Bubbles. … by Fred

Science! from Arstechnica

Bubbles. So many bubbles. No houses though. That market went full sub-prime so long ago that even the Kurds didn't have a war, or did they? I plum forgot. Too many bubbles. Somebody ought to pop a few. Popping bubbles in fun. Don't you remember doing that as a kid?


Just don't inhale. Trust me, I'm a guy with a nom de plume writing a blog post on the internet.  So don't inhale; this is what happens when you inhale:


P-ewwwh! What's that I smell? Swamp gas. You know where you get that, don't you? From popping Sub-Prime Politician Bubbles.

Like this one:


The transcript. Pop goes the ….Sub-Prime Politician Bubble.

If only we had a women to lead us out of the Swamp. To save the children. Here Nancy saves the Kurds. 

Nancy saves the Kurds

Pop, pop, pop-pop-pop. What's all that popping? Why that's our NATO ally, saving the Kurdish Children. Oh, wait, Trump hurt your feelings?  What did you say Mr. President? A third rate politician? Wrong. Definitely a Sub-Prime Politician. A third rate politician wouldn't look that good while having a temper tantrum.

Have you seen the newest White House press release of the brave man in action:

I love the smell of sub-prime politicians

"I just love the smell of swamp gas in the morning."

I think he inhaled one too many. He would look much better riding a bear though. Unfortunately there will be no closing of the bear gap today. Which is sad. I can think of a few bears who would love to get chauffered to work like this one does:


Putin's bear on the way to work. With two aides. Heck, I would even consider letting a politician use me in a photo-op if I could get chauffered to work. Unfortunately for our photographers, American bears know what swamp gas smells like. Which is why you can't find an American bear in a swamp. You only find alligators, snakes, and politicians. Though sometimes the last two confuse people. Let me help – politicians don't rattle before they strike and actual snakes won't pick you pocket. Keep that in mind the next time your are in a swamp or a politician's office.

It doesn't look like I'll be getting chauffered to work in a sidecar car anytime soon. Which reminds me, I should really be looking for a job, because, as a two term president who managed to get impeached and still stay in office said, it's the economy, stupid.

Speaking of which, can anyone tell us about what's happening with that Canada-America trade agreement? It would be terrible if somebody was interferring with our negotiations or their elections. I would hate to have to rely on the guys in a TreeHouse for information; what do they know? 


Oh. Pop, there goes the collusion narrative another sub-prime politician bubble. There sure seems to be a lot of bubbles drifting up from the Swamp today. 


Just look….Not a qualified Surface Warfare Officer, definitely not a bubblehead. An Admiral who never commanded a ship, or won a war. Just -Commando. Yep, naked as the emperor with no clothes:

"We are the most powerful nation in the world because our ideals of universal freedom and equality have been backed up by our belief that we were champions of justice, the protectors of the less fortunate." 

NeverTrumpMore, NeverTrumpMore quoth the McRaven.

"… if this president doesn’t understand their importance, if this president doesn’t demonstrate the leadership that America needs, both domestically and abroad, then it is time for a new person in the Oval Office — Republican, Democrat or independent — the sooner, the better.

Admiral, you should stand for election rather than undermine those who win them. Perhaps the President will show he understands the importance of our ideals of defending Freedom by commissioning a new USS Panay. That will show everyone our resolve to back up our beliefs in freedom. I’m sure they’ll love that in Hong Kong. 

Speaking of the Far East, I wonder how people would feel if somebody there told Americans how to behave?


Pop the bubbly boys. I'm sure that's going to help the sales of New Bolshevik Association merchandise in the People's Republic.

We really shouldn't be working with repressive regimes. If only we had some folks who new something about changing them.

Brennan Clap

Well, speak of the Devil.

“During the outset of the 2008 presidential campaign, Brennan’s TAC employees in the State Department’s Passport Office ensured that certain information on Obama and his relatives were deleted from State Department files. The mini-scandal, which also involved the passport records of Obama’s opponents, Hillary Rodham Clinton and John McCain, were also deleted from the files. Brennan was rewarded for his work on behalf of the Obama campaign with the number two job on the National Security Council and, ultimately, the directorship of the CIA after Petraeus’s downfall. Brennan makes few decisions without first discussing them with Obama.”


How'd that old song and dance go? Pop goes the …..

"Brennan reportedly urged members of the «Council of National Security and Defense,» the supreme authority created by the leaders who ousted President Viktor Yanukovych in a February coup, to put down the rebellion by pro-Russian Ukrainians in the east with extreme force. Brennan and other U.S. government officials have also been responsible for identifying secessionists in the east as «terrorists,» which is part of a major U.S. and western intelligence propaganda war against eastern Ukrainian secessionist leaders and the Russian government. 

The intelligence on Brennan’s secret visit to Kiev primarily came from Yanukovych loyalists who remain embedded in the Ukrainian government, as well as Ukrainian Communist Party officials still serving as members of the Ukrainian parliament." <ibid>


Ah the good old days. When nobody in Ukraine investigated corruprtion and in America you could create your own company and have your friends in government give you contracts. It was so much fun you would sing for joy:

“We got all the friends that money can buy

So we never have to be alone

And we keep getting richer but we can't get our picture

On the cover of the Rollin' Stone..”

I would buy five copies for my mother. 

"Americans who’ve blown the whistle over serious offenses by the federal government either spend the rest of their lives overseas, like Edward Snowden, end up in jail, like Chelsea Manning, get arrested and ruined financially…" <rolling stone

This one should testify in open congressional hearings.

Whistleblower spoke to Schiff aides before filing complaint.


Now, here at the end, I find I've gotten myself into a witches brew of mixed metaphors. Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble. That's the trouble, when you try to pop that bubble.

It looks like there is one  - having fun – there in the swamp, trying to pop that bubble. So much fun I bet he, too, will soon break out in song; probably one that even New Yorkers will love. 

"I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps
And find I'm a number one, top of the list
King of the hill, a number one…"

King of the hill; a children's game. Like popping bubbles. Pop enough and you win, you are number one! Yet there will always be people who think he's number two, in more ways that one. But by my math he's #45. And you know that now that the end is near, he's going to tell us he did it ….


His way.

    I think you’ll like this, Fred. National Lampoon song, 1970 or ’71.

  2. rho says:

    I’m so thrilled about the possibility of Hillary joining the Presidential race for 2020 again after she’s denounced all non-snake candidates as Russian assets.
    As we all have seen before, only Hillary can beat Trump!

  3. Ishmael Zechariah says:

    Hillary Clinton called Tulsi Gabbard a “Russian Asset” ( https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/tulsi-gabbard-should-take-hillary-clintons-russian-asset-anti-endorsement-as-a-compliment ). Your subtle humor is probably wasted on these people.

    Enjoyed the song. I’ll be singing it in my head all day.

  5. different clue says:

    Would the DemParty really do that? If they broker their convention to nominate Hillary all over again, then I will just have to vote for Trump all over again.

  6. Fred says:

    That’s called a change of command ceremony. As to Melania, you sound jealous.
    “”trepassing of powers”” I like that phrase tough, it sounds exactly like the European Parliment in action. Lose control of the legislature by having the Brexit Party become the biggest winners and then assign all the leadership positions to open borders remainers. Folks over your way are going to have lots of fun with your own citizens over the next few years.

  7. Fred says:

    Hilary should run. If Trump remains in office another 6 years the lid will blow off the whole corrupt clinton/DLC machinery. Did you see the news out of Baltimore? They are just following the example set by Hilary’s staff.

  8. seward says:

    Likely well-known: But people that knew Brennan at Langly (where I worked 10 years as a contractor — “green-badger”) said when he was station chief in Saudi Arabia he likely went Moslem. He appeared with the King at the time observing the huge annual pilgrimage to Mecca, where no infidel can attend on pain of death. Can’t confirm it. But might explain a lot.

  9. j says:

    Colonel, TTG, Larry,
    Retd. Adm McRaven appears to be calling for an open revolt against the POTUS.
    Retd. Adm McRaven if he is so against the POTUS, then why doesn’t he run for the POTUS position instead of his whining.
    McRaven bitches a lot, but in any of his pieces against the POTUS, I’ve not seen one word of how McRaven would correct what he sees as wrong.
    Guess that McRaven doesn’t understand that Mom and Pop America are sick and tired of our kids in uniform being used as the world’s police, and serving the national interest of foreign nations and groups, instead of serving what is real U.S. national security interests.

  10. Fred says:

    You seem to have an axe to grind as you didn’t take the time to read this post or the quotes from McRaven or the link to the NYT article it came from.

  11. To match the welcome ceremony above here’s the inspection of the Guard of Honour at Buckingham Palace –
    A lot of people over here were impressed by that – affable and Presidential at the same time.

  12. j says:

    Fred, I didn’t see your McRaven part, my bad on my part. Just got a pair of new specs, and am breaking them in. I apologize. Woops.
    I don’t understand McRaven’s constant bitching, with no solutions on his part. I have no problem with somebody griping, as long as they have solutions along with their gripes. That’s my ‘axe’ if you want to call it that.
    I really like your ‘bubbles’ opine.

  13. Lars says:

    So, now we know what happens when you imbibe that strawberry flavored, effervescent, KoolAid and there is a keyboard nearby.

  14. Fred says:

    Strawberry Fields
    Nothing is real
    And nothing to get hung about

  15. Anonymous says:

    Pelosi called it fred.You just don’t know it.

  16. turcopolier says:

    McRaven should be recalled to active duty and tried for any of several violations of UCMJ.

  17. Fred says:

    You mean when Obama was President there were no quid pro quos; when foreigners told him what they wanted, he said: yes sir!

  18. Fred says:

    My, she went to that country whose ruler is alleged to have killed WAPO reporter Jamal Khashoggi. I bet they didn’t discuss that. What did she get in return for deploying the Clinton Corps and the Barack Obama brigade there, in Jordan, and in Ireland? Or did she just volunteer to interfere in the foreign relations of the Republic; which are not in duties assigned the House of Representatives, of which she is Speaker and her colleagues on this trip are also membes? They couldn’t even get a single Senator to go along for credibility’s sake? Definitely a Sub-Prime move on her part.

    Hyman Minsky had quite a lot to say about bubbles, and what he had to say I have found accurately reflects and explains observable reality.
