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!

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.

 

DENCEPENCE “TOOK A BUTT” AT OLYMPIC’S OPENING

Well it was bound to happen our dear fumble bumble Vice President DencePence in protest at the opening of the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea “took a butt” rather than a knee to protest. And HE’S a very white guy!

And really after all that sturm and drang about the NLF players with that knee thing and here is DencePence “taking a butt” to protest at a sports event.

And sure, it takes an ass to “take a butt”. No question!

 

Wouldn’t it be just great if some South Korean Olympic owner would stand up and say, “you are fired you son of a bitch”!

But that won’t happen because Koreans are a polite people and a public outburst of that nature would ONLY be acted out by a “round-eyed barbarian”. Proper decorum is still practiced in Asia.

You see at the opening of the Olympic Games both the South and North Koreans entered the proceedings together. You know, as Koreans.

But for DencePence that was NOT ACCEPTABLE because he represents a two Korean world. And HE’S a very white guy!

So in PROTEST he “took a butt” and didn’t stand as others did out of respect for the teams.

“At the opening ceremonies on Friday, Pence sat stone-faced in his seat as Moon and North Korean officials stood together with much of the stadium to applaud their joint team of athletes. White House officials stressed that Pence had applauded only for the American team, but Asia experts said the vice president’s refusal to stand could be seen as disrespectful to the hosts.” (By ZEKE MILLER and MATTHEW PENNINGTON | Sat, February 10, 2018)

Now DencePence has been spending his time warning everyone that North Korea was attempting to, “hijack the message and imagery of the Olympic Games” and to promote dialogue between the North and South.

This dialogue, is “propaganda” from DencePense’s point of view. And we sure can’t have that, now can we?

And who is this WE?

Koreans or Americans.

SAME AMERICAN BULLSHIT, DIFFERENT DAY!

 

NORTH KOREA IS CORRECT!

Our Vice President DensePence is in South Korea at the Olympics and of course “mother” is at his side in order to protect him from sexually “acting out” with other women.

Of course DensePence DIDN’T shake hands with North Korea’s ceremonial head of state, Kim Yong Nam but greeted or shook hands with all the other dignitaries. Thank God for “mother”! Just touching an Asian woman may send DencePense into sexual fantasies for all we know.

But DensePence still got his hard-on anyway when he reiterated Washington’s insistence that denuclearization by North Korea is a necessary condition for peace. Talking about playing with yourself!

MEANWHILE BACK AT THE RANCH …………

The United States released the US Nuclear Posture Review.

Within this review it is stated that the United States has “legitimized the first use of nuclear weapons against any opponent”.

And is going to spend trillions of dollars acquiring more nuclear weapons even though
ten percent of the existing U.S. arsenal is sufficient to destroy all life on earth.

 

 

Now reread the stated position of the United States above and then tell Tubularsock, WOULD YOU, AS NORTH KOREA, DENUCLEARIZE?

Now you can see why North Korea wants THE BOMB?

It sure doesn’t take a Rhodes Scholar to figure out why this “denuclearization by North Korea” is not going to happen!

And why should it? IT IS THE ONLY PROTECTION IT’S GOT!

 

KOREAN CRIP ALLOWED INTO TRUMP COUNTRY?

 

If you hadn’t noticed a crippled Korean was allowed into the State of the Union address even though he was a former NORTH KOREAN.

Tubularsock thought we had a WALL to protect us from the “evils” of North Korea!

Come to find out the entire Congress are in favor of North Korean cripples. Or at least it appeared that way with all of them standing up and applauding. Damn!

Now don’t you worry ……. it wasn’t real, it was a sympathetic ploy for war and we ALL can stand united for that! Right?

It is just part of the old “North Korea is so brutal to THEIR OWN CITIZENS” that WE (AMERICA) must “protect” Koreans by bombing them back to the stone age in order to save them from their own evil government.

In a lot of ways it is Trump’s new campaign:

“MAKE MORE KOREANS CRIPPLED AGAIN”.

(Oh sure, Tubularsock has made hats!)

But this isn’t even that creative. It’s the old Iraq weapons of mass distraction ploy. Will Americans be fooled again ….. SO SOON?

Because the words have already been used pushing exactly the same bull shit. It is just OrangeFuck mouthing them.

Flash back to DumbFuckShrub, remember how Shrub explained that the Saddam Hussein regime “. . . ha(d) already used poison gas to murder thousands of its own citizens . . .”? (Of course after the Reagan Administration sold them the chemicals, you know for “farm” use.)

You see, this kind of imagery is the stepping stones to preparing the American citizens for another WAR to save humanity.

After all, we have to attack them there rather than have them right here in OUR HOMELAND!

 

Remember how this works?

But really, it’s too late!

“OUR”(?) President has already LET IN a North Korean Crip! They are already here!

But as President Dump put it, “North Korea’s reckless pursuit of nuclear missiles could very soon threaten our homeland . . .” He left out the classic line “in the shape of a mushroom cloud” that the Shrub Team used so effectively. Too bad.

And those North Koreans have AT LEAST one or two nukes compared to the U.S. nuclear arsenal which if placed end to end would reach to Mars and back BUT IT IS those North Koreans that are dangerous!

Hell somebody might REALLY USE THEM on civilians!

Oh, yeah ……. we already have …….. twice!

So why is Tubularsock supposed to be scared again?

Well, there IS A REASON TO BE SCARED …………………

President OrangeTweet picked Dr. Victor Cha for nomination as the U.S. Ambassador to South Korea.

Cha was vetted and has been approved by South Korea as well. Cha is a very capable and knowledgeable choice to be Ambassador and as American Ambassadors go maybe overqualified if there is such a thing.

So for OrangeTweet to pick him was a surprise to Tubularsock.

BUT as the world turns …….. a few days ago Cha was pulled from the list by the Trump Administration.

WHY? Sure you asked!

Because in private Dr. Victor Cha expressed concerns about a military strike approach to North Korea!

Well good bye, Victor!

It appears that the Trump Administration believes that a “bloody nose” strategy on North Korea is all that it will take to keep North Korea in line.

And the “bloody nose” strategy goes like this:

If in the future North Korea does a missile test or other provocative act the American response would be a carefully targeted attack on a North Korean military facility. But this is exactly why North Korea wants nuclear weapons! North Korea doesn’t want to be Syria or Iraq where the U.S. can bomb anytime it gets upset!. No, with nuclear weapons …….. the warmongering Americans have to think twice.

HAVING nuclear weapons keeps from being attacked at the whim of the U.S.! What is so difficult to understand here?

Now if one reverses this Trump-esque insanity:

If the U.S. happened to do something that North Korea took as a provocative act and North Korea responded by “carefully targeting” a U.S. ship to show their disapproval, just what do you think the U.S.response would be?

Yep!

So, how can it be assumed that an irrational Kim Jong-un, as he is portrayed, would take it all in stride and not assume that this “selected rational limited attack” wasn’t a full out attack and in response start a war that kills hundreds of thousands of North and South Korean civilians and large numbers of US troops in a matter of hours?

AND THE ENVELOPE PLEASE ……………….

BOOOOOOOOM!

 

PRESENT AT THE CREATION

Tubularsock was sitting in his Corner Office In His Underground Bunker Overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA. (see BUNKER TOUR for background) and pondering the absurd world we find ourselves.

But hey, what in the fuck would you expect if in each last election you had to vote for the “lessor of the two evils”!

 

 

It is just logical that in time you’d have to reach the bottom of the barrel, RIGHT?

And the real scary thing is that Orange Fuck and his deranged offspring and his third plastic wife may not be at the bottom.

Think about it! Makes WW3 look better already, doesn’t it!

 

 

So is there a way out?

So kick back and think of your options.

Sure Tubularsock has some options to suggest.

And remember these are only for fun, not real change.

 

 

First: We grab Pussy-Whipped-Session’s and give him a marijuana suppository to loosen up his dysfunctional brain and bring him into the 21st century!

Second: We remove the Christian Cross turned sideways from Pence’s ass to relieve the pressure on his brain as he waits for the second coming.

And Third ……. oh hell you come up with one! After all isn’t that what democracy is all about?

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!
