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.

tube-russians-did-it

THE RUSSIANS DID IT?

Now why is it that YOU and Tubularsock, as American Citizens, have to depend on the RUSSIANS to hack the emails of our politicians so WE AMERICANS can read the truth?

THAT SHOULD BE THE REAL CONCERN, DON’T YOU THINK?

Perhaps it is because we are continuing being lied to by Hillary, Trump and the rest of our political establishment.

“I did not have sex with that woman”. Thanks Bill, we know, we know.

“I am not a crook!”. Thanks Dick, we know, we know.

“We KNOW that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction” Thanks George W. we know, we know.

“The NSA DOES NOT spy on Americans”. Thanks James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence. We know, we know!

“The North Vietnamese regime . . . conducted further deliberate attacks against U.S. naval vessels . . .”. Thanks Lyndon, we know, we know.

A “. . . report that’s been pretty well confirmed, that [9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta] did go to Prague and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service . . .”. Thanks Dick Cheney, we know, we know after even the CIA told you this was a false report the day before you said it on TV!

A committee in the House of Representatives in 2004 identified “237 misleading statements about the threat posed by Iraq that were made by President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Secretary Rumsfeld, Secretary Powell, and National Security Advisor Rice. Thanks, we know, we know.

“Osama bin Laden DID IT from a cave!” We know, we know.

And sure steel buildings free fall into their own footprint from office fires BUT ONLY THREE TIMES ON ONE DAY IN ALL OF WORLD HISTORY! We know, we know.

So somehow when Hillary’s and Moderator Wallace’s exchanges in the last debate defended this “intelligence knowledge” that the Russian’s did it ……… we should pause and just wonder where that number 17 that Hillary used came from. Who said so?

Clinton: “We have 17, 17 intelligence agencies, civilian and military who have all concluded that these espionage attacks, these cyber attacks, come from the highest levels of the Kremlin. And they are designed to influence our election. I find that deeply disturbing.”
Trump: You have no idea.
Clinton: I am quoting 17, 17 — do you doubt?
Trump: Our country has no idea.
Clinton: Our military and civilian –
Trump: Yeah, I doubt it, I doubt it.
And then the moderator, “Wallace: “. . .The top national security officials of this country do believe that Russia has been behind these hacks. Even if you don’t know for sure whether they are . . .”

tube-drinkspy

Oh “the who said so” was JAMES CLAPPER and Jeh Johnson, the secretary of Homeland Security with words like:

“The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident . . .”

We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts . . .”

“. . . are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts.”

“the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques . . .”

BUT NO STRAIGHT TALK LIKE HERE IS THE PROOF THAT THE RUSSIAN’S DID IT! THERE IS NO PROOF JUST THOSE FAMOUS  “SIMILAR TACTICS”. Well with those “similar tactics” the NSA itself could have done it!

You know, “scope and sensitivity” just doesn’t cut it for Tubularsock.

Trump for all Tubularsock dislikes the guy is correct …… “Our country has no idea”.

So, Tubularsock just would like to take this opportunity to thank Vlad for his contribution to American Democracy. It is sure a round about way to get any political truth when we have that “free press” all over the place but hey, Thanks Vlad!

Well one thing that Tubularsock has discovered in his Quixote quests, Sancho, is the more it seems to change the more it is just a repeated trick.

So Tubularsock, back in the day ….. 1968, had a friend who was protesting in France and after a major Paris protest he sent Tubularsock these two drawings below.

Recent events in France just reminded Tubularsock of them and so Tubularsock retrieved them from his Archival Library in his top floor corner office in the underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. in Oakland, CA.

PLOTTING THE PLOT

A long time ago on a dark, cold, windy night someone told Tubularsock that there were only seven basic plots in literature. Now Tubularsock has never cared to find out if that is true or not but Tubularsock does know one thing. When it comes to the CIA, Mossad, M15, and DCRI there is only ONE PLOT and it is the one they are cooking up!

Which leads us to the current plot. The one that has caused the world to focus.  But hey, it’s a secret plot so like any basic magic trick …… the hand is quicker than the eye.

And the “ayes” have it but they are wrong! Always watch the hands.

So what is this Charlie Hebdo shoot out at the “OK” corral REALLY all about.

Ok. Lets start with an odd (or not) happening. On Thursday, January 8th The second-largest French public TV channel reported that:

The police commissioner, Helric Fredou , 45, who had been investigating the January 7th Charlie Hebdo attack was found DEAD in his office at about 1 a.m.

Oh well, you know …… standard operating procedure for the French police.

He reportedly met earlier with the family of a victim of the Charlie Hebdo attack and died before completing a report that he had been compiling.

Well you know the press ……. blood and guts sell, right!

Now remember this was reported by the SECOND-LARGEST French public TV channel on the 8th.

But it wasn’t until January 12 that the British press picked up the story. But that’s understandable because they are across the Channel.

And coming last place ………. January 13 ……….. the U.S. press. Well, the Atlantic!

Now that is just part of FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. They can report breaking stories whenever the fuck they please. And just maybe the six corporations that own the free press may not be interested in any details of the Charlie Hebdo attack.

You know, the parade’s over …….. let’s move on to college football. That’s what the public really is interested in, right?

Now Commissioner Fredou, it was reported, had been suffering from depression and experienced burn-out. He used his own gun and committed suicide. And that all may be true, Tubularsock sure doesn’t know Commissioner Fredou personal problems. But Tubularsock does know the ambulance chasing press and when they do something out of character ….. Even the Tabloids, well THAT’S news.

Why no coverage?

Oh sure Tubularsock has a theory ……… removing the focus on this entire event is where it’s at now because if one starts to pay real attention to it, well there are some holes in the story. In fact, the more you look the more like French-Swiss cheese it appears. Now that’s a delicacy!

You know, one could ask …….. who really did this Charlie Hebdo event which is being compared to 9/11. And that is a great comparison because who did 9/11 still hasn’t been determined. In fact, slowly much truth that the government’s narrative of that tragic event is just wrong continues to flow into public view. Yet the game continues.

Oh ……… don’t look, nothing to see here. Keep moving…..

So let Tubularsock define the players for you because it appears, right on schedule, they are attempting to move the goal post.

“IN THE BEGINNING ………..” there were terrorists 2 by 2 or was it 1 by 3. No, 1 by 1. Oh fuck it …….. forget in the beginning!

“IN THE SECOND COMING …….” there was Anwar al-Awlaki and he was droned to death by the Obomber Team in 2011. In September of all months of 2000 … 11. You have got to thank the Washington, D.C. PR firm for being symbolically creative for that kill date.

Anwar al-Awlaki

But how time changes. Back in 2001 Awlaki was the imam (worship leader) of the mosque in Falls Church, Virginia. And at that time he was considered a “moderate-Moslem” you know the kind. The ones in todays world Congress votes to fund with arms to fight in Syria as Western mercenaries and attempt to other-throw the Assad government.

Now Anwar al-Awlaki was an American citizen born in New Mexico and had all what American citizens have …….. a RIGHT to a fair trial for crimes and misdemeanors.

No more. The President can kill anyone he wants. And yes he has the power to do so and there are “legal reasons” he has that power BUT YOU CAN”T SEE THEM because they are secret. And for you to see the rationale for those powers would risk national security. The Supreme Court says so!

Back in 2001 Awlaki was the go-to guy in Washington, D.C. as a media source to answer questions about Islam and the 9/11 attacks. The New York Times  and National Geographic both interviewed him.

He even was invited into the Pentagon to a luncheon in the Secretary’s Office of General Counsel because the Secretary of the Army asked for a presentation from a moderate Muslim as part of an “outreach effort” to ease tensions with Muslim-Americans.

Now this may seem odd but remember white people are not really in tune with those brown Middle Eastern types so we want to “outreach”. It falls into that same shit about “what do black people want” syndrome. So, of course ……. we out-reach!

Hey, it’s the best the main stream whites can do. Because they don’t want to live next door to them!

But one could ask what has Awlaki got to do with the Charlie Hebdo business? Awlaki is DEAD.

Well come to find out back in 2010, Anwar al-Awlaki issued death threats to cartoonists, journalists, and writers from Britain, Sweden, Denmark and the United States for slandering the Prophet Mohammed by drawing cartoons of him and “who are going out of their way to offend Muslims worldwide” as he expressed in Inspire an al-Qaeda magazine.

You see Awlaki “turned radical” around 2006. You know those fucking moderates. You just can’t depend on them. And he went into hiding.

While he was imam at the masque in Falls Church he preached to 3000 members and three of them were 911 hijackers who were al-Qaeda members. “He even spoke with them!” (OMG) Hmmm, 2,997 …… 3.(Do you think a Catholic priest could have criminals attending his mass occasionally?)  The FBI even met with him to discuss his relationship with them.

And if that isn’t enough Awlaki in 2001, presided at the funeral of the mother of Nidal Malik Hasan the Army psychiatrist who later e-mailed him extensively in 2008–09 before the Fort Hood shootings. (must be a link …. he presided at Hasan’s mother’s funeral)!

Hey, Awlaki even associated with Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. Come on you remember. The Nigerian Christmas Day bomber, the underwear bomber! In fact, Awlaki was ALLEGEDLY involved in planning the attack.

You remember. Abdulmutallab was escorted onto the plane in Amsterdam by a man “of authority” without a passport, visa, or luggage. Gosh no red flag there. And he attempted to detonated his ass-bomb near landing time on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253, en route to Detroit, Michigan. This occurred when Israeli intelligence was in charge of the Amsterdam airport security.

And gosh, you do remember Abdulmutallab’s father even informed the U.S. embassy that his son had “been radicalized” before the event.

Funny thing, Awlaki wasn’t in control of the Amsterdam airport or the American Embassy.  And Awlaki is conveniently DEAD but still lives as you will see!

But finally the tie in ………… Said Kouachi, one of the brothers responsible for the Charlie Hedbo attack, according to The Associated Press, had lived with Abdulmutallab, the underwear bomber.

And Abdulmutallab had been, in fact working under cover for Saudi intelligence and the CIA when he was given a new non­metallic type bomb aimed at getting past airport security. That was according to what US and Yemeni officials had told The Associated Press in May 2012.

So.

Now we have Chérif Kouachi and Said Kouachi as the weapons of choice to attack Charlie Hebdo. And we have Amedy Coulibaly the terrorist who was involved in killing an unarmed woman police officer and he was the hostage-taker and gunman in the kosher market where four of the hostages were killed.

Kouachi Bros

But during the market crisis the hostages said that Coulibaly yelled out:

“We are just telling you we are the defenders of the prophet and that I Chérif Kouachi have been sent by Al Qaida of Yemen and that I went over there and that Anwar Al- Awaki financed me.”

Coulibaly&Boumeddiene

The three men were all members of the same Paris jihadist cell.

Now is that a bit odd to you? Notice the quote doesn’t say “I” (Coulibaly) but “I” (Chérif Kouachi) and proceeds to tie in Al Qaida and Anwar Al-Awaki.

And then think about the Kouachi brothers conveniently leaving their ID in the getaway car.

Well Dr. Watson it appears someone is trying to tell us something. And rather emphatically.

But it is useful to know that Chérif Kouachi, Said Kouachi and Amedy Coulibaly had been tracked and monitored because they were involved is terrorist activities. They were arrested many times, yet were allowed to continue training and plotting with fellow Al-Qaeda in Iraq, Yemen, and Syria groups.

Then about 6 months ago, French intelligence decided the suspects’ serial offenses along with their direct contact with Al Qaeda – including the receiving of terrorist training and battlefield experience fighting along side them in Syria – were “low risk” cases and therefore not worthy of their attention.

And if you are interested, six months, coincidentally, is about the typical length of time that security and intelligence “sting operations” take to set up and target terrorists operations. This time frame provides an appropriate time within which an event like these attacks could have been planned, funded, and eventually carried out.

It does follow a trusted pattern. A blatantly obvious terror cell, known to authorities, “drops out of sight”, and then set loose at an appropriate moment. And then executed making sure that the “terrorists” are executed as well. Mission accomplished.

This pretty much has all the telltale signs of a guided military-intelligence operation.

And the “hit-date” was pre-planned because Coulbaly drove his wife, Hayat Boumeddiene, to Madrid, Spain and stayed with her until January 2nd when he returned to France and she flew on to Istanbul, Turkey stayed for four days then moved to Akçakale,Turkey and then crossed into Syria on January 8th the day of the attack. Her movements were watched by MIT (Turkey’s intelligence agency) using cellphone tracking.

Well what does all this mean? Why was this attack carried out? Who wins?

Tubularsock figures first, who needs to be scared into line? AND WHY?

The short list for the possible rationale for this attack is as follows:

1. The U.S. government executed the attack to punish France for its independent foreign policy, citing its vote at the United Nations to recognize Palestine as a state.

2.Both France and Germany are baulking over the economic hit they are taking over the Russian sanctions. And talking about ending them. This attack could have been done to refocus their commitment to the American cause.

3.NATO needs public support of its ISIS war and it’s Syrian destruction. The attack could help to enrage the publics of Europe into a stronger fear based hatred of Moslems.

4.France is being targeted by Israel since its lower house last month voted to recognize Palestine, which allowed the occupied state to become part of the International Criminal Court, with the power to hold the Zionist state responsible for genocide. An enraged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that it would be a “grave mistake” if the French parliament recognized Palestinian statehood.

5.The President of Turkey has suggested French security forces are to blame for the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris, since the culprits had recently served prison sentences.

Doesn’t their intelligence organization track those who leave prison?

“French citizens carry out such a massacre, and Muslims pay the price,” President Erdogan said.

In any chess match you may have to sacrifice a few pawns in order to check-mate the King. Pawns are expendable to a point.

tube chess position

Zbigniew Brzezinski, in his 1998 book The Grand Chessboard states that, “Without sustained and directed American involvement, before long the forces of global disorder could come to dominate the world scene. And the possibility of such a fragmentation is inherent in the geopolitical tensions not only of today’s Eurasia but of the world more generally  . . . that puts a premium on maneuver and manipulation in order to prevent the emergence of a hostile coalition that could eventually seek to challenge America’s primacy.”

Whatever the case whenever these types of terrorist activities take place it is safe to say that somewhere in the line of command you’ll find the CIA and Mossad …… hey, that’s what they do.

Remember, it was the CIA  that  assisted in creating al-Qaeda.
