REMEMBER SYRIA?

The question of the hour …… WHEN IS INTERVENTION in someone else’s country not a war?

 

Somehow Tubularsock recalls Fat-Tweet-Trump on the campaign trail in October of 2016 saying, “What we should do is focus on ISIS. We should not be focusing on Syria, you’re going to end up in World War III over Syria if we listen to Hillary Clinton.”

Well, Tubularsock figures that FTT did listen to Hillary Clinton and this last week Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced that the United States with several thousand troops on the ground in Syria will keep those troops there until the government of President Bashar al-Assad is overthrown.

 

So now, WE ARE BACK TO REGIME CHANGE again.
Though in truth we never really left the idea … and like Obummer before him, Orange Tweet just lied.

Which makes him in with Obummer and the Witch Clinton. However Trump’s stay in Syria will be the most “Bigly” stay “Ever”! No one’s stay in Syria has EVER been as BIGLY!

Just goes to show you how weak and slimy Fat-Tweet-Trump happens to be. All the signs of a small dick. Thank you Stormy.

But Tubularsock would say that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson statement is what really takes the cake as when he spouted, “President Bashar al-Assad regime is corrupt, and its methods of governance and economic development have increasingly excluded certain ethnic and religious groups.”

And Saudi Arabia? Israel? Ukraine? Sounds pretty close to all of them but we’re not sending troops into those “allies” countries, now are we …… yet.

It appears that Tillerson is getting confused between the actions of the Assad Administration and the actions of the Trump Administration and their social and economic policies toward their respective citizens.

Oh well, who counts?

So let’s get real and down right personal. Has a Syrian EVER caused YOU any harm in your entire life?

Well?

You see, that is why 9/11 shouldn’t be taken so seriously by Americans. Our country 9/11’s Syria EVERYDAY and that seems to be accepted by the American public. So let’s get over those damn 3000 dead and move on.

The U.S. 9/11’ed Iraq, Libya, and even Yemen and we want to push on to Iran!

And you recall the American’s silly question after 9/11, right?

“Why did they attack us?”
And the Bush Administration said it was BECAUSE OF OUR FREEDOM?

Yeah …… our freedom to blow them up at will. Our freedom to “influence” their elections. Our freedom to take their resources.

If this question and answer seems ridiculous to you then you are on the correct track.

If this is still your question, then ask yourself which country in the world has been at war 222 out of 239 Years of its existence? Our country has been at war 93% of our time calculated as of March 19, 2017. (http://freakonometrics.hypotheses.org/50473)

AND MANY OF THESE WARS THE U.S. WERE THE AGGRESSOR!

MAYBE MOST IF THE OVERALL VIEW IS TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION.

 

And our goal is to destabilize the country or regions in order to control. The United States has no interest in the people but with their resources and geographic positioning.

That is why we’ll bomb a village, town, or city to “save” it! OH, but ONLY in the name of humanity!

So in truth 9/11 was just “blowback” we deserved.
But American’s were made to believe that “THEY” did it to us!
THE DECEIVED ARE DIRECTED MORE EASILY!

POLITICAL MISPERCEPTION

 

He has to be kidding, right? No really.

The humor value alone is worth the price of admission.

Exhibit A:

What The Fuck? Where in the hell does Albino-Boy get the idea that HIS PRESENCE dignifies any event?

Now that is funny.

And to include Orange-Turd as well?

Priceless.

Those two’s existence disrespects our soldiers, our flag and our national anthem. If ANY of those things even deserves respect at all! Another story for another day.

You may be aware, or not, that before 2009, NFL players didn’t stand for the national anthem because they stayed in the locker room before the game. And therefore the “oh say can you see” didn’t work because they couldn’t because they were in the locker room!

Players didn’t start to stand on the field before the game until AFTER the U.S. Department of Defense started to PAY the NFL $5.4 million TO STAGE, on the field ceremonies, to make players seem more “patriotic” so as to increase military recruitment.

So as of 2009, the flag and the national anthem became PRODUCT PLACEMENT paid for by the Department of Defense.

That is what all those military “fly overs” are all about …. Patriotism as Product.

BUY TODAY …. DIE TOMORROW MOTHERFUCKERS!

Have you ever noticed that the CORE of PATRIOTISM is RIOT?

EVER WONDER WHY?

Remember,

the force IS you! Thanks Yoda.

A TUBULARSOCK EXCLUSIVE:
NEWS BEFORE IT HAPPENS!

Ok as usual, Tubularsock has an insider’s perspective into the current administration being that as Secretary of the Deplorables Tubularsock is on the “right” side of the right government policies of The Super-Bigly Great Orange One!

Rumor has it that Tubularsock has positioned himself in the current West Wing of the White House in the boiler-room where he has control of the heating and cooling of the building. Being the ONLY member of the current administration that knows the secret codes for the indoor environment of the White House puts Tubularsock in an enviable power position.

So when it was reviled by the New York Signs, a hostile progressive publication, that the
Secretary of the Deplorables had been subpoenaed by Robert Mueller much anticipation was anticipated. And as that anticipated anticipation grew the left-stream-press concluded that Russia was involved!

 

As Tubularsock, “. . . first hand coverage, second hand news”, a non-biased news outlet has reported through an official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the media, that Russia may have a relationship with the Secretary of the Deplorables but this was denied by the administration.

However it was noted by a former Secret Service agent who did not wish to be identified that some ties with the Russian Government may be true. Some documentation was procured from this individual as seen below.

 

“I hasten to point out that in no sense do I claim the ideas I am submitting are a real thing. They constitute a theory, not a thesis”, stated the former Secret Service agent.

But an American official familiar with the talks with Mueller, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly stated, “some pictures are really worth a thousand words”.

Yet the investigation conducted by the sharp-eyed-reporters from Tubularsock, “. . . first hand coverage, second hand news”, a non-biased news outlet has produced an actual photograph that may add some light to the Trump-Tube Russian connection.

 

Now sure Felix Sater has Russian connections! Hell, he’s Russian!

When asked, Tubularsock, Trump’s Secretary of the Deplorables, stated, “Felix Sater is a Russian-American gangster of the old school. You know, a classical American tradition type Eliot Ness gangster. It is this solid American criminal tradition that our President believes in …… make  America Great again!”

Felix Sater has deep financial connections to Trump and to Russia. Felix Sater has been a friend of Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen since childhood, and is an important Trump business partner who worked out of Trump Tower.

But funny, when Donald was asked about his connections with Felix, Trump said, “I’m not that familiar with him.”

Which would be expected for Trump to say especially after his associate Felix Sater, described his ambitions in emails to Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen.

In those emails Sater states, “Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.” (New York Times … for real!)

So we all have, so far, three possible Russian connections with Trump.

The first is the meeting in Trump Tower between Russian agents and Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner.

The second connection is the attempt by Republican operative Peter W. Smith to obtain Hillary Clinton’s emails through Russian hackers. According to The Wall Street Journal “Robert Mueller is investigating Michael Flynn’s connection to this operation”.

And the third connection is Felix Sater.

Looks like a full plate.

 

But in truth the Russian connection is there but it is mostly bullshit. The real deal is going to be the evidence that is being collected on financial crimes, including potential money laundering that is where Donald and his family are going to go down!

 

 

 

Capitalism’s Contribution: looting, lying, and acting obscene

© 2017 Dan Stevenson III

the die is cast
the money on the table
some people may die
is it really that bad
just look at the profit
it’s ours ‘cuz we’re able

it’s only good business
it’s just what we do
if they’re in the way
what are we spoze to do
if we don’t take advantage
we’re all going to lose

it’s there for the taking
the law’s on our side
we made it that way
the game being played
it’s really their fault
if they don’t step aside

sure we’ll help their children
we’ll put them in camps
we’ll do what we can
you must understand
it’s best that you see
we have a smart stance

we’ve done this forever
our heritage, you know
it’s way too important
to just let it go
so call in security
to protect what is so

it is our right
our history complete
we don’t mind doing
what has to be done
until the next time
with a butt of a gun

the damage we do
to land, water, and air
is not of concern or
cause for despair
we donate most heavily
for orphan repair

the profit which is
the ultimate treasure
can be used to buy
all in good measure
the next exploitation
to protect this great nation

sure some have to die
for others to live
but really we’ve found
it’s just like it is
not one thing to worry
or even forgive

so stack up that money
and oxygen tanks
so we can survive
as others all die
‘cause we got the talent
when the earth’s out of balance

yet some keep on yelling
it’s too late to correct
but what do they know
with no portfolio
our investment appreciates
the longer we go

it’s called progress you sillies
you don’t even know that
if you don’t risk
you’re just scaredy-cats
so count yourselves in
all the way to the end

so come on no worries
for what we do know
is dow jones is up
we’ve got money to burn
at least just enough
to cover the earth’s very last turn!

 

TRUMPTASTIC

It is true that Tubularsock is sitting on his underground deck which is a stones throw from his top floor corner office in Tubularsock’s underground bunker overlook Washington D.C. from Oakland CA. (see Bunker Tour)

Tubularsock does much of his writing from this vantage-point and today is no exception.

So let’s wonder why it has TAKEN THREE YEARS to start to replace Flint, Michigan’s corroded water pipes.

Just in case you have forgotten, three years ago it was discovered that the city’s government, in order TO SAVE MONEY, switched water suppliers from Detroit to the Flint River.

But those same city government officials failed to treat the water with an anti-corrosive agent and by not doing so they proceeded to corrode the lead pipes and thereby poisoning the residents.

Which led to campaign slogans for the next election like, “Vote For Me You’ll Be Dead In A Week”! Ok, maybe not.

So for three years Flint has been drinking and cooking with bottled water. And then last summer scientists (none that lived in Flint) declared that the water was good enough for bathing and hand washing BUT NOT for consumption.

And then this March, Flint residents were expected to start paying the FULL COST for their water even if they can’t drink it! And to top that, 8000 residents are being held responsible FOR NOT PAYING FOR TOXIC WATER by having “tax-liens-for-unpaid-water-bills!

Now think about this. The State of Michigan has agreed (by court order) to put up $97 million to replace any lead or galvanized steel pipes for at least 18,000 homes. And to entitle citizens to have their water tested four times a year as well as access to free bottled water and filters.

It has taken three years and a court battle just to START to rectify this problem.

CAN YOU SAY INFRASTRUCTURE? Not if Orange Tweet doesn’t create jobs that save lives rather than kill people. Donnie has lost his way already just as Shrub and Obummer did before him. Rebuilding America is just economically impossible if over 60% of our borrowed money go to blow people up. INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENT WILL NOT HAPPEN!

BUT in the fiscal year of 2016 the U.S. Government spent $654.5 million on Hellfire Missiles alone. Which have all blown up so ………

And Every hour in 2016, taxpayers in United States paid $116,063 for Predator and Reaper Drones.

AND FOR WHAT? All the wars we have started are still going on so when Orange Tweet calls somebody a looser he may want to look at the State of the Nation he is supposed to be leading.

The ONLY comfort one can draw from all of this is Donnie is as stupid as the country he Tweets from. A guy that can’t even tweet correctly as “covfefe” now has proven.

Man! The fucker can’t even tweet correctly any more. Has anybody checked for lead pipes in the White House lately?

 

WON’T YOU HOLD MY HAND?

 

The amount of time spent on the Trump’s hands you’d think that the entire Middle Eastern trip was based on hand holding. Now Orange Tweet did damn near kiss the fucking Saudi king’s ass but who counts? Anyway, far be it for Tubularsock to get in the way of the maimed-stream-media’s news flow of worthless shit. Only because it is just too fun!

They kept Orange Tweet on a short leash and he read all the words he was given so we can all agree that he was SO PRESIDENTIAL.

As long as he stays in puppet mode all will be “handled”. See, the Deep State is benevolent.

 

 

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:
