NO REAL CHANGE!

Just so all of you that are upset because “As The World Turns” soap opera gave us all President Elect Tweet as President of the United States, there is STILL regular old world sanity to draw from to provide solace.

Nothing really has changed in the realm of extreme hypocrisy coming out of the U.S.

Our very own State Department is trained to maintain a very polished form of hypocrisy. And you may even marvel just how shiny it appears. Tubularsock personally recommends Bar Keepers Friend cleaner to keep down soap scum buildup. And dare say the Department of State has its full share of it while attempting to make America squeaky clean.

Just this week United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power who is pretty high on the “scum-as-you-are-list” accused 13 Syrian commanders and prison officials of responsibility for attacks on cities, residential areas and civilian infrastructure as well as acts of torture in Syria.

Now there is nothing new in that and the same old bad guys Assad and Russia were behind it all. And the fact that the U.S. is bombing Syria without any permission to be there and Russia was asked to come help Syria from being overthrown by the U.S. all seems to be lost on Samantha.

Powers may do well to read the definition of war crimes and one of those definitions centers around countries attacking other countries unprovoked. Now just who should be tried for that in Syria?

But here is the fun part for Tubularsock which makes Samantha such a riot!

She had the nerve to say aloud in front of others that, “The United States also knows where torture allegedly takes place in Syria.”

Well Samantha, the U.S. out of all the players in this conflict WOULD KNOW WHERE THE TORTURE TAKES PLACE IN SYRIA. Do you think it could be in the same locations of the “black-sites” the CIA used to torture under George W. Bush?

Funny that George W. Bush isn’t anyplace on this list you are handing out. Perhaps a bureaucratic oversight.

Now one has to wonder how we have gotten here. A few years back Assad was cooperating with Bush’s CIA to conduct torture for the U.S. and now we are wanting to try them for bombing “our side”.  And people think this Trump Thing is weird.

By now my fellow readers you know that when you are dealing with the U.S. hypocrisy it is always compounded. So the other aspect of this entire Samantha-in-fantasy-land is the International Criminal Court.

The detailed allegations seemed to be aimed at laying the groundwork for future war crimes prosecutions and could be the Obama administration’s 11th hour attempt to hold the Syrian government accountable for alleged atrocities while at the same time not noticing the American mirror image in this entire mess.

And here is the funny part, “. . . some time ago the United States backed out of being any part of the ICC because in signing into the agreement would make the U.S. responsible for its own actions and could be indicted by the ICC for crimes against humanity!

So Samantha Power is setting Syria up for crimes against humanity in a set up where the United States is immune!

AND PEOPLE THINK TRUMP IS POMPOUS?

COULD IT BE AN AMERICAN TRAIT?

Tube heading booksWHO’S ON FIRST?
Ok ……….. President Elect Tweet isn’t Laural and Hardy……… YET!
But looking at his minions …… Holy Shit, as the Pope would say.

But what does he stand for?

So far President Elect Tweet has changed his position on torture because he talked with Four Star General James N. Mattis and Mattis said, “(He) found more value in building trust and rewarding cooperation with terrorism suspects: “‘Give me a pack of cigarettes and a couple of beers, and I’ll do better.’”(NY Times)

On the link between human activity and climate change Tweet now says, “I think there is some connectivity … it depends on how much.” Now on the surface that doesn’t seem like much of a change but it is a MAJOR change from “. . . climate change was(is) a hoax fabricated by the Chinese”.

 

tube-environoment

President-elect Donald Tweet will not pursue an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Or anything else about the Clintons. This is a rather significant change of position from, “I will say this: Hillary Clinton has to go to jail, ok ? She has to go to jail, phony hit job. She’s guilty as hell.”

And then there’s OBAMACARE …….. from get rid of it to making legal changes made to President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

AND NOW Tweet is distancing himself from the alt-right movement as its white supremacist members claim his election as a boon for their agenda.
“I disavow and condemn them,” Tweet said Tuesday (11/22/16) during a wide-ranging interview with staff members of The New York Times.

AND THE WALL? Well, it may have to be scaled back a bit and just not be as long or high or maybe not at all.

And all this is where Tubularsock see some possibility of “hope and change” with President Elect Tweet ….. yes it is slight ……. very slight but a crack enough for possibly some “light” to get in.

We shall see ……… proceed but stay low because the ricochet may be risky.

But really, there is something refreshing about a person that can change direction when new information is presented and not be stopped by being wrong and refuse to change out of looking bad. On the contrary, President Elect Tweet views himself as NEVER WRONG about anything. Whatever position he holds that minute is CORRECT until it is not and then the exact opposite may be CORRECT. But DURING THE TIME he holds a position he is RIGHT!

And not only RIGHT but the GREATEST RIGHT you have ever witnessed bar none!

Now it can’t get better than that ………..

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)

THE ONLY PROBLEM

The only problem with the Presidential debate is that there is nothing to debate.

When a debate is conducted WITHIN THE LIE there are no possible solutions because there ARE NO intended solutions.

THE LIE IS the purpose and driving principle and that is why there is no intended solution.

All these Presidential “debates” are conducted within a closed box of false ideas and thereby provide an endless loop which appears to be confronted with different plans and solutions but because the entire premises is a lie all this process provides is endless delusion.

And that is why it “feels” like you have heard it all before … you have.

Because the lie is on going.

Now what does Tubularsock mean when he says LIE?

The easiest way to explain it is using a HUGE CHOCOLATE BAR. Who get the big chunks and who get the small chunks and who get the crumbs?

Within this huge chocolate bar there are a handful of nuts. In this campaign cycle if you haven’t identified the “nuts” yet, set this blog post aside and go shopping.

tube-crime-pays

For those remaining, let Tubularsock continue.

You see the entire bubble that Americans live within is the lie that has been perpetrated on us from birth …….. we are NOT “good people” as Hillary pontificated last night.

“Good People” don’t allow their leaders to burn people to death with napalm or blow people to pieces with cluster bombs or drop two atomic bombs on men, women, and children and rain death down upon other human beings with drones!

“Good people” don’t fall asleep to the fact that this nation was founded on the mass genocide of the Indigenous Peoples of North America and thereby stealing their land and destroying their culture.

“Good People” don’t allow slavery and degradation of people.

“Good People” don’t allow torture and solitary confinement of people!

And “good people” don’t continue to support endless wars of domination of OTHER PEOPLE’S natural resources in order to sustain a false lifestyle of wealth and prosperity.

BUT WE HAVE AND WE DO! And that is not a sign of “good people”!

We are a very selfish and self centered people and with all of this wealth around us we are still a desperate and unhappy people.

Drug abuse and the murder of each other doesn’t convey a Happy People.

Being absorbed into the latest electronic device helps sustain a barrier to real relationships and thereby intensify isolation from “other” which doesn’t convey a Happy People.

AND FEAR ……. fear appears to be the cornerstone of our past and current existence and doesn’t convey a Happy People.
Now all of this self-centeredness keeps us focused on attempting to hold onto the “stuff” that we have because along with everything else we have be taught that who we are is defined by what we’ve got!

And that may be the underpinning of the entire LIE.

YOU ARE NOT WHAT YOU’VE GOT!

You are a single independent being with enormous creative abilities.
And you are free ………….

Start from that premise and your world will change!

A LIE ONLY WORKS IF YOU BELIEVE IT!

Tubularsock has called this press conference today to say that Ted Cruz’s adventures into extramarital affairs
or Donald Trump’s romps with a variety of younger women are  JUST SHOCKING to Tubularsock.

Even Hillary, it has been rumored, has stepped out of line when it comes to marital fidelity.

And Bernie would have, it’s assumed, except Jane would have “cleaned-his-plow” among other things if he had done so!

In fact, if you look at the history of SEX in and around the White House, even if you exclude the Secret Service’s prostitutes, you would find that it is prolific.

So in Tubularsock’s continued effort to have a transparent Presidential Campaign and a complete open door policy in Tubularsock’s future Presidency, Tubularsock has to report to the American citizens that  THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER articles about Tubularsock are “GARBAGE”!

Tubularsock knows that Donald Trump in his continued jealousy over Tubularsock’s large hands and perfect hair has been having his publisher friends at THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER publish these disgusting attacks directed at Tubularsock!

 

Tube NE Scandal

Tube scandle 2

THESE STORIES ARE NOT TRUE! THEY ARE LYING FOR TRUMP! Plain and simple!

Now, it is true that in Tubularsock’s early days he was involved with June Cleaver. But only in the afternoons.

Tube and Cleaver

And Tubularsock had a three-way with Annette and a guy named Mickey.

Tube and annette

“Those were the days, my friend ……… we thought they’d never end.”

But this was the foolishness of youth that we all know so well!

 

AND IT IS TRUE THAT:

Tubularsock did talk positions with Hillary.

Tube:Hillary

And bear relationships with Sarah.

Tube:Sarah

And the size of Brought Worst with Merkel.

tube:merkle

And, oh sure ……… torture, bondage, and leather with Condi.

 

Tube:Condi

But these were ALL PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIPS!

So Tubularsock stands clear, honest and open. Just as he’d be as President.

Now, TED CRUZ ……… where do we go from here? Few Presidents have been able to keep it in their pants!

We as Americans already have to worry that if Hillary gets elected we’ll have to see the White House turned into

Bill Clinton’s Brothel! And you guys in Tubularsock Land hadn’t even thought of that to worry about! Or have you?

Lets look at Syria. But don’t Russia too fast you might trip.

Now Tubularsock wants to get to the bottom line quickly so you can unload all that anti-Russian neocon bull shit that is oozing out of the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and all of the rest of the fucked up stenographer-maimed-streamed-press.

From what is being pushed the CIA’s payroll to the “reporters-of-record” must be staggering!

Oh. And the fucking Congress too. What we have there is the classic Abbott and Castello antics of the dumb leading the stupid. The only difference is that Abbott and Castello made sense!

ISIS (aka … Al Qaeda in Iraq … AQI) is a terrorist organization that is crazier than bat shit and gives Muhammad a bad name! They are by far the largest group and the most effective fighters on the terrorists side of the coin.

Al Nusra is an Al Qaeda “affiliated” group that is the terrorist arm of the “Free Syrian Army”. Along with  Ahrar al-Sham and several small groups of fighters aligning with the “Free Syrian Army”. They are the “moderate-terrorists” supported by the CIA directly on the other side of the terrorist coin.

An interesting side note: The Free Syrian Army really doesn’t seem to exist. It has become “. . . a mosaic of fractions and is now largely ineffectual” according Irish journalist Patrick Cockburn.

And not only doesn’t “The Free Syrian Army” exist but the UN Security Council in a May 2012 decision “blacklisted Syria’s al-Nusra Front as an alias of al-Qaeda in Iraq”, namely the ISIL. So the two sides of the terrorist coin is only one side … TERRORISTS!

There is no such thing as a “moderate-terrorist”, PERIOD!

But the Russians are being criticized now for targeting this very group!

Tube:Vlad phone

The issue is that Russia is fighting terrorism ……… a good thing, yes?

But the United States are backing, training, funding, and supplying terrorists …. a bad thing, yes?

And the United States is also supporting ISIL (ISIS) by the fact that it was the United States’ CIA that created them and still supply them indirectly. Which is a bad thing, yes?

Now how is it that Russia is the bad guy?

Shall we continue pealing this onion? Any tears yet?

Why is it that the United States is aiding and abetting terrorists? Don’t we have laws on the books against doing that?

Well yes we do and in a sane world Obummer and his merry-men would all turn themselves into the nearest police station for breaking terrorist laws.

Tubularsock knows it isn’t a sane world so this won’t happen but it was just a fun side thought.

The United States is actually the greatest terrorist threat in the world today. We have supported terrorism for years. We even have a school where we teach terrorism.

It was called the U.S. Army School of the Americas but now it is called:

WESTERN HEMISPHERE INSTITUTE FOR SECURITY COOPERATION.

Or you can just call it for what it promotes:

THE TOTURE SCHOOL

THE SCHOOL OF ASSASSINS

THE SCHOOL OF COUPS

The United States also supports Saudi Arabia and supplies them with military supplies in great number which have been then passed on the ISIS. (Gosh, how’d that happen?)

Tubularsock is sure you remember that Saudi Arabia also provided money and support to the “al Qaeda” terrorists that attacked us on 9/11. (Gosh, they’re a trusted ally. How’d that happen?)

And it was the U.S. CIA that funded and trained al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden himself. (Oh golly gee …… How did that happen?)

Bin-CIA

Coincidence?

Yes, coincidence. Stuff like this just happens all the time. And it works a lot better if it is PLANNED-COINCIDENCE!

You see 9/11 wasn’t carried out by Russia because Russia is our “enemy”. See THAT would be too obvious …. get it?

No, 9/11 was carried out by Saudi Arabia an ally, see how it works now?

PART 2

And Saudi Arabia had assistance and they were “allies” as well. Heart warming isn’t it.

EVERY THING YOU THINK IS WRONG!

Oh that onion is still rather large ……. peel more?

Syria has been on the “overthrow” list of the United States for decades but even with that on the agenda the CIA used Syria between 2001-2003 to locate one of their torture prisons where those “suspects” were brought under “extraordinary rendition” to be ahhh, “interrogated”. Oh Tubularsock forgot, those were ENHANCED interrogations, got to have the correct protocol.

WATERBOARDING

No the Russians, who are no sweethearts themselves were NOT involved.

Just good old Syrians and Americans conducting the TORTURE. And Syrian officials supplied U.S. officials with all information extracted from “detainees”.

According to a 2013 report by the Open Society Foundation, Syria was one of the “most common destinations for rendered suspects” under the program.

Do you find it kind of odd that the U.S. could get along with Syria when they were helping us torture but we can’t get along with them now?

It was said by former CIA agent Robert Baer in his description of the policy to the New Statesman: “If you want them to be tortured, you send them to Syria. If you want someone to disappear – never to see them again – you send them to Egypt”.(2011)

And Egypt is our ally too!

Now how is it that Russia is the bad guy?

Wow, that onion sure isn’t going down very fast. Peel, peel …….

Now Tubularsock knows you have a life so Tubularsock might just have to eat the onion with a beer to wash it down to stop this wrenched story of America the beautiful.

But just not yet ………..

Obummer stood in front of the United Nations and gave one of his most delusional speeches he has given to date. No really, the chamber of diplomats were dumbfounded!

EVERYTHING in that speech was projection. As he condemned others and their “wrong doings” he was describing exactly what the United States has been doing to the rest of the world! Really. Truly delusional.

Oh god! Tubularsock is not even going to get into the disingenuous shit that oozed from his lips you can provide your own barf bag and listen to it yourself. Tubularsock will only point out just ONE historical fact to you and that will suffice.

Assad DID NOT gas his own people …….. NEVER HAPPENED!

The rocket that did gas people was a rocket that came from the “moderate terrorists” that WE supported with some indication that Turkey was involved. And Turkey is OUR ally!

Assad DID NOT DO IT ……….. WE DID!

This was investigated by the U.N. and reported to the world ……

The real question is why did Obummer lie that directly?

Reminds Tubularsock of the lies that Colin Powell spewed into the U.N. chambers about Saddam Hussein’s WMD’s.

A little déjà vu’-ish, don’t you think?

Both Black American Men

Same Middle East

Both Justifying War

Both lying

At the U.N.

Oh look, the onion is getting to its core center, peel, peel, peel.

The backbone of this entire mess was created by the Defense Planning Guidance for the 1994–99 fiscal years (dated February 18, 1992). The unofficial name for this document is THE WOLFOWITZ DOCTRINE named after Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Paul Wolfowitz. But don’t forget his deputy Scooter Libby. 

You remember them right ….. ahhhhh far right!

Paul was a major architect of Bush’s Iraq War and its most hawkish advocate.

And Paul went on to the World Bank and became all mixed up in a sex scandal with Shaha Riza losing his World Bank job over the entire sorted mess.

And Scooter became Cheney’s lap-dog and exposed Valerie Plame as a CIA operative and thus became a traitor to the United States but didn’t get prison time because Little Bush commuted Libby’s prison sentence.

As you can see Paul and Scooter have little in the way of integrity but even with this scum level persona the Wolfowitz Doctrine has been followed and used to direct U.S. foreign policy to the determinant of our country!

His Doctrine pushed for:

1. U.S. Primacy which establishes the U.S’s leadership role (leadership in this context meant taking over control of the world) within the new world order.

2. Unilateralism which downplays the value of international coalitions having the U.S. direct all action.

3. Pre-emptive intervention, the U.S’s right to intervene when and where it believed necessary.

4. And to STOP the possible threat posed by a resurgent Russia.

THIS IS THE UNDERLYING PROBLEM RIGHT HERE!

And until the United States breaks with this insanity we will be in perpetual wars.

As Obummers foreign advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski says: “It Is Infinitely Easier to Kill a Million People than it is to Control Them . . .”

And that means YOU folks ………….. Do you think a mind like THAT has a conscience?
