YOU DON’T KNOW NOTHIN’: NEWS

 

Tubularsock figures that if ANYONE ever stopped and looked at ANY “news” story they would very quickly realize that the only truth they could glean from a “news” story is that it is the STORY part that is the only truth.

And because it is a STORY it could be a lie!

And these STORIES that are spread by what is known as NEWS agencies are not really news but biased stories that are then spread around the world as something that happened (maybe).

Add that to the famous New York Times banner still on the masthead today, “All the news that’s fit to print” and the ONLY question is WHO DECIDES?

And it doesn’t take much effort to discover that most all “news” is distributed to all of us by only THREE (count them …. 3) Global News Agencies.

THAT IS FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD!

The Associated Press (U.S.), the Agence-Presse (FRANCE), and Reuters (Great Britain).

And what constitutes a Global News Agency is that they have offices in most countries of the world and cover all areas of information.

There are many news agencies that provide information but most are more locally centered to a country or area.

So it is up to the “Big-Three” to filter news to the entire world.

All three also have as their core principles, to avoid overt partiality and avoid making judgments and to steer clear of doubt and ambiguity. (good luck with that!) And come now,YOU have got to be wiser than to believe THAT!

So exactly why don’t you know everything or for that matter anything?

Well the first tier is where the fundamental manipulation begins and that is based on whether an event is chosen as news, “of interest”. There are a “million stories in the city, and this is just one of them” as the old Dragnet Police Show used as their tag line.

So which “STORY” gets reported? AND WHY?

Now the ownership of the above agencies are riddled with layers of ownership and corporate/governmental interests and influence. What looks like a straight shot is really more of a quagmire of family, social, governmental, corporate, and latent colonial interests and prejudice.

So here at the fundamental news collection agencies omission due to interest, “lack of space” and “built in bias” is the first step in whether YOU will even get a chance to hear what has happened.

Of course, there is also “Will It Sell” and deliberate distortion to promote or destroy an idea, fantasy, or political position.

And then there is the use of these global news agencies by governments, military and intelligence services to spread their messages worldwide which in truth is directive propaganda discussed like “news”.

And to top all of this is the reality of TRANSLATION. Not only translations through several languages before you even see the story in your newspaper or news outlet but also basic cultural translation which may come through as a lack of understanding between the cultural view of the reporter and of that that is being reported.

So by the time the “news” gets to you what REALLY happened is hijacked and what its significance happens to be has been manipulated.

And it ends up that we don’t know much of anything about world events but the real strange thing is we argue with each other and get all pushed out of shape over our differences of opinion and “facts”.

Yet in reality, we all have been fed bull shit and we each defend it like it is real!

The BIG THREE filters the “news” to a multitude of “news” outlets. There are many of them in every country that are fed these STORIES.

Fox News, CBS News, WSJ, NYT, WP, ABC News, NPR, CNN News to just to name a very few.

And from this cluster of news outlets the News STORIES go through a new series of influence depending on the point of view of the corporation or family that owns them.

And when Fox News scream from on high: “FAIR & BALANCED” the jokes on you.

But NONE of these outlets are fair or balanced they all just slant the STORIES to the mind set that follows any particular “NEWS OUTLET”.

So in truth ……… get real!

Do you REALLY think you know what is going on in Venezuela right now?

 

Syria, Iran, Russia?

Well just about the same amount you were TOLD about Iraq, or Cuba, or Vietnam!

Bottom line YOU DON’T KNOW NOTHIN’ !

AND THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT ………… DECEPTION AND CONTROL!

And to get into a political argument based on what you picked up from ANY news source is like pissing into the wind.

Fun if you don’t mind being wet!

All you really have to understand is that THOSE WHO CONTROL THE NARRATIVE CONTROL THE “TRUTH” OF PERCEPTION ……… EVEN WHEN IT’S ALL A LIE!

HATE SPEECH: A LESSON

 

Tubularsock posted a video called PAST IS PRESENT on You Tube that some of you early birds were able to view before You Tube removed the video.

 

Well this was a first for Tubularsock which has been posting videos on You Tube since 2006.

So Tubularsock was reported for HATE SPEECH ……… so Tubularsock sent in an explanation to the You Tube censors and explained:

 

“To You Tube to reinstate PAST AS PRESENT

The purpose of this video is NOT to promote “hate speech” but rather to highlight the historical tactic of hate speech in the political context to show the dangerous repeat of “group think”.

It is history repeating itself and an attempt to alert people to the dangers of such tactics.

Thanks.”

And as Tubularsock expected writing an anonymous group the response was:

 

Well, really no surprise there so Tubularsock went back to the drawing board and produced HATE SPEECH: A LESSON.

 

Tubularsock will be interested in what You Tube’s response will be this time. In truth, the new video is far superior to the other one and Tubularsock would recommend seeing it right away just in case You Tube misses the point of the video again. This time Tubularsock has made it VERY CLEAR!

2020 THE NO VOTE

According to the United States Election Project, nearly half of eligible voters (46.9 percent of approximately 231,556,622 eligible voters) did not vote in the 2016 election, Nov 10, 2016.

Think on this ………. why?

You see the corporate power structure, you know, the big banks, the military industrial security complex, the fossil fuel industries select the establishment candidates by simply buying them. Very cost effective for them due to the huge returns they receive per money spent.

From there these purchased candidates are selected by the different parties at their conventions mostly funded by these same corporate conglomerates and with the wave of all that Red-White-and Blue are anointed by their parties to RUN FOR PRESIDENT.

And these pre-selected candidates go forth and “battle” for the position by flying around the nation attending rallies paid for by “their supporters” and proclaim just how much they will change about EVERYTHING!

At the same time the owned corporate media, owned by the same conglomerates, pitch their candidate under the guise of the “FREE PRESS” and the charade goes on.

Now in the 2016 election:

Hillary Clinton won 65,845,063 votes.

And Donald Trump won 62,980,160 votes.

Gary Johnson (Libertarian) won 4,488,931votes.

And Jill Stein (Green) won 1,457,050 votes.

Think on this ………….. why?

96,785,418 votes by eligible voters voted for NOBODY ………….

So if the world lived in a logical fashion NOBODY won the 2016 election by 30,940,355 votes! A fucking landslide!

Just how clear does it have to get? It was NOBODY who won by popular vote!

You see NOT VOTING is VOTING NOT!

So when people say that bogus talking point, “if you didn’t vote, you have no right to complain” that is pure BULLSHIT!

You did vote ……… you voted NO!

BUT >>>>>>>> just in case YOU voted WRONG, the Founding Father’s created the Electoral College.

An invention that was created back in colonial times to be sure that the popular vote could be ADJUSTED so as to keep the population from getting REAL control of the vote. You know, YOU CAN’T TRUST THE PEOPLE. A Founding Father principle.

And the irony here from colonial literature as an argument for the Electoral College was, the founding fathers “. . . were afraid of direct election to the Presidency. They feared a tyrant could manipulate public opinion and come to power.  NOW HOW FUNNY IS THAT!

Think on this ……….. why?

Well the answer TO THE OVERALL WHY is really simple …. THERE WAS NO ONE TO VOTE FOR! That is why!

Now think of this this way. Say there are two brands of crackers on the supermarket shelf and both brands are stale ……. which one would you buy to eat?

WELL THAT’S WHAT WE’RE OFFERED ……….. STALE WHITE CRACKERS!

And don’t forget that we are all equal in America so when they offered us a Black Cracker he was just as stale because he had been taught the white cracker jig!

YES’M MASSA!

And even the gender card was played in 2016 but still a white stale cracker but with breasts!

So as 2020 approaches you’ll see the circus and you’ll see the clowns.

And as of this moment the Republican’ts will stick with the Orange BozoBoy and the Democraps have Dead-Man-Walking-Biden as their savior bringing MORALS back to our nation which NEVER EVER had them in the first place!

The only question Tubularsock has with this choice ………. Just how many NO votes will be cast this time around?

 

 

 

 

PRESSTITUTES PERSONIFIED!

Once again, American Journalism is not only lacking but just doesn’t exist …. if it ever did really, to tell the truth.

We can all recall the famous dictum, “You furnish the pictures and I’ll furnish the war” spouted by William Randolph Hearst.

You see, Hearst’s reporter, the famed illustrator Frederic Remington wanted to come home from Cuba in 1897 because nothing was happening …. so he sent a cable to Hearst stating, “Everything quiet.  There is no trouble here.  There will be no war.  Wish to return.”

And Hearst’s response was the above pictures-war statement.

And if you look at this briefly it really provided a template for “GOING TO WAR” ever since. Seriously! Every war since, the precursor, always and still is false, sensational news that prepares the public for war! Oh, a well placed, dead mutilated kid, is a must!

Perfect, really!

You see, Hearst grasped onto the Cuban revolt against Spain in 1895 and saw it as a way to increase his New York Journal readership and pull readers from his rival the New York World.

Hearst’s tactic was to run increasingly sensational stories. TRUE OR NOT! And he went with stories of violence, sex, catastrophe, and mayhem which later became characterized by the term “yellow journalism”.

And quickly to put this historical adventurism of Hearst in context to our current Syrian Chimera, Hearst was able to actually corral the public into believing that the sinking of the USS Maine (which, by the way, blew up from unknown causes, maybe a coal fire) was blamed on Spanish treachery by the New York Journal. Within three months, the United States was at war with Spain in what became known as the Spanish-American War.

And “Remember the Maine, to Hell with Spain!” became the American public’s sentiment promoted by Hearst’s paper vigorously publishing stories that helped create and foster those feelings.

See the parallel? DAH!

The FACT that “yellow journalism” is the major type of journalism left today goes a long way in explaining why the general public is just so plain trusting and stupid.

True, it may not be the only reason for this stupidity but it definitely promotes it!

PRICELESS – SYRIA!

Tubularsock was discussing Syria was a group of “fellow travelers” while sitting in Tubularsock’s top floor corner office of the underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA last evening. And yes the Wild Turkey flowed amidst some of Afghan’s finest, piped in sort-of-speak.

And Tubularsock was expressing his desire to interview one of those TV news readers playing journalist and ask them point blank if they “really believe” what they have been paid to report.

But alas, Tubularsock hasn’t access to such an individual. Oh well.

HOWEVER, it has been said that “the Universe provides” one only has to ask.

Yeah, right!

Well, by golly with a hat tip to 1EarthUnited  https://1earthunite.wordpress.com/2017/04/09/ex-uk-ambassador-to-syria-questions-chemical-attack-it-doesnt-make-sense-assad-is-not-mad/who lead Tubularsock to this video and a big thanks to the Universe, Tubularsock’s question was answered and it is priceless!

Watch her eyes when the Republican Congressman refused to go along with the established narrative.

And even better when she attempts to align the Congressman with RUSSIA AND ASSAD when he refused to buckle.

And then her closing tone …………

THANK YOU, THANK YOU ………. TUBULARSOCK’S QUESTION IS ANSWERED!

(ok, Tubularsock already knew the answer anyway and so did YOU!)

A “free press”?

Sure, as long as you follow the established narrative.

It is a perfect example of RUBBER-STAMP-JOURNALISM!

GIVE TUBULARSOCK THE BLOTTER!

THE DEEP SHIT!

Now the CIA has reported “someone in the CIA happens to believe that just maybe for certain that the DEEP STATE has hired an agent to orchestrate and develop a top secret project known, by ONLY real insiders, as ORANGE BLOSUM MATRIX.” (this is science!)

Now Tubularsock has word from the NY Times that they know almost for sure, kind of, that their CIA contact has substantiated that the Russians may be aware of this top secret project and that Putin HIMSELF may be at his desk RIGHT NOW hacking into Twitter for the truth!

The Washington Post, a subsidiary of the CIA, has gone on to say that all the facts if they had any would be correct! Not to be undone by the NY Times, The Post has made up their own fake news by paraphrasing a known CIA custodian who has categorically stated that he’ll be “cleaning this up!”. Which is all the news necessary to know the Russians did something nefarious.

So it is up to Tubularsock, “. . . first hand coverage, second hand news.” to come to the rescue of real Truth with a capital T!

Now Tubularsock can not substantiate this top secret, “for your eyes only” actual unaltered photo that many feel has a resemblance to Tubularsock himself. Tubularsock has gone on record at 331/3 and stated that he does have a new part time job.

That being said it is best not to speak of the matter. And this unaltered photo will self destruct in three seconds.

Or as that CIA custodian is often quoted, “You’re in deep shit if you speak deep state”.
But for deep dish pizza call John Podesta.

TUBEPAPERS headingIF IT’S NOT FAKE, IS IT REAL?

You know something? Well, not to be rude, but just how would YOU know?

The recent “news” event is the amazing awareness that SOME NEWS ISN’T REAL!

Bet that caught you by total surprise, now didn’t it?

Tubularsock has now read at least seven different articles about this “FAKE NEWS” and almost that number again on the opinions about “FAKE NEWS”.

That is a hell of a lot of time given up from REAL NEWS which seems to be just the definition of news one agrees with as opposed to news THAT THE RUSSIANS ARE CREATING!

Now the only vision that comes to Tubularsock is a little short, balding, runt of a man, ahhh let’s call him say ….. puutan. This little guy is sitting at a computer typing out evil messages and converting them into NEWS to be printed by a network of evil spewing fake news cells throughout the entire globe …… ALL TOP SECRET but with only one supreme message ……. to lie to the proletariat.

And then of course a similar message is being produced by a hair impaired orange man, ahhh let’s call him say …. trummton. This small handed man is sitting high in a tower in a major metropolitan location with his cell phone tuned in to the entire world via Twitter. And he too is lying to the proletariat.

So the only REAL question is ………..

Can Tubularsock produce enough REAL TRUE NEWS to act as a counter force against this extreme evil? Sure Tubularsock can. Tubularsock has been making up news for almost sixteen years as Tubularsock, “. . . first hand coverage, second hand news.” And even the sky isn’t the limit ……. Tubularsock is talking COSMIC here!

tube-no-secrets

The irony is news-producers like the New York Times and the Washington Post have the gall to even join in the conversation. Of course with some of their news staff being paid by the CIA to promote “REAL NEWS” they do know the potential of “FAKE NEWS” being a real commodity. Experience is the best teacher Tubularsock supposes.

And for fun, just where does Voice Of America fit into all of this? Or even fucking NPR!

Could it be that IT’S ALL FAKE?

Think about it ……. your parents told you that a fat man with a bag of toys came to your house every Christmas to represent the birth of Christ who was born by VIRGIN birth and you believed THAT! And that lie was told to you by your very own parents.

So THE GOVERNMENT wouldn’t create lies and make up stories?

“You bet your sweet bippy” they would as Rowan & Martin used to say.
