Tube Crowd Speeker heading

Now, as Tubularsock writes this it is nearing midnight in Moscow. And it’s near noon in Oakland, CA which makes drinking Vodka permissible in both time zones according to Tubularsock’s rules. Of course morning Vodka does have its place too.

Tubularsock has never, to date, disliked a Russian. All the Russians that Tubularsock has met over the years have all been likable. Now, granted Tubularsock is working with a limited sample but it’s the only sample Tubularsock has.

Now Vlad, who Tubularsock has never met, is an oligarch unlike Obummer who is a puppet of oligarchs. Both are working from SELF interest and both have a lot invested in their “trade” of power and money.

ObamaPutin Bogeyman

But Tubularsock doesn’t really have any experience in being an oligarch nor a puppet of the oligarchs in the direct sense. But Tubularsock does have direct experience with being a person.

So lets look at the Russian/U.S. American dis-harmony which has been propagated Tubularsock’s entire life. It is all BULL SHIT!

Tubularsock bets you 50-bucks-American that Tubularsock could bring one hundred Russians and one hundred U.S. Americans together and work out any differences we all have. Don’t think so? Tubularsock doesn’t see your 50 bucks on the table!

Tubularsock bets you also that Tubularsock could “talk-down” a Black man with a knife without shooting him ……. it’s not an art form, it’s an intention!

Really!

The Washington “bubble” and the Moscow “bubble” work the same way EXCEPT the United States has double-crossed the Russians more than the Russians have double-crossed the United States ………. hands down!

But how could THAT be any surprise?

The United States has double-crossed our African-American Population as well as our Native American Population our entire history …….. so what’s new?

Shameful as it is ……. the truth hurts!

Oh how Tubularsock digresses.

When the Soviet Union collapsed, the United States made a DEAL with the Russian Federation that the United States would NOT SUPPORT NATO in attempting to build military forces in countries that bordered Russia.

Tubularsock has always been amazed that the Russians fell for this. All they had to do is to look at EVERY treaty the United States made with the Native Americans to see the LIE THAT IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

And SLAVERY and JIM CROW……….. where in one’s fucking logic could ANYONE trust a mind set like that? FREEDOM & DEMOCRACY?????? Horse shit!

But the Russians did.

But rather than the United States living up to it’s “integrity”, it worked to “Contain-Russia”!

But in truth, who should be contained?

The United States has a military budget of a zillion dollars and military intrusions to match. The Russians don’t! The Chinese don’t!

The United States has attacked more countries in the world today than China and Russia combined! In truth, Russian and China look like pacifist in comparison.

EXACTLY WHO SHOULD BE CONTAINED?

If the United States can make “economic treaties” and become “trading partners” with both Russia and China, why exactly can’t we stop this aggression toward one another?

Well the easy answer ………. war profiteering! All of them make big bucks in war sales!

Hey, haven’t you heard ……… the business of business is business.

But on top of that the game of natural resources and who controls them is paramount, or “we the people” are made to believe so.

The US military is the biggest purchaser of oil in the world.

“Energy consumed per active duty military and civilian personnel is 35 percent higher than the U.S. energy consumption per capita, which is amongst the highest in the world. While consuming that amount of energy, DoD (Department of Defense) emitted 73 million metric tons of CO2, corresponding to over 4 percent of the total emissions in USA.” (The Daily Energy Report, 2009)

The DoD uses 360,000 barrels of oil each day. There are only 35 countries in the world that consume more oil than the DoD.

So what we have here is the need to consume oil at that high rate in order to maintain our continuous wars for oil control so we can maintain our supply of oil which we depend on to supply our oil in which to fight our oil wars.

SAY WHAT?

So wouldn’t it be easier to just cut the military?

Tube ready headingIf stupidity grew on trees the United States would be a wonderland of forests!

Tubularsock has been informed by the New York Times that Obomber has called for an increase of heavy weapons, armored vehicles and other equipment to NATO countries in Central and Eastern Europe.

Why?

obombahhh

Well because it’s a move that administration officials said is aimed at deterring Russia from further aggression in the region.

Now this will be paid for by a budget request of more than $3.4 billion for military spending in Europe in 2017.

Why?

Well, you see somehow the New York Times and the Obomber Administration has gotten mixed up. Lying will do that.

un-intel intel

Somehow the United States’ overthrow of the government in the Ukraine has gotten turned around as Moscow’s aggression and that the 85% of the Crimean People’s VOTE to join Russia is construed as Russia’s annexation of Crimea — an annexation that neither the United States nor its European allies recognize!

If lies grew on trees the United States would be a wonderland of forests!

So what does all this mean?

The candidates that are being put up for the next wave of WAR all agree. Doesn’t matter whether it’s Bernie, or Hillary, or Jeb, or Donnie, or Ted with the Bible up his ass, they ALL support WAR.

Yet the majority of the American population is tired of war.

If voting-mattered grew on trees within the United States there would be barren ground!

The ONLY candidate that would STOP WAR and close U.S. military bases and take that money savings and apply it to DOMESTIC INFRASTRUCTURE REPAIR AND FREE EDUCATION AND IMPROVE HEALTH CARE IS ……. Jill Stein of the Green Party!

Haven’t heard of her …….. no surprise is it?

http://www.jill2016.com/

You do realize that if you compare Jill’s platform with Bernie’s, well Bernie is the same old same old head up his butt Bernie!

Now Jill is a WOMAN but she isn’t a corporate-whore like Hillary.

Jill, actually has INTEGRITY!

If integrity grew on trees, the United States has been too long under water!

So bottom line if you want change in a positive direction in this country of ours you’ll have to get off your butt and see the alternatives.

You know, Tubularsock hates to break this to you but the Democan’ts and the Republican’ts will change NOTHING in your lives ……. El ZERO!

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW!

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW!

 

If CHANGE grew on trees …… cornucopia could happen!

UKRAINE PAIN!

Tubularsock is kind of like an elephant in the respect that he doesn’t forget. As the maimed-stream-news cycle continues …….. now it’s the refugee crisis which they are all animated about but never can figure out WHY this is happening. You know the destabilization of the Middle East by the U.S. and NATO.

It is like the refugee crisis happened in some kind of a vacuum. Only because one would have to put 2 and 2 together which has always been the maimed-stream-new’s problem. You know, that would take journalism to pull off. 

Anyway, Tubularsock has been reading what is happening in the Ukraine and it is truly fascinating.

You see, change is in the air and the discussion is like this (the nutshell version):

If you recall when we left off the U.S. overthrew the Ukraine and put  prime minister Arseni “Jaz” Yatsenyuk into power designated by Victoria Nuland as the man the Americans supported. And Nuland stated in a documented tape, “Fuck the EU” to the resistance to this choice by the EU.

But now the U.S. neocons (which Nuland and her husband are part) want to dump Premier Yatsenyuk (because of corruption) and replace him with the former Georgian Prime Minister Mikhail Saakashvili for new Premier of the Ukraine.

The fun part is that Saakashvili is wanted by an international arrest warrant for abuse of office during his term in Georgia. Saakashvili misappropriated Georgian taxpayers’ money. (New York Times)

Mikhail Saakashvili had emigrated to the US in 2013 and worked closely with the US Neocons. He is one of the key interlocutors of Republican John McCain, who is fighting for a hard line of the United States against Russia. (German Economic News)

Viktoria Siumar (Popular Front Party Deputy, Yatsenyuk’s party) who had previously worked for the US broadcaster Voice of America was named alongside the

US born Minister of Finance Natalia Jaresko and Saakashvili as Yatsenyuk’s possible successors.

Interesting side note: “Natalia Jaresko had previously worked in the US State Department and as an investment banker. In divorce proceedings her husband raised serious allegations against Jaresko, accusing them of corruption and misappropriation of taxpayers ‘money. Jaresko is the EU and the IMF main contact person in the distribution of European and American taxpayers’ money in Ukraine. Official annual reports on the whereabouts of these instructed by the EU and the federal government billions are not known.” (German Economic News)

So bottom line …… does anyone really think that CORRUPTION is any kind of reason for dumping Yatsenyuk? Corruption looks more like a qualification rather than a deterrent.

So what gives?

Well here is what Tubularsock sees that is happening and it is up to you to keep your eye on the ball with Tubularsock because Tubularsock only has four eyes plus his “third” eye and it’s the “third” eye which has focused on THIS BASIC FACT:

Yatsenyuk is against privatization of state property!

Or at least that is what he has said but Saakashvili (the new neocons darling) has also accused him of delaying reforms and being in the hands of the oligarchs especially Igor Kolomoysksi giving him favors in the privatization of the Ukrainian aviation industry.

Of course Yatsenjuk says that’s bull shit! (Це ЛАЙНО БИКА! in Ukrainian.)

According to Yatsenyuk it will be impossible to fight corruption without changing the country’s system of government in the Ukraine.

“The system of government in Ukraine has in fact remained the same as it was under the Soviet Union”, according to Yatsenyuk.

Currently, at least according to polls, 72% of Ukrainians think the government is going “in the wrong direction”. Two-thirds of Ukrainians have an “unfavorable” view of President Petro Poroshenko while 85% disapproved of Yatsenyuk.(Christian Science Monitor)

But really, what do the Ukrainian People know?

If you want the next down-field-play in the Ukrainian Drama ask the neocons they seem to run the inside track.

President Petro Poroshenko (L) and Mikhail Saakashvili

President Petro Poroshenko (L) and Mikhail Saakashvili

Oh, did Tubularsock forget to mention that Saakashvili is a devotee of Reagan and Thatcher?

And that during the Bush Administration Georgia under Saakashvili’s leadership “. . . did all it could to become a staunch U.S. ally: It is the largest non-NATO member of the international security force in Afghanistan and, according to a report by the Open Society Foundation, participated in the CIA’s “extraordinary renditions” program detaining alleged enemy combatants in the war on terror.”(BuzzFeedNews 10/28/13)

Hey, could it get better than that for a neocon?

AIN’T LIFE A BITCH: UKRAINE

With Tubularsock focused on his run for the White House which if elected will be painted RED as a reminder of the amount of blood the U.S. has demanded from the rest of the world. They just are not cooperating with the U.S. imperial takeover.

Damn foreigners …… wanting to do it their way and they DON’T EVEN SPEAK ENGLISH!

The current President of the Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko has petitioned the Constitutional Court of Ukraine to: “. . . acknowledge that the law ‘on the removal of the presidential title from Viktor Yanukovych’ as unconstitutional.”

Now ain’t that the shit!

Petro Poroshenko “. . . admitted prior to 26 February 2014, to the EU’s investigator, and right after the February 22nd overthrow of Yanukovych, that the overthrow was a coup . . .”

He also admitted “. . . that it was even a false flag operation, in which the snipers, who were dressed as if they were Ukrainian Security Bureau troops, were actually not . . .”

The EU investigator’s report stated, “. . . all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers, from both sides, among policemen and people from the streets, that they were the same snipers, killing people from both sides . . . Behind the snipers, it was not Yanukovych, but it was somebody from the new coalition.”

Now anyone who has followed this American orchestrated Ukrainian overthrow and the subsequent blaming of the “Russian-invasion” of Ukraine will not be surprised that the Nazis that have been put in power by the American State Department’s very own Victoria Nuland are now planning to assemble in Kiev on July 3rd to overthrow Poroshenko unless he restarts right now the war against the Donbass region.

These Nazi are the same group that the U.S. hired for the coup and for the ethnic cleansing campaign in Ukraine’s former Donbass region which the Nazi-Loving-Nuland supported.

Meanwhile back at the ranch ……..

The UN General Assembly’s Third Committee passed a Russia-proposed resolution condemning attempts to glorify Nazism ideology and denial of German Nazi war crimes. The US, Canada and Ukraine were the only countries to vote against it.

So, if the Constitutional Court of Ukraine grants Poroshenko’s petition “. . . then the appointment of Arseniy Yatsenyuk by the U.S. State Department’s Victoria Nuland on 4 February 2014, which was confirmed by the Ukrainian parliament (or Rada) at the end of the coup on February 26th, and the other appointments which were made, including that of Oleksandr Turchynov to fill in for Yanukovych as caretaker President until one of the junta’s chosen candidates would be ‘elected’ on May 25th of 2014, which ‘election’ Poroshenko won — all of this was illegal.” (Eric Zuesse, “Ukraine’s Pres. Poroshenko Says Overthrow of Yanukovych Was a Coup”)

Are you following this?

Now is Petro Poroshenko doing this because he see the writing on the wall that the U.S. is about to toss him out and install the Nazis directly and forget all pretense in order to go after Russia?one way dead end

And if that is the case then the fact that Poroskenko’s election was illegal would also make the new installed Nazi Ukrainian Government illegal as well.

Which might play into Poroskenko hands at a later date.

Meanwhile back at the ranch ……..

US Will Provide Weapons For NATO Commandos Attack Ukrainian Separatists” (Kurt Nimmo,  Global Research)

Which is a clear sign that the U.S. is leaning toward the Nazis desire to resume attacking Donbass.

So the game is simple. We have the Neocons in the form of Victoria Nuland pressuring Obummer to back the Nazi’s against the Russians. And Samantha Powers voting against the anti-Nazi Russian proposal at the U.N. because it was the Russians that proposed it and the U.S. is backing Nazis in Ukraine.

You know, Obummer is just rotten at foreign policy as well as health care. The boy has no backbone. Supporting Nazis? Supporting ISIS? Supporting Corporate Profit Care?

Is this country just a little bit sick in the head, or what?

Meanwhile back at the ranch ……..

“Gazprom and Royal Dutch Shell are teaming up on several energy projects that will benefit both. The two energy companies have agreed to build an expansion of the Nord Stream Pipeline, a major natural gas pipeline that travels beneath the Baltic Sea. The pipeline is a priority for Russia, which will allow it to expand its natural gas exports to Europe while also cutting out Ukraine from the mix.” (Charles Kennedy, OilPrice.com) Gazprom-Shell logo

So it’s business as usual for the oil corporations even with all these sanctions that the U.S. forced on the Russians over the Ukraine mess. You see money and corporate-power-plays trump the games being played out by mere nation states. And as TPP proceeds the future will just be directed by CEO’s not Presidents.

But does it matter? Our vote really doesn’t count for either anyway.
