TRUMP & SANTA 2018

HALT, the bull shit train!

Every year for decades now NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, has followed Santa Claus on Christmas Eve as he zips around the world dropping down chimneys delivering presents to GOOD little girls and boys.

Sure he does.

NORAD’s aerospace control includes ensuring air sovereignty and air defense of the airspace of Canada and the United States and is on duty 24/7 three hundred and sixty five days a year EXCEPT September 11, 2001. But hey, who’s counting?

Children are encouraged to call NORAD for information of the location of Santa Claus at any given moment to be told if he’s on track.

And some years some children’s calls are diverted so they also can speak to the President or the First Lady as a political PR stunt.

Michelle Obama answered children’s calls for several years while being First Lady.

And so it goes ………. Melania performed her PR duty just like Michelle and all was well in Christmas land.

And then President Orange-Scrooge took some calls this year as well.

But first he had to close down the government …… HO, HO, HO!

You know, President Orange-Scrooge doesn’t seem to do ANYTHING correctly. Do you know what Tubularsock means?

No?

 

Well let Tubularsock give you this example:

President Orange-Scrooge took a call from a 7 year old child and during the course of the conversation the question of Believing In Santa Claus came up. The child’s response was “yes sir” indicating a belief in the jolly old Claus, when President Orange-Scrooge proceeded with “. . . at 7, it’s marginal, right?”

Now the child didn’t know what marginal meant or what the reference meant so all was good in Christmas land.

But REALLY, a guy who lies ALL THE TIME chooses at that moment to start to “tell the truth” about the existence of Santa Claus …….. REALLY?

Yet there is a much larger point Tubularsock wants you to consider.

And that is the Santa Claus LIE. That should give you pause.

Your parents LIE to you that Santa Claus is REAL!

You can call up your government on a special phone line and be told Santa Claus is REAL!

And think on this ………. THE GOVERNMENT tracks Santa just like they track YOU and that is REAL.

And the President and First Lady tells you Santa Claus is REAL!

AND YOU BELIEVE …………..

So when the times comes when you are told by your parents, your government, and your President and First Lady that Santa Claus is “AN ENEMMY COMBATANT” or an ISIS infiltrator or terrorist sympathizer will you believe THAT as well?

Sure you will!

That is how we got into the Vietnam War, and Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen!
And the citizen’s believed ……….. and that same Santa Lie continues today.

So it would do us all good if President Orange-Scrooge received a huge chunk of “clean-coal” in his Christmas stocking this year.

Maybe he will, if Santa Mueller has anything to say about it!

But unfortunately, OrangeTweet isn’t the only Santa liar out there!

AMERICA SCAMMED AGAIN!

As Tubularsock has mentioned before, Donald Trump is the symptom as well as the result of an America that has fallen off the tracks.

Any country that spends its time at war and not at peace is a sick country.

Americans have been willingly led down the primrose path by leaders that really don’t have the general interest of the “people” at heart.

EVERYTHING has been corporatized and that is epitomized by Citizens United!

The very first give away is when something is entitled with the term “Citizens” …… yes, a dead give away!

That ALWAYS means that a real citizen isn’t within a thousand mile radius of the pronouncement.

Now, of course here is a Tubularsock aside: Have you ever wondered what would happen if the poor would form a Corporation?

They could infinitely expand their lifestyle incomes with golden parachutes and fly first class all with smiling politicians bending over backwards with shit eating grins handing out new installments of corporate welfare checks WITHOUT the stigma of getting a hand out from the government!

Rather cool, RIGHT? Or LEFT …….. is there a real difference anymore? Not that Tubularsock has noticed.

Well shit! Another Tubularsock aside! (Can Tubularsock EVER stay on topic?)

Have you noticed that the RIGHT, whatever that is, is ALWAYS being goaded by the fear of “left-thinking”, whatever that is, and the LEFT, whatever that is, is ALWAYS being goaded by the fear of “right-thinking”, whatever that is?

But at the same time the power structure continues its agenda, whatever that is, to the point that if you really stop and look at it ………. something is being directed here without our consent.

For example, every time a poll is taken of the general public’s view about the U.S. going to war a resounding number of American citizens say NO TO WAR!

Yet ………. we have been at war THAT WE HAVE CAUSED for the last fifty plus years!

Oh sure, it’s called another name. You know, like a “Police Action”. That was what the Korean War was called AND IT’S NOT OVER YET!

And we always start the wars by propagandizing the citizens with, ….. “THEY attacked us” ….. as in a Vietnamese Gunboat attacked on an American ship in the Gulf of Tonkin. Then off we go blowing the hell out of Vietnam burning to death hundreds of thousands men, women, and children to SAVE AMERICA!

Only to discover that that incident in the Gulf of Tonkin NEVER HAPPENED!

So much for the “FREE PRESS”! Bull shit in, bull shit out!

And NOW those dangerous Vietnamese that threatened America then are now being sold armaments from our military-industrial-complex! God-Fucking-Bless-America!

Or Afghanistan …… why did we attack Afghanistan?

Oh yeah, Tubularsock remembers now, …….. to get bin Laden. And for what? There is still no proof that bin Laden planned 9/11. And before being attacked the Afghan Government said they’d turn bin Laden over to the U.S. if PROOF was provided that bin Laden was guilty.

But it was easier to bomb them than provide PROOF so seventeen years and still no proof, just continuous war.

And it’s good to remember:

9/11 WAS NOT AN INSIDE JOB!

IT WAS AN OUTSOURCED JOB.

THE U.S. ALWAYS OUTSOURCES IT’S TERRORIST ACTIVITIES!

Oh but the American population has forgotten Afghanistan because it’s now Syria ad nauseam. And Syria has DONE NOTHING to the U.S.! Oh well.

And don’t even get into Africa ……….. we are destabilizing Africa BIGLY but most Americans don’t even know we are there with our military.

And the Imbecile In Chief still thinks Africa is a “Bigly” country!

Which brings us back to Citizens United.

Money = votes and those with the most money = control. That is NOT democracy that is plutocracy and that is what Citizens United has created!

If a corporation is a person then ipso facto a person is a corporation! So just maybe the citizens may want to shift their status.

And hell, it’s cheaper than a sex change!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MONEY TO BLOW!

1million 400 thousand dollars for ONE cruse missile and we sent 105 cruse missiles into Syria to destroy three supposedly chemical sites.

$1,400,000.00 times 105 = 147million dollars divided by 3 = $49,000,000. per target area.

And because 42 people in Syria were gassed by chemical weapons, so they say?

42 divided into 147,000,000.00 = $3,500,000.00 per gassed person.

Wow, and did it bring them back to life?

 

So WHO exactly profited?

 

Now when you look at the poor in this country both parties are not even close to outstanding in assisting the poor much at all.

But it is the Republican’ts who yell loudest against the poor. Yet few in either party ever question paying $1,400,000.00 for a Tomahawk Missile and then to blow off 105 of them and all prance around like something of importance has taken place is pathetic.

And then Trump-Puppet-Of-The-Neo-cons (TPOTN) acts like he has accomplished some major victory (“Mission Accomplished”) is pathetic as well. Talkin’ ‘bout LOSERS, Dumps our man!

 

And all of this bombing with no proof that chemical weapons were even used.

 

And recall that the last time this chemical thing came down Dump rushed off and bombed a Syrian airbase and killed 80 people. Again WITHOUT ANY PROOF that chemical weapon were really used.

Months after that bombing Secretary of Defense James Mattis stated that the U.S. has “no evidence” that the Syrian government used the banned nerve agent Sarin against its own people.

Yet the U.S. bomb and killed 80 people.

 

But this isn’t a new policy ……. The U.S. has been doing this for years upon years.

According to international law a country that attacks another country that does not pose a threat to that country is committing a war crime. So the U.S. has committed many war crimes. But hell we don’t count them when we do it.

And we call Iran and North Korea aggressive. When was the last time has either country attacked the U.S.?

How many times have Iraq or Libya attacked the U.S.?

Which makes the attack on the U.S. on 9/11 against the U.S. permissible behavior from an American standard. So why did WE get so pushed out of shape? It’s the same thing we do whenever we like, to other countries around the world.

Right?
HEY, IT’S THE AMERICAN WAY!

But none of these countries have attacked us, WE HAVE ATTACKED THEM but we call THEM the aggressors. Now that is some gold plated American BULL SHIT if you ask Tubularsock.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WARJÀ VU

Do you ever get that “feeling” that you have seen this before?

Well Tubularsock calls it WARJÀ VU.

It is that “Here we go again moment”.

 George W. Bush promised a humble foreign policy with no nation building:

“If we don’t stop extending our troops all around the world in nation-building missions, then we’re going to have a serious problem coming down the road. And I’m going to prevent that.” (Candidate Bush)

He criticized the Clinton-Gore Administration for being too interventionist.

 

                                      Barack Obama spoke out against the impending war in Iraq in the fall of 2002 and in 2004 questioned the Bush administration’s management of the Iraq War, and highlighted America’s obligations to its soldiers.

 

As Ivo Daalder, a former National Security Council official under President Clinton who later headed up a team advising Obama on nonproliferation issues, put it, “There’s a feeling that this is a guy who’s going to help us transform the way America deals with the world.”

AND YET, Obama pursued similarly imperialistic policies to those of his predecessor, George W. Bush.
In fact, if you are counting Obama out did Bush in bombing and killing!

Bush: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Somalia.

Obama: Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria.

 

“I will never send our finest into battle unless necessary, and I mean absolutely necessary, and will only do so if we have a plan for victory with a capital V,” he thundered. “The world must know that we do not go abroad in search of enemies.” (candidate Trump)

Trump’s view  of the Iraq War BEFORE he was President:

*** March 2007 interview on CNN (“Declare victory and leave”)

*** 2008 interview with British GQ (“First, I’d get out of Iraq right now”)

*** 2011 interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan where Trump said he’d get US troops in Iraq “out real fast.”

Donald Trump promised an America First foreign policy that would shrink the US role on the world stage and spend more money at home than abroad.

 

1. Sending more American troops to Afghanistan.
no timetable for when those troops would come home.

2. Syria, where Trump has deployed sizable numbers of American combat forces and directly attacked the military of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

3. Iraq, Trump has not only dispatched hundreds of new US troops to the country but has also put them closer to the front lines and given them more freedom to bombard targets from the air.

4. In Yemen, elite US special operations forces are conducting ground assaults while the US wages an increasingly brutal air campaign against

Trump even mused about sending the US military into Venezuela, though he didn’t offer any explanation of why or what their mission would be.

This is the exact opposite of what many of Trump’s core supporters had expected. And same went for Obama and Bush!

And here is the key:

We have never left the neoconservative foreign policy paradigm that the U.S. must dominate the world. And that is where regime change comes into play.

So these continuous wars that we find ourselves in, REGARDLESS OF THE FEELINGS OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC, are due to a pre-fixed program of American domination.

And no matter which Party or what the President says about being AGAINST WAR, they are not.

Yet the public falls for it time after time.

As Zbigniew Brzezinski expressed, “Most Americans are close to total ignorance about the world. They are ignorant. That is an unhealthy condition in a country in which foreign policy has to be endorsed by the people if it is to be pursued. And it makes it much more difficult for any president to pursue an intelligent policy that does justice to the complexity of the world.”

So the way the ignorant citizen is directed into this false and dangerous foreign policy is by “false-flag” actions such as the Gulf of Tonkin and the 9/11.

Because an external enemy threat has been the tool to keep the citizens in line even when they are opposed to continuous wars.

 

And now ENTER JOHN BOLTON and GINA HASPEL!

John Bolton is so conservative that he, years ago, had fallen off the “right” end of the conservative spectrum into the lunatic fringe.

He believes that a first strike against North Korea and Iran would be acceptable.

He falls in with the Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz crowd that brought us the Iraq War.

BUT BOLTON STILL BELIEVES IT WAS A GOOD IDEA.

Yes, not only delusional but just plain stupid in the dangerous way.

And Trump has appointed him his National Security Advisor.

AND THEN THERE’S GINA!

Trump has appointed her the new Director of the CIA.

She not only condones torture but oversaw a black-site in Thailand for the purpose of torturing prisoners.

And on top of BEING A WAR CRIMINAL for that she also prepared the cable granting permission to destroy tapes with an industrial shredder of the interrogation sessions of terror detainees.

This was done after the CIA had been instructed NOT TO destroy the tapes.

The direction to prepare the cable granting destruction of evidence was given by Jose Rodriguez, director of the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center.

And is the classic case of “just following orders” from Gina.

SO HERE WE COME AROUND AGAIN ……… WAR HAS TO HAPPEN!

And it will.

Which leads us to THE NEXT FALSE FLAG EVENT.

It is necessary to galvanize the American Public into supporting a war or wars they really don’t want.

Wouldn’t it be fun if Tubularsock was WRONG?

Sadly, he’s not. You’ll see.

 

REMEMBER SYRIA?

The question of the hour …… WHEN IS INTERVENTION in someone else’s country not a war?

 

Somehow Tubularsock recalls Fat-Tweet-Trump on the campaign trail in October of 2016 saying, “What we should do is focus on ISIS. We should not be focusing on Syria, you’re going to end up in World War III over Syria if we listen to Hillary Clinton.”

Well, Tubularsock figures that FTT did listen to Hillary Clinton and this last week Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced that the United States with several thousand troops on the ground in Syria will keep those troops there until the government of President Bashar al-Assad is overthrown.

 

So now, WE ARE BACK TO REGIME CHANGE again.
Though in truth we never really left the idea … and like Obummer before him, Orange Tweet just lied.

Which makes him in with Obummer and the Witch Clinton. However Trump’s stay in Syria will be the most “Bigly” stay “Ever”! No one’s stay in Syria has EVER been as BIGLY!

Just goes to show you how weak and slimy Fat-Tweet-Trump happens to be. All the signs of a small dick. Thank you Stormy.

But Tubularsock would say that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson statement is what really takes the cake as when he spouted, “President Bashar al-Assad regime is corrupt, and its methods of governance and economic development have increasingly excluded certain ethnic and religious groups.”

And Saudi Arabia? Israel? Ukraine? Sounds pretty close to all of them but we’re not sending troops into those “allies” countries, now are we …… yet.

It appears that Tillerson is getting confused between the actions of the Assad Administration and the actions of the Trump Administration and their social and economic policies toward their respective citizens.

Oh well, who counts?

So let’s get real and down right personal. Has a Syrian EVER caused YOU any harm in your entire life?

Well?

You see, that is why 9/11 shouldn’t be taken so seriously by Americans. Our country 9/11’s Syria EVERYDAY and that seems to be accepted by the American public. So let’s get over those damn 3000 dead and move on.

The U.S. 9/11’ed Iraq, Libya, and even Yemen and we want to push on to Iran!

And you recall the American’s silly question after 9/11, right?

“Why did they attack us?”
And the Bush Administration said it was BECAUSE OF OUR FREEDOM?

Yeah …… our freedom to blow them up at will. Our freedom to “influence” their elections. Our freedom to take their resources.

If this question and answer seems ridiculous to you then you are on the correct track.

If this is still your question, then ask yourself which country in the world has been at war 222 out of 239 Years of its existence? Our country has been at war 93% of our time calculated as of March 19, 2017. (http://freakonometrics.hypotheses.org/50473)

AND MANY OF THESE WARS THE U.S. WERE THE AGGRESSOR!

MAYBE MOST IF THE OVERALL VIEW IS TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION.

 

And our goal is to destabilize the country or regions in order to control. The United States has no interest in the people but with their resources and geographic positioning.

That is why we’ll bomb a village, town, or city to “save” it! OH, but ONLY in the name of humanity!

So in truth 9/11 was just “blowback” we deserved.
But American’s were made to believe that “THEY” did it to us!
THE DECEIVED ARE DIRECTED MORE EASILY!

 

Tubularsock doesn’t want any of you to “drop the ball” but no matter what the NFL does doesn’t really matter very much.

However North Korea is under the belief that our current Orange-Small-Penis-Professional-Tweeter-President has declared WAR on them.

Now where would Kim get that idea?

 

Shit for brains Donald just can’t shut the fuck up. As a world embarrassment Trump takes the chocolate cake. And somebody is going to get killed.

Now if Kim and his boys could hit Mar-a-Lago while Trump and his entire family was visiting Tubularsock would even help North Korea with the coordinates and put a big ol’ X on the spot. But Google Maps would work just as well. And then Tubularsock wouldn’t be hauled into the hoosegow as a accessory. Now just forget Tubularsock even brought this up and take this blog you have in front of you and slip it into Jared’s private emails he has been using to correspond to White House staff a-la-Hillary!

Tubularsock feels so much better. GO KOREA! RAH!

But it’s not even the real problem. The real problem is that Michael Flynn, Jared Kushner, Stephen Bannon met with Saudi King Abdullah in secret, according to recently released documents, to discuss high-stake contracts to sell nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia. This discussion had to do with their personal business interest. Not government business.

As one nuclear expert put it, selling nuclear technology to Saudi Arabia is like selling “a nuclear weapons starter kit”.

“Any proposal to introduce dozens of nuclear reactors to the Middle East, particularly Saudi Arabia, raises many proliferation red flags . . . The Saudis do not need nuclear power and them gaining access could lead to dangerous consequences down the road.”
(Daryl Kimball, Arms Control Association ….. BuzzFeed)

But that didn’t seem to bother Flynn, Kushner, and Bannon! You know they worked for Trump, The Art of the Deal!

Now Tubularsock wants to be fair here. It isn’t just Trump business, remember who helped to introduce nuclear technology to Iraq ……. Dick Cheney and Halliburton.

And funny fact ……. Cheney did it EVEN THOUGH it was against the law OF THE UNITED STATES to sell nuclear technology to Iraq! Another The Art of the Deal!

You see, there is making money and there is protecting the country. When it is making money THEY are all over it!

When it comes to protecting the country (their business interests) YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS ARE SENT TO DO THAT JOB!

AND WHAT IS STILL AMAZING TO TUBULARSOCK: YOU CONTINUE TO WAVE THE FUCKING FLAG AS THEY HELP KILL YOUR CHILDREN FOR THEIR PROFIT!

JUST HOW FUCKING STUPID ARE YOU AMERICA ……….

 

 

LET’S WAR SOME MORE!

Well thank the Gods that THAT’S OVER!

Another 9/11 has hit the history dust bin again and we are still in the dark over just which Saudi and Carlyle Group investment scheme helped to do it.

 

But hell that is water under the bridge so really who cares anyway. Everybody is dead and buried and what in the fuck do they want, they all got a gillion dollar memorial and tourist book store!

We’ve got bigger fish to fry!

And by golly we’ll poke somebody with a stick hard enough to have them attack say like a rowboat floating next to the USS BULLSHIT and we’ll have that UNIFYING WAR each president starts to rally the citizen behind the president. NO MATTER HOW FUCKING STUPID HE HAPPENS TO BE!

And before you anal retentive Trumpites get all pushed out of shape over the above sentence, well it refers to Baby Shrub and the gaggle of assholes that occupied his administration.

Not that Orange Tweet isn’t attempting to corner the market on “STUPID” but Shrub beat him to it on this subject.

And it is true that once the “General” took over as “Chief of Staff” Orange Tweet is learning to bend over for the neocons so ALL IS GOOD in dip-shit-land.

So will it be North Korea? Russia? China? Nope, everyone is tried of hearing about them already. Boring!

 

 

No we have to have another Grenada! You remember 1983 and the proposed THREAT TO THE UNITED STATES by the Caribbean Island of Grenada, right?

Parkinson-riddled-brain-dead-Ronald-Reagan sent in 10,000 American troops to protect the U.S. against several hundred lightly armed policemen and Cuban construction workers.

The U.S. military lost 19 and incurred 116 injuries during the eight day “war” but peace came at last and Paul Scoon was reinstated as the Governor-General of Grenada who represented the monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.

And of course the American public supported the invasion even though it was a flagrant violation of international law. Because the United States is a government of laws not of men. Or so the story is told. Go figure that out.

BUT WE WON! And this was our “brave?” military’s first operation conducted after our Grand War with Vietnam which we LOST at pretty much ever criteria one could list.
So you can see how important the War With Grenada (WWG) was then. We really are winners, no really we are, and our military will kill unarmed men, women and children in any number to prove it!

So presently we have an entire 5 sided building filled with dedicated workers finding just the “right” place to attack next in the name of freedom.

Hell we need a win!
