BEWARE, TRUMPATITIS!

 

One of the major signs of the deadly Trumpatitis is having the ability to bungle your job in huge and mind boggling ways and not being able to identify the problem while looking directly in the mirror!

On January 11th the first non travel case of Covid-19 was diagnosed in the U.S. and the Chinese Government sent out to the world the genome of the Covid-19 virus.

Within a week of that posting the Germans had produced the first diagnostic test for the disease.

By the end of February, the World Health Organization had shipped tests to almost sixty countries.

Yet the Trump Administration refused the WHO test and waited for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to produce its own test.

THIS WAS ONE OF THE FIRST FAILURES OF THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO SLOW THE VIRUS IN THE U.S., according to vital-disease experts both within and without the Administration’s health agencies.

But hey ………. wayyyyyyyyyy before that, in April 2018, Dump’s Administration removed Tom Bossert along with his epidemic team from the Department Homeland Security and a month later reassigned Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer and dissolved and shut down the entire global health security unit that was part of the National Security Council.

And surprise surprise, neither of the epidemic teams were replaced!

When Dump took office he inherited from Obummer a large and extremely capable group of disease prevention experts which helped guide Obummer through THREE epidemic/pandemic during his time in office.

Dump squandered this opportunity along with many others because of his petty little juvenile ego and has once again caused harm to a great number ……… pathetic, bungling, idiotic, stupid sad little man.

But why stop there?

Dump has been pushing for a 19% budget cut for the Center for Disease Control and Prevention ….. the agency currently tasked with preparing and responding to all outbreaks and serious health threats to our country.

As well as a 10% cut to “public health scientific services”, a 3% cut to “public health preparedness and response” and a 7% cut to global health programs.

And this is the guy who is running the show?

Tubularsock feels colloquially ………. he’s full of SHIT!

 

FOLLOWING OURSELVES: DON’T LOOK BACK!

Do you believe in Public Education? How about having a community Fire Department?

Do you believe in public owned roads and highways?

Should there be Public Libraries?

Public Parks and playgrounds? Federal National Parks?

Do you believe in the Social Security Program?

ARE YOU A SOCIALIST?

It is strange how “socialism” is defined in “U.S. public speak”.

Because of the fear of the Communism-Hang-Over from the 1950’s, Americans’ have been propagandized to believe that Socialism and Communism are the same thing.

THEY ARE NOT!

Even if Little-Squat-Goldbloom is willing to throw out verbal garbage at Bernie about being a Communist equating it with Socialism ……… Bernie’s retort was damn straight if you were paying attention.

“You say you don’t like socialism, but how is giving $2 trillion to corporations not socialism, just upside down socialism?”

You all remember that bull shit about “welfare queens” sucking off the system and just how appalled the Republican’ts were just a few years back.

But you hear very few Republican’ts and Democraps ever complain about gillions of dollars in government SUBSIDIES being passed out year after year to corporations without much oversight or care. THAT IS SOCIALISM FOR THE RICH!

Oh, just for the fun of it …… “Gosh, where will we get the money to pay for it?”
Remember we are talking about TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS!

Funny how that phrase, “where will we get the money to pay for it” looks different based on who gets the money!

Now these corrupt practices are not a one party monopoly. Don’t forget it was Obummer, under the Democrap’s flag, that bailed out the banks and mortgage brokers after their shady deals with millions of dollars of Federal Funds while leaving the “regular” citizen holding the bag as thousands of them lost their homes.

Thank you so much Barack ………. BUT, “where will we get the money to pay for it”?

And then remember a bribe pay off can happen after an event as well as before.

Less than a year after leaving office Obama received $1.2 million for a series of speeches he made to major Wall Street Firms and Banks he helped bail out. About $400,000. per speech.

Pay off time baby!

And so many people STILL “respect” that scumbag! Fuckkkk! Some people are just not bright! Oh well, in America you are “free” to be stupid. It is just expensive!

But Socialism you are supposed to be AFRAID OF except the socialism for the rich.

So don’t say that Tubularsock didn’t attempted to awaken you.

Tubularsock has concluded that IF the Democraps double-deal Bernie and back Dead-Brain-Biden then the United States will STAY THE COURSE to its own destruction.

It is so uncanny that we are on a very similar trajectory as the Fall of the Roman Empire. (Seriously, check it out yourself)

Rather eery if you ask Tubularsock but it appears we are in lock step.

SO …….. perhaps History DOES repeat itself.

Now just where is that rewind?

LIES WE LIVE BY: AMERICA

The main thing Tubularsock appreciates about OrangeDufus is that he has brought to the light what the United States has been hiding from its own citizens from its founding and this deception was and is to this day the deliberate fabrication that our country REALLY believes in and stands for Justice for all, Freedom for all, and a system that rewards the hard working with a future of prosperity for all.

And as for “moral” leadership? Just when did that EVER exist in our history?

Nope ……. never happened! And YOU know it and your neighbors know it but you push on believing it is true because IF IT IS NOT then who’s running things?

To Tubularsock, it is much like the entire 9/11 facade ……… the story of what occurred is a lie of the highest order but even today when it is brought up people will go the long way around the room to avoid facing the “possibility” that their government lied to them.

WHY? Simple. “If Daddy lies to me then who is in charge and who will PROTECT ME!
Even if the next day he beats me again.

And even more outrageous to Tubularsock and every THINKING person is that “OUR” government LIED us into the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Iraq War to name the short list and the citizens will follow like sheep into the next one and even allow their children to die …………. FOR NOTHING. NOTHING!

It is tiring to watch but the fear and propaganda is fast and furious. And people worry about the fucking Russians ……… go fucking look in the mirror America! YES YOU!

And with all of that we are entering into the 2020 election and if you haven’t noticed, NOTHING HAS CHANGED!

The Roman Bread and Circus in form of the CELL PHONE and social media runs more shit faster than in any other time in the history of the world BUT the population may be dumber. Go figure.

And with G5, when in full operation, we’ll ALL have an ORANGE TAN like the OrangeDufus mixed with fried brains with soy sauce courtesy of Huawei!

And yet the beat goes on …………

And we have the OrangeDufus to thank for the exposing all of this on the obscene level because he is so unfiltered.

He is a TOTAL ASS (not a 1/2 ass) and “thinks” (always a questionable endeavor with him) that what he does is “normal”. A classic deranged mind on steroids.

As opposed to the Step-en-fetch-it Kneegrow, Obummer who talks the smooth jive but was a slave to wall street banks and the military industrial complex and was paid handsomely for bending over and taking it up the ass for the gipper!

And we can’t forget, the total imbecile BabyBush and his fucking CIA daddy for lying us into war with Iraq and destabilizing the entire Middle East using the EVIL PERSONIFIED Prick-Cheney as his lead homey! Fuck them both!

Or how about President Blue Stain Dress Slick Willy and his besty friend Jeffrey Epstein spending all that time on Petalphile Island. Presidential material for sure!

And not last and not least but Tubularsock just has to bring forth head up his ass Alzheimer-Ron. A low time low for presidential standards.

Does any of this point to why the U.S. has been on a rapid decline which may really end with the Dumb-Shit-OrangeDufus?

But what OrangeDufus has done for us is to highlight just how corrupt and dysfunctional the U.S. political establishment is and has been ALL ALONG.

And that is why Bernie is a breath of fresh air and the reason that his CHANGE IN DIRECTION is so frightening the the status quo.

The corporate Democraps will lose their corrupt grip on the system and so will the corrupt Republicant’s!

And you can tell just how scary it is because the Clinton/Obummer wing of the corporate Democraps are willing to let the OrangeDufus win rather than support Bernie!

WHY?

And the reason is as simple and as obvious.

With a Bernie win THEY lose power and the corrupt money they take along the way because they hold that power.

The Republicants are in the same boat!

You see, what we have here is THE CORRUPT DEALINGS of both as well as either/or parties: The Democraps and the Republican’ts and they trade back and forth the power so as to keep their corrupt government contracts and money flow.

Bernie is the monkey wrench in the gears of corruption and THAT is why both parties will do whatever necessary to stop Bernie and save THEIR gravy train. EVEN IF HE WINS!

And in the process ………. FUCK YOU MR. AND MRS. AND MISS AND MS. AND YOUR PRONOUN OF CHOICE AMERICA!

Now don’t get Tubularsock wrong here. Bernie has his own baggage. His total foreign policy record is not to the liking of Tubularsock BUT it is not out of line with what traditional American foreign policy has been …….. complete domination of the world!

No, Bernie’s strength lies in SOCIAL REFORM and fairness within the U.S. boarders.

Medicare4All, the Green New Deal, free public college, universal free child care and always the resounding chorus of “HOW DO WITH PAY FOR THIS?”

We pay for this the exact same way we pay for CONTINUOUS WAR! That’s how.

Ever notice that there is ALWAYS enough to bloat the Pentagon Budget but never enough for child care? Ever wonder why?

Simple answer: there is more profit for the few with WAR than helping the citizen with a chance to live a prosperous life. Think on this! It explains a lot!

NOW.

Even with a Bernie win (if that is even possible in a system of cheats and scoundrels) those who control the power are not going to give up nor are they going to roll over and play dead.

The powerful will stonewall the system BIG-TIME to prevent any changes where they lose power and PROFIT, period!

So IF Bernie does win, it will take those who elected him not to go back to sleep like American voters always do after an election (you know, “let daddy handle it from here”) but to stay active as a mass movement and support the changes needed aggressively.

Like: Shut down the system until it responds to the changes necessary for a free and fair DEMOCRACY!

Stop buying shit until change happens. Remember a loss of profit in this system speaks louder than photos of starving children!

Can this happen? Well, “Tubularsock Has A Dream”, and unlike other dreamers Tubularsock won’t be standing on any motel balconies any time soon.

 

THE RUSHING RUSSIANS ARE COMING!

Gotta’ admit the Establishment Democraps have a lack luster imagination when it comes to Danger.

It is all really sooooo, LAST CENTURY.

Tubularsock comes from a time when the BIG fear was that the Commies from the Soviet Union were going to (any second now) send over to Tubularsock’s schoolroom an ATOMIC BOMB and blow Tubularsock and his classmates to “kingdom come”!

The “protective” school authorities showed all of us movie after movie after movie of the effects of the ATOMIC BOMB as it exploded and sent it’s radio active shock waves that decimated every building for miles around. Swept those buildings away like toothpicks.

And Tubularsock at about ten years old had an early political insight.

IF the ATOMIC BOMB did the kind of damage that was demonstrated on those films they were showing us AND OUR PROTECTORS’ solution was to “duck and cover”, usually under a pupil’s school desk or table THEN they didn’t have a clue of how to protect us from total destruction.

That was when Tubularsock conducted his first political disobedience and of course trouble ensued. Tubularsock REFUSED to “duck and cover”!

But no one could counter Tubularsock’s stated observation of “movie knowledge” that “duck and cover” was absurd!

The reaction was almost as swift as Tubularsock’s vision of the Russian’s attacking. Tubularsock’s teacher attempted to shame Tubularsock and proceeded to send Tubularsock to the principal’s office (AFTER the drill was ended).

The principal reprimanded Tubularsock for not “following directions of the teacher”.

And Tubularsock’s father was ………. OUTRAGED at Tubularsock’s audacity of questing the “power structure” but MORE importantly EMBARRASSING HIM!

The lesson for Tubularsock?; clandestine gorilla tactics were the ONLY way to survive until Tubularsock’s draft resistance and Vietnam War Protesting days where Tubularsock and his father parted ways.

Which is the long way to getting to the Establishment Democraps, Bernie, Trump and the Russkies.

The entire Russian election involvement is like throwing a hand grenade into the air and then “duck and cover”. Total BULLSHIT!

It is not that the Russians, the Israelis, the Chinese, the CIA, the NSA and every other Tom, Dick, and Harry haven’t got their hands in the “influencing of the election pie”, that is how elections work throughout the world. THAT is the reality!

SO GET OVER THAT! “They do it!” “We do it!” It is the nature of the manipulated universe we dwell in.

Here is the bottom line:

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

A candidate that wants to continue crony-capitalistic-fascism ……….. Trump!

A candidate that wants to continue crony-capitalistic-fanciful-neoliberalism ……. Biden, Buttigieg, Klobuchar, Warren, Bloomberg!

A candidate whose “focus” is to give the power of governmental direction BACK INTO THE HANDS OF THE PEOPLE! ……….. Sanders.

That is your choice!

WHAT IS THE DIRECTION YOU WANT THE COUNTRY TO GO ……….PUT YOUR VOTE THERE!

There is this constant refrain that Tubularsock hears in discussions about placing one’s vote and that is:

“I’m not going to vote for Sanders because I don’t think he can win against Trump.”

Tubularsock’s answer: NOT IF YOU DON’T VOTE FOR HIM!

Fucking wake the fuck up, America!

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW!

Where in the world have you come up with the idea that a fucking BILLIONAIRE of either party gives a shit about YOU! You have got to be kidding!

Shitttttttt, GET REAL!!!!!!!!

OH THIS AGAIN AND IN RED, WHITE & BLUE TOO!

 

A new normal? Nah …………….

Business as usual, that is really what we have here.
And Tubularsock believes that we have OrangeDump to thank for it.

Well, you can’t miss the 2016 “buy-in”, the Clinton take over of the DNC. It was only MONEY and if you have the CASH you have the control.

That was enough to rig the faithful Corporate Dems goal of a Killery candidate and the nail in Bernie’s forehead.

AND a guarantee of a Dump win.

And now we all know, if one cares to look, that the Russians had little to do with intervention into our 2016 election except their standard monkey wrench throwing into the mythical gears of democratic government.

NO, all Russia was involved in was the same routine deceptive meddling that the U.S. CIA has done to EVERY country’s elections on earth.

THAT IS THE JOB OF THE CIA …… to fuck up others elections for our ends!

So any Russian involvement was just business as usual.

THE REAL malfeasant entity was THE DEM-O-CRAP PARTY. And those ten gillion emails of Killery’s that went missing would easily show this. But ………ALL-GONE!

Well, if you sit in the same place long enough it all passes you again and if you are astute you’ll notice what you may have missed before.

So here we are again and, by golly, they are right on time! Consistency is the harbinger of those who produce ill intent!

The DNC of Nevada has just hired a paid staffer from Buttigieg’s Iowa organization, Emily Goldman to the PAID position of “Voter Protection Director.”

Tubularsock knows ……………… WHAT THE FUCK?

Well, Emily did so well in Iowa at throwing that preverbal monkey wrench into the Caucus System, that NEVADA HERE SHE COMES!

And the irony of irony, “Voter Protection Director.”

No seriously, this is real. Tubularsock can make shit like this up but doesn’t have to spend the time ……. lunacy abound!

Little is known what exactly the parameters of her new position will be but Tubularsock can guess, and has to, because Emily’s qualifications and biography have not as yet been released but to show FULL TRANSPARENCY she has locked her professional and private social media accounts after news of the hiring first broke.

That is one hell of a comfort for Tubularsock!

Some have stated that there seems to be increasing fears that party leaders are trying to rig the nomination in favor of the ex-mayor of South Bend, Indiana. No kidding … very astute!

You remember, in Iowa Pete’s campaign had paid Shadow, Inc., $42,500.00 last July for services and so did Biden’s and Klobuchar’s campaigns but to a far lessor amount. You get what you pay for, perhaps.

There were other ties between Mayor Pete and Shadow and reliable sources are reporting that Shadow Inc, a secretive company with ties to the tech team for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run, is the company behind the app.

Well, no shit Dick Tracy!

On top of all of that Bernie is showing rather well, Soooooo, ENTER the money again!

Oligarch Time!

The DNC bent over backwards and changed the rules for entering the Presidential Campaign when our home made oligarch Michael Bloomberg donated more than $100,000 to the DNC just days before he entered the race; candidates typically make such contributions to get access to the party’s national voter database.

But usually not in the middle of the process. MONEY speaks according to Citizens United!

Jeff Weaver, a senior adviser for Bernie Sanders, said it would be “wrong” to change rules that would “accommodate Mayor Bloomberg, who has raised no grassroots donations and is instead flooding the airwaves across the country funded by his billions of dollars of personal assets.”

BUT the truth was expressed better by a Bloomberg adviser when he addressed the REAL explanation, “Mike may end up as the only thing standing between Bernie and the nomination.” (Nathan J. Robinson, Current Affairs)

There you have it ………. the fix is in ………. OR NOT.

We have come full circle.

Will Americans fall for the OLIGARCH SAVIOR or an ORANGE CREATURE?

Excuse Tubularsock America, But really ……….

When was the last time has an Oligarch or an Orange Menace ever helped YOU out? NO REALLY!

It is time to change this up: Bernie 2020.

That is the ONLY chance for the SLIGHTEST shift in our current direction toward destruction.

AND DON’T NEGLECT to notice that even if Bernie Sander wins, the establishment will raise hell to stop “sharing the wealth” that has been created in our lopsided system!

A win is just the start of a gargantuan fight to the finish ……….

HELL, what else do you have to do?

AS THE EARTH TURNS: A SUMMARY

Oh boy. Tubularsock is sitting alone in his top floor corner office in the underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA (see Bunker Tour) and the view is surreal and down right depressing BUT ONLY IF you haven’t gotten on your protective Tubularsock over-gear protection attire from what’s really happening.

Fortunately you can purchase your very own TOGPA (Tubularsock over-gear protection attire) for an inexpensive 13 hundred dollars and change.

And then you-2 can be protected from the society you live in everyday.

Tubularsock set some time aside from the world of political decay to watch some current movie trailers. WHAT THE FUCK is wrong with this society? THIS SHIT is entertainment?

They have got to be kidding. Destruction, mayhem, endless car chases to no where for no reason and broken, shattered, deformed, fucked up relationships that have absolutely NO-NONE-NADA reason to even care about the fucking outcome!

The end of civilization, end of communities, end of relationship and having one’s face ripped off like it is a mask by some freakish disembodied “thing” that resembles “your mother” and you are expected to eat hot buttered pop corn after THAT!

FUUUUUUUUUCK!

So, Tubularsock adjusted his TOGPA and pushed on to the political terrain and the daily happenings of “Western Civilization” and well, Tubularsock can’t tell the difference from the movie trailers.

Dump is out of control, Barr, jokingly the head of the “Justice” Department, is kowtowing to the OrangeDufus and throwing the rule of law out the window to allow Roger Stone to walk.

The few “headaches” of our military personal after the Iranian missile attacks in retaliation for Soleimani’s killing has morphed into many more dead and wounded that is slowly leaking out from the Pentagon but MOST significant is the killing of American Michael D’Andrea who was a prominent figure, the head of Iran operations for the CIA, and the man who orchestrated the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani as well as other targeted murders.

This is BIG enough that, the MSM hasn’t really covered it much.

Nor has the OrangeDump noticed that what goes around comes around. Tubularsock figures no one has informed him about it for safety sake.

And in further “spy news” it has been “leaked” by the Washington Post (a CIA outlet) that for years the backbone of the Cold War was the CIA’s ability to have a “backdoor” to nearly EVERY country’s computer system so as to spy on them.

Strange. Who didn’t already know this? So just why is the CIA leaking this now?

Has to do with Huawei (the Chinese leading global provider of information and communications technology).

It’s a PR stunt to warn that China is spying (supposedly) on EVERYONE the same way the CIA has done for years. And if the world goes to Huawei’s 5G system then it edges out the CIA’s “backdoor” to the world wide system.

It also puts a dent in the sales of American technology in Europe and South America.

Which brings Secretary of State Mike Pompeo out of the woodwork like a cockroach to declare that the Chinese Communist Party is “the central threat of our times”!

Does it really matter if the 5G system is from the U.S. or China when it fucking fries your brain and turns your skin to a Trump-Orange-Tint?

And the Democrap’s are out doing themselves to stop Bernie but the PEOPLE seem to be awakening at least a little ……. we shall see.

It is rather funny that Bernie is a “socialist” BUT Obummer took government money, tax payer money, and bailed out the Banks and the Auto Industry and ALL of the Presidents have backed Government subsidies to corporations BUT they call it “a free enterprise system”! Horse shit supreme!

In a free market system the fittest shall survive! Once the government steps in and SUBSIDIES corporations we are headed for fascism.

But if the workers start to control the means of production then it leans toward socialism.

And Bernie leans toward New Deal Socialism which is a focus on the citizen and the citizen’s well being as opposed to the American oligarchs.

EAT THE RICH!

 

MERRY METAPHOR HOHOHO! 2019 A TUBULARSOCK CHRISTMAS.

Well it is all winding down now.
People with no money have indebted themselves until next October to spread happiness under a dead or plastic “tree”.

All because “THEY” told you that plastic crap makes one happy!

And “THEY” repeated it to you over and over and over.

And how can your children COMPETE with your neighbor’s children and school mates without an iPhone-10,000?

Yeah, we go through this every year and with the same results nationally.
Higher suicide rates.
Higher alcohol consumption.
Higher drug intake.
And record high depression!

There is something wrong with this picture.
Don’t you think?

Happiness doesn’t lie in having “things”!
And it isn’t improved by having even more because it isn’t the answer to start with.

LESS IS MORE.

Ponder that on Christmas Day over the din.

And just what is Christmas without Tubularsock’s favorite Christmas Carol?
Oh sure …….. sing along!
