Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Trump – a disease that ruins everything it touches

With sufficient money, you can probably get away with just about anything, for a while at least.

Even serious blatant criminals, gangsters, and drug cartels do quite well behind their millions, until they make a mistake and the authorities lock them up, or their ‘friends’ arrive packing machine guns one day.

If you’re a orange moron you can even tell your fans how the Continental Army “took over the airports” during the American Revolutionary War in the 1770s, even though there was no air travel in 18th Century America, or anywhere else for that matter, since the famous Wright brother’s flight didn’t take place until 1903.

But if your name’s Trump, historical facts are irrelevant to your ‘Alternative Facts’. YOU know better!

While his army of followers, paid commenters, and camp followers think he’s some sort of god, the rest of us just look on, shake our heads, and marvel at how his billions are protecting him from impeachment, or being brought down some other way.

Many predicted he would destroy a part of Scotland some years ago, when he bulldozed land and people to make way for his golf course.

They were dismissed, and assured everything would be fine.

That nice Mr Trump and his organisation said they cared, and would look after everything.

Guess what?

They lied!

But, the Trump machine has already swung into action, and is accusing SNH of being the villain.

(My bold bits.)

Sand dunes at Donald Trump’s Aberdeenshire golf resort may lose their status as a protected wildlife site.

Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) said there is no longer a reason to protect the dunes at Menie as they do not include enough of the special features for which they were designated a site of special scientific interest (SSSI).

Trump International described the move as a “stitch-up” and said SNH had hit an “all-time low”.

The designation is given to areas with rare species of fauna or flora, or with important geological or physiological features.

Friday marks the beginning of a three-month consultation on the future status of Foveran Links SSSI, of which the dunes at Menie form part.

Mr Trump was granted permission to build a golf course at the site despite concerns about damage to the dunes and Trump International Golf Links opened in 2012.

SNH said evidence showed permanent habitat loss following the construction of fairways and greens, and that the stabilisation of mobile sand “has destroyed the dynamic nature of the site”.

Sally Thomas, director of people and nature at SNH, said: “The denotification of SSSIs is unusual, however in this case we have found there is no longer a reason to protect the dunes at Menie as they do not include enough of the special, natural features for which they were designated.

“We work with developers across Scotland to ensure habitats and wildlife are protected when development work is undertaken.

“Most of the time, development can take place without damaging important natural features, but this was not the case in this instance.”

SNH said evidence showed around a third of the special habitats at the Menie section of the Foveran SSSI had been damaged.

Trump’s golf course sand dunes could lose protected status

Let’s have the whole Trump organisation’s statement…

Sarah Malone, executive vice-president at Trump International, said: “This is an utter disgrace and shows SNH has hit an all-time low.

“To make an announcement to the media before informing us, the actual landowner, shows how politically-motivated this decision is. What other SSSI landowner is singled out in this way.

“It’s a stitch-up. Before Donald Trump invested in the site, SNH had little interest in the SSSI at Foveran Links and did even less about it, and has barely been on property since.”

Back in 2009, Ms Malone actually sounded as if she cared.

I wonder what hr bank account’s like nowadays?

How much IS integrity worth?
