MONEY TO BLOW!

1million 400 thousand dollars for ONE cruse missile and we sent 105 cruse missiles into Syria to destroy three supposedly chemical sites.

$1,400,000.00 times 105 = 147million dollars divided by 3 = $49,000,000. per target area.

And because 42 people in Syria were gassed by chemical weapons, so they say?

42 divided into 147,000,000.00 = $3,500,000.00 per gassed person.

Wow, and did it bring them back to life?

 

So WHO exactly profited?

 

Now when you look at the poor in this country both parties are not even close to outstanding in assisting the poor much at all.

But it is the Republican’ts who yell loudest against the poor. Yet few in either party ever question paying $1,400,000.00 for a Tomahawk Missile and then to blow off 105 of them and all prance around like something of importance has taken place is pathetic.

And then Trump-Puppet-Of-The-Neo-cons (TPOTN) acts like he has accomplished some major victory (“Mission Accomplished”) is pathetic as well. Talkin’ ‘bout LOSERS, Dumps our man!

 

And all of this bombing with no proof that chemical weapons were even used.

 

And recall that the last time this chemical thing came down Dump rushed off and bombed a Syrian airbase and killed 80 people. Again WITHOUT ANY PROOF that chemical weapon were really used.

Months after that bombing Secretary of Defense James Mattis stated that the U.S. has “no evidence” that the Syrian government used the banned nerve agent Sarin against its own people.

Yet the U.S. bomb and killed 80 people.

 

But this isn’t a new policy ……. The U.S. has been doing this for years upon years.

According to international law a country that attacks another country that does not pose a threat to that country is committing a war crime. So the U.S. has committed many war crimes. But hell we don’t count them when we do it.

And we call Iran and North Korea aggressive. When was the last time has either country attacked the U.S.?

How many times have Iraq or Libya attacked the U.S.?

Which makes the attack on the U.S. on 9/11 against the U.S. permissible behavior from an American standard. So why did WE get so pushed out of shape? It’s the same thing we do whenever we like, to other countries around the world.

Right?
HEY, IT’S THE AMERICAN WAY!

But none of these countries have attacked us, WE HAVE ATTACKED THEM but we call THEM the aggressors. Now that is some gold plated American BULL SHIT if you ask Tubularsock.

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.

 

KOREAN CRIP ALLOWED INTO TRUMP COUNTRY?

 

If you hadn’t noticed a crippled Korean was allowed into the State of the Union address even though he was a former NORTH KOREAN.

Tubularsock thought we had a WALL to protect us from the “evils” of North Korea!

Come to find out the entire Congress are in favor of North Korean cripples. Or at least it appeared that way with all of them standing up and applauding. Damn!

Now don’t you worry ……. it wasn’t real, it was a sympathetic ploy for war and we ALL can stand united for that! Right?

It is just part of the old “North Korea is so brutal to THEIR OWN CITIZENS” that WE (AMERICA) must “protect” Koreans by bombing them back to the stone age in order to save them from their own evil government.

In a lot of ways it is Trump’s new campaign:

“MAKE MORE KOREANS CRIPPLED AGAIN”.

(Oh sure, Tubularsock has made hats!)

But this isn’t even that creative. It’s the old Iraq weapons of mass distraction ploy. Will Americans be fooled again ….. SO SOON?

Because the words have already been used pushing exactly the same bull shit. It is just OrangeFuck mouthing them.

Flash back to DumbFuckShrub, remember how Shrub explained that the Saddam Hussein regime “. . . ha(d) already used poison gas to murder thousands of its own citizens . . .”? (Of course after the Reagan Administration sold them the chemicals, you know for “farm” use.)

You see, this kind of imagery is the stepping stones to preparing the American citizens for another WAR to save humanity.

After all, we have to attack them there rather than have them right here in OUR HOMELAND!

 

Remember how this works?

But really, it’s too late!

“OUR”(?) President has already LET IN a North Korean Crip! They are already here!

But as President Dump put it, “North Korea’s reckless pursuit of nuclear missiles could very soon threaten our homeland . . .” He left out the classic line “in the shape of a mushroom cloud” that the Shrub Team used so effectively. Too bad.

And those North Koreans have AT LEAST one or two nukes compared to the U.S. nuclear arsenal which if placed end to end would reach to Mars and back BUT IT IS those North Koreans that are dangerous!

Hell somebody might REALLY USE THEM on civilians!

Oh, yeah ……. we already have …….. twice!

So why is Tubularsock supposed to be scared again?

Well, there IS A REASON TO BE SCARED …………………

President OrangeTweet picked Dr. Victor Cha for nomination as the U.S. Ambassador to South Korea.

Cha was vetted and has been approved by South Korea as well. Cha is a very capable and knowledgeable choice to be Ambassador and as American Ambassadors go maybe overqualified if there is such a thing.

So for OrangeTweet to pick him was a surprise to Tubularsock.

BUT as the world turns …….. a few days ago Cha was pulled from the list by the Trump Administration.

WHY? Sure you asked!

Because in private Dr. Victor Cha expressed concerns about a military strike approach to North Korea!

Well good bye, Victor!

It appears that the Trump Administration believes that a “bloody nose” strategy on North Korea is all that it will take to keep North Korea in line.

And the “bloody nose” strategy goes like this:

If in the future North Korea does a missile test or other provocative act the American response would be a carefully targeted attack on a North Korean military facility. But this is exactly why North Korea wants nuclear weapons! North Korea doesn’t want to be Syria or Iraq where the U.S. can bomb anytime it gets upset!. No, with nuclear weapons …….. the warmongering Americans have to think twice.

HAVING nuclear weapons keeps from being attacked at the whim of the U.S.! What is so difficult to understand here?

Now if one reverses this Trump-esque insanity:

If the U.S. happened to do something that North Korea took as a provocative act and North Korea responded by “carefully targeting” a U.S. ship to show their disapproval, just what do you think the U.S.response would be?

Yep!

So, how can it be assumed that an irrational Kim Jong-un, as he is portrayed, would take it all in stride and not assume that this “selected rational limited attack” wasn’t a full out attack and in response start a war that kills hundreds of thousands of North and South Korean civilians and large numbers of US troops in a matter of hours?

AND THE ENVELOPE PLEASE ……………….

BOOOOOOOOM!

 

a functioning america?: dumb, dumber, dumbest . . .

OH COME ON …… IS THIS REALLY TRUE?

When Tubularsock saw this, immediately doubt was the reaction.

Now, it is not that Tubularsock has any doubt what-so-ever that Donnie can’t tie his own shoes but Tubularsock had to do some research about this Newsweek article. First Tubularsock hates Newsweek and doesn’t trust much of what they say but also because of the stupidity of ALL of the Trumps’ and inability to tie their own shoes was a little too much.

Hell, Melania and Ivanka wear slip-on for Christ sake!

But alas, life is stranger than fiction.

It has been disclosed by the New York City Board of Elections that due to the lack of a 3rd grade level of intelligence the Trumps couldn’t vote for the Mayor of New York because………….

Donnie while filling in his absentee ballot put down the WRONG DATE FOR HIS OWN BIRTHDAY! You know, how June and July look alike, right?

Melania wrote in under “county”, USA rather than New York and then proceeded to NOT SIGN the inner envelope as instructed to do for mail-in absentee ballots.

She is one of those immigrants that climbed the wall so at least it is somewhat understandable.

Ivanka filled out her ballot properly but didn’t mail it in on time.

And Jared, not being a “real-Trump” didn’t vote at all.

Now don’t let it bother you that:

Sure the beat goes on.

SPEAKING OF VOTING.

You have seen that Doug Jones won the Alabama Senate seat from the pedophile Moore who got less of the votes.

Moore who got less wants a recount.

But Alabama’s Secretary of State John Merrill has stated that Moore with less could have a recount if he paid for it.

But here is Tubularsock’s question:

Just how will the recount be counted?

Tubularsock assumes that the Alabama Supreme Court ruled that way because they thought the vote would be close and it would be Doug Jones wanting the recount.

Maybe that old good-ol’-boy system is going to take a hit!

 

Before the election Mitch McConnell suggested that PedoMoore should step down from running and head back to the mall and chase 14 year old virgins full time (or something like that) but then the Pussy-Grabbing-President-Dump put his full support behind Moore and then Mitch switched! (this all sounds a little gay to Tubularsock ….. just sayin’)

Mitch suggested that “IT WAS UP TO ALABAMANS TO CHOOSE THEIR SENATOR TO REPRESENT THEM IN THE U.S SENATE”!

But wouldn’t you know. Now that Alabamans have chosen their Senator to represent them, Mitch McConnell now is attempting to NOT ALLOW Doug Jones into the Senate to REPRESENT THE PEOPLE OF ALABAMA until after the tax robbery bill is voted on.

It’s called democracy.

PENIS WAVING: AMERICA’S PASTIME!

Tubularsock has been scraping around in the gutter of American sexual predators not because many men in power and many men with no power can be found there but more importantly ……. WHAT IS NEW?

This entire avalanche of the sexual predator exposé is pretty sick and sad. But it has answered three questions for Tubularsock about America.

First and foremost is a question that Tubularsock has asked himself many times.

Why is it that with 365 days a year and 24 hours in each of those days and a staff of three aides or more can’t a Senator or Representative READ THE BILLS he/she signs into law?

Case in point: The new TAX OVERHAUL bill is over 500 “government pages” long. “Government Pages” is a code phrase Tubularsock uses and it means 2/3rds of those pages are fluff-bull-shit and 1/3rd of those pages are refined bull shit.

To read those pages BEFORE you sign the bill, you’d think, would be the job of a Senator or Representative, RIGHT?

Well no. It appears that one’s reading time is reduced by 85% if the Senator’s or Representative’s entire concentration is focused on master-bating on their secretary’s desk in front of her or grabbing her tit!

See how quickly priorities change under these Congressional circumstances?

SO NOW TUBULARSOCK UNDERSTANDS WHY OUR LAWMAKERS ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOB WE ELECTED THEM TO DO!

And the ones that aren’t doing the “doing” are gossiping about it and with everyone knowing, where is this outrage and surprise coming from anyway?

And then add to it THE PUBLIC already knows as well. So why this outrage? We have ALWAYS known.

 

The second question answered for Tubularsock is why in general do European films have so much more depth than American films. And the reason is that European films depict actual human relations while American films tend to express the fantasy of the constant hard-on and then the constant “explosions” as the sign of “manhood” and hero worship.

The Hollywood directors, actors, and producers start to believe their own hype from these shallow movies and believe THEY ARE THE MANHOOD HERO. Fantasy gone mad.

And then the third question answered.

This is no surprise at all really but just substantiates Tubularsock’s suspicion.
The TV anchor. What an empty job to sit through day after day after day, spewing master bated endless bull shit written by others that you repeat with “honesty” and “warmth” calling yourself a journalist!

Talking about a reason to look for something to do “for real”!

Even if you start out with some integrity it isn’t long before when the little red light goes off you’ll repeat whatever they put on the teleprompter. Even if you know it is lies.

When you sell your soul why not “grab some pussy on the side”!

After all, the President of the United States swears by it even if the First Pussy won’t hold his hand!

FOR FURTHER READING MAY TUBULARSOCK SUGGEST:

1.Tubularsock’s Guide To Sexual Harassment “a hands on guide to hands off, the do’s and don’t s”.

2. Tubularsock’s New York Bestseller, Getting Close To The Children, “the priest’s guide to fondling the flock.”

3. And don’t miss, Fucking Around The Mall co-written by Tubularsock and Want Moore.

And then it is advised that you take The Tubularsock Workshop on Old Enough To Bleed, Old Enough To Slaughter an Alabama Evangelical Christian teaching of NOT sparing “the rod” with 14 year old girls, amen.

 

TUBE’S SESSIONS IN SESSIONS

OK! Tubularsock will admit this right up front. Jeff Sessions reminds Tubularsock of a child molester and then again when he is with his wife …. dominatrix comes to mind!

Now, of course, that is not to say that they have anything to do with either but that is what comes to Tubularsock’s mind when he see them. And some have said that “Tubularsock has some fucked up mind” and Tubularsock won’t argue that but that is what comes to some people’s minds which puts them into the same conjecture mentality as Tubularsock.

But, besides “MARY, BEAT ME BEAT ME”, what is it having Congress create a committee to investigate much of anything when they themselves conduct compromised lives? Because as can be shown, 98% of Congressional Committees waste a huge amount of time and money and produce, well NOT EVEN GOOD TV!

In fact, why not just let the lobbyists, that write up the legislation, just do a night shift and do committee work as well. Seriously, Congress is only in session (depending on the year and the chamber) around 170 days a year. This could be a part time gig for some ambitious lobbyist. And just think how better it would all work due to the Holy Grail of the “free market system”! Outsource Congress, maybe to Russia. Shit, save a lot of time!

If there is ever ANYTHING that the public should know then they call for a closed door session because of NATIONAL SECURITY! Which means that our enemies already know, and the Congressional Committees knows, and the White House knows BUT THE PUBLIC DOESN’T! And then the citizen still really believes that the people in a democracy are the government? Clears that fantasy up, now doesn’t it!

So what really just happened:

Combine the $17,444.00 for salaries of the 16 members of the Senate Intelligence Committee for the “day” and the salary of Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the “day” to sit and talk about absolutely NOTHING of any value to anyone. That is almost $3000.00 an hour!

Now that is just the cost for the primary members of the charade. That does not cover the cost for all of the aides necessary around each member to carry their pencils. Or the cost of the space and the janitorial services necessary to clean up after these assholes!

Plus all the other perks these fuckers get to do nothing of value.

DO YOU KNOW anything more than you did before they started? Of course that is if you took the time to watch it. But why would you. It is best to wait and let the talking heads on your TV make believe that some drama had occurred. NOTHING HAPPENED! Never does.

Senate “Intelligence” Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) left and Vice Chairman Mark R. Warner (D-Va.)

And let’s for the fun of it say we found out that they (whoever that is) DID IT (whatever that was) would anyone be held accountable. THE ANSWER IS NO! Oh sure, maybe some janitor who happened to leak something …… he’d get life!

WHAT A DISH OF HORSE SHIT! Would you care for mustard with that?

But of course this WASN’T a Blue Ribbon Committee. Now those cost more, last longer, and cover their finding in book binding. AND THEY substantiate the fabrication of the narrative THEY want you to believe.

Take for example the Warren Commission Report or even worse the Report On 9/11 both are worthless and off track from what actually happened. BUT THEY ARE VERY COMFORTING TO KEEP THE LIE ALIVE.

HEALTH MY ASS!

Now this is the part that Tubularsock, each time, has to step back and ponder why the American population is so dense.

It is not that it is so complicated and it is literally exposed RIGHT OUT IN PLAIN SITE.

It isn’t that it is covered up in some tricky way or anything but there it sits like a cougar on an overhanging rock SINGING IN ENGLISH, ALOUD.

WOULDN’T YOU’D THINK THEY WOULD NOTICE?

Oh. And it doesn’t have to do with political party affiliations either. Both Republicans and Democrats don’t even think twice about it. They always AGREE and just VOTE YES.

Yet the American population just seem not to care or if they do care they don’t do anything about it. It really is a remarkable mystery when you stop and realize that there are 322,762,018 of us VS only 535 of them in Congress.

So with ALL HEALTH LEGISLATION whether it was pre-Obama-Care, Obamacare, or TrumpDon’tCare Care the same thing is agreed upon.

Now you know this. Everyone knows this. And when it is brought up in any conversation it is ALWAYS dismissed with “well that’s government for you”.

Tubularsock has been sent chain-emails about it.

Tubularsock has been sent petitions to be signed against it.

Tubularsock has been sent protest gathering information to stand in opposition to it.

Even in this last election cycle at a town hall meeting when this topic came up a Congressman’s answer was to suggest that if you have a problem with this THEN RUN FOR OFFICE if you want good quality health care.

And he even got some laughs.

Well, Tubularsock wasn’t at this town hall meeting. If Tubularsock had been at this town hall meeting Tubularsock would have said:
