Hernando’s Hideaway

“The Consuls” recorded for Hernando in Buffalo, New York. Hernando had connections with Lori Records in New York City  where he had “The Consuls” re-record at New York City’s Bell Sound what we’d recorded for him in Buffalo New York so that we could broaden our record distribution.

Russian oligarch Alexander Lebedev  bought the the British news organization, The Independent in 2010″. Lebedev’s  The Independent appears to have pushed The Guardian out of first place in the pitchforks for Trump attacks.

Time

Looking for time,
We find him nowhere
Watching clocks, nor near the sun’s way
We may subdivide his tickings
Till he’s scarcely more than air:

He who gives dimension meaning
And counting to his tether
Makes infinity his contrary.

Liar Liar

From Sunday Feb. 19 ’till Tuesday 21 or so if you put ” donald trump” into the Google box you’d get a slew of  mocking headers about President Trump’s telling everyone that Sweden has a migrant-crime problem. Many of these headers were published by the British, but Russian owned, Independent. Today, Feb. 24, the only way you can quickly get mention of Trump and Sweden online is to put Sweden into the Google box. The results seem dated yesterday Feb. 23, 2017 or earlier, and they indicate that some people don’t want anyone to know what’s actually happening that might give Sweden an image that could deter tourists. After the riots among migrants in Sweden reported Thursday morning on Canadian television, I guess a lot of people know that President Trump was not just making things up on either Feb 6, 2017, or again on February 18. But media’s journalist workers sure did a good job for a few days making people think that the president is a liar.

What President Trump Said

When I heard how everyone seemed to be laughing and scratching heads over Mr. Trump’s saying, in Florida on February 18, 2017,  that Sweden had crimes linked to migrants;  I assumed he must’ve got caught in a rhetorical wind. But I wanted to know if there might be at least a kernel of truth to his charges since I eventually learned that he said that his charges were based on something right-winger Tucker Carlson had reported on Fox News. Then I learned that Mr. Trump on Feb. 6, 2017 had earlier talked about the state of affairs he got laughed at for mentioning on Feb 18. The Atlantic on Feb.7 even did a story about his saying on Feb. 6  that the western media were not fully reporting those Swedish, migrant related incidents. So by Monday I came to see that not only was there a basis in Sweden for Trump’s statements but that there was a “tug of war”(implied in search strings,”the truth about Malmo”& “truth about Sweden”) between those who wanted to publicize and combat what President Trump was being laughed at for mentioning and those who felt that people like Trump were simply making mountains of  little hills to further their own purposes.

My first bits of information about what might be happening in Sweden in connection with migrants came from journalist Lee Roden who has written a number of articles about these matters which I’ve pasted below from under the heading “Islamist Watch”:

Title Publication Date
Gothenburg ‘one of Europe’s most segregated cities’ The Local October 28, 2016
Sweden to ban masks but not burqas at football matches The Local September 30, 2016

Space of Time

Ahead the crowd steps to the sky;
Looking from side to side,
Future’s to past as left’s t’ right.
Forward, times a line with past behind.

Where the toe tips back
Time forgets t’ trace a now.
Like a diver gulping air
Perception wavers
twixt what was ‘n’ what’s t’be.

Malmo Sweden

Before today February 20, 2017 I hadn’t heard of Malmo. Thanks to the media pounding President Trump’s getting because of his  unschooled reference to migrant linked incidents in Sweden, I now know about Malmo because of what the conservative Daily Wire says is happening in Malmo in Sweden.

I also know that somebody wants to know the truth about Malmo.
