… 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.
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 …
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.
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.
NAST NASTY donald j trump who revels in cruelty, a toxic brew of ignorance and callous disregard. Theres lots of dirty over-moneyed numskulls behind him, I shudder to think what conversations occur behind closed doors. And yet the likes of Pence a ‘so-called’ Christian is of such low morals he tags along for the ride, his only chance to feel power on his lips. A pun for Pence … very definitely small change.
I think we need to brush up on our history, how dangerous it is to think the little people the ordinary can be bullied and herded along and we needn’t take notice, to not help them; as much like trump delights in wielding the power of Presidential Office toward a helpless better life seeking refugee we need to regard their feelings and consider kindly what it is they would prefer.
trump the utter fascist, the liar and trouble maker fantasist that he is needs to be recognised for what it is. trump is hellbent on creating imbalance and disharmony; ignorance developed to an artform, as artless as it is; very much the schoolboy bully / thug.
The skilfull gradation of his onslaught is indeed very clever, you cannot say ‘moron’ or idiot because he in his horrible trumpian way is very clever, a nastiness gone crazy, thrown to its limit. trump is inded dangerous, his deliberate denigration and assault on the Free Press, his courting of dictators and to promote all that insults developed society.
These people below were uncertain, bewildered and whimsically excused every insult and deprivation that was pushed onto them until it was too late. No-one should be forced to do anything in this world that they do not willingly desire.
Note the old woman above, an image that could be from eighty or eight hundred years ago.
How sad to see the present state of the Mueller report ie Tuesday 26th March 2019.
trump most certainly in his outward at least low brow fashion most definitely will insist all thinking upon the matter is now closed. To shut down any intellectual or plain basic common sense enquiry to the trump mind is now dead and finished. How sad.
Wow, some sort of collective lobotomy must certainly have occurred in the bbc news room to issue such biased unthinking nonsense. I will say in bbc defence their evening radio programme ‘The World Tonight’ 10pm r4 generally has more bite to it, closer to some critical thinking.
We also read this morning that a billion dollars is going via a military conduit for the needless wall under completely needless and mis-applied Emergency Powers. Theres already sufficient wall in all the places that matter, ‘the wall’ to trump is merely a hellbent dogma spewed at rallies to whip the crowd up and give ’em something to think about meantime. Remember his backdrop of rally attendees are handpicked for the camera, the man in the hard hat etc all stereotypes and recently once he had shouted ‘bullshit’ to the crowd he triggered a pre-arranged chant of ‘USA USA USA’ etc. Its all a con, all fakery, something he excells in, stage managed like a tv reality show, one must admit possibly the most qualified in the country to do so.
trumps wall is totally needless, merely an exercise in human misery (and impending climate change which he will not openly admit) ….. to aid protect the excessively wealthy when everything ‘goes wrong’ for the ordinary person. When trump says he’s going to get ‘the mexicans’ to pay for the wall he really means the taxpayer. This is plain and simple trumps flip-flop reversal in so many instances. He calls the media fake when he himself is exercising fakery on a Grand Scale!
Now that Muellers Report is proving a watered down version of what most people had hoped for trump feels vindicated and emboldened for further new levels of craziness, incompetence and affront to decency and good sense. To push the unspoken agenda of his bigotted cohorts themselves mostly pickled in excessive wealth and utterly remote from ordinary peoples aspirations, hopes and fears.
Lets do some more ‘thinking’ …. this man Robert Reich can aid evaluation of how nasty and hopeless trump really is. He’ll say anything to win praise, to gain support at that instant. Maybe hopeless isn’t the right word, more like ‘say anything at the time to protect his position’…. I had a mother like that and maybe thats why i hate such underhand deceit.
trump cares nothing for the ordinary person, for education, medical assistance or basic priveliges or rights for the ordinary general population. All are signs of totalitarianism / Fascism. His vacuous and quite useless promises re coal are hopelessly out of date, of bringing back jobs again hopelessly out of date and his denigration of for instance China quite obscene considering how much profit the West makes from importing goods from China. trump will bankrupt America much as he has done with his own inherited wealth. trump will say anything for a five second soundbite.
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.
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.
… has only re-appointed 11 out of its 68 scientists. To use the word of the Great Orange Fool himself ie the person laughingly referred to as POTUS 45 (and as usual using a derogatory term of his which is most applicable to himself) … SAD.
Whilst trump in his evil intent, in his churn creates a smokescreen, he obscures the massive damage and the dismantling that chunters on regardless; previous good work, research, knowledge, experience quickly unravelling, all these terms of course being anathema to the Fool in the White House. With Climate Change we need more scientists, not less. Putin is very clever, he’s doing more than bombs and armies ever could.
trump realises in this soundbite world any of his rambling near incoherent vacuous performances known as a speech will be filtered and presented as the best one-liner, his slurring, his inability to read an auto-cue, his pathetic delivery, all are put aside as the self re-inforcing ‘I’ve got it nailed’ soundbite echoes round the world. He is a mockery, all nations just hope he can be contained and doesn’t do ‘anything too bad’. Sounds much like a wayward and handicapped teenager. I intend no insult to mentally handicapped people. He is wasting valuable time and is mocking the adults in the room, mocking the world.
trumps integrity we are assured can be checked with Fox presenter Sean Hannity, trump tells us so!
Who is it that sits there at night with their cans gawking at the screen “Go for it Don”, how sad their lives must be, to be bypassed. This demonstrates the greater effort needed at education and that as I’ve said many times rhetoric is a subject sadly missed. As a civilisation we are going backwards, vast pools of semi-literate are hooked on their drip feed of i-phone, they’ll never assimilate or remember a fraction of what pre-digital youngsters were expected to. We are creating a sub-class of human, of those kids whose parents take no notice of how much of their lives are consumed with their devices.
Here below its hard to find recent material on this subject, but why?
We can assume the contraption known as trump ‘delivers the goods’ behind closed doors, does the hard hitting cut to the quick clever talk and gives his close at hand supporters what they like to hear, which I can guarantee is not …. goodwill, compassion, making better, caring or assisting. So the deal is done trump can then step outside to the Press or his rally and like a wind up toy deliver his usual junk. So I can assume the performance given on camera is not the full truth, not the whole man. This figures perfectly, anecdotal evidence of his use of language on his second rate reality tv activities backs this up.
What is the real trump?
postscript … I’m sickened at trumps performace in belittling valid questions from journalists, read the last of the links above. How slimey, how callous and hurtful and all the smug white fools behind him, no better than a group of drunken teenagers from decades past. This is pertinent, trumps angle on the Kavanaugh performance thirty years ago to his mind is that his misdemeanour is irrelevant, not once will it ever occur to him WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG ….
Further postscript … lets try some other search terms, to find out what ex-EPA scientists are talking about and luckily as with my new style format here, links generally these days are quickly read.
On bbc radio news just now we hear … that the unfathomable trump has pulled funding to aid Palestinians ie education, health, welfare. Its all in the article, the upside down clownish world of a person that should certainly not be anywhere near Governmental power or policy ….
