PISSING IN THE PUNCH BOWL. 2020

 

Now Tubularsock wants you to stop!

Clear your mind.

Close your eyes ………. relax.

Ready? Open Your eyes.

Now look at these two.

Now.

Keep your mind clear and open.

Can you REALLY make a case for either of them
LEADING EVEN A HORSE TO WATER?

This is an insane world that we live in and always
has been insane.

But the difference is that it has been exposed
openly
and the disfunction is blatant!

Let Tubularsock remind you what
LEADERSHIP happens to be.

What does a LEADER do?

Just in case you have forgotten.

Leaders set direction, build an inspiring vision, and create something new.

Leadership is about mapping out where you need to go.

And a Leader is dynamic, exciting, and inspiring.

NOW.

 Look at these two.

Damn, it is clear to Tubularsock!

WE ARE BEATING A DEAD HORSE.

FORGET THE WATER!

 

 

 

FEDERAL JUDGE ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT?

 

Ok crime stoppers what a surprise.

Just hours after an assassin murdered the son and badly wounded Federal Judge Esther Salas’ husband the “unknown assassin” turns up a short time later with a “self-inflicted” gunshot to his head before he could be arrested or questioned by authorities.

How convenient is that. And with little to go on just how was he reached so quickly?

Now as the story goes the crime was committed on a Sunday (7/19/20) afternoon in a wealthy community with the assassin disguised as a FedEx delivery person knocking on the front door.

Only one neighbor saw a “delivery person” jumping in a car and leaving the scene but was, at the time, unaware that a crime had been committed.

Talking about speedy police work, right?

And then some media immediately focused on the killer’s “dislike of feminism” that “may” be the cause of his attempted attempt to kill Federal Judge Esther Salas citing a court case that the “assumed killer” had lost in Salas’ courtroom some time ago.

You know just how deadly men take “feminism”! Going as far as killing one man and wounding another man to show just how anti-feminist one can be.

And then other media reported that because Sales’ husband was a defense attorney that maybe the assassin was after him.

Finally one finds out that Federal Judge Esther Salas had just been assigned to the
Epstein-Deutsche Bank case. Just what could that have to do with it?

Now who would even think that that case would be important enough to cause an issue? EVEN IF, the assassin had previously worked for a US/Israeli Intelligence-Linked Firm.

NO RED FLAGS THERE!

Isn’t justice grand. And to find an unknown assailant in record time only to find that he had killed himself. Case closed. Let’s all go back to impressive police work.

Oh, Tubularsock really doesn’t want to bring this up but by following the bread crumbs you find that Roy Den Hollander the killer had worked for Kroll Associates Moscow Office and his job was to manage and upgrade Kroll’s delivery of intelligence and security in the former Soviet Union from 1999 to 2000.

And before that Roy worked as a lawyer in Russia specializing in legal and business issues, including international financing and marketing. And to spice up his life Roy even married a Russian woman who he bragged was “part of the Russian Mafia”.

Now lets get an overview of exactly who Kroll Associates happen to be. They are known as “A Private CIA of Wall Street” for the well connected. Their executive staff are made up of former CIA, FBI, M16, and Mossad agents. All in the family of intelligence and security types who French Intelligence, according to The Washington Post, says are a front organization FOR THE CIA.

The funny part is that Deutsche Bank just happens to be one of the leading banks in the world that launders money for the rich and powerful and has for a very long time. In truth it is a major part of their wealth management portfolio.

Oh, don’t tell anyone! It’s illegal in, ahhh, well …… just don’t tell anyone.

And golly gee when they get caught like when the New York state Department of Financial Services settled with them for their dealings with known Epstein-linked accounts, the Bank had to pay a $150 million fine ……… kind of like bus fair money compared to the billions they made in the process. That’s the rich for ya’!

Deutsche Bank over the past seven years has paid over $14.5 billion in fines and STILL profits. Just imagine the volume of money laundering that is taking place to profit with that much “fine-loss”! Oh don’t worry, it is a write-off. Just part of doing business.

So as not to bore you with too much information Tubularsock stopped following the bread crumbs when Tubularsock reached the yellow brick road made of gold bars and decided to give you an easy follow the money rendition of all of this ……………

But that isn’t as easy as one may think because once you enter the Kroll Associates connections Tubularsock found that EVERYTHING sleazy has passed through their doors and just maybe all tie together. Unfortunately it is tough to get a neat bow on the top because after all, they work in secret.

It appears from an overall view, the blackmail of wealthy and powerful men and maybe some women in the weird sex scandal of Epstein’s activities is really small and rather unimportant compared to Epstein’s money laundering operations.

Seems like the sex activities was more an extra curricular activity than the main deal going down. And we are talking about billions of dollars here that was being moved about through false bank accounts and shell companies.

When the question is still asked, “where’d Epstein’s money come from” that question is EXACTLY the reason he did so well. No one seems to know.

The sex crap developed as fantasy-trip’n-out from the boredom of having “everything” but in truth being empty inside.

Oh well, enough psychology for today.

So lets wander down this gold bullion highway and just see if there are any of our friends that just might give us some insight in how Epstein’s operations operated when it came to MONEY.

Kroll Associates has a very strong relationship with Deutsche Bank. In fact, Jules Kroll started a credit-rating agency named the Kroll Bond Rating Agency and it has become a “revolving door” between its senior management and Deutsche Bank executives. How convenient.

Kroll Associates, Jules Kroll himself had what has been called “an odd meeting” with Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine Maxwell’s father, shortly before his death. Many believed Robert was murdered. He had indicated to Jules that he was concerned about some “. . . suspicions and unexplained events”.

Kroll Associates was being asked to investigate and perhaps protect Robert but he “fell off his boat and drown” before any protection agreement had been activated.

And then there is Kroll Associates being hired by Harvey Weinstein to “. . . to harass and cyberstalk women who had accused him of sexual assault”.

Seem that Kroll Associates are a one stop shop for all your deranged ideas and perversions.

Harvey was a one time “business partner” with Jeffrey Epstein and has been accused being involved with Jeff and Ghislaine “shared” women. And perhaps with girls as well.

Weinstein was a “frequent visitor of Epstein’s residences”.

But just to round out the significant and strategic importance of Kroll Associates it may be interesting to know that it has boasted its tie to the Bush family having Jonathan Bush (George Bush Sr.’s brother) serving on its corporate advisory board.

And Kroll Associates were employed by Bill Clinton’s first presidential campaign.

And of course Donald Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner could very well have some serious explaining to do from potential revelations in the Epstein-Deutsche Bank trial.

It may be able to explain Trumps dealing with Russian organized mobsters buying up Trump Tower Luxury Townhouses at over-market pricing.

As well as the firing of Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Berman by Attorney General William Barr.

Seems Berman was looking into Deutsche Bank more closely than the Epstein mess and that investigation would put more scrutiny on Trump’s finances which could expose Trump’s dealings.

Barr has now appointed “Jay Clayton — who previously represented Deutsche Bank, one of President Donald Trump’s most significant business creditors, from allegations they facilitated Russian money laundering.” (Raw Story -6/19/20)

So it seems that this attempted assassination may have been a WARNING SHOT to scare off too much scrutiny in this entire Epstein/Deutsche affair.

Especially when you take in the fact that in December, 2019 Epstein “personal banker” at Deutsche Bank, Thomas Bowers, who was the chief of Deutsche Bank’s Private Wealth Management division in New York from 2012 to 2015, was found dead in his home.

Of course it was signed off as a suicide by hanging.

But is interesting to note that it was Thomas Bowers who had signed off on “unorthodox”
loans for Epstein BUT FOR DONALD TRUMP AS WELL.

Sure there has been a lot of death by hanging, drowning, and gun shots to the head around Kroll Associates activities, don’t you think.

Seems like Deutsche Bank has some pretty harsh worked related penalties if you ask Tubularsock.

For sure, Tubularsock won’t be found with any “late payments” when it comes to the Deutsche Bank credit card! THAT YOU CAN BANK ON!

 

LESSER OF TWO EVILS: THE STORY

 

There has been an old wives’ tale which has been promoted Tubularsock’s entire life, so far, and it is this:

When it comes to Presidential Elections it is always the choice between THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS.

And the fun part is that far too many people still haven’t been convinced that it really applies to ALL THEIR representation in the halls of government.

You no longer have to attempt to dig for corruption in office because they now do it so blatantly with NO CONSEQUENCE what so ever! Case in point, Nancy Pelosi’s Corporate giveaway including bailing out her husband’s business interests. THAT is what paid for that expensive ice cream in her freezer drawer of her $24,000.00 refrigerator, perhaps!

And yes the citizens that believes that their representative care at all about them and their needs are not bright and being non-thinkers haven’t even awakened to the FACT that the President and the Congress and the Supreme Court doesn’t even have any interest in representing them.

That is why the so called “American Dream” has become the “American Nightmare”.

AND BOTH OF THESE REQUIRE THE AMERICAN PUBLIC TO REMAIN ASLEEP!

That is why the so called “American Middle Class” has diminished and the American Poor and Homeless has skyrocketed in the last thirty years.

Have you noticed?

YOU ALREADY KNOW THIS. And if you don’t it may surprise you that you are dead.
Hell, just as well.

Because if you don’t know this then you can not be alive to the reality of what has been going on around you for your entire life. Even if your 8th grade civics book told you differently! WE’VE BEEN HAD!

As Tubularsock watches “people” (zombies really) cheering Trump or Biden it is utterly amazing!

If you have paid attention the “LESSER OF TWO EVILS” has boiled down to exactly what we as a nation are experiencing this election.

We have FINALLY boiled it down to CORE-EVIL.

The American broth has been totally boiled away. And there is absolutely no intelligent or even inspiring leadership ANYWHERE on the national horizon. And what do you expect?

After years of voting for the lessor we were bound to get to the bottom ……….. AND WE NOW ARE THERE!

If you are stupid enough to believe that fucking Biden is going to be better than that despicable Trump then you are soooooo fucking wrong.

These guys are just pawns of the people they represent, THE RICH!

NOT YOU DUMB FUCK!

Need proof?

Who was bailed out back when the economy tanked under the pseudo-Kneegrow Obummer?

THE BANKS.

And pretty much wiped out the Black middle class as well as fringe homeowners who needed to be backed to keep their home investments but SAVED the BANKS without anyone (ok, one guy) having to take responsibility for plundering the American economy. They got away Scott Free and EVEN got huge bonuses! And Obummer got paid off with outrageous speech fees after he left office from those BANKS he served.

He even joked with them that he was the only thing between “them and the pitchforks”! That is just how clear he was of his role in the robbery!

This was the Democraps with Step-en-Fetch-It Obummer being the good “boy” for the “good ol’ boys”.

And who was bailed out in our current economic crisis?

THE CORPORATIONS.

With pocket changed grudgingly given to the working class.

This was the Republican’ts with the White-less Orange Turd being the naughty “boy” for the “good ol‘ boys”.

And yet people are unwilling to TAKE RESPONSIBILITY and go to the streets and refuse to allow this election to proceed until a responsible leader can be found. Stop the train until we get new wheels!

Wouldn’t THAT scare the rich and powerful if the citizen awakened?

Alas, SLAVES RARELY REVOLT.

Cheers.

VIOLENCE BREEDS VIOLENCE

 

There are so many discussions and Think Tank papers on how to address massive non-violent protests by the authorities. Or for that matter ANY hostile situation.

And by far the most prevalent view is to deescalate any situation rather than confront it and attempt to “overpower” the confrontation.

Or bottom line NOT TO ESCALATE the confrontation.

Where that technique is used the results are FAR MORE non-violent than the SHOW OF FORCE technique which ALWAYS brings about violence from BOTH sides ending with a CALL FOR MORE protestors coming out to the next protest.

Time and time again this is the way these issues play themselves out.

And sadly because in this current crisis the police in many cities are creating MORE violence and open lawlessness than the protestors which will create a reckoning that will be violent and continuing as time goes on.

A growing direction of escalation and greater violence by ALL can only shift with intelligent leadership at the local level because on the national level the bar for intelligent thinking rests rather low with an Orange Creation with a small penis which attempts to wave it around causing his bone spurs to become inflamed and keeping him from the battle.

But he is willing to send others in his place to enforce his dream of grandeur spending his time scared and sniveling in the White House Bunker dreaming of fucking Ivanka while she is holding the Holy Bible! Go figure.

 

 

OK, NOW LETS GET SERIOUS!

 

 

HALT! HALT!, ZEIG HEIL!

 

WHEN THE OBVIOUS SPEAKS,

IT MUST BE SAID!

 

 

 

 

 

LIES WE LIVE BY: AMERICA

The main thing Tubularsock appreciates about OrangeDufus is that he has brought to the light what the United States has been hiding from its own citizens from its founding and this deception was and is to this day the deliberate fabrication that our country REALLY believes in and stands for Justice for all, Freedom for all, and a system that rewards the hard working with a future of prosperity for all.

And as for “moral” leadership? Just when did that EVER exist in our history?

Nope ……. never happened! And YOU know it and your neighbors know it but you push on believing it is true because IF IT IS NOT then who’s running things?

To Tubularsock, it is much like the entire 9/11 facade ……… the story of what occurred is a lie of the highest order but even today when it is brought up people will go the long way around the room to avoid facing the “possibility” that their government lied to them.

WHY? Simple. “If Daddy lies to me then who is in charge and who will PROTECT ME!
Even if the next day he beats me again.

And even more outrageous to Tubularsock and every THINKING person is that “OUR” government LIED us into the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Iraq War to name the short list and the citizens will follow like sheep into the next one and even allow their children to die …………. FOR NOTHING. NOTHING!

It is tiring to watch but the fear and propaganda is fast and furious. And people worry about the fucking Russians ……… go fucking look in the mirror America! YES YOU!

And with all of that we are entering into the 2020 election and if you haven’t noticed, NOTHING HAS CHANGED!

The Roman Bread and Circus in form of the CELL PHONE and social media runs more shit faster than in any other time in the history of the world BUT the population may be dumber. Go figure.

And with G5, when in full operation, we’ll ALL have an ORANGE TAN like the OrangeDufus mixed with fried brains with soy sauce courtesy of Huawei!

And yet the beat goes on …………

And we have the OrangeDufus to thank for the exposing all of this on the obscene level because he is so unfiltered.

He is a TOTAL ASS (not a 1/2 ass) and “thinks” (always a questionable endeavor with him) that what he does is “normal”. A classic deranged mind on steroids.

As opposed to the Step-en-fetch-it Kneegrow, Obummer who talks the smooth jive but was a slave to wall street banks and the military industrial complex and was paid handsomely for bending over and taking it up the ass for the gipper!

And we can’t forget, the total imbecile BabyBush and his fucking CIA daddy for lying us into war with Iraq and destabilizing the entire Middle East using the EVIL PERSONIFIED Prick-Cheney as his lead homey! Fuck them both!

Or how about President Blue Stain Dress Slick Willy and his besty friend Jeffrey Epstein spending all that time on Petalphile Island. Presidential material for sure!

And not last and not least but Tubularsock just has to bring forth head up his ass Alzheimer-Ron. A low time low for presidential standards.

Does any of this point to why the U.S. has been on a rapid decline which may really end with the Dumb-Shit-OrangeDufus?

But what OrangeDufus has done for us is to highlight just how corrupt and dysfunctional the U.S. political establishment is and has been ALL ALONG.

And that is why Bernie is a breath of fresh air and the reason that his CHANGE IN DIRECTION is so frightening the the status quo.

The corporate Democraps will lose their corrupt grip on the system and so will the corrupt Republicant’s!

And you can tell just how scary it is because the Clinton/Obummer wing of the corporate Democraps are willing to let the OrangeDufus win rather than support Bernie!

WHY?

And the reason is as simple and as obvious.

With a Bernie win THEY lose power and the corrupt money they take along the way because they hold that power.

The Republicants are in the same boat!

You see, what we have here is THE CORRUPT DEALINGS of both as well as either/or parties: The Democraps and the Republican’ts and they trade back and forth the power so as to keep their corrupt government contracts and money flow.

Bernie is the monkey wrench in the gears of corruption and THAT is why both parties will do whatever necessary to stop Bernie and save THEIR gravy train. EVEN IF HE WINS!

And in the process ………. FUCK YOU MR. AND MRS. AND MISS AND MS. AND YOUR PRONOUN OF CHOICE AMERICA!

Now don’t get Tubularsock wrong here. Bernie has his own baggage. His total foreign policy record is not to the liking of Tubularsock BUT it is not out of line with what traditional American foreign policy has been …….. complete domination of the world!

No, Bernie’s strength lies in SOCIAL REFORM and fairness within the U.S. boarders.

Medicare4All, the Green New Deal, free public college, universal free child care and always the resounding chorus of “HOW DO WITH PAY FOR THIS?”

We pay for this the exact same way we pay for CONTINUOUS WAR! That’s how.

Ever notice that there is ALWAYS enough to bloat the Pentagon Budget but never enough for child care? Ever wonder why?

Simple answer: there is more profit for the few with WAR than helping the citizen with a chance to live a prosperous life. Think on this! It explains a lot!

NOW.

Even with a Bernie win (if that is even possible in a system of cheats and scoundrels) those who control the power are not going to give up nor are they going to roll over and play dead.

The powerful will stonewall the system BIG-TIME to prevent any changes where they lose power and PROFIT, period!

So IF Bernie does win, it will take those who elected him not to go back to sleep like American voters always do after an election (you know, “let daddy handle it from here”) but to stay active as a mass movement and support the changes needed aggressively.

Like: Shut down the system until it responds to the changes necessary for a free and fair DEMOCRACY!

Stop buying shit until change happens. Remember a loss of profit in this system speaks louder than photos of starving children!

Can this happen? Well, “Tubularsock Has A Dream”, and unlike other dreamers Tubularsock won’t be standing on any motel balconies any time soon.

 

THE RUSHING RUSSIANS ARE COMING!

Gotta’ admit the Establishment Democraps have a lack luster imagination when it comes to Danger.

It is all really sooooo, LAST CENTURY.

Tubularsock comes from a time when the BIG fear was that the Commies from the Soviet Union were going to (any second now) send over to Tubularsock’s schoolroom an ATOMIC BOMB and blow Tubularsock and his classmates to “kingdom come”!

The “protective” school authorities showed all of us movie after movie after movie of the effects of the ATOMIC BOMB as it exploded and sent it’s radio active shock waves that decimated every building for miles around. Swept those buildings away like toothpicks.

And Tubularsock at about ten years old had an early political insight.

IF the ATOMIC BOMB did the kind of damage that was demonstrated on those films they were showing us AND OUR PROTECTORS’ solution was to “duck and cover”, usually under a pupil’s school desk or table THEN they didn’t have a clue of how to protect us from total destruction.

That was when Tubularsock conducted his first political disobedience and of course trouble ensued. Tubularsock REFUSED to “duck and cover”!

But no one could counter Tubularsock’s stated observation of “movie knowledge” that “duck and cover” was absurd!

The reaction was almost as swift as Tubularsock’s vision of the Russian’s attacking. Tubularsock’s teacher attempted to shame Tubularsock and proceeded to send Tubularsock to the principal’s office (AFTER the drill was ended).

The principal reprimanded Tubularsock for not “following directions of the teacher”.

And Tubularsock’s father was ………. OUTRAGED at Tubularsock’s audacity of questing the “power structure” but MORE importantly EMBARRASSING HIM!

The lesson for Tubularsock?; clandestine gorilla tactics were the ONLY way to survive until Tubularsock’s draft resistance and Vietnam War Protesting days where Tubularsock and his father parted ways.

Which is the long way to getting to the Establishment Democraps, Bernie, Trump and the Russkies.

The entire Russian election involvement is like throwing a hand grenade into the air and then “duck and cover”. Total BULLSHIT!

It is not that the Russians, the Israelis, the Chinese, the CIA, the NSA and every other Tom, Dick, and Harry haven’t got their hands in the “influencing of the election pie”, that is how elections work throughout the world. THAT is the reality!

SO GET OVER THAT! “They do it!” “We do it!” It is the nature of the manipulated universe we dwell in.

Here is the bottom line:

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

A candidate that wants to continue crony-capitalistic-fascism ……….. Trump!

A candidate that wants to continue crony-capitalistic-fanciful-neoliberalism ……. Biden, Buttigieg, Klobuchar, Warren, Bloomberg!

A candidate whose “focus” is to give the power of governmental direction BACK INTO THE HANDS OF THE PEOPLE! ……….. Sanders.

That is your choice!

WHAT IS THE DIRECTION YOU WANT THE COUNTRY TO GO ……….PUT YOUR VOTE THERE!

There is this constant refrain that Tubularsock hears in discussions about placing one’s vote and that is:

“I’m not going to vote for Sanders because I don’t think he can win against Trump.”

Tubularsock’s answer: NOT IF YOU DON’T VOTE FOR HIM!

Fucking wake the fuck up, America!

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW!

Where in the world have you come up with the idea that a fucking BILLIONAIRE of either party gives a shit about YOU! You have got to be kidding!

Shitttttttt, GET REAL!!!!!!!!

REPUBLICAN’S WITH THE BENDS.

Tubularsock “loves” the remarkable chimera of calling out William Barr as a “man of the highest character and unquestionable integrity” by three men who are so lacking in those characteristics that there just don’t have the ability to even recognize integrity and character.

Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and Kevin McCathy released a joint statement on Tuesday, calling Barr a “man of the highest character and unquestionable integrity.”

And the humor value can not be underestimated.

These three complete assholes believe that their stance on favoring a man who has equally bent over with them and sold out as well, somehow will generate “respect”?

It appears that the Republican’ts leadership will be buying a lot of anal lubricant to continue their careers.

When the pigs in the pig farm won’t smell the bacon their future is not stellar.

Bottoms UP!

 

WILLIAM BARR IT RUBS OFF!

OH YEAH ………. it is going to get wayyyyyyyy worse.

The Senators who were either too blind, which does happen when one has one’s head up one’s ass, or just too afraid of a “TWEET” or are just stupid are now going to see what they have created.

How on earth did any of them expect ANYTHING different.

And this missed placed belief that an “impeachment” WITHOUT removal would do anything rather than embolden a raving-mad-diarrhea-driven-stool like Dump ……… come on!

Is this really what Republicans are about ….. Dictatorship? Tubularsock doesn’t really think so. Tubularsock finds that the current Republicans misunderstood the depth of just how much of an irrational sociopath Trump really is and will now be attempting to catch up with the disaster they have unleashed. We shall see.

Oh not, of course, Lindsey Graham he likes it up his ass but Bill Barr, Mike Pence (ok maybe Mike ….(“Mother” won’t have anything to do with that!) but it’s ok with sheep as long as you’re Christian, whew … Mike’s safe. Baaaa?

Oh how Tubularsock digresses.

Bill Barr has become an embarrassment to the “rule of law”. Yes he is a conservative and yes he believes in a Strong Executive, but HANDING OVER THAT POWER to a pathological lying sociopath?

Just a little overboard, Bill.

But now Bill, ……… you’ll sink with THAT ship, you stupid fuck!

Tubularsock does hope at least that Christine, Bill’s wife, will move on after all this and find a man that has principles. Forty five years with a toady is like too long!

It’s sad really.

Tubularsock’s mother always said, “Be Careful who you associate with …… it rubs off!”
