Trump Then Boris

It never fails to amuse the blogmaster when following international news- as his his wont[- to wonder how two buffoons were able to attain the heights of political office in their respective lands. Perhaps somethings are not meant to be understood and should be dismissed as the improbable made possible.

    Trump is a wufless man saying that he has no room in america for Bahamian refugees
    How on earth can anyone support this man
    I bet if it was israel he would part the red sea and walk on water to bring the jews into America
    This idiot seems to have a nasty problem with Caribbean people
    What a jack a.ss

    ++++++++++++++++++++

    Now if you look at what the Bahamas Government is saying there are NO REFUGEES!!

    The Government is saying, if you want to help us, come visit!!

    Only 2 of our 700 islands have been affected.

    It is business as usual!!

    The US already has millions in aid delivered.

    The message from the US is clear, “go ahead, rebuild and we will help you”!!

    “The Intended Appellant, Professor Eddy Ventose (‘Professor Ventose’) applied to the Caribbean Court of Justice (‘CCJ’) urgently on Friday May 11th, 2018 after office hours seeking special leave to appeal the decision of the Court of Appeal of Barbados rendered on May 6th, 2018. Professor Ventose wanted to be entered on the Register of Voters ahead of the May 24th general election date. Given the urgency of the matter, the Court heard the application via video-conference on Sunday May 13th, 2018 at 11am.”

    You got that one right! Pure theatre but of the absurd variety.

    The world has seen similar dangerous fools performed long before these two clowns.

    Like Hitler and Mussolini, or even Pol Pot, they too would make their exits (or be pushed or forced to like Mugabe) from the stage of megalomania and political tomfoolery.

    ‘The world is just a stage and all men and women merely players [actors]. They have the entrances and [definitely] their inevitable exits’.

    To carry on from where Walter Blackman ‘abruptly’ stopped on another blog with his Shakespearian quotation from “As You Like It”:

    “The sixth age shifts
    Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,
    With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
    His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
    For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
    Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
    And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
    That ends this strange eventful history,
    Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
    Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.”

  • Brexit: Operation Yellowhammer no-deal document published

    Image copyright PA Media

    Riots on the streets, food price rises and reduced medical supplies are real risks of the UK leaving the EU without a deal, a government document has said.

    Ministers have published details of their Yellowhammer contingency plan, after MPs voted to force its release.

    It outlines a series of “reasonable worst case assumptions” for the impact of a no-deal Brexit on 31 October.

    Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the paper confirmed the PM “is prepared to punish those who can least afford it”.

    Michael Gove, one of Boris Johnson’s senior cabinet colleagues who has been given responsibility for no-deal planning, said “revised assumptions” will be published “in due course alongside a document outlining the mitigations the government has put in place and intends to put in place”.

    However, ministers have blocked the release of communications between No 10 aides about Parliament’s suspension.

    Mr Gove said MPs’ request to see e-mails, texts and WhatsApp messages from Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson’s chief aide, and eight other advisers in Downing Street were “unreasonable and disproportionate”.

    Publishing the information, he added, would “contravene the law” and “offend against basic principles of fairness”.
    Image copyright Reuters
    Image caption Dominic Cummings was one of those named in the request to release communications

    The government sought to resist the publication of the Operation Yellowhammer document, but lost a vote on the issue in the Commons on Monday, prior to the suspension of Parliament, so it was compelled it to do so.

    The six-page document, dated 2 August and leaked to the Sunday Times last month, warns of disruption at Dover and other channel crossings for at least three months, an increased risk of public disorder, and some shortages of fresh food.

    Mr Blogmaster, I am going yo direct this to your remark of “John […] Come on, you can be better than this.”

    You were speaking of the UK and Brexit but I believe you expect your bloggers to always refrain from creating alternative facts and misleading with BS!

    The ALTERNATIVE FACTS (what used to be called ‘telling lies’: Look at the results of special elections in North Carolina [9th District] yesterday. Polls said Dan Bishop would lose by 14%…Trump lost it by 20,000 votes in 2016!!

    REALITY:According to FiveThirtyEight websiteTrump won the NC 9th District by 12 points…AND most of the leading polls leading up to election day called the contest as a CLOSE race…with some polling giving Republican Bishop at 1 point advsntage and others the Democratic a 5 point advantage. Polls ALWAYS speak of a margin of error (generally 3% – 5%)…so that suggests a tight race.

    Moreover this is a REPUBLICAN district …actually 14 points more Republican than the national swing! The last rep was Republican of course.

    The Dem candidate was up agaist all that and the bully pulpit power of the President…that he carried so many votes is a boost for him!

    AND in the other special election in that same state, most definitely the Dem candidate was shellacked …but the district was REDDER STILL …24 points leaning Republican.

    Good heaveans the Republican political machine and POTUS did a great job to get their people over the line in contests they were EXPECTED to win in HEAVY Republican voting districts. …Hooray to them…

    ..Why is there the need for this level of inaccurate blogging… surely we are BETTER than that!

    Sensible, rational people have confidence in the legitimate media and when they analyse aggregated polls and carefully interpret the data, they can decipher possuble outcomes….

    …It’s snake oil Presidents and dissembling, alternative facts pundits they can’t trust!

  • The survey, conducted by the Democratic firm ALG Research, shows McCready and Bishop tied at 46 percent each among likely voters in the district’s September 10 special election, while another 8 percent of likely voters said they were undecided.

    When respondents were told about Bishop’s 2017 state Senate vote against a bill allowing pharmacists to discuss lower-cost alternative drugs with patients, McCready’s support in the race went up to 51 percent, according to the internal poll, while Bishop dropped to 43 percent and 6 percent remained undecided.

    In a memo, pollsters John Anzalone and Kevin Akin said that McCready was in a “competitive position” to flip a district that has been held by Republicans since 1963 and one carried by President Trump in 2016 by more than 11 points.

I opined that lack of these skills could cause one to make the horrifying mistake of voting for Donald Trump. He said that there was no need for critical thinking or analysis in this instance because who and what Trump is shows plainly on his face. Those who cannot see it, do not want to see it, he thought.

    Trump lies every day, my son says. Trump says one thing in the morning and another thing in the afternoon. There is no more proof needed that he is unfit for office. No-one who seems incapable of telling the truth can be good for any country.

    I then amplified it with facts!!

    My advice remains.

    If a doctor tells you a limb needs to be removed, go get another opinion!!

    What you hear on CNN etc, affectionately called the drive by media by Rush Limbaugh, is not necessarily true.

    Conservative Radio is one way of fact checking the drive by media.

    The best you can accuse me of is omitting the name of the county (Cumberland) in North Virginia that Trump lost by 14%.

    Since he won North Virginia it is obvious to the blind there was an omission which became more obvious when the number of votes, 20,000 was enumerated.

    The region in North Virginia Trump won had upwards of 2 million voters so 20,000 was always a number that could only have been a small part of the whole!!

    … but then that is what a critical thinker would have done before firing from the hip!!!

    … and no, I didn’t intentionally do it for fun just to show you up!!

    I was transcribing the facts as I was hearing them and omitted the name of the county which Rush had mentioned!!

    But, seriously, always get another opinion, the basis of critical thinking.

    I am settled on Rush.

    I used to watch CNN and Rachael Maddow and a host of others!!

    Fox was good, O’Reilly I enjoyed and Trump was always doing something novel!!.

    I started when the primaries were on but it primarily was boredom which drove me away … all they could give was Democrat news and play the boring debates between Crooked Hilary and Crazy Bernie.

    “I have just related what I had heard on Conservative Radio!!…I then amplified it with facts!!”…..In deference to the upside world you inhabit I’ll say you used alternative facts. In the real world I would have said you used LIES .

    And lets be clear (again in the real world) a lie is also a valid and correct statement that has been misused or used out of context …thus it is a lie to cite the correct results of ONE specific county in a NATIONAL election and say the candidate lost it by 20,00 votes in order to support your point of the success of this current candidate….when the original candidate won the entire district bigly!

    You say you only watch Fox so I know (I watch them sometimes but not only) that you therefore subscribe to their mantra that POTUS never lies but simply spins and used hyperbole or exaggerates….so one can easily understand YOUR SPIN of YOUR lies! 🤣 OH LORDIE.

    Continue your dissembling senor…it fits you well!

    “The best you can accuse me of is omitting the name of the county (Cumberland) in North Virginia that Trump lost by 14%….Since he won North Virginia it is obvious to the blind there was an omission which became more obvious when the number of votes, 20,000 was enumerated.”

    OMG…careless, careless. It’s North Carolina but no biggie…I get yah. What I accuse you of is lying or being a professional bother or just being a nuisance blogger. Your call.

    What you did was CERTAINLY no kiddie mistake…

    “… and no, I didn’t intentionally do it for fun just to show you up!!” 🤣😂 Classic…YOU are showing ME up for inane, false commentary. Absolutely priceless…..You surely are learning your lines very well from the POTM [manipulators]…Very good twisting work, there.🤣

    “I was transcribing the facts as I was hearing them and omitted the name of the county which Rush had mentioned!!”

    Just as POTM was transcribing the hurricane news and OMITTED that it was no longer a VALID course of concern for Alabama! As I said you learn well …almost script for script comparison. 🤣

    “But, seriously, always get another opinion, the basis of critical thinking.” Do you take your own advice! They say that lawyers who ‘self represent’ have a fool for a client but that would not app,y to you in this case…or would it!😁😂

    Mr Blogmaster, not much marks for meaningless speculation, I see!

    There is not much analysis needed to affirm either of their victories other than the old saw about running from a bear: you don’t need to out run the bear really, you simply need to out run the person next to you!

    Trump has created the type of virtual reality where an entire large segment of the electorate COMPLETELY subscribe to whatever he says or texts…thus, if he can continue to out run Biden (maybe) with his ridiculously false claims; hurt him with the scandals of Biden’s pay-to-play allegations; deflect all the negatives he creates and maybe get a national incident that allows him to pompesette and pander to safety issues then yes he WILL WIN.

    The US economy is strong despite the trade wars and tariffs, and the country almost has met the economic full-employment standard…presidents benefit from that.

    Johnson has much less in the way of economic successes but he too appears a better runner than his peers…so he appears likely to win that bear race too!

    It’s really as simple as that in all the complexities of possible impeachment, SCOTUS ruling et al in US; and Appellate Court rulings, misleading the Crown and Brexit recession worries on the other side …as long as they stay ahead of the vicious bear of fatal scandal and adversaries they will win the day.

    They both appear well poised to do that so far!

  • Whatever unfolds, I think it will become apparent that there is a latent force which wants to stop Brexit all costs.

    It controls the media in the UK and USA and beyond and through the media in the USA, the Democrat Party.

    Many in the Republican Party in the US are also subject to control as in the Tory Party.

    It uses the exact same tactics to undermine both Boris and Trump.

    Both are threats to its existence and it looks like it might be because the two may be teaming up to execute Brexit!!.

    The media also controls many people not involved in politics by politicizing almost everything.

    The most many of those young people in the clip in the blog can say is “fcuk Boris” or “fcuk Trump”.

    It shapes public opinion through inaccurate polls and repetitive messages.

    A case in point were the polls and messaging in the North Carolina Elections just concluded.

    The problem with inaccurate polls pushed by the media we saw with Hilary … people actually believed them!!

    Trump seems to be impervious to negative polls and messaging!!

I look for logic only. based on facts that cannot be refuted. (For instance, a remark that I have HEARD THE PRESIDENT MAKE WITH MY OWN EARS OR A POLICY THAT HE HAS EXPOUNDED UPON AND SUBSEQUENTLY IMPLEMENTED.) I always hope that they will tell a little truth about what was said and done even if they differ on what it means and save me from that totally disorienting Alice in Wonderland feeling that besets me when I hear topsy turvy arguments based on “alternative facts”. Occasionally they play it straight and that is when the Liar-in Chief in the White House whines and complains that they are not living up to their pledge of allegiance.

    Save it, John! Trump and his nasty band of liars aren’t fooling even a sixteen-year-old Barbadian boy. Not even when he was a thirteen-year-old boy was he fooled. He, his friends and all non-white Barbadian teenagers chose to believe the evidence of their eyes and ears. Besides, “What is in Trump’s heart shows forth on his countenance.” His ugliness is apparent before he even opens his twisted lips.

  • Dear John,

    Hope you have taken the medicine. Here is my last attempt to put this matter to bed gracefully. The UK leaving the EU is not that simple; we have a large number of multi-lateral agreements that will come apart at midnight on Oct 31.
    He are some examples: food safety, the European arrest warrants, scientific cooperation, university exchanges, and a long list of other areas of cooperation. Do you think the EU will cooperate with the UK if it leaves the union?
    I will give two examples: there is a deadly, antibiotic resistant form of sexually transmitted disease that has come out of Ibiza, the Spanish resort favoured by young people. Once that was realised, the EU system kicked in: UK scientists went off to every major EU capital to share information. Do you think the EU will cooperate in future in such instances?
    Or take food safety: at present if infected corned beef arrives in any EU country from Argentina or Brazil, that information is immediately shared and a ban imposed. Do you think the UK, with one set of eyes, will catch all those risks on its own? Do you think the other 27 EU nations will cooperate.
    The drift towards the US will mean the importation of chlorinated chicken, hormone infected beef etc. In other words, UK food will be banned in the EU, our biggest market.
    It is not just a matter of Brexit and taking up your ball and leaving. Then there are the other areas of cooperation that will suddenly come to a halt.
    It is ironic that the big Brexit demand was bring sovereignty to back to the UK, and now the Tory prime minister has prorogued parliament; how strange.
    What kind of sovereignty is this when they will have to trade under WTO rules, be a member of NATO, the ECHR, etc.

    The public finances are on the mend, recording a healthy surplus in January on booming tax receipts. Employment is at record levels, with real wage growth at a two-year high. Despite a global slowdown, Britain expanded 1.4 per cent last year, recording just 4 per cent unemployment. Yet Germany and France are on the brink of recession, the Italian economy is contracting and eurozone joblessness is twice as high…

    The UK has economic problems – and let no-one say we don’t hear about them, given the relentless drumbeat of anti-Brexit media negativity. Just as the economy held up after the 2016 referendum, though – belying Treasury warnings of “an immediate and profound economic shock” – there are…

    Mr Blogmaster…you should have a stipulation which suggests that folks should always use a pseudonym if they are going to display their ludricous, petty bias so obviously…in short, defacing their supposed intellectual heft!

    Quote from above…“That’s why I think he will win again, Joe Bite muh and that lot are a bunch of LUNATICS the voters don’t want!!” DEFINITION- Lunatic: a person affected with a severely disordered state of mind!

    Read this recently released but old report (excerpts)…who is THE lunatic!

    Back in 2017 The head of Justice’s ethics office, Cynthia Shaw, [wrote] “I am not convinced that an authorization [a determination of Robert Mueller’s conflicts of interest] is needed, but unequivocally, if one is, the overwhelming need of the Government for Mr. Mueller’s services greatly outweighs the concern that a reasonable person may question the integrity of the Department’s programs and operations, […] I am not certain that a reasonable person in possession of the relevant facts would question his impartiality.”……. REASONABLE PERSON….note that!😂

    So the person supposedly not affected with a severely disordered state of mind said about this man : “But we have conflicts. I had a nasty business transaction with Robert Mueller a number of years ago. I said, why isn’t that mentioned? He wanted the job as FBI Director. I mean, these are things that are out there; they know it. Why isn’t that — and I didn’t give it to him. Why isn’t that mentioned?” …. Note again what would d a REASONABLE PERSON do!

    The nasty dispute was about ending membership in a private club owned by the speaker quoted above and Mueller asking for some of his annual fees to be refunded as he ended his membership early. Nasty dispute, really! …. The job thing is a blatant LIE!

    *”Bannon recalled that the White House had invited Mueller to speak to the President to offer a perspective on the institution of the FBI. Bannon said that, although the [WHITE HOUSE THOUGHT] about beseeching Mueller to become Director again, [HE DID NOT] come in looking for the job.””

    “Bannon called the claims “ridiculous,” while McGahn viewed them as “silly” and “not real.”

    Yet, the man in the WH repeatedly made these assertions (and lies) about non existing conflicts !

    But EVERYONE else is a lunatic and he is the only sanity in town….

    Are there any free tickets to Mars…not for me though 🤣!

Any attack from Trump would be swatted back and made to look ridiculous. He is in trouble with the black people though, probably justifiably so. Still I think he is the one most capable of seeing the full picture of what is wrong with America and what needs to be done to fix it. He is most capable of leading the conversations that need to be had. Kamala I don’t find impressive as a presidential candidate. Though I like some of Elizabeth’s Warren’s ideas I think she needs to get real on college debt and education and Bernie Sanders is just too far left for America.. I believe in incremental change. It tends to stick, whereas revolutionary change breeds too much of a backlash. Laws are changed that force behavioural change while hearts and minds remain the same and seek the earliest possible opportunity to return to the past status quo.

    I think Democrats had better be very careful to articulate better on immigration Right now they are giving the impression that they want a free for all that is not practical. I don’t think that is really their position. They must also be careful on taking away choices in health care. They must stop glibly referring to abortion as reproductive health care and treat it as the lesser of two evils. They must also tread carefully when speaking of confiscation of guns and instead seek to start the conversation on what are the causes of gun violence and what can and should be done about it.. The path of least resistance is best in this instance.
