TRUMP NON-FAKEISH NEWS

Now who can you trust with your news information in today’s ALTURNUT news?

Well there is ONLY ONE clears source!

Why not go to the BOTTOM OF THE BARREL where all news ends up in a brine of truth that ONLY the Tubularsock Unbiased News Service can interpret for you.

Join all the other lost news junkie souls and start Jonesing on the truth!

THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OR ADVERTISEMENT FOR TUNS,LTD.

It is a testimonial of truth …….. hey, Trust Tubularsock …….. he’s deplorable!

TRUMPTASTIC

It is true that Tubularsock is sitting on his underground deck which is a stones throw from his top floor corner office in Tubularsock’s underground bunker overlook Washington D.C. from Oakland CA. (see Bunker Tour)

Tubularsock does much of his writing from this vantage-point and today is no exception.

So let’s wonder why it has TAKEN THREE YEARS to start to replace Flint, Michigan’s corroded water pipes.

Just in case you have forgotten, three years ago it was discovered that the city’s government, in order TO SAVE MONEY, switched water suppliers from Detroit to the Flint River.

But those same city government officials failed to treat the water with an anti-corrosive agent and by not doing so they proceeded to corrode the lead pipes and thereby poisoning the residents.

Which led to campaign slogans for the next election like, “Vote For Me You’ll Be Dead In A Week”! Ok, maybe not.

So for three years Flint has been drinking and cooking with bottled water. And then last summer scientists (none that lived in Flint) declared that the water was good enough for bathing and hand washing BUT NOT for consumption.

And then this March, Flint residents were expected to start paying the FULL COST for their water even if they can’t drink it! And to top that, 8000 residents are being held responsible FOR NOT PAYING FOR TOXIC WATER by having “tax-liens-for-unpaid-water-bills!

Now think about this. The State of Michigan has agreed (by court order) to put up $97 million to replace any lead or galvanized steel pipes for at least 18,000 homes. And to entitle citizens to have their water tested four times a year as well as access to free bottled water and filters.

It has taken three years and a court battle just to START to rectify this problem.

CAN YOU SAY INFRASTRUCTURE? Not if Orange Tweet doesn’t create jobs that save lives rather than kill people. Donnie has lost his way already just as Shrub and Obummer did before him. Rebuilding America is just economically impossible if over 60% of our borrowed money go to blow people up. INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENT WILL NOT HAPPEN!

BUT in the fiscal year of 2016 the U.S. Government spent $654.5 million on Hellfire Missiles alone. Which have all blown up so ………

And Every hour in 2016, taxpayers in United States paid $116,063 for Predator and Reaper Drones.

AND FOR WHAT? All the wars we have started are still going on so when Orange Tweet calls somebody a looser he may want to look at the State of the Nation he is supposed to be leading.

The ONLY comfort one can draw from all of this is Donnie is as stupid as the country he Tweets from. A guy that can’t even tweet correctly as “covfefe” now has proven.

Man! The fucker can’t even tweet correctly any more. Has anybody checked for lead pipes in the White House lately?

BOW WOW GROOMING

OYG! (OH YOUR GOD!) And Trump criticized Obummer for bowing to the fucking
Saudis?

Donald get hold of yourself! Oh, on second thought, maybe not.

A 110 BILLION DOLLAR DEAL FOR “defense” of Saudi Arabia.

A White House Official said, “The deal will work to increase Saudi Arabia’s defense capabilities, bolstering equipment and services in the face of extreme terrorist groups . . .”

The Saudi Arabians are the main funders of extreme terrorists groups in the Middle East and they support terror & Wahhabi Salafist ideology fueling al-Qaeda/ISIS.

All that Shia Law crap and the cutting off of heads are things practiced by Saudi Arabia!

But Trump has succumbed to the Deep State war machine and the rest will be history.

And now Orange Tweet has shifted from, “We’re having problems with the Muslims” and pushed for a Muslim ban to the new dawn of “shared interests” with Muslims in the stamping out terrorism. And not a word about “radical Islamic terrorism,” or “radical Islam”.

And Donald puffed all up with, “That was a tremendous day. Tremendous investments in the United States. Hundreds of billions of dollars of investments into the United States and jobs, jobs, jobs.”

CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE THE EXCITEMENT OF THE COAL MINERS IN SOUTH CAROLINA!

The fact that Orange Tweet’s attention-span can’t be maintained much past the length of a tweet makes it apparent that when he discovered that the relationship between China and North Korea was more complex than he had imagined he was taken back a bit. The boy lacks knowledge of the world and of history and of the political implications of his own actions.

They have him dancing on the string so far in this current trip but Tubularsock can not believe that he can last the full nine days. He’s followed the telepromter so far but come on. He has got to go off. If he doesn’t then the “deep state” has molded Tweet in record time. Which will then only prove that the brainless are an easy mark for the CIA.

You see, once again George Carlin is correct. “It’s a big club and you ain’t in it!

So ok America, go back to sleep. It will be taken care of without your assistance EXCEPT your continued support of the BULL SHIT!

PRESSTITUTES PERSONIFIED!

Once again, American Journalism is not only lacking but just doesn’t exist …. if it ever did really, to tell the truth.

We can all recall the famous dictum, “You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war” spouted by William Randolph Hearst.

You see, Hearst’s reporter, the famed illustrator Frederic Remington wanted to come home from Cuba in 1897 because nothing was happening …. so he sent a cable to Hearst stating, “Everything quiet.  There is no trouble here.  There will be no war.  Wish to return.”

And Hearst’s response was the above pictures-war statement.

And if you look at this briefly it really provided a template for “GOING TO WAR” ever since. Seriously! Every war since, the precursor, always and still is false, sensational news that prepares the public for war! Oh, a well placed, dead mutilated kid, is a must!

Perfect, really!

You see, Hearst grasped onto the Cuban revolt against Spain in 1895 and saw it as a way to increase his New York Journal readership and pull readers from his rival the New York World.

Hearst’s tactic was to run increasingly sensational stories. TRUE OR NOT! And he went with stories of violence, sex, catastrophe, and mayhem which later became characterized by the term “yellow journalism”.

And quickly to put this historical adventurism of Hearst in context to our current Syrian Chimera, Hearst was able to actually corral the public into believing that the sinking of the USS Maine (which, by the way, blew up from unknown causes, maybe a coal fire) was blamed on Spanish treachery by the New York Journal. Within three months, the United States was at war with Spain in what became known as the Spanish-American War.

And “Remember the Maine, to Hell with Spain!” became the American public’s sentiment promoted by Hearst’s paper vigorously publishing stories that helped create and foster those feelings.

See the parallel? DAH!

The FACT that “yellow journalism” is the major type of journalism left today goes a long way in explaining why the general public is just so plain trusting and stupid.

True, it may not be the only reason for this stupidity but it definitely promotes it!

SAVING YOU SYRIAN TIME

Tubularsock has spent HIS TIME reading EVERYTHING about Syria and following EVERY STEP Rex Tillerson, our new Secretary of State, has taken with the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

And Tubularsock has done this as a favor to YOU!

As an American citizen YOU don’t really have the time to actually dig around in the GREATER-UNDRAINED-SWAMP, so Tubularsock has done it for you.

So …….. if you can get off your insane cell phone and tuck your tweets aside fold up your Reddit, bend and stuff your snapchat and file your Facebook profile for just a second Tubularsock will BOTTOM-LINE it all for you!

The U.S. and Russia have met to discuss Syria. And all YOU have to do is LOOK at Rex’s and Serg’s connection, their sincere eye contact, their heartfelt camaraderie. IT TELLS IT ALL.

ANY QUESTIONS?

BULLIES, BULLIES, BULLIES

Now Tubularsock likes the Russians. Oh sure, Vlad’s a shit but look what “we’ve” got for leadership. Ok, leadership isn’t exactly correct when the White House looks more like a cage fight with no holds barred!

But this entire Russian baiting is just the neocons attempting to drive smoke up Trump’s ass.

Now that is not to say that Trump is some innocent bystander. He’s not. His business relations with the Russians are all mixed in with the Russian mafia and oligarchs which may be for all practical purposes the same batch of characters.

But playing the Russian-card is just hyperbole bull shit. The only “THREATS” from the Russians are the ones we create from poking them with a stick. And you all remember what your mother warned you about running with a sharp stick!

Once again, it’s the old EXTERNAL ENEMY trick.

THE ONLY THING WE HAVE TO FEAR IS THE FEAR OF US!

TROJAN TRUMP
You know what Tubularsock LIKES about Republicans?

And it is not that they don’t spin it to the Exceptionalistic-American-Brain-Dead that they are doing it to make America Great Again, they do spin it that way.

And the Exceptionalistic-American-Brain-Dead BELIEVE it the same way as they believe that TIDE makes cloths brighter!

You may not like this Trump crowd but they are up front in their directed destruction.

Unlike the Democrat’s elite, you know the Clinton-Obama Cartel, that fucks you over but does it behind the facade of “caring”! You know, “A Humanitarian-War”.

And their followers too believe in TIDE.

So all of this whirlwind of Trumpism coming down the tracks every news cycle is just dust thrown in our eyes. There is a constant barrage of distraction.

So you may want to pay attention to the man BEHIND the curtain, Steve Bannon. The so called “brain” behind the voided-headed-Trump.

You see Steve, it has been revealed, LOVES WAR and as a result he “attacks” life AS A WAR. He is a big fan of the Chinese military treatise The Art of War (孫子兵法) by Sun Tzu.

This little treasure of war has 13 chapters giving “directions” on how to go about WAR.
And not to labor over YOUR next war but it is interesting in light of what is currently going on to read how it is done.

For example Chapter 2, explains how “success requires winning decisive engagements quickly”. Hence, the rapid signing statement fury. In Trump’s case it was the appearance of fast action to something that looks impressive in the press but in fact will be in the courts for some time. It wasn’t really a slam-dunk. But appearance “trumps” reality!

And Chapter 3, the source of strength of a strategic attack is defined in terms of unity, not size. Explaining why the inner circle is seemly a tight group.

Now this is just a hint from Tubularsock of how things are being orchestrated but we may not like the tune.

Every few minutes the 24-hour news cycle whips up everything from the Russians are the cause of EVERYTHING to Vice President Pence doesn’t dine with women without his wife being present.

The important thing is to look a bit deeper because what seems to be HEADLINES is the least you have to worry about!

Now on the brighter side, you may not really want to know. That of course is very “normal” for the dysfunctional American family. Daddy is fucking his daughter but we all go to church on Sunday to keep up our “loving” family image in the community. That has been the modus operandi of the American public, as so obviously displayed on 9/11.

Oh sure, three buildings fell down at free fall speed into their own footprint and most of the “terrorist’s” were from Saudi Arabia ……… let’s bomb Afghanistan!

So all of this just goes to show you that the obvious is obvious but denial makes you feel better. THAT’S AMERICA FOR YOU!
