenager.  He is feeding on it.

It certainly fits that he likes watching vids of sharks; they circle and flex, swagger and kill, no thinking, no remorse, nothing.

His relationship toward and need for his trashy rallies is shameful, horrifying.

This has all the moves of Fascism.

Here I quote the article above ….

“I heard he was a person that preferred me over others,” he said of Sayoc. “There’s no blame, there’s no anything.”

What !! ?? How immoral can any so-called ‘leader’ become? trump is indeed dangerous, the sooner this winds up the better. Utterly blind to know what is right or wrong.

I quote … The media have “a responsibility to set a civil tone and to stop the endlessly hostility and constant negative and often times false attacks and stories,” he said at a campaign rally in Wisconsin. “No one should carelessly compare political opponents to historical villains, which is done often, all the time, got to stop, we should not mob people in public spaces or destroy public property. … We must accept the verdicts of elections and remember America’s greatest achievements have always been those achievements we embark on together. End of quote.

Lies are trumps coinage and he thinks he can buy anything with them.

In actual reality (taking Fox out of the equation) the media, the Free Press have extended great patience to trump, he blatantly (again I use that word) swaggers contrary to all decency, truth and justice. He cares nothing for these things. Look who got elected! Witness the deceit and lies from Sarah Huckabee, the refusal to acknowledge any form of open questioning or honest analysis of this horrible situation.  Outright Fascism and with hindsight promoted from an early stage of trumps tenure. Huckabee up at that podium will be an enduring image of this nasty regime.

As usual with trump the insults he hurls at others are actually most applicable to himself … lock her (himself) up, fake, false, crooked, the swamp etc. trump doesn’t care what he says as long as he can spout a ten second sound-bite and whip up the trouble-hungry and peeved faction he depends on as a voter base, he is riding them. What it is to live at an ordinary ‘regular’ level, to get along with ones neighbours and community and society, to develop and contribute, to serve, all are sorely absent from the trump mindset and the nasty society he would wish to encourage.

I fear how this will progress unchecked, this week we hear trump wants to end nuclear treaties, cosy with Putin in the White House, feels no horror at a crazy letter bomber, targets refugees, cuts Central American aid, trashes the Free Press, basks in his stage managed rallies.

I’ll use the same pic as used previously, it fits  ….

trump and his multi-pronged attack on decency and morals …..


Political cartoonists of centuries past would see the trump distasteful shenanigans as continuous bucketloads of manure ripe for growing yet more and more commentary. Reality being more absurd than anything they could invent.

James Gillray, William Hogarth, Thomas Rowlandson, George Cruikshank a role call of critical thinking, we can learn !


postscript … Here a few hours later …

Apparently of CNN trump would like to portray as his arch-enemy and has spouted lots of hot air to the effect, lots of bile to whip up his rallies, but in reality as usual it is a most patient and carefully handled report. CNN cannot get any fairer than this. Notice how trump rides on the economic improvements from the Obama years. And of course loses no time in constantly telling everyone the mere presence of himself is a magic elixir to Economic Performance, when in fact as has been anecdotally proven he is clueless ie his off the cuff idea of printing more money to make a country richer! A clown, an inept among grown men, a conman, a very good snake-oil salesman, a showman. I also add pantomime dame, the ruthlessness of a shark and fascist dictator as per my previous notes here. All are valid, all are demonstrably true.

Take away the good economic figures which quite by luck were set in motion from the Obama years and all you have is destruction and retrograde activity, turning the clock back.

To use the venacular “It will come back to bite him on the arse” once trade tariffs, super-rich tax handbacks, no action on climate change and the numbers and lack of Policy with time reveal themselves. Nero fiddling hadn’t a patch on this !!


the measure of trump …

… he is a hollow man.

Little better than a wind-up clockwork toy, yet the GOP remains so silent, at least from what we glean from news in the public domain, but I bet theres some frantic cellphone tirades at the idiocy of what we see and hear. Its like a bunch of kids that have found a way too powerful motorbike, they can’t believe their luck or how powerful the thing sounds. Really, really, yes! So much is placed on an invented public profile, he gives ’em what they want to hear. Fascism always works in this way, riding a wave to power, yet it always goes wrong and I haven’t got the patience of fifteen years to see this work its way out again.

An instance yesterday,  following the postal bombs trump at that evenings rally in a most hollow tone  “We must behave ourselves” … even a child could see through that one, a most hollow tone. Yet he still launches into an ungrounded and idiotic kidney punch at the Free Press. Postal explosive devices in mainland USA are exceedingly rare, I suspect a dirty tricks department.

Here we see below the Fool intending to leave the room when he’s forgotten the task in hand.

A clever fool, think on the graded incremental approach in rhetoric, very finely judged, perfectly paced. Theres lots of chatter behind him, when a so-called President relies on cronies and ‘interested parties’ for influence then how can he ever in any shape or form be considered fit for Office. He feeds from his rallies, note the handpicked stooges to rear, all very clever but after all djt is a seasoned reality tv performer, likewise Ivanka.

Its Fascism straight and clear and I reckon his supporters would be hard pressed to define its meaning ie its loss of freedom, individuality, possibilities for self improvement, total eradication of anything pertaining to justice, decency, honesty and clear open thinking. All Fascism as it evolves its power and State control has always pandered  to the perceived ills and sleights of the struggling working person or those in a precarious position. They like how he assaults established norms, authority. Its like “I’m gonna vote for that trump guy – he’s gonna give me what I want” …. and most certainly he will not.

trump and his multi-pronged attack on decency and morals …..


postscript … these are indeed disturbing times. Increduously trump would like to angle for a news media that only spouts forth his own moronic ideals or those of his crooked old white men followers, GOP and otherwise. How can any form of voter base follow anyone that is so remote from real people, from reality?  like taxes are not for him. Calling ‘home’ a gilded cage atop a skyscraper of his own making ?  Or ‘home’ can be any number of golf courses and commoners being charged annually $400k to be allowed entry to Court. Never knowing the ordinary progresson of life, I would say in their new role inhabiting the White House  ‘actors playing a part’ to the core. These are indeed strange people. Jareds father himself serving time for vote rigging aong other things. A strata of high income society that would better have remained concealed, djt in his imbecilic belief he had a chance at POTUS 45 has himself indeed turned over the rock and shown us all what crawls around beneath it.

trump and his pantomime …

Quite an accurate comparison, we certainly have a full cast.

trump Friday as usual swims against – no that is too dynamic a word – feebly, limply  utters the usual predictable contradiction to world opinion for what went on in the Embassy with a now dead  journalist. He tries so hard to sound authorative but sounds like a weekend dad putting forward the usual empty promises. He has probably the worlds most powerful and comprehensive Intelligence organisations to provide data but they go unheeded and are belittled and disregarded. That is because their abilities, level of performance etc are something trump despises. Its also because only they can keep tabs on him and get a real view as to how entangled he is with Russia and Russian money.

He’s trying so hard to appear the big man, to have the angle. His favourite press chat lately being to the whirr of the helicopter waiting to whisk him away to his golf course, to hold Court on his terms for the weekend. I couldn’t care less about him but he certainly should not be a President.  He’s a Presider, nothing else.  Being a President matters not one jot to him, playing the idiot pantomime character whilst everyone else is scurrying around doing their own thing and the villains gaining advantage every minute. Or like some buffoon in a traditional childrens pantomime when everyone is screaming “Its the Russians its the Russians” … yet this old dame acts and speaks nonsense … unheeding to anything obvious to everyone else.

to recap  …

  • two hours alone with Putin, no minutes kept this is treason.
  • destruction of world trade agreements, no valid reasoning.
  • denigration of established world security, NATO etc.
  • introducing trade tariffs where no-one wins, US farmers will be hard hit.
  • Puerto Rico most ineptly handled…..
  • a thoroughly ignorant denial of Climate Change.
  • every insult hurled is most applicable to himself….
  • the world is screaming ‘Its the Russians’ and Donald is deaf ….
  • only past experience is immense financial comfort, tax avoidance on a massive scale, reality tv and selling his name as a franchised brand.
  • a six times bankrupt, as reliable as a slithering snake.
  • creating chaos as in evil.
  • destruction of much that has taken many people years to build and implement, environment, healthcare, human rights, equality etc etc.
  • denial of free speech, denigration of a Free Press, veering to Fascism.
  • insulting to all women, a deliberate denigration of ppl of colour.
  • lies, fakery and obfuscation on a massive scale.
  • trying to turn America into a tribal angry country (this is Bannon)  anxiety, again chaos.
  • trump applauds thuggery and ignorance.

That is one heck of a record, a negative record.


trump and his multi-pronged attack on decency and morals …..


I cannot let it go …

… that trump yet again on last nights charade I mean rally adamantly applauds, congratulates such immorality; inciting anger and promoting physical abuse toward the Free Press, indeed anyone of the Free Press and last night notably Guardian Reporter Ben Jacobs.

Its time for the F word ie FASCISM. These masturbatory stage-managed sessions of trump (so-called rallies)  need to be seen for what they are. His tv reality show skills have served him well.

This undoubtedly is fascism. I am horrified and much troubled. Yet we must remember that what trump projects may not be the actual truth, may not be a true reflection of how people feel and most certainly is not at all a mainstream movement. As with all things trump there is much that is smaller than you think, his so-called business success, his abilities in general, his insight and understanding, his ability to lead a nation as President.  He knows he gets worldwide major coverage, but I think he needs to be seen for the hollow man he is; a human form of the animal genus Sus, facing downwards nose buried raking about in the dirt.  Ironic its yet another parallel from writer George Orwell.

Look back to other Fascists, they work the sore of the disaffected to ride along on them as a platform, they project a sense of injury imaginarily perpetrated by minorities so that others can hitch a ride in ‘denigrating’ and feeling superior. They abuse free speech, they have madcap schemes and see sleight and offence where none exists. This is as if adverbatim from the trump playbook. Fascists destroy the economy of their nation, people become much poorer, the so-called ‘wealthy elite’ become so much richer, yet ordinary people are restricted and confined and fascists create endless upset and friction and eventually war with anyone and any country that ‘is not their friend’.  Fascists cannot see reality in anything like a clear light and do not have the enlightenment that a real education provides. Fascists have media that promotes their cause without criticism; reality, decency and truth being abandoned. Voila! … its trump.

I remember reading a couple of biographies of playwright Arthur Miller and him telling us how when younger his stomach turned to hear home after home spewing the filth from Father Coglan, inciting hatred as he walked along the street.

Couple of people have mentioned recently how nowadays we seem so ‘dumbed down’ and from several chance encounters I can only agree. Does television rot brains?

Realise too the extent of trumps showmanship, selling himself as a brand and convincing prospective users of his name/ branding (which will cost them money) this does indeed take showmanship; this perhaps goes a long way to explaining his personality. He projects  himself to sound a realistic grounded in-the-know type man and quite easily makes the other man feel a cleverer person. This is called salesmanship.

Remember, he was a ‘millionaire’ by age three, his formative years were spent away from home in a military academy, tax and regulation mean nothing to him. He is ‘brass-faced’ to an extreme, the master of quite hollow lowest denominator wisecracks.

He turns everything inside out, upside down. Every insult he hurls is most applicable to himself. He says knows the art of the deal, I disagree, he knows the art of  ‘the screw’.  Maybe when he said he was the King of Debt perhaps that was his one true statement. I cried when I heard his Inauguration Speech as if written by a gaming obsessed nihilistic inadequate thats seldom ventured from his room; yes probably as it fits Bannon. We see pics of Bannon but when he speaks he too falls down flat, like much of the fascist detritus that hangs around trump. Bannons one true remark – “Trump is a streetfighter”.

I think trump is more stage managed and rehearsed than we realise, after all the backdrop ie fake supporters to his rallies are hand selected for the camera. Look at them, they are not engaged they couldn’t care less. Something that is so phoney and so make believe would never jarr with trump, he’d ride with anything that promotes him. I also think trump feeds off a constant flow of twisted croneyism, he cannot take this deliberate downward path without being coached and mentored, its all a voice of twisted old white men; of on-the-make prototypical fascists. Hence his rising early, tweets, phone calls to like-minded all before coming down at 11 to play a little in the Oval Office.

The poor, the ordinary and the anxious do not matter to trump, he is blind to them.

A president should also be the good shepherd.

We find he is remote from his own Intelligence material, after all its to a depth ie several sentences and multi-strand concepts that he has no patience for, it is from actually intelligent people, professionals…

postscript … this week bbc r4 ran a story on the pm programme from trumps ghost writer for ‘The Art of the Deal’ Tony Schwartz. His warning was stark. First vid is before election and is frightening enough ….



So thats where the 12 years came from ….

I gained a chance conversation Sunday and the expression ’12 years’ was mentioned, I assumed she meant something like Sam Caranas prediction in that …  we have a decade left before annihilation, but in fact tootling on the web its a quote from the whacky, so very retro outdated … like … asshole useless IPCC bods.

Twelve years to act as in the quote ….

“there are just 12 years left to act to keep global warming to a maximum of 1.5 degrees Celsius.”

To act … that is too late, treacherously too late.

This is so off target … like … silly beyond belief. As posted previously Prof Peter Wadhams must be sickened whilst amazed and laughing and cringing that such out of sync IPCC thinking is promoted as ‘current’.  Dear God, Sam Carana would suggest its a decade max before serious human depletion on this planet, this little ball eight inches in diameter and with a fag paper covering ie 0.001 inch a thousandths of an inch is to live breath, fuck and fantasise.

Anyone who knows me realises I’m cheesed off tonight. Reasons don’t matter but what does matter is how many ppl are ‘not up to speed’. To anyone new to this I suggest googling ‘East Siberian Ice Shelf’… this is the biggie. Better add ‘jet stream modification’ ‘loss of oceanic lower food chain’ … ‘loss of Greenland ice mass’ … hell the list needs its own page of A4.

So lets link to some other material gleaned online in the last hour, before I settle down to read …  like  … (not an e-book) one of my paper based books (of more than 2k) contained here within my chambers.

uh-oh, tiscali my ISP is messing abt, useless as usual. It often loses the server lately three times each morning and these last few weeks destroys my emails by notifying me as undeliverable via unwanted unneeded … spamhaus … to block my online activity. Be aware, spamhaus is quite nasty and often quite needless. Also, tiscali email say four years ago became un-usable so no bloody wonder its virtually abandoned by all and sundry; ailing, unusable, f’kcd… therefore I’m using a third party email provider which annoyingly is being thwarted. Who what is spamhaus and quite why they take it to be their business to disrupt my simple tiny quite clean activities ??

Oh well, back to reality …




New angles on chemtrails …

Subject: doubled-up chemtrails in one ‘track’ and aluminized skies.

We are near coastal here, lately hard to see five miles up to the chemtrail deposition layer as coastal ‘fret’ precludes. From a higher vantage point later in the day Sunday last ie 14th October 2018 revealed sporadic chem trail and specifically trails along the Pennines to the west of here ie the backbone of England. I also noticed an aircraft depositing very close to an existing track. Monday the same trick was revealed, I literally watched as another plane flew right in among an existing trail. The resulting trail was ‘solid’ in appearance and in parts separated slightly to display its two plane components. It hung around for hours, extremely bright across the sky, without even dispersing into the usual chemtrail haze. I assume overnight it morphed itself into haze.

Remember, conventional media ie tv does its best to bundle anything ‘chemtrail’ with nonsense theories, so if you are likely to mention this to anyone its usual you are ridiculed. All I do is observe, I’ve been trained to see and to think in many areas of activity, I do not run to conclusions or any ‘theories’.

All pics in the first photo group are from Sun to Tuesday 16th October 2018, not Sept as mistakenly captioned, time is short here and it will have to serve as is for now.




…. three horizontal pics second line down are after sunset Sunday 14th October 2018 my first observance of anything approaching a doubled-up; remainder are Monday teatime and illustrate the obscene ‘solid mass’ of doubled up chemtrail deposition that all evening did not appear to break up or haze ie LH second from bottom; I think I’ve been witnessing an experiment. The ‘grey/ aluminized’ sky is Tuesday 16th October 2018 4pm (all are October) as I have stupidly mis-labelled them, how do i correct? Time is short here for this faffing-on! Nothing is photo-shopped or modified in any way, I’m not that sort of photographer.

  • Sunday night some parallel chemtrails but wide-spaced.
  • Monday teatime some close to doubled but gap noticeable, then its the biggie, a dense doubled up that does not haze or disperse, shining incredibly bright.
  • Tuesday what looks to be a heavily aluminized sky, teatime.


As I add to this its now Wednesday evening, its been a consistent chemtrail activity all day, though at first this morning any activity was masked by lower cloud.  Quite obscene. For anyone to NOT take notice absolutely beggars belief. With the IPCC Report of a week ago I glanced online that geo-engineering (ie chemtrail weather modification) is indeed promoted. Therefore the ridicule I’ve sustained and a valuable friendship much soured will soon be vindicated, as I predicted I will most certainly be proven right on this matter.



Note L.H. second row from bottom, how low wind flow has dragged haze from the chemtrail, needs careful attention to see this in the pic, is feint. All above are today Wed 17th Oct 2018. Hint – click on a pic to get more details ie time and date, I’ve not bothered with captions. Also note to the left of bottom pic, a strictly defined wide band of haze dispersed from one chemtrail. Steady skies yesterday, low wind speed at high alt; this is why on a bad chemtrail morning ie chemtrails say 6 till 8am then the constant morphing and turmoil say by 9am the movement and turmoil is staggering and surely can only suggest these are not natural skies and must be taken notice of.

Frequently throughout springtime we had needless chemtrails here in north east UK, all growing plants were hindered. Curiously for a fortnight in the run up to the Royal Wedding it was a reprieve with continuous bright blue skies. Chemtrails are often / even thrown at us when its a bright blue high pressure morning, this contradicts what is natural.

To recap briefly the aluminium, barium and strontium it is thought / wondered has ….

  • created massive childhood autism on west coast USA.
  • created an aluminized landscape that burns ferociously as wildfires, witness autumn 2017 California wildfires.
  • near eliminated lower food chain ie loss of caddis fly in west USA streams and rivers, no more trout fishing.
  • diatoms essential lower food chain possibly also tied in (burning the 70% oil and gas worlds reserves from these invisible things) has ironically led to their demise. Witness Pacific seabird collapse three years ago, all flew inland, all stomachs empty … grossly under-reported.
  • Alzheimers in bees (and other insects)? Insect populations in general?
  • Organic growers report year after year of disease and much reduced yields, free-borne (not bonded) aluminium lowers a plants disease resistance and Monsanto worldwide patents all feature disease resistance to such free-borne aluminium.

postscript; what others are saying …

To discuss Global Warming …

This link below provides a lot of topics for discussion, the primary one being the IPCC falls short of providing the full picture of where we are heading with Climate Change; of falling short of what could be likely reality in the years ahead.

As I’ve always said (at least from Nov 2017 which was for the first time I switched on to Climate Change) …. the IPCC incorporates large scale carbon capture that has yet to be invented in any serious form and ignores the upcoming effect of methane in its three forms ie geological, microbial and thawing hydrates. Lets enumerate the points and note that I do agree with what Sam Carana has to say which I argue is not bias but reason, the evidence and common sense. When trump as yesterday states that the Climate Change Scientists are being ‘political’ he himself is operating at a totally political and morally unsound position. Every sane thinking person on the planet knows this, the canaries are screaming but trump and his twisted and bitter white old men of the GOP insist otherwise !!!

Let me work through to precis Sams points …

  1.  IPCC has moved the baseline (though I’ve yet to read the IPCC document) …  imagine already how much smelting, burning of coal, steam power had added carbon to the atmosphere already by 1850.
  2. IPCC erroneously applies a straight line projection for whatever lies ahead, in reality its a huge tangle of interconnected self and mutually re-inforcing feedback ever increasing feedback loops. What engineers call positive feedback ie an expotential knock-on and is an upward curve, never conforms to a straight line plot.
  3. IPCC ignores spikes, these causing the really nasty shock effects.
  4. IPCC baseline chosen to wallpaper over the worse view from any other historical baseline.
  5. IPCC playing with the stats.
  6. Anomaly as ocean temperature is at surface and land temp figs as air based figures, this Sam Carana tells us can introduce error.
  7. Method and missing data not embracing latest thinking / developments
  8. IPCC omits temp spikes of 2016 that would have as yet again increased the projected figures and are omitted.
  9. WOW … IPCC does not take into account all the real world happening now events ie snow and ice loss, albedo effect, methanes, last ten year carbon effect, aerosol effect, increased water vapour feedback, jet stream alteration, sea level rise and expansion, green plant CO2 conversion fall off, carbon from wildfires, etc etc. Each single point is so very interconnected and all exacerbate each other.  May I add loss of diatoms and plankton that are major CO2 to O converters as well as being part of ocean weather systems, losing coral reef being a symptom of a the more fundamental crash in ocean food chain, the diatoms. Its time now for a fast tracking approach to science, silly bloody clusters of cagouled junior scientists out on the ice shelf / mass is looking a bit twee; a two year peer review is too slow.
  10. IPCC seems stuck in a time bubble, looking at a carbon ‘budget’ approach when in fact carbon is a massive deficit, a carbon bankruptcy, a bankrupt carbon lifestyle that has to be fundamentally altered (which I doubt we can).
  11. Same old song, IPCC is deficient in abolishing fossil fuels.
  12. Tax or fees needed on polluters. Note the worlds obsession with cheap air travel, polluting gas guzzlers, car based lifestyle (of which I too am some way guilty). In my opinion even electric vehicles are suspect and not as green as we’d like to think.


Okay, enumerated rant over. As stated previously, I keep things brief here at this new blog of mine. Human nature being what it is, hubris, the desire for status-objects and lifestyle, recreational air travel, a meat diet … all are near insurmountable obstacles.  There would have to be unwavering catastrophe before affluent western populations realise changes must occur and of course global warming and climate change being what it is ie a cumulative self re-inforcing feedback all change would be too late.

There are three embedded vids at the bottom of Sam Caranas blog, lets listen to the first briefer version of Prof Peter Wadhams wise words (a practical Scientist, a lifelong specialist in sea ice) and pretend not to notice the tedious drawn out intro …

  • IPCC non-alarmist, soft pedalling on feedback machanisms.
  • IPCC pays no attention to potential run-away warming.
  • IPCC by not mentioning a major contributor/s its as if it doesn’t exist !
  • More of the same little sticking plasters or feelgood initiatives are no longer any good.
  • Note that even if we stopped all emmisions ie 100% … its already not sufficient to avert us to catastrophe.
  • World expert on sea ice Prof Wadhams tells us that what the IPCC says on sea ice is ‘daft’. Listen to this crap from the IPCC “An ice free summer once every hundred years”  !!!
  • To approximately quote Prof Wadhams “One would have thought that by now the IPCC would be so embarrassed by its out-dated modelling to have withdrawn that type of approach”. “Pretending the situation isn’t the way it is”.
  • Not a single well-known sea-ice researchers name on the author list from the IPCC.

Lets not forget thawing permafrost and the East Siberian iceshelf.

I’ve thought for years that a condensed print onto paper resume of such talkie vids would save time, get the point across quicker. You can name the app after me …..

It vexes me at the increasing and needless number of ever bigger SUVs and even more expensive cars that my neighbours buy; quite needless as we can hardly assume they are involved in ‘light haulage’! I assume they a) feel they need them and b) are drawn into such a value system. I’ve a neighbour that eats nothing but meat and most others that value a meal at its meat content or its closeness to an oversized burger. Others that thrill at their endless air travel, even a weekend break involves the airport or the insanity of a weekend home a thousand miles away. I’m no angel, far from it but strive to somehow do better, to keep things simple, a lighter carbon footprint and have done for years; at least my work is nearby and I’ve no need to venture more than a few miles.


bbc radio 4 news fails again ….

So, we have the latest IPCC report and the 1.5deg C is sort of like …. wha …. its like sooo YESTERDAY.

whoops I’m being monitored, slow drag take up from whatever I type, oh well as it may  …

So, listening to bbc r4 here in the UK today 9th Oct 2018 was sad, laughable and bloody annoying. So wet, so insipid following from the tougher IPCC Report to hear the invited ‘expert’ girlie person tell us we need to insulate our homes (we mostly are already) look into solar panels but mind the cost and use the bus if we can. My dear girl, and I wish to be derogatory, the necessary moves we need to make are so much harsher and unpalatable to our affluent consumer and car mobilised society  … ie a BIG reduction in red meat (forget about burgers America and everyone else) … walk or cycle to work, wash clothes less or quicker and air dry if poss, forget the SUV, cut needless roadside lighting, forget about personal consumer air travel, wrap up more and stop bitcoin mining. Think like  … great grandparents. Think ‘paper bag’ and lessen off from ultra convenience.

Maybe we should all have pedal cars, gets ya fit, but of course there would always be the swanky git with extra chrome and a personalised reg …. on his pedal car. We would have to have two and three car families, we could only get one person in!

Its quite bizarre, we hear on the news of dire climate predictions and yet the next news item laments a hardly perceptible drop in Economic Growth or wages will not rise as much as we’d like them. This mindset will only be changed when its a last minute too late backs to the wall situation. Human nature ….

It used to be said in the west that we are becoming an increasingly classless society, I find that to be totally untrue, we are as stratified as ever, from what I see theres very little interaction between the disadvantaged and those well heeled. We mingle and shop among each other but there it seems to end.

… Oh yeah and I just realised why trump is so adamant for his Border Wall, I assumed it was that he really does concur with Climate Change, then just now I’ve realised its possibly because the Israelis are wall obsessed  … n Net will have whispered in trumps ear re this method and so trump takes it all on board. The Palestinians have a right to stay on their land, to live and breath as others, they are NOT an underclass. I don’t like bully tactics. trumps idiocy is demonstrated with the move to Jeruselam for the Embassy, as usual he is a destructive, simplistic non-understanding embarrassment. The boy that can barely read and has ridden on his fathers wealth liking to thrust a stick into the hornets nest.

Perhaps theres a glimmer of hope, as always looking to score points and milk his public image perhaps he’ll amaze us all and do a complete about-turn on Climate Change, suddenly announcing that He and only He was able to see this and has come up with a great (that bloody word) idea !!

We read from the link below that the post of White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has at long last had someone appointed to lead them, Kelvin Droegemeier. That name Kelvin … how appropriate for Global Warming !! Wouldn’t be suprised if having that name of Kelvin was the reason subliminal or not for being chosen? No, trump wouldn’t know the connection. What will he do, I can’t see what he can do in the face of arrogant ignoramuses.

I see said the blind man …

… sort of applicable, this Bloomberg news story of today tells us of tiny rogue chips disguised as something else from Chinese factories to infiltrate western servers, to monitor and to circumvent password protection. So is this the intelligence that motivates trump to screw up China/ USA trade?  Looks to be, as if trump might have actually hurriedly scanned an actual  memo headline whilst shouting at Pence “Get outa tha f***ing space-suit”,  likewise reason for his at first sight odd reason to accuse China of all sorts of meddling. But still his deafness to the World screaming “Its the Russians, its the Russians” is most odd, and points to only one thing.

I’ve always been a great believer in keeping things ‘in-house’. So perhaps its a case of ‘ye reap as ye shall sow’ …. like, what the hell did you expect!

Heres another link a day later…

I had begun to worry over taking at face value a news article that most certainly would aid trumps anti-China stance. Increasingly we need ‘three sources’ and ones of high calibre. The world is awash with misinformation. I read a couple of days ago that Russias military spending is down, but I wonder at the ramp-up of its web and computer activity. China has been very stupid to plant these rogue chips if the story is as told.


postscript …

Never did we think that Obama ribbing trump a few years ago at a Public Dinner (was it the Annual Press Gathering) … would have fired up trump in his destruction of all things Obama. It goes back further than that, the unwanted harping on by trump of Obamas birth certificate, as if forgetting the USA is one great melting pot. But realise also all the chatter and manouverings that occurs behind closed doors that egg-on and steer trump in his despicable journey.

Never once will you hear trump be guided by decent values, nor ask himself is this right or is it wrong.

All along and particularly with trumps abysmal Inaugration Speech very seldom can he arrive at anything constructive or from his own mind; to break up, to waste, to wreck are all that he knows. Theres truth when Bannon said ‘He’s a street-fighter’ I now see indeed he is, we read that he was close to Roy Cohn, legendary for being Roy Cohn and so its the hit ’em back fifty fold and go on the aggression that suits trumps mindset perfectly. Everything he says in fact when turned upside down is clearer to the truth; as with every insult he hurls, to himself they are most applicable.

Why is it so much can be out of view even if we are purposefully searching for background info ie aided or hindered by google? The New York Times trump and tax investigation article pub 2nd Oct 2018 was a triumph of bringing much needed background information to public gaze and seeing the measure of trump father and son. Likewise with Kavanaugh, someone so sullied, even toxic has been elevated to a position he is unworthy of. But in this trump dominated USA ‘the past’ and past misdemeanours carry no weight, gangsters are brass-faced to what should be on the historical record. This is why he rails against the Free Press and journalists and thank goodness for the likes of Sarah Bee, Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert, Bill Maher.

trumps base is far smaller than he says it is, I’m even sceptical of polls. Here in the UK the bbc r4 news woefully under-reports the extent of trumps deadly tenure, proving to be a treasure trove of bias for future students of journalism to analyse. Why is this?

Its a multi-pronged attack from trump and his sleazy behind doors whisperers, EPA stripped and gagged, needless tax giveaways to the already super wealthy, International Trade (and trust and co-operation) in tatters, his siding with Dictators, mayhem in Iran the Middle East, siding with Israel, denigration of the Palestinians, back to coal, back to fracking, his hurt of women of people of colour … etc etc etc. All are distasteful, regressive, damaging. Old white bigots rule the earth ???

The madness of king trump will surely be revealed as the future unfolds, everything for the ordinary citizen cut, closed or curtailed, their rights or position diminished, environmental and working conditions and housing localities degraded, people becoming tribal in their fixedness of viewpoint, polarisation of class; meanwhile Fox telling everyone repeatedly and endlessly how well the ‘Great Helmsman’ is doing. The double-whammy of Climate Change and altering weather patterns (jet stream etc) coupled with trumps destruction of overseas markets for American farmers will be a sorry sight. There will be a competitiveness and fear of fellow workers, of neighbours, just like Roy Cohn would have wanted. I hope in that there will be a backlash to this dark scenario, I have faith in common sense but meanwhile trump has breathing space, a bubble to operate in.


trump and his multi-pronged attack …..

Realise too that in this topsy turvy world of trump he fully realises the realities of Climate Change, this is why he is so adamant for a needlessly heightened and strengthened Border Wall with Mexico when already theres sufficient wall for all practical purposes.


Thank God… for newspaper journalists!

Its called the Free Press. Therefore the fake known as trump must really hate them. And its only trump that is fake, as always the insults he hurls are most applicable to himself, fake, disgraceful, failing. I think now we can assume inside the WH his nibs is going bonkers. High time too! This story will develop quickly so lets state its midday Wednesday UK time as I type the finishing touches.

This explains why trump was so antagonistic toward the Press, he knew only they could bring him down or at least connect a whole lot of dots (ie off the record contributions and nods to investigative direction) that would allow the Judiciary sufficient momentum to forge ahead with certainty and speed. Perhaps this will allow individuals and the world to get on with its business;  theres work to be done, climate change etc.

A Free Press can be modern day detectives, especially needed when present day USA is bludgeoned into confusion and whiplash from a wannabe dictator, a rolled up morph of something like Mao, Stalin or a cocksure gangster. As in my last post and the shocking performance yesterday of trumps press call in the Rose Garden its obvious now that the persona trump expresses for the camera is not quite the real man. This has bugged me for a long time, its a sham, a facade, he’s acting the fool. This brand new New York Times journalism is blistering hot, not only is trump as good as finished at the White House he is very obviously facing jail. He looks as he is, over-priveliged, not the successful, most certainly not the self-made man as the fool dogwalker wanted to impress upon me a couple of weeks ago from her dreadful acceptance of Fox nonsense. Thank God there are independent free-thinking people that will not accept what is served up to them as obfuscation and fakery and false certainties.


The gold itself

CNN overview …

Thank God for the monumental investigative effort and the burrowing involved into the paper trail to brought this to light. Proving what many thought already. This represents a lot of hard work.

Everything now falls into place, as the NYT reveals, even as literally ‘a baby’ he is being rewarded renumeration from his dads companies and therefore throughout his life has established a web of interconnected businesses that feed and profit and/or loss from one another as minimisation of tax requirements determine, invoices shuffling around to squeeze to the absolute minimum any tax liability, thats where his skills lie;  therefore he never really needed to be hands on in the sense of developing a deeper technical skill or knowledge.  In a way bizarrely I did have a twinge of sympathy for his dad in that a lifetime of activity results in the mere dispersal of his empire to siblings, yet all along what is it but nothing other than assets and a means of making money; assets that need to be wound up on death and are one form or another a quantity of dollars numerical. And it appears to be a lifetime of hoodwinking and evasion yes, most certainly a dynamic accumulative business,  but at the same looking to evade taxes on profit and transfer of assets to children.   Quite ironic, I’ve neighbours that twenty months ago as two little bright bunnies were pleased to announce to me that  “We think trump is good for America” being Fox devotees and now the man himself he too thinks he can avoid taxes …  ehm, sorry, nope, death and taxes etc as the old saying goes. How else can this country run

Can you hear that distant clanging? The sound of hammer upon anvil?  Its the jailer, re-forging donald trumps age-old manacles to hold those teeny hands in place.



Rose Garden Monday, heres trump performing as an absolute fool and being grossly offensive which of course comes so easily to him, more being himself I think than usual… I feel so sorry for journalists having to deal and cope with this nastiness from a so-called ‘President’. I can’t help but feel something has happened, we are on another level of Press hatred, maybe he got word this NYT material was set to be released. It will be both laughable and chilling to see Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempting to defend against any of this. Anyway, well done Cecilia Vega, composed and so professional in the face if idiocy. trump says he doesn’t drink, but at many of his performances I’d say he certainly is under the influence of something, the slurring, the drone and monotonous thankfully not too often reading from an auto-cue; thats of course why he likes to go off script and play the chummy bar-room raconteur, making a friend or hoping to of everyone present.

Why doesn’t one of the assembled hangers-on behind him just go up to him and state plainly this is NOT acceptable attitude or behaviour, EVERYONE is embarrased. How can Ivanka explain this one away, hitching a free ride on her ’empowerment’ for women?  How long can the assembled sycophants ride along with this in-the-gutter so-called ‘President’?  President of nothing, President of Ignorance and Idiocy and Greed. Egging America along by appealing to the least educated.  The expansive NYT article first linked to above explains so much of trumps manner and attitude, his mirrors and play-acting, an attitude of getting away with anything.



Looking at this footage I cringe, cannot but help being forcefully reminded of the infamous Mark Gertler painting, something also applicable when I was typing my previous post on the same subject.


Mark Gertler, a famous painting. Read about what it represents elsewhere.


postscript … its from earlier this year but heres a worthwhile overview of trump and Russia …
