Michael Moore on Donald Trump – Fahrenheit 11/9

Film-make Michael Moore can be an acquired taste, but then again, he’s not afraid to make points that other shy from, and he’s an Oscar winner, so he must be doing something right.

The first trailer for Michael Moore’s Donald Trump documentary Fahrenheit 11/9 has been released, promising an incendiary look at modern life in America.

The Oscar-winning film-maker has been focusing on the effect of the president in an attempt to shift public perception before November. “I’m finishing my movie and getting it out before the midterms because I want millions of people to get to the polls,” he said to Bill Maher in June. “We’re going to bring Trump down.”

In the first footage from the film, we see Moore speak to the Parkland student and activist David Hogg and rising Democratic star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Bowling for Columbine director is also seen spraying “Flint water” into the front yard of Rick Snyder, the governor of Michigan.

Moore describes Trump as “the last president of the United States”. The film’s title is a reference to the day that he won the election.

In an interview with HuffPost, Moore describes Trump as an “evil genius” and speaks to the potential power of his new film.

Fahrenheit 11/9: first trailer for Michael Moore’s Trump documentary

The documentary will premiere at this year’s Toronto film festival before a US release on 21 September.

“Hope is passive,” Moore said about the movie. “Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work. Hope leads people to believe that tax returns, or a pee tape, or the FBI or an adult film star will save the country. Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with. It’s the lazy way out. We don’t need hope. We need action.”

Seems fair – fairer than anything that’s come from the Orange Moron.

The Big Orange Baby (can’t really ignore this affront)

There were just too many gems to pick from as the Orange Moron imposed himself on Scotland and the UK this week, but there were a couple that caught my eye.

You obviously can’t take him anywhere decent people go…

Orange baby has tiny hands, tiny brain, tiny bladder… can’t hold his tea…

Trump Tea Pee

Trump Tea Pee

And this sums up his respect for many…

Probably the most entertaining and informative activity during this sham visit has been the efforts of the Trump shills, as they came out in force in a (vain) effort to combat the negative comments from real people.

The most telling reveal was the way they often tried to equate the right of people to express their dislike of this obnoxious character by citing recent rulings on hate crime, as if they were picking on some aspect of the moron that he had no choice over.

While the Orange Moron chooses to target groups for his actions by way of birth/race/sex (which are criteria for hate crime), there is NO similarity in the actions of people who choose to be disgusted by his choices in such actions, and their expression of dislike or opposition to those things he has chosen to do.

But his side is unable to see such a difference.

Interesting

Given his past pronunciations, there were a number of intriguing article in the media at the same time, for example…

By far the longest read was this article compiled by the BBC, and worth a look. It overs a lot of ground, and a lot of history,

Trump and Scotland

It seems he wasn’t even able to beat his son into agreeing that a wind farm built way out to sea ruined the view from his ‘magical’ golf course.

Eric Trump: Wind turbines don’t spoil golf course view

But, as was said would happen by those not anywhere on Trump’s payroll, the once significant dunes which bordered the site of his ‘magical’ golf course HAVE been ruined, and are probably going to be lost as a SSSI, with the classification withdrawn – but the Trump Organisation has also insisted that its environmental approach in Aberdeenshire has been “first class”.

Trump golf course ‘destroyed’ dunes

And finally, there’s a cheeky wee summary, just to remind you he really is an oaf of the first magnitude, not worth listening to (and should never ever have been allowed into the position he was able to somehow ‘swing’).

Welcome To Scotland Orange Moron

I found the person who prepared these placards being ‘Shouted Down’ by Trump shills trying to swamp the owners’ comment area with praise, propaganda (sorry, I should say ‘Alternative Facts’, shouldn’t I?), and hero worship for their paymaster.

So…

In the interests of balance, I thought I’d just copy them here, and turn comments off.

And enjoy the feeling of satisfaction I can maybe share – with the image of those shills’ fuming with frustration at something they can do NOTHING about.

The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend – Orange Moron validates ancient proverb

Must be the first time I’ve ever agreed with politicians, campaign groups, and trades union representatives.

Remarkable!

(Don’t worry, I still have no time for any them in their ‘normal’ mode – this agreement is purely for this one common issue, and is not political, but to highlight an affront to all of us.)

Protesters united under the coalition will march against the Orange Moron’s alleged sexism, racism, and close ties to Russia as well as his administration’s environmental and immigration policies.

Umbrella group Scotland Against Trump is advertising a demonstration in Glasgow’s George Square on Friday, July 13 between 5-8pm.

Elsewhere (in Scotland) protests are expected at both of the Moron’s Scottish golf courses – Trump International Golf Links at Balmedie, Aberdeenshire, and Trump Turnberry near Girvan.

It’s been reported SCROTUS (branded a ‘vile xenophobe’ by the Scottish Green Party) will not visit the Isle of Lewis, birthplace of his mother Mary Anne MacLeod.

Apparently not a pic, despite its accuracy, and described as an ‘Angry Baby’ balloon.

So sweet – a poke in the eye for Donald Trump

The view from Donald Trump’s hated white hefalump golf course has been spoiled (in his mind at least – if he had one that is).

SCROTUS lost a series of legal battles against the Aberdeen Bay wind farm.

Eleven turbines – some of the world’s most powerful – are being erected in Aberdeen Bay a short distance from a golf course owned by the US President.

The 625ft towers are three times taller than the Scott Monument and will be secured to the seabed by 1800-tonne anchors, which are being installed this week.

Trump claimed the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre would spoil the view from his course at Balmedie, which was given planning permission three years before the wind farm.

The Day the Earth Stood Still – updated

I’ve managed to resist most of the temptation to post material about the greatest liar and ignorant, racist, fascist, misogynistic (oh make your own list) orange moron that’s been seen in a position of power for some time.

I must have saved myself hour upon hour as a result, even if at some cost in mental strain.

But I thought at least one insightful cartoon spotted way back was worthy of an encore as 2017 come to a close.

Thankfully, ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ is only classic science fiction.

I suspect if ‘They’ really are out there watching us, then today, the Earth would merely be a second asteroid belt, rubble orbiting the Sun, and we wouldn’t even have known about it.

Will baby SCROTUS throw a tantrum if his toys are taken away?

As an outside observer, I’m amazed (or am I?) that the people of the US have allowed this orange moron to stay in power for so long, and make them look so stupid.

From the days of the Cold War, I had gained the impression the President of the United States had the authority to launch a nuclear strike without asking anybody, or having to seek approval.

Sadly, it seems my impression was correct, and ‘The Button’ is his to press if he so wishes.

I think I felt safer during the Cold War, when we had people like Stanislov Petrov looking after us.

One can only hope that those who might receive the order today, and actually have to initiate the final launch from the silos, have some sense of responsibility, and are not mindless automatons, despite their training and commitment. Or, consider the reality of a ‘Legal Order’ (see Update below).

See These Women Are the Last Thing Standing Between You and Nuclear War

For the first time in over 40 years, Congress has examined a US president’s authority to launch a nuclear attack.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing was titled Authority to Order the Use of Nuclear Weapons.

Some senators expressed concern that the president might irresponsibly order a nuclear strike; others said he must have the authority to act without meddling from lawyers.

The last time Congress debated this issue was in March 1976.

In August, Mr Trump vowed to unleash “fire and fury like the world has never seen” on North Korea if it continued to expand its atomic weapons programme.

Last month, the Senate committee’s Republican chairman, Senator Bob Corker, accused the president of setting the US “on a path to World War 3”.

Update

There was an interesting article that appeared AFTER I noted this: US nuclear chief would resist ‘illegal’ presidential strike order

The top nuclear commander in the US says he would resist any “illegal” presidential order to launch a strike.

Air Force Gen John Hyten, said as head of the US Strategic Command he provided advice to a president and expected that a legal alternative would be found.

His comments come just days after US senators discussed a president’s authority to launch a nuclear attack.

Some of them expressed concern that President Donald Trump might irresponsibly order such a strike.

Others though said a president must have the authority to act without meddling from lawyers. It was the first such hearing in more than 40 years.

While Senators and expert witnesses agree the president has full authority to defend the nation, commentators have pointed out that because there is no all-encompassing definition of “imminent attack”, the president is not given an entirely free hand.

“I provide advice to the president, he will tell me what to do,” Gen Hyten said.

“And if it’s illegal, guess what’s going to happen? I’m going to say: ‘Mr President, that’s illegal.’ And guess what he’s going to do? He’s going to say, ‘What would be legal?’ And we’ll come up with options, of a mix of capabilities to respond to whatever the situation is, and that’s the way it works.

“It’s not that complicated,” Gen Hyten added.

He added: “If you execute an unlawful order, you will go to jail. You could go to jail for the rest of your life.”

President Trump has not publicly commented on Gen Hyten’s remarks.

He’s probably waiting for somebody to draw them for him, in pictures.

Coincidence!

Toxic Trump infection destroys anything it touches

The world’s biggest liar is never going to change.

Having ruined the lives and victimised residents of Menie while his enforcers ensured his unwanted golf course was inflicted on the area back in 2008, it seems that all the promises about not damaging the environment there were all lies.

Only 12 seconds into this video, the lies begin to pour from Trump’s mouth with:

And it’s going to be done environmentally perfect“…

Although the area was assigned the status of a SSSI (site of special scientific interest) and should have been protected, Trump’s assurances (and one cannot doubt his money) meant that this status was set aside, and the golf course was allowed.

Now, it has been reported that a review is to be carried out into the special scientific status of the area as the Menie Estate course is said to have caused habitat loss for wildlife and damage to the sand dune system.

Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) is looking into the scale of the impact to decide if all or parts of the site should lose the status:

An SNH spokesman said: “As expected, there are areas where there has been some permanent habitat loss – for example, where tracks, tees, fairways and greens have been constructed.

“There have been other habitat changes where, for example, mobile sand dunes have been stabilised through the planting of marram grass.

“Part of our review will be to assess the significance and scale of this loss and damage.”

Jonny Hughes, chief executive of the Scottish Wildlife Trust, said: “The Scottish Wildlife Trust was strongly opposed to the Trump development.

“Our main objection was that there would be severe and irreversible damage to around 40% of the Foveran Links SSSI, one of the best sand dune systems of its type in north-western Europe.

“Therefore, it would be unsurprising if the SSSI status is removed.”

“I don’t think it matters to us”

Trump doesn’t care, since it was decided that the economic impact of the development was considered more important than environmental concerns after a public local inquiry was carried out.

Trump International Golf Links Scotland executive vice-president Sarah Malone said: “I don’t think it matters to us.

“It may matter to other people and we’ll be comfortable with whatever the option and the decision on that is. We bought the site because of these extraordinary sand dunes. Why would we do anything to damage them?

“The fact of the matter is, contrary to what is propagated by a very small group of people, our environmental approach was first class.”

Via Trump golf course ‘forced animals from their homes’

More details about Trump’s sham concern are given here: Trump golf course dunes’ special status ‘to be reviewed’

We should probably consider ourselves lucky he was only able to ruin a few sand dunes in Scotland.

As SCROTUS, he’s been able to ruin much of the US in the eyes of the rest of the World.

POTUS, SCROTUS, or ‘Not My President’ – this moron has a toilet fetish

It seems we can’t avoid this detestable, ignorant, moronic, narcissist SCROTUS, and I seem to see altogether too many pics and stories where his face is somehow associated with toilets, or toilet functions.

And there is little or no love for this cretin in Scotland, after the abuse and mistreatment of locals around his rotten golf course

The latest was a cover for TIME, created after he made a laughing-stock of the US by pulling out of the Paris accord on climate change, and apparently providing a whole load of his ‘Alternative Facts’ (or lies) about the subject to prove he’s right and everyone else is wrong.

Pretty accurate.

I could go on (really, I could, just try combining the moron’s name with toilet items as an online search), but probably a reminder that a quick visit to Amazon will provide a number suitable offering on which you can express your personal opinion directly ‘Face-t0-Face’ with SCROTUS, such as:

Trump Face Toilet Paper

Frankly, it’s all beyond me, and even now I expect to wake up one morning and see the news that it was all a big joke, this ignorant pile of waste was never SCROTUS, and there has been a ‘Real’ president doing the job in secret.

But that’s not going to happen, is it?

Not with someone who has billions to buy whatever he likes, and has similar billionaires as his ‘mates’.

And Conspiracy Theorists thought The Bildebergers were a problem.

FOOLS!

Paris accord footnote

I forgot to include this, but it seems a shame not to, so…

It seems US comedian Kathy Griffiths is being targetted and ruined by a wealthy US billionaire with influential friends, after she just did her job and posed in a photo with a prop meant to resemble the severed head of SCROTUS.
