Trump Heading for the Slammer!!!!

Tax – that’s how they nailed Al Capone. But he was just a small-time gangster compared to Trump’s colossal scamming. Trump made $1.6 billion out of the Presidency. Easy money. I bet he didn’t pay a cent of tax. He’s been robbing American people all his life!!

Now they are going to force the release of the tax returns he has been refusing to reveal. It will reveal the enormity of the crime. The tax is the tip of the iceberg.

DRAIN THE SWAMP!!!!

Representing the ordinary Blue-collar workers? I don’t think so. They’ve been had by a conman.

It’s nothing. It’ll go away. Get back to work. All fake news. The media has it in for me. They lie. They say that bleach doesn’t work. I know it works. It says on it – kills 99.9%. They just wanted to make me look bad so Biden could steal the election. Those suckers should have stormed the Capitol and lynched that Peolosi bitch like I told them to. Restore order. The UV works. They know it does. All lefty witchhunts. Now they shut down my twitter! They stole my Presidency. They all lie. It’s all fake news. When I drain that swamp I’ll bury them all in it. That’s it Rudy.

‘ But err, err, I say, arf arf, what do I bally do about it?’

‘Do what your mate Farage did. He’s a great guy. Would make a great prime minister. I could get on with him. He’s bigly good. Came on my rallies. Said nice things about me. I like that guy. He never let facts get in the way! Never trust experts. The scientists are all bought off by Biden. All that climate change. All a hoax. They just want to stop me making money. Cash. You can’t beat the cash. Vlad always says that. Cash is truth. The scientists say what they’re paid to say. Follow the cash. They all lie. It’s all fake news. Everyone knows the world is flat. Science is all lies. But they didn’t stop me. I made $1.6 billion big ones! I would have made a lot more but I had to pay off a lot of guys, a lot of guys, big guys. Vlad and the mafia don’t mess around. You want those guys on your side. And Stormy, she loves cash. The more cash the better she licks. I love cash. You can’t beat a dollar. Those losers took it off me! They’re trying to check my tax returns. I paid tax. I paid some back in 2007. Thirty dollars! It’s just a witchhunt.’

‘But err, arf, even my party are saying I lie. My ratings are hmmmmppph, errr, bally dropping!’

Trump – Lest we Forget

The crass, inept, arrogant stupidity of the man – Lest we forget – The division, racism and greed. Less we forget – the tyranny and fascism, the insurrection and criminality. Lest we forget!

He is still looking to be elected again. The fascism he stirred up is still alive.

Poetry – Post-Truth Era

Post-Truth Era

Truth is now a commodity

They sell to the likes of you and me.

They spin the facts to tell the lies

Without a thought to where’s or whys.

Their intent is to deceive;

To alter the truth that we believe.

I couldn’t make it any clearer!

We’re living in the post-truth era.

They use algorithms to detect our fears

And feed us garbage to draw our tears.

They know the things that we desire

And offer dreams to take us higher.

They rig elections and alter our vote

From websites that are not so remote.

I couldn’t make it any clearer!

We’re living in the post-truth era.

Democracy can’t survive this war

We have to ask: ‘what are they doing it for?’

They manipulate us like we were dough –

Half-baked and never in the know.

Every expert is rubbished and denied

All their pronouncements are decried.

I couldn’t make it any clearer!

We’re living in the post-truth era.

They seek the power and they want our loot.

As for freedom and fairness they don’t give a hoot!

Sowing confusion into all our thought

So we never do what we know we ought

Paranoia and conspiracy theory is their game

Until we don’t even know who to blame.

I couldn’t make it any clearer!

We’re living in the post-truth era.

Even those who consider themselves free

Are being fed with lies of conspiracy

Ignoring the news from the BBC and Fox

They absorb their facts from Messrs Goldilocks

In this pernicious web of smears and lies

We are sowing the seeds of our own demise.

I couldn’t make it any clearer!

We’re living in the post-truth era.

Science is now completely debunked

As our way of life is now defunct.

Superstition rules as the new age is spawned

Rationality will not even be mourned.

This is the age of creationists and flat-earth

As a new age of fascism is given its birth.

I couldn’t make it any clearer!

We’re living in the post-truth era.

Opher 6.8.2018

I find it utterly chilling to look at the way our lives are being broken down to algorithms so that we can be controlled. They not only know our shopping habits but our political views, likes and dislikes, personality type, fears and hopes. They use it to manipulate us.

No election is safe. We are now targeted with information that plays on our fears. We are fed misinformation to sow doubt. It plays on our emotions and undermines our rational thought. We are told we are being swamped with rapists, terrorists and murderers so that our way of life is being deliberately destroyed. We are told that Fascists, like Tommy Robinson and Trump have the answers. Indeed, Western civilisation is under threat.

Well it is.

But not from the sources we are being told. It is under threat from the algorithms that enable these populists to control us. The threat is from the ones who want power and want our money and will stop at nothing to get it.

Who is it that profits when the West is thrown into confusion? Who is making the money? Who is rising in power? Who is telling us that everything emanating from scientists and experts is all  ‘Project Fear’ and that climate change is not real, Brexit is good for us? Who stands to gain?

Who is getting shafted?

The End for Trump??

Al Capone was finally roasted for tax violations – Trump could be the same!!

Forget the dead bodies, mafia connections, the Kremlin and criminality – it might be humble tax evasion that puts him inside where he belongs!

Former President Donald Trump’s family business and its longtime chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, have been charged by the Manhattan district attorney’s office in a case involving an array of alleged tax-related crimes.

Will Allen make a deal and spill the beans?

I hope so!!

LOCK HIM UP!!! LOCK HIM UP!!! LOCK HIM UP!!! LOCK HIM UP!!! LOCK HIM UP!!! LOCK HIM UP!!!

Poetry – It Doesn’t Matter

It Doesn’t Matter

In the land where money talks
all that matters is the bottom line.
You can bully and cheat
open a strip mine – it’ll be fine!
Money talks! The mantra of the rich.
For the poor – life’s just a bitch!
But who give a damn if you can fleece them of a cent
And pay enough bribes so the law gets bent?
One rule for them and another for me
That’s what it’s like in the land of the free!
 
It doesn’t matter how you get your hands on the stash
What misery you cause as you chop and you slash!
Winners and losers is the name of the game
And the guys that win feel no shame.
They’ve cauterised their conscience and lost their way
It’s black and white and never grey.
You fight to survive – to see another day
And that’s what it’s come to in the USA!

Opher 6.6.2018

I wrote this in response to the conservative thinking people in the USA. All that matters to them is money. They support Trump because they think he makes money. They don’t care if he is an uncouth bully. They do not care if he exploits. They do not care if he is racist and misogynistic. They are racist and misogynistic themselves. He is reflecting their mind-set. They like the way he encourages violence. They respond to the fear he generates with hate. In the land of winners and losers money is all that counts.

Trump has exploited the fear and ramped it up. The country is being swamped with illegal immigrants. The white Anglo-Saxon culture is at risk. They are under attack from Mexican invasion and Islamic terrorism. Europe is lost.

It is the same tactics that were used in Britain in the Brexit campaign. These immigrants are all terrorists, rapists and criminals – they are bringing in kids to be part of sex rings.

We have lost sight of the fact that most of these people are desperately trying to escape war zones or economic deserts where there is no hope. They just want to escape to a refuge. They want a better life for themselves and their kids. They want a quiet life. They need help.

Trump and Brexit both homed in on the same wound and pulled it open.

Poetry – Fake News!! Fake news!!

Fake News!! Fake news!!

Truth! There is no truth!

Just lies from every politician’s mouth!

Just propaganda from every website!

Fake news!! Fake News!!

Manipulated and betrayed

Lied to and used

Treated like fools

Fake news!! Fake News!!

And the world goes to ruin

In a chop and a dig.

And the creatures are murdered

With a spray and a slash.

And the climate heats up

With a flame and a roar.

As the truth went out the door!

Opher – 27.10.2018

It is the sadness of the post-truth society that the poor can be left to be exploited and the environment destroyed. All reports of the scandals are fake. There is no war, no starvation, no overpopulation, no global warming, no species extinction.

It’s all fake news. Behind it the politicians and business people prosper. They can carry out their operations with impunity.

Poetry – Crazy Lemmings

Crazy Lemmings

Crazy lemmings leaping off of cliffs.

Of common sense hardly a whiff!

Fuelled on fear, lies and hate

They’d rather drown than open the gate!

Opher – 17.8.2018

England used to be a friendly place always willing to extend the helping hand. Islamophobia and racism has been deployed by politicians eager to gain power and influence. It has unleashed a wave of fear and hate that resulted in us going for Brexit and cutting off our own noses!

Brexit has made Britain poorer already and will make us a lot poorer yet. It has made us mean-spirited and filled us with hate and fear.

Instead of solving problems we have created more of our own!!

I dislike Islam intensely. I think it is an intolerant religion.

I think we have had too much immigration too quickly.

I don’t think Brexit will help.

I do not believe that our 4.8% of Muslims are going to take over and impose sharia law on us. I do not believe they are all terrorists or rapists.

Instead of Brexit we should be focusing on integrating them so they do not become extremists. In time they will become secular.

I want to move about freely without restriction. I think there are much better ways for the EU to sort out this mass migration problem without resorting to Brexit.

Brexit will only serve to make us poorer, less powerful and peripheral.

What a stupid response – talk about lemmings jumping off cliffs!! The extreme right-wing have set an agenda that is madness!

Trump and Fascism

It is apparent to me that the wave of Islamic terrorism coupled with mass immigration caused by war and economic factors created a fear and siege mentality.

In the UK Islamic terrorism, Muslim immigration and Eastern European immigration caused a big xenophobic fear that was exploited by Farage, Cummings and Johnson to create Brexit.

In the States it was Islamic terrorism (9-11) coupled with mass immigration from central America that resulted in fear and Trump.

Populist leaders, such as Trump, Johnson, Bolsonaro, Modi, Orban and Erdogan were quick to exploit fears, ramp up division and promise easy solutions. Once in power they began taking over the democratic processes and consolidating their power. This includes suppressing votes in opposition areas, taking over the media, spilling out propaganda and controlling the machinery for the democratic process.

In the UK this involves changing boundaries, suppressing protest, controlling the tabloid press and loading the BBC with Tories. There is no way of contesting the lies and nobody is ever accountable. They lie, pour out fake news and propaganda with impunity.

In the USA Trump took over the Republican party, Used voter suppression, poured out a stream of lies and propaganda, promised walls, encouraged and condoned violence and in the final end tried to take the election by force in an insurrection,

Throughout the world this division and scapegoating has empowered the racists, xenophobes and other fascist groups.

What we are seeing is fascism in action.

In America Trump was kicked out – but only just!

He hasn’t gone away. His legacy is a large base of empowered racists, xenophobes and white supremacists. They are waiting for him to reappear. He could yet return and finish the job.

So how do you get rid of autocratic fascists who seize the mechanisms of democracy?

This wave of populist fascism has not gone away!
