Well “good morning America how are ya?”(City of New Orleans by Steve Goodman)

Tubularsock has been hangin’ in the bunker in awe and amazement once again over how the shit that is spewed from the United States Government’s propaganda machine works so well. Even though it is straight-up lies and then those lies are smeared with bat shit. People in this country eat it right up. And EVEN the Europeans are at the table.

Well it only goes to show that vested interests dine at the same trough.

The entire propaganda ploy is really simple: Create and control the narrative FIRST.

That means that once you implement your fiendish plan you control the emotional thought patterns of the people.

You then continue to repeat the false narrative often regardless of what REAL truth comes out.

It is all a ploy but it works. And it has been used repetitively.

Need examples?


9/11 …………… On the day the three buildings at the World Trade Center collapsed into they own footprint and in truck-able sized steel pieces the controlled narrative was being propagated.

And that narrative. Osama bin Laden did it!

Tubularsock hadn’t even finished his first cup of coffee before he was told that Osama bin Laden did it and that was repeated every minute of every day for years.

And why did Osama bin Laden do it?

He didn’t like our freedom.

Now remember that information was put out there so fast that the smoke hadn’t even cleared New York yet.

Not only that but ALL the news outlets knew EVERYTHING about Osama bin Laden even the address of the cave he was planning all this from in Afghanistan!

Now who was feeding the news media this information? Oh, come on …… just guess.

Remember ………… No one could have possibly THOUGHT that someone would fly planes into buildings said Condo-Rice and Little-bush-shit. So then how could they ALL know who did it and where he was and why he did it AND put it out to the media so rapidly?

And to this day if you would like to clear a space for yourself on a city bus or have room to drink alone at a cocktail party or to find alone time in a full cafe all you have to do is start to question the 9/11 narrative. The bull shit produced by the U.S. government has worked THAT well!


AND TO SEAL THE DEAL: To this day the majority of Americans still believe that Saddam Insane had something to do with the attack on 9/11!

EVEN after both Little-bush-shit and torture-cheney have come out and said that they had never said what they said about Saddam’s involvement. EVEN when you can see them say it on video and also see them say they didn’t say what they said on video.

Bottom line: The one out first with the narrative, even though it’s a lie, is the narrative that sticks in the minds of the masses! PERIOD!

Assad used chemical weapons on his own people ……………

That narrative was pushed by the American Government in the media and Assad was condemned and assailed as a heartless murderer.

Well, he didn’t do that!

tube fix

It was discovered by international investigation that it was the U.S. supported terrorists that used chemical weapons on people. NOT the Assad Government.

It was because of that information that Obama had to drop the bombing of Syria idea.

But Obummer knew that ALL THE TIME.

Yet, just this week Tubularsock was reading a current article that referenced Assad’s use of chemical weapons ……….. remember the FIRST narrative sticks!

Which bring us to what Tubularsock  wanted to talk about …………  The flight of MH17 and it’s demise over Ukraine.

Now to many Tubularsock readers you already know this because you keep up with the BSN (bull-shit-narrative). For you, you can use your extra time by not reading further and polishing your Molotov cocktails. Or for many of you polishing off any kind of cocktails for that matter!

Now that the room is cleared …………..

Propaganda is much like a horse race. You want your horse out of the gate FIRST because that is the narrative that will be remembered.


And what came out first? Russia was responsible, PERIOD!

No proof, no investigation, no nothing EXCEPT ……… Russia was responsible, PERIOD!

That is the first hint that the narrative is false and of course …….. it is!

And then the corollary narrative ……… the Pro-Russian rebels were responsible which is equally false.

A simple trick Tubularsock always uses when these incidents occur is logic.

Why would Russia blow up an international flight of civilians over another country? What would be their advantage in doing that?

To what advantage would the Pro-Russian rebels have in blowing up an international flight of civilians?

To win friends and influence people? Come now!

So it is obvious that there is NO advantage for either of them to do this …….. nada!

So that leaves the American-puppet government of Ukraine.

And from the facts so far on the ground it appears that MH17 was shot down by the American-puppet government of Ukraine’s air-force. Not by a ground missile.

tube 1+1

And the reason Tubularsock feels this information may be the correct answer is also based on logic.

And the logic goes like this ……….

The Russians have released satellite imagery showing that MH17 was in the same airspace with two Ukraine jet fighters just before the “incident”. There also were no sign of ground missile activity. But the Russian imagery is not as technologically as clear as the imagery that the spy satellite that the United States had flying over the same area would be IF THE U.S. RELEASED THAT IMAGERY.

Which means that OBUMMER KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED and rest assured that if it “proved” that Russia was really responsible it would have been out of the gate weeks ago.

That for Tubularsock PROVES that the American narrative is a pack of shit!

Also recall that a few days after MH17 going down the U.S. released satellite imagery showing Russian missiles being fired across their border into Ukraine to help the Pro-Russian rebels. And ranting about that “unlawful” activity.

Which only shows Tubularsock that the satellite imagery the U.S. has of the downing of MH17 does not support the American narrative!

tube special report

Dylan’s Italian America

Well ……… Tubularsock has found it. In Bob Dylan’s song Mississippi on his 2001 album Love and Theft the catch phrase is “ . . . the only thing, that I did wrong was stay in Mississippi a day too long”.

Now the SECOND thing Bob has done wrong was sell his questionable idol image to the Chrysler Commercial bullshit ad for the 2014 Super Bowl.

The catch phrase in the “Nostalgic” Chrysler ad bullshit is, “Is there anything more American than America.”

Now the reaction has been swift from the “liberals” and “progressives” about Bob SELLING OUT.

For Christ sake are they kidding?

Tubularsock never saw Bob Dylan as ever really BUYING IN so how could he SELL OUT.

Let’s get something straight ……….. Bob Dylan is no Pete Seeger or Woody Guthrie!

These men were writing and singing their songs because they were believers in what their song’s messages were about …….. they sang their songs and walked their talk!

You would have NEVER EVER seen Pete or Woody do a Super Bowl Ad! It would have been total sacrilege of everything they believed in and dedicated their lives to attempt to change in this “America than American”!

But Dylan wrote some incredible and powerful songs but he was a performer and song writer not a true crusader. Even during his civil rights years it was Joan Baez that was the crusader not Dylan.

Now don’t get Tubularsock wrong here, Dylan stands alone as the sage of the 1960’s.

He not only chronicled the period but his work defined and advanced it.

But he himself only realized that his work was created as a creative “third”. He put voice to the feelings of the time and captured for eternity the essence of the moment.

It was others that kept trying to contain Bob Dylan not Dylan himself.

That entire “going electric” thing was the “static fan base” trying to keep creative performance from developing. Dylan was into growth not tradition. Which is surprising when you compare the “Nostalgic” Chrysler ad bullshit of today.

But times do change as The Times Are A Changing.

Even Pete Seeger and his Weavers played the Thunderbird in Las Vegas in 1951.

And Bob Dylan over the years has passed through Las Vegas many times. After all business is business.

But where Pete Seeger was always pushing an agenda until his recent death Bob Dylan moved from a sage into a businessman.

His recent work doesn’t come close to the grandeur of his early work but THEN he was a conduit of the times and those times have changed into the narrow self-centered money-hungry egotistic psychopathic times we are witnessing today.

To make money off your past fame for several million dollars is considered “normal”.

Embarrassing to those who READ INTO Dylan’s persona, much like those that READ INTO Obama’s persona. Your projection is not reality! You really haven’t been fooled, you have misread what they were about. THAT is not their fault!

It is YOU that is at fault. Wake the fuck up!

But that is not the fun part of the “Nostalgic” Chrysler ad bullshit. The fun part is that after they boringly run this non-creative advertisement about nostalgic America , with James Dean, and Route 66, and American Diners the over-voice of Dylan then says,

“So let Germany brew your beer. Let Switzerland make your watch. Let Asia assemble your phone. We . . . will build . . . your car.”

Wow. Tubularsock even saw the American flag waving over “Car-Lot-America” until he realized  that Chrysler is a wholly owned subsidiary of Italian multinational automaker Fiat!

“Is there anything more American than America.”
