What is ‘greatness’ ….

It so bugs me near half of America voted for trump, something I would have thought never possible, considering trump blindness to the struggle of ordinary people, to catastrophic climate change, to the need for intelligent and considerate International Relations, to the humane handling of the needy and homeless, the list is endless. Imagine, trump the Great Helmsman steering us through the turbulent rapids of life as what was the leader of the Free World !

With trump the analogy with The Great Helmsman himself Mao is quite uncanny, both utterly self obsessed, both utterly impractical and remote from real life. Living in an unhinged fantasy, all brand all ‘image’.

Theres nothing I’m saying here I haven’t said before, the absurd roller coaster of endless hirings and firings, the total lack of listening and learning from experts, all these were also the flaws of Mao. Once he is extracted from the White House it would be good and proper for him to be tried at The Hague for crimes against humanity, perfectly in order as the two parallel counts of climate change denial and covid 19 are denial and mismanagement on a catastrophic scale, a wilful absurd mindset from a two-bit fool propelled into public notice by excess wealth, a crummy reality tv show (looking back so VERY STAGED and PHONEY) .. and a perfect actor as a useful mouthpiece for his Masters. I also think we can draw another parallel with Mao, Russia was quite happy to see China make an utter fool of itself with the useless cruel years of The Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution and another analogy likewise with the use of slogans.

So why is near half of America still seemingly clinging to the idea of trump and his carousel of installed yes-men and family members? The nightly lies?

It baffles, bewilders and saddens me to see grown people cling to a slogan, as if make America great (again) can stand any scrutiny … as if what period you would wish to go back to other than the present … the 1930’s ?? It also baffles me trump on the face of it gives China such a hard time, yet ‘Business America’ has ridden on a wave of low cost imported goods from China that have created incredulous profit margins and incredible $$££ profit.

That word ‘great’ grates upon me … a great idea? a great time? a great performer? … the poet Ezra Pound said “Great is a Victorian word but I wouldn’t want to be without it”. Yes, what indeed does it actually mean?

A great blunder !

I think its more like A Great Nightmare under the days of Mao, oops sorry, I mean trump.

trump wastes our time …

… creepy vacuous self-centred windbag known as trump wastes our time. This is a late 1940’s roll-up your sleeves occasion ie climate change with masses of rebuilding / realignment to be done and yet we have some numskull wannabe ie trump with his hollow wannabe croning droning nonsense always every day wanting to dominate the news cycle. Clever trump, he’s walked into a self aggrandisement spectacular, a real-time tv love-fest that he would hope is always centred upon himself.

trump wastes our time, there are things to be done, many things. Time to leave him behind and get on with the real world.

I am vexed, this nonsense needs to stop, time is running out.

 

Trump is a clown.
This is the swamp ie trump… a total fake that cannot even read !

 

postscript: Look AT THAT gruff expression, whats he trying to do; look as if the toughest gun in town? We can guess it takes an hour for hair and make-up every day before he makes his entrance. My heart bleeds for whoever has to pick up the Administrative, Operational and Fiscal mess once and finally the trumps are banished from the White House. People clamour for his tax records, I particularly would like to see his School Records, these in themselves would illustrate trump unsuitability to Office.  I knew someone like trump when at school, he was in the slow class but boy-o-boy could he fantasise and spin a lie, an absolute and total b/s’er.

This is what an uneducable self-centred disruptive schoolboy set to inherit great wealth and thinking themselves above any law or sense of knowledge, service or regard and respect of ‘ornery folk really looks like.

trump: a dogs dinner of nothing …

I’d like to think it was ‘nothing’ but contrary to his outward dumbed down ‘tv’ persona trump can indeed do ‘thinking’ … nasty thinking too.

Theres lots of others too that aid trump in his thinking, both on and off payroll. Hence the value of Mar-a-Lago for such covert lobbying.

There are two reasons for trumps visit, high quality footage of a prestige event and to circle around our camp in the desire to dump USA agricultural produce that falls way below our standards of husbandry and welfare. The lies and fog of obscuration from trump- KAC- Huckabee Sanders etc are endless, trump telling us yesterday that his regime has the cleanest air and water, the highest climate standards. Akin to saying ‘black is white; up is down, left is right’ … dictums I remember are available from George Orwell eighty years ago, how prescient!

Listen to trump on audio without camera footage, its the same old endless vacuous ‘fill a minute’ audio that gets rolled out for any and every occasion. So maybe its a good idea we have him on our shores and can make him ‘stay put’ for a few minutes to listen to something from the real world, something from people that he ordinarily would never hear and how so very far removed from his con-man low IQ pretence and travelling all enveloping sycophantic entourage.

I expect great things from our Queen, Prince Charles, Theresa May in the prodding of his bubble of self-agrandising ignorance.

trump fears climate change …

… trump very much fears climate change and wishes to act quickly, hence his endless stuck in a groove tirade re the bloody wall. We all know he thinks the opposite of what he says, ie he couldn’t care less about drugs or drug infested neighbourhoods;  as if this whatsoever impinged upon rich-boy donnie! He knows climate change will drive millions towards the border and so wishes to bootstrap yet even more ‘wall’ where already sufficient wall exists.

Or perhaps its not the wall itself that he so desires but the ‘other measures’ he could wish to enforce in the future; donald trump does more ‘thinking’ that we give him credit for and gets to hear conversations most unsavoury.

Theres enough wall already…. djt is ott !!!

Years ago Derek and Clive inhabited their own micro-world, from what i see of trump and his deconstructed / constructed artifice at the White House Derek and Clive would function better than the sham called the trump administration. He wastes peoples time, he hoodwinks, cons; blethers nonsense off the cuff to please his audience,  be warned he can be viewed as low brow appealing to gut instinct among the non-intellectual or downright horny handed unthinking… but his underestimation of ordinary folk will be his downfall. trumps rise has rested on tv, its entering every home, its providing ‘what ppl want’, gloss, facade, the soundbite, the image – ask Ivanka.  Eventually mismanagement will filter through to economic performance and adverse market news, then he will be cursed and rendered toxic. Its hard to imagine anyone so self-delusional as donald j trump ….. I deny him upper case. Think of his creditors …

donald trump proves the value of education, effort and experience.

The latest folly of cancelling engagement and adherence to the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty proves exactly my point … trump lives in an early 1950’s b&w for tv western saga/ shootout/ serialised drama.

depth = 0

ability = 0

prospects ie avoiding multiple bankrupties = 0

trump seriously is mal-aligned, disjointed, peculier and needs removed ASAP.

Note in the above the shocking rise in CO2 emissions since 1990 ie from 22 to 36 Gt a year.

One of the most repulsive and revealing images I’ve seen is donald trump acting the clown in his miners hat. Note the vetted audience behind him, that strangely seem so disinterested, out of step with proceedings as if not listening. He knows fine well climate change is on the way, building/ reinforcing  the already existing wall to stop mass migration from the south, massive tax handbacks to the filthy rich for whats ahead, installing arch-denier Pruitt, ramping up the military, disowning the poor and the ordinary.

Another angle … telling us that fracking leaks huge amounts of methane (20-120 times more powerful than CO2 for climate change acceleration)  … http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/carbon-emissions-flat_us_59ee1580e4b0958c4683a105

Here Pruitt ensures Industry controls Climate Boards at the EPA, lots of back slapping there !!  They’ve won their cake and can eat it !!  http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/epa-advisory-boards_us_59f8d140e4b046017faf692b

Looking at the median curve to my mind 2018 looks set to be a worse year for climate events than 2017 which on the curve was a significant dip from the upward trend of climate warming.

Heres a quote from the start of that last article AND IT UTTERLY STINKS …

The Environmental Protection Agency has banned scientists who receive funding from the agency from serving on its scientific advisory boards, in an unprecedented move that critics say gives favor to industry-friendly advisers.

At a Tuesday afternoon event rolling out the new policy, Administrator Scott Pruitt invoked a biblical tale from the book of Joshua, in which the pagans are instructed to “choose this day whom you will serve,” either God or the “gods of your fathers.”

“As it relates to grants from this agency, you’re going to have to choose,” said Pruitt, who described the new rule as a way of ensuring “there’s integrity in the process and that the scientists that are advising us are doing so without any kind of appearance of conflict.”
