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.

 

Just what is it about this constant “forever war” syndrome that we find ourselves in as a country?

Are YOU really that afraid of OTHER?

And just what is it that we don’t understand about people in another country risking their lives to protect their country from aggression?

Wouldn’t YOU protect our country from aggression from a foreign country if they were attacking us?

So just who is this fabled AGGRESSOR?

Well, that’s simple ………… THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. None other!

Now recently we have gone through two Presidential election cycles where the WAR ISSUE was a major factor. And in both cases the winners were Obummer and Orange Tweet both of whom indicated that they wanted to alter the country’s direction away from “foreign wars”.

Oh sure, the American public bought it …….. they always do.

Historically you’ll find that the American public has ALWAYS been against going to war. In fact, in most cases you’ll find that it is true of most populations world wide.

So why is there so much war?


In the first three months of 2017 U.S.-led bombing reached 10,918 bombs and missiles dropped on Syria alone. A country that never, ever posed a threat to the United States.

After 16 years we are still fighting in Afghanistan. A country that never, ever posed a threat to the United States.

We have totally destroyed Iraq but are still fighting there. Another country that never, ever posed a threat to the United States.

Have you noticed a trend here?

Let’s, for the fun of it, jump back to Vietnam for a second. The number of people we killed in Vietnam and the numbers of American that were stupid enough to go to “protect American interests” and die in a complete an utter failure is just shameful.
The arch enemy that was Vietnam “won” that war and remained “communist” and THEN in 2016:  “HANOI — The Obama administration announced Monday that the United States would fully lift a longstanding U.S. embargo on lethal arms sales to Vietnam . . .” (Washington Post 5/23/16)

So all it took was an arms deal to be friends? Think on this. All those people dead and now we are selling arms to Vietnam that will kill more people?

OMG ——The Russians! We have to protect ourselves from those aggressive Russians so we threaten them with economic sanctions, nuclear first strike, we place missiles in Europe pointed at them, we build up American military forces at their boarders AND WE CALL THEM AGGRESSIVE?

Yet, the U.S. makes exceptions to sanctions against Russia by lifting bans on Russia’s sales to us of Russia’s RD-180 rocket engines. “It is worth mentioning that Russia’s RD-180 rocket engines, possessing unparalleled performance US firms have yet to match, will be used to launch payloads into Earth orbit for the US Department of Defense.” (Activist Post 1/7/16)

And, “The U.S. Treasury Department on Thursday eased economic sanctions on Russia, allowing some cyber-security transactions with the Russian Federal Security Service . . .” (USATODAY Feb. 2, 2017)

So the U.S. can agree to trade contracts and cooperation with Russia, BUT WE CAN’T AGREE ON PEACE WITH EACH OTHER?

And what do we agree with the Russians on?

Rockets??? So, where is all this “fear” we are supposed to believe in that Russia is so dangerous?

Cyber-security transactions??? After all that fear of Russians hacking the last election?

 

 

And just check out American oil interests in partnership with Russian firms!

But hell, that’s not all!

Look into JUST the Trump Family contractual agreements with CHINA alone. It will make even your eyes become slanted!

Finally, Tubularsock will save your reading time and just bottom line this for you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OVER THE TRUMPAZOO EDGE?

 

 

 

 

SAVE THE SYRIAN CHILDREN!

For Fuck Sake, Tubularsock left the front door open in his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA (see Bunker Tour) and all the sarin gas news drifted in.

So really, without Tubularsock having to go searching for WHAT HAPPENED in Syria the information fell right on Tubularsock’s top floor corner office underground bunker desk!

Which only goes to show you that the ancient sage’s comment, “if you stand in the same place long enough the truth will come to YOU!” is so true.

So lets begin:

First the Russians have reported that there is a chance that an arms warehouse may have been bombed by the Syrian Air Force and exposed chemicals that the “rebel” forces use to make bombs.

Now before your doubting mind takes off remember that it was the Russians that got the Assad Government to destroy their chemical weapons back in 2013 and Syria has been monitored by the U.N. ever since.

So the Assad Government doesn’t possess chemical weapons.

BUT the rebel terrorists (our guys) do have stock piles of chemicals to make chemical weapons that WE (GOOD OL’ AMERICA) sold to them. AND the CIA also trained these mercenaries on how to handle and use them.

The chemicals came by way of Turkey (our ally) and according to Seymour Hersh, it was Killary that approved sending Libya’s sarin gas to the Syrian Rebels! And that is in part what the entire Benghazi mess was all about. Stevens, the ambassador that got himself killed, was a gun runner for the U.S. and the American Embassy was a CIA front.

And when you get down into all this, Killery approved a plan to use the sarin gas and blame Assad as a pretext for the West going in and bombing the fuck out of Syria to SAVE THE CHILDREN!

Truly, Tubularsock couldn’t make this shit up if he wanted to!

So with that information, just why did Trump bomb Syria?

And more than you’d like to think, hand size has a lot to do with it!

And also before we bombed Syria the U.S. warned the Russians that we were bombing the airfield so as not to create an “incident” with the Russians. Of course, the Russians warned the Syrian forces and all is good!

Interesting that a reconnaissance photo that Tubularsock was viewing from the Tubularsock Spy O’Camera shows the bombed out base BUT TWO THING are clear.

ONE: There are no airplanes on the field.

And TWO: The buildings were bombed BUT the air field is fully operational.

So, roll in a couple portable trailers and the air base is functional again.

And THAT, cost the American taxpayer 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles ……. $1.59 million (2014 price) each, for a total of $93,810,000.00 for the missiles ONLY. Care to add up the rest like the ships at sea and the support teams and the cost of the dinner at Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s private gulf club, which between bites of New York steak Trump called for the bombing escapade.

Pretty cheap if you ask Tubularsock! And you can see that the cost to the American taxpayer of $60 million on Mar-a-Lago trips for Trump in just his first year in office is really a savings in comparison.

But we can’t, as a nation, spare a dime for preschool education from the free loading public!

Hey, it all has to go to SAVE THE SYRIAN CHILDREN!

QUAGMIREocracy

You may not have a job, or a house, or health care, or pre-school care, or enough to eat, or any care if you are old because those things are NOT ENTITLEMENTS!

Those things are all examples of YOU sucking off the system!

But there is one thing that is always maintained in this great democratic nation of ours and that is a total-complete-ironclad-guaranteed-over-the-top Foreign Policy of,

Seriously, don’t think for a moment that the United States Military Industrial Complex can not maintain a continued state of QUAGMIRE!

THAT is what they do best. And they have proved it!

Korea

Vietnam

Afghanistan

Iraq

Libra

Syria

And we can all hope with Trump that we can get deeper involved in Syria and Korea which for all practical purposes will have us facing off Russia and China to boot!

Ahh, that American Military just can’t seem to win ANYTHING except body-bags coming home!

Now just why is that?

Well, Tubularsock figured out as a young boy with his friends while playing “WAR” that the enemy was WE!

You see, the boys in the neighborhood would divide up in teams and we would figure out who was going to be the “GOOD GUYS, AMERICA” and the “BAD GUYS, GERMANY AND/OR JAPAN.

Now all this was formulated by the movies of the day and you all know how WAR PROPAGANDA works being as true today as it was in the 1950’s.

But for Tubularsock playing “WAR” was enlightenment because Tubularsock discovered that the “driving force” of the activity was to WIN! There was no good or bad! And most importantly as a “soldier” you were of no importance on either side except to win or die.

It was at that point Tubularsock made up his mind that war was dumb and that he would NEVER join a military.

But to seal that deal Tubularsock did join the Cub Scouts because you got to hang out with your friends and do “neat” things but it didn’t last long and as they started to “recruit” our “den” to join the Boy Scouts Tubularsock had seen enough movies to know about the HJ in Germany and the Great Japan Sincerity Association in Japan. (Remember those news of the world shorts that movie theaters ran before the main features? Tubularsock paid attention!)

Both, in Tubularsock’s mind, were just different renditions of the Boy Scouts. And thus pro-nationalist organizations which prepared youth for war!

So at the ripe old age of 10 Tubularsock decided never to join a group, a military or a war! THE DIE WAS CAST!

 

 

 

 

MATING RITUALS & NORTH KOREA

Tubularsock has been studying mating dance rituals to develop Tubularsock’s NEW THEORY ON AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY.

For one reason it is just a “click-bate” technique to trick people into reading about American “relations” with North Korea. Yes, there is a lot of fucking around!

Have you ever wonder why North Korea ALWAYS seems to want to provoke it’s neighbors by sending off missiles into the, ahhh ocean?

Now at first it may seem odd Tubularsock admits. But it really isn’t when you look at the REGULAR SCHEDULED EVENT. It’s springtime again.

Every spring North Korea’s neighbors (South Korea and Japan) along with our very own antagonist, the United States join together to play WAR GAMES off the coast of North Korea ……… Every fucking spring!

And when your neighbors tend to run their bombers and their battleships and their missile launchers up and down your coast with a “play-like” attack scenario, well it just may APPEAR aggressive. Don’t you think?

But somehow ALL the news outlets lead with stories like NORTH KOREA THREATEN NEIGHBORS WITH RENEWED MISSILE LAUNCH. Well, no shit Dick Tracy!

Or better yet, NBC banners, “North Korea Threatens U.S. With Nuclear Strike Over War Games!”

And of course Arms Sales To The Region increase and so does the rhetoric of just how “CRAZY” Kim Jong Un happens to be to “threaten” his neighbors. And it is left that HE’S the “crazy-one”!

YAWN ……………..

A different side of the same coin is all that American military buildup along the boarder between Poland and Russia and then promoting the idea that Russia is so aggressive!

SAY WHAT?

And IRAN

And SYRIA

AND THE BEAT GOES ON.

The United States has 735 (2005) known military bases around the globe but this number fluctuates a great deal. The number changes by the U.S. military changing the definition of what constitutes a “military base”. And the presence of “military personal” has different definitions at different times such as using “Special Operations” and other forces.

Those special categories are almost certainly operating from undisclosed locations which the size is unknown.

And the “drone operations” have a variety of “bases” some unknown.

So it is a numbers game but there is no question that the U.S. has far more military bases outside its boarders than any other country in the world by a factor of 33 and a third!

One just might interpret that as a bit “aggressive” and the end result is a lot of animosity toward the U.S. even from it’s “allies”.

It is an infrastructure for war but our propaganda is such that we are a “peace loving nation” with the caveat that you “believe it or we’ll kill you”!

It really should be obvious by even the brain dead that all this shit is made up! It only exists if the United States goes out and “kicks the dog” so to speak.

And in order to insure Arm Sales we’ll poke anybody!

Oh, and you thought we were doing it to protect ourselves and bring democracy to the peoples of the world.

SURE YOU DID!

PLAIN LUNACY: THE WASTED LIFE OF RYAN OWENS.

Plain lunacy is distinguished from complex lunacy by the fact that one does not need a protractor to figure it out. Remember protractors? Tubularsock has three. One plastic, one metal, and one wood. The wooden one is by far the best to keep Tubularsock “grounded” while working with complex lunacy. But fear not. We aren’t going there today.

Plain lunacy is recognized by a commodity known as “common sense” which in today’s world is in very short supply. And due to that let Tubularsock give you an example.

It is “common sense” that if you stand in quick sand you sink. And yet mankind has conducted wars between one another from the beginning of time sinking deeper and deeper and yet finding the only solution is to conduct another one and another one and another one, ad nauseam.

The thing about “common sense” is it is organic by nature and that may be why it is in such short supply while living within the GMO corporate-industrial-military-security-psyop-complex. Matrix for short!

Now none of this is even new to any of you. Nor to Tubularsock. But it all came crashing back like a nightmarish dream during Orange-Tweet’s “presidential?” speech to Congress.

Much of the PRESS praised Orange-Tweet for SOUNDING so Presidential. Which only means that Orange-Tweet read his speech from a teleprompter and that the speech was written by somebody else with the knowledge of the key and appropriate PLATITUDINAL-BULL-SHIT that is uttered by every other President that has given speeches to the nation.

And a complete and utter moron could give you a synopsis of all that was ludicrous about that speech but Tubularsock will just provide only ONE point that is ALWAYS one of the best tricks out of a BS-magic show.

Parading out the grieving widow! THE HEIGHT OF BULL SHIT MAGNIFICO!

At this point let Tubularsock just say that this entire “show” was really at the expense of Carryn Owens, the bereaving widow who had just lost her husband. For her, the intensity of pain was palpable and very sad.

owenstrump

However it appears in this photo that the VERY BRAVE GENERALS were more “shocked” by her behavior of showing emotion than having any emotion of loss themselves. They’ll go home to their wives and instruct their drivers what time to pick them up in the morning to return to the Pentagon to plan more death and destruction based on existential fear! Ass holes all!

 

generals

The use by Orange Tweet and the Generals of an intense display of the TRUTH OF WAR they, as always, attempt to give us all that total crap about just how BRAVE, COURAGEOUS, SELFLESS, HEROIC WARRIOR dead Owens was and added to that the embarrassing shit about “. . . battling against terrorism and securing our nation.”

WELL NO! Thirty-six year-old Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens, was mislead. Unfortunately Owens believed that he was serving and protecting his country. As delusional unfortunately that happens to be in this case. In most in truth!

ryan-owens

Tubularsock wonders if Owens EVER even thought what the fuck was he protecting us from while shooting up  Yemen?

No! Owens, according to The Chicago Times, dreamed of becoming a SEAL since he was in high school and enlisted right after high school. The perfect age for stupidity! No thinking there!

Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens was a dupe, just cannon fodder, and now dead Owens has to be pumped up with empty meaningless adulation so as the next stupid high school student will want to throw his life away as well!

THERE IS NO GLORY IN KILLING OTHER PEOPLE ……….. PERIOD. There is absolutely nothing courageous or brave or selfless or heroic. It is just extrajudicial murder and one who carries it out is just a murderer plain and simple.

As so well stated in The Americanization of Emily, a 1964 movie about WW2, Lt. Cmdr. Charles E. Madison (James Garner) says: “We shall never end wars, Mrs. Barham, by blaming it on the ministers and generals, or warmongering imperialists, or all the other banal bogeys. It’s the rest of us who build statues to those generals and name boulevards after those ministers. The rest of us who make heroes of our dead and shrines of our battlefields. We wear our widow’s weeds like nuns, Mrs. Barham, and perpetuate war by exalting its sacrifices.”

Now there is no question that “Ryan” Owens “bought into” the “serving your country crap”. Tubularsock has no argument with the protection of one’s country. The argument comes when it IS OUR COUNTRY that is the aggressor to other countries.

Afghanistan NEVER attacked the United States!

Iraq NEVER attacked the United States!

Libya NEVER attacked the United States!

Vietnam NEVER attacked the United States!

And by far not the last example, Yemen NEVER attacked the United States!

So just exactly WHO was Owens and the pack of Chicken-Shit-Navy-SEALS murderers protecting? Definitely not you or Tubularsock! Or for that matter any American citizen.

Yemen? American military killing people in Yemen? What the fuck?

DO YOU FEEL SAFER? FUCK NO, WE’RE NOT SAFER!

Wonder why?

Well, it is simple really. Let Tubularsock return to the “common sense” of Plain Lunacy.

Never arm lunatics with guns!

You should remember that there was no such thing as al-Qaeda until the U.S. created them to fight the Russians in Afghanistan back under the Reagan and Carter Administrations.

And even to this day the U.S. government keeps pushing that IT’S THE TERRORISTS, IT’S THE TERRORISTS, IT’S THE TERRORISTS but the U.S. government keeps arming them.

Whether it’s Shrub, Step-En-Fetch-It, or Small-Hands-Orange-Tweet each have continued to provide arms and support to the terrorists.

They all keep repeating that battling against terrorism and securing our nation is our goal sooooooooo,

EXACTLY WHERE IS THE COMMON SENSE LOGIC IN CONTINUING ARMING THEM?

Oh, unless there is another agenda that is not being stated to the American public, an agenda that Chief Petty Officer William “Ryan” Owens and so many others have literally “fallen for”. But rest assured SOMEBODY PROFITS!

And speaking about Americans there was another American citizen killed in this raid in Yemen. And that was 8-year-old Nawar (Nora) who was visiting her mother when the raid took place. She was one of the 24 civilians killed by the American “brave” SEAL murderers.

nawar-nora-awlaki

Of course there is always an answer. US Air Force colonel John Thomas said: “Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula has a horrifying history of hiding women and children within militant operating areas and terrorist camps, and continuously shows a callous disregard for innocent lives. That’s what makes cases like these so especially tragic.”

But here is the problem with all that ……… THEY LIVE THERE!

US Air Force colonel John Thomas doesn’t!

It is like all those 100’s of thousands of civilians that guys like US Air Force colonel John Thomas napalmed in Vietnam. Burning them alive! They were all in there with the Vietcong ….. Remember?

THEY LIVED THERE! THAT WAS THEIR HOME!

It is the fucking brain dead like US Air Force colonel John Thomas that attacked them in THEIR COUNTRY!

That is like saying that all the people that died in the Twin Towers on 9/11 were in those buildings because of the horrifying history of capitalists showing callous disregard for innocent lives.

GIVE TUBULARSOCK A BREAK!

But that isn’t the entire story.
Nawar (Nora), was the 8-year-old daughter of Anwar al-Awlaki, a radical Yemeni-American cleric killed in a targeted U.S. drone strike in Yemen in 2011. A strike ordered by Obummer. Anwar al-Awlaki too was an American citizen born in New Mexico.

anwar-al-awlaki

And Obummer has never commented publicly on the targeted drone strike that accidentally killed Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a 16-year-old American boy and the son of al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki in 2011. The teenager, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen who was born in Denver in 1995.

abdulrahman-al-awlaki

So so much for “protecting Americans”!

All this death and destruction was approved over dinner five days after the presidential inauguration by Orange-Tweet and his closest advisers.

Oh don’t worry, Tweet-boy didn’t lose any sleep over it and by using Carryn Owens as a propaganda prop it just showed better on TV! You see the Orange-Tweet could not help but brag that his words “. . . had inspired the hugest, greatest standing ovation ever, so long and loud, it’ll make your head spin. Believe me.”
