Now Tubularsock was separating bull shit from reality with his new invention known as the BULLSHIT REMOVAL EXTRACTOR. Yes, Tubularsock knows that “removal” and “extractor” are redundant but you’ll have to admit so is BULLSHIT!

Anyway, there is not a whole lot to do in Tubularsock’s top floor corner office in his underground bunker in Oakland, CA overlooking Washington, D.C. so Tubularsock has to keep busy exposing the BULLSHIT REDUNDANCY . Hey, it’s like a quest!

Tube in bunker

ISIS seems to be ALL that is happening in the entire world if you pay attention to the maimed-street-media.

Well guess what fellow travels ………..

Not much has changed ……. it is all focus.

NSA are still spying on you …… nothing has changed. Congress spoke about being upset and going to do something BUT they went on their “Summer Recess” and then ISIS appeared and they voted to support bombing them and then called for a “surprise” break and they won’t return until the FIRST WEEK IN DECEMBER! Oh yeah, just in time for their Christmas Recess. No, really Congress is going to be in session for a good four days this year …… really? Tubularsock’s sure of it, if you count what they have accomplished!

Tube Finger Capitol

Hello …….. planet earth can you read me?

Oh, and MH-17 is still being investigated by the “international-community” (aka the united states being omni-present) and the first emphasis was that the investigation was NOT going to cast “blame” but they are going to investigate the “facts”.

Bottom line is that the Puppet-Ukrainian-Government supported by the United States shot down the Malaysian passenger plane and the Russians and the Russian Ukrainian Supporters were not responsible. Those are the facts that are coming out of the investigation but the maimed-streamed-media just doesn’t seem to notice.

And then there is ……. wait for it ……… the Kim Kardashian nude “hacked” photos!

You know in truth, Tubularsock doesn’t know who in the fuck Kim Kardashian really is but she seems to appear every time any odd international news crops up.

And seriously, have you ever seen Kim in her “regular-clothes?” It is all focus.

tubekimdiveer

How is “nudity” different?

And Tubularsock doesn’t want to pry, but when was the last time YOU took photos of yourself nude and posted them so they could be hacked?

Oh ……… the BULLSHIT REMOVAL EXTRACTOR is going off the charts so Tubularsock has to cool down the system …….. Like later!

FUCK REPORT HEASING

 

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?

Simple!

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!

tube9:11

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.

ROVE:PLATO

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!

CASE CLOSED.

Tubularsock was ask by the blog site Deconstructing Myths to contribute an article to their Mic check guest blogger series.

The opportunity is simple: To open information up to a broader audience than Tubularsock presently has and to present that information within a forum of enlightened and creative people .

 Deconstructing Myths is the creation of Jeff Nguyen, a multi-talented  fellow with the stated goal of  “. . . shed[ing] light on some of the important issues of our time.” And to find “collective solutions” to the problems found in our world today.

But the largest focus of Jeff’s work to is “. . . to deconstruct the myths many of us have been raised on through the powerful influence of the media and teachings of the dominant culture.”

That works for Tubularsock!

 

So the bottom line is simple …………. to read this Tubularsock blog post you too will have to travel to:          http://deconstructingmyths.com/

 

And I want to thank Jeff for this great opportunity ………… I am sure all of you will agree, “Tubularsock needs all the help he can get!”

Tubularsock has been extremely busy recently. It’s spring! And every spring Tubularsock takes time away from blogging to wash and clean all of his underground bunker windows. 

Starting from where Tubularsock sits in his top floor corner office overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA all the way down to the underground-ground-floor.

Needless to say it’s a large task.

But the world moves on. Regretfully I’ve seen this film before. 

Somehow in “freedom” loving America we are getting a distorted view of the EVIL RUSSIAN …….. see, I told you it’s an old movie.

Now Tubularsock just wants to clear up a little something for you just to save time.

This Ukraine-Mess was created by the United States, PERIOD.

All-that-that-stems-from-that is the U.S. attempting to BLAME Russia.

U.S. imperialism marches on and the American public is fed shit news from the likes of the New York Times giving up “journalism” to become a mouth piece for another government war, AGAIN!

Now wouldn’t you think that after Michael Gordon and Judith Miller’s false Iraq War propaganda that the Times’ editors would pay a little more attention to the crap being presented on the Ukraine?

Especially this latest bit of bull shit that Michael Gordon has been involved in over the photo proof that Russian “special forces” are involved in stirring up trouble in the Ukraine …….. like the U.S. “special forces” aren’t involved.

The Times’ has had to backtrack from Gordan’s story on covert Russian activities because the photographs proving the thrust of the story were brought into question.

Yes, Tubularsock was just as surprised as you over this entire matter.

You see the photos showed a “person of interest” with a long beard and a military patch on his camouflage shirt. Like an undercover special forces solider would wear a military identification tag right on his shirt. And a camouflage shirt at that! No really, check this out.

Screen Shot 2014-04-25 at 2.33.05 PM

Well. Not to be overshadowed by the NEW YORK TIMES’ mis-information Tubularsock took it upon himself to track this “undercover” military special forces fellow down and took this photo which Tubularsock feels PROVES BEYOND A SHADOW OF A DOUBT who may have planted this guy in the Ukraine.

NOW HERE IS THE TEST: WHICH OF THESE GUYS ARE SPIES?

NOW HERE IS THE TEST:
WHICH OF THESE GUYS ARE SPIES?

The CIA has this manual that was published in 1985 under William Casey (a true little prick) titled “Indications of Political Instability in Key Countries”.

In this manual the CIA states that “. . . demonstrations are successful destabilizing influences when they gradually increase in size and intensity, spread to other cities, increase in the number of days they take place, and when government repression of the demonstrations escalates”.

And this is exactly what the CIA is up to. Hence, the bearded guy standing out in the crowd to PROVE it’s the Russians that are stirring up the trouble.

The CIA has also been prime movers in the control of the media ……. especially that media that feeds information to the U.S. and Europe.  In Kiev and western Ukraine, the media was rallied to support the demonstrations against the Viktor Yanukovych government. But when it comes to the pro-Russian demonstrations in eastern and southern Ukraine, the Western media has been urged to be critical or out right neglectful of that coverage.

But this is what the CIA does. Destabilize populations so the U.S. can control them.

A good example of this destabilization tactic has recently been exposed with the ZunZuneo scandal, the so-called Cuban Twitter. 

ZunZuneo is the name given to a social networking platform that was largely a replica of Twitter, set up in 2010 by the United States Agency for International Development and contractors hired by the agency. The purpose was to build a base of unsuspecting Cuban users, and then introduce rumors and misinformation to destabilize the country’s socialist government.

The USAID is ostensibly a humanitarian aid organization but the rest of the world knows that they are chuck full of CIA and U.S. Military agents. Many NGO’s are used to carry out political operations and distribute money to opponents of any government that resists U.S. imperialism.

And if all that isn’t bad enough we can always call in contractors from private security companies to handle the necessary murder that has to take place and to train people to be terrorists much like we did in Syria. Remember we paid to have private contractors train al Qaeda. Just how counter-productive do you want to be UNTIL you realize that as long as destabilization takes place the U.S. keeps control.

 

Also a little side note:

Do you recall that at least three of the 911 hijackers were trained by the United States military within the United States?

And that the CIA helped to train and arm bin Laden and the boys.

It’s called blow-back when we train a group and they later turn on us ……. it happens all the time.

Is it counter-productive?

Or is it the REAL PLAN?

As long as the American public are destabilized by fear/protection they will be controlled.

THINK ON THAT BROTHERS AND SISTERS!

Tube Africa Report heading

Oh sure, Tubularsock was just sitting in his top floor corner office in his underground bunker over looking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA in a sea of tranquility from the aroma of his flowering hydroponic marijuana plantation. Few realize how much space happens to be underground and especially while overlooking Washington, D.C.

But enough about reality.

Have you ever noticed that AFRICA never gets into the news in the United States. Ok, maybe “never” is an overstatement but so little that it has earned its title as the “DARK CONTINENT” all over again.

Now for those of you who missed the history of the “Dark Continent” when you were not engaged in your early historical studies, here’s a hint.

The name “Dark Continent” was not given to Africa because of the color of the people living there, but because of the mystery that surrounded the place back when the Europeans visited there. And this holds true today.

Don’t think so? Ok, name ten African nations that exist right now ………..

Now we do get the news when the genocides happen or terrorist activities because that is a significant part of the accepted narrative. And the U.S. and Europe want to take those who are doing the genocides and terrorist activities and put them on trial as long as the U.S. and Europeans aren’t tried for the genocides and terrorists activities they create.

It has always been that way. And the U.S. and Europe doesn’t want to place any responsibility for these slaughters on those who sell the guns, rockets, and tanks to the crazy bastards that use them on their people. Primely the U.S., England, France, Israel, Russia and China do the gun running.

But it is most interesting but not at all that surprising to discover that there is and has been for some time a huge amount of corporate positioning in the entire continent.

You see, Africa has a shit load of natural resources that “we” want to “assist” them in removing them from their possession. What a surprise.

And on top of that …….. gosh, speaking of slave labor, and no worker safety or environmental regulations, well the place is awash with corporate capitalism at its best!

So here are some fun facts ……….

Tubularsock can’t report on Africa without sitting down with a bowl of Chinese noodles and some rice wine and list how much China is involved in the extraction movement in the  “Dark Continent”.

tubechina

The Chinese seem to have a stack of cash they have picked up from the war torn American Government and are investing heavily in East Africa’s recently uncovered stores of mineral resources.

Of course they have to compete with the Brazilian, Japanese, Indian, Irish, and Anglo-Australian investors. Gosh, everyone seems to love Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia.

According to the Wall Street Journal – ChinaRealTime once extraction projects are in full swing in 2020 the mineral wealth could be between $17-$24 billion a year.

But like all mineral wealth the damn stuff is under the fucking ground so the Chinese are prepared with the cash to partner up with the likes of Tullow Oil Plc. which is leading exploration activities in Uganda.

In Kenya the government awarded China’s Fenxi Mining Group development rights for coal reserves which will help Kenyan cement and steel industries to create the very same unbreathable air that the Chinese have developed so well in Beijing!

And then there are roads to be built and holes to be dug and train tracks to be laid and ports to be constructed all without those silly environmental considerations that slow progress down. Because we all know that humans are not responsible for climate change because there is nothing that we do that affect the world we live in except improve the GNP!  

As you are well aware as jobs are created and the asphalt is spread the workers will need to be provided with 60” HDTV’s and iPhones and who can do that better than Walmart!

tube walmart

From the venture capitalist point of view,  Africa is seen as the major investment frontier because of its young population, untapped resources and economic instability.

Now WALMART’s push for a foothold in Africa came a few years ago when it bought controlling interest in Massmart in South Africa and is currently pushing into Kenya. That attempt hit a hurdle after Kenyan retailer Naivas said it was no longer selling a controlling stake to the US company’s South African subsidiary, Massmart.

Naivas chairman Simon Mukuha had said in August they were looking to sell a majority stake, 50% plus one share, to Massmart, to bring in fresh blood and ideas.

“We are fattening our cow. As and when we are ready we will do that (sell) but as it is now we are not,” Gilbert Mwangi, the administration manager at Naivas, said. “They (talks with Massmart) are off. We are not selling now.”

Massmart CEO Grant Pattison, . . . said the company was still keen on entering Kenya.

“We are not rethinking our investment decision in Kenya. We are still looking for a partner . . .”. Massmart runs 29 stores in 11 African countries outside South Africa that contribute about 8% of its total sales.

A Massmart and Naivas deal could have fallen victim to the tightness of the market in the region. “Smaller supermarket chains are in such high demand that they would ask for a horrendous price.”

Now with all this Wall Street Journal gibberish you may have noticed there was NOT ONE reference to people. That is significant, in fact very significant. NOT ONE PERSON is considered! It’s all “. . . failed to keep up . . .”, “. . . still opening . . .”, “. . . 8% of its total sales . . .”, and “. . . major investment frontier . . .” !

In there lies the crux of the entire Capitalistic System and it’s eventual downfall from implosion!

One can only disregard PEOPLE so long and then the extreme shift takes place. Don’t think so ……. Tubularsock knows it’s true … proof is in the pudding. Just wait.

But even as Walmart worms it’s way into Africa that doesn’t change the fact that Robert Mugabe turned 90 and Zimbabwe spent about $1m on the celebration. And what better way to spend all that money than with releasing 90 balloons. Wow. Costly balloons.

Tube Mugaba Birthday

Mugabe has been in power since 1980 and still can whip out an hour long speech with vigor. Holding his fist in the air he proclaimed that Zimbabweans didn’t hate the British, who were their colonial masters, but loved their own country more. Sounds like bull shit to Tubularsock.

In contrast, Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi nationalized the oil industries and attempted to create a United States of Africa. With his image of a revolutionary, Col Gaddafi inspired South Africans to fight for their liberation, funding and arming the anti-apartheid movement as it fought white minority rule.

Funny how Libya just happened to have a civil war and Gaddafi found himself dead ………… maybe balloons are the way to go!

Which brings Tubularsock to the role of the United States in Africa.

And what is that role? 

Destabilization!

Now in order to counter the Chinese and other nations from moving in on Africa’s natural resources The United States rushes in to “PROMOTE DEMOCRACY”.

The United States has long maintained influence and indirect control in Africa through financial institutions such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and African Development Bank. These financial institutions are the tools the U.S. keeps Africa in debt.

Over the last decade, America has quietly expanded its military presence throughout Africa. And the main tool of this conquest ……… AFRICOM!

Now this goes back to Baby-Bush’s Reign of Error period. As Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Theresa Whelan stated in 2007,

“AFRICOM is about helping Africans build greater capacity to assure their own security.”

But in truth Vice-Admiral Robert Moeller, in 2008 stated that AFRICOM’s goal was “protecting the free flow of natural resources from Africa to the global market.”

And in 2010, Moeller wrote  “Let there be no mistake. AFRICOM’s job is to protect American lives and promote American interests.”

A good example of American interests is the US-sponsored break up of Sudan and the creation of South Sudan.

With the oilfields being located primarily in the south of the country, the US led the charge to dismantle Sudan and create a South Sudan that would be dependent on US finance and military muscle for its very survival.

The United States has attempted to destabilize Zimbabwe throughout the last decade, going so far as to impose crippling sanctions and attempt regime change in order to block China’s influence.

And all this is well represented in the perfect news allegory out of Ghana.

Now, Tubularsock does admit that his own habit of following news out of Ghana is sketchy at best but how could he not report to you this top news story from GNA (Ghana News Agency).

It was reported that Two lovers got stuck during sex in Sunyani.

Now granted, it wasn’t a big news day in Ghana.

“A man and a woman who were having sex in a guest house in Sunyani were reported to have got stuck on Wednesday when the man could not remove his penis from the woman’s vagina and that it took the timely intervention of the police to whisk the inseparable lovers from the scene.”

An attendant at the guest house said that the two lovers booked the room for 30 minutes but when their time elapsed, they failed to come out.

He said he knocked at the door but heard some unusual sound from the room and informed some traders in the market.

“When we forced the door open we saw the unexpected as the two lovers were lying  on the floor in torment,” the attendant said.

When the Ghana News Agency got to the scene at 2:30pm, activities at the market had halted and people had gathered at the guest house.

The police moved in, put the two inseparable lovers in a vehicle and drove them away.

Some of the market women said the woman was a trader from Berekum who sells soap every market day. But the man seemed to have been not from this area due to his hair style.

tubesex

Some of them suspected that a curse might have been placed either on the man or the woman and said rituals had to be performed before they could be separated. Seems reasonable to Tubularsock when asked on his return flight from Ghana. 

But there is a clear message in this story. Tubularsock sees that whenever the United States gets involved in “protecting it’s interests” it just doesn’t know “when to pull out”!

Yes, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq are all good examples of GETTING IT STUCK!

 

And it will be the same outcome in Africa, I’m afraid. 

But the U.S. destabilization work isn’t the only gang-bang taking place in Africa to thwart  the Chinese.

France and Japan have agreed to cooperate on military and economic issues as was stated by Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida when he said in Paris recently, “The agreement will open up a new dimension for our cooperation on security and defense.”

Which means that these current France-Japan talks focused largely on a stepped-up imperialist intervention in Africa. Japan pledged to support ongoing French wars in two former French colonies, Mali and the Central African Republic.

Well it’s good to have friends.

And the beautiful thing about the military build up in Japan is how it is explained ………

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe calls it “proactive pacifism”. Now what could possibly go wrong with THAT?

But let’s not forget Great Britain and her African adventures. And they are many but the one Tubularsock is most fascinated with is the ARMS-SALES INSURANCE SCAM.

This is priceless.

The English Government in the last fifteen months have shipped 44,000 guns to East Africa. And like any good government agency the House of Commons Arms Export Controls Committee admitted that the government’s Business Department which “approves” these massive weapons exports stated that in order for this river of arms to keep flowing it, “. . . did not thoroughly assess where the weapons were going”.

Some of these guns happened to end up into the hands of the “rebel” fighters in Libya and Syria but that isn’t the fun part ………… many of these weapons have ended up into the hands of Somalian pirates.

Now hold it ……… that’s still isn’t the fun part.

Here’s the fun part …… “Who benefits from Somalian piracy in the Gulf of Aden? According to a study conducted by the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW), insurance companies have seen a windfall in profits from the Somali pirate attacks, with insurance premiums sharply increasing.

And the English Government is providing arms to the Somalian Pirates?

Another oddity here reported in Forbes Magazine in 2010 is that if one was willing to buy from Willis Group Holdings plc. their highest insurance package per voyage ($35K) somehow, you would completely avoided being targeted by Somali pirates.

Funny how shit works, isn’t it.

But the Somalian Pirates are just the diversion. So when you are looking for which nut shell the Pirates are under in the shell game the British Government has funnel £2.2m into the UN’s Office on Drugs and Crime’s, “counter-piracy program”, in Somalia to help fund the reinforcement police and maritime forces which will defend British interests in the region.

Now Tubularsock just can’t help from noticing that the terms “counter-piracy program”, “counter-insurgency program” and “the war on terror” all seem to sound alike. Hmmm ……… Could there be something going on here?

hqdefault

It may be as simple as all these governments use the same Public Relations firm in London …… what do you think?

So how does Tubularsock see the future of Africa?

EASY!
