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?

HAY! COMEY OVER HERE!

Have you ever wondered if the CIA ever hacked Russian elections? Well yes, they have. And about every other nation in the world.

So one could figure that the SVR RF would return the favor. After all, Russians are nice people too.

And has it ever crossed your mind that Orange Tweet and his family ever used Russian money in their world-wide business dealings.

Well, does the Pope shit in the woods? (Trust Tubularsock here, that is what makes “Holy-Shit”!)

So here we are spending a huge amount of public air equal to any major environmental disaster expounding on what EVERYONE already knows. But the new EPA isn’t interested any longer with the protection of the environment because Orange Tweet doesn’t believe in protecting air and water quality because there may be a slight possibility of A coal miner getting A job.

Now when Orange Tweet was asked recently have, “. . . you, your family, your businesses, your surrogates have accepted any investments, any loans from Russian individuals or institutions . . .”, his answer was, “I have nothing to do with Russia. I have no investments in Russia. None whatsoever.”

So there! THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA has said NO!

So is he lying again? YES and NO.

The question that was asked was do “. . . you, your family, your businesses, your surrogates have accepted any investments, any loans from Russian individuals or institutions . . .”

The answer is, “I have nothing to do with Russia. I have no investments in Russia. None whatsoever.” IT ALL CENTERS AROUND THE “I” and “the investments IN” but like always the maimed-stream-media never pushes the follow up question, “How about your family, your businesses, your surrogates . . .?” And no follow up that would expose that Tweet has wealthy Russians and oligarchs investing in his New York and Dubai properties!

It is similar to the old bait and switch technique, “I never had sex with that woman” or “I am not a crook” or “But we don’t want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.”

We have heard them all lie and even deny that they have even said what they said. And yet 98% of the time no one has to take any responsibility for their actions.

In there lies the problem!

 

Which brings us to James Comey being fired by Orange Tweet.

According to Tweet, “he dismissed the head of the FBI because he “was not doing a good job.”’

Sure seems straight forward, right?

Well, James wouldn’t go along with Tweet on the “Obama wiretapped me” story because as he testified in March, “the Justice Department had ‘“no information”’ to support Trump’s wiretapping allegation”.

And at the same time the FBI was also investigating possible coordination between Trump campaign officials and Russia which they DO HAVE information.

 The recommendation to fire Comey didn’t come from Tweet or from the White House. It was an initiative of US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. They prepared the three page memorandum, which  criticized James Comey and pushed for Comey’s firing. So what is up with that.
It is clear that James Comey thinks on his own and isn’t a “team” player which has been and would have been a problem for whichever Trump team taking the lead at any given moment. That boy has to go!

 

But hold EVERYTHING. Haven’t we seen this before? Massive “news” activity and loud noise draws attention away from the actual devastation and havoc Donald Trump and his minions are heaping on this country. So why the diversion?

So stop watching the monkey and start watching the show! There are bigger issues in this mix and we’ll have to figure them out for ourselves because the “free press” is just too busy with the soap opera. And the first season hasn’t even ended yet!

……….. THE BEAT DOES GOES ON! WE SHALL SEE.

WORLD PEACE — VOTE TUBULARSOCK! ***

tube-for-pres-jet

In any given election those who want your vote will promise you ANYTHING but not Tubularsock. Tubularsock, just like take-out Chinese …. delivers!

Tubularsock has a full scale plan to end war in our time. We are talking PEACE here folks. PEACE for you, PEACE for your children, and PEACE for your grandchildren!

Now how, you ask, can Tubularsock create PEACE and stop war in our time?

SIMPLE!

War is ONLY ABOUT profit. War has nothing to do with bringing “democracy” to other people of the world, or humanitarian concerns about poorer nations, or even caring about others. War is ONLY ABOUT profit!

Now Tubularsock’s A JET IN EVERY GARAGE PROGRAM will keep Boeing, Lockheed Martin,  and Northrop Grumman in the profit column for years to come because EVERY YEAR there will be a new model with all new features! Like the “extras” provided by BAE Systems that will include the Hawk Advanced Jet Trainer that provides sophisticated simulation training for your teenage pilots. Just think of the possibilities!

And don’t forget about the end of “road-rage”! With proper training the new popular “air-rage” will help be prevented by L-3 Communications unmanned aircraft systems. See, nobody there to get angry with! Sweet!

And think of the growth in the building trades. JOBS, JOBS, JOBS when each American family (like Obamacare) will be required to build a three-jet-garage! Can it get better than that!

Tubularsock thinks outside the box AND A VOTE FOR TUBULARSOCK WILL PUT YOU IN THE JET STREAM!

You know how it goes with ALL political discourse. A promise made isn’t a promise because you have to understand the double-speak that is used in ALL political dialogue. Hillary NEVER said she didn’t support TPP she said she didn’t support TPP *** AS WRITTEN *** which means that she will pass TPP as soon as she takes office! (That’s if Obummer and Congress doesn’t sell out the American public sooner!)

AND EVERYONE KNOWS THIS!

This is only brought up by Tubularsock because it is ……. same as it ever was ……..! And when “labor” starts to bemoan this obvious development Tubularsock just wants to be able to say …… Tubularsock Told You So, Dumb Fucks!

But hey, you can always move to Bangladesh if you want a fucking job. So look at the bright side.

But if it was only jobs …….. who cares? But the environmental devastation and the free ride of the corporate order all will fuck things up but hey The Clinton Foundation will make out well so ………

Tubularsock has put in an order recently through Amazon with Space God, Inc. for a huge asteroid to hit Washington, D.C. during a full session of Congress. It was a pretty god deal because postage and handling was FREE!

Give Tubularsock a break! All of these fucking progressives running their hypocritical bull shit about non-violence and all that shit while the black communities have been having to deal with these fucking murderous motherfucking cops every day. Non-violence my ass! Tell that to the cops.

It’s these same progressive asshole that still back Step-An-Fetch-It Obummer as he keeps ass fucking America.   And they’ll swing over to Hillary and her same corporate ass fucking ways. They seem to like it!

No this is not a time for non-violence. This is a time to come out in force and threaten the power structure. It’s the only thing they really understand. You have to become so unpredictable and dangerous that EVERY TIME a person is shot and killed or beaten to death by the cops, the city irrupts.

That is the only thing that gets their attention is when they have to call out the National Guard.

When that happens the protestors need to back off and wait until all is calm and as soon as they leave create havoc again. And just follow this pattern until the cities and the cops involved have to change their behavior or commerce is interrupted.

You don’t have to burn thing down. Ok, maybe a few cop cars for the drama of it but the real power is shutting down commerce and that can be done by causing enough disruption that people stop shopping out of inconvenience.

And remember, you’re out gunned. So the confrontations have to be city wide with small disruptive tactics all over the city at the same time. Do you think the Viet-Cong guerrillas won over the American forces because they faced them off? No, it was because they used tactics that appeared and disappeared EVERYWHERE!

When you meet a superior force, dissolve and reconfigure elsewhere. This is a continuous activity. And can go on for months.

The cops are killing people everyday. And it’s the black population that is taking the heat. So ask that question again …… “Why are they burning down their city?” GET REAL! They don’t own it.

But the trick is continual struggle and disruption over an entire city not just in the neighborhood. That becomes scary and forces change to happen because the bottom line in our society is profit and if that starts to take a hit change will occur because it becomes too expensive for the system NOT to change. They sure won’t do it because they give a shit about YOU!

Knightscope bots

 

 

Tubularsock was sitting reading the German press and ran across this story. The interesting thing is that Tubularsock’s top floor corner office overlooking Washington D.C. from Oakland, CA is a stones throw from Mountain View as the crow flies.

And it took the Germans to fill Tubularsock in on a local story.

A few side notes. Mountain View is a traffic infested dumpy little town south of San Francisco and for the life of Tubularsock where a view of a “mountain” comes into the picture is beyond me!

Yes, the coast range moves along the coast but “mountain” is an exaggeration to say the least.

That being said Knightscope has in reality created seven K5 robots and four of them have already been ordered for use at a technology company.

A K5 is about as tall as a person and is designed to “act friendly and threatening at the same time”. Kind of like your mother-in-law on Thanksgiving!

These little guys are packed with cameras, microphones, weather sensors, navigation equipment and electric motors which allows a K5 to slide on rollers across the floor or parking lot and evaluate it’s surroundings and they are programmed to detect “abnormal behavior”, sure …….. No, these aren’t the droids you’re looking for …..

According to the U.S. Census there are about a million people that work in sentry type jobs in security companies. K5 can do this type of work for less than half the cost of a living person. Their battery lasts for 24 hours and is programed to go to the charging station when low. Recharge time takes 15 minutes. Hey! Every worker needs a break!

And that is exactly why Tubularsock came up with the idea of unionizing them. That, and the fact that a K5 isn’t armed yet. So to organize them is still safe for Tubularsock. But of course drones weren’t armed when they started out either ……… the possibilities are unlimited!

Just a matter of time …….. and as long as the Grand Jury is filled with BOTS there won’t be any indictment against a K5 either!

OIL: SLIP SLIDING AWAY!

Have you noticed that gas prices are down? Wonder why? Did you also notice in this last election cycle that that wasn’t even mentioned by the Democrats as an indicator of how well the Party’s President was doing? Wonder why?

And the biggest surprise is the gas prices came down EVEN WITHOUT the XL pipeline being approved! So much for that stupid argument which was stupid only because the shit oil being pumped out of Canada is for export only and has NOTHING to do with oil prices within the United States.

So what gives America?

Tube gas pump

Now Tubularsock put on his oily rubber boots with the American flag embossed on each boot and stepped right into the middle of the ooze. And here is what was discovered.

Never say Tubularsock is not willing to ooze the extra mile for your knowledge ………

You see in early November Saudi Arabia lowered its oil price per barrel.

Wow. What a nice surprise. And just in time for Christmas too.

You know how those Moslems love Christians.

Now some say that the Saudis did this because by lowering the world oil prices it would fuck up the Assad Government in Syria and put pressure on Iran as well.

And some say that the Saudis are trying to put pressure on North Dakota and it’s shale oil costs. That reasoning goes like this; the cost of extracting shale oil is expensive as opposed to just pumping it out of the ground in the Saudi’s established oil fields.

Driving the oil price down may force some smaller oil shale producers to slow production because they can’t recoup costs when oil on the commodity market hits below $80 a barrel.

And then some say that the Saudis lowered the price of crude to fuck up Putin and the Ukraine mess. Russia helps to balance its budget by selling oil. If the price goes down it puts the pressure on the Russian economy and the U.S. imposed sanctions put a bigger squeeze on the Russians.

Now the Saudis say that their influence is not as powerful as it once was and the world supply and demand has caused this dip in crude oil prices.

So Saudi Arabia dumping oil into the market is to just to get a competitive edge. Hmmm.

Just after Crimea voted to rejoin Russia Obummer happened to just drop in on Riyadh. You know, like gosh I was just in the neighborhood and thought we’d have a meeting.

“Leonid Fedun, a co-owner of the private oil firm Lukoil, cited President Barack Obama’s visit to Riyadh in March. “Obama travelled to meet the king of Saudi Arabia just after the Crimea events to push him to these actions (to lower the oil price),” Fedun, whose firm has large U.S. assets, said last month.” (Reuters)

New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, wrote last month, “Is it just my imagination or is there a global oil war underway pitting the United States and Saudi Arabia on one side against Russia and Iran on the other?”

Tubularsock wouldn’t be surprised. Of course it must be just another one of those conspiracy theories.

In September U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made a trip to Saudi Arabia because he was just passing through town. “When asked if his discussions had touched on Russia’s need for oil above $100 to balance its budget, he smiled and said: “They (Saudis) are very, very well aware of their ability to have an impact on global oil prices.”(Reuters)

But for Tubularsock the most logical explanation, the one that seems most reasonable is that Saudi Arabia has DECLARED WAR on North Dakota!

And the question which remains is are we as Americans going to just sit back and let this happen OR do we do what we do best …….. send in HUMANITARIAN TROOPS and bomb and drone and destroy North Dakota in order to save democracy!

The answer is really up to YOU America!

Oh well, there may be another thing for Americans to take a look at. Just maybe the price of gasoline can be manipulated by ahhh ……. somebody.

Usually the price of gas goes up and up and up when there is trouble in the Middle East but since there is no trouble in the Middle East the price of gasoline has gone down.

Funny how that works.
