our little aussie echo chamber... while trump prophetises hell to pay for those who don't like the USA...

echo chamber

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has said "further pressure" will be brought on North Korea through United Nations sanctions, effectively brushing aside Trump administration remarks that the UN route has been exhausted.

Speaking from the UN General Assembly gathering in New York, Ms Bishop held fast to her long-standing view that sanctions can be effective and, combined with other forms of pressure, can still deter North Korea from its nuclear path. She said it could take "weeks or months" for the sanctions to make their full impact.

In his first address to United Nations, US President Donald Trump has threatened North Korea with total destruction if it attacks the US or its allies. He also blasted Iran, Venezuela, Cuba and Syria.



If forced to defend itself and its allies, the US “will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,”Trump said in his remarks at the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly on Tuesday. He also called North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un a “Rocket Man” on a suicide mission.

small scourges and a big one...

The United Nations General Assembly has been given a double dose of Donald Trump unfiltered.

Yes, the tone was relatively measured, but the language used was characteristically blunt.

It's something rarely seen in the centre of global diplomacy, and while several people would have helped write the speech there's no doubt it reflected the President's core views.

"Our Government's first duty is to its people, to our citizens — to serve their needs, to ensure their safety, to preserve their rights, and to defend their values," he said, pushing US sovereignty.

"As President of the United States, I will always put America first."

And then he went on the attack.

"The scourge of our planet today is a small group of rogue regimes that violate every principle on which the United Nations is based," Mr Trump told the UN.

Many people think that the biggest scourge on the planet today is the Trump Empire — a US Pentagon Machine eager to use its death-sticks on someone who farts above the tolerated decibels... And all will be best in the best of the world... Poor sods. Idiots.

raising the temperature...

The United Nations isn’t the venue one would expect for threatening war. Yet that’s what President Trump did in his first address to the General Assembly.

Mr. Trump’s performance had echoes of President George W. Bush’s infamous “axis of evil” demonizing of Iran, North Korea and Iraq in 2002. This time, Iraq was spared, having disappeared from Mr. Trump’s enemies list. Iran came across as “reckless,” savage and not to be trusted despite an Obama-era agreement to halt Iran’s nuclear weapons program. North Korea was even more clearly in the president’s cross hairs. He warned that he would “totally destroy North Korea” to defend the United States and its allies, and he again disparaged North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, as “Rocket Man.” He said Mr. Kim was on a “suicide mission for himself and for his regime.”

In all this fury, before a world body whose main purpose is the peaceful resolution of disputes, there was hardly a hint of compromise or interest in negotiations. It’s a telling contrast to President Barack Obama’s approach to many of the same problems in the same setting in 2009. Mr. Obama warned the General Assembly that “North Korea and Iran threaten to take us down this dangerous slope” and must be “held accountable” if “they put the pursuit of nuclear weapons ahead of regional stability.” But he also said he respected “their rights as members of the community of nations” and was “committed to diplomacy that opens a path to greater prosperity and more secure peace for both nations if they live up to their obligations.”

Like Mr. Obama, other presidents have used this setting to talk sternly to adversaries and exhort the world body to do more to confront international challenges. Mr. Trump’s dark tone and focus seemed a significant deviation, not least his relentlessly bellicose approach to North Korea. “No one,” he said, “has shown more contempt for other nations and for the well-being of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea.”

Oh mighty Goddess, Eirene, please remove our Aussie Mal Trumble from the list of Trump's admirers, followers, arse-lickers, grovellers, lackeys, backscratchers, doormats, parasites, minions and warmongers — and tell that woman Julie Isabel to zip up her big trap in which the serpents of war are wiggling with impatience...

... to genocide...


It can’t get more outrageous. US President Donald Trump stood in front of the United Nations and openly threatened unilateral war and genocide. It’s a sign of the times that such criminal rhetoric is so casually spouted by the world’s biggest military state.

When American leaders address the UN General Assembly, people are generally used to hearing a litany of falsehoods about world events and narcissistic deceptions over America’s global role.

But when Trump made his debut speech on Tuesday, it marked, in addition to the usual American delusions, an unprecedented embrace of criminal militarism.

The nadir in his 40-minute rant came when Trump said the US would “totally destroy” North Korea – if it threatened America or its allies. The qualifier is a threadbare legal justification. It’s also just a cynical excuse for American aggression.

The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” said Trump. Mocking North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, he added: “Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.

Trump also called for forceful confrontation – regime change – against Iran, which he vilified as a “corrupt, murderous dictatorship.” He made similar veiled threats against Venezuela and its “socialist dictator” President Nicolas Maduro.

International war crimes lawyer Christopher Black said Trump’s speech amounted to a stunning self-indictment. The Canadian-based attorney said the American president’s words were a shockingly explicit repudiation of UN principles and international law on several counts.

At least, The Donald so far has only "threatened" — apart from bombing a Syrian airforce base under false pretences. The Woman Clinton did not make any threat, she just went and bombed Libya...

swearing allegiance to the oaf...


Leaders from around the world have descended on New York for United Nations meetings, fancy parties, ringing speeches about helping the poor — and a big dose of hypocrisy.

And — finally! — this is one area where President Trump has shown global leadership.

If there were an award for United Nations chutzpah, the competition would be tough, but the medal might go to Trump for warning that if necessary, “we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” There were gasps in the hall: A forum for peace was used to threaten to annihilate a nation of 25 million people.

There also was Trump’s praise for American humanitarian aid to Yemen. Patting oneself on the back is often oafish, but in this case it was also offensive. Yemen needs aid because the U.S. is helping Saudi Arabia starve and bomb Yemeni civilians, creating what the U.N. says is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. In other words, we are helping to create the very disaster that we’re boasting about alleviating.

It was also sad to see Trump repeatedly plug “sovereignty,” which tends to be the favored word of governments like Russia (even as it invades Ukraine and interferes in the U.S. election) and China (as it supports corrupt autocrats from Zimbabwe to Myanmar).

And our little big mob of Kanbra dirt worms stick to the coiffed oaf like a dag (dried up excrement) to a sheep's arse... Please note the lies from this reporter's OPINIONS. Russia has not invaded Ukraine and has not interfered with the US Presidential elections despite all efforts by the brigades of the "resistance" and lawyers to prove the contrary. So far not a single proof has been unearthed after nearly two years, but one can only hope that by investigating 3000 adverts on Facebook and investigating Paul Manafort, with a NEGATIVE result, the matter will be laid to rest. 

And please explain the difference between Ireland and Crimea...


the dotard and the mad rocketman...


PRO TIP FOR educators helping teens with their SAT prep: Try to provoke world leaders to fling 50-cent words at President Trump. (Not like "G-Unit," though. The other kind.) Last night, after Trump announced that he would be imposing new sanctions on North Korea, Kim Jong-un called the president a “deranged US dotard” that he promised to “tame … with fire.” The burn sounded like Eminem had gotten his hands on a copy of McGuffey's Reader, and it immediately enflamed the internet to find out more about what might just be the new#covfefe.

The Twitter reaction followed a predictable cycle: “LoL ‘dotard,’” —> “Oh snap, that’s a real word!” —> “LoL, but ‘dotard’ tho.” Searches for the term hit peak interest literally overnight (the region that looked up the term the most was, unsurprisingly, Washington, DC). Within minutes, Merriam-Webster's ever-on-the-ball Twitter feed had offered a definition. This morning, the New York Times published a story noting the word had been used only 10 times in its pages since 1980. Other outlets pointed out that it was a word favored by Shakespeare and J.R.R. Tolkien. (Before we go any further, here’s what you came here for: A dotard is an old person, someone who has become weak or senile.)

In my cartoon of the latest Zutbots series, I praise the next instalment of Artificial Intelligence. We need it desperately when the best we can do as world leader is Donald Trump and "Rocketman". As Elon Musk and Vladimir Putin argue about the merit of Artificial Intelligence versus the human brain, with Elon being against it and Putin being cautious about AI, the AI family of Zutbots of course knows that AI is far superior than the resultant of human maximum political expression: The Donald. What can be more frightful than this?... Rocketman?...

Of course we could carry on and discuss the merit of having had La Madam Warmonger Clinton instead, but though cleverer than Trump, she could even be more dangerous to humanity. Artificial Intelligence, now winning most games, including those of chance, has the potential to take us to the next level of understanding:


We’ve been blessed that the word has been saved by an imbecile... But for how long? Trump has protected us from the dangerous promised pyres of Hillary, by being an ignorant of reality and by being a fudger of tweeting fakes. But there is a time limit on our blessed luck. “Ignorance is bliss” has some drawbacks as it tends to turn all of us into morose morons rather than happy idiots in the long run...

Politics as played by Artificial Intelligence has better chances of giving us the future we deserve.

— all humans are dumb, corrupted by various philosophies that have no understanding of reality.

— Politics, including democracy, are a reflection of missunderstanding of the human condition.

— delegating brainfarts to make our choices is a dumb process and far removed from proper democracy.

— compressed hierachical decision making of government leads to wrong (often corrupt) choices and actions.

— Artificial Intelligence is the closest entity to reality, when programmed with information void of interpretations

— Artificial Intelligence can give us better answers to our dippy problems — answers that we can use to improve the quality of our life without the need of “big brother” and without the concept of “sin” kicking us in ther arse every five minute. Artificial Intelligence processes should be based on scientific observations with an added component of compassion, leading to new improve philosophical outcomes with imagination. With its far bigger memorisation possibility of precedents AI will guide us to the "promised land".
