Thinking is an ongoing thing …

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.

What prompted me to write this post is this bizarre piece from the bbc …. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-47698811

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.

To inject some ‘thinking’ into this post, to help join up the many crappy little dots called the trump Administration and all the dirty connections lets read a critique to the situation so far ….. https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/2663585/posts/2219372963

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.

I could cry !

AOC knows her business, knows to get at the facts that matter for this brief period Cohen is in the limelight. Names spoken clearly in response must be called, now no-one can wriggle out of this matter. Well done Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

She is bright, cares for and knows the ordinary citizen and looks to be waaaaaay above the stench called ‘trump Island’ ….

She has a job of work to be done and it shall be done! How different from djt….

 

 

I could say trump has skills better suited to being an Insurance Salesman, but i do not wish to insult insurance salesmen.

trumps latest dogs dinner of a mess in Hanoi brings nothing but sighs from the sight of glaring incompetence ….. wasted food too!

As half of the world starves this empty shell of a pretendy president screws up yet again. I hope Ivanka and Jared would be able to read my words, as probably a million  other bloggers say the same thing …. anything ‘trump’ is contaminated, retrograde and needs to be put away from being able to corrupt, slow down, or generally malfunction. Yet even still the UK BBC radio 4 news tries to defend him, his entrenched Republicans quite strangely still try to defend him; now quite unjustifiable considering at the umpteenth time we can see how hopeless he really is.

I read a quote yesterday from his (yes obviously) ghost written ‘Art of the Deal’ that wonder-boy donald had read hundreds of books on China !!   I reckon the answer is more like ‘zero’ books on China.

‘trump syndrome’ seems more like a modern day plague where wannabes cite achievements, knowledge, even degrees that actually do not exist. Or recount and relay past activities bathed in an unreal golden light of superior abilities. As if BS’ing sufficiently will make it real! I’ve realised now to go for the jugular … insist on seeing their portfolio, their personal collection of books, amassed study material, project work, their workdesk. Without proof – pooof! – its all made up.

 

postscript: the mess, expense and utter pointlessness of the Hanoi trip for trump is on reflection a Godsend in showing the shallowness and the uselessness of the man.  Utterly blind to the machinery and expertise of professional diplomats and negotiators. I note Mr Pastry, oops sorry Bolton was nowhere to be seen. An object lesson in how not to conduct Foreign Affairs and a considerable win for KJN and hopefully a few steps nearer to being rid of trump and getting back to a more truthful competent Administration. No more ‘needless family members’ …..

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.

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

 

 

 

 

As Orwell predicted language is a major tool of oppression.

trump had  ‘quality time’ ….. alone with K J-un.

What did they talk about? It must have been excruciating for K J-un to hear via translation trumps usual garbage talk, “People are saying, I’ve heard good things, soon we, amazing fantastic, he’s a great guy a really great guy” etc etc  …. theres only so many minutes this junk can fill the space. And it ended up as surveying for condos and what a great beach that is, I’ve seen those beaches  …

I’ve always maintained all schoolkids need the old Roman subject of Rhetoric, 2k years old but more vital than ever. Even modern day speech writers go back to and are very aware of what the original masters could do with words. But nowadays words are being used to dumb down to such an extent its gone through the floor. Fox News for instance in some households (many in fact) would be intolerable yet still for those that like to hear that sort of thing, to reinforce their viewpoint it is allowed to squawk.

People seem unable to really see through to the facts, even bbc r4 news is riddled with bias and can spout things that are actually incorrect, its a regular occurrence particularly in its seeming endless refusal to paint trump in his true colours, as to how bad he actually is. His chaos even a year ago was clearly visible as evil.

He needs to be booed, there needs to audible protest at every turn, every appearance.

Theres a term ‘semantics’ ie the meaning and relationship of words and boy-o-boy we increasingly need this tool of criticism to get a handle on what is ACTUALLY happening in the USA. As many people say ie Noam Chomsky others and this link below we must get past trumps endless churn and chaos and see the real dismantling and greed that is running riot in presentday POTUS 45 USA. I try to keep these posts brief and hope the main effort of any passerby is to read or listen to the link yet for example the present separation of children from parents at the US Border is indeed cruel. The last time this happened was with Japanese residents in the USA eighty years ago and as everyone realises was the darkest stain in the history of 20C America …and trump is repeating it. Seldom I am coarse myself but he acts the blind tyrant at G7 then flies to K J-un for a butt kissing session, later wishing ‘his people’ sat up to attention when HE spoke.

trump is …

coarse,

unthinking

knows nothing from history

refuses to face the truth in anything

mangles the spoken word till it is worthless

total anti-democracy yet speaks of a fictitious populace he wishes to ‘help’

a con man

and is riding the American people unashamedly.

The above actually fit precisely both Hitler and Stalin,  Mao I concede was well read but nonetheless twisted presentday facts and procedure to his own inept and un-needed manufactured fantasy; ignoring practical experience, hard won methods and practices. Mao in fact being one of the most impractical men to walk the earth. Yes, a brain malfunction/inverting handicap that is shared with trump. As if an advanced form of early teen contrariness.

With so much so-called ‘college education’ of the general population how and why is trump able to get away with this ???

Heres a worthwhile read to try and get some light and reasoned thinking focused onto the present day trumpian nightmare … but it needs action, its a cliche but words are not enough. And just thinking aloud, why did Keith Olbermann bow out all uncharacteristically smiles and job done … when in fact theres worse to come??
