LOCK THE CHILDREN UP, NOW!

Lets get something straight ……….. taking children from their parents after crossing the border seeking asylum is against EVERYTHING this country has ever stood for and yet Jeff Sessions, John Kelly and Dumbtrump and those Republican’ts that support them are breaking the LAW OF HUMAN DECENCY. (AGAIN!)

White House chief of staff John Kelly told NPR’s John Burnett earlier this month that “the children will be taken care of — put into foster care or whatever”.

AND YET 1500 children that were taken into custody ARE UNACCOUNTED FOR and nobody knows where they are or where they were sent!

WHAT THE FUCK?

Is this country THAT DYSFUNCTIONAL?

The U.S. is obligated to accept asylum-seekers under U.S. and international law if they can show a “credible fear” of persecution or torture.

There IS NO LAW that “. . . even remotely requires the separation of children (from their parents), and we filed a recent lawsuit arguing, in fact, that the Constitution prohibits this policy.” (According to the ACLU.)

The practice of putting children “. . . into foster care or whatever” was something that was being done when children arrived at our boarders UNACCOMPANIED but was not intended to be used for children who arrived with their parents.

That policy was CREATED by Sessions and OrangeDump NOT the Democraps!

Of course, OrangeDump is out there on his soap box blaming the Democraps but this time it is just not true. Pretty much like all things OrangeDump says. But who even counts anymore?

In an interview with NPR in May, White House chief of staff John Kelly described family separation as a “tough deterrent.” And that is from a guy who lost his own son so you’d think he’d have a better understanding and compassion for the loss of a child. But no, he doesn’t seem to get it no matter how often he visits his son’s grave in Arlington Cemetery.

Hey John, you may want to ask your wife about a loss of a son. Just another “tough deterrent” …… right John?

Like Tubularsock has said before and will repeat ad nauseam, the reason so many Latin Americans are fleeing for protection from their countries is because of the destructive U.S. foreign policies toward Latin America which have been going on for years.

Those policies have lead to the causes of a massive exodus from Latin America and according to government data shows that most of the children traveling alone and families traveling together from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, are fleeing drug cartels, gang violence and domestic abuse. As well as the dictators the U.S. installed while “influencing” their elections.

 

But COMPASSION is not one of Jeff Sessions and Dumps strong suits. Perhaps due to poor potty training in their formative years.

Holding in shit for that many years can cause a continuous flow in pseudo-adulthood.

LOST VALUES — SING ALONG!

Remember that old Pete Seeger folk song,

Where have all the values gone?
Long time passing

Where have all the values gone?
Long time ago

Where have all the values gone?
We have dumped them every one

When will we ever learn?
When will we ever learn?

OR WAS THAT FLOWERS?

Whatever!

Unless you have be living in a cave in Siberia you may have noticed that the values that the United States once upheld (even if they were not perfect) have pretty much been eliminated.

You remember, things like lying, cheating, torture, conflict of interest, caring for others, killing, the rule of law, taking responsibility for your actions, democracy …….. you know stuff like that.

WE HAVE NO LEADERS IN THE UNITED STATES THAT HAVE ANY OF THOSE VALUES. LET ALONE A LEADER TO STAND UP FOR THEM!

Oh sure, before they are elected they spout those values and after they are elected they spout those values but THEY NEVER SPROUT those values once they are in office. NEVER!

And when false values are the watchword of the day we really start to see for ourselves the downfall and breakup of our society.

Because if we, as a society, don’t have strong values to promote and uphold, then we have NOTHING.

If people don’t have honor within them the chances for them to be an honorable person is diminished.

And that is where we stand right now, with “one foot over the line” or was that “one toke”? Sweet Jesus.

Whatever!

So, let Tubularsock run you through an easy one, TORTURE.

THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO EVER USE TORTURE ON ANIMALS OR HUMANS EVER, PERIOD. This has to be a core value because anything less leaves you with no honor of self, period.

And yet the current President of the United States believes that it “works” and has stated that he believes in it.

And now we see that the Congress of the United States believes in torture, as well, thereby they have approved a Torturer to head the CIA, “Bloody Gina”.

And of course whenever Torture is mentioned fucking Dick Cheney is brought out of his lair to expound upon its virtues.

And Cheney, loves the virtues of torture so much that he loves to be beaten by Lynn in their dungeon to bring about sexual arousal. “Beat me, beat me Lynn!”

And just to show you that Tubularsock isn’t some liberal goody-goody, Tubularsock’s fantasy has always been meeting Dick Cheney in some dark alleyway and in one rapid movement slicing his chest cavity open with a rusty Boy Scout knife and reaching in and pulling out his beating bloody stolen heart and throwing it into a pig pen to be consumed! They’ll eat anything!

But hey, won’t happen because Tubularsock has taken an anger management seminar.

AND the fact that the statistical chances of Tubularsock encountering Dick Cheney in a dark alleyway is “ZERO” so there you go …….. math wins out!

Of course, “Bloody Gina” would not say that torture was MORALLY WRONG because she ran a torture site and should be in jail as a war criminal rather than made the head of the CIA!

But the United States has lost that value, morality.

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW!

Another value we have lost is TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ACTIONS. Have you noticed that?

“Bloody Gina” was the chief of staff for Jose Rodriguez, the director of the CIA National Clandestine Service. She was responsible for drafting a cable ordering the shredding of videotapes depicting torture sessions, despite a court order staying their destruction.

That action is against the law but not only did she “follow orders” as any good German SS solider would do BUT THE ONLY ACTION taken by any governmental body for a blatant illegal action was to promote her to CIA Director.

So with that you can throw out the RULE OF LAW as another lost value.

And remember if the RULE OF LAW principle was really practiced then George, Dick, Don, Condo, Killery, Dump, Obummer would ALL be in prison today for war crimes.

However, that value has been tossed aside.

Well, for the ruling class anyway. But don’t you jaywalk! You’ll be in the clinker!

The list goes on and on but the values are lost to our nation and won’t be coming back any time soon. The cracks in the Republic are rapidly expanding and Donald Trump is no more to blame than the American population for sitting by and selling out our principles.

As for Tubularsock, you’ll find him,
“sittin’ on the dock of the Bay, wasting time”

WHATEVER!

PIVOT

Ok, ok ……….

We’re not friends. Step-and-Fetch-It-Obama the out going puppet of the FWRM (fat, white, rich, men) and Tubularsock belong to different clubs.

So when Barack contacted Tubularsock to “take a meeting” with him, well ………

It only meant one thing …… Barack needed a fall guy and Biden couldn’t do it because he may be headed for a post in Killary’s Administration.

tube-obama-not-right

You may not recall but Tubularsock early in Barack’s Administration held the cabinet post of Secretary of the Inferior and was extremely popular.

Don’t recall: News Before It Happens …. Secretary of the Inferior, Missing!

Anyway, the bottom line is that Barack has asked Tubularsock not to bring up the fact that:

Guantanamo is still open for business.

The war in Afghanistan still continues.

The war in Iraq still continues.

The war in Libya still continues.

And Barack has added to that

The war in Syria AND

The war in Yemen AND

Starting in 2014 Barack carried out 674 military missions across Africa. And by
2016, you do the math!

And then add the special ops raids, the drone strikes, the “training missions” and the African Continent is well covered with American killers.

And all this has been accomplished by a Nobel Peace Prize Winner!

WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT THE SWEDES?***

*** Political tactical note: this is called a pivot. A pivot is when one shifts the focus from the point of the discussion to a false narrative. (This was a Tubularsock teaching moment)

Wow! THIS IS IT!

The time has come ………. the end of Guantanamo TODAY.

As you may have heard Obummer is in Cuba.

“‘What we did for 50 years did not serve our interests or the interests of the Cuban people,” Mr. Obama said. “We continue to have serious differences, including on democracy and human rights,” he said, noting that if Cuba made changes on those fronts it would help persuade Congress to lift the embargo.” (NY TIMES 3/21/16)

Now the Americans wanted to have a public question and answer session which as the Times put it “. . . led to a few tense moments.”

Mr. Castro was asked about the existence of political prisoners in Cuba and he indicated that there were none! He then went on to say, “Give me a list of political prisoners and I will release them”.

Damn! Tubularsock dialed Raul right up and gave him the list of the prisoners still locked up in cages at Guantanamo!

They should be free by morning!

Che

And Congress doesn’t have to do anything because Tubularsock’s list will be handled by Raul!

 

See how simple foreign policy is when you let Tubularsock handle it!

TERRORIST “R” US!

Tubularsock is having trouble with the numbers. When Tubularsock adds up all the ISIS, IS, ISIL  fighters and their Toyota pickups and add that number to all of The Free Syrian Army members who don’t even exist and put those numbers with the numbers of The Syrian Revolutionary Front and taking that total and adding in the Islamic Front and the number of members of the al Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front and of course adding in the Kurds and taking that total and adding in the American “boots on the ground”, the Turkish “boots on the ground”, and the Saudi “boots on the ground”, taking the total of the “boots on the ground” number and dividing by two for obvious reasons, Tubularsock has accomplished not only an extreme run-on sentence but a number larger than the population of Syria!

This may be the exact reason why there is such a huge uptick in Syrian refugees going to Europe. There is just not room for regular people to remain in Syria any longer. That and perhaps being bombed and killed everyday.

Now if you take the numbers of Assad’s army and add in the the Russian “boots on the ground” and the Iranian “boots on the ground” and taking the square root of that total and dividing into the massive number of “Freedom Fighters” well ……..

We have a mess. So after four plus years now it has been discussed that Syria may be able to sit in on negotiations of this “conflict” without eliminating their government beforehand as the U.S. had wanted.

Tube pawns burn

But far more important to Tubularsock is, what ever happened to George-The-Lessor’s famous dictum …… “Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.”?

George-The-Lessor never made a distinction between the really “worst of the worst” terrorists (except all the ones he and Cheney tortured in Guantanamo) and the “moderately nice” terrorists. George said TERRORISTS! And if “you” aren’t with “us” then, well . . .  .

But now that the “decider” has been away from the Presidential Desk for almost eight years American Foreign has gone to shit. The Black-guy just hasn’t worked out all that well.

Because?

Well, he supports TERRORISTS and therefore is against us ……….. obviously!

REDACTED LIBRARY: THE OBAMA LEGACY

Now here’s a question for you and Tubularsock really wants you to set aside your cocktail, your hash-pipe, your straw&coke ……. and sure Tubularsock knows, that’s for breakfast ……. and think about ahhhh. . . . .

Let Tubularsock start here.

Why would you build a library for someone who never even finished a book about a goat on 9/11?

Well it already has been done, as you know, for the TORTURE PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH. In Dallas, TX. And speaking of luck it is the 13th Presidential Library administered by the National Archives and Records Administration.  See: https://tubularsock.com/2014/04/09/art-by-any-other-name/  and https://tubularsock.com/2014/04/28/question-bush/

And make sure you catch the George W. Bush Presidential Center’s GIFT STORE

pres gifts

where you can buy gifts like the “Presidential Baseball Bat for $129.98 or maybe you’d prefer the “Presidential Stetson Hat” for $249.98 or could you top “The Presidential Sketchbook at only $49.98?

The one gift so many remember George pushing for as the TORTURE PRESIDENT isn’t even on sale. And that is the Presidential Water-board with directions and detainees.

WATERBOARDING

Now all of this for this sad, worthless, little man, the Shrub. A true sack of shit who should be in jail for war crimes he has committed.

And fucking imbeciles actually visit this place …… a DisneyLand in Texas that is one step below the Texan Chainsaw Massacre!

DADDY CIA BUSH has his Presidential Library just outside of Houston in College Station, TX.

And just to complete the picture Barbara Bush has a Harris County branch library named after her in Springs, TX. There is nothing in the library about her but who gives a shit anyway?

But this was all a quick back story because the question that really needs to be considered is why have a library with all the books and papers so redacted that the pages are just black.

The Obummer Administration is in the process of planning the library for the most NON-Transparent  secretive President in the history of the United States ….. THE DRONE PRESIDENT BARACK H. OBAMA LIBRARY in Chicago, IL.

And here is the trick. In order for a President to have a library a President has to create a FOUNDATION.

So abracadabra ………

OBAMA FOUNDATION LOGO

And what’s it goal for existence except for the reason of taking in tax free money from world-wide corporate sponsors and foreign countries in order to buy influence?

library vision

Well here you go “inspired citizen”:

So it represents a “movement” that kills people from the sky without warning or due process, or even knowledge of who they are or what they’ve done?

So it represents a “movement” that keeps people locked away in Guantanamo Prison-Torture Camp for decades, even people who have been proven that they are guilty of nothing but won’t be released?

So it represents a “movement” that attacks other sovereign nations with no-pretext other than we just don’t like them and lecture them about being a nation of laws?

So it represents a “movement” that allows the banks to rob, swindle, and cheat and be bailed out with the citizens money only to set them up to do it again with no one being held responsible.

So it represents a “movement” that condone torture and inhumane treatment of people without NO ACCOUNTABILITY.

So it represents a “movement” that creates a health system based on insurance and care providers PROFITS rather than health care.

So it represents a “movement” that has set up a system attacking the Bill of Rights and the Constitution and the freedom of the citizen with draconian spy programs and detention without trial possibilities in the name of National Security.

So it represents a “movement” that . . .

Please pass the BULL SHIT. Thank you.

Now as usual everybody and their brother wanted Obummer’s Library in their neighborhood. The University of Chicago was competing with the University of Illinois in Chicago, Columbia University in New York, and the University of Hawaii in Honolulu to host the Obummer Library.

But The University of Chicago won out and with the help of that little sleazeball Mayor Rahm Emanuel (remember Obommer’s former chief of staff) the hurdles that were in the way of building Obummers Library on park land was settled by having the District Park Board vote to change the law that protect public parks to allow Obummer to acquire 20 acres of City park land to build his library.

Sleazeball Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Tubularsock.

Sleazeball Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Tubularsock.

But the Friends of the Parks who said they would challenge the City in court over the City violating the state’s public trust doctrine, which forbids private development on “property recovered from the waters of Lake Michigan.” In other words: landfill. That land under the terms of the trust must be “preserved as a natural resource and open space equally available to Illinois citizens.”

Then State lawmakers changed the state law to specifically permit presidential libraries on park land provided the public still has access. And Governor Bruce Rauner signed it into law against the wishes of the FOTP.

In fact, “the new law was filed around 7 p.m. April 22, and by midday April 23 it had zipped through both houses of the State Legislature and was sent to Gov. Bruce Rauner, who signed it”. (Greg Hinz, Crain’s Chicago Business, 4/25/15)

According to FOTP, House Bill 373 “basically authorizes the City to run a mall up and down the Lake so long as they call it a museum.” (Deanna Isaacs, The Reader, 5/1/15)

But funny thing, the Friends of the Parks president Cassandra Francis abruptly left her job. She had been a big supporter of protecting the Lake Michigan shoreline and parks in general and found herself on the opposite side of the power structure she’d previously been part of and stepped down. All she said was that it was a good time to “move on”.

“Francis insists she left under her own power but, well, sometimes a wise woman doesn’t wait around for the hanging party to arrive.” (Greg Hinz, Crain’s Chicago Business, 4/25/15)

But here is the silver lining, at least for Tubularsock the muralist ……..

Tubularsock is sending his mural idea for the entrance of the new Obummer Presidential Redacted Library.

And Tubularsock has set his heart on winning the entry mural competition ……… if they have one. STAND BACK, IT SAYS IT ALL AMERIKKKA.
