LET’S WAR SOME MORE!

Well thank the Gods that THAT’S OVER!

Another 9/11 has hit the history dust bin again and we are still in the dark over just which Saudi and Carlyle Group investment scheme helped to do it.

 

But hell that is water under the bridge so really who cares anyway. Everybody is dead and buried and what in the fuck do they want, they all got a gillion dollar memorial and tourist book store!

We’ve got bigger fish to fry!

And by golly we’ll poke somebody with a stick hard enough to have them attack say like a rowboat floating next to the USS BULLSHIT and we’ll have that UNIFYING WAR each president starts to rally the citizen behind the president. NO MATTER HOW FUCKING STUPID HE HAPPENS TO BE!

And before you anal retentive Trumpites get all pushed out of shape over the above sentence, well it refers to Baby Shrub and the gaggle of assholes that occupied his administration.

Not that Orange Tweet isn’t attempting to corner the market on “STUPID” but Shrub beat him to it on this subject.

And it is true that once the “General” took over as “Chief of Staff” Orange Tweet is learning to bend over for the neocons so ALL IS GOOD in dip-shit-land.

So will it be North Korea? Russia? China? Nope, everyone is tried of hearing about them already. Boring!

 

 

No we have to have another Grenada! You remember 1983 and the proposed THREAT TO THE UNITED STATES by the Caribbean Island of Grenada, right?

Parkinson-riddled-brain-dead-Ronald-Reagan sent in 10,000 American troops to protect the U.S. against several hundred lightly armed policemen and Cuban construction workers.

The U.S. military lost 19 and incurred 116 injuries during the eight day “war” but peace came at last and Paul Scoon was reinstated as the Governor-General of Grenada who represented the monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.

And of course the American public supported the invasion even though it was a flagrant violation of international law. Because the United States is a government of laws not of men. Or so the story is told. Go figure that out.

BUT WE WON! And this was our “brave?” military’s first operation conducted after our Grand War with Vietnam which we LOST at pretty much ever criteria one could list.
So you can see how important the War With Grenada (WWG) was then. We really are winners, no really we are, and our military will kill unarmed men, women and children in any number to prove it!

So presently we have an entire 5 sided building filled with dedicated workers finding just the “right” place to attack next in the name of freedom.

Hell we need a win!

POPPY MADNESS?

Since 2002 the United States has spent $8.6 billion just for the “war” against Poppies in Afghanistan and this year (2017) poppy production is UP, UP, UP! Another great job accomplished by good ol’ America!

 

 

And the stated reason is that the Taliban, which banned poppy cultivation when it ruled Afghanistan, (you know BEFORE we attacked them and started this ENDLESS war) is now involved in running its own factories, refining the lucrative crop into morphine and heroin for exporting abroad. Mostly to Europe and Canada.

Most American heroin comes from those bad-hombres’ in Mexico!

And much like in Vietnam, the CIA is up to their chinny-chin-chins in running drugs as usual. Tubularsock might as well mention the big banks that launder the money too, so as not to leave anyone out.

Ok, just to be complete the picture, many members within the entire “democratic” Afghan government find a way to get a cut as well. Isn’t that what democracy is all about?

You see it is a Narco-state after all!

 

Afghan farmers are paid about $163 for a kilo (a little over 2 pounds) of the black sap from raw opium. Once refined the price is about $3500. But by the time it is shipped to Europe it wholesales for $45,000!

According to the United Nations in 2016, Afghanistan, which produces 80 percent of the world’s opium, made around 4,800 tonnes of the drug bringing in revenues of three billion dollars.

 

NOW DO NOT WORRY!

The U.S. has worked diligently to coerce local poppy farmers to shift their crop from poppy cultivation to “legal” alternatives such as wheat, barley, mustard and melons.

The result was that those “legal” crops are more difficult and expensive to successfully cultivate and yield much less at market than did their previous illicit poppy plants.

As one farmer put it, “If we plant two bags of wheat, then we’ll have just enough money to buy the seeds to plant another two bags of wheat. […] We’re going backwards. Of course we’re angry at the government.” (Common Sense For Drug Policy 9/6/17)

Of course, as would be predicted, those areas that were driven from poppy production in turn are the same areas where terrorism activity increased.

Surprised? Push people to the wall and you get a response.

All in all, the U.S., lost the Vietnam War, and has LOST the war in Afghanistan. And yet Orange Tweet Trump just like Step-en-fetch-it Obummer before him has entered deeper into the quagmire.

And all that leads to this future conversation: “Mommy why did daddy die in the war? Oh honey, like I’ve told you before, to protect the Opium Trade.”

So now you understand why the poppy is used as a symbol on “Memorial Day”!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HOW TO SPEAK FOREIGN

Just how many Russians are YOU actually friends with? Syrians, Pakistanis, Germans, Iranians, Cubans?

EVEN Ohioans?

Not many, if you are an American, Tubularsock would guess. But so many people have an opinion about “Others”.

According to what “news” reports one reads, how much better or less of an understanding do you really have regarding people you have never met?

Same goes for religious groups, Jews, Muslim, Christian, Buddhists, Taoists. What do you really know about any of these religious groups? Really!

Most people don’t KNOW much about even their “own” religion let alone about someone else’s.

In most all these cases we all have “judgments” about other people and religions but we don’t really know much at all about them in truth.

Why is that?

Doesn’t that seem strange to you?

Our nation will go off and KILL these people but we don’t even know them.

What is that all about?

Let’s say you are walking down a street and you see an Ohioan walking toward you.
How do you prepare yourself for the approaching encounter?

Do you pretend you don’t see them and pass on by. Most likely the best idea.

But after reading this from Tubularsock you may “reach out” and engage in a conversation.

Well a sure bet is something like this: Hi, so the Ohio state reptile is the black racer.

Oh sure, you could continue with the added information that the state approved the choice in 1995 but that may be a little too much.

You know, you might look like you are trying too hard.

Be careful of your wallet. Perhaps reaching into your pocket and just hold it as a precaution.

This tactic is well advised while dealing with Ukrainians as well.

You’d perhaps want to continue your conversation with references to the Aesculus glabre

to appear more intimate using a reference to your knowledge of their nickname

or you may just leave that for another day and just hurry on your way.

So you see, it is good to know things about “foreign cultures” so as not to be so judgmental.

Well, that is all the time we have today with Tubularsock’s continuing series:

HOW TO SPEAK FOREIGN.

A TUBULARSOCK EXCLUSIVE:
NEWS BEFORE IT HAPPENS!

Ok as usual, Tubularsock has an insider’s perspective into the current administration being that as Secretary of the Deplorables Tubularsock is on the “right” side of the right government policies of The Super-Bigly Great Orange One!

Rumor has it that Tubularsock has positioned himself in the current West Wing of the White House in the boiler-room where he has control of the heating and cooling of the building. Being the ONLY member of the current administration that knows the secret codes for the indoor environment of the White House puts Tubularsock in an enviable power position.

So when it was reviled by the New York Signs, a hostile progressive publication, that the
Secretary of the Deplorables had been subpoenaed by Robert Mueller much anticipation was anticipated. And as that anticipated anticipation grew the left-stream-press concluded that Russia was involved!

 

As Tubularsock, “. . . first hand coverage, second hand news”, a non-biased news outlet has reported through an official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the media, that Russia may have a relationship with the Secretary of the Deplorables but this was denied by the administration.

However it was noted by a former Secret Service agent who did not wish to be identified that some ties with the Russian Government may be true. Some documentation was procured from this individual as seen below.

 

“I hasten to point out that in no sense do I claim the ideas I am submitting are a real thing. They constitute a theory, not a thesis”, stated the former Secret Service agent.

But an American official familiar with the talks with Mueller, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly stated, “some pictures are really worth a thousand words”.

Yet the investigation conducted by the sharp-eyed-reporters from Tubularsock, “. . . first hand coverage, second hand news”, a non-biased news outlet has produced an actual photograph that may add some light to the Trump-Tube Russian connection.

 

Now sure Felix Sater has Russian connections! Hell, he’s Russian!

When asked, Tubularsock, Trump’s Secretary of the Deplorables, stated, “Felix Sater is a Russian-American gangster of the old school. You know, a classical American tradition type Eliot Ness gangster. It is this solid American criminal tradition that our President believes in …… make  America Great again!”

Felix Sater has deep financial connections to Trump and to Russia. Felix Sater has been a friend of Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen since childhood, and is an important Trump business partner who worked out of Trump Tower.

But funny, when Donald was asked about his connections with Felix, Trump said, “I’m not that familiar with him.”

Which would be expected for Trump to say especially after his associate Felix Sater, described his ambitions in emails to Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen.

In those emails Sater states, “Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.” (New York Times … for real!)

So we all have, so far, three possible Russian connections with Trump.

The first is the meeting in Trump Tower between Russian agents and Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner.

The second connection is the attempt by Republican operative Peter W. Smith to obtain Hillary Clinton’s emails through Russian hackers. According to The Wall Street Journal “Robert Mueller is investigating Michael Flynn’s connection to this operation”.

And the third connection is Felix Sater.

Looks like a full plate.

 

But in truth the Russian connection is there but it is mostly bullshit. The real deal is going to be the evidence that is being collected on financial crimes, including potential money laundering that is where Donald and his family are going to go down!
