He says he is taking hydroxychloroquine, which must mean he probably is not.

Liar liar!

That’s Donald.

The kidder, the conner, he never stops.

Today I drew from my bookshelves ‘Elizabethan Handwriting  1500-1650’ by G E Dawson and L Kennedy-Skipton, on p.30 is a manuscript from 1611 in which the writer of the example text quotes Hermes ie

‘Three things are to be pitied and the fourth not to suffered …. a foole sett in authoritie’.

Most certainly djt has a cleverness which in effect is tantamount to evil, but as a useful cleverness …. never!!

Has anyone else noted trump looks to be wearing a corset underneath his shirt ?? I’d bet good money I’m right.

Its all tv folks, its all a con.

 

*** I may never blog for quite some time, or I possibly ever again, no buzz from it lately. Its a lonely activity and then ones efforts lost into the ether …  wrong … the web!

I’ve done enough re climate change and the downright evil trump, my own curiosities and satisfactions need to be nurtured, increasingly I am sceptical of the digital intrusion into our lives. Even a few days of learning to write a cursive script have fascinated me (ie ink and plain steel nib) and created a curiosity and a developing skill that will remain I hope for my lifetime. The web is cold and so very distant from true human interaction.

I feel so sorry for Dr Anthony Fauci…

Its obvious as a medical professional it is most frustrating to cope with a furious controlling and ineducable imbecile as d j trump. Inevitably yet more heads will roll at the instant there is disagreement from trumps tweet of the day byline which of course wavers at whim from whatever is projected from Fox News or from his immediate handlers Mnuchin, Pence or granddaddy Putin; the only good thing about all this is that trumps total inabilities are constantly revealed, trump insistently jeopardises any meaningful handling of the cv-19 epidemic, particularly for the ordinary, poor and vulnerable and the few remaining trump zombie voters must surely start to realise they have been duped.

Its my opinion these last few days here in the UK we need to look to unloosen a little the business clampdown, no-one mentions on media news that often if a business fails the owner loses everything, house, savings etc…. merely to save a few lives of mostly folk that have compromised health already. Sounds callous, but the economic disaster known as lockdown is too destructive if it is carried on as we hear yesterday for another year. Remember the spine-chilling term ‘herd immunity’ this is exactly what it means. I feel sorry for city dwellers, its no more than semi-urban here, distancing is easier. Maybe that’s why the Saxons moved to the country, away from Roman towns and cities!  The clampdown CAN be loosened a little, after all it is the medical and healthcare workers we need to specifically cordon off from public encounters, so far no-one mentions this but they will; they will have to.

Good sense in my mind would be to loosen up soon and carry into autumn, then clamp down again when the season of coughs and sneezes descends upon us. I think we are going to have to live with the fact of 1k deaths a week if that means we avoid financial disaster, economic disaster ie trading and personal disaster ie losing the roof over your head and the psychological disaster of being cooped up in low grade accommodation or abusive unpleasant partners or unruly children.  My heart bleeds for people in less fortunate circumstances, for the poor and vulnerable.

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

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!

Why is it ….

… the funny little fella Anthony Fauci has every time to be running his hands all over the presidential lectern. Its as if he’s in love with it and cannot get his hands on it enough! I’m glad I don’t have to touch it after he’s been around; but hey …. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/06/hydroxychloroquine-trump-coronavirus-drug

Here he is Dr Anthony Fauci …. a complete and utter buerk. Maybe I need to go tell him “Keep yr hands to yourself” ! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Fauci

Regardless of whether he has just washed his hands (I’m sceptical) … he should not be touching anything. Funny how certain people get to the top!

A case in point is d j trump, how did he get to the top! The Guardian quotes trump as pronouncing he has no time or truck with I quote ” But we don’t have time to go and say, ‘Gee, let’s take a couple of years and test it out, and let’s go and test with the test tubes and the laboratories.’”

‘…the test tubes and the laboratories’.

No-one has seen trumps educational record or tax record and one cannot help but wonder of whatever was presented would be trumped up, to be phoney, fake, fake as in most of what trump is associated with. trump was and is ineducable, incapable of learning very much. Dictators were often ignorant, trump is merely just another; but how sad he influences and controls to such an extent, we now read that trump has forbidden Fauci from saying anything. trumps over-bearing ignorance surely should never be tolerated. Every misdemeanour, possibly many each day further strengthen this clown.

 

Trump is a clown, an exceedingly dangerous and disruptive clown.
This is the swamp indeed ie Master Faker trump… can barely read, despises the printed word other than when it carries his own name, denies experts or science or environmental prudence, is blind to climate change.

 

 

 

 

 

Why are we so jumbled?

Why is bigotry and blindness, pretend knowledge that can hardly amount to a sentence or two allowed such free-rein dominance and real ‘grown-up’ dialogue so despised?

Has the ‘little screen’ so jumbled peoples minds that knowledge and anything other than a few dozen words is beyond most people? Or perhaps more accurately shoddy tenth-rate no, zero-rate leadership glove puppet trump in the White House and space boy Pence who also doesn’t ‘believe’ in science are twitching and pronouncing on things they have utterly no idea about. Its all about the sound bite my dears, to dominate the news cyle excluding fair arguament and grown-up open minded and informed dialogue.

How can things have got this bad?

Looks like Lewis Carrol wrote the script.

Witness endless destruction of carefully built EPA safeguards and protections, a trillion handed back to the already super-rich, hatred and bigotry fuelled and stoked to a desire to be back in the 1930’s, the modest, the Mexican, the Moslem all shoved to the back of the queue, families crow-barred apart and deported. Remember, the 1930’s to people like trump would have meant ‘business opportunities’ as we imagine them cruising in their chauffer driven limos. trump finds war quite appealing, anyone who has ever been in it or suffered its effects will be screaming that war should not ever happen again. trump is deaf to this.

Once trump mis-management, inertia and sheer ignorance bite home I fear the USA will be harder hit than anyone in the coming recession.

Never trust anyone with a funny haircut, nor parades barrel chested, magesterially and with pomp with silly over-applied tv makeup for the next op ….. nor revels so obscenely in his ‘me-focused’ rallies.  Remind you of anyone?
