More trump junk…

trump in any other position would v soon be bypassed, be discarded, couldn’t occupy the role of janitor ( my apologies to all hardworking janitorial operatives) and note I deny trump upper case.

As I’ve said for years the insults that trump throws around are most pertinent to himself (the accusatory finger plumb 180 deg in the wrong direction) trump himself most definitely being low energy, fake, swamp, lies.

trump is a gold plated example of too much wealth going badly wrong, spoilt from minute one; my own father would have used the term ‘spoilt’ and increasingly I can see that this can indeed engender a lazy, misguided inept and talentless individual. I’ve seen other examples of this lately but thats my own private affair but certainly has me more than usual focused on the term ‘spoilt’. A character spoilt, a development spoilt, no effort engendered, totally lazy both mentally and physically. What a curse money can be and in trumps case a curse on America.

trumps grandfather fed off gold prospectors and now trump feeds off America.

trump apparently has little idea if any of the meaning of words, of their potential weight, potential to do good or bad, the potential constructive purpose of dialogue, their value. He loves the tv screen, witness Netanyahu using a doctored vid to turn trump against the Palestinians and cut aid ( a signature move this, cut aid to the already struggling, hell …. he’s even massively cut aid to Americans). His more recent admissions of binge watching Fox clearly demonstrate trump susceptibility to anything on a screen and as reported yesterday in interview takes it all in like a sponge, spoilt boy Donny just does just not ‘see’ is unable to exercise any critical thought, other than bigotry and preconclusions. He stakes his position in the dirt, draws a circle with his foot and claims this is where I stand. And remember this is the nut with the nuclear codes.

Notice how both trump and Regan were/are actors, to quote Noam Chomsky “Were handed a script and read from it” though I realise here I’m loose with the facts, trump stumbles with reading, again as my Dad would have said “Never learnt his alphabet”.

Lets use our brains …

Propaganda to the masses and bad thinking at the top are rife, epidemic. Some examples…

  • When trump tweets realise its not just his finger on the keyboard but in fact that little keyboard is a giga-powered propaganda machine with open input from any of his crooked and twisted lackeys and I include Ivanka and particularly Jared in this; the little keyboard of his phone (or more likely an office computer logged into trumps twitter feed) the most powerful meat grinder (unfortunately) in the world. Meat grinder in that trump and cohorts will quite happily sacrifice the poor and less fortunate to get past this lockdown, to mangle the truth at every convenience to trump and his constant revision of what he said the day before. At every turn, so many times trump likes to sacrifice the poor and helpless, think travel bans think border wall, all needless.
  • trump is the wrong man at the wrong time in the wrong position at least to all God fearing sane and decent citizens, yet to Putin trump is the right man in the right place at the right time, an unprecedented opportunity for exploitation. Of course trump is being massively exploited, I’m sure in my mind there is huge amounts of Russian money chanelled through trump activities, trump depends and needs this to survive as no American Bank will suffer him and remember the disgusting lovefest of trump and Putin at Helsinki; two hours behind closed doors, no American witnesses and no notes, trump emerging visibly shaken. This is sickening, trump indeed is skewered on Putins arm as some hapless dumb ventriloquists doll. Note trumps endless insistence that Russia did not meddle in the elections no matter the clamouring of US citizens at all levels, that Russia is his friend, that Russians have been invited and freely entered the Oval Office.
  • Everything trump issues as an insult or failing is in fact most applicable to himself;  everything from trump is a reversal of the truth and time-won practical experience, of established institutions, of knowledge and scientific data ie climate change, the environment, sleazy tax handouts to cronies, international relations, the respect to other religions and ways of life etc etc. He courts dictators. When he points the accusatory finger “Fake news” he in fact is the only fake in the room; shouldn’t therefore everyone point back silently, good move I think and we are quite entitled to do so however the irony would be that trump would assume the accusatory finger to be in fact a fascist salute and therefore an adulation!! As usual, with trump we are in a room full of mirrors. Personally I would also encourage public booing to somehow break the bubble of the would-be fascist Emperor and his hangers on after all he is so incredibly thin-skinned.
  • trumps obsession and over-repeated slogan “Drain the swamp” is now utterly most applicable to himself, no great swamp existed pre-trump but now boy-o-boy trump has created his very own sickening swamp by any standards. Note handler Mnuchin always standing by rooting for Big Money, likewise Pence to ensure a fundamentalist, regressive and backward doctrine are included, to be promoted at all times.
  • Truth is cooked up each day according to the whim or shallow fancy of trump, as cooked up as him unfathomable tax returns or unknown educational attainment, both we assume not worth the paper they are written on if only anyone could ever find them.
  • Mining the moon … one couldn’t make this up! This really is an exercise of sustainable living in hostile conditions, which has been foreseeable for the last couple of years, such as the dreaded impending methane release and subsequent chaos of interconnected climate feedback loops running out of control from the efficiency / efficacy of surging methane levels. Its not CO2 that will kill us but the much more damaging (say x120 fold) and much faster acting methane release in its three forms ie microbial from thawing permafrost, methane deposits trapped within the strata capped and held in place by permafrost and probably worst of all thawing subsea hydrates for instance the East Siberian Ice Shelf. These are huge areas, far bigger any one of them than Europe.
  • My opinion is that there is a limit to the gullibility of trumps so-called voter base, like most things of his its smaller than he says; soon trump fans will tire of the trump spiel and media hogging, even the most unthinking zombie-like adorer of the trump stance must surely quite soon see the light, the obscuring fakery of trump.
  • Has anyone realised the huge places recently constructed to die and equipped with respirators, a life of lockdowns, the end of personal freedom as of cv-19 are exactly what we will need when climate change kicks in hard? Which it will, the impending catastrophic increase of methane being the real ‘biggie’.
  • From my UK standpoint and I think near universal is insufficient regard taken with care and health workers, these special people need special treatment in safer distancing from family members and public, to be cordoned off in effect. The PPE scandal will not go away, neither the scandal of care home deaths being kept out of the cov-19 death toll. The early hours health and care worker shopping hour needs to be redefined as a means of increasing bio-security, so far no-one is taking this angle seriously enough. This would allow economies to loosen up and get a few more contributors working again. Issuing all care workers with a badge is exactly what one would have decided is the first step in identifying such workers and hey presto was announced a fortnight ago. Funny how this can be redefined as a means to separate out care and health workers from the general population, which I think would be utterly stupid not to do so, yet no-one specifically mentions this. this in some ways silly lockdown needs to be engineered more intelligently.
  • In essence we need to be more aware to separate the health and care workers from the rest of the general population, the latest tragic news of two sisters, both care workers to die reinforces the need to do this.
  • Quite seriously, why has no-one drawn attention to the lunacy of having a beard at this time, I would imagine a virus catcher par-excellence!

 

Postscript, nice to hear my words echoed and the exact words indeed as utilised by Polly Toynbee a few hours after I wrote them, great minds think alike!  Likewise two days later interesting to hear Nick on bbc r4 this morning  echoeing my particular sentiment that nice sounding words are useless when in fact in reality things don’t happen or the PPE isn’t delivered and the cv-19 testing just is not happening as they portray. I would term this a disjoint of delivery. The latest disaster is a recall for botched cv-19 testing, also the NHS and Government seeming to be ignoring the offers of PPE manufacturing and lab testing capacity in the UK. One couldn’t make this up!

Heres Amy Goodman with Noam Chomski …

 

As Noam Chomsky tells us trump is indeed v v clever.

Scandals, incompetence, lack of vision.

It baffles me how short sighted the bods at the top really are, I mean the UK Government. BBC r4 radio news this morning again carries mention that highly qualified ultra-competent laboratories in Uni, research, contract testing etc are all available to ramp up cv-19 testing yet multiple contacts and phone calls from Professors and Doctors in their own field produce nothing in return from the NHS or the UK Government;  we are so woefully challenged as how this virus is being handled. I think when we view retrospectively the double scandal not using the myriad of labs available outside of the NHS (which I think possibly can often be in advance of the NHS) and the also incredulous scandal of NOT examining and collating deaths in care homes or at home to achieve more accurate data of lives claimed by the virus. Aiming to deliver a competent speech as say from the Head Boy is NOT the same as the actual hard reality of PPE in the hands of those that need it. Maybe we need a Lord Beaverbrook? The only good thing you can say is that our only resort, social distancing was pushed forward as utterly essential. But has anyone ever yet seen trump or the creepily quiet and distanced Fauci wearing simple handgloves? … scandalous!

This terrible time highlights the lag from daily pronouncement to actual on the ground delivery, such as PPE which contrary to podium pronouncements is not to hand for those at the sharp end. And I wonder if that recent Russian and Chinese PPE was delivered to those that needed it or in fact hoarded by Jared?

All care workers and those in contact with cv-19 patients need to be tested every couple of days, these are ‘hot-beds’ of infection no matter how hard the staff follow as many precautions as possible, that’s of course if they have anything near the PPE ther really need, I mean full face gear, forced ventilation head protection (ever heard anyone mention this?). Wow, as I type this we hear someone from the USA (Prof Paul Rohner sorry I missed the name bbc r4 08:46) saying exactly this idea ie to harness the Universities, to intensively test the hot beds of infection. My thoughts exactly. I also think all in healthcare, care homes etc need their own special distancing, their own family members, these people need to be treat and manouvered as the potential super-spreaders these really are … to NOT test say daily is madness.

News from across the pond and as usual presented uncritically and even as ‘normal’ of the continuing, worsening trump disaster as is typical bbc r4 news stance. At 10pm ‘The world Tonight’ at least has some ‘teeth’ and offers a clearer view, a valuable radio programme. In the old Soviet era photographs people were airbrushed out of the picture to alter history, trump does it by merely denying his previous words and actions. I had thought trump was basically a puppet but these last few days I’m more inclined to think he actually does come up with all this crap mostly from himself. At least his unpredictability is predictable, forever casting himself with hindsight as the ‘stable genius’ and reworking his message at whatever shallow whim drives him that day. We can assume now that those around him really are the dregs, Mnuchin, Miller, Kushner etc and with the White House Eunuch Pence in attendance. Even with Anthony Fauci he really does seems to have trawled for and ineffectual yes-man. These really are sick white folk. Winess jareds outburst a few days ago when questioned as to the Governments own massive stocks of PPE when America struggles …. “They are for us” …. wow yet again a DC comic adventure.

For trump to announce withdrawl of funding to the World Health Organisation is cruel indeed, hell-bent (an apt term if ever) at Trumpian disruption and bile. Witness Yemen, tragic. Its again the trump style, max disruption, max cruelty; its got trump written all over it. To be so stingy and pretend ‘he has a view on anything’ (quite laughable were it not so cruel) is all reality show smoke and mirrors, which is all trump knows apart from conman crow-barring of perceived enemies and debtors; he came from the Roy Cohn School of Charm and Grace.  Thinking about it, this is when Sean Hannity and Fox could do the nation a service and turn this monstrous Clown to a more sensible approach, come on Sean n Co …. help the Free World!

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 …

Heres good sense from Noam Chomsky, interviewed by Amy Goodman.

And heres my little cartoon, quite accurate I think.

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

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.

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]

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” !

The stupidness of where we live, the lies.

trump and his many pronged attack on decency
trump and his many pronged attack on decency, truth and a forward moving, inclusive and enlightened society…

Yup …

Lier-in-Chief installed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue indeed must assume all human beings are far beneath him. This is not conjecture, it is observable fact.

We are indeed witnessing the base layer of ‘the swamp’.

trump continues to attempt to ridicule others (note I deny him upper case) … but in fact he barefacedly denigrates himself to garbage day after day.

My utmost sympathies and ongoing strength to his victims.

trump should in fact should be tried for War Crimes once this sham debacle works its way to an honest conclusion, his refusal and downright utter refusal to incorporate ‘climate change’ into official USA scientific vocabulary is indeed a crime to Humanity.

And yet Pence the Eunuch stands in attendance.

Thank God for Free Journalism.

Shocking …

How did we get to this level ?

This is the repulsive face of racism and would be wannabe white supremacy.

What is it quite that they want ?

How did we allow such low-grade f-listers to order around the media, to dictate and be unanswerable? Of course they are unanswerable, their hidden agenda from day one has been to trash the media, the pillar of free thought; of the right to place questions and ask for accountability, to expect an honest civil reply from someone of at least average ability and decent ethics.

Fascism plain and simple.

I’ve said before, I shudder to think what crooked, skewed and bigoted conversations occur behind closed doors at the trump White House.

It is important everyone sees material such as the above, it proves the USA is in need of a big fix.

 

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

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; traitor, progenitor of evil, cretin.

… oops sorry to offend any cretin. But its true, trumps many chaos, many denials are near beyond number.

Yes you had porn stars and paid them off even though dollar bills were never requested, never required.

Yes you ring hapless contractors and offer them cents on the dollar.

Yes. you steam roller through to bypass any semblance of paying a tax bill or accurate and honest accounting.

trump is quite hapless, the kid that never did homework, sailed along on ‘front’ and brazen disregard.

My particular axe to grind tonight is his breathtakingly pathetic performance at G20 re climate change. 

As usual a few ignorant and off target remarks and trump thinks, fools himself he ‘has it in the can’. Here in the north east of England we would call him ‘donnard’. It means stupid, dim, irrelevant, thick, of catastrophic bad performance; pretty well sums up the whole White House pantomime and its sick tired entourage. His baseless tissue thin platitudes surely can not still fool anyone?

Heres a useful succinct resume as what we are up against with the idiocy of trump; remember, his only qualification is a reality tv show of low merit.

Donald Trump Said Really Stupid Things About Climate Today. Here Are 8 Facts He Ignored.

 

trump and his many pronged attack on decency and intelligence
trump and his many pronged attack on good sense, established values and decency …

 

postscript; I am most certainly critical because the nonsense we see and hear and the divisive low brow garbage Presidency of donald j trump can not be allowed to develop into mainstream and accepted as ‘normal’. It is not normal in any shape or form to wreck, sow fear and anxiety, to deride ordinary people, to alter and manipulate impressions, views, free speech ie his achingly tiresome attack of the Free Press.

The man is useless. The photo-op (as with KJU NK) is quite shallow and basically pointless, but KJU loves all of this, propelled from hardly of importance to worldwide coverage.  trump feeds the world his photo-op lead story nonsense knowing fine well theres endless appetite for his trivia, this unthinking tissue thin nonsense.  This obscures a more critical debate or recognition of the dismantling and regressive backward motion of his Presidency. Witness EPA, Universities etc being told to not mention climate change or even accept such peril is at hand. This to my mind is a War Crime.

Heres a useful precis of the idiocy and hopelessness of a latter day Wizard of Oz, puffing and grunting but actually quite hopeless …

Trump’s G20 Trip Was More Bizarre and Embarrassing Than You Thought

I suggest for instance  … Ignorance of “liberal democracy” from the above where trump is hopelessy unable to understand what is actually meant by ‘western liberal democracy’ and thinks in his usual pointless wordsalad response that it is states out west run by LBGT enthusiasts that he is required to comment upon.

soundbite soundbite soundbite  …

Vast swathes of ‘ornery folk have forgotten theres a thing called books, of knowledge, precedent, history, depth and learning.

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 …
