Tube flag burningROCK ON STANDING!

This morning Tubularsock arose with this on his mind. It is something so obvious that you’d think at first, “why is it so profound?”

When we came to these shores, and Tubularsock is using “the we” in the pejorative sense here, we came as “an advanced” civilization and looked upon the indigenous peoples as “lessor than”. Something to destroy, control, “educate” and to “save” in God’s name.

And, by jove, with all the destruction our civilization has brought forth onto the indigenous peoples WE still haven’t even learned their basic teaching. WE, the more advanced, the more sophisticated, the more educated missed a fundamental principle to life itself.

How has this transpired?

Well, Tubularsock doesn’t have all day to hash this over really. And you already know. After all, many of you have allowed the education system once again to fill your small children’s minds with that fucking Thanksgiving bullshit AGAIN!

So exactly what about, “WE came and brutally slaughtered “the Indians” and took there shit”, is so difficult to explain to our kids before we gather around with our dysfunctional families in our dysfunctional society and hack up a dead turkey carcass on our dining room table? Seems like a pretty easy thing to do but WE DON’T.

Now the other day Tubularsock happened to see an interview where President Step-en-Fetch-It responded to this young journalist’s questions about WHAT is the “President” doing about the Standing Rock Sioux pipeline protest. And this gutless wonder we call a president says he’s “monitoring the situation”.

tube-free-speech

Now exactly what is there to be “monitoring”? And at what point did the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers come up with an oil pipeline that would run through ancient burial grounds of the Sioux and run along and UNDER major water sources?

Which brings us back to where we started. At what point did WE as a civilization FORGET that you don’t foul your water supply?

NO, REALLY. THINK ON IT!

NO REAL CHANGE!

Just so all of you that are upset because “As The World Turns” soap opera gave us all President Elect Tweet as President of the United States, there is STILL regular old world sanity to draw from to provide solace.

Nothing really has changed in the realm of extreme hypocrisy coming out of the U.S.

Our very own State Department is trained to maintain a very polished form of hypocrisy. And you may even marvel just how shiny it appears. Tubularsock personally recommends Bar Keepers Friend cleaner to keep down soap scum buildup. And dare say the Department of State has its full share of it while attempting to make America squeaky clean.

Just this week United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power who is pretty high on the “scum-as-you-are-list” accused 13 Syrian commanders and prison officials of responsibility for attacks on cities, residential areas and civilian infrastructure as well as acts of torture in Syria.

Now there is nothing new in that and the same old bad guys Assad and Russia were behind it all. And the fact that the U.S. is bombing Syria without any permission to be there and Russia was asked to come help Syria from being overthrown by the U.S. all seems to be lost on Samantha.

Powers may do well to read the definition of war crimes and one of those definitions centers around countries attacking other countries unprovoked. Now just who should be tried for that in Syria?

But here is the fun part for Tubularsock which makes Samantha such a riot!

She had the nerve to say aloud in front of others that, “The United States also knows where torture allegedly takes place in Syria.”

Well Samantha, the U.S. out of all the players in this conflict WOULD KNOW WHERE THE TORTURE TAKES PLACE IN SYRIA. Do you think it could be in the same locations of the “black-sites” the CIA used to torture under George W. Bush?

Funny that George W. Bush isn’t anyplace on this list you are handing out. Perhaps a bureaucratic oversight.

Now one has to wonder how we have gotten here. A few years back Assad was cooperating with Bush’s CIA to conduct torture for the U.S. and now we are wanting to try them for bombing “our side”.  And people think this Trump Thing is weird.

By now my fellow readers you know that when you are dealing with the U.S. hypocrisy it is always compounded. So the other aspect of this entire Samantha-in-fantasy-land is the International Criminal Court.

The detailed allegations seemed to be aimed at laying the groundwork for future war crimes prosecutions and could be the Obama administration’s 11th hour attempt to hold the Syrian government accountable for alleged atrocities while at the same time not noticing the American mirror image in this entire mess.

And here is the funny part, “. . . some time ago the United States backed out of being any part of the ICC because in signing into the agreement would make the U.S. responsible for its own actions and could be indicted by the ICC for crimes against humanity!

So Samantha Power is setting Syria up for crimes against humanity in a set up where the United States is immune!

AND PEOPLE THINK TRUMP IS POMPOUS?

COULD IT BE AN AMERICAN TRAIT?

Tube heading booksWHO’S ON FIRST?
Ok ……….. President Elect Tweet isn’t Laural and Hardy……… YET!
But looking at his minions …… Holy Shit, as the Pope would say.

But what does he stand for?

So far President Elect Tweet has changed his position on torture because he talked with Four Star General James N. Mattis and Mattis said, “(He) found more value in building trust and rewarding cooperation with terrorism suspects: “‘Give me a pack of cigarettes and a couple of beers, and I’ll do better.’”(NY Times)

On the link between human activity and climate change Tweet now says, “I think there is some connectivity … it depends on how much.” Now on the surface that doesn’t seem like much of a change but it is a MAJOR change from “. . . climate change was(is) a hoax fabricated by the Chinese”.

 

tube-environoment

President-elect Donald Tweet will not pursue an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Or anything else about the Clintons. This is a rather significant change of position from, “I will say this: Hillary Clinton has to go to jail, ok ? She has to go to jail, phony hit job. She’s guilty as hell.”

And then there’s OBAMACARE …….. from get rid of it to making legal changes made to President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

AND NOW Tweet is distancing himself from the alt-right movement as its white supremacist members claim his election as a boon for their agenda.
“I disavow and condemn them,” Tweet said Tuesday (11/22/16) during a wide-ranging interview with staff members of The New York Times.

AND THE WALL? Well, it may have to be scaled back a bit and just not be as long or high or maybe not at all.

And all this is where Tubularsock see some possibility of “hope and change” with President Elect Tweet ….. yes it is slight ……. very slight but a crack enough for possibly some “light” to get in.

We shall see ……… proceed but stay low because the ricochet may be risky.

But really, there is something refreshing about a person that can change direction when new information is presented and not be stopped by being wrong and refuse to change out of looking bad. On the contrary, President Elect Tweet views himself as NEVER WRONG about anything. Whatever position he holds that minute is CORRECT until it is not and then the exact opposite may be CORRECT. But DURING THE TIME he holds a position he is RIGHT!

And not only RIGHT but the GREATEST RIGHT you have ever witnessed bar none!

Now it can’t get better than that ………..

BLIND TRUST FANTASY 

There has been an outcry by many that President Elect Tweet put his businesses not just into his family’s control but place his entire business assets and investments into a blind trust.

And this has always sounded good for people who know insider deals about to happen to not be able to use that information to feather their own family nest.

And it seems like the perfect solution, doesn’t it?

Well it is a silly cover …….

Let Tubularsock give you a typical Tubularsock Example.

Tubularsock takes all his money and invests in Atomic-Ping-Pong-Balls. Yes, it is a futuristic concept which may or may not even work.

tube-munitions

Because it is a new investment “opportunity” the share price is $3.00 a share. And Tubularsock buys 500,000 shares. That means that Tubularsock’s total cost is $1 and a half million. (remember this is an example and Tubularsock’s current “funds” fall a bit short of this amount.)

Then Tubularsock goes off to Washington, D.C. as President or Senator or even a member of the House of Representatives.

And a blind trust is set up “in good faith” to show no conflict of interest. (Horse-shit, to coin an economic phrase that fits the bill.)

Now remember, this is a simple straight forward example but the idea can be perfected a number of ways and the end result is controlled wealth accumulation with the advantage of the fantasy of no conflict of interest.

So to make this example more realistic let’s take Tubularsock’s name out of the equation and in its place substitute the name of say, ahhh …. Senator McNUT.

Now Senator McNUT works the system in the Senate and gets a plum committee chairmanship. This may take a couple of years or even less depending on his value to his party but in time he is made Chairman of  the Advanced Military Systems Committee.

And because of his position and influence (due to the fact that other Senators are busy doing the same type of scam) McNUT puts forth and fast-tracks a new weapon known as APPB Munitions.

And through “deal-making” gets the Committee to vote this new futuristic weapon into existence and moves it through to passage.
Now remember, Atomic-Ping-Pong-Balls may not even work BUT this is the Federal Government and all that is needed to be said that, it is “believed” that APPB could STOP terrorism!

Of course, outside the Washington bubble Atomic-Ping-Pong-Balls stock takes a leap upward. Upon passage the stock jumps to $10 a share! OR $5 million for blind trust McNUT.

Now this continues and say Atomic-Ping-Pong-Balls actually kind-of-works. Well remember this is the Federal Government so additional contracts are given for APPB and the price per share jumps to $33 a share due to a “maybe” break threw and Senator McNUT’s investment increases to $16 million 500 thousand.

Are you getting the point. And lets say Senator McNut did this with just five defense products ……. early retirement, yes?

The manipulation is done wide open and the “blind-trust” really is a “BLIND-BLING”

And the BLIND BLING works at many levels. The Clinton Foundation is a wonderful BLIND BLING. You’ll be noticing Obummer’s speech circuit after he leaves office as how the BLIND BLING works, Michelle’s as well.

The “pay-off” comes AFTER! It is a POSTED DATED BRIBE and it is deemed A-OK with the established power elite. Hey, that is how American Democracy is done!

AND THE BEAT GOES ON ………………..

Should you worry about the SWAMP THAT TWEET’S CREATING?

FUCK YEAH!

But before the fucking clinton-obama holier than thou crescendo reaches a greater volume ….. reflect on THIS BLIND BLING CON.

Now reread Tubularsock’s thoughts …… TRUTH CAN BE FOUND IN A LOST WORLD!

DEMOCRATIC LAND FILL

Lucky for Tubularsock, in our diverse economy, a regular guy who was rejected by the American electorate for the presidency can find a part time job.

Sure, Tubularsock is still tutoring President Elect Tweet but as the new government is formed Tubularsock will be put out to pasture soon due to the reconfiguration of the “drained swamp”. Let Tubularsock remind you that SCUM rises to the top, which is being demonstrated so clearly in Washington, D.C. right now! REALLY, did you expect anything different out of either party?

FOREIGN POLICY

If there isn’t a crisis, it appears, there isn’t any news! So right there you can see that it’s still all the same no matter how much you protest.

President Elect Tweet’s transition team is like a “war zone”!

Who is in?

Who is out?

It is no surprise that “draining the swamp” is way more difficult in reality than in rhetoric and trying to keep “lobbyists” out of positions is like going to a snake farm and hoping for no snakes.

And having President Elect Tweet express that “Only he knows the finalists” to be chosen with names ricocheting around the press like firing a shotgun in a steel box doesn’t provide much stability.

Oh well, what good is a cabinet anyway when the guy shoots from the hip. Tubularsock figures it’s at least somebody he can talk to.

The best thing is getting his kids cleared for government secrets. He seems to at least trust them so in order to have open discussions and not end up like Hillary and her open-to-all internet server President Elect Tweet is protecting himself upfront.

The speculation from EVERY direction will keep this process hopping for weeks and the one interesting thing about short-attention-span-Tweet is that he will “fire” any of the “chosen ones” at a drop of a Make America Great Again hat!

But no matter, Tubularsock is conducting his third lesson directing President Elect Tweet with a step into a Foreign Policy/Domestic Policy combo. This will help Tweet understand that there is a connection with what happens outside the country and what happens inside the country. This a big step for President Elect Tweet but after all it IS our third lesson!
