Tube cafe heading



Tubularsock was busy today, in my top floor corner office in my underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA, kicking extra gold doubloons on the floor to the stack under my desk.

After-all it is Wednesday. 

And what do you know. It just happened that last week acting Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk ordered 33 tonnes of Ukrainian gold to be transferred to the United States so it could be safe.

Boy, Tubularsock feels better already!

You remember Arseny, right? He’s the Prime Minister that the United States picked to run the NEW government of Ukraine.

Counter that with Crimea taking A VOTE of the people  to see what direction they wanted to go in forming a new government. Those sneaky Russians!

Now this transfer has been reported in the Ukrainian press but it seems that the National Bank of Ukraine, the Ukrainian Embassy in DC and the Ukrainian mission to the UN in NYC all seem not to know. 



When the U.S. State Department was ask they referred all gold transfer questions to the Federal Reserve of New York and they are so secretive about their gold storage and trading activities that they won’t say. And what does that say about power when the United States State Department has to defer to the Central Bankers. Hmmm.

But those who seem to know the Fed’s banking practices feel that the Ukrainian gold has been delivered safely to vaults in China under U.S./UK bullion bank contractual delivery obligations, where it will be locked away for centuries.

The Ukraine sovereign wealth transfer will be counted as partial “collateral” for a fresh round of International Monetary Fund, United States Federal Reserve and European Central Bank paper debt that is currently being organized for dumping into the Ukraine.

Once their gold is gone and replaced with interest debt Ukraine will be placed on that austerity program that Central Banks love so much which means debt slavery is their future FOR- EVER!

Next, corporate takeover of the “natural resources” and all Ukrainians will start to enjoy their new lives under the Neo-Nazis government picked by the United States FOR THE PEOPLE. Hey, didn’t you know …….. that’s how American Democracy works.

Tube no BS heading

Last week l.l. frederick ( reminded Tubularsock on a comment she made on Tubularsock’s post “THE RUSSIAN TAKE-OVER” about the Cavafy poem, Waiting For The Barbarians” .

I hadn’t read that poem in years so I traced it down and Tubularsock felt that you may wish to ponder this poem a bit. It is not that you don’t already know the external/internal enemy concept but Tubularsock feels it is so wonderfully presented in Cavafy’s poem.

Waiting for the Barbarians

By Constantine Cavafy (1864-1933), translated by Edmund Keeley

What are we waiting for, assembled in the forum?

The barbarians are due here today.

Why isn’t anything happening in the senate?

Why do the senators sit there without legislating?

Because the barbarians are coming today.

What laws can the senators make now?

Once the barbarians are here, they’ll do the legislating.

Why did our emperor get up so early,

and why is he sitting at the city’s main gate

on his throne, in state, wearing the crown?

Because the barbarians are coming today

and the emperor is waiting to receive their leader.

He has even prepared a scroll to give him,

replete with titles, with imposing names.

Why have our two consuls and praetors come out today

wearing their embroidered, their scarlet togas?

Why have they put on bracelets with so many amethysts,

and rings sparkling with magnificent emeralds?

Why are they carrying elegant canes

beautifully worked in silver and gold?

Because the barbarians are coming today

and things like that dazzle the barbarians.

Why don’t our distinguished orators come forward as usual

to make their speeches, say what they have to say?

Because the barbarians are coming today

and they’re bored by rhetoric and public speaking.

Why this sudden restlessness, this confusion?

(How serious people’s faces have become.)

Why are the streets and squares emptying so rapidly,

everyone going home so lost in thought?

Because night has fallen and the barbarians have not come.

And some who have just returned from the border say

there are no barbarians any longer.

And now, what’s going to happen to us without barbarians?  

     head in holeThey were, those people, a kind of solution.


This is something you’d probably wouldn’t do on your own but Tubularsock suggests that you print it out and read it aloud three or four times (or even more) until you get the timing down for yourself.

Sure, you can do this so no one else can see or hear you ……. but do it for the fun of it.

Tubularsock found for himself a much more powerful feeling from this poem than just reading it silently off the computer. Really, try it.

Just Say'en

Tubularsock likes to pace the room while reading and change tonality until it is more like an oratory for myself. And the power of this work comes forth.

As long as we as a people can be maneuvered by the power structure that there is an ENEMY out there that we need to be protected from, then we’ll continue these constant wars. This works well in the divide and conquer technique and those in power (even though a small number) keeps the masses in chains of fear.

Now Tubularsock knows that YOU know this but so often we are in overwhelm that we forget it. DON’T! It will keep you from thinking that you’re the crazy one!

Peace ………..

Tube Heading Ukraine

Well, here Tubularsock goes again. There seems to be some confusion with this entire Ukrainian thing. So lets put it this way.

Lets say Russia got some money together and started to influence Mexico.

And using that Russian money a group of disgruntled Mexicans and some hired “friends of Mexico” helped to overthrow the democratically elected government of Mexico.

And then lets say the Russian Government picked the new leader of the NEW government and using its influence helped to choose the cabinet of the new government.

And then this “NEW” leader of Mexico was invited to Moscow to pal around with Putin.

And then Russian banks loaned money to stabilize the Mexican economy putting Mexico heavily in interest debt to Russian banks.

And then Russian corporations moved into Mexico to “privatize” Mexico’s natural resources and move the profits out of Mexico.

And then Russia thought it may be a good idea to build a missile defense system along the U.S. – Mexican boarder so as to protect Mexico from . . . . oh, Tubularsock doesn’t know, say Canada.

What would be the response from the United States?xplow copy

So as you read the American press about this issue reflect upon Tubularsock’s little story above and it might open your eyes to the SLANT coming at you. It is good to keep in mind that the maimed stream media is there to keep you propagandized NOT INFORMED.

And of course there is fucking Dick Cheney ……… When in the fuck is the press going to stop asking Dick Cheney about ANYTHING?Cheney evil

But, oh no, there he was on FACE THE NATION! The only time Tubularsock wants to see Dick Cheney face the nation is at his FIRING SQUAD for war crimes!

And the first thing out of his mouth was, “I worry when we begin to address the crisis, the first thing we do is take options off the table.”

And the key option according to Dick is “. . . saying ‘no military”.

Please, oh please …….. one favor for Tubularsock …… whoever donated that new heart to Dick ……. take it back, NOW!

And then like the shit always rises to the top of the tank, Condoleezza Rice gives her precious opinion in the Washington Post.

The woman who gave the ok for the CIA to torture people is someone you are going to believe let alone have any respect?

Condi jest

But there she was and if you dig real bull-shit read it but the part that Tubularsock loved the best is Condi’s statement, “Authorizing the Keystone XL pipeline and championing natural gas exports would signal that we intend to . . .” challenge Russia’s oil prices and lower their sales to affect the Kremlin’s budget.

Wow, so the XL propaganda of lowering gas prices in the U.S. is really what it is …….. propaganda! The XL pipeline IS FOR EXPORT OIL ONLY and if and when Russia would be affected is one of those “pipe-dreams”!

She babbles on and on but like Dick, Condi wants to deploy missile defense, announce air defense exercises with the Baltic states and move a U.S. destroyer to the Black Sea to BOLSTER OUR POSITION.

Maybe Condi didn’t get the memo that we started the whole thing.

Somehow if the United States pokes you in the eye with a stick it is somehow different than if Russia pokes you in the eye with a stick. The part that is always not noticed in the minds of Dick and Condi and their ilk is the result of the guy that gets the stick in his eye. That is NOT their concern because the U.S. ONLY sticks you in the eye for GOOD, JUST, and NOBEL reasons ……. unlike those Russians.

                                                                                                                                ANY QUESTIONS?

No Vladimir Tube heading


You know for all the things that Adolf Hitler did why drag his name through the proverbial mud continually. The actions of Obummer, Bush, bin Laden, Gaddafi, Pol Pot, Saddam Insane, Putin, and god knows who else have been bounced off that poor son-of-a-bitch.

Not that the entire above stated batch of fuck-ups and assholes don’t need to be shown for the evil fucks they were or are depending on their present existence but come on!

Now we have Hillary Clinton comparing Putin entering Ukraine to protect Russians in the Ukraine with Hitler entering Eastern Europe to protect German citizens there. Like the U.S. has never used THAT tactic before!

But for all this bull-shit about Hitler she has neglected to notice (or more truthfully mention) that the new “declared government” of the Ukraine which the U.S. has helped to create and back is a Neo-Nazi far right pack of hooligans. They will work so well with “Hitler-Obummer”, don’t you think?   

You see even though the N.Y. Times has called this overthrow  “another flowering of democracy” what we have here is a staged covert operation which has put in place a new government which is filled with NEO-NAZIS. Now that is something that Adolf could get behind and it looks like so can Hillary. Our new Neo-Nazi-Bitch!

The Neo-Nazi party in the Ukraine is called the Svoboda. And you are going to hear a lot about these fucks in the next few weeks but not in the maimed stream press. It is interesting to note here that the term “Neo-Nazi” has been left out of the American press stories. It’s like, “if it walks like a duck, if it quacks like a duck then …..” but without using the term duck.

Within the Ukrainian Cabinet, Andriy Parubiy, the co-founder of the Neo-Nazi Svoboda Party was appointed to oversea a key position which oversees the Ministry of Defense, the Armed Forces, Law Enforcement, National Security and Intelligence. Oh joy …. Tubularsock sees no trouble there!

So how is it that Putin is the “Hitler” in this situation?

Hillary Clinton supported the Iraq War and John Kerry supported the Iraq war and Obama supported the Iraq war from the slippery eel point of view.

And now Putin is Hitler? Hypocrisy as thick as Democrats on the corporate re-election gravy train.

No. When the smoke screen is lifted Putin may even come out looking like the “good guy” in this fiasco and he’s not really a Mr. Nice Guy here.

There is plenty of kleptocracy to go around for everyone.

As the West takes control of the Ukraine the Western-banksters are LOANING (this is not aid!) eleven billion dollars and the first payback will be on the backs of the poor because the economic austerity plan cuts Ukrainian pensions from $160 to $80 so that Western-banksters who lent money to Ukraine can be repaid.

Isn’t fucking flowering democracy grand!

“The austerity plan will cut social services, funds for education, layoff government workers, devalue the currency, thus raising the prices of imports which include Russian gas, thus electricity, and open Ukrainian assets to takeover by Western corporations.” (Paul Craig Roberts)

You see it is important to get the Ukrainian society to march in that locked-stepped-goose-step that the Nazis are known for and be happy cheerful people.

Hail Tube

Heil Hitler! Thank God America is coming Home! Isn’t that what Corporate-America is really about?

Ahhh, Oh John. Excuses’ me John!

Once again, Tubularsock is getting confused. You mean to tell Tubularsock, John ….. that a country just can’t go into another country with a preemptive strike?

Damn! Tubularsock was just warming up to that entire concept and now it’s called “an incredible act of aggression”?

Wow, maybe Tubularsock was correct in his “Old-Think”. When an-attack-on-a-sovereign-nation was considered WRONG!

Oh well. These are modern times ……… it is just so difficult to keep up with all the definitions.

“Fearing that Europe’s borders were being rewritten by force, world leaders rushed to find a diplomatic solution to reverse what had already happened on the ground: Russia captured the Black Sea peninsula (Crimea) on Saturday without firing a shot.” (AP)

Maybe that’s the problem ……… “without firing a shot” …….. 

When we hit Baghdad we “shocked and awed them” and the Russian took Crimea without firing a shot …….. what the fuck is wrong with the Russians! There is a certain protocol when one preemptive strikes. Damn Russians!

And Obomber talked with Putin for 90 minutes and told him of his “DEEP CONCERN” over, “Russia’s clear violation of Ukrainian sovereignty.”

And the best part is Obomber’s warning that Russia’s “. . . continued violation of international law will lead to greater political and economic isolation.”

Ahhh, international law?

Oh, we are respecting international law again?

Bring the drones home?

Wow, things are improving after-all.

And what is this bull shit that the Associated Press story intimated? “Fearing that Europe’s borders were being rewritten by force” now what in the fuck is that about …….

Some kind of AP dream world? Borders HAVE ALWAYS been drawn by fat-old-white-men who have no knowledge about what they are cutting and slicing up except their self or nationalist interests! WTF? Just look at Africa or Asia for your examples.

OH PLEASE, Tubularsock is sorry to break this to you but BORDERS ARE ARBITARILY made up, PERIOD!

So the U.S. is jumping up and down about Russian activity in the Ukraine and the way Russia is stifling democracy but who has caused all this unrest?

Well, come to find out that western NGO’s with the backing of the U.S. Government are involved in what they call regime change in the Ukraine. You know, bringing “democracy” to the people along with American capitalism and American influence.

So who is causing Ukrainian unrest? The United States ……… such the surprise. 

And guess who is offering up economic assistance “of a major sort” to Ukraine? Well John Kerry says ……… the United States. Now aren’t we grand!

Kerry was all over Sunday interview programing. Enough that Tubularsock would have been looking for ANY football game to watch if he had a TV. And Tubularsock hates fucking football!

Kerry was on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” NBC’s “Meet the Press” and ABC’s “This Week.”

Yes, all maimed stream press outlets to be sure ……..

But Tubularsock finds hope in all this. It gives all those dumb fucks in the think tanks new room to regurgitate all that Cold War shit they know so well. 

You know, bolster the missile defense systems, potential U.S. budget cuts to Army units based in Germany also could be slowed, to prevent a catastrophic erosion of stability and democracy from creeping across Europe and the White House may have to abandon the policy shift to Asia — its attempt to boost America’s military, diplomatic and economic presence there — to refocus on Russia’s threat.

The Russians move to protect THEIR interests and all of a sudden this means “a catastrophic erosion of stability and democracy creeping across Europe” who is kidding who? 

Yet, Tubularsock isn’t scared ……… I’m going to go out and buy Pussy Riot’s new album. That way I’ll be ready for the Russian take-over!
