LOST VALUES — SING ALONG!

Remember that old Pete Seeger folk song,

Where have all the values gone?
Long time passing

Where have all the values gone?
Long time ago

Where have all the values gone?
We have dumped them every one

When will we ever learn?
When will we ever learn?

OR WAS THAT FLOWERS?

Whatever!

Unless you have be living in a cave in Siberia you may have noticed that the values that the United States once upheld (even if they were not perfect) have pretty much been eliminated.

You remember, things like lying, cheating, torture, conflict of interest, caring for others, killing, the rule of law, taking responsibility for your actions, democracy …….. you know stuff like that.

WE HAVE NO LEADERS IN THE UNITED STATES THAT HAVE ANY OF THOSE VALUES. LET ALONE A LEADER TO STAND UP FOR THEM!

Oh sure, before they are elected they spout those values and after they are elected they spout those values but THEY NEVER SPROUT those values once they are in office. NEVER!

And when false values are the watchword of the day we really start to see for ourselves the downfall and breakup of our society.

Because if we, as a society, don’t have strong values to promote and uphold, then we have NOTHING.

If people don’t have honor within them the chances for them to be an honorable person is diminished.

And that is where we stand right now, with “one foot over the line” or was that “one toke”? Sweet Jesus.

Whatever!

So, let Tubularsock run you through an easy one, TORTURE.

THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO EVER USE TORTURE ON ANIMALS OR HUMANS EVER, PERIOD. This has to be a core value because anything less leaves you with no honor of self, period.

And yet the current President of the United States believes that it “works” and has stated that he believes in it.

And now we see that the Congress of the United States believes in torture, as well, thereby they have approved a Torturer to head the CIA, “Bloody Gina”.

And of course whenever Torture is mentioned fucking Dick Cheney is brought out of his lair to expound upon its virtues.

And Cheney, loves the virtues of torture so much that he loves to be beaten by Lynn in their dungeon to bring about sexual arousal. “Beat me, beat me Lynn!”

And just to show you that Tubularsock isn’t some liberal goody-goody, Tubularsock’s fantasy has always been meeting Dick Cheney in some dark alleyway and in one rapid movement slicing his chest cavity open with a rusty Boy Scout knife and reaching in and pulling out his beating bloody stolen heart and throwing it into a pig pen to be consumed! They’ll eat anything!

But hey, won’t happen because Tubularsock has taken an anger management seminar.

AND the fact that the statistical chances of Tubularsock encountering Dick Cheney in a dark alleyway is “ZERO” so there you go …….. math wins out!

Of course, “Bloody Gina” would not say that torture was MORALLY WRONG because she ran a torture site and should be in jail as a war criminal rather than made the head of the CIA!

But the United States has lost that value, morality.

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW!

Another value we have lost is TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ACTIONS. Have you noticed that?

“Bloody Gina” was the chief of staff for Jose Rodriguez, the director of the CIA National Clandestine Service. She was responsible for drafting a cable ordering the shredding of videotapes depicting torture sessions, despite a court order staying their destruction.

That action is against the law but not only did she “follow orders” as any good German SS solider would do BUT THE ONLY ACTION taken by any governmental body for a blatant illegal action was to promote her to CIA Director.

So with that you can throw out the RULE OF LAW as another lost value.

And remember if the RULE OF LAW principle was really practiced then George, Dick, Don, Condo, Killery, Dump, Obummer would ALL be in prison today for war crimes.

However, that value has been tossed aside.

Well, for the ruling class anyway. But don’t you jaywalk! You’ll be in the clinker!

The list goes on and on but the values are lost to our nation and won’t be coming back any time soon. The cracks in the Republic are rapidly expanding and Donald Trump is no more to blame than the American population for sitting by and selling out our principles.

As for Tubularsock, you’ll find him,
“sittin’ on the dock of the Bay, wasting time”

WHATEVER!

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.

 

 

OUTSOURCED ARMY

THEY HAVE TO BE KIDDING!

Orange Tweet is really an inspiration for the advancement of stupidity. No not because of his tweet attention-span, nor his small limp hands and bigly butt. No those are just side line embarrassing.

When President Orange Tweet says he wants to make America Great Again he doesn’t mean 1940’s or 1950’s GREAT! No he means British Empire Great like 17 and 18 hundreds GREAT! Viceroy Great. And who says you can’t go backward!

And you all know how the “free market system” works right? You know competition brings the price down, right? And because of that, government needs to “privatize” many of its agencies because the private sector can do it cheaper than the government can do it.

Take for example, WAR. If the United States privatizes its military then what money we can all save ……… such a deal.

Now this isn’t a Trump idea. He doesn’t have the ability to think let alone creatively. No this goes way back as far as war itself. Some people fight and some people supply the fighters. And just for fun, stop and guess who gets rich and who gets dead.

And the capitalistic system has improved upon this basic idea a thousand fold by adding the investing class to the mix. Now there are those who fight the war, those who supply the fighters, AND those who INVEST in the suppliers who supply the fighter who fight the war. See, that is called capitalism because the investing class are even further away from being dead from war but profit the most from it. Clever yes?

Now check this out. The military-industrial-complex has come up with this really fun idea and that is to privatize armies so the U.S. Government can save money.

We have already been doing this over there is that hostile Middle East and in Africa as well. But this savings is really a deal!

Funny that. Presently a “private soldier” (once called a mercenary) makes in salary about three times more than an American soldier. So the salary cost of the mercenary army would be THREE TIME HIGHER than it is now.

Would you care to venture a guess how this cost alone is cheaper?

And then you have the “standard” corporate operational costs for maintaining a mercenary army with the small problem of loyalty to MONEY rather than any insane patriotic reasoning so as to have the added burden of losing your “army” to the highest bidder.

Damn tricky, eh?

Now the U.S. has already had this continuous problem in the mercenary terrorists we have hired, trained and supplied just to have them jump sides and end up fighting us rather than doing as we paid them to do. Some of this has been based on deceit and some of this is due to a better deal going down.

When money is the bases of the commitment the playing field changes and your terrorists buddy today is your terrorist enemy tomorrow based on a couple of bucks.

 

And just who is pushing this insane idea?

Well the Bowery Boys, Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner, formally known as the Dead End Kids for you movie buffs.

Erik Prince the founder of the murdering thugs Blackwater Worldwide and Stephen Feinberg, a billionaire financier who owns the giant military contractor DynCorp International and Tubularsock believes sucks out babies brains for lunch (warning: this latter thought may be an alterNUT fact, be advised!) have offered up their proposals at Bannon’s and Kushner’s request.

Wow, Tubularsock just wonders with these four minds coming together, “What Could Possibly Go Wrong?”

Now Tubularsock, in case you haven’t noticed, wants to remind you that after 16 years WE ARE STILL MAKING WAR ON AFGHANISTAN.

You remember Afghanistan, right? The country right after 9/11 we started a war with.
And just to remind you how we did that it went down like this:

Bush and the boys and the bitch told the Taliban that they would have to hand over Osama bin Laden to the U.S. for the 9/11 crime or we would BOMB THEM!

The Taliban agreed to hand over Osama bin Laden to the U.S. for the 9/11 crime if and when the United States provided PROOF that Osama bin Laden was guilty of this crime. You remember that silly notion, a man is innocent until PROVEN guilty don’t you?

That is a fundamental legal principle of the United States not Afghanistan!

Well, the United States didn’t have any proof that he was directly involved.  He said he wasn’t involved in 9/11 directly. And to this day there has been no real proof that he was directly involved EXCEPT for the forged CIA tape prominently promoted on YouTube! But it was well known that bin Laden was a CIA asset so Tubularsock figures that it depends on which side of the fence he was working at any given time.

So we bomb them! And then we bomb them. And then we bomb them ……………  And even the old cliche that we were going to bomb them back into the Stone Age was used by some but they hadn’t left the Stone Age so they didn’t seem to noticed except all their wedding parties we annihilated. Oh, and their women and children were slaughtered but hey, THAT’S WAR don’t ya know!

Just reminds one of the callousness of war. Those who were murdered on 9/11 are precious souls but those we blow apart in Afghanistan are just collateral damage and how dare they run under our bombs! They act like they live there!

So now, 16 years of quagmire and Trump is thinking to “fix” Afghanistan by spending billions and billions of more dollars for a cheap fix: MERCENARY ARMIES provided by private enterprise corporations.

And they are even thinking of picking an American Viceroy who would directly report to Trump and run the Afghanistan mission with an outsourced army and a mission of “do whatever it takes to pacify Afghanistan”!

From Tubularsock’s point of view it is refreshing to have the lunatic fringe right out there in the open for a change unlike Killary’s style or Obomba’s style of putting up the false-bull-shit-front but still fucking you up the ass! But which of these elite assholes are more dangerous is a toss up!

Tube book headingSAVED AGAIN!

It is perfect. Our American “leaders” are out to “protect” us again!

And where do they rush to ban travel from but Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and Sudan?

All countries, with the exception of Iran, that THE U.S. HAVE BOMBED! And Iran has been advertised for years TO BE BOMBED!

So once again the U.S. Governmental “leaders” send the cavalry in the WRONG DIRECTION. And pump up and puff out their chests like something meaningful has been accomplished!

On 9/11, 15 Saudi Arabian Terrorists, 2 United Arab Emirates Terrorists, 1 Egyptian Terrorist and 1 Lebanese Terrorist attacked New York and killed close to 3000 people.

So did we RETALIATE by bombing the United Arab Emirates or Saudi Arabia?

OR Egypt? Lebanon?

NO!

The United States RETALIATED by attacking AFGHANISTAN and we are still attacking Afghanistan.

And then we took our mighty JUSTICE and started a war with IRAQ!

NOW THAT IS WHAT TUBULARSOCK CALLS LEADERSHIP!

Yep. Our country just HAS TO get the Academy Award THIS YEAR for BEST AT BEING WORSE!

Sure there are a lot of supporting actors that have helped this on its way and Tubularsock would be amiss if he didn’t thank Pathetic George and his sidekick Tortured Cheney. Hey, you live with fucking Lynn for five minutes and you’d be tortured too. But he likes it! Beat me, beat me.

And sure there was known-unknown Donnie, and brain dead Condo, old blue douchebag Barbara who does have to be given some credit for spawning Pathetic George. It is a little known alternate fact that Tubularsock is mean-spiritedly making up on the spot, that Pathetic George was really aborted and was left on the Capitol steps only to found by a wandering-cheney and brought to life.

Oh my how Tubularsock has digressed.

There also was Step-En-Fetch-It-Hope-And-Change-Obummer who lulled the lost back to the possibility of changing the direction of our country only to take a HUGE SHIT on their heads that was so convincing that they all rallied around the Wicked-Bitch-From-The-West-Hillary who promised “MORE OF THE SAME SHIT”.

And just as luck would have it THE RUSSIANS SAVED US!
Well the maimed stream press seems to be promoting a different slant to their alternate-fact news but Tubularsock is going with his own alternate facts.

Which leads us to OUR very own ……….. President Orange Tweeter Feed!

My my my ……….. the child in the oval office.

Oh look, oh look ……… gosh, POTF can sign his name.

trube-trump-crayon

Oh another signing, another crayon.

Oh, oh, hold up your work. It’s so pretty. Good job!

tube-trump-see

The GREAT thing about having America Great Again is that now the DEPLORABLES have someone to believe in.

Now the brain-dead “liberals” had step-en-fetch-it and now the brain-dead deplorables have Orangie-Tweet-Boy. See how GREAT America has become! Just like Leave It To Beaver.

So with supporting actors like those and a 15 BILLION DOLLAR WALL Americans deserve the Academy Award!

Hell, Thelma and Louise isn’t the only movie that can GO OVER THE EDGE!

See you at the bottom.

NSA Heading

 

tube-russians-did-it

THE RUSSIANS DID IT?

Now why is it that YOU and Tubularsock, as American Citizens, have to depend on the RUSSIANS to hack the emails of our politicians so WE AMERICANS can read the truth?

THAT SHOULD BE THE REAL CONCERN, DON’T YOU THINK?

Perhaps it is because we are continuing being lied to by Hillary, Trump and the rest of our political establishment.

“I did not have sex with that woman”. Thanks Bill, we know, we know.

“I am not a crook!”. Thanks Dick, we know, we know.

“We KNOW that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction” Thanks George W. we know, we know.

“The NSA DOES NOT spy on Americans”. Thanks James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence. We know, we know!

“The North Vietnamese regime . . . conducted further deliberate attacks against U.S. naval vessels . . .”. Thanks Lyndon, we know, we know.

A “. . . report that’s been pretty well confirmed, that [9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta] did go to Prague and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service . . .”. Thanks Dick Cheney, we know, we know after even the CIA told you this was a false report the day before you said it on TV!

A committee in the House of Representatives in 2004 identified “237 misleading statements about the threat posed by Iraq that were made by President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Secretary Rumsfeld, Secretary Powell, and National Security Advisor Rice. Thanks, we know, we know.

“Osama bin Laden DID IT from a cave!” We know, we know.

And sure steel buildings free fall into their own footprint from office fires BUT ONLY THREE TIMES ON ONE DAY IN ALL OF WORLD HISTORY! We know, we know.

So somehow when Hillary’s and Moderator Wallace’s exchanges in the last debate defended this “intelligence knowledge” that the Russian’s did it ……… we should pause and just wonder where that number 17 that Hillary used came from. Who said so?

Clinton: “We have 17, 17 intelligence agencies, civilian and military who have all concluded that these espionage attacks, these cyber attacks, come from the highest levels of the Kremlin. And they are designed to influence our election. I find that deeply disturbing.”
Trump: You have no idea.
Clinton: I am quoting 17, 17 — do you doubt?
Trump: Our country has no idea.
Clinton: Our military and civilian –
Trump: Yeah, I doubt it, I doubt it.
And then the moderator, “Wallace: “. . .The top national security officials of this country do believe that Russia has been behind these hacks. Even if you don’t know for sure whether they are . . .”

tube-drinkspy

Oh “the who said so” was JAMES CLAPPER and Jeh Johnson, the secretary of Homeland Security with words like:

“The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident . . .”

We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts . . .”

“. . . are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts.”

“the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques . . .”

BUT NO STRAIGHT TALK LIKE HERE IS THE PROOF THAT THE RUSSIAN’S DID IT! THERE IS NO PROOF JUST THOSE FAMOUS  “SIMILAR TACTICS”. Well with those “similar tactics” the NSA itself could have done it!

You know, “scope and sensitivity” just doesn’t cut it for Tubularsock.

Trump for all Tubularsock dislikes the guy is correct …… “Our country has no idea”.

So, Tubularsock just would like to take this opportunity to thank Vlad for his contribution to American Democracy. It is sure a round about way to get any political truth when we have that “free press” all over the place but hey, Thanks Vlad!

Tube paint sig

DO ONTO OTHERS?

Now many of you may not have seen this view. The photo was taken from inside Trump Tower looking out from the lobby. Oh sure you are going ask, “How did Tubularsock get into the Trump Tower lobby?” Well, “. . . we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don’t know we don’t know” and it is the unknown unknowns that would answer that question!

Now that Tubularsock has cleared up that question, the rest is known.

Tubularsock was invited, just this morning, by Don, to donate $3.00 and maybe win a chance to have dinner with him. BUT, Tubularsock had to donate his $3.00 within the next 24 hours! Decisions, decisions. Don also made it clear to Tubularsock that Hillary charges $250,000.00 for a chance to have dinner with her and hear her “. . . belittle and write off as “deplorable” humans who don’t belong in her America”.

Well, Tubularsock was taken by Don’s statement that, “Unlike Hillary, I want to hear your concerns. I want to hear your ideas. I want to hear your vision for a freer, safer, and more prosperous America. Now join me, Friend, as my special guest for dinner at our next fundraiser.”

So you can see that being a Friend of Donnie brings Tubularsock into the inner circle!

So Tubularsock dressed accordingly and headed over to the Trump Tower …….. yes Tubularsock is excited!
