TUBULARSOCK’S ODE TO
“AN EXTREMELY STABLE GENIUS”

 

I know you must be kidding
I know it can’t be so
I don’t even think it’s funny
Like a looney-toony show
It is rather sad and disruptive
For one to have to know
As if the swamp has risen
And gummed up all the flow
I stand in waders to my chest
Knowing I just must go
And yet my feet are planted
That’s why I’m being slow
The economy is booming
If you believe what you’ve been told
Don’t pay attention to the stores
as they stand in line to fold
And the job rate is as high as it has ever been
But working three jobs to cover one has got to be a sin
And with all the farmers put on welfare to cover tariff loss
With foreclosures and suicides that’s pretty heavy gloss
Oh did I mention factory job loss and infrastructure troubles
Not to worry, not to worry just stay inside your bubble
But hell, our wars are working really fine with record profits made
And if we add a couple more we can cover up the shade
And rest assured with all of this that I have shared between us
NEVER WILL IT BE SOLVED, BY OUR …… “extremely stable genius”!

TRUMP NOWHERE WALL— END OF THE LINE

 

Here’s a question for you America First Lovers. As OrangeTweet continues to promote a useless and limited wall to nowhere, Russia, India and Iran are working toward a 7,200-km long lane mixing sea and rail routes essentially linking the Indian Ocean with the Persian Gulf through Iran and Russia and further on down the road, to Europe.

The Japanese are looking toward a revamped Trans-Siberian Railway to improve trade connections with Russia and China. This too will help tie North and South Korea and Vietnam into closer economic ties as well.

There is no invasion here. No military attacks on sovereign countries or military bases being forced on any of them from the outside.

Just maybe that American Imperialism isn’t looking so good and the fact that we are losing on every front may mean that the U.S. is doing something drastically WRONG!

You know, if you really have something beneficial to offer, people will gravitate toward it. Not fight it. They’ll steal it!

Interesting that China and Russia are putting huge sums of money into infrastructure while we keep dumping huge sums of money into military exploits.

And on top of that the “best” plan is an ego-wall for the emperor!

The times have reversed …….. the end of the Han Dynasty in America?

TRUMP & SANTA 2018

HALT, the bull shit train!

Every year for decades now NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, has followed Santa Claus on Christmas Eve as he zips around the world dropping down chimneys delivering presents to GOOD little girls and boys.

Sure he does.

NORAD’s aerospace control includes ensuring air sovereignty and air defense of the airspace of Canada and the United States and is on duty 24/7 three hundred and sixty five days a year EXCEPT September 11, 2001. But hey, who’s counting?

Children are encouraged to call NORAD for information of the location of Santa Claus at any given moment to be told if he’s on track.

And some years some children’s calls are diverted so they also can speak to the President or the First Lady as a political PR stunt.

Michelle Obama answered children’s calls for several years while being First Lady.

And so it goes ………. Melania performed her PR duty just like Michelle and all was well in Christmas land.

And then President Orange-Scrooge took some calls this year as well.

But first he had to close down the government …… HO, HO, HO!

You know, President Orange-Scrooge doesn’t seem to do ANYTHING correctly. Do you know what Tubularsock means?

No?

 

Well let Tubularsock give you this example:

President Orange-Scrooge took a call from a 7 year old child and during the course of the conversation the question of Believing In Santa Claus came up. The child’s response was “yes sir” indicating a belief in the jolly old Claus, when President Orange-Scrooge proceeded with “. . . at 7, it’s marginal, right?”

Now the child didn’t know what marginal meant or what the reference meant so all was good in Christmas land.

But REALLY, a guy who lies ALL THE TIME chooses at that moment to start to “tell the truth” about the existence of Santa Claus …….. REALLY?

Yet there is a much larger point Tubularsock wants you to consider.

And that is the Santa Claus LIE. That should give you pause.

Your parents LIE to you that Santa Claus is REAL!

You can call up your government on a special phone line and be told Santa Claus is REAL!

And think on this ………. THE GOVERNMENT tracks Santa just like they track YOU and that is REAL.

And the President and First Lady tells you Santa Claus is REAL!

AND YOU BELIEVE …………..

So when the times comes when you are told by your parents, your government, and your President and First Lady that Santa Claus is “AN ENEMMY COMBATANT” or an ISIS infiltrator or terrorist sympathizer will you believe THAT as well?

Sure you will!

That is how we got into the Vietnam War, and Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen!
And the citizen’s believed ……….. and that same Santa Lie continues today.

So it would do us all good if President Orange-Scrooge received a huge chunk of “clean-coal” in his Christmas stocking this year.

Maybe he will, if Santa Mueller has anything to say about it!

But unfortunately, OrangeTweet isn’t the only Santa liar out there!

 

THE DEAD CAN DANCE MIDTERMS

Now here is a happy election note for one to play on their Horny-Trumpet!

It appears that Dennis Hof, the Trump-Ass-Hole-Like brothel owner, a true total PIG of a man, won his Nevada’s 36th Assembly District by a LANDSLIDE victory.

And it really shows the depth of intelligence of the Republicans in Nevada’s 36th Assembly District because HE’S DEAD!

Yep, Dennis died three weeks BEFORE the election after his celebrating his 72nd birthday by OVER partying.

But even though he was dead the Republicans in the district voted to have him represent them by 63% of the vote.

Maybe because they are DUMB or maybe because they had voted overwhelmingly for another loser a couple of years back, Donnie Trump.

But there is an argument to be made that the Republican’s in the 36th Assembly District voted for the dead Hof in order not to flip the seat to the Democrats. Which may be a possibility. And this could hold water for Tubularsock except Tubularsock has been in this part of Nevada and brilliance is not a strong suit!

But Tubularsock will give them this; that in the 36th Assembly District they would have been better off electing a rattle snake rather than a gross dead pig!

 

Now both Dennis and Donnie had a lot in common.

First they BOTH are 72. Hmmm. Maybe that’s a sign.

And second, Dennis wrote a book, “The Art of the Pimp” (Tubularsock is not kidding here) based on Donnie’s “The Art of the Deal”.

Damn they are like brothers! Both FAT, STUPID, and INTELLECTUALLY VOID!

But why should those qualities stand in the way of a Republican?

You see Republicans in this election went ahead and voted in two other Republican candidates that have current Indictments against them.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R), 50th District of California with a 60-count indictment on felony charges of wire fraud and campaign finance violations.

Rep. Chris Collins (R), 27th District of New York with an indictment on federal insider trading charges.

But hey, crooks have to make a living too! Why not have them represent you in government with their friends.

Once people get an eye opening event with the Trump tax returns …….. will any of the Republicans even take note?

Ok maybe a C-note. It’s par for the Republican mind set.

Now don’t get Tubularsock wrong here. All this is not to say that the Republicans are the only ones that have dirty laundry.

The Clinton’s are right up there with the Republican criminal element for sure. They all belong to the same social circles and private clubs and even play golf together at times.

And no surprise, the people that AREN’T in those circles are YOU and your friends!

BUT IT’S YOU that pays the price …….. do you get that, yet?

 

So now we have the dead being elected and the voters with their addresses listed as the local cemetery must be voting for their own kind.

So all this “voter fraud” being bantered around is really only sour grapes because the dead representatives are just being elected by the cemetery crowd and thereby just being supportive of their base!

Ahhhh ………. all’s good with democracy!

 

TARIFF & BEER

 

A half ass Trump produces half ass policies producing half ass outcomes for a half ass country!

HOW PERFECT! Oh yes, American Exceptionalism!

Could the dumb ass get any better than this?

 

 

COKE is raising its prices and BEER is going up. Damn, those TRUMP TARIFFS are sure helping out us deplorables!

But rest assured the soybean farmers are going on corporate welfare, BMW are raising it’s prices and Harley-Davidson is moving some of its work out of the country.

Goldman Sachs projects Ford and GM will both lose $1 billion each this year because of Trump’s tariffs.

Well hell, it’s only money!

 

The interesting problem is that the trade war with China sets in motion a loss in market share.

And the longer all this continues, soybean farming will grow in other countries and once that becomes established it may NEVER shift back to the way it was before Trump’s destruction of the American soybean farmers.

But that doesn’t really matter. Fucking Dump hasn’t any stock in soybeans!

So, you got to admit that no one except The Imbecile In Chief could have bankrupted a gambling casino but THAT is the “brilliance” of Dump’s business aptitude.

You’ll understand what direction we are going economically when you see the first “garage sale” on the White House front lawn. Cash Only!

 

IRAN–RATHER WALK!

 

Wow! Here’s some shit you need to know.

Rudy Giuliani addressed a rally in Paris Saturday June 30, 2018.

Get this …….. he spoke to a group called the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). These guys are mostly controlled by the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MeK).

Remember the MeK? Come on, you remember.

The MeK was once listed by the U.S. as a terrorist organization. But you know how that wind changes right? Now those same TERRORISTS are our friends.

Tubularsock has a “feeling” that we have been here before. Try Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, even Vietnam for starters. And WE LOST or are still loosing.

But winning is not the point …….. destabilization is the point.

Can you imagine loosing a child because they joined the military to destabilize the world? What a waste. Sure shows how your dead child was just cannon fodder for the machine.

And the regular people of those countries lost big time. Hundreds of thousands of them, DEAD! And the United States of America killed them or had them killed!

FOR WHAT? Rest assured Mr. and Mrs. America is wasn’t for your safety.

Now Rudy Giuliani is their friend!

(An aside about Rudy. Every time I listen to or see Rudy Giuliani, Tubularsock has to wash his hands. The slim that runs off that son-of-a-bitch is intense!)

And MeK is a Marxist-Islamist cult built around the personality of its leader, Maryam Rajavi.

Rudy under direction from Trump are backing a Marxist-Islamist cult? Damn!

“We are now realistically being able to see an end to the regime in Iran. . .” Rudy tells the 4000 member crowd.

And much of the crowd was bought and payed for by the organizers. A large portion of the crowd were refugees and young eastern Europeans who had been bused in to attend the rally in return for a weekend trip to Paris.(The Guardian 6/30/18)

Damn the price some people will endure to get to Paris. Tubularsock would have done that! “Yeah MeK!, NOW, can I go and see The Louvre?”

Giuliani continued with, “The mullahs must go, the ayatollah must go, and they must be replaced by a democratic government which Madam Rajavi represents!

“Freedom is right around the corner … Next year I want to have this convention in Tehran!”

And then Rudy let the cat out of the bag, the current wave of protests in Iran are being orchestrated from outside the country! Wonder if anyone bothered to ask the Iranians?

“Those protests are not happening spontaneously,” Giuliani said. “They are happening because of many of our people in Albania [which hosts an MeK compound] and many of our people here and throughout the world.”

So is Rudy saying “our people” because Rudy is a Marxist-Islamist cult member?

And that is how the U.S. worked the overthrow in the Ukraine by joining with the fascists
to bring the country down. The majority of the people wanted to side with Russia NOT the U.S.

In fact, the U.S. put up 5 BILLION dollars to overthrow Ukraine.

Now what do you think the U.S. (that is YOU, taxpayer) is putting up to attempt the overthrow Iran?

AND FOR WHAT?

JUST HOW WILL IT BENEFIT YOU?

Well, figure in the cost of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and then go out and look at your pot holed streets and broken bridges and the 21 TRILLION DOLLARS that the Pentagon has lost track of ……. hey, it’s got to be someplace!

No, don’t bother to check your own bank account to find it. For sure it’s not there!

Trust Tubularsock on that!

Now before anyone gets all upset about just how “dangerous” Iran is to the U.S. Tubularsock is willing to concede this idea.

Lets put Giuliani, John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, Newt Gingrich in a jeep with each with a M-16 and let them charge the boarder.

 

 

Seriously, Tubularsock will back them from his top floor corner office overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA!

VICTORY IS OURS!

 

WARJÀ VU

Do you ever get that “feeling” that you have seen this before?

Well Tubularsock calls it WARJÀ VU.

It is that “Here we go again moment”.

 George W. Bush promised a humble foreign policy with no nation building:

“If we don’t stop extending our troops all around the world in nation-building missions, then we’re going to have a serious problem coming down the road. And I’m going to prevent that.” (Candidate Bush)

He criticized the Clinton-Gore Administration for being too interventionist.

 

                                      Barack Obama spoke out against the impending war in Iraq in the fall of 2002 and in 2004 questioned the Bush administration’s management of the Iraq War, and highlighted America’s obligations to its soldiers.

 

As Ivo Daalder, a former National Security Council official under President Clinton who later headed up a team advising Obama on nonproliferation issues, put it, “There’s a feeling that this is a guy who’s going to help us transform the way America deals with the world.”

AND YET, Obama pursued similarly imperialistic policies to those of his predecessor, George W. Bush.
In fact, if you are counting Obama out did Bush in bombing and killing!

Bush: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Somalia.

Obama: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria.

 

“I will never send our finest into battle unless necessary, and I mean absolutely necessary, and will only do so if we have a plan for victory with a capital V,” he thundered. “The world must know that we do not go abroad in search of enemies.” (candidate Trump)

Trump’s view  of the Iraq War BEFORE he was President:

*** March 2007 interview on CNN (“Declare victory and leave”)

*** 2008 interview with British GQ (“First, I’d get out of Iraq right now”)

*** 2011 interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan where Trump said he’d get US troops in Iraq “out real fast.”

Donald Trump promised an America First foreign policy that would shrink the US role on the world stage and spend more money at home than abroad.

 

1. Sending more American troops to Afghanistan.
no timetable for when those troops would come home.

2. Syria, where Trump has deployed sizable numbers of American combat forces and directly attacked the military of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

3. Iraq, Trump has not only dispatched hundreds of new US troops to the country but has also put them closer to the front lines and given them more freedom to bombard targets from the air.

4. In Yemen, elite US special operations forces are conducting ground assaults while the US wages an increasingly brutal air campaign against

Trump even mused about sending the US military into Venezuela, though he didn’t offer any explanation of why or what their mission would be.

This is the exact opposite of what many of Trump’s core supporters had expected. And same went for Obama and Bush!

And here is the key:

We have never left the neoconservative foreign policy paradigm that the U.S. must dominate the world. And that is where regime change comes into play.

So these continuous wars that we find ourselves in, REGARDLESS OF THE FEELINGS OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC, are due to a pre-fixed program of American domination.

And no matter which Party or what the President says about being AGAINST WAR, they are not.

Yet the public falls for it time after time.

As Zbigniew Brzezinski expressed, “Most Americans are close to total ignorance about the world. They are ignorant. That is an unhealthy condition in a country in which foreign policy has to be endorsed by the people if it is to be pursued. And it makes it much more difficult for any president to pursue an intelligent policy that does justice to the complexity of the world.”

So the way the ignorant citizen is directed into this false and dangerous foreign policy is by “false-flag” actions such as the Gulf of Tonkin and the 9/11.

Because an external enemy threat has been the tool to keep the citizens in line even when they are opposed to continuous wars.

 

And now ENTER JOHN BOLTON and GINA HASPEL!

John Bolton is so conservative that he, years ago, had fallen off the “right” end of the conservative spectrum into the lunatic fringe.

He believes that a first strike against North Korea and Iran would be acceptable.

He falls in with the Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz crowd that brought us the Iraq War.

BUT BOLTON STILL BELIEVES IT WAS A GOOD IDEA.

Yes, not only delusional but just plain stupid in the dangerous way.

And Trump has appointed him his National Security Advisor.

AND THEN THERE’S GINA!

Trump has appointed her the new Director of the CIA.

She not only condones torture but oversaw a black-site in Thailand for the purpose of torturing prisoners.

And on top of BEING A WAR CRIMINAL for that she also prepared the cable granting permission to destroy tapes with an industrial shredder of the interrogation sessions of terror detainees.

This was done after the CIA had been instructed NOT TO destroy the tapes.

The direction to prepare the cable granting destruction of evidence was given by Jose Rodriguez, director of the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center.

And is the classic case of “just following orders” from Gina.

SO HERE WE COME AROUND AGAIN ……… WAR HAS TO HAPPEN!

And it will.

Which leads us to THE NEXT FALSE FLAG EVENT.

It is necessary to galvanize the American Public into supporting a war or wars they really don’t want.

Wouldn’t it be fun if Tubularsock was WRONG?

Sadly, he’s not. You’ll see.
