Kavanaugh Ethics Scam

Well Tubularsock knows that some of you out there have had to interview for a job sometime in your current life. Right?

And doing that, depending on the position you were attempting to acquire, you had to provide information about your past work experience and perhaps some letters of recommendation showing your past achievements, experience, and character.

And once that was completed you were interviewed and had either been hired or not depending on how well you fit the job culture you wished to enter.

Of course, that was determined by the hiring team and/or boss considering your qualifications.

Pretty common stuff.

How often were you ever hired to do the job AND THEN AFTER you were hired and working at the job, your boss THEN decided to review your past ethics complaints?

You see in normal cases that would have been done BEFORE you got the job.

Well then, you just picked the wrong job!

You see, if you would had gone for being a Justice on the Supreme Court then you would have gotten the job AND THEN your ETHICS would then be looked into by your boss.

Sure it is ass backwards but we are talking government service here NOT A REAL JOB!

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. has, according to a letter made public, has stated that he has been asked by the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit to transfer at least 15 ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to the 10th Circuit, which is based in Denver and covers six states in the western United States.

To transfer complaints to another circuit is how federal courts in recent years have dealt with high-profile ethics cases.

Judges who ask to transfers these types of complaints do so to avoid conflict-of-interest issues.

So Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to be on the Supreme Court of The United of America and is presently working AND NOW they are checking on his ETHICS!

Now you know the idiom, “A country of laws not of men” which is bantered around like it really means something. It falls into that “Rule of Law” bull shit so often held up as some kind of sacred screed as it’s explanation runs on ad nauseam.

Usually being preached by some of the slickest criminals in our very own government!

The biggest setback to this entire “Rule of Law” business is that those with money and societal status have a far better chance of getting AROUND the law than a regular citizen and if you’re poor …….. forget it baby!

But even if you forget the poor little rich frat-choirboy Kavanaugh who is just the current special privileged token to get a job on connections alone and view the entire system that we pride ourselves …………. well, if you believe it, you are deceiving yourself.

Whether you realize it or not WE better duck because it is not only Deborah Ramirez that is getting Kavanaugh’s penis waved in her face! Oh sure it’s ok …….. he’s just drunk ……. just close your eyes.

Oh hell, Mitch McConnell has already kissed it!

THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG: a bin Laden story.

Now everyone knows when it comes to fowl stories Tubularsock is on top of his game. Some even go as far as to say that Tubularsock is for the birds. Whatever!

Tubularsock just loves a good story and as luck would have it it is, THE SAME OLD STORY.

tube-bin

So let’s start at the beginning.

Mohammed bin Laden and his tenth wife Hamida al-Attas fucked and had little Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden.(an interesting fun fact is that Bin Laden’s name was as long as his 6’ 4” body when he became an adult. Could that have been some kind of sign?)

Osama’s dad had 58 children from 22 wives but as Sharia Law requires he only had four wives at a time. Damn rules!

Now like any good Moslem dad Mohammed divorced Hamida soon after Osama was born. ( Which may or may not tell us something about what Bin Laden was like as a baby.)

And Bin Laden’s mother then married a man named Muhammad al-Attas, who worked at the bin Laden company. (Sure, Tubularsock wonders just how many of the 22 wives ended up with bin Laden company employees. Just one big happy family. Just imagine the Christmas party, oops.)

Ok. Let’s fast forward ……… is this fun or what?

There is enough agreement that Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden was born. In fact Tubularsock has not seen any documentation to date to question that this did not occur.

The problem? How did, when did, and who did die and was it bin Laden at all. There’s the rub!

So what is clear is bin Laden was born from there on, a story but “facts” ….. NOT SO MUCH!

It has been reported that Osama was 6’4” or maybe 6’6” tall. Or maybe less. It occurred to Tubularsock that math and measurement was an early achievement of the Arab World but no one even thought about getting out a measuring rod?

Remember The Navy Seals AFTER THE SUPPOSED KILLING of Bin in his bedroom laid down beside his crumpled bloody body to judge how tall he was ….. wow, those Navy Seals are kinky fuckers and none-too bright.

With all the equipment that they carry no one thought a measuring tape could be handy? Very poor planning if you ask Tubularsock. (you may have noticed no one has asked Tubularsock)

And after the unarmed old man in his bathrobe is blown apart by massive gun fire THEN they start to wonder if it was Bin or not? (side note to self: don’t hang out with Navy Seal bat-shit-nut cases)

In terms of personality, bin Laden was described as a soft-spoken, mild mannered, left handed man who used a cane.

Because Bin never exhibited any Fred Astaire moves it was assumed the cane was for health reasons. His bodyguard CONTENDED Soviet chemical weapons were to blame for his malady but reporters SPECULATED that kidney disease was the cause.

The CIA BELIEVED that bin Laden had Marfan syndrome or kidney disease.(Wright, Lawrence. The Looming Towern. New York: Vintage, 2006.)

The CIA THOUGHT that the possibility of kidney disease was credible. They concluded that bin Laden did not need dialysis, but does suffer from kidney stones.(Robert Windrem. “CIA is looking for a few good doctors.” NBC News, Dec. 29, 2004.)

On July 1, 2002, Time Magazine reported “. . . that physicians who analyzed photos of bin Laden determined that he PROBABLY suffers from secondary osteoporosis, which is often related to diabetes and kidney trouble”. (“Bin Laden Alive as of Late December”, Reuters; Sun Jun 30, 2002.)

Are you getting the picture? CONTENDED, SPECULATED, BELIEVED, THOUGHT, PROBABLY these are descriptive words for we don’t know shit about bin Laden’s true health condition.

Tube science rockets

Now David Ray Griffin, who Tubularsock has very high regard for concluded that Osama bin Laden died in late 2001 or 2002. But when you look closely at Griffin’s claims his evidence is based on rather weak information, if you ask Tubularsock. (you may have noticed no one has asked Tubularsock)

David Ray Griffin states the following five things from his article “Osama Bin Laden: Dead or Alive?” to show that Bin Laden is dead:

“1. The CIA up until mid-December 13, 2001, had regularly been intercepting messages between bin Laden and his people. At that time, however, the messages suddenly stopped, and the CIA has never again intercepted a message. (maybe he figured out he was being listened to?)

 2. On December 26, 2001, a leading Pakistani newspaper published a story reporting that bin Laden had died in mid-December. ( oh! a leading Pakistani newspaper, then it must be true)

 3. Osama bin Laden had kidney disease. He had been treated for it in the American  Hospital in Dubai in July 2001, at which time he REPORTEDLY ordered two dialysis machines to take home. (see below)

 4. In July of 2002, CNN reported that bin Laden’s bodyguards had been captured in February of that year, adding: “Sources believe that if the bodyguards were captured away from bin Laden, it is likely the most-wanted man in the world is dead.” (maybe they were on break)

 5. The United States has since 2001 offered a $25 million reward for any information leading to the capture or killing of bin Laden. But this reward offer has produced no such information.” (until now)

But when you look at all five of these examples and follow them out they are all based on conjecture NOT HARD FACTS. Even Number 3, the Dubai hospital information can be called into question if you look at it.

The one reported “fact” that bin Laden was in the American Hospital in Dubai in July 2001 and according to CBS News “. . . was being given kidney dialysis treatment in a hospital in Pakistan . . . the night before the 9/11 attacks” was first reported by the French newspaper Le Figaro.

The story was drawn from a leak from French intelligence (according to The Guardian) and not only provided bin Laden’s hospital visit but also the story that the CIA Bureau Chief “. . . was seen in the lift, on his way to see Bin Laden, and later, it is alleged, boasted to friends about his contact. He was recalled to Washington soon afterwards”.

The hospital “emphatically” denied that bin Laden was admitted to the hospital and the CIA denied that their bureau chief visited. Oh gosh, just who can one believe?

And then there is the kidney dialysis treatment itself.

CNN reporting on Pakistan’s president, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, speculation that bin Laden had likely died of kidney failure was then supported by CNN’s medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta who proceeded to evaluate A VIDEO with some earlier photos of bin Laden and concluded “. . . that he appeared to be in the last stages of kidney failure”.

From this Tubularsock would not go on record that bin Laden died in 2001 or in 2014 either. But what is clear is that whatever story the United States Government comes up with will be and is A LIE. That is the only FACT Tubularsock can draw from all of this bullshit.

Oh, but there’s more ……. wouldn’t you know.

According to Salon, in the article, The Many Deaths of Osama bin Laden on May 1, 2011 Justin Elliott writes:

“The false reports of Osama bin Laden’s death began almost immediately after Sept. 11, 2001, and persisted at a rate of at least once or twice a year, every year. The reports — generated by (usually anonymous) statements by American officials and a dizzying array of foreign sources — often generated international headlines.

Here’s a sampling:

July, 2002 FBI counterterrorism chief Dale Watson tells a law enforcement conference of bin Laden: “I personally think he is probably not with us anymore, but I have no evidence to support that.”

August,2002 Popular conspiracy-mongering radio host Alex Jones announces, citing high-level Bush administration sources, “that bin Laden died of natural causes and that his family has given the body to the CIA.” Jones added, “they’re gonna roll him out right before the election, he’s on ice right now.”

May, 2003 French military analyst announces that bin Laden was killed in an American air raid in Tora Bora shortly after the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.

February, 2004 Iranian Radio reports that bin Laden was captured in the Afghan-Pakistan border area “a long time ago” — but the official announcement was delayed because “Bush is intending to use it for propaganda maneuvering in the presidential election.”

April, 2002 The Israeli press picks up an account from a radical Muslim London newspaper: “We now report that the al-Qaeda organization has announced the death of Osama Bin Laden.”

September, 2006 French intel document says that Saudis believe bin Laden had died of typhoid in Pakistan.

June, 2008 Citing two unnamed officials, Time magazine reports that a recent CIA study has concluded bin Laden has long-term kidney disease and “may only have months to live.”

April, 2009 Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari tells the media that his country’s intel services “obviously feel that [bin Laden] does not exist anymore”’

But even here Justin Elliott shows bias by starting off his report with “The false reports of Osama bin Laden’s death . . .”

An interesting link that Tubularsock found in these travels to find bin Laden is:

http://www.newsmine.org/content.php?ol=9-11/binladen/death/fbi-%20says-bin-laden-probably-dead.txt

You will discover here that Osama bin Laden has spent more time dead than living. Which in itself is an amazing feat for this amazing man.

So all the attack toward Seymour Hersh and his article on the re-death of bin Laden on May 11, 2011 is just another bin Laden death. The only thing it lacks is the Dairy Queen sightings with Elvis.

But it could be the true death of bin Laden or it could just as easily NOT be his final death.

So it might be helpful for a quick “fill in the blanks” historically for you and this little video made by Tubularsock in 2007 may help you recall what all this Afghanistan business was all about.

If you ask Tubularsock ……. I LIKE BIN LADEN AND ALWAYS DID. (BUT NOBODY ASK TUBULARSOCK)

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?

You know, Tubularsock thought he’d never see the day when Dick Cheney and George Bush would support ISIS and their “enhanced interrogation” methods. That is impressive!

Cutting off people’s heads isn’t barbaric it is standard policy for Cheney and Bush.

Ask Valerie Plame and Joe Wilson.

So Tubularsock just can’t wait for some U.S. military special op soldiers to get themselves captured by ISIS. And Tubularsock can’t wait for the ISIS videos of the different techniques that Dick and George enthusiastically support be shown on YouTube.

No really, Tubularsock is really excited. As you know the CIA destroyed the torture videos they took of the CIA doing it ….. sure it was against the law to destroy those videos …….. but shit, we are all looking forward not back!

What? Did you miss that memo?

No ……. it’s all good. Put anything up Dick’s and George’s ass and they just love it. Might even remind them of the Bohemian Grove.

cheney torture club

But what is really great is that the U.S. Government has come out of the closet on the entire torture thing. Now what a freeing experience.

You see at one time in our history and you do realize the American military has ALWAYS tortured (look into our fine attitude in the Philippines) but it was hidden and condemned as not a noble thing to do.

Don’t you remember? It was something those Japs did, and later the Gooks did. Hey, they were yellow people what else would you expect? Oh hell, yes even some white people did it both the Ruskyies and the Krauts tortured too but hey they were Communists and Nazis so what do you expect?

  

But Americans NEVER would do torture …….. really go back and watch the old World War II movies!

America had a better trained citizens army that had standards of conduct above all the rest.

Don’t you remember? Oh how could you …….. how silly of Tubularsock to forget  ……. we are all looking forward now!

Tubularsock will have to reread that memo.

The odd thing was that the United States, the country that stood above the rest as a beacon of decency had a SCHOOL FOR TORTURE. Talk about confusing the image.

That school was the U.S. Army’s School of the Americas. But like any good torture school it was rebranded in 2001 as the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation. Oh yes, rebranding it. What is surprising is that they didn’t call it “Happiness Farms”!  Hey, TORTURE as a product. How convenient, Tubularsock can see the ads now.

And yep, they still teach their students how to torture ……. that’s their purpose!

But of course they say it differently: “. . . cooperation among the participating nations and promote democratic values, respect for human rights, and knowledge and

understanding of U.S. customs and traditions.”

Now here’s a hint ……. see the loophole?

“ . . . understanding of U.S. customs and traditions”

And because Dick and George has brought torture out of the closet it is now part of America’s Customs and Traditions!

See, it’s all good now.

Just a side note: Brazil has just released a torture report this week and it detailed a pattern of killings and torture during a period of military dictatorship from 1964 to 1985.

And guess who happens to be mentioned as a major contributor to this pattern of killings and torture ……… THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Proving once again that it really is a Custom and Tradition of our country and Dick and George proudly stand behind this killing and torture because IT’S AMERICAN!

An interesting point that’s fun is the report by Brazil’s National Truth Commission is only 2000 pages long as opposed to the U.S. Senate’s report which was 6700 pages long. Which only goes to show you that we just have more Customs and Traditions to deal with in our country.

And the VERY BEST part …….. Brazil released all 2000 pages to the public! But our grand “democracy” released kicking and screaming only 524 redacted pages to the public. With even the likes of John Kerry calling Diane Feinstein before the release to warn her that the release may cause safety concerns to Americans.

TUBE QUESTION:BUSH TORTURE

The amazing thing to Tubularsock is just how high the stack of bull shit goes.

The only people in the ENTIRE WORLD that don’t know the amount and level of torture and murder this country does is the American public. The ones that when the planes hit the world trade towers just couldn’t fucking figure out ….. “WHY DO THEY HATE US?”

That same public are the ones that can’t figure out why so many black citizens are upset about being murder in the streets in this country like every fucking murder was the first time it happened!

The same racist pattern that Dick and George support and promote in dealing with all those little brown “terrorists” is the same racist pattern that is supported and promoted by the police in dealing with minority citizens within the United States.

The “general public” doesn’t see the treatment being dished out every day so when it comes bubbling up to the surface they see it as an isolated incident whether it’s in the streets of Ferguson or in the streets of Baghdad.

What they don’t understand is that it is a systemic problem of our Customs and Traditions!

When Insane Obama came to office with all that HOPE & CHANGE shit, people really did fall for the bull shit hook line and sinker. And the reason Tubularsock used a fishing reference here is because if you were awake you could tell it was FISHY from the get-go. In truth, if you weren’t brain dead even before the get-go!

Lets look at the big step in stopping torture that Mr. Step-an-Fetch-It Obama put in place.

tube order13491

“Interrogation Techniques and Interrogation-Related Treatment.  Effective immediately, an individual in the custody or under the effective control of an officer, employee, or other agent of the United States Government, or detained within a facility owned, operated, or controlled by a department or agency of the United States, in any armed conflict, shall not be subjected to any interrogation technique or approach, or any treatment related to interrogation, that is not authorized by and listed in Army Field Manual 2 22.3 (Manual).” 

Wow, impressed? Sounds good doesn’t ………..

Want to know the loophole? Want to know why Obummer DIDN’T stop torture even NOW ……… and now means now, today. And we don’t need to look backward because we are in NOW! Nothing has changed ……..

  1. an individual in the custody or under the effective control of an officer, employee, or other agent of the United States Government . . .
  2. detained within a facility owned, operated, or controlled by a department or agency of the United States
  3. in any armed conflict

Get it yet?

1. Obummer’s executive order still permits “rendition”—the transfer of a terror suspect to another country for interrogation.

Boy, that was simple ………….

  1. No orders to stop were given, to the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), a clandestine force composed of elite fighters from several branches of the US armed forces. JSOC had run its own secret detention centers in Iraq.

You remember, right? ……. clandestine, that means “secret” so don’t tell anyone.

  1. And torture is still conducted at Guantanamo but they call it by different names so all’s good.

 

When the United States ratified the Convention Against Torture, it required that the United States would extradite or prosecute those who commit, or are complicit in, the commission of torture.

You know that was one of those international treaties to make the world a better place and we signed it. Or rather it was that old mentality fucked up Ronald Reagan that signed that treaty. The guy who condoned the murder and torture programs in Latin America that Brazil is still dealing with to this day. Not to mention Chile, Nicaragua, Argentina, Honduras ………………….

The Convention Against Torture that Ron signed for the U.S. states in Article 2 that:

1. Each State Party shall take effective legislative, administrative, judicial or other measures to prevent acts of torture in any territory under its jurisdiction.

2. No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat or war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification of torture.

  1. An order from a superior officer or a public authority may not be invoked as a justification of torture. . . .

But hey, don’t you worry bout a thing!

Because the notorious March 2003 memo written by John Yoo, who was then deputy assistant attorney general for the office of legal counsel, said Bush’s wartime authority had priority over any international ban on torture.

So there you have it ……….. isn’t law fun ………. just takes one guy with a law degree to negate the law. And not only laws of the U.S. but laws of the WORLD! How convenient, don’t you think?

But the Convention Against Torture also had Article 4 which states that,

1. Each State Party shall ensure that all acts of torture are offences under its criminal law. The same shall apply to an attempt to commit torture and to an act by any person which constitutes complicity or participation in torture.

But of course John Yoo said that that can’t apply because a President’s WAR POWERS negates ALL laws on torture ……. and he did that with only ONE memo.

Shows you how far we have come in America. At the Constitutional Convention of 1787 to create the LAWS OF THE LAND it took Jefferson, Adams, and Franklin several drafts before they created the LAWS OF THE LAND ……… John Yoo, one fucking memo!

Next time just a tweet will do …… that’s progress!

But yet the Convention Against Torture also had Article 15 which states that,

Each State Party shall ensure that any statement which is established to have been made as a result of torture shall not be invoked as evidence in any proceedings . . .

Oh wow ……. there goes all those Guantanamo kangaroo trials now doesn’t it?

Not according to John Yoo’s memo.

In fact,  on January 8th 2006, John Yoo publicly argued that “. . . there is no law that could prevent the President from ordering the torture of a child of a suspect in custody – including by crushing that child’s testicles”. Sweet.

The Constitution of the United States is the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND!

And United States Constitution in Article 6 states rather clearly that:

“This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.”

And Tubularsock agrees with none other than Condoleezza Rice – Bush’s National Security Advisor and then Secretary of State when in 2005 she stated,

“Torture, and conspiracy to commit torture, are crimes under U.S. law, wherever they may occur in the world.”

Even though to date she hasn’t turned herself in to the authorities.

obama says

Yes,  “there is no one above the law.”

And Tubularsock is in 100% agreement with our Fuhrer . Oh my, Tubularsock meant to say our ahh, well Fuhrer!

But there is a loophole ……… can you see it?

Ok, let Tubularsock explain:

You see “there is no one above the law” but you have to understand the system.

There are some citizens that can’t get into the building ……. they are barred! Mostly the very poor and the mentally ill.

There are some citizens that have the stairs and can fill out the forms and march them up to the top floor courtroom.

There are some citizens that have the escalator and they fill out the forms and glide up to the top floor courtroom.

There are some citizens that have others fill out the forms and ride the elevator to the top floor courtroom.

And then ……. there are just a limited number of citizens that have others fill out and deliver the forms and ride the express elevator to the top floor courtroom. They don’t have the time for the law.

And then there is an extremely limited number that have others fill out and deliver the forms and their representatives arrive by helicopter above the top floor. THEY are above the law ……and so are their friends! They don’t have time for government interference.

That is the legal structure in reality in the United States so now being clear about how the system works how many convictions for torture and supporting torture do you think will be executed?

Tube thumb down

Well save your energy. You don’t  have to hold up even one finger.

But with all the laws that are and all the laws that aren’t. With all the justifications for it and all the arguments against it,

it all boils down to this …………..

IT IS JUST WRONG ……. THERE IS NO CORRECT WRONG ……. IT IS JUST PLAIN WRONG TO TREAT ANYONE THIS WAY! PERIOD.

AND IF YOU CAN’T FEEL THAT, THEN YOU ARE ONE FUCKED UP MOTHERFUCKER, YOU REALLY DO NEED HELP.

Tube heading fire

 

Have you ever wondered why the New York Times is unable to spell out FUCK in their newspaper that is supposed to be an historical record. Or SHIT and CUNT. How about NIGGER?

But if Tubularsock says as they do on TV and in news articles the N-word or the F-word or the S-word or even the C-word you know exactly what it means. Don’t you!

So what is the difference?

But Tubularsock does have to admit that using Ka-Ka for Shit is just repulsive!

But more importantly …………

What does this say about our society that these words as well as pictures of penises and breasts are taboo but ramming a broom stick up some guys rectum or putting electricity to his pee-pee or slamming him against the wall until he’s unconscious or water-boarding him to the point of drowning is acceptable.

Oh, you think it’s not?

If a CNN commentator says FUCK on TV the network could be fined a 100 thousand dollars by the FCC.

But if a CIA agent or a member of United States Military does any of the above torture techniques they OR THEIR superiors are not taken to jail. Not even fined.

If FUCK is worth a 100 thousand dollars ………..

Just what should ramming a broom stick up some guys rectum be worth?

Do you remember at the height of the Iraq War those who lost a son as collateral damage was paid $2000.00 for compensation for the loss. The same price the United States government paid for the loss of a Toyota Pickup. Sweet.

And even the term COLLATERAL damage ……. think about that. COLLATERAL as worth of a human life? …… COLLATERAL?

You see in a capitalist society everything is based on its “worth” in dollars and cents.

That’s the way we roll.

Take some time to read what the CIA agents and American Military Personnel did to prisoners under the Bush-Cheney Administration and then tell me just how horrid have we become as a society?

Why haven’t the collective WE not demanded that everyone involved in this travesty of inhuman barbarism been taken to trial for CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY!

What is stopping us? What is stopping you?

paper ready

Well, assassinating Martin Luther King, assassinating Malcolm X, assassinating the Kennedy’s what happened? Nothing!

Burning down LA, breaking up Berkeley, tearing the fabric of Chicago in ’68 …….. Those actions scared the power structure.

The difference between the two? The assassinations were done BY the power structure, the civil disorder was done by THE PEOPLE.

That is what is so scary.

We once again are at a time that the power structure has to be scared.

THE TIME IS NOW!

POWER TO THE PEOPLE AND BURN BABY BURN still have a nice ring to them!

Tube CIA SECRETS heading

Oh wow! Let Tubularsock sit down right now! Sorry, but this is the most underwhelmed Tubularsock has been for some time.

The CIA report has been released and man, like almost 500 hundred pages of information we already know.

It’s regular bull shit in and regular bull shit out.

How many of you already know the United States tortured prisoners and lied to everyone about it?

Unanimous. Well I’ll be damned!

The Wall Street Journal’s website published an opinion piece in which former CIA Directors George Tenet, Porter Goss and Michael Hayden and Deputy Directors John E McLaughlin, Albert Calland and Stephen R. Kappe defend their agency’s record.

They said that the CIA report was “. . . a one-sided study marred by errors of fact and interpretation . . . and had missed opportunity to deliver a serious and balanced study of an important public policy question”.

Well Tubularsock agrees. No really. Tubularsock has agreed with assholes before so it isn’t the first time. So to settle this question about your-side vs their-side crap Tubularsock suggests ………. LET’S RELEASE ALL 6000 PAGES rather than the 500 pages that are “marred by errors of fact and interpretation”.

What do you say to that boys?

If Tenet, Goss and Hayden (fucking assholes all) and the other lackeys REALLY wanted “a serious and balanced study of an important public policy question” wouldn’t they be the first to demand the release of ALL the pages?

There is not a question that if those 6000 pages were released that we would find out what Tubularsock and you know already, that the United States IS A TERRORIST STATE and needs to have a regime change NOW!

But alas …… not going to happen.

Nor is anyone going to be arrested and tried for breaking American and International Laws. NO.

So here we go again ……… If one of those BLACK, BLACK, BLACK African leaders had done even 3000 pages worth of outrageous disgusting shit then fucking John Kerry and fucking step-and-fetch-it-Obuma would be right in front of the world leaders calling for removing the tyrant to save the people.

But the WHITE MAN does it ……… all’s good. What laws?

But hey. Black people in America can work hard and get good schooling and have at least one of their daddies working for the CIA and they too could be President of the United States. Just something to look forward to NOT BACKWARD!  Screen Shot 2012-07-21 at 11.55.56 PM
