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)

TUBULARSOCK SEES CLEARLY ……..

Amazing Tube heading

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.

GAGA AND BEYOND!

Tubularsock has found that most everything has a basic simple explanation. And then layers are placed upon the simple to attempt either to confuse one from understanding what is going on or to attempt to explain the simple in a complex way so as to create the illusion that those who are attempting to carry out the simple idea look like they know what they are doing.

Either way Tubularsock calls it BULLSHIT STACKING. And it is a major policy practice of the American political establishment.

Tube&Gaga

Don’t think so ……. then you are just stupid! Now how simple is that?

Well if you have been following the Regimented-Free-Press (RFP) you’ll know that Lady Gaga just got engaged on Valentines Day. And yes she got a custom designed heart shaped diamond engagement ring. Is there any other kind? How simple.

AND to top that off YOU TOO can dress like Lady Gaga as shown by this ad following the article about her engagement.

How simple.

Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 6.36.05 PM

Tubularsock believes that there is a difference between general WHITE garments for less and Lady Gaga’s custom made gown. What do think? Tubularsock is not going to rush out and buy one. How simple.

The RFP also made room for a little coverage of the old boring news as well. Not as exciting as heart shaped diamonds and endearing love but just some other stuff the RFP feels they can fill their new cycles with because after all one thing they constantly do well is report without questioning.

Well this in one of those news reports.

If you compared the pressing questions directed to Lady Gaga from the press to the half asleep nodding heads of the Washington Press Corp when Step’n-fetch-it Obomber’s lackey’s and running dogs announced :

Obama drone headline

you would have seen their lack of concern and knowledge that the RFP regularly displays.

Well there is a story here and Tubularsock is going to point out ONLY one simple fact for you to consider. But Tubularsock does have to remind you on how the game works.

Now you may remember when the United States under the Carter and Reagan Administrations decided to arm the mujahideen so they could fight the Soviets in Afghanistan. And of course we sent in American “trainers” to assist in teaching the mujahideen. But that was not all. The U.S.  in addition to overt and covert funding operations by various U.S. governmental agencies there were a large variety of private “aid” agencies and think tanks that formed policies and not only profited from those policies but were also up to their chinny-chin-chins in the drugs­-for-­guns Iran-­Contra networks of that then­ Vice President George-the-prick-Bush and his loyal sidekick Oliver-dumb-fuck-North had undertaken.

This falls under what is known as PROXY WARS. A war where a country has “others” stand in and fight an enemy rather than doing the fighting directly. Like in this case where the U.S. and the Soviet Union can’t fight a war directly because it could escalate into World War III.

So both powers create and fund “others” to alter the area where each wish to control and exploit.

Now the United States is by far the greatest Proxy War creator than any other nation in the world. We have more military bases in the world, we sell more war equipment than any other nation in the world and we overthrow more established governments than any other country in the world.

AND WE ACT LIKE WE WANT PEACE?

That’s what we do. And we do this to control natural resources such as oil but there is far more at stake than just oil.  Natural gas, Tungsten, and the list continues. WE WANT them for us so to keep the Chinese from sucking them up before we do.

Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 6.09.45 PM

                                             

The Chinese are active in Africa  so the United States destabilizes the area so as to make it unstable for nations to control the extraction of these resources. THAT is what Boko Haram in Nigeria is all about and the CIA helped to create this situation to divide and conquer Africa.

That is what al Qaeda is all about. The CIA under Carter and Reagan created al Qaeda and supported Osama bin Laden.

Bin-CIA

The U.S. also funded and supported Saddam Hussein. We provided him with the WMD’s that we later used as the excuse to overthrow him.

When it comes to RIGHT WING brutal dictators in Latin America the U.S. helped to create, fund and trained ALL OF THEM!

The amount of MASS MURDER that the U.S. has created in the world and supported through these “PROXIES” is overwhelming.

And we have continued this type of Foreign Policy to the point that today the BLOW-BACK is hitting the fan.

Now, explain to Tubularsock why Obomer believes that “our” allies today are going to be our allies tomorrow or for that matter next week!

“U.S. officials suggested the drone sales could become a new tool for expanding American influence overseas.” (LA Times)

So now rather than just killing people by drone-murder we are going to sell drones to who? It is the same pattern again?

Oh yeah, “strong and capable international partners”! Oh, Right.

So we just have to sell them to Jordan. We just have to do it. They NEED THEM to “defeat” ISIS! Sure they do. The U.S. has been droning ISIS for almost two years now …… are they defeated? Will Jordan be better at it?

And what happen if ISIS captures the drones? Then what?

And where did ISIS come from ………..? Who helped to train many of them? Arm them?

We are going to now help Jordan drone them? We must, we must!

Even Congress sees the need, “Given our mutual interests, and our strong relationship, it’s absolutely critical that we provide Jordan the support needed to defeat the Islamic State,” Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., wrote to President Obama in a Feb. 5 letter.

Did Tubularsock mention that much of drone manufacturing is centered in Southern California.

So Northrop Grumman Corp., Lockheed Martin Corp., and General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc. just happen to build drones which when  Rep. Duncan Hunter, says “Given our mutual interests . . .” we at least know who he’s talking about!

Israel, Russia and China, manufacture military drones and have fewer compunctions about selling them. But by the U.S, getting into the market we can have more influence over how countries actually use their drones. Like murdering people from the sky is any different with an Israeli drone or an American one.

Now don’t be scared,  U.S. made drone technology will ONLY be sold to “allies” that agree to “end-use monitoring and potential additional security conditions.” Feel better?

The restrictions would limit potential misuse of drones, such as attacks against a country’s own civilian population.

Hey, remember how well that worked with Saddam Hussein when Reagan sold him the gas that was used on the Kurds? Sure, “limit potential misuse”!

AND THIS IS THE POINT!

Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 6.16.01 PM

                         

We have created these enemies over the years to promote “American Interests” meaning “PROFITS FOR THE FEW” and now we will provide military ready drones to “allies” (like Saddam Hussein) and then wonder WHAT WENT WRONG?

Now for years Tubularsock has watched this happen and couldn’t figure out why our questionable leaders continued to race down the same path and get the same result. And they appeared not to notice.

THEN CAME ENLIGHTENMENT!

Tubularsock was coming from thinking “WE” wanted world peace and democracy and dignity of man/woman.

Yeah, Tubularsock knows ……… how foolish.

NO, THE PLAN is exactly what they are doing. The proof’s in the pudding!

Continued war IS the goal. Create an enemy, train them, support them, and turn them onto those we want to control. And then destroy our creations when they become no longer useful.

That’s the game.

And the beautiful thing about it is that all those mothers and fathers out there that don’t have their sons and daughters because they died in the game, hold onto the fantasy that their dead offspring gave their lives to protect America. They are just poor DUMB FUCKS! Their don’t get the game.

single coffin

                     

                             

And then they give them a folded American flag and some metal trinkets and tell them what heroes their dead children were and they FUCKING BUY IT out of grief! Shame on them and their poor sad souls. You have been had. 

It’s a game …….. wake up!

And for you military brain-died who march off thinking you are going to do something noble, you too have been had.

And that is why you fucks are killing yourselves like flies on your return because you finally figured it out. The U.S. doesn’t give a fuck about you.

And how does Tubularsock know? Fucking take a look. THEY ALWAYS can make a profit on military equipment and Congress dumps money into military procurement.

But wake up dumb fucks ……. Congress just can’t seem to find the money to cover you veterans.

WHY? You are not profitable. You are spent. You are used equipment. You have been spent and had. You would have been left like old military equipment on the battlefield if the American government could figure out how to get away with it.

You now are a cost ……… fuck you!

  no way out

                                   

                                       

So the bottom line is that the United States creates its enemies and then spends trillions of dollars to destroy the enemy that has been created thereby creating more enemies  and the cycle continues.

The U.S. doesn’t want it to stop! THERE IS NO PROFIT IN PEACE.

Tube firy heading

 

Tubularsock was sitting in his top floor corner office in his underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA and pondering.

How is it that the United States can keep all the wars going on for years and years and just not run out of enemies. How can we be so good at this and can’t seem to fix our own streets, roads and bridges?

Is THIS what American Exceptionalism is all about? Being able to PREACH caring and peace by running undisciplined about the world kicking and screaming in reality about getting OUR own way? Disregarding ALL peoples in our way so we can get OURS even when what we want doesn’t belong to us.

So let Tubularsock define some terms to get things a bit more clear.

Now Tubularsock knows many of you know this already but as time passes we all forget some things because it just has become the way the United States does things.

The debate about how the U.S. does things is pushed aside by the continued doing of it to the point that it is soon forgotten by so many that there may be a different way to do it.

  1. pre-emptive strike IS AGGRESSION. Clear and simple.
  2. Un-declared war while bombing another country IS WAR.
  3. Torture IS torture no matter what fancy word one comes up with to attempt to cover it up.
  4. Signed treaties and agreements legally need to be followed by ALL. Not just by OTHERS.
  5. The rule of law NOT of men MEANS just that, the rule of LAW not of men.
  6. War criminals must be held accountable even if they are Americans.
  7. Regime change by “assisted” revolt or assassination is WAR.
  8. Iraq had NOTHING to do with 9/11
  9. Afghanistan didn’t either!
  10. An example of a terrorist state IS the United States.
  11. And to bring this home to you personally Tubularsock will remind you what your mother told you, “Just because your good friend is a jackass doesn’t mean you have to copy him!”
  12. al Qaida, ISIS, Neo-Nazis of Ukraine were all created and are supported by the U.S., Israel, and England and have and will continue to create BLOWBACK for years to come.
  13. Drones create more terrorists than they destroy.

And sure the list could go on but Tubularsock figures you got his point with the first example which only goes to show you that redundancy is so redundant.

And because you “got-it” from the first example Tubularsock is going to use the last example as his template for all examples. Now how easy is that?

About a little over two weeks ago the BBC News reported that, “A US drone strike in Yemen . . . killed three suspected al ­Qaeda members suggesting that US policy in the region is continuing as normal”.

Americandrone

Now “. . . continuing as normal” means that the U.S. has been killing people by drones in Yemen since 2002 or for the past thirteen years. And up to this point the U.S. had a Yemenis puppet leader who went along with the U.S. killing but recently that leader was overthrown and the current Yemen government is a Shia-led rebel grouping known as the Houthis.

But the U.S. doesn’t care who is the leader of an independent country, we’ll drone them if we want because it’s “normal”! Makes Tubularsock wonder why somebody has taken all that time to draw all those border lines on all those maps if they really have no meaning. Oh, Tubularsock forgot …… the U.S. border lines are sacred, of course.

And when those supposed Arabs took out the Twin Towers the CROSSING of those U.S. border lines were duly noted, if you recall. It was even considered an attack!

But Tubularsock again is in a middle of a digression. So back to the main point.

Now “ . . . killed three suspected al­ Qaeda members . . . ” means …… well what it means in this case is not true.

You see “suspected” is a funny way to die. The drone operator doesn’t know if the occupants of the car they blew to hell really has REAL al Qaeda members inside.

So they are “suspected” which means that AFTER they are dead, well people on the ground report if they were al Qaeda or just another wedding party.

In fact, the Obama administration considers “all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants,” several administration officials told the New York Times in June 2012, “unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.” And if they weren’t a “combatant” they are just dead with the distinction of being counted differently. You know how important accuracy is to the United States!

Well in this case two of the PEOPLE in the car were al Qaeda but the third PERSON was a thirteen year old boy ………. So who was he?

Mohammed Saleh Duaayman was 13 years old and in the sixth grade.

children here&there

(another digression: you do realize that EVEN if Mohammed had skipped death and got to the United States he still would have NOT been able to go to school with the Obama kids. They go to a private school for important people!)

According to his eldest sister, Mohammed was traveling from their home in Al-Zoor village to visit his father’s second wife at the time of the Jan. 26 drone strike.

Mohammed was traveling with two men who were members of AQAP (al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula), a source within the group previously told the Yemen Times. The sister said she is unaware whether the two men were AQAP members or not, but reaffirmed that her brother was innocent and was not a member of the organization.

Funny thing, Mohammed’s father and one of his brothers who was 17 at the time were blown apart by a drone back in 2011 while they were searching for a camel. It seems that his father and two of his brothers were sleeping when the drone spotted them. The drone was controlled by a CIA controller who had never been tired following a missing camel. And you know how difficult it is to ask questions about a situation from 20,000 feet so he blew them up. Hey,  you can’t be too careful driving a drone.

But the 14 year old brother hid in the rocks and was not killed but his brother and father were killed. He came home a day and a half later with the story. He had stayed in the rocks for a full day before he made his move.

Mohammed was 9 years at the time. Mohammed came from a large family. His father had four wives and 26 children—12 boys and 14 girls. And these are just a few of his brothers and sisters.

BROTHERS AND SISTERS

His father supported his family by buying and selling used cars and herding sheep and camels. He also received about $500 a month from the government. He had fought against the Russians in Afghanistan and on his return the Yemenis security officials provided these funds to him so he would not join the al Qaeda forces within Yemen.

After his death the Yemenis security officials stopped the government payment and the local AQAP (al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula) started to help out the family and has done so for the last three years.

So what does that tell us? Well 10 boys left to join the AQAP. That’s what!

So two drone strikes kills a father and two sons and sets up an additional 10 fighters for al Qaeda. That’s the math which then explains why we have a continued supply of enemies. AND THIS IS JUST ONE FAMILY!

Data collected by the human rights group Reprieve and presented last November maintains that attempts to kill 41 targeted individuals across Pakistan and Yemen in recent years resulted in the deaths of some 1,147 people, the vast majority civilians and families. At that rate the U.S. has created a fucking shit-load of enemies and Obomber still says, “It is not neat and it is not simple, but it is the best option that we have”.

IS IT, REALLY?
