Medicine Man Trump: My Sacraments Ain't Poison

by Oui Sat Apr 25th, 2020 at 07:35:33 PM EST

Wasn't Trump's Great Grandfather in search for gold in the Klondike Gold Rush but unfortunately got stuck in the State of Washington??

Trump the Lesser still has that pioneer spirit of the medicine man, snake oil and the easy sell to the destitute.

A fortnight ago this message from Bishop Mark Grenon to President Trump in the White House. Of course it got the President's ear when a Man of God comes as bearer of gold, frankincense and myrrh. In a chamber in the White House there is born a King of all Idiots across the New World.

Eye On Trade As Invisible China Virus Attacked

by Oui Thu Apr 23rd, 2020 at 09:55:28 PM EST

Preoccupied by Ukraine Quid-pro-Quo, Giuliani and cohorts, Impeachment trial, finishing trade talks phase One with China in January and the PR stunt to antagonize the global community at Davos.

o o o o o o o o o o

>> Zelensky who won the last fictional election for presidency in the Ukraine, found the door shut to the White House. The spring doldrums of Trump's lawyer Giuliani brought plenty of entertainment in U.S. Congress. The Democrats were easily defeated by a united front of red-hot Republicans. As the Impeachment Act ended in the Senate in January 2020, the invaders from China were well established across many states. As Trump so colorfully stated, he was caught off guard by this invisible enemy sent from Wuhan.

Sometimes God's creation moves in mysterious ways human kind just don't grasp. Although prophesized by virologists over a decade ago, science has no entry in the Republican led White House.

Well, one can put a virus to work to one's advantage of course. The virus spreads like wildfire in dense populations. Lo and behold, the large metropolitan areas in the US are in a majority BLUE states. So, who cares? Can't let blue lives of the elderly harm the New York Stock Exchange now, by far the BIGGEST financial center of Planet Earth. Please don't use that term or next you will be speaking about Green Energy, renewables - Koch Bros. are coughing up blood - and care for our planet to prevent further deterioration of air, water and soil.

The pandemic has used the fallacies of men to attack the most vulnerable of human species. Too late for any president of any colour to prevent the outbreak of a very contagious virus.

CIA-Man Saakashvili -- Soap Opera Extension

by Oui Thu Apr 23rd, 2020 at 09:04:58 AM EST

For some American entertainment during the woes of the coronavirus, a move by Pentagon hardliners to consolidate colonial power in Ukraine. After the coup-d'état of February 2014, the country continued to be rive with corruption. Too many millions disappeared in deep pockets of the oligarchs who adapted to the new Western masters.

After a stint as governor in Odessa under presidency of buddy Poroshenko, Saakashvili soon quit due to corruption he couldn't quite handle as a foreigner. His instant citizenship was just as easily removed instantly and Saakashvili sought and received refugee status in The Netherlands of Mark Rutte ... wink, wink!!

Laissez-faire Handling Outbreak by PM Boris Johnson

by Oui Mon Apr 20th, 2020 at 09:20:57 AM EST

The failures of the Westminster elite on coronavirus are no surprise - so why do we let them run Wales?

Today's Sunday Times article reveals a staggering level of hubris, incompetence and callousness shown by the UK Government and some of its close group of advisors in their handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

The report - published by a newspaper that wholeheartedly endorsed the Conservatives at the General Election - is perhaps the most damning article ever written about an UK government. It reveals that the entire response has been a shambles. This is a national catastrophe of a very British sort.

One of the UK Government's own scientific advisors has said that the UK could end up with the worst death toll in Europe. At least 15,000 people in the UK have already died of coronavirus, and perhaps many more since deaths outside hospitals remain underreported. These are children, grandchildren, parents and grandparents.

And given what we now know about the UK Government's early handling of the crisis, it's almost impossible to conclude that their incompetence has not contributed to the death toll.

We now know that back in January, Professor Neil Ferguson, one of the UK's leading infectious disease epidemiologists and a member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies, warned the government that this virus was potentially as lethal as the Flu Pandemic of 1918.

He highlighted the need for a "60% cut in the transmission rate" -- in other words social distancing and lockdown.

But Boris missed five Cobra meetings, not attending his first meeting until March.

Preaching Open Rebellion; Trump Unhinged

by Oui Sat Apr 18th, 2020 at 07:44:04 AM EST

Several bits of news items I posted, the larger picture is a U.S. President becoming unhinged as poll numbers fall and looking forward a double whammy recession for the greatest economy ever ... for the 1%. In adversity, the world sees true leaders and Trump is one prolific failure ... a loser. Held up the IRS payment of cheques to the American People because his signature should be on it. A gift from the White House, the President You have Chosen. His faithful in full lunacy calling Trump the Chosen One by the Almighty fulfilling the Book of the End of Times. Let the so-called Christians of the wealth preachers reread the Bible ... all that's prophecised has come to pass. The problem is in today's world where values are bungled, the people are following the wrong leaders. A dangerous phenomena is developing ... it was already in the cards when one cheats to get elected. Democracy doesn't work, it's been undermined by greed from Wall Street and the military-intelligence industrial complex.

Now to today's alarming headlines. First question asked as the Republican party bungled the Impeachment process, how to get rid of a dis-functional leader becoming more dangerous by the day?

New Colonialism: Reaping Profits Over Victims

by Oui Thu Apr 16th, 2020 at 11:31:28 AM EST

Missing solidarity or European Social-Democracy, the counterrevolution from the progressive Seventies to Conservatism and Pure Capitalism starting in the Reagan era. Beyond competition, earning decent wages and a basic right of healthcare, what the coronavirus pandemic lays bare is an open wound of a destitute America and many countries across the globe.

Washington DC was historically taught as being that shining city on the hill ... a close-up proves it to be quarrelling institutional powers dividing a great nation, not uniting peoples.

No one could EVER illustrate such division as a narcissistic president like Donald Trump. Every press briefing is an affront to what AMERICA STANDS FOR! It's just HORRIFIC that there are still so many followers from the hard working class to university educated persons following the populist policy of everyone for personal gain, others can literally die!

Masses of households living from pay check to pay check, falling ill or without medicine are in the waiting room of death. That was the America I saw as a 16-year old, the discrepancy and inequality has risen through Republican "leadership" to a alarming level. It's out there for everyone to see ... through social media and slowly through reports by journalists. It's more than dramatic ... it's like the horror of a New Civil War ... the worst of all wars!

A World of Emptiness - Near Financial Collapse

COVID-19 Attack: A look at the empty New York City streets amid the coronavirus

    "The crisis has brought the economy to a near halt, and left millions of people out of work. But thanks to intervention on an unprecedented scale, a full-scale meltdown has been averted - for now."

How coronavirus almost brought down the global financial system | The Guardian |

n the third week of March, while most of our minds were fixed on surging coronavirus death rates and the apocalyptic scenes in hospital wards, global financial markets came as close to a collapse as they have since September 2008. The price of shares in the world's major corporations plunged. The value of the dollar surged against every currency in the world, squeezing debtors everywhere from Indonesia to Mexico. Trillion-dollar markets for government debt, the basic foundation of the financial system, lurched up and down in terror-stricken cycles.

Easter Blasphemy Inside the Oval Office

by Oui Sat Apr 11th, 2020 at 09:47:01 AM EST

A message from Satan ... the Trump madness at Easter ... let this be a warning to all Americans! Murky, murkier, murkiest. Not grabbing pussy in the White House? Time to leave this role, it's not befitting the House for this Nation's Greatest Leaders ... the Playacting President of right-wing white supremacists losing it. His burial with be in November 2020. Lifting the curtain for this charade of the Republican party, may their loss in U.S. Congress be of the same proportion as how the predicted pandemic decimated the elderly and less fortunate this year. Defeat this capitalism of doom and take the wealth preaching pastors along with it to hell. After 9/11 under Bush first term,  Katrina disaster in 2005, the bank- and financial crisis of 2008-09, austerity lashing out, inequality on the increase and the techno giants of Silicon Valley with greed over people and democracy.

The world may not return to the old "normal". Take the destiny into your hands and defeat Trump this election against all odds of manipulation, propaganda and disinformation. Enough of the LIES and incompetence.

This simple remark triggered my interest to look into this christian [What's In A Name?] pastor. "Prayer for a thriving economy" in an Easter message of hope for a devastated nation, suffering an immense health pandemic. There will never be a return to normal as lives have been cut short. "Herd immunity" ... delay in preparation for the coming pandemic predicted over  a decade ago. Profit before people's welfare. The roaring years of a stock market boom ... on whom will Trump and his minions in Congress blame their misfortune and how to confuse cause and effect to sell it during the coming presidential campaign.

Inviting the black bigot pastor to deliver this message is a blasphemy of Jesus Christ and his first principle: "Love Thy Neighbour As Thyself."

Harry Jackson and Donald Trump are about selfishness, greed and welfare for the wealthy because they are targets of god's grace. Pure heresy of Christian Faith of People of Good Will as laid down in the foundation of Bethlehem. Israel and the Palestinian religious sites are all SHUT DOWN.

Biggest Threat to Democracy Is Disinformation

by Oui Mon Mar 30th, 2020 at 02:24:41 PM EST

Whether to go to war in Syria or Iraq or to manipulate public opinion for putting sanctions in place on "imaginary" adversaries, BIG government possess very powerful tools to weaponize information. Clearly with tech powerhouses like Google, Facebook, Alphabet, Appel and Amazon the global community faces an imbalance to preserve elections and democracy itself. A nice chat on Al Jazeera between whistle-blower Christopher Wylie and Filipino journalist Maria Ressa before an audience is a boost to morale to fight the fight.

In a world moving at a fast pace, the populist, conservative politicians will seize every opportunity of created chaos like today's COVID-10 Pandemic to move forward on their agenda of BIG BROTHER 21st Century style with no scruples.

What has already passed in Asia with China, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong will soon come to pass inside the European Union. The signs are there today!!

Healthiest Generation Under Attack

As the oldest veterans of WWII are dwindling to zero, the baby boomers and half a generation before are part of a healthy group because of food, physical exercise, and economic well being.

Today this group is callously put in harm's way by their own government.

Too many weird and strange policy initiatives have been launched by a handful of countries.

Caught Between Herd Immunity And National Lockdown, Holland Hit Hard By Covid-19 | Forbes |

In a national address to the Dutch nation on Monday, March 16th, Prime Minister Mark Rutte said his country would aim to develop immunity to the novel coronavirus among its population by allowing large numbers to contract the illness at a controlled pace.

Initially, creating herd immunity for the novel coronavirus was one of two main objectives of Dutch government policy: Controlling spread of the virus while protecting vulnerable groups, including the elderly and people with underlying health conditions. By striking this balance rather than instituting a national lockdown, the thought was the nation could avoid a situation in which post lockdown - when society returns to normal - it would be exposed to the danger of a new outbreak as too few people would have become infected and therefore immune.

CoV-2 Herd Immunity is Incongruous to Healthcare

by Oui Thu Mar 26th, 2020 at 08:54:33 AM EST

Concerns the COVID-19 Pandemic originating in Wuhan, China in December 2019.

Western nations not heeding the early warning warnings and data from China and the WHO.

'This beast is moving very fast.' Will the new coronavirus be contained--or go pandemic? | ScienceMag - Feb. 5, 2020 |

The repatriation of 565 Japanese citizens from Wuhan, China, in late January offered scientists an unexpected opportunity to learn a bit more about the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) raging in that city. To avoid domestic spread of the virus, Japanese officials screened every passenger for disease symptoms and tested them for the virus after they landed. Eight tested positive, but four of those had no symptoms at all, says epidemiologist Hiroshi Nishiura of Hokkaido University, Sapporo--which is a bright red flag for epidemiologists who are trying to figure out what the fast-moving epidemic has in store for humanity. If many infections go unnoticed, as the Japanese finding suggests, that vastly complicates efforts to contain the outbreak.

What did politicians in Europe know and why didn't react to the warnings?

From Outbreak to a Global Pandemic

No, Mark Rutte can be accused of intentional neglect by following the suggestion of his chosen scientists on "herd immunity". The RIVM is still not following WHO instructions to do the testing!

Minister President Mark Rutte of The Netherlands will be remembered in history, quite like Dutch PM Colijn during the military build-up in Germany and the outbreak of World War II ...

Crisis In Leadership

by Oui Sat Mar 21st, 2020 at 09:35:30 AM EST

I must admit, during my lifetime I've seen far more failures in leadership than succes.

In a democracy, the public is easily manipulated by PR and a non-critical media. Therefore, the popularity curve of leaders are far behind as a crisis develops. As new data is confronting the man in the street, the popularity polls catches up.

Interesting comparison I found was president Johnson's Vietnam War and George Bush in the Iraq War.
