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?

COP COLLATERAL DAMAGE

Why is Tubularsock not surprised? It was just a matter of time. And Tubularsock only can see a silver lining in this COPS DEAD DALLAS AFFAIR.

It is part of the Bring The War Home Program and once again it is working.

Somehow my heart doesn’t really go out to the dead cops and their families. Somehow it seems like justice served. And in Dallas, Texas! Could it get more perfect than that?

Now Tubularsock knows others response to Tubularsock’s line of reasoning but look at it.

Really, let’s just call it collateral damage. Isn’t that how we Americans write off all those dead people in other countries that Obama and the boys kill everyday?

Why even get worked up over a few dead cops?

The cops have been slaughtering black people without ANY responsibility for their actions. They have just been murdering them in plain site in front of video cameras and witnesses and the JUSTICE system looks at the videos and takes down the “facts” from the witnesses and proclaims that THE KILLING OF BLACK PEOPLE WAS DONE IN THE LINE OF DUTY. And then that cop is put back on the street to “protect and serve”.

This is done over and over and over throughout the nation to the point that it is clear that if one is not held accountable for their actions then there is no justice.

A large number of cops are ex-military, who when they come home from killing Iraqis and Afghans have a pretty limited range of job skills and so they go into police work.

The problem here is that military and police training are really different but similar. And the intention of the job is totally different. But the infusion of military style equipment has blurred the lines even more. It is clear that that reality hasn’t translated well into domestic policing. So you get cops thinking that they are on patrol in Baghdad rather than Detroit and there lies just one of the problems.

Now we have a Black Man with military training taking “justice” into his own hands and doing what any red blooded American would do by just copying the same outline of “justice” that the police have been handing out.

Sure. It looks different but both are just different sides of the same coin.

JOHNSON

If Micah Johnson had done what he had done in Kabul, Afghanistan rather than in Dallas, Texas he would have gotten a medal! Which may be worth considering when we train and send soldiers off to “selectively” kill people. The “blowback” can be the unintended consequence.

So the same money spent training ex-military cops and ex-military civilians come from the same source. The United States Government!

WE HAVE CREATED A MONSTER OF OUR OWN MAKING.

But the head of the monster comes from a different place.

A major mind-set of OUR MONSTER was created with, of course 9/11. The entire defense department, the entire security apparatus, the entire intelligence bureaucracy did not protect the country from attack yet NO ONE was removed from duty for a complete failure of and dereliction of that duty. Rather many were promoted and some even given medals for a job well done!

Thereby setting the tone from a “leadership” role that people are not responsible for their actions.

tube

 

And then Obama enters and took the position with his “Look Forward and not Back” that SOME PEOPLE were NOT RESPONSIBLE for their illegal actions as in torture, pre-emptive strikes on countries that never attacked us, rendition, and mass murder.

Thereby setting the tone from a “leadership” role that people are not responsible for their actions.

Then as the Banksters stole billions of dollars from the system, Bush and Obama held NO ONE responsible for their actions. In fact, they gave the thieves more money thereby establishing from the “leadership” role that it is alright to swindle, rob and steal.

We have the MIND-SET of the Monster created from the point of view that NO ONE is responsible for their actions and then the Monster was set loose.

The result is simple:

NO ONE is responsible for their actions has become the principle and the reality of the society we call America!

LEADERSHIP IS SETTING BY EXAMPLE …………

However Bush and Obama set by example the WRONG lessons!

And the new crop of “leaders” are simply pathetic! (which may be a step up)

Tubularsock heading slant

It is obvious that Tubularsock covers topics from A to Z so sure he can focus on BEES”?

Tubularsock can spot a honey of a story from afar and realizes that there are the hives and the hives-not.

In this case it appears that the General-Bees and the Drone-Bees are on the same Plan Bee!   

And both being Killer-Bees, Tubularsock deducted that if their plan was accomplished the world may not bee much different.

Hence, Tubularsock took his trusty little camera and went to document this pending event because without documentation citizens only believe what they are beeing told by the messed-media-government-stream (MMGS).

BUT …….. if the citizen is shown documentation ad nauseum  then the citizen will believe exactly what the government wants them to believe anyway because FACTS just complicate thinking! (As 9/11 demonstrates so clearly.)

You see, the Killer Bees have teamed up against the Washington power grid to help stop Washington from taking over the world.

Yes! Tubularsock has pictures. Why else would Tubularsock carry a camera EVERYWHERE?

Tube Plan Bee

And yes PLAN BEE will have collateral-damage but collateral-damage is only people and if the people really cared so much for their families they wouldn’t have put them in harm’s way! 

But look, the Bees care.

The Bees believe in a just cause and in truth the Bees are willing to kill you and your family in order to bring you peace.

The Bees are willing to destroy your town in order to save it!

And as long as the Bees get the honey ……. well, fuck you!

And the real stinger in all of this is ……. “Even Bee Power corrupts and absolute Bee Power corrupts absolutely”.

HEY! BEELIEVE TUBULARSOCK!

You see bees will attack other bees and take over their hive and of course Killer-Bees are very aggressive. They are the Dick Cheney Bees of Beedom.

But bees don’t turn on their own hive like we do.

You see, to our power structure there is little difference from using Killer Bee’s force on Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Nigeria and using Killer Bee’s force on Ferguson, Flint, and Detroit. And as time moves on we’ll see where that is leading ……. and it sure isn’t for the betterment of our society! So Bee careful out there and always remember …….. the louder the buzz the higher the bull shit.

Let's Talk Heading

Sit down. No really! Tubularsock is about to pass on some news that will set you back. Tubularsock was so taken back from this news that it almost overwhelmed him. REALLY!

The United States Justice Department will release its report on the Ferguson Police Department tomorrow March 4, 2015.

The federal investigation was based on reviews of thousands of pages of records, on-site visits and interviews with members of the community.

And you know what they found? Better sit down ……..

Ferguson city officials engage in practices that discriminated against black residents and routinely violate the Constitution and federal law.

The investigation also found evidence of racial bias among police officers and municipal court officials.

NO SHIT DICK TRACY!

Did Tubularsock mention that the Ferguson city officials and police department were overwhelmingly  WHITE. Probably not worth looking into by the Feds. You know, in our post racial society and all!

Now isn’t THAT something. Just how much did that cost the taxpayer?

1. thousands of pages of record

2. on-site visits and interviews

Wow, it appears that the United States Justice Department  seem to have a knack for the obvious and the mundane. Tubularsock figured this shit out Seven minutes after the Ferguson shooting.

Well, really six minutes ….. the seventh minute Tubularsock rested!

And we pay these motherfuckers to do this?

Tube Judge Heading

 

Now Tubularsock was looking back …….. Tubularsock knows, the Obummer only wants Tubularsock to look forward but Tubularsock is so fucking obstinate!

So looking all the way back to the Ferguson Grand Jury and that fucking St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch and the fact that his daddy was shot down while  performing police duties by a black man when Bobby was 12 years old would be enough for any man with integrity to step down from his role as County Prosecutor to avoid even the hint of “conflict of interest” assertions.

But no, Bobby says he is over that and he can rise above the psychological scaring to be fair ………… sure.

Which brings us to Grand Jury witness #40. The FBI interviewed witness #40 and informed McCulloch that her story was-bat-shit-crazy. No not in those words. Only Tubularsock would have used those words if he had been on the FBI team but alas, he was not. But Tubularsock has always wanted to be in the FBI so he could flash his badge as his wallet flapped open like Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.

Yes, perhaps a 12 year obsession of Tubularsock. But he was older than that when the TV show aired but hey, shit sticks with you.

TUBE FBI Badge

Anyway the FBI informed Bob that witness #40 was fucked-up but he allowed her to present her version of the Ferguson drama not once but twice! She was called back because of her “journal” entries.

She states that she saw Brown put down his head and charge Officer Wilson and Wilson shot this unarmed black man in self defense.

The Grand Jury stated that they believed her.

But there was a small detail that wasn’t expressed to the Grand Jury that County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch had been told by the FBI ***BEFORE*** she was called to testify ………..

SHE WAS NOT PRESENT IN FERGUSON AT THE TIME OF THE INCIDENT!

Hell, picky, picky, picky!

Yet witness #40 testimony was accepted as truth and the Grand Jury decreed that there wasn’t enough evidence to indite Wilson! CASE CLOSED! gavel

Oh yeah …….. “the rule of law, not of men” is really only good if the “men” have integrity. And integrity seem to be in short supply in our culture at present.

Now the woman who was Witness #40 is nuts ……. you know “insane” but still on the streets.

So when it came out that she wasn’t going to be prosecuted for lying to a Grand Jury it didn’t surprise Tubularsock. Hey! She’s fucking bat-shit nuts!

What didn’t surprise Tubularsock as well is that no one is prosecuting St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch for stacking the witnesses. Funny how on TV cop shows tampering with a jury is like the fucking crime of the century. But not so much under “real” law.

Little 12 year old Bobby knew that witness #40 was “lying”! The FBI told him so. But he still let a known lier who he knew had not been in Ferguson at the time of the incident  to testify as a witness. He was not deceived HE KNEW!

So Tubularsock figures that the make up of the St. Louis County Grand Jury must have been a group of very fine citizens of different races that are fixated at their 5 year old selves and this has shown how persuasive a fixated 12 year old can be on younger fixations.

The big question for Tubularsock is, why do they call it the Justice Department? Tubularsock is going to have to go to the dictionary and look up JUSTICE. There must be a new definition.

Tube Cloud Heading

 

You know Tubularsock has come to the awareness that it appears ….

the more you dig,

the deeper the hole.

And yes, Tubularsock is sure you have also noticed that as well.

If not, get a shovel and test the theory. OR, trust Tubularsock!

TUBE

So let’s delve into the whole.

Afghanistan  has been producing a poppy crop forEVER.

While the Taliban was in control of Afghanistan the poppy crop was at its lowest production level in Afghanistan’s long history, especially in 2001.

Now some say that this eradication was done to increase the price of heroin. 

The Taliban says that this eradication was done because heroin is incompatible with Islam.

Of course can you trust the evil Taliban?

So we bomb the fuck out of them.

Some say that this bombing was to find bin Laden.

Tubularsock says that this bombing was done to bring the price of drugs down because Laura Bush was a crack ho.

Of course can you trust the evil Tubularsock?

But whatever the reason after the U.S. brought “Freedom and Democracy” to Afghanistan the poppy crop soared.

Some say it’s a sign of corruption inherent in the system of drug economies.

Tubularsock says it shows that the free market system works well as long as American troops protected the poppy fields as an American “national interest”.

Of course can you trust the capitalist Tubularsock?

Some say (the Soviets to be exact) that during the time the Soviets were at war in Afghanistan the CIA was smuggling the poppy crop out of Afghanistan.

The CIA says that it was so busy with smuggling cocaine out of Latin America that their smuggling efforts needed to be subcontracted out to the Russian mafia.

Of course can you trust the CIA?

Some say that the major banks JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Barclays, Lloyds Banking Group, Wachovia all laundered money for the drug cartels. Some may recall the CIA’s favorite shadow bank during the 1980s, the Bank of Credit and Commerce (BCCI).

And those in the know say its a web of protectors–and facilitators–drawn from business, finance, organized crime and the secret world of intelligence.

Of course those in the know seem to know.

So what’s the point?

Well, Tubularsock like Tom Waits takes the Long Way Home.

The fact that once again when it comes to high crime no one ever seems to take the fall but some little drug hustler.

And even worse when a small time “LOOSE-SINGLE-CIGARETTE” hustler is harassed and murdered by NY police, that has got to be the height of hypocrisy within the system of crime prevention.

As Obomber said after the Ferguson police murderer got off, “. . . understand that there’s never an excuse for violence, particularly when there are a lot of people of goodwill out there who are willing to work on these issues.”

So, of course let’s increase our troops in Iraq, bomb Iran and declare war on Russia the ultimate way “our” government of goodwill is willing to work on the issues.

Not only has our ship-of-state lost its rudder and run aground but the Captain is delusional and thinks his SHIT doesn’t stink!

Another sign that the protestors have a DUTY to burn down the town!
